The Only Bible we Recommend Is The King James / A.V. Bible.
the reason, shocking but enlightening truth: The
Bible Is Used To Deceive
And I will set my face against you, and ye shall be slain before your enemies:
they that hate you shall reign over you; and ye shall flee when none pursueth you.
Ezekiel 20:26 ……
that I might make them desolate, to the end that they might know that I am the LORD.
A Message From Peter James
Living in the midst of deceit.
Jeremiah 15:19 Therefore thus saith the LORD, If thou return,
then will I bring thee again, and thou shalt stand before me:
and if thou take forth the precious from the vile, thou shalt be as my mouth:
let them return unto thee; but return not thou unto them.
Jeremiah 9:6 Your habitation is in the midst of deceit;
through deceit they refuse to know me, says the LORD.
"IN THE AGE OF UNIVERSAL DECEIT,
TELLING THE TRUTH IS A REVOLUTIONARY ACT"
John 8:32 And ye shall know the truth,
and the truth shall make you free.
This is the ninth Commandment.
You shall not bear false witness against your neighbour.
The purpose of this document is to show clearly that we are told
that we live in houses of deceit and in the midst of deceit.
This means that we have to be very careful in evaluating what
we hear, and what we read so that we are not ensnared in the
present worldwide system of Satanic lies.
Where are we now?
The short answer is that we live completely surrounded by liars
Where should we be?
We should be found in Christ.
It is only in Him that we will find Truth
Today Lying is Normal.
If you have the opportunity to look at many different Web sites
on the Internet which cover the items that are generally not
mentioned in the controlled media, you will see that there is one topic
which dominates everything else.
It is the matter of lying.
Lying and the results of lying are adversely affecting the lives
of almost all the people on planet earth in a devastating manner.
Now we can see clearly how we are utterly enmeshed
in a total system of lies and deceit.
Some of the most highly paid people in the world are actors.
They pretend to be someone else.
In a half an hour program some can earn hundreds of thousands of dollars.
After you spend most hours pretending to be someone else,
soon you will find your mind is messed up and you no longer know who you are.
We are influenced by these things although of course we all claim
that we are not. Yet, sometimes you will hear people reacting and commenting,
even using the very same words that these fictitious characters use.
Advertisers do not spend billions of pounds/dollars because advertising is pointless.
Even worse we learn to live the lies that these so called 'Stars'
promote in the various programs.
Sadly, much of the News media is also entertainment and
they do not cut straight to the truth, if they bother to mention the truth in the first place.
Most professions lie.
Recently we had a court case where the judge ruled
in favour of a News Media organisation who contested a case where
an employee refused to tell lies on the news as part of her job.
The judge said that it was right for her to lie.
She lost the case.
We expect Lawyers, Politicians, Estate Agents and other professionals to lie, and they excel at it.
Now Investment and Pension companies,
auditors, and accounting firms are being added to the long list of liars.
Today in elections most people simply do not bother to vote.
They have heard it all before.
They are told one thing and then the politicians proceed to do the opposite.
Not that voting matters.
There are articles covered in Points to Ponder which show
that the computerised counting is rigged and cannot be audited.
Those who cast the votes decide nothing.
Those who count the votes
We use electronic counting systems to hoodwink the public,
who easily falls for such scams.
One set of recent election results was given out before the election.
What an error to make.
The figures had to be manipulated a bit but none the less
the final result was very near the pre-election forecast figures.
Sometimes exit opinion polls say one thing the actual results
can be the opposite of the exit polls.
Worldwide, countless millions simply stay away from the polling booths.
Many trust the various news media whether it is T.V. or newspapers.
They think that if it is on T.V. or in print it must be true.
They fail to understand that the whole world is deceived.
It has been established in the media that in the present Iraq crisis,
that the Americans lie, the British lie, the Iraqi's lie and the weapon
inspector has we are told 'with held information'.
The lies are endless.
God will reveal worldwide deception.
Revelation 12:9 And the great dragon was cast out,
that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan,
which deceives the whole world:
he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.
The error of this gross deception is now being exposed in almost every area of life.
Christ said that everything done in secret will be revealed.
Matthew 10:26 Fear them not therefore: for there is nothing covered,
that shall not be revealed; and hid, that shall not be known.
All the power seekers of the New World Order and
the One World Religion and all the leaders of companies
that defraud and even destroy others by lies, be warned that there will come
a day when everything will be revealed and further more
you will be called to account for your words and deeds
and judged righteously accordingly to your words and deeds.
To those people who wonder who was responsible for
the twin towers and all the related terror attacks.
Do not worry about it at all.
There will come a time when every single thing will be revealed.
It might be a lot sooner than you imagine.
For those involved in the now you see it now you don’t
which is found in one large organisation after another,
a day of reckoning is coming. The lies and defrauding by
governments and businesses that destroyed the pensions and
savings of millions will all come out into the open.
