A 12-year old Texas girl needs our prayers and support! 

http://www.nbcnews.com/health/rooting-her-strangers-donate-50k-texas-girls-life-saving-obesity-2D11819010

UPDATE: I’m now VERY HAPPY to report that Alexis’s Shapiro’s family’s insurance company, Tricare Humana will now cover the costs of her weight-loss surgery and that all the rest of the money donations will go towards Alexis’s additional long-term medical care and to help other children in similar situations.

Donation site: http://www.gofundme.com/3onp2g

You can send cards or letters to Alexis at: PO box 147 Cibolo, TX 78108. 

By the way, I now have ANOTHER official update on Alexis Shapiro. Even though I’ve written a most recent post about the “damning effects on one’s soul” that the DARK SIDE of Hollywood can have on unsuspecting people, Alexis’s family going on a TV segment of The Doctors is part of a GOOD thing that can come out of Hollywood. Here you can watch the preview of the show segment that Alexis and her family appeared on, on Monday, February 17, 2014:

Go to the link to the right entitled “12-year old girl’s medical crises; diet pill dangers, ADHD Controvery”. Note: They don’t yet have it up in the archives yet but they probably will within the next few days.

FURTHER UPDATE 2014:  I’m very happy and proud to report that Alexis is doing MUCH better these days after the surgery. She is losing weight and is now beginning to do things she used to be able to do before her medical condition first came about, three years ago. She has also now returned to public school once again and seems to be doing GREAT so far! I can only hope that she will continue to make some good progress in life!

Her facebook page (set up for her by her mom) can be found here:

And her Go Fund Me page (also set up for her by her mom Jenny) I believe has now been taken down since the goal was already reached and HIGHLY EXCEEDED!

 

 

 

 

 

 

Satan’s Bride: The Roman Catholic Church, Part 1

If you are Catholic and you are reading this right now, I beg you from the bottom of my heart and the DEPTHS of my SOUL to please GET OUT OF THE CATHOLIC CHURCH, WHILE YOU STILL CAN! Practically every SINGLE Catholic doctrine goes AGAINST the bible and is leading many people’s souls into hell. If you don’t want your soul to be sent to hell/eternal judgement someday, then keep reading!

John 3:16 states: “For God so loved the World that he gave his only begotten Son that whoever believeth in Him should not perish but have everlasting life”. That means that God the Heavenly Father wants to save as MANY souls as possible! Jesus Christ LOVES you and he wants to have a spiritual relationship with you! However, he can’t do that if you won’t let him and/or if you die in the sin of having rejected his heavenly truth(s) in the bible! 

Note to all Catholics: if you repent and leave the Catholic Church NOW, Jesus Christ can STILL redeem you. Being granted the free gift of Salvation by Jesus Christ is by grace through faith + obedience NOT by works! And if you’re Catholic and are offended right now by what I’m saying, I pray that the BIBLICAL Jesus Christ will spiritually open up your eyes before it’s too late! 

My people, go ye out of the midst of her, and deliver ye every man his soul from the fierce anger of the LORD” [Jeremiah 51:45]

And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues” [Revelation 18:4]

The Roman Catholic Church has taken quite a few hits lately within the last few years and child abuse and molestation has been RAMPANT among priests, and for the most part, has been swept under the rug and gone UNREPORTED. Instead, child molesting priests will oftentimes be switched from parish to parish with just a mere slap on the wrist. Just about any other Christian church would be up in arms if they had a child molesting priest among the ranks (or is it just me?)

But charges of child molestation aside, what else is it about the Roman Catholic Church that is spiritually lacking?

Answer: The TRUE 100% written testimony of the Word of God, written in the [original, NOT the New] King James Bible!

Practically almost EVERYTHING the Catholic Church believes and practices goes AGAINST the bible! [And though there’s many more things not listed, for the sake of space and length, I’ve narrowed it down to 20 things the Catholic church practices/believes that goes AGAINST the bible!]

Lets examine the evidence.

Popular Teachings of the Catholic Church [DEBUNKED by KJV scriptures]:

1. During communion, the wine and wafer become the “literal” flesh and blood of Christ through a process known as “transubstantiation”.

communion wafercommunion winePRIEST HOLDING COMMUNION

“And he [Jesus Christ] took bread, and gave thanks and brake it, and gave unto them [the 12 disciples], saying “This is is my body which is given for you: do this in remembrance of me. Likewise, also the cup after supper saying “This cup is the New Testament in my blood, which is shed for you” [Luke 22: 19-20]

These were meant to be “symbolic” of his Jesus’s sacrifice for our sins during his crucifixion. And we are to have communion in remembrance of his sacrifice for us during the crucifixion. However, when the Catholic priests perform “Mass”, they are actually performing an ABOMINATION since what they are doing is literally cannibalizing Christ and “crucifying him” all over again when there was only ONE crucifixion of Jesus Christ!

2.  Mary was/is a perpetual virgin/Jesus Christ had no siblings, she had no sin and is just as important, if not MORE so than Jesus.

