Blessings in the name of Jesus Christ, our Lord and Saviour,
I agree with the content of the message that you are sharing,
however the anger I since in your words is not the way God through
Christ taught us to share the Gospel.
Would you be willing to hear what someone had to say
if they spoke to you in such a manner?
Felt led to share that with you,
Greetings Brother Jerry,
Thank you for your letter.
You are very correct about the anger.
However, you will notice in this message and the rest
of my website http://www.peterjamesx.com
that my anger is not directed at people at all, but rather Satan
and his Satanic system which enslaves and even kills those unfortunate
enough to be trapped in it.
We truly love all people, check out the website and see for yourself.
This was not really a sharing of the gospel.
This was a blast at a major stronghold of the enemy.
It is the wanton destruction of people that concerns me,
and so few are speaking or doing
anything about it. One reason is because today it is very dangerous
to speak the truth.
You can literally vanish without a trace.
I can go further if the Eternal God was not protecting me and the Website,
we would have been eliminated long ago. Rest assured they have tried
and still do so.
For me the warfare is very real and not an intellectual exercise.
Christ was not simply a 'peace and love' person.
He told it as it was in reality.
He meant what he said, every single time.
He said that He did not come to bring Peace but a sword.
He called his enemies children of Satan, now that is a very hard statement.
On our Rhema documents we were told to put the following.
“ YOUR HOUSE IS ON FIRE!!! Come Drink Of The Water of Life.”
which of course we do.
That single verse sums up what we do.
I am sure that you will agree that it is absolutely no good telling someone
how beautiful the garden in the front of the house is, while behind them
the house is burning down.
Please do not think that I do not appreciate your email, I very much do,
but just thought needed to clarify our position.
Paul Mason wrote:
"Be with us, dear Father, as we seek to know Jesus better and obey
His words more faithfully as we read and share Your holy Scriptures,
which find their center in Him. Please open our eyes, our ears,
our heart, and our mind, dear Father, so that we can appropriate
Your message into our life. Bless us, please dear Father,
so that what we hear in Your Word is seen in our life.
In His Name, Jesus, Son of God and Son of Man, we pray. Amen."
As you know my Brethren, today is National day of Prayer.
Did you know that some 18 million Christians are expected to honor
our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ in prayer participation today?
There are over 1 Billion who claim to be catholic,
which is roughly 1/6 of the worlds population.
I have long time been bothered by the Roman catholic religion
adopting the sub-title of christian. (My Opinion), catholic christian
is an oxymoron.
I say that because I know that when one is among the religious
organizations who comes to reality, (Truth in the Word and drawn
Salvation through Christ), they soon can not stand among the false
doctrine and traditional idolization of man-made deity.
Brother Jerry, I don't really sense anger in Pastor James teaching
of the subject. As for the method of Preaching the Gospel of Christ,
some of what any of us share may from time to time seem bold,
harsh, too direct, or otherwise portray a sense of anger.
Although many time when speaking in the Spirit we are gentle
and soft with delivery of Bible Truth, the Word is not and should
not be sugar coated. Mark 4:24-25 say,
Consider carefully what you hear," He continued.
With the measure you use, it will be measured to you, and even more.
Whoever has will be given more; whoever does not have,
even what he has will be taken from him." "O be careful little ears
what you hear, for the Father up above is looking down in love,
so be careful little ears what you hear." God doesn't want to just
be heard aloud, He wants His Word to enter our systems
and change our lives. The more we receive the blessing
of God's Words, the more it should change us.
If it doesn't, the problem isn't with the message but with the listener.
Now I would like to comment on some of the select Scripture
our Brother used in delivering this message.
Christ teaches His disciples to pray, and quickens and encourages
them/us to be frequent, instant, and importunate in prayer.
He fully answers the blasphemous imputation of the Pharisees,
who charged Him with casting out devils by virtue of a compact
and confederacy with Beelzebub, the prince of the devils,
and shows the absurdity and wickedness of it.
Prayer is one of the great laws of natural religion.
That man is a brute, is a monster, that never prays,
that never gives glory to his Maker, nor feels his favour,
nor owns his dependence upon Him.
One great design therefore of Christianity is to 'assist us in prayer',
to enforce the duty upon us, to instruct us in it, and encourage us
to expect advantage by it. Rather than long, ornate, and lofty prayers,
God wants us to approach Him as Father, and speak with Him
about the most basic everyday issues of our lives.
