  1. "Wherefore the Lord said, Forasmuch as this people draw near me with their mouth, and with their lips do honour me, but have removed their heart far from me, and their fear toward me is taught by the precept of men: Therefore, behold, I will proceed to do a marvellous work among this people, even a marvellous work and a wonder: for the wisdom of their wise men shall perish, and the understanding of their prudent men shall be hid. Woe unto them that seek deep to hide their counsel from the Lord, and their works are in the dark, and they say, Who seeth us? and who knoweth us?" (Isaiah 29:13-15)


  2. Hello Family of God,

    (Parentheses) within Bible passages cited are used to expound on the word/s in [brackets] which precede the parentheses. ALL CAPS are used for double emphasis; this is my way of saying, "It says what it says, and it means what it means." The Bible is self-explanatory (i.e., "the best defense of Scripture is Scripture itself") in its interpretation (i.e., "the perspicuity of Scripture"), but even to this day, we find unnecessary criticism from Biblical "scholars" and theologians alike. According to these "brilliant" minded men and women, they ask, "hath God said?" (cf. Gen. 3:1-5; Lev. 18:22; Isa. 66:1-2; Rom. 1:26-27; 1 Cor. 6:9-11; 15:3-4; 2 Cor. 5:17-21; Gal. 5:19-21; Eph. 5:3-5; 1 Tim. 1:9-10; 2 Pet. 1:3; Jude 7).

    I tried to post this in a sermon entry, but there were some technical issues which arose from the "other side" -- so I will be posting it here. This message may be "cut off" due to the Devil and his victims under his control through his sphere of influence operating in their minds. The Doctrine of the Triune God is being attacked more than ever today by televangelists and hirelings in the church visible. I will tearing down these strongholds which the Adversary has been at hard work.

    "And without controversy great is [the mystery of godliness] (Grk. to tes eusebeias musterion; i.e., "The Revelation of God in Christ disclosed within the pages of Holy Scripture"): God was [manifest] (Grk. phaneroo; i.e., "The Incarnation of the Eternal Son of God") in the flesh, justified in the Spirit, seen of angels, preached unto the Gentiles, believed on in the world, received up into glory." (1 Timothy 3:16)

    The Doctrine of the Trinity (i.e., "The Father, The Son, and The Holy Spirit" as ONE in BEING; He is the One True and Living God) has been slandered by the unregenerate as polytheistic, heretical, an invention of man, and even stated as being demonic in origin. I will first begin by explaining in a nutshell what the Trinity is NOT; I will also be providing Irrefutable arguments to destroy every argument that raises itself against the knowledge of God; and we are all obligated to defend its Truth from all false teachings that raises itself against the knowledge of God, and to do so with the right spirit (cf. 2 Cor. 10:4-5; 2 Tim. 2:15, 24-25; 3:16; 4:1-5; Tit. 1:9; 1 Pet. 3:15). Below are a list of false doctrines and heresies that have been taught throughout church history in Christendom.

    • - Arianism (aka "Nontrinitarianism"; i.e., "Jesus Christ is a creation of God, and not the Creator").
    • - Modalistic Monarchianism (aka "Oneness Christology; Modalism; Sabellianism").
    • - "Christian" Science (the fact that "Christian" and "Science" do not go together is an oxymoron; thus their "god" is NOT the God Revealed in Holy Scripture).
    • - The "god" of Mormonism (i.e., "a" god, and NOT [the] God of True Christianity).
    • - New Age God/Pantheism (this belief refutes itself).

    The listed above are all doctrines of demons (lit., "doctrines taught by demons"), and they were given through "epiphanies" (i.e., "willing or unwillingly human conduits") to unregenerate men and women who didn't take the time necessary to study the Scriptures with due diligence. As a result of their utter failure to take heed to the Command to be found as a workman approved by God, these lying spirits from the kingdom of darkness were given permission to deceive these men and women by using them as a mouthpiece to disseminate their demon doctrines (cf. 1 Kgs. 22:21-23; Matt. 12:43-45; 1 Tim. 4:1; 2 Tim. 2:15; Rev. 16:13-14).        

    Arianism:

    Arius was an elder at Baucalis (c., 250-336), where our beloved brother Mark was martyred; and this is where the demons taught the ancient heresy of Arianism through the mouth of this heretical priest. He taught that our Lord Jesus Christ was a creature who was "begotten" by His Father at some point in time; at the same time, Arius believed that Christ was God the Son, and thus also God. Anyone with a modicum of common sense would tell you that God does NOT come "into" being. The Jews clearly understood that if someone declared themself to be the "son of" someone, he possessed the same [nature] as his father.

    "And therefore did the Jews persecute Jesus, and sought to slay him, because he had done these things on the sabbath day. But Jesus answered them, [MY FATHER] (Grk. ho pater mou, lit., "my own Father", and not "our Father" cf. Matt. 6:9) worketh hitherto, and I work. Therefore the Jews sought the more to kill him, because he not only had broken the sabbath, but said also that God was his Father, making himself equal with God. Then answered Jesus and said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, [The Son can do nothing of himself], but what he seeth the Father do: for what things soever he doeth, these also doeth the Son likewise." (John 5:16-19)

    The Son can do NOTHING of Himself; this does not suggest that Christ has no power apart from His Father, but that they are ONE in Works, Sovereignty, Authority, Perfect Judgment, and Equal Honor; see Jn. 5:17-23). Although God's act of [Creation] ended after the sixth day, He continues His work by sustaining all thngs in existence ( cf. Jer. 10:12; Matt. 10:29-30; Rom. 1:20; Col. 1:16-17; Heb. 1:2-3).

    "Then saith he to Thomas, Reach hither thy finger, and behold my hands; and reach hither thy hand, and thrust it into my side: and be not faithless, but believing. And Thomas answered and [said unto him], [My Lord and my God] (Grk. ho kurios mou kai ho theos mou)." (John 20:27-28)

    Thomas replied to JESUS ("unto Him"), and not to BOTH the Son (My Lord) and the Father (My God); and this isn't a reaction of surprise either (e.g., "oh my goodness!"), for such a response, if it were to be the case, would warrant a stern rebuke from Jesus Himself. Anyone who interprets this passage using the faulty eisegesis mentioned is obviously lying through their teeth, or had never been trained in New Testament Greek at all.

    "For the grace of God that bringeth salvation hath appeared to all men, Teaching us that, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, we should live soberly, righteously, and godly, in this present world; Looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of [the great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ] (Grk. tou megalou theou kai soteros Iesou Christou); Who gave himself for us, that he might redeem us from all iniquity, and purify unto himself a peculiar people, zealous of good works." (Titus 2:11-14)

    Once again, anyone trained in basic New Testament Greek would know of the Granville Sharp rule: When two nouns are used to describe a person, and the two nouns, which are not proper names (e.g., "John, Matthew, Peter") are joined by the copulative (i.e., "and"); and the first noun has the definite article (i.e., "the"), while the second noun does not, BOTH nouns are referring to the SAME person.


  3. Hello Family of God,

    The person responsible for hacking my computers in every way possible is relentless in his pursuit (I'm quite certain I know who is responsible); it is my desire that this person repent from his sins before it is too late, because tomorrow in not promised for anyone. It is my desire for this person to come to the realization that the Devil does NOT care for him in the least, and Satan will not be "sharing" his Victory when all is said and done. This person is so hellbent in hindering my ministry that he attempted (many times) to falsely accuse me of doing a bad job at my workplace by tampering with the software which used to perform my work duties.

    There is no "reward" for being a slave of Satan, only Everlasting Torment in the Eternal Lake of Fire; for it is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the Living God, and knowing therefore the terror of the Lord, we persuade men. The worst thing anyone can do to you is kill your body, but everyone ought to know that the most dreadful experience one can possibly face for all of Eternity is to face the Judgment and Wrath of the Lord God Almighty, and He alone has the Power to destory the soul and bring it to utter ruin (Heb 10:31; 2 Cor. 5:11; Matt. 10:28).

    It is the tragedy of all tragedies what men and women will sacrifice for temporary pleasures in this passing world, and what they are willing to give up for this snare from the Adversary. As the man who laid up earthly treasures only to be told that he will die the same day, and then he will face the God of gods to be sentenced to Eternal Punishment. The final gift from the Devil to the one who was enslaved by him will be packaged as a casket with the body of the one who has "sold" his soul to Satan; and by the way, to "sell" one's soul is a misnomer, because the soul of a man or woman is PRICELESS: which is why the Lord Jesus warned about the irrevocable danger of trading one's eternal soul for fleeting lusts which will ultimately bring unending ruin and corruption.

    I truly do care for this person, and I would not wish Everlasting Punishment in Hell and the Eternal Lake of fire to the worst of my enemies. I sincerely pray that the Lord will remove the heart of stone, and give him a heart of flesh. Nobody is "beyond" redemption (as long as there is any remorse or guilt), even if the Devil tries to deceive others that they have crossed their Rubicon, and that God "hates" them, and it is Satan who truly does "care" for them, there may still be hope. Please pray with me that he comes to repentance and give his life over to the Lord before it is too late.

    God Bless!


  4. "And it shall come to pass, that from one new moon to another, and from one sabbath to another, shall all flesh come to worship before me, saith the Lord. And they shall go forth, and look upon the carcases of the men that have transgressed against me: for their worm shall not die, neither shall their fire be quenched; and they shall be an abhorring unto all flesh." (Isaiah 66:23-24)


  5. "The field is the world; the good seed are the children of the kingdom; but the tares are the children of the wicked one; The enemy that sowed them is the devil; the harvest is the end of the world; and the reapers are the angels. As therefore the tares are gathered and burned in the fire; so shall it be in the end of this world. The Son of man shall send forth his angels, and they shall gather out of his kingdom all things that offend, and them which do iniquity; And shall cast them into a furnace of fire: there shall be wailing and gnashing of teeth." (Matthew 13:38-42)


  6. I forgot to add:

    One might beg the question why Tyre and Sidon, or Sodom will not be excusable on Judgment Day if they were not shown the same degree of miracles that were demonstrated and performed in the sight of the unrepentant cities during the time of Jesus' earthly ministry. Scripture says that unto whomsoever much is given, of him shall be much required; anything beyond what God chooses to "reveal" to each man or women would nullify the requirement of "saving faith" (Lk. 12:48). Ignorance of the Truth is not an excuse to justify unbelief, and the greater extent of available information given to the unsaved, the greater the severity and degree of the punishment when retribution is given at the Great White Throne when the "dead" are judged according to the Righteousness of God and Christ (Matt. 10:15; 1:22,24; Mk. 6:11; Heb. 6:4-6; 10:29; Rev. 20:11-15).


  7. Hello Family of God,

    There will always be a debate as to whether a Genuine Believer can stop believing, or if someone who DOES NOT believe IN THEIR HEART can come to believe at some point in their life. The Bible makes it VERY CLEAR that there is Genuine Belief that can never fall away from TRUE FAITH, and a false belief or unbelief that stems from a hardened heart that will NEVER be persuaded of the Gospel Message and Salvation by Grace through TRUE FAITH.


    "For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved. He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is [CONDEMNED ALREADY], because he hath [NOT BELIEVED] in the name of the only begotten Son of God." (John 3:16-18)


    The unbeliever is condemned ALREADY because he "hath not believed" (Grk. hoti me pepisteuken) in the name of the Only Begotten Son of God and His Propitiation for our sins. The Greek verb "believed" is in the [perfect tense], which denotes an action of permanency on the one performing the action; this is the irrevocable and unchanging "heart attitude" and sinful action of the unregenerate, or even as a false convert (Matt. 15:24-30; Rom. 8:9; 2 Cor. 5:17; Gal. 5:17,22-23; 1 Jn. 2:5,16,19). It is [permanent] because this unbeliever is ALREADY CONDEMNED (before he/she actually gets sent there) to an Eternal Hell and Lake of Fire according to Jesus's own words, and the Scripture clearly teaches that Eternal Punishment is just that -- ETERNAL, and cannot be escaped once the sentence is given by God Himself and Christ. There is NO denying what the Word of God clearly teaches as shown. 

    "But and [IF THAT EVIL SERVANT SHALL SAY IN HIS HEART], My lord delayeth his coming; And shall begin to smite his fellowservants, and to eat and drink with the drunken; The lord of that servant shall come in a day when he looketh not for him, and in an hour that he is not aware of, And shall cut him asunder, and appoint him his portion with the hypocrites: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth." (Matthew 24:48-51)


    The parable of the faithful and unfaithful servant gives an illustration of someone who "professes" Jesus as Lord, but in [HIS HEART] reveals an unbelieving attitude that will not be persuaded from that point on; the context also reveals that this servant is [EVIL], and his actions further prove this point (e.g., "he beat his fellow slaves, and he eats and drinks with the drunken"). You either TRULY believe in the Name of the Son of God and the Gospel message, or you DON'T; there is no straddling the fence on this most important issue (cf. Matt. 5:37; Jn. 5:24; 6:51; 14:21; Heb. 11:1; Rev. 21:8).


