Operating in the gifts of the Holy Spirit.

escape

  ” There is a river of the Holy Spirit that comes from God whose streams makes glad “believers” and fills them with joy and peace. As a result this river gives them joy and gladness, thanksgiving and the voice of melody. Yes, Joy and gladness are the trade marks of being filled with the power of the Holy Spirit. Christianity is not only to be understood with our hearts and minds and appreciated for its many miracles, signs and wonders but it’s to be experienced through the moving of the Holy Spirit. ”

John 16:7 “Nevertheless I tell you the truth; It is expedient for you that I go away: for if I go not away, the Comforter will not come unto you; but if I depart, I will send him unto you.”

“I believe that one of the biggest reasons that the body of Christ hasn’t made a greater impact on our generation today is because of our failure to operate in the gifts of the Holy Spirit. Without a doubt, Jesus and the first apostles used the gifts like a bell, calling men to their message and confirming that God was truly the One speaking through them”. Andrew Wommack

Hebrews 2:3-4 says, “How shall we escape, if we neglect so great salvation; which at first began to be spoken by the Lord, and was confirmed unto us by them that heard him; God also bearing them witness, both with signs and wonders, and with divers miracles, and gifts of the Holy Ghost, according to his own will?” The Lord bore witness to the accuracy of their message through miracles and gifts of the Holy Spirit.

In Mark 16:17-18, Jesus said all true believers would flow in the miraculous: “And these signs will follow them that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues; They shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover.”

The vast majority of preaching  and Christian living done in the name of the Lord today is still really without the power of the Holy Spirit manifest through the gifts of the Holy Spirit. This was,  is not the way the Lord Jesus Christ had intended it to be.for sure..No one can have an effective life or ministry without the power of God’s Holy Spirit working in him or her. This fact can’t be argued by anyone who truly believes the Bible is God’s Word. The Scriptures are replete with proof that it is “not by might, nor by power, but by my Spirit, saith the LORD of hosts” (Zech. 4:6). It is  true that the Holy Spirit is still willing to move as in biblical times  then there is no excuse for living lives so far removed from that great  victory portrayed in God’s Word.

If a Christian’s life isn’t full of the personal supernatural, it’s a pretentious one rather. Now  the gifts of the Holy Spirit are always flowing.as  God doesn’t turn them “on” and “off.” We are the ones who turn them  “on” or “off.”   The Lord Jesus Christ  is always ready to flow through us in the gifts of the Holy Spirit. No one has received everything that the Holy Spirit has for them. Therefore, the Lord is always seeking to release more to us through His supernatural gifts. Whenever we put ourselves in a mode to be His channel, His gifts will flow

Most  churches have fallen away from ministering in the gifts of the Holy Spirit. The gifts that operate even in in most “Spirit-filled” churches are simply words of exhortation or prophecy. There is much more even here . that should be manifested.

1 Corinthians 12:31, “But covet earnestly the best gifts.”

1 Corinthians 14:1, “Desire spiritual gifts.”

 You do also still  have to seek these gifts with all your heart (Jer. 29:13).  Thhs that  also includes the nine Gifts of the Holy Spirit and  the Spirit of Truth, Holiness, Wisdom, of the Fear of the Lord, of Counsel, Spirit of Grace and the Spirit of Knowledge. 

There are nine Gifts of the Holy Spirit. “For to one is given by the Spirit the word of wisdom; to another the word of knowledge by the same Spirit; To another faith by the same Spirit; to another the gifts of healing(s) by the same Spirit; To another the working of miracles; to another prophecy; to another discerning of spirits; to another divers kinds of tongues; to another the interpretation of tongues:” (1Corinthians 12:8-10)

There are still nine Gifts of the Holy Spirit today even.  So seek after and learn to sue them all, The nine Gifts are often separated into three groups.

The first group is commonly referred to as the Power Gifts.  They are called the Power Gifts because they DO something.  They are:  The Gift of Faith, the Gifts of Healings and the Working of Miracles.

The second group is commonly referred to as the Revelation Gifts.  These are Gifts that REVEAL something.  They are:  The Word of Wisdom, the Word of Knowledge and the Discerning of Spirits.

The third group is commonly referred to as the Utterance Gifts.  This is because they SAY something.  They are:  The Gift of Prophecy, the Gift of Tongues and the Gift of Interpretation of Tongues.

Of course you can expect the devil and his followers to try to mislead you, distract you, turn you away from your seeking.. just perish on forward in it.The truth is that denial of the Holy Spirit’s  ministry and power of the Holy Spirit is the devil’s  theology along with his other lies now too such as that alcoholics are not responsible for their actions, depression is a chemical imbalance, and homosexuality is genetic.

No true Christian who has received Jesus Christ as lord and their personal savior now  can say that they now have no gift of the Spirit from God. God has given all believers gifts; some have several but also now everyone can be equipped, completed, with these 9 gifts. These 9 non optional gifts of the Spirit are given not solely  for the believer usage  but are to be used  for the Body of Christ. It is to make the Body complete. These gifts are intended for the church to edify it, to strengthen it, to feed it, to exhort it, to encourage it and to have the Body of Christ empowered to do the work of Christ. These gifts are always to exalt Christ, to witness of God’s  power, to build up the Body, and to work in the Body of Christ  world wide too;

Acts 2:36 Therefore let all the house of Israel know assuredly, that God hath made that same Jesus, whom ye have crucified, both Lord and Christ.

Hebrews 13: 8 Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and to day, and for ever.

Acts 1:8, “But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth.”

My life also wasn’t always  perfect  and still isn’t now. But receiving the baptism of the Holy Spirit opened up a whole new, dynamic relationship with the Lord  My life was transformed instantly. Before the baptism of the Holy Spirit, I was in fear; afterward, I was as bold as a lion (Prov. 28:1). and noext now  It wasn’t me living anymore, but Christ was living through me.

Luke 11: 13 If ye then, being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your children: how much more shall your heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to them that ask him?

Matthew 7:7,  “Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you:”

Part of this package means receiving  by faith continually and freely at all times  also the fruit of the Holy Spirit ,

Galatians 5: 16    This I say then, Walk in the Spirit, and ye shall not fulfil the lust of the flesh. 17    For the flesh lusteth against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh: and these are contrary the one to the other: so that ye cannot do the things that ye would. 18    But if ye be led of the Spirit, ye are not under the law. 19    Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these; Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness, 20    Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies, 21    Envyings, murders, drunkenness, revellings, and such like: of the which I tell you before, as I have also told you in time past, that they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God. 22    But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, 23    Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law. 24    And they that are Christ’s have crucified the flesh with the affections and lusts. 25    If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit.

Each and every Born again, Spirit filled Christian is clearly a part of “… the body of Christ, and each one of you is a part of it. And God has placed in the church first of all apostles (Missionaries), second prophets, third teachers, then miracles, then gifts of healing, of helping, of guidance, and of different kinds of tongues. Are all apostles? Are all prophets? Are all teachers? Do all work miracles? Do all have gifts of healing? Do all speak in tongues? Do all interpret? I Cor. 12:28-31 .

Now as you pursue your own Ministry and earnestly desire the greater gifts“ I also now do pray you not only seek after all of the Holy Spirit gifts,lacking in none of them too  and that  you will utilize them all next  to the strengthening of the whole Body of Christ, of  which you are a part

How to Be Filled with the Holy Spirit

loved-4
Our Lord Jesus Christ had came to  save the whole world, each person personally  from death due to the result of everyone’s personal sins and to fill them with the Holy Spirit..  and do accept it freely.. and do see also  http://jesussayscome.wordpress.com/2013/03/24/the-need-of-dying-to-self-to-live-a-full-christian-life/   
.
How to Be Filled with the Holy Spirit
.
John 3:14    And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of man be lifted up: 15 That whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have eternal life.16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. 17 For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved. 18    He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.
.
“You will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you” (Acts 1:8). Though all Christians are indwelt by the Holy Spirit, not all Christians are filled (directed and empowered) by the Holy Spirit.
.
There are several ways of understanding “Filling with the Holy Spirit.” Some people teach that it happens AUTOMATICALLY at conversion: when one asks Lord  Jesus Christ into his or her heart. Others believe that filling occurs at some point in rime during the believer’s full acceptance of Jesus Christ both as Lord and Savior. No matter when you are filled with the Holy Spirit you do really  experience it, show it, know it.. All believers are indwelled by the Holy Spirit; however, not all believers are firstly now “filled” with the Spirit and His power, otherwise God would not have to command us to be. The lack of spiritual power is all too evident among believers. Being filled with the Holy Spirit is Not an option. If you have already received Christ, in Ephesians 5:18 God commands all believers to be filled with the Spirit; therefore, we know it is God’s will for everyone. Again it is really a command from God and really not an option.
.
Whatever  there are several Scriptural steps are most certainly initially involved.
.
1:  In preparation for The Filling of the Spirit, Confess known sin and seek and receive forgiveness for all sin even by reliance on the  related completed work of Jesus Christ on the cross for our sins. The Scriptures teach that God works in those who lead a humble, broken, contrite heart.
.
2 In further preparation for The Filling of the Spirit, one must become a confessed believer in Jesus Christ as Son of God who has made the full payment for our sins. Without this act, an acclamation of faith, one cannot be filled with the Holy Spirit, for biblically, the Holy Spirit is the Spirit of God and of Christ.
.
Acts 16:31 And they said, Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved, and thy house.  Matthew 10:32 Whosoever therefore shall confess me before men, him will I confess also before my Father which is in heaven. 33 But whosoever shall deny me before men, him will I also deny before my Father which is in heaven.
.
3: Read examples of people being filled with the Holy Spirit in the new Testament. Such as Acts2:4, Acts10:44-46 and Acts19:1-6  – Romans 10:17 So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God. Hebrews 11:6 But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.
.
4: Pray for,  Desire, seek  to be fully controlled by the Holy Spirit, to be under the full influence of the Spirit or to be constantly led by God..  Personally Claim the promises of God that he will reveal himself and fill you  with the Holy Spirit. .John 6:37 All that the Father giveth me shall come to me; and him that cometh to me I will in no wise cast out. Acts 17:27 That they should seek the Lord, if haply they might feel after him, and find him, though he be not far from every one of us: Hebrews 11:6 But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.  Luke 11:13 If ye then, being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your children: how much more shall your heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to them that ask him? 
.

By faith claim the fullness of the Holy Spirit, according to: God’s command  Be filled with the Spirit. “And do not get drunk with wine, for that is dissipation, but be filled with the Spirit” (Ephesians  and His Promise – He will always answer when we pray according to His will. “And this is the confidence which we have before Him, that, if we ask anything according to His will, He hears us. And if we know that He hears us in whatever we ask, we know that we have the requests which we have asked of Him” (1 John 5:14, 15)

.

Pray “Dear Father, I admit I am a sinner, I do need You. I acknowledge that I have been directing my own life and that, as a result, I have sinned against You. I thank You that You have forgiven my sins through Christ’s death on the cross for me. I now invite Christ to again take His place on the throne of my life. Fill me with the Holy Spirit as You commanded me to be filled, and as You promised in Your Word that You would do if I asked in faith. I now thank You for directing my life and for filling me with the Holy Spirit.”

.

Carnal Christians still cannot experience the Abundant and Fruitful Christian Life  Carnal Man (One who has received Christ, but who lives in defeat because he is trying to live the Christian life in his own strength)
.
Now Find and go to a good Church where they believe in the separate baptism of the holy spirit experience and get prayed on.. as every persons spirit filed in the new testament occurred by the laying on of hands..
.
Acts 8:14    Now when the apostles which were at Jerusalem heard that Samaria had received the word of God, they sent unto them Peter and John: 15    Who, when they were come down, prayed for them, that they might receive the Holy Ghost:16    (For as yet he was fallen upon none of them: only they were baptized in the name of the Lord Jesus.)17    Then laid they their hands on them, and they received the Holy Ghost.
.
Next your life will demonstrate more and more of the anointing of of the Holy  Spirit ( acts 10:38)   and you will reflect, be more and more conformed to the image of Christ (Romans 12:2; 2 Corinthians 3:18). Your prayer life and study of God’s Word will become more meaningful. You will experience His power in witnessing (Acts 1:8). You will be prepared for spiritual conflict against the world (1 John 2:15-17); against the flesh (Galatians 5:16-17); and against Satan (1 Peter 5:7-9; Ephesians 6:10-13). You will experience His power to resist temptation and sin (1 Corinthians 10:13; Philippians 4:13; Ephesians 1:19-23; 2 Timothy 1:7; Romans 6:1-16).
.
1 John 1: 1    That which was from the beginning, which we have heard, which we have seen with our eyes, which we have looked upon, and our hands have handled, of the Word of life; 2    (For the life was manifested, and we have seen it, and bear witness, and shew unto you that eternal life, which was with the Father, and was manifested unto us;) 3    That which we have seen and heard declare we unto you, that ye also may have fellowship with us: and truly our fellowship is with the Father, and with his Son Jesus Christ. 4    And these things write we unto you, that your joy may be full.5    This then is the message which we have heard of him, and declare unto you, that God is light, and in him is no darkness at all.6    If we say that we have fellowship with him, and walk in darkness, we lie, and do not the truth: 7    But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin. 8    If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. 9    If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. 10    If we say that we have not sinned, we make him a liar, and his word is not in us.
.
Acts 10:38 38    How God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Ghost and with power: who went about doing good, and healing all that were oppressed of the devil; for God was with him.
.
Romans 8:9 But ye are not in the flesh, but in the Spirit, if so be that the Spirit of God dwell in you. Now if any man have not the Spirit of Christ, he is none of his.
.
 
The Christian life is  personaly impossible,   it is impossible without the Holy Spirit –on our own. Trying to live the Christian life by your own efforts is like a ship trying to sail on dry land…
.
Ephesians 5:
1    Be ye therefore followers of God, as dear children;
2    And walk in love, as Christ also hath loved us, and hath given himself for us an offering and a sacrifice to God for a sweetsmelling savour.
3    But fornication, and all uncleanness, or covetousness, let it not be once named among you, as becometh saints;
4    Neither filthiness, nor foolish talking, nor jesting, which are not convenient: but rather giving of thanks.
5    For this ye know, that no whoremonger, nor unclean person, nor covetous man, who is an idolater, hath any inheritance in the kingdom of Christ and of God.
6    Let no man deceive you with vain words: for because of these things cometh the wrath of God upon the children of disobedience.
7    Be not ye therefore partakers with them.
8    For ye were sometimes darkness, but now are ye light in the Lord: walk as children of light:
9    (For the fruit of the Spirit is in all goodness and righteousness and truth;)
10    Proving what is acceptable unto the Lord.
11    And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them.
12    For it is a shame even to speak of those things which are done of them in secret.
13    But all things that are reproved are made manifest by the light: for whatsoever doth make manifest is light.
14    Wherefore he saith, Awake thou that sleepest, and arise from the dead, and Christ shall give thee light.
15    See then that ye walk circumspectly, not as fools, but as wise,
16    Redeeming the time, because the days are evil.
17    Wherefore be ye not unwise, but understanding what the will of the Lord is.
18    And be not drunk with wine, wherein is excess; but be filled with the Spirit;
19    Speaking to yourselves in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody in your heart to the Lord;
20    Giving thanks always for all things unto God and the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ;
21    Submitting yourselves one to another in the fear of God.
22    Wives, submit yourselves unto your own husbands, as unto the Lord.
23    For the husband is the head of the wife, even as Christ is the head of the church: and he is the saviour of the body.
24    Therefore as the church is subject unto Christ, so let the wives be to their own husbands in every thing.
25    Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave himself for it;
26    That he might sanctify and cleanse it with the washing of water by the word,
27    That he might present it to himself a glorious church, not having spot, or wrinkle, or any such thing; but that it should be holy and without blemish.
28    So ought men to love their wives as their own bodies. He that loveth his wife loveth himself.
29    For no man ever yet hated his own flesh; but nourisheth and cherisheth it, even as the Lord the church:
30    For we are members of his body, of his flesh, and of his bones.
31    For this cause shall a man leave his father and mother, and shall be joined unto his wife, and they two shall be one flesh.
32    This is a great mystery: but I speak concerning Christ and the church.
33    Nevertheless let every one of you in particular so love his wife even as himself; and the wife see that she reverence her husband.
 .
As I have often said you are holy spirit filled Christian and taught  lead by the Holy Spirit or you are a carnal Christian or an unchristian, a natural man  and thus hold mostly false Biblical insights. and it will clearly show as to who you are by what you believe in but also with whom you do associate with.. There are not a multiple optional possibility of beliefs or of truths in God Kingdoms 
.
Carnal Christians are so close to being unbelievers that they are almost indistinguishable from them. Such Christians are characterized by apathy, division, ongoing strife and a very low EQ! Carnal Christians “bite and devour one another” (Galatians 5:15)
.
“And I brethren, could not speak to you as to spiritual men, but as to carnal men, as to babes in Christ. I gave you milk to drink, not solid food; for you were not yet able to receive it. Indeed, even now you are not yet able, for you are still carnal. For since there is jealousy and strife among you, are you not fleshy, and are you not walking like mere men?”
.
It is the Holy Spirit who renews, transforms, redeems  our perceptions, beliefs, emotions, and physical bodies and who gives us the wisdom, discernments, insights. as “I have been crucified with Christ: and I myself no longer live, but Christ lives in me. And the real life I now have within this body is a result of my trusting in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me” (Galatians 2:20).
.
1 Thessalonians 4:
1    Furthermore then we beseech you, brethren, and exhort you by the Lord Jesus, that as ye have received of us how ye ought to walk and to please God, so ye would abound more and more.
2    For ye know what commandments we gave you by the Lord Jesus.
3    For this is the will of God, even your sanctification, that ye should abstain from fornication:
4    That every one of you should know how to possess his vessel in sanctification and honour;
5    Not in the lust of concupiscence, even as the Gentiles which know not God:
6    That no man go beyond and defraud his brother in any matter: because that the Lord is the avenger of all such, as we also have forewarned you and testified.
7    For God hath not called us unto uncleanness, but unto holiness.
8    He therefore that despiseth, despiseth not man, but God, who hath also given unto us his holy Spirit.
9    But as touching brotherly love ye need not that I write unto you: for ye yourselves are taught of God to love one another.
.
Why aren’t more Christians filled with the Spirit?Simply because of undusbmitted, un confssed  sin. We choose to disobey god. This can take the form of pride: doing and wanting things our way. Living a self sentered life, and We don’t give God control of our finances; we’ve worked hard for our money and it’s ours now. We don’t give God control of our relationships, assciates, choices too;. We don’t give God control of our personal morality; that’s nobody’s business but our own—not even God’s. (Proverbs 3:34).  [God] mocks proud mockers but gives grace to the humble”  Proverbs 29:  23    A man’s pride shall bring him low: but honour shall uphold the humble in spirit.24    Whoso is partner with a thief hateth his own soul: he heareth cursing, and bewrayeth it not. 25    The fear of man bringeth a snare: but whoso putteth his trust in the LORD shall be safe. 26    Many seek the ruler’s favour; but every man’s judgment cometh from the LORD. 27    An unjust man is an abomination to the just: and he that is upright in the way is abomination to the wicked. Or the “Fear of man will prove to be our  snare…” (Proverbs 29:25). Is there something that God wants you to do, but you haven’t done it because you’re afraid of what people will think?

.

Generally non-believers, non Christians  are clearly still  totally ignorant the work of the Holy Spirit.
.
(1 Corinthians 3:1-3).  “A natural man does not accept the things of the Spirit of God; for they are foolishness to him, and he cannot understand them, because they are spiritually appraised” (1 Corinthians 2:14). But “He who is spiritual appraises all things…We have the mind of Christ”  (1 Corinthians 2:15).

(Luke 12:8 KJV) Also I say unto you, Whosoever shall confess me before men, him shall the Son of man also confess before the angels of God:

(Luke 12:9 KJV) But he that denieth me before men shall be denied before the angels of God.

(Luke 12:10 KJV) And whosoever shall speak a word against the Son of man, it shall be forgiven him: but unto him that blasphemeth against the Holy Ghost it shall not be forgiven.

(John 14:21 KJV) He that hath my commandments, and keepeth them, he it is that loveth me: and he that loveth me shall be loved of my Father, and I will love him, and will manifest myself to him. (John 14:23 KJV) Jesus answered and said unto him, If a man love me, he will keep my words: and my Father will love him, and we will come unto him, and make our abode with him.

BEING RELGIOUS AND/OR KNOWING THE BIBLE IS NOT THE SAME AS KNOWING PERSONALY GOD, JESUS CHRIST, THE HOLY SPIRIT.. GOD, JESUS CHRIST, THE HOLY SPIRIT, all do love you and they had created you to know them personally-here was a basic, truthful fact – you must know, remember and share with others too. God the father, Jesus Christ, and the Holy Spirit are all alive, real, individuals who care about you personaly too and desire now to fellowship with you too if you do now meet their requirements, conditions as stated in the New Testament. Or are you falsely still relying in your own flesh in following Jesus Christ, God, the Holy Spirit? … Did you know that the Bible teaches us that human nature will always deny Jesus Christ. We all first must come personally to Jesus Christ in order to receive the baptism of Holy Spirit as well.. Now without the Holy Spirit of Jesus in ypour life, heart, you can only know, experience, darkness, demons and not God.

Our boldness comes from being with Jesus, the Holy Spirit and our knowledge, application of God’s word. We can’t change one thing about ourselves or others without the SPIRIT of GOD.

(Luke 4:1 KJV) And Jesus being full of the Holy Ghost returned from Jordan, and was led by the Spirit into the wilderness,

(Rom 8:14 KJV) For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God.

FIRSTLY ABOUT YOUR SALVATION.. HAVE YOU NOW ACCPETED JESUS CHRIST AS BOTH YOUR SAVIOR FROM YOUR SINS AND AS THE SOLE LORD OF YOUR LIFE.

and nothing, absolutely nothing but Jesus lasts and fully satisfies you.

 

Also here is a basic, truthful fact you must know, remember and share with others too. God the father, Jesus Christ, and the Holy Spirit are all alive, real, individual persons, equal part of the Trinity and they manifest themselves to us in different ways even though they are all equally part of God. This difference is also reflected in their gifts they offer personally to us and others. Get to know them all better. Num 10:35 KJV) Rise up, LORD, and let thine enemies be scattered; and let them that hate thee flee before thee.

Our main site’s theme here now is how to be personally Baptized with the Holy’ Spirit’s power, and to continue in it, so that it will next also bring to you continually a personal peace, revival in your own life.. Firstly you do have to become fully, All 100 percent committed to Christ now… for no man can serve two masters. More on how to get the holy spirit empowerment? see http://www.cbn.com/spirituallife/cbnteachingsheets/Gifts_of_the_Spirit.aspx

GOD is still looking for the caring, loving spirit filled people who have made the LORD JESUS CHRIST only and not others as their Hope and Confidence. GOD now wants to get down to the heart of things and make you as Free as you can be, so you can just fully enjoy being His Child. Lift up your head for the Kingdom of God will come upon you too, if you seek Him, and you will next see more of God’s SPIRIT on display than ever before. You will also personally Rejoice in what God’s promised for His Church, and you will with joy also now know that you’re on your way up being lifted up in Him too. When you are Baptized in the Holy Spirit Waves of His Restoring Presence will come into your life and make a difference but only if you allow it, and if seek do him with all of your heart. You now as a result will praise him more and more for the great things he will do through you as well. You’re going to become even more confident in the LORD and be able to share His Gospel, truths more effectively. The way to really Touch Heaven here on earth is to first now let Heaven reach down and Touch you by Jesus Christ and his Holy Spirit.. Jesus is still the personal Baptizer of the Holy Ghost and fire.

Let’s now let GOD infuse us more with His Manifest Glory, with His Holy Spirit and let us let Him Disciple us in all His ways. GOD still does have something bigger for each one of us he has planned for us more than we have even imagined. He by his Holy Spirit is fueling and leading us the whole way. GOD is decking us out with His Garments, garments of holiness, power, and praise included, and He is also calling us to personally move into His own places of Authority here on earth. This Hand of GOD is lifting us up and giving us the Passion that also His SON had, has. This Anointed Holy Spirit Hand of GOD is also bringing his Favor and releasing us to His Kingdom best. GOD now still wants to be every bit a living part of our lives as we daily do His. GOD can show us more as to what it takes to know Him on a one on one basis, to know him more, and to make His Name Great in the earth. With God’s supplied Power and Passion in the Holy Spirit we can turn around many things for His glory, and we will be right in the center where GOD wants us all the time to be, and not only to receive but to pour out as well. Yes it is really true that GOD wants to fill your cup with his Holy Spirit and to make you also an important somebody in His Kingdom filled with praise, love, humbleness and power too.

Any genuine revival of the Holy Spirit is a personal one firstly.. it is to affects us personally first. Then we can share it with those around us and those abroad. The HOLY GHOST brings our personal Restoration to God, He can bring it to the whole Church as well and get It up into God’s Will. He will also take those persons going through trials and prepare them for a personal, individual Ministry, for He Enables those who have now been Called, and he can get us all working in His Order, and Fills us with Joy and Settle us individually and solidly in JESUS. The Holy Spirit Anointing Calls us into our own ministry, service and he Challenges us to give up our life as we know it, it as more than going from childhood into adulthood, for it Announces God’s Favor, Increases our Awareness of the Spirit’s Work, Bridges gaps between God and man and ir makes many things right, and as well he gives us More of JESUS. We thus will be are Refreshed in His Presence, we will feel more Strongly about the Things of GOD, God’s Will will be made clearer to us, and our useless, old worries are Removed

In Christ by His Holy Spirit we have a New enabled Mission, Ministry, Service for we not only take on a New Nature, but we are being continually Led, Fed by Him as well

The Outpouring of the HOLY SPIRIT while it often is still unpredictable, it is always in His time, and it is the beginning and also summation of our Faith in the Hand of the LORD to take his own direct actions here on earth, it is God’s Person on Display, it also is something New everyday, and it can make everybody who receives it Happy, in the World To Come in the here and now too… with even abundant Joy.

Seek Him, find him, take hold of Him, and above all keep him at all costs.. and all available now to us freely through Jesus Christ, to him be all the glory, the majesty always.

GOD wants to set you apart. He wants you to have His Passion for everything. GOD is on the move in the earth today and He needs, uses the people full of His HOLY SPIRIT. So do Take a deep breath and breathe in the Presence of the Almighty… by His outpouring of His Holy Spirit.. We have to develop a deeper thirst for HIM as well so we can personally see experience, more of this Glory. We also have to die to self, renounce self, our own lives of this to happen as well.

It is a realy sad fact, in spite of the fact they may use some of the same words other real Christians do now, that too many professing Christians who claim they love God, Jesus Christ, the Holy Spirit, in reality they are still not filled with the Holy Spirit even cause they have rejected the fullness of the Holy Spirit, and his gifts being applicable today, they now falsely have limited the Gospel as being Jesus the Savior only and they wrongfully do not teach the full Gospel of Jesus the Christ now as well…. and they falsely emphasize the usage of Greek and the teaching of men, such as Darby, Scofield, over the Holy Spirit teaching us directly.. and those amongst them who do this they all basically do not have the Holy Spirit, are actually deceived, are now none of His.. They realy are still unsaved thus.

“YOU CANNOT PRAISE HIM IN FALSE DOCTRINE ..YOU COMMIT FORNICATION WHEN YOU ARE IN FALSE DOCTRINE …..WHEN YOU DO NOT HAVE THE HOLY GHOST YOU CANNOT WORSHIP HIM…..HE SAID THIS IN ACTS BEFORE HE LEFT UP Mat 16:12 Then understood they how that he bade them not beware of the leaven of bread, but of the doctrine of the Pharisees and of the Sadducees. THESE ARE THE ONES THAT BRING THE DEMONIC DOCTRINE INTO THE CHURCH …SAYING YAHWAH KEEPING THE PASSOVER THE SABBATH” Richard Card

We all do still have to by Faith personally accept everything God has promised, had given us and by faith to fully walk in His Kingdom Authority, and we have to keep ourselves built up in the faith, in the power of the Holy Spirit, in the life of the Lord Jesus Christ, to keep on going after GOD.

We thus do clearly have to set apart time daily to just be with GOD, to hear his Spirit, his voice and to let Him pour himself into us even so we’ll be able to share his truths, his will to some of the others in the world. The Holy Spirit’s Fire also does molds us into Christ’s Image and keeps us New. The Holy spirit’s Fire also will Purges us, Empowers us, Motivates us, Disciplines us, Takes us to another Level, and Completes us

To be Baptized with the Holy Spirit first you must be a true Christian, a true follower of Jesus Christ

“Yet now hear, O Jacob my servant; and Israel, whom I have chosen: Thus saith the Lord that made thee, and formed thee from the womb, which will help thee; Fear not, O Jacob, my servant; and thou, Jesurun, (the upright one) whom I have chosen. For I will pour water upon him that is thirsty and floods upon the dry ground: I will pour my spirit upon thy seed, and my blessing upon thine offspring: And they shall spring up as among the grass, as willows by the water courses.” (Isa. 44:1-4)

The LORD has His people to tell about all the wonderful things He’s doing in the earth. it is also a truth, a fact that being, becoming a Christian by choice is a start on a long unknown earthly and heavenly journey of unexpected obstacles and changes, and a journey that is different than the one’s the non Christians do make.. the non Christians can seem to try to do what they want but us Christians do firstly have to get to know and follow God’s rules, and hopefully we can also find other good, trustworthy Christians that can help to make the journey more pleasant to walk with.

One thing more that is also true if you persist on doing your own thing, running your own life, you will not get to know God, nor have the access to His provisions for your life too. I do often meet even the persons who have seen Heaven and the things of Christ from a distance, afar, but next they will certainly never enter into Heaven, the real relationship with Christ they are not fully qualified for it by their own neglects, acts.

Cancer and Heart attacks, which are often also related to stress often, related to not eating proper foods, not taking proper exercise. not taking good care of ourselves personally are common killers for too many persons too. In fact when I meet a lot of non Christians I find they are often really stressed out, and they are facing often different quickly quite fluctuation, unexpected changes, stressful events. Life without Christ is really difficult to endure.

(Isa 30:15 KJV) For thus saith the Lord GOD, the Holy One of Israel; In returning and rest shall ye be saved; in quietness and in confidence shall be your strength: and ye would not.

One of the definite facts when I became a full time Christians walking with God I noticed a more simplified walk, me having God’s daily bread, amd next me having a more stable walk too, and not facing so many of the past different, fluctuating stresses and changes. My life next was a lot less stressful, more stable. For to me also this verse became real (Isa 33:6 KJV) And wisdom and knowledge shall be the stability of thy times, and strength of salvation: the fear of the LORD is his treasure.

I hope also for you that the good fellowship of Christ, his daily bread, and the fellowship of other true, humble Christians, plus their inputs will also make facing real life easier for you as well.

(Psa 37:9 KJV) For evildoers shall be cut off: but those that wait upon the LORD, they shall inherit the earth.

(Psa 37:10 KJV) For yet a little while, and the wicked shall not be: yea, thou shalt diligently consider his place, and it shall not be.

(Psa 37:11 KJV) But the meek shall inherit the earth; and shall delight themselves in the abundance of peace.

(Isa 66:2 KJV) For all those things hath mine hand made, and all those things have been, saith the LORD: but to this man will I look, even to him that is poor and of a contrite spirit, and trembleth at my word.

(Eccl 3:11 KJV) He hath made every thing beautiful in his time: also he hath set the world in their heart, so that no man can find out the work that God maketh from the beginning to the end.

(Jer 9:6 KJV) Thine habitation is in the midst of deceit; through deceit they refuse to know me, saith the LORD.

It should come as no surprise to most of us as to how little most persons, the professing Christians now included do know very little about God, Jesus, the Holy spirit, and they mostly do not have any real personal relationships with them and the answer is found in the above verses.. even that they have personally refused to do so and they have been even deceived that it is not possible to do so too. Do you have a deeper life with God, Jesus and the Holy spirit personally, or do you believe it is possible to do so as well? http://anyonecare.wordpress.com/2008/05/26/our-god-speaks-too/ and http://anyonecare.wordpress.com/2011/10/27/god-still-speaks-outside-of-the-bible-as-well/

(1 John 1:1 KJV) That which was from the beginning, which we have heard, which we have seen with our eyes, which we have looked upon, and our hands have handled, of the Word of life; 2 (For the life was manifested, and we have seen it, and bear witness, and show unto you that eternal life, which was with the Father, and was manifested unto us;) 3 That which we have seen and heard declare we unto you, that ye also may have fellowship with us: and truly our fellowship is with the Father, and with his Son Jesus Christ. 4 And these things write we unto you, that your joy may be full.

(John 7:28 KJV) Then cried Jesus in the temple as he taught, saying, Ye both know me, and ye know whence I am: and I am not come of myself, but he that sent me is true, whom ye know not.

(Jer 24:7 KJV) And I will give them an heart to know me, that I am the LORD: and they shall be my people, and I will be their God: for they shall return unto me with their whole heart.

(Jer 31:34 KJV) And they shall teach no more every man his neighbour, and every man his brother, saying, Know the LORD: for they shall all know me, from the least of them unto the greatest of them, saith the LORD: for I will forgive their iniquity, and I will remember their sin no more.

(1 John 3:5 KJV) And ye know that he was manifested to take away our sins; and in him is no sin.

(1 John 3:8 KJV) He that committeth sin is of the devil; for the devil sinneth from the beginning. For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that he might destroy the works of the devil.

(1 John 4:9 KJV) In this was manifested the love of God toward us, because that God sent his only begotten Son into the world, that we might live through him.

(1 Tim 3:16 KJV) And without controversy great is the mystery of godliness: God was manifest in the flesh, justified in the Spirit, seen of angels, preached unto the Gentiles, believed on in the world, received up into glory.

(John 2:11 KJV) This beginning of miracles did Jesus in Cana of Galilee, and manifested forth his glory; and his disciples believed on him.

(John 17:6 KJV) I have manifested thy name unto the men which thou gavest me out of the world: thine they were, and thou gavest them me; and they have kept thy word.

(John 16:7 KJV) Nevertheless I tell you the truth; It is expedient for you that I go away: for if I go not away, the Comforter will not come unto you; but if I depart, I will send him unto you. 8 And when he is come, he will reprove the world of sin, and of righteousness, and of judgment: 9 Of sin, because they believe not on me; 10 Of righteousness, because I go to my Father, and ye see me no more; 11 Of judgment, because the prince of this world is judged. 12 I have yet many things to say unto you, but ye cannot bear them now. 13 Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will show you things to come. 14 He shall glorify me: for he shall receive of mine, and shall show it unto you. 15 All things that the Father hath are mine: therefore said I, that he shall take of mine, and shall show it unto you.

My serious interest on the subject of the Holy Spirit started at an early age, around the time I was 25, even cause I had asked my evangelical Baptist Church pastor if there was such thing today as empowering from God to live the Christian life.. when he replied no, and because sadly I knew he basically was not to be trusted I decided that I should look more seriously into the topic, so I stared to read many Books, and the Bible on the subject of the Holy Sprit next. When I next read the testimonies of others, it was clearly evident, undeniable that some Christians had experienced dramatic changes in heir personal life as a result of knowing Christ, and being filled with the holy spirit, even more dramatically than others too. Why the difference. And as I continued my study it became very evident that not everyone who professed to be a Christian, pastors, elders included were even firstly Christians. Imagine that church pastors were falsely still even reading clearly secular books to know more about God. It also became clear that many professing Christians were not serving God, but doing their own thing, serving themselves, or were trying to please others, mere men and women, or their denominations too. We have more perversion than power, more compromise than conviction and more playboys in the pulpit than prophets. Because of their own sinful nature, human limitations next falsely Men still try to limit God today as to what he God can and cannot do today with His Holy Spirit now as well by next their own false obstructions, confusions, distortions, over simplifications, lies too. Me too there was a time in my life when I thought I was now saved and I had it all, but that was certainly not true. But man still cannot prevail against God, the light, the truth ever. There is power available to you also to personally to overcome: disease, despair, defeat, sickness, sin and Satan! You can now have power over every attack of the devil! And I ask right now, Come, Lord Jesus, and fill these people full of the Holy Spirit.

Isaiah 10:27: And it shall come to
pass in that day, that his burden shall be taken away from off thy shoulder, and his yoke from off thy neck, and the yoke shall be destroyed because of the anointing.

How God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Ghost and with power: who went about doing good, and healing all that were oppressed of the devil; .Acts 10:28 ..

Acts 1:8 says, “But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon …

(Luke 2:26 KJV) And it was revealed unto him by the Holy Ghost, that he should not see death, before he had seen the Lord’s Christ.

(2 Pet 1:21 KJV) For the prophecy came not in old time by the will of man: but holy men of God spake as they were moved by the Holy Ghost.

(2 Pet 3:2 KJV) That ye may be mindful of the words which were spoken before by the holy prophets, and of the commandment of us the apostles of the Lord and Saviour:

(2 Tim 1:14 KJV) That good thing which was committed unto thee keep by the Holy Ghost which dwelleth in us.

(Isa 4:4 KJV) When the Lord shall have washed away the filth of the daughters of Zion, and shall have purged the blood of Jerusalem from the midst thereof by the spirit of judgment, and by the spirit of burning.

(Micah 3:8 KJV) But truly I am full of power by the spirit of the LORD, and of judgment, and of might, to declare unto Jacob his transgression, and to Israel his sin.

(Mat 12:28 KJV) But if I cast out devils by the Spirit of God, then the kingdom of God is come unto you.

(Luke 4:1 KJV) And Jesus being full of the Holy Ghost returned from Jordan, and was led by the Spirit into the wilderness,

(Rom 8:14 KJV) For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God.

(1 Cor 6:11 KJV) And such were some of you: but ye are washed, but ye are sanctified, but ye are justified in the name of the Lord Jesus, and by the Spirit of our God.

(1 Cor 12:8 KJV) For to one is given by the Spirit the word of wisdom; to another the word of knowledge by the same Spirit;

(2 Cor 3:18 KJV) But we all, with open face beholding as in a glass the glory of the Lord, are changed into the same image from glory to glory, even as by the Spirit of the Lord.

(1 Pet 3:18 KJV) For Christ also hath once suffered for sins, the just for the unjust, that he might bring us to God, being put to death in the flesh, but quickened by the Spirit:

(1 Matt 3:24 KJV) And he that keepeth his commandments dwelleth in him, and he in him. And hereby we know that he abideth in us, by the Spirit which he hath given us.

(1 John 3:21 KJV) I indeed baptize you with water unto repentance: but he that cometh after me is mightier than I, whose shoes I am not worthy to bear: he shall baptize you with the Holy Ghost, and with fire: 2 Whose fan is in his hand, and he will thoroughly purge his floor, and gather his wheat into the garner; but he will burn up the chaff with unquenchable fire.

(Rev 3:15 KJV) I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot: I would thou wert cold or hot. 16 So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth.

In fact it became evident not just in the Catholic, Orthodox Churches but even in Christian Plymouth Brethren, Baptist, Alliance and Pentecostal churches now too that in some professing persons, pastors, elders, deacons too, there still was no difference in behavior between the professing Christian person and the typical unbeliever, unchristian persons. Many so called Christians it became clear also to me they did not have a definite experiences where they had made Jesus Christ the sole Lord of their life, as next even a Christian Missionary Alliance church pastor had admitted to me. Now if many pastors were not preaching, living the empowered Christian Life how could the rest of the flock be aware of it as well? So I next talked to many many more pastors, and discovered many of them did not use or know the Bible in evangelical churches, but firstly they did not have a definite experience where they knew that God had even called them into the ministry. They became pastors by their own choice and were rather too often mere “hirelings”, in the Job merely as as any other person is in a secular career. It next also amazed me how many writers, preachers claimed to be experts on the Baptism of the Holy spirit, the anointing, when they had even admitted that they had never experienced it themselves.. ridiculous, and so how can you be an expert on something you have never experienced too? Many people it seems still can be easily deceived by the devil that they are following and doing God’s will when they clearly now are not. There is much too much filthy manna, begging and stealing money now associated with Christians and why? They Cleary are no living the real anointed life but doing their on selfish thing still too. Many professing Christians , pastors recognize their lack of holy sprit in their life, but instead of honestly confronting the reason why they next lie and say that the miracles ended when the last disciple died. When the Bible was finished being written. It was a temporary empowering. When Jesus was on the Cross He cried out, “It is finished!”

(Heb 13:8 KJV) Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and to day, and for ever. is alive today.. and he can be alive today in you and me too. And John 4:4 states, “Greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world.”

