Subtle Mocking of Jesus/Bible (Sometimes Blatant) IN PLAIN SITE!

We’re all aware of cases where the mocking of Jesus/the bible is BLATANT and in your face (the TV show “Black Jesus”, the open mocking of Jesus/the bible at gay pride rallies, etc.) But what about the cases that are NOT so clear cut? And most of it’s SO subtle, you don’t even hardly notice it, at first. And if/when you DO notice it, you’re not totally sure what to think of it (if anything) at first. That’s how the Devil rolls, folks….. Lets examine some of those examples in closer detail…..   

1). When movies and TV shows are given BIBLICAL NAMES but have NOTHING to do with true, BIBLICAL CHARACTERS/THE BIBLE! (And in the last few years, I’ve been noticing more and more of this “trend” – these few listed are just the TIP of the iceberg! There’s many, many more! But for the sake of time & space, I’ll just limit it to these few so you get a good idea): 

  • ALPHA and OMEGA: Journey to Bear KINGDOM” (ONLY JESUS‘S ALPHA & OMEGA!)
  • ARMAGEDDON” (so-called “alien invasion” that has NOTHING to do with the bible!)
  • THE GOSPEL of US” (has absolutely NOTHING to do with the bible or biblical topics)
  • “RE-ALIVE” (A movie line in the movie blasphemously states: “LAZARUS, COME FORTH!”, not to mention that the name “Re-alive” might possibly be mocking the concept of “being spiritually born again, in CHRIST”)
  • “DAY OF RECKONING” (flies in opposition to Isaiah 2:12, which talks about the Lord’s ETERNAL JUDGMENT)
  • “LIFE” (pushes the “intelligent life on Mars” theory…….UNBIBLICAL!!!!)

And folks, that’s just the movies that technically DON’T have any sort of “biblical bent” to them. What about the ones that DO? 

  • I AM GABRIEL: ALL THINGS MADE NEW” (ABSOLUTELY BLASPHEMOUS MOVIE! Only JESUS can “make all things news”, only JESUS became human flesh in the form of a newborn child and only JESUS is to be bowed down to, NOT ANGELS!)
  • 200 Degrees” (This movie MOCKS Old Testament Prophet Daniel’s THREE Friends that were placed in the Fiery Furnace of Nebuchadnezzar!) 
  • The Shack” (Jesus is NOT a “woman”, nor does Jesus preach a “watered-down gospel of Salvation! ABSOLUTELY BLASPHEMOUS!)
  • THE RESURRECTION OF GAVIN STONE” [Yes, it’s a “Christian comedy” but the NAME of the movie should’ve been called something else! Because not only does the NAME actually MOCK the resurrection of Christ but ALSO of Lazarus!]
  • Noah” (The BIBLICAL NOAH was NOT a “homicidal maniac”, etc.etc.) 
  • The Bible TV Series” (UNBIBLICAL! Why? Because in the TV series, Drops of Water Got Inside Noah’s Ark, etc. and we KNOW that not a SINGLE drop of water got inside the Ark due to God’s SPECIFIC instructions to Noah about how to paint the entire outside of the boat’s surface with a special tar/pitch SO THAT no water would get in it!)  

But what’s WORSE about this whole situation is people DEFENDING these movies (both so-called biblically-bent, yet UNBIBLICAL movies), as well as the ones that are NOT biblically-bent but take on biblical-sounding names/titles:

https://relevantmagazine.com/culture/film/why-are-so-many-christians-afraid-hollywood-bible-movies

And again, think about the magazine name ITSELF: “Relevant”. That’s exactly what alot of these movies and TV shows are attempting to do: stay “relevant”. However, the word “relevant” is the EXACT OPPOSITE of how Jesus would have us live!

In today’s world, TRUE, BIBLICAL CHRISTIANITY is seen as IRRELEVANT by today’s wider, secular culture! And so when we Christians/Messianic Jews (as a whole) try to make biblical Christianity stay “Relevant”, we in turn WATER DOWN THE GOSPEL, WHICH THEN MAKES IT SEEM POWERLESS AND “IRRELEVANT” TO THOSE WHO ARE *UNSAVED*…..THUS the VERY REASON that MAKES the gospel seem “truly irrelevant” to today’s Unsaved Culture, at large! 

2). It doesn’t JUST extend to movies and TV shows. It goes much, much deeper than that. It can ALSO include music and advertising. Lets us examine a couple of examples:

Yeezus blaphemy

Kanye West’s album cover for Yeezus

20171028_181246

A random ad that seems to mock Old Testament David

SPIRIT IN THE SKY, JESUS MOCKING

“I’m not a sinner, I’ve never sinned”

JOEL OSTEEN

Note: It’s not the great “I AM” in the bible that he’s talking about but more about “self-empowerment”. Also….the word “rise?”

In the Kanye West example up above, it’s VERY, very blatant mocking of the bible (atleast in MY opinion). But in the 2nd-4th illustrated examples (as well as the non-biblical movies with biblical names), it’s far more subtle.

I even found MYSELF asking the questions on illustration #2: “Are they knowingly mocking David & Goliath OPENLY? Are they trying to USE the example of David & Goliath for their own financial gain? Are they trying to gain more “seemingly Christian” clients, figuring the Christian clients would be easier to bamboozle? Or are they “subtle Christians” who are using their advertising to try to get people INTERESTED in the stories of the bible?” 

Though it might possibly be the 4th scenario, I’m willing to bet it’s either scenario 1, 2 or 3 (especially in today’s fallen world). My VERY first question was, “Is that MOCKING?” I wasn’t totally sure and I admit that to my shame! And the SAME types of questions popped into my mind when I very first saw the BIBLICAL NAMES/TITLES of movies that had NOTHING to do with the bible/biblical characters! I didn’t have my “biblical thinking cap” on at first……In fact, many Christians today don’t…….at first, anyways! 