    "Ye are of [your FATHER the devil], and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it. And because I tell you the truth, ye believe me not." (John 8:44-45)

    When someone is of their "father", it is implied that they have the SAME "nature" as him, and we see Jesus condemning the Pharisees as having the heart attitude of Satan (i.e., "unrepentant, liars, accusatory, etc."). It is crystal clear that Satan will NEVER repent, and even after being imprisoned in the Bottomless pit for 1,000 years, he is more angrier than ever before -- this is NOT remedial (Rev. 20:1-3;7-10). And if someone has the same nature as their Father (e.g., "the devil"), there's no chance in hell that they will ever repent, and granting them "more time" will not cause them to change their minds. The rich man in the parable of the rich man and the beggar did NOT repent, and he had the audacity to ask if Lazarus can cool off his tongue even after all the torment and neglect the rich man had toward him while alive on Earth. 

    "Then began he to upbraid the cities wherein most of his mighty works were done, because [THEY REPENTED NOT]: Woe unto thee, Chorazin! woe unto thee, Bethsaida! for if the mighty works, which were done in you, had been done in Tyre and Sidon, they would have repented long ago in sackcloth and ashes." (Matthew 11:20-21)

    "And the rest of the men which were not killed by these plagues yet [REPENTED NOT] of the works of their hands, that they should not worship devils, and idols of gold, and silver, and brass, and stone, and of wood: which neither can see, nor hear, nor walk:" (Revelation 9:20)

    "And men were scorched with great heat, and blasphemed the name of God, which hath power over these plagues: and [THEY REPENTED NOT] to give him glory." (Revelation 16:9)

    There will come a point in time where one will TRULY Believe in the Gospel Message and be saved, or PERMANENTLY reject it (i.e., "in their hearts"), and no amount of preaching can persuade them otherwise. There is the Eschatological Wrath of God poured out in the Great Tribulation, and there is the Wrath of God in Hell to those who will refuse to repent and turn to God and Christ for the Free Gift of Salvation; and in BOTH cases, these [children] of Satan (cf. Jn. 8:44-45; Col. 3:6) will NOT repent, even when God's Wrath is poured out upon them. This is why the Scriptures warn those who hear the voice of God tugging on their hearts NOT to harden their hearts, because tomorrow is not promised to anyone, and no one should lose this opportunity while there is still chance to avoid Hell and the Eternal Lake of Fire (Matt. 23:33; Jn. 1:23; Rom. 2:5; 2 Cor. 6:12; Eph. 4:18; Heb. 3:7-19; Jas. 4:14).

    God Bless!


  8. Hello Family of God,

    Some JW's came to my door about 30 minutes ago and invited me to attend their meetings. We engaged in a discussion about the finished. Work of Christ on the Cross. He made an attempt to teach Salvation by works, and after refuting this false teaching with Scripture, he changed his mind, but he remain settled in his denial about the Deity of Christ. His name is Rene, and please pray for me that the Lord will grant him repentance and knowledge of the True Gospel and the True Christ. Please pray that the Devil will NOT snatch away that which is sown in his heart, and he will repent and turn to God and the True Christ for Salvation. 

    God Bless!


  9. "Heal me, O LORD, and I shall be healed; save me, and I shall be saved: for thou art my praise. Behold, they say unto me, Where is the word of the LORD? let it come now. As for me, I have not hastened from being a pastor to follow thee: neither have I desired the woeful day; thou knowest: that which came out of my lips was right before thee. Be not a terror unto me: thou art my hope in the day of evil. Let them be confounded that persecute me, but let not me be confounded: let them be dismayed, but let not me be dismayed: bring upon them the day of evil, and destroy them with double destruction." (Jeremiah 17:14-18)


  10. "And take heed to yourselves, lest at any time your hearts be overcharged with surfeiting, and drunkenness, and cares of this life, and so that day come upon you unawares. For as a snare shall it come on all them that dwell on the face of the whole earth. Watch ye therefore, and pray always, that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man." (Luke 21:34-36)


  11. Dear Friends and Family of God and Jesus Christ,

    "Then were there brought unto him little children, that he should put his hands on them, and pray: and the disciples rebuked them. But Jesus said, Suffer little children, and forbid them not, to come unto me: [for such is the kingdom of heaven]." (Matthew 19:13-14)

    This is not secret, but the key to overcoming sins and the world system is reliant upon THE ABSOLUTE SOVEREIGNTY OF GOD. Although many Christians acknowlege this Truth, they fail to apply it daily in their lives -- or they put more confidence in themselves rather than crying out to their God and Father, "Abba Father" (Isa. 64:8; Matt. 5:45; 6:6,9; 7:11; 23:9; Rom. 8:15; 2 Cor. 6:18; Gal. 4:6; 1 Jn. 3:1). Children are very vulnerable, and their reliance is dependent upon their Father or Mother, or anyone that is an adult who they know can meet their needs. Furthermore, God is not a human Father; He is the Father of all Creation, and His Power has no limit. Satan and his minions (human or nonhuman) have absolutely NO POWER at all against the One who yields ALL POWER. The reason why the power of God seems greater during the most difficult times in our lives is because our strength is made perfect in times when we are most vulnerable or weak (1 Chron. 16:11; Isa. 40:28-31; 41:10; 2 Cor. 12:7-10; Eph. 6:10; Phil. 4:13; 2 Tim. 1:7; Heb. 4:16; 1 Pet. 5:7). The more submissive you are to the Lord, the greater the power which resides in you shall be. Not trusting in the Lord is a sin, and a sign of little faith, disobedience, or even unbelief; so to doubt the power of God within you is to grieve the Holy Spirit (cf. Eph. 4:30; Heb. 11:6).

    As I have mentioned before, Satan, and all who are siding with him are self-deceived; but Satan himself is the most deceived of them all (cf. Ps. 36:3; Rom. 3:13; 2 Tim. 3:13). The irony in this is jaw dropping. To be deceptive towards others is obviously a sign that such deceivers are deceiving themselves as well; because deception is a sin, and being delusional enough to fool oneself (i.e., "Satan") into thinking that he has a ghost of a chance against Almighty God is beyond absurd, and that is an understatement. Whether Satan realizes this or not, he is only fulfilling the Sovereign Plan and Purpose of God, and will ultimately bring it to fruition through His Divine Providence. Satan is so "good" at what he does (i.e., "lying and deceiving") that he even deceived himself.

    "And the Lord said unto Satan, [Whence comest thou?] Then Satan answered the Lord, and said, From going [to and fro] in the earth, and from walking [up and down in it]." (Job 1:7)

    Satan is the Father of lies, and there is NO Truth in him; however, even Satan himself responds to God correctly (Gen. 3:1; Jn. 8:44; Acts 5:3; 2 Cor. 4:4; 11:3-4; 2 Thess. 2:9-10; Eph. 6:11; Rev. 12:9; 20:7-10). Satan obviously knows that God is Omniscient, and so he answers God concerning his whereabouts on the Earth. The fact that Satan responded correctly after God had asked Satan, "whence comest thou?" is an example of the Absolute Sovereignty of God. God raised a rhetorical question, and it is not as if God did not know the activities of Satan, but He also demanded a response; because the Devil is God's Devil, whether Satan realized this or not -- but I'm sure he did. Not only was it a rhetorical question from God, but a reply from Satan was still demanded as a display of the Sovereignty of God Almighty, and Satan did just that.

    "And I saw an angel come down from heaven, having the key of the bottomless pit and [A GREAT CHAIN] in his hand. And he laid hold on the dragon, that old serpent, which is the Devil, and Satan, and bound him a thousand years, And cast him into the bottomless pit, and shut him up, and set a seal upon him, that he should deceive the nations no more, till the thousand years should be fulfilled: and after that he must be loosed a little season." (Revelation 20:1-3)

    This is NOT a literal chain, but symbolizes the influential power and control Satan has over the Word and its system (Rev. 12:9). Satan will also be set free after the culmination of the Millennial Reign of Christ on Earth to gather an army led by their leader, Prince Gog. These rebellious men and women are the final tares in the wheat field, and the last gathering of the lost and condemned who are sentenced to the Eternal Lake of Fire (Rev. 20:11-15). It is sad that even after 1,000 years of living in an ideal world without war under the Righteous Rule of Christ, there will be a rebellion against God and His Anointed. 

    "And I saw another angel fly in the midst of heaven, having the everlasting gospel to preach unto them that dwell on the earth, and to every nation, and kindred, and tongue, and people, Saying with a loud voice, [FEAR GOD, AND GIVE GLORY TO HIM]; for the hour of his judgment is come: and [WORSHIP HIM THAT MADE HEAVEN, AND EARTH, AND THE SEA, AND THE FOUNTAINS OF WATERS]." (Revelation 14:6-7)

    God gives all of humanity one last chance to choose their Eternal Fate as He will allow Satan to roam the world to collect an army of Christ haters. If such a person refuses to submit to the Sovereign Rule of God and His Christ after 1,000 years, then there is no hope for them, and they have crossed the point of no return. Such men and women will NEVER repent, even when they are cast into the Lake of Fire and Brimstone (cf. Matt. 10:14-15; 11:20-24; Mk. 3:29; Heb. 6:4-6; 10:26-27; Rev. 9:21; 16:11). Jesus said that those who blaspheme the Holy Spirit will NEVER receive forgiveness, not in this age, nor in the age to come. This is not to say that if someone repents and humbles themselves by asking for Mercy and Forgiveness, that they will not receive it from God; rather, it is to say that if one REFUSES to repent after every possible sign was given to them (e.g., "miracles, the Truth of Scripture, the Resurrection of Christ, etc."), then they will never repent -- even in Hell and the Lake of Fire. Nothing more can convince such men and women who have hardened their hearts.

    "And I saw [THREE UNCLEAN SPIRITS] like frogs come out of the mouth of [the dragon], and out of the mouth of [the beast], and out of the mouth of [the false prophet]. For they are the spirits of devils, working miracles, which go forth unto the kings of the earth and of the whole world, to gather them to the battle of that great day of God Almighty." (Revelation 16:13-14)

    Bible commentators have suggested that the Antichrist (i.e., "the first beast") is indwelt by Satan himself, but this is clearly NOT the case here. The Antichrist is the Beast that rises out of the Bottomless pit (Rev. 11:7). And the name of the King who rules the demons possessing the bodies of chimeras from the Bottomless Pit is named Apollyon (Rev. 9:11). The Name of the Antichrist: (Grk. Apollyon) or (Heb. Abaddon), which means "the Destroyer." Apollyon or Abaddon is NOT Satan, but the Antichrist, or the first beast. He ascends out of the sea (i.e., "the Abyss"). Although the first and second beast work in lockstep with the Devil, they are distinct entities than Satan. Again, it is a tragedy that so many men and women will reject the Free gift of Eternal Life only to follow their own carnal lusts. Satan will be quick to oblige such people, but it will cost them their Eternal soul (cf. 2 Chron. 36:16; Ezek. 6:9; Mic. 3:4; Zech. 7:12; Matt. 10:33; Jn. 3:36; 12:48; Rom. 2:8)

    "And I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, Now is come salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of his Christ: for the accuser of our brethren is cast down, which accused them before our God day and night. And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death. Therefore rejoice, ye heavens, and ye that dwell in them. Woe to the inhabiters of the earth and of the sea! for the devil is come down unto you, having great wrath, because he knoweth that he hath but a short time." (Revelation 12:10-12)

    "And when the thousand years are expired, Satan shall be loosed out of his prison, And shall go out to deceive the nations which are in the four quarters of the earth, Gog, and Magog, to gather them together to battle: the number of whom is as the sand of the sea. And they went up on the breadth of the earth, and compassed the camp of the saints about, and the beloved city: and [FIRE CAME DOWN FROM GOD OUT OF HEAVEN, AND DEVOURED THEM]. And the devil that deceived them was cast into the Lake of Fire and Brimstone, where the beast and the false prophet are, and shall be [TORMENTED DAY AND NIGHT FOR EVER AND EVER]." (Revelation 20:7-10)

    The above quote describes Satan's last ditch effort to usurp the Throne of God, and as you can clearly see, he fails miserably. Although Fire and Brimstone comes down from God out of heaven, the Millennial Temple in the Capital of the World (Jerusalem) is left unscathed. The architecture and materials used to rebuild Jerusalem for the 1,000 Year Reign of Christ on Earth are Indestructible. The Indestructible Capital City is protected by the Master Carpenter Himself, Christ Jesus; with the exception that the City and Temple are Glorified materials rather than those found here on Earth. The FACT that Satan and his army of Incalculable number are instantly destroyed just by the Spoken Word of Christ is an indication of just how hopeless the Archdeceiver is.