Well I got good news for you but power of the cross, the anointing, it was not over rather the posited it was just the beginning Jesus vetoed sin and the crucifixion with His resurrection by the Holy sprit, and then Jesus next gave a tag team hand off to the Holy Ghost to all others. The same anointing of Holy Ghost power that gave Jesus the power to overcome Satan’s power, temptation!! The Holy Ghost power and anointing can be yours, today!! This is the source of power to overcome Satan everyday of your life if you continue to follow after God, to obey and do his will daily. If you rebel from God do not expect this anointing to be of help to you. You need to willfully continue to walk humbly in the light, in Jesus himself still too. And if you let God do it, he will empower, equip you to do his will, equip you uniquely for service to him like he has done to many others. When Jesus was being tried in Pilate’s court, Peter denied knowing Jesus three times. He didn’t have enough courage to even say that he knew Jesus. let alone be His witness, but after the Holy Ghost fell on the 120 at Pentecost. What a difference!! The first sermon Peter preached, 3000 were converted. You can have this kind of power now in your life. Yes it’s free for the asking humbly to all who already do believe and are baptized in Jesus as both their Savior and Lord. You are free to live the empowered life if you daily choose to do so, or you can next even daily choose to walk merely in your own sinful thing, in the flesh.

Perhaps you still do feel you are not worthy to receive this power. Possibly some have told you that this power is not for today. Or you feel overcome by the pressures of life and don’t know how to ask for the power of the Holy Ghost to take over your life. Right now that all you need to do is simply to humbly ask God even again. The Bible says, “Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning” (James 1:17). It is His desire that you receive everything He has for you! Tthe Bible declares it to be so! ” And it shall come to pass afterward, that I will pour out my spirit upon all flesh; and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, your old men shall dream dreams, your young men shall see visions: And also upon the servants and upon the hand-maids in those days will I pour out my spirit” (Joel 2:28-29). It’s still for as many who call upon the name of the Lord!

(Mat 7:7 KJV) Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you:8 For every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened.

(Luke 11:10 KJV) For every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened.11 If a son shall ask bread of any of you that is a father, will he give him a stone? or if he ask a fish, will he for a fish give him a serpent?12 Or if he shall ask an egg, will he offer him a scorpion?13 If ye then, being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your children: how much more shall your heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to them that ask him?

(Gal 5:22 KJV) But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, 23 Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law.

(Gal 5:25 KJV) If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit.

Pass it on. The Lord wants to infuse you with an anointing, by the Holy Spirit, which will propel you through every line of Satan’s defense. This is how you can overcome every situation as you receive “power from on high!” Our Lord Jesus Christ Himself was full of this power as He withstood the onslaught of the devil while fasting in the wilderness. The Bible records that John the Baptist baptized Jesus, the Lord of Glory, in the river Jordan prior to Him praying and fasting 40 days and 40 nights. At the end of this fast Satan came to Him and tempted Him in His spirit, soul and body to sin against God. But Jesus resisted Satan’s offense with the statement, “It is written!” After this, Luke 4: 14 states, And Jesus returned in the power of the Spirit into Galilee: and there went out a fame of him through all the region round about. If Jesus, walking as a man, needed the power of the Holy Spirit to stand against the assault of the devil, I ask you, “How much more do we need the power of the Holy Spirit?” There’s a Holy Spirit revival coming, and it’s can also be coming even through your words, through your hands and through your life!

Would you like to have God’s Holy Ghost Power in your life? If so please pray this prayer humbly. “Dear Heavenly Father. As per your promises in your word, the Bible do next baptize me with your Holy sprit, power. I accept the promise of Acts 2: 38 & 39 and the anointing power of the Holy Ghost. I ask to have the power that Apostles had received even in my life. I also do want the power to overcome Satan everyday, in all areas of life! Jesus you are my lord so by your Holy Spirit, please fill me now and take full control of my life, my body and even my tongue. Let my tongue now also give praises to God the Father and His Holy Son, Jesus in a Heavenly language. I put myself, my all under your full control. Amen!”

John 10:37-38 ” If I do not the works of my Father, believe me not. 38 But if I do, though ye believe not me, believe the works: that ye may know, and believe, that the Father is in me, and I in him. “

(2 John 1:5 KJV) And now I beseech thee, lady, not as though I wrote a new commandment unto thee, but that which we had from the beginning, that we love one another.

(Luke 4:18 KJV) The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; he hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised, 19 To preach the acceptable year of the Lord.

(Mark 3:23 KJV) And he called them unto him, and said unto them in parables, How can Satan cast out Satan? 24 And if a kingdom be divided against itself, that kingdom cannot stand. 25 And if a house be divided against itself, that house cannot stand. 26 And if Satan rise up against himself, and be divided, he cannot stand, but hath an end.

(Mark 3:27 KJV) No man can enter into a strong man’s house, and spoil his goods, except he will first bind the strong man; and then he will spoil his house.

(Mark 3:28 KJV) Verily I say unto you, All sins shall be forgiven unto the sons of men, and blasphemies wherewith soever they shall blaspheme: 29 But he that shall blaspheme against the Holy Ghost hath never forgiveness, but is in danger of eternal damnation:

For certainty also because of the demonic opposition the devil will try to discourage you from finding out reading about the Holy spirit, Charismatics, Pentecostals and the Bible. I know I have experienced this myself the last 40 years. So my sites will reflect, show you what I have learned, found out on these subjects for a start.

My alternative sites links for reading/or discussions as well..

I got good news for you

 

wordletrinity

 I got good news for you, you are not going to heaven very soon as God wants you to live with and for him on earth, to glorify him, and he empowers you to do so now too..
God’s certain Will now  Is you now having the filling, Baptism  of the Holy Spirit for you have already  been involved with the Holy Spirit since you first heard the good news that Jesus took your place and bore the penalty for your sins. It was the Holy Spirit, even through the Word, Who made the truth that Jesus was raised from the dead a reality in your heart.
Matthew 7:7 Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you: For every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened.9 Or what man is there of you, whom if his son ask bread, will he give him a stone?10 Or if he ask a fish, will he give him a serpent?11 If ye then, being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your children, how much more shall your Father which is in heaven give good things to them that ask him?
Luke 11:13 If ye then, being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your children: how much more shall your heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to them that ask him?

The Holy Spirit is NOT Your Bible nor is he your preacher.. The Holy Spirit is the Spirit of the Living God.  “When the Spirit of truth comes, he will guide you into all the truth” That is why many or most people, even preachers they cannot endure, comprehend even the  the clear teachings of Scripture because they do not  have not the indwelling, the empowering strength of the Holy Spirit. The works of the Holy Spirit Spirit living in us  are taught, recorded in  the New testament books of Acts through Revelations. The Holy  Spirit illuminates  Jesus’ Word and is the main cause  of  His working the Word of God  into and through our life.

It was the miraculous work of the Holy Spirit that made you a new creature. When you make Jesus Christ the  Lord over your life, the Holy Spirit will come upon you and overshadow you, just as He did Jesus mother Mary when there was conceived in her a “holy thing.” and to many others as well..  The ministry of the Holy Spirit is not only to impart the nature of God to the spirit of man, but also to live in the new creature and to reveal to him the exact knowledge of God. The Spirit within enables the new creature to walk in newness of life. One writer said, “The Spirit that gives us life must also sustain that life.”

Ezekiel says, “A new heart also will I give you, and a new spirit will I put within you: and I will take away the stony heart out of your flesh, and I will give you an heart of flesh. And I will put my spirit within you, and cause you to walk in my statutes, and ye shall keep my judgments, and do them” (Ezekiel 36:26-27).

Jesus taught them about these works in John 14. He talked to them about the Holy Spirit and said, “Believest thou not that I am in the Father, and the Father in me? the words that I speak unto you I speak not of myself: but the Father that dwelleth in me, he doeth the works. Verily, verily, I say unto you, he that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father” (John 14:10, 12).

The same power that was upon Jesus came upon the Church on the Day of Pentecost. The Holy Spirit is still assigned to the Church to help us fulfill our commission. Didn’t Jesus say He would abide with us forever!

Jesus stated that it was not He but the Father in Him Who did these works. When He said, “But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you…” (Acts 1:8), they knew what He meant!

The Greek word dunamis, translated power, means ability and might. When you receive the Baptism in the Holy Spirit, you receive the ability of God to do His work in the earth. The Spirit within is for fruit bearing – for your own personal life (Galatians 5:22-23). Jesus talked about this in John 4:14. He called it: “…a well of water springing up into everlasting life.” But the Spirit upon is for service. Jesus talked about this in John 7:38-39. He described it as rivers of living water. The well is for your own life and the rivers flowing out of you are for others.

The traditions and doctrines of men have robbed many believers of this power to be a witness with evidence that Jesus has been raised from the dead. The world is not only supposed to hear words but see proof that Jesus is alive today. All New Christians  should be taught to also next not accept Jesus Christ as lord, but also to receive the Baptism in the Holy Spirit – the endowment of power to live a holy life, and even to reveal Jesus to lost humanity

 

The Holy Spirit, like the Son, will not speak what proceeds from Himself, of His own initiative, as distinct from what proceeds from the Father. What He does is energize and illuminate Jesus and His  Word in order to bring it more fully into our consciousness, heart, and life. Also  He will empower the believer to live His life and word  out. The Holy Spirit is the  key to knowing God personally, of having a real relationship with Him. It is through the Spirit that we are able to look at God and not only see Him and know what He is like (Ezek. 39:29 29 Neither will I hide my face any more from them: for I have poured out my spirit upon the house of Israel, saith the Lord GOD.), and can  have a full personal relationship with the Trinity.
When the Spirit declares the things that are to come, He does not enumerate a long list of specific, day to day occurrences, but predicts the underlying principles. These future concerns may be what is imminent but basically it deal with the return of Christ (1 Cor. 2:10f).
John 16:12 I have yet many things to say unto you, but ye cannot bear them now.13 Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will shew you things to come.14 He shall glorify me: for he shall receive of mine, and shall shew it unto you.15 All things that the Father hath are mine: therefore said I, that he shall take of mine, and shall shew it unto you.
The Spirit, like the Son, will not speak what proceeds from Himself, of His own initiative, as distinct from what proceeds from the Father. What He does is energize and illuminate Jesus’ Word in order to bring it more fully into our consciousness, heart, and life. Then He will empower the believer to live it out. The key to knowing God personally, of having a real relationship with Him, is the ministry of the Spirit. It is through the Spirit that we are able to look at God and not only see Him and know what He is like (Ezek. 39:29), but have a personal relationship with Him. The Holy Spirit will always still glorify Christ

Without the ministry of the Holy Spirit in our own life, without being filled with the Spirit, we can not understand the things of Christ, nor can we have the things of Christ. All that the Spirit shows us, applies to us for our instruction and comfort, all that He gives us for strengthening and empowerment, and all that He secures and seals to us did all belong to Christ and was given by Him. Christ purchased it all and paid dearly for it and has reason to call it His own. The Spirit came not to erect a new earthly kingdom, but to advance and establish the eternal Kingdom of Jesus Christ . All the Spirit does will be in harmony with what Christ did. He will maintain the same interests and pursue the same design. The Spirit will never do anything in contrast or contradictory to the written or Living Word of God.

12 I have yet many things to say unto you, but ye cannot bear them now.13 Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will shew you things to come.14 He shall glorify me: for he shall receive of mine, and shall shew it unto you.15 All things that the Father hath are mine: therefore said I, that he shall take of mine, and shall shew it unto you. John 16:12-15

Now the Spirit himself is also God’s great gift to all believers who gives gifts now to them as well. “I will pour out my Spirit upon all people. Your sons and daughters will prophesy. Your old men will dream dreams. Your young men will see visions. “In those days, I will pour out my Spirit even on servants, men and women alike.” Joel 2:28

“I baptize with water those who turn from their sins and turn to God. But someone is coming soon who is far greater than I am — so much greater that I am not even worthy to be his slave. He will baptize you with the Holy Spirit and with fire. Matthew 3:11

The word for Spirit is neuter in Greek but the pronoun “He” which refers to this Spirit is masculine. From this and many other Scriptures it is clear that the Spirit is revealed as having the personality and characteristics of a person. The Spirit is a He and not an it. He experiences joy and sadness, He has intellect and reasoning like people do. He is the Spirit of Faith whose ministry is guiding into truth and He does it in a very personal way. He is not simply a force or a power He is personal with a separate consciousness from the other trinity members of the Godhead. He the Holy Spirit exerts His influence upon our Bor  from above,  regenerated consciousness, our Soul and spirit now too..  . The Spirit does not drive or compel nor does He force us or carry us. The is a loving hand placed upon us to lead us. We may refuse His leadership (and most people mainly do) and if we would follow Him we must humble  ourselves. But if we will allow him to do so ourselves the Spirit will guarantee that we does not miss God’s  way and He will secure us in tall ways from sin. John 16:8 And when he is come, he will reprove the world of sin, and of righteousness, and of judgment:

Romans 12:2 And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God.

It is really absurd that many people, preachers teach about the Holy Spirit and yet they personal seem to know nothing of hi, still do not know him, have never even personal experienced him, His filling, his baptism of the Holy Spirit. Thus they are thus pretenders, imposters, false teachers. The Holy Spirit is certainly not your Bible or your Bible knowledge . . If The Holy Spirit does not leads us today only through the word of God, the Bible, as he still speaks, he has voice that you can learn to hear clearly too. .The leading of the Holy Spirit is also still not limited by what we Know of the scriptures. The holy Spirit will teach you from the Bible and show you what the passage really mans too.   Most Christians  treat the Bible as if it’s the Holy Spirit that  will lead us into all truth, but still we do we test everything against the Word of God the Bible. 2 Timothy 3:16 All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness, 17 that the man of God may be complete, thoroughly equipped for every good work. The things of God are not comprehendible unless  the Holy Spirit reveals them to us  in our lives.

The Divine Spirit is available  to each of us when we receive Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior. The renewing of your mind does not occur by reading the Bible. It occurs by the holy Spirit renewing your mind by his teaching, input. Instantaneously He reveals both in the truths that are plain and in those that are difficult. He will guide us into the whole body of redemptive revelation. The ministry of the Spirit is to enrich us with the treasures of God’s truth. He enlightens us with God’s truth and enriches us with God’s treasures. There is no limit to how much of the Holy Spirit’s leading help we can have. He stands ready to lead us in all truth as we are ready.

There exists also always between the persons of the Trinity an eternal,    relationship of love and fellowship,  hormonally respect, honor .

Jesus taught us that the SPIRIT would lead us into all truth. Many  Christians will say; ” how can the Spirit lead you into all truth unless you are reading the the Bible  and they literally  using solely their own their OWN understanding to understand Bible.  And many even y think that the Holy Spirit is their own understanding.  That’s not the way the Spirit of the Living God works. This is what Jesus said in John Chapter 14 verse 26; “But the Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in My name, He will teach you ALL things, and bring to your remembrance ALL things that I said to you.” The Same Spirit that worked in Jesus is the SAME Holy Spirit that will work in the children of God. The Same Holy Spirit that spoke through Jesus will speak to and through you if truly you are a true Christian.  The Holy Spirit is the Spirit of the Living God  does not just teach you things you already know. And they say that; “The Holy Spirit will ONLY speak the things that I already know.” WHAT kind of teacher will only teach you things that you already know? Is that not a BAD teacher? Would you not leave a class if you knew everything in that class already? The Holy Spirit is the Spirit of God and He will teach really even you NEW things that you have not seen in the Bible an d elsewhere. The Holy Spirit is not just going to bring to your memory things that you already know.  He will give you spiritual gift, gift o  discernment, and  tell you of things to come, like Jesus promised. The Holy Spirit will lead you into ALL truth like Jesus promised. All truth.. God is not dead. The Spirit of the Living God is ALIVE fully now even by his Holy Spirit. The holy Spirit  He is alive in those who seek Him, know him. Are you TRULY a child of God led by the Holy Spirit? Or are you  still only a dead Christian? Why?  .

Matthew 7:21 “Not everyone who says to Me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ shall enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father in heaven. If you reject the Holy Spirit filling, Baptism,  control of your life you are still headed towards hell.

Life itself now is  too much to bear unless we have the indwelling power of the Holy Spirit in our lives.   Luke 4:6 14 And Jesus returned in the power of the Spirit into Galilee: and there went out a fame of him through all the region round about.  Luke 10:19 Behold, I give unto you power to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy: and nothing shall by any means hurt you.  Mark 3:15 And to have power to heal sicknesses, and to cast out devils:  Luke 24: 49 And, behold, I send the promise of my Father upon you: but tarry ye in the city of Jerusalem, until ye be endued with power from on high. John 1:12 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:

Acts 1:7 And he said unto them, It is not for you to know the times or the seasons, which the Father hath put in his own power. 8 But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth.  Acts 3:12 And when Peter saw it, he answered unto the people, Ye men of Israel, why marvel ye at this? or why look ye so earnestly on us, as though by our own power or holiness we had made this man to walk?  Acts 4:7 And when they had set them in the midst, they asked, By what power, or by what name, have ye done this? 33 And with great power gave the apostles witness of the resurrection of the Lord Jesus: and great grace was upon them all.  Acts 6:8 And Stephen, full of faith and power, did great wonders and miracles among the people. Acts 8:10 To whom they all gave heed, from the least to the greatest, saying, This man is the great power of God.  Acts 10:38 How God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Ghost and with power: who went about doing good, and healing all that were oppressed of the devil; for God was with him.
The Holy Spirit anointing, baptism of the spirit, his gifts are often still administered by the laying on of the apostle’s hands. Acts 8:8 And when Simon saw that through the laying on of the apostles’ hands the Holy Spirit was given, he offered them money, Acts 8:9 Saying, Give me also this power, that on whomsoever I lay hands, he may receive the Holy Ghost. Philip in Samaria preached the things concerning the kingdom of God and the Name of Jesus. Verse 12 says they believed, and both men and women were baptized. These people were believers. Later, Peter and John came to pray for them that they might receive the Holy Ghost. “(For as yet he was fallen upon none of them: only they were baptized in the name of the Lord Jesus.) Then laid they their hands on them, and they received the Holy Ghost” (Acts 8:16-17).
Now also because many people are not filled with the holy Spirit personally  they falsely question the truthfulness of the Bible, claiming it’s a human work filled with error. Jesus tells us otherwise, God’s word is reliable, since He Jesus also promises that the Holy Spirit would remind us of His words, and would guide us into all truth.
My prayer is that the you may full receive the Holy  Spirit of Truth and may he guide you into more and more truth so that you might glorify Jesus more and more in your daily lives,in your worship of, service to Jesus Christ.
For this cause I bow my knees unto the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, Of whom the whole family in heaven and earth is named, That he would grant you, according to the riches of his glory, to be strengthened with might by his Spirit in the inner man; That Christ may dwell in your hearts by faith; that ye, being rooted and grounded in love, May be able to comprehend with all saints what is the breadth, and length, and depth, and height; And to know the love of Christ, which passeth knowledge, that ye might be filled with all the fullness of God. Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us, Unto him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus throughout all ages, world without end. Amen (Ephesians 3:14-21).

“…be filled with the Spirit” (Ephesians 5:18).  Learn to Depend on the Holy Spirit… He Will Guide You Into All Truth

 

“But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him. But God hath revealed them unto us by his Spirit: for the Spirit searcheth all things, yea, the deep things of God” (I Corinthians 2:9-10).

Not forgiven?

 

 sin

GRACE DOES NOT COVER UNCONFESSED SINS AND GRACE DOES NOT JUSTIFY UNREPENTED OF SINS.. IF YOU CONTINUE TO SIN WILLFULLY YOU ARE GOING TO HELL.. Jesus does not cover or excuse our unrepented of sins. … there are still negative consequences for them Galatians 6:7 Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap.

(Job 20:5 KJV) That the triumphing of the wicked is short, and the joy of the hypocrite but for a moment?

(Job 21:16 KJV) Lo, their good is not in their hand: the counsel of the wicked is far from me.

(Job 21:30 KJV) That the wicked is reserved to the day of destruction? they shall be brought forth to the day of wrath.

(Isa 48:22 KJV) There is no peace, saith the LORD, unto the wicked.

(Isa 55:7 KJV) Let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts: and let him return unto the LORD, and he will have mercy upon him; and to our God, for he will abundantly pardon.

(Isa 57:20 KJV) But the wicked are like the troubled sea, when it cannot rest, whose waters cast up mire and dirt.

(Isa 57:21 KJV) There is no peace, saith my God, to the wicked.

(Jer 5:28 KJV) They are waxen fat, they shine: yea, they overpass the deeds of the wicked: they judge not the cause, the cause of the fatherless, yet they prosper; and the right of the needy do they not judge.

(Jer 6:29 KJV) The bellows are burned, the lead is consumed of the fire; the founder melteth in vain: for the wicked are not plucked away.

(Jer 23:19 KJV) Behold, a whirlwind of the LORD is gone forth in fury, even a grievous whirlwind: it shall fall grievously upon the head of the wicked.

(Ezek 3:18 KJV) When I say unto the wicked, Thou shalt surely die; and thou givest him not warning, nor speakest to warn the wicked from his wicked way, to save his life; the same wicked man shall die in his iniquity; but his blood will I require at thine hand.

(Ezek 3:19 KJV) Yet if thou warn the wicked, and he turn not from his wickedness, nor from his wicked way, he shall die in his iniquity; but thou hast delivered thy soul.

(Ezek 18:23 KJV) Have I any pleasure at all that the wicked should die? saith the Lord GOD: and not that he should return from his ways, and live?

(Ezek 18:24 KJV) But when the righteous turneth away from his righteousness, and committeth iniquity, and doeth according to all the abominations that the wicked man doeth, shall he live? All his righteousness that he hath done shall not be mentioned: in his trespass that he hath trespassed, and in his sin that he hath sinned, in them shall he die.

(Ezek 18:27 KJV) Again, when the wicked man turneth away from his wickedness that he hath committed, and doeth that which is lawful and right, he shall save his soul alive.

(Ezek 21:3 KJV) And say to the land of Israel, Thus saith the LORD; Behold, I am against thee, and will draw forth my sword out of his sheath, and will cut off from thee the righteous and the wicked.

(Ezek 33:12 KJV) Therefore, thou son of man, say unto the children of thy people, The righteousness of the righteous shall not deliver him in the day of his transgression: as for the wickedness of the wicked, he shall not fall thereby in the day that he turneth from his wickedness; neither shall the righteous be able to live for his righteousness in the day that he sinneth.

(Dan 12:10 KJV) Many shall be purified, and made white, and tried; but the wicked shall do wickedly: and none of the wicked shall understand; but the wise shall understand.

(Nahum 1:3 KJV) The LORD is slow to anger, and great in power, and will not at all acquit the wicked: the LORD hath his way in the whirlwind and in the storm, and the clouds are the dust of his feet.

(Nahum 1:15 KJV) Behold upon the mountains the feet of him that bringeth good tidings, that publisheth peace! O Judah, keep thy solemn feasts, perform thy vows: for the wicked shall no more pass through thee; he is utterly cut off

(2 Pet 3:17 KJV) Ye therefore, beloved, seeing ye know these things before, beware lest ye also, being led away with the error of the wicked, fall from your own stedfastness.

(Gen 18:25 KJV) That be far from thee to do after this manner, to slay the righteous with the wicked: and that the righteous should be as the wicked, that be far from thee: Shall not the Judge of all the earth do right?

(1 Ki 8:32 KJV) Then hear thou in heaven, and do, and judge thy servants, condemning the wicked, to bring his way upon his head; and justifying the righteous, to give him according to his righteousness

(2 Chr 6:23 KJV) Then hear thou from heaven, and do, and judge thy servants, by requiting the wicked, by recompensing his way upon his own head; and by justifying the righteous, by giving him according to his righteousness

(Psa 1:5 KJV) Therefore the ungodly shall not stand in the judgment, nor sinners in the congregation of the righteous

(Psa 1:6 KJV) For the LORD knoweth the way of the righteous: but the way of the ungodly shall perish.

(Psa 5:12 KJV) For thou, LORD, wilt bless the righteous; with favour wilt thou compass him as with a shield

(Psa 7:11 KJV) God judgeth the righteous, and God is angry with the wicked every day.

(Psa 11:3 KJV) If the foundations be destroyed, what can the righteous do

(Psa 11:5 KJV) The LORD trieth the righteous: but the wicked and him that loveth violence his soul hateth.

“The righteousness of Christ is not a cloak to cover unconfessed and unforsaken sin; it is a principle of life that “One sin unrepented of is enough to close the gates of heaven against you.. we do stumble, but we do not live a lifestyle of continual, unrepentant sin. We all do even need to seriously know, differentiate between how God now deals with the wicked, those persons deliberately disobedient to him, he God does not go along with them for sure . God’s grace of forgiveness even does not extend to everyone.. God is merciful, kind to them, but not all professing Christians now are righteous for sure as well. Unconfessed sins break down our faith, destroy our confidence in Christ, and rob us of A REAL RELATIONSHIP WITH HIM AND HIS HOLY SPIRIT.. Not to mention, unrepented sin can cause a whole flurry of spiritual problems in our lives, NEGATIVE CONSEQUENCES WHERE WE BECOME MNTALLY UNSTABLE AS WE START TO LIE TO OURSELVES AND FALSELY EVEN BELIVE OPUR OWN LIES… … Covering up, justifying or hiding sin in our hearts is the opposite of true Christinaity .

Proverbs 28:13, “He that covereth his sins shall not prosper: but whoso confesseth and forsaketh them shall have mercy.”

Psalms 38:3-8, “…Neither is there any rest in my bones because of my sin. For mine iniquities are gone over mine head: as a heavy burden they are too heavy for me. My wounds stink and are corrupt because of my foolishness. I am troubled; I am bowed down greatly; I go mourning all the day long. For my loins are filled with a loathsome disease: and there is no soundness in my flesh. I am feeble and sore broken: I have roared by reason of the disquietness of my heart.”

Many Christians simply say, “Lord, forgive me of all my sins”, but continue to hide and cover up sins from their past. Do you honestly think that God honors this behavior? I don’t think so. Let’s take a look at what King David said about hiding sin in our hearts:

Psalms 32:3, “When I refused to confess my sin, I was weak and miserable, and I groaned all day long.” (NLT)

King David knew the importance of making sure his heart was clean before the Lord; he even asked the Lord to search his heart and see if there be anything hidden that needed to be brought out into the open:

Psalms 139:23-24, “Search me, O God, and know my heart: try me, and know my thoughts: And see if there be any wicked way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting.”

The repentance of sin is a very important, but often overlooked part of the gospel. Jesus made it clear that repentance and remission of sin is a foundation that we cannot overlook…

Luke 24:47, “And that repentance and remission of sins should be preached in his name among all nations, beginning at Jerusalem.”

Matthew 3:6, “And were baptized of him in Jordan, confessing their sins.”

What does it mean to repent?

Acts 3:19, “Repent ye therefore, and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out, when the times of refreshing shall come from the presence of the Lord.”

If we look up the word repent in the above verse in NT Greek, we find the word metanoeo, which translates to:

“To think differently or afterwards, that is, reconsider (morally to feel compunction)”

To repent means to turn from or change your mind about something. We need to change our mind about our sin and forsake it. We need to confess it as sin, and ask God’s forgiveness for our failure, and we will be forgiven. God’s Word promises that when we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us of whatever we’ve done that was wrong. In other words, regardless of what you’ve done, if you will give it to the Lord, confess and forsake it, you can receive mercy.

1 John 1:9, “If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.”

What happens when we repent?

God loves us more deeply than I think we’ll ever know, but He hates our sin with a passion. That’s why He sent Jesus to die for us, so that our sin could be removed. Sin forms a wall between man and God, even in a believer’s life. The Blood of Jesus is the only thing capable of removing such a wall. When we repent (confess and forsake our sin), it opens the flood-gates to receive our heavenly Father’s rich blessings and goodness in our lives!

Psalms 32:5-8, “Finally, I confessed all my sins to you and stopped trying to hide them. I said to myself, ‘I will confess my rebellion to the Lord.’ And you forgave me! All my guilt is gone. Therefore, let all the godly confess their rebellion to you while there is time, that they may not drown in the floodwaters of judgment. For you are my hiding place; you protect me from trouble.You surround me with songs of victory. The Lord says, “I will guide you along the best pathway for your life. I will advise you and watch over you.” (NLT)

Personal repentance makes a way for the Lord’s goodness to flow in our lives.

Matthew 3:1-3, “In those days came John the Baptist, preaching in the wilderness of Judea, And saying, Repent ye: for the kingdom of heaven is at hand. For this is he that was spoken of by the prophet Isaiah, saying, The voice of one crying in the wilderness, Prepare ye the way of the Lord, make his paths straight.”

Through repentance, we make a way for the Lord in our lives. We open ourselves up to His goodness, mercy and blessings! The only person who has something to lose is Satan!

Few stories in the Bible give us a clearer picture of God’s attitude towards us when we repent and turn back to Him, than the story of the Prodigal’s Son:

Luke 15:1-32, “Then drew near unto him all the publicans and sinners for to hear him. 2 And the Pharisees and scribes murmured, saying, This man receiveth sinners, and eateth with them. 3 And he spake this parable unto them, saying, 4 What man of you, having a hundred sheep, if he lose one of them, doth not leave the ninety and nine in the wilderness, and go after that which is lost, until he find it? 5 And when he hath found it, he layeth it on his shoulders, rejoicing. 6 And when he cometh home, he calleth together his friends and neighbors, saying unto them, Rejoice with me; for I have found my sheep which was lost. 7 I say unto you, that likewise joy shall be in heaven over one sinner that repenteth, more than over ninety and nine just persons, which need no repentance. 8 Either what woman having ten pieces of silver, if she lose one piece, doth not light a candle, and sweep the house, and seek diligently till she find it? 9 And when she hath found it, she calleth her friends and her neighbors together, saying, Rejoice with me; for I have found the piece which I had lost. 10 Likewise, I say unto you, there is joy in the presence of the angels of God over one sinner that repenteth. 11 And he said, A certain man had two sons: 12 And the younger of them said to his father, Father, give me the portion of goods that falleth to me. And he divided unto them his living. 13 And not many days after the younger son gathered all together, and took his journey into a far country, and there wasted his substance with riotous living. 14 And when he had spent all, there arose a mighty famine in that land; and he began to be in want. 15 And he went and joined himself to a citizen of that country; and he sent him into his fields to feed swine. 16 And he would fain have filled his belly with the husks that the swine did eat: and no man gave unto him. 17 And when he came to himself, he said, How many hired servants of my father’s have bread enough and to spare, and I perish with hunger! 18 I will arise and go to my father, and will say unto him, Father, I have sinned against heaven, and before thee, 19 And am no more worthy to be called thy son: make me as one of thy hired servants. 20 And he arose, and came to his father. But when he was yet a great way off, his father saw him, and had compassion, and ran, and fell on his neck, and kissed him. 21 And the son said unto him, Father, I have sinned against heaven, and in thy sight, and am no more worthy to be called thy son. 22 But the father said to his servants, Bring forth the best robe, and put it on him; and put a ring on his hand, and shoes on his feet: 23 And bring hither the fatted calf, and kill it; and let us eat, and be merry: 24 For this my son was dead, and is alive again; he was lost, and is found. And they began to be merry. 25 Now his elder son was in the field: and as he came and drew nigh to the house, he heard music and dancing. 26 And he called one of the servants, and asked what these things meant. 27 And he said unto him, Thy brother is come; and thy father hath killed the fatted calf, because he hath received him safe and sound. 28 And he was angry, and would not go in: therefore came his father out, and entreated him. 29 And he answering said to his father, Lo, these many years do I serve thee, neither transgressed I at any time thy commandment: and yet thou never gavest me a kid, that I might make merry with my friends: 30 But as soon as this thy son was come, which hath devoured thy living with harlots, thou hast killed for him the fatted calf. 31 And he said unto him, Son, thou art ever with me, and all that I have is thine. 32 It was meet that we should make merry, and be glad: for this thy brother was dead, and is alive again; and was lost, and is found.”

Romans 2:22 Thou that sayest a man should not commit adultery, dost thou commit adultery? thou that abhorrest idols, dost thou commit sacrilege?

1 Corinthians 8:1 Now as touching things offered unto idols, we know that we all have knowledge. Knowledge puffeth up, but charity edifieth.

4 As concerning therefore the eating of those things that are offered in sacrifice unto idols, we know that an idol is nothing in the world, and that there is none other God but one.

1 Corinthians 12:2 Ye know that ye were Gentiles, carried away unto these dumb idols, even as ye were led.

Billy Graham hires ghost writers to do his sermons.. The Reverend Mel White is a homosexual activist who lives with his male lover, Gary Nixon, in Dallas, Texas. “I am gay, I am proud, and God loves me without reservation,” White recently told David Calker, a Los Angeles Times reporter. White, who “pastors” a militantly gay church, is also a writer of many Christian books. But though he’s the author, his name doesn’t appear on the front covers. Instead, a Christian celebrity’s name appears on each of Mel White’s books. White is what the book industry fondly calls a “ghostwriter.” However, you’ll search in vain to find author Mel White’s name on either the cover or the title page of the books he wrote for Billy Graham. Nor is Mel White’s name openly connected with Jerry Falwell’s books. “It was important,” White now reveals, “that Jerry Falwell not be scandalized because his biographer was a queer.” Ghostwriter White also wrote Pat Robertson’s book, America’s Dates With Destiny but the gay reverend is not the only “ghost” whom the veteran host of TV’s The 700 Club has used for his chart topping books. Reportedly, Robertson’s recent #l Christian bestseller, The New World Order, was also ghostwritten by a CBN staffer. http://www.scionofzion.com/ghost_writers.htm

Another prime example is prophecy teacher Hal Lindsey. Very few people know that Lindsey’s mammoth bestseller, “The Late, Great Planet Earth,” was actually written by a woman, Carla Carlson. To his credit, Lindsey has publicly admitted this. The question remains, however: Who is Carla Carlson? Why was she involved in writing Lindsey’s book? Why is her name not highlighted on the cover, in bold letters equally as large as those of Hal Lindsey? And finally: Are all of Hal Lindsey’s books similarly written by unknown ghostwriters? Now what’s to be done about the lucrative, yet unethical and dishonest, practice of the ghostwriting of Christian books? I believe it is time for some truth telling. Thomas Nelson, Word, and all the other wealthy conglomerates who disguise themselves as “Christian” publishers should step up to the plate and give us a list of which books have been written by “ghosts” and which were really penned by the authors listed on their covers. That’s the least they should do to come clean. Better yet, these greedy publishing houses and their celebrity stable mates should quit trying to fatten their coffers and make bucks off gullible Christian readers. They should cease their publishing of ghostwritten books entirely.

My concern is that here’s how things like this continue to work: Franklin Graham (or Franklin and his sister Anne Graham Lotz) have an agenda (in all three of these cases, “traditional marriage”), they get a BGEA copywriter to draft the text, then a BGEA graphic designer does the layout (in the case of the ad), Franklin approves the copy and/or design, then Franklin drives out to Little Piney Cove (Billy’s cabin home outside of Asheville, N.C.) and holds the piece of paper in front of Billy and asks, “Daddy, can we publish this?” And Billy nods (or whatever he’s capable of doing at this point in his life), and Franklin goes back and publishes this stuff with his good father’s name all over it. Billy Graham is 95 years old, in the advanced stages of Parkinson’s disease (among a host of other age-related ailments). He’s been having fluid drained from his brain on a regular basis for over a decade. When I worked for BGEA and Mr. Graham was still leading evangelistic crusades around the country, it was well-known that all of his sermons, articles, letters and books were ghostwritten — and had been for quite some time.

Many are such an Ignorumus too.. Billy Graham and his son stole money.. undeniably..

IT’S TO BE NOTED FRANKLIN’S GRAHAM’S REAL TOTAL COMPENSATION AND PERSONAL USE OF HIS COMPANY PLANE IS STILL A REAL PROBLEM TODAY AND NED GRAHAM’S PROBLEMS HAVE PROBLEMS! ALSO BILLY GRAHAM’S REPORTED ANNUAL SALARY FROM THE BGEA FINANCIAL STATEMENT IS OVER $ 200,000 AND IN REALITY IS ABOUT $450.000. What can you say? They are not real Christians but hirelings, a wealthy businessman. That certainly doesn’t match up with most Americans’ idea of a pastor, but it’s simply reality many false pastors-they write books, do speeches, get rich, and do want to enjoy their wealth on earth. http://thenonconformer.yolasite.com/index/hireling

Historically, Billy Graham’s deception is one of the ,,greatest” deceptions that has ever been perpetrated. The Associated Press reported from M I N N E A P O L I S, Nov. 21,2000 – The Rev. Billy Graham, America’s best known evangelist, is stepping down from the head of the ministry he founded a half-century ago. His son, the Rev. Franklin Graham, has been named chief executive officer of the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association, which was founded in 1950. The elder Graham, who turned 82 this month, will remain chairman of the board and hopes to conduct several crusades next year. He was diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease about six years ago. He spent three months at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minn., earlier this year after a crusade in Nashville. But the financial statements of Billy Graham Evangelist Association for the last ten years have shown that Dr. Billy Graham has taken a one hundred percent salary as chairman of BGEA. But it’s a fact that Dr. Billy Graham has not worked a hundred percent of the time and not even fifty percent.

So is this right for a man who is supposed to be “Mr. Integrity” to take a hundred percent salary, plus pension plus one hundred percent of other fringe benefits and compensations and works less than fifty percent of the time? Grace Community Church, Southern Baptist Convention, in Auburn, Washington-which counted Ned Graham, his wife, and their two sons as members established in 1999 the fact that Ned Graham was an adulterer, alcoholic, wife abuser, and drug user and revoked Graham’s ministerial credentials. It directed Graham to stop using the title reverend. Yet in a style reminiscent of Jimmy Swaggart, who refused to be defrocked by the Assembly of God denomination, Ned Graham left that congregation for another church. Concerns about his rising financial compensation during tough economic times have prompted evangelist Franklin Graham to temporarily give up future contributions to his retirement plans at the two Christian charities he leads. As president of the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association and Samaritan’s Purse, he receives two full-time salaries and two retirement packages. Last year his total compensation from the two Christian ministries was $1.2 million. The size of Graham’s total 2008 compensation — $535,000 from Samaritan’s Purse and $669,000 from Charlotte, N.C.-based BGEA — drew questions from nonprofit experts. They doubted that one person — even the energetic, globe-trotting Graham — can do two full-time jobs when those positions are head of organizations that employ hundreds and spend hundreds of millions around the world.

As head of the Boone, N.C.-based Samaritan’s Purse, Graham earned more last year than any other leader of an international relief agency based in the United States. That includes eight with larger budgets, according to data compiled by Guidestar, a group that monitors non-profits. Some charity watchers said they know of no other instance where one person leads two separate organizations. And they wondered whether it was possible to effectively do so. “It’s a very strange and somewhat unique situation … and it raises questions,” said Ken Berger of Charity Navigator, the nation’s largest evaluator of non-profits. Pablo Eisenberg, a senior fellow at the Georgetown Public Policy Institute said: “How can you do two full-time jobs at the same time? It’s outrageous.”

THE SCANDAL OF CHRISTIAN GHOSTWRITING Readers pay exorbitant prices for the books of Christian superstars, never knowing that the volumes are actually written by no-name “ghosts.” Among the big names pulling this stunt: Hal Lindsey, Chuck Colson, Jim Bakker, Billy Graham, Oral Roberts, Benny Hinn, John Ankerberg, Hank Hanegraaff, David Jeremiah and Jerry Falwell.” And several of these men quickly circled their wagons and tried to come up with excuses. Charismatic faith healer Benny Hinn took the direct approach. He went on Paul Crouch’s Trinity Broadcasting Network and personally introduced his ghostwriter! Hinn gave the lame excuse that his books were anointed by God, but he just needed help in getting it all into words and into book form. Are some of the most cherished books in your personal Christian library written by ghostwriters, some of whom are even homosexuals, atheists, and New Agers . The Scandal of Christian Ghostwriting, has caused quite a stir.

Some Christian celebrities who use ghostwriters are panic-stricken. Many are wiggling and squirming in discomfort. They are embarrassed that their money-making scam was finally unmasked for what it is: A deception on the buying public. The total compensation of the heads of religious non-profit organizations including Evangelists Kenneth Copeland, Benny Hinn, and Franklin Graham remains one of American’s best kept secrets bringing up the question if the prominent religious leaders in America have any integrity.The total compensation of the heads of religious non-profit organizations including Evangelists Kenneth Copeland, Benny Hinn, and Franklin Graham remains one of American’s best kept secrets bringing up the question if the prominent religious leaders in America have any integrity. Unknown to most Americans is the fact that when religious non-profits organizations such as Benny Hinn, Robert Tilton or Bill Graham Evangelistic Organization get in trouble due to state audits, they just pick up their organization and move to another state and start all over again, for Non-profits organizations are incorporated by the state and not the Federal government. As a result Evangelist Robert Tilton moved his organization to Florida from Texas and Benny Hinn moved his organization to Texas from Florida. It’s a shell game! One is so stupid not to listen to God over man.. Billy Graham lied and said Mormons are Christian too.. Billy Graham is also on record stating that people can have salvation through paganism (another name for witchcraft). For instance, in McCall Magazine (Jan. 1978) Graham stated, “I used to believe that pagans in far-off countries were lost–were going to hell. I no longer believe that. I believe that there are other ways of recognizing the existence of God–through nature, for instance.” Pagans believe that salvation can be obtained through nature. We quote a paragraph from a letter sent to Billy Graham clear back in the 1950s by a Pastor who, grieved by what Billy Graham was doing to the harvest field, said: “Some people say that if you have just one convert in an evangelistic campaign, it is worth the meeting. That is not true. The evangelist, as the pastor and teacher, is given to the Body of Christ.

