The TRUTH About Modern Day “Secular Therapy”, ETC.

Modern day “secular therapy” has us go to “psychiatrists” and “psychologists”. Many secular “experts” tell us that our “depression” and “anxiety” and “behavioral disorders” (especially in young children and teens) are caused by a “chemical imbalance of the brain” and that “medication” + “secular talk therapy” is the ONLY means by which to be “healed”. But is that RIGHT? Is it BIBLICALLY sound and ACCURATE? Or is it just one of MANY “secular lies” that are meant to once again HIDE US FROM THE COMPLETE 100% TRUTH OF ALMIGHTY GOD/JESUS? Let us examine.

When going to Amazon one day to search for some Christian end times resources, the Lord Jesus IMMEDIATELY compelled me to suddenly look at the actual user reviews for an ungodly book called: “The Satanic Bible”. And I said outloud in shock: “JESUS, ARE YOU FOR REAL ON THAT? YOU CAN’T BE SERIOUS!”

But instead, the sad but calm/firm answer I got back from him was THIS: “Look at what they SAY…..the people who UPHOLD that ungodly book, that is…..it will help give you a really good insight into HOW the enemy deceives and the EXACT POINTS in people’s lives WHERE he’s deceiving them AT. You might just be surprised!”

And so, after spending some time in prayer and with much trepidation, I headed on over to see the user reviews! And MAN, WAS MY SOUL **GRIEVED** AND SADDENED, as I poured over the user reviews to try to figure out just WHAT these poor, deceived folks found so “enticing” about “Satan/Satanism”. I felt like my soul was about to vomit!

Nevertheless, ONE particular user review STOOD OUT AT ME! In fact, it was ONE sentence in particular IN that review that really JUMPED RIGHT OUT AT ME!

………”IF YOU ARE INTERESTED IN PSYCHOLOGY, YOU WILL BE SURPRISED, HOW CLOSE MANY ASPECTS OF THIS BOOK ARE TO WHAT THERAPISTS TEACH THEIR CLIENTS TO **IMPROVE THEIR LIVES!**…….”

Now, WOW…..that quote is QUITE TELLING, isn’t it, folks? But yet, it actually makes sense. Modern day “secular therapy” and all the colleges and universities (UNLESS it’s born-again CHRISTIAN therapists/psychiatrists) are all teaching a thing called “self-actualization”.

Basically, that means the promotion of SELF! Or in other popular lingo, it means “Do You”, “be the person YOU want to be”, “follow YOUR dreams/desires”, etc., REGARDLESS of what Jesus thinks! In other words, put YOUR own needs above the needs of any and all others (especially Jesus!)

Lets say you want to start a business, etc. Great! But is the Lord Jesus in on it? Do YOU have the Lord Jesus’s approval AND backing for said business, etc.? Because if you DON’T, that’s placing your own wants/needs/desires before Jesus’s will/desire for your life! And placing ourselves BEFORE Jesus in our “life dreams” or “plans” is actually indirectly DENYING the cross of Jesus (rather we like it or admit it or not) and making OURSELVES our “own god!” It’s true! 

And thus, placing our OWN needs ahead of the will of Jesus is, ofcourse, a form of “idolatry” (making ourselves “our own god”), which is COMPLETELY CONTRADICTORY to the words of Jesus Christ himself who in Luke 9:23 said: “…..If any man will come after me, let him DENY HIMSELF, and TAKE UP HIS CROSS *DAILY*, and follow me“. Now…….what does it mean to “take up one’s cross DAILY?”, some of you might be wondering. “Is Jesus talking about a LITERAL CROSS or what?” 

Well, first of all, think of what all Jesus had to endure ON the cross (i.e. excruciating PAIN, sorrow, mocking, ridicule, laughter, being spat on, having a crown of thorns placed on his head, being stabbed in his side with a spear, his hands and feet NAILED to the cross, etc.)

In other words, he had to suffer excruciating pain for OUR benefit (i.e. becoming the ATONEMENT for all of the sins of mankind). Therefore……what does it mean when WE “bear our cross” DAILY for Jesus? It means bearing our personal “CROSSES OF AFFLICTION” FOR the sake of Jesus and his gospel!

And no two people’s “crosses of affliction” are alike! Now…..IS this a LITERAL cross we must nail ourselves to everyday? No, ofcourse not! It is a spiritual, emotional, mental, physical, and psychological cross of “spiritual affliction” that we must pick up and carry with us each and every single day of our lives! So for example, ONE person’s “daily cross of affliction” may be struggles with spiritual persecution for being a Christian, while ANOTHER person’s “daily cross of affliction” might be a struggle with a perpetual sin that they’re attempting to overcome (i.e. alcoholism, lust, same sex attraction, etc.)

And EACH and every single day, each person must spiritually FIGHT that “cross” of spiritual affliction and OVERCOME that “cross of affliction”, if that makes any sense? So in other words, the person that suffers the “cross of spiritual persecution” must ENDURE that spiritual persecution and KEEP THE FAITH, each and every single day, NO MATTER WHAT! And the person struggling with the “cross of affliction” of alcoholism/same-sex attraction/etc. must FIGHT the temptations OF that “sin” (i.e. that “cross of affliction”) each and every single day of their lives! That’s what Jesus means when he says to “….take up his cross daily, and follow me” [reference: Luke 9:23]

Therefore, “self-actualization” and/or worship of SELF does absolutely NOTHING for Jesus or his gospel! In fact, those two ungodly practices actually cause us to DENY our “daily cross of affliction” and to DENY Jesus and his gospel! So think about that for a bit! 

