The REAL Jesus/Yeshua Vs. the COUNTERFEIT Jesus/Yeshua

Today’s Christianity is a FAR CRY from what “Christianity” was at the time of Yeshua/Jesus Christ. Today’s Christianity worships a COUNTERFEIT JESUS! Yes………a COUNTERFEIT JESUS…….and here’s why:

CONTERFEIT JESUS WORSHIP:

1). The BIBLICAL Sabbath has been done away with and has been replaced by MORTAL MAN/the Roman Catholic Church to the FIRST day of the week (Sun-day, venerable worship day of the SUN! To say that the Sabbath was changed is to say that God made a mistake when he CREATED the 7th day Sabbath, consecrated it and MADE IT HOLY. And to say/claim that God “made a mistake” with the Sabbath? Well, I’ll let YOU figure it out, folks!)

2). Holidays such as Christmas and Easter actually MOCK Jesus Christ/Yeshua by equating him with things which AREN’T in the bible, such as chocolate bunnies, Easter eggs, adorned christmas tree IDOLS, Santa Claus, and that reduce him to nothing more than a “helpless babe in a manger”, etc. 

3). BIBLICAL holidays that fully and **TRULY** CELEBRATE & HONOR JESUS (such as Passover, Unleavened Bread, Firstfruits, Trumpets, Pentecost, Atonement, Tabernacles) are NO LONGER CELEBRATED *****AT ALL*******! Plus most “Christians” today haven’t even HEARD of them! (Sad, real sad…….)

4). [Catholicism]: Worships the SUN, not **the Son!** And the “Son” they DO worship is NOT the Jesus from the bible but rather, Helios, the Sun god (in the VISUALIZED IDOL form of Jesus!) And pretty much 99% of ALL “Christian churches” have followed suit, without even knowing or realizing it! Hint: those aren’t “halos” you see on Catholic figures but are rather used to represent SUNS!

5). Has a “superiority complex” when it comes to the Jews and claims God/Yeshua is no longer with the Jews OR falsely claims that the Jews don’t need Jesus since they are saved by the Torah……………totally disregards the fact that Jesus was a Jew and considers it a “non-issue” when in reality, the fact that Jesus was a Jew is of CENTRAL IMPORTANCE!

6). WRITES OFF the Old Testament as if it has NO significance, meaning or value and as if it no longer applies, TODAY! Also claims “the church” is a place to GO TO, not to BE! Hint: church isn’t a place we “go to” for we ARE “the church”, each and every single one of us and we’re supposed to BE “the church” within our SPIRIT! Think about it, folks! Hiding behind 4 walls once a week on the false sabbath while in the meantime not concerning oneself with the homeless, the unsaved, etc. Today’s “church model” is NOT biblical!

7). Created several million different SECTS & DENOMINATIONS (Ever wondered WHY that is? certainly they can’t ALL be right!) 

8). Often asks the question “What can Jesus do for ME?”, instead of asking what one can do for Jesus and his heavenly kingdom, etc. 

CONCLUSION: Today’s “modern institutionalized Christianity” worships a COUNTERFEIT Jesus on a FALSE MAN-MADE *CATHOLIC* SABBATH with a FALSE/PAGANIZED GOSPEL that’s absolutely NOTHING like the gospel that was around during the time of Jesus Christ HIMSELF!

“There IS no such thing as sin since Jesus payed for our sins!”, “sprinkling baptism”, “baptism delay”, “Sunday sabbath”, “Paganized holidays” and “once saved, always saved” are the prominent teachings in Christian churches today and those teachings JUST. AREN’T. BIBLICAL…..PERIOD!!!!!!

==============================

TRUE, BIBLICAL JESUS/YESHUA WORSHIP: (And remember, place words of Jesus over words of Paul)

1). Worships on the TRUE 7th-day Biblical Sabbath (notice that Jesus and his disciples kept the 7th day Sabbath during the times of New Testament).

2). Does NOT celebrate or partake in any PAGAN HOLIDAYS such as Saturnalia/Christmas, Februar/Ester/Easter, Samhain/Halloween, etc.

3). CELEBRATES JESUS/YESHUA FULLY in the biblical feasts of Passover, Unleavened Bread, Firstfruits, Pentecost, Atonement, Trumpets, Tabernacles. There’s also 2 Minor Feasts of Purim & Chanukah).

4). Worships Jesus Christ Almighty/Yeshua who CREATED the Sun, thereby worshiping the creator and not the “created”.

5). EMBRACES the Jewishness of Jesus and the Old Testament and combines it WITH the New Testament since God/Yeshua is the same yesterday, today and forevermore, he’s EVERLASTING!

6). EMBRACES the Old Testament and realizes that the New Testament is just a CONTINUATION of the Old Testament, with Jesus Christ/Yeshua at its head, the chief cornerstone. Jesus/Yeshua actually made “pre-flesh” appearances in the Old Testament: these are known as “Christophanies” (look it up).

