"We know that whosoever is born of God sins not; but he that is begotten of God KEEPS HIMSELF, AND THAT WICKED ONE TOUCHES HIM NOT" (1 John 5:18).
There is a place in God where we become UNTOUCHABLE.
Satan can't touch us or bring ANY harm to our lives, nor can any evil spirit.
In the Book of Job we find that Job had a HEDGE OF PROTECTION around his life, which Satan could not penetrate (Job 1:10).
That hedge of protection was Job's faith (TRUST) IN God.
As long as Job TRUSTED God, and had NO FEAR, he was supernaturally protected.
WHEN Job began TO THINK fearful thoughts he allowed fear (SIN) TO ENTER HIS LIFE and TORE THE HEDGE DOWN (Job 3:25).
He became easy prey for Satan.
Faith (TRUST) WORKS BY Love (Galatians 5:6).
Perfect Love CASTS OUT FEAR (1 John 4:18).
When fear is cast out, Satan is cast out and HAS NOTHING to work with.
Again: when fear is CAST OUT (by Perfect Love - Jesus) Satan has NOTHING with which to work.
When we keep ourselves (in our Divine, born-again Nature, who is GOD HIMSELF, LOVE HIMSELF) the evil one touches us not!!!
When we KEEP OURSELVES TRUSTING Jesus and walking in Divine Love, the creep CAN'T TOUCH US!!!
He COULDN'T touch Adam or Eve, UNTIL Adam opened the door by NOT walking in Love (betraying God and his wife) and then Eve swung it all the way open BY NOT TRUSTING God.
Well, wait a minute, it says there "whoever is born of God sins not"...
Isn't NOT sinning A CONDITION for this promise?
Oh, ye of little TRUST!
Haven't you read Romans 14:23?
WHATEVER is NOT of faith (trust) IS SIN!
The cause of ALL sin is NOT TRUSTING God.
That's what happened in Eden. And that's what happens to us.
John talks about Divine Love throughout his marvelous Epistle.
Did John KNOW of what he spoke?
Christian tradition tells us that he was thrown IN A POT OF BOILING OIL by barbarous Roman Emperor Domitian.
Instead of turning into a Jewish fry, he emerged INTACT.
In utter frustration, Domitian then had John exiled to Patmos where Jesus gave him His awesome Revelation.
THIS is THE VICTORY that overcomes the world (1 John 5:4):
THIS is THE VICTORY that overcomes Satan:
EVEN OUR TRUST.

"Praise to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who HAS BLESSED US in the heavenly realms WITH EVERY SPIRITUAL BLESSING in Christ" (Ephesians 1:3).
God says that NO ONE can curse what He has blessed (Numbers 23:20).
He also says that Christ HAS DELIVERED US FROM THE CURSE of the law (Galatians 3:13).
Yet ENTIRE "ministries" have been built around so-called "generational curses".
And these "ministries" are NOT aimed at the unsaved, but to born-again believers.
Of course,if you want to break your "generational curses" that, supposedly, are keeping you from achieving $ucce$$, you have to BUY the CD or DVD series the "minister" hawks in order to find out how to "get deliverance".
There's NOTHING, NOT A WORD in the entire Bible that mentions such thing.
Those who spread that lie PROMOTE FEAR, which is NOT of God (2 Timothy 1:7; 1 John 4:18).
Moreover, they would have you believe that Satan can curse those whom Jesus saved, cleansed THRU HIS BLOOD, sanctified and BLESSED.
They'd have you believe that Satan's curses have more power than God's blessings. Hence making Satan "more powerful" than God.
They DISTORT Exodus 20:5; 34:7; Numbers 14:18; and Deuteronomy 5:9.
In each of those verses God says that He VISITS the iniquity of the fathers upon the children, and upon the children's children, unto the third and to the fourth generation.
IT DOESN'T SAY that God curses children for the iniquity of their fathers.
Or that if a father does something wrong, it brings a curse that is passed down to his children, grandchildren and great grandchildren.
NO SUCH THING IS TAUGHT IN THE BIBLE.
The Hebrew Word poked, means TO VISIT.
When we VISIT someone, we get to see them, and find out what's going on in their lives.
God SEES and is AWARE OF ("visits") THE WICKEDNESS fathers pass down to their children, grandchildren, great grandchildren, and so forth.
He's NOT talking about cursing anyone. In fact the word "curse" (arar) is not even in the text.
He's referring to fathers passing down bad things (iniquity) through words and BY POOR EXAMPLE.
He's talking about parents who TEACH THEIR CHILDREN TO SIN.
Well, you're wrong, WHAT KIND OF PARENT WOULD DO THAT?
If a son has a hard-drinking, womanizing father who repeatedly told him that, in order to be "a real man" one must act that way, IT'S QUITE PROBABLE THAT THE SON WILL ACT IN LIKE MANNER, SINCE HE LEARNED IT FROM HIS FATHER.
It's also quite likely that the son WILL PASS THAT SINFUL WAY OF THINKING AND LIVING DOWN TO HIS SON, AND SO ON...
If a little girl had a lying or promiscuous mother who set a bad example for her, it's quite probable that, when she reaches adolescence, she will lie and be a slut just like mom.
That's what it's talking about. Those verses were intended TO MOTIVATE PARENTS TO INSTRUCT THEIR CHILDREN IN RIGHTEOUSNESS AND SET A GOOD EXAMPLE to be passed down to their children and future generations: Nothing more, nothing less.
These verses DON'T SAY that children are BLAMED FOR the wickedness of their parents or ancestors, either.
Ezekiel 18:20 says THE VERY OPPOSITE:
"The soul that sins, it shall die. THE SON SHALL NOT BEAR THE INIQUITY OF THE FATHER, NEITHER SHALL THE FATHER BEAR THE INIQUITY OF THE SON: the righteousness of the righteous shall be upon him, and the wickedness of the wicked shall be upon him".
Can't say it any clearer than that.
The other Scripture they distort is Matthew 12:43-45:
"When the unclean spirit is gone OUT OF A MAN, he walks through dry places, seeking rest, and finds none.
Then he said, I will return into my house FROM WHERE I CAME OUT; and when he is come, he finds it empty, swept, and garnished.
Then he goes, and takes with himself seven other spirits more wicked than himself, and they enter in and dwell there: and the last state OF THAT MAN is worse than the first. Even so shall it be also unto THIS wicked generation".
They point out that the word for "house" in this passage, oikon, can also figuratively mean "family". That much is true.
What is NOT TRUE is that the evil spirit that guy had will possess or oppress other members of his family. It doesn't say that ANYWHERE. THAT is an ABSOLUTE LIE.
The text is quite clear that THE STATE OF THAT MAN (not the members of his family) is worse than before.
It DOESN'T SAY that the evil spirit will be passed down to that man's future generations.
Again, the Greek is painstakingly clear, "so it shall be unto THIS wicked generation",NOT to FUTURE generations.
In context, Jesus had berated THE GENERATION of His day, first for blaspheming the Holy Spirit by rejecting Him and attributing His works to Beelzebub (Matthew 12:34), secondly for requesting a sign as a "condition" to believe in Him (Matthew 12:39,40), thirdly for their unbelief (Matthew 12:41) and fourthly for rejecting His Word and Wisdom (Matthew 12:42).
Jesus spoke those words ONLY about THIS (His) generation, NOT about future generations.
He spoke those words BEFORE GOING TO CALVARY.
AFTER Calvary, demon possession is quite rare, since Jesus defeated Satan and every evil spirit.
AFTER Calvary, demons can't just come and possess or oppress whoever they want.
One would have to ACTIVELY, PERSISTENTLY and PREMEDITATEDLY SEEK TO BE POSSESSED.
NO BORN-AGAIN child of God can be possessed by Satan or by an evil spirit, PERIOD.
If that were possible, it would mean that the evil spirit is stronger than Jesus (perish the very idea) and that he can kick Jesus out of you and wrest Jesus' possession (you) away from Him.
You want my advice? Give your whole heart and life to Jesus Christ,get FILLED WITH HIS HOLY SPIRIT,LIVE IN HIM AND FOR HIM, walk in His love, with NO FEAR, and throw those stupid CD's where they belong:
IN THE TRASH.

WHERE YOUR TREASURE IS
"A good man OUT OF THE GOOD TREASURE OF THE HEART BRINGS FORTH GOOD THINGS: and an evil man out of the evil treasure brings forth evil things" (Matthew 12:35)
A frequent accusation leveled against those who preach the TRUE Gospel of God's Grace is that we do not preach against sinning.
Sure we do.
We just don't make SIN the MAIN FOCUS of our preaching.
We make JESUS -- who is BOTH the SOLUTION TO sin, and the One who REMOVED ALL SIN FOR ALL TIME -- the MAIN FOCUS.
And I, for one, make NO APOLOGY for it.
God's Word says, clear as daylight, that once we receive Jesus, our sins are forgiven, and WE SHOULD HAVE NO MORE CONSCIOUSNESS OF SIN (Hebrews 10:2).
It also says that Jesus has RECONCILED US TO God the Father, and that He NO LONGER COUNTS ANY SIN AGAINST US (2 Corinthians 5:19).
There are those who make sin and the Law the focus of their teaching.
I've never been in that camp and, by God's Grace, NEVER WILL BE.
I do not get up each morning and say to myself:
"I will not fall into idolatry today, nor take God's Name in vain, nor forget the true Sabbath (who is Jesus Himself and not a 24-hour day), I won't dishonor my father or mother, I won't kill, won't commit sexual immorality, won't lie and won't covet".
To do that not only makes us CONSCIOUS OF sin, but fosters FEAR.
After all, God's Word ALSO SAYS that if we break JUST ONE commandment, we are guilty of breaking the entire Law! (James 2:8-10).
Sin consciousness MAKES US SIN MORE, NOT LESS!
The first thoughts that come into my mind are always about Jesus.
My days BEGIN WITH Jesus, and END with Jesus: glory to Him from everlasting to everlasting!
I do my best to STAY FOCUSED ON JESUS WITHIN ME throughout the day.
What I focus on at the start of each day, and throughout the day, is how wonderful Jesus is, HOW MUCH He loves me, and HOW MUCH I love and adore Him.
I start off the day with an attitude of Love and PRAISE toward Him, and try to stay in that frame of spirit and mind throughout the day.
While we all, at some point, fall short of God's glory because our minds have not been totally renewed, I find that such attitude KEEPS SIN AT BAY.
Focus on Jesus and you will RARELY sin.
When you do, you have TOTAL CONFIDENCE that your sin(s) is/are ALREADY FORGIVEN (1 John 1:7).
Focus on sin and commandments, and YOU WILL SIN A LOT.
You'll also LIVE IN FEAR of breaking ANY commandment and, hence, breaking God's law.
Temptation will be CONSTANTLY knocking on your door.
And you WILL NEVER BE SAVED because Salvation is obtained BY GRACE ONLY THROUGH FAITH (TRUST) ONLY (Ephesians 2:8-9).
FAITH (TRUST) IS THE OPPOSITE OF fear.
Salvation IS NOT ATTAINED through "commandment keeping". NEVER HAS BEEN AND NEVER WILL BE.
Focus on commandments, and CONDEMNATION WILL HOVER OVER YOUR HEAD like a dark cloud on an overcast day.
That's why Jesus taught that not just the Torah, but THE WHOLE BIBLE - ALL the Law and ALL the prophets - hang on that ONE GREATEST commandment:
Love the Lord your God with ALL your heart, and with ALL your soul, and with ALL YOUR MIND (Matthew 22:37).
Focus on the Jesus WHO LIVES INSIDE, IN YOUR HEART, and He will bring forth GOOD THINGS out of you.
Get to KNOW the Son and He will make you FREE INDEED (John 8:36).
Focus on Jesus, His Goodness (Grace) and His Love, and you won't ever have to worry about sin or commandments.

OOOPS! I FORGOT THE KIDNEYS !
Every believer in Christ MUST KNOW WHERE his/her spirit is located.
The Bible says unless we are born OF THE SPIRIT, we cannot enter God's Kingdom (John 3:5).
It's in our spirit that Jesus LIVES by His Spirit (1 Corinthians 6:17).
The Bible COMMANDS US to "walk in the spirit" (Galatians 5:16):
The Bible COMMANDS US to "LIVE in the spirit" (Romans 8:2; Galatians 5:25; Philippians 3:3):
HOW can we LIVE IN something whose location we don't know and can't even find?
HOW can we LIVE IN something that we TOTALLY IGNORE?
... That we can't even detect and to which, consequently, we CAN'T PAY ANY ATTENTION?
I've taught often on where the human spirit is located:
According to Daniel 7:15, it's in "the MIDST of"our bodies.
According to Jesus it's IN OUR BELLY or "innermost being" (John 7:38-39)
This is all true and biblical.
However, the Bible mentions another part of the human anatomy WHERE THE SPIRIT IS
ALSO LOCATED and WHICH IS ALSO IN "the MIDST of our bodies":
Every time I teach on it, I make a mental note to include THE KIDNEYS, and then forget to do so!
The King James Version of the Bible usually renders the Hebrew Kilyah and the Greek nephrous as "reins", while other translations use the words "mind", "inward parts", or "conscience", but both words literally mean "kidneys".
That's why a doctor who specializes in treatment of kidneys and kidney disease is called nephrologist.
When Jesus says in Revelation 2:23: "...and all the churches shall know that I am He who searches the minds (nephrous) and hearts (kardias)", He's literally saying He searches the hearts and the kidneys!
Similarly, when David says in Psalm 16:7:
"I will bless the LORD, who has given me counsel: my heart (kilyah) also instructs me in the night seasons".
He literally says "MY KIDNEYS also instruct me in the night".
There are a number of other Scriptures that use the word "kidneys" in similar fashion referring (figuratively) to a person's deepest inward parts:
Job 16:13; 19:27; Psalms 7:9; 26:2; 73:21; 139:13; Proverbs 23:16; Isaiah 11:5; Jeremiah 11:20; 12:2; 17:10; 20:12; Lamentations 3:13.
What's even more interesting: Most of these verses speak of the "heart" and the "kidneys" as DISTINCT AND SEPARATE PARTS of our SPIRITS (innermost being).
Oh, dear God... I just realized as I typed this that the "kidneys" are what Romans 8:27 refers to as "THE MIND OF the spirit". It's the part of the human spirit THAT THINKS.
I've used that mind FOR YEARS when I wanted to communicate with God (other than in unknown tongues) and NOT ALLOW Satan to intercept my part of the discussion.
The Holy Spirit has even prompted me, at times, TO SWITCH from the natural mind (in my head) to the spirit's mind (in my midst) and, now I know more specifically, in the STOMACH-KIDNEY area!
Don't give me that strange look... These things ARE in the Bible, and have been there for THOUSANDS of years.
It's too bad that YOUR RELIGION never mentions them.
Besides the testimony of Scripture, those who EXPERIENCE Christ on a regular basis, KNOW INSTINCTIVELY that it is so:
It's from the kidney area that we experience that thrilling sense of "elevation", when we commune intimately with Christ, almost as though we're floating or suspended effortlessly in mid-air.
So, the spirit is located in our stomachs, but also in our entire MIDDLE SECTION, all the way around, into our kidney area.
Since true worshipers worship God IN SPIRIT (John 4:23-24), next time your worship Jesus do so from the MIDDLE of your body, from the stomach AND... don't forget, FROM THE KIDNEYS!

