IS THE LAW FOR EVERYONE?
There are certain Jewish groups and “Christian”
denominations that would have us believe that the Law
(Torah) was meant for the whole world.
Nothing could be farther from the Truth.
Why would the Law be given to the whole world when it
doesn’t save, but rather condemns?
Why would it be given to the whole world when it REVIVES
sin instead of erasing it?
Why would the Law be given to the whole world, WHEN IT MADE
NO ONE JUST?
Why would the Law be given to the whole world when it is
IMPERFECT and, therefore, MAKES NOTHING PERFECT?
Why would the Law be given to the whole world, WHEN WE HAVE
THE BLOOD OF JESUS?
Now let’s look at BIBLICAL FACTS:
When God gave the Law some 3,500 years ago, there were
Egyptians, Libyans, Ethiopians, Syrians, Assyrians,
Chaldeans, Elamites, Moabites, Edomites, Ammonites,
Amalekites, Canaanites, Persians, Sabeans, and Greeks,
Yet God didn’t give the Law TO ANY OF THEM.
God, in fact, waited until the Israelites were IN THE
MIDDLE OF THE DESERT, ISOLATED from all the other nations,
to give them the Law at Sinai (Exodus 20:2)
If He intended the Law for everyone, He sure missed A
GOLDEN OPPORTUNITY to tell the Egyptians:
“hey, now that I’ve proven to be God, now that I
sent you all those plagues and killed all your firstborn,
while Israelites went unscathed, now that I FORCED YOU to
let them go… this will be your laws, and how I expect you
But He DIDN’T SAY THAT.
In fact, by the first century, when Jesus walked the earth,
Israelites had lived under the Law for 1,500 years, and THE
ONLY ONES WHO LIVED UNDER IT were Jews. (Acts 10:44-48;
15:1-5, 8-11, 23-29)
If the Law WERE for everybody, then obviously God would
have told the Israelites to SPREAD the LAW to all other
But you can’t find ONE VERSE -- in the whole Bible
-- that says such thing.
Contrast that with the New Testament’s Great Commission: “GO
INTO THE ENTIRE WORLD and PREACH THE GOSPEL” (Matthew
28:19-20; Mark 16:15-16: Luke 24:45-49; Acts 1:6-8)
The Law condemns, Jesus saves. (Romans 7:8; Acts 4:12)
The Law REMINDS US of sin, Jesus Blood REMOVES SIN, AND
FORGETS SIN (Hebrews 8:12; 10:3)
The Law is IMPERFECT, Jesus is PERFECT (Matthew 22:37-40; 1
John 4:16, 18)
The Law makes no one perfect, Jesus does. (Hebrews 7:19;
By the works of the Law NO ONE is justified, but by Jesus’
Blood WE ARE. (Galatians 2:16; 2 Corinthians 5:21)
The law is a TEMPORARY SHADOW, Jesus is Eternal.
(Hebrews 10:1; Psalm 90:2)
Jesus is THE SUPREME, PERFECT, and ETERNAL LAW!
(Psalm 19:7; James 1:25; 1 John 4:18)
Who needs the Law, WHEN THEY HAVE JESUS?

WAS THE WORLD CREATED?
There are myriad theories that try to pin
down the Rapture and Second Coming of Christ based on the
year that God created the world.
What all these theories have in common is
THEY ARE ALL WRONG.
NO ONE but God knows when He created the world.
The most learned and diligent scholars
have only been able to come up with CALCULATIONS, that
MAY BE APPROXIMATE, but not totally accurate.
And by no means is there consensus among
the scholars as to the calculations themselves, or even on
the calculated year when it all started.
So I have to chuckle when someone with
minimal knowledge of Scripture, and even less knowledge
about Bible prophecy, comes up with a complicated method
of charts and equations "ascertaining" THE PRECISE YEAR
of either the Rapture, the Second Coming, or both, and
basing their absurd conclusions on Anno Mundi,
PRETENDING TO KNOW the EXACT YEAR in which the world was
The rabbinic calendar is supposed to be
based on the "creation of the world".
According to it, this is year 5775 from
The rabbinic calendar is wrong in ways
too numerous to mention.
It is based on CALCULATIONS, not
Its errors include, by their own
admission, an UNCERTAIN NUMBER OF "missing" years.
And, Truth be told, THE ONLY REASON
they revised their calendar in the first century, and made
it official in 160 A.D. -- to (supposedly) "coincide
with the Creation of the world" -- is because their
religious leaders WANTED TO OBSCURE Jesus' awesome
fulfillment of Daniel 9-24-27.
The "creation of the world" was merely
a convenient excuse for INTENTIONALLY CHANGING THEIR
CALENDAR to reflect their religious bias and conceal the
In 1178 A.D. Maimonides gave his blessing
to the "new" calendar and new reckoning of years, INVENTED
IN 160 A.D, which is widely used and accepted among Jews to
Of course, THAT SAME CALENDAR
establishes its "new year" as Tishri 1, instead of the
Torah-given day of Aviv 1 (Exodus 12:2).
THAT SAME CALENDAR also erroneously
calls Tishri 1 "Rosh Hashanah", instead of its proper
Torah-given name of Yom Teruah.
When people ADMIT THERE'S A WHOLE
BUNCH OF "MISSING YEARS" from their calendar, DON'T KNOW
THEIR OWN NEW YEAR - which has been specified in the
Torah for 3,500 years - and CALL THE WRONG NEW YEAR BY
THE WRONG NAME to boot... THEY'RE IN NO POSITION to tell
anyone THE TRUE DATE WHEN God created the world.
And if JEWS don't know, NO ONE else
knows, including you and me.
So much for the spreaders of prophetic
fantasies who try to impress others with their
super-complex and fallacious calculations.
If your starting point is SUSPECT at
best, and FALSE at worst, there's NO WAY your calculations
and THERE'S NO WAY you can have the right date... FOR

AGE OF THE
NO ONE can PROVE that the universe is 14 billion years old
or that the earth is 4.5 billion years old, as posited by
most scientists today.
Those are GUESSTIMATES.
These are BIASED guesstimates from people who are ADAMANT
about even CONSIDERING the possibility of a Creator.
As remote as that idea may seem TO THEIR LIMITED, FINITE
HUMAN MINDS, they CAN'T BE SURE OF ANYTHING if they
haven't seriously considered every possible alternative to
their theory, INCLUDING the idea of a Supreme Creator.
Since NO ONE has ever seen a zebra turn into a horse, let
alone a monkey turn into a human, secular scientists need
"BILLIONS AND BILLIONS" of years to make their pet
theory of evolution seem plausible.
NO ONE really knows
how old the universe or this planet are.
Having said that, the earth is OLDER than the
approximate 6,000 years since ITS RECREATION in Genesis
If you read the Genesis 1 text closely:
"In the beginning
God created the heaven and the earth"... (Genesis 1:1)
We are not told WHEN that "beginning" was.
Some unknown period of time must have lapsed, and MAJOR
events must have taken place, between the point of earth's
creation in Genesis 1:1 and Genesis 1:2.
In verse 2 we find the earth was "formless and EMPTY" in
a chaotic state (tohu wabohu), COVERED WITH
WATER and engulfed in DARKNESS.
God is not the author of confusion (1 Corinthians 14:33).
He is Light and in Him is NO DARKNESS at all (1 John
Therefore, when He created the earth IT MUST HAVE BEEN
ORDERLY AND THERE MUST HAVE BEEN LIGHT.
This is reinforced by the fact that, in verse 3, THE
FIRST THING He does is restore light to the earth.
In the verses that follow, He proceeds to re-order and
re-create the devastated earth:
1.Collect the water in certain places, and allow the dry
land to appear (Genesis 1:6-10).
2. Restore vegetation (Genesis 1:11-13).
3. Establish the ordinances of sun, moon and stars in the
sky (Genesis 1:14).
4. Re-supply the waters with fish and other aquatic life
5. Put all kinds of birds in the air, and
6. Replenish livestock (Genesis 1:24).
7. Last, but not least, He created man (Genesis 1:26-28).
This begs the question: WHAT HAPPENED between the time
He created the heavens (expansion, universe) and the earth
in verse 1, and the chaotic state of the earth in verse 2?
Answer: the satanic rebellion.
It was Lucifer's rebellion that caused God (in INNER space)
to create the universe (OUTER space), in a burst of
divine anger (Big Bang), by EJECTING satan (evil) from
There were humanoid beings on this planet prior to Adam and
So-called Neanderthal skeletal remains have been discovered
Those beings rebelled against God, along with satan.
God sent the first flood (prior to Noah's) and
they all perished.
That is why in Genesis 1:2 we find the earth COVERED
Their souls were sent to the abyss, WHERE THEY ARE TODAY
In the Bible the disembodied spirits and souls of those
pre-Adamic beings are known as "demons"
So WHEN did God create the universe?
WHEN did He create the earth?
Some have suggested 10,000-12,000 years ago. That makes a
lot of sense, since God DOESN'T NEED "billions and
billions" of years to accomplish ANY thing.
Secular scientists need billions of years, God doesn't.
It must have been AT LEAST 7,000-8,000 years ago. Emphasis
on "AT LEAST".
But I DON'T REALLY KNOW and NO ONE - apart from God
Himself - knows.
Bottom line: the earth is much older than the approximate
6,000 years since man (Adam) was put here.
Whether that "much older" age is 500 billion years, 14
billion, 100,000, or 10,000 years... NO ONE but God

WHO ELSE ISN'T BUYING IT:
Do you think, "nice Christians", that God

Do you think for a moment that

What's even sadder is that if you really

The reason YOU ACT, the only reason you

you're trying to OVERCOMPENSATE for the NON-MANIFESTATION

I need to say that again: THE ONLY REASON
you ACT and “FAKE IT” is because you’re OVERCOMPENSATING
for the LACK OF manifestation of Christ in your life.

