MONDAY, APRIL 30,
There's a whole
webpage on this site devoted to debunking
legalism : www.christconnection.net/id4.html
Every time I hear
from some legalistic fool who wants to impose the law,
Sabbath keeping, or the 10 Commandments on Christians,
they invariably MISQUOTE John 14:15 where Jesus said
"if you love me, keep MY commandments".
Jesus DIDN'T SAY:
you love me, keep the
What commandments was
He referring to?
What are His commandments?
The answer is
found Mark 12:30, 31 (Jesus speaking):
"Love the Lord
your God with all your heart... and love your neighbor
as yourself. There
are no greater commandments than these".
Romans 13:9 is
crystal clear that all 10 commandments, OR ANY OTHER
COMMANDMENT, are summed up in the LOVE commandments.
It goes on to say
is THE FULFILLMENT OF the WHOLE LAW.
Even James admits the
ONLY commandment we're under is to love our neighbor (James
Even James ADMITS that if we kept ALL the
commandments, ALL OUR LIVES, and break JUST
entire LAW comes crashing down on our heads, and we
become GUILTY OF breaking THE WHOLE LAW (James
As for those who claim that we are to
keep the 10 Commandments, not
for Salvation, but to "please God",
the above verses RENDER THAT THEORY NULL AND VOID.
The only thing that "pleases God" in the New
Testament is FAITH (trust) which works by Love (Hebrews
11:6; Galatians 5:6).
The love commandments are the
Christians are under.
The other ludicrous
argument is that THE REASON most Christians DO NOT
observe Saturday is because Roman Emperor Constantine
passed a law forbidding observance of the Sabbath.

4th century A.D., the
Bible makes it clear that Christians are to view all

Sabbath of REST, the One we TRUST completely and REST
TRUSTING IN OUR OWN WORKS, BUT ON HIS FINISHED WORK.
If you REALLY WANT
TO keep the Sabbath, you need to TRUST JESUS, AND JESUS
ALONE, with all your heart.

means devotion or steadfast commitment to a person, country,
group or cause, REGARDLESS
what that person, country or group may be experiencing
- good or bad.
Loyalty is A
anyone you would even consider as
a friend, let alone as spouse.
We have some
examples of this RARE virtue in God's Word:
Abraham was loyal to God, and
God was and IS (praise His Name) ETERNALLY loyal to
Abraham and to Abraham's Seed (us) (Galatians
Joseph -- a picture of Jesus if there
ever was one -- remained loyal to his brethren EVEN
DISOWNED him, BETRAYED him, ruined
his young life, and SOLD HIM into slavery (Genesis
Ruth was loyal to Naomi, even after
her husband's death, which forever put her in King
David's, hence in Jesus', genealogy (Ruth 1:16).
Jonathan was loyal to David, Elisha to Elijah, and
John the Baptist to Jesus (1 Samuel 20:17; 2 Kings 2:1,
4, 6; John 3:30).
The apostle John
remained loyal to His Lord, even when the rest of the
disciples fled, and
even stood before the cross, being the only eyewitness
among them to His Crucifixion (John 19:25,26).
Likewise, we have examples of DISLOYALTY in the Bible,
the two most egregious ones being Lucifer's betrayal
which led to his rebellion AGAINST God which forever
turned him into hasatan,
the ENEMY, and Judas Iscariot's betrayal of Jesus.
Loyalty is glaringly
LACKING in modern society, including in Christian
fact, some of the most blatantly DISLOYAL people I've
known are self-professed "Christians":
starts a congregation, makes all kinds of personal
sacrifices, devotes a large portion of his or her life
to serving the brethren, seeking God, ministering to
their needs, teaching them the word, offering counsel
and encouragement. The congregation thrives and,
suddenly, because the pastor isn't always perfect (and WHO,
besides Jesus, EVER IS?) or
because we "disagree" with him or her on some SILLY
ISSUE that could be resolved through honest dialogue,
and seeking the Lord earnestly (without bias) IN
SPIRIT, the pastor finds out that SOME OF THE PEOPLE
HE'S HELPED THE MOST have been stirring up members of
his own congregation - the congregation he built from
scratch -- AGAINST HIM.
Instead of OPENLY
discussing the issue, they've
been talking behind his back, gossiping,
making all sorts of mostly unfounded accusations, until
the situation becomes unbearable for all involved.
Next thing you know, those "other" members have
turned into a SPLINTER GROUP that has divided the
which inevitably ends up as a sad statistic in the
annals of ministerial casualties.
We make a LIFETIME commitment to
someone through marriage, then after the initial thrill
wears off, when things don't go as well as we had
planned, or when someone we consider more PHYSICALLY
ATTRACTIVE crosses our path, we promptly cheat and/or
file for divorce.
Much to our shame, the divorce
rate is ACTUALLY HIGHER among self-professed
"Christians" than among unbelievers.

