Over 15,000 DECISIONS FOR CHRIST

We are praying all these decisions for Christ will become disciples of Christ!

How long can a man or woman SURVIVE  in PRISON

without hope, and without a friend?


Let’s face the facts . . .

Prisons are colleges for crime!

  • FACT: There are over 2 million prisoners currently attending these schools!
  • FACT: Criminal skills are taught to willing students by seasoned cons
  • FACT: 95% of all “students” will eventually “graduate” to walk the streets of America
    better trained with improved skills
  • FACT: Prisoners that are abandoned by their family and friends seek companionship within the seedy prison elements that by default are prepared to totally radicalize them!

Consider this

  • American penitentiaries are breeding grounds for concentrated forces of evil
  • 85%- or more- of America’s prisoners– have no relationship with Jesus           Christ
  • Increasing numbers of prison administrations are opposing Christian ministries while becoming favorable toward Islam
  • Biblically ignorant prisoners are being recruited by gangs, cultists, and Islamists- at alarming rates!
  • Chaplains that should be preaching and teaching the Word of God are forsaking Christ to become ecumenical religious facilitators
  • Sodomy is occurring more frequently amongst professing Christian prisoners
  • Prison rehabilitation is a $60 BILLION dollar scam! Of the 95% of PRISONERS that will one day be released, 75% will be back in prison within 48 months! (read more)

Government or God?

Through the years it has become painfully evident: Government programs costing billions of dollars haven’t worked. God’s program does work because it is Bible based. We know from over 30 years of contending for the faith (Jude 1:3) that if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new (2 Corinthians 5:17). That’s why the PMI Center chose in 1981 to provide life-changing TUITION-FREE distance Bible college level studies to prisoners in eight proven study program tracks (see Courses above menu) : Apologetics (2 years Biblical – Creationism), Biblical Studies (6 years), Nouthetic Counseling (2 years), Pastoral and Evangelism Ministry (2 years), Prophecy (Jack Van Impe- 2 years), Religious Ed (1 year ), Scofield Bible (2 years), and Theology (1 year PhD option from Calvary Christian Seminary).  All are soundly fundamental in doctrine (we use the Authorized King James Bible), practical in structure, and underwritten exclusively by the generous freewill offerings of those who believe in what we’re doing and support us. We’re proud to say that many of our 26,000 students have received their diplomas from PMI and degrees from our co-op colleges and have gone on to become devoted evangelists, pastors, teachers, counselors, church ministry workers, and all-around exemplary Christians.

Recommendations from students:

I thank God daily for you and the truths that you teach. I will take them into the ministry with me and teach them to the church of God without apology and without compromise. I cannot express how grateful I am for this opportunity that God has given me to learn and grow in my faith and in God’s Word through PMI under your leadership. May God bless you always. Curtis Fairchild (South Bay, FL).

Brothers and sisters, PMI teaches God’s Word verbatim, the studies have enlightened me, uplifted me, encouraged me, edified me, qualified me, and called me to a higher calling in Christ Jesus. Waiting for the trumpet blast. Steven Collins, 2 Tim 1:7-8 (Springfield, TN).

Thank you from the bottom of my heart. My goal when I get out of here is to work with prison ministry. I have seen first hand now how much of a presence Satan has in a prison. Learning has never been so interesting. Your lessons have given me a new look at things I have read many times before. James George (Ayer, MA)

Recommendations from well known friends:

LUTHER RICE COLLEGE AND SEMINARY: After a thorough review of our courses, we received the following response from the President of Luther Rice College & Seminary, the undisputed pioneer in distance education:

Dear. Dr. Johnston, Thank you for the follow-up letter of October 3. I did, indeed, receive the materials you sent and found them quite impressive. Of all the ministries that I have written, yours comes closest to what I was hoping to find.

When I am advised of students who are looking for high quality theological education but are unable to meet the financial requirements of Luther Rice Seminary, I will certainly recommend Promise Ministries.

Again, thank you for your concern and for the good work that you are doing.

In Him, J.M. Kinnebrew, Th.D.
Luther Rice Seminary

The Church by Clarence Larkin

December 7, 2018 Leave a comment

Clarence Larkin

DISCLAIMER: Larkin does not hold to the Mid Acts Dispensational position of PMI. Some editing in [brackets].

[God is overseeing two overarching programs for reconciling both earth and heaven to Himself. The prophecy program features Israel and a coming earthly kingdom having been spoken by the mouth of the prophets since the world began (Luke 1:70; Acts 3:21) and the mystery program featuring the body of Christ and our inheritance with Christ in heaven that was hidden until Jesus revealed it to Paul (Rom. 16:25).

“And he is the head of the body, the church: who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead; that in all [things] he might have the preeminence.” (Col 1:18 KJV)]

  1. [The church] is not a continuation of the “Jewish Dispensation” under another name.

As we have seen in the chapter on the Jews, the Jews have been shunted to a sidetrack that the “Main Line” may be clear for the passage of the Church. Jesus said-“The Law and the Prophets are until John.” If the Scriptures put Moses and Law in one Dispensation and Christ and Grace in another let us respect the Divine order and not join together what God has put asunder.

  • It is not “The Kingdom”

John the Baptist came preaching that the “Kingdom of Heaven” was “at hand” and Jesus sent out the Twelve and the Seventy to do the same, but the Jewish people rejected their King, and the setting up of the Kingdom was postponed. There cannot be any Kingdom until the “Nobleman Farmer” who has gone into a “far country” to receive the Kingdom returns. Luke 19:11-13

  • It is a “Mystery”

The Kingdom was no mystery. The Old Testament prophets describe it in glowing terms. But there was something that was a Mystery” to them, and that was what was to come in between the “Sufferings and Glory” of Christ. 1Pet. 1:9-11.

That is, between the Cross and the Crown. Jesus intimated that there was to be something that He called the “Church, ” but He did not say when it should appear, or what it would be like. Matt. 16:13-15.

The “Mystery of the Church” was first revealed to Paul.

“For this cause I, Paul, the prisoner of Jesus Christ for you Gentiles, if ye have heard of ‘The Dispensation of the Grace of God’ which is given me to you-ward; how that by revelation He made known unto me ‘THE MYSTERY’ which in other ages was not made known unto the sons of men, as it is now revealed unto His holy apostles and prophets by the Spirit; that THE GENTILES should be fellow heirs and of THE SAME BODY, and partakers of His promise in Christ by the Gospel….. according to the ‘Eternal Purpose’ which He purposes in Christ Jesus our Lord.” Eph. 3:1-3

  • It is a “Called Out” Body [Assembly]

The word Church comes from the Greek word “ecclesia” which means “Assembly” or a congregation of “called out ones.”