Instead of stepping aside and
allowing Jesus to BE and MANIFEST through us, religion has
taught us that

NO ONE but your
little "social club" is buying it.
If the REAL Jesus were manifesting
YOU WOULDN'T HAVE TO FAKE IT.
Seek the INNER Jesus
with ALL your heart,

When He does, the world will see who you

I got 7 words for all "NICE Christians":
Drop the ACT,

As I watched President Trump’s historic trip to Saudi
Arabia, Israel, and Rome, I found myself praising Jesus
repeatedly for giving us such strong, courageous, clear
thinking, articulate LEADER.
As President Trump addressed a meeting of Muslim leaders,
from OVER 50 different Islamic nations, he boldly pointed
the finger at Islamist terrorists and told the Muslim
leaders assembled to “drive them out”:
“DRIVE THEM OUT of your places of
DRIVE THEM OUT of your communities.
DRIVE THEM OUT of your holy land, and
DRIVE THEM OUT OF THIS EARTH.”
He brilliantly isolated Iran and its puppet Syria by
unifying virtually the entire rest of the Muslim world
against them and their villainous acts.
What refreshing contrast to the weak, apologetic, spineless
rhetoric we heard from U.S. officials in the past 8 years!
Sadly, during President Trump’s visit to Israel we heard of
STILL ANOTHER horrific act of terror in the UK, this time
in Manchester, and targeting mostly children and teens.
When President Trump visited Israel and met with Prime
Minister Netanyahu and “Palestinian” President Abbas, the
Prime Minister pointed out the need for the “Palestinian”
government to STOP incentivizing and REWARDING terrorism by
GIVING A MONETARY PRIZE to the families of so-called
“martyrs” who are willing to blow themselves up just so
they can take Jewish men, women and children out in the
I’ve no doubt that President Trump privately raised that
very issue with Abbas.
And then it dawned on me…
As good a job as our President is doing, both at home and
in foreign relations, little if anything will change in the
Islam is THE ONLY MAJOR RELIGION that actively REWARDS EVIL.
ONLY JESUS is Creator, Salvation and Eternal Life. However,
all major religions
at least promise good things TO THOSE WHO DO GOOD DEEDS.
No other religion, whether it’s Judaism, Buddhism, Taoism,
Hinduism or organized Christianism
glorifies evil by OFFERING RECOMPENSE – both in
this life and in
the AFTERLIFE – to those who carry out acts of
That dubious distinction is uniquely Islamic.
This PROVES that
Islam is UTTERLY
SATANIC and INHERENTLY evil.
There are NO “72 black eyed virgins” waiting to satisfy
terrorists’ sexual desires in the afterlife.
There isn’t even ONE virgin.
There is ETERNAL
DAMNATION unless they repent of their hatred, and
receive Jesus Christ into their hearts as ONLY God and ONLY

much as I appreciate his vision and leadership, I’m under
no illusion that things will change substantively in the

President Trump will broker some FRAGILE and TEMPORARY
“peace” between Israel and Palestinian Arabs. (1
If he succeeds, it will be short-lived.

3˝ year tribulation to wipe Islamic terror, Islam, and its
satanic lies, off the face of the earth.

RISE & SHINE
“ARISE, SHINE; FOR YOUR LIGHT HAS COME, and THE GLORY OF
THE LORD HAS RISEN UPON YOU.
For, behold, the darkness shall cover the earth, and
gross darkness the people: but the LORD shall arise
upon you, and HIS GLORY SHALL BE SEEN UPON YOU.
And the Gentiles SHALL COME TO YOUR LIGHT, AND KINGS TO THE
BRIGHTNESS OF YOUR RISING.”
“YOU ARE THE LIGHT OF THE WORLD. A city on a hill CANNOT BE
HIDDEN. Neither do people LIGHT A LAMP and hide it under a
basket. Instead, they set it on a lamp stand, and IT GIVES
LIGHT TO EVERYONE”… (Matthew 5:14-15)
The passage from Isaiah refers to New Jerusalem.
And WHO INHABITS New Jerusalem? Christ and His People!
We are ALL CITIZENS OF New Jerusalem.
(Philippians 3:20; Hebrews 12:22-24)
We are THE PEOPLE OF GOD.
As such, at a time when the world around us is covered in
darkness, we’re supposed to ARISE AND SHINE and BE THE
LIGHT OF THIS WORLD that Jesus said WE ARE.
The world should LOOK TO US for answers.
It should LOOK TO US for Wisdom and guidance.
It should RELY ON US for protection that goes beyond
conventional weapons, and defense systems.
It should LOOK TO US to overcome challenges.
We should be able to LEAD THE WAY to victory.
They should be able to SEE JESUS’ LOVE and JESUS’ POWER in
We’re supposed to get THE DEVIL OFF THEIR BACKS, instead of
whining about how much he’s been on ours.
What we’re NOT supposed to do is park our behinds on a pew,

forgotten before we hit the door, and head to the nearest
What we’re NOT supposed to do is HIDE OUR LIGHT under a
bushel basket, like those religious fortresses we’ve built
FOR OUR GLORY, and whine about how “persecuted” we are.
The end time Church has been afforded conveniences and
privileges about which other generations of believers could
This is OUR MOMENT.
It’s our time TO SHINE.
LET’S NOT WASTE IT.
The world should be able TO SEE THE FULLNESS OF Christ, and
His glory – IN US!

