and ONLY thru Jesus, the door to the Kingdom will be shut

a child of God, but a sneaky bastard.

OUT OF NOTHING
The other morning I
was watching TV, and made the mistake of stopping for a
moment at one of the "Christian" channels.
The televangelist on
the screen was reading a letter from one of his supporters
who had just lost her job and was having a rough time
immediately launched into his phony baloney, SEND ME MONEY,
He said that
"God will bless you and multiply you. But in
order for God to multiply, you must put something into His
By putting something into
"God's hand" he clearly meant that this poor woman
should send MONEY TO HIM.
He then used Jesus'
multiplication of the loaves and fish as example.
I'm not going to say
the televangelist's name, BUT I sure as hell I'm going to
speak against his PREMEDITATED DECEIT.
holier-than-thou religionists, "hell" is IN THE BIBLE).
I wonder what verse of
Scripture says that giving
money to callous, uncaring, money grubbing, religious liars
constitutes "giving to God".
I also wonder WHEN God
EVER authorized THAT LYING
TELEVANGELIST, or any other televangelist -- even the
FEW honest ones -- to receive
money IN GOD'S STEAD.
THIS MAN WAS
Does God need us to
"put something in His hand" in order to multiply it?
NO, NO, and a million times
He created THE
ENTIRE UNIVERSE OUT
OF NOTHING (Hebrews 11:1).
Nobody "gave Him" anything in
order for Him to create it!
Nobody "planted a seed" so
God could make the stars.
Nobody PUT ANYTHING "in His
hand" so He could multiply it into cells, amino acids,
atoms, particles, animals, humans...
He created EVERYTHING OUT OF
NOTHING, and He
multiplied EVERYTHING OUT OF NOTHING.
How dare this
avaricious scam artist limit
God by saying that He CANNOT UNLESS YOU DO?
do ANYTHING HE WANTS!!!
God's blessings ARE
He never attaches any
NEED TO "put anything" in His hand.
What you really need
to do is give
Him your heart.

In recent days we've
talked about Prophecy Dinosaurs and Prophecy Mutants. But
there's a third breed of self-proclaimed mutilated prophecy
The Prophecy Gymnast.
The gymnasts are those
WHOSE PERSONAL PREFERENCE trumps all else, including God.
They will "bend over
backwards" to make their belief "fit" Scripture, even if
they have to perform 50 different maneuvers to "get there".
Gymnasts are the ones
who add this, subtract that, divide by the 153 fish the
disciples caught in John chapter 21, and then multiply by
the 120 disciples in the Upper Room to "arrive" at their
They're the ones who
toss both Scripture and human logic out the window.
They're the ones who
MIX ASTROLOGY AND PSEUDO SCIENCE with the Bible.
In recent years
they've regaled us with such prophetic "gems" as the zodiac
sign Virgo being the woman in Revelation 12, the myth of
NONEXISTENT "Planet X" (a/k/a Nibiru), the alleged
"apocalyptic horse" on Tahir Square, in Cairo, Egypt, the
UFO over the so-called Temple Mount - all
of which are PROVEN hoaxes - and mysterious "trumpet
sounds", humming and bird chirping to which ONLY A FEW
"CHOSEN ONES" ARE PRIVY.
They are still
regaling us with comet Elenin, WHICH DISINTEGRATED FOUR
YEARS AGO, in October 2011.
THAT doesn't stop the PG's from keeping it "alive".
Don't you know that
NASA is involved in a huge conspiracy to keep us in the
dark about Elenin, and keep its existence and trajectory
hidden from us ?
Of course, stupid
gymnasts never even consider that
NASA ISN'T the only space observatory in the world. There
are many others right
here in the U.S. (Texas, California) and in many other
countries including Russia, China, Denmark, Chile and
Apparently, then, the
WHOLE SCIENTIFIC COMMUNITY ACROSS THE GLOBE is involved in
this "conspiracy" to keep A DEAD COMET, which gymnasts
claim IS STILL ALIVE, hidden from us.
Too bad that they
don't have the same conviction about the Resurrection of
REAL Bible prophecy flows
smoothly, dovetails effortlessly, and is self-evident.
When we resort to all
these capricious formulas, we
can "make" the Bible "say" ANYTHING WE WANT.
Those who perform
these loony calculations are
NOT seeking Truth, nor honoring God.
They are DISHONEST,
SELF-SERVING MORONS who will
go to any lengths to "make" a case for what THEY'VE ALREADY
CHOSEN TO BELIEVE, and FOR THE LIE they HAVE DELIBERATELY
CHOSEN to SPREAD.
My advice to all
Prophecy Gymnasts is:
Read, and RE-READ
Jesus' warning in Revelation 22:18-19 about the SEVERE
CONSEQUENCES of adding to His Word of Prophecy.
Bible prophecy ISN'T a game.
It's HISTORY (His
Story) written IN ADVANCE.
Revelation 21:8 says
that ALL LIARS (who
contradict God's Truth) will have their part in the lake of
Those who DISHONOR
God's Word, WILL BE DISHONORED by God.
Gymnasts need to
repent and seek God's will,
INSTEAD OF THEIR OWN.

THE NEED TO LOVE
LOVE your neighbor AS
YOURSELF (Mark 12:31)
The first commandment,
according to Jesus, is TO
LOVE God, with ALL our heart,ALL our soul, ALL our
strength and ALL our
commandment is TO LOVE
Well, that's not what
I read in the verse you quoted: it says to love OUR
It says to love your
neighbor AS you
you DON'T LOVE YOURSELF you CANNOT love your neighbor.
I realize that is NOT
the way organized religion presents this great precept...
But think about it...
If we're supposed to
love our neighbor AS we love
ourselves, and we DON'T love ourselves, then
HOW ON EARTH can we LOVE our neighbor?
you have NO LOVE for yourself,HOW can you give your
neighbor the love YOU DON'T HAVE?
The NEED to love
ourselves has been grossly
distorted by religion.
Loving ourselves is
often equated with pride and selfishness.
Nothing can be farther from
Those who are haughty
and selfish HATE THEMSELVES.
They DON'T HAVE ONE
OUNCE of love to bestow on themselves or anyone else.
Since they HATE
themselves, they are
INCAPABLE OF loving their neighbor.
That's what makes them
arrogant, selfish, and --depending on the degree of hate --
CRIMINALS and TERRORISTS.
There's no better
example of this principle than radical Islam.
WHY do you think these
guys COMMIT SUCH ATROCITIES without even batting an eye?
WHY do you think they are
WILLING to strap on a belt of explosives and
detonate themselves into smithereens?
They HATE themselves...
also hate OTHERS...
These people LIVE
IN hate, breathe hate, think hate, and THRIVE ON hate.
You MUST love
yourself, or "your neighbor"
is IN BIG TROUBLE.
But, you may wonder, HOW can
I love myself?
There's nothing in me
You're wrong. That's
THE LIE that Satan sold man in the Garden of Eden.
LIE he's been selling us ever since.
It DOES NOT YET
APPEAR who you really are...
but when Jesus appears WE
SHALL BE LIKE HIM (1 John 3:2).
And JESUS -- the JESUS
IN YOU -- IS WORTHY of OUR
TOTAL, UNRESTRAINED LOVE.
When Jesus appears
YOU'LL NO LONGER be that jerk you dislike. You
WILL BE LIKE HIM.
be HIM, as He MANIFESTS IN you.
You MUST love
yourself because you are
created in the Image of Love (God).
You MUST love
yourself because God LOVES
You MUST love
yourself because God PROVED
His love for you by appearing on earth in human form,
dying for your sins and rising from the dead.
You MUST love yourself
because Love IS YOUR TRUE
You are a child of God
and God (our Father) IS love (1
You MUST love yourself
because as a child of God you
are A MANIFESTATION OF Jesus, and predestined to become...
Him (Romans 8:29).
But, most importantly,
you MUST LOVE YOURSELF because
Jesus, Love Personified, LIVES IN YOU.
Love inhabits love.
If you DO NOT love
yourself, HOW CAN JESUS (who
is Love Personified) FEEL WELCOME inside you?
ALL of this world's problems
-without exception -- STEM FROM LACK OF LOVE.
I gotta wonder how
different the Eden experience might have been had
Eve realized HOW MUCH God loves her.
Had she LOVED HERSELF enough to
BELIEVE and TRUST IN God's endless Love.