The real test of an evangelistic campaign is not how many people are converted but what kind of a spiritual condition does it leave in a community. Billy Graham is not only failing in the number of people he leads to the Lord Jesus Christ in this day when hearts are hungry and most people are afraid of what may happen in the world and when it is easier to get people converted than it ever has been in my lifetime, but Billy Graham is pulling the limbs off of the evangelistic trees and the orchard is being left in bad condition. As we have often said, the real test of an evangelist is not just how many converts he has but does he leave the orchard in condition so it will keep bearing fruit.”

Ezekiel 3:18 When I say unto the wicked, Thou shalt surely die; and thou givest him not warning, nor speakest to warn the wicked from his wicked way, to save his life; the same wicked man shall die in his iniquity; but his blood will I require at thine hand.

19 Yet if thou warn the wicked, and he turn not from his wickedness, nor from his wicked way, he shall die in his iniquity; but thou hast delivered thy soul.

Ezekiel 33: When I say unto the wicked, O wicked man, thou shalt surely die; if thou dost not speak to warn the wicked from his way, that wicked man shall die in his iniquity; but his blood will I require at thine hand.

9 Nevertheless, if thou warn the wicked of his way to turn from it; if he do not turn from his way, he shall die in his iniquity; but thou hast delivered thy soul.

2 Corinthians 4:1 Therefore seeing we have this ministry, as we have received mercy, we faint not;

Ephesians 4:12 For the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ:

The Graham Hireling family who steal God’s money are not saints.. it is not what you preach that counts alone but what you do now.. I would rather have these preachers live real Christianity not lie about it.. Now real Biblical repentance evident and it includes s admitting one sins to God, stopping and consciously turning away from them, turning back toward God, and personally accepting Jesus Christ finished work, forgiveness for them. True repentance is confession, contrition, change; replacement and it involves the whole person, Our Body, Soul, Spirit. It is also a personal, ongoing event. It is visible to all now too..

MONEY MONEY, HOW IT WAS BEING COLLECTED AND SPENT IS AN ISSUE WITH JESUS STILL NOW TOO FOLLOW THE MONEY , THE ROOT OF ALL EVIL THE OLDEST RULE OF GOOD JOURNALISM STILL TOO.. YOU HAVE TO BE AN IDIOT TO TRY TO JUSTIFY BILLY GRAHAM LIVING HIGH ON A HOG NOW TOO.. THAT IS NOT THE LIFESTYLE JESUS AND THE APOSTLES LIVED..

Now I am a normal, typical Pastor who really dislikes crooked bad politicians, bad civil and public servants, bad cops, bad pastors, bad lawyers, liars, thieves, crooks etc..The whole world sadly too often still lies in control of the devil and his followers,The whole world sadly too often still lies in control of the devil and his followers, but it does not mean I have to go along with them still.. Telling lies, half truths is too too difficult, for all of us have to remember the lies they had said, and the truth as well, and most people cannot do that , thus they rather do as a result go crazy.. So Me I do not write to please men or women, to be politically correct, and I prefer the to deal with, write the simple truths, I also do readily share the good things I have learned freely. Telling lies is a sin even for a Billy Graham and you now too.

Beware always of men and women, bullies, tormentors, control freaks, persons, civil and public servants, politicians, pastors, leaders, elders, who falsely do, will try to enslave you, oppress you, exploit you even while they claim they are proclaiming the truth, democracy, trying to help you, etc.,

Is 51:23 ..your tormentors {and} oppressors, those who said to you, Bow down, that we may ride {or} tread over you; and you have made your back like the ground and like the street for them to pass over..,

Too many sinful. spoiled persons clearly have a false concept of God, that they also falsely try to teach to others too, where God is a good guy, the devil is the bad guy, and in their religion God does not punish anyone for their sin. Now this false theological ostrich concept of God is PERSONALLY mostly held clearly to deny facing the possibility of the existence of the negative consequences for one’s personal sins, to AVOID facing up to, or immediately dealing with them, admitting them. Had they read the Bible they would have seen how God still punishes all persons for their still unrepentant sins.

Jer 46:28 But I will chasten {and} correct you in just measure, and I will not hold you guiltless by any means {or} leave you unpunished. Gal 5:19 Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these; Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness, 20 Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies, 21 Envyings, murders, drunkenness, revellings, and such like: of the which I tell you before, as I have also told you in time past, that they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God.

(Rev 18:4 KJV) And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues. (Rev 18:5 KJV) For her sins have reached unto heaven, and God hath remembered her iniquities.

Mat 7:16 Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles? 17 Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit. 18 A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit.

Mat 7:19 Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire. 20 Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them. Mat 7:21 Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven.

1 John 2:15 KJV) Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him. 16 For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world. 17 And the world passeth away, and the lust thereof: but he that doeth the will of God abideth for ever.

2 Cor 6:14 Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness? 15 And what concord hath Christ with Belial? or what part hath he that believeth with an infidel? 16 And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols? for ye are the temple of the living God; as God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people. 17 Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you, 18 And will be a Father unto you, and ye shall be my sons and daughters, saith the Lord Almighty. 2 Cor 7:1 Having therefore these promises, dearly beloved, let us cleanse ourselves from all filthiness of the flesh and spirit, perfecting holiness in the fear of God.

Eph 5:11 And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them. “

I stated the facts Goy John says to me in reply Who are you to judge another’s servant?

So I said “Hey hypocrite you show to all what a liar are you judged me, but what I cannot judge others? you really have to be an idol worshipper still? Get real.. (Prov 27:5 KJV) Open rebuke is better than secret love.

The Bible forbids only the unrighteous judgment, had you really read it now you would have known that too… do you pick the parts of the Bible you like only or do you apply all the parts of the Bible to yourself firstly such as 1 Thessalonians 5:21 Prove all things; hold fast that which is good.

2 Thessalonians 2:15 Therefore, brethren, stand fast, and hold the traditions which ye have been taught, whether by word, or our epistle.

2 Timothy 1:13 Hold fast the form of sound words, which thou hast heard of me, in faith and love which is in Christ Jesus.

Titus 1:9 Holding fast the faithful word as he hath been taught, that he may be able by sound doctrine both to exhort and to convince the gainsayers. Apostle Paul said he was, is the chief of sinners himself.. “This is a faithful saying, and worthy of all acceptation, that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners; of whom I am chief .“—I Tim. 1:15 the same Apostle Paul who now also judged and rebuked apostle Peter for his sin as well .The Record of the Apostle Paul Rebuking Peter Galatians 2:11-21 , Apostle Paul Rebuking Peter, Because Peter Was Wrongly Treating the Gentile Believers as Second-class Citizens (Gal 2:11 KJV) But when Peter was come to Antioch, I withstood him to the face, because he was to be blamed. so you also not longer respect apostle Peter as well because he continually also now sinned while following the Lord Jesus? (Mark 14:72 KJV) And the second time the cock crew. And Peter called to mind the word that Jesus said unto him, Before the cock crow twice, thou shall deny me thrice. And when he thought thereon, he wept.

Webster’s defines the act of judging as “to form an opinion about through careful weighing of evidence and testing of premises.” The problem arises because judging can be subjective. In other words, your judgments are based firstly on your own perceptions, motives, and understandings. This is why two people can judge the exact same situation and come up with different determinations. Did you with Katherine Khulman, examine her whole life, what she lived, preached, taught or just by one bad past act of her you condemned her falsely? Since the judgments of man are therefore rooted in the “opinions” of man or of a women, no man’s judgments can be taken as absolute or complete truth. What did God tell you now about her himself? Jesus was able to hear God’s words to pronounce God’s judgments. “Judge not according to the appearance, but judge righteous judgment.” (John 7:24). We must have our will in full subjection to God’s which enables us to know God’s own words on every subject and allows us to be sent by God to others with His message. Or did you now even bother to pray to him about her before you ran away with your condemnations?

The Word of God says that God enables man to judge righteously, commands man to judge righteously too, and is pleased with those who seek to judge righteously . The fact that the desire to judge righteously is highly esteemed by God. King Solomon asks, “Give therefore thy servant an understanding heart to judge thy people, that I may discern between good and bad: for who is able to judge this thy so great a people?” We are also told not to judge according to appearances or by the flesh (John 7:24; John 8:15; James 2:1-4).

The blind accuser of me, clearly rather the ignorant fool cannot see his own, always still justifiable now too according to him, sin , wrong doing is now still so ready to take on other people sins, but this act of his still will not make his own wrong doings go away ehhh.. He clearly even shows to many his own ignorance in the Bible and his lack of practise in reality, for the Bible does not now forbid judging all others, otherwise why would the fool himself try to do it? The devil can quote the Bible and so do his followers, the false accusers of the brethren now too.. the devil hates the truth being posted…

Was firstly your own exemplary meekness, real love evident or only STILL your false condemnation now of me, and any others? By their own fruits you can tell who they are.. bad persons who need to firstly take the beam out of their own eyes.. I Like those hypocrite who clearly rarely read the Bible and quote falsely a verse out of the Bible like do not judge others, but they still do judge me when they quoted the verse too.. but yet hypocritically you dare to judge me yourself.. why is that? you personally do not practice the Bible? and clearly still do not practice what you preach to me, others? The Bible forbids only the unrighteous judgment,

I Corinthians 11:31-32 that we judge ourselves first so that we will not be judged

(II Chronicles 19:6) “…Take heed what ye do: for ye judge not for man, but for the LORD, who is with you in the judgment.”

A false “accuser of the brethren.” is evident by ones clear absence of real love for them too.

(Prov 31:8 KJV) Open thy mouth for the dumb in the cause of all such as are appointed to destruction. 9 Open thy mouth, judge righteously, and plead the cause of the poor and needy.

(1 Cor 5:12 KJV) For what have I to do to judge them also that are without? do not ye judge them that are within?

(1 Cor 6:2 KJV) Do ye not know that the saints shall judge the world? and if the world shall be judged by you, are ye unworthy to judge the smallest matters? 3 Know ye not that we shall judge angels? how much more things that pertain to this life? 4 If then ye have judgments of things pertaining to this life, set them to judge who are least esteemed in the church.

1 Cor 6:5 KJV) I speak to your shame. Is it so, that there is not a wise man among you? no, not one that shall be able to judge between his brethren?

(1 Cor 10:15 KJV) I speak as to wise men; judge ye what I say.

(1 Cor 14:29 KJV) Let the prophets speak two or three, and let the other judge.

(1 Cor 14:40 KJV) Let all things be done decently and in order. and “Whatsoever ye do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus” (Colossians 3:17).

Galatians 6 1 Brethren, if a man is overtaken in any trespass, you who are spiritual restore such a one in a spirit of gentleness, considering yourself lest you also be tempted. 2 Bear one another’s burdens, and so fulfill the law of Christ. 3 For if anyone thinks himself to be something, when he is nothing, he deceives himself. 4 But let each one examine his own work, and then he will have rejoicing in himself alone, and not in another.

It is always evident that the mostly still liars, people claiming to be good persons, who try to enforce the one way rules on others, those even they do not practice, are still just liars and hypocrites.. and of course they do not want you to judge them, to know and expose this to any others..

But a person is known by the company they keep.. One having bad company leads to one going to hell too.. tell me who your friends are and I will tell you who you are now.. a person is also know by what he does, and the values he or she have.. some people have bad values, some people falsely go extreme with good values..

But who am I to say? I’m not his judge”???

If you yourself now cannot judge what people are like so how can you see the devil then too?

You yourself are not Holy Spirit filled even then.. one needs to deal with that firstly.. Of course the devil does not want you to have the gift of discernments of Spirits.. if the devil cannot get at you personally he will next come to you directly in the form of a bother, sister even, a person.. (2 Cor 2:11 KJV) Lest Satan should get an advantage of us: for we are not ignorant of his devices.

There is no such thing as living in a world in which individuals are not being judged by others for the actions that they take or what they say. Making a statement such as, “you cannot judge me”, is ludicrous. A Christian person still can judge another Christian’s individual’s behavior or actions, writings, speech but not the intent of any individual’s heart. Only God can do that.. But God alone will judge the non Christians, not us, and we cannot judge what other people do eat as being right or wrong.

Jer 47:6 O you sword of the Lord, how long will it be before you are quiet?

Jer 47:7 How can it [the sword of the Lord] be quiet when the Lord has given it an assignment to discharge?

(Micah 3:8 KJV) But truly I am full of power by the spirit of the LORD, and of judgment, and of might, to declare unto Jacob his transgression, and to Israel his sin.

(Micah 3:11 KJV) The heads thereof judge for reward, and the priests thereof teach for hire, and the prophets thereof divine for money: yet will they lean upon the LORD, and say, Is not the LORD among us? none evil can come upon us.

(Prov 27:5 KJV) Open rebuke is better than secret love.

(Rev 3:19 KJV) As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten: be zealous therefore, and repent.

Many now are not only clearly dishonest, uninspired, boring but they do also mostly have a personal agenda that is so transparent that sadly they are are an embarrassment, their agenda clear involves the fact want to uplift themselves, their own gospel, sect, denomination mostly still as well. In love they should really read and practice the whole Bible firstly themselves.

Sow the wrong seed and you can also next reap a whirl wind , church pastors included now, and there is really no such thing as a little bit allowable sins for pastors included, no such thing as being a little bit pregnant here too.. and it is still clearly unacceptable for any Pastors to counsel a man’s wife behind his back and without his knowledge, approval, permission, but even this sadly an unacceptable common occurrence in evangelical churches now too, even in the Brethren, Baptist, Alliance and Pentecostals churches now too.. Many many pastors do wrongfully still think that the citizens complaints about them is all a big joke, they laugh at it, mock them too. Pastors falsely think they are above the law and yet many of them have, do threaten to sue you when you get too close and personal about them. They want it both ways, they cannot though. They the evangelical pastors firstly do need to get real, to act like real Christians firstly now and work for God rather then self. They seem to have nice cars, nice homes, great salaries, expensive perks, vacations and too too many of them.. Pastors Jim Baker, Jimmy Swaggart was not the first or last pervert, crook. The bad pastors are trying to get falsely their rewards on earth it seems and not in heaven.. Do what I say and not what I do is what they also preach.There is no denial as to how cold, ruthless, uncompassionate, uncaring, immoral, ruthless, slanderous, gossiping, abusive the majority of evangelical pastors where in my own many personal encounters experiences too that I had but I did rightfully did not throw about the baby with the dirty wash water. Rather I rightfully tended to ask the bad pastors and their bad supporters now too to change to repent instead..

In reality too many bad pastors left on their own will continue to cheat, lies, steal, abuse others, the pastors and cops, politicians included now. They all need to be regulated, supervised by the governments and some now rightfully even arrested too. A man’s enemies, bullies and thieves will be those persons even from his own family, Church are still a reality too.

But I know from many years of Canadian experiences that 70 percent of pastors are bad, hypocrites, pretenders.. in all denominations..Also Jesus never sold one Sermon of his, nor the Apostles, or any of their books, … so I rightfully cannot stand those greedy, money lusting charlatans who clearly try to make money by selling Christian literature, tapes, music, or what ever on the subject of Prophecy, healing, etc., .. and no matter what their excuses are now too.. Jesus said as you have freely received so freely give. And that is what I have done the last 4 decades too… and so should we all, trusting in the Faith for God to supply our needs, not begging for money, or wrongfully stealing by pretending to be a non profitable tax exempt corporation, organization basically so not to pay taxes as well.. How greedy can you get and pretend it to be Christian now too is the game many wrongfully play too even by Church pastors, elders, deacons…. It seems these days that even the citizens, TV evangelists, Pastors, cops, politicians, Ministers tend to be still next equally all bad if left on their own, unsupervised? and rapidly go downhill. You would be surprised how many Protestant, Catholics, evangelicals, and cults like Mormons practise tax evasion now too.. much too many for a start too.

“The ignorance of the Bible and the works of the Holy Spirit have placed many people, churches, radio and television ministries, and itinerant ministries in jeopardy for their very existence because they are so desperate for success, numbers and money that they are ready to chase after any experience or anybody whom they think will attract people to them. There are many people today who do not know their Scriptures and the penalties that come from straying away from them. They are like the Sadducees of whom Jesus said, “You are wrong, because you know neither the scriptures nor the power of God” (Matt. 22: 29; Mk. 12: 24).” Their ignorance of the Bible is alone not the issue, most Christians, church leaders also wrongfully personally do pick and choose what parts of the Bible they will practice, and which one they will not.

All professing Christians daily need to practice what they know, even the ten commandments. a major US news media had interviewed many evangelical pastors and they had reported that 70 percent of evangelical pastors had had admitted they had committed adultery, and I myself know personally much many evangelical pastors that have committed adultery. I have even directly witnessed them stealing ,money, lying gossiping, slandering too. I have rarely met any Godly pastors in the last 50 years, I can count those on one hand too. I have helped to remove many, many bad evangelical church pastors, founding pastors too, for their unrepentant immoralities as well in Canada in the last many years too. When I do deal with a still unrepentant pastor I also do get a clear vision of their additional major sins, and you should see next their pale faces, holy terror, their shakes and trembling, even that of their spouses when I personally do start to reveal what I do know about them, their unrepentant immoral acts, and they the pastor really do they know that they are reaping what they have sowed.. still most of them, 90 percent do not repent, rather they tend to leave town instead. I do also tell them you will have wished you had listened to me and repented , for next it is a terrible thing to fall into the hands of the living God as well.. I can never overcome the fact that most of them think that they cannot be rebuked, corrected, and falsely think that God had overlooked their unacceptable sins because time has passed as well and he did not. I have helped to remove the federal tax exempt charter of a really bad evangelical church now as well and it closed as a result too

Christians doing still dirty works and hiding behind titles, corporate names still is also unacceptable… does not impress me at all.

I was sitting in a significant church where the pastor was putting on a show.. so I prayed and asked God as to what he had thought of this pastor, and he had replied that he has the same ability to sin that your brother has. and you would be shocked as to how many Pastors do not pray one hour a day or read their Bible one hour a day.. for they all of persons should be the first ones to do this too. Do deal with this all, rightfully the bad pastors. Let us all know what you have done about it too. Even Reference: “Fraud, Embezzlement, Illegal Tax Free Benefits .” Too many sinful. spoiled persons clearly have a false concept of God, that they also falsely try to teach to others too, where God is a good guy, the devil is the bad guy, and in their religion God does not punish anyone for their sin. Now this false theological ostrich concept of God is PERSONALLY mostly held clearly to deny facing the possibility of the existence of the negative consequences for one’s personal sins, to AVOID facing up to, or immediately dealing with them, admitting them. Had they read the Bible they would have seen how God still punishes all persons for their still unrepentant sins.

The WRONGFULLY STILL Unrepentant bully’s problem is that he or she is one of those bad persons who only feels truly alive when voicing hostility and contempt for his “enemies.” Without that, he or she starts gasping for air. It’s his nature.. self-destructive” .. clearly these immoral Bully, Basher of others, Abusers of others has a disappointed, deflated ego, negative self worth, most likely related to past unresolved guilt, as a result of that the bully, he or she, tries falsely to build their ego up by bashing, hating others, by being an antagonists against his proclaimed enemies, which too often also is most people , for he or she no longer trust anyone, and Abusers this is a common very typical approach, fact in the character build up of Bullies, Bashers, but their approach is futile, the subsequent feeling of self worth dissipates too quickly, are actually replaced by guilt, and his ego, self worth likely needs to be recharged with new hate.. and is replaced with more and larger hatred of the others. I have seen this type of wrong behavior not just in bad managers, bad politicians, bad persons, but in alcoholics, and most often but also in religious fundamentals evangelicals now as well as the crooked pastor wrongfully fighting for control over others. Public exposure and prosecution of these bad persons here too services everyone’s best interest.

still I we all, each one of us are according to the Bible to confirm everything with the Word of God, and not any mere men’s personal views? on an even fair, directly related scriptural context. let’s be fair in our Bible studies. The Bible says Christ is the head of the Church. Before too many persons do falsely try to explain the Bible away the really should still first live it.. It is still all better if we really look at the Bible passages on rebellion to authority and how many tried to justify it in the BIBLE, Saul, and, Arron, Moses’s sister Miriam as well, and what happened to even Miriam too.. was not the rebellious act of Miriam opposed by God himself too?

I corinthians 5:12 For what have I to do to judge them also that are without? do not ye judge them that are within? 13 But them that are without God judgeth. Therefore put away from among yourselves that wicked person. 6: 2 Do ye not know that the saints shall judge the world? and if the world shall be judged by you, are ye unworthy to judge the smallest matters? 3 Know ye not that we shall judge angels? how much more things that pertain to this life? 4 If then ye have judgments of things pertaining to this life, set them to judge who are least esteemed in the church. 5 I speak to your shame. Is it so, that there is not a wise man among you? no, not one that shall be able to judge between his brethren?.. 9 Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind, 10 Nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God. 11 And such were some of you: but ye are washed, but ye are sanctified, but ye are justified in the name of the Lord Jesus, and by the Spirit of our God. 12 All things are lawful unto me, but all things are not expedient: all things are lawful for me, but I will not be brought under the power of any. (Jer 13:23 KJV) Can the Ethiopian change his skin, or the leopard his spots? then may ye also do good, that are accustomed to do evil. (Prov 16:25 KJV) There is a way that seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death.

Only 4 persons had showed up to pray against the then Prime Minister Paul Martin MP and he Paul Martin unexpectedly, unbelievably shortly after that had lost his office of Prime Minister, and why did so many people show up in the first place? God only needed 2 persons to agree in prayer on this in Jesus name and he would have acted upon it as well.

No matter what the goal is, or how valueable it maybe, leading others to Christ included, the ends do not justify the means by anyone, pastors, elders, deacons, others , and cheating, lying, stealing included now.. How you get there is as important as where you are going. Asked also now Moses and all the people of Israel who missed the promised Land cause they had simply refused to do it God’s way.

Hidden agendas, the world is full of it, many people have hidden agendas, Pastors, Ministers, politicians, cops too. Sadly some people they tend present their own “facts,” but fall short in truthfulness for they tend to falsely have a hidden agenda, and often they want to be falsely personally worshipped and live in sin too.

Is 2:22 Cease to trust in [weak, frail, and dying] man, whose breath is in his nostrils [for so short a time]; in what sense can he be counted as having intrinsic worth?

There are still much too many persons with a big bad mouth who got so used to wagging their big bad tongues, telling their lies about others, that next they had falsely started to think they can and will get away with it for ever.. and they are next shocked when they are rightfully not only rebuked, but fully exposed to all as to who they are really .. slanderers, liars and human rights abusers..

I am not guilty is what most people say when they are accused of wrong doings.. even convicted felons.. Hey I saw for over 40 years 2 separate persons continually steal, commit thefts.. and just cause they were never actually convicted by a court of law did not mean they did not steal. Now when I confronted these persons many times about their stealing, they denied it.. they lied.. now the problem about these ostriches in false denial, about their lying is that they had next started to believe their own lies, you become now a mental, a basket case.. 1 Peter 5 :8 Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour:9 Whom resist stedfast in the faith, knowing that the same afflictions are accomplished in your brethren that are in the world.10 But the God of all grace, who hath called us unto his eternal glory by Christ Jesus, after that ye have suffered a while, make you perfect, stablish, strengthen, settle you. 11 To him be glory and dominion for ever and ever. Amen False Denial as to who they really are now by the people who really do delude themselves too often about their self importance and the positive role they are functioning in is very common, a daily occurrence. We read about it often in the news when some politician or cops, professionals, pastors too is charged with Corruption and they lie and say I am not guilty, the facts are untrue, this is absurd, crazy nuts, as too often they still cannot deny the reality especially after they are exposed for what they really are too. The find out the hard way that a good name was, is worth more over any silver or gold acquired too.. a bad reputation is worthless. When you criticize openly some of these very the bad persons one tends to get a false denial. They still really cannot face the reality there are things in their life that need serious, drastic changes. These people in denial are the ones who often need professional help for their own short comings, sickness. Their false denial, diversion, distortion does not change the negative reality about the unacceptable acts. Corruptions occurs now Not just in Churches, amongst the police, politicians, civil and public servants. These People in the state of false denials, clearly also who lie often, they do now also tend to have severe personal, mental disorders next even cause one tends to eventually believe next ones own lies as being the truth, and they can no longer differentiate their own lies from reality, the truth. By their false denials Who is fooling whom? You cannot fool all the people all the time and now matter how smart you are there is still someone more wiser who can see the truth still too.. Narcissistic, selfish, self centered Mental Disorders too evident now even in many of the so called Professionals even bad pastors, leaders leads these persons to dwell in self-absorption, fantasy, illusion, where she or he has exaggerated claims to talents, importance, or specialness, manifesting evidence of a need for constant admiration from others, a lack of empathy for all others, persistent in this too, have rigid personality traits and coping styles, clearly inflexible, do show a hypersensitivity to any criticism , defeat or negative realities thus they rather are pathological in denial by the their falsity, contrived replacement of the truths which they still must face eventually . These SEVERE PERSONALITY disorders are generally personally ongoing too leading to more impaired social and/or occupational functioning and can make it difficult to pinpoint a clear dividing line between their pathology and their so called normality. Most of these people with their personality disorders may not perceive that there is anything wrong with their behavior and thus they are not motivated to change it. It is important to note that these personality disorders are considered to have their onset in late adolescence or early adulthood and they alone are responsible for it too. Again false Denial, it is very very common when many an individual, even amongst so called professionals, even in pastors now included, are openly confronted with their own wrong doings, that they resort to a false denial. When confronted with the truth the denier they often respond with a similar personal counter attack remark as ”you are crazy”. “I reject your reality… and substitute my own.” Their false denial, diversion, distortion does not change the negative reality about themselves still though. Sadly it is a negative natural human tendency to devolve into denial.” It’s not just a moral compass that’s lacking, but the ability to honest, or to stand apart. Denial often comes out of a false pride, a fear of being openly exposed as being wrong. Denial is a false convenient escape, excuse for inaction for persons now facing a situation that requires a decision or action that conflicts with his or her established past policy. Denial too often can be further disastrous upon themselves and others.. for denial is not seeing data at all or seeing it and coming to an erroneous conclusion within oneself. One’s false denial is often based on a false assumption of one’s past great success and often precedes their own severe personal failure next due to a personal disconnect with real life. Illustrated fully by the story of the Emperor with new clothes.

False Denial (also called abnegation) is a often defense mechanism in which a person is faced with a fact that is too uncomfortable to accept and rejects it instead, insisting that it is not true despite what may be overwhelming evidence, a mechanism of the immature mind that conflicts with the ability to learn from and cope with reality. The subject may now deny the reality of the unpleasant fact altogether (simple denial), admit the fact but deny its seriousness (minimization) or admit both the fact and seriousness but deny responsibility (transference). The concept of denial is particularly related to the denial of one’s addiction to alcohol for example, or to one slandering others, abusing them stealing, lying.. their denial or their minimization of their own wrong doings is the essential part of what enables them next to to continue his or her behavior in the face of evidence that, to an outsider, that is overwhelming. “The American Heart Association cites denial as a principal reason that treatment of a heart attack is delayed. Because the symptoms are so varied, and often have other potential explanations, the opportunity exists for the patient to deny the emergency, often with fatal consequences. It is common for patients to delay mammograms or other tests because of a fear of cancer, even though this is clearly maladaptive.”

Types of Denial include now Denial of fact: This form of denial is where someone avoids a fact by lying. This lying can take the form of an outright falsehood (commission), leaving out certain details in order to tailor a story (omission), This form of denial involves avoiding personal responsibility by blaming, minimizing or justifying. Denial of responsibility: Denial of impact: avoiding thinking about or understanding the harms their behavior have caused to themselves or others. Denial of awareness: they do not admit any previous awareness of the negative reality. Denial of cycle: Denial of cycle is where a person avoids looking at their decisions leading up to an event or does not consider their pattern of decision making and how harmful behavior is repeated. Denial of denial: This latter form of denial typically overlaps with all of the other forms of denial, but involves more self-delusion. People in a false denial are really nuts, delusional..

There are tools and practices that we can implement to overcome the psychological trap of anyone’s false denial. The Public exposure and prosecution of the guilty is one of the best approach serving everyone’s best interest too.

It is also a clearly established fact with good basis as to why our leaders, politicians, police, military, public and civil servants and all Christians they who are always to be exemplary are even personally are to held to a higher standard, accountability in reality. God said so.

How absurd for you here to talk about love only when love is not being an ostrich, walking in pigs mire but confessing our sins to Jesus.. Galatians 6:7 Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap. 1 John 1:9 If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.

Had you read your Bible seriously you would have known all this this

(1 Cor 4:21 KJV) What will ye? shall I come unto you with a rod, or in love, and in the spirit of meekness?

Prov 27:5 Open rebuke is better than secret love.

Rev 3:19 As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten: be zealous therefore, and repent.”

There is absolutely nothing in the Word about people losing THE RIGHT TO rebuke others. In fact the Bible encourages us to rebuke those who are teaching falsely so that they may repent and come back to sound doctrine (Tit. 1:13). So. Who do you think silly Billy he is … God? The big question is: Will he repent of his being a Hireling ?

The Graham’s are an angel of light to some , but along with their preaching of dubious origin come doctrines of demons that can shipwreck your faith! They are guilty of the sin if lying, living high on the hog, stealing God’s money still.. bad examples of real Christianity

if we confess our sins he forgives them.. if we hide them deny them he does not… REBUKE.. REBUKE,, REBUKE,, REBUKE,, REBUKE,, REBUKE,, Mark 8:33 But when he had turned about and looked on his disciples, he rebuked Peter, saying, Get thee behind me, Satan: for thou savourest not the things that be of God, but the things that be of men.

Revelation 3
19 As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten: be zealous therefore, and repent.

The book of Jonah is well known for the part about a whale swallowing a man for 3 days, but the purpose of this book is much different. Nineveh was a very sinful city full of wickedness, when God’s anger against their wickedness grew until He was ready to destroy the whole city. However, God didn’t want to destroy the city, so He sent them a messenger by the name of Jonah. Jonah rebelled against God, so God had to bring the whale on the scene to straighten him out. Jonah then went to the city, and delivered unto them the message that God gave him. The people took heed and feared the Lord, so they turned from their wicked ways, and repented before God. Even the king had a heart of repentance, and showed his sorrow by stripping off his royal clothes and sitting on a heap of ashes…

Jonah 3:6, “For word came unto the king of Nineveh, and he arose from his throne, and he laid his robe from him, and covered him with sackcloth, and sat in ashes.”

This wicked city turned from their ways, and repented. As a result, God’s heart went out to them, and He had mercy on them. He did not destroy the city, because He saw that the people were sorry for their sins.

Jonah 3:10, “And God saw their works, that they turned from their evil way; and God repented of the evil, that he had said that he would do unto them; and he did it not.”

Isaiah 1:18, “Come now, and let us reason together, saith the LORD: though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool.”

Joel 2:12-13, “Therefore also now, saith the LORD, turn ye even to me with all your heart, and with fasting, and with weeping, and with mourning: And rend your heart, and not your garments, and turn unto the LORD your God: for he is gracious and merciful, slow to anger, and of great kindness, and repenteth him of the evil.”

If there is any separation between us and God, the fault lies primarily within us and not with God .. the separation it is primarily due to our own unrepentant sins, our disobedience to God and his words, due also to our false persistence in doing things our own way, seeking our own mostly self centered, selfish will..

(1 Pet 3:12 KJV) For the eyes of the Lord are over the righteous, and his ears are open unto their prayers: but the face of the Lord is against them that do evil

(1 Pet 4:18 KJV) And if the righteous scarcely be saved, where shall the ungodly and the sinner appear?

Slander and Name calling so Unchristian, it is demonic and shows who your real father is now too.. God’s grace needs to accept that dreaded word, “responsibility.”

• “Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven. Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works?” (Matthew 7:21-22).

•”Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils” (1 Timothy 4:1).

•”And why call ye me, Lord, Lord, and do not the things which I say?” (Luke 6:46).

God Didn’t Include Any Exemptions

You can just about open up your Bible to any page and find a reference to God’s hatred of sin. No one, after reading the Bible from cover to cover, should be able to make the conclusion that God winks at iniquity. In several places, God lists the types of conduct He simply refuses to tolerate. When I read the following Scriptures, I failed to spot any exemptions allowing Christians to ignore God’s warnings: •”Whosoever hateth his brother is a murderer: and ye know that no murderer hath eternal life abiding in him” (1 John 3:15).

•”This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come. For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good, Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God; Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away” (2 Tim 3:1-5).

•”But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death” (Revelation 21:8).

•”For if after they have escaped the pollutions of the world through the knowledge of the Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, they are again entangled therein, and overcome, the latter end is worse with them than the beginning. For it had been better for them not to have known the way of righteousness, than, after they have known [it], to turn from the holy commandment delivered unto them. But it is happened unto them according to the true proverb, The dog [is] turned to his own vomit again; and the sow that was washed to her wallowing in the mire” (2 Peter 2:20-22).

•”But now I have written unto you not to keep company, if any man that is called a brother be a fornicator, or covetous, or an idolater, or a railer, or a drunkard, or an extortioner; with such an one no not to eat” (1 Corinthians 5:11).

The way I see scripture in the parable of the sower faith can grow, but faith can also die. People can and do lose faith. People can and do come to the point, usually through surrender to a life of sin and/or secularism, where they no longer believe in and no longer follow Jesus Christ, though at one time they did. 50 percent of once loudly professing Christians will abandon their faith next. If a person allows their “faith plant” to die (as in those that shrivel up under the heat of the sun in the parable of the sower), or if a person allows their “faith light” to go out (as in the case of the seven foolish virgins), that person is no longer a believer, and only believers are saved. Simply put, a believer is someone who has a real, living faith in Jesus Christ. Anyone who does not have genuine faith in Jesus Christ is, by definition, not a believer. Making the determination of who has it and who doesn’t is not always easy and not really even germane to this argument. For our purposes here, “you know you have faith in Jesus if you have faith in Jesus”, and “you know you don’t really believe in Him if you don’t believe in Him”. This is the light in which I read John 10:27-30. The sheep who know “My Name” and who “follow Me” are of course believers. Anyone who knows Jesus and who follows Him is a believer – and no one can snatch a believer out of Jesus’ hands or the Father’s hands. However, “if we deny Him, He will deny us, . . .for He cannot deny Himself” (2Tim.2:11-13). That is to say, in the terms of John 10:27-30, if we stop knowing Him and stop following Him, we, by our own self-willed choice, stop being His sheep. No one has “snatched us out of His hands” in that case; rather, we have abandoned Him. The whole tenor of scripture is about choice, and beyond all argument we continue to have free will after salvation, and that by definition is the ability to respond to God (or fail to do so). There have been many who have fallen away in the history of the church (cf. Phil.3:18), and it is prophesied that there will be many more in the future (2Thes.2:3;). any such scripture which are often claimed as absolute proof of “eternal security” on close examination always reveal that they do not exclude the possibility of apostasy.On the other hand, the Bible is replete with impassioned pleas and warnings about the dangers of giving in to a life of sinfulness on the one hand, most of which are very difficult to explain away (e.g., Matt.7:24-27; 10:33; Lk.6:46-49; 14:34-35; Jn.15:5-6; Rom.11:17-23; 1Cor.10:6-12; 15:2; 2Cor.13:5; 1Tim.6:20-21; 2Tim.2:12-13; Heb.2:1-3; 3:6-19; 10:35-39; 2Jn.1:8-9), and the necessity of holding onto faith on the other (e.g., 1Tim.6:12; 2Tim4:7):

1. Passages demonstrating that salvation is conditional upon continued faith:

You were once alienated from God – your very thoughts were hostile towards Him and your deeds were evil. Yet God has now made peace with you through the death of Christ in His physical body so that you may stand before Him as holy, without blemish and free from accusation – [this you will do] if you remain solidly grounded and firmly fixed in the faith, and un-moved from your hope in the gospel . . . Colossians 1:21-23

Here is a trustworthy saying: If we died with Him, we will also live with Him; if we persevere, we will also reign with Him. If we disown Him, He will also disown us; If we are faithless, He will remain faithful, for He cannot disown Himself. 2nd Timothy 2:11-13

It is through this gospel that you are being saved, if you hold firmly to the word I preached to you – otherwise you have believed in vain.1st Corinthians 15:2

We are of [Christ's] household, if we hold fast to our courage and confidence in this hope. Hebrews 3:6

For we have all become partners of Christ, if we hold fast to our original conviction firmly to the end. Hebrews 3:14

Examine yourselves to see whether you still stand steady in the faith. Put your qualifications [as Christians] to the test. Or didn’t you know this about yourselves, that Jesus Christ is at home in you – if He’s not, then you are already disqualified. 2nd Corinthians 13:5

These things all happened [to the Exodus generation] by way of an example so that we might not lust after what is evil as they did. Don’t practice idolatry, as some of them did (as the scripture says “the people sat down to eat and got up to frolic”). Don’t fornicate, as some of them did, and 23,000 of them fell dead in a single day. And let’s not put the Lord to the test, as some of them did, and were killed by snakes. And don’t complain, as some of them did, and were killed by the destroying angel. All these things happened to them to give us an example, and have been written in scripture to warn us as we confront history’s final epoch. So let whoever thinks he’s standing firm be careful not to fall! 1st Corinthians 10:12

Watch out for yourselves, so you don’t lose what you’ve worked so hard for, but receive a full reward instead. No one who goes wandering off – that is, does not keep to the teachings about Jesus Christ – has a share in God. 2nd John 8-9

The false and unbiblical doctrine of being saved by “Faith Alone” while seemingly offering “Eternal Security” actually offers very little security when clearly examined. For example, we sometimes see good Christian men turn away from the Gospel and commit a very serious sin. If we say that committing such a serious sin has no effect on one’s salvation we contradict the Gospel. If a person who claims to be a Christian because of a “Born Again” experience commits such a sin only to later say the his original “Born Again” experience was not a true one, but that his subsequent one was true, how does he know with infallibly certainty that this is so when he had been convinced that his first experience was true ?

Even if such a Christian does not fall into serious sin how does he know that he will not do so in the future ? He can claim as Peter did that his faith and love will not fail, but the Bible warns against making such a claim. [See Mark 14: 29-31 and the article on Love, section on St. Peter.] True humility leads us to accept how easy it would be for us to fall in the future.

The false doctrine of “Faith Alone” often leads a person to put his faith in his own estimation and evaluation of how true his faith really is. And trusting in one’s own judgment is not secure at all.Matthew 7:13-14, 21-23.

“Enter by the narrow gate; for the gate is wide and the way is easy, that leads to destruction, and those who enter by it are many. For the gate is narrow and the way is hard, that leads to life, and those who find it are few. … 21 Not every one who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ shall enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of my Father who is in heaven. On that day many will say to me, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name, and cast out demons in your name, and do many mighty works in your name?’ And then will I declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from me, you evildoers.’ ”

Matthew 25:10-13. “While they [the virgins that were foolish] went off to buy it [oil], the bridegroom came and those who were ready went into the wedding feast with him. Then the door was locked. Afterwards the other virgins came and said, ‘Lord, Lord, open the door for us!’ But he said in reply, ‘Amen, I say to you, I do not know you.’

Therefore, stay awake, for you know neither the day nor the hour.”

Jesus warns us against judging ourselves or others in the Parable of the Pharisee and the Tax Collector. Luke 18:9-14 “He then addressed this parable to those who were convinced of their own righteousness and despised everyone else. ‘Two people went up to the temple area to pray; one was a Pharisee and the other was a tax collector. The Pharisee took up his position and spoke this prayer to himself, “O God, I thank you that I am not like the rest of humanity—greedy, dishonest, adulterous—or even like this tax collector. I fast twice a week, and I pay tithes on my whole income.” But the tax collector stood off at a distance and would not even raise his eyes to heaven but beat his breast and prayed, “O God, be merciful to me a sinner.” I tell you, the latter went home justified, not the former; for everyone who exalts himself will be humbled, and the one who humbles himself will be exalted.’ ”

The Pharisee credited God for his spiritual blessings by thanking Him for them. However, God was displeased with him because he was presumptuous about his own spirituality and he assumed God’s sovereign role as judge.

