A Criminal Act!

Answer me something, what if a medical research scientist was absolutely certain that he had discovered a drug that would stop almost any cancer in its progress, even reversing the same and bringing about total health once again to the cancer victim.  Do you think it would be criminal of him to keep this discovery to himself, refusing to share this great news with anyone else?  Of course it would.  In the 6th and 7th chapters of 2 Kings we are given the account of a terrible famine then raging in the city of Samaria, Israel due to a siege from the Syrian army, a famine so prolonged and devastating that the inhabitants of Samaria had resorted to cannibalism.  God intervened and one night the Syrian army heard what they thought was the sound of the Egyptian army’s chariots thundering toward them.  They arose and fled immediately, leaving behind all their equipment, including all their food stores and drink.  Four lepers locked outside the city gates decide they will surrender themselves to the Syrian army and thereby escape dying from hunger. As they enter the Syrian camp, they find it deserted.  Not only did they eat and drink to their hearts content, they also found gold, silver and clothing in abundance.  “Then they said to one another, ‘We are not doing right.  This day is a day of good news, and we remain silent.  If we wait until morning light, some punishment will come upon us…'” (verse 9, 2 Kings 7).  They then went and alerted the inhabitants of Samaria what they had discovered.
I have discovered some great news from the scriptures.  Truths – undeniable and plain – that many, if not most, “preachers” have yet to uncover.  It would be absolutely criminal of me not to share it with others.  “To whom much is given, much is required.”  One sure sign that God has “called” someone, or anointed someone, to speak on His behalf is when God grants that person remarkable understanding of the scriptures, when it becomes clear and plain that someone has been gifted with understanding as well as the ability to teach and to pass on that understanding to others.  Not all such persons are then ordained by God to serve in the capacity of a pastor.  Pastors are not the only spokesmen in the New Covenant body of Christ.  That is but one office and a limited one at that.  Most preachers are woefully ignorant of the various offices and functions in the true body of Christ, the church.  They need to read the 12th chapter of Romans, the 12th chapter of I Corinthians, and the 4th chapter of Ephesians slowly and carefully.  Not only do they need to read it, they need also to believe it and then to ACT on it.  There are multitudes of pastors, preachers, and the like, who are outside the will of God in what they say and do.  God is NOT in their ministries.  They might be honorable people, good husbands and good providers for their family, good citizens, and what have you, but great numbers of them are in the wrong profession and have chosen the wrong career.  They – and their flocks – would be better served should they become doctors, lawyers, or used car salesmen.
Preachers need to stop telling their congregations that Jesus Christ tried to evade the cross.  (That is exactly what they are teaching when they say that the “cup” Jesus Christ prayed would be removed from Him was the cross.  See my article “The Cup Was Not The Cross”).  They also need to stop portraying Paul as someone who had great difficulty in rooting sin out of his life.  (See my article “Was Paul A Defeated Christian?”).  Further, they need to stop saying, “I don’t get my doctrine out of the Old Testament!”  (See 2 Timothy 3:16; Matthew 4:4; Romans 15:4; I Corinthians 1:11, etc.).  Those are three great errors many hold and pass on to others.  There are several other lies of Satan they have bought into and have embraced as God’s truth.  The Bible warns again and again to beware of false prophets (preachers), false brethren and another Jesus and another gospel.  Satan presents his clever counterfeits and the world goes after them.  A deceived preacher doesn’t know he is deceived.  He believes he is right and will someday hear Christ say to him, “Well done, thou good and faithful servant.”  Christians who do not know the scriptures intimately well are easily ensnared by the false way and lies of Satan.  A preacher who preaches error can be, and often is, a tremendously able and convincing speaker.  He may well pastor a huge congregation and televise his services around the world.  None of that is criteria for the authentication of his ministry.  Through His prophet Isaiah, God warned long ago, “To the law and to the testimony, if they speak not according to this Word, it is because there is no light in them” (See Isaiah 8:20).  Friend, you had better get to know the Word of God intimately well – ALL of it – and then test the spirits, weigh what you are hearing or reading by God’s Word.  Failing to follow this course, it is a foregone conclusion you will indeed embrace profound error.  Your search must also be coupled with continued obedience to God’s Word or once again error will creep in.  God help you to understand.

