WHO'S YOUR GIANT?
In the Book of Numbers
chapters 13 and 14 we have the account of the Israelites
approaching the Land of Promise, after being LIBERATED FROM
SLAVERY in Egypt.
God tells Moses to
send a representative from each of the 12 tribes to explore
the land and report back on what they saw.
When the 12 spies
returned, Caleb from the tribe of Judah said:
"Let us go up at once,
and possess it; for we are well able to conquer it"
He and Joshua, from
the tribe of Ephraim, TRUSTED
God, that He would deliver Canaan into their hands.
The OTHER 10 spies,
however, said JUST THE OPPOSITE:
"We CAN'T attack
those people; they are
stronger than we are."
And they spread among
the Israelites AN EVIL REPORT about the land they had
They said, "The land
we explored devours those living in it. ALL THE PEOPLE WE
SAW THERE ARE OF GREAT SIZE. And
there we saw THE GIANTS, the descendants of Anak... WE
SEEMED LIKE GRASSHOPPERS IN OUR OWN EYES, and we looked the
same way to them" (Numbers 13:21-33).
Even though God had
supernaturally protected and provided for them time and
Even after He'd send
plague upon plague on the Egyptians while the Hebrews were
Even after He opened
the Red Sea so they could cross ON DRY GROUND...
Even after He drowned
the pursuing Egyptian army IN THAT SAME SEA...
Even after He'd
descended mightily upon Mount Sinai on Pentecost and gave
them His Law...
Even after He'd led
them with a cloud by day and a pillar of fire by night...
Even after He'd fed
them with manna from heaven day after day, where
they did not have to work, plow, plant, harvest, or cook...
They had MORE TRUST in the
power of Canaanites and giants to kill them THAN in God to
SAVE THEM and GIVE THEM the Land He promised.
In the following
chapter we read that, upon hearing this evil report, all
the people cried and wept the whole night, saying they
wished they had died in Egypt or in the desert. They
questioned why God had brought them there to die and for
their wives and children to become prey to their enemies (Numbers
They threatened to
stone Moses and Aaron (Numbers 14:10).
They wanted to replace
Moses with another leader that would take them back TO THE
SLAVERY OF EGYPT from which God had so marvelously
Had God NOT
intervened, they WOULD HAVE killed
Moses and gone back to BEING SLAVES (Numbers 14:4).
God was VERY
DISPLEASED and said that they
would NEITHER SEE NOR ENTER the Promised Land.
Because of their
DISTRUST (unbelief), they
would wander in the desert for 40 years.
Their carcasses would
fall and die in the desert and, instead, their
children, whom they feared God COULD NOT save from their
enemies, WOULD ENTER and enjoy the Land of Promise
are MILLIONS of self-professed "Christians", who HAVE
BEEN DELIVERED FROM SLAVERY TO THE LAW by Jesus Christ, ONCE
AND FOR ALL.
He has purchased
COMPLETE REDEMPTION AND ETERNAL LIFE FOR THEM, with His
magnificently precious Blood.
And yet, these
so-called "Christians" DESPISE the Blood of Jesus, DESPISE
His atonement, DESPISE His death on the cross, His
Resurrection and Ascension, and WANT
TO GO BACK INTO SLAVERY (Galatians 5:1).
Just like that wicked
and UNBELIEVING generation of old TRUSTED
EGYPT more than they trusted THE GOD WHO'D DELIVERED
THEM FROM slavery, we have
millions of "Christians" today WHO PLACE MORE TRUST in
their purported "observance" of the Law (Torah), or the Ten
Commandments, than they trust Christ (Galatians 5:4).
They believe that their
denomination HAS MORE POWER TO SAVE than the Blood of
They believe that their
observance of a TEMPORARY, 24-hour shadow called Saturday
has MORE POWER TO SAVE than Jesus Himself.
They believe the
Torah or the 10 Commandments HAVE MORE POWER to GET THEM
INTO HEAVEN than Jesus' pure, sinless Blood.
They have MORE
FAITH in "THEIR OWN" IMAGINED "righteousness" than in
Jesus' REAL and PERFECT RIGHTEOUSNESS.
Therefore, like that
wicked, FAITHLESS and perverse generation of old, who
wanted to replace Moses and APPOINT SOMEONE ELSE to
LEAD THEM BACK TO SLAVERY IN EGYPT, they've APPOINTED
THEMSELVES NEW "LEADERS" to bring them back into SLAVERY
(bondage) to the Law:
Leaders like William
Campbell, Helen G. White, Joseph Smith, Charles T. Russell,
and H.W. Armstrong.
And God is saying to
their followers "REPENT".
He is saying "PUT
YOUR FAITH ENTIRELY on Jesus, TRUST HIM ALONE for
Salvation, and YOU WILL SEE AND ENTER the Promised Land".
But if you PERSIST in
returning TO THE SLAVERY OF THE LAW, as that evil
generation wanted to return to the SLAVERY OF EGYPT, YOU
WILL DIE, YOUR CARCASSES WILL FALL everywhere DURING THE
COMING TRIBULATION, AND YOU WILL NEVER SEE NOR ENTER
heaven (Hebrews 3:19).
I don't care WHAT
"good" Christians you claim to be.
Those who have ears,
let them hear what the Spirit says to the "churches".

OF THE FAITH

altogether on his sufferings; BEWARE

SUFFICIENT FOR SALVATION." John
In the 14th century,
150 years before Martin Luther, God raised John Wycliffe,
who some consider THE GREATEST among the reformers.
Martin Luther's reliance
on Scripture alone was not a novel idea.
A fact not well known
in Christian circles is that even before Luther, there had
already been a long line of Bible believers, who
opposed false doctrine that was NOT based on God's written
John Wycliffe stands
tall among them and is often called the Morning Star of the
Reformation because he was
THE FIRST PERSON to publicly prefer the Word of God ABOVE
the dictates of religious despots in Rome.
He was a prominent
theologian at Oxford University in England, from which he
was expelled in 1381 for his criticism of the religious
institution in Rome.
He was THE
FIRST TO TRANSLATE the Bible into English in 1382-84 and
his eponymous translation, known simply as Wycliffe's
Bible, is still with us today.
That fact, alone,
makes him a BIG HERO in my eyes.
His followers were
known as the Lollards.
His two most important
contributions were the teaching of Salvation BY FAITH IN
CHRIST ALONE, and that the
Church is a SPIRITUAL body of believers and NOT a religious
Wycliffe, like Luther
after him, also denounced the
sale of indulgences and the corrupt system into which the
religion of Rome had deteriorated.
He wrote many books
and tracts exposing that corruption and calling for reform.
His teachings cost him
his position at Oxford, temporary imprisonment, and
His fate, like that of
most who were branded "heretics" by the religious
establishment, would have been much worse, had he lived
longer, and had he not enjoyed great favor with the British
court and Parliament.
influenced many others, most notably John Hus.
Wycliffe died of a
stroke on December 28, 1384, shortly
after completing his English translation of the Bible.
On May 4, 1415 the
Council of Constance declared
Wycliffe a heretic and banned his writings.
They would have never
bothered to make such declaration had Wycliffe's teachings
NOT impacted the consciousness of many believers who
earnestly sought Truth.
Their religious hatred
could not forgive Wycliffe for preaching the Truth, and not
compromising God's Word.
They didn't just ban
his writings they also decreed THEY SHOULD BE BURNED.
Not satisfied with his death
30 years earlier, they also decreed that his corpse be
exhumed, and then burnt to ashes.

Pope Martin V's command.

