Satan’s Bride: The Roman Catholic Church & The Vatican, Part 5:

The Lord’s BIBLICAL TRUTHS:

“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” – Matthew 7:21

“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?” – Matthew 7:2

“And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity” – Matthew 7:23

“Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat” – Matthew 7:13

“Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it” – Matthew 7:14

“Fear not, little flock; for it is your Father’s good pleasure to give you the kingdom” – Luke 12:32

For many years, I had often pondered the meaning of the above passages. Matthew 7:13 sounds like ALOT of people go to “eternal condemnation” after they die. So I had always wondered: “if MANY people are going to go to eternal destruction when they die, what was the point of Jesus being crucified for, then?” And it wasn’t really a question that was mocking Jesus or the sacrifice he MADE for all of mankind, it was just a question wondering WHY so many people would go to eternal destruction when they die.

And over a period of SEVERAL years, the Lord FINALLY revealed the answer to me: it wasn’t that he CHOSE to send these people to eternal condemnation but that they themselves CHOSE the path to go there over the course of their lifetimes! “But HOW, Lord?”, I’d ask. And it was over the course of SEVERAL months of study that the answer became crystal clear to me…..

Starting in the BEGINNING chapter of Genesis, we read about how the Lord created the heavens and the Earth (and consequently, all life on Earth) in 6 days and then in Genesis 2:2-2:3, we read: “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”.

So right off the bat, I’ve ALWAYS secretly wondered: “if the Lord rested on and blessed the SEVENTH day, why do practically all the churches today worship on the FIRST day of the week?” Something about that has ALWAYS felt deadly WRONG to me! So I asked a Catholic friend (about the only “Christian” friend I had at the time) why that was, and she said the Catholic Church had changed the Sabbath day from Saturday to Sunday “because Jesus was resurrected on Sunday” or something like that.

But quite frankly, something about that just didn’t sit right with me. “Who gave the church/mortal man the right to change the Sabbath day from Saturday, the 7th day of the week to Sunday, the first day of the week?” I wondered. “Afterall, I never remember reading ANYTHING in the bible where Jesus said to change the sabbath day!”

Most recently in the last year or so, the total and COMPLETE answer been revealed to me:

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

The Convert’s Catechism of Catholic Doctrine (1957): 50:

Q. Which is the Sabbath day?
A. Saturday is the Sabbath day.
Q. Why Do we observe Sunday instead of Saturday?
A. We observe Sunday instead of Saturday because the Catholic Church transferred the solemnity from Saturday to Sunday.

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

Stephen Keenan, Catholic—Doctrinal Catechism 3rd Edition: 174:

Question: Have you any other way of proving the Church has power to institute festivals of precept?

Answer: “Had she not such power, she could not have done that in which all modern religionists agree with her, she could not have substituted the observance of Sunday the 1st day of the week, for the observance of Saturday the 7th day, a change for which there is no Scriptural authority“.

Our Sunday Visitor (February 5, 1950): “Practically everything Protestants regard as essential or important they have received from the Catholic Church… The Protestant mind does not seem to realize that in accepting the Bible and observing the Sunday, in keeping Christmas and Easter, they are accepting the authority of the spokesman for the church, the Pope”

Louis Gaston Segur, Plain Talk about the Protestantism of To-Day (London: Thomas Richardson and Son, 1874): 213: “Thus the observance of Sunday by the Protestants is a homage they pay, in spite of themselves, to the authority of the (Catholic) Church”.

The Catholic Mirror (September 23, 1893):”The Catholic Church, for over one thousand years before the existence of a Protestant, by virtue of her divine mission, changed the day from Saturday to Sunday…The Adventists are the only body of Christians with the Bible as their teacher, who can find no warrant in its pages for the change of day from the seventh to the first. Hence their appellation, “Seventh-day Adventists.”