“He that digs a pit shall fall into it; and

One of parents’ unenviable jobs is to guide children IN THE
RIGHT PATH.: To give them the moral guidance and character
building conviction TO STAND ON THEIR OWN and MAKE IT in
It’s NO DIFFERENT
FOR SPIRITUAL PARENTS.
What I am about to say may SEEM harsh.
it is GIVEN with LOVE.
… Because I want you TO STAND ON YOUR OWN SPIRITUAL FEET,
AND BE VICTORIOUS.
We just did several teachings on how to confront and
overcome attacks from the devil.
We also did a series late last year
INSTRUCTIONS on how to overcome, entitled “STEPS TO
VICTORY” that has been permanently posted on this website,
above this daily message, and
AVAILABLE FOR READING AND DOWNLOAD FREE OF CHARGE.
The result, in both instances, has been getting hit with a
flurry of emails requesting prayer because some of you are
under attack from satan.
Many of you ARE
ENTIRELY MISSING THE POINT!
I’ll pray. I’ll get the devil off your back
But what are you
going to do NEXT TIME?
…And the next, and the next?
Even SINLESS Jesus
was given respite by the devil ONLY FOR A SEASON.
The point is not to come crying to me and ask me to get the
devil off your back every time you face difficult
That will ONLY provide SHORT-TERM relief.
The point of these messages is for you
yourselves, do some deep soul searching, take stock of your
spiritual, emotional and MENTAL life, and CLOSE ALL THE
DOORS, and all the breaches in the wall, by which satan may
gain access to your life.
And KEEP THEM closed.
It’s no good for you to shut those doors and breaches now,
only to re-open them in a couple weeks or months.
I gave some
VERY SPECIFIC areas
in which, if you delve, and/or dwell, you will GET ATTACKED
by the devil.
You need to TAKE SOME TIME
to seriously analyze and evaluate those areas.
And TO MAKE SOME CHANGES – PERMANENTLY!
The other point of these messages is
to provide you WITH
SPIRITUAL FIRE POWER
SO YOU CAN GET
satan OFF YOUR BACK, AND KIEEP HIM OFF!
Here’s what I DIDN’T
I didn’t hear from ONE person –
NOT ONE – that said something along the lines of:
“Gee, Martel, you’ve made me realize that I’m not a
helpless victim that the devil can attack at will. I bear most of the
responsibility in this.
And it’s UP TO ME to make sure that my
spiritual, emotional and mental life is in line with God’s
that I DO NOT GIVE
PLACE TO THE DEVIL.
IT’S UP TO ME
TO KEEP MY HEART and MIND FREE of FEAR, HATRED and
It’s UP TO ME
to keep my life organized and chaos free.
It’s UP TO ME
to focus on Jesus and stay away from false doctrine, the
occult, porn, drugs, and sexual immorality”.
It’s UP TO ME
to feed and strengthen my spirit with His Word, and use THE
INNER CHRIST to OVERCOME.
I did NOT hear from
ONE soul -- among THE THOUSANDS WORLDWIDE who read these
daily messages -- that EVEN REMOTELY spoke along these
THAT, I gotta tell you,
was DEEPLY disappointing.
What am I doing, speaking TO A WALL?
All glory to Jesus
-- I WISH I HAD FOUND someone who taught WHAT I’M TEACHING
YOU about withstanding and overcoming satanic attacks
when I was getting clobbered by satan many years ago.
When he was USING ME FOR
DAILY target practice!
When he was beating the crap out me ruthlessly and
And all I got from supposed “ministers” of the Gospel were
boring hymns, emotional unproductive shouting, that carried
NO MORE SPIRITUAL AUTHORITY than the sons of Sceva (Acts
19:14-15), and of course the ever-present BULLSH*T “give to
the lying minister and THAT will make all your troubles
I DID NOT LEARN THESE THINGS from a ministerial manual
either. I LEARNED them
from PERSONAL EXPERIENCE.
And I DID NOT
know ANYONE who had the spiritual authority to whom
I could go and say “please get the devil off my back” AS
YOU ARE DOING.
Believe me, I searched and searched, I could even MENTION
WELL KNOWN NAMES,
found NO ONE.
I’ve been there.
And -- praise Jesus eternally! --
By His Grace, by His
Holy Spirit of Truth, and by His Authority, I came out
VICTORIOUS of what seemed (at the time) like
AN ENDLESS TORTURE CHAMBER
WITH NO WAY OUT!
Hallelujah to the Lamb!
Praise the Father, Son and Holy Spirit!
I learned these things by communing with Jesus, seeking
Truth from the Holy Spirit and His written Word.
I learned these things
THE HARD WAY, and it TOOK MANY YEARS,
and MANY TEARS, to learn them.
Jesus DID THE HARD PART FOR ALL OF US:
I’ve DONE the HARD PART of finding out THE STEPS and
putting them into actionable form –
ALL YOU GOTTA DO is follow
the simple, clear instructions.
I’m sharing them with you
FREE OF CHARGE, with NO ULTERIOR MOTIVES, and NOTHING TO GAIN,
and ALL that some of you can come up with is: “please pray,
the devil’s after me?”
Give me a freakin’ break!
Look at the horrific terror attack that just took place in
Manchester... where CHILDREN and TEENS were targeted...
We THINK that poor little old me is “being persecuted” and
“attacked by satan” here in America, where we have nice
homes, as much security as one can have in this crazy,
fallen, mixed up world, LIVING IN THE RICHEST NATION on
earth, where NO ONE goes hungry, where we enjoy ALL THE
MODERN CONVENIENCES invented by man: great housing,
automobiles, air conditioning and heating, clean water,
food galore, any type of clothing we desire, shopping mall
to satisfy any material whim, computers, lap tops, smart
phones, credit cards, welfare, unemployment compensation,
Medicare, food stamps… you name it.
Where there are Bibles in virtually every home (tragically,
mostly sitting on a coffee table or shelf collecting dust),
where the Gospel is heard on TV, radio, internet, podcasts,
where there are “Christian” buildings on almost every
There are THOUSANDS of Christian brothers and sisters
across the globe
who CANNOT EVEN CONGREGATE or CARRY A BIBLE without
putting their lives in danger.
Who are being BRUTALLY persecuted,
MURDERED FOR THEIR FAITH.
Who HAVE BEEN DRIVEN from their homes, had all their
property confiscated, and
DON’T KNOW from
where the next meal or glass or water MAY (or may NOT) come.
Who’ve had LOVED ONES imprisoned, tortured and KILLED in
the most heinous, traumatic ways imaginable!
And YOU think that YOU are “being attacked by the devil’?
And YOU don’t even have the strength TO GET satan OFF YOUR
Worse, you’re too lazy and self-absorbed
TO EVEN TRY?
When Jesus has given us His Nature, His own Spirit, and
AUTHORITY to do so?
Now, go ahead and write your angry emails at me for telling
you THE TRUTH:
I DARE YOU…
TUESDAY, MAY 23, 2017
my beloved, as you have always obeyed, not as in my
presence only, but now much more in my absence, WORK OUT
WITH FEAR AND TREMBLING:
IT IS GOD WHO WORKS IN YOU,
both TO WILL AND TO DO His good pleasure”.
“See that? See that? Paul said
we have WORK OUT OUR SALVATION. That means we are
saved by grace plus works”!!!
Whoa, whoa, whoa…
Not so fast, Bubba…
Nowhere do these verses say that we work FOR
Nowhere do they say that salvation DEPENDS,
in whole or in part, on works.
And NOWHERE does it say that if we don’t
work, we lose our salvation.
The term “lose salvation” IS NOT FOUND IN
Had Paul said that we are saved by works,
he’d be a two-faced liar and I’d the first to take my Bible
and throw it in the trash can.
If there’s ONE RECURRING THEME in Paul’s
Epistles, from Romans to Hebrews is that we ARE NOT saved
by works. That works have NOTHING, repeat, NOTHING
to do with our Salvation.
Just a few examples:
“For we conclude that
a man is
justified BY FAITH,
THE WORKS of the law” (Romans 3:28).
“…to the one
WHO DOES NOT
WORK BUT TRUSTS God who
THEIR FAITH IS CREDITED AS RIGHTEOUSNESS” (Romans
you are saved by Grace through Faith and that not of
yourselves, it (Salvation) is THE GIFT OF GOD,
OF WORKS, lest any man
should boast” (Ephesians 2:8-9).
“NOT BY WORKS OF RIGHTEOUSNESS
WHICH WE HAVE DONE, but ACCORDING
TO HIS MERCY
by the washing of regeneration, and renewing of the Holy
Spirit” (Titus 3:5).
HE IS ABLE ALSO
SAVE THEM TO THE UTTERMOST THAT COME UNTO GOD BY
HIM, seeing He
ever lives to make intercession for them” (Hebrews
This is a prime example of RELIGIOUS
DISHONESTY, of focusing only on the portion of the verse
that serves our agenda and IGNORING the remainder of the
The REST of verse 13 says, CLEAR AS CRYSTAL, that
IS GOD WHO DOES THE WORK.
IT IS GOD
(NOT YOU) WHO DOES THE WORK:
WITH FEAR AND TREMBLING:
IT IS GOD WHO WORKS IN YOU
both TO WILL AND TO DO His good pleasure”.
Which part of
“it is God WHO WORKS in you” don’t DISHONEST CHARLATANS understand?
Which part of “IT
IS GOD WHO WORKS IN YOU --
both TO WILL AND TO DO
His good pleasure” don’t’ they get?
God gets ALL THE CREDIT for both, putting
His will is our hearts, as well as FOR CARRYING IT OUT
Our part is
TO GET OUT OF THE WAY and ALLOW GOD to WORK OUT (develop) THE
SALVATION we ALREADY HAVE.
Our part is
TO GET OUT OF THE WAY and ALLOW GOD
TO WORK His will and DO His Work in and through us.
That verse says NOTHING, ZERO about living
under the Law. The word “law” is not even MENTIONED!
That verse says NOTHING, ZERO about
following “commandments”. The word “commandments”
DOESN’T APPEAR in the text, either.
That verse says NOTHING, ZERO about
What is says is
TO WORK OUT THE SALVATION (Jesus)
WE ALREADY HAVE (that’s why it’s
IT’S GOD HIMSELF (Salvation Himself, Jesus)
WHO WORKS IN US…
Well, what about the “fear and trembling”
part of the verse?
We are saved by faith, NOT by fear.
Faith is trust.
Therefore, THIS DOES NOT MEAN that we are to live in
fear of losing salvation.
The “fear and trembling” simply refers to
us BEING IN AWE
of a God SO GREAT that He is able to WORK OUT His
will and DO HIS WORK through these imperfect, ungodly,
rebellious earthen vessels.
All these verses say is (paraphrasing):
“Hey guys, NOW THAT YOU’RE SAVED,
let the salvation you have PLAY ITSELF OUT through you.”
End of story.
Jesus IS Salvation.
LET THE JESUS (Salvation) YOU HAVE INSIDE, WORK ITSELF from
THE INSIDE OUT.
Let the Jesus you have inside MANIFEST
There is NOTHING ANYWHERE in that verse that
says we are to work FOR Salvation.
Religionists who distort these verses are
They will move heaven and earth, twist
and DEFORM God’s Holy Word
in order to “justify” THEIR FALSE DOCTRINE.
If you’re one of the CORRUPT hypocrites WHO
ENGAGES IN SUCH deliberate deception, I advise you to
repent, receive Jesus into your heart, fall on your face,
and beg God’s forgiveness:
Romans 3:20; Galatians 2:16:
Works have NEVER saved, and will never save, a single soul.

IS SATAN OUR TEACHER?
Does God use satan to teach us?
Is satan God’s instrument of choice whenever our
Father wants to “teach us a lesson”?
That seems to be THE OPINION of many Christians.
But I can’t find ONE verse in Scripture that says such
God gave us THE GREATEST TEACHER in the universe: His HOLY
Spirit. (John 16:13; 1 John 2:27)
He also gave us THE BEST TEACHING TEXT IN THE UNIVERSE:
His written Word. (Psalm 18:30; 2 Timothy 3:16)
Our heavenly Father DOESN’T need satan, or use satan, TO
TEACH US ANYTHING.
He teaches us DESPITE our rebellion, disobedience
He teaches us DESPITE the fact that WE ALLOW satan through
LACK OF KNOWLEDGE (IGNORANCE) TO CLOBBER US.
He teaches us DESPITE the fact
that WE PAY MORE
ATTENTION TO SATAN, by default, THAN WE PAY TO CHRIST.
Pause and meditate…
He teaches us PROVIDED THAT we PAY ATTENTION TO HIM and
LISTEN to what He says.
The Holy Spirit is a wonderful, kind and patient teacher.
But HE DOESN’T
SPIRITUAL TRUTH on us.
We must be
to receive Truth.
It’s because MOST OF US DON’T PAY ATTENTION to Him, and
DON’T LISTEN, don’t
spend 30 seconds meditating the insuperable Wisdom in His
Word, that WE ALLOW satan to steal, kill and destroy.
The Church is NOT leaving this world in defeat.
We are leaving IN VICTORY.
“For whoever is born
of God OVERCOMES THE WORLD: and
THIS IS THE VICTORY that overcomes the world, even
OUR FAITH” (our
TRUST in the INNER Christ). (1 John 5:4)
We better start thinking, acting and speaking LIKE CHRIST.
We ALL better stop whining, wallowing in self-pity, and
playing “the victim”, AND
ACTING and SPEAKING LIKE WINNERS.
God makes ALL KINDS OF WONDERFUL PROMISES to
(Luke 11:22; 1 John 5:5; Revelation 2:11, 17, 26;
3:5, 12, 21; 21:7)
He promises NOTHING to losers.

GLORY OF THE LATTER
When Salomon inaugurated the first Temple in Jerusalem, at
Ophel, on top of the Gihon Spring, just south of the
so-called Temple Mount, there was much rejoicing.
The first Temple was a magnificent edifice that gleamed in
daylight and could be seen from a distance. It was built
using the finest woods and materials, all covered in silver
It was exquisitely decorated with hand carved palms, bells,
and pomegranates, all crafted by the most skilled artisans.
Its curtains were made of the most luxurious dyed skins.
When God’s Presence filled the temple, it was SO STRONG
that the priests appointed to carry out the temple service,
COULD NOT ENTER THE TEMPLE, OR EVEN STAND because of God’s
glory. (2 Chronicles 5:14; 7:2)
That temple became a TEMPORARY dwelling for the Most High
It stood until the Babylonians destroyed it in 586 B.C.
It was rebuilt in 516 B.C. in a CONSIDERABLY LESS GRANDIOSE
Those who remembered the first Temple wept when they
compared the second temple to the former. (Ezra 3:12)
It seemed rather insignificant compared to the first
Temple. (Haggai 2:3)
The Second Temple stood until the Romans destroyed it in 70
It was destroyed because of the many abominations that went
on in it (Daniel 9:27; John 2:14-15).
…And because the Most High does not dwell in temples MADE
BY HUMAN HANDS. (Acts 7:48)
Both the first and second Temples were made by human hands.
By the time the Romans destroyed the second Temple, God had
availed Himself of ANOTHER temple:
An ETERNAL temple NOT made by human hands: (Daniel 2:34)
The Body of Christ is God’s true temple.
And He/it is comprised OF MANY TEMPLES:
(1 Corinthians 6:19)
God prophesied that THE GLORY OF THE LATTER TEMPLE would be
GREATER THAN the former’s (Haggai 2:9)
We ARE the latter temple.
We are HIS
That’s why we’re called “SAINTS” (HOLY, SET APART ONES).
I said all of that to say this:
Religion is full of baloney.
It has sold us the lie that we’re sinners, at the mercy of
satan (who has no mercy).
When in fact we are
THE TEMPLE OF the Living God:
We are PREDESTINED TO CONFORM TO the Image of
THE REAL Temple,
who is Jesus. (Romans 8:29)
Like the former temple, we are predestined TO MANIFEST HIS
PRESENCE – and NOT ONLY ON SPECIAL OCCASIONS as happened
with the first Temple, but
ALL THE TIME.
We are destined to be
FILLED WITH HIS GLORY to a
much LARGER degree than the first temple.
Just like the priests could NOT even stand to minister for
the glory, WE WON’T BE ABLE TO STAND THIS CORRUPTIBLE
That’s why when this temple is FILLED WITH GLORY we will be
transferred INTO THE HEAVENLY REALM,
WHERE WE BELONG, before God’s Throne.
Just like the priests could
not even stand before the glory, NO ONE will be able to
stand against, resist, or oppose THE SUPERIOR GLORY that
will be manifested in us. (Romans 8:18)
We need to SEE OURSELVES as THE BODY OF Christ:
As much His Body as the
earthly body in which He manifested 2,000 years ago.
Jesus is TO INHABIT AND FILL our bodies just as He
inhabited and filled THAT EARTHLY body, born of a virgin,
that He used in the first century.
We need to REALIZE that
WE ARE His
As His Temple, we are NOT – NOT –
sinners, that satan can whip at will.
We have Jesus’ COMPLETE AUTHORITY to speak and act in His
Name. (Matthew 28:18-19)
We are destined to
be Him, and to manifest His glory. (1 John 3:2; 4:17)
THAT is THE Truth.
WHAT RELIGION SAYS
WHAT GOD SAYS WE
is what Christian congregations and ministers NEED TO BE
The Lord is in His
LET ALL THE EARTH BE SILENT BEFORE HIM.

