OUT TO PASTURE
A friend of this ministry recently wrote with a
The congregation he attends, and has attended for
over a decade, has decided that
they want to
GET RID OF THEIR PASTOR.
They want to
put their pastor “out to pasture”.
They want to replace him with the assistant pastor,
who is doubtlessly younger, and whom they perceive
as more “in touch” with modern society.
I wish I could say this is a rare incident in the
Body of Christ, but religious politicking,
ministerial competition, ministerial ousters, and
“church splits” have become
exception, but the norm.
Unless the pastor is NOT preaching the Gospel,
unless he is teaching unbiblical doctrine, or fallen
into some very serious moral predicament, and/or has
some mental impediment that makes him unfit and
unable to minister, if he’s been our pastor for
over a decade, we OWE HIM
we OWE HIM SPIRITUAL ALLEGIANCE.
Divisions are ALWAYS the result OF BEING CARNAL. (1 Corinthians 3:3)
Those who want to REPLACE THE PASTOR – against his
will – are NOT acting in the spirit, but IN THE
We don’t EAT (spiritually) at someone’s table
week FOR 5, 8, or 12 YEARS, and then DUMP THEM
like trash, BECAUSE THEY NO LONGER SERVE our
God KNOWS what He’s doing.
We DO NOT
override God’s will and replace it with our DEPRAVED
MIND’S CARNAL IDEAS of what a pastor SHOULD be.
Those who want to replace him are a bunch of
CARNAL, SELF-SERVING JERKS, who need to fall on
their faces and
of their disgraceful attitude and disloyalty.
By the way,
THE CALLING OF GOD is what decides who leads a
congregation, NOT THE CARNAL, MENTAL
FALLIBLE, MORTAL “members of the board”.
(Ephesians 4:11; 1 Corinthians 12: 4-11, 21)
And if you DON’T THINK that he (or she) is called by
God, then we must ask:
the heck have you been attending his or her
congregation all these years?”
Last time I checked, God’s gifts
If God called that person into the ministry and
placed him (or her) as leader of that congregation,
we have NO
BUSINESS REPLACING HIM (or her).
Unless, of course, we think we KNOW BETTER THAN GOD.

THE HECK ARE WE to do so?

FEAR OF SINNING
Fear of sinning keeps people in bondage.
That is why those who CLAIM to “observe the 10
Commandments”, “observe the Torah”, “observe the
Sabbath”, “observe Old Testament dietary laws” (kashrut),
that is why ALL LEGALISTS live in bondage.
THE REASON that,
despite their hypocritical claims to the contrary,
they sin JUST
AS MUCH AS anyone else, if not MORE.
THAT is why
ALL OF THEM are UNSAVED and headed straight to hell.
The Sinai Law IS
NOT OF FAITH. (Galatians
The Sinai Law (although its commandments are good
and holy) PRODUCES FEAR.
And FEAR causes us to sin EVEN MORE than we normally
Fear may keep us from doing certain things on the
SIN BEGINS IN THE HEART.
And FEAR DOES NOT REGENERATE OUR HEARTS.
If we break EVEN ONE “commandment”
– in our
ENTIRE LIFE – JUST ONE – we BECOME
GUILTY OF breaking THE WHOLE LAW (James 2:8-10)
That is why the Sinai Law CANNOT SAVE. (Galatians
That is why the Sinai Law CONDEMNS. (Romans 7:8-9)
The Sinai Law actually PUTS A CURSE ON those who DO
NOT obey it, unfailingly, to the last jot and
Jesus said that NO ONE ever kept the Sinai Law (John
That is why there are NONE righteous under the Sinai
Law – NOT EVEN ONE (Psalm 53:1; Isaiah 64:6)
That is why ALL who are of the works of the Law ARE
UNDER THE CURSE (Galatians 3:10)
TRUSTING a Law that you HAVE NEVER KEPT?
Do you HOPE to be saved at some “future” time, such
as Christ’s Second Coming?
If so, you
WILL NEVER BE saved.
Salvation CANNOT take place “in the future” because
there is NO SUCH THING.
By the time what we perceive as “the future”
arrives, IT’S PRESENT.
That is why salvation is NOT a “future” event, but
That is why salvation is ALWAYS NOW. (2 Corinthians
That is why Salvation is NOT, either in whole or in
part, through the Sinai Law. (Hebrews 10:1)
Salvation is ONLY through faith (COMPLETE TRUST) IN
He did ALL that is necessary for your ETERNAL
(John 3:16-17; John 5:24)
Salvation, therefore, is RECEIVING Christ into your
heart and TRUSTING what He did to save you. (John
Please do it –
being Christian involves receiving Jesus into our
hearts as only God and Savior and TRUSTING Him
completely for Salvation…
Since being born
from above is A MYSTICAL EXPERIENCE by which Christ
Himself comes to LIVE IN us…

ALL TRUE CHRISTIANS ARE
Again: ALL TRUE Christians
We may not think of
ourselves in such terms.
We may not go around publicizing it. But that
is, in fact, WHAT WE ARE.

