Why I'm So Happy In My Precious Lord, God And Savior

1st Peter 1:7-9, “That the trial of your faith, being much more precious than of gold that perisheth, though it be tried with fire, might be found unto praise and honour and glory at the appearing of Jesus Christ: Whom having not seen, ye love; in whom, though now ye see him not, yet believing, ye rejoice with joy unspeakable and full of glory: Receiving the end of your faith, even the salvation of your souls.” Psalms 119:165, “Great peace have they which love thy law: and nothing shall offend them.” Hebrews 12:2a, “Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith...”

I am so happy in the Lord today! I just had to write this article to share my feelings with everyone. It is Saturday, October 24, 2020 and I am abundantly happy in the Lord. God is so awesome, good and precious! Praise ye the Lord O ye saints! Why am I so happy? I am going to share several reason in this blog post why I am so happy in Jesus. Please lend me your heart dear weary traveler. 

Why am I so happy in the Lord today? Well, I started off my day listening to the Gospel of Luke. That's a great way to start off each day, by listening to the inspired King James Bible. As I do each day, I began with a prayer before working on my website ministry, asking God to please give me the divine wisdom to help others. Proverbs 4:7, “Wisdom is the principal thing; therefore get wisdom: and with all thy getting get understanding.

I have had many happy moments lately, simply relishing in the promises of God, earnestly pondering how great my dear Savior truly is! Oh how I know that God My Savior dearly loves me! We cannot love others, until we first allow God to love us! Do you know that God loves you my friend? The Lord truly does! If you are close to God, nothing in this world can bring you low! Psalms 119:165, “Great peace have they which love thy law: and nothing shall offend them.” We are living in a society of miserable people everywhere we turn these days!

Do you know why people (including professed Christians) are so miserable? Hebrews 12:2a, “Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith...” It is that simple to be happy dear reader—LOOK UNTO JESUS! I am happy because of where I am looking. I am looking to Jesus! I got saved by looking to Jesus as a 13 year old teenager. I have lived my life by looking to Jesus, and when I have sinned and failed along life's journey, it is only because I took my eyes off of the dear Lord (Proverbs 14:14). I am 53 years old, and the time is going faster and faster as I grow closer to my blessed homecoming! Proverbs 4:18, “But the path of the just is as the shining light, that shineth more and more unto the perfect day.”

I Am Happy To Have One Inspired King James Bible

Boy that makes me happy! May I truthfully say—You are as close to God as you are to His inspired Word. That is why I make such a big fuss over the infallibility, perfection and inspiration of the Holy Bible. How can a man walk with God, if he has five different Bible versions? Amos 3:3, Can two walk together, except they be agreed? I truly feel sorry for deceived churchgoers, who think that some Bible versions get a certain passage right, but other revisions get it wrong; so they continually consult multiple Bible revisions in an attempt to find the “best” translation (according to their own human wisdom). What a sad way to live the Christian life! 

I have heard umpteen Baptist preachers do this very thing—referring to multiple Bible versions at different times in their preaching, citing their favorite Bible version for any particular passage of Scripture they are exegeting. That is confusing to the listener. I thank God, and am bubbling over with happiness today, that I have only one inspired Holy Bible. Thank God for the precious King James Bible!!! I am so happy to know that I have a perfect, infallible, preserved and inspired King James Bible!!! It burns my heart with joy that I have EVERY WORD that proceedeth out of the mouth of God. Matthew 4:4, “But he answered and said, It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God.I have an EVERY WORD Bible, and it rejoices my heart 24/7! Whew, hallelujah, amen, praise God, I am so happy to have God's complete and perfect Word!!!

I Am Happy Trusting God To Find Me A Prudent Wife

My web visitors know that I have been infatuated with a young woman across the street from me. I have poured out my heart to her online in numerous articles I have written, especially late last year before Christmas. I cried much in prayer, wanting for God to put it in her heart to love me back, but it didn't happen. She was giving me little signals over the years, when I saw her coming and going across the street, which kept me on the path CHASING RABBITS! My pastor at the Bethel Baptist Church on Guam preached Wednesday night about chasing rabbits.” I needed to hear that truth, because it occurred to me that I've been foolishly chasing rabbits. I've been CHASING RABBITS concerning both wanting to return to Harvest Baptist Church, and wanting to marry this young uninterested woman who attends Harvest. I have been barking up an empty tree, wasting my time. Harvest is a lost cause! I've been chasing rabbits in wonderland.

I am reminded of a song by singer Garth Brooks from 1995: “Thank God for unanswered prayer!” The Lord impressed upon my heart: “Do you really want to marry a woman who only acknowledges you if her pastors give her permission?” Here's some of the song's meaningful lyrics:

She was the one that I'd wanted for all times
And each night I'd spend prayin' that God would make her mine
And if he'd only grant me this wish I wished back then
I'd never ask for anything again

Sometimes I thank God for unanswered prayers
Remember when you're talkin' to the man upstairs
And just because he doesn't answer doesn't mean he don't care
Some of God's greatest gifts are unanswered prayers

 

Kris (the former nurse at Harvest) didn't want me. Abby didn't want me. I feel peace in this matter, because it was their decisions, not mine. I believe God's hand is in this (Philippians 2:13). I was so hurt last year when Abby waved like I was her best friend one day, but then abandoned me the next (at the whim of her ungodly pastors). Kindly said, I make my own decisions based upon what God alone thinks. I am thankful that I don't let other people control whom I accept or reject. That is why I have a ministry website like I do—standing alone among deadbeat Neo-evangelicals (like Harvest Baptist Church on Guam) who don't care about God, truth or people. Everyone should be welcome at a church! That's not the case at Harvest Baptist Church on Guam—they're a social club and only select people are welcomed!

They have horribly mistreated me at Harvest since 2014, refusing to even speak with me about coming back to church. I humbly went to them three times in 2017, but their pastors literally told me to: “Go elsewhere!” That is what a religious cult does! Our dear Lord ate with publicans and sinners. Jesus didn't turn away the demon-possessed man in Mark 5:1-15, He befriended and helped the man. It was the hypocritical religious crowd whom the Lord sharply rebuked. Luke 7:39, “Now when the Pharisee which had bidden him saw it, he spake within himself, saying, This man, if he were a prophet, would have known who and what manner of woman this is that toucheth him: for she is a sinner.” That is what Pharisees do—they sinfully judge people, condemning and ostracizing them, like Harvest's pastors have wrongly done to me. The Pharisee in his wicked heart thought Jesus should reject the woman, because she was a sinner. It is hard for me to grasp the fact that the Lord received a demon-possessed broken man, but the local Baptist church won't even allow a broken Bible preacher like me to attend church. Go figure! Some of God's greatest gifts are unanswered prayers!

As a preacher, I have seen people go from loving a pastor, to hating him overnight. That is not what happened at Harvest Baptist Church. I have repeatedly begged them to come back, showing a spirit of reconciliation and love, but they have turned me away in their coldness and heresy. So I have preached against them, taking a stand against their apostasy! I love them at Harvest Baptist Church on Guam, but I hate every false way. Psalms 119:104, “Through thy precepts I get understanding: therefore I hate every false way.The Devil's bibles must be exposed. The Devil's heresy of Lordship Salvation must be exposed. The Devil's ministers like Steve Pettit and John MacArthur must be exposed. To God be the glory!!!