Jesus knows where
every particle of Wycliffe's mortal body is and will raise
him in a glorious, immortal body when He appears.
It's those who
condemned and vilified Wycliffe who are in hell today.
Despite being banned
by religious decree, his teachings have influenced many
generations of TRUE Christians.
We are the
beneficiaries of his spiritual convictions, his public
stand for Truth, and his single handed opposition to the
totalitarian religious hierarchy of his day.
We thank Jesus for causing
His Light to shine in the midst of medieval darkness.
And we honor John
Wycliffe and his enduring legacy to the Church at large.
Wycliffe's works, and
his stalwart, resolute stand for the Gospel, were not in

desert was UNABLE TO enter the Promised Land, these
people won't enter the Kingdom of God, but WILL DIE in
their sin and GO TO HELL (Numbers 32:13; Deuteronomy

by King David as the capital of Israel, over 3,000 years

over and over that Jerusalem is the
city in which God chose to "put His Name" (Psalm

To the "you can lose

pitiful "Savior" that He needs THE HELP OF MORTAL SINNERS

Thank God that even

that antagonistic email, I
TOTALLY believe in Divine Healing.
What I DON'T BELIEVE
IN is FAKE healings !
Jesus performed many
healings. He never had anyone run back and forth on a
platform as these scam artists do.
He never had them
dramatically "get up from a wheelchair", then push their
own wheelchair around, as these clowns do.
Wheelchairs can be
easily bought or rented, and those cheap actors and
actresses who "miraculously" get cured, were
not healed at all.
They, in fact, COULD
WALK all along! It was all pretend,
staged for TV baloney.
Jesus never had them
cover up one eye and follow them around the platform as
these shameless buffoons do, to "prove" that the OTHER
formerly "blind" eye can now "see".
He never declared
someone "healed" of a deadly disease ONLY TO HAVE THAT
PERSON DIE two months later, AS THESE IMPOSTORS regularly
Of course, the only
part of the story you'll see on Kristian TV is when the
person was declared "healed".
They will NEVER follow
up and say, "you know what? That person we showed you on
that particular program died
a month later".
So much for

SENSATIONALIZE his Miracles, because they were REAL.

HEROES OF THE FAITH

blithely unaware of their spiritual heritage.
They haven't got a
clue about Church history, and what
it took to bring the written Word and the Message of the
Word Incarnate (Jesus) to each of us who are saved.
Most of our heroes,

to obscurity, mentioned only in some dusty manuscript,
hidden in some remote library in Europe or the Middle East.

POPE IN "PALESTINE"
There has never been a
country or State named Palestine.
There will never be a
country or State named Palestine.
There's always been
bad blood between Rome and Jews.
It was the Empire of
Rome that temporarily named THE REGION Syria-Palestina in a
deliberate attempt to further humiliate Jews in the
aftermath of the failed Bar Kokhba Revolt (132-136 A.D.).
Emperor Hadrian, who's
been burning in hell for the past 1,800 years, tried to
eradicate both Judaism and Christianity, and chose the
Latinized name Palestina after the ancient Philistines, who
were considered Israel's most hated and persistent enemies.
only natural that a religious institution based in Rome,
and CREATED BY Rome in the fourth century A.D., would
be antagonistic toward Jews and sympathetic toward Arab
While the Vatican has
insisted that the Pope's visit to the Holy Land is
"religious, not political", one would have to be extremely
naive to think that there is no political agenda behind it.
In fact, the Vatican
already recognized the "State of Palestine" at the United
Nations in 2012.
If THAT'S NOT
political, if visiting a so-called "Palestinian refugee
camp" isn't political, and if CALLING FOR A SOVEREIGN STATE
named Palestine on what has been Israel for the past 3,500
years ISN'T "political", then WHAT IS?
If you're new to this
website, I am not
anti-Catholic. Far from it, since I was raised in a
Roman Catholic home.
I love Roman Catholics. It's
RELIGION that I hate.
Vatican Secretary of
State Pietro Parolin has announced, ahead of the Pope's
visit, that "the Pope is going to a
particularly suffering land".
He wasn't talking
He was referring to
those "poor" Palestinians whose hatred for Jews is so
INTENSE and SATANIC that they regularly blow themselves up
in public places, just so they can kill or maim ANY Jews in
Of course, Francis
isn't expected to say A WORD about their acts of terror and
Those will be ignored
and conveniently swept under the red carpet that will
welcome him into occupied Israel.
But I sincerely hope
that won't be the case with
the plight of many Arab Christians, most of them Roman
Catholics or Eastern Orthodox, who have systematically
been threatened, persecuted and killed in Gaza, and other
areas occupied by those "good, decent and peace loving"
The suffering of these
Christians was TOTALLY IGNORED by both John Paul II, and
Benedict XVI, during their respective visits.
They chose, instead,
to COMPLETELY OVERLOOK OPPRESSION OF Christians and voice
their support for "suffering Palestinians".
As head of Roman Catholicism,
it's the Pope's DUTY to AT LEAST defend and protect HIS OWN
It's HIS DUTY to
EXPOSE the hatred and violence that's been perpetrated
against HIS FELLOW ROMAN CATHOLICS.
I pray that
God gives him the courage to do so.
Israel, I wish Francis would read the third chapter of
Joel, where the Messiah will
EXILE and RELOCATE EVERY SO-CALLED "Palestinian" OUT OF
ISRAEL and into Saudi Arabia, where there's PLENTY OF ROOM
for them to dwell among OTHER ARABS.
One last thing: some
rabbis are claiming that the Pope intends to define himself
as the "Che Guevara of the Palestinians".
As much as I dislike
the Vatican's steadfast support of Arab terrorists who
occupy parts of Israel (that's what most so-called
"Palestinians" really are) to compare Francis with Che
Guevara on the basis that they're both Argentine is a bit
Che Guevara was
ATHEIST, COMMUNIST, and a HATE-FILLED, BLOOD-THIRSTY,
COLD-BLOODED CRIMINAL who murdered thousands of civilians
without so much as a trial.
Francis, to my
knowledge, hasn't murdered anyone.
And, to his credit, he
has taken steps toward reconciliation with other Christians
and implemented some much-needed reforms.
He has also shown LOTS
OF COURAGE by his decision to drive through the West Bank
not in the traditional bullet proof Pope mobile but in an
open top car, so he can greet "well-wishers".
THAT, any way you look
at it, TAKES GUTS.
I, for one, will pray
for Divine protection (he'll need it) and
that he is equally as brave in DENOUNCING and CALLING FOR
AN END to atrocities perpetrated against Roman Catholics
and OTHER Christians in what he calls "Palestine".

Whether you CHOOSE TO
RECEIVE Jesus and His forgiveness is a different story.
That DECISION is yours,
and yours alone.
I'm talking to a whole
bunch of people today WHO NEED TO FORGIVE GOD.
They may not openly
admit it, but they're HOLDING A GRUDGE AGAINST God.
They consciously or
subconsciously BLAME GOD for some mishap, something in
their lives that has gone awry, the loss of something or
someone, mistakes they've made that ended up "costing"
them, or certain experiences that have left them
emotionally and mentally scarred.
It's easy, in the
natural, to get angry at God.
After all, He IS God.
He has ALL POWER in
every realm and is ultimately IN TOTAL CHARGE of the

