The Apocrypha: God’s Written Word Or “Catholic Doctrine?”

As a preacher/teacher of God’s Written Word (The Bible), it’s very, very hard for me to admit when I am wrong or when I’ve made a mistake as it pertains TO God’s Written Word. However, it is with much humbled grief that I ask for the readers’ forgiveness (as well as the Lord Jesus’s forgiveness) for my mistake.

Note: In my postings entitled: “Satan’s Bride: The Roman Catholic Church”, I previously thought (like many Protestant-leaning souls out there) that the Apocrypha was UNBIBLICAL and ADDED *CATHOLIC DOCTRINE*. However, it has most recently come to my attention that that is NOT the case. I have since replaced the graphic showing the Apocrypha on that particular page/post to a graphic showing the Catheism” (which clearly is NOT biblical, since we’re not supposed to “WAIT” to get Salvation in Christ!!!!)

But anyways, on with the story……So I was most recently doing some research on how they decided what all books of the bible to put in or not put in, when I came across a piece of information which said that the Apocrypha WAS INCLUDED in the ORIGINAL 1611 KJV BIBLE! [WOW! THAT JUST COMPLETELY BLEW ME AWAY!]

Not to mention that the Apocrypha was ALSO included among several fragments found in the DEAD SEA SCROLLS! (I never knew that, either!) And AS I began to dig further and further, it seems like the general consensus was that these books were REMOVED from the KJV bible around the time of the 1800’s! That really blew my mind as well! Because anyone that knows American spiritual history also knows that that’s around the same time that “Christmas” very first started being observed in America! (NOTICE THE CONNECTION?)

But yet, here’s where things get sort’ve confusing…….We know from history that the Catholic Church “created Christmas out of THIN AIR” (based on the former Pagan holiday, Saturnalia and also on the deeds of the “Catholic bishop” named “Nicolaus”). However, most Catholic Churches have KEPT the Apocrypha in their bibles, minus a few books. However, most Protestants have DONE AWAY WITH the Apocrypha and have written it off as Catholic, ONLY!” (This is strange, to say the least….?) 

However, one thing is CERTAIN: early Christians must’ve considered these books VERY IMPORTANT, in order to include them in the bible! So WHY then were they REMOVED from the bible? Why, indeed!? Some think there’s a “conspiracy” of sorts, that these books contained “sacred information” that the inner “Jewish world” didn’t want outsiders to know! But it must go much deeper than that……..?

But now there’s this whole big controversy about WHAT books should be included in the Apocrypha and RATHER or not the Apocrypha should be considered “inspired scripture” or not. That immediately caught my attention. Because if something is gonna have THAT MUCH against it/opposed to it, there must be something TO it, right? (Or so my “spiritual mind” says to myself, anyways……)

In fact, did you know that there’s 1-2 movies out there with the NAME “Apocrypha” that DON’T HAVE ANYTHING TO DO WITH THE BIBLICAL APOCRYPHA **AT ALL?** That just proves my point of how SATAN DECEIVES! Because NOW, when MOST people hear the word “Apocrypha”, they won’t even likely think of things from the bible or of THE bible but will instead be thinking about a “vampire” movie, etc. of the same name! OUCH! 

But anyways, many have been asking this very question FOR YEARS: So how are we to know what happened during the times between the Old and New Testament? Why such the big gap in human history? Well, quite frankly, there IS a complete “history” of the time between the Old and New Testaments and that IS the events talked about in the Apocrypha!

Therefore, the WHOLE WRITTEN TRUTH of God has been with us ALL ALONG, it’s just that most people had NO IDEA, until now. But several people in these last days are just now starting to WAKE UP to that fact (as evidenced by the sheer NUMBER of Amazon reviews of KJV WITH APOCRYPHA bibles and so, as a born-again believer, that makes me really, really hopeful!) 

Anyhow, it was only after much “research” that I discovered that these books were not “Catholic doctrine” in any way, shape or form but were rather, EARLY CHURCH DOCTRINE! That really gets me and makes me take pause. Because obviously the EARLY CHRISTIANS/MESSIANIC JEWS would NOT have included it among their “doctrines” if it weren’t important, right?

So I did a google search. I thought: if these books were purposely removed from the bible, I’ve GOT to find out WHY, specifically, and find out WHAT on God’s green Earth was so threatening about them, to begin with!By the way, did you know that Apocrypha means HIDDEN? What do THEY (the ones that REMOVED the Apocrypha) have to HIDE? It certainly begs of question, here!  

Well, I’ve read portions of the Apocrypha books so far. And I can tell ya right now that they only seem to CONFIRM the bible (Old to New Testament), CONFIRM Jesus Christ’s divinity/Messiahship, and EXPOUND on the bible! “Wow”, I thought to myself, “could THAT maybe be why the *Rabbinical/Orthodox* Jews wanted to DO AWAY with the Apocrypha? Because they didn’t like all the passages pointing to Jesus as their Messiah?”

Well, to answer that question (and more), I went on over to Amazon and purchased the following (because like many others out there who are just now discovering the complete 100% written truth of God, I WANT and NEED to be able to read God’s COMPLETE Written Truth, from COVER TO COVER): 

middle-testament

https://www.amazon.com/Holy-Bible-James-Version-Apocrypha/dp/1480007889/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1480800135&sr=8-1&keywords=kjv+with+apocrypha

The list of the Apocrypha books are as follows: 

  • Esdras 1
  • Esdras 2
  • Tobit
  • Judith
  • The rest of the book of Esther
  • The Wisdom of Solomon
  • Ecclesiasticus 
  • Baruch
  • The Epistle (Letter) of Jeremiah
  • The rest of the book of Daniel (including Susanna, The Song of the Three Children, Bel and the Dragon)
  • Maccabees 1
  • Mabbabees 2

{Note: Now, there’s some MORE books that are mentioned in either the Old or New Testament that are NOT included on this list here from Derek A. Shaver’s KJV with Apocrypha (for whatever reason?) and one of them is “The Book of Jasher”, etc. And in fact, I’ve ALWAYS and forever wondered WHY the bible (especially the Old Testament) talks about OTHER books (such AS “The Book of Jasher”) that are NOT included in today’s Protestant KJV bible!

Why even mention those books in the OTHER testament books if they had no meaning or value, right? But whatever the reason, I’ve decided to read the book of Jasher, etc. separately, in order to get a true feel for why the book of Jasher, etc. was mentioned in the {Old Testament?} in the first place!

And not to further confuse any of ya’ll, but there’s ALSO something called THE PSEUDEPIGRAPHA or what some call “false writings” since they were SO-CALLED written by others than whom the “writings” were originally attributed to or something like that. But as I READ some of these Pseudepigrapha writings (especially, the book of Enoch 1 and the 1st and 2nd book of Adam and Eve), I can’t help but wonder if some of these books were ALSO written by Moses and possibly even “inspired” since, just like the Apocrypha, they seem to be not only CONFIRMING the bible (Old and New Testaments) but also EXPOUNDING on it! [Although I don’t agree with ALL of the “lost scriptures”. For example, I DO NOT agree with any of the Gnostic Gospels such as the Gospel of Thomas, Mary or Judas!] 

Plus, in an odd sense, if any of those writings WERE inspired by God TO Moses, then it makes PERFECT SENSE that the Devil, the enemy of mankind, would try to do WHATEVER he could to try to discredit and disqualify them and then change what we already HAVE as our “bible”, so that people were further and further DECEIVED and taken AWAY from the COMPLETE truth of the Everlasting God of Heaven, Earth and the Universe! 

the-pseudepigrapha

It’s kind’ve funny though how the COMPLETE written truth of God is in many ways, like a sacred “scavenger hunt”. For you have to search for God’s written truth through MANY, MANY different layers, like peeling back an onion of sorts. In other words, you have to do some SERIOUS DIGGING to get to the COMPLETE PEARL of God’s COMPLETE written truth.

I’m seriously spiritually lamenting (now that I’m “in the know”) about just how many people have NO IDEA that 14-15 extra books were EXCLUDED from the bible in the 1800s! Probably MILLIONS upon MILLONS….People just take their “Protestant KJV” for granted, not EVER thinking (as a whole) that maybe there’s more to it than JUST the Old and New Testaments. Because OFCOURSE Almighty God would want us to know the COMPLETE HISTORY from beginning to end, and NOT just a “part” of it, right?

Although I have to admit, I’m STILL in complete and utter shock over this! As I read through my KJV + Apocrypha bible by Derek A. Shaver, I pray that it will enlighten my heart and my SOUL to God’s Written Word like NEVER BEFORE and that I will never, EVER stray from Jesus’s COMPLETE written word for ALL ETERNITY! I feel SO lucky and BLESSED beyond belief that I have FINALLY come to know THE TRUTH about the Apocrypha! And now, you, my beloved readers, know the truth as well! And the truth shall set you free! 😉

P.S.: The REASON I recommend the Derek A. Shaver version is because it has original Gothic headings and subheadings and updated spelling WITHOUT changing the “concept” of the words from the original 1611 KJV. And even though MUCH DEBATE still rages about rather or not these 14-15 books are “inspired” or not, they’re differently worth a read, rather as PART of the bible or as a separate “reference section”. Heck, even Martin Luther HIMSELF said they were “beneficial reading”.

I hope and pray that this post has FURTHER encouraged and enlightened you to search out and read God’s COMPLETE written word, before it’s too late and taken out of print again! Thanks and have a blessed, wonderful day in the name of the Lord! Amen. 

22 Lies of the Modern Day Christian “Church”

1). **The Church Is A Building And Not A Body Of Believers**

FALSE!

Around the time of 325A.D., Roman emperor Constantine decided that “Christians” should have a “church building” like the Pagans did and thus, attempted to change the meeting practices of ALL Christians within the Roman Empire and royally commissioned several church buildings to be built. In fact, he is considered the “father of church buildings”.

