CREMATION

 

CREMATION”

This subject has come up lately and the Lord has been leading me to write on it. The Devil really likes Cremation, in fact his whole plan is to destroy you both physically and spiritually! What if we didn’t have graves of great Christians to remind us and be a witness to us of the miracles that God did through them and with their lives.

In the ancient world, cremation was the normal practice of Greeks and Romans. Many of them believed in the immortality of the soul and saw no reason to give special attention to the body. Hindus, with their doctrine of reincarnation, practiced cremation, and still do today. At the other extreme were the Egyptians, who preserved the corpse by mummification.

As the catacombs in Rome attest, the early Christians insisted on burying their dead. Why were Christians so concerned about the body’s proper disposal? The body of every human is created by God, in his image, and deserves to be treated with respect; When the Word became flesh in the Incarnation, God uniquely hallowed human life and bodily existence forever; “The Word was made flesh and dwelt among us, and we beheld his glory as the only begotten of the father full of grace and truth.” (John 1:14). The Holy Spirit dwells within believers, making their bodies vessels of honor; and As Jesus himself was buried and raised bodily from the dead, so Christians believed their burial was a witness to the bodily resurrection to come. Cremation does not honor God or please him. “How beautiful are thy feet with shoes, O prince’s daughter! The joints of thy thighs are like jewels, the work of the hands of a cunning workman.” (Song of Solomon 7:1).

 Your body is beautiful in Gods eyes, even your feet, especially if you are preaching the Gospel. “How beautiful upon the mountains are the feet of him that bringeth good tidings, that publisheth peace; that bringeth good tidings of good, that publisheth salvation; that saith unto Zion, Thy God reigneth!” (Isaiah 52:7). “I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvellous are thy works; and that my soul knoweth right well.” (Psalms 139:14). “We are fearfully and wonderfully made, Who are you to burn up God’s property? For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God’s.” (1 Corinthians 6:20). “And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth. So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.” (Genesis 1:26.27). Your carnal mind is the enemy of God, (Romans 8:6,7).` Don’t lean to your own understanding.

 

Many martyrs were burned to death, but Christians believed God would bring them forth undamaged at the resurrection. In the context of the early church, where cremation was associated with pagan rituals and beliefs, burial seemed a more loving, reverent way to bear witness to God’s ultimate victory over death.

The first cremation in America took place in 1876, accompanied by readings from Charles Darwin and the Hindu scriptures. Cremation started as an ungodly ceremony and still is! It is associated with an ungodly spirit of rebellion which is as the sin of witchcraft!

What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own? For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God’s.” (1 Corinthians 6:19,20)

Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you? If any man defile the temple of God, him shall God destroy; for the temple of God is holy, which temple ye are.”(1 Corinthians 3:16,17). You wouldn’t burn down a church.

Sometimes one can not avoid being burned up or destroyed by an explosion such as an atom bomb. If such be the case God is able to bring every tiny speck or molecule or proton or electron back together in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye at the resurrection at the 7th trump at the rapture when our old bodies are transformed into our new bodies which last for ever.

Behold, I shew you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed, in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed.” (1 Corinthians 15:51,52)

After all Jesus Christ himself, the Son of The Living God who said, “Follow me and do as I do”, had himself, his own body buried in a tomb, as prophesied in the Scriptures and not burned up! We his followers and fellow believers, and brothers and sisters should do the same. Who would want his child to be burned up? Even if their spirit is not in their body anymore, their body is all we have left in this world. And it is nice to have a place to go to remember them, where their body is buried and their grave is marked with their name and hopefully a cross so they can still be a witness. When people do this it helps them to reflect on their life and the good times and good things, and God. “Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true,whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, what so ever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.” (Philippians 4:11). Don’t be selfish and deprive others of this special time and place!

Beloved this message is straight from God and Jesus Christ his Only Begotten SON, and the Holy Ghost! When Jesus spoke the people were either sad, mad, or glad, if this message doesn’t make you glad it’s probably because you need to change your way of thinking about this subject, so you can be glad and not sad or mad.

 

WALLS

 

A lot of people are against WALLS today, like Trump’s WALL.Well the Holy Spirit spoke to me about walls. Did you know that God has a WALL 200 miles high around his Heavenly City, and he has 12 Pearl Gates, and 12 Strong,Powerful Angels with Swords guarding each Gate?

And he that talked with me had a golden reed to measure the city, and the gates thereof, and the wall thereof. And the city lieth foursquare, and the length is as large as the breadth: and he measured the city with the reed, twelve thousand furlongs. The length and the breadth, and the height of it are equal.” (Revelation 21:15-16). God wants you to know exactly how big your new home is. The city is either a square or a pyramid. I believe it is shaped like a pyramid. All sides are each 12,000 furlongs in length. A furlong Is a distance of 220 yards, there are 3 feet in a yard. So 220 yards X 3 feet in a yard = 660 feet in a furlong. So 12,000 furlongs X 660 feet = 7,920,000 feet. So if you take 7,920,000 feet and divide 5,280 feet into it (The amount of feet in a mile) you get 1,500 miles. So the Heavenly City is 1,500 miles long and 1,500 miles wide, and 1,500 miles high. WOW ! How about that? PRAISE THE LORD !