1 Peter 5:8-9 “ Be sober and vigilant. Your opponent the devil is prowling around like a roaring lion looking for (someone) to devour. Resist him, steadfast in faith, knowing that your fellow believers throughout the world undergo the same sufferings.”

If we have received Jesus Christ then we have received His gift of eternal life. If we later reject Jesus then we lose that gift of Eternal life.

St. Paul says in Romans 8:38-39 “For I am convinced that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor present things, nor future things, nor powers, nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord.” But notice what he does not say. He does not say that sin cannot separate us from God. This is why the New Testament constantly warns the believers to avoid serious deadly sin.

Examples:

2 Peter 2:20 “For if, after they have escaped the defilements of the world through the knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, they are again entangled in them and overpowered, the last state has become worse for them than the first.” RSV

1 Corinthians 6:6-20 is addressed to believers and they are warned by St. Paul to avoid sins that would cause them to lose their salvation.

1 Corinthians 6:6-20 “But rather brother goes to court against brother, and that before unbelievers? … Why not rather put up with injustice? Why not rather let yourselves be cheated? Instead, you inflict injustice and cheat, and this to brothers. Do you not know that the unjust will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived; neither fornicators nor idolaters nor adulterers nor boy prostitutes nor practicing homosexuals nor thieves nor the greedy nor drunkards nor slanderers nor robbers will inherit the kingdom of God. That is what some of you used to be; but now you have had yourselves washed, you were sanctified, you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and in the Spirit of our God. … 15 Do you not know that your bodies are members of Christ?” NAB

Again in Ephesians, Galatians, and elsewhere we find more warnings for to Christians to avoid sins that would lead to eternal damnation. These warnings would not make sense if a person could not lose their salvation.

Ephesians 5:3-8 “But fornication and all impurity or covetousness must not even be named among you, as is fitting among saints. Let there be no filthiness, nor silly talk, nor levity, which are not fitting; but instead let there be thanksgiving. Be sure of this, that no fornicator or impure man, or one who is covetous (that is, an idolater), has any inheritance in the kingdom of Christ and of God. Let no one deceive you with empty words, for it is because of these things that the wrath of God comes upon the sons of disobedience. Therefore do not associate with them, for once you were darkness, but now you are light in the Lord; walk as children of light” RSV

Galatians 5:16,19-22 “But I say, walk by the Spirit, and do not gratify the desires of the flesh…19 Now the works of the flesh are plain: fornication, impurity, licentiousness, idolatry, sorcery, enmity, strife, jealousy, anger, selfishness, dissension, party spirit, envy, drunkenness, carousing, and the like. I warn you, as I warned you before, that those who do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God. But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness…”

Hebrews 10:26-29 “For if we sin deliberately after receiving the knowledge of the truth, there no longer remains a sacrifice for sins, but a fearful prospect of judgment, and a fury of fire which will consume the adversaries. A man who has violated the law of Moses dies without mercy at the testimony of two or three witnesses. How much worse punishment do you think will be deserved by the man who has spurned the Son of God, and profaned the blood of the covenant by which he was sanctified, and outraged the Spirit of grace ?” RSV

Hebrews 6:4-8 “For it is impossible to restore again to repentance those who have once been enlightened, who have tasted the heavenly gift, and have become partakers of the Holy Spirit, and have tasted the goodness of the word of God and the powers of the age to come, if they then commit apostasy, since they crucify the Son of God on their own account and hold him up to contempt. For land which has drunk the rain that often falls upon it, and brings forth vegetation useful to those for whose sake it is cultivated, receives a blessing from God. But if it bears thorns and thistles, it is worthless and near to being cursed; its end is to be burned.” RSV

1 John 5:16-17 “If anyone sees his brother sinning, if the sin is not deadly, he should pray to God and he will give him life. This is only for those whose sin is not deadly. There is such a thing as deadly sin, about which I do not say that you should pray. All wrongdoing is sin, but there is sin that is not deadly.” NAB

Philippians 2:12-13 :“So then, my beloved, obedient as you have always been, not only when I am present but all the more now when I am absent, work out your salvation with fear and trembling. For God is the one who, for his good purpose, works in you both to desire and to work.” .

Matthew 10 22 And ye shall be hated of all men for my name’s sake: but he that endureth to the end shall be saved.

James 1 12 Blessed is the man that endureth temptation: for when he is tried, he shall receive the crown of life, which the Lord hath promised to them that love him.

1 Peter 1 25 But the word of the Lord endureth for ever. And this is the word which by the gospel is preached unto you.

(1 Cor 14:40 KJV) Let all things be done decently and in order. and “Whatsoever ye do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus” (Colossians 3:17).

Galatians 6 1 Brethren, if a man is overtaken in any trespass, you who are spiritual restore such a one in a spirit of gentleness, considering yourself lest you also be tempted. 2 Bear one another’s burdens, and so fulfill the law of Christ. 3 For if anyone thinks himself to be something, when he is nothing, he deceives himself. 4 But let each one examine his own work, and then he will have rejoicing in himself alone, and not in another. It is always evident that the mostly still liars, people claiming to be good persons, who try to enforce the one way rules on others, those even they do not practice, are still just liars and hypocrites.. and of course they do not want you to judge them, to know and expose this to any others.. But a person is known by the company they keep.. One having bad company leads to one going to hell too.. tell me who your friends are and I will tell you who you are now.. a person is also know by what he does, and the values he or she have.. some people have bad values, some people falsely go extreme with good values..

Now real Biblical repentance evident and it includes s admitting one sins to God, stopping and consciously turning away from them, turning back toward God, and personally accepting Jesus Christ finished work, forgiveness for them. True repentance is confession, contrition, change; replacement and it involves the whole person, Our Body, Soul, Spirit. It is also a personal, ongoing event. It is visible to all now too..

Gal 5:19 Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these; Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness, 20 Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies, 21 Envyings, murders, drunkenness, revellings, and such like: of the which I tell you before, as I have also told you in time past, that they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God.

(Rev 18:4 KJV) And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues. (Rev 18:5 KJV) For her sins have reached unto heaven, and God hath remembered her iniquities.

Mat 7:16 Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles? 17 Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit. 18 A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit.

Mat 7:19 Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire. 20 Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them. Mat 7:21 Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven.

(1 John 2:15 KJV) Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him. 16 For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world. 17 And the world passeth away, and the lust thereof: but he that doeth

“The Bible says that satan will come as an angel of light and his agents as ministers of righteousness. (11 Cor. I 1: 14) Be careful you are not deceived by the eloquent preachers and evangelists who can quote every verses of the Bible from Genesis to Revelation. They may be still agents of satan in disguise (11 Cor. I I: 14).” Not by their words, but by their actual deeds you can tell who they are…

Matthew 7 17 Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit.

18 A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit.

19 Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire.

Matthew 12 33 Either make the tree good, and his fruit good; or else make the tree corrupt, and his fruit corrupt: for the tree is known by his fruit.

Luke 3 24 Strive to enter in at the strait gate: for many, I say unto you, will seek to enter in, and shall not be able.25 When once the master of the house is risen up, and hath shut to the door, and ye begin to stand without, and to knock at the door, saying, Lord, Lord, open unto us; and he shall answer and say unto you, I know you not whence ye are:26 Then shall ye begin to say, We have eaten and drunk in thy presence, and thou hast taught in our streets.27 But he shall say, I tell you, I know you not whence ye are; depart from me, all ye workers of iniquity.28 There shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth, when ye shall see Abraham, and Isaac, and Jacob, and all the prophets, in the kingdom of God, and you yourselves thrust out.29 And they shall come from the east, and from the west, and from the north, and from the south, and shall sit down in the kingdom of God.30 And, behold, there are last which shall be first, and there are first which shall be last. . Luke 13 27 But he shall say, I tell you, I know you not whence ye are; depart from me, all ye workers of iniquity.

1 Corinthians 12 29 Are all apostles? are all prophets? are all teachers? are all workers of miracles?

2 Corinthians 6 1 We then, as workers together with him, beseech you also that ye receive not the grace of God in vain.

2 Corinthians 11 13 For such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into the apostles of Christ.

Philippians 3 2 Beware of dogs, beware of evil workers, beware of the concision.

Romans 2:18 And knowest his will, and approvest the things that are more excellent, being instructed out of the law;19 And art confident that thou thyself art a guide of the blind, a light of them which are in darkness,20 An instructor of the foolish, a teacher of babes, which hast the form of knowledge and of the truth in the law.21 Thou therefore which teachest another, teachest thou not thyself? thou that preachest a man should not steal, dost thou steal?22 Thou that sayest a man should not commit adultery, dost thou commit adultery? thou that abhorrest idols, dost thou commit sacrilege?23 Thou that makest thy boast of the law, through breaking the law dishonourest thou God? Apostasy in Christianity refers to the rejection of Christianity by someone who formerly was a Christian.

The term apostasy comes from the Greek word apostasia (“ἀποστασία”) meaning defection, departure, revolt or rebellion. It has been described as “a willful falling away from, or rebellion against Jesus Christ, Christianity.

Apostasy is the rejection of the teachings of Jesus Christ by one who has been a Christian… describing those who have voluntarily and consciously abandoned next their original faith in the God of the covenant, who manifests himself most completely in Jesus Christ.” “Apostasy is the antonym of conversion; it is deconversion.”

And it seems 50 percent of once loudly professing Christians will next become Apostates, sell Jesus cause they falsely did not get what they wanted, even wealth, power, fame, recognition, more sex…;

- With·drawn v. Past participle of withdraw. adj. 1. Not readily approached; remote. 2. a. Not friendly or sociable; aloof. b. Emotionally .

- Control freak It is a serious personality disorder and is a derogatory term for a person who attempts to dictate how everything around them is to be done. A draining person. People who feel out of control . Manipulators The control freaks are people who are falsely terrified of any failure. Perfectionists. They can not trust that anyone to do a better job than they will. a false belief that that if they can change another person’s undesirable behavior, then you both will be happier or more fulfilled. The Person who if not in control of many aspects even in other’s lives will go ballistic. This ensues telling, demanding, and a control freak likes to claim the successes of others as their own. These people obsessively try to dictate how you’re supposed to be and feel. They have an opinion about everything; disagree at your peril. Control freaks rarely know that they are one. They believe that they are helping people with their “constructive criticism” or taking over a project because “no one else will do it right.” They spout, dictate unsolicited advice and use anger often to put you in your place. You cannot tell them what to do.; .Express to them your right to be heard, and also to do things your way too.;

Some clear signs of the Control freaks for your -diagnosing pleasure.

1 They try to “help them” change by pointing it out, usually over and over.

2 They try micromanage others to make them fit their often unrealistic expectations. They can’t accept others imperfection they don’t think anyone else should either.

3 They continually judge others’ behavior as right or wrong and without love, passive-aggressively withhold attention, contact until they fall in line with their demands, expectations. Sitting in silent judgment an other form of control.

4 They offer “constructive criticism” as a veiled attempt to advance their own agenda.

5 Instead of just being themselves , they attempt to deceive others by projection of their false impression of them selves

6 Fear mongers, threateners and manipulators.

7 Know it all.

8 They intervene on behalf of others by trying to explain or dismiss their negative behaviors to others.

“Arguing with the control freak seldom works. Why? Because they are an expert at justifying to themselves and everyone else why they are right. They are world authorities in being “right”. They have spent whole lifetimes practicing “being right”. So trying to out-argue them can be nigh on impossible.”

Simply walk away – let them try rather to control others

Read the scriptures for you think that doing so you will gain eternal life, but many people now do read the Bible and never got eternal life, cause they omitted the spirit of Jesus Christ actual teachings and the Bible’s as well. Now had most fundamentals evangelicals actually read their Bibles, known the Bible instead of wrongfully listening to the so called Bible teachers, false preachers, bad teachers they would not have easily deceived to neglect the present full empowerment available of all believers by the Holy Spirit….

2 Tim 3:5 KJV Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away.

Hidden agendas, the world is full of it, many people have hidden agendas. some not too well hidden even. Sadly some people they tend present their own “facts,” but fall short in truthfulness for they tend to falsely have a hidden agenda, one of which is that often they want to get rich, and ?or live in the kingdom off self, to be falsely personally worshipped and still live in sin too.

It was Christ who said, “You will know them by their fruits.” And Christ went on to say, “Not everyone who says to me Lord, Lord.” shall even enter the kingdom of heaven next.”” Not everyone who says to me Lord, Lord, will enter into the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of my father who is in heaven.” Which includes manifesting the fruit of the holy Spirit.

2 Corinthians 4:7 But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellency of the power may be of God, and not of us.

Galatians 5:22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith,

Ephesians 5″:9 (For the fruit of the Spirit is in all goodness and righteousness and truth;)

I am the vine, you are the branches. If a man remains in Me and I in Him, he will bear much fruit; apart from Me you can do nothing. If anyone does not remain in Me, he is like a branch that is thrown away and withers; such branches are picked up, thrown into the fire and burned. John 15:5-6

All these false Bible Interpreters who try to take the holy Spirit’s role and teach you their views, they should already know they are going to hell.. True happiness cannot be in reality achieved without having a continual, personal relationship with Jesus here on earth and us continually knowing and following solely his will of our life too, instead of Idols. Why is Jesus God jealous of idols before us? well it means he is envious for our own good.. he strives for all things to be our good… What idols? what ever replaces God is an idol.. what ever you falsely worship as substitute for God. And it can be drugs, booze, sex, or your wife, son , daughter, a persons, car, self, even your church, your pastor, your denomination, your own doctrines, beliefs, your culture, nationality … for we all had or have a god shaped vacuum in our life.. but filling it with extremes or false substitutes, junk will never be acceptable to God. Never. If you still do have a God shaped vacuum that is unfilled, then no other things, no relationships or careers, goals, next will satisfy you, not even any personal, social, community relationships, acts.

Ostriches who do refuse to see the truth is not new.. Proverbs 9:8 Reprove not a scorner, lest he hate thee: rebuke a wise man, and he will love thee.

Proverbs 27: 5 Open rebuke is better than secret love.

Revelation 3: 19 As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten: be zealous therefore, and repent.

I too have noticed on many occasions when ever the truth is presented the false Christians, the bad other individuals tend to attack and call people names . a lie and slander, truth encouraged by the devil . You yourself are clearly a holy Spirit hater.. who lies about me and slanders me, judges me falsely, distorts the truth about me , a mere hypocrite.. your opinion is useless to me.. Look you ignoramus i I have loads of people agreeing with my same posts on many sites that you falsely challenge.. as they are not liars like you. for they are Holy Spirit filled persons.. Now face the reality and take the beam put of your own eye first and rightfully so..

Matthew 7 3 And why beholdest thou the mote that is in thy brother’s eye, but considerest not the beam that is in thine own eye?

4 Or how wilt thou say to thy brother, Let me pull out the mote out of thine eye; and, behold, a beam is in thine own eye?

5 Thou hypocrite, first cast out the beam out of thine own eye; and then shalt thou see clearly to cast out the mote out of thy brother’s eye.;

Some professing Christians still do face serious problems after accepting Jesus Christ into their lives because they live like occasional Christians. They live also for self today 2 Tim. 4:3-4 For the time will come when men will not put up with sound doctrine. Instead, to suit their own desires, they will gather around them a great number of teachers to say what their itching ears want to hear. They will turn their ears away from the truth and turn aside to myths. .

2 Peter 2:1 But there were also false prophets among the people, just as there will be false teachers among you. They will secretly introduce destructive heresies, even denying the sovereign Lord who bought them–bringing swift destruction on themselves. GRACE DOES NOT COVER UNCONFESSED SINS AND GRACE DOES NOT JUSTIFY UNREPENTED OF SINS.. IF YOU CONTINUE TO SIN WILLFULLY YOU ARE GOING TO HELL.. Jesus does not cover or excuse our unrepented of sins. … there are still negative consequences for them Galatians 6:7 Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap.

“The righteousness of Christ is not a cloak to cover unconfessed and unforsaken sin; it is a principle of life that “One sin unrepented of is enough to close the gates of heaven against you.. we do stumble, but we do not live a lifestyle of continual, unrepentant sin. We all do even need to seriously know, differentiate between how God now deals with the wicked, those persons deliberately disobedient to him, he God does not go along with them for sure . God’s grace of forgiveness even does not extend to everyone.. God is merciful, kind to them, but not all professing Christians now are righteous for sure as well. Unconfessed sins break down our faith, destroy our confidence in Christ, and rob us of A REAL RELATIONSHIP WITH HIM AND HIS HOLY SPIRIT.. Not to mention, unrepented sin can cause a whole flurry of spiritual problems in our lives, NEGATIVE CONSEQUENCES WHERE WE BECOME MNTALLY UNSTABLE AS WE START TO LIE TO OURSELVES AND FALSELY EVEN BELIVE OPUR OWN LIES… … Covering up, justifying or hiding sin in our hearts is the opposite of true Christinaity .

Proverbs 28:13, “He that covereth his sins shall not prosper: but whoso confesseth and forsaketh them shall have mercy.”

Psalms 38:3-8, “…Neither is there any rest in my bones because of my sin. For mine iniquities are gone over mine head: as a heavy burden they are too heavy for me. My wounds stink and are corrupt because of my foolishness. I am troubled; I am bowed down greatly; I go mourning all the day long. For my loins are filled with a loathsome disease: and there is no soundness in my flesh. I am feeble and sore broken: I have roared by reason of the disquietness of my heart.”

Many Christians simply say, “Lord, forgive me of all my sins”, but continue to hide and cover up sins from their past. Do you honestly think that God honors this behavior? I don’t think so. Let’s take a look at what King David said about hiding sin in our hearts:

Psalms 32:3, “When I refused to confess my sin, I was weak and miserable, and I groaned all day long.” (NLT)

King David knew the importance of making sure his heart was clean before the Lord; he even asked the Lord to search his heart and see if there be anything hidden that needed to be brought out into the open:

Psalms 139:23-24, “Search me, O God, and know my heart: try me, and know my thoughts: And see if there be any wicked way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting.”

The repentance of sin is a very important, but often overlooked part of the gospel. Jesus made it clear that repentance and remission of sin is a foundation that we cannot overlook…

Luke 24:47, “And that repentance and remission of sins should be preached in his name among all nations, beginning at Jerusalem.”

Matthew 3:6, “And were baptized of him in Jordan, confessing their sins.”

What does it mean to repent?

Acts 3:19, “Repent ye therefore, and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out, when the times of refreshing shall come from the presence of the Lord.”

If we look up the word repent in the above verse in NT Greek, we find the word metanoeo, which translates to:

“To think differently or afterwards, that is, reconsider (morally to feel compunction)”

To repent means to turn from or change your mind about something. We need to change our mind about our sin and forsake it. We need to confess it as sin, and ask God’s forgiveness for our failure, and we will be forgiven. God’s Word promises that when we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us of whatever we’ve done that was wrong. In other words, regardless of what you’ve done, if you will give it to the Lord, confess and forsake it, you can receive mercy.

1 John 1:9, “If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.”

What happens when we repent?

God loves us more deeply than I think we’ll ever know, but He hates our sin with a passion. That’s why He sent Jesus to die for us, so that our sin could be removed. Sin forms a wall between man and God, even in a believer’s life. The Blood of Jesus is the only thing capable of removing such a wall. When we repent (confess and forsake our sin), it opens the flood-gates to receive our heavenly Father’s rich blessings and goodness in our lives!

Psalms 32:5-8, “Finally, I confessed all my sins to you and stopped trying to hide them. I said to myself, ‘I will confess my rebellion to the Lord.’ And you forgave me! All my guilt is gone. Therefore, let all the godly confess their rebellion to you while there is time, that they may not drown in the floodwaters of judgment. For you are my hiding place; you protect me from trouble.You surround me with songs of victory. The Lord says, “I will guide you along the best pathway for your life. I will advise you and watch over you.” (NLT)

Few stories in the Bible give us a clearer picture of God’s attitude towards us when we repent and turn back to Him, than the story of the Prodigal’s Son:

(Isa 48:22 KJV) There is no peace, saith the LORD, unto the wicked.

(Isa 55:7 KJV) Let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts: and let him return unto the LORD, and he will have mercy upon him; and to our God, for he will abundantly pardon.

(Isa 57:20 KJV) But the wicked are like the troubled sea, when it cannot rest, whose waters cast up mire and dirt.

(Isa 57:21 KJV) There is no peace, saith my God, to the wicked.

(Jer 5:28 KJV) They are waxen fat, they shine: yea, they overpass the deeds of the wicked: they judge not the cause, the cause of the fatherless, yet they prosper; and the right of the needy do they not judge.

(Jer 6:29 KJV) The bellows are burned, the lead is consumed of the fire; the founder melteth in vain: for the wicked are not plucked away.

(Jer 23:19 KJV) Behold, a whirlwind of the LORD is gone forth in fury, even a grievous whirlwind: it shall fall grievously upon the head of the wicked.

(Ezek 3:18 KJV) When I say unto the wicked, Thou shalt surely die; and thou givest him not warning, nor speakest to warn the wicked from his wicked way, to save his life; the same wicked man shall die in his iniquity; but his blood will I require at thine hand.

(Ezek 3:19 KJV) Yet if thou warn the wicked, and he turn not from his wickedness, nor from his wicked way, he shall die in his iniquity; but thou hast delivered thy soul.

(Ezek 18:23 KJV) Have I any pleasure at all that the wicked should die? saith the Lord GOD: and not that he should return from his ways, and live?

(Ezek 18:24 KJV) But when the righteous turneth away from his righteousness, and committeth iniquity, and doeth according to all the abominations that the wicked man doeth, shall he live? All his righteousness that he hath done shall not be mentioned: in his trespass that he hath trespassed, and in his sin that he hath sinned, in them shall he die.

(Ezek 18:27 KJV) Again, when the wicked man turneth away from his wickedness that he hath committed, and doeth that which is lawful and right, he shall save his soul alive.

(Ezek 21:3 KJV) And say to the land of Israel, Thus saith the LORD; Behold, I am against thee, and will draw forth my sword out of his sheath, and will cut off from thee the righteous and the wicked.

(Ezek 33:12 KJV) Therefore, thou son of man, say unto the children of thy people, The righteousness of the righteous shall not deliver him in the day of his transgression: as for the wickedness of the wicked, he shall not fall thereby in the day that he turneth from his wickedness; neither shall the righteous be able to live for his righteousness in the day that he sinneth.

(Dan 12:10 KJV) Many shall be purified, and made white, and tried; but the wicked shall do wickedly: and none of the wicked shall understand; but the wise shall understand.

(Nahum 1:3 KJV) The LORD is slow to anger, and great in power, and will not at all acquit the wicked: the LORD hath his way in the whirlwind and in the storm, and the clouds are the dust of his feet.

(Nahum 1:15 KJV) Behold upon the mountains the feet of him that bringeth good tidings, that publisheth peace! O Judah, keep thy solemn feasts, perform thy vows: for the wicked shall no more pass through thee; he is utterly cut off.

Matthew 3 10 And now also the axe is laid unto the root of the trees: therefore every tree which bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire.

Matthew 7 17 Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit.

18 A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit.

19 Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire.

Matthew 12 33 Either make the tree good, and his fruit good; or else make the tree corrupt, and his fruit corrupt: for the tree is known by his fruit.

Luke 3 9 And now also the axe is laid unto the root of the trees: every tree therefore which bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire.

Luke 6 43 For a good tree bringeth not forth corrupt fruit; neither doth a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit.

Matthew 3 8 Bring forth therefore fruits meet for repentance:

Matthew 9 for I am not come to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance.

Mark 1 4 John did baptize in the wilderness, and preach the baptism of repentance for the remission of sins.

Mark 2 17 When Jesus heard it, he saith unto them, They that are whole have no need of the physician, but they that are sick: I came not to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance.

Luke 3 3 And he came into all the country about Jordan, preaching the baptism of repentance for the remission of sins;

2 Corinthians 6 17 Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you,

in reality Your Name Can Be Blotted Out of the Book of Life.
In Revelation 3:5 Jesus speaks of some people getting their names blotted out of the book of life. He says those that overcome will not be blotted out. This was written to church people–people who believed on Jesus. Now you are going to Hell if you teach Heresies and not God’s truths. The Bible says rather you should reprove heresies and if the people do not repent, then reject them. (Titus 3:10) and said, “If anyone preaches any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed.” (Galatians 1:8) And in Galatians 5:19-21 Paul also says, “they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God.” It is obviously a serious matter for you to deny the truth and teach heresies. Remember “heresy” means: Any belief different from or contrary to what is taught in the Holy Bible. When people teach heresies, they are in effect going after another god. You have a free will to reject God and his truth anytime.. in fact if you are doing that now that is why you too are going to hell..

The New Testament does not give you a license to sin. In Matthew 5:20 Jesus said, “Your righteousness must exceed what was taught in the Old Testament.” Jesus quoted several Old Testament commandments and proceeded to make them even stricter for New Testament Christians. New Testament believers are held to a higher standard than Old Testament believers. If God did not accept the unrepentant backsliders then, he will not accept them now either because we are expected to do better than the Old Testament saints. Luke 12:48 says, “For unto whomsoever much is given, of him shall be much required: and to whom men have committed much, of him they will ask the more.” St. John 8:30-32 “As he spoke these words, many believed on him. Then said Jesus to those Jews which believed on him, If you continue in my word, then are you my disciples indeed; And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.”

This was a wonderful little moment when people began to believe on Jesus AS JESUS ALSO he told them they needed to do something-“continue in my word”- and be made free from sin to be his disciples. “Continue in my word” means continue to believe and to obey the word or commandments. To be a disciple is to be saved. If you are no longer a disciple of Jesus but of the devil, you are not a Christian. The Holy Spirit has left too.. Now quote the Bible all you want but if Jesus is not there with you then you are still in Hell and going to hell..

God Has A Question For You. Ezekiel 18:24 24. But when the righteous turneth away from his righteousness, and committeth iniquity, and doeth according to all the abominations that the wicked man doeth, shall he live?. . .

The question above is: If a person turns away from righteousness and goes back to his sin, shall he live? Here is the true answer. Ezekiel 18:24-26 . . . All his righteousness that he hath done shall not be mentioned: (or remembered) in his trespass that he hath trespassed, and in his sin that he hath sinned, in them shall he die. 25. Yet ye say, The way of the Lord is not equal. Hear now, O house of Israel; Is not my way equal? are not your ways unequal? 26. When a righteous man turneth away from his righteousness, and committeth iniquity, and dieth in them; for his iniquity that he hath done shall he die.

Hebrews 10:26-31 26. For if we sin wilfully after that we have received the knowledge of the truth, there remaineth no more sacrifice for sins, 27. But a certain fearful looking for of judgment and fiery indignation, which shall devour the adversaries. 28. He that despised Moses’ law died without mercy under two or three witnesses: 29. Of how much sorer punishment (worse punishment), suppose ye, shall he be thought worthy, who hath trodden under foot the Son of God, and hath counted the blood of the covenant, wherewith he was sanctified, an unholy thing, and hath done despite unto the Spirit of grace? 30. For we know him that hath said, Vengeance belongeth unto me, I will recompense, saith the Lord. And again, The Lord shall judge his people. 31. It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God.

You have a free will to reject God and his truth anytime.. in fact you are doing that now and that is why you too are going to hell.. The New Testament does not give you a license to sin. In Matthew 5:20 Jesus said, “Your righteousness must exceed what was taught in the Old Testament.” Jesus quoted several Old Testament commandments and proceeded to make them even stricter for New Testament Christians. New Testament believers are held to a higher standard than Old Testament believers. If God did not accept the unrepentant backsliders then, he will not accept them now either because we are expected to do better than the Old Testament saints. Luke 12:48 says, “For unto whomsoever much is given, of him shall be much required: and to whom men have committed much, of him they will ask the more.” St. John 8:30-32 “As he spoke these words, many believed on him. Then said Jesus to those Jews which believed on him, If you continue in my word, then are you my disciples indeed; And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.”

This was a wonderful little moment when people began to believe on Jesus. According to the eternal security heresy, Jesus should have told them, “Well boys, now you got it, you have believed on me so now you don’t have to do anything else. Don’t bother with continuing in my word because it doesn’t matter what you do or how much sin you commit–you have eternal security!” But Jesus didn’t tell them that, he told them they needed to do something-“continue in my word”- and be made free from sin to be his disciples. “Continue in my word” means continue to believe and to obey the word or commandments. To be a disciple is to be saved. If you are no longer a disciple of Jesus but of the devil, you are not a Christian. The Holy Spirit has left too..

Eternal security: the false belief that once a person accepts Jesus Christ as his Savior, he can never be lost. Eternal security sounds great until you realize that this doctrine falsely allows people to commit every sin under the sun without suffering any consequences for their complete lack of holy living. But in reality Your Name Can Be Blotted Out of the Book of Life.

In Revelation 3:5 Jesus speaks of some people getting their names blotted out of the book of life. He says those that overcome will not be blotted out. This was written to church people–people who believed on Jesus. Like I said you are going to Hell cause you teach Heresies not God’s truths. The bible says you should reprove heresies and if the people do not repent, then reject them. (Titus 3:10) and said, “If anyone preaches any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed.” (Galatians 1:8) And in Galatians 5:19-21 Paul also says, “they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God.” It is obviously a serious matter for you to deny the truth and teach heresies. Remember “heresy” means: Any belief different from or contrary to what is taught in the Holy Bible. When people teach heresies, they are in effect going after another god

The once-saved-always-saved folks will also tell you that Ananias and Sapphira died saved, but again, what does the Bible say:

•”But a certain man named Ananias, with Sapphira his wife, sold a possession, And kept back part of the price, his wife also being privy to it, and brought a certain part, and laid it at the apostles’ feet. But Peter said, Ananias, why hath Satan filled thine heart to lie to the Holy Ghost, and to keep back part of the price of the land? Whiles it remained, was it not thine own? and after it was sold, was it not in thine own power? why hast thou conceived this thing in thine heart? thou hast not lied unto men, but unto God. And Ananias hearing these words fell down, and gave up the ghost: and great fear came on all them that heard these things. And the young men arose, wound him up, and carried him out, and buried him. And it was about the space of three hours after, when his wife, not knowing what was done, came in. And Peter answered unto her, Tell me whether ye sold the land for so much? And she said, Yea, for so much. Then Peter said unto her, How is it that ye have agreed together to tempt the Spirit of the Lord? behold, the feet of them which have buried thy husband [are] at the door, and shall carry thee out. Then fell she down straightway at his feet, and yielded up the ghost: and the young men came in, and found her dead, and, carrying [her] forth, buried [her] by her husband” (Acts 5:1-10).

These two people were liars, and what does the Bible say about liars? In Revelation 21:8, it says, “But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.”

Holy Spirit led, filled Christians

 x211_n

Pentecostalism or Classical Pentecostalism believe that all Real Christians are Pentecostals or Charismatics and  is a renewal movement within Christianity that places special emphasis on a direct personal experience of God through the  Lordship of Jesus Christ, baptism with the Holy Spirit leading to Holy Spirit–filled and empowered life as well as biblical authority, and the miraculous, personal empowerment which includes the use of spiritual gifts. Pentecostals tend to also see their movement as reflecting the same kind of spiritual power and teachings that were found in the Apostolic Age of the early church. For this reason, some Pentecostals also use the term Apostolic or full gospel to describe their movement. Real Pentecostals do practice and  believe and in an authentic relationship with God, the Holy Spirit, Jesus Christ, the Trinity, stemming from simple conversation with them through prayers and even fasting. They tend to believe a Christian can both be demon possessed and can  lose their personal Salvation as well. They tend to put a greater emphasis on prayer over Bible reading,  and thus can still even have some personal errors.. Pentecostalism as a whole now even follows four core doctrines: salvation, divine healing, baptism of the Holy Spirit, and the second coming of Christ as well as a Mission to others. These missions include to evangelize the lost,  the praise and worship of God,  to teach and disciple believers, and to show practical, real compassion to the poor and needy.  Some Pentecostals groups still falsely   teach and demand tithing. Others now falsely allow divorce. Many Pentecostals also put emphasis on the latter rain outpouring, Believing that we all were living in the end times, they expect God to presently spiritually renew the Christian Church bringing to pass not only the restoration of spiritual gifts, but also the evangelization of the whole world by the re-establishment and the mutual submission of the offices of Apostles, Prophets, Pastors teachers, evangelists. It should be noted some Pastors falsely  object to their submission to others. 

The Pentecostals do now differ very significantly from the other main Christian Denominations including the Mennonites, Brethren, Baptists, Catholics, Anglican, Presbyterian for they preach the whole or full Gospel of Jesus Christ; Jesus  as Savior, Healer, Deliverer, Provider, coming King, Baptizer of the Holy Ghosts, Sanctifier, Giver of gifts too… and yet this denomination basically is not more spiritual over the others, mainly because the leadership has watered down the requirements of what it takes to be a Christian, a church member .. apparently you can often buy a membership by tithing, giving ten percent of your income to the local church..   While there are many similar evidently aspects of the Pentecostals such as the main emphasis on not only Jesus, His salvation, forgiveness but also on the Holy sprit, leading , gifts, empowering each local Church tends to differ, some seriously even depart from the faith in reality, have accepted falsehoods, lies, distortions into their midst, doctrines like many other denominations now too. I do deal with some of these issues too.

IT IS ONE OF THE GREATEST LIES OF THE DEVIL, MYTHS THAT ONE CAN BE A CHRISTIAN OR THAT SELF RIGHTEOUSNESS, EVEN HOLINESS CAN BE ACHIEVED WITHOUT THE FILLING OF THE HOLY SPIRIT 

Acts 8:14 Now when the apostles which were at Jerusalem heard that Samaria had received the word of God, they sent unto them Peter and John: 15 Who, when they were come down, prayed for them, that they might receive th…e Holy Ghost:16 (For as yet he was fallen upon none of them: only they were baptized in the name of the Lord Jesus.)17 Then laid they their hands on them, and they received the Holy Ghost. as a result of the anointing of of the Holy Spirit ( Acts 10:38) and you will reflect, be more and more conformed to the image of Christ (Romans 12:2; 2 Corinthians 3:18). Your prayer life and study of God’s Word will become more meaningful. You will experience His power in witnessing (Acts 1:8). You will be prepared for spiritual conflict against the world (1 John 2:15-17); against the flesh (Galatians 5:16-17); and against Satan (1 Peter 5:7-9; Ephesians 6:10-13). You will experience His power to resist temptation and sin (1 Corinthians 10:13; Philippians 4:13; Ephesians 1:19-23; 2 Timothy 1:7; Romans 6:1-16).    Acts 10:38 38 How God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Ghost and with power: who went about doing good, and healing all that were oppressed of the devil; for God was with him. Romans 8:9 But ye are not in the flesh, but in the Spirit, if so be that the Spirit of God dwell in you. Now if any man have not the Spirit of Christ, he is none of his. The Holy Christian life is personally… impossible, it is impossible without the Holy Spirit –on our own. Trying to live the Christian life by your own efforts is like a ship trying to sail on dry land… Ephesians 5: 1 Be ye therefore followers of God, as dear children; 2 And walk in love, as Christ also hath loved us, and hath given himself for us an offering and a sacrifice to God for a sweetsmelling savour. 3 But fornication, and all uncleanness, or covetousness, let it not be once named among you, as becometh saints; 4 Neither filthiness, nor foolish talking, nor jesting, which are not convenient: but rather giving of thanks. 5 For this ye know, that no whoremonger, nor unclean person, nor covetous man, who is an idolater, hath any inheritance in the kingdom of Christ and of God. 6 Let no man deceive you with vain words: for because of these things cometh the wrath of God upon the children of disobedience. 7 Be not ye therefore partakers with them. 8 For ye were sometimes darkness, but now are ye light in the Lord: walk as children of light: 9 (For the fruit of the Spirit is in all goodness and righteousness and truth;) 10 Proving what is acceptable unto the Lord. 11 And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them. 12 For it is a shame even to speak of those things which are done of them in secret. 13 But all things that are reproved are made manifest by the light: for whatsoever doth make manifest is light. 14 Wherefore he saith, Awake thou that sleepest, and arise from the dead, and Christ shall give thee light. 15 See then that ye walk circumspectly, not as fools, but as wise, 16 Redeeming the time, because the days are evil. 17 Wherefore be ye not unwise, but understanding what the will of the Lord is. 18 And be not drunk with wine, wherein is excess; but be filled with the Spirit; 19 Speaking to yourselves in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody in your heart to the Lord; 20 Giving thanks always for all things unto God and the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ; 21 Submitting yourselves one to another in the fear of God. 22 Wives, submit yourselves unto your own husbands, as unto the Lord. 23 For the husband is the head of the wife, even as Christ is the head of the church: and he is the saviour of the body. 24 Therefore as the church is subject unto Christ, so let the wives be to their own husbands in every thing. 25 Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave himself for it; 26 That he might sanctify and cleanse it with the washing of water by the word, 27 That he might present it to himself a glorious church, not having spot, or wrinkle, or any such thing; but that it should be holy and without blemish. 28 So ought men to love their wives as their own bodies. He that loveth his wife loveth himself. 29 For no man ever yet hated his own flesh; but nourisheth and cherisheth it, even as the Lord the church: 30 For we are members of his body, of his flesh, and of his bones. 31 For this cause shall a man leave his father and mother, and shall be joined unto his wife, and they two shall be one flesh. 32 This is a great mystery: but I speak concerning Christ and the church. 33 Nevertheless let every one of you in particular so love his wife even as himself; and the wife see that she reverence her husband.    Hebrews 11:4 By faith Abel offered unto God a more excellent sacrifice than Cain, by which he obtained witness that he was righteous, God testifying of his gifts: and by it he being dead yet speaketh.   1 John 3:12 Not as Cain, who was of that wicked one, and slew his brother. And wherefore slew he him? Because his own works were evil, and his brother’s righteous.   Jude 1:11 Woe unto them! for they have gone in the way of Cain, and ran greedily after the error of Balaam for reward, and perished in the gainsaying of Core.   

