WE CAN WORSHIP GOD IN VAIN

( Leith Cunningham 2/2/2013 )

But in vain they do worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men.
( Matthew 15:9 )

The Lord says: "These people come near to me with their mouth and honor me with their lips, but their hearts are far from me. Their worship of me is made up only of rules taught by men.  ( Isaiah 29:13 )
These are all destined to perish with use, because they are based on human commands and teachings. ( Colossian 2:22 )
They worship me in vain; their teachings are but rules taught by men.'  ( Mark 7:7 )

WHAT WOULD CAUSE GOD TO MAKE STATEMENTS SUCH AS THIS, ABOUT HIS OWN SPECIAL PEOPLE? WHY WOULD HE DO SUCH A THING? IS HE SERIOUS ABOUT THIS?

Is God really saying we can worship Him in vain? That’s exactly what He is saying and with just a tiny bit of research and looking into it, we can determine the reason that is true. To get a better grasp of this truth, lets go back a few centuries. Revealing the truth should cause one to wonder why He even lets us live, without wondering why it is that He will not accept our worship.

Time and again Israel, the special people God had chosen for Himself, had shown themselves to be stubborn and stiff necked in following after His way being delivered to them by Moses. Having their collective heels dug in and rebellious at every turn in the road. Finally after miraculously having delivered them out of the hand of Egyptian slavery after 400 years and leading them to the land of promise. They moaned, groaned, grumbled and murmured their way along walking on their lower lips and longing for their life of slavery back in Egypt. To the point that when Moses was in communication with God on Mt. Sinai, They made such a fuss and ruckus of a rebellion that caused Aaron to do something stupid. He made them a golden calf to worship in place of God.

Exodus 32 New International Version (NIV) The Golden Calf

32 When the people saw that Moses was so long in coming down from the mountain, they gathered around Aaron and said, “Come, make us gods who will go before us. As for this fellow Moses who brought us up out of Egypt, we don’t know what has happened to him.”2 Aaron answered them, “Take off the gold earrings that your wives, your sons and your daughters are wearing, and bring them to me.” 3 So all the people took off their earrings and brought them to Aaron. 4 He took what they handed him and made it into an idol cast in the shape of a calf, fashioning it with a tool. Then they said, “These are your gods, Israel, who brought you up out of Egypt.” 

5 When Aaron saw this, he built an altar in front of the calf and announced, “Tomorrow there will be a festival to the Lord.” 6 So the next day the people rose early and sacrificed burnt offerings and presented fellowship offerings. Afterward they sat down to eat and drink and got up to indulge in revelry. 7 Then the Lord said to Moses, “Go down, because your people, whom you brought up out of Egypt, have become corrupt. 8 They have been quick to turn away from what I commanded them and have made themselves an idol cast in the shape of a calf. They have bowed down to it and sacrificed to it and have said, ‘These are your gods, Israel, who brought you up out of Egypt.’

9 “I have seen these people,” the Lord said to Moses, “and they are a stiff-necked people. 10 Now leave me alone so that my anger may burn against them and that I may destroy them. Then I will make you into a great nation.” 11 But Moses sought the favor of the Lord his God. “Lord,” he said, “why should your anger burn against your people, whom you brought out of Egypt with great power and a mighty hand? 12 Why should the Egyptians say, ‘It was with evil intent that he brought them out, to kill them in the mountains and to wipe them off the face of the earth’? 

Turn from your fierce anger; relent and do not bring disaster on your people. 13 Remember your servants Abraham, Isaac and Israel, to whom you swore by your own self: ‘I will make your descendants as numerous as the stars in the sky and I will give your descendants all this land I promised them, and it will be their inheritance forever.’” 14 Then the Lord relented and did not bring on his people the disaster he had threatened. 15 Moses turned and went down the mountain with the two tablets of the covenant law in his hands. They were inscribed on both sides, front and back. 16 The tablets were the work of God; the writing was the writing of God, engraved on the tablets. 17 When Joshua heard the noise of the people shouting, he said to Moses, “There is the sound of war in the camp.” 18 Moses replied: “It is it is the sound of singing that I hear.”

19 When Moses approached the camp and saw the calf and the dancing, his anger burned and he threw the tablets out of his hands, breaking them to pieces at the foot of the mountain. 20 And he took the calf the people had made and burned it in the fire; then he ground it to powder, scattered it on the water and made the Israelites drink it.21 He said to Aaron, “What did these people do to you, that you led them into such great sin?”22 “Do not be angry, my lord,” Aaron answered. “You know how prone these people are to evil. 23 They said to me, ‘Make us gods who will go before us. As for this fellow Moses who brought us up out of Egypt, we don’t know what has happened to him.’ 24 So I told them, ‘Whoever has any gold jewelry, take it off.’ Then they gave me the gold, and I threw it into the fire, and out came this calf!” 25 

Moses saw that the people were running wild and that Aaron had let them get out of control and so become a laughingstock to their enemies. 26 So he stood at the entrance to the camp and said, “Whoever is for the Lord, come to me.” And all the Levites rallied to him. 27 Then he said to them, “This is what the Lord, the God of Israel, says: ‘Each man strap a sword to his side. Go back and forth through the camp from one end to the other, each killing his brother and friend and neighbor.’” 28 The Levites did as Moses commanded, and that day about three thousand of the people died. 29 Then Moses said, “You have been set apart to the Lord today, for you were against your own sons and brothers, and he has blessed you this day.”

30 The next day Moses said to the people, “You have committed a great sin. But now I will go up to the Lord; perhaps I can make atonement for your sin.” 1 So Moses went back to the Lord and said, “Oh, what a great sin these people have committed! They have made themselves gods of gold. 32 But now, please forgive their sin—but if not, then blot me out of the book you have written.” 33 The Lord replied to Moses, “Whoever has sinned against me I will blot out of my book. 34 Now go, lead the people to the place I spoke of, and my angel will go before you. However, when the time comes for me to punish, I will punish them for their sin.” 35 And the Lord struck the people with a plague because of what they did with the calf Aaron had made.In 1 Samuel 8, 

We see that Israel, the people of God, became disgruntled and unhappy for not having a king as other nations had. After experiencing all of the miracles that God had performed on their behalf, they rejected Him as the One to rule over them. Here is what God tells us about that. And the LORD said to Samuel, Listen to the voice of the people in all that they say to you: for they have not rejected you, but they have rejected me, that I should not reign over them . ( 1 Samuel 8:7 ) 8. As they have done from the day I brought them up out of Egypt until this day, forsaking me and serving other gods, so they are doing to you. 9. Now listen to them; but warn them solemnly and let them know what the king who will reign over them will claim as his rights.” 10. 

Samuel told all the words of the Lord to the people who were asking him for a king. 11. He said, “This is what the king who will reign over you will claim as his rights: He will take your sons and make them serve with his chariots and horses, and they will run in front of his chariots. 12. Some he will assign to be commanders of thousands and commanders of fifties, and others to plow his ground and reap his harvest, and still others to make weapons of war and equipment for his chariots. 13. He will take your daughters to be perfumers and cooks and bakers. 14. He will take the best of your fields and vineyards and olive groves and give them to his attendants. 15. 

He will take a tenth of your grain and of your vintage and give it to his officials and attendants. 16. Your male and female servants and the best of your cattle and donkeys he will take for his own use. 17. He will take a tenth of your flocks, and you yourselves will become his slaves. 18. When that day comes, you will cry out for relief from the king you have chosen, but the Lord will not 19. But the people refused to listen to Samuel. “No!” they said. “We want a king over us. 20. Then we will be like all the other nations, with a king to lead us and to go out before us and fight our battles.” 21. When Samuel heard all that the people said, he repeated it before the Lord. 22. The Lord answered, “Listen to them and give them a king.” Then Samuel said to the Israelites, “Everyone go back to your own town.” ( Samuel 8: 8- 22 ) ( end quote )

So God gives His people a king as they have demanded. He had already made a decision to give them a king, but not at this time. He uses this incident to teach them a valuable lesson that still goes on to this day. No matter whom it is that God gives to us as a leader, we gripe and bellyache the same as those stiff necked ancient relatives of years gone by. Believing now however, it was ourselves who got Mr. or Mrs. so and so elected to power. When in truth and in fact it is God alone whom it is that places leaders into their positions of power and authority. The King's heart is in the hands of the Lord, He turns it wherever He desires. (Prov. 21:1)

Commentary: Men make choices and decisions every day, but something (or Someone) creates a circumstance that causes these decisions. If I scratch my body (my own choice), I do it because I have an itch. If I eat a meal (my own choice), I do so because I am hungry. If I hurt another person (my choice), I do so because they did some harm to me. For every choice we make, there is a cause greater than the choice. It is your basic cause/effect principle. For every effect (in this case our choice), there is some cause that prompted the action. As no one would deny that God is sovereign over all things (including Satan), it is God who can change circumstances as He pleases to bring about the desired effect. In this way, we may think we are totally independent from God in the choices we make, but in reality, there is Someone greater than ourselves working behind the scenes to bring about a perfectly orchestrated finale. God is the great conductor who controls and leads men to respond with a simple wave of His baton.