And he measured the wall thereof, an hundred and forty four cubits, according to the measure of a man, that is, of the angel.”(Revelation 21:17).

A cubit is about 18 inches (the distance from your elbow to the tip of your fingers), so 18 inches X 144 = 2,592 inches divided by 12 inches in a foot = 216 feet. So the wall around the city is around 216 feet high, and it is 1,500 miles long on each of the four sides. The city behind the wall rises 1,500 miles high. (Revelation 21:17), and only the saved can go through the Gates into God’s Paradise City. So if you don’t like WALLS then you don’t like God’s way of doing things, in fact the Bible says, He that diggeth a pit shall fall into it; and whoso breaketh an hedge, a serpent shall bite him.”(Ecclesiastes 10:8).This is talking about God’s hedge of protection around his children, and when we breach this hedge and pass out of his will of protection we are stepping into dangerous territory where we can be attacked by serpents and vipers who can bite us. So be careful out there and don’t break God’s hedge of protection around you and venture out into the devils territory where you can be attacked and bitten.

POWERFUL VERSES ON WALLS!! Make America Great Again.

2 Chronicles 14:7

Therefore he said unto Judah, Let us build these cities, and make about them walls, and towers, gates, and bars, while the land is yet before us; because we have sought the Lord our God, we have sought him, and he hath given us rest on every side. So they built and prospered.

Nehemiah 2:17

Then said I unto them, Ye see the distress that we are in, how Jerusalem lieth waste, and the gates thereof are burned with fire: come, and let us build up the wall of Jerusalem, that we be no more a reproach.

 

Proverbs 25:28 

He that hath no rule over his own spirit
is like a city that is broken down, and without walls.

Say this prayer if you want to be saved: Jesus, I want to know you, and to live forever in Heaven, I know I have made mistakes and done bad things- and I am sorry. Please forgive me. I know I don’t deserve it, but I accept your love and I accept you as my Saviour. I believe you died on the cross for my sins ,and rose from the dead. Please come into my heart and life and fill me with your Holy Spirit and give me peace. Amen

 

 

THE TRINITY EXPLAINED

The word Trinity is not used in the Bible, but it is a commonly used term.The Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit (or the Holy Ghost, which is the same as the Holy Spirit) are the Trinity. “For there are three that bear record in Heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost: and these three are one.” (1 John 5:7). These are our Heavenly Parents. If you have received Jesus Christ as your Saviour. “But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name: which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God. And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth.”(John 1:12-14). These verses are talking about Jesus Christ.

” In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. The same was in the beginning with God. All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made.” ( John 1:1-3). 

 Jesus was the first creation of God.And unto the angel of the church of the Laodiceans write; These things saith the Amen, the faithful and true witness, the beginning of the creation of God;” (Revelations 3:14). “in whom we have redemption through his blood, even the forgiveness of sins: who is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of every creature: for by him were all things created, that are in Heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him: and he is before all things, and by him all things consist. And he is the head of the body, the church: who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead; that in all things he might have the preeminence. For it pleased the Father that in him should all fulness dwell; and, having made peace through the blood of his cross, by him to reconcile all things unto himself; by him, I say, whether they be things in earth, or things in Heaven.” (Colossians 1:14-20). After God made Jesus his Only Begotten Son first, he then made the Holy Ghost, God’s wife, the Comforter. Read our class on “The Holy Ghost” and “Some Helpful Hebrew and Greek” for a detailed explanation of why we believe the Holy Spirit is Female, and our ultimate Mother to those of us who are saved, whither you realize it now or not. WOW, what a shock, many saved people will have when they get to Heaven, and they find out the truth that there are not  three men up there running everything. “ My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me: and I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand. My Father, which gave them me, is greater than all; and no man is able to pluck them out of my Father’s hand. I and my Father are one.” (John 10: 27-30). God the Father, Jesus the Only Begotten Son of God, and the Holy Spirit, are one in unity of heart, thought, and spirit, yet they are three different persons. We are adopted into the Heavenly Family when we receive Jesus Christ as our Saviour, and are born again by his Spirit.

Say this prayer if you want to be saved: Jesus, I want to know you, and to live forever in Heaven, I know I have made mistakes and done bad things- and I am sorry. Please forgive me. I know I don’t deserve it, but I accept your love and I accept you as my Saviour. I believe you died on the cross for my sins ,and rose from the dead. Please come into my heart and life and fill me with your Holy Spirit and give me peace. Amen

The Truth About Creation

FROM CREATION TO ETERNITY (with Chart)

AGE OF THE EARTH CHART 

It is absolutely, and extremely important, that you understand when these events took place and the future events that are soon to happen so you can understand the Bible as you read it. Then you can say I know what that passage of scripture is talking about, and then you can accurately explain it to others.“And the things that thou hast heard of me among many witnesses, the same commit thou to faithful men, who shall be able to teach others also.” (II Timothy 2:2). When you understand this class you will know more truth than all the ungodly universities and their professors put together.