7). Is ONE body, ONE church, ONE gospel, and ONE Jesus/Yeshua who NEVER CHANGES; IS EVERLASTING from the End to the Beginning…..Realizes that Revelation is the CENTRAL CONCLUSION of the bible and that the bible (Old and New Testament) is ONE COMPLETE TESTAMENT OF GOD/JESUS ALMIGHY/YESHUA!

CONCLUSION: Messianic Judaism/Jewish-roots Christianity worships the TRUE, BIBLICAL YESHUA/JESUS CHRIST ALMIGHTY, on the TRUE 7th day biblical (“God-sanctified”) Sabbath, with the TRUE gospel of Yeshua/Jesus Christ Almighty with the TRUE “church model”. It embraces BIBLICAL PRACTICES such as full water immersion baptism, baptism IMMEDIATELY upon first believing, BIBLICAL HOLIDAYS, repentance of sins, fasting, prayer, and being saved by grace through faith + obedience.

However, also please remember that Almighty Yeshua/Jesus Christ calls us to do HIS will in our lives, as well…. 

Remember that Jesus said in John 14:15 “If ye love me, keep my commandments” and in Matthew 7:21 “Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven”.

Therefore, which Jesus Christ/Yeshua do you serve? The biblical one — the one displayed in both the Old AND New Testament? Or the NON-BIBLICAL one? Think about that long and hard, folks! Mankind has always had their “traditions”. But do their “traditions” line up with the bible? If not, WHY? You will NEVER see the Easter bunny and Santa Claus in the bible. In fact, the Easter bunny and Santa Claus make a TOTAL and complete MOCKERY out of Jesus Christ/Yeshua of the bible. Did you know that, people? Do you CARE?

In bringing all this to light, I hope you will join me in worshiping the TRUE Jesus Christ Almighty/Yeshua of the bible and put away ALL things Pagan! And that includes the FALSE CHRISTIAN PAGAN holidays such as Christmas, Easter, Halloween, etc., as like I said, those holidays only serve to MOCK Jesus Christ/Yeshua! Don’t believe me? Do the research!!!!!!

And please, please do the research on the TRUE history of Christianity and Pagan Christian holidays before it’s too late. Because soon, battle lines will be drawn (spiritual battle lines). And what side you’re “pegged” on will depend on what side you LIVE ON. And what side you LIVE ON will depend on what side you BELIEVE ON. And what side you believe on will depend on which side you ABIDE ON.

We’re humans, we have free will. We can either CHOOSE to believe in AND follow the bible (the ENTIRE bible, not just HALF of it, be it Old Testament or New Testament) or we can choose that our own Paganized MANMADE TRADITIONS (FALSE Sun-day Sabbath, Christmas, Easter) are far more important to us than God/Jesus’s traditions/decrees (BIBLICAL 7th day Sabbath, Passover, Unleavened Bread, etc.) The choice is up to you. But don’t say I didn’t warn you.

We know from the bible that there is a “spirit of Anti-Christ” roaming over the land. The Devil is like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour. First, Satan established the Catholic Church based on Babylonian sun worship, repackaged. Piece of pie. Then he USED the Catholic Church to PROFANE the true gospel of the everlasting God/Jesus/Almighty Yeshua. No problem. Then he FURTHER used the Catholic Church to introduce a FAKE GOSPEL ***and*** to severely persecute the Jews/Christians who DID follow and adhere to the REAL GOSPEL OF JESUS CHRIST/YESHUA. No problem at’tall.

Then he EVEN FURTHER used the Catholic Church to capitulate his FALSE GOSPEL TO DECEIVE THE MASSES and used the Catholic Church’s power of intimidation to further deceive pretty much ALL if not most Christian “churches” to worship on the FALSE SABBATH with a FALSE GOSPEL and a FALSE/PAGANIZED JESUS. But did Satan stop THERE? NNNNOOOOOOOOO…………He took it much, much further. He created SECTS AND DENOMINATIONS. He gutted the AKJV and KJV to create the PROFANE BIBLE VERSIONS of NIV, NSB, NKJV, etc.

And not only that but this FALSE JESUS GOSPEL MODEL will be used to FURTHER DECEIVE THE MASSES into someday soon accepting the Anti-Christ. Evangelicals often teach “Jesus can come at any minute”. And soon, a “Jesus imposter” will come upon the Earth. He will likely be of Middle-Eastern descent and will probably even look like Jesus or an Old Testament prophet. But he WILL NOT be the Jesus of the bible. And BECAUSE many of these Evangelical Christians believe Jesus can come at any minute (The “Imminent Rapture theory”), they’ll have NO PROBLEMS believing that this IMPOSTER JESUS is the real Jesus!

And Jesus Christ/Yeshua HIMSELF warned us about this in the bible:

Then if any man shall say unto you, Lo, here is Christ, or there; believe it not. For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect. Wherefore if they shall say unto you, Behold, he is in the desert; go not forth: behold, he is in the secret chambers; believe it not. Immediately after the tribulation of those days shall the sun be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, and the stars shall fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens shall be shaken: And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven: and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory. And he shall send his angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they shall gather together his elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other” – Matthew 24: 23~31

And INDEED, many “false Christs” have ALREADY come to *deceive many*. But what will happen when the ULTIMATE FAKE JESUS (THE ANTI-CHRIST) arrives on the scene?