Before I get
500 letters from insecure readers:
ARE biblical grounds for divorce, but those are rather
EXTREME. Yes, it takes TWO people to keep a marriage
going: if one spouse is UNWILLING, there's not much the
other spouse can do. Yes, Jesus will forgive those who
have divorced for WHATEVER reason, and NO, NO ONE will
go to hell because they divorced their spouse or
because they cheated on him or her.
we're discussing LOYALTY.
We often experience
disloyalty within our own families: You were there for
cousin Bob, aunt Cinthia, and brother Ed in THEIR TIME
OF NEED, but
when YOUR TIME OF NEED comes along,
they TURN THEIR BACKS.
That is being
ungrateful and UTTERLY DISLOYAL.
We experience it with our "friends" who loved to
hang around us when things were going well and we were
Aaaaah, but when you lost your job,
your savings, your home, your business, when finances
dried up and you could no longer afford the fancy
restaurants, the luxury cars, the yachts, or the
glamorous lifestyle, they disappeared faster than
Buffalo wings at a Super Bowl party.
NEVER your friends to begin with.
I often see
disloyalty in my own ministry. And what I find most
disturbing is that it comes from those who SHOULD BE
most grateful and loyal:
From the ones I spent
hours answering every silly question imaginable, until
all their doubts and fears were laid to rest.
From the ones who asked for, and received, TONS of
materials from us, FREE OF CHARGE.
From those I
stayed up with ‘til the wee hours of the morning
because of some heart-wrenching situation they were
experiencing, or because they were seeking deliverance
from addiction, or because they were wrestling with
their own salvation.

FRIDAY, APRIL 27,
As you might
imagine, we received considerable feedback from our
recent message, "If Jesus called you a DOG", most of it
But what struck me as comical were the
comments (forwarded to us by one of our readers) made
in one of the moronic "prophecy forums" that abound on
It said, among other things
"The entire article is "over the
top". In fact it is error. And so is the majority of
the site... we had previously decided among the
admin/mod team NOT TO ALLOW that link on this site. THE
SITE (meaning OURS) IS SO FULL OF ERROR... that THERE
IS NO REDEEMING VALUE IN POINTING PEOPLE TO IT".
Ah, yes, I've seen some of the links and "error
free" comments WHICH ARE
DEEMED to have "REDEEMING
VALUE" AND ARE
such self-righteous forum:
like the myth of
Islamic world domination, the myth of the so-called
Mahdi, President Obama or the Pope being the
Antichrist, all kinds of loony conspiracy theories,
divination based on the dream of some religious nerd,
the Rapture or Salvation being CONTINGENT ON "proper
religious behavior" (as opposed to Grace ALONE) thus
rendering Jesus' Blood INSUFFICIENT, some mysterious
non-existent comet colliding with the earth and
triggering the Apocalypse - ALL
DOWNRIGHT UNBIBLICAL since NONE OF IT is FOUND IN
and (my personal favorite) REPEATEDLY CONTRADICTING

Rapture will occur based
on the IDIOTIC and unbiblical calculations of one or
more of its "sage" members (Matthew

Then there were the comments made by the forum's
"I disagree that Jesus was rude. He
simply stated what current Jewish teaching was
regarding Gentiles"... Really?
The moderator shows GROSS intellectual
DISHONESTY, GROSS IGNORANCE, or
Even if it was "current Jewish teaching regarding
Gentiles", IT WAS STILL RUDE, in fact, IT
WAS AN INSULT.
Anyone EVEN REMOTELY familiar with Middle Eastern
culture KNOWS that in Israel, as well as all over the
Middle East, it
was an INSULT to call someone "dog" in the first
century A.D., as it still is TO THIS VERY DAY.
So, to claim that "it wasn't rude" based on it
being "current Jewish teaching" TOTALLY LACKS VALIDITY:
That's like saying that it's NOT AN INSULT for Muslims
to calls Jews "apes" or "pigs" today simply because it
reflects "current Islamic teaching".
"moderator" goes on to say: "Jesus was testing the
woman, not being rude to her".
The "moderator" IS
LYING : NOWHERE does
Scripture say Jesus was "testing the woman".
And I flat-out DARE this LIAR to produce ONE VERSE of
Scripture that says Jesus was "testing her".
goes on to say: "Her response-the response He knew she
would give-was provoked for the purpose of
demonstrating her faith and showing that faith is the
way to God".
This "moderator" CONTRADICTS
If Jesus KNEW what her response would be - as
the idiot himself ADMITS --
WOULD HE NEED TO "TEST HER"?
The "moderator" further states: "To suggest
that Jesus was rude and thus implicitly saying that the
woman responded to His rudeness by essentially putting
Him in His place with her answer is false. It totally
misses the point of Scripture there".
did our message say - or even IMPLY -- that the woman
in question was "responding to Jesus' rudeness", let
alone "putting Him in His place".