TRUSTING GOD'S LOVE
Trusting God involves
more than simply trusting that He came in human form, in
the Person of Jesus, died for our sins, removed
all sin for all time, rose from the dead and ascended to
BELIEF IS ESSENTIAL to individual Salvation, there's
another part of TRUSTING God that, in our evangelistic
zeal, is often missed and seldom taught.
I've been guilty of
this omission myself.
I'm talking about TRUSTING
the love that God has FOR YOU.
I'm talking about TRUSTING that
He LOVES YOU -- UNCONDITIONALLY.
Think for a moment
about WHAT THAT MEANS:
It means that we
NEED NOT FEAR God.
It means that we
NEED NOT FEAR, PERIOD.
NO MATTER HOW BLEAK
circumstances may SEEM, He is
Love, HE LOVES YOU, and He is in control.
The sufferings of this
present time ARE NOT WORTHY
TO BE COMPARED WITH the glory which shall be revealed in us (Romans
It means that,
BECAUSE HE LOVES US, every enemy WILL BE VANQUISHED, and
we will ultimately emerge TOTALLY VICTORIOUS in Christ.
It means that
we DO NOT HAVE TO "PERFORM" in order to "earn" His favor,
MUCH LESS HIS LOVE.
Re-read the previous
His favor (Grace) IS
THE INEVITABLE result of His UNCONDITIONAL LOVE for us.
That is WHY Salvation
is - and ALWAYS WILL BE - BY
GRACE ONLY, through FAITH ONLY.
God LOVES US, and GIVES
US THE FREE GIFT of Salvation, BECAUSE IT'S HIS Nature to
He IS Love. Of
the Divine kind... (1 John 4:16)
He LOVES YOU and me, NOT
because we deserve it, but because... He CAN'T HELP
When we realize the
INFINITE LOVE He has for us, that
ONLY requires we trust Him, as a little child trusts his or
her daddy, our spontaneous response is TO LOVE HIM BACK
with ALL our hearts...
To the point that HIS
WILL becomes our heart's greatest desire.
We are living in the
"time of the end". We are experiencing the "perilous times"
prophesied in Scripture (2 Timothy 3:1-5).
is IMPERATIVE for every Christian, and
FOR EVERY HUMAN BEING ON EARTH, to realize that - NO MATTER
WHAT goes on around us - the One, TRUE God loves us
Even in the midst of
chaos, we can REST in that
UNMOVABLE, ETERNAL TRUTH.
We need to TRUST the
Love that God has for us... TO
THE VERY END.

ISIS IN PROPHECY
You've watched all the
videos on YouTube (there are OVER A HUNDRED THOUSAND),
listened to all the alleged "experts" or, worse, BOUGHT and
read their stupid books FALSELY CLAIMING that Isis and its
continued rampage through the Middle East "is prophesied in
does GOD have to say about it?
While God speaks, IN
GENERAL TERMS, about Middle East turmoil in the last days -
"nation against nation and kingdom against kingdom" - there
is NOTHING in the Bible that specifically mentions the
terrorist organization named ISIS.
Well, HOW can that be?
Did God "miss" something?
Did He forget to tell
Not a chance.
Although it DOESN'T
SPECIFY HOW, WHERE, or BY WHOM, Revelation 6:9-11 clearly
says that many Christians
will be killed JUST PRIOR to the tribulation and Rapture.
Since Jesus gave the
Book of Revelation to John in the first century A.D., and
since the "world" known at the time was basically the
Middle East and Mediterranean basin, we can surmise, IN
CONTEXT, that He was saying this barbarous onslaught of
Christians would take place in THAT area of the world.
I would be remiss if I
didn't say that they are ALSO
KILLING Muslims of other sects and, basically, anyone
else they WANT TO kill.
Whenever EVEN ONE of
His children is persecuted or killed, JESUS TAKES IT
PERSONALLY (Acts 9:4).
According to Revelation
6:11, the tribulation CANNOT BEGIN UNTIL a particular
"number" of Christians has been killed.
When that number is
reached, then God Himself
WILL AVENGE THEIR BLOOD "from those who dwell on the earth" (Revelation
There is NOTHING in
Scripture to suggest that
ISIS will play a prominent role during the upcoming
THE ONLY SIGNIFICANT
OPPOSITION encountered by Antichrist during his 42-month
reign is that of Iran.
And, even there, he
will vanquish his opponents (Daniel 8:19-25; 11:44).
According to Daniel
11:40-44, the Antichrist will engage in brief combat with
Egypt (king of the south), Turkey and,
possibly, WHATEVER'S LEFT OF Syria (king of the
north), and emerge victorious:
"He WILL INVADE
MANY COUNTRIES AND SWEEP
THROUGH THEM LIKE A FLOOD.
He WILL ALSO INVADE the
Beautiful Land (ISRAEL).
MANY COUNTRIES WILL
FALL, but Edom, Moab and the leaders of Ammon (Jordan) will
be delivered from his hand.
He WILL EXTEND HIS POWER OVER
Egypt WILL NOT ESCAPE.
He WILL GAIN CONTROL OF
THE TREASURES OF GOLD AND SILVER AND ALL THE RICHES OF
the Libyans and Cushites (Iraquis) IN SUBMISSION"
(Daniel 11:40-43; Genesis 10:8-11).
territorial gains are mainly in Iraq and Syria, this
passage suggests that, once the tribulation begins, ISIS
will be DESTROYED either:
1) By God through the 6
Its scant remains, if
any, will be SOUNDLY DEFEATED by the Antichrist, and it
WILL CEASE TO EXIST.
2) By Iran.
3) By Antichrist. Or,
some combination of the above THREE.
Right now it may SEEM that
ISIS is unstoppable.
While Russia, the EU,
and even the U.S.A have failed miserably in stopping, or
even SLOWING, the ISIS juggernaut, NEVER FEAR:
Jesus CAN stop them.
And Jesus WILL stop

CUT THE MIDDLEMAN
Never a week goes by
that we don't hear from several "Christians" who
CLAIM to be conveying a message from God.
"God" is usually "telling
them to tell me" THAT I SHOULDN'T TEACH the Rapture is
pre-trib, SHOULDN'T TEACH that Christians are not under the
law or the 10 Commandments, or that Saturday observance is
not required, or that Christians aren't supposed to tithe.

LOVE OF MONEY - push FABRICATED conspiracy theories,
Islamic antichrists, Islamic world rule, "blood moons",
"harbingers", Turkish caliphates, and symbols in Arabic

INSPIRED Book of Revelation.

himself to the world.

that NO SIGNS precede the Rapture. That it will happen, one
of these days, "out of the blue", whenever God capriciously
decides it's time to zap us out of here.