 “And Mary said, My soul doth magnify the Lord, And my spirit hath rejoiced in God my Saviour” [Luke 1: 46-47]

The children gather wood, and the fathers kindle the fire, and the women knead their dough, to make cakes to the queen of heaven, and to pour out drink offerings unto other gods, that they may provoke me to anger” [Jeremiah 7:18]

“Then Joseph being raised from sleep did as the angel of the Lord had bidden him, and took unto him his wife” [Matthew 1:24]

“And knew her not till she brought forth her firstborn son: and he called his name Jesus” [Matthew 1: 25]

“While he yet talked to the people, behold, his mother and his brethren [brothers] stood without, desiring to speak with him” [Matthew 12:46]

“Is not this the carpenter’s son? Is not his mother called Mary? And his brothers, James, and Joses, and Simon and Judas?” [Matthew 13: 55]

“His brethren [brothers] therefore said unto him, Depart hence, and go into Judaea, that thy disciples also may see the works that thou doest” [John 7: 3]

“But other of the apostles saw I none, save James the Lord’s brother” [Galatians 1:19]

“Have we not power to lead about a sister, a wife, as well as other apostles, and as the brethren [brothers] of the Lord, and Cephas?” [1 Corinthinians 9: 4-5]

3. The Catholic Church added things to the bible, (namely, The Catechism) which are NOT “official bible doctrine”

catheism-pic 

“For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book, If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book: And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book” [Revelation 22: 18-19]

 

4. One is to call the priest(s) “Father”

“And call no man your father upon the earth: for one is your Father, which is in heaven” [Matthew 23: 19]

5. One is to make confession to priests & say “Hail Marys” to receive forgiveness of sins

Woman Giving Confessionconfessionalbooth

“For there is one God and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus” [1 Timothy 2:5]

6. One is to pray the Rosary

The Hail Mary prayer: 

“Hail Mary, full of grace, the Lord is with thee. Blessed art thou among women, and blessed is the fruit of thy womb, Jesus.Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners, now, and at the hour of our death. Amen”

[The very first two words of the prayer, “Hail Mary”, illustrate how one is actually PRAYING to Mary. And we know from the King James Bible that praying to anything OTHER than Jesus Christ is blasphemy!]

Acts 4:12 states: “Neither is there salvation in any other [other than the Lord Jesus Christ]: for there is none other name under heaven given among men [save for Lord Jesus Christ Almighty], whereby we must be saved” while Galatians 1:9 proclaims: “But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed” while 2 Corinthians 11:4 explicitly warns: “For if he that cometh preacheth another Jesus, whom we have not preached, or if ye receive another spirit, which ye have not received, or another gospel, which ye have not accepted, ye might well bear with him“.

In other words, 2 Corinthians 11:4 is talking about just how EASY it is for one to become deceived if they’re not 100% grounded in the TRUE gospel of Jesus Christ, which is the KJV, front to back!

And it came to pass, as he [Jesus Christ] spake these things, a certain woman of the company lifted up her voice, and said unto him, Blessed is the womb that bare thee, and the paps which thou hast sucked. But he [Jesus Christ] said, Yea rather, blessed are they that hear the word of God, and keep it” [Luke 11: 27-28]

Matthew 6:7 “But when ye pray, use not vain repetitions, as the heathen: for they think that they shall be heard for their much speaking

7. One is to worship dead saints

One of the many prayers to “dead saints” is the following:

Generous St. Dymphna,like all Christ’s martyrs you gained this crowning grace because you prepared for it by a life of self denial.  By faithfulness in smaller things you were ready for your final trial. Please teach us by your example and help to use the good things of life so that we may not miss our chance for life eternal. Help us, too, to watch and pray for ourselves and others. Amen”.

[The sad reality is that “saints” in the Catholic church are actually “demons/demon spirits”, JESUS CHRIST is the one who lived an “ultimate” life of self-denial, JESUS CHRIST is the one who had an ultimate “final trial”, JESUS CHRIST and JESUS CHRIST, ALONE is the only one the bible tells us to pray to, and JESUS CHRIST is the only one who has the power to give eternal life!]

“And I John saw these things, and heard them. And when I had heard and seen, I fell down to worship before the feet of the angel which shewed me these things. Then saith he unto me, See thou do it not: for I am thy fellow-servant, and of thy brethren the prophets, and of them which keep the sayings of this book: worship God” [Revelation 22:8-9]

“After this manner therefore pray ye: Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be they name. Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our debts, as forgive our debtors. And lead us not into temptations, but deliver us from evil: For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever. Amen” [Matthew 6: 9-13]

“Jesus said unto him, Let the dead bury their dead: but go thou and preach the kingdom of God” [Luke 9:60]

8. One is to worship Mary, Idols/”Saints”/STATUES and the Pope

bowing down to idols, 1bowing down to mary 3bowing down to popebowing down to mary 2

“And God spake all these words, saying, I am the Lord thy God, which have brought thee out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage. Thou shalt have no other gods before me” [Exodus 20: 1-3]

Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth. Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them: For I the Lord thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me” [Exodus 20: 4-5]

And the rest of the men which were not killed by these plagues yet repented not of the works of their hands, that they should not worship devils, and IDOLS of gold, and silver, and brass, and stone, and of wood: which neither can see, nor hear, nor walk” [Revelation 9:20]

9. The Pope is God’s mouthpiece on Earth (infallible)

“For ALL have sinned and come short of the glory of God” [Romans 3:23]

10. Salvation is obtained through the 7 holy sacraments and “good works”

“For by grace are ye saved through faith: and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast” [Ephesians 2: 8-9]

11. Infant baptism, abstaining from meats on Lent and/or Good Friday, and forbidding priests to marry

“Forbidding to marry, and commanding to abstain from meats, which God hath created to be received with thanksgiving of them which believe and know the truth” [1 Timothy 4:3]

12. When one dies, one immediately goes to Purgatory

“And he said unto Jesus, Lord, remember me when thou comest into thy kingdom. and Jesus said unto him, ‘Veryily I say unto thee, Today shalt thou be with me in paradise” [Luke 23: 42-43]

And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God; and the books were opened: and another book was opened, which is the Book of Life: and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works. And the sea gave up the dead which were in it; and death and hell delivered up the dead which were in them: and they were judged every man according to their works. And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death. And whosoever was not found written in the Book of Life was cast into the lake of fire” [Revelation 20: 12-15]

“He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believeth not shall be damned” [Mark 16:16]