( Daniel 4:17 ) New International Version (NIV) 17 “‘The decision is announced by messengers, the holy ones declare the verdict, so that the living may know that the Most High is sovereign over all kingdoms on earth and gives them to anyone he wishes and sets over them the lowliest of people.’ ( Daniel 4:32 ) And they shall drive thee from men, and thy dwelling shall be with the beasts of the field: they shall make thee to eat grass as oxen, and seven times shall pass over thee, until thou know that the most High ruleth in the kingdom of men, and giveth it to whomsoever he will.

Commentary: And giveth it to whomsoever he will - That is, he gives dominion over men to whomsoever he chooses. It is not by human ordering, or by arrangements among men. It is not by hereditary right; not by succession; not by conquest; not by usurpation; not by election, that this matter is finally determined; it is by the decree and purpose of God. He can remove the hereditary prince by death; he can cause him to be set aside by granting success to a usurper; he can dispose of a crown by conquest; he can cut off the conqueror by death, and transfer the crown to an inferior officer; he can remove one who was the united choice of a people by death, and put another in his place. So the apostle Paul says, "There is no power but of God: the powers that be are ordained of God" Romans 13:1.

( 2 Peter 2:10 ) But chiefly them that walk after the flesh in the lust of uncleanness, and despise government. Presumptuous are they, selfwilled, they are not afraid to speak evil of dignities.
( Exodus 22:28 ) "Do not blaspheme God or curse the ruler of your people
( 2 Peter 3:3 ) First of all, you must understand that in the last days scoffers will come, scoffing and following their own evil desires.

We are beginning to see the mind of God as He deals with such an unruly bunch of stubborn stiff necked people as we all have become. Rejecting God reigning in our lives as we learn the lessons of being under the rule of man. Helping us to realize that it is not in man at this time to govern himself. 

There is a way that seems right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death. ( Proverbs 16:25 ) There is a way that seems right to a man, but in the end it leads to death. ( Proverbs 14:12 ) 

But we still reject God and look to man for our guidance and direction. We are quick to align ourselves with the teachings of Satan and his ministers whom appear as angels of light, believing as it were all sorts of false doctrines, while at the same time not believing the word of God to the contrary. We are steadily steeping ourselves deeper and deeper into the belief system of the Babylon of confusion of this worlds counterfeit Christianity that God is telling us to come out of. 

And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, my people, that you be not partakers of her sins, and that you receive not of her plagues. ( Revelation 18:4 ) 

This worlds religious system that has substituted error in the place of truth. Notice it is His own people that God is addressing here. Yet like a frog placed in a pan of warm water that sits on a stove. While the water ever so slowly begins to warm little by little, we become comfortable and relax all the more. Until suddenly we have been boiled to death without ever having attempted to jump out of the pan. There is a price to be paid for our complacency in our reluctance to do as God commands us to be doing. God will not be mocked forever and at some point in time will administer His correction to set all things right. Lets read a little about the future here.

The Sheep and the Goats

(Matthew 25: 31-46 ) 31 When the Son of man shall come in his glory, and all the holy angels with him, then shall he sit on the throne of his glory: 32 And before him shall be gathered all nations: and he shall separate them one from another, as a shepherd divides his sheep from the goats: 33 And he shall set the sheep on his right hand, but the goats on the left. 34 Then shall the King say to them on his right hand, Come, you blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world: 35 For I was an hungered, and you gave me meat: I was thirsty, and you gave me drink: I was a stranger, and you took me in: 36 Naked, and you clothed me: I was sick, and you visited me: I was in prison, and you came to me. 37 

Then shall the righteous answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we you an hungered, and fed you? or thirsty, and gave you drink? 38 When saw we you a stranger, and took you in? or naked, and clothed you? 39 Or when saw we you sick, or in prison, and came to you? 40 And the King shall answer and say to them, Truly I say to you, Inasmuch as you have done it to one of the least of these my brothers, you have done it to me. 41 Then shall he say also to them on the left hand, Depart from me, you cursed, into everlasting fire, prepared for the devil and his angels: 

It must be explained here that this everlasting fire first of all is symbolic. Secondly, it everlasting only so long as it takes to burn out all wood, hay and stubble that represents the sin within that is causing the unrighteousness.

42 For I was an hungered, and you gave me no meat: I was thirsty, and you gave me no drink: 43 I was a stranger, and you took me not in: naked, and you clothed me not: sick, and in prison, and you visited me not. 44 Then shall they also answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we you an hungered, or thirsty, or a stranger, or naked, or sick, or in prison, and did not minister to you? 45 Then shall he answer them, saying, Truly I say to you, Inasmuch as you did it not to one of the least of these, you did it not to me. 46 And these shall go away into everlasting punishment: but the righteous into life eternal.

This section of scripture should open our eyes and help us to see and realize what is important to Christ as we interact with other human beings. We can get all wrapped up in doing what we believe is doing good, while Christ may look upon it in an altogether different way. Lets look at another section of scripture as an example of that which I speak. Matthew 7: 21 

“Not everyone who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but only the one who does the will of my Father who is in heaven. 22 Many will say to me on that day, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name and in your name drive out demons and in your name perform many miracles?’ 23 Then I will tell them plainly, ‘I never knew you. Away from me, you evildoers!( Matthew 7:21-23 ) 

It then becomes important for us to know what the will of the Father in heaven is. Because it is only those who will be doing the will of His Father who will enter the kingdom heaven. 11 

Afterward the other virgins came also, saying, ‘Lord, lord, open to us.’ 12 But he answered, ‘Truly, I say to you, I do not know you.’( Matthew 25: 11-12 ) And why call you me, Lord, Lord, and do not the things which I say? ( Luke 6:46 )

We have to conclude here that these people doing what they had perceived to be doing good things, was not what Christ was saying. Was not what He was telling them to do, nor was it the will of the Father. This group found themselves in the exact same position as those in Matthew 25: 41 through verse 46. We may therefore think we are doing great things by driving out demons, and performing many miracles in the name of Christ or doing prophesy in His name, but we have missed the mark by failing to do as He has said to do. He tells us that He tells us the truth, but we will not believe Him. 

( John 8: 45 ) And because I tell you the truth, ye believe me not. He goes on here in John and tells us what the sin of the world is. ( John 16: 9 ) ( NLT ) The worlds sin is unbelief in me. Even though His words are as plain as the nose on our face, we still dig our rebellious heels in solid and refuse to believe Him. We still go our own way, believing as a deceived Christianity under the sway of Satan the devil leads us ever deeper into the Babylon of confusion. He is pointing out through the inspired word of God, where it is that those refusing to believe on His Son will find themselves. Take a good look here in 1 John. ( 1 John 5: 10 ) He that believeth on the Son of God hath the witness within himself: He that believeth not God hath made him a liar; because he believeth not the record that God gave of his Son. 

How can it possibly be made any plainer? Failing to believe on the Son of God will cause any individual doing so, in making God out to be a liar. While believing the inspired word of the Son of God, that individual has the witness within himself, no if, and or buts about it. But will you still refuse to believe? And the answer continues to show that yes you most probably will continue in your unbelief. Just as it has been recorded here in Hebrews. ( Hebrews 4:2 ) We have heard the same Good News that your ancestors heard. But the message didn't help those who heard it in the past because they didn't believe.

We may reason in our own mind and heart that this is talking about somebody else, and not me, I definitely believe in the word of God you might say. Well, two things enter in here for those who claim to know and to believe the word of God. First there is a giant difference in knowing and believing the word of God and in following after it. It is the same principle as, “the road to hell being paved with good intentions.” Once we know and understand the word of God it is of absolute no good what so ever, until we follow it. We might be able to preach and teach others, while missing out on the blessings of obedience. Those teaching the actual truth of God found only in His word, cannot and should not expect to be held up as great teachers. But instead should expect to be hated and looked down upon as same as Jesus Christ was. ( John 15:18 ) "If the world hates you, keep in mind that it hated me first. 

No one really wants to know the truth, people are happy in their disillusion, not having received the love of the truth. Here is what the word of God tells us about that in ( 2nd Thessalonians 2: 8 - 12 ) 

And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming: 2nd Thessalonians 2:9 Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders, 2nd Thessalonians 2:10 And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved. 2nd Thessalonians 2:11 And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: 2nd Thessalonians 2:12 That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.

Jesus Christ goes on and tells us what we should be looking forward to and what to expect as we teach His wonderful truth to others. ( Luke 21:17 ) And you shall be hated of all men for my name's sake. The message that Christ taught and that we follow after and teach it to others is not a popular message. ( Matthew 10:22 ) And you shall be hated of all men for my name's sake: but he that endures to the end shall be saved. Christianity around the world has become complacent and comfortable in their spiritual understanding as they continue wallowing around in the Babylon of confusion being taught and promoted by the God of this world. 

( 2nd Corinthians 4:4 ) 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. ( John 15:19 ) If you belonged to the world, it would love you as its own. As it is, you do not belong to the world, but I have chosen you out of the world. That is why the world hates you. Did you get that? When you teach the truth of God, the world hates you. We should not become dismayed and discouraged about it once we understand the words that Christ leaves us in ( John 15:18 ) "If the world hates you, keep in mind that it hated me first. ( Rev 2:26 ) We also need to remember the promise that Christ makes to us in, ( Revelation 2:26 ) To him who overcomes and does my will to the end, I will give authority over the nations--

We need to examine again ( John 15:19 ) quoted above. If you belonged to the world, it would love you as its own. As it is, you do not belong to the world, but I have chosen you out of the world. That is why the world hates you. I hope that didn’t go over your head, or that I am moving to fast for you here. The reason why we are hated is we have been chosen of Christ, out of this world. That is, some of us have been chosen out of this world. Many, even most are sitting tight still in the world. They hear the voice with their physical ears, they see the words with their physical eyes, They can read them and see them but they cannot comprehend with spiritual understanding. It goes right over their physical heads when God clearly and plainly tells us to come out of this world in ( Revelation 18:4 ) 

And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues. 

