SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 30,
BEFORE & AFTER
This teaching is SO
ELEMENTARY that it should be taught in every Sunday school
and Christian congregation, as well as in EVERY Bible
college, university and seminary.
Most pastors and so
called "ministers" of the Gospel seem to be CONFUSED on
preach a CONFUSING message, built on shaky sand, instead of
ON THE ROCK.
No wonder they have
produced a generation of INSECURE spiritual weaklings LACKING
FOUNDATION or CONVICTION about ANYTHING.
It's no wonder their
denominational house of cards is about to come crashing
There may be
man-invented denominations in Christendom, but
there are NONE in the Kingdom of God (Ephesians 4:5).
I'm talking about THE
DIFFERENCE - the EARTH SHAKING, Satan-crushing, liberating,
marvelous DIFFERENCE - Jesus made:
About that moment in
human history, that
ALL-IMPORTANT TURNING POINT called Calvary.
About the ETERNAL,
MONUMENTAL, PIVOTAL DIFFERENCE that
Jesus' Blood, His death, Resurrection and Ascension MADE.
And if you THINK He
DIDN'T make such difference, you're
So stop calling
yourself by His Name.
I recently heard from
a heretic who said in one breath that Jesus is "THE ONLY
Savior" (even quoted John 14:6) and in the next that "Scripture
makes it clear that ONLY THOSE WHO KEEP THE 10 COMMANDMENTS
will be saved".
I said he was
CONTRADICTING himself: If Jesus is THE
ONLY Savior, then WHY DO
WE NEED TO "KEEP" the 10 Commandments?
ARE THEY CO-SAVIORS,
along with Jesus?
If such is the case, then
HE IS NOT "THE ONLY" Savior.
He also LIED. There
is NO SCRIPTURE ANYWHERE that says that "ONLY those who
keep the 10 Commandments" will be saved.
On the contrary: there are
MANY Scriptures which say that those who TRY to be saved
that way - or ANY WAY apart from Jesus Himself - ARE LOST (Acts
4:12; Galatians 2:16; 5:4; Romans 3:28; Hebrews 6:4-6;
That's THE DIFFERENCE
between believing God and getting Truth DIRECTLY from His
Spirit and His Word, as opposed to getting
doctrine "filtered" through a denomination OR SOME
SELF-APPOINTED "prophet", "apostle", "bishop" or
whatever religious title they've appropriated for
This person was
AFFIRMING that "the Bible says" SOMETHING that IT
DOESN'T SAY AT ALL!!!
Why? Because he DIDN'T
get his doctrine from God or His Word:
He got it FILTERED
THROUGH his BIASED, WOMAN-INVENTED denomination.
Jesus made A NEW
Testament TWO THOUSAND YEARS AGO and millions of so-called
Christians STILL WANT TO LIVE UNDER the Old Testament.
They want to live as
though NOTHING'S CHANGED.
They want to live as
though Jesus' Blood, death, and Resurrection HAD MADE NO
Jesus Perfect Work of
Redemption LACKS NOTHING: It
Jesus, as a human, SATISFIED
HIS OWN LAW FOREVER on behalf of EVERY human who will TRUST
Him (Matthew 5:17):
He LIBERATED US from
bondage to the law.
He liberated us from
COMMANDMENTS, which are for SLAVES, and made
us SONS and JOINT HEIRS OF GOD'S KINGDOM WITH HIM (Romans
Sons who, IN DADDY'S
EYES, CAN DO NO WRONG,
since Daddy Himself, Righteousness Himself, the FULFILLMENT
of the law Himself, LIVES IN THEM and HAS DECLARED THEM
ETERNALLY RIGHTEOUS (Hebrews 10:14).
He FOREVER put us in
RIGHT STANDING with God, REGARDLESS of how many times we
blow it and fail in this temporary realm.
By making A NEW
Testament, Jesus rendered the Old Testament null, void and
OBSOLETE (2 Corinthians 3:14-17; Colossians 2:13-17;
Hebrews 10:9; 12:24).
REAL Christians DON'T
follow the law.
He who is both, the Law GIVER
and Law FULFILLER, PERMANENTLY LIVES IN THEM.
He, therefore, CREDITS
THEM with His own PERFECT, SINLESS Righteousness (2
REAL Christians DON'T
FOLLOW COMMANDMENTS, they simply follow the Divine Love
Nature (God) that Jesus PLACED INSIDE THEM (Romans
REAL Christians don't
"hope" they "will be saved".
We KNOW we ARE saved NOW
AND ETERNALLY (1 John 5:12).
REAL Christians DON'T
LIVE IN FEAR of "displeasing" God and "losing" Salvation because
Salvation (Jesus) CANNOT BE LOST (Romans 11:29).
REAL Christians KNOW
they possess no righteousness
of their own.
REAL Christians KNOW that
Salvation (God's Righteousness) is GIVEN TO US FREELY, AS A
GIFT (Ephesians 2:8-9; 2 Corinthians 5:21).
REAL Christians KNOW that
we DO NOT DESERVE Salvation now, never have, and never
REAL Christians DON'T
TRUST WHAT THEY DO.
REAL Christians TRUST
Jesus, and WHAT HE DID for us (Ephesians 2:8-9).
Yes, glory to Jesus,
Calvary made ALL the difference in the world.
SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 29,
WHAT THEY DIDN'T HAVE
Have you been told
that "God's true church is
the one THAT KEEPS HIS COMMANDMENTS" (meaning the 10
According to the Book
of Revelation, there are TWO
100% CERTAIN WAYS to remain here on earth during the
trusting Jesus (Revelation 6:12-17; 13:8). And,
the 10 Commandments (Revelation 12:17).
define those WHO ARE UNSAVED,
therefore NOT RAPTURED, BUT RATHER, REMAIN ON EARTH and
are persecuted viciously by Satan and his Antichrist?
They are the ones WHO "KEEP
THE COMMANDMENTS OF GOD and have THE TESTIMONY
(witness) OF JESUS".
Do you think that
"observing the 10 Commandments" or the weekly Sabbath makes
you a shoo-in for heaven?
Do you belong to A
RELIGIOUS CULT that teaches you are "the only true church"
because you're "the only ones" who keep God's 10
That you are the
"faithful remnant" because YOU CONGREGATE ON a 24-hour unit
OF FINITE TIME?
(Which is something,
by the way, NOT "COMMANDED" ANYWHERE in Scripture).
I got news for you:
You've been LIED TO.
God SAYS THE
You're NOT SAVED, and
you're NOT going in the Rapture UNLESS
you repent and TRUST Jesus ALONE for Salvation and FOR
There is NO
RIGHTEOUSNESS IN THE WHOLE UNIVERSE besides that of Jesus (Mark
If you REALLY WANT TO
be "righteous" you better
have JESUS CREDIT HIS OWN RIGHTEOUSNESS TO YOU, (2
Corinthians 5:21) FREELY, by sheer Grace, 'CAUSE
THERE'S NO OTHER RIGHTEOUSNESS, HONEY CHILD!!!
Yes, that statement
includes many natural Jews, who practice traditional
Judaism, but it also INCLUDES all the members of false
sects, all supposed
"Christians" WHO THINK THEY CAN WORM THEIR WAY INTO HEAVEN
by THEIR OWN SELF-RIGHTEOUS "commandment keeping", "Sabbath
keeping", vegetarian or kosher eating, etc. .
and "left behind" on this earth to suffer tribulation, are
THOSE WHO claim to "OBSERVE the commandments" and have the
TESTIMONY (have heard the Gospel) of Jesus.
DON'T HAVE IS FAITH
That's WHY they remain
on earth and go through the tribulation:
They know God's 10
Commandments and CLAIM to "keep them". They've heard the
Gospel. But THEY DON'T BELIEVE IT.
TRUST JESUS ENTIRELY for Salvation.
For them, Jesus
ALONE ISN'T ENOUGH.
And, like it or not, TRUST
IN JESUS is THE ONLY THING THAT RAPTURES US:
TRUSTING JESUS COMPLETELY (Ephesians
2:8-9) is THE ONLY THING THAT SAVES

numerous times throughout the day, each and every day.
nonetheless, that the United States of America and Canada
have set apart A SPECIAL DAY each year SOLELY FOR THE
PURPOSE OF giving thanks.
GIVING THANKS to God,
from our hearts, is one of the many great joys and
privileges we share as His children.
I invite you to join
me in thanking and praising our God (Father, Son and Holy
Spirit) from the very depths of our beings:

We pray for those in
authority, for President Obama and his advisers, for the
members of Congress and the Supreme Court. Also for State
and local authorities.
We ask for your Wisdom
and guidance in every decision that comes before them.
I ask you, Lord, to greatly
bless and protect every member of the Body of Christ.
We ask that
many souls the world over will come to Salvation through
personal knowledge of Jesus, and that you
add many new members to your Body on an hourly basis.
I ask SPECIAL
BLESSINGS, GRACE, SPIRITUAL GROWTH, STRENGTH, HEALTH,
WISDOM, PROSPERITY on our precious intercessors who lay
down a portion of their lives each day to witness,
intercede for lost souls and for your Chosen People.
I THANK YOU for each
and every one of them and for each precious soul that comes
to know Jesus through this ministry, or through ANY OTHER
ministry on earth.
THANK YOU, Lord, for all who
preach the true Gospel of Grace. May they continue to
do so BOLDLY, IN THE POWER OF THE SPIRIT.
For those who
don't, please bring them repentance and Salvation.
For those who
pervert the Gospel of Grace into a Gospel of Greed, we
ask your forgiveness, that they will repent, and stop
serving the false god (idol) of Mammon and realize it's
ALL about you, Lord Jesus.
We ask these things,
and offer our heartfelt
THANKS for your eternal glory. Amen.
I love you and adore
you, Jesus, with every fiber of my being. Glory to
you from everlasting to everlasting, my one and only
Savior, who died for me, and cleansed me with your Divine,
Grace and Peace to

