Twelve verses later,
in verse 14, he pointedly states that

perfect Sacrifice, SHOULD HAVE NO MORE CONSCIOUSNESS OF

And what do we find
ALL OVER Christendom today?
Nothing but SIN
Christians living in
fear of CONDEMNATION, when God's Word says there's
NOW NO CONDEMNATION for us! (Romans 8:1)
ANTICIPATING consciously, subconsciously, or both,
"punishment" from God for
what they've done, are doing, or will do.
When Jesus HAS
REMOVED ALL OUR SINS as far
as the east is from the west (Psalm 103:12).
When He FOREVER
destroyed sin and removed ALL sin for ALL time (John 1:29;
Romans 8:31-35; Hebrews 9:12,26; 1 John 1:7; 3:5).

brought fear into this world.
Fear, in turn, is a
spirit, and it opens the door to Satan and his
principalities to CLOBBER us.
Jesus has NOT given us the
spirit of fear (2 Timothy 1:7)
And Jesus has
NOT GIVEN US sin consciousness.
Religion has FILLED
US with sin consciousness and fear, and then, when Satan
beats the daylights out of us, adds
insult to injury by telling us that it's all "our fault",
because we "lack faith" or "haven't given enough".
I've actually heard
so-called word of faith preachers teach we should have no
more sin consciousness one minute (that part IS correct),
then turn right around, CONTRADICT THEMSELVES, and PROMOTE
SIN CONSCIOUSNESS by telling believers that if they don't
pay 10% of their incomes to organized religion ("tithe"),
they're ROBBING God and under a curse.
Well, if "robbing"
God ISN'T sin, I'd like to know what it is.
And if it isn't, why
would it bring A CURSE?
Such teaching is
A FOUL LIE.
And Jesus told us
very clearly WHO the father
of lies is (John 8:44).
that when I share these things, I'm not just preaching to
you, but to myself.
We've ALL been
victimized by religion.
It's time for us to
make up our minds ONCE AND FOR ALL:
Did Jesus REMOVE ALL
SIN FOR ALL TIME, or DIDN'T
after Scripture that says He
did (John 1:29; Romans 8:31-35; Hebrews 9:12,26; 1
John 1:7; 3:5).
If He did, we're
saved and MADE PERFECT, NOW MATTER HOW we act EXTERNALLY.
If He did, we need to
repent of sin consciousness (which is SIN, in and of
itself) and ERADICATE IT FROM OUR THINKING and from our
If He didn't, you, me
and the entire world is hopelessly lost, without ANY HOPE
of redemption, ever.
Those are the ONLY
1. Sin and fear,
which mean that Satan WINS and we are helpless to overcome
him, and forever doomed.
2. Or EVERLASTING
RIGHTEOUSNESS, SINLESSNESS and trust (no fear), which
mean that JESUS FOREVER WON.
All of us need to
make up our minds.
We need to become
deeply rooted and grounded in this great Truth, then
believe, speak and act accordingly.

LIVING IN GRACE
We are SAVED BY
Grace is A
GIFT (Ephesians 2:8-9).
Grace is the
UNCONDITIONAL Love and GOODNESS of God which we can
It's God's Grace that
saves us when we (also by Grace) receive
His Gift of FREE SALVATION through
Jesus' death, Resurrection and Ascension, into our hearts.
we ARE saved by Grace, we are to live our lives, moment to
moment, day by day, in God's marvelous Grace.
evangelical denominations that teach (thank God they do!)
to BE SAVED by Grace, DO NOT
teach HOW TO LIVE in Grace.
Grace is THE
BEGINNING of the Christian walk. It
is NOT the END thereof.
God's Grace is
as eternal as God Himself.
His Grace IS
SUFFICIENT to save us FOR ALL ETERNITY (2 Corinthians
If it is sufficient
to save us from spiritual death (glory to Jesus!) IT'S
ALSO SUFFICIENT FOR EVERYTHING ELSE.
If it's SUFFICIENT to
save us from OUR BIGGEST "problem" (sin), it's
MORE THAN SUFFICIENT to deliver us from LESSER ones.
If God's Grace is
MORE THAN SUFFICIENT to save us FOR ETERNITY, surely
it's also more than SUFFICIENT for us to live in, and to
"save" our TEMPORARY lives here on earth.
Since Grace is for
eternity, then we should welcome God's Grace not only with
regards to personal Salvation, but into
every aspect and area of our lives.
As believers, we are
to REMAIN in His Grace, and
TRUST His Grace, with regards to every situation and
His Grace DOESN'T
STOP when we give our hearts to Jesus. His
Grace NEVER ENDS!
Why am I focusing on
this Truth today?
Because many of us
come from religious backgrounds.
religion, including all forms of Christianism, IS FEAR
that preach Grace, preach it ONLY with regards to
Salvation of the soul, but
preach fear and condemnation with regards to everything
I'll use my own life
I was brought up in a
VERY RELIGIOUS home.
We loved Jesus. We
did our best to honor and obey Jesus.
But we DID NOT TRUST
His Grace with regards to Salvation, or ANYTHING ELSE.
Ours was (by human
standards) a "good, moral, decent, honorable" God-fearing
It was also a
My parents, both of
whom (praise Jesus!) are with Him, and whom I hope to see
very soon, simply DIDN'T KNOW BETTER.
And even when I got
saved, and when they (sometime later) got saved, and
sought Jesus by congregating with various "groups" and
denominations, THE FEAR OF
Divine "PUNISHMENT" for sin was still VERY MUCH present,
regularly taught and, worse, PROMOTED.
The result? Fear
(lack of trust in God's Grace), which in turn opened the
door to Satan.
And he pummeled me
mercilessly FOR YEARS.
When I was being
BEATEN TO A PULP and NEARLY DESTROYED by the enemy, I
found, much to my dismay, that
Christians, all the myriad forms of Christianism invented
by man, and even Messianic Judaism, HAD NO ANSWERS.
Worse, they were THE
MAIN CULPRITS of the seemingly hopeless situation in which
I found myself.
Oh, they COULD sing
boring, vacuous religious songs...
They COULD PRETEND to
"bind" and "loose", but they
had no more spiritual authority than a gnat.
It was then that I
became totally disillusioned with the Christian superstar
system that religion has also invented.
It was then when I
learned that I had been taught, for the most part, WRONG,
It was then that
I came to the stark realization that those who pass
themselves off as "spiritual giants" in front of
television screens or congregations, are really spiritual
midgets, who have no more SPIRITUAL AUTHORITY, or
faith, than the average sinner walking down the street.
But at least ONE good
thing came out after all those years of seemingly ENDLESS
misery: it FORCED ME to seek
God ON MY OWN.
It forced me to spend
HOURS ON END, often round the clock, communing with Jesus
in spirit and studying His written Word.
I began to see the
Bible for the first time in a brand new light, without ANY
conscious preconceived notions:
Not what man-invented
religion, or man-invented institutions says that "He
says", but WHAT God REALLY SAYS.
Living in Grace is an
area in which, I must confess, I have struggled mightily.
Over time, with much
dedication and practice, I've improved enormously at it,
but I still struggle with it from time to time...
It's an area (thank
you, Jesus) in which I'm
still learning and REPENTING.
To repent means to CHANGE
THE WAY WE THINK.
We are to live
in, and stay in, His Grace ALL THE TIME.
When we STEP OUT OF
Grace, when we HAVE MORE TRUST in what Satan can do, what
mortals can do, OR WHAT WE
OURSELVES CAN DO, we place ourselves in DIS-GRACE.
And, sure enough,
DISGRACE will follow.
God is able to make ALL
GRACE ABOUND (overflow) towards you (2 Corinthians
If you get nothing
else from this message, please GET THIS:
If God's Grace is
powerful enough to save our souls FOREVER, it's
also powerful enough to "save us"... FROM EVERYTHING ELSE.

DESIRE OF NATIONS
"For thus says the
LORD of hosts; Yet once, in a little while, and I
WILL SHAKE THE HEAVENS, AND THE EARTH, AND THE SEA, AND
THE DRY LAND;
WILL SHAKE ALL NATIONS, and THE DESIRE OF ALL NATIONS
SHALL COME: and I WILL FILL THIS HOUSE WITH GLORY,
saith the LORD of hosts... THE
GLORY OF THIS LATTER HOUSE SHALL BE GREATER THAN OF THE
FORMER"... (Haggai 2:6-7, 9).
If we want a recap of
what God does from Revelation 6:12 to the end of
Revelation chapter 7, THIS is it.
Haggai wrote his
prophecy in the 6th century B.C. when the Jews built their
second temple, the first having been destroyed some 70
years earlier by the Babylonians.
The previous temple
had been built by Solomon and, by all accounts, was
magnificent in wealth and splendor.
temple seemed insignificant by comparison: so much so,
that Jews who had seen the first temple wept
at the mental contrast between the two.
Yet God promised
through His prophet that this
comparatively insignificant edifice WOULD SURPASS the
first temple in glory.
What Jews back then
couldn't foresee is that God would eventually move King
Herod (who excelled as a master builder, if on nothing
else) to enlarge it and
refurbish it and make it ready for God's arrival.
True to His Word, the
Lord Himself would enter that temple some 546 years later
and throw out the money changers that engaged in
religious trafficking saying they'd turn His House into "a
den of thieves" (Matthew 21:12-13).
A couple years later,
He would preach His "Bread of Life" sermon at that same
What really made the
Second Temple exceed the first in glory was not the famed
Herodian stones or architecture, but the
fact that God Himself entered its courts.
However, I submit
that while Haggai's prophecy came true with regards to the
Second Temple, the prophecy
has a more complete and final APPLICATION to OUR PRESENT
"Martel, are you
nuts? There hasn't been a temple in Jerusalem for 1944
years, you've said so yourself".
Yes, and what did
Stephen say in Acts 7:48?
Most High DWELLS NOT in temples MADE WITH HANDS". See
also Hebrews 9:11.
That's why Jesus only
VISITED the Second Temple. He never LIVED there: Never
made it His PERMANENT residence.
The PRESENT Temple of God
NOT made with hands:
It is US, His
Church, made up of ALL individuals IN WHOM Jesus
PERMANENTLY LIVES (1 Corinthians 3:16-17).
God's Glory will fill THIS
temple (His Church) AND
WILL FAR EXCEED ANYTHING ever seen in the First and Second
Temples COMBINED. Glory to Him for evermore!
"THE GLORY OF THIS
LATTER HOUSE" SHALL INDEED
BE "GREATER THAN that OF THE FORMER".
Before the Rapture will
come THE GLORY.
Jesus' APPEARING is
both our ascension into Him, who is manifested in us, and
THIS temple wasn't
built by Solomon or by Herod, BUT
BY JESUS HIMSELF.
THIS temple wasn't
built on Mount Moriah (Matthew 16:18) but ON