Somehow they reason ( with the help of Satan, the god of this world ) That this message is for someone else other than themselves. There is nothing about this worlds religion that is worth clinging to while separating ourselves from the true word of God that leads all men to immortal, spirit life. Exactly like that of our Father God and His Son Jesus Christ. We need to get this message of coming out of this world and its so called Christian religious system that has led this world so far away from the truth once delivered to the saints. There is not one single doctrine of truth being taught by the counterfeit Christian church remaining in the Babylon of confusion. And that my friends, my brothers and sisters, is most all of Christianity around this world.

There is so much wrong with the Babylon of confusion that it is hard to know where to begin. It is as Isaiah has it in ( Isaiah 53:6-8 ) 

6 All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned—every one—to his own way; and the Lord has laid on him ( Jesus Christ ) the iniquity of us all. 7 He was oppressed, and he was afflicted, yet he opened not his mouth; like a lamb that is led to the slaughter, and like a sheep that before its shearers is silent, so he opened not his mouth. 8 By oppression and judgment he was taken away; and as for his generation, who considered that he was cut off out of the land of the living, stricken for the transgression of my people? 

Christ suffered and died a horrible excruciatingly painful death that all of mankind could know for certain that their salvation was assured, Universal Salvation! Not even one lost, Christ would leave the ninety nine and go looking for the lost one. His Father God had given all things into His hands, and He would not lose any the Father had given Him. ( John 6:37 ) All that the Father gives me shall come to me; and him that comes to me I will in no wise cast out. Still most professing Christians are in unbelief of this most wonderful truth of God, making God to be a liar through disbelief. ( John 6:39 ) And this is the will of him who sent me, that I shall lose none of all that he has given me, but raise them up at the last day.

I have a hard time every time I read these words of truth, why it is that mankind cannot and will not accept or believe them. Although I know the reality is, that we cannot accept or understand it unless it is given to us by God. ( John 10:28 ) I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish; no one can snatch them out of my hand. Satan has so blinded the minds of those whom will not believe, that it will take an act of God to remove the scales from their eyes and unstop their ears to be able to grasp spiritual truth. ( John 17:2 ) For you granted him authority over all people that he might give eternal life to all those you have given him. ( Matthew 28:18 ) All power and authority has been given to Christ by His Father

There is no other power within all of the universe to even bother to consider, Christ has it all and will use it as His Father directs Him to use it, which is to save all of mankind and in fact all of creation which includes Satan and his demons. ( John 10:28 ) And I give to them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand. What part of, and they shall never perish, do you have trouble in understanding? ( John 10:29 ) My Father, which gave them me, is greater than all; and no man is able to pluck them out of my Father's hand. And again I might ask the question, what part of, “No man is able to pluck them out of my Fathers hand, is it that you’re having trouble with?

The failure for all of those professing to be Christians but still denying the true word of God concerning lacking the understand of Universal Salvation, seen here in Colossians and 2nd Corinthians is a sin of monumental proportions. (Colossians 1: 15-20) 15 The Son is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all creation. 16 For in him all things were created: things in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or powers or rulers or authorities; all things have been created through him and for him. 17 He is before all things, and in him all things hold together. 18 And he is the head of the body, the church; he is the beginning and the firstborn from among the dead, so that in everything he might have the supremacy. 19 For God was pleased to have all his fullness dwell in him, 20 and through him to reconcile to himself all things, whether things on earth or things in heaven, by making peace through his blood, shed on the cross. Colossians 1: 20

( 1 Corinthians 15: 22- 28 ) For as in Adam all die, so in Christ all will be made alive. ( The exact same all that die will all be made alive ) 23 But each in their own turn: Christ, the first fruits; then, when he comes, those who belong to him. 24 Then the end will come, when he hands over the kingdom to God the Father after he has destroyed all dominion, authority and power. 25 For he must reign until he has put all his enemies under his feet. 26 The last enemy to be destroyed is death. ( after death has been destroyed, the only thing left is life ) 27 For he “has put everything under his feet.” 

Now when it says that “everything” has been put under him, it is clear that this does not include God himself, who put everything under Christ. 28 When he has done this, then the Son himself will be made subject to him who put everything under him, so that God may be all in allNotice:  ( Not all in a few, not all in some, not all in many, but all in all of mankind and creation ) Our God tells us He is the same yesterday, today and forever, that He changes not. If we can determine how He was yesterday, how He felt about His people going after other gods and worshiping the idols of their heart, we’ll know and understand how He feels about it today.

23 Then Jehu and Jehonadab son of Rekab went into the temple of Baal. Jehu said to the servants of Baal, “Look around and see that no one who serves the Lord is here with you—only servants of Baal.” 24 So they went in to make sacrifices and burnt offerings. Now Jehu had posted eighty men outside with this warning: “If one of you lets any of the men I am placing in your hands escape, it will be your life for his life.” 25 As soon as Jehu had finished making the burnt offering, he ordered the guards and officers: “Go in and kill them; let no one escape.” So they cut them down with the sword. The guards and officers threw the bodies out and then entered the inner shrine of the temple of Baal. 26 They brought the sacred stone out of the temple of Baal and burned it. 27 They demolished the sacred stone of Baal ( An Obelisk ) and tore down the temple of Baal, and people have used it for a latrine to this day. Kings 14;23 They also set up for themselves high places, sacred stones and Asherah poles on every high hill and under every spreading tree.

Ezekiel 20:28 When I brought them into the land I had sworn to give them and they saw any high hill or any leafy tree, there they offered their sacrifices, made offerings that provoked me to anger, presented their fragrant incense and poured out their drink offerings. ( The people of Israel, Gods own people, worshiped trees. Trees were one idol of their heart. They still as Christians of the Babylon of confusion bring them into their homes, decorate them with silver and gold ornaments. Their gods that cannot stand but must be moved about. )

Hosea 10:1 Israel was a spreading vine; he brought forth fruit for himself. As his fruit increased, he built more altars; as his land prospered, he adorned his sacred stones.

2 Kings 17:19 and even Judah did not keep the commands of the LORD their God. They followed the practices Israel had introduced.

Isaiah 57:5 You burn with lust among the oaks and under every spreading tree; you sacrifice your children in the ravines and under the overhanging crags. ( The people of Israel burned their own children alive to their sun god Saturn. ) Afterward, profaning the name of Christ by hooking His name to the celebration and calling it Christmas.

Jeremiah 2:20 "Long ago you broke off your yoke and tore off your bonds; you said, 'I will not serve you!' Indeed, on every high hill and under every spreading tree you lay down as a prostitute.

Ezekiel 6:13 And they will know that I am the LORD, when their people lie slain among their idols around their altars, on every high hill and on all the mountaintops, under every spreading tree and every leafy oak--places where they offered fragrant incense to all their idols.

Ezekiel 16:24 you built a mound for yourself and made a lofty shrine in every public square.

2 Kings 17:10 They set up sacred stones and Asherah poles on every high hill and under every spreading tree. ( Asherah poles were carved wood and may have also included the obelisks that they worshipped. Obelisks were phallic worship, the worship of the male penis. They worshipped both the male and female reproductive organs as another idol of their hearts.)

2 Kings 17:16 They forsook all the commands of the LORD their God and made for themselves two idols cast in the shape of calves, and an Asherah pole. They bowed down to all the starry hosts, and they worshiped Baal. ( The sun god )

1 Kings 14:15 And the LORD will strike Israel, so that it will be like a reed swaying in the water. He will uproot Israel from this good land that he gave to their forefathers and scatter them beyond the River, because they provoked the LORD to anger by making Asherah poles.

1 Kings 15:12 He expelled the male shrine prostitutes from the land and got rid of all the idols his fathers had made.

1 Kings 20:23 Meanwhile, the officials of the king of Aram advised him, "Their gods are gods of the hills. That is why they were too strong for us. But if we fight them on the plains, surely we will be stronger than they.

2 Kings 10:26 They brought the sacred stone out of the temple of Baal and burned it.

The Goddess Ishtar "The Light-bringer"

Babylonian High-Mother-Goddess.Like Inanna, she is the goddess of fertility, love and war.Her cult was the most important one in ancient Babylon and Ishtar became under various names the most important Goddessof the Near-East and Western Asia.