WHAT THEY WANT TO BELIEVE.
1. HONESTLY asked the
Holy Spirit to reveal who comprises the multitude.
2. Accepted His answer, even
if they DON'T like it.
3. Analyzed Scripture
and carefully compared the two groups.
4. USED COMMON SENSE:
A. HOW can
the Antichrist kill THAT MANY
PEOPLE in merely 42 months?
He will kill MANY, but
NOT a "great multitude that CANNOT be counted".
B. If he killed THAT
MANY of the people left on earth - presumably for rejecting
him and his mark - HOW, THEN,
can Scripture say that "THE WHOLE WORLD marveled AFTER the
beast"? (Revelation 13:3)
C. How can Revelation
13:4 say that THEY ALL
"WORSHIPED the beast"?
D. And that "ALL
WHO DWELL ON THE EARTH will WORSHIP HIM" (Revelation
they ALL worshiped him, WHY would he have them killed?
F. And if he killed
THAT MANY - that can't even be numbered - WHO'D
BE LEFT on earth to worship him?
G. If the multitude
and the martyrs were the same group, why would one of the
elders ask John "WHO are
these, WHERE did THEY come from?" (Revelation 7:12).
Wouldn't John and the
elder ALREADY KNOW who they
are, since they saw them
BEFORE, UNDER the 5th seal?
A careful comparison
of the two groups also reveals that:
martyrs CAN be numbered, the multitude CANNOT (Revelation
2. The martyrs are
only SOULS under the altar with NO
BODIES (Revelation 6:9).
The multitude HAS
bodies (Revelation 7:9).
martyrs have died for "the Word of God" (Revelation
Nowhere are we told that
the multitude has died.
On the contrary, they
have "COME OUT OF the great tribulation" (Revelation 7:14)
4. The martyrs are
begging God to avenge their blood from those who dwell
on the earth (Revelation 6:10).
The multitude is
praising God (Revelation 7:10).
5. The martyrs appear
under the 5th
seal (Revelation 6:9) BEFORE
the tribulation has begun.
The multitude appears under
seal, SOON AFTER
the tribulation HAS begun (Revelation 6:12; 7:9).
6. The martyrs are
UNDER THE ALTAR (Revelation 6:9).
The multitude IS
STANDING BEFORE God's Throne (Revelation 7:9; 15).
There is NO WAY these two
groups can be the same:
It defies human logic
and CONTRADICTS God.
The great, innumerable
multitude INCLUDES the martyrs, plus all who have died in
Christ for the past two thousand years, PLUS ALL THE LIVING
BELIEVERS (when the Rapture happens) INCLUDING those who
turn to Jesus in the final seconds of this age.
The great, innumerable
multitude IS THE CHURCH.

has turned many things into "gods", served them as gods,
worshiped them as gods, and allowed
false gods to rule their lives.

It's when we allow
these things to COMPETE with
Jesus, to hog the time
and attention that belong to Him, that we should be
spending with Him, that they become idols.
At some point, we have
to DECIDE that it's time to
TURN THESE THINGS OFF, FORSAKE THEM (at least for a while),
and FOCUS on Him who is our life.

to admit that Jesus isn't their ONLY God.

third, fifth, seventh or ____ place.

Three days ago, and
three days before Jerusalem Day (which is today), on the
48th anniversary of biblical Jerusalem's return to Jewish
control, the Vatican declared
its formal recognition of a "Palestinian State".
Announcing a treaty
between the RCC and the PA to be signed in the near future,
the Vatican proclaimed the canonization of two
"Palestinian" nuns, and for
the first time in a legal document, recognized a "State"
that DOESN'T EXIST, NEVER EXISTED, and WILL NEVER EXIST.
Matter of fact, there
is NO SUCH THING AS a "Palestinian".
is NO SUCH THING AS a "Palestinian".
"Palestinians" are simply
ARABS living in OCCUPIED ISRAEL.
brokered a deal to "normalize" relations between the U.S.
and communist Cuba...
(I couldn't help
noticing that, in recent decades, the U.S. President and
the Pope seem to be in sync: Reagan and John Paul II were
both fervent anti-communists who collaborated to bring down
the Soviet Union, and now
Francis and Obama seem to be ON THE SAME SOCIALIST PAGE).
Fresh from his meeting
with Cuban President, dictator and ruthless assassin Raul
Castro, from whom he garnered praises saying he was so
impressed with this Pope that he might "return to his
Jesuit roots" and rejoin the Roman religion, Francis
is either dreaming, woefully ignorant of Scripture, OR
(As much as I believe
in redemption, there will be
a blizzard in hell BEFORE Raul becomes Catholic).
Adding insult to
injury, Iyyar 28 (today) is also THE DAY when
the resurrected Jesus ascended to heaven in sight of
His disciples, and the VERY
DAY that Francis received Mahmoud Abbas at the Vatican
calling him "an angel of peace".
As someone raised in
Roman Catholicism, I find it appalling that the world's
largest Christian denomination should
OPPOSE the very God and Savior in Whom it professes to
believe WITH SUCH FLAGRANT VIOLATIONS OF His written
Someone should take
Pope Francis and his team aside and read them the third
chapter of Joel, which says that ARABS presently
living in Israel WILL BE BANISHED to Saudi ARABIA,
where they belong (Joel 3:4-8).
Someone should read
the Pope, and the rest of Roman Catholic hierarchy, Genesis
(ISRAEL) said to Joseph, "God
Almighty appeared to me at Luz in the land of Canaan,
and there he blessed me and
SAID TO ME, ‘I am going to make you fruitful and
increase your numbers. I will make you a community of
peoples, and I
WILL GIVE THIS LAND AS AN EVERLASTING POSSESSION TO YOUR
DESCENDANTS AFTER YOU'."
Exactly WHICH PART of
"THIS LAND" (Canaan), or "I will give to you (Israel)" or "TO
YOUR DESCENDANTS AFTER YOU AS AN EVERLASTING POSSESSION"
escapes Vatican officials?
And yet they
OPPOSE God, they oppose Israel, and side with the PA
who just declared that Israel "does not have the right to
EVEN AN INCH" of Canaan.
Even if we set Israel
aside, and all the consequences of such "recognition", it's
as though the Roman religion were saying:
"We KNOW BETTER THAN God, and
CAN DECIDE MORE JUSTLY who should be in possession of
Surely, such arrogance
cannot escape the Almighty's notice.
Someone should also
remind the Pope, the Cardinals, and everyone at the Vatican
of Proverbs 16:18:
BEFORE DESTRUCTION, and AN
ARROGANT SPIRIT BEFORE THE FALL".
Revelation chapters 17
and 18 foretell Rome's (hence the Vatican's) UTTER
DESTRUCTION, NEVER TO RISE AGAIN (Revelation 17:16-18;
See also Revelation
Roman Catholicism has
a long, sordid history of anti-semitism.
By maintaining its
pro-Arab and anti-Israel stance, the Vatican may well have
sealed its own fate.

WOMEN AND ISLAM
I want to talk to
women in the Western world, and Christian women in
It's not that some of
this does not apply to men, or that it cannot happen to
men. However, most of the
victims are female.
Western women are
being TARGETED by certain extremist groups, and the results
are nothing short of TRAGIC.
I'm talking about MARRYING
MEN OF A FALSE RELIGION...
I'm talking SPECIFICALLY
about INTERACTING WITH, dating, sleeping with,
marrying and -- (God forbid)
HAVING CHILDREN WITH -- men FROM ONE RELIGION in
particular, called Islam.
For those even
CONTEMPLATING -- ANY KIND of relationship -- with a man
of the Islamic religion, I have just one question:
ARE YOU INSANE?
Social media is being
used to trick, seduce, brainwash, recruit and, ultimately,
ENSLAVE Western women.
It goes something like
this: you enter some website or forum (Facebook, Twitter,
whatever) and "befriend" some Muslim guy.
He seems nice enough.
Sends you his picture. He may even be good-looking, as hard
to believe as that may be...
And he starts talking
about "God", family, children, love, wanting to "take care
of you", "peace', "justice", "morality"...
Everything he SAYS -- SOUNDS --"wonderful".
Next thing you know
he's telling you how "special" and beautiful you are, that
"he LOVES you" and asking to
meet you IN PERSON, or flat-out asking you to "come visit"
him in some Islamic country.