But the word is not used exclusively as to the Church. Israel was an “ecclesia” or an Assembly of people “called out” from other peoples and nations, and is called in Acts 7:38, “The Church in the Wilderness.”

Any Assembly of worshipers banded together as a church or congregation is an “ecclesia.” Matt. 18:17; 1Cor. 14:19, 1Cor. 14:35.

While Israel is a “called out body” it is a “National Body,” composed exclusively of the descendants of Abraham, but the Church is not a “National Body” for it is [a heavenly body] not composed of the people of any one nation, but of individuals from every kindred, people, tribe and nation.

That Israel and the Church are distinct and separate and cannot be blended, is clear from the fact that their “election” was made at different dates, and that the “election” of the Church antedates the “election” of Israel, for Israel was chosen in Abraham from the foundation of the world (Matt. 25:34), while the Church was chosen in HIM (Jesus) BEFORE the Foundation of the World. Eph. 1:4-6

  • It is the “Body of Christ”

In Eph. 1:22, 23 we read-

“And hath put all things under His feet, and gave HIM (Jesus), to be the HEAD over all things to the Church which is His BODY.”

The context shows (vs. 20), that this “Headship” was not possible until Jesus had been raised from the dead, and seated at the right hand of the Father. The Church, therefore, could not have been in existence before there was a Head, for God does not make headless things. The Church then is the Body of which Christ is the Head.

In 1Cor. 12:12, 13 we are told how this “Body” is formed.

“For as the body is one, and hath many members; and all the members of that one body, being many, are one body; so also is Christ. For by one Spirit are we all baptized into One Body, whether we be Jew or Gentile, whether we be bond or free; and have been all made to drink into ONE SPIRIT.”

From this we see that it is the “Baptism of the Spirit” that incorporates us into the “BODY OF CHRIST.”

Therefore there could be no Church until the “Day of Pentecost.” Acts 1:4-5; Acts 2:1-3

  • It is to be the “Bride of Christ”

At present the Church is a virgin espoused. Paul said to the Church at Corinth, “I am jealous over you with godly jealousy; for I have espoused you to one husband, that I may present you as a chaste VIRGIN to Christ.” 2Cor. 11:2.

In Christ’s day an espousal was as sacred as a marriage. The First Adam had his Bride, and the Second or Last Adam must have His Bride. In Gen. 2:18, Gen. 2:21-23, we are told how the First Adam got his Bride.

“The Lord God caused a deep sleep to fall upon Adam and he slept; and He took one of his ribs, and closed up the flesh instead thereof; and with the rib, which the Lord God had taken from man, made (builded) He a woman, and brought her unto the man. And Adam said, This is now bone of my bones and flesh of my flesh; she shall be called woman because she was taken out of man.”

Now Jesus during His life on the earth as a man, abode alone, but a deep sleep-the sleep of death-fell on Him, and out of His wounded side, as the result of the Atonement He made on the Cross, there came that from which the Church was formed, and to which the Holy Spirit gave life on the Day of Pentecost; so that, as Adam said of Eve-“This is now bone of my bones, and flesh of my flesh, ” so we can say of the Church-“We are members of His Body, of his Flesh, and of his Bones.” Eph. 5:29-31 [1]

What’s Dispensational Bible Study?

November 4, 2018 1 comment

BEHOLD THE CONFUSION: RELIGIOUS TRADITION

Have you ever wondered why there is so much confusion and debate among and within “Christian” circles and churches? These professing Christians all quote the Bible, they all claim to believe the Bible, and yet, it is quite a surprise to learn that they all disagree regarding what the Bible actually teaches! All 38,000-plus denominations in Christendom claim to be serving and following “Jesus Christ,” and yet, they all believe mutually exclusive doctrines and practice opposing rites and rituals. How can they all be following Jesus Christ while all doing different things?! The Church the Body of Christ is supposed to be united; nevertheless, schisms, strife, and contradictions abound. Why?

Let me give you some of the most popular examples of the literally thousands of major arguments in Christendom:

Many churches believe that faith and works are necessary for salvation, quoting Matthew 19:17 and James 2:24; the remainder of churches believe that salvation is by faith alone, using Romans 3:28, Romans 4:5, and Ephesians 2:8,9.

Some groups believe that water baptism is necessary for salvation, relying on Mark 16:16 and 1 Peter 3:21; others hold that it is merely a testimony of salvation, citing Matthew 28:19 and Acts 2:38; still others do not water baptize at all, relying on 1 Corinthians 1:17, 1 Corinthians 12:13, and Ephesians 4:5.

Some churches participate in “snake handling,” “devil exorcism,” “tongue talking” and “healing services,” citing Mark 16:17,18 and James 5:15; others completely reject those practices, quoting Romans 8:18, 1 Timothy 5:23, and 2 Timothy 4:20.

Some churches argue that we must observe the Saturday Sabbath, citing Exodus 20:8-11, while others believe there is no Sabbath day to keep today, quoting Romans 6:14 and Colossians 2:16. (There are even groups that argue that we must observe Sunday, the alleged “Christian Sabbath!”)

Some groups teach that Christians can lose their salvation, following Psalm 51:11, Matthew 24:13, and Hebrews 6:4-6; other groups believe Christians are eternally secure in Christ, relying on Romans 8:35-39, Ephesians 4:30, and 2 Timothy 1:12.

Some churches teach tithing, according to Malachi 3:8-11, while other churches believe that we are not under an obligatory giving system, citing Romans 6:14 and 2 Corinthians 9:7.

Some argue that we should confess our sins to God daily, quoting Matthew 6:12,14,15 and 1 John 1:9. Other groups believe that we should confess our sins to priests, using John 20:23 and James 5:16. Still, others believe that confession of sins is unnecessary because Jesus Christ died to pay for our sins and we are already forgiven of all of our sins, citing Ephesians 4:32 and Colossians 2:13.

Some groups say we are bound to keep the Mosaic Law, using Exodus 20:1-17 and 1 John 2:3,4, while others say we are under grace, not law, citing Romans 6:14 and Galatians 5:1-5.

Amazing huh? All of these groups are using Bible verses to support these opposing views!! How is this possible?! If the Bible has all of these conflicting views, then exactly what does God expect us to believe?! What is the solution to this abounding confusion and these so-called Bible “contradictions?” Firstly, understand that “God is not the author of confusion” (1 Corinthians 14:33). The problem is not God’s Word; God’s Word is infallible, perfect, and completely sound. Sinful mankind and Satan, not God, are to blame for the gross theological errors and false teaching in Christendom. Never, ever blame God for the confusion that Satan and mankind generate using religious tradition and human “wisdom.”