"Dear Father, thank You for being a holy God who is also near.
Please do Your will in our life and use us to Your glory.
In Jesus' Name. Amen."
He, (Christ),warns His disciples not to imitate their hypocrisy
and pride. He exhibits a charge against them for divers high crimes
and misdemeanors, corrupting the law, opposing the Gospel,
and treacherous dealing both with God and man, and to each article
He prefixes a woe. They/we are forbidden to ascribe such titles
to others, "Call no man your father upon the earth;" constitute
no man the father of your religion, that is, the founder, author,
director, and governor, of it.’’ The fathers of our flesh must be called
'fathers', and as such we must 'give them reverence;'
but God only must be allowed as "the Father of our spirits",
Heb. 12:9. Our religion must not be derived from, or made to depend
upon, any man. We are born again to the spiritual and divine life,
"not of corruptible seed, but by the word of God; not of the will
of the flesh, or the will of man, but of God."
Paul calls himself 'a Father' to those whose conversion
he had been an instrument of, 1 Co. 4:15; Phil. 10, but he pretends
to no dominion over them, and uses that title to denote, not authority,
but affection, therefore he calls them not his 'obliged',
but his "beloved", sons, 1 Co. 4:14.
Concerning His Father and their father, here is His discourse
in answer to their blasphemous reproaches.
While we often talk about Jesus as our Lord and Savior,
we can also find it easy to ignore His voice. As we read and speak
the Word, let's do it also as a search for the heart of Jesus and ask
God to help us know Him better.
Having thus disproved their relation both to Abraham and to God,
He comes next to tell them plainly whose children they were,
"You are of your father the devil", v. 44.
If they were not God’s children, they were the devil’s,
for God and satan divide the world of mankind,
the devil is 'therefore' said to "work in the children of disobedience",
Eph. 2:2. All wicked people are the devil’s children,
"children of Belial" 2 Co. 6:15, the serpent’s seed Gen. 3:15, children
of the wicked one, Mt. 13:38. They partake of his nature,
bear his image, obey his commands, and follow his example.
Idolaters "said to a stock, Thou art our father", Jer. 2:27.
This is a high charge, and sounds very harsh and horrid,
that any of the children of men, especially the church’s children,
should be called "children of the devil", and therefore our Saviour
fully proves it. "The lusts of your father you will do, thelete poiein.
"You do the devil’s lusts, the lusts which he would have you to fulfill;
you gratify and please him, and comply with his temptation,
and are "led captive by him at his will: nay, you do those lusts
which the devil himself fulfils.’’
Fleshly lusts and worldly lusts the devil tempts men to, but,
being a spirit, he cannot fulfil them himself.
The peculiar lusts of the devil are "spiritual wickedness",
the lusts of the intellectual powers, and their corrupt reasonings,
pride and envy, and wrath and malice, enmity to that which is good,
and enticing others to that which is evil, these are lusts which
the devil fulfils, and those who are under the dominion of these lusts
resemble the devil, as the child does the parent.
The more there is of contemplation, and contrivance,
and secret complacency, in
sin, the more it resembles the "lusts of the devil."
This lays down the rule of judgment according to which God will deal with
the children of men in determining them to their everlasting state,
and it agrees with that very ancient rule laid down,
Gen. 4:7, "If though doest well, shalt thou not be accepted?’’
But, "if not, sin,’’ the punishment of sin, "lies at the door.’’
Here is the corrupt proverb used by the profane Jews, which gave
occasion to the message here sent them, and made it necessary for the
justifying of God in His dealings with them, v. 1-3.
The reply given to this proverb, in which God asserts in general His own
sovereignty and justice. Woe to the wicked, it shall be ill with them.
All souls are His, all created by Him and for Him, and accountable to Him.
"As the soul of the father, so the soul of the son, is mine."
Our earthly parents are only the 'fathers of our flesh',
our souls are not theirs, God challenges them.
Christians are directed to acknowledge their faults one to another,
and to pray one for another, and the efficacy of prayer is proved,
v. 16–18. And, it is recommended to us to do what we can
for bringing back those that stray from the ways of truth.
When someone wanders from the path of God, let's not take
that rebellion frivolously. God has given us the tremendous blessing
of carrying on the work of our Savior, Who came to seek and save
the lost! The confession here required is that of Christians
to one another, and not, as the papists would have it, to a priest.
Where persons have injured one another, acts of injustice
must be confessed to those against whom they have been committed.