that the Greek word aschemoneo,
used in 1 Corinthians 13:5 is frequently rendered in

HOW HE CAN OR CANNOT ACT?

SO FULL OF HIMSELF (or just "full of it") that he
thinks Jesus needs his puny mind's "approval", when

responsible for spawning a generation of ineffective
religious weaklings who are content to merely "preach

knowledge of Christ, have zero influence on society and
whom THE WORLD DOESN'T EVEN RESPECT.
In fact, the VERY APOSTLE PAUL who penned those
words about being "gentle" is ON RECORD as saying:
"Oh FOOLISH Galatians,
who has bewitched you"...? (Galatians 3:1).
(Galatians 1:8), and

(Divine Love, God) is "a consuming fire" or that "it's
a FEARFUL thing to fall into the hands of the Living
God" (Hebrews 10:31; 12:29).
So, in order to
accept what this religious hypocrite CLAIMS, we would
have to believe that:
1) Paul was a lying
hypocrite, who DIDN'T practice what he preached and
often CONTRADICTED himself.
2) That the Bible
(God) is A LIAR, who repeatedly CONTRADICTS HIMSELF
(perish THE VERY THOUGHT).
3) That this idiot is
right and BOTH 1 and 2 above are true.
Actually, it's THE VERY OPPOSITE: this
arrogant idiot is wrong. He is the LYING, BIASED FOOL,
brainwashed by MAN-INVENTED RELIGION, who KNOWS NOTHING

People who come to
faith in Jesus Christ often need guidance as they take
the first steps in their new found faith.

Christianity, and which Christians they should seek

"the FUN-damentals", you'd
be surprised HOW MANY long-time Christians ARE NOT
familiar with them.
So, in today's
"Word", I thought it would be nice to take A VERY
CONCISE "Refresher Course" on what constitutes THE
BASIS OF OUR Christian faith:
1. The Bible is
inerrant Word of God and
is the final
authority ON EVERYTHING.

manifested in human form].

in your heart = salvation. There's
no salvation in any other person, or by any other means (Acts
4:12). Salvation is faith (TRUST) in Jesus ALONE, not
faith in Jesus "PLUS" something else.
7. Jesus will,
someday, RETURN TO EARTH to set up His everlasting
Kingdom right here.
I would encourage
every new believer to seek SPIRITUAL fellowship with
those who share these 7 basic [fundamental] beliefs.

"antichrist", all found in John's epistles:
According to 1 John 4:3 and 2 John 1:7, anyone
who denies that Jesus came in the flesh is
The Gnostics of old were
"antichrists" who spiritualized EVERYTHING and taught
that Jesus is merely A SPIRIT and that He died and rose

antichrists like ugly, bony Elaine Pagels, or that old,
EVEN UGLIER buzzard Dominic Crossan -- either one would
make a great Halloween mask, and I don't mean just
physically -- that CONTRADICT SCRIPTURE AND REALITY by
claiming Jesus only rose "spiritually".
According to 1 John 2:22, ANYONE
WHO DENIES that Jesus is the Christ IS
Sadly, most Jews today -- except for
Messianic ones -- are antichrist because they deny He
is the Messiah or Christ.
3. According to 1 John
4:3 there's the
SPIRIT OF antichrist which
was already in the world back in the first century A.D.
and, if you really want to trace it back to its origin,
since the Garden of Eden.
4. There is, however, A
PERSON, AN INDIVIDUAL Antichrist, which
was predicted in Genesis 3:15, who is the Seed
and will face off AGAINST Jesus at Armageddon.
This IS CLEARLY EXPRESSED in 1 John 2:18:
"Little children, IT IS THE LAST TIME: and as you
have heard that THE ANTICHRIST shall come, even
now are there MANY antichrists; by which we know that
IT IS THE LAST TIME".
The Greek unmistakably
renders it as ho