COMES NOT, BUT TO STEAL, and to kill, and to
destroy: I AM COME THAT THEY MIGHT HAVE LIFE, and that they
might have it more abundantly." (John 10:10)
We're not talking today about the many
greedy thieves that infect the Church:
We’re not talking about those who ask for
10% of your income and falsely call it "tithe", when the
biblical tithe was not money.
Or about the "give in order to get"
crooks who claim that donating money TO THEM - so THEY can
live lives of excess and extravagance AT YOUR EXPENSE - is
"giving to Gaaaawd".
Or about those who distort the Word of
God CLAIMING that it says something it DOES NOT say, only
TO SELL IT as "Bible prophecy" to foolish Bible
I'm talking about THE WORST kind of
thief there is:
The thief that STEALS JESUS
I didn't say they can steal Salvation, I
said they STEAL JESUS.
They STEAL JESUS AWARENESS from
us by DIVERTING our attention to EXTERNAL SUBSTITUTES.
Just look at the morally bankrupt world
Because most people HAVE NOTHING
worthwhile or fulfilling ON THE INSIDE, they have A HUGE
VOID that they need to fill.
They're terrified to FACE God therefore
they RUN AS FAR AWAY from Him as they possibly can.
By focusing their attention on
ANYTHING and EVERYTHING BUT Jesus!
THEIR ATTENTION is fixed on all sorts
of distractions ON THE OUTSIDE, to the TOTAL NEGLECT of
All that you see ON THE OUTSIDE is
Repeat: ALL that we see ON THE OUTSIDE
OUTSIDE things will soon vanish into
forgetfulness and be NO MORE.
What people have ON THE INSIDE
- good or bad - is ETERNAL (2 Corinthians
ONLY what's INSIDE
Have you ever seen SO MANY "AWARD SHOWS"
for so many people WITH NO TALENT?
ALL THEY'RE "FAMOUS" FOR is who they had
sex with, the sex video they made then leaked on the
internet, some raunchy relationship in which they are
involved, some disgusting antic they performed on stage,
how little their attire left to the imagination, the latest
crime they committed, ragging on someone they don't like,
how hooked they are on crack, heroin or booze, how long
they spent on rehab, whom they are cheating on their
partner with, or whom they are divorcing.
That's why we live in a sex-obsessed
They try to fill that EMPTINESS ON THE INSIDE
with SEX, SEX, SEX, and more SEX.
It's displayed in front of us CONSTANTLY.
Everywhere you go, everywhere you look,
everywhere you turn: TV, movies, internet, smart phone,
And since sex can only "satisfy"
Since it only "fills" their empty hearts
for a short season...
They need to make it more and more
Gay sex, bestiality, orgies, sex with
vampires, and now -- the latest "gift" from spiritually
destitute and morally bankrupt Hollywood -- sadomasochistic
Food, booze, drugs and porn are other
“fillers” which we use to TRY TO COMPENSATE for being
filled with Jesus and His Spirit INSIDE.
Modern gadgetry is another Jesus thief
that DIVERTS our attention from Jesus.
I remember when people actually LOOKED AT
YOU during a conversation.
Now they talk AT you, while they're
eyes are glued to their IPhone, checking to see who
texted them and texting them back.
Look, I'm quite a multi-tasker myself. In
order to properly function in today's world, we all have to
avail ourselves of modern conveniences.
I'm not proposing we revert to the Stone
I like technology. It can do A LOT OF
GOOD and save A LOT OF TIME.
But when OUTER THINGS THEMSELVES
BECOME THE FOCUS of our lives, when they
STEAL our AWARENESS of Jesus, THAT'S when they
Carnal lusts are Jesus thieves,
technology can be a Jesus thief, and PEOPLE can steal
A lot of selfish, delusional Christians,
who think God and
the world revolve AROUND THEM and their idiotic OPINION,
are Jesus thieves.
They're the ones who make mountains out
of proverbial molehills, split theological hairs, and point
out inconsequential details.
They "recommend" books written by SINFUL,
GREEDY, LYING MORTALS, when THEY don't KNOW THE BOOK
WRITTEN BY THE IMMORTAL.
When they DON’T SPEND ONE NANOSECOND
on the INNER Christ!
But I would be remiss if I didn't mention
THE BIGGEST THIEF OF ALL:
That's the individual who HAS JESUS
and doesn't share Him with anyone.
He or she is a Jesus HOARDER.
They have Him, but won't tell
anyone else HOW TO get Him.
They prefer, instead, to run away from
their responsibility, and hide in the bushes (Genesis
I don't care WHO you are:
if you hide in
the bushes long enough, you're gonna get bitten by THE

GONE FOR A SEASON
“And when the devil had ended every temptation, HE DEPARTED
from Him FOR A SEASON.” (Luke 4:13)
“Be sober, BE
VIGILANT (ALERT); because
your adversary the
devil, as a roaring lion, walks about, SEEKING
WHOM HE MAY devour:
STEADFAST IN THE FAITH, knowing that the same
afflictions are accomplished in your brethren that are in
the world.” (1 Peter 5:8-9)
You came under attack from satan, you stood on Jesus’
Authority, and on His written Word, resisted the wicked one
IN THE SPIRIT, and you OVERCAME.
He’ll never bother you again, right?
He will leave us FOR A SEASON, as he did with Jesus.
And then, when you’ve forgotten all about it, he’ll try to
hit you again.
After tempting Jesus in the wilderness, when He was,
humanly speaking, at His weakest, having fasted 40 days and
40 nights, the devil left FOR A WHILE.
Sometime later, during Jesus’ 3˝ year public ministry satan
tried again, in various ways, to trip Jesus up with tricky
questions, inciting the chief priests to have Him arrested,
and even trying to kill Him by having Him pushed off a
As long as we remain in this world in mortal bodies, satan
will seize every opportunity to devour us, as we read
He did with Jesus, and he’ll try to do it with us.
The key to victory is NOT TO GIVE HIM ANY opportunities.
He CANNOT devour us if we DON’T LET HIM.
Again: the devil CANNOT devour us, UNLESS we let him.
That is why he seeks WHOM
HE MAY devour.
That means he CANNOT devour just anyone, but only those WHO
ALLOW THEMSELVES to be devoured.
Which begs the question:
WHOM may he devour?
1. Those who GIVE PLACE TO the devil, especially in their
minds and emotions.
2. Those who allow satan to plant thoughts in their minds,
and then choose to DWELL ON such thoughts.
3. Those who live in fear.
4. Those who KNOWINGLY OR UNKNOWINGLY OPEN THE DOOR to
satan by engaging in various ungodly activities such as the
use of hallucinogenic drugs, and other mind-altering
substances, illicit sex, or participating in the occult.
5. Those who allow DISORDER of any kind in their lives.
6. Those who through spiritual ignorance allow SPIRITUAL
STRONGHOLDS OF DARKNESS to form over their lives.
WHAT KEEPS SATAN AT BAY?
1. Keeping ourselves in the Spirit (within): Living in and
from the Divine Love (born again) Nature INSIDE.
2. Keeping our thoughts pure.
3. Obedience to God’s Word.
ourselves before God.
5. Praising God.
Satan and his evil spirits ARE ALLERGIC to praise.
You want to get rid of them in a hurry, PRAISE
Fill the atmosphere around your life (home, work place,
etc.) with PRAISE.
6. Doing a regular SPIRITUAL PURGING of the atmosphere over
and around your life.
This should be done about once a month, IN THE NAME
OF JESUS AND BY THE BLOOD OF JESUS.
satan in the Spirit, exercising Authority over him, and
reminding him that Jesus has won ETERNAL VICTORY over him.
The main point is this:
As long as we’re on earth in mortal bodies, even if we have
gotten victory over some attack,
don’t think that you can rest on your laurels indefinitely.
BE ALERT, as Peter tells us above.
For, after some time has passed, satan will try again.
He’s just looking for an opening.
That is why we MUST BE ALERT, and
NOT GIVE HIM ANY.

