“Cultural Christianity” Vs. BIBLICAL Christianity

Many people of today call themselves “Christian” and celebrate in “Christian holidays”, etc. But VERY FEW “Christians” actually take a step back and wonder if what they’ve been “practicing in the church” their whole lives, as a “Christian”, is EVEN BIBLICAL! They just “assume” it is. And that is sad and unfortunate, folks!

CULTURAL CHRISTIANS (as a whole) :

  1. Go to “church” every Sunday

  2. Pay tithes to “the church

  3. Sit in pews while listening to a “pastor” preach (in general) “feel good” messages that oftentimes have nothing to do with the BIBLICAL Jesus Christ, bible prophecy or the End Times (in general), while maintaining own’s own individual “silence” about their own personal experiences/biblical insight with the Lord with fellow church members (during a church sermon) and the OUTSIDE WORLD 

  4. Celebrate in “Christian holidays” without a second’s thought as to WHERE those “traditions” came from/etc.

  5. See nothing wrong with LGBT issues/BEING LGBT

  6. See nothing wrong with “abortion” and see it as a “woman’s right”

  7. Believe the Old Testament and “Biblical Feasts” No Longer Apply, that they are ONLY “Jewish feasts” and also that “Christian holidays” are “truly biblical”

  8. Don’t take marriage vows seriously (as a whole) 

  9. Think it’s OK to bring “New Age” concepts into “the church” (as a whole)

  10. Think “the church” is a building/a place to GO TO and not a thing TO BE

  11. Think Genesis and the book of Revelation ARE NOT REAL

  12. Don’t see ANY major importance in studying up on bible prophecy and the End Times

BIBLICAL Christians, on the other hand, don’t DO any of the 12 things above (as a whole)………In fact, they do JUST THE OPPOSITE:

  1. Celebrate the Sabbath on the BIBLICAL 7TH DAY OF THE WEEK (Saturday), not sunday!
  2. Do NOT pay “tithes” to the institutionalized “Christian church” but instead, CHEERFULLY give to those in need (i.e. a homeless person on the street, someone at the doctor’s office that needs help with medical costs, a person in line at the register that’s short of change/money, etc.)
  3. Study up on the End Times and bible prophecy
  4. (As a whole) Do NOT really celebrate in “Christian holidays” anymore in their hearts but instead, celebrate in the BIBLICAL/JEWISH HOLIDAYS, while also trying to learn as much about the “Jewish/Biblical roots” of Christianity that they can! 
  5. Realize that LGBT behavior is a GRAVE SIN……something that the ancient biblical cities of Sodom & Gomorrah were burned down for!
  6. See Abortion as a GRAVE SIN and realizes that ALL of life is “precious” in the Lord’s site!
  7. KNOW that “Christian holidays” are of Pagan origin and that the “Jewish holidays” mentioned in the bible are the TRUE, BIBLICAL HOLIDAYS!
  8. Take any and all marriage vows SERIOUSLY!
  9. KNOW that “New age” philosophy has NO PLACE in the true, BIBLICAL church!
  10. KNOW and REALIZE that “the church” isn’t a place to go to but rather, a thing TO BE! For EACH believer themselves + the “assembly” of believers = “THE TRUE/BIBLICAL CHURCH”, according to the bible!
  11. KNOW without a doubt that ALL OF THE BIBLE IS TRUE, all the way from Genesis to Revelation!
  12. KNOW and REALIZE the **UTMOST IMPORTANCE** of studying up on bible prophecy and the End Times and knows that Jesus Christ IS the spirit of prophecy!

[Yet sadly, many “CHRISTIANS” today are “CULTURAL CHRISTIANS”. They are not true, AUTHENTIC Christians, but Christians “in name, ONLY”.

Oddly, many people today are “Cultural Christians” without even REALIZING it! In fact, I myself used to be a “Cultural Christian” that worshiped on the Sunday Sabbath, was on the fence about pre-marital sex being a sin or not if two people were engaged to be married, etc. (before the Lord opened up my eyes!)

[YES, Jesus Christ had appeared to me when I was little during a NDE, but there were still many, many things about him/his word that I HADN’T yet learned at that point in time, from ages 2-32. The only thing the NDE did was prove to me that he was real, that he came from heaven, that he had the power over life and death, that his voice had the ability to shake the Earth and the waters and that during the End Times, many would “fall away” and be eternally judged by HIM!}

In fact, Jesus says in Matthew 15: 8-9This people draweth nigh unto me with their mouth, and honoureth me with their lips; but their heart is far from meBut in vain they do worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men“. [OUCH! Does that NOT sound like most of today’s “Christians” in the “institutionalized Christian church”, folks?]

And honestly, I think the Lord “purposely” allowed me to BE a fellow “Cultural Christian” for awhile so that I could see just HOW “easy” it is TO fall into the TRAP that’s known as “Cultural Christianity”. It was only through YEARS and YEARS of biblical study that I was FINALLY able to break free through all the false, Satanic layers in “Modern-day Christianity” and teach OTHERS how to do so! I simply call it “peeling back the layers”.

In fact, if Jesus Christ were to come to the Earth today and see just how “the church” was being run, (in general), I’m sure he’d be just as angry (if not even more so) as he was towards the money-changers in the temple in biblical times (Matthew 21:13). In fact, what would he see, if he were to see most of today’s “Christian churches” and “Christians”? He’d likely see the following:

  1. A “pastor” droning on and on about a “feel good” message that had NOTHING to do with the BIBLICAL Jesus Christ, bible prophecy or the End Times (in general)

  2. People “tithing” money for the “church building upgrade”, the pastor’s new car, etc.

  3. People being “solemn pew potatoes”, instead of JOYOUSLY sharing with EACH OTHER as well as nonbelievers (on a daily basis and not JUST during bible study) their knowledge/experience with the bible/the Lord/their lives as it pertains to Christ/etc.

  4. People “celebrating” in holidays that had absolutely NOTHING to do with the BIBLICAL Jesus Christ and that actually MOCKED HIM, in hindsight (while also WORSHIPING IDOLS – and not just Catholic “saints”, folks….Tell me what the EASTER BUNNY and SANTA CLAUS have to do with Christ? ANSWER: NOTHING!!! They’re an ABSOLUTE MOCKERY OF JESUS CHRIST IN FRONT OF OUR VERY OWN EYES AND MANY HUMANS DON’T EVEN REALIZE OR SEE IT!!!!)

  5. People clinging to “Satanic lies” of “pleasure and SODOMY” (especially in the LGBT community) and ALSO people who buy into the transgender LIE of: “I think, therefore I am” when that personally can’t be FURTHER from the “biological truth!” [Truth be told, NO AMOUNT OF SURGERY IS GOING TO CHANGE A PERSON GENETICALLY……only COSMETICALLY…..plus, even IF such technology would ever come about, MESSING WITH THE IMAGE OF GOD HAS *DIRE* ETERNAL CONSEQUENCES, WHICH IS THE LAKE OF FIRE!] 

  6. Many women in the church “seeing nothing wrong with abortion” and “getting one”, as a result

  7. People writing off Jesus’s BIBLICAL HOLIDAYS (Passover, Tabernacles,etc.) that are both a foreshadowing of him AND revealed in him, saying to themselves and others that they are just “Jewish holidays, ONLY”

  8. Married people cheating on each other right and left and/or working on their 3rd/4th marriage (swapping spouses like they do underwear)

  9. People (especially young people) incorporating New Age concepts into “the church”, while also (as a whole) NOT saving themselves for marriage before having sex/etc.

  10. People TRULY believing in their hearts that “the church” is “a BUILDING”, and not the body/assembly of believers themselves

  11. People TRULY believing in their hearts that Genesis is NOT real, that Revelation is NOT real, that bible prophecy is NOT real/no longer applies

  12. People that “yawn” at bible prophecy and don’t see its total significance

In fact, do you think Jesus Christ would be happy with even HALF the stuff going on in “the churches” today? The answer is a resounding NO!

In fact, during his mighty Day of Judgement, Jesus warns:

Then shall he say also unto them on the left hand, Depart from me, ye cursed, into everlasting fire, prepared for the devil and his angels: For I was an hungred, and ye gave me no meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me no drink: I was a stranger, and ye took me not in: naked, and ye clothed me not: sick, and in prison, and ye visited me not” (Matthew 25: 41-43)

But the UNREPENTANT “Cultural Christians”will be SHOCKED to hear this! They will protest with the FOLLOWING:

“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 7:22)

Lord, when saw we thee an hungred, or athirst, or a stranger, or naked, or sick, or in prison, and did not minister unto thee?” (Matthew 25:44)

And HERE is how Jesus is going to RESPOND to such people:

Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye did it NOT to one of the least of these, ye did it NOT to me” (Matthew 25:45)

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

[And while there’s SOME Christians out there in the church today who truly have NO IDEA about what the true sabbath is, and that DO believe homosexuality/abortion’s a sin, and that DO try to please the Lord Jesus Christ in everything they do, these folks (today, atleast) are FEW and FAR BETWEEN! The good majority of “Christians” in “the church” today are “CULTURAL CHRISTIANS”.

