Splits and Divisions

If you are born again, you are family. I feel strongly about some side issues but you are free to disagree. If you got sprinkled and I got dunked… who cares. If I believe in tongues and you don’t, so what?

To fellowship with Saints above, Oh, that will be Glory!

To fellowship with Saints below, Well, that’s another story…

The truth is, the Bible is pretty much self-explanatory. If you are saved and the Holy Spirit lives in you, the basic truths are hard to miss. Much confusion comes about when men do not want to believe the Bible and come up with complicated theological systems that attempt to explain away the obvious message and negate its requirements.

Most church splits occur, not over major, central Christian Doctrine but over the peripherals. If you erase the churches and denominations that have been lead into heresy by evil men, those that are left, agree on the basics…

Denominations do not split over questions like:

  • “Is Jesus the Christ?”
  • “Are men in need of a Savior?”

They split over questions like:

  • “Is Baptism by sprinkling valid?”,
  • “Are Tongues and prophecy for today?”

More often, splits occur over important questions like:

  • “Should we install blue carpet or green?”
  • “Should the Board members pay for their own coffee at Board Meetings?”

In any group, charismatic, unsaved leaders will arise and attempt to lead the church into heresy. If they lose, they leave with a percentage of the congregation and start their own cult. If they win, God fearing members must leave and continue the true Church in other places. The Devil is real and these things happen.

It is, however, much more common for churches to split over issues that have little or nothing to do with the Gospel. These issues are what we call “Denominational Distinctives”. Growing up Baptist, we were known by what we did not do. If you told your friend that you were not allowed to go to the school dance or the Saturday Matinee at the theater, they would often come back, “Oh, you must be a Baptist!” There was a short list of things that Baptists believed that gave the Preacher bragging rights and allowed him to frighten you out of visiting the Presbyterian Church with your friend from school. (The Presbyterians have two pulpits… one on each side and none in the Middle. Baptists heard from God that one pulpit, in the middle was much more Christian!)

If you believe the basic Christian Gospel, have repented of your sin, asked Jesus to save you… If you are born again, you are family. I feel strongly about some side issues but you are free to disagree. If you got sprinkled and I got dunked… who cares. If I believe in tongues and you don’t, so what? If you like blue carpet and I like green, we will pray on green carpet one week and on blue the next… It is your house. If you give me coffee when we meet at your house and I ask you to bring your own, can’t we still be brothers?

I argue strongly for what I believe on this blog. If you disagree, I will push you to define your reasons. Your answers will push me to refine my own. That is good stuff. We do not always have to agree on everything. If you believe that you should support a political candidate and that voting matters… we disagree. You are still family. Jesus loves you and so do I. That doesn’t mean I am not going to argue you into the ground.

DON’T CENSOR WHAT SCARES YOU!

Pastors, God fearing, Jesus loving, Men of God are frightened to death to approach the subject of the end times. “What if I get it wrong? How would I ever explain it to my congregation?” I have heard that question paraphrased in a hundred different ways.

“Don’t censor what scares you” Alana Newhouse, Chief Editor, Tablet Magazine.

When I saw that headline, something in my head screamed, “Wow! I have to write on that thought!” I gained some insight into the Passover Seder and Jewish thought from the article. You really should follow the link and read it, if you haven’t. I however, am not going there… I am a gentile Christian… I am going to take free rein with the title and depart from there.

Pastors, God fearing, Jesus loving, Men of God are frightened to death to approach the subject of the end times. “What if I get it wrong? How would I ever explain it to my congregation?” I have heard that question paraphrased in a hundred different ways.

“What if I get it wrong? How would I ever explain it to my congregation?”

Jesus repeatedly commanded us to “Watch!”.

Jesus told us what to watch for…

Scripture goes into great detail, giving us long lists of things to watch for…

Paul tells us, “But you, brothers, are not in the dark, for this day to overtake you like a thief.” (1 Thessalonians 5:4)

The problem is, most Christians are in the dark… not because they are in sin but because their Pastors and Teachers are censoring the Word of God, refusing to preach that which frightens them.