TEST OR ATTACK?
Every born-again child of God will be tested, more than
once, during his or her lifetime.
It's a natural and NECESSARY part of Christian growth.
No one is exempt. Every patriarch, apostle, prophet, or
follower of Christ was tested in various ways.
Tests, which either come directly from God and/or are
allowed by God, come for the purpose of REFINING US.
A BIG DIFFERENCE BETWEEN BEING TESTED, AND BEING UNDER
ATTACK BY SATAN and his representatives.
sporadically, at different phases of our spiritual
continuously and usually on several fronts at once.
satan being the ruthless dirty liar that he is, doesn’t
He’ll do his evil best
TO OVERWHELM US by hitting us with several problems AT ONCE.
The best example of his dirty tactics is Job.
EVERYTHING in Job’s life crumbled seemingly AT ONCE:
In ONE DAY he lost all his children all his cattle, his
servants, and his wealth.
As if that weren’t painful and stressful enough, a bit
later he developed
painful, itching sores from head to toe.
And if THAT wasn’t bad enough, he had to put up with a
nagging and foolish wife, to boot.
She basically told him to “drop dead”, but not before
venting his anger at God, and cursing Him.
God is always the SOLUTION, THE VICTORY, and THE WAY OUT OF
both tests and attacks.
The LAST thing we want to do is curse our Divine Deliverer.
Tests are intended
to develop our faith, test our endurance, and strengthen
Attacks on the other hand
are intended to kill, steal and destroy.
If a test is from God, we are to submit to Him, put the
matter into His Hands, a TRUST HIM to get us through it.
Attacks are to be RESISTED and VANQUISHED in and by the
the Word, and by the Blood of Jesus, remembering that
Christ has given us FULL AUTHORITY (HIS own authority) over satan and every
principality and power.
FAR GREATER IS HE WHO IS IN US than the enemy:
Therefore, if you are under spiritual assault, if you are
facing A BARRAGE of issues at once – that’s AN ATTACK.
If every time you try to take ONE step forward 4 or 5
different things come at you that FORCE YOU to take SEVERAL
STEPS BACKWARD – that’s a satanic attack.
Attacks are overcome and won by cleansing the atmosphere
in, over and around our lives: by toppling strongholds of
darkness, BY ELIMINATING FEAR AND CHAOS FROM OUR LIVES, and
by exercising Jesus’ authority over the wicked one.
There’s one more difference:
when we’re tested by God, the test may be very
unpleasant, BUT WE ALWAYS, ALWAYS, EMERGE VICTORIOUS IN THE END.
When we’re ATTACKED by satan
his purpose is to destroy us. (John 10:10)
ATTACKS MUST BE confronted and OVERCOME,
the sooner the better,
OR THEY MAY DESTROY
We MUSTN’T FEAR attacks.
For, when Christ LIVES IN us, we HAVE FAR GREATER
SPIRITUAL FIRE POWER than satan does.
Jesus has ALREADY WON the victory for us.
When we RESIST the devil in the Spirit – standing FIRMLY
and CONFIDENTLY on God’s Word (on both Jesus and the
written Word) – HE WILL FLEE.
And you will emerge TRIUMPHANT.
“Submit yourselves therefore to God. RESIST THE DEVIL,
HE WILL FLEE FROM YOU.”

The religious system has become SO CORRUPT that it is hard
to watch the spectacle for more than a few minutes.

implication is "MY

Even if we
give them the benefit of the doubt and ASSUME that all
those guys on Kristian TV are born-again, IF THEY ARE,
THEY HAVE THE SAME CHRIST THAT YOU AND I HAVE.
If IT’S JESUS
WHO DOES THE HEALING, WHY must sheep keep running after
the guys in the white suits, INSTEAD OF RUNNING AFTER the
sheep attend their “crusades” in order to be healed?
If Jesus is
the healer and He lives in EACH OF His sheep, WHY CAN’T
SHEEP BE HEALED RIGHT IN THEIR OWN HOMES?
But Jesus was
followed by crowds seeking healing…
HEALINGS WERE REAL.
TOOK ADVANTAGE of the dumb sheep and NEVER ASKED THEM FOR

A poor, lost soul deceived by religion recently wrote me
BY FAITH ONLY.
That IT COULDN’T
BE THAT EASY.
That, in addition to faith, we needed to “do good” to
That we couldn’t just “cross our arms” and do nothing.
That if salvation was based
only on belief in
then everyone is saved.
Everyone is NOT saved because not everyone believes in

And the word for “belief”

about one thing: It is
Do you know why?
Because Jesus didn’t come to condemn but TO SAVE!
He made Salvation
Salvation IS EASY
because Jesus ALREADY DID THE “HARD PART” for us:
Again: Jesus did
THE HARD PART SO THAT SALVATION
WOULD BE EASY FOR
THAT IS WHY He paid for and TOOK AWAY the sin of the world
(John 1:29, Hebrews 9:26, 1 John 3:5)
THAT IS WHY He was spit upon, beaten, mocked, and scourged
with a whip suffering over 120 stripes,
THAT IS WHY He was crowned with thorns, crucified, and even
had a spear thrust into His side.
THAT IS WHY He spent
3 days and 3 nights in hell paying the
penalty for the sins that you and I should have paid.
THAT IS WHY He shed His most precious, sinless blood.
THAT IS WHY He ROSE FROM THE DEAD and ASCENDED TO HEAVEN.
THAT IS WHY it’s
super easy for anyone to be saved:
ALL it takes is receiving Christ into our hearts as only
God and Savior, and FULLY TRUSTING what Jesus did to give
us ETERNAL salvation.
THAT IS WHY salvation
is ONLY BY FAITH in what He did, not in
what we do.
There is NO RIGHTEOUSNESS in the universe, except Christ’s
(Psalm 53:1-3, Isaiah 64:6, Mark 10:18).
"He made Him to be sin for us, who knew no sin,
that we might
be made the righteousness of God in Him." (2 Corinthians 5:21).
THERE IS NO GREATER RIGHTEOUSNESS than Christ’s.
THAT IS WHY He imputes (credits)
RIGHTEOUSNESS to us BY GRACE (it’s a FREE GIFT).
THAT IS WHY salvation
And that is why those
who “struggle” and “labor” to be
“obedient” and MERIT salvation are LOST.
They DESPISE and REJECT
PRICE of Jesus’ Supreme Sacrifice, deeming it
THEY REJECT His easy salvation.
They refuse to TRUST Jesus
and REST, confidently KNOWING THAT He took
care of our salvation from beginning to end.
They want salvation “the hard way” so that THEY CAN
TAKE CREDIT FOR BEING SAVED.
They DESPERATELY want to say “I was saved because
I EARNED salvation”:
because I did this and this and this, and because I DIDN’T
And God will have
NONE OF IT.
Salvation is NOT by what we do, but by WHAT JESUS DID and
I am praying for this poor, lost soul and
many others like him who feel that Jesus is insufficient and, therefore, that we must HELP HIM save us.
I pray it doesn’t take FINDING THEMSELVES IN HELL
for them to realize that THERE IS SALVATION IN NO ONE BUT

HONOR YOUR MOTHER
For God said, 'Honor your father AND
MOTHER' (Matthew 15:4)
What does it mean to "honor" someone?
It means to regard them with great
respect and esteem.
Most mothers deserve honor.
If for no other reason: because
THEY BROUGHT US
INTO THIS WORLD.
If men had to deal with the hormones,
bloating, morning sickness, weight gain, discomfort,
carrying a baby to full term, and then the pain of
childbirth, to boot... the human race would be extinct.
Being a mom not only involves pain and
discomfort but carries tremendous responsibility.
After the baby is born, comes the
unenviable task of raising him, her, or them.
Any mom will tell you it's a ‘round
the clock, 24/7 proposition.
There are some notable mothers in the
Eve, Sarah, Rebecca, Leah, Rachel, Ruth,
Esther, Elizabeth and, of course, Mary.
We can all learn something from these
Eve was created in the image of God,
as the ideal companion to Adam.
Although she was deceived, she became the
"mother of all living" (Genesis 3:20).
Sarah was loyal to Abraham,
even when he passed her off as his "sister". She became the
first of Israel's Matriarchs and is the first woman
mentioned in Hebrew's 11 "Hall of Faith" (Hebrews 11:11).
is the first woman in the Bible to give birth to twins. She
was assertive enough to favor Jacob over Esau and deceive
the aging Isaac into bestowing the birthright blessing on
This, inevitably, caused strife between
her two sons: yet God used her deception to advance
His purpose (Romans 9:13).
She became the second of Israel's
Leah had six boys and a girl,
and had to deal with the unpleasantness of not being too
attractive and sharing her husband with her beautiful
That, I assure you, was no picnic. She
always felt unloved and had to play second fiddle to Rachel
since Jacob loved and preferred Rachel, while he slept with
Leah mostly out of "duty" (Genesis 29:32,39).
Yet God showed favor toward Leah and
she gave birth to HALF of Israel (6 of the 12 tribes),
thus becoming the third of Israel's Matriarchs.
Even though Rachel was beautiful,
and Jacob was deeply in love with her (can you imagine
WORKING 7 YEARS just so he could marry her?), she
was barren and became jealous of Leah, her homely yet
Eventually she gave birth to Joseph and
died giving birth to Benjamin.
Ruth forsook her country and family
in order to worship the true God and became part of Jesus'
genealogy (Ruth 1:16; Matthew 1:5).
gave birth to John the Baptist in her old age, was
filled with the Holy Spirit, and was so sensitive to
Him that her baby leaped, while still in her womb, at the
sound of Mary's greeting (Luke 1:41-45).
And Mary's faith and obedience,
upon hearing Gabriel's Announcement about her conception
and Virgin Birth of the Messiah, were truly admirable
This is especially true when we consider
she was barely a teenager.
What we can learn from these mothers is
that God is good, He is faithful, He is MERCIFUL, often
chooses the weak to confound the strong, and while NO
MOTHER IS PERFECT, He will bless and use every woman
that obeys Him to fulfill His purpose.
For all that you are, and all that you
do: Thank you, moms!
Happy Mother's Day!