    "I have given them thy word; and [THE WORLD HATETH THEM, because they are not of the world, even as I am not of the world]. I pray not that thou shouldest take them out of the world, but that thou shouldest keep them from the evil. They are not of the world, even as I am not of the world. Sanctify them through thy truth: thy word is truth." (John 17:14-17)

    In Closing:

    Why would anyone want to be on the losing side? The answer is pride and rebellion; and this is the sin that led Satan to be the treacherous creature that he now is. Time is short, and ask yourself if you are living a life pleasing to the Lord God, or are your desires set on temporal blessings that Satan will be ready and willing to offer you. Dress to the NINE, because the Bridegroom is about to return to take His Bride home. Now I know full well that there have been many who expected the Lord to return in their lifetime, and it did not come to pass; but the time were are living in gives the strong indication that the Parousia is at hand. The Holy Spirit is speaking through the remnant of Genuine Christians, and these faithful are purifying themselves in preparation for such a momentous time in History (2 Pet. 3:14; 1 Jn. 3:3). The Lord is looking for His spotless and blameless Bride upon His Return to take her into His arms to carry her away to His Father's House. 

    "And I saw no temple therein: for the Lord God Almighty and the Lamb are the temple of it. And the city had no need of the sun, neither of the moon, to shine in it: for the glory of God did lighten it, and the Lamb is the light thereof. And the nations of them which are saved shall [walk in the light] of it: and the kings of the earth do bring their glory and honour into it. And the gates of it shall not be shut at all by day: for there shall be no night there. And they shall bring the glory and honour of the nations into it. And there shall in no wise enter into it any thing that defileth, neither whatsoever worketh abomination, or maketh a lie: but [THEY WHICH ARE WRITTEN IN THE LAMB'S BOOK OF LIFE]." (Revelation 21:22-27)

    God Bless!


  12. Dear Friends and Family of God and Jesus Christ, 

    This Topic of discussion is by far the most comprehensive of all my teachings I have done Online. I have devoted countless hours in doing extensive research concerning one of the most cardinal teachings discussed in the Word of God. I do realize that to read the entire content of this message can be daunting to many -- even to professing Christians. I feel that this discussion is of the utmost importance in these perilous times before the Glorious appearing of our God and Savior, Jesus Christ (Acts 1:11; 3:19-21; 17:31; 1 Cor. 1:7; 4:5; 11:26; Phil. 1:10; 3:20; Col. 3:4; 1 Thess. 1:9-10; 4:15; 5:4,23; 2 Thess. 1:6-7; 2:1-2,8; 1 Tim. 6:13-16; 2 Tim. 4:8; Tit. 2:12-14; Heb. 9:28; 10:25,37; 1 Pet. 1:3-5,13; 4:13; 2 Pet. 3:8-10; 1 Jn. 2:28; 3:2-3; Jude 1:14-15; Rev. 1:4-8; 22:12-13,20-21). Apostasy is on the rise, and there are many who are too complacent with the knowledge they have accumulated from reading the Bible, and from those who shepherd their flock.

    "He said therefore, A certain nobleman went into a far country to receive for himself a kingdom, and to return. And he called his ten servants, and delivered them ten pounds, and said unto them, [Occupy till I come]." (Luke 19:12-13)

    "And [the Spirit and the bride say, Come]. And let him that heareth say, Come. And let him that is athirst come. And whosoever will, let him take the water of life freely." (Revelation 22:17)

    The Spirit of God longs for the return of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ; and It is their urgency and desire for this to take place soon as they say, "Come" (Grk. erchou; present imperative).

    Christ Dearly Loves His Bride to be, and His Bride eagerly awaits His return to take her home to be married. If you are a Genuine Christian, then you will do the same; because it is the Holy Spirit who speaks through the Bride of Christ (the Spirit AND the Bride). This is a CLEAR sign pointing to the imminent return of the Bridegroom. The word imminent in the Bible is interpreted as meaning an event which could happen at any given moment, or without delay. This is a PERFECT example teaching us that it is God's Perfect timing that will usher in the Second Advent.

    "Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and [HE WILL SHEW YOU THINGS TO COME]. He shall glorify me: for he shall receive of mine, and shall shew it unto you." (John 16:13)

    Time is far more precious than gold that perishes when we take into consideration that how we use our talents will determine what and where our position will be when the King of Kings arrives to reward His slaves according to their works (Dan. 12:3; Matt. 5:10-12; 16:27; 25:20-23; Lk. 19:15-19; Jn. 6:27; 1 Cor. 3:8-14; 2 Cor. 9:6; 2 Tim. 4:8; Rev. 22:12). Now this is not to imply that we can somehow merit Eternal Life or keep our Salvation "secure" through good works. Any True Believer knows that works and obedience are the results that follow regeneration, and this is done through the working of the Holy Spirit who abides in us (cf. Ezek. 36:27; Jer. 24:7; Jn. 15:16; 16:13; Acts 26:20; Rom. 6:3-4; 8:11; Gal. 5:18; Eph. 4:1; 5:8-11; 12:2; Phil. 2:13; Col. 2:12; 3:1-3; 1 Thess. 1:9-10; 2 Tim. 1:14; Tit. 2:7-8; Jas. 1:22-25; 2:14-26; 1 Pet. 2:11-12; 1 Jn. 2:27). A life that bears no fruit at all is not a faith that saves, and as mentioned by many True Christians: we are saved by faith alone, but the faith that saves is never alone (Matt. 3:7-8; 5:16; 7:16-18; 21;13:18-23; Jn. 8:30-31; 15:6).

    The Bible makes if clear that most people that have ever lived throughout History will end up in the Eternal Lake of Fire, so does this somehow imply that the Devil was successful because of the sheer amount of human beings and fallen celestial creatures will suffer Eternal Punishment? And because the number of all the redeemed will be significantly smaller than the lost, does this constitute failure on the part of God Almighty? Well the obvious answer is NO! The Bible makes it very clear that those who have rejected the Gospel and suffer the fate of Eternal Torment will only Glorify God as He will ultimately subject all enemies under His Sovereign Rule (cf. Ps. 110:1; Prov. 11:21; 16:4; Rom. 9:22-23; 1 Cor. 15:25; Heb. 1:13). I have suffered an onslaught of attacks concerning my ministry of discernment, and I know that regardless of how daunting it may feel to my co-laborers, but God promises:

    "No weapon that is formed against thee shall prosper; and every tongue that shall rise against thee in judgment thou shalt condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the Lord, and their righteousness is of me, saith the Lord." (Isaiah 54:17)

    1). Intrusion of my home.
    2). Intrusion concerning my duties at my employer (computer and work files were tampered with or have disappeared).
    3). Home PC and other hardware used for my ministry have been hacked (e.g., stolen passwords and email messages).
    4). Sorcerers, Warlocks, Satanists, Occultists, Witches, Black Magic Practitioners, and Counterfeit "Christians" who are all agents of Satan (willingly or unwillingly) casting spells on me (they fail to realize that my Father In Heaven takes care of me, and will NOT allow such men and women to ultimately succeed in their evil deeds. Persecution only builds up the Body of Christ).
    5). Encounters with several types of dark entities (they run away like the cowards they are when the Name of Jesus Christ is Invoked).
    6). False accusations and slander towards me.
    7). Others methods which I will not reveal due to their complexity and a requiring of a higher level of spiritual discernment that most "Christians" do not possess.

    INTRODUCTION:

    I am writing this message to expose the lies, machinations, and deceptions of the adversary Ha-Satan that many Christians are uninformed about, and have failed to thoroughly plumb the depths of the crown prince of deception who is to come (i.e., the Antichrist). I am also fully aware that in doing such, Satan will attempt to put an end to my ministry, or to hinder it at best (cf. Matt. 16:18; Acts 5:1-10; 17:9; 2 Cor. 2:1-11; 1 Thess. 2:18; 1 Tim. 3:6-7; Rev. 2:9-10,13,24; 3:9). This isn't about "binding" Satan as some false teachers often mention in their prayers because of ignorance and misapplication of Scripture. If you are saying phrases such as "I bind you, Satan" in your prayers, then you are in actuality praying to Satan himself rather than relying on the Power of God and Christ alone to exercise authority over the Devil (cf. Matt. 12:26-29; 18:18; Acts 4:7; Jude 1:9; Rev. 20:1-2). I will separate this topic of discussion into subsets in order to avoid any confusion to the reader; and each subset will be comprised of smaller segments (e.g., "part 1a through end of part 1a"). Listed below are the table of contents regarding the topics which are discussed in this message:

    I. Knowing your Adversary and Archenemy (Satan and his cohorts; e.g., human and nonhuman agents willfully or unwillingly under the damning influence and persuasion who are under the control by the spiritual forces of darkness operating in this world).
    II. Persecution.
    III. Defiance against the Sovereign Will of Almighty God, and consequently being given over to a reprobate mind as a result of human volition (e.g., sexual immorality).
    IV. The Condemning power of the Tongue.
    V. The god of this Earth.
    VI. The Paranormal and "Experiences" (e.g., ghosts, aliens, ufo's, cryptids, etc.)
    VII. Sowing Discord within the Body of Christ (e.g., the sowing of tares in the wheat field by Satan; Matt. 13:24-30).
    VIII. False Religions.
    VIII. The Protection of God's Family and Closing Remarks.

    [KNOWING YOUR ADVERSARY]

    Part 1A:

    So just who are we dealing with here? We are dealing with a treacherous creature with delusions of grandeur set out to thwart the plan and purpose of God and Jesus Christ, and to attack His person. The thrust of this exposition is to reveal the broad range of attacks done against our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. I once heard a false teacher who taught his congregation that Satan is not a personal being, but rather a title for the conscience of fallen man. This is indeed blasphemous, why? This would mean that Jesus Christ had the conscience of the fallen and sinful nature of the first Adam; and to add insult to injury: should we ponder, even for a fleeting moment, that the Sinless Son of God had worldly desires of such a vile and lawless creature like Satan? (Matt. 4:1-11; 16:22-23; Rom. 5:14-19; 1 Cor. 15:21-23; 45-49). If you don't find this blasphemous, then you are siding with Satan, and you are also under his deceptive sphere of influence whether you admit to this or not.

    This leaven permeated and defiled the integrity of Scriptures, and subsequently led to more false teachings and hypocrisy (Matt. 7:15-20; 16:12; Mk. 8:15; Lk. 12:1; 1 Cor. 5:6-8; 2 Cor. 11:13-15; 2 Pet. 2:1-3), such as the heretical teaching that Jesus Christ is not God Incarnate. Satan deceived himself into thinking that the Son of God would give into his temptations when He took on the role of a slave in the form of a human being with limitations (cf. Matt. 24:36; Jn. 4:6; 19:28; Phil. 2:7), but Jesus wanted nothing to do with Satan's stinking kingdoms, and nor should we (cf. Dan. 2:44; 7:27; Matt. 4:17; 5:3; 6:33; 12:28; Mk. 1:15; Lk. 17:20-21; Jn. 18:36; Rom. 14:17; 1 Cor. 6:9; Rev. 11:15; et al).

    The Bible makes it crystal clear that the Holy Spirit will GLORIFY Christ after He ascended to Heaven to be seated at His Father's Right Hand (i.e., equal authority and rulership; cf. Jn. 14:13; 15:26; 16:13-15; Rom. 16:27; 2 Cor. 4:14-15; Phil. 3:3; 2 Thess. 1:11-12; Heb. 1:3; 1 Pet. 4:11; 2 Pet. 3:18; Rev. 15:4). Since it is the function and role of the Holy Spirit to Glorfy Jesus Christ through Christians, then this would indicate that anyone who continues to deny the Deity of Christ does not possess the Holy Spirit; and thus are NOT saved. By the way, anyone who claims that the Holy Spirit (resides in all True Believers) spoke to them in an "audible" voice is either a liar, or were deceived by a lying spirit working for Satan. The Holy Spirit speaks through all Genuine Christians and is centered on the person of Christ and His works (Jn. 1:45; 5:37; Lk. 24:27,44; Acts 10:43; 18:28; Rom. 1:1-2; 1 Cor. 15:3; 1 Pet. 1:10-11; Heb. 1:1-2; Rev. 19:10).