"BE ANXIOUS FOR NOTHING; BUT IN EVERYTHING by prayer and supplication WITH THANKSGIVING let your requests be made known unto God.
And the peace of God, which passes all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus." (Philippians 4:6-7)
Thanksgiving is a uniquely American holiday, rooted in our history. However, NO MATTER WHERE WE LIVE, it's ALWAYS good to praise and thank God for His many blessings.
Therefore, I invite all believers IN ALL NATIONS to participate in GIVING THANKS to the Father, Son and Holy Spirit:
Heavenly Father, in Jesus' Name we humble ourselves before your Almighty Presence and WE THANK YOU for your love, Grace and mercy.
THANK YOU for making provision for our sins, in our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, before the foundation of the world (Revelation 13:8).
THANK YOU for the many blessings you bestow on us: good health, family, friends, homes, jobs, and for our daily bread.
We ask you to supply the spiritual, physical and emotional needs of all throughout the world, especially the needy.
THANK YOU, Jesus, for being willing to die on the cross for my-our sins.
THANK YOU that you took even the hell and the punishment that I deserved.
THANK YOU for FOREVER reconciling us with the Father (2 Corinthians 5:19).
THANK YOU for REMOVING ALL SIN - FOR ALL TIME (1 John 3:5).
Glory to you, Lord Jesus!
THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU...
THANK YOU for your Resurrection and Ascension.
THANK YOU that you are sited at the Father's Right Hand and that YOU EVER LIVE to make intercession for us.
If you, precious Jesus, are FOR US, WHO- in heaven, hell OR EARTH - can be against us?
THANK YOU for sending your most Holy Spirit to our hearts.
THANK YOU, Holy Spirit: You are so wonderful and necessary!
THANK YOU for leading us to Jesus.
THANK YOU for your priceless guidance and revelation: for "those who are LED BY the Spirit of God ARE the sons of God" (Romans 8:14).
We give you glory, Almighty God: Father, Son and Holy Spirit, NOW AND FOREVER.
From everlasting to everlasting YOU - and YOU ALONE - are God.
THANK YOU for making us partakers OF YOUR DIVINE Nature.
There is NO GOD BESIDE You. (Isaiah 45:5))
We offer you OUR BOUNDLESS LOVE, ADORATION, PRAISE AND THANKSGIVING.
You, oh Lord, are worthy OF THE HIGHEST praise.
Glory to God in heaven AND ON EARTH...
Holy, Holy, Holy, Lord God Almighty, HEAVEN AND EARTH ARE FILLED WITH your glory...
Wonderful God and Savior, be exalted ABOVE THE HEAVENS, and ABOVE ALL - FOREVER.
In Jesus' Holy Name. Amen.
Lord, bless each and every one of our brothers and sisters throughout the world: bless the homes and families, give them health, prosperity, success, favor, protection and all manner of blessings.
We especially remember our brothers and sisters who are being persecuted, exiled, violated, tortured and murdered, in places like the Middle East, Africa and Asia.
Oh Jesus, oh precious Holy Spirit, be with them in A VERY SPECIAL WAY: PROTECT THEM from harm, supply ALL their needs, let them KNOW - in the deepest recesses of their beings - that they are NOT alone. That you are WITH THEM ALWAYS - even unto the end of this miserable age.
That we are with them IN SPIRIT, as well as in our hearts and prayers. Give them your peace in the midst of turmoil, and your truly amazing Grace, to STAND FOR YOU UNTIL THE VERY END.
Oh Jesus, receive them in glory.
Brothers and sisters, the Love, Grace and Peace of our most gracious God be with you on this blessed holiday and always.
In the Name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. Amen. Amen.

"But now has GOD SET EVERY ONE OF THE MEMBERS in the Body,AS IT HAS PLEASED HIM...And THE EYE CANNOT SAY UNTO THE HAND, I HAVE NO NEED OF YOU: NOR AGAIN THE HEAD (Jesus) TO THE FEET, I HAVE NO NEED OF YOU.
Nay, much more those members of the body, WHICH SEEM TO BE MORE FEEBLE, ARE NECESSARY" (1 Corinthians 12:18, 21-22)
Every once in a while I come across a video excoriating this brother in Christ.
He is regularly called a false prophet and there are a number of videos that call him satanic.
Others dislike his teaching style, or the fact that, before he launched his own ministry and became well-known, he used to work as Oral Roberts' chauffeur and pilot.
I HAVE BEEN HIGHLY CRITICAL of "word of faith" teachers, INCLUDING Ken. That's NOT LIKELY to change anytime soon.
And I have INTENSE DISLIKE for ANYTHING or ANYONE associated with Oral Roberts.
However, it's one thing to attack A FALSE DOCTRINE, it's another to call a brother WHO PREACHES THE GOSPEL - HOWEVER MISGUIDED SOME OF HIS OTHER TEACHING MAY BE - AN INSTRUMENT OF SATAN.
I have attacked the doctrine, and labeled some of these preachers greedy and con artists (which they ARE), but I can't recall a single instance when I've called ANYONE who preaches the Gospel of Grace and brings people to saving knowledge of Jesus either a "false prophet" or an instrument of Satan.
And if I have EVER done it, I humbly and publicly apologize for it and REPENT before Jesus and you.
I have NO PROBLEM with the "word of faith" teaching on Salvation, being filled with the Spirit, studying Scripture, or the power of the Word SPOKEN IN THE SPIRIT.
(If it's NOT spoken in the Spirit, it's useless and merely vain repetition).
However, their teachings on so-called "tithing" and "give in order to get" - as if God's favor could be EARNED or BOUGHT - are NOT ONLY UNBIBLICAL, self-serving, and inconsiderate but, to put it bluntly, AN ABOMINATION.
I would be a liar and a hypocrite if I said that I'm NOT REPULSED by the latter.
There's also MUCH contradiction in their teaching. And their NON-STOP emphasis on money and material stuff is also UNBIBLICAL and downright offensive.
However, the Holy Spirit spoke CLEARLY to my spirit that I need to write this message. And when my Jesus says "jump" my usual answer is "HOW HIGH?"
Even when I DON'T LIKE the assignment...
AS WRONG, deceitful, contradictory, and manipulative as their teaching on giving and "tithing" may be, as DISHONEST as some of their self-promoting tactics are, I need to acknowledge and EXPRESS MY GRATITUDE to Kenneth Copeland for ONE HUGE BLESSING:
It was Kenneth who led me MANY YEARS AGO - when I was still a babe in Christ - to receiving the INFILLING of the Holy Spirit.
He quoted Luke 11:13: "if you, being evil, KNOW HOW TO GIVE GOOD GIFTS TO YOUR CHILDREN, HOW MUCH MORE will your Father in heaven give the Holy Spirit to those who ask him!"...
He said if we wanted to be filled with the Holy Spirit, (he called it "baptized" - wrong terminology, but I knew what he meant) we needed to meditate that Scripture, believe it, and then CONFIDENTLY ASK GOD TO FILL ME WITH HIS HOLY SPIRIT, FULLY EXPECTING HIM TO DO IT.
Long story short: I did, and God did.
Praise His Name forever!
I will never accept the "word of faith" doctrine of endless confessions, "sowing seeds" (meaning MONEY) or their lavish lifestyles at the expense of DUMB sheep with lotto mentalities... Or their callous disregard for those they hurt, confuse and swindle...
However, for being filled with the Spirit, which is PRICELESS, I MUST GIVE CREDIT WHERE CREDIT IS DUE...
Therefore, THANK YOU, Father, Son and Holy Spirit for FILLING me with your most Holy Spirit.
And THANK YOU, Kenneth Copeland, for accurately instructing me on HOW TO BE FILLED with the Holy Spirit.
The great irony is that it was that WONDERFUL Holy Spirit who soon after made me realize - from the Scriptures - that the so-called prosperity Gospel is WRONG ON SO MANY areas.
I am confident that Jesus will straighten all of us out soon enough, MYSELF INCLUDED.
But no matter HOW MUCH I may dislike that teaching, no matter HOW MUCH I can prove with the Bible that it's a bunch of hogwash... I still have to acknowledge that - where SALVATION is concerned -- Ken preaches the true Gospel of Grace, leads people to being filled with the Spirit, and teaches victory in Jesus, not defeat.
There are brothers and sisters who out of ignorance, jealousy or carnality TAKE THEIR DISPLEASURE TO THE EXTREME and call ANYONE who DOESN'T see eye to eye with them "false prophet" or "servant of Satan" - even though that person preaches the true Gospel of Salvation.
THAT PRACTICE NEEDS TO STOP.
It's one thing to EXPOSE false doctrine, it's another thing to call a born-again child of God, WASHED IN THE BLOOD OF JESUS - regardless of how unsavory his antics may be -- a false prophet or son of Satan.
As much as we may DISLIKE the messenger, and LARGE PORTIONS OF HIS MESSAGE, Satan DOESN'T PREACH THE GOSPEL. And Satan DOESN'T tell anyone how to be Spirit-filled.
Never has and never will.

THE HOLY SPIRIT AND SALVATION
There is NO SALVATION in ANYONE BUT Jesus (John 14:6).
There's NO OTHER NAME by which we can be saved (Acts 4:11-12)
And there's NO SALVATION WITHOUT His Holy Spirit.
The Holy Spirit speaks to our hearts and shows us our need for a Savior.
The Holy Spirit DRAWS US to Jesus (John 6:44).
The Holy Spirit COMES TO LIVE IN OUR HEARTS, ALONG WITH THE FATHER AND THE SON, when we GIVE OUR HEARTS TO JESUS and become born-again (John 14:17,23).
The Holy Spirit TEACHES US "all things" (1 John 2:27-28).
The Holy Spirit LEADS US and guides us to ALL the Truth (Jesus) as well as to SPIRITUAL-BIBLICAL TRUTH, and SHOWS US THINGS TO COME (John 16:13).
The Holy Spirit is our HELPER (John 16:7).
The Holy Spirit ALWAYS glorifies Jesus (John 16:14).
The Holy Spirit baptizes (immerses) EVERY born-again believer into the mystical Body of Christ (1 Corinthians 12:13).
The Holy Spirit is our Royal Seal and Divine Guarantee of Redemption (2 Corinthians 1:22; 5:5).
The Bible is also clear that ANYONE who DOES NOT HAVE the Holy Spirit is NOT of Christ (Romans 8:9).
We CANNOT BE SAVED APART FROM God's Holy Spirit.
However, just like a clay pot can have SOME water, or the same pot can be FILLED with water...
Some SAVED people HAVE the Spirit.
Some SAVED people are FILLED with the Spirit.
The FILLING of the Spirit is a wonderful experience, usually accompanied by a tingly feeling of extreme joy and speaking in tongues (Acts 2:4; 10:44-46).
While it's IMPOSSIBLE to be saved WITHOUT HAVING the Holy Spirit INSIDE, BEING FILLED with the Spirit IS NOT - repeat, NOT - necessary for Salvation.
That means that speaking in tongues IS NOT NECESSARY for Salvation (1 Corinthians 12:30).
The EXPERIENCE of being FILLED with the Holy Spirit and speaking in tongues is EXTREMELY DESIRABLE and USEFUL- but NOT essential to Salvation.
I'm emphasizing it and stating it as clearly as I know how because we get this question CONSTANTLY.
Having said that,I don't get WHY ANY believer would settle for ONLY "SOME" of the Spirit when they could have THE FULLNESS of the Spirit (Ephesians 5:18).
Just like I don't know why anyone would want to experience SOME of Christ as opposed to ALL of Christ.
Having experienced the FILLING of the Spirit, and relying CONSTANTLY on the Spirit's input, revelation and guidance, I can't even imagine life without Him.
But to those who are born-again and for whatever religious reason DO NOT WANT to be filled with the Spirit or are downright afraid to speak in tongues and/or to fully surrender to the Spirit, no need to worry:
He won't force His way into your heart or life.
To sum up: ALL who are saved - without exception - HAVE the Holy Spirit in their hearts.
NOT all who are saved speak in tongues, THOUGH I HIGHLY RECOMMEND IT.
Jesus had/has the Spirit WITHOUT MEASURE (John 3:34).
It was the Holy Spirit who ANOINTED Jesus as God's Messiah, and enabled Him to preach deliverance to the captives, recovery of sight to the blind and to set at liberty those who have been bruised (battered and oppressed) by the devil (Luke 4:18-20).
If JESUS needed the Holy Spirit to carry out His earthly ministry HOW MUCH MORE these mortal, pitiful lumps of flesh?

POST-TRIB IS PAGAN
"But EVIL MEN AND SEDUCERS SHALL GROW WORSE AND WORSE, DECEIVING, AND BEING DECEIVED.
But CONTINUE IN THE THINGS WHICH YOU HAVE LEARNED AND HAVE BEEN ASSURED OF, KNOWING of whom you have learned them;
And that FROM A CHILD YOU HAVE KNOWN THE HOLY SCRIPTURES, WHICH ARE ABLE TO MAKE YOU WISE UNTO SALVATION through faith which is in Christ Jesus.
ALL SCRIPTURE is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable FOR DOCTRINE, FOR REPROOF, FOR CORRECTION, FOR INSTRUCTION in righteousness".
(2 Timothy 3:13-16)
I was wondering WHEN someone would ask this question:
If we have CLEAR, UNEQUIVOCAL evidence of the pre-trib Rapture in Old and New Testaments (Zechariah 14:5; Revelation 7:9,14).
If we have CLEAR, UNEQUIVOCAL EVIDENCE of it in the Gospels.
If we have CLEAR EVIDENCE of it in the Epistles.
And SLAM-DUNK PROOF in the Book of Revelation...
If the Early Church believed in the pre-trib Rapture...
WHY on earth did organized Christianism in the FOURTH CENTURY CHOOSE - arbitrarily - to believe against ALL the biblical evidence - in a post-trib Rapture?
Why did they DOGMATICALLY preach a post-trib Rapture?
WHY did they even TRANSLATE certain portions of the Bible capriciously to ACCOMMODATE their pagan belief?
For instance, WHY did they INCORRECTLY translate Matthew 24:29 "immediately AFTER", when they CORRECTLY translated THE SAME Greek WORD meta as "WITH" in the TWO FOLLOWING VERSES (Matthew 24:30,31)?
Answer: to please the pagan rulers and pagan society they had joined.
To please the Emperor who had just made them legal and bestowed all kinds of privileges on the Roman institution that we know today as Roman Catholicism.
For the first three centuries of the Christian Era the Church was A SPIRITUAL ENTITY, as Christ intended it to be (John 3:5; Romans 8:9).
Jesus said that He would "build His Church" and that "the gates of hell" would NOT prevail against it (Matthew 16:18).
He NEVER SAID that a Roman Emperor would "build His Church".
He NEVER SAID His Church was a RELIGIOUS INSTITUTION.
He NEVER SAID it would be headquartered in Rome.
His Church was born, and ALWAYS headquartered in, Jerusalem NOT Rome (Acts 2:1-6; 8:1; 15:4).
If you had been ruthlessly persecuted for 300 years and, then, all of a sudden the Roman Emperor turns the tables on his murderous predecessors AND SHOWS UNPRECEDENTED FAVOR to Christians...
If he proposes to institutionalize the Christian faith, turn it into a religion, so it could be "legal" throughout his empire, and all he requires in exchange is orthodoxy...
Would you tell that Emperor that Christ might reappear NEXT YEAR and that his reign WOULD END, and BE REPLACED BY Jesus' reign on earth?
Or would you seek to PLEASE HIM by saying that, yes, Christ will return "someday" in the FAAAR DISTANT FUTURE... NO ONE KNOWS WHEN... and, by the time He returns, will pose no threat to Constantine's reign or, for that matter, to the Roman Empire?
Would you say that God's Kingdom on earth would manifest WHEN JESUS RETURNS TO REIGN with his (raptured) saints?
Wouldn't it be more pleasing to the Emperor, who has shown so much "kindness", to say that God's Kingdom was the same as Constantine's kingdom, and that God's Kingdom on earth is really the "Christian" institution that he created AS PART OF HIS RULING EMPIRE?
WHY ON EARTH do you think they invented the FALSE, UNBIBLICAL office of "Pope"?
Constantine was POLITICAL Emperor over his empire, and the "Pope" was the RELIGIOUS Emperor of the SUPPOSED "Kingdom of Christ" on earth, which was PART OF that empire.
WHY ELSE, would the Pope call himself "the Vicar (representative, substitute) OF Christ" on earth?
Wouldn't it make more sense to say that the Millennium is NOT some blessed Era in which Jesus Himself will rule the earth, but rather that it is synonymous with the CURRENT Emperor's kingdom?
Thus inventing the FALSE amillennialist doctrine?
That is PRECISELY what happened:
The post-trib Rapture is simply ONE MORE WAY in which the corrupt 4th century religious hierarchy COMPROMISED the Christian Message, to merge with the pagan society it sought to appease.
Just like they turned Mary into a goddess to substitute for Venus-Aphrodite.
Just like they invented the mother-child cult of Mary holding baby Jesus to substitute for Venus holding her baby Aeneas.
Just like they invented that Mary is the "Blessed Mother of the Church" as Venus was "the Divine Mother of all Romans" through her son Aeneas.
Just like they COMPROMISED THE GOSPEL itself by making Salvation CONTINGENT ON WORKS, rather than on faith in Christ ONLY (Ephesians 2:8-9).
This, despite Paul's warning, that ANYONE - even an angel from heaven - that preaches ANOTHER Gospel is ANATHEMA (Galatians 1:8).
This, despite Paul's clear teaching that if Salvation is BY GRACE, then IT IS NO LONGER BY WORKS, OTHERWISE "GRACE IS NO MORE GRACE" (Romans 11:6).
It's one thing to believe in a post-trib Rapture OUT OF IGNORANCE, simply because that's what we've been taught (more like brainwashed) by our denomination:
It's ANOTHER THING to DELIBERATELY IGNORE the overwhelming, ironclad biblical evidence for pre-trib, and SIDE WITH PAGANS.
Those who teach post-trib can call themselves "evangelical" ‘til their lying faces turn Cardinal red:THEY ARE TEACHING ROMAN Catholic doctrine INVENTED in the 4th century A.D.
Those who teach post-trib are teaching WRONG, UNBIBLICAL doctrine and PAGANISM.
Those who do it KNOWINGLY, AND DELIBERATELY will answer to Christ for it.
Those who teach post-trib ARE DECEIVING OTHERS as well as themselves.

