"We know that whosoever
is born of God sins not; but he
that is begotten of God KEEPS HIMSELF, AND THAT WICKED ONE
TOUCHES HIM NOT" (1 John 5:18).
There is a place in
God where we become UNTOUCHABLE.
touch us or bring ANY harm to our lives, nor
can any evil spirit.
In the Book of Job we
find that Job had a HEDGE OF PROTECTION around his life,
which Satan could not penetrate (Job 1:10).
That hedge of protection was
Job's faith (TRUST) IN God.
As long as Job
TRUSTED God, and had NO FEAR, he was supernaturally
WHEN Job began TO
THINK fearful thoughts he
allowed fear (SIN) TO ENTER HIS LIFE and TORE THE HEDGE
DOWN (Job 3:25).
He became easy prey
Faith (TRUST) WORKS
BY Love (Galatians 5:6).
Perfect Love CASTS
OUT FEAR (1 John 4:18).
When fear is cast
out, Satan is cast out and HAS
NOTHING to work with.
Again: when fear is
CAST OUT (by Perfect Love - Jesus) Satan has
NOTHING with which to work.
When we keep
ourselves (in our Divine, born-again Nature, who is GOD
HIMSELF, LOVE HIMSELF) the
evil one touches us not!!!
When we KEEP
Jesus and walking in Divine Love, the creep CAN'T TOUCH
He COULDN'T touch
Adam or Eve, UNTIL Adam opened
the door by NOT walking in Love (betraying God and
his wife) and then Eve swung
it all the way open BY NOT TRUSTING God.
Well, wait a minute,
it says there "whoever is born of God sins not"...
sinning A CONDITION for this promise?
of little TRUST!
Haven't you read
WHATEVER is NOT
of faith (trust) IS
The cause of ALL sin is NOT
That's what happened
in Eden. And that's what happens to us.
John talks about
Divine Love throughout his marvelous Epistle.
Did John KNOW of what
tells us that he was thrown IN A POT OF BOILING OIL by
barbarous Roman Emperor Domitian.
Instead of turning
into a Jewish fry, he emerged INTACT.
In utter frustration,
Domitian then had John exiled to Patmos where Jesus gave
him His awesome Revelation.
THIS is THE
VICTORY that overcomes the world (1 John 5:4):
THIS is THE
VICTORY that overcomes Satan:
SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 29,
"Praise to the God
and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who
HAS BLESSED US in the heavenly realms WITH EVERY SPIRITUAL
BLESSING in Christ" (Ephesians 1:3).
God says that NO
ONE can curse what He has blessed (Numbers
He also says that
Christ HAS DELIVERED US FROM THE CURSE of the
law (Galatians 3:13).
"ministries" have been built around so-called
"ministries" are NOT aimed at the unsaved, but to
you want to break your "generational curses" that,
supposedly, are keeping you from achieving $ucce$$, you
have to BUY the CD or DVD series the "minister" hawks in
order to find out how to "get deliverance".
NOT A WORD in the entire Bible that mentions
Those who spread that
FEAR, which is NOT of God (2 Timothy 1:7; 1
would have you believe that Satan can
curse those whom Jesus saved, cleansed THRU HIS BLOOD,
sanctified and BLESSED.
They'd have you
Satan's curses have more power than God's blessings. Hence
making Satan "more powerful" than God.
They DISTORT Exodus
20:5; 34:7; Numbers 14:18; and Deuteronomy 5:9.
In each of those
verses God says that He VISITS the
iniquity of the fathers upon the children, and upon the
children's children, unto
the third and to the fourth generation.
IT DOESN'T SAY that
God curses children for the iniquity of their fathers.
Or that if a father
does something wrong, it brings a curse that is passed
down to his children, grandchildren and great
NO SUCH THING IS
TAUGHT IN THE BIBLE.
The Hebrew Word poked,
means TO VISIT.
When we VISIT
someone, we get to see them, and find out what's going on
in their lives.
God SEES and is AWARE
OF ("visits") THE WICKEDNESS
fathers pass down to their children, grandchildren, great
grandchildren, and so forth.
talking about cursing anyone. In fact the word "curse"
(arar) is not even in
He's referring to fathers
passing down bad things (iniquity) through words and BY
He's talking about parents
who TEACH THEIR CHILDREN TO SIN.
Well, you're wrong, WHAT
KIND OF PARENT WOULD DO THAT?
If a son has a
hard-drinking, womanizing father who repeatedly told him
that, in order to be "a real man" one must act that way,
IT'S QUITE PROBABLE THAT THE SON WILL ACT IN LIKE MANNER,
SINCE HE LEARNED IT FROM HIS FATHER.
It's also quite
likely that the son WILL
PASS THAT SINFUL WAY OF THINKING AND LIVING DOWN TO HIS
SON, AND SO ON...
If a little girl had
a lying or promiscuous mother who set a bad example for
her, it's quite probable that, when she reaches
adolescence, she will lie and be a slut just like mom.
That's what it's
talking about. Those verses were
intended TO MOTIVATE PARENTS TO INSTRUCT THEIR CHILDREN IN
RIGHTEOUSNESS AND SET A GOOD EXAMPLE to be passed down to
their children and future generations: Nothing more,
These verses DON'T
SAY that children are BLAMED FOR the wickedness of their
parents or ancestors, either.
Ezekiel 18:20 says
THE VERY OPPOSITE:
"The soul that sins,
it shall die. THE
SON SHALL NOT BEAR THE INIQUITY OF THE FATHER, NEITHER
SHALL THE FATHER BEAR THE INIQUITY OF THE SON: the
righteousness of the righteous shall be upon him, and the
wickedness of the wicked shall be upon him".
Can't say it any
clearer than that.
The other Scripture
they distort is Matthew 12:43-45:
"When the unclean
spirit is gone OUT OF A MAN, he walks through dry places,
seeking rest, and finds none.
Then he said, I will
return into my house FROM WHERE I CAME OUT; and when he is
come, he finds it empty, swept, and garnished.
Then he goes, and
takes with himself seven other spirits more wicked than
himself, and they enter in and dwell there: and the
last state OF THAT MAN is worse than the first. Even so
shall it be also unto THIS wicked generation".
They point out that
the word for "house" in this passage, oikon, can
also figuratively mean "family". That much is true.
What is NOT TRUE is that the
evil spirit that guy had will possess or oppress other
members of his family. It doesn't say that ANYWHERE. THAT
is an ABSOLUTE LIE.
The text is quite
clear that THE STATE OF
THAT MAN (not the members of his family) is
worse than before.
It DOESN'T SAY that
the evil spirit will be passed down to that man's future
Again, the Greek is
painstakingly clear, "so it
shall be unto THIS wicked generation",NOT
to FUTURE generations.
In context, Jesus had
berated THE GENERATION of His day, first for
blaspheming the Holy Spirit by rejecting Him and
attributing His works to Beelzebub (Matthew 12:34),
secondly for requesting a
sign as a "condition" to believe in Him (Matthew
12:39,40), thirdly for their
unbelief (Matthew 12:41) and fourthly for
rejecting His Word and Wisdom (Matthew 12:42).
Jesus spoke those
about THIS (His) generation, NOT about future generations.
He spoke those words BEFORE GOING
demon possession is quite rare, since Jesus defeated Satan
and every evil spirit.
demons can't just come and possess or oppress whoever they
One would have to ACTIVELY,
PERSISTENTLY and PREMEDITATEDLY SEEK TO BE POSSESSED.
NO BORN-AGAIN child
of God can be possessed by Satan or by an evil spirit,
If that were
possible, it would mean that the evil spirit is stronger
than Jesus (perish the very idea) and that
he can kick Jesus out of you and wrest Jesus'
possession (you) away from Him.
You want my advice? Give
your whole heart and life to Jesus Christ,get
FILLED WITH HIS HOLY SPIRIT,LIVE
IN HIM AND FOR HIM, walk in His love, with NO FEAR, and
throw those stupid CD's where they belong:
IN THE TRASH.
WHERE YOUR TREASURE IS
"A good man OUT
OF THE GOOD TREASURE OF THE HEART BRINGS FORTH GOOD THINGS:
and an evil man out of the evil treasure brings forth evil
things" (Matthew 12:35)
A frequent accusation
leveled against those who preach the TRUE Gospel of God's
Grace is that we do not
preach against sinning.
Sure we do.
We just don't
make SIN the MAIN FOCUS of our preaching.
We make JESUS -- who
is BOTH the
SOLUTION TO sin, and the One who REMOVED ALL SIN FOR ALL
the MAIN FOCUS.
And I, for one, make
NO APOLOGY for it.
God's Word says,
clear as daylight, that once
we receive Jesus, our sins are forgiven, and WE
SHOULD HAVE NO MORE CONSCIOUSNESS OF SIN (Hebrews
It also says that
RECONCILED US TO God the Father, and that He NO LONGER
COUNTS ANY SIN AGAINST US (2 Corinthians 5:19).
There are those who
make sin and the Law the focus of their teaching.
I've never been in
that camp and, by God's Grace, NEVER WILL BE.
I do not get up each
morning and say to myself:
"I will not fall into
idolatry today, nor take God's Name in vain, nor forget
the true Sabbath (who is Jesus Himself and not a 24-hour
day), I won't dishonor my father or mother, I won't kill,
won't commit sexual immorality, won't lie and won't
To do that not only
makes us CONSCIOUS OF sin, but
After all, God's Word
ALSO SAYS that if
we break JUST ONE commandment, we are guilty of
breaking the entire Law! (James 2:8-10).
Sin consciousness MAKES
US SIN MORE, NOT LESS!
The first thoughts
that come into my mind are always about Jesus.
My days BEGIN
WITH Jesus, and END with Jesus: glory to Him from
everlasting to everlasting!
I do my best to STAY
FOCUSED ON JESUS WITHIN ME throughout the day.
What I focus on at
the start of each day, and throughout the day, is
how wonderful Jesus is, HOW MUCH He loves me, and HOW MUCH
I love and adore Him.
I start off the day
with an attitude of Love and
PRAISE toward Him, and try to stay in that frame of spirit
and mind throughout the day.
While we all, at some
point, fall short of God's glory because our minds have
not been totally renewed, I find that such
attitude KEEPS SIN AT BAY.
Focus on Jesus and
you will RARELY sin.
When you do, you have
TOTAL CONFIDENCE that your sin(s) is/are ALREADY FORGIVEN
(1 John 1:7).
Focus on sin and
commandments, and YOU WILL SIN A LOT.
You'll also LIVE IN
FEAR of breaking ANY commandment and, hence, breaking
Temptation will be
CONSTANTLY knocking on your door.
And you WILL NEVER BE
SAVED because Salvation is obtained BY
GRACE ONLY THROUGH FAITH (TRUST) ONLY (Ephesians
FAITH (TRUST) IS THE
OPPOSITE OF fear.
Salvation IS NOT ATTAINED
through "commandment keeping". NEVER HAS BEEN AND NEVER
commandments, and CONDEMNATION
WILL HOVER OVER YOUR HEAD like a dark cloud on an overcast
That's why Jesus
taught that not just the Torah, but THE WHOLE BIBLE - ALL
the Law and ALL the prophets - hang on that ONE GREATEST
Love the Lord your God with
ALL your heart, and with ALL your soul, and
with ALL YOUR MIND (Matthew 22:37).
Focus on the Jesus
WHO LIVES INSIDE, IN YOUR HEART, and He will bring forth
GOOD THINGS out of you.
Get to KNOW the Son
and He will make you FREE INDEED (John 8:36).
Focus on Jesus, His
Goodness (Grace) and His Love, and you
won't ever have to worry about sin or commandments.
FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 27,
OOOPS! I FORGOT THE KIDNEYS
Every believer in
Christ MUST KNOW WHERE his/her spirit is located.
The Bible says unless
we are born OF THE SPIRIT, we cannot enter God's
Kingdom (John 3:5).
It's in our spirit that
Jesus LIVES by His Spirit (1 Corinthians 6:17).
The Bible COMMANDS US
to "walk in the spirit" (Galatians
The Bible COMMANDS US
to "LIVE in the spirit" (Romans
8:2; Galatians 5:25; Philippians 3:3):
HOW can we LIVE
IN something whose location
we don't know and can't even find?
HOW can we LIVE
IN something that
we TOTALLY IGNORE?
... That we can't
even detect and to which, consequently, we CAN'T PAY ANY
I've taught often on
where the human spirit is located:
According to Daniel
7:15, it's in "the
According to Jesus
OUR BELLY or "innermost being" (John 7:38-39)
This is all true and
However, the Bible
mentions another part of the human anatomy WHERE THE
ALSO LOCATED and
WHICH IS ALSO IN "the MIDST of our bodies":
Every time I teach on
it, I make a mental note to include THE KIDNEYS, and then
forget to do so!
The King James
Version of the Bible usually renders the Hebrew Kilyah and
the Greek nephrous as "reins", while other
translations use the words "mind", "inward parts", or
both words literally mean "kidneys".
That's why a doctor
who specializes in treatment of kidneys and kidney disease
is called nephrologist.
When Jesus says in
Revelation 2:23: "...and all the churches shall know that
I am He who searches the minds (nephrous) and
hearts (kardias)", He's literally saying He
searches the hearts and the kidneys!
Similarly, when David
says in Psalm 16:7:
"I will bless the
LORD, who has given me counsel: my heart (kilyah) also
instructs me in the night seasons".
He literally says "MY
KIDNEYS also instruct
me in the night".
There are a number of
other Scriptures that use the word "kidneys" in similar
fashion referring (figuratively) to a person's deepest
Job 16:13; 19:27;
Psalms 7:9; 26:2; 73:21; 139:13; Proverbs 23:16; Isaiah
11:5; Jeremiah 11:20; 12:2; 17:10; 20:12; Lamentations
What's even more
interesting: Most of these verses speak of the "heart" and
the "kidneys" as DISTINCT
AND SEPARATE PARTS of our SPIRITS (innermost being).
Oh, dear God... I
just realized as I typed this that the
"kidneys" are what Romans 8:27 refers to as "THE MIND OF
the spirit". It's the part of the human spirit THAT
I've used that mind
FOR YEARS when I wanted to communicate with God (other
than in unknown tongues) and NOT ALLOW Satan to intercept
my part of the discussion.
The Holy Spirit has
even prompted me, at times, TO SWITCH from the natural
mind (in my head) to the spirit's mind (in my midst) and,
now I know more specifically, in
the STOMACH-KIDNEY area!
Don't give me that
strange look... These things ARE in the Bible, and have
been there for
THOUSANDS of years.
It's too bad that
YOUR RELIGION never mentions them.
Besides the testimony
of Scripture, those who EXPERIENCE Christ on a regular
basis, KNOW INSTINCTIVELY that it is so:
It's from the kidney area
that we experience that thrilling sense of "elevation", when
we commune intimately with Christ, almost
as though we're floating or suspended effortlessly in
So, the spirit is
located in our stomachs, but also in
our entire MIDDLE SECTION, all the way around, into our
worshipers worship God IN SPIRIT (John 4:23-24), next
time your worship Jesus do so from the MIDDLE of your
body, from the stomach AND... don't forget, FROM