    "For though there be that are called gods, whether in heaven or in earth, (as there be gods many, and lords many,) But to us there is but [ONE GOD, THE FATHER], of whom are all things, and we in him; and [ONE LORD JESUS CHRIST], by whom are all things, and we by him." (1 Corinthians 8:5-6)

    "Hear, O Israel: The [LORD] our [GOD IS ONE] LORD: And thou shalt love the [LORD THY GOD] with all thine heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy might." (Deuteronomy 6:4-5)

    If there is ONLY [ONE LORD], then would this somehow imply that God the Father is NOT Lord since the above passages clearly states that there is ONE LORD? The arguments against the Deity of Christ are based upon the faulty assumption that if Jesus is not specifically referred to as GOD, then He cannot be God. Any first year bible student ought to know that the title LORD is also a title of DEITY. Although they are not exactly the same, the titles of BOTH Lord and God is given to someone who is Deity. Jesus told His disciples that all power (Grk. exousia; i.e., "authority") is given unto Him in Heaven and in Earth; and He Commands His servants (Grk. doulos; lit., "slaves", as slaves to a Master who OWNS them) to do as He pleases as their LORD (Matt. 28:18; Jn. 13:31-35). To deny the Deity of Christ because the title "God" is not applied to Jesus every instance He claimed to possess the same attributes as His Father is absurd, why? If the "Devil" is called Satan, then does this somehow imply that Satan is NOT the Devil? What about the god of this world? or the Prince of the power of the air? These titles are all pointing to the same being; i.e., "the Devil." The difference between the Godhead and the Devil is that the Creator is Eternal in the past, and will remain this way forever. BOTH the Father and the Son are referred to as "HIM" in the Eternal State (Rev. 22:3).

    The Bible ascribes several names to Satan:

    • Beelzebub (Matt. 12:24)
    • The Satan (1 Chron. 21:1; Job 1:6)
    • The Evil One (Matt. 13:19)
    • The Ruler of this world (Jn. 12:31; 14:30; 16:11)
    • The Prince of demons (Matt. 12:24)
    • The god of this world (2 Cor. 4:4)
    • The Prince of the power of the air (Eph. 2:2)
    • The Accuser of your brethren (Rev. 12:10)
    • The Adversary (1 Pet. 5:8)
    • The Great Red Dragon (Rev. 12:3; 20:2)
    • The Serpent of old (Rev. 12:9)
    • The Prince of this world (Jn. 14:30)
    • The Tempter (Matt. 4:3; 1 Thess. 3:5)
    • The Wicked One (Matt. 13:19,38)

    We must realize who is the Master Potentate and Sovereign over all. The Devil himself is under the authority of Almighty God, and even when the Antichrist rises to power, it is God Himself who has put him in his seat of authority during the final time of testing for all who dwell upon the Earth; and the Lord is the one who sets up world leaders and removes them as He pleases (Ps. 33:10; Dan. 2:21; 4:17). Persecution and suffering only strengthens the Genuine Christians and adds blessings and Eternal rewards in Heaven.

    "Now the serpent was [more subtil] than any beast of the field which the LORD God had made." (Genesis 3:1a)

    "Behold, I send you forth as sheep in the midst of wolves: be ye therefore [wise] as serpents, and harmless as doves." (Matthew 10:16)

    The Hebrew adjective for [subtil] (Heb. arum; i.e., "shrewd, crafty, deceitful and treacherous") and the Greek [wise] (Grk. phronimos) are equivalent in meaning when compared with each other using the LXX Septuagint. Some may wonder why Jesus would use the word wise and serpent in the same sentence. Serpents are "shrewd" in the sense that they are "clever" in their goings on. Thieves are clever, especially when they outwit the local authorities; but this wisdom is worldly, and exercising wisdom contrary to the Wisdom which comes from above will eventually lead to self-destruction. We must take into consideration that not all wisdom is indeed TRUE wisdom, and it can also originate from demonic forces at work (cf. Gen. 3:6-7; Isa. 5:21; 29:14; 47:10; Job 5:13; Prov. 3:7; Matt. 11:25; Rom. 1:22; 1 Cor. 2:6.14; 3:19; 2 Cor. 11:14-15; Col. 2:8; Jas. 3:15).

    "And when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was pleasant to the eyes, and a tree to be desired [to make one wise] (Geb. sakal), she took of the fruit thereof, and did eat, and gave also unto her husband with her; and he did eat." (Genesis 3:6)

    "Who [is a wise man] (Grk. sophos) and endued with knowledge among you? let him shew out of a good conversation his works with meekness of wisdom. But if ye have bitter envying and strife in your hearts, glory not, and lie not against the truth. [This wisdom] (Grk. sophia) descendeth not from above, but is earthly, sensual, devilish." (James 3:13-15)

    "He taketh [the wise] (Heb. chakam) in their [own craftiness]: and the counsel of the froward is carried headlong." (Job 5:13)

    "Let no man deceive himself. If any man among you seemeth to be [wise] (Grk. sophos) in this world, let him [become a fool] (Grk. ginomai moros genestho; aorist imperative), that he may be wise. For [the wisdom] (Grk. sophia) of this world is foolishness with God. For it is written, He taketh [the wise] (Grk. sophos) in their own craftiness." (1 Corinthians 3:18-19)

    Scripture commands and demands that anyone professing to be "wise" according to wisdom accumulated from the world system to become a "fool" (lit., a "moron"). This "diabolical" wisdom originates from the innate and prideful heart of man. Frank Sinatra did it "his own way", and unfortunately his pride and arrogance left him with nothing but a bottle of hard liquor and a pack of cigarettes on his gravestone. Nothing can be more foolish than to be wise in ones own sight; for such boasting of ones own abilities and  strengths will ultimately lead to destruction. Instead, we are to relying on the Power of God and His Wisdom to be a lamp to our feet and a light unto our path; and if we are to "boast" . . . let us boast in this: that we know and understand the Creator of the Universe (cf. Ps. 119:105; Prov. 16:18; Isa. 5:21; Jer. 9:24; Hos. 6:3; Jn. 10:14,27-29; 17:3; 2 Cor. 12:8-10; Eph. 1:17; 3:17-19; Phil. 3:10; Col. 1:9; 2 Pet. 3:18; 1 Jn. 2:13; 4:6-7; 5:20).

    "For all that is [in the world], the [lust of the flesh], and the [lust of the eyes], and the [pride of life], is not of the Father, but is of the world. And [the world passeth away], and the lust thereof: but he that doeth the will of God abideth for ever." (1 John 2:16-17)

    "Then Peter took him, and began to rebuke him, saying, Be it far from thee, Lord: this shall not be unto thee. But he turned, and said unto Peter, Get thee behind me, Satan: thou art an offence unto me: for thou savourest not the [things that be of God], but [those that be of men]." (Matthew 16:22-23)

    Above is the folly of a disciple of Christ who thinks that their ways and wisdom are better than God's Perfect knowledge and understanding in the affairs of all humanity. This happens all the time in Christendom; and we have all been guilty of this at one time or another in the past. To whine and grumble to God as to why things don't always go our way is to challenge the Eternal Mind of God; for to do this is to reject God's Perfect will, plan, and purpose in our lives, and the direction He wants us to move as He guides our steps daily (cf. Exod. 4:10-14; 1 Sam. 15:1-34; Isa. 55:8-9; Job 38 1-18; Ps. 37:23; Prov. 3:5-6; Matt. 6:28-33; Jn. 9:1-3; Rom. 12:2). I find it utterly amazing that God can put up with the incessant complaining and bickering that He has to deal with moment by moment from His adopted children worldwide.

    God Bless!

  13. These counterfeit "Christians" with incredibly bad theology insist that a "revival" is on its way, and these false apostles and false prophets (even prophetess) are claiming that their lying signs and wonders are a fulfillment of this false revival. It is glaringly obvious that anyone with a modicum of spiritual discernment ought to be able to distinguish Truth from errors and lies, but sadly, this is not the case. Much of these false miracles and false apostles and prophets seek after [external] "evidence" of the working of the Holy Spirit. Is this what the meaning of FAITH is all about? (2 Cor. 5:7; Eph. 2:8-9; Gal. 2:16; Heb. 11:1). Not only that, if one were to rebuke their heretical doctrines and counterfeit miracles, they would accuse Genuine Christians as being "divisive" and even "blaspheming the Holy Spirit.


  14. https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/1/11/Lakewood_worship.jpg

    The above picture is an example of just how widespread and ubiquitous such self-centered and carnal these counterfeit Christians are. Who are these false teachers attracting? They are attracting counterfeit "Christians" who are only interested in serving "self" rather than submitting to the Sovereign Will of God the Almighty. My blood boils knowing that there are millions upon millions of false converts who attend church "faithfully", and such men and women are there only to satiate their carnal desires and sins of the flesh. Jesus gave warning signs that will be evident before His Second Coming at The Olivet Discourse in Matthew 24, and one of them was that MANY false prophets shall arise. We know that wars and persecution has been going on since the ascension of Christ, but He also compared them to "birth pangs" of a woman in labor. That is, false prophets will increase in "frequency" until the Second Advent, and this is the case in apostate Christianity today (e.g., Apostle Jimbo, or Prophetess Sherlene). I've heard many lame excuses as to why their prophecies did NOT come to pass such as: modern day prophets can make errors in their predictions and still be deemed a "true" prophet. I've even heard a false prophet making the excuse that the reason why some of his prophecies did not or will not come to pass is because not enough people prayed for it to come to pass. They might as well have cards similar to baseball trading cards with prophet names and their stats, such as:

    Prophecies that came to pass: 0, or maybe 1 depending on how you "interpret" their extremely vague prophecies.
    Prophecies that have Failed to come to pass: 16
    Money given to support the ministry of these prophets: $330,840.00
    Number of people deceived: 19,449 and counting.

  15. Hello Family of God,

    I have had a most difficult time composing this message due to hindrances brought about by evil forces at work using human agencies. And it's not only through human agencies who are anti-Gospel, but literal nonhuman entities who have made a tremendous effort in trying to put a stop to my ministry, which involves exposing the archenemy and his restless agents of darkness attempting to put an end to me. I ask my dear brothers and sisters in Christ to pray that I may continue my ministry until the time the Lord decides to take me home. I decided to place this message in the false religions forum because counterfeit "Christianity" is not Christianity at all.

    "But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned." (1 Corinthians 2:14)

    A dear brother in Christ who has been given the gift of spiritual discernment was accused of being a "natural man" by a professing "Christian" who belongs to many apostate denominations that you would often see on TBN. These wolves in sheeps clothing make outlandish claims of false healings, gold dust falling from above, and even angel feathers coming down upon them in their local churches. This brother in Christ with the gift of spiritual discernment has made several videos on youtube, and he is widely known as one of the best in the field of the discerning of spirits (cf. 1 Cor. 2:14; 12:10; Phil. 1:9-10; 1 Thess. 5:21; Heb. 4:12; 5:14; 1 Jn. 4:1-6). I read a comment directed at this brother in Christ which read: "This describes this person EXACTLY!" And he was accusing this brother in the Lord as the "natural" man mentioned in 1 Corinthians 2:14 because of the counterfeit miracles this brother in Christ had exposed as fraudulent. Do you see the IRONY in this? So who truly is the "natural" man here?

    The Bible makes a distinction between classes of "beings" and their titles. There are humans, angels, living creatures or beasts (e.g., "cherubim and seraphim"; cf. Gen. 3:24; Ps. 80:1; Isa. 6:2-3; Ezek. 1:1-28; 10:14; Rev. 4:6-8; 19:4), and the Lord God Almighty. The given names of each individual angel reflect their worship of God and His Attributes: e.g., the archangel "Michael", whose name is to be interpreted as, "who is like God?" The answer is NOBODY; and this is an [everlasting] exaltation and praise from the archangel Michael to the Eternal God (cf. Exod. 8:10; 9:14; Deut. 3:24; 33:26; 1 Sam. 2:2; 2 Sam. 7:22; 1 Kin. 8:23; 1 Chron. 17:20; Ps. 86:8; Isa. 46:9; Jer. 10:6-7). They extol and worship the Creator God forever and ever; thus, angelic beings are not capable of being killed or aging; so there would be no reason why angels would "shed" their "feathers" from their wings. The shedding of something from a creature is indicative of something or someone who is capable of aging and expiring (Lk. 20:36).

