Do Not Make Peace With The Devil!

The title of this article sounds very basic and simple does it not? I mean after all, who on earth would want to make peace with the devil? The problem is that there are multitudes of people within the church ranks that do just that, because they make light of the doctrines of devils which the Bible warns us about. Somebody once said, that the one thing that we learn from history, is that we don’t learn from history, and that person was speaking the truth. The Jewish apostle Paul spoke the following words regarding this very topic:

Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils; (1 Timothy 4:1)  

It was the Holy Spirit of God who spoke to Paul concerning the “last days” and he made it clear to Paul that there would be those who would desert the faith, after being seduced by “doctrines of devils.” Now I do not think that there would be many who would remain at a church service, if the man in the pulpit sprouted red hot devil’s horns right in the middle of his message, but that is not how Satan works. The devil is a very deceitful, and slick seducer, and he takes his time. He works inch by inch, and little by little until he accomplishes his purpose. He brings in his false teachings which are contrary to God’s word, and he replaces the truth with something that sounds similar to the scriptures, so that he can get over on people. The devils doctrines make void the truth of God’s word and few people ever seem to notice.  The Lord Jesus Christ often dealt with the religious Jewish Pharisees, and he spoke out against their truth destroying traditions.

Then the Pharisees and scribes asked him, Why walk not thy disciples according to the tradition of the elders, but eat bread with unwashen hands? He answered and said unto them, Well hath Esaias (Isaiah) prophesied of you hypocrites, as it is written, This people honoureth me with their lips, but their heart is far from me. Howbeit in vain do they worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men. For laying aside the commandment of God, ye hold the tradition of men, as the washing of pots and cups: and many other such like things ye do. And he said unto them, Full well ye reject the commandment of God, that ye may keep your own tradition. (Mark 7:5-9) 

It was the same Spirit of the living God that opened my eyes to the gross deception of the Roman Catholic church. I was in bondage to the man made traditions of Rome, which made void the very word of God. It was the Spirit of the living God who showed me that the price for my sins was already paid for on the cross by Jesus Christ, and that I have already been reconciled back to God. 

But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. Much morethen, being now justified by his blood, we shall be saved from wrath through him. For if, when we were enemies, we were reconciled to God by the death of his Son, much more, being reconciled, we shall be saved by his life. (Romans 5:8-10) 

If I chose to remain as a Roman Catholic then I would have been in disobedience to God’s word. I would have been a liar if I told people that the Roman Catholic Mass could satisfy the justice of God for my sins and theirs too! Yet, the Catholic church teaches (and without compromise), that their Catholic priest satisfies the justice of God for mans sins whenever he performs a Mass. Hello! I say Hello is there anybody home? That teaching on the Mass is so demonic that I believe the devil himself is amazed that he has bamboozled millions for so many centuries. When people ignore the truthful warnings which are found throughout God’s word, then they are making a choice to make peace with the devil. When you find yourself following the teachings of a famous preacher, or book author, when their teachings are in opposition to the scriptures, then you have decided to make peace with the devil. You have chosen to take heed to the “doctrines of devils” which the apostle Paul warned us about. I thank God for the Holy Spirit, and I thank God for the scriptures, because I know that the Lord has been ever so faithful to show me the truth, and that he will continue to show me the truth until he takes me home.

But ye have an unction from the Holy One, and ye know all things. (1 John 2:20)

What was it that brought me out of the demonic bondage of Mary worship in the Roman Catholic church. It was the truth from the word of God. My wife Cathy got saved before I did, and the Lord opened her spiritual eyes to the truth. She witnessed to me, and I resisted her for several weeks until the Holy Spirit of God compelled me to listen to what she had to say. The religious trinkets of Rome which included “Mary” medals,  images of Catholic “saints” and other Catholic things were discarded immediately. We were set free by the Holy Spirit of God, and we fell in love with the real Jesus Christ. That is why I speak out against the gross deception and hypocrisy of the modern day “anointed” charismatic preachers who try to tell the people that the Roman Catholic church is a true Christian denomination. Have you ever noticed that even the boldest so called Christian apologists will never speak out against the so called “church” of Rome? It is spiritual warfare folks, and there are millions of souls that are hanging in the balance. I believe that we are going to see many more people such as the Swedish Pastor, Ulf Ekman who was seduced by the teachings of Rome, as the modern day compromisers sit idly by and say nothing.  The devil did his job well and he seduced another one. For the sake of your own soul, and for the sake of those who are influenced by you, do not make peace with the devil!