Illustrations 3 and 4 are ALSO confusing. Illustration 3 makes it seem like: “oh, that’s okay, he’s just glorifying God the Heavenly Father and his son, Jesus Christ!” But when one examines the LYRICS to the song: “I’m not a sinner, I’ve never sinned”, it becomes all the more apparent that this is NOT a true Jesus-glorifying song but rather a song that seems to come with a “different gospel”. 

Illustration 4 makes it “seem” at first like Mr. Osteen is glorifying the GREAT “I AM THAT I AM”. But instead, it’s more of a NEW AGE book where he tells his readers the following: 

osteen quote

But what the Holy Spirit communicated to me the other day has now become GLARINGLY CLEAR: 

“ALL FORM OF *MOCKING* IS MOCKING……….EVEN WHEN AND *ESPECIALLY* WHEN IT’S *SUBTLE!* AND FURTHERMORE AND EVEN MORE IMPORTANTLY SO…….ANY FORM OF MOCKING, SPECIFICALLY SUBTLE MOCKING IS NOTHING SHORT OF *HIGH SPIRITUAL WARFARE!*” 

Whoa! Those words just blew me away! Are those fateful words hinting that Jesus is EVEN MORE angry at *subtle mocking* than he is BLATANT MOCKING? One can only guess. But the message is CLEAR: Whenever we come across subtle (or even blatant, for that matter) mocking, we can know for 100% sure that YES, it IS mocking and that YES, Satan is trying VERY, VERY HARD to use that subtle mocking against us

On one of the above blasphemous movies (actually on nearly ALL of them), nearly ALL the user reviews are POSITIVE and I’ve hardly seen ANY negative user reviews, calling out the movie and movie producers for making a BLASPHEMOUS MOVIE! That’s scary! Because if people so-called find “hope” in a “false gospel”, then their spiritual hope is also a false hope, INDEED!

So just remember: if you see, hear or come across something and you’re subtly asking yourselves: “is THAT mocking?” (of Jesus/the bible), then it most certainly likely IS! 

“Jesus, I pray that all souls who read this will be enlightened by this and will now better recognize subtle mocking and will IMMEDIATELY rebuke that subtle mocking (within their minds, hearts & spirits) in your great, heavenly name! I also pray that you will stir their hearts, minds, bodies and spirits towards YOU, O Lord, and that you will give them a RENEWED heart & strength & BOLDNESS in you, so that they will NOT be afraid to SPEAK OUT against such *subtle mocking*, even if they are the VERY FIRST person (in their family, workplace, community) to speak out against the subtle mocking they see on those movies/tv shows review sites! And furthermore, whenever they DO speak out against the subtle mocking, use THEIR words to help enlighten and open up the spiritual eyes of others. Amen”. 

The “Black Hebrew Movement”: Satan’s Deception

There’s a very dangerous movement going on around today that I will dub “The Black Hebrew Movement”. Basically, the “theology” of this movement believes that ALL Black and Native American people are the TRUE Israelites and that all OTHER people (especially “white people”), are “cursed” and can not be “redeemed” at all by God. But we KNOW from the bible that these claims are NOT TRUE! Let us examine……

Galatians 3:28 in the New Testament CLEARLY STATES the following: “There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female: for ye are ALL ONE in Christ Jesus”. 

Translation? Jesus Christ/Yeshua is NOT a “respecter of races”. Race MATTERS NOT to Jesus/Yeshua. However, what DOES matter to him, according to the bible, is what’s inside the HEART of a person:

1 John 3: 15 states: “Whosoever hateth his brother is a murderer: and ye know that no murderer hath eternal life abiding in him

“Ye have heard that it was said by them of old time, Thou shalt not commit adultery: But I say unto you, That whosoever looketh on a woman to lust after her hath committed adultery with her already in his heart” – Matthew 5:27-28

Translation? Whoever HATES someone (for ANY REASON) has committed murder of that person in their HEART and whomever looks after a woman to lust after her has ALSO committed sin IN THEIR HEART. Jesus HIMSELF has said so. That settles it. 

But…..biblical passages aside, let us think about this RATIONALLY……If ONLY Black/Native American people could be saved by Jesus (according to the “Black Hebrews”), why did Jesus die on the cross for ALL of mankind? And if RACE were the ONLY factor that could get a person “saved” in the name of Jesus, why does Galatians say that we (believers in Jesus) are ALL ONE in the name of Jesus?

They claim the bible has been “diluted”. But ya know what, folks? EVERY false religion and false religious “fringe group” out there makes that claim! Because that’s the only way they can get “followers”. But ya know what? In CREATING these false religions and false fringe groups, they are essentially CALLING JESUS CHRIST A LIAR! I would sure hate to be THEM on Jesus’s Day of Judgement!!!!!!!!

He’ll ask them directly to their faces why they believed the way they did:

“But I say unto you, That every idle word that men shall speak, they shall give account thereof in the day of judgment” –Matthew 12:36

And just WHAT will that person SAY in response? “The white man is the devil?” 

Jesus said in Matthew 7:21-23: “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

In other words, they think the “white man” is the devil but ON the Day of Judgement, they will discover that it was their OWN THINKING that CAME FROM the Devil HIMSELF! And by then, it will be too late for them, for THEY will BECOME the “cursed ones” sent to the Rev. 20:15 lake of fire. But……those of them that are wise enough to REPENT long before then, only THEY will be spared from the lake of fire/God’s Wrath. 

