The 7th-Day Sabbath (Saturday): A SIGN of God’s Covenant!

Many “Christian” churches today worship on Sunday, the FIRST day of the week! To many Christians, that is their “Sabbath!” But is that the CORRECT biblical Sabbath? Let us examine:

And I gave them my statutes, and shewed them my judgments, which if a man do, he shall even live in them. Moreover also I gave them MY sabbaths, TO BE A SIGN between me and them, that they might know that I am the Lord that sanctify them” – [Ezekiel 20: 11-12]

I am the Lord your God; walk in my statutes, and keep my judgments, and do them; And hallow MY sabbaths; and THEY SHALL BE A SIGN between me and you, that ye may know that I am the Lord your God – [Ezekiel 20:1 9-20]

“For in six days the Lord made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that in them is, and rested the seventh day: wherefore the Lord blessed the sabbath day, and hallowed it

– [Exodus 20:11]

“Speak thou also unto the children of Israel, saying, Verily my sabbaths ye shall keep: for it is a sign between me and you throughout your generations; that ye may know that I am the Lord that doth sanctify you” – [Exodus 31:13]

“Wherefore the children of Israel shall keep the sabbath, to observe the sabbath throughout their generationsfor a PERPETUAL COVENANT” – [Exodus 31:16]

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

Hhhmm……There seems to be a SEVERE inconsistency between what the BIBLE says and what “the church” says, regarding the “Biblical Sabbath”, so who’s right? To get a more clearer picture, lets examine some quotes about WHY “the church” worships on Sunday, the FIRST day of the week, instead of Saturday, the 7th day of the week, for some more clues:

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

[Source: http://amazingdiscoveries.org/S-deception-Sabbath_Sunday_Catholic_Church]

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 created 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“.

Catholic Priest T. Enright, CSSR, Kansas City, MO:

It was the holy Catholic Church that changed the day of rest from Saturday to Sunday, the 1st day of the week. And it not only compelled all to keep Sunday, but at the Council of Laodicea, AD 364, anathematized those who kept the Sabbath and urged all persons to labor on the 7th day under penalty of anathema.

Catholic Priest T. Enright, CSSR, lecture at Hartford, KS, Feb 18, 1884::

“I have repeatedly offered $1000 to any one who can furnish any proof from the Bible that Sunday is the day we are bound to keep…The Bible says, “Remember the Sabbath day to keep it holy,” but the Catholic Church says, “No, keep the first day of the week,” and the whole world bows in obedience”.

Cardinal John Newman, An Essay on the Development of Christian Doctrine (London: Basil Montague Pickering, 1878): 373::

The use of temples, and these dedicated to particular saints, and ornamented on occasions with branches of trees; incense, lamps, and candles; votive offerings on recovery from illness; holy water; asylums; holydays and seasons…are ALL of pagan origin and sanctified by their adoption into the Church.:

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”. [Note: Vicar of God means “Son of God”, the same title that JESUS has!]

American Catholic Quarterly Review (January 1883):

“Sunday…is purely a creation of the Catholic Church”.

Catholic American Sentinel (June 1893):

“Sunday…It is a law of the Catholic Church alone…”

“The Question Box,” The Catholic Universe Bulletin (August 14, 1942): 4:

“The (Catholic) Church changed the observance of the Sabbath to Sunday by right of the divine, infallible authority given to her by her Founder, Jesus Christ. The Protestant claiming the Bible to be the only guide of faith, has no warrant for observing Sunday. In this matter, the Seventh-day Adventist is the only consistent Protestant.”

NOTE: This change from Saturday to Sunday Sabbath was prophesied about in Daniel 7. The great reformer Philipp Melanchton knew this truth five centuries ago. He wrote this:

“…….They have changed God’s laws and turned them into their own traditions to be kept above God’s precepts”.

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

Alright here folks, so what can we conclude from all this? Simple. 5 things:

1). The Roman Catholic Church CHANGED the biblical Sabbath from the 7th day of the week (Saturday) to Sunday (the 1st day of the week).

2). The Roman Catholic Church HAD NO BIBLICAL AUTHORITY TO DO SO!

3). Nearly ALL Protestant churches (except the 7th-day Adventists) have followed suit!

4). The 7th-Day Biblical Sabbath is on SATURDAY, not Sunday!

5). The 7th-Day Biblical Sabbath (Saturday) is A SIGN of God’s Covenant between God/Jesus and his people!

Reading through the bible (from Old to New Testaments), God/Jesus had many “signs” of his covenant between he and his people! One of the signs of his covenant was circumcision! Another sign was his biblical feasts and biblical precepts! But THE MOST important sign of the covenant between he and his people was KEEPING THE 7TH-DAY SABBATH (SATURDAY) HOLY!

So…..are all the Christians out there who are keeping the Sunday Sabbath BREAKING God’s Covenant? The simple answer is YES! (However, most of them are probably unaware of this fact and I pray that Jesus has mercy upon their souls! Afterall, I myself followed the 1st day Sabbath – Sunday – until I became “born again” and came to know better!)

But of all the Christians in the world, just THINK how many are “guilty” (rather they realize it or not) of BREAKING THE BIBLICAL SABBATH (which is Saturday!) That number would have to be in the MILLIONS, possibly BILLIONS! This is SCARY, folks! This is quite sobering!

Jesus says in Hosea 4: 6-7 [Old Testament, Book of Hosea, Chapter 4, Verses 6-7] “My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because thou hast rejected knowledge, I will also reject thee, that thou shalt be no priest to me: seeing thou hast forgotten the law of thy God, I will also forget thy children. As they were increased, so they sinned against me: therefore will I change their glory into shame”. OUCH!

Therefore, Jesus is saying here that BECAUSE Christians (as a whole) have REJECTED his true Jewish gospel and forgotten the “Jewish laws” of God, that he will reject them AND their children and allow them to “spiritually perish”, ALL those who REJECT his biblical laws, his biblical Sabbath AND his biblical holidays and HAVE NO DESIRE to *learn them!* DOUBLE OUCH!

In other words, many people in today’s world claim to KNOW Christ but they don’t truly OBEY CHRIST! For to OBEY Christ actually means to FOLLOW Christ’s biblical commands!

Jesus says in Matthew 5: 17-18 Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to 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”.

In other words, what Jesus is saying here is that the Old Testament laws (minus animal sacrifice, since Jesus eventually became the sacrifice HIMSELF for all of mankind) STILL APPLY! Hebrews 13:8 states “Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and to day, and for ever”. So what does that mean in plain English, folks? It means that Jesus Christ DOES NOT CHANGE and that his biblical laws DO NOT CHANGE! 

Therefore, even today in 2018 & beyond, we must STILL follow in the 7th day BIBLICAL SABBATH (SATURDAY) and in the BIBLICAL HOLIDAYS (such as Passover, Tabernacles, Pentecost, etc.) Now, there’s around 2.3 billion (plus or minus) Christians in the world, out of about 7.3 billion people on the planet. And the bible says that ALL of those 2.3 billion or so Christians must OBEY CHRIST’S JEWISH/BIBLICAL LAWS!

And so just how many Christians do you think are actually doing that, these days? How many Christians out there do you think are following the 7th day BIBLICAL Sabbath, are celebrating in the BIBLICAL holidays (Passover, Tabernacles, Pentecost, etc.) and are following the BIBLICAL laws (such as no eating pork, no wearing mixed fabrics, etc.?) Not very many, I can tell you that right now!

“Howbeit in vain do they worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men” – Mark 7:7

Many Christians these days are simply unaware of the fact that they’re profaning the BIBLICAL Sabbath by celebrating in the Sun-day/man-made (Catholic Church) Sabbath! And I pray that the Lord Jesus has mercy upon those folks and that He finds any number of ways to try to reach them with THE TRUTH before it’s too late!