DON'T CALL HIM
Is Jesus SUFFICIENT to save?
That is THE QUESTION that
determines if an individual is saved, or isn't.
That is the question that
EVERY TRUE BELIEVER in Jesus Christ MUST ANSWER IN THE
If you answer in the
negative, YOU'RE NOT SAVED.
If Jesus IS
sufficient, then NOTHING BUT Jesus is needed in order to be
Jesus ALONE is MORE
THAN ENOUGH to save us for ALL ETERNITY - no matter what
we've done -- and Salvation, to those who put their trust
(faith) in Him, is A DONE DEAL (Hebrews 10:14).
Salvation is 100%
CERTAIN (Hebrews 7:25).
If you ADD other
"things" to Jesus and what He did, like your own
"obedience", or your own works, Salvation is NOT certain.
If you ADD other
"things" in order to complement Jesus, in order to "help"
Him save you, then you're saying He is NOT sufficient,
WHICH MEANS YOU'RE NOT SAVED.
There is NO WAY of
getting around this Truth.
If God CAN’T save you,
all by Himself, WITHOUT needing ANYTHING ELSE, He's
not Almighty, hence He's not God.
If God IS God, if He truly is
Almighty, He can save whomever He wants, THROUGH ANY MEANS
Otherwise, He's not
If He really is God He
doesn't need your "help" in order to save you.
All He needs is YOUR
He doesn't need Law
(Torah), He doesn't need 10 Commandments, He doesn't need
"good works", He doesn't need weekly Sabbath, He doesn't
need circumcision, He doesn't need religion, He
doesn't care what you eat, and He doesn't care how you
That is why, right
after giving Moses the Law, INCLUDING THE 10 COMMANDMENTS
-- and right after the Israelites made themselves an idol
in the shape of a golden calf a mere 40 days after HEARING
God's Voice -- He tells Moses "I
will have mercy ON WHOM I WILL HAVE MERCY, and I will have
compassion ON WHOM I WILL HAVE COMPASSION" (Exodus
If you want a
definition of God's Grace, besides "goodness toward someone
who DOESN'T DESERVE IT", that verse explains it.
He will save WHOM He WILL
SAVE (Titus 3:5).
You can add
man-invented "conditions" until your confused religious
face turns Siberian blue, but God
is still God.
If He is, He
can and will save WHOEVER He wants, under WHATEVER
conditions He wants.
And the ONLY "condition" He
chose is TRUST (faith) (Ephesians 2:8-9).
If you BELIEVE Jesus
is sufficient, then you TRUST Him (have faith in Him).
Hence you are saved.
If you DON'T believe
Jesus ALONE is sufficient to save, then YOU DO NOT TRUST
JESUS, YOU HAVE NO FAITH IN Jesus, and you're lost.
It's as simple as
Stop playing religious games.
You're not fooling anyone but
Either trust Jesus completely
- and nothing / no one else for Salvation - or admit that
you DON'T trust Him.
If God is God He can
save BY FAITH ONLY.
He can't, He's not God:
If you think He
can't, then admit that you
DON'T really believe in Him and...
STOP calling Him "Almighty".
TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 25,
"And in that day
will I make Jerusalem A BURDENSOME STONE for all people:
ALL THAT BURDEN THEMSELVES WITH IT SHALL BE CUT IN
PIECES"... (Zechariah 12:3).
WHAT IS IT about
Jerusalem that incites such passion among various
It sits on a
mountainous terrain, devoid of natural resources. There's
NO MATERIAL wealth there to speak of. It has NO OIL, coal,
or natural gas.
not a sea port, has no major river, no major airport, no
agriculture or manufacturing worthy of mention, no gold,
silver, iron or copper, and even lacks the mineral
riches of the Dead Sea, some 20 miles south.
Yet MORE BLOOD HAS
BEEN SPILLED over this ONE city, than
over all other cities of the world combined.
Jerusalem has been
destroyed twice, besieged 23 times, attacked 52 times, and
captured and recaptured 44 times.
One could argue that
the fascination with this city has to do with its history,
and that is largely true, but there's more to it than that.
Other cities are also historically and culturally rich, and
they DO NOT inspire the same degree of emotion, animosity,
As Jesus Himself
pointed out, even THE PROPHETS God sent to this holy city
usually ended up dead (Matthew 23:31; Luke 13:34). He
Himself paid the ULTIMATE PRICE right on Mount Moriah, on
the VERY SPOT where Abraham offered the Lamb in place of
his son Isaac.
If its ancient stones
could speak they would tell a violent, bloody history
filled with death, suffering and destruction.
And yet, despite all
of the above, there's this almost magical quality to the
city. There's a SUPERNATURAL-NESS that can be both felt and
There's NO MIDDLE
GROUND where Jerusalem is concerned: people either totally
love it, or they totally hate it.
Jerusalem was under Arab rule
for 1,200 years (under various caliphates from 638 A.D.
to 1,099, with an 88-year period of Crusader rule from
1099-1187; then again under Muslim rule from 1187 to 1516,
and under the Ottoman Turks from 1517-1917).
For all the Arab talk
about Jerusalem being the "Palestinian capital", for all
the Islamic talk about it being the "third holiest site in
Islam", during that long,
dark, mournful period under Arab control IT WAS NOTHING BUT
AN UGLY, BARREN, DEPRESSING, UNDEVELOPED, SMELLY PLACE THAT
LACKED EVEN A SEWAGE SYSTEM.
I've seen film footage
from the early 1900's, and it speaks VOLUMES about what a
SAD PLACE it was. When Jesus
said it would be "TRAMPLED" by Gentiles (Luke 21:24), He
wasn't kidding. It was trampled and OPPRESSED.
Mark Twain's visit to
the Holy Land in 1867 (some 50 years before the British
wrested Jerusalem from the Ottoman Turks in WWI) was
described in "The Innocents Abroad". This is how he
described Jerusalem's surroundings:
"..... A DESOLATE COUNTRY
whose soil is rich enough, but IS
GIVEN OVER WHOLLY TO WEEDS... A SILENT MOURNFUL EXPANSE....
a DESOLATION.... we never saw a human being on the
whole route....HARDLY A TREE
OR SHRUB ANYWHERE. Even the olive tree and the cactus,
those fast friends of a worthless soil, had almost deserted
the country." (The Innocents Abroad, p. 361-362)
He described Jerusalem
itself this way:
"It seems to me that
all the races and colors and tongues of the earth must be
represented among the fourteen thousand souls that dwell in
WRETCHEDNESS, POVERTY AND DIRT, those signs and symbols
that indicate the presence of Muslim rule more surely than
the crescent-flag itself, ABOUND. Lepers, cripples, the
blind, and the idiotic, assail you on every hand... Jerusalem
IS MOURNFUL, AND DREARY, AND LIFELESS. I WOULD NOT DESIRE
TO LIVE HERE (The Innocents Abroad, Ch. 53,
What Muslims COULDN'T DO with
Jerusalem in 1,200 years, Jews have done in merely 47
Since Jerusalem was
recovered by Israel in 1967, it has BLOSSOMED into what it
is today: a dynamic, burgeoning metropolis AND THE ETERNAL
CAPITAL OF ISRAEL.
WHAT is it, then,
about Jerusalem that makes it SO SPECIAL?
What makes it
important enough for three major religions to LITERALLY
FIGHT over it?
Jerusalem is where the
Kingdom of God began on earth.
It's THE CITY that God
Himself CHOSE to "put His Name there"(Psalms 132:13; 1
Kings 11:36; 2 Chronicles 12:13; Ezra 6:12; Nehemiah 1:9).
even has the symbol of God's Name, the Hebrew letter shin (which
stands for God's Name, Shaddai) stamped
on its topography, showing He is the rightful owner,
and this unique city His
It's in Jerusalem where God's
OWN SACRED BLOOD was poured out to redeem mankind and the
rest of His fallen Creation.
in Jerusalem where the Kingdom of God will be
re-established after the Second Coming of Christ (Zechariah
everyone left on earth will be UNSAVED.
The UNSAVED will HATE
They will hate it and
it will become a "burdensome stone" for them, because THEY
KNOW it's in Jerusalem where the returning Christ will set
the headquarters of His Kingdom on earth just a few years
They will want to take
and occupy it AS A PREEMPTIVE MEASURE.
Since they are Christ
haters, they will capture it not out of love, but as a
DESPERATE ATTEMPT TO PREVENT Messiah's return and the
establishment of His Kingdom on earth.
They will figure that,
as long as THEY possess it, Jesus CAN'T HAVE IT.
Ha! Guess again,
Those who LOVE Jerusalem will
soon be gone:
Its spiritual children will
be raptured and its natural children will be forced
Its haters will
possess her AND OPPRESS HER for 3½ years, and for THE LAST
After that, the "GAME"
will be ALL OVER: Jerusalem will no longer be a
"burdensome stone", but the city of delight.

THE BIBLE CODE
Is there any truth to
the so-called Bible Code?
Should we rely
on Bible Codes to know the future?
There's too much
detail and accuracy in some
of the Bible Codes that have been found regarding past
events for it to be mere "coincidence".
God's Word is inexhaustible.
I'm certain that IN
ETERNITY we'll discover
multiple layers of depth, meanings and dimensions to it.
However, while we're
still IN SPACE/TIME, God gave
us THE SURFACE Bible TEXT as our instruction, NOT ANY
"SECRET CODES" that may be found in it.
I know of one website
which bases virtually all its "teaching" and predictions on
supposed Bible codes. They haven't got ANYTHING right yet.
They have predicted,
among other things, that Hillary would win the presidency
in '08 and that Philadelphia would be nuked in January '09.
In the interest of
full disclosure, I do cite
ONE Bible Code on this website, because it is amazingly
in line with the ACTUAL biblical text.
do not base the teaching on that code, but on
THE ACTUAL BIBLE TEXT verbatim.

all, with the HOLY Word of

even at equidistant intervals -- can hardly be compared
with going to a palm reader.
However, there's TOO
MUCH we still don't know or understand about such codes:
One of the great
tragedies in modern Christendom is
APPALLING LACK OF KNOWLEDGE OF SCRIPTURE. Before we
launch into a fruitless and meaningless search for some
"secret code", we should be STUDYING AND MEDITATING the

we are specifically led by the Holy Spirit, SEEKING
"secret codes" within the Bible is mostly unproductive and can
be highly misleading.
Trying to GUESS the future based
on some highly subjective "Bible code" is folly, when we
have THE LITERAL BIBLE TEXT, which 2 Peter 1:19 calls "A
MORE SURE Word of prophecy".

CULTURE OF DEATH
The Arab culture has
brought four enduring things to the world: a numeric
system, Islam, oppression and terror.
In the past two
centuries, the last three
have become virtually synonymous.
Fact: The Islamic
culture IS A CULTURE OF
VIOLENCE AND DEATH.
No matter how much
Evangelical wimps call for "dialogue", seeking to
ingratiate themselves to the secular media in order to
peddle their worthless books...
Hello, Rick Warren...
NO MATTER HOW MUCH
they promote Chrislam and Koran reading to stupid
Kristians, WHO DON'T EVEN
KNOW THEIR OWN BIBLES...
No matter how much
vote-seeking American politicians, may call it a "religion
There is NOTHING --
repeat, NOTHING - in the
Koran, or in that evil religion's tenets, that calls
for "love" or "peace" IN ANY
WAY, SHAPE OR FORM.
is NOTHING, ZERO, in Islam that calls for peace or love.
NO SUGGESTION, let alone A COMMANDMENT, to "love our
neighbor" in Islam, as there is in the Judeo-Christian
There is NOTHING
about "turning the other cheek" as in the Christian
There is NOTHING
about LOVING EVEN OUR ENEMIES, as Jesus uniquely
And you certainly can't
find ONE political, military or RELIGIOUS Islamic leader -
I don't care which terrorist group he represents - that
teaches love or peace.
MUTILATION, VIOLENCE, REVENGE... these are the things that
Islam CONSTANTLY PROMOTES (Sura 5:33; 8:12).
The Koran, in fact, CALLS
FOR THE DEATH OF ALL "INFIDELS" (Sura 8:39, 59-60).
An infidel, by
definition, is ANYONE who
does not belong to their wicked, murderous, oppressive
They BEHEAD and

"brothers" for being of another Mohammedan sect, for

think they got a chance with "dialogue"?
Koran FORBIDS THEM to even BEFRIEND infidels, meaning
"us"? (Sura 4:89)
We can't even get in one
accord with our own Christian brothers and sisters and you
think you can REASON with BARBARIC Muslim MURDERERS?
So much for media
driven so-called "church leadership".

last week -- and I mean LITERALLY BUTCHERED -- (the beasts
used a knife and a meat cleaver) 5
more Jews inside a synagogue... WHILE THEY WERE PRAYING!!!

advantage of Western democracies for years, and
infiltrated Western society in droves, including
countries like England, France, Sweden and the U.S.
As we have seen in
videos time and again, they
enjoy the freedom, education and prosperity in our nations,
ONLY TO GO BACK AND JOIN SOME RADICAL Islamic group that
murders our citizens and threatens our very existence.
That's the "thanks" we get
for welcoming the wild beasts into our COUNTRIES and for
tolerating their FALSE, EVIL religion, when THEY DON'T
TOLERATE our Jewish or Christian faith.
I see NO WESTERNERS,
except for a few very dedicated humanitarians, SEEKING "A
BETTER LIFE" in an Islamic country, DO YOU?
And even THEY (who go
there TO HELP others) are being beheaded!
clueless, DUMB, weak, compromising Westerners would suggest
"dialogue" with these barbarians.
It's high time we
call things WHAT THEY REALLY ARE:
Only a COMPLETE IDIOT
would dare call Islam "a religion of peace".
SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 22,
DID JESUS KEEP THE
Sabbath day, to keep it holy.
Six days SHALL YOU LABOR, and
do ALL YOUR WORK:
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"
Sabbatarian cults love
to say that Jesus "kept the Sabbath" and offer as example
that He often visited the Jewish synagogue on Saturday

in the fourth commandment -- the one that tells us to
"remember the Sabbath and keep it holy" -- about
congregating in a synagogue, a Christian worship center, OR

centers were INVENTED almost
2,000 years later.

heretical doctrine, the "Jesus kept the Sabbath" myth is
nothing but A BIG, FAT LIE.

ministry Jesus NEVER KEPT the

own Father, thus making Himself equal with God" (John
That verse says, clear
as daylight, that Jesus WAS

Yet for Sabbatarians
it's AS IF that verse
wasn't in the Bible.
Why? Because that
verse TOTALLY DESTROYS their lie that "Jesus kept the

their hypocritical bias.

