IMPORTANT NOTICE TO OUR
Since our message
archives date back to 2011, some of our teachings may have
changed slightly over time. While in the interest of
honesty and transparency, we have kept the original
messages intact, OUR
UNDERSTANDING of certain doctrines may have changed during
the past 6 years. This
is particularly true pertaining to Bible prophecy.
Jesus Himself said
eschatology would be "sealed" UNTIL the time of the end (Daniel
12:4, 9) Consequently,
the closer we get to "the end", THE CLEARER certain
aspects of Bible prophecy will become, as His Holy Spirit
While by God's Grace we
would never KNOWINGLY and INTENTIONALLY teach error, this
would make our NEWEST messages most accurate,
OLDEST messages less
certain details in them, obsolete and no longer
Therefore, if there is
any discrepancy between what we say in the older messages
and what we say in NEWER
NEWER messages take precedence over the old,
as they contain our BEST and MOST UP-TO-DATE understanding
of the Bible and current events.
Please understand that
we share Truth with our readers, including
many unique and profound teachings that can't be found
anywhere else (ALL GLORY TO JESUS!), FREE

"Truly, I say to you, THIS
GENERATION WILL NOT PASS AWAY until
all these things take place" (Mark 13:30)
Oh, how I love the
Word of God!
His Word is ETERNAL
And I refer to both, Jesus
the Word Incarnate, and the written Word.
One thing that
thrills me about the written Word is how you can read a
passage THOUSANDS of times and you
You THINK you've

The Spirit SHOWS US
something in that passage that we have read countless
times and even memorized, THAT WE HAD NEVER SEEN BEFORE.

INTERESTING THAN what
this corrupt world can

Praise His glorious

To think that He is

What could make us feel MORE
SPECIAL and LOVED than THAT?
Glory to the Father,

The Bible verse

period) in which we live WILL NOT PASS AWAY (WON'T DIE)
until "ALL THESE THINGS take place" meaning, in context,

BIBLICAL GENERATION – PART
Jewish children begin
studying the Torah at age 5.
I remember when our
Jewish tour guide in Israel was asked “how long is a
biblical generation?” he DIDN’T EVEN BAT AN EYE and
instantly replied “a generation is 40 years”.
The Hebrew word for
“generation” is dor and
the Greek is genea.
O.K., here’s what
I’ve done: I’ve taken EVERY
biblical passage that CLEARLY assigns A SPECIFIC NUMBER OF
YEARS TO a “generation” or “generations”, and listed
1: Job 42:16:
“After this, Job lived 140
he saw his children and their children to the fourth GENERATION”.
We know that Job was
an adult and thus capable of immediate reproduction.
We don’t know how old
that fourth generation he got to see was, but they were
probably children or at most, teenagers. If we divide 140
by 4 we get 35.
If we divide by
three, we get 46.5 years.
If we split the difference down the middle, that’s VERY
CLOSE to 40 years.
all the generations from Abraham to David are fourteen...
And from David to the carrying away to Babylon fourteen...
the carrying away to Babylon to Christ are fourteen
We don't know the exact number
of years from Abraham to David, or even from David to the
Babylonian captivity, but we do know the exact year of
captivity to be 586 B.C., and the year of Messiah's birth
to be 0 A.D.
Since Matthew tells
us there were 14 GENERATIONS between the two, all we have
to do is divide 586 into 14 (586 /14) = 41½
21:6, 20 and 32. Jesus
said, in April of 34 A.D., that THAT
GENERATION would NOT
PASS AWAY without
Jerusalem and the temple being destroyed. It happened,
right on cue, in July-August, 70 A.D., 36 years (and
approximately 4 months) later.
Please note that He
didn’t say the temple would be destroyed a generation
later, but that it would be destroyed BEFORE the
generation passed away (BEFORE 40 years had passed).
he had served HIS
OWN GENERATION... fell asleep..."
And how long did
David serve HIS
GENERATION? The answer is found in 2
Samuel 5:4 "David
was 30 years old when he began to reign, and he
"... and He made them
wander in the wilderness FORTY
(40) YEARS, until ALL

the sight of the Lord was

was grieved with
THIS GENERATION, and

my works 40
Wherefore, I was grieved with
Bible only requires TWO
every matter to be established (Deuteronomy 19:15).
I just gave you SEVEN.
If we take Jesus'
genealogy in Matthew chapter 1 (from Abraham to David,
David to Babylonian captivity, and Babylon to Jesus) as
being 42 generations (14+14+14) and divide the approximate
time from Abraham to Jesus which is estimated to be about
2,100 years by 42, it equals 50.
conclude that a biblical generation is AT LEAST 40 years,
but NO MORE THAN 50 years.
returned to the Jews 49 years ago, and Jesus, per His own
RETURN before THIS GENERATION passes away (Luke
21:32), that means that Jesus' return must be VERY, VERY, VERY NEAR.
If His Second Coming, as per Daniel 9:25, happens 7
sabbatical weeks or shemittas FROM "the
word" to return and build biblical Jerusalem given in
1969, indeed, as our Lord said in Luke 21:32 THIS
generation will NOT have
"passed away" until ALL these things (Rapture,
tribulation, Second Coming) have taken place.
It means that WE
ARE THE GENERATION that
will witness His glorious return.
Amen. Come, Lord
As we have seen, the
length of A BIBLICAL GENERATION is
NO BIG MYSTERY: all we need to do is READ

