            The Holy Bible Is The Immutable  Living Word Of The Eternal God. 
                 
      The Only Bible we Recommend Is The King James / A.V. Bible.

       Here's the reason, shocking but enlightening truth:  The Bible Is Used To Deceive
                       
 

         Leviticus 26:17      

     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 

                               

                                      Pay Attention

 

         When she was told what she ought to do, my friend said ‘God had to find another way’.

            What has happened since that time to the circumstances that she was experiencing?

            It certainly has not been resolved, and neither has it become any better.

            What about you? 

            You might not say those words, but is this also your attitude?

            Have you created your own mitigating circumstances,

            in order not to carry out what you were told?

 

            Recently, I was lectured for around 40 minutes on what is expected from a Christian,

            as we wait on Christ to return, and sort out the mess. We have to do nothing, just wait

            patiently. This is just not true.  I had done nothing to deserve this quite unexpected

            dressing down. I agreed with much that was said, regarding focusing on Christ,

            and that He was the solution to all our problems, also that we are not saved by works.

            However, the conversation terminated very abruptly when I said, of course we are not saved

            by works but obedience is still required.

 

            We need to realise that without obedience to either the written word or the spoken word,

            to us, we can find ourselves in deep trouble.

 

            Why should God find another way?

            Is He not God?

            We must remember that we are mere dust rushing full speed to return to dust?

            The Potter calls the tune, not the clay.

 

            Jeremiah 18:6  O house of Israel, cannot I do with you as this potter? saith the LORD.

            Behold, as the clay is in the potter‘s hand, so are ye in mine hand, O house of Israel.

 

            It is quite staggering how we can allow pride to cloud our vision, and indeed our perception

            of the reality of our condition.

 

            I am surrounded by situations which are crying out for resolution.

            People are suffering needlessly, because they believe that they are right,

            and God has to find another way. Paradoxically these very same individuals believe that

            in the not too distant future, they will be Kings and Priests, or raptured away to some

            safe haven. They have chosen to gorge themselves from the tree of the knowledge of good

            and evil, therefore they have become blind, and they do not even know it.

 

            Revelation 3:14  And unto the angel of the church of the Laodiceans write;. . . .

            17  Because thou sayest, I am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing;

            and knowest not that thou art wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked:

 

            I would like to make it very clear that I am not claiming to be the font of all knowledge,

            nor that you will not find errors on my website. In fact our Rhema has clearly stated that

            there are errors on the site, and that is in spite of our very best efforts.

            I try to be very meticulous in the messages which I post, and in the things which I say,

            because I am fully aware that I am accountable.

            Some of the errors were a great shock to me.

            One example of this is that we were shown how utterly corrupt are most of the over

            400 translations of the bible.

 

            When errors are pointed out, I try to correct them or state clearly that there is a problem,

            and where the problem has occurred. 

            In His mercy the Eternal God continues to lead us into all Truth, often this can be painful,

            however, Truth is Truth, and that will never change.

            It is we that have to change.

 

            I was recently told by someone who is regarded as a scholar, that there were only a couple

            of translation errors between the New King James, and the King James.

            The implication is that there is nothing to be worried about.

             

            The reality is that there are 2289 words omitted from the New King James,

         and The NKJV has introduced between 80,000 to 100,000 word changes, 

       not counting all the 'thee's and 'ye's.

        It has changed the meaning of literally hundreds of verses, and needlessly altered thousands

       of words it has in other places translated just as they are in the Authorized Version

       they are supposedly revising. See: The Bible Used To Deceive

 

       We need to throw our theology out of the window, and let the inspiration,

       of the Holy Spirit guide us.

  

       Quoting the bible is not a sign of authenticity.

       It is our conduct that is important.

       Satan is always quoting the bible and he uses it to lead people into error.

       Many Satanic groups use and quote the bible.

      

       We all have to humble ourselves, if we are to progress, there is simply no other way.

      

       When we say that God has to find another way, it places us in a position above God.

       It means that as the Roman Catholics teach, the priest, right up to the pope,

       makes demands that God has to meet.

       He has no choice.