General Article about Ishtar.  The origin of this babylonian-assyrian main goddess was a semitian vegetation- and moon goddess with lower influence, but when these tribes arrived at the land of the sumerian kingdom, her cult reached the sumerian capital Uruk. The sumerian people identified Ishtar easily with their own goddess Inanna. After some time Ishtar became in the second millenium the highest and widest worshipped goddess of the Babylonians. The myths of Inanna became the myths of Ishtar: 

Myths: see Gilgamesh and Inanna's Descent into the Underworld Ishtars reign was not depending on a male consort, she reigned absolute on her own and united in her all the aspects of femininity. Her position in the Babylonian pantheon was the highest, but her family relations are a bit confusing: Ishtar was daughter of the moon goddess Ningal and her consort Nanna (akk. Sin), who were the Citygods of Uruk. In other traditions she appears to be the daughter of the sky god Anu, later she also became his wife. She was also the sister of the sun god Utu/Marduk and the underworld goddess Ereschkigal ("Mistress of the great under"). She appeared in person wearing a zodiac belt together with hunting dogs like Diana or riding on a lion, her holy animal. She was the Queen of heaven (Scharrat Schame) and the mother, who had born the world and still remained a virgin.

Her consort or husband was Tammuz ( sum.: Dumuzi), river god of Euphrates and Tigris, who was meanwhile also her son and her brother. When the world began, Tammuz (faithful son) came together with Ishtar in the world. She bore him, she made love with him and she remained a virgin. When Tammuz died in the summer and all vegetation died with him, Ishtar was looking for him all over the world. She finally found him in the underworld and brought him back to life (see Celtic believe). Tammuz was reborn and the vegetation could flourish again. Then the ritual-festival of the "Holy Marriage" was celebrated at the time of the autumn equinox, when in the Near-East the first rain fell again.
Forthe assyrian people she was mainly a war goddess (Lioness of the battle), but also the love and the sexual life belonged to her realm of influence. Moreover she was the Goddess of justice and healing.

Besides these titles there is a number of titles of the goddess Ishtar that can easily be realized as former territorial goddesses - She assimilated into herself a number of 'lesser' deities. In the case of Ishtar this is well documented and traceable, and the following alphabetical listing will show a goddess who should perhaps be called 'Ishtar Incorporated'.

Absusu A Sumerian title for Ishtar in her role as a promiscuous goddess.  Abtagigi "She Who Sends Messages of Desire"; a Sumerian title used for Ishtar as patroness of sacramental promiscuity and/or Sacred Prostitution  Agasaya A Semitic goddess of war called 'the Shrieker' she was absorbed into the concept of Ishtar, who was also known as goddess of battles.  Anatha Baetyl A planetary goddess (Venus) known in Egypt and among the Hebrews, later absorbed into Ishtar; part of a trinity with males.  

Anatu In early Mesopotamia she was known as Ishtar's mother (with alternative names such as Antu, Antum); the ruler of both Earth and Heaven. Later in time she became absorbed and merged into the worship of her daughter.  Anunit or Anunitu was the patron-goddess of the city of Akkad and associated with Venus as evening star; daughter/sister of the moon-god Sin. She became - in the course of time - absorbed into the great figure of Ishtar who also took over her role as ruler of the city.  Asakhira Early Semitic goddess of promiscuity; merged into Ishtar  Dilbah Ishtar as Venus the morning-star and goddess of war and hunting  Gumshea.

Mesopotamian goddess of vegetation and fertility who was assimilated into Ishtar   Hanata A name for Ishtar as warrior-deity  Har A name of Ishtar that led to the title Harine  Irnini Originally a patroness or guardian-deity of the Lebanese cedar-mountains she later became absorbed into Ishtar  Kilili The goddess Ishtar as symbol of the promiscuous and independent woman - the ancient idea of the virgin - whose wanton behavior inspires both excitement and a tremendous anxiety in many of those who desire her.  Nanab 'Queen'; an old Babylonian title used for Ishtar at the cities of Lagash and Ninevah; it may refer back to a global form of Inanna from which Ishtar has developed.  

Nin Si Anna Ishtar as the all-seeing 'Lady Eye of Heaven'  Ninkasi Sumerian goddess of Wine, 'Lady Horn-Face', who became 'incorporated' into Ishtar  Ninkharak A dog-headed goddess of healing who was assimilated into Ishtar   Nintur or Nintu Sentu An ancient goddess of Shirpurla who became merged into Ishtar; the names meaning 'Lady of the Womb' and 'Lady Life-Giver'.  Sarbanda' Queen of the bow', a goddess of the hunt or of war who was venerated at the city of Erech; later she became assimilated into Ishtar. Sharrat Shame  Ishtar as 'Queen of Heaven'  =Siduri (Shiduri, Shidurri) Ishtar in her guise as innkeeper and wine-maker in the story of the hero Gilgamesh  Ulsiga A title of reverence meaning 'Ishtar of Heaven and Earth'  Zanaru A title of Ishtar meaning 'Lady of the Lands'Zib Ishtar as Venus the evening-star and goddess of love

I list all of these names down and there are many more that have been attached to Ishtar, a fertility goddess and a temple prostitute among other things, whom later was pawned off as our present day pagan celebration of Easter. Again profaning the name of Jesus Christ by attaching it to this rank pagan festival that make their drawing card a fuzzy little rabbit that lays colored eggs. Transferring our precious little children’s mind away from Christ and unto things altogether against the truth of God and the God ordained Passover season. Ishtar can be found in the word of God by the name of Diana of the Ephesians. It shows the trouble it caused Paul in preaching the truth of God there. In today’s world where I live in Northern Michigan where multiple millions of dollars are made by selling the idol of their hearts to Christians and others. The Christmas Tree, the idol that cannot walk but must be carried. If my preaching and teaching begin to dig into their profits, I can only guess about what it might be that would happen to me. Friends, neighbors and even Christian brothers and sisters get ugly real quick when one begins to knock the nose off one of their idols of the heart. Read here in Acts 19 of the trouble that it caused Paul.

24 A silversmith named Demetrius, who made silver shrines of Artemis, ( Diana ) brought in a lot of business for the craftsmen there. 25 He called them together, along with the workers in related trades, and said: “You know, my friends, that we receive a good income from this business. 26 And you see and hear how this fellow Paul has convinced and led astray large numbers of people here in Ephesus and in practically the whole province of Asia. He says that gods made by human hands are no gods at all. 27 There is danger not only that our trade will lose its good name, but also that the temple of the great goddess Artemis will be discredited; and the goddess herself, who is worshiped throughout the province of Asia and the world, will be robbed of her divine majesty.” 28 When they heard this, they were furious and began shouting: “Great is Artemis of the Ephesians!” 29 Soon the whole city was in an uproar. 

The people seized Gaius and Aristarchus, Paul’s traveling companions from Macedonia, and all of them rushed into the theater together. 30 Paul wanted to appear before the crowd, but the disciples would not let him. 31 Even some of the officials of the province, friends of Paul, sent him a message begging him not to venture into the theater. 32 The assembly was in confusion: Some were shouting one thing, some another. Most of the people did not even know why they were there. 33 The Jews in the crowd pushed Alexander to the front, and they shouted instructions to him. He motioned for silence in order to make a defense before the people. 34 But when they realized he was a Jew, they all shouted in unison for about two hours: “Great is Artemis ( Diana ) of the Ephesians!” ( Acts 19: 24 - 34 ) ( NIV )

Notice here what is being said about this corrupt goddess so many hundreds of years ago. There is danger not only that our trade will lose its good name, but also that the temple of the great goddess Artemis ( Diana ) will be discredited; and the goddess herself, who is worshiped throughout the province of Asia and the world, will be robbed of her divine majesty.” Do you think she has any influence on anyone yet today? What would you say if I told you she was still alive and well and spreading her same corrupt message of old to our own people. Where she is right out in the open for all to see, billions upon billions will see her here in our own homes and around the world on a regular, sustained basis. 

They need not have been worried in Paul’s day, she is more visible and of greater influence than ever before. Her philosophy of promiscuity, lewdness, and liberty from God, has been and is being spread all across our nation and around the world. There is hardly a day that passes that you will not see her on your own television screen. She is an icon almost beyond equal, I would venture to say it would be hard to find even a school child that would not recognize her. That is how prevalent and indelible her image has been engraved upon our minds, and in our hearts, without us ever knowing it. That is how subtle and powerful that Satan is in conjunction with the secret sect of Free Masonry along with the open idolatry of the Catholic church. They have installed the greatest pagan influence the world has ever known right on our front door step. “ Lady Liberty” The statue of Liberty, stands tall for all to see in New York harbor.

Now before anyone may decide to tar and feather me and ride me out of town on a rail for Catholic bashing, let me be real clear here. Just a glance into the book of Revelation will expose who the mother of harlots is, but will as well point out, almost the same teaching and belief system coming from all of her daughters. This title was written on her forehead: MYSTERY BABYLON THE GREAT THE MOTHER OF PROSTITUTES AND OF THE ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH. ( Revelation 17:5 ) Which aptly describes one and all, the Catholic church and all of her daughter prostitutes, all the splinter groups of her Protestant daughters. The reported over 40,000 churches around the world. 15 Then the angel said to me, “The waters you saw, where the prostitute sits, are peoples, multitudes, nations and languages. 16 The beast and the ten horns you saw will hate the prostitute. They will bring her to ruin and leave her naked; they will eat her flesh and burn her with fire. 17 For God has put it into their hearts to accomplish his purpose by agreeing to hand over to the beast their royal authority, until God’s words are fulfilled. ( Revelation 17: 15 -17 ) 

The one thing to notice here is that, it is God whom is the ultimate source and power that controls everything and all of the time. In other words my friends, my brothers and sisters in Christ. It is all under the careful and watchful eye of Jesus Christ, whom it is that will bring it all finally to a foregone, planned out successful conclusion. Where death will have been destroyed and the only thing left is immortal, spirit life for all. Universal Salvation. For all to have life as God and Christ have life.