Because MANY Christians, upon learning THE TRUTH about “the church’s” history will GLADLY follow the Lord’s commandments, once they really learn what the Lord’s commands REALLY ARE! Others sit on the fence awhile, comfortably clinging to their own “tradition”, figuring that eventually, they’ll stop their man-made traditions in order to fully follow Christ. And yet others aren’t really sure WHAT to think and waver between two opinions for far too long!

But in fact, in 1 Kings 18:21 it says: “And Elijah came unto all the people, and said, How long halt ye between two opinions? if the Lord be God, follow him: but if Baal, then follow him. And the people answered him not a word”

The fact that the people “answered him not a word” says ALOT! It says that:

A). They didn’t truly know their God, the God of Israel (Jesus Christ Almighty)

B). They had given themselves over to demons/demonic spirits

C). They were full of “confusion”. 1 Corinthians 14:33 proclaims that “For God is not the author of confusion, but of peace, as in all churches of the saints”.

In other words, the gospel of Jesus Christ (in and of itself) is NOT supposed to be “confusing”. However, all OTHER gospels and all OTHER religions contradict themselves. But Messianic Judaism/Jewish-roots Christianity is the ONLY religion on Earth that does NOT contradict itself! Reason being? It doesn’t have to! Everything is there in place, in neatly divined order and nothing’s out of place.

In other words, our God (the God of the bible) is NOT a God of Chaos but of NEATLY-DEFINED ORDER! From the laws of physics to the complexity of DNA, there is nothing out of place, no what ifs, everything is organized and in place! Everything is unique and has its very own special unique properties!

Another VERY INTERESTING fact from the Old Testament concerning The Sabbath is in Exodus 31:14 – “Ye shall keep the sabbath therefore; for it is holy unto you: every one that defileth it shall surely be put to death: for whosoever doeth any work therein, that soul shall be cut off from among his people”.

So in other words, the Lord God considers The 7th-Day Sabbath SO important that he proclaims that ANYONE who profaned it (back in Old Testament times) should be EXECUTED/PUT TO DEATH! OUCH! That’s pretty heavy, folks! Nevertheless, that truly tells us something, here: that tells us that if Jesus considered the profaning of the Sabbath to SUCH a degree in the Old Testament, that he most likely considers it JUST AS “weighty” in the New Testament & beyond! THIS IS SOBERING, FOLKS!

There are SO many Christians out there today that claim “it doesn’t matter on WHAT day you follow as The Sabbath, just AS LONG AS you follow ONE day a week FOR the Sabbath!” Wow! Such strong words! Jesus would likely be SPIRITUALLY APPALLED at those words! But lets start with the first three: “it doesn’t matter”. Well, we know from the bible that it DOES matter, it matters VERY, VERY MUCH! In fact, it mattered SO MUCH in the Old Testament that people were PUT TO DEATH for profaning it! So CLEARLY it DOES matter on WHICH day you follow as The Sabbath!

One interesting paradigm in the bible considers the two cases of Ishmael (Abraham’s son by his Egyptian slave woman, Hagar) and Isaac (his natural-born son by his wife, Sarah). Isaac is PART of the Covenant of God while Ishmael is NOT! Now why is that, do you think? Answer: Ishmael was born out of a time of “sin” (i.e. NOT waiting on God and acting prematurely IN PLACE OF GOD!)

Now what other instance in the bible can we think of where a supposed one of God ACTED PREMATURELY in PLACE OF GOD? Answer: When King Saul went ahead and made the animal sacrifice WITHOUT waiting on the prophet Samuel to arrive! And look what happened to HIM! Abraham, on the other hand, had a true heart for God and was FORGIVEN of his sin of “pre-maturing” the will of God

After Abraham REPENTED of his sin of “pre-maturing the will of God” and decided to WAIT for the will of God, Isaac was born! Therefore, Isaac was born at a time when there was NO sin surrounding the time of his birth! That’s why Isaac got to be a part of God’s Covenant, but Ishmael did NOT! Furthermore, Ishmael MOCKED Isaac and was cast out (along with his mother, Hagar) from the home of Abraham! And this was a foreshadowing of all the people that will be loved but still THROWN OUT of the presense of God at the time of the End! Why? Because they MOCKED the divine providence of God! Make sense?

And the covenant being with Isaac…….? Isaac is a prototype of all of today’s Christians that don’t just BELIEVE in Almighty God but OBEY HIM…….JOYFULLY OBEY HIM! Therefore, Isaac was a foreshadowing of all of today’s Christians that WILL BE/ARE a part of God’s TRUE biblical covenant! And so WHAT, once again, is **THE SIGN** OF that covenant? Answer: It is the keeping of the 7-day Biblical Sabbath (SATURDAY!)

[[P.S.: On a side note, you just KNOW we’re living in the Last Days when even some of the Jews THEMSELVES are trying NOT to keep the Biblical Sabbath Laws!]] 

https://www.jpost.com/Israel-News/Supreme-court-lays-down-the-law-on-Shabbat-businesses-508479

Therefore, we have a choice: We can CHOOSE to become the spiritual essence of either Ishmael (the “cast out” son) or of Isaac (the “blessed son”). We’re free to make the choice, but what we are NOT free from is the eternal consequence of said choice. So for example, IF we make the WRONG CHOICE (i.e. choose to become the spiritual essence of Ishmael, the “cast out” son), and DIE in that choice, we are NOT free from the eternal lake of fire that awaits us! But if we choose the RIGHT CHOICE (becoming the spiritual essence of Isaac, the BLESSED SON), then we ARE automatically spared from the eternal lake of fire. Make sense, folks?

It is my hope and prayer that you will decide to become an “Isaac” (a 7th-Day Sabbath & biblical feasts/laws keeper) rather than an “Ishmael” (a person that thinks they can mock the God of the bible – rather directly or indirectly – and live their own way and celebrate in their own man-made Sabbaths/laws/feasts). Amen. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

A Spiritual Letter To Mankind

“Dear Mankind (specifically Jews and Christians), I am grieved at the lack of spiritual wisdom I see in the world today. It grieves my spirit GREATLY that the Lord’s most holy, consecrated day of the week (the 7th day Sabbath) was changed from Saturday to Sunday by the Catholic Church/Council of Nicea and that all “Christian churches” have pretty much followed suit! What blasphemy! For who gave MORTAL MAN the right to change HIS laws and heavenly decrees?

People look at up at the Catholic Church today as though she were some type of  “god” by her own virtue (I kid you not!) Even NON-Catholics are often heard talking about “the Catholic contributions to history, the *Catholic contribution* to the spreading of the bible, etc.” It makes my spiritual blood BOIL!

For if mankind knew the TRUE history of the Catholic Church and that the Catholic Church has quite honestly persecuted and killed more true, biblical-based Christians than any other people or religion COMBINED, they’d RUN, not walk away from it! Even Hitler himself had ties to the Vatican, apparently. And they both (as a like-minded vicious animal) had ONE thing in common: they hated what they thought were God’s people! 

I am much saddened, grieved and disgusted from the depths of my spirit, about all the foul and evil things I see going on today, in the world. People killing each other over “Slender Man” (Satan), people attending the Burning Man festival, somehow thinking that IT will give them spiritual enlightenment, instead of Jesus Christ (who died for their sins!) Dressing innocent little girls in stripper-like garb and having them DANCE like hookers on stage during a LIVE dance competition…….

The total nudity I see in the humans’ mass media today (TV, movies, books, magazines, advertisements, etc)…..The TV shows “Toddlers & Tiaras”, “The Whispers” and “Dancing Moms”, which makes my spirit cry BITTER, BITTER TEARS OF ANGUISH! The rampant rate of homosexuality and homosexual “promotion” amongst the human populace. The “Christians” who “think they know” what the bible says or doesn’t say about baptism, the Sabbath, gay marriage, etc.