You will have to give an account of ALL your lies, deceit, and your deeds.
You will be righteously judged by Christ and you will pay the price
unless you repent. The ultimate punishment is the Lake of fire.
Read this and carefully masticate it thoroughly.
Learn it by heart, keep it before your eyes at all times.
Revelation 21: 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 burns with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.
There is nothing complex here to understand.
It is quite straightforward language.
What an awesome God we have.
Absolutely nothing is too hard for him.
If He says thus and such will happen, that is it, pure and simple, it will happen.
The Eternal says that His Word cannot return without accomplishing its purpose.
Isaiah 55:11 So will my word be which goes out of my mouth:
but it will not come back to me with nothing done, it will give effect to my purpose,
and do that for which I have sent it.
When Daniel was facing a life and death situation where he needed not only to tell the king
a dream which the king had forgotten, but he also had to explain the dream.
He acknowledged that God could make known and explain even things which the person had forgotten.
Daniel 2:20 Daniel answered and said, Blessed be the name
of God for ever and ever: for wisdom and might are his:
Daniel 2:21 And he changes the times and the seasons:
he removes kings, and sets up kings: he gives wisdom unto the wise,
and knowledge to them that know understanding:
Daniel 2:22 He reveals the deep and secret things:
he knows what is in the darkness, and the light dwells with him.
Daniel 2:28 But there is a God in heaven that reveals secrets, and makes known
to the king Nebuchadnezzar what shall be in the latter days. Your dream,
and the visions of your head upon your bed, are these;
Satan the originator of lies and murder.
We have been seduced by Satan, who was a liar from the beginning,
and since we have been listening to him, we have become his children, his little lying serpents.
He was a little serpent in the Garden of Eden by the time
of Revelation, he had matured to being a full blown dragon.
John 8:44 Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do.
He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him.
When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.
We can say that those of you reading this, speak the English language.
Satan speaks lies, that is his language.
At first glance it might appear that Satan is the originator of two
things. One of them is not so bad, lies and much worse is murder.
The reality is that lies kill just as certainly as murder.
They are tightly interlocked.
The Main Consequence of a lie is death.
The entire creation is under the direct penalty of death.
Because of a lie.
Christ had to die because of a lie.
If mother Eve had not believed Satan's lie there would
not have been the need for the entire bible.
We would have moved from Genesis chapter 2 straight to the last two chapters of the last book
in the bible, the book of Revelation. Even to the two last chapters of this book.
But today we have the diametric opposite of an idyllic world.
Romans 8:22 For we are conscious that all living things are
weeping and sorrowing in pain together till now.
The result of Adam and Eve believing the lie means that they thought that they knew better than God,
and they therefore chose the way of independence from God rather than dependence on Him.
Today, we as their children do the very same thing.
Living the lie.
The lies which engulf us are utterly diabolical.
There is a pop song that is at the top of the charts.
It is called ‘Living the lie’.
In it the singer supposedly encourages us to stop living the lie.
Sadly this is preceded by the most blasphemous lie possible.
He says that we have no saviour.
This is an excellent example of our devious devil, who always mixes truth with lies.
Truth : We should stop living the lie.
Lie : We have no saviour.
In other words God is dead, there is no such person as Christ.
Christ did not come and die so that we can be saved,
therefore we can only conclude that we are doomed.
The advertisers tell us that happiness is a cigar called Hamlet.
Happiness is no such thing.
They should say sickness and death is a cigar called Hamlet.
The advertisers say satisfaction is some new model of car.
They should say that a new car which you cannot afford is called folly.
The open University in Britain says take a course with us and your life will be transformed.
The chances are that you will become more spiritually bankrupt.
While you are it, you can take a course in witchcraft in which I understand there are
more people involved in Britain than in Christianity.
True Transformation is an activity of the Holy Spirit.
We are told to make sure that you have some sort of insurance or pension.
It will give you peace of mind.
Ask the pensioners who scrimped and saved to see their pension or insurance worth next
to nothing, how much peace of mind do they enjoy? Daily we hear of new financial failures
and scandals where various now you see it now you don't Enron Accounting scams
are brought to light.
This is just a tiny sample of advertising which have turned
to using biblical qualities and ideals to sell their products.
In the UK, we are told that a good percentage of income Tax
reports are wrongly calculated by the Tax office.
We buy packets of product thinking that it appears to be
good value for money, only to find it is only three quarters full.
Of course we are told the product settles.
The various appointments you make to fix gas, electricity,
phones etc. are often pie in the sky. You might have taken time from work and no one shows up,
it has cost you money.
When you buy meat or chicken, you are most times paying
the price of the meat for the water which has been injected
or mechanically forced into the meat.
That is why you get so much water when you cook these things.