experienced the risen Savior in their innermost

Unfortunately, what we get in 99% of
these forums is religion.
Religion DOES NOT
focus on Christ IN us.
Religion SEPARATES US
from the very Christ it supposedly preaches.
Even Evangelical religions which at least, in
most cases, preach the born-again experience of
Christ in us,
SEEM TO FORGET, as soon as we receive Him, THAT
FROM THAT MOMENT FORWARD Jesus LIVES IN US 24/7.
Jesus DOESN’T live in us ONLY WHEN WE FEEL all
tingly and happy.
He DOESN’T live in us ONLY
when our faith soars.
He DOESN’T live in us
ONLY when we congregate on Saturday, Sunday or
He DOESN’T live in us ONLY when
we act nicely.
He is JUST AS MUCH IN US when we DON’T.
He is IN US when we do or say THE WRONG THING,
just as much as He is when we do or say the RIGHT
He is in us
ALL THE TIME.
If we DEVELOPED “Jesus IN US”
CONSCIOUSNESS, we would HARDLY EVER sin. We wouldn’t
even have to TRY to obey “commandments” or to act in
“Christ like” fashion.
It would come to us
MORE THAN naturally, it would come
Religion focuses ON SIN – ON THE VERY SINS
THAT JESUS REMOVED – FOR ALL ETERNITY!
Religion HAS MORE FAITH in sin’s ability to damn and
SEPARATE US FROM Jesus, than it has on Jesus’ Blood
TO CLEANSE FROM SIN FOREVER, AND TO UNITE US to Him,
making us ONE WITH Him – ALWAYS!!!
SEE OURSELVES AS sinners, instead of seeing
ourselves AS JESUS (as Christ-ians) SIN
CONSCIOUSNESS WILL INEVITABLY SEPARATE US from
That is why the New Testament
repeatedly CALLS US “SAINTS”.
His Chosen ones, His HOLY “set apart” ones.
Chosen FOR WHAT?
Set apart FOR WHAT?
To BE Jesus on
earth! To provide Christ A HUMAN BODY (ours) through
which He can manifest on earth!
To cover the
earth WITH THE KNOWLEDGE OF the glory of the Lord,
as the waters cover the sea. (Habakkuk 2:14)
Brothers and sisters, ALL OF US are guilty of
We have to STOP focusing on
sin. We have to STOP seeing ourselves as “sinners”.
Even when we DON’T ACT PERFECTLY ON THE OUTSIDE,
GREATER IS THE JESUS WHO LIVES INSIDE! (1 John 4:4)
We MUST – ABSOLUTE MUST – focus on the INNER CHRIST:
…On His Perfect Love placed by the Holy Spirit in
our hearts, on His Beauty, on His faith, on His
Holiness, on His SINLESSNESS, on His Righteousness,
on His Perfection, on His Power, on His authority.
And start ACTING and SPEAKING accordingly.
That INNER Jesus…. IS YOU!
By using ORGANIZED RELIGION to keep us focused on
THE SINS THAT CHRIST ALREADY REMOVED FOR ALL THE
EONS OF ETERNITY, satan has kept us NEUTRALIZED.
He has made us INEFFECTIVE and largely irrelevant.
By God’s grace, we may be saved, BUT WE’RE GOOD FOR
NOTHING UNTIL we REALIZE WHO WE ARE IN CHRIST.
Better yet, UNTIL WE REALIZE THAT THE SAME JESUS WHO
CREATED, RULES AND SUSTAINS THE UNIVERSE, LIVES IN
ALL THE TIME!
Not only when we “FEEL” like He does:
ALL THE TIME!
Believe it or not, WE are His Temples on earth.
We are His Body on earth.
We are His Righteousness --- RIGHT NOW.
That’s why we’re called THE BODY OF Christ.
Let Jesus HAVE YOUR BODY.
Let Jesus HAVE ALL OF YOU.
FOCUS on His Presence IN YOU – all the time.

For those who think it’s weird to speak of Jesus in
such terms, I have several questions:

EXPERIENCING CHRIST - PART TWO
The reason people
don't believe in Christ
is because they HAVEN'T EXPERIENCED Christ.
There are also many who DO BELIEVE in
Him, but haven't EXPERIENCED Him.
ONLY believe with
their HEADS, but Jesus has NEVER GOTTEN INTO
There are also those who have Jesus in their hearts,
yet HAVEN’T EXPERIENCED Him SINCE they became
If Jesus hasn't entered your heart, if you haven't
experienced the Divine One, personally and
intimately, you don't know what you're missing!
And if He lives in your heart, and YOU DON’T TAKE
ADVANTAGE OF THAT MARVELOUS PRIVILEGE, YOU ARE
THE MOST ENJOYABLE PART OF BEING Christian.
Those who've experienced Jesus KNOW that
They KNOW He rose from the dead and LIVES FOREVER.
Those who experience Christ
have Christ living in their hearts... ALL THE

Whether we are aware or not,
He lives in

is A LIVING
every living person should experience Him personally and
For those who doubt His resurrection, this is one
way you can find out if He's alive or dead, and
settle the question once and for all.
There's too much "head knowledge" and
EXPERIENTIAL KNOWLEDGE of our Savior.
Organized religion values theories and
dogmas ABOUT Jesus, while altogether dismissing
Jesus Himself, and taking His Presence for granted.
Even those Christians who have experienced Him have
only done it ONCE, when they were born again.
Since then, they've totally ignored Him. They've
completely forgotten about the One they carry
They live completely OBLIVIOUS TO and DISCONNECTED
FROM His Spirit.
Jesus wants to be PART OF your life.
More than that,
our whole life.

MYSTICISM – FINAL PART

For if someone comes to you
than the Jesus we preached,

OR A DIFFERENT GOSPEL FROM THE ONE
YOU ACCEPTED, you put up with it easily enough.” (2
an unsaved person SINCERELY wishes to know IF there is a God or WHO
the true God is, all they need to do is SEEK HIM.
If they SEEK HIM, with ALL their hearts,
PRECONCEIVED IDEAS of who that God may be,
THEY WILL FIND HIM.
Jesus will move heaven and earth
to manifest Himself to such people so that they can
genuinely KNOW Him.
This applies in particular to atheists,
agnostics and people who’ve never heard the Gospel.
What about people who HAVE heard the
Gospel and have either received Jesus, or NOT
If they seek the
TRUE, BIBLICAL Jesus with all their hearts, they
WILL FIND HIM!
ABSOLUTELY, 100% guaranteed!
And once you find Him,
you are to
seek that same Jesus and experience SPIRITUAL
INTIMACY WITH HIM, ON A DAILY BASIS, and as
often as you can throughout the day.
One wonderful way of having intimacy with
our Savior is
to delve deeply into His written Word, and
talk to Him about it.
Another wonderful way is to THINK about
the sheer wonderfulness of Jesus, how much He loves
WHAT HE DID to save you.
Communicating with Him and telling Him how much YOU
LOVE Him and how totally splendid He is.
Such thinking leads to SPIRITUALLY
FALLING IN LOVE with Jesus.
Falling in love with Jesus
to, but is FAR MORE THRILLING THAN, falling
deeply in love in the natural.
NO THING in this world –
NOTHING – is more delightful and thrilling than EXPERIENCING
spiritual intimacy with the RISEN, EVER-LIVING God
and Savior. (Psalm 16:10)
There are no adequate words in human speech to
express the SHEER DELIGHT of EXPERIENCING His
TRULY DIVINE Love.
However, if we “seek Jesus”
NOT as the true,
BIBLICAL Jesus who is God, and who is THE ONLY WAY
to be saved, but as some great moral teacher
or “ascended master”, YOU WON’T FIND THE REAL JESUS, and
satan, as we read above, will PROVIDE a FAKE “Jesus”.
If you believe in a “Jesus” who is a
prophet of Islam, and NOT the Son of God,
you DON’T BELIEVE
IN the REAL Jesus, nor will you ever FIND the real
If you believe in a “Jesus” that is some
“ascended spiritual master” along with Krishna,
Buddha, Confucius, Lao Tzu AND OTHERS,
who is NOT the ONLY
WAY of Salvation, who is NOT the ONE AND ONLY GOD of
the universe, you’re seeking A FAKE “JESUS”
– INVENTED BY YOUR OWN DEPRAVED IMAGINATION, AND YOU WILL NEVER FIND –
or EXPERIENCE –
THE REAL Jesus.
Here’s the bottom line:
God CANNOT be fooled.
what is in our hearts.
It all boils down
He will honor genuine, PURE motive.
He will DISHONOR hypocritical, prejudiced,
self-serving, IMPURE motive.
Only THE REAL Jesus SAVES – for all eternity.