Roman Catholic Pope Francis Very Happy That “Christians” and Muslims Are United in Their Devotion to the Virgin Mary”

Folks it is truly getting scary out there in the “church world” and I am looking up now more than ever. Casey Stengel a former manager of the NY Mets used the words “Amazing, Amazing, Amazing” when speaking of his team, and I am going to borrow those words here. It is absolutely “Amazing, Amazing, Amazing”, what is happening around the world, especially when it comes to the false church of Rome, their false gospel, and their influence in the world. Here is an excerpt from the Vatican Information Service:

THE POPE ENTRUSTS TO MARY ALL THE CITIZENS OF LEBANON 

Vatican City, 26 March 2014 (VIS) – Yesterday afternoon Cardinal Secretary of State Pietro Parolin sent a message, on behalf of the Holy Father Francis, to the participants in the eighth Islamic-Christian Prayer Meeting, “Together around Mary, Our Lady”. The meeting, which took place in Beirut, Lebanon, to celebrate the Solemnity of the Annunciation, was organised by the St. Joseph University Alumni Assocation and the College of Our Lady of Jamhour.

The Holy Father shows his joy at seeing “Christians and Muslims united in their devotion to the Virgin Mary”, and comments that “the shrine of Our Lady of Lebanon in Harissa is a blessed place where everyone can go to invoke her”. He also encourages Christians and Muslims to “work together for peace and for the common good, thus contributing to the full development of the person and the edification of society”, and entrusts the participants in the meeting “and all the inhabitants of Lebanon to the maternal intercession of the Virgin Mary, Queen of Peace and Protectress of Lebanon”.

Which Jesus Came Out of the “Virgin Mary’s” Womb?

The Muslim Jesus or the Jesus of the Bible?

I used to belong to the crowd of millions of deceived souls who had a devotion to the “Virgin Mary,” until the Lord opened my eyes and showed me that it was totally demonic in origin. It is extremely interesting that the Muslim people also have a devotion to the “Virgin Mary”? Did you know that the Muslims do not even believe that God has a Son, so the question that I must ask, is which “Virgin Mary” do the people of Islam (Muslims) have a devotion to? Is it the “Virgin Mary” that is found in the Holy Bible or is it the Muslim “Virgin Mary”? If the Muslims do not believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God, then which Jesus Christ was it that came out of the womb of the “Virgin Mary”? Did Jesus the Son of God come out of the womb of the “Virgin Mary” or did the prophet Jesus, according to Islam, come out of the womb of the “Virgin Mary?” Was Jesus Christ the Son of God or was he not? Was Jesus Christ merely a prophet as the people of Islam teach? While we are on this topic, what does the Bible have to say about those who do not believe in the Son of God?

He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life: and he that believeth not the Son shall not see life; but the wrath of God abideth on him. (John 3:36)

He that believeth on the Son of God hath the witness in himself: he that believeth not God hath made him a liar; because he believeth not the record that God gave of his Son. And this is the record, that God hath given to us eternal life, and this life is in his Son. He that hath the Son hath life; and he that hath not the Son of God hath not life. (1 John 5:10-12)

The scriptures are very clear in their declaration that the wrath of God abides upon those who do not believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God. That would include the Muslims, as well as the people of Judaism (and many other religions too), who absolutely refuse to believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God. Eternal life belongs only to those who believe in the Lord Jesus Christ, as the Son of God, not merely a prophet as the Muslims teach and believe. The Roman Catholic church also mention the fact that Mary is found in the Islamic Koran:

“Since Vatican Council II, the Catholic Church recognizes that Muslims honour the Virgin mother of Jesus, Mary, and invoke her with piety. … Mary is mentioned various times in the Koran. Respect for her is so evident that when she is mentioned in Islam, it is usual to add ‘Alayha l-salam’ (‘Peace be upon her’). Christians also willingly join in this invocation. I must also mention those shrines dedicated to Mary which welcome both Muslims and Christians. In particular, here in Lebanon, how can we forget the shrine of Our Lady of Lebanon in Harissa?”