UNTO ME (not unto a 24-hour day) and
I (not some
transient 24-hour day) WILL
GIVE YOU REST (Matthew 11:28).

THE JOY OF SALVATION
"RESTORE TO ME THE
JOY of your Salvation and uphold me with your free
Spirit" (Psalm 51:12)
This is a typical
question that we get time and again:
"I gave my heart to
Jesus, then lived in sin for a while, repented, but now
feel far from Him. What can I
do to recover that feeling of peace, joy and closeness that
I had when I first believed?"
ALL OF US have sinned
numerous times since we first received and experienced
Christ in our hearts.
NO ONE ON EARTH
(besides Jesus) has always lived in "a way that is pleasing
ALL OF US have done
wrong things and asked for forgiveness, not once but many,
The way to recover the joy of
Salvation, the peace, and SPIRITUAL INTIMACY with
Christ, is by KNOWING and being thoroughly convinced of the
1. Jesus' Salvation
is COMPLETE. It lacks NOTHING.
AWAY sin -- once and for all. That includes ALL your
sins and mine, past, present and future (John 1:29; Hebrews
9:26; 1 John 3:5).
2. SIN IS
NO LONGER YOUR PROBLEM.
Since Jesus PAID FOR
and REMOVED all sin for all time, God
is NO LONGER COUNTING any sins against us (Psalm
103:12; 2 Corinthians 5:19; Romans 4:8).
3. We REST in that
We TRUST completely WHAT
JESUS DID to save us, and FOCUS ON THAT, NOT on what we
do or have done.
We REST on the
KNOWLEDGE that Jesus LOVES US
UNCONDITIONALLY: There's NOTHING you can ever do to make
Him STOP loving you.
That may be
incomprehensible by human standards, but it's NOT by Divine
standards. God IS love, of
the DIVINE (eternal), NEVER-ENDING kind.
has FORGOTTEN ABOUT your sins, and SO
Don't let ANYONE heap
condemnation on you.
If Satan (the accuser)
EVER reminds you of "what you did", tell
him WHAT HE DID and WHERE HE'S GOING (Revelation
20:10). Reject him, slam the door on his ugly face, and DON'T
LINGER on those thoughts.
God gave you FREE
You HAVE THE POWER TO
CHOOSE on what you allow your
mind to dwell.
5. KNOW (be conscious)
that Jesus is not "out there
somewhere", nor is He 3 billion light years away "pie in
the sky", but that He LIVES IN YOU.
He is IN YOU, ALL the time, whether
you "feel" like it or not (Matthew 28:20).
Focus on Him WITHIN
YOU and WELCOME Him to manifest in you and to you.
6. DON'T SWEAT THE

MOST of what steals
our joy is "small" stuff.

you miss is THE JOY OF your

Nonetheless, the way
we regain that wonderful feeling is by:
a) GENUINELY repenting
b) seeking INTIMATE
COMMUNION with Jesus in our innermost being.
One of the great
blessings of being Christian is PRAISING God (Father, Son
and Holy Spirit) IN SPIRIT.
Because He LIVES IN
YOU, there's NO WAY you can praise Him in spirit without
lifting yourself up in the process.
As an added bonus,
spirit praise also strengthens and develops our spirit and

THE PURPOSE OF HELL
The Bible clearly
teaches that hell is a temporary place and not a final
Hell is NOT eternal.
The lake of fire is.
There are at least two
things that "Christian" cults have in common:
Jesus' TOTAL SUFFICIENCY to save us.
2. They deny
the existence of hell.
They, to put it
mildly, are in DENIAL.
DOES NOT TRUST JESUS COMPLETELY as ONLY God and Savior
WILL go to hell.
includes atheists, agnostics, and adherents to ALL heathen
RELIGIONS such as Buddhism, Hinduism, Taoism, and Islam.
However -- and it
breaks my heart to say this -- it also includes MANY
The only reason a
so-called "Christian" would go to hell is because
he or she ISN'T a REAL Christian.
He or she "believes"
in Jesus - UP TO a point.
He or she believes He
died for mankind's sins, however, they
DO NOT consider Jesus - and Jesus ALONE - SUFFICIENT to
NOT BELIEVE that He removed ALL their sins FOREVER as
far as the East is from the west (Psalm 103:12).
NOT BELIEVE that He REMOVED sin forever, and doesn't
remember our sins any more (Hebrews 9:26; 10:17).
Jesus, according to
them, "saves" PARTIALLY, but
That makes His perfect
Work of Redemption INCOMPLETE, LACKING, IMPERFECT and,
They will acknowledge
Jesus as Savior ONLY IF THEY
CAN TAKE SOME OF THE CREDIT FOR THEIR OWN SALVATION.
They want to say that
He paid for their sins, BUT
that they also EARNED their way to heaven by their good
deeds, their obedience, their (alleged) 10 Commandment
keeping, their (alleged) Torah observance, their (alleged)
Sabbath keeping, by their being baptized in water, or by
their being members of a particular denomination, and
blindly following the heretical religious leader who
founded their cult.
They have religion.
They DON'T KNOW JESUS.
They've never allowed
Him into their hearts and EXPERIENCED
His Presence in their innermost being.
That's why THEY'RE LOST.
REFUSE TO ACKNOWLEDGE their UTTER HELPLESSNESS with regards
They REFUSE TO
ACKNOWLEDGE that they can't
"save themselves" NOR PLAY ANY ROLE AT ALL in their
UNDESERVED GIFT OF Salvation.
They want to "pay" for
their Salvation either wholly or partially.
And "pay" they will.
WHY hell exists.
It's for people LIKE
they are in hell, they will find, much to their dismay,
that their religion's leaders WHOM THEY FOLLOWED BLINDLY...
whom they allowed themselves to be brainwashed...
lying words THEY CHOSE TO believe above God's...
Also went there.
That they are
AS LOST AS those whom they blindly and STUPIDLY
That they are in a
place of torment, alienated from God, BECAUSE THEY
REFUSED to GRATEFULLY RECEIVE the GIFT of God's Grace who
is TOTAL Salvation Himself (Hebrews 7:25).
They refused to
believe or acknowledge that Jesus had
SAVED THEM COMPLETELY.
And, they'll be
spiritually back to square one:
Which is their
UTTER INABILITY TO earn or play ANY part whatsoever in
their own salvation.
COMPLETELY DONE FOR US - from beginning to end - by
no less than God Himself.
And those who refuse
it, will find themselves in the torment of hell.
The purpose of hell is for
them to realize THAT THERE'S NOTHING THEY
CAN DO TO SAVE THEMSELVES.
Or even to HELP save
They'll be utterly
HELPLESS: In torment, alienation from God, and TOTALLY
at His mercy.
Then maybe, just
maybe, they'll come to realize that
ALL THE RELIGIOUS RULES they "observed" in order to be
That they utterly
failed to "earn" them Salvation.
And that their ONLY
hope of salvation is to TRUST
100% - even in the midst of the flames - in
Jesus' Perfect, COMPLETE, SUFFICIENT
-- and FINISHED -- Work of Redemption.
They'll HAVE TO trust
His Grace 100% to come out of there.
The sad part is that THEY
COULD HAVE TRUSTED JESUS COMPLETELY while they lived on
this earth, and altogether avoided that torment, had they
not hardened their self-righteous religious hearts.
God's Way is EASY.,
because Jesus DID IT ALL.
Our way is HARD
because NOTHING THAT WE DO,
or abstain from doing, will ever REMOTELY satisfy God.
John 14:6: Salvation is
either God's Way -- which is Jesus ALONE -- or
There are millions of
people the world over who
CALL Jesus their Savior.
IN REALITY, many of
them see Him ONLY AS their
A PARTIAL Savior is
someone who CANNOT do the
A PARTIAL Savior IS
NOT sufficient - all by Himself - TO SAVE.
A PARTIAL Savior MUST
BE "SUPPLEMENTED" with things such as obedience, good
works, not sinning, water baptism, observing the law, or
the 10 commandments, observing the 24-hour Sabbath,
belonging to a specific denomination, etc.
The notion of a
"partial" Savior was spawned
It's underlying cause
We're NOT 100% certain that
Jesus PAID FOR - and COMPLETELY REMOVED - ALL sin for ALL
We FEAR that
He may NOT BE ENOUGH to save us.
So, we SUPPLEMENT Him
with all the aforementioned "co-saviors".
We want Jesus to be ONLY PART
OF our Salvation, but we want OUR OWN WORKS, OUR OWN
"MERITS", to also be PART OF
the Salvation process.
SUCH THING AS a "partial" savior.
A PARTIAL SAVIOR ISN'T
a savior AT ALL.
HOW can Jesus be our
Savior if He - ALONE - COULDN'T GET
THE JOB DONE?
Salvation is 100% by
The "partial Savior"
theory PROVES that we have NO
TRUST (faith) in Him.
Those for whom Jesus is only
PARTIAL Savior, ARE NOT SAVED.
Either Jesus is your TOTAL
- ONE AND ONLY - Savior, or He's
not your Savior AT ALL.
Do you trust
Him completely, or not?