The Black Hebrew Movement? They have ALL been deceived by Satan and his demons. And most of them don’t even know it or realize it. Deception is POWERFUL. If a person is not TRULY grounded in the Word of God, they are EASILY deceived. Now…….to be fair……..have Black men been traditionally enslaved and taken advantage of by white people in the past? Yes, they have. And do they want some sort of “validation”? Sure. And I get that, to a certain degree, I really do. But that’s NO REASON to take the bible, twist it around to suit their own personal/political agenda, and then use that “agenda” to “hate the white man”. You can’t defeat hate WITH hate, it doesn’t work that way, and even Jesus himself said so!

Therefore, it would be MY prayer that these Black Hebrew Movement folks will WAKE UP before it’s too late and also that they’ll SOON realize that Jesus Christ is NOT a “respecter of race/persons”. For ANY soul (regardless of color) that loves and obeys Yeshua/Jesus Christ with all their heart, soul and mind qualifies to dwell with Christ FOR ETERNITY, someday.  

Even the book of Revelation ITSELF [Rev. 7: 9-17] states that people of MANY RACES **will** be dwelling with Christ for ETERNITY, someday:

After this I beheld, and, lo, a great multitude, which no man could number, of all nations, and kindreds, and people, and tongues, stood before the throne, and before the Lamb, clothed with white robes, and palms in their hands; And cried with a loud voice, saying, ‘Salvation to our God which sitteth upon the throne, and unto the Lamb’. And all the angels stood round about the throne, and about the elders and the four beasts, and fell before the throne on their faces, and worshiped God, Saying, ‘Amen: Blessing, and glory, and wisdom, and thanksgiving, and honour, and power, and might, be unto our God for ever and ever. Amen’. 

And one of the elders answered, saying unto me, What are these which are arrayed in white robes? and whence came they? And I said unto him, Sir, thou knowest. And he said to me, These are they which came out of great tribulation, and have washed their robes, and made them white in the blood of the Lamb. Therefore are they before the throne of God, and serve him day and night in his temple: and he that sitteth on the throne shall dwell among them. They shall hunger no more, neither thirst any more; neither shall the sun light on them, nor any heat. For the Lamb which is in the midst of the throne shall feed them, and shall lead them unto living fountains of waters: and God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes“.

 

 

THE PROSPERITY GOSPEL: PREYING UPON THE WEAK!

MANY a televangelist in today’s world begs for $$$$$! And I’ve always wondered WHY! Churches are “tax-exempt”. So WHY then do they need people’s money? Is it REALLY necessary? What’s more, all of that donation money is TAX FREE!

Rather or not this guy in the video down below is an actual atheist or not is besides the point! He’s actually done an extremely good “expose” on some of today’s most prominent “prosperity preachers”.

WARNING: there might be a few bare hints of bleeped out cuss words here and there in his “broadcast”, but his overall message is solid! Today’s prosperity preachers are PREYING upon the weak and feeble-minded!

But then again, don’t nearly ALL modern-day “Christian churches” more or less do that? Ask for DONATIONS upon DONATIONS upon DONATIONS from the weak and feeble-minded?

Many of today’s preachers have the spirit of “Leviathan” on them……..asking for $$$$$$$ and donations for ANY reason or for NO reason, professing to “speak in tongues” (which is a bunch of demonic *mumbo-jumbo*), preaching the “prosperity gospel” that “if you send money, God will bless you”, etc.,etc.

And when even a so-called ATHEIST has to come out against these people, you KNOW they’re really, really bad and corrupt! For if they weren’t corrupt at all, the so-called atheists and non-believers wouldn’t have a leg to stand on!

I’m just so SICKENED of all the LIES and CORRUPTION I see in the modern-day “Church” today (as a whole!) People are just SO lost! “Churches” themselves and those that run them (as a whole) are just SO LOST! And Jesus Christ/Almighty Yeshua is ANGRY!

They (as a whole) have DENIED HIS ALMIGHTY NAME! They (in tune with 2 Timothy 3:5 in the New Testament) are described by Almighty Yeshua/Jesus Christ as “Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away“. In other words, Jesus Christ tells us to TURN AWAY FROM SUCH PEOPLE!

Today’s “church” (as a whole), as I’ve stated time and time and time again, does NOT worship the TRUE Jesus Christ of the bible but instead, worships a false, profane PAGANIZED version of him! And it’s really no wonder since many of today’s preachers (as a whole) want your $$$, $$$$ and more $$$$$! Like I said, they have the spirit of “Leviathan” on them!

For we MUST remember that the gospel of Jesus Christ is FREE! So why then do they need to “charge” for it? (Jesus Christ & his disciples never charged a SINGLE PENNY!) So why then do THEY need YOUR hard-earned work money, more than a poor, homeless guy sitting on a street corner with nothing to eat, for example? ASK YOURSELVES THAT, FOLKS! REALLY TRULY THINK ABOUT THAT ONE FOR AWHILE!

Jesus Christ told us in the New Testament to give to those in need. Well folks, I’m sorry but today’s preachers (as as a whole) are filthy RICH! They are NOT “in need”. True, many of them profess to use that money to “help others overseas” and to “help orphaned children in Africa” or this or that or what have you.

And while these are all good things and we SHOULD help people in need all over the world, why does it forever seem like none of these “mega-pastors” EVER truly help anyone in need (especially homeless or starving children) here in AMERICA? ASK YOURSELVES THAT, FOLKS!

They want you to put money in their “coffers”, and yet, they completely IGNORE the fact that there’s thousands of starving/hungry children HERE IN AMERICA whose parents aren’t able to find or keep a job, or that has a job that pays WAY too little, etc.

And also: just where does all that money REALLY go, folks? Have you ever truly thought about that? Have you ever actually physically SEEN the “orphanage” that said preacher claims to want to raise money for? Have you ever actually SEEN images of the improved conditions of orphaned children in Africa, or even OF the individual “orphaned children” in Africa, for example? Have you ever actually SEEN a full, true, TRANSPARENT disclosure of a mega church’s “finances”? My guess is no.