If people would simply use the Bible God’s way, all of the doctrinal confusion in Christian circles would disappear. Alas, people prefer their religious tradition, so they do not care to submit to God’s Word. The Lord Jesus Christ rebuked the religious leaders of His day: “Full well ye reject the commandment of God, that ye may keep your own tradition“ (Mark 7:9 KJV). These people approach God’s Word with denominational biases and reach denominational conclusions, instead of seeing what the Bible actually said and to whom it said it. What makes it all the more disturbing is that the pastors and teachers who should be dispelling confusion and doubt are only adding to the preexisting confusion by failing to use God’s Word God’s way themselves. These church leaders only teach God’s Word as their denominational system interprets it, instead of letting the Bible’s testimony speak for itself and mean what it says, where it says it, and to whom it says it.

BEHOLD THE SOLUTION: 2 TIMOTHY 2:15

If we use God’s Word, God’s way, there will be no contradictions and no confusion. The Bible will only make sense to you if you approach it the way God designed it to be studied (that is “rightly divided”). Read what the Apostle Paul wrote in 2 Timothy 2:15, as found in the King James Bible:

“Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.”

The only verse in the Bible that tells you to “study” the Bible tells you how to study it. When you “rightly divide the word of truth,” you are recognizing the distinctions/divisions that God has made in His Word. Through various dispensations (sets of directions), God gave different instructions to various groups of people. (For instance, compare the differing diets that God gave in Genesis 1:27-29, Genesis 9:1-4, Leviticus 11:2, and 1 Timothy 4:3-5.) We must be careful to never insert directions into the dispensations in which they were never given. Confusion results when we combine all of the Bible’s instructions as though they were spoken to one group of people. There are several dispensations in Scripture given to different people at various times and we must never confuse them. It is this very failure to rightly divide the word of truth that gives rise to all of the conflicting doctrines (what we discussed in our introductory remarks).

Let us now discuss the basics of “rightly dividing the word of truth.”

THE TWO PROGRAMS IN GOD’S WORD

Genesis 1:1 KJV, the first verse in the Bible, reads: “In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.” God divides the heaven from the earth. (This is true even at the end of the Bible, in Revelation 21:1.) Furthermore, God has designed one program to operate in each of these realms. There are two programs in the Bible: the “prophetic program” and the “mystery program.”

The Apostle Peter says in Acts 3:21 KJV that he is preaching that “which God hath spoken by the mouth of all his holy prophets since the world began.”

The Apostle Paul writes in Romans 16:25,26a KJV that he is preaching “according to the revelation of the mystery, which was kept secret since the world began, but now is made manifest….”

Obviously, if words mean anything, Peter and Paul are speaking of two different things. Something “spoken since the world began” cannot be the same as something “kept secret since the world began.”

The prophetic program focuses on the nation Israel and an earthly kingdom (Exodus 19:5,6; Deuteronomy 4:20), where Gentiles (non-Jews) receive salvation through that kingdom (Isaiah 60:1-3). On the other hand, the mystery program focuses on the Church the Body of Christ and a heavenly kingdom (Ephesians 2:6,7; Ephesians 1:22-23), where Gentiles receive salvation without Israel’s kingdom (Romans 11:11,12,25). Surely, if we are to avoid confusion, we must keep those two programs and their respective directions separated (“rightly divided”).

Sadly, most of Christendom combines all of these Bible verses into one program, ignoring the differences between the program that involves Israel’s kingdom and the mystery program that does not involve Israel’s kingdom. Again, this haphazard handling of the Bible is the source of the spiritual confusion and the alleged Bible “contradictions.” They are mixing opposing directions God gave in different dispensations (these directions were not given in the same dispensation).

Today, the Apostle Paul writes that the prophetic program that was operating in the “Old Testament,” the Four Gospels, and the early Acts period is temporarily suspended. We are currently living in the “Dispensation of the Grace of God” (Ephesians 3:2), the mystery program, which the Lord kept secret in the Old Testament but has since revealed it to mankind through the ministry of the Apostle Paul (Romans 16:25,26; Ephesians 3:1-11). Why did God hide it prior to Paul? It was to keep the devil from knowing His entire plan, so Satan could crucify Jesus Christ, and thereby would actually defeat himself  (1 Corinthians 2:6-8)!

WHOM SHOULD WE FOLLOW TODAY?

It is often mistakenly assumed that we need to “follow Jesus” (that is, the red letters of the Four Gospels). Yet, when we consider the Scriptures, this makes no sense whatsoever. Can we sinners follow the sinless Lord Jesus Christ? OF COURSE NOT!

Romans 11:13 KJV says that Paul is “the apostle of the Gentiles.” As previously stated, the ascended Lord Jesus Christ revealed to Paul alone “the revelation of the mystery” (Romans 16:25,26), His secret (mystery) program to deal with the whole world (Jews and Gentiles) on the basis of grace and Christ’s finished crosswork on Calvary. On the other hand, the Lord Jesus Christ ministered to Jews only in Matthew through John (Matthew 10:5-7; Matthew 15:24; John 4:22; Romans 15:8). Jesus had no ministry to us Gentiles because He had to save Israel first! It is not until we come to Paul’s ministry when God begins to deal with Gentiles. This is one basic fact of Scripture that most church members have never been told.

Jesus Christ urged His followers to obey the Mosaic Law, and commanded them to teach others to do the same (Matthew 5:17-19). Contrariwise, God through Paul tells us, “ye are not under the law, but under grace” (Romans 6:14,15). Obviously, we cannot follow both of these instructions. We cannot follow Jesus’ earthly ministry because we are not Jews. Furthermore, “Wherefore henceforth know we no man after the flesh: yea though we have known Christ after the flesh, yet now henceforth know we him no more” (2 Corinthians 5:16). We do not know Jesus Christ after His earthly ministry (Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John). Rather, we follow Him according to His heavenly ministry (as He is revealed in Paul’s epistles, Romans through Philemon).

God set forth Paul to be our “pattern” as to how we receive salvation (1 Timothy 1:15,16). In addition, Paul writes, “Be ye followers of me, even as I am of Christ” (1 Corinthians 11:1). In the Christian life, we follow Paul as he follows Christ. In Paul’s epistles alone we find the doctrine, duty, walk, and destiny of the Church the Body of Christ. Paul is God’s spokesman to you, just as Moses was God’s spokesman to Israel. If you want to learn what God has to say to you today, you must go to Paul’s epistles, Romans through Philemon. To reject Paul is to reject Christ who sent Paul to you, and to reject Christ is to reject God the Father (Matthew 10:40; John 13:20). Paul wrote: “If any man think himself to be a prophet, or spiritual, let him acknowledge that the things that I write unto you are the commandments of the Lord” (1 Corinthians 14:37). The test for spirituality today is NOT following Jesus in His earthly ministry, but obeying what God the Holy Spirit says today through the Apostle Paul.