Every human of sound mind carries on AN INTERNAL DIALOGUE with
himself or herself, from moment to moment.
We “talk to ourselves” in our minds ALL THE TIME.
We do this without
even realizing it.
Thousands of thoughts cross our minds each day. And
those thoughts PLAY A LARGE ROLE in how our lives play out.
Those thoughts affect our emotions, behavior, lifestyle,
attitude, and the overall quality of our lives – or lack
Here’s the inescapable maxim given in Scripture:
“As a man thinks... so is he” (Proverbs 23:7)
Most people, Christians in particular, act as though they are
HELPLESS to control the mental traffic that continuously
runs through our minds.
Fact is, we CHOOSE what we think.
Again: we CHOOSE what we think.
While it’s true that satan, either directly or indirectly, will
make certain thoughts flash through our minds, WE DO NOT
HAVE TO ACCEPT his thoughts.
We have THE POWER TO REJECT negative thoughts.
We have THE POWER TO
Again: We have the GOD-GIVEN POWER, as part of our GOD-GIVEN FREE
WILL, to DETERMINE which thoughts to accept and which
thoughts to reject.
Which thoughts we allow to linger, and which thoughts we DISCARD,
the moment they come.
Satan CAN put thoughts in our minds. He
has NO POWER to MAKE those thoughts STAY there.
He has NO POWER TO FORCE US to accept such thoughts.
He has NO POWER to KEEP US FROM REJECTING those thoughts.
He has NO POWER to keep us from CHANGING OUR THINKING TO
We are NOT --- NOT --- NOT --- helpless with regards to what we
If we were, God wouldn’t have told us WHAT WE MUST CHOOSE TO
We can all agree that there’s A LOT of evil in this world.
All the evil in the world – ALL
OF IT, without exception – STARTED IN THE HUMAN MIND.
All of it, whether it’s war, hunger, poverty, social inequality,
disease, racism, bad relationships, terrorism, you name it…
ALL OF IT began
with HUMAN THOUGHTS.
And all of it comes from human thoughts that WERE ALLOWED…
Again, all evil comes from human thoughts THAT WERE ALLOWED – BY
US – to dwell on our minds, develop, fester and
turn into tangible, visible DECAY.
Scripture tells us the human mind is God’s enemy. (Romans
It’s also OUR ENEMY.
It was the human mind (which is part of the human SOUL) that
satan approached, then infected in Eden.
And it is the human mind that he’s been using ever since to bring
fear, chaos, wickedness, and misfortune.
If we DWELL ON THE
PAST “so and
so did this to me”, “I didn’t deserve what he or she said
or did”, “he or she was unfair”, “life is unfair”,
“everything turns out well for others, but not for me”, or
“they took away our land from us”, you
are RIGHT WHERE SATAN WANTS YOU.
And he will kill, steal and destroy AS LONG AS YOU PLAY HIS GAME,
and choose to
dwell on HIS TERRITORY.
That is why we MUST, absolute MUST:
1. Choose POSITIVE thoughts, that line up with God’s Word.
Thoughts that are true, honest, just, pure, lovely, of good
report, virtuous and praiseworthy, and DWELL ON THOSE
We must think about Jesus, His love, His faithfulness, His power,
His Salvation which is eternal. (Philippians
And we must USE THE MIND OF THE INNER CHRIST, the Mind of the
Spirit, TO RULE OVER the natural mind. (1
Corinthians 2:16; Philippians 2:5)
When we do, we’re IN JESUS’ TERRITORY.
And the devil can’t touch us.
Stop the pity party, saints!
Stop being SELF-centered AND THINKING ONLY ABOUT POOR. OLD,
HELPLESS me: me, me, me, me, me, me, and me.
And start thinking about JESUS, JESUS, JESUS, JESUS, JESUS,
JESUS, and JESUS.
NO ONE ELSE can make that choice for you.
Most if not all the trouble that happens in our lives, happens
because WE allowed it.
Our thoughts, whether godly or ungodly, SET OFF A CHAIN REACTION
of feelings, attitudes, and actions that will ultimately
MANIFEST IN OUR LIVES.
It’s time to STOP playing the victim, it’s time to STOP blaming
“everyone else”, and face the fact that WE
ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR what

ONLY ONE GOSPEL
Although YOU WOULDN'T KNOW IT from
listening to various Christian groups,
two Gospels, three Gospels, and certainly not 230.
ONLY ONE (Galatians 1:8).
Just like there's ONLY
ONE God, Savior and Lord.
Just like there's ONLY ONE baptism that
saves which IS NOT water baptism but baptism by the Holy
Spirit INTO the Body of Christ, which is His Church (1
Corinthians 12:13). This baptism takes place
AUTOMATICALLY when we receive Christ.
Just like there's
ONLY ONE Church, not two, not three, not 230.
as you might have guessed, is NOT a denomination: it's THE
SPIRITUAL ASSEMBLY of BORN-AGAIN, JUSTIFIED HUMANS
MADE PERFECT BY THE BLOOD OF JESUS AND BY HIS OWN
RIGHTEOUSNESS (Hebrews 12:23).
That ONE Gospel
is GOOD NEWS.
it's THE BEST NEWS EVER GIVEN:
Despite the fact we've sinned,
God IS NOT angry with us (2 Corinthians 5:19).
He LOVES us.
He LOVES US
He LOVES YOU: NO STRINGS attached.
He LOVED YOU
ENOUGH TO DIE FOR YOU.
He PAID FOR EVERY SIN committed by humans - from the Garden of Eden to the final
day of the Millennium - on that cross and WITH HIS VERY OWN, PURE,
Your sins, WHOEVER you are, and WHATEVER
HAVE BEEN PAID FOR!
TOTALLY AND COMPLETELY!
They have been ERASED FOREVER from your

Salvation is A GIFT from God, totally
UNDESERVED BY US. (Ephesians 2:8-9).

Do you WANT Salvation?
If you do, He's YOURS.
Receive Him, Jesus Christ,
into your heart,
THIS VERY MOMENT.
Don't think about it, don't worry about
it, and don't procrastinate.
Take Eternal Life, grab it! It's yours!
THIS is YOUR MOMENT.
You DON'T NEED TO "give up" anything...
you DON'T NEED to "clean up".

THE DECEPTIVE SOUL
“The heart IS
DECEITFUL ABOVE ALL THINGS, AND DESPERATELY WICKED:
who can know it?” (Jeremiah 17:9)
“Whosoever is born of
God DOES NOT COMMIT
SIN; for His (God’s) Nature remains in him: and HE
CANNOT SIN, BECAUSE HE IS BORN OF God.” (1 John
OUR SOULS HAVE BEEN
DECEIVING US FOR THE PAST 6,000 YEARS.
Whether you realize it or not
YOUR SOUL is a
I repeat: YOUR SOUL is a KILLER!
It was Eve’s soul that satan DECEIVED.
It was Adam’s SOUL that satan MANIPULATED to get
what he wanted.
It’s the human soul THAT SINS. (Leviticus
6:2; Numbers 15:27; Ezekiel 18:20)
Since the wages of sin IS DEATH,
our SOULS have been
KILLING US FOR
SIX MILLENNIUMS, and 99% of God’s people
DON’T EVEN KNOW
IT. (Ezekiel 18:20; Romans 6:23)
God’s people are DESTROYED (THEY DIE) FOR LACK OF
It’s bad enough they DON’T KNOW IT.
Worse, 99% of God’s people
LIVE FROM THE
SOUL: from that same DECEITFUL, MURDEROUS SOUL that’s been
satan’s pawn and has been killing them since Eden.
Hence they are EASILY
Since they live
from THE VERY SOUL that satan approached and CONTAMINATED in Eden, the
very soul he has used for millennia TO MURDER US, deception
for him becomes a cinch.
That is why Christians, yes BORN-AGAIN
Christians, are SO VULNERABLE to deception.
That is WHY Jesus warned that in these
last days MANY would come, supposedly IN HIS NAME,
admitting that Jesus is the Messiah, CLAIMING to be Christians, and
WOULD DECEIVE MANY. (Matthew 24:4)
That is why I cringe every time some
Christian comes to me ALL CONFUSED because he or she
watched something published (supposedly) by another
“Christian” on YouTube or some website, and he or she
He or she
IS NOW TROUBLED, FILLED WITH DOUBT, incapable or spreading the
Gospel with any conviction, worthless as far as bringing
souls into the Kingdom, believing that the unbiblical
lunacy they watched might be “true”.
They have allowed satan
NOT ONLY TO DECEIVE
THEIR SOUL, NOT ONLY TO MAKE THEM “SEE” THINGS THAT AREN’T
TRUE (like he did with Eve), but have allowed the creep
TO ROB THEM OF THEIR
We, as believers, are supposed to have
But discernment and truth
COME FROM THE
SPIRIT, NOT FROM THE SOUL.
Again: discernment and truth, with regards to spiritual
COME FROM THE
SPIRIT, NOT FROM THE SOUL.
(Isaiah 11:2; 1 Corinthians 12:10)
Since most Christians
their born again Spirits and CHOOSE TO live from the
soul, 24/7, THEY ARE EASY PREY FOR THAT EVIL, LYING PREDATOR NAMED SATAN.
It’s THE SOUL that sins.
The spirit cannot sin, as we read above,
because the born again spirit
(2 Corinthians 3:17).
Unfortunately, Christians PREFER to live
from satan’s territory (the human mind and soul) to living
from God’s territory (the born-again Spirit).
By doing so they are, unwittingly,
CHOOSING SATAN OVER CHRIST.
The INNER CHRIST (the Christ IN US) is
our only HOPE of glory. (Colossians 1:27)
But until our minds are renewed and that
glory manifests, THE INNER CHRIST doesn’t DO US MUCH
GOOD when we NEGLECT HIM, IGNORE HIM, GRIEVE HIM, and
choose to focus on satan RATHER THAN focusing on Him.
Deception is NOT about to wane anytime
We better start CHOOSING Christ over
We better start CHOOSING to live FROM
THE INNER CHRIST (our born again spirit) instead of
living FROM OUR SOULS.

