Isaiah 9:6 For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given:
and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful,
Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.
The above scripture tells us that Christ is the Prince of Peace and we are also told
that Christ is our Peace.
Ephesians 2:14 For he (Christ) is our peace, who hath made both one,
and hath broken down the middle wall of partition between us;
However, we are told that Christ came not to send Peace but a sword.
Matthew 10:34 Think not that I am come to send peace on earth:
I came not to send peace, but a sword.
We can and often expect that when we become truly converted that we will experience
‘Peace’ in our relationships. In most cases this simply does not happen.
In fact the very opposite occurs.
We have families at war.
There is a simple explanation.
We have been told that Satan has deceived the whole world Revelation 12:9.
There are no exceptions.
This means that the celebrated theologian, often self proclaimed prophets and apostles,
priests, ministers, your church, you and I have been deceived.
Does this suddenly stop when you become a ‘Christian’, born from above?
The reality is that it does not.
In fact it is normal for the situation to become worse.
Understandably as new believers we earnestly hold on to more mature believers to help
us in our ‘Christian’ walk.
This is natural, however, we are quite naive if we believe that some how Satan has not a plan
in place to ensnare us regardless of which road we walk.
He has a church to suit every person.
Whatever it is you would like, you can find it if you look.
Churches which promote their own agenda, even witchcraft and sex.
Christ said that when He ascended into heaven that He would send the Spirit of Truth,
who will guide us into all truth.
John 16:13 Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth:
for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear,
that shall he speak: and he will shew you things to come.
This was none other than Himself, as the Holy Spirit.
John 14:6 Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life:
no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.
As we humble ourselves, listen and obey the Eternal, He will continue to give us
more and more truth, or to put it another give us more of Himself.
This moves us more and more out of deception.
Salvation is not an intellectual exercise, as many would have us believe.
If Salvation was simply dependent on scholarship, with all our institutions of higher learning
how could we get it so wrong?
How could the world be in its death throes?
Although of course we should study as we have been told, often it creates problems of pride
for many who have studied diligently for years from those whom they thought were the best
They find it very hard to believe that they are still deceived on basic things.
They cannot understand how this could happen.
One of many examples is that moist Christians say that the Sabbath is Sunday, but this is
not according to the Word of God. By definition it is the Seventh day of the week, Saturday.
Just implementing Sabbath keeping by one member, can tear a family to shreds.
When Christ said that He did not come to bring Peace but a sword, this sword which comes
out of his mouth is ‘The Word of God’.
When Satan’s deception is unwrapped from around the Word of God,
it will cause one person who does not accept the Truth to be set against one who does.
If a person has the truth about the Sabbath made clear to them and they then want
to obey, all sorts of problems will immediately result.
Problems will arise at work as the person tries to stop working on the Sabbath
and yet keep their job.
Truly a sword has been unleashed.
It does not matter whether the person is single or in a family, what is certain is that
suddenly you will be severely tested to see whether your are serious about your calling or not.
This Sword, the Word of God will separate truth from error no matter how tiny the error is,
even if they are as close and embedded together as bone which is filled with marrow.
Hebrews 4:12 For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged sword
piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit,
and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.
Just this scripture alone sends believers into a tail spin.
Some say there is no spirit in man, some say there is no soul,
but this verse claims it can split the soul from the spirit.
It also distinguishes between thoughts and intents.
We might think that intellectual purity is truth,
but rather Truth is God and deception is Satan.
The precious has to be separated from the vile.
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.
It is a fact of history that Satan has played with even our most cherished and respected
book the bible.
There are comments and words in Italics that change or hide the meaning of sentences.
Is it insignificant that many bibles have freemason symbols on them?
Did not the ‘Mother of Harlots’ have a part to play with what over 1 billion people accept as the bible?
Some groups which call themselves churches have their own translations of the bible.
The Jehovah Witnesses are one such group with 6,500,000 members.
The Mormons or Church of the Latter day Saints claim 12,000,000 members,
but they are having trouble with their new bible
On page 385 of this book we pointed out that "The Mormon Church is faced with a peculiar dilemma
with regard to Joseph Smith's 'inspired revision.' They cannot reject it entirely without admitting
that he was a deceiver. On the other hand, if they were to print the revision and fully endorse it,
they would be faced with unsurmountable problems. The contents of the 'inspired revision'
actually contradict doctrines that are now taught in the Mormon Church.

There are other groups who publish their own bibles.
Surely we can see that when the Truth of the Word of God is made clear,
there will be all sorts of explosions.
