WARNING: Learn from MY Mistake!!!!

Many people on here might think that I’m somehow “perfect”, that I never make mistakes in trying to live a life for Yeshua/Jesus Christ, and that I never falter. But I’m here to tell you otherwise. As per Romans 3:23, I’m an imperfect being. I DO make mistakes from time to time in my attempts to live for Yeshua/Jesus Christ.

For example: this past “Christmas”, I tried like HECK to tell my overly traditional family member that I did NOT feel like celebrating Christmas this year and why. It turned into a BIG argument and two days later, I found myself being tempted to “cave in” so as to shut up their bitching, nagging and raving about it. AND…..not having the strength to argue and leave the house, I found myself “complacently” eating Christmas Eve dinner, and then later going into the living room on Christmas Eve to sit down (with the small “blasphemous” Christmas tree in the window).

Now, one day after Christmas, the guilt, shame and TERRIBLE feeling in the pit of my stomach is just EATING ME ALIVE ON THE INSIDE! I can HARDLY stand to live with myself, folks! And I just KNOW the Lord Jesus is HIGHLY, HIGHLY disappointed in me! And believe me, that’s the most absolute GUT-WRENCHING feeling in the ENTIRE UNIVERSE!

But the POINT I wanted to make in all of this is THIS: It’s much, much, MUCH better to have friends, church members and family members upset with you for NOT celebrating Christmas than it is for JESUS CHRIST ALMIGHTY to be upset with you FOR celebrating the “blasphemous” holiday of Christmas, EVEN IF IT’S ONLY CHRISTMAS DINNER!

I can only hope and pray that the Lord Jesus will forgive me for my most sinful, grievous mistake this year! In fact, I even tried to “compromise” on Christmas this year, as in, if I ONLY celebrated Christmas Eve dinner with family and did NOT open my presents in front of the Christmas tree and did NOT truly wish to celebrate Christmas AT ALL in my HEART, that I somehow wasn’t sinning against Jesus Christ, even though in the depths of my heart and soul, I think I knew better.

Before Christmas Eve and ON Christmas Eve, I kept praying and praying that maybe the power would go out or that the tree would just “disintegrate” (branches, too) in front of everyone’s eyes (as an “easy way out” from having to celebrate Christmas), but no such luck. The Lord Jesus Christ was TESTING ME to see how strongly and boldly I’d stick to his Word.

I even made what “I” thought was a justifiable excuse: but the Lord Jesus KNOWS my heart and that I do NOT want to truly celebrate this godless holiday and feel SICKENED about it in the DEPTHS OF MY SOUL but feel forced to by my family! So if the Lord KNOWS my heart and KNOWS I hate Christmas with a PASSION in my heart, he will excuse me from its *consequences*, right?

But sadly, ANY excuse for “sin” is NO EXCUSE, folks and I honestly had to learn that the hard way this year! I can’t STAND the awful feeling eating away at me in the pit of my stomach knowing that I failed HIM, I failed the King of Kings and Lord of Lords by passively celebrating in this “godless” holiday that people call “Christmas”!

Now tell me: What do Christmas trees have to do with Jesus? Nothing, right? And if they’re NOT “idols” in peoples’ lives, why are they SO RELUCTANT to let them go?

And people actually claim that Christmas trees AREN’T worshiped? HA! 

Check out the following 3 items

Oh Christmas tree, Oh Christmas tree!

I cried for days and and days and days BEFORE Christmas, RIGHT AFTER the “festivities” on Christmas Eve and ON Christmas “Day” and beyond. I just can’t get over the shame! Why? Because I can FEEL Jesus’s angered tears at my “cowered betrayal” of Him and his command to me to NOT celebrate Christmas this year or any year after! I CAN HARDLY STAND TO LIVE WITH MYSELF NOW, FOLKS! I feel like the world’s most terrible person now, in Jesus’s eyes! And the feeling of guilt, shame and hypocrisy is just BEYOND OVERWHELMING!