Are you OUT OF YOUR
MIND? Have you NO CLUE as to what's going on in the world?
Don't you know that women
have NO RIGHTS under Islam?
Don't you know that THIS
EVIL AND DEMONIC RELIGION, SPAWNED BY SATAN, regards ALL
DISPOSABLE PERSONAL PROPERTY?
Do you know that you
can be ACCUSED OF "ADULTERY", "FORNICATION", "SLANDERING
THE PROPHET", "DESECRATING THE KORAN", and a number of
other "crimes" - EVEN IF
YOU'VE NEVER COMMITTED any of these acts - and
SENTENCED TO DEATH by stoning or beheading WITHOUT ANY
Do you know that
YOUR CHILDREN -- (GOD FORBID that you should be impregnated
by one of these demons) -- CAN BE TAKEN AWAY FROM YOU,
and you will NEVER SEE THEM AGAIN?
Worse, that they will
be indoctrinated into a religion THAT WILL SEND THEM
STRAIGHT TO HELL?
That you're basically
HELPLESS to do ANYTHING about it under that infernal
Yes, children are saved by
the Grace of God, including those born to Islamic parents.

STAY children forever.
If they have not
received Christ by the "age of accountability" THEY
WILL GO TO HELL when they die.
Don't be STUPID!!!
Western society is FAR
from perfect. We all know that.
Our nations, leaders,
political, educational, and religious systems are deeply
flawed. We know that as well.
all the ILLS that afflict Western society IT'S A PICNIC, A
WALK IN THE PARK, a trip to Disneyland, COMPARED to the
HELLISH existence that awaits you if you (God forbid)
SHOULD FALL into the Muslim trap.
Don't walk, women: RUN
- RUN!!! - from these guys AS FAR and AS FAST as you
RUN from them like
they had the plague!
Please DON'T enter
into ANY sort of relationship with these men.
There can be NO
FELLOWSHIP BETWEEN light and darkness, or between
Christ and Satan (2 Corinthians 6:14-15).
TALK is CHEAP.
ANY insincere, evil bastard
can SAY "you're beautiful", "you're special" and "I
Satan is a
MASTER of DECEIT.
His "specialty" IS LYING.
ANY EVIL DEMON CAN SAY those
"magical" words, that he "loves you, wants to take care
of you, and provide for you".
He can SAY all those
things, and more, WITHOUT
He can SAY all those
things EVEN WHEN HE DOESN'T
He can SAY all those
things when ALL HE WANTS IS
TO DECEIVE YOU, ENTRAP you, then USE YOU.
I don't have the words
to express HOW MUCH you will
REGRET it, should you ever fall into the hands of one of
these monsters, let alone join his terrorist group.
We all know Western
men are FAAAAAR from perfect.
But at least WOMEN
HAVE RIGHTS in Western society.
They HAVE NO
RIGHTS under Islam.
Even if you're NOT

YOURSELF A HUGE FAVOR:

ONE SPIRIT OR ANOTHER
- FINAL PART
HAS NOT given us the SPIRIT OF FEAR but (the
Spirit) OF POWER, LOVE and of a
sound mind (2 Timothy 1:7).
Holy Spirit IS the power of God...
Since the Holy Spirit IS
the GREATEST power anywhere...
Since the Holy Spirit LIVES
IN the hearts of God's children...
God's children TOTALLY IGNORE the Holy Spirit THEY HAVE
If they LIVE OBLIVIOUS
TO His Presence.
If they are CLUELESS
and UNAWARE of their INNER Power...
If they NEVER
use or release that INNER Power...
Then Satan will TAKE OVER, BY
DEFAULT, and manifest his wickedness...
Since God's children constantly
QUENCH the Spirit and DO NOT allow Him to manifest through
Satan's spirit, which
is the UNCLEAN, UNHOLY spirit of TERROR (fear) is
FEAR AND TERROR are
The spirit of fear IS the
spirit of TERROR and TERRORISM.
Just like the Holy
Spirit is the power of God, the
spirit of fear is the power of Satan (Genesis 3:10).
It is the spirit of
fear that OPENS THE DOOR TO
ALL OTHER EVIL SPIRITS to wreak havoc and destruction, both
in our lives, and IN THE WORLD.
When we CUT FEAR
OFF, we CUT Satan off.
Again: When we CUT
FEAR OFF, we CUT Satan off.
When we CUT FEAR OFF, we
CUT TERROR off.
If you want to look at
THE MAIN REASON for THE EXISTENCE (manifestation) of Isis,
Hamas, Hezbollah, Islamic Jihad, Boko Haram, Khorasan, and
every other Islamic terrorist group - LOOK IN THE MIRROR.
If the Body of Christ WON'T
exercise God's Power, Satan will
manifest his power.
If we DON'T
START BEING Jesus, Satan's children
WILL BE Satan.
We are the light of
the world (Matthew 5:14).
If our light is hidden,
DARKNESS is inevitable.
We are the salt of the
If SALT loses it's
flavor, it's ONLY GOOD TO BE TRAMPLED ON (Matthew 5:13).
WAKE UP, lazy,
Be CONSCIOUS OF God's Holy
Spirit INSIDE YOU- ALL THE TIME.
We better MANIFEST the Love
of God, EXERCISE JESUS' AUTHORITY, STAND SPIRITUALLY
AGAINST FEAR (terror), and START BEING JESUS on this earth.

about the number)
3. Taken credit for the

ONE SPIRIT OR ANOTHER
There are TWO
PRINCIPAL SPIRITS vying for people's hearts :
The Spirit of God and
the spirit of Satan.
The Holy Spirit is THE POWER
(Matthew 12:28; Luke
1:36; 4:14; Acts 1:8, 10:38; Romans 1:4; 15:19; 1
Corinthians 2:4; Ephesians 3:16; 2 Timothy 1:7).
Again: The Holy Spirit
is --THE POWER OF -- God.
The Holy Spirit is
NOT an emotion.
He is NOT shouting,
hissing, shaking uncontrollably, or rolling on the floor.
He is NOT blabbering
in tongues IN FRONT OF OTHERS to SHOW THEM how "spiritual"
and "religiously superior" we are.
He is a Person.
He is a Presence.
He is DIVINE Love. He is God.
The spirit of Satan IS
THE SPIRIT OF FEAR (2 Timothy 1:7).
It manifests in many
ways: among them, as the spirit of antichrist, the spirit
of hate, and THE SPIRIT OF
Do you know the main
reason THAT UNHOLY spirit is
MANIFESTING SO STRONGLY at the end of this age?
Because Christians are NOT
allowing the HOLY Spirit to manifest through them.
Once more: the
main reason the UNHOLY spirit of Islam IS MANIFESTING SO
STRONGLY is because Christians
are NOT allowing the HOLY Spirit to manifest through them.
The reason he is turning
much of our youth into demon
possessed, radicalized fanatics of Mohammedanism and his
demonic Sharia Law, is BECAUSE CHRISTIANS ARE
NOT TURNING THEM INTO JESUS FANATICS.
And please don't even
bring up some of the religious spectacles that go on among
95% of that is PURE
FLESH, and NOT ONE OUNCE OF
Holy Spirit... and I'm being kind in conceding the 5%.
The Spirit of God is
INFINITELY more powerful than the spirit of Satan.
Therefore, we MUST ask
ourselves "WHY are we losing
this world, when we should be WINNING IT?"
All born-agains HAVE
the Holy Spirit in them.
All born-agains CAN
BE FILLED with the Holy Spirit.
And all born-agains SHOULD
BE LIVING, day to day, moment to moment, in the Spirit,
and by the Spirit.
Problem is that 99% of
born agains -- Pentecostal included -- PAY
NO ATTENTION TO the Holy Spirit THEY HAVE INSIDE.
They BLATANTLY IGNORE
the Spirit of God.
NO INTEREST WHATSOEVER in Him.
They don't even THINK
They don't even
REALIZE they have Him.
They never CONSULT Him
or to talk to Him about ANYTHING.
They never even THANK
They ONLY remember Him - if
at all -- during Sunday worship - ONLY for carnal display,
and then FORGET ABOUT HIM the rest of the week.
as though He DOESN'T EVEN EXIST.
They are OBLIVIOUS
TO THE LOVE OF GOD and THE FAITH OF GOD, they have inside -
both of which come from His Spirit (Romans 5:5).
The Holy Spirit's MAIN
FUNCTION - according to Jesus - is to lead us and guide us
to ALL the Truth (John 16:13).
JESUS IS ALL THE TRUTH (John
And while that also
covers showing us the Truth about certain situations, or
about "the future", His main
job is to LEAD US TO THE MANIFESTATION OF JESUS (ALL the
Truth) in us.
We IGNORE the Holy
Spirit to our own detriment.
Give Satan a vacuum,
and HE WILL FILL IT.
Give him an opening
and, but for the mercy of God, he'll take the whole earth.