The many famous people and celebrities (who’ve no doubt been given a “platform” to speak about Jesus Christ/the gospel of Salvation if they so desire), deciding instead to promote Satanism/New Age philosophy, such as the “there’s many paths to God” movement!

Almighty Yeshua/Jesus GAVE mankind the testimony OF his divine words/works in the bible so THAT mankind would come to learn about HIM, what HE’S done, and what HE’S going to do or not do for mankind, someday. If one TRULY wants to know HIM, he recorded himself in the bible through his prophets/apostles.

There is NO mistake and NO question about who and WHAT he really IS (the living and everlasting God, the creator of all mankind!) And there should also be NO room for debate: HE, Jesus Christ ALONE, is the way, the truth and the light. Nobody [and I do mean, NOBODY…..] comes to the Father [receives Salvation/Eternal Life], but by HIM and HIM, ALONE! Why is that so hard for people to understand?

It’s like people are WANTING and TRYING to dance around the Lord’s words in the bible, as IF they can somehow MAGICALLY change them, by force of sheer will! HA! He is the same yesterday, today and forevermore. Jesus/Yeshua has said in John 8:58 “Verily, verily, I say unto you, Before Abraham was, I am”. In other words, He hails from everlasting.

Translation: He was with the Heavenly Father from the very beginning, long before creation of the Earth was ever made! And he was certain to MAKE SURE that the bible stated VERY CLEARLY in Genesis that HE created the world/creation in 6 days and that HE rested ON THE 7TH DAY!

But it’s funny how the Catholic Church came along, at its inception, and said: “no wait, a minute…..the Sabbath should be SUN-DAY, NOT on the “Jewish Saturday”! Lets change it!” Who or what gave mortal man the right to change HIS heavenly laws and decrees? Did the founder of the Catholic Church create all things and all people? Didn’t think so. Is the founder of the Catholic Church everlasting? Didn’t think so.

And CAN the founder of the Catholic Church create mortal man out of scratch? Again, didn’t think so. Therefore, by way of divine and deductive reasoning, mortal man (a CREATED BEING), has no right to change the laws or decrees of the HEAVENLY CREATOR (who created and made ALL things)!!!!

Ah but isn’t that SATAN’S argument, too? “I want things done MY way, for MY way is better!” Is it, now? With all the murders, rapes, sodomy, torchure, wars, betrayals, lasciviousness going on in the world today, I think both you AND I would agree that Satan’s “ways” are no good and have only managed to DESTROY MANKIND FROM WITHIN! He’s pretty much like the whiny little brat that REFUSES to obey the creator.

His first sin was ungratefulness for what he had and what he’d been heavenly bestowed with. His second sin was pride and his third sin was rebellion DUE to that pride. And he repented not. So a heavenly decree of eternal condemnation was placed upon him, for it was the only way. Even in the flames, he shall not repent of his deeds. The eternal flames will only manage to harden his heart against the creator EVEN MORE. Which is why, once he’s placed in the flames, he’ll never be able to come out of them.

Sometimes I silently ponder within the depths of my spirit what would’ve happened had Satan NOT rebelled against him, NOT been full of pride and NOT been so ungrateful. For he was absolutely perfect before “blemish” was found in him. But what’s done is done. There’s no going back, now. The Lord Yeshua/Jesus can’t undo what he SAYS he will do, otherwise he wouldn’t be God. He is truth eternal. And what he says will happen, happens. HE SPOKE the very universe into existence with just the mere sound of his voice! HA! What other being in creation (Satan included) can make that claim?

And while I’m highly grieved and righteously ANGERED at the current state of man, I am especially in disbelief towards the current attitude of many lukewarm Christians and by Jews who openly mock Yeshua/Jesus Christ in public as though they’re “trying to win a prize”, of sorts. There’s over 333+ Messianic Prophecies in the Old Testament that talked of a “coming Jewish Messiah” that HE HIMSELF, YESHUA/JESUS CHRIST ALMIGHTY, fulfilled in the New Testament!

And sometimes it makes me wonder. Do some of the modern-day “mockers” of Yeshua/Jesus think they’re “being cool” or “funny” when they openly deny him like that? For UNLESS they soon repent of “such deeds” and “get right with the Lord Jesus Christ”, on the day of Judgement, they will receive their “due reward” [eternal punishment in the lake of fire]. And if you think that makes Jesus Christ happy, think again! For he is greatly pained whenever he’s forced to send an unrepentant/unbelieving soul there!  

And then you have all the “mockers” out there (in general) who are trying to “fit in” and “be cool” and “get lots of Youtube views”, etc. ~Sigh~ ;( 

And for those of you Jews out there who secretly “ponder” amongst yourselves rather or not HE, Yeshua/Jesus, is the one and only true Jewish Messiah? SEARCH THE SCRIPTURES! Old AND New Testaments and you will find HIM there! The bible, in and of itself, wasn’t “tampered with”, as some try to claim (atleast not the Authorized King James Version, anyways). All MODERN translations of the bible (NIV, NSB, ESL, etc.) HAVE been tampered with, MARK MY WORDS!

Yeshua/Jesus says in Matthew 7:7-8Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you: For every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened”. 

If you, a modern day Jew, TRULY want to discover your one and only true Messiah (whom was/is/will ALWAYS be YESHUA/JESUS CHRIST ALMIGHTY), SEARCH THE SCRIPTURES! OLD AND NEW TESTAMENT, KING JAMES VERSION, FOR THE KING JAMES SCRIPTURES DON’T LIE!

But for those of you Jews who KNOW that He is the one and true Jewish Messiah AND that CONTINUE to deny HIM, you’re the exact epitome and living realization of Revelation 2:9b in the New Testament: I know the blasphemy of them which say they are Jews, and are not, but are the synagogue of Satan“.

From the onset, you might think I’m angrily condemning you but I’m actually WARNING YOU, because I love you and I want you to see the truth, that HE, YESHUA/JESUS CHRIST ALMIGHTY:

a). IS your one and true prophesied Jewish Messiah

b). IS the only way to Salvation/Forgiveness of Sin and Eternal Life

c). DOES hate and abhor when modern day Jews, etc. mock HIM without ever truly knowing HIM

d). IS the everlasting God, born into human flesh by means of a virgin birth

e). WAS resurrected from the dead AND ascended back up to be on the right-hand throne of God, the Heavenly Father

f). DOES have the keys to hell & death

However, He can’t eternally redeem you, if you won’t let Him! And the same goes for all you wayward/lukewarm Christians out there. You seem to think that your “good deeds” and “good works” will somehow earn your way into heaven and get you closer to HIM. But I tell you the truth: NO MAN, WOMAN OR CHILD can truly get close to Yeshua/Jesus UNLESS they fully submit themselves to Him and one can’t fully submit themselves to Him UNLESS they believe in HIM, trust HIM and OBEY HIM!

It’s the obeying and trusting part that most people start to slip up on. Some find His biblical “decrees” *burdensome* but they are forgetting ONE thing: He is God Almighty in the flesh, the Alpha & Omega! He can count the number of hairs on a person’s head! He knows what’s best for each individual person!

He hates all sin, not only because it’s displeasing in his site and a sign of major “malfunction” in people (as it draws them FARTHER AWAY from HIM, instead of spiritually CLOSER to HIM) but because of what it DOES to people (physically, emotionally, mentally, spiritually).

He hates divorce and what it does to families. He abhors adultery and/or abuse and what it does to families. He hates abortion and what it does to the woman and to families. He hates gay marriage/gay adoption/homosexuality and how it attempts to DESTROY the traditional family [For remember that traditional marriage/family was made in HIS own image!] He despises greed and what it does to the condition of mankind, in and of itself.