As is the earthy, such are they also that are earthy: and as
is the heavenly, such are they also that are heavenly.
And as we have borne
the image of the earthy, WE
SHALL ALSO BEAR THE IMAGE OF THE HEAVENLY".
Invite Jesus TO ENTER
your heart, and
Salvation and Righteousness are yours...AUTOMATICALLY.

THE REAL ROSH
The Feast of Yom
Teruah commanded in Leviticus 23:24 (a/k/a the Feast of
Trumpets) is NEVER CALLED
Rosh Hashanah in the Bible.
In Leviticus 23:34,
when God established this Feast, it's called Zikron Teruah
(Day of Remembrance).
In Numbers 29:1 it is
called Yom Teruah (Day of Shouting, or Day of Blowing the
The term Rosh
Hashanah meaning "head of the year" or "beginning of the
year" is mentioned ONLY ONCE
in the Bible in Ezekiel 40:1.
That ONE time that it's
mentioned, Rosh Hashanah refers to the BEGINNING OF the
month of Aviv (Nisan) in the spring, NOT to Tishri 1 in
Ezekiel 45:18 and 21

makes it CRYSTAL CLEAR in Exodus 12:2 that the calendar
GIVEN BY Him to the Israelites BEGINS ON Rosh Chodesh Aviv
(Nisan), NOT on Rosh Chodesh Tishri.
There is NO BIBLICAL reason
whatsoever, therefore, to call Yom Teruah "Rosh

Those who call Yom
Teruah "Rosh Hashanah" are
DISOBEYING God, who clearly commanded, IN
THE TORAH,that Aviv was to be THE BEGINNING OF the
year (Exodus 12:2).

Rebellious Jews can

God's true calendar and the rabbinic calendar are NOT one
and the same?
There are, of course,
enough similarities between the two for Jews to recognize

This teaching comes
straight from New Age and is to be rejected.
Nowhere in Scripture
are we told to SEEK VISIONS (Jeremiah 23:25- 32; Ezekiel
13:6, 23; 21:29; 22:28).
God MAY give visions when/as
He chooses. And they're usually prophetic or
revelatory, NOT DEMONIC (Joel 2:28; 2 Corinthians 12:1).
There's ONLY ONE
VISION we need to be seeking, and
which we are commanded in Scripture to seek, and that is
JESUS' FACE (Psalm 27:8; 105:4; 2 Chronicles 7:14;
Daniel 9:3; 1 John 3:2).
Needless to say that,
in addition to asking for donations, all these dubious
"services" are offered FOR A PRICE.
We heard from one
person in particular whose "pastor" was having the
congregation keep "night watches" and SPEND HOURS
supposedly "binding" everything from "witches",
"witchcraft", "caldrons", "pots", "marine witchcraft", all
sorts of "strongmen", "familiar spirits", "water spirits",
"desert spirits", spirits in trees, rocks and hills,
serpentine spirits, ancestral curses, jinx, spells,
covens, cages, embargoes, altars, thrones, curses, demons,
herbalists, dead relatives, and even (I kid you not)
This so-called pastor
is OBSESSED with evil and the occult, in bondage to fear,
and has DIVERTED his
congregation's focus from the GREATNESS AND POWER OF JESUS
to imaginary curses, witches and demons.
Evidently, he has
MORE FAITH in such things (which are, for the most part,
IMAGINARY) than in Jesus'
Spirit, Name and Blood.
The day Satan has
more power to curse than Jesus has to bless, TO DESTROY
ALL OF SATAN'S WORKS, AND TO PROTECT AND DELIVER HIS
CHILDREN FROM ALL CURSES, will be the day that hell
literally freezes over (1 John 3:8).
Even if we give these
individuals THE BENEFIT OF THE DOUBT and ASSUME they're
real born-again believers, they're VERY CONFUSED , IN
BONDAGE TO FEAR, and need deliverance THEMSELVES.
Therefore, they're in
NO POSITION to lead or pastor ANYONE.
Jesus already told us
what happens when the blind LEAD THE BLIND: BOTH END UP
FALLING INTO THE DITCH (Matthew 15:14).
He also warned HIS
OWN DISCIPLES that the hallmark of this final generation
would be RELIGIOUS DECEPTION that would come NOT from
Satan, but from
CHRISTIANS!!! (Matthew 24:4).
If He issued such
warning to Peter, James and John in the first century, HOW
MUCH MORE AWARE of such deception must we be in the 21st
You can read the New
Testament from Matthew to Revelation and YOU WON'T FIND

it is this evil, satanic spirit THAT OPENS THE DOOR to all

then we're in deeper trouble than even I thought.
If you THINK it does,
then our "leaders" (heaven help us) are Miley Cyrus,
Justin Bieber, Beyonce, and Kim Kardashian.
By the same token,
does selling 30 MILLION copies of a "Christian" novel which,
by very definition, is FICTION, make one a leader?
Does it make
one AN EXPERT on eschatology?
Does it even mean
that person was CALLED OF
GOD to teach or minister?
And yet, this is how
most Christians assess "leadership".
This is how the
Church of THIS FINAL generation perceives leadership.
What is TV?
A momentary mirage,
an optical illusion that DECEIVES its viewers into
believing EVERYTHING IT SAYS.
TV DECEIVES people
into thinking that EVERYTHING IT SAYS IS TRUE because they
"saw it" or "heard it" in that mercurial medium.
But Christian TV is
non-profit status that so-called Christian networks claim
for themselves, and enjoy, is one of the greatest
financial gravy trains ever allowed under U.S. law.
Do you HONESTLY think
they don't make A VERY LUCRATIVE LIVING off their

the truth, if they're SO DISHONEST that they can't even

Believers have ended
up following people who are NOT called by God and,
therefore, HAVE NO BUSINESS LEADING THEM.
They have fallen prey
to unbiblical heresies like the "give in order to get",

mockery into which some have turned the gifts of the
Spirit BY IMITATING THEM.

SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 21,
IF LIFE WERE A
If life were a
restaurant, here's what most Christians' lives would sound
Monday: Let me have some
work (what other choice do I have?), some Dancing with the
Stars, some internet and two sides of You Tube.
Tuesday: Let me have a
bit more work (what other choice do I have?) and some more
Dancing With the Stars (after all, WHO GOT ELIMINATED will
matter so much six months from now...), some American
Idol, and a bit of porn to wash it all down.
Wednesday: Let me keep
up with the Kardashians, some "Christian" opinion forum,
10 YouTube videos, and some Kristian TV for dessert.
Thursday: I'll have some
football, some Bachelor or Bachelorette, 8 Kristian
Websites and more YouTube.
Friday: It's Friday, let
me have a movie with all kinds of explicit sex, profanity,
and violence. A bit of porn to take home, and then I'll
watch that televangelist circus act for half an hour.
Saturday: Let me have
two orders of college football with some booze (If you're
Adventist substitute with three hours of Ellen White
worship), a super-sized order of internet and three
helpings of YouTube.
Sunday: Bring me some
brunch, some NFL, a movie, and... oh,
wait... it's Sunday, I'll have A LITTLE JESUS on the side.
Although Jesus' Name
is mentioned, what you actually get on Sunday is A SHOT OF
RELIGION on the side.
We have NO RIGHT to
call Him "Lord" when we have
so many other "priorities" AHEAD OF Him.
We have NO RIGHT to
call ourselves "Christian" when we have SO
MANY OTHER "GODS" BEFORE Him.
Jesus MUST BE #1 in our
lives. ALL THE TIME!
Jesus MUST COME BEFORE
EVERYTHING -- AND EVERYONE -- ELSE.
Now, put down that
Big Mac, ask Jesus into your heart, AND OPEN YOUR BIBLE!!!
As we get closer to
the Rapture and tribulation, it's time to re-examine the
role of the 144,000 Jews mentioned in Revelation 7:1-8,
and again, in Revelation 14:1-5.
First let me tell you
who THEY AREN'T:
1. They are NOT
Seventh Day Adventists.
I don't care how many
INVENTED "visions" Ellen White claimed to have had.
CONTRADICT SCRIPTURE, they're NOT of God.
2. They are NOT
so-called Jehovah's Witnesses.
God won't seal their
foreheads UNLESS they have His Seal IN THEIR HEARTS (2
Corinthians 1:22; Ephesians 1:3; 4:30).
3. They are NOT any
New Age sect.
The Bible makes it
crystal clear that they are NATURAL ISRAELITES who receive
Jesus as Savior and God.
They are from THE
TRIBES OF Israel:
tribe of Judah 12,000 were sealed,
tribe of Reuben 12,000,
tribe of Gad 12,000,
tribe of Asher 12,000,
tribe of Naphtali 12,000,
tribe of Manasseh 12,000,
tribe of Simeon 12,000,
tribe of Levi 12,000,
tribe of Issachar 12,000,
tribe of Zebulon 12,000,
tribe of Joseph 12,000,
tribe of Benjamin 12,000" (Revelation 7:1-8).
You can't possibly
say it ANY CLEARER.
UNLESS one of the
three LYING SECTS mentioned above can PROVE they are
NATURAL descendants from one of these Israelite tribes,
THEY DON'T QUALIFY.
They can say that
THEY are the 144,000 until their MENDACIOUS FACES TURN
PURPLE, GREEN AND RED, THEY ARE NOT THE 144,000 AND,
furthermore, they're CONTRADICTING GOD.
That means that THEY
In addition to being
from the 12 tribes, the 144,000 are:
1. ALL MALE VIRGINS
2. NO LIE was found
in the mouths (Revelation 14:5).
Which mean they speak
THE TRUTH (the TRUE Gospel of Jesus), which AUTOMATICALLY
DISQUALIFIES those three lying sects who preach a FALSE
"gospel" and, thus, ARE ACCURSED (Galatians 1:8).
3. They are WITHOUT
FAULT before the Throne of God (Revelation 14:5).
Since THE ONLY WAY to be
"WITHOUT FAULT" before the Throne of God is to KNOW JESUS
and be credited His Righteousness (Romans 3:10; 2
Corinthians 5:21), this automatically disqualifies ALL
THREE OF THE LYING SECTS MENTIONED ABOVE WHO TRUST THEIR
OWN "righteousness" (Isaiah 64:6).
4. They "follow the
Lamb WHEREVER He goes" (Revelation 14:4).
5. They are "first
fruits unto God and to the Lamb" (Revelation 14:4).
6. They are sealed
unto the Lord even as the Church is being raptured
How, exactly, are
THEY SEALED on their foreheads?
With the Spirit of
God and the MIND OF CHRIST (1 Corinthians 2:15-16; 2
Corinthians 1:22; Ephesians 1:13; 4:30).
MAY be the fulfillment of Ezekiel 9:4 where Jews in
Jerusalem are sealed on their foreheads with the Hebrew
letter tav which looks LIKE A CROSS.
is the PURPOSE OF the 144,000 thousand, and HOW LONG do
they stay on earth?
We know they remain
AT THE VERY least during the first 5 months of tribulation
while the fifth trumpet judgment and first "woe" is going
on (Revelation 9:4-5).
The use of the word "first
fruits" in Revelation 14:4 indicates they are on earth for
about THE FIRST YEAR OF the 3½-year tribulation.
Although the Bible
does not say in so many words what their purpose is, it's
reasonable to infer from the biblical text that at least
PART of their purpose is to share the Gospel with fellow
Israelites and encourage them to stand firm in the midst
of coming trials.
It's significant that
ONLY AFTER they are raptured into the heavenly realm, God
sends AN ANGEL for the FIRST TIME EVER to preach the
Gospel, which would indicate that, except for the Two
Witnesses, there are no humans available to preach it,
either because they have been raptured, are hiding, or
have been killed (Revelation 14:6).
The 144,000 natural
Israelites are SUPERNATURALLY protected and emerge from
the tribulation unscathed.
There's a special
rapture for them from Mount Zion, Jerusalem, in Revelation
14:1 shortly after the reign of Antichrist begins.
This, if nothing
else, PROVES that God hasn't
lost track of the so-called "10 lost tribes".
He knows EXACTLY
where they are, and where EACH MEMBER OF THOSE TRIBES IS.
They may be "lost" to
NOTHING is lost to
God, except those WHO CHOOSE TO BE.
FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 19,
Why is it that
Christians feel THE NEED to say they "agree" or "disagree"
with some teaching?
Does your "agreeing"
make the teaching true?
"disagreeing" make it untrue?
THEN, I reiterate,
Those who want to
express disagreement, and can BACK IT UP WITH SCRIPTURE,
quoted IN CONTEXT, have my undivided attention.
Matter of fact, my
policy, since day one, has always been "PROVE IT to me
WITH THE BIBLE, and I'll change the teaching".
Furthermore, if you
prove ANY of these teachings INCORRECT, WITH
THE BIBLE, I will humble myself, issue a public
apology, correct and retract the teaching, and PUBLICLY
GIVE YOU CREDIT for the correction.
In addition, I will
be FOREVER GRATEFUL to you for showing me the Truth.
is NOT what I get.
What I get ARE
Opinions AREN'T PROOF!
Never have been,
never will be.
You can put 50
religious people in a room and get 300 DIFFERENT OPINIONS.
All of them WRONG.
"opinions" will change more often than the weather.
someone tells me they "don't agree" with our teaching, UNLESS
they provide ACCURATE, UNDISTORTED, BIBLICAL reasons, I
DON'T GIVE A FLYING Wallenda!
Your OPINION (and that
of ANY OTHER MORTAL) means
LESS THAN ZERO to this ministry.
I hope that's clear
enough for everyone.
The VERY FEW
individuals who, in the past 10 years, have offered some
biblical reference to make their point, INVARIABLY and
WITHOUT EXCEPTION have taken the Bible TOTALLY out of
context, MISQUOTED IT, quoted ONLY THE PORTIONS THEY LIKE,
or falsely stated that "the Bible says" SOMETHING IT
DOESN'T SAY AT ALL, and DELIBERATELY IGNORED other
That makes those
individuals DISHONEST LIARS.
They cannot deceive
God or me. They ONLY DECEIVE THEMSELVES, and any other
idiot who blindly chooses to believe their idiocy,
because they have a
religious agenda and TOTAL DISREGARD FOR THE TRUTH.
They can "disagree"
until their religious faces turn "PIOUS PURPLE", I won't
budge one micro millimeter.
This ISN'T about
"your" opinion or "my" opinion. It's
about HIS opinion.
You're not the Truth,
I'm not the Truth. Jesus IS.
What GOD SAYS is THE ONLY
THING THAT MATTERS, and THE ONLY THING that will make
this ministry change its teachings.
If you want to make a
point, YOU BETTER USE THE BIBLE and
QUOTE IT ACCURATELY and IN CONTEXT.
Otherwise, no dice.
Word to the wise: DON'T
ATTACK US UNLESS you have STRONG biblical and
spiritual ammunition. We
Glory to Jesus!
Don't tell me you
"disagree" with my teaching....
Don't tell me that
NO SIN CAN DAMN YOU
I thought it was sin
that sent people to hell...
Well, that certainly
is WHAT RELIGION teaches.
It's NOT what Christ teaches.
Jesus PAID FOR EVERY SIN
ever committed, so that we
don't have to pay for it ourselves (John 1:29; Romans
8:2; Hebrews 9:12,26; 1 Peter 2:24; 3:18; 1 John 1:7;
Jesus teaches TOTAL
FORGIVENESS and ETERNAL REDEMPTION for ANY person who will
RECEIVE Him (John
3:16; Hebrews 10:14; Jude 1:24-25).
But you don't know
what I've done...
You don't know HOW
OFTEN I've done it...
DON'T NEED TO KNOW.
Didn't you get what I
WHATEVER you did, are
doing, or will do, JESUS
ALREADY PAID FOR IT!!!
Which part of "Jesus
ALREADY PAID FOR IT" don't you get?
If He PAID FOR IT,
that means YOU DON'T HAVE
Provided, of course,
that YOU INVITE JESUS INTO THE DEEPEST PARTS OF YOUR
BEING, RECEIVE Him as God
and Savior, and ACCEPT His Gift that He paid for ALL
your sins in your place.
Well, then, if He
paid for ALL sins, WHAT
sends people hell?
NOT receiving Christ.
THAT is THE ONLY THING that
will send ANYONE to hell.
You mean it's
NOTHING that we do?
What sends people to
hell is WHAT THEY DON'T do.
RECEIVING what Jesus ALREADY
CAN CHRISTIANS BE
Can Christians be
"demonized" or demon possessed?
The answer is "NO".
means being possessed by a
demon or demons.
In the Bible those
who are "demonized" or possessed by one or more demons invariably
act erratically and are TOTALLY CONTROLLED BY the unclean
spirit(s) (Matthew 17:15; Mark 1:25; 5:1-11; 9:20-26).
Yet today we have
religious charlatans who claim to cast demons OUT OF
You can't BELONG to Jesus
and BELONG TO demons AT THE SAME TIME.
Before Jesus “EVERY
KNEE MUST BOW of things in heaven, in earth and UNDER
THE EARTH” (Philippians 2:10).
If you BELONG TO
Jesus (are saved) that means YOU
ARE HIS POSSESSION, His PERSONAL property.
How can Jesus and
demons SHARE THE SAME PERSON?
Jesus would be a pitiful
Savior if He couldn't PROTECT and KEEP what BELONGS TO
Let alone if He
"shared" ownership with demons.
There isn't a single
example in the Bible of a demonized Christian, because
there's NO SUCH THING.
The doctrine that
BORN AGAIN believers can be demonized is FALSE and
It is AN ABOMINATION
since it paints Jesus as co-ruler of His SPIRITUAL BODY,
His LIVING temples, His Church, with demons.
The fact some
believers ARE PRONE TO lust, alcohol, drugs and other
sinful activities DOES NOT MEAN they are demonized or
It means they ARE
It means that they
walk largely in their unrenewed and unregenerate minds which
are programmed to sin.
And most of this
activity is OF THEIR OWN
CHOOSING and CAUSED BY NO ONE BUT THEMSELVES.
If someone claims he
or she wants deliverance from lust, but keeps WATCHING OR
READING PORN, watching movies with explicit sexual
content, THINKING about it ALL THE TIME and looking at
provocative images, WHAT DO YOU EXPECT?
Your lust IS NOT
BEING CAUSED BY a "demon of lust". It's
being caused BY YOU !!!
STOP blaming "demons"
for everything, and TAKE
PERSONAL RESPONSIBILITY FOR YOUR ACTIONS!
Until our minds are
FULLY renewed by the Appearing of Jesus (Rapture) the
best way to CLEANSE the mind is through the Word of God,
the Spirit of God and the BLOOD OF JESUS.
You have the right
and POWER TO CHOOSE.
If an impure or
lustful thought crosses your mind, YOU HAVE THE ABILITY TO
DWELL ON IT or to CHANGE
YOUR THINKING and DELIBERATELY THINK ABOUT SOMETHING ELSE:
If some lustful
sexual activity appears on your TV screen, YOU HAVE THE