Sadly, when their employment contracts eventually expire in the future at Harvest Baptist Academy on Guam, the Bob Jones Graduates whom Abby thinks are her “friends” at Harvest Baptist Church will move back to the United States, and she'll never hear from them again. That's what the serpent did to Eve in Genesis. Bob Jones University is a hellhole in my humble opinion, “snakes” Jesus called them. Matthew 12:34, O generation of vipers, how can ye, being evil, speak good things? for out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaketh.Now you know why ungodly people hated Jesus so much! The Lord called the respected religious leaders in His community “snakes, just like I am calling Harvest's pastors snakes! They are sly like a serpent, tricking their victims. They speak of “truth while promoting umpteen Bible versions. They speak of “grace” while demanding works (i.e., requiring that you turn from your sins) to receive God's free gift of eternal life. That is an exchange, not a gift!

The Lord impressed upon my heart as I drove home from church this past Wednesday night, that I now am blessed to have a Fundamentalist Baptist pastor, who cares about me and my family. The pastor gave my grandson a small bag of candy after church Wednesday. Little things like that says: “I care. You can tell when someone cares. It is the little things that they do. I am like a sponge, noticing everything. That is only because I am starving to be loved. God even knows the number of hairs upon our head (Matthew 10:30). I love this faithful preacher and his family. I love Bible preachers, because I is one! 

I sincerely believe that God has thwarted my efforts to go back to Harvest, because they are the equivalent of the apostate lukewarm church of Laodicea (Revelation 3:15-22). Kindly said, their pastors at Harvest are indifferent toward truth. Harvest bids Godspeed to Dr. Steve Pettit, who preaches hardcore Lordship Salvation. Dr. Bob Jones Sr. is ashamed up in Heaven at the cesspool of iniquity his college has become at Bob Jones University. I am so happy to contend for the Christian faith!!! There is nothing wrong in America today that couldn't be remedied by a generation of Bible-preaching PREACHERS!!! Instead, we've got a bunch of pretty-boy, wimpy, yuppie type, ministers, who are more concerned about growing a ministry than preaching THE TRUTH!

I have peace in my soul that Kris and Abby didn't want me, because I did all I could to reach out to them in love and respect as a gentleman. I am so happy that God is working this all out, so I don't have to make the decisions. That means the Lord has a different woman for me! The Lord is guiding me as He so promised. Proverbs 3:5-6, “Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.” By the way, I'm not making any promises, but my daughter has been encouraging me to make some YouTube videos of me preaching. I was thinking today of giving a Bible study on the entire book of Proverbs. It would be 31 videos, about 45 minutes long. I am thinking of ideas for videos. Also, Pastor Bob Gray Sr. is inspiring me to make some videos, because he just started doing the same. Here's his new YouTube channel.

It is too early to tell, but I have another Christian young lady on my mind. I first met her in 2017 at Lighthouse Baptist Baptist church on Guam, and she caught my eye back then. I remember when she asked my name and I replied: “Humkafiddlehopper”...lol. I still remember the serious face she had. I didn't pursue her then, because our paths didn't cross, but now they do. I tremendously admire her. One day at a time. I maybe be chasing rabbits again, but time will tell, I have to be patient and prayerful, one day at a time. I didn't think I was worthy of her, but the Lord works in mysterious ways! My mother often said: “The Lord works in mysterious ways, and Mom is always right!

I Am Happy About The Free Grace Gospel

Pastor Bob Gray Sr. is 100% correct that most independent Baptist churches today are PATHETIC! God's curse is upon any church that perverts God's grace, adhering to a counterfeit gospel of Lordship SalvationHarvest is the biggest independent Baptist church on Guam in name only. In reality, the small church I am attending is the biggest independent Baptist church on Guam, because the pastor is 100% correct on the free grace Gospel, door-to-door soulwinning, and the infallible inspired King James Bible. That is why I love the pastor most of all, because he is preaching correctly! My favorite sermon by Pastor Barnes is titled: Why Is Paul So Upset In The Epistle Of Galatians?” There was no video for that sermon, but I sat on the edge of my seat taking notes. My favorite statement from that sermon is: “Anyone who attacks the grace of God, is attacking the God of grace!”

I fully agree with what one of my favorite preachers, Pastor Bob Gray Sr. said:

“Pathetic comes to mind when considering the condition of so many of our independent Baptist churches across this nation. I don’t know, maybe that seems a little strong. Nope, I am sticking with it. PATHETIC!” —Pastor Bob Gray Sr., “Why Isn't It Working For You?

Salvation is not doing your best, it is having Christ's best put to your account through receiving Him by faith. Remember this, if you're depending upon your own good works to get you to Heaven, you're lost! Your salvation had to be purchased with something that was incorruptible, with the precious blood of Jesus Christ!

I Am Happy That I Will Be Given A New Body In Eternity

I am thankful that I can walk and take care of myself. I like walking. Some days I can go walking, but on other days my radiating pain (stenosis and radiculitis) is bad in my arms and legs and I stay home. It all relates to a severe neck injury from 1992 when I was rear-ended by a church bus, and a steep fall at work in 2004 down a mailslide. Albeit, I am thankful that I can still walk, but I have constant pain 24/7 in the bony area of the back of my neck. The prescription pain medications help tremendously. As you can imagine, one of my favorite Bible passages is:

Philippians 3:20-21, “For our conversation is in heaven; from whence also we look for the Saviour, the Lord Jesus Christ: Who shall change our vile body, that it may be fashioned like unto his glorious body, according to the working whereby he is able even to subdue all things unto himself.

I am happy knowing that the Lord will give me a new, perfect and immortal body at the Rapture (1st Corinthians 15:51-58). What a glorious day that will be! 

By God's grace I recorded a dozen pedal steel guitar songs earlier this year. The steel guitar is my life's passion, as a hobby. I love music and thank God for it. God put seven notes in a musical scale. There are seven colors in a rainbow. There are seven days in a week. The number seven is God's favorite number. I indent all of my articles beginning with seven spaces. I love the number seven!

I Am Happy Being Outside The Gate With Jesus

Since 2017, I have been begging like a starving dog for Harvest Baptist Church on Guam to please let me come back to church services. They have consistently refused. I have pleaded for their compassion and love, but they have kicked me in the head, leaving me for dead. Psalms 109:4-5, “For my love they are my adversaries: but I give myself unto prayer. And they have rewarded me evil for good, and hatred for my love.” 

I have been casting my pearl before the swine, begging to be loved back, from Harvest and the young women that I mentioned earlier. Love is getting harder and harder to come by nowadays! I mean, if churches won't love unloved people, then who's going to do it? Matthew 7:6, “Give not that which is holy unto the dogs, neither cast ye your pearls before swine, lest they trample them under their feet, and turn again and rend you.I have been chasing rabbits at Harvest Baptist Church in more ways than one. 

Ironically, the great need of our generation is for churches to repent! 2nd Timothy 2:25-26, “In meekness instructing those that oppose themselves; if God peradventure will give them repentance to the acknowledging of the truthAnd that they may recover themselves out of the snare of the devil, who are taken captive by him at his will.” I love this Bible verse, which clearly shows what repentance is, and is not. Repentance is NOT turning from one's sins. This is the popular heresy of Lordship Salvation. No where does the Bible teach to “turn away from your sins” to receive God's free gift of eternal life. 