Many people (specifically Christians) arrogantly think that they WON’T be deceived by such the ULTIMATE FALSE JESUS/ANTICHRIST FIGURE. However, if they’re in a Sunday-worshiping “evangelical church” that worships in/partakes of Christmas, Easter, Lent/Good Friday, etc. that reads the NEWER bible versions such as NIV, NKJV, NSV, etc. and that’s DONE AWAY WITH the biblical holidays of Passover, Unleavened Bread, etc., they’ve ALREADY been deceived!

Therefore, they’ll be “easy pickins” for the Devil AND **THE ANTICHRIST** (**THE ULTIMATE FAKE/COUNTERFEIT JESUS**) that comes to arrive on the scene. And the book of Revelation in the New Testament gives some VERY dire warnings about those who take the mark of the beast. This FAKE JESUS will require everyone, man, woman and child to take a mark in their right hand or forehead in order to be able to buy or sell.

And oddly enough, ALL world religions are awaiting a “Messiah figure”. The Muslims are waiting on the 12th Iman or the Madhi. The Buddhists are awaiting the 5th Buddha or whatever. The Jews (as a whole) rejected Jesus Christ/Almighty Yeshua as their Messiah and are “still waiting on their Messiah” (no joke). The Brahmas/Hindus are ALSO waiting on a “Messiah figure”, as are some Indigenous peoples awaiting “The Serpent god” or Quetzalcoatl reincarnation. Just like Christians are awaiting the ANTICHRIST (the FALSE JESUS figure IN PLACE OF CHRIST).

Therefore, I submit to you that THE ANTICHRIST will come as a “Messiah figure” TO THE WORLD! And all those whose names aren’t recorded in the Lamb’s Book of Life (reference: book of Revelation) WILL be deceived by this figure and take his mark! And those who take his mark will later be burned & torchured alive FOR ETERNITY in EVERLASTING FIRE!

I believe that the Anti-christ will be of Greek and/or Middle Eastern descent and look like Jesus Christ himself (though I could be wrong). The REASON why I think this is because Satan’s goal is to deceive many. Jesus Christ is the most talked about figure in history. Therefore, it makes sense to me that THAT’S the type of form or prototype that the Antichrist would choose to appear in. Satan KNOWS that evangelical Christians are waiting for Jesus. Satan KNOWS that Muslims highly regard Jesus AND are waiting on their “Muslim Messiah”. Satan KNOWS that ALL of the world’s religions are awaiting a “Messiah figure”. And since Satan’s goal is to DECEIVE MANY, what better “disguise” than the appearance/form of “Jesus Christ”? Think about it, folks!

But it all boils down to a basic question, really. Do you worship the PAGAN Jesus talked about in today’s modern-day churches or do you worship the HEBREW Jesus talked about in the bible, Old AND New Testaments? Because remember that the ENTIRE bible is a COMPLETE testament of Jesus Christ Almighty/Yeshua, nothing more, nothing less.

 

 

 

 

What Are YOU Grateful For?

Many of us humanoids naturally take things/people/events for granted. And that’s easy to do when we feel like we have everything we need in life. However, when we DON’T have everything we need/feel like we need, that’s usually when we turn into chronic complainers, am I right? We all start walking around with a “woe is me” type attitude, complaining to our friends/family/God about this or complaining to our friends/family/God about that.

But let me tell you something. Our friends don’t want to hear it, our family doesn’t want to hear it and God doesn’t want to hear it. And trust me, it’s not that they don’t care. OFCOURSE they care! But do you know and REALIZE just how emotionally/mentally/physically/psychologically draining it is to have to listen to someone CHRONICALLY bicker/rant/vent/complain about their life/their circumstances/another person/people/etc.? IT’S EXHAUSTING!

Sometimes I honestly feel sorry for the Lord above. It must be a really, really hard thing to have to listen to BILLIONS of believers angrily or sadly bitching to him about this or that EVERY. SINGLE. DAY. In fact, it must be DRAINING! And no matter HOW much he tries to help mankind see the light, mankind is stubborn, sinful, rebellious & ungrateful alot of the time. It must break his heavenly heart! ;(

But sometimes it helps to put things in perspective. Okay, so maybe you didn’t get that job promotion you were hoping for. So what. Jesus has better plans for you. Maybe what you thought was the love of your life left you most recently. Don’t fret. Jesus has other plans for you. Maybe it seems to you that so and so has it alot easier in life than you do. Don’t obsess over it. Envy is sin and you’ll get your own big break in life, sooner or later. Remember Romans 8:28 And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose” and Matthew 6:33But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you”.

The root of complainism, in my opinion, stems from distrust/lack of faith/anxiety/fear. We COMPLAIN to Jesus Christ about things because we don’t TRUST Jesus Christ about things in our life.

And as a matter of fact, when it comes to the very concept of “anxiety/worry/fear”, in and of ITSELF, Jesus Christ had THIS to say in Matthew 6:24-35

“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? Behold the fowls of the air: for they sow not, neither do they reap, nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feedeth them. Are ye not much better than they? Which of you by taking thought can add one cubit unto his stature? And why take ye thought for raiment? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow; they toil not, neither do they spin:And yet I say unto you, That even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these.