But we know from the bible that church buildings are NOT biblical! In other words, the TRUE “church” of Jesus Christ Almighty IS the body/assembly of believers THEMSELVES and NOT a “building”! Several bible passages in point:

 John 2:19Jesus answered and said unto them, Destroy this temple, and in three days I will raise it up

**Mark 14:58** “We heard him say, I will destroy this temple that is made with hands, and within three days I will build another made without hands” 

Matthew 26:61And said, This fellow said, I am able to destroy the temple of God, and to build it in three days

[Note: The top 3 passages all talk about Jesus Christ speaking of HIS BODY, which had REPLACED the Jewish temple in significance and WOULD permanently replace the Jewish “temple” AT his death and resurrection, as recorded in Matthew 27:51 and Mark 15:38]

Matthew 27:51And, behold, the veil of the temple was rent in twain from the top to the bottom; and the earth did quake, and the rocks rent

Mark 15:38And the veil of the temple was rent in twain from the top to the bottom

Ephesians 2:19-22 states: “Now therefore ye are no more strangers and foreigners, but fellow citizens with the saints, and of the household of God; And are built upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ himself being the chief cornerstone; In whom all the building fitly framed together groweth unto an holy temple in the Lord: In whom ye also are builded together for an habitation of God through the Spirit

Acts 2:47Praising God, and having favour with all the people. And the Lord added to the church daily such as should be saved

Acts 17:24God that made the world and all things therein, seeing that he is Lord of heaven and earth, dwelleth NOT in temples made with hands

2 Corinthians 5:1For we know that if our earthly house of this tabernacle were dissolved, we have a building of God, an house not made with hands, eternal in the heavens

Hebrews 9:24 For Christ is not entered into the holy places made with hands, which are the figures of the true; but into heaven itself, now to appear in the presence of God for us

Matthew 8:20 “Jesus said to him, “The foxes have holes and the birds of the air have nests, but the Son of Man has nowhere to lay His head

Matthew 5:14-16Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid. Neither do men light a candle, and put it under a bushel, but on a candlestick; and it giveth light unto all that are in the house. Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven”

The whole entire CONCEPT of a “church building”, in and of itself, is a MANMADE INSTITUTION, by man, FOR man, ADMINISTERED by man and NOT for or by Jesus Christ Almighty (lets get real, here!) The modern day “church” operates LIKE A BUSINESS (money offering plates, “church budgets”, church real-estate, pastor salaries, etc.)

Not to mention that Jesus’s apostles and followers were more like a “traveling assembly of believers”. Jesus Christ carried no money or possessions with Him. In fact, the “assembly” of believers went OUT into the world (into the public square and market places to preach the Lord Jesus’s message of Salvation, they didn’t hide behind 4 walls one day a week!) Instead of trying to invite outsiders IN, they instead CHASED AFTER the “outsiders” to preach the message of Salvation. Where and when do you ever see that sort’ve thing happening today (outside of a few Jehovah’s Witnesses going door to door — but that’s a different post for a different day). 

Most “Christians” of today actually HIDE behind the 4 walls of the “church building” instead of BEING the church. Because remember that the TRUE “church” of Jesus Christ is the BODY OF BELIEVERS!

Now, does that mean that the “true church” (the body/assembly of believers themselves) CAN’T meet inside a building every week? No. Because people that meet in a building every week can still “BE” the church (attending to the poor and needy, etc.) all throughout the week if they TRULY desire to live by Jesus Christ’s holy commandments. But they can NOT (if they are to be 100% biblically accurate) call the “building” the “house of God”, say that “church buildings are biblical — historically speaking” or say they are “going to church“, for they must remember (biblically-speaking) that they ARE “the church”! 

2). The Sabbath Day and the Lord’s Day are one and the same.

FALSE!

The Sabbath is a day of rest/reflection/celebration each week (which is biblically on SATURDAY) while the Lord’s Day refers to the time of revelation and judgement. This is evidenced by Amos 5:20, Isaiah 8:22, Isaiah 13:10, Obadiah 1:15, and Zephaniah 1:15

3). The Sabbath is on Sunday and not Saturday.

FALSE!

Constantine CHANGED THE BIBLICAL 7th Day SABBATH from Saturday TO SUN-DAY, venerable worship day of the SUN! Therefore, modern day Christianity is more or less just ANCIENT BABYLONIAN SUN WORSHIP, REPACKAGED!

4). One must wait to be baptized.

FALSE!

During the time of Jesus and the apostles and the 1st century, “Christians” got baptized almost IMMEDIATELY upon believing upon the name of Jesus Christ, with little or no delay!

5). One must tithe in order to have financial favor from the Almighty.

FALSE!

There is NO biblical command to tithe 1/10th of one’s income! Just like there is NO biblical command to tithe to pay for “church building upgrades” or the “pastor’s new car”, etc.

6). The Lord’s supper is supposed to be a SOLEMN assembly with a simple wafer cracker and shot glass of wine.

FALSE!

The Lord’s supper was/is supposed to be a FULL FESTIVE MEAL of HAPPY CELEBRATION with each partaker partaking of it EQUALLY! As in, it is NOT EVEN BIBLICAL to have one person “set above” another for the Lord’s supper since, according to the bible, ALL partakers of the Lord’s Supper are considered EQUAL and NO-ONE has the right, biblically speaking, to dress up in special garments and set up an “alter table” that only the priest/pastor is allowed to pray over!

During the time of the Last Supper, Jesus and his 12 apostles were partaking of the Last Supper during PASSOVER, when a Passover lamb was to be sacrificed/slaughtered.

And in ancient/current Jewish tradition, the PASSOVER was/is an ELABORATE meal.

So in other words, it was meant to be a FULL MEAL.

We find evidence of that in Acts 2: 46-47, Luke 14: 12-14, and 1 Corinthians 11:20. (Ofcourse, 1 Corinthians 11:20 is about Paul condemning the ones who PROFANED the Lord’s Supper by not waiting for all the poor people to come to the feast and these “rich folks” having eating/drinking early, leaving hardly anything left for the poor people when they [the poor people] finally arrived to the feast of the Passover/Lord’s Supper).

And not only that but ALOT of preparation went INTO the Lord’s Supper BY the disciples FOR the “Passover meal”. Why all that “prep” if there was only gonna be ONE tiny sip out of a cup of wine and one TINY little wafer cracker to eat? Think about it, folks!

The REASON so much “prep” was involved is because it was a “Passover meal”, which, in turn, was an ELABORATE/FULL MEAL!

7). The Lord is pleased by lavish churches/buildings.

FALSE!

If anything, NOTHING makes the Lord Almighty angrier than to have humans think that “the church building” is the church, when in all actuality, the TRUE CHURCH is the BODY OF BELIEVERS! The believers in Jesus Christ Almighty ARE themselves “the church”!

8). Sermons/pews/”dressing up for church”/tithing/paid pastors/choirs are biblical.

FALSE!

All of things are rooted deeply in PAGAN TRADITION and have NO ROOTS IN THE BIBLE!

9). Only the PASTOR is qualified to read/know/study scripture.

FALSE!

According to the bible, we (ALL believers in Jesus Christ Almighty) are ALL considered “ministers” in God’s eyes, and are called to be so unto the “unbelieving world”, according to the bible!

10). Non-pastoral staff are not ALLOWED to preach about the bible or “be smart enough to do so” to others.

FALSE!

The bible calls us ALL “ministers” unto God and says in 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 Ghost“.

11). Going to “commercialized/institutionalized” church (as a whole) every week produces spiritual growth.

NOT NECESSARILY!

It actually can actually hinder spiritual growth, when one hears the sermon of ONE person (the paid pastor – who oftentimes WON’T preach about SIN and REPENTANCE OF SIN) while NOT getting to hear about OTHER PEOPLE’S experiences with God/Jesus Christ Almighty.

However, it all depends on the church and the pastor. If the pastor preaches about bible prophecy and how congregants need to REPENT of their sins and SPEAK OUTS against homosexuality/sodomy/etc but does so with love, then chances are that’s it’s a good “church” and that it WILL produce spiritual growth.

And there’s a few good “end times prophecy” churches out there today (Calvary Church-Kaneohe, http://www.openyoureyespeople.com/Evangelist Anita Fuentes), etc.

But today’s “commercialized” Christian churches (as a whole) are DEAD *because* of the fact that they (as a whole) do NOT teach bible prophecy or repentance of sins, etc. And it’s THOSE particular churches that I’m addressing, here (Hint: think about all the “politically correct” mega-churches out there, today and all those churches that ACCEPT open homosexuals among their ranks and that WON’T preach about sin)……

12). The “commercialized/institutionalized” church is a good place to meet other bible believing/bible-adhering Christians.

NOT NECESSARILY!

In a large church, it can honestly take well over a year to get to know each and every single member of a “church” and most people that go to a church are honestly more interested in their own lives, rather than in other people’s. Sad but true. Plus most Christians today that go to a “traditional/institutionalized” church will look at you funny if you tell them that you believe the bible is 100% LITERAL and that you think homosexuality’s a sin. I’M SERIOUS!

That is, UNLESS you can find a “church” that actually DOES teach and preach the bible 100%. And there’s a few good churches out there that DO just that, especially in the South (and ESPECIALLY small churches). But for the MOST PART, today’s Christian churches (as a whole) are SPIRITUALLY DEAD!  

13). Jesus Christ considers it a sin to not go to “institutionalized church” every Sunday (the “Catholic man-made Sabbath”).

FALSE!

Jesus Christ is actually GLORIFIED when a person forgoes “institutionalized man-made Sabbath/Sunday church” altogether in order to read/study the bible at home and ALSO when they celebrate the Lord’s TRUE, BIBLICAL 7th Day Sabbath (which is SATURDAY!) That way, the spiritual relationship one has with Jesus Christ is MUCH more personal and less “forced/commercialized”. In fact, I’ve learned FAR MORE about Jesus Christ & his gospel in my own PERSONAL study of the bible at home and by a couple of good “online/end times prophecy churches” [such as Calvary Chapel – Kaneohe and Evangelist Anita Fuentes] than by going to any “institutionalized modern-day church” (as a whole).  

14). A person must “go to church” in order to be/become a “true Christian”.

FALSE!

A “true Christian”, by Jesus Christ Almighty’s/the bible itself’s definition, is one who abides in truth and shares that truth with others. In other words, a Christian believer is supposed to BE “the church”, not “GO TO CHURCH”. 

So how does one do that? Simple. Read the bible, front to back, KING JAMES VERSION.

And then after one reads it, BELIEVE IT, 100%, every word, and then APPLY IT to one’s life. Learn it, live it, breath it, make it a part of your every breath in life. How? Easy. Forgive the people who’ve hurt you in your life. Preach the gospel of Jesus Christ and Salvation to others. Be slow to anger and quick to forgive. Don’t be jealous of what others have. Don’t bow down to statues or obsess over/worship celebrities. Make the 10 commandments an everyday part of your life. Generously/cheerfully give to others who are less fortunate than you, etc.

15). ALL “Christians” go to spend Eternity with Jesus Christ someday.

FALSE!

Matthew 7:13-14 states: “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“.

Translation? VERY FEW “Christians” will eternally reside with Jesus Christ someday. VERY. FEW. And THE REASON why that is, is because of the “false biblical model” practiced in EVERY SINGLE CHRISTIAN “CHURCH” TODAY!!!!!!!!!!