2nd Timothy 2:25 teaches that repentance is unto THE TRUTH. Repentance is acknowledging THE TRUTH! Repentance is a man admitting that he is a guilty sinner (Romans 3:19), which facilitates (makes possible) believing to be saved. We are saved by believing, not by repenting, but repentance is necessary to be saved. Repentance is automatic, included in believing. The man who believes the Gospel has also repented. Salvation is very simple.

Most Christians, Bible professors and pastors today are shallow, who refuse to suffer reproach for the name of Jesus. They don't want to be put outside the gate with Jesus! Bless God, if I perish, I perish!!! Count me in with Esther and the persecuted Jews! Count me in with Elijah being a troublemaker in Israel! Count me in with Jesus being rejected and despised by the phony religious crowd!

I Am So Happy To Be God's Redeemed Child

Oh it is wonderful to be a Christian! It is wonderful to be God's child. ...

Psalms 33:1, “Rejoice in the LORD, O ye righteous: for praise is comely for the upright.

Psalms 58:1, “Do ye indeed speak righteousness, O congregation?  do ye judge uprightly, O ye sons of men?

Psalms 96:7, “Give unto the LORD, O ye kindreds of the people, give unto the LORD glory and strength.“”

Psalms 105:6, “O ye seed of Abraham his servant, ye children of Jacob his chosen.

Psalms 113:1, “Praise ye the LORD.  Praise, O ye servants of the LORD, praise the name of the LORD.

Psalms 135:1, “Praise ye the LORD.  Praise ye the name of the LORD; praise him, O ye servants of the LORD.

I am so happy to be a part of God's family (Ephesians 3:14-15). My name is written in Heaven (Luke 10:20). Jesus is preparing for me a home up in Heaven (John 14:1-3). When Jesus returns, He promises that no man will ever take away my joy again (John 16:22). God is going to give me all things (Romans 8:32). What a beautiful Savior! What an awesome God!!! 

Hebrews 12:2a, “Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith...”


I Love You All In The Lord, Whoever You May Be!

The Two Sincere Men That God Killed

Numbers 15:32-35, “And while the children of Israel were in the wilderness, they found a man that gathered sticks upon the sabbath day. And they that found him gathering sticks brought him unto Moses and Aaron, and unto all the congregation. And they put him in ward, because it was not declared what should be done to him. And the LORD said unto Moses, The man shall be surely put to death: all the congregation shall stone him with stones without the camp. And all the congregation brought him without the camp, and stoned him with stones, and he died; as the LORD commanded Moses.” 2nd Samuel 6:5-7, “And David and all the house of Israel played before the LORD on all manner of instruments made of fir wood, even on harps, and on psalteries, and on timbrels, and on cornets, and on cymbals. And when they came to Nachon's threshingfloor, Uzzah put forth his hand to the ark of God, and took hold of it; for the oxen shook it. And the anger of the LORD was kindled against Uzzah; and God smote him there for his error; and there he died by the ark of God.

This is one of the most important articles I have ever written Proverbs 16:25, “There is a way that seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death.All across the world, sincere men are defiling the inspired Word of God, and are perverting the simplicity of the Gospel. I have quoted to you two separate Scripture passages. The first is about a Hebrew man who picked up sticks on the Sabbath Day. Since the Sabbath pictured salvation by faith alone in Jesus Christ, picking up sticks on the Sabbath Day symbolized adding works to God's grace. It was for this reason that God commanded Moses to kill the sincere man, to send a message to everyone in all generations not to mess with the Gospel.

The second Scripture passage is about Uzzah, who sincerely reached forth his hand to steady the Ark of God as it wobbled, but God killed him. The Word of God was contained inside the Ark of God, along with the golden pot of manna, and Aaron's rod that budded (Hebrews 9:4). Please don't miss this truth! Uzzah was very sincere. He had only the best of intentions. God had warned the Jews that if any man touched anything holy, he would surely be put to death (Numbers 4:15). Uzzah reminds me of so many foolish, but sincere people in modern times, who with good intentions change, butcher and corrupt the Word of God. 

Millions of Bible translators, publishers, theologians and preachers have blood on their hands! Apostate Bible colleges—such as Moody Bible Institute, Faith Baptist Bible College And Theological Seminary, and Bob Jones University—who bid Godspeed to the Devil's corrupt Bible revisions—are just as guilty as Uzzah!!! The infamous 'Golden State Killer' (who was convicted of hundreds of atrocious crimes in 2020) is no more of a monster than theologians' Brooke Westcott And Fenton Hort, who brutally raped the Word of God, binding the truth, and spiritually murdering men's souls. They're all monsters!!!

It is a serious offense to tamper with the Gospel or the Word of God. God swiftly killed these two men, as a warning to future generations not to mess with God's grace, not to mess with God's inspired Words! Many of the modern Bible perversions corrupt the meaning of “repentance, thus perverting the Gospel, damning men's souls to Hell by hindering them from seeing the light of THE TRUTH of the Gospel. 2nd Corinthians 4:3, But if our gospel be hid, it is hid to them that are lost: In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them.”

Jesus Is Our Sabbath In Whom We Rest For Salvation

We are warned to enter into God's rest in the New Testament in Hebrews 11:1-11. Don't miss the following Scripture. Carefully notice what the first sentence tells us:
Hebrews 4:10-11, “For he that is entered into his rest, he also hath ceased from his own works, as God did from his. Let us labour therefore to enter into that rest, lest any man fall after the same example of unbelief.”
Did you read that? Those who have truly entered into God's rest (The Gospel of Jesus Christ) have also CEASED FROM HIS OWN WORKS. Boy that's good! Are you listening all you Lordship Salvationists (like Ray Comfort and Paul Washer) who teach that faith alone is not sufficient to be saved? Are you listening John MacArthur, Seventh-day Adventists and Jehovah's Witnesses who teach that HUMAN EFFORT is also required to be saved? The Bible calls all of these false prophets LIARS! No human effort is required for salvation. Repentance is not a change of life; but rather, a change of mind, which means ceasing from one's OWN WORKS (Hebrews 4:1). Biblical repentance is ceasing from your own human effort, and instead believing THE GOSPEL OF JESUS CHRIST. Let me quote this wonderful Scripture again from Hebrews 4:10, “For he that is entered into his rest, he also hath ceased from his own works...” What example of unbelief is Hebrews 4:11 speaking of? Look back to verses 1-2...
Hebrews 4:1-2, “Let us therefore fear, lest, a promise being left us of entering into his rest, any of you should seem to come short of it. For unto us was the gospel preached, as well as unto them: but the word preached did not profit them, not being mixed with faith in them that heard it.”
The Israelites in the Wilderness heard Moses preach the Gospel again and again, but they didn't believe. The reason why the Jews were always complaining is because most of them never got saved. They literally didn't believe in the coming Messiah. Many of them didn't care, but only wanted to party:
1st Corinthians 10:5-7, “But with many of them God was not well pleased: for they were overthrown in the wilderness. Now these things were our examples, to the intent we should not lust after evil things, as they also lusted. Neither be ye idolaters, as were some of them; as it is written, The people sat down to eat and drink, and rose up to play.”
Men are saved when they cease from their own self-righteousness (pictured by the 6-days of work) and instead trust (or rest) completely in the finished redemptive work of Jesus Christ. JESUS PAID IT ALL! From the passages of Scripture I've just shared with you, it is clear that many of the Jews in the Wilderness perished in their sins without Christ and went to Hell. Carefully pay attention to Hebrews 4:1-2 again:
Hebrews 4:1-2, “Let us therefore fear, lest, a promise being left us of entering into his rest, any of you should seem to come short of it. For unto us was the gospel preached, as well as unto them: but the word preached did not profit them, not being mixed with faith in them that heard it.”
God promises to give eternal life to whosoever RESTS in the Gospel of Jesus Christ. As you just read, the preaching of the Gospel didn't profit them because they didn't believe. They had no faith. They heard the Gospel, but it was not mixed with faith in them that heard it. My friend, the Gospel means nothing if you don't believe it. 1st Corinthians 15:1-4 defines the Gospel as the DEATH, BURIAL and RESURRECTION of Jesus Christ. If you REST upon the Gospel, receiving the sacrifice of Jesus Christ on the cross as payment for YOUR SINS, believing that He is physically risen from the dead, you are instantly and eternally saved.