Wherefore, if God so clothe the grass of the field, which to day is, and to morrow is cast into the oven, shall he not much more clothe you, O ye of little faith? Therefore take no thought, saying, What shall we eat? or, What shall we drink? or, Wherewithal shall we be clothed? (For after all these things do the Gentiles seek:) for your heavenly Father knoweth that ye have need of all these things. But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you”

And know this as well: no matter HOW bad you think you have it, someone else out there has it off worse than you do. It’s true. For example: Americans (specifically American Judeo-Christians) want to bitch about how “spiritually corrupted” our country has become. But look at Christians living over in Asia and the Middle East. Many of them LOSE THEIR VERY LIVES for their faith, as well as doing so much as being in possession of a bible, a FORBIDDEN BOOK in their country/countries! Others are tortured and/or imprisoned for long periods of time. Therefore, us American Christians should be lucky we still live in a country (atleast for the time being) that allows us to practice our faith OPENLY without threat of death/imprisonment!

Or perhaps some single people out there are bitching and ranting and raving about being single. So what. As some married people would say to all you singles out there, “you don’t know how good you have it!” In other words, it seems like the grass is always greener on the other side! People always want what they can’t have! And WHEN they get that thing/person that was previously unattainable, they tend to LOSE INTEREST in it/that person, am I right?

Human nature dictates that we take for granted that which is easily obtained. Which makes sense. When Jesus Christ Almighty died as an eternal sacrifice for mankind’s sins, Salvation became a FREE GIFT to all whom believed and wished to receive it. Therefore, because it’s a FREE GIFT from God (BY GRACE THROUGH FAITH), it’s VERY EASILY taken for granted by mankind. People “put off/prolong” *being saved* in the name of Jesus Christ for that very reason!

On the other hand, we DO tend to be grateful for things that are NOT easily obtained. Why? Because we actually have to WORK for them since they’re not just magically handed to us. While it’s true that Salvation is granted by Grace through Faith, it’s also true that we must work to MAINTAIN that Salvation.

Jesus Christ says in John 14:15 If ye love me, keep my commandments“. He further expands on this in Matthew 7:21Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven“. Translation? Those who work to MAINTAIN their free gift of Salvation (by adhering to all of Jesus’s commandments in the bible — including but not limited to the 10 commandments) will KEEP it, while those who do NOT work to maintain their free gift of salvation (whom believe in Jesus Christ but of whom do NOT follow his commandments in the bible) will LOSE it.

[Unfortunately, we’re now living in the times of the End and Salvation can’t wait, folks! The eternal clock is ticking! When Jesus Christ returns to the Earth for the 2nd time (and the bible SAYS he will), it’ll be too late and one’s fate will be sealed for eternity! So don’t be left behind, folks! Cry out to Jesus Christ TODAY! Don’t wait until tomorrow since tomorrow is not guaranteed! Note: **The recent world events/fulfillment of bible prophecy proclaim that Jesus’s return to the Earth is sooner now than EVER before! In fact, it might only be a mere number of months/DAYS before he returns!**]

That being said, what are YOU grateful for? What has the Lord Jesus done in your life? Well, for starters, he died an agonizing death for the forgiveness of mankind’s sins. All of mankind are sinners and are deserving of hell/eternal punishment. But Jesus Christ took it upon Himself to become an *atonement* for mankind’s sins. Therefore, Jesus died an excruciating death just to give YOU and ME and ALL of mankind a chance to go Eternal Paradise someday. There’s NO greater love than that, people! He also performed many miracles in the times of the New Testament and even during the times of the OLD TESTAMENT (as something called a “Christophany” – look it up!)

But next to what he’s ALREADY done for mankind and for the nation of Israel PERSONALLY during the times of the Old and New Testament, what has Jesus Christ personally done for YOU? Has he revealed Himself to you during a Near-Death Experience? Did he cure someone in your family from cancer? Did he heal YOU personally from some health problem or ailment? Did the Lord Jesus allow you to travel to an awesome place or places/destinations in the world? Did he send someone totally awesome into your life? Has he repaired a broken relationship? Has the Lord Jesus Christ given you special talents/hobbies in life? What are YOU grateful for, in your life? Think about what you’re grateful for in life, and then PRAISE HIM! Praise him above ALL other people and ALL other things! Do nothing but PRAISE HIM for he is worthy of ALL PRAISE! 😉

You can EVEN be grateful for times of personal suffering in your life! Why? Because think about it. When we have everything we need, we think we “don’t NEED God/Jesus Christ”. But when we DON’T have everything we need and life’s a pain/struggle, OH HOW MUCH WE CRY OUT TO THE LORD JESUS CHRIST, **THEN**, am I right? 😉 And as a result of that, what happened? WE WERE DRAWN CLOSER AND CLOSER TO **HIM**/JESUS CHRIST ALMIGHTY and never felt more happier/more joyous/more at peace within ourselves AND with HIM, am I right? 😉