places like the Middle East, Africa and Asia.
Oh Jesus, oh precious
Holy Spirit, be with them in A VERY SPECIAL WAY: PROTECT

That we are with them IN
SPIRIT, as well as in our hearts and prayers. Give
them your peace in the midst of turmoil, and your truly
amazing Grace, to STAND FOR YOU UNTIL THE VERY END.

Every once in a while
I come across a video excoriating this brother in Christ.
He is regularly
called a false prophet and there are a number of videos
that call him satanic.
Others dislike his
teaching style, or the fact that, before he launched his
own ministry and became well-known, he used to work as
Oral Roberts' chauffeur and pilot.
I HAVE BEEN HIGHLY CRITICAL
of "word of faith" teachers, INCLUDING Ken. That's NOT
LIKELY to change anytime soon.
And I have INTENSE
DISLIKE for ANYTHING or ANYONE associated with Oral
However, it's one
thing to attack A FALSE
DOCTRINE, it's another to
call a brother WHO PREACHES THE GOSPEL - HOWEVER
MISGUIDED SOME OF HIS OTHER TEACHING MAY BE - AN
INSTRUMENT OF SATAN.
I have attacked the
doctrine, and labeled some of these preachers greedy and
con artists (which they ARE), but I can't recall a single
instance when I've called ANYONE who preaches the Gospel
of Grace and brings people to saving knowledge of Jesus
either a "false prophet" or an instrument of Satan.
I have EVER done it, I humbly and publicly apologize for
it and REPENT before Jesus and you.
I have NO
PROBLEM with the "word of faith" teaching on Salvation,
being filled with the Spirit, studying Scripture, or the
power of the Word SPOKEN
IN THE SPIRIT.
(If it's NOT spoken
in the Spirit, it's useless
and merely vain repetition).
teachings on so-called "tithing" and "give in order to
get" - as if God's favor could be EARNED or BOUGHT - are
NOT ONLY UNBIBLICAL, self-serving, and inconsiderate but,
to put it bluntly, AN
I would be a liar and
a hypocrite if I said that
I'm NOT REPULSED by the latter.
There's also MUCH
contradiction in their teaching. And their NON-STOP
emphasis on money and material stuff is also UNBIBLICAL
and downright offensive.
Holy Spirit spoke CLEARLY to my spirit that I need to
write this message. And when my Jesus says "jump" my
usual answer is "HOW HIGH?"
Even when I DON'T
LIKE the assignment...
AS WRONG, deceitful,
contradictory, and manipulative as their teaching on
giving and "tithing" may be, as DISHONEST as some of their
self-promoting tactics are, I
need to acknowledge and EXPRESS MY GRATITUDE to Kenneth
Copeland for ONE HUGE BLESSING:
It was Kenneth who led me
MANY YEARS AGO - when I was still a babe in Christ - to
receiving the INFILLING of the Holy Spirit.
He quoted Luke 11:13:
"if you, being evil, KNOW HOW TO GIVE GOOD GIFTS TO YOUR
CHILDREN, HOW MUCH MORE will
your Father in heaven give the Holy Spirit to those who
He said if we wanted
to be filled with the Holy Spirit, (he called it
"baptized" - wrong terminology, but I knew what he meant) we
needed to meditate that Scripture, believe it, and then CONFIDENTLY
ASK GOD TO FILL ME WITH HIS HOLY SPIRIT, FULLY EXPECTING
HIM TO DO IT.
Long story short: I
did, and God did.
Praise His Name
I will never accept the
"word of faith" doctrine of endless confessions, "sowing
seeds" (meaning MONEY) or their lavish lifestyles at the
expense of DUMB sheep with lotto mentalities... Or their
callous disregard for those they hurt, confuse and
being filled with the Spirit, which is PRICELESS, I MUST
GIVE CREDIT WHERE CREDIT IS DUE...
YOU, Father, Son and Holy Spirit for FILLING me with your
most Holy Spirit.
YOU, Kenneth Copeland, for accurately instructing me on
HOW TO BE FILLED with the Holy Spirit.
The great irony is that it
was that WONDERFUL Holy Spirit who soon after made me
realize - from the Scriptures - that the so-called
prosperity Gospel is WRONG ON SO MANY areas.
I am confident that
Jesus will straighten all of us out soon enough, MYSELF
But no matter HOW MUCH I may
dislike that teaching, no matter HOW MUCH I can prove with
the Bible that it's a bunch of hogwash... I still have
to acknowledge that - where
SALVATION is concerned -- Ken preaches the true Gospel of
Grace, leads people to being filled with the Spirit, and
teaches victory in Jesus, not defeat.
There are brothers
and sisters who out of ignorance, jealousy or carnality TAKE
THEIR DISPLEASURE TO THE EXTREME and call ANYONE who
DOESN'T see eye to eye with them "false prophet" or
"servant of Satan" - even
though that person preaches the true Gospel of Salvation.
THAT PRACTICE NEEDS
It's one thing to
EXPOSE false doctrine, it's
another thing to call a born-again child of God, WASHED IN
THE BLOOD OF JESUS - regardless of how unsavory
his antics may be -- a false
prophet or son of Satan.
As much as we may DISLIKE
the messenger, and LARGE PORTIONS OF HIS MESSAGE, Satan DOESN'T
PREACH THE GOSPEL. And Satan DOESN'T tell anyone how to be

However, just like a
clay pot can have SOME
water, or the same pot can be FILLED
Some SAVED people HAVE
Some SAVED people are FILLED
with the Spirit.
The FILLING of the
Spirit is a wonderful experience, usually accompanied by a
tingly feeling of extreme joy and speaking in tongues
(Acts 2:4; 10:44-46).
IMPOSSIBLE to be saved WITHOUT HAVING the Holy Spirit
INSIDE, BEING FILLED with
the Spirit IS NOT - repeat, NOT
- necessary for Salvation.
That means that speaking
in tongues IS NOT NECESSARY for Salvation (1
The EXPERIENCE of
being FILLED with the Holy Spirit and speaking in tongues
is EXTREMELY DESIRABLE and
NOT essential to Salvation.
I'm emphasizing it
and stating it as clearly as I know how because we get
this question CONSTANTLY.
Having said that,I
don't get WHY ANY believer would settle for ONLY "SOME" of
the Spirit when they could have THE FULLNESS of the
Spirit (Ephesians 5:18).
Just like I don't
know why anyone would
want to experience SOME of Christ as opposed to ALL of
the FILLING of the Spirit, and relying CONSTANTLY on the
Spirit's input, revelation and guidance, I
can't even imagine life without Him.
But to those who are
born-again and for whatever religious reason DO NOT WANT
to be filled with the Spirit or are downright afraid to
speak in tongues and/or to fully surrender to the Spirit, no
need to worry:
He won't force His way into your
heart or life.
If you want Him, you
need to invite Him, and RECEIVE His FULLNESS, just like
you did when you received Jesus for the first time.
To sum up: ALL
who are saved - without exception - HAVE the Holy Spirit
in their hearts.
NOT all who are saved speak
in tongues, THOUGH I HIGHLY RECOMMEND IT.