On the other hand, have you ever noticed that most mega-pastors today have “high-tech expensive gadgets”, drive nice cars, live in NICE HOMES? Many unknowing people say, “they preach the Word of God all day, they DESERVE to live in a nice home and make lots of money”. REALLY? I wasn’t aware that Jesus Christ, according to THEM, was the God of Wealth & Money! However, we DO know that many “famous people” have sold their souls to THE DEVIL for money! So is SATAN the god of money, then? YOU be the judge!  

On the other hand, look at all the hard-working ministries out there that NEVER ask for a SINGLE DIME from people (like, this one for instance!). If they never ask for a single dime from people, then by deductive reasoning, that must mean that they’re paying with their own money for any “materials” for their ministry. 

In fact, I once had a person ask me if I accepted donations and I said in response “no, I don’t, for the gospel of Jesus Christ is FREE”. Therefore, I REALLY, truly hope that person took that statement of mine, applied it to their life, and FLEED from all “money-grabbing pastors” that only want their $$$$$$$ and nothing more!

Have you ever ONCE known a disciple of Jesus to say to one of the ancient Jewish or Gentile people, “Give me $2 and I’ll cure you?” OFCOURSE NOT!

Folks, here’s the brutal reality. What do “mega-ministries” need money for? Today’s “church” (as a whole) is run like a BUSINESS! Donations, church “budgets”, church “real estate”, pastor’s salaries, etc.

If I myself can carry out a daily job IN ADDITION to the work I do here at my “mini-ministry” here on WordPress, and I don’t charge a SINGLE PENNY, then why do many “televangelic ministries” out there have to charge a kazillion dollars (metaphorically speaking) through “donations”, just to get people closer to God? I don’t get it.

I never ask for donations because I don’t need them nor want them. If the Lord wants me to start a “major project”, the Lord will somehow provide for my financial needs and I don’t need other people’s hard-earned work money to do it!!!!!!

In fact, money is the LAST thing on my mind these days! I’m FAR more concerned about all the “lost souls” out there and getting them saved (TRULY “Saved”, that is) in the name of Almighty Yeshua/Jesus Christ, THE BIBLICAL JESUS CHRIST, NOT the Pagan one taught in the churches today! [But again, there are a couple of good ministries out there that ask for donations but do so for the all the right reasons……more about that later]. 

Nothing boils my blood to anger faster than seeing “spiritually corrupt” mega-pastors or big-time ministers asking for $$$$ all the time from the “church goers”. But see, folks? That’s the problem right then and there. Church is not a place you “go to”, for you MUST remember that the “true church”, the BIBLICAL CHURCH, is consisted of the body/assembly of believers THEMSELVES!

In other words, we don’t “go to church”, for we ourselves (each and every single one of us) ARE “the church”. Do you get what I’m saying, here?

Let me put this in a different way. Sally A “attends church every week”. But she forgets God the rest of the week. She sees “the church” as a BUILDING! She passes by NUMEROUS homeless people each day or poor people holding up signs asking for food.

But all she ever does is gawk at them as she passes by and says to herself, “What a bum! They should get a job” (as though a job was easily attainable for said person!) If a homeless person directly approaches her and kindly asks for money to buy food, she’ll retort, “Get a job! Then you won’t be homeless and hungry, anymore!” and walks off, without giving the homeless person a second thought, as she elegantly whisks her purse over her shoulder and thinks about her numerous other plans and errands for the day, etc. 

But Daniel B does NOT see the church as a “building” but rather sees HIMSELF (the true believer in Christ) as “the church”. For example, he sees a homeless man on the street one day and goes into a nearby restaurant and buys the homeless man and himself a meal.

He then kindly walks up to the homeless man afterwards and says, “Hi, how are YOU today, sir? My name is Daniel and I’d like to sit down with you for awhile and also give you a free meal today, if that’s alright with you”.

And then, once the meal is given to the man, Daniel might possibly eat his own meal WITH the man and talk to him for awhile, and ask how he came to be homeless and try to figure out a solution to the man’s plight. AS he’s doing this, he’ll also at the same time preach to the man the gospel of Salvation in Jesus Christ Almighty. THAT is true evangelism, folks! THAT is the TRUE, BIBLICAL “CHURCH MODEL”…….”being” the church, instead of “going to church”.

Many people, for example, will donate their food to a food pantry but they will NEVER stop to talk to a homeless person carrying a sign IN PERSON, etc. People will oftentimes BLAME the homeless individual for their own circumstances. But they need to THINK…….how would THEY feel if THEY were in that dire situation in life and nobody ever came to THEIR rescue and did nothing but look down on THEM and ridicule THEM? How would THEY feel?

Also, it is wrong to make assumptions about people. You don’t know that homeless person carrying a sign, personally. You have NO IDEA who they are, what they’ve been through, where they’ve been or where they’re going. You don’t even know just by looking at them if they’re to blame for their own circumstances or not. There’s plenty of homeless veterans out there, for example, that can’t find jobs for instance, because people are now looking down on the military, just like they did after the war in Vietnam! (Do your research, folks!)

Plus, I kid you not, there’s even people with PhD’s who are now homeless, due to no fault of their own! And these poor people can’t even find a job at a local McDonald’s, etc. since they are OVER-QUALIFIED! And my guess is that they probably don’t qualify for food stamps either since their level of education is much too high to “qualify” for them!

So these people are TRULY stuck! (And then, after awhile, when finding no job prospects, many of these people probably feel like giving up! But it’s “the true/biblical church’s” job (the believers in Jesus Christ, THEMSELVES), to make sure they DON’T give up, folks!)