    I once listened to an erudite Pastor who is True to the Word of God explain to his congregation what will those who will be "left behind" wonder where so many people have disappeared to after the rapture occurs. I have a different take on this: I believe that there will only be a small remnant of True Christians who will be raptured; and because of this, it will not cause a huge stir as to why so MANY people have gone missing. The "few" is in comparison to the population at that time in History, which will be in the billions; so even the "remnant" which has gone home to be with the Lord will be just a small fraction of the Earth's total population. The amount of deception in the apostate church visible today is unprecedented and unparalleled; and a lot of this has to do with professing Christians not taking heed to what the Bible says regarding lies and deception (cf. Matt. 7:15-20; 15:8-9; 24:4,12,24; Mk. 13:22; 2 Cor. 2:11; 10:3-5; 11:3,13-15; Col. 2:8; Eph. 5:6; 6:10-12; 2 Thess. 2:3,9-12,15; 1 Tim. 4:1-3; 2 Tim. 3:1-5,13, 4:3-4; 3:13; 1 Pet. 5:8-9; 2 Pet. 2:1; 1 Jn. 2:18; Jude 1:3; Rev. 3:14-22; 13:13-14; 16:13-14; 20:10). Those who perform these counterfeit miracles profess to back up their claims by citing a passage in Scripture where Jesus said:

    "Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and [greater works than these] shall he do; because I go unto my Father." (John 14:12)

    The context is clear that Jesus is referring to "greater works" than that which He Himself performed, and this is to be evident AFTER His departure and ascension. The apparent and obvious context is to preach the Gospel to all nations through the working of the Holy Spirit indwelt believers; something which Jesus was limited to during His Incarnation as a man being at one place at a time. If in fact this refers to His miracles such as raising the decomposed body of Lazarus from the dead after four days, replacing the ear of Malchus, and multiplying food, then it would also include raising oneself from the dead; after all, Jesus Himself said that He will raise up His temple (i.e., His physical body) after it is put to death, never to die again (Jn. 11:38-47; Matt. 26:51-52; 14:13-21; Jn. 2:19).


  16. It pains me everyday to wake up early in the morning only to discover that there is a 30 minute segment devoted to the Oscars, and this is considered "Breaking News." I pity these actress and actresses who glory in their Academy "Awards" achievements as a result of having squandered countless hours, days, months and even years to see their "dreams" and lifelong pursuit of fame fulfilled; and their reward is a small idol which can neither hear or speak. It is no big surprise that one of Satan's ploys is to prime the pump of the film industry to distract people away from coming to the knowledge of the Truth, and ONLY this is what can set them free. 

    "From that time many of his disciples went back, and walked no more with him. Then said Jesus unto the twelve, Will ye also go away? Then Simon Peter answered him, Lord, to whom shall we go? thou hast the words of [ETERNAL LIFE]. And [WE BELIEVE AND ARE SURE] that thou are the Christ, the Son of the living God." (John 6:66-69)

    "And he said unto me, It is done. I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end. I will give unto him that is athirst of the fountain of the water of life freely. He that overcometh shall inherit all things; and I will be his God, and he shall be my son. But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death." (Revelation 21:6-8)

    God Bless!


  17. "And when he had called the people unto him with his disciples also, he said unto them, Whosoever will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me." (Mark 8:34)

    The sheer number of self-deceived men and women who think they are saved is astounding, and it grieves my heart knowing that there will be MANY who will go away into Eternal Punishment as a result. Satan knows that his time is almost up, so he has sown tares among the wheat to lead others who seek to understand what it means to be a Christian so that they may fall into the pit together with them. The apostates in Christendom masquerade as prophets, apostles, and Pastors, who deceive others and are deceived themselves. This wicked generation seeks after external evidence of the miraculous due to the lack of faith in that which is unseen. Temporal blessings such as wealth, health, and even to be your own god seems to be the norm in apostate Christianity today (cf. Prov. 11:28; Eccles. 5:10; Matt. 6:19-21; 16:26; Mk. 4:18-19; Lk. 12:15; Acts 8:20; 2 Cor. 4:18; Col. 3:2; 1 Tim. 6:9-10,17; Heb. 13:5; Jas. 5:1-20; 1 Jn. 2:16). The devil is a counterfeiter, and he comes with all lying signs and wonders to deceive the non-elect. 

    "No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon." (Matthew 6:24)

    What made you decide to become a Christian? Is it to solve your life problems? To have your best life now? Sadly, it isn't what I can do for the Lord Jesus Christ, but what can God do for ME? This is completely antithetical to taking up ones Cross and to deny oneself; that is, to DIE to SELF. As the apostle Peter said, "Thy money perish with thee."

    Professing to be in Christ and acting and living like the rest of the unbelieving world, or even worse; it is tantamount to a Judas Kiss. Such false converts display NO evidence of being born-again as they are completely devoid of any Divine Love, and mistreat those who are to be our mission field (i.e., the sexually immoral, thieves, etc.) with utter disdain and contempt. Such false converts expose themselves as hypocrites not knowing that they themselves were in the same category as the rest of the unbelieving world of sinners before they supposedly came to the Throne of Grace. 

    You may want to ask yourself this question? Did you TRULY come before the Throne of Grace as one who was spiritually bankrupt? Did you approach the Eternal Throne of God stripped of all your pride and ego? (Lk. 9:23-24; 14:33; Jn. 3:30; 12:24; Rom. 6:8,11-14; 8:12-13; 12:1-2; Gal. 2:20; 5:24; 6:14; Eph. 4:22-23; Phil. 3:8; Col. 3:5; Tit. 2:12; 1 Pet. 4:1-2). Did you come to Him knowing that you are a wretched and depraved sinner who deserves the penalty of Eternal Punishment? If not, then don't tell me that you are a Christian, and it doesn't matter even if you claim to have been saved on such an such month or day. You will only be deceiving yourself! 

    "But I say unto you, That whosoever looketh on a woman to lust after her hath committed adultery with her in his heart. And if thy right eye offend thee, pluck it out, and cast it from thee: for it is profitable for thee that one of thy members should perish, and not that thy whole body should be cast into hell. And if thy right hand offend thee, cut it off, and cast it from thee: for it is profitable for thee that one of thy members should perish, and not that thy whole body should be cast into hell" (Matthew 5:28-30)

    "Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye are like unto whited sepulchres, which indeed appear beautiful outward, but are within full of dead men's bones, and of all uncleanness. Even so ye also outwardly appear righteous unto men, but within ye are full of hypocrisy and iniquity." (Matthew 23:27-28)

    Repentance and Contrition must take first priority on everyone's bucket list; because the ramifications of an unrepentant heart will result in the worst type of torment and horror that one can possibly imagine. Those who sow to the flesh will reap a resurrected body of spiritual ruin and corruption at the Resurrection of the dead (e.g., "pornography, drunkenness, drug addiction, etc.). God shall Judge the secrets of all men and women by Jesus Christ (Rom. 2:16), and this body of spiritual ruin will have no restraints at all from evil; for such wickedness will be amplified in the body suited for dishonor, corruption, and decay. These permanent features of the body of everlasting corruption shall be retained for all of Eternity.

    "He that [covereth his sins] shall not prosper: but whoso [confesseth and forsaketh them] shall have mercy." (Proverbs 28:13)

    Had they have came before the Lord with a broken and contrite spirit, then they would NOW understand that lost sinners are also in need of forgiveness and repentance through the Grace of God through our Lord Jesus Christ. All I ever hear from these tares are hateful and spiteful speech such as, "these scumbags will rot in hell on a skewer as the the bovine excrement that they are. I hope they burn the hottest in the worse possible torment imaginable". So much for the "love" of Christ dwelling in these "Christians". Their pride and arrogance will only lead them to a greater damnation if not repented of such wickedness; for God resists the proud but gives Grace to the Humble (Ps. 138:6; Prov. 3:34; 29:23; Matt. 23:14; Jas. 4:6-7; 1 Pet. 5:5-6). The main reason why professing Christians cannot overcome sin in their lives is because they DO NOT possess the Holy Spirit.

    "I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service." (Romans 12:1)

    In Closing:

    "But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us." (Romans 5:8)

    "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] (Grk. "tapeinon" [present participle] -- i.e., "a lifestyle of humility") himself shall be exalted." (Luke 18:10-14)

    Those who attempt to establish their own righteousness are full of pride; and these are the ones who have the most sins hiding in their hearts, but God knows the hearts of all men and women better than they themselves know their own hearts. For those who are saved, it is the power of God at work in all Genuine Converts: because no one can achieve Victory over sin and immorality in their lives without the Imputed Righteousness of Christ (cf. Rom. 6:14,22; 8:13; 13:14; 1 Cor. 6:11; 15:57; 2 Cor. 5:17; 7:1; Gal. 5:16,24; Eph. 2:10; 5:18; Phil. 4:13; Heb. 4:16; 2 Pet. 1:4; 1 Jn. 3:6-10; 5:4).

    "For the grace of God that bringeth salvation hath appeared to all men, Teaching us that, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, we should live soberly, righteously, and godly, in this present world; Looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ; Who gave himself for us, that he might redeem us from all iniquity, and purify unto himself a peculiar people, zealous of good works." (Titus 2:11-14)

    The Grace of God leads to a forsaking of ones lifestyle of sin and worldliness because of the Sacrificial Love demonstrated by God towards us first (1 Jn. 4;19). We Love God because He first Loved us, and because we Love God, we will keep His Commandments out of Gratitude for a debt that can never be repaid (Jn. 14:21). His Commandments are to live a godly life dominated and led by the Holy Spirit, and to reciprocate Divine Love towards God first and foremost. We are also commanded to give this greatest type of Love towards our fellow Christians in return; even the lost in anticipation that they may come to the knowledge of the Truth and be Saved (cf. Prov. 24:17; 25:21-22; Matt. 5:44-46; Lk. 6:27,35; Rom. 12:14; 1 Cor. 13:4-8; 1 Tim. 2:4; Jas. 2:1; 1 Pet. 3:9; 1 Jn. 4:7; Jude 1:16). This isn't Salvation by works, these are the results of someone who has TRULY been born-again.


  18. Here is a short list of signs indicating a high probability that the one "professing" to be Christian is not saved:

    • NO broken and contrite spirit.
    • NO understanding of the seriousness of sin before the MOST Just and Holy God.
    • NO desire to forsake and repent of their sins.
    • NO fruit of the Spirit at all.
    • NO evidence of good works.
    • NO understanding regarding the things of the Spirit of God.
    • Their prayers are NOT answered.
    • A life completely devoid of faithful obedience to the Lord.
    • NO hatred of sin.
    • NO desire to please the Lord.
    • An unbroken pattern of sinning accompanied by NO Victory over sin.
    • Lacking Faith in God (most likely because they have never established a saving relationship with God to begin with).

    Characteristics of a child of GOD:

    • 1). Continual Obedience.
    • 2). An increase of hatred towards sin, and an ever-growing sorrow and mourning for ones own sin when committed.
    • 3). A Desire to Please the Lord.
    • 4). Humility
    • 5). Divine Love towards your brothers and sisters in Christ, and a love towards the lost and their need for Salvation.
    • 6). A Hunger and Thirst for Righteousness and Holy Living.
    • 7). Possessing an understanding concerning the things of the Spirit of God.
    • 8). Answered prayers.
    • 9). Confessing Jesus Christ in front of others about His Person and Divine Accomplishment.
    • 10). Fruits of the Spirit (lit., "THE Fruit of the Spirit" -- i.e., "the nine inextricably linked characteristics as a cluster of one who has TRULY been born from above"; cf. Gal. 5:22-23).
    • 11). Laying UP treasures in Heaven above.
    • 12). Delighting in Serving the Lord as a Labor of Love.

  19. "Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that heareth my word, and believeth on him that sent me, [hath everlasting life] (Grk. "echei zoen aionion" i.e., "the believer possesses Eternal Life at the moment of Saving Faith"), and shall NOT come into condemnation; but is [passed from death unto life] (Grk. "alla metabebeken ek tou thanatou eis ten zoen" [perfect indicative] -- i.e., "the believer has Salvation at the moment they believe from their heart, and can never fall into condemnation from that moment on")." (John 5:24)

    The one who possesses Saving Faith is assured Eternal Life upon the moment they Truly believe the spoken words of the Son of God from their HEART. The words "is passed" is in the Perfect Tense, indicating that the Genuine Believer is Eternally Secure from the Wrath of God. This is an action that has been completed by the Believer once and for all, never having to be repeated again. A stark contrast between the absolute certainty of ones Salvation at the moment he/she believes [FROM THE HEART] the Gospel Message of the Son of God (e.g., "the penitent thief on the Cross to the right of Jesus"), and the exact opposite: which is a hardened heart of unbelief at the moment he/she rejects the Words of Jesus Christ, and His Father who sent Him. This type of unbelief is irrevocable. No human can determine who permanently believes or disbelieves the saving knowledge of the Gospel [FROM THEIR HEART], but the very man or woman who believes or not. The only exception is made by God alone who searches the deepest recesses within the heart of every being with a conscience.