They not only don’t KNOW the REAL history of the Christian church/manmade Sun-day Sabbath:

http://withoutspotorblemish.blogspot.com/2010/04/happy-ishtar-no-wait-i-mean-happy.html

But they DON’T CARE to know these things! And if they DO know the true history of the church/etc., they (once again) DON’T CARE! They are COMPLACENT and have a COMPLACENT ATTITUDE towards Christ and his gospel and it’s that VERY SAME complacent attitude that’s going to COST THEM THEIR ETERNAL SALVATION IF THEY DON’T QUICKLY REPENT AND CHANGE THEIR HEARTS! **THE DOOR TO SPIRITUAL PROBATION IS SOON CLOSING, FOLKS! TIME TO GET RIGHT WITH THE *BIBLICAL* JESUS CHRIST AND NOT THE “FALSE ONE” TAUGHT IN CHURCHES TODAY!!!!!!]

Therefore, any “Cultural Christian” REFUSING to change their heart/mind/body/spirit, AFTER LEARNING THE TRUTH, (THE TRUE BIBLICAL TRUTH), in order to make themselves right with the Lord? Jesus will be ETERNALLY CASTING THOSE PEOPLE OUT……..those that CALLED themselves “Christian” while living on Earth but never really bothered to check just what being a “Christian” really meant or what the TRUE history of Christianity/the “Christian church” was!

Those that called themselves “Christian” but yet, still continued to worshiped IDOLS on a NONBIBLICAL MAN-MADE SABBATH and that also celebrated in PAGANIZED SATANIC HOLIDAYS that actually MOCK JESUS! THOSE who cared more about the world and the things OF the world than they did Jesus and his gospel! Those who never donated to those in need,etc. And BECAUSE they never really gave Jesus (the BIBLICAL JESUS) the TRUE honor, worship and credence that he DESERVED, they will NOT have their names written in the LAMB’S BOOK OF LIFE!

In fact, Revelation 20:15 states the following: “And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire

“What’s the lake of fire?”, some might ask. Answer: It’s 1,000,000 times hotter than the fires of hell! And the fires of hell are 100,000 times hotter than a flame from a small lighter (according to the archangel Michael during one of my near-suicide experiences).

So do the math, folks! The lake of fire is HOTTER THAN ANYTHING IN THE UNIVERSE, most likely! And this fire (BECAUSE it is SO abominably HOT), was originally intended for the Devil and his angels! And the fires of hell are someday gonna MERGE INTO the lake of fire, (according to Revelation in the bible), making it EVEN HOTTER! So imagine this, folks! Put your hand under a small flame from a lighter! Feel the INTENSITY of that flame! Then imagine something that’s 100 TRILLION times hotter than that and that’s the lake of fire for ya!

So just think…..ALL the nonbelievers, ALL followers of “different religions”, ALL “Cultural Christians” will end UP in the “lake of fire”. And they will be there FOR ETERNITY!

For it states in Revelation 14:11 “And the smoke of their torment ascendeth up for ever and ever: and they have no rest day nor night, who worship the beast and his image, and whosoever receiveth the mark of his name

But let me take this a step further. BECAUSE “Cultural Christians” aren’t TRULY saved in the name of Jesus and BECAUSE the Holy Spirit’s not WITH THEM, they will fall for almost any lie brought on by Satan and his New World Order!

In fact, amidst world chaos (that’s already happening in the world today), a global world leader will someday soon come on the scene (if not already so!) He will appear to be the answer to the world’s problems. He will even “promote peace”. But it’ll be a FALSE PEACE! For this global leader is nothing other than THE ANTICHRIST!

And he will someday soon require ALL of Earth’s inhabitants (rich and poor, great and small, free and bond) to take a mark on their right hand or their foreheads, in order to be able to buy and sell. But WHOEVER takes this mark will be DAMNED BY GOD FOR ETERNITY! (That’s what the last part of Revelation 20:15’s talking about: “and whosoever receiveth the mark of his name”).

On the OTHER hand, if Jesus Christ were to return to the Earth today and see all of the people that were desperately trying to RETURN to “Jewish/biblical-roots Christianity” and/or live their lives as “biblically accurate” as possible, I think he would be QUITE PLEASED! For he (in general) would see the following:

  1. Those who study the KJV bible at home or in “small group house churches” (the true, biblical model of “church”)

  2. Those giving money to people who actually need it (e.g. homeless people on the street, people in need of medical assistance costs, the person in front of us at the register who’s short $1 or two, etc.)

  3. Those giving their own biblical “insight” or personal experiences to other fellow Christians AND nonbelievers, instead of just listening to a pastor rattle on & on with what is oftentimes a “feel good” message that has NO true biblical importance concerning the BIBLICAL JESUS CHRIST or merit concerning bible prophecy, the End Times…….OR listening to a true, BIBLICAL message about the End Times/bible prophecy, etc. 

  4. Those who mostly celebrate ONLY in the BIBLICAL HOLIDAYS (Passover, Tabernacles, Pentecost, etc.), while “inching away from Christmas” and DENOUNCING ALL IDOLS/IDOL WORSHIP

  5. Those who see the TOTAL LIES of Satan’s LGBT “agenda” and aren’t afraid to speak up about it

  6. Those who see the TOTAL LIES of “Satan’s abortion agenda” and aren’t afraid to speak up about it

  7. Those who not only believe but KNOW that the Old Testament and Biblical Feasts stand for NOT JUST the Old Testament AND New Testament times but for ALL TIME (even the New Millennium!)

  8. Those who take any and all marriage vows SERIOUSLY

  9. Those who see the TOTAL LIES of Satan’s “New Age concepts” and aren’t afraid to speak up about it, as it pertains to “the church”

  10. Those who know (or have come to know) that “the church” is the body/assembly of believers themselves, and NOT “a building”

  11. Those who KNOW that Genesis and Revelation (and every word of the bible – front to back) is not only REAL but that Genesis ACTUALLY HAPPENED, that everything in the Book of Revelation WILL happen, and that everything in between from the beginning of the bible to the near end has ALREADY HAPPENED – MARK MY WORDS!)

  12. Those who know and realize the UTMOST IMPORTANCE (especially at THIS time and hour in “world history) to study up on bible prophecy and the End Times and how current world news events fit into bible prophecy [Open Your Eyes People is an end times ministry that DOES just that….they focus on world news events and how they tie in to bible prophecy, a MUCH NEEDED MESSAGE in today’s “sinful world!”]

And guess what? On Jesus’s day of judgement, instead of CASTING OUT the people who TRULY hunger and thirst for the TRUE, BIBLICAL righteousness and NOT the FALSE type of “righteousness” as THE WORLD or “church congregations” define it, he will instead say:

“Then shall the King say unto them on his right hand, Come, ye blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world: For I was an hungred, and ye gave me meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me drink: I was a stranger, and ye took me in: Naked, and ye clothed me: I was sick, and ye visited me: I was in prison, and ye came unto me” (Matthew 25: 34-36)

“Well done, thou good and faithful servant: thou hast been faithful over a few things, I will make thee ruler over many things: enter thou into the joy of thy lord” (Matthew 25: 21)

In other words, these true people of the Lord will receive LIFE ETERNAL and will gain entry through the gates of the NEW heavenly city called NEW JERUSALEM, that God Almighty shall bring down from heaven! (Revelation 21-22 in New Testament)

Though sadly, the number of these people will be few and far between. For Jesus says:

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)

A good illustration of this is Youtube. Just look at how many “popular videos” there are on Youtube. Then notice how many of these “popular videos” discuss Jesus’s gospel (Jesus’s TRUE GOSPEL, that is!) Very, very few, right?  

On the OTHER hand, all the Youtube videos that DO talk about Jesus? The true, BIBLICAL Jesus? Most get less than 10,000 views (even 5 years after being on there). Why is that, do you think?

Or just think about email forwards. How often do people send email forwards of funny jokes or funny news articles, yet, HESITATE when it comes to sending emails about Jesus Christ or his gospel? Have YOU ever hesitated at sending an email forward to someone concerning Christ’s gospel? I have, in the past! (Much to my shame!)

But see, that’s just how EASY it is to fall into Satan’s trap, folk! We must be VIGILANT in these last days, sharing Jesus’s LIFE-SAVING *JEWISH-ROOTS* GOSPEL of Salvation with everyone or anyone who’ll listen. NOTE: If you get someone who “pesters” you over the gospel or makes “mocking remarks”, ignore them & keep preaching to others who WILL listen to your message! Because believe it or not, all God wants you to do in the mocker’s life is “plant the spiritual seed”, that’s IT! You’re not responsible for THEIR salvation, folks! Especially if they’re a MOCKER of the gospel! So remember that! 

I personally wish I could send a “TRUE HISTORY OF CHRISTIANITY” flier to every single household here in America! Sadly, many pastors THEMSELVES already KNOW the truth about Constantine and how he changed the Sabbath Day etc. but REFUSE to acknowledge it to their congregations since they still want their funding from the state and since they still want those almighty dollars $$$$$ to be flowing inside their churches! 

Many pastors do sermons where they claim “Satan will never be welcome in THIS CHURCH” (looking around at their congregants for “validation”), but what they don’t know (or DO KNOW but don’t want to admit) is that “Satan” has been in the modern-day “Christian Church” ALL ALONG, ever since Constantine very first gave him a “foot-hold” by changing the Lord’s BIBLICALLY-MANDATED 7th-Day Sabbath to a FALSE, SATANIC, Sun-day worshiping one! That is PRECISELY when Constantine turned “Christianity” into a LIE!