True, some homeless people might be mean and violent. Some might try to mug or rob you. But you can’t let the fear of possible reactions keep you from doing God’s Work here on this Earth! Jesus Christ has given us all a divine commission while here on this Earth and that’s to do the Will of God. “What’s the will of God?”, some might ask. Answer: It is to do the Father’s Will. “What is the Heavenly Father’s Will?”, some might ask again. It is to read, follow and DIRECTLY APPLY the written word of God to our lives!

For example, don’t just READ about what Jesus said in the Sermon on the Mount of how we are to help those in need. Actively DO just that, in your own life! In other words, don’t just BELIEVE the gospel but actually DO the gospel! 

Most of us see atleast ONE homeless person with a sign every few days. How many of those people have we stopped and helped? How many? [And believe me, this goes just as much for ME as for anyone else!] True, you can make as MANY excuses in the book as you want to, as to why you didn’t help said person(s). But know this: on the Day of Judgement, the Lord Jesus Christ is gonna judge us for EVERY thought, word, deed and action.

In fact, Matthew 25: 31-40 states:

“When the Son of man shall come in his glory, and all the holy angels with him, then shall he sit upon the throne of his glory: And before him shall be gathered all nations: and he shall separate them one from another, as a shepherd divideth his sheep from the goats: And he shall set the sheep on his right hand, but the goats on the left. 

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: For I was an hungred, and ye gave me meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me drink: I was a stranger, and ye took me in: Naked, and ye clothed me: I was sick, and ye visited me: I was in prison, and ye came unto me. 

Then shall the righteous answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hungred, and fed thee? or thirsty, and gave thee drink? When saw we thee a stranger, and took thee in? or naked, and clothed thee? Or when saw we thee sick, or in prison, and came unto thee? And the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me”. 

However, in Matthew 25: 41-46, Jesus states:

Then shall he [Jesus Christ] say also unto them on the left hand, Depart from me, ye cursed, into everlasting fire, prepared for the devil and his angels: For I was an hungred, and ye gave me no meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me no drink: I was a stranger, and ye took me not in: naked, and ye clothed me not: sick, and in prison, and ye visited me not.

Then shall they also answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hungred, or athirst, or a stranger, or naked, or sick, or in prison, and did not minister unto thee? Then shall he answer them, saying, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye did it not to one of the least of these, ye did it not to me.

And these shall go away into everlasting punishment: but the righteous into life eternal”.

Therefore, a BIG part of following the Heavenly Father’s will seems to be helping those who are less fortunate than us (namely, homeless and poor people, etc.) The people in category 1 (the Sally A category) will end up being placed among the “goats” on the Day of Judgement. But the category II people (the “Daniel B’s”) will end up being pleasantly surprised as they’re placed among the “sheep” on the Day of Judgement.

Jesus Christ also says in John 14:15 “If you love me, keep my commandments” and in John 14:21 “He that hath my commandments, and keepeth them, he it is that loveth me: and he that loveth me shall be loved of my Father, and I will love him, and will manifest myself to him”. However, Jesus Christ says in John 14:24 “He that loveth me not keepeth not my sayings: and the word which ye hear is not mine, but the Father’s which sent me”.

And Matthew 5:17-18 states: 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”.

Which, in plain English, means that the 10 commandments and Lord’s 7 Annual Feasts (Passover, Pentecost, Tabernacles, etc.) and 7th day Sabbath (Saturday) STILL apply/are REQUIRED by ALL of the Lord’s people (Jew and Gentile, alike) and that everything won’t be fulfilled UNTIL the times of Revelation, chapter 21-22! 

Therefore, I ask of you today. Are you a “Sally A” or a “Daniel B” type person? I pray that if you’re NOT a “Daniel B”, that you’ll learn to BECOME a “Daniel B” type of person……..and learn how to “BE” the church, instead of “going to church”.

But if you’ve been like a “Sally A” person most of your life, fret not! For there is still time for you to REPENT and learn to become more like a “Daniel B”! Whatever excuses you tried to use to justify your sin of not giving to homeless people in the past, or forgiving so and so for hurting you, etc., throw those excuses out the window and give them no merit, anymore! Ask the Lord Jesus to cleanse your mind, heart, body and spirit and to give you a new heart that’s after HIS own heart!

JESUS cared about the sick, the poor, the blind, the disabled, the lepers, etc. So don’t don’t WE, as a whole? JESUS cared about the homeless and those broken in spirit! So why don’t WE, as a whole?

How many of us have had a friend come to us in their emotional, financial, spiritual, etc,. time of need, and we thought in our hearts, “Blah blah blah, okay, enough already, stop talking, this is getting to be too emotionally draining for me, I can’t take it anymore!” as we sat or stood there and said over and over again, “uh huh, uh huh”, while only halfway listening to them, in response? [Ahem……Guilty, here. And the Lord convicted me of that so strongly….so let that serve as a warning to you all!] 

Just like how many of us have passed a homeless person carrying a sign or signs on the street and thought to ourselves, “get a job, you bum!” Or have gone to church our while lives, thinking that “attending church” would be enough for us to be in “good standing” with God/Jesus Christ Almighty? Probably a heck of alot more of us than we would care to admit!

Matthew 7:13-14 talks about JUST HOW HARD IT IS to get into the “sheep” category of Jesus Christ’s Judgement, someday: 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“.

In other words, obeying the will of God in heaven is a NARROW WAY. Which means VERY FEW PEOPLE WILL FOLLOW IT! Think for example, of how many “Christians” support gay ‘marriage’ and gay adoptions, today! That is an example of Christians following the BROAD PATH, the one that leads to ETERNAL DESTRUCTION!

Here, I’ve attempted to make a Youtube video that illustrates the major differences between the BROAD WAY and the NARROW WAY. And there’s so much more I wanted to add in the video but I had to pick and choose the most important pics due to time constraints. But hopefully the video will give you a more “clearer” visual picture of the meaning of the Matthew 7:13-14 passage!