He hates lies (such as when a businessman does “crooked business” by stealing people’s well-intentioned retirement and/or college funds by Ponzi schemes, for example). He hates sodomy and what it does to victims of it. He hates murder and the pain it causes people. He hates it when people are jealous of what others have and then hate that person/those people for it; jealously destroys a person physically, mentally, emotionally, spiritually AND PSYCHOLOGICALLY, see?

He hates it when people bow down to idols/false gods and graven images, for the idols/false gods and graven images didn’t create them, HE DID! Nor can any of the idols/false gods or graven images save them, but HE CAN! Nor do any of the idols/false gods and graven images contain any eternal truth in them but HE IS TRUTH ETERNAL! HE IS EVERLASTING!

Neither Buddha or Brahma/Krishna, or Joseph Smith or Muhammad or the Virgin Mary or Satan or Shintoism/Paganism is going to save you from your sins! But Yeshua/Jesus and Yeshua/Jesus alone, is the ONLY way to Salvation, the ONLY way for one to be forgiven of sins and the ONLY way to Eternal Life!!!!!!!!!

Sadly, He could come to Earth Himself right now this very moment (and He will INDEED come back to the Earth someday at a future date, as the bible states) and preach to mankind about Salvation and His own eternal kingdom until he were blue in the face and there would STILL be those people out there who would be ever-so-determined to REJECT HIM (for whatever reason!)

Why, I ask? WHY? What has He DONE to you that’s SO terrible that you would eternally reject Him, worship other gods and end up sending YOURSELF to the eternal flames of torment? What? His dying for your sins wasn’t good enough for you? He “cramps your style” too much?

What is it? What has He EVER done in your life besides create you in your mother’s womb, develop an overall plan for your life and then perform miracles in your life? Can you honestly say there was not ONE single miracle in your life? Not even one? Think about it, now. Think long and hard. For if you were to be totally honest with yourself, you KNOW there’s been miracles in your life.

And where do you think those miracles came from? Satan? If you think THAT, you’re VERY SADLY MISTAKEN, as HIS only goal for mankind is to SEEK, KILL AND DESTROY, as the bible clearly states. However, JESUS’S only goal for mankind is to save, redeem, and preserve AS MANY AS POSSIBLE, as many that will adhere to HIM and His divine words in the bible.

You can choose to reject the Lord if you want to, that is your own choice and He can’t force myself upon ANYONE, that much is true. But PLEASE study the scriptures! And please learn the TRUTH (not only about HIM and who HE is and what HE has done for all of mankind) but also about Satan and all other “false religious systems” before you come crashing down your “ax of misunderstanding and hate” upon Him!

And please know that He loves you and that He knew you in the womb from before the time you were born! You are very, very precious in His site (all of His creation) and He doesn’t want to lose you! O how He likely wishes He could protectively gather all of you under HIS great, gentle and mighty heavenly hands, but most of you are not willing. What am I or He to do? ;(

Some of you falsely believe that He somehow “delights” in sending souls to eternal condemnation in the fire. But truthfully: do you think any “parent” out there truly rejoices at the thought/action of permanently sending their *perpetually disobedient/eternally unrepentant* kid away? Ofcourse not. So it is with HIM and His creation. It is with MUCH regret, MUCH pain and MUCH sadness that HE is forced to allow perpetually unrepentant souls to be sent to the eternal flames!

On the other hand, it is with MUCH joy and with MUCH rejoicing when He is able to PARDON an eternally obedient/repentant soul of all their sins and welcome them into Eternal Paradise – into His open heavenly arms in a warm/spiritual/eternal embrace! THAT is what gives HIM joy and delight! Notice the difference, here? All His obedient children are His pride and His joy! 😉

I think that many of you are sadly mistaken into thinking that “hell’s not gonna be that bad”, that it’s somehow gonna be “one big party”, etc.etc. Well, let me tell you something! Hell is NO party! It’s not even a BEARABLE experience for those forced to suffer in it! There is WEEPING and GNASHING of teeth! CONSTANT cries of pain and torchure! Souls wishing for death but death FLEEING from them……..

Having unbearable thirst but not being able to drink one single DROP of water! Feeling unbearable hunger but not being able to eat a single BITE of food! DESPERATELY desiring human and/or heavenly companionship and yet, having NONE! The TORTUROUS sensation of FEELING oneself being BURNED ALIVE FOR ETERNITY! Does THAT sound like any type of “party” to YOU? ;(

However, the experience that the saints/heavenly children will have is quite DIFFERENT. He shall wipe every tear from their eyes. They shall never thirst or be hungry for He shall give them the living waters of life and the 12 fruits of the seasons. There will be much rejoicing and singing and dancing and worshiping of His great heavenly name. There shall no night, only daytime……..

Neither shall the gates of the heavenly city of New Jerusalem ever be closed. Only the saints/heavenly children will be allowed INSIDE the gates of the city, as He can’t let any unclean spiritual thing enter into His new heavenly city. And His saints/heavenly children shall be with Him forever. He shall be their God and they shall be His people! 😉

For all you scoffers and “haters” out there and followers of other religions, I want you to READ Revelation, chapters 21-22, at the end of the New Testament. READ IT. Visualize it. Picture it. And then try to tell me that’s not something you’d personally want in your life. Nearly every human on this planet (if they’re honest with themselves) secretly dreams about what it would be like to never have to feel pain or have a “sad day” or “sad moment” ever, EVER again!

But here’s the thing: that “dream” can become a person’s REALITY! An ETERNAL REALITY! All they have to do is submit to Yeshua/Jesus Christ and accept HIM as their Lord & Savior! It’s THAT simple! And yet, for some people, it seems like the most hardest thing for them to do and I’m not sure why.

What is so TERRIFYING about God, the Heavenly Father loving mankind SO MUCH, that he sent his only begotten Son [Yeshua/Jesus Christ] to die for THEIR sins so that THEY could be made spiritually clean in the Father’s site, so that THEY could be forgiven for all their sins and so that THEY could freely obtain ETERNAL LIFE?

It’s almost like someone coming along and giving someone a really nice, expensive gift wrapped in beautiful golden wrapping paper with a note attached to it that said “FREE, for all who wish to accept its contents of eternal life and forgiveness of sins” and then being too “terrified” or “put off” of opening that gift and receiving that gift. WHY BE TERRIFIED? AND WHY BE PUT OFF? There is no need to fear! Just like there’s no need to be put off by HIS sacrifice for mankind! It’s NOT a trick or a gimmick! It’s REAL! Salvation through Yeshua/Jesus is GENUINE, not a call from a local sales person trying to sell you a magazine over the phone!

But I think alot of humans out there think that the message of Salvation is just “too good to be true”. They reason within themselves that “all religions promise things……how can I know that true, biblical-roots Christianity’s promise is TRUE?” Well, I’ll TELL you how you can know it’s true: FULFILLED BIBLE PROPHECY, 100% of the time! No other religion ON EARTH can make that claim! NONE! It’s how Yeshua/Jesus proves that He is who He says HE IS, and that the bible is what it says IT is: a 100% written testimony of the Word of God and the Word of God is Yeshua/Jesus, and Yeshua/Jesus, ALONE! 

Over 333+ Messianic Prophecies in the Old Testament were fulfilled in HIM “to the LETTER” during the New Testament! And did you know that the statistical chances of even just ONE being fulfilling all of those, simultaneously, is BEYOND, BEYOND, BEYOND, BEYOND ASTRONOMICAL (1 in about infinity zeros chance?) In other words, there’s NO margin for error, there! He is who he says HE is and the bible is what it says IT is!

But what really gets me is those “experts” who “proclaim” Evolution! HA! They KNOW full-well the “science” behind it is….AHEM…..quite….LACKING, should I say….with absolutely ZERO “inter-generational fossils” and the only one being “found” being proven to be a FAKE…..AAAHHHHEEMMMMM…….