1.) 4,220 B.C. Creation, and Adam and Eve. God and Jesus and the Holy Spirit accomplished this great feat in six days not millions or billions of years. You can not believe in the Bible and evolution. ” And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness:and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth. So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.” Genesis 1:26-27. This date can be calculated by adding up the years in the genealogies recorded in the Bible.(see the Age of the Earth Chart). God spoke creation into existence out of nothing. Adam was created out of the dust of the ground. “And the Lord God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul.” Genesis 2:7.

2.) 2,565 B.C. The great flood. “And Noah was six hundred years old when the flood of waters was upon the earth.” Genesis 7:6 “And God said, Let there be a firmament in the midst of the waters, and let it divide the water from the waters. And God made the firmament, and divided the waters which were under the firmament from the waters which were above the firmament: and it was so.” Genesis 1:6-7. “In the six hundredth year of Noah’s life, in the second month, the seventeeth day of the month, the same day were all the fountains of the great deep broken up, and the windows of heaven were opened.” Genesis 7:11.The reason some people lived longer back then was because there was a water covering surrounding the earth that filtered out the ultra violet rays of the sun which causes us to age. At the time of the flood God removed it, and let it pour down upon the earth.

3.) 2,212 B.C. The birth of Abraham. ( The empire of Egypt-2100-1491 B.C.)

4.) 1491 B.C. The Exodus from Egypt of the Israelites.

5.) 1,012 B.C. Construction of the Jewish Temple by Solomon.

6.) 586 B.C. Destruction of Solomon’s Temple by Babylon. ( Babylon’s Empire 606-536 B.C. ).

7.) 457 B.C. Commandment given to restore and build Jerusalem by Artaxerxes King of Persia, at the beginning of the seventy weeks of Daniel Chapter 9. (The Medo-Persian Empire 536-332 B.C.) ( Grecian Empire 332-322 B.C. Alexander The Great conquered the world in ten years, and then died. The Grecian Empire was divided up into four sections by his four Generals.) Alexander was asked how he conquered the world so fast, his reply was ” By not delaying.”

8.) 4 B.C. Birth of Jesus Christ. ( The Roman Empire 146 B.C. – 400 A.D.)

9.) 26 A.D. Baptism of Jesus Christ, by John The Baptist. ( The end of the 69 weeks of Daniel 9.) This is when Jesus Christ the Messiah was anointed by the Holy Spirit to begin his public ministry and be crucified for the sins of the world.

10.) 30 A.D.- Crucifixion of Jesus Christ, and his ascension to Heaven 40 days after he rose from the dead.

11.) 20(?) A.D. The Covenant is confirmed by the anit-christ, and the last seven years begins.

12.) 20(?) A.D. The Jews begin their daily sacrifice in the rebuilt temple at Jerusalem (Daniel 8: 13,14).

13.) 20(?) A.D. In the middle of the last even years the anit-christ takes away the Jew’s daily sacrifice, and places the Abomination of Desolation, and proclaims himself God. This event triggers the Great Tribulation, or the last three and one half years, or 42 months, or 1,260 days, or the six trumpets, until Jesus resurrects and raptures the saved. (Daniel 9:27), ( Daniel Chapter 11), (Revelation Chapters 7-9), (Revelation Chapters 11-14). (Matthew 24:15,21,29,30).

14.) 2(?) A.D. Jesus appears and resurrects the saved and those still alive on earth and takes us to heaven at the Seventh Trumpet. This event is commonly known as the Rapture. ( I Thessalonians 4:16,17).

15.) The Marriage Super of The Lamb in Heaven, and the Seven Vials of Gods wrath is poured out upon the earth. This takes place during a 75 day time period. (Daniel 12:13,14) Also see Revelation Chapters 16-19

16.) The Battle of Armageddon. Jesus takes over the world, and destroys the armies of the anti-christ, and Jesus rules the world for 1,000 years. The antichrist is thrown into the lake of fire and the devil is chained and bound and thrown into the bottomless pit. ( a volcano?). (Revelation Chapters 19,20).

17.) After the 1,000 years are over the devil is let loose and goes about to raise an army to fight against Jesus and the saints camped at Jerusalem. This time God rains down fire on them and destroys them.

18.) THE GREAT WHITE THRONE JUDGMENT when all the unsaved dead are resurrected and judged. (Revelation 20.)

19.) God creates a new Heaven and Earth. Then the Heavenly City where God, and Jesus, and the Holy Spirit, and the saved live in paradise comes down on earth forever. ( Revelation Chapters 21&22).

