WHY JESUS CAN'T BE GOD
According to a
Jehovah's Witness I recently interacted with, Jesus "CAN'T
BE" God because Colossians 1:15 says :
"He is the Image of
the invisible God, THE FIRSTBORN of all creation".
Isn't God ETERNAL ? If
so, HOW could God BE BORN ?
And doesn't this verse
show that Jesus was PART OF "God's creation", hence making
it IMPOSSIBLE for Him to be God ?
That SAME VERSE, as
you can see above, STARTS OFF
by saying that Jesus IS THE IMAGE OF the INVISIBLE God.
The VERY NEXT verse,
Colossians 1:16-17, CLEARLY SAYS IN REGARDS TO JESUS:
HIM ALL THINGS WERE CREATED: THINGS IN HEAVEN AND ON EARTH,
VISIBLE AND INVISIBLE, whether thrones or powers or
rulers or authorities; ALL
THINGS WERE CREATED BY HIM AND FOR HIM (INCLUDING HIS
PHYSICAL BODY).He is before all things, and in Him all
things hold together".
Of course, Jehovah's
Witnesses NEVER QUOTE these portions of that passage,
because they don't fit their
agenda. They only quote the small PART that APPEARS TO
As Jesus told the
BLIND, RELIGIOUS Sadducees of His day: THEY
ERR "NOT KNOWING the Scriptures OR the POWER OF GOD" (Matthew
The HUMAN PART OF Jesus, His
PHYSICAL BODY, WAS "THE firstborn OF ALL CREATION".
In His infinite
Wisdom God "prepared a body"
for Himself to dwell in (Hebrews 10:5; Psalm 40:6-12).
Haven't you read that the
Lamb was slain BEFORE THE FOUNDATION OF THE WORLD (Revelation
Jesus' Spirit, on the
other hand, has been "from
everlasting to everlasting" (Psalm 90:1-2; John 1:1-3).
God is Spirit, thus, INVISIBLE TO
HUMAN EYES (John 4:24).
That's WHY He became
HUMAN, so HUMANS could see, feel, hear, touch and interact
with THEIR CREATOR GOD (John 14:9).
He HAD TO become human
in order to pay for our sins, fulfill His own Law and
Divine Justice and SAVE US.
That's how Jesus is
both God (Eternal Spirit) and Son of God (as human):
The HUMAN Jesus is Son
of God, but Jesus' Spirit is THE ONE and only Almighty God,
and Creator of the universe.
Timothy 3:16 says, clear as daylight, that "God
was MADE VISIBLE in the flesh".
The Spirit of Jesus is
God, HAS ALWAYS BEEN GOD, AND WILL ALWAYS BE GOD (John
As such, His
Spirit is ETERNAL. It never had a beginning,
nor was ever born.
Really, JW's, YOU
NEED TONS OF HERETICAL "HELP" IN ORDER NOT
TO UNDERSTAND that if Jesus created ALL THINGS, visible
and INVISIBLE, and they ALL were created by Him AND FOR HIM
- then Jesus MUST - absolute
MUST - be God.
From EVERLASTING TO
EVERLASTING He is God (Psalm 90:2).
As if that statement
WASN'T enough TO PROVE His ETERNAL Deity, the VERY NEXT
CHAPTER of Colossians, reiterates:
For in Him dwells ALL
THE FULLNESS OF the Deity PHYSICALLY (bodily)
Last time I checked
"ALL THE FULLNESS" MEANS "ALL the
Fullness", it means THE
TOTALITY of God.
And in Revelation 21:7
Jesus has THIS to say about Himself:
"He who overcomes will
inherit these things, and I
WILL BE HIS GOD and he will be My son".
The TRUE Christian
faith was introduced by Jesus and His apostles 2,000
Jehovah's Witnesses sect was INVENTED, by a sinful, lying
MORTAL, Charles Taze Russell, only
142 years ago.
Given the choice of
BELIEVING JESUS or believing that inveterate liar named
Russell, it's a NO-BRAINER: I
I have a suggestion
for ALL Jehovah's Witnesses (Serena and Venus Williams
Receive Jesus into
your heart as ONLY God and
ONLY Savior and be BORN AGAIN of His ETERNAL Spirit
Don't just read or
hear ABOUT Jesus: KNOW
Him... in your INNERMOST BEING.
He's God and NEVER DOUBT His Eternal Deity again.

WHAT A FOOL WE HAVE IN
Well !!! Who
do you think you are, calling Jesus a fool?
don't call Him that.
According to a recent
Pew Survey on Religion 57% of
"Evangelical Christians" believe people can get to
heaven by believing in OTHER
In other words, 60%
(almost TWO THIRDS) of you THINK people can be saved
That they can be saved
by believing in Allah, Buddha, Krishna, New Age, or just by
being "good people".
And the number is EVEN
HIGHER (80%) among Roman Catholics.
That means that 4
out of 5 Catholics BELIEVE Salvation is achievable WITHOUT
A Barna Study revealed
similar statistics with ONE FOURTH of all alleged
born-agains believing salvation is possible without
Christ and HALF (50%) believing that "Christians and
Muslims worship the same God".
Do they, really?
When did Allah manifest in
When did he die for mankind's
If Allah DIDN'T DIE
ON THE CROSS, HOW CAN HE BE
"THE SAME GOD"?
If He DIDN'T PAY
FOR your sins, HOW THE HELL
CAN he save you?
If he DIDN'T create
the world (John 1:1-3) HOW
CAN he be God?
If Allah DOESN'T
EVEN EXIST how can he
"There is Salvation in
NO ONE ELSE (besides Jesus). There
is NO OTHER NAME... by which we can be saved (Acts
"I AM the Way, the
Truth and the Life. NO
ONE comes to the Father EXCEPT through me"(John
The REASON Jesus can
and DOES save is because He
paid for all sin for all time AND BECAUSE HE LIVES
FOREVER (Revelation 1:18).
HOW DARE YOU call yourself
"Christian" when you believe that an INVENTED,
NONEXISTENT, DEAD god WHO
DIDN'T DO ANYTHING FOR anyone, can
save you, me or anyone else?
If people could be
saved by just being "good", or through ANY religion, or
through ANY invented deity, then
Jesus was THE BIGGEST FOOL WHO EVER LIVED.
WHY would He divest
Himself of His glory, and come to this rotten, sinful
world, WHEN we CAN BE SAVED THROUGH ALLAH or Buddha or
WHY would He, being God, with
ALL the power in the universe, allow Himself to be
mocked, spit, punched to bloody pulp, savagely lashed,
crowned with thorns, then crucified buck naked, agonizing
for hours in the blazing sun, WHEN
ALL THE WHILE YOU COULD HAVE BEEN SAVED just by being a
Have you even read the
Gospels? Can Jesus really be
WHY would He endure THE HELL
that you and I deserve for THREE WHOLE DAYS AND
NIGHTS, where Satan and his
demons unleashed ALL THEIR WICKEDNESS and hatred against
Him (Psalm 22:12-13), when just being a good Hindu
could save you?
Go ahead, I'm all
Well, you don't
understand. God is love... He loves everyone and wants
That much is true.
Jesus loves EVERYONE,
and wants everyone saved. That's
why He endured all the torment that you and I deserved.
Jesus IS Love
(1 John 4:16).
Allah ISN'T love:
Buddha ISN'T love:
Krishna ISN'T love. NO
ONE ELSE besides Jesus is Love.
Jesus is Love.
That's EXACTLY WHY those
WHO REJECT HIM ARE LOST.
REJECT LOVE PERSONIFIED.
If you REJECT LOVE, to
put it bluntly: YOU'RE
If you reject the ONE
true God, the ONLY ONE who
REALLY LOVES YOU UNCONDITIONALLY AND ETERNALLY, IN SPITE OF
your faults and sins, THE ONLY ONE WHO LOVES
YOU ENOUGH TO DIE FOR YOU..., YOU HAVEN'T GOT A PRAYER!
Reject DIVINE LOVE
and ALL you can expect is
Jesus is not a
kidnapper and He's not a rapist.
He WON'T FORCE Heaven,
or Himself, on you.
Jesus gave people the
right to choose THEIR ETERNAL DESTINY.
And He won't violate
He'll LET YOU go to hell, IF
YOU WANT TO -- the very hell He took in your place.
My Jesus is NO FOOL.
He did what He did, He
suffered what you CAN'T EVEN BEGIN to comprehend, because
there was NO OTHER WAY TO SAVE YOUR UNGRATEFUL soul.
If you haven't realized that,
then YOU'RE NOT CHRISTIAN, YOU'RE NOT SAVED, YOU'RE
LOST, and there's ONLY ONE FOOL in this whole deal:
SOMEONE IS LYING
With some many voices
in cyberspace and so-called "Christian" media saying so
many things, how do you know whom to believe?
How do you know who's
telling the Truth, and who isn't?
Obviously, since all
these voices are often contradictory, THEY
CAN'T ALL be true.
Are you telling us
religious people are liars? For
the most part, YES:
Either Jesus' death on
the cross, for our sins, WAS
SUFFICIENT to save us ETERNALLY, or it wasn't.
Some say it was, some
say it wasn't. They CAN'T both be true. Someone
blessings are FREE and unconditional, BY GRACE THRU FAITH,
or they can be bought. It's gotta be one or the other. Someone
Either the mark of the
beast will be a LITERAL mark
on someone's right hand or forehead, or it will be
attending a man-made building on Sunday, instead of
Saturday. They can't both be true. Someone
Either the Rapture
happens BEFORE the tribulation, or AFTER the tribulation. Both
CANNOT be true. Someone's been lying.
Either we're saved BY FAITH
ONLY, or we're OBLIGATED to observe the weekly Sabbath
and the 10 Commandments, as some religious people teach.
Both CAN'T be true. Someone
How can we tell who's
lying and who's "truthing"?
does GOD have to say about it?
We know God
CANNOT lie (Romans 3:4; HEBREWS 6:18). We
can TRUST what He says COMPLETELY (John 14:6).
We can TRUST WHAT
HE SAYS, not
WHAT SOMEONE ELSE SAYS He says:
GOD SAYS Jesus' death for
our sins IS ENOUGH to SAVE US FOREVER (Hebrews 10:14).
GOD SAYS His Grace IS
sufficient (2 Corinthians 12:9).
GOD SAYS we DO NOT have
to observe the weekly Sabbath or the 10 Commandments (Acts
15:28-29; Romans 13:8-10).
If we do, we're
obligated to keep the entire law, and we place ourselves
under the curse of the law. If we do, we FALL FROM GRACE,
and Christ becomes OF NO EFFECT TO US (Galatians
GOD SAYS all His
blessings are given to us FREELY, by grace. And that they
CANNOT BE EARNED OR BOUGHT thru "tithing", thru donations,
or thru "sowing seeds" (Acts 8:20; Romans 3:24; 8:32).
GOD SAYS the mark of the
beast will be a LITERAL, VISUAL mark on someone's right
hand or forehead (Revelation 13:16-18).
GOD DOESN'T SAY ANYWHERE
it's attending a man-made building on Sunday, instead of
GOD SAYS, unequivocally,
the Rapture happens right at the start of the tribulation,
PRIOR TO the tribulation judgments (Revelation 6:12-16;
SAYS, clear as crystal, that
we are saved by FAITH ONLY,by
simply receiving Jesus into our hearts and trusting His
death on the cross and His Resurrection to save us (Mark
16:16; Romans 10:9; Ephesians 2:8-9; Titus 3:5).
How do you know who's
telling the truth and who's lying?
CONTRADICT God are lying.
CONTRADICT God's written Word are lying.
CLAIM His written Word says something that IT DOESN'T SAY
AT ALL are lying.
That's why it's
SO IMPORTANT to STUDY God's Word and to KNOW, for
ourselves, WHAT GOD SAYS.
Don't take SOMEONE
ELSE'S WORD for it. Check it
out FOR YOURSELF!
Paul said it perfectly
in Romans 3:4:
"Let God be true, and
EVERY MAN a liar".