I’ve barely eaten the last two days and have spent most my time laying in bed, crying. Jesus Christ has done SO, SO VERY MUCH for me in my life. So now for me to unwittingly and cowardly turn my back on him like that, just because I didn’t have the heart to keep arguing with my mom over the holiday? ;(

The Lord Jesus has taught me a VERY valuable Earth-shattering lesson here, folks! If it comes down to two things and two things ONLY, HIM or your family? You’d better pick HIM! No matter what! Your family members didn’t create you or the universe! Your family members don’t have the power of heaven and hell and death in their very hands! Your family members didn’t talk in a burning bush, send the plagues to Egypt, or calm the ROARING SEA! Your family members don’t have the power of space and time in their very hand!

True, they will laugh, they will mock, they will scoff and they WILL get mad/indifferent when you claim you no longer want to celebrate Christmas (TRUST ME ON THIS) but you can NOT let that get to you, folks! You MUST stand strong! You MUST stand firm! ESPECIALLY in 2016, when things are going to get much, much, MUCH worse than they EVER WERE in 2015, BELIEVE ME ON THIS, FOLKS! Do NOT make the same mistake of “compromise” in the upcoming year of 2016 that I unwittingly made this year in 2015! And IF you do, I pray the Lord Jesus Christ will have mercy upon your SOUL! Just as I pray he has mercy upon MY soul!

Alot of pastors and Christians do NOT like to talk about this subject but it MUST be brought to light! Just like a parent can lose patience with his/her child, Jesus can also LOSE HIS PATIENCE with US, if we’re not careful! And once we’re beyond the point of no return, once HIS wrath in OUR lives reaches its “breaking point”, there’s NO turning back! THAT is when he will predetermine that we are NOT FIT FOR THE MILLENNIAL/ETERNAL KINGDOM OF GOD [NEW JERUSALEM].

[Please remember that in the time of Noah, there was a period of SPIRITUAL PROBATION. And as soon as the “breaking point” of that “spiritual probation” CLOSED, there was NO GOING BACK! The bible says that after the door of Noah’s ark was SEALED shut, SEVEN DAYS went by BEFORE the “fountains of heaven” were opened up and it began to rain for 40 days and 40 nights!

And I’m sure that AS all the people that thought that Noah was a “silly old man” were standing there and mocking Noah and his “ark”, they had NO IDEA of the calamity that was soon to come! So it is with people who still STUBBORNLY insist on celebrating “Pagan Christian” holidays in their hearts! They think the “bible followers” are CRAZY and REFUSE to take heed!

Therefore, THEIR point of “spiritual probation” is CLOSING! Yes, CLOSING, folks! Once they get to that theoretical “spiritual point” in their lives where they are metaphorically standing outside the “Ark of God”, laughing, mocking and scoffing, it will be TOO LATE FOR THEM, AS THERE’S NO GOING BACK, AT THAT POINT IN TIME! I’m sure there were altleast a FEW people who were banging on the “Ark” at that time, begging to be let in but after God sealed it shut, it could NOT be opened by Noah and his family! And my best spiritual guess is that Noah and his family could NOT even pry the Ark’s door open for someone at that point in time, EVEN if they had wanted to!]

But the main point I want to make here (EVEN FOR MYSELF, EVEN) is that Christmas is NOT okay to “compromise” on. Easter is NOT okay to “compromise” on. NO “Paganized Christian” holiday is okay to compromise on, TRUST ME ON THIS, FOLKS! That is what the Lord Jesus Christ has taught me in HIS RIGHTEOUS ANGER!

ALL of “Christian holidays” are based on ancient Pagan “sex festivals”. Does that SHOCK YOU? It shouldn’t. Considering the world just LOVES these “holidays”.

And yet, the world (as a whole) has never even HEARD of the holidays of Passover, Tabernacles, Pentecost, Firstfruits, etc. And why is that, do you think? Answer: Because those are the ONLY holidays that truly DO celebrate Jesus Christ and Jesus Christ, ONLY! These holidays don’t share Jesus with ANY other object or “entity” (such as easter bunny, santa claus, costumes, noise makers, etc.) And the bible says that “the world” (as a whole) does NOT want ANYTHING to do with the TRUE gospel of Jesus Christ and OH HOW TRUE THAT IS IN TODAY’S HEATHEN, FALLEN, GODLESS WORLD!!!!!!!!! A world where sin ABOUNDS!

