Rejoicing In The Work of God



Greetings,

I'm curious as to your thoughts of Proverbs 17:5? Whoso mocketh the 
poor reproacheth his Maker: and he that is glad at calamities shall 
not be unpunished.

When Louis Theroux asked a WBC member if she rejoices in calamities 
her response was "definitely". 

What would your interpretation on this verse be?

Thank you for your time.

Dear friend –

The verse is clear on its face. Don’t do it. Our members did not 
and do not do it. Glad is not the same as rejoicing. The Word of 
God is a perfect, blessed symphony of goodness, purity and safety, 
all day, every day, and nothing incongruous or inconsistent about 
it! He with ears to hear will hear the still small voice saying 
“This is the way, walk ye in it”. 

So take your verse and obey that. Don’t mock the poor, and do not 
be glad about calamities. BUT rejoice at the Work of God that
fulfills ALL of His word! Rejoice when you see the judgment! Rejoice 
that you have been spared because you KNOW that you deserve death
and hell, and except for the saving blood … the redemptive blood
that was spilled to pay that debt that I owe, giving me right and
title to the righteousness of my Lord Jesus Christ, which covers 
me like a cozy and wonderful robe, I would suffer the same exact
fate, i.e. walking through this earth without hope and without 
God, then die in hopelessness, never to see the glories of heaven,
never to be permitted to sing the praises of my Lord, a fate 
worse than anything. Rejoice that there IS punishment for the 
wicked, in line with the plain Word of God, keeping His pronounced 
promises that judgment SHALL come!  

Please consider these words carefully, and see the distinction 
between – HA HA!, Serves you RIGHT, YAY, Gotcha! and Thanking God
with great rejoicing for his unfolding providence that confirms 
His words, ever so perfectly:

Psalm 58:1 ¶ To the chief Musician, Altaschith, Michtam of David. 
Do ye indeed speak righteousness, O congregation? do ye judge 
uprightly, O ye sons of men?
2 Yea, in heart ye work wickedness; ye weigh the violence of your 
hands in the earth.
3 The wicked are estranged from the womb: they go astray as soon 
as they be born, speaking lies.
4 Their poison is like the poison of a serpent: they are like the
deaf adder that stoppeth her ear;
5 Which will not hearken to the voice of charmers, charming never 
so wisely.
6 ¶ Break their teeth, O God, in their mouth: break out the great
teeth of the young lions, O LORD.
7 Let them melt away as waters which run continually: when he 
bendeth his bow to shoot his arrows, let them be as cut in pieces.
8 As a snail which melteth, let every one of them pass away: 
like the untimely birth of a woman, that they may not see the sun.
9 Before your pots can feel the thorns, he shall take them away 
as with a whirlwind, both living, and in his wrath.
10 The righteous shall rejoice when he seeth the vengeance: he 
shall wash his feet in the blood of the wicked.
11 So that a man shall say, Verily there is a reward for the 
righteous: verily he is a God that judgeth in the earth.

Shall:  It WILL happen.  😊   

Thank you for asking.
Your thankful, friends at WBC, who fear God.

Why Do People Turn From Christ And Turn To Sin?

Dear Westboro Baptist Church,

Why do people turn from the Lord Jesus Christ and turn to such awful proud sin?

— Cari

 

Dear Cari,

For reasons that I cannot fully grasp or know, that is just what the Lord God appointed them to do. He says He gives unto every human according to their deeds. It is an up close lesson in the sovereignty of God.

“He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life: and he that believeth not the Son shall not see life; but the wrath of God abideth on him.” John 3:36

That gross darkness that children of the devil walk in was appointed to them by God Almighty who alone has the right to make appointments in His creation! See the flip side of that shameful and sorrowful appointment:

“But ye, brethren, are not in darkness, that that day should overtake you as a thief. Ye are all the children of light, and the children of the day: we are not of the night, nor of darkness. Therefore let us not sleep, as do others; but let us watch and be sober. For they that sleep sleep in the night; and they that be drunken are drunken in the night. But let us, who are of the day, be sober, putting on the breastplate of faith and love; and for an helmet, the hope of salvation. For God hath not appointed us to wrath, but to obtain salvation by our Lord Jesus Christ,” 1 Thessalonians 5:4-9

Just read these words of our Lord Jesus Christ and behold the pure doctrine of the sovereignty of God to open ears or eyes at His exclusive will. How can any right thinking person not fear and obey that God who has the keys to death and Hell and who opens and no man closes and who closes and no man can open? He alone can make and keep promises to the rebels and to those blessed to be covered by His saving blood!