BUT they still want to grasp for straws, trying EVER-SO-DESPERATELY to stamp Him out and stamp out creation and intelligent design because publicly admitting they were/are wrong would not only create a HUGE PR nightmare for them but would FORCE them to admit that yes, like every other human on this planet, THEY are a “sinner” in need of Salvation! Wouldn’t THAT just rock the 6 o’clock news? “Expert in Evolution finally admits they were wrong, that there IS evidence pointing towards intelligent design”.

HA! The Luciferian establishment & Luciferian-owned media would try to shut them down faster than the speed the light, MARK MY WORDS! When you read the news headlines these days about “so and so died after a long battle with cancer” (classic example), BE FOREWARNED! Certain people are being selected and then silenced! But the public is told a DIFFERENT story! They keep the true story under wraps by threatening surviving friends/family members if they ever told the truth that the death of their loved one seemed “suspicious”.

In fact, that brings me to my next point. There are VILE, VILE things going on in Hollywood today. Everything you THOUGHT you knew about “celebrities” and “fame”? Please throw that all out of the window for a minute and listen to me. LISTEN TO ME. Hollywood is NOT what you think it is. For many souls in Tinseltown (Hollywood) [not ALL – but MOST] have in some way, shape or form sold their soul to the devil for fortunes and fame.

And what’s sad is that these poor folks were BROKEN to begin with and falsely believe(d) that Satan will/would give them everything they ever hoped for! Their contrite and broken spirits is what originally DREW them to Hollywood/fame to begin with! They think to themselves “if only I were famous, I could be rich and if I was rich, I could solve all my problems”.

“For what shall it profit a man, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul?” – Mark 8:36

Little do they know that as soon as they “sign off” on the deal, sort’ve speak, they’re not their own anymore, they’re a puppet that has to do THEIR bidding (rather they want to or not) and there’s NO WAY OUT (save for the Luciferian establishment taking that person’s very LIFE, then claiming a “different” reason to the general public). So many of them become depressed, despondent and sometimes try to take their own lives.

They’re so desperately trying to get AWAY from it once they truly realize it’s not all it’s cracked up to be. But the media, in tune with Satan, will then blast this person by this or that, either by falsely accusing them of things or the like. Basically, a smear campaign. Okay, now I’m getting WAY, WAY too political with this and I apologize. But the main point I wanted to make is that Hollywood doesn’t solve their problems……it INCREASES them by making these people more broken than they were before.

However, for all those “celebrities” out there that VERY TRULY want a way OUT (of the Luciferian-run establishment, that is), HE [Yeshua/Jesus Christ] can GIVE them a way out. But they must REPENT of all their sins and ADHERE to HIM and HIM, ONLY (Jesus Christ Almighty) for the REST of their days (however many days on this Earth they have left).

Plus they must make their “testimony” of Him and His great heavenly name known to the world! And they must follow the TRUE “church model” [“being the church”, instead of “going to church]. Just like they must also follow the TRUE 7th-day biblical Sabbath (Saturday), celebrate in the Lord’s TRUE holidays (Passover, Tabernacles, etc.), do AWAY with all things/holidays Pagan (Easter, etc.), and get baptized in Jesus’s name!  

But alas, at some point, the Luciferian establishment will no doubt try to come after them and take them out, if and when they do, more than likely. But no worries on the person’s part! Because whoever loses his/her life for Jesus’s sake (as a result of persecution from the dark/Satanic forces) will GAIN it (i.e. receive eternal awards in HIS millennial kingdom/eternal paradise someday).

However, Revelation in the New Testament records that Jesus will unleash HIS wrath upon ALL souls who take the mark of the beast in their right hands or their foreheads. For those celebrities who HAVEN’T yet sold your souls to the devil, DON’T! And for those who of you who already HAVE sold your soul to the devil and signed your name in blood?

How sad & grieved I am for you, for you obviously did not know of, did not believe in or did NOT CARE about THE TRUTH, HIS eternal truth in the bible! His eternal truth in the bible which states in John 3:16 “For God [the Heavenly Father] so loved the world [mankind] that he gave his only begotten Son [Yeshua/Jesus Christ Almighty] that whoever believes in Him [Yeshua/Jesus Christ Almighty] will not perish but have everlasting life”.

Translation: Yeshua/Jesus Christ Almighty, took the penalty for ALL of mankind’s sins by shedding HIS holy blood during the crucifixion! And by SO doing, He allowed mankind (all those willing to accept His gift of Salvation) to receive ETERNAL SALVATION/FORGIVENESS OF SINS and ETERNAL LIFE/ETERNITY WITH HIM, THE LORD JESUS CHRIST ALMIGHTY, IN NEW JERUSALEM/PARADISE. And by believing in HIM AND OBEYING HIM, a soul “washes their sins/souls CLEAN” and their sins are remembered no more!

Even Anton Lavey (founder of the church of Satan) had a DEATH BED REALIZATION about Jesus from heaven and discovered that he had been WRONG “all along”! How sad and unfortunate to look back on one’s whole entire life and to KNOW that one has perpetually DEFIED the heavenly creator, who created all things!

And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell” Matthew 10:28 in New Testament

Also: Whoever believes, trusts and OBEYS Jesus/Yeshua (no matter the cost), Hebrews 13:5-6 states “Let your conversation be without covetousness; and be content with such things as ye have: for he hath said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee. So that we may boldly say, The Lord is my helper, and I will not fear what man shall do unto me”

Now on to my next spiel, demonic possession. Many musicians and actors have admitted to the public that they’re into the Occult and that “the spirits” are what drives them. Check out the following link, around the 4:00 mark or so.

http://www.youtube.com/v/WwhuiPtNciI and at the following link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YIjmoegy7AQ

Need I say anything more?

Many people in today’s world “envy” the rich and famous but what they don’t realize is WHOM and WHAT the “rich and famous” really work FOR (Satan — in exchange for their souls!) What would drive such a person to SELL THEIR SOUL to Jesus/Yeshua’s avowed eternal enemy (Satan), all for just TEMPORARY “riches”, while HE, and HE alone, JESUS CHRIST ALMIGHTY, can give them ETERNAL RICHES that will NEVER FADE AWAY for all eternity, provided they permanently TURN from Satan and turn to HIM, instead?

Don’t they KNOW how much Jesus/Yeshua loves them and how long He’s been waiting for them? Don’t they KNOW that HE died on the cross for THEIR sins and the sins of all mankind so that THEY could be given a chance of eternal salvation and of everlasting life? Do they care?

When I see the modern day music and movie industry, my spirit is MUCH GRIEVED! ;( Musicians have become “evangelists” for the devil, HIS eternal adversary, and musical “concerts” have become “Satanic worship” in every sense of the word. And movies like “Noah” and “Son of God” TAKE THINGS **WAY** OUT OF CONTEXT AND AREN’T EVEN BIBLICAL!

One can know within the first 5 seconds that the Son of God movie is NOT biblical! How? Simple. Water gets into the boat. And if one reads the bible, one would know FAIRLY WELL that NOT ONE SINGLE DROP OF WATER GOT INTO THE ARK since Noah coated it with a special kind of tar/pitch all throughout. And the movie “Noah” was made by an Atheist who HATES God! Yes, HATES GOD and HIS great, mighty, powerful heavenly name!

Sadly, “movies” have now taken the place of Jesus/Yeshua’s holy, divine words in the bible! Now people will go out and watch what THEY think are “biblical movies”, thinking that they “don’t NEED to read the bible, since now, *the bible has come to the big screen!*”. O how they are deceived! Satan is alive and well in today’s world…….A world where the 1st lesbian “throuple” had what I call a “fake marriage”, where humans are partaking of the most gravest of sins IN GENERAL and where people have long since forgotten Jesus/Yeshua!