the Holy Spirit and manifest His power, OR DEMONS WILL

WHAT CHRISTIANS CAN
LEARN FROM ISLAM
"And to the angel of
the church in Sardis write; These things says He that has
the seven Spirits of God, and the seven stars; I know your
works... YOU HAVE A NAME THAT
YOU LIVE, but YOU ARE DEAD.
Be watchful, AND STRENGTHEN
THE THINGS WHICH REMAIN, THAT ARE READY TO DIE: for I
have not found your works perfect before God."
The rise of radical
Islam has taken the world by storm.
The Church, organized
Christianism, and even the most economically and militarily
advanced nations, are equally baffled by it.
They all seem to be
scratching their heads at the undeniable fact that their
own fellow citizens, particularly the young, who live in
some of the freest and most developed nations on earth, are
irresistibly attracted to its message.
They BECOME OBSESSED to the
point that they are willing to GIVE IT ALL UP, leave
homes, friends and family, burn all sociopolitical and
economic bridges behind them, and join their barbaric
All this while feckless
pastors extol the virtues of "balance" (DON'T GET TOO
EXCITED about Jesus, the Christian faith, or anything).

All this while

breakfast", and to peddle their worthless books on CNN.

pursuits like "blood moons", Islamic eschatology, or
PRETENDING to be righteous, when there is ONLY ONE who is
All this while the
Church IS BEING SWALLOWED UP by the world, and has
become virtually indistinguishable from it.
All this while
our brothers and sisters are being brutally slaughtered by
these monsters all over Africa and the Middle East - and we
DO NOTHING, and SAY NOTHING.
WHAT can we learn from
The need for PASSION.
If we DON'T teach TOTAL,
UNRESTRAINED PASSION for Jesus, and for WHO He is,THEY
will fill the void with their HATRED.
THAT is worth
If we DO
NOT teach TOTAL, UNRESTRAINED PASSION for Jesus, and
for WHO He is,THEY will fill
the void with their HATRED.
If ALL we're capable of
promoting about our Faith is "balance" and restraint (DON'T
do this, DON'T do that), DON'T WORRY...
GIVE THEM SOMETHING to get excited AND FANATICAL about.
The Church needs to
FALL DELIRIOUSLY and PASSIONATELY IN LOVE WITH Jesus.
We need RED
HOT Christians willing to sacrifice and give up EVERYTHING
for Jesus, even TO THE DEATH.
There's NOTHING "BALANCED"
ABOUT being a TRUE believer and follower of Christ.
There was NOTHING "balanced" about
the Early Church.
They were willing
TO DIE some of the cruelest deaths for their Savior.
There was NOTHING "balanced"
about the 12 Apostles. They GAVE IT ALL to follow
And there was NOTHING
"balanced" about JESUS.

Eve was created in the image
of God, as the ideal companion to Adam.
Although she was
deceived, she became the "mother of all living" (Genesis
Sarah was loyal to Abraham,
even when he passed her off as his "sister". She became the
first of Israel's Matriarchs and is the first woman
mentioned in Hebrew's 11 "Hall of Faith" (Hebrews 11:11).
Rebekkah, is the first
woman in the Bible to give birth to twins. She was
assertive enough to favor Jacob over Esau and deceive the
aging Isaac into bestowing the birthright blessing on
caused strife between her two sons. Yet God used her
deception to advance His purpose (Romans 9:13).
She became the second
of Israel's Matriarchs.
Leah had six boys and a girl, and
had to deal with the unpleasantness of not being too
attractive and sharing her husband with her beautiful
That, I assure you,
was no picnic. She always felt unloved and had to play
second fiddle to Rachel since Jacob loved and preferred
Rachel, while he slept with Leah mostly out of "duty"
Yet God showed favor
toward Leah and she gave
birth to HALF of Israel (6 of the 12 tribes), thus
becoming the third of Israel's Matriarchs.
Even though Rachel was
beautiful, and Jacob was deeply in love with her (can
you imagine WORKING 7 YEARS just
so he could marry her?), she was barren and became
jealous of Leah, her homely yet fertile sister.
Eventually she gave
birth to Joseph and died giving birth to Benjamin.
Ruth forsook her country and
family in order to worship the true God and became part
of Jesus' genealogy (Ruth 1:16; Matthew 1:5).
Elizabeth gave birth to
John the Baptist in her old age, was
filled with the Holy Spirit, and was so sensitive to
Him that her baby leaped, while still in her womb, at the
sound of Mary's greeting (Luke 1:41-45).
faith and obedience, upon hearing Gabriel's
Announcement about her conception and Virgin Birth of the
Messiah, were truly
remarkable (Luke 1:38).
This is especially
true when we consider she was
barely a teenager.
What we can learn from
these mothers is that God is
good, He is faithful, He is MERCIFUL, often chooses the
weak to confound the strong, and while NO MOTHER IS
PERFECT, He will bless and
use every woman that obeys Him to fulfill His purpose.
Happy Mother's Day.