POWER TO CHANGE THE CHANNEL.
Don't give me this
baloney about "demon this" and "demon that".
Demons CAN possess
They CANNOT possess
VALLEY OF THE BONES
"For I would not,
brethren, THAT YOU SHOULD BE IGNORANT OF THIS MYSTERY...
that blindness in part is happened to Israel, until the
fullness of the Gentiles be come in.
And so ALL
Israel SHALL BE SAVED: as it is written, There shall
come out of Sion the Deliverer, and SHALL
TURN AWAY UNGODLINESS FROM Jacob:
For this is MY
COVENANT to THEM, when I
SHALL TAKE AWAY THEIR SINS" (Romans 11:25-27).
ALL ISRAEL SHALL BE
I used to believe
that this referred only to
Israelites who survived the tribulation.
I was wrong.
As the Holy Spirit
recently pointed out, "ALL Israel" means "ALL Israel".
It means ALL 12
It means EVERY
natural Israelite from patriarch Jacob (Israel) to his 12
sons and one daughter, TO THE LAST OF HIS DESCENDANTS.
As I studied Ezekiel
chapter 37 recently, where natural Israelites are depicted
as a valley FULL OF dry bones, the Lord pointed this Truth
out in a BIG WAY.
Ezekiel 37:11 plainly
says they're "the WHOLE HOUSE
Israelites are, after
all, the Chosen People of His Covenant.
This chapter also
says that He will OPEN THEIR
GRAVES and resurrect ALL OF THEM (Ezekiel 37:12-14)
He says it again in
will multiply men on you, ALL the House of Israel,
even ALL OF IT: and the
cities shall be inhabited, and the wastes shall be built".
That's why there are
SO MANY bones in that valley and
why they are SO "VERY DRY" (Ezekiel 37:2):
They've been dead for
A LONG TIME.
He promises the same
thing in Jeremiah 30:18-20:
"This is what the
" ‘I will restore the
fortunes of Jacob's tents and have compassion on his
dwellings; the city will be rebuilt on her ruins, and the
palace will stand in its proper place.
From them will come
songs of thanksgiving and the sound of rejoicing. I
WILL ADD TO THEIR NUMBERS, AND THEY WILL NOT BE DECREASED; I
will bring them honor, and they will not be disdained.
THEIR CHILDREN WILL BE AS IN
DAYS OF OLD, and THEIR COMMUNITY WILL BE ESTABLISHED
He says it again in
"At that time, says
the LORD, I will be the God OF
ALL THE FAMILIES OF Israel, and
THEY SHALL BE MY PEOPLE".
This is tremendous
Think for a moment about
what it means:
EACH AND EVERY Jew
who died during the Holocaust will be raised from the
ALL SIX MILLION OF THEM!
Hitler thought he
could exterminate them. BUT GOD SAYS "they
ARE MY PEOPLE and I WILL BRING THEM BACK and they will
LIVE BEFORE ME".
Glory to Yahweh!
Each and every descendant of
Abraham, Isaac and Israel (Jacob) killed by Egyptians,
Assyrians, Babylonians, Persians, Greeks and Romans will
Each and every Jew
slaughtered during the evil "Crusades" carried out
SUPPOSEDLY (horror of horrors) in the Name of their own
Messiah, the Prince of Peace, WILL COME TO LIFE.
Each and every Jew who
was persecuted, tortured and put to death during the VERY
UNHOLY Inquisition will be raised.
Every Jew murdered by
terrorists in modern times, both in Israel and in other
EVERY JEW WHO EVER LIVED,
Israelites who died and WENT TO HELL under both the Old
and New Testaments will be raised (thank God hell is
TEMPORARY and NOT the lake of fire, which is ETERNAL).
The only exceptions
1) Those that already
rose after Jesus rose and went up to heaven with Him
2) Jews who KNOW
their Messiah, who are not only natural but SUPERNATURAL
(spiritual) Jews, and who
are alive in Jesus and will be caught up when He appears (Romans
2:28-29; Revelation 7:9). And,
3) Judas, the son of
perdition (John 17:12).
ALL THE REST OF THEM
GET RESURRECTED sometime during the Millennium (John 6:40;
Keep in mind, that
there are MANY Israelites across the globe, WHO DON'T EVEN
KNOW they are Israelites.
Their ancestors also
were natural Israelites and DIDN'T know it.
NO ONE knows where
the 10 "lost tribes" are today.
But GOD KNOWS!
And, glory to Him for
His awesome faithfulness, He
will bring them ALL back to life.
ALL ISRAEL: Each and EVERY
ONE OF THEM!
Oh, no! You're
teaching the wrong doctrine of "dual covenant"!
NO. I'M NOT.
Did I say they get
resurrected and saved APART FROM Jesus?
That's what "dual
covenant" teaches, and you're right: IT IS IN ERROR.
There's NO SALVATION FOR
ANYONE - Jew or Gentile -- APART FROM the ONE AND ONLY
SAVIOR: Jesus the Messiah.
Israelites are saved,
like everyone else, through Jesus.
All natural Israelites, at
some point, will come to know and recognize Jesus as THE
ONE AND ONLY God, Savior and Messiah.
Jesus TOOK AWAY ALL
SIN FOR ALL TIME.
That would include
Even those Pharisee
bastards, those "chief priests" WHO PLOTTED REPEATEDLY
AGAINST JESUS, TRIED TO TRICK HIM, DESPISED HIM, REJECTED
HIM, AND DEMANDED HIS CRUCIFIXION, then
added insult to injury by mocking Him as He died on the
cross for their sins and ours...WHO ON
PURPOSE DENIED HIS RESURRECTION, although they can't
explain the empty tomb to this day, and that EVEN
TAMPERED WITH THEIR OWN CALENDAR TO MAKE IT APPEAR AS
THOUGH Jesus DIDN'T fulfill Daniel 9:25-27...
THEY will be
resurrected, taken out of
hell itself, and forgiven...
And I suspect that
THEY'LL FALL ON THEIR FACES in repentance, when they
realize who the Messiah is, HOW MUCH HE LOVES THEM, HOW
FAITHFUL He is DESPITE their arrogance, self-righteousness
and stiff neckedness, and LOVE HIM all the more since "he
who is forgiven much LOVES MUCH" (Luke 7:47).
Oh, the mercy and
Goodness of our God! Oh, HOW GREAT is His FAITHFULNESS!
I've been praising
Him and rejoicing ever since I got this revelation and saw
it in Scripture.
I've cried, I've
laughed, I've (in my heart) jumped up and down.
Glory, glory, glory,
glory, glory, glory, glory to the Father, Son and Holy
Great is your
Faithfulness, Almighty God! Your mercies TRULY ARE NEW
The same chapter
(Ezekiel 37:24-28) promises to reunite ALL 12 TRIBES and
reunite the northern kingdom (Ephraim) to the southern
kingdom (Judah) and that:
"David my servant
SHALL BE KING OVER THEM; and they all shall have one
shepherd: they shall also walk in my judgments, and
observe my statutes, and do them.
And they SHALL DWELL
IN THE LAND that I have given UNTO JACOB MY SERVANT, in
which your fathers have dwelt; and they shall dwell there,
even they, and their children, and their children's
children forever: and my servant David SHALL BE THEIR
Moreover I will make
a covenant of peace with them; it
shall be an everlasting covenant with them: and I will
place them, and multiply them, and will set my sanctuary
in the midst of them forevermore.
My tabernacle also
shall be with them: yea, I
will be their God, and they shall be my people.
And the nations
(natural gentiles) shall know that I the LORD do sanctify
Israel, when my sanctuary shall be in the midst of them
NO WONDER they'll
possess the Land of Promise: from the Euphrates on the
north (parts of Iraq, Syria, Turkey, Lebanon, Jordan, and
a large chunk of Saudi Arabia -- including the real Mount
Sinai) - to the Nile on the south.
THAT larger territory
will be needed to accommodate not only Jews regathered
from the diaspora, but ALL
THE REST OF Jacob's children WHO EVER LIVED.
MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 15,
THE MIDDLE EAST:
WHAT, WHERE, WHEN?
With events in the
Middle East becoming, once again, THE FOCUS of world
attention, it may be helpful to present an overall view
of what is in store for each
nation or ethnic group, according to Scripture.
What is stated below
DOES NOT apply to born-again believers.
Believers from ANY
nation or ethnicity are caught up into Jesus as the
tribulation starts (Revelation 7:9-14).
Those who become
believers during the tribulation are also caught up prior
to the 7 bowl judgments (Revelation 14:15; 15:2).
These are the
final outcomes for each nation during the Millennium:
1. Iran - with the U.S.,
Russia and China largely decimated at start of the
tribulation, Iran will become MOMENTARILY the world's
That is, until the
Antichrist conquers them again, as he did 2,300 years ago
They survive the
tribulation and rebel
against Jesus at the end of the Millennium (Ezekiel
At that point, they
are exterminated (Ezekiel 39:3-6,11).
2. Iraq - blotted out of
the map. All its territory south of the Euphrates will be
part of Eretz Israel. The northwestern part, formerly
called Assyria, will become a nation, once again, during
the Millennium. See #11 below.
That would leave only
the northeastern part (Cush) which will rebel against God
during the War of Gog and Magog, at the end of the
Millennium, and be exterminated (Genesis 10:8-10; Ezekiel
3. Libya - Rebels
against Jesus during war of Gog and Magog and is
exterminated. (Ezekiel 38:5, 39:3-6,11).
4. Turkey - same as
5. Saudi Arabia - its
northern part is given to Israel during the Millennium.
It's southern part
remains faithful to King Jesus and denounces Gog's
invasion against Israel (Ezekiel 38:13).
Palestinians who survive the tribulation are relocated to
southern Saudi Arabia, to mingle with their fellow Arabs,
where they are totally assimilated into its population
6. Syria - Damascus is
destroyed during the tribulation (Isaiah 17:1-2).
portion (north of Euphrates) to become part of Assyria
(see #11 below).
The rest (majority)
of Syria to become part of Eretz Israel during Millennium.
7. Jordan - wiped off
the map. It's entire territory will be part of Eretz
Israel during Millennium.
8. Lebanon - Same as
Jordan, wiped off the map. All of it is given to Israel.
9. "Palestinian" Arabs -
all expelled from Israel and sent to south Saudi Arabia,
never again to be called by the FALSE moniker
"Palestinians" but by their REAL name "Arabs" (Joel
10. Egypt - devastated
during tribulation, but blessed during the Millennium, will
turn to Jesus, worship God and be closely allied to Israel
and Assyria (Isaiah 19:18-25).
11. Assyria - (the
northwestern portion of Iraq, and northeastern Syria) will
be reborn as a nation, worship Jesus, and enjoy a
close and blessed alliance with Israel and Egypt (Isaiah
12. Israel - It's
territory enlarged from the Euphrates on the north, to the
Nile on the south, according to the Promise made by God to
Abraham and his descendants (Genesis 15:18).
The 12 tribes gathered from
all over the globe and resettled into their former
estates (Ezekiel 37:11-14).
will be headquartered in Jerusalem (Isaiah 2:1-5; Joel
3:12, 17; Zechariah 14:1-9, 16).
Jerusalem also to be the
world's Treasury: The wealth of all nations (gentiles)
brought there and administered by Messiah Prince (Isaiah
All Israelites --
from Jacob, his 12 sons and one daughter, to the present
time -- to be resurrected and settled in Eretz Israel,
during the Millennium (Ezekiel 37:11-14; Romans 11:25-26).
To summarize: THE END
of Iran, Iraq, Libya, Turkey, Syria, Jordan and Lebanon is
Except, of course, for
those who receive Christ into their hearts. They
will be raptured along with other believers.
It's good for
Palestinians and Saudis who survive the tribulation.
It's great for Egypt
and re-born Assyria.
It's glorious for
SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 14,
Religious media has
perverted the Christian Message almost beyond recognition.
Instead of exalting
Christ and promoting faith, it exalts THE MESSENGER
and promotes fear.
FEAR that if we don't
give to that televangelist God "won't bless us".
There's NOT A SINGLE
verse from Genesis to Revelation that says something AS
STUPID as that.
FEAR that if we don't
PAY the lying televangelist 10% of our INCOME ("tithe")
God will put a curse ON HIS OWN CHILDREN!!!
You're a sinner. Would
YOU do that to YOUR CHILDREN?
What HORRENDOUS kind
of a "father" would our
HOLY Heavenly Father be if He did that?
And yet this
PERVERSION is taught over and over TO
SCARE the dumb sheep into giving.
Then there's the CULT of the