Now….why does Jesus want us to DENY OURSELVES for him in this Earthly life? Think about what Jesus HIMSELF denied for US! When He came to the Earth as a newborn infant, he DENIED himself his divinity and RICHES! (True, he had the “rich gifts” from the 3 wise men…….but he was born into a POOR FAMILY!) He wasn’t even born in a proper inn but in a barn-type stable! Now think about that……..truly think about that for a minute! His whole entire earthly life, he was POOR!

For the 3 some years of his ministry on the Earth, he was a NOMAD! And though he performed miracles, etc., he STILL denied himself of his FULL divinity! And when he was tried and persecuted and nailed to the cross, he CONTINUED to deny himself his full divinity!

In fact, he denied himself EVERYTHING for US! He sacrificed HIMSELF completely for the forgiveness of OUR sins! He then gained victory over death, hell and the grave! He later ascended back up to heaven to be on the right hand side of God the Heavenly Father! THE UNIVERSE HAS KNOWN NO GREATER LOVE THAN THE LOVE THAT JESUS HAD **FOR MANKIND** WHEN HE SACRIFICED HIMSELF ON THE CROSS FOR FORGIVENESS OF MANKIND’S SINS!!! (NOTE: PLEASE READ JOHN 3:16).

Therefore, Jesus denied himself for US! Which is why WE NOW, must deny ourselves, in turn, for HIM and His everlasting gospel! Because we are to be likened onto HIM! For mankind was made in his image! (It says that in Genesis 1:27!) So in other words, we are to try to live our lives as much like Christ as possible. We should strive to serve others before ourselves. We should be slow to anger, quick to forgive, patient, loving, kind. We should honor and follow the 10 commandments, the Sermon on the Mount, etc.

Now, we’re all human, and we’re all going to fall short of the mark of righteousness sometimes. This is recorded in Romans 3:23 which states: “For all have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God”.

So in other words, nobody is perfect and we all make mistakes from time to time. However, that shouldn’t give us a free license to sin! Some of today’s Christian therapists might mean well on the surface. But if they’re not born again or if they’re lukewarm or a “leftist liberal” that supports such things such as LGBT and abortion, it’s time for you to seek a NEW Christian therapist!

But then again, it begs of question: Why do we humans keep going to other people and the internet to try to solve our problems when we should instead be going to JESUS HIMSELF to solve all our problems? Isn’t JESUS HIMSELF the ULTIMATE HEALER? And doesn’t JESUS HIMSELF have all the answers to the questions or problems that we seek solutions for?

Didn’t JESUS HIMSELF create the universe and the heavens? So how then is he going to scratch his head in confusion over how to help us deal with OUR problems? Answer: he won’t! Because doesn’t it stand to reason that if he created the universe and the heavens with just the MERE SOUND OF HIS VOICE (i.e. “let there be light”), that he certainly knows what he’s doing in OUR everyday lives (rather we know it or realize it or not?)

Another aspect I forgot to mention is “demonic influences” (i.e. Ephesians 6:12). They are MUCH more powerful and active than we think! Even just ONE alcoholic drink, ONE ungodly movie, ONE ungodly music song, ONE un-prescribed painkiller, ONE ungodly book (i.e. Harry Potter), ONE ungodly object in our homes such as Ouija board/tarot cards/carved idol could be enough to invite SEVERAL DEMONS into our hearts, homes, minds and SOULS!

So it’s really NO WONDER the majority of Americans today (as well as several people around the world) feel depressed, anxious, restless, unfulfilled, never happy, etc. It’s because of all the “demonic influences” that people have let into their lives! That’s the REAL reason for depression, anxiety, mood disorders, etc.! BUT SECULAR THERAPISTS WILL NEVER TELL YOU THAT!

They’ll lie to you (many being “spiritually lost” themselves) and will say it’s because of a “chemical imbalance in the brain”. Okay, question, who or what CAUSED that so-called “chemical imbalance” in the FIRST PLACE? Any clues? Any guesses? Because it MOST CERTAINLY wasn’t Jesus or his RIGHTEOUS angels that did that!

And the fact that SATAN/DEMONS are responsible for ALL cases of restlessness/anxiety/SEVERE DEPRESSION……it almost sounds somewhat “odd”, “crazy” or “sensational” on the surface, doesn’t it? But yet, the demonic realm is REAL! Many famous movie stars have come out and ADMITTED they sold their soul to Satan and/or agreed to be *inhabited by demons* for money, fortune and fame! And they’re NOT kidding, folks! DEMONS ARE REAL! SATAN IS REAL! Don’t you DARE bet your soul otherwise!

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

Ofcourse, don’t get me started on how the bible constantly uses the words “he”, “him” and “his”. Because in nearly all of those cases, Jesus means females as well. If the bible translators were gonna be very technical about it, they could’ve written “he/she”, “his/hers”, “him/her”, etc.