With that being said, it doesn’t mean we turn our minds over to Satan and his ministers whom appear as angels of light. Sitting in the worlds counterfeit Christian churches, and polluting the word of God. The seducing spirits that continue leading us down the pathway of the rank paganism of antiquity. Believing and following after that which has been introduced and installed into our society by a religious combination of the Babylon of confusion, mixed in with Free Masonry that has secretly been calling the shots behind the scenes all along. There is not again as I have said before, not even one true and believable doctrine coming from any one of them. It is all hocus pocus, gobble gook being dispersed and fed to a docile group of programmed individuals. Nursing as it were at the bosom of paganism, sucking at the trough of Satanism. 

Not having received the love of the truth, there by having God send strong delusion upon them, that they should believe a lie. ( 11 Thessalonians 2:11 ) Is “Lady Liberty” the only past and present pagan influence that we need to be concerned about as the people of God? The only evil influence hidden in plain sight? It has been said, “If you want to hide a tree, plant it in the forest.” I took the time a few pages back to list down many scriptures indicating the mind of God on idolatry. His position on worship drawn away from Himself. We looked at among other things, obelisk’s, otherwise known as phallic worship. The adoration and worship of the male penis. Obelisk translated definition, means “Baal’s Staff”. One only has to look in their own local cemetery to realize how many obelisk grave markers are hidden there in plain sight.

There is even a more subtle placement of the obelisk hidden in plain sight that you most probably are not aware of even though you pass by them every single day. Again it is not by any accident that they are all placed there as some sort of badge of glory, for all to see. I live in a rural area, being sparsely populated and dotted with small villages every five, ten or twenty miles apart. I live out in the country next to a big farm. Yet I have only to drive a very few miles in any direction to see my first obelisk. And I am quite certain that applies to most of you as well. I just drove my wife into the small village we live in for some medication she needed. Within a few hundred feet we saw four obelisk’s. 

Fastened down on the roofs of the counterfeit Christian churches of the Babylon of confusion. They may refer to them as steeples, spires, the finger of God or by any other name, but in reality they are plain and simply an obelisk aimed at phallic worship, harkening back to worshipping in the groves talked about earlier, that are an abomination to our Great Almighty God. In the building of any new church, I would venture to say, the very first thing to be discussed would be the size and majesty of the obelisk on the roof top. Will it be grand enough to match the others in the area? Will it be noticed and revered by all? What are we able to afford putting into the obelisk ( steeple )? It will surely identify us as the people of God.

The Free Mason, Catholic, and Satanic obsession with sexual promiscuity shows up as well in other areas of church buildings. Notice if you will at the bigger and grander old church buildings. See how their entryways and window shapes quite regularly mirror the female vulva, with the curved part coming together at the top in a half oval fashion. I have personally seen older Catholic bibles that have within its pages, a diagram of a woman’s reproduction organs laid out to correspond with the inside of the church. Entering the church through the vulva, on through the birth canal into the worship area, with all other organs playing their own part. 

So it is not by any accident that Ishtar, Semiramis, Diana of the Ephesians or by whatever other name she may be known and recognized by, has maintained the world wide notoriety, influence and stature that she has within our sexually perverted world society. If you are up for another culture shock, I challenge you to Google the word Sheela Na Gig. It is another part of church history. Here is a short description of what you should expect to find. In 1676, two Irish Church regulations ordered the burning of obscene carvings of naked women and, even earlier in 1631, provincial statutes for Tuam, Co. Galway, ordered parish priests to hide away such carvings and 'take note of where they were hidden.'

Although the church regulations don't use the term, it is very possible that the figures referred to were those known today as sheela-na-gigs. The order to 'burn' them suggests that some were made from combustible material. I will leave this for you to explore if you so wish to. I believe we need to be informed, get our self righteous head out of where it should not be. Maybe then we will begin learning where we are at today in spiritual understanding, and why.

It doesn’t stop here, our naïve gullibility that everything is just at it seems, continues on. We do error in our belief that there are no evil underworld forces working behind the scenes. Most by this time reading here would be contemplating calling out the boys in the white suits. Having me sent away to rest and recuperate in some psyche ward. Offering there support and pity for my wife having to deal with old crazy. Obviously within his final stages of dementia or the advanced stages of Alzheimer’s disease. While I do understand that I am just scratching the surface here, 

I do want to give you enough to whet your appetite and maybe cause you to go on further and explore for yourself that which lurks below the surface and behind the scenes. Lets move a few miles down the east coast of our nation now and zero in on something that should be of great interest to us all. Down to Washing D.C. where our nations capitol is, where our nation is being run from. The first thing that an aware person will notice that can be seen from many miles away, is the biggest obelisk in the world. It is 555 feet high with the base measurements being 55 feet and six inches wide and the length being 55 feet and six inches long. Is it any coincidence when you add these figures together, the total is 666? Especially when we realize it was the secret order of the Free Masons and Catholic influence that brought it all about.

Our first president, George Washington was a Free Mason himself. There are pictures of him in full Free Mason dress. Our capitol city has been laid out to mirror Vatican City, with all of the occult vestiges that can be packed together there. I challenge you to Google: The US Capitol, a mirror of Vatican City. You will be amazed at what you find. You will be taken through a picture tour of both Washington D.C. and Vatican City. To see the unmistaken similarities that had to be adhered to exactly to achieve this mirror image. You will see that the whole city of Washington D.C. in precise order that displays obvious pentagrams and pentagons. The five pointed star along with the five sided building it depicts on its outside dimensions are both Satanic symbols. 

The Pentagon that houses our military might, is the largest floor area building in the world. What does all of this mean anyway? That is one of the things we should want to know and find out about. One thing is for absolute and for certain, God has either allowed it to happen this way, or He is causing it to happen this way. Nothing anywhere ever happens outside or beyond the authority and power of Jesus Christ. Do you suppose that God may be testing His people? Putting us all to a test to determine whom it is that may or may not be fit to rule with Him during the millennium? Whom it is that will believe Him, and whom it is that will refuse to believe Him? I do not want to leave you with any unanswered questions about my position here. In anticipation of what you may want to know about me.

Do I believe that the Catholic church is filled with the people of God? Yes! I most certainly do. Do I think all of the Protestant Christian splinter groups are the people of God? Yes! I most certainly do. Do I feel more lofty or above anyone else? No! I do not. I feel I have been given spiritual knowledge from God beyond what some others have been given, that’s all. Since I believe that Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior is exactly who He claims to be, the Savior of all creation. Consequently, I believe all of the Catholics will be saved, all of the Protestants and their splinter groups will be saved, all of the pagans are going to be saved, and all of the worst of the worst are going to be saved. 

No one to be lost, destroyed or left to burn alive in a raging, burning hell forever. God is reproducing Himself in mankind and Christ is not allowed to save even one less than all. That makes me somewhat different than others that might preach and teach to you in an effort to get you saved. I am not teaching you anything to save you, Jesus Christ has already done it for all of us. There is nothing we can do, need to do or should do. It is a done deal! When Christ announced, “It is finished” and gave up His spirit, it took absolute and complete care of all things. Our salvation is secure, every man, woman and child that has ever lived, that now lives or ever will live, end of story. Everyone however is not going to be saved at the same time, and that is what I want to talk about next.

When Christ returns to begin His one thousand year rule right here on earth, The first fruits that He has set aside as His own elect, the few out of the many, those that will rule with Him during that thousand years, will be resurrected incorruptible as immortal, spirit beings. They will help rule physical people still being born and living yet on earth. It talks about it here in Isaiah, the futility of relying on Egypt, ( symbolic of sin ). And your ears shall hear a word behind you, saying, This is the way, walk you in it, when you turn to the right hand, and when you turn to the left. ( Isaiah 30:21 ) The idols of your heart will be removed, tossed aside and done away with like a used Kotex. Then you will defile your idols overlaid with silver and your images covered with gold; you will throw them away like a menstrual cloth and say to them, "Away with you!" ( Isaiah 30:22 ) ( NIV ) 

After this one thousand year reign of Christ on earth, then comes the 2nd resurrection also known as the great white throne judgment. The 2nd resurrection is where everyone who has ever lived from Adam and Eve onward will be resurrected to go into the great white throne judgment. This group will be far and away the most massive number of people ever to be assembled upon the face of the earth. All who have ever lived, minus those few having been resurrected a thousand years earlier in the first resurrection. They too however will have been resurrected as spirit beings, but having to face the great white throne judgment. Which when fully understood has a good outcome. My soul yearns for you in the night; in the morning my spirit longs for you. When your judgments come upon the earth, the people of the world learn righteousness. ( Isaiah 26:9 )

This is where Satan and his ministers operating in the Babylon of confusion within the counterfeit Christian church have had a field day in teaching their deception to all of mankind. Their hell hoax, that God will torment and torture most all of those made in His image for all of eternity, or annihilate and do away with them altogether. This has to be one of Satan’s biggest triumphs over the naïve and gullible mind of man. To actually get the entire Christian world to believe such ungodly slop. They will quote scripture to verify and prove it to be the truth, not understanding the difference between metaphors, symbolism, parables or figurative speech.