THE POWER OF GOODNESS
In Romans 12:21 Paul
makes the most astounding and profound statement:
"Don't be overcome by
evil, but OVERCOME EVIL WITH GOOD".
The entire chapter is
A GEM, which deserves to be read, studied, and meditated,
in Spirit, endlessly.
Good has POWER to
Good WILL overcome
evil, EACH AND EVERY TIME.
In fact, despite
appearances to the contrary, evil IS NO MATCH FOR good.
According to Jesus,
there's "NO ONE good, but
God" (Mark 10:18; Luke 18:19).
So, when Paul says to
overcome evil with good, he is actually saying we
overcome evil WITH GOD.
With the God who

prevails is because there's not enough goodness (or
God-ness) in the world.
The reason there's
not enough goodness is because God's children, who are the
ONLY ONES capable of manifesting His Good-ness as well as
His God-ness, AREN'T ALLOWING Him to manifest.
All we've allowed Him
to manifest in us is a drop of goodness here, and a

Tapping into His
Goodness (or His Godness) is not a "push button"
proposition. It involves SEPARATING OURSELVES unto God,
setting all the world's distractions to the side for a
while (people, pets, TV, internet, IPhones, Blackberries,
Facebook, Twitter, etc.), GETTING ALONE with God
somewhere, seeking Him (within us) WITH ALL -- and I mean
ALL -- our hearts, spending time with Him, listening to
Him, being attentive to His promptings.
Manifesting God's Goodness
involves TOTAL, WHOLEHEARTED humility, TOTAL submission to
our Lord, TOTAL dependence ON HIM, and TOTAL TRUST in Him DESPITE
appearances, and DESPITE the reasonings of our flawed,
God's Goodness TRUSTS
God UNCONDITIONALLY even when human "logic" says
To have the LIVING,

MANIFEST, in His temple (you).
We MUST PLUNGE
ourselves and LOSE OUR EGOS (totally and LITERALLY) INTO
Him who is OUR LIFE and our Goodness.
The Book of
Revelation repeatedly makes all kinds of WONDERFUL
PROMISES to those who
He who overcomes "I will
give to eat of the tree of life" (Revelation 2:7)...
... "Will not be hurt at all by the second death"
To him who overcomes, I
will give some of the hidden manna. I will also give him a
white stone with a new name written on it, known only to
him who receives it (Revelation 2:17).
... "TO HIM I WILL
GIVE AUTHORITY OVER THE NATIONS" (Revelation 2:26).
...Will "be dressed
in white. I will never blot out his name from the book of
life, but will acknowledge his name before my Father and
his angels" (Revelation 3:5)
"I will make a pillar
in the temple of my God. Never again will he leave it. I
will write on him the Name of my God and the name of the
city of my God, the new Jerusalem, which is coming down
out of heaven from my God; and I will also write on him my
new Name" (Revelation 3:12).
him who overcomes, I will give the right to sit with
me on my throne, just as I overcame and sat down with my
Father on His throne" (Revelation 3:21).
He who overcomes "will
inherit all things, and I will be his God and he will be
my son" (Revelation 21:7)
It's the Goodness of
God IN US, it's His God-ness IN US, that will OVERCOME the
evil in this world and rapture us.
Good can achieve ALL
THINGS. Good will OVERCOME ALL things.
THE POWER of Good IS
the power OF GOD.