However, in light of today’s modern day “gender confusion” among the extreme LEFT here in America, I believe Jesus PURPOSELY had them translate the words AS “he”, “him” and “his” in order to avoid any future confusion that might’ve been caused with the modern day “transgender movement”. Because we have to remember that Jesus is an all-powerful, all-knowing God. He knew way ahead of time about the “transgender madness” that would soon take place in this fallen world!

I believe ANOTHER reason the bible tends towards male adjectives is because A) Jesus himself is MALE and all the prophets of Old (save for Anna and Deborah) were MALE! In other words, the message between the lines (all throughout the scriptures) is that modern day men (and women) need to be likened onto the prophets of God that (for the most part) did NOT rebel against God, in other words.

In other words, the whole of scripture is warning us NOT to commit the same ultimate sin that Adam and Eve did. Because IF we do {and in OUR modern day times, taking the Mark of the Beast is what I literally see as partaking of the modern-day version of the knowledge of the tree of good and evil}, the consequence won’t just be physical death but ETERNAL DEATH/CONDEMNATION as well. The reason that Adam & Eve “got off so easy” on their MAJOR TRANSGRESSION is because they were the VERY FIRST humans. They “almost” didn’t know any better.

But yet, MODERN DAY humans? We’ve had nearly 4,000? + years or more of human history, plus the scriptures and scriptural examples, not to mention the atoning sacrifice of Jesus Christ on the cross! Therefore, while Adam & Eve were forgiven for their “original sin” of partaking of the knowledge of the tree of good and evil (even though they were still temporally punished with “physical death” later, as a consequence of their actions), WE (i.e. modern day humans) will be WITHOUT EXCUSE (and be ETERNALLY PUNISHED BY JESUS) if WE partake of OUR modern-day version of “the tree of the knowledge of good and evil” (i.e. The Mark of the Beast!) 

But going back to the modern day field of “psychiatry”. It “diagnosis” things and then “prescribes medication”. And the pharmaceutical industry is a HUGE part of it! They’re CONSTANTLY developing new “drugs” for things such as “depression”, “anxiety”, etc. They FUND studies that attempt to show the so-called “effectiveness” of their “new drugs”. And sadly, those “studies” seem to have very little oversight by the FDA, from what I’ve noticed.

So when you got this multi-BILLION dollar INDUSTRY that makes its money off of people being “sick” and/or “full of depression/anxiety”, you begin to understand how and why all these “meds” are over-prescribed and under-studied! Just follow the $$$$ signs! They don’t make their money by people getting better, folks! They make their money off of people being “sick” and “unhealthy!” Think about it, now! I really hate to say that but it’s the truth! Big Pharma is ONLY out to make money! And “secular therapists” (for the most part anyways, as a whole) are too, for that matter! It’s only the TRULY born-again Christian therapists who aren’t out to make money but to SAVE SOULS!

Also: Drugs meant to treat “depression” and “anxiety” are considered “mind-altering drugs”. But honestly. How is that any different from “psychedelics?” Both of them “alter the mind”, it’s just that one is “legal”, while the other is not. Do we REALLY want or need to put ANY form of “mind-altering drugs” into our system? Even the ones that are “legal?” Think about that long and hard, folks! (Please note: I’m not talking about medications that are used to break fevers or colds or that sort of thing. I’m ONLY talking about mind-altering medications!!!!!!!) 

In fact, I’ve even seen cases where certain anti-depressants (and even some sleep medications) actually INCREASED feelings of depression and anxiety and CAUSED a person (especially a teen or young child) to feel suicidal! As in, making the person BECOME what the medication itself was originally supposed to CURE/TREAT! WHAT IS WRONG WITH THAT PICTURE, FOLKS? That should be a HUGE red flag, people! Who or what is behind Big Pharma? Any guesses folks? Cause it sure as heck ain’t Jesus or his righteous angels!!!!!!!!! 

One word that keeps coming back to me over and over again is the word “pharmakeia”. Something about the word just perpetually HAUNTS MY SOUL (for some reason) and I don’t know why! But according to the following website: https://www.bibletools.org/index.cfm/fuseaction/Lexicon.show/ID/G5331/pharmakeia.htm, the word is a Greek word which means (in retrospect) “pharmacy” or “medicine”. It could also mean “sorcery” or “witchcraft”.

But again, it stands to reason! Just HOW MANY diseases, headaches and ailments (such as depression, epilepsy, anxiety) are actually caused by DEMONIC SPIRITS? Probably more than we think! Jesus was able to cure people INSTANTLY! In most cases, he placed his hand on them and they were healed. Which makes perfect sense. At the mere sight of Jesus, demons TREMBLE! (“Thou believest that there is one God; thou doest well: the devils also believe, and tremble” – James 2:19).

But in TODAY’S WORLD, people are turning to MEDICINE (in and of itself) for all of their mental, emotional and physical ailments, INSTEAD of turning to Jesus Christ himself, whom they SHOULD be turning to! Do you see where I’m going with this, folks?