Why are they frightened?

  • Eighty-Eight Reasons in Eighty-Eight, Edgar C. Whisenant
  • Y2K
  • The World did not end in 2012
  • Etc.

So many Pastors lost face when they went overboard on these issues. Now, Satan has used those things to frighten them into silence.

I might point out that it is quite possible to preach the Word concerning the end times, enumerate the signs and compare them with current events, preach fact as fact and conjecture as conjecture, and never go off the deep end with dates or dire predictions tied to a particular season.

I might point out that:

  • Whisenent was a good Engineer and a bad Theologian… setting dates is a bad idea.
  • Y2K was a very real problem, solved beforehand. If no one had sounded the alarm, it could have been a real disaster.
  • Times did change in 2012. The Maya and the Aztec predicted major change and the end of the age in 2012 but never predicted the end of the World.
  • Other people’s mistakes can serve as a warning against specific actions without causing us to disobey the command of Jesus.

You do not have to remain in the dark. You do not have to disobey the command of your Lord to “watch”. You can shed light on the subject in a manner that takes your congregation out of darkness and into the light. I have it on the authority of the word of God that that day does not have to take you or your congregation by surprise…

Do not censor the parts of the Word of God that frighten you. You owe it to God, yourself and your congregation to study until the light comes on in your life and share the Word until the light comes on in the lives of your members… Do not be taken by surprise by what is happening and what is about to happen. Do not allow your flock to wander about in the dark, blind to what God has said about the times in which we live.

Take the advice of the Editor of a Jewish Magazine and stop censoring the things that frighten you…

Nationalism in an Ungodly Nation

“Trump has helped to unleash the mightiest force of the 21st century: nationalism.”

Pat Buchanan writes, “(T)his city of self-delusion should realize there is no going back for America. For, whatever his stumbles of the last two weeks, Trump has helped to unleash the mightiest force of the 21st century: nationalism.”

NATIONALISM

Wasn’t that the force behind the National Socialist Party?

NAZI?

If the United States was a moral and godly entity and it was a Christian man calling a Christian People to support a Christian Nation, perhaps NATIONALISM would not make me so nervous…

History has taught me a thing or two. This is among them:

An ungodly man, an egomaniac, whipping up a spirit of nationalism in the ungodly population of an ungodly nation is a dangerous thing.

Just saying…

THE HALF GOSPEL HERESY

Every word of every sermon is true but by selecting the passages never to read and the subjects never to preach, these Heretics damn well meaning church members… good people, to a Devil’s Hell.

THE DAMNABLE PRACTICE OF SELECTIVE PREACHING

The Half Gospel Heresy is well hidden and difficult to detect. The problem lies in the fact that no heresy is ever directly stated; everything the Half Gospel Preacher says from the pulpit is Gospel Truth and nothing preached would ever fail the test of Scriptural analysis. The finest theologian would be hard pressed to detect heresy though he were to dissect the sermon line by line. The insidiousness of this heresy lies in what is never preached, that which is never spoken.

These men preach Jesus as Savior but never as Lord, Heaven without Hell, Salvation without repentance, blessing without suffering and Gifts of the Spirit without Fruit of the Spirit. They revel in stories of Peter and James being freed from prison but they will never mention Stephen being stoned, James losing his head or Peter being crucified upside down. Altar calls are for blessing and healing but never for repentance or salvation. Congregants are encouraged to worship but not to be holy, speak in tongues but not to be saved, get close to God but not to renounce sin, be free from worry but not free from sin. When these Heretics talk about the woman caught in adultery, they always speak of forgiveness but never read the part that says “Go and sin no more.” They speak of how the saints overcame by the Blood of the Lamb and the word of their testimony but never read the third verse in the trilogy… the one that says “they loved not their lives unto death.”