deliverance to the captives, recovery of sight to the
blind and to

oppressed) by the devil (Luke 4:18-20).
If JESUS needed

Church was A SPIRITUAL ENTITY, as Christ intended it to be (John
3:5; Romans 8:9).
Jesus said that
He would "build His Church" and that "the gates
of hell" would NOT prevail against it (Matthew 16:18).
SAID that a Roman Emperor would "build His
SAID His Church was a RELIGIOUS INSTITUTION.
SAID it would be headquartered in Rome.
His Church was born, and
ALWAYS headquartered in, Jerusalem NOT Rome
(Acts 2:1-6; 8:1; 15:4).
If you had been
ruthlessly persecuted for 300 years and, then, all of a
sudden the Roman Emperor turns the tables on his murderous
predecessors AND SHOWS UNPRECEDENTED FAVOR to
If he proposes to
institutionalize the Christian faith, turn it into a
religion, so it could be "legal" throughout his empire,
and all he requires in exchange is orthodoxy...
Would you tell that Emperor
that Christ might reappear NEXT YEAR and that his
reign WOULD END, and BE REPLACED BY Jesus' reign on earth?
Or would you seek to
PLEASE HIM by saying that, yes,
Christ will return "someday" in the FAAAR DISTANT
FUTURE... NO ONE KNOWS WHEN... and, by the time He
returns, will pose no threat to Constantine's reign or,
for that matter, to the Roman Empire?
Would you say that
God's Kingdom on earth would manifest WHEN JESUS RETURNS
TO REIGN with his (raptured) saints?
Wouldn't it be more
pleasing to the Emperor, who has shown so much "kindness",
to say that God's Kingdom
was the same as Constantine's kingdom, and that God's
Kingdom on earth is really the "Christian" institution
that he created AS PART OF HIS RULING EMPIRE?
WHY ON EARTH do you think
they invented the FALSE, UNBIBLICAL office of "Pope"?
Constantine was POLITICAL Emperor
over his empire, and the "Pope" was the RELIGIOUS Emperor
of the SUPPOSED "Kingdom of Christ" on earth, which
was PART OF that empire.
WHY ELSE, would the Pope
call himself "the Vicar (representative, substitute) OF
Christ" on earth?
Wouldn't it make more
sense to say that the
Millennium is NOT some blessed Era in which Jesus Himself
will rule the earth, but rather that
it is synonymous with the CURRENT Emperor's kingdom?
Thus inventing the
FALSE amillennialist doctrine?
That is PRECISELY what
The post-trib Rapture is
simply ONE MORE WAY in which the corrupt 4th century
religious hierarchy COMPROMISED the Christian Message, to
merge with the pagan society it sought to appease.
Just like they
turned Mary into a goddess to substitute for Venus-Aphrodite.
they invented the mother-child cult of Mary holding baby
Jesus to substitute for Venus holding her baby Aeneas.
Just like they
invented that Mary is the "Blessed Mother of the Church"
as Venus was "the Divine Mother of all Romans" through her
Just like they COMPROMISED
THE GOSPEL itself by making Salvation
CONTINGENT ON WORKS, rather
than on faith in Christ ONLY (Ephesians 2:8-9).
This, despite Paul's
warning, that ANYONE
- even an angel from heaven - that preaches ANOTHER Gospel
is ANATHEMA (Galatians 1:8).
This, despite Paul's
clear teaching that
if Salvation is BY GRACE, then IT IS NO LONGER BY WORKS,
OTHERWISE "GRACE IS NO MORE GRACE" (Romans
It's one thing to
believe in a post-trib Rapture OUT OF IGNORANCE, simply because
that's what we've been taught (more like brainwashed) by
It's ANOTHER THING to
DELIBERATELY IGNORE the overwhelming, ironclad biblical
evidence for pre-trib, and SIDE WITH PAGANS.
Those who teach
post-trib can call themselves "evangelical" ‘til their
lying faces turn Cardinal red:THEY
ARE TEACHING ROMAN Catholic doctrine INVENTED in the 4th
Those who teach

HOW TO IMPRESS GOD
Do you think for a
moment that God is impressed
with today's Church?
Do you think He's
impressed BY HUGE BUILDINGS, auditoriums, networks,
recording studios or TV shows?
"Christian leaders", who lack vision and leadership? Who
have divided Jesus' Body into so many opposing fragments
it's almost unrecognizable?
He impressed, perhaps, with all the theological degrees
THE FLESH bestows? With all the "Masters" and
"Doctors" of Divinity who boastfully go around DISPENSING
STERILE RELIGION... but
wouldn't recognize God's Spirit if He spit in their BLIND
Is He impressed with
the Church's teachings? With the "kingdom now",
"give-to-get", "work for salvation", British Israelism,
liberation theology, "name-it-and-claim-it" materialistic,
Or is He impressed by
opulent lifestyles? By how many mansions they own? Or how
much money they have in the bank? Or how many books or
CD's they've sold? Or how many Rolexes they wear? How many
private airplanes they own? How many Bentleys they drive?
How many people attend their congregation?.Or the number
of bodyguards in their personal entourage?

WORLDLY. NOTHING of
this world impresses Him.

FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 20,
DID GOD EXPECT ANYONE TO
KEEP THE LAW ?
When God gave Israel
the Law at Sinai, did He
expect ANY NATURAL HUMAN to ever keep it?
Well, WHAT A DUMB
Of course, He did!
Why would God have given the Law if He didn't intend for
them to keep it?
1. Because He wanted
to PROVE TO THEM - beyond a
shadow of a doubt -- that they'd NEVER be able to keep it.
2. Because He wanted
to PROVE TO THEM that they
COULD NEVER save themselves from sin, death and
damnation, or even HELP in
3. Because He wanted
them to be so thoroughly
convinced OF THEIR TOTAL IMPOTENCE to save themselves, or
to earn-merit their way into His Kingdom, that they would
TOTALLY THROW THEMSELVES AT HIS MERCY.
4. So that they
THEIR ENTIRE TRUST in the Savior that He would send them
1,500 years later.
Well, that's not what
MY RELIGION teaches!
God gave the Law so
that Israelites would keep it!
DID HE, as PART OF that Law, PRESCRIBE
ANIMAL SACRIFICES FOR
SIN? (Leviticus chapter 4)
And, not just once,
but TWICE A DAY... EACH
AND EVERY DAY...YEAR,
AFTER YEAR, AFTER YEAR... NON-STOP (Exodus
29:39; 30:7-8; Numbers 28:4).
If Israelites had
kept the Law they WOULD HAVE NEVER SINNED.
If they kept the Law
and NEVER SINNED, they would
need NO ANIMAL SACRIFICES FOR
If God EXPECTED
Israel to keep the Law, and NOT sin, then
WHY ON EARTH would He ORDER those sacrifices FOR
1. Because He
NEVER EXPECTED them to keep the Law.
2. Because God
KNEW IN ADVANCE that they'd break it - REPEATEDLY.
3. Because God
knew FULL WELL when He gave them the Law that trying to
keep it would be an exercise in futility.
4. It was USELESS to
try to obey the Law 3.500 years ago. That's
why He gave them ANIMAL blood to temporarily cover
Just like it's a TOTAL WASTE
of time and energy to even try to live under the Sinai Law
That's why He
gave us THE BLOOD OF JESUS, which removed ALL sin
-- once and for all (Hebrews 9:12,26: 10:14; 1 John 3:5)
5. Because God wanted
His people to realize that
NO ONE BUT JESUS has ever fulfilled God's Law
ONE BUT JESUS ever will.
That's why TODAY --
AFTER Jesus' death, Resurrection and Ascension -- God
DOESN'T EXPECT ANYONE to live under the Law.
WANT ANYONE to live under Law, because
THE LAW CAN'T SAVE YOU.
ONLY JESUS saves.
Those who want to
live UNDER the Law, make
Jesus' Blood INSUFFICIENT TO SAVE.
His Sacrifice is NOT
enough to save since, according
to them, it must
be accompanied by Law keeping.
Sacrifice ALONE is NOT sufficient to save, then we treat
the sacred, sinless Blood of Jesus as IMPURE, and NO
BETTER than animal blood to remove sin (Hebrews
Those who do this ARE
HEADED STRAIGHT TO HELL.
I don't care HOW
MUCH RELIGION THEY GOT, I

the Blood of Jesus DIDN'T get the job done either, WHAT

WHO IS ABADDON ?
Abaddon, as he is
known in Hebrew, or Apollyon, in Greek, meaning
"the Destroyer" seems to capture the attention, and
IMAGINATION, of many Christians.
Entire books and
eschatological scenarios have been fabricated around THIS
BEING mentioned ONLY in Revelation 9:11.
Even in the 19th
century, some wanted to make Napoleon Bonaparte the
Antichrist based on the similarity between the names
"Napoleon" and "Apollyon".
Although Apollyon is
mentioned ONLY ONCE in the New Testament, the
name Abaddon is mentioned several times in the Old
Testament, always referring TO A PLACE, not a being (Job
26:6; 28:22; 31:12; Psalm 88:11; Proverbs 15:11).
A place of
DESTRUCTION AND RUIN.
According to Proverbs
5:11, Abaddon is different
And according to that
same verse and others, Sheol
and Abaddon were both OPEN in the Old Testament.
When Jesus died, rose
from the death and triumphantly ASCENDED into heaven, He
told us NOT ONLY that "He lives FOREVERMORE" BUT THAT HE
NOW HAS THE KEYS OF DEATH AND HADES (Revelation 1:18).
Since the abyss or
bottomless pit is a portion of Hades, Jesus
used those keys TO LOCK THESE DEMONS UP in the pit.
That's why demonic
activity which was frequent
and commonplace up to His time, has become virtually
non-existent after He rose from the dead, LOCKED UP
ALL DEMONS IN the Abyss, and ascended to heaven.
That's why the abyss
or bottomless pit MUST BE OPENED in Revelation 9:1 because
Christ SHUT IT, and it's FROM THERE that Antichrist will
Revelation 9:11 tells
us unequivocally that Abaddon
or Apollyon is "THE ANGEL OF the abyss" (or "bottomless
It also tells us he
is "king" over the demonic creatures that come out of the
abyss (bottomless pit) when the pit is opened in
therefore, an ANGELIC being, apparently
named in Hebrew AFTER THE PLACE in which he is king.
The abyss is the portion of
Hades located in the lowest parts of sea, where there is a
sudden drop or chasm, and is the abode of demons and some
of the damned (Luke 8:31).
That's where Alexander the
Antichrist presently is, and from where Satan will
bring him out (Revelation 13:1; 11:7; 17:8).
1. The fifth trumpet is
2. A star FALLS from
heaven to earth, and is GIVEN the key to the abyss or

bottomless pit for 1,000 years, and SHUTS THE PIT BACK UP.