YOUR CHRISTIAN LIFE AS A MEMBER OF THE CHURCH THE BODY OF CHRIST

We are not the nation Israel, for in our dispensation, Israel is temporarily “fallen,” “cast away,” and “spiritually blinded” (Romans 11:11,15,25). We Christians are members of the Church the Body of Christ, where there is neither Jew nor Gentile (Galatians 3:26-28; Ephesians 1:22,23). What God has to say to us is different from what He told the nation Israel in the “Old Testament,” the Four Gospels, and the early part of Acts. It is important to understand how your Christian life operates as a non-Israelite, as a Gentile living in the Dispensation of the Grace of God and a member of the Church the Body of Christ. If you want to be spiritually “edified” (“strengthened”) and spiritually “perfected” (“matured”), you need to study and believe the Pauline epistles of Romans through Philemon (Ephesians 4:12).

God wants to “stablish” (stabilize) your Christian life and inner man by using a three-fold process. God wants you to understand the life that He has given to you in Christ Jesus, so that you can better understand what He is doing today, and then you can, by faith, follow Him and do the same. This is how we discover and do God’s will for our lives. The Bible says in Romans 16:25,26 KJV:

“25 Now to him that is of power to stablish you according to my gospel, and the preaching of Jesus Christ, according to the revelation of the mystery, which was kept secret since the world began,

26 But now is made manifest, and by the scriptures of the prophets, according to the commandment of the everlasting God, made known to all nations for the obedience of faith:”

Notice the three-fold process of Christian edification:

“my gospel“—Paul’s Gospel, 1 Corinthians 15:1-4, is the foundation of the Christian life

“the preaching of Jesus Christ, according to the revelation of the mystery“—this is Paul’s epistles of Romans through Philemon, the sound doctrine (building materials) which we use to build on that foundation

“the scriptures of the prophets“—this is all of the Holy Scriptures, in light of the doctrine revealed to Paul.

This is why studying the Bible rightly divided is so important. We study all of the Bible, Genesis through Revelation, but we follow the design of Christian edification as laid out in Romans 16:25,26. If we refuse to follow the dispensational layout of Scripture, and most people do refuse it, then we will be going against what God is doing today, and our Christian lives will be in shambles (which is why Christendom is in such pitiful shape!).

DO WE ONLY STUDY PAUL’S EPISTLES? (NO!)

“All scripture is given by inspiration of God” (2 Timothy 3:16). All of the Bible is God’s Word, so we study all 66 books of the King James Bible (Genesis to Revelation). But, unlike most churches and professing Christians, we study the entire Bible according to the “revelation of the mystery,” (in light of the Pauline epistles, Romans through Philemon). All of the Bible is for us, but not all of the Bible is to us and not all of the Bible is about us (remember, most of the Bible is written to and is about the nation Israel, not us). We follow God’s design for Christian edification, and we seek God’s approval, not man’s approval (2 Timothy 2:15).

When studying a particular Bible passage, you first need to establish the following, in this order:

  1. who is writing/speaking,
  1. to whom are they writing, and
  1. what are they writing.

Again, keep in mind that Paul’s epistles of Romans through Philemon are what God has to say to you, and the rest of the Bible deals with another program, Israel’s program.
 If Paul does not instruct you to do it, then God does not expect you to practice it in your life.

WHY HAVE I NOT HEARD THIS BEFORE?

Are you shocked by what you have just read? Does the Bible make more sense now? So, why have you never heard this before? I would strongly suggest that you ask your pastor, Bible teacher, or priest why he never told you any of this. You might be surprised at his answer! [1]

Bible Brief from Right Division

November 2, 2018 Leave a comment

Dr. Mike Johnston

“Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth” (2Ti 2:15 KJV). This Bible Brief provides an overview of the Scriptures, rightly divided.

When “God created the heaven and the earth” (Gen. 1:1), He also established two programs with ordinances to govern them (Jer. 33:25).[1] These programs operate separately, never simultaneously.

God’s prophecy program was well known. It features Israel as God’s elect nation on earth through the seed of Abraham involving a covenant with him concerning a coming Jewish King and kingdom (2 Sam. 7:13-16) the Lord progressively unfolded through “the mouth of all his holy prophets since the world began.” (Acts 3:21; see Luke 1:70). [2]

Conversely, His mystery program was unknown until the Lord Jesus revealed it to Paul (Gal. 1:11-12). It features the church as the Body of Christ and it focuses on heaven and our inheritance there with Christ “kept secret since the world began” (Rom. 16:25).

Immediately following creation, God’s focus is on the establishment of an earthly Kingdom. God’s spoken word to Adam placed him in a beautiful Garden of bountiful blessing (Gen. 2). However, this didn’t set well with Satan who lusted for power (Isa. 14:12-14). Therefore, knowing Adam had the word of God to guide him, his only recourse was to retranslate the Word [3] hoping to cause some confusion and rebellion. It worked. Eve was deceived leading to Adam’s sin of eating from the only tree God had forbidden (Gen. 2:15-17; 3:1-7). Man fell, and Satan claimed a temporary victory as “god of this world” (2 Cor. 4:4).

On the heels of the fall, Adam and Eve were banished from the Garden. However, Kingdom plans were not lost. Foreknowing man’s disobedience, the Lord had formulated redemption’s plan (Rev. 13:8) which involved Himself as Redeemer of man and Ruler of the Kingdom man forfeited (Gen 3:15-21; see Isa. 7:14; 9:16-17). Over time, God sent inspired messengers called prophets (Luke 1:70; Acts 3:21) to systematically reveal His plans through five Covenants made with Israel unilaterally. These Covenants – all building upon the initial Abrahamic Covenant – were paramount in guiding her, guarding her, and governing her [4] from the calling of Abraham on through the Davidic Kingdom (Gen. 12; Matt. 25:34; Rev. 21-22). The 5 Covenants are:

  1. The Abrahamic Covenant (Gen. 15:18): God promised Abraham’s family would become a nation, in a promised land.[5]
  2. The Mosaic Covenant (Ex. 19:25): God constituted the 12 tribes into the nation of Israel giving her Laws and leaders to govern her.
  3. The Land Covenant (Deut. 30:3): God promised Canaan to all of Israel in perpetuity for the Kingdom.
  4. The Davidic Covenant (2 Sam. 7:16): God promised a royal seed from the tribe of Judah in the bloodline of David to rule over the earthly Kingdom.
  5. The New Covenant (Jer. 31:31; see Matt. 26:28; Heb. 8:8): God provided a way for Israel to be permanently reconciled to God in the land, under the Messiah, during the earthly Kingdom located in Jerusalem where His Law would be written upon her heart. [6]

These 5 Covenants form a contiguous prophetic conglomerate featuring Abraham’s Covenant family, under Covenant Law, in Covenant Land, seeking the Covenant King and Kingdom (Heb. 11:8-10). However, although it was well known in an historical sense, it’s date certain was unknown until Daniel codified it into a final 490-year prophetic calendar of seventy-weeks of seven years (Dan. 9:24-27) with two vital stipulations: (1) it MUST be fulfilled by “thy people” (Israel), and (2) it MUST involve “thy holy city” (Jerusalem) (Dan. 9:24-27).