Take a look at a packet of cooked sliced beef sometime and look at the percentage of meat
in the packet.
You might be surprised to find that it can contain more than 100% of meat.
This is all to do with playing with the figures, the water content, and the cooking.
How many times have you bought meant or chicken which you
had carefully selected, only to find that it included a huge
chunk of cleverly concealed fat which you had to throw away?
In Britain we are told that power pylons are no danger to health,
however Russian research claims the opposite thing.
There are now claims that when mobile phone masts are installed
various cancers that did not exist in the area before, break out.
Exactly who can we trust ?
Jeremiah 9:4 Take ye heed every one of his neighbour, and trust ye not in any brother:
for every brother will utterly supplant, and every neighbour will walk with slanders.
Jeremiah 9:5 And they will deceive every one his neighbour, and will not speak the truth:
they have taught their tongue to speak lies, and weary themselves to commit iniquity.
Jeremiah 9:6 Thine habitation is in the midst of deceit; through deceit
they refuse to know me, saith the LORD.
This is an incredible indictment against humanity.
We lie to ourselves doing what pleases us and blatantly ignore
what God tells us. We even invoke the name of God blasphemously
to justify our wickedness instead of doing what we are told to do.
Jeremiah 22:3 3 Thus saith the LORD; Execute ye judgment and righteousness,
and deliver the spoiled out of the hand of the oppressor: and do no wrong,
do no violence to the stranger, the fatherless, nor the widow, neither shed innocent blood in this place.
We can claim to be Christians, Jews, Muslims, Hindus, or anyone, it makes no difference.
The question which we will answer sooner or later is this, do we do these things ?
Choose any part of the world that you wish and ask that question.
I think that you can honestly say that we do the completely opposite thing to what we are told.
How do we reason that we are going to by pass giving account of our wickedness to the Eternal?
If we are going to give account for even our idle words how much more so for our lies ?
Matthew 12:36 But I say unto you,
That every idle word that men shall speak, they shall give account thereof in the day of judgment.
We can walk around with our religious concepts even waving our bibles whilst promoting
all of the above wickedness.
Do we really believe deep down: That we are doing God's will?
That we will get away with it?
That we will be told 'Well done my son'?
If we do that is certain proof that we are living the lie.
People tell you whatever it is you want to hear.
The envelopes that tell you that you have already won a small
fortune, are all lies which we now accept as normal.
We have reached the crazy state that you can be dating
someone and the person might not even be the sex you thought that they were !!
Jeremiah 17:9 The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it?
There you have it in one sentence.
Jeremiah 9:8 8 Their tongue is as an arrow shot out; it speaketh deceit:
one speaketh peaceably to his neighbour with his mouth, but in heart he layeth his wait.
Our experience tells us that our leaders are not to be trusted.
Those at the top of the ladder or at the bottom of it are leading the people astray even to destruction.
Isaiah 9:15 The man who is honoured and responsible is the head,
and the prophet who gives false teaching is the tail.
Isaiah 9:16 For the guides of this people are the cause of their
wandering from the right way, and those who are guided by them come to destruction.
I wonder if people really understood what was really going on
whether they would be prepared to sacrifice their lives.
Many people make the supreme sacrifice of giving up their life for something that they believed in,
and thought that it was truly worthwhile. What happens when they find out that they had been told lies
and they caused blood to be needlessly shed?
Isaiah 59:3 For your hands are defiled with blood,
and your fingers with iniquity; your lips have spoken lies, your tongue mutters wickedness.
Lies cause people to die.
Note in the verse quoted earlier lies and murder were linked.
Satan was said to be a liar and murderer from the beginning.
Lies cause division and enmity between individuals and races.
The philosophy of divide and conquer is greatly assisted by lying.
Lying to turn peoples attention from the reality which they are facing to an engineered crisis,
even to the point that thousands of people are killed is becoming a standard political act.
We are told that US economy is a dreadful state.
Is the proposed war in Iraq a diversion, to hide the truth?
From where is the money to fight this war coming?
Is it that we just print a bundle more notes?
The fact that we think that money is worth something is another lie.
The Gulf War syndrome, is an illness from which apparently the US and British troops have
suffered. However, the respective governments have not identified the cause.
This is an interesting situation as none
of the French troops who fought in the same arena had this problem.
The US and Britain had received cocktails of drugs which the French refused. Now British troops
are being sent to the Gulf vials of drugs which were issued to them have been found washed
up on certain UK beaches. Maybe the troops do not believe what they are being told !
March 17 2003. Colin Powell says that the moment of truth is arriving regarding the war in Iraq.
He could not be more wrong.
The moment of Truth has always been here, it is simply that we have chosen to ignore it and replace
is it with our wisdom, which as we state is foolishness to God.
Truth is Jesus Christ.
If he was truly part of the equation in the present crisis, things would be quite different indeed.