THE INVISIBLE WAR
The news is filled
with wars, rumors of war, and civil unrest in places as
disparate as Ukraine, Syria and Venezuela.
But there's another
war going on that nobody talks about.
It's THE MOST
IMPORTANT war. Yet, it doesn't get any press.
Most people AREN'T
EVEN AWARE of it.
Even those in ministry
rarely ever mention it, and don't really know what's at
war for your soul.
Even now, as you read
these words, there's a war
going on in the invisible realm of the spirit over your

you spend eternity with Him. Satan would like just as much
to drag you into eternal torment with him.
Who wins this war is ENTIRELY
DEPENDENT ON YOU!
WHAT? I thought that
God is greater and more powerful than Satan.
I thought Jesus
already won the victory at Calvary! Right again.
I thought He ALREADY
PAID FOR all my sins! He did!
Jesus won eternal
victory over Satan. That's true.
He is almighty, Satan

However, ONLY YOU CAN DECIDE WHO WINS THE WAR FOR YOUR
As much as God LOVES
YOU AND WANTS YOU TO spend eternity with Him, He didn't
make you a mindless robot. He didn't make you a submissive
slave, who has no say on the matter.
Quite the contrary: he
gave you something called "free will". It's your God-given RIGHT
You, and ONLY YOU, can
choose WHO WINS with regards to your eternal soul.
Why are God and
Satan so interested in your soul?
For the same reason:
because you bear the Image of
It's God's Image in
you that they're both after.
God put his own Image
in you (Genesis 1:27-28). Therefore, it rightfully belongs
Even after man

right to CHOOSE

if I don't want to choose? Can't I remain "neutral"?
There's no such thing.
Neutrality may work in human diplomacy, but NOT WHEN IT
COMES TO SPIRITUAL ISSUES.
In the spirit realm, there's
no middle ground.
It's gotta be one or

As long as you have
breath in your lungs, as long as YOU'RE PHYSICALLY ALIVE,
you can receive Jesus as Lord.
The thing is... you
don't know HOW MUCH LONGER you're going to live.

scare you. Nobody knows. "Tomorrow"
is not guaranteed to anyone. Even the next 5 MINUTES are
not guaranteed to anyone.
You only have TODAY: The

I wouldn't postpone

This is one war WHERE
ONLY YOU can determine the outcome.

TEACHING THE WORD
People who come to
faith in Christ through our ministry sometimes get all
excited and want to learn everything OVERNIGHT.
They think that by
bombarding me with questions they will reach this level of
knowledge in two weeks.
totally understand their excitement and would never do
anything to dampen their enthusiasm, new believers NEED
TO PACE THEMSELVES.
It is absolute MUST.
It's not a question of
HOW FAST YOU CAN READ the Bible, or our website's contents.
Even if you could read both in 10 minutes, it
means nothing, unless YOU ASSIMILATE what you've read,
and allow it TAKE ROOT deep in your spirit.
Jesus taught this
principle in the Parable of the Sower (Mark 4:1-20).
We sow the Seed
(Christ Himself) into your hearts, but UNLESS HE TAKES ROOT
THERE, the "cares of this world, the thorns, or the rocks"
will suffocate it (Mark 4:16-19).
Seeds DON'T grow into
BIG, STRONG TREES from one
day to the next (Mark 4:26-29).
Seeds MUST BE
fertilized (fed), then watered often or ON A DAILY BASIS.
The same is true about
the Divine Seed, who is Christ.
If that DOESN'T
happen, you'll always be a
SUPERFICIAL believer, AT BEST.
I guarantee you'll end
up discouraged, confused, be totally ineffective in the
Kingdom, and will never develop as a strong spiritual
This is not easy for a
beginner in the faith to grasp because it ALMOST sounds
like a contraction:
"Well, wait a minute,
Martel... Aren't you the one
who's always telling everybody to study the Bible"?
you're telling me NOT to study it so much"?
You can study it ALL YOU
Do it around the clock if you
What I'm saying is
DON'T TRY TO
and UNDERSTAND EVERYTHING
I don't know of ANY
WAY ON EARTH to make a
newborn baby become a full grown adult overnight.
I know of NO WAY ON
EARTH to make a child go from
kindergarten level to university level in 10 days.
That would be ABNORMAL
and is TOTALLY UNREALISTIC.
In the timeless
realm of spirit, these things take place instantly. In
the time-bound natural earth realm, where we find ourselves
at the moment, they TAKE TIME.
WAY to get around that.
It's NOT ABOUT how
many questions you ask or how many questions I answer.
It's about what
you ABSORB and allow to become DEEPLY
ROOTED in your heart.
I don't run a
spiritual fast-food joint.
We provide NUTRITIOUS,
Christ-centered teaching on a DAILY basis. We also provide
scriptural references so that you can study these things
for yourself, meditate on them, CHEW ON IT, DIGEST THEM,
become rooted and grounded in them, and GROW STRONG.
I didn't LEARN
everything I know from one day to the next. It's taken me
MANY YEARS of Bible study, being ALONE with God, where
there is NO ONE ELSE AROUND and no interruptions, COUNTLESS
HOURS of meditating His Word, wrestling with these issues,
SEEKING JESUS WITH ALL MY HEART, talking to the Holy Spirit
and LISTENING to Him.
You can learn MUCH of
what I know, and A LOT SOONER
than I did, by reading AND ASSIMILATING these daily
But even if I quit my
job, quit the ministry and DEVOTED MYSELF TOTALLY TO YOUR
NEEDS, I could not teach you
everything I know in a day, a week, a month, or even an
And no, I can't quit
my job, and WON'T quit the ministry for you or anyone else,
since I was called BY JESUS, not by man or by denomination.
You must allow
yourself TIME TO GROW.
As you do, you'll be
surprised how your perspective changes, as you come to
realize that things that seemed so important to you at
first are, in the Grand Scheme of things, far less
important than you once thought.
Well, what if the
Rapture happens while I'm still a babe in Christ?
You can't get any
"luckier" than that!
...Because you'll be
translated into the realm of spirit and THAT'S
WHERE YOU CAN ASSIMILATE EVERYTHING IN
AN INSTANT, which is not possible on this earth realm.
If that happens,
you'll learn everything quickly and the "easy way" instead
of the "hard way" like most of us this side of eternity
"Oh, well, then I'll
just stay a spiritual baby ‘til Christ comes".
No. The OTHER EXTREME is even
worse. It leads to SPIRITUAL ATROPHY, and that's A VERY
COSTLY AND DANGEROUS disease.
Don't go there. Don't play
games with Jesus, especially where Salvation is concerned.
I appreciate those who
are enthusiastic about learning God's Word. And
I encourage them to do so.
But please BE PATIENT.
Spiritual growth it's NOT
measured in terms of QUANTITY, but of QUALITY.

HOW MANY GODS ARE
In Deuteronomy 6:4 we
find the immortal words often recited in Hebrew worship:
Yahweh (Adonai) eloheinu Yahweh (Adonai) echad".
"Hear O Israel the
LORD our God is ONE".
It's often referred to
simply as the "Shema".
This verse is often
used by opponents of the Trinity, in a futile attempt to
DISPROVE the plurality within that One God:
"See? It says God is
ONE, not THREE".
Well, the doctrine of
the Holy Trinity has NEVER SAID there are THREE "gods",
but ONE God, WHO
manifests in THREE forms: Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
The PERFECT Unity of
the three in One God is often called The Godhead.
In fact the Hebrew
word echad used in this verse as "one" is what is
known in grammar as a
Collective nouns are
technically SINGULAR, yet contain A PLURALITY (more than
one) in themselves.
For example, the
U.S. ARMY is ONE army comprised of several branches
including the Air Force, Navy, Marines, Coast Guard and
National Guard, as well as
over one MILLION individual soldiers, yet it's only ONE
Your favorite football
or baseball TEAM is ONE team comprised
of more than A DOZEN players.
The CHOIR in your
congregation is ONE choir,
comprised of HOWEVER MANY singers.
The Church is ONE, but
it's comprised of millions or
billions of believers.
That echad IS a
collective noun can be clearly seen in Genesis 11:6:
"And the LORD said,
Behold, THE PEOPLE (PLURAL)
are ONE (echad)"...
And, again, in Genesis
"For this reason a man
will leave his father and mother and be united to his
wife, and THEY (plural) will
become ONE (echad) flesh".
Paul referred to this
tremendous Truth as "a great mystery".
However, he added,
nowhere is this "mystery" greater than with regards to
"Christ and His Church" (Ephesians 5:32).
ONLY ONE God. Praise His Name forever!
ONLY ONE Jesus, who IS that One God, praise His Name
ONE God, that ONE Jesus, contains WITHIN HIMSELF millions
if not billions of facets.
That's where the
Church comes in.
WHY do you think we're
called, COLLECTIVELY, the Body (singular) OF Christ?
Because we're ONE Body
comprised of MANY DIFFERENT "Body parts"... yet only
ONE Body, His Church, of which He is now and FOREVER
That One Jesus LIVES
in each member of His Body.
We are IN Him, and He
is IN us.
If you're born again,
that ONE Jesus LIVES IN you.
He created you, He
SAVED you. He BOUGHT YOU with
His own Blood.
One Jesus has EVERY RIGHT to MANIFEST thru you.
Why do you think He
gave you His Divine Nature? (2 Peter 1:4).
Why do you think He calls
you His Body?
He may be THE HEAD,
but the arms are Jesus, the legs are Jesus, the torso is
Jesus, the thighs are Jesus, the hands are Jesus, the feet
are Jesus, the toes are Jesus:
"For those He
KNEW IN ADVANCE, He also did PREDESTINATE to be CONFORMED
to the Image OF his Son, that He might be the firstborn
among many brethren" (Romans 8:29).
"Beloved, now we are
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" (1 John 3:2).
If you're born again, you're
not that big jerk you APPEAR to be.
You're not, and I'm
not, that ugly sinner we
APPEAR to be.
You're not even that
"nice Christian" you PRETEND to be.
IN YOU. He LIVES in me.
(it's already PRE-ARRANGED, a DONE DEAL) TO BE LIKE HIM.
No matter how we LOOK or
ACT right now...
We have a GLORIOUS and
marvelous Destiny to look forward to...
We're A BUNCH OF
JESUSES waiting to happen.