Today, we live in a such a “pill popping society”. “Oh, you got THIS? Take a pill” seems to be the prime societal attitude. Many people (even myself included, at times) are FORGETTING the fact that Jesus isn’t JUST Almighty God in the flesh, isn’t JUST the “atoning saviour” of ALL of mankind (those who choose to believe in and OBEY HIM, that is), but he’s also THE HEALER! For just how many times do we read about Jesus HEALING PEOPLE *INSTANTLY* in the New Testament? Answer: SEVERAL!

But again, lets us go back to the Lord’s Prayer. When the disciples were on the Mount of Olives with Jesus, they not only asked him about the signs of the end of times (i.e. the end of the age) but they also asked him about the proper way to “pray”. And Jesus’s response was THIS:

But thou, when thou prayest, enter into thy closet, and when thou hast shut thy door, pray to thy Father which is in secret; and thy Father which seeth in secret shall reward thee openly. But when ye pray, use not vain repetitions, as the heathen do: for they think that they shall be heard for their much speaking. Be not ye therefore like unto them: for your Father knoweth what things ye have need of, before ye ask him. 

After this manner therefore pray ye: Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy 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 we forgive our debtors. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. Amen“. Matthew 6:6-13 {Note: Please remember that the very last lines of “For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever” were ADDED WORDS and the Lord’s DIRE WARNING to us about “adding words” in Revelation 22:18-19! That’s something we should all take VERY, VERY SERIOUSLY!!!!!)} 

Okay, now zero in on the words THY WILL BE DONE. What does that imply? It implies that WE (like Jesus) should be seeking the Heavenly Father’s will (DAILY), instead of our OWN WILL! Because when Satan rebelled against the Heavenly Father in Heaven, he wanted HIS will to be done, INSTEAD of the Heavenly Father’s will (which ofcourse, in effect, was likened onto making himself his “own god” – IDOLATRY!) 

So that’s where you get all of this Secular “Do YOU” and “Do What Thou Wilt” stuff. Because Satan (whose angry and knows he has but a short time – as per Revelation 12:12) wants to try to conform all of mankind to HIS ungodly image (Note: Please remember from Genesis 1:27 that we – biologically-born males and females) are made in the image of God and Satan HATES the image of God and thus, desperately wants to THWART IT!) So instead of focusing on the words in the Lord’s Prayer called “THY WILL be done”, Satan is more focused on MY WILL be done”. Do you see where I’m going with this, folks?

We’re SO concerned with what WE think, how WE feel, what WE want out of life (or even out of romantic love). Very, very few of us are concerned with what God the Heavenly Father wants or what Jesus wants! We’re ethnocentric, and egocentric! We think it’s all about US! “What should *I* buy on Amazon today? Where do *I* want to live, someday? How will such n’ such benefit ME? What about how *I* feel about such n’ such? What do *I* want out of life?”, etc. “I”, “I”, “I”, “I”, “I!” However, there’s just one problem with that. Jesus is 99.9% of the time NOT in the picture OF those “thoughts” and “plans!” Kind’ve sobering to think about, isn’t it, folks? 

Group therapy can be effective, yes. It’s always GOOD to know that we’re not the only ones going through something. However…..if Jesus Christ himself is NOT the center of that “group therapy”, then just what good will it do, in the long run? Think about it. 

However, organizations like AA and/or “12 step programs” (for the most part) have a Christian backing. Because think about it. Lets say, just for theoretical example, that the atheists were right and there was no God, etc. Well, WHAT then, would be the prime motivator for a person to stop drinking, etc.? If we were “all that there is”, purely theoretically speaking, then there would truly be no motivator to quit drinking (outside of friends and family, and even THAT would likely be “iffy”, in secular settings and with secular/nihilistic viewpoints). 

However, BECAUSE Jesus exists, there IS a powerful motivator for an alcoholic to stop drinking (outside of friends, coworkers and family). Secular group “talk therapy” would be the same way. If we were “all that there is”, people would just meet like-minded people who would then become depressed TOGETHER, instead of getting better. Therefore, it’s only *born-again* CHRISTIAN group “talk therapy” that will help a person TRULY get better (not just physically but spiritually/emotionally/mentally, too). Secular group therapy only makes a person better up to a certain point. Do you see what I mean by this, folks?

Satan and “demonic spirits” are the ones causing people to drink, causing people to feel depressed and inadequate, causing people to have heartburn and anxiety, and causing people to “become addicted to opioids”.  That’s the BAD NEWS! However, the GOOD NEWS is that BECAUSE those things are caused by demonic spirits, Jesus Christ is ready, willing and ABLE to spiritually and physically deliver a person FROM those ungodly spirits, as soon as a person cries out to Jesus in prayer and TRULY BELIEVES! 

Though, like I said, demonic spirits need a “legal spiritual doorway” by which to enter! So again, I ask: What kind of music are you listening to? What kind of TV shows or movies are you watching? What kinds of video games are you playing? What kinds of friends or people are you keeping company with? What kinds of objects or “thoughts” are you letting into your car, home, workplace? What kinds of “words” or “thoughts” are you MEDITATING ON

I just saw this video earlier today that claimed that “words are energy“. It’s well-worth the watch! And remember, we must SPEAK Christ’s words over ourselves DAILY! The words of Christ HAVE POWER

So that being said, have you felt depressed, stressed, full of anxiety over the present or future, etc? Turn to Jesus today IN PRAYER! Have the FAITH that he will HEAL YOU and then he will HEAL YOU! 