And then, here, you got all these Catholics, all these Lutherans and Protestants that think that “going to church every Sunday” will deem them saved! But oh, how HORRIFIED many of these poor folks will be when they learn THE TRUTH (that Satan was the head and master of the “modern day Christian church” ALL ALONG!)

And oh how HORRIFIED they will be when they LEARN (when they FINALLY LEARN) that the “Jesus Christ” they THOUGHT they were worshiping “at church” was nothing other than Satan himself IN DISGUISE! In fact, the “Jesus Christ” worshiped in churches today is NOT the Jesus Christ of the bible! Repeat: is NOT the Jesus Christ of the bible! Why? Because as a whole, the “JESUS” taught in churches today, here in the year 2016, is a false, Paganized Jesus that seems to “accept” abominable practices such as abortion, homosexuality, divorce, etc. and can’t save a person from their sins! 

YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED, FOLKS! *IF* YOU END UP IN THE LAKE OF FIRE SOMEDAY, IT WON’T BE BECAUSE I DIDN’T WARN YOU! IT’LL BE BECAUSE YOU DECIDED, IN YOUR OWN FREE WILL, THAT YOU KNEW BETTER THAN GOD/JESUS CHRIST AND THAN THE LORD’S SERVANTS! SO REMEMBER THAT, FOLKS! 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

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. 

URGENT END-TIMES MESSAGE: GOD’S WRATH IS UPON AMERICA & “THE CHURCH” (AS A WHOLE):

The ONLY reason that evil’s been able to PROLIFERATE in this country (the U.S.) and the WORLD today is DUE to the “lack of action” of the “church”. Let me explain:

The VERY first mistake of all Christian churches (at their onset) was to incorporate a “Paganized Sabbath” (Sun-day) and “Paganized Holidays” (Christmas, Easter, New Year’s, Halloween, etc.) into the church. This is what originally STARTED the “Great Apostasy” within the Lord’s people. And the SECOND mistake of all Christian churches was to apply for “tax-exempt status”, thus, allowing the STATE to become their head, instead of having JESUS CHRIST ALMIGHTY as their head (& chief cornerstone). And the THIRD mistake of the “churches” has been giving a “thumbs up” to things that are clearly FORBIDDEN in the bible (abortion, divorce, sodomy/homosexual lust, materialism, etc.)

Pretty much 97% of ALL Christian churches since the time of 325A.D. at the Council of Nicea are APOSTATE [though a VERY SMALL percentage — perhaps 3% or so — are still TRUE to the BIBLICAL Judeo-Christian gospel of Jesus Christ!] So then is it REALLY any surprise then that Christian “churches” TODAY (as a whole) are a FAR, FAR cry from what they were during the time of Jesus? And is it really any surprise with what rate of speed the “churches” (as a whole) have openly accepted things that are CLEARLY CONDEMNED in the bible?

Today, in the year 2015, the “church” (as a whole) seems to be “bowing down” to CULTURE and to MAN, rather than to God/Jesus Christ Almighty! For example, the “churches” of today accepting “openly sexual clergy members” and “GAY MARRIAGE WITHIN THE CHURCH: THE **ULTIMATE ABOMINATION?** That’s just the icing on the cake, as far as apostasy goes. What’s next? Will churches also soon “legitimize” incest, polygamy/commune marriages, pedophilia, prostitution, etc? Where does it all end? For if “sodomy” is okay, what OTHER sins are “okay”? (Do you see where I’m going with this, people?)

And then people have the audacity to turn around and wonder WHY the world is “so evil”, today! It’s because “the churches”, and people in general (as a whole) have turned their back on GOD/JESUS CHRIST ALMIGHTY! And we know from the pages of Holy Writ that whenever a nation (as a whole) “forgets God”, he sort’ve leaves them to their own devices for awhile so people (as a whole) OF that nation can come to know what a world without Him is like:

He does this part out of anger/grief over their blatant sin of defying Him & part out of Tough Love, in order to try to draw people and/or a nation (and even specifically the world) back TO Him! That’s why there’s been such “brutal attacks” in the NAME of Islam, lately, for example……the Lord Jesus of the bible is SHOWING us first-hand what the long-term CONSEQUENCES are of following or “enabling” a false religious system like Islam, Roman Catholicism, etc. You have Islamic ISIS members beheading Christians in Middle East, etc., and then you a SLEW of child-molesting Roman Catholic priests.

But in fact, I’ve even heard a horrifying case of some Hindus BURNING 2 CHRISTIANS **ALIVE** IN AN OVEN – A WELDING-TYPE OVEN, much like the Nazis did! (ISIS must be proud!) And see, it’s one thing to not agree with a “religion” but you when you have to resort to DEATH & DESTRUCTION to get your point across? That’s a fairly good indicator that you don’t follow the true God of the bible but instead, follow a FALSE GOD, A **CREATED BEING**, which is SATAN!

The God of the bible is the one and only TRUE GOD — for he created everything & EVERYONE in the universe, INCLUDING the angels! But Satan is NOT god of the universe! He is merely a CREATED BEING with only LIMITED POWER! So why worship a being with LIMITED POWER (SATAN/ALLAH/**PAGANINZED ROMAN CATHOLIC JESUS**) when you can worship the Almighty God/BIBLICAL JESUS CHRIST of the bible that has INFINITE/EVERLASTING POWER and that can ETERNALLY SAVE YOU FROM YOUR SINS?

Islam teaches that one doesn’t know for 100% sure if they will enter “Eternal Paradise” or not; BIBLICAL CHRISTIANITY gives the true follower of Jesus Christ Almighty the 100% ASSURANCE of Salvation and “Eternal Life”. Roman Catholicism teaches that “good works” will save a person; BIBLICAL CHRISTIANITY in the bible records: For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast” [Ephesians 2:8-9]

 Notice how BOTH of those religious systems MOCK the holy bible by introducing FALSE/UNBIBLICAL “doctrines” such “Jesus was NOT the son of God” [Islam] or that the VIRGIN MARY was IMMACULATELY CONCEIVED [Roman Catholicism] or that Genesis is not true [Roman Catholicism].  

But that brings me to my next point: If morality is subjective, WHO gets to decide what’s “sin” and what’s not? If there’s NO general consensus, that would just be chaos and disorder. But Jesus is NOT a God of chaos & disorder, he is a True, Eternal God that’s full of organization & divine order. If our planet, the Earth, was shifted just a few degrees off its axis, life on Earth would NOT be possible. And contrary to what some “scientists” might believe, our universe is not “chaotic”, it’s neatly organized and ordered.  

There is a REASON he placed certain stars and planets where he did, for example. Just like there is a REASON he created his divine “moral code”. Our laws are actually BASED on God’s laws/the 10 commandments. Without God’s laws in place, there WOULD be no morality. And to say one can have morality without God/Jesus Christ’s REDUNDANT since, like I said, who would create the “laws” of mortality in a “subjective morality” and how would such “subjective morality laws” be enforced?

The answer is, subjective mortality can NOT be enforced because it’s well, subjective. For example, one person might think it’s an utter sin to kill another person for insurance money while another may not. So who gets to be “right”, in the subjective morality model? If each man/woman/child on this Earth had a “subjective morality model” and was only for themselves, humans on the Earth wouldn’t last too long, now, would they? We all would’ve killed each other off by now……because hey….with no global human rights laws and no murder laws because “morality is subjective”, what would stop people from doing so, in that case?

Answer: the ONLY way to have “order” is to have a “moral code”, and the only way to have a moral code is to have one set in stone. And God literally set his 10 commandments in stone. And later on, The Sermon on the Mount went much deeper and talked about THE INTENTION of each of the 10 commandments. Therefore, the Sermon on the Mount actually EXPANDED on the 10 commandments, so those Christians out there that try to claim that the 10 commandments were done away with are SADLY MISINFORMED!    

But anyways, the church (as a whole) was SILENT when it came to the issues of divorce, abortion, adultery, idolatry, materialism, sodomy/gay relationships, gay marriage, etc. And IN doing so, it just gave the dark side the fuel they needed to start their DEPRAVED FIRE over mankind (and the church as a whole). In fact, in today’s world, evil seems to be “winning”. Why is that, do you think?

Because most certainly, if “the church” (as a whole) had STOOD ITS GROUND on those issues, I can guarantee there wouldn’t be 1/10th as much evil as we see in the world TODAY! In fact, the dark side (as a whole) would be forced to live in the closet, as if THEY were the “religious minority”. But sadly, in the year 2015, those living on the Dark Side of forces seem to be in the “spiritual majority”, while the rate of BIBLICAL-ROOTS CHRISTIANS (those who take the bible, End Times prophecies, the Lord’s *7th-Day Saturday Sabbath* AND the Lord’s 7 Annual Feasts/Holidays SERIOUSLY) seems to be dwindling. My, how far this country and this world, has fallen! ;(

Yet, all throughout the bible, God was much more harsh with his OWN people, as a whole (when they most seriously “acted up”) than with foreign peoples. In fact, His Wrath starts WITHIN the house of God/his OWN people, and THEN branches outward. Why? Because he simply EXPECTS MORE from his OWN people, rather than from OTHERS who are NOT part of “His people”. Lets face it, all the people living in the world today that DON’T adhere to Him? He EXPECTS them to “act up” and isn’t surprised when they do so. But when the Lord’s OWN PEOPLE act up? THAT’S when He, the great Lord, gets angry & disappointed. Why? Because the Lord’s people know better!