How much longer will the Heavenly Father let this total debauchery go on? I’m sure it can’t be too much longer. The funny thing is, NO MAN knows the day or hour, NOT EVEN the angels or the Son of God, JESUS CHRIST ALMIGHTY, but the Heavenly Father, ONLY!

I am ASTOUNDED at the rate of “gay marriage” today and human society’s general ACCEPTANCE of it. Let me tell you something! If one “approves” of gay marriage, in HIS eyes, it is no different than if the “approver” of such vile things had/has partaken in a gay marriage, THEMSELVES! Yes, you heard me right. Gay “marriage” IS AN ABOMINATION in His heavenly site and one of the most VILE of things! And it’ll only get worse from here on! Soon, humans will demand commune marriage, incest marriages, pedo marriages, bestiality marriages, etc., until marriage, in and of itself, is not a recognized institution anymore.

But I’ll tell you ONE thing. Just because “two men” and “two women” *marry one another* in the court’s eyes DOES NOT mean that they are “married” in the Lord’s eyes! In fact, in HIS heavenly eyes, they are not married AT ALL but are “communed together in perpetual sin” since HE has created marriage to be between ONE man and ONE woman! O how Satan has tried since the beginning of creation to try to DEFILE it [man and woman made in the “image of God”] as much as possible! How he puts this false idea into their bi/homo/trans minds that they were “born that way!”

Nonsense! He would NEVER in all His heavenly days and existence create something as anything other than a true, “natural design”. But Satan, as you know, likes to PERVERT things and has tried to do so from the very beginning of creation!

One thing that Satan PARTICULARLY likes to pervert is the *sanctity of life*! As the bible itself states, Satan’s angry and knows his time is short. So rather than worry about if Jane Doe or Joe Schmoe’s gonna grow up to be an adherer/teacher of the Word someday, he figures he might as well save himself all the hassle and cut to the chase by promoting ABORTION! Cause hey, what better way to make sure he gets rid of ALL future “preachers” than by killing them in the womb before they even have a chance to take their first breath?

And isn’t that eerily similar to King Herod’s edict to kill all male children, aged 2 years and under, in the Old Testament? How is the modern day “cultural edict” to kill off as many unborn babies in the womb as possible [for Satan AND for cash money] any different? Answer: it’s not!

Life has NO MEANING at all to Satan and his “advocates”, only DEATH AND DESTRUCTION! And he’s somehow twisted it all around to make people believe it’s a “war on women” thing when in ALL actuality, it’s a “WAR ON THE BIBLE AND YESHUA/JESUS CHRIST ALMIGHTY”, thing! 

Look around you. Women aren’t being “murdered” in the streets due to their desire for “birth control”. There is no “war on women”, as Satan and his “advocates” define it. For the only TRUE “war on women” is the war that Satan fights for THEIR VERY SOULS! That is the TRUE “war on women” raging today! But again, it’s not just a spiritual “war on women”! It’s a spiritual war on men and children, as well! There is a WORLD-WIDE spiritual war RAGING ON in today’s world for the SOULS OF MANKIND! Which side of the spiritual “war” is YOUR soul on?

His heavenly patience is wearing MIGHTY thin. There’s not much time left. You need to make yourselves ready. ALL of you! For no man knoweth the day or the hour. He will come at an hour you DO NOT expect. Please do not let the day come upon you like a thief in the night! Please watch therefore, constantly pray and make yourselves ready! And don’t take my warnings LIGHTLY! For they are meant for YOUR benefit! O how I love thee and want to see thee saved from eternal destruction (as many as are willing).

John 14:6 says: “Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me”. 

Translation: He is the ONLY way to receive forgiveness of sins and the ONLY way to have eternal life. There IS no other way. NO other god or belief system is going to save you from the eternal wrath of God IN THE FLAMES OF TORMENT, only HE and HE alone, Jesus Christ/Yeshua Almighty, can save you! But you must BELIEVE! And you must have FAITH in HIM and obey HIM! Otherwise, calling out to HIS great, heavenly name will do nothing for you!

“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

I hope to see all of you (as many as adhere to the Lord’s great, heavenly name) in the new heavenly kingdom, someday!

How To Spot a FALSE PROPHET: Step by Step Guide [UPDATED]

With SEVERAL false prophets abound in today’s world (on Youtube, in mega-churches, on Christian radio, in Christian magazines, in Christian books, on Google webpages, in local churches, on news programs, even right here on WordPress, etc.), how can one know for sure rather or not someone is TRULY of God or not? Though this is not a COMPLETE checklist, it is a good start:

  • Do they ask for money? While not ALL ministries that ask for money are false per say, 99.5% of them ARE! So how can one tell? IF the “ministry in question” does NOT preach about repentance of SIN, Salvation in Jesus Christ ONLY, the REALITIES of hell/the lake of fire, the TRUE history of Christianity since 325AD, bible prophecy of the End Times, the TRUTH about what’s really going on in America today, the TRUTH about what the bible says about homosexuality (as in — it’s an abomination unto God), the TRUTH about the Devil’s lies, the IMPORTANCE of reading the bible (specifically, King James Version), etc., then that’s ministry’s a false ministry and should be avoided at ALL COSTS! [These are the LAST DAYS OF AMERICA, people! We don’t have TIME to be victims of false ministries! Our eternal souls are too precious!] 
  • Do they deny the Holy Trinity of God the Heavenly Father, the Holy Son Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit?
  • Do they proclaim to speak in tongues, per say?
  • Do they deny The Rapture of the church?
  • Do they live extravagantly? (Example: televangelists that live in mansions, have multiple houses, drive nice cars, etc).
  • Do they try to claim that “God wants us to be RICH” (as in, materialistically/financially rich?)
  • Do they say we no longer have to celebrate The Sabbath? (Specifically, the 7th Day Sabbath?)
  • Do they hold the Ecumenical/Pro-Catholic Church viewpoint?
  • Do they say you no longer need to read the bible?
  • Do they claim “if you send money, God will bless you ABUNDANTLY?” 
  • Do they claim it’s okay to live in fornication outside of marriage?
  • Do they say that homosexual relationships and homosexual marriages are OK in God’s eyes?
  • Do they proclaim that there’s no condemnation for sin?
  • Do they proclaim that sins can be forgiven by those other than Jesus Christ?
  • Do they profess a belief in a “Purgatory?”
  • Do they encourage a *close relationship* with the Catholic Church and its doctrines?
  • **Do they whine at you if you don’t donate money?**
  • Do they claim that God/Jesus Christ is OK with abortion?
  • Do they claim they are OK with the Womens’ Liberation Movement (thus, disregarding the bible passages that proclaim that the mother or the wife is supposed to be in charge of maintaining the house/dwelling place and children?)
  • Do they preach about the importance of forgiveness and then, in the next breath, talk about a recent grudge they have against someone?
  • *****Do they disregard bible prophecy (specifically, bible prophecy of the End Times/Revelation) and claim “it’s no longer important?***** 
  • Do they hold a viewpoint of “once saved, always saved?”
  • Do they call “bible study” OF THE DEVIL?
  • Do they claim that it’s not necessary to pray for forgiveness of sins?
  • Do they teach that EVERYONE and EVERY world religion goes to ETERNAL PARADISE?
  • Do they claim that God likes ALL music?
  • Do they claim that sex before marriage and/or living together before marriage is just fine?
  • Do they try to teach that Jesus doesn’t ever personally appear to people in person or in dreams, in today’s world?
  • Do they claim that Allah and the God of the bible are the SAME GOD (which couldn’t be further from the truth, by the way?)
  • Do they teach REPLACEMENT THEOLOGY (as in that “God is DONE with Israel?”)
  • Do they teach that it’s not necessary to help those who are less fortunate than us/in need?
  • Do they combine New Age teachings WITH Christian teachings (such as Meditation, Reading Tarot Cards/Horoscope/Walking in Labyrinths, etc.)
  • Do they teach that Jesus was not the true Son of God?
  • Do they discount the importance of confession of our sins to Jesus Christ Almighty?
  • Do they proclaim that the PAGAN holidays of Christmas, Easter and Halloween are TRUE CHRISTIAN HOLIDAYS?
  • Do they teach that Jesus and Satan were “brothers”?
  • Do they teach that it’s OK to pray to “saints” and/or “angels”?
  • Do they teach that it’s OK to have “idols” or “graven images” placed all throughout your car, work, church and/or home?
  • Do they teach that “the Old Testament NO LONGER APPLIES” and “has no significance in our lives today?”
  • Do they claim that we “NO LONGER NEED TO CELEBRATE THE LORD’S 7 ANNUAL FEASTS, OUTLINED IN LEVITICUS 23”?
  • PLUS MANY, MANY MORE!!!!!