Even Jesus, in His
humanity, as He hung on the cross, became SIN (EVIL) ITSELF
FOR US, killed sin in His own body, and PAID IN FULL the
penalty for our rebellion, felt compelled to shout:
"My God, My God, WHY...
have you forsaken me?"
I don't have all the
answers, but I know that IN LARGE PART God allows evil
because He gave man free will to do as he chose on this

mankind and everything under his dominion (the earth,
nature, the animal kingdom) into sin and spiritual
We've been living with
the disastrous consequences ever since.
Technically, God being
All Mighty, COULD step in and say "that's it! I gave you
all free will and now I'm taking it away".
"Look at the total
mess that you've made!"
But... if He did
that, He'd be CONTRADICTING
Himself (i.e., lying).
God CAN'T lie.
That is why, in His
Infinite Wisdom, and KNOWING IN ADVANCE that man and
mankind would screw things up, He
only gave us dominion over this planet in "time".
That "time" is ABOUT
The Good News is that
in His "time" (the Millennium and ETERNITY) it's
THE MEEK that will inherit the earth (Matthew 5:5).
Even BETTER News is
that Jesus has eradicated
evil, that He will RENOVATE this planet, and will establish
A PERFECT ORDER during that Kingdom on earth Era (Acts
3:21; Revelation 21;5).
He has promised that
this nightmarish earthly experience,all the evil and
suffering we've experienced, will
be TOTALLY FORGOTTEN.
Completely ERASED FROM
our consciousness... Like it
never even happened... (Isaiah 65:17; Revelation 21:4).
We all need to forgive God.
Then, we need to ask His forgiveness for placing ALL THE
BLAME ON Him,and NOT ACCEPTING ANY personal responsibility
for the ungodly chaos we've made.
We need to
TRUST HIM, that NO
MATTER what it FEELS LIKE, or LOOKS LIKE right now, He
has THIS WHOLE THING UNDER CONTROL, and will

facing, CLING TO JESUS with
everything you've got.
Don't LET GO OF HIM, EVER,
for ANY reason.
He IS WORTH every crappy
thing you may have to endure for A LITTLE while longer.
And Jesus has
promised to PERSONALLY wipe
ALL TEARS from our eyes (Revelation 7:17; 21:4).

where THE CONTEXT CLEARLY INDICATES it's to be taken
UNLESS THE CONTEXT
UNEQUIVOCALLY indicates it's a metaphor, Scripture
is to be taken LITERALLY, WORD FOR WORD.
When Isaiah 63 or
Revelation 19 say that Jesus "treads the wine press of
Almighty God", does that mean that Jesus WILL ACTUALLY
STOMP GRAPES ON AN ACTUAL WINE PRESS?
Of course not!
THE CONTEXT clearly
indicates it's a metaphor, since it says that He "trampled
the people in His fury" and that THEIR BLOOD "stained His
He is merely
indicating that He WILL CRUSH His enemies at Armageddon,
LIKE a person would crush grapes under his/her feet.
Just like grape juice
(blood of grapes) flows down a real wine press, their blood
will run down the Kidron Valley when that happens.
Revelation 13:2 describes "the beast" (Antichrist) having
"7 heads and 10 horns", does that mean the Antichrist will
be A REAL 7-HEADED MONSTER that will come out of the abyss?
We are told elsewhere
in Scripture that he is A MAN.
We are also given THE
MEANING that the 7 heads and 10 horns symbolize ELSEWHERE
in Scripture (Revelation 17:8-10).
UNLESS SUCH SYMBOLISM
is used and CLEARLY DEFINED AS SUCH, it's
not an allegory, IT'S LITERAL.
Most doctrinal error
is the result of people who have foolishly and arrogantly
tried to "super spiritualize" what Scripture says, or
allegorize what God ACTUALLY said.
When do this, we
can MAKE the Bible "say" nearly ANY THING our VAIN AND
CORRUPT IMAGINATION WANTS IT to say.
That, however, DOES
NOT MAKE our "interpretation" TRUE.
God's written Word
repeatedly warns of the dire and terminal consequences of
ADDING OR SUBTRACTING to it (Deuteronomy 12:32; Proverbs
30:6; Revelation 22:18-19).
It's one thing to make
AN HONEST, UNINTENTIONAL mistake because we are, after all,
It's ANOTHER THING to
do so INTENTIONALLY, NEGLIGENTLY AND/OR GRATUITOUSLY.
God's Word is to be
approached with GREAT RESPECT:
It's better to play it safe
and say "I don't know" than TO LIE, CONTRADICT ABSOLUTE
TRUTH, add, subtract, OR CHANGE WHAT the Bible SAYS.
DON'T ADD. DON'T
SUBTRACT. DON'T CHANGE.
DON'T SAY "the Bible
says" WHEN IT DOESN'T.
Revelation 21:8 ALL LIARS, who contradict ABSOLUTE Truth,
will have their part in the Lake of Fire.
I wouldn't mess with
God, or His Word, if I were you.
TUESDAY, MAY 20, 2014
If you missed
yesterday's message, we are
looking for INTERCESSORS and COMMUNICATORS.
Strong believers who
approach God's Throne of Grace in Jesus' Name, in spirit
and in Truth, and DEDICATE 15
MINUTES A DAY to intercede for:
1. ISRAEL. Or,
OF LOST SOULS, including
those trapped in false religions, satanic cults, the
occult, and so-called "Christian" cults. Or,
the Good News to
ONE UNSAVED individual. Make him or her your "project" and
determine, by the Grace of God, to BRING THAT ONE SOUL to
Salvation and PERSONAL KNOWLEDGE OF Jesus Christ between
now and the Rapture.
We don't want you to do all
three, JUST ONE.
Choose whichever one
the Spirit leads you to do, and ONLY IF the Spirit leads
We want you to FOCUS ON THAT
ONE thing and GIVE IT "ALL YOU'VE GOT" for 15 minutes a day
from now until Jesus appears.
Intercession is AN
ART, not a science.
Therefore, we must do
it IN SPIRIT and allow the Holy Spirit TOTAL FREEDOM to
move, use us, guide us, pray the perfect will of God
through us, and HAVE HIS WAY WITH US.
Having said that, here
are the GENERAL INSTRUCTIONS:
Pray for our Jewish
brothers and sisters to know their Messiah and experience
Pray Divine Wisdom for
Israel's leaders, Prime Minister Netanyahu in particular.
For protection of Israel and
Jews throughout the world now and in the coming days.
Plead the Blood of
Messiah over His Chosen People.
2. Salvation of the UNSAVED:
Pray for Muslims,
Hindus, Buddhists, Kabbalists, New Agers, Satanists,
Scientologists, Hare Krishnas, Moonies, Jehovah's
Witnesses, Adventists, Christian Science, Mormons, those
who HAVE RELIGION BUT DON'T KNOW CHRIST, and ALL UNSAVED
SOULS to experience Jesus
personally and be born-again of the Spirit.
Pray that God in His
Mercy will shine the Light of His Gospel of Grace and FREE
SALVATION to them.
That they may come to
know that Jesus IS THE ONLY SALVATION THERE IS, and that He
offers Himself and ETERNAL
them FREELY, in exchange for their WHOLE HEART and their
COMPLETE CONFIDENCE in Him.
Call them forth, by
the Spirit, INTO SAVING FAITH in His Holy and Highest Name.
Let's join in spirit and
agree for A HUGE, UNPRECEDENTED TIDAL WAVE of SPIRITUAL
REBIRTH TO SWEEP THE EARTH.

