“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.
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.

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!

One commandment the Lord gave us was to go into the world and preach the gospel to every creature. And you simply cannot preach the gospel of Christ – that he is the Lord and Saviour – if there is nothing that people need to be saved from. There is no need for the blood of the lamb to wash one’s sins clean (that is, to have one’s sins forgiven and be clothed in Christ’s righteousness), if there is no consequence for sin. Friends – there is a grave consequnce of sin. The wages of sin is death – and we’re not talking about a person’s mortal death – everyone dies. We are talking about the second death – spiritual death. We are talking about eternal hell. So, out of obedience to our God and out of love for you, we hold this sign: god hates sin enablers. To enable sin is to:
- Condone it
- To legistlate for its legitimacy
- To preach sin as acceptable practice
- To be an apologist for
- To sanitize, normalize, or entice to
- To enable sin is to permit, empower or equip another to sin
- It is to make possible, allow, or to speak of sin as not sinful
- To enable sin is to fail to warn of the consequence of sin
Consider the scripture at Romans 1, verse 32:
“Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things (that is, sin) are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them.”
To have pleasure in them that commit sin is in itself sin. To encourage sin is sin. You don’t have to be committing the sin to be sinning. You just have to act in such a way as to grease the skids for the continuation of sin.
You can therefore see how this sign, and the bible message thereon, is appropriate preaching for nearly every venue, event or gathering.
When you claim that any sin is a civil right, you enable sin.
When you preach that God loves the sinner, but just hates the sin – you are only speaking of God’s view toward his elect – but we know, from the scripture, that God hates all sinners that are not his elect – just take a look at Romans 9:13 for this short, but sweet and airtight, case. That should be a sober warning for any and all men.
When you attribute the outpouring of God’s wrath, in what the old preachers called ‘earth judgments’, to merely ‘natural phenomena’, mentioning the goofy anthropomorphized ‘mother nature’, you enable sin – as you are encouraging people to look at God wrong and attempting to strip him of his sovereignty.
When you advise or consent to people getting abortions, you enable sin. A baby has a beating heart withing a few short days after conception. It is a great shame, a great sin, and you enable that sin when you don’t view it as exceeding sinful.
You enable sin when you pronounce that homosexuality is merely an innocent alternate lifestyle or say that what people do is their own business. Homosexuality is not okay, it never was okay, and it never will be okay. Do not be proud of your gay son. Your gay son is a sinner and you are too for acting that way.
You enable sin when you, as parents, teachers or preachers, sanitize sin to young people – any sin. Abortion, fornication, transsexuality, homosexuality, etc. Every one of you ought to mourn for those great sins and repent.
You enable sin when you yourself are immodest or when you teach that to your sons and daughters. You should never teach a young person to attempt to allure someone to lust after them. You should teach modesty, sobriety and being chaste.
You enable sin when you encourage people to persecute the servants of god for preaching the gospel to you. That is a form of holding (or choking out, or suppressing) the truth in unrigheousness, and is one cause of the wrath of god being revealed from heaven.
You enable sin when you, as media agents of any sort, condone, glamorize or exalt sin in your stories, films, songs, plays, books, and works of art. God hates sin enablers.
You enable sin when you normalize a practice that god has deemed as sinful. Society, in the main, has done this with divorce, remarriage, adultery and fag marriage. There should never be a divorce. There should never be a remarriage. Marriage should be one man and one woman.
You enable sin when you teach another doctrine than the gospel of Christ, or that religions should peacefully coexist – a one truth, many paths approach. It is false doctrine. It is heresy. It is lies.
You enable sin when you practice idolatry. Religious holidays are one form, but exalting anything in preeminence above Christ in your mind and heart, and encouraging others to do so, is enabling sin.
God hates sin enablers.
America Copes With Wild Men
The below is a transcript of Westboro’s latest video news, which you can watch, here: https://youtu.be/DxfRW2_3yS0
This country seems to be in rather perpetual tumult dealing with the issue of thousands of people from the Middle East coming here, or wanting to come here. It has been the thorniest issue President Trump has been faced with. Some people – including federal courts – seem hell-bent on letting them all in. Others don’t want any of them here, with rare exception. As usual, the last source looked to by Americans in dealing with a problem is the Bible.
But we say “get a clue, America.” Read the Bible already. In Chapter 16 of the book of beginnings – i.e. Genesis – we read of Abraham and Sara growing impatient with God’s promise of an heir, and then taking things into their own hands. Sara encourages Abraham to father a child with Sara’s maid, Hagar. The result was two-fold: Hagar has a baby boy and Sara now despises Hagar. Out of this mess Ishmael is born and Hagar flees. The angel of the Lord then finds Hagar telling her: I will multiply thy seed exceedingly, that it shall not be numbered for multitude. * * * Behold, thou art with child, and shalt bear a son, and shalt call his name Ishmael: because the Lord hath heard thy affliction. And he will be a wild man; his hand will be against every man, and every man’s hand against him; and he shall dwell in the presence of all his brethren. (Genesis 16:11, 12).
Ishmael is the father of these multitudes (seemingly endless) of people from the Middle East trying to get here and who are the primary subject of Trump’s famous Executive Orders on immigration. All of those countries over there – such as Syria, Iran, Iraq, Somalia, Libya, Saudi Arabia, Sudan and Yemen – are populated for the most part with Ishmaelites and, God’s word for it they are wild men (or as one version says, wild asses or wild donkeys). They are dangerous, and our experience in this nation confirms that. Indeed, most so-called terrorist attacks on this country in recent years have been at the hands of these people.
Now, let’s take a quick look at what some of the men of old have said about this Bible passage. One says this:
“A wild-ass man, i.e. a man like a wild ass, fierce and untamed, and unsettled in his habitation; living in deserts and mountains, warlike and violent, exercising himself continually in hunting beasts, and oppressing men.”
Another says this as to the text “his hand will be against every man”:
“Descriptive of the rude, turbulent, and plundering character of the Arabs.”
Still another wise writer makes these observations:
“Signifying, that he would be of a quarrelsome temper and warlike disposition, continually engaged in fighting with his neighbors, and they with him in their own defense; and such the Arabs his posterity always have been, and still are, given to rapine and plunder, harassing their neighbors by continual excursions and robberies, and pillaging passengers of all nations, which they think they have a right to do; * * * The greatest as well as the smallest tribes are perpetually at variance with one another, frequently occasioned upon the most trivial account, as if they were from the very days of their first ancestor naturally prone to discord and contention.
Now, can there be any question that these are accurate and fair descriptions of these people who scheme and plot to get into this country from the Middle East? Is it not reasonable to assume that these people do not have America’s best interests at heart? Does not history confirm these characterizations of this people? Think ISIS. Think 911. Think the lost Iraqi War. Think San Bernardino. And so on.
Mohammed was in Ishmael’s line. Islam is the antithesis of Christianity. So to say there are peaceful Muslims is oxymoronic and flies in the face of Bible truth and reality.
Why, then, are there those in this country that are so insistent upon these wild, violent and dangerous people being freely admitted to this land? And why is there such strident opposition of so many to President Trump’s efforts to control and limit that flow of humanity? On the face of it, it makes no sense.
I started this little discussion with a reference to Chapter 16, verse 12 of the first book of the Bible (Genesis). Perhaps Chapter 16, verse 12 of the last book of the Bible (Revelation) will give some light on this conundrum: “And the sixth angel poured out his vial upon the great river Euphrates; and the water thereof was dried up, that the way of the kings of the east might be prepared.”
For now, we watch and look forward to the Lord’s will being done on this earth, as it is in heaven. We hope this Bible perspective will help you on this very real and current situation.