I am SO TIRED of
people writing me that a biblical generation is “70
automatons they repeat ad
THEY HEARD from OTHER religious robots, who probably
picked it up at “Bi-BULL” College, and who
HAVEN’T STUDIED OR SEARCHED the Scriptures THEMSELVES, LIKE
THEY’RE SUPPOSED TO DO BEFORE they spread some
unscriptural myth (John 5:39; 2 Timothy 2:15).
“base” their ASSUMPTION on ONE passage of Scripture TAKEN
TOTALLY OUT OF CONTEXT.
COMPLETELY OVERLOOK the MANY biblical passages that DO
tell us what a biblical generation is.
Once and for all: Psalm
90 SAYS NO SUCH THING!!!
All that Moses said
in verse one of that Psalm is that GOD has been “our
dwelling place” THROUGHOUT ALL OUR
That’s ALL He
Verse two doubles up
on this assertion by saying that “from everlasting to
everlasting” (for ALL generations)
He IS God.
Verse 4 says: “For A
THOUSAND YEARS in your sight are but as yesterday when it
is past, and as a watch in the night”.
Does that mean that a
generation is A THOUSAND YEARS???
They have to SKIP ALL
THE WAY OVER TO VERSE 10 to make their dumb “case”:
“The days OF
OUR YEARS (NOT
of our “generations”) are 70 years; and IF WE
HAVE THE STRENGTH they
are 80 years”…
If you’re going to
make a case for a generation based on THAT ONE verse, then
you would have to say it’s 70-80 years, not merely “70”
“generation”, however, is CONSPICUOUSLY
MISSING from that verse. It
simply ISN’T THERE.
Moses was merely
GENERAL LIFESPAN among
Israelites at the time he wrote that Psalm.
Moses himself lived
to the ripe old age of
34:7). His successor Joshua lived to 110 (Joshua
We know that another
contemporary, Caleb, was still going strong at 85 years of
age, and probably lived to 100 or more (Joshua 14:10).
Moses wrote that Psalm
around 1,407 B.C., shortly before his death.
WE KNOW that ALL
Israelites that were 20 years OR OLDER (except
for Joshua, Caleb and some Levites) had
perished DURING THE PREVIOUS 40 YEARS, because they
had believed “the evil report” from the spies (Numbers
14:29-35; Deuteronomy 2:14).
Moses was referring to when
he says they lived to 70 or, AT MOST, 80 years, because
most had died at 60 years of age OR SHORTLY AFTER.
For those who CAN’T
ADD 20 +
40 = 60, 30 +
40 = 70 and 40 +
40 = 80.
All Moses was saying
GOD HAD KEPT HIS WORD by
NOT allowing them to enter the Promised Land, and by
of them die within that 40 year-period where
they’d wandered in the wilderness, EXACTLY as He’d
unbelieving bunch lived to 70, or at the most, 80 years of

the most glaringly incorrect -- and CONSEQUENTIAL -- MISTRANSLATIONS
1. IMMEDIATELY AFTER (Matthew
The Greek words eutheos

be translated as “immediately WITH”.

in this passage INDICATE that the tribulation HAS
JUST BEGUN and
JUDGMENTS will soon follow:
Scriptures (Isaiah 13:10,

mention THESE SAME SIGNS, clearly state they happen as the

tribulation judgments take place,

The same word (meta)
translated “after” in verse 29 is
CORRECTLY translated “with”
in verses 30 and 31.
Question: WHY did
they translate THE SAME WORD as “after” ONLY in verse 29,
but as “WITH” in the next two verses?
mistranslation shows HOW ORGANIZED RELIGION INTENTIONALLY
TAMPERED with the
Word of God to
MAKE IT reflect its false post-tribulation doctrine.
This passage clearly
says that the Day of the Lord (tribulation) CANNOT COME
unless "THE DEPARTURE"
(Rapture) takes place.
therefore, takes place AS
THE TRIBULATION BEGINS, NOT after
But, since this Holy
Spirit inspired Truth DOES NOT support official RELIGIOUS
doctrine, it was translated as “apostasy” in Roman
Catholic Bibles and as “falling away” in the Protestant
indicates MASSIVE DEFECTION from the faith.
And NOTHING'S “falling
away” from nowhere.
HO APOSTASIA, LITERALLY
MEANS “THE DEPARTURE”.
The Greek apostasia DOES
NOT MEAN “apostasy” (as in departure FROM
It would ONLY mean
the text SPECIFIES that the “departure” is FROM the faith, as
is the case in 1st Timothy 4:1:

FAITH SAVE HIM?
James was NOT talking
about SOUL salvation. He was talking ABOUT
SAVING POOR, PERSECUTED BELIEVERS in
Jerusalem (where he was Bishop) from
dying of STARVATION.
There was famine in
Jerusalem and surrounding areas. It was further aggravated
by terrible persecution of Christians by both the
traditional Jews and the Romans.
This is well
documented in secular history and supported by multiple
Scriptures (Acts 8:1; 11:27-30; 24:17; Romans 15:25-26; 1
Corinthians 16:1-3; 2 Corinthians 8:14; 2 Corinthians

the harlot religion made
it APPEAR as

save one’s SOUL.

is saying that
FAITH ALONE CANNOT SAVE a needy brother or sister from
PHYSICALLY dying of hunger.
In order to save other
believers from PHYSICAL DEATH, their faith had to be
accompanied by works, like SENDING THEM FOOD and money to

5. ABRAHAM JUSTIFIED BY

he had offered Isaac his son on the altar? (James 2:21)
translation should be “Did Abraham not DEMONSTRATE HIS

This is PROVEN BEYOND
DOUBT by verse 22 which says:
faith and what he did worked together. His

2:22, God's Word Translation).
And again in verse
You SEE that
a man SHOWS
THAT HE IS RIGHTEOUS
BY WORKS and NOT by faith alone.
All this passage says
is that Abraham MADE
THE INVISIBLE FAITH HE HAD VISIBLE (SEEN
by others) through his actions.
There are AT LEAST THREE
INSURMOUNTABLE problems with

declared righteous based ON FAITH ALONE, WITHOUT any works.