Right Doctrine Matters!

God thought it was an important enough matter to end the lives of two sincere men, who made light of God's Word and the Gospel. A web visitor recently told me that the Jews won't believe on the name of Jesus, so we must evangelize them with a different method, using the name of Yeshua instead. I kindly rebuked them with the inspired Word of God, explaining that there is no salvation apart from the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth (Acts 4:10-12). If an arrogant Jew refuses to submit to the righteousness of God, which is solely through faith alone in Jesus Christ (Romans 10:3-4; Philippians 3:9), then he cannot go to Heaven.

Likewise, just as my sincere web visitor who foolishly wanted to reach Jews without the Gospel, even so are Bible translators today foolish who change the Word of God to satisfy the whims of skeptics, unbelievers and false religions. The New International Version (NIV) is one of the most corrupt Bible revisions. Another horrible corrupt perversion is the English Standard Version (ESV) which Bob Jones University uses, sells and bids Godspeed to. The modern Bible revisions brutally attack Jesus' deity, remove the Godhead, secularize the Bible by removing theological words, add false teachings, and confuse churchgoers by the presence of literally hundreds of English Bible versions. God only authored one Book! We need to reread the Bible, not rewrite it!

We Are Saved By The Precious Blood of Jesus

1st Peter 1:18-21, “Forasmuch as ye know that ye were not redeemed with corruptible things, as silver and gold, from your vain conversation received by tradition from your fathers; But with the precious blood of Christ, as of a lamb without blemish and without spot: Who verily was foreordained before the foundation of the world, but was manifest in these last times for you, Who by him do believe in God, that raised him up from the dead, and gave him glory; that your faith and hope might be in God.”

The Holy Bible teaches in 1st Corinthians 6:20, “What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own? For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God's.” That price is the precious blood of Jesus Christ! The place is the Mercy Seat in Heaven (Hebrews 9:12, 22-24; 12:24). 

We are not saved by sacraments in the Roman Catholic church. We are not saved by turning from our sins. We are not saved by doing good deeds. We are not saved by joining a religious organization like Seventh-Day Adventism. We are not saved by our own human effort. We are saved solely by the sin-cleansing blood of Jesus! 1st John 1:7, “But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin.” Revelation 1:5, “And from Jesus Christ, who is the faithful witness, and the first begotten of the dead, and the prince of the kings of the earth. Unto him that loved us, and washed us from our sins in his own blood, 

A commonly misunderstood passage of Scripture is 1st Corinthians 6:9-11, “Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind, Nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God. And such were some of you: but ye are washed, but ye are sanctified, but ye are justified in the name of the Lord Jesus, and by the Spirit of our God.Carefully notice verse 11... BUT YE ARE WASHED!!! The Bible says: AND SUCH WERE SOME OF YOU!!! We are all guilty sinners. You are either saved by the blood, or you are still lost in your sins.

I knew Dr. Steve Pettit (president of Bob Jones University since 2014) was unsaved, when I heard him preach in BJU chapel on January 26, 2015. Dr. Pettit teaches that faith in Jesus is not enough to be saved. In addition he says that you must faithfully “run the race” until the end to earn the “reward” of “Heaven itself.” A born-again believer doesn't talk like that. I was saved at 13 years of age by the blood of Jesus, and I don't have to live the Christian life to get to Heaven. I've been saved by the blood of the crucified One!

Where Was The Perfect & Inerrant Bible Before 1611?

Psalms 12:6-7, The words of the LORD are pure words: as silver tried in a furnace of earth, purified seven times. Thou shalt keep them, O LORD, thou shalt preserve them from this generation for ever.” Psalms 119:140, “Thy word is very pure: therefore thy servant loveth it.

This is a common argument that King James Bible critics use—Where was the perfect and inerrant Bible before the year 1611? I believe that God has kept His promise in Psalms 12:6-7 to preserve His inspired “pure words” forever, by giving us the King James Bible translation in English. Since critics maintain that there was no perfect and infallible Bible before the King James Bible, then the King James Bible itself cannot be the perfect inspired Words of God, any more than their multi-choice and contradictory Bible versions. Keep in mind that King James Bible critics don't believe that there ever was a perfect, infallible and inspired Bible. They don't defend their ASV, RSV, NASV, NIV, ERV, ESV, NET, HCSB or the Daffy Duck version as being the 100% true innerant words of God in comparison to the other versions. Most of them don't claim to have an infallible Bible, but they taker offense that we do!

There are FOUR different positions that exist today on Bible infallibility:

  1. THE ORIGINALS ONLY POSITION

    Such adherents confess that they believe in something that doesn't exist! If you take a look at their website, most Bible colleges and churches say that only the “original autographs” were inspired. This includes Pensacola Christian College, and The Crown College (Powel, Tennessee). The problem is that no one alive today has ever seen the original manuscripts. There is a woeful hypocrisy among King James Bible critics, who say that there are no perfect and infallible Bible translations, because that is in itself a form of “onlyism.” To deny that we have a perfect, inspired and infallible Bible today is much worse than to believe God has given us an incorruptible Book of the Lord.

  2. ALL RELIABLE BIBLE VERSIONS ARE INSPIRED AND INFALLIBLE.

    This is what Bob Jones University believes. Adherents of this faulty position say all reliable Bible versions are inspired and infallible Words of God. This obviously cannot be right, because all of the modern revisions contradict each other constantly. This is intellectual suicide, which requires giving new meaning to old words. The modern versions change the meaning of hundreds of ancient word meanings.

  3. THE WORDS OF GOD ARE PRESERVED IN THE REMAING ANCIENT MANUSCRIPTS.

    This is the position of Dr. James White and Missionary David Cloud. These are Bible agnostics. Their position is on the same level as saying that God's Words are preserved in Webster's unabridged dictionary. That is, “They're in their someplace!” The truth is that among the literally thousands of remaining manuscripts (partial books, scraps, sections and pieces of the Bible), there are literally thousands upon thousands of very real and serious variant readings. And nobody is really sure of which one's are God's words or not. The fact is that the modern Bible versions are based on the constantly changing theory of what is called, “the science of textual criticism.” They have no fixed and settled text. What they do have, can and does change, on a slightest whim, and no two modern scholars are agreed on what the New Testament should look like.