In Defense of the Truth

What would you do if someone very close to you, very dear to you had been accused of a terrible, horrible crime – a crime you knew they definitely did not commit?  My article “The Cup Was Not The Cross” was written to clear Jesus Christ of such a crime, to defend His name and honor.  It is the one article I send to more pastors than any other article I have ever written, because so many pastors have been duped by Satan into believing that Jesus Christ attempted to evade the cross, praying to the Father, “Remove this cup (the cross) from me.”  That is the most ludicrous belief any pastor or Christian can ever begin to entertain in his, or her, mind.  To say Jesus Christ tried to evade the cross is as insane as saying Satan tried his best to redeem mankind and obtain our forgiveness!  But this insane teaching has been believed by so many pastors, preachers, Bible teachers, theologians, etc. for so long, taught so fervently by so many that almost everyone, it seems, believes that the “cup” Jesus Christ did not want to drink was the humiliation and agonies of the cross.  And that is a devil’s LIE!

If you have not read this article (The Cup Was Not The Cross), I urge you to do so now, looking up each and every scripture cited.  I will continue to clean toilets until the last day I draw breath if in doing so I can generate a few dollars to pay the cost of postage, envelopes, copy paper and ink cartridges in order to get this article into the hands of as many pastors as possible throughout the United States.  I will stay up after midnight and arise long before sunrise if that is what it takes to continue this tiny ministry the Lord has given me.  “To whom much is given, much is required.”  HE said that.  He has given me spiritual understanding in this matter of the cross and Jesus’ divine mission, moreso it seems than has been given to most “preachers.”  They need to stop portraying Jesus Christ as a reluctant redeemer, one who desperately tried to evade giving His life to redeem mankind from Satan’s grasp.  And the Father has let me know how greatly He appreciates my efforts to defend the good name and character of His beloved Son – that is the main reason I am healed of each and every disease and illness that afflicts me in short order once I cry out to the Lord to be healed.

All these “reverends” need to wake up and read their own Bibles, believing what is written therein instead of merely parroting what they have been spoon-fed by their religious instructors.  And, on that note, I will end this discourse.

Our Days Are Numbered

In the 17th chapter of the Book of Acts there is recorded for our learning a visit the apostle Paul made to Athens, Greece.  Standing on Mars Hill in that city Paul said, “Ye men of Athens……God made the world and all things therein…..He gives to all life, and breath, and all things, and has made of one blood (bloodline) all nations of men (we can ALL trace our ancestry back to Adam and Eve) for to dwell on the face of the earth and has determined the times before appointed and the bounds of their habitation…” (See Acts 17, verses 22 thru 26).
God determined beforehand the exact time in human history when colonists in America would sever their relationship with the crown in England and declare this to be an independent sovereign nation.  He, likewise, predetermined the boundaries of this great nation, that it would stretch from the Atlantic Ocean to the Pacific Ocean, and to the 49th parallel bordering Canada, and that our southern border would be with Mexico and the Gulf of Mexico.  He has also determined when this nation shall fall and no longer be a sovereign power on earth!!!!
The Babylonian Empire endured for 67 years (606-539 B.C.)  The Medo-Persian Empire endured for 208 years (539-331 B.C.)  The Greek Empire lasted for 185 years (331-146 B.C.), and the Roman Empire ruled for an incredible 622 years (146 B.C. to 476 A.D.)  This nation, America, has now endured for 240 years!  It, too, like the ancient empires cited above, will someday fall.  Just as the sands in the hourglass of our life are falling swiftly through the tiny aperture, so, too, the sands are falling swiftly through the aperture of the “hourglass” that depicts America’s life as a sovereign nation.  Our days truly are numbered.  Is our end to come in our lifetime, or that of the next generation, or a generation more distant still?  Know this: That end will surely come.  We, whose true citizenship is in heaven, need not be overly concerned with such matters.  We are but pilgrims here. sojourners enroute to the eternal kingdom of God.  So, take heart, for we seek a city whose builder and maker is God.  Our hope is in the future, not the present or the past.

Election and Predestination

John Calvin, the founder of the Presbyterian Church, taught that God pre-ordained certain humans to be saved, leaving all others to live and die cut off from Him and, hence, forever lost.  He taught that those pre-ordained to be saved would eventually come to Christ and remain submitted to Christ and His teachings throughout their entire lives.  This was his teaching on election (elected by God to be saved) and predestination (predestined by God to be saved).  Both he, and the church he founded, are in gross error regarding this subject.
Election and predestination has nothing to do with whether one will be saved or lost, whether they will go to heaven or hell.  Election and predestination concerns WHEN one will have their minds opened to divine truth, whether this will occur in this lifetime or in the world to come.  Looking down through the corridor of time God saw the members of the human family who would live at a time and in a place that would be conducive to having their minds opened to divine truth and His reality.  He then pre-ordained certain members of the human family, so living at a time and in a place conducive to their responding to His overtures, to hear the gospel and understand the mission of Jesus Christ.  Still, in His great mercy, He declared that “whosoever will may come” to Christ and be saved.  The elect, those elected and predestinated from the very beginning of time, will definitely come to Christ.  All the rest of the human family will yet be given a full, free, expansive summons to join the great universe-ruling family of God after Christ returns to earth and sets up His eternal kingdom.  They will be resurrected from the dead to mortal, physical existence and granted a lengthy lifespan with Satan bound and unable to deceive them any longer and then they, too, will be summoned to join the family of God.
This is the teaching of the Hebrew prophets and Christ’s apostles.  I have begun a lengthy article on this subject that will be printed out and sent to those whom the Lord leads me to send the same.  It will thoroughly explain how NONE born human will ever have just cause to stand before God and honestly declare, “I never had a chance at being saved and granted eternal life.  I never heard the gospel or any divine truth.”  No Aztec or Inca indian will be able to raise that argument.  No Egyptian slave, no Chinese peasant who lived a thousand years before Jesus’ birth – NO ONE!  This article will explain in full the goodness and mercy and love of God toward the human family – yes, toward each and every one of us without exception.