Speak OUTLOUD the following words and phrases (and TRULY BELIEVE THEM) in order to GIVE THEM POWER:

1). “Spirit of Depression, I demand you to DEPART, in the name of Jesus!”

2). “Spirit of Anxiety/Heartburn/etc., I demand you to LEAVE, in the name of Jesus!”

3). “But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed” – Isaiah 53:5

4). “I can do all things through Christ, who strengthens me” – Philippians 4:13

5). “And they OVERCAME HIM [Satan] by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death” – Revelation 12:11

6). “And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand” – John 10:28

7). “And the devil that deceived them was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone, where the beast and the false prophet are, and shall be tormented day and night for ever and ever” – Revelation 20:10

 

Beware: The “Disguised” Devil in Plain Site!

Many Catholics (and even non-Catholics alike) just LOVE Pope Francis and think he’s “the greatest thing since sliced bread”. But what MANY people don’t realize (specifically, many Christians, Jews and Catholics themselves), is that MANY, MANY things he says and does actually goes AGAINST the bible and AGAINST Jesus Christ! Don’t believe me? Lets examine many of the PERSONAL QUOTES/BELIEFS of Pope Francis (Papa Francesco):

  • “‘Reading Genesis we imagine that God is ‘a wizard with a magic wand’ capable of doing all things, he said. ‘But it is not so. He created life and let each creature develop according to the natural laws [Evolution] which he had given each one.’”

  • [The Catholic Church no longer teaches creationism – the belief that God created the world in six days – and says that the account in the book of Genesis is an allegory for the way God created the world]
  • “Each of us has a vision of good and of evil. We have to encourage people to move towards what they think is good… Everyone has his own idea of good and evil and must choose to follow the good and fight evil as he conceives them. That would be enough to make the world a better place.”
  • “Since many of you do not belong to the Catholic Church and others are non-believers, from the bottom of my heart I give this silent blessing to each and every one of you, respecting the conscience of each one of you but knowing that each one of you is a child of God.”
  • “From my point of view, God is the light that illuminates the darkness, even if it does not dissolve it, and a spark of divine light is within each of us.”
  • “If someone is gay and he searches for the Lord and has good will, who am I to judge? We shouldn’t marginalize people for this. They must be integrated into society.” [Note: I’m pretty sure he’s talking about those actually LIVING the lifestyle, not those “celebate” ones who struggle with same-sex attraction but still desperately want a spiritual relationship with Christ!] 
  • “A church without women would be like the apostolic college without Mary. The Madonna is more important than the apostles, and the church herself is feminine, the spouse of Christ and a mother.”
  • “The Lord has redeemed all of us, all of us, with the blood of Christ: all of us, not just Catholics. Everyone! ‘Father, the atheists?’ Even the atheists. Everyone!”
  • “Christians who avoid taking risks out of concern for the Ten Commandments as suffering from “cowardliness,” warning that such people become “paralyzed” and unable to “go forward
  • PLUS MANY, MORE MORE!!!!!!!! 

Now tell me, people…….If the Roman Catholic POPE (in this particular case, Francis) believes and practices things that go AGAINST the bible, then what does that say about the Roman Catholic Church’s theology/practices, in and of ITSELF? Again, lets examine the evidence…..lets examine what the Roman Catholic Church (and its theology/beliefs/practices) has to say about ITSELF:

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

But people, the point I want to make is THIS:

  1. The Roman Catholic Church (in and of itself – outside of its Fight for Pro-Life) is UNBIBLICAL
  2. Pope Francis’s “liberal theology” is UNBIBLICAL
  3. The Roman Catholic Church MIXES TRUTH WITH LIES (i.e. The Fight For Pro-Life Vs. “Bowing Down to Idols & Graven Images’, etc.)
  4. The Pope AGREES with the UNBIBLICAL “religions” of “climate change”, “ecumenicalism”, “evolution”, etc.
  5. The Pope will actually (unfortunately) HELP bring about the *reign* of the ANTICHRIST! 
  6. The Pope (& the Roman Catholic Church) are STILL persecuting the TRUE SAINTS of God (those who not only BELIEVE in the bible from Genesis to Revelation + 1611 KJV Apocrypha, but those who TRUST IN JESUS CHRIST *ALONE* AND THAT ADHERE TO the bible’s contents and warnings!)
  7. Pope Francis (who unfortunately himself is deceived, already) is/has been/will continue to SPIRITUALLY DECEIVE MANY
  8. There’s VERY good biblical evidence that the Roman Catholic Church (i.e. The Vatican) is the either the Whore and/or Beast System of Revelation! 

But remember: The Devil’s goal is to KILL, STEAL & DESTROY (lives, hearts, bodies, AND souls!) He doesn’t come with a hellish face, horns and a pitchfork, people! He comes IN DISGUISE! And what better disguise than RIGHT *INSIDE* THE CHURCH, RIGHT INSIDE THE *VATICAN ITSELF?* Think about it, folks!