"After this I
looked, and there before me was A
GREAT MULTITUDE THAT NO ONE COULD COUNT, FROM EVERY NATION,
TRIBE, PEOPLE AND LANGUAGE, standing before the throne
and before the Lamb. They were wearing white robes and were
holding palm branches in their hands" (Revelation 7:9).
"MULTITUDES, MULTITUDES IN
THE VALLEY OF DECISION: FOR THE DAY OF THE LORD IS NEAR...
THE SUN AND THE MOON SHALL BE
DARKENED, AND THE STARS SHALL WITHDRAW THEIR SHINING.
The LORD also shall
roar out of Zion, and utter his voice from Jerusalem; and THE
HEAVENS AND THE EARTH SHALL SHAKE: but the LORD will be
the hope of his people, and the strength of the children of
Israel" (Joel 3:14-16).
Today I'm going to ask
SOMETHING OF YOU.
As many of you know,
we have ministered to MANY, MANY, MANY THOUSANDS for over a
decade (glory to Jesus!).
To God be the glory,
in all that time we have NEVER asked anyone to donate,
we've never solicited or bothered anyone, or tried to sell
anyone anything. Matter of fact, we have turned away, with
our sincere thanks, many who have VOLUNTARILY offered to
The only time this
ministry mentions money is to warn the sheep about the many
greedy wolves in sheep's clothing who fleece them with
false promises of "prosperity", "blessings" and "answered
prayer" if you SEND THEM money.
If you came to know
Jesus through this ministry, if you've been delivered from
a cult, if you've been nourished spiritually, if it has
made you stronger in the faith, if you've requested free
materials and received them free of charge and postage
paid, if we have been there for you in your hour of need,
if we have provided timely answers, or helped you in any
way, I'm going to ask ONE THING of you, and it DOES NOT
All I want is 15
MINUTES OF YOUR TIME EACH

Here's what I'm asking
you to do during those 15 minutes each day (CHOOSE ONLY

2. Intercede for lost
souls, including those trapped in false religions, satanic
cults, the occult, and "Christian" cults.
3. Pick ONE UNSAVED
individual and make him/her
your "soul winning project" during the time we have
left on this earth which, I promise, is LESS THAN most
I don't want ANYONE to

whose hearts THE HOLY SPIRIT IS SPEAKING RIGHT NOW.
This request has
NOTHING WHATSOEVER TO DO WITH SALVATION. It won't affect
your Salvation IN ANY WAY, SHAPE OR FORM.
If you KNOW JESUS,
you're saved REGARDLESS of how you act outwardly.
If you DON'T KNOW
invite you to RECEIVE HIM INTO THE DEEPEST RECESSES OF YOUR
BEING, RIGHT NOW and be saved FOR ALL ETERNITY.
If you CHOOSE TO
participate, you must pick ONLY ONE of the three.
I don't want your attention
and energy DIVIDED. I want you TOTALLY
FOCUSED ON THAT ONE THING.
I want you to GIVE
IT "ALL YOU'VE GOT" FOR 15 MINUTES EACH DAY.
We will give proper
instructions on how to go about THE ONE ITEM YOU PICK in
There are "multitudes,
multitudes" in the VALLEY OF DECISION even as we speak.
Let's help them OUT OF
THE VALLEY and into the Kingdom of God's dear Son: the
ONE AND ONLY Savior who IS, WAS, and EVER WILL BE.
Body of Christ, the
"finish line" is CLEARLY VISIBLE now, and straight ahead.
Let's not squander the time we have left on this earth.
What LITTLE time we
have left will seem to go by A LOT FASTER if we're doing
something, in spirit, for Christ and others.
If you're not doing
anything for Christ, it will seem "endless".
Yes, there will be a
"great multitude THAT NO ONE CAN NUMBER" standing before
God's Throne REGARDLESS of what we do...
Let's make that MULTITUDE,
even GREATER and MORE INNUMERABLE for Jesus' glory.
What do you say,
brothers and sisters?
Is Jesus WORTH 15
minutes of your time?
No need to write in.
Jesus knows who you are. We will give instructions
for each group in coming days. Thank you.

In Matthew 20:1-16,
Jesus tells the parable of the WORKERS.
He compares the
Kingdom of God to the owner of a vineyard, who goes
out early in the morning to hire workers.
He agrees to pay
them a certain sum for a day's work.
Then he goes out
again, three hours later, and hires
some more workers. Three hours after that, he
hires even more.
THE 11TH HOUR, WHEN THERE'S HARDLY ANY WORK LEFT, he hires
When evening came, He
paid EXACTLY THE SAME WAGES TO THOSE WHO'D WORKED FOR ONLY
ONE HOUR as TO THOSE WHO'D WORKED SINCE 6 A.M.
In fact He
paid the LAST WORKERS FIRST, and the first workers
(those who'd toiled since 6 a.m.) last.
The first workers then
complained that they should have received more than the
last workers, since they had WORKED a lot longer AND
But the owner of the
vineyard told them (PARAPHRASING) "hey,
didn't I pay you what you agreed to work for? What business
of yours is it if I WANT TO pay these last guys the same as
you guys? It's my money. I can do with it, whatever I want.
YOU'RE JUST UPSET BECAUSE I'M GOOD".
The first WORKERS are
an allegory for those who try
to EARN THEIR WAY into the Kingdom thru WORKS. They
THINK they're more "deserving", and "entitled" to "more
pay" ("MORE SALVATION") because they've borne the "burden
and heat" of the day.
They THINK keeping the
law and the 10 commandments, and going to a building they
INCORRECTLY call "church" on Saturday, will
get them Salvation and a better place in the Kingdom.
unequivocally stated THAT WASN'T THE CASE: Those WHO HARDLY
DID ANYTHING, WHO
SIMPLY TRUSTED (HAD FAITH IN) THE OWNER'S WORD, AND HIS
UNDESERVED GOODNESS TOWARD THEM,
got paid the same, AND GOT
THEIR PAY FIRST, which means they ENTERED INTO THE KINGDOM AHEAD
Then, the Lord makes
the astounding statement "the
last shall be first, and the first shall be last: for
many are CALLED, but few are CHOSEN".
God didn't call his
children to toil and labor for the Kingdom; He
called them, and CHOSE THEM, to REST IN HIM.
The TRUE SABBATH, according
to Hebrews 4:10, is CEASING
FROM OUR OWN WORKS, and TRUSTING JESUS' FINISHED WORK OF
SALVATION ON OUR BEHALF.
It's resting in Him,
and WHAT HE DID for us.
THAT REST is what the
Old Testament Sabbath was merely a shadow of: It's
what the 24-hour Sabbath REPRESENTED [Colossians 2:16-17].
Salvation is NOT what WE DO,
it's WHAT HE DID.
ONLY WHAT HE DID will
get us into heaven.
Here's Jesus' personal
invitation to ALL "workers":
STOP WORKING FOR SALVATION:
Cease from YOUR OWN WORKS, and TRUST (have faith in)
His finished Work.
unto me, ALL
YOU who WORK and are HEAVY LADEN, and I
WILL GIVE YOU REST" [Matthew
All "WORKERS" would do
well to heed Jesus' Words.