Numbering The Stars!

How on earth can I go to sleep when the Spirit of the Mighty God continues to enlighten my eyes to so much.  Reading about Abraham again and how God  “brought him forth abroad, and said, ‘Look now toward heaven, and tell the stars, if thou be able to number them.’  And He said unto him, ‘So shall thy seed (descendants) be (numberless, of such great number no mathematician could number them).'” (See Genesis 15:5).

Ptolemy, an ancient astronomer in Alexandria, Egypt, who lived in the Second Century A.D. counted 1022 stars.  He must have had better eyesight than Hipparchus, a Greek astronomer who lived nearly two centuries before Jesus Christ came to earth, as Hipparchus had only counted 850.  It’s a pity they didn’t have access to God’s Word, or, if they did, failed to believe it, because God had previously indicated that the stars were numberless, just too many to count.  Plus, the heavens wrap totally around this globe we live on, so, in counting the stars visible at any given point one must realize that there is a vast expanse of sky one never sees!  Even astronomers, at least ancient ones, were not really deep thinkers.  If I stand at the North Pole and look up, I am not seeing the same sky someone sees if viewing the heavens from the vantage point of the South Pole.  And even though the earth is revolving, it would have to twist and turn and revolve in every possible direction for me to see the whole of the heavens.  Even then I am only seeing a tiny portion thereof as it extends outward trillions of light years with stars and galaxies of stars everywhere.

So, are there really “few” that eventually are saved.  God said Abraham’s spiritual descendants (see Romans 4 and Galatians 3) would outnumber the stars AS WELL AS THE DUST OF THE EARTH (see Genesis 13:16).  When all is said and done, when God’s great work of bringing many sons to glory reaches its conclusion, Satan will have lost big time.  The number of the redeemed of the Lord will be countless – billions and billions, if not trillions and trillions.  The saving of mankind does not end with our Lord’s return.  That’s actually when it begins.  Right now God is merely building a cadre, as it were, of servants and sons who will assist our Father in expanding His family so greatly it will fill the universe.  God help you to see and understand.  Now maybe I will go to bed for awhile….maybe…..



While America Sleeps

On May 26, 1908, a Tuesday, an event occurred in Persia (modern-day Iran) that would change world history.  Oil was discovered.  George Reynolds, an Englishman, had been searching for oil in that region for seven years without success.  His backers in London informed him that they would financially back him for but one more well.  That well was to be drilled for no more than 1600 feet.  If no oil was discovered when that point was reached, there would be no more financial backing for him.  He would have to throw in the towel and return to England.  At 4:00 in the morning the well reached 1,180 feet below the surface of the desert and suddenly a geyser of crude oil shot 75 feet in the air, and world history was changed at that moment.

There is Power in The Word

Several decades ago archaeologists, while excavating around the ancient fortress of Masada in Israel, discovered a clay pot containing date seeds.  Until 2005 those seeds sat in a drawer in a scientist’s lab untouched.  In 2005 an agricultural scientist wondered if these 2000 year old date palm seeds were still viable.  She planted them in a small pot.  They grew.  Today one of those plants is a date palm standing ten feet tall and is called the Methusaleh date palm.

Sir Issac Newton’s Toy

Isaac Newton, discoverer of gravity, had a skilled mechanic make for him
a model of the solar system.  Balls representing the planets were geared together so as to move realistically in orbit.  One day an atheist friend visited Newton.  On seeing the model, he operated it, and exclaimed in admiration, “Who made it?”  Newton answered, “Nobody!”  The atheist replied, “You must think I am a fool.  Of course somebody made it, and he is a genius.”  Then Newton said to his friend, “This thing is but a puny imitation of a much grander system whose laws you know.  And I am not able to convince you that this mere toy is without a designer and maker, yet you profess to believe that the great original from which the design is taken has come into being without either designer or maker!”