INSIDE THE ARK
The Ark of the
Covenant made by Moses and placed first in the Tabernacle,
and later in the Temple, was
a replica of the Ark in heaven (Exodus 25:40;
The Ark disappeared
from the first temple shortly before the Babylonians
destroyed it in 586 B.C.
There was NO
ARK in the second temple.
The Ark's whereabouts
are officially "unknown" to this day.
There were three
things inside the Ark (underneath the Mercy Seat):
1. The Torah (or
Pentateuch, the first 5 Books of the Bible)
2. A pot of manna
3. The High Priest's
(Aaron's) rod, which had budded (Hebrews 9:4).
These items were
placed there at God's
command (Exodus 16:32).
He was VERY EXPLICIT
when He told Moses what to
put inside and IN WHICH ORDER.
When religionists tell
the story the emphasis is
usually placed on the Torah.
Little or no attention
is given to the manna or the High Priest's rod (gee, I
What could possibly be THE
What could these
items, placed IN THAT
PARTICULAR ORDER, SYMBOLIZE?
WHAT ELSE, but what
THE ENTIRE BIBLE IS ABOUT?
They represent God's
plan of Redemption.
NEVER BEEN, and WILL NEVER BE THROUGH THE TORAH:
"By the works of the
ONE WILL BE JUSTIFIED" (Romans 3:20; Galatians 2:16).
NO ONE INCLUDES
God's Law was followed
by the Manna OR BREAD OF LIFE, symbolizing
our wonderful, precious, HOLIEST, most Righteous, Lord
Jesus Christ (John 6:30-32).
He compared Himself to
Manna, and said that even as supernatural as it was, the
Manna itself wasn't the real "bread from heaven" or the
real "bread of Life", but Jesus is (John 6:48).
The Manna SYMBOLIZED
JESUS our one and only Savior
It symbolizes His Body
of flesh which was offered for our sins, as well as His
Substantial spiritual Body, which we are to spiritually
"eat" (John 6:53).
What might the
budding rod represent?
The rod represents THE
SPIRIT OF GOD, THE HOLY SPIRIT which Jesus would place
INSIDE each born-again (saved) individual (John 7:39).
The Spirit, in turn, would
sprout and produce the FRUIT OF THE SPIRIT (Numbers
Jesus promised to put
His OWN DIVINE NATURE, HIS OWN HOLY Spirit IN US, and
He DOES (John 14:26, Acts 2:4; 2 Peter 1:4).
He also promised that through
His Spirit we WOULD YIELD "MUCH FRUIT" (John 15:8).
The FRUIT of the
Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, faith,
meekness, and self-control (Galatians 5:22-23).
And what DOES
Scripture SAY ABOUT THE FRUIT OF THE SPIRIT?
AGAINST such THERE
IS NO LAW! (Galatians 5:23).
TORAH against such HOLY, PERFECT FRUIT!
That's why NOTHING
FULFILLS GOD'S LAW BUT JESUS, WHO IS LOVE PERSONIFIED,
who PUTS HIS OWN SPIRIT AND RIGHTEOUS NATURE IN US, AND WHO
PRODUCES IN US HIS INCORRUPTIBLE FRUIT (Romans 13:9-10;
The Ark with the Torah
scroll inside SYMBOLIZES THAT GOD'S LAW IS NOW WRITTEN IN
OUR HEARTS, as He also promised under the NEW TESTAMENT
But there's more...
The ORIGINAL Ark, the one in
heaven, as well as other heavenly things, HAD
TO BE PURIFIED WITH THE BLOOD OF JESUS (Hebrews
That's why He entered
the temple in heaven and TOOK HIS OWN BLOOD INTO THE HOLY
OF HOLIES AND PLACED IT ON
THE ARK'S LID OR MERCY SEAT.
Since the Ark on earth
was A COPY of the one in heaven...
And since the
Ark in heaven HAD TO be purified with the Blood of the Lamb
I guarantee that so
was the earthly Ark.
According to the
apocryphal book of 2 Maccabees 2:4-6, Jeremiah
HID the Ark before the Babylonians took Jerusalem, at God's
And he said "...As
for that place, it shall be
unknown until the time that God gather his people again
together, and receive them unto mercy.
Then shall the Lord SHOW THEM
THESE THINGS, and the glory of the Lord shall appear,
and the cloud also"... (Apocrypha, 2 Maccabees 2:7-8).
After Jesus' Second
Coming, when ALL 12 TRIBES are reunited in the Holy Land,
Israelites will discover that
the Ark made by Moses has remained in Israel all along.
And that the Blood
that Jesus poured out 2,000 years ago, as the Passover Lamb
of God IN ORDER TO REMOVE THE SIN OF THE WORLD, IS
STILL SITTING UPON THE MERCY SEAT.
Glory to Jesus! Glory
to Israel's Messiah! Glory to Israel's ONE and ONLY God!

Even though it's been
posted AS MYTH #42 on our Home Page for at least three
Even though I've
explained it several times in these daily messages...
We still hear from old
and new readers about a supposed "1,260-day
That is A
There is NO
There ISN'T a single
passage in Scripture that speaks of a 1,260-day
Every place that
speaks of its duration says "3½ years" (Daniel 7:25; 12:7;
Revelation 11:2; 13:5).
Wait a minute, aren't
1,260 days 3½ Hebrew years?
Yes and NO.
Yes, 1,260 days are,
roughly speaking, 3½ years.
For instance, if the
tribulation had begun on Passover 2015, and ENDED on Sukkot
2018, it would last 3½ years, but
the NUMBER OF DAYS between those Feasts is actually 1,270
1,260 days is AN
EXACT number OF DAYS.
3½ years is
NOT an EXACT number OF
"3½ years" can
be slightly more or slightly fewer days AND IT
WOULD STILL BE 3½ years.
This distinction IS
1,260 days is the
EXACT number OF DAYS the mysterious "woman" in
Revelation 12 is hidden in the desert, away from the
dragon's reach (Revelation 12:6).
1,260 days is also the
EXACT number OF DAYS that the Two Witnesses prophesy
during the tribulation (Revelation 11:3, 7).
AFTER the 1,260 days end,
the Two Witnesses are killed (Revelation 11:7-8), which
clearly shows that the tribulation IS STILL ON-GOING.
AFTER they are killed,
their dead corpses are exposed on Damascus Square for
At the END OF those 3½
days, they rise from the dead and ascend to heaven.
This happens while
their ENEMIES ARE WATCHING (Revelation 11:3, 7-12),
which proves the tribulation
It happens BEFORE
Jesus returns in His Second Coming which officially
ENDS the tribulation.
These biblical facts
alone would necessitate A
MINIMUM DURATION OF 1,264 days.
The Two Witnesses are
killed, die, resurrect and ascend, PRIOR TO the bowl
judgments and PRIOR TO the Second Coming.
That would bring the
tribulation's MINIMUM duration to AT LEAST 1,269 days.
For that reason ALONE,
it has to last a bit longer than 1,260 days.
When you add the
biblical facts that:
A. The tribulation begins
with the signs mentioned in Revelation 6:12.
B. The Church "COMES
OUT OF" the tribulation 10 DAYS LATER (Revelation 2:10;
brief period must be allowed AFTER the Rapture for the
trumpet judgments to take place, for the Two Witnesses to
begin prophesying, and for the temple's construction to
We are talking about A
MINIMUM DURATION OF 1,284-1,285 days.
That WOULD STILL BE 3½
years, as the Bible says.
Obviously, it would
exceed 1,260 days by AT LEAST 24-25 days.
In Daniel 12:7 Jesus
raises His hand to heaven and SWEARS BY HIMSELF that the
tribulation will last 3½ years.
However, the Hebrew
words He uses are EXTREMELY revealing: "lemoed, moedim
translation:"to the Feast, Feasts, and half".
We know, by the 70
weeks prophecy, that Jesus MUST return at the end of the
70th "week" or shemitta (Daniel 9:24-27).
We now know
UNDISPUTEDLY, from the Torah, that shemittas end on Sukkot
3½ years PRIOR TO Sukkot is
Counting FROM Passover,
"To the Feast (one Passover), Feasts (two Passovers), and A
HALF" takes us to Sukkot, exactly like Scripture says.
of which year the Rapture and Second Coming take place, the
tribulation MUST BEGIN on or near Passover.
MUST LAST at least 1,285 days.
There's NO WAY of
getting around these BIBLICAL facts.