Satan clearly has his hand in this whole thing about a devotion to the “Virgin Mary.” He will do anything he can to get a person’s spiritual eyes off of Jesus Christ as being the only way of salvation. (Acts 4:10-12, John 14:6) What we are seeing take place before our eyes in this generation, is the giant sucking sound of a false unity with Rome at the head, and all the pieces are falling into place. Stay tuned to this blog for further updates according to the truth, which is found in the scriptures.

How Satan Is Still Using The Roman Catholic Charismatic Movement To Infiltrate The Christian Churches! (Rivers of Muddy Waters Are Flowing Everywhere)

I would like to talk to you today about the Roman Catholic charismatic movement, and how Satan has used, and still uses, that movement to enter the Christian churches. I want to tell you first of all that I certainly believe in the gifts of the Holy Spirit, and I find it utterly ridiculous for a person to even think that the “gifts of the Spirit” have ceased in our modern day. Remember this next statement that I am about to make here.

The Catholic Charismatic movement or renewal or whatever other tag you may want to use, is still one hundred percent Roman Catholic to it’s very core.

You need to know that because the modern day compromising “well known” Pastor is not going to tell you that. The compromising “well known” Pastor has already been swallowed up by the times, and with the wonderful “business perks” that come with “going along with the flow” of the muddy waters of the false unity movement. The adulation and praise, which they receive from their fellow compromisers is enough to keep them going from year to year, and they thrive on it all. They are not about to give up their pulpit, or face the guaranteed persecution which would definitely come from their “religious” peers, if they speak out against such things. Many people in their congregations can barely survive from paycheck to paycheck, yet the compromisers have no problem taking their money every week, while they go on their regular vacations, and return to their fancy expensive homes. Their yearly expense accounts rival the yearly salaries of many people in their churches. The compromisers have learned through experience, that most  of the people in their congregation will never  mention, or question, anything regarding Charismatic catholics, (and other cults) for fear of being tossed outside the “church.” In fact they will often frown upon those who speak out against that deceitful movement, and they hope that nobody else will raise their voice against them anymore. That type of thinking has the footprint of Satan on it, and the so called “watchmen” in the Christian churches have been silenced by their so called “anointed” leaders. It is almost as if they have been completely seduced, and have become “watchmen for the Devil” because they are truly protecting the “doctrines of devils”  (1 Timothy 4:1) that the Bible warned us about!

I came across an old article entitled “Deceptive Antics of the Catholic Charismatic Renewal: Father Expedicto of Mountain Sion and Christ the King Prayer Group” (Kizito Michael George Library, June 8, 2009)

….can a leopard change its spots..(Jeremiah 13:23)

Last Sunday on 7th June, 2009 at 2:00 pm I watched a very eloquent lady preacher on WBS TV . She was preaching on the holy spirit . I thought she was a pastor from one of the born again churches. She was really good . I was shocked to learn that she is from the catholic so called Christ the King Prayer group, Kampala. The catholic church is under panic . Many of its former faithfuls like my self have fled the satanic catholic church. In order to prevent further exodus from the catholic church , the church has started the so called charismatic renewal . This system of Satan has preachers who look to be born again. They now hide their rosaries and other catholic deco.. while on TV so that they are not easily recognized. I want to state categorically that these are liars, do not be part of them. You can not be born again and remain in the catholic satanic system. There is a place called Mount Zion prayer center under Fr. Expedito Magembe where so called born again catholics go to pray. They have really mastered what is going on in the Pentecostal churches and imitate it in order to keep catholics deceived. (Kizito Michael George Library, June 8, 2009)

Do you see how crafty the Devil is my friends? This man of God was originally interested in what this so called “anointed” woman was preaching, but when he searched further, he discovered the “footprint of Satan” was behind her “anointing.” Listen to what the man wrote: “This system of Satan has preachers who look to be born again. They now hide their rosaries and other catholic deco . . . while on TV so that they are not easily recognized.”  I praise God that the man preached the truth so clear and straight forward as he did. The man of God did the right thing according to the word of God, and he did not go into a song and dance routine, nor did he go on with the smooth talking, and hemming and hawing, which is heard so frequently in “Christian” churches today. 