  4. THERE DOES EXIST A COMPLETE, INSPIRED & INERRANT AND 100% TRUE HOLY BOOK

    This is the Christian Fundamentalist position, which I believe. History evidences the King James Bible as being man's final written authority—the true Words of the Living God. You only have these four options regarding the Bible. There are no other alternatives for you to go with.

Here are FIVE popular views about the Bible:

  1. THE ROMAN CATHOLIC VIEW - They believe the holy mother church and tradition define what is in the Scripture.
  2. THE LIBERAL VIEW - The Bible is fill of myths and legends.
  3. THE NEO-ORTHODOX VIEW - The real issue is what the Bible teaches nd not its historic accuracy.
  4. THE NEO-FUNDAMENTALIST VIEW - All of the fundamentals are in the Bible despite all its mistakes and errors. This is the view held by most Christians today.

    All of these four preceding views share a common denominator—You don't actually have the Word of God in your hands, the Bible merely contains the Word of God. 

  5. THE FUNDAMENTALIST BIBLE BELIEVER'S VIEW - We do have the inspired words of God in our hands. This is the historical position of Christians, that God's Word is inspired today. God's Book of the Lord—the authorized King James Holy Bible—accept no substitutes!
History evidences very obviously that God's hand is upon the King James Bible. No other translation can even compare! If God has given us an inspired Book, it is the King James Bible, and no other translation comes even close! The King James Bible is THE BOOK! Isaiah 55:8-9, “For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the LORD. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts.There's a huge difference between the wisdom of God and the wisdom of men. What saith the Scripture? ...

1st Corinthians 1:18-21, “For the preaching of the cross is to them that perish foolishness; but unto us which are saved it is the power of God. For it is written, I will destroy the wisdom of the wise, and will bring to nothing the understanding of the prudent. Where is the wise? where is the scribe? where is the disputer of this world? hath not God made foolish the wisdom of this world?

Admittedly, the Book of the Lord was in a rather lengthy process of being perfected and brought to full maturity into the English language. We believe that the King James Bible was and is the completely product. In general terms, the Bible versions that existed before the perfection of the King James Bible, followed the same Hebrew text and traditional Greek text. 

For example: The most powerful and clear passage of Scripture regarding the Trinity (Godhead) is 1st John 5:7, “For there are three that bear record in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost: and these three are one.” This vital passage proclaiming the deity of Jesus Christ has been sinfully removed from all of the modern Bible revisions, but it existed in The Wycliffe Bible (1395), The Tyndale Bible (1525), The Coverdale Bible (1535), The Great Bible (1539), The Matthew Bible (1537), The Geneva Bible (1560), The Bishops Bible (1568), even the Catholic Douay-Rheims Bible (1582) contained the full words of 1st John 5:7. Only these modern Devil's Bible removed this precious passage of Scripture. The older Bible translations before the 1611 King James Bible were much more closer to the truth, than all of these modern Bible perversions! 

King James Bible only critics claim that if there was no perfect Bible before the 1611 King James Bible, then our positions blows up or falls to the ground. However, their thinking is flawed. They are guilty of using the wisdom of men rather than the wisdom of God. Their thinking is decided unbiblical. Was there a perfect Bible consisting of the present 66 book canon in the year 90AD? No, not all of the Bible had even been written yet! Why didn't god allow the printing press to be invented until 1455 AD? Most Christians weren't blessed to have a fully printed copy of the Bible until the year 1550 AD. Why did God wait so long? He's God, He's in control of history (HIS-STORY). There wasn't any formal church agreement, on the present-day Protestant Bible consisting of 66 Books, until1563 AD. In the wisdom of God, something can be in the process or even non-existent, and yet God calls it “done.” This is the wisdom of God, which is totally contrary to the wisdom and ways of men.

Bible prophecy is history written in advance! God refers to the book of the Lord before it was even completed. Isaiah 34:16, “Seek ye out of the book of the LORD, and read: no one of these shall fail, none shall want her mate: for my mouth it hath commanded, and his spirit it hath gathered them.” What exactly was this book of the Lord at Isaiah's time in history? Was it all the books of the Bible written up until the time of Isaiah? Was it just the book of Isaiah? In either case, the Bible as we know it today was not a completed book. The New Testament hadn't even been written, yet God calls it “the Book of the Lord and commands us to read it! God sees the end from the beginning, referring to a future event (from our point of view) as a present reality. God can and does refer to the Book of the Lord as being a real object, even though it is still in the process of being written and perfected.

I love the next Bible verse. Daniel 10:21 and 11:2a, “But I will shew thee that which is noted in the scripture of truth: and there is none that holdeth with me in these things, but Michael your prince. ... And now will I shew thee the truth.John 17:17, “Sanctify them through thy truth: thy word is truth.” Here the angel refers to a Book of Scripture that is already written in Heaven, and that is progressively revealed to man. Psalms 119:88-89, “Quicken me after thy lovingkindness; so shall I keep the testimony of thy mouth. For ever, O LORD, thy word is settled in heaven.” This Scripture of truth has already recorded coming events before they happen in time. Nothing takes God by surprise, He sees the end from the beginning. There is a completely Book in Heaven, that God progressively reveals to His people in time and history.

Satan's goal is to undermine and change the truth of God into a lie (Romans 1:25). That is why the Devil in his subtilty has inspired sincerely misguided men to publish hundreds of English Bible versions. Eve was sincere when she ate the forbidden fruit, which ruined her life (Genesis 3:1-5). Proverbs 16:25, “There is a way that seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death.The road to Hell is paved with good intentions (Matthew 7:21-23; Luke 13:23-24)

In the Bible, many times God speaks of future events in past tense, as if they had already happened. God lives in eternity whereas man lives in the created element of time (Revelation 10:6). For example: Genesis 17:5, “Neither shall thy name any more be called Abram, but thy name shall be Abraham; for a father of many nations have I made thee.” God speaks here of future events in past tense, as if they had already accomplished. This promise to Abraham would not be fulfilled for thousands of years. Romans 4:17, “(As it is written, I have made thee a father of many nations,) before him whom he believed, even God, who quickeneth the dead, and calleth those things which be not as though they were.”

Psalms 12:6-7, “The words of the LORD are pure words: as silver tried in a furnace of earth, purified seven times. Thou shalt keep them, O LORD, thou shalt preserve them from this generation for ever.” I believe these verses have a double fulfilment. That is, at the time David penned these words, the Bible was incomplete. It wouldn't be until over 1,000 years later that the Bible would be completed in 96 AD with the completion of the book of Revelation. Many of the Messianic prophecies were not understood in the Old Testament until after they had happened. I like the saying: The Old Testament is the New Testament concealed; the New Testament is the Old Testament revealed. That is a helpful way of looking at the Bible. 

It is important for you dear reader to understand these truths, to answer the $64,000 question: Where was the perfect and inerrant Bible before the year 1611? If God was going to keep His promise to keep His “pure words” from this generation forever, then He must have included, what He knew would be written in the future, as a present reality—the Words of the Lord. Please don't miss this truth dear friend...

If God was going to keep His promise to keep His “pure words” from this generation forever, then He must have included what He knew would be written in the future, as a present reality—the Words of the Lord.