Theirs is an all inclusive Gospel; bring in everybody, accept everybody, encourage everybody to sing and praise and worship. At the same time, it is a non confrontational Gospel… sinners are never confronted with their sin and never come under conviction. They are encouraged to accept Jesus but never asked to repent or walk away from or reject their sin. It is a Gospel that lets you feel good in your sin. It is a church where you can bring your live-in girlfriend or your same sex lover and worship God with no fear of judgment or conviction of sin. This Half-Gospel heresy lets you go to church and worship every Sunday for decades and go to Hell when you die.

Every word of every sermon is true but by selecting the passages never to read and the subjects never to preach, these Heretics damn well meaning church members… good people, to a Devil’s Hell. When is the last time your Pastor’s sermon brought conviction to your soul and drove you to the altar to repent? That may be the most important question you face today; the wrong answer should have you asking God to lead you to a Whole-Gospel Church.

OF FIRE AND BLOOD

I could not help but remember Obama speaking from the altar at the Brandenburg Gate in Berlin and how he had the Altar of Pergamum reconstructed in Denver. I remembered how he spoke to the world, standing on Satan’s Seat…

Leonard Ravenhill said that a Prophet must spend twenty years in the wilderness in preparation for a ministry that will last no more than six months. Jesus said that John the Baptist was the greatest of the Prophets. John’s ministry lasted six months and they took off his head.

Oh, the sheer weight of the lies I have believed. I asked God to reveal his Truth. Blindly, I promised him that I would share it without regard to consequence. Had I only known… perhaps I would have never made such a rash vow.

Today, I heard Rabbi Cahn speak of the Abomination of the Desolation, both past and future. He spoke of the Altar of Pergamum; of how it was moved and erected in Berlin the very year Hitler was born. He spoke of how Albert Speer designed a copy of that altar; how it was built in Nuremberg and how Hitler made his greatest speeches from the Seat of Satan.

As I listened, I could not help but remember Obama speaking from the altar at the Brandenburg Gate in Berlin and how he had the Altar of Pergamum reconstructed in Denver. I remembered how he spoke to the world, standing on Satan’s Seat. I remembered the fires that burned the Jews of Germany in a twisted Holocaust; a burnt offering to Lucifer. I could not help but think of the Holocaust coming to America. I remembered the firestorm that destroyed Berlin and Nuremberg. I thought of Washington, New York and Denver. I remembered how Hitler commanded that his body be burned and I thought of Obama… for a moment, that gave me hope.

I also listened to Rob Skiba speak of the resurrection of Nimrod as the Antichrist. I came to that conclusion long ago but hearing him say it put a fire in my soul. This is he who was and is not and is to come. He is the last one to rule a unified world and he will be the one to rule a unified world again. Few of you can imagine just how soon this is to happen. The altar of Baal goes up in New York this month… a gross reminder of the blood of seventy million American babies poured out to Baal since 1972.

And they still sing, “God Bless America”!

The KJV Bible translated Yahweh “LORD” 5,000 times and other versions have followed their lead. There are two words for Lord in Hebrew, Adoni and Baal. They told us the United States was the Lord’s work. We assumed they meant Yahweh. That assumption was our mistake, they spoke of Lord Baal.

That which was hidden is brought to the light. When you see the Altar of Baal stand in New York, let your mind see it drenched in the hundreds of thousands of gallons of blood, flowing from the mutilated bodies of some seventy million babies; their bodies torn to shreds… Look at that Altar; see the blood that brought it to our shores. That Altar will stand as a monument to shredded babies and their blood.

NIMROD WILL RISE

Jeremiah 51

44 I will punish Bel in Babylon.
I will make him vomit what he swallowed.
The nations will no longer stream to him;
even Babylon’s wall will fall.

45 Come out from among her, My people!
Save your lives, each of you,
from the Lord’s burning anger.
46 May you not become cowardly and fearful
when the report is proclaimed in the land,
for the report will come one year,
and then another the next year.
There will be violence in the land
with ruler against ruler.
47 Therefore, look, the days are coming
when I will punish Babylon’s carved images.
Her entire land will suffer shame,
and all her slain will lie fallen within her.
48 Heaven and earth and everything in them
will shout for joy over Babylon
because the destroyers from the north
will come against her.
This is the Lord’s declaration.