HOW TO IMPRESS GOD
Do you think for a moment that God is impressed with today's Church?
Do you think He's impressed BY HUGE BUILDINGS, auditoriums, networks, recording studios or TV shows?
With so-called "Christian leaders", who lack vision and leadership? Who have divided Jesus' Body into so many opposing fragments it's almost unrecognizable?
Is He impressed, perhaps, with all the theological degrees THE FLESH bestows? With all the "Masters" and "Doctors" of Divinity who boastfully go around DISPENSING STERILE RELIGION... but wouldn't recognize God's Spirit if He spit in their BLIND eyes?
Is He impressed with the Church's teachings? With the "kingdom now", "give-to-get", "work for salvation", British Israelism, liberation theology, "name-it-and-claim-it" materialistic, legalistic heresies?
Or is He impressed by opulent lifestyles? By how many mansions they own? Or how much money they have in the bank? Or how many books or CD's they've sold? Or how many Rolexes they wear? How many private airplanes they own? How many Bentleys they drive? How many people attend their congregation?.Or the number of bodyguards in their personal entourage?
God IS SPIRIT. All those things ARE WORLDLY. NOTHING of this world impresses Him.
Compared to God, Bill Gates, Warren Buffett, George Soros, Oprah Winfrey, and Donald Trump -- put together -- ARE PAUPERS!
Compared to heavenly Jerusalem, Saint Peter's Basilica, the Dome of the Rock, Buckingham Palace and the Taj Mahal are UNSIGHTLY EYESORES.
These are nothing but MANIFESTATIONS OF FLESH. Dismal, CARNAL attempts TO SUBSTITUTE FOR THE LACK OF SPIRIT AND POWER: Pitiful smoke screens to hide our pathetic spiritual nakedness (Revelation 3:17-20).
These things may impress the world. The may impress carnal Christians, who prefer style over substance, flesh instead of Jesus. They DON'T impress God, IN THE LEAST.
So, WHAT impresses God?
JESUS impresses Him
His HOLY Spirit impresses Him.
If you want to impress God you MUST RECEIVE Jesus into your heart as ONLY and ALL-SUFFICIENT Lord, God and Savior.
You must allow His Spirit, inside yourself, to express and manifest thru you.
Life in the spirit, life in Christ Jesus, impresses Him.
You must allow the "inner Jesus" to live and incarnate in you.
Because THE ONLY "THING" that impresses God is... Himself.

UNDER A CURSE
"For AS MANY AS ARE OF THE WORKS OF THE LAW ARE UNDER THE CURSE: for it is written, CURSED IS EVERY ONE that CONTINUES NOT in ALL THINGS which are written in the book of the law to do them" (Galatians 3:10).
"For WHOEVER SHALL KEEP THE WHOLE LAW, AND YET OFFEND IN ONE POINT,HE IS GUILTY OF ALL.
For he that said: Do not commit adultery, also said: Do not kill. Now if you don't commit adultery, yet you kill, YOU HAVE BECOME A TRANSGRESSOR OF THE LAW" (James 2:10-11).
You can't say it ANY CLEARER THAN THAT.
The Word of God is clear that by the works of the law NO ONE is justified (Romans 3:20; Galatians 2:16).
Furthermore, those who are "OF THE WORKS of the Law" are UNDER THE CURSE", as we just read above.
Why would ANYONE want to live under the curse?
WHY would some who call themselves "Christian" prefer THE BONDAGE of Law to the FREEDOM of the Spirit that Jesus procured?
Yet that is EXACTLY where many so-called Christians are today.
DECEIVED AND BRAINWASHED by some recently invented denomination that promises "salvation" and claims to be "the only true church" when ALL THEY DO is put you, dear soul for whom Jesus died, BACK UNDER THE CURSE from which He redeemed you with no less than His own, priceless Blood (1 Peter 1:18-19).
"Christ HAS REDEEMED US FROM THE CURSE OF THE LAW...That THE BLESSING of Abraham might come on the Gentiles through Jesus Christ; that we might receive...the Spirit THROUGH FAITH" (Galatians 3:13-14).
The Spirit, "Christian" friends, is the GUARANTEE (seal) of our Redemption (Romans 8:9; Ephesians 1:13-14).
If you have the GUARANTEE, from God Himself,you need nothing else TO KNOW that you're ETERNALLY SAVED (John 3:5; Ephesians 1:13-14).
If you received the Holy Spirit (God's PERSONAL GUARANTEE of Redemption) BY FAITH, WHY go back to a Law that never saved ANYONE?
WHY do you insist on putting yourself UNDER THE CURSE?
Is that recently invented religion - THAT WILL SOON DISAPPEAR and be FORGOTTEN - worth YOUR ETERNAL SALVATION?
Invite Jesus into your heart and TRUST HIM ALONE to save you.
There is Salvation in NO ONE ELSE. There is NO OTHER NAME by which we can be saved (Acts 4:12).

DID GOD EXPECT ANYONE TO KEEP THE LAW ?
When God gave Israel the Law at Sinai, did He expect ANY NATURAL HUMAN to ever keep it?
Well, WHAT A DUMB question!
Of course, He did! Why would God have given the Law if He didn't intend for them to keep it?
1. Because He wanted to PROVE TO THEM - beyond a shadow of a doubt -- that they'd NEVER be able to keep it.
2. Because He wanted to PROVE TO THEM that they COULD NEVER save themselves from sin, death and damnation, or even HELP in the process.
3. Because He wanted them to be so thoroughly convinced OF THEIR TOTAL IMPOTENCE to save themselves, or to earn-merit their way into His Kingdom, that they would TOTALLY THROW THEMSELVES AT HIS MERCY.
4. So that they would put THEIR ENTIRE TRUST in the Savior that He would send them 1,500 years later.
Well, that's not what MY RELIGION teaches!
God gave the Law so that Israelites would keep it!
Then WHY DID HE, as PART OF that Law, PRESCRIBE ANIMAL SACRIFICES FOR SIN? (Leviticus chapter 4)
And, not just once, but TWICE A DAY... EACH AND EVERY DAY...YEAR, AFTER YEAR, AFTER YEAR... NON-STOP (Exodus 29:39; 30:7-8; Numbers 28:4).
If Israelites had kept the Law they WOULD HAVE NEVER SINNED.
If they kept the Law and NEVER SINNED, they would need NO ANIMAL SACRIFICES FOR their sins.
If God EXPECTED Israel to keep the Law, and NOT sin, then WHY ON EARTH would He ORDER those sacrifices FOR SIN?
1. Because He NEVER EXPECTED them to keep the Law.
2. Because God KNEW IN ADVANCE that they'd break it - REPEATEDLY.
3. Because God knew FULL WELL when He gave them the Law that trying to keep it would be an exercise in futility.
4. It was USELESS to try to obey the Law 3.500 years ago. That's why He gave them ANIMAL blood to temporarily cover sin.
Just like it's a TOTAL WASTE of time and energy to even try to live under the Sinai Law today.
That's why He gave us THE BLOOD OF JESUS, which removed ALL sin -- once and for all (Hebrews 9:12,26: 10:14; 1 John 3:5)
5. Because God wanted His people to realize that NO ONE BUT JESUS has ever fulfilled God's Law (Matthew 5:17-18).
AND NO ONE BUT JESUS ever will.
That's why TODAY -- AFTER Jesus' death, Resurrection and Ascension -- God DOESN'T EXPECT ANYONE to live under the Law.
God DOESN'T WANT ANYONE to live under Law, because THE LAW CAN'T SAVE YOU.
ONLY JESUS saves.
Those who want to live UNDER the Law, make Jesus' Blood INSUFFICIENT TO SAVE.
His Sacrifice is NOT enough to save since, according to them, it must be accompanied by Law keeping.
If Jesus' Sacrifice ALONE is NOT sufficient to save, then we treat the sacred, sinless Blood of Jesus as IMPURE, and NO BETTER than animal blood to remove sin (Hebrews 10:8-10).
Those who do this ARE HEADED STRAIGHT TO HELL.
I don't care HOW MUCH RELIGION THEY GOT, I don't care WHO founded their religion.
Because we know that animal blood didn't do the job, and if the Blood of Jesus DIDN'T get the job done either, WHAT ON EARTH WILL YOU OFFER GOD TO ATONE FOR YOUR SINS? (Hebrews 10:26-31)
Romans 13:9-10: TRYING TO keep the law is natural AND BRINGS DEATH.
FULFILLING the Law is SUPERNATURAL, and brings Life.

WHO IS ABADDON ?
Abaddon, as he is known in Hebrew, or Apollyon, in Greek, meaning "the Destroyer" seems to capture the attention, and IMAGINATION, of many Christians.
Entire books and eschatological scenarios have been fabricated around THIS BEING mentioned ONLY in Revelation 9:11.
Even in the 19th century, some wanted to make Napoleon Bonaparte the Antichrist based on the similarity between the names "Napoleon" and "Apollyon".
Although Apollyon is mentioned ONLY ONCE in the New Testament, the name Abaddon is mentioned several times in the Old Testament, always referring TO A PLACE, not a being (Job 26:6; 28:22; 31:12; Psalm 88:11; Proverbs 15:11).
A place of DESTRUCTION AND RUIN.
According to Proverbs 5:11, Abaddon is different from Sheol.
And according to that same verse and others, Sheol and Abaddon were both OPEN in the Old Testament.
When Jesus died, rose from the death and triumphantly ASCENDED into heaven, He told us NOT ONLY that "He lives FOREVERMORE" BUT THAT HE NOW HAS THE KEYS OF DEATH AND HADES (Revelation 1:18).
Since the abyss or bottomless pit is a portion of Hades, Jesus used those keys TO LOCK THESE DEMONS UP in the pit.
That's why demonic activity which was frequent and commonplace up to His time, has become virtually non-existent after He rose from the dead, LOCKED UP ALL DEMONS IN the Abyss, and ascended to heaven.
That's why the abyss or bottomless pit MUST BE OPENED in Revelation 9:1 because Christ SHUT IT, and it's FROM THERE that Antichrist will eventually EMERGE.
Revelation 9:11 tells us unequivocally that Abaddon or Apollyon is "THE ANGEL OF the abyss" (or "bottomless pit").
It also tells us he is "king" over the demonic creatures that come out of the abyss (bottomless pit) when the pit is opened in Revelation 9:1.
Apollyon/Abaddon is, therefore, an ANGELIC being, apparently named in Hebrew AFTER THE PLACE in which he is king.
The abyss is the portion of Hades located in the lowest parts of sea, where there is a sudden drop or chasm, and is the abode of demons and some of the damned (Luke 8:31).
That's where Alexander the Antichrist presently is, and from where Satan will bring him out (Revelation 13:1; 11:7; 17:8).
The scriptural sequence is:
1. The fifth trumpet is blown.
2. A star FALLS from heaven to earth, and is GIVEN the key to the abyss or bottomless pit (Revelation 9:1).
That FALLEN "star" is Satan (compare to Isaiah 14:12 and Revelation 12:9).
3. he opens the bottomless pit (Revelation 9:2).
4. Locusts (insect-like demonic creatures) come out of the pit (Revelation 9:3).
5. Sometime AFTER Satan has opened the pit and let these creatures out to sting the unsaved, he BRINGS Alexander (Antichrist) ALSO OUT OF THE PIT (Revelation 11:7; 17:8).
6. In Revelation 20:1-3, AFTER the tribulation has ended and Jesus has returned, we have ANOTHER angel that COMES DOWN (he does NOT "fall") from heaven, puts Satan in chains, throws him into the bottomless pit for 1,000 years, and SHUTS THE PIT BACK UP.
The creep will get a taste of his own medicine when he is IMPRISONED in the pit for A THOUSAND YEARS, just like he kept millions imprisoned in Sheol until Jesus died, rose, SET THEM FREE, AND TOOK THEM TO HEAVEN WITH HIM.
The fallen star in Revelation 9:1 is Satan.
He OPENS the pit to allow demons to come out on the earth and inflict terrible pain to the unsaved.
A bit later, he also brings Antichrist out of the OPEN pit (Revelation 13:1).
Satan is NOT Apollyon, and Apollyon is NOT Satan, or the fallen star.
Apollyon does not open the pit, or let the demons out.
Apollyon HAS BEEN IN THE PIT HIMSELF FOR A LONG, LONG TIME WITH ALL THE DEMONS. That's how he got to be their king.
Nor is Apollyon the Antichrist as some misguided Christians would have us believe.
Revelation 9:11 clearly calls him "THE ANGEL of the Abyss".
The Antichrist IS NOT AN ANGEL.
The Antichrist is A MAN (Revelation 13:18, 17:10; 1 John 2:18).
The Antichrist MUST be a man, because in order to rule the earth you gotta be human.
God gave man dominion over the earth (Genesis 1:26; Psalm 115:16).
God NEVER GAVE such dominion to an angel.
If angels could rule the earth then Satan himself would rule the planet those 3½ years of tribulation, and he would not NEED TO BRING Antichrist (a man) out of the pit to reign FOR him:
Abaddon is Abaddon. Satan is Satan. Antichrist is Antichrist.
They are THREE DIFFERENT BEINGS, WITH THREE DIFFERENT ROLES in the coming tribulation.