“In the sweat of thy face shalt thou eat bread, till thou return unto the ground; for out of it wast thou taken: for dust thou art, and unto dust shalt thou return” [Genesis3:19]

13. The true sabbath day is SUNDAY, not Saturday

“And he shall speak great words against the most High, and shall wear out the saints of the most High, and think to change times and laws: and they shall be given into his hand until a time and times and the dividing of time” [Daniel 7:25]

“And on the seventh day God ended his work which he had made; and he rested on the seventh day from all his work which he had made. And God blessed the seventh day, and sanctified it: because that in it he had rested from all his work which God created and made” [Genesis 2: 2-3]

14. Baptism is by “sprinkling” and not full-water immersion

BAPTISM BY SPRINKLING   VS.  BAPTISM BY IMMERSION

“And Jesus, when he was baptized, went up straightway out of the water [the River Jordan, which John the Baptist baptized people in]: and, lo, the heavens were opened unto him, and he saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove, and lighting upon him” [Matthew 3:16]

15. Peter is the “rock” by which the Christian church was built

PETER VS. JESUS IN WATER [Jesus saved PETER, not the other way around!!!!!!]

“For other foundation can no man lay than that is laid, which is Jesus Christ” [1 Corinthians 3:11]

But he turned, and said unto Peter, Get thee behind me, Satan: thou art an offence unto me: for thou savourest not the things that be of God, but those that be of men” [Matthew 16:23]

16. Priests must dress in clerical dress

“But all their works they do for to be seen of men: they make broad their phylacteries, and enlarge the borders of their garments” [Matthew 23:5]

Therefore I say unto you, Take no thought for your life, what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink; nor yet for your body, what ye shall put on. Is not the life more than meat, and the body than raiment?” [Matthew 6:25]

17. Peter was hung upside down when he died….thus, the sign of the “catholic cross” (upside down cross) is “not satanic” in nature

“Only Luke is with me. Take Mark, and bring him with thee: for he is profitable to me for the ministry” [2 Timothy 4:11]

 “The church that is at Babylon, elected together with you, saluteth you; and so doth Marcus my son 1 Peter 5:13 [this is the ONE verse that Catholics claim the apostle Peter wrote while he was in Rome. However, there is no clear, distinct biblical evidence (as far as I can see) that Peter was in Rome OR that he was crucified upside down! In fact, James is the ONLY apostle I know of who’s death is clearly recorded in the bible in Acts 12:2! All other apostles deaths seem to be based on “church tradition”]

As for the “Catholic claim” that the upside down cross “isn’t Satanic”, well, judge for yourself……..

18. One must kiss the pope’s ring and there are “levels” of hierarchy within the church

PYRAMID ON MS JACKET [Notice that the back of Madonna’s shirt (who was raised Catholic) has the Masonic hierarchy!!]

19. A person must perform 3 miracles, be “beautified” and “canonized” before becoming a “saint”.

In the Bible, everyone who has received Jesus Christ by faith is a saint.

Daniel 7:25 states: “And he shall speak great words against the most High, and shall wear out the saints of the most High, and think to change times and laws: and they shall be given into his hand until a time and times and the dividing of time.”

And all Christian saints that overcometh, Jesus Christ will grant the right for that saint/those saints to become co-rulers with him in the Millennial Kingdom.

“Behold, I [Jesus Christ] 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” [Revelation 3:20-21]

 1 Cortinthians 15:52 says: “In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed.”

 20. The reading of (& consequent understanding/interpretation of) the bible is best left to a priest(s).

“All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness” [2 Timothy 3:16]

Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation” [2 Peter 1:20]

This type of situation is one of the main issues that Jesus dealt with, concerning the “highly religious” and “social elite” Pharisees. Jesus Christ ministered to the poor and uneducated with commonly understood parables. In other words, they didn’t NEED someone to interpret the Scriptures for them. [Jesus Christ himself was the EPITOME of the scriptures, so who better to explain them to the common lay people than Jesus Christ himself?] And as a matter of fact, it was the Pharisees themselves who didn’t understand, as they were all caught up in their “religious acts”.

A Christian has the Holy Spirit [the spirit of truth/spiritual discernment] to lead him, he does not NEED a priest to interpret anything. As a matter of fact, the idea that only a priest is able to interpret the Scriptures, is one of the main reasons for the terrible abuses and exploitations by the priesthood over the years. It’s not so much about saving souls as it’s about $$$$$, Power and CONTROL. The “holy priesthood” knew they would pretty much be out of a job if the people were ever able to read the bible for themselves, and trust me, they weren’t ABOUT to give up all their $$$$, power and control.

The fact is, when a person thinks that a priest has special powers of biblical interpretation, they are putting themselves at the mercy of a sinful human being who is inundated with all kinds of jealousies, false motives [think $$$$$, power and control], arrogance, lust, greed, etc.

And most recently, it is ALSO come to my attention that there’s a very high likelihood that the Roman Catholic Church just might be “The Whore of Babylon” talked about in Revelation!

Revelation chapter 17 describes it in full detail!

But please, I beg you, NOW! If you or anyone you know’s currently in the Catholic Church right now, RUN from it! FLEE! And don’t EVER, **EVER** look back!

And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire” [Revelation 20:15]



 

 

 


 

The Path To Darkness: WIDE IS THE GATE

There is SO much wrong going on in the world today that it’s just mind-boggling……BEYOND mind-boggling, actually……

But what REALLY gets me the most is modern-day Christianity…….NOT ONLY are there SEVERAL apostate churches popping up all over the U.S. and around the world, but even HUNDREDS of the ones who call themselves “non-apostate churches” are actually in and of themselves apostate (ironic, isn’t it?)

“Really? Which ones?”, you may ask. Well, let me explain, here.