    "He that is unjust, let him [be unjust still]: and he which is filthy, let him [be filthy still]: and he that is righteous, let him [be righteous still]: and he that is holy, let him [be holy still]." (Revelation 22:11)

    The above passage is not about the Judicial Hardening of sinners (cf. Gen. 50:20; Ex. 7:3; 9:12; Deut. 2:30; Matt. 23:37; Mk. 4:11-12; Rom. 11:8; Acts 2:23; 4:28), but the finality of the rebellious and unrepentant sinner who has crossed the rubicon. The action verbs: unjust, filthy, righteous and holy, are all in the aorist imperative; which means that those who are unjust, filthy, righteous and holy, will remain that way throughout all of Eternity. Their decisions can NEVER be reversed once they have chosen (in their heart) whether to repent or not. This final and decisive act on their part will seal their fate once they have fixed their hearts regarding whom they choose to follow: that is, God or Satan.

    "He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not [is condemned already] (Grk. "ede kekritai" [perfect passive indicative] -- i.e., "the sinner is consigned to Eternal Fire at the very moment he/she believes NOT in their HEART the message of the Son of God"), because [he hath not believed] (Grk. "hoti me pepisteuken" [perfect indicative] -- i.e., "the sinner's heart is hardened to where his/her unbelief is irrevocable") in the name of the only begotten Son of God." (John 3:18)

    There are MANY who fail to fully realize why every individual on this planet deserves the Divine Judgment of Almighty God, and why there needs to be reconciliation between man and God (Jn. 3:18-19; 2 Cor. 5:19; 1 Tim. 2:4; 1 Thess. 5:9; Tit. 2:11; 2 Pet. 3:9). Many are those who "profess" to be Christian that have never been rightly taught why they needed to call upon the Lord to be Saved in the first place. Apostate "Christianity" is producing False converts at breakneck speed; and false undershepherds are compromising the Truth of Scripture to obviate the need for repentance (e.g., "homosexuality condoned, or being in lockstep with heretics"). Here are several reasons why MANY "nominal believers" have failed to understand the necessity for forgiveness and establishing peace with God:

    What concerns me the most in today's Christendom is the number of Christians professing to be saved, and the reality of this is many are self-deceived as a result of false teachings and hirelings in the pulpit. When I deal with people claiming to be Christian and exhibit NO fruits of the Spirit, or the understanding of the things of the Spirit of God, this sets off red flags. I find myself evangelizing not to the lost, but to those who "profess" to be Christians and display NO EVIDENCE AT ALL of ever being regenerated by the Holy Spirit, or the results and characteristics that should follow Post-Conversion. There are even those who have personally written in their Bibles the Month, day, and year they supposedly got saved. The problem arises from a lack of knowledge concerning the Message of the Gospel. They claim to be saved because:

    • 1). They repeated a rote prayer that their Pastor recited.
    • 2). They became very emotional to the point of tears during an altar call.
    • 3). They attend church every Sunday, or even several times per week.
    • 4). They have an intellectual assent of the Scripture, but not saving faith.
    • 5). They do "good" works.
    • 6). They "keep" the commandments.
    • 7). They prayed to God to save them from Eternal Punishment, and that's it.
    • 8). They were baptized when they were a child.

  20. Hello Family of God,

    "What is man, that thou art mindful of him? and the son of man, that thou visitest him?" (Psalm 8:4) 

    Quite a tiny world called Earth in a cosmos of near endless celestial bodies; and yet the Omnipresent Creator presents to the inhabitants of this infinitesimal world an Unfathomable Love which surpasses all comprehension of finite man. God is too often accused of being mean-spirited by unbelievers, and this is because they do NOT know Him who takes no pleasure in the death of the wicked (Ezek. 18:32; 33:11; Rom. 5:8; 1 Cor. 13:6). However, it would be an injustice on God's part if He were to allow unrepentant sinners entrance into His Eternal Kingdom (cf. 1 Cor. 6:9-10; Gal. 5:19-21; Eph. 5:5; 1 Tim. 1:9; Heb. 12:14; Rev. 22:15). I find it jaw-dropping how the unregenerate believe that they have the right to redefine objective moral values and turn it on its head (Isa. 5:20; Amos. 5:7; Jn. 3:19; Rom. 7:7; 13:1-7; 2 Tim. 4:3; 2 Pet. 2:1). They also fail to realize that it is God Himself who is the transcendent anchor point and author of morality.

    "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)

    I want to begin this message by pressing the issue regarding the question, "what must I do to be saved?" I will also be outlining the basics of knowing with absolute certainty about your Salvation being secured, and what precedes it. Nothing can be of more importance than the fate of ones eternal soul, and everyone "professing" to be IN Christ needs to do a spiritual inventory of themselves to determine if they are indeed authentic Christians. Scripture states that it is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the Living God (2 Cor. 5:11; Heb. 3:12; 10:31). How so? 

    God is the LIVING GOD (Grk. "zontos theou" [present participle] -- i.e., "The Life Giving Immortal and Eternal God"), and since God is Eternal, the consequences of rejecting Him and His Son are Eternal (2 Chron. 36:16; Isa. 5:24; Matt. 10:33; 12:36-37; Lk. 12:9; Jn. 3:36; 12:48). Furthermore, the Attributes of God are Immutable; and for this reason, His Perfect Righteousness and Retribution towards unrepentant sinners are Eternal and unchanging as well (cf. Num. 23:19; Ps. 102:25-27; Isa. 46:10; Mal. 3:6; Tit. 1:2; Heb. 6:17; 13:8; Jas. 1:17; et al.). The Word of God COMMANDS that all believers must examine themselves to be certain that they TRULY belong to the Family of God (cf. Job 13:23; Jer. 31:19; Hag. 1:5-7; 1 Cor. 11:27-31; 2 Cor. 13:5; Gal. 6:4). Why are those who "profess" Jesus Christ as their Lord rejected by the Lord Himself in The Day of Judgment? Why are these hypocrites denied entrance into the Kingdom of God and then cast into outer darkness? Here are some of the reasons why:

    • 1). These false converts are guilty of lip-service.
    • 2). They have performed counterfeit miracles, or were deceived into believing that their lying signs and wonders were authentic.
    • 3). They were filled with dead mens bones and all hypocrisy.
    • 4). They believed that they could "achieve" Salvation through their "good" works.
    • 5). The Lord Jesus Christ NEVER had a Saving Relationship with these "self-proclaimed" men and women of God.

  21. MANY are those who take issue with the LORDSHIP of Christ, and the main reason why this violates their conscience is because they want to enjoy their sins without any repercussions. They do not want to be held accountable and submit to the Lord Jesus Christ; who is to be their Sovereign and Master. Satan will whisper in their ears that their sins are justifiable, and there is no need for them to submit to the Lordship of Christ. Only those who are DOING the Will of God as a way of Life will enter into the Kingdom of our Dear Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. Sinning habitually is in complete opposition to the nature of God and His work in regeneration. Can someone who claims to be indwelt by the HOLY Spirit live a life of impurity? Here are a few reasons why "professing" Christians want to be their "own" master:

    • They are living a lifestyle of habitual sinning (Rom. 8:7; Gal. 5:19-21; Heb. 10:26-27; 1 Jn. 2:3-6,15-17; 3:6-10).
    • They are turning the Grace of God into lasciviousness (Jude 4; see also above).
    • They are a new convert (1 Tim. 3:6;1 Pet. 2:2).
    • They are a false convert (the parable of the sower and weeds; Matt. 13-30).
    • They have a "form" of godliness (cf. Matt. 23:25; Tit. 1:16) but deny its power (2 Tim. 3:5).

    "And there shall be no more curse: but the throne of God and of the Lamb shall be in it; and his servants shall serve him: And they shall see his face; and his name shall be in their foreheads." (Revelation 22:3-4)

    The noun "servants" (Grk. "doulos"; lit., "SLAVE") has been mistranslated in nearly every version of the Bible as "servants." If the scribes were honest about what the Greek noun [DOULOS] TRULY MEANT, then they would have translated the word "servant" as [SLAVE]. And the verb "serve" (Grk. "latreuo" [future indicative] -- i.e., "TO WORSHIP God and the Lamb for all of Eternity") denotes servility TO God and of the Lamb from His children FOREVER.

    "I tell you, NAY: but, except ye repent, ye shall all likewise perish." (Luke 13:3)

    "And the seventh angel sounded; and there were great voices in heaven, saying, [THE KINGDOMS OF THIS WORLD ARE BECOME THE KINGDOMS OF OUR LORD, AND OF HIS CHRIST; AND HE SHALL REIGN FOR EVER AND EVER] (Grk. "he basileia tou kosmou egeneto tou hemon kyriou kai tou autou Christou kai basileusei aionas ton aionon")." (Revelation 11:15)

    The sovereignty of the world will transition into One Kingdom which will then BELONG to the Messiah, and He will Govern it with Absolute Authority and Rule. Christ will hand over the Kingdom to His Father after the completion of the thousand year reign on Earth. The ministry of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit will be finished, and God will then be ALL IN ALL (1 Cor. 15:28). That is, the Triune God will sit on His Eternal Throne of Glory where HE WILL REIGN FOREVER AND EVER in a New Heaven and a New Earth where righteousness will dwell (Isa. 2:4; 66:22; Dan. 2:44; 7:14; Lk. 1:33; 2 Pet. 1:11; 3:13; Rev. 22:1). When the Lord returns to establish His Eternal Reign, He will weed out those who honor Jesus Christ with their lips only, and not with their hearts, and the harvesters will gather these hypocrites into clumps and throw them into a furnace of fire where they will weep and grind their teeth in Everlasting Torment (Isa. 29;13; Matt. 11:24; 13:49-50; 15:8; 25:30; Lk. 13:28; Tit. 1:16).

    "But and if that [evil servant] shall [say in his heart], [My lord] delayeth his coming; And shall begin to smite his fellowservants, and to eat and drink with the drunken; The lord of that servant shall come in a day when he looketh not for him, and in an hour that he is not aware of, And shall cut him asunder, and appoint him his portion with the [hypocrites] (Grk. "hypokriton"; i.e., "the unbelievers" cf. Matt. 22:13): there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth." (Matthew 24:48-51)

    "Beloved, now are we the sons of God, and it doth not yet appear what we shall be: but we know that, when he shall appear, we shall be like him; for we shall see him as he is. And every man that hath this hope in him [PURIFIETH HIMSELF] (Grk. "hagnizei heauton" [present indicative - third person singular] -- i.e., "to make oneself pure as Jesus Christ until His Return"), even as he is pure." (1 John 3:2-3)

    "And every one that heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them not, shall be likened unto a foolish man, which built his house upon the sand: And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell: and great was the fall of it." (Matthew 7:26-27)

    "But be ye [DOERS OF THE WORD], and [NOT HEARERS ONLY], deceiving your own selves." (James 1:22)

    "Which in his times he shall shew, who is the blessed and only Potentate, the King of kings, and Lord of lords; Who only hath immortality, dwelling in the light which no man can approach unto; whom no man hath seen, nor can see: to whom be honour and power everlasting. Amen." (1 Timothy 6:15-16)

    "The Lord is nigh unto them that are of a broken heart; and saveth such as be of a contrite spirit. Many are the afflictions of the righteous: but the Lord delivereth him out of them all. He keepeth all his bones: not one of them is broken." (Psalm 34:18-20)

    "And he had power to [give life unto the image] (Grk. "dounai pneuma te eikoni"; i.e., "most likely an image operating with artificial intelligence") of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed." (Revelation 13:15)

    All those who refuse to submit to the Sovereign Authority of the Lord God Almighty will be handed over to a reprobate mind; and God will send them strong delusion (Grk. "energeian planes"; lit., "energy of deceit") insomuch that they will literally worship the image of the Antichrist (cf. Rom. 1:18; 2 Tim. 3:8; 2 Thess. 12:11-12; Tit. 1:16). This image or resemblance of the Antichrist erected by the False Prophet will be able to speak using "artificial" intelligence. God is NOT mocked, and as a result . . . those who are not written in the Lamb's Book of Life before the foundation of the World will be deceived into worshiping not only the Antichrist, but a replica of him operating on "artificial intelligence". They will be under the influence and control of something which does NOT even possess a TRUE conscience mind. This "image" will most likely have enough data and information to keep track of all who have taken the Mark of the Beast (Rev. 16:2; 19:20).