BAPTISM OF FIRE
indicate the removing of what can be shaken... so that
(only) WHAT CANNOT BE SHAKEN may remain.
Therefore, since we are
receiving a kingdom that CANNOT be shaken, let us be
thankful, and so worship God..., for OUR God IS a
CONSUMING FIRE [Hebrews 12:27-29]."
Our God is "a
consuming fire"... these words are usually misquoted by
stern religionists in a premeditated attempt to scare the
living daylights out of believers.
I have taught on the
doctrine of baptisms before, but there's one baptism that
I unintentionally neglected to include: the baptism of
When Jesus approached
John the Baptist to be baptized IN WATER, John said:
"I indeed baptize you
with water to repentance, but He
that comes after me is mightier than I, whose shoes I am
not worthy to bear: He shall baptize you with the Holy
Spirit AND WITH FIRE" (Matthew 3:11).
What IS the baptism
We saw a
manifestation of this baptism on the day of Pentecost,
when the Holy Spirit came INTO the 120 believers in the
Upper Room and sat upon them
as cloven tongues of fire (Acts 2:3).
To experience the
Baptism of Fire, therefore, means to be IMMERSED in the
Divine, purifying Fire of God's Love.
The refining fire of
God's Spirit and Glory (Shekinah) was IMMERSING and
purging their carnal minds in preparation for ministry.
([immersion) WITH FIRE was present, in limited form, THAT
DAY, at the BIRTH of the Church. It will manifest in
UNLIMITED FORM at the Church's coronation (1 Corinthians
Her coronation will
signal her completion. When the Church is CROWNED with the
FIRE OF GOD'S GLORY, she will leave this vaporous earth
realm and be translated into the eternal one.
It's this BAPTISM OF FIRE
that will change us from mortal to immortal, from
corruptible to incorruptible.
(immersion) into God's CONSUMING FIRE will consume ALL the
sinful rubble in our subconscious, thus purifying and
renewing our minds.
When our minds are
purified we will FIND THE WAY BACK TO PARADISE (Jesus'
Presence), which we lost some 6,000 years ago at the
Garden of Eden.
That Way is
the Christ within.
HE IS THE WAY, The
Truth and The Life. NO ONE
goes to the Father except thru Him (John 14:6).
Hear it again: NO
ONE goes to the Father (is Raptured) EXCEPT
Yes, this verse also
applies to being saved. But FULL Salvation is attained
ONLY when we find our Way back to the Eternal Source from
which we came, that Source being God the Father.
THAT'S what the
Rapture is ALL about: returning
or being caught up INTO HIM from Whom we came.
The INNER Christ was,
AND FOREVER IS, the ONLY WAY back to the Father. The ONLY
WAY back to Paradise.
That's why we MUST
INVITE Jesus to enter our hearts and
be born again (connect with the INNER Christ) in
order to ENTER or even SEE God's Kingdom (John 3:3-5).
The Holy Spirit's
PRIMARY function is the
revelation of that INNER Christ IN US.
The Church MUST
--it's an ABSOLUTE MUST-- rely
on the Holy Spirit and COMPLETELY TRUST the Holy Spirit to
MANIFEST as that consuming FIRE that LITERALLY SHOWS US
THE WAY (the inner Christ), and LEADS US to the
manifestation (APPEARING) of the Christ within.
If we REALLY want the
Rapture, THIS is what we must FOCUS ON.
EVERY child of God
MUST consciously, and without FEAR OR RESERVATION, EMBRACE
God's Consuming Fire.
We must NOT fear it, but
We must TRUST it to
totally consume the debris from years of sin as well as
from the false notion of separation from God.
The Rapture is NOT a
"thing". The Rapture is a
That Person is Jesus
Christ and He ALREADY IS within you.
To receive the Truth
of the Rapture is to know Who He is, rather than WHEN it
Seek God's FIRE with
ALL your heart. Don't run from Him. Welcome Him. YIELD TO
Him. His fire is GOOD. His
baptism of fire won't hurt you. HE'LL SAVE YOU... TO THE
CONSUMING Fire of His inner Presence is WHAT WILL transfer
us from this fallen, sinful world BACK INTO HIS PRESENCE.
It's what will enable
us to forever see His Face.
MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 8,
HOW CAN A LOVING GOD
SEND PEOPLE TO HELL?
This is the question
that baffles apologists and is often asked by unbelievers
to "justify" their rejection of Jesus.
The answer is given
"Our God is A CONSUMING
FIRE" (Deuteronomy 4:24; Hebrews 12:29).
Those who receive God
(Jesus) into their deepest parts, and
WELCOME Him and His consuming fire, become
ONE with Him.
God's Divine Nature (2 Peter 1:4).
When we're ONE with the
Fire, and the same Nature as the Fire, His DIVINE fire
does not harm or torment us (Daniel 3:25-27).
Rather, we are
purified and refined by it.
His fire will
gradually consume all the impurities in our lives and,
ultimately, manifest the
very righteousness and immortality of God in us.
His consuming fire WILL
GLORIFY US for all eternity (Exodus 24:17; Ezekiel
WHO RESIST, REJECT or DISMISS THE FIRE OF His Love, who
is Jesus Himself, ARE
TORMENTED BY IT.
And the more they
resist and reject Him, the more they CHOOSE to IGNORE the
fire and PRETEND that He doesn't exist, the
worse and more tormenting He/it will become.
THE SAME LOVE
(consuming fire) that brings believers into eternal life
and joyous ecstasy brings unbelievers, WHO RESIST AND
REJECT Him, TORMENT: existence
in death (i.e., alienated from THE Life).
A hopeless, barren
existence devoid of joy and
of THE VERY LOVE (God, Jesus) and GOODNESS they rejected.

WENT TO THE CROSS so that NO ONE would ever have to
experience the hell of
Humans BRING THAT
HELL and SUFFERING UPON THEMSELVES by
rejecting the Source of ALL BLESSINGS, of ALL GOODNESS, and
of "every good and perfect gift" (Mark 10:18; James 1:17).
The hell they experience is
the manifestation of THEIR OWN UNREGENERATE, EVIL
Repeat: The hell they
experience is the
manifestation of THEIR OWN EVIL, UNREGENERATE HEARTS
hell OF THEIR OWN MAKING.
God, in His infinite
mercy, even allows those in THE VERY HELL THEY CREATED to
repent and turn to Him.
If they embrace His Love
(Jesus), even in hell itself, they won't be in hell
any longer, but will become One with the Fire and pass
from death unto Life (Matthew 12:32; John 5:24; Psalm
They will pass from
torment to euphoria in an instant.
God gives everyone in
hell until THE END of His
1,000-YEAR REIGN ON EARTH to change their minds (repent) (Revelation
When they repent

(regenerate) both their hearts and minds and they will

By His death,
Resurrection and Ascension, Jesus provided ETERNAL
ASSURANCE OF SALVATION to anyone - ANYONE - yes, EVEN YOU - who'll
repent, invite Him into his/her heart and receive Him into
the deepest parts of your being.
Only those WHO OPPOSE
God's Divine Fire are tormented by it.
Jesus is both, heaven and
He IS HEAVEN to those
who love Him.
He becomes hell ONLY
to them WHO REJECT the Fire of His delightful Love, and
the Goodness that comes only from Him.
SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 7,

Franklin Delano Roosevelt uttered these immortal words:
"THE ONLY THING we have
to fear IS FEAR ITSELF."
wisdom and truth in these words uttered by a former
President 81 years ago.
It makes you wonder
what he'd say if he were alive today.
Presently, there's ANOTHER
name for "fear itself" that is heard on a daily basis:
We have all heard the
news about barbaric acts and gruesome murders being
committed by terrorists groups, one group in particular.
But that's NOT where
TERROR BEGINS in
the human mind.
And terrorists KNOW
THIS, that's exactly why
they put out those revolting videos.
TERROR (fear) is an
EVIL spiritual force.
(terror) is AN EVIL
God DOES NOT GIVE US
the spirit of fear because God
HAS NO FEAR (2 Timothy 1:7).
The spirit of fear IS
THE SPIRIT OF SATAN.
Satan's been using
FEAR (terror) against humanity since the Garden of Eden
All forms of fear (terror)
come from him.
It's his spirit of
fear that opens the door for him to bring all manner of
evil into this world and into people's lives.
Since fear is a spiritual
force, IT IS OVERCOME PRIMARILY IN THE SPIRIT realm.
This, of course, is
NO EXCUSE for our government's hesitation and inaction. We
ought to take the necessary practical steps to protect our
people and destroy terrorists militarily, while standing
firm in the Spirit of Divine Love, which CASTS OUT FEAR (1

rearing its ugly head again, and the 13th anniversary of
9/11 coming up, I ask our faithful intercessors and all
believers to pray for America, for God's protection from
evil and acts of terror, for our leaders and our people, pray
that this so-called "Islamic State" be eradicated from the
face of the earth, but most importantly:
Let's join together
in spirit, AND STAND FIRM in
FAITH and Divine LOVE (Jesus) against any form of fear.
Let's adopt this
attitude and stand on Jesus, and on His Perfect Love (put
in our hearts by His Spirit) until we suddenly come Face
to face with our Savior.
Where there's fear,
Satan can carry out his agenda.
Where there's NO FEAR, BUT
LOVE, he can't do anything.

that Satan is NO MATCH for Him.