But in fact, Jesus Christ DID describe his “flock” as a L I T T L E FLOCK. Translation? VERY FEW PEOPLE will make it through the gates of the heavenly city of New Jerusalem someday. VERY FEW. Why? Lets turn to the bible for the answer:

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

“Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat: Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it – [Matthew 7: 13-14]

Translation? Many, many, MANY billions of people will go to “the lake of fire” [Revelation 20:15 in the New Testament] and only a VERY FEW SELECT FEW will to to “God’s Paradise” of the new heavenly city called “New Jerusalem” [described in Revelation 21-22]. 

Ever since the death of Jesus Christ and the original apostles, it came to be in the world (as a whole) that the TRUE “Jewish gospel” of Jesus Christ was “not popular”. Why? Because it demanded people to DENY themselves “Earthly pleasures” and to live “humble lives”.

Therefore, this “pick-up-your-cross-and-follow-me-gospel” was soon replaced by a Babylonian/Pagan “pleasures GALORE” gospel that the world (as a whole) EMBRACED! Why? Because “the world” (as a whole) HATES the biblical Jesus Christ and doesn’t want anything to do with him!

Do you REALLY think that if December 25th was Jesus’s TRUE birthday that the Earth would be celebrating it? I THINK NOT! For if December 25th was the BIBLICAL Jesus Christ’s birthday, the world (as a whole) would want NOTHING to do with that date, TRUST ME ON THIS, FOLKS!

Also: Imagine if people replaced your REAL birthday with Hitler’s birthday! And instead of giving creed and honor to YOU, people instead sung songs of praise to HITLER! And proudly displayed Nazi regalia all throughout their home! How would YOU feel? [Those that give credence to Hitler probably wouldn’t care too much but that’s besides the point!]

The point I’m trying to make is that Jesus Christ HATES IT when somebody takes a PAGAN HOLIDAY, puts HIS holy name on it, and then ADVOCATES bowing down to IDOLS (adorned Christmas trees) and SINGING SONGS TO IDOLS:

He sees you when you’re sleeping, he knows when you’re awake………..”

Oh Christmas tree, Oh Christmas Tree……..”

EVEN the “Christmas songs” ABOUT Jesus Christ are ALL BLASPHEMOUS, in and of THEMSELVES……Need more proof? Visit the following website that breaks down the lyrics bit by bit and little by little: http://www.layittoheart.com/christmas.html

The very LAST point I want to make is THIS: The “Jesus Christ” that’s worshiped on December 25th every year is NOT the Jesus Christ of the bible! Repeat: IS NOT the Jesus Christ of the bible! But instead is a FALSE, PAGAN, SATANIC type of JESUS CHRIST that the Roman Catholic Church worships as Helios, the SUN GOD and that apparently advocates lying to little children about Santa Claus! Now, tell me, would the real, true BIBLICAL Jesus Christ ever advocate lying to children? Didn’t think so! 

And Hint: Those aren’t really “halos” around Catholic figures’ heads, as they’re actually supposed to represent SUNS! Hence, Sun-Day, venerable worship day of the SUN, NOT **THE SON***! WAKE UP, FOLKS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

In 325A.D. at the Council of Nicea, with the help of Catholic bishops, Constantine took the Jewish religion, blended it with Pagan elements, and then called it “Christianity”.

In other words, Constantine turned the religion of God’s TRUE people INTO A LIE! Not to mention the Catholic Church INVENTED “Christ-Mass/Christmas” and “Ishtar/Easter” etc., as a way to CIRCUMVENT the TRUE holidays of Christ (Passover, Pentecost, Firstfruits, Trumpets, Tabernacles, etc.)