And here’s what Jesus Christ has to say on such matters:

“Making the word of God of none effect through your tradition, which ye have delivered: and many such like things do ye” — Mark 7:13

And why call ye me, Lord, Lord, and do not the things which I say?” — Luke 6:46

 I am afraid of you, lest I have bestowed upon you labour in vain” — Galatians 4:11

“I hate, I despise your feast days, and I will not smell in your solemn assemblies” — Amos 5:21

16). Christmas and Easter, and the celebration of them, thereof, are completely biblical and “please the Lord” in their observance(s).

FALSE!

Both are rooted in PAGAN TRADITION from the ROMAN CATHOLIC CHURCH, ANGER THE LORD **HIGHLY** and have ZERO ROOTS IN THE BIBLE! That’s right, you heard me. ZERO!

In fact, here is the Almighty’s view on “Christmas” and “Easter“:

For the customs of the people are vain: for one cutteth a tree out of the forest, the work of the hands of the workman, with the axe. They deck it with silver and with gold; they fasten it with nails and with hammers, that it move not – Jeremiah 10:3-4 [Note: please keep in mind that this was from the OLD TESTAMENT, long before the first “Christian christmas” was ever observed!!]

“They that sanctify themselves, and purify themselves in the gardens behind one tree in the midst, eating swine’s flesh, and the abomination, and the mouse, shall be consumed together, saith the LORD” — [Isaiah 66:17]

I have spread out my hands all the day unto a rebellious people, which walketh in a way that was not good, after their own thoughts; A people that provoketh me to anger continually to my face; that sacrificeth in gardens, and burneth incense upon altars of brick; Which remain among the graves, and lodge in the monuments, which eat swine’s flesh, and broth of abominable things is in their vessels” — [Isaiah 65: 2-4]

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] (And we know from the bible that all won’t be fulfilled till the VERY END of Revelation, chapter 22 in the New Testament, think about it, folks!)

17). There are NO “Pagan elements” in the modern day Christian “religion”.

FALSE!

Every single thing ABOUT modern day Christianity are ROOTED IN PAGANISM! DO YOUR RESEARCH, FOLKS!

  • The sermon
  • Paid pastors
  • Tithing 10% of one’s income
  • Church buildings, in and of themselves
  • The church choir
  • Pews
  • Submissive participation in “the sermon”, instead of active participation
  • Idols
  • The burning of incense
  • Pagan holidays repackaged as “Christian holidays”
  • Waiting to be baptized
  • {If Catholic or Lutheran}: The worship of the VIRGIN MARY & “demons” (which they FALSELY claim are “saints”)
  • Etc.

PAGAN THEFT

18). All of the Lord’s holidays outlined in the Old Testament in Leviticus 23 are “Jewish holidays, ONLY” and “no longer apply to *Christians* today!”

FALSE!

Jesus Christ and the apostles celebrated all SEVEN of them, plus the 2 “Minor” feasts of the Lord (Chanukah and Purim). The ROMAN CATHOLIC CHURCH (still in bed with their Pagan counterparts and Pagan tradition) created the FALSE CHRISTIAN/PAGAN HOLIDAYS that you see today, including Christmas, Halloween, Easter, St. Valentine’s Day, St. Patrick’s Day, Lent, Good Friday, etc.)

Truth is, there is NOTHING that the Lord God Almighty hates MORE than when seemingly “Christian” people take a PAGAN holiday (such as Christmas or Easter, for instance) and then try to stamp HIS Almighty name on it! He considers these “Pagan Christian” holidays A COMPLETE ABOMINATION! You want to know WHY? Because the eternal truth of Jesus Christ is NOWHERE in these “Pagan feasts of TRADITION!”

And all the 7 feasts of the Lord outlined in Leviticus 23?

  • Passover

  • Unleavened Bread

  • Firstfruits

  • Pentecost

  • Trumpets

  • Day of Atonement

  • Tabernacles

They’re just as applicable TODAY as they were in the times of the Old AND New Testaments, so don’t be fooled! And the REASON why these 7 feasts of the Lord ARE so significant and important to the Lord is because EACH individual feast of the Lord is either FULFILLED in Jesus Christ or is a foreshadowing of the fulfillment of Jesus Christ! For example: The Feast of Tabernacles will be fully revealed/fulfilled in Jesus Christ during the time of the 1,000 year reign of Jesus Christ on the Earth (the Millennial Kingdom). Other feasts of the Lord have ALREADY been fulfilled in Jesus Christ Almighty.

Nevertheless, Jesus Christ HIMSELF still celebrated in all SEVEN of the feasts of the Lord, plus the 2 “Minor” Feasts, **EVEN** during the times recorded in the New Testament. Why? Because essentially, these 7 feasts of the Lord, including the 2 “Minor” Feasts (Chanukah and Purim), are a celebration of HIM and HIS Eternal Truth and Almighty Power and Glory! Because you have to remember is that he IS Almighty God in the Flesh! Not to mention he even MADE “spiritual appearances” throughout the Old Testament (this is what’s called a Christophany – look it up!)

Truth be told, we are NEVER told or commanded in the bible to paint Easter eggs, eat Easter ham, cut down or decorate Christmas trees, dress up in costumes and ask for presents/candy, etc. And quite honestly, what DO chocolate bunnies, hard-boiled eggs, Easter bunny, Santa Claus, Cupid, presents and Halloween costumes/candy have to do with the Holy Son of God, Jesus Christ Almighty? Answer: ABSOLUTELY NOTHING! So there’s your answer, folks: our own “human Pagan traditions” are an ABOMINATION to the Lord God Almighty! Which is WHY we shouldn’t celebrate them!

Many people today blindly go through human “traditions” of “church” and “holidays” but never seem to stop to ask themselves WHY. They’re much too comfortable clinging to their own traditions, rather than clinging to the TRUE traditions of God. And believe me, UNTIL the Lord opened up my eyes, I used to be one of them!

Here, in the following article, this guy explains why we shouldn’t celebrate Christmas in further detail:

http://www.ucg.org/holidays-and-holy-days/top-10-reasons-why-i-dont-celebrate-christmas/

It’s funny how the Roman Catholic Church PAGANINZED “Christianity” and DID AWAY WITH **TRUE CHRISTIANITY** (Christianity that stays 100% true to Jesus Christ and HIS eternal truth/ways and HIS true JEWISH/BIBLICAL ROOTS of the bible!) Believe me, there is a REASON why Jesus Christ and his apostles still celebrated the 7 feasts of the Lord, that is because in the Lord’s eyes, they were REQUIRED FEASTS, not *optional*, as some modern-day Christians/Christian pastors would LOVE to have you believe!!!!!!!!!!!!

19). The book of Revelation is not literal and/or not important to Christians of today’s time.

FALSE!

The book of Revelation is actually IMPERATIVE to read, know and understand during today’s time. It is a LITERAL book of what is going to happen in the near future and also contains DIRE WARNINGS about what’s called “the mark of the beast” and all those who take it! (And trust me folks, it’s only a matter of time before they will attempt to FORCE microchip implants/some sort of marks into human beings……it will be a “new requirement” for “security purposes” in jobs, banking, etc……

And without this mark/implant, one will not be able to buy or sell……so they (the dark side) will make it a REQUIREMENT so one MUST get it in order to feed themselves and their families and do basic commerce. But I’ll tell ya right now: better to starve (if necessary and if it comes to that), rather than take the implant to feed oneself/one’s family. SERIOUSLY!)

Many people (especially in the churches) falsely believe that “Jesus Christ will understand someday if I need to get a mark/microchip implant someday in order to feed my family; he’ll forgive me”. But sadly, those poor folks are HIGHLY MISTAKEN! Because WHOEVER takes the mark or gets the implant or whatever will NOT BE FORGIVEN FOR **ALL** OF ETERNITY **AND** WILL BE THROWN INTO ETERNAL FLAMES OF TORMENT ON THE DAY OF JUDGEMENT!

So think about that for awhile. Think about that long and hard and ask yourself if it’s REALLY worth it, getting the mark for “temporarily security” in a world that’s soon going to pass away someday, when you gain ETERNAL SECURITY in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ Almighty if you’re willing to FORGO “temporarily security” by literally NOT taking the mark/implant or whatever when they (the dark side) start demanding it.

They (the dark side) will lie and try to say there’s “nothing sinister” about the mark/implant, that it’s “technologically safe” and so on and so forth but DON’T BELIEVE THEIR LIES! Cause remember: they WANT people to get this mark/implant! They know full darn well that whoever gets this mark/implant will be DAMNED FOR ETERNITY and so that’s exactly what they want! They know they themselves are damned already, so they want as many people as humanly possible to be damned right along WITH them! DON’T LISTEN TO THEM AT ANY PRICE! MARK  MY WORDS!

20). Bible prophecy, in and of itself, is not important or relevant to us, today (as Christians).

FALSE!

1/3 of the Bible itself, if not more, is DEDICATED to bible prophecy, as it’s the spirit of eternal truth/Jesus Christ Almighty, of what was, what is and what is to come. It’s actually the CENTRAL CONCLUSION of the bible. Jesus Christ is the Holy Son that was, that is, and that is to come:

I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end, the first and the last” – Revelation 22:13 [Jesus Christ, speaking to John on island of Patmos, in a vision]

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. The same was in the beginning with God. All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made” – John 1: 1-3

“And I fell at his feet to worship him. And he said unto me, See thou do it not: I am thy fellowservant, and of thy brethren that have the testimony of Jesus: worship God: for the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy” – Revelation 19:10

And not only that but bible prophecy is HOW the Lord God Almighty proves He is who he says HE is, and that the bible is what it says IT is (100% testimony of the Word of God and the Word of God IS Jesus Christ Almighty, HIMSELF!).

Not to mention that the Lord God Almighty uses bible prophecy to WARN PEOPLE, to ENLIGHTEN people and yes, sometimes to PUNISH PEOPLE/AN ENTIRE NATION, when they’ve done wrong! It is also the instrument by HOW He demonstrates to mankind that HE, and HE alone, is SUPREME and that NOTHING in the ENTIRE UNIVERSE can happen outside of his heavenly power! NOTHING!

He also uses bible prophecy as a means of spiritual/social/political decipherment so that WHEN certain things begin to come to pass, it won’t catch the Lord’s people unawares!

“And now I have told you before it come to pass, that, when it is come to pass, ye might believe” – John 14:29 [Jesus Christ, speaking to his disciples]

In other words, Jesus Christ isn’t just EXPECTING you to “take His word for it” (of all things written in the bible), He’s given you bible prophecy to PROVE that every word of the bible is true!