       This teaching and practice is outright blasphemy, and Idolatry.

 

       I know of many instances where people have been told what they need to do,

    and for one reason or another they have not complied.

    The end result is that they live a life of confusion,

and suffer needlessly, some right up to the point of contemplating suicide.

I will repeat something I have stated previously.

 

Often we can be told to do something that has no apparent bearing on our circumstances.   

 

We then let our adversary get the upper hand over us as we engage our superior intellect,

knowledge, and reasoning power, to work our way out of our dilemma, rather that simply

obeying what we have been told.

The end result is a disaster.

I see it all the time.

 

Even in areas in which I have a small amount of expertise, with computers.

I wonder why did the people bring their problems to me?

They already seem to have all the answers.

Why didn’t they simply carry out their ideas themselves?

 

I might say this is what we have to do.

They might then say, but I have done that many times before, and it didn’t make any difference,

or I cannot see how that is related to the problem in hand.

Worse, often they have a better idea, and because of this we move into the area

of selective listening.

I say do this.

They say yes, but do not carry out the instruction.

When I think that we are doing the same thing, we are not.

The end result is futility.

 

Computers are wonderful instructors for patience, obedience, humility, and perseverance.

 

Satan told Eve that there was a better way, and he offered it to her even without her even

asking for it.

Of course liar that he is, Satan seduced her, and made her sin.

 

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.

 

Since then we have all suffered as a consequence.

 

Genesis 2:4  And the serpent said unto the woman, Ye shall not surely die:

 5  For God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened,

 and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil.

 

 It is Satan who deceives us into thinking that there is a better, and often easier way.

 

 Naaman  is a classic example.

 He was a great and honorable man, but he was a leper.

 

2 Kings 5:1  Now Naaman, captain of the host of the king of Syria, was a great man

with his master,  and honourable, because by him the LORD had given deliverance unto Syria:

he was also a mighty man in valour, but he was a leper.

 

The king of Syria listened to the advice of a captured Israeli maid, and decided to send Naaman

to Israel to be healed.

He thought that the command, supported by a lot of wealth, ensured success.

 

2 Kings 5:5  And the king of Syria said, Go to, go, and I will send a letter unto the king of Israel.

And he departed, and took with him ten talents of silver, and six thousand pieces of gold,

and ten changes of raiment.

6  And he brought the letter to the king of Israel, saying, Now when this letter is come unto thee,

behold, I have therewith sent Naaman my servant to thee,

that thou mayest recover him of his leprosy.

 

Here we can see arrogance in the attitude, as he made demands on the king of Israel

 

When Naaman, and his entourage arrived, the king of Israel was distraught,

until Elisha came to his rescue.

 

2 Kings 5:8  And it was so, when Elisha the man of God had heard that the king of Israel

had rent his clothes,  that he sent to the king, saying, Wherefore hast thou rent thy clothes?

let him come now to me, and he shall know that there is a prophet in Israel.

9  So Naaman came with his horses and with his chariot, and stood at the door of the house

of Elisha.

10  And Elisha sent a messenger unto him, saying, Go and wash in Jordan seven times,

and thy flesh shall come again to thee, and thou shalt be clean.

 

Elisha’s advice was very simple.

Go and wash in Jordan seven times, and thou shalt be clean.

 

Naaman had it all worked out.

He had reasoned how his healing should occur.

 

2 Kings 5: 11  But Naaman was wroth, and went away, and said, Behold, I thought,

He will surely come out to me,

and stand,

and call on the name of the LORD his God,

and strike his hand over the place,

and recover the leper.

 

  Imagine the humiliation, when Elisha did not even turn up himself,

  but sent a messenger to tell Naaman what to do.

 

Furthermore he had no doubt whatsoever that the rivers of Damascus were better

than all the waters of Israel.

 

2 Kings 5: 12  Are not Abana and Pharpar, rivers of Damascus, better than all the waters

of Israel?

may I not wash in them, and be clean? So he turned and went away in a rage.

 

For all eternity Naaman will have to be grateful to his servants, who were much wiser than he was.