they believe, AMONG OTHER HERESIES,
that ALL ROADS lead

thought) was “a prophet of God”.
That is WHY
we must be very careful about those who CALL THEMSELVES “Christian” or
All that glitters is not gold.
And satan HAS BEEN
A MASTER DECEIVER since the
He is an
EXTREMELY PERSUASIVE, ASTUTE
AND CAPABLE SEDUCER.
He managed to DECEIVE EVE,
WHEN SHE WAS
SINLESS, about eating the forbidden fruit,
making it SEEM “desirable”.
HOW MUCH EASIER it is for
him to trick
OUR MINDS ALREADY DECEIVED and CORRUPTED BY SIN!
One way he CONSTANTLY deceives Christians
today is by
mimicking the gifts of the Spirit.
And he will gladly give you ALL THE
“SIGNS” and SUPERNATURAL EXPERIENCES your unfaithful
little heart desires –
AS LONG AS THEY
BRING CONFUSION, and lead you AWAY FROM Christ.
In the process,
he’ll turn you into a religious harlot (anything that makes you
TO Jesus is harlotry).
At the very least, he will NEUTRALIZE
your Christian witness.
Instead of winning souls to Christ,
OBSESSED with YOURSELF and your own satanic
experience, which he DECEIVED YOU into thinking
is a “Christian” experience.
HOW, then, do we separate wonderful mystical
experiences THAT COME FROM THE HOLY SPIRIT, from those that come
foul and UNHOLY spirit?
Adam and Eve had been given A CLEAR AND
DIRECT Word from God regarding the forbidden fruit:

would actually BE HIGHLY BENEFICIAL.

And God’s people
We have learned

BORN AGAIN CHRISTIANS
MUST STOP LISTENING TO SATAN!
They’re bored, there’s no excitement in
their lives because instead of seeking and spending
time with Jesus (NO ONE is more exciting and
“entertaining” than Jesus! (Psalm 16:10), they seek “entertainment” or “deeper truths” from YouTube.
Or they seek some
religious “secret” that their whoring hearts and ears are itching to

supposedly offers those mystical experiences,
thrills and goose bumps they seek.

ages!) GAVE US HIS PRECIOUS,

SO THAT THE TRUTH WE KNOW (Jesus) can SET US
FOUR MAJOR WAYS that we can

experiences that come from satan:

IN ANY WAY – they are NOT from God, but
from the devil.
If they present theories that are
defined and taught in Scripture, THEY ARE OF
PRODUCE IDEAS and theories that ARE
MALIGNANT AND TOTALLY IRRATIONAL TO THE HUMAN
MIND – LIKE REAL WEIRD “WAY OUT THERE” stuff
– it’s A LIE from satan
– I don’t
care how “real” the images may seem.
If those ideas or theories
ROB YOU OF YOUR
INNER PEACE they are from satan.
If you find them
DISTURBING they are from satan.
If the experience leads to
HOLIER COMMUNION WITH Christ, it’s from God.
LEADS AWAY FROM Jesus, if it
DISTRACTS us FROM Jesus, if it
robs us of
TIME WITH Jesus, if it DETRACTS IN ANY WAY from
Jesus’ AWESOME, PERFECT Work of Redemption,
it’s from the ACCUSING LIAR, and NOT from God.
If it fails ANY of these 4 principles,
GET AWAY FROM IT,
ANY DOUBT IN YOUR HEART about
whether it’s from God,
Get away from that satanic snare!
Don’t think about it anymore.
Don’t look it up in your computer or smart
phone, and DON’T WATCH STUPID, LYING VIDEOS ABOUT
If thoughts about it cross your mind, REJECT THEM!
DON’T GIVE IT ANY place in your mind or heart.

Mysticism is THE EXPERIENCE (whether alleged
or real) of BECOMING ONE WITH God or the
Absolute: the belief that union with or
absorption into the Deity or the Absolute may be
attained through seeking, contemplation and

New Agers practice mysticism: so do
Muslims, so do Satanists.
Clearly such experiences
are not of
God, BUT OF SATAN.
In the Book of Revelation Jesus Himself,
speaking through His angel to the Apostle John, to
the church at Thyatira
extension, to us condemns what He calls “THE
DEPTHS OF satan”.
Evidently, some “Christians” in that
were heeding FALSE DOCTRINE, from a FALSE PROPHETESS
(who passed herself off as “Christian”) and seeking
“deep secrets” and “deeper truths”, WHICH DID NOT
COME FROM GOD, BUT FROM THE DEVIL (sound
familiar?) (Revelation 2:20-24)
Take note, all YouTubers

“deeper truths” and “prophecy secrets” on that

medium, and end up TRAPPED in satanic delusion and

And, tragically, it’s STILL taking place

STATE OF THE
DEAD – PART 2
evidence that, at physical death, the soul IS STILL
TOTALLY CONSCIOUS OF OTHER REALMS, is OVERWHELMING:
1. 1 Samuel
Then said the
woman, whom shall I bring up unto you? And he said:
bring me up Samuel.
And when the
woman SAW Samuel, she cried with a loud voice: and
the woman spoke to Saul, saying, why have you
deceived me? For you are Saul.
…And the woman
said unto Saul, I saw a god ASCENDING OUT OF THE