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

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

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

***Plus, many, many more “quotes” from the Catholic Church regarding the “Sabbath Change”……..

Translation? At the council of Nicea in AD 325 or so, The 7th Day Sabbath Day was CHANGED by Constantine and the Catholic Church (big surprise) from Saturday to Sun-Day (venerable worship of the Sun Day) and pretty much ALL Protestant churches later followed suit. And THIS is when “Christianity”, in and of itself, BECAME A LIE! Because NOT ONLY did the Catholic Church change the 7th day Sabbath but they PROFANED the Lord’s 7 Annual Feasts (outlined in Leviticus 23) by calling them “Jewish feasts” and “unnecessary” and thus, installing PAGAN HOLIDAYS into the church (such as Christmas, Easter, St. Valentine’s Day, Halloween, etc.) which have NO SCRIPTURAL BASIS, WHATSOEVER! 

Furthermore, at the Council of Laodecia in AD 364 or 365 I believe, those who kept the true biblical 7th day Sabbath were punished and people of those times were even ENCOURAGED TO WORK on the 7th day Sabbath (something that the bible CLEARLY PROHIBITS on that day!) So now it should become CLEARLY apparent just HOW MUCH the “Catholic Church” HATES the bible, HATES Jesus Christ and everything he represents, HATES God the Heavenly Father and HATES his heavenly laws and decrees and 7 Annual Feasts of the Lord! 

And in their very own words, they think they are HIGHER THAN GOD ALMIGHTY HIMSELF! If that doesn’t send a cold chill down your spine, I don’t know what does!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

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

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

So today, you got all these Christians who “bought the lies” of the Catholic and Protestant churches and are just going along, like sheep to the slaughter! And the sad part is, most of these folks have NO IDEA of the “hell” they’re headed for, after they die! They THINK they’re doing God service by worshiping on Sun-Day (venerable Pagan day of the Sun) rather than on the TRUE, biblical Sabbath (SATURDAY!) They THINK that Christmas and Easter are CHRISTIAN HOLIDAYS when they are actually PROFANE VERSIONS of the Lord’s TRUE FEASTS/HOLIDAYS (such as Passover and Chanukah). They THINK that the Lord NO LONGER REQUIRES us to celebrate the “Jewish feasts” when in all actually, they are not strictly “Jewish feasts” AT ALL, they are the feasts of the Lord meant to be observed by ALL his peoples, Jews and Gentiles ALIKE!

Also as well: the 7th Day Sabbath and OBSERVANCE of it is meant to be a “sign” of the covenant between the Lord and his people! Therefore, if people don’t adhere to HIS 7th Day Sabbath, which HE rested on and SANCTIFIED and SET APART AS HOLY, then they’re not truly a part of his “covenant”. And IF they continue to celebrate Christmas and Easter, KNOWING that they’re not true Christian holidays, then they will be eternally cut off from the Lord’s people someday (unless they REPENT and STOP celebrating them!)

That’s what Satan does. He PROFANES things that are SACRED to God/Jesus Christ! And then he tries to get AS MANY PEOPLE AS POSSIBLE to follow his “profane ways”…..

Lets just say that the Catholic Church is SATAN’S MASTERPIECE! THROUGH IT, he was able to not only DO AWAY WITH and PROFANE the 7th Day Sabbath, but he was able to GUT OUT the 2nd commandment “thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image……..thou shall not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them”, he was able to do away with the 4th commandment altogether (“remember the sabbath day to keep it holy”), he was able to get people to DO AWAY WITH the Lord’s holidays and install FALSE PAGAN HOLIDAYS into the church, he was able to get people to bow down to STATUES instead of to God Almighty/Jesus Christ himself, he was able to take just about EVERY biblical principle from the bible and PROFANE IT, somehow. 

But my question is THIS: HOW did the Catholic Church get away with it for SSSSOOOO LLLLOOOOONNNNNGGGG and nobody’s seemed to notice? Why is there not MASS OUTRAGE over the LIES the Catholic Church has preached for HUNDREDS OF YEARS? Why are Protestants not UP IN ARMS about how their “churches” have ADOPTED the Catholic Church’s heresays? Why are modern-day Christians not reading the bible for THEMSELVES and/or confronting their pastors and/or fellow church members OF THE TRUTH?