Two-thousand years ago precisely as Daniel had predicted (Dan. 9:24-27; see Matt. 26:56; see Acts 3:18-26) the incarnate God, our Lord Jesus, appeared on earth (Isa. 7:14; Matt. 1:23) in response to the prophets to inaugurate the Davidic Covenant Kingdom (Luke 1). In that capacity, He preached “repent for the Kingdom of Heaven is at hand” (Matt. 4:17) to “the lost sheep of the house of Israel” (Matt. 15:24). However, Daniel’s prophecy contained a slight hiatus that was fulfilled when Messiah was “cut off” (Dan. 9:26) and crucified, in accord with a veiled prophecy of redemption given to Adam in Genesis 3:15 and pictured in Isaiah 53.

Research experts such as former head of Scotland Yard Sir Robert Anderson have calculated Christ’s rejection by Israel occurred precisely at Daniel’s 70th week leaving one future seven-year period (week) to be fulfilled by Israel before the Jewish Kingdom can begin. Scholars tell us this week begins when “the prince that shall come” – “that Wicked” (2 Thess. 2:3-12) aka the Antichrist (1 John 2:18) – in some manner brokers a seven-year covenant for Israel in the Middle East (Dan. 9:26-27).

Then will begin a kingdom preparatory judgment on Israel that Moses called “tribulation” (Deut. 4:30), the prophets call “the time of [Jacob’s] trouble” (Jer. 30:7; see Dan. 12:1; Zeph. 1:15), and John the Baptist referred to as “the wrath to come” (Matt. 3:7). All and all, it is the day of Lord (Joel 2) named first by Joel, that was so firmly established for Israel’s future, the other prophets confirming Joel simply had to call it “that day” (Isaiah, Jeremiah, Ezekiel, Hosea). Zechariah is very clear about this period: “That day [is] a day of wrath, a day of trouble and distress, a day of wasteness and desolation, a day of darkness and gloominess, a day of clouds and thick darkness,” (Zep 1:15 KJV) (see also Amos 5:18, 20; Isa. 13:9-11 [7]).

Jesus explained this time of wrath epoch in one of the final messages to His Jewish disciples. It’s called the Olivet Discourse (Matt. 24-25; Mark 13; Luke 21), and it came in response to urgent pleas from Peter, [8] James, John, and Andrew (Mark 13:3) – faithful followers all standing firm on the Covenant promises for Israel’s Kingdom – begging Him to tell them when He would return to inaugurate it (Matt. 24:3; see Acts 1:6). During this briefing, the Lord revealed a series of disastrous signs – more fully revealed by John the Revelator almost 60 years later (Rev. 6-19) – preceding it: First, He linked His message to the Jewish prophet Daniel by referring to the “abomination of desolation” which occurs midway in the Tribulation (Dan. 9:24-27; Matt. 24:15). Second, He twice linked it to Moses’ maiden prophecy which serves as the first mention of a coming Tribulation for Israel (Deut. 4:30-31; Matt. 24:21, 29). Third, He completed His sermon with details of His return to earth immediately following Israel’s Tribulation to establish “the Kingdom prepared (primarily for Covenant Israel) from the foundation of the world” (Matt. 25:34).

From the creation of earth to the Kingdom on earth, this is a Bible Brief you should learn to explain.

[1] “Thus saith the LORD; If my covenant [be] not with day and night, [and if] I have not appointed the ordinances of heaven and earth;” (Jer 33:25 KJV)

[2] Except for Romans-Philemon which focus on the Body of Christ, the entire Bible is to Israel and the nations in contact with her.

[3] Modernists do this today in concerted effort to impugn God’s Word to English speaking people, the King James Bible.

[4] Study carefully the strict stipulations laid out in Leviticus 26 and Deuteronomy 28.

[5] References are from the Old Scofield Reference Bible, available from PMI for a gift of $34. Stamps are welcome.

[6] Notice there is no Pauline or body of Christ Covenant. All 5 of these were given to Israel specifically.

[7] “Behold, the day of the LORD cometh, cruel both with wrath and fierce anger, to lay the land desolate: and he shall destroy the sinners thereof out of it. For the stars of heaven and the constellations thereof shall not give their light: the sun shall be darkened in his going forth, and the moon shall not cause her light to shine. And I will punish the world for [their] evil, and the wicked for their iniquity; and I will cause the arrogancy of the proud to cease, and will lay low the haughtiness of the terrible.” (Isaiah 13:9-11 KJV) “And said to the mountains and rocks, Fall on us, and hide us from the face of him that sitteth on the throne, and from the wrath of the Lamb:” (Revelation 6:16 KJV) “And the angel thrust in his sickle into the earth, and gathered the vine of the earth, and cast [it] into the great winepress of the wrath of God.” (Revelation 14:19 KJV)

[8] Keep in mind Peter’s mission was NOT to the mystery Body of Christ which was yet a mystery. His ministry was to Jews as the apostle to the circumcision (Gal. 2:7-9).

The right and wrong of it

Thursday, November 1, 2018

With all the visceral and the hate stirring the crucible of what has become of America’s melting pot, people seem to forget there is a right and a wrong to all this. John Wayne, delivered an iconic line in the 1960 movie, The Alamo: “There’s right and there’s wrong. You gotta do one or the other.” How true. Many excuse the hate mongering by saying “well, both sides do it.” Perhaps to an extent. There is no moral equivalence, however, if one side does it 620 times and the other side only half a dozen, mostly in defense from the other. We have to realize that there is a rebellion going on, a coup attempt at the highest level. Suspend your disbelief. It is happening. Right and wrong are coming into focus. Where do you stand?