Obviously, God's Words over the centuries have become corrupted through false readings, omissions and additions. That is true of the whole manuscript tradition. If God did not purify His Word, there never would have been a perfect Holy Bible. Please read, 'The Blood Sprinkled Book.' I was compelled with joy to write this article, after hearing an incredible MP3 sermon by Pastor Al Lacy (1933-2016) titled: 'THE BLOOD SPRINKLEDD BOOK!' Pastor Lacy explains that THE BOOK of the Lord must be purified with the blood of the Lamb. Our beloved and inspired King James Bible is very pure, the fulfillment of God's promise. By the way, take a look at what the Devil's bibles have done to corrupt Psalms 12:6-7, removing the Lord's solemn promise to keep and preserve His pure words forever.

The following is another example of future Bible prophecy (events which have not yet happened), in past tense, as if they have already completed. ...

Ephesians 2:4-7, “But God, who is rich in mercy, for his great love wherewith he loved us, Even when we were dead in sins, hath quickened us together with Christ, (by grace ye are saved;) And hath raised us up together, and made us sit together in heavenly places in Christ Jesus: That in the ages to come he might shew the exceeding riches of his grace in his kindness toward us through Christ Jesus.

God speaks of this glorious redemption and new life from the dead, as being a present reality that has already been accomplished. Yet, multiplied millions of us (believers) hadn't even been born yet when these Scriptures were penned. In the same way, the King James Bible believer does not need to someone trace all the way back in history, to find any perfect and inerrant Bible that existed before God brought the finished product of the King James Bible on the scene in 1611. The sovereign God of history sees the end from the beginning. And He can refer to the true Book of the Lord, even when from our point of view, it wasn't yet complete or perfected. As the King James translators themselves wrote in their preface:

“Truly good Christian reader, we never thought from the beginning that we should need to make a new translation, nor yet to make of a bad one a good one, ... but to make a good one better, or out of many good ones, one principal good one, not justly to be excepted against; that hath been our endeavour, that our mark.” 

The King James translators also wrote in their preface to the King James Bible:

“nothing is begun and perfected at the same time, and the later thoughts are thought to be the wiser; so, if we building upon their foundation that went before us, and being holpen by their labours, do endeavor to make that better which they left so good, no man, we are sure, hath cause to mislike us; they, we persuade ourselves, if they were alive, would thank us. ...the same will shine as gold more brightly being rubbed and polished.”

I don't hold the King James Bible translators as my final authority. They were good and godly men, just like the imperfect men who gave us the original autographs. God took sinful men and made them holy to pen the Bible. It is God alone Who knows the end from the beginning. Isaiah 46:9-10, “Remember the former things of old: for I am God, and there is none else; I am God, and there is none like me, Declaring the end from the beginning, and from ancient times the things that are not yet done, saying, My counsel shall stand, and I will do all my pleasure: I love that! God declared from ancient times things that are not yet done. That's my awesome and omnipotent God. Dear reader, you don't have to know what will happen tomorrow, simply trust God Who does! 

The Lord promised in Psalms 12:6-7 to give us a perfect Bible. We read in Matthew 4:4, But he answered and said, It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God.” If we are to live by EVERY WORD that proceeded out of the mouth of God, then we must have an EVERY WORD Bible!!! Either God has given us a perfect, inspired and infallible Bible, or He hasn't. God made us a promise in Psalms 12:6-7 to keep and preserve His pure words from this generation forever. The fact that all of the Devil's modern revisions change and remove this promise, saying that God protects the saints instead of preserving His Words, plainly evidences foul play and wickedness!

1st Corinthians 1:19-21, “For it is written, I will destroy the wisdom of the wise, and will bring to nothing the understanding of the prudent. Where is the wise? where is the scribe? where is the disputer of this world? hath not God made foolish the wisdom of this world?” It is the barren (no soulwinning) intellectual bunch, deeper-life theologians, who insist that we don't have a complete, innerant, perfect, infallible and inspired Bible. Only the King James Bible believer consistently, historically and logically stands for the doctrinal truths that God has kept His promises to preserve His inspired Words; and that there really exists such a thing as a complete, inerrant and 100% true and accurate Holy Bible!!! 

Remember God says: I will destroy the wisdom of the wise, and will bring to nothing the understanding of the prudent. Where is the wise? where is the scribe? where is the disputer of this world? hath not God made foolish the wisdom of this world?” Even God Who calleth those things that be not, as though they were. Romans 4:17b, “even God, who quickeneth the dead, and calleth those things which be not as though they were.” I want to thank Evangelist Will J. Kinney for his website ministry, from which I obtained most of this information to write this blog article. God bless you my dear brother!

John 14:1-6, “Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me. In my Father's house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also. And whither I go ye know, and the way ye know. Thomas saith unto him, Lord, we know not whither thou goest; and how can we know the way? Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.”

The Simple Plan Of Salvation In Acts 15

Acts 15:1, 7-11 and 24, “And certain men which came down from Judaea taught the brethren, and said, Except ye be circumcised after the manner of Moses, ye cannot be saved. ...And when there had been much disputing, Peter rose up, and said unto them, Men and brethren, ye know how that a good while ago God made choice among us, that the Gentiles by my mouth should hear the word of the gospel, and believe. And God, which knoweth the hearts, bare them witness, giving them the Holy Ghost, even as he did unto us; And put no difference between us and them, purifying their hearts by faith. Now therefore why tempt ye God, to put a yoke upon the neck of the disciples, which neither our fathers nor we were able to bear? But we believe that through the grace of the Lord Jesus Christ we shall be saved, even as they. ...Forasmuch as we have heard, that certain which went out from us have troubled you with words, subverting your souls, saying, Ye must be circumcised, and keep the law: to whom we gave no such commandment:

The Bible says a group of false witnesses came down from the mountainous region of Judaea to [likely] Antioch, teaching that to be saved a person must keep the law. They taught that the men must be circumcised according to the law of Moses. This caused a lot of debate and heated arguments. So the church sent messengers to Jerusalem to ask the apostles the truth. (They didn't have phones or the internet back then.) So the Apostle Peter rose up to clear the matter for all to hear. Peter said that it was God's will to send him to preach the Gospel to the Gentiles, and that whosoever heard and believed it was saved by faith alone. Peter said that God can see into their hearts, and knows when a person believes, and when they do He saves and seals them with the blessed Holy Spirit.

My heart was warmed today as I heard this passage of Scripture read by Alexander Scourby. Please notice the simplicity of the plan of salvation. A person simply hears the Gospel as a needy sinner, believes it, and they are saved by faith alone. That is all that God requires. Acts 15:7b, “that the Gentiles by my mouth should hear the word of the gospel, and believe.” Acts 15:9b, “purifying their hearts by faith. We are saved by God's grace through faith alone in the Gospel (i.e., the Good News) of Jesus Christ.

How does this compare to the complicated plans of salvation taught by Pastor John MacArthur, Evangelist Billy Graham and Dr. Steve Pettit? Pastor MacArthur often uses the word “COST” when preaching his complicated version of how to be saved. In fact, MacArthur's plan of salvation is so hard and complicated that he says, quote: There is no such thing as a childhood conversion.” That is exactly what he said! What do you mean children cannot be saved? Mark 10:13-14, “And they brought young children to him, that he should touch them: and his disciples rebuked those that brought them. But when Jesus saw it, he was much displeased, and said unto them, Suffer the little children to come unto me, and forbid them not: for of such is the kingdom of God.Who are you going to believe, Jesus or MacArthur? Yes, little children can be saved. Getting saved is that easy!