WHO'S THAT STUPID ?
One question that's
come up lately is: who'll be stupid enough to take
Antichrist's mark during the coming tribulation.
Most people have heard
that there's an Antichrist that will show up soon, but
they've never taken the time to CHECK OUT WHAT THE BIBLE
(God) says about this individual or about those who'll
This is especially
true of the younger generation who has gotten their
eschatology from YouTube.
It's easy to see why
there already are HALF A MILLION websites, and A QUARTER OF
A MILLION videos, presenting Pope Francis as the Antichrist
and another 4 MILLION claiming it's President Obama.
They hear something
about this person requiring his followers to take a mark on
(or in) the right hand or forehead, that taking his mark
will damn a soul for all eternity, and think: WHO'D BE THAT
Well, for starters, those
who DO NOT believe in Christ will take Antichrist's mark.
Unless, BY THE START
OF THE TRIBULATION, and by the Grace of God, they
somehow repent and receive Christ into their hearts, they
will remain on earth for the coming tribulation.
Those who remain
during the tribulation will, at some point, be REQUIRED to
take the mark in order to buy
Rejecting the mark
will mean either being beheaded, or having to hide and UNABLE
TO buy food, water, medicines, and other BASIC
When people are faced with
the choice of taking the mark, or STARVING TO DEATH, it
won't be an easy choice.
majority of those who reject the mark will go hungry,
thirsty, sick, and die.
The rest will undergo extreme
hardship and will need every ounce of ingenuity and
resourcefulness in order to survive.
in THE MAIN REASON that God gives THE SIGNS of a huge
quake, the sun turning black, the moon blood-red, millions
of stars falling, etc., AS THE TRIBULATION BEGINS, in order
to give these people ONE FINAL OPPORTUNITY to call on Jesus
BEFORE all hell breaks loose on earth.
That is also why He,
in His great mercy, SENDS A SPECIAL MESSENGER ANGEL through
the sky TO WARN EVERYONE ON
the terminal and irreversible consequences of taking the
BEFORE that system is implemented (Revelation 14:9-11).
All of which begs the
question: WHO'D BE STUPID ENOUGH to reject Jesus when they
see those awesome signs and SEE HIM APPEARING IN THE CLOUDS
in great power and glory?
Believe it or not,
many will turn to Him during those final moments, but there
will also be many WHO WILL STILL REJECT HIM and, as
Revelation 12:15-16 tell us, will RUN AND HIDE under rocks
and in caves.
Throughout the Book of
Revelation we see, that THE
MORE God's judgments intensify, THE MORE that certain
people harden their hearts and remain ADAMANT in their
rejection of Christ.
At one point, in
Revelation 16:2-10, when they're scorched by the sun,
covered with painful blisters, and there's NO WATER TO
DRINK, they chew their own tongues from the pain, AND STILL
Gee, Martel, it's hard
to believe there are people like that around...
You should sit where I
sit for a day or two.
That would open your
eyes in a hurry.
There already are
people putting Jesus down and touting Alexander as the
"true" son of god.
Many have berated me
for saying that "their hero" Alexander is the infamous
And I've ALREADY had
others flat-out tell me that if they had to choose between
Jesus and Alexander, they would choose the latter.
I pray that God will
be merciful to their deceived souls and SOME LIGHT OF TRUTH
will get through.
2:11-12 leaves no doubt that God (who KNOWS what's in each
individual heart) will send many of these people STRONG
He will do this
INTENTIONALLY so that they will be damned (2 Thessalonians
Our heavenly Father is
exceedingly gracious and merciful.
For those who
seek Him and honor Him,
His mercy ENDURES FOREVER (Psalms 106:1).
Praise His marvelous
But for those who
steadfastly REJECT HIM, He will only extend Grace and
Mercy TO A POINT (Genesis 6:3).
BLASPHEMED His Holy Spirit by persistently rejecting
Christ, those who KEEP REJECTING His Grace by NOT trusting
Him, whom God in His FOREKNOWLEDGE KNOWS will continue
rejecting Him, NO MATTER WHAT, are those on whom SUCH
STRONG DELUSION will fall (Matthew 12:31-32).
They're the ones who'll
reject Jesus UNDER ANY AND ALL CIRCUMSTANCES.
Who will support and
blindly follow Alex when they SEE HIM risen from the dead.
Since he, like Jesus,
will also appear risen, and he's the greatest tactician and
military hero IN HISTORY, they will see in him their
"golden opportunity" to topple Jesus, and replace Him with
a "god" made in the corrupt image of their own corrupt
minds: the son of Satan incarnate.
And, make no mistake,
they WILL BE DAMNED and spend eternity in the lake of fire
(Matthew 25:41; Revelation 14:9-11).
The earth will be
greatly depopulated during that time through Rapture,
judgments and persecution (Isaiah 13:12).
The Bible makes it
clear that there will be SOME tribulation survivors who
refuse the mark, but they will be VERY FEW.
Those who REJECT
Antichrist and survive will be judged by Jesus ACCORDING TO
THEIR TREATMENT of natural and spiritual Israelites (those
who put their faith in Jesus during the tribulation, Joel
Some will go straight
into the lake of fire, along with Alexander and Judas.
Those who showed
kindness toward natural and spiritual Israel, will get to
populate the earth during the Millennium.

couldn't be clearer:
We OVERCOME SATAN by the
Blood of the Lamb (which was ALREADY SHED), by THE WORD
of our testimony (sharing Christ with others), and NOT
LOVING our temporal earthly lives unto the death.
ALL that Christians
are told to do in the New Testament with regards to Satan
and satanic forces is TO PREACH
ON THE VICTORY THAT JESUS ALREADY WON, AND ENFORCE
THAT VICTORY IN HIS EXALTED NAME.
When Alexander won the
deciding battle at Gaugamela did he send Parmenio TO
RE-FIGHT the war?
NO. It was A DONE
They were the victors.
All they had to do was ENFORCE that victory.
All of Persia HAD TO submit
to Alexander's rule.
When Julius Caesar
conquered Gaul, did he command his legions to go back and
re-fight the Gallic wars?
They had ALREADY
gained control of the territory up to the English Channel
and the Rhine. It was THEIRS.
All they had to do
was ENFORCE their victory and
keep all THEIR SUBJECTS, yes,
I said "SUBJECTS", IN
And those were MORTAL
Why DO STUPID,
FAITHLESS Christians insist ON RE-FIGHTING and
RE-CONQUERING what Jesus HAS
Hypocrites! If you REALLY
CARED about defeating Satan YOU'D
BE OUT THERE PREACHING THE GOSPEL, WITNESSING TO OTHERS, telling
them how wonderful Jesus is, and
delivering them from Satan's clutches, instead of pointing
Dear God!!! Don't
these losers have ANYTHING BETTER TO DO?
Why DON'T YOU BRING
SOME LOST SOUL to Christ, instead of criticizing those

can be, and often are, wrong.
KNOWLEDGE, on the
other hand, is ALWAYS RIGHT:
KNOWLEDGE is CERTAIN.
Belief can come from a
number of sources: from what others, religion included,
have taught us.
From what we've read,
that seemed pretty convincing at the time.
From what we've heard
that SOUNDED good.
From what others have
shared based ON THEIR belief.

In Him (Jesus) are
hidden ALL THE TREASURES OF Wisdom and Knowledge
KNOWLEDGE comes from KNOWING
In the biblical sense,
We KNOW Him, when we
RECEIVE Him into our hearts and allow Him to penetrate THE
DEEPEST RECESSES OF OUR BEING.
I must warn you,
though, experiencing Jesus YOURSELF - not what OTHERS say
about Him - is HIGHLY ADDICTIVE:
Those who KNOW Jesus
CAN NEVER GET ENOUGH OF Him:
The more and the
deeper we EXPERIENCE HIM, the MORE WE WANT.
I have to wonder if
those who constantly surf the web in search of the latest
"I believe", some religious novelty to tickle their fickle
hearts and ears, or some vacuous form of religious
"entertainment", REALLY KNOW JESUS.
Those who only
"believe in" Jesus can potentially be convinced NOT TO
believe in Him.
They can be persuaded
TO CHANGE THEIR BELIEFS.
Those who KNOW Jesus can
never leave Him nor forsake Him.
Show me a person who
"used to be" Christian, then SWITCHED TO traditional
Judaism, Islam or some other "belief" and I'll show you a
person WHO NEVER KNEW Jesus.
All they had was "belief".
All they had was DEAD
They just changed FROM
ONE DEAD RELIGION TO ANOTHER. (Pause & meditate).
That's why those
precious apostles and martyrs in the Early Church endured
persecution, untold hardship, and even torture and death,
rather than forsake Jesus.
Their FAITH was not
based on "hearsay".
They HAD EXPERIENCED Christ
THEMSELVES, PERSONALLY and INTIMATELY.

Is it HARD to

ALL forms of religion,
including Christian denominations, were
INVENTED by humans.
Jesus ISN'T religion.
Jesus is A
And although He lives
IN those who are born again (hard to believe by the way we
act sometimes), we still do
not manifest His Perfection, hence we will all fail you and
disappoint you at some point.
Jesus is THE ONLY ONE who

ONLY ONE you can ALWAYS count on.
ONLY ONE who will never disappoint you or fail to meet

that He is eternal, having

You can side

Or you can RECEIVE
the Winner, INVITE HIM INTO YOUR HEART, have
all those bad experiences and memories ERASED, all
your sins FORGIVEN, and ENJOY A BRILLIANT WONDER-FILLED
DESTINY FOR ALL ETERNITY.
Simon Peter had a big
mouth which often got him in trouble, but even he realized
that - even when he didn't

THERE'S SIMPLY NOWHERE ELSE TO GO.