UNDER A CURSE
"For WHOEVER SHALL
KEEP THE WHOLE LAW, AND YET OFFEND
IN ONE POINT, HE IS GUILTY OF ALL.
For he that said: Do
not commit adultery, also said: Do not kill. Now if you
don't commit adultery, yet you kill, YOU HAVE BECOME A
TRANSGRESSOR OF THE LAW" (James 2:10-11).
MANY AS ARE OF THE WORKS OF THE LAW ARE UNDER THE CURSE: for
it is written, CURSED IS
EVERY ONE that CONTINUES NOT in ALL THINGS which are
written in the book of the law to do them" (Galatians
You can't say it ANY
CLEARER THAN THAT.
The Word of God is
clear that by the works of the law NO ONE is justified
(Romans 3:20; Galatians 2:16).
Furthermore, those who
are "OF THE WORKS of the Law" are UNDER THE CURSE", as we
just read above.
Why would ANYONE want to live
under the curse?
I can't understand WHY
some who call themselves "Christian" would
prefer THE BONDAGE of Law to the FREEDOM of the Spirit that
Yet that is EXACTLY
where many so-called Christians are today.
Deceived and brainwashed by
some recently invented denomination that promises
"salvation" and claims to be "the only true church" when
ALL THEY DO is put you, dear soul for whom Jesus died, BACK
UNDER THE CURSE from which He redeemed you with no less
than His own, priceless Blood (1 Peter 1:18-19).
"Christ HAS REDEEMED
US FROM THE CURSE OF THE LAW...That THE BLESSING of Abraham
might come on the Gentiles through Jesus Christ; that we
might receive...the Spirit THROUGH FAITH" (Galatians
The Spirit, "Christian"
friends, is the GUARANTEE of our Redemption (Romans
8:9; Ephesians 1:13-14).
If you have the
GUARANTEE, from God Himself, you need nothing else TO KNOW
that you're ETERNALLY SAVED (John 3:5; Ephesians 1:13-14).
If you received the Holy
Spirit (God's PERSONAL GUARANTEE of Redemption) BY FAITH,
WHY go back to a Law that never saved ANYONE?
WHY do you insist on
putting yourself UNDER THE CURSE?
Is that recently
invented religion - THAT WILL SOON DISAPPEAR and be
FORGOTTEN - worth YOUR

HIM ALONE to save you.

in NO ONE ELSE. There is NO

THE FIFTH SEAL
"And when he had opened

SOULS OF THEM THAT WERE SLAIN for the word of God, and FOR
THE TESTIMONY WHICH THEY HELD:
And they cried with a
loud voice, saying, HOW LONG,

YOU NOT JUDGE AND AVENGE OUR BLOOD ON THEM THAT DWELL

Whoa, whoa, whoa...
Hold on... Are you saying that Jesus APPROVES
OF these sins?
I'm saying that He
LOVES YOU, IN SPITE OF them.
I'm saying that He
ALREADY PAID FOR EVERY ONE OF those sins when He went to
STUPID WOULD IT BE FOR
YOU TO PAY for all that trash yourself, WHEN
JESUS ALREADY PAID FOR IT!!!
I'm saying that
He will TOTALLY CLEAN YOU UP.
I'm saying that if
you give Him YOUR HEART, He will give you His Heart.
I'm saying that if
you give Him YOUR FILTH, He will give you His
I'm saying that your
record in heaven will say that YOU NEVER SINNED IN YOUR
ENTIRE LIFE, because Jesus already paid for all your sins
and CANCELLED YOUR DEBT.
I'm saying that, as
far as God is concerned, you
can go SCOT FREE!

be a catch somewhere...

much money is it going to cost me?
ZERO. It's FREE.
Well, how come I hear
all those preachers on TV and all they talk about is money?
I don't know, man.
Jesus NEVER asked for money.
They're always trying
to sell you stuff...
I know, but Jesus
NEVER SOLD anything.
Well, wait... Don't I
have to give 10% or something?
No. Jesus never

No. I'm saying GIVE YOUR

and He will do
What if I'm gay?
Give your heart to
Jesus and He will cleanse you FROM ALL SIN,
no matter WHAT it is, no matter WHAT you've done.
But I've heard many
Christians and even pastors say that Jesus hates gays and
that all gays will go to hell...
Forget what "they"
say: Jesus said that WHOEVER
COMES TO HIM, He will IN NO WAY REJECT (John 6:37).
He won't reject gays, or any
other sinner that comes to Him with all his/her heart.
Are you SERIOUS? Do
you mean to tell me that ALL
I need to be saved, forgiven and cleaned up is GIVE MY
HEART TO JESUS?
That's EXACTLY what
You mean it's THAT
YES. It's THAT easy.
Well, hold on now...
How come I never
heard this before?
I don't know. It's
been in the Bible for the
past 2,000 years.
Well, suppose I give
my heart to Jesus, and then I go back and commit some of
those sins again...
He PAID FOR THOSE,
TOO. Every last one of them!
He paid for those
sins, too? You're NOT putting me on...?
NOPE. He's got your
back. He's got you covered:
past, present and future.
Hey man, wake up...
I'm offering you THE BEST
DEAL EVER OFFERED, IN ALL THE AGES!!!
Well, how do I give
my heart to Jesus?
Geez... I thought
you'd never ask!
You have to INVITE Him
to enter your heart, and you must MEAN IT (SINCERELY).
Tell Him something
like this FROM THE VERY
DEPTHS OF your being:
"Lord Jesus, please
save me. Come into my heart. I'm sorry for my sins and I
repent of them. I receive you as only God and Savior. I
believe you died for my sins and rose physically from the
dead. I trust you completely for Salvation. I give you my
whole heart and my entire life. I am now and forever yours.
Thank you for cleaning me and saving me".
I don't know... I
feel like a new person...
YOU ARE a
Well, what happens
It's already happened:
You're saved FOREVER, you're clean.
Enjoy your relationship with
Jesus, talk to Him whenever you like, get baptized in
water, read the New Testament 15 minutes a day, and this
daily message anytime you want.
These things won't
save you. You're already saved. But they will help you grow
and enjoy Jesus that much more.
Now, give me a hug.

Kingdom of God.

music is third rate ENTERTAINMENT, pure and simple.
It's BOREDOM KILLER
for the religiously bored.
One need only track the
evolution of religious music to gauge its decline: from
David's profound, Spirit-filled, worshipful, stirring
Psalms to today's meaningless fluff.
The Early Church had NO
contemporary anything, let alone "Christian" music.
That's why music is
hardly mentioned in the New Testament.
They used Hebrew
liturgy based mostly on the Psalms.
Jesus and His
disciples sang Hallel (Psalms 113-118) at the end of
the Last Supper (Matthew 26:30).
Christians kept using
that BIBLICAL, SPIRITUAL MUSIC for
THE FIRST ONE THOUSAND YEARS OF Church history.
Chants were not invented until the ninth and tenth century.
As solemn and
monotonous as they are, at least they draw the listener
In Ephesians 5:19,
Paul tells us "be CONTINUOUSLY

After the Reformation
in the 16th century, Christians began to write hymns, some
of which are still sung today.
They are, for the most
part, incredibly boring, and teeming with religion.
A few, however, do
"hit home" and reflect Bible doctrine.
That brings us to
today's aptly named CONTEMPORARY "Christian" music.
It's FAR MORE
contemporary than it is Christian.
It's a FAILED religious
attempt to offer Christians, and Christian youth in
particular, an "alternative" to secular pop music.
As so-called Christian
TV emerged in the 50's and then became widespread from the
70's to the present, such
music became A NECESSITY.
After all, you
couldn't JUST TALK in front of the cameras for TWO SOLID
HOURS, with no breaks, so you had to provide some
"entertainment" for the audience.
Most of it is
RELIGIOUS GARBAGE, and boring as hell.
EVEN WHEN it says the right
words, which is rare, it totally trivializes them by
stating them in a casual manner, thus turning them into

If YOU like it, and
want to hear it, that's up to you.
What I'm saying is: IT'S
NO SUBSTITUTE FOR deep study and meditation of God's Word.
It's NO SUBSTITUTE FOR a
deep, intimate relationship with the Savior, where WE
ARE CONTINUOUSLY BEING FILLED WITH HIS SPIRIT (as Scripture
commands) and where His FULLNESS manifests more and more in
our daily lives.

IS EXACTLY what it has become: A SORRY SUBSTITUTE.

dismal. They're NOT CERTAIN OF ANYTHING, including
THEIR OWN salvation, much less are they capable of bringing
others to saving faith in Christ.
I rest my case.
"Christian" music HAS FAILED
Not only has it NOT
KEPT Christian youth from listening to decaying secular
music. It has replaced THE
SCRIPTURES, AND JESUS HIMSELF, as the center of attention,
and prevented Him from filling our EMPTY, ANEMIC hearts.