Evolution, The Big Lie From The Devil

Margaret Mead, one of the leading teachers on the THEORY of evolution said in the front of her text book on evolution which is taught to our children and paid for by our tax dollars, said “Although I am a firm believer in the THEORY of evolution, yet I must confess that there is not one iota (Tiny speck) of concrete proof for the THEORY of evolution.” Some peoples minds are  made up and they don’t want to be confused with the facts. It takes more faith to believe in evolution than it does in the Bible! Evolution is a religion of non faith in the Bible and God. In fact you can not believe in Evolution and the Bible.The Bible clearly teaches that the world is only a little older than 6,000 years, and not millions or Billions of years old! (See the age of the earth chart).The Bible says God and Jesus and the Holy Spirit made man and woman in their own image. And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.  So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.” (Genesis 1:26,27).“In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. The same was in the beginning with God. All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made.” (John 1:1-3) God made man and women with one head, two arms, and legs ,ten fingers, on two hands, and ten toes, on two feet, after God and Jesus’s and the Holy Spirit’s own image. Not from an amoeba or a  frog or a monkey. Has charles darwin made a monkey out of you? If evolution were true then we would be up to our necks in missing links, and yet they have not even found one, and the few that they claim to have found have been proven to be fakes and forgeries, and made up lies.The reason people choose to believe in this lie (from the devil) of evolution is because they are in rebellion in their hearts against God, because if they chose to believe in God and that he created them and everything else, then they might owe him some respect and obedience and some thankfulness and allegiance.So God allowed the devil through charles darwin to concoct this ridiculous scheme and lie from hell. No wonder the young people are having such problems,because they are taught that there is no God, and no judgement day, and no right from wrong, well then why not just live a selfish life, and climb the latter of success, and try and step on as many heads as you can to get there, and get as much as you can for yourself ? If you’re just going to die and that is it, no after life ,no Heaven or Hell, no judgement for right or wrong and we just came from a monkey.  Hitler, and Stalin, and Mao, some of the largest mass murders of millions in history, were firm believers in evolution.The Lord showed me that the public school system of today is like the god molech that the children of Israel threw their babies into, that they really didn’t want any way, and in it’s giant belly there was a raging fire where they would be burned up alive.This is what is happening to them spiritually in the eyes of God  from the false teachers and high priests of evolution in the school system! If you want more scientific proof that evolution is a lie check out “Evolution the Big Lie Exposed”, and others on the internet.There is no proof for the Theory of evolution.There is proof for the Bible through fulfilled prophecy. Which are you going to believe in?

For more scientific proof look on the internet under Evolution The Big Lie Exposed, and read the other teachings about evolution in this web site, and you will find some good, eye opening true teachings. AGE OF THE EARTH CHART  (Note: this chart was updated in 2014, so after 2014 add the appropriate amount of years to bring it up to today’s date.)

ANOTHER FALSE DOCTRINE FROM THE DEVIL EXPOSED !

There is a false teaching going around about a former race of people who lived on the earth before Adam. This is a dangerous false doctrine straight from the devil himself. Another one of his lies to try and belittle the importance of Jesus Christ, and justify the lie of evolution, which teaches the earth is millions of years old, This false doctrine teaches that the world was wiped out by a flood called the flood of lucifer and that the entire human race was wiped out before Adam. They base their lie on a misrepresentation of  (Genesis 1:28) which says; “And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply,and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth.” Actually the word replenish comes from the original Hebrew word “male, or mala”,which means to fill. This verse was originally written in Hebrew. God told Adam and Eve to be fruitful and multiply and fill the earth, which they started and we have been helping to fulfill that commandment ever since, for a little over 6000 years.( See: The Age of The Earth Chart) The Bible says “In the beginning God created the Heavens and the earth,” and it goes on to say he finished all of his creation in 6 days including Adam, and God rested on the seventh DAY! (Geneses Chapter 1). “And so it is written, the first man Adam was made a living soul;”  (I Corinthians 15:45a).In the book of (Luke Chapter 3) it gives an account of all Jesus relatives all the way back to Adam. Do you see how important it is to know the Word to fight the lies of the devil, and rightly divide the word of truth? (II Timothy 2:15). For a more in depth research into this subject look up “Replenish in Hebrew” on the internet. This lesson came about from a question from a new dear brother,and student to this web site, named Chris.

JESUS CHRIST THE SON OF GOD

Someone once asked me “Where in the Bible did Jesus say that he is the Son Of God?

 “While he yet spake, behold, a bright cloud overshadowed them: and behold a voice out of the cloud, which said, This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased; hear ye him.”  Matthew 10:5

 “And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.” John 1:4

 “Herein is love, not that we loved God, but that he loved us, and sent his Son to be the propitiation for our sins.” 1John4:10

“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” John 3:16

“Even so we, when we were children, were in bondage under the elements of the world: but when the fulness of the time was come, God sent forth his Son, made of a woman, made under the law, to redeem them that were under the law, that we might receive the adoption of sons.” Galatians 4:3-5

 (which he had promised afore by his prophets in the holy scriptures,)  concerning his Son Jesus Christ our Lord, which was made of the seed of David according to the flesh; and declared to be the Son of God with power, according to the spirit of holiness, by the resurrection from the dead: Romans 1:2-4

“and the Holy Ghost descended in a bodily shape like a dove upon him, and a voice came from heaven, which said, Thou art my beloved Son; in thee I am well pleased.” Luke 3:22

I am glad I know the scripture, Jesus said; ” I and my Father are one. Then the Jews took up stones again to stone him. Jesus answered them, Many good works have I shewed you from my Father; for which of those works do ye stone me? The Jews answered him, saying, For a good work we stone thee not; but for blasphemy; and because that thou, being a man, makest thyself God. Jesus answered them, Is it not written in your law, I said, Ye are gods? If he called them gods, unto whom the word of God came, and the scripture cannot be broken; say ye of him, whom the Father hath sanctified, and sent into the world, Thou blasphemest; because I said, I am the Son of God? If I do not the works of my Father, believe me not. But if I do, though ye believe not me, believe the works: that ye may know, and believe, that the Father is in me, and I in him.” John 10:30-38

 

Say this prayer if you want to be saved: Jesus, I want to know you, and to live forever in Heaven, I know I have made mistakes and done bad things- and I am sorry. Please forgive me. I know I don’t deserve it, but I accept your love and I accept you as my Saviour. I  believed you died on the cross for my sins and rose from the dead. Please come into my heart and life and fill me with your Holy Spirit and give me peace. Amen.