taste of his own medicine when he is IMPRISONED in the pit
for A THOUSAND YEARS, just like he kept millions
imprisoned in Sheol until Jesus died, rose, SET THEM FREE,
AND TOOK THEM TO HEAVEN WITH HIM.
The fallen star in
Revelation 9:1 is Satan.
He OPENS the pit to
allow demons to come out on the earth and inflict terrible
pain to the unsaved.
A bit later, he also

THE DEMONS. That's how he got to be their king.
Nor is Apollyon the
Antichrist as some misguided Christians would have us
clearly calls him "THE
ANGEL of the Abyss".
The Antichrist IS
NOT AN ANGEL.
The Antichrist is
A MAN (Revelation 13:18, 17:10; 1 John 2:18).
The Antichrist MUST
be a man, because in order to rule the earth
you gotta be human.
God gave man dominion over
the earth (Genesis 1:26; Psalm 115:16).
God NEVER GAVE such
dominion to an angel.
If angels could rule
the earth then
Satan himself would rule the planet those 3½ years of
tribulation, and he would not NEED TO BRING Antichrist (a
man) out of the pit to reign FOR him:
Abaddon is Abaddon.
Satan is Satan. Antichrist is Antichrist.
They are THREE
DIFFERENT BEINGS, WITH THREE DIFFERENT ROLES in
the coming tribulation.
HOW TO SIN MORE
Focusing on sin is the
ABSOLUTELY CERTAIN way to sin even more.
Focusing on Jesus'
righteousness, on His TOTAL REMOVAL of sin, is
CERTAIN way to sin less and less, until we
I wish I could say
that IT'S ONLY THE CULTS like the Jehovah's Witnesses,
Church of God, Church of Christ, Seventh Day Adventists,
and Mormons that pound

It's not called
"Catholic guilt" for nothing.
And most Evangelicals

JESUS ALREADY REMOVED, FORGOT, and ISN'T EVEN COUNTING? (John
1:29; Hebrews 8:12; 9:26; 2 Corinthians 5:19)

GUILT and CONDEMNATION, INSTEAD OF Grace?
Haven't they read

Which part of "NO
CONDEMNATION NOW" DON'T THESE GUYS GET?
Until Jesus raptures
us and TOTALLY RENEWS our minds, WE WILL ALL SIN from time
we are focused ON HIS RIGHTEOUSNESS, instead of on sin,
then sin will be VERY SPORADIC.
Focus on sin and you
will sin more and more - NOT LESS - plus
Satan will keep you defeated, under constant condemnation
(he's not called THE ACCUSER for nothing) and he'll
wallop you like a gym's punching bag.
I wish I could say
that Christians REALLY

Redemption WHERE HE PAID FOR
EVERY SIN EVER COMMITTED, TOOK AWAY THE SIN OF THE WORLD,
AND GAVE US HIS VERY OWN righteousness (1 John 3:5; 2

In John 14:17 Jesus

"Peace I leave with
PEACE I GIVE UNTO YOU: NOT as the world gives,

Just two days ago, on
Friday, November 13, we saw once again the
bloodthirsty face of evil.
Satan is a spirit
being and, as such, invisible
to natural human eyes.
However, we are
seeing UNPRECEDENTED EVIL from THE ENEMY, who
only comes to "steal, kill and destroy" (John 10:10).
In order to do his
wicked works on earth, Satan must
ALWAYS go through humans.
Why? Because God
gave MAN (masculine and feminine) DOMINION OVER the earth (Genesis

As I write, multiple
terrorist attacks have taken place across Paris, including
at a concert hall and a soccer stadium, with French

those rabid barbarians are still on the loose.

apprehended said "I am from Isis. And this is in
retaliation for Syria".

broke that infamous beheading terrorist Jihadi John had
been killed by a drone strike in Syria, we
can only interpret that bastard's words as meaning that
this was "payback" for taking him out.
I ask EVERYONE -EVERYONE -
to pray FOR France, its leaders, its people, the victims
and their families.

news, I couldn't help but think: "this is A FORETASTE of
things to come".
The reason I'm ASKING

forgotten (I haven't), or if you think it couldn't happen
here, I got two little words for you: "9/11".

of the chilling warning given to President Obama by King
Abdullah of Saudi Arabia on August 30, 2014:
That if we didn't do
anything to contain and defeat these barbarians in Iraq
and Syria, if we NEGLECTED
TO STOP THEM, as we INDEED HAVE --"I
am CERTAIN THAT AFTER A MONTH they will reach Europe and,
AFTER ANOTHER MONTH, America."
It may have taken
them a bit more than a month (actually, little over a
year), but Abdullah's words now seem prophetic and are
coming back to bite us in the rear.
These barbarians are
no longer just targeting landmark buildings (Twin Towers,
Pentagon) but PUBLIC PLACES where people gather to attend
a concert, or watch a sports event.
With Christmas coming
up they could target malls, restaurants, and Lord knows
The time may come
when people won't feel safe ANYWHERE.
Fact is, these
barbaric beasts were keeping
a low profile, blending into the shadows, and JUST
WAITING FOR their terrorist masters in Syria to
give the "go ahead" IN
STRIKE, IN 6 DIFFERENT PLACES ALL AT ONCE, and MURDER
The fact is that VIRTUALLY
ANYONE can get through our southern border, and
we have NO
IDEA WHO has already gotten through.
There already are
terrorist "sleeping cells" right
here in the U.S.
Just like they kept a
low profile in Paris, they are keeping a low profile
So, DON'T DREAM, for
one nanosecond, that we are out of the woods. DO NOT be
lulled into a false sense of security.
Our time left on
earth is short and Satan's time
in heaven is even shorter. And he
is going to get more furious the closer we get to him
being exiled from heaven.
This is a time for
EVERY PERSON OF FAITH to fall on his or her face, EVERY
SINGLE DAY and pray for God's protection for
our countries, our leaders, our fellow citizens, for
Israel and, ABOVE ALL, for
souls to come into the Kingdom.
We need to
cover ALL OF THESE - ON
A DAILY BASIS - with the most precious Blood of our Lord.
We also need to
BIND (PARALYZE) the spirit of TERROR (fear) and FORBID it to
operate in our countries and our lives, in the Name of

His Will, seek
FIRST His Kingdom, and exercise
the spiritual authority we have in Christ.
May His Blood
continually cover each of us, our families and countries.

FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 13,
On the evening of
that FIRST DAY OF THE WEEK (Sunday), WHEN THE DISCIPLES
WERE TOGETHER, with THE DOORS LOCKED FOR FEAR of the Jews,
Jesus came and stood among them and said, "Peace be with
you! (John 20:19)"
Is there such thing
as a "closet" Christian?
Being Christian in
the first, second and third centuries A.D. WASN'T
popular; at least not with
the religious establishment or government authorities.
Belief in Jesus
Christ as God, Messiah and only Redeemer of mankind could
VERY EASILY cost someone their life.
It could mean having
their families killed or sold into slavery.
It could mean having
all their property confiscated.
It could mean being
tortured to death, crucified or torn by wild beasts in
Rome's infamous Coliseum.
Yet the BRAVE,
committed Christians of that era DIDN'T
HESITATE to pay the highest price rather than denounce
their Lord, or their faith.
Sure, there were
Sure, there was a
measure of secrecy because persecution was relentless.
that watershed day of Pentecost in 34 A.D. forward -- when
the Church was Spirit-born -- they DID NOT keep their
faith a secret (Acts 2:1-4,14-38,41).
If they had, the
Christian faith WOULD NOT have spread ALL
OVER THE WORLD, like it did (Acts 17:6).
If they had, the
Christian faith WOULD
NOT have SWALLOWED UP the greatest military machine known
to man PEACEABLY, in just three centuries. Glory to Jesus!
When push came to
BOLD, HEROIC brothers and sisters - empowered by God's
Holy Spirit -- STOOD UP for their Lord and refused to
renounce Him, REGARDLESS of the cost, EVEN
WHEN THEIR OWN LIVES WERE ON THE LINE.
Contrast that with
today's "Christians" -- at least those in the Western
Hemisphere -- who are TOO
COWARDLY to share Jesus with others, for "FEAR" of being
For FEAR of being
For FEAR of being
For FEAR of being
For FEAR of not being
For FEAR of not being
able to answer their critics.
If they spent a
little time communing with Jesus in spirit, studying and
meditating His Word, they WOULD HAVE answers, as the
Scripture says they SHOULD, (1 Peter 3:15).
NO ONE'S THREATENING their
LIVES, mind you.
NO ONE'S PERSECUTING THEM.
But THE VAST
MAJORITY NEVER takes three
minutes of their time to share Jesus with an unbeliever.
All they're good for
is "preaching to the choir".
Let the world GO TO HELL,
we don't need those "secular" TV stations! We now have
You know, where
STUPID Christians supposedly "own" the network.
FOR IT, alright. But you DON'T OWN IT.
If you did, you'd be
living like THE REAL OWNERS LIVE: in multi-millionaire
mansions, wearing Armani and Rolexes, getting more plastic
surgery than Kim Kardashian, driving Bentleys, flying in
private jets, taking extravagant vacations, being sued by
members of your own family, and with
an ever-present entourage, including several bodyguards,
always hanging around.
DISRESPECT Jesus and MOCK Him and the Christian faith, in
worthless movie after worthless piece of trash, we
now make our "own" "Christian" films to PREACH TO THE
Worse yet, we're
TOO CHICKEN-SH*T to preach the Gospel CLEARLY AND OVERTLY
(even to fellow believers!!!) - We now do it COVERTLY
and SUBLIMINALLY (heaven help us, and may God have
mercy on their DECEIVED AND GUTLESS religious souls).
We have so-called
"Christian" entertainers WHO
ARE SO WORLDLY that you can't even TELL THE
DIFFERENCE between them and Lindsey Lohan.
Let the world die and go to
hell, why should I bother to participate in a SECULAR
FORUM, WHICH UNBELIEVERS READ, and where I can SAFELY
and ANONYMOUSLY share my faith?
TV stations, secular
magazines, newspapers and entertaining websites - just to
name a few -- have such
forums, where 95% of readers are UNSAVED.
Dear God, you
could MAKE A FULL TIME MINISTRY of just shining
the Light of Gospel Truth in those!
Forget it! We even have OUR
OWN INTERNET FORUMS where, instead of preaching to THE
LOST WORLD, we
DEVOTE OUR SORRY TIME AND LIVES TO IMPRESSING OTHER
BELIEVING NITWITS WITH OUR PROPHETIC DIVINATION,
"SAGE THEORIES" AND "HOW MUCH" WE THINK we know.
Funny thing: ATHEISTS
have no qualms about sharing their views OPENLY
with everyone. They DON'T
CARE if it's "unpopular".
ABORTION ADVOCATES have no
problems expressing their views PROUDLY and
SATANISTS and OCCULTISTS have
EVEN NEWS ANCHORS, who
are constantly in the public eye, and risk some degree of
public backlash, have
NO PROBLEMS openly stating their sexual orientation.
"Christians" are TOO TIMID to share Jesus.
TOO SCARED to "COME OUT OF THE CLOSET" and PROUDLY AND
OPENLY share Christ.
SUCH THING AS "a closet Christian".