LONG BEFORE the MODERN day apostasy (i.e. Ecumenicalism — modern-day Churches aligning themselves with the Roman Catholic Church in Rome — and/or the Emergent Movement — bringing “New Age” themes into the Christian church, such as meditation, labyrinths, etc.), there was ALREADY an apostasy going on within the “Christian church”, as it were. And it started around the time of Constantine. Many people (specifically, Catholics and many Christian people today) want to PRAISE Constantine, thinking he did so much to ADVANCE CHRISTIANITY within the Roman Empire and perhaps the world, even.

But they are sadly overlooking ONE thing: In wanting to “appease” the Pagans within the Roman Empire who worshiped the Sun on SUN-DAY, he CHANGED the Sabbath day from the BIBLICALLY-MANDATED SATURDAY (7th day of the week) to SUN-DAY (the first day of the week!)

“Yeah, so what! What’s the big deal?”, you may be asking or saying to yourself. Well, I’ll TELL  YOU what the “big deal” is! You can NOT change the holy, divine law of God and still call yourself “Christian”, that’s what!

Anyways, the Catholic Church followed suit in further promoting SUN-DAY as the Sabbath, instead of the BIBLICALLY-MANDATED SATURDAY (7th day of the week). Also please remember that around the time of Constantine in the Roman Empire, anti-Jewish sentiments were high among Gentile Christians, who accused the Jews of crucifying Jesus. Therefore, those ancient Christians didn’t want anything to DO with Jews or what they considered to be “Jewish law”. That’s why they HAPPILY submitted to the SUN-DAY Sabbath, instead of the biblically-mandated Saturday (7th day) one!

However, when Constantine changed the Sabbath from Saturday TO Sunday, he sadly turned Christianity into a LIE [and only managed to further advance an APOSTATE FORM of Christianity, nothing  more]. That’s almost like the Jews of Moses’s time worshiping the golden calf while still believing in their hearts that they were somehow doing a “true service” to God! You can NOT put a “Christian stamp” on something that’s PAGAN in nature or origin (such as worship of the Sun day) and then expect God to approve of it, for God CAN NOT and WILL NOT approve of such blasphemies!

Okay, now fast forward to the modern times. The Catholic Church has observed a SUN-DAY Sabbath for YEARS and pretty much ALL OTHER CHRISTIAN CHURCHES (save for a very small few) have followed suit!

Have you ever wondered about WHY Jesus was the JEWISH MESSIAH, yet, most modern-day churches/Christians don’t give a DARN about the Old Testament or even do so much as care to read it? Or have you ever wondered WHY the modern-day church doesn’t celebrate the 7 annual feasts of the Lord and writes them off as “Jewish holidays, ONLY”? Or have you ever wondered why the church no longer celebrates the “7th Day-biblically-mandated Sabbath” but instead celebrates the Sabbath on the FIRST day of the week (Sun-day)?

Ironically enough, many modern-day churches/Christians completely and totally REJECT Jesus’s “Jewishness”.

And sadly, that’s the one aspect of Jesus Christ that simply can NOT be denied if one is to accept the FULL 100% TRUTH of God!

Modern-day Christians can NOT deny the “Jewishness” of Jesus since it’s written ALL OVER THE SCRIPTURES, OLD **AND** NEW TESTAMENTS, not to mention that over 360+ Messianic Prophecies about the coming Jewish Messiah in the Old Testament were FULFILLED by Jesus Christ in the New Testament!

http://www.bibleprobe.com/365messianicprophecies.htm

Sadly, many modern-day Christians today have this unbridled spiritual/emotional animosity for the Jews. But ironically, that is exactly what Satan wants because remember that Satan’s goal is to take people AWAY from the Word of God and to divide and conquer among the Lord’s people (Gentile and Jew, alike!) And the people that decide to follow the Jewish roots of Christianity, believing it to be the Lord’s 100% truth, are not only few and far between but are facing an UPHILL BATTLE, as far as acceptance goes. But ya know what? Jesus had THIS to say in John 15:18-27 :

If the world hate you, ye know that it hated me before it hated you. If ye were of the world, the world would love his own: but because ye are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hateth you. Remember the word that I said unto you, The servant is not greater than his lord. If they have persecuted me, they will also persecute you; if they have kept my saying, they will keep yours also. But all these things will they do unto you for my name’s sake, because they know not him that sent me;

If I had not come and spoken unto them, they had not had sin: but now they have no cloak for their sin. He that hateth me hateth my Father also. If I had not done among them the works which none other man did, they had not had sin: but now have they both seen and hated both me and my Father. But this cometh to pass, that the word might be fulfilled that is written in their law, They hated me without a cause. But when the Comforter is come, whom I will send unto you from the Father, even the Spirit of truth, which proceedeth from the Father, he shall testify of me: And ye also shall bear witness, because ye have been with me from the beginning”

But anyways, the point I was wanting to make is that modern-day Christianity has STRAYED from its Jewish roots and if there’s to be any REAL biblical truth behind it, it needs to GO BACK to its Jewish roots, in form, in prayers, in reading and in practice!

“But HOW?”, you may ask. Answer: By reading and following the Old AND New Testaments!

“But wait a minute!”, you may think. “Weren’t the Old Testament laws done away by Jesus in the New Testament?”

Answer: No, NOT AT ALL! In fact, they were EXPANDED ON, and even ADDED ONTO in the New Testament!

Don’t believe me? Check out Jesus’s Sermon on the Mount (Matthew chapter 5-7). Not only did he reference the 10 commandments from Moses in the Old Testament but he EXPANDED on them.