HOW TO SIN MORE
Focusing on sin is the ABSOLUTELY CERTAIN way to sin even more.
Focusing on Jesus' righteousness, on His TOTAL REMOVAL of sin, is the ABSOLUTELY CERTAIN way to sin less and less, until we RARELY sin.
I wish I could say that IT'S ONLY THE CULTS like the Jehovah's Witnesses, Church of God, Church of Christ, Seventh Day Adventists, and Mormons that pound people over the head with their sins.
Roman Catholics EXCEL and heaping guilt and condemnation on people.
It's not called "Catholic guilt" for nothing.
And most Evangelicals do the same. They've even COINED A TERM FOR IT: "besetting sins".
HOW DARE they talk about "besetting sins" that JESUS ALREADY REMOVED, FORGOT, and ISN'T EVEN COUNTING? (John 1:29; Hebrews 8:12; 9:26; 2 Corinthians 5:19)
HOW DARE ANYONE call himself "evangelical" when THEY PREACH GUILT and CONDEMNATION, INSTEAD OF Grace?
Haven't they read Romans 8:1:
There is NOW NO CONDEMNATION to those who are in Christ Jesus!
Which part of "NO CONDEMNATION NOW" DON'T THESE GUYS GET?
Until Jesus raptures us and TOTALLY RENEWS our minds, WE WILL ALL SIN from time to time.
However, if we are focused ON HIS RIGHTEOUSNESS, instead of on sin, then sin will be VERY SPORADIC.
Focus on sin and you will sin more and more - NOT LESS - plus Satan will keep you defeated, under constant condemnation (he's not called THE ACCUSER for nothing) and he'll wallop you like a gym's punching bag.
I wish I could say that Christians REALLY TRUST Jesus' PERFECT, FINISHED Work of Redemption WHERE HE PAID FOR EVERY SIN EVER COMMITTED, TOOK AWAY THE SIN OF THE WORLD, AND GAVE US HIS VERY OWN righteousness (1 John 3:5; 2 Corinthians 5:21).
But they DON'T.
If they DID, they'd be glorifying JESUS for WHAT HE DID TO SAVE US, instead of GLORIFYING SIN for condemning us.
HOW ON EARTH do they expect to be caught up to meet Jesus and be changed from mortal to immortal, WHEN THEY'RE NOT FOCUSED ON JESUS OR HIS RIGHTEOUSNESS, BUT ON SIN?
Jesus gives EVERY born-again individual HIS OWN (God's OWN) Righteousness...
If He gives you HIS Righteousness, you got it made!
It DOESN'T GET ANY MORE RIGHTEOUS than that.
It DOESN'T GET MORE RIGHTEOUS than God Himself.
We can focus on OUR SINS, which Jesus isn't even counting. Or we can focus ON HIS RIGHTEOUSNESS:
Focus on Jesus and HIS RIGHTEOUSNESS IN YOU and you will sin less and less...
Focus on HIS PERFECT RIGHTEOUSNESS IN YOU - and the devil will have NOTHING with which to work in your life.
He'll be COMPLETELY CUT OFF from your life and circumstances.
Make up your minds, Christians:
Did JESUS REMOVE the sin of the world - once and for all - or DIDN'T HE?
My Bible says He DID.
Is sin GREATER THAN JESUS, or is JESUS GREATER THAN SIN?

CAN'T BE MORE RIGHTEOUS
The importance of STAYING FOCUSED cannot be overstated.
However, we MUST STAY FOCUSED on THE RIGHT things.
Religion does its level best to keep us focused on THE WRONG things.
How much we sin, how often we sin, what kind of sin we commit, "mortal" sins, "venial" sins, SIN, SIN, SIN, SIN...
WHY, in God's Name, would ANYONE want to focus ON SIN?
Sin consciousness produces GUILT.
And GUILT produces FEAR, which opens the door to Satan, the SPIRIT OF fear, to do his evil work (2 Timothy 1:7).
Sin BRINGS DEATH (Romans 6:23).
And SIN CONSCIOUSNESS brings FEAR AND DEATH.
WHY does religion insist on FOCUSING ON SIN, WHEN JESUS IS NOT COUNTING ANY sins against us?
Again: WHY would any born-again person focus on sin WHEN JESUS IS NOT COUNTING ANY sins against us? (Romans 5:19-21; 2 Corinthians 5:19)
In fact, Jesus has CREDITED US WITH HIS OWN RIGHTEOUSNESS (2 Corinthians 5:21).
We CAN'T BE ANY MORE RIGHTEOUS than we already are IN HIM.
Repeat: We CAN'T BE ANY MORE RIGHTEOUS than WE ALREADY ARE IN Christ.
We MUSTN'T ALLOW thoughts or feelings of guilt, condemnation or fear to DWELL in our minds or hearts:
When such thoughts or feelings come, REJECT THEM IMMEDIATELY in Jesus' Name and FOCUS ON HIS RIGHTEOUSNESS.
Meditate Scriptures that tell us JUST HOW RIGHTEOUS HE HAS MADE US - praise His marvelous Name!
Against guilt and fear there's condemnation, death and every satanic work.
However, AGAINST JESUS' OWN RIGHTEOUSNESS - WHICH IS ALREADY OURS - there is no law, no guilt, no condemnation, NO DEATH, NO TERROR, and NO SATANIC WORK.
C'mon, people! This has been in the New Testament -- FOR THE PAST 2,000 YEARS!!!
WHEN are we going to start PREACHING IT?
WHEN are you going to start BELIEVING IT?
MONDAY, NOVEMBER 16, 2015
"You will keep him IN PERFECT PEACE, whose MIND IS FIXED ON YOU: because HE TRUSTS IN YOU" (Isaiah 26:3).
In John 14:17 Jesus tells His disciples:
"Peace I leave with you,MY PEACE I GIVE UNTO YOU: NOT as the world gives, give I unto you. LET NOT YOUR HEART BE TROUBLED, NEITHER LET IT BE AFRAID".
Imagine being one of Jesus' disciples back in the first century A.D. and hearing those words from the Lord:
Jesus, you gotta be kidding! The Jewish authorities are after us, Herod is after us, the Romans don't like us and CAN EXECUTE US AT WILL, and you tell us NOT to be troubled or afraid???
The disciples lived in a world similar to what we see today in most of the Islamic world.
The reason for this similarity is that Islam, in many ways, is STUCK in the ancient world of the 7th century A.D., when Mohammad invented their satanic religion.
Like these barbarians are doing today, Romans also used to crucify, burn and behead many of their victims.
As evil, ruthless and corrupt as the Roman Empire was,the degree of HATRED and EVIL we are seeing today is unparalleled in human history.
It's one thing to KILL OTHERS whom we perceive as "enemies", it's another thing TO BE WILLING TO DETONATE ONESELF if that's what it takes TO MURDER others.
It's one thing to carry out an execution because it's what you were trained to do. It's another thing to do it BECAUSE YOU THOROUGHLY ENJOY IT.
These Islamic bastards ENJOY inflicting terror, and pain on others.
They RELISH beheading, crucifying and shedding the blood of those who refuse their evil religion. And even that of their own Islamic "brothers".
They DELIGHT in the most heinous methods of torture and murder.
And they LOVE TO BRAG about it and DISPLAY it to the whole world in sickening images and videos published on the internet.
Jesus HAD ALREADY PREPARED His disciples for the persecution that would come by teaching:
"...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 Gehenna" (Matthew 10:28).
ALL these barbarians can do is KILL THE BODY.
THEY CANNOT KILL the human soul. And they can't even TOUCH, let alone intimidate, THE REBORN HUMAN SPIRIT.
The reason none of the disciples protested when Jesus said "DON'T BE troubled or afraid" is because (as we read above) Jesus had taught them in the Tanach, and later, IN PERSON, that such Peace is not natural: it's SUPERNATURAL.
Such peace COMES FROM GOD, when we CHOOSE TO TRUST HIM, and FIX OUR HEARTS AND MINDS ON HIM, and NOT on the evil and incompetent mess that is going on in this transient world.
They can ONLY kill the body. The human SOUL and SPIRIT are IMMORTAL.
They are BEYOND THE REACH of any son of Satan terrorist bastard.
I say the following with genuine compassion, NOT as criticism -- but IT MUST BE SAID:
Satan MUST work through humans.
HE COULDN'T HAVE CARRIED OUT ANY ACTS OF TERROR anywhere, if humans WERE NOT OPENING THE DOOR to Satan, THROUGH FEAR, to operate in their lives and cities.
The principle is given IN THE OLDEST Book of the Bible, which is the Book of Job:
"The thing WHICH I FEARED has COME UPON ME" (Job 3:25)
Job was a VERY GODLY man. And look at ALL THE TRAGEDY that came upon him at once.
Was he ungodly?
Was he disobeying God?
WHAT ALLOWED Satan to function in his life AND RUIN IT?
God had to allow Satan to work in Job's life BECAUSE JOB HAD OPENED THE DOOR TO SATAN THROUGH fear.
When Job STOPPED FEARING and TRUSTED God, all his misery ABRUPTLY ENDED, and God blessed Job WITH TWICE AS MUCH AS HE HAD BEFORE.
When we STOP fear we STOP Satan.
When we STOP fear, by TRUSTING Jesus, and FIXING our hearts and minds ON Him, we STOP TERROR.
It's up to you, Church: we are the light of this world (Matthew 5:14).
We are THE SALT of the earth (Matthew 5:13), and THE ONLY THING that's keeping this decaying world from TOTAL ROT:
That's is why there's INEVITABLE DEVASTATION and TRIBULATION WHEN WE LEAVE.
It's time to GET SERIOUS about this, TRUST JESUS COMPLETELY, and SLAM THE DOOR ON SATAN AND FEAR.
FDR "nailed it" when he said: "we have NOTHING to fear, BUT FEAR ITSELF".