When Solomon said that “there is NOTHING NEW under the
sun”, HE KNEW whereof he spoke:
During Jesus’ ministry in the first century A.D., there
were Pharisees who thought they were BETTER THAN EVERYONE
ELSE because OF HOW THEY LOOKED and ACTED ON THE OUTSIDE:
BECAUSE OF WHAT
THEY DID OR
And, sure enough, there are Pharisees today who think
and act THE SAME WAY.
They may NO LONGER call themselves Pharisees, but they
exhibit all the Pharisaic traits.
They CLAIM to “observe” the Sinai Law, when Jesus said
NONE OF THEM kept it.
But they KNOW BETTER than Jesus.
There were Sadducees in Jesus’ day and, tragically,
there are Sadducees today WHO STILL DENY HIS RESURRECTION.
And I’m NOT talking about atheists, I’m talking about
church-attending “Christians”, and “Christian” ministers
with various theological degrees.
These “ministers” try to “spiritualize” Jesus’
Resurrection, and falsely teach that His physical body
remained on the cross and was devoured by birds of prey, or
that it stayed in the tomb and SAW CORRUPTION,
SPECIFICALLY FORETOLD that it wouldn’t. (Psalm 16:10).
And when the four Gospels, the Book of Acts, all the
Epistles, the Book of Revelation and
more than 500
who lived in Jesus’ time, and SAW HIM risen from the dead,
But they KNOW
BETTER than God.
And they also KNOW better
than 500 plus WITNESSES WHO SAW HIM resurrected. (1
“tiny” problems with their unbelief:
1. It will send them
STRAIGHT TO HELL.
(Romans 10:9) And,
2. Had Jesus’ dead body
BEEN SEEN 4 DAYS AFTER His Crucifixion, either in the tomb or on the
cross, THERE WOULD
BE NO CHRISTIANS TODAY.
The Christian faith would have been STOPPED ON ITS
TRACKS, and nipped in the bud.
Tch tch tch tch tch tch…
There were believers in Corinth in the first century,
and THERE ARE MODERN CORINTHIANS – ALL OVER THE WORLD –
They DON’T call themselves “Corinthians”, rightly so
since most of them don’t live in Corinth, but they have the
ABOUNDED in gifts and MANIFESTATIONS of the Spirit.
They had more Holy Spirit manifestations
THAN ANY OTHER
Yet they were also
THE MOST CARNAL bunch of Christians, and the ones most prone
to excess. (1 Corinthians 3:3; 5:1)
We see the same thing today among many Pentecostals.
Before you send that nasty letter or dismiss this message, I AM “Pentecostal”, NOT BY DENOMINATION, but in the sense that I am
Spirit-filled, experience various manifestations of the
Spirit, and I PRAY IN TONGUES privately.
Not publicly but PRIVATELY, as God’s Word instructs. (1
Corinthians 14:6, 18-19, 27-28)
I also have
CARNAL tendencies, as do most of you.
This isn’t a message of condemnation but of EDIFICATION
FOR ALL OF US, including me.
I DO NOT belong to ANY particular denomination. I do
belong to the
ENTIRE Body of Christ and endeavor to SERVE Jesus
and His ENTIRE
Body, REGARDLESS OF Christian label.
And last time I checked, His Body is comprised OF MANY
Christ’s Body is COMPRISED OF MANY DIFFERENT PARTS.
Some parts ARE SOOOO DIFFERENT, that it’s very easy to
conclude, ERRONEOUSLY, that they are NOT part of His Body.
But Jesus reminded us, through that marvelous teacher
named Paul, that if
the whole Church were a hand, then He would have NO BODY.
If the whole Church were A LEG, or AN EYE, He still
would have NO BODY.
DIFFERENT parts ARE NECESSARY…
Without them He has NO BODY,
and WE HAVE NO BODY.
Even when we
DON’T LIKE THOSE PARTS,
they ARE STILL
My main points are these:
1. Pharisees and Sadducees
WERE LOST in the first century and they are
STILL LOST TODAY.
Corinthians were CARNAL in the first century and they are
STILL CARNAL today.
That means that they can boast all they want about
being Spirit-filled, speaking in tongues, prophesying and
having gifts of healing.
They are STILL CARNAL and NOT spiritual as they claim
But at least first century Corinthians DID NOT FAKE the
gifts of the spirit as we do today.
At least first century Corinthians
DID NOT mimic the
gifts TO MANIPULATE dumb sheep to part with their money AND
GIVE IT to GREEDY WOLVES in sheep’s clothing.
At least first century Corinthians DID NOT MAKE A
MOCKERY of the Gifts of the Spirit.
Judgment always begins IN THE HOUSE OF GOD. (1 Peter
We better JUDGE OURSELVES, and act accordingly.
Either we clean up His House, or God will.

they're quoting the Bible (mostly Old Testament).

NOTHING GODLY about him.

Testament costume, is now telling his CUSTOMERS (eh...

"Yahweh", or Yeshua,
that they are
using His Name in vain, thereby breaking the second
What absolutely ridiculous, legalistic crap!
According to Genesis 11:14, IT WAS GOD WHO CONFUSED AND
DIVIDED THE (one) LANGUAGE IN ALL THE EARTH INTO VARIOUS
According to Hebrew tradition He divided it into AT LEAST
70 DIFFERENT LANGUAGES.
So, after God Himself PERPETRATED THIS ON HUMANITY, God's
going to BLAME them FOR NOT SPEAKING HEBREW????
Give me a religious break!
So, according to this
clown (hey, if you wear a funny-looking costume, what does
that make you?) people in France, Spain or Latin America
who call on the Name of Jesús are using His Name in vain.
Same goes for the the Italians when they call Him Gesů, the
Japanese Iesu, etc. Same goes for all English speaking
people when we call Him "Jesus".
What complete farce!
There's no LESS IMPORTANT issue
as far as God is concerned, than calling God by His Hebrew
Name, His Latin Name or His English Name. The Church faces
far greater challenges than that. God knows every
language and communicates in all of them.
He talks to me, do you think He usually speaks Hebrew? How
about when He talks to you?
No, He has complete mastery of English, I assure you.
When you called out to Him, in your time of need, did
you have to say "Oh, Yeshua!”
in order for Him to answer?
about when you first invited Him into your heart? Did you
call Him Yeshua?
No, you said "Jesus" and He came anyway, didn't He?

they want, BUT THIS IS WHAT IT BOILS DOWN TO:

I NEVER HEARD THAT
Every once in a while someone who claims
to have been reading these daily messages for years,
basically asks me to prove that something I said ISN’T A
Their “excuse” is that they “never heard
There are TONS of teachings on this
website that “you never heard before”.
I would think THAT is one of the reasons,
if not THE MAIN
reason, why you visit this website:

THE TRUE GOSPEL
OF GRACE (glory to Jesus!)
WAY IT’S REGULARLY PRESENTED BY THIS MINISTRY?
I could go on and on, since
there are MANY
OTHER BIBLICAL teachings here that “you never heard before”,
but I think I’ve made my point.
The reason you make those comments and
send those insolent emails, therefore, is NOT that you have
“never heard it before”,
but that YOU THINK
you have “caught me” in some error, and you HOPE to rub my
nose on it.
You DO NOT FOOL the Holy Spirit for one
microsecond, and you DO NOT fool me.
So let me make life easy for anyone who
has fed off our unique, FIRST CLASS spiritual table – DAILY
– for years and years – FREE OF CHARGE – never receiving
solicitations, never being asked to donate, or being asked
to buy anything:
If you have THE SLIGHTEST misgivings
about my spiritual integrity, do us both a favor and
find another spiritual table from which to eat.
A table provided by someone whom you IMPLICITLY TRUST.
Lord knows I’m far from perfect, Lord
knows I make mistakes, and Lord also knows that I would
never intentionally deceive or mislead anyone.
… Least of all where MY GOD AND SAVIOR,
who is also THE LOVE OF MY LIFE, and my very reason for
being, is concerned!
If after years and years
of BEING SERVED
for NOTHING (literally) you cannot see that, it’s
time for you to go elsewhere.
LETTER VERSUS SPIRIT
There is no more avid reader of the
Bible, or promoter of studying the Holy Scriptures, than
However, all the Bible study in the world
won’t help us perceive the Truth contained in God’s Word,
accompanied by the Holy Spirit’s invaluable input.
The Holy Spirit inspired that written
Word, and ONLY HE can unlock and reveal its most accurate
and deepest meaning.
Three quick examples:
1. Someone recently criticized me (in
fact called me a “reprobate” and “child of satan”) for
saying that “we NEED JESUS, we DON’T NEED religion”.
He quoted James 1:27, which mentions
religion, to “prove me” wrong.
Only one “tiny” problem: James was NOT
referring to Christian religion, since his Epistle is NOT
addressed to Christians but to NATURAL ISRAEL: “to the
in the Diaspora”. (James 1:1)
Therefore, IN CONTEXT, the “religion” to
which James refers in James 1:27 is NOT ANY form of
Christian religion, but to Judaism.
This man’s CONDEMNATION was quickly
Of course, his religious pride PREVENTED
him from apologizing.
Hopefully, it did not prevent him from
We have A LOT of (all glory to Jesus!) unique,
BIBLICAL teaching on this website.
Among that biblical teaching is that
NEITHER Saturday, NOR SUNDAY is the “designated day of
worship” in Scripture: that God MUST BE WORSHIPED EVERY
SINGLE DAY, INCLUDING Saturday
A while back some nit picking religionist
FELT COMPELLED to “split theological hairs” by pointing out
that Acts 20:7, which I cite in the teaching, was really
He based this on SPECULATION that, since
Paul preached “until midnight”, the meeting had started
before sundown, hence on Saturday.
Four HUGE problems:
A) Scripture doesn’t tell us PRECISELY
WHEN the meeting started.
It could have started at 6:30, 7, 8, 9, 10 or even
11 P.M. and Paul could have still preached until midnight.
All of which would make it SUNDAY.
B) Verse 8 says that there were “many
lamps” indicating that IT WAS DARK (after sundown).
Therefore, it couldn’t have been Saturday.
That would make it, UNDISPUTEDLY, Sunday.
C) Verses 10 and 11 tell us that, AFTER
midnight, Paul went down, raised the young man who fell off
the window from the dead, came back upstairs, ate with the
brethren (held a communion service), and then PREACHED SOME
All of which would make it,
D) And last, but not least, Scripture
pointedly says the meeting took place “on the FIRST day of
the week” which is Sunday.
I didn’t make that up, THE HOLY SPIRIT
Therefore, either the
Spirit LIED (perish the very idea) or this cretin WAS LYING
because he’s NOT a real Christ worshiper, but
a Saturday worshiper.
Those who feel compelled to nitpick such
inconsequential details, DO NOT HAVE THE SPIRIT of Christ
The letter kills, the Spirit makes alive.
The letter kills, the Spirit REVEALS
And those who WANT TO LOSE the ability TO
COMMUNICATE WITH US, by all means, GO AHEAD AND NITPICK!
ONE SURE WAY of being BLOCKED, PERMANENTLY.
If you want to know “the other ways” of
being in that ignoble category, I suggest you read the
article “BEFORE YOU WRITE” that’s been POSTED DIRECTLY
ABOVE THIS MESSAGE FOR THE PAST 8 YEARS.
Some are incapable of discerning between Jesus THE
MAN, who took off His glory, and made Himself IN FASHION
LIKE mortal men (Philippians 2:5-8), and Jesus’ Spirit who
is Almighty God (John 4:24).
That is WHY Jesus THE MAN said that “the
Father is GREATER than I” (John 14:28)
Jesus’ Spirit is every bit as much God as
the Father. In
fact, they are One. (John 10:30)
They are CARNALLY MINDED, DEVOID of the
That’s why they read Scripture and come
up with ludicrous crap such as “if Jesus is God, then who
was running the universe during the three days and nights
He was in the center of the earth”?
Last time I checked God is Spirit and God
Jesus’ Spirit WAS RUNNING THE UNIVERSE
then as much as He is ruling it now.
We simply CANNOT separate the Spirit from
For BOTH the Spirit and THE WORD are God
(John 1:1-3, 4:24)
When we take out the Spirit, we end up
NOT with THE WORD (Jesus) but WITH THE LETTER.
And the LETTER ALWAYS KILLS.
Jesus, AND ONLY JESUS, gives life.
And Jesus GIVES THAT LIFE through His
Most HOLY Spirit.