Lies demoralise and generate hopelessness and fuels fear.
Lies are the complete foundation building blocks of the system of the god of this
present evil world, Satan.
Lies allow Christians to unwittingly carry out occult, even Satanic activities whilst at the same time
thinking what 'good' Christians we are, and that we are pleasing God.
Lying destroys trust.
I firmly believe that once trust has been destroyed it is utterly beyond our human ability
to completely restore the same level of trust. It takes a miracle from the Eternal to be healed
from this severe wound.
In the case of deception and disloyalty, it is easy for a subsequent and quite unrelated situation
to arise which causes doubt to arise because of a lie which took place many years previously
with entirely different people in even distant countries. Such can be the repercussion of a lie.
Adultery can be described as the acting out of a lie.
The lie precedes the act.
I am sure that we can see that lying is a very serious matter indeed,
and certainly not as trivial as we might have at first imagined.
Isaiah 59:1 Behold, the LORD’S hand is not shortened, that it cannot save;
neither his ear heavy, that it cannot hear:
Isaiah 59:2 But your iniquities have separated between you and your God,
and your sins have hid his face from you, that he will not hear.
Isaiah 59:3 For your hands are defiled with blood, and your fingers with iniquity;
your lips have spoken lies, your tongue hath muttered perverseness.
Isaiah 59:4 None calls for justice, nor any pleads for truth:
they trust in vanity, and speak lies; they conceive mischief, and bring forth iniquity.
Matthew 5:11 Blessed are you when they reproach and persecute
you, and while speaking lies, say every evil thing against you because of Me.
Fear, often unjustified, and jealousy often causes us to lie
in order to protect what we perceive to be our status or our position.
Leadership is not a solution, it is a symptom of a situation.
It is a direct spiritual reflection of those governed.
The spiritual and political shepherds have abandoned those in their care.
They speak lies which the people like and want to hear.
The result is that the so called Christians cause the name of God to be blasphemed.
We do not like our comfort zone to be threatened in any way.
If the people in the nation governed were God-fearing it would
not be under the harsh merciless whip, of a God-less and arrogant and even foolish leadership.
Romans 1:22 Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools,
Listen to the leaders of the nations speak what do you think ?
Does it sound like sense to you or foolishness ?
Aren't you hard pressed sometimes to even understand the contradictory
public statements that are being made?
We have not even reached the point of agreeing or disagreeing,
as we labour to understand what was actually said and meant.
There are whole Web Pages devoted to quoting the foolishness that
our leaders say. Some are even categorised by subject.
It is that bad.
Proverbs 15:2 The tongue of the wise uses knowledge aright:
but the mouth of fools pours out foolishness.
The nation would be blessed abundantly not cursed,
as most places are. Sickness, crime and poverty would not exist.
The weather and nature itself would not be working against us, but for us.
We would be having properly defined seasons, with the right amount of rain,
and sunshine when we need it.
Proverbs 12:5 The thoughts of the righteous are right: but the counsels of the wicked
Proverbs 12:20 Deceit is in the heart of them that imagine evil: but to the counsellors
of peace is joy.
Proverbs 20:17 Bread of deceit is sweet to a man; but afterwards his mouth
shall be filled with gravel.
Proverbs 26:26 Whose hatred is covered by deceit,
his wickedness shall be shown before the whole congregation.
The Tenth commandment tells us not to covet.
You shall not covet your neighbour’s house,
You shall not covet your neighbour’s wife, nor his manservant,
nor his maidservant, nor his ox, nor his ass, nor any thing that is thy neighbour’s.
Sadly many are coveting the oil and wealth of others.
With the constant talk of war our wealth is plundered from us
as the price of oil rockets benefiting the oil barons.
Here we see that some become great and rich by deceit.
Jeremiah 5:27 As a cage is full of birds,
so are their houses full of deceit: therefore they are become great, and waxed rich.
No-one has to teach a child to be naughty, to lie and to steal.
Almost as soon as a child is born, it is made very clear to you
that there is going to be a huge battle to see
who is going to be the boss.
This rebellious nature is with us from birth.
The beginning of liars
Psalms 58:3 The wicked are estranged from the womb:
They go astray as soon as they are born, speaking lies.
This end of liars.
Proverbs 19:9 A false witness shall not be unpunished;
And he that utters lies shall perish.
Referring to the new Jerusalem, we are told that no liars will enter it.
In Genesis the book of beginnings we are introduced to the lie
in Chapter 3 in Revelation we see the conclusion of the matter.
Revelation 21:27 And there shall in no wise enter into it any
thing that defiles, neither whatsoever works abomination,
or makes a lie:
but they which are written in the Lamb’s book of life.
Here are some common lies which countless millions
of Christians believe.
1. They teach that when you die you will go to heaven.
- This is not taught anywhere in the bible.