MONDAY, NOVEMBER 17,
We have people who
camp out on the streets all night so they can get tickets
to a concert.
We have hordes who stand
in line for hours on end to purchase the latest IPhone
or state-of-the-art gadget.
Some silly people
wouldn't miss their favorite soap opera if their life
depended on it.
Others faint and fawn over
some untalented "celebrity" who's famous only for making a
sex video and getting tons of plastic surgery.
They go to some
sporting event and aren't the least bit embarrassed to
paint their faces in their favorite team's colors, wear
some ridiculous wig, and make complete fools of themselves
by shouting their favoritism in front of a crowd.
It seems that every
Hollywood slut and crackhead has a cadre of adoring
"fans", who'll go to any
extreme to meet them, sleep with them, or get their
denominational automatons that TOTALLY WORSHIP their
denomination's founder -- to the point of placing his or
her word ABOVE GOD'S, without any remorse, or even an after
Not to mention that
there are religious fanatics
willing to blow themselves (and others) to bits over
some dead guy who claimed to be a prophet.
My question to
the Church in general, and so-called Christian leaders in
WHERE ARE JESUS'
Most preachers tell
their congregations or audiences that they are to be
"measured" and "balanced".
In other words, don't
get too excited.
Believe in Jesus, but
DON'T go overboard.
Let me give you a
synonym for "balanced" (at least in that context):
If we CAN'T get
excited about Jesus, WHO can
we get excited about?
What we need is a bunch of
SCALDING HOT Christ FANATICS who go TO THE EXTREME in their
love and enthusiasm for Jesus.
THAT'S HOW the Early
Church swallowed up the Roman Empire with all its military
They simply COULDN'T
STOP TALKING ABOUT Jesus!
They simply COULDN'T
SHUT THEM UP.
Nor could they dampen
their enthusiasm, DESPITE CONSTANT threats and relentless
and ruthless persecution.
embarrassing to compare them to today's religious wimps
with their "measured", "religiously proper" and TEPID
Himself said he's going TO VOMIT some of these "proper
Christians" out of His Body (Revelation 3:16).
One of the reasons
that the Pentecostal or Charismatic movement has spread so
rapidly is that they are about THE ONLY ONES in Christendom
who are "excited" and bold about Jesus.
What a pity that they've
ruined their witness to the world through greed, deceit,
manipulation, and buffoonish antics.
I don't want ANYONE
following this ministry to be "balanced".
I want A BUNCH OF RADICAL
FANATICS, WHO'LL GO TO THE EXTREME for Jesus:
HIM to the extreme.
SERVE HIM to the extreme.
SEEK HIM to the extreme.
LOVE HIM to the extreme.
A bunch of BOLD,
STRONG, CONFIDENT, OBSESSED
Jesus EXTREMISTS who are not afraid or embarrassed to
look someone in the eye and say:
"I'm a Jesus
fanatic... and PROUD OF IT".
SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 16,
ANGRY WITH GOD
I have a confession: there
have been times in my life, in fact NUMEROUS times, when
I've gotten frustrated and angry with God. I mean,
desperately angry, FUMING
Matter of fact, I've
TOLD Him as much.
I've often expressed
that anger in EXTREMELY
harsh, devastatingly HONEST ways.
In moments of great
frustration, I've also used FOUL language that, by human
standards, is considered HIGHLY improper.
If you got any blood
circulating in your veins, and unless you've lived all your
life in a gilded castle, insulated from all the evils and
trials of this messed up world, YOU HAVE, TOO.
You might as well
Am I proud of such moments?
Have I asked forgiveness? You
Have I been forgiven? Each
and every time.
And, I suspect, there
may be a few more times before this crazy age comes to and
end where I'll be in need of SPECIAL forgiveness.
Do you think that
"holding back" and NOT expressing your anger will win you
any brownie points?
Do you think NOT
expressing your anger and frustration means that God
won't KNOW about it?
Ha! Don't make me
He KNEW ABOUT IT before
you even felt it.
He KNEW ABOUT IT before
He created you.
He KNEW ABOUT IT before
the foundation of the world.
There's A LOT of pain
all around us.
There's A LOT of pain
in ALL our lives.
There's A LOT of stuff
that we DON'T understand.
It's hard to
understand WHY, when you've given your WHOLE heart and life
to Jesus, when you've made untold SACRIFICES for His sake
and the Gospel's, AND YET He allows some terribly painful
things to happen, IN SPITE OF THAT.
It's hard and IT HURTS.
It's true the Bible
warns that to whom much is given of him MUCH shall be
required [Luke 12:48], but that doesn't numb the pain, or
diminish its intensity.
I don't care what some
religious stiff may say, praising
is THERAPEUTIC, and so is VENTING.
Do you know that when
I've poured out my anger and frustration [and I mean,
REALLY let it rip!], God's NEVER gotten angry at me?
NEVER abandoned me.
He's NEVER made fun
of, ridiculed, dismissed or belittled my VERY REAL pain.
He's NEVER thrown some
overused, one size fits all religious cliché at me.
Thank God He's
NEVER stopped communicating with me.
Truth be told, I've
gotten some of the BIGGEST revelations RIGHT AFTER getting
shouting mad at Him.
Which demonstrates the
sheer GREATNESS and infinity of
His Perfect, NEVER FAILING, UNCONDITIONAL LOVE.
Do I love Him any less
because I've expressed such frustration, pain, or anger?
I love Him more today
than I EVER did: With ALL my heart, soul, strength and
mind, with every particle of
Does He love me any
No way. Praise Him
FOREVER AND EVER!
We have the kind of
INTIMATE spiritual relationship where
I can tell Him ANYTHING, and He can tell me anything, good,
bad, ugly, or somewhere in between.
I don't get offended
either, when He speaks to me
clearly and directly. In fact, I absolutely LOVE His
openness and HONESTY. I LOVE IT when He CORRECTS ME,
and sets me straight.
That's the kind of
relationship He wants to have
Truth isn't always
pretty. FLESH is easily offended.
Carnal Christians often
can't handle truth.
Saying "nice things" that
you don't really mean is hypocritical.
JESUS can handle your
anger. He can handle ANYTHING
handle ANY THING, PERIOD.

SIN IS GONE!
Do you know that
Jesus TOOK AWAY the sin
of the world - ONCE AND FOR
By His death and
Resurrection JESUS PAID - IN
FULL - FOR EVERY SIN EVER COMMITTED.
His payment for past,
present and future sins is SO
COMPLETE that God NO LONGER COUNTS THOSE SINS AGAINST US!!!
EVEN REMEMBER those sins!
after Scripture that ESTABLISHES THIS GREAT AND
1. "Look, the
Lamb of God WHO TAKES AWAY THE SIN of the world!" (John
2. "AS FAR AS the east is
from the west, SO FAR HAS HE REMOVED our transgressions
from us." (Psalm 103:12)
3. "But now, at the
end of the ages, He has
appeared once for all TO REMOVE SIN BY HIS SACRIFICE." (Hebrews
4. "Not with the blood
of goats and calves, but WITH HIS OWN BLOOD He went into
the Most Holy Place once for all and SECURED
OUR ETERNAL REDEMPTION." (Hebrews 9:12)
5. "For by one
offering HE HAS PERFECTED
FOREVER those that are sanctified." (Hebrews 10:14)
6. "God was in Christ
reconciling the world to Himself: NOT
COUNTING MEN'S SINS AGAINST THEM". (2 Corinthians 5:19)
7. "blessed is the
one AGAINST WHOM the Lord
WILL NEVER COUNT SIN." (Romans 4:8)
8. "Blessed is the
one WHOSE SIN the LORD DOES
NOT COUNT AGAINST THEM" (Psalm 32:2)
9. "And you know that Jesus
was revealed TO TAKE AWAY OUR SINS" (1 John 35).
10. "I, even I am He WHO
BLOTS OUT YOUR TRANSGRESSIONS, for my own sake, AND REMEMBERS
YOUR SINS NO MORE" (Isaiah 43:25)
11. "Come now, and let
us reason together, said the LORD: THOUGH
YOUR SINS BE AS SCARLET, THEY SHALL BE AS WHITE AS SNOW; though
they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool."
12. "These are they

HAVE WASHED THEIR ROBES AND MADE THEM WHITE in the Blood of
the Lamb." (Revelation 7:14)

WILL FORGIVE THEIR WICKEDNESS AND WILL REMEMBER THEIR SINS
NO MORE." (Hebrews 8:12)

NO MORE." (Jeremiah 31:34)
16. "Cleanse me with
hyssop, and I will be clean; WASH
ME, AND I WILL BE WHITER THAN SNOW." (Psalm 51:7)
But... wait a
minute... I still sin.
Yes, you do.
And so do I.
That's because our
minds have not yet been renewed.
When we're born again
our SPIRIT is made new.
Our MIND (the part of
us THAT CAUSES sin) REMAINS THE SAME.
Our mind will
be made new AT THE RAPTURE.
After that blessed event WE
WON'T SIN ANYMORE... EVER!
Well, what about ALL
THE SINS that I commit BEFORE then?
What about ALL THE SINS that
I'm committing RIGHT NOW?
If you have received
Christ into your heart, as your only God and Savior, and
you put your trust (faith) in Him, He's
NOT COUNTING THOSE SINS AGAINST YOU!!!
Because Jesus already
PAID FOR EVERY ONE OF those sins!
God knew BEFORE HE
CREATED US every sin we would ever commit.
He PROVIDED PAYMENT for those
sins, through Jesus, BEFORE the foundation of the world (Revelation
Well, WHY then do I
For YOUR benefit, not God's.
Confessing sin to God
and to those we have wronged RELEASES OUR CONSCIENCE from
But THAT SIN HAD BEEN
PAID FOR -- AND FORGIVEN --BEFORE you even committed it.
You mean that I can SIN ALL I
WANT and still be saved?
Because Jesus is FAR
GREATER than ALL YOUR SINS COMBINED.
Besides, if you REALLY
ARE saved, you DO NOT WANT TO sin.
We sin --from time to
time-- because our flesh is weak.
Any SAVED (born again)
person who thinks "since I CAN'T lose Salvation, I'm going
to sin again and again ON PURPOSE" definitely
has the wrong attitude,but
THE RIGHT DOCTRINE.
The key words are "any
SAVED (born-again) person".
If you're NOT
born-again, then you're NOT in Christ and - SINCE YOU
HAVEN'T ACCEPTED HIS PAYMENT FOR YOUR SINS - you
ARE ACCOUNTABLE for them.
But if Jesus removed
ALL SIN for ALL TIME, why is there so much FOCUS and so
much preaching AGAINST sin by denominations, ministers and
in worship centers?
Because ALL RELIGION
Because RELIGION has more
faith in sin's ability to damn us than in Christ's Blood TO
JESUS DESTROYED sin.
He DESTROYED its power
to damn us by PAYING FOR IT
It's RELIGION that
insists on keeping sin ALIVE.
It's religion that insists on
COUNTING sins against us, even when GOD SAID He NO LONGER
It's RELIGION that
insists we need to bear "fruit" in order to be saved.
It's RELIGION that
insists on "helping" Jesus save us.
If He needed our
"help" in order to save us, He WOULDN'T BE God.
He'd be a pitiful and
If He needed our
"help" in order to save us, we WOULDN'T STAND A CHANCE,
because we screw up EVERYTHING we touch.
But wait, DIDN'T Jesus
say we would know them "by their fruits".
He said that PRIOR TO
He said that BEFORE He went
to the cross and paid for ALL your sins and mine, FRUIT OR
The "fruit" of the
Spirit IN OUR LIVES is NOT A
CONDITION FOR Salvation, but rather is PROOF
that WE ALREADY ARE saved.
We DO NOT produce
fruit IN ORDER TO BE saved.
We produce fruit because
we ALREADY ARE saved.
Salvation is NOT
a future event but PRESENT
If it wasn't, it
wouldn't be called ETERNAL Life.
This LIBERATING Truth
has been in the Bible for
MORE THAN 2,000 years.
It's time for us TO
FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 14,
BOOK OF DANIEL
In the Book of
Revelation, chapters 4 through to 19, the apostle John is
treated to a heavenly tour and a panoramic view of earth's
In chapter 4 he
describes God as looking like "jasper and carnelian" (I'm
quite familiar with both these stones and, keeping in mind
that God is Spirit, still wonder about such description),
he describes the Throne, the cherubim around it, the
rainbow, the sea of emerald in front, and the 24 elders.
In chapter 5,
however, he focuses on what
God holds in His Right Hand.
It's at God's Right Hand that
Jesus, in His glorified human form, is seated (Psalm
110:1; Hebrews 1:3).
WHAT could be SO
IMPORTANT that God would hold it in
His Right Hand?
Could it be the Book
of Genesis, which started the whole earth experience?
Or, perhaps, one of
Or the Psalms, where
God is so often praised?
Surely, ONE of the
Gospels, which tell of Jesus' Most Perfect Work of
NO -- and I was just
as amazed about it as you probably are -- IT'S THE BOOK OF
The Father holds in
His Right Hand A SINGLE SCROLL sealed with SEVEN seals.
The ONLY Book in the
entire Bible that was sealed BY
JESUS HIMSELF is the Book of Daniel (Daniel 12:4, 9).
Thus, as we see in
Revelation chapter 5, after scouring all of heaven and
earth, and even UNDER the earth, for a "worthy" candidate, ONLY
JESUS is found worthy to remove the seals thereof and OPEN
He is the One who sealed that
Book, and He's the ONLY One who can UNSEAL or open it.
Praise Him forevermore.
Indeed, by Revelation
chapter 10, this theretofore sealed Book has been opened,
all 7 seals have been lifted, and
Jesus is still holding it in His Hand.
He then FEEDS IT to
John telling him to "eat it up".
The ENTIRE Book of
Revelation, which is THE
Revelation OF Jesus Christ (Revelation 1:1), is simply the
UNSEALING OF the Book of Daniel.
It's only AFTER Jesus
unseals this Book that the 7 trumpets, three woes and 7
vials are disclosed and realized.
It's the Book of
Daniel that INTRODUCED the concept of the Kingdom of God
(Daniel 2:21; 4:17, 25, 32; 5:21) which John the Baptist,
Jesus, and the disciples repeatedly preached.
It's after Daniel's Book is
UNSEALED, and its unsealing disclosed to us in Revelation,
that the Kingdom of God manifests here on earth (Revelation
We're living THE
FINAL MOMENTS OF the 5th Seal.
The 6th Seal is the
sealing of the 144,000 and the Rapture (Revelation 6:12-16;
The 7th Seal is the
Tribulation (Revelation 8:1-3).
The 7th Trumpet
announces God's Jubilee, the establishment of His Eternal
Kingdom on earth, as it is in heaven.
Jesus entrusted TWO THINGS to
John: His human mother and the Book of Daniel, which
contains the Revelation of Christ Himself and His Kingdom.
The fact Jesus chose
His Beloved disciple as the revealer of this Book, shows
just how important its contents are to God and to us.