And concerning the Old Testament law(s), he had THIS to say:

Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfil. For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled” [Matthew 5:17-18]

The new heaven and new Earth don’t happen until Revelation 21:1 [book of Revelation, chapter 21, verse 1] in the bible. And from my understanding, at the start of Revelation chapter 22, heaven and earth have already passed and a new heaven and new Earth has been created. The law was done away with at the beginning of chapter 21 of Revelation DURING the creation of the new heaven and new Earth and by the start of Revelation chapter 22, there is no longer any “law” because “law” is simply not needed anymore, for there is NO MORE CHAOS, DISORDER AND DESTRUCTION, at this very point in time, for there is only PEACE, LOVE, SERVITUDE TO GOD/JESUS CHRIST AND PERFECT HARMONY. In other words, Paradise Eternal.

And ya want to know WHY the Lord’s 7 Annual Feasts aren’t JUST “Jewish holidays” for the Jews to observe, only? Jesus AND his apostles AND their followers celebrated all 7 of the Lord’s Annual Feasts, including 2 additional “minor” Jewish feasts and ESPECIALLY the Saturday (Jewish) Sabbath. And the book of Revelation in the New Testament references the people of the Lord partaking in THE FEAST OF TABERNACLES (one of the Lord’s required/ordained 7 annual feasts talked about in the OLD TESTAMENT!) So what does THAT tell you, folks? Yup. You guessed it. The Lord’s 7 annual feasts are STILL required for us to celebrate today! And not only that, but celebrating the feasts of the Lord that Jesus fulfilled can actually help bring one CLOSER to Jesus Christ, not farther away from him!

You may’ve gone to a Sunday-worshiping church your whole life and been led to believe by your pastor that the “Jewish days” were no longer required of us, as Christians and/or that it was “good” and “okay” to celebrate Christmas and Easter (Pagan originated holidays) by putting a “Christian stamp” on it or might’ve even been led to believe by “popular teachings” that Christians somehow replace Jews as God’s Chosen People. But my friends……you’ve been deceived. Not only by your church and your pastor but by the world. Remember that Satan is  VERY ANGRY and knows his time on Earth is short and he’s out to deceive as MANY PEOPLE AS HE CAN, while he still gots time. He gots the Catholics, Mormons, Jehovah’s Witness, Christian “cults” and all those who hate and deny Jesus, in his pocket. He also gots the Satanists/Wiccans/Pagans/New Agers, Hindus, Muslims, Buddhists, Atheists, Shintoists, Kabbalists, Scientologists, Agnostics, Sunday-sabbath-worshiping Christians, etc. in his pocket.

But what Satan DOESN’T have in his pocket are true, bible-believing Christians who adhere to/follow the bible, front to back, Old Testament to New Testament, in life, in prayer, in reading and in practice. And it’s THOSE souls who shall inherit Eternal Paradise with Jesus Christ someday and of whom Satan hates the absolute most!

Plus let us ALSO remember what Jesus said in Matthew 7:13-14

Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat: Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it

I pray that all that read this will open up their eyes to the GREAT DECEPTION that happened in the Christian church under Constantine long ago and that they will not only have an interest in the Jewish roots of Christianity but that they will search their minds, hearts, bodies and spirits to discover the 100% truth of God, not just the “partial truth” spoken about in most modern-day Christian churches today! I also want to say a prayer for Israel and for all those who deny or mock Jesus Christ. May they open up their minds, hearts and spirits to the Lord’s full 100% spiritual truth before it’s too late. Amen.

The “Emergent Church”: Christianity + New Age

There is something SERIOUSLY wrong with the Christian Church today!

Walk into just about ANY Christian Church today and you will see something called “The Emergent Church”; churches that care far more about entertainment, status, money/appearances, New Age philosophies, Roman Catholic mysticism and socializing more than they do about God!

In short, an Emergent Church is one that embraces New Age philosophies and/or watered-down gospel(s) into its teachings. Patrons participate in yoga, walk through labyrinths, etc.

Prayer worship songs have gone from simple to more elaborate. One can oftentimes feel like they’re at a pop/country concert or a “Buddhist sanctuary”, rather than a church worship service.

And I understand if some of today’s young people want to “shake it up a bit” and make the Lord’s music seem more relate-able to today’s younger generation. But when I hear modern-day worship music, (either on the radio or in church), it sounds exactly like SECULAR music to me and so to ME, there’s no clear distinction between secular and non-secular and in so doing, the Lord’s message becomes muffled.

And then there are those  poor souls out there who want to “feel God” at that very moment but what’s that poor person gonna do when their life suddenly gets rough and they don’t “feel God” anymore? Are they then gonna abandon the faith?

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VU0ezArq_Vk [DOCUMENTARY ON MODERN-DAY CHURCH PRACTICES]

And I know alot of my posts lately have all been about “exposing this” or “exposing that” but the thing is, I will NOT sugar coat the Lord’s message to fit people’s needs (for that, to ME, would seem like “political correctness” to do so). Many Christians today (especially those of us of the younger generation) want to hear about how great we are, how special we are. We don’t LIKE to hear about things such as sin, hellfire and separation from God. Unfortunately, those things are NECESSARY to disclose and talk about, so that people aren’t lead astray into the Emergent Church movement!

And it’s not JUST “Emergent Churches” having these philosophies! It has ALREADY “seeped into” the mainstream churches!!!!!

The living proof of this was when I had most recently gone into a ELCA church awhile back and the bottom of their worship literature said “glory be to the Roman Catholic Church”. I was horrified! Nearly EVERY single thing Catholics believe/practice goes AGAINST the bible! Therefore, any church that tries to align itself with the Roman Catholic Church is sadly led TOTALLY ASTRAY! And that makes me very sad…….all those poor souls in the Lutheran and Catholic churches today that don’t even REALIZE how totally “lost” they ARE! It makes my soul grieve! ;(

But in a way, I can kind of see how Catholics become easily astray and don’t even know it. They are taught NOT to read the bible and to have the priest(s) “interpret” it FOR them…..and the Lutherans sprung forth out of the Catholics……however, as far as I know, Lutherans ARE taught to read the bible so I’m confused as to WHY Lutherans are wanting to re-align themselves with the Catholic Church? Am I missing something, here? Well, I guess there IS a thing called Ecumenicalism (the “movement” of the modern-day churches re-aligning themselves with the Roman Catholic Church — for whatever reason).