It is not right for elected officials to say things like, “if they bring a knife to the fight, we bring a gun,” or “You know, to just be grossly generalistic, you could put half of Trump’s supporters into what I call the basket of deplorables. Right? The racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic, Islamaphobic-you name it,” or calling conservatives, “”virulent people, some of them the dregs of society,” or “if you see anybody from that Cabinet in a restaurant, in a department store, at a gasoline station, you get out and you create a crowd and you push back on them, and you tell them they’re not welcome anymore, anywhere.” These statements by the immediate past “president,” Hillary Clinton, Joe Biden and Maxine Waters are all very aggressive, depict hate for those who disagree with them, and have stirred unlawful and violent acts.

These kinds of comments have a far different tone than: “The Fake News Media, the true Enemy of the People,” or “Democrats are the problem. They don’t care about crime and want illegal immigrants, no matter how bad they may be, to pour into and infest our Country, like MS-13,” or of Islamic terrorists, “We don’t want them here. We want to ensure that we are not admitting into our country the very threats our soldiers are fighting overseas. We only want to admit those into our country who will support our country, and love deeply our people.” Each of these statements by President Trump have caused hour upon hour of so-called “news commentary” from liberals concluding that Trump and conservatives are racists, bigots, Nazis, and worse. There is no moral equivalency in comparing the statements from the two sides.

These are the statements of just a handful of elected officials. There are countless more by actors, mainstream media reporters and commentators creating an atmosphere of mistrust and contempt. A statement about policy is twisted to mean something it didn’t intend while statements accusing people of being a bigot or urging people to confrontation are heralded as what is right. They publicly tried and convicted a man of sexual offenses, while withholding information that proved his innocence in an admitted attempt to destroy his reputation-all because they believed they were morally right to prevent him from being on the Supreme Court. Isaiah 5:20 says, “Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness.” Yes, there’s right and there’s wrong. You gotta do one or the other. Are you voting?

Have a Blessed and Powerful Day!

The Rebellious world we now live in

October 13, 2018 Leave a comment

An international collusion of corruption

The newsletter is about events that take place in the world that affect us, as a people, and as the church. And there is much to cover, so let me begin with two points that will be the underlying theme of this newsletter.
1. The godless are stirred up
2. Do we recognize evil anymore?
How do we define evil? Evil is void of what is good, but to know what is good one must have some ethical, moral standard to measure it by. That has been erased, now evil can be called good.
There are two influences in the world, and they are clashing. One is truth, one of falsehood, one is moral the other is immoral.
The pervasive attitude is “No one is going to tell me what to do even if it is right, I do what I feel.” That is lawlessness. We have a generation of legalized murderers that want to continually be allowed to do what they want with their bodies, even if it is affecting another body. Once called a baby, something that we all once were to come into this world.
It is openly known how those on the “left” (and some on the right) in our country hate our “current president.” They have has lost power in the government and do not like it. Since the election that have tried every means to regain it and thwart the current administration. What they ignore are the many improvements that have taken place for the citizens of the country.
It’s been said politics is life. Today in America, people’s lives are wrapped up in politics. So we begin with the political drama in this newsletter because it has become front stage for all, even for those disinterested in politics. Bear with me as I run through the events because this has lessons that should be applied to the state of the church.
The godless are stirred, threatened by the restraint of morals, those who have integrity. Consider John James running for a senator in Michigan who speaks of faith and family and that men have responsibilities, who is being viciously attacked from the left. The family meltdown is already at nuclear levels but to speak out on this makes one an enemy.
As an observer I see exaggeration and embellishments everywhere, and let’s not forget lying that has become the majority of speech in our culture. This whole scenario unfolding is like producing a Hollywood movie, but it is real life. It has all the drama and emotion of the big screen. The news makes you think it is impromptu and real. But it’s planned, it’s scripted and you have the actors paid by organizations to be vocal. One of them is by the well – known funder of chaos George Soros. This is not a grass roots rebellion, the majority of people involved are paid to lead it and participate in it.
And the activists that are behind the cameras are more than ready to weaponize the information they are reporting. They don’t report all there is, there is a bias in place by what they eliminate. The result is record ratings covering politics as partisans.
We are watching a revolt taking place from those who don’t just disagree, they exhibit hate and anger. Masked men gather together chanting “no border, no walls, no USA at all.” They want an international government instead of state nations.
Masked men have usually been criminals, unless you are a superhero. They were asked if the president showed up at their protest what they would do, comments like a beat down to a murder came from their lips.
The advances of the globalists are being undone by the current administration but the opposition has not accepted this, they are vigorously fighting.
In life there will probably be more you disagree with than agree. The Bible tells us to love your enemies, it also speaks in the end that the love of many will grow cold.” This is not just being indifferent or not caring, it can mean active hatred. Which is what we are seeing now,
The Bible speaks about hatred as murder in one’s heart.
1 John 3:15-16 “Whoever hates his brother is a murderer, and you know that no murderer has eternal life abiding in him.”
The Father said of his son “You have loved righteousness and hated lawlessness.” This is why Jesus said “He who hates Me hates My Father also.” (John 15:23) Lawlessness and righteousness are clashing. Without defining each we should understand to do good pleases God, lawlessness is considered evil.
John 15:18-19 “If the world hates you, you know that it hated Me before it hated you. If you were of the world, the world would love its own.” John 17:14 “the world has hated them because they are not of the world, just as I am not of the world.” “Do not marvel, my brethren, if the world hates you. “
If we side with Jesus the world will hate us. The only love I see increasing is the love of self, the love that Jesus said we need to not have, but to instead love others.
The reaction in politic arena was instinctive and we should have expected it. They voiced their decision not only before all the facts were known, but at the announcement of his nomination. This is called prejudice. Since they could not convince by words or reason, they took action.
The law is the great equalizer when applied correctly, and not abused. They overruled the law had and decided a man’s fate, pronouncing him guilty with no regard what he devoted his life to, upholding the law. Which becomes a strange irony when understood.
His accuser[s] was made a representative of all woman and Kavanaugh became a representative of all men. There arguments against what has been the right way was abandoned and they then became incoherent.
How many people have been falsely accused put in jail for years only to be found out later by DNA or some other evidence they were innocent. There should never be a rush to judgment or decisions made without examining evidence. And yes there was corroborating evidence for his innocence.
We are witnessing a social/political revolution led by those who represent the people. Threats continue to be said and eventually they will become reality (it’s not over by a long shot). If you think this was like seeing sharks circling seeing blood in the water wait until the piranha’s come out.
But there is something deeper that we should not overlook. The clash is also between relative and absolute truth. Between objectivity based on facts, not feelings. This is being fought publicly on TV and the Internet, through social media where most young people get their news from.
Whoever speaks the most and the loudest wins
We now live in a culture being steered by information and by social networks, but is it accurate information? Does it have a purpose that may not be altruistic?
It’s well known the liberals/socialists, “the left” (80-90%) have control over these platforms. It is those who have an agenda that allow exaggerations, lies to be consistently spoken to succeed in their goals of defaming the other side. They are very pragmatic in their approach. The majority of news should be scrutinized by each of us but that can’t be done without applying logic and critical thinking. And that is in short supply these days.
The Alphabet channel news, social media have been the carriers of the disease of disinformation. They present their experts (both sides can do this), interviewing political science graduates, activists who are fully dedicated to “the cause.” They have no reason to be fair. Their commentators then convince you what they think is right. When they do not appeal to logic or reason and give no room to think it becomes dangerous. It’s hard to accept the news as being unbiased when you hear the exact same phrases, all regurgitated for all there talking points. It becomes obvious there is more than reporting going on. The untrustworthiness of public figures is at an all-time high, and for good reason, there is lawlessness in the land of law. We can’t lock up corrupt politicians and are willing to keep others that support them employed at high levels. Truly many have lost all sensibility.
What exactly is taking place? They are bringing people into the collective, to think a certain way. There is real brainwashing taking place as they have their soldiers of confrontation repeat the leader’s words before they take action. A tactic we see in the cults.
Group think is certainly promoted by the news, the media repeats the same phases over and over as they too brainwash the masses. And those who do not exercise critical thinking skills or do not have any logic (the majority) are led like sheep to the slaughter.
The alphabet media channels biased reporting on America goes into other countries (through the airports and internet) which then influences the world against us as a policy of “destroy Trump” is openly watched. It’s not to say that we should not air our dirty laundry when necessary, but the idea of “fake news” does ring the bell loudly. When caught they do an insignificant correction to preserve their image as a news company, no apologies to the people’s lives they tried to ruin. That is why the respect for certain media outlets is about as low as it is for criminals.
The attention of the nation has watched how the new Supreme Court nominee was treated. We have watched the darkest of humanity at work, ignoring the right way things should be done.
What have watched a display of relative truth, truth by feelings conflicting with truth by the facts. That is, “I believe it, therefore it is true to me.” This may not be true to you, but you do not matter because my opinion is more important than yours. Besides this being a perfect example of being close minded, this is
called authoritarianism when exercise through government, it shows the worst of humanity in our sordid history.
The fight escalates. Conservatives have awaken, they never defended their position like they are now. No doubt this is going to continue.
We now see the left using subterfuge, assigning their actions to another. They accuse one side of doing is what they themselves are doing, some call this a transference of guilt. Whatever they accuse you of doing to them, is actually what they are doing to you which has been termed Psychological projection.