For, as President
Roosevelt also said:
"We have always held
to the hope, the belief, THE
CONVICTION THAT THERE IS A BETTER LIFE, A BETTER WORLD, BEYOND
GOD’S TRUE SABBATH
Feasts of the Lord are given in Leviticus chapter 23.
They BEGIN WITH the
weekly Sabbath (Leviticus 23:1-3) and END WITH the Feast
of Tabernacles (Leviticus 23:34).
We are grateful to
our Messianic Jewish brothers and sisters for bringing
forth the great truth that Messiah Jesus IS THE
FULFILLMENT OF every one of these Feasts.
He is our Pesach, Hag
HaMatzot, our Shavuot, our Yom Teruah, our Yom Kippur
(Atonement), our Sukkot, AND OUR SABBATH OF REST.
This brings us to
Seventh Day Adventists, Church of God and other

Jesus is the fulfillment of all the aforementioned Feasts,
EXCEPT the Sabbath.
They say that Jesus
IS NOT the fulfillment of the Sabbath.
They deify the
24-hour Sabbath, making comparable to Jesus, by making it
How can a FINITE
24-hour period of time BE ETERNAL?
If it were eternal,
then it wouldn’t LAST ONLY from sundown Friday to the next
That is A
CONTRADICTION in terms and is ALSO A CONTRADICTION OF the
They cite Exodus
31:17 which says that the 24-hour Sabbath is “a sign
between me and the children of Israel for ever”:
UNLESS you happen to
be A NATURAL, unregenerate Israelite, you have NO BUSINESS
observing the weekly Sabbath.
You can rest or
congregate on the Sabbath, if you wish, BUT NO GENTILE
BELIEVER has EVER been required to observe the Sabbath in
any way, shape or form (Acts 15:5-29)).
Israelites, who are born again (saved) ARE NOT REQUIRED to
observe the 24-hour Sabbath, since they’re NO LONGER
“children of Israel”, but CHILDREN OF GOD, who live under
THEIR FATHER’S AMAZING Grace.
So, the first
question we ask Sabbatarians is: TO WHICH of the 12 tribes
of Israel do you belong?
The second, a most
important question is: Do you intend to REMAIN
UNREGENERATE (UNSAVED) forever?
Because the Sabbath
and the other Feasts will be observed BY NATURAL HUMANS
during the Millennium (Isaiah 66:23; Zechariah 14:16).
The Church will be glorified and THERE’S NO TIME IN THE
ETERNAL REALM, hence no 24-hour weekly Sabbath.
Brothers and sisters,
there’s NOTHING WRONG with RESTING on the weekly Sabbath.
There’s NOTHING WRONG
with CONGREGATING on the weekly Sabbath.
I’ve done both quite
WHAT IS WRONG is to
BELIEVE that observing that 24-hour unit of time MAKES US

that observing the 24-hour Sabbath makes them righteous

righteousness “of our own”.
righteousness we can EVER HOPE TO HAVE, is Jesus’
All the Feasts
(including the Sabbath) are commanded in the same chapter.
All the Feasts have their ULTIMATE FULFILLMENT in Christ.
We can’t say that He
is our Passover, our Unleavened Bread, our Pentecost, our
Day of Shouting, our Atonement and Tabernacle(s) and say
HE IS NOT our Sabbath.
That is why in
Colossians 2:16-17 Paul very clearly says that the weekly
Sabbath is A MERE SHADOW.
Because shadows are
NOT THE REAL thing. Shadows are TEMPORARY, NOT
ETERNAL, hence NOT REAL.
In those verses Paul
also specifically says that THE REAL THING, THE REAL BODY
that casts that shadow, the body that 24-hour shadow
REPRESENTS is Christ Himself.
All who love the
24-hour Sabbath, SHOULD LOVE AND APPRECIATE THE ETERNAL
SABBATH, CHRIST JESUS, FAR MORE.
Jesus, and Jesus
ALONE is our ETERNAL REST (Matthew 11:28; Hebrews 4:10)

24-hour unit of time to be righteous in God’s eyes, you

ETERNAL Sabbath (Jesus,
and JESUS ALONE) AND REST CONFIDENTLY on His work of
Salvation, you’ll be saved.
Sabbatarians, wake up!
TRUST THE REAL AND ETERNAL SABBATH WHO IS JESUS.
The rest ARE NOT REAL
Sabbatarians: Just SELF-DECEIVED religionists.
FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 5,
BATTLE FOR JERUSALEM
"The Day of the
LORD is coming, Jerusalem, when YOUR
POSSESSIONS WILL BE PLUNDERED AND DIVIDED UP WITHIN YOUR
I will gather ALL THE
NATIONS to Jerusalem TO FIGHT AGAINST IT; THE CITY
WILL BE CAPTURED, THE HOUSES RANSACKED, AND THE WOMEN
HALF OF THE CITY
WILL GO INTO EXILE, but the rest of the people will not be
taken from the city" (Zechariah 14:1-2).
All who love
Jerusalem dislike this grim prophecy about the Holy City.
If we didn't know
that its occupation by gentile forces will last only 42
months, -- and were that
bleak passage not followed by Jesus' return and the
establishment of His eternal Kingdom -- it would be
unbearable to read or even consider.
This will happen very
There's no way of
getting around it.
Of course, residents
of Jerusalem and Israeli citizens in general can avoid
these awful events by taking refuge in the Judean
wilderness (southeast of Jerusalem) when they see trouble
Better yet, they
can receive the Messiah into their hearts right now and
NOT be on earth when Jerusalem is taken.
The Scripture is
clear that HALF its population will be exiled, the other
half allowed to remain there.
Even those who
survive the invasion and stay in the city won't have a
very easy time.
And many more will flee into
the desert when the abomination of desolation is placed in
the third temple (Matthew 24:15).
However, I want to
highlight some information mentioned in Zechariah chapter
12 that's been getting my attention for a while, namely
that when Armageddon
happens, some residents of Jerusalem and of Judea will
fight against Antichrist and his forces.
It's not like Jesus
needs any help. We know Antichrist is INSTANTLY defeated.
Gentiles will occupy
Jerusalem for 42 months, and then try to DESTROY IT ahead
of Jesus' Return.
The Bible doesn't
specify the reason WHY they would want to destroy the Holy
City, but it doesn't take a genius to figure out their
rationale that, if they destroy it, Jesus won't be able to
rule from it, as so many prophecies foretell (Isaiah
2:3-4; Jeremiah 31:31-40).
At that point, Jews
will COME OUT OF THEIR HIDING PLACE and fight TO PROTECT
JERUSALEM from being destroyed.
They will be
supernaturally protected and emboldened
by the imminent return of Him who, by then, they will have
come to recognize as their Messiah:
declares: "I am going to make Jerusalem a cup (basin) that
sends all the surrounding peoples reeling. Judah will be
besieged as well as Jerusalem.
On that day, WHEN ALL
THE NATIONS OF THE EARTH ARE GATHERED AGAINST HER, I
will make Jerusalem AN IMMOVABLE ROCK FOR ALL THE NATIONS.
All who try to move it (carry it away) will be cut to
Then the leaders of
Judah will say in their hearts, "The
people of Jerusalem ARE STRONG, because the LORD Almighty
is their God.'
"On that day I will
make the leaders of Judah like
a firepot in a woodpile, like a flaming torch among
sheaves. THEY WILL CONSUME
ALL THE SURROUNDING PEOPLES RIGHT AND LEFT, BUT JERUSALEM
WILL REMAIN INTACT IN HER PLACE.
7 "The LORD will save
the dwellings of Judah first, SO THAT THE HONOR of the
house of David and of Jerusalem's inhabitants MAY NOT BE
GREATER THAN That of Judah.
that day the LORD WILL SHIELD THOSE WHO LIVE IN Jerusalem,
so that THE FEEBLEST AMONG THEM WILL BE LIKE David, and
the house of David will be like God, like the angel of the
LORD going before them.
9 On that day I will
set out TO DESTROY ALL THE NATIONS THAT ATTACK Jerusalem.
10 And I
will pour out on the house of David and the inhabitants of
Jerusalem a spirit of grace and supplication. THEY WILL
LOOK ON ME, THE ONE THEY HAVE PIERCED, AND THEY WILL
MOURN FOR HIM AS ONE MOURNS FOR AN ONLY CHILD, AND GRIEVE
BITTERLY FOR HIM AS ONE GRIEVES FOR A FIRSTBORN SON.
11 On that day the
weeping in Jerusalem will be as great as the weeping of
Hadad Rimmon in the plain of Megiddo.
12 The land will
mourn, each family by itself, with their wives by
themselves: the clan of the house of David and their
wives, the clan of the house of Nathan and their wives,
13 the clan of the
house of Levi and their wives, the clan of Shimei and
14 and all the rest
of the clans and their wives" (Zechariah 12:1-14).
SHORT-TERM future is rather bleak, but
its Destiny is glorious.
I close with two
beautiful excerpts from Zechariah chapter 14 and Luke
"Then the LORD WILL
GO OUT AND FIGHT AGAINST THOSE NATIONS, as he fights on a
day of battle. On that day
his feet will stand on the Mount of Olives, east of
Jerusalem, and the Mount of Olives WILL BE SPLIT IN
TWO FROM EAST TO WEST, FORMING A GREAT VALLEY, with half
of the mountain moving north and half moving south...
Then the LORD my God will
come, and ALL THE SAINTS WITH HIM" (Zechariah 14:3-5).
LORD WILL BE KING OVER THE WHOLE EARTH (Zechariah
"And he shall reign
over the house of Jacob forever; AND
OF HIS KINGDOM THERE SHALL BE NO END".
PRAYING FOR THE END
Too often we bring
our needs before our gracious and Almighty Father and try
to tell Him step-by-step how to go about answering our
Just tell Him what you want!
DON'T tell Him HOW
to do it.
He has A MILLION ways
of answering your prayer.
WAYS are always BETTER and HIGHER than our ways (Isaiah
He has ways of which
you haven't even thought.
And you may be asking
for the wrong thing. He may want to give you A BETTER,
MORE SATISFACTORY, AND BENEFICIAL result.
He's been doing this
(answering prayer) A LOT LONGER than you think, and before
we even KNEW HOW to pray.
Let Him do His job!
Let Him BE...
We are now praying
-- and hereby ask all our
wonderful intercessors to pray for -- the utter
destruction of ISIS, their eradication from the face of
the earth, and that they won't cause any harm to ANYONE
But Martel, Jesus
said to love and pray for even our enemies.
We ARE praying
for our enemies.
We're NOT telling God
how to do it.
HOWEVER God chooses
to answer that prayer is fine with me and, hopefully, with
all of us.
If He wants to bring
repentance to every ISIS member, forgive all their
wickedness and turn each of
them into a born-again child of the true God, I'm all for
On the other hand, if He
wants to open up the earth and send them all down into
hell alive, as He did with Korah, Dathan and Abiram, and
their evil families when they rebelled against God and
Moses, we'll take that, too (Numbers 16:29-33).
With the 13th
anniversary of 9/11 coming in just a few days, Lord
willing, I will be addressing our precious intercessors
soon, because our country NEEDS prayer.
And we want and
expect GOOD RESULTS.
So, we will be
telling the Lord WHAT WE WANT, in line of course with His
Word and His Will.
HOW He does it, or
what He chooses to do about it, is entirely up to Him.
And since we TRUST
HIM, we can all live with that. Amen.
DON'T SWEEP IT UNDER