And here, Paul Washer gives a sermon on what the NARROW WAY is:

But I ask of you RIGHT NOW…….before you give another $1 to ANY ministry, ask yourself if that ministry:

  1. Preaches that we HAVE no sin since “Jesus already payed for our sins”
  2. Preaches that you must “sow seed” (GIVE MONEY) in order to RECEIVE MONEY or blessings
  3. Proclaims to “speak in tongues” (which is honestly nothing more than *demonic babble*)
  4. Proclaims to “immediately heal” “ailments” in the name of Jesus through the television or computer screen, without ever having seen said person with said “ailment” IN PERSON 
  5. Is purposely non-transparent or “vague” about their finances and “budget”
  6. Preaches on SUNDAY (the FALSE Sabbath)
  7. Partakes of FALSE/PAGANIZED holidays such as Christmas, Easter, etc.
  8. Teaches that the Lord’s 7 Annual Feasts (Passover, Tabernacles, Pentecost) are “Jewish feasts, ONLY”
  9. Teaches that Jews don’t NEED to be saved in the name of Jesus Christ
  10. Teaches that the “Christian church” has replaced Israel
  11. Preaches that God WANTS you to be wealthy
  12. Etc.

If a ministry you’re “thinking” about donating to displays any of those 12 signs, don’t walk away from that ministry, FLEE!

However, if a ministry displays any of the following 12 signs, they might possibly be an “OK” ministry to donate to (provided you have the TRUE finances for it and provided the Lord and the ministry itself *humbly* LEADS you to do so):

  1. Preaches that we’re all sinners and that we need to REPENT of our sins!
  2. Preaches the “Jewishness” of Jesus
  3. Celebrates in and STRONGLY encourages people to celebrate in the TRUE, BIBLICAL HOLIDAYS (such as Passover, Tabernacles, Trumpets, etc.)
  4. Worships on the true, BIBLICAL 7th-Day Sabbath (Saturday – Friday sundown to Saturday sundown: please remember that  a Jewish “day” begins at sundown, the night before!)
  5. Does NOT preach that the modern day “church” has replaced Israel
  6. Does NOT preach that God wants you to be wealthy
  7. Preaches about the importance of actively DOING the Word of God, not just reading about it in the bible!
  8. Preaches that even JEWS themselves need to be saved in the name of Jesus Christ/Yeshua Almighty!
  9. Is totally upfront about their finances and their budget. As in, you can clearly see where all your money’s going. You can see actual physical body evidence of it being money well spent for the kingdom of God.
  10. Does NOT proclaim to speak in tongues, per say
  11. Does NOT preach that you must “send money” in order to be blessed by God!
  12. ****Talks about THE TRUTH about the times we’re living in as it pertains to bible prophecy, and THE TRUTH about the “abominable sins” of homosexuality and abortion, etc.****
  13. In other words, if you’re going to “donate” to a ministry AT ALL, atleast make sure to ONLY donate to a ministry that TELLS YOU THE TRUTH ABOUT THESE THINGS!   
  14. But a good general rule of thumb is not to “donate” to 97% of today’s “ministries”! Why? BECAUSE THE GOSPEL OF JESUS CHRIST/YESHUA ALMIGHTY IS FREE, AND WILL **ALWAYS** BE FREE!

For Jesus Christ said in John 8:38 “If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed”. And guess what? Jesus Christ never charged a SINGLE PENNY for his gospel of Salvation! So why should WE? Think about that long and hard, folks!

One end-times ministry out there I enjoy listening to is the one called “Open Your Eyes People”, led by Anita & Ignacio Fuentes. They preach AGAINST homosexuality and “politically correct”, AGAINST abortion, tell you THE TRUTH about what the bible says on many topics, while also teaching the IMPORTANCE of bible prophecy and HOW it pertains to End Times events, while also preaching the IMPORTANCE of getting right with God/Jesus Christ and STAYING right with him!

They preach about sin, being born again, REPENTING of sin, READING **and** OBEYING the bible, the TRUTH about things in the News, etc. Basically, they preach THE TRUTH about things — as a whole — and don’t give you any watered-down messages like you get in the churches today! They’re RAW and HONEST! And YES — they DO ask for donations but the money is well spent! They hold bible prophecy conferences, they send out free bibles to those who need one, they send out welcome packages to new Christians or those who’ve returned to Christ after a long hiatus!  

As for all the OTHER ministries out there that ask for money? Specifically ones like Joel Osteen, Benny Hin, Creflo Dollar, Joyce Meyer, Kenneth Copeland, Mike Murdock, Robert Tillman, etc.? These people are wolves in sheep’s clothing! They DON’T give a care about your Salvation or your walk with God! Can you EVER imagine Jesus Christ saying to people, “the love of money is the root of ALL righteousness?” OFCOURSE NOT! And when I hear over the radio things like, “we’ll send out our full entire CD set for 50% off for a donation of any amount, etc.”, I’m always silently thinking to myself, “why can’t these people just send this stuff out for free if they REALLY, truly care about all the lost souls out there so much?”

But then again, maybe it’s just my own frustration talking, there. I myself have sacrificed my OWN hard-earned work money for my “witnessing projects”, so why can’t those mega-pastor folks who ask for money all the time do the same? It honestly reminds me of beggars in the street. Beggars NEED food and money though, since they HAVE NONE. What are mega-pastors’ excuse? Ya know? Jesus’s disciples never asked for money to preach the gospel. Am I missing something, here?  

But in fact, it seems quite fitting when Jesus said in Matthew 19:24 “And again I say unto you, It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle, than for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of God” and in 2 Timothy 3:4-5 Traitors, heady, high-minded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God; Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away” and 2 Timothy 3:7 “Ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth”.