21. Jesus’s birth is to be commemorated/celebrated!

FALSE!

NOWHERE in the bible does it say that we should celebrate Jesus’s birth! Only that we should celebrate his death, resurrection and ascension!

YES, the angels, shepherds, wise men, were ELATED at the birth of Christ and had EVERY single reason to be, but NOWHERE in the bible are we COMMANDED to celebrate Jesus’s birth. Plus notice the bible leaves out details of HOW we’re “supposedly” supposed to celebrate Jesus’s birth. And trust me, there’s a REASONING for that, people!

On other other hand, we’re told EXACTLY how to celebrate Jesus’s death, resurrection and ascension! And that is ofcourse, by partaking in what’s called “the Lord’s supper”.

Our first biblical example is provided in Luke 22:19-20 with Jesus Christ speaking to his 12 disciples during the Last Supper: “And he took bread, and gave thanks, and brake it, and gave unto them, saying, ‘This is my body which is given for you: this do 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”.

[[“But, behold, the hand of him that betrayeth me is with me on the table. And truly the Son of man goeth, as it was determined: but woe unto that man by whom he is betrayed!” – Luke 22:21-22]]

Acts 2: 46-47:And they, continuing daily with one accord in the temple, and breaking bread from house to house, did eat their meat with gladness and singleness of heart, Praising God, and having favour with all the people. And the Lord added to the church daily such as should be saved”.

Then said he also to him that bade him, When thou makest a dinner or a supper, call not thy friends, nor thy brethren, neither thy kinsmen, nor thy rich neighbours; lest they also bid thee again, and a recompence be made thee. But when thou makest a feast, call the poor, the maimed, the lame, the blind: And thou shalt be blessed; for they cannot recompense thee: for thou shalt be recompensed at the resurrection of the just” – Luke 14: 12-14

Ye cannot drink the cup of the Lord, and the cup of devils: ye cannot be partakers of the Lord’s table, and of the table of devils” – 1 Corinthians 10:21

 “For as often as ye eat this bread, and drink this cup, ye do shew the Lord’s death till he come” – 1 Corinthians 11:26

22). “Church service”, in and of itself, is supposed to be a “Solemn Assembly”.

FALSE!

People that lived during the time of Jesus had several small “house churches” (who were all ONE CHURCH UNITED — as a whole — as they did NOT have “sects” and “denominations” back then). And each “small assembly” of believers had JOYOUS “meetings” (which were back then biblically called “love feasts”) in which they focused on the CELEBRATION of Jesus’s resurrection & consequent ascension up to heaven 40 days after the resurrection!

They invited the poor to these “feasts”. And they were elaborate meals (likely every Sabbath – SATURDAY). And they called them “love feasts” since these “feasts” were NOT ONLY meant to JOYOUSLY CELEBRATE Jesus’s triumph over death and hell, but because they were meant to illustrate Christ’s “unconditional love” towards mankind (in general) and also towards others less fortunate than them (the blind, the maimed, the poor, the sick, etc).

In other words, small “house churches” at the time of Jesus JOYOUSLY CELEBRATED HIM/his triumph over death and hell on the cross, they did NOT treat Jesus as though he were some “dead dude” in a “solemn-like funeral procession”, like alot of churches do, today!

HERE is a good place to start…………

PAGAN CHRISTIANITY

2008 Edition, Revised & Updated

We MUST Have A “Spiritual Relationship” with Jesus Christ!!!!!

“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. Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity”[Matthew 7:21-23]

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. And it came to pass, when Jesus had ended these sayings, the people were astonished at his doctrine: For he taught them as one having authority, and not as the scribes” [Matthew 7:24-29]

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 thereatbecause strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto LIFE, and FEW there be that find it[Matthew 7:13-14]

His lord said unto him, Well done, thou good and faithful servant: thou hast been faithful over a few things, I will make thee ruler over many things: enter thou into the joy of thy lord” [Matthew 25:21]

“Then shall the King say unto them on his right hand, Come, ye blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world” [Matthew 25:34]

So what can we gather from this? Well, we know that Matthew chapter 7, verses 13-14 means that ALOT of people will go to eternal destruction in the flames of fire! We also know that VERY FEW people will make it to eternal paradise with Jesus Christ someday in his new heavenly city entitled “New Jerusalem”. It will be built by God the Heavenly Father himself and his angels and descend down out of heaven onto the new Earth.

Lets go back and read Matthew 7:13-14 once more:“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: 14 because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and FEW there be that find it”.

The key words here are “narrow is the way”. That means that ALL those who follow the path of LIFE (eternal truth in Jesus Christ Almighty) will be FEW in number. Why? Because they will be seen as “narrow-minded” by many others who follow the “broad path” [that is to mean, the way of destruction]. The road to eternal destruction will have MANY people on it because it is the EASY path. For it is far more easier for every human to sin than not sin, correct?

[It takes ALOT of strength, courage and discipline to “go against the mold” and stand up for own’s Judeo-Christian beliefs in today’s “fallen world”]. And “hating Jesus Christ” today, in our current global world and “culture”, is seen as “cool/hip/popular/EVERYBODY’S-DOING-IT-SO-WHY-SHOULDN’T-WE?” type of thing.

And all the people out there who TRY to adhere to biblical principles (“homosexuality/homosexual marriage is WRONG”) are seen as “hateful” and “narrow-minded”. [Note: While I agree that homosexual marriage and homosexual behavior is 100% WRONG in the eyes of Jesus Christ and the bible, I do NOT fully agree with the *hateful* way that that particular message was/is preached by the Westboro Baptist Church: and I just had to get that out there].

However, I DO want to make the point that Satan and his demons are 100% behind homosexuality. Luciean Greaves calls gay marriage a sacrament within the Church of Satan. Plus also look at the following photos and then try to tell me that Satan’s not somehow personally involved with the homosexual behaviors/agenda of LGBT people!

   SAME SEX COUPLES MAKE OUT ON GRAVE2  SAME SEX COUPLES, BLASPHEMOUS  SAME SEX COUPLES, BLASHPHEME    

Also, un-natural perversion/sodomy is NOT LOVE, it’s PURE LUST! Don’t believe me? Examine the following photos:

GAY PRIDE  GAY PRIDE5   butch lesbiansGAY PRIDE10 GAY PRIDE8 GAY PRIDE11   LESBIAN LUST

Gay marriage and lust is like the “cancer” that’s taking over America right now (especially in the churches) and it’s ONLY gonna get worse, people! But one thing’s for sure. The Lord God Heavenly Father created marriage to be between ONE man and ONE woman…….and children were supposed to be a NATURAL BLESSING to a good, NATURAL marriage, created by and ordained by God. There is absolutely NOTHING ordained by God in today’s current “lust/sodomy” movement. Lets get real, here!

Anyways, moving on. Many of the Pagan churches out there today that call themselves “Christian” don’t teach you about the TRUE aspects of Jesus Christ Almighty! In fact, they only teach to you a VERY watered-down, even Pagan version of Him! Which is so, so heartbreaking! IF ONLY many Christians today knew the TRUE HISTORY of the “church” and of the Pagan practices running rampant in it, today! Today’s Christianity “model” is about AS FAR FROM THE BIBLE AS IT CAN GET! SERIOUSLY!!!!!!!!!! Do your research people, then you’ll know what I mean!!!!!!!

PAGAN CHRISTIANITY   PAGAN CHRISTIANITY2

But anyways, many churches today preach a “sermon” about this or that, and about how we need to have “faith”, etc. And while it’s true that we need to have faith due to Hebrews 11:6 saying “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”, it’s also true that we need to REPENT of our sins and have a TRUE spiritual relationship with Jesus Christ!

In other words, we can’t just READ the bible, we must APPLY the bible to our very lives! For example, the bible says we are to forgive someone who asks for forgiveness 70 times 7! Are you forgiving the people around you who’ve hurt you? Just like the bible ALSO says when you loan something to someone, don’t expect to get it back. Give it to the one in need FREELY. And on the Sermon on the Mount, Jesus Christ said in Matthew 5:40: “And if any man will sue thee at the law, and take away thy coat, let him have thy cloak also“.

We must also spend time with Jesus Christ every single day in prayer! This is HUGE! Because lets face it, ANY person can “go to church every week” or “quote scripture”, but that doesn’t mean they’re right with God/Jesus Christ Almighty. It only means they’re “religious”. And the truth is, Jesus Christ HATES “religion” since RELIGION, in and of itself, is based on mankind’s TRADITIONS, while the actual written bible itself, is based on God’s laws and God’s heavenly decrees and history.

Not only did he create you in your mother’s womb before you were born but he loves you! And he wants to get to know you! Each and every single one of you humans walking the Earth today! But he can’t do that if you won’t let him! That’s what he means when he says in Matthew 7:23 “And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity“.

In the above passage, he’s talking about all the people who “went through the motions” of “religion” but that never actually took the time to get to know him personally and spiritually! These folks also never took the time to get to know his history, his TRUE history in the Old AND New Testaments, COMBINED. Because remember that the New Testament is a CONTINUATION of the OLD Testament. Jesus Christ appeared in times of the Old Testament during what’s called a “Cristophany” (pre-New Testament appearance of Jesus Christ in SPIRITUAL FORM, instead of FLESHLY FORM!) He was in the Lions Den at the time of Daniel the Prophet, just like he was also the “solider” that helped Joshua overtake Jericho!

Because during the Day of Judgement, when Jesus Christ says to those poor unfortunate souls who chased after all the wrong things/people in life: And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity”, MANY of those folks are going to be “CHRISTIANS!” Yes, CHRISTIANS! And even Jesus-rejecting Jews! As well as ALL other Jesus-rejecters (be they Satanists, Wiccans, Atheists, Muslims, Hindus, Buddhists, etc.)

But HOW? WHY?, you may ask. And I’m going tell you why! These were the “Christian” folks who never bothered to do their research about the true origins of the Christian religion. Like sheep being led to the slaughter, they just followed along with “church traditions” without ever really bothering to research them and to see rather or not what the church taught was actually in the bible or not.

[They’re also the Satanic/Wiccan folks that thought they were “too good” for God/Jesus Christ or those who followed a false religion (Catholics, Mormons, Hindus, Muslims, etc.) or those Atheists that proudly and openly rejected God/Jesus Christ to try to appear “cool” and “hip” to others!] 

The VERY first clue comes near the beginning of Genesis:

“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]

And the Lord God CREATED the Sabbath and his 7 Annual Feasts/Holidays to serve as a “sign” between he and ALL his people for ALL generations! (Even NOW!)