LEAST 30 YEARS BEFORE he
tried to offer Isaac.

I adore Jesus and
love His written Word.
However, some of
the eternal truths that comprise THE TOTAL, absolute
Truth, which His Holy Spirit inspired, have been badly
mangled, or altogether lost in translation.
As I’ve shared
often, the original Bible was written 3,500 years ago (Old

The Old Testament

WHERE ARE ALL THE
the last day, THAT GREAT DAY of the Feast (Hoshana Rabba
or Great Salvation), Jesus stood and said in a loud voice:
‘If any man thirst, let him COME
TO ME, AND DRINK.
HE THAT BELIEVES ON ME, as
the Scripture has said, OUT
OF HIS BELLY (inner
man, innermost being) SHALL
FLOW RIVERS OF LIVING WATER.’
(But this He spoke of the

Jesus is THE Truth.
Jesus NEVER lies.
And He said that
those who BELIEVE IN HIM would

WATER FLOWING from the Temple of God… (Ezekiel 47:1-9)
That living water
would rise to the ankles, then to the knees, THEN
TO WAIST (BELLY) LEVEL, and

could stop and that would bring LIFE to everyone and
everything it touched.
And WHO, according to
Scripture, IS the Temple of God?
YOU ARE!!! (1
Corinthians 3:17; 2 Corinthians 6:16)
That LIVING WATER
should be gushing out of us until it becomes a GREAT
SPIRITUAL TSUNAMI that sweeps us (raptures us) into the
Kingdom of God.
Isaiah and Habakkuk
both saw the day when that living water would cause GOD’S
GLORY TO COVER THE WHOLE EARTH “as the waters cover the

The big story from
the Vatican in recent days is Pope Francis’ apparent
willingness to consider women serving as deacons.
I say “APPARENT
willingness” because Francis often says one thing and then
backtracks from his earlier statements.
The Pope was asked:
diaconate is open only to men, married and not. WHAT
PREVENTS THE CHURCH FROM INCLUDING WOMEN AMONG PERMANENT
DEACONS, AS HAPPENED IN THE PRIMITIVE Church?
Why not create an
official commission that can study the question?”
Francis gave a
run-around answer the gist of it being that he was willing
to form such commission and that he planned to do just
Sure enough, the
following day the Vatican’s Secretariat for State, Italian
Archbishop Angelo Becciu, tweeted that the Pope had made a
surprise declaration indicating he was thinking about a
commission on women deacons.
However, he added a
word of caution:
“Let’s not rush the
That was followed by
a “clarification” from Vatican spokesman, Father Federico
Lombardi, who insisted, “The Pope DID NOT SAY he intends
to introduce a diaconal ordination for women.”
The Pope indicated
that he would consult the matter with the Roman Catholic's
"Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith".
already looked into the possibility of women deacon 14
It resulted in a
lengthy study by the International Theological Commission
that clearly opposed women deacons on the grounds that
ancient “deaconesses” were not the same thing as deacons
today, and that the current diaconate is firmly part of
the sacrament of Holy Orders, which is open only to men.
One must ask: WHY
must there be “a commission” to study such issues, WHEN
THE BIBLE IS CLEAR that there were women deacons in the
primitive Church, BEFORE Roman
Catholicism was invented. (Romans 16:1)
They were also WOMEN
EVANGELISTS (Romans 16:3; Philippians 4:2-3), and
Scripture mentions at least ONE WOMAN PASTOR (Colossians
4:15) and at least ONE WOMAN APOSTLE (Romans 16:7).
They were all
recognized as LEGITIMATE ministers of Christ by no less
than the Apostle Paul
Is the RCC’s
Theological Commission also going to declare that apostles
and evangelists WERE NOT in the first century WHAT THEY
CLEARLY says THERE WILL BE Christ-ordained apostles,
prophets, evangelists, pastors and teachers… UNTIL we ALL
come into THE UNITY OF THE FAITH.
Since we’re NOWHERE
NEAR such unity, at least in the natural, then
we must still HAVE THE SAME KIND OF MINISTRIES THEY HAD IN
THE FIRST CENTURY, the only difference being
that those who carry out today’s ministerial offices are
But this is THE
RELIGION that values traditions of men, in the false name
of “apostolic tradition” ABOVE both, the Incarnate and the
written Word of God.
GREAT PROSTITUTE does not only DISCRIMINATE AGAINST WOMEN,
but passed down its prejudiced tradition to its harlot
daughters who call themselves “protestant” and even
“evangelical”. (Revelation 17:5)
Aren’t you glad there
was NO ORGANIZED RELIGION in the first century?
The apostles KNEW
that in Christ there is “neither Jew nor Gentile, slave or
free, male or female” (Galatians 3:28).
The apostles DIDN’T
NEED to form “a commission” to study these issues.
They already had