James 1:22 states: “But be ye doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving your own selves”.

Can it get ANY MORE CLEARER THAN THAT, PEOPLE? Ask yourselves that!

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! ;(

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).

2011: A Year of Epic Proportions….

What do massive lay-offs, high unemployment, soaring food/fuel prices, increasing foreclosures, rising U.S. debt, depreciation of the U.S. dollar, false prophets, fallen morals, the rising murder/suicide rate, increasing rates of natural disasters and MASSIVE RIOTS/PROTESTS IN THE MIDDLE EAST, etc. all have in common?

Answer: Bible prophecy.

If the following videos don’t s illustrate to you that we ARE in fact living in the End of Days, that can only mean one thing; that you’re not saved in the name of Jesus Christ and that you need to get saved in the name of Jesus Christ. He’s the ONLY way to salvation/forgiveness of sins, he’s the ONLY way to eternal paradise/heaven and he’s the ONLY one true God.

And these videos are ONLY the tip of the iceberg, folks! For there’s honestly not enough space here to list ALL of them…..

But if the following videos DO send shivers up the spine but you’re not officially saved in the name of Jesus Christ yet, congrats! The Holy Spirit of truth is already starting to work in you, getting you to see the “truth” and I pray that you will become saved in the name of Jesus Christ before it’s too late. There’s not much time left in the world before God’s judgment on an unbelieving mankind. Amen.

The “Anti-Bible Movement”: Modern Apostasy

2013 Update:

Back around 2008-2012 or so (and possibly beyond), there was this MAJOR movement on Youtube called “you don’t need to read your bible at all, you ONLY need to have a spiritual relationship with Jesus Christ”. And one of the founding fathers of this movement was a guy on Youtube [username: finalcall07] who had the appearance of an Old Testament prophet and really seemed to know what he was talking about in his videos.

He had some videos that speak truth in them and that encouraged people to come to Jesus Christ. And while that fact, in and of itself is good, he’d oftentimes have videos that completely went against the Word of God in the bible. He said in some of his videos that he has “no sin”, that “bible knowledge/bible reading/bible study is not necessary”, that the bible is “fallible” and not God-inspired, that Satan’s favorite is “bible study”, that we “don’t need to worry about or watch for the signs of the 2nd advent of Jesus Christ”, that God is “not found in the bible”, etc.

The “Jesus” he followed at that point in time was NOT the Jesus Christ of the bible. It was a different “Jesus”, altogether. And it took me awhile to see that. You see, I myself used to subscribe to him on Youtube. That is, until someone else pointed out his errors to me and showed me that he often teaches contrary to the bible [even though he also has many teachings that DO go with the bible, which in turn, produces mass confusion].

Now, don’t me wrong, I am not personally “judging” that guy (that will be left up to Jesus Christ himself on the Day of Judgment). I am however, warning others not to follow him or any OTHER individual for that matter (including local church pastors, Christian friends/family members, televangelists, etc.), without first personally lining up and verifying EVERY single thing they say with the written Word of God in the bible; EVERY S I N G L E THING. [For example, did you know that the fires of hell are not eternal but only a temporarily “holding cell”? Read Revelation 20:14!]

But anyways, back to the story. So I was subscribed to him over a long period of time and started listening to his Youtube teachings instead of reading the bible for myself. I figured that I was ok since this guy “really seemed to know what he was talking about”. I thought to myself “well, here’s what appears to be a true man of God, I’ll just listen to HIS teachings about the bible so I won’t have to read the bible”.

And look what happened! I myself was deceived and then started to, in turn, have many “errors” in my OWN teachings on Youtube and as a result, unintentionally deceived many of my OWN subscribers in the process…..for they’d write things underneath my videos that said “great video”, “nice video” without even noticing the errors I had made (or if they HAD noticed the errors, they just didn’t say anything).

[Update Dec 2013: I haven’t seen any of his youtube videos for a really long time and have no idea if he STILL preaches those same false messages he did back around 2008-2010 or so (and possibly beyond) or not on Youtube but I pray with all my heart that he and his followers will repent of those teachings before it is too late and their souls are lost for eternity. It gives me no pleasure to write such posts and I’m only using that as an example of a much bigger picture of the problem of false teachings floating around on Youtube. And yes, the bible DOES say that we are to make peace with our enemies but it never says anything about “silently tolerating” false teachings for we are to ALWAYS & FOREVER keep the “lost sheep” in mind!]

Not to mention that I was ALSO deceived by simply assuming that ALL Jesus movies were based DIRECTLY on the bible and never strayed from the words/events of the bible. Boy, was *I* wrong! [For example, in the bible, it says that Jesus called out the first FOUR of his 12 disciples (two by two) while walking along the sea of Galilee and in the movie “Jesus: The Greatest Story Ever Told” [starring Jeremy Sisto as Jesus],  it has the first 2 disciples coming to Jesus, instead, etc.!

[Not to mention that on the DVD movie cover and halfway through the film, it shows off Jeremy Sisto’s chest – as if to try to advertise Jesus having “sex appeal” & also contains a “letter from the Pope” in the extra features but that’ll be another post, altogether!] Now, I know some may argue “rights of the movie makers to have a little leeway” but does Jesus Christ himself EVER “ok” a little leeway when it comes to his words in the bible? NO! ABSOLUTELY NOT!

Which brings me to another point. When you see someone’s “error” (be it on a blog, Youtube, whatever), POINT IT OUT TO THAT PERSON IMMEDIATELY using patience, love and the written Word of God in the bible. And if you see, read or hear ANY false teachings on WordPress/Facebook/Youtube/etc, the bible says that we are to rebuke them (first privately: 2-3 times…….then, PUBLICALLY if they haven’t yet repented!) Though we are to do so prayerfully & with the love & guidance of the Holy Spirit. Remember that even just ONE false teaching has the power to lead MANY astray! So even ONE false teaching is one too many & must be dealt with IMMEDIATELY!