 

2 Kings 5: 13  And his servants came near, and spake unto him, and said, My father,

if the prophet had bid thee do some great thing, wouldest thou not have done it?

how much rather then, when he saith to thee, Wash, and be clean?

 

He obeyed, and was healed.

 

2 Kings 5: 14  Then went he down, and dipped himself seven times in Jordan,

according to the saying of the man of God:

and his flesh came again like unto the flesh of a little child,

and he was clean.

 

Did the Eternal God find a better way?

Of course not.

Naaman simply had to pay attention, and to obey.

 

It was not the washing that cured his leprosy.

It was Naaman’s obedience, under duress, I might add.

If he had not carried out Elisha’s instruction, he would have had leprosy

until the day that he died.

 

The question for us is this.

Is there a humiliating situation waiting around the corner to bring us to our senses?

Surely it must be much better to Pay Attention now, rather than to have a harsh humbling

experience to bring us to our senses?

Our Rhema clearly states that most will have to go through the Tribulation before the wake up.

This is very sad.

The Tribulation is the time when the rebellious are given into the hand of Satan,

who  does not know the meaning of the word ‘mercy’.

Deception, Torture, Suffering and Death are his full time occupation.

Do not give him a legal right to have you.

He accuses you daily before the Eternal God.

 

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.

 

Don’t let your minister deceive you.

It is not a matter that what you do makes you feel good.

The ‘Peace’ that permeates a true believer passes all understanding.

 

Philippians 4:7  And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding,

shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.

 

It is just there.

It is tangible.

It is real.

It requires no words.

Peace surrounds a true believer not confusion.

 

Often, we have no concept at all, that what we are told to do,

or not to do, would produce the results that our obedience or disobedience incurs.

 

Adam and Eve had no clue regarding the havoc that their disobedience would cause.

Neither did they have any idea that their rebellion would affect literally billions of people

for thousands of years.

 

I know of children that are suffering simply because their parents have refused

to carry out the instructions that they were given.

These same parents appear to be ‘good Christians’, who love their children.

None the less the children continue to suffer.

 

We all seem to have the inbuilt attitude that says yes Lord, we hear what you have said,

but you know that I do not like doing the particular thing that you asked me to do.

We then reason, I will do some other ‘good work’, that I prefer to do, and please let that

be acceptable in your sight.

 

Are we out of our tiny minds?

Do we think that Christ enjoyed being rejected, scourged, crucified,

and having the sins of the world dumped on Him?

 

Why do we think that we are told that we have to take up our cross?

Do we think that this is a small or easy thing?

 

Mark 8:34  And when he had called the people unto him with his disciples also,

he said unto them,

Whosoever will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me.

 

We need to get it into our heads that any thing at all that the Eternal God

says to us is very important.

 

Whether we understand it or not, we had better pay attention and obey.

If we fail to do this inevitably we will deservedly suffer needlessly. 

 

We have to be clear that if we are actually disobeying what we have already been

told to do, Fasting and Praying are of no use whatsoever.

We can have the whole world praying for us, it will make no difference,

unless of course they are praying for us to repent, and to obey.

 

Jeremiah 11:14  Therefore pray not thou for this people, neither lift up a cry or prayer

for them: for I will not hear them in the time that they cry unto me for their trouble.

 

Jeremiah 14:11  Then said the LORD unto me, Pray not for this people for their good.

12  When they fast, I will not hear their cry; and when they offer burnt offering

and an oblation,  I will not accept them: but I will consume them by the sword,

and by the famine, and by the pestilence.

 

Fasting and Praying are important,

but first of all, we have to be obeying and not in ‘rebellion’.

If we are actually practising what I am saying, we are in fact showing

by our living that, 

‘we have found a better way’,

rather than obey, we will pray.

You can believe whatever you want to believe, it just does not work that way.

 

You simply cannot be flapping around as a dynamic ‘Christian’, when in reality you are

 in rebellion against the clear word of the Eternal.

   Almost everyone to whom I have spoken recently has told me the very same thing,

   they are exceedingly busy.

   I am sure that they all are.  See: Thief of Time

   I just wonder how many entries our busyness will accrue in the book of life.