SAID, Why then do you ask of me, seeing the LORD has
departed from you, and has become your enemy?”
PHYSICALLY died. (1 Samuel 25:1) Yet His SOUL was
very much ALIVE and CONSCIOUS, as evidenced by the
fact he could both understand and ANSWER Saul.
PHYSICALLY DEAD, Samuel’s SOUL even PROPHESIED to
Saul what would happen to him and his kingdom. It
came true exactly as Samuel had SPOKEN FROM THE
GRAVE. (1 Samuel 28:17-19)
Samuel, who had died physically, WAS NOT
UNCONSCIOUS, nor had his soul CEASED TO EXIST.
2) 2 Samuel
of Sheol (the grave) surrounded me; the snares of
death confronted me; IN MY DISTRESS I CALLED UPON
THE LORD, AND CRIED TO MY GOD: AND HE DID HEAR MY
VOICE out of his temple, and my cry did enter into
Then the earth
shook and trembled; the foundations of heaven moved
and shook, because he was angry.”
someone CRY OUT TO GOD FROM SHEOL if they were
UNCONSCIOUS? …If their soul NO LONGER EXISTED?
How could they
KNOW THAT GOD HEARD THEM, or that God was angry?
“For you are
great and do marvelous deeds: you alone are God.
Teach me your way, Lord, that I may rely on your
faithfulness; give me an undivided heart, that I may
fear your name.
I will praise
you, Lord my God, with all my heart; I will glorify
your name forever.
great is your love toward me; you have delivered me
from the depths, from the realm of the dead.”
If a person’s
soul is UNCONSCIOUS, if it NO LONGER EXISTS in the
realm of the dead, THEN HOW could he KNOW that God
alone is God, how could he praise Him and TRUST in
being delivered from the realm of the dead?
OF DEATH surrounded me, and the PANGS OF Sheol got
hold upon me: I FOUND TROUBLE AND SORROW. Then I
CALLED UPON THE NAME OF THE LORD: O LORD, I beseech
you, deliver my soul.”
HOW can a
nonexistent soul be delivered from Sheol?
HOW can it
experience SORROW, PANGS, and TROUBLE?
HOW can it
CALL ON THE NAME OF THE LORD, if it IS UNCONSCIOUS?
“The way of
life LEADS ABOVE TO THE WISE THAT HE MAY DEPART FROM
If people in
Sheol are unconscious HOW could they KNOW the way of
life, HOW could they KNOW it leads ABOVE, and HOW
could they DEPART FROM hell beneath?
“God has made
everything beautiful in its time: also HE HAS PUT

God to put ETERNITY in people’s hearts, their hearts

BE ADDED TO IT, NOR ANYTHING TAKEN FROM IT: And God
does it so that men should fear before Him”
the human soul (Genesis 2:7), and God says that
WHATEVER He does is FOREVER.
Apparently, then, God lied because Adventists
and JW’s claim the soul God made CEASES TO EXIST.

chief ones of the earth; it has raised up from their

wilderness, and destroyed its cities; that opened
not the house of his prisoners?”
How can those
in Sheol, who have physically died, SPEAK RATIONALLY
and ASK QUESTIONS, when they ARE “UNCONSCIOUS” AND
“HAVE CEASED TO” EXIST?
Matthew 5:21-23 (Jesus speaking):
heard that it was said by them of old time, you
shall not kill; and whosoever shall kill shall be in
danger of the judgment:
But I say to
you, that whosoever is angry with his brother
without a cause shall be in danger of the judgment:

WHY would they
be “IN DANGER” of anything, when they NO LONGER

HOW can there
be “weeping and gnashing of teeth for those who
DON’T make it into God’s Kingdom, when they are
(supposedly) UNCONSCIOUS, AND THEIR SOULS AND BODIES
“NO LONGER EXIST”?
I know… maybe
Jesus LIED and Jehovah’s Witnesses and Adventists
ARE THE ONLY ONES WHO SPEAK “truth”.
“KNOW MORE” THAN Jesus.
10:28 (Jesus speaking)
“And fear not
them WHO KILL THE BODY, BUT ARE NOT ABLE TO KILL THE
SOUL: but rather fear him WHO IS ABLE TO DESTROY
BOTH SOUL AND BODY IN HELL.”
Here is CLEAR AND DIRECT REFUTATION OF the Adventist
and Jehovah’s Witnesses LIE.
JESUS SAID THE
SOUL CAN OUTLIVE THE BODY!!!
Adventists and Jehovah’s Witnesses do not
believe in the immortality of the soul and they
sustain that the soul DOES NOT LIVE APART FROM the

We know that
Elijah had been taken up to heaven alive.
We also know that Moses HAD DIED.
(Deuteronomy 34:5-6) HOW, then, could Moses appear
and SPEAK WITH Jesus, if he was unconscious and his
soul NO LONGER EXISTED?
“I am the God
of Abraham, and the God of Isaac, and the God of
Jacob? God is not the God of the dead, BUT OF THE
patriarchs had DIED PHYSICALLY, how could they be

He said "Then
He will also say to those on His left, 'Depart from
Me, accursed ones, INTO THE ETERNAL FIRE which has
been prepared for the devil and his angels”.

“cease to exist” wouldn’t the fire be UNNECESSARY
and be extinguished?

How can they SEE anyone?
How can they SPEAK and make supplications,

How can they PERCEIVE FLAMES?
As for those
liars who claim this is a “parable”: every time
Jesus used parables to teach the Gospels SPECIFY it
was a parable. The word “parable” is used 50 TIMES
IN THE GOSPELS. (Matthew 13:3; 13:10; 13:13; 13:18;
13:24; 13:31, 33; 13:34, 35, 36; 13:53; 15:15;

15:3; 18:1; 18:9; 19:11; 20:9; 20:19; 21:29; Hebrews
“parable” is NOT used in this passage. Moreover, if
this WERE a parable, then Jesus LIED because He
clearly said “there was a certain beggar NAMED
LAZARUS”, when in fact THERE WAS NO LAZARUS, since
Lazarus DIDN’T REALLY EXIST.
Once again, it
appears that Jesus (perish the thought) is A LIAR,
and ONLY Adventists and JW’s “speak the truth”.
“And he said

For this cause

“Even as Sodom

HOW could they

on them that dwell on the earth?
ANOTHER IRREFUTABLE PROOF of Adventist heresy.
These people have died, their SOULS are IN
HEAVEN, under the altar, and they’re NOT
UNCONSCIOUS. They know exactly what’s going on and
CRY OUT TO God to avenge their blood.