SPECIFIC, SINGULAR Antichrist,
while contrasting him with the antichristoi
"many" antichrists who were already around.
This passage clearly indicates that although there have
been -- and ARE-- many "antichrists", THERE
IS ONE IN PARTICULAR WHO WILL COME as Jesus' archenemy,
AT THE TIME OF THE END or at
"THE LAST TIME".
And THAT PARTICULAR Antichrist is the one that
in popular culture today is referred to simply by that
When I say that Alexander the Great is
the Antichrist who will rise from the dead during the
tribulation and confront Jesus at Armageddon, EVERYONE
with a speck of common sense KNOWS WHO and WHAT I'm
referring to. I
see no point in splitting theological hairs or writing
a 300-page dissertation on the term "antichrist".
He is the same one who will oppose Jesus, blaspheme
His Name and, ultimately, try
in vain to PREVENT HIS Second Coming and
subsequent establishment of God's Kingdom on earth
It DOESN'T get much

the Books of Daniel and Revelation.

He is described as the "son of perdition" and "man
of sin" in 2 Thessalonians 2:3.
He is called
that "Wicked One" or that "lawless One" in 2
The ONLY REASON he's called
"the beast" throughout Revelation is because he's
described as A BEAST (either a leopard or a goat) in
the Book of Daniel, and Revelation is the UNSEALING of
Daniel (Daniel 7:6; 8; 8:5,8; Revelation chapters 5-7).

mental antichrist THAT SATAN PLANTED IN man's natural

MONDAY, APRIL 9,
As I checked the
TV listings over Resurrection Weekend, found out that
the so-called "Christian" channels mostly had the same
old, boring fare, while the secular channels had some
interesting-sounding programs that, for the most part,
turned out to be one attempt after another to discredit
and "explain away" the Christian faith.
EVERY IMAGINABLE THEORY -- and some rather hard to
imagine -- as to how Christianity was based on ancient
How Constantine's vision about
Jesus wasn't real, with some Academy award winning
producer claiming he had "proof". How can you "prove"
whether someone else had a vision or not? It was, after
all, THEIR vision, NOT YOURS.
There's even a
stupid book out whose author, having previously
denounced the Shroud of Turin as a hoax, now claims the
Shroud IS REAL, after all, and that it WAS the burial
cloth in which Jesus' body was wrapped.
according to said author, it was THE SHROUD that the
women saw when they came to the tomb. It was the Image
on the Shroud that made them believe He had resurrected
And, of course, it was FOR THIS
PIECE OF CLOTH WITH AN IMAGE THAT CAN HARDLY BE SEEN
WITH THE NAKED EYE, and NOT
FOR THE REAL JESUS,
that thousands of martyrs gave their lives.
THANK God that the Holy Spirit led me to focus Sunday's
message on the EMPTY TOMB!
What it all boils
down to is this:
People can INVENT all the false
theories they want to discredit Christianity, but after
ALL IS SAID AND DONE, after ALL their dubious
scholarship can concoct, after they blow all the smoke
they want by trying to impress you with their alleged
archeological or mythological "knowledge", we're left
with ONE inexorable fact:
THE EMPTY TOMB.