If ANY of these “signs” appear in your “church” (rather a physical church, a TV church or an online church), or “favorite ministry” (rather it be a radio/tv/online/local ministry), don’t walk away, RRRUUUNNN! And never look back! Because if you stay “entrenched” in THAT false church or THAT false ministry, you WILL be deceived, MARK MY WORDS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

In fact, driving home from work yesterday, while listening to Bot Radio Network in my car, I heard this broadcast where the announcer was saying: “for just $76 dollars a year, you can feed 2 children 2 warm meals a day for a year. Won’t YOU donate your gift? You can even DOUBLE your gift and double the amount to feed DOUBLE the number of children! Won’t YOU give generously to the children to ensure they have 2 warm meals a day? Won’t YOU donate your gift of $950 dollars?” or something along those lines and I was just THOROUGHLY APPALLED! ;(

For……..WHAT KIND OF PERSON IN THEIR *RIGHT MIND* IS GOING TO TRY TO EMBEZZLE NINE HUNDRED AND *FIFTY* DOLLARS FROM SOMEONE?! Especially in TODAY’S ECONOMY, when there are SO many homeless people out there today [some were even once active military and/or even hold PhD’s!!!!!!] And for some old people out there (who they’re no doubt likely targeting), that’s their ENTIRE PENSION for a few months’ worth!

CLEARLY it’s a SCAM! And it NEVER ceases to amaze me just how many “programs” ASK FOR MONEY for “various reasons” (“they need a radio tower in Cuba”…….REALLY?…….”there’s starving children in _______”…..nevermind that the U.N. ALREADY sends in ton of U.S.-backed aide to these countries…….

“this ministry can’t survive without the **GENEROUS DONATIONS** (generous being a “buzz word”, here) of our listeners”….REALLY?….Never mind that the cost of radio is most likely covered by its advertisers!!!! And when I flipped through the TV a year or so ago and this Messianic Rabbi guy said at the end of the sermon: “if this ministry has blessed you, SEND MONEY”, it just made my BLOOD BOIL! 😦

And though some “evangelists” give a good message about how this world is fallen and how we need to turn to Jesus Christ and have faith in Jesus Christ in our lives, AS SOON as they start ASKING FOR MONEY, it’s almost like their “message” then becomes “deactivated”. For while they were letting the Holy Spirit speak through them DURING their “message” of sin/repentance/salvation, they allowed the Holy Spirit to LEAVE THEM as soon as they started ASKING FOR MONEY! Heck, even asking for money from people, in and of itself, shows a true LACK OF FAITH IN JESUS CHRIST ALMIGHTY! For all those who TRUST the Lord Jesus KNOW firsthand that HE and HE ALONE will provide for all their financial needs!

JESUS CHRIST ALMIGHTY IS **NOT** A CASH COW, OKAY FOLKS! Nor should he ever, ever, EVER be made out to be one by today’s Christians……for ANY REASON….I don’t care WHAT reason people try to give. It’s NON-BIBLICAL. For Jesus and his disciples NEVER charged a single coin for people to “hear their message”. They preached onto the poor, the homeless, the maimed, the sick, the blind. And they NEVER charged people money for their “services”. EVER!!!!!!!!!

Now, when people start a ministry, they can go one of either ways. They can go for non-tax exempt, for-profit organization or they can go for tax-exempt, non-profit organization that accepts donations. Sadly, NEITHER of these “ministry set-up models” are BIBLICAL and that’s just what’s so sad about the concept of “ministry” in today’s world. Plus the types of things that they’re teaching people at seminaries these days…..to focus on the “historical” or the “intellectual” aspect of Jesus Christ, instead of on the TRUE nature of Jesus Christ.!

Today’s seminaries in general teach people to preach about Jesus as if he’s a gold coin that they need to “sell” to people, instead of teaching them the necessary tools to preach about Jesus Christ in such a way that the person walks away feeling as though they learned something, feeling as though the Holy Spirit spoke to them through the sermon, feeling as though the Lord Jesus himself spoke to them personally through the sermon and then, going out and CHANGING THEIR WHOLE LIVES AND HEARTS AROUND, as a result OF that very sermon.

That’s the type of preaching that we need here in America, today and throughout the world. And MOST IMPORTANTLY, preachers need to teach about bible prophecy and how it impacts our lives today. [Although I have to admit I myself haven’t even had time to start a Bible Prophecy page yet here on this blog, as I’ve been too busy focusing on the basic things, who Jesus is, what he did, how to get saved & stay saved, etc. So please forgive me, I will start a Bible Prophecy page soon here in the near future…..]

But yet, the “wolves in sheep clothing” are EVER-SO-GOOD for “making you feel bad if you don’t donate”. Guilt trips and manipulation are common amongst these folks. 

However, nonetheless, WHEN it comes to all the wolves in sheep’s clothing, I pray in the name of the Lord that these people will have their eyes opened and that they will soon turn from their ways and turn TO or turn BACK to Jesus Christ before it’s too late & their souls are lost for eternity! I fear for these people’s souls! ;( I can’t sleep at night sometimes, worrying about what’s gonna happen to them, if they don’t repent in the name of Jesus Christ before it’s too late! IF ONLY they knew the true “hell” they were headed for, after they die! I honestly think that they think in their mind that hell isn’t real or that it’s “not going to be too bad”. IF ONLY THEY KNEW THE TRUTH! ;(

The Path To Darkness: WIDE IS THE GATE

There is SO much wrong going on in the world today that it’s just mind-boggling……BEYOND mind-boggling, actually……

But what REALLY gets me the most is modern-day Christianity…….NOT ONLY are there SEVERAL apostate churches popping up all over the U.S. and around the world, but even HUNDREDS of the ones who call themselves “non-apostate churches” are actually in and of themselves apostate (ironic, isn’t it?)

“Really? Which ones?”, you may ask. Well, let me explain, here.

LONG BEFORE the MODERN day apostasy (i.e. Ecumenicalism — modern-day Churches aligning themselves with the Roman Catholic Church in Rome — and/or the Emergent Movement — bringing “New Age” themes into the Christian church, such as meditation, labyrinths, etc.), there was ALREADY an apostasy going on within the “Christian church”, as it were. And it started around the time of Constantine. Many people (specifically, Catholics and many Christian people today) want to PRAISE Constantine, thinking he did so much to ADVANCE CHRISTIANITY within the Roman Empire and perhaps the world, even.

But they are sadly overlooking ONE thing: In wanting to “appease” the Pagans within the Roman Empire who worshiped the Sun on SUN-DAY, he CHANGED the Sabbath day from the BIBLICALLY-MANDATED SATURDAY (7th day of the week) to SUN-DAY (the first day of the week!)

“Yeah, so what! What’s the big deal?”, you may be asking or saying to yourself. Well, I’ll TELL YOU what the “big deal” is! You can NOT change the holy, divine law of God and still call yourself “Christian”, that’s what!