Another BORING and
FRUITLESS “commission” to DENY and OPPOSE what Christ and
His Apostles established.
SATURDAY, MAY 21,
"A friend loves AT
ALL TIMES, and a brother is born for adversity"
Loyalty is A
VIRTUE seldom spoken of.
Loyalty is faithfulness
It means devotion or
steadfast commitment to a person, country,
group or cause, REGARDLESS
what that person, country or group may be experiencing --
good or bad.
Loyalty is A
anyone you would even consider as
a friend, let alone as spouse.
We have some
examples of this RARE virtue in God's Word:
Abraham was loyal to God, and
God was and IS (praise His Name) ETERNALLY loyal to
Abraham and to Abraham's Seed (us) (Galatians
Joseph -- a picture of Jesus if there ever
was one -- remained loyal to his brethren EVEN
DISOWNED him, BETRAYED him, ruined
his young life, and SOLD HIM into slavery (Genesis
Ruth was loyal to Naomi, even after her
husband's death, which forever put her in King David's,
hence in Jesus', genealogy (Ruth 1:16).
Jonathan was loyal to David, Elisha to Elijah, and
John the Baptist to Jesus (1 Samuel 20:17; 2 Kings 2:1, 4,
6; John 3:30).
apostle John remained loyal to His Lord, even when the
rest of the disciples fled, and
even stood before the cross, being the only eyewitness
among them to His Crucifixion (John 19:25-26).
Likewise, we have examples of DISLOYALTY in the Bible, the
two most egregious ones being Lucifer's betrayal which led
to his rebellion AGAINST God which forever turned him into hasatan,
the ENEMY, and Judas Iscariot's betrayal of Jesus.
Loyalty is glaringly LACKING
in modern society, including in Christian circles.
In fact, some of the
most blatantly DISLOYAL people I've known are
Someone starts a
congregation, makes all kinds of personal sacrifices,
devotes a large portion of his or her life to serving the
brethren, seeking God, ministering to their needs,
teaching them the word, offering counsel and

perfect (and WHO,
besides Jesus, EVER IS?) or
because we "disagree" with him or her on some SILLY ISSUE
that could be resolved through honest dialogue, and
seeking the Lord earnestly (without bias) IN SPIRIT -- the
pastor finds out that SOME OF THE PEOPLE HE'S HELPED THE
MOST have been stirring up members of his own congregation
- the congregation he built from scratch -- AGAINST HIM.
Instead of OPENLY discussing the issue, they've
been talking behind his back, gossiping,
making all sorts of mostly unfounded accusations, until
the situation becomes unbearable for all involved.
Next thing you know, those "other" members have turned
into a SPLINTER GROUP that has divided the brethren and
which inevitably ends up as a sad statistic in the annals
of ministerial casualties.
We make a LIFETIME commitment to
someone through marriage, then after the initial thrill
wears off, when things don't go as well as we had planned,
or when someone we consider more PHYSICALLY ATTRACTIVE
crosses our path, we promptly cheat and/or file for
Much to our shame, the divorce rate is
ACTUALLY HIGHER among self-professed "Christians" than
being fickle and TOTALLY disloyal.
Before I get 500 letters from insecure readers:
Yes, THERE ARE biblical grounds for divorce, but those
are rather EXTREME.
Yes, it takes TWO
people to keep a marriage going: if one spouse is
UNWILLING, there's not much the other spouse can do.
Yes, Jesus will
forgive those who have divorced for WHATEVER reason, if
they turn to Him in repentance and faith.
And NO, NO ONE will
go to hell because they divorced their spouse or because
they cheated on him or her.
We often experience disloyalty
within our own families: You were there for cousin Bob,
aunt Cynthia, and brother Ed in THEIR TIME OF NEED, but

SIGNS DON’T KILL
My goodness… I keep
hearing from believers terrified about the 10 days of

ALL forms of mass
communication and transportation will be interrupted.
Geography will be
rearranged and the world will be in a chaotic state.
But there’s NO
RECORD ANYWHERE of people dying in large numbers DURING
those 10 days, with TWO notable exceptions:
1. The UNSAVED who
see THE SIGNS and die from fear “of the things that are
coming on this earth” (Luke 21:25).
2. Christians who
ALREADY ARE being persecuted and murdered in certain parts
of the world. (Revelation 2:10).
There’s NO RECORD ANYWHERE
of deaths on a significant scale during the 10 days.
Matter of fact, in
Revelation 7:1 we have AN
SENT TO HALT ANY JUDGMENTS until
the 144,000 Israelites are sealed.
Obviously, then, God’s
people will be supernaturally protected –
and GATHERED – during those 10 days, in preparation for
the actual Rapture. (Matthew
But what about the GREAT
EARTHQUAKE described in Revelation 6:12?

What about the tsunamis

YOU’RE NOT HELPLESS!
THE ONLY THING we’re

Therefore Jesus MUST rule
and reign from our Temples, JUST AS He will one day rule
from the 4th and

Jesus MUST rule
these INDIVIDUAL Temples, BEFORE He
rules from that one.

without original sin…
When you’re born
He DESTROYED original
ALL THE SIN OF THE WORLD, INCLUDING ORIGINAL SIN.
He BECAME sin for us.
And He NAILED
Then He gave you HIS

I’m tired of
preachers lionizing sin and belittling Jesus’ AWESOME,
COMPLETE, PERFECT, AND ETERNAL Redemption from sin.
I’m tired of
Christians playing “the victim”, and wallowing in
self-pity, as if they were helpless marionettes.
I’m tired of watching