MONDAY, MAY 12, 2014
I know I tend to be
tough on most believers because I just can't stand how
religion has distorted Truth and spawned spiritual
weaklings. I think our precious Jesus DESERVES BETTER.
However, there are
times to expose deception and there are times to inspire.
I want to inspire and
encourage you today.
If you know Jesus you
have a FANTASTIC DESTINY that lies JUST AHEAD.
If you don't
know Jesus, YOU DON'T KNOW WHAT YOU'RE MISSING!
I INVITE YOU TO RECEIVE
HIM TODAY, RIGHT NOW, INTO YOUR HEART AND LIFE.
You'll be thanking Him
No matter WHAT you're
facing, no matter WHAT situation you may find yourself in, no
matter HOW circumstances may LOOK, and NO MATTER WHAT
"OTHERS" MAY SAY OR THINK...
If you're a believer, YOU
NEED TO REJOICE AND PRAISE JESUS EVERY SINGLE DAY.
You need to THANK HIM
for the marvelous Destiny He has in store FOR YOU.
Whatever this earthly
existence may have brought, REMEMBER IT'S
If you are born-again,
if Jesus LIVES IN you by His Holy Spirit, all
your struggles AND ALL SUFFERING for you WILL SOON BE OVER.
As in FOREVER.
Our God and Savior
made us some wonderful promises and He
will keep His Word.
How do we know?
Because He has ALWAYS kept
Glory to Him from
everlasting to everlasting! Amen.
One of the reasons
that I so love the Word, both the Incarnate and the written
Word, and Bible prophecy, is that there
are over 2,000 promises our God made that have been
fulfilled PRECISELY and in painstaking detail.
We have a "more sure
Word of Prophecy" that WE CAN
ABSOLUTELY, 100% COUNT ON (2 Peter 1:19).

Which is another way
of saying: JESUS, JESUS,

ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the
things which God HAS PREPARED FOR THEM THAT LOVE HIM.
But God HAS

As Paul put it in
"For I consider that
the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be
compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us...the
manifestation (REVELATION, UNVEILING) of the sons of God".
So, hang in there.
For Christians, the
"finish line" lies just ahead.
This nightmarish existence IS
TEMPORARY and about to END.
Glory to Jesus! Glory
to Jesus! Glory to Jesus!
Your REAL Life, which
never ends, will begin SOONER

THE FIRST PREACHERS
We know from the
Gospels that Jesus had 12 main disciples, plus 70 which He
sent to preach, two by two, plus thousands of followers.
His disciples could
only preach that the Kingdom of God was "near". They
couldn't preach that His Kingdom had "come" until Jesus'
Resurrection had taken place.
The Kingdom OF A DEAD
KING can't ever "come". The
Kingdom can only "come" into our hearts when the King
Himself is ALIVE.
Do you know who
were THE FIRST TO PREACH that His Kingdom had come?
Do you know who
were THE FIRST to ANNOUNCE (PREACH) His Resurrection?
Not Peter, John, or
James. Not any of the other apostles or disciples. Not any
Pharisee, Sadducee, or member of the Sanhedrin. Not
Nicodemus or Joseph of Arimathea.
The first to proclaim His
Resurrection, the first to announce that His Kingdom had
indeed "come", WERE WOMEN.
It was women who came
very early Sunday morning, while it was still dark, to the
empty tomb (John 20:1).
It was women who
announced His Resurrection TO
the disciples (Luke 24:10; John 20:2).
And we all know WHEN
WOMEN FIND OUT about SOMETHING WONDERFUL..., be it a dress
on sale, a new pair of shoes, or a great place to get a
facial, THEY'RE GOING TO TELL
THE WHOLE WORLD is going
Jesus is no fool. He
KNEW what He was doing.
It took religion 400 years to
BECOME "SMARTER THAN JESUS" and BAN WOMEN from preaching.
If it wasn't for Mary
Magdalene, Joanna, Mary the mother of James, and other
women who followed His ministry, the disciples wouldn't
have known that He rose.
Peter and John wouldn't have
gone running to the tomb, only to find it empty, with
the linen cloth (Shroud of Turin) which had wrapped His
body just lying there, and the large handkerchief (Sudarium
of Oviedo) around His Face, neatly folded next to the
Shroud itself (John 20:6-7).
When I hear all the
debate within various denominations as to whether there
should be women priests, women pastors, or women ministers,
it makes me cringe.
Jesus DIDN'T HAVE ANY PROBLEM
with women preaching His Message.
Religious hierarchy must
think they're BETTER than Jesus.
unbelievably stupid. If women had been allowed to preach
and evangelize EVERYONE -
in THE WHOLE WORLD - WOULD HAVE HEARD THE GOSPEL BY NOW.
What better time,
then, to honor women than on Mother's Day?
Ladies, don't let any
stuffy, spiritually stagnant, old RELIGIOUS curmudgeon (or
even a young one) tell you THAT YOUR PHYSICAL GENDER
prevents you, or disqualifies you, from preaching the Good
That is an unbiblical
lie, from the devil himself.
Fact is, the Church is FULL
of INSECURE religious misogynists WHO WANT YOU TO GIVE THEM
YOUR MONEY, but KEEP YOUR MOUTHS SHUT.
But NOT my Jesus!
Jesus LOVES YOU, and values
your witness and your ministry as much as ANY man's.
When you win a soul to
Christ, that person is JUST AS SAVED as if he or she had
heard the Gospel from Peter, Paul, or even from Jesus
away, sisters! Your SPIRIT is neither male nor female.

STOP THE PITY PARTY !
Every once in a while
I hear from Christians who are at their wits end.
They feel TOTALLY
They feel they "can't
go on any longer".
They have sunk deep
into depression, often to the point of being suicidal.
They don't even live.
Their existence has
turned into a rut where all they do is get up, eat, go to
the bathroom, do drugs, go to sleep.
Only to go through the
same vicious cycle the next day, and
the next, and the next...
They feel USELESS and
that their lives have NO PURPOSE.
And every email they
send is all about "poor me", "woe is me":
"I've no friends, no
family, I WANT JESUS TO COME ASAP SO I CAN ESCAPE THIS
It's not that I'm
insensitive. It's not that I can't sympathize.
not that I haven't been where some of these people are.
It's not like I do not
counsel or pray for these individuals and give them USEFUL,
But let me tell you what they
ALL have in common:
They are TOTALLY
They are SO
WRAPPED UP IN THEMSELVES that they think it's ALL about
"me, me, me, me, me, me, me, me, me and ME".
It's ALL about Him, Him, Him,
Him, Him, Him, Him and Him!
"Him" meaning JESUS.
The reason they feel
"useless" and that their life HAS NO PURPOSE is that
THEY'RE NOT DOING ANYTHING FOR ANYONE.
REASON they feel "useless" and that their life HAS NO
PURPOSE is that THEY'RE NOT
DOING ANYTHING FOR ANYONE.
wouldn't feel SO BADLY if they were busy HELPING AND
Serving Jesus and
helping others is THERAPEUTIC.
If nothing else it
helps us forget about our own problems.
They need to take
their eyes OFF THEMSELVES and focus ON JESUS.
Ask Jesus (IN EARNEST,
FROM YOUR HEART) what He would have you do in the time we
may have left on this earth.
He never said to sit
around smoking pot, doing drugs and feeling sorry for
ourselves. He said TO OCCUPY
UNTIL He comes (Luke 19:13).
My God, with Mother's
Day and Father's Day coming up, there are HUNDREDS of local
nursing homes where elderly people would just love to get a
visit from someone!
These poor folk who
feel forgotten would love to have someone show a little
interest in them, talk to them for a while, ask them what
they like, watch a little TV with them, or read them a book
(great way to introduce them to the Bible, preferably the
New Testament), bring them some cookies, or chocolates, or
a few flowers, fluff their pillows, ask them how they
You think that life
stinks and that it's dealt you A LEMON...
You complain about
WHAT YOU'VE BEEN
WHAT ABOUT JESUS?
To take off His glory
and come to sinful world, full of stupid, selfish,
SIN-INFECTED, UNGRATEFUL MORTALS, and then to
be criticized and unappreciated, SAVAGELY LASHED, MOCKED,
SLAPPED, SPIT ON, AND CRUCIFIED.
Give me a freaking
Anything any of us may have
been through is A PICNIC, A WALK IN THE PARK, compared to
what our precious Lord endured!
Get busy SERVING Jesus and
OTHERS, even if it means volunteering at a local soup
I guarantee you won't
feel "useless", OR WITHOUT PURPOSE, any more.
You've COME TOO FAR to
throw in the towel.
You have TOO MUCH TO
No matter WHAT this
TEMPORARY life looks like, you
have a GLORIOUS Destiny JUST AHEAD!
We are THE
PRIVILEGED GENERATION that gets to SEE Jesus reappear and
take us Home ALIVE!
Man, I wouldn't MISS
THAT for the world!
How pitiful it would
be for you TO MISS THAT MOST
BLESSED EVENT because YOU COULDN'T TRUST JESUS for another
day, week, month or year!
Spend all those HOURS thinking
ABOUT Him, not yourself!
Put your eyes on Jesus
and DO SOMETHING FOR your fellow man, and I promise the
"pity party" WILL END.