difficult situation or problem?
Something that, in
the natural, seems nearly impossible to overcome?
The first thing you
need to know is that God has

With Him NOTHING is
impossible (Luke 1:37).
The second thing is, FACE
Don't sweep it under the
rug and PRETEND it's not there.
Don't stick your head
in the sand like the proverbial ostrich and WISH it'll
just "go away on its own".
F A C E I T !!!!!!!!
All the wishing and
hoping in the world IS NOT GOING TO make it go away.
Face it, take it to Jesus,
get His strategy to overcome it, and DEAL WITH IT on
an on-going, day-to-day basis UNTIL it
is TOTALLY resolved.
DON'T let up!
Not until it's 95%

The third thing is, DON'T

our sin and how desperate our need for redemption was and
He FACED IT RESOLUTELY, WILLING TO PAY THE ULTIMATE,

SO GRATEFUL that He
didn't let up. That He
didn't settle for PARTIAL victory.
So GRATEFUL that He
didn't say "O.K., Father. I've had enough. I've SUFFERED

TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 2,
"I am very
optimistic about Iraq. I
think it's gonna be one of the great achievements of this
administration. You're gonna see 90,000 American
troops come marchin' home by the end of the summer. You're
gonna see a stable government in Iraq that is actually
movin' toward a representative government. I've been there
17 times now. I go about every two months, three months. I
know every one of the major players in all the segments of
that society. It's impressed me. I've been impressed, how
they have been deciding to use the political process,
rather than guns, to settle their differences."
Joe Biden, Vice
President of the United States on Larry King TV
interview dated February 2010.
When then Senator
Barack Obama ran for President in 2008, he chose Joe Biden
as Vice Presidential running mate in
order to "balance the ticket" and compensate for his own
lack of experience, particularly in foreign affairs.
Biden was presented
in the media as an expert on the subject, extremely
experienced and very knowledgeable about terrorism,
Russia, and the Middle East.
declarations by Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel that
ISIS is "the biggest threat we've ever faced"...
With recent comments
by California Senator Diane Feinstein, A DEMOCRAT, that
Obama's been "too cautious" with ISIS...
With the recent
statement from British Prime Minister David Cameron that
"This is not some foreign conflict thousands of miles away
that we can hope to ignore", plus his call to confiscate
passports of those suspected of joining ISIS, and denying
re-entry into Britain to UK citizens suspected of being
(Thank God SOMEONE'S
showing some leadership in the Western world).
When even long
established bastions of liberalism like the Washington
Post and the New York Times are calling for the
President to get off his behind and DO SOMETHING.
And with the ominous
warning from Saudi Arabia's King Abdullah last Saturday
that, "If neglected, I am
CERTAIN THAT AFTER A MONTH they will reach Europe and,
AFTER ANOTHER MONTH, America."
Followed by the
President's startling statement that "WE
DON'T HAVE A STRATEGY on how to deal with ISIS in Syria
yet", it begs the question:
It seems everyone is
weighing in on the ISIS threat except Hyena Joe.
WHERE'S he been
WHERE'S the Vice President who
laughed artificially and dismissively throughout the
debate, and who once boldly said total withdrawal of the
U.S. from Iraq would be considered "one of the great
achievements of this administration"?
WHERE'S Joe been hiding,
while Russia takes over the Crimea and now seems intent on
taking part or all of Ukraine?
WHERE was Joe when Putin
outsmarted and outmaneuvered Obama, time and again, making
our President look like a complete fool, and
EXPOSING his glaring incompetence and total failure as
WHERE was Joe while our
President claimed to be "studying" the situation FOR OVER
TWO MONTHS, while playing golf and attending never-ending
fundraisers, and hundreds got decapitated, raped, died of
dehydration, or were abducted?
...And he STILL IS
WHERE was Joe when ISIS
seized nearly all of northern Iraq and portions of Syria?
WHERE was Joe when Assad
used chemical weapons on Syrian rebels with impunity?
WHERE was Joe when ISIS
recently took control of the Syrian border crossing into
Yes, I said ISRAEL.
And all the while Joe's been "missing in action"...
DON'T HAVE A FREAKIN' STRATEGY to deal with Isis in
I realize, based on
Scripture in general, and Bible prophecy in particular
that, in the end Jesus, and
JESUS ALONE, will get ALL THE CREDIT AND ALL THE GLORY for
delivering Israel, His Church, and the rest of the planet, but
Our nation's overall
spiritual bankruptcy has finally caught up with us!
We elected the first
social media President, based on looks, style and
popularity, based on how "cool" we thought he was, and how
well he could read a teleprompter, instead
of HOW CAPABLE he is, and the consequences are PAINFULLY
Just because some
people may like Usher, and think he's cool, doesn't mean
he's qualified to govern the country.
Let alone lead the
rest of the free world.
I usually quote the
Bible but today, begging God's forgiveness, I'm gonna
quote Simon and Garfunkel, from their hit song "Mrs.
WHERE HAVE YOU GONE,
OUR NATION TURNS ITS LONELY EYES TO YOU.
What's that you say, Mrs. Robinson.
Jolting Joe HAS
LEFT AND GONE AWAY,
Hey, hey, hey
Hey, hey, hey
Just switch "Biden"
for "DiMaggio", and you got it.
That song also begins
with the line "Jesus loves you more than you will know".
After watching our
government's and our President's complacency and
vacillating ineptness, IT'S A GOOD THING THAT Jesus LOVES
We've reached the
point where America's ONLY
HOPE is to TRUST His never failing Love.
MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 1,
Somewhere along the
way, organized religion SOLD US the idea that Christians
ARE SUPPOSED TO BE MOUSY AND TIMID.
Somewhere along the
way we came to believe we're supposed to be quiet,
backward, unnoticed, and non-intrusive: Just mind our own
That being a "good
Christian" means to ALWAYS have this idiotic smile, be
nice, go to church, go home, and not make any waves.
That we're supposed
to be human doormats, and accept whatever comes our way.
That we're not to
have any impact on the world around us, that we're not to
engage in, or affect popular culture.
That we are to
retreat into the safety of certain man-invented buildings
we INCORRECTLY call "churches" and barricade ourselves.
That we should ‘hold
the fort" and see those buildings as PLACES OF REFUGE, to
shelter us from all the evil that goes on around us.
Somewhere along the
way, the Church was put on defense.
When all the while we
should have been be playing OFFENSE.
We were sold a whole
bunch of unbiblical, religious B.S.
Where did the
religious establishment get these ideas?
Certainly not from
That's just the
opposite of what we read in the Gospels.
That's NOT the
example that Jesus and His apostles set for us.
Jesus told us to GO
INTO (PENETRATE) ALL the world.
That sounds like
offense to me.
He never told us to
hide inside air conditioned buildings with padded pews,
sing boring hymns, and let the world go to hell!
Jesus was always on
Even when He hung in
agony on the cross, He was on offense. He was in control.
He was pro-active. He
was setting a trap for Satan. And Satan fell for it.
Satan paid dearly for
that mistake, and is still paying.
"If the princes of
this world had known THEY WOULD HAVE NEVER CRUCIFIED the
Lord of Glory" [1st Corinthians 2:8].
How can we even call
ourselves "Christian" when we don't follow our Master's
Go INTO all THE
WORLD. . . means JUST THAT.... "all" means "ALL".
We're supposed to go
into bars and brothels, hospitals and clubs, schools and
homes, factories and offices, parties and funerals.
We're supposed to go
on the streets, and invade all forms of media with his
glorious message of eternal life.
Proverbs 28:1 says
"THE RIGHTEOUS ARE AS BOLD AS A LION".
Jesus' NEVER preached
retreat. He told us to ADVANCE. He told us to OCCUPY.
Let's get on offense,
and put Satan and his minions on defense.
Let's put them where
they belong, under the Church's feet.
The Promised Land is
there for us to take. Do we still fear the "giants"? Or
are we BOLD ENOUGH to cross the Jordan ?