in prison (according to Aristobulos), others say (Ptolemy)
that he was crucified.
Some, like Plutarch
tell fantastic stories about Alexander's childhood, not
found in any of the other major historical sources.
Historians also differ
among themselves about precisely what took place at the
battle of Granicus, the legendary Gordian Knot, about
Alexander's death, how long he was ill, and what happened
to his corpse afterward.
Yet NO MODERN
"scholar" would be foolish
enough to deny Alexander's historicity, or the validity
of the major events in his life, as
they stupidly try to do with Jesus.
Do you suppose these
"scholars" are GUILTY OF APPLYING A DOUBLE-STANDARD?
One of the so-called
"inconsistencies" in the Gospels that critics love to nit
pick are the accounts of
Matthew 28:1-7 says
there was a quake, an angel came down from heaven and
rolled away the stone, sat on it and then told the women to
tell the disciples that He'd risen.
Mark 16:1-4 say that
the stone had already been rolled away when the women
When they entered they
saw a "young man" (presumably the angel) sitting on the
Luke 24:1-8 also has
the stone rolled away when the women arrive.
And not one but TWO
men in gleaming clothes who say "Why do you look for the
living among the dead? He is not here; he has risen!".
I'll deal with John's
Gospel in a minute.
Is there CONTRADICTION?
Matthew was one of the
12 Apostles (Matthew 10:3).
He'd been a TAX
COLLECTOR for the Romans (Matthew
doubtlessly KNEW the Roman guards posted at the tomb's
That's why he's THE
ONLY ONE who tells what happened from THEIR (the guards')
point of view, and is also the only evangelist to tell us that
the guards were bribed by the chief priests to say that
Jesus' body "had been stolen" (Matthew 28:12).
The guards WHO WERE
THERE when the Resurrection took place, witnessed the
quake, the angel rolling away the stone and sitting on it.
Matthew NEVER SAYS
that there wasn't a second angel.
He merely focuses on
the initial angel that rolled out the very large, heavy
stone, which the guards saw with their own eyes (Matthew
Mark and Luke tell the
story FROM THE WOMEN'S PERSPECTIVE.
When they arrived to
anoint Jesus' body, the quake had already taken place, the
first angel had already rolled away the stone, and the
Roman guards had already fled or vanished.
In both accounts, the
women found the stone already removed.
In Mark's they see an
angel on "the right side" of the tomb, in Luke's account
two angels stand to their side.
Again, Mark does NOT
say there wasn't a second angel that appeared a bit later.
He merely focuses on the first angel they saw on the right
It's obvious that they
saw the second angel moments later, as recorded by Luke.
There is NO
What ALL three say
very clearly is that Jesus'
body WAS NOT inside (Matthew 28:6; Mark 16:6-7; Luke
John's account (John 20:1-9):
John describes the
Resurrection from his perspective:
AFTER the guards had
gone, and AFTER the women go to the tomb and find NO JESUS
there, they come running to Peter and John.
They tell them ""They
have taken the Lord out of the tomb, and we don't know
where they have put Him!"
Peter and John then
run to the tomb, ENTER the tomb -- by then the angels have
left the scene -- and they find the tomb empty with the
"linen clothes" and the smaller cloth that had been wrapped
around Jesus' head.
When studied, IN
CONTEXT, there is NO DISCREPANCY AT ALL.
It's THE SAME STORY
told from different perspectives, by
people who saw the empty tomb - and the events associated
with His Resurrection - AT DIFFERENT TIMES.
If you went to your
friend's house at 3:00 PM and he was having trouble with
his plumbing, you'd say:
"I went to Joe's house
and couldn't use the restroom, because the pipes were
If Henry arrives 45
minutes later, he might say:
"I went to Joe's house
and he was having some sort of problem with his pluming. I
saw the plumber there."
And if Jim shows up an
hour and a half later, he might say:
"Joe had a plumbing
problem. I saw the plumber and his assistant unclogging the
pipes and installing some new toilet parts".
Are they lying? Are
they making up a story?
No. Henry, Jim and you
ALL TOLD THE TRUTH: you
merely described the same situation FROM DIFFERENT
PERSPECTIVES, based on what you saw at DIFFERENT TIMES.
Just like the nitwit
who wrote a couple of months ago (thinking himself to be
super-smart) and said the Bible contained error because
Satan took Jesus to a high mountain and showed Him all the
kingdoms of the world (Luke 4:5).
He argued that for
Jesus to have seen all the kingdoms of earth from a
mountain, the earth would have to be flat.
His giant ego was
promptly deflated when I pointed out:
A. That, in context,
"all the kingdoms" referred to the Roman Empire, which was
the "world" known then. The American continent and much of
Africa and Asia was unknown at the time.
B. That for Satan to
have shown it all to Him "in an instant", as the verse
clearly says, proved it was
supernatural (spiritual) vision, NOT natural human
C. That since
Satan himself IS A SPIRIT BEING, and not a human, IT WOULD
HAVE HAD TO BE SPIRITUAL VISION.
What really bothers me
is that when some unbeliever brings up some lame argument
like these, most Christians are dumbfounded.
They HAVE NO ANSWERS.
GIVING YOU the answers:
REAL OR NOT?
The 21st century has
produced a pack of writers and so-called "historians" whose
ONLY claim to fame, at least for their respective 15
minutes, is denying the EXISTENCE of Jesus Christ.
Those who DO NOT WANT
TO believe in Christ will, of course, cling frantically TO
ANY argument, no matter how untrue or lacking in validity,
to "justify" their unbelief.
The Church, however,
is not blameless with regards to the endemic attempts to
disprove Jesus' existence.
Most of us speak and
act AS IF Jesus WASN'T REAL.
He WERE real, then we'd be focused
We'd be seeking
what He wants, NOT what WE want.
Our thoughts would
be centered on His wishes, NOT OURS.
We'd be enjoying and
thrilling on His INNER
Presence, instead of on so many worldly distractions.
We'd be talking to
Him, talking ABOUT Him, listening to Him, enjoying Him,
praising Him, and eternally
grateful FOR Him.
We'd be basking
in His Presence and OVERFLOWING WITH JOY in His eternal
Yet the only time we
pay LIP SERVICE to our "Christianity" is at those dumb
worship centers we UNBIBLICALLY CALL "churches", where we
sing those boring hymns filled with empty rhetoric and vain
NO WONDER those WHO
HAVEN'T EXPERIENCED Christ think He's not real!
No wonder they claim that
He never existed.
He HAD EXISTED, if He REALLY died for our sins, ROSE FROM
THE DEAD, and ASCENDED...
If He REALLY
Then His followers COULDN'T
STOP TALKING about Him.
He'd be THE
VERY CENTER of our lives.
He'd be OUR
NUMBER ONE PRIORITY.
He'd be CONSTANTLY
in our thoughts and lips.
We'd be BRAGGING
about how Wonderful He is and
HOW PRIVILEGED WE ARE to be His children.
There will always be
some instrument of Satan, some puny antichrist (small "a"),
trying in vain to distort the Gospel or deny that Jesus
came in the flesh (1 John 2:18,22; 4:3; 2 John 1:7).
That's nothing new.
The antichrist spirit's been around since the the Garden of
The reason these
deceivers number so many 60 centuries later is
because MOST OF US LIVE AND ACT AS IF JESUS DOES NOT EXIST.
As if He'd NEVER existed!
So, before we go
around blaming those foolish writers, headed for Hades, and
for whom we can only pray that they'll come to their senses
and cry out for mercy from hell itself to
the VERY REAL and HISTORIC Jesus...
We better take a long,
deep and HONEST look at our own "Christian" lives.
If Jesus ISN'T real, then we
have every right to ignore Him.
If He is REAL, if He truly
LIVES IN us, then He is
OUR VERY LIFE, THE CENTER OF OUR BEING, FOR
WHOM WE LIVE, WHO IS CONSTANTLY IN OUR HEARTS AND
THOUGHTS, AND ABOUT WHOM WE CONSTANTLY SPEAK.
If He's real then He's not an
"afterthought", or someone to think of when we have
nothing better to do: He is
NUMBER ONE in our lives, and He comes BEFORE ALL ELSE.
If Jesus is real, if He
REALLY EXISTS, if He REALLY LIVES, if He REALLY SAVED US, then
let's live and ACT like it.
TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 11,
YOUR BIBLE IS WRONG
Sorry, didn't mean for
you to fall off your chair...
I didn't say "THE
Bible" is wrong. I said "YOUR Bible"
So is mine.
THE Bible, as
it was originally written and inspired by the Holy Spirit,
is ERROR FREE.
That's why Jesus used
it and quoted it continuously.
ENOUGH FOR JESUS should be GOOD ENOUGH for us.
The original Bible was
written in Hebrew, Aramaic or Greek.
It was NOT written in English.
What we have in
English today are
TRANSLATIONS OF that original Bible.
The ORIGINAL BIBLE is
Translations of the
Bible often ARE NOT TRUE.
Translations of the
Bible (or should I say "MIS-translations") OFTEN
reflect man invented religious dogma and religious BIAS.
I have - from time to
time - exposed some of these errors, like Psalm 8:5,
Matthew 24:29, Luke 21:36, 2 Thessalonians 2:3, Hebrews
6:4-6; and James chapter 2.
one takes the cake.
One of the most
egregious violations of THE ORIGINAL Scripture text is
found in 1 Timothy 2:11-15:
"Let the woman learn
in silence with all subjection. But I
suffer not a woman to teach, nor to usurp
authority over the man, but to be in
For Adam was first
formed, then Eve.
And Adam was not
deceived, but THE WOMAN BEING DECEIVED was in the
SHALL BE SAVED IN CHILDBEARING, if they continue in faith
and charity and holiness with sobriety" (KJV)
Ooooooh my God! Did I just
read that women are saved BY BEARING CHILDREN?
Therefore, FAITH IN
JESUS ISN'T SUFFICIENT
for women to be saved? They
MUST also GIVE BIRTH?
What about believing
(Don't laugh, there
are still A FEW of those
left... believe it or not)
What about believing
women who are BARREN and CAN'T HAVE children?
Does God discriminate
against women saving men BY FAITH ONLY, but
requiring women to both have faith AND BEAR CHILDREN?
it says IN OUR ENGLISH Bibles!
And, to be fair, it's
NOT ONLY the KJV that gives such rendering:
The NIV, the New
Living, the Jubilee 2000, King James 2000, American King
James, Douay-Rheims (Catholic) Bible, New Jerusalem
(Catholic) Bible, the English Revised, the so-called