THE FACE OF EVIL
Just two days ago, on Friday, November 13, we saw once again the bloodthirsty face of evil.
Satan is a spirit being and, as such, invisible to natural human eyes.
However, we are seeing UNPRECEDENTED EVIL from THE ENEMY, who only comes to "steal, kill and destroy" (John 10:10).
In order to do his wicked works on earth, Satan must ALWAYS go through humans.
Why? Because God gave MAN (masculine and feminine) DOMINION OVER the earth (Genesis 1:27-28).
Therefore, the enemy sits on the atmospheric heavens, and INFLUENCES humans to carry out his bidding.
He influences them by planting EVIL THOUGHTS and EVIL IMAGES in their already corrupt, sin-infected natural minds.
For the past 15 years Satan HAS INTENSIFIED his activity.
Satan IS the spirit OF FEAR (2 Timothy 1:7).
Another name for "fear" is TERROR.
And that is EXACTLY what we've been seeing for the past decade and a half: TERROR and TERRORISM.
Satan's inhuman and inhumane PUPPETS doing Satan's will which is to steal, KILL and DESTROY.
They are doing it in the most heinous and horrific ways imaginable.
Things already are pretty ugly, and bound TO GET EVEN UGLIER before Christ's Church leaves the earth.
God's people are NOT to fear.
When we fear, we OPEN THE DOOR to Satan, and we virtually LICENSE HIM to do his barbaric will.
We TRUST Christ to keep us safe.
We are CONFIDENT of His Promise of ULTIMATE VICTORY, no matter how bleak things may look in the natural.
However, the other side of the coin is we DO NOT just fold our arms (as the majority of Christians tend to do) and let the devil do as he pleases.
We have A SAY on how many things unfold on this earth.
Satan DOESN'T have the "last word", JESUS DOES.
We have Christ's authority, and we ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR ESTABLISHING and manifesting the Will of God on this earth.
The Spirit of God is the Spirit of Love (1 John 4:16).
LOVE IS GREATER THAN any and EVERY THING.
PERFECT LOVE (Jesus) CASTS OUT TERROR (1 John 4:18).
... PERFECT LOVE, as in Jesus, is what this rotten world desperately needs.
SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 14, 2015
It's with a very heavy heart that I write this message:
As I write, multiple terrorist attacks have taken place across Paris, including at a concert hall and a soccer stadium, with French President Francois Hollande in attendance.
As of right now they are reporting 158 killed and scores wounded, France is in a state of emergency, its borders understandably closed, and a mandatory curfew declared in Paris.
Five terrorists attackers have been killed and a couple more apprehended.
Apparently, some of those rabid barbarians are still on the loose.
One of the apprehended said "I am from Isis. And this is in retaliation for Syria".
Since these orchestrated attacks took place ONLY HOURS AFTER the news broke that infamous beheading terrorist Jihadi John had been killed by a drone strike in Syria, we can only interpret that bastard's words as meaning that this was "payback" for taking him out.
I ask EVERYONE -EVERYONE - to pray FOR France, its leaders, its people, the victims and their families.
As I watched the news, I couldn't help but think: "this is A FORETASTE of things to come".
The reason I'm ASKING EVERYONE to pray is because this horrible situation AFFECTS ALL OF US, either directly or indirectly.
This terrorist attack is of UNPRECEDENTED MAGNITUDE, at least in Europe.
And DO NOT for a moment think that, because Paris is thousands of miles away, it couldn't happen in the good, old U.S.A.
In case you have forgotten (I haven't), or if you think it couldn't happen here, I got two little words for you: "9/11".
I was also reminded of the chilling warning given to President Obama by King Abdullah of Saudi Arabia on August 30, 2014:
That if we didn't do anything to contain and defeat these barbarians in Iraq and Syria, if we NEGLECTED TO STOP THEM, as we INDEED HAVE --"I am CERTAIN THAT AFTER A MONTH they will reach Europe and, AFTER ANOTHER MONTH, America."
It may have taken them a bit more than a month (actually, little over a year), but Abdullah's words now seem prophetic and are coming back to bite us in the rear.
These barbarians are no longer just targeting landmark buildings (Twin Towers, Pentagon) but PUBLIC PLACES where people gather to attend a concert, or watch a sports event.
With Christmas coming up they could target malls, restaurants, and Lord knows what else.
The time may come when people won't feel safe ANYWHERE.
Fact is, these barbaric beasts were keeping a low profile, blending into the shadows, and JUST WAITING FOR their terrorist masters in Syria to give the "go ahead" IN ORDER TO STRIKE, IN 6 DIFFERENT PLACES ALL AT ONCE, and MURDER INDISCRIMINATELY.
The fact is that VIRTUALLY ANYONE can get through our southern border, and we have NO IDEA WHO has already gotten through.
There already are terrorist "sleeping cells" right here in the U.S.
Just like they kept a low profile in Paris, they are keeping a low profile here: UNTIL...
So, DON'T DREAM, for one nanosecond, that we are out of the woods. DO NOT be lulled into a false sense of security.
Our time left on earth is short and Satan's time in heaven is even shorter. And he is going to get more furious the closer we get to him being exiled from heaven.
This is a time for EVERY PERSON OF FAITH to fall on his or her face, EVERY SINGLE DAY and pray for God's protection for our countries, our leaders, our fellow citizens, for Israel and, ABOVE ALL, for souls to come into the Kingdom.
We need to cover ALL OF THESE - ON A DAILY BASIS - with the most precious Blood of our Lord.
We also need to BIND (PARALYZE) the spirit of TERROR (fear) and FORBID it to operate in our countries and our lives, in the Name of Jesus.
It's time to STOP PLAYING religious games, Christians!
Let's GET SERIOUS about this thing:
Because TERRORISTS ARE DEAD SERIOUS about killing us.
Don't take our freedoms and protection for granted.
We are NOT to fear. Fear is of Satan. We are to TRUST God, and INTERCEDE for our countries, peoples, and soul.
PRAY, SEEK GOD, seek His Will, seek FIRST His Kingdom, and exercise the spiritual authority we have in Christ.
May His Blood continually cover each of us, our families and countries.
In Jesus' Name. Amen.
URGENT: PLEASE PRAY FOR THE SITUATION IN PARIS THAT THE HOSTAGES WILL BE RESCUED SAFELY, ALL TERRORISTS BROUGHT TO JUSTICE, THE INJURED HEALED AND TO TOTALLY RECOVER, AND FOR THE FAMILIES OF THE MURDERED VICTIMS. THANK YOU.
Almighty and most merciful God, in the Name of Jesus and by His most precious Blood, we ask that Parisian and French authorities will function and execute efficiently and flawlessly. Help them kill or capture those evil terrorists beasts and bring every last one of them to justice. We ask you, judge of all the earth, DO NOT LET THEM ESCAPE. They are PURE EVIL and SERVE THE ENEMY, SATAN. Let them ALL be killed or captured.
We join in spirit with our brothers and sisters across the world and we ask for JUSTICE FROM ABOVE.
We pray for the surviving victims: THAT THEY WILL ALL HEAL COMPLETELY, AND BE MADE COMPLETELY WHOLE. DO NOT ALLOW these bastards to take any limbs, or body parts, or permanently impair any physical or mental faculties. Please, most gracious and merciful Father, we ask it IN THE NAME THAT IS ABOVE EVERY NAME, the Wonderful Name of Jesus. Amen and amen.
Lord, we pray AGAINST Isis and Al Qaeda and Hamas, and every terrorist organization: ERADICATE THEM FROM THE FACE OF THE EARTH. These wild beasts DO NOT DESERVE TO BREATHE or occupy space on this planet. PLEASE WIPE THEM OFF THE FACE OF THE EARTH AND SEND THEM STRAIGHT TO HELL, WHERE THEY BELONG. In Jesus' Name and ON HIS AUTHORITY we ask it. Amen.
We also pray for the families of the dead and the injured, PLEASE BE WITH THEM in a special way. Holy Spirit, give them the supernatural comfort that ONLY YOU can give. Help them overcome this crisis. Give them your Peace that passes all understanding. In Jesus' Name. Amen.
Heavenly Father, we ask that this great tragedy that enemy meant for evil will somehow be for the good of many: We ask THAT MILLIONS OF SOULS ACROSS THE WORLD WILL COME TO REALIZE THAT JESUS IS OUR ONLY HOPE. That they will come to KNOW JESUS, as only God and Savior. That they will pass from death unto eternal Life. That they will REALIZE THAT ONLY THE PRINCE OF PEACE can bring peace to this sin-laden, evil infested, terrorist riddled world. Come, Lord Jesus! Let's put and end -- once and for all -- to all this senseless misery. Please Jesus, COME! COME, LORD JESUS. YOUR CHURCH LONGS FOR YOU WITH EVERY FIBER OF OUR BEINGS. PLEASE REMEMBER YOUR PROMISE to Abraham and His Seed. COME, LORD JESUS, COME. The Spirit and the Bride say "COME".
Father, last but not least, we pray that if these evil terrorists are planning "encore" attacks against France, England, any of our allies, Canada, Australia, Israel, or the United States, or any of our national interests abroad, THAT THEIR EVIL PLANS WILL BE THWARTED. In Jesus' Name, and by the Blood of the SINLESS Lamb of God, we STAND AGAINST THEM, and we FORBID -- TOTALLY FORBID -- attacks ANYWHERE ELSE, WE FORBID ANY attacks in the nations I just mentioned, or against our peoples or interests anywhere in the world.
We declare ALL THE WORKS OF SATAN DESTROYED in Jesus' most glorious Name. And we speak YOUR PEACE to Paris, all of France, Israel, and all the other nations just mentioned.
Thank you for hearing and answering our prayers. We give you glory, Almighty God. We praise you and thank you, that FINAL VICTORY is ours. In Jesus' Mighty Name. Amen and Amen. Thank you, Father. Glory to Father, Son and Holy Spirit forever. Thank you, Lord Jesus. Hallelujah. Amen. Amen.
FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 13, 2015
On the evening of that FIRST DAY OF THE WEEK (Sunday), WHEN THE DISCIPLES WERE TOGETHER, with THE DOORS LOCKED FOR FEAR of the Jews, Jesus came and stood among them and said, "Peace be with you! (John 20:19)"
Is there such thing as a "closet" Christian?
Being Christian in the first, second and third centuries A.D. WASN'T popular; at least not with the religious establishment or government authorities.
Belief in Jesus Christ as God, Messiah and only Redeemer of mankind could VERY EASILY cost someone their life.
It could mean having their families killed or sold into slavery.
It could mean having all their property confiscated.
It could mean being tortured to death, crucified or torn by wild beasts in Rome's infamous Coliseum.
Yet the BRAVE, committed Christians of that era DIDN'T HESITATE to pay the highest price rather than denounce their Lord, or their faith.
Sure, there were underground churches.
Sure, there was a measure of secrecy because persecution was relentless.
But, from that watershed day of Pentecost in 34 A.D. forward -- when the Church was Spirit-born -- they DID NOT keep their faith a secret (Acts 2:1-4,14-38,41).
If they had, the Christian faith WOULD NOT have spread ALL OVER THE WORLD, like it did (Acts 17:6).
If they had, the Christian faith WOULD NOT have SWALLOWED UP the greatest military machine known to man PEACEABLY, in just three centuries. Glory to Jesus!
When push came to shove, those BOLD, HEROIC brothers and sisters - empowered by God's Holy Spirit -- STOOD UP for their Lord and refused to renounce Him, REGARDLESS of the cost, EVEN WHEN THEIR OWN LIVES WERE ON THE LINE.
Contrast that with today's "Christians" -- at least those in the Western Hemisphere -- who are TOO COWARDLY to share Jesus with others, for "FEAR" of being "unpopular"...
For FEAR of being labeled "intolerant".
For FEAR of being "rejected".
For FEAR of being ridiculed.
For FEAR of not being "cool".
For FEAR of not being able to answer their critics.
If they spent a little time communing with Jesus in spirit, studying and meditating His Word, they WOULD HAVE answers, as the Scripture says they SHOULD, (1 Peter 3:15).
NO ONE'S THREATENING their LIVES, mind you.
NO ONE'S PERSECUTING THEM.
But THE VAST MAJORITY NEVER takes three minutes of their time to share Jesus with an unbeliever.
All they're good for is "preaching to the choir".
Let the world GO TO HELL, we don't need those "secular" TV stations! We now have "Christian" TV.
You know, where STUPID Christians supposedly "own" the network.
You PAID FOR IT, alright. But you DON'T OWN IT.
If you did, you'd be living like THE REAL OWNERS LIVE: in multi-millionaire mansions, wearing Armani and Rolexes, getting more plastic surgery than Kim Kardashian, driving Bentleys, flying in private jets, taking extravagant vacations, being sued by members of your own family, and with an ever-present entourage, including several bodyguards, always hanging around.
Let Hollywood DISRESPECT Jesus and MOCK Him and the Christian faith, in worthless movie after worthless piece of trash, we now make our "own" "Christian" films to PREACH TO THE CHOIR.
Worse yet, we're TOO CHICKEN-SH*T to preach the Gospel CLEARLY AND OVERTLY (even to fellow believers!!!) - We now do it COVERTLY and SUBLIMINALLY (heaven help us, and may God have mercy on their DECEIVED AND GUTLESS religious souls).
We have so-called "Christian" entertainers WHO ARE SO WORLDLY that you can't even TELL THE DIFFERENCE between them and Lindsey Lohan.
Let the world die and go to hell, why should I bother to participate in a SECULAR FORUM, WHICH UNBELIEVERS READ, and where I can SAFELY and ANONYMOUSLY share my faith?
TV stations, secular magazines, newspapers and entertaining websites - just to name a few -- have such forums, where 95% of readers are UNSAVED.
Dear God, you could MAKE A FULL TIME MINISTRY of just shining the Light of Gospel Truth in those!
Forget it! We even have OUR OWN INTERNET FORUMS where, instead of preaching to THE LOST WORLD, we DEVOTE OUR SORRY TIME AND LIVES TO IMPRESSING OTHER BELIEVING NITWITS WITH OUR PROPHETIC DIVINATION, "SAGE THEORIES" AND "HOW MUCH" WE THINK we know.
Funny thing: ATHEISTS have no qualms about sharing their views OPENLY with everyone. They DON'T CARE if it's "unpopular".
ABORTION ADVOCATES have no problems expressing their views PROUDLY and openly.
SATANISTS and OCCULTISTS have no problems.
PORNOGRAPHERS have no problems.
EVEN NEWS ANCHORS, who are constantly in the public eye, and risk some degree of public backlash, have NO PROBLEMS openly stating their sexual orientation.
Only "Christians" are TOO TIMID to share Jesus.
Only "Christians" are TOO SCARED to "COME OUT OF THE CLOSET" and PROUDLY AND OPENLY share Christ.
There's NO SUCH THING AS "a closet Christian".
There's NEVER BEEN such thing.
Thank God the Early Church WASN'T "in the closet" or you and I WOULDN'T BE SAVED.
You "SAY" you're Christian.
But TALK is CHEAP.
If you really are, don't tell the Church, TELL THE WORLD!!!

GREATER THAN SIN
Do you ever sin? I do...
I WISH I didn't, but no matter how much or how hard I try NOT TO sin...
NO MATTER HOW MUCH I WANT TO live a sinless life, I can't.
If you're anything like me in that regard, I have THE BEST news:
JESUS is GREATER THAN all your sins.
JESUS is GREATER THAN all my sins.
JESUS is GREATER THAN ALL of mankind's sin COMBINED.
In fact, NO SIN is a match for my Jesus.
NO AMOUNT OF SINNING can exhaust God's Grace.
But you don't know WHAT I'VE DONE...
You don't know HOW MUCH I've done it...
You don't know HOW MANY TIMES I've sinned...
You don't know the TERRIBLE SINS I've committed...
You're right. I don't know.
BUT JESUS KNOWS.
And Jesus, in His great mercy, HAS CHOSEN NOT TO count those sins against you.
JESUS HAS CHOSEN NOT TO CHARGE YOU for ANY of those sins (John 1:29; 1 John 3:5).
Because Jesus ALREADY PAID FOR ALL your sins and mine... (Hebrews 10:14)
Because Jesus ALREADY TOOK AWAY THE SIN of the whole world... (John 1:29; Hebrews 9:12,26)
Jesus will ERASE ALL your sins... (Isaiah 1:18; Colossians 2:13-15).
Jesus will FORGET that you EVER sinned (Jeremiah 31:34; Hebrews 8:12; 10:17).
Jesus will FREELY CREDIT YOU WITH NEVER SINNING.
Jesus will DECLARE YOU AS RIGHTEOUS as He is (2 Corinthians 5:21).
He'll declare you as PERFECT as He is.
Oh, come on...
That sounds too good to be true.
That's why YOU CANNOT let this marvelous opportunity pass you buy.
You NEED JESUS and you need Him - NOW.
But that's NOT what ______ denomination taught me.
That's NOT what I was told in Sunday school or Sabbatical school when I was a child.
BUT THAT'S WHAT JESUS SAID.
In fact, that has been His TRUE MESSAGE, His Good News, FOR THE PAST 2,000 YEARS:
"God was in Christ RECONCILING the world unto Himself:NOT COUNTING men's sins against them" (2 Corinthians 5:19).
But I did ___________________________.
He's NOT counting it AGAINST YOU.
But I did it 50 MILLION TIMES...
He's NOT counting them against you.
But I was told...
So what? Are you going to believe sinful men OVER GOD?
That is why NO SIN can send anyone to hell.
There's ONLY ONE sin - in the entire universe - that Jesus cannot erase, ONLY ONE sin that will send anyone to hell:
NOT receiving Christ.
Salvation is available to you as GOD'S GIFT.
You can receive the gift and have your record wiped clean.
Or you can REFUSE THE GIFT, in which case YOU WILL BE HELD ACCOUNTABLE for your sins, and THEY WILL BE COUNTED against you.
Jesus is God's GIFT of Salvation to WHOEVER RECEIVES HIM into their heart - NO MATTER HOW MUCH they've sinned(John 3:16).
Either our sins are greater than Jesus, in which case we're all lost without any remedy.
Or Jesus is FAR GREATER than our sins.
If Jesus is GREATER THAN our sins, then we have NOTHING to worry about: all we need to do is RECEIVE JESUS INTO OUR HEARTS.
Romans 8:31: If God Himself IS FOR US... WHO can be against us?