 

Welcome To The Spirit World

“And the seventy returned again with joy, saying, Lord, even the devils are subject unto us through thy name. And he said unto them, I beheld Satan as lightning fall from heaven. Behold, I give unto you power to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy: and nothing shall by any means hurt you. Notwithstanding in this rejoice not, that the spirits are subject unto you; but rather rejoice, because your names are written in heaven.” (Luke 10:17-20). These verses clearly show that spirits are subject unto those who are His disciples, even if you are not a 100% disciple, the spirits are still subject unto you through the Name of Jesus Christ. You are a disciple if you continue in his Word.“Then said Jesus to those Jews which believed on him, If ye continue in my word, then are ye my disciples indeed;and ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.”(John 8:31-32). Some people say a spirit made me do it, or say something, or look a certain way with a facial expression, but this is not scriptural, the Bible says And the spirits of the prophets are subject to the prophets.”(1 Corinthians 14:32).You have control over your own spirit, and you have the power in The Name of Jesus Christ to resist or yield to spirits good or bad. You can’t keep the birds from flying over your head, but you can keep them from landing and making a nest in your hair. “Then certain of the vagabond Jews, exorcists, took upon them to call over them which had evil spirits the name of the Lord Jesus, saying, We adjure you by Jesus whom Paul preacheth. And there were seven sons of one Sceva, a Jew, and chief of the priests, which did so. And the evil spirit answered and said, Jesus I know, and Paul I know; but who are ye? And the man in whom the evil spirit was leaped on them, and overcame them, and prevailed against them, so that they fled out of that house naked and wounded. And this was known to all the Jews and Greeks also dwelling at Ephesus; and fear fell on them all, and the name of the Lord Jesus was magnified. And many that believed came, and confessed, and shewed their deeds. Many of them also which used curious arts brought their books together, and burned them before all men: and they counted the price of them, and found it fifty thousand pieces of silver. So mightily grew the word of God and prevailed.” (Acts 19:13-20). Jesus said, “When the unclean spirit is gone out of a man, he walketh through dry places, seeking rest; and finding none, he saith, I will return unto my house whence I came out. And when he cometh, he findeth it swept and garnished. Then goeth he, and taketh to him seven other spirits more wicked than himself; and they enter in, and dwell there: and the last state of that man is worse than the first.”(Luke 11:24-26). Jesus said when the spirit is gone out of a person, seven other spirits can enter that person if they let them. That is why it is important to stay in the Word, and get strong in the Word, and put on the Whole Armor of God. (read: Ephesians Chapter 6).There is a war in the spirit world constantly going on , night and day. The devil is fighting for your soul. The devil can not possess your spirit if you are saved and born again, but he can oppress you and cause you all kind of trouble with his demons if you allow them too. Beloved we are in the end times and as we get closer to the Rapture there will be more and more spiritual attacks from the enemy and his demons. “And at that time shall Michael stand up, the great prince which standeth for the children of thy people: and there shall be a time of trouble, such as never was since there was a nation even to that same time: and at that time thy people shall be delivered, every one that shall be found written in the book.”(Daniel 12:1).  And there was war in heaven: Michael and his angels fought against the dragon; and the dragon fought and his angels, and prevailed not; neither was their place found any more in heaven. And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.”(Revelations 12:7-9). “Woe to the inhabiters of the earth and of the sea! for the devil is come down unto you, having great wrath, because he knoweth that he hath but a short time.”(Revelations 12:12b). We have to constantly stay on guard in the spirit through prayer and asking Jesus to cleanse us from any bad spirits. “Now ye are clean through the Word that I have spoken unto you”.(John 15:3). Pray over your children, and over yourselves everyday as they go out into the world especially the public schools, as they are constantly under attack by all the demons there. You also need to pray over people that come into your home, as some people just carry hoards of spirits around with them, like Legion of whom Jesus cast out a herd of demons.“And Jesus asked him, saying, What is thy name? And he said, Legion: because many devils were entered into him. And they besought him that he would not command them to go out into the deep. And there was there an herd of many swine feeding on the mountain: and they besought him that he would suffer them to enter into them. And he suffered them. Then went the devils out of the man, and entered into the swine: and the herd ran violently down a steep place into the lake, and were choked.”(Luke 8:30-33. You need to also pray over objects that come into your home. They are called talismans that spirits get into and come out of when they find a willing host. You can just say a silent prayer over people and things, and ask in The Name of Jesus Christ the Only Begotten Son of God to cleanse your home from bad spirits. Bad spirits can also come in through bad TV shows and Horror Movies. Beware especially at Halloween, when demons run rampant and are bold. Some people even think it is funny. Don’t be deceived. The devil is a lot smarter than you and me, after all he has been around over 6000 years. However he is not smarter than God, Jesus, and the Holy Ghost. Ask God for discernment. Remember one picture is worth a 1000 words, so is one look or expression, you can’t hide a good spirit, neither can you hide a bad spirit. If a brother or sister be over taken, pray for them and deliver them in the Name of Jesus Christ and you shall save a soul from death. “Brethren, if any of you do err from the truth, and one convert him; let him know, that he which converteth the sinner from the error of his way shall save a soul from death, and shall hide a multitude of sins.”(James 5:19-20). “And as ye go, preach, saying, The kingdom of heaven is at hand. Heal the sick, cleanse the lepers, raise the dead, cast out devils: freely ye have received, freely give.”(Matthew 10:7-8). WELCOME TO THE SPIRIT WORLD !!!! Also see our teaching on “Casting Out Demons.”