TO LIE IN THE NAME OF GOD

“These prophets are prophesying a lie in My name. I did not send them, nor did I command them or speak to them. They are prophesying to you a false vision, worthless divination, the deceit of their own minds.”

“These prophets are prophesying a lie in My name. I did not send them, nor did I command them or speak to them. They are prophesying to you a false vision, worthless divination, the deceit of their own minds.”
Jeremiah 14 (HCSB)
11 Then the Lord said to me, “Do not pray for the well-being of these people. 12 If they fast, I will not hear their cry of despair. If they offer burnt offering and grain offering, I will not accept them. Rather, I will finish them off by sword, famine, and plague.”
13 And I replied, “Oh no, Lord God! The prophets are telling them, ‘You won’t see sword or suffer famine. I will certainly give you true peace in this place.’”
 
14 But the Lord said to me, “These prophets are prophesying a lie in My name. I did not send them, nor did I command them or speak to them. They are prophesying to you a false vision, worthless divination, the deceit of their own minds.
 
15 “Therefore, this is what the Lord says concerning the prophets who prophesy in My name, though I did not send them, and who say, ‘There will never be sword or famine in this land.’ By sword and famine these prophets will meet their end. 16 The people they are prophesying to will be thrown into the streets of Jerusalem because of the famine and the sword. There will be no one to bury them—they, their wives, their sons, and their daughters. I will pour out their own evil on them.”

PLEASE FORWARD TO STUPID AND EVIL PREACHERS EVERYWHERE…

THERE IS A RELIGION

“There is a religious institution whose members are the most devout and serious of any faith on earth. Those who are a part of this institution unquestionably believe in a god that directs their activities and they look to this deity with the ultimate hope of gaining his favor. They, unlike many of the people ascribed to the popular religions of today, have no doubt…

The photograph was taken at a dinner party, thrown by the Rothschilds, in 1972.

One of the most powerful quotes I have ever read comes from “THE LABYRINTH” by Mark Flynn:

“There is a religious institution whose members are the most devout and serious of any faith on earth. Those who are a part of this institution unquestionably believe in a god that directs their activities and they look to this deity with the ultimate hope of gaining his favor. They, unlike many of the people ascribed to the popular religions of today, have no doubt that their god lives and interacts with them. They see the favor their god bestows upon them. The riches and power gained through their piety actively demonstrates the reality of their god’s existence. The precepts of their secretive religion are contra to that of the Judeo-Christian religion that values above all, love for their fellow man. They consider the people outside of their group inferior creatures, unworthy of their god, but necessary for manipulation towards the completion of their final objective. Through devotion, submission to the will of their god, and dedication to his secretive plan, they believe that they will achieve immortality and live in a coming golden age where their god will appear on earth and rule them in a new paradise of his design.”

The “Gospel” of the Illuminati is the ancient GNOSTIC Mysticism. The real Gospel is Good News… the Gnostic story, not so much… this is from a Gnostic site.

“Adam and Eve

“Just as Adam and Eve are regarded as central characters in the Christian creation myth, they are equally as important in that of the Gnostics. As mentioned in previous articles, the creation of the world according to Gnostic tradition is an account of the world created not by the True God, but by a false god. As Adam and Eve were created and placed in the Garden of Eden in Genesis, the same has been done in Gnostic scripture.

“However, the demiurge is responsible for the placement of Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden. The demiurge has created the fleshly bodies to entrap the spirits of Adam and Eve. Adam is placed under a spell of ignorance and put to sleep by the false god. Eve is placed next to him, and she commands Adam to awaken. When Adam sees Eve, he believes that she is his creator.

“The demiurge wanted to keep Adam and Eve ignorant; forever worshiping him. The Gnostics believe that the demiurge was posing as the false god, thus keeping Adam and Eve under his spell of ignorance. As long as Adam and Eve believed that he was the only god, they would worship him forever.