perhaps others -- give, essentially, the same INCORRECT

THAT'S what the
ORIGINAL Greek text says.
talking about women giving birth to children being
necessary for salvation. It's
talking ABOUT THE BIRTH OF JESUS!!!
THE Child, or "the SEED
of the woman" that God promised in Genesis 3:15 would crush
Satan's head and SAVE ALL OF
US - men and women.
JUST BEFORE that
statement, it talks about Eve.
It says THE WOMAN
(singular, Eve) will be saved through
the Child that would be born from her (the woman's seed).
That's why Jesus HAD
TO BE virgin born.
What A LIE has been
perpetuated in one translation after another!
I wish I could say the
deception ends there but, unfortunately, there's more:
What about the first
part of the verse that says "Let A WOMAN learn IN SILENCE
with all subjection. But I suffer not A WOMAN to teach, nor
to usurp authority over the man, but to be IN SILENCE".
Is that talking
about ALL women, or about ONE woman in particular?
"Christian" religion after another has - for almost 2,000
years - used that Scripture TO PENALIZE WOMEN, treat them
as second-class believers, and
PREVENT THEM from teaching the Bible or preaching the
How UTTERLY STUPID can
For starters, it says
NOTHING about "silence". The word translated silence means
This is talking about interaction
between WIVES and HUSBANDS.
The Greek words gune and andros are
the same words used in Ephesians chapter 5:22 to say "WIVES submit
to your HUSBANDS" or in
Ephesians 5:25 to say "HUSBANDS love
your WIVES as Christ
loved the Church".
must ask ourselves WHY religious hypocrites CORRECTLY
translated them "WIVES" and "HUSBANDS in Ephesians 5, but
"woman" and "man" in 1 Timothy 2, where
IT'S CLEARLY talking about wives and husbands and even uses
Adam and Eve, the first human couple, as example.
The Greek says that "A
WOMAN (SINGULAR or WIFE, same word) must receive
instruction quietly (in STILLNESS).
The word "authority"
is not exhousia which DOES MEAN "authority" but
rather authentein which
means "TO GOVERN".
Paul is saying he
doesn't permit WIVES to teach or GOVERN (DOMINATE) their

isn't talking about ANY woman, but STRICTLY
ABOUT A WIFE'S attitude toward her HUSBAND.
What's really funny is
that the same religious bigots that MISTRANSLATE and
MISQUOTE this Scripture to PREVENT WOMEN FROM SERVING
JESUS have no problem
whatsoever VOTING FOR a woman Mayor, a Congresswoman, Judge
or Senator, which are positions where
they'll both, HAVE AUTHORITY OVER, and GOVERN (DOMINATE)
Furthermore, these are
all positions where women ARE
REQUIRED TO SPEAK PUBLICLY and OFTEN.
Jesus - who came to liberate women, and DID - and Paul, who
get erroneously tagged with "discrimination" again women, when
THE TRUE CULPRIT IS RELIGION.
You want to
REALLY see misogyny in action?
Read the Koran.
The same secular
hypocrites who accuse the Christian faith of "female
discrimination" DON'T SAY A WORD about
the horrible oppression and abuse imposed on women under
that thoroughly evil and satanic religion called Islam,
which treats them as fourth rate personal property.
Jesus came TO SAVE and
set both men and women FREE.
It's RELIGION that

THE FOUR HORSES OF THE

in both, evangelical circles, and by the prophecy
establishment, is that these symbolic horses are in our
I'm not a preterist
(God forbid, far from it), however, these horses are IN OUR
MOST of the events in
the Book of Revelation are still in our "future".
The events in
Revelation CHAPTER 6 are IN
OUR PAST (the four horses), OUR
PRESENT (the 5th seal) and OUR
FUTURE (the 6th seal) which brings the beginning of the
3½ year tribulation and the Rapture (Revelation 1:19).
All the confusion about
the timing of the horses stems from the fact that the
prophecy establishment GETS THE FIRST HORSE WRONG.
Since they THINK it's
the Antichrist - and he's in
our "future" because he
hasn't appeared yet - then THE HORSES THAT FOLLOW MUST
ALSO be in our future.
The ENTIRE Book of
Revelation is THE REVELATION
OF Jesus Christ (Revelation 1:1).
It's NOT the
revelation of Antichrist.
The Antichrist is
mentioned ONLY because Satan will be allowed to bring him
out of the abyss to rule the earth 42 months (Revelation
with THE RISEN JESUS who CONQUERED sin, Satan, death
and hell (Revelation 1:18).
with His TOTAL VICTORY over every enemy, His
ETERNAL Kingdom on earth, followed by new heavens, new
earth and New Jerusalem.
THE FIRST SEAL brought
the white horse whose rider went forth "CONQUERING
AND TO COME OFF VICTORIOUS".
This rider is NOT -

Unless, of course, we
are dumb enough to think that Alexander WILL COME OFF
VICTORIOUS at Armageddon and Jesus will be defeated (perish
the very thought).
JESUS, therefore, who went forth CONQUERING (even death
itself) and TO COME OFF VICTORIOUS.
Once we pin that down,
the rest is easy:
King Jesus rides the
WHITE HORSE which represents the first 400 years of Church
history (each leg representing approximately a century) during
which, His Church, peacefully, WITHOUT WEAPONS, by the
sheer power of the Spirit of God and the Word of God
CONQUERED the mightiest empire known to man, namely the
The RED HORSE
represents the next 400 years, from roughly 400-800 A.D. a
turbulent period MARKED BY CONTINUOUS WARS, exactly as
DUE TO THE NUMEROUS
WARS the Western portion of the Roman Empire collapsed
during that time.
The BLACK HORSE
represents the Dark Ages, the period from 800-1200 A.D.
(from the 9th to the 13th century).
It was characterized
by spiritual darkness,
paganism infiltrating the Church, restricted access to the
Bible, the feudal system, GRAIN EMBARGOES AND INFLATED
PRICES, exactly as described.
The PALE HORSE runs
from approximately 1200 to 1600 A.D.
During this time "The
Plague" or "Black Death" killed
THE FOURTH PART OF Europe's population (over 100 MILLION
PEOPLE), EXACTLY AS DESCRIBED.
The Plague also
affected most countries in northern Africa and the Middle
East, and their populations.
The Black Death, as it
turned out, was caused by THE
BEASTS OF THE EARTH (rat's fleas).
It's a PERFECT fit.
The other common
mistake they make is trying to equate Jesus' statement
about the birth pangs or "beginning of sorrows" in Matthew
24:4-8 to the seals in Revelation 6.
They point out that in
Matthew 24:4-8 Jesus spoke of
wars and rumors of wars, famines and pestilences.
And that in Revelation
6:4 the red horse brings war.
Here's the problem
with that theory:
The red horse ALSO
"TAKES THE PEACE FROM the
earth", which INDICATES there
HAD BEEN PEACE.
Can someone please show me
where that PEACE is today?
So this COULDN'T
POSSIBLY refer to our time or our immediate future, since
the Antichrist is STRICTLY A MAN OF WAR (Daniel
8:23-25; 11:31, 40-44; Revelation 13:5).
There's NO PEACE in
our future. At least not until the Prince of Peace returns
and sets up His Kingdom. Come Lord Jesus!
During the first and
second centuries A.D., however, there was the Pax Romana or
"Roman Peace" which lasted
over 200 years.
The red horse, as
already stated, runs
immediately after that, from approximately 400-800 A.D.
It, therefore, TAKES THE
Peace (Pax Romana) from the earth.
FITS that period, and the one preceding it, perfectly.
NOT REMOTELY fit the current geopolitical landscape.
Matthew 24:4-8 Jesus also mentions RAMPANT SPIRITUAL
DECEPTION IN HIS NAME and numerous earthquakes.
These signs ARE
NOWHERE MENTIONED in the four horses of Revelation 6.
So much for that DUMB
But what about
Revelation 6:6, where the black horse brings famine?
DOES NOT. It brought INFLATED FOOD PRICES.
Those are TWO
DIFFERENT things. We already explained how it fits
the period between the 9th and 13th centuries (see above).
The ONLY THING the
birth pangs and the seals have in common is war (red horse)
and famine (pale horse).
And (to coin a
phrase): "if it don't FIT,
you MUST QUIT" believing that unfounded theory.
We're living RIGHT NOW
between the 5th and 6th seals (APPROXIMATELY from 1600 to
The Rapture takes
place under the 6th seal.

MARKS OF A CULT
"....there are some
who trouble you and want to
distort the Gospel of Christ. But even
if we or an angel from heaven should preach to you a gospel
contrary to the one we preached to you, LET
HIM BE ACCURSED (Galatians 1:7-8).
A cult is a group or
organization that, while often quoting Scripture and
calling itself "Christian", DENIES one or more of the
FUNDAMENTAL TENETS of the Christian faith.
Since we constantly
get new believers coming to faith in Christ, as well as new
readers, let's go over what those fundamentals are:
1. The Bible is the
infallible, inerrant Word of God and is the final authority
2. There's One
Almighty, eternal God, who manifests Himself as Father, Son
and Holy Spirit.
3. Jesus Christ is God
manifested in human form.
4. Jesus is SINLESS
and was born of a virgin.
5. Jesus lived, died,
was buried, physically rose from the dead, and ascended to
6. Jesus in your heart
= COMPLETE salvation. There's no salvation in any other
person, or by any other means. Salvation is faith in Jesus
alone, not faith in Jesus "PLUS" something else.
7. Jesus will someday
return to earth to set up His everlasting Kingdom.
The most obvious signs
of a cult are:
1. Denying the Deity
2. DETRACTING from
Jesus' PERFECT and TOTAL Work of Redemption.
3. Adding to WHAT
JESUS DID TO SAVE US.
4. Exalting that
cult's (denomination's) founder.
One dead giveaway that
you're dealing with a cult is if the group says that Jesus
If the organization DETRACTS from Jesus by
denying His eternal Deity, or by saying that He died to
save us, BUT...
There are NO "BUTS".