- The earth is the inheritance of the meek, however,
the record of our
- activities are kept in heaven.
Psalms 37:11 But the meek shall inherit the earth;
and shall delight themselves in the abundance of peace.
Matthew 5:5 Blessed are the meek: for they shall inherit the earth.
2. They teach that we have an immortal soul.
- The Bible says the soul that sins it shall die.
- Ezekiel 18:20 The soul that sin, it shall die. …
- We have a human spirit which is not the same thing.
- The human spirit is the container for us to receive God.
3. They teach that we should celebrate, Christmas and Easter.
Halloween and Valentines day are ok.
- The word Christmas does not appear anywhere in the entire bible.
- The word Easter appears once in the AV but everywhere else
- The same word is translated Passover, that is 26 times.
- In addition to Christmas and Easter,
- Halloween or All hallows and Valentines day are pagan days,
- which are an abomination to the Eternal.
4. They teach that the Task of a Christian is to persuade others to be saved,
that is to become Christians and to do works of charity.
- Truth: The Eternal uses whom He chooses, and determines
the time of their calling and the work that they should do.
- The Bible says John 6:44 No man can come to me,
- except the Father which has sent me draw him:
- and I will raise him up at the last day.
- Works of charity can be a diversion from what we are created
- to be and to do. It can easily be from the wrong tree.
- the Tree of Death, which is the knowledge of good and evil.
- Even atheists do charitable works.
- Nothing that an atheist and for that matter a Christian does
- is pleasing to our Father in heaven if it is not of Christ.
5. They teach that it is ok to be a homosexual priest.
We should be tolerant of perverted sexual conduct.
It is ok to have same sex marriages or unions as some churches prefer to call it.
- It was for this reason that Sodom and Gomorrah were destroyed.
- This immoral conduct gave rise to the word sodomy.
- Leviticus 20:13 If a man also lie with mankind,
- as he lies with a woman, both of them have committed an
abomination, - they shall surely be put to death; their blood shall be upon them.
- Leviticus 20:15 And if a man lie with a beast, he shall surely
- be put to death: and ye shall slay the beast.
6. They teach that it is ok to be involved in the multitude of New Age and
occult activities and other Far Eastern practices, including,
yoga, martial arts etc. and still be a Christian.
2 Chronicles 36:14 Moreover all the chief of the priests, and the people, transgressed
very much after all the abominations of the heathen; and polluted the house
of the LORD which he had hallowed in Jerusalem.
The practices of the heathens are called abominations and
we read that we enjoy following these things,
which we should completely abhor.
Ezra 6:21 And the children of Israel, which were come again out of captivity, and all such
as had separated themselves unto them from the filthiness of the heathen of the land,
to seek the LORD God of Israel, did eat,
These nations whose practices we adopt are heathen.
The practice of renaming a pagan practice Christian is to incur the wrath of God.
When the nation of Israel was put under a pagan nation, it was not a blessing but rather
a severe punishment. It happened repeatedly in the Old Testament era.
To think that we now feel that we can willingly welcome and absorb these pagan practices,
and be blessed by them is truly amazing.
David was aware that the heathen did not know God, we do not seem to know that today.
Psalms 79:6 Pour out thy wrath upon the heathen that have
not known you, and upon the kingdoms that have not called upon your name.
Psalms 33:10 The LORD brings the counsel of the heathen
to nothing: he makes the devices of the people of none effect.
We are clearly warned not to learn the way of the heathen.
Jeremiah 10:2 Thus says the LORD, Learn not the way of the heathen, and be not dismayed
at the signs of heaven; for the heathen are dismayed at them.
7. They teach that Murder under the name of abortion is acceptable.
Murder to carry out God's will is acceptable.
God's word says: Exodus 20:13 You shall not kill.
8. As Christians we can forget about Satan, he is of no concern to us.
The bible says:
1 Peter 5:8 Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion,
walks about, seeking whom he may devour:
- Would you simply ignore a roaring lion who is trying o destroy you?
- We are called to live a victorious overcoming life overcoming Satan.
- You cannot overcome, the enemy by ignoring him.
Revelation 12:10 And I heard a loud voice saying in heaven,
Now is come salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of his Christ:
for the accuser of our brethren is cast down, which accused them before our God day and night.
Revelation 12:11 And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their
testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death.
- We have to testify to the enemy
that he is a defeated demon
- who has already been overcome by the blood of the Lamb.
9. They teach that the Holy Spirit is a power.
- The Holy Spirit for us today is none other than
the resurrected Christ.
1 Corinthians15: 45 And so it is written,
The first man Adam was made a living soul;
the last Adam (Christ) was made a quickening spirit.
10. Many regard the Holy Spirit and Satan on more or less
the same level. They fear both in a similar way.