“Because thou sayest, I am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing; and knowest not that thou art wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked: I counsel thee to buy of me gold tried in the fire, that thou mayest be rich; and white raiment, that thou mayest be clothed, and that the shame of thy nakedness do not appear; and anoint thine eyes with eyesalve, that thou mayest see. As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten: be zealous therefore, and repent. Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me. To him that overcometh will I grant to sit with me in my throne, even as I also overcame, and am set down with my Father in his throne. He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches.” Revelation 3:17-22

And more of His words to his beloved little church at the last days of all:

“And to the angel of the church in Philadelphia (brotherly love) write; These things saith he that is holy, he that is true, he that hath the key of David, he that openeth, and no man shutteth; and shutteth, and no man openeth; I know thy works: behold, I have set before thee an open door, and no man can shut it: for thou hast a little strength, and hast kept my word, and hast not denied my name. Behold, I will make them of the synagogue of Satan, which say they are Jews, and are not, but do lie; behold, I will make them to come and worship before thy feet, and to know that I have loved thee. Because thou hast kept the word of my patience, I also will keep thee from the hour of temptation, which shall come upon all the world, to try them that dwell upon the earth. Behold, I come quickly: hold that fast which thou hast, that no man take thy crown. Him that overcometh will I make a pillar in the temple of my God, and he shall go no more out: and I will write upon him the name of my God, and the name of the city of my God, which is new Jerusalem, which cometh down out of heaven from my God: and I will write upon him my new name. He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches.” Revelation 3:7-13

It is all about the WORD! Praise God!! Thank God!! Fear and obey God!! Seek Him and cry unto Him early,  mourning/repenting for your sins!! Don’t worry about the next rebel; worry about you! And consider these words:

“O the depth of the riches both of the wisdom and knowledge of God! how unsearchable are his judgments, and his ways past finding out! For who hath known the mind of the Lord? or who hath been his counsellor? Or who hath first given to him, and it shall be recompensed unto him again? For of him, and through him, and to him, are all things: to whom be glory for ever. Amen.” Romans 11:33-36

Quebec Floods Are From Our Lord And Create An Opportunity To Preach

“THE FLOODS OF UNGODLY MEN MADE ME AFRAID.” PSALM 18:4

This week we are praising God for the devastating floods throughout North America, bringing death and destruction from north to south. Thank God and Amen. The Lord is merciful because in truth the whole stinking, rotting mess is worthy of the same treatment. And, if the Lord wanted to do that great work it would be righteous.  Proverbs 30:4: “Who hath ascended up into heaven, or descended? who hath gathered the wind in his fists? who hath bound the waters in a garment? who hath established all the ends of the earth? what is his name, and what is his son’s name, if thou canst tell?”

These floods from our Lord create the opportunity to preach truth to our fellow man alive with us. 2 Timothy 2:19: “Nevertheless the foundation of God standeth sure, having this seal, The Lord knoweth them that are his. And, Let every one that nameth the name of Christ depart from iniquity.”

  • God is the absolute sovereign of these flooding waters. He is the one whom the Bible describes as “binding up the flood from overflowing (or weeping),” (Job 28:11), so that not a single drop of water to start to form a flood would even exist but by His ordering it to happen. His voice is on, or in, the waters, Psalm 29:3, and he “sitteth upon the floods” Psalm 29:10. Envision him straddled over these floods—like a cowboy riding a bronco—but in complete and total control—directing the destruction and death in all the minutia of it. Look at it; study it; learn from it!
  • God, with these lesser floods, reminds us of the great flood of Noah which our Lord sent to destroy all flesh. Genesis 6:17: “Behold I, even I, do bring a flood of waters upon the earth, to destroy all flesh, wherein is the breath of life, from under heaven; and every thing that is in the earth shall die.” There were 8 left alive after that great destruction. With these lesser floods he reminds all flesh that there is a great destruction by fire on the horizon. The Apostle Peter, under the Holy Spirit’s merciful influence, writes of the time soon to come: “Knowing this first, that there shall come in the last days scoffers, walking after their own lusts,  And saying, Where is the promise of his coming? for since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of the creation. For this they willingly are ignorant of, that by the word of God the heavens were of old, and the earth standing out of the water and in the water: Whereby the world that then was, being overflowed with water, perished: But the heavens and the earth, which are now, by the same word are kept in store, reserved unto fire against the day of judgment and perdition of ungodly men. (2 Peter 3:3-7)
  • This session of our preachments we tell you of Psalm 32:6 to teach repentance towards God and faith in our Lord Jesus Christ. (Acts 20:21).  “For this [—that is, for our sins;  Ecclesiates 7:20  “For there is not a just man upon earth, that doeth good, and sinneth not.”]  shall every one that is godly pray unto thee in a time when thou mayest be found: surely in the floods of great waters they shall not come nigh unto him.” The imputed righteous of our Lord Jesus Christ secured to you through the blood of the everlasting covenant, pursuant to the sovereign electing power of God and delivered to you by the Holy Spirit of power, is the only safety from these devouring floods both physically and metaphorically.  We say, repent or perish on our signs and we know that the goodness of God leadeth thee to repentance (Romans 2:4), and so we praise and magnify the Lord in His floods