In other words, “the church”, as a whole, should know better than to “legitimize/endorse” behaviors that are SIN in the bible (such as divorce, abortion, adultery, sodomy/lust, materialism, idolatry, humanism, etc.) That’s WHY the Lord God’s FAR more angry with “the church” today (as a whole) than he is with all the non-believers, etc. Now, that’s not to say that the Lord ISN’T angry with the scoffers/mockers/etc., for He most certainly IS! It’s just that He’s FAR more angry with his own “spiritual children” (that he expects MORE FROM) than he is with all others.

And I don’t know alot but I DO know this: the Lord God Almighty is calling “THE CHURCH” (as a whole) to REPENTANCE! Jesus Christ is LONGING for His Children (the Church/Body of Believers) but the Church/Body of Believers is NOT ready! The Church (as a whole) is FAR from ready!

Remember therefore how thou hast received and heard, and hold fast, and repent. If therefore thou shalt not watch, I will come on thee as a thief, and thou shalt not know what hour I will come upon thee” – [Revelation 3:3]

In the above passage, Jesus Christ is talking to “The Church” (as a whole). In fact, in ALL passages in Revelation talking about “the churches”? It is of MY personal belief that the Lord Jesus Christ is actually talking to the “The Church” (as a whole). In the book of Revelation, there’s 7 churches and 7 spirits of God.

And in my humble opinion, the 7 churches can mean literal churches (at the time of Jesus?) but they can also mean 7 different TYPES of Christians and/or 7 different TYPES of spiritual relationships with the Lord. However, taken together as a WHOLE, one can gather ALL the “grievances” that the Lord Jesus Christ HAS against the 7 churches and take it AS A WHOLE! Just like whatever Jesus Christ APPLAUDS about any of the 7 Churches, one can also likely take THAT as a whole, as well! (HOWEVER, the REWARDS in New Jerusalem — the new heavenly city — for those few REDEEMED by Almighty Yeshua/Jesus Christ  — are going to differ from person to person, someday!)

Jesus Christ says in Matthew 7: 21-23Not 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“.

And in Matthew 7: 13-14, Jesus said: 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 STRAIGHT is the gate, and NARROW is the way, which leadeth unto LIFE [Jesus Christ Almighty], and FEW there be that find it

What’s really, really sad to me is that many of today’s “Christians” automatically assume that they’re gonna spend eternity with Jesus Christ someday and “be saved from Hell/Eternal Condemnation”, as it were. But what Jesus Christ is SAYING in the above 2 passages proclaims that will NOT be the case! For Jesus Christ/Almighty Yeshua says that there will be VERY FEW people that are redeemed by Him. VERY FEW.

So how utterly terrifying would that be, if a “Christian” THOUGHT they were gonna enter into the heavenly city someday called “New Jerusalem”, ONLY to be later turned away and cast into OUTER DARKNESS in the LAKE OF FIRE **FOR ETERNITY** with all the OTHER nonbelievers, scoffers, mockers, etc.? That would be utterly terrifying, INDEED! 

And I can just picture, now……..Christians (right after the Judgement) saying to Jesus Christ the King: “But I went to church every week, I donated to charity, I cast out demons in your name, I increased the church attendance ten-fold, I did this, I did that!” with Jesus Christ just giving them a look of retort AND angered/grieved sadness saying:“I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity”.

On other OTHER hand, I can picture some of the more “humble” ones………the Christians that AREN’T so arrogant in their thinking, that think to themselves………“Man…….the Lord’s done SO MUCH for me, and for Him, I’ve done SO very little, there’s SO MUCH MORE WORK for the Lord that I COULD be doing, the work I’ve done for Him already ISN’T NEARLY enough!” with Jesus Christ the King proudly & joyously saying: “Come, you who are blessed of My Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world” [Matthew 25:34]

And in today’s world, there’s much “discussion” and “viewpoints” and “teachings” on the bible and bible prophecy. I think the Lord purposely allowed it to be set up this way in the Last Days in order to test the hearts, souls and minds. Why? Because He wants to know our true character and rather or not we truly love Him or not.

Remember during the time of the New Testament when Jesus asked Peter THREE TIMES, “Peter, do you love me?” and how Jesus answered the third time, “then feed my sheep”? The Lord Jesus was testing Peter’s character. And if He was testing PETER’S character (his most FAVORITE disciple, or so it SEEMS), you can bet your toosh that Jesus continually tests OUR character! And he HAS to do so in order to “refine” us and “refine our faith”. Because if he DIDN’T continually test us, he’d be just like a P.E. Teacher who let all his children run amok around the gym, with no discipline or supervision! Think about it, folks!

But I think some of the “marker points” He will use to “divide the wheat from the tares” will likely be the following:

1). Does a Christian BELIEVE the bible (front to back) LITERALLY, from Generations to Revelation? 

2). DOES A PERSON LOVE JESUS MORE THAN THEY LOVE THEIR OWN LIVES? ARE THEY WILLING TO DIE FOR JESUS, IF NEED BE?

3). Has a Christian read the entire bible for THEMSELVES (instead of leaning on traditions of man/pastors/priests) and have they hungered and thirsted for righteousness, above all other things?

4). Does a Christian openly accept (or tolerate) behaviors that are CLEARLY SIN in the bible such as divorce, adultery, sodomy/lust, homosexuality, materialism, greed, pride, envy, IDOLATRY, gluttony, abortion, humanism, etc? 

5). Does a Christian try to “earn” their Salvation with “works”, instead of by FAITH?

6). Does a Christian give PRAISE & THANKS/THANKSGIVING to the Lord Jesus Christ continually, where praise is due?

7). Does a Christian think “going to church every week” will save him or her?

8). Does a Christian still worship on a “Paganized Sabbath” (Sunday) and in “Paganized Holidays” (Christmas, Easter, New Years, Valentine’s Day, Halloween) without a care or thought in the world about WHY “today’s Christianity” is so seemingly PAGAN, above all else?

9). Does a Christian HAVE strong faith in Jesus Christ and His Almighty Power?

10). Does a Christian GIVE to others freely, without expecting ANYTHING in return?

11). Does a Christian “hold a grudge” against anyone?

12). Does a Christian feel MAJOR REMORSE over any and all sin in their life? And has a Christian PRAYED FOR FORGIVENESS of such sin? And has a Christian STOPPED DOING said sin(s)?

13). Does a Christian love others more than they love themselves? And does a Christian have any “harsh judgement” in their hearts for any others?

14). Has a Christian boldly stepped out in faith and proclaimed the gospel to others?

15). Does a Christian have a PERSONAL one-on-one/NON-COMMERCIALIZED spiritual relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ? As in, Jesus Christ is closer to them than even their very own bestfriends (much similar to Enoch in the Old Testament)?

16). Has a Christian warned OPEN HOMOSEXUALS/BISEXUALS about the SIN of sodomy and the realities of hell/lake of fire/eternal condemnation?

17). Plus many, many more! 

But one thing I DO know is THIS: The Lord Jesus Christ is trying to prepare HIS BRIDE (“The Church”) for his soon glorious return in the clouds of heaven! That is when he’ll snatch up His Bride, in anticipation for “The Wedding Supper Of The Lamb”, one of the most glorious events in Heaven’s history! 😉 

So please, I ask you, I beg of you, I IMPLORE YOU, and I PLEAD WITH YOU, from the bottom of my hearts and the DEPTHS OF MY SOUL……If you’re not right with Jesus Christ today, then I pray today that you GET RIGHT WITH HIM and DO NOT TARRY! And if you’ve NEVER come to a saving knowledge of Jesus Christ before and/or you’re not a believer in Jesus Christ, then I pray that TODAY is the day of your Salvation in Christ Jesus! 

Time is of the essence! Tomorrow’s not guaranteed! And Eternity is FOREVER! Now is NOT the time to be playing with your Eternal Salvation, folks! Just like now is not the time for “The Church” (as a whole) to be playing games with ITS SALVATION (as a whole). 

The warning call has been sounded all across the board in the name of Almighty Yeshua/Jesus Christ by the Lord’s BIBLICAL servants of 2015. Will YOU listen? Will “I” listen? Will the “U.S. nation – as a whole” listen? And will “The Church” (as a whole) listen? For your sake and for my sake, I sure hope so! Amen. 

The BIBLICAL Jesus/Yeshua Vs. the COUNTERFEIT Jesus/Yeshua

Today’s Christianity is a FAR CRY from what “Christianity” was at the time of Yeshua/Jesus Christ. Today’s Christianity worships a COUNTERFEIT JESUS! Yes………a COUNTERFEIT JESUS…….and here’s why:

CONTERFEIT JESUS WORSHIP:

1). The BIBLICAL Sabbath has been done away with and has been replaced by MORTAL MAN/the Roman Catholic Church to the FIRST day of the week (Sun-day, venerable worship day of the SUN! To say that the Sabbath was changed is to say that God made a mistake when he CREATED the 7th day Sabbath, consecrated it and MADE IT HOLY. And to say/claim that God “made a mistake” with the Sabbath? Well, I’ll let YOU figure it out, folks!)

2). Holidays such as Christmas and Easter actually MOCK Jesus Christ/Yeshua by equating him with things which AREN’T in the bible, such as chocolate bunnies, Easter eggs, adorned christmas tree IDOLS, Santa Claus, and that reduce him to nothing more than a “helpless babe in a manger”, etc. 