Many bible scholars believe that this atmosphere of “tolerance” and “political correctness” and “New Ageism” and “Ecumenicalism” is what will SET the system of a false one-world religion into motion. [And from the looks of things, it would possibly seem that a one world economy and one world government might not be too far behind, either].

Sadly, the modern-day Christian church has BEEN an “Emerging” church since the time of Constantine! It has just now become more APPARENT, is all. Also: many, MANY people today have this sort’ve “live and let live” attitude. But Jesus said in the bible that we are to EXPOSE DARKNESS! Therefore, LETTING a person sin in peace without warning them of the coming wrath/judgement of God is to akin to being a passive friend of the darkness! Did Jesus idly sit by and let sinners be sinners in the bible? Or did he REBUKE and/or WARN them? Think about it.

Also, many people will try to say that you’re being “judgmental” or “Un-Christian” if you try to warn people about their sin and God’s coming wrath/judgment on mankind…….or they’ll try to say you’re being “over-zealous” about your relationship with Jesus if you want to follow the bible AS CLOSELY AS POSSIBLE by considering not celebrating in Pagan holidays but celebrating in the Lord’s holidays, instead, etc.

And while it’s true that the Lord Jesus knows the hearts and minds of people (and of whom truly worships him from their heart and whom doesn’t), he also said in Matthew 7: 13-14

Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and MANY there be which go in thereat : Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and FEW there be that find it

If you or someone you know is currently going to an Emergent Church, don’t walk out, RUN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I pray that ALL souls that read this will leave any and all Emergent churches that they’ve been associated with up until this point, that the Lord Jesus will open up the eyes of Emergent church leaders and show them what the TRUE gospel of Jesus Christ is and that NO lost souls will find their way INTO an Emergent church of any kind. Amen. 


 

From Christian to Messianic/Jewish roots Christian

What very first began the journey for me was the day I was sitting on the living room couch in the apartment, re-reading a children’s illustrated bible that a relative had gotten for me when I was little. [And this particular bible has *specific* sentimental value to me since it is THE bible that was given to me not long after I had a near-death experience where I met Yeshua/Jesus Christ for the very first time in my life, with no previous knowledge of him]. 

Anyways, as I was sitting there joyfully re-reading my favorite parts out of that particular children’s illustrated bible, a peaceful breeze blew through the apartment and a soft, still voice said/whispered to me”Yeshua”.

I said “what?” It said/whispered to me once more “Yeshua”. And then a sudden understanding dawned upon me. This was the HEBREW/ARAMAIC name for Jesus! I was excited! I was happy! I had just had an encounter with the Holy Spirit of God and I felt truly blessed! 😉

So I was one step closer to the truth at that time. I knew Jesus’s Hebrew/Aramaic name was Yeshua but at point in time, that was about ALL I knew, around the year 2001-2007 or so? My mom was raised Lutheran and my dad was raised Methodist but they had both pretty much abandoned the Christian faith in their adult years, so I had no real spiritual grounding, while growing up. And though I had read the “official” bible (the Holy Bible that’s in churches), IN ADDITION to the bible given to me as a child, there were still alot of things about Jesus Christ/Yeshua that I didn’t quite understand.

And though I wanted and longed to go to a Christian church, I didn’t feel spiritually grounded or knowledgeable enough to be around other Christians “that have been going to church their whole lives”. I went to Lutheran services a time or two but felt out of place, like I didn’t belong there, like something was missing. And the only other place I had to turn to for spiritual advice was my bestfriend, who was Catholic and I knew there was something “odd” about the Catholic faith back then but I didn’t know exactly what, at the time. So I gave up going to church altogether and several years went by, with me sporadically reading/studying my King James Version bible at home.

And then, in the last four years or so, I had, for some reason, become PARTICULARLY interested in researching WHAT it was about the Catholic Church that was wrong, since it was nagging and eating away at me, on the inside. And after doing lots of research, I finally found out what it was about the Catholic Church that was WRONG/FALSE! And it set my soul at ease, just being able to know the truth about it. But I still had many unanswered questions about Jesus’s true role with the Old Testament, since I knew that Jesus was a Jew.

And it was only within the last year or so that I had become HIGHLY INTERESTED in learning about the JEWISH ROOTS OF CHRISTIANITY and it was there, during that time, that the Lord Jesus/Yeshua finally revealed his truth to me. The truth about the TRUE SABBATH (Friday sundown to Saturday sundown: 3 stars visible in the sky) and about HOW and WHY the Old Testament (Torah) still applies! And about WHY I (as well as all other Christians) must STILL participate in the Lord’s 7 Annual Feasts (Passover, Feast of Tabernacles, etc.) And about WHY Christians should NOT celebrate the Pagan holidays of Christmas, Easter, New Years, St. Valentine’s Day, Halloween and Birthdays!

But I WILL say this! After I had changed my “point of availability” at my work so I wouldn’t have to work on Shabbat/The Sabbath, (which remember, begins Friday evening at sundown), I’ve have COUNTLESS ATTEMPTS by people trying to get me to work on the Sabbath (Friday evenings & sometimes asking me to work on Saturday) giving me any NUMBER of excuses as to why they wanted me to work on the Sabbath and it used to happen at my work practically EVERY SINGLE WEEK! It was MADDENING! The Devil and his demonic representatives were TRULY trying to keep me from worshiping on the Lord’s TRUE Sabbath (Friday SUNDOWN to Saturday sundown!) Which only serves as FURTHER EVIDENCE to me that YES! Friday sundown to Saturday sundown IS the Lord’s true Sabbath!