When you ONLY
THINK OF HIM when

When you DON’T

OF MONEY sitting:
And WHEN HE
HAD MADE A SCOURGE OF SMALL CORDS, HE DROVE THEM ALL OUT

OUT THE CHANGERS' MONEY, AND OVERTHREW THE TABLES;
And said unto them
that sold doves, Take these things away; don’t make my
Father's house a house of merchandise.”
And his disciples
remembered that it was written: The zeal of your house HAS
CONSUMED ME.” (John 2:13-17)
Boy have we screwed
things up in organized Christianism!
LIED TO US about
so many things!
The “Jesus” they
preach is a
sterilized, religiously correct version
of the REAL Jesus.
The “Jesus” they
preach is always “meek and mild”, sugary sweet, with NO
TEMPER OR ATTITUDE.
This passage says
THE REAL Jesus WASN’T as
sweet, meek or mild as RELIGION portrays Him.
God, on the other
hand, presents A
VERY HUMAN JESUS who, WHILE
BEING SINLESS, COULD express
ANGER, COULD feel
displeasure, and COULD EXPRESS BOTH not just with words, BUT
WITH PHYSICAL FORCE.
We are regularly
told, by Christian pastors, that THOSE BUILDINGS which
THEY (not God) INVENTED and ERECTED are
the “temple of God”.
That building is NOT the
“house of God”:

FIGHTING VS. RESTING
There is SO MUCH
confusion and CONTRADICTION in Christendom!
It’s easy to see why
unbelievers and skeptics think we’re all a bunch of
Why they think we’re
full of it and make fun of our incoherence.
There is NO
the “Christian” message: preachers say one thing one
moment, and then CONTRADICT themselves the next.
ONLY MEAN ONE THING:
Their preaching and teaching
DOES NOT COME FROM GOD.
Because God is NOT the
author of confusion!!!
And God NEVER contradicts
If He did, He’d be AS BIG A
LIAR as some of those peddling their lies on “Christian”
A couple of examples:
1. On the one hand
they say that “God is a GOOD God”:
So far so good…
On the other hand
they teach that UNLESS
you SEND THEM a donation, God won’t bless you, prosper
you, or give you your heart’s desire.
If that is, indeed,
the case, then He
ISN’T a “GOOD God” at all.
I’m a NO GOOD, lousy
sinner, and I would never set conditions on my children in
order to provide for their legitimate desires or needs.
INFINITELY GOOD and PERFECT Heavenly
Father is regularly accused of doing JUST THAT.
If such teaching is true,
then God (perish the very thought!) is A BAD God.
A COLD, HEARD-HEARTED God!
A TOTAL despot!
basic “word of faith” teaching has been, for the past 60
plus years, that if you want something from God, you ask
Him in faith, without doubting, believing that you receive
when you ask, and then you STAND ON that belief, and
CONFESS with your mouth OVER and OVER that you have what
you asked for… until IT MATERIALIZES.
And yet a “word of
faith” preacher recently taught (and I’ve heard it from
OTHER “word of faithers” as well) that “you’re going to
FIGHT FOR your
stuff, and for everything that rightfully belongs to you

Then, adding insult
to mendacity, he added “don’t shout me down ‘cause I’m

used him to bring them out of SLAVERY and into freedom.
God had promised to lead
them to a land FLOWING

Israel across the Red Sea on foot and on dry ground.

And AFTER ALL those
marvelous wonders, ALL

SLAVERY still remains in
their rebellious hearts TODAY.
NOTHING’S CHANGED in 3,500

But SLAVES CAN’T HELP IT.
SLAVES can’t process Grace.
The concept of Grace, the
concept of GETTING SOME WONDERFUL BLESSING that they DO

totally escapes THE SLAVE MINDSET.
Slaves, you see, are used TO
WORKING FOR what
little “blessing” they get.
Egyptians fed the Israelites AS
LONG AS THEY WORKED TO EXHAUSTION and
DID WHAT THEY WERE TOLD.
They didn’t feed them MUCH.
They didn’t give them good food. JUST ENOUGH TO
SURVIVE, so they could CONTINUE WORKING.

GIVEN UP ON JESUS?
Many people have just
given up on Jesus.
Some have given up on
Him because the Rapture hasn't happened at the time THEY
THOUGHT it should.
That's just spiritual
However, my main
concern is those who
grew up in Christian homes, and
were brought up in some form of "Christian" religion.
A perfect example of
this is TV host Bill Maher, a self-professed atheist who
grew up Roman Catholic.
Another example is
Ted Turner, founder and former head of CNN, who grew up in
the Bible Belt, was exposed to the inner workings of
evangelical Christianism, had firsthand exposure to its
greed and lack of power, inability to provide answers to
his father's suicide, or to his sister's untimely death,
and became agnostic.
What happens to Ted,
Bill and many others is that they
are taught man invented religion instead
of PERSONAL RELATIONSHIP WITH THE LIVING Jesus.
They either perceive
the Christian faith as a bunch of "DON'T DO THAT'S" that
are impossible for any sinful mortal to live up to.
Hence they throw in
the towel, thinking to themselves "I'll NEVER measure up".
Of course you won't!
None of us do!
That's WHY we