3). BIBLICAL holidays that fully and **TRULY** CELEBRATE & HONOR JESUS (such as Passover, Unleavened Bread, Firstfruits, Trumpets, Pentecost, Atonement, Tabernacles) are NO LONGER CELEBRATED *****AT ALL*******! Plus most “Christians” today haven’t even HEARD of them! (Sad, real sad…….)

4). [Catholicism]: Worships the SUN, not **the Son!** And the “Son” they DO worship is NOT the Jesus from the bible but rather, Helios, the Sun god (in the VISUALIZED IDOL form of Jesus!) And pretty much 99% of ALL “Christian churches” have followed suit, without even knowing or realizing it! Hint: those aren’t “halos” you see on Catholic figures but are rather used to represent SUNS!

5). Has a “superiority complex” when it comes to the Jews and claims God/Yeshua is no longer with the Jews OR falsely claims that the Jews don’t need Jesus since they are saved by the Torah……………totally disregards the fact that Jesus was a Jew and considers it a “non-issue” when in reality, the fact that Jesus was a Jew is of CENTRAL IMPORTANCE!

6). WRITES OFF the Old Testament as if it has NO significance, meaning or value and as if it no longer applies, TODAY! Also claims “the church” is a place to GO TO, not to BE! Hint: church isn’t a place we “go to” for we ARE “the church”, each and every single one of us and we’re supposed to BE “the church” within our SPIRIT! Think about it, folks! Hiding behind 4 walls once a week on the false sabbath while in the meantime not concerning oneself with the homeless, the unsaved, etc. Today’s “church model” is NOT biblical!

7). Created several million different SECTS & DENOMINATIONS (Ever wondered WHY that is? certainly they can’t ALL be right!) 

8). Often asks the question “What can Jesus do for ME?”, instead of asking what one can do for Jesus and his heavenly kingdom, etc. 

CONCLUSION: Today’s “modern institutionalized Christianity” worships a COUNTERFEIT Jesus on a FALSE MAN-MADE *CATHOLIC* SABBATH with a FALSE/PAGANIZED GOSPEL that’s absolutely NOTHING like the gospel that was around during the time of Jesus Christ HIMSELF!

“There IS no such thing as sin since Jesus payed for our sins!”, “sprinkling baptism”, “baptism delay”, “Sunday sabbath”, “Paganized holidays” and “once saved, always saved” are the prominent teachings in Christian churches today and those teachings JUST. AREN’T. BIBLICAL…..PERIOD!!!!!!

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

TRUE, BIBLICAL JESUS/YESHUA WORSHIP: (And remember, place words of Jesus over words of Paul)

1). Worships on the TRUE 7th-day Biblical Sabbath (notice that Jesus and his disciples kept the 7th day Sabbath during the times of New Testament).

2). Does NOT celebrate or partake in any PAGAN HOLIDAYS such as Saturnalia/Christmas, Februar/Ester/Easter, Samhain/Halloween, etc.

3). CELEBRATES JESUS/YESHUA FULLY in the biblical feasts of Passover, Unleavened Bread, Firstfruits, Pentecost, Atonement, Trumpets, Tabernacles. There’s also 2 Minor Feasts of Purim & Chanukah).

4). Worships Jesus Christ Almighty/Yeshua who CREATED the Sun, thereby worshiping the creator and not the “created”.

5). EMBRACES the Jewishness of Jesus and the Old Testament and combines it WITH the New Testament since God/Yeshua is the same yesterday, today and forevermore, he’s EVERLASTING!

6). EMBRACES the Old Testament and realizes that the New Testament is just a CONTINUATION of the Old Testament, with Jesus Christ/Yeshua at its head, the chief cornerstone. Jesus/Yeshua actually made “pre-flesh” appearances in the Old Testament: these are known as “Christophanies” (look it up).

7). Is ONE body, ONE church, ONE gospel, and ONE Jesus/Yeshua who NEVER CHANGES; IS EVERLASTING from the End to the Beginning…..Realizes that Revelation is the CENTRAL CONCLUSION of the bible and that the bible (Old and New Testament) is ONE COMPLETE TESTAMENT OF GOD/JESUS ALMIGHY/YESHUA!

CONCLUSION: Messianic Judaism/Jewish-roots Christianity worships the TRUE, BIBLICAL YESHUA/JESUS CHRIST ALMIGHTY, on the TRUE 7th day biblical (“God-sanctified”) Sabbath, with the TRUE gospel of Yeshua/Jesus Christ Almighty with the TRUE “church model”. It embraces BIBLICAL PRACTICES such as full water immersion baptism, baptism IMMEDIATELY upon first believing, BIBLICAL HOLIDAYS, repentance of sins, fasting, prayer, and being saved by grace through faith + obedience.

However, also please remember that Almighty Yeshua/Jesus Christ calls us to do HIS will in our lives, as well…. 

Remember that Jesus said in John 14:15 “If ye love me, keep my commandments” and in Matthew 7:21 “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”.

Therefore, which Jesus Christ/Yeshua do you serve? The biblical one — the one displayed in both the Old AND New Testament? Or the NON-BIBLICAL one? Think about that long and hard, folks! Mankind has always had their “traditions”. But do their “traditions” line up with the bible? If not, WHY? You will NEVER see the Easter bunny and Santa Claus in the bible. In fact, the Easter bunny and Santa Claus make a TOTAL and complete MOCKERY out of Jesus Christ/Yeshua of the bible. Did you know that, people? Do you CARE?

In bringing all this to light, I hope you will join me in worshiping the TRUE Jesus Christ Almighty/Yeshua of the bible and put away ALL things Pagan! And that includes the FALSE CHRISTIAN PAGAN holidays such as Christmas, Easter, Halloween, etc., as like I said, those holidays only serve to MOCK Jesus Christ/Yeshua! Don’t believe me? Do the research!!!!!!

And please, please do the research on the TRUE history of Christianity and Pagan Christian holidays before it’s too late. Because soon, battle lines will be drawn (spiritual battle lines). And what side you’re “pegged” on will depend on what side you LIVE ON. And what side you LIVE ON will depend on what side you BELIEVE ON. And what side you believe on will depend on which side you ABIDE ON.

We’re humans, we have free will. We can either CHOOSE to believe in AND follow the bible (the ENTIRE bible, not just HALF of it, be it Old Testament or New Testament) or we can choose that our own Paganized MANMADE TRADITIONS (FALSE Sun-day Sabbath, Christmas, Easter) are far more important to us than God/Jesus’s traditions/decrees (BIBLICAL 7th day Sabbath, Passover, Unleavened Bread, etc.) The choice is up to you. But don’t say I didn’t warn you.

We know from the bible that there is a “spirit of Anti-Christ” roaming over the land. The Devil is like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour. First, Satan established the Catholic Church based on Babylonian sun worship, repackaged. Piece of pie. Then he USED the Catholic Church to PROFANE the true gospel of the everlasting God/Jesus/Almighty Yeshua. No problem. Then he FURTHER used the Catholic Church to introduce a FAKE GOSPEL ***and*** to severely persecute the Jews/Christians who DID follow and adhere to the REAL GOSPEL OF JESUS CHRIST/YESHUA. No problem at’tall.

Then he EVEN FURTHER used the Catholic Church to capitulate his FALSE GOSPEL TO DECEIVE THE MASSES and used the Catholic Church’s power of intimidation to further deceive pretty much ALL if not most Christian “churches” to worship on the FALSE SABBATH with a FALSE GOSPEL and a FALSE/PAGANIZED JESUS. But did Satan stop THERE? NNNNOOOOOOOOO…………He took it much, much further. He created SECTS AND DENOMINATIONS. He gutted the AKJV and KJV to create the PROFANE BIBLE VERSIONS of NIV, NSB, NKJV, etc.

And not only that but this FALSE JESUS GOSPEL MODEL will be used to FURTHER DECEIVE THE MASSES into someday soon accepting the Anti-Christ. Evangelicals often teach “Jesus can come at any minute”. And soon, a “Jesus imposter” will come upon the Earth. He will likely be of Middle-Eastern descent and will probably even look like Jesus or an Old Testament prophet. But he WILL NOT be the Jesus of the bible. And BECAUSE many of these Evangelical Christians believe Jesus can come at any minute (The “Imminent Rapture theory”), they’ll have NO PROBLEMS believing that this IMPOSTER JESUS is the real Jesus!

And Jesus Christ/Yeshua HIMSELF warned us about this in the bible:

Then if any man shall say unto you, Lo, here is Christ, or there; believe it not. For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect. Wherefore if they shall say unto you, Behold, he is in the desert; go not forth: behold, he is in the secret chambers; believe it not. Immediately after the tribulation of those days shall the sun be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, and the stars shall fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens shall be shaken: And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven: and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory. And he shall send his angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they shall gather together his elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other” – Matthew 24: 23~31

And INDEED, many “false Christs” have ALREADY come to *deceive many*. But what will happen when the ULTIMATE FAKE JESUS (THE ANTI-CHRIST) arrives on the scene?