Jesus & the apostles NEVER dealt with “false teaching” in a private manner but only in a public manner! Remember that we are always & forever to have the “lost sheep” in mind as we rebuke false teachings! [Also please realize that lovingly yet FIRMLY publicly correcting false teaching is NOT the same as judging a person UNLESS you say it in a way like: “that’s a false teaching & you’re an idiot for believing/teaching it!” Many want to say that to CORRECT a false teaching is to judge a person but that’s FALSE! Like I said, correcting a false teaching only “becomes” judging someone if we correct the false teaching while insulting the person teaching/believing it. Think about it, folks!

But anyways, after a couple people pointed out some of my own “errors” to me, I IMMEDIATELY deleted all of my videos, REPENTED to the Lord and my subscribers and vowed & promised that from now on, I’d be reading the Word of God in the bible as often as I could and meditating upon it so that I’d never be deceived (or unintentionally deceive others) ever again! That’s the whole point I’m trying to make. If/when you don’t read the bible for yourself, YOU *WILL* BE DECEIVED, MARK MY WORDS!

Here’s what happens when you do NOT read the written Word of God in the bible for yourself:

1. You don’t truly know what the written word of God in the bible says or doesn’t say. Which in turn, opens you up for deception by others [especially pastors, Youtube preachers and televangelists) who “appear” to know the written Word of God in the bible. [Which, in turn, will make you fall victim to the doctrines of men, instead of the true doctrines of God/Jesus Christ Almighty!]

2. People will spiritually “walk all over you” and try to AGGRESSIVELY get you to bend to “their” way of thinking about the bible. [And because of your true lack of knowledge about the bible, such people will *succeed* in deceiving you, right and left!]

3. You will become lukewarm and lazy and won’t have the necessary spiritual armour to GROW in your faith in Jesus Christ.

4. You will not truly know what Jesus Christ expects or doesn’t expect of you.

5. You will unintentionally deceive yourself & others & become arrogant & lazy.

6. You will become part of the group of people that Jesus Christ says to someday “depart from me, ye workers of iniquity! I never knew you!”

7. Your prayer life will fall to the wayside and you’ll fall back into sin, just like that.

8. You will have no spiritual wisdom & become full of fear, having no true faith.

9. You will falsely believe that you are saved. [Note: Reading the bible in & of itself isn’t what saves you. It’s a spiritual relationship with Jesus Christ. But without knowledge of the bible, your spiritual relationship with Jesus Christ will fall by the wayside & become non-existent].

And then there’s the fact that there’s SO many different bible translations and denominations out there. “What is the deal?” you might ask. Well, oddly enough, the KJV (original King James Version) comes from one text while ALL OTHER bible versions come from another. The new versions “claim” to be translated for “better readability” but in all actuality, they change hundreds upon thousands of words (even the total “context” of many words) and even omit some words altogether. Which really makes me wonder. Revelation 22:18-19 is VERY CLEAR that we are not to add or subtract words from the bible. There are Old Testament passages that assert to that fact, as well. Not to mention the 1st century Christians copied every letter of the bible VERY, VERY CAREFULLY, so as to try to be sure that nothing was omitted or changed. But again, don’t just take MY word for it. Go to the website for yourself.

As for the reasons of many denominations? Simple. The Devil wanted people to STRAY away from the true Words of God in the bible and the ONLY way he could think of to do that was to get man to stray from the true written Word of God in the bible by clinging to TRADITIONS and teachings of man, instead of the teachings of God in the bible. Satan used the bible to destroy and divide people. That’s why there’s over 2,000 denominations today. But even the non-denominational churches aren’t exempt from false teachings. They only cling to the doctrines in the bible that THEY want to cling to, most times. In many ways, they are no different than denominational churches. But when will it all END? It will end when people crack open their bibles and START READING THEM, FRONT TO BACK. That’s when.

In closing, I would like to say that if ANYONE tries to come at you and tell you that the 10 commandments no longer apply and that Jesus Christ IS the Sabbath, RUN! FLEE from such a person and do NOT look back! Next to the damnable hearsay that “bible knowledge is not necessary”, this is one of THE MOST dangerous teachings now flying around on Youtube. This false teaching in question is like a venomous snake. Once it sinks its teeth into the soul of a person who’s turned their ears from the true word of God in the bible, it poisons their soul. And if they don’t repent & come back to Jesus Christ and his true gospel before it’s too late, they will be lost for eternity! Meaning, they will burn in the “fire that never quenches” forever & ever. Now, before you write off hell as “mythical”, check out Mary K. Baxter’s testimony of hell.

“What if I rebuke someone and they refuse my correction?” you may ask. Well, let me start off by asking you this. Have you spoken the truth of them with love, patience, humbleness & conviction? Have you backed up what you said with the written Word of God in the bible to lovingly show where they are in error? Have you prayed to the Lord Jesus Christ for the personal fate of their soul? If you answered yes to all of these questions and tried to lovingly rebuke the person 2-3 times and they still don’t listen by the 3rd time, then you will have to FLEE from such a person and their teachings and never look back….

That’s not to say that it’s not still possible for the Lord to still save the soul of the person at a future date. But at the current moment in time, if you’ve humbly, patiently and prayerfully tried to rebuke them 3 times already and they don’t listen after the 3rd time, they are headed on the path to darkness and if you defend them or keep on arguing with them, you will be headed on a path to darkness, too. For Jesus told us to lovingly rebuke someone that’s teaching false doctrine but Jesus never said that we are to “continually” argue & bicker with someone. [Trust me, sometimes the best way to get someone to see their error is to lovingly rebuke them 3 times and then back away & let the Holy Spirit take over the rest].