Notice how there’s only FIVE holidays in the “Christian calendar”, compared with the Lord Jesus’s SEVEN biblical holidays in the BIBLE’S CALENDAR?  

  • Christmas (based off of the Pagan Festival Saturnalia, which encouraged drunken orgies and lawlessness)

  • Easter (based off of the Pagan Festival of Ishtar, goddess of sex/fertility, whose symbols were “painted eggs” and “the rabbit”)

  • Valentine’s Day (based off the Pagan “Lustfest” called Lupercalia)

  • New Year’s (Like Christmas, based off the Pagan Festival(s) Saturnalia and Yule, which encouraged drunken orgies, etc.)

  • Halloween (based off of Samhain, which is/was more or less considered *institutionalized orgies and/or necrophilia*)

VS……….

7 REQUIRED Festivals of the Lord:

  • Passover

  • Feast Of Unleavened Bread

  • Feast Of Firstfruits

  • Pentecost

  • Feast Of Trumpets

  • Day Of Atonement

  • Feast Of Tabernacles

2 Minor (Optional?) Festivals:

  • Purim

  • Hannukah

Everything from the star on top of the tree (the “pentagram”) to Santa Claus to reindeer……there’s absolutely NOTHING biblical about December 25th! Not a SINGLE THING! You and I both have been warned! And may NONE of us (even ME, of all people) complacently, willingly or stubbornly insist on participating in this holiday EVER, EVER, EVER AGAIN, so long as we all shall live! Amen. 

But in closing, there’s ONE last very point I wanted to make: that of Revelation. In the book of Revelation, Revelation chapter 11 is talking about the two prophets of God whom will prophecy (if literal days) 1,260 days. But at the end of those days, the Beast who ascends out of the pit will overcome them and kill them. And all the godless people on the Earth will be SO HAPPY when these two prophets are killed, that they will let their bodies lay in the street of what is spiritually called Sodom and Egypt.

Revelation 11:10 states: “And they that dwell upon the earth shall rejoice over them, and make merry, and shall send gifts one to another; because these two prophets tormented them that dwelt on the earth”. Does this NOT sound like a “Christmases of ALL Christmases” to YOU?

Not to mention the movie trailer for the movie called “The Big Short” (which hints at a future failing of the U.S. economy – pretty scary stuff, folks) and the upcoming TV series called “Lucifer”, which tries to shed Satan in a GOOD LIGHT! Folks, 2016 is going to get UGLY! VERY, VERY, **VERY** SPIRITUALLY UGLY! In fact, just LOOK at these two previews! 😦 [Lucifer is NOT God’s Son, by the way! JESUS IS!] 

And it’s ONLY gonna get worse, folks!!!!! That’s why it’s SO important for you to get right with Yeshua/Jesus Christ! Repent of any sins that need repenting of! Get your lives and your finances in order! Get rid of your complacency and your fears (and believe me, that goes just as much for ME as anyone!) Read your King James Bible (even on the days and times when you don’t feel like it). Meditate on it, fixate on it, memorize, apply it to your life!

I say this not to scare you but to warn you. 2016 is going to be B A D……..Very, very B A D!!!!!!!!! SO BE PREPARED!!!!!!!!! Be on your best spiritual guard! Satan will send his hoards and hoards of demonic operatives (both demonic and human) to try to destroy any vestige of the Lord’s people that he can find! But don’t let him win, folks! Stay strong! Stay VIGILANT for the BIBLICAL Jesus Christ and his Word! Do NOT bow down to pressure from the ungodly LEFT! And no matter HOW hard things get or how hard your life is, DON’T GIVE UP, FOLKS! Have a faith that’s SO STRONG that you’d be willing to die for it, if needed! And if you DON’T have that type of faith in Jesus, then PRAY to have that type of faith in Jesus!