When the Pope VERY FIRST “came into office”, sort’ve speak, he seemed very mild, likeable and down to Earth. All the Catholics everywhere (and even Christian themselves) seemed to love him! (But in the back of many liberal’s minds, they were hoping to, unfortunately, “use the Pope” for THEIR left-wing philosophy/causes!) And as time has wore on over the years, he’s actually BECOME more and more BOLD and UNBIBLICAL in his “stances” on issues such as “evolution”, “abortion”, “adultery”, etc. (Quite simply put, he’s been deceived by Satan and those on the left!) 

Now…….do I think the Pope is THE ANTICHRIST talked about in Revelation? Not exactly. Although I DO think there’s a very good biblical possibility that he could be THE FALSE PROPHET talked about in the book of Revelation! Because the bible says that’s EXACTLY what the FALSE PROPHET will do……LIE TO PEOPLE and make them THINK that what he’s saying/doing and thinking is BIBLICAL, when in actuality, it’s really NOT!

But the bible HINTS (in the book of Revelation in the New Testament) that both THE BEAST (Antichrist/Antichrist System) AND THE FALSE PROPHET will have SUCH power of persuasion that MANY UPON MANY will be DECEIVED! (ETERNALLY DECEIVED!)

In fact, just LOOK how many people today are ALREADY DECEIVED by “liberalism” into thinking that “homosexuality/sodomy/gay marriage/transgenderism”, “abortion”, “adultery”, “cohabiting and/or sex outside of or before marriage” is OK….When just a decade or so ago, it would’ve been UNTHINKABLE in most Christian people’s minds!

But in fact, a quote from George Orwell really gets me every time and that’s THIS: The people will believe what the media TELLS them they believe!

And The Pope & The Vatican are ALL OVER THE MEDIA! In fact, just like with Barack Obama, the media is having “quite the lovefest” with Pope Francis & The Vatican. I’m almost just as quick to blithely ask the liberal liberal media: “So….when’s *the WEDDING?*” (between they and the Pope/Vatican…..)

No, but in ALL seriousness…..one (rather liberal or not) can NOT deny the fact that the media is just DROOLING (as a collective whole) over Pope Francis & The Vatican! Seems like every other day I’m reading an article about Pope Francis this, or Vatican that, etc. Not to mention that I’ve ALSO taken notice of something: why are all the U.S. EVANGELICAL LEADERS (Rick Warren, Joel Osteen, etc.) and WORLD LEADERS meeting with the Pope? Why, INDEED? It kind’ve makes a person wonder, doesn’t it?

But then again, it should really come as NO SURPRISE since The Pope/The Vatican will have an INTEGRAL PART in the soon coming ONE WORLD ORDER! The Jesuit Vatican is where they will likely set up “headquarters” for the One World Gov’t, One World Religion and One World Economy…..or at the very least, the One World Religion part of it. WAKE UP, PEOPLE! The Jesuits (as a whole) are EVIL! They (as a whole) are Satan’s “henchmen” in disguise!

People of the world (as a whole — SPECIFICALLY Jews *and* Christians) have been SPIRITUALLY ASLEEP! People in today’s world (as a whole) are MUCH too worried about the latest music, movies or videogames than they are about world news events and how it ties in to bible prophecy! This stuff was prophesied in the bible over THOUSANDS of years ago (INCLUDING the fact that at the last days, there would be many scoffers and mockers) and yet, most people of today don’t even know that and/or don’t even care! SAD!

But I WILL say this: IF you are a member of the Roman Catholic and/or Catholic Church, don’t just walk away from it, RUN! RUN FOR YOUR DEAR SOUL’S LIFE, WHILE THERE’S STILL TIME! Because believe me, ON Jesus Christ’s Day of Judgement (The TRUE/BIBLICAL/”JEWISH” JESUS CHRIST and NOT the false, Paganized one taught in churches today)……WHEN you stand before Him, The Almighty God, maker of the heavens and the Earth……..

The very LAST thing you’d EVER want THE BIBLICAL “JEWISH” JESUS CHRIST asking YOU, The “Catholic”, is something along the lines of why you never read the bible (front to back) for yourself, to see rather or not the “Catholic churches’s teachings” are/were so and also why you (as a “practicing Catholic”) repeatedly broke the 2nd and 4th commandments (which are NOT to bow down to any idols or graven images and to remember the Sabbath Day, to keep it holy — respectively), amongst other things. 

Now……we know from Genesis that the TRUE, BIBLICAL SABBATH is the 7th day of the week, which is SATURDAY!!!!! Because remember……The Lord created the Earth and the heavens in 6 days and RESTED ON AND SANCTIFIED THE 7TH DAY (SATURDAY) AS A “DAY OF REST”. And so for MORTAL MAN to “change the Sabbath” and claim that God HIMSELF changed it is (either knowingly or unknowingly) committing BLASPHEMY against Almighty God! 

But folks: Rather you’re an “ex-Catholic” that’s ALREADY gotten out of the Catholic Church or you’re a Christian/Jew that KNOWS the Roman Catholic Church is NOT biblical, we need to PRAY for ALL Catholics….(INCLUDING Pope Francis and all Vatican officials)……We need to pray that the Lord Jesus Christ (the BIBLICAL “Jewish” Jesus Christ) will soon open up their hearts, souls and minds to HIS gospel and not the FALSE, Paganized gospel taught in the churches today! Because remember that you yourself were once an “uninformed” and “restless/unsaved” soul, correct? What if no-one had ever taken the time, prayers or efforts to enlighten YOU? How would YOU feel? 