   These are important things to consider because we have been told that time is almost up,

   and that Christ will return in the life time of most of us.

 

Pay attention. 

It is not what others think that matters, but rather what the Eternal God thinks.

   Of course we should not go around condemning others, we should concentrate

first of all on sorting ourselves out.

 

We can easily fool those around us, but remember that we should not judge

simply by sight and hearing, but rather righteous judgment.

 

   John 7:24  Judge not according to the appearance, but judge righteous judgment.

 

This was how Christ operated.

 

Isaiah 11:3  And shall make him of quick understanding in the fear of the LORD:

and he shall not judge after the sight of his eyes,

neither reprove after the hearing of his ears:

 

Can you see how very important all these things are in this time of severe crisis,

which will only get worse.

There is much to be seriously considered in this document.

 

As I told someone recently Mid December 2006, I was at a meeting a good while ago,

and there was a discussion where a couple of people said that God does not speak to us today.

I interjected, and said that not only does God speak, but that He had spoken to them,

but that they did not like what they heard.

They said that is true, he had been spoken to them,

but as they did not like what they heard, they chose to ignore it.

Of course that is a great folly.

In one breath they claimed to be ‘Christians’, in the next breath they were happy to publicize

their rebellion, and to treat it very lightly.

 

We might well get away with selective listening to what our fellowman tells us,

but it will never work with the Eternal God.

 

Other times we always want to be right, a sort of show of superiority.

This is also silly.

Some time ago someone explained in writing what he thought that a scripture meant.

I wrote a document, and posted it on the web and I gave what I felt was a much more

accurate explanation, without making any mention of this person.

 

Later when I saw him, he then gave me the explanation of my document,

as if it was all his own work.

It does not make any difference to me whatsoever, but we certainly need to realise

that it is very possible that in some cases we might well be wrong,

and suffer as a consequence.

This person is in confusion.

We are told that confusion is not of God.

 

1 Corinthians 14:33  For God is not the author of confusion, but of peace,

as in all churches of the saints.

 

Sometimes we need to listen attentively, and acknowledge our error, at least to ourselves.

 

One problem is that often we do not like the messenger, who is used to help us.

I remember I gave a sermon in a church long ago, and immediately after the meeting,

one person came up to me, and got a minister’s attention, so that he could hear

what I was going to be told. I was quite relaxed about the whole thing.

 

He then said “That message would have been a good one,

if it had been give by anyone else but you”.

 

I am telling you all these things so that you can see how very easy it is to let prejudice of one

sort or another cause us to stumble, and to miss the mark.

If you are not paying attention, focussing on Christ, and dealing with the attacks launched

against us in the proper manner, you will end up in trouble.

 

I suggest to everyone, who has heard from the Eternal God directly, or by a genuine word

from a servant of the Most High God, or who has been pointed to a word of scripture,

that they carefully review what they have been told, and see if they have carefully carried out

what they have been told to do, without making any excuses whatsoever.

 

I am convinced to the uttermost that negligence, carelessness or even rebellion in the above area,

can sometimes be the root cause of many of our problems.

Do not make the mistake of thinking that you cannot see any link between your problems

and what you have failed to do, and that your lack of obedience does not really matter.

 

The only link might be obedience.

 

How could walking around the city of Jericho for 7 days cause the walls to tumble down?

 

Joshua 6:2  And the LORD said unto Joshua, See, I have given into thine hand Jericho,

and the king thereof, and the mighty men of valour.

3  And ye shall compass the city, all ye men of war, and go round about the city once.

Thus shalt thou do six days.

4  And seven priests shall bear before the ark seven trumpets of rams’ horns:

and the seventh day ye shall compass the city seven times,

and the priests shall blow with the trumpets.

5  And it shall come to pass, that when they make a long blast with the ram’s horn,

and when ye hear the sound of the trumpet, all the people shall shout with a great shout;

and the wall of the city shall fall down flat,

and the people shall ascend up every man straight before him.

 

What is the relationship between being silent for 6 days, shouting on the seventh day,

and walking around the city for 7 days?

The only relationship was obedience to what they were told.