Say this prayer if you want to be saved: Jesus, I want to know you, and to live forever in Heaven, I know I have made mistakes and done bad things- and I am sorry. Please forgive me. I know I don’t deserve it, but I accept your love and I accept you as my Saviour. I  believed you died on the cross for my sins and rose from the dead. Please come into my heart and life and fill me with your Holy Spirit and give me peace. Amen.

Alexander Scourby Recorded the first reading of The King James Bible begining with The Book of Psalms in the 1930′s and the Old and New Testament King James Bible for the Blind on 78 LP  in the 1950′s. His reading is still giving sight to the Blind and opening the ears of the deaf. He that has ears to hear let him hear. Jesus said, “It is the spirit that quickeneth; the flesh profiteth nothing: the words that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life.” (John 6:63) “Say not ye, There are yet four months, and then cometh harvest? behold, I say unto you, Lift up your eyes, and look on the fields; for they are white already to harvest.” (John 4:35).

Why we need the Old Testament?

Someone recently said, “we don’t need the Old Testament.” Well, that poor misguided soul who said that couldn’t be more wrong. The Old Testament has countless verses and true stories, and historical accounts that we can learn from. “Now all these things happened unto them for ensamples: and they are written for our admonition, upon whom the ends of the world are come.” (1 Corinthians 10:11). Jesus is the Word.  “And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.” (John 1:14). “Jesus Christ, the same yesterday, today, and forever.” (Hebrews 13:8). “For I am the Lord I change not.” (Malachi 3:6a).So since Jesus is the Word ,and never changes, and is the same yesterday, today, and forever, we had better not dismiss the Old Testament,  because in so doing we are dismissing Jesus Christ. Jesus even said, “Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away.” (Matthew 24:35). The Bible says, “Remove not the ancient landmark,which thy fathers have set.” (Proverbs 22:28). The Old Testament is full of faith building scriptures that you need to know and memorize. The Book of Psalms has so many encouraging promises that we really need today in our lives, not to mention the Book of Proverbs which is full of wisdom for everybody. Then you have all the Bible prophecies which are unfolding in our daily lives, such as the Book of Isaiah and Daniel, which we need to study and be prepared for the End Times. “And what shall I more say? for the time would fail me to tell of Gedeon, and of Barak, and of Samson, and of Jephthae; of David also, and Samuel, and of the prophets: who through faith subdued kingdoms, wrought righteousness, obtained promises, stopped the mouths of lions, quenched the violence of fire, escaped the edge of the sword, out of weakness were made strong, waxed valiant in fight, turned to flight the armies of the aliens. Women received their dead raised to life again: and others were tortured, not accepting deliverance; that they might obtain a better resurrection: and others had trial of cruel mockings and scourgings, yea, moreover of bonds and imprisonment: they were stoned, they were sawn asunder, were tempted, were slain with the sword: they wandered about in sheepskins and goatskins; being destitute, afflicted, tormented; (of whom the world was not worthy:) they wandered in deserts, and in mountains, and in dens and caves of the earth. And these all, having obtained a good report through faith, received not the promise: God having provided some better thing for us, that they without us should not be made perfect.” (Hebrew 11:32-40). It is true that we are not under the Mosaic Law, but under Grace. “Wherefore, my brethren, ye also are become dead to the law by the body of Christ; that ye should be married to another, even to him who is raised from the dead, that we should bring forth fruit unto God.” (Romans 7:4). We are dead to the law by the body of Christ, but that doesn’t mean that we can’t learn from it. There are even health lessons to be learned in the law. Jesus said, “Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfill. For verily I say unto you, till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled.”  (Matthew 5:17-18). The Old Testament is the New Testament concealed, and the New Testament is the Old Testament revealed. Without the Old Testament we couldn’t prove the New Testament through fulfilled Prophecy. Even the Old Testament Law had many references to Jesus Christ.  “Wherefore the law was our schoolmaster to bring us unto Christ,that we might be justified by faith.” (Galatians 3:24). So you see we really do need the Old Testament, and we can’t kick it out or ignore it, just like we can’t take out the foundation that our house is built upon. The Lord even had a shepherd find the dead sea Scrolls in 1947, proving that the Bible hasn’t been changed when they found copies of the Old Testament Books, which are said to be “supernaturally  identical to the King James Bible”. The Old Testament also contains the Genealogies which shows us how Old the Earth is. I hope this lesson will be a help to you and strengthen your faith and your desire to dig into the Word of God. “Blessed are they that do hunger and thirst after righteousness: for they shall be filled.” (Matthew 5:6).