Those being resurrected in the 2nd resurrection will be thrown into the “Lake of Fire”. The symbolic lake of fire, not a literal lake of fire. To be purged of all unrighteousness, having had all sin burned out of them symbolically. Such as we see here in 1 Corinthians. If any man's work shall be burned, he shall suffer loss: but he himself shall be saved; yet so as by fire. ( 1 Corinthians 3:15 ) Did you make note of how much this differs from what you have been taught? A mans work shall be burned, but he himself shall be saved. How shall he be saved? As by fire! My friends, my brothers and sisters, it is the fire of God that saves, not destroys mankind. Now let me tell you the interesting part of this fire of God, and where it will come from. Our God is a consuming fire. ( Hebrews 12:29 ) Get ready for another truth that you have never heard in your life.

The symbolic fire that those coming from the 2nd resurrection will be tossed into, and will be  subjected to, and will be judged and chastened by, will be the elect of God that had just came through the millennium after ruling with Christ for a thousand years. They will have had at that point a thousand years ruling with and under Jesus Christ, to now serve as the cleansing force of God that will through chastening, guidance and direction, be instrumental in removing all wood, hay and stubble ( representing sin and unrighteousness ) out of those from the second resurrection. All according to how their lives had been lived. Some with lesser degrees of sin against God and man will be beaten with few stripes, others that have been terrors to all, may have to be beaten with many stripes before being able to see the wonderful light of the truth of God. 

And that servant, which knew his lord's will, and prepared not himself, neither did according to his will, shall be beaten with many stripes. ( Luke 12:47 ) All of this symbolic, none of it literal. The stripes that are being administered against the offender, will all be self inflicted by the guilty ones own mind and heart. Allowing them to be reflecting back upon their lifestyles, their integrity or lack of it, their treatment of others, their misuse of what God had given them, bringing to account in themselves, of just how unworthy we all are. For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord. ( Romans 6:23 ) Having worked and earned the penalty of death, and yet God sent His only begotten Son to die a horrible and painful death in our place. He told us all, that He was the Savior of the world, all of mankind and all of creation, yet most would not, and still today, will not believe Him. It will eventually be at their own peril to any expecting to be in the elect of God.It will not be. 

To more fully understand this truth in a much greater detailed accounting, we have prepared a link that should be read by every serious Christian on this earth. Mike Vinson lays it all out in an easy way to understand and grasp a long hidden truth. He has dug deeper into the Word of God, to bring this wonderful truth free! To all that hunger and thirst to know God and Jesus Christ more intimately. What is the white throne judgment We of this website are of a like mind, freely we have received, freely we should give. We are not trying to build a mega church with walls of brick and mortar, we are not trying to draw a following after ourselves. We are trying the best that we know how to do it, to inform any and all that visit our website, of the lost and long forgotten truth of God that has been missing in Christianity for so long a time. 

We have no personal gain as our goal, with the exception of how it may apply to the pressing forward for the prize of the high calling that the Apostle talked about. I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus. ( Philippians 3:14 ) Paul was concerned himself about the prize ( being in the chosen few, the elect ) of the high calling. No, I beat my body and make it my slave so that after I have preached to others, I myself will not be disqualified for the prize . ( 1 Corinthians 9:27 ) 

We too find ourselves being blessed of God, of having His truth revealed to us, while so many others have not received the God given ability to understand. We are members of the church that Christ is building here on earth. He is in me and I am in Him. Where ever two or three meet in His name, He is in the midst of them, whether in person, on the phone or in cyber space. We do not depend upon Satan’s ministers that appear as angels of light, to twist and to confuse our minds. The Holy Spirit has promised to lead us into all truth, and we believe Him. But you have received the Holy Spirit, and he lives within you, so you don't need anyone to teach you what is true. For the Spirit teaches you everything you need to know, and what he teaches is true--it is not a lie. So just as he has taught you, remain in fellowship with Christ. ( 1 John 2:27 )

We are back from where we started now, can we worship God in vain? The answer to that question has already been answered by Jesus Christ, our brother, our High Priest and our Savior. And not only our Savior, but the Savior of all creation. He tells us we worship Him in vain when we teach for doctrine the commandments of men. But in vain they do worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men. ( Matthew 15:9 ) They worship me in vain; their teachings are but rules taught by men.' ( Mark 7:7 ) We must now ask ourselves, what are the doctrines that a deceived Christianity under the sway of Satan the devil and his ministers appearing as angels of light are teaching in their churches around the world? What are their teachings that are but rules taught by men? I will start with the most grievous and blatant lies that have been crammed down the throats of a docile and naïve Christianity that have not been given the love of the truth and for that cause God has sent them strong delusion that they should believe a lie. 

And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved. And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: ( 11 Thessalonians 2: 10 - 11 ) 

The two most ungodly lies told and then believed by the people of God around the world, are the two that appropriate the name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ and attach it to rank and rotten pagan celebrations that among other things, burned their own little children alive in sacrifice to their god Saturn. Then later on attach the name of Christ to it and call it Christmas. A celebration called Saturnalia, where all sorts of revelry, drunkenness‘, lawlessness, debauchery, deviltry and even murder took place. Instead of judging and condemning me for breaking the nose off one of your idols, you would be better served to research this out for yourself. I am well aware of the words of Christ. And you shall be hated of all men for my name's sake: but he that endures to the end shall be saved. ( Matthew 10:22 )

Nearly on the same level of deception and equally diabolical is the second one. Again, the same thing, it worked so good on Christmas. Nearly all were deceived, all were happy and content to just cut loose and celebrate anything that gave them freedom from the real thing, which was the Passover season that God had set apart and ordained it to be celebrated in a distinct and certain way. In remembrance of the death angel passing over all of the children of Israel, while killing all the first born of the Egyptians. God causing the heart of Pharaoh to harden again and again until he finally let the children of Israel leave his country. Loosed them from four hundred years of slavery. Not only to leave but to leave it with a high hand, after having the Egyptians giving them all sorts of jewelry and fine things, just to get them out of their land. 

After God had sent plague after plague upon them. A time and a season that rightly so had the name of God attached to it in bringing all of Israel out of slavery. Israel being His special people, as God personally lead them out through the Red Sea, while drowning all of the forces of Pharaoh in the Red Sea that closed in on top of them that chased after the children of Israel. Then along comes the greatest evil influence the world has ever known, in the person of the pagan goddess known by so many different names that I have already listed some down earlier. Semiramis, Diana of the Ephesians, Ishtar, Artemis and many more. The temple prostitute wife/mother of Tammuz spoken of in Ezekiel. 

Then he brought me to the door of the gate of the LORD'S house which was toward the north; and, behold, there sat women weeping for Tammuz. ( Ezekiel 8:14 )

This section of scripture indicates how the people of God turn their collective backs on Him to go after other false pagan gods that have no power at all. There is all kinds of information on this goddess Ishtar, Diana of the Ephesians, Semiramis and many more ( all the same one ) and her son/husband Tammuz, on the internet. I recommend that you peruse through some of it. You’ll see where she is the one mainly responsible for polluting the Passover season and bringing forth the pagan Easter in its place. 

Then said he unto me, Hast thou seen this, O son of man? turn thee yet again, and thou shalt see greater abominations than these. 

Notice here below, what may be the first recorded Easter sunrise service ever, as they turned their backs on the temple of the Lord and their faces toward the east and they worshiped the sun. And he brought me into the inner court of the LORD's house, and, behold, at the door of the temple of the LORD, between the porch and the altar, were about five and twenty men, with their backs toward the temple of the LORD, and their faces toward the east; and they worshiped the sun toward the east. ( Ezekiel 8:15 - 16 ) 

All of Christianity whose comfort zone requires them to remain in the Babylon of confusion, digging their collective heels in solid and refusing to follow the commandment of God in Revelation, to come out of her my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues. ( Revelation 18:4 ) No matter how much good they think they have done. We have cast out demons in your name, we have healed the sick, we have fed the poor, we have prophesied in your name etc. 

But because they have not believed Jesus Christ to be who He claimed to be, the Savior of all mankind. Need to prepare themselves to hear Christ say these words. And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity. ( Matthew 7:23 ) When once the Master of the house is risen up, and has shut the door, and you begin to stand outside, and to knock at the door, saying, Lord, Lord, open unto us; and he shall answer and say unto you, I know not where you come from: ( Luke 13:25 ) At this point in time it will have been to late to begin believing that Christ is whom He claimed to be.

"But he will reply, 'I don't know you or where you come from. Away from me, all you evildoers! ( Luke 13:27 )

We have seen just two so far of the seasons that Christianity, the Babylon of confusion have profaned the name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ by attaching it to false pagan times and seasons. An abomination to God that He will bring down with a crash and to a screeching halt at some future point in time. Just as it has been recorded in the old covenant that we covered earlier. Where their idols of their hearts were burned up and destroyed. Where their obelisks that represented “Baals Staff” or the male penis as phallic worship. It tells us they grinded them into dust. I wonder how big a pile of dust the Washington Monument, the biggest obelisk (penis representation) in the world would make? 