As we have
read again and again (In 34 Scriptures, to be
exact), in the first death, the body dies.
If the soul is
dead (unsaved) it goes to hell and still EXISTS
there and is VERY CONSCIOUS THERE.

THE POWER OF PRAISE
Praise is one of the greatest spiritual forces. It's
also a great blessing.
There's NO WAY you can praise Jesus and not be
If we praise Him from the depths of our being,
there's no way you can feel unhappy or miserable.
It's sheer joy to praise Him. And He is worthy of
our ETERNAL, SPONTANEOUS, uncontrolled praise!
Praising God can LITERALLY
CHANGE THE ATMOSPHERE around you.
It can change YOUR OUTLOOK on life.
Moreover, when we create an atmosphere of praise
around us, this spiritual force REPELS satan and
every evil spirit.
satan is ALLERGIC to praise.
He and his evil
spirits HATE it when we praise Jesus. They go nuts.
it (Psalm 8:2; 1 Samuel 16:23).
Some believe that praising God consists of attending
church services on Sunday and singing hymns. There’s
nothing wrong with that.
But the type of worship that God appreciates
God is Spirit and those
who worship Him MUST DO SO IN SPIRIT – and in truth. (John 4:23- 24)
If you REALLY want to worship God, you MUST do so
spirit to Spirit.
Jesus adds that God is actually SEEKING such
worshipers. (John 4:23)
Now, think about that for a moment: Almighty God,
the God of heaven and earth, the King of the
universe, who can do anything, create anything, for
Whom all things are possible.... who lives in
splendor beyond our imagination, actually WANTS
something from you.
God wants our praise: Our earnest, sincere,
heartfelt, spontaneous, spiritual praise. He wants
our spirits to worship him.
The praise God wants and seeks must come from our
born-again spirits. If it comes from the soul,
from your mind or emotions, if it's carnal worship,
it doesn't count. God isn't a soul. God is
When you praise God from your born-again spirit,
spirit to Spirit, you ARE in His Presence.
Psalms 16:11 says in His Presence there is

It's sheer delight
to worship God this way!
You will experience such joy, there's no way you can feel unhappy, regardless of
what's going on around you.

Praise Him for His love, His grace, His
goodness, for all His blessings, for Salvation...
For His Spirit that lives within...
There’s NO WAY that you can praise God this way and
remain “down” or depressed.
When we praise and LIFT UP Jesus,
we LIFT UP
ourselves – BECAUSE
He LIVES IN
MONDAY, APRIL 17, 2017
As a baby Christian I remember attending religious
services and hearing, again and again, about the
“hunger” there was for the Word of God.
Little did I know at the time that, years later,
Jesus would call me, personally, to quench that
hunger and thirst for His Word.
There is hunger and thirst for His Message, all
Problem is most Christians AREN'T QUENCHING IT.
is INTENSE hunger for the Word of God, but
Christians are NOT satisfying it.
I can testify now, not based on hearsay, but on
personal experience, ON PERSONAL MINISTRY, that
there is great hunger and thirst for Truth.
And Jesus is
THE ONLY TRUTH
that ever was, is, or will be. (John 14:6)
His Message called the Gospel or “Good News” is
There is NO OTHER MESSAGE ANYWHERE that can REMOTELY
compare to our Jesus’ GOOD News!
Because of Jesus death on the cross, His
resurrection and Ascension, because of His FINISHED,

AS A GIFT – TO ALL WHO WILL RECEIVE HIM (THE
Gift) and TRUST HIM.
It’s as simple, and as MARVELOUS
No “buts” about it…
Problem is that quite often
Evangelicals DO NOT PRESENT the pure, simple,
SUPERIOR and SUPREMELY INCOMPARABLE Good News of His
UNCONDITIONAL love and grace.

CARNAL, man-invented “conditions”.
Salvation is a FREE GIFT that we DO NOT DESERVE,

the first century, Matthew 23:13)
We ADD to His Word things that He NEVER SAID

you must be CONSISTENT and ALSO DENY all

you’ll be CONTRADICTING God AND CALLING Him (who inspired that

The same applies to so-called “Bible scholars” who

THE RESURRECTION AND THE LIFE
"Jesus said to him: I AM THE RESURRECTION AND THE LIFE; he
that believes in me, THOUGH HE WERE DEAD, YET SHALL
HE LIVE" (John 11:25).
Millions of tourists travel to Israel each year to see...
They don't go there to see some celebrity, or some impressive
monument, or even some natural phenomenon.
They go to see... NOTHING.
An open tomb,
WITH NO ONE inside.
Having been among those millions of tourists I can assure you
that we are not crazy.
And if we are it is only because we're MADLY in love with Jesus.
ALL so-called religious leaders are dead:
If you go to Sri Lanka, you can visit the tomb where Buddha's
If you go to Mecca, you can visit the tomb with the DEAD REMAINS
of Mohammed, the inventor and founder of Islam.
Thank God that Jesus Christ
is NOT a religious leader.
Repeat: Thank God that Jesus Christ is NOT a religious leader.
If He were, He would be dead like all the others because that is
precisely what religion breeds: death.
Jesus IS God.
Jesus IS The Life and Resurrection.
He DIDN'T BRING RELIGION: He brought love, faith and
And although he was willing to do what NO ONE ELSE wanted to do
-- OR COULD do --

price of our redemption Himself...
Neither SIN, nor SATAN, nor DEATH COULD hold Him.
For Christ is INVINCIBLE.
Jesus Christ -- and Jesus ONLY -- is THE RESURRECTION AND THE
There is Salvation in NO ONE ELSE.
There is NO OTHER NAME - apart from Jesus - IN WHICH CAN BE SAVED
If you've never given your heart to Jesus,
I invite you to do it NOW.
Any other "way"
you follow will lead to death.
IF YOU WANT TO OVERCOME death and have ETERNAL LIFE - RIGHT NOW -
Jesus IS THE ONLY ONE who offers it because He is
THE ONLY ONE WHO LIVES FOREVER.
That is WHY Christ's tomb lies ETERNALLY empty.
Because HE CAME OUT OF IT ALIVE:
"I AM He that lives, and was dead;
and LOOK, I am ALIVE FOREVERMORE, amen. AND I HAVE THE
KEYS OF DEATH AND HELL".
Do you want your tomb FULL OF DEAD BONES like Buddha and
Or do you want your tomb to be EMPTY, like Christ's?