 

Say this prayer if you want to be saved: Jesus, I want to know you, and to live forever in Heaven, I know I have made mistakes and done bad things- and I am sorry. Please forgive me. I know I don’t deserve it, but I accept your love and I accept you as my Saviour. I  believed you died on the cross for my sins and rose from the dead. Please come into my heart and life and fill me with your Holy Spirit and give me peace. Amen.

Wondrous Truths ! Some helpful Hebrew and Greek

 

 If you desire to learn more about the Bible, then it is helpful to learn the meaning  of some Greek and Hebrew words to give you a more in depth understanding of the scriptures. If you just want a basic understanding of the scriptures, then the King James Bible is the best for you to achieve that goal. Here are some important Hebrew and Greek words that you should know.

In Genesis 1:28 the word replenish comes from the Hebrew word “male or mela”, Which means to “fill”. See our teaching called ” ANOTHER FALSE DOCTRINE FROM THE DEVIL EXPOSED !” for a detailed explanation.

Did you know that when you add “im” (in Hebrew) on to the word God it makes it plural? (Elohim). So in the first chapter  where it says God created everything it is actually saying Gods, meaning God, and Jesus, and the Holy Spirit made everything together.
In Hebrew the word “Ruah” was translated into English as the word Spirit, and it refers to feminine, and the word Spirit in Greek is “Pneuma” which can mean either male or female. When the King James Bible was translated from Greek to English in 1611, it was during a time when blasphemers and heretics were burned at the stake. The Scholars  who translated the Bible were apparently afraid of saying that the Holy Spirit was feminine so they used the word ” he ” when referring to the Holy Spirit, instead of saying “she” as is clearly brought out in Hebrew. Also when Jesus was speaking in Aramaic ( the common language of his day) he used a pronoun “Paraclete” that meant feminine when referring to the Holy Spirit. “And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth. So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.” ( Genesis 1:26,27). This verse also shows that God and the Holy Spirit are not some kind of vaporous gas, but an actual being, and that we look like their image. Many preachers say there is no hope for people in Hell, and that once you die and are not saved you are doomed forever to hell. This false teaching offends many peoples sense of God’s love, and mercy, and turns many away from God.  Some of those verses about eternity in the Bible actually come from the Hebrew word “Olam” meaning distant future or distant past, but were translated into English to mean forever. Also in Greek the word “Con ” means a time period. This word “Con” was also translated into English as  “forever”. So it doesn’t necessarily mean that hell and peoples confinement there is forever. A better translation would be for a time period. So those three days that Jesus’ body lay in the tomb, his spirit went to hell to give those people there another chance to get out by believing in him and accepting him as their saviour. For Christ also hath once suffered for sins, the just for the unjust, that he might bring us to God, being put to death in the flesh, but quickened by the Spirit: By which also he went and preached unto the spirits in prison;” (1 Peter 3:18,19).“For as Jonas was three days and three nights in the whale’s belly; so shall the Son of man be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth.” (Matthew 12:40). Why would Jesus go to hell when his body was in the tomb, and preach to the spirits in prison there if they couldn’t have another chance to get out? Praise God for his mercy and Love, which endures forever !!! This means if you have a loved one who died and you were not sure if they were saved or not, there is hope for them still, and they are not doomed to Hell forever with no hope of ever seeing them again, as so many churches teach. MESSIAH, is a Hebrew word and it means “The Anointed One.” The word “Messiah” means, “Christ” in Greek. Jesus was anointed by God in 26 A.D. to begin his public ministry and to die for the sins of everyone who will receive him as their Saviour. When John Baptized him, the Holy Spirit descended upon him.  “And  lo a voice from heaven,(was heard) saying, This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased.(Matthew 3:17). The word “David” in Hebrew means “The Beloved of God”, which is obviously talking  about Jesus Christ. In the Old Testament the prophecies in Ezekiel and Hosea, referring to “David” and the End Times are talking about Jesus Christ, and the Jews who will turn to Jesus as their Messiah, specifically the 144,000 of Revelation Chapters 7&14. “And I will set up one shepherd over them, and he shall feed them, even my servant DAVID; he shall feed them, and he shall be their shepherd. And I the LORD will be their God, and my servant DAVID a prince among them; I the LORD have spoken it. “ ( Ezekiel 34:23,24). “And DAVID my servant shall be king over them; and they all shall have one shepherd: they shall also walk in my judgments, and observe my statutes, and do them. And they shall dwell in the land that I have given unto Jacob my servant, wherein your fathers have dwelt; and they shall dwell therein, even they, and their children, and their children’s children for ever: and my servant DAVID shall be their prince for ever.” (Ezekiel 37:24,25). “afterward shall the children of Israel return, and seek the LORD their God, and DAVID their king; and shall fear the LORD and his goodness in the latter days.” (Hosea 3:5).For a clearer understanding of these verses, every place where it says DAVID just say” The Beloved of GOD“, who is JESUS CHRIST. The word “Week” found in Daniel Chapter 9, comes from the Hebrew word “Shabuwa”, which means a period of seven years. Study our class on Daniel Chapter 9 for a detailed understanding on this so very important subject. “NOW FAITH  is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen” (Hebrews 11:1).The word “Substance” comes from the Greek word “Hupostasis”, which means the “Title Deed”. In other words if you have the Title Deed to a property you know that you own it, and you can be sure it is yours even if you have never even seen it !” The word “Believe” comes from the Greek word  “Pisteuo” which means to trust and take in.You don’t really need to learn the whole Greek and Hebrew language to understand the Bible, but it would’t hurt, if you think you have enough time. If you just understand the Hebrew and Greek in this lesson it will greatly help you to understand some of these basic truths of God’s Word. Jesus said; “Blessed are they that do hunger and thirst, after righteousness for they shall be filled.” (Matthew 5:6). The Bible says; “Open thou mine eyes that I may behold wondrous things out of thy law.” (Psalm 119:18).