If you're anything
like me in that regard, I have THE

SONS OF GOD
many as received Him, to them gave He power to become THE
SONS OF God, even to them that believe on His
Name: WHICH WERE BORN, not
of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of
man, BUT OF GOD" (John 1:12-13; 1 Peter 1:23).
ARE WE THE SONS OF God, and it does not yet
appear what we shall be: but WE KNOW THAT, WHEN
HE SHALL APPEAR, WE SHALL BE LIKE HIM; for we
shall see Him as He is" (1 John 3:2),
"For as many as
are led by the Spirit of God, THEY ARE THE SONS OF God.
For you have not received the spirit of bondage again to
fear; but you have received the Spirit of adoption, by
which we cry, Abba, Father.
The Spirit himself
bears witness with our spirit, THAT
WE ARE THE SONS OF God:
SONS, then HEIRS; heirs of God, and JOINT-HEIRS WITH
Christ; if so be that we suffer with Him, so that
we may be also glorified together.
For I reckon that the
sufferings of this present time are
not worthy to be compared WITH THE GLORY WHICH SHALL BE
REVEALED IN US.
CREATION WAITS FOR THE MANIFESTATION OF THE SONS of God.
CREATION ITSELF ALSO SHALL BE DELIVERED FROM THE BONDAGE
OF CORRUPTION into
the glorious liberty OF THE SONS OF God" (Romans
"And we know that
all things work together for good to them that love God,

THE IMAGE OF His Son, that He might be THE FIRSTBORN AMONG
many brethren (Romans 8:28-29).
In John 3:16 Jesus is
"ONLY BEGOTTEN SON" of God.
That was before
Calvary and the Resurrection.
God KNEW IN ADVANCE who are,
and would be, His sons, having chosen us and
predestined us in Christ Jesus BEFORE THE FOUNDATION of
the world (Ephesians 1:4).
All of God's sons, beginning
with Adam, had fallen into sin, EXCEPT JESUS.
Therefore, of all the
sons of God, Jesus was
THE ONLY ONE LEFT.
Jesus came to redeem
(buy back) God's
OTHER sons who had fallen into sin. Praise His

Romans 8:29, as we read above, Jesus
is NO LONGER CALLED "the only begotten son" of God but

The past 2,000 years of
human history have been all about Jesus, the Incorruptible
Seed of God (1 John 3:9), the Seed OF THE WOMAN
(Genesis 3:15), and Seed of Abraham (Galatians 3:16), multiplying
into millions and even billions of seeds:
"Verily, verily, I
say unto you, Except a grain (seed) of wheat falls into
the ground and dies, it abides alone: but
IF IT DIES, IT BRINGS FORTH MUCH FRUIT" (John

buried, go into hell itself in the center of the earth for
three days and nights and, from
hell itself, SPRING FORTH RESURRECTED, having
defeated Satan, demons, principalities and powers of
darkness, taken the keys of
Death and Hell itself, and ascended to the Father's
Throne (1 Corinthians 15:37-38; 1 John 3:9, 5:1, 4,
Our Jesus did all that so
that the second born, the third born, the fourth born and
the one trillionth born sons could also ascend to the
Father's Throne WHERE THEY WERE, as spirit beings, before
the foundation of the earth.
Paul weaves this
marvelous Truth throughout his epistles, calling it the
Mystery of Christ (Romans 11:25; 1 Corinthians 2:1;
15:50; Ephesians 1:9, 3:4,9, 5:32; Colossians 1:27):
The First Son MANIFESTED in

God will always be
INFINITELY greater than the sum of all His "parts" (us).

who KNOW HIM, whom He foreknew (KNEW in advance), chose
and predestined in Himself before creating the earth, are
destined to MANIFEST His fullness:
The measure of the stature
of the FULLNESS OF Christ (Ephesians 4:13).
That's why Paul says
that the sufferings we experience in this TEMPORARY
sub-realm of "time", which is about to expire, ARE
NOT WORTHY to be compared WITH OUR BRILLIANT AND GLORIOUS
DESTINY who is Christ Himself (Ephesians 3:19;