“The serpent is regarded as an evil figure in traditional Christian stories, but to the Gnostics, the serpent is the hero! The Gnostic text teaches that as the demiurge tells Adam and Eve that they may help themselves to anything the Garden, they are to stay away from the Tree of Knowledge. As Adam and Eve listen to the serpent, their eyes are opened, and the spell of ignorance is broken forever. Because they chose to listen to the serpent, Adam and Eve no longer worship the demiurge, but recognize that there is the True God, and he was not the creator of the evil, imperfect, material world.

“Adam and Eve gave birth to two children, Seth and Norea. The descendants of Seth regard themselves as Sethians, those that have been blessed with the gnosis.”

(www.gnostic-jesus.com/gnostic-jesus/Overview/adam-and-eve.html)

Eve, according to the satanic version, became a completely new creature after she ate the fruit of the Tree of the Knowledge of good and evil. Because she recreated herself by an act of her own will, she is seen as virgin born. All of the ancient goddesses and the Catholic, Mary the Mother of God, are virgin born. They represent the self-created Eve. There is always a serpent god who represents Lucifer, unfairly judged and punished… once beautiful, now damaged goods. There is always a bull or a cow god who represents Jehovah. The serpent god, in every ancient pagan religion, kills the bull or the cow. Adam is strangely missing except as represented in the common man. The unholy trinity is a self-created goddess, a serpent god and a bull… all of mythology, renaming the characters a thousand times, revolves around these three.

The symbolism is everywhere. Take a bullfight in Spain or Mexico. The brightly clothed Matador (killer) represents Lucifer. The bull represents the much larger, bully God who tried to keep Adam and Eve as ignorant slaves and unfairly judged Lucifer. The much smaller, Lucifer is much smarter and through superior knowledge kills the bull. The snake always wins in the end.

All of the ancient, pagan religions and the Gnostic or secret knowledge of the secret societies… including Freemasonry hold that Apollo / Nimrod is going to return and rule the earth in a New World Order. Scripture supports that idea and the idea that the Nephilim return. Something supernatural is about to happen. This is the religion of the Illuminati.

Did you know that this is the Gnostic, secret knowledge of the Master Mason? This is the belief system that led Joseph Smith to found the Mormon Church and this is the religious system behind Jehovah’s Witnesses. This is the foundation behind the Satanist churches and most major cults. This is the base doctrine of the Church of Rome and the founding belief behind Islam. This is the central foundation of all the ancient pagan religions. This teaching drove the first organized religion in Sumer, it is the foundation of Egyptian, Greek and Roman religious cults.

Masons below the thirtieth degree do not know this. Only the leadership in the Mormon Church is aware… the College of Cardinals and the Pope are certainly aware but your average priest hasn’t got a clue. Those in the Watchtower group in New York are fully aware but your average Jehovah’s Witnesses has no idea. This is a religion of the elite. This is knowledge reserved for the few… the select.  All of these groups are preparing the common man for the coming of a glorious New World Order led by a supernatural, messianic figure.

The Roman Catholic Church is preparing to greet an “Alien Messiah” who will lead the whole world to accept a single religion. Jehovah’s Witnesses are looking for the Messiah to return and lead them into a new Garden of Eden… a paradise on Earth. Mormons believe that the best of them will become gods like Jehovah and, like Adam and Eve, be sent off to populate and rule their own planet but according to their “White Horse Prophecy”, at a time when the US Constitution is in deep trouble, a Mormon will come to the rescue and lead the whole world back to paradise. Much has been said and written about Mitt Romney and his friend’s sincere belief that he is that man.

Something supernatural is about to happen. The world will be lead into the greatest period of chaos and death in history. At the bottom… the very worst, a hero will ride in to save the day. That hero may be a man or he may be a demonic “Alien”. But a messiah is coming and the whole world is waiting with baited breath. The deception is going to be complete. Carnal Christians are going to jump on board with great enthusiasm. The only exception will be the Elect of God and we will quickly become the world’s most hated minority.