THAT HOLE IN YOUR
generation is more comfortable and affluent than any other.
It has more homes,
cars, clothes, bling, money, sex, food, drugs, booze,
entertainment, comforts, gadgets and OUTER conveniences
than any other, yet has A
HUGE HOLE on the INSIDE.
INNER HOLE is INVISIBLE, we try to compensate for our
inner emptiness by FILLING
THE VISIBLE, PHYSICAL, OUTER HOLES in our bodies with every
imaginable item, and then some.
That inner vacancy is
reflected everywhere you look:
It used to take REAL
TALENT to become a celebrity, but not anymore.
Today people become
famous for keeping up their surgically enhanced physical
appearance, engaging in real weird or raunchy behavior in
front of cameras, and bragging about their sexual exploits.
One day a person
claims to be "in love" with someone, marries that someone,
and three days later is sleeping WITH SOMEONE ELSE. Wow!
Some serious "love" that was!
People have babies not
because they really want them, but because they consider it
"cool" and, besides, it will get them even MORE PRESS.
To what lengths
certain individuals will go in trying to fill their
emptiness is reflected in popular culture where unbridled
SEX - the more devious the better - drugs and scandalous
behavior are the order of the day.
But the sad reality is
that ALL OF THOSE ARTIFICIAL
FILLERS may TEMPORARILY fill some of the OUTER HOLES in our
bodies, BUT NONE OF THAT will fill THE GAPING HOLE INSIDE:
You had the most
amazing drug-enhanced, alcohol fueled sex in the world,
It "satisfied" you for
15 minutes, or so IT SEEMED: WHAT do you do WITH THE REST
OF THE DAY or, for that matter, WITH THE
REST OF YOUR LIFE?
Because when those 15
minutes are OVER, you'll feel
EMPTIER than before.
And WHAT WILL BECOME OF YOU
when you get older and are no longer that attractive, or
can no longer perform as you once did?
You made the cover of
that magazine and were chosen "the sexiest whatever in the
world", THEN WHAT?
You became a fashion
icon, or attended that awards show and were tagged as "best
dressed", THEN WHAT?
You became famous
after writing that best seller, recording that hit song,
starring in that hit movie, or TV show, THEN WHAT?
You slept with
EVERYONE you came across, of both sexes, had threesomes,
foursomes, group sex, you name it, THEN WHAT?
You have all the
money, fancy cars, jewels, designer duds, wild parties, all
the I Pods, I Pads, Kindles and Blackberries available,
AFTER all of the above is
over, deep inside where
THE REAL YOU IS HIDING, you'll be just as
LONELY, just AS SCARED, just as STARVED FOR TRUE LOVE, and
JUST AS EMPTY as you were before.
Because NO AMOUNT OF
ARTIFICIAL FILLER can FILL THE VOID, or SATISFY the deep
longing and desperate craving in your heart of hearts!
You can keep on
PRETENDING to be someone you're NOT...
And that INNER HOLE
will only grow BIGGER and BIGGER...
Or, you can FACE TRUTH
and realize that what you
really are is JESUS STARVED.
You need Jesus, MORE THAN you
You need to KNOW
HIM, deeply and intimately, and receive His Life.
You need to

"OF THE PEOPLE THERE

If the Church were still on
earth, wouldn't the millions or billions of Christians be
"with" Christ? Wouldn't we be ON HIS SIDE?
Scripture makes it
clear that Jesus treads the winepress of God's wrath at
His Second Coming (Joel 3;13-14; Revelation 14:17-20;
What a CLEAR

In addition to the

They are raptured prior to the
7 bowl judgments and Armageddon (Revelation 15:2).
The "post trib

INVENTED BY LEGALISTIC, fear-filled religious minds. The
same minds who invented "salvation by works". The
same minds that invented the lie about "purgatory".
They feel that Jesus'
Sacrifice isn't sufficient to eternally save us.
They, therefore, insist on PAYING for their own sins by
SUFFERING through the horrible tribulation.
That's why they also
tampered with Scripture (Matthew 24:29) and mistranslated
it ON PURPOSE to accommodate their fearful eschatology.
NO ONE gets raptured

KINGS FOR AN HOUR
"Just as you saw that
the feet and toes were partly of baked clay and partly of
iron, so THIS WILL BE A
DIVIDED KINGDOM; yet it will have some
of the strength of iron in it, even as you saw iron
mixed with clay.
As the toes were
partly iron and partly clay, so this kingdom will be partly
strong and partly brittle: And just as you saw the iron
mixed with baked clay, so THE PEOPLE WILL BE A MIXTURE AND
WILL NOT REMAIN UNITED, any more than iron mixes with clay.
In the time of those kings,
the God of heaven WILL SET UP A KINGDOM THAT WILL NEVER BE
DESTROYED, NOR WILL IT BE LEFT TO ANOTHER PEOPLE.
IT WILL CRUSH ALL THOSE
KINGDOMS AND BRING THEM TO AN END, BUT IT WILL ITSELF
ENDURE FOREVER" (Daniel 2:41-44).
The tribulation world
won't look or function anything like our world.
Whatever survives the
trumpet judgments will probably live in primitive
conditions for those 3½ years.
The LEAST affected by the
avalanche of calamities will be those nations that border
and surround the Mediterranean basin.
In other words, the
territory that used to belong to the ancient Roman Empire.
From that area, and in
the aftermath of enormous and unprecedented devastation -
including but not limited to the instant destruction by
fire of ONE THIRD of the earth's surface, and the death of
ONE THIRD of the world's population - 10
kings will arise (Daniel 7:24).
As we read in the
verses above, they will differ greatly culturally and
The ONE COMMON
INTEREST THAT THEY WILL SHARE is their hatred for Jesus and
their adamant refusal to accept Him as their King
Who these kings are,
we are not told.
We know that, as of
the first century A.D. (when Revelation was written), they
had not yet received their kingdom.
They get to reign for
"one hour" (a brief period of time) with Antichrist.
Are they present
monarchs? Who knows?
As far as European
monarchies go, we don't know who'll stay and who'll leave.
We don't know who may
cry out to Jesus at the very last moment and be raptured.
Most present European
kings are mere parliamentary figureheads with no real power
or ability to make national decisions or dictate policy.
The tribulation kings
WILL HAVE THOSE POWERS.
Whether they're people
we presently know and read about in People, Time or Vanity
Fair, or guys we never heard of who seize power at that
time, we'll have to wait and see.
It's almost a sure bet
that Jordan's King Abdullah will be among them.
Why? For one thing,
he's Muslim and won't go in the Rapture unless he has a
last minute conversion.
For another, it's very
noteworthy that THE ONLY Middle Eastern country UNTOUCHED
by Antichrist will be Jordan (Daniel 11:41).
At the moment, they
have a fragile peace treaty with Israel.
Jordan, however, will
betray Israel and appropriate the Holy Land during the
tribulation (Ezekiel 36:5-7; Joel 3:19-21).
ONLY AFTER these 10
kings rise to power, will Antichrist emerge from the pit
(Daniel 7:24; Revelation 11:7).
They will be so
impressed by him, his fame, his legendary military
achievements, his resurrection, and apparent "immortality",
that they will VOLUNTARILY give their power and kingdoms to
him (Revelation 13:3-4; 17:13, 17).
Just as long as he can
get rid of Jesus...
For 3½ years
Antichrist will get to be "king of kings".
What must happen,
then, in order for Antichrist to return to earth?
1. The tribulation
must begin (Revelation 6:12).
2. The Rapture must
take place (Revelation 7:9-16).
3. Trumpet judgments
must begin (Revelation 8:1-3).
4. 10 kings must rise
to power in the area surrounding the Mediterranean (Daniel

LOVE IS A PERSON
As rich, precise and
diverse as the English language is, being the language of
science, and having the largest vocabulary of any language;
it's rather deficient where love is concerned.
The English dictionary
provides no fewer than 13
different definitions for the word "love", and they're
as different as day and night. It can mean:
1. Strong affection
2. Sexual desire.
3. Affection based
on admiration, or common interests.
4. Warm attachment,
enthusiasm, or devotion.
5. The object of attachment,
devotion, or admiration.
6. A beloved person -often used
as a term of endearment.
7. Unselfish loyal and
benevolent concern for the good of another: as the fatherly
concern of God for humankind.
8. Brotherly concern for
9. A person's adoration of God.
12. In tennis, it
13. Last, but not least, it means THE
PERSONIFICATION OF love, Jesus.
While the English word
"love" can be used to express any of the above, the Greek
language, in which the New Testament was written, is much
Agape = deep, TRUE,
Divine, SACRIFICIAL love.
This is the word used
throughout the New Testament to describe God, His Nature,
and in the "love chapter", 1 Corinthians chapter 13.
Eros is passionate love,
with sensual desire and longing. The Modern Greek word
"erotas" means "intimate love."
Philia is dispassionate
virtuous love. It's the love or loyalty to friends, family,
and community, and requires virtue, equality and
Storge means "natural
affection", like that felt by parents for offspring.
In 1 John 4:16 God
describes Himself as Agape:
"God IS Agape".
Agape (God) is A
Agape is Divine Love
and Divine Substance (1 John 4:16).
On this day when
"love" is celebrated in large parts of the world, please
remember that NO MORTAL LOVE,
no matter how grand, can satisfy the deepest longings of
Only Divine Love
(Jesus) can do that.
There are millions of
"eros", "phileos", and even "storges", but THERE'S
ONLY ONE "agape".

Have you EXPERIENCED agape?

thing, but REAL

THE WINEPRESS OF GOD

from Edom, with dyed garments from Bozrah? This that is
GLORIOUS IN HIS APPAREL, traveling in the greatness of his
I that speak in
righteousness, MIGHTY TO SAVE.
Why ARE YOU RED IN
YOUR APPAREL and your
garments LIKE HIM THAT TREADS IN THE WINEPRESS?
I HAVE TRODDEN THE WINEPRESS ALONE;
and of the people there was none with me: for I will tread
them in my anger, and trample them in my fury; AND
THEIR BLOOD (like the juice of grapes trodden in a
winepress) SHALL BE SPRINKLED
UPON MY GARMENTS and I will stain all my raiment.
For THE DAY OF
VENGEANCE is in my heart and THE YEAR OF MY REDEEMED HAS
COME" (Isaiah 63:1-4).
God's Word speaks
repeatedly about His winepress.
Wine presses were typically
located within vineyards, for convenience and easy
In ancient times,
grapes were stomped in wine presses to extract their juice
which would eventually ferment into wine.
They consisted of a
stomping area, with a small hole for further grape
crushing, and a long narrow canal through which the juice
would flow, be filtered, collected, and finally stored in
jars (Picture below right).
Israel is God's vineyard (Isaiah
WHERE God's winepress is located:
kingdom there was a place called the King's Garden or the
King's Winepress, on the Kidron Valley, just southeast of
Jerusalem's Old City (Song of Solomon 8:11-12).
About 500 yards
southwest from it is the place called Akeldama or "Field of
Blood" in the Valley of Hinnom, where Judas hung
himself (Acts 1:19).
know the winepress is in Israel and that it runs through
the Kidron Valley.
This is confirmed in
"Let the nations (gentiles)
be aroused and come up to the Valley of Jehoshaphat
(another name for the Kidron Valley):
For there I will sit TO JUDGE
ALL THE SURROUNDING NATIONS. Put in the sickle, for the
harvest is ripe. Come, tread, FOR
THE WINE PRESS IS FULL; The vats overflow, for their
wickedness is great. Multitudes,
the valley of decision! For the day of the LORD is near in
the valley of decision"...
In ancient times the
location of the King's Winepress was aptly named Baal-hamon
(meaning "Lord of the multitude",
Song of Solomon 8:11).
again tells us the winepress
is "outside the city" (Jerusalem) and give us more
details about what will take place at the end of the

out of the temple in heaven, and he too had a sharp sickle.
Still another angel...came... and called in a loud voice to