My wife Cathy and I were delivered out of the deceitful Charismatic Catholic movement just about twenty five years ago. We would attend Catholic Charismatic “healing” masses where the Rosary would be prayed throughout the Catholic Mass. You must understand that the doctrines of the Roman Catholic charismatic movement are entirely Roman Catholic, which includes praying to Mary (Hail Mary prayers), praying to dead saints (necromancy), praying for the dead people in their Catholic Purgatory, and many other things. My precious and merciful Saviour Jesus Christ delivered us from that gross deception, and that is why I speak out against the Catholic system. Can you imagine sending a drug addict back to a drug den to get high again? Can you imagine sending an alcoholic back to the local saloon to get drunk again? Of course not, so then why would you want to allow a church which preaches a false gospel into your pulpits to preach to people who were delivered out from deception themselves?

When Cathy and I came to know the Lord, we tossed all of our Roman Catholic idolatrous things (including our Rosary beads) in a large green garbage bag, and out to the curb they went, (where they belong) because that is what the Lord led us to do! We were delivered from the superstition, and gross deception, of Roman Catholicism, and we are eternally grateful to the Lord for that! It was not a hard thing for us to do, because we simply read the scriptures and we obeyed the Lord! When you read the book of Acts you will find that the people who were into “curious arts” (magic) and witchcraft, repented of their evil deeds and ultimately burned their books, which were worth a lot of money. Those same people had just witnessed a demon possessed man attack a group of men who did not know the Lord. The demon possessed man told those who he attacked that he knew Jesus, and he knew Paul but he did not know them. The people were absolutely petrified when they saw that happen, and it worked for good, because they turned to the Lord and got saved.

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)

Can you imagine those same people going to a church, whose Pastor told them that they were having a visiting preacher who teaches about the “curious arts” and witchcraft, for a series of “renewal meetings”? Can you imagine that same Pastor, telling those same folks that the visiting preacher was a “man of God”, who really moves in the spirit? Would that not be insane? Well then, why is it that the modern day Pastors have no problem with the Roman Catholic charismatic movement which brings forth a false gospel? That is called spiritual insanity!

Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness? And what concord hath Christ with Belial? or what part hath he that believeth with an infidel? And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols? for ye are the temple of the living God; as God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people. Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you, And will be a Father unto you, and ye shall be my sons and daughters, saith the Lord Almighty. (2 Corinthians 6:14-18)

I thank God for raising up that man from Africa to warn the people of the deceptive antics of the Roman Catholic renewal. You are not going to hear that type of preaching in the modern day Penetecostal, Inter-Deneominational, and Non-Denominational churches, (especially in America), where the “rivers of muddy waters” are flowing freely, and where the Roman Catholic church enters in without resistance. I want you to know that these modern day compromisers are making light of God’s word, because they are allowing “doctrines of devils” (1 Timothy 4:1) inside, and telling the people that it is really no big deal at all. Christian, who are you going to obey men or God? If your Pastor or church leader is going against God’s word, then who do you think is the source of their so called anointing? Is it God or Satan? Even Peter knew enough to obey God rather than mere man!

Then Peter and the other apostles answered and said, We ought to obey God rather than men. (Acts 5:29)

If you click on the link to the Mount Zion prayer center (in that article) you will notice an image of “Mary” on the left side, which is an ad for “Radio Maria” where you can listen to prayers for “inner healing.” The greeting on the front page reads as follows:

Welcome to The Eucharistic Shrine Mt. Sion Prayer Centre Bukalango

We  are honored to welcome you to this Holy mountain, The Eucharistic Shrine, Mt. Sion Prayer Center Bukalango in Kampala Archdiocese Uganda.  This Prayer Center is dedicated to prayer and Eucharistic Adoration. Our mission is to provide a place of prayer and welcome so that people of God may come to visit and spend time with the Lord in the Blessed Sacrament in a Roman Catholic traditional setting. We invite you to come to know the shrine, our mission, and us.

Did you catch that folks? The prayer center is dedicated to prayer and “Eucharistic Adoration.” You may wonder what this  Eucharistic Adoration is all about. Well, that is when the Catholic people adore and worship the “Blessed Sacrament” which is simply the little communion wafer placed in the middle of the Roman Catholic monstrance. The Roman Catholics are taught, and they believe, that Jesus Christ himself is present “Body, Blood, Soul and Divinity” inside that little wafer host. In the photo below you can see a Roman Catholic priest, accompanied by altar boys, carrying the monstrance and the “Blessed Sacrament” in a procession through the streets of Charlotte, North Carolina, USA in 2005.