Many people (specifically Christians) arrogantly think that they WON’T be deceived by such the ULTIMATE FALSE JESUS/ANTICHRIST FIGURE. However, if they’re in a Sunday-worshiping “evangelical church” that worships in/partakes of Christmas, Easter, Lent/Good Friday, etc. that reads the NEWER bible versions such as NIV, NKJV, NSV, etc. and that’s DONE AWAY WITH the biblical holidays of Passover, Unleavened Bread, etc., they’ve ALREADY been deceived!

Therefore, they’ll be “easy pickins” for the Devil AND **THE ANTICHRIST** (**THE ULTIMATE FAKE/COUNTERFEIT JESUS**) that comes to arrive on the scene. And the book of Revelation in the New Testament gives some VERY dire warnings about those who take the mark of the beast. This FAKE JESUS will require everyone, man, woman and child to take a mark in their right hand or forehead in order to be able to buy or sell.

And oddly enough, ALL world religions are awaiting a “Messiah figure”. The Muslims are waiting on the 12th Iman or the Madhi. The Buddhists are awaiting the 5th Buddha or whatever. The Jews (as a whole) rejected Jesus Christ/Almighty Yeshua as their Messiah and are “still waiting on their Messiah” (no joke). The Brahmas/Hindus are ALSO waiting on a “Messiah figure”, as are some Indigenous peoples awaiting “The Serpent god” or Quetzalcoatl reincarnation. Just like Christians are awaiting the ANTICHRIST (the FALSE JESUS figure IN PLACE OF CHRIST).

Therefore, I submit to you that THE ANTICHRIST will come as a “Messiah figure” TO THE WORLD! And all those whose names aren’t recorded in the Lamb’s Book of Life (reference: book of Revelation) WILL be deceived by this figure and take his mark! And those who take his mark will later be burned & torchured alive FOR ETERNITY in EVERLASTING FIRE!

I believe that the Anti-christ will be of Greek and/or Middle Eastern descent and look like Jesus Christ himself (though I could be wrong). The REASON why I think this is because Satan’s goal is to deceive many. Jesus Christ is the most talked about figure in history. Therefore, it makes sense to me that THAT’S the type of form or prototype that the Antichrist would choose to appear in. Satan KNOWS that evangelical Christians are waiting for Jesus. Satan KNOWS that Muslims highly regard Jesus AND are waiting on their “Muslim Messiah”. Satan KNOWS that ALL of the world’s religions are awaiting a “Messiah figure”. And since Satan’s goal is to DECEIVE MANY, what better “disguise” than the appearance/form of “Jesus Christ”? Think about it, folks!

But it all boils down to a basic question, really. Do you worship the PAGAN Jesus talked about in today’s modern-day churches or do you worship the HEBREW Jesus talked about in the bible, Old AND New Testaments? Because remember that the ENTIRE bible is a COMPLETE testament of Jesus Christ Almighty/Yeshua, nothing more, nothing less.

 

 

 

 

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

  1. “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
  2. “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
  3. “And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity” – Matthew 7:23
  4. “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
  5. “Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it” – Matthew 7:14
  6. “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!

 

The Power Of Starting Over On A Fresh, Clean Slate….

We’ve all said and done things in our lives that we regret and that we possibly hate ourselves for, looking back…..things in our lives that we wish we NEVER would’ve said or done or that we should’ve done DIFFERENTLY.

Well, with Jesus Christ, we CAN start all over and we CAN have our slate wiped clean and start a new life.

But first, we must have an INTERNAL change within our mind, heart, body and spirit. We have to regret all our misdeeds/”sins” in our life SO MUCH that we’re willing to do almost anything to change them.

What’s sin? Sin is transgression of the law (of God). Ever stolen anything? Ever lusted after a woman (men) or a man (ladies) that you weren’t married to? Ever told a lie? Said the Lord’s name in vain? That makes you a thief, an adulterer, a liar and a blasphemer and that’s just FOUR of the 10 commandments!

But that is where Jesus Christ comes in. The prophesied Jewish Messiah talked about in the Old Testament and the only true begotten Son of God, HE gave his very own LIFE during the crucifixion & shed his very own holy blood, just SO mankind could be FORGIVEN for their sins AND assured a spot in Eternal NEW JERUSALEM someday! And there is NO greater love than that, people!

Jesus Christ loves us all SO MUCH, that he was more than willing to DIE for us on the cross, just so WE could be forgiven of our sins and just so WE could have a way to spend ETERNITY WITH GOD IN NEW JERUSALEM someday. And so again, there is NO greater love than that!

3 days later after Jesus Christ was crucified, he rose from the dead (just like he told his disciples he would). [Google the “Shroud of Turin”] And 40 days after that, Jesus Christ (in front of the apostles and others) ascended back up to heaven to be on the right hand throne of God, the heavenly Father. But don’t just take MY word for it. See for yourselves!

http://factreal.wordpress.com/2009/04/13/nonchristians-prove-jesus-resurrection/

Jesus Christ was God in the flesh and he proved it…..not only in the bible and to his disciples and various non-Christian crowds after he rose from the dead just 3 days later after he died on the cross, but to myself as well (during a near-death experience).

The thing about Jesus Christ is that he doesn’t care WHO you are or WHAT you’ve done so far in your life. You CAN be forgiven for all your sins, just like you CAN start over a brand new life in him!

It doesn’t matter if you’re a stripper, bank robber, homeless, a drug addicted person, a practicing homosexual. No sin is too bad to be forgiven of, save for blasphemy of the Holy Spirit: (many bible scholars believe that blasphemy of the Holy Spirit is to claim that Jesus Christ got his power from Satan but it can also likely mean several other things, too, such as not believing that Jesus Christ was the Son of God and DYING in that sin of unbelief, etc.)

Jesus Christ can take what is UNRIGHTEOUS in a person and turn it around and make that person CLEAN by teaching that person how to OVERCOME their unrighteousness and become a righteous person in his heavenly site! Jesus Christ can set a person FREE from their sins and their failures and their addictions.

Whatever you’re going through in life, Jesus Christ has a solution and an answer. But you got to TRUST JESUS CHRIST to change your life. But you must TRUST HIM. Meaning that you must first of all BELIEVE that Jesus Christ IS the only begotten Son of God AND that he died for your sins AND that he has the power to change you from within. And once you believe in the power of the Lord and pray for the Lord Jesus Christ to change you, he will change you. He will also give you the gift of the Holy Spirit (the spirit of truth/spirit of spiritual discernment that will let you know what things are truly of God and what things are NOT of God).

And as soon as you fully believe in the Lord Jesus Christ beyond ALL reasonable doubt, you must get immediately baptized in the name of Jesus Christ for the ceremonial “washing away of sins”. You don’t have to do it publicly or by a priest. You can do it in a swimming pool, river, lake or your very own bathtub filled with water (because remember that it must be a FULL IMMERSION baptism, according to the bible and NOT a “sprinkling”).

You must then also (to the very best of your ability) obey all of Jesus’s commandments in the bible (including the 10 commandments, the 7th-Day biblical Sabbath (because remember that the “Sunday Sabbath” seen today is NOT biblical at all), the 7 holy feasts of the Lord (Passover, Pentecost, Tabernacles, etc.), Sermon on the Mount, etc.) and preach the gospel to others to everyone/anyone who’ll listen.

Many Christians today think that the 7th-Day Sabbath was done away with and also that the Lord’s 7 Annual Feasts were done away with the New Testament as well. But did you know that Jesus Christ and his disciples NOT ONLY participated in the 7th-Day Sabbath (Friday sundown to Saturday sundown) but also in the 7 Annual Feasts of the Lord (Passover, Pentecost, Tabernacles, etc.) as well? [Some bible scholars even suggest he ALSO participated in the 2 “Minor” Jewish Feasts (Purim & Festival of Lights/Hanukah).

Yeshua/Jesus Christ Himself even said in Matthew 5:17-18 “Think not that I am come to destroy the law & the prophets. For 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”. And we know this won’t happen (the first heaven and Earth passing away, that is) until Revelation, chapter 21:1-2! 

But upon believing in and getting baptized in the name of Yeshua/Jesus Christ, you will become a new creature in the Lord and start a NEW LIFE in him! Everything you’ve done in your life so far will not matter, anymore. The only thing that’ll matter from the MOMENT you become saved in Yeshua/Jesus Christ to the moment you die in this life is where you stand with Yeshua/Jesus Christ. And where you stand with Jesus Christ is determined by how you LIVE for Jesus Christ….

For example, do you believe in Jesus Christ? Have you accepted him as Lord & Savior? Have you prayed for forgiveness of your sins? Have you given up your sins and stopped doing them? Have you become baptized in the name of Jesus Christ? Do you witness about Jesus Christ and Salvation to others? Do you do all the things that the Lord Jesus Christ tells you to do (such as obey the 10 commandments and Sermon on the Mount teachings in Matthew5-7 as well as several OTHER New Testament commands? Some possible examples (depending on what the Lord needs from you at the time) might be things like “write a letter of apology to this person, go witness to that person, give the coat off your back to that homeless person over there, donate your leftover food to the food bin”, etc.

Are you in that place in your life where, if you were to die today or tonight, you’d know for 100% sure beyond all reasonable doubt that you’d go to eternal NEW JERUSALEM someday and not the fires of hell? If you are NOT 100% sure, then it’s time for you to examine yourself and your life and pray to the Lord Jesus Christ to reveal to you about anything that’s holding you back from him. Cause lets face it…..5 minutes of sin is not worth eternal condemnation in the fire (“flames of torment”).