God for His Faithfulness! Come Lord Jesus!
TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 10,
A few days ago, as
Israeli archaeologists dug around a Jerusalem parking lot,
they found the remains of the infamous Citadel (Acra),
used by Greeks under Antiochus Epiphanes to both control
and terrify the Jews from 168-164 B.C.
They uncovered the
base of the tower, a massive wall over 20 meters (65 feet)
in height and 4 meters (12 feet) wide.
Also found were
numerous sling stones and bronze arrowheads, as well as
coins minted during Antiochus Epiphanes' reign.
The Citadel was a fortress
with a high tower (we now know 65 feet tall) from which
Antiochus' armed henchmen could watch EVERYTHING that was
going on in Jerusalem, and squash any attempt to break
free from his evil rule.
The Citadel is
mentioned in 1 and 2 Maccabees and by historian Flavius
Josephus Antiquities of the Jews 12:133-138, 248;
This finding is
significant for two main reasons:
1. It vindicates
Josephus and proves, once again, just what
accurate, reliable, invaluable historical source he is:
The citadel WAS
RIGHT WHERE HE SAID it was:
"when he (Antiochus)
had overthrown the city walls, he (Antiochus) BUILT
A CITADEL IN
THE LOWER PART OF THE CITY, for THE PLACE WAS HIGH, AND
OVERLOOKED THE TEMPLE; on which account he
fortified it with high walls and towers, and put into it a
garrison of Macedonians.
... And when the
king HAD BUILT AN IDOL ALTAR UPON God's altar, he slew
swine upon it, and so offered a sacrifice neither
according to the law, nor the Jewish religious worship in
that country. HE ALSO
COMPELLED THEM TO FORSAKE THE WORSHIP which they paid
their own God, and TO ADORE THOSE WHOM HE TOOK TO BE GODS..."
2. This find PROVIDES
FURTHER EVIDENCE of where the ancient temples were located:
They WEREN'T located
on the falsely called "temple mount".
They stood "in
THE LOWER PART OF the city", SOUTH of the "temple mount"
in the area named Ophel, with the Gihon spring gushing
within the temple structure.
Question: if the
citadel was built "on the LOWER
part of" Jerusalem, as Josephus tells us (see
above), AND AS ARCHAEOLOGY HAS JUST CONFIRMED, and it "OVERLOOKED
HOW ON EARTH could it
the temple, if the temple was atop the "temple
mount" which is THE
HIGHEST part of Mount Moriah?
It could have ONLY
OVERLOOKED the temple, if the temple stood LOWER
than the tower and NEAR the tower, also on the LOWER
part of the city as Josephus says.
1 Maccabees 14:36
"...the men in the
city of David in Jerusalem, who HAD
BUILT THEMSELVES A CITADEL from which they used to rush
forth AND DEFILE THE ENVIRONS OF THE TEMPLE and do great
damage to its purity".
The moment I heard
the news, I read several articles, but their description
of the location was vague.
archaeologist commented that they could "cut off access to
the temple mount FROM THE SOUTH".
I don't think they've
thought this through:
WHY would the Seleucids
be so concerned about cutting off access FROM THE SOUTH, when
most of the Jewish population lived TO THE WEST?
KNOWING - FROM
SCRIPTURE - that the temple stood at Ophel, and KNOWING -
also from Scripture - that the Jewish population was
concentrated mainly in the Jewish Quarter, WHERE
would I have built the citadel in order to have FULL
CONTROL of the goings on in the temple, observe
all activities in the city, AND CONTROL ACCESS TO THE
I picked a strategic
spot but thought that couldn't be it, because it was too
close to the city walls, and all the articles said it was
located in Silwan, an Arab neighborhood located in the
southern part of the "City of David" (Ir David).
Finally I found a
couple articles that named
the parking lot.
And guess what... THE
CITADEL WAS LOCATED AT
THE VERY SPOT I had picked.
Actually, those Greek
bastards could NOT ONLY SEE
EVERYTHING that went on in the temple, including the
statue of Antiochus (Abomination of Desolation) they had
erected, but they COULD
CONTROL ACCESS TO THE TEMPLE FROM EVERY DIRECTION: north,
west AND SOUTH, (direct access from the east
being naturally hindered by the Kidron Valley).
Josephus tells us
that the temple was located on
Jerusalem's eastern hill (lower city), which is crescent
The citadel, it turns
out, sat JUST WEST of the
temple ALSO on the crescent shaped hill (Ophel), EXACTLY
AS Josephus describes (between the temple and the
Can it be mere
coincidence that they have found the Acra at this
Don't think so.
Jews are SO IN DENIAL
about their overwhelming defeat and total destruction of
their temple - first by the Babylonians and then by the
Romans - THAT THEY HAVE
IGNORED the testimony of THEIR OWN SCRIPTURES concerning
the location of the temples.
ALSO IGNORED (in violation of their own Torah) the
HISTORICAL testimony OF SEVERAL IMPARTIAL EYEWITNESSES like
Josephus, Tacitus, Aristeas, and Hecateus of Abdera, who
wrote in the time of Alexander the Great (Deuteronomy
Before the Church
leaves, Israeli archaeologists will find SOMETHING that
will FOREVER PROVE - WITHOUT THE SLIGHTEST DOUBT - the
true location of the first and second temples.
Why? Because they
begin to build the THIRD temple - the one that Antichrist
will desecrate - right after
the tribulation begins (Revelation 11:1-2).
And they won't
topple the Dome of the Rock and build the temple at
God gets to do the honors
and topple the Dome Himself, near the end of
the tribulation (Revelation 11:13).
That means, that they
will build the third temple on
its TRUE location.
This find may just be
the tip of the iceberg.
MONDAY, NOVEMBER 9,
The Book of
Revelation gives the most comprehensive account of the
Surely, if the
Rapture takes place AT THE END of the tribulation, as
diminutive Jim Bakker and other religious liars propose, it
must be depicted SOMEWHERE in that marvelous Book conveyed
by Jesus, through His Angel, to the Apostle John
Surely Jesus KNEW how
desperate His Church would be in the end times to see His
Face and be translated into the heavenly realm.
Surely if the
catching up of believers takes place AT THE END of the
tribulation, JESUS WOULD HAVE GIVEN CLEAR INDICATION, so
that His followers would KNOW FOR SURE they had something
to which to look forward AFTER the unspeakable sufferings
of the horrific tribulation.
But Jesus DID NOT
give such indication.
Post tribbers are
faced with one tiny problem:
There is NO
MENTION WHATSOEVER OF ANY believer being CAUGHT UP to
Jesus AT THE END of the tribulation.
ZERO. ZIP. NONE.
Matter of fact, we
know from both 1 Corinthians 15:50-55 and 1 Thessalonians
4:14-17 that, at the Rapture, there's
A RESURRECTION of "the dead in Christ" after which
they are CAUGHT UP TOGETHER
WITH LIVING believers.
The ONLY resurrection
OF BELIEVERS that we find at the END of the tribulation is
in Revelation 20:4.
That verse clearly
states this resurrection is
ONLY for those who were martyred for their faith in Christ
during the 3½-year tribulation.
There is NO
MENTION WHATSOEVER of them being joined to LIVING
There is NO
MENTION WHATSOEVER of them - or ANYONE ELSE - being
Moreover, since this
resurrection is ONLY for tribulation martyrs, if it were
the Rapture, that would mean THAT
JESUS LIED, AND ALL THE PREVIOUS "DEAD IN CHRIST" WERE
NEITHER RESURRECTED NOR CAUGHT UP, as His Word promises.
Well, wait a minute,
maybe the post tribulation Rapture is not shown in
Revelation... but surely, it must be clearly shown in some
other eschatological book...
all he devotes THREE
WHOLE CHAPTERS (12,13,14) TO the Second Coming
Well, then, perhaps
in one of the Epistles?
The Book of Acts?
Well, then, IT'S
GOTTA BE in the Gospels!!!
The Gospels give the
signs that WILL TAKE PLACE IMMEDIATELY
WITH (eutheos meta) the tribulation
(Matthew 24:29; Luke 21:25) .
And they ALL SHOW
that Jesus appears IN THE CLOUDS - NOT ON EARTH - and
COLLECTS His chosen - AT THE START OF THE TRIBULATION,
right after those signs begin (Matthew 24:30-31; Luke
Moreover, at Christ's
Second Coming, when He RETURNS TO EARTH, He
is accompanied by ALL HIS
SAINTS (Zechariah 14:5; Jude 1:14-15; Revelation 8:3;
That means that ALL HIS
SAINTS (dead and living), must have LEFT THE EARTH and
been CAUGHT UP TO HEAVEN PRIOR
TO His Second Coming.
Indeed, they have.
Revelation 6:9-11 shows
the dead in Christ PRIOR TO THEIR RESURRECTION and
Revelation 6:12-16 gives
us the same signs given in the synoptic Gospels that
indicate the BEGINNING OF the tribulation.
And Revelation 7:9
SAINTS RESURRECTED, STANDING in front of God's Throne IN
HEAVEN (caught up to heaven), in glorified bodies, ALONG
WITH THE LIVING IN CHRIST WHO WERE ALSO CAUGHT UP.
They comprise "a
great multitude" of believers that "NO ONE CAN NUMBER".
They ALL washed their
robes and "made
them white IN THE BLOOD OF THE LAMB" (Revelation
And WHEN is
this great multitude of the dead in Christ plus the living
in Christ caught up?
Right after the signs
that indicate the tribulation is starting, BEFORE
THE TRIBULATION JUDGMENTS (7TH SEAL) HAVE EVEN BEGUN.
Glory to Jesus!
Poor post tribbers:
they haven't got a scriptural leg on which to stand.
SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 8,
OLD DOG, NEW TRICKS
You'd think that
after a man has been CONVICTED OF A CRIME, and SERVED 5
YEARS IN FEDERAL PRISON, he
would have learned a thing or two, repented, and perhaps
mended his ways.
Especially when he CLAIMS
TO BE a "man of God".
Clearly, that HASN'T
BEEN the case with minuscule scam artist Jim Bakker.
In 1989 Bakker was
tried and FOUND
GUILTY BY A JURY on 24 COUNTS OF MAIL FRAUD, WIRE FRAUD
Observer discovered that he kept "two sets of books" and
had personally pocketed MOST of the donations earmarked
for his "Christian village", Heritage U.S.A.
He was sentenced
to 45 YEARS in federal prison.
He was granted parole
5 years later.
Jim was also
involved in a huge scandal -
FOR WHICH HE NEVER UNDERWENT TRIAL: he and fellow "man
of gaaaaawd" John Wesley Fletcher drugged and raped former
church secretary Jessica Hahn.
The reason he was
never charged or prosecuted for that crime is
that he paid Hahn OVER A QUARTER OF A MILLION DOLLARS in
hush money - all from your generous, sacrificial "love
gifts" - thank you very much.
After his release,
Jim wrote a book entitled I
Was Wrong, in which he renounced the
"prosperity gospel", WHICH HE HAD USED TO SWINDLE MILLIONS
OF DOLLARS (as much as A MILLION PER WEEK) out of millions
of stupid "Christian" groupies.
20 years later, Jim's at it
The old dog has come
up with NEW TRICKS:
He claims that, while
in prison, he searched the Bible for evidence of a
pre-trib Rapture, and couldn't find any.
Therefore, since JIM
CLAIMS that HE "couldn't
find any" evidence, EVERYONE
ELSE is supposed to believe his lack of "finding".
NEVER MIND those of

Jim has also
admitted that he read the
whole Bible -FOR THE FIRST TIME IN HIS LIFE - when he
went to prison.
That proves that Jim
UNQUALIFIED TO PREACH, and SHOULDN'T
HAVE BEEN IN MINISTRY TO BEGIN WITH.
And yet, he
raised more money from Bible illiterate "Christians", than
CBN and TBN COMBINED.
Based on his dubious
"scholarship" OF HAVING READ
THE BIBLE ONCE -- in his whole life...
And that he finally
read it IN PRISON when
he HAD "NOTHING BETTER" TO
And on an
alleged "prophetic dream from god" (spelled with a
lower case "g" on purpose), Jim
is now in THE FEAR PEDDLING BUSINESS:
He teaches that the
Church WILL GO THROUGH the "7-year tribulation".
Never mind that
there's NO 7-YEAR TRIBULATION in the ENTIRE Bible.
Jim is SELLING
tribulation food, tribulation "survival kits",
and other tribulation paraphernalia... ALL AT
OVER-INFLATED PRICES, OF COURSE, to... you guessed it, stupid,
star-struck, "Christian" groupies.
The cheapest item
costs $800.00 and most items range in price from $2,500 -
$3,500 and up.
He is also SELLING
"dome homes" (which can, supposedly, withstand fire) and soliciting
$1,000.00 donations for some mountaintop prayer center.
For the TOTAL IDIOTS who'd
even contemplate acquiescing, allow me to jog your
memory with a friendly, two-word reminder: "Heritage USA".
Jim is also selling
COSTUME JEWELRY and a baseball cap with a cross, which he
wears on camera to cover his bald head.
Why ANYONE would
want cubic zirconia DURING
THE TRIBULATION beats the hell out of me...
Let alone wearing that
baseball cap WITH A CROSS...
mongoloids who still worship Bakker want to give
Antichrist CLEAR EVIDENCE to chop off their stupid heads.
Or, who knows, maybe
Jim WILL SELL THEM a titanium helmet guaranteed to protect
from decapitation later on.

1:7; 1 John 4:18).
Since the spirit of
fear COMES FROM SATAN, Jim
Bakker SERVES SATAN, all the while masquerading as
"minister of Christ" * (Matthew
7:15; 2 Corinthians 11:13-14).
But let's give credit
where credit is due:
Jim WASN'T scouring
the Bible for proof of the pre-trib Rapture.
If he had been, he
WOULD HAVE FOUND IT.
What he was doing
during those 5 years in prison was PLANNING
HIS COMEBACK and INVENTING HIS NEXT SCAM.
And, this time, he
came up with an ingenious, fool-proof scheme:
Fill the minds and
hearts of religious morons WITH FEAR about the
tribulation, AND MANIPULATE
THEM into parting with their money.
Since the tribulation
is a "future" event, they
CAN'T PROVE FRAUD, because it hasn't happened yet.
And when it DOES
HAPPEN, Christians - WHO
WASTED ALL THAT MONEY on "tribulation stuff" they DON'T
NEED - so that Jim could maintain his lifestyle of LUXURY -
will be gone.
It'll be TOO
LATE FOR THEM TO PRESS CHARGES or for anyone to prosecute.
Look, it's none of my
business what anyone does with their own money.
But, really... The

In justifying his
MISUSE of mass media, Bakker once said: "I believe that IF
JESUS WERE ALIVE TODAY,he
would be on TV".
He is NOT on TV, He
is NOT fleecing His sheep, He's not scaring anyone, He's
NOT SELLING ANYTHING, and you
NO MORE HEARD FROM Jesus than I heard from Elvis!
* I said he SERVES Satan,
I DIDN'T say he is UNSAVED: whether he is or not, God
only knows. I hope, for his own sake, that he is
born-again). And yes, there are A
LOT OF Christians who SERVE Satan, whether they know
it or not.
SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 7,
There aren't very
many Christians, or for that matter, many Christian ministers,
that I look up to.
Billy Graham is
one of the few that I hold in high regard and deep
For one thing, Billy
was instrumental in my salvation. I came to know Jesus
as my savior, in large part, because of his ministry.
That, alone, makes
me eternally indebted, and
eternally grateful to him.
Of course, that was
over 30 years ago. At that time, I was a baby in Christ.
Little did I know
that Jesus would eventually call me into the ministry.
Needless to say, my
spiritual relationship with Jesus has greatly deepened,
and grown by leaps and bounds since then: to Christ be all
One thing I've always
appreciated about Billy is his
CLEAR, SIMPLE, NO-NONSENSE APPROACH to the Gospel.