“Moreover also I gave them my sabbaths, to be a sign between me and them, that they might know that I am the LORD that sanctify them” [Ezekial 20:12]

“Speak thou also unto the children of Israel, saying, Verily my sabbaths ye shall keep: for it is a sign between me and you throughout your generations; that ye may know that I am the LORD that doth sanctify you” [Exodus 31:13]

So WHY then does your “Christian church” worship on the 1ST DAY of the week (Sunday) and NOT the true “7th Day” of the week? Have you EVER asked yourself that?

Well, quite frankly, HERE’S WHY:

Catholic Record (September 1, 1923): The [Catholic] Church is above the Bible, and this transference of the Sabbath observance is proof of that fact”

Pope Leo XIII, Praeclara Gratulationis Publicae (The Reunion of Christendom), June 20, 1894: 
”We hold upon this earth the place of God Almighty

“Pope,” Ferraris’ Ecclesiastic Dictionary: The Pope is of so great dignity and so exalted that he is not a mere man, but as it were God, and the vicar of God

Chancellor Albert Smith for Cardinal of Baltimore Archdiocese, letter dated February 10, 1920: “If Protestants would follow the Bible, they should worship God on the Sabbath day by God, which is Saturday. In keeping the Sunday, they are following a law of the Catholic Church

Cardinal James Gibbons, The Faith of Our Fathers (Ayers Publishing, 1978): 108: “But you may read the Bible from Genesis to Revelation, and you will not find a single line authorizing the sanctification of Sunday. The Scriptures enforce the religious observance of Saturday, a day which we never sanctify

Jesus Christ is going to say to MANY, MANY people in that great and dreadful day of Judgement: And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity” [Matthew 7:23]

And the REASON he’s going to say that to many people is because they can “go to church every week on Sunday”, they can “quote scripture”, they can follow other false gods and religions but yet, MANY of them can’t tell you how Jesus Christ truly feels about tatoos, or dyed hair, or Disney shows that promote cleavage, etc. They can’t name off any prophets from the Old Testament (save for Noah, thanks to the blasphemous movie of the same name), or even seem to know that Jesus was “Jewish”.

They (9 times out of 10) don’t know and realize that the TRUE Sabbath is on SATURDAY (and if they do, they don’t care). Even among the Christian churches and several different bible translations out there today, someone once said to me of one of them: “I like the NEW King James Bible, it’s goes along with what “I” believe in!”. And this seems to be the spiritual attitude of many Christians out there in today’s world.

And well, I say this with love, but the bible is NOT like a “custom-made hamburger, that one can customize to their tastes”, it’s either all true or it isn’t, theoretically speaking, right folks? [And I submit to you today that it’s 100% beyond a doubt true and they – the Luciferian establishment – have YET to prove it wrong- and will NEVER be able to prove it wrong for all eternity and that’s WHY they’re so angry with the Lord’s people, TODAY!]

There’s NO need to “miss and match” with God’s written word in the bible because quite frankly, if one is going to do THAT, why even try to be a “Christian” AT ALL? What would be the point? Because if you take out ONE part from the bible, you’d have to take out ALL parts of it.

Christians: You can’t do away with the Old Testament or Old Testament Law since that would INVALIDATE the New Testament if you did so.

Jesus-rejecting Jews: (note: not ALL Jews reject Jesus but most do): You CAN’T take away the New Testament from God’s written word in the bible since that would INVALIDATE the Old Testament. The New Testament is a CONTINUATION of the Old Testament and the Old and New Testaments are ONE complete story/history of God Almighty and ONE complete “Testament” of him.

Which brings me to another point: The Talmud. For those of you not in the know, the Talmud is a set of “oral tradition writings/commentary” that are supposedly from the time of Moses. However, we know from the testimony of God’s written word (God’s COMPLETE written word) that the ONLY thing that God gave to Moses was the first five books of the bible (Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers, and Deuteronomy – which ofcourse includes the 10 commandments and Sabbath ordinances/7 holy annual feasts of the Lord).

So I most kindly and humbly say to Jews and Christians ALIKE: “Don’t drink the Kool-aide! DO YOUR RESEARCH!” Don’t follow traditions of man (the Talmud). Follow instead the TRUE traditions of God Almighty (the Old and New Testaments!) There’s over 330+ Messianic Prophecies from the Old Testament 100% FULFILLED beyond a doubt in Jesus Christ in the New Testament! But the Talmud won’t tell you that. The Talmud was written by those who HATE Jesus Christ and were jealous of his divinity and power!

Just like ALL modern day “Christian bible” translations were ALSO written up by people who HATE Jesus Christ Almighty and everything he stands for! Don’t believe me? Check it out!!!!

And if you’re a Jew who’s wondering if it’s okay rather or not you become a believer in Yeshua Mashiach, please read the following:

http://www.gotquestions.org/Jewish-Christian.html

But the point I’m trying to make is THIS: to both Jews and Christians ALIKE…….Jesus Christ is the ONLY way to salvation! And you’re not gonna find the truth of Salvation in today’s average “church” or “synagogue” (sorry to say).

Jeremiah 29:13 says: “And ye shall seek me, and find me, when ye shall search for me with all your heart”

How To Spot a FALSE PROPHET: Step by Step Guide [UPDATED]

With SEVERAL false prophets abound in today’s world (on Youtube, in mega-churches, on Christian radio, in Christian magazines, in Christian books, on Google webpages, in local churches, on news programs, even right here on WordPress, etc.), how can one know for sure rather or not someone is TRULY of God or not? Though this is not a COMPLETE checklist, it is a good start:

  • Do they ask for money? While not ALL ministries that ask for money are false per say, 99.5% of them ARE! So how can one tell? IF the “ministry in question” does NOT preach about repentance of SIN, Salvation in Jesus Christ ONLY, the REALITIES of hell/the lake of fire, the TRUE history of Christianity since 325AD, bible prophecy of the End Times, the TRUTH about what’s really going on in America today, the TRUTH about what the bible says about homosexuality (as in — it’s an abomination unto God), the TRUTH about the Devil’s lies, the IMPORTANCE of reading the bible (specifically, King James Version), etc., then that’s ministry’s a false ministry and should be avoided at ALL COSTS! [These are the LAST DAYS OF AMERICA, people! We don’t have TIME to be victims of false ministries! Our eternal souls are too precious!] 
  • Do they deny the Holy Trinity of God the Heavenly Father, the Holy Son Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit?
  • Do they proclaim to speak in tongues, per say?
  • Do they deny The Rapture of the church?
  • Do they live extravagantly? (Example: televangelists that live in mansions, have multiple houses, drive nice cars, etc).
  • Do they try to claim that “God wants us to be RICH” (as in, materialistically/financially rich?)
  • Do they say we no longer have to celebrate The Sabbath? (Specifically, the 7th Day Sabbath?)
  • Do they hold the Ecumenical/Pro-Catholic Church viewpoint?
  • Do they say you no longer need to read the bible?
  • Do they claim “if you send money, God will bless you ABUNDANTLY?” 
  • Do they claim it’s okay to live in fornication outside of marriage?
  • Do they say that homosexual relationships and homosexual marriages are OK in God’s eyes?
  • Do they proclaim that there’s no condemnation for sin?
  • Do they proclaim that sins can be forgiven by those other than Jesus Christ?
  • Do they profess a belief in a “Purgatory?”
  • Do they encourage a *close relationship* with the Catholic Church and its doctrines?
  • **Do they whine at you if you don’t donate money?**
  • Do they claim that God/Jesus Christ is OK with abortion?
  • Do they claim they are OK with the Womens’ Liberation Movement (thus, disregarding the bible passages that proclaim that the mother or the wife is supposed to be in charge of maintaining the house/dwelling place and children?)
  • Do they preach about the importance of forgiveness and then, in the next breath, talk about a recent grudge they have against someone?
  • *****Do they disregard bible prophecy (specifically, bible prophecy of the End Times/Revelation) and claim “it’s no longer important?***** 
  • Do they hold a viewpoint of “once saved, always saved?”
  • Do they call “bible study” OF THE DEVIL?
  • Do they claim that it’s not necessary to pray for forgiveness of sins?
  • Do they teach that EVERYONE and EVERY world religion goes to ETERNAL PARADISE?
  • Do they claim that God likes ALL music?
  • Do they claim that sex before marriage and/or living together before marriage is just fine?
  • Do they try to teach that Jesus doesn’t ever personally appear to people in person or in dreams, in today’s world?
  • Do they claim that Allah and the God of the bible are the SAME GOD (which couldn’t be further from the truth, by the way?)
  • Do they teach REPLACEMENT THEOLOGY (as in that “God is DONE with Israel?”)
  • Do they teach that it’s not necessary to help those who are less fortunate than us/in need?
  • Do they combine New Age teachings WITH Christian teachings (such as Meditation, Reading Tarot Cards/Horoscope/Walking in Labyrinths, etc.)
  • Do they teach that Jesus was not the true Son of God?
  • Do they discount the importance of confession of our sins to Jesus Christ Almighty?
  • Do they proclaim that the PAGAN holidays of Christmas, Easter and Halloween are TRUE CHRISTIAN HOLIDAYS?
  • Do they teach that Jesus and Satan were “brothers”?
  • Do they teach that it’s OK to pray to “saints” and/or “angels”?
  • Do they teach that it’s OK to have “idols” or “graven images” placed all throughout your car, work, church and/or home?
  • Do they teach that “the Old Testament NO LONGER APPLIES” and “has no significance in our lives today?”
  • Do they claim that we “NO LONGER NEED TO CELEBRATE THE LORD’S 7 ANNUAL FEASTS, OUTLINED IN LEVITICUS 23”?
  • PLUS MANY, MANY MORE!!!!!

If ANY of these “signs” appear in your “church” (rather a physical church, a TV church or an online church), or “favorite ministry” (rather it be a radio/tv/online/local ministry), don’t walk away, RRRUUUNNN! And never look back! Because if you stay “entrenched” in THAT false church or THAT false ministry, you WILL be deceived, MARK MY WORDS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

In fact, driving home from work yesterday, while listening to Bot Radio Network in my car, I heard this broadcast where the announcer was saying: “for just $76 dollars a year, you can feed 2 children 2 warm meals a day for a year. Won’t YOU donate your gift? You can even DOUBLE your gift and double the amount to feed DOUBLE the number of children! Won’t YOU give generously to the children to ensure they have 2 warm meals a day? Won’t YOU donate your gift of $950 dollars?” or something along those lines and I was just THOROUGHLY APPALLED! ;(

For……..WHAT KIND OF PERSON IN THEIR *RIGHT MIND* IS GOING TO TRY TO EMBEZZLE NINE HUNDRED AND *FIFTY* DOLLARS FROM SOMEONE?! Especially in TODAY’S ECONOMY, when there are SO many homeless people out there today [some were even once active military and/or even hold PhD’s!!!!!!] And for some old people out there (who they’re no doubt likely targeting), that’s their ENTIRE PENSION for a few months’ worth!