Speaking of “walking after their own lusts,” there are a new brood of snakes, dressed up in cap and gown, slithering down the aisle up to the graduation podiums to receive their diplomas from high schools and colleges all across this nation during this month.  So, by the power vested in the Church of the Lord Jesus Christ (Mark 16:16) we are going to preach the Gospel outside of these dark, dark venues to say: “Ye serpents, ye generation of vipers, how can ye escape the damnation of hell?” (Matthew 23:33) From cradle to graduation you have been lied to by your parents (who have provoked you to this wrath contrary to Ephesians 6:4), by your teachers (think the National Education Association which insists upon teaching “gay is okay” and “God is a liar” from Kindergarten to 12th grade), and by your preachers who preach only “smooth things” (Isaiah 30:10); because, “the Lord knoweth how to reserve [or preserve or pickle] the unjust unto the day of judgment to be punished.” 2 Peter 2:9. We will tell you plainly that God Hates Fags, God Hates Fag Enablers, and therefore God hates the entire American educational system structure, head to toe, warp and woof. God is not going to apologize to Sodom & Gomorrah  for destroying every man, woman and child of them, for their great sin (Genesis 19), who were defined as “wicked and sinners before the Lord exceedingly” (Genesis 13:13)). But he is going to set them forth as an example of suffering the vengeance of eternal fire for all those that should thereafter live ungodly. (Jude 7) That is what his servants from WBC are  doing there this month outside of your lying graduation ceremonies. So, “be ye thankful!” (Colossians 3:15). We will deliver that message and the power of God will bring it home into your teeth.  “Is not my word like as a fire? saith the LORD; and like a hammer that breaketh the rock in pieces?” (Jeremiah 23:29).

But, little sheep, check out the first half of 2 Peter 9: “The Lord knoweth how to deliver the godly out of temptations!” We preach to the Lord’s sheep, who hear the voice of the Lord and will follow the Lord. (John 10:27). Isaiah 54:13:  “And all thy children shall be taught of the LORD; and great shall be the peace of thy children.”

So here is the bottom line of all your vaunted wisdom, you foolish and ignorant graduates who refuse the knowledge of the Lord: 1 Corinthians 1:21: “For after that in the wisdom of God the world by wisdom knew not God, it pleased God by the foolishness of preaching to save them that believe.”

Thank God and we love you at WBC. Amen.

WBC,

I have gotten worse and worse since reading the bible. I am finding that everything the bible says is wrong, I end up doing.

I am concerned that reading the bible is not getting me anywhere as I feel I am not getting better and that I am waxing worse and worse. I am afraid because I have become abominable to God and a murderer at heart, hating people and holding grudges against people. I am of my father the Devil because I have become a hypocrite and not pleasing to God. I know that God is a righteous God and that it is because I am cursed of God because I am not able to keep the commandments of God – I won’t be surprised if I end up in hell if I die (which I don’t really want) as Heaven would be more delightful to enjoy. I have tried to do good things to keep myself out of mischief but I realise that good works cannot save me but the grace of God. Oh, if only things could change in a night and God would convert me and that I could be given the courage to eschew evil and be pleasing in the eyes of God despite my ungodly past.

Have you any words of wisdom to share with me?

Thank you for your consideration.

Dear sir,

All flesh is abominable! That is why we need a Savior. He gave us words and lots of them to direct our path. If He works in us to good things, happy are we! I recommend that you read James that you read Ephesians, that you read the words of scripture with an understanding of your need to seek God for everything. Seek Him for the thoughts of your heart. Seek Him for the words that you speak. Seek Him for the steps that you take. Unless you see that your only hope is to repent and mourn for your sins and seek that help from God, you have a path of sorrow. We cannot give you anything but words – preaching and exhorting and comfort, IF you avail yourself of them and submit yourself to them. But clearly by your absence from our presence, you do not have a desire for that help.

So, the thing to tell you at this juncture is that your off and on, continual dropping of words as the years pass, are not properly directed to WBC, but to God! I urge you to get after that work, if you have ears to hear!

“If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him.” James 1:5

“Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand. Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness; And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace; Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked. And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God: Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints;” Ephesians 6:11-18

Copying and pasting chunks of scripture won’t get this work done for you. God alone can guide your steps to His good things and make you HEAR and UNDERSTAND and OBEY!

We hope all those things for you!

Your friends at WBC