THE NEED FOR CLARITY
WILL ANYONE KNOW what tune is being played UNLESS THERE
IS A DISTINCTION IN THE NOTES?
IF THE TRUMPET DOES NOT SOUND
A CLEAR CALL, who will get ready for battle?" (1
"For God IS
NOT THE AUTHOR OF CONFUSION... (1 Corinthians 14:33)
Many, many years ago,
the Lord impressed upon me the
ABSOLUTE NEED for clarity.
We can have the best
and most exciting teaching in the world: IF
IT IS NOT CONVEYED CLEARLY, we haven't accomplished
If others don't gain CLEAR,
PRECISE, UNAMBIGUOUS UNDERSTANDING of what we're
saying, we might as well be speaking to a wall.
The greatest message will
fall on deaf ears and become USELESS if it isn't CLEARLY

Apostles, and the Early Church had NOT preached A
CLEAR, CONSISTENT Gospel, there would be NO

also convey A PRINCIPLE.
And that principle
applies NOT only to speaking in tongues (which is USELESS
in the congregation unless there is a LEGITIMATE
interpreter) but to
communicating the oracles of God (1 Corinthians 14:19).
All of which brings us
to the 21st century.
Jesus hasn't changed.
His Gospel hasn't
We have THE
GREATEST Message the world has ever heard.
The Good News of FREE
SALVATION through faith (trust) in Jesus Christ HAS
THE SAME SAVING, TRANSFORMING, REVOLUTIONARY,
WORLD-CHANGING POWER today as it did in the first century.
Yet, for the most
part, seems to be falling on deaf ears.
The problem, then, is NOT
with THE Message.
The problem is with
The MESSENGERS have
DISTORTED THE Message, almost beyond recognition.
We CANNOT beat around
We need to be CLEAR
We need to be CLEAR
AND CONSISTENT in our teaching.
We need to STOP
preaching out of both sides of our mouths.
We CANNOT say that
Salvation, THE GREATEST BLESSING OF ALL, is
A FREE GIFT of God's Grace and then CONTRADICT
THAT by saying that UNLESS you "give" to a religious
charlatan posing as "minister" of Christ, God won't grant
you LESSER blessings.
We CANNOT tell the
audience one day that Salvation is purely by grace through
faith, and DOES NOT REQUIRE ANY WORKS, and a week later
tell them that if they don't
pay 10% of their salary to the local Christian club
(incorrectly called "church") that God will curse them.
We CANNOT say one day
that Jesus TOOK AWAY the sin of the world once and for
all, and is the ONLY Savior, and
three days later say that unless WE CONGREGATE IN A
BUILDING ON SATURDAY, we are not His children and are not
justified by His Grace.
That message CONTRADICTS the
Gospel, because it makes the 24-hour Sabbath CO-SAVIOR.
Saturday is CO-SAVIOR, then Jesus ISN'T the ONE and ONLY
Savior, and ONLY Way to God (John 14:6)
WEEK went by and NO ONE
received Christ, I'd be asking myself:
WHAT have I left out?
HOW can I make Salvation CLEARLY UNDERSTOOD to others? Am I
using words that are hard to understand? Am I communicating
in a language that impacts the audience and MAKES SENSE TO
THEM? Am I REALLY preaching
the TRUE Gospel of Grace or have I added or subtracted from
its timeless Message?
Let alone if
6 months, a year, or a WHOLE DECADE went by with NO

THE BORN-AGAIN MIND
As explained in
yesterday's message, ALL Christians SIN.
Our SPIRITS are
born-again and our SPIRITS are INCAPABLE OF sinning.
Problem is, our
MINDS have NOT been born-again... YET.
And our minds are
QUITE CAPABLE OF sinning.
The TENDENCY TO SIN - EVEN
WHEN WE'D GIVE ANYTHING TO STOP - is IN THE
UNREGENERATE HUMAN MIND.
Pause for a moment,
re-read that last paragraph, and LET IT SINK IN.
In order TO STOP
sinning, the human mind MUST
be born again.
There is NO WAY to
escape that reality.
Salvation is PERFECT and COMPLETE from God's perspective...
From earth's perspective, AT
THE MOMENT, our Salvation has manifested ONLY
Our FULL Salvation
will manifest ONLY when OUR MIND is born again.
This begs the
HOW is the human mind
The mind is born
again WHEN WE SEE JESUS, as
He is, Face to face.
Again: The mind is
born again WHEN WE SEE JESUS,
as He is, Face to face.
There is NO
OTHER WAY to FULLY renew the human mind.
If we seek such
renewal, the Holy Spirit will CLEANSE the mind to large
extent, the Word of God, if we meditate it and allow Him to

filth to a large extent.

He is, Face to face.
Not the HUMAN Jesus
that walked this earth 2,000 years ago.
glorified, risen, ascended Jesus who IS SPIRIT SUBSTANCE,
NOT human flesh.
Seeing Jesus, is what
will FULLY renew our mind.
When our mind is
renewed by His APPEARING, we
are transformed from mortal to immortal and translated into
the heavenly dimension.
That's what happened
to Enoch (Genesis 5:24; Hebrews 11:5).

The SIN PROBLEM was RESOLVED
- ONCE AND FOR ALL - 2,000 years ago, when Jesus DIED
FOR OUR SINS, poured out His SINLESS Blood, rose from the
dead, and ASCENDED to heaven.
He is the Lamb of
God, WHO TOOK AWAY the sin of
the world (John 1:29; 2 Corinthians 5:19; Hebrews
9:12;26; 14:10; 1 John 3:5).
SIN is GONE!!!
When we receive Jesus
into our hearts and PUT OUR COMPLETE TRUST IN HIM, and WHAT
HE DID to save us, we are born-again of His Spirit, and OUR
SINS are REMOVED, FORGOTTEN, and NEVER AGAIN TO BE
REMEMBERED (Hebrews 8:12).
From that moment, we
are RECONCILED TO GOD.
From that moment, and
ALTHOUGH WE STILL SIN, Jesus
CREDITS His OWN , PERFECT righteousness to us (2
From that moment, God
NO LONGER COUNTS ANY sin AGAINST us (2 Corinthians
Therefore, we are not
to live under guilt or condemnation, EVEN
WHEN WE SIN.
We are to COMPLETELY
TRUST and REST in the CONFIDENCE that Jesus HAS TOTALLY
AND FOREVER SAVED US.
There is NOW (after
Christ's Work of Salvation) NO CONDEMNATION for those who
are IN Christ Jesus! Romans 8:1).
I must have explained

and His Word.

Am I proud of it?
Do I WANT TO sin?
Do I wish I could

Because my mind has
not yet been TOTALLY renewed.
It has been renewed by

that SINS (Leviticus 5:1; 6:2; Numbers 15:27; Ezekiel
It's OUR NATURAL MIND
that causes those tendencies and weaknesses -- EVEN
AFTER we receive Christ (Romans 8:7).

That Way is to

ALL OR NOTHING
"SEEK and YOU
WILL FIND" (Matthew 7:7)
WILL FIND ME when you seek me WITH
ALL YOUR HEART" (Jeremiah 29:13).
Jesus never promised
we'd find Him if we sought Him with HALF our heart.
Jesus never promised
we'd find him if we sought him with ¾ of our heart.
Jesus never promised
we'd find Him if we sought Him WITH MOST of our heart.
Jesus never promised
we'd find Him if we sought Him with 99% of our heart.
He DID promise that we
would find Him if we seek Him with
ALL our heart.
After all, Jesus
gave it ALL for you: His Deity, His power, His glory,
His spirit, soul, body, life and blood.
If you want to define
this world's problems in a nutshell people either
DON'T seek God, or they seek Him with ONLY A PORTION OF
Their seeking God is motivated
BY FEAR, NOT by love.
They want JUST
ENOUGH of God TO NOT GO TO hell.
You wouldn't have much
of a relationship with your spouse, kids or friends, if you
interacted with them halfheartedly.
Yet, that is EXACTLY
the way most of us approach God.
Likewise, you wouldn't
have much of a relationship with your loved ones if your
interaction with them WAS BASED ON FEAR, instead of love.
RELIGION is for those who
only want SOME of God.
For those who
are FEARFUL of God.
For those who
ONLY WANT TO AVOID hell.
And Satan, who is the
biggest and most conniving opportunist, will
give them EXACTLY what they want:
smorgasbord OF RELIGION...
Just tell me WHAT YOU
WANT, and I'll get one of my
human pawns to INVENT IT FOR YOU!
Just name it...
O.K. we'll call it
We'll call that
Fine, we'll call it
Great, we'll call it
Sure, we'll call it
And if all that
fails, we'll call it Atheism.