CLEARLY it’s a SCAM! And it NEVER ceases to amaze me just how many “programs” ASK FOR MONEY for “various reasons” (“they need a radio tower in Cuba”…….REALLY?…….”there’s starving children in _______”…..nevermind that the U.N. ALREADY sends in ton of U.S.-backed aide to these countries…….

“this ministry can’t survive without the **GENEROUS DONATIONS** (generous being a “buzz word”, here) of our listeners”….REALLY?….Never mind that the cost of radio is most likely covered by its advertisers!!!! And when I flipped through the TV a year or so ago and this Messianic Rabbi guy said at the end of the sermon: “if this ministry has blessed you, SEND MONEY”, it just made my BLOOD BOIL! 😦

And though some “evangelists” give a good message about how this world is fallen and how we need to turn to Jesus Christ and have faith in Jesus Christ in our lives, AS SOON as they start ASKING FOR MONEY, it’s almost like their “message” then becomes “deactivated”. For while they were letting the Holy Spirit speak through them DURING their “message” of sin/repentance/salvation, they allowed the Holy Spirit to LEAVE THEM as soon as they started ASKING FOR MONEY! Heck, even asking for money from people, in and of itself, shows a true LACK OF FAITH IN JESUS CHRIST ALMIGHTY! For all those who TRUST the Lord Jesus KNOW firsthand that HE and HE ALONE will provide for all their financial needs!

JESUS CHRIST ALMIGHTY IS **NOT** A CASH COW, OKAY FOLKS! Nor should he ever, ever, EVER be made out to be one by today’s Christians……for ANY REASON….I don’t care WHAT reason people try to give. It’s NON-BIBLICAL. For Jesus and his disciples NEVER charged a single coin for people to “hear their message”. They preached onto the poor, the homeless, the maimed, the sick, the blind. And they NEVER charged people money for their “services”. EVER!!!!!!!!!

Now, when people start a ministry, they can go one of either ways. They can go for non-tax exempt, for-profit organization or they can go for tax-exempt, non-profit organization that accepts donations. Sadly, NEITHER of these “ministry set-up models” are BIBLICAL and that’s just what’s so sad about the concept of “ministry” in today’s world. Plus the types of things that they’re teaching people at seminaries these days…..to focus on the “historical” or the “intellectual” aspect of Jesus Christ, instead of on the TRUE nature of Jesus Christ.!

Today’s seminaries in general teach people to preach about Jesus as if he’s a gold coin that they need to “sell” to people, instead of teaching them the necessary tools to preach about Jesus Christ in such a way that the person walks away feeling as though they learned something, feeling as though the Holy Spirit spoke to them through the sermon, feeling as though the Lord Jesus himself spoke to them personally through the sermon and then, going out and CHANGING THEIR WHOLE LIVES AND HEARTS AROUND, as a result OF that very sermon.

That’s the type of preaching that we need here in America, today and throughout the world. And MOST IMPORTANTLY, preachers need to teach about bible prophecy and how it impacts our lives today. [Although I have to admit I myself haven’t even had time to start a Bible Prophecy page yet here on this blog, as I’ve been too busy focusing on the basic things, who Jesus is, what he did, how to get saved & stay saved, etc. So please forgive me, I will start a Bible Prophecy page soon here in the near future…..]

But yet, the “wolves in sheep clothing” are EVER-SO-GOOD for “making you feel bad if you don’t donate”. Guilt trips and manipulation are common amongst these folks. 

However, nonetheless, WHEN it comes to all the wolves in sheep’s clothing, I pray in the name of the Lord that these people will have their eyes opened and that they will soon turn from their ways and turn TO or turn BACK to Jesus Christ before it’s too late & their souls are lost for eternity! I fear for these people’s souls! ;( I can’t sleep at night sometimes, worrying about what’s gonna happen to them, if they don’t repent in the name of Jesus Christ before it’s too late! IF ONLY they knew the true “hell” they were headed for, after they die! I honestly think that they think in their mind that hell isn’t real or that it’s “not going to be too bad”. IF ONLY THEY KNEW THE TRUTH! ;(

You Can’t Justify *Unrepentant Sin* & Call Yourself Christian!

There are several different “Movements” happening in the Christian Church today. And one of those Movements (next to the Ecumenical and Emergent Movements, which I’ve talked about in previous posts) is what I’ve now dubbed the “Revamping the Bible To Suit One’s Sin(s)” Movement. And it is a sad, sad day in America, indeed!

We are now living in the times when what the bible considers “evil” is considered GOOD in most peoples’ eyes and what the bible considers “good” and “moral” is now considered by many to be EVIL in today’s world. Isaiah 5:20 states: “Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!”

Today, LGBT Activists and the Homosexual Community have pretty much taken over and “hijacked” the Christian Church, the re-defining of Marriage & Family, the K-12 classroom sex ed curriculum, and pretty much every faucet of American society. And while I don’t have anything against gay people personally on a human level, I DO have a problem with them on a SPIRITUAL level when they (the LGBT Activists),  go so far as to REDEFINE the bible and what it says in order to suit THEIR sin of homosexual lust & behavior.

That would truly be no different than a “Christian” serial killer saying “I’m a serial killer AND I’m Christian, so I should be allowed to kill people and still come to church every week, get married in the church and even become a church clergy member and have bibles rewritten to say that being a Christian serial killer is OK!”. It just wouldn’t happen in that case and so it shouldn’t happen with any other “willful habitual sin”, either!

And sure, in that scenario, a “Christian” serial killer could even try to argue “but I can’t help the fact I’m a serial killer, I was born this way” and it still wouldn’t change the fact that being a serial killer (in society’s eyes AND in God’s eyes) is a GRAVE sin!

Yes, I will come right out and say it: homosexual physical activity is a SIN and PERVERSION and an ABOMINATION, according to the bible! And all those poor, lost souls out there who PARTAKE of homosexual activity (and/or blindly support it) are, sadly and unfortunately, under SEVERE demonic oppression (rather they realize it or not) and are headed on a path to eternal condemnation if they don’t repent of their sin of homosexual behavior (and/or of approving of homosexual behavior) before it’s too late & their souls are judged and thrown in the fire for all eternity!

We know from the bible that Satan and his demons are MASTER DECEIVERS. They can take what’s WRONG (sin/lust), make it seem as though it were GOOD (healthy/normal) and then DECEIVE a homosexual person to think that that’s OKAY and/or that God APPROVES of such behaviors WHEN THAT PERSONALLY COULDN’T BE FURTHER FROM THE TRUTH! Because the truth is, God HATES sinful behaviors……ALL of them! “There is a way that seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death” Proverbs 16:25

Then again: homosexual lust/behavior is just as MUCH of a sin as lying, stealing, murdering, cheating, taking the Lord’s name in vain, bowing down to graven images, etc. So it’s not like the bible is singling out homosexual behavior as the ONLY sin in the bible. Romans 3:23 states: “For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God“. So in other words, we are ALL sinners on this planet Earth. If even just ONE person on this Earth right now tried to say they were without sin, they’d be a liar!

When Jesus Christ died on the cross, he died for forgiveness of ALL of mankind’s sins, not just SOME of them. John 3:16-17 says: “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.

However, in order to receive forgiveness for sins, one must first acknowledge their sins to Jesus Christ in prayer. Then they pray for forgiveness of their sins and REPENT of (that means, to give up and stop doing) their sins. And then they need to become baptized in the name of Jesus Christ in order to receive the gift of the Holy Spirit (the Spirit of Truth/Spiritual Discernment that will tell a person “this is of God” or “this is NOT of God”, etc.)

And most importantly, Jesus Christ LOVES YOU! He’s not willing that ANY should perish! However, Jesus Christ can’t save you and give you the gift of Salvation if you don’t let him!

Most recently, a guy has written a book in which he dances around all the passages in the bible in the Old AND New Testaments that specifically condemn homosexuality/homosexual behavior, even admits himself that Paul seems to hold a very “negative/condemning” view of homosexuality in the New Testament, and then comes back around to twist the bible and all its passages specifically condemning homosexuality to suit HIS sinful, homosexual lifestyle.

And this is VERY, very sad and unfortunate! Because using that same line of reasoning that he uses in his book to try to justify homosexuality, if it’s okay for a person to be Christian and openly homosexual, then it must also be okay to murder, steal, envy, continually take the Lord’s name in vain with no shame, worship idols and graven images, lie every chance one gets, not keep the sabbath holy, disrespect one’s father and mother, continually worship other gods, launder money, etc.

But most people would ofcourse, get up in arms and say “ofcourse those things wouldn’t be okay in God’s eyes!” Okay, fair enough. But if those things aren’t okay, then why is it okay for those who claim they are Christian to give in to homosexual lusts and desires? Hedonism is hedonism, right? And sin is sin? The bible is not like chopping up an apple or pear, where you can just chop up the pieces you want and then leave out the parts you don’t want. But anyways, in his new book, he attempts to say that the Old Testament laws condemning homosexuality no longer applies.

Well, unfortunately, that flies directly in the face of Matthew 5: 17-18 which states: “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”. And we know from reading the bible that ALL will not be COMPLETELY FULFILLED until the very end of Revelation chapter 22!

And not only that, but homosexuality is STILL condemned, even in the New Testament! It’s just that he somehow found a way to dance around them and blind his eyes to the truth and wants to encourage others to blind THEIR eyes to the truth, as well! It’s a sad, sad day in America, indeed!

When Jesus Christ came to Earth the first time, he came and offered himself as a sacrifice on the cross for forgiveness of mankind’s sins. But the book of Revelation in the New Testament talks about God’s Wrath that will be unleashed on the entire Earth, against those souls who rejected him and his holy, divine truth in the bible! Revelation 20:15 states “And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire”. Those are some pretty harsh words, there!

Sure, Jesus Christ is a God of love & forgiveness. But just like every human being on this Earth has the potential for a loving, forgiving side, they also have the potential of an angry, wrathful, revengeful side. So it is with God/Jesus Christ. There are times in the New Testament when Jesus spoke with GREAT WRATH! But you won’t see alot of preachers today talk about that certain aspect of Jesus Christ.