The Blessed Sacrament Being Carried Through Streets

The Blessed Sacrament Being Carried Through Streets

As a former Roman Catholic I can assure you that people actually kneel down and pray before the “Blessed Sacrament” as if they were praying before Jesus Christ himself. The Roman Catholics do not simply believe that the wafer Host represents Jesus Christ (like I do), but they believe that the wafer host IS ACTUALLY the BODY of Jesus Christ himself. Keep in mind here, that the wafer host I am talking about is a wafer thin piece of bread that remains bread UNTIL the Catholic priest (and him alone) consecrates the host during their Catholic Mass! As an altar boy I would watch as hundreds of these wafer hosts were removed from a plastic bag and placed inside a Brass chalice to get ready for the Catholic Mass.

Many of the true Christian reformers who stood against this FALSE teaching, were tortured and murdered by the Roman Catholic church, but you never hear anything about that anymore. The modern day church has been “sold down the river” by their compromising Pastors and ministers, many who were former Roman Catholics themselves.

The Roman Catholic charismatic people STILL BELIEVE in the “Blessed Sacrament” which I spoke about here, and if they say that they don’t, then they would not be considered a true Roman Catholic anymore. In fact if they disagree with the teaching on the “Blessed Sacrament” then they would place themselves under one of Rome’s many anathemas (curses) from the Council of Trent, and upheld by Vatican II. Please keep in mind that the church of Rome still teaches that their CHURCH, and their church ALONE, is the ONLY true Christian church in the world. How many times (if ever) have you heard your “anointed” Pastor warn you about the Roman Catholic church?  Probably none.

The teaching on the Roman Catholic Eucharist is something that the church of Rome will never change, and you will often hear the Pope preach about it. Listen to me folks, I am telling you to run from any type of unity with Rome before it is too late. You can read about what happened to the Swedish Pastor and leader, Ulf Ekman in another article on this website too. I believe in the coming days that there will be a few, (and I do mean few), charismatic leaders that will wake up before it is too late, but I believe that even they, will try to save face, after they admit that they were DECEIVED by Rome. The Roman Catholic church preaches a sacramental salvation which has kept people in bondage for centuries. The modern day “anointed” pastors and ministers are going to answer before Almighty God for their failure to warn the millions who sit inside their churches, and for joining hands with Rome, instead of shouting out a warning!

The False Church, The False Israel, And The Madness Of The Last Days

It is absolutely amazing when you take a look at what is happening in the world today, and I have to remind myself often that the Bible prophesied these things. The Jewish apostle Paul was speaking in the Spirit (Holy Spirit) when he wrote this:

Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times SOME shall DEPART from the FAITH, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils; (1 Timothy 4:1)

If the Spirit of God inspired Paul to warn us about those who would depart from the faith, then it IS going to happen even as it is written.

The Madness And Deception Of The Vatican And The Pope

I have been writing frequently about Pope Francis and his call for “Christian” unity, and many have fallen for that deception, and you can expect many more to follow them. What you are seeing in our present day is the formation of a church which masquerades as the true “Christian” church but it is anything but that. Did you know that the  previous Pope Pope Benedict XVI  entrusted the “church” and the whole world to “Mary’s maternal intercession.” I am not kidding you. Read it for yourself:

VATICAN CITY, 1 JUN 2011 (VIS) – The traditional procession and Rosary marking the end of the Marian month took place in the Vatican Gardens yesterday at 8:00 in the evening. The procession wound from the Church of St. Stephen of the Abyssinians to the Grotto of Our Lady of Lourdes .. . 

The Holy Father concluded by “entrusting the Church and the world to Mary’s maternal intercession”, asking for “the gift of always knowing how to embrace in our lives the lordship of the One who by his Resurrection conquered death”.

The Apostasy sirens are sounding once again! Are you still interested in bending your knee toward Rome? Do you still want to have “Christian” unity with a “church” that has been entrusted to Mary? The Pope before Benedict was Pope John Paul II and he entrusted all of Poland to Mary before he passed away! Are you spiritually strong enough to resist the seduction of Rome? My wife Cathy and I met a very nice Christian woman at a large church in Manhattan, and she told us that she had recently joined a prayer group, with a group of charismatic Roman Catholic ladies. As a former Catholic, who was part of the Catholic charismatic movement for a short season, I told her to be careful, because they would have her praying the rosary before she knew it. At that very moment, the woman told us that she felt sick, because they had already convinced her to pray the rosary along with them. If you are not familiar with the Roman Catholic rosary, it is a set of beads, with each bead representing a prayer, with most of them “Hail Mary” prayers to Mary. I prayed thousands of Hail Mary prayers in my life, and  the rosary was often prayed during the Catholic Charismatic Healing Masses that I attended. After I was saved and born again of the Spirit, I stopped praying my “Hail Mary” prayers, and I prayed through the ONLY true mediator, who is Jesus Christ!