SONS OF GOD
"But as many as received Him, to them gave He power to become THE SONS OF God, even to them that believe on His Name: WHICH WERE BORN, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, BUT OF GOD" (John 1:12-13; 1 Peter 1:23).
"Beloved, NOW ARE WE THE SONS OF God, and it does not yet appear what we shall be: but WE KNOW THAT, WHEN HE SHALL APPEAR, WE SHALL BE LIKE HIM; for we shall see Him as He is" (1 John 3:2),
"For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, THEY ARE THE SONS OF God.
For you have not received the spirit of bondage again to fear; but you have received the Spirit of adoption, by which we cry, Abba, Father.
The Spirit himself bears witness with our spirit, THAT WE ARE THE SONS OF God:
And if SONS, then HEIRS; heirs of God, and JOINT-HEIRS WITH Christ; if so be that we suffer with Him, so that we may be also glorified together.
For I reckon that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared WITH THE GLORY WHICH SHALL BE REVEALED IN US.
For... THE CREATION WAITS FOR THE MANIFESTATION OF THE SONS of God.
...Because THE CREATION ITSELF ALSO SHALL BE DELIVERED FROM THE BONDAGE OF CORRUPTION into the glorious liberty OF THE SONS OF God" (Romans 8:14-21).
"And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them WHO ARE THE CALLED ACCORDING TO HIS PURPOSE.
For WHOM HE DID FOREKNOW, HE ALSO DID PREDESTINE TO BE CONFORMED TO THE IMAGE OF His Son, that He might be THE FIRSTBORN AMONG many brethren (Romans 8:28-29).
In John 3:16 Jesus is called the "ONLY BEGOTTEN SON" of God.
That was before Calvary and the Resurrection.
God KNEW IN ADVANCE who are, and would be, His sons, having chosen us and predestined us in Christ Jesus BEFORE THE FOUNDATION of the world (Ephesians 1:4).
All of God's sons, beginning with Adam, had fallen into sin, EXCEPT JESUS.
Therefore, of all the sons of God, Jesus was THE ONLY ONE LEFT.
Jesus came to redeem (buy back) God's OTHER sons who had fallen into sin. Praise His Name forever!
After the Resurrection, in Romans 8:29, as we read above, Jesus is NO LONGER CALLED "the only begotten son" of God but "THE FIRSTBORN among MANY brethren, or among many OTHER SONS".
The past 2,000 years of human history have been all about Jesus, the Incorruptible Seed of God (1 John 3:9), the Seed OF THE WOMAN (Genesis 3:15), and Seed of Abraham (Galatians 3:16), multiplying into millions and even billions of seeds:
"Verily, verily, I say unto you, Except a grain (seed) of wheat falls into the ground and dies, it abides alone: but IF IT DIES, IT BRINGS FORTH MUCH FRUIT" (John 12:24).
Like natural seeds, God's INCORRUPTIBLE Seed had to die for the rest of the sons, be buried, go into hell itself in the center of the earth for three days and nights and, from hell itself, SPRING FORTH RESURRECTED, having defeated Satan, demons, principalities and powers of darkness, taken the keys of Death and Hell itself, and ascended to the Father's Throne (1 Corinthians 15:37-38; 1 John 3:9, 5:1, 4, 18).
Our Jesus did all that so that the second born, the third born, the fourth born and the one trillionth born sons could also ascend to the Father's Throne WHERE THEY WERE, as spirit beings, before the foundation of the earth.
Paul weaves this marvelous Truth throughout his epistles, calling it the Mystery of Christ (Romans 11:25; 1 Corinthians 2:1; 15:50; Ephesians 1:9, 3:4,9, 5:32; Colossians 1:27):
The First Son MANIFESTED in and through MANY SONS.
Yes, Jesus as Creator God will always be INFINITELY greater than the sum of all His "parts" (us).
However, each of us who KNOW HIM, whom He foreknew (KNEW in advance), chose and predestined in Himself before creating the earth, are destined to MANIFEST His fullness:
The measure of the stature of the FULLNESS OF Christ (Ephesians 4:13).
That's why Paul says that the sufferings we experience in this TEMPORARY sub-realm of "time", which is about to expire, ARE NOT WORTHY to be compared WITH OUR BRILLIANT AND GLORIOUS DESTINY who is Christ Himself (Ephesians 3:19; 4:13).
What could possibly be greater than BEING IN Jesus?
What could possibly be greater than BEING Jesus?
The Seed that was planted 2,000 years ago has multiplied into MANY, MANY SONS OF GOD.
And that huge harvest, comprised of so many seeds that cannot be numbered, is about to break forth (Revelation 7:9).
Hallelujah! Praise God for His Faithfulness! Come Lord Jesus!

A few days ago, as Israeli archaeologists dug around a Jerusalem parking lot, they found the remains of the infamous Citadel (Acra), used by Greeks under Antiochus Epiphanes to both control and terrify the Jews from 168-164 B.C.
They uncovered the base of the tower, a massive wall over 20 meters (65 feet) in height and 4 meters (12 feet) wide.
Also found were numerous sling stones and bronze arrowheads, as well as coins minted during Antiochus Epiphanes' reign.
The Citadel was a fortress with a high tower (we now know 65 feet tall) from which Antiochus' armed henchmen could watch EVERYTHING that was going on in Jerusalem, and squash any attempt to break free from his evil rule.
The Citadel is mentioned in 1 and 2 Maccabees and by historian Flavius Josephus Antiquities of the Jews 12:133-138, 248; 13:215-217:247.
This finding is significant for two main reasons:
1. It vindicates Josephus and proves, once again, just what accurate, reliable, invaluable historical source he is:
The citadel WAS RIGHT WHERE HE SAID it was:
"when he (Antiochus) had overthrown the city walls, he (Antiochus) BUILT A CITADEL IN THE LOWER PART OF THE CITY, for THE PLACE WAS HIGH, AND OVERLOOKED THE TEMPLE; on which account he fortified it with high walls and towers, and put into it a garrison of Macedonians.
... And when the king HAD BUILT AN IDOL ALTAR UPON God's altar, he slew swine upon it, and so offered a sacrifice neither according to the law, nor the Jewish religious worship in that country. HE ALSO COMPELLED THEM TO FORSAKE THE WORSHIP which they paid their own God, and TO ADORE THOSE WHOM HE TOOK TO BE GODS..." (Antiquities 12:248)
2. This find PROVIDES FURTHER EVIDENCE of where the ancient temples were located:
They WEREN'T located on the falsely called "temple mount".
They stood "in THE LOWER PART OF the city", SOUTH of the "temple mount" in the area named Ophel, with the Gihon spring gushing within the temple structure.
Question: if the citadel was built "on the LOWER part of" Jerusalem, as Josephus tells us (see above), AND AS ARCHAEOLOGY HAS JUST CONFIRMED, and it "OVERLOOKED THE TEMPLE":
HOW ON EARTH could it have OVERLOOKED the temple, if the temple was atop the "temple mount" which is THE HIGHEST part of Mount Moriah?
It could have ONLY OVERLOOKED the temple, if the temple stood LOWER than the tower and NEAR the tower, also on the LOWER part of the city as Josephus says.
1 Maccabees 14:36 corroborates this:
"...the men in the city of David in Jerusalem, who HAD BUILT THEMSELVES A CITADEL from which they used to rush forth AND DEFILE THE ENVIRONS OF THE TEMPLE and do great damage to its purity".
The moment I heard the news, I read several articles, but their description of the location was vague.
The chief archaeologist commented that they could "cut off access to the temple mount FROM THE SOUTH".
I don't think they've thought this through:
WHY would the Seleucids be so concerned about cutting off access FROM THE SOUTH, when most of the Jewish population lived TO THE WEST?
KNOWING - FROM SCRIPTURE - that the temple stood at Ophel, and KNOWING - also from Scripture - that the Jewish population was concentrated mainly in the Jewish Quarter, WHERE would I have built the citadel in order to have FULL CONTROL of the goings on in the temple, observe all activities in the city, AND CONTROL ACCESS TO THE TEMPLE FROM EVERY DIRECTION?
I picked a strategic spot but thought that couldn't be it, because it was too close to the city walls, and all the articles said it was located in Silwan, an Arab neighborhood located in the southern part of the "City of David" (Ir David).
Finally I found a couple articles that named the parking lot.
And guess what... THE CITADEL WAS LOCATED AT THE VERY SPOT I had picked.
Actually, those Greek bastards could NOT ONLY SEE EVERYTHING that went on in the temple, including the statue of Antiochus (Abomination of Desolation) they had erected, but they COULD CONTROL ACCESS TO THE TEMPLE FROM EVERY DIRECTION: north, west AND SOUTH, (direct access from the east being naturally hindered by the Kidron Valley).
Josephus tells us that the temple was located on Jerusalem's eastern hill (lower city), which is crescent shaped.
The citadel, it turns out, sat JUST WEST of the temple ALSO on the crescent shaped hill (Ophel), EXACTLY AS Josephus describes (between the temple and the Jewish Quarter).
Can it be mere coincidence that they have found the Acra at this particular time?
Don't think so.
Jews are SO IN DENIAL about their overwhelming defeat and total destruction of their temple - first by the Babylonians and then by the Romans - THAT THEY HAVE IGNORED the testimony of THEIR OWN SCRIPTURES concerning the location of the temples.
They HAVE ALSO IGNORED (in violation of their own Torah) the HISTORICAL testimony OF SEVERAL IMPARTIAL EYEWITNESSES like Josephus, Tacitus, Aristeas, and Hecateus of Abdera, who wrote in the time of Alexander the Great (Deuteronomy 19:15).
But SEEING IS BELIEVING:
Before the Church leaves, Israeli archaeologists will find SOMETHING that will FOREVER PROVE - WITHOUT THE SLIGHTEST DOUBT - the true location of the first and second temples.
Why? Because they begin to build the THIRD temple - the one that Antichrist will desecrate - right after the tribulation begins (Revelation 11:1-2).
And they won't topple the Dome of the Rock and build the temple at its location.
God gets to do the honors and topple the Dome Himself, near the end of the tribulation (Revelation 11:13).
That means, that they will build the third temple on its TRUE location.
This find may just be the tip of the iceberg.

The Book of Revelation gives the most comprehensive account of the tribulation.
Surely, if the Rapture takes place AT THE END of the tribulation, as diminutive Jim Bakker and other religious liars propose, it must be depicted SOMEWHERE in that marvelous Book conveyed by Jesus, through His Angel, to the Apostle John (Revelation 1:1).
Surely Jesus KNEW how desperate His Church would be in the end times to see His Face and be translated into the heavenly realm.
Surely if the catching up of believers takes place AT THE END of the tribulation, JESUS WOULD HAVE GIVEN CLEAR INDICATION, so that His followers would KNOW FOR SURE they had something to which to look forward AFTER the unspeakable sufferings of the horrific tribulation.
But Jesus DID NOT give such indication.
Post tribbers are faced with one tiny problem:
There is NO MENTION WHATSOEVER OF ANY believer being CAUGHT UP to Jesus AT THE END of the tribulation.
ZERO. ZIP. NONE.
Matter of fact, we know from both 1 Corinthians 15:50-55 and 1 Thessalonians 4:14-17 that, at the Rapture, there's A RESURRECTION of "the dead in Christ" after which they are CAUGHT UP TOGETHER WITH LIVING believers.
The ONLY resurrection OF BELIEVERS that we find at the END of the tribulation is in Revelation 20:4.
That verse clearly states this resurrection is ONLY for those who were martyred for their faith in Christ during the 3½-year tribulation.
There is NO MENTION WHATSOEVER of them being joined to LIVING believers.
There is NO MENTION WHATSOEVER of them - or ANYONE ELSE - being caught up.
Moreover, since this resurrection is ONLY for tribulation martyrs, if it were the Rapture, that would mean THAT JESUS LIED, AND ALL THE PREVIOUS "DEAD IN CHRIST" WERE NEITHER RESURRECTED NOR CAUGHT UP, as His Word promises.
Well, wait a minute, maybe the post tribulation Rapture is not shown in Revelation... but surely, it must be clearly shown in some other eschatological book...
Zechariah... After all he devotes THREE WHOLE CHAPTERS (12,13,14) TO the Second Coming .
Well, then, perhaps in one of the Epistles?
The Book of Acts?
Well, then, IT'S GOTTA BE in the Gospels!!!
The Gospels give the signs that WILL TAKE PLACE IMMEDIATELY WITH (eutheos meta) the tribulation (Matthew 24:29; Luke 21:25) .
And they ALL SHOW that Jesus appears IN THE CLOUDS - NOT ON EARTH - and COLLECTS His chosen - AT THE START OF THE TRIBULATION, right after those signs begin (Matthew 24:30-31; Luke 21:27-28).
Moreover, at Christ's Second Coming, when He RETURNS TO EARTH, He is accompanied by ALL HIS SAINTS (Zechariah 14:5; Jude 1:14-15; Revelation 8:3; 19:14).
That means that ALL HIS SAINTS (dead and living), must have LEFT THE EARTH and been CAUGHT UP TO HEAVEN PRIOR TO His Second Coming.
Indeed, they have.
Revelation 6:9-11 shows the dead in Christ PRIOR TO THEIR RESURRECTION and Rapture.
Revelation 6:12-16 gives us the same signs given in the synoptic Gospels that indicate the BEGINNING OF the tribulation.
And Revelation 7:9 shows THOSE SAINTS RESURRECTED, STANDING in front of God's Throne IN HEAVEN (caught up to heaven), in glorified bodies, ALONG WITH THE LIVING IN CHRIST WHO WERE ALSO CAUGHT UP.
They comprise "a great multitude" of believers that "NO ONE CAN NUMBER".
They ALL washed their robes and "made them white IN THE BLOOD OF THE LAMB" (Revelation 7:14).
And WHEN is this great multitude of the dead in Christ plus the living in Christ caught up?
UNDER THE 6TH SEAL.
Right after the signs that indicate the tribulation is starting, BEFORE THE TRIBULATION JUDGMENTS (7TH SEAL) HAVE EVEN BEGUN.
Glory to Jesus!
Tch... tch...tch...tch... tch...
Poor post tribbers: they haven't got a scriptural leg on which to stand.