This is utterly wrong as God is love, this is the complete
opposite of point 8 the despicable devouring demon devil.
1 John 4:8 He that loves not knows not God; for God is love.
11. They teach that God the Father is a stern Old Man just waiting to swat us into oblivion.
- This shows a complete lack of understanding that God is a mystery.
- The Father, the Son and the Spirit are One God and in total oneness.
- He loves us so much that He came in the person of
Jesus Christ to die in our place for our sins, when he had no sin.
12.- Many believe that they can have one foot in the world
and the other in the body of Christ, the church.
Matthew 6:24 No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the
other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. You cannot serve God and mammon.
13. – They teach that the church is to control the membership and to rule them with a rod of iron.
- To control others is simply witchcraft, which is utterly wrong.
This is dealt with fully in the document 'The Overcomers'
14. - Our charitable works guarantee our salvation.
We are save by Grace.
Ephesians 2:8 For by grace are you saved through faith;
and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God:
15. - We are blessed because we keep certain regulations.
- For example: If you tithe you will receive material wealth.
We are blessed because God in his infinite mercy
has chosen to bless us. If we were dealt with by what we deserve we would all be dead.
Of course we should support those who feed us as everything we have belongs to the Eternal
in the first place.
16. - Once saved we can still be lost.
Judicial salvation cannot be lost, however, we can certainly lose our reward which is not
the same thing.
John 10.28 And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish,
neither shall any man pluck them out of my (Christ is speaking) hand.
29 My Father, which gave them me, is greater than all;
and no man is able to pluck them out of my Father’s hand.
Here we have a double confirmation we cannot loose judicial
salvation. We cannot be taken out of the Father's hand, nor Christ's hand.
They are one and the same.
17. - Today is the only day of Salvation.
It is only the day of salvation for the people whom the Eternal has called before the foundation
of the world in this age.
Ephesians 1:4 According as he has chosen us in him before the foundation of the world,
that we should be holy and without blame before him in love:
It is the Father who decides when we are called although
we were chosen before the foundation of the world.
John 6:44 No man can come to me, except the Father which has sent me draw him:
and I will raise him up at the last day.
18. Lucifer, the light bringer is God and not the God of the bible.
Lucifer is simply a created being.
Isaiah 14:12 How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! how are you
cut down to the ground, which didst weaken the nations!
The following verses give a historical description of Lucifer who sinned and became Satan
our adversary. This refers to Satan as most scholars agree.
Ezekiel 28:12 Son of man, take up a lamentation upon the king of Tyre, and say unto him,
Thus says the Lord GOD; You seal up the sum, full of wisdom, and perfect in beauty.
Ezekiel 28:13 You have been in Eden the garden of God;
every precious stone was your covering, the sardius, topaz, and the diamond, the beryl, the onyx,
and the jasper, the sapphire, the emerald, and the carbuncle, and gold: the workmanship
of thy tabrets and of thy pipes was prepared in you in the day that you were created.
Ezekiel 28:14 You are the anointed cherub that covers; and I have set thee so:
You were upon the holy mountain of God; you have walked up and down in the midst
of the stones of fire.
Ezekiel 28:15 You were perfect in your ways from the day that you were created, till iniquity
was found in thee.
Ezekiel 28:16 By the multitude of your merchandise they have filled the midst of you with violence,
and you have sinned: therefore I will cast you as profane out of the mountain of God:
and I will destroy you, O covering cherub, from the midst of the stones of fire.
Ezekiel 28:17 Your heart was lifted up because of your beauty,
you have corrupted your wisdom by reason of your brightness:
I will cast you to the ground, I will lay you before kings, that they may behold you.
It is true that he was the highest creation of the Eternal.
He, however, is just a defeated devil, who was destroyed by Christ's death on the cross.
He is just the temporary god of this world, whose time is almost completely up.
19. - They teach that there are many roads to Christ, therefore we should be tolerant of all faiths.
The Bible says that there is only one way and that
everyone will bow the knee in front of 'the Way', Christ.
John 14:6 Jesus said unto him, I am the way, the truth,
and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.
Philippians 2:10 That at the name of Jesus every knee
should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth.
Whoever you are, wherever you are, atheist or not, you will bow the knee,
even on the way to the Lake of fire..
20. – They teach that you must do your best and God will do the rest.
That sounds very good but where ever did we get the idea?
Did we find that principle in the bible?
It is rather the opposite.
God does the best and we rest.
The sooner that we realize our total inadequacy the better.
If we do not understand this, we will find that we are constantly put into situations
that are totally beyond our ability, and the only solution is Jesus Christ.
If we are honest we would admit that our best was just not good enough.
We could go even further, the more we try the worst it gets.
The solution is Christ.
When you cannot get along with your partner, your best is just not good enough.
In case you were trying your best for a very long time and the result was zero.