Or “Lady Liberty” the statue of liberty, a replica of the most influential pagan goddess of sexual immorality the world to date has ever known. Liberty from all except self rule. Liberty to exercise and promote promiscuity of every kind. Liberty for women to lust sexually after other women, men to lust sexually after other men. Liberty for men to marry men, women to marry women, sexual union between them shown as some great badge of glory. Each being more liberated than the next one, with an everything goes attitude. Raising up kids to follow after their immoral, indecent practice of filth and degenerate behavior. I don’t care what Oprah Winfrey, Dr. Phil, Mickey Mouse, Donald Duck, Dagwood Bumstead or the Lone Ranger and Tonto have to say about it either. The only authority about it within the universe is the Word of God.

"Do not practice homosexuality, having sex with another man as with a woman. It is a detestable sin.( Leviticus 18:22 ) Even the thought of it makes a normal person want to start puking. In the same way the men also abandoned natural relations with women and were inflamed with lust for one another. Men committed indecent acts with other men, and received in themselves the due penalty for their perversion. ( Romans 1:27 ) 

There was then, is now and always will be due penalty for perversions. "'If a man lies with a man as one lies with a woman, both of them have done what is detestable. They must be put to death; their blood will be on their own heads. ( Lev 20:13 ) This is some pretty severe penalty from a God that is the same yesterday, today and forever. But allowing for the fact that Christ has paid the penalty for all sin, nothing will prevent man or woman from being saved and belonging in the kingdom of God. 

Homosexuality is one more sin among many others that requires repentance, all will be saved. But each in their own turn as explained earlier. Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshiped and served the creature more than the creator, who is blessed forever. Amen. For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature: ( Romans 1: 25-26 ) OK! So I got off the track a little bit, now I will make up some time by listing down as many false teachings and false doctrines of a counterfeit Christianity that comes to my mind.

The hell hoax:  Teaching that any will roast in hell forever. Bogus, a blatant lie.

Man is a free moral agent:  That man has a free will apart and separate from God.   Bogus, a blatant lie. Christ Himself didn’t have free will. He could do only which He saw His Father do. Without Christ we can do nothing of ourselves.

The Trinity:That God, Christ and the Holy Spirit are a closed trinity.   Bogus, Another blatant lie. God is a family, open to all of mankind.

The Rapture:   Bogus.  A blatant lie! Another Christian hoax from the Babylon of confusion.

That man has an immortal soul:   Bogus , a blatant lie from the Babylon of confusion.

Halloween:  Being taught as a Christian observance. Bogus, a purely evil and satanic celebration of devil worship and destruction of property. Teaching it on to our youth in perpetuation of deception.

Ash Wednesday: Bogus,   Where’s the scriptural truth to support it?

Lent: Bogus,   Again where’s the scriptural truth to support it?

Purgatory: Bogus,  Not a lick of truth in it at all, just more hocus pocus religion to come out of. 

Maundy Thursday:  Bogus,  Show it to me in the bible.

Eating fish on Fridays:   Bogus,   A Catholic practice until recently to honor Dagon, their half man half fish god. ( Ever notice the fish head cap the Pope wears? )

Heaven:  Taught as a geographical location where all good Christians go to after death. To drink pink lemonade and float around on a cloud. Bogus, A blatant lie of monumental proportions. We die, our spirit returns to God who gave it, we are either resurrected in the first resurrection or the second one. And in due time after being purged of all sin and unrighteousness, to belong for all eternity in the kingdom of God.

Satan:   That somehow Satan managed to morph himself into the adversary to mankind that he now is. Doing an end run around poor old God, upstaging Him and now winning the battle against God for souls. Super Bogus: a lie so utterly stupid that it makes me want to cry, to think that my brothers and sisters in Christ around this world can spend their whole lives believing this slop coming from the table of demons.

The hail Mary the mother of God chant:  Another idol of the heart, to exclude Christ and supposedly go to His mother whom has been dead for a couple thousand years, is an insult to Christ. You might just as well go outside and spit against the wind. Mary, the mother of Jesus died and at that moment just like everyone else her spirit returned back to God who had given it. To be absorbed back into God until resurrection day when she will be resurrected incorruptible like everyone else. Mary has no conscience thought whatever at this moment in time. Whatever your hand finds to do, do it with all your might, for in the grave, where you are going, there is neither working nor planning nor knowledge nor wisdom. ( Ecc. 9:10 )

The infallibility of the Pope:  The pope is set up by Catholic theology to be the absolute power on earth. He is referred to as the Vicar of Christ in Catholic theology. Meaning in place of, he takes over the roll of high priest on earth, believing himself to be unable to make mistakes, and teaching it on to the faithful. All of this is HOG WASH 101... Bogus! Double Bogus! Christ is our one and only high priest after the order of Melchizedek. The pope is no more infallible than anyone else. In fact hooking himself and the church that he is head of with all of the pagan idols surrounding him at Vatican City, Makes him even more fallible than most. For example I have a picture of Pope John Paul 11, at WORLD Youth Day 2000, wearing a crimson and gold stole which bears the symbols of Baal / Shamash within an eight-pointed star of Ishtar. Along with that the obelisk, an object of phallic worship, that is the center piece at Vatican City. Infallibility! Not by any means.

The Rosary Beads:                   How To Pray The Rosary - ( from the web )

The purpose of the Rosary is to help keep in memory certain principal events or mysteries ( Why not just read the bible? ) in the history of our salvation, and to thank and praise God for them. There are twenty mysteries reflected upon in the Rosary, and these are divided into the five JOYFUL MYSTERIES, the five LUMINOUS MYSTERIES, the fiveSORROWFUL MYSTERIES, and the five GLORIOUS MYSTERIES.

After the Rosary:   HAIL, HOLY QUEEN,  Mother of Mercy, our life, our sweetness and our hope! To thee do we cry, poor banished children of Eve; to thee do we send up our sighs, mourning and weeping in this vale of tears. Turn then, most gracious advocate, thine eyes of mercy toward us, and after this our exile, show unto us the blessed fruit of thy womb, Jesus. O clement, O loving, O sweet Virgin Mary!  V. Pray for us, O Holy Mother of God.  R. That we may be made worthy of the promises of Christ. Let us pray. O GOD, whose only begotten Son, by His life, death, and resurrection, has purchased for us the rewards of eternal life, grant, we beseech Thee, that meditating upon these mysteries of the Most Holy Rosary of the Blessed Virgin Mary, we may imitate what they contain and obtain what they promise, through the same Christ Our Lord. Amen.

After each decade  say the following prayer requested by the Blessed Virgin Mary at Fatima: "O my Jesus, forgive us our sins, save us from the fires of hell, lead all souls to Heaven, especially those who have most need of your mercy."

As suggested by the Pope John Paul II the Joyful mysteries are said on Monday and Saturday, the Luminous on Thursday, the Sorrowful on Tuesday and Friday, and the Glorious on Wednesday and Sunday (with this exception: Sundays of Christmas season - The Joyful; Sundays of Lent - Sorrowful) ( You can buy them online for hundreds of dollars )

What do you think about the rosary now?

It is not my purpose to belittle put down, judge or condemn how another person worships their god. Whether it be the American Indians that worship their totem poles, have their medicine men and their happy hunting ground or the Muslims that martyr themselves to be met by a certain number of virgins on the other side. My aim is to supply others with the truth that the Holy Spirit and others have been instrumental in helping me to see. If one would only spend a few minutes seeking out and researching the Catholic church and all of the pagan influences in place at Vatican City. The sun wheels of worship, Dagon the half fish half man god, the obelisk in the center of St. Peter Square, Phallic worship if you will, then placed exactly in the center of the circle that represents a woman’s reproductive organ, the fish cap the pope wears, and much, much more. How much does it really take before we are able to realize and see her for what she really is? 

The woman was dressed in purple and scarlet, and was glittering with gold, precious stones and pearls. She held a golden cup in her hand, filled with abominable things and the filth of her adulteries. And upon her forehead was a name written, MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH. ( Revelation 17: 4 - 5 ) Adding to this is the fact that there is not a dimes worth of difference in any of the Protestant churches, they are simply protesting Catholics that have been feeding at the same table of demons. There is not one single doctrine of truth that any one of them believe and teach to others, not one!. It is hocus pocus religion at the highest level. It is the Babylon of confusion through and through. Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues. ( Revelation 18: 4 )

Remember the statement I made in the beginning of this letter, concerning Christ telling us that we can worship Him in vain? Revealing the truth should cause one to wonder why He even lets us live, without wondering why it is that He will not accept our worship. We can all be forever grateful and thankful that God is nothing at all like those of the Babylon of confusion have painted Him for others to look at and to believe. If what they believe and teach to others to believe was anywhere near the truth, we all might just as well crawl into a big rat hole and pull it in after ourselves. We have worked for and have earned the death penalty according to Romans. 

Our wages is that which we receive from our work. For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord. ( Romans 6:23 ) Why is it that all Christians of the Babylon of confusion accept and believe that the wages of sin is death for all mankind, while virtually none of them believe that the gift of God is eternal life for all? My prayer to God, is that some who read these words might be motivated to seek and search after the truth of God beyond their churches of mortar and brick. Where again the ministers of Satan appearing as angels of light will all do their level best to keep you in darkness by feeding you the same perversions of the truth that has been going on since Christ walked the earth as a physical human person. Kind of reminds me of a story I once heard. A man complained that his minister must have thought he was a mushroom. He said that he was kept in the dark and had been fed horse manure. Today might be just the right time for you to decide you are sick of being in the dark and need a change of diet.