these morons claim, THE

it is my privilege to bring you this brief message:
"Beloved, let us love one another: for love is of
God; and everyone that loves is born of God, and knows
God" (1 John 4:7).
The love spoken of in the
Bible, particularly in the New Testament, is
a love that transcends human emotion.
It's not a feeling. It's a STATE OF BEING.
is Eternal Being (I AM). Love is a SPIRITUAL force.
It's the force that created and SUSTAINS the universe.
It's the energy that holds us together and keeps us
Love is Eternal Life. Love is Eternal
Love is immortal. Love
is Almighty. Love IS God.
Since it's NOT human emotion, this SPECIAL
be conjured up. Nor
can it be, or should it ever be, measured OR JUDGED by
human logic or human standards.
There's ONLY ONE
WAY to get Him and it's by INVITING HIM (the
Personification of Divine Love, Jesus Christ) into our
hearts and RECEIVING Him as Lord, Savior and God.
When we do, we become PARTAKERS OF God's Divine
Nature, which is Supernatural Love.
When we do,
His Holy Spirit joins our Spirits and PUTS THIS
SUPERNATURAL LOVE in our hearts.
it's up to each of us to eagerly seek that Divine Love
(Jesus) within our hearts, allowing Him to draw us
deeper and deeper into Himself.
Or, we can
simply ignore Him and pretend He's NOT EVEN THERE.
We can be saved and still live a LOW life, where we
think, speak and act like the world, still alienated
from God who is that Divine Love BURIED somewhere
inside our hearts.
Or, we can live the HIGH
life, where we seek to be ever more conscious of (awake
to) this Divine Love, who is God Himself, and ALLOW Him
(Divine Love) to LIVE and MANIFEST (express Himself) in
our words, actions and deeds.
Love is a GRADUAL process this side of heaven.
It involves TOTAL SURRENDER. Total surrender means we
SURRENDER our own wills and desires and WAIT on God to
manifest His Perfect Will, His Divine, Supernatural
Love, through us.
When we SURRENDER TO Divine
Love, we are Manifestations of God, or at the very
least, Manifestations of FACETS of His Great,
We are called and predestined
to become PERFECTED IN His Love.
That's what the
Bible refers to as the High calling of God in Christ
That's what ALL OF US are DESTINED TO
open your Bibles or New Testaments to 1 Corinthians
"For I have received of the Lord that
which also I delivered to you, That the Lord Jesus the
same night in which he was betrayed took bread: And
when he had given thanks, he broke it, and said, Take,
eat: this is my body, which is broken for you: this do
in remembrance of me".
Let us, in Divine
Love, in Jesus Himself, without fear, PARTAKE OF OUR
Lord's Body (the bread before you).
25 "After the same manner also he took the cup,
when he had supped, saying, This cup is the New
Testament in my Blood: this do you, as often as you
drink it, in remembrance of me.
26 For as often
as you eat this bread, and drink this cup, you do show
the Lord's death till He come".
Let us drink the
wine, which in the spirit realm is the precious Blood
which the Lamb of God shed for our sins.
Glory to God: Praise you, Lord Jesus. Thank you,
Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
Thank you, Jesus,
for your Body and Blood.
Thank you for imparting
your perfect Righteousness to us.
Thank you for
making us partakers of your very own Divine Nature.
Thank you for your FAITHFULNESS.
Faithful and True, Wonderful Lord.
We join the
heavenly hosts, and all free will beings in the
heavenly realms, in praising you and saying:

And now we
conclude this service with the reading of the prophetic
Word from the King James 2000 Bible:
"And it shall come to pass afterward,
that I WILL POUR OUT MY SPIRIT UPON ALL FLESH; and your
sons and your daughters shall prophesy, your old men
shall dream dreams, your young men shall see visions:
29 And also upon the servants and upon the
handmaids in those days will I pour out my spirit.
30 And I WILL SHOW WONDERS IN THE HEAVENS and in
the earth, blood, and fire, and pillars of smoke.
31 THE SUN SHALL BE TURNED INTO DARKNESS, AND THE
MOON INTO BLOOD, BEFORE the great and the terrible day
of the LORD comes.
32 And it shall come to pass,
that WHOSOEVER SHALL CALL ON THE NAME OF THE LORD SHALL
BE DELIVERED: for in mount Zion and in Jerusalem shall
be deliverance, as the LORD has said, and in the
remnant whom the LORD shall call".
The Great Multitude Out of the Great
"After this I beheld, and, lo, A
GREAT MULTITUDE, WHICH NO MAN COULD NUMBER, OF ALL
NATIONS, AND TRIBES, AND PEOPLE, AND TONGUES, stood
before the throne, and before the Lamb, clothed with
white robes, and palms in their hands;
cried with a loud voice, saying, Salvation (belongs) to
our God who sits upon the throne, and unto the Lamb.
11 And all the angels stood round about the throne,
and about the elders and the four living creatures, and
fell before the throne on their faces, and worshiped
12 Saying, Amen: Blessing, and glory, and
wisdom, and thanksgiving, and honor, and power, and
might, be unto our God forever and ever. Amen.
13 And one of the elders answered, saying unto me, Who
are these who are arrayed in white robes? and where did
they come from?
14 And I said unto him, Sir, you
know. And he said to me, These are they WHO CAME OUT OF
THE GREAT TRIBULATION, and have washed their robes, and
MADE THEM WHITE IN THE BLOOD OF THE LAMB".
Therefore are they before the throne of God, and serve
him day and night in his temple: AND HE THAT SITS ON
THE THRONE SHALL DWELL AMONG THEM.
16 They shall
hunger no more, neither thirst any more; neither shall
the sun strike them, nor any heat.
17 For the
Lamb who is in the midst of the throne shall feed them,
and shall lead them unto living fountains of waters:
and God SHALL WIPE AWAY ALL TEARS FROM THEIR EYES".
"Then the sovereignty, power
and greatness of the kingdoms under the whole heaven
will be handed over to the saints, the people of the
Most High. HIS KINGDOM WILL BE AN EVERLASTING KINGDOM,
AND ALL RULERS WILL WORSHIP AND OBEY HIM.'
Daniel 7:13, 14:
"I saw in the night visions,
and, behold, one like the Son of man came with the
clouds of heaven, and came to the Ancient of days, and
they brought him near before him.
14 And there
was given him dominion, and glory, and a kingdom, that
all people, nations, and languages, should serve him:

NOT PASS AWAY, AND HIS KINGDOM THAT WHICH SHALL NOT BE

cup, she was accepting his proposal.
The bride would veil her face and wait for the
groom to return and take her to that place he'd
prepared. Then the marriage would be consummated.
This is EXACTLY what took place during the Last
Supper. Jesus promised to go prepare a place for us

BIGGEST dowry IN HISTORY --
NO LESS than His precious Blood -- His

AGAINST this doctrine, which was taught by Jesus
Yes, you HEARD ME: THIS DOCTRINE was
TAUGHT BY Jesus Himself.
Please READ this whole
message BEFORE you send your angry emails.
if you do send an angry email, you better have SOLID
Bible teaching behind it and SOLID Church history
behind it, because by God's Grace I'm extremely
well-versed in both of these.
DISCIPLES had trouble with this doctrine back in 32-33
A.D. And, because
of it, many forsook Him (John
By forsaking Him, they PROVED they
WEREN'T FOR REAL.
In the first to 4th century
were often accused by
pagan, idol worshipping Romans of
"cannibalism" because they HEARD that Christians
"partook of the FLESH and BLOOD" of Jesus at Communion

human flesh and LITERAL human blood.
When we denounce of criticize this Bible doctrine,
we're talking and acting LIKE FREAKIN' PAGANS.
have never heard any believer say that the bread and
wine BECOME the literal Body and Blood of Jesus in
the PHYSICAL realm (although
they MOST CERTAINLY DO IN
THE SPIRIT REALM).
Or that Jesus is dying "over and over again".
The Scriptures are CLEAR that "By ONE Sacrifice He
has PERFECTED FOREVER those
who are sanctified" (Hebrews 10:14). (Praise you,
Meanwhile, I have heard many Christians
say "we don't believe in transubstantiation" and that
Jesus ONLY intended
the sacrament of Holy Communion to be done "in
remembrance of" His all-sufficient Sacrifice.
They then, very
conveniently, SWEEP John 6:51-58 (quoted above) UNDER
THE RUG, and PRETEND it's not even IN the Bible.
This ministry has never swept and, by God's
Grace, will never sweep, ANYTHING found in Scripture
"under the rug".
We face spiritual reality HEAD
ON. I'd rather flat-out tell you that I DON'T KNOW what
some passage of Scripture means, than
PRETEND it's NOT EVEN THERE.
Yes, Jesus wants us to partake of Communion "in
remembrance of Him". That much is true.
NOT the end of the story.
He very pointedly said, and REPEATED several
times -- as quoted above from the Evangelical King
James Version of the Bible -- THAT WE

Jesus referring to?
While His PHYSICAL Body was
crucified and ROSE FROM THE DEAD, and His PHYSICAL
Blood poured out for our sins, His
Body and Blood TRANSCEND this material, 3D world, and
reach into the ETERNAL REALM OF THE SPIRIT.
do you think He obtained ETERNAL redemption
for us with His One Sacrifice?
When Jesus broke the bread at the Last Supper (Erev
Passover) back in 33 A.D. and gave the cup, THE BREAD DIDN'T TURN
INTO HIS PHYSICAL FLESH NOR THE WINE INTO HIS PHYSICAL
DID IN THE SPIRITUAL DIMENSION.
Likewise they DON'T become His flesh or His Blood
IN THE MATERIAL REALM when Catholic Mass is celebrated,
or when Evangelicals partake of the Lord's Supper.
If you take the Communion wafer, bread, or wine to
a lab, I guarantee they'll still be flour and wine IN
THE NATURAL realm.
My question to you is "do
you think Jesus is ONLY a PHYSICAL Being?
'Cause if He were ONLY