We need to stop
trying to produce OUR OWN goodness or OUR OWN

HIS RIGHTEOUSNESS, by
inviting Him (Jesus) TO LIVE IN US.
have NO RIGHTEOUSNESS of our own: none, ZERO.
The ONLY RIGHTEOUSNESS IN
THE ENTIRE UNIVERSE is
that of Jesus.
That's what Christians need
to be teaching, instead of "don't
do" this or "don't do" that.
Well hold on, Martel:
Ted's a well known womanizer...
forget that he was married to Jane Fonda (which
in Christianism is as close to the "unpardonable sin" as
Didn't Jesus come TO
Didn't Jesus ALREADY
PAY FOR every single one of Ted's, Jane's (and
Judy's, Ashley's, Bill's, Mike's, or Martel's) sins?
Either we REALLY BELIEVE
THAT HE DID, or
WE'RE NOT Christians!
Make up your minds,
self-righteous religion mongers!
yet another reason:
There are many who
grew up Christian, then went to college and encountered
arguments made against God and against the Christian faith
they were not equipped to handle or answer, let alone
They were NOT TAUGHT
at their worship center, in Sunday School, Christian youth
group, Christian Middle School, or High School, about
the "outside world" or about how to stand up for the
faith, and were caught TOTALLY UNPREPARED.
Instead, they were
taught 300 boring hymns. Or 50 "contemporary Kristian"
with mindless, meaningless, religious fluff.
When he founded CNN,
Ted Turner sarcastically said he would be broadcasting
"until the end of the world" and that he would sign off
with the hymn "Nearer, My God, to Thee".
Even as a Christian,
I have to appreciate the humor. I also TOTALLY
understand where he's coming from.
They were taught crap,
like memorizing the names of the 7 deacons in the Book of
Acts (oh yeah... that'll come in handy when someone
questions whether Jesus really rose from the dead, or
whether He even EXISTED).
They were NEVER
TAUGHT WHY WE
BELIEVE in Christ.
They were taught that
He rose from the dead, which is true, but
DO WE KNOW that He rose? WHAT EVIDENCE IS THERE?
Since all religion is
designed to make its subjects co-dependent, they were
never encouraged or taught how to THINK INDEPENDENT of
religion, or how study the Bible and historic sources for
themselves, and seek
Truth on their own.
they go to college and get clobbered and even ridiculed by
their peers and professors for their faith, AND
THEIR LACK OF SPIRITUAL FOUNDATION IS EXPOSED, THEY JUST
They reason that, if
all these smart people, all these college professors are
nonbelievers, they MUST BE right. There must NOT be a God.
'Cause if there WERE a God, then
surely my Christian religion or my Christian worship
center, --which taught me COUNTLESS TIMES to pay 10% of my
salary or God would put a curse on me,-- WOULD
HAVE GIVEN ME SOMETHING WITH WHICH TO COUNTER these
Since they DIDN'T,
then these objections to God, Jesus -- and to His very
existence -- MUST BE TRUE.
THAT IS WHY this
ministry often deals with such matters. We answer both
unbelievers' arguments and, at the same time, give
believers spiritual ammunition and a SOLID foundation on
which to build their faith.
Religion gets a
freakin' "F" on preparing its mindless clones to face and
And ANOTHER freakin’
“F" for building their flimsy faith on quicksand, NOT on

"WORTHY" TO ESCAPE
Luke 21:36 offers ONE
OF THE MOST UNFORTUNATE and
MISLEADING translations of Jesus' words found in the New
This is how it reads
in the KJV and several other English translations:
"Watch therefore, and
pray always, THAT YOU MAY BE ACCOUNTED WORTHY TO ESCAPE
all these things that shall come to pass and to stand
before the Son of man".
See that? It says
that, in order to go in the Rapture, and escape the
tribulation, we must be found "worthy".
This is the ONE verse
to which legalists FRANTICALLY CLING in order to "prove"
that going in the Rapture DEPENDS ON our conduct and our
WHAT, you may be
wondering, is wrong with this passage?
The words "ACCOUNTED WORTHY" are
NOWHERE FOUND IN

It has NOTHING to

It comes from two
Greek words, kata, meaning "down" or "under" and ischuo which
means "TO HAVE STRENGTH or
So, what this passage
ACTUALLY AND LITERALLY SAYS is:
"Watch therefore, and
pray always, THAT
YOU MAY HAVE THE STRENGTH OR POWER DOWN UNDER TO ESCAPE all
these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before
the Son of man".
And Jesus WASN’T talking
about Australia, but that
we may have POWER “DOWN UNDER” in our spirit, which
is presently in
our stomach, John 7:38.
Jesus IS the
POWER OF God (1 Corinthians 1:24).
This verse is telling
us, IN ESSENCE, THE SAME AS Matthew 25:1-12,that ONLY
THOSE WHO HAVE Jesus in their hearts, His POWER and
His ANOINTING (oil) or Spirit are going into the marriage
It’s telling us, as
Johnny Cash would have said, “to