A couple of my Christian friends think that I’m “superstitious”  or “in the wrong” for wanting to follow the ORIGINAL Jewish roots of Christianity but I know in my heart and soul that the Old Testament (Torah) applies just as much TODAY as it did yesterday in the days of Old. But today’s Christians (in general) have SO many arguments about why they “think” the Old Testament no longer applies. But in Matthew 5:17-18, Yeshua/Jesus Christ has THIS to say: Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfill. For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled”. [Everything won’t be fulfilled until the very END of the Book of Revelation — which is chapter 22!]

I will admit I’m STILL in the process of learning more about specific practices that must take place on the Sabbath/Shabbat and the 7 Annual Feasts of the Lord. Like, for a Passover meal, for example, there’s things called a Seder Meal/Plate, Kiddish Cup, etc. And since I wasn’t born and raised in the Jewish faith, or any faith in particular, it’s hard for me to find good resources out there that tell me how to celebrate such holidays. The website http://www.hebrew4christians.com provides some pretty good information on the history of the Jewish holidays and learning Hebrew language, etc.

There’s also a couple of good books that I’m reading right now that shed some light on the subject. But they still don’t give specifics (as far as I know) about WHAT type of modern-day material can be used to construct the dwelling for Feast of Tabernacles (if any). Then again, I’m still only in the very beginning chapters, as of right now. But so far, they are both some VERY good reads! [P.S.: If there’s any other fellow Messianic Jews out there who can give me more information about the challah, kiddish cup, seder meal, etc, please let me know – Thanks!]

BIBLICAL FEASTS FEASTS OF THE LORD

Why So Many Bible Translations and Church Denominations?

Step inside any Christian bookstore today and not ONLY will you likely see VERY LITTLE books about God/Jesus SPECIFICALLY (aside from the bibles, ofcourse) but you will also notice alot of self-help books, books with authors’ pictures taking up the entire book cover, OUTRAGEOUSLY EXPENSIVE PRICES for most items and SEVERAL different bible translations!!!!!

NIVDidCatholicGiveBnkjv2a

NOTE: The newer bible translations claim to be “better” and “more readable” but what I’m about to tell you is gonna rock you to the core!

Revelation 22: 18-19 says: For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book, If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book: And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book”.

And what’s interesting to note about this is that the New King James Version has omitted and changed NUMEROUS words! According to http://www.av1611.org/nkjv.html

The NKJV removes the word “Lord” 66 times!
The NKJV removes the word God 51 times!
The NKJV removes the word “heaven” 50 times!
In just the New Testament alone the NKJV removes 2,289 words from the KJV!
The NKJV makes over 100,000 word changes!

nkjv2aAnd that’s just from the NEW King James Version, that doesn’t even scratch the surface of all the OTHER numerous word changes in the OTHER new bible versions (such as NIV, NSRV, ERV, etc.)

The King James Version came from ONE translation source while all OTHERS bibles came from a completely DIFFERENT translation source. But one thing is clear! The holy, divine Word of God is NOT to be tampered with! And that’s EXACTLY what these supposed “newer” versions DO!

So the next time you go out and buy a bible, please make sure it’s the King James Version!

And as far as all these SEVERAL church denominations go, that ALSO goes against the words of the bible (in and of itself). Because the holy Word of God is not like going to a fast food drive-thru where you can “customize” your experience to “only have the lettuce without the tomato”, or “only have the cheese and tomato with mustard but no lettuce”.

God’s Word isn’t like that! God’s Word is holy, pure and TRUE! People that lived back during the time of King James were VERY, VERY careful about EVERY SINGLE WORD they copied, trying to make sure it was as accurate as possible! Do you really think that modern-day publishers have cares of such regards? All they see are $$$$$ signs, think about it, folks!

And same with many modern church leaders of today as well. They aren’t so much concerned about souls as they are $$$$$ signs. Which brings me to my next point. Why so many church denominations?

When you go back in time during the time of Jesus Christ, you see three major religious groups at the time. The Romans/Pagans, the Orthodox/loyal to Rome Jews who denied Jesus, and the Jews who followed Christ (now known as early Christians). And since then, there have been various others who’ve tried to distort Jesus’s message/divinity.

You had Mohammed who tried to say that Jesus Christ was never crucified (in spite of the fact that SEVERAL non-Christian accounts prove he WAS crucified), you had Catholics saying that Mary was higher than Jesus and/or coequal with him, you had Mormons say that Joseph Smith was necessary for salvation, you had Buddhists say that Buddha was a god, Hindus say that Brahma was God and was in everything and everyone, various people THEMSELVES claiming to be God (such as Marshall Applegate, David Koresh, Jim Jones, Jose Luiz Jesus De Miranda, etc.)

In other words, over time, Jesus’s divine message of salvation for sins became distorted by all the false teachings and false religions out there. And WITH the false religions and false teachings out there came people who decided to pick and choose for their own (to pick and choose WHAT parts of the bible they wanted to believe or disbelieve). And you CAN’T do that, if you truly want to follow Christ!

You can’t just say that you’re going to help feed the poor, but not follow the true, biblical Sabbath, for instance. Or you can’t say that you’ll follow all the 10 commandments but not the Sermon On the Mount teachings, since the Sermon on the Mount teachings EXPAND upon the 10 commandments in great detail!

Or you can’t just say that you’ll follow the Sermon on the Mount teachings but NOT the 10 commandments, since the Sermon on the Mount teachings DERIVED FROM the 10 commandments themselves! Just like you can’t say you believe the whole bible MINUS the book of Revelation, as the book of Revelation is CENTRAL to the conclusion of the ENTIRETY of the bible!