Hell's gates HAD PREVAILED against God's people up
to the time of His Resurrection.
But because our Jesus rose triumphantly

CROSS OR CRUCIFIX
This is something I’ve been hearing FOR
YEARS and YEARS, and should have addressed long ago.
For those who may not know the
difference, A CROSS is just A PLAIN cross.
A CRUCIFIX is a cross with the figure
of Jesus nailed to it.
While most “protestants” and Evangelicals
favor the plain cross, Catholics, Eastern Orthodox,
Anglicans, Lutherans, and
Methodists generally use the crucifix.
For years, I’ve been hearing the LAME and
FALSE accusation that Catholics use the crucifix
because they believe that Jesus is still dead and
hanging from the cross.
Being raised Roman Catholic I can
TESTIFY – FROM PERSONAL EXPERIENCE – that
that IS A BLATANT LIE.
As steeped in religion, tradition, and
man-invented rituals as we were,
KNOWING from age 6
(perhaps a bit earlier) that Jesus died
for our sins
and ROSE FROM THE DEAD.
I NEVER heard any priest, nun, or Roman
Catholic person say,
or even HINT,
that Jesus is still nailed to the cross.
I NEVER heard any of them DENY Christ’s
I was taught Catechism at age 6 and did
First Communion at age 7.
Catechism CLEARLY TAUGHT that Jesus
had RISEN FROM THE DEAD, is God, and IS ALIVE.
That is why Roman Catholics, along with
most other Christians, CELEBRATE CHRIST’S
My biggest problems with Catholicism have
that it DID NOT TEACH the born-again experience, at
least not when I was growing up, and that it DID
NOT teach the Bible or encourage its study.
Fortunately, many Catholic congregations
today TEACH BOTH.
As far as the cross and crucifix are
DON’T HAVE A PROBLEM WITH EITHER ONE.
The plain cross reminds us of Jesus’
Of His CRUSHING VICTORY over satan, sin and death.
The crucifix reminds us
UNSPEAKABLE SUFFERING HE ENDURED FOR OUR SAKE, and
the INCALCULABLE PRICE HE PAID to redeem us.
Grow up, Christians!
And stop tearing each other apart over such
what we WEAR AROUND OUR NECKS, BUT
JESUS IN OUR HEARTS THAT SAVES US!

is that Jesus was crucified on a Friday and rose
from the dead on Sunday.
This is based on the Gospels' statement that, when
His body was taken down from the cross,
the Sabbath was approaching.
Hence, religionists reason,
it must have been Friday (John 19:31).
A closer look at
the Scriptures reveals something else.
I was in my mid-20s before I realized that
Jesus is Jewish.
Being raised Roman Catholic, and having been
exposed to Lutheranism and 7th Day
NOT ONCE did I hear
ANYONE mention Jesus’
In all those years I didn’t hear it from the
pulpit, didn’t learn it in either Sabbatical School
or Sunday school:
Didn’t read it in any Catechism or religious
book, didn’t hear any priest, pastor or nun talk
And even though we knew the Christmas story,
Bethlehem is mentioned, somehow
connection to His Jewishness was not made.
Jesus, Mary, Joseph, the shepherds, the wise
men, had all been religiously sanitized to conform
to westernized, religiously appropriate characters.
Just goes to show
TO WHAT LENGTHS anti-Semitism will go to cover up Truth and distort
it into bigoted dogma.
However, as I’ll prove in a minute,
when it suits
their agenda, religion turns SUPER-Jewish.
When the spiritually blind Pharisees asked for a
"sign", Jesus stated that
THE ONLY SIGN
given to that generation would be that of the
prophet Jonas: as Jonas had
NIGHTS in the belly of
the whale, so the Son of Man would remain
AND THREE NIGHTS
in the belly of the earth (Jonah 1:17; Matthew
I have read and heard all the convoluted
RELIGIOUS theories about how "in Hebrew thinking"
JUST PART OF A DAY is reckoned as a day.
When it suits its hypocritical agenda,
SUDDENLY TURNS MORE “JEWISH” THAN JEWS THEMSELVES!
I might buy that
LAME argument if Jesus had only said He would be
"three days" in the belly of the earth.
However, Jesus was
VERY SPECIFIC in His
statement: not simply three days, but THREE DAYS
AND THREE NIGHTS.

The message blessed me and I hope it blesses
all of you.
THE CROSS IN OUR BODIES
This is a
pretty neat story and an interesting thing that few
of us know.
written by A DOCTOR:
A couple of
days ago I was running (I use that term very
loosely) on my treadmill, watching a DVD sermon by
Louie Giglio... And I was BLOWN AWAY! I want to
share what I learned.
was talking about how inconceivably BIG our God
is... How He spoke the universe into being... Etc.,
Then He went
on to speak of how this universe-creating God ALSO
knitted our human bodies together with amazing
detail and wonder.
At this point
I am LOVING it (fascinating from a medical
standpoint, you know).
And I was
remembering how I was constantly amazed during
medical school as I learned more and more about
God's handiwork. I remember so many times thinking:
ANYONE deny that a Creator did all of this?'
The God, who
created all this, also has the power to HOLD IT ALL
TOGETHER when things seem to be falling apart...how
our loving Creator is also our sustainer.
And then I
lost my breath. And it wasn't because I was running
my treadmill, either!!!
BECAUSE HE STARTED TALKING ABOUT LAMININ.
I knew about
laminin... Here is how Wikipedia describes them:
'Laminins are A FAMILY OF PROTEINS THAT ARE AN
INTEGRAL PART OF THE STRUCTURAL SCAFFOLDING OF
BASEMENT MEMBRANES IN ALMOST EVERY ANIMAL TISSUE'
WHAT HOLD US TOGETHER...
They are cell
adhesion molecules. They are what holds one cell of
our bodies to the next cell. WITHOUT THEM, WE WOULD
LITERALLY FALL APART.
I knew all
this already. But WHAT I DIDN'T KNOW is what they
But now I do.
And I have thought about it a thousand times
Here is what
the structure of laminin looks like... AND THIS IS
NOT a 'Christian portrayal' of it.... If you look up
laminin in any scientific/medical piece of
literature, THIS IS WHAT YOU WILL SEE...
Now tell me
that our God is not the coolest!!!
THE GLUE THAT
HOLDS US TOGETHER.... ALL of us... is IN THE SHAPE
OF THE CROSS!
Colossians 1:17 comes to mind.
He is before
all things, and in Him ALL things HOLD TOGETHER.'
YEARS BEFORE THE WORLD KNEW ANYTHING ABOUT LAMININ,
Paul penned those words.
And now we
see that, from a very LITERAL standpoint, we are
held together... one cell to another.... BY THE
never in a quadrillion years convince me that is
anything other than the mark of a Creator who knew
EXACTLY what laminin 'glue' would look like!!