Say this prayer if you want to be saved: Jesus, I want to know you, and to live forever in Heaven, I know I have made mistakes and done bad things- and I am sorry. Please forgive me. I know I don’t deserve it, but I accept your love and I accept you as my Saviour. I believe you died on the cross for my sins ,and rose from the dead. Please come into my heart and life and fill me with your Holy Spirit and give me peace. Amen

 

 

Why we use the King James version of the Bible

Recently my son James came over and commented on our website. He said how he really liked it and thought it was a great way to get the Gospel out to all the world as Jesus commanded us in Mark 16:15. He also said, “couldn’t we use regular English instead of the King James English, so maybe people could understand it better?” As I was praying about this later it came to me that maybe I had not taught him good enough when he was younger about why we use the King James Bible.The Lord also spoke to me and said “Come on, what is so hard about a few thee’s and thou’s and thine’s.” I mean really is that so hard to grasp? Also Fred said the same thing and even gave us a Bible that was not the King James Version for Christmas. He was just trying to do a kind gesture, but he didn’t understand apparently the following. Perhaps we can help others also to understand the reasons why we use the King James Bible which are as follows,but first let me share with you a little Bible History:

1.) The Old testament was first written in Hebrew, and The New Testament was first written in Greek.The Old Testament was translated into Greek in 250 B.C. under the reign of King Philadelphus of Greece. This is an established historical fact that is taught in all Colleges and Universities.It is called “The Septuagint“.
2.) The New Testament was translated in 1611 A.D. under the reign of King James in England. It was translated by 70 scholars and Theologians of the Hebrew and Greek language,and scriptures,and it took them ten years to finish this monumental task.This was accomplished during a time when heretics were burned at the stake,so they were extremely careful to not make any mistakes at all,and to get every jot and comma correct.
3.) This was done during a time when the English language was at it’s most perfect state of perfection, as God ordained.Not the slang English as we speak today.

(II Peter 1:20-21) “Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation (that is, they did not originate with man).For the prophecy came not in old time by the will of man: but holy men of God spake as they were moved by the Holy Ghost.”

(II Timothy 3:16) ”All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness:”God divinely inspired the original King James Bible in the most beautiful form of the English language.

4.) The King James Bible has stood the test of time.
5.) The King James Bible is said to be the most accurate (“supernaturally Identical to the Dead Sea Scrolls,”Which were found in 1947 A.D. near the Dead Sea, and were actual copy’s of the Old Testament on parchment dated 100′s of years B.C.”). The devil got into the translations of the other Bibles after the King James Bible and watered them down and left out scriptures and even changed some of them.Some even took out the virgin Birth of Jesus Christ.If you use some of these other translations you are just as good as saying “they are ok, go ahead and use them too.” God would not leave his children in darkness especially in these end times. Beware don’t let satan beguile and deceive you by these versions from the devil and Hell. I am sure you can understand and endure a few thee’s and thou’s to get the right spirit and interpretation from The Lord. Beloved this is not a light thing! This is very serious to God! You can do a study about this subject for more in depth information from the Internet. If these powerful reasons to use the King James Version of the Bible when quoting scripture are not enough for you. Why don’t you be like it says in Acts 17:11,“Now these were more noble than those in Thessalonica, because they searched the scriptures daily to see if these things were so.” In other words don’t just take my word for it,or be like the people who say ” I pay my preacher to tell me whats going on”, but check it out for yourself. That is why everything that I teach I back it up with scriptures, because the last thing in the world that I want to do is to teach something that is not scriptural, and in fact I ask everyone to please show me anything that I teach that is not scriptural and I will change it and make it known.You need to get it right and use the right version. God is not the author of confusion! The devil is, watch out !!! Here are some websites for a more in-depth study of why we use the King James Bible when quoting scripture and it’s importance;