It was in your 'best' state that the problem somehow seemed to grow and magnify.
The reality is that we are good for one thing.
That is death.
The sooner that we realize that the better off we will be.
What we need is not to become better.
We need a new life, a resurrection life.
That is why Nicodemus was told
'You must be born again.'
John 3:3 Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto you,
Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.
He was a high flyer at the very top of the pile.
As the teacher of Israel he thought that some more first
class teaching from Christ would improve his situation.
If any one had tried his best it would have been him.
Read his credentials and you will see this.
However, in the final analysis his best was just not good enough.
He had to receive an entirely new and very different life.
It is the very same for each one of us.
Isaiah 64:6 But we are all as an unclean thing, and all our righteousness are as filthy rags;
and we all do fade as a leaf; and our iniquities, like the wind, have taken us away.
It is only the righteousness of Christ in us which transforms
us in to something acceptable to our Father in heaven.
We are called to listen and to obey what we are told.
When the Eternal wants us to do something.
He supplies everything.
We supply ourselves to be used as He chooses.
It is true that when living the 'Resurrection Life',
We should do what we are called to do, with all our might.
To work with all our might outside of what God has called
us to do is to be deceived and might even be sin.
The calling for each person will be different.
Some are called to earn money to support the work.
Others are called to teach etc., etc.
Ecclesiastes 9:10 Whatsoever your hand finds to do, do it with your might; for there is no work,
nor device, nor knowledge, nor wisdom, in the grave, whither you go.
21. Harry Potter and Lord of the Rings and all the TV
programs which feature demonic activity such as sorcery,
astrology, witchcraft even when portrayed by beautiful
'white' witches, in 'Bewitched', and talking to the dead, such as 'The Other Side'
are just good entertainment and fun.
Witchcraft is witchcraft be it black or white.
They are nothing not fun, but destructive activities as
we welcome demons into our homes and even our lives.
All these types of activities are abominations to God and will result in the full wrath of God.
Exodus 22:18 You shall not suffer a witch to live.
Deuteronomy 18:10 There shall not be found among you any one
that makes his son or his daughter to pass through the fire, or that uses divination,
or an observer of times, or an enchanter, or a witch..
The punishment for this, if unrepented is the Lake of Fire as previously mentioned.
22. The biggest lie is yet to come, anti-Christ is God.
We have already been deceived, by the Anti-Christ spirit,
that has already been working relentlessly for thousands of years.
2 Thessalonians 2:7 For the mystery of iniquity does already work:
only he who now lets will let, until he be taken out of the way.
This person yet to be revealed to us with be very persuasive, and intellectually astounding.
He will be doing lying signs and wonders with his assistant, the False Prophet.
They will produce and image that will breathe and speak and even condemn those who refuse
to worship this idol to death. Added to this he will provide a short lived peace and prosperity
to complete the deception. This will deceive most to accept and worship him as God.
Revelation 13:15 And he had power to give life unto the image of the beast, that the image
of the beast should both speak, and cause that as many as would not worship the image
of the beast should be killed.
If you are seeking and following signs and wonders you will be in severe trouble.
Even today the churches do not realize when they are involved in demonic or occult activity,
for example when they seek to control and manipulate the members. Many promote
Christmas and Easter.
Some even claim that the Satanic Harry Potter books lead people to Christ. How bizarre can it get?
The deception of the Anti-Christ will be so incredibly successful that absolutely everyone on planet
earth whose names are not written in the book of life will worship the Beast, that is Anti-Christ.
This is quite astounding.
Revelation 13:8 And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him, whose names are not written
in the book of life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world.
In the book of Revelation in which we are told that we will be blessed if we read and heed
this final book of the bible. We find seven letters to the church which applies to us today.
It is quite interesting that in every single letter the matter of lies is mentioned.
A. To the Church in Ephesus
Revelation 2:2 I know your works, and your labour, and your patience,
and how you cannot not bear them which are evil: and you have tried them which say
they are apostles, and are not, and have found them liars:
We see here that there are some that are claiming to be apostles, but in fact they are liars.
An apostle is one who is sent forth.
The Eternal did not send them forth and they are not speaking the Word of the Lord.
B. To the Church in Smyrna
Revelation 2:9 I know your works, and tribulation, and poverty, (but you are rich) and I know
the blasphemy of them which say they are Jews, and are not, but are the synagogue of Satan.
This is the first of two warnings we get telling us that there are some people who are claiming
to be Jews but they are not, but rather they are the stooges of Satan.
C. To the Church in Pergamum
Revelation 2:14 But I have a few things against you, because you have there them that hold
the doctrine of Balaam, who taught Balac to cast a stumbling block before the children of Israel,
to eat things sacrificed unto idols, and to commit fornication.
Revelation 2:15 So have you also them that hold the doctrine of the Nicolaitans, which thing I hate.