Don’t care if people laugh and mock at you! Because very soon, everything on this Earth will pass away and a new heaven and a new Earth will be constructed by God the heavenly father! And soon, we will ALL be before the mighty Judgement Seat of Christ! And we will be judged for every idle word! Every thought, deed and action ever done in this Earthly life! And Jesus Christ and Jesus Christ ALONE will determine who’s names get recorded in his book of Life and who’s names are NOT recorded in the book of Life (his personal record book of faithful followers). Also: Do NOT take the Mark of the Beast when it comes time to buy and sell. It’s better to starve for the Lord Jesus Christ than to live FOR the Devil, so remember that, folks! May the BIBLICAL Lord Jesus Christ be with us ALL! Amen. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

We Must Be BORN AGAIN!

Many a “Christian” can read or quote bible verses, go to “church” every week and carry the mere “label” of “Christian”, but if they don’t truly APPLY what they read in the bible to their OWN LIVES, then they’re only a “nominal Christian”, at best.

There was quite a controversy awhile back when an atheist guy pegged many of today’s “Christians” as “cafeteria Christians” in an article. But sadly, that guy is right. Many “Christians” today think they “want the lettuce without the tomato” or the “onion without no ketchup” on their “hamburger of righteousness”. In other words, they pick and choose which parts of the bible they want to adhere to and which parts they don’t.

In fact, many of today’s “Christians” don’t read the Old Testament AT ALL! They find it to be “boring”, “outdated”, “Jewish ONLY”, etc.! But what many of them don’t realize (and what many Jews themselves out there don’t realize, as well) is that the bible (Old AND New Testaments) is ONE COMPLETE TESTAMENT of Almighty God! You can’t have the Old without the New and you can’t have the New without the Old! They are SYNONYMOUS with one another!

In fact, did you know that Jesus Christ made PRE-FLESH appearances in the OLD TESTAMENT? These are known as CHRISTOPHANIES! Here are just a FEW examples of such:

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

“He answered and said, Lo, I see four men loose, walking in the midst of the fire, and they have no hurt; and the form of the fourth is like the Son of God” — [Daniel 3:25]

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

Now when Joshua was near Jericho, he looked up and saw a man standing in front of him with a drawn sword in his hand. Joshua went up to him and asked, “Are you for us or for our enemies?” “Neither,” he replied, but as commander of the army of the Lord I have now come.

Then Joshua fell face-down to the ground in reverence, and asked him, “What message does my Lord have for his servant?” The commander of the Lord’s army replied,Take off your sandals, for the place where you are standing is holy.” And Joshua did so” — [Joshua 5:13-15]

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

“And Jacob was left alone; and there wrestled a man with him until the breaking of the day. And when he saw that he prevailed not against him, he touched the hollow of his thigh; and the hollow of Jacob’s thigh was out of joint, as he wrestled with him. And he said, Let me go, for the day breaketh.

And he said, I will not let thee go, except thou bless me. And he said unto him, What is thy name? And he said, Jacob. And he said, Thy name shall be called no more Jacob, but Israel: for as a prince hast thou power with God and with men, and hast prevailed

 And Jacob called the name of the place Peniel: for I have seen God face to face, and my life is preserved” — [Genesis 32: 24-28, Genesis 32:30]

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

And that’s just THREE examples! There’s many, many more but for the sake of time and space, I must narrow it down to those three………

But the point I want to make is that is that NOT ONLY is the bible (the ENTIRE bible, front to back) a COMPLETE TESTAMENT of God/Jesus Christ Almighty but also that we must adhere to ALL of it, not just certain parts of it!

There’s many “Christians” out there today, for example, whom DON’T believe in either the FIRST book of the bible (Genesis) or the very LAST book of the bible (Revelation). And AS SOON AS you take out ONE book of the bible, you’d then have to take out ALL books of the bible, since it’s either ALL true or it isn’t, right folks?

And I submit to you today that the bible (front to back) is 100% true! I’ve actually physically SEEN Jesus Christ during a Near Death Experience! And once you’ve SEEN him during an NDE and KNOW him to be 100% real beyond all reasonable doubt, there is no UN-SEEING him!