So PRAISE HIM! EVEN in times of hardship/struggle! Just like Job said to his wife in Job 2:10 “But he said unto her, Thou speakest as one of the foolish women speaketh. What? shall we receive good at the hand of God, and shall we not receive evil? In all this did not Job sin with his lips”, we must PRAISE THE LORD JESUS, ALWAYS! 😉

And think about it. How many times in your life did a “bad thing” later turn out to be a “good thing”? What originally appears as a downfall can later turn out to be a blessing in disguise. For example: maybe a person was denied what they thought was their “dream job”, only to later find a DIFFERENT job that they really, really enjoyed. Or perhaps a woman that originally wanted kids found out she was going through peri-menopause and couldn’t have kids due to that and other health reasons but later discovered that she could NOT accomplish her life goals with kids in the picture (thus deciding she really didn’t want kids, AFTERALL).

Jesus Christ works in mysterious ways. And whatever pain or struggle you’re going through right now in life, not only does He know but there’s a divine purpose for it all! And though we may not always understand Jesus’s reasoning at the TIME of the struggle in our lives, the answer will later become apparent to us, someday! 😉

If you don’t have a strong faith in Jesus Christ right now and/or IN His ability to adequately control/get a handle on your life, ask yourself why. How you answer this question will determine your best course of action regaining your faith and trust in HIM! And remember: He’s willing and waiting for you WITH OPEN ARMS to come back to Him in total repentance and total faith! Just give him a chance to work in your life! 😉

And remember: God created the universe and the heavens! So don’t you think he’d know how to handle the struggles in YOUR life? You’re talking about a God here that created DNA, cells, atoms, proteins and membranes down to the VERY LAST DETAIL! 😉 So it’s not like the turmoils of everyday human life is going to have him “totally stumped” or something! haha! 😉

Struggling times are NEEDED from time to time for SPIRITUAL GROWTH. Without a struggle of ANY sort, there would be NO spiritual growth and without ANY spiritual growth, there would no NO true faith that was tested in the fire of adversity. And Hebrews 11:6 says: “But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him”.

“May we all live like Job in Job 2:10 in the Old Testament. And Praise and Glory be to your great, heavenly name! Always & Forever! Amen”.

 

 

 

 

 

 


 

“I’ve Become a Christian: Now What?” Part One

When one decides to become a Christian and gets baptized in the name of Jesus Christ (FULLY submerged baptism, not sprinkling), one will receive the free gifts of Salvation/Forgiveness of Sins and Everlasting Life. And along with this comes the gift of the Holy Spirit/Spirit of Truth that will tell you “this is of God” or “this is NOT of God”, in other words, the gift of Spiritual Discernment.

However, the MOMENT you become fully-submerged baptized in the name of Jesus Christ, Satan and his demons will IMMEDIATELY set you apart and put you on their “SPIRITUAL HITLIST” of people to spiritually attack. Because quite technically, becoming a fully-submerged baptized Christian in the name of Jesus Christ makes YOU, the Christian believer, one of Satan’s BIGGEST threats in the ENTIRE UNIVERSE (next to the Lord Jesus Christ & the Lord’s angels, themselves!) Basically, the more people turn to Jesus Christ and AWAY from the throes of Satan, the less souls that Satan will be able to steal away from Jesus Christ Almighty!

“But how exactly does Satan try to steal away a soul from Jesus Christ?”, one might ask. Well, the answer is simple: subtlety. He’s not gonna come out with the full-blazing spiritual guns, sort’ve speak, and loudly proclaim to you: “hi, I’m Satan and I’m here to try to steal your soul away! mmuhhahahhaha” No, he’s gonna be far more subtle than that. He starts out small, then works up big. For example, maybe the first thing he’ll do is use non-believing friends, family and coworkers to try to make you feel “ashamed” or “guilty” of your faith in Jesus Christ and/or to make you feel like a “religious bigot” of sorts. And then, he slowly branches out from there in his attacks.

He will then use non-believers around you to “tempt you” in doing things that go against the bible. Things like “go ahead and keep the extra change, it’s ONLY 2 quarters, nobody’s gonna care or notice”, “go ahead, get a soda refill without paying for it, nobody’s gonna care or notice” or “the bible never condemns drinking, ya know? So what’s the harm in it?” or “the bible doesn’t really prohibit pre-marital sex, sex is a gift from God, so it’s REALLY not gonna hurt ya to partake of it before marriage” or perhaps “it said that God gave us every single plant so there’s really no harm in smoking hash/marijuana/grass/mary jane”.

Well, we know first-hand that people have actually died from the synthetic “hash/marijuana” being marketed to people today as the following articles demonstrate:

http://www.cnn.com/2013/09/06/health/synthetic-marijuana-denver/

http://www.usatoday.com/story/news/nation/2014/04/02/marijuana-pot-edible-death-colorado-denver/7220685/

http://abcnews.go.com/Blotter/man-bites-dog-eats-dog-high-spice/story?id=16660512

http://abcnews.go.com/blogs/health/2012/03/05/tainted-spice-linked-to-kidney-failure-outbreak/

So yes, there is REAL HARM in it, not only physical and mental harm, but spiritual harm as well, MARK MY WORDS!