The angel swung his
sickle on the earth, GATHERED
ITS GRAPES AND THREW THEM INTO THE GREAT WINEPRESS of God's
They were trampled IN THE
WINEPRESS OUTSIDE THE CITY, AND BLOOD FLOWED OUT OF THE
PRESS, RISING AS HIGH AS THE HORSES' BRIDLES for a distance
of 1,600 stadia" (about 180
miles, which is the approximate distance from Megiddo,
down the Jezreel Valley to the Kidron Valley in Jerusalem,
down to Ezion Geber on the Gulf of Aqaba at the northern
tip of the Red Sea).
Whether the phrase
"horses' bridles" is literal or merely a figure of speech, we're
talking about a veritable RIVER OF BLOOD running down the
Jezreel Valley and all the way down the Kidron Valley.
Grape harvest in
Israel begins on the 15th of Av and ENDS
on Tishri 10, which is Yom Kippur (Babylonian Talmud,
tractate Ta'anit 30b-31a).
This perfectly matches
tribulation chronology that the Second Coming takes place
on Yom Teruah and the tribulation officially ends on Yom
The only question remaining
is WHO IS THE PERSON THAT TREADS THE WINEPRESS, and
tramples his enemies into rivers of blood?
tell us His Name:
"And I saw heaven
opened, and behold a white horse; and He that sat upon it

God (John 1:1).
And the armies which
were in heaven followed Him upon white horses, clothed in
fine linen, white and clean.
And out of His mouth
goes forth a sharp sword, that with it He should smite the
nations: and He shall rule
them with a rod of iron: and He TREADS THE WINEPRESS OF THE
FIERCENESS AND WRATH OF Almighty God.
And He has on His robe
and on His thigh a Name written, KING
OF KINGS, AND LORD OF LORDS" (Revelation 19: 11-16).
What an awesome Jesus!
The English word
"gentile" refers to those who are non-Jews.
However, the Greek
word ethnos in the New Testament still refers to
non-Israelites but is also translated as "nations" or
"heathen". Same goes for the Hebrew word goy (singular)
or goyim (plural).
In biblical context,
nations other than Israel were considered "goyim" or
"ethnos" (gentiles) because they were outside the
covenant made with God's chosen.
regardless of his ethnicity, should ever think of himself
or herself as "gentile", since we're NOT outside God's
covenant, but rather very
This is Paul's clear
teaching in Ephesians 2:11-19:
being in time past gentiles in the flesh... were without
Christ, being alien from the commonwealth of Israel, and strangers
from the covenants of promise, having no hope and
without God in the world.
IN Christ Jesus you who... were far off are made near
by the Blood of Christ... because thru
Him we both (Jews and non-Jews) have
access by one Spirit unto the Father.
Now, therefore, you
are no more strangers and foreigners (gentiles), but
fellow-citizens with the saints and of
the household of God".
So, while in the flesh
many of us are non-Jews, if you have received the Jewish
Messiah, Jesus Christ, INTO YOUR HEART AS God and Savior,
you have been circumcised in spirit, and in spirit have
joined the congregation (ekklesia)
of God's Chosen, spiritual Israel.
in covenant with God, therefore, no longer "gentile".
God is spirit (John
4:24). Therefore, entering
into covenant with God is done spiritually, not physically.
That's why it's
so critical FOR JESUS TO ENTER OUR SPIRITS, AND FOR US TO
BE SPIRITUALLY "BORN AGAIN" (John
As Paul also said in
"For he is not a Jew who
is one outwardly; neither is that circumcision, which
is outward in the flesh: But
he is a Jew, who is one inwardly; and circumcision
is that OF THE HEART, in the spirit...
Cutting off a piece of
skin never made anyone spiritual, nor a child of God.
That was just a shadow
(outward demonstration) of the real circumcision which is
OF THE HEART, spoken of even in the Tanach (Deuteronomy
30:6; Jeremiah 4:4).
It's circumcision OF
THE HEART that translates us from the power of darkness
into the Kingdom of God (Colossians 1:13), from being
gentile to being a true SPIRITUAL Jew.

"Therefore LEAVING THE
ELEMENTARY PRINCIPLES of the doctrine of Christ, LET
US GO ON UNTO MATURITY" (Hebrews 6:1)
There is AN ENORMOUS
AMOUNT OF CONFUSION about what a prophet is.
Most Christians FIND
PLEASURE IN CARELESSLY AND IGNORANTLY labeling others
"false prophet", simply because THEIR TEACHING doesn't
conform to their own beliefs, or simply because SOME of
their TEACHING changes or turns out to be wrong.
including those who minister, HAVE NO CLUE about what a
prophet is, OR ABOUT THE
DIFFERENCE BETWEEN a Bible teacher and a prophet.
The Bible makes A CLEAR
DISTINCTION between the two (Matthew 23:34; Luke 11:49;
Acts 13:1; 1 Corinthians 12:28-29; Ephesians 4:11).
THINGS that ARE NOT WRITTEN
IN the Bible.
PREDICT things that
are NOT WRITTEN IN the
Prophets are those WHO
CLAIM TO have heard DIRECTLY FROM God, and who, IN GOD'S
NAME PREDICT specific things that are NOT FOUND in the
If someone prophesies,
for instance, that a large quake will hit the Western U.S.
in September 2013, THAT IS
PROPHESYING, since that statement is
NOT FOUND in Scripture.
If someone, on the
other hand, teaches there will be a huge quake of earth and
sky prior to, or concurrent with, the Rapture, THAT
IS NOT PROPHESYING, THAT IS TEACHING, since such event IS
CLEARLY PREDICTED IN THE BIBLE (Haggai 2:6-7; Matthew
24:29; Revelation 6:12).
If someone PREDICTS
that "God will destroy all homosexuals" within a certain
period of time, THAT IS PROPHESYING, since NO SUCH
STATEMENT is found in Scripture:
It's also prophesying
FALSELY. Why? It CONTRADICTS
Scripture. God wants to SAVE ALL SINNERS, INCLUDING
homosexuals (John 3:17).
If He wanted to
destroy SINNERS Jesus never would have gone to the cross,
and would have done away WITH ALL OF US AGES ago.
O.K., I get it. But

NOT WRITTEN when he first uttered them, nor were

Eventually, they were
inspired by the Holy Spirit to
also write them down for posterity, for which we're very
Many of their
prophecies came to pass during their lifetime, or shortly
thereafter, exactly as predicted. Hence Israelites KNEW
they were TRUE PROPHETS of God.
Curiously, most of
God's prophets were godly people, but not all.
We have Jonah who was
told by God to prophesy to Nineveh and he refused and ran
away. It took God's supernatural intervention, and a
"whale" of an experience, to bring him back.
He is the only TRUE
prophet whose prophecy DID NOT happen, but Scripture gives
us the reason: the people of
Nineveh, from the king down, put on sackcloth and ashes and
repented, and so did God, of the evil he had prophesied
against them through Jonah.
Then there's Balaam, a
TRUE prophet, and also a greedy SOB who would have CURSED
Israel for money, had the
Spirit of God not put the right words in his mouth, against
own donkey rebukes you, YOU KNOW that you're a real
jackass (Numbers 22:30-31).
according to Deuteronomy 18:17-22, ALWAYS
get it right.
That means, that what
a TRUE PROPHET predicts WILL ALWAYS HAPPEN EXACTLY as he
(or she) said.
Bible TEACHERS, on the
other hand, ARE NOT EVEN REMOTELY HELD TO SUCH HIGH
Bible TEACHERS base
their TEACHING SOLELY ON the WRITTEN Word of God.
Again: Bible TEACHERS base
their TEACHING SOLELY ON the
Bible, the WRITTEN Word of God.
God's Word is INERRANT. Bible
Bible teachers DO
THEIR BEST to study, understand, and explain WHAT IS
WRITTEN in God's Word.
We, however, ARE
The Bible is a VERY
LARGE Book that deals with a huge variety of topics, SOME
VERY DEEP, and which often uses symbolism, and peculiar
language unlike our own since it was written 2,000 - 3,500
NO ONE on this earth knows
and understands EVERYTHING written in the Bible, I don't
care WHO they are.
Hence, good Bible
teachers progressively gain
better and deeper knowledge on various subjects, among
them Bible prophecy.
When a Bible teacher
INADVERTENTLY teaches error, it makes him A LOUSY TEACHER,
NOT make him a FALSE PROPHET.
Repeat: TEACHERS are
If a Bible TEACHER
makes an UNINTENTIONAL mistake, YOU
GOT NO MORE RIGHT TO CALL HIM "FALSE PROPHET" THAN YOU HAVE
TO CALL YOUR 5TH GRADE TEACHER "FALSE PROPHET" for
mistakenly teaching that John Tyler was the 11th
President of the United States instead of the 10th.
THE ONLY THING that Bible
teachers are held TOTALLY accountable for, and which
THEY MUST ALWAYS BE ACCURATE about, is Salvation.
All else, INCLUDING
written Bible prophecy, is
SUBJECTIVE from a human perspective.
That's why sometimes
even born-again, Spirit-filled, well-meaning individuals
DIFFER ON doctrine that is NON-ESSENTIAL to Salvation.
That's also why OUR
TEACHING MUST ALWAYS BE EVALUATED first and foremost by the
written Word and, secondly, by the Spirit's witness.
Jesus made it clear
that ONLY THOSE WITHOUT SIN may cast stones (John 8:7).
So before you throw
that rock, you better make
DAMNED SURE that YOU'VE NEVER MADE A MISTAKE, HAVE ALWAYS
BEEN RIGHT ABOUT EVERYTHING, and that your DOCTRINE
ABOUT EVERY BIBLICAL TOPIC, INCLUDING BIBLE PROPHECY, IS
100% CORRECT and SCRIPTURAL ALL
HUGE DIFFERENCE between PROPHESYING (predicting
something NOT found in the
Bible) AND TEACHING about
what IS WRITTEN in the Bible.
It's time for the Body
of Christ to GROW UP and STOP
ACTING LIKE SPOILED, IGNORANT BRATS.
MONDAY, FEBRUARY 10,
TWO WOMEN IN
Revelation is a Book
We have the
personification of Divine Love and Righteousness in Christ,
and the embodiment of hate and evil in Antichrist.
We have the born-again
Church basking in heavenly glory, while
unregenerate humans - religious and non-religious alike -
wither, suffer and perish on earth under truckloads of
And we have TWO
WOMEN who are as different as night and day:
The FIRST woman is
portrayed in Revelation chapter 12 as being radiant,
clothed with the sun, the moon under her feet, and CROWNED
with 12 stars.
She gives birth to "a
male Child", the Body of Christ, which is immediately
caught up (raptured, same Greek word) to God and His
As God foretold in
Genesis 3:15, THERE'S
ENMITY BETWEEN the woman and Satan, between his seed
(Antichrist) and her seed.
Her seed is both
spiritual (the Church) and physical which is natural
Once Satan is evicted
from heaven by Michael and hurled unto the earth where he
can no longer accuse the woman's spiritual seed, he sets
his sights on her natural offspring, who were left behind
on the earth (Revelation 12:13-17).
What her natural
offspring goes through for 3½ years is somewhat reminiscent
of the Exodus from Egypt:
A. They flee into the
B. They are carried
off on "eagles' wings" (Exodus 19:4; Revelation 12:14).
C. As Pharaoh pursued
them, in order to destroy them, they are persecuted by
Satan and Antichrist who try to destroy them.
D. In both cases, they
are SUPERNATURALLY delivered from perishing by water
(crossing the Red Sea in Exodus, and the flood Satan will
send to sweep them away in Revelation).
While Israelites and
God's saints are being viciously persecuted, the
harlot pretends not to notice.
That's not surprising
since she's also depicted as "being
drunk" with the blood of Jesus' saints and prophets (Revelation
That brings us to the
second woman in Revelation, depicted in chapters 17 and 18 as
a harlot who actually "rides" the Antichrist.
He carries her on his
back for most of the tribulation, then
suddenly turns against her and destroys her, wiping her off
This great whore,
given entirely to lust and carnal pleasures, has
a long history of spiritual fornication and an equally long
record of abominations which fill the golden cup she
proudly holds in her hand.
clearly identifies her as the
city of Rome.
Rome, and anything or
anyone connected to Rome, will
be destroyed through the Antichrist and his 10-king
But, ultimately, as
Revelation 17:16-17 makes abundantly clear, its
destruction will happen by Divine Decree.
God Himself has "put
it in their hearts to fulfill His purpose", and to hate the
whore and burn her with fire.
In contrast to
Jerusalem, over which Jesus wept (Luke 19:41-44) foreseeing
its destruction at the hands of this wicked harlot, Revelation
19:1-4 records the heavenly reaction at the harlot's
All of heaven praises God for
His righteous judgment, with not one, not two, but THREE
The harlot will be
destroyed NEVER TO RISE AGAIN (Revelation
And all the writers
and poets that, contrary to God's Word, have called Rome
"the ETERNAL city" will end up looking like fools.
SUNDAY, FEBRUARY 9,
CONVICTION HAS NOT
If someone asked me to
characterize the 21st century church in one simple phrase
it would be:
described it as having "LITTLE strength" (Revelation 3:8).
In other words:
spiritual pushovers: religious wimps, with NO CONVICTIONS.

SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 8,
DON'T TRUST THAT
Today a lot of
"Christians" around the world will congregate in thousands
of religious buildings thinking
that doing so makes them righteous and "better" than
They think that by
attending a religious service in those buildings they are
"observing the Sabbath" as required by the Fourth
They'll then boast
about being the "only Sabbath
keepers" in Christendom.
For starters, NO REAL
Christian can live under the Ten Commandments.
REAL Christian can live under the 10 Commandments.
REAL Christians TRUST
God and His never-failing Grace (Ephesians 2:8-9).
And the New Testament
is CLEAR that we CANNOT live
under God's Grace and the Law at the same time (Romans
11:6; Galatians 5:4).
NEVER TOLD ANYONE TO CONGREGATE ANYWHERE on the Sabbath.
Here's the Fourth
"Remember the Sabbath
day, to keep it holy. Six days shall you labor, and do all
But the seventh day is
the Sabbath of the LORD your God: IN
IT YOU SHALL NOT DO ANY WORK, you, nor your son, nor
your daughter, your manservant, nor your maidservant, nor
your cattle, nor your stranger that is within your gates"
Can someone please
show me WHERE it says that
people are to congregate in a building, or anywhere
else, on the Sabbath?
The answer: NOWHERE.
That the Sabbath is
observed by congregating in a building WAS
INVENTED BY MAN.
It has never been
COMMANDED by God.
All God said is "DON'T
WORK on the Sabbath", period.
Well, what about
Doesn't Luke 4:16 say
"He went INTO THE SYNAGOGUE on the Sabbath as
was HIS CUSTOM"?
Yes. By the first
century A.D., 1,500 years
AFTER Moses gave the Law, and 600 years after going into
Babylonian captivity, Jews had INVENTED teaching
centers called synagogues and acquired THE CUSTOM of
Exile had FORCED THEM
to do so because they lived in a strange land, among people
who did not believe in their God or live according to their
Had they NOT done so,
they would have been totally assimilated into Babylonian
society and culture, and would have ceased to exist.
Had Jewishness disappeared,
there would have been NO Jewish Messiah, and the entire
world would be lost, with zero hope of redemption.
Jesus, being Jewish,
simply followed Jewish CUSTOM of His time.
He WASN'T following
God's Commandment, since God
NEVER GAVE such commandment.
In fact, synagogues
were invented A WHOLE MILLENNIUM AFTER the 10 Commandments
Well, but shouldn't we
follow Jesus' example?
If you REALLY want to
"follow Jesus' example", then
I WANT TO SEE YOU AT THE LOCAL JEWISH SYNAGOGUE NEXT
"Cause Lord KNOWS that
Jesus NEVER attended a Seventh Day Adventist building, or a
Church of God building on Saturday or any other day,
since THERE WERE NONE.
The Seventh Day
Adventist denomination was INVENTED a mere 150
years ago (1863), and the (so-called) Church of God was
INVENTED 67 years ago (1946)!!!
Those are UNDENIABLE,
So, EITHER attend
Jewish SYNAGOGUE ON SATURDAY, or
STOP CLAIMING to "follow Jesus' example" or to "observe the

some stupid "Sunday law", not even mentioned in Scripture,
but because the
ONLY worship allowed will be that of Satan and the
Those who come to TRUE
FAITH in Christ during that horrendous time, will be
persecuted and forced to meet
secretly either at some outdoor location or in each other's
homes, like the Early Church (Romans 16:5; 1
Corinthians 16:19; Colossians 4:15; Philemon 1:2; Acts
As it was with the
Early Church, where so many were persecuted and killed for
refusing to worship the emperor, it
will take TRUE, DEEP CONVICTION to stand for Christ and be
willing to give one's life rather than worship antichrist
or take his mark.
True Sabbath keeping DOES
NOT CONSIST OF congregating in a building on Saturday.
TAUGHT anyone to congregate in those buildings.
"The Most High DOES
NOT LIVE IN HOUSES MADE BY HUMAN HANDS" (Acts 7:48).
The TRUE Sabbath is
kept by NOT WORKING (NOT
TRUSTING our own works), but BY COMPLETELY RESTING (trusting)
Jesus and HIS PERFECT AND SUFFICIENT WORK of Redemption for
That's what the Fourth
Commandment was trying to teach Israelites: CEASE FROM YOUR
WORKS, REST, and TRUST ONLY
"Cause WORKS will
NEVER save you! (Romans 3:20; Galatians 2:16)
Attending a man-made
building on Saturday HAS NOT
SAVED, OR "HELPED" SAVE, anyone, EVER!
Going to a religious
building on Saturday doesn't
make anyone righteous any more than going into a bakery
makes them a doughnut.
Let it go, Krispy
FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 7,
MUST ALL AGREE ?
Some people have A
VERY HIGH OPINION of THEIR opinion.
I'm always a bit
amused when someone says that THEY "disagree" with our
teaching or that THEY agree with "most of it", clearly
implying that they "disagree" with SOME of it.
Like THEIR OPINION is
the final arbiter of Truth.
Frankly, I don't give
an anorexic rat's behind about THEIR opinion.
Nor do I lose any
sleep thinking "gee, what am I going to do? So-and-so
DOESN'T AGREE with my teachings".
The ONLY "opinion" I
care about is God's.
Unless someone can
show me, in His written Word, that His Opinion differs with
my teachings, I COULDN'T CARE LESS WHAT ANYONE ELSE THINKS.
The FALLIBLE opinions
of MORTALS DO NOT CHANGE IMMORTAL Truth.
I have no problem with
I respect HONEST,
unbiased, Bible-based dissent.
What I do have
problems with is those who differ yet VERY RARELY justify
their dissent with the Bible.

I'm talking about
those who've been Christian
for YEARS AND YEARS...
I can't believe how
UTTERLY FOOLISH and FULL OF YOURSELVES some of you are...
A few cases in point:
1. The Christian who STILL
THINKS he's "lost"
I have done MORE

ALL OTHER TOPICS COMBINED.
I've addressed this

ANGLE (and then some!) and ALWAYS based my answers ON
You have written me
ENDLESSLY about "losing" Salvation, and I've patiently read
and answered letter, after letter, after letter...
And yet every two
weeks, LIKE CLOCKWORK, you feel compelled to write some
stupid email feeling sorry
for yourself, DOUBTING Jesus' power to save you, and
wanting me to CONVINCE YOU - all over again - that He
has ETERNALLY saved you.
WHY should I CONTINUE TO
WASTE my valuable time?
that I say, do, or teach, no amount of reasoning, or
quoting Scripture, will do the job.
WHAT YOU NEED TO DO is
shut the hell up and LISTEN!!!
Get ALONE with God and your
Bible somewhere, where there are no distractions or
interruptions, seek Jesus
with ALL your heart, humble yourself before Him and
tell Him flat-out "Lord, I WANT TO believe, I got THIS
PROBLEM about DOUBTING my salvation (or whatever else it
may be) and I need help".
Then SHUT YOUR BIG TRAP and
Be quiet before the
Lord. And LISTEN.
Take your eyes OFF OF YOU and
your misery and PUT THEM ON
FOCUS ON Him. On His
Goodness. His Greatness. His NEVER ENDING Love.
Ask Jesus and His Holy
Spirit to REVEAL the Truth (Himself) about your question. And
LISTEN some more.