Where persons have tempted one another to sin or have consented
in the same evil actions, there they ought mutually to blame
themselves and excite each other to repentance.
Where crimes are of a public nature, and have done any public
mischief, there they ought to be more publicly confessed,
so as may best reach to all who are concerned.
And sometimes it may be well to confess our faults to some prudent
minister or praying friend, that he may help us to plead with God
for mercy and pardon. But then we are not to think that James puts
us upon telling everything that we are conscious is amiss in ourselves
or in one another, but so far as confession is necessary to our
reconciliation with such as are at variance with us,
or for gaining information in any point of conscience and making
our own spirits quiet and easy, so far we should be ready
to confess our faults.
And sometimes also it may be of good use
to Christians to disclose their peculiar weaknesses and infirmities
to one another, where there are great intimacies and friendships,
and where they may help each other by their prayers to obtain pardon
of their sins and power against them. Those who make confession
of their faults one to another should thereupon pray with and
for one another. "I tell you the truth, a time is coming and has now
come when the dead will hear the voice of the Son of God and those
who hear will live." John 5:25 They, "the dead" will, or do,
hear the voice of Jesus, not man.
The message sent to Ephesus. The advice and counsel given
them from Christ, "Remember therefore whence thou hast fallen,
and repent". Those that have lost their first love "must remember
whence they have fallen", they must compare their present with
their former state, and consider how much better it was with them
then than now, how much peace, strength, purity, and pleasure
they have lost, by leaving their first love, how much more comfortably
they could lie down and sleep at night, how much more cheerfully
they could awake in the morning, how much better they could bear
afflictions, and how much more becomingly they could enjoy the
favors of Providence, how much easier the thoughts of death
were to them, and how much stronger their desires
and hopes of heaven.
They must repent. They must be inwardly grieved and ashamed
for their sinful declension, they must blame themselves,
and shame themselves, for it, and humbly confess it in the sight
of God, and judge and condemn themselves for it.
They must return and do their first works. They must as it were begin
again, go back step by step, till they come to the place where
they took the first false step, they must endeavor to revive
and recover their first zeal, tenderness, and seriousness,
and must pray as earnestly, and watch as diligently,
as they did when they first set out in the ways of God.
The Nicolaitans were a loose sect who sheltered themselves
under the name of Christianity. They held hateful doctrines,
and they were guilty of hateful deeds, hateful to Christ and
to all true Christians, and it is mentioned to the praise of the church
of Ephesus that they had a just zeal and abhorrence of those wicked
doctrines and practices. An indifference of spirit between truth
and error, good and evil, may be called "charity" and "meekness",
but it is not pleasing to Christ. Our Saviour subjoins this kind
commendation to His severe threatening, to make the advice
He cautions his disciples against being herein like them,
herein they must not do after their works, "But be not ye called so,
for ye shall not be of such a spirit,’’ It is repeated twice,
"Be not called Rabbi, neither be ye called Master or Guide",
not that it is unlawful to give civil respect to 'those that are over us
in the Lord', it is an instance of the honour and esteem which it is
our duty to show them, but, Christ’s ministers must not affect the
name of "Rabbi" or "Master", by way of distinction from other people,
it is not agreeable to the simplicity of the Gospel, for them to covet
or accept the honour which they have that are in kings’ palaces.
They must not assume the authority and dominion implied in those
names, they must not be magisterial, nor domineer over their Brethren,
or over God’s heritage, as if they had dominion over the faith
of Christians, what they received of the Lord, all must receive from
them, but in other things they must not make their opinions and
wills a rule and standard to all other people, to be admitted with
an implicit obedience. Christ only is our Master, ministers are
but ushers in the school. Christ only is the Master, the great Prophet,
whom we must hear, and be ruled and overruled by, whose word
must be an oracle and a law to us, "Verily I say unto you",
must be enough to us. And if He only be our Master,
then for His ministers to set up for dictators, and to pretend
to a supremacy and an infallibility, is a daring usurpation of that
honour of Christ which He will not give to another.

Be Humble Repent Listen To The Eternal God Obey Him.
This is very easy to say, but I assure you that it is physically impossible,
without the empowerment of the Eternal God.
Attending some Church, going up to an altar call, or isolating yourself,
in the hope that somehow it will all be alright, will not do it.
What are you going to do about it before it is too late?
See The Video: Obedience Is The Only Way Of Escape
. The only way out of this dilemma is Jesus Christ.
. He is the only way of escape.