One of the biggest tragedy of Christianity is that many professing Christians are falsely trying to make themselves look good, better over others by doing their own thing, earning their way to heaven in the same way that Cain had falsely refused to do what God had told him..   As a real Christian you are Holy Spirit filled Christian and taught lead by the Holy Spirit or you are a carnal Christian or an unchristian, a natural man and thus you do still hold mostly false Biblical insights. and it will clearly show as to who you are by what you believe in, but what you say and also but also with whom you do associate with..    There are not a multiple optional possibility of beliefs or of truths in God Kingdoms You are Holy Spirit filled or are led by the devil.. as simple as that   Carnal Christians are so close to being unbelievers that they are almost indistinguishable from them. Likely will go to hell with them next too. Such Christians are characterized by apathy, division, ongoing strife and a very low EQ! Carnal Christians “bite and devour one another” (Galatians 5:15)   “And I brethren, could not speak to you as to spiritual men, but as to carnal men, as to babes in Christ. I gave you milk to drink, not solid food; for you were not yet able to receive it. Indeed, even now you are not yet able, for you are still carnal. For since there is jealousy and strife among you, are you not fleshy, and are you not walking like mere men?”   It is the Holy Spirit who renews, transforms, redeems our perceptions, beliefs, emotions, and physical bodies and who gives us the wisdom, discernments, insights. as “I have been crucified with Christ: and I myself no longer live, but Christ lives in me. And the real life I now have within this body is a result of my trusting in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me” (Galatians 2:20).   1 Thessalonians 4:    1 Furthermore then we beseech you, brethren, and exhort you by the Lord Jesus, that as ye have received of us how ye ought to walk and to please God, so ye would abound more and more.   2 For ye know what commandments we gave you by the Lord Jesus.   3 For this is the will of God, even your sanctification, that ye should abstain from fornication:   4 That every one of you should know how to possess his vessel in sanctification and honour;   5 Not in the lust of concupiscence, even as the Gentiles which know not God:   6 That no man go beyond and defraud his brother in any matter: because that the Lord is the avenger of all such, as we also have forewarned you and testified.   7 For God hath not called us unto uncleanness, but unto holiness.   8 He therefore that despiseth, despiseth not man, but God, who hath also given unto us his holy Spirit.   9 But as touching brotherly love ye need not that I write unto you: for ye yourselves are taught of God to love one another.  Why aren’t more Christians filled with the Spirit? Simply because of their unsubmitted, unconfessed sin. We thus do still choose to disobey God. This can take the form of pride: doing and wanting things our way. Living a self centered life, and We don’t give God control of our finances; we’ve worked hard for our money and it’s ours now. We don’t give God control of our relationships, associates, choices too;. We don’t give God control of our personal morality; that’s nobody’s business but our own—not even God’s. (Proverbs 3:34). [God] mocks proud mockers but gives grace to the humble” Proverbs 29: 23 A man’s pride shall bring him low: but honour shall uphold the humble in spirit.24 Whoso is partner with a thief hateth his own soul: he heareth cursing, and bewrayeth it not. 25 The fear of man bringeth a snare: but whoso putteth his trust in the LORD shall be safe. 26 Many seek the ruler’s favour; but every man’s judgment cometh from the LORD. 27 An unjust man is an abomination to the just: and he that is upright in the way is abomination to the wicked. Or the “Fear of man will prove to be our snare…” (Proverbs 29:25). Is there something that God wants you to do, but you haven’t done it because you’re afraid of what people will think?    Generally non-believers, non Christians are clearly still totally ignorant the work of the Holy Spirit.   (1 Corinthians 3:1-3). “A natural man does not accept the things of the Spirit of God; for they are foolishness to him, and he cannot understand them, because they are spiritually appraised” (1 Corinthians 2:14). But “He who is spiritual appraises all things…We have the mind of Christ” (1 Corinthians 2:15).  see also  To be Baptized with the Holy Spirit first you must be a true Christian, a true follower of Jesus Christ  “Yet now hear, O Jacob my servant; and Israel, whom I have chosen: Thus saith the Lord that made thee, and formed thee from the womb, which will help thee; Fear not, O Jacob, my servant; and thou, Jesurun, (the upright one) whom I have chosen. For I will pour water upon him that is thirsty and floods upon the dry ground: I will pour my spirit upon thy seed, and my blessing upon thine offspring: And they shall spring up as among the grass, as willows by the water courses.” (Isa. 44:1-4)  (Psa 37:9 KJV) For evildoers shall be cut off: but those that wait upon the LORD, they shall inherit the earth.  (Psa 37:10 KJV) For yet a little while, and the wicked shall not be: yea, thou shalt diligently consider his place, and it shall not be.  (Psa 37:11 KJV) But the meek shall inherit the earth; and shall delight themselves in the abundance of peace.  BEING RELGIOUS AND/OR KNOWING THE BIBLE IS NOT THE SAME AS KNOWING PERSONALY GOD, JESUS CHRIST, THE HOLY SPIRIT.. GOD, JESUS CHRIST, THE HOLY SPIRIT, all do love you and they had created you to know them personally-here was a basic, truthful fact – you must know, remember and share with others too. God the father, Jesus Christ, and the Holy Spirit are all alive, real, individuals who care about you personally too and desire now to fellowship with you too if you do now meet their requirements, conditions as stated in the New Testament. Or are you falsely still relying in your own flesh in following Jesus Christ, God, the Holy Spirit? … Did you know that the Bible teaches us that human nature will always deny Jesus Christ. We all first must come personally to Jesus Christ in order to receive the baptism of Holy Spirit as well.. Now without the Holy Spirit of Jesus in your life, heart, you can only know, experience, darkness, demons and not God. Our boldness comes from being with Jesus, the Holy Spirit and our knowledge, application of God’s word.

We can’t change one thing about ourselves or others without the SPIRIT of GOD. (Luke 4:1 KJV) And Jesus being full of the Holy Ghost returned from Jordan, and was led by the Spirit into the wilderness, (Rom 8:14 KJV) For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God. GOD is still looking for the caring, loving spirit filled people who have made the LORD JESUS CHRIST only and not others as their Hope and Confidence. GOD now wants to get down to the heart of things and make you as Free as you can be, so you can just fully enjoy being His Child. Lift up your head for the Kingdom of God will come upon you too, if you seek Him, and you will next see more of God’s SPIRIT on display than ever before. You will also personally Rejoice in what God’s promised for His Church, and you will with joy also now know that you’re on your way up being lifted up in Him too.  GOD still does have something bigger for each one of us he has planned for us more than we have even imagined. He by his Holy Spirit is fueling and leading us the whole way. GOD is decking us out with His Garments, garments of holiness, power, and praise included, and He is also calling us to personally move into His own places of Authority here on earth.

This Hand of GOD is lifting us up and giving us the Passion that also His SON had, has. This Anointed Holy Spirit Hand of GOD is also bringing his Favor and releasing us to His Kingdom best. GOD now still wants to be every bit a living part of our lives as we daily do His. GOD can show us more as to what it takes to know Him on a one on one basis, to know him more, and to make His Name Great in the earth. With God’s supplied Power and Passion in the Holy Spirit we can turn around many things for His glory, and we will be right in the center where GOD wants us all the time to be, and not only to receive but to pour out as well. Yes it is really true that GOD wants to fill your cup with his Holy Spirit and to make you also an important somebody in His Kingdom filled with praise, love, humbleness and power too. Any genuine revival of the Holy Spirit is a personal one firstly.. it is to affects us personally first. Then we can share it with those around us and those abroad. The HOLY GHOST brings our personal Restoration to God, He can bring it to the whole Church as well and get It up into God’s Will. He will also take those persons going through trials and prepare them for a personal, individual Ministry, for He Enables those who have now been Called, and he can get us all working in His Order, and Fills us with Joy and Settle us individually and solidly in JESUS.

The Holy Spirit Anointing Calls us into our own ministry, service and he Challenges us to give up our life as we know it, it as more than going from childhood into adulthood, for it Announces God’s Favor, Increases our Awareness of the Spirit’s Work, Bridges gaps between God and man and ir makes many things right, and as well he gives us More of JESUS. We thus will be are Refreshed in His Presence, we will feel more Strongly about the Things of GOD, God’s Will will be made clearer to us, and our useless, old worries are Removed In Christ by His Holy Spirit we have a New enabled Mission, Ministry, Service for we not only take on a New Nature, but we are being continually Led, Fed by Him as well The Outpouring of the HOLY SPIRIT while it often is still unpredictable, it is always in His time, and it is the beginning and also summation of our Faith in the Hand of the LORD to take his own direct actions here on earth, it is God’s Person on Display, it also is something New everyday, and it can make everybody who receives it Happy, in the World To Come in the here and now too… with even abundant Joy. Seek Him, find him, take hold of Him, and above all keep him at all costs.. and all available now to us freely through Jesus Christ, to him be all the glory, the majesty always. GOD wants to set you apart. He wants you to have His Passion for everything. GOD is on the move in the earth today and He needs, uses the people full of His HOLY SPIRIT.

 So do Take a deep breath and breathe in the Presence of the Almighty… by His outpouring of His Holy Spirit.. We have to develop a deeper thirst for HIM as well so we can personally see experience, more of this Glory. We also have to die to self, renounce self, our own lives of this to happen as well.  We all do still have to by Faith personally accept everything God has promised, had given us and by faith to fully walk in His Kingdom Authority, and we have to keep ourselves built up in the faith, in the power of the Holy Spirit, in the life of the Lord Jesus Christ, to keep on going after GOD. It is a really sad fact that too many professing Christians who claim they love God, Jesus Christ, the Holy Spirit, in reality they are still not filled with the Holy Spirit even cause they have rejected the fullness of the Holy Spirit, and his gifts being applicable today, they now falsely have limited the Gospel as being Jesus the Savior only and they wrongfully do not teach the full Gospel of Jesus the Christ now as well…. and they falsely emphasize falsely even keeping all of the old Testament commandments of God, basically in one’s own strength, and the necessary usage of Greek and heeding to the teaching of mere men, such as Darby, Scofield, over the Holy Spirit teaching us directly.. and those amongst them who do this they all basically do not have the Holy Spirit, are actually deceived, are now none of His.. They thus really are still unsaved thus.  If we follow after God we will be filled with the Holy Spirit and continually live by the Holy Spirit doing all things by the Spirit and not at all by the flesh. . Eph 5:18 And be not drunk with wine wherein is excess but be filled with the Holy Spirit…

The false death of the Full Gospel in North america

Now is this all true?
.
” SO WHEN AND WHY DID FULL GOSPEL DIE IN NORTH AMERICA?
Proverbs 14:34 Righteousness exalts a nation, But sin is a reproach to any people.
Proverbs 18:3 When the wicked comes, contempt comes also; And with dishonor comes reproach.
.  
IN MY BOOK NOT INNOCENT I WROTE
Also, on Monday morning, May 20, 1996, I heard on the radio a company had reprinted a 1987 advertisement in the newspapers mocking Jim and Tammy Bakker and Jimmy Swaggart. To me this is not a coincidence that many are now waking up to the fact that a very small religious, arrogant and hypocritical denomination—The Assembly of God, produced the three Musketeers: Bakker (1987), Swaggart (1988), and Strader (1989). Together, these so called men of God have robbed, raped and even murdered the defenseless elderly people in their communities and affected many lives across America.
.
    SO BAKKER, SWAGGART AND STRADER THROUGH THEIR SIN BROUGHT REPROACH TO THE FULL GOSPEL MESSAGE AND CAUSED MANY PEOPLE TO TURN AWAY FROM IT
.
  It would be wrong to generalize and to associate all pastors or evangelists with these troublemakers. Nevertheless, we had personally written randomly to over two hundred and fifty evangelists and pastors in America concerning the Strader Affair and not one offered to help us in anyway. But some were very keen to criticize and say awful and nasty things about us without verifying the truth. However, we wrote to secular people and they were more than happy to help and assist us in anyway that they could. Ironic, isn’t it?
.
   Many of these pastors and evangelists live and behave like kings of their own kingdoms, rather than like servants of the living God, as they should be. Humility and submission are words they must reintroduce into their own vocabulary and lives before they teach others.
.
   Contrary to many pastors’ and evangelists’ point of view, we as Christians don’t exist primarily to serve them or to give them money but to serve the King of kings and Lord or lords. In our Heavenly Father’s eyes, we are all equally important. He has no favorites and is definitely not a respecter of persons -although, some pastors and evangelists would like us to believe otherwise.
.
   We have over us only one King and His Name is Jesus. We are all bondservants to each other in the body of Christ, not just in words but in deeds. Pastors and evangelists are not and never were meant to be kings over us or over anyone else for the matter. They are there to serve us and not we to serve themselves.
.
    We have learned something interesting about many Pastors, Preachers, Superintendents, and Evangelists in America? They want everybody to believe and listen to their words but they will not believe and listen to the words of others. All of this shows typical double standards and hypocrisy of religionists or Pharisees of our day and of the day that existed when Jesus walked among them as a man.
.
   The money that flows through Carpenter’s Home Church and the Assembly of God denomination, as well as other denominations in America and is not openly accounted for, is in the hundreds of millions of dollars per year, and offers religious politicians and unscrupulous scoundrels a gold mine or “cash cow” as Roy called it. Some of the things that go on in AG (Assembly of God) CHC (Carpenter’s Home Church) and Baptist Christians make the soap operas on television appear mild in comparison.
.
   More money is embezzled from the church each year ($16 billion) than is given to foreign missions ($15 billion) reported the newly published second edition of the World Christian Encyclopedia. The exhaustive survey of global Christianity contains some good news. It notes that Christianity has become “the most extensive and universal religion in history,” with some 2 billion adherents—one in three of the world’s population—at the start of the new millennium.
.
   The last century has also seen a huge shift in the racial makeup of believers globally, from 81 percent white in 1900 to 55 percent non-white last year. The charismatic renewal has also been a major influence in the last 100 years, with 520 million current members of Pentecostal and charismatic denominations and movements. Almost 800 million people have been touched by the Spirit since 1900.
.
    But the fine print of the massive publication also contains some disturbing information. Among the startling findings of the research team is that:     More money is embezzled from the church each year ($16 billion) than is given to foreign missions ($15 billion).
.
    Because of the separation of the church and state in the American Constitution, the American Evangelical religious leaders such as Bill Bright, Jerry Falwell, Pat Robertson, Charles Stanley, Louis Paula and Billy and Franklin Graham have a field day in stealing money from the sheep in the name of the one who would never do such a thing. They have developed an art in legally being wolves in sheep’s clothing that is not allowed in Canada, England or other industrial educated countries. For there is no one to police American TV Evangelists who are usually of Baptist or Pentecostal backgrounds and have no open integrity when it comes to money.
.
   It is a fact that none of the prominent evangelical leaders in America reveal their total compensation to their donors. The selfishness and greed of these Evangelical Christians who have done things that others, who are not religious would think twice to do. This is what this book is all about – the selfishness, greed and corruption of so-called Christian leaders in America today.
  .
  In United States, in the last few years, many evangelical churches and religious organizations have gotten together because of a religious scandal in Texas, involving Larry Lea of On the Rock Church, W. A. Grant and Robert Tilton of Dallas. The television media brought it out, and while others such as Dr. Billy Graham who was most hurt by it formed an organization called Evangelical Council of Financial Accountability insisting accountability and financial responsibility in religious organizations so there would be no cause for offense in anything or needless loss of money. Apostle Paul wrote:     We give no offense in anything, that our ministry may not be blamed. (2 Corinthians 6:3)     Avoiding this: that anyone should blame us in this lavish gift which is administered by us. (2 Corinthians 8:20)
.
   Christian Religionists, Evangelicals, Baptists, Charismatic and Pentecostals, all teach, that as stewards of God, everything we have belongs to Him and it is very important that we provide:    “Honorable things, not only in the sight of the Lord, but also in the sight of men.” (2 Corinthians 8:21)
.   Yet, very few churches and religious organizations, who although they state they believe the bible and the importance to provide “honorable things,” most of them don’t belong to an organization that practices financial responsibility and open accountability.

.

 Is Jim Bakker A Hero? Ephesians 5:11 Even now Jim Bakker just doesn’t want to stay out of the public limelight. He presided as the king over one of the most corrupt television ministries of the past two decades. A successful televangelism group run by Jim and Tammy Bakker is a testimony that Evangelical pastors sold their own souls just to make their wallets thicker, when they were supposed to bring God to the people. As a result Jim Bakker and his sidekick Richard Dortch ended up in prison accused of sexual immorality, tax evasion, and racketeering. The wave of corruption not only affected other televangelists such as Jimmy Swaggart, but also showed a dark, dirty fight for the control of PTL among several other prominent televangelists.

Felon Richard Dortch, senior vice-president of PTL and associate pastor of Heritage Village Church, said pride, arrogance and secrets led to the PTL scandal. While most people never face temptations on the same scale, the ingredients for seemingly smaller failures are the same, he said. Dortch said the men in PTL’s leadership felt they were above accountability. They felt specially called by God and accountable only to Him. He said they didn’t plan the scandal; instead, it was the natural result of living for oneself, rather than for God.

Most people are aware of Jim Bakker’s $265,000 payoff to Jessica Hahn to keep her sexual services to him a secret, his longtime homosexual relationship with his right hand man David Taggart, his prison sentence, his close relationship to Billy Graham, and his lust for public spotlight.

On CNN/Larry King Live, Jan. 30, 2001 from Bonifay, Florida, Jim Bakker, whose ministry crumbled in 1987 when it was discovered that he used church donations to pay his secretary to hide their sexual affair stated “I’m actually making plans to go back on television. I haven’t announced it. It’s not too many weeks away. We may be making our debut.”

The Associated Press reported on December10, 2002 that the cafe where Jim Bakker plans to carry daily broadcasts has opened. Now, the fallen televangelist must persuade TV stations to carry his talk show. Diners at Studio City Cafe will be the studio audience, local and national entertainers will be featured guests and Bakker and his wife, ordained minister Lori Graham Bakker, will be hosts. The show will feature the 20 Christian singers who double as wait staff, cashiers and cooks at the 260-seat cafe operated by the Churchill Coffee Company. “We’re not looking at the big (networks) yet,” said Chris Busch, director of Tulsa, Okla.-based B/M/C Advertising, which is recruiting television stations. “Jim wants steady, controlled, well-managed growth. He’ll be tweaking the show initially. One thing we know for sure is Jim believes in excellence.”

Bakker’s backers, both newfound and those dating to Bakker’s scandal-riddled PTL Ministries in York County, S.C., are financing and encouraging the project. “It’s surreal to me right now. I know there are some people who won’t like me, and I don’t blame them. But since I’ve been in Missouri, not one person has been mean or cruel or said a sarcastic remark to me,” Bakker said.

The minister – he is unaffiliated with any denomination – returned to Christian evangelism upon his release from federal prison in 1995 and began working with a ministry in Los Angeles. He was convicted of mail and wire fraud 13 years ago. In recent years, he has operated from Vernon, Fla., where he founded another independent ministry, New Covenant Fellowship. Bakker said he has been stunned by the outpouring of moral and financial support and volunteer labor he has found in Branson. “I’ve never been welcomed so wonderfully anywhere in my life,” Bakker said. “I’m beyond excited. I’m overwhelmed. People are just doing things. Last week, a man that sells carpeting chased me with his truck, and he told me he had heard me on the radio talking about this. He said, `God told me to do whatever you asked. What can I do for you?'”

As his fellow evangelists seemed to take their turns facing justified criticism, Billy Graham maintained his own integrity and the sincerity of his message. Far from publicly condemning his peers, Billy spoke of them with concern, and even visited Jim Bakker in prison for birds of feather stick together.

It is not known whether the Graham’s, including Billy and Franklin Graham, will be assisting Bakker in with his ventures. Franklin came to prison over and over again to visit Jim Bakker. Franklin Graham said, “Jim Bakker’s my friend”. When Bakker got out of prison the Grahams sponsored him and paid for a house for him to live in and gave him a car to drive.

None of the Graham’s supported or comforted any of the Jim Bakker’s victims! It didn’t matter to the Grahams that -Bakker had 47 bank accounts, 6 luxury homes, $1.9 million dollar salary and Rolls Royce and Mercedez cars.

- Falwell called Bakker a liar, an embezzler and sexual deviate. He fired Bakker’s entire staff when he took over Praise the Lord show. Falwell bankrupted the PTL Club calling Bakker “the greatest scab and cancer on the face of Christianity in two thousand years of church history”

But Jim Bakker won’t have to pay $120 million to former followers who bought “partnerships” in his PTL tele-ministry. A jury in North Carolina on July 23, 1996 threw out a class action suit brought on behalf of more than 160,000 onetime believers who paid as much as $7,000 each in the ’80s to join Jim and Tammy Faye in holy larceny.

However the Internal Revenue Service says Bakker and Messner owe personal income taxes from the 1980s when they were building their Praise The Lord empire reported the Charlotte Observer. The IRS assessed the taxes after revoking the PTL ministry’s nonprofit status, said Roe Messner, Tammy Faye’s husband since 1993.

Tammy Faye Messner new husband said Jim Bakker and his former wife didn’t want to talk about the tax issues. “We don’t want to stir the pot,” Messner said. He said the original tax amount was about $500,000. Penalties and interest account for the rest of the bill. The notices reinstating the liens list “James O. and Tamara F. Bakker” as owing $3 million.

On his website, Jim Bakker is still being a parasite, living off money that he steals from others, stating:

Dear Internet Friend,

It’s not an accident that you have come to this page on this website at this critical hour in the life of this ministry!

Lori and I thank you for your meaningful support. Even Moses had the help of faithful loved ones who held up his arms to steady him at a critical hour in his ministry (Exodus 17:12).

We need you today to hold up our arms, to steady us at this exciting hour in the life of this growing and vital outreach. My heart is bonded with you and the Apostle Paul who admonished the Saints of God:

He who sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and he who sows bountifully will also reap bountifully.

So let each one give as he purposes in his heart, not grudgingly or of necessity; for God loves a cheerful giver.

And God is able to make all grace abound toward you, that you, always having all sufficiency in all things, may have an abundance for every good work.

- 2 Corinthians 9:6-8, NKJ

I need your help right now! Think it not strange that you are reading these words from my heart at this very moment, “online”! Your obedience to God’s leading will be a needed breakthrough for us right now.

Would you make a pledge to this ministry for $100?

Bakker, who apparently made all of the financial decisions for the PTL and kept two sets of books to conceal the accounting irregularities, took conspicuous consumption to new extremes. PTL once spent over $100,000 for a private jet to fly the Bakker’s clothing across the country. PTL also spent more than $100 on a purchase of cinnamon rolls because Jim and Tammy wanted the smell of them in their hotel room. “They [Bakkers] epitomized the excesses of the nineteen eighties–the greed, the love of glitz, and the shamelessness–which in their case was so pure as to almost amount to a kind of innocence. “

PTL sold “lifetime memberships” for a $1,000 or more, which entitled buyers to a 3-night stay annually at a luxury hotel in Heritage USA. According to the prosecution at Bakker’s trial, tens of thousands of memberships had been sold, and only one 500-room hotel completed. Bakker had not only sold more “exclusive” partnerships than could be accomodated, but had also raised more than twice the money needed to build the hotel. The Bakker trial revealed that a good deal of the money had gone into operating expenses of Heritage USA, and Bakker kept $3,700,000 for himself. (Frances FitzGerald, “Jim and Tammy,” The New Yorker, April 29, 1990.)

Between 1984 and mid-1987, the Bakkers received annual salaries of $200,000 each and Jim awarded himself over $4 million in bonuses. The Bakkers own, among other things, a $600,000 house in Palm Springs, 4 condos in California, and a Rolls Royce. (“Fresh Out of Miracles,” Newsweek, May 11, 1987 & “TV’s Unholy Row,” Time, Apr 6, 1987.)

The former televangelist preached at Central Assembly of God in Muskegon, Mich., July 30, 2000, Religion News Service reported. It was the first time he had been there in 30 years. “If I’ve ever hurt you, I say please forgive me,” Bakker told the congregation of several hundred people during a two-hour service. “My life was smashed, but Jesus Christ has put me back together again.” Bakker’s grandfather helped start the church in the Depression, and his cousins and their families still attend there.

Jim Bakker nor the Assembly of God with whom he was ordained have never publicly discussed or dealt with the fact that Jim Bakker was Bi-sexual or that his real lover was a man! Although a contrite Jim Bakker returned to his childhood church to ask forgiveness, he never talked about David Taggart his great male lover! Bakker, the founder on the now non existent PTL Club and Village, has downplayed the role of the bisexual evangelist John Wesley Fletcher, who arranged his tryst with Jessica Hahn. He hardly talks about James and David Taggart, the brothers who many claim controlled Bakker in his final PTL years Fletcher was bitter and said Bakker had failed to keep promises and had forsaken him during tough times. Fletcher stated during the “Pearlygate” media storm that he, too, had been sexually involved with bisexual Bakker, reported Christianity Today.

So it was not surprising that Tammy Faye Bakker ( now Messner), who divorced Bakker, would have a prominent role in the gay pride festivities in Washington in June 2002. The former televangelist was to judge a Tammy Faye look-alike contest, appear at a fund-raising dinner and speak from the main stage of the Capital Pride 2002 street festival.

.

There are those who believe that Tammy Faye is really a drag queen. Once adored by viewers of the electronic church, Messner now appears at gay-pride events nationwide, such as a Tammy Faye look-alike contest held in Washington, D.C., recently where, according to National Public Radio, she was “surrounded by men in falsies and pancake makeup and…impossible to upstage.”

.

“I’m just trying to give back to them,” she says. “I…tell them there’s a God who loves them and cares for them. I told them there’s a better way out…that nothing can give you peace except Jesus.” Messner does not specifically address the issue of homosexuality being a sin when she talks to groups of gays. “I leave that up to the Holy Spirit because unless He speaks to them, they won’t change anyway,” she said.

.

But Tammy Faye’s former husband, Assembly of God Evangelist Jim Bakker, the founder on the now non existent PTL Club and Village, has downplayed the role of the bisexual evangelist John Wesley Fletcher, who arranged his tryst with Jessica Hahn. He hardly talks about James and David Taggart, the brothers who many claim controlled Bakker in his final PTL years or that David Taggart was his lover and gave him blow jobs.

.

Fletcher was bitter and said Bakker had failed to keep promises and had forsaken him during tough times. Fletcher stated during the “Pearlygate” media storm that he, too, had been sexually involved with bisexual Bakker, reported Christianity Today

.

Bakker, former head of PTL Ministries and Heritage USA, served five years in federal prison on fraud charges. He has spoken about confession of sins, forgiveness, and reconciliation for the last two years in churches around the country, RNS reported. Bakker’s wife, Tammy Faye, divorced him while he was in prison and married his best friend, Roe Messner. Bakker, who remarried about two years ago, is starting a ministry in Florida for children from inner cities.

.

At times in prison “I felt like God had left me,” Bakker said. “That’s the real problem with prosperity teaching,” a cornerstone in his television days. “If God comes to you when you prosper, do you think he will walk away when you are poor?” he asked. “There’s a lot of false doctrine going around, and I was preaching a lot of it.”

.

Jim Bakker and clan were also on Larry King Live on May 30, 2000 spewing out their form of Christianity. It was a three ring circus of fools. Bakker’s son said he was ” angry that people do not allow preachers to be human.” Bakker even presented a bible as a gift to Larry King’s wife.

.

Bakker and Messner said they had made up with each other after the collapse of the ministry and their divorce. “I don’t blame Tammy Faye for going on with her life,” and divorcing him after he was sentenced to 45 years in prison for fraud, Bakker said. Messner said she had forgiven Bakker for having an affair, said he had not deserved to go to prison, and called him “a very good man.”

.

Bakker was out of prison and sometimes preaches. He said his faith grew during five years in prison, which he calls “the greatest training and seminary and intimate relation with God that I ever could have had.” “I’m just grateful to God that we’re still alive and that Jim’s happy and I’m happy,” Messner said. The Bakkers’ two children, Tammy Sue Chapman and Jay Bakker, also were on the program.

.

Jim Bakker, former president and founder of PTL, and Richard Dortch, former executive vice president, both served prison terms for fraud convictions that resulted from a failed “Lifetime Partnerships” project for a hotel at Heritage USA. Both men have since returned to active ministry endeavors-Dortch in Tampa, Fla., and Bakker in Los Angeles and Charlotte, N.C.

.

Bakker, was convicted in 1989 of defrauding 116,000 followers who sent him at least $1,000 each in return for promised lodging at his religious/recreational complex, Heritage USA near Charlotte, N.C. During his trial, prosecutors said the scheme brought about $158 million into the Praise the Lord television ministry that Bakker and his former wife, Tammy Faye, founded in 1972.

.

Bakker helped dedicate the 10,000-seat Carpenter’s Home Church in Lakeland, Florida in 1985. The Straders went through a major split of Carpenter’s Home Church in 1989 when the Straders refused to relinquish the financial control they had on the ministry, the church and its assets.

.

After getting out from prison Baker once spoke at Carpenter’s Home church and said Strader’s wife, Joyce, wrote him a letter once a week while he was in prison. I was one of those who helped him build PTL,” said Karl Strader, “and I never did know what he did wrong, frankly. And if he did do something wrong, I forgive him, and I know everybody else here forgives him,” said Strader.

.

Karl Strader was being generous with Jim Bakker for he too wanted absolution from these sins and crimes and those of his family. His oldest son Daniel, 37, was arrested, tried and sentenced to 45 years in prison in August 1995. He was convicted of 238 felony counts for bilking 57 mostly elderly investors, some members of the church, out of $2.3 million by selling investments in properties that didn’t exist or already had liens against them. Dan’s specialty was to pray with and prey on his victims with the help of his father.

.

It is to be noted that Richard Dortch, a former Assembly of God district superintendent and vice president of the PTL Club, who paid Jessica Hahn off to buy her silence, led a campaign to raise $52,000 for the defense of Dan Strader but not a penny for any of Dan’s victims. In response to all of this Paul Humphries wrote to the author and stated:

.

“See, you do expect too much from our preachers and their family. You think a lil’ ole raping and plundering and driving people to murder is wrong. You’ve got to lighten up, the lord allows for preachers to twist and change the commandments or even selectively choose which commandments are apt for that particular time and place.

.

Since people are people, you can’t expect them to follow all the commandments do you? Since you can’t follow all of them even part of the time, then to hell with all of them, don’t follow any of them……..of course tell the sheep to follow every one of them.”

.

While Jeffrey K. Hadden, professor of sociology at the University of Virginia at Charlottesville, and Anson Shupe in their book Televangelism: Power & Politics On God’s Frontier wrote:

There were many significant underlying themes to give the PTL scandal a cheap theatrical appeal guaranteed to keep it in the news for months. The 1987 unholy wars of televangelism brought together most of the leading figures in syndicated religious programming. Even Robert Schuller, whose theology is light years and Crystal Cathedral a continent away from the Bakker action, became involved early on when PTL counselor Norman Roy Grutman commented that people who live in glass houses should not cast stones-seemingly implicating Schuller as a culprit in the alleged “hostile takeover.”

.

The first and grandest theme tying all the other subplots together was the fairy-tale life of the central characters themselves. The main scene for most of the action was a fantasy world called Heritage USA, which Jim and Tammy Faye created from the dimes and dollars of those who sent their savings and Social Security checks. The sad part of the Bakker fairy tale began on March 19 when a tearful Jim told his television audience how a very mean man was about to usurp Jim and Tammy’s kingdom. The ammunition possessed by this mean man (who was shortly to be identified as televangelist Jimmy Swaggart) was information about an itty-bitty affair Jim Bakker had had with a church secretary years before.

.

A second significant subplot in this unholy religious soap involved evidence of personal misconduct, mismanagement, and pillaging of the PTL treasury. Thus, there were two dimensions to the scandal: the Bakkers’ personal “moral” lives, and their mismanagement and misuse of Heritage USA resources. And just when it seemed that all the sordid details had oozed out, new disclosures and allegations of offenses emerged.

.

In the beginning, there was only the sexual indiscretion, when Jim Bakker, in a moment of mental exhaustion and loneliness, succumbed to the advances of a young seductress. The way Bakker told the story to Jerry Falwell, he was so ashamed that he became impotent and was unable to consummate the liaison. The hush money he paid to the woman, a church secretary, was for the sake of the PTL ministry, Bakker said.

.

Within hours, newspaper reporters were in hot pursuit of tips about other alleged incidents of personal misconduct. Lots of people were talking, but nobody wanted to speak on the record.

.

Then, on the eve of a meeting of the newly constituted PTL board headed by Jerry Falwell at Heritage USA, rumors suggested that Jim and Tammy Faye might return to retake possession of their fiefdom, and this prospect led the Reverend John Ankerberg, host of a debate format TV show broadcast from Chattanooga, Tennessee, to tell what he knew.

.

Ankerberg used first “The Larry King Show,” then “Nightline,” to talk generally about the sexual escapades, the mismanagement of PTL resources, and the exorbitant salaries and bonuses paid to the Bakkers and their closest cronies. Ankerberg was not explicit, but he told enough to intrigue the media. After six weeks of intensive investigative reporting, the alleged details out-Gantryed Elmer Gantry: infidelity, homosexuality, prostitution, alcoholism, even wife-swapping among top managers at PTL.

.

While confessing that all have sinned and come short of the glory of the kingdom of God, the Bakkers were not about to answer the litany of allegations. “Ninety-nine percent of what they [the media] have printed or said about Jim and Tammy Bakker bears no truth whatsoever,” Tammy told a gathering of reporters in April outside their Palm Springs retreat.

.

The Bakkers declined to meet their accusers. Jerry Falwell offered them that opportunity; so did the elders of the Assemblies of God, which conducted their own inquiry. When Bakker declined to appear before his district presbytery to face charges, the Assemblies of God dismissed him for “conduct unbecoming to a minister.”

.

Reverend G. Raymond Carlson, general superintendent of the church, said the “alleged misconduct involving bisexual activity” weighed heavily in the decision to unfrock Bakker. Carlson noted further that the word alleged was used because Bakker did not wish to defend himself..

.

For many people, allegations of misappropriating PTL resources for their own personal use and the payment of huge salaries and bonuses were far more serious charges than the allegations of sexual misconduct.

.

The Bakkers had appointed a rubber-stamp board of directors to oversee their management practices. In return for acquiescing to Jim and Tammy’s whims, several of these board members received tens of thousands of dollars in fees, bonuses, and contributions to their own projects.

.

In 1986 the Bakkers were paid $1.9 million; since 1984, a total of $4.8 million had been paid to them. In addition, PTL monies were used for expensive homes, a palatial suite at the Heritage Grand Hotel, automobiles, lavish wardrobes, vacations, and parties.

.

The Bakkers’ closest associates were privy to their high living at the expense of PTL partners. They, too, were well paid. Reverend Richard Dortch, the Assemblies of God minister who many thought had brought some order and organization to the rapidly growing Heritage USA operations, was paid $240,000 in 1985 and $350,000 in 1986. He received approximately $270,000 during the first three months of 1987 before Falwell sacked him. David Taggart, a twenty-nine-year-old “personal aide” to Bakker, received $360,000 in 1986; Jim Bakker’s personal secretary received $160,000.

.

And then there were “consultants.” James Taggart, interior decorator and David Taggart’s brother, was paid $10,000 a month, but, according to the new PTL management, he had performed no services “for months.”‘ Peter B. Teeley, press secretary to George Bush until 1984, was paid $120,000 for eighteen months to serve as a Washington “liaison”; apparently there were no written records of any services performed.

.

Assembly of God Evangelist Jimmy Swaggart, had been accused of complicity in the “diabolical plot” to take over the Bakker ministry by Jim Bakker. Swaggart said that he had initiated a church inquiry into Bakker’s personal conduct, but that it was “absurd and ridiculous” to suggest that he wanted to take over PTL.

.

He also stated ” I’m ashamed, I’m embarrassed. The gospel of Jesus Christ has never sunk to such a level as it has today. We’ve got a dear brother in Tulsa, Oklahoma, perched up in a tower telling people that if they don’t send money that God’s going to kill him, then we got this soap opera being carried out live down in South Carolina all in the name of God. (. Jeffrey A. Frank and Lloyd Grove, “The Raging Battles Of the Evangelicals,” Washington Post, March 25, 1987.)

.

In an interview on “The Larry King Show,” Swaggart claimed that Bakker’s downfall represented a “very glad day, because this cancer has been excised that I feel has caused the body of Christ untold reproach. ‘ ( Associated Press, “Swaggart Calls Bakker ‘Cancer’ of Christ,” The Daily Progress (Charlottesville, Virginia), March 25, 1987.)

.

These comments aroused Oral Roberts’s ire, and he blasted Swaggart while defending Bakker. Foolish Oral Roberts forgave and defended Jim Bakker for something that was not forgivable. God does not forgive those who rob, rape and murder in the house of God as Eli and his two sons were not forgiven. Something that is in the very bible that they sometime use and is true.

.

Oral Roberts forgave his friend, Jim Bakker, for robbing and raping in the house of God. Roberts made large contributions to the Praise the Lord (PTL) ministry of Jim and Tammy Bakker when they fell into hard times during the 1987 scandal. (Sara Diamond, Spiritual Warfare (Boston, MA: South End Press, 1989). Then he wondered why the City of Faith of faith was not finished, the law school was not accredited and ORU incurred a 40 million dollar debt. (Robert’s aides confirmed annual donations of $58 million in 1986, but the Association’s Internal Revenue Service returns show that the organization has been losing money steadily since 1986)

.

Jim Bakker always felt that people were conspiring against him-especially journalists, politicians and judges. It was reported in Christianity Today in an article by Terry Mattingly’s religion column for 12/04/96.

.

” After the 1987 collapse of his empire, he said he had been betrayed by other televangelists. “I sorrowfully acknowledge that seven years ago … I was wickedly manipulated by treacherous former friends and colleagues who victimized me with the aid of a female confederate,” he said. “They conspired to betray me into a sexual encounter at a time of great stress in my marital life. … I was set up as part of a scheme to co-opt me and obtain some advantage for themselves over me in connection with their hope for position in the ministry.”

.

In other words, the first domino at PTL was a scheme that preceded Bakker’s 1980 sexual liaison with Jessica Hahn, a conspiracy within his inner circle that preceded “Pearlygate.” Yet Bakker has nothing new to say about these “friends and colleagues” and their scheme. In particular, he downplays the role of the bisexual evangelist John Wesley Fletcher, who arranged the tryst with Hahn, and he hardly mentions James and David Taggart, the brothers who many claim controlled Bakker in his final PTL years.

.

In his book, Bakker confesses many sins. He repents of his “health and wealth” theology, saying he sinfully twisted scripture. He offers 647 pages of near-stream-of-consciousness details about lessons he learned during his trial, divorce and prison years. But he continues to avoid some questions.

.

“For most Pentecostal and charismatic people, the most serious questions about Jim Bakker were all those allegations of moral misconduct. … People haven’t forgotten that,” said historian Vinson Synan of Regent University in Virginia Beach, Va. “There does appear to have been a kind of subterranean, homosexual world inside PTL that has never been fully described. That’s where so many questions remain.”

.

Mind you Jerry Falwell did conspire against Jim Bakker. By 1987 Jerry Falwell Ministries had reached its peak but Jerry Falwell wanted more. Jim Bakker then owned the largest Christian television network in the world known as the PTL Network, being based in Charlotte, North Carolina. Yet what was called “A Hostile Takeover of the PTL Network” was being formulated.

.

That year, Jerry Falwell and his then attorney entered the home of PTL founders Jim and Tammy Bakker stating they had evidence of a Hostile Takeover of the PTL Network. The person Falwell accused of planning the Hostile Takeover of the PTL Network was none other than the only man in the world with a larger ministry than Jerry Falwell. Falwell convinced Jim and Tammy Bakker that if they would turn over the PTL Network to him for a time he would protect PTL from the Hostile Takeover.

.

In Jim Bakker’s book entitled, “I WAS WRONG”, in Chapter 7 … the chapter labeled “THE HOSTILE TAKEOVER”, Bakker stated that “there was indeed a Hostile Takeover being planned for the PTL Network, but it wasn’t being orchestrated in the offices of Jimmy Swaggart in Baton Rouge, Louisanna. Jim Bakker goes on to point out that it was Jerry Falwell who had designs on PTL. Richard Dortch, was Jim Bakker’s right hand man on the PTL Network. Richard Dortch stated on the Late Steve Brown Show that “if Jerry Falwell would just admit that he tried to get the PTL Network … it was a bad choice on my part … please forgive me … it would send out a breath of fresh air in the body of Christ”. Jim Bakker’s wife Tammy, who has now remarried, has stated repeatedly how Falwell’s actions in the PTL situation has caused untold harm to her family. Jim Bakker even went to prison for years. Jimmy Swaggart made an appeal to have Jim Bakker relieved from his prison sentence after receiving a phone call from Jim Bakker’s son, Jamie. {That is in Bakker’s book as well.}

.

Jim Bakker’s Grahams’ Connection

.

As his fellow evangelists seemed to take their turns facing justified criticism, Billy Graham maintained his own integrity and the sincerity of his message. Far from publicly condemning his peers, Billy spoke of them with concern, and even visited Jim Bakker in prison. When his Crusades would generate more offerings than he had anticipated, both Billy and Ruth gave their share to needy organizations. As for his own efforts to integrate television into his ministry, Billy hosted a half-hour weekly program in 1951 but discontinued it a few years later because of the immense commitment of time it required. Afterwards he telecast his Crusades but never again tried a weekly program.

.

(The Grahams are no different from Jim Bakker. They are liars; deceivers and thieves who claim to have integrity but are false. The Grahams are also scoundrels and money lovers who will not reveal their total compensations as chairmen’s of non-profit organization. Of course as parasites they have not worked in the private sector but have lived off the tax-free donations of others. )

.

On the Graham family Jim Bakker stated – Franklin came to prison over and over again to see me. He wrote me every month. The funny thing is, when he’d come I’d ask him to teach and preach in the chapel. I didn’t want to just have him to myself in the visiting room. And the chaplain always would say to him, “Now don’t give an invitation to accept Christ and don’t admit you know Jim Bakker.” He broke the rules every time, both of them. You know when you’re down in prison and Franklin comes and says, “Jim Bakker’s my friend,” it would just elevate my life for that moment. And then he’d give an invitation to accept Christ, and guys would come to the Lord.

.

When I was transferred to my last prison, Franklin said he wanted to help me out when I got out-with a job, a house to live in, and a car. It was my fifth Christmas in prison. I thought it over and said, “Franklin, you can’t do this. It will hurt you. The Grahams don’t need my baggage.” He looked at me and he said, “Jim, you were my friend in the past and you are my friend now. If anyone doesn’t like it, I’m looking for a fight.”

.

So when I got out of prison the Grahams sponsored me and paid for a house for me to live in and gave me a car to drive. The first Sunday out, Ruth Graham called the halfway house I was living in at the Salvation Army and asked permission for me to go to the Montreat Presbyterian Church with her that Sunday morning. When I got there, the pastor welcomed me and sat me with the Graham family. There were like two whole rows of them-I think every Graham aunt and uncle and cousin was there. The organ began playing and the place was full except for a seat next to me. Then the doors opened and in walked Ruth Graham. She walked down that aisle and sat next to inmate 07407-058. I had only been out of prison 48 hours, but she told the world that morning that Jim Bakker was her friend.

.