Here we have two disastrous false doctrines which the Eternal says he hates.
The first causes a stumbling block,
leading to idolatry and fornication .
The second is the manipulation and control of God's people.
This is nothing less than witchcraft.
The underlying principle of witchcraft is the controlling of others.
In many cases this is without their knowledge.
It is no wonder that the Eternal says I hate it.
D. To the Church in Thyatira
Revelation 2:20 Notwithstanding I have a few things against you, because you suffer that
woman Jezebel, which calls herself a prophetess, to teach and to seduce my servants
to commit fornication, and to eat things sacrificed unto idols.
Once again we have someone claiming to be of God when they are rather of the adversary.
Jezebel is a self styled prophetess who seduces the servants of God.
Jeremiah 23:26 How long shall this be in the heart of the prophets that prophesy lies?
yes, they are prophets of the deceit of their own heart;
Jeremiah 23:16 Thus says the LORD of hosts, Hearken not unto the words of the prophets
that prophesy unto you: they make you vain: they speak a vision of their own heart,
and not out of the mouth of the LORD.
Jeremiah 23:21 I have not sent these prophets, yet they ran: I have not spoken to them,
yet they prophesied.
Today there are many self-styled prophets literally doing
their own thing whilst claiming to be sent by the Eternal.
E. The Church in Sardis
Revelation 3:1 And unto the angel of the church in Sardis write; These things says he that has
the seven Spirits of God, and the seven stars; I know your works, that you have a name
that you live, and are dead.
In this church we see that this church had a reputation of being alive, however, the Eternal's
verdict was that it was not alive at all, but rather it was dead. There was a false perception
of this church that they were alive.
F. The Church in Philadelphia
Revelation 3:9 Behold, I will make them of the synagogue of Satan, which say they are Jews,
and are not, but do lie; behold, I will make them to come and worship before thy feet,
and to know that I have loved thee.
Here we see the second disclosure of the synagogue of Satan.
Those who lie, claiming to be Jews when they are not Jews, but are in fact the workers
of Satan. Of course there are Jews, but we need to carefully and prayerfully consider
all these people claiming to be Jews because we are clearly told twice that they are not,
but rather they are the co-workers of Satan.
To the best of my understanding there are two main groups.
The Jews and the Zionists who also claim to be Jews.
I am open to listen to anyone who knows differently.
G. The Church in Laodicea
Revelation 3:17 Because you say, I am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing;
and do not know that you are wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked:
Here is yet another situation where the church is living a lie. They think that they are
in one condition, however, Christ says that their position is the very opposite of what they think.
It is truly amazing to see that lies play such a very important part in all of these letters
to the churches. We have to pay attention to these warnings which we are given or suffer
the consequences if we ignore them.
The ultimate reward of the Overcomers is to be a part of the New Jerusalem.
This is true and sure because Christ, Himself said so and
He is the Truth in which there is no darkness whatsoever.
The conclusion to this message is very short indeed.
It is also very simple and easy to remember.
There are no mental gymnastics required.
There is one God.
1 Timothy 2:5 For there is one God, and one mediator between
God and men, the man Christ Jesus;
Christ is God. See our document : Jesus Is God
John1:1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was
with God, and the Word was God.
3 All things were made by him; and without him was not any
thing made that was made.
4 In him was life; and the life was the light of men.
Christ and the Father are one.
John 10:30 I and my Father are one.
We are the Temple of God
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?
Or are you not conscious that your body
is a house for the Holy Spirit which is in you,
and which has been given to you by God?
and you are not the owners of yourselves;
Christ is The Holy Spirit. See our document: The Holy Spirit Is God
1 Corinthians 15:45 And so it is written,
The first man Adam was made a living soul;
the last Adam (Christ) was made a quickening spirit.
Christ is The Truth.
We can therefore accept absolutely everything that He says, with complete assurance
and confidence. If we then pray for Christ to be our discernment and our wisdom.
We will not be deceived by the wiles of the devil. We are told that we should be aware
of his wiles but unfortunately most are not.
2 Corinthians 2:11 Lest Satan should get an advantage of us:
for we are not ignorant of his devices.
John 14:6 Jesus said unto him, I am the way,
the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.
1 John 1:5 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.
We have seen that God the Father, Christ and the Holy Spirit are one. They are in total agreement.
We have seen that we are vessels to contain this same God.
We have seen that God is Truth.
It therefore is imperative that we also be the Truth and speak and live the Truth.
We are also called to be lights to reflect the perfect Light and Truth which is Christ.
This is part of the spiritual warfare to which we are called.
We have to be living the Truth, the already victorious life
over our vanquished defeated lying enemy.
We have seen that there is a way out of this dilemma of lies.
It is Jesus Christ, The Truth.
Praise the Lord.
Come soon Lord Jesus.