THE RAPTURE PROCESS –
When we consider
Revelation 6:12 – 7:10 together with OTHER passages of
Scripture that speak of the same blessed event, we get AN
EVEN CLEARER and more detailed picture of the Rapture
“Immediately with the
tribulation of those days SHALL
THE SUN BE DARKENED, AND
THE MOON SHALL NOT GIVE ITS LIGHT, and THE
STARS SHALL FALL FROM HEAVEN, and THE POWERS OF THE
HEAVENS SHALL BE SHAKEN:
30 And then SHALL
APPEAR THE SIGN OF the
Son of man in heaven: and then shall all the tribes of the
earth mourn, and THEY
SHALL SEE the
Son of man (Jesus) COMING
IN THE CLOUDS OF HEAVEN with
power and great glory.
31 And He shall send
His angels with a great sound of a trumpet, AND
THEY SHALL GATHER TOGETHER HIS ELECT FROM THE FOUR WINDS,
FROM ONE END OF HEAVEN TO THE OTHER.
32 Now learn a
parable of the fig tree: When its branch is yet tender,
and puts forth leaves, you know that summer is near:
33 So LIKEWISE
YOU, WHEN YOU
SHALL SEE ALL THESE THINGS, KNOW
THAT IT IS
NEAR, EVEN AT THE DOORS.” (Matthew 24:29-33)
Jesus tell believers “WHEN
YOU SEE all
these things” if, as the prophecy establishment HAS SOLD
US FOR YEARS, there are “no signs” that precede the
WHY would Jesus say
YOU SEE all
these things KNOW
that it is NEAR” if, as the prophecy
establishment HAS SOLD US FOR YEARS, we are raptured IN AN
SIGNS OR WARNING: one split second we’re here,
and the next we’re there?
DOUBLE Ooops !
The same Rapture
Process is repeated, almost verbatim, in Mark 13:24-29.
(Actually, Mark wrote his Gospel before Matthew wrote
his). And they would have both heard these things DIRECTLY
FROM JESUS’ LIPS. (Matthew 24:3; Mark 13:3-4)
We see the Rapture
process again in Luke 21:25-28:
SHALL BE SIGNS IN THE
SUN, and in the moon, and in the stars; and
upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the
sea and the waves roaring;
failing them for fear, and for looking toward those things
which are coming on the earth: for the powers of heaven
shall be shaken.
27And THEN SHALL THEY SEE
THE SON OF MAN COMING
IN A CLOUD with
power and great glory:
THESE THINGS BEGIN… then
LOOK UP, AND LIFT UP YOUR HEADS; FOR YOUR REDEMPTION DRAWS
NEAR.” (Luke 21:25-28)
Did I just read “THERE
SHALL BE SIGNS”?
When the prophecy
establishment has LIED TO US for years and years and told
us “there are NO SIGNS” that the Rapture’s about to
Isn’t THAT false
DIRECT CONTRADICTION of
Jesus, who said THERE
WILL BE SIGNS?
And if the Rapture
happens “IN THE TWINKLING OF AN EYE” before we even
realize what’s happened, WHY ON EARTH WOULD JESUS TELL US “when
these things BEGIN, then
LOOK UP, for your redemption DRAWS
Do you suppose these
guys are more
preoccupied with SELLING WORTHLESS
“prophecy” BOOKS than with Truth?
Finally, there’s 1
“For this we say unto
you by the Word of the Lord, THAT
WE WHO ARE ALIVE AND REMAIN UNTO THE COMING OF the
Lord shall not precede them who are asleep.

trump of God: and the dead in Christ SHALL
WHO ARE ALIVE AND REMAIN SHALL
BE CAUGHT UP TOGETHER
WITH THEM in
the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we
ever be with the Lord.” (1 Thessalonians 4:15-17)
The very fact that
ALL the “dead in Christ” MUST
rise FIRST, and THEN we
are all caught
up TOGETHER, shows that it DOES NOT HAPPEN in
When we put all these
Scriptures together, they show a pretty detailed sequence
of events THAT LEAD TO the actual Rapture (catching up of
believers into the heavenly realm):
TRIBULATION BEGINS with
a large quake: the sun turns black and the moon blood-red.
(Joel 2:31; Matthew 24:29; Revelation 6:12)
2. The heavens, and
heavenly bodies, are also shaken. (Matthew 24:29; Mark
3. Stars fall from
sky. (Matthew 24:29; Mark 13:25; Revelation 6:13)
4. Sky rolls up like
a scroll and vanishes with a loud, whistling sound
(Revelation 6:14; 2 Peter 3:10, 12)
5. Jesus appears in
the clouds. (Matthew 24:30; Luke 21:27; Revelation 6:16)
6. Unsaved people run
and hide (Revelation 6:15-17)
7. Jews and other
tribes of Israel mourn and lament when THEY
SEE THE LIVING, risen Jesus COMING IN THE CLOUDS as
He promised (Matthew 24:30; Zechariah 12:10-14).
All those who CALL ON
JESUS – even IN THOSE FINAL MOMENTS of this Age – WILL
BE SAVED. (Joel
8. Jesus sends His
angels to gather His elect. (Matthew 24:31; Mark 13:27)
9. The 144,000
Israelites from each of the 12 tribes (except Dan) are
sealed. (Revelation 7:1-8)
10. There’s A
all the dead in Christ. (1 Thessalonians 4:16)
11. LIVING BELIEVERS,
which have been gathered by God’s angels, are
TRANSFORMED from mortal to immortal in the twinkling of an
eye. (1 Corinthians 15:51-52)
12. The resurrected
saints and living believers – ALL NOW IN GLORIFIED,
IMMORTAL BODIES – are CAUGHT
UP TOGETHER to
meet Jesus in the air (1 Thessalonians 4:17)
13. There’s a brief
crossover period into the heavenly dimension. (1
Thessalonians 4:17; Revelation 7:1-8, 13-14)
14. Then the
COLLECTIVE CHURCH appears SUDDENLY in heaven in glorified
bodies. (Revelation 7:9)

from the fact that the prophecy establishment took 1
Corinthians 15:51-51 (quoted above) and ran
with it IGNORING other
passages that CLEARLY indicate A

TRANSFORMATION, AND OUR collective TRANSLATION.
As with any other

God says about it in His written Word.
Otherwise we end up
with HALF TRUTHS, time and again.