But going back to the topic at hand, spiritual warfare. If you attempt to save yourself for marriage, Satan will no doubt try to tempt you with lust, pornography, and the like. And he will MOST SPECIFICALLY use a non-believing boyfriend/girlfriend to do that. And if THAT doesn’t work, Satan will try a slightly different approach. He will get the non-believing boyfriend/girlfriend to put pressure on you. “Oh what, you don’t love me? Is that it? Are you cheating on me or what? Yeah well, EVERYBODY’S doing it and you’re gonna have trouble finding someone who isn’t!” to try to SHAME you into pre-marital sex.

And if and when you DO ever cave to the temptation of pre-marital sex, Satan will use the “guilt” and “shame” you feel over it to EVEN FURTHER drag you down (spiritually speaking). Satan will try like heck to get you to believe the LIE of “well, I’ve already done it once, I might as well keep doing it since Jesus Christ is too ashamed of me, now!” And then, once Satan has you hating yourself, he gots you right where he wants you and you are “fair game” to him, spiritually speaking.

Some people think “once marked in the name of God, always marked in the name of God” but that’s just not true! For when Christians become luke-warm or REPEATEDLY cave to Satan’s temptations (such as “go ahead and have pre-marital sex on a continual basis, God’s not gonna care”, “Jesus doesn’t care if you continually party, he partied himself at the wedding at Canaan”, “go ahead and continually smoke hash with the coworkers, it’s alright”), the mark of God on them/the burning fire in their hearts FOR the Lord (brought on by full immersion baptism) will start to “fade/die out” over time until one day, it’s hardly ignited in their hearts at all and then, if the person STAYS on the path of darkness, the flame in their hearts FOR God might just disappear altogether. And the only way for them to RE-IGNITE that flame in their hearts FOR the Lord Jesus Christ is to once again, read God’s Word/the bible, REPENT of all sins and RE-APPLY the bible to their lives!

“But why is baptism even NEEDED in the first place?”, one might ask and the simple answer is this: baptism (the “ceremonial washing away of sins” is not only done TO Jesus Christ himself in the river Jordan in the New Testament by John the Baptist) but the bible has about 12+ passages that command baptism and they are as follows:

1. Matthew 28:19 “Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit

2. Mark 1:5 “And there went out unto him all the land of Judaea, and they of Jerusalem, and were all baptized of him in the river of Jordan, confessing their sins”

3. Luke 3:21 “Now when all the people were baptized, it came to pass, that Jesus also being baptized, and praying, the heaven was opened,”

4. Galatians 3:27 “For as many of you as have been baptized into Christ have put on Christ”

5. Matthew 3:6 “And were baptized of him in Jordan, confessing their sins”

 6. Mark 16:16 “He who believes and is baptized is saved but he who does not believe is condemned”

 7. Acts 2:38 “Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ and every one of you shall receive the gift of the Holy Spirit”

 8. John 3:5 “Jesus answered, most truly I say to you, unless anyone is born of water and spirit [baptized], one cannot enter the Kingdom of God [heaven]“

 9. Acts 10:48 “With that, he commanded them to baptized in the name of Christ

10. Acts 22:16 “And now, why are you delaying? Rise and get baptized and wash your sins away by calling upon his name”

11. Colossians 2:12 “Buried with him in baptism, wherein also ye are risen with him through the faith of the operation of God, who hath raised him from the dead

12. Romans 6:4 “Therefore we are buried with him by baptism into death: that like as Christ was raised up from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life”

13. Ephesians 4:5 “One Lord, one faith, one baptism

14. 1 Peter 3:21 “The like figure whereunto even baptism doth also now save us by the resurrection of Jesus Christ”

[[**And for those who think or worry that babies go to hell if they’re not baptized, John 15:22 says: “If I had not come and spoken unto them, they had not had sin: but now they have no cloak for their sin“. In other words, babies are pardoned. Except in the cases of the Old Testament where a whole entire city was wiped out, the decree of Herod, and the decree of the Lord against Pharaoh and the Egyptians, all babies are pardoned. Jesus Christ said in Matthew 19:14 “But Jesus said, Suffer little children, and forbid them not, to come unto me: for of such is the kingdom of heaven“. ]]

Even though Satan STILL tempts those who are “already his” (spiritually speaking) — (this is evidenced for example when famous people spiral further & further out of control due to Satan FURTHER tempting them to go even FURTHER and FURTHER down the path of darkness such as “go ahead, join the million dollar club”, “open up a new nightclub”, “go ahead and do some Hollywood drug using/dealing on the side, it’s not gonna kill you” and the like) — he’s actually far more interested in the “saints of God” (that is to say, TRUE biblical-roots Christians who not only have the testimony of the Word of God/the Holy Bible written on their hearts, but actually go out and APPLY it to their lives). Why? Because THOSE people are the true “threats” to him. But basically, his goal is to tempt ALL. He wants to keep those already under his spell IN his spiritual grip and he wants to try to get those who are OUT of his control (true Christians) INTO his control, if that makes any sense.

