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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Jesus said in John 15: 18-23 “If the world hate you, ye know that it hated me before it hated you. If ye were of the world, the world would love his own: but because ye are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hateth you. Remember the word that I said unto you, The servant is not greater than his lord. If they have persecuted me, they will also persecute you; if they have kept my saying, they will keep yours also. But all these things will they do unto you for my name’s sake, because they know not him that sent me. If I had not come and spoken unto them, they had not had sin: but now they have no cloak for their sin. He that hateth me hateth my Father also

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

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

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

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

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

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

 

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

If you are Catholic and you are reading this right now, I beg you from the bottom of my heart and the DEPTHS of my SOUL to please GET OUT OF THE CATHOLIC CHURCH, WHILE YOU STILL CAN! Practically 95% of Catholic doctrine goes AGAINST the bible and is leading many people’s souls on a PATH to hell/eternal condemnation! If you don’t want your soul to be sent to hell/eternal judgement someday, then please keep reading! I pray that the Lord Jesus Christ SETS YOU FREE from the “false Paganized system of Catholicism” before it’s too late! Please know that I preach THE TRUTH about the Catholic Church out of LOVE, NOT out of hate! 

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

[P.S.: There’s probably about 10 or so biblical practices that the Conservative Catholic Church follows that ARE biblical in scope, the main two BIBLICAL practices being the fight for PRO-LIFE/ANTI-ABORTION and the fight for PRO-TRADITIONAL FAMILY/MARRIAGE! On THOSE 2 counts, the Catholic Church does alot of GOOD (as a whole) standing up FOR those 2 things – traditional marriage/family and the right of EVERY unborn child to have LIFE – And sadly, many Protestant groups have, for some reason, REFUSED to stand up FOR those 2 things. So when you got one of the MOST unbiblical church groups of all standing up FOR those 10 biblical principles, ESPECIALLY the 2 biblical things I listed here, when NO OTHER “Christian” group seems to be doing so? I guess that shows just how DESPERATE Jesus Christ is to have those 10 biblical practices fought FOR – and NOT AGAINST!] 

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

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

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

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

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

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

Practically 85% of what the Catholic Church believes and practices goes AGAINST the bible! [And though there’s many more things not listed, for the sake of space and length, I’ve narrowed it down to 20 things the Catholic church practices/believes that goes AGAINST the bible!]

Lets examine the evidence.

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

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

communion wafercommunion winePRIEST HOLDING COMMUNION

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

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

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

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

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

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

“And knew her not till she brought forth her firstborn son: and he called his name Jesus” [Matthew 1: 25] (Note: “Knew her” is a polite way of saying he had SEX with her, in the bible!)

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

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

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

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

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

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

catheism-pic 

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

 

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

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

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

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

6. One is to pray the Rosary (“Hail Mary”)

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

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

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

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

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

7. One is to worship dead saints

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

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

[The sad reality is that “saints” in the Catholic church are actually “demons/demon spirits”, JESUS CHRIST is the one who lived an “ultimate” life of self-denial, JESUS CHRIST is the one who had an ultimate “final trial”, JESUS CHRIST and JESUS CHRIST ALONE is the only one the bible tells us to pray to, and JESUS CHRIST is the only one who has the power to give eternal life! Do you see what that is, folks? The Catholic Church is using her as some sort of subversion of Christ!]

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

BAPTISM BY SPRINKLING   VS.  BAPTISM BY IMMERSION

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

In the Bible, EVERYONE who has received Jesus Christ by faith is a saint!!!!!! A “saint”, by biblical definition, is a LIVING believer in Christ Jesus!!!! 

To all that be in Rome, beloved of God, called to be saints: Grace to you and peace from God our Father, and the Lord Jesus Christ” – Romans 1:7

Unto the church of God which is at Corinth, to them that are sanctified in Christ Jesus, called to be saints, with all that in every place call upon the name of Jesus Christ our Lord, both their’s and our’s: Grace be unto you, and peace, from God our Father, and from the Lord Jesus Christ” – 1 Corinthians 1: 2-3

“Paul, an apostle of Jesus Christ by the will of God, and Timothy our brother, unto the church of God which is at Corinth, with all the saints which are in all Achaia:” – 2 Corinthians 1:1

To the saints and faithful brethren in Christ which are at Colosse: Grace be unto you, and peace, from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ” – Colossians 1:2

“Paul, an apostle of Jesus Christ by the will of God, to the saints which are at Ephesus, and to the faithful in Christ Jesus” – Ephesians 1:1

“And he that searcheth the hearts knoweth what is the mind of the Spirit, because he maketh intercession for the saints according to the will of God” – Romans 8:27 [Note: “dead saints” do NOT intercede for US, but rather Jesus HIMSELF intercedes for US  (believers with faith in HIM) who ARE the “saints” of God!

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Revelation chapter 17 describes it in full detail!

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

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