If they had walked around the city for 5 days, shouting, and then they thought,

this is a waste of time, and quit, Jericho would not have fallen.

 

I have to mention that the problems of which I have experience are literally worldwide,

Britain, Europe, Africa, New Zealand, America, Canada and the Caribbean.

I also know that the very same conditions exist in other areas, not mentioned because

the same Satanic systems are in place.

 

We need to be very careful that at no time we follow men, but rather we need to seek guidance

from God. We must pay attention, listen and obey.

 

Men, who are themselves lost and in confusion, can only lead their followers astray.

 

It has come to my attention that offshoots of the Worldwide Church of God,

are enforcing the following rule.

If members of your family do not belong to the same organisation as you do,

you are forbidden to visit, or stay with the non member family members.

You are to utterly disassociate yourself from them.

That supposedly Christian group has practices right out of Satan’s top drawer.

 

Pay attention

 

Seek your own guidance from the Eternal God on this Satanic abomination.

 

Quit the church, your salvation is not at risk by this lie from our adversary.

 

Revelation 2:15  So hast thou also them that hold the doctrine of the Nicolaitans,

which thing I hate.

 

          This what the Eternal hates.

 

  Definition of Nicolaitanes:

  From Niko, “to conquer” and laos, the people, or laity.

  So this is referring to the Clergy lording it over their members.

 

If this applies to you, then you are suffering needlessly.

Obey the command to come out of Babylon before it is too late.

See: You live in Babylon

 

The point is simply this.

If you have received ‘Rhema’, or you might call ‘Guidance’, over the past year or two,

go over it carefully, and see if there is anything that you might have missed,

or if there is something on which you might need further clarification, then seek it.

It can quite easily be the case that some of the problems that you are experiencing might

be directly related to something that you have not done, and that you have been told to do.

 

Carefully consider your condition, and relate it to how the Eternal God says that we should be.

Then take the appropriate action.

 

Here is the final reason why it is so very important to ‘Pay Attention’.

Your very survival will depend on it in the coming days.

Whilst some are playing intellectual mind games, the battle now, and in the future

is a very real hot war, and it is going to get substantially hotter.

Be in no doubt that there are going to be casualties.

          There will be, and the less prepared you are, the greater is the chance that you will

          be a victim, rather than one who is walking and living in the victory of Christ.

 

          Our constant message has been, cut out the middle man and have a direct

relationship with the Eternal God.   See: What Must I Do Now ?

 

We have been repeatedly told that right now we should be fighting against Satan,

in the name of Christ, and to overcome him by the blood of the Lamb.

We must not try to do this in our own strength, as it cannot be done.

Do not just wait on the big war to come. It does not work that way.

There are many daily battles to be fought now.

You have to be victorious in small things before you can be engaged in big battles.

 

We need to be fully practised in dealing with the situations that we encounter on a day

to day basis.  If we cannot do this now in a time of relative calm, how are we going to cope

when all the powers of hell are let loose as they soon will be?

The answer is that we will not be able to do so.

So in effect this is a call to arms.

 

In the West Indies when we expected a hurricane, we prepared for it in the best way that

we could. We closed the storm shutters, and put on external battens to try to ensure that

the windows and doors did not fly open.

 

We also have to be prepared.

I alluded to this earlier, check carefully and see if by any chance we might be doing

something that is giving Satan a legal right to harass us, when this should not be happening.

It is for this reason I am saying check your Rhema.

If we give any opening, he will be in like a shot.

 

The forces that are going to come out of the ‘pit’, already exist, they are all ready to go.

 

Our Rhema in 2003 said

 

JESUS CHRIST IS COMING BACK TO THIS EARTH IN YOUR LIFETIME.”

 

I hope that we can see the urgency.

 

Am I pointing a finger at anyone?

Hardly.

We are all in the exact same boat.

 

Let us all seek to be careful, to pay attention, and to be meticulous about what

we have been told to do.

This can be a great turning point in all our lives.

 

                                     The only way out of our dilemmas is Jesus Christ.

                                                     He is the only way of escape.

                                                                Praise the Lord.

                                                        Come soon Lord Jesus.

                                                                      Amen.