Today in America, you will only mostly see preachers talk about Jesus Christ’s “loving side” and in so doing, they do all the lost souls around them a SERIOUS disservice when all those poor, lost, unfortunate souls are not forewarned about the coming WRATH OF GOD that will someday be leashed out on the entire Earth! The only ones who’ll be spared from God’s wrath will be his chosen ones, those that believe in him AND adhere to his teachings and commandments in the bible, ALL of them, not just SOME of them!

But essentially what the gay author is trying to do in his book is to REDEFINE Christianity, altogether! And in a small way, I can sort’ve understand where this guy is coming from. He wants to feel loved and accepted by God. I get that. I really do. But if only he TRULY KNEW how much Jesus Christ truly loved him. Jesus Christ wants to SAVE him from a life of depravity and LUSTFUL sin but he can’t do that if the guy keeps *willfully* blinding his eyes to Jesus’s TRUE spiritual truth in the bible!

I know at times that the Lord Jesus Christ can “seem” like a God of many rules, but the REASON Jesus Christ outlawed sinful things as “sin” (in and of itself) is NOT ONLY because of what those sins do to us mentally and spiritually but also what they do to us PHYSICALLY. There is a REASON God outlawed sex and lustful relations between the same gender. Look at the high drug rate, suicide rate, all the STD diseases it causes in males (things such as AIDS, anal fistulas, etc.), and females (such as HPV, genital warts, etc.).

Then there’s the fact that they can’t naturally procreate and God made marriage between a man and a woman for that very reason. But when it all comes down to it, homosexual behavior is a thing of LUST. Since two women and two men can’t procreate and have natural sex (where procreation happens), they have to have un-natural sex and that’s explicitly why the bible calls it an “un-natural sex/perversion”.

Medical science is very, very advanced these days and they have YET to find any sort of “gay gene”. However, research has been overwhelmingly showing that 98% of the time, gay/bi men suffered some sort of abuse or trauma in their childhood, their parents got divorced at an early age, their dads weren’t around alot or at all and/or they didn’t have a very good relationship with their father and/or step-father while growing up or they’re just very, very, very insecure and think that no women truly want them.

And for women that are bi/gay, it’s usually the same thing: some sort of childhood sexual abuse trauma that they suffered, or her parents were divorced or not around when she was little or she has SEVERE insecurity with herself over her ability to attract or keep a man. Other additional research has shown that parents themselves didn’t properly display in themselves or encourage the CORRECT gender roles when their children were little, thus reinforcing the “gender confusion” feelings in their children early on.

Prior to 1973, the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual (DSM) of the American Psychiatric Association listed homosexuality as “abnormal”, more or less. And homosexuals back then wanted it to be known that it was a “choice” on their part. Now the tone has changed and homosexuals want to say they were “born that way”, nevermind that current research points more into homosexuality being more nurture (social environment) instead of nature (biology).

And then, to top it all off, you’ve got pro-homosexual education being taught to pre-pubescent teens and elementary kids in the schools (who’s hormones and social, physical, mental, spiritual development isn’t fully developed yet and whom ultimately get “tricked” into thinking: “if homosexual sex is good and wholesome, according to the public sex educators in the schools and I go out and experiment with a classmate of the same gender and it feels good, it MUST mean I’m bi/gay”, when that isn’t necessarily true!

It just means their hormones responded to stimulation, end of story. But when young people who aren’t fully developed yet experiment with classmates of the same gender and their hormones respond, they IMMEDIATELY confuse physical stimulation with love, and that’s where lifelong problems and gender confusion comes in. Lifelong gender confusion ALSO comes in when kids are raised by gay parents. Research has shown over and over again that for proper social development, a child needs a mother and a father. And to prove my point, there’s a famous Hollywood actress who’s lesbian, who, as you would guess it, was raised in a Lesbian household……hhhmmmm, lets think about that for awhile…….

And what about all the people who are now coming forward and actually ADMITTING that it was once a “choice” on their part, to live in the gay-lifestyle? Many former homosexuals have successfully gotten out of the sinful/lustful gay lifestyle, with the help of the Lord Jesus Christ. (And the LGBT Activists are trying to silence such people because quite frankly, it makes the gay movement look bad). But one thing’s for sure: the voice of the “ex-gay” is seldom heard in the media or on national television……not because they don’t exist…….but because the gay movement is trying to silence them. Here is the “VOICE” of such an individual:

http://www.screencast.com/users/mrwayyne/folders/Know%20His%20Love/media/469d442d-a7da-4129-b54d-9ae9ea376576

And what about the homosexual individuals that sexually, verbally or physically harass “straight” people? Why does the media (for the most part) hardly EVER pick up on THAT?

http://www.edgeboston.com/index.php?ch=news&sc=&sc3=&id=83435

We live in a country today where it’s perfectly fine and dandy for a homosexual person to harass a straight person and hey, “no biggie” (according to the Media and everything else). But the MOMENT a straight person harasses a homosexual, it’s like a capital murder offense times three has been committed.

Now, don’t get me wrong, I don’t condone ANY type of harassment on ANY individual in this country. But when victims of sexual harassment done by a homosexual can’t even speak up for themselves in this country and the media won’t even bring attention to it all, hardly, we’re living in some very scary times, indeed!

Most recently, it has come to my attention that a 3rd grader (who’s straight) in New York was most recently forced to perform oral sex on THREE “gay” school children at his school. THREE!

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2333961/Third-grade-boy-8-forced-perform-oral-sex-male-classmates-Harlem-school.html

Sadly, that’s just the small tip of the iceberg of some of the things that are happening in today’s country. The open homosexual has become like an endangered animal; highly protected. SO protected, in fact, that crimes such as the above link, go unnoticed and unpunished (by the media, by school administrators and even by parents, themselves!) Ofcourse, harassment happens on BOTH sides (the straight side AND the gay side) and I think it needs to stop!

But going back to the main case in point: the bible is NOT like chopping up fruit where we can decide what parts we want to adhere/follow to and what parts we don’t. Because hey, lets face it, it’s either all true or it isn’t. And I know first hand that what the bible says is true. I know Jesus Christ is real because I’ve SEEN him (during a Near-Death experience). I’ll never have to think or question about Jesus’s existence because I simply KNOW he’s real! Just like I also know the testimony of his words in the bible are real, there’s absolutely NO denying it!

But one thing is true, LGBT Activists seem to have an “agenda”and it’s actually part of a bigger, much broader movement to DESTROY the Christian Church from within, to DESTROY the concept of the Traditional Family and to DESTROY the King James Bible, bit by bit, little by little, verse by verse. Basically, they want to have the whole thing (bible, KJV) gutted.

And once they have all three of those things annihilated, they’ll go on to their next big goal: legalizing gay marriage in every single town and church across this country. And once it’s legalized everywhere, and they gain a majority in the house and senate (still a long ways off but not totally impossible the way the “hedonistic culture” of this American country is heading), the flood gates of sin will burst WIDE OPEN and any mere “thought” on anyone’s part that doesn’t glorify their sinful hedonistic lifestyle will be fully punishable to the maximum extent of the law.

And it will all branch out from there. After gay marriage is fully recognized in this country, there will be demands for commune marriages, bestiality marriages, incest marriages, pedo marriages, until finally, marriage won’t EVEN be a recognized institution anymore, in and of itself.

“Yeah right, that could NEVER happen!”, someone might think. However, there’s already evidence to the contrary.

A few years ago, a “throuple” marriage or an “incest marriage” was UNHEARD of! NOW look what’s happening in today’s country! The first FEMALE ***and*** MALE “throuple marriages” have taken place, not to mention the very first desired “incest marriage”! We live in a very SICK world today, folks! And it’s ONLY gonna get worse, people! Mark My Words!!!!!!

It seems the “flood gates of sin” have already started to burst wide open! [Matthew 7:13 says “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“.]

Dr. R. Albert Mohler has written a FREE E-book in IMMEDIATE response to Matthew Vine’s “God and the Gay Christian” book.

GOD-and-the-gay-christian-books

And in closing, I would just like to say that IF you a practicing homo/bi/transexual, you have been deceived by Satan and his demons into thinking that the gay lifestyle is “okay” when the bible says in both the Old AND New Testament that the gay lifestyle is anything BUT okay!

Jesus Christ LOVES you and he wants to set you FREE from the sins of lust and perversion! But you must call out to him in prayer and mean that prayer with all your heart, soul and might! Many former homosexuals have successfully gotten out of the gay lifestyle with the help of the Lord Jesus Christ! So don’t let the overly active LGBT Activists fool you!

And besides, when someone has to announce to the media and the world what their sexuality is, doesn’t that pretty much show that there’s something wrong, there? Like they’re trying to over-compensate for something? Like, they KNOW deep, deep down that people (AND God) don’t approve of their sinful lifestyle (and there’s a REASONING for this) and so they feel as though they have to somehow use the media to JUSTIFY it?

There’s something seriously wrong, there. Because if a person is TRULY living the way of the bible (the WHOLE bible, not just PART of the bible), they NEVER, EVER, EVER have to use the media or threat of intimidation, manipulation, etc. to justify their actions or get their point across. Reason being? They don’t need to, they already got God’s personal backing.

“Lord Jesus, please help all openly homosexual souls and those struggling with same sex thoughts to get out of the sinful gay lifestyle before it’s too late and their souls are lost for eternity, someday. Give them knowledge and wisdom, peace and healing that ONLY comes from YOU! Become their Lord & Savior and help guide them in the paths of righteousness. Allow them time to grieve (if needed) in the transition from darkness into light. Give them each a mate of the opposite gender who will love them unconditionally. Give them strength to overcome the lies of Satan and his demons. Take the “spiritual blinders” off their eyes and open their eyes to YOUR eternal truths in the bible! Help protect them against those who try to claim that being in a sinful, gay lifestyle is “okay”. Protect them as well from those who claim “committed gay relationships are okay” when your words in the bible say they are anything BUT okay. Please heal them and cleanse them. Bless them and keep them for eternity, all those willing to repent and submit their lives to you. Amen”.

Ecumenicalism: “All Paths Lead to One”

It used to be back in the day that certain denominational Christian churches (as an unwritten rule) would strive to set themselves apart from all the rest with a sort’ve “holier than thou” type attitude. The Catholics thought that they were better than the Methodists, the Methodists thought they were better than the Baptists, the Baptists thought they were better than the Lutherans and so on and so forth. It rather seemed that Satan the Devil had successfully divided the Lord’s people into many separate factions. But now, in the year 2014, those days are LONG GONE. We have now entered a new age……..an age that’s all about “tolerance”, “diversity” and “Inter-faith councils” where the subliminal message remains clear: “All Paths Lead to One”.