One passage I find PARTICULARLY interesting (in light of the Catholic Church) is the following:

“Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God” – 2 Thessalonians 2:4

Okay, now compare that passage with the following quotes and tell me the resemblance isn’t STRIKING:

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

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

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

The point I want to try to make is THIS: The Catholic Church has turned “Christianity” into a LIE! Have you ever wondered why the bible proclaims the 7th day as the Sabbath but nearly ALL churches today proclaim the 1st Day of the week as the Sabbath? Or have you ever wondered why Jesus Christ was Jewish and celebrated (along with his disciples) all the Lord’s feasts, yet, most Christians of today have never even HEARD of these 7 Annual Feasts of the Lord outlined in Leviticus 23? Or have you ever wondered why Jesus Christ was Jewish, yet today’s “Christianity” has nothing “Jewish” ABOUT it?

I will admit that it took me a LONG time to finally see the light about the Catholic Church and all its false doctrines. My Catholic friend seemed so genuine in her faith, claiming that the Lord Jesus Christ led her there to the Catholic Church. But I submit to you today (as well as her, please forgive me if you’re reading this, I say this with love) that whatever “told” her to go the Catholic Church WASN’T Jesus Christ Almighty but SATAN himself! For Jesus Christ would never, EVER, EVER tell someone to step a single FOOT inside the Catholic Church (UNLESS he wanted to “educate them” about all the FALSE DOCTRINES that Catholics believe).

Perhaps it was a “test” by the Lord to see how much of the bible she REALLY knew or not. I myself had a similar “test”. The Lord Jesus Christ once sent me into an LDS Mormon church to “test” my knowledge of the bible against THEIR spiritual dogma. One by one, they get up at the podium and say “I know this church is true”. And after hearing that over and over and over again at the Mormon church, one almost starts to believe it. Thankfully, the Lord Jesus freed me OUT of that place before it was too late and I became another “Mormon robot”, as it were. If you look real closely in a Mormon’s eyes, you can “see” their programming. Plus I honestly saw a demon spirit project out of one of the “women teachers” there, once. It’s an experience I’ll never forget, one of the most freakiest things I’ve ever seen during a “church service”.

And though we are required to “fellowship”, I sometimes wonder if the whole modern-day concept of “church” is even biblical. Back during the times of Jesus, they had what’s called “small house churches” that met on days other than Shabbat/the Sabbath and ON the Sabbath, they went to the synagogues (as far as my understanding on that goes).

Usually, the bigger a “church” becomes, the more “corrupt” it gets. And the “smaller” a church is, the LESS corrupt it is (spiritually speaking). And while that’s not ALWAYS the case, it certainly seems to be in the majority of cases that I’ve noticed over the years.

Me? I don’t go to any “church” in my area. Today’s “churches” just don’t give a hoot about Jesus Christ or his true gospel. Show me just ONE Christian church in these parts that follows the bible, front to back, and I’d be happy to go to it every week. But alas, no such churches exist in my area. It’s either the PROFANE churches (who worship on the false Sun-Day sabbath and in the FALSE Pagan “holidays”), a local mosque, or an Orthodox Jewish congregation whose blood seems to BOIL at just the mere mention of the name of Jesus Christ Almighty! So that puts me in quite a pickle, as far as trying to attending a “church” goes. 

However, I do read and study the bible quite a bit. And trust me, I’ve learned more about God/Jesus Christ from my OWN personal home study than I EVER did inside a “Christian church service”. And trust me, there’s a REASONING for that. 

But please know this: VERY FEW people will get REDEEMED and allowed to go into the new heavenly city someday. And that is because they bought into the lie of the Catholic Church and beyond. Please, I beg of you: if you’re a Catholic and/or still go the Catholic Church, GET OUT OF THE CATHOLIC CHURCH WHILE YOU STILL CAN! Your soul and your ETERNAL SALVATION depend on it! MARK MY WORDS!

 

From Christian to Messianic/Jewish roots Christian

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

BIBLICAL FEASTS FEASTS OF THE LORD

What Is The True Gospel of Jesus Christ?

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Pray the following prayer:

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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