Nicodemus was a member of the high Jewish council, back in biblical times. And he asked Jesus Christ how to be “Saved”. And here was Jesus’s response to Nicodemus’s question:

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

“Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God”[John 3:3]

Nicodemus saith unto him, How can a man be born when he is old? can he enter the second time into his mother’s womb, and be born? Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God. That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit” — [John 3: 4-6]

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

In other words, Jesus Christ is saying in that passage that we MUST be born again as “spirit-filled” believers in HIM! But the only way we can do that is through being “born again”. And the only way we can be “born again” is through WATER AND THE SPIRIT! Translation? Baptism!

In other words, getting saved is by GRACE through FAITH + OBEDIENCE! Now, before others start touting me as saying, “You’re preaching a works-based Salvation”, that’s not what I’m saying AT ALL! What I’m saying is that we’re Saved in the name of Jesus by grace through faith AND obedience!

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

“Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven. Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity — [Matthew 7: 21-23]

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

Translation? You can “believe” in Jesus Christ all you want to, until the cows come home! But if you don’t also OBEY Jesus Christ and his commands in the bible, you’re not truly BORN AGAIN! And you WON’T be Saved in the name of Jesus Christ UNTIL you get truly BORN AGAIN, are you HEARING me on this, people?

Lets examine another passage, here……

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

Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfil. For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled” — [Matthew 5: 17-18]

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

Look around you, folks! Has ALL been fulfilled yet, according to the bible? Or is there much, much MORE yet to be fulfilled (according to the book of Daniel, book of Revelation, Ezekiel, etc.?) Hint: ALL won’t be fulfilled until the times of Revelation chapters 21-22!

So that brings to mind my next point. What is baptism and why is it a required mark of obedience to our Lord & King [Jesus Christ Almighty?] Answer: It is the public declaration of faith, the ceremonial “washing away” of sins and the “old life”, the “spiritual cleansing/rebirth” into the “new life” with Christ, and the means by which we receive the gift of the Holy Spirit/The Spirit of Truth (which will help guide us into ALL righteousness and will tell us the things that are of God/Jesus Christ and that are NOT of God/Jesus Christ……the spirit of spiritual discernment….).

And for those who try to claim that baptism is NOT a required mark of obedience to our lord & King Jesus Christ Almighty, please prayerfully consider the following bible passages:

  1. Luke 3:16

  2. Matthew 3:13-17

  3. Mark 1: 9-11

  4. Luke 3: 21-22

  5. John 1: 29-33

  6. Mark 1: 4-5

  7. Mark 16:16

  8. Acts 2:38

  9. Acts 8: 35-38

  10. Acts 16: 31-33

  11. Romans 6: 3-6

  12. 1 Corinthians 12:13

  13. Galatians 3:27

  14. 1 Peter 3:21

Because SADLY, many “Christians” are going around today, thinking that, “All I have to do is believe in Jesus Christ and live a good life and I’m saved, easy as pie!” But it’s NOT that simple, folks! In fact, Jesus Christ describes it as a NARROW WALK!

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

Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereatBecause strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it” — [Matthew 7: 13-14]

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

The Christians that think that baptism isn’t required at all for a mark of obedience to our Lord & King Jesus Christ Almighty reminds me of the people that Jesus describes as walking on a “broad path” in the above passage. Because non-believers ALSO think that baptism’s not required [as a mark of obedience to Jesus Christ Almighty] to get to the Lord’s kingdom [what THEY oftentimes refer to as “heaven”]. Do you get where I’m going with this, people?

Ofcourse, for those who are INCAPABLE of getting to a body of water [those in a coma, in EXTREME medical conditions, or other conditions which PREVENT a person from being baptized — such as the thief on the cross, for instance], the Lord Jesus will make an exception.

But in ALL other cases where a person is physically ABLE to get baptized in a body of water — or bathtub/tub full of water — and chooses NOT to? The Lord will hold that person accountable on the Day of Judgement! The non-baptized Christians will be like the people in the Matthew 7:22ish passage, 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?”