OLD DOG, NEW TRICKS
You'd think that after a man has been CONVICTED OF A CRIME, and SERVED 5 YEARS IN FEDERAL PRISON, he would have learned a thing or two, repented, and perhaps mended his ways.
Especially when he CLAIMS TO BE a "man of God".
Clearly, that HASN'T BEEN the case with minuscule scam artist Jim Bakker.
In 1989 Bakker was tried and FOUND GUILTY BY A JURY on 24 COUNTS OF MAIL FRAUD, WIRE FRAUD and RACKETEERING.
The Charlotte Observer discovered that he kept "two sets of books" and had personally pocketed MOST of the donations earmarked for his "Christian village", Heritage U.S.A.
He was sentenced to 45 YEARS in federal prison.
He was granted parole 5 years later.
Jim was also involved in a huge scandal - FOR WHICH HE NEVER UNDERWENT TRIAL: he and fellow "man of gaaaaawd" John Wesley Fletcher drugged and raped former church secretary Jessica Hahn.
The reason he was never charged or prosecuted for that crime is that he paid Hahn OVER A QUARTER OF A MILLION DOLLARS in hush money - all from your generous, sacrificial "love gifts" - thank you very much.
After his release, Jim wrote a book entitled I Was Wrong, in which he renounced the "prosperity gospel", WHICH HE HAD USED TO SWINDLE MILLIONS OF DOLLARS (as much as A MILLION PER WEEK) out of millions of stupid "Christian" groupies.
20 years later, Jim's at it again:
The old dog has come up with NEW TRICKS:
He claims that, while in prison, he searched the Bible for evidence of a pre-trib Rapture, and couldn't find any.
Therefore, since JIM CLAIMS that HE "couldn't find any" evidence, EVERYONE ELSE is supposed to believe his lack of "finding".
NEVER MIND those of us WHO HAVE FOUND UNDISPUTED, SLAM DUNK EVIDENCE.
Jim has also admitted that he read the whole Bible -FOR THE FIRST TIME IN HIS LIFE - when he went to prison.
That proves that Jim was EXTREMELY UNQUALIFIED TO PREACH, and SHOULDN'T HAVE BEEN IN MINISTRY TO BEGIN WITH.
And yet, he raised more money from Bible illiterate "Christians", than CBN and TBN COMBINED.
Based on his dubious "scholarship" OF HAVING READ THE BIBLE ONCE -- in his whole life...
And that he finally read it IN PRISON when he HAD "NOTHING BETTER" TO DO...
And on an alleged "prophetic dream from god" (spelled with a lower case "g" on purpose), Jim is now in THE FEAR PEDDLING BUSINESS:
He teaches that the Church WILL GO THROUGH the "7-year tribulation".
Never mind that there's NO 7-YEAR TRIBULATION in the ENTIRE Bible.
Jim is SELLING tribulation food, tribulation "survival kits", and other tribulation paraphernalia... ALL AT OVER-INFLATED PRICES, OF COURSE, to... you guessed it, stupid, star-struck, "Christian" groupies.
The cheapest item costs $800.00 and most items range in price from $2,500 - $3,500 and up.
He is also SELLING "dome homes" (which can, supposedly, withstand fire) and soliciting $1,000.00 donations for some mountaintop prayer center.
For the TOTAL IDIOTS who'd even contemplate acquiescing, allow me to jog your memory with a friendly, two-word reminder: "Heritage USA".
Jim is also selling COSTUME JEWELRY and a baseball cap with a cross, which he wears on camera to cover his bald head.
Why ANYONE would want cubic zirconia DURING THE TRIBULATION beats the hell out of me...
Let alone wearing that baseball cap WITH A CROSS...
Perhaps the mongoloids who still worship Bakker want to give Antichrist CLEAR EVIDENCE to chop off their stupid heads.
Or, who knows, maybe Jim WILL SELL THEM a titanium helmet guaranteed to protect from decapitation later on.
I'll tell you what is NOT FOUND IN the Bible: a 7-year tribulation.
I'll tell you WHAT ELSE ISN'T FOUND in the Bible: a post-trib Rapture.
And God HAS NOT - NOT - given us the spirit of fear (2 Timothy 1:7; 1 John 4:18).
But Jim Bakker HAS!
Since the spirit of fear COMES FROM SATAN, Jim Bakker SERVES SATAN, all the while masquerading as "minister of Christ" * (Matthew 7:15; 2 Corinthians 11:13-14).
But let's give credit where credit is due:
Jim WASN'T scouring the Bible for proof of the pre-trib Rapture.
If he had been, he WOULD HAVE FOUND IT.
What he was doing during those 5 years in prison was PLANNING HIS COMEBACK and INVENTING HIS NEXT SCAM.
And, this time, he came up with an ingenious, fool-proof scheme:
Fill the minds and hearts of religious morons WITH FEAR about the tribulation, AND MANIPULATE THEM into parting with their money.
Since the tribulation is a "future" event, they CAN'T PROVE FRAUD, because it hasn't happened yet.
And when it DOES HAPPEN, Christians - WHO WASTED ALL THAT MONEY on "tribulation stuff" they DON'T NEED - so that Jim could maintain his lifestyle of LUXURY - will be gone.
It'll be TOO LATE FOR THEM TO PRESS CHARGES or for anyone to prosecute.
Look, it's none of my business what anyone does with their own money.
But, really... The guy is A PROVEN LIAR, RAPIST, ADULTERER, HYPOCRITE, and CONVICTED CRIMINAL...
WHAT WILL IT TAKE for some of his IDOLATROUS worshipers TO REALIZE HE'S NOTHING BUT A GREEDY SELF-PROMOTING SLEAZEBAG, WHO DOESN'T GIVE A DAMN ABOUT YOU, JESUS, YOUR SURVIVAL, or ANYONE BUT HIMSELF?
In justifying his MISUSE of mass media, Bakker once said: "I believe that IF JESUS WERE ALIVE TODAY,he would be on TV".
Jesus IS ALIVE today, douche bag:
He is NOT on TV, He is NOT fleecing His sheep, He's not scaring anyone, He's NOT SELLING ANYTHING, and you NO MORE HEARD FROM Jesus than I heard from Elvis!
* I said he SERVES Satan, I DIDN'T say he is UNSAVED: whether he is or not, God only knows. I hope, for his own sake, that he is born-again). And yes, there are A LOT OF Christians who SERVE Satan, whether they know it or not.
SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 7, 2015
There aren't very many Christians, or for that matter, many Christian ministers, that I look up to.
Billy Graham is one of the few that I hold in high regard and deep admiration.
For one thing, Billy was instrumental in my salvation. I came to know Jesus as my savior, in large part, because of his ministry.
That, alone, makes me eternally indebted, and eternally grateful to him.
Of course, that was over 30 years ago. At that time, I was a baby in Christ.
Little did I know that Jesus would eventually call me into the ministry.
Needless to say, my spiritual relationship with Jesus has greatly deepened, and grown by leaps and bounds since then: to Christ be all the glory!
One thing I've always appreciated about Billy is his CLEAR, SIMPLE, NO-NONSENSE APPROACH to the Gospel.
I learned the value of the UNAMBIGUOUS, DIRECT MESSAGE from Billy.
Billy also taught me I didn't have to "clean up my act", in order to give my heart to Jesus, that I could to come to Him "JUST as I am".
Although Jesus and His Holy Spirit have called me to a rather unconventional ministry, I've never forgotten Billy's admonition to ALWAYS preach the cross, since it's the message of the cross that draws more people to Jesus than any other.
Same goes for INVITING OTHERS to receive Christ.
Billy is a true leader, who's always led by example, not manipulation.
Despite being one of the most admired and influential men in America and the world, personal friend to every U.S. President from Kennedy to Bush, Billy remained down-to-earth, lived a modest life, and never used his ministry, or considerable influence, for personal gain.
He was never involved in any sort of scandal, and never prostituted the Gospel for money, as have so many pimps and pimpettes prancing around our TV screens.
Since Billy turns 97 years young today, I think it proper to publicly honor this giant of the Christian faith, who's blessed so many, including your humble servant.
I praise Jesus for Billy. And I love and THANK Billy for helping me find Jesus.
THANK YOU, Billy Graham.
And A VERY HAPPY BIRTHDAY!

I've no problem with anyone seeing Rapture movies.
If you're looking FOR ENTERTAINMENT, they're certainly better than watching graphic violence, sex, and vampire movies.
However, if you're looking FOR TRUTH, you won't find it in Rapture movies - I don't care how much they're promoted on Kristian TV - that should be a tip off right there - or which "Christian" author wrote the book on which the movie claims to be based.
What all Rapture movies and Rapture books have in common is they're SHORT ON TRUTH:
They say the Rapture can take place at any time, suddenly, out of the blue, when no one suspects it, WITHOUT WARNING, when Jesus told us in the first century A.D. some VERY SPECIFIC SIGNS that would indicate the beginning of the tribulation (Matthew 24:29; Revelation 6:12).
They say the Antichrist is some obscure character, living incognito in Europe or the Middle East, who appears out of nowhere and rises to power overnight, when SCRIPTURE has told us for 2,000 YEARS that he won't come from the earth, but arises FROM THE ABYSS (Revelation 11:7; 17:8).
When GOD has told us for two millenniums that this character IS SOMEONE VERY FAMOUS who ALREADY LIVED in the distant past and that people will be astonished to see him alive again (Revelation 17:8,11).
They say the world will be ruled by this mysterious individual, about whose identity NONE OF THEM has any clue, when Daniel chapters 7 and 11 and Revelation 13:2 and 18 have told us his identity for 2,500 years.
They misrepresent the end times by ASSUMING that, except for some of the laws this evil man will impose, like the taking of his mark, the world will go on pretty much as usual.
This when GOD has been telling us for almost 3,000 years that the tribulation world will be NOTHING like the world we know today (Isaiah, chapter 24, Revelation chapters 8-9).
This, after claiming to have "studied Bible prophecy" for 50 or 60 years and to be "experts" on the subject.
Apparently, these guys think that God gave the Apostle John the 8th and 9th chapters of Revelation just to keep him from dying of boredom at Patmos:
Because NOT ONE of their books, and NOT ONE of their movies, TELLS THE TRUTH about what will happen VERY, VERY, VERY soon to this world,THE MOMENT the Church is gone:
1. The earth will wobble and tilt on its axis (Isaiah 24:1, 6, 19-20).
2. Geography and topography will be drastically altered (Revelation 6:14).
3. One third of the land's surface - and whoever/whatever is on it - will be instantly burned to a crisp (Revelation 8:7).
4. Financial systems will tumble and crumble (Revelation 13:16-18).
5. Much of the water will be poisoned and kill those who drink it, and eventually there will be NO WATER AT ALL to drink (Revelation 8:10-11; 16:4-7).
6. Daylight will be drastically shortened (Revelation 8:12).
7. The oceans will turn to blood: all sea creatures will eventually die (Revelation 8:8-9; 16:3).
8. One third of trees and flora, and all the grass will be destroyed (Revelation 8:7)
9. Millions of demons will emerge from the abyss and sting people for 5 months (Revelation 9:1-11).
10. ONE THIRD OF REMAINING MANKIND (by my estimation close to 2 BILLION PEOPLE) will die (Revelation 9:15, 18).
11. Satan and his angels will be cast down to the earth and will be RIGHT HERE ON EARTH for the 3½ year tribulation wreaking all sorts of havoc (Revelation 12:9-12).
To put it mildly: It seems these self-styled "experts" have overlooked a few tiny details.
Check them out for yourselves. They've been in your Bibles for the past 2,800 years.
I can now state categorically, BASED ON SCRIPTURE, that the judgments mentioned in these two chapters will happen within 5 days - repeat, WITHIN 5 DAYS, after the Church is removed.
And the world that will be left for Antichrist to rule over will not resemble the world we know today IN THE LEAST:
So, if you like Rapture movies for entertainment, go see them, enjoy the popcorn, and have a good time.
But if you want prophetic Truth, you better go to the Books of Isaiah, Joel, Zechariah, Daniel and Revelation, and STUDY THEM for yourself, time and again, from beginning to end.
'Cause you'll NEVER get the Truth from BOOK SELLERS or from Kristian entertainers, and you sure as hell won't get it from Hollywood.

DON'T BE A HERO
I've heard in recent days from several guys who "feel" that they are to preach the Gospel DURING THE TRIBULATION to those WHO MISS the Rapture.
At first glance, their plan SEEMS good and praiseworthy, and I'm sure they mean well.
But despite their good intentions, they are wrong.
If these men are saved, as they claim to be, they themselves will be raptured, and WON'T BE AROUND to "teach" or "preach" anything to anyone who's MISSED the Rapture.
Moreover, free speech will be a thing of the past:
The HORRENDOUS PERSECUTION and DEVASTATING CONDITIONS during the tribulation WILL HARDLY ALLOW anyone to preach Christ.
Besides, God is WAY AHEAD of them...
God WANTS TO save EVERYONE (1 Timothy 2:4).
When the tribulation STARTS, He gives UNSAVED PEOPLE 10 DAYS to turn to Christ and be included in the great multitude that is caught up to meet Him in the air (Revelation 2:10, 7:9).
Even AFTER the Rapture God has made SUPERNATURAL provision FOR ANYONE WHO WANTS TO know the Truth (Jesus) and be saved during the tribulation:
1. He will have the Two Witnesses prophesying 1,260 days.
2. He will have 144,000 sealed Israelites instructing many.
3. And God will even (for the first time in history) send AN ANGEL flying thru mid-heaven to preach the Eternal Gospel to ALL the people on earth - and IN EVERY LANGUAGE (Revelation 14:6-7).
THE MAIN REASON He sends that angel to preach the Gospel is because the angel CAN'T BE REACHED, PERSECUTED, OR KILLED BY Antichrist.
AND THE ONLY REASON that the Two Witnesses and 144,000 Israelites will be able to prophesy and instruct during the tribulation is because they will be SUPERNATURALLY PROTECTED during their respective ministerial assignments (Revelation 9:4; 11:3-6; 14:1-4)
So, WHY would anyone WAIT UNTIL THE TRIBULATION to share Jesus with those who MISS the Rapture?
Wouldn't it be WAY BETTER to share the Gospel NOW - BEFORE the tribulation?
Wouldn't it be BETTER if those people to whom they plan to preach got saved NOW and wouldn't "miss" anything?
Not only DON'T these would-be "tribulation preachers" know whether they'll be around during the tribulation. They DON'T KNOW if they'll be around TOMORROW.
There's no such thing as "future preaching" or "future salvation" in the Bible.
If you KNOW Christ NOW, then NOW is when you're supposed to be sharing Him with others.
When God calls someone to preach, He calls them to do it NOW.
Likewise, when someone receives Christ into his/her heart and is saved, they MUST DO SO "NOW".
NOW (today) is THE DAY of Salvation.
As far as God is concerned "NOW" is the ONLY "accepted time" (2 Corinthians 6:2).
Therefore, while we appreciate these individuals' GOOD INTENTION, my advice to them is:
DON'T BE A HERO.
Don't "hide" your God-given "talent" or "calling" UNTIL THE TRIBULATION.
If you want to share Jesus with others, DO IT TODAY, DO IT NOW.
If you DON'T do it now, when it's allowed and no one persecutes you, WHAT CHANCE IS THERE that you'll do it WHEN SOMEONE THREATENS TO CUT OFF YOUR HEAD?
I mean, really... (and I say this lovingly) it's time for some people to GROW UP, be REALISTIC, and STOP LIVING in prophetic La-La Land.
DON'T WAIT until the tribulation to share Christ.
If, indeed, He has called you to preach, DO IT NOW.
Ministry is always NOW.
WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 4, 2015
It always amuses me how religious morons find time to nitpick and HINDER those who are doing something for the Kingdom of God:
They DON'T find time to share Christ with anyone.
They DON'T bring ANYONE to Salvation.
They DON'T care if the whole world goes to hell.
They DON'T help anyone, or serve anyone in ANY way.
But they DO make it their life's mission TO GRUMBLE ABOUT THE "SINNER'S PRAYER" posted on this website.
They say that "it's NOT FOUND IN the Bible" and that "it doesn't save anyone".
They are RIGHT - on both counts.
That prayer is NOT found in the Bible.
That prayer, in and of itself, DOES NOT SAVE anyone.
And I HAVE NEVER SAID that it does.
ONLY if the prayer COMES FROM THE HEART, and ONLY if the person doing the praying REALLY MEANS IT, will it save them.
And, even then, it's NOT the prayer itself that saves: JESUS IS THE ONE WHO DOES THE SAVING (Acts 4:11-12).
However, in order to SAVE SOMEONE Jesus MUST BE RECEIVED (invited) into a person's heart.
John 1:12 says very clearly"TO ALL WHO RECEIVED HIM to them gave He power to become the sons of God".
My question is: HOW does one RECEIVE JESUS?
Unless we want to accuse our precious Lord of being A SPIRITUAL RAPIST, WHO FORCES HIS WAY INTO OUR HEARTS WITHOUT BEING INVITED, then Jesus MUST BE invited and RECEIVED into our hearts.
I don't know about you, but EVERY SINGLE TIME I've been invited somewhere, WORDS HAVE BEEN INVOLVED.
I was either invited through SPOKEN WORDS, through WRITTEN WORDS, or a combination of both, but WORDS and COMMUNICATION BETWEEN THE TWO PARTIES WERE ALWAYS - without exception - involved in the inviting.
HOW do these idiots propose that one INVITE (RECEIVE) Jesus into one's heart WITHOUT WORDS?
Furthermore, Jesus said "EVERYONE WHO CONFESSES Me before men, I will also confess him before My Father who is in heaven" (Matthew 10:32).
Paul said "if you believe in your heart AND CONFESS WITH YOUR MOUTH the Lord Jesus Christ, YOU WILL BE SAVED: for WITH THE HEART man believes unto righteousness, and WITH THE MOUTH CONFESSION IS MADE unto Salvation" (Romans 10:9).
CONFESSING always involves WORDS.
There's NO SUCH THING AS "confession" WITHOUT words.
So, while the sinner's prayer may not appear in the Bible VERBATIM, praying it is VERY MUCH IN LINE WITH the Bible.
The so-called "sinner's prayer" -- in its multiple variations -- serves simply AS A GUIDE for those who want to OPEN THEIR HEARTS, receive Christ, and INVITE HIM to enter their innermost beings.
There is NO MAGICAL POWER in that prayer, or its words.
And if it's NOT PRAYED FROM THE HEART - if the person doing the praying, DOESN'T REALLY MEAN IT - he/she could pray it A MILLION TIMES, and will be JUST AS LOST as he/she was BEFORE he/she prayed it.
That is why our website instructs those who want to receive Christ to "Say this and MEAN IT, WITH ALL YOUR HEART".
I can say FROM PERSONAL EXPERIENCE that the sinner's prayer was OF INVALUABLE HELP to me many years ago when I first gave my heart to Jesus.
I came from A VERY TRADITIONAL and VERY RELIGIOUS background, where the idea of receiving or inviting Jesus into one's heart WAS UNHEARD OF.
It simply wasn't taught or EVEN MENTIONED.
I wanted Jesus, but had NO IDEA how to go about receiving Him.
I'm SO THANKFUL that I heard three Baptist preachers: Theodore Epp, Oliver Greene and Billy Graham lead people in various "versions" of that prayer, where I finally KNEW WHAT TO DO, got on my knees, prayed MY OWN VERSION, and GOT SAVED.
Glory to Jesus... I haven't been the same person since.
Therefore, the naysayers have reached me too late.
And that is WHY I offer NOT ONE, BUT SEVERAL "sample" sinner's prayers - and WILL CONTINUE TO OFFER them - WHETHER ANYONE ELSE LIKES IT OR NOT.
However, I would be remiss if I didn't make one final point:
WHERE does the Bible say that we can ONLY PRAY prayers FOUND IN the Bible?
If we can ONLY pray prayers FOUND IN the Bible, then we'd be EXTREMELY LIMITED in what we CAN pray.
That means if you can't pay the mortgage, you CAN'T PRAY that God will provide the money you need, because SUCH PRAYER IS NOT FOUND IN the Bible.
Likewise, if you're unemployed, YOU CAN'T PRAY to get that JOB you really want and need... matter of fact, you CAN'T PRAY FOR A JOB, PERIOD -- because there's NO SUCH PRAYER FOUND IN THE BIBLE.
Therefore, those who use the "not found in the Bible" excuse to justify their stupidity are nothing but TWO-FACED HYPOCRITES!!!
They DON'T CARE about Jesus or the Bible.
They DON'T CARE about anyone's Salvation.
They are SATAN'S PAWNS TRYING TO OBSTRUCT God's ministry.
And God better NOT CATCH THEM praying a prayer NOT found in Scripture, because THEY WILL BE JUDGED WITH THE SAME MEASURE with which they judge others (Matthew 7:1).
Our teaching has always been that we should NOT pray for ANYTHING that CONTRADICTS God's Word or that opposes His expressed Will.
The sinner's prayer, as I demonstrate above, IS VERY MUCH IN LINE WITH Scripture and DOES NOT oppose or contradict God's Word IN ANY way, shape or form.
Saying that we can ONLY PRAY PRAYERS FOUND in Scripture is UTTERLY RIDICULOUS!
It's also UNBIBLICAL.
Jesus Himself said "ask and YOU SHALL RECEIVE" (Luke 11:9).
He set NO RESTRICTIONS as to what we may ask.
Again in John 14:13-14:
"And WHATSOEVER YOU SHALL ASK in my name, will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son. IF YOU ASK ME ANYTHING in My name, I WILL DO IT"
Surely, "if you ASK ME ANYTHING, I WILL DO IT" must INCLUDE the MOST IMPORTANT THING WE CAN ASK FOR: Salvation.
Jesus says it again in Matthew 21:22:
"And ALL THINGS WHATSOEVER you ask in prayer, believing, YOU SHALL RECEIVE"
Last time I checked "ALL THINGS WHATSOEVER" MEANS that you can ask for ANYTHING... whether there's a specific prayer for it in the Bible or not.
Provided of course THAT IT'S NOT CONTRARY TO the Will of God as expressed in His written Word.
Since SALVATION is THE MOST IMPORTANT thing for any human, and SINCE IT'S WHAT THE BIBLE IS ALL ABOUT, I have to assume that "WHATSOEVER we ask" MUST INCLUDE ASKING Jesus to SAVE US by entering our hearts.
Since God wants EVERYONE saved, the sinner's prayer is TOTALLY SCRIPTURAL and TOTALLY in line with His will (1 Timothy 2:4).
What is TOTALLY UNBIBLICAL is NOT inviting-receiving Christ into one's heart: in fact, IT'S THE ONLY SIN that will send people to hell (John 3:18).
So much for that moronic objection.
I vividly remember THE VERY FIRST TIME I HEARD such "objection" to the sinner's prayer, many years ago, as I was contemplating inviting Jesus into my own heart:
The original "objection" CAME FROM SATAN.
He said "you SHOULDN'T DO THAT: these people DO NOT BELONG TO YOUR RELIGION".
Praise God for His Most Holy Spirit who then said:
"HOW CAN YOU GO WRONG by RECEIVING Jesus?"
I ask THAT SAME QUESTION to these spawns of Satan today:
HOW can ANYONE GO WRONG --- BY RECEIVING JESUS????
I tell them THE SAME THING that Jesus told the religious Jews and Pharisees of old (John 8:44):
"You BELONG TO YOUR FATHER THE DEVIL".