Jesus said in John 15: 18-23 “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

Matthew 16: 24-26 says “Then said Jesus unto his disciples, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me. For whosoever will save his life shall lose it: and whosoever will lose his life for my sake shall find it. For what is a man profited, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul? or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul?”

John 16:23 says “These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world

So in other words, Jesus Christ NEVER promised that being a true Christian would be “easy”. In fact, he suggested it would be anything BUT easy in today’s evil, evil world. However, in John 16:23, he reminds us not to worry about the trials and tribulation we will have in this world because he’s ALREADY overcome the world.

Matthew 5:10 states: “Blessed are they which are persecuted for righteousness’ sake: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven“. Verses 11-12 go on to say: “Blessed are ye, when men shall revile you, and persecute you, and shall say all manner of evil against you falsely, for my sake. Rejoice, and be exceeding glad: for great is your reward in heaven: for so persecuted they the prophets which were before you”.

So in other words, when you TRULY live for Jesus Christ, people are gonna take notice and some are gonna severely persecute you for it. However, when this happens, Jesus Christ says to be glad since your rewards in heaven will be great whenever this happens. And the REASON why we are persecuted for our faith in Jesus Christ is because he (Jesus) wants to TEST our faith and teach us how to have STRONG FAITH, even in the face of Adversity! Think back to Abraham in the Old Testament. The Lord wanted to test Abraham and his faith to see if he (Abraham) valued the Lord above, first and foremost before everything else in his life. And thankfully, Abraham passed the test. We also read about a guy named Job (pronounced Yob) in the Old Testament who also had HIS faith put to the test. And once again, he ALSO thankfully passed the testing of his faith. But there are some out there who when their faith is tested, fall.

Matthew 7: 24-27 states: “Therefore whosoever heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them, I will liken him unto a wise man, which built his house upon a rock:And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell not: for it was founded upon a rock. And every one that heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them not, shall be likened unto a foolish man, which built his house upon the sand:And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell: and great was the fall of it”. In other words, how strong is our faith and trust in the Lord? Will we bow out and give up at the FIRST sign of persecution or will we hold strong, even IN SPITE of major adversity, like Abraham and Job did in the Old Testament?

 

What Is The True Gospel of Jesus Christ?

All men are sinners. “For all men have sinned and have fallen short of the glory of God” [Romans 3:23]

“For God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten Son [Jesus Christ], that whoever believeth in him should not perish but have everlasting life. For God did not send his son [Jesus Christ] to condemn the world but that through Him [Jesus Christ] the world might be saved” [John 3: 16-17]

“He who believes in Him [Jesus Christ] is not condemned; but he who does not believe is condemned already, because he has not believed in the only begotten Son of God [Jesus Christ]” {John 3:18}

So essentially what this means is that over 1976+ years ago, God put his only begotten Son, Jesus Christ, to die on the cross for salvation/forgiveness of mankind’s sins. And on that Cross, Jesus Christ shed his holy blood (along with the water of life that gushed out of his side wound) in order to give us the “free gift” of *SALVATION* (forgiveness of sins, if we choose to receive that “free gift” in our hearts!) and the chance for everlasting life [eternity with God/Jesus Christ].

3 days later, Jesus Christ was resurrected from the dead, just like he said he would do. There are SEVERAL eyewitness accounts, which record seeing Jesus AFTER he was resurrected from the dead. This would in fact PROVE that Jesus was the Son of God! And all these eyewitnesses were faced with martyrdom [death] FOR their eyewitness testimony, but not one of them recanted their faith (upon the threat of death)! NOT ONE

1 Corinthians 15:3-6
John 20:10-18
Matt 28:8-10
Luke 24:13-32
Luke 24:33-49
John 20:19-23
John 20:26-30
John 21:1-14
Matt 28:16-20
Luke 24:50-52
Acts 1:9-11

40 days later, in front of several witnesses, Jesus Christ ascended up to heaven to be on the right hand throne of God [the heavenly Father] and won victory over “sin and death” [hell/the Devil].

In other words, when Jesus died for all of mankind’s sins on the cross over 1976+ years ago, he provided a way for mankind to achieve *eternal life*, AWAY from the confines of eternal death/the lake of fire. But God [the heavenly Father] said in his holy divine book, the bible, that the ONLY way a person could achieve *eternal life* is to BELIEVE in Jesus Christ, pray for forgiveness of sins, acknowledge that they’re a sinner, accept Jesus Christ into their hearts as Lord & Savior, REPENT of their sins, become baptized in the name of Jesus Christ and CONTINUE to obey the Lord throughout their day to day lives. So it’s a 7-part process.

Basically, when you become a Christian/”Saved”, you acknowledge that you’re a sinner in God’s eyes and that you NEED forgiveness of your sins. You thank Jesus Christ for his *free gift* of salvation on the cross, you pray for forgiveness of your sins, you accept Jesus as your personal Lord & Savior (God Almighty in the flesh), you REPENT of your sins, you become baptized in the name of Jesus Christ, and then you “pick up your cross and follow him”.