But instead of PRAISING the willfully disobedient unbaptized Christian, Jesus Christ will INSTEAD say, “I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity” – [Matthew 7:23b] 

Okay, let us backtrack once more to Jesus’s response to Nicodemus, who wanted to know how to “get Saved” in the name of Christ:

Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God. That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit” — [John 3: 5-6]

Now, there’s still some Christians out there which CLAIM that one can receive the gift of the Holy Spirit WITHOUT water baptism…..But unfortunately, there’s no scriptural basis for that [outside of the thief on the cross who got saved but that’s a whole different story altogether as the thief on the cross wasn’t ABLE to get to a body of water for baptism!]

Not to mention that Jesus Christ HIMSELF was baptized in the River Jordan, while all his disciples were full-water-immersion baptized as well! So clearly, if baptism were NOT required in any way, shape or form, A) Jesus Christ HIMSELF wouldn’t have done it and commanded others to do so and B) Jesus Christ wouldn’t have baptized me HIMSELF during my NDE when I was around 2 years old or so!

I really don’t know how it’s even possible for people to receive the gift of the Holy Spirit/Spirit of Truth WITHOUT a full-water immersion baptism. Yes, there’s plenty of “Catholics”, “Lutherans”, “Episcopalians”, etc. that get baptized “with a sprinkling” but THAT’S NOT BIBLICAL!

In fact, just look at how many “Catholics”, “Lutherans”, “Methodists” etc. SUPPORT the abominable sins of abortion, divorce, remarriage and the gay/trans movement today! That’s because they WEREN’T properly baptized with the BIBLICAL model of baptism (full-water immersion) and DON’T have the Holy Spirit (the TRUE, BIBLICAL HOLY SPIRIT OF TRUTH) residing in their souls/churches. Because if they DID, they’d KNOW the ABOMINABLE HELLISHNESS of the gay/trans movement, abortion, divorce, remarriage, etc.

Mormons are a different case. They USE full-water-immersion baptism but they do it IMPROPERLY. Since the Holy Spirit is NOT in the Mormon church, the “Spirit” that unsuspecting people can baptized INTO in the Mormon church is NOT the Holy Spirit of the bible but rather, another “Spirit”, altogether! A dark, Satanic one, that is!

The Mormon church is based on LIES! Joseph Smith had over 99 FAILED prophecies! 99! Jesus Christ Almighty? Hasn’t had one failed prophecy, YET! Just goes to show ya the difference between God’s Eternal Truth contained in Jesus Christ Almighty and the Devil’s Eternal LIES (found in the FALSE, UNBIBLICAL prophet Joseph Smith).

And I’m not even gonna touch on OTHER false religions out there that GO AGAINST Jesus Christ Almighty and his Eternal Truths found in the bible (Old AND New Testaments!)

But you got two choices and two choices, ONLY: Are you gonna FULLY submit to Jesus Christ and obey ALL his commands in the bible, including baptism/being born again of water AND of spirit? Or are you gonna follow a DIFFERENT religion, no religion, Satan’s religion, or a NON-BIBLICAL “Christian tradition”?

Because today, I submit to you that the ONLY TRUE religion on Earth is MESSIANIC CHRISTIANITY! One that adheres to both Old AND New Testaments! One that celebrates the Lord’s TRUE, 7th day (blessed, consecrated/sanctified) BIBLICAL SABBATH (Saturday) and that celebrates the TRUE BIBLICAL HOLIDAYS (such as Passover, Tabernacles, Trumpets, etc.)

One that partakes of BIBLICAL baptism (full-water-immersion baptism in the name of Jesus Christ Almighty! Because one truly wants to, not because they “have to”!) One that embraces the Lord’s truth found in the bible and rejects ALL outside sources that attempt to “tamper” with it! One that DOES AWAY WITH ALL THINGS PAGAN (Easter, Christmas, Valentine’s Day, etc.)

Because lets face it, Jews are missing the complete truth of God (as they practically do away with the New Testament and Old Testament, COMPLETELY!) They have replaced TRUTH with TRADITIONS OF MAN (the Talmud). Just like today’s “Christians” are ALSO missing half the truth (they do away with the Old Testament, as if it no longer matters!) So Christians (as a whole) only have HALF THE TRUTH of GOD!