SPIRITUAL WARFARE -
All that a policeman
needs to do is SAY "YOU'RE UNDER ARREST" and he has the
authority and legal right TO TAKE ANYONE into custody.
He doesn't have to call a
hundred other police officers, to enforce the arrest.
He doesn't have to
FIGHT, SHOOT, or struggle.
Why? Because he
has the City or County's AUTHORITY to do so.
Born again believers
have INFINITELY HIGHER AUTHORITY to "arrest" anyone who
steps out of line in the spirit realm (Luke 10:19;
Unfortunately, 99% of
believers don't have a clue of the spiritual authority that
is theirs BY BORN-AGAIN NATURE and DIVINE BIRTHRIGHT.
The few who try to
exercise that authority, lack the scriptural knowledge,
spiritual development, and emotional maturity to handle it.
God's Authority is
Abusing or misusing
His Authority is serious business.
It's not for spiritual
children, but for fully-grown SPIRITUAL adults.
If you don't know what
you're doing, if you're NOT THOROUGHLY CONVINCED of the
inner Christ, if you cannot AUTHORITATIVELY and
UNWAVERINGLY speak in His Name, it's better that you LEAVE
Well what about
Ephesians 6:12 "for we WRESTLE NOT"...
The word "wrestle" is
NOT FOUND in the original text.
The word pallo is
MISTRANSLATED AS "wrestle" or "struggle" in most
translations, including the KJV.
It literally says we
"throb" or we "VIBRATE" NOT AGAINST FLESH AND BLOOD, but
AGAINST PRINCIPALITIES AND POWERS.
There's NOTHING about
fighting or struggling.
Verses 11, 13 and 14
of that same chapter tell us
-- FOUR TIMES -- TO STAND against the adversary.
It would be rather
difficult, not to mention IMPOSSIBLE, to "fight" or
"wrestle" someone WHILE
YOU'RE STANDING STILL IN ONE PLACE, WITHOUT BUDGING.
Well, what about when
we intercede for others ?
Intercession is all
about requesting (praying for) God's favor and intervention
on the behalf of a specific person or people, and STANDING
AND EXERCISING your Authority in Christ on their behalf.
There's NO "WARFARE"
of any sort involved.
Well what about 1
Corinthians 10:4 "for the
WEAPONS OF OUR WARFARE..."?
The word translated
"weapons" is opla which means "tools" or
The word "war" (polemos)
is NOT FOUND in the original Greek text.
The word that IS FOUND
is strateias which means "expedition". We get the
English word "strategy" from it.
In modern English we
would say "the tools of our expedition (or strategy) are
It's the very same
word used in 1 Timothy 1:18 which tells us to "fight the
good fight of faith".
Or to carry out (the
strategy of) our earthly journey in faith.
All those who WORSHIP
the KJV translation, take note.
I use the KJV more
than any other translation, and like it a lot.
Is it ERROR FREE, as
some of you claim?
The ORIGINAL Bible
TEXT (in Hebrew, Aramaic and Greek) is error free. All
translations into modern languages like English, INCLUDING
the KJV, contain errors.
Those errors are
relatively few and relatively minor, but to claim they're
error-free is IN ERROR.
Bottom line is:
The showmen and show
women who appear on Kristian TV especially
when it's fund-raising time, fighting, rebuking and
struggling with mainly IMAGINARY "demons", are
ONLY PUTTING ON A SHOW for the benefit of the DONATING
DO NOT IMITATE those
What they do and say IS
STAGED - from beginning to end.
It has little or
NOTHING TO DO with the Bible or with TRUE New Testament
The only FIGHT in
which the New Testament tells us to engage is "the good
fight OF FAITH" (1 Timothy 1:18):
We trust (have faith in Christ's
FINISHED work), in His Holy Name we speak, and on
His Authority WE STAND.

HER WARFARE HAS ENDED, That HER SINS HAVE BEEN REMOVED"...(Isaiah
When some misguided,
feeble sheep asks about this religious cliché, this
ABOMINATION that some preachers call "spiritual warfare",
I'm usually very patient and gentle.
I don't blame the
sheep for this: I blame the so-called "shepherds".
FOR DECADES they've
taught the poor sheep to "do battle" against Satan, against
demons, and against forces of evil.
The VERY SAME Satan,
demons, and evil forces that Jesus DEFEATED - ONCE AND FOR
ALL - 2,000 YEARS AGO.
DID He defeat them, or
(Genesis 3:15; Romans
16:20; 1 Corinthians 2:8; Colossians 2:15; Hebrews 2:14).
Yet some preachers,
some supposed "shepherds", CAN'T SEEM TO MAKE UP THEIR
One moment they tell
the sheep that Satan's defeated and "under our feet", the
next they're rebuking him, binding him, shouting at him to
"get behind them", FIGHTING
him, and all kinds of (mostly imaginary) demons, and asking
OTHER CHRISTIANS to join them in their struggle.
All this conveys TWO
VERY SERIOUS and CONSEQUENTIAL ideas:
Jesus DIDN'T FINISH the job, after all (i.e., that He
ONE Christian ALONE has no authority over Satan, hence
he or she MUST CALL ON A WHOLE BUNCH of OTHER "Christians"
to join them in the "fight" and then - PERHAPS - win.
God forbid Satan
should attack ONE of you when there are NO OTHER CHRISTIANS
AROUND, what on earth are you going to do?
Suppose for a moment
that Jesus HADN'T defeated Satan and demons... Do you
honestly think you, OR A BILLION OF YOU, can do it BETTER
If He DIDN'T DEFEAT
SATAN ONCE AND FOR ALL, it would mean THAT SATAN WON!!!
If "Satan won" then we
might as well throw in the towel and forget about the
Rapture, heaven, the Second Coming, the Millennium, and all
You might as well
stick a fork in ALL OF US ‘cause we're DONE.
I know firsthand how hard it
is to overcome religious habits and wrong thinking, especially
when our minds and ears have been SATURATED AND BOMBARDED
WITH THEM for years and years.
"Warfare" means TO
FIGHT or to engage in ARMED COMBAT with someone.
Jesus as we read in
Isaiah chapter 40 above, ALREADY FOUGHT and WON.
If He already WON, if the
WARFARE for God's children HAS ENDED:
WHICH WAR DO YOU WANT TO
There is NO PLACE in
the New Testament that tells us to "fight" or do "warfare"
against Satan and evil spirits. NOT ONE!
(I'll address 2
Corinthians chapter 10 and Ephesians 6, Lord willing, in
the next message).
that the New Testament tells believers to do is STAND.
STAND FIRMLY on the
FULL ASSURANCE and TOTAL CONVICTION that Jesus gave us His
Name and His Authority.
And that at
His Name EVERY KNEE MUST BOW of things in heaven, on
earth, and even UNDER the earth (Philippians 2:10).
That includes Satan,
Satan's angels, demons, and EVERY SATANIC FORCE that