    "And the kings of the earth, and the great men, and the rich men, and the chief captains, and the mighty men, and every bondman, and every free man, hid themselves in the [dens] (Grk. "spelaia"; i.e., "a hideout or underground bunker, shelter, or base") and in the rocks of the mountains; And said to the mountains and rocks, Fall on us, and hide us from the face of him that sitteth on the throne, and from the wrath of the Lamb: For the great day of his wrath is come; and who shall be able to stand?" (Revelation 6:15-17)

    As the old proverbs goes without saying: "Absolute power corrupts absolutely". Those who have been in collusion with evil and demonic entities will try to protect themselves by hiding in underground bunkers or bases; and they know full well, as with these wicked and devilish creatures, that it is God Himself who is pouring out His Full Wrath upon them. Their lust for power on the Earth has corrupted their hearts along with the forces of darkness who have been around since ancient times. All their wasted efforts in preparing for the Great Day of God Almighty is all for nothing, and they are powerless against the King of Kings and the Lord of Lords regardless of their technological achievements. Even with the combined efforts of humans and the rulers of the darkness of this world, they will be rendered defenseless (cf. Matt. 12:45; 1 Cor. 10:20-21; 2 Cor. 4:4; Eph. 2:2; 2 Tim. 4:1; Rev. 20:7-10). Trying to "hide" from the Lord Jesus Christ after realizing that they are outmatched just proves that they will never repent of their wicked deeds (Rev. 9:20; 16:9). If you choose not to surrender to the Lordship of Jesus Christ, then you are a child of the devil; and such unrepentant behavior is not only arrogant, but it will ultimately lead you to humiliation and utter defeat as you will one day bow before the Lordship of Jesus Christ (Jn. 8:44-45; Phil. 2:10-11).

    "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] (Grk. "phylia"; i.e., "the nations") 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] (i.e., "north, south, east, and west"), from one end of heaven to the other." (Matthew 24:29-31)

    Some theologians have posited that the SIGN OF THE SON OF MAN is the Cross, but this interpretation does not work for several reasons: one reason is that the SIGN will be "unique" in the sense that it stands alone; as opposed to a Roman Cross which was a common method of capital punishment during the time when Jesus Christ walked the Earth. We must also take into consideration that the SIGN is a subjective genitive case in the masculine gender (i.e., "Christ Himself is THE SIGN"). We can almost be certain that the Sign of the Son of Man is the Shekinah Glory of Almighty God (i.e., "the Presence of God, or the Parousia" -- cf. Matt. 16:28; 17:2; Rev. 1:16). The stars falling, and the skies being shaken with great force is an impending omen that will lead to the Sign of the Son of Man in Heaven; and the inhabitants of the Earth will set their eyes on these events occurring in the heavens with great fear. Jesus came as a gentle lamb at the first advent, and He will return as LORD OF ALL at His Second Coming.

    "Men's [hearts failing them for fear] (Grk. "apopsychonton" [present participle] -- lit., "continually terrified to the point of death"), and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth: for the powers of heaven shall be shaken." (Luke 21:26)

    The blazing Glory of God the Almighty will be intensified as a result of the sun being darkened, and the moon not giving forth her light (v. 29). The Transfiguration on the Mount was a foretaste and a foreshadowing of what is to come ahead in the future when Christ returns to set up His 1,000 year reign on the Earth (Deut. 30:3-5; Zech. 9:14-15; 12:10-14; 13:1; Amos 9:11-15; Jer. 30:18; 32:44; 33:11,26; Joel 3:1; Matt. 16:27; 24:31; 26:64; 1 Thess. 5:23; Tit. 2:13; Rev. 1:7). Christ will be LORD over all when He returns to rule the world with a rod of iron with PERFECT righteousness and judgment at the Second Advent. You can either bend your knee to the Lord Jesus Christ while you still have another breath to take, or you can make the imprudent decision to live like the rest of the unbelieving world and wallow in your sins.

    In Closing:

    When all is said and done, you want to be absolutely certain that Jesus Christ is TRULY your LORD and your Redeemer; and only then can you have the peace and assurance that you will enter in through the gates of the Eternal City of God. My words may seem crass to those who may read this, but that which I say it taken out of Holy Scripture. I write this with great concern because I care so much about the lost that it brings me to tears every day. It grieves me that our Lord Jesus Christ said that the road to Eternal Life is narrow, and only a few find it. If you are uncertain about your Salvation, then please take the time to consider what I have written. And if you are not a child of God, and you feel the Spirit tugging at you, then now is the time to respond in humility.


  22. The methodology of alter calls and the sinners prayer are often accompanied with sappy music to get the flow going by stirring up the unconverted with emotions that have absolutely nothing to do with godly sorrow (2 Cor. 7:10). Take away the attraction of the music playing in the background, and you will see just how much of a difference there will be without it. Lucifer has the ability to rouse intense emotions through music, especially with musical instruments that are otherworldly -- so be not deceived. He has given abilities and talents to many in the secular music industry, and it has cost them their souls when their time was up. Just "believing" as the "devils" do is not Saving Faith (Jas. 2:14,19). Here is what Contemporary Christianity has become: There is NO:

    • Commitment
    • Submission to Christ
    • Giving your life to Christ
    • Surrendering your life to Christ
    • Repentance
    • Forsaking your sins
    • Making Christ Lord of your life

    To be continued . . .

    I want to make this as explicit as I possibly can regarding the title LORD. The title LORD (Grk. "Kyrion"; i.e., "Master, sir, One who is possesses Supreme Authority" -- e.g., "God and Christ") in Romans 10:9-10 does in fact refer to His Deity, and as the LORD of all. There are those who have the wrong idea that one can make Jesus Christ their Savior, but not their Lord -- or make Him Savior now, and then somehow make Him LORD later on in their life. LORD and Savior are inextricably linked, and cannot be separated due to their attributes. The Bible clearly teaches that Jesus Christ is BOTH LORD and SAVIOR. You may have heard someone professing to be a Christian say, "I thank the [LORD] Jesus Christ [SO MUCH] for saving me from the penalty of my sins through His atoning Sacrifice of the Cross, and I am forever grateful for this undeserved gift from God -- but I refuse to let go of my sinful desires and walk in the newness of life" (Matt. 7:21; Rom. 6:4,6,16; 8:7,11; 2 Cor. 5:17; 6:14-18; Gal. 2:20; 3:27; Col. 3:1; Tit. 2:11-14; Heb. 5:9; 1 Jn. 2:3-6).

    He is LORD: (Acts 2:34-36; Rom. 1:1-4; 1 Cor. 8:5-6; 15:57; 2 Cor. 4:5; Phil. 2:8-11; 3:1; 4:1-4; Col. 3:15-17, 23-24).

    He is SAVIOR: (Jn. 3:16-18; 4:40-42; Acts 5:29-33; 13:16; Rom. 10:9-10; Phil. 3:20-21; 2 Tim. 1:9-11; 1 Jn. 4:14).

    "If we suffer, we shall also reign with him: if we deny him, he also will deny us: If we believe not, yet [HE ABIDETH FAITHFUL: HE CANNOT DENY HIMSELF]." (2 Timothy 2:12-13)

    To be continued . . .

    The above verse does not teach us that Jesus Christ is faithful to keep us saved if we stop believing; it is teaching us that Jesus Christ is faithful to act accordingly to His immutable nature. Christ will dole out retribution to those who apostatize from the faith: for this is the due penalty for their sins, which is Eternal Punishment (Ps. 72:2; Isa. 11:3-4; Jn. 5:22,27; 8:16; Rom. 2:16; 2 Tim. 4:1; Rev. 19:11; 20:11-15). The sin of apostasy carries even a greater punishment than those who never claimed to have been saved to begin with (Matt. 10:15; Heb. 6:4-8; 10:26-31; 2 Pet. 2:1-3,20-22; Jude 4).

    The Doctrine concerning the Lordship of Jesus Christ does NOT teach us that we can "merit" Salvation through our "good" works. No one can be saved without a correct understanding of the Biblical doctrine of repentance taught in the Word of God; and it is then do we come to the realization of just how wicked and evil we are in the sight of the MOST Holy and Just God. The Thrice Holy God of all Creation is intrinsically *self-sufficient* in and of Himself, and apart from every creature (i.e., "The Aseity of God"). Salvation is utterly impossible unless the Spirit of God draws the sinner to Him with His Eternal Spirit, and not by what many theologians refer to as "prevenient grace" (Jn. 6:44; Rom. 3:1-19; Eph. 2:1-3; 2 Cor. 4:4; 2 Tim. 1:9). We MUST understand that we are spiritually bankrupt in our fallen condition, and that we are to turn to the ONLY one who can reconcile us from being the enemies of God to becoming His children (Isa. 57:15; 61:1-2; Ps. 34:18; Matt. 5:3-4; Jn. 12:24; Rom. 3:10). Because God first loved us sacrificially, we love God in return; and our love for Him produces a love which is demonstrated by living a godly and holy life before our Lord, Savior and Master (cf. Jn. 14:15-17,21; Gal. 2:20; Eph. 2:4-5; Jas. 1:12; 1 Jn. 4:16). This is why martyrs can face persecution and death without fear or angst, because their love is perfected in Christ our Lord (1 Jn. 4:18).

    "For godly sorrow worketh repentance to salvation not to be repented of: but the sorrow of the world worketh death." (2 Corinthians 7:10)

    "Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but [HE THAT DOETH] (Grk. "ho poion" [present participle] -- i.e., "the one who lives their life for the LORD in continual obedience") 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] (Grk. "egnon oudepote hymas" [aorist tense] -- "apochoreite" [present imperative] -- ie., "Jesus commanding the hypocrites and unbelievers to leave His presence") from me, [YE THAT WORK INIQUITY] (Grk. "hoi ergazomenoi anomian" [present middle or passive participle] -- lit., "you who always do lawlessness")." (Matthew 7:21-23)

    The Lord Jesus Christ having NEVER KNOWN these false converts is His way of declaring to them that He never HAD an Intimate and Saving Relationship with the one "professing" to be Christian in the first place; not in the past, and even until that moment when Jesus declares to these hypocrites that they do NOT BELONG to Him. This should be a sobering thought to anyone "professing" to be in Christ, and to those who are living a lifestyle of sinning habitually without repentance; such men and women will be in for a rude awakening if they fail to take heed to this most urgent plea. This is why The Holy Spirit through Paul commands that each and every "professing" Christian to EXAMINE (Grk. "peirazo"; present imperative) THEMSELVES to see if they are in FACT Genuine Believers, lest they be found as REPROBATES (Grk. "adokimos"; lit., "not approved") when it is TOO LATE (2 Cor. 13:5; Jas. 2:14-26).

    "Know ye not that the unrighteous [SHALL NOT] inherit the kingdom of God? [BE NOT DECEIVED]: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind, Nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God." (1 Corinthians 6:9-10)

    To be continued . . .

     

    There is no such thing as a "carnal" Christian in the sense that he/she will allow their fleshly desires to enslave them (cf. Jn. 8:34; Rom. 6:16-20; 8:5-8,13; 1 Cor. 6:9-10; Gal. 5:19-21; 1 Tim. 1:10-11; 1 Pet. 3:18; 4:3). The Bible uses the word "carnal" to refer to a flesh and blood body, and it is also used to refer to living in like manner as the unregenerate (cf. 1 Jn. 2:16). When the Bible speaks of the deeds of the flesh, it speaks of a linear, continuous action. This pattern of behavior is completely contrary to someone who has been regenerated and made alive in Christ. These are those who "mortify" the works of the flesh (Rom. 8:13).

    "For we know that the law is spiritual: but I am carnal (Grk. "sarkinos"; i.e., "physical" -- cf. Rom. 7:24; Col. 1:22), sold under sin." (Romans 7:14)

    "For they that are after the flesh do mind the things of the flesh; but they that are after the Spirit the things of the Spirit. For [TO BE CARNALLY MINDED IS DEATH] (Grk. "phronema tes sarkos thanatos"; i.e., "a propensity for sinful actions as a way of living"); but to be spiritually minded is life and peace. Because the carnal mind is enmity against God: for it is not subject to the law of God, neither indeed can be. So then they that are in the flesh cannot please God." (Romans 8:5-8)

    "Jesus answered and said unto him, [IF ANY MAN LOVE ME, HE WILL KEEP MY WORDS]: and my Father will love him, and [WE WILL COME UNTO HIM, AND MAKE OUR ABODE WITH HIM]." (John 14:23)


  23. "He that [dwelleth] (Heb. "yashab" [active participle in the qal stem] i.e., "to continually remain") in [the secret place of the most high] (Heb. "cether"; i.e., "protection") shall [abide] (Heb. "luwn" [imperfect tense in the hithpalpel stem] under the shadow of the Almighty." (Psalm 91:1)

    Most nominal Christians complain about their "right" to exercise "free will" -- but just how "free" is a Christian's will if Jesus Christ is TRULY their LORD? The Word of God explicitly states that only those who live the Christian life will abide forever (Matt. 6:10; 7:21; Rom. 8:28; 1 Thess. 4:3; 1 Pet. 3:17; 1 Jn. 2:17; et al.). How free is a Christian's will if it is *God's Will* that ought to take precedence in the life of the one professing to be in Christ? This is why the Word of God commands every Christian to deny themselves and follow Jesus Christ (Lk. 9:23; Jn. 12:24; Rom. 6:11-14; 8:12-13; 12:1-2; Gal. 2:20; 6:14; Eph. 4:22-24; Col. 3:5; 1 Pet. 4:2). You only have two options: you can be continually disobedient and exercise your "free will", which only proves that you are a false convert; or . . . you can obey the Commands of your Lord Jesus Christ and bend your knee to His Will instead, which proves that you are a Genuine Christian. If you are a True Convert, then you really don't have much of a CHOICE. You can have your FREE WILL if you "choose" to submit to the Will of God. How so?