Anyways, the Catholic Church followed suit in further promoting SUN-DAY as the Sabbath, instead of the BIBLICALLY-MANDATED SATURDAY (7th day of the week). Also please remember that around the time of Constantine in the Roman Empire, anti-Jewish sentiments were high among Gentile Christians, who accused the Jews of crucifying Jesus. Therefore, those ancient Christians didn’t want anything to DO with Jews or what they considered to be “Jewish law”. That’s why they HAPPILY submitted to the SUN-DAY Sabbath, instead of the biblically-mandated Saturday (7th day) one!

However, when Constantine changed the Sabbath from Saturday TO Sunday, he sadly turned Christianity into a LIE [and only managed to further advance an APOSTATE FORM of Christianity, nothing  more]. That’s almost like the Jews of Moses’s time worshiping the golden calf while still believing in their hearts that they were somehow doing a “true service” to God! You can NOT put a “Christian stamp” on something that’s PAGAN in nature or origin (such as worship of the Sun day) and then expect God to approve of it, for God CAN NOT and WILL NOT approve of such blasphemies!

Okay, now fast forward to the modern times. The Catholic Church has observed a SUN-DAY Sabbath for YEARS and pretty much ALL OTHER CHRISTIAN CHURCHES (save for a very small few) have followed suit!

Have you ever wondered about WHY Jesus was the JEWISH MESSIAH, yet, most modern-day churches/Christians don’t give a DARN about the Old Testament or even do so much as care to read it? Or have you ever wondered WHY the modern-day church doesn’t celebrate the 7 annual feasts of the Lord and writes them off as “Jewish holidays, ONLY”? Or have you ever wondered why the church no longer celebrates the “7th Day-biblically-mandated Sabbath” but instead celebrates the Sabbath on the FIRST day of the week (Sun-day)?

Ironically enough, many modern-day churches/Christians completely and totally REJECT Jesus’s “Jewishness”.

And sadly, that’s the one aspect of Jesus Christ that simply can NOT be denied if one is to accept the FULL 100% TRUTH of God!

Modern-day Christians can NOT deny the “Jewishness” of Jesus since it’s written ALL OVER THE SCRIPTURES, OLD **AND** NEW TESTAMENTS, not to mention that over 360+ Messianic Prophecies about the coming Jewish Messiah in the Old Testament were FULFILLED by Jesus Christ in the New Testament!

https://yeshua777.wordpress.com/m/

Sadly, many modern-day Christians today have this unbridled spiritual/emotional animosity for the Jews. But ironically, that is exactly what Satan wants because remember that Satan’s goal is to take people AWAY from the Word of God and to divide and conquer among the Lord’s people (Gentile and Jew, alike!) And the people that decide to follow the Jewish roots of Christianity, believing it to be the Lord’s 100% truth, are not only few and far between but are facing an UPHILL BATTLE, as far as acceptance goes. But ya know what? Jesus had THIS to say in John 15:18-27 :

If the world hate you, ye know that it hated me before it hated you. If ye were of the world, the world would love his own: but because ye are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hateth you. Remember the word that I said unto you, The servant is not greater than his lord. If they have persecuted me, they will also persecute you; if they have kept my saying, they will keep yours also. But all these things will they do unto you for my name’s sake, because they know not him that sent me;

If I had not come and spoken unto them, they had not had sin: but now they have no cloak for their sin. He that hateth me hateth my Father also. If I had not done among them the works which none other man did, they had not had sin: but now have they both seen and hated both me and my Father. But this cometh to pass, that the word might be fulfilled that is written in their law, They hated me without a cause. But when the Comforter is come, whom I will send unto you from the Father, even the Spirit of truth, which proceedeth from the Father, he shall testify of me: And ye also shall bear witness, because ye have been with me from the beginning”

But anyways, the point I was wanting to make is that modern-day Christianity has STRAYED from its Jewish roots and if there’s to be any REAL biblical truth behind it, it needs to GO BACK to its Jewish roots, in form, in prayers, in reading and in practice!

“But HOW?”, you may ask. Answer: By reading and following the Old AND New Testaments!

“But wait a minute!”, you may think. “Weren’t the Old Testament laws done away by Jesus in the New Testament?”

Answer: No, NOT AT ALL! In fact, they were EXPANDED ON, and even ADDED ONTO in the New Testament!

Don’t believe me? Check out Jesus’s Sermon on the Mount (Matthew chapter 5-7). Not only did he reference the 10 commandments from Moses in the Old Testament but he EXPANDED on them.

And concerning the Old Testament law(s), he had THIS to say:

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]

The new heaven and new Earth don’t happen until Revelation 21:1 [book of Revelation, chapter 21, verse 1] in the bible. And from my understanding, at the start of Revelation chapter 22, heaven and earth have already passed and a new heaven and new Earth has been created. The law was done away with at the beginning of chapter 21 of Revelation DURING the creation of the new heaven and new Earth and by the start of Revelation chapter 22, there is no longer any “law” because “law” is simply not needed anymore, for there is NO MORE CHAOS, DISORDER AND DESTRUCTION, at this very point in time, for there is only PEACE, LOVE, SERVITUDE TO GOD/JESUS CHRIST AND PERFECT HARMONY. In other words, Paradise Eternal.

And ya want to know WHY the Lord’s 7 Annual Feasts aren’t JUST “Jewish holidays” for the Jews to observe, only? Jesus AND his apostles AND their followers celebrated all 7 of the Lord’s Annual Feasts, including 2 additional “minor” Jewish feasts and ESPECIALLY the Saturday (Jewish) Sabbath. And the book of Revelation in the New Testament references the people of the Lord partaking in THE FEAST OF TABERNACLES (one of the Lord’s required/ordained 7 annual feasts talked about in the OLD TESTAMENT!) So what does THAT tell you, folks? Yup. You guessed it. The Lord’s 7 annual feasts are STILL required for us to celebrate today! And not only that, but celebrating the feasts of the Lord that Jesus fulfilled can actually help bring one CLOSER to Jesus Christ, not farther away from him!

You may’ve gone to a Sunday-worshiping church your whole life and been led to believe by your pastor that the “Jewish days” were no longer required of us, as Christians and/or that it was “good” and “okay” to celebrate Christmas and Easter (Pagan originated holidays) by putting a “Christian stamp” on it or might’ve even been led to believe by “popular teachings” that Christians somehow replace Jews as God’s Chosen People. But my friends……you’ve been deceived. Not only by your church and your pastor but by the world. Remember that Satan is  VERY ANGRY and knows his time on Earth is short and he’s out to deceive as MANY PEOPLE AS HE CAN, while he still gots time. He gots the Catholics, Mormons, Jehovah’s Witness, Christian “cults” and all those who hate and deny Jesus, in his pocket. He also gots the Satanists/Wiccans/Pagans/New Agers, Hindus, Muslims, Buddhists, Atheists, Shintoists, Kabbalists, Scientologists, Agnostics, Sunday-sabbath-worshiping Christians, etc. in his pocket.

But what Satan DOESN’T have in his pocket are true, bible-believing Christians who adhere to/follow the bible, front to back, Old Testament to New Testament, in life, in prayer, in reading and in practice. And it’s THOSE souls who shall inherit Eternal Paradise with Jesus Christ someday and of whom Satan hates the absolute most!

Plus let us ALSO remember what Jesus said in Matthew 7:13-14

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

I pray that all that read this will open up their eyes to the GREAT DECEPTION that happened in the Christian church under Constantine long ago and that they will not only have an interest in the Jewish roots of Christianity but that they will search their minds, hearts, bodies and spirits to discover the 100% truth of God, not just the “partial truth” spoken about in most modern-day Christian churches today! I also want to say a prayer for Israel and for all those who deny or mock Jesus Christ. May they open up their minds, hearts and spirits to the Lord’s full 100% spiritual truth before it’s too late. Amen. 

From Christian to Messianic/Jewish roots Christian

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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