A dark cloud now hangs over our nation – Social upheaval is in play
A cultural shift has come upon many people. Like a brain amoeba it has infiltrated our thinking. People are possessed with hatred and anger that they cannot control, it has taken over every fiber of their life. They can’t see past the myopic route they have forged out for themselves that is self – destruction. They are carried by the spirit of the age. They can’t see any other view because this is what makes sense to them as they go by their feelings and it has blinded them.
They have a visceral hatred, a prejudice against those who think differently than they do. There are those who are content or happy with their lives. Apparently this cannot be allowed. Most people mind their own business and want to have peace and less conflict in their lives, but these activists cannot let things slide.
Our country has some within its government who are shameless people without integrity who have their conscience seared. In unity they quickly descended past the shadows into the dark and then to a darker place until no light was allowed.
They did not want to hear truth so they can continue accepting and promoting their lies. Soon “The Lie” will be upon them from which there will be no escape. This is just a preview.
Some have compared what is taking place to McCarthyism. What we are seeing is worse, not since than the Salem witch trials have we seen such hysteria. Uncorroborated, unsubstantiated testimonies that should not, nor cannot make one guilty. The Bible speaks against giving false witness; which is another example of lawlessness.
We are watching people being pronounced guilty first without a presumption of innocence that has been with western culture and ingrained in civilization of the ancient world. There are watershed moments in US history, and we have just seen one.
This is a facet of authoritarian regimes (it was seen in the Inquisition). This is not just inside the government it is becoming the thinking among the people, by “group think.” And that is where the real danger is.
A segment of our population is offended by truth tellers, by those who go by standards. It does not matter how unemotional or careful they are telling the truth, or how logical or right, the other side will always find fault. Why? Because there is something more important to them. This has been seen in certain politician’s actions, but it also translates to religion and other areas of life. It’s often the pursuit of money or power, sometimes it is both.
There is a difference from liberal and leftist. The left does not like losing power, they want to take down America, so we become part of the global community, this why they are angered. The left has declared
war on the constitution, this is really a spiritual war. They know if they change or diminish the constitution and we can be steered toward a one world government. Some people want to control others, they punish them to make them as miserable as they are. There are those who want to serve the country and there are others that care about nothing except getting elected, and lying is second nature to them,
James 4:1-2 “Where do wars and fights come from among you? Do they not come from your desires for pleasure that war in your members? You lust and do not have. You murder and covet and cannot obtain. You fight and war.”
Make no mistake this whole political upheaval was about abortion as much as anything else. Clearly if he was pro – choice we would not have seen this unfold as it did.
You can’t change the facts on abortion 66 million children, a generation the size of some a countries population were prevented from being born.
I do think this will yield something really bad, in fact it already has. I do not think this shift we have seen is temporary but is permanent. Moderation or finding oneself in the middle is no longer an option. You are either for what is right or for lawlessness.
Truth can be found in strange places
No matter what one thinks of Julian Assange he does give us something to consider with facts we may not know: Generation Being Born Now Is The Last To Be Free
Is the information we receive being reshaped? Technological socialism … you don’t think that can take place, it already has. Discussing politics on social media is weighed in the favor of the radicals: say something against their agenda and wrath of the opposition is heard.
Senior Google Scientist Resigns In Protest Over China Censorship Project
How this revolution began and continues
Our universities are breeding revolutionaries,
But it is apparent that it starts when they are young. Consider this news story that is not unique. “Atlanta Neighborhood Charter School will no longer recite the Pledge of Allegiance as part of its morning meeting. (Channel 2 Action News)
Over the past couple of years it has become increasingly obvious that more and more of our community were choosing to not stand and/or recite the pledge.” The decision was made “in an effort to begin our day as a fully inclusive and connected community,” Zelski said. “Teachers and the K-5 leadership team will be working with students to create a school pledge that we can say together at morning meeting.” That pledge, “will focus on students” civic responsibility to their school family, community, country and our global society.” The school tells us exactly what this about by using the term global society (this is something we cover on our new age dvd)
After reaction there were new developments, this story has continued to change since it was originally reported. For the latest AJC version, go to: School reverses Pledge of Allegiance policy after criticism
More than likely our children are being reshaped by the University they attend. The left has already altered the college campuses with their revisioning of history, lies and introduced amoral values.
The youth went to college and once learned “how to think,” not they are taught “what to think.” Academia is defined by its professor’s views, not by facts.