Doe we think that because of the closing statements in the book of Revelation that no one would
dare to tamper with the Word of God?
Revelation 22:18 For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy
of this book, If any man shall add unto these things,
God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book:
19 And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy,
God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city,
and from the things which are written in this book.
Just the very fact that the Eternal made this statement,
we can be assured that man tampered with His Word, no doubt under the direction of Satan.
Fortunately for us whether man has tampered with it or not the actual Word of the Eternal
does not change, and it is not actually accessible to man.
Therefore regardless of what we hide, distort, omit and change, what was originally said
will take place exactly as stated, whether we have it or not.
Malachi 3:6 For I am the LORD, I change not; therefore ye sons of Jacob are not consumed.
Our research has shown that the Book of Enoch was once in the bible.
Where is it now?
The book of Jasher is mentioned twice in the bible, but it is not included.
Why is that?
We could say that these were two attempts to blunt the Sword of the Word of the Lord.
Both of these are available for free download here.
Joshua 10:13 And the sun stood still, and the moon stayed,
until the people had avenged themselves upon their enemies.
Is not this written in the book of Jasher?
So the sun stood still in the midst of heaven, and hasted not to go down about a whole day.
2 Samuel 1:18 (Also he bade them teach the children of Judah the use of the bow: behold,
it is written in the book of Jasher.)
Here are some other books that existed or still exist although we do not have access to them.
I wonder if they just might be hidden in the vast archives of the Vatican.
Numbers 21:14 Wherefore it is said in the book of the wars of the LORD,
What he did in the Red sea, and in the brooks of Arnon,
1 Kings 11:41 And the rest of the acts of Solomon, and all that he did, and his wisdom,
are they not written in the book of the acts of Solomon?
– I have seen a book purporting to be this
2 Chronicles 12:15 Now the acts of Rehoboam, first and last,
are they not written in the book of Shemaiah the prophet, and of Iddo the seer
And there were wars between Rehoboam and Jeroboam continually.
Note these are not spurious books.
You see just when you thought you had the whole bible you can see you do not.
Now all these facts can really wreck a relationship as arguments result from this knowledge.
We do not need to worry as all that we need to know at this time is still in the bible.
The Eternal has seen to that.
His Word is still razor sharp.
As we understand and as we are led into all truth of who we really are and how we should
and could live which goes far beyond commandment keeping, we will become effective warriors,
who are also wielding the Sword of Truth.
It is for this reason that our adversary, Satan, the Devil works unceasingly against us.
He has to do everything to stop us making inroads into his kingdom and setting the captives free.
Christian’s have been utterly brainwashed from youth to accept the teaching from their schools,
universities, and parents, even when these can be shown to be wrong.
There is great fear to accept what will literally turn their world upside down.
Keeping people in churches is a master-stroke of our enemy.
You only have to control the leadership to control thousands and thousands of deceived members,
who have no idea that they are being led up the garden path.
If we would obey the command to ‘Come out of her My People, then listen to and obey the Eternal,
it would be a start.
Then if each person helps another to do the same thing, this will cause havoc in Satan’s kingdom.
Even if an individual was destroyed an entire congregation would not be affected as there was
no such thing in the first place.
Revelation 18:4 And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, my people,
that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues.
The Sword which comes out of the mouth of Christ will destroy all of Satan’s followers.
Revelation 19:15 And out of his mouth goeth a sharp sword, that with it he should smite the nations:
and he shall rule them with a rod of iron: and he treadeth the winepress of the fierceness
and wrath of Almighty God.
Revelation 19:21 And the remnant were slain with the sword of him that sat upon the horse,
which sword proceeded out of his mouth: and all the fowls were filled with their flesh.
We have seen that when the Word of God separates truth from error the following happens:
Matthew 10:34 Think not that I am come to send peace on earth:
I came not to send peace, but a sword.
35 For I am come to set a man at variance against his father,
and the daughter against her mother, and the daughter in law against her mother in law.
36 And a man’s foes shall be they of his own household.
37 He that loveth father or mother more than me is not worthy of me:
and he that loveth son or daughter more than me is not worthy of me.
38 And he that taketh not his cross, and followeth after me, is not worthy of me.

It is easy to see from the facts given here that the Truth really challenges
us to the uttermost, especially when it highlights errors which we have
sincerely embraced for a very long time.
Some prefer to pretend to be blind rather than to face the facts.
The truth is that sooner or later we will have to face the Truth, whether we like it or not.
The only way out of this dilemma is Jesus Christ.
He is the only way of escape.
Praise the Lord.
Come soon Lord Jesus.