A lot of people read Revelation 8:3 and ASSUME that
it refers to Yom Kippur.
The reason behind their assumption is the mention
with the prayers of the saints.
It is true that incense was offered on Yom Kippur,
thrice to be exact: twice on the altar of incense,
and once in the Holy of Holies.
However, Yom Kippur is
ONLY TIME incense was offered.
In the tabernacle and, later, in the first and
OFFERED EVERY DAY TWICE A DAY
(evening and morning) ALONG WITH THE DAILY
sacrifices. (Exodus 30:7-8)
It was also burned in the Temples continuously, as a
“sweet smelling offering” to the Lord.
They even had A SPECIAL FORMULA for the incense,
prescribed by God, which could only be used in the
tabernacle and temples.
The incense was considered holy (set apart) and
anyone using it for their own pleasure was to be put
to death under the Sinai Law (Exodus 30:34-38)
It is wrong, therefore, to assume that
the mention of incense automatically means it’s Yom
couldn’t possibly indicate Yom Kippur, since it
IN THE SPRING (Aviv 10-11), RIGHT AFTER the
Rapture, and right before God sends His trumpet
judgments on unsaved, unrepentant humans.
the High Priest that offers
the incense, NOT AN ANGEL.
Also, the incense in Revelation 8:3 is offered
prayers of the saints.
The clear inference is that the saints are
interceding for those left on earth and pleading for
mercy before the judgments are sent.
On Yom Kippur, it’s a different story:
Priest makes offerings first for himself, then for
So, these are two
ENTIRELY DIFFERENT settings.
If you want to see Yom Kippur in the Book of
Revelation, it’s found in Revelation 11:19, just
prior to the Second Coming of Christ:
the temple of God was opened in heaven,
WAS SEEN IN HIS TEMPLE THE ARK OF HIS COVENANT:
and there were lightnings, and voices, and
thunderings, and an earthquake, and great hail.”
And again in Revelation 15:5-8 (describing the same
“And after that I looked, and, behold,
THE TEMPLE OF THE TABERNACLE OF THE TESTIMONY IN
HEAVEN WAS OPENED:
And the seven angels came out of the temple, having
the seven plagues, clothed in pure and white linen,
and having their breasts girded with golden sashes.
And one of the four living creatures gave unto the
seven angels seven golden bowls full of the wrath of
God, who lives forever and ever.
TEMPLE WAS FILLED WITH SMOKE FROM THE GLORY OF GOD,
AND FROM HIS POWER; AND NO MAN WAS ABLE TO
ENTER INTO THE TEMPLE, till the seven
plagues of the seven angels were fulfilled.”
(Compare to 1 Kings 8:2-10)
Immediately after that, and in rapid sequence, the
most severe 7-bowl judgments take place, followed by
Armageddon, followed by the Second Coming of our

Three of the most egregious deceptions I have

which states “Let the LORD be magnified, which hath
pleasure in the prosperity of his servant.”

advertised on TV,
you’ll look EXACTLY LIKE the model in the commercial.
Someone recently wrote me that the Second
Coming takes place on Yom Kippur at 3:00 P.M. based
on Revelation 8:3. (I presume, although he didn’t
specify, Israel time)
This person claims that this passage talks about Yom

it’s verse 3, that MUST

about is advancing their own, self-serving, godless
By the way, Revelation 8:3 has ZERO to do with

When sharing the Gospel with heretics, they often
mock the true Christian faith.
They CANNOT refute the Gospel itself, but they
ridicule its alleged representatives for talking
constantly about money and giving false assurances
of prosperity in exchange for donations.
Sadly, although heretics are dead wrong about
Salvation, and wrong about nearly everything else,
RIGHT about this one thing.
Unfortunately, where money is concerned,
HAVE A POINT.
After all, if Evangelicals LIE about money, LIE
about prosperity, LIE about what God says about
DRIVEN BY GREED, and MISAPPLY THE WORD OF GOD to
finances, twisting the Scriptures for their own
WHY would they TELL THE TRUTH about ANYTHING ELSE?
HOW DO THEY
that we’re NOT also lying
Telling them that we do not solicit or receive
donations doesn’t help at all.
Even if we’ve never taken a dime, born-again or
evangelical believers are all lumped together and
classified as greedy frauds, BY ASSOCIATION.
The unsaved, both religious and non-religious,
perceive us as hypocrites who care nothing about
salvation, but only about fattening our bank
accounts, and living extravagantly at the expense of
dumb, swindled followers.
The WORST part about the “prosperity gospel” is not
that it deceives and defrauds needy people of their
It’s not that it TAKES ADVANTAGE of ignorant, Bible
illiterate brothers and sisters.
It’s NOT that it EXPLOITS the poor, the sick, and