Hint: DON’T READ THE NEWER BIBLE TRANSLATIONS (NKJV, NIV, NSRV) FOR THEY HAVE BEEN PERVERTED! ONLY READ THE 1611 KJV + APOCRYPHA as the Lord Jesus Christ ADMONISHES (that means SEVERELY JUDGES) anyone who ADDS/REMOVES words from the bible (as Revelation 22:18-19 states!)

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

The list of the Apocrypha books are as follows: 

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

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

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

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

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

the-pseudepigrapha

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

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

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

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

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

Why So Many Bible Translations and Church Denominations?

Step inside any Christian bookstore today and not ONLY will you likely see VERY LITTLE books about God/Jesus SPECIFICALLY (aside from the bibles, ofcourse) but you will also notice alot of self-help books, books with authors’ pictures taking up the entire book cover, OUTRAGEOUSLY EXPENSIVE PRICES for most items and SEVERAL different bible translations!!!!!

NIVDidCatholicGiveBnkjv2a

NOTE: The newer bible translations claim to be “better” and “more readable” but what I’m about to tell you is gonna rock you to the core!

Revelation 22: 18-19 says: 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”.

And what’s interesting to note about this is that the New King James Version has omitted and changed NUMEROUS words! According to http://www.av1611.org/nkjv.html

The NKJV removes the word “Lord” 66 times!
The NKJV removes the word God 51 times!
The NKJV removes the word “heaven” 50 times!
In just the New Testament alone the NKJV removes 2,289 words from the KJV!
The NKJV makes over 100,000 word changes!

nkjv2aAnd that’s just from the NEW King James Version, that doesn’t even scratch the surface of all the OTHER numerous word changes in the OTHER new bible versions (such as NIV, NSRV, ERV, etc.)

The King James Version came from ONE translation source while all OTHERS bibles came from a completely DIFFERENT translation source. But one thing is clear! The holy, divine Word of God is NOT to be tampered with! And that’s EXACTLY what these supposed “newer” versions DO!

So the next time you go out and buy a bible, please make sure it’s the King James Version!

And as far as all these SEVERAL church denominations go, that ALSO goes against the words of the bible (in and of itself). Because the holy Word of God is not like going to a fast food drive-thru where you can “customize” your experience to “only have the lettuce without the tomato”, or “only have the cheese and tomato with mustard but no lettuce”.

God’s Word isn’t like that! God’s Word is holy, pure and TRUE! People that lived back during the time of King James were VERY, VERY careful about EVERY SINGLE WORD they copied, trying to make sure it was as accurate as possible! Do you really think that modern-day publishers have cares of such regards? All they see are $$$$$ signs, think about it, folks!

And same with many modern church leaders of today as well. They aren’t so much concerned about souls as they are $$$$$ signs. Which brings me to my next point. Why so many church denominations?

When you go back in time during the time of Jesus Christ, you see three major religious groups at the time. The Romans/Pagans, the Orthodox/loyal to Rome Jews who denied Jesus, and the Jews who followed Christ (now known as early Christians). And since then, there have been various others who’ve tried to distort Jesus’s message/divinity.

You had Mohammed who tried to say that Jesus Christ was never crucified (in spite of the fact that SEVERAL non-Christian accounts prove he WAS crucified), you had Catholics saying that Mary was higher than Jesus and/or coequal with him, you had Mormons say that Joseph Smith was necessary for salvation, you had Buddhists say that Buddha was a god, Hindus say that Brahma was God and was in everything and everyone, various people THEMSELVES claiming to be God (such as Marshall Applegate, David Koresh, Jim Jones, Jose Luiz Jesus De Miranda, etc.)

In other words, over time, Jesus’s divine message of salvation for sins became distorted by all the false teachings and false religions out there. And WITH the false religions and false teachings out there came people who decided to pick and choose for their own (to pick and choose WHAT parts of the bible they wanted to believe or disbelieve). And you CAN’T do that, if you truly want to follow Christ!

You can’t just say that you’re going to help feed the poor, but not follow the true, biblical Sabbath, for instance. Or you can’t say that you’ll follow all the 10 commandments but not the Sermon On the Mount teachings, since the Sermon on the Mount teachings EXPAND upon the 10 commandments in great detail!

Or you can’t just say that you’ll follow the Sermon on the Mount teachings but NOT the 10 commandments, since the Sermon on the Mount teachings DERIVED FROM the 10 commandments themselves! Just like you can’t say you believe the whole bible MINUS the book of Revelation, as the book of Revelation is CENTRAL to the conclusion of the ENTIRETY of the bible!

But yet, that’s EXACTLY what church denominations DO…….they pick and choose what they want to believe and what they DON’T want to believe and it’s very, very tragic. Because IN doing so, they turn their eyes from the truth and instead turn to lies! Just look at HOW MANY Christian churches today worship on the FALSE SABBATH (Sunday) instead of the TRUE SABBATH (Saturday) and that participate in PAGAN-ORIGINATED HOLIDAYS (Christmas, Halloween, Easter, etc.) while NOT participating in the Lord’s REQUIRED 7 Annual Celebrations (such as Passover, Pentecost, etc.)