that I do, say or write EVER WILL.
2. The OVERNIGHT "expert"
One day this
individual is writing FILLED WITH FEAR about "losing
salvation", and THE VERY NEXT
DAY (who says "miracles" have ceased?) they're
offering "expert" comments on eschatology.
You're NOT EVEN SURE
YOU'RE SAVED, but you
SUDDENLY feel qualified to TEACH ME about biblical
3. The SELF-CENTERED,
INCONSIDERATE IDIOT who THINKS THE WHOLE WORLD REVOLVES
AROUND HIM (or HER)
Apparently, he or she
THINKS that we sit here day after day yawning,
bored, and twiddling our thumbs, with NOTHING BETTER TO
DO, than read their (or a third party's) prophetic
"theories" and/or "timelines" then comment and/or CORRECT
Do you realize this
is a SELF-SUPPORTED ministry?
That NO ONE here gets paid or
derives ANY MATERIAL BENEFIT?
NOT OBLIGATED TO DO ANYTHING FOR ANYONE?
Someone wrote a while back asking us to watch some YouTube
video and comment.
We politely replied
that I don't have time to do that, that
I AM NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR WHAT THEY CHOOSE TO WATCH, and
that if I complied with such requests, I
wouldn't have time to DO ANYTHING ELSE, let alone
provide these daily teachings.
He kept writing back
and insisting, practically BEGGING
me to make "an exception" because he REALLY WANTED SO BADLY
TO KNOW THE TRUTH and had
watched the video himself 5 TIMES.
I thought "oh, what
the heck..." thinking it was AT MOST a 10 or 15 minute
It was TWO
creep, ACTUALLY THOUGHT I would take TWO
PRECIOUS HOURS OF MY TIME TO WATCH THE PIECE OF CRAP HE
CHOSE TO WATCH, then do a blow-by-blow critique, which
would take ANOTHER HOUR.
You CANNOT IMAGINE how
many things GET DONE around here IN ONE HOUR, let alone TWO
I can't begin to tell
you HOW OFFENSIVE that
attitude is to someone like me who GIVES and GIVES and
GIVES...has MANY TIMES literally FALLEN ASLEEP from
TOTAL EXHAUSTION, right in front of the computer, until my
head hit the desktop and woke me up.
Wanna hear THE
END of that story?
When I replied:
"Two hours? You gotta
be kidding! But SINCE YOU'VE WATCHED THE VIDEO 5 TIMES and
want answers so badly, why DON'T YOU WRITE DOWN the basic
points made in the video and send them to me, and I will
write back with my comments"?
That was THE
LAST I ever heard from that lying creep who "wanted SO
BADLY" to know the truth.
4. The "FEELINGS RULE"
I just did a two-part
prophecy update recently that provided some NEW,
Bible-based insight about WHAT would happen on which
In Part One, I gave THE
WHAT. In Part Two, I gave THE
No sooner had Part One
been posted, we were getting bombarded with
theories based on feelings, hunches, opinions, conjecture
and unbiblical musings.
I mean, they
COULDN'T EVEN WAIT and READ Part Two, consider the VERY
SOLID, BIBLICAL reasons for the teaching, and then (maybe,
or maybe NOT) provide some BIBLE-BASED feedback.
I spill my guts out,
the result of endless hours of Bible study, meditation and
communing with the Spirit...
I write a
line-upon-line, precept-upon-precept, scholarly and TOTALLY
SCRIPTURAL teaching, and you
expect me to DISRESPECT God and His Holy Word and REPLACE
THEM with your feelings, opinions, conjectures and HUNCHES?
I mean, really, WHO
THE HELL do
some of you think you are?
I DON'T DO HUNCHES, Bubba!
If you're a
NEW believer in Christ, by God's Grace WE'RE
ALWAYS HERE FOR YOU.
If you're and OLD
Christian, or just an OLD
fool, SHUT UP and LISTEN.
THINK BEFORE you
write. Or DON'T EXPECT an answer.
WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 5,
that Messiah MUST be descendant of King David, from the
tribe of Judah (Isaiah 11:1; Jeremiah 23:5).
9:24-27, which explicitly states that Messiah would
APPEAR AND DIE PRIOR TO the second temple's destruction, traditional
Judaism believes that Messiah is
yet to appear for the first time.
speaking, if Messiah's appearance is
strictly a future event, that never before happened, it
presents TWO HUGE PROBLEMS for Judaism:
records proving one's ancestry were kept for centuries
in the second temple.
That is, until
wicked Herod came along, destroyed those records, and
then forged his own family tree in order to establish his
alleged descent from King David.
Whatever survived Herod's
Machiavellian scheme was destroyed in 70 A.D. when the
Romans decimated and burned the Second Temple, razing
Jerusalem to the ground.
Therefore, WHOEVER the
purported "future" Messiah may be, he's
gonna have one hell of a time proving his ancestry.
2. But EVEN
IF he could prove descent from David's lineage, which
in itself is a HUGE "if", THAT
STILL WOULDN'T BE ENOUGH.
The reason: God
PUT A CURSE ON PART OF David's lineage and promised that NO
ONE from THAT PART of David's family would EVER AGAIN sit
on his throne, thus making it EXTREMELY DIFFICULT TO
QUALIFY as "potential Messiah":
"Thus says the LORD,
Write (record) this man down as childless, a man that shall
not prosper in his days: FOR
NO MAN OF HIS DESCENDANTS SHALL PROSPER, OR SIT UPON THE
THRONE OF David, Or RULE ANY MORE in Judah" (Jeremiah
God uttered those
words against Jehoiakim, king of Judah and his son, with
almost an identical name, Jehoiachin, also called Coniah
(elsewhere in Jeremiah), and Jeconiah in the New Testament.
particular part of David's lineage CANNOT produce the
You mean that Judah's
ROYAL LINEAGE is CURSED, came to an abrupt halt, and
NO FUTURE KING or Messiah can come from it EVER AGAIN?
then CAN BE the Messiah?
and NO ONE else.
That's why the Brit
Hadasha (New Testament) gives TWO
different genealogies for the TRUE Messiah.
The first is found in
the first chapter of Matthew's Gospel and shows Jesus'
ancestry from King David through Jeconiah (the cursed
guy) and through Jesus'
Thus, Jesus would be
LEGALLY descended from
David's royal dynasty, but "the curse" would not apply to
Him, since Joseph ISN'T his natural father.
That is also PART OF
THE REASON why Jesus' Virgin Birth is SUPREMELY important
and ABSOLUTELY ESSENTIAL. We've given the other reasons in
The second genealogy
is given in the Gospel of Luke 3:23-38:
This genealogy shows Jesus'
lineage all the way back to Adam, son of God, and to God
the Father Himself.
The genealogy in Luke
is through Jesus' natural
From Abraham to David,
it's essentially the same as Matthew's.
David to the first century A.D. it's RADICALLY different.
Jesus' Davidic lineage
through Mary does not come
through King Solomon, but from David's son Nathan (1
Chronicles 3:5), thus TOTALLY

descendants, while STILL tracing his lineage back to

Son "the seed OF THE WOMAN" in
Since women have no
"seed" (semen to impregnate) THAT
clearly POINTS TO His VIRGIN birth, prophesied by Isaiah.
I'm sure that our
Jewish friends would quickly resort to passages in the
Talmud that CLAIM that Jeconiah repented of his sins, that
God forgave him, and REVOKED the curse on him and his
That, however, is
NOWHERE found in SCRIPTURE.
The Talmud IS
NOT DIVINELY inspired. Scripture IS.
The Talmud is a
compilation of oral tradition, opinion, conjecture, myth
and fantastic tales that are often nonsensical and
The Talmud has
generated nothing but DEAD religion, with millions of
followers steeped in rituals they don't even understand,
engaging in occultism and who SPECIALIZE IN STRAINING OUT
GNATS and SWALLOWING entire CAMELS.
The Talmud CAN
NEVER and will NEVER OVERRIDE the written Word of God.
The Talmud, therefore,
while being a useful tool to understand Jewish thought,
culture and tradition DOES
NOT REMOTELY COMPARE TO the Holy Bible.
Had God, in fact,
revoked His decree, He would
have informed us OF SUCH IMPORTANT and CONSEQUENTIAL
REVERSAL, IN THE BIBLE.
His decree, therefore,
against Coniah and his descendants, STILL
Zechariah 12:10-14, written
400 plus years BEFORE Jesus was born, and before the
Gospels were written, specifically mentions the
families of Nathan (the son of David), and
Shimei (a Levite priest), BOTH OF WHOM are
ancestors of Jesus through Mary (Luke 3:26, 31),
WEEPING in Jerusalem for the One whom they "pierced".
They will weep and
lament for Him (Messiah) as they did for King Josiah
(Lamentations chapter 5) when he was wounded in battle
against Pharaoh Necho and died at Hadad-rimmon in Megiddo
(2 Kings 23:29; 2 Chronicles 35:20-25).
WHOEVER your "future" candidate for Messiah may be...
If he can PROVE he's
BIBLICALLY qualified, YOU CAN HAVE HIM.
TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 4,
JUST LIKE SATAN
We usually think of
"original sin" as what took place with Adam and Eve in the
Garden of Eden.
That is true as
far as mankind is concerned.
ORIGINATED long before that, with Satan the father of
The Bible refers to
THAT "ORIGINAL - ORIGINAL"
sin as "the mystery of iniquity" or "mystery of
lawlessness" (Ezekiel 28:15; 2 Thessalonians 2:7).
I can almost hear some
legalists jumping RIGHT THIS SECOND: "see?
It was LAWLESSNESS. That's why we must KEEP THE LAW (Torah)
in order to be saved!"
No so fast.
Since sin originated
with Satan, let's
see which of the "10 Commandments" Satan broke:
Did he have "other
Gods" BEFORE Yahweh?
wasn't that stupid. He knew and knows there's NO OTHER God.
Did Satan use God's
Name in vain?
Did he make himself an
Did he fail to observe the
Did he dishonor father
NO. Although he's
murdered plenty of times AFTER his
ORIGINAL sin, but that wasn't it. (John 8:44).
He does that, too: but
that WASN'T what got him kicked out of heaven the first
time (John 10:10).
Bear false witness
He's a liar, and the
father of lies. But that
wasn't THE SIN he originally committed (John 8:44).
Yes. But even that sin
came after HE FAILED TO TRUST
Satan, as we can see,
DID NOT get in trouble because of breaking the 613
commandments, or by breaking the 10 Commandments, at
least NOT THE ONES SOME OF YOU IDOLIZE, MAGNIFY and THINK
ARE MOST IMPORTANT.
Jesus told us WHAT THE TWO
MOST IMPORTANT COMMANDMENTS ARE: to love God with ALL
our hearts and to love our neighbor as ourselves (Matthew
Neither one IS PART OF the 10
Repeat: Jesus told us that
THE TWO GREATEST COMMANDMENTS are:
To love God (Matthew
To love neighbor as
ourselves (Matthew 22:39)
NEITHER of the two is
listed among the 10 Commandments.
of you need to REVISE YOUR PRIORITIES to line up WITH WHAT
JESUS SAID, not with WHAT YOUR DENOMINATION or
denomination's founder said.
Satan's ORIGINAL sin was LACK
OF FAITH (trust) in God.
Since faith works by
love (Galatians 5:6), love and faith go hand in hand. He
had NO FAITH and hence NO LOVE and, consequently, NO GOD in
him (1 John 4:16).
Satan coveted God's
Throne (Isaiah 14:13-14).
He was the "anointed
cherub" that covered God's Throne (Ezekiel 28:14).
He had doubtlessly witnessed
God's Divine Love, Goodness, mercy and generosity COUNTLESS
And yet, HE
DIDN'T TRUST God.
That's what made him
decide to GET WHAT HE WANTED BY
HIS OWN effort, by HIS OWN WORKS.
Satan's sin was
essentially THE SAME as Eve's, which
she committed LONG BEFORE the Law or the 10 Commandments
were given or even KNOWN:
LACK OF TRUST (lack of
faith in God).
He could have simply
ASKED God for what he wanted, and
TRUSTED God's GOODNESS (Grace) to grant his wish.
He could have simply
said: Almighty God, I have a genuine and legitimate desire
to be LIKE YOU.
Could you please MAKE
ME like Yourself?
Could I please sit
with you on your Throne?
After all, God
will BY GRACE allow true born-again believers, WHO TRUST
HIM, to sit ON HIS THRONE (Revelation 3:21).
He could have and
would have DONE THE SAME FOR SATAN, had the creep TRUSTED
But HE DIDN'T.
He CHOSE, instead, TO
PROCURE God-likeness THROUGH HIS OWN WORKS.
Listen up, legalists:
You do THE SAME as Satan.
You THINK that
YOUR OWN WORKS will get you to heaven, or at least
"HELP" get you to heaven.
That's why you're
When you try to get something
BY YOUR OWN EFFORT OR MERIT, you are SHOWING that you DO
NOT TRUST God.
You can call yourself
"Christian" until your lying face turns blue, green and
KNOWS you're lying, JUST LIKE SATAN.
Unless you REPENT, receive
Christ into YOUR HEART and FULLY TRUST His finished Work of
Redemption to save you,
you're headed for the lake of fire, along with your
illegitimate daddy (Matthew 25:41).
UNTIL you do that,
you're NOT children of God (John 8:44), but
"OF YOUR FATHER THE DEVIL".
MONDAY, FEBRUARY 3,
INTERVIEW WITH JESUS
WWJS - We've
"interviewed" Peter, James, John and Paul. But WHAT WOULD JESUS
HIMSELF SAY about some of
the issues often debated and which often divide
All answers are given in
Jesus' own words from the Gospels and Book of Revelation:
Lord Jesus... WHAT AN
HONOR to be able to chat with you and ask questions that
many of your followers would ask.
Thank you for saving
us, for your perfect Sacrifice which REMOVED ALL SIN FOR