forms of INVENTED Christianism...
How do you think

Science, Church of Christ, and Jehovah's Witnesses got

What they really
wanted is NOT TO BE LOST.
"Please God DON'T
We'll WORK to EARN NOT
going to hell.
Most of them ARE lost.
The VERY THING they
feared has COME UPON THEM (Job 3:25).
And even though by the
SHEER GRACE OF GOD most evangelicals preach enough Truth to
be saved, 99% of them are in the same boat:
"Please God, don't
send me to hell".
HOW ABOUT REPENTING (changing
the way we think) and
APPROACHING GOD THIS WAY:
"Jesus, you are SO
I want TO KNOW YOU WITH ALL
MY HEART, DEEPLY AND INTIMATELY - with NO ULTERIOR
MOTIVE... for the sheer
thrill and delight of EXPERIENCING YOU, MY MOST PRECIOUS
and ETERNAL Love."
Those who take this
approach WILL NEVER HAVE TO WORRY about hell.
If all who profess to
be Christian would seek Jesus
WITH ALL our hearts, we'd put every cult and every
distorted version of the Gospel OUT OF BUSINESS in no time.
WILL BE FOUND by every member of those cults WHO SEEKS HIM
with ALL their hearts - and He means, ALL -
of their hearts.
If every Jehovah's
Witness SOUGHT JESUS THAT WAY, THERE
WOULD BE no Jehovah's Witnesses.
If every Mormon sought
Jesus with ALL his/her heart,
there would be NO MORMONS.
If every human on
earth sought Jesus with ALL
of his/her heart - NOT out of fear of punishment, but
OUT OF LOVE, we'd have ourselves NEW HEAVENS and NEW
EARTH in the blink of an eye.
We would finally see
GOD'S KINGDOM ON EARTH.

SAY "born AGAIN of
water", which would be required in order to support the
false doctrine of baptismal regeneration. He simply
said "BORN of WATER".
referring to the water (amniotic fluid) that surrounds the
baby in his mother's womb, and that "breaks" when a woman
is about to give birth.. We are born "of water" first
in NATURAL child birth, then we're born AGAIN of Living
Three things happen at
1. We hear
the Word (ABOUT Jesus).
2. We repent
and receive Jesus (the LIVING Word) into
our innermost being.
3. Our sins are
Instantly WASHED AWAY by His Blood, and we RECEIVE A NEW
NATURE (God's own Nature) by being regenerated (born again)
by His Spirit.
That's what Jesus
meant when He said:
BELIEVES IN ME... FROM WITHIN HIM shall flow RIVERS
OF LIVING WATER.
He spoke OF
THE SPIRIT, whom THOSE WHO
BELIEVED IN Him WERE TO RECEIVE" (John 7:38-39).
The ONLY condition for
that LIVING WATER to flow WITHIN us is
to "believe (trust) in Him". He said NOTHING about baptism
If this LIVING water
WITHIN, as Jesus indicated, then
it CANNOT POSSIBLY REFER TO WATER baptism which is a ritual
performed entirely on
The Living Water
flowing from our spirit is
His OWN Holy Spirit.
Jesus PRECEDED that
statement by saying:
"If anyone is THIRSTY,
let him COME
TO ME AND DRINK".
"COME TO ME and
DRINK"... He DIDN'T say, "Let him be baptized in
We "DRINK" Jesus (the
Living Water) by RECEIVING HIM INTO OUR INNERMOST BEING
(stomach, belly) as we do when we DRINK WATER and it
goes ALL THE WAY IN...
How can ANYONE miss THAT
What A MESS has
religion made of God's Holy Word!
What A MESS has
religion made of the simple message of Salvation through
faith (TRUSTING Christ, and RECEIVING Him into the DEEPEST
parts of your being)!
But doesn't 1 Peter
3:21 say that WATER BAPTISM saves us?
NO. It says THE VERY
There were NO
PARAGRAPHS OR PUNCTUATION MARKS in the original Bible
They were placed
there AT THE CHOOSING OF the
translator, in this case Jerome, in the 4th century.
By then, as we've
explained many times, the
doctrine of REGENERATION THROUGH WATER BAPTISM was OFFICIAL
also claimed to have THE EXCLUSIVE RIGHT to "interpret"
The hierarchy in Rome
HAD ALREADY DECIDED - arbitrarily - that
the way to be "born again" was to dump some water on
COMMISSIONED BY Pope Damasus I to translate the Bible into
Latin. Accordingly, he placed a comma between the words
"saves us" and "NOT" thus
making sure that his, AND FUTURE TRANSLATIONS, REFLECTED
THE ESTABLISHED RELIGIOUS DOGMA OF REGENERATION BY WATER:
This is what the
original Greek text says:
This is what Jerome
Baptism SAVES, (comma)
Christian translator that came after Jerome DID
NOT question his translation, or his punctuation, and
ALLOWED that comma, and THAT
LIE, to remain.
He pulled a similar
stunt in James 2:14, by putting a comma after
"him" and thereby CHANGING THE INTENDED, HOLY-SPIRIT
like NO TRANSLATOR (apparently) has ever questioned the use
of the word "pay" in Hebrews 7:9, when
IT ISN'T EVEN IN THE ORIGINAL Greek text:
How come? Because
ORGANIZED RELIGION had already DECIDED that the "tithe"
needed to be "revived", only this time it wouldn't be
produce, grains and cattle (as under the Law) but
COLD, HARD CASH.
Remembering that Greek
construction is quite different from English, this is what
the original text says:
"And its counterpart,
putting away filthiness of the flesh, ON
THE CONTRARY (what
saves is) DEMANDING A GOOD CONSCIENCE TOWARD God by the
Resurrection of Jesus Christ".
Water baptism DOESN'T
SAVE by removing dirt from the body (and that's ALL it
saves is DEMANDING (requesting) A CLEAR CONSCIENCE (forgiveness
of sin) from God, by the
Resurrection of Jesus Christ (Compare to Hebrews 9:14;
Making such request or
"demand" TAKES FAITH. We must BELIEVE (trust) that
God will GRANT IT. Otherwise, why even bother
requesting it ?
Peter was in fact
saying "the baptism that saves you is
NOT THE ONE with water, but the one that takes place IN
YOUR CONSCIENCE when the Holy Spirit baptizes you into
Christ, and His Living Water starts flowing within (1
passage compares water baptism to Noah and his family
saying they were "saved" (delivered from perishing in the
flood) THROUGH WATER:
The flood water DIDN'T
SAVE THEIR SOULS: neither will WATER BAPTISM SAVE YOUR
What "SAVED THEM" (FROM DYING
IN THE FLOOD) WAS TRUSTING GOD'S Word that He would send a
flood and GETTING INSIDE THE ARK.
Noah and the 7 people
with him all died, went to Sheol, and were held captive
there UNTIL Jesus died and resurrected (Matthew 27:51-53).
It was Jesus' death on the
cross, His sinless Blood, and Resurrection THAT SAVED THEM,
saved me, and WILL
JESUS ONLY, NOT
JESUS PLUS BAPTISM,NOT Jesus plus works
of obedience, NOR
Jesus plus ANYTHING.
The only thing that WILL SAVE
YOUR SOUL, as this verse says, IS
ASKING JESUS TO SAVE IT AND TO GIVE YOU A CLEAR
CONSCIENCE, made clean BY HIS HOLY SPIRIT and His
INFINITELY PRECIOUS BLOOD.