I marvel, as did the Apostle Paul, at how gullible professed Christian people are. Galatians 1:6-7, “I marvel that ye are so soon removed from him that called you into the grace of Christ unto another gospel: Which is not another; but there be some that trouble you, and would pervert the gospel of Christ.Those are my exactly sentiments toward Bob Jones University and the Harvest Baptist Church on Guam (all BJU alumni). I marvel how they were so soon removed from the free grace Gospel which Dr. Bob Jones Sr. (1883-1968) preached unto them, to descend to follow the damnable Lordship Salvation heresy of Pastor John MacArthur. Dear friend, do you have any idea what Dr. MacArthur teaches? Take a look at his plan of salvation...

“The narrow gate is hard to find and hard to go through, because it demands: denial of self, denial of self-righteousness, recognition of sin, full repentance, submission to Christ, commitment to obey Him, and follow Him no matter what the cost!”  
—Pastor John MacArthur, a quote from his sermon titled, “Saved Or Self-Deceived, Part One” (time: 4:25 in YouTube sermon video)

Is that what the Apostle Peter told everyone? Acts 15:7b, “that the Gentiles by my mouth should hear the word of the gospel, and believe.” Acts 15:9b, “purifying their hearts by faith.That's all Peter said! Peter simply said to BELIEVE the Gospel when you hear it. So how does John MacArthur get all that extra junk? Where does the Bible say you must follow Christ to be saved? Where are we told to make a commitment to obey Him? Where are we taught to make full repentance of all our sins? In his popular 1988 book titled, “The Gospel According to Jesus,” Pastor John MacArthur even heretically uses the word “exchange” concerning being saved:

“Thus in a sense we pay the ultimate price for salvation when our sinful self is nailed to a cross. . . . It is an exchange of all that we are for all that Christ is. And it denotes implicit obedience, full surrender to the lordship of Christ. Nothing less can qualify as saving faith.” [emphasis added] —Pastor John MacArthur; The Gospel According to Jesus, p. 140

Salvation is not an exchange! Receiving the free gift of eternal life is not a trade. It is a gift from God (Romans 5:15-18, 6:23; Ephesians 2:8-9). John MacArthur is preaching another gospel of partial faith in Christ plus works! Salvation is not doing your best, it is having Christ's best put to your account through receiving Him by faith. Faith is the only righteous thing that I can do! The only thing that you contribute to your salvation is the sin that made it necessary.

The really tragic thing is that Bob Jones University today has abandoned the free grace theology of it's Fundamentalist founder, allowing a theological madman like Dr. Steve Pettit to destroy the college, and he certainly has since 2014. They even allow homosexuals to perform at BJU now! Tares have entered in among the wheat. Please heed my warning dear reader. We all must expose the apostasy at places like Bob Jones University and Harvest Baptist Church, who are preaching another gospel. I am simply telling THE TRUTH. Take a look at how Dr. Steve Pettit's theology aligns with Ellen G. White's theology (Seventh-Day Adventism's evil false prophetess). They both teach the Devil's lie of Lordship Salvation.

What exactly is the Gospel? It is the GOOD NEWS” of Jesus Christ—the only begotten Son of God Who was crucified on a cross—Who died, was buried and physically resurrected the third day. What saith the Scripture? ...

1st Corinthians 15:1-4, Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand; By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain. For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:

It doesn't get any plainer than that folks. God knows my heart, that I am not trying to be mean or unkind. I love God's Word. Psalms 119:104, “Through thy precepts I get understanding: therefore I hate every false way.” I absolutely hate all these modern English Bible revisions, hundreds of them, that each change what God said a little bit, so that no one really has any confidence in the infallibility and inspiration of God's Word anymore! One of the greatest sins of our generation is indifference in the Bible colleges and churches. They have sold out to peer pressure from intellectuals, who tell us that we don't have a perfect Bible today. They say that no one has ever seen God's Word, because only the original autographs were inspired. Do you really believe that garbage? 

I find no fault in the King James Bible. I believe I hold the inspired, perfect and infallible Word of God in my hand. Of all the preachers today who continually correct the King James Bible, I have never failed to be able to properly interpret the Bible by simply comparing Scripture with Scripture. It also helps to use a good Hebrew and Greek concordance, Bible dictionary, and Lexicon to “study as we are commanded in 2nd Timothy 2:15. God has given us these tools so that we can study. If you listen to different preachers who correct the Bible, they are all in disagreement as to how the Bible should have been properly written. They don't agree!

Proverbs 24:6, “For by wise counsel thou shalt make thy war: and in multitude of counsellers there is safety.” I trust those 54 scholars who labored diligently for 8 years to give us the 1611 King James Bible. Some of those men spoke fluent Hebrew at age 6. Who am I, or you, to sit in judgment on God's Word, to correct those 54 men? I couldn't even order a pizza in Greece if I went there, and neither can all these preachers today who sit in judgment on God's Word, regardless of how educated they may think they are. Think about that dear friend. I agree with Pastor Bob Gray Sr., who wisely said: “The Bible doesn't need to be rewritten, it needs to be reread!

In our text Scripture passages from Acts 15:1, 7-11 and 24 we see the simplicity that is in Christ. 2nd Corinthians 11:3-4, “But I fear, lest by any means, as the serpent beguiled Eve through his subtilty, so your minds should be corrupted from the simplicity that is in Christ. For if he that cometh preacheth another Jesus, whom we have not preached, or if ye receive another spirit, which ye have not received, or another gospel, which ye have not accepted, ye might well bear with him.Dr. Steve Pettit falsely says you must faithfully run the race until the finish to get to Heaven. That is a reward, not a gift! Kindly said, Steve Pettit is a tare among the wheat at Bob Jones University, and he needs to get born-again before it is too late. The fact that he bids Godspeed to John MacArthur evidences further that he is not saved. I love the simple truths taught in Acts 15 concerning salvation.

Hear Ye Him!

Matthew 17:5, “While he yet spake, behold, a bright cloud overshadowed them: and behold a voice out of the cloud, which said, This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased; hear ye him.”

When Moses and Elijah appeared with the Lord in the presence of Peter, James and John on the mount (Matthew 17:1-5), the Apostles offered to build 3 tabernacles for them. This displeased God the Father, because only Jesus is to be glorified; not Moses or Elijah. A cloud overshadowed Elijah, Moses and Jesus and God the Father said: “This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased; HEAR YE HIM.” My heart's desire is for all my web visitors to HEAR YE HIM. Hear the Words of Jesus Christ in the Word of God.

One of the main reasons why so many people nowadays are confused and having difficulty settling their theological beliefs, is because they are being blown about by every wind of doctrine on television and the internet. Ephesians 4:14-16, “That we henceforth be no more children, tossed to and fro, and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the sleight of men, and cunning craftiness, whereby they lie in wait to deceive; But speaking the truth in love, may grow up into him in all things, which is the head, even Christ: From whom the whole body fitly joined together and compacted by that which every joint supplieth, according to the effectual working in the measure of every part, maketh increase of the body unto the edifying of itself in love.” 