My friends, my brothers and sisters in our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. I feel privileged to sit here in my home midst comfort and plenty at eighty years old and do the work that God has given me to do. At eighteen years old I was just as carnal as a human being could possibly be. I excelled at being bad and took a twisted pride in it. I joined the U.S. Army at age seventeen through no great sorrow to my father who I am certain was happy to rid himself of a growing problem. I was a quick learner when it came to the vices of life. I immediately took up smoking and drinking to look and feel more like a mature soldier that I thought I had become. Back in 1949 you could drink in any bar in town if you were wearing a military uniform. I took absolute and full advantage of that rule. I had some of the most interesting activity possible within the duty I was being trained for. 

In Basic training at Fort Riley Kansas, I took Army Infantry training, I was most interested and in awe of the machine gun, and what a deadly weapon it was. And even though our instructor told us that an average life of a machine gunner under attack was about three minutes, I had no fear at that point. At eighteen years old I found myself in front line combat as a machine gunner in Korea. The one and only thing I ever volunteered for all the while I was in the Army. The Army had worked us up to a lather and hatred for our enemy, and I couldn’t wait to see lots of blood, all from the enemy, none of mine. I saw sights, sounds and had experiences that chill my blood yet today when brought back to mind. I had fully resigned myself that I would probably die there in the rice paddy’s or frozen mountains of Korea. I recall reading a statement made by General George ( Old blood and guts ) Patton of WW11. He said, “every good soldier should die in the last battle”. I was sure that I would, but it seems that God had other plans for me.

I was wounded in action on March 9, 1951 and shipped first to a hospital in Osaka, Japan. Then in a few weeks back to the USA. The 30, 40 and 50 below zero weather along without decent winter clothing or never being able to get any relief from it and barely anything to eat to sustain ourselves, I was down to about one hundred pounds when arriving in Japan. I came back to Percy Jones Army Hospital in Battle Creek, Michigan. My folks and my wife to be came down to visit, and barely knew who I was, even though I had gained up to 112 pound at the time. I spent about a year in the hospital before returning to duty. Had gotten married by that time to the girl of my dreams I had known since she was about eleven or twelve years old. 

I told my brother one day as we watched her jumping rope with some other girls. “That’s the girl I am going to marry someday.” God has blessed me today with a family a nice home and plenty of everything to make life comfortable. It wasn’t always that way, it was a struggle and many problems to deal with, including an ongoing drinking problem and all that goes with it. God began to call me and I learned what repentance was. That my life and lifestyle needed to change. And from that day until today I am still in that attitude of change. Sometimes slow and maybe inconsistent, but then back again to get my life in line with the word of God as I see it. God is revealing things to me now it seems on a regular basis. I never seem to lack in things to write about to help others to see His wonderful and awe inspiring truth.

It has occurred to me as I look around and see the condition of the world in which we live and seemingly getting worse almost every day. Going from the biggest lender nation in the world and now the biggest borrower. What does the word of God say about this condition? The rich rule over the poor, and the borrower is slave to the lender. ( Proverbs 22:7 ) Coupled together with our nations morality, which is for the most part no morality at all. A nation that has never shed itself of pagan symbols and beliefs. The Washington monument the biggest obelisk in the world along with multiple millions of them fastened to the roof tops of our churches from one coast to the other. Hearkening back to those that have become aware of it as phallic symbols of worship, an upright penis if you will. 

Lady liberty beckoning us all to come join her in promiscuity of every nature, and a good portion have done so. Marriage becoming obsolete and fragmented families the normal lifestyle. Where child molestation and abuse is rampant behind closed doors at every turn, unbeknownst to most. Just this evening on the news I hear about 122 Catholic priests being released from the church for molestation within their parishes. It is a rare TV show that doesn’t show almost open nudity of both men and women. Other shows throwing their F bombs at every opportunity. Using the name of God in vain having no regard for whom it may be an offence to. The going past the accepting of the homosexual population as they now flaunt, push and promote that lifestyle. 

It causes me to wonder, when will God finally have enough as He did with Sodom and Gomorrah? Here is something else to consider. I am an eighty year old man as I said before. I am not the sharpest tool in the shed, and I know it. I have a ninth grade education, dropping out of school to join the Army at seventeen. I do not know proper punctuation, proper grammar, proper sentence structure, but am finding a way to get the word of God out to others. We know that God talked through the mouth of an Ass, and that He can raise up stones to do His work. Is He using me and others like me to show gifted and talented people that even the least of us that have Jesus Christ living in us, have the ability to overcome any and all obstacles that without Him would cause the clever and mighty to stumble and fall?

We may be closer to the return of Jesus Christ then we care to think about or to believe. World events and the direction that mankind is heading in should be a wake up call to get our ducks in a row. History has shown that a society can stray only so far away from God, before He brings it down for its own good. God works the same way with individuals and especially so with those He has established as leaders. Remember His dealings with king Nebuchadnezzar when he thought it was all by his own might and power that he had gained such prominence. God had to shake him back into the reality of whom it is that brings all things to a proper and successful conclusion. 

You will be driven from human society, and you will live in the fields with the wild animals. You will eat grass like a cow, and you will be drenched with the dew of heaven. Seven periods of time will pass while you live this way, until you learn that the Most High rules over the kingdoms of the world and gives them to anyone he chooses. ( Daniel 4:25 ) ( NLT ) 

King Nebuchadnezzar was sent into his symbolic lake of fire to get his thinking straightened out and expelled out of himself.  Some of the carnality and unrighteousness that had puffed him up and caused him to believe he had done all things on his own, by his own power and might. He had to learn a hard lesson, but the point did get through after seven years. At the end of that time, I, Nebuchadnezzar, raised my eyes toward heaven, and my sanity was restored. Then I praised the Most High; I honored and glorified him who lives forever. His dominion is an eternal dominion; his kingdom endures from generation to generation. 35. All the peoples of the earth are regarded as nothing. He does as he pleases with the powers of heaven and the peoples of the earth. No one can hold back his hand or say to him: “What have you done?” ( Daniel 4:34 -35 )

Is the hand writing on our own walls? Is God on the verge of shaking us back into the reality of whom it is that determines world events? Has our collective backs been turned away from God to long as we sit symbolically facing east worshipping the sun? Are our women symbolically weeping for Tammuz, the husband/son of Ishtar? ( representing the satanic perversion that exists on every side of us? ) Then he brought me to the door of the gate of the LORD'S house which was toward the north; and, behold, there sat women weeping for Tammuz. ( Ezekiel 8:14 ) 

Are we all loosing our natural affection as God has supplied it to us? What is happening or causing all of the calamity and unrighteousness that we see around us on a daily basis? Has God given us all over to a reprobate mind? Is there anything we can or should do about it? Empathy is having the ability to place ourselves in another person position, to experience and feel what it is like to go through what it is that they have endured. Suppose we all imagine in earnest as much as we can, what it must have been like for all that Christ had to suffer and die for, that all of our sin would be forgiven. That all of mankind at that point had been guaranteed eternal life. That in due time, all to have immortal, spirit life as God and Christ have life. Now imagine how it must grieve the spirit in Christ that most will not believe that He is whom He claims to be, the Savior of the world. Here is what He has inspired to be written down and recorded in His Word.

( 1 John 5: 10 )

He that believeth on the Son of God hath the witness within himself: He that believeth not God hath made him a liar; because he believeth not the record that God gave of his Son.

( John 8: 45 )   And because I tell you the truth, ye believe me not.

( John 16: 9 )   ( NLT ) The worlds sin is unbelief in me.

( Hebrews 4:2 ) We have heard the same Good News that your ancestors heard. But the message didn't help those who heard it in the past because they didn't believe.

Our sin is unbelief!

I have shown you how we can worship God in vain according to Christ’ own words. It is human nature to believe we have plenty of time to repent, change direction in our belief system as we see the need to. But scripture I have already quoted tells us how foolish that would be as we knock on the door and ask to be let in 21 “Not everyone who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but only the one who does the will of my Father who is in heaven. 22 Many will say to me on that day, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name and in your name drive out demons and in your name perform many miracles?’ 23 Then I will tell them plainly, ‘I never knew you. Away from me, you evildoers!’ ( Matthew 7:21-23 ) 

It then becomes important for us to know what the will of the Father in heaven is. Because it is only those who will be doing the will of His Father who will enter the kingdom heaven. 11 Afterward the other virgins came also, saying, ‘Lord, lord, open to us.’ 12 But he answered, ‘Truly, I say to you, I do not know you.’( Matthew 25: 11-12 ) And why call you me, Lord, Lord, and do not the things which I say? ( Luke 6:46 ) 

I am not here for any personal gain, I am not asking for any tithes and offerings and in fact wouldn’t accept them if you had any way of sending them without my address. It is not by intimidation or manipulation to scare folks into line, or to subject anyone to myself, that I publish these things to our website. You have the option to accept or reject it all. I am doing the work that God has given me to do. It will be to our own advantage to reflect upon the reality of which we would rather hear coming from the mouth of Jesus Christ. His lord said unto him, Well done, good and faithful servant; you have been faithful over a few things, I will make you ruler over many things: enter into the joy of your lord. ( Matthew 25:23 ) Or Then I will tell them plainly, 'I never knew you. Away from me, you evildoers!' ( Matthew 7:23 )