RESURRECTIONS & DESTINATIONS
"For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ SHALL ALL BE MADE ALIVE.
But EVERY MAN IN HIS OWN ORDER: Christ the first fruits; afterward they that are Christ's at his coming.
Then comes the end, when he shall have delivered up the kingdom to God, even the Father; WHEN HE SHALL HAVE PUT DOWN ALL RULE AND ALL AUTHORITY AND POWER.
For HE MUST REIGN UNTIL HE HAS PUT ALL ENEMIES UNDER HIS FEET.
THE LAST ENEMY THAT SHALL BE DESTROYED IS DEATH." (1 Corinthians 15:22-26)
There are various resurrections in the Bible, as well as various destinations.
INDIVIDUAL RESURRECTIONS in the Bible are:
1. The widow's son at Zarephath that Elisha raised from the dead (1 Kings 17:17-24).
2. The son of the Shunnamite woman raised by Elisha (2 Kings 4:35).
3. The man who came back to life after his corpse came in contact with Elisha's bones (2 Kings 13:21).
4. Jesus raised Jairus' daughter (Matthew 9:25; Mark 5:42; Luke 8:55).
5. Jesus raised the widow's son at Naim (Luke 7:13-15).
6. Lazarus (John 11:43-44).
7. Jesus (Matthew 28:5-7).
8. Dorcas, raised from the dead by Peter (Acts 9:36-42).
9. The young man Eutychus who fell from a window and was raised back to life by Paul (Acts 20:9-12).
10. Alexander the Great, the Antichrist (Revelation 11:7; 17:8).
11. Judas Iscariot (Revelation 13:11-12).
GROUP RESURRECTIONS are:
1. The Old Testament saints who rose from the dead and ascended to heaven with Jesus (Matthew 27:52-53).
2. The "dead in Christ", who RISE and join the "living in Christ" at the Rapture (1 Thessalonians 4:15-17).
3. The Two Witnesses (Revelation 11:10-12).
4. TRIBULATION MARTYRS who turn to Christ DURING the tribulation and die for their faith ARE RAISED FROM THE DEAD AT THE START OF the Millennium (Revelation 20:4).
5. EVERYONE ELSE gets raised at the END OF the Millennium (Revelation 20:11-15).
EVERYONE involved in these resurrections is saved, EXCEPT Individuals 10 & 11 and Group 5.
The Antichrist and false prophet (individual resurrections 10 &11) get tossed ALIVE into the ETERNAL lake of fire (Revelation 19:20).
Those in Group 5 are presently in hell.
They have UNTIL THE END OF the Millennium to repent and put their trust in Jesus (Revelation 20:11-15).
Those who do, are written in the Book of Life, and get to populate THE NEW EARTH (Revelation 21:1-8).
Those who DON'T, are thrown, along with hell itself, into the ETERNAL lake of fire (Revelation 20:15).
Which of these final destinations will be yours?
MONDAY, NOVEMBER 2, 2015
RESURRECTION FOR ALL
EVERYONE reading this message will either rise from the dead or never die (1 Thessalonians 4:15-17).
Again: EVERY PERSON reading this message, and every individual WHO HAS EVER LIVED, will either RISE FROM THE DEAD, or NOT die (1 Corinthians 15:50-55).
ALL who HAVE died, and ALL who WILL yet die, will be resurrected from the dead, WHETHER THEY ARE SAVED or UNSAVED (Revelation 20:4, 11-15).
It's sort of comical for atheists, agnostics, skeptics and unbelievers TO QUESTION the Resurrection of Jesus, because whether they believe or not, whether they like it or not, ALL OF THEM will be resurrected.
If THEY will rise from the dead, WHY ON EARTH COULDN'T JESUS rise from the dead?
Think of all the dumb books (and they ARE REALLY, REALLY DUMB) written by Christ haters trying to "explain" the Resurrection as "mass hallucination", which DOES NOT EXIST in the annals of psychiatry.
Or that Jesus "didn't really die", but rather survived the horrendous beating, lashing, Crucifixion and spear through his side, and was "revived" by the coolness and dampness of the tomb.
Even if THAT lunacy could be proven, they still couldn't explain HOW HE, in His extremely feeble physical condition, CAME OUT OF THE TOMB and how it was empty three days and nights after His Crucifixion.
WHO REMOVED the extremely large and heavy stone so that the moribund Jesus could get out ALIVE?
HOW COULD HE "ESCAPE" IN His near-death condition, when there were 16 Roman soldiers posted outside the tomb, armed to the teeth?
WHO PROVIDED the miraculous medical attention He would have needed in order to "survive"?
Those books NOT WORTH THE PAPER on which they're printed and which, THREE YEARS LATER, NO ONE REMEMBERS...
But THEIR AUTHORS WILL BE REMEMBERED, and will be RESURRECTED THEMSELVES.
They will also be judged ACCORDING TO THEIR WORKS (Revelation 20:13).
Perhaps then they will realize their folly and ungodly bias:
"Multitudes who sleep in the dust of the earth will awake: SOME TO EVERLASTING LIFE, OTHERS TO SHAME AND EVERLASTING CONTEMPT" (Daniel 12:2).
"...FOR THE HOUR IS COMING, IN WHICH ALL THAT ARE IN THE GRAVES SHALL HEAR HIS VOICE, AND SHALL COME FORTH; THEY THAT HAVE DONE GOOD, UNTO THE RESURRECTION OF LIFE; AND THEY THAT HAVE DONE EVIL, UNTO THE RESURRECTION OF CONDEMNATION" (John 5:28-29).
Every human being - from Adam to those living at the end of the Millennium - will either NOT die AT ALL, or RISE FROM THE DEAD.
The ONLY DIFFERENCES will be:
1) THE ORDER (time) at which they will rise.
2) THEIR ULTIMATE destination.
SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 1, 2015
I'd be the first to admit that eschatology, as such, does not affect Salvation:
People can have WRONG eschatology and still be saved.
Provided, of course,that THEY KNOW Jesus, in the biblical sense:
That Jesus HAS PENETRATED their hearts, and deepest recesses of their beings.
However, ESCHATOLOGY DOES MATTER.
And it's particularly important in a candidate for the presidency.
It's disappointing to see how many ignorant evangelicals are quick to throw their support behind Adventist cult member Ben Carson's candidacy.
Forget whether Adventists have wrong eschatology - which I'll get to in a minute - THEY HAVE WRONG SOTERIOLOGY.
It's not that Adventists ARE WRONG on Bible prophecy, it's that THEY ARE WRONG ABOUT SALVATION.
Salvation is THE MOST IMPORTANT DOCTRINE of all, since it determines whether one is saved or lost.
However, since one's views on eschatology have clear implications for how one carries out policy, particularly FOREIGN policy, this begs the question:
WHAT DO ADVENTISTS believe about THE END TIMES?
I have dealt with the 7th Day Adventist cult for many years, and have trounced their brainwashed puppets many, many times, and totally destroyed their stupid arguments:
1. They DO NOT believe in the pre-trib Rapture.
They ONLY believe in the Second Coming (Advent) of Christ, hence the name "Adventist".
2. They believe that the Pope is the Antichrist.
I'm not exactly a fan of socialist Pope Francis, but the Antichrist he's definitely NOT.
3. They believe that the United States of America is "the second beast" described in Revelation 13:11-12, which supports the first beast (the Pope).
4. They believe the "mark" of Antichrist, necessary in order to buy or sell, is NOT this man's symbol (mark), his name, or the number of his name, etched on a person's right hand or forehead, AS SCRIPTURE CLEARLY AND UNMISTAKABLY describes (Revelation 13:16-18), but rather the worship of God on Sunday instead of Saturday.
5. They believe that it's the U.S.A. ("the second beast") that passes a worldwide "Sunday law" that FORCES people everywhere to worship God on Sunday instead of Saturday.
They have believed this nonsense for the past 150 years, ever since this heretical sect was invented by false prophetess Ellen G. White.
Of course, Adventists HAVE NO ANSWERS when one asks:
1. WHERE in Scripture is this "Sunday law" mentioned?
In case you're wondering - NOWHERE!!!
2. HOW will this happen when the U.S. is predominantly a Protestant nation, and they claim the Antichrist is the Catholic Pope?
3. HOW can predominantly Protestant U.S.A. exercise all papal authority in the Pope's presence? (Revelation 13:12).
4. If the second beast is a nation (the U.S.A.) and NOT an individual, HOW does it MIRACULOUSLY "make fire come down FROM HEAVEN" in the sight of men, as described in Revelation 13:13?
5. HOW does the U.S.A. perform "miraculous signs" to deceive mankind? (Revelation 13:14).
6. HOW does the U.S.A. instill life (spirit) TO THE IMAGE OF THE BEAST (presumably, the image of the Pope), causing it to speak and have them killed who refuse to worship it? (Revelation 13:15)
7. HOW can the U.S.A. be "the false prophet"?
8. The second beast IS the false prophet (pseudologos or FALSE PREACHER) since it is he who promotes Antichrist worship. That's what A PREACHER does.
And if the "second beast" and "false prophet" are not one and the same, then WHO IS the "false prophet?
9. And, if they're not one and the same, then there would be NOT ONE, but TWO "false prophets" when the Bible mentions ONLY ONE during the tribulation (Revelation 16:13; 19:20).
10. HOW can three unclean, demonic spirits come OUT OF THE MOUTH of the dragon (Satan), the Antichrist (presumably, the Pope) and OUT OF THE UNITED STATES' MOUTH? (Revelation 16:13-14)
11. If the Pope of ROME is the Antichrist, WHY WOULD HE DESTROY Rome, the seat of his own power and authority, as Revelation 17:15-18 clearly describes? Makes NO SENSE at all.
12. Since there is no pre-trib Rapture, according to the Adventist cult, and since at Christ's Second Coming, the beast and false prophet (presumably, the good, old U.S.A.) are hurled alive into the lake of fire, then WHAT GOOD IS IT FOR ANYONE IN THE U.S.A. to receive Christ?
Won't they be tossed into the lake of fire ANYWAY, according to Revelation 19:20?
I could - under no circumstance - vote for a member of this satanic cult anymore than I could vote for Hillary.
Americans like spunk. It's hard to believe that they would want as President someone as BORING, self-righteous, unimposing and low-key as Ben Carson.
And I still cling to the hope that all born-again believers will be raptured BEFORE the November 2016 presidential elections in the U.S.
However, ideas HAVE CONSEQUENCES.
The question is: if for some reason, it DOESN'T happen, and we're still around in November of next year...
Do we REALLY want a guy occupying the Oval Office who believes this sort of UNBIBLICAL, nonsensical prophetic fantasy?
God might just allow Hillary, who was a mediocre Secretary of State, to become AN EVEN WORSE President, finish the job for Obama, and drive this country ALL THE WAY INTO the ground.
Or He may allow a Seventh Day Adventist to lead "the second beast" into FULL subservience to Antichrist, as HIS FALSE RELIGION teaches.
Either way, this country's going down the tubes.
And God may even use DUMB "evangelicals" to do it.