Afterwards, she had me up to their cabin for dinner. When she asked me for some addresses, I pulled this envelope out of my pocket to look for them-in prison you’re not allowed to have a wallet, so you just carry an envelope. She asked, “Don’t you have a wallet?” And I said, “Well, yeah, this is my wallet.” After five years of brainwashing in prison you think an envelope is a wallet. She walked into the other room and came back and said, “Here’s one of Billy’s wallets. He doesn’t need it. You can have it.” It reminded me of the time I was in prison when she took all of Billy’s Bibles in his library he wasn’t using and gave them to me to give to other inmates.

.

On Larry King live in the fall of 1998 Southern Baptist Evangelist Billy Graham was insulted when he was compared with TV Evangelists such as Jimmy Swaggart and Jim Bakker and their sex scandals. Billy Graham said that he did not do those things which Jim Bakker or Jim Swaggart did – a statement that turned out to be a lie! For Ned Graham’s own son turned out to be no different than Jim Bakker.

.

Even though a President of an Evangelical Ministry must be blameless, the husband of one wife, temperate, sober-minded, of good behavior, hospitable, able to teach; not given to wine, not violent, and not greedy for money, Ned Graham the son of Billy Graham, Southern Baptist minister, president East Gates International, a group that distributes Bibles in China told Christianity Today in an interview that he had abused alcohol and spent an “inappropriate amount of time” with two women on his staff.

.

Grace Community Church, Southern Baptist Convention, in Auburn, Washington–which counted Ned Graham, his wife, and their two sons as members established in 1999 the fact that Ned Graham was an adulterer, alcoholic, wife abuser, and drug user and revoked Graham’s ministerial credentials. It directed Graham to stop using the title reverend.

.

Yet in a style reminiscent of Jimmy Swaggart, who refused to be defrocked by the Assembly of God denomination, Ned Graham left that congregation for another church.

.

Most of the staff and board members of East Gates International resigned amid controversies. East Gates, in Sumner, Wash., withdrew its membership in the Evangelical Council for Financial Accountability after Ned replaced the board members with his sister Ruth Graham McIntyre, brother-in-law Stephan Tchividjian, and business leader Peter Lowe.

.

Christianity Today founded by Billy Graham did not report on one of its own pastors Ollin Collins of Harvest Baptist Church in Fort Worth, and Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary’s board chairman. A man who resigned amid sexual misconduct allegations when he was accused of having sexual relationships with two women who sought counseling.

.

But it did report about the adultery of a black man and a National Baptist but not about the adultery of a white man and Southern Baptist. An adultery which was more hideous and gross because Collins raped unsuspecting trusting women, while Lyons adulterous relationships were consensual. It has been said that Lyons will go down in the history books as “Hugh Hefner of the New Testament.” http://headlines.yahoo.com/Full_Coverage/US/Henry_Lyons

.

Now concerning the fallen hero, the church had suspended Pastor Collins with pay pending an investigation. He resigned from his board position one day after a story in the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reported the women’s allegations and their intent to sue. Southwestern is the world’s largest evangelical seminary, with 3,000 students on eight campuses.

.

But of course neither the Seminary nor the Church did nothing for the real female victims but they did help and console the aggressor? Just like Billy Graham stated about Bill Clinton “I forgive him . . . because I know the frailty of human nature, and especially a strong, vigorous young man like he is. “He has such a tremendous personality that I think the ladies just go wild over him.”

.

While Jeffrey K. Hadden, professor of sociology at the University of Virgina at Charlottesville, and Anson Shupe in their book Televangelism: Power & Politics On God& Ch 1: Getting Saved from the Televangelists wrote:

The first and grandest theme tying all the other subplots together was the fairy-tale life of the central characters themselves. The main scene for most of the action was a fantasy world called Heritage USA, which Jim and Tammy Faye created from the dimes and dollars of those who sent their savings and Social Security checks. The sad part of the Bakker fairy tale began on March 19 when a tearful Jim told his television audience how a very mean man was about to usurp Jim and Tammy’s kingdom.

.

The ammunition possessed by this mean man (who was shortly to be identified as televangelist Jimmy Swaggart) was information about an itty-bitty affair Jim Bakker had had with a church secretary years before. Details of the takeover plot unfolded gradually; Swaggart was about to blow the whistle on Bakker to the church elders of the Assemblies of God Church.

This would lead to an investigation that would result in Bakker’s being stripped of his ordination. The shame brought by all of this was not deserved, of course (God and Tammy had both forgiven Jim years before). A little-known clause in the Heritage USA charter bequeaths the entire kingdom to the Assemblies of God in the event that Jim and Tammy are not able to reign. Swaggart, being the most powerful preacher in the Assemblies of God alliance, thus would be the one to move in and take over.

.

A white knight named Jerry Falwell agreed to take the kingdom into custody to protect it from Swaggart’s evil intentions. Two months later, when Bakker advised Falwell that he was ready to return home, Jerry replied, “Not now nor ever.” Jim and Tammy brushed back the tears and told “Nightline’s” Ted Koppel and 23 million Americans- who had stayed up late to see this dramatic episode-how they had been tricked by Falwell.

.

Bakker now claimed that Falwell, the man from Liberty Mountain, had become a thief in the night rather than a white knight. It was Falwell all along, they said, not the honky-tonk preacher from the Louisiana bayou, Jimmy Swaggart, who was the real villain. Falwell, with his slick-talking New York lawyer, had tricked Jim and Tammy Faye into believing that the only way they could save their kingdom was to relinquish it to Jerry-temporarily.

.

Exhausted and bewildered, Jim and Tammy Bakker had tearfully given up their magic kingdom with its Rolls-Royces and furs and goldfixtured dressing rooms and presidential suite and credit cards and daily starring roles in their own “Wheel of Fortune.”

.

Ted Koppel had warned Jim and Tammy at the beginning of the “Nightline” program “not to wrap themselves in the Bible.” By the end of the program, it was Koppel who had been wrapped in the mesmerizing melodramatic tragicomic fantasy the couple had spun.

.

Playing to Koppel and the huge television audience with words that sounded ever so sweet and loving, Jim Bakker now declared war against Falwell. They just wanted to come home to Heritage USA, but if Jerry Falwell wouldn’t let them, they might start a new Shangri-La in the California desert near their Palm Springs hideaway.

.

Koppel advised them that this might be difficult in light of reports from Heritage USA that the mail was running overwhelmingly in support of Falwell’s measures to save the spiritual Disneyland. “If the people don’t want us back, if they want Jerry Falwell, then they should support Jerry Falwell,” said an emotional Bakker. “. . . But if they don’t, they should support Jim and Tammy Bakker.”l3 The Bakkers seemed genuinely unable to grasp the reality of the tragedy that had befallen them, to say nothing of its impact on others.

.

A second significant subplot in this unholy religious soap involved evidence of personal misconduct, mismanagement, and pillaging of the PTL treasury. Thus, there were two dimensions to the scandal: the Bakkers’ personal “moral” lives, and their mismanagement and misuse of Heritage USA resources. And just when it seemed that all the sordid details had oozed out, new disclosures and allegations of offenses emerged.

.

In the beginning, there was only the sexual indiscretion, when Jim Bakker, in a moment of mental exhaustion and loneliness, succumbed to the advances of a young seductress. The way Bakker told the story to Jerry Falwell, he was so ashamed that he became impotent and was unable to consummate the liaison. The hush money he paid to the woman, a church secretary, was for the sake of the PTL ministry, Bakker said.

.

Within hours, newspaper reporters were in hot pursuit of tips about other alleged incidents of personal misconduct. Lots of people were talking, but nobody wanted to speak on the record.

.

Then, on the eve of a meeting of the newly constituted PTL board headed by Jerry Falwell at Heritage USA, rumors suggested that Jim and Tammy Faye might return to retake possession of their fiefdom, and this prospect led the Reverend John Ankerberg, host of a debate format TV show broadcast from Chattanooga, Tennessee, to tell what he knew.

.

Ankerberg used first “The Larry King Show,” then “Nightline,” to talk generally about the sexual escapades, the mismanagement of PTL resources, and the exorbitant salaries and bonuses paid to the Bakkers and their closest cronies. Ankerberg was not explicit, but he told enough to intrigue the media. After six weeks of intensive investigative reporting, the alleged details out-Gantryed Elmer Gantry: infidelity, homosexuality, prostitution, alcoholism, even wife-swapping among top managers at PTL.

.

While confessing that all have sinned and come short of the glory of the kingdom of God, the Bakkers were not about to answer the litany of allegations. “Ninety-nine percent of what they [the media] have printed or said about Jim and Tammy Bakker bears no truth whatsoever,” Tammy told a gathering of reporters in April outside their Palm Springs retreat. .

.

The Bakkers declined to meet their accusers. Jerry Falwell offered them that opportunity; so did the elders of the Assemblies of God, which conducted their own inquiry. When Bakker declined to appear before his district presbytery to face charges, the Assemblies of God dismissed him for “conduct unbecoming to a minister.” Reverend G. Raymond Carlson, general superintendent of the church, said the “alleged misconduct involving bisexual activity” weighed heavily in the decision to unfrock Bakker. 15 Carlson noted further that the word alleged was used because Bakker did not wish to defend himself.

.

For many people, allegations of misappropriating PTL resources for their own personal use and the payment of huge salaries and bonuses were far more serious charges than the allegations of sexual misconduct.

.

The Bakkers had appointed a rubber-stamp board of directors to oversee their management practices. In return for acquiescing to Jim and Tammy’s whims, several of these board members received tens of thousands of dollars in fees, bonuses, and contributions to their own projects.

.

In 1986 the Bakkers were paid $1.9 million; since 1984, a total of $4.8 million had been paid to them. In addition, PTL monies were used for expensive homes, a palatial suite at the Heritage Grand Hotel, automobiles, lavish wardrobes, vacations, and parties.

.

The Bakkers’ closest associates were privy to their high living at the expense of PTL partners. They, too, were well paid. Reverend Richard Dortch, the Assemblies of God minister who many thought had brought some order and organization to the rapidly growing Heritage USA operations, was paid $240,000 in 1985 and $350,000 in 1986. He received approximately $270,000 during the first three months of 1987 before Falwell sacked him. David Taggart, a twenty-nine-year-old “personal aide” to Bakker, received $360,000 in 1986; Jim Bakker’s personal secretary received $160,000.

.

And then there were “consultants.” James Taggart, interior decorator and David Taggart’s brother, was paid $10,000 a month, but, according to the new PTL management, he had performed no services “for months.”‘ Peter B. Teeley, press secretary to George Bush until 1984, was paid $120,000 for eighteen months to serve as a Washington “liaison”; apparently there were no written records of any services performed.

.

When the Bakkers departed, the financial records of the organization were in shambles-as they probably had been for years. No fewer than forty-seven separate checking accounts were found in the first days of the Falwell takeover. “The books are a mess,” proclaimed Harry Hargrave, the Dallas-based consultant Falwell hired to become PTL’s new chief executive officer.

.

Noted Jerry Nims (Falwell’s CEO for the “Old Time Gospel Hour” in Lynchburg), who came in to help dig out, “This was a business organization that was totally out of control. 20 Added Nims, “For these folks, there were no rules. You’re not talking about people nudging over the line. There was absolutely no line…. It was fiscal sin.”

.

Early on, it appeared that $92 million was missing. As the financial records of Heritage USA were consolidated and audited, much of this money was accounted for, but then evidence of unpaid bills began to grow. By early June, outstanding debts were estimated at $70 million owed to 1,400 creditors, and $23 million of this debt was delinquent.

.

Independent of the struggle between Jim Bakker and Jerry Falwell was the unsightly scene of other members of the Protestant cloth taking sides and launching verbal missiles at one another. In addition to the principals of the electronic church, there emerged a large cast of walkon characters seeking a moment of glory in front of the camera.

.

“Many of his longtime friends…are shocked and bewildered that a man who has traveled the country pleading with Christian people to think and act biblically is now thinking and acting so anti-biblically,” Little wrote. His letter was posted last week on the Web site of Operation Save America, the new name for OR.

.

Well-known for his leadership of militant opposition to abortion, Terry called the charges “absolute nonsense, insanity.” He told the “Post” that he and his wife had separated and their marriage was in crisis. Their problems were “personal, painful and private.” Little had violated a confidential pastor-parishioner relationship, he said.

.

Terry recently founded Loyal Opposition, a group dedicated to preserving the sanctity of traditional marriage and opposing the legalization of same-sex union moves in Vermont. Marriage is honorable among all, and the bed undefiled; but fornicators and adulterers God will judge. Hebrews 13:4.is still in the bible

‘Chosen’ is only used of those who follow Jesus Christ now

Chosen
It may surprise you to discover that the New Testament never uses the term ‘chosen’ to describe the Jewish people. It is only used of those who follow Jesus Christ now
.
Jesus Christ has only one body and only one bride, one people that he claims as his own, which is the true Israel of God. This one people is made up of Jews and Gentiles who believe that Jesus is the promised Messiah and have accepted Jesus Christ as their personal Lord and savior, as well as his Holy Spirit.  http://witnessed.wordpress.com/2013/09/12/so-what-is-the-future-hope-of-the-nation-of-israel-today/

Now also all the promises of God now still only belong to the Christians only as they solely now are true Israel.. When Christ had Jesus shouted, “It is finished!” the Old Jewish Covenant with God had ended and A NEW COVENA
NT was made effective, even clearly in the Jerusalem Temple where the curtain, veil in the Temple was torn.. THE WAY TO HEAVEN IS BY JESUS CHRIST.
.
Mk 15: 37 And Jesus cried with a loud voice, and gave up the ghost.38 And the veil of the temple was rent in twain from the top to the bottom.

(1 Pet 2:4 KJV) To whom coming, as unto a living stone, disallowed indeed of men, but chosen of God, and precious,

(1 Pet 2:9 KJV) But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should show forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light:

Israel today is The Christian Church! Only the clearly false ungodly Dispensationalists are interested in maintaining a sharp distinction between “Israel” and “the Church” even across a whole range of theological matters pertaining to prophecy, ecclesiology, and soteriology. They falsely oppose the truth that Paul is using the phrase “Israel of God” a an established fact now it includes Gentiles, because this undermines their false contention that “the Church” is always carefully distinguished from “Israel” in Scripture. The major tenet of dispensationalist hermeneutics. as per C.I. Scofield in his tract, Rightly Dividing the Word of Truth (New York, Loizeaux Brothers, 1888) wrote, “Comparing, then, what is said in Scripture concerning Israel and the Church, [a careful Bible student ] finds that in origin, calling, promise, worship, principles of conduct, and future destiny-all is contrast.” Likewise Charles Ryrie in his book Dispensationalism Today (Chicago, 1965) explained that the “basic premise of Dispensationalism is two purposes of God expressed in the formation of two peoples who maintain their distinction throughout eternity.” They do this cause they are not Holy Spirit Led.. actually deny almost the personal existence of the Holy Spirit in Guiding us into all truth.. falsey try to explain portions of the Bible away that do not meet their false pre conceived dogma. For them to  limit the meaning of “Israel of God” to the carnal sons of Judah betrays a fundamentally wrong approach to biblical interpretation, and to New Testament theology in particular . “Jesus Christ … is the new law, and the new covenant, and the expectation of those who out of every people wait for the good things of God. For the true spiritual Israel, and the descendants of Judah, Jacob, Isaac, and Abraham (who in uncircumcision was approved of and blessed by God on account of his faith, and called the father of many nations), are we who have been led to God through this crucified Christ. ”  .

Psalms 31:18, “Let the lying lips be put to silence;”    Psalms 58:3, “The wicked are estranged from the womb: they go astray as soon as they be born, speaking lies.”
.
Titus 1:11 Whose mouths must be stopped, who subvert whole houses, teaching things which they ought not, for filthy lucre’s sake.
.
1 Peter 5:2 Feed the flock of God which is among you, taking the oversight thereof, not by constraint, but willingly; not for filthy lucre, but of a ready mind;
.
Amazingly enough, the Bible itself was AND IS OFTEN STILL BEING USED AS A primary tool for deception. By the false interpretation, adulteration and misrepresentation of the scriptures, ambitious men justify their false spirituality This is no less than a fact that continues to this very day. “Wherefore rebuke them sharply, that they may be sound in the faith ” (Titus 1: 13).
.
It is an untenable fact of life that the masses of people, even most professing Christians are still very much Bible ignorant persons who mainly and falsely rely on others for their Christian knowledge and doctrines . And it also an undeniable fact of life that even most preachers do have hidden or not so hidden agendas, Fame, Prestige, Power, Monetary aspects and sex included now, so they are also still mostly false preachers and they deceive the masses of people, professing Christians even. This all very sad while the devil is laughing all the way, as he is happy with the end results.. The New Testament elaborates these undeniable negative truths existing even today in the last days. Sadly most professing Christian, are still mostly money hungry people even clearly now who are not even Holy Spirit filled? Rather clearly they seem to deny, hate the Holy Spirit and His manifestations now too.. and what these fools think they are going to Heaven and not Hell.. dream on
.
Also The vast majority of preaching and Christian living done in the name the dispensationalists today is still really without the power of the Holy Spirit manifest through the gifts of the Holy Spirit.
.
AND THAT IS THE ROOT ISSUE, REAL PROBLEM THAT STILL NEEDS TO BE PERSONALLY DEALT WITH.. ONE’S SINFUL CARNAL FLESH NOT SUBJECT TO THE HOLY SPIRIT YET. THAT IS STILL SIN TOO. AND IS PREACHING AGAINST THE WORK OF THE HOLY SPIRIT WORKS, EXISTENCE.. 
.
“And grieve not the Holy Spirit of God, whereby ye are sealed unto the day of redemption Let all bitterness, and wrath, and anger, and clamour, and evil speaking, be put away from you, with all malice: Eph 4:30
When you grieve God, the Holy Spirit the miraculous blessings of God stops flowing in your life. Other Results of Grieving the Holy Spirit a Lose of the sense of God’s love, joy, peace, assurance and intimacy with God as Father. No power any more over the flesh. No Conviction of sin.
.
The danger of continuing to grieve the Holy Spirit. The dependence on false substitutes now, next instead having, following after the real thing. So we should not grieve or quench the Holy Spirit by refusing to follow His leading. If you do lie even to the Holy Spirit for sure you are not a real Christian. You always have a free will, It is your choice, you reap what you sow. but Galatians 6:7 Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap.
.
Luke 13:35 Behold, your house is left unto you desolate: and verily I say unto you, Ye shall not see me, until the time come when ye shall say, Blessed is he that cometh in the name of the Lord.
.
Galatians 3:28 ESV / There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave nor free, there is no male and female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus.

Revelation 2:9 ESV / ‘I know your tribulation and your poverty (but you are rich) and the slander of those who say that they are Jews and are not, but are a synagogue of Satan.
.
Christian Zionism is a bad cult movement in that it is theabsolute and unconditional idolatry of all of “the Jews” and it falsely does not offer an excuse for its racism and discrimination among people of the world as it’s sole focus of life is to aid the Jews only, and is not supported by the New Testament.
.
”It must be emphasized at the outset that Christian Zionism is viewed by Middle Eastern churches as a new heresy and dangerous intrusion into the life of the people of the region. .” Also for thousands of years the established, traditional Christian Churches rightfully has not preacher, or supported Christian Zionism.. Nor has the New testament or the Apostles as well. The Christian Zionist Movement today is also clearly more concerned with himself being accepted and approved by the hexarchy of Jewish traditionalists over that of Jesus Christ. Will the Christian Zionists be accepted by the hexarchy of Judaism? Never. Can a Christian be an accepted Jew? Never.
.
Matthew 23:38 Behold, your house is left unto you desolate.
.
Romans 10:  1 21    But to Israel he saith, All day long I have stretched forth my hands unto a disobedient and gainsaying people.
.
The word Zion is no longer  generally used in the New Testament it was only a Jewish term.. Zion is the Hebrew name for the Temple Mount in Jerusalem and was the seat of the first and second Holy Temple. It was the most holy place in the world for Jews, seen as the connection between God and humanity. Unsaved Jews recite the Amidah three times a day facing Zion in Jerusalem, FALSELY praying for the rebuilding of the Holy Temple, the restoration of the Temple service, the redemption of the world, and for the coming of the Messiah but he already came and they rejected him..Christians are not to be even  praying for a new Jewish  temple in Jerusalem anymore..
.
 1 Corinthians 3:16 Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you?
.
 1 Corinthians 6: 19 What? know ye not that your body is the  temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own?
.
2 Corinthians 6:16 And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols? for ye are the temple of the living God; as God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people.
.
Revelation 21:22 And I saw no temple therein: for the Lord God Almighty and the Lamb are the temple of it. In the New Testament the Daughter of Zion is the bride of Christ, also known as the Church
.
(Rev 17:14 KJV) These shall make war with the Lamb, and the Lamb shall overcome them: for he is Lord of lords, and King of kings: and they that are with him are called, and chosen, and faithful.
.
Heaven awaits the Jewish return TO God, Jesus Christ, and rather NOT TO THE PROMISED EARTHLY LAND“
.
Lasting peace unity for all Jews can only occur by all accepting our God Jesus Christ as their personal Lord and Savior, and to Love God, love others, be not drunk with wine, be filled with the Holy Spirit, do not lie or steal.. or slander, abuse others..
.

2 Timothy 2: 15 Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.

.
A certain man had a fig tree planted in his vineyard, and he came seeking fruit on it and found none. Then he said to the keeper of his vineyard, ‘Look, for three years I have come seeking fruit on this fig tree and find none. Cut it down; why does it use up the ground?’ But he answered and said to him, ‘Sir, let it alone this year also, until I dig around it and fertilize it. And if it bears fruit, well. But if not, after that you can cut it down.

.
The fig tree is the symbol of the nation of Israel.. the Romans destroyed the temple and all of it’s record in 70 ad. Judaism was now dead to God because..
It should be evident to many people that too many even Jewish persons, Messianic Jews included now too, still do cut and paste, chose Bible verse they like and cut out , they falsely do reject the ones they do not like, misunderstand and/or try to rewrite the Bible to suit their own liking, they have re-interpret Bible verses for their own purposes, as they now are false revisionists.

.
So the Christian Church totally now rather succumbs all of the past promises made to Israel. Be careful about accepting anyone’s word about Christian Zionism do first read the Bible, New Testament for yourself and know the truth rather. Now natural Israel has no longer any standing before God, or any part in His future purposes. The New Testament Scriptures makes it now certain that the national restoration of Israel after the flesh is not a part of the revealed will of God, but that the reverse is true. God regards natural Israel earthly kingdom with utter detestation, and He will never restore it, Next when John the Baptist preached to the Jewish people, saying, “Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is at hand,” he was not announcing the setting up again of the earthly throne of David for Israel as many Jews, some professing Christians falsely hoped, believe it would happen again.
.
These bad dispensatational or Messianc Jews  preachers should really now still stick with the New Testament, what we know for sure and stop leading people into mere lies, speculations’, falsehoods, distortions, errors, cause  they are undeiably when they are wrong.. they tend to be also wrong in so Meany other areas such as the work and the gifts of the Holy Spirit, and how can all these still mostly Holy Spurt hates not see they can have the power, Baptism of the Holy Spirit, the great work of the in the last days outpouring which began at Pentecost? that is why Pentecost are one of the fast growing professing Christian group still and what is the promised restoration of the tabernacle of David now? The restoration of the nation of Israel? the Temple worship in Jerusalem? or what? what does God say it is? What can be more clearer than this in the book of acts that the restoration of the tabernacle of David it is the personal baptism of the holy spirit with the evince of speaking in toungues of any of the Jews or gentiles by Jesus Christ the false Dispensationalist defy falsely this.
.
Dispensationalism is a FALSE system of theology that was first popularized by John Nelson Darby, 19th century British evangelist and forerunner of modern Christian fundamentalism. The false Scofield Reference Bible, written by Cyrus Ingerson Scofield, popularized dispensationalism in the United States. The world’s Jews must return to Israel for a dispensational interpretation of prophecy to be fulfilled. To facilitate that process, dispensationalists have been leading groups of pilgrims to Israel since Falwell’s first visit in order to win financial and political support for settlement activity. The false Brethren wresting of Holy Scriptures to support a line of dispensational reaching contrary to the actual written word of God is still also unacceptable The Brethren oft repeated assertion that the present voice of the Holy Spirit is located in the utterance of men is an affront to the Holy Spirit. “But in vain do they worship me, teaching as their teachings commandments of men. For leaving the commandment of God, ye hold what is delivered by men to keep”,
.
And when I point out the Biblical truths disproving the lies that too many Dispensationalists Christians and Zionists falsely advocate you should see here too how emotional, fanatical, weird, crazy, obscene, immoral some of them next they tend to respond..Yet, we are now too often told today that we are not to the judge these crooked pastors, evangelists but to falsely fellowship with men whose doctrines too often too clearly are just as unscriptural as those of the Pharisees. “Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits, whether they be of God; because many false prophets are gone out into the world” (I John 4: 1)
-
The religiously inclined persons were closed-minded, self-righteous and considered themselves to be the religious elite because they had falsely placed their trust into their fulfilling the works of the Old Testament Laws, therefore, so next their  hearts were hardened and closed to the message of Grace that Jesus had to give as well as they were also closed to the  Holy Spirit who would help them to keep the updated  laws of Jesus and so it is still true so often  today
.
.
Too many still rather mainly self centered persons like to argue with me here , they first tend to claim that they are supposedly dealing with their versions of the facts and truths, but in reality most persons, even very educated ones they are not wise to do so, their basic point in arguing with you is to take your mind of of Jesus Christ and turn your attention on them even as to how wonderful, supposedly they now are. When you next do continue to start to present some reliable truths, facts they tend to still refuse to admit it, have not considered it themselves. so they do next resort to a false personal slanderous attack on you.. start to demand you answer their irrelevant personal Questions first too.. Don’t do this.. This is a part of their continual strategy, the same one they had used before, a false diversion not to let you next still present the facts. Ignore them go on with presenting the facts , truths whether they like it or not now too. No one can argue with the truth, they can only falsely try to deny it.. refuse to accept it.

glory

John 17: 1    These words spake Jesus, and lifted up his eyes to heaven, and said, Father, the hour is come; glorify thy Son, that thy Son also may glorify thee: 2 As thou hast given him power over all flesh, that he should give eternal life to as many as thou hast given him. 3  And this is life eternal, that they might know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent.4 I have glorified thee on the earth: I have finished the work which thou gavest me to do .5 And now, O Father, glorify thou me with thine own self with the glory which I had with thee before the world was.6 I have manifested thy name unto the men which thou gavest me out of the world: thine they were, and thou gavest them me; and they have kept thy word.7 Now they have known that all things whatsoever thou hast given me are of thee. 8 For I have given unto them the words which thou gavest me; and they have received them, and have known surely that I came out from thee, and they have believed that thou didst send me. 9 I pray for them: I pray not for the world, but for them which thou hast given me; for they are thine.10 And all mine are thine, and thine are mine; and I am glorified in them. 11 And now I am no more in the world, but these are in the world, and I come to thee. Holy Father, keep through thine own name those whom thou hast given me, that they may be one, as we are. 12 While I was with them in the world, I kept them in thy name: those that thou gavest me I have kept, and none of them is lost, but the son of perdition; that the scripture might be fulfilled. 13 And now come I to thee; and these things I speak in the world, that they might have my joy fulfilled in themselves. 14 I have given them thy word; and the world hath hated them, because they are not of the world, even as I am not of the world. 15 I pray not that thou shouldest take them out of the world, but that thou shouldest keep them from the evil.16 They are not of the world, even as I am not of the world. 17 Sanctify them through thy truth: thy word is truth. 18 As thou hast sent me into the world, even so have I also sent them into the world.1 9 And for their sakes I sanctify myself, that they also might be sanctified through the truth. 20 Neither pray I for these alone, but for them also which shall believe on me through their word; 21 That they all may be one; as thou, Father, art in me, and I in thee, that they also may be one in us: that the world may believe that thou hast sent me. 22 And the glory which thou gavest me I have given them; that they may be one, even as we are one:23 I in them, and thou in me, that they may be made perfect in one; and that the world may know that thou hast sent me, and hast loved them, as thou hast loved me. 24 Father, I will that they also, whom thou hast given me, be with me where I am; that they may behold my glory, which thou hast given me: for thou lovedst me before the foundation of the world. 25 O righteous Father, the world hath not known thee: but I have known thee, and these have known that thou hast sent me.26 And I have declared unto them thy name, and will declare it: that the love wherewith thou hast loved me may be in them, and I in them.
.
Yes Jesus Christ now wants  all Christian to be one with the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit..
.
One way I can spot a still deceived Messianic Jew is by their comment “The Bible says that all the  Jews should be one, should be united” There is no such verse in either the old or New Testament.. It is only found in the Jewish teachings “We bring all four of these species together on Sukkot to remind us that every one of these four kinds of Jews is important, and that we must all be united. “ Messianic Jews falsely try to combine false Jewish teachings with the teachings of Jesus Christ too often also.
.
But here is what the Bible actually says

 ;
Luke 13:35 Behold, your house is left unto you desolate: and verily I say unto you, Ye shall not see me, until the time come when ye shall say, Blessed is he that cometh in the name of the Lord.

.
Romans 10:12-14 ESV /For there is no distinction between Jew and Greek; for the same Lord is Lord of all, bestowing his riches on all who call on him. For “everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.” How then will they call on him in whom they have not believed? And how are they to believe in him of whom they have never heard? And how are they to hear without someone preaching?
.
Matthew 3:8-9 ESV / Bear fruit in keeping with repentance. And do not presume to say to yourselves, ‘We have Abraham as our father,’ for I tell you, God is able from these stones to raise up children for Abraham.
.
Romans 9:27 ESV / And Isaiah cries out concerning Israel: “Though the number of the sons of Israel be as the sand of the sea, only a remnant of them will be saved,
.
Romans 2:28 ESV / For no one is a Jew who is merely one outwardly, nor is circumcision outward and physical.
.
John 8:39-40 ESV /
They answered him, “Abraham is our father.” Jesus said to them, “If you were Abraham’s children, you would be doing the works Abraham did, but now you seek to kill me, a man who has told you the truth that I heard from God. This is not what Abraham did.
.
Matthew 21:42-44 ESV /Jesus said to them, “Have you never read in the Scriptures: “‘The stone that the builders rejected has become the cornerstone; this was the Lord’s doing, and it is marvelous in our eyes’? Therefore I tell you, the kingdom of God will be taken away from you and given to a people producing its fruits. And the one who falls on this stone will be broken to pieces; and when it falls on anyone, it will crush him.”
.
Hebrews 1:1-14 ESV / Long ago, at many times and in many ways, God spoke to our fathers by the prophets, but in these last days he has spoken to us by his Son, whom he appointed the heir of all things, through whom also he created the world. He is the radiance of the glory of God and the exact imprint of his nature, and he upholds the universe by the word of his power. After making purification for sins, he sat down at the right hand of the Majesty on high, having become as much superior to angels as the name he has inherited is more excellent than theirs. For to which of the angels did God ever say, “You are my Son, today I have begotten you”? Or again, “I will be to him a father, and he shall be to me a son”? …
.
Matthew 28:15 ESV / So they took the money and did as they were directed. And this story has been spread among the Jews to this day.
.
Acts 2:1-47 ESV / When the day of Pentecost arrived, they were all together in one place. And suddenly there came from heaven a sound like a mighty rushing wind, and it filled the entire house where they were sitting. And divided tongues as of fire appeared to them and rested on each one of them. And they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak in other tongues as the Spirit gave them utterance. Now there were dwelling in Jerusalem Jews, devout men from every nation under heaven. …
.
John 8:44 ESV / You are of your father the devil, and your will is to do your father’s desires. He was a murderer from the beginning, and has nothing to do with the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks out of his own character, for he is a liar and the father of lies.
.
John 3:16-17 ESV / “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but in order that the world might be saved through him.
.
Matthew 3:10 ESV / Even now the axe is laid to the root of the trees. Every tree therefore that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire.
Romans 6:23 ESV / For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.
.
Acts 1:8 ESV / But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you, and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth.”
.
Luke 10:10-13 ESV / But whenever you enter a town and they do not receive you, go into its streets and say, ‘Even the dust of your town that clings to our feet we wipe off against you. Nevertheless know this, that the kingdom of God has come near.’ I tell you, it will be more bearable on that day for Sodom than for that town. “Woe to you, Chorazin! Woe to you, Bethsaida! For if the mighty works done in you had been done in Tyre and Sidon, they would have repented long ago, sitting in sackcloth and ashes.;

The job descrition, empowernment

how

Now when I am hired in a new Job I ask my boss for a Job Description. When I meet a new Church Pastor I also do ask him what he thinks his job description is, to even now see if it is Biblically sound, if he really is a good shepherd of the flock. When I also do talk with a Christian I try to confirm his definition of what a Christian really is as there are much too many imposter, pretenders, non Christians. Thus we all do still do need to know as to what is a real Christian?

There is major ,major misunderstanding even in the church as to what it really means to be a Christian. We need to look at what the Bible itself says here firstly too.. To be a Christian is based on the Greek word anointed one, Christos, a person in whom we can see the anointing of the Holy Spirit of Jesus Christ.. do we see yours easily? or do you like bullying others too much still? doing your own thing? (Acts 10:38 KJV) How God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Ghost and with power: who went about doing good, and healing all that were oppressed of the devil; for God was with him.

(1 John 3:21 KJV) I indeed baptize you with water unto repentance: but he that cometh after me is mightier than I, whose shoes I am not worthy to bear: he shall baptize you with the Holy Ghost, and with fire: 2 Whose fan is in his hand, and he will thoroughly purge his floor, and gather his wheat into the garner; but he will burn up the chaff with unquenchable fire.

Luke 12:5 But I will forewarn you whom ye shall fear: Fear him, which after he hath killed hath power to cast into hell; yea, I say unto you, Fear him.

The word “Christ” is a transliteration of the Greek word christos, meaning “the Anointed One, Jesus was the anointed one. Jesus is the Messiah and the transliteration of the Old Testament Hebrew word pronounced maw-shakh, meaning Anointed One, which when translated into the New Testament Greek is Christos. Jesus was the anointed one. Jesus is the Messiah and  the transliteration of the Old Testament Hebrew word pronounced maw-shakh, meaning Anointed One, which when translated into the New Testament Greek is Christos. Matt. 3:11, “As for me, I baptize you with water for repentance, but He who is coming after me is mightier than I, and I am not fit to remove His sandals; He will baptize you with the Holy Spirit and fire.”

Matt. 3:11, “As for me, I baptize you with water for repentance, but He who is coming after me is mightier than I, and I am not fit to remove His sandals; He will baptize you with the Holy Spirit and fire.” Peter told his convicted hearers, “Repent and be baptized, every one of you, in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins. And you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit” Mind you they these same liars who falsely oppose the Holy Spirit, all of his gifts, any association with him too, they do have to Tear out the whole Old and New Testament for a start.. the prophets were clearly anointed, and performed miracles, and the same Jesus yesterday, today and forever who lives in us today too, who was anointed and performed miracles he had also said that believers will do even greater things now too. In the reality now too after all Samson next lost his anointing.. and so did King Saul lose his anointing .. and David asked God not to take away his anointing too after he had sinned with Bathsheba.. Without also the holy Spirit you are headed towards hell.

Apostle Peter next told all of his  convicted hearers, “Repent and be baptized, every one of you, in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins. And you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit”. Beyond the show of a doubt the devil himself firstly really hates any references to the Holy Spirit, the anointed ones, the idea that Christians do have now empowering to overcome the devil too…and so now the devil even  uses any of his followers, even those in the fundamental religious circles too now, to now lie, twist, distort the truths about God, Jesus, The Holy Spirit, the Bible too.

Matthew 10:1 And when he had called unto him his twelve disciples, he gave them power against unclean spirits, to cast them out, and to heal all manner of sickness and all manner of disease.

Luke 24:49 And, behold, I send the promise of my Father upon you: but tarry ye in the city of Jerusalem, until ye be endued with power from on high.

Matthew 22:29 Jesus answered and said unto them, Ye do err, not knowing the scriptures, nor the power of God.

Many professing Christians are still not real Christians now, these days too, because Most people have never even firstly had studied, read what the Bible actually says nor have they been taught by the Holy Spirit firstly, not even many preachers.

The  baptism of the Holy Spirit, the gifts of the Holy spirit, the Anointing , Tongues, Prophets, Apostles, Miracle workers, tithing   have become unarguably the most neglected,  misunderstood, misinterpreted, contentious terms in the news media, in the non Pentecostal and in the Non Charismatic arenas, especially in the fundamental evangelical religious circles and now all even because many of these people are mostly still serving self, doing their own thing, looking up to mere man and not unto God;   As they clearly do not have God’s understanding of these subjects cause they do not have the Holy Spirit.. so they are none of His for a start, they have let unrepentant sin continue in their lives still too

 (1 Chronicles 16:22-24 NKJV) Saying, “Do not touch My anointed ones, And do My prophets no harm.” {23} Sing to the LORD, all the earth; Proclaim the good news of His salvation from day to day. {24} Declare His glory among the nations, His wonders among all peoples.”

Beyond the show of a doubt the devil himself firstly really hates any references to the Holy Spirit, the anointed ones, the idea that Christians do have now empowering to overcome the devil too… and so now the devil uses any of his followers, those in the fundamental religious circles too now, to now lie, twist, distort the Bible truths.   Time also more Christians read their Bible instead of the fictional books, bad commentaries now too. Really! So they will not end up falsely Denying the present role, works of the Holy Spirit, and see the need for their own tangible good works by faith, and deal with their still too often unloving acts towards the others.

Matthew 10”22 And ye shall be hated of all men for my name’s sake: but he that endureth to the end shall be saved.

Jesus did not say you as a real partnering Christian might be, could be hated, he said you will be hated.. especially by both the Jews, and the Unrepentant sinners It’s the frequent and methodical strategy of those people not Holy spirit filled, those carnal, people walking in the flesh that they do bash, recite against anyone who has evidenced the Holy Spirit anointing still too, but we all can still see these false professors own false, unscriptural doctrine and practice for what it is , demonic. It’s now is also a charge of their “blasphemy of the Holy Spirit” and their disobedience of “touch not the Lord’s anointed.”

Unlike the fundamental evangelicals Christians  the Pentecostal Christians  tend to rightfully  believe that one’s Salvation by Jesus Christ is still  a continuing process.  Very few would say that you are eternally saved after you receive Jesus. While   a person is “Saved” upon confessing one’s sin. accepting Jesus Christ as Lord and  the infilling of the Holy Ghost as  evidenced by speaking in other tongues, that person will still really not go further in the Kingdom of God now unless they do also sow good things, apply the Word of God to their own lives, continue to pray, and to apply holiness to their daily lives, and continually, daily learn to live after Jesus. In other words, if all you do is get saved, baptized and filled with the Holy Ghost, but don’t live a real Godly, holy Spirit filled separated life, then your salvation becomes definitely become world, satanic, sinful,  stagnant, and unless you do something to fix that stagnation, you are very  likely to backslide, or walk away from God and end up in hell. You always have a free will, It is your choice, you reap what you sow. So Keeping your Salvation means walking with  God, talking to him, knowing and following solely after His will,  being continually filled by the Holy Spirit and this in prayer, thus living righteously by  and   living  a separated life form the ungodly world, persons. If you do not know the Holy Spirit at all it is for sure you are not a real Christian. The anointing is sacred, the anointing is the Holy Spirit, and all believers in Christ must have the anointing of the Holy Spirit. We here must be careful what we say about our anointed  brothers and sisters in Christ.

Romans 8:9 But ye are not in the flesh, but in the Spirit, if so be that the Spirit of God dwell in you. Now if any man have not the Spirit of Christ, he is none of his.

(Deu 18:19 KJV) And it shall come to pass, that whosoever will not hearken unto my words which he shall speak in my name, I will require it of him.

(Deu 18:20 KJV) But the prophet, which shall presume to speak a word in my name, which I have not commanded him to speak, or that shall speak in the name of other gods, even that prophet shall die

(Jer 14:14 KJV) Then the LORD said unto me, The prophets prophesy lies in my name: I sent them not, neither have I commanded them, neither spake unto them: they prophesy unto you a false vision and divination, and a thing of nought, and the deceit of their heart.

(Jer 23:25 KJV) I have heard what the prophets said, that prophesy lies in my name, saying, I have dreamed, I have dreamed.

(Jer 27:15 KJV) For I have not sent them, saith the LORD, yet they prophesy a lie in my name; that I might drive you out, and that ye might perish, ye, and the prophets that prophesy unto you.

(Matthew 12:31 NKJV) “Therefore I say to you, every sin and blasphemy will be forgiven men, but the blasphemy against the Spirit will not be forgiven men.

(Jer 29:9 KJV) For they prophesy falsely unto you in my name: I have not sent them, saith the LORD.