Consequently, God NO
LONGER COUNTS OUR SINS AGAINST US (2 Corinthians 5:19).
If it DIMINISHES His
PERFECT, COMPLETE Work of Redemption, claiming it's NOT
ENOUGH to save us and we must ADD works IN ORDER TO BE
SAVED, like law keeping, 10 commandment keeping, Sabbath
keeping, water baptism, membership in that group,
circumcision of the flesh, following dietary laws, or if it
ADDS ANYTHING ELSE...
IT IS HERESY. It is a

BUT Jesus (the denomination itself, or its founder): Joseph
Smith, Brigham Young, Ellen White, Charles T. Russell, or
It is A FREAKIN' CULT.
Many cult leaders
CLAIM TO BE the "reincarnation of Jesus", that the Book of
Revelation refers to them, and that they've come to
"complete" Jesus' work of redemption.
Examples of this
blasphemy are Jim Jones, David Koresh, Sun Myung Moon, and
that nitwit Jose Luis Miranda.
Anyone who makes such
claim IS A LIAR, and an instrument of Satan.
Jesus' Work of
Redemption is PERFECT AND COMPLETE, AND LACKS NOTHING.
Most cults tend to be
SECRETIVE and practice SECRET rituals, which they WARN
their members NOT TO divulge, under threat of SERIOUS and
DRASTIC CONSEQUENCES if they break the "code of silence".
They all practice MIND

AMERICA IN PROPHECY
Is America mentioned
in Bible prophecy? What lies ahead for our nation in the
I have read and heard
every ridiculous theory you could imagine about the future
They range from
America not being mentioned at all in the Scriptures, to
America being Mystery Babylon and being destroyed during
the tribulation, to America being the REAL Israel.
America is NOT Mystery
Babylon. Mystery Babylon is clearly identified as A CITY,
NOT a nation (Revelation 17:18).
unequivocally identified as Rome, in Italy.
America is NOT
destroyed during the tribulation, but will be severely
damaged and diminished.
America is NOT the
"real" Israel, although there
are many, many natural and spiritual Israelites in America.
President Obama is NOT
the Antichrist. I don't care how much you dislike him, or
disagree with his policies. Trust me, I'm no fan. But to
say he's the Antichrist, is taking it a wee bit too far.
The Bible UNDISPUTEDLY
identifies the future Antichrist as
Alexander the Great, not Barack Obama.
What, then, happens to
America during the tribulation?
The tribulation begins
with the sun turning black where it's daytime, the moon
turning red as blood where it's night time, and a huge
shaking of both the atmospheric heavens and the earth.
There are numerous
scriptures that attest to this: Isaiah 13:10-13; Joel 2:10,
31; 3:15, 16; Haggai 2:6,7; Matthew 24:29; Revelation
Concurrent with these
events, the Church is raptured to heaven.
This great shaking of
the earth causes a MASSIVE rearrangement of both geography
and topography (Isaiah 2:21; 24:1, 18-20; Revelation 6:14).
As a result, the
American continent will no longer be insulated from the
rest of the world by miles and miles of ocean.
When the earth's axis
tilts, as predicted in Isaiah 24:1,20, the earth's land
mass will be once again amalgamated, which will make it not
only possible, but rather easy, for armies to reach this
continent by land, air or sea.
It will also make it
possible for mid-range, and perhaps even short-range
missiles to hit us.
And hit us, they will.
This nation will be
attacked from without and FROM WITHIN.
There are "sleeper cells"
RIGHT HERE IN THE U.S. already in place, just waiting for
the opportune moment to strike:
Add to all this, the
general atmosphere of fear, chaos and confusion caused by
these events... (Revelation 6:15-16), the sudden
disappearance of millions of people from the United States
and all nations of the earth, including people in some of
the top positions in our government... (Revelation 7:9),
and our enemies will perceive a golden, once-in-a-lifetime
opportunity to attack us.
Vietnam, Iraq and
Afghanistan combined will seem like a walk in the park, by
At some point in the
tribulation, the Western part of the United States will
become submerged under water, as it once was, effectively
cutting the country in half, both in size and population
(Isaiah 2:14; 24:18-20; Revelation 6:14;16:20).
Millions of our
compatriots will die either by these calamities, war,
disease or starvation (Isaiah 2:12-16, 13:12; 24:6).
America will be ruled
by the risen Antichrist for 42 months (3½ years), as will
every other nation on earth (Revelation 13:5-7).
Don't think for a
moment that I enjoy writing, or even thinking, about such
Though I'll be in
heaven when it happens, America is still my country, and it
breaks my heart to even imagine it.
The only "Good News"
is that Jesus will return from heaven with His saints, and
His Second Coming will save what's left of our nation from
being destroyed (Revelation 19:11-21).
America will survive
the tribulation, barely.
It will thrive again
during the Millennium, (Ezekiel 38:13) under the perfect
rule of the Prince of Peace, the King of kings and Lord of

The two sons of

nations, DECEIVING THEM into thinking they can topple THE
GOVERNMENT of the Christ.
Yes, he gathers them.
Yes, he brings them

be more like 12 SECONDS.
The INTENTION by God's
enemies of fighting these wars notwithstanding...
They are never fought.
Christ's enemies are
instantly and OVERWHELMINGLY defeated.
Which is proof
positive that Christ HAS
ALREADY CONQUERED every foe.
THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 6,
If you're going
through some sort of trial, are under attack, and feel that
everything in your life has gotten out of control, the
solution IS JESUS.
Spiritual warfare is NOT
ONLY UNNECESSARY: It's an ABOMINATION.
What Christians call
"warfare" is FEAR BASED and
shows NO FAITH in Christ's FINISHED work at Calvary.
implies that JESUS HASN'T
DECISIVELY WON the war against our enemy (Satan) and
that, therefore, WE MUST
FIGHT AND DEFEAT SATAN OURSELVES.
It robs us of the authority we
have in Christ.
Kings do not
constantly fight wars. Once the war HAS BEEN WON, they
ISSUE DECREES and their servants (in our case, angels)
carry them out.
We have Jesus' Name
and AUTHORITY: we are TO
STAND on His Authority and in His Name COMMAND our
enemies (Ephesians 6:13-14). No "warfare" involved.
We are ONE SPIRIT with
our Lord (1 Corinthians 6:17; 2 Corinthians 3:17).
Spirit, we speak and act ON HIS AUTHORITY (as Him) and
every evil spirit, Satan included, HAS
TO bow its knees and VANISH (Philippians 2:10).
There's a BIG
difference between intercession (praying
for others' deliverance, health, etc.) and what some
Christians call "spiritual warfare".
There's also a HUGE
DIFFERENCE between taking
authority over a spiritual stronghold that we may have
allowed over our lives, and DESTROYING IT with the spoken
Word, and by STANDING on Christ's authority, and
You may have done the
right things and called them by the WRONG NAME.
If that's the case, I
can live with that.
Warfare, as the name
clearly implies is DOING WAR. Jesus
ALREADY WON the war (Revelation 1:18).
You and I
can't win it ANY BETTER THAN HE ALREADY DID.
My advice, based on
both the Bible and personal experience, to
those who know Jesus and have been in distress is this:
1. Praise Him, Praise Him,
Praise the Father,
Son, and Holy Spirit IN
SPIRIT. Cultivate an attitude of praise, and remain in
it at all times.
Jesus is worthy OF ALL
When we praise Jesus
(who LIVES IN us), we elevate ourselves in the process.
IMPOSSIBLE to lift Him up, without lifting ourselves up.
Praise makes us
As an added bonus,
2. KNOW who you are in
You must become THOROUGHLY
CONVINCED and SPIRITUALLY ROOTED on His authority.
If you aren't
convinced of it yourself, you'll never convince the enemy.
3. STAND ON Jesus' Authority
and issue decrees in His Name FOR THE DESIRED RESULTS.
Such decrees must
never contradict His Word.
4. ERADICATE FEAR from your
Fear is a satanic
spirit. It opens the door to other principalities to wreak
havoc in your life.
When you CUT FEAR OFF, YOU
CUT SATAN OFF.
TAKE DOMINION OVER
FEAR, and EXPEL IT from your
life, for good.
it ever even tries to rear up its ugly head, chop it off
RIGHT THEN AND THERE.
Don't let it gain a
5. Purge the air and
atmosphere around your life
of all strongholds, of
all that is anti-God or anti-Christ by
Jesus' most precious Blood at least once a month.
6. Don't become
obsessed with Satan, evil spirits or demons.
Don't spend hours
doing this. If you HAVE THE
AUTHORITY it only takes a few minutes to establish God's
perfect will in our lives.
7. DON'T EVER, under ANY
circumstance, misuse God's Authority to manipulate others
and get them to do your bidding.
God gave man free
will. If you impinge on their free will, you're messing
with God's established order.
That's WITCHCRAFT any way
you look at it, and Jesus
will have NONE OF THAT.
8. Enjoy the victory.