WHAT TO READ
The Bible is a VERY LONG BOOK, consisting
of 66 smaller books inspired by the Holy Spirit.
It is precious and REPLETE with Wisdom –
from beginning to end.
However, A NEW believer doesn’t need to
read endless genealogies, or how to offer animal sacrifices
in the tabernacle or temple since, AFTER JESUS’ SUPREME
SACRIFICE FOR SIN, he or she (praise Jesus forever!) CANNOT
and MUST not offer them.
They also don’t need to read the Book of
Revelation right off the bat.
Although Revelation promises a blessing
to those who read and heed its content, I don’t advise it
for beginners, but for those who are more advanced in
scriptural understanding, and more firmly established on
Religion has DONE A NUMBER on all our
heads. And I
remember the first time I read Revelation, as a new
believer, and it scared the heck out of me.
Only by God’s Grace, the passage of time
-- and as my understanding of FUNDAMENTAL Christian
doctrine grew, and the Holy Spirit directly intervened, did
I come to appreciate Revelation AS MUCH AS I DO TODAY.
There’s more than one reason why God made
it THE LAST
Book in the Bible.
Where would I recommend that
NEW BELIEVERS BEGIN
studying the Word?
Gospel of John
2nd Epistle to the Corinthians
3. Then the rest of the New Testament.
The Gospel of John lays out the Way of
Salvation like no other.
And Second Corinthians sets out the basic principles
of the Christian faith (in my humble opinion) clearer than
There are “Bible reading plans” that take
us through the entire Bible in a year.
It’s NEVER WRONG to read the Bible, NO MATTER where you begin.
However, QUALITY is far better than
Studying the Bible is NOT a “race against
time” to see how quickly we can read the whole thing.
I have spent
AN ENTIRE MONTH on just ONE
The Holy Spirit kept showing me NEW
insights, right in that chapter.
Why would I read something else, when this is
CLEARLY where He wanted me to study?
Funny thing, some time went by, and when
I came across that chapter later… I still got NEW
God’s Word is ETERNAL and INEXHAUSTIBLE.
God’s Word never returns void, and
reading it quickly is FAR BETTER than NOT reading it.
But it’s BETTER to read it SLOWLY, take
it in SLOWLY, allowing it TO SINK IN DEEPLY, and MEDITATING
what we read.
If we ASSIMILATE what we read, we
accomplish A LOT, we GROW a lot, and we INCREASE in wisdom.
If we HAVEN’T ASSIMILATED what we read,
we’ve accomplished little.

RIDING THE BEAST
“…and I saw a woman
A SCARLET COLORED BEAST, full of names of
blasphemy, having seven heads and ten horns…
And the angel said to me: Why did you marvel? I will tell
you THE MYSTERY OF THE WOMAN, AND OF THE BEAST
THAT CARRIES HER, which has the seven heads
and ten horns. (Revelation 17:3, 7)
Revelation 17:16-18 make one thing crystal clear:
Antichrist and his 10-king coalition
WILL HATE THIS HARLOT.
And yet, as we read in the two verses above, DESPITE
that hatred, HE WILL
CARRY HER FOR MOST of the 3˝ year tribulation.
He will not only TOLERATE HER, but grant her special
exemption SPARING the harlot, UNTIL near the end of the
That is when he decides that it’s too risky to continue
their political arrangement, and suddenly turns against
her, vents his anger, and destroys her in ONE HOUR.
And this is done by
God’s predetermined purpose (Revelation
Revelation 17:8 and 17:10-11 tell us that the beast is a
which had already lived, was no longer living in the first
Revelation was written) and who
will emerge from the abyss.
Other Scriptures indicate unequivocally that that former
king is Alexander the Great, considered the greatest
warrior and war strategist that ever lived (Daniel 7:6;
11:28-35; Revelation 13:2, 4, 18).
And Revelation 17:18 clearly refers to Rome as the great
In his role as the Antichrist, Alexander will blaspheme the
God of heaven, blaspheme Jesus, and won’t tolerate any
worship of any deity (real or imagined).
The only worship allowed during his reign will be that of satan and of
the Antichrist himself (Daniel 11:37-38; 2
Thessalonians 2:4; Revelation 13:4)
And yet it is clear from Revelation 18:3, 7, 9-18
that Rome will be allowed to sell its wares and carry on its religious
business as usual during most of Antichrist’s reign.

It may have something to do with Rome being the Empire that
conquered the former Greek Empire.
It may have something to do with Rome adopting and
preserving Greek culture, despite its former military

art and literature.

I know (at the moment) of no Scripture
states the reason for his decision.
But it doesn’t take a genius to figure out THE MAIN REASON:

the former Roman Empire. (Daniel 7:24)

in religion for so long that it has permeated the populace
to the point of becoming not only the dominant religion,
but PART OF THEIR CULTURE.
cunning strategist, Antichrist and his 10 monarch allies
won’t want to further ruffle the feathers of their subjects
by destroying the harlot, and what she may still represent
to them, right off the bat. (Daniel 7:23-24)
After all, they only have 42 months to try to accomplish
their nefarious goals.
That is probably why Antichrist tackles all other potential
adversaries first, leaving the harlot for last. (Daniel
But towards the end
of the tribulation, having vanquished all other
potential adversaries including Iran (Daniel 8:5-7; 19-21),
and facing Christ’s
impending Second Coming, Alexander
suddenly turns on
the harlot and obliterates her from the face of the earth.
The harlot, after all, is still influential, will still
have a large number of followers, and it does profess in
some way, shape or form to “believe in” Jesus the Christ.
From a military point of view, Alexander
CAN’T RISK HAVING
ITS MANY FOLLOWERS TURN AGAINST HIM and potentially
join forces with the returning Christ.
JESUS NEEDS ANY HELP
TO TROUNCE HIM, but that’s the way the carnal, unregenerate
mind reasons. (Revelation 19:20)
This special and TEMPORARY concession to the harlot may
cause many of God’s people (Jews and gentiles who turn to
Christ during the tribulation)
to seek refuge in
They will be warned by God prior to its destruction to
“come out of her”. (Revelation 18:4)
All born-again Roman Catholics will have been raptured 3˝
years before this happens.
Those who remain in Rome and who cut a deal with the beast,
will still be on earth because they had more regard for
their religious institution than for the risen Christ.

10 HORNS IN EUROPE
For years, the prophecy establishment has been telling us
that the NATIONS that first comprised the European
Common Market, which is presently known as the European
Union (EU) will be the 10 horns that will support the
Back in the 1970's, when the number
of member nations was fewer than 10, the theory seemed
somewhat plausible, however, the present European Union is
comprised of 28 member nations, with three more whose
membership is pending approval, bringing them to 31.
But the problems don't end there. Daniel 7:24
says it’s 10 KINGS, NOT 10 NATIONS that will arise AFTER
Antichrist, within the territories of the former Roman
Daniel 2:40-44 clearly says it's 10 KINGS that
will arise, and
that 5 must rule over the Western division of
the former Roman Empire and 5 over the Eastern division.
EVERY Scripture where these 10 kings are mentioned always
refers to them as "horns" or "kings". NOT ONCE are they
So, WHY are they still
teaching it's the EU?
Because C.I. Scofield
taught A CENTURY AGO (before the EU existed) that the
Antichrist would come from Rome, and be supported by 10
nations from Europe.
This, despite the fact the Bible has told us
for 2,500 years that
he comes from Greece, and that the 10 horns are kings, NOT
The prophecy establishment seems to be caught in a
prophetic time warp.
Apparently, these guys have never read the 12th
chapter of Daniel.
Daniel 12:9 clearly says such things WON'T be understood
UNTIL the time of the end.
And Daniel 12:4 says
that at the time of the end "knowledge shall increase".
Contrary to what you've heard, the Roman Empire
WON'T BE revived. There won't be any Caesars, no
Senate, no Pax Romana, nor will the Antichrist government
be headquartered in Rome.
These kings are NOT present monarchs.
Revelation 17:12 indicates that the 10 horns ARE KINGS
who have NOT YET received their kingdoms, and that they
will reign "for one hour" with the Antichrist.
The former Roman Empire was divided into 13 territorial
dioceses (administrations): 6 in the Western Part and 7 in
the Eastern Part.
The three kings who are "uprooted"
are those of: Egypt (Daniel 11:41-43), the East (Israel,
Syria, and Lebanon), (Zechariah 14:1-4) and Rome
That leaves 10 kings over
the territories of the Roman dioceses formerly named:
Spain, Britain, Gaul, Italy, and Africa, in the Western
Division of the empire, and Dacia, Macedonia, Asia,
Thrace, and Pontus, in the Eastern portion.
The territory comprised by those 10 dioceses includes
the modern countries of England, Spain, France,
Belgium, Netherlands, Luxembourg, Switzerland, Italy,
Austria, Slovenia, Croatia, Serbia, Bosnia-Herzegovina,
Albania, Greece, Bulgaria, Yugoslavia, Turkey, Morocco,
Algeria, Tunisia, and Libya.
So, while there will be 10 kings over 10 territorial
regions or dioceses, they will comprise, in terms of
current geography, some 22 nations all surrounding
As you can see, SOME nations
included in those territories ARE members of the EU, and
Some may wonder how "Christian"
England, France, Spain and Italy will turn against Christ
and support the Antichrist.
First of all, the current population of these nations is
largely secular. Secondly, they are more “Christian” in
CULTURE than in FAITH.
Thirdly, by then EVERY REAL Christian will be in
heaven, and only unbelievers will be left on earth.
2 Thessalonians 2:10-12 says:
received not the love of the truth that they might be
saved... God shall send them STRONG DELUSION, that they
should believe a lie: That they all might be damned who
believed not the truth, but had pleasure in
Here's "Exhibit A" of why it's so
important to study what the Bible ACTUALLY says,
instead of gulping down what OTHERS SAY it says.