(Luke 21:8 KJV) And he said, Take heed that ye be not deceived: for many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and the time draweth near: go ye not therefore after them.

The Holy Spirit is real and he can be real to you too.. Jesus Christ himself also was baptized with the Holy Spirit. The “baptism of the Holy Spirit” is given to those persons who obey God, follow after and do his will.. it requires our initial personal involvement, willingness, obedience. The “baptism of the Holy Spirit” involves being covered with, immersed in, empowered by the Holy Spirit. Baptism of the Holy Spirit is a term used to describe a movement of the Spirit upon and/or within a believer usually at salvation but often after the person is saved. Actually it is likely that many people accept Jesus Christ intellectual but do take some time to make him fully the personal lord of their life next. We should be careful to not confuse Baptism in the Holy Spirit with the various other ministries of the Holy Spirit.

The filling of the Holy Spirit is how He empowers and controls us (Acts 4:31; Ephesians 5:18). The indwelling of the Holy Spirit is God the Holy Spirit taking up permanent residence in our lives (John 14:17; Romans 8:9-11; 1 Corinthians 3:16; 6:19; 1 John 4:4). The sealing of the Holy Spirit is God marking us as His permanent possession (Ephesians 1:13-14). Baptism in the Holy Spirit is related to these other ministries of the Holy Spirit, but at the same time, it is separate from them. Have you been Baptized with the Holy Spirit? If you’ve repented of your sins and asked Christ to be your Lord and Master, then He responds with the Baptism of the Holy Spirit, and the gifts of the Holy Spirit

(1 Cor 12:8 KJV) For to one is given by the Spirit the word of wisdom; to another the word of knowledge by the same Spirit;

(2 Cor 3:18 KJV) But we all, with open face beholding as in a glass the glory of the Lord, are changed into the same image from glory to glory, even as by the Spirit of the Lord.

(1 Matt 3:24 KJV) And he that keepeth his commandments dwelleth in him, and he in him. And hereby we know that he abideth in us, by the Spirit which he hath given us.

“Do not leave Jerusalem, but wait for the gift my Father promised, which you have heard me speak about. For John baptized with water (hudati), but in a few days you will be baptized with the Holy Spirit (en pneumati hagio)…. But you will receive power (dunamis) when the Holy Spirit comes on (epiechomai) you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.” (Acts 1:4, 5, 8; see 11:15-16)

(Rev 3:15 KJV) I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot: I would thou wert cold or hot. 16 So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth. .

Covet to prophesy, and forbid not to speak with tongues.

wherefore

Matthew 3:11 I indeed baptize you with water unto repentance: but he that comes after me is mightier than I, whose shoes I am not worthy to bear: he shall baptize you with the Holy Spirit, and with fire:

Have you yourself wondered why some people really go really nuts, bonkers when you mention the word Holy Spirit.. I have! It is related to their false  fear of admitting and confessing their sins, of their own repentance.

Acts 2:38   Peter replied, “Repent and be baptized, every one of you, in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins. And you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit. 39 The promise is for you and your children and for all who are far off—for all whom the Lord our God will call.”;

1 Corinthians 14:39 Wherefore, brethren, covet to prophesy, and forbid not to speak with tongues.

We do not emphasize the baptism in the Spirit and speaking in tongues to a greater extent than all of the other essential New testament doctrines such as the New Birth from Above (salvation), dying to self, the Lordship of Jesus Christ,  and water baptism. All the teachings of the New Testament even about  tongues have  the same priority as it is in Scripture.

There are now many, many Christians who give testimony to a new, dynamic and personal, life-changing experiences as a result of their  relationship with the Holy Spirit while other Professing Christians  they still do not have any real encounter and experience of the Holy Spirit, and why is that? 

When any biblical truths, even such as praying in tongues,  fall into obscurity and neglect, too many people offer false explanations, false excuses for it instead of reviving the truths in their life.

The disciples who follow Jesus were born again. They had come to a vibrant and zealous faith in Christ, to the point that they were willing to give their lives for him. They had witnessed Christ’s authority, practiced some of his authority in expelling demons and healing people. They witnessed his resurrection and ascension. Yet it was to these disciples, clearly born again, that Jesus said

“Do not leave Jerusalem, but wait for the gift my Father promised, which you have heard me speak about.  For John baptized with water, but in a few days you will be baptized with the Holy Spirit.”

So  certainly   being baptized by the Holy Spirit is different from spiritual rebirth, and different from baptism by water, and it is  distinct from being baptized into the body of Christ.

While God’s  gifts to men now are supernatural both in source and operation, they still do require the personal willingness  and having an  obedient hearts through which they the gifts might find expression. The believer must (1) have a clear understanding of the biblical base for promised gifts; (2) be touched in his heart with a desire for the gifts to flow; (3) be willing to submit to the inner sense that the Spirit is seeking expression; and (4) offer to the Holy Spirit his heart, emotions, will, and voice by which those gifts may operate. The key is obedient availability coupled with a sincere desire to please God.

 Jesus now had commanded His disciples to wait in Jerusalem until they had been “clothed with power from on high” (Luke 24:49). It was not until they had placed themselves at the Spirit’s disposal that they were “filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak in other tongues as the Spirit enabled them” (Acts 2:4).Now on the Day of Pentecost the Holy Spirit fell upon the assembled believers as per the Bible and and “all of them were filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak in other tongues” (Acts 2:4). Later, as Peter was preaching at the house of Cornelius, “the Holy Spirit came on all who heard the message” and they were “speaking in tongues and praising God” (Acts 10:44, 46). Again, as the apostle Paul was ministering to the Ephesian disciples, “the Holy Spirit came on them, and they spoke in tongues and prophesied” (Acts 19:6). It is evident also that Paul himself was filled with the Holy Spirit (Acts 9:17) and spoke in tongues (1 Corinthians 14:18). These Scriptures clearly show that speaking in tongues is the initial physical evidence of being baptized in the Holy Spirit.  When the early believers were filled, they spoke in other tongues, and the same holds true today. Millions of believers worldwide share the exact testimony: when they initially were baptized in the Holy Spirit they spoke in unknown tongues. This is the truth which Pentecostals consistently affirm. The prophecy of Joel 2:28, 29, cited by Peter in Acts 2:16, 17, links today’s Spirit-filled believers with those who were filled with the Spirit on the Day of Pentecost. The Spirit’s fullness, evidenced initially by the phenomenon of speaking in other tongues, is the common experience all celebrate with joy. 

Not just these teachings of Jesus and the Apostles now but  why also is the baptism of the holy spirit so neglected, opposed?The devil discourages this firstly, uses people to do it as well. All who are hungry for the “filling” should be encouraged to trust the Lord for the overflowing evidence of that “filling”; namely, speaking in other tongues. For they do not know what they are really missing here. The speaking in tongues  is a precious promise written in God’s Word and an be now  fulfilled in all of our lives. To ignore it is to miss a great blessing and come short of God’s will for your life as set forth in the  the New Testament pattern.   Speaking in tongues is but the initial evidence and is to be followed by all the evidences of Christlikeness that mark a consistent Spirit-filled life.

1 Corinthians 14: 1    Follow after charity, and desire spiritual gifts, but rather that ye may prophesy. 2    For he that speaketh in an unknown tongue speaketh not unto men, but unto God: for no man understandeth him; howbeit in the spirit he speaketh mysteries. 3    But he that prophesieth speaketh unto men to edification, and exhortation, and comfort. 4    He that speaketh in an unknown tongue edifieth himself; but he that prophesieth edifieth the church  5    I would that ye all spake with tongues, but rather that ye prophesied: for greater is he that prophesieth than he that speaketh with tongues, except he interpret, that the church may receive edifying. 6    Now, brethren, if I come unto you speaking with tongues, what shall I profit you, except I shall speak to you either by revelation, or by knowledge, or by prophesying, or by doctrine?7    And even things without life giving sound, whether pipe or harp, except they give a distinction in the sounds, how shall it be known what is piped or harped?8    For if the trumpet give an uncertain sound, who shall prepare himself to the battle?9    So likewise ye, except ye utter by the tongue words easy to be understood, how shall it be known what is spoken? for ye shall speak into the air.10    There are, it may be, so many kinds of voices in the world, and none of them is without signification.  11    Therefore if I know not the meaning of the voice, I shall be unto him that speaketh a barbarian, and he that speaketh shall be a barbarian unto me.12    Even so ye, forasmuch as ye are zealous of spiritual gifts, seek that ye may excel to the edifying of the church.13    Wherefore let him that speaketh in an unknown tongue pray that he may interpret.14    For if I pray in an unknown tongue, my spirit prayeth, but my understanding is unfruitful.15    What is it then? I will pray with the spirit, and I will pray with the understanding also: I will sing with the spirit, and I will sing with the understanding also.16    Else when thou shalt bless with the spirit, how shall he that occupieth the room of the unlearned say Amen at thy giving of thanks, seeing he understandeth not what thou sayest?

 Speaking in tongues is both a  personal even, praying in tongues but also a public event.. The purpose of tongues with interpretation in public is twofold. One purpose is to provide a sign for unbelievers that they might believe. The other purpose is to edify the church body. Tongues with interpretation declares the mighty works of God, exalts His name, and prompts the believers to worship Him in spirit and in truth. It also explains and calls for commitment to the church’s present  mission, and neither of these gifts have even ceased in operation these last days now too..

Also what is the advantage of “praying in tongues” in one’s private prayer life?

There are at least four uses or purposes of unknown tongues, according to the New Testament: (1) as the initial evidence of the baptism in the Holy Spirit (Acts 2:4; 10:46; 19:6); (2) as a gift to edify the church when the tongues are interpreted (1 Corinthians 12:10); (3) as a sign for unbelievers that they might believe (1 Corinthians 14:22); and (4) as a God-given provision for effective prayer and praise (1 Corinthians 14:2, 14). In all these cases, tongues is the same in essence, but different in purpose.

Praying in tongues during private devotions is an additional ministry of the Holy Spirit. Many believers today testify that praying in tongues greatly enriches their spiritual lives. The limitations of intellect are overcome as the Holy Spirit quickens the human spirit in glorious expressions of worship and adoration. The quandary of limited vocabulary and the inability to express feelings and concerns of the soul disappear as a Spirit-imparted language flows out from the heart. It is as if heaven and earth, time and eternity, God and man all compress together in a glorious act of worship.

Also since the  Holy Spirit has authentically inspired next the interpretation of the tongues now , the revelations given will never contradict the teachings of the Bible. If the interpretation is contrary to Scripture, it is out of order and must be ruled so. The Bible is the measure by which all speaking in tongues  utterances as well must be judged. While   spiritual gifts are divine in their origin, but they are entrusted to people, and they must operate in a way that is consistent with biblical teaching  1 Corinthians 14:40 Let all things be done decently and in order.

.

Many even religious persons, people are falsely trying to reach Heaven, serve God in their own efforts neglect God’s provisions for them, God’s spiritual gifts. if you oppose tongues you are not even a Christian led by the holy Spirit. and that is your main problem still.. not being filled with the Holy Spirit.. You do need to learn what sins are holding you back from this… http://postedat.wordpress.com/2013/09/17/so-why-is-it-you-do-not-pray-in-tongues/

.

”Many of you are deceived by your own religious leaders because you will not seek after JESUS for yourselves, like JESUS commanded you to do so!
Many of you are deceived because you do not seek after JESUS with your whole heart, mind, and soul, that you might know GOD for yourself through the revelation knowledge of JESUS CHRIST for yourself!   http://postedat.wordpress.com/2013/09/03/many-of-you-are-deceived-because/
.
Now we all do really have freedom of religion, freedom of choice, freedom of speech, the right to be heard now as well.. I clearly do believe in the right of everyone to speak, to speak out as well, and to be equally heard by all, so we can all judge what has been said if it is appropriate and we can next corresponding act upon it, even in the church, in the government, on the internet now too. http://anyonecare.wordpress.com/2013/09/17/what-part-about-free-speech-do-you-not-understand/

You are still falsely trying to earn favor with God by observing certain days or months or seasons or years. I fear for you as you are still going to Hell..  God, Jesus wants more then just your Lip service on  Sunday or your Wednesday evening only prayers or your 3 minute daily  prayer and a few versus of the bible when you have time as it has to be a full time total committed relationship with him or it ain’t real at all as G god is calling for a full time relationship with him and for us to quit being liars, false  pretend worshipers and become full time 24/7 soldiers of Jesus Christ only too.. Nothing else will do.. Romans 12:1 I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service.

.

Undeniably too Acts 2:4 And they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and (all)  began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance.

.

There are many fools, even ignorant Christians who think that they can merely obtain God’s favor by keeping any of the laws of the Old Testament.. these deceived persons all fail to realize that the Old Testament were written to the Jews only, not to any gentiles.. Now today all of these over 465 old testament inapplicable laws are redundant, obsolete even to all of the Jews.. Further more keeping any of these laws does not insure any personal entrance into heaven.. All Jewish and non Jewish persons have to keep only these laws – to be filled with the Holy Spirit and to obey the Holy Spirit of Jesus Christ

.

Matthew 11:13 For all the prophets and the law prophesied until John. Christ did not suggest here that the binding nature of the law of Moses would remain forever in effect

.

God who commanded the laws, not just for Judah, but for all Israel, Next That same God, Jesus Christ, says unmistakably: Even if you keep the whole or most of the laws you still will go to hell if Jesus Christ is not your Lord and Savior and Baptizer of the Holy spirit firstly Keeping God’s laws and living righteously has it’s reward, but that still does not mean we have to keep every law mentioned in the old testament that were applicable only to the Jews now even…. Why, then, was the law given? It was given alongside the promise to show the (Jewish) people their sins. But the law was designed to last only until the coming of the child who was promised. Galatians 3:19 Before the way of Christ was available to the Jews the law, the Old testament laws were there guardian until Christ came; it protected them until they and we could be made right with God through faith in the finished work of Jesus Christ. And now that this faith has come or is available to all,, we no longer need the Old Testament, the law as any of our guardian.as per Galatians 3:23-25

.

The old system under the law of Moses was only a shadow, a dim preview of the good things to come, not the good things themselves. Hebrews 10:1

.

When God speaks of a “new” covenant, it means that he has made the first one obsolete. It is now out of date and will soon disappear. Hebrews 8:13

.

When I was with the Jews, I lived like a Jew to bring the Jews to Christ. When I was with those who follow the Jewish law, I too lived under that law. Even though I am not subject to the law, I did this so I could bring to Christ those who are under the law. When I am with the Gentiles who do not follow the Jewish law, I too live apart from that law so I can bring them to Christ. But I do not ignore the law of God; I obey the law of Christ.1 Corinthians 9:20-21:

.

Now coming back to the fact there are so many lying preachers who distort the Bible, take isolated verses to try to still lead you back to Hell..

.

God who commanded the laws, not just for Judah, but for all Israel, Next That same God, Jesus Christ, said unmistakably that even if you keep the whole or most of the laws you still will go to hell if Jesus Christ is not your Lord and Savior and Baptizer of the Holy spirit firstly Keeping God’s laws and living righteously has it’s reward, but that still does not mean we have to keep every law mentioned in the old testament that were applicable only to the Jews now even… The false, perverse Law keepers always try to justify their even 10 commandment keeping by Matt. 5:17-19. And James is very clear that if we’re going to keep the Mosaic law, we have to keep all of the laws [James 2:10]

.

Now compare “Do not think that I came to destroy the Law or the Prophets. I did not come to destroy but to fulfill. For assuredly, I say to you, till heaven and earth pass away, one jot or one tittle will by no means pass from the law till all is fulfilled.” (Matthew 5:17-18) with “For He Himself is our peace, who made both groups into one, and broke down the barrier of the dividing wall, 15 by abolishing in His flesh the enmity, which is the Law of commandments contained in ordinances, that in Himself He might make the two into one new man, thus establishing peace.” (Eph. 2:14-15),

.

“Of special significance in this study is the word rendered “abolish.” It translates the Greek term kataluo, literally meaning “to loosen down.” The word is found seventeen times in the New Testament. It is used, for example, of the destruction of the Jewish temple by the Romans (Matthew 26:61; 27:40; Acts 6:14), and of the dissolving of the human body at death (2 Corinthians 5:1). The term can carry the extended meaning of “to overthrow,” i.e., “to render vain, deprive of success.” In classical Greek, it was used in connection with institutions, laws, etc., to convey the idea of “to invalidate.””

.

And while the apostle Paul certifies that “the law is holy, and the commandment holy and just and good” (Romans 7:12), we also do still know as per Romans 7: “1 Know ye not, brethren, (for I speak to them that know the law,) how that the law hath dominion over a man as long as he liveth? 2 For the woman which hath an husband is bound by the law to her husband so long as he liveth; but if the husband be dead, she is loosed from the law of her husband. 3 So then if, while her husband liveth, she be married to another man, she shall be called an adulteress: but if her husband be dead, she is free from that law; so that she is no adulteress, though she be married to another man. 4 Wherefore, my brethren, ye also are become dead to the law by the body of Christ; that ye should be married to another, even to him who is raised from the dead, that we should bring forth fruit unto God.

.

How much more clearer can it be , we are adulterers if we serve the law, since we are dead to the law once we have been married to Jesus Christ.. He Jesus Christ had fulfill the law as Moses had written it. Once He died and rose again He ratified what was needed to be kept under the law of Christ, the laws of the Holy Spirit (not Moses). This law was either given directly by Jesus or through the apostles after the resurrection where they all were filled with the Holy Spirit in the Book of Acts. Pentecost is not an option but mandatory for all Christians.

.

Jesus did not come to destroy the law but to fulfill it. To have it put aside. We are under the new law of Christ and NOT under the law of Moses. Some of the Old Testament laws are ratified in the new covenant and most are not. Jesus himself had removed the requirement of having to follow the Law in order to please God, he even had established justification by faith, and thereby united both Jew and Gentile into one group in Christ. This is when Paul says in verse 15 that he abolished in his flesh the enmity which is the law of commandments in ordinances. The Law was that which separated Jew from Gentile and since it has been fulfilled in Christ, it is no longer something that would separate Jew and Gentile. Both Jews and Gentiles can be one, Christians the Church now instead. The word “fulfill” which many abuse, it does not mean to continue or reinforce. Matthew consistently used the word fulfill in a specific manner, once something is fulfilled there is not a need for any future fulfillment. Now fulfilled all mean a completion of something that is said. That something was prophesied or written and he fulfilled it or made it happen, bringing it to its end, having it come to pass, no longer applicable commandments, all he old testament laws.. 613 of them now too.. As we can see, these 613 commands were temporary and only for a certain time and next many of the Old Testament laws are given new meaning in the New Testament. Whatever came through the cross and taught by the apostles were the new applicable teachings for the Church. Jesus did not tell the disciples not to sacrifice animals during this time they were still under the law before his resurrection. Its obvious after he died the Temple veil was rent and his sacrifice was made once for all, they no longer had to do continue this approach. Mt.28 states to observe all things that I have commanded you it means and include also what he spoke to the disciples after His resurrection, as preached by the Apostles too now.. “The Old Testament Covenant was never intended to be permanent. (Gal.3:17-18, 22-25) Jesus used two examples in a parable to show the new is not to be joined with the old, (Luke 5:36-39) V.36 “No one puts a piece from a new garment on an old one; otherwise the new makes a tear, and also the piece that was taken out of the new does not match the old.”Heb.8:13 “In that He says “a New Covenant,” He has made the first one obsolete…”. Paul describes the Mosaic covenant in 2 Cor.3: 7 the HOLY SPIRIT tells us, is “passing away” and is “abolished” (verses 11,13), in its place we have the “ministry of the Spirit” and “the ministry of righteousness” (verses 8,9).” For “the life which I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself for me. I do not set aside the grace of God; for if righteousness comes through the law, then Christ died in vain.”

.

Rom 3:19-20: “Now we know that whatever the law says, it says to those who are under the law, that every mouth may be stopped, and all the world may become guilty before God. Therefore by the deeds of the law no flesh will be justified in His sight, for by the law is the knowledge of sin.” Christ fulfilled, cancelled, done away with the demands of the Mosaic law, which called for perfect obedience under threat of a “curse” (see Galatians 3:10, 13).

.

You are trying to earn favor with God by observing certain days or months or seasons or years. I fear for you. Perhaps all my hard work with you was for nothing. Dear brothers and sisters, I plead with you to live as I do in freedom from these things, for I have become like you Gentiles—free from those laws. Galatians 4:10-12 So don’t let anyone condemn you for what you eat or drink, or for not celebrating certain holy days or new moon ceremonies or Sabbaths. For these rules are only shadows of the reality yet to come. And Christ himself is that reality. Colossians 2:16-17

.

So again the Old Covenant is not our covenant, and the Old Testament law is not our law. This New Covenant in Christ fulfilled the Old Covenant (and its laws and sacrifices) and superseded it. All followers of Christ—Jews and Gentiles—are New Covenant people of God. We’ve been freed from the Old Covenant law and are no longer under its jurisdiction.

.

Now if Christ fulfilled all the law why do some try to bring people back under its bondage? They are Bible ignorant or imposter Christians perverse slave drivers , therefore their confusion continues. many have a tendency to open the Bible anywhere and, because it’s all God’s Word, assume falsely that everything applies to us all and this causes a lot of confusion and error too.
.
It is still an undeniable fact that the majority of professing Christians have not let the Holy Spirit teach them on the truths found in the Bible as they have been falsely preoccupied with the things of this world rather, so now rather they have mostly and falsely believed on the false teaching of others, those others who often have false hidden agendas including power trips.. Today there is still a great need for all Christians to have biblical discernment and discrimination. Many professing Christians remain biblically illiterate and spiritually gullible. They lazily still tend naively accept almost any teaching as truth. and Just because it is even a Baptist teaching does not necessarily mean it is a biblical teaching. We are still all “test the spirits” and the chief measuring stick is the Scripture itself! Not academic degrees, or Ministerial titles. God’s truth is still absolute. It is immutable. It never changes. Amazing how many of the false Christians doctrines are new, developed within the last 500 years only too..

.
Pentecostal Christian groups today are teaching rightfully that after a believer has been saved they have an experience in which they receive the Baptism of the Holy Spirit accompanied by the “speaking in tongues” phenomena. It is often called a “second blessing” in which a believer is empowered by the Holy Spirit and that: “receiving the Baptism of the Holy Spirit is always accompanied by speaking in tongues”.

.

Acts 1:5. “for John truly baptized with water, but you shall be baptized with the Holy Spirit not many days from now.”

.

Matthew 3:11. “I indeed baptize you with water unto repentance, but He who is coming after me is mightier than I, whose sandals I am not worthy to carry. He will baptize you with the Holy Spirit and fire.” John the Baptist, was promising that when the Messiah came He would baptize them with the Holy Spirit. It was a promise of the indwelling of the Spirit of God. This was confirmed by Peter in Acts 11:16 where everyone who was baptized with the Holy Spirit was also undeniably also speaking in tongues. A truth that too many liars try to deny, explain away rather.

.

Acts 11:16. “Then I remembered the word of the Lord, how He said, `John indeed baptized with water, but you shall be baptized with the Holy Spirit.”

1 Thess.5:20-22, “Do not despise prophecies. Test all things; hold fast what is good.”

Jesus warned in Mt.7:15-16, “Beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravenous wolves. You will know them by their fruits…”

Apostle Paul warned the Ephesian elders in Acts 20:29, “For I know this, that after my departure savage wolves will come in among you, not sparing the flock.”

Apostle Peter also offered this warning in 2 Pet.2:1, “But there were also false prophets among the people, even as there will be false teachers among you, who will secretly bring in destructive heresies, even denying the Lord who bought them, and bring on themselves swift destruction.”

.

Today there is still a great need for biblical discernment and discrimination. Many believers remain biblically illiterate and spiritually gullible. They naively accept any teaching as truth.

.

11. In Eph.4:14, Paul says that a sure sign of spiritual immaturity is “tossed to and fro and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the trickery of men, in the cunning craftiness of deceitful plotting.”

.
 1 John 4: 1 Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world. 2 Hereby know ye the Spirit of God: Every spirit that confesseth that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is of God: 3 And every spirit that confesseth not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is not of God: and this is that spirit of antichrist, whereof ye have heard that it should come; and even now already is it in the world. 4 Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world. 5 They are of the world: therefore speak they of the world, and the world heareth them. 6 We are of God: he that knoweth God heareth us; he that is not of God heareth not us. Hereby know we the spirit of truth, and the spirit of error.

.

Apostle John here teaches we must discriminate doctrinally. We must “test the spirits.” We must learn to discern between “the spirit of truth and the spirit of error as You cannot love until you reject hatred. You cannot pursue righteousness until you abandon evil..

.

Why are people falling for  false teachings? Because they are not reading or understanding their Bibles! When it comes to knowing our Bible, not many know what is in the Bible or have a clear understanding of what it is saying. One reason may be because there are too many interpretations and arguments about what the Word of God says. Another reason may be that we put too much trust on who is delivering the message without reading it for ourselves. We rely on our pastors and spiritual leaders to “feed” us the Word, and trust them blindly to do so but in reality, many have a different agenda and God is not in it, so people are being deceived. That is why it is important to pray, ask the Holy Spirit himself to lead and guide you as you  read and study the Holy Scriptures, to understand the Word of God and keep it stored in your heart so that you would not be deceived. You will then be able to discern if what is coming out their mouths is in alignment with God’s Word, if it is not, then it is false teaching. Do not just rely on what your spiritual leaders or anyone (including myself) is telling you,check it and  read it still always for yourselves.

.

I get a chuckle, a big laugh of those persons who claim they are experts on the Baptism of the Holy Spirit and speaking in tongues when they have never even experienced them. They instead of referring you to what the the Bible actually says about it all they tend to refer you elsewhere falsely too.Many false Bible teachers, expositors, dispensational liars, falsely Pentecostal bashers today they falsely do not take the Bible, the actual statements of the Biblical accounts of the Baptism of the Holy Spirit at face value but still falsely try by playing on words, distorting the scriptures, by adding to it, or try to diminish or take away the Baptism of the Holy Spirit place, importance.

.

Don Basham, a leading Charismatic writer , rightfully says that this: “. . . experience is a second encounter with God (the first is conversion) in which the Christian begins to receive the supernatural power of the Holy Spirit into his life.”.

.

Many Charismatics and all Pentecostals teach that this experience usually comes when one prays for the Baptism of the Holy Spirit. It is a very definite experience in which the person experiences the presence of the Holy Spirit. The Biblical evidence or sign that a person has received the Holy Spirit is authenticated by that person speaking in tongues. Basham describes the experience as follows: ” But even if you feel nothing, rest quietly in the confidence that the Holy Spirit is now coming upon you in power and is about to furnish you with a new language of prayer and praise to God.”

.

After having this experience they teach “they are then empowered” by the Holy Spirit. Basham rigtfully further states: “The average Christian, although truly professing Christ, operates largely on his own power, making his own decisions, living by his own strength, and controlling his own life. But through the baptism of the Holy Spirit the Christian is empowered out of this natural realm into a realm where he can begin to experience the supernatural gifts and powers of God’s Holy Spirit.”

.

The Baptism of the Holy Spirit experience often comes when others who have had the experience, lay hands on the person seeking the Baptism of the Holy Spirit.

.

Again with the laying on of hands one receives the Baptism of the Holy Spirit, and next they will speak in tongues and which is Biblical the “evidence” that they have received the Baptism of the Holy Spirit.

.

In summary the Baptism of the Holy Spirit does not necessarily happen when a person is saved because most people tend to make a partial acceptance of Jesus Christ, an intellectual acceptance, see only their need of personal salvation for sin and death but have not make Jesus Christ the lord of their life yet.. .

.

It should be understood that in each of the accounts of the Baptism of the Holy Spirit coming upon believers in the Book of Acts those who received the Baptism of the Holy Spirit they were already even believers In Jesus Christ, saved persons..

Stay with what the Bible says, the Holy Spirit teachers you and not mere men and women

The word of God says the Holy Spirit reveals the deep things of God to us.

I Corinthians 2:10 But God hath revealed them unto us by his Spirit: for the Spirit searcheth all things, yea, the deep things of God.

I am not surprised that many   do not talk about or preach about the baptism of the holy spirit, speaking in tongues, spiritual gifts even because they really do not have the holy spirit.

God is not a part of your life he is your whole life.

“For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so them also which sleep in Jesus will God bring with him.  For this we say unto you by the word of the Lord, that we which are alive and remain unto the coming of the Lord shall not prevent them which are asleep.  For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first:  Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord.  Wherefore comfort one another with these words.” 1Th 4:14-18  

.

God is not a part of your life he is your whole life.
.
“And grieve not the Holy Spirit of God, whereby ye are sealed unto the day of redemption Let all bitterness, and wrath, and anger, and clamour, and evil speaking, be put away from you, with all malice: Eph 4:30-1
.
Psa 7:11  God judgeth the righteous, and God is angry with the wicked every day.
Psa 7:12  If he turn not, he will whet his sword; he hath bent his bow, and made it ready.
Psa 7:13  He hath also prepared for him the instruments of death; he ordaineth his arrows against the persecutors.
Psa 7:14  Behold, he travaileth with iniquity, and hath conceived mischief, and brought forth falsehood.
Psa 7:15  He made a pit, and digged it, and is fallen into the ditch which he made.
Psa 7:16  His mischief shall return upon his own head, and his violent dealing shall come down upon his own pate.
.
When I commit a significant sin, my loving heavenly father  is angry with me and he is grieved, but he is angry and he sins not, for he is angry against my sin. So do not trouble him, do not cause him to mourn. All sin is serious, and to some degree challenges and attacks the character and authority of God.
.
So now what sin a is it here that realy  troubles him so much? that you have treated him harshly and ungratefully.
.
Six sins are specifically identified as sins against the Holy Spirit, and they are blaspheming, lying or tempting, resisting or striving with, vexing or grieving, and quenching the Holy Spirit. The key to not sinning against the Holy Spirit, God is to obey God and his  word.
.
“What specifically does it mean to grieve / quench the Holy Spirit?” the Holy Spirit is a fire dwelling in each believer. Luke 24:32  And they said one to another, Did not our heart burn within us, while he talked with us by the way, and while he opened to us the scriptures?  When “quench” is used in Scripture, it is speaking of suppressing the fire of the holy spirit. We grieve the Spirit by living like the pagans  Ephesians (4:17-19), by lying (4:25), by being angry (4:26-27), by stealing (4:28), by cursing (4:29), by being bitter (4:31), by being unforgiving (4:32), and by being sexually immoral (5:3-5).
.
To grieve the Spirit is to act out in a sinful manner, whether it is in thought only or in both thought and deed. It happen when a believer sins knowingly against God and follows his or her own worldly desires. A betrayal of love and relationship . An ungrateful return for infinite lovingkindness!
.
When you grieve God, the Holy Spirit  the miraculous blessings of God stops flowing in your life. Other Results of Grieving the Holy Spirit a Lose of the sense of God’s love, joy, peace, assurance and intimacy with God as Father. No power any more over the flesh. No Conviction of sin.
.
The danger of continuing to grieve the Holy Spirit. The dependence on false substitutes now, next instead having, following after  the real thing. So we should not grieve or quench the Holy Spirit by refusing to follow His leading.
.

The evangelical Plymouth Brethren and the  Baptists do  tend to belive a false, overly simplified Gospel and not the true, real of Jesus Christ that includes being filled with the Holy Spirit

.

Mal 2:16 For the LORD, the God of Israel, saith that he hateth putting away: for one covereth violence with his garment, saith the LORD of hosts: therefore take heed to your spirit, that ye deal not treacherously. 17 Ye have wearied the LORD with your words. Yet ye say, Wherein have we wearied him? When ye say, Every one that doeth evil is good in the sight of the LORD, and he delighteth in them; or, Where is the God of judgment?.

.

God hates divorces, marital or relationship ones too it includes unforgiveness now and all people who do not forgive go to Hell

.

SOME REALY STUPID PERSONS FALSELY DO EVEN THINK THEY CAN DIVORCE THE HOLY SPIRIT NOW AS WELL..

.

NOW I TOO DO DISLIKE IT WHEN WHEN PROFESSING CHRISTIANS DIVORCE YOU BECAUSE NOW YOU TELL THEM SOME UGLY TRUTH AND AS IF THAT WILL NEXT DENY THE REALITY, THE TRUTH FOR THEM. EVEN OSTRICHES CAN FACE NEGATIVE PERSONAL CONSEQUENCES IF THEY BURY THEIR HEAD IN THE SAND.

.

DO THEY THESE FALSE OTHERS REALY BELIEVE NOW THE WORD OF GOD JESUS IF THEY NOW EVEN DO LEAVE OUT THE HOLY SPIRIT? NO THEY ARE STILL PRETENDERS, LIARS, IMPOSTERS, DEMONIC RATHER!

.

I RIGHTFULLY DO NOT BELIEVE IN A WATERED DOWN VERSION, GOSPEL PRESENTATION, a censored false evangelical Gospel now and not the Full Gospel of Jesus Christ. SUCH BAD PRESENTATIONS where they did not mention EVEN anything about the Gifts of the Holy Spirit, or the Anointing, Baptism of the Holy Spirit, cause they for sure are not HOLY SPIRIT filled even , WHY WAS THAT NOW?

.

NOW THE REALITY IS THAT SOME FOOLS DO EVEN HERE TRIED TO PREACH AN ABSURD ANOTHER JESUS GOSPEL OF
1: JESUS LIVING WITHOUT THE HOLY SPIRIT OR
2: SAYING THAT CHRISTIANS CAN BE SPIRITUAL WITHOUT THE HOLY SPIRIT OR
3: THAT ALL CHRISTIANS DO NOT HAVE TO HAVE AN ANOINTING, THE BAPTISM OF THE HOLY SPIRIT, OR THE HOLY SPIRIT EMPOWERINGS
4:OR IMAGINE ONE PREACHING A WHOLE SERMON WITHOUT MENTIONING THE HOLY SPIRIT, DELIVERANCE.. BUT INCLUDING THE DEVIL..
5: or one fool sayIng the Bible NOW replaces Jesus or the Holy Spirit..

.

Jude the brother of Jesus writes:1:16 These are grumblers, complainers, walking according to their own lusts; and they mouth great swelling words, flattering people to gain advantage. 1:17 But you, beloved, remember the words which were spoken before by the apostles of our Lord Jesus Christ: 1:18 how they told you that there would be mockers in the last time who would walk according to their own ungodly lusts. 1:19 These are sensual persons, who cause divisions, not having the Spirit. 1:20 But you, beloved, building yourselves up on your most holy faith, praying in the Holy Spirit,1:21 keep yourselves in the love of God, looking for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ unto eternal life.

If we follow after God we will be filled with the Holy Spirit

;
If we follow after God we will be filled with the Holy Spirit and continually live by the Holy Spirit doing all things by the Spirit and not at all by the flesh.
.
Eph 5:18 And be not drunk with wine, wherein is excess; but be filled with the Spirit; 19 Speaking to yourselves in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody in your heart to the Lord;
.
Jesus himself had said doing anything in the flesh was a total waste of time! “Without me you can do nothing
.
John 15:5 I am the vine, ye are the branches: He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me ye can do nothing. 6 If a man abide not in me, he is cast forth as a branch, and is withered; and men gather them, and cast them into the fire, and they are burned. 7 If ye abide in me, and my words abide in you, ye shall ask what ye will, and it shall be done unto you.

.
Jude the brother of Jesus writes:1:16 These are grumblers, complainers, walking according to their own lusts; and they mouth great swelling words, flattering people to gain advantage. 1:17 But you, beloved, remember the words which were spoken before by the apostles of our Lord Jesus Christ: 1:18 how they told you that there would be mockers in the last time who would walk according to their own ungodly lusts. 1:19 These are sensual persons, who cause divisions, not having the Spirit. 1:20 But you, beloved, building yourselves up on your most holy faith, praying in the Holy Spirit,1:21 keep yourselves in the love of God, looking for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ unto eternal life.
.
Apostle Paul said Galatians 5:19 Now the works of the flesh are evident, which are: adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lewdness, 5:20 idolatry, sorcery, hatred, contentions, jealousies, outbursts of wrath, selfish ambitions, dissensions, heresies, 5:21 envy, murders, drunkenness, revelries, and the like; of which I tell you beforehand, just as I also told you in time past, that those who practice such things will not inherit the kingdom of God. 5:22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, 5:23 gentleness, self-control. Against such there is no law.
.
Thus it’s a fact that many professing Christians still are no different in character or behavior over the pagan world. They lie, steal, cheat, deceive, fornicate, commit adultery, divorce and are obnoxious, proud, arrogant and lack true humility or meekness! A simple perusal of the New Testament clearly still does demonstrates that the most important thing in life after the new birth is to be filled with the Spirit and be used by the Spirit and changed by the Spirit through the word of God and through praying in the Spirit. Which is not a reality for most Christians.
.
Now the Church of Jesus Christ is mostly still too often in the “Dark Ages” when it comes to the Holy Spirit and being used by the Holy Spirit. And sadly here too most of the pastors tend to know only slightly a bit more than the sheep and they also don’t operate in the gifts of the Spirit. Most even professing Christian people still do rather lie to themselves that they are spirit filled even while they falsely deny they are still in the flesh, carnal, and even deny that all of their sins are not covered because admitting the truth, repenting of all their false values, wrong doings it next would take real work to deal with it all. They are fooling only themselves and not Jesus, God. God doesn’t promise to answer prayers in the flesh but He has promised to answer prayers in the Spirit because God Himself is praying through us and the Spirit cannot say no to Him. And He knows what the real problem is and what the solution to the problem!
.
So how in the world can you be changed and used by the Spirit if you reject the Holy Holy Spirit and His Baptism of the Spirit, evidence by tongues? You cannot!
.
“I had a lady tell me that you can be a Christian without speaking in tongues. But have you ever walked in a shoe that didn’t have tongues. It doesn’t work and you won’t get far. And if you walk in the flesh you will do and show the works of the flesh and you will not inherit the kingdom of Christ. You will not solve most the problems in life because you don’t have the mind of Christ and you cannot discern by the Spirit what is the real problem including the fact that behind many problems there are demons including causing sickness in the body of Christians. And of course you will not operate in the gifts of the Spirit is given to each one for the profit of all: 12:8 for to one is given the word of wisdom through the Spirit, to another the word of knowledge through the same Spirit, 12:9 to another faith by the same Spirit, to another gifts of healings by the same Spirit, 12:10 to another the working of miracles, to another prophecy, to another discerning of spirits, to another different kinds of tongues, to another the interpretation of tongues.( 1Corinthians). And of course you will not have most of your prayers answered because you are praying in the flesh, discerning things by the flesh and are not praying in the Spirit discerning things by the Spirit.”
.
SADLY MOST CHRISTIANS ARE IGNORANT STILL, THEY HAVEN’T GOT A CLUE EVEN OF WHAT IS REALLY HAPPENING AROUND THEM AND IN THEIR CHURCHES.

 

on the Baptism in the Holy Spirit: Overcoming Misunderstandings;
.
This isn’t the only misunderstanding that can keep people from receiving God’s gift. Confusion about the supernatural can also be a hindrance. I had been saved for about a month when some of the church leaders told me about the baptism in the Holy Spirit. I wanted His Power in my life; so they gathered around and told me to lift my hands. I lifted my hands. They told me to ask God for the Holy Spirit. I did. Then they said I would speak in tongues. So I got ready. Believe it or not, I left my mouth hanging open so God could speak in tongues whenever He was ready. I waited for God to grab my tongue and go for it because I wanted it to be God, not me. About half an hour went by and those guys got tired and my mouth got very dry. They finally said, “You have received the Holy Spirit. Go home now.”
.
I felt confused – like, what’s wrong with me? Other people receive, why don’t I? I told God,”Just fill me and let me speak in tongues, and I’ll read my Bible every day for the rest of my life. I’ll go to church every Sunday, and pray every day, and fast once a week!” (Ever try to con God? It doesn’t work!) I saw others who seemed to be so happy in their new experience with God after they had been baptized in the Holy Spirit and spoke in tongues. Why couldn’t I experience that, too?
.
Three months later while at college, I attended a little prayer meeting and got so desperate I told God, “Okay, this is it! This is Your last chance! If You don’t speak in tongues, I’m going to… This is it, God! C’mon now… I mean this is Your very last chance… Speak in tongues now or I’m going to!… Okay, I warned You!” I started to speak – and a new language just flowed out!
.
What is the benefit in speaking in tongues?
.
When you pray in English you are praying in the flesh but when you pray in tongues the Holy Spirit who is God is praying for you and through you and God always answers Himself. And the bible says Jude 1 20 But you, beloved, building yourselves up on your most holy faith, praying in the Holy Spirit,
.
My friend Gordon Williams a few years ago prayed for this white man to be Baptized in the Spirit and get his prayer language. And of course he got his prayer language which became part of his unusual ministry. The gentlemen became a pastor amongst the Cree Indians in Northern Saskatchewan but he has a problem in that he doesn’t know or understand the Cree language. However for God who has a sense of humor it’s no problem at all. The Pastors prayer language is Cree so he preaches on Sunday morning by speaking in tongues and then the people come forward to an altar call and get saved, healed and baptized with the Spirit. The irony is that the Pastor doesn’t know what he preached about!