CAN CHRISTIANS BE
PEOPLE ARE DESTROYED through LACK
OF KNOWLEDGE" (Hosea 4:6).
We hear it time and
again: "since I left so and so, or broke a certain
relationship, this or that has happened/is happening in my
life. I think this person has put a curse on me"
misconception isn't helped by the fact that we have
so-called PASTORS and supposed MINISTERS of the Good News
teaching that those who BELONG TO Jesus can be cursed.
Or that they can be
If you BELONG
TO Jesus, HOW ON EARTH can some demon POSSESS
He'd have to be
STRONGER THAN JESUS and basically SNATCH YOU AWAY FROM Him
It CANNOT happen.
I want to tell EVERY
SO-CALLED MINISTER WHO TEACHES THESE ABOMINATIONS: SUCH
TEACHING IS BLASPHEMY.
It's also supremely
lacks ANY biblical basis.
NO born-again child of
God is cursed.
BORN-AGAIN (SAVED) child of God is cursed.
NO BORN-AGAIN (saved)
child of God CAN BE cursed.
For the simple reason
that GOD HAS BLESSED US (Ephesians
1:3; Galatians 3:14).
And if GOD has blessed
us, there's NO ONE in heaven,
earth, or under the earth, that can put a curse on us.
The fact some
unpleasant situation manifests in our lives, or some
Christians face health or financial issues, or that
everything we touch seems to fail, DOES NOT MEAN THAT we
WHAT IT MEANS is that
either ignorantly or willingly, we have OPENED THE DOOR TO
some spiritual entity of darkness to operate in our lives.
It's NOT that someone
has "put a curse on you" it's
that you're living IN FEAR.
Christians quite often
BRING SOME FORM OF EVIL UPON THEMSELVES, by their
lifestyle, getting involved in the occult, intimate or
binding relationships with non-Christians, engaging in
sinful activities, steadfast rebellion and disobedience to
God, by their own choices, and by their carnal thinking.
Having been through
some of these situations in the past, I can tell you from
both THE BIBLE, and personal experience, HOW
IT ALL BEGINS:
Fear isn't a demon. Fear
IS A SPIRIT. It's a principality (2 Timothy 1:7;
And it's this evil
spirit THAT OPENS THE DOOR to
ALL OTHER satanic influences in our lives.
If we ENTERTAIN FEAR, IN ANY
FORM (shame, guilt, worry, being scared, horror movies,
occult, anxiety, dwelling on negative thoughts, or whatever
else we may call it), apart from God's direct, sovereign
and merciful intervention, you
can COUNT ON things in your life going badly.
C'mon, Martel... you
gotta be kidding!
Who in their right
mind would INVITE an evil spirit into their lives?
... Let alone someone
WHO BELIEVES in Jesus?
You should sit where I
sit and READ SOME OF THE MAIL
Not only do
UNBELIEVERS invite evil spirits, BELIEVERS
do as well.
That's why God's
Word COMMANDS US: "DON'T GIVE PLACE to the devil"
If we GIVE HIM place,
you can be sure the creep's going to "kill, steal, and
destroy" which is what he does (John 10:10).
And Satan can spot "an
opening" from A MILE AWAY.
You give him a
millimeter and he'll take a football field.
Many Christians do it
out of ignorance.
However, there are
"Christians" who actually SEEK -- AND PARTICIPATE IN -- ALL
SORTS OF satanic and occultist practices, including fortune
Sometimes they engage
in these activities to "be popular" or "feel accepted" in
Then, WHEN THEY GET
DESPERATE, and are being tormented, suicidal, bankrupt, or
ready to lose their minds, they contact us and seek help.
And while some of them
may be "Christian" IN NAME ONLY, the great tragedy is that
MANY OF THEM HAVE BEEN born again.
This, by the way,
takes place among people OF ALL AGES, male and female, but
PARTICULARLY young people.
They are bored with
churchianity, with the stale, uninspiring fare their
religious country club regularly serves, and they seek
"entertainment" and excitement in all the wrong places.
Guess where they end
They get involved with
dark spiritual forces mostly out of ignorance, or thinking
that it's some sort of "game", or just "having fun", until
their lives become a living hell...
That, however, DOES
NOT MEAN they are cursed.
What it does mean is
that they've given license to some "ruler of the darkness
of this world" to wreak havoc in their lives.
Is there a solution?
Yes. We'll discuss
that in the next message.
TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 4,
Spiritual authority, contrary
to what we've all seen and heard, IS NOT SHOUTING at
the devil, evil spirits, or "demons".
Spiritual authority IS
NOT appropriating for ourselves a religious title like
"Apostle" so and so, or "Bishop" so and so...
There have been titles
galore, as high as it gets on the ecclesiastic echelons, with
NO AUTHORITY over a gnat, let alone over Satan.
Not to mention the
many clowns running around with FANCY SELF-APPROPRIATED
TITLES who are themselves HELD CAPTIVE by the devil (2
DOES NOT come from owning fancy buildings, having large
congregations or being on Kristian TV.
Spiritual Authority is
NOT reading an endless litany of "caveats" lest some "evil
spirit" find a loophole to circumvent our authority.
Those who engage in
such abominable practices ARE NOT OPERATING IN FAITH, but
They NEED DELIVERANCE
THEMSELVES BEFORE they
can exercise any authority over spirits, Christian
congregations, or anyone else.
Spiritual Authority is
NOT engaging in "warfare" with Satan or demons:
If you REALLY HAD authority you would
NOT NEED TO FIGHT ANY "WAR".
You'd simply ISSUE
AN ORDER and YOUR SUBJECTS - those UNDER Christ's-YOUR
Authority - those that He ALREADY CONQUERED - and
placed under your feet, WOULD HAVE
TO obey (Romans 16:20; Ephesians 1:18-23).
No ifs ands or buts.
Spiritual authority does
not come from OUTSIDE, but from INSIDE.
It doesn't come from
WHAT WE DO, but from WHAT,
and IN WHOM, we FIRMLY believe.
If you're NOT
THOROUGHLY and 100% CONVINCED -
deep in your heart, beyond
any and ALL DOUBT - that Jesus ALREADY fought ALL the
battles for us and OVERWHELMINGLY WON, you HAVE NO
you are thoroughly CONVINCED, in your mind and deep
down IN YOUR HEART, that
Jesus already FOUGHT AND OVERWHELMINGLY WON EVERY SINGLE
BATTLE FOR US, YOU HAVE NO SPIRITUAL AUTHORITY.
If you think that YOU
STILL HAVE TO FIGHT "your own" battles against Satan and
evil spirits, YOU HAVE NO
FAITH, AND NO SPIRITUAL AUTHORITY.
You are DOUBLE-MINDED and
UNSTABLE, and God's Word says YOU WON'T GET ANYTHING
from the Lord (James 1:7-8).
You can shout at Satan
all you want, bind all the demons and spirits you want, do
all the "warfare" you want, and fight all the battles you

get your butt kicked EACH AND EVERY TIME (James 1:6).
You know how some
animals can detect when humans are afraid of them?
Satan KNOWS and
can DETECT who has TOTAL CONFIDENCE (faith) in the INNER
Jesus, and who operates IN FEAR.
The creep KNOWS who IS
REALLY CONVINCED of Jesus' TOTAL VICTORY and who ISN'T.
And UNLESS YOU KNOW
THAT CHRIST IS IN YOU, and
that He has ALL AUTHORITY in heaven and on earth, Satan
will kick your sorry religious butt from here to Timbuktu,
time and again (Acts 19:13-16; 1 Peter 5:8-9).
Spiritual Authority comes
from the Spirit of God, the written Word of God and THE
INNER Christ (Matthew 4:4, 7, 10; 12:28; 28:18).
Authority comes from Spirit
of God, the written Word of God and THE INNER Christ.
It doesn't come from

Our Authority comes
from the Spirit WITHIN, who IS Christ:
From Christ Himself.
Spiritual Authority is
simply ALLOWING THE INNER

It's STANDING on His
Victory and TRUSTING Him ALONE:

BATTLE OF THE HYMNS
Here's a classic
example of the double-talk and confusion that go on in
Christian circles and worship centers:
On the one hand you
have the traditional hymn "Onward
Christian Soldiers" which says we are to go "forward
into battle" and "marching as to war".
On the other hand we
have the Bill and Gloria Gaither contemporary Christian
song "It is finished" that says "It is finished, the
battle is over. It is finished, there'll
be no more war".
Which do you believe?
are in DIRECT CONTRADICTION of each other.
both be true.
Yet Christians sing
They sing the hymn,
then CONTRADICT THEMSELVES by singing the song.
Then you wonder WHY
THEY'RE SO CONFUSED.
And I'm not talking
about someone who just got saved last week, or last month,
or a year ago.
I'm talking about
people who've been saved for
30, 40 or 50 years.
Yet they don't
really know WHAT they believe.
Of course, I thank God
that at least they're saved.
But their faith is
feeble and hanging by a thread because
there's NO CLEAR TEACHING, about what Jesus did.
NO DEEPLY ROOTED CONVICTION based on PERSONAL experiential
KNOWLEDGE OF God's Holy Word.
It's just a hymn...
Yeah well... unfortunately,
most Christians know more about HYMNS THAN ABOUT THE BIBLE, simply
because they sing them over and over at worship services,
whereas they hardly ever OPEN the Bible.
So, if the hymn gets
it wrong, THEY get it wrong.
Just for the record,
Bill and Gloria GOT IT RIGHT.
I just wish that more
of their Pentecostal peers would heed the lyrics that
"the battle IS OVER" and that "there'll be NO MORE WAR" and
STOP SPREADING the abominable "spiritual warfare" nonsense.
I love you, Salvation
Army, I'm grateful for every soul you've brought to
knowledge of the Savior, and I'm sure you meant well by
adopting "Onward Christian Soldiers" as your official hymn.
Just like I'm sure
that Sabine Baring-Gould, bless her confused heart, meant
well when she wrote the lyrics in 1865.
BUT THE LYRICS of that
hymn ARE WRONG.
And the Church needs
to get CLEAR, UNDIVIDED
VISION of just how COMPLETE Jesus' Redemption is (praise
We need CLEAR
UNDERSTANDING of HOW THOROUGH
and DECISIVE His victory over Satan was and is.
NOTHING for us to do except receive Him into our hearts and

HOPELESS: because if Church history proves anything is
that WE SCREW UP EVERYTHING WE TOUCH.
We can't even agree ON
THE PROPER WAY TO BAPTIZE new believers -- never mind it's
been in our Bibles for the past 3.500 years -- and
YOU THINK WE'RE QUALIFIED TO DO "BATTLE" against Satan?
Give me a religious
I'm no big fan of
traditional hymns or of contemporary Christian music, but

SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 1,
The doctrine of
so-called British Israelism has been around for a long
time. It was INVENTED in the 17th century by British
heretics, and popularized in the 50's thru 80's by that
infamous false prophet named Herbert W. Armstrong, who is
now in the flames of hell.
I've been dealing with
it, debating the misguided fanatics who follow this lunacy,
and DENOUNCING IT, for a LONG time.
British Israelism is
ONE OF THE MANY MYTHS that come to us under the guise of
They have religious
infomercials on TV which CLAIM to teach "Bible prophecy".
Again I ask, HOW can
something BE "Bible
prophecy" WHEN IT'S NOT FOUND
IN the Bible?
There are many
denominations that promote Armstrong's lies to UNSUSPECTING
Christians, like the so-called "United Church of God"
(UCG), the so-called "Restored Church of God" (RCG) or the
so-called Philadelphia Church of God (PCG), as
well as their current FALSE PROPHETS like Gerald Flurry and

The false doctrine of
British Israelism basically states that ONLY
English speaking people are the TRUE Israelites mentioned
in the Bible and that Queen Elizabeth II, or whichever
monarch occupies the British throne, is a direct descendant
of King David.
There is NOTHING in
the ENTIRE Bible that supports, let alone PROVES, such
Likewise, there is
NOTHING in credible, reputable, DOCUMENTED secular history

of Israel -- namely Benjamin and Judah -- WERE MOST
The TWO tribes in the
Kingdom of Judah were taken into exile by the Babylonians
in 586 B.C., but THEY
RETURNED TO ISRAEL 70 years later as both the Bible and
secular history confirm (Jeremiah 29:10; Daniel 9:2;
Nehemiah chapters 1,2).
They are just as Israelite as
the other 10 tribes. And they, together with some
Levites, comprise most of the population of the modern
State of Israel, WITHOUT THE SLIGHTEST DOUBT.
Indeed, God PROMISED
that He would always leave ONE TRIBE, Judah, intact "for
David's sake" (1 Kings 11:13, 32; 2 Kings 8:19).

as God predicted in Daniel 9:25 and as

BIBLICAL TRUTH TOTALLY DEBUNKS their very FLAWED, elitist
NO ONE denies that 10
of the 12 tribes, were taken captive by the Assyrians in
Where exactly those 10 tribes are today is
KNOWN ONLY to God.
The world has lost
track of them, God hasn't.
God PROMISED that
Messiah, and ONLY THE MESSIAH, will reunite the 12
tribes in the Land of Israel, and resettle them in their
ancient estates (Ezekiel 36:22-28).
God ALSO PROMISED that
when the Messiah reigns, He and HE ALONE, will determine
who's a true Israelite and who isn't (Ezekiel 37:4-14).
Armstrong ISN'T the
HAS NO RIGHT WHATSOEVER to determine who is a true
Israelite and who isn't.
Anglo-Saxon Israelism, IS NOT ONLY SUPREMELY ARROGANT AND
RACIST, IT LACKS ANY BIBLICAL OR HISTORICAL BASIS.
Cases in point: in
recent years there have been Israelites from places like
Ethiopia and India coming back into Israel because they
have a long-standing tradition of being descendants of one
of the 10 "lost" tribes.
In Spain and Portugal
there are millions of people who descend from one or more
of the so-called "10 lost tribes".
It's HISTORIC FACT
that many displaced Israelites relocated to, and
flourished, in Spain and Portugal, at least until the
Spanish Inquisition in 1478, and until they were kicked out
of Spain in 1492.