How many times have you heard me teach that
JESUS IS GOD?
God is, first and foremost, SPIRIT (John
That's why He
MUST BE worshipped in Spirit. That's WHY He MUST BE EATEN IN
That's why His most precious Body and Blood aren't
merely PHYSICAL but SPIRITUAL as well.
The "eating of His flesh and drinking of His
Blood" that Jesus was talking about was
meant to take place SPIRITUALLY,
the bread and wine in the PHYSICAL realm being merely AN
OUTWARD REPRESENTATION (remembrance) of
WHAT TAKES/TOOK PLACE IN THE SPIRIT REALM WHEN WE
OUR LORD'S FLESH AND BLOOD by RECEIVING HIM into OUR
our only Lord, Savior and God.
When we RECEIVE
Jesus INTO US,
we SPIRITUALLY drink
His Blood and partake (EAT) of His ETERNAL Spirit
Hence, we BECOME "members
of His Body, of His flesh and of His bones" (Ephesians
His Life (Blood) ENTERS INTO US and becomes
OUR Eternal Life.
Hence, we BECOME His
Spiritual (Mystical) Body (Ephesians
Jesus made this
clear in that very chapter (John
6:63) by saying: "It
is THE SPIRIT THAT GIVES LIFE;
the flesh profits nothing: THE
WORDS THAT I SPEAK UNTO YOU (about
eating His Flesh and drinking His Blood), THEY
AND THEY ARE LIFE".
When we, in
spirit, EAT the precious Lamb of God and drink His Holy
Blood, we become His VERY spiritual DNA.
Thus, God sees us IN
as Righteous as Jesus Himself (2 Corinthians 5:21).
The thief on the cross next to Jesus never had the
chance to participate in Holy Communion, he never ate
the PHYSICAL bread or drank the PHYSICAL wine, yet by
repenting at the last minute and
RECEIVING Jesus into his heart HE IN THE SPIRIT REALM
DRANK OUR LORD'S BLOOD AND ATE,
our Lord's Eternal Spirit Substance (flesh)
which, as Jesus Himself said, IS
INDEED "REAL FOOD AND REAL DRINK".
Communion service is merely an OUTWARD representation,
of what has taken place INWARDLY in our hearts, namely
THAT by INVITING JESUS TO ENTER OUR HEARTS, WE HAVE
TRADED our own, corrupt, fallen, sinful nature for
God's Own, Holy, Perfect, Sinless, Incorruptible and
Just like Adam passed his sinful nature to us through
his contaminated blood, Jesus
passed His own PERFECT, Divine Nature to us through
His Holiest Blood.
Just like Adam passed the tendency to sin to us
through his CORRUPT human flesh (DNA), Jesus
passed His Righteousness, INCORRUPTION AND IMMORTALITY
to us through His SINLESS flesh.
Even the Scriptures tell us that Jesus' Blood
IS ALIVE and that, in
the SPIRITUAL DIMENSION, IT SPEAKS better
things than that of Abel (Hebrews 12:24).
sacrament is done in
remembrance of Jesus' Eternal Sacrifice, and
WHAT IT PROCURED FOR ALL THOSE WHO RECEIVE HIM who,
by faith, IN SPIRIT, have EATEN His FLESH and DRUNK His
Blood which are not just physical but REAL, ETERNAL
why He/we/they LIVE FOREVER.
The bottom line is, as Jesus Himself stated,
we (in spirit) EAT HIS FLESH AND DRINK HIS BLOOD, by
receiving Jesus into our hearts not
just as a physical human but AS
GOD HIMSELF WHO IS SPIRIT,
we have NO LIFE and are NOT saved.
Jesus also said "unless you believe that I AM (God),
you will die in your sins." (John 8:24).
would think that, by now, the Church WOULD HAVE LEARNED
SOMETHING and gained some DISCERNMENT.
up, religious bigots; you've
had 2,000 YEARS to
mull this over, and YOU STILL DON'T GET IT.
you DON'T LIKE the term "transubstantiation", then
CALL IT SOMETHING ELSE.
When we take Holy Communion, we are not to
focus PRIMARILY on the MATERIAL BREAD and MATERIAL WINE
BEFORE US, BUT
REAL FLESH AND BLOOD of Jesus AND His Very Self, His
which we're partaking of and RECEIVING INTO our spirits.
Jesus' physical flesh and blood, which were
sacrificed for us in space-time, TRANSCEND
this physical dimension and are ETERNAL, INCORRUPTIBLE
SUNDAY, APRIL 1,
One of the things
that shocked me many years ago, when I was called into
the ministry - and that still bothers me today - is the
competitive attitude that some Christians have toward
their fellow believers and ministers of the Gospel.
And I don't mean "healthy competition", either.
I'm talking about a vicious, vindictive desire to
"find fault" and to see their brothers FAIL.
talking about the stubborn, CARNAL "I'm right and
you're wrong" mindset that wants "us" to be right and