That means to leave the old life behind. For example, if you used to drink a lot before accepting Jesus Christ in your heart, that means you give up drinking. If you used to be addicted to sex, drugs, pornography, etc., that means you give those things up and don’t do/partake of them anymore. [But don’t worry, because if God created the Earth & the Heavens, he can certainly help people overcome their addictions or things that draw people away from God!]

When you truly accept Jesus Christ into your heart, pray for forgiveness of your sins, allow him to become Lord & Savior, repent of your sins AND become baptized in the name of Jesus Christ, your spirit is renewed in Christ and you start a New Life in Him. Therefore, you must separate yourselves from ALL worldly/sinful things (drinking, drugs, partying, greed, lust, pride, addiction(s), love of money, etc.). What this means is that, in order to become friends with God, you must become enemies of the world.

“Adulterers and Adulteresses, don’t you know that friendship with the world is enmity [hatred] toward God? Anyone who chooses to be a friend of the world becomes an enemy of God” [James 4:4]

Meaning, you must separate yourselves from the “ungodly pursuits” (money, self, globalism/“many-paths-to-enlightenment”-movement, pleasure) of the world and seek after the “pursuits” of Jesus (such as humility, servitude to God instead of self, kindness/forgiveness towards others, pleasure in serving God’s will).

But in order to live a true Christian life, we must first know the bible. If you don’t know the bible for yourself, the Devil (working through various people) will try to turn you on to “false doctrines” (the ones I talked about in my previous post) and will try to do everything in his power (even working through people close to you, like your own friends, family and even coworkers, for instance) to try to get you to lose your faith in Jesus Christ!

Jesus commands us to become baptized. When we get baptized, we receive the free *gift* of the Holy Spirit (which in turn, gives us the gift of spiritual discernment and/or conviction of sins). It is also represents the “ceremonial washing away of sins”.

“He who believes and is baptized will be saved, but he who does not believe will be condemned” [Mark 16:16]

Because we now live in such a dark, depraved, fallen world, there’s many lost and restless souls out there, who feel like their life has no meaning or that try to fill their hearts with things other than God.

So once you become a true believer in Jesus Christ, you must “go out and make disciples [more believers in Jesus] among all nations” [Matthew 28:19]

God can’t let ANY sin into his heavenly kingdom. That’s why, if a person doesn’t accept Jesus Christ into their hearts by the end of their lives, that God can’t admit them into what the New Testament calls the heavenly city of “New Jerusalem” [Revelation chapters 21-22!] . They are “spiritually unclean” and God is a holy, divine, PURE God. When we accept Jesus Christ into our hearts AND get full-water-immersion baptized in his great, heavenly name, we are “made spiritually clean” in God’s eyes.

But if we reject Jesus Christ/do not acknowledge Him before our deaths in this life, then God [Jesus Christ] is going to judge us for each and every single sin we’ve ever committed over the TOTALITY of our LIFETIMES and send us to hell (whose fires will eventually be merged into the lake of fire), NO EXCEPTIONS, ***PERIOD!***

So PLEASE, people! Get right with Jesus TODAY! Time is running out.

Pray the following prayer:

“Lord Jesus, I’m a sinner. I pray to you for forgiveness of my sins and I pray for you to become my Lord & Savior. Please give me a new heart and a new mind. Please don’t let me fall victim to the “Apostasy”[doctrines other than what Jesus taught] going on in the Christian Church AND in the secular world today. And also, don’t ALLOW me to believe the world’s LIE that you aren’t God or that you’re not the ONLY way to salvation/heaven! Amen”.

And then get baptized in the name of Jesus Christ since Jesus commands it in Mark 16:16 “He who believes and is baptized will be saved, but he who does not believe will be condemned”

And then you be rest assured that Jesus will NEVER blot out your name from The Book of Life talked about in Philippians 4:3 (his *record book* of faithful followers) and that you’ll get to live with Jesus forever in eternity!

And I know eternity is sort’ve scary to think about for some folks, as in “what would living FOREVER be like? Yikes!” but for those of us who get to enter eternity with God, we will enter “New Jerusalem” with glorified bodies (meaning, bodies that are “perfect” in God’s site: so I can only assume that to mean no wrinkles or age spots, or walking canes or glasses/contacts, or anything else that one would deem “imperfect”).

Oh and guys, trust me. There IS no “hidden catch” to salvation. You ask Jesus to come into your heart, you pray for forgiveness of your sins, you repent of (turn completely away from) your sins, you get FULL-WATER baptized in the name of Jesus Christ, you CONTINUE to obey the Lord in your lives……you’re saved…….and you no longer have to worry about being sent to the “fire that never quenches” (aka the fires of hell that MERGE INTO the lake of fire will become the “fire that never quenches”, which Jesus Christ describes as the “weeping and gnashing of teeth”, etc.)

One last thing I wanted to mention here real quick is that Jesus Christ is the ONLY way to Salvation. Meaning, no other person, principle or creed is needed. JUST Jesus Christ alone! For Jesus said in John 14:6….

“I am the way, the truth and the light. No-one comes to the Father [Everlasting Life/Paradise] except by Me [Jesus Christ]” John 14:6

“Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved” Acts 4:12