Were most people and church leaders even aware that the Lord’s people will STILL be participating in the Lord’s 7 Annual Celebrations (specifically, Feast of Tabernacles) in the New Millennial Kingdom? Do they even care? Why would the Lord have his people celebrate that in the Millennial Kingdom ONLY but not here during mortal time on Earth, especially when Jesus Christ HIMSELF and the apostles celebrated all 7? Think about it, folks! He wouldn’t! He requires us to celebrate all 7!

[Side note: There are some very good books out there that talk about the Lord’s 7 annual feasts and how to celebrate them. I would strongly recommend the following: “Celebrating Jesus in the Biblical Feasts” by Dr. Richard Booker and “The Feasts of the Lord” by Kevin Howard and Martin Rosenthal].

Remember Jesus’s passage in Matthew 5:17-18 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”

At that point in time when Jesus spoke those words, the cross/plan of salvation needed yet to be fulfilled……..BUT…….everything will NOT be COMPLETELY fulfilled until the VERY END of the book of Revelation [Revelation 22’s conclusion!] Think about it, folks!

There are some out there that claim that Revelation ALREADY HAPPENED in the 1st century and that the passages were specifically meant for the Romans, ONLY. But ya know what? If that were true, (if Revelation had already happened, that is), then ALL the inhabitants of the Earth that ever lived (from creation until now) would have ALREADY been judged and Jesus Christ would ALREADY be ruling over/on the Earth during the time of his Millennial Kingdom! But SINCE those events haven’t happened yet, we know that the majority of the things written about in the book of Revelation have YET to happen.

How many modern day churches do you know of that teach about the book of Revelation and/or bible prophecy? My guess is probably very few and far between.

And of the churches that DO discuss such things, do they emphasize the SUNDAY (False) Sabbath or the SATURDAY (True) Sabbath?Do they mention sin and the need for salvation? Do they talk about the importance of following all the things that Jesus layed out for us in the bible [10 commandments, Sermon on the Mount commandments, etc.] and of NOT following the things that are NOT written anywhere in the bible? Do they talk about the IMPORTANCE of “living APART from the world”?

Do they encourage you to celebrate Jesus’s birthday AND death, even though the bible never actually commanded us to celebrate Jesus’s birthday, only to commemorate his death during the Lord’s Supper? Do they say that you can only be saved by faith or by works alone (which would be a false teaching)? Do they talk about the importance of GROWING in your spiritual relationship with Jesus Christ by relying on HIM for your life and NOT on your fellow man/mankind?

Do they talk about the IMPORTANCE of suffering WELL for Jesus’s namesake and that suffering for Jesus Christ is actually considered a BLESSING in the kingdom of God? Do they teach you to forgive others who have hurt you and to pray for your enemies? Do the pastors and fellow church members cry tears of joy when they talk about how they came to Jesus Christ and what Jesus means to them?

People are SO confused these days about what “bible” to pick to read (“there’s so many different translations out there, how can I know which one is best?”), what religion to follow (“there’s so many religions out there to choose from, how do I know which one is right?”) and what church to go to (“there’s so many churches to choose from, which one is possibly best?”).

But ya know what? That was Satan’s plan since day one. To DIVIDE AND CONQUER the Lord’s children. And how best to do that? By creating MASS CONFUSION. And how best to do THAT? By creating MANY different bible translations, MANY different religions, and MANY different churches and church denominations.

But don’t fall fool to his game! Pick up a King James Version bible today (the ORIGINAL KJV and NOT the “New” KJV/NKJV) and instead of going to church (a place where, in today’s “secular world”, you will more than likely NOT find the true, biblical God talked about in the bible), read it front to back, on your own, in your own spare time.

And DON’T turn to televangelists or the internet to try to understand difficult bible passages but instead pray to the Lord Jesus Christ that he will reveal the true meaning of those passages to you, instead. And believe in Jesus Christ and trust him and live your very LIFE for him! Remember that Jesus Christ said in John 14:15 “If ye love me, keep my commandments”.

That means don’t just READ about the 10 commandments or the Sermon on the Mount commandments, etc., OBEY THEM! Pray for forgiveness of your sins and REPENT (that means, give up/stop doing) your sins. Then get baptized in the name of Yeshua/Jesus Christ.

And don’t listen to all the false teachers out there that say FALSE things, such as: “there’s no such thing as sin”, “we no longer need to keep the 7th day Sabbath”, “we don’t need to read the Old Testament, anymore”, “the Lord’s 7 Annual Festivals are JEWISH Festivals, ONLY”, “Once Saved, Always Saved”, “we are saved by our works”, “it’s OK to partake in Pagan holidays if we Christianize them”, “you don’t need to be baptized at all”, “baptism is by sprinkling and not full immersion”, “hell and/or the book of Revelation are not real”, etc. etc.

I pray that ALL who read this find a King James Version bible, will find the hope and 100% truth that is in Jesus Christ/God Almighty in the flesh and will NEVER, EVER become victim to a “false church”, “counterfeit bible translation” (other than KJV) or “false teaching”. Amen.