"them" to be wrong, EVEN WHEN our teaching CONTRADICTS
When we CONTRADICT the
Scriptures, we CONTRADICT God.
And, for the
record, the FIRST to ever CONTRADICT God was Satan
Needless to say such
competitive spirit DOES NOT COME FROM God.
comes from Satan, the deceiver, who loves nothing more
than to divide the Body of Christ.
It's also the
result of spiritual and emotional IMMATURITY and
We find a born-again
brother or sister with a REVELATION we've never heard
before, and we immediately ATTACK him or her without
even taking the time to examine their biblical basis,
if any, OR EVEN WHETHER SUCH DOCTRINE MAY BE CORRECT.
Spiritual immaturity causes us to feel
We FEAR that "they" may be right
and WE may be wrong.
We FEAR that "they" may
have found something in the Bible to topple one of our
religious system's SACRED COWS.
We FEAR "they"
may expose it as UNBIBLICAL.
the other end of the spectrum, which is INTELLECTUAL
A born-again Messianic attacked my teaching that
there's NO SUCH THING as a "7-year peace treaty" in the
I patiently and lovingly explained why
this is true, gave the appropriate Scriptures,
explained the historic context, showed him such
teaching is NOT FOUND ANYWHERE IN Scripture, went back
and forth with this brother about 8 rounds of emails,
answered ALL HIS QUESTIONS to his full satisfaction,
and, FINALLY, he
ADMITTED that it's sheer fabrication and that no such
thing is found in God's Word.
I still have his email archived.
TWO MONTHS LATER I received one of his newsletters and
found out, much to my dismay that - despite his
outright admission that such teaching was wrong and
unscriptural -- HE WAS STILL TEACHING A
7-YEAR PEACE TREATY.
I know how difficult it is,
in the natural, to part with religious tradition, not
to mention religious brainwashing.
I prayed for
him, felt sorry for him, and asked the Lord to have
mercy on him.
He, however, was being BOTH
spiritually and intellectually DISHONEST.
anyone misunderstand, what I'm saying DOES NOT apply to
heretics. Heretics are those who DENY one or more of
the BASIC (foundational) tenets of the Christian
Heretics ARE NOT SAVED, and we have
EVERY RIGHT TO ATTACK THEIR FALSE DOCTRINE WHICH IS
LEADING THOUSANDS, IF NOT MILLIONS, TO HELL.
ONE is more ruthless with heretics than this preacher.
They are NOT our brothers and sisters. They are wolves
in sheep's clothing leading countless misinformed sheep
to the slaughter.
I don't mince words with them:
I go "for the jugular", DESTROY THEIR FALSE DOCTRINE,
and make NO BONES ABOUT IT.
God's Word makes it
crystal clear that the Church is THE BODY OF Christ. As
a Body, we are made up of MANY DIFFERENT parts. And ALL
THE PARTS are NECESSARY.
It's also crystal clear
about the fact that NONE OF US has 100% of the Truth,
though some have A LOT more truth than others.
We all know IN PART and prophesy IN PART.
Anything that's done IN PART is, by definition,
INCOMPLETE and, therefore, IMPERFECT.
word for "imperfect" is FLAWED.
Can we ALL AGREE
on at least ONE THING, that
NONE OF US is infallible?
That NONE OF US is
correct 100% of the time?
And that Jesus is
Only when we KNOW as we are KNOWN will that
which is IN PART be done away with and give way to His
But 99% of us aren't there... yet.
Brothers and sisters, please STOP trying to make
Christ's Body into ONLY an eye, or ONLY a hand, or ONLY
STOP seeing OTHER
PARTS of His Body as "your enemies".
attacking them or accusing them of "NOT being
Christian" just because they don't see eye to eye with
you on some NON-FOUNDATIONAL doctrine.
OTHER PARTS are beneficial and NECESSARY.
OTHER PARTS BELONG IN THE SAME BODY.
those OTHER PARTS, you're not A BODY but a dismembered
It's O.K. for the time being (until Jesus
renews our minds with His Appearing) to disagree with
other parts on NON-FOUNDATIONAL doctrines.
please don't view those parts AS NOT BELONGING in the
In the natural, if you didn't like
your nose, or your legs, you wouldn't cut them off.
Yet that's what we do to Christ's spiritual Body.
You can't harm
another member of Christ's Body without harming
yourself spiritually in the process.
The ONLY thing we accomplish with such puerile,
counterproductive attitude is SELF-MUTILATION.