But “BIBLICAL Christians?” They have the full 100% BIBLICAL, UNALTERED ETERNAL TRUTH OF GOD, and Satan HATES THAT! He absolutely, positively can not STAND the fact that “BIBLICAL Christians” have the full eternal truth of God in their minds, hearts, bodies and spirits! So he spiritually fights against THEM the most!

For example, he’ll send “unbiblical Christians” to try to make them DOUBT that the Lord wants them ONLY CELEBRATING the BIBLICAL 7TH DAY SABBATH and BIBLICAL HOLIDAYS! He’ll also occasionally send “old school” Jews in their path, calling them a “spiritual charlatan” for celebrating the “Jewish feasts”, and “how DARE THEY celebrate in feasts that old school Jews consider sacred”, etc.!

[Hint: They’re not so much “Jewish feasts” so much as they are BIBLICAL FEASTS for ALL the Lord’s people to observe, not just SOME!]

But WHEN, as a BIBLICAL Christian, you get that sense of, “is it REALLY wrong for me to celebrate in the biblical 7th-day Sabbath and the bible’s BIBLICAL holidays?”, KNOW THIS: Satan and his demons are silently declaring WAR on you, trying ever-so-hard to take you away from the Lord’s eternal truth! But don’t let them win, folks! Pray in the name of Almighty Yeshua that you’ll be able to stand in these last days!

And for those of you out there that think that Jesus Christ and his disciples DIDN’T partake of the 7th-day biblical Sabbath and 7 biblical holidays + 2 Minor biblical holidays? Here’s proof [while the John 5:1 feast is still up to biblical interpretation by most bible scholars]:

  • Luke 13:10 [7th Day Saturday Sabbath]
  • Matthew 26:17 [Passover/Unleavened Bread]
  • Luke 2: 41-42 [Passover]
  • John 7:1-2 & Acts 18:21 [Tabernacles]
  • Acts 2:1 [Pentecost]
  • Acts 27:9 [Day of Atonement]
  • Luke 22: 1-7 [Unleavened Bread]
  • John 7-9 [Last Great Day]
  • John 10: 22-23 [Chanukah]
  • John 5:1 [Purim?]

So therefore, if Jesus Christ and his own disciples celebrated the “Jewish feasts”, that can only mean that we ourselves are to follow their example! 

Jesus Christ is PERSONALLY REVEALED in every and every one of the “feasts”, listed up above. But yet, Jesus Christ is actually MOCKED in today’s PAGANIZED CHRISTIAN HOLIDAYS. Christmas reduces Jesus Christ to nothing more than a “helpless babe in a manger”, while Easter equates Jesus with Ishtar, the Babylonian/Persian fertility “goddess”. 

So in closing, REMEMBER:

A). We must be BORN AGAIN by WATER AND SPIRIT (Baptism – not ONLY of the body, but of the mind, heart, body AND spirit!)

B). Today’s PAGANIZED “Christian holidays” MOCK Jesus Christ, while the JEWISH/BIBLICAL HOLIDAYS actually REVEAL AND CELEBRATE Jesus Christ! 

You can follow traditions of man……….OR………you can follow the TRUE, BIBLICAL JEWISH TRADITIONS of Jesus Christ and his disciples THEMSELVES! The choice is up to YOU! But don’t say I didn’t warn you! 

Because you really DON’T want to be one of of those people whom Jesus Christ says to someday, “I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity” — Matthew 7:23b

And lets face it. Placing PAGAN TRADITIONS over the BIBLE’S TRADITIONS truly IS “working iniquity” in one’s mind, heart, body and spirit, IS IT NOT? 

I pray that all souls who read this will become BORN AGAIN by water and spirit and will PUT AWAY all things/traditions Pagan and EMBRACE the Jewishness of Jesus Christ and disciples and EMBRACE God’s traditions (7th-day Sabbath, biblical holidays), instead of man’s “traditions” (false man-made Sunday Sabbath, Christmas, Easter, etc.) Amen.