    "If the Son therefore shall make you [FREE], ye shall be [FREE] indeed." (John 8:36)

    "Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter! Woe unto them that are wise in their own eyes, and prudent in their own sight!" (Isaiah 5:20-21)

    "That if [THOU SHALT CONFESS] (Grk. "homologese" [aorist subjunctive] -- i.e., "to acknowledge", cf. Rom. 10b) with thy mouth the [LORD JESUS] (Grk. "Iesoun Kyrion"; i.e., "The Supreme Master and Sovereign who has Absolute Authority over all"), and [SHALT BELIEVE] (Grk. "pisteuses" [aorist active subjunctive] -- i.e., "to entrust with your mind", cf. Rom. 10a) in thine [HEART] (Grk. "kardia" ; i.e., "with your mind") that God hath raised him from the dead, [THOU SHALT BE SAVED] (Grk. "sothese" [future passive indicative] -- i.e., "to delivered or rescued from the penalty of sin and Eternal Punishment at the time of ones confession"). For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation." (Romans 10:9-10)

    You may have heard Pastors and preachers tell sinners to repeat such words as "Ask Jesus to come into your heart", or "Jesus is standing at the door of your heart, and there are no knobs on the outside . . . you have to let Him in." Would it make a difference if there was a knob on the outside if you were the one to let Jesus Christ in? Is it possible that there are genuinely saved people who came to Christ in such manner? Sure it's possible; but when we are dealing with an important issue such as the fate of ones soul, It would be wise not to use this approach. Furthermore, local churches are led by the shepherd of that congregation to give instruction on godly and holy living using the Word of God, and to build up the Body of Believers to better serve the Lord (Acts 20:28; Eph. 4:12; 1 Tim. 3:1-16; 2 Tim. 2:15; 4:2; Tit. 1:5-9; Heb. 13:17; 1 Pet. 5:2-3). Misinterpretations of what genuine belief entails have been instrumental in leading many to believe that they were saved as a result of this; and this has led millions of false converts to an Eternal Hell.

  24. Hello Family of God . . . or NOT,

    "Then said one unto him, [LORD], are there few that be saved? And he said unto them, [Strive] (Grk. "agonizesthe" [present imperative] -- i.e., "to struggle intensely; a continuous effort to strenuously contend as the athletes did through exertion") to enter in at the strait gate: for many, I say unto you, will seek to enter in, and shall not be able." (Luke 13:23-24)

    Brackets and ALL CAPS are used for [EMPHASIS]. Please excuse my grammatical inaccuracies and errors in punctuation; as I am a fallen creature who is capable of making mistakes here on Earth. Though some of my words may seem harsh, it is never my intention to verbally harm others in a negative manner; but rather it is to stir wayward Christians to be faithful slaves of the LORD, and to urge the unrepentant who may think that they are saved but are not; that they may surrender their hearts over to the Lord God so that they may be saved -- because tomorrow is never promised to anyone (cf. Ps. 90:12; Prov. 27:1; Rom. 13:11; 2 Cor. 6:1-2; Eph. 5:15-17; Jas. 4:13-15).

    Do not just assume that every thing which I have written here is 100% true -- even if it were to be so. More often than not, many Pastors, preachers and evangelists sand off the rough edges of the Gospel message to present it as palatable to the lost in hopes that this method of preaching would draw sinners to Repentance and Salvation (cf. Matt. 10:32-33; Mk. 8:38; Jn. 4:24; 8:32; Rom. 1:16-18; 1 Cor. 1:23; 2 Cor. 10:4-5; Col. 3:23; 2 Tim. 1:8; 2:15; 1 Pet. 4:16). This poses a problem and can be disastrous if the WHOLE COUNSEL OF GOD is not understood as it ought to be, so please take the time to study this out for yourself so that you may have peace and assurance; and DO NOT forget to pray to the Lord so that He may illuminate your understanding concerning the Word of God (cf. Acts 20:27; Eph. 3:6-12; 2 Tim. 3:16).

    To be continued . . .

    The duty which has been assigned to me is to expose those who claim to walk in the light, but are secretly living in the darkness of the night. The Apostles would be appalled if they were to experience what this world has become since their departure -- even if it were for just one week. I do understand that the number of the inhabitants of this world has increased substantially over two millennia; and as a result of this population boom, the increase of leaven has permeated throughout Christendom. Spiritual wickedness and corruption has spread like gangrene within the supposed "body" of believers. I will also discuss how we are to live in this world as slaves of our Lord Jesus Christ, and what mindset are we to hold to according to the Bible (cf. Matt. 5:1-12; 6:24; Rom. 12:1-2; Eph. 4:1-6; Col. 3:5-10; 2 Tim. 3:16-17; Tit. 2:12-13; 2 Pet. 1:3-4; et al).

    I have heard many Christians who have told me that they "feel" saved at times, and then express doubt as to whether they are even saved at all in other moments in their life. There should NEVER be any doubt regarding one's Salvation if the one "professing" to be in Christ is living a godly and holy life pleasing to the Lord (Jn. 5:24; 6:37; 8:31-32; 10:27-30; Rom. 5:1; 8:1,15-16,35,38-39; 10:9; 2 Cor. 13:5; Phil. 1:6; Col. 2:2; 2 Tim. 1:12; Tit. 3:5; 1 Pet. 1:5; 2 Pet. 1:10-11; 1 Jn. 2:3; 3:9-10,14; 4:6; 5:11-13,18). Doubt is the consequence of disobedience and distrust to the Commands contained in sacred Scripture; and if one fails to take the much needed time to read and study the Bible as a priority with due diligence, then this will most assuredly bring about uncertainty in the heart of a Christian.

    To be continued . . .

    How Sovereign is the LORD GOD ALMIGHTY? We know that His Divine Providence is working ALL THINGS together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose (Rom. 8:28). He declares the End from the Beginning. When the timing is ripe, Satan will eventually be flung into the Eternal Lake of Fire where he will be tormented day and night for ever and ever (Rev. 20:10). The adversary has been storing up Wrath since his rebellion in the third heaven until now, and he will pay the severest of all penalties for his Treachery as a result of having led billions to Eternal Damnation. Even though the devil knows what the Scripture says regarding his fate, there is absolutely NOTHING he can do to alter it no matter how much effort he puts into it.

    Since Satan's nature is fixed as a leopard which is unable to change its spots, he will act accordingly with his desires (cf. Jer. 13:23; Matt. 16:23; Jn. 8:44; Rev. 20:7). The decisions in which Satan will "choose" to perform are revealed in Holy Scripture; and these are the immutable actions and motives of a being who exhibits the worst kind of evil there can possibly be. We can observe the decisions in which he will make in the future as written in the Book of Revelation, and this cannot be altered (even by Satan himself; hypothetically speaking) because there isn't any other creature in existence who can make choices and decisions more wicked and deceiving than Satan himself.

    "And why [CALL] (Grk. "kaleite" [present indicative] -- i.e., "these false converts continue to call Jesus their Lord, but their lifestyle proves that they have never TRULY been born-again") ye me, Lord, Lord, and [DO NOT] (Grk. "ou poieite" [present indicative] -- i.e., "continual disobedience") the things which I say?" (Luke 6:46)

    If we were to carefully and diligently study all the verb tenses found in the Old Testament Hebrew and New Testament Greek, we would discover that most of them are in the IMPERATIVE (i.e., "a command") when it is God or Jesus Christ who is speaking. There are more IMPERATIVES in the words of Jesus Christ than in the words of any other person speaking in the New Testament. It is clear that the reason for this is because Jesus Christ is Lord over all; and as our Master and Sovereign, He gives direct orders with authority to His slaves who are to OBEY every word in which He speaks to them as their LORD. You may feel as if this is preaching to the choir, but I never met a choir that sung solo.

  25. I can present with irrefutable arguments that proves that a Genuine Believer CANNOT "lose" their Salvation if they have TRULY been born-again. I can also provide using context, exegesis and hermeneutics to prove without any doubt that the Doctrine of Eternal Security is Biblical. Unfortunately, there are those who just want to lure Christians into a trap by denying this precious Truth. 

    Here is just one out of MANY irrefutable proofs:

    "My sheep [HEAR] my voice, and I [KNOW] them, and they [FOLLOW] me: And I give unto them eternal life; and [THEY SHALL NEVER PERISH], neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand. My Father, which gave them me, is greater than all; and no man is able to pluck them out of my Father's hand." (John 10:27-29)

    Jesus said that He gives His sheep Eternal Life; but His sheep are the ones who "continually" hear and follow Him; and are known by their Chief Shepherd (Jesus) in the most intimate manner. These are"characteristics" of His sheep, and they will never perish. The words "they shall never perish" (Grk. "kai ou me apolontai eis ton aiona" καὶ οὐ μὴ ἀπόλωνται εἰς τὸν αἰῶνα; i.e., "they shall never perish, no not ever") in the Greek grammar is referred to as an emphatic double negative (similar to Verily, Verily) or (e.g., "No, not, ever"). The Greek verbs "hear" (Grk. "akouousin" ἀκούουσιν; i.e., "to obediently listen to the voice of the Chief Shepherd"), "know" (Grk. "ginosko" γινώσκω; i.e., "a deep and intimate understanding of") and "follow" (Grk. "akolouthousin" ἀκολουθοῦσίν; i.e., "to FOLLOW one who LEADS") are all in the present tense, active voice, and the mood is in the indicative (cf. Jn. 8:12). This all suggests that the characteristic's of Jesus sheep will "continue" to "hear, know His voice, and follow" Him.

    Some have argued that "as" one of Jesus' sheep, one could ("on their own free will") voluntarily remove or jump out of Jesus' hand -- and therefore "forfeit" their Salvation. The problem with that argument is that the passage says "NO MAN" shall pluck them out of my Hand; this would also include the "sheep" in the hands of BOTH the Father and the Son. The teaching that one of Jesus' sheep can voluntarily jump out of His hand would not work for several reason -- even using the "free will" argument. The reasons are:

    • Jesus said that His (possessive pronoun) sheep will not listen to the "voice of strangers" or false shepherds; but will "flee" from them. (John 10:5)
    • Jesus said that even if one of His sheep wanders off voluntarily, He will leave the 99 in His fold to seek out that sheep that wandered astray [free will and voluntarily] (Lk. 15:1-6)
    • Jesus said that He is the TRUE shepherd and not a hireling; for hirelings abandon their sheep when there's danger approaching (John 10:12 -- i.e., "wolves").
    • Jesus is the GOOD SHEPHERD, so He will keep His sheep safe at all times. If Jesus allows His sheep to wander off and does nothing about it; how then is He the Good Shepherd?
    • One might argue that the sheep that have wandered astray in Luke 15:1-6 refers to the unsaved, and not those who already belong to Christ. Romans 5:8-9 states: "But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, [WHILE WE WERE YET SINNERS], Christ died for us. [MUCH MORE THEN, BEING NOW JUSTIFIED BY HIS BLOOD], we shall be saved from wrath through him."
    • The subject (i.e., "Jesus' sheep" or "them") in that passage uses the reflexive pronoun; meaning that the "subject" (i.e., "Jesus' sheep or him/herself") in the hands of both the Father and the Son will have nothing to do with him/herself being plucked out. A great place to start would be an examination of the fruit of the Spirit. If you TRULY belong to Christ, then a spiritual inventory check would be the first place to start (cf. 2 Cor. 13:5). Do these Christlike characteristics abide in you?
    • Love
    • Joy
    • Peace
    • Self-control
    • Kindness
    • Goodness
    • Gentleness
    • Faithfulness
    • Patience

    If you are in complete opposition of these Spiritual fruits, then that is a "red flag" that you may not be saved, or were never saved to begin with. When we are born-again, we are "new" creatures in Christ, and sin will have less dominion overs us during our life (cf. Matt. 3:8; Rom. 12:2-3; 2 Cor. 5:17; Heb. 6:1; 1 Jn. 3:9; 5:4; et al.). As we progress spiritually, we will have a greater hatred towards sin, and keep the commandments because we want to please God.

     

    God Bless!