One of these days, the Earth and everything in it is gonna pass away someday (including all the material things and wealth). The Lord said in Isaiah 65:17 “Behold, I create a new heavens and a new Earth”.

And all of mankind will be judged for their actions (rather good or bad) by Jesus Christ. Will YOU stand before the Lord Jesus Christ someday on the Day of Judgment upon the Earth and say to him “I’m sorry Lord…during my Earthly life,  my sin was MUCH more important to me than YOU, I don’t want to go to eternal punishment in the “fire that never quenches” now, please forgive me?”

That won’t fly with the Lord Jesus Christ!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The Lord Jesus Christ gives people many, many, MANY chances throughout their lifetimes to change their lives around and to hear the message of the gospel/be saved from their sins! And so IF by the end of a person’s life, a person hasn’t accepted the Lord Jesus Christ as their Lord & Savior/asked Jesus Christ for forgiveness of their sins with a “righteous repentance” in their mind, heart, body and spirit, that is NOT God’s fault!

Now that begs of question. If people know AHEAD OF TIME that Jesus Christ is the ONLY way to New Jerusalem, the ONLY one true God, and the ONLY way to have forgiveness of sins and the ONLY way to be spared from God’s eternal wrath in the fire, why do they still choose to reject him? Why do they STILL choose to go to “eternal condemnation” even when they know that the place of eternal condemnation is going to be an awful, torturous, gruesome place FOR ETERNITY? Do they REALLY think that Jesus Christ will spare THEM just because they donated to charity, or never killed anyone and that sort’ve thing?

Do they REALLY think that Jesus Christ is a “unrepentant-sin-accepting” type of God? And/or that he’s the type of God to be “sweet-talked” to or to let sin go UNPUNISHED? THINK AGAIN, PEOPLE! Jesus Christ is a righteous, holy, and PURE God! And he lets NO sin into NEW JERUSALEM/the eternal kingdom. None. A person’s “good deeds” or money or good looks will NOT save them from the holy, divine wrath of God!

Yet, many people out there think: “well, Jesus Christ is such a holy, righteous God, there’s NO WAY he’d accept me!” Again, wrong….Jesus Christ will save and accept ANYONE who truly calls upon his name, prays for forgiveness of their sins, repents of their sins, gets baptized in his heavenly name, preaches the gospel to others, obey his commandments in the bible, trusts him & truly abides in him by the way they LIVE for him.

I got a short parable for you. Luke 18:9-14: And he spake this parable unto certain which trusted in themselves that they were righteous, and despised others: Two men went up into the temple to pray; the one a Pharisee, and the other a publican. The Pharisee stood and prayed thus with himself, God, I thank thee, that I am not as other men are, extortioners, unjust, adulterers, or even as this publican. I fast twice in the week, I give tithes of all that I possess. And the publican, standing afar off, would not lift up so much as his eyes unto heaven, but smote upon his breast, saying, God be merciful to me a sinner. I tell you, this man went down to his house justified rather than the other: for every one that exalteth himself shall be abased; and he that humbleth himself shall be exalted”. 

The tax collector was justified before God/Jesus and NOT the Pharisee. Why? Because not only did the tax collector have the faith and desire for Jesus in his life, but he TRUSTED Jesus Christ to change him from within and cleanse his spirit and his ways. The Pharisee just basically bragged about how “holy” he was and lacked a true spiritual relationship with Jesus Christ. The Pharisee became one of those in the group of people which Jesus says: “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 7:22-23]

But to the tax collector and all repentant sinners, Jesus Christ will say: “His lord said unto him, Well done, thou good and faithful servant: thou hast been faithful over a few things, I will make thee ruler over many things: enter thou into the joy of thy lord” – [Matthew 25:21]

But basically, it doesn’t matter what you’ve done so far in your life. It doesn’t matter if you’ve robbed 5 banks or 75. It doesn’t matter if you’re currently addicted to drugs or alcohol. It doesn’t matter if you’re a stripper or a drug lord. Jesus Christ was crucified on the cross for ALL of mankind’s sins! And no sin is too great for the Lord Jesus Christ to forgive, save for blasphemy of the Holy Spirit! He can take what is UNRIGHTEOUS in a person and help change them into a RIGHTEOUS PERSON! 

Jesus Christ will save ANYONE who truly calls upon his name from the depths of their being. No prayer will go unanswered for those who really, truly pray to get to know Jesus Christ and that means the prayer from the depths of their spirit!

But if you want to get to know Jesus Christ and have him save you FROM YOUR SINS and help you overcome your sins and your addictions, you must pray for Jesus Christ to save you and you must do so, NOW! (And believe the prayer with your whole entire mind, heart, and spirit). Every SECOND of your life spent without Jesus Christ leads you one step closer to hell and/or eternal condemnation. And like I said, death comes to us all. We NEVER know when we’re gonna die. All those who die without Jesus Christ in their lives go to eternal condemnation in the flames for eternity. So please don’t be one of those people, folks!

If you’re an atheist/agnostic that’s having trouble believing in Jesus Christ or God or the concept of a God, then I would ask you to PRAY to believe (but mean the prayer 100% in your heart) and also check out the following website that lists SEVERAL ancient historical non-Christian sources which confirm Jesus’s crucifixion, resurrection and consequent ascension to heaven.

And again, I pray that each and every soul who reads this will become saved from their sins in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ before it’s too late. Amen.

How to Get Saved and STAY “Saved”…(UPDATED)

Someone once coined the phrase “once saved, always saved”. But we know from the word of God that that teaching is FALSE! Why? Lets examine the biblical evidence.

Jesus said in John 14:15 (New Testament, book of John, chapter 14, verse 15) “if you love me, keep my commandments”.

And that doesn’t JUST mean the 10 commandments in the bible. No, it goes much deeper than that. Jesus Christ was also talking about his teachings on the Sermon on the Mount (New Testament, book of Matthew, chapters 5-7), as well as several other New Testament teachings, along with all the “biblically sound” things the Holy Spirit tells you *specifically* to go do NOW in our lives, such as “donate all your leftover food/clothes to the poor”, “talk to your atheist friend about me”, “go witness to people on Youtube, WordPress, Facebook, etc. about me”, “get rid of all your books/movies/music that doesn’t glorify me, Jesus Christ Almighty”, etc.

In other words, the saying “once saved, always saved” is a lie from Satan! Cause lets not forget that Jesus ALSO said in Matthew 7:21 (New Testament, book of Matthew, chapter 7, verse 21) not everyone who says to me ‘Lord, Lord,’ shall enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of my father in heaven.

In other words, Jesus Christ was  more or less saying in the bible that not EVERY single person who cries out to him or that claims to believe in him or calls themselves Christian will enter through the gates of the city of New Jerusalem, someday. ONLY those people that believe in him AND do what he says (which is the will of the Father in heaven) shall enter through the gates of the heavenly city called New Jerusalem, which will be created and brought forth, down from heaven.

But lets go to the book of Matthew where Jesus talks about JUST how difficult it is to enter into eternal paradise with him.

“Enter ye in at the straight gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and there are many who go in by it”  Matthew 7:13 (Matthew, chapter 7, verse 13)

“Because strait is the gate , and narrow is the way , which leadeth unto life and there are few who find it” Matthew 7:14 (Matthew, chapter 7, verse 14)

So in other words, in today’s world and society, anyone that worships or believes in Jesus Christ is considered “uncool”. So because of this, very few people will decide to worship Jesus Christ & come to him for salvation/forgiveness of their sins. Most people will try to “fit in” and do what everyone else is doing……..to try to fit in with the world and the times of today. They will take the “broad path” in life and chase after unrighteous things such as money, fame, fortune, materialism, lust, greed, pride, ambition, humanism, consumerism, etc.

However, a few SELECT people will decide TO worship Jesus Christ and accept his free gifts of salvation & everlasting life. But since the world is so seemingly “anti-Christian” these days, it will be very hard for these people to follow the way of Jesus Christ. They will be laughed at, mocked, ridiculed, put down, and possibly persecuted for their faith. Their way to God’s “truth” will be seen as “uncommon” or “narrow-minded”. Not to mention that many will fall victim to false doctrines in the churches, etc. And because of this, many will abandon & fall away from the faith in the Last Days (which we are currently living in).

On the other hand, you will have many people proclaiming themselves to be “Christians”, but yet, still don’t TRULY accept the Lord Jesus’s/Yeshua’s eternal truth. They are the Christians who still **knowingly** (even after being shown “the truth”) worship on the FALSE *Catholic/man-made* SUN-DAY SABBATH instead of the TRUE, BIBLICAL SATURDAY SABBATH (Friday Sundown to Saturday Sundown). Please remember that a Jewish day begins at sundown the night before…Also please remember that the Lord not only CREATED the 7th-Day Sabbath as a day of rest from all activity but THAT the 7th-Day Sabbath was also used as a “sign” of the covenant between he and his people!

[Side note: will the Lord Jesus judge the people who adhered to the Sunday sabbath and man’s traditions, UNKNOWINGLY? Well, we know that the 7th day Sabbath & the Lord’s 7 Annual Feasts (EVEN during Jesus’s time AND partaken of by Jesus & his disciples) ARE in the bible……so….? It’s not really something that I’d recommend that people be “taking chances” with, in regards to their eternal salvation….So please, people! Don’t take any chances, here! Do things the bible’s way and not by “tradition’s way”! [As for all the poor folks out there that adhere to mankind’s traditions “unknowingly”, I’ll let the Lord Jesus Christ be the judge!]