ACTS 8:5 Then Philip went down to the city of Samaria and preached Christ to them. 8:6 And the multitudes with one accord heeded the things spoken by Philip, hearing and seeing the miracles which he did. 8:7 For unclean spirits, crying with a loud voice, came out of many who were possessed; and many who were paralyzed and lame were healed. 8:8 And there was great joy in that city
.
THERE IS NO REAL HOLY SPIRIT WITHOUT THE BAPTISM OF THE SPIRIT WITH TONGUES AND HENCE NO REAL MIRACLES SIGNS AND WONDERS ACTS 2:37 Now when they heard this, they were cut to the heart, and said to Peter and the rest of the apostles, “Men and brethren, what shall we do?” 2:38 Then Peter said to them, “Repent, and let every one of you be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins; and you shall receive the gift of the Holy Spirit. 2:39 “For the promise is to you and to your children, and to all who are afar off, as many as the Lord our God will call.” 2:40 And with many other words he testified and exhorted them, saying, “Be saved from this perverse generation.” 2:41 Then those who gladly received his word were baptized; and that day about three thousand souls were added to them. 2:42 And they continued steadfastly in the apostles’ doctrine and fellowship, in the breaking of bread, and in prayers. 2:43 Then fear came upon every soul, and many wonders and signs were done through the apostles.
.
The fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control (Galatians 5:22). The fruit of a religious spirit, by contrast, is self-righteousness, legalism, hypocrisy, a carnal view of Christianity, false humility, dead religious works, traditions, and instability. The purpose of the religious spirit is to stand in the way of God’s work and corrupt your perception of Jesus. It does this with self-righteousness, false humility, dead religious works, vain traditions, and carnal focus. If the religious spirit can’t discourage you spiritually, then it will try to conform you to its virtuous facade so that you will bear the fruit of religion instead of the fruit of the Spirit. For example, if you are on fire for God and praying effective fervent prayers that “availeth much” (James 5:16) then the religious spirit might try to get you wrapped up in praying nice, quiet “polite” prayers instead. Religion always tries to keep you quiet and if it is successful in its attempt to conform you to its nice, quiet, polite image, then you will lose your effectiveness as a Christian witness. The Holy Spirit doesn’t inhabit anything that is bound in dead religious form. The Church of Jesus Christ is built on lively stones (1 Peter 2:5).
.
Those who claim to have the Fruit of the Spirit but don’t operate in the Gifts of the Spirit because they do not have the Fruit of the Spirit. They try to imitate or copy what they think the Fruit of the Spirit is but they are never consistent and revert back and forth to and from the works of the flesh and their imitations of the Fruit of the Spirit. For instance, “agape love” requires that we forgive a person 490 times each day with the condition that we do not keep a record of wrongs. These people always fail in every one of the 9 sections of the Fruit of the Spirit. They quickly fall back into their old sinful patterns. The “signs following” (Mk. 16: 17 – 18) are the immediate proof of the Baptism of the Holy Spirit. If there is no proof, there is no Holy Spirit. They demonstrate their lack of the Holy Spirit in their own lives. Such people use all kinds of excuses to not receive the Gifts of the Holy Spirit, especially speaking in tongues which gives the person some control by the Holy Spirit to put the right words in a Christian mouth in order to witness and pray. To deny the necessity of any of the Gifts of the Holy Spirit is to prove that a person has neither the Gifts nor the Fruit of the Holy Spirit. As one of my professors at Seminary, who was also the Sr Pastor at 5th Avenue Presbyterian Church, New York City once said to his congregation on a Sunday morning service, “What is it about the Gifts of the Holy Spirit that you do not get. He only gives good gifts. And, the Gift of tongues is a good gift. So, get pass it or you’ll never be able to serve Jesus Christ faithfully.” He shocked a lot of people who thought that it was safe being a Presbyterian which they thought you could be without the Baptism of the Holy Spirit Unspiritual people or natural people (1 Cor. 2: 14) who are people who refuse to receive the Holy Spirit have no perseverance at all, in spite of all their talk. They know neither the Scriptures nor the power of God (Matt. 22: 29).
.
IF TONGUES WERE NOT PART OF THE CHRISTIAN FAITH WHY DID JUDE THE BROTHER OF JESUS WRITE JUDE 1:20 But you, beloved, building yourselves up on your most holy faith, praying in the Holy Spirit,
If you don’t pray in tongues you are not praying efficiently because in reality you are not praying the will of God but when the Holy Spirit prayers for and through you in tongues He prays the will of God and that is why Paul stated 1 Corinthians 14 5 I wish you all spoke with tongues, but even more that you prophesied; for he who prophesies is greater than he who speaks with tongues, unless indeed he interprets, that the church may receive edification. 1 Corinthians 14 14 For if I pray in a tongue, my spirit prays, but my understanding is unfruitful.15 What is the conclusion then? I will pray with the spirit, and I will also pray with the understanding. I will sing with the spirit, and I will also sing with the understanding.1
.
Did Jesus Christ lie when He said that authentic believers would speak in tongues demonstrating their salvation? Mark 16:15 And He said to them, “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature. 16:16 “He who believes and is baptized ( with the Spirit, not water) will be saved; but he who does not believe will be condemned. 16:17 “And these signs will follow those who believe: In My name they will cast out demons; they will speak with new tongues; 16:18 “they will take up serpents; and if they drink anything deadly, it will by no means hurt them; they will lay hands on the sick, and they will recover.” 16:19 So then, after the Lord had spoken to them, He was received up into heaven, and sat down at the right hand of God. 16:20 And they went out and preached everywhere, the Lord working with them and confirming the word through the accompanying signs. Amen. And who are the condemned ones that Jesus was talking about? Those who ignore His words?
.
YES A PERSONAL PENTECOST AND SALVATION ARE PART OF THE PACKAGE OF JESUS NEW EVERLASTING COVENANT
.
Acts 2:17 ‘And it shall come to pass in the last days, says God, That I will pour out of My Spirit on all flesh; Your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, Your young men shall see visions, Your old men shall dream dreams. 2:18 And on My menservants and on My maidservants I will pour out My Spirit in those days; And they shall prophesy. 2:19 I will show wonders in heaven above And signs in the earth beneath: Blood and fire and vapor of smoke. 2:20 The sun shall be turned into darkness, And the moon into blood, Before the coming of the great and awesome day of the LORD. 2:21 And it shall come to pass That whoever calls on the name of the LORD Shall be saved.’
.
The author of Hebrews explained that the FUNDAMENTAL (foundational) doctrines of Christ include Spirit-filled theology when the Holy Spirit included within the list the follow: Heb. 6:1 “Therefore, leaving the discussion of the elementary principles of Christ, let us go on to perfection, not laying again the foundation of repentance from dead works and of faith toward God, 2 of the doctrine of baptisms, of laying on of hands, of resurrection of the dead, and of eternal judgment.”
.
The word “baptisms” is plural, indicating the inclusion of the Baptism in the Holy Spirit (as well as Baptism in water and “baptized into Christ”). The doctrine of “laying on of hands” throughout the NT is ONLY expressed with a Spirit-filled theological context. Thus, the “elementary” doctrines of the faith include what we would call “Pentecostal doctrines.” Additionally, we find in Ephesians that the “Pentecostal” doctrine of five-fold ministry gifts (including prophets) are still in effect:
.
Eph 4:11 “And He Himself gave some to be apostles, some prophets, some evangelists, and some pastors and teachers, 12 for the equipping of the saints for the work of ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ, 13 till we all come to the unity of the faith and of the knowledge of the Son of God, to a perfect man, to the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ; 14 that we should no longer be children, tossed to and fro and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the trickery of men, in the cunning craftiness of deceitful plotting, 15 but, speaking the truth in love, may grow up in all things into Him who is the head—Christ— 16 from whom the whole body, joined and knit together by what every joint supplies, according to the effective working by which every part does its share, causes growth of the body for the edifying of itself in love.”
.
SOME SO CALLED CHRISTIANS BELIEVE APOSTLE PAUL WAS FALSE WHEN HE EXPECTED CHRISTIANS TO BE BAPTIZED WITH THE SPIRIT AND PRAY IN TONGUES AND PROPHESY?
ACTS 19:1 And it happened, while Apollos was at Corinth, that Paul, having passed through the upper regions, came to Ephesus. And finding some disciples 19:2 he said to them, “Did you receive the Holy Spirit when you believed?” So they said to him, “We have not so much as heard whether there is a Holy Spirit.” 19:3 And he said to them, “Into what then were you baptized?” So they said, “Into John’s baptism.” 19:4 Then Paul said, “John indeed baptized with a baptism of repentance, saying to the people that they should believe on Him who would come after him, that is, on Christ Jesus.” 19:5 When they heard this, they were baptized in the name of the Lord Jesus. 19:6 And when Paul had laid hands on them, the Holy Spirit came upon them, and they spoke with tongues and prophesied. 19:7 Now the men were about twelve in all.
.
AND APOSTLE PETER LIED AND WAS FALSE WHEN HE STATED IN ACTS THAT THE BASIS OF WATER BAPTISM WAS THAT PEOPLE SPOKE IN TONGUES?
.
ACTS 10:44 While Peter was still speaking these words, the Holy Spirit fell upon all those who heard the word. 10:45 And those of the circumcision who believed were astonished, as many as came with Peter, because the gift of the Holy Spirit had been poured out on the Gentiles also. 10:46 For they heard them speak with tongues and magnify God. Then Peter answered, 10:47 “Can anyone forbid water, that these should not be baptized who have received the Holy Spirit just as we have?” 10:48 And he commanded them to be baptized in the name of the Lord. Then they asked him to stay a few days.
.
Most of these hypocrites who turn around and accuse us of lacking “love” are unbelievers, they deny the glory of GOD manifesting in His children through (true)signs and wonders, they propagate cessationism and dead religion, having a form of godliness but DENYING its power. Jude called them up-rooted, twice dead, clouds without rain.
.
Of course JESUS CHRIST never lied, HE committed no sin.
.
Yes, there are some believers who have never received the Gift of Speaking in other national languages (tongues) and do not have the Gifts of the Holy Spirit. But, this prevents them from having the kind of relationship with Jesus and doing the ministry to which we are all called. There is no doubt that some people hear God speak to them occassionally. But we are supposed to hear Him speak to us everyday. When Jesus said to each of the Seven Churches in the Book of Revelation and commanded each of them, “He who has an ear let him hear what the Spirit says to the Churches” (Rev. 2: 7, 11, 17, 29; 3: 6, 13, 22), He is tell us to listen to the Holy Spirit every day. Hearing occassionally from God is not what He desires.
.
The Holy Spirit is supposed to speak to us every day. This is what the Greek says in John 16: 26: “he will teach you all things and bring to your remembrance all that I have said and done” every day. Not an occassional time when He can catch our attention. He, the Holy Spirit, is called Counsellor (Grk. defense attourney). He is supposed to be able to “guide you into all the truth” every day. Being able to hear from God is not supposed to be once in a while when He can catch our attention. No, all of that changes when we receive the authentic Baptism of the Holy Spirit with the “signs following” because speaking in tongues is God’s new communications system. Without the “signs” (Mk. 16: 17 – 18) we are not authentic believers (Greek definition defined in the Greek Lexicon (dictionary). To rely on some teacher who speaks in tongues is not adequate. People who reject what Jesus wants us to have are deceiving themselves.

It is easy for people to dismiss applying the “adding and taking away from the Book of Revelation” which is true. But, there is no dismissing what Paul said to the Corinthian Church who had two groups of people in the church who did not want to accept the Baptism of the Holy Spirit when he wrote “I have applied all this to myself and Apollos for your benefit brethren, that you may learn by us not to go beyond what is written, that none of you may be puffed up (full of pride) in favour of one against the other” (1 Cor. 4: 6). This means, in an other way, “don’t add or take away from the Scriptures”. When a person does this, they appear to be arrogant as if all the work that Jesus has done for us is not necessary, that in some way or another, I can pick and choose what I want out of the Scriptures, like some kind of a spiritual smagasbord.
.
Rejecting the any of the Gifts of the Holy Spirt, especially the Gift of speaking in national languages (Grk: 1 Cor. 12: 10) is at the least a subconscious or conscious rejection of God’s daily communications system so a person does not have to listen to what Jesus or our Heavenly Father wants to say to us every day through the Holy Spirit. This arrogance has led many people away from their “Normal Christian Life”. It reminds me of what happened when God led the Israelites out of Egypt and up to Mount Sinai. Remember, they did not want God to speak to them, “Go near, and hear all that the LORD (Yahweh) our God will say; and speak to us all that the LORD (Yahweh) will speak to you; and we will hear and do it” (Deut. 5: 27).
.
Our God wants to have a personal speaking relationship with us daily which He establishes with the Baptism of the Holy Spirit, and as described on the Day of Pentecost all 120 believers were filled with the Holy Spirit and had the proof of speaking in new languages. Rejecting, the good Gifts (Lk. 11: 13) of the Holy Spirit demonstrates that people are in rebellion against God’s will and they will use any excuse, like the Israelites, so they will not have to listen to Him everyday.
.
In the Corinthian Church were three groups of people: believers who were Baptized with the Holy Spirit and had the initial gift of speaking in tongues; unbelievers who were seeking for God; a group of new believers who rejected the Baptism of the Holy Spirit and Gifts of the Holy Spirit. These new believers did not have the Holy Spirit and they rejected the work of the Holy Spirit. The Greek word to describe them is “idiotes” singular, “idiotoi” plural from which we derive the word “idiot” or “idiots” which describes “one without professional knowledge, ignorant and common person” which is the same definition in Greek. These people are what Paul describes when he wrote, “The unspiritual (psychikos) man does not receive the gifts of the Spirit of God, for they are folly to him, and he is not able to understand them because they are spiritually (pneumatikos) discerned” (1 Cor. 2: 14). Unspiritual person is one who does not have the Holy Spirit and who betrays himself to others who do by his/her rejection of the the Holy Spirit and His Gifts (1 Cor. 12: 13; Rom. 12: 6 – 8; 1 Cor. 12: 8 – 10). Such people make their decisions by means of their human spirit/soul (psyche).

1 Tim 6:10 For the love of money is the root of all evil: which while some coveted after, they have erred from the faith, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows. 11 But thou, O man of God, flee these things; and follow after righteousness, godliness, faith, love, patience, meekness. 12 Fight the good fight of faith, lay hold on eternal life, whereunto thou art also called, and hast professed a good profession before many witnesses.
.
The word of God instructs us t
o walk by faith and not by sight and Proverbs 3:5 Trust in the LORD with all your heart, And lean not on your own understanding; 3:6 In all your ways acknowledge Him, And He shall direct your paths. 3:7 Do not be wise in your own eyes; Fear the LORD and depart from evil. 3:8 It will be health to your flesh, And strength to your bones. 3:9 Honor the LORD with your possessions, And with the firstfruits of all your increase; 3:10 So your barns will be filled with plenty, And your vats will overflow with new wine..

A Christian Missionary in 389 A.D. who at 60 years of age and for the next 60 years became an evangelist to Ireland stated St. Patrick stated: “The Lord hath given to me, though humble, the power of working miracles among a barbarous people, such as are not recorded to have been worked by the great Apostles; inasmuch as, in the Name of Our Lord Jesus Christ, I have raised from the dead bodies that have been buried many years; but I beseech you, let no one believe that for these or the like works I am to be at all equaled with the Apostles, or with any perfect man, since I am humble, and a sinner, and worthy only to be despised.”It has been reported that St. Patrick was a great missionary who became a bishop who converted a whole land from paganism, overturning the religion of the druids. He slept on rocks and prayed into the night. He consecrated 350 bishops, erected 700 churches, and ordained 5,000 priests. In less than 30 years the greater part of Ireland was Catholic; St. Patrick so consolidated it in the Christian faith that during the Protestant Revolt Ireland was almost unique in its preservation of the Faith. We have a man in 400 AD who operated in the gifts of the Spirit when many evangelicals falsely say that the gifts of the Spirit ceased by 100 A.D

Bud Press of Christian research writes :The Prophetic Movement is a dark, evil waste land teeming with false apostles, false prophets, hyper-heretics, false healers, and greedy, money-hungry con men and women, all of whom are overshadowed by Satan and his demonic forces. From the Prophetic Movement came doctrines of demons such as: man is a “god” or “God;” Jesus took on Satan’s nature, sinned, and had to be born again in hell; God is subject to man’s desires and wishes; visits to heaven and hell; fabricated and lying signs and wonders; extra-Biblical dreams, visions, and revelations; man-infested manifestations; prosperity poverty; and one-on-one encounters with angels, Old Testament prophets, New Testament apostles, and “Jesus Christ”. Many within the Prophetic Movement claim to live pain free, disease free, and even sin free (despite 1 John 1:8-10. Notice the word “we” in all three passages). But one thing they won’t live free from is old age and death.

The whole pseudo-ministry is just that false. They put on a religious show. As you have pointed out clearly: their god is money. They are enjoying the “strong delusion” that God has sent upon all that are condemned (2 Thess. 2: 11- 12) with “pretended signs and wonders” (2 Thess. 2: 9 – 10) and are living “with all wicked deception for those who are to perish, because they refused to love the truth and so be saved”. Again, they are wrong because they “know neither the Scriptures nor the power of God” (Matt. 22: 29). The other thing that these people, are overlooking is that they are blaspheming against the Holy Spirit (Matt. 12: 22 – 31; Mk. 3: 20 – 30; Lk. 11: 14 – 23). Like the Pharisees who attributed the work of the Holy Spirit to demons, they are attributing the works of demons to the Holy Spirit. They have revoked their own salvation but the Holy Spirit is convicting them and condemning them every day. Our God has never left an excuse for anybody to sin with immunity. And, that is what these people do who try to tell us that if somebody sins after receiving salvation, they were not really saved in the first place. Usually, these are the very people who have never received the Holy Spirit and who make up unscriptural excuses for people who had had their names removed from the Book of Life (Rev. 3: 5). They continuously experience the wrath of God (Rom. 1: 18). They are in a constant state of rebellion (Is. 15: 23). They indulge in the works of the flesh (Gal. 5: 19 – 21) of which Paul says, “I warn you, as I warned you before, that those who do such things will not inherit the kingdom of God.” Their consciences have been seared (1 Tim. 4: 2) and they are doing of what is described as “every man did what was right in his own eyes”.When people think they can sin with immunity, there will be agreement by the Holy Spirit that the legal charges have been laid before Jesus are right/legal, those people who did not listen to the Holy Spirit and accept the terms of the New Testament will be sentenced to the lake of fire (Rev. 21: 08). When the devil is called the accuser of the brethren, the Greek word means that the devil is our opponent (Greek: antidikos) who legally accuses those who have sinned (Rev. 12: 10). “ What I have described here is really the point of the Parable of the Unforgiving Servant (Matt. 18: 23 – 35). It is about a man (us) who owes his King (Jesus) 10,000 talents of Gold (his or our sin-debt) which at today’s gold price is over 32 Billion Dollars. He cannot repay the debt and begs for forgiveness and he is forgiven. He goes way and meets a man who owes him about $320.00 and when the man cannot repay the debt, he has the man arrested and thrown into prison. When the King (Jesus) hears about this, he calls the man back and says to him, “You wicked servant! I forgave you all that debt because you besought me; and should not you have had mercy on your fellow servant, as I had mercy on you?” He is turned over to the jailers (torturers) till he should pay all his debt. “So also my heavenly Father will do to every one of you, if you do not forgive your brother from your heart.” The point here is that a person who has received salvation and the Holy Spirit can have their sin debt reinstated and they can lose their salvation and end up in hell. This is the reality for anyone who can think that they can sin and not lose their salvation. “.
.
Now as the many hyper Charismatic movements merge into one, they bring their own counterfeit gospel, counterfeit spirit, and counterfeit “Jesus Christ,” who disguises himself as an angel of light, and is backed by false apostles, deceitful workers–men and women who appear as servants of righteousness (2 Corinthians chapter 11) In 2 Timothy 3:12-13, the Apostle Paul lovingly warned Timothy of what to expect from the world and wolves in sheep’s clothing:
.
It is true that it all it takes is for a person to go into these false hyper Charismatic movements Christian meetings and they too will get demon possessed. Also, true that some spirits will jump on the heads and they backs of people and these manifestations will taken on the signs of demon possession because they manipulate the person’s mind from the outside…. exactly like a mind control handler would operate.
.
However, if the possessed minister lays their hands on the person they will receive transference of spirits.1 Tim 5:22 22 Lay hands suddenly on no man neither be partaker of other men’s sins: keep thyself pure. KJV

.
But the other side of the coin is that the Traditional churches are ALSO not better than the bad Third Wave churches, hyper Charismatic movements
.

The Bible tells us about Jesus: MT 4:24 Then His fame went throughout all Syria; and they brought to Him all sick people who were afflicted with various diseases and torments, and those who were demon-possessed, epileptics, and paralytics; and He healed them.

.

ACTS 10:38 “how God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Spirit and with power, who went about doing good and healing all who were oppressed by the devil, for God was with Him.

.

Jesus Christ who is the same yesterday today and forever and is no respecter of person still can do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask pray or think.

.

God wants to make people whole in body soul and spirit and to bless them in every way with the blessings in Jesus Christ and not rather the curses of Deuteronomy 28. He wants their lives to be whole, complete. Everything to be whole, peaceful, healthy, safe, sound, tranquil, prosperous, perfect, full, restful, and in harmony. God’s word tells us:

LK 12:32 “Do not fear, little flock, for it is your Father’s good pleasure to give you the kingdom.

.

MT 7:7 “Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you. 7:8 “For everyone who asks receives, and he who seeks finds, and to him who knocks it will be opened. 7:9 “Or what man is there among you who, if his son asks for bread, will give him a stone? 7:10 “Or if he asks for a fish, will he give him a serpent? 7:11 “If you then, being evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father who is in heaven give good things to those who ask Him!

.

Jesus went about healing all who were oppressed by the devil brought to Him all sick people who were afflicted with various diseases and torments, and those who were demon-possessed, epileptics, and paralytics; and He healed them. And none of the so called mainstream, Evangelicals who are proclaiming the good news of the Gospel are now demonstrating why it’s good news!  They are not healing the sick, casting out devils or talking about the Anointing that was on Jesus can be on them to do greater works! Why? Because they are deceived that they are real Christians! The devil and his cohorts are alive and well do damage to even now most Christians even in the Traditional and Emergent Evangelical Churches.

.

For all Christians now still too  are two sides of the coin here. Persecution and sickness do come upon the righteous but Jesus Christ is still the Savior, healer and deliverer and He can and will turn things around for His trusting ones like He did many times for Apostle Paul.

.

Speaking of Paul I find it very strange that some Evangelicals state that Apostle Paul was sick when the Scriptures don’t tell us this or that a sick man could heal others but himself didn’t get healed?  This is a joke because the Scriptures tell us of what happened to Paul and what he did after which very few Christians today can do!

.

ACTS 28:1 Now when they had escaped, they then found out that the island was called Malta. 28:2 And the natives showed us unusual kindness; for they kindled a fire and made us all welcome, because of the rain that was falling and because of the cold. 28:3 But when Paul had gathered a bundle of sticks and laid them on the fire, a viper came out because of the heat, and fastened on his hand. 28:4 So when the natives saw the creature hanging from his hand, they said to one another, “No doubt this man is a murderer, whom, though he has escaped the sea, yet justice does not allow to live.” 28:5 But he shook off the creature into the fire and suffered no harm. 28:6 However, they were expecting that he would swell up or suddenly fall down dead. But after they had looked for a long time and saw no harm come to him, they changed their minds and said that he was a god. 28:7 In that region there was an estate of the leading citizen of the island, whose name was Publius, who received us and entertained us courteously for three days. 28:8 And it happened that the father of Publius lay sick of a fever and dysentery. Paul went in to him and prayed, and he laid his hands on him and healed him. 28:9 So when this was done, the rest of those on the island who had diseases also came and were healed. 28:10 They also honored us in many ways; and when we departed, they provided such things as were necessary.

.

Yes  when the rest of those on the island who had diseases also came they were also healed? Confirming what Paul had stated:

.

1 Corinthians 2:1 And I, brethren, when I came to you, did not come with excellence of speech or of wisdom declaring to you the testimony of God. 2:2 For I determined not to know anything among you except Jesus Christ and Him crucified. 2:3 I was with you in weakness, in fear, and in much trembling. 2:4 And my speech and my preaching were not with persuasive words of human wisdom, but in demonstration of the Spirit and of power, 2:5 that your faith should not be in the wisdom of men but in the power of God.

.

In those carnal, sensual, false Christians supposedly societies especially in the Third Wave we have so called healers who make a lot of noise when one person gets healed but they don’t talk about the rest who don’t get healed. And they blame the lack of healing on the sick and not on themselves or their anointing. But these healers are constantly demanding money for various reasons and never have enough unlike Apostle Paul

.

Now on a positive note Apostle Paul understood the great blessing that comes from praying for God’s people who have the spirit of wisdom and revelation of in the knowledge of God and to know and experience His mighty power which determines if we get miracles or not

.

Ephesians 1:15  Therefore I also, after I heard of your faith in the Lord Jesus and your love for all the saints, 1:16 do not cease to give thanks for you, making mention of you in my prayers:

.

1:17 that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give to you the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of Him,  18 the eyes of your understanding being enlightened; that you may know what is the hope of His calling, what are the riches of the glory of His inheritance in the saints, 19 and what is the exceeding greatness of His power toward us who believe, according to the working of His mighty power 20 which He worked in Christ when He raised Him from the dead and seated Him at His right hand in the heavenly places, :21 far above all principality and power and might and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this age but also in that which is to come. 1:22 And He put all things under His feet, and gave Him to be head over all things to the church, 23 which is His body, the fullness of Him who fills all in all.

.

Ephesians  3:14  For this reason I bow my knees to the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, 3:15 from whom the whole family in heaven and earth is named, 3:16 that He would grant you, according to the riches of His glory, to be strengthened with might through His Spirit in the inner man, 3:17 that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith; that you, being rooted and grounded in love, 3:18 may be able to comprehend with all the saints what is the width and length and depth and height- 3:19 to know the love of Christ which passes knowledge; that you may be filled with all the fullness of God. 3:20 Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us, 3:21 to Him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus to all generations, forever and ever. Amen.

THE TRUE ISRAEL OF GOD TODAY

One thing for sure I have observed that where there are sheep now there are also many wolves, for where there are real Christians there are also the the pretenders amongst them now, today as well. The pretender, imposter, wolf in sheep clothing do now show up for all kind of reasons even to seduce the sheep. They masquerade as know it all, relgious persons, helpers, pastors,, assistant pastors, elders, youth ministers, Bible college students now as well. All of the Self proclaimed prophets  who try to make prophecies contradictory to what Jesus now  had Proclaimed even about Israel are still false prophets.. Mark 11:12-14 and 20-22

.

One can not reject the fact that Israel was once God’s dearest nation among nations, according to the  stories of the old testament, in the Holy Bible. God’s love for the Israelites was so strong that he called his servant Moses to go to Egypt to liberate the Israelites from the hands of Pharoah. But what about this modern times? Christians today do not realize how much today’s physical Israel has strayed from even barely resembling any past remnant of God’s Chosen People of Israel..  Is Israel still God’s nation? The Jews refused Jesus and his message, calling him even a devil, because they want to cling to that pride as God’s chosen nation.The fact that God loves Israel, in religious aspects, is now a concept to the Israelites that they are superior to any nation on earth. But the almighty God, dislikes this concept of pride, since the same scriptures says “God created man in his own image” – thus all men are equal. To take away this pride and bring understanding among all men, God sent his only son Jesus Christ. So how can a Christian still believe that God has still claimed the Nation of Israel as His “chosen people”? It makes no Biblical sense.

.

One of the biggest opposition, opponents  still today to Christians, Christianity are the Jews, not just the Muslims, Buddhists,  They the Jews in Israel and elsewhere for the most part still tend to hate Jesus Christ and all Christians and they do continually still  promote their hatred towards Jesus Christ, and their false religion on TV, radio, News media too. Jews are continually even falsely trying to make Jews out of Christians by lying and say Christians have to support all that the Jews do, they have to support Israel getting back the holy Land, Christians need to know the Jews cultures, Christians have to keep the Jewish laws as well.. But these Jewish heresies is nothing new this opposition was evident in the early new testament church as well.  The sole basis of the Christian faith today, which is why it is also called the New Testament as well, is not at all the Old Testament Judaism but the New Testament Jesus. The true Christians since Jesus Christ next always left their old Jewish Synagogues all together… and all Christian Jews, Messianic Jews too need to do this today as well, also they are supposed to give up their Jewish roots, Jewish culture, Jewish religion when they accept Jesus Christ as their master, lord and savior .The only main portion of the Bible that you really need to read, to follow is the New Testament because we are no longer under Old Testament covenant, law – essentially the the New Testament replaces the basic requirements of the Law and the Prophets of the Old Testament.

MANY JEWISH PEOPLE FALSELY LIE AND MAKE THEIR BOAST THAT THEY ARE GOD’S CHOSEN PEOPLE.. THERE IS NO NEW TESTAMENT SUBSTANTIATION OF THIS RATHER AS THIS IS NO LONGER  TRUE. THE CHRISTIANS ARE   GOD’S CHOSEN PEOPLE WHO HAVE NOW ACQUIRED THE BLESSINGS PROMISED TO THE JEWS, ISRAEL  AS Galatians 3:29 tells us: “And if ye be Christ’s, then are ye Abraham’s seed, and heirs according to the promise.”

 (2 Cor 10:17 KJV)  But he that glorieth, let him glory in the Lord.

(2 Cor 10:18 KJV)  For not he that commendeth himself is approved, but whom the Lord commendeth.

(James 4:16 KJV)  But now ye rejoice in your boastings: all such rejoicing is evil.

(James 4:17 KJV)  Therefore to him that knoweth to do good, and doeth it not, to him it is sin.

(Psa 10:3 KJV)  For the wicked boasteth of his heart’s desire, and blesseth the covetous, whom the LORD abhorreth.

(Prov 25:14 KJV)  Whoso boasteth himself of a false gift is like clouds and wind without rain.

(James 3:5 KJV)  Even so the tongue is a little member, and boasteth great things. Behold, how great a matter a little fire kindleth!

Paul in Romans 9:27 referred to Isaiah when he wrote, “Though the number of the children of Israel be as the sand of the sea, [only] a remnant shall be saved.”

THE CHRISTIAN CHURCH IS SPIRITUAL ISRAEL WHICH HAS REPLACED LITERAL ISRAEL AS GOD’S CHOSEN PEOPLE Consider the teaching of the following Bible passages:

Galatians 3:9, 27-29: “For this reason, those who believe are blessed with Abraham who believed.” “As many of you as were baptized into Christ have clothed yourselves with Christ. There is no longer Jew or Greek, there is no longer slave or free, there is no longer male and female; for all of you are one in Christ Jesus. And if you belong to Christ, then you are Abraham’s offspring, heirs according to the promise.”

Those who have Abraham’s faith receive the blessings promised to him. Jews and non-Jews who have received Christ as Savior and Lord are counted as “Abraham’s offspring, heirs according to the promise.”

Romans 9:6-8, 23-26: “It is not as though the word of God had failed. For not all Israelites truly belong to Israel, and not all of Abraham’s children are his true descendants: but ‘It is through Isaac that descendants shall be named for you.’ This means that it is not the children of the flesh who are the children of God, but the children of the promise are counted as descendants.” “And what if he [God] has done so in order to make known the riches of his glory for the objects of mercy, which he has prepared beforehand for glory — including us whom he has called, not from the Jews only but also from the Gentiles? As indeed he says in Hosea, ‘Those who were not my people I will call “my people,” and her who was not beloved I will call “beloved,”‘ ‘And in the very place where it was said to them “You are not my people,” there they shall be called children of the living God.'”

The birth of Isaac was a miracle of God. This represented the fact that salvation is by faith, not by human effort. The true Israel of God are those who have faith in Christ, not those who are the natural children of Abraham. God has called all believers; “not from the Jews only but also from the Gentiles” (Rom. 9:24). Now Hosea 2:23 is fulfilled; Christian believers of all nations have now replaced literal Israel as God’s chosen people.

Romans 2:27-29: “Then those who are physically uncircumcised but keep the law will condemn you that have the written code and circumcision but break the law. For a person is not a Jew who is one outwardly, nor is true circumcision something external and physical. Rather, a person is a Jew who is one inwardly, and real circumcision is a matter of the heart — it is spiritual and not literal. Such a person receives praise not from others but from God.”

The “physically uncircumcised” are the Gentiles. If they obey God’s law by faith in Christ, having His Spirit living in their hearts, they are counted as Jews and numbered among God’s faithful ones. Only Jews who have the same spiritual experience are acceptable to God.

1 Corinthians 1:23, 24: “But we proclaim Christ crucified, a stumbling block to Jews and foolishness to Gentiles, but to those who are the called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ the power of God and the wisdom of God.”

The message of “Christ crucified” is power and wisdom to both Jews and non-Jews who believe. The method of salvation is identical for both classes.

1 Peter 2:9, 10: “But you are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, God’s own people, in order that you may proclaim the mighty acts of him who called you out of darkness into his marvelous light. Once you were not a people, but now you are God’s people; once you had not received mercy, but now you have received mercy.”

Peter was writing to faithful Christian believers in Gentile countries (1 Peter 1:1, 2). Christian believers of all nationalities are now God’s chosen people, even though formerly this was not the case. Peter could not have been more specific in his terminology: “But you are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, God’s own people.”

Acts 10:34, 35: “Then Peter began to speak to them: ‘I truly understand that God shows no partiality, but in every nation anyone who fears him and does what is right is acceptable to him.'”

The New Testament is thoroughly clear that the Christian Church, comprising all genuine believers in Jesus Christ, has replaced Israel as the chosen nation. Spiritual “Jews” are believers in Christ irrespective of their national heritage.

God’s promise to Abraham, “in you all the families of the earth shall be blessed” (Gen. 12:3), has been remarkably fulfilled. Paul underlines the point. “And the scripture, foreseeing that God would justify the Gentiles by faith, declared the gospel beforehand to Abraham saying, ‘All the Gentiles shall be blessed in you.’ For this reason, those who believe are blessed with Abraham who believed” (Gal. 3:8, 9).

Jesus was a Jew. “Salvation is from the Jews” (John 4:22). Jesus’ apostles who made enormous sacrifices to bring the Christian Gospel to the world were Jews. Paul, the great apostle to the Gentiles, was a Jew. Gentile Christians are deeply indebted to Jews for their cooperation with Jesus in launching and fostering the Christian Church and in disseminating the Judaeo-Christian tradition.

“Now using Romans, chapter 11.  in an  attempt to make the chapter falsely  teach that the nation Israel is still God’s chosen nation is quite futile. Note the following major points:

1. Some faithful Jews who believe in Christ are counted among the elect of God; the rest of the nation are blind (verses 5-8).

2. All but the believing remnant have been cast away (verse 15).

3. The majority of unbelieving Jews are likened to branches that have been broken off from a parent olive tree (verses 17-20; compare John 15:5). The parent stock is Christ.

4. The only way rejected Jews can be acceptable to God again is by believing in Christ (verse 23).

5. Believing Jews are grafted back into the parent stock again in the same way as believing Gentiles (verse 24).

6. “All Israel” that will be saved (verse 26) is not a reference to the literal nation Israel. Not even dispensationalists believe that the entire nation Israel will be saved. In the context of Romans 11, “all Israel” refers to those Jews who are elect “if they do not persist in unbelief” (verse 23) and those Gentiles who, because of belief in Christ, have been grafted into the parent olive tree. “The full number of the Gentiles” (verse 25) refers to the total number of Gentiles who will become believers in Christ before the end of time. These Gentiles plus the Christian Jews comprise “all Israel,” in the New Testament sense of spiritual Israel which has inhertied the promises to Abraham.”

PROVE ME WRONG~

It is a lie from Satan that Jews are still God’s chosen people and many pastors embrace and teach Satan’s lie that Christians should support the State of Israel (Zionism). Also, another lie from Satan is the teaching that God blesses those who bless Israel and He curses those who curse them. (That has not been true for more than 1900 years.)

Jews claim to be God’s chosen people, but they were His chosen people. Only the elect of the Jews (which is an extremely small minority) will be saved.

Jesus Christ, who is God incarnate, pronounced judgment on the Jews for rejecting Him:

The Jews generally rejected Jesus, the true Messiah, therefore Jesus cursed the fig tree, which represents Israel, saying, “May you never bear fruit again!” (Mat. 21:18).

When the Jewish chief priests and elders questioned Jesus’ authority He said to them, “I tell you that the kingdom of God will be taken away from you and given to a people [Gentiles] who will produce its fruit” (Mat. 21:43).

When Jesus told a parable to the Jewish chief priests, scribes, and elders (Lk. 20:19), they knew He was talking about them when He said that the vine-growers, to whom the owner had sent his son, killed his son. Then in the parable Jesus asked what will the owner of the vineyard do to those who killed his son, to which He said, “He will come and destroy these vine-growers [Jews] and will give the vineyard to others [Gentiles].”

After hearing this and knowing that Jesus was talking about them, those Jews “tried to lay hands on Him that very hour…and they watched Him, and sent spies who pretended to be righteous, in order that they might catch Him in some statement, so as to deliver Him up to the rule and the authority of the governor” (Lk. 20:9-20).

A loving, longsuffering and merciful God sent Jesus to “His own [the Jews], and His own received Him not” (John 1:11). The reason that the Jewish prophet John (the Baptizer) came baptizing with water was to reveal Jesus to Israel (John 1:31). And Jesus said that He was sent only to the lost sheep of Israel (Mat. 15:24).

Near the end of Jesus’ earthly ministry Jesus said, ‘O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, you who kill the prophets and stone those sent to you, how often I have longed to gather your children together, as a hen gathers her chicks under her wings, but you were not willing. Look, your house is left to you desolate. (Mat. 23:37-38).

Paul quoted Isaiah in his epistle to the Christians in Rome, “Concerning Israel he [Isaiah] says, ‘All day long I [God] have held out My hands to a disobedient and obstinate people [the Jews]‘” (Rom. 10:21).

After the apostle Paul had preached the Gospel to Jews in cities throughout Asia and was, for the most part, rejected by them, he turned to the Gentiles and ministered to them.

Near the end of Paul’s ministry, when he was in Rome under house arrest, he spoke to a large gathering of Jews. Paul explained and declared to them the kingdom of God and tried to convince them about Jesus from the Law of Moses and from the Prophets.

The great apostle concluded his sermon by saying, “The Holy Spirit spoke the truth to your [Jewish] forefathers when He said through Isaiah the prophet: ‘Go to this people and say, ‘You will be ever hearing but never understanding; you will be ever seeing but never perceiving. For this people’s heart has become calloused; they hardly hear with their ears, and they have closed their eyes. Otherwise they might see with their eyes, hear with their ears, understand with their hearts and turn and I would heal [save] them.’ Therefore I want you to know that God’s salvation has been sent to the Gentiles, and they will listen” (Acts 28:17-28).

When the Jews cried out over and over to crucify Jesus, and Pilate wanted to release Him, all the Jews said, “Let His blood be on us and on our children!” (Mat. 27:25).

Jesus prophesied God’s destruction of Jerusalem that would take place in 70 A.D. at the hands of the Roman general Titus (Mat. 24:1-2; Lk. 19:41-44). According to Josephus, the first-century Jewish historian, more than 1,000,000 Jews died when Jerusalem was laid siege to and destroyed as Jesus had prophesied 40 years earlier.

The idea that the literal nation Israel will be completely restored at the end of history, that during the millennium the Old Testament promises to Israel will be literally fulfilled is an unbiblical teaching. Because the Jews rejected Christ, they lost their chosen nation status, lost the promise that the land of Palestine would be theirs forever, and forfeited their privilege of being the teachers of the Gospel to an unbelieving world. Our Lord bestowed upon His Church in all the world these covenant promises. The land will, indeed, belong to His people, but it will not be limited to Palestine. It will be first the heavenly Canaan during the millennium, followed by the earth made new at the end of the 1,000 years. Jesus said, “Blessed are the meek: for they shall inherit the earth” (Matt. 5:5).

Whatever your national or racial heritage, salvation is for you, if you have accepted Christ as your Savior and Lord. You can trust Him to fulfill for you individually the eternal promises for true believers.