FASHION AND BEAUTY
Every so often women
still ask about such things as "is it O.K. to wear
make-up, cut, straighten or curl your hair, or wear
slacks? Yes, yes, and YES!
I thought WE’D
LEFT ALL THAT LEGALISTIC BONDAGE BEHIND in
the 70's and 80's, but apparently, it’s still around.
cutting or styling your hair, or wearing jeans, or any
other kind of slacks, or wearing jewelry.
that supposed "ministers" of Christ SPEND
SO MUCH TIME AND ENERGY FOCUSING ON THE EXTERNAL, INSTEAD
OF THE INTERNAL.
If they spent half
that time focusing ON DEVELOPING THE SPIRIT, the INNER
MAN, THE INNER JESUS, we’d have a spiritual
giant of a church, instead of a pathetic pygmy.
1. The "ANTI-PANT" Scripture is
Deuteronomy 22:5: "the woman shall not wear that which
pertains to a man, neither shall a man put on a woman’s
garment: for all that do so are abominations to the Lord
A. That was part of
the Sinai law. Jesus DELIVERED
US FROM the
Sinai law (Romans 7:6; 10:4).
He DOESN’T DEAL WITH
US by the Law (thank God!) but by
the Royal Law of Divine Love and Divine Grace. (Romans
B. This verse is
talking about women DELIBERATELY
DRESSING TO LOOK LIKE men,
or men DELIBERATELY

It refers to CROSS-DRESSERS
C. There are men’s
WOMEN’S PANTS. Anyone
with half a brain knows the difference between one type
and the other. That’s why department stores have a section
for men’s apparel and another section for ladies’.
Women who wear WOMEN’S
NOT, repeat, NOT dressing
D. When that verse
was written (some 3,500 years ago) THERE
WERE NO PANTS!
AND WOMEN WORE ROBES.
Therefore, this verse CANNOT
refer to women’s
slacks or ANY OTHER KIND OF “pants”.
Therefore, to say
that that verse forbids women to wear WOMEN’S slacks IS A
BLATANT, UNSCRIPTURAL LIE.
2. The "ANTI - MAKE-UP"
says that Jezebel, the evil queen, "painted her face, and
placed a tiara on her head, and looked out a window".
This, religious minds
contend, proves that "women of God" AREN’T
SUPPOSED TO WEAR MAKE-UP.
(By that line of
reasoning, they’re not supposed to wear tiaras or look out
of windows, either).
It is A
SAD, SAD DAY in
God’s Kingdom when His supposed “ministers” WHO ARE
WOEFULLY IGNORANT OF HIS WORD -- EVEN
OF HIS GOSPEL --
and, obviously, LACK SPIRITUAL DISCERNMENT -- choose to
focus on such INCONSEQUENTIAL

guided by the Holy Spirit, SINGLE-HANDEDLY
SAVED ISRAEL FROM ANNIHILATION.
Had Israel been
destroyed by the Persians, as wicked Haman had plotted,
BE NO MESSIAH, NO SAVIOR, and ALL
MANKIND WOULD BE DOOMED.
THAT FACT pretty
much DESTROYS the
stupid anti-make-up argument.
3) Finally, there’s THE "ANTI-HAIRCUT"
SCRIPTURE. 1st Corinthians
yourselves: Is it proper for a woman to pray to God WITH
HER HEAD UNCOVERED? Does not nature itself
teach you… that IF
A WOMAN HAS LONG HAIR, IT IS A GLORY TO HER: FOR HER
HAIR IS GIVEN HER FOR A COVERING"?
preachers teach, PROVES
WOMEN AREN’T SUPPOSED TO CUT THEIR HAIR. . . EVER.
That Scripture DOES
NOT SAY that
women SHOULD NEVER cut
If you read the PREVIOUS
VERSES, they talk about a woman SHAVING her
head: (verse 6) “it is a disgrace for a woman TO
HAVE HER HAIR CUT OFF OR HER HEAD SHAVED”.
Paul was against
women shaving their heads or wearing their hair extremely
It’s one thing to have hair
LONG ENOUGH to
LOOK LIKE A
WOMAN, it’s ANOTHER thing to NEVER cut
Nowhere does this Scripture, OR
ANY OTHER SCRIPTURE,
indicate that feminine hair is NEVER to be cut.
As for those who use
these verses as pretext to impose head covering on women,
verse 15 tells us, clear as a bell, that a
woman’s hair IS her covering.
I have a couple of
suggestions for this bunch of stupid religious losers who
focus on such things: first of all, GET
That’s right: Invite
Jesus TO ENTER
If you were saved, YOU’D
KNOW SALVATION IS BY GRACE THRU FAITH, NOT
BY WORKS LEST ANY MAN (OR WOMAN) SHOULD BOAST (Ephesians
Salvation is A
TOTALLY UNDESERVED GIFT that CANNOT
BE EARNED by
works, or by LOOKING a certain way.
It CANNOT BE EARNED BY
UGLINESS, or by ANY OTHER MEANS.
Second, unless you do
get saved, QUIT
PRETENDING TO BE A
MINISTER OF JESUS CHRIST, AND JOIN THE LOCAL MOSQUE.
I’m sure you’ll feel
more comfortable there, where every woman IS FORCED TO
COVER HER HEAD.
HOW CAN THE CHURCH WASTE
PRECIOUS TIME ON ALL THIS LEGALISTIC CRAP?
any of this HAVE
TO DO WITH SALVATION, for heaven’s sake?
it have to do WITH
ONE’S HEART? Or winning the lost? Or growing in
faith? Or developing godly character? Or living and
walking in the spirit?
Does God really care
whether women wear their hair long, medium or short? HOW
EXACTLY DOES THAT CHANGE who
they are inside?

outer appearance, but GOD
LOOKS AT THE HEART" (1st Samuel
