Get Motivated

I recently had an opportunity to attend a seminar called, "Get Motivated." My new boss really wanted me to go with her and had tickets. It was held at the Rose Garden and among the speakers were: Colin Powel, Laura Bush, Steve Forbes, Terry Bradshaw and Bill Cosby. There was a time I might not have known these people (except Bill Cosby) but now I do. I mean, here's some of the global elite themselves and I have an opportunity to go. So I told her I would go with her.

But I was a little concerned. I mean, this is the global elite right? Maybe they would try something. Maybe they would try some sort of mass hypnosis - or God forbid ELF waves or some other form of mind control. I mean, who knows, the Black Awakening could start from that point. At the same time, I felt it was the Lord's will for me to go - so I prayed that the Lord would protect me from any evil shenanagins and that the Lord would show me if they tried anything.

I really enjoyed the speakers. Rudy Guliani was there and gave a nice presentation. I loved Colin Powel and Terry Bradshaw's talks. They were very funny. I was looking forward to Bill Cosby but he was very rude and not funny. He was talking about how there were demons in his head telling him he wasn't funny, but that the demons left. I'm not so sure. He ended his routine with a Muslim quote praising Allah. Sad. There was around three speakers on the schedule and then someone who wasnt on the schedule came and talked. The unscheduled speakers were the real reason for the convention. The snake oil salesman with their get rick quick schemes.

They didn't have to do anything as outlandish as mass hypnosis or mess with our brain waves. They only had to appeal to the audience's greed and the people swarmed to the tables to pay for the get rich quick schemes being hawked. But what was the MOST surprising thing of all was that all the speakers kept talking about God. They talked about God and that you should pray and read your bible. One speaker even mentioned that Jesus Christ was the only way to get saved. Everyone clapped but I was praying because something was not quite right.

They talked about patriotism and that if you took this class, you could make five million dollars in five years and that if you had that money, you could help the downtrodden and little old ladies and the mentally ill and that it was God's will. Then the Lord showed me the extreme subtilty behind the presentation. The God they kept talking about was the God of Money!!!! Not the God and Father of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ! I guess it is the God of Money's will that people make lots and lots of it.

There were some young men sitting next to me that signed up for every class that was offered (initial cost for the classes was $150 but then they have ongoing internet costs around $117 a month - but that part was barely mentioned.) I heard that there was 20,000 who attended this seminar. There was a good portion of the people who signed up for those classes so I'm sure they made the money from the seminar they needed to make, and there will be ongoing costs to those people who signed up.

I really think that most of the people who clapped every time God was mentioned did not realize it was not the true God they were talking about. The prospertity gospel in a secular setting.

Today, I am sick at heart about this crazy world we are in. The U.S. has just bombed Libya. I guess the rebels just weren't getting it done fast enough. There is devastation in the country of Japan and possibly more on the way and I am watching as men I have followed as teachers of the Word go, one by one, the way of the false prophet.

Pray for the lost in this world. Pray for the lost people you know personally that they can be saved in this evil generation. Pray for the brothers and sisters you know that are moving over to the dark side, deceiving and being deceived. Repent of any sins that may be separating you from the Lord and if you are not saved, Seek the Lord with all your heart, soul, mind and strength, that you may be counted worthy to escape the things coming.

I am going to the mountains with my family next week and not sure what my internet connection will be. I will try to post when I can.

I'm with you, Linda. I am in NC this a.m. and went to church with my best friend of 30 years; the service last two hours. About 1 1/2 hours into the service she asked for my keys and went out to the car. On the way home she said she kept thinking that she could be out on the deck -- and it was an excellent message on salvation!!!

It is getting to be so easy to see people who have no true interest in serving Jehovah, the true God of the Bible. I am sick with you, and I am praying that God will help me not to judge them because but His grace, that is me!

I believe that more and more, people will not want to hear the truth of the gospel and even brothers and sisters are falling away from the truth. I totally understand when you say, but for the grace of God go I, me too. We need to be praying and interceeding for the lost in our lives and those people that are Christians that we know that are falling away. Eternity is a very long time.

Bless you Kim, thanks for commenting.