Please notice Ephesians 4:14b-15, “by the sleight of men, and cunning craftiness, whereby they lie in wait to deceive; But speaking the truth in love...” The Greek word for sleight is kubeia, which refers to a die used for gambling. That is, when you listen to men teach and preach about religion, you are taking a gamble with your life and eternal destiny! You had better do as Jesus commanded my friend and SEARCH THE SCRIPTURES”!!! Don't gamble dear reader with you soul. John 5:39, Search the scriptures; for in them ye think ye have eternal life: and they are they which testify of me. HEAR YE HIM!!!

I am just a voice crying in cyberspace, pointing people to the precious Lord. I don't want you to believe anything I say. I want you to SEARCH THE SCRIPTURES to see if what I am preaching agrees with God's Word. Don't follow me, HEAR HE HIM! Follow me if I follow God's Word, but don't you dare take my word for it, because I could be wrong sometimes. 

In the book of Acts, the Bereans were more noble the Apostle Paul said, than they at Thessalonica, because the Bereans didn't just believe what he preached to them. The Bereans went to check their Bibles at home, to verify Paul's teachings to see if he was accurate. Acts 17:11, “These were more noble than those in Thessalonica, in that they received the word with all readiness of mind, and searched the scriptures daily, whether those things were so.I am going to do just like the Bereans! 

I am disgusted with most so-called “Bible colleges today! All across America today young people are being indoctrinated with the Devil's lie that you must turn from your sin to be saved, which is not even found in the Bible. If those impressionable young people would simply SEARCH THE SCRIPTURES, they would see that Bob Jones University is lying to them! I say that kindly, but speaking THE TRUTH in love as we just read in Ephesians 4:15. Hear ye Him!


Hear ye Him!

Evildoers Cannot Escape Judgment, Damnation And Hell

Matthew 23:33, “Ye serpents, ye generation of vipers, how can ye escape the damnation of hell?” Hebrews 10:31, “It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God.”

I was thinking today about how people are natural cowards. All my life I have heard of scandals and cover-ups, where a group of people make every effort to protect themselves from getting into trouble. Churches do it. Police departments do it. Hospitals do it. The military does it. Professional sports teams do it. Colleges do it (secular and Christian alike). Realtors do it. Courts do it. Governments do it. Lawyers do it. Companies do it. When something goes wrong, people are notorious to try to cover it all up. People will lie, falsify records, delete files, blackmail victims and witnesses, use all types of legal protections, and stood lower than many people can imagine, all to cover-up evil and liability. That is the depraved human nature!

Thankfully, no one can escape the sight and judgment of almighty God. Judges and lawyers are notorious for using all types of shady legal documents to protect themselves, but they cannot hide their evil deeds from God. Hebrews 4:13, “Neither is there any creature that is not manifest in his sight: but all things are naked and opened unto the eyes of him with whom we have to do.” That Bible verse should terrify the Golden State Killer and every monster like him. That Bible verse should strike fear into every evildoer! That verse should strike terror and fear into every lying lawyer, biased judge and merciless prosecutor. 

No one ever gets away with evil. Most criminals never get caught. Only 50% of indicted murderers are ever convicted for their crimes. Most murders remain unsolved. But God sees everything and will punish all men for their evil deeds (Revelation 20:12-15). Ecclesiastes 5:8, “If thou seest the oppression of the poor, and violent perverting of judgment and justice in a province, marvel not at the matter: for he that is higher than the highest regardeth; and there be higher than they.” When Pol Pot was mercilessly murdering millions of innocent Cambodians in the early 1970's, the victims felt hopeless, that there would never be any justice. Oh dear friend, there WILL BE justice! The Bible promises it so! 

German Chancellor Adolf Hitler didn't get away with anything. Monsters' George H. and George W. Bush didn't get away with anything. The Bible guarantees it! Ecclesiastes 12:13-14, “Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter: Fear God, and keep his commandments: for this is the whole duty of man. For God shall bring every work into judgment, with every secret thing, whether it be good, or whether it be evil.” The ungodly thieves who control Wall Street, stealing billions of dollars from na├»ve Americans, aren't getting away with anything. All things are naked and open unto the eyes of God, with Whom we have to do. It matters not if you believe in God, you will be held accountable to Him!

The U.S. government, and the ungodly state governments, who so often afflict citizens and families, will be held liable in eternity. The ungodly state of Illinois, who hurt my family in 2002, falsely accusing us as parents, because they wanted to make a guinea pig out of our daughter, have our blood on their hands. The judge was an ungodly thug! Our thug lawyer bilked us for over $20,000. The state of Illinois has deep pockets with unlimited funds to destroy families, but we had to sell our home to pay for the damages caused by the wicked state of Illinois. God will punish them for their evil deeds! God doesn't miss a thing! Proverbs 5:21, “For the ways of man are before the eyes of the LORD, and he pondereth all his goings.” 

Do you think the very God, your Maker, who knows the number of hairs upon your head, didn't see those thugs who stole your car long ago? Matthew 10:30, “But the very hairs of your head are all numbered.” My car was stolen in 2004 in the Logan Square area of Chicago. The police found it a week later totaled, smashed into a telephone pole. The criminals popped the trunk, stealing all my possessions, likely to sell for drug money. The police told me which city pound my car was towed to. The massive sized lot was a sea of cars. There must have been 25,000 vehicles. I walked through the muddy ground, navigating around puddles of oil. I walked for miles. When I found what was left of my car, I wept much. I felt victimized.

When I got back to the front gate, the lot attendant (a black man) saw my tears and said: “It's only a car.” I replied: “You don't understand. My family and I went places together in that car for the past 5 years. I went to the Wisconsin State Fair in that car with my family. We went out to eat in that car. We went to church in that car. I walked with God and prayed in that car. A lot of living and memories happened in that car. It is a part of my life!” You better believe that I cried. That car had cost me $4,800, and now it was FUBR (Fu**** Up Beyond Recognition). That is a popular military term that every soldier is familiar with. Kind of like Bob Jones University today... FUBR!

Proverbs 15:3, “The eyes of the LORD are in every place, beholding the evil and the good.Nothing escapes the eyes of the Lord. One of the secrets to the Christian life is to learn quickly that God sees everything, even the very thoughts that you think. Proverbs 24:12, “If thou sayest, Behold, we knew it not; doth not he that pondereth the heart consider it? and he that keepeth thy soul, doth not he know it? and shall not he render to every man according to his works?Both saved and unsaved alike will be judged according to their works. The difference is that the saved will be judged as God's redeemed children, safe from any criminal prosecution by God for their sins (John 3:18; Romans 8:1; 2nd Corinthians 5:10); but the unsaved will be prosecuted as criminals for their sins and be punished in the Lake of Fire forever (Revelation 20:12-15). Acts 13:39 declares every believer JUSTIFIED FROM ALL THINGS!

All across America good parents are having their children taken away from them by incompetent thug social workers (MP3)—many of whom are welfare types, Marxist liberals, feminists, kooks, lesbians and reformed gang members—human trash with a badge. Social workers are oftentimes like children who have found their father's loaded gun, having power to hurt families but lacking the sense how to properly use it to help people. Oh listen friend, no one shall escape God's judgment. Matthew 23:33, “Ye serpents, ye generation of vipers, how can ye escape the damnation of hell?Thankfully, anyone can escape the wrath of God, through faith in the blood of Jesus. Romans 5:9, Much more then, being now justified by his blood, we shall be saved from wrath through him.