They are the Christians who seek to find “church” in a BUILDING [which is a FALSE, NON-BIBLICAL SYSTEM, by the way, for remember: “church” is NOT a building you GO TO, per say, for remember that each believer in Christ IS “the church”, according to the bible….although the bible DOES mention that we’re still supposed to assemble, as believers……so perhaps small “house churches” should start coming about, in these Last Days?], then forget God the rest of the week…..

They are the Christians who speak in Jesus’s name, then turn around and live in total and COMPLETE darkness, as if Jesus Christ didn’t truly mean anything to them/lukewarm Christians. They are the Christians who totally disregard the Old Testament altogether AS IF it doesn’t matter or doesn’t apply to us, TODAY (especially the 10 commandments). They are the Christians who say “who CARES about the Lord’s 7 Annual Feasts or CELEBRATING THE 7TH-DAY SABBATH, those are JEWISH HOLIDAYS ONLY, and they don’t even apply to us anymore!”

But the brutal reality is that the Lord’s 7 Annual Feasts + 7th-Day Sabbath apply JUST AS MUCH TODAY as they did during the times of the Old AND New Testaments! For Jesus and his apostles celebrated ALL SEVEN of them (all 7 of the Lord’s Annual Feasts, that is), INCLUDING the 2 “minor” Feasts, with Jesus teaching in the Synagogues on the 7th Day Sabbath as well. Cause the bible says Jesus taught on the Sabbath. Back in biblical times, the Sabbath was NOT on Sun-day! And in the bible, Jesus *specifically* instructs his apostles to follow what he had shown them.

{And please remember that UNTIL the Lord shed his COMPLETE eternal truth on me, I USED to be one of those “lukewarm Christians” who tried to find “church” in a BUILDING, instead of in a body of believers, whom previously followed mankind’s traditions (Easter, Halloween) instead of God’s biblical traditions (Passover, Tabernacles,etc.) and also of whom celebrated on the Sun-day Sabbath, instead of the Saturday Sabbath. Yes, I had had a N.D.E. when I was little where I met Jesus face to face but I was not raised in the Christian Church, nor did I have anything to go by but ONE children’s illustrated bible. When I was 15 and got ahold of an actual KJV bible (church-version/non-illustrated), I was left with more questions than answers. 

Why? Because no-one was ever really there in my life to teach me THE TRUTH about these things! The only so-called Christian friend I had growing up was, for the most part, Catholic (and the Catholic Church, as you all know, is NOT biblical!) My learning about the THE TRUTH about these things only came after MUCH prayer and YEARS of research and introspection and this deep feeling within the gut of my SOUL that something about “modern day Christianity” and the way it was practiced was WRONG and didn’t line up with the bible! So please believe me when I say my heart GRIEVES over those Christians who don’t yet know the COMPLETE TRUTH about these things! I pray that the Lord will be most merciful to them and give them another chance/more chances to learn THE TRUTH before it’s too late!}  

However, BECAUSE mainstream Christianity has strayed away from its Jewish heritage, there will be VERY FEW Christians who attempt to even learn about these 7 Annual Feasts and the TRUE, BIBLICAL 7TH-DAY SABBATH (Friday sundown to Saturday sundown) and how and why to celebrate them. They’ll be too busy celebrating in the PAGAN-ORIGINATED holidays such as Christmas and Easter and won’t even blink or think twice about what the Word of God says, concerning holidays.

(And by the way, did you know that God’s people will STILL be celebrating his holy, divine Feasts in the Millennial Kingdom, specifically The Feast of Tabernacles? So why would he require the Jews to celebrate them in the Old Testament, then tell Christians they didn’t have to celebrate them in the New Testament [nevermind the fact that Jesus and his disciples celebrated all 7 of them, plus the two “minor” feasts], and then once again command ALL to celebrate them during the times of the Millennial Kingdom?

Answer: He wouldn’t. The problem isn’t that they are “Jewish feasts”, the problem is that they are “BIBLICAL FEASTS” and nearly every Christian here in America today has totally disregarded them & disqualified them from their lives! And while many of them don’t know any better, those that do and STILL continue to disregard them are gonna be victims of God’s Wrath!!)

Remember that Jesus said in Matthew 5:17-18 “Think not that I am come to destroy the Law or the prophets; I am not come to destroy the prophets 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”.

In other words, Jesus is saying in this passage that though all the “temple ordinances” and “animal sacrifices” no longer applied since Jesus Christ himself BECAME the temple, that the Lord’s 7 Annual Feasts DO still apply (as Jesus Christ was “revealed” or “soon to be revealed” in EVERY ONE of these Feasts (which is WHY they still apply to us, today) and that the “law” of the 10 commandments won’t be abolished until ALL is fulfilled.

And the first heaven and Earth won’t pass away until around the time of Revelation, chapter 21:1-2! (And the REASON the “law” will be abolished around the time of Revelation 21-22 is because the law will no longer be needed, as all evil will be purged from the world. All that will be left is the saints of God/Jesus Christ, God/Jesus Christ, God the Heavenly Father, The Holy Spirit and his angels and heavenly hosts).

Therefore, Jesus Christ will test the hearts, the souls and the minds to see who really loves him and serves him and who doesn’t. That’s **WHY** the way to LIFE (which means, the way to Eternal Life & Salvation through Jesus Christ) is NARROW and HARD TO FIND and why there are FEW who find it. FEW.

“So how do I get saved?” one might ask. Simple. It is an 8-part process, as follows:

1. Believe in Jesus Christ and that he is the ONLY true son of God/God in the flesh and that he came and died on the cross for the free gift of salvation/forgiveness of mankind’s sins & everlasting life and also that he resurrected from the dead 3 days later and then ascended back to heaven 40 days later (Note: if you don’t believe in Jesus Christ already, you can always PRAY to believe. But you must mean the prayer with your heart, soul and mind…..otherwise, the Lord will not reveal himself to you).

2. Get baptized (FULL WATER IMMERSION) in the name of Jesus Christ IMMEDIATELY UPON VERY FIRST BELIEVING IN HIM! (Not only is baptism COMMANDED in the bible 7+ times, but it is supposed to represent the ceremonial “washing away of sins” and one way by which we receive the FREE GIFTS of the Holy Spirit & Everlasting Life; remember that the Holy Spirit is the spirit of truth and the very thing that’ll tell you “this is of God, this is NOT of God”, “Yeshua” (Jesus’s Hebrew/Aramaic name), etc. Also please remember that the early Christians in times of Jesus didn’t prolong baptism: they got baptized IMMEDIATELY upon believing in Him! (Which no doubt made their baptism(s) all the more powerful!) 

3. Accept Jesus Christ as Lord & Savior & thank him for giving his very LIFE during the crucifixion for forgiveness of your sins.

4. Acknowledge your sins and pray for forgiveness of your sins.

5. Repent of your sins. That means to give them up and stop doing them. Stop doing the things that are displeasing to God such as lying, stealing, drinking, gambling, having sex outside of marriage, participating in witchcraft, etc.

6. Continue to read the bible and pray and abide in the Lord’s ways. CONTINUE living a life that is PLEASING to be God by following the 10 commandments (as well as all other New Testament teachings given by Jesus, especially his teachings from Sermon the Mount in Matthew chapters5-7). Also pray a “sin check prayer” continually. “Lord, if there’s anything holding me back from you, please reveal it to me”. And then, if the Lord reveals sin to you, repent of it IMMEDIATELY! Don’t wait!

7. Go out and preach the gospel (the “good news”) to others. Remember that Jesus Christ commanded us in Matthew 28:19 “Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit”

8. FORSAKE **ALL** THINGS PAGAN (INCLUDING PAGAN-ORIGINATED HOLIDAYS WHICH AREN’T EVEN MENTIONED IN THE BIBLE, BY THE WAY) AND START CELEBRATING THE TRUE, BIBLICAL 7TH DAY SABBATH AND 7 ANNUAL FEASTS OF THE LORD, OUTLINED IN LEVITICUS 23 IN THE OLD TESTAMENT AND VARIOUS PASSAGES IN THE **NEW TESTAMENT**. REMEMBER THAT THE NEW TESTAMENT IS ACTUALLY A *CONTINUATION* OF THE OLD TESTAMENT, MINUS THE ANIMAL SACRIFICES/TEMPLE ORDINANCES SINCE JESUS *BECAME* THE SACRIFICE!

And once again, Matthew 5:17-18 states: “Think not that I am come to destroy the Law or the prophets; I am not come to destroy the prophets 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”. 

Some people might preach on a street corner, while others may preach through writing or Youtube videos. God gave each of us unique gifts in different ways. And we are to use those gifts to glorify the Lord God/Jesus Christ in the heavens!

And once we are at a time in our life where we are 100% “right with God/Jesus Christ”, we must CONTINUE serving Jesus Christ WITH ALL OUR MIGHT, until the day we die. That is the ONLY way we will have 100% assurance of salvation/entrance into eternal Paradise with Jesus Christ. For grace without works is dead, just as works without grace is dead, as well.

I pray that each and every soul who reads this will not only GET saved in the name of Jesus Christ but also STAY saved in the name of Jesus Christ/Yeshua. Amen.