sustaining the universe, to talk with us. Glory to you

See here! Or, see there! For, behold, the
kingdom of God is WITHIN YOU" (Luke 17:21).
can someone ENTER the Kingdom of God?
"Truly, truly, I say
to you, EXCEPT A MAN BE BORN AGAIN, HE
CANNOT SEE the Kingdom of God" (John 3:3).
"Truly, truly, I say
to you, EXCEPT A MAN BE BORN of
water and of the Spirit,HE
CANNOT ENTER into the kingdom of God (John 3:5).
4. Can ANYONE enter God's
Kingdom if they're born again?
"God so loved the
world that he gave his only begotten Son, THAT
WHOEVER BELIEVES IN HIM should not perish, but have
sent not the Son into the world to condemn the world; BUT
THAT THE WORLD SHOULD BE SAVED THROUGH HIM" (John 3:16-
5. Lord Jesus, WHAT
ROCK is your Church founded on?
"Whoever shall fall ON
THIS STONE shall be broken: but on
whomever it shall fall, IT WILL GRIND HIM TO POWDER" (Matthew
6. WHERE did you tell the
disciples you would establish
"I send the promise of
my Father upon you: but STAY
IN THE CITY OF Jerusalem, until you are endued with power
from on high" (Luke 24:49).
7. Lord, how do you
feel about religious tradition?
VAIN DO THEY WORSHIP ME, TEACHING FOR DOCTRINES THE
TRADITIONS OF MEN... Making
the word of God OF NO EFFECT through tradition" (Mark
8. When you commanded Peter
to "feed your sheep", WERE YOU REFERRING TO Romans (or
"I was sent ONLY
TO the lost sheep of Israel" (Matthew 15:24).
"DON'T GO TO THE
GENTILES or the Samaritans, but ONLY
TO the lost SHEEP of the House of Israel" (Matthew
9. Let's talk about
the rich young ruler. He
claimed to have kept "all the commandments" since
childhood. Was he telling the truth?
"Did not Moses give
you the law, and yet NONE OF
YOU KEEPS the law?" (John 7:19).
10. Did all his alleged
"commandment keeping make him righteous?
"No one is good--except God
ALONE" (Mark 10:18).
11. So you were telling him
that, DESPITE his claim to "keep all the commandments", he
"NO ONE IS GOOD--except God
12. Can GOOD WORKS
"The Pharisee stood
and prayed...God, I thank you, THAT I AM NOT AS OTHER MEN
ARE, extortionists, unjust, adulterers, or even as this
publican. I FAST TWICE A
WEEK, I GIVE TITHES OF ALL THAT I POSSESS.
And the publican,
standing afar off, would not lift up so much as his eyes to
heaven, but smote on 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 exalts himself shall be abased; and HE THAT
HUMBLES HIMSELF SHALL BE EXALTED" (Luke 18:11-14).
"Many will say to me
in that day, Lord, Lord, HAVE
WE NOT PROPHESIED in your name? And in your name HAVE
CAST OUT DEVILS? And in your name DONE
MANY WONDERFUL WORKS? And then will I profess to them, I
NEVER KNEW YOU: depart from me, you that WORK iniquity"
13. Did you COMPLETELY
FULFILL the Law?
"Do not think that I
have come to abolish the Law or the Prophets; I
have not come to abolish them BUT TO FULFILL THEM" (Matthew
14. When you spoke
about "eating your flesh" and "drinking your blood" in
order to have eternal life DID
YOU MEAN partaking of MATERIAL bread and wine, or did
you mean partaking
SPIRITUALLY by RECEIVING YOU, YOUR Spirit Substance, and
your Holy Spirit into our spirit?
"IT IS THE SPIRIT THAT GIVES
LIFE; the flesh profits nothing: the
words that I speak unto you, THEY
ARE SPIRIT, AND THEY ARE LIFE" (John 6:63).
15. Is there ANY sin you
won't forgive and that your supremely precious Blood won't
"Therefore I tell
you, EVERY SIN AND BLASPHEMY
WILL BE FORGIVEN PEOPLE, but the blasphemy against the
Spirit will not be forgiven (Matthew 12:31).
16. How is someone saved?
is baptized SHALL BE SAVED" (Mark
17. Is faith (trust in you)
ALL it takes?
"Truly, truly, I say
to you, He that hears my
word, AND BELIEVES on him that sent me, HAS EVERLASTING
LIFE, AND SHALL NOT COME INTO CONDEMNATION; BUT IS PASSED
FROM DEATH TO LIFE" (John 5:24).
"For this is the will
of my Father: that EVERYONE
who sees The Son AND TRUSTS IN HIM shall have ETERNAL LIFE, and
I shall raise him in the last day (John 6:40)."
18. How can I be
filled with your Holy Spirit?
"If you... being evil,
know how to give good gifts to
your children: HOW MUCH MORE
shall your heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to them
THAT ASK HIM?" (Luke 11:13)
19. Can someone get
saved, then lose his salvation?
"I give to them ETERNAL
LIFE; and they shall never perish, NEITHER
SHALL ANY MAN PLUCK THEM OUT OF MY HAND.
My Father, who gave them
to Me, IS GREATER THAN ALL;
AND NO ONE is able to snatch them out of my Father's
hand...." (John 10:28-29).
20. Can you
ABSOLUTELY GUARANTEE those who receive you into their
innermost being, and TRUST
YOU with all their hearts to save them, that
they will be eternally saved?
"I AM the resurrection, and
the life: he that believes in me, though
he were dead, yet shall he live" (John 11:25).
21. Will your Church go
through the tribulation?

ready WENT IN WITH HIM to the wedding banquet. And the door
was shut" (Matthew 25:10).
"But be on the alert
at all times, praying that
YOU MAY HAVE THE INWARD STRENGTH TO ESCAPE ALL THESE
THINGS that are about to take place, and to stand
before the Son of Man." (Luke 21:36)

there any final words you wish to leave with us at this

And some (praise God!)
But there are many who
CLAIM to "believe in Jesus", CLAIM to "be Christian" but, IF
THEY'RE HONEST ABOUT IT, when push comes to shove their
religion COMES FIRST.
Religion (whether it's

Jesus didn't come to

RELATIONSHIP with God.
He came to

He came to, once
again, MANIFEST God in man.
This will happen when we're raptured (Romans 8:19).
Religion SEEKS TO MAKE
people righteous AND FAILS.

anyone eternal life, because religion is dead.

Religion CAN'T SAVE
ANYONE because ALL RELIGION is headed for EXTINCTION.
Jesus' very Name means

Himself, those who serve two

"And he (Jesus) said to
her: Your sins are forgiven... and He said to the woman: YOUR

Religion, on the other
hand, offers nothing but BAD news.
Jesus had been invited
to dine at a Pharisee's home and this
woman who was A WELL KNOWN SINNER (prostitute) kneels
beside him, weeping, and she washes Jesus' feet with her
tears, and wipes them with her hair. She also poured some
costly perfume on them.
The SINFUL woman, whose sins
"were many" (Luke 7:49) was told by Jesus Himself that
her sins were forgiven.
But the Lord didn't
stop there. He TOOK IT UP ANOTHER NOTCH (glory to the One
and only Savior forever!) and told the sinful woman:
YOUR FAITH has saved you.
He said, clear as
crystal, THAT HER FAITH - and
NOTHING ELSE - had saved that woman DESPITE her "many
Funny thing: Jesus
NEVER SAID THAT about the Pharisee.
NEVER TOLD the Pharisee (who had invited Him to
dinner) that HE was
Pharisee who was CIRCUMCISED, studied the Torah, claimed
(as many do today) to "keep the law" and "observe the 10
Commandments" and "congregate on Saturday" and follow
dietary laws (kashrut), etc. etc. was OFFENDED that
Jesus would allow SUCH SINFUL WOMAN to
even go near Him.
Imagine THE SHOCK his
legalistic mind got when Jesus not only declared the
woman's many sins FORGIVEN, but that SHE WAS SAVED.
in spite of all the "righteousness" HE THOUGHT he had,
despite ALL his alleged "law keeping" and "commandment
keeping", and Sabbath keeping, despite all his "good
standing" in the community and WITH HIS RELIGIOUS SECT, Jesus
didn't even COMPLIMENT him, let alone declare him saved.
That SINFUL woman NEVER
claimed to keep the Law,the 10 Commandments, observe the
Sabbath, be a "good person", do "good deeds" or be
SAVIOR HIMSELF declared her SAVED.
It doesn't get any
better, or surer, than THAT.
No, we're NOT
promoting sin. We're NOT encouraging ANYONE to break the
law, or break the 10 Commandments.
What we are saying is
that DOING ALL OF THE things
that RELIGION considers "righteous" HAS NEVER SAVED A
SINGLE SOUL, AND WON'T SAVE YOU:
You can't find A SINGLE verse
from Genesis to Revelation that says "keeping the 10
Commandments has saved you", or "observing the Law has
saved you" or "being circumcised in the flesh has saved
you" or "CONGREGATING ON SATURDAY has saved you", or
"following Ellen G. White's doctrine BLINDLY has saved you"
or "believing everything H.W. Armstrong taught has saved