heart to Jesus, that I could

Although Jesus and
His Holy Spirit have called me to a rather unconventional
ministry, I've never
forgotten Billy's admonition to ALWAYS preach the cross,
since it's the message of the cross that draws more people
to Jesus than any other.
Same goes for
INVITING OTHERS to receive Christ.
Billy is a true
leader, who's always led by
example, not manipulation.
Despite being one of the
most admired and influential men in America and the
world, personal friend to every U.S. President from
Kennedy to Bush, Billy remained down-to-earth, lived a
modest life, and never used his ministry, or considerable
influence, for personal gain.
He was never involved
in any sort of scandal, and
never prostituted the Gospel for money, as have so many
pimps and pimpettes prancing around our TV screens.
Since Billy turns 97 years
young today, I think it proper to publicly honor this
giant of the Christian faith, who's blessed so many,
including your humble servant.
I praise Jesus for Billy.
And I love and THANK Billy for helping me find Jesus.
THANK YOU, Billy
And A VERY HAPPY

I've no problem with
anyone seeing Rapture movies.
If you're looking FOR

However, if you're
TRUTH, you won't find it in Rapture movies - I
don't care how much they're promoted on Kristian TV -
that should be a tip off right there - or
which "Christian" author wrote the book on which the movie
claims to be based.
What all Rapture
movies and Rapture books have in common is they're
SHORT ON TRUTH:
They say the Rapture
can take place at any time, suddenly, out of the blue,
when no one suspects it, WITHOUT WARNING, when
Jesus told us in the first century A.D. some VERY SPECIFIC
SIGNS that would indicate the beginning of the tribulation (Matthew
24:29; Revelation 6:12).
They say the
Antichrist is some obscure character, living incognito in
Europe or the Middle East, who appears out of nowhere and
rises to power overnight, when
SCRIPTURE has told us for 2,000 YEARS that he won't come
from the earth, but arises FROM THE ABYSS (Revelation
When GOD has told us for
two millenniums that this character IS SOMEONE VERY FAMOUS
who ALREADY LIVED in the distant past and that people will
be astonished to see him alive again (Revelation
They say the world
will be ruled by this mysterious individual, about whose
identity NONE OF THEM has any clue, when
Daniel chapters 7 and 11 and Revelation 13:2 and 18 have
told us his identity for 2,500 years.
the end times by ASSUMING that, except for some of the
laws this evil man will impose, like the taking of his
mark, the world will go on
pretty much as usual.
This when GOD
has been telling us for almost 3,000 years that the
tribulation world will be NOTHING like the world we know
today (Isaiah, chapter 24, Revelation chapters 8-9).
claiming to have "studied Bible prophecy" for 50 or 60
years and to be "experts" on the subject.
guys think that God gave the Apostle John the 8th and 9th
chapters of Revelation just to keep him from dying of
boredom at Patmos:
ONE of their books, and NOT ONE of their movies, TELLS THE
TRUTH about what will happen VERY, VERY, VERY soon to this
MOMENT the Church is gone:
earth will wobble and tilt on its axis (Isaiah 24:1,
2. Geography and
topography will be
drastically altered (Revelation 6:14).
third of the land's surface - and whoever/whatever is on
it - will be instantly burned to a crisp (Revelation
systems will tumble and crumble (Revelation 13:16-18).
of the water will be poisoned and kill those who drink
it, and eventually there
will be NO WATER AT ALL to drink (Revelation 8:10-11;
will be drastically shortened (Revelation 8:12).
oceans will turn to blood: all sea creatures will
eventually die (Revelation 8:8-9; 16:3).
third of trees and flora, and all the grass will be
destroyed (Revelation 8:7)
of demons will emerge from the abyss and sting people for
5 months (Revelation 9:1-11).
THIRD OF REMAINING MANKIND (by my estimation close to 2
BILLION PEOPLE) will die (Revelation 9:15, 18).
11. Satan and
his angels will be cast down to the earth and will be
RIGHT HERE ON EARTH for the 3½ year tribulation wreaking
all sorts of havoc (Revelation 12:9-12).
To put it mildly: It
seems these self-styled "experts" have
overlooked a few tiny details.
Check them out for
yourselves. They've been in
your Bibles for the past 2,800 years.
I can now state
categorically, BASED ON SCRIPTURE, that the judgments
mentioned in these two chapters will
happen within 5 days - repeat, WITHIN 5 DAYS, after the
Church is removed.
And the world that
will be left for Antichrist to rule over will
not resemble the world we know today IN THE
So, if you like
Rapture movies for
entertainment, go see them, enjoy the popcorn, and
have a good time.
But if you want
prophetic Truth, you better go to the Books of Isaiah,
Joel, Zechariah, Daniel and Revelation, and
STUDY THEM for yourself, time and again, from beginning to

get the Truth from BOOK SELLERS or from Kristian
entertainers, and you sure
as hell won't get it from Hollywood.
THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 5,
DON'T BE A HERO
I've heard in recent
days from several guys who "feel" that they are to preach
the Gospel DURING THE
TRIBULATION to those WHO
MISS the Rapture.
At first glance,
their plan SEEMS good and praiseworthy, and I'm
sure they mean well.
But despite their
good intentions, they are
If these men are
saved, as they claim to be, they
themselves will be raptured, and WON'T BE AROUND to
"teach" or "preach" anything to anyone who's MISSED the
speech will be a thing of the past:
PERSECUTION and DEVASTATING CONDITIONS during the

is WAY AHEAD of them...
God WANTS TO save EVERYONE (1
When the tribulation
STARTS, He gives UNSAVED
PEOPLE 10 DAYS to turn to Christ and be included in the
great multitude that is caught up to meet Him in the
air (Revelation 2:10, 7:9).
Even AFTER the
Rapture God has made SUPERNATURAL
provision FOR ANYONE WHO WANTS TO know the
Truth (Jesus) and be saved during the tribulation:
1. He will have the
Two Witnesses prophesying 1,260 days.
2. He will have 144,000
sealed Israelites instructing
3. And God will even
(for the first time in history) send
AN ANGEL flying thru mid-heaven to preach the Eternal
Gospel to ALL the people on earth - and IN EVERY LANGUAGE (Revelation
THE MAIN REASON He
sends that angel to preach the Gospel is
because the angel CAN'T BE REACHED, PERSECUTED, OR KILLED
ONLY REASON that the Two Witnesses and 144,000
Israelites will be able to prophesy and instruct during
the tribulation is because they
will be SUPERNATURALLY
PROTECTED during their respective ministerial
assignments (Revelation 9:4; 11:3-6; 14:1-4)
So, WHY would
anyone WAIT UNTIL THE TRIBULATION to share Jesus with
MISS the Rapture?
Wouldn't it be WAY
BETTER to share the Gospel NOW - BEFORE the
Wouldn't it be BETTER if
those people to whom they plan to preach got
saved NOW and wouldn't "miss" anything?
Not only DON'T these
would-be "tribulation preachers" know whether
they'll be around during the tribulation. They DON'T
KNOW if they'll be around TOMORROW.
There's no such thing
as "future preaching" or "future salvation" in the Bible.
If you KNOW Christ NOW, then
NOW is when you're supposed to be sharing Him
When God calls
someone to preach, He
calls them to do it NOW.
someone receives Christ into his/her heart and is saved, they
MUST DO SO "NOW".
NOW (today) is
THE DAY of Salvation.
As far as God is
is the ONLY "accepted time" (2 Corinthians
Therefore, while we
appreciate these individuals' GOOD INTENTION, my advice to
DON'T BE A HERO.
Don't "hide" your
God-given "talent" or "calling" UNTIL THE TRIBULATION.
If you want to share
Jesus with others, DO
IT TODAY, DO IT NOW.
If you DON'T do it
now, when it's allowed and no one persecutes you, WHAT
CHANCE IS THERE that you'll do it WHEN SOMEONE THREATENS
TO CUT OFF YOUR HEAD?
I mean, really...
(and I say this lovingly) it's time for some people to
GROW UP, be
REALISTIC, and STOP
LIVING in prophetic La-La Land.
DON'T WAIT until the
tribulation to share Christ.
If, indeed, He has
called you to preach, DO
It always amuses me
how religious morons find time to nitpick and HINDER those
who are doing something for the Kingdom of God:
They DON'T find time to
share Christ with anyone.
They DON'T bring ANYONE
They DON'T care if
the whole world goes to hell.
They DON'T help
anyone, or serve anyone in
But they DO
make it their life's mission TO GRUMBLE ABOUT THE
"SINNER'S PRAYER" posted on this website.
They say that "it's
NOT FOUND IN the Bible" and that "it doesn't save anyone".
They are RIGHT - on
That prayer is
NOT found in the Bible.
That prayer, in and
of itself, DOES NOT SAVE
HAVE NEVER SAID that it does.
ONLY if the
FROM THE HEART, and ONLY if
the person doing the praying REALLY
MEANS IT, will it save them.
And, even then, it's
NOT the prayer itself that saves: JESUS IS THE ONE WHO
DOES THE SAVING (Acts 4:11-12).
However, in order to
SAVE SOMEONE Jesus
MUST BE RECEIVED (invited) into a person's heart.
John 1:12 says very
ALL WHO RECEIVED HIM to them gave He power to
become the sons of God".
My question is: HOW does
one RECEIVE JESUS?
Unless we want to
accuse our precious Lord of
being A SPIRITUAL RAPIST, WHO FORCES HIS WAY INTO OUR
HEARTS WITHOUT BEING INVITED, then Jesus
MUST BE invited and RECEIVED into our hearts.
I don't know about
you, but EVERY SINGLE TIME I've been invited somewhere,
WORDS HAVE BEEN INVOLVED.
I was either invited
through SPOKEN WORDS, through WRITTEN WORDS, or a
combination of both, but
WORDS and COMMUNICATION BETWEEN THE TWO PARTIES WERE
ALWAYS - without exception - involved in the inviting.
HOW do these
idiots propose that one INVITE (RECEIVE) Jesus into one's
said "EVERYONE WHO CONFESSES
Me before men, I will also confess him before My
Father who is in heaven" (Matthew 10:32).
Paul said "if you believe
in your heart AND CONFESS WITH YOUR MOUTH the Lord Jesus
Christ, YOU WILL BE SAVED: for WITH THE HEART
man believes unto righteousness, and WITH
THE MOUTH CONFESSION IS MADE unto Salvation"
There's NO SUCH THING
AS "confession" WITHOUT words.
So, while the
sinner's prayer may not appear in the Bible VERBATIM, praying
it is VERY MUCH IN LINE WITH the Bible.
"sinner's prayer" -- in its multiple variations -- serves
simply AS A GUIDE for those who want to OPEN
THEIR HEARTS, receive Christ, and INVITE HIM to enter
their innermost beings.
There is NO MAGICAL
POWER in that prayer, or its words.
And if it's NOT
PRAYED FROM THE HEART - if the person doing the praying,
DOESN'T REALLY MEAN IT - he/she could pray it A MILLION
TIMES, and will be JUST AS
LOST as he/she was BEFORE he/she prayed it.
That is why our
website instructs those who want to receive Christ to "Say
this and MEAN
IT, WITH ALL YOUR HEART".
I can say FROM
PERSONAL EXPERIENCE that the sinner's prayer was OF
INVALUABLE HELP to me many years ago when I first gave
my heart to Jesus.
I came from A VERY
TRADITIONAL and VERY RELIGIOUS background, where the idea
of receiving or inviting Jesus into one's heart WAS
It simply wasn't
taught or EVEN MENTIONED.
I wanted Jesus, but had
NO IDEA how to go about receiving Him.
I'm SO THANKFUL that
I heard three Baptist preachers: Theodore Epp, Oliver
Greene and Billy Graham lead
people in various "versions" of that prayer, where I
finally KNEW WHAT TO DO, got on my knees, prayed MY OWN
VERSION, and GOT SAVED.
Glory to Jesus... I
haven't been the same person since.
naysayers have reached me too late.
And that is WHY I
offer NOT ONE, BUT SEVERAL "sample" sinner's prayers - and
WILL CONTINUE TO OFFER them - WHETHER ANYONE ELSE LIKES IT
However, I would be
remiss if I didn't make one final point:
WHERE does the Bible say that
we can ONLY PRAY prayers FOUND IN the Bible?
If we can ONLY pray
prayers FOUND IN the Bible, then we'd be EXTREMELY LIMITED
in what we CAN pray.
That means if you
can't pay the mortgage, you CAN'T PRAY that God will
provide the money you need, because
SUCH PRAYER IS NOT FOUND IN the Bible.
Likewise, if you're
unemployed, YOU CAN'T PRAY to get that JOB you really want
and need... matter of fact, you
CAN'T PRAY FOR A JOB, PERIOD -- because there's NO SUCH
PRAYER FOUND IN THE BIBLE.
Therefore, those who
use the "not found in the Bible" excuse to justify their
stupidity are nothing but
They DON'T CARE about
Jesus or the Bible.
They DON'T CARE about
They are SATAN'S
PAWNS TRYING TO OBSTRUCT God's ministry.
And God better NOT
CATCH THEM praying a prayer NOT found in
Scripture, because THEY WILL BE JUDGED WITH THE SAME
MEASURE with which they judge others (Matthew 7:1).
Our teaching has
always been that we should NOT pray for ANYTHING that
CONTRADICTS God's Word or that opposes His expressed Will.
The sinner's prayer,
as I demonstrate above, IS
VERY MUCH IN LINE WITH Scripture and DOES NOT oppose or
contradict God's Word IN
ANY way, shape or
Saying that we can
ONLY PRAY PRAYERS FOUND in Scripture is UTTERLY
It's also UNBIBLICAL.
Jesus Himself said "ask
and YOU SHALL RECEIVE" (Luke 11:9).
He set NO
RESTRICTIONS as to what we may ask.
Again in John
YOU SHALL ASK in my name, will I do, that the Father
may be glorified in the Son. IF
YOU ASK ME
ANYTHING in My name, I
WILL DO IT"
Surely, "if you ASK
ME ANYTHING, I WILL DO IT" must
INCLUDE the MOST IMPORTANT THING WE CAN ASK FOR:
Jesus says it again
in Matthew 21:22:
THINGS WHATSOEVER you ask in prayer,
believing, YOU SHALL RECEIVE"
Last time I checked
"ALL THINGS WHATSOEVER" MEANS that
you can ask for ANYTHING... whether there's a specific
prayer for it in the Bible or not.
Provided of course
THAT IT'S NOT CONTRARY TO the Will of God as expressed in
His written Word.
Since SALVATION is THE
MOST IMPORTANT thing for any human, and SINCE IT'S WHAT
THE BIBLE IS ALL ABOUT, I have to assume that
"WHATSOEVER we ask" MUST
INCLUDE ASKING Jesus to SAVE US by entering our hearts.