Quite frankly, it was the “tolerance” and “diversity” movement that sparked a resurgence in the New Age movement (thanks to things such as the Harry Potter series, and movies like Practical Magic, the 6th Sense and The Craft), which THEN went on to spark the “Ecumenical Movement”. Similar to the “Emergent Movement” (which I’ve talked about in a previous post), the Ecumenical Movement is slightly different. Unlike the “Emergent Movement” which strives to bring New Age teachings and philosophies INTO the Christian church (such as meditation, yoga, walking through labyrinths, etc.) the ECUMENICAL MOVEMENT is a movement that is striving to merge ALL Christian churches across the globe into ONE….in other words, it’s a movement to align ALL Christian churches with the Roman Catholic Church which would then create a “One World Universal Religion” with the Roman Catholic Church at its head.

Parts of the book of Daniel in the Old Testament and parts of the book of Revelation in the New Testament BOTH prophecy about a coming ONE WORLD GOVERNMENT. And this one world government will also attempt to have a ONE WORLD ECONOMY and ONE WORLD RELIGION. Essentially, the Ecumenical Movement (as well as the Emergent Movement) are BOTH trying to bring about a ONE WORLD RELIGION, where all world religions and ALL Christian denominations become ONE (one with the Catholic Church, that is……..which to me, is even FURTHER evidence that the Roman Catholic Church is likely the Whore of Babylon talked about in the book of Revelation in the New Testament).

WARNING: Rise Of The “Watered-Down” Gospel

[I say this with love to all my non-Christian as well as Christian people out there, so that your eyes may be “opened” to the truth about what IS or ISN’T the true gospel of Jesus Christ!]

Money, self, globalism, pleasure. Sound familiar? Those are the 4 major “pursuits” of today’s world.

Money, self, globalism, pleasure. Sound familiar, once more? Those are the current pursuits of many of the Christian churches today, as well (though there are STILL some good bible-believing, God-fearing churches out there).

As the TRUE church/gospel of Jesus Christ (as a whole) has gotten more and more attacked over the years, many churches of today have become more “world friendly” in response. Non-biblical doctrines such as “God wants us to be rich”, “there is no such thing as sin and/or condemnation for sin”, “all you have to do is merely believe in Jesus to be saved”, “more than Jesus is needed for salvation”, etc. run RAMPANT in today’s church.

And with many Christian churches today now living like “the world”, it is NO WONDER that there are so many lost souls out there (people who’ve strayed away from the religion, have negative viewpoints about it, or that don’t know anything about it: the TRUE gospel of Jesus Christ, that is).

But of all the “Non-biblical doctrines” out there, the ones that state “God wants you to be rich” and “there are many paths to eternal paradise and/or spiritual enlightenment” are probably the most prominent ones.

—————————————————————————–

Matthew 16:24 in the New Testament states: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.

John 14:6 records Jesus Christ as saying: “I am the way, the Truth and the Light. No-one cometh unto the Father but by Me”. In other words, Jesus Christ was/is saying in John 14:6 that he is the ONLY way to eternal paradise, the ONLY way to have forgiveness of sins, and is the ONLY way to receive the gift of the Holy Spirit/spiritual discernment (upon full baptism in his name). In other words, Jesus Christ is the “doorway” by which eternal paradise and forgiveness of sins may be found.

Matthew 7:14 (book of Matthew, chapter 7, verse 13-14) has THIS to say: “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.

—————————————————————————–

Translation? MANY people will buy into Satan’s lies (false gospels other than Jesus Christ being the son of God and ONLY way for salvation, etc.) and think that they don’t have to do anything other than “believe” in Jesus Christ to be saved and many will live their lives how THEY want to live them, instead of how GOD wants them to live them and will take the “easy way out” of life.

They will be the people who cling to money and material possessions, who value self over others, who follow man’s traditions (Sunday Sabbath, which is a FALSE Sabbath) instead of God’s traditions (the TRUE Sabbath plus the 7 required feasts of the Lord), who let their love of music/movies/videogames/entertainment/etc. overtake them…..

They will want to “mock God” because it is considered the “cool” and “in-thing” to do. They will care more what their friends/family/fellow society thinks of them rather than what God thinks of them. They will be arrogant and prideful and think they don’t have a “need” of God.

And they, in their own spiritual or deliberate blindness, will deny the divinity of Jesus Christ and deny that he is the ONLY way to salvation and eternal life. And these people will number upon the thousands and thousands, if not millions. Many of them will even come from Christian churches……churches that “proclaim” to be Christian, yet, preach a message that’s SO watered down, SO false, that it might as well be a church of the Devil.

But a very few select people (very small in number) will read and search the scriptures, believe in Jesus Christ, get baptized in his name, pray for forgiveness of their sins, repent of their sins and actually try to LIVE their lives for Jesus Christ by obeying his commandments as much as possible. These people will NOT bow down to pressure from “the world” or “today’s culture” and upon threat of death, will obey Jesus’s commandments in the bible to their last breath…..

They WON’T believe the major lie of Sunday being the Sabbath or the false teaching that the Sabbath doesn’t matter anymore, etc. They will actually read their bibles in order to have spiritual discernment from all the false teachings floating around today. And these people will face MUCH clamour and opposition. People will be telling them how “hateful” they are because they don’t accept gay marriages and the like.

People will also mock and ridicule them and tell them how “silly” and “anal” they are for wanting to celebrate the Sabbath on its TRUE time-frame (Friday sundown to Saturday sundown) instead of on “mans’ traditional Sunday”. And they will be very small in number but big on faith. And it will be their faith in and servitude to Jesus Christ that sets them apart from the rest. They are the very few that will find the narrow gate (Jesus Christ).

Then again, (and I say this with love), the only thing many people want to hear these days is all of the “good” and “flowery” messages about God. Messages such as, “God is love”, “God is forgiving” etc. They don’t want to hear about his righteous anger/condemnation towards sin and unbelievers or that Jesus Christ is the only way to salvation and eternal life!

And many Christian Churches of today only want to teach the “Feel Good” gospel; a gospel that is NON-BIBLICAL. Modern-day doctrines such as “Jesus loves you, so you don’t have to pray for forgiveness of sins”, “There’s no such thing as condemnation for sin”, “God wants you to be wealthy”, “God wants you to do what YOU want to do in life”, “One gets their salvation through works”, etc.

In the meantime, Christians overseas are losing their very LIVES for the written testimony of the true Word of God! (That should tell us something about where our church’s true *focus* should be: on the TRUE testimony of the Word of God…..not some Non-Biblical “World Friendly” interpretation of God!)

So people, don’t buy into the LIES of the world! Don’t believe that there are “many paths to eternal life or spiritual enlightenment” or that “there’s no such thing as sin”, or that “Jesus isn’t God” or that “God wants us to be wealthy, etc” or that “God doesn’t exist” and the like.

You have been forewarned! Jesus Christ has said in the last days that there would be MANY false gospels and false teachings……of churches that would only preach what their congregants were “itching to hear”……of churches who would only chase after people’s money and not people’s souls for God…….of people who would deny Jesus’s and/or Satan’s existence………of how churches/people in the last days would elevate mankind above God………..of preachers/etc. who would DENY that Jesus Christ is the ONLY way to Salvation, of churches that would DENY the concept of “sin” and the NEED for repentance!

The Churches of Today – Wicked

[I pray that ALL who teach OR follow a false gospel/doctrine/practice that is NOT true to Jesus Christ/God Almighty will have their eyes opened, repent, and come back to the Lord Jesus Christ and his TRUE doctrine, before it’s too late!]

There was most recently a user on YouTube, for example, who made a video a few months back asking what “moral behavior” was and truly seemed bothered by it and said that none of the Christians around her could give her a “true” answer as to what “moral behavior” is!

As Christians, we are supposed to shine the light of God into the world! We are supposed to speak the truth and nothing but the truth!

One last example I forgot to mention is some of the stuff in modern-day Christian bookstores. While there are some good Christ-centered books out there still, many of the shelves today are stocked with things that either talk about the creature (man/self) rather than the Creator (God), that preach false gospels such as “God wants you to be wealthy” and/or “It’s all about YOU, not God” OR that talk NOTHING about God/Jesus or the NEED for and ONLY way to Salvation through Jesus Christ & Jesus Christ, ALONE!

But what gets me the most are the BOOK COVERS! An author’s face oftentimes takes up the WHOLE ENTIRE FRONT OF THE BOOK COVER (as though the author is to be worshipped or something!) It’s truly sickening!!!!!!!!!!!! I’ve also noticed this on Christian radio programs, too. They are oftentimes glorifying the creator (man) instead of the creator!

Instead of talking about all the good works the Lord Jesus Christ has done in a certain person’s life, the discussion often becomes “read so and so’s new book. for a small price, YOU can find out what it means to be close to God”. Well, let me tell you something. Jesus Christ doesn’t charge money for us to know him. His message is free. So should it be with all others. If ANY ministry asks for money, be leary. Be REAL leary. But if a ministry gives you free material and doesn’t ask for a single dime, they are most likely a God-fearing, God-loving ministry and more than likely have the right focus (being saving men’s souls, not raiding their pocketbook!)

Consequently, the “New Age” section of any bookstore you go to these days is just overflowing with materials, when, only a few years ago, there was only a small section of “New Age” books in most bookstores. Gone are the days when people use to write off as nonsense the New Age movement. Now, it’s become the order of the day. It’s now become to the point where, if you’re not pro-liberal, pro-gay marriage, pro-New Age philosophy, then you’re just too narrow-minded in today’s world, etc.

But this is NOT coincidence! For these very “things” were all prophesied in the bible long, long ago (before and even during the time of Jesus):

—————————————————————————–

For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables” [2 Timothy 4: 3-4]

But evil men and seducers shall wax worse and worse, deceiving, and being deceived.” [2 Timothy 3:13]

Yea, and all that will live godly in Christ Jesus shall suffer persecution” [2 Timothy 3:12]

Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition; Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God” [2 Thessalonians 2:3-4]

AND REMEMBER: THERE IS ONE WAY AND ***ONLY*** ONE WAY TO ETERNAL LIFE AND TO OBTAIN SALVATION/FORGIVENESS OF SINS AND THAT IS FROM JESUS CHRIST AND JESUS CHRIST, ALONE!!!!!

“I AM THE WAY, THE TRUTH AND THE LIGHT. NO-ONE COMETH UNTO THE FATHER BUT BY ME” [JOHN 14:6]

“NOR 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]

“HE WHO BELIEVES AND IS BAPTIZED WILL BE SAVED BUT HE THAT BELIEVETH NOT SHALL BE DAMNED” [MARK 16:16]