But yet, that’s EXACTLY what church denominations DO…….they pick and choose what they want to believe and what they DON’T want to believe and it’s very, very tragic. Because IN doing so, they turn their eyes from the truth and instead turn to lies! Just look at HOW MANY Christian churches today worship on the FALSE SABBATH (Sunday) instead of the TRUE SABBATH (Saturday) and that participate in PAGAN-ORIGINATED HOLIDAYS (Christmas, Halloween, Easter, etc.) while NOT participating in the Lord’s REQUIRED 7 Annual Celebrations (such as Passover, Pentecost, etc.)

Were most people and church leaders even aware that the Lord’s people will STILL be participating in the Lord’s 7 Annual Celebrations (specifically, Feast of Tabernacles) in the New Millennial Kingdom? Do they even care? Why would the Lord have his people celebrate that in the Millennial Kingdom ONLY but not here during mortal time on Earth, especially when Jesus Christ HIMSELF and the apostles celebrated all 7? Think about it, folks! He wouldn’t! He requires us to celebrate all 7!

[Side note: There are some very good books out there that talk about the Lord’s 7 annual feasts and how to celebrate them. I would strongly recommend the following: “Celebrating Jesus in the Biblical Feasts” by Dr. Richard Booker and “The Feasts of the Lord” by Kevin Howard and Martin Rosenthal].

Remember Jesus’s passage in Matthew 5:17-18 Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfill. For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled”

At that point in time when Jesus spoke those words, the cross/plan of salvation needed yet to be fulfilled……..BUT…….everything will NOT be COMPLETELY fulfilled until the VERY END of the book of Revelation [Revelation 22’s conclusion!] Think about it, folks!

There are some out there that claim that Revelation ALREADY HAPPENED in the 1st century and that the passages were specifically meant for the Romans, ONLY. But ya know what? If that were true, (if Revelation had already happened, that is), then ALL the inhabitants of the Earth that ever lived (from creation until now) would have ALREADY been judged and Jesus Christ would ALREADY be ruling over/on the Earth during the time of his Millennial Kingdom! But SINCE those events haven’t happened yet, we know that the majority of the things written about in the book of Revelation have YET to happen.

How many modern day churches do you know of that teach about the book of Revelation and/or bible prophecy? My guess is probably very few and far between.

And of the churches that DO discuss such things, do they emphasize the SUNDAY (False) Sabbath or the SATURDAY (True) Sabbath?Do they mention sin and the need for salvation? Do they talk about the importance of following all the things that Jesus layed out for us in the bible [10 commandments, Sermon on the Mount commandments, etc.] and of NOT following the things that are NOT written anywhere in the bible? Do they talk about the IMPORTANCE of “living APART from the world”?

Do they encourage you to celebrate Jesus’s birthday AND death, even though the bible never actually commanded us to celebrate Jesus’s birthday, only to commemorate his death during the Lord’s Supper? Do they say that you can only be saved by faith or by works alone (which would be a false teaching)? Do they talk about the importance of GROWING in your spiritual relationship with Jesus Christ by relying on HIM for your life and NOT on your fellow man/mankind?

Do they talk about the IMPORTANCE of suffering WELL for Jesus’s namesake and that suffering for Jesus Christ is actually considered a BLESSING in the kingdom of God? Do they teach you to forgive others who have hurt you and to pray for your enemies? Do the pastors and fellow church members cry tears of joy when they talk about how they came to Jesus Christ and what Jesus means to them?

People are SO confused these days about what “bible” to pick to read (“there’s so many different translations out there, how can I know which one is best?”), what religion to follow (“there’s so many religions out there to choose from, how do I know which one is right?”) and what church to go to (“there’s so many churches to choose from, which one is possibly best?”).

But ya know what? That was Satan’s plan since day one. To DIVIDE AND CONQUER the Lord’s children. And how best to do that? By creating MASS CONFUSION. And how best to do THAT? By creating MANY different bible translations, MANY different religions, and MANY different churches and church denominations.

But don’t fall fool to his game! Pick up a King James Version bible today (the ORIGINAL KJV and NOT the “New” KJV/NKJV) and instead of going to church (a place where, in today’s “secular world”, you will more than likely NOT find the true, biblical God talked about in the bible), read it front to back, on your own, in your own spare time.

And DON’T turn to televangelists or the internet to try to understand difficult bible passages but instead pray to the Lord Jesus Christ that he will reveal the true meaning of those passages to you, instead. And believe in Jesus Christ and trust him and live your very LIFE for him! Remember that Jesus Christ said in John 14:15 “If ye love me, keep my commandments”.

That means don’t just READ about the 10 commandments or the Sermon on the Mount commandments, etc., OBEY THEM! Pray for forgiveness of your sins and REPENT (that means, give up/stop doing) your sins. Then get baptized in the name of Yeshua/Jesus Christ.

And don’t listen to all the false teachers out there that say FALSE things, such as: “there’s no such thing as sin”, “we no longer need to keep the 7th day Sabbath”, “we don’t need to read the Old Testament, anymore”, “the Lord’s 7 Annual Festivals are JEWISH Festivals, ONLY”, “Once Saved, Always Saved”, “we are saved by our works”, “it’s OK to partake in Pagan holidays if we Christianize them”, “you don’t need to be baptized at all”, “baptism is by sprinkling and not full immersion”, “hell and/or the book of Revelation are not real”, etc. etc.

I pray that ALL who read this find a King James Version bible, will find the hope and 100% truth that is in Jesus Christ/God Almighty in the flesh and will NEVER, EVER become victim to a “false church”, “counterfeit bible translation” (other than KJV) or “false teaching”. Amen.