disillusioned when those false promises DON’T

THE LOVE OF MONEY
There’s a “world changing” charlatan on Kristian TV
who loves to say that HE USED TO THINK that “money
is the root of all evil”.
Then he tries to be funny by asking in an affected
voice: “if it’s so evil why does everyone want it?”
I’m not sure I follow his “logic” or lack thereof:
One might as well ask “if fornication is evil, why
does everyone want to commit it”?
For the same reason most humans covet money in
excess: BECAUSE WE’RE FALLEN, SINFUL MORTALS!
Then he claims that it finally dawned on him that
it’s NOT money that’s evil but THE LOVE OF money
that’s the root of all evil.
That much is true. (1 Timothy 6:10)
The clear insinuation is THAT HE
DOESN’T love money:
He just gets money (from stupid, deceived
Christians) because he has SO MUCH FAITH (obviously,
you and I DON’T) and, as a result of his gigantic
faith, he gets great wealth from religious
He and his “word of faith” cronies DON’T love money?
DO THEY TALK ABOUT MONEY CONSTANTLY 24/7, and about
What did Jesus say about it?
“OUT OF THE ABUNDANCE OF THE HEART
the MOUTH SPEAKS.”
Since ALL they ever talk about is money, then,
ACCORDING TO JESUS, money is WHAT THEY
HAVE IN THEIR HEARTS.
THEY DO LOVE MONEY!!!
In fact they
become THEIR GOD.
And only a complete idiot would believe otherwise.
They talk about money FAR MORE than they talk about
Jesus CLEARLY WARNED His Apostles that they COULD
NOT serve two masters:
That they COULD NOT serve God AND money!
But, of course, “word of faith” scam artists
BETTER THAN Jesus.
have MORE FAITH than Jesus or any of His
… Since neither Jesus, nor the 12, EVER got to live
in mansions, drive around in fancy chariots, or
become REMOTELY wealthy – as all the “word of faith”
And they DID NOT become that way because they have
so much faith, or through their “confession”.
They got that way
They got that way
BY LYING TO THE DUMB SHEEP.
Jesus said NO ONE could serve both God and money:
PROVES Jesus is NOT whom they serve.

IN THE BEGINNING?
Someone recently wrote me that “God GAVE the Sabbath
since the beginning”.
Here’s a perfect example of why it’s SO IMPORTANT TO
PAY CAREFUL ATTENTION TO, and KNOW, what the Bible
... Instead of WHAT SOMEONE SAYS that “it says”.
And instead of WHAT WE THINK it says.
The person in question LIED.
God DID NOT give the Sabbath since “the beginning”.
NO ONE OBSERVED the 24 hour Sabbath “since the
beginning”, and if you can find ONE verse – in the
ENTIRE BIBLE – that says it, I’ll not only retract
my statement, I will apologize for a solid year.
C’mon, Seventh Day Adventists, Church of God,
Judaizers, and other Sabbatarians! This is your
chance to “make your case” for YOUR FALSE, ACCURSED
religions. (Galatians 1:8)
Genesis 2:3 DOESN’T SAY THAT.
Genesis 2:3 says that God blessed and “sanctified”
(set apart) the Seventh Day, which IS NOT a 24 hour
The 7th Day which He sanctified DOES NOT have
“evening” or “morning”.
Hence, it is NOT a 24-hour day.
Also Genesis 2:3 DOES NOT COMMAND ANYONE to observe
Again: Genesis 2:3 DOES NOT TELL ANYONE to observe
… Let alone the TEMPORARY 24-hour Sabbath that only
gives TEMPORARY rest, which is A MERE SHADOW OF the
ETERNAL Sabbath, which gives ETERNAL rest
(Colossians 2:16-17; Matthew 11:28)
NO ONE observed the 24-hour Sabbath UNTIL SOME 2,500
And when observing the 24-hour Sabbath was given as
a “commandment” 2,500 YEARS LATER, that
“commandment” was given ONLY TO NATURAL ISRAELITES
Once again: the 4th commandment to observe the
24-hour Sabbath WAS GIVEN ONLY to NATURAL
ISRAELITES, and ONLY 2,500 YEARS AFTER “the
It was NEVER given to Christians.
There wasn’t A SINGLE Christian around.
There ISN’T ONE verse in the entire New Testament
that tells CHRISTIANS to observe the 24-hour
Please DO NOT BOTHER to cite John 14:15 or 1 John
5:3, because NEITHER VERSE mentions the Sabbath OR
the 10 Commandments.
Both verses refer to THE LOVE COMMANDMENTS given by
Jesus, as THE GREATEST COMMANDMENTS. (Matthew
And the two that Jesus declared to be THE GREATEST
COMMANDMENTS were NOT even part of the 10.
Moreover, there are SEVERAL VERSES IN THE NEW
TESTAMENT WHICH SPECIFICALLY TELL CHRISTIANS NOT TO
observe the 24-hour Sabbath:
1. The Jewish Apostles writing to gentile
Christians: "…it seemed good to the Holy Spirit, and
to us, TO LAY UPON YOU NO GREATER BURDEN THAN THESE
That you abstain from anything offered to idols, and
from blood, and from things strangled, and from
fornication: from which if you keep yourselves, you
shall do well. Farewell.” (Acts 15:28-29)
2. “One man esteems one day above another: ANOTHER
ESTEEMS EVERY DAY ALIKE. Let every man be fully
persuaded in his own mind.” (Romans 14:6)
3. “LET NO MAN THEREFORE JUDGE YOU in food, or in
drink, or IN RESPECT OF a holy day, or of the new
moon, OR OF THE SABBATH DAYS: Which ARE A SHADOW OF
THINGS TO COME; but the body (in context, THE REAL
Sabbath that casts the shadow) is Christ.”
4. Furthermore, Jesus Himself DIDN’T OBSERVE the
24-hour Sabbath. (John 5:18)
These are UNDISPUTED, IRREFUTABLE, BIBLICAL FACTS.
Therefore, those who try to ingratiate themselves
with God by being “more obedient” than anyone else
because they claim to keep a TEMPORARY (24-hour)
SHADOW called Saturday – are self-righteous
hypocrites, who PRETEND TO BE “holier” than Jesus.
They need to FALL ON THEIR FACES, REPENT,
acknowledge their sin, AND THEIR UTTER HELPLESSNESS
TO SAVE THEMSELVES, receive Jesus into their hearts,
and throw themselves TOTALLY at the mercy of His
amazing Love and amazing Grace. (Acts 4:11-12)
They need TO TRUST JESUS COMPLETELY FOR SALVATION,
instead of TRUSTING their ACCURSED man-invented or