There are those went to further their education in our universities, where agitation and insurrection accompanies their education. The division we see in the country has no end because of those who teach our children and our young adults are made into radicals who hate their own country.
I do not see this getting enough attention. Three concerned liberal academics contend that their fields have been infiltrated by radical theories. They used fabricated authors and credentials in 20 absurd “scholarly” papers — three of which were based on rewrites of “Mein Kampf.”
Each of the papers were peer-reviewed and passed before being published. Which speaks about where our education is at the top.
One rewrote a chapter of Adolf Hitler’s “Mein Kampf”, as a Feminist Manifesto, replacing the parts of Hitler’s words with terms as “solidarity allyship”, “neo-liberal feminism” and “’multi-variate matrix of domination.”
“We intentionally made the papers absurd and used faulty methods to see if they could pass scrutiny at the highest level of academia. Concerningly, they did.” (please be aware of the ads on these sites.)

Today’s future
The new socialistic revolution
Facts are not putty that can be reshaped. Most think all revolutionaries are anti – government, they are not. These want to use the government to control the people. Socialism is a disbelief in God and believes in the state. Socialism has been called soft communism. So many have been taught a share all equality is the best form of Government. We had already tax the rich more than any other country, but France. A certain party of politicians on the left want up to half your wages, which would keep the middle class destitute. We already have the top 1-2% paying 50% of the taxes.
Socialism relies on capitalism to fund it. As Margaret Thatcher said The trouble with Socialism is that eventually you run out of other people’s money. If everyone were socialists what would it look like– we would look like the prime example today –Venezuela.
Marxism is the hatred of God, all religion is replaced with humanistic communism, the state becomes the provider. Which Marx will we accept? Karl or Groucho. You may bet your life on it.
We know by the Bible that technology will be used as a certain man becomes president of the world (elected or not?) who will issue an emblem to be put on people (the Bible calls it a mark Rev.13) to have control over the finances of the world, what you can earn and eat. Equitable redistribution, no private
property is the function of the mark of the beast. Where no one buys or sells, all is controlled by centralized governing.
This is the high tech socialism/communism that is forming. Spiritual socialism, religious humanism is the end goal of all this. The Bibles explanation of where we are headed is a political figure is coming will at a certain point become religious as he declares himself to the world to be God. And with his successes they will believe him.
What is our government?
America is an example of freedom, it is different than many other existing governments. What you hear is that we are a democracy, a democratic government. That is incorrect, we are a Republic. The power of government is held by the people. The people give power to leaders they elect to represent them and are to serve their interests for the betterment. The representatives are responsible for helping all the people in the country, not just a few people.
In a Republic the powers of sovereignty are vested in the people. America may be a called by some a democratic republic, having the best of both, but more accurately the United States is a constitutional republic.
But what happens when those elected think they know better than the people? You have certain segment of the government taking control over the people.
Here is where we make a sobering transition from politics to the church … what happens when certain people in the church think they know better than the Bible and try to have governmental control? The NAR whom are self- appointed authoritarian shepherds claim to have the highest tier of governmental authority over the individual churches by claiming their own apostolic and prophetic appointments. They want to bring the church under a centralized government, them. On the contrary the Bible speaks of autonomous local churches.
They separate people from the Bible just as authoritarian politicians separate people from the law and the constitution. In Scripture they are called Nicolaiten’s. Another is the example of Diotrephes of whom John the apostle writes “Diotrephes, who loves to have the preeminence among them, does not receive us. Therefore, if I come, I will call to mind his deeds which he does, prating against us with malicious words.” (3 John 9-10)
Does this not sound like what is going on inside and outside the church. Diotrepehes was undermining the ways John taught. John comments v.11 “do not imitate what is evil, but what is good.”
There are Identity politics and there is identity Christianity. I am of so and so … Copeland, Hinn, Meyer, Branham etc. Even if the person is a sound teacher (which the many are not), is your relationship with him greater or more important than with Jesus by the Holy Spirit? I see this all the time, so and so says,… but have you checked it with the Bible?
When conflict arises the path of least resistance is used, compromise. The early church grew by the conflicts she was engaged in, openly debating and speaking out.
Today many pastors, even apologists do not tackle the really important doctrinal issues much less conflicts with sheep (some of which they cause). They sweep things under the rug to keep the peace in the church for a pristine image. On the other side pastors tell sheep not judge and have them feel as if they are questioning God if they do “touch not God’s anointed” they quote.
I remember it was not too long ago the church cared about the infiltration of false teaching and teachers, now, too many Pastors speak as a liberal, and say God will take of it, wait, much like Gamaliel’s advice.
The Lord is shaking the earth. The same that we see going on in the secular word is seen in the church and with those calling themselves the church. Things that we never thought we would see are happening. Look at the Roman Catholic Church who has outlived its priesthood organization by the public exposure of what they have been doing for centuries. They will either change or crumble.
America was founded on Judea Christian value system and was always a light to the nations because of a witness of Christ went out. That light is now hidden under a bushel we have become like the nations. Atheism, occultism is stronger than ever and the gospel is not what many of the churches are exporting.
Why do we keep repeating our mistakes in the church? Because of the leaders who do not lead. So many teachers want you to support them in their preaching the gospel when all they do is teach on giving to support them, they only talk ABOUT the gospel, they rarely give it or do not give it at all. Their focus is on money, on gain. They live in mansions, fly private jets and claim they are examples of Jesus. No they are an examples of being of the world.
Ask yourself did any apostle live in a mansion, did Jesus. Where does it say this? Scripture please. They go back to Abraham as proof. A man God made rich as he began a nation to be a theocracy. Why not Job who was rich and lost it all and by God’s grace was replenished again. Ask yourself why they do not speak things into existence as they teach those who hear their words. They never use this power they claim to have, they only talk about it. They are co-dependents on you to support their lying lavish living lifestyle.
It’s almost like a appointing a pastor who does not believe in the Bible to teach the Bible. Imagine the majority of the people in the church living by the word? And not some man’s distorted word. What kind of change that would bring to the people.
The word of the Lord become more precious as the light of truth fades away in our nation and the world. Let us continue in our faith doing good works as we see the days growing darker and the Lords coming as being nearer.
May you know the grace of the Lord.