So much for that
I vividly remember
THE VERY FIRST TIME I HEARD such "objection" to the
sinner's prayer, many years ago, as
I was contemplating inviting Jesus into my own heart:
He said "you SHOULDN'T
DO THAT: these people DO
NOT BELONG TO YOUR RELIGION".
Praise God for His
Most Holy Spirit who then said:

But EVERY MAN IN
HIS OWN ORDER: Christ the first fruits; afterward they
that are Christ's at his coming.
Then comes the end,
when he shall have delivered up the kingdom to God, even

For HE MUST REIGN
UNTIL HE HAS PUT ALL ENEMIES UNDER HIS FEET.
THE LAST ENEMY THAT SHALL BE
DESTROYED IS DEATH." (1 Corinthians 15:22-26)
There are various
resurrections in the Bible, as well as various
INDIVIDUAL RESURRECTIONS in
the Bible are:
1. The widow's son at
Zarephath that Elisha raised from the dead (1 Kings
2. The son of the
Shunnamite woman raised by Elisha (2 Kings 4:35).
3. The man who came
back to life after his corpse came in contact with
Elisha's bones (2 Kings 13:21).
4. Jesus raised
Jairus' daughter (Matthew 9:25; Mark 5:42; Luke 8:55).

widow's son at Naim (Luke 7:13-15).
6. Lazarus (John

life by Paul (Acts 20:9-12).
10. Alexander the
Great, the Antichrist (Revelation 11:7; 17:8).
11. Judas Iscariot
GROUP RESURRECTIONS are:
1. The Old Testament
saints who rose from the dead and ascended to heaven with
Jesus (Matthew 27:52-53).
2. The "dead in
Christ", who RISE and join the "living in Christ" at the
Rapture (1 Thessalonians 4:15-17).
3. The Two Witnesses
MARTYRS who turn to Christ DURING the tribulation and die
for their faith ARE RAISED FROM THE DEAD AT
THE START OF the Millennium (Revelation 20:4).
ELSE gets raised at the
END OF the Millennium (Revelation 20:11-15).
EVERYONE involved in
these resurrections is saved, EXCEPT Individuals 10 & 11
and Group 5.
The Antichrist and
false prophet (individual resurrections 10 &11) get tossed
ALIVE into the ETERNAL lake of fire (Revelation 19:20).
Those in Group 5 are
presently in hell.
They have UNTIL THE
END OF the Millennium to repent and put their trust in
Jesus (Revelation 20:11-15).
Those who do, are
written in the Book of Life, and get to populate THE NEW
EARTH (Revelation 21:1-8).
Those who DON'T, are

fire (Revelation 20:15).

THE END TIMES?
I have dealt with the
7th Day Adventist cult for many years, and have trounced
their brainwashed puppets many, many times, and totally
destroyed their stupid arguments:
1. They DO
NOT believe in the pre-trib Rapture.
They ONLY believe in
the Second Coming (Advent) of Christ, hence the name

the Pope is the Antichrist.
I'm not exactly a fan
of socialist Pope Francis, but the Antichrist he's

NOT this man's symbol (mark), his name, or the number of
his name, etched on a person's right hand or forehead, AS

worship of God on Sunday instead of Saturday.
5. They believe that
it's the U.S.A. ("the second beast") that passes a
worldwide "Sunday law" that FORCES people everywhere to
worship God on Sunday instead of Saturday.
They have believed
this nonsense for
the past 150 years,
ever since this heretical sect was invented by false
prophetess Ellen G. White.
Of course, Adventists
HAVE NO ANSWERS when one asks:
1. WHERE in Scripture is
this "Sunday law" mentioned?
In case you're
wondering - NOWHERE!!!
2. HOW will
this happen when
the U.S. is predominantly a Protestant nation, and they
claim the Antichrist is the Catholic Pope?
3. HOW can
predominantly Protestant U.S.A. exercise
all papal authority in the Pope's presence? (Revelation
4. If the second
beast is a nation (the U.S.A.) and NOT an individual, HOW
does it MIRACULOUSLY "make fire come down FROM HEAVEN" in
the sight of men, as described in Revelation 13:13?
does the U.S.A. perform "miraculous signs" to deceive
mankind? (Revelation 13:14).
does the U.S.A. instill life (spirit) TO THE IMAGE OF THE
BEAST (presumably, the image of the Pope), causing it to
speak and have them killed who refuse to worship it?
7. HOW can the U.S.A.
be "the false prophet"?
8. The second beast
IS the false prophet (pseudologos or FALSE
PREACHER) since it is he who
promotes Antichrist worship. That's what A PREACHER does.
And if the "second
beast" and "false prophet" are not one and the same, then WHO
IS the "false prophet?
9. And, if they're
not one and the same, then there would be NOT ONE, but
TWO "false prophets" when the Bible mentions ONLY
ONE during the
tribulation (Revelation 16:13; 19:20).
10. HOW can three
unclean, demonic spirits come OUT OF THE MOUTH of the
dragon (Satan), the Antichrist (presumably, the Pope) and
OUT OF THE UNITED STATES' MOUTH? (Revelation 16:13-14)
the Pope of ROME is the Antichrist, WHY WOULD HE DESTROY
Rome, the seat of his own power and authority, as
Revelation 17:15-18 clearly describes? Makes NO SENSE at
12. Since there is no
pre-trib Rapture, according to the Adventist cult, and since
at Christ's Second Coming, the beast and false prophet
(presumably, the good, old U.S.A.) are hurled alive into
the lake of fire, then WHAT GOOD IS IT FOR ANYONE IN THE
U.S.A. to receive Christ?
Won't they be tossed
into the lake of fire ANYWAY, according to Revelation
I could - under no
circumstance - vote for a member of this satanic cult
anymore than I could vote for Hillary.
Americans like spunk.
It's hard to believe that they would want as President
someone as BORING, self-righteous, unimposing and low-key
as Ben Carson.
And I still cling to
the hope that all born-again believers will be raptured
BEFORE the November 2016 presidential elections in the
The question is: if
for some reason, it DOESN'T happen, and we're still around
in November of next year...
Do we REALLY want a guy
occupying the Oval Office who believes this sort of
UNBIBLICAL, nonsensical prophetic fantasy?
God might just allow Hillary,
who was a mediocre Secretary of State, to become AN EVEN
WORSE President, finish the job for Obama, and drive
this country ALL THE WAY INTO the ground.
Or He may allow a
Seventh Day Adventist to
lead "the second beast" into FULL subservience to
Antichrist, as HIS FALSE RELIGION teaches.
Either way, this
country's going down the tubes.
And God may even use
DUMB "evangelicals" to do it.