Why would A CHRISTIAN PAY for
his/her sins WHEN JESUS ALREADY SATISFIED DIVINE JUSTICE
AND PAID FOR ALL SIN FOR ALL TIME? (John 1:29; Hebrews
9:26; 10:14; 1 John 3:5).
Why would we pay for
sins THAT JESUS ALREADY PAID
For sins that Jesus ALREADY
REMOVED from us as far as the East is from the West? (Psalm
Such teaching implies
that Jesus' payment, through His shed Blood, death and
descent into hell itself, resurrection and ascension, is
INSUFFICIENT to remove sins.
That Jesus DIDN'T GET
THE JOB DONE.
If His finished Work
of Redemption was insufficient (perish the very idea), you
and I are HOPELESSLY and ETERNALLY lost.
How can sinful mortals
satisfy God ANY BETTER than the Blood of His sinless Son?
NO ONE CAN EVER FULLY, OR
EVEN PARTIALLY, "PAY FOR THEIR SINS".
THE ONLY ONE who can, and
ALREADY PAID FULLY FOR ALL YOUR SINS is Jesus Christ.
Jesus REMOVED ALL

Why would ANY BELIEVER

absent from the body IS TO BE PRESENT IN PURGATORY, and

CHINA IN PROPHECY
China is the largest
nation on earth and contains one-fourth of the world's
population. Yet precious little is said about China in
prophecy circles, and what little they do say about it IS
The MYTH that China
will send a 200-million man army to destroy one-third of
the world's population is thoroughly debunked on this
out Myth #23):
If China represents
about one-fourth of the population on earth, and they sent
an army that, according to Revelation 9:18, destroys ONE
THIRD OF MANKIND...
There would be ONLY
CHINESE PEOPLE LEFT for the Antichrist to rule over!
Jesus loves the
Chinese, just like He loves everyone else. He died and shed
His Blood for them, just as much as for Americans, Native
Americans, aborigines, Africans, or Europeans.
So, what's in China's

even one! (Psalm 53:1)

wise enough, because of his own sin, to realize that THE
ONLY RIGHTEOUSNESS there is COMES FROM God.

And, brother, there's
NOTHING MORE SOBERING and AWE-INSPIRING than realizing
it's the Lord Himself to whom we'll have to answer for what
we do, what we teach, and how we portray Him to others.
To whom much is given
of him much will be required (Luke 12:48).

RESPONSIBILITY ANYWHERE than answering DIRECTLY TO Jesus.

"GOD SPOKE TO ME"
"I FELT that the Lord
spoke to me and TOLD ME that
everyone (whether they receive Jesus or not) will
go to heaven".
Unless you repent, you
and your "feelings" are going straight to hell, Carlton
So is everyone else
whom you've DECEIVED.
"I FELT like the Lord
spoke to my heart and said homosexuality
is not sin".
Oh, yeah? You're
either DELUDED, LOST, or BOTH, Jay Bakker.
(Although I'll cut you
some, not much, but SOME,
slack for being the offspring of Jim and Tammy Faye).
THE REST BEFORE jumping to conclusions.
This ministry is
NOT anti-gay. On the contrary: I've taught many times,
and reiterate now, that Jesus
will save ANY INDIVIDUAL, ANY SINNER (and we're ALL
SINNERS): gay, bisexual, transgender, or straight, who
REALLY RECEIVES Him into his or her heart as God and
But to say that
homosexuality ISN'T sin, flat-out CONTRADICTS God.
One could just as
easily say "God spoke to me that
ADULTERY is not sin".
Or, "God spoke to me that
STEALING is not sin".
Heck, why stop there?
"God spoke to me THAT MURDER
is not sin".

that we can be saved APART

His written Word and NOW - all of a sudden - changed His
Mind, it's those who "felt"
He "spoke to them" and CONTRADICTED Himself that are lying.
ANYONE can wipe 2,000
years of Christian DOCTRINE in an instant with capricious
and RIDICULOUS CLAIMS such as these:
That's why the Bible NOWHERE
tells us we are to live by "feelings", or "experiences"
but BY WHAT GOD SAID.
In fact, that
directive came FROM JESUS'
OWN LIPS (Matthew 4:4).
Every heresy, every
hell-leading cult, CAME INTO EXISTENCE as a result of some
individual who DELIBERATELY
CHOSE to DISREGARD THE WORD OF GOD in favor of what he or
she "felt", or "experienced".
Charles Taze Russell,
Ellen White, Joseph Smith, Mary Baker Eddy, William
Campbell, and Herbert Armstrong ALL

various heretical books to "correct" Scripture.
That's why they are all in
hell today, and why those who follow these lying
"leaders", will go there,
God's INSPIRED, INERRANT,
written Word (the canon of Sacred Scripture) ended at the
close of the first century A.D. (2 Timothy 3:16; 2

ANYONE who tries to "correct"
God some 2,000 years after the fact IS A LIAR.
ALL LIARS, according
to Revelation 21:8, will have
their part IN THE LAKE OF FIRE.

directly to our hearts.

Why are there so many
divisions and misunderstanding among Christians, and SO
MUCH false teaching?
Because people - religious
people in particular - are FUNDAMENTALLY DISHONEST.
Most people DON'T
Pharisees BOASTED about keeping the law and the 10
Commandments. They bragged about having and KNOWING The
Truth (John 9:34).
When Truth APPEARED
before their eyes, not only did they REJECT HIM, they
DIDN'T EVEN RECOGNIZE Him.
At least Pontius
Pilate, a total pagan, dared
to ask "WHAT IS Truth?"(John 18:38)
But the Pharisees of
His day WERE NOT INTERESTED IN TRUTH.
Pharisees AREN'T interested, either.
When faced with THE
TRUTH, like Adam of old, they run and hide, then - as if
THAT weren't bad enough -- cover
themselves with fig leaves, to boot.

want THAT MUCH light.
We don't want you to
EXPOSE the falsehood behind the traditions we hold sacred,
LET ALONE DESTROY THEM BY SHINING GOD'S WORD ON THEM.
I see this in ministry
ALL THE TIME.
LIE THROUGH THEIR TEETH in order to cling to some dead,
decaying tradition, or to AVOID facing the Truth.
People ONLY believe
WHAT THEY WANT, and even when you PROVE - with the
Scriptures, and beyond any doubt - that their teaching is
wrong, they stubbornly cling
to it and turn angry at you for EXPOSING THOSE LIES.
Even when exposed,
they STILL WANT TO IMPOSE THEIR FALSE TEACHING ON US.
"BECAUSE I SAY SO" has
never worked with this ministry, and never will.
Hurling insults at us
because you don't like our teaching won't work, either.
ALL IT PROVES is that YOU LACK THE INTELLIGENCE to make a
cogent, biblical argument.
IF YOU WANT TO
CONVINCE ME OF ANYTHING, you'll
have to base your case on the Scriptures - without
prejudice, partiality, or distortion.
You will NEVER
convince me of ANYTHING by contradicting God.
ZERO RESPECT for those who DISRESPECT God, either by
contradicting Him, or by
turning a blind eye TO WHAT HE SAID.
That's why religion
brings BONDAGE (the very word MEANS "TO BIND"):
REFUSES TO FACE THE TRUTH WHICH SETS PEOPLE FREE (John