For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus; (1 Timothy 2:5)

The Bible shows me that Jesus Christ NEVER entrusted his true church to Mary. Jesus Christ is the only head of the church, and the scriptures tell me that Jesus is making intercession for me and all my brothers and sisters in Christ! 

Who shall lay any thing to the charge of God’s elect? It is God that justifieth. Who is he that condemneth? It is Christ that died, yea rather, that is risen again, who is even at the right hand of God, who also maketh intercession for us. Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword? As it is written, For thy sake we are killed all the day long; we are accounted as sheep for the slaughter. Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us. For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord. (Romans 8:33-39)

If you search the scriptures you will not find anything that even remotely looks like the Vatican and the Catholic Church. You will not find Jesus, or his disciples ever mentioning praying to Mary or seeking her intercession. You will not find the disciples of Jesus ever mentioning the need for a Catholic Mass to satisfy the justice of God, for sins committed against him. No, they knew that the perfect sacrifice happened when Jesus Christ died on the cross. They were all about the preaching of the Gospel of Jesus Christ, and they did not even need a big building or Cathedral to do that. They knew that the true Body of Christ was a spiritual family, just like the Lord said. (Matthew 12:48-50) They were born again of the Spirit, and the Spirit of truth testified to them about Jesus (not Mary) (John 15:26, 16:13)  The idea of a Vatican with it’s own coin system, and it’s Swiss guards and buildings filled with idols would have been foreign to them. The idea of world leaders and politicians flocking to Rome to have “an audience” with the Pope would not be something that would have ever been associated with Biblical Christianity.

I posted another article about the previous Pope Benedict where the “Pope Declares Being Catholic Meant Belonging To Mary” just to show you the demonic stronghold that “Mary” has on the millions of Roman Catholic people. There are many articles on this blogsite about the falsehood of Rome including articles about the deception of the Catholic Mass, the more than 100 curses (anathemas) that the Church of Rome against Christians who disagree with their false teachings, the false teaching of Purgatory and more. The Roman Catholic church should wake up to the truth that there is a curse upon their false gospel, because the scriptures declare a curse upon all false gospels! (Galatians 1:8-9) It is downright scary that we are living in the day where ministers are being seduced by that false system. It was not too long ago (1986) when the the Roman Catholic Pope John Paul II gathered religious leaders from all over the world for his peace meeting at Assisi, Italy. There were people from Islam, Buddhism, “Christianity”, Judaism, Hinduism and even witchdoctors gathered to pray together to the “same God.” Pope John Paul II even smoked a peace pipe with the leaders at that meeting. I can only describe that as SPIRITUAL INSANITY! I have written in the past about the compromisers such as Billy Graham, Chuck Colson, Luis Palau, the TBN Network, and others and there is no question that they have influenced many millions in their own compromise with the very same issues. Did you know that you can actually purchase Catholic Rosary Beads at the so called “TBN Christian Network”?  The Spirit of the living God delivered my wife Cathy and I out from that very deception of Mary worship, and both of us were regular prayers of the rosary UNTIL the Lord saved our souls. Here is my testimony on VIDEO. Jesus told us to leave, and here is TBN selling that stuff in their online store! Sound the alarm for the sake of truth! Roman Catholicism is NOT of the Lord, but many have been seduced into believing that it is, because of the great inroads that Satan has made inside the church.

The Madness And Deception Of The Christian Zionism Movement

Have you ever watched, or participated in the annual CUFI (Christians United For Israel) meetings that are held in Washington D.C. At these meetings you are going to see people waving the State Flag of Israel along that with the American Flag. You will hear from speakers who are Jewish, but who still reject the Messiah named Jesus who was sent to save them. Is that an unequal yoking according to the scriptures? Of course it is. The Bible warns us about these things, but few ever listen to those biblical warnings, but instead they follow the crowds, somehow thinking that the majority cannot be wrong.

Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness? And what concord hath Christ with Belial? or what part hath he that believeth with an infidel? And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols? for ye are the temple of the living God; as God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people. Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you, And will be a Father unto you, and ye shall be my sons and daughters, saith the Lord Almighty. (2 Corinthians 6:14-18)

As far as I know, David Brog is a Jewish man who does not believe that Jesus Christ is the Messiah,  and he is the Executive Director of the CUFI organization. So here we have an UNSAVED Jewish man leading an organization that UNITES millions of “Christians” with the political State of Israel (mostly unbelievers). Isn’t that interesting? You cannot make this stuff up folks. There is a reason that the Bible puts forth scriptural warnings, BUT if you choose to ignore them, it is to your own peril. As far as I know, Benjamin Netanyahu, the Prime Minister of Israel, also rejects Jesus as being the Christ (Messiah), and he has spoken via Satellite to those gathered at different CUFI events. My Bible tells me that those who do NOT believe that Jesus Christ came in the flesh (and he did) is of an ANTICHRIST spirit, and both Mr Brog and Mr Netanyahu clearly fit that description.

Who is a liar but he that denieth that Jesus is the Christ? He is antichrist, that denieth the Father and the Son. (1 John 2:22)

Both David Brog and Mr Netanyahu deny that Jesus is the Christ (Messiah). Keep in mind that the word Christ means Messiah. They do not believe that Jesus is the Messiah, so therefore they DENY both the Father and the Son. The scriptures declare that those who DENY Jesus is the Messiah are liars! That also fits with the following scripture:

He that believeth on the Son of God hath the witness in himself: he that believeth not God hath made him a liar; because he believeth not the record that God gave of his Son. (1 John 5:10)

Do you still believe the scriptures? Do you consider yourself to be a Bible believing Christian? The well meaning Christians have no idea what they are getting themselves into here, in working with that spirit of antichrist. There is a betrayal of Jesus Christ going on in slow motion. We must never forget that the Lord Jesus Christ emptied his veins for the human race, and the Gospel was presented to the Jew first, according to the Jewish apostle Paul!

For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek (Gentile). (Romans 1:16)

And every spirit that confesseth not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is NOT OF GOD: and this is that spirit of antichrist, whereof ye have heard that it should come; and even now already is it in the world. (1 John 4:3)

Keep in mind that this does not only apply to David Brog and Benjamin Netanyahu but to EVERY Jewish and Gentile person (billions) who do not believe that Jesus Christ came down from Heaven, and was manifest in the flesh. The scriptures tell us that they are NOT of God. So the point that I make here, is that all of the hoopla that you are going to see at the CUFI meetings is NOT of God. It is a joining together with many people (both Jewish and Gentile) who do NOT believe Jesus is who he said he was! This is the very type of seduction that the Jewish apostle Paul warned us about!

Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils; (1 Timothy 4:1)

Somehow things got mixed up along the way because Christians should be preaching the gospel to David Brog and Benjamin Netanyahu, because they will die in their sins unless they turn to Jesus Christ for salvation. (John 8:24, 14:6, Acts 4:10-12)  David Brog and Benjamin Netanyahu both need to repent and believe in Jesus Christ, because the wrath of God is upon them! (John 3:36) Somehow I cannot picture true Christians such as the apostle Paul who was beaten to a pulp for preaching the Gospel to the Jewish people, sitting there at these CUFI meetings. I cannot picture the faithful Christian martyr Stephen being too comfortable at those CUFI meetings either: Listen to these words from the book of Acts from this Christian man Stephen, before the religious Jewish people killed him:

Ye stiffnecked and uncircumcised in heart and ears, ye do always resist the Holy Ghost: as your fathers did, so do ye. Which of the prophets have not your fathers persecuted? and they have slain them which shewed before of the coming of the Just One (Jesus); of whom ye have been now the betrayers and murderers: (Acts 7:51-52)

The true house and temple of God is a spiritual house with Jesus Christ being the chief cornerstone, and with every TRUE BELIEVER being a LIVING STONE within that very same Temple. It is ALL about Jesus Christ NOT Israel. When Israel REPENTS and turns to Jesus Christ just like the Lord commands them to do, then and ONLY then, will it be alright for them. Every person in the world has an EQUAL opportunity to become part of that same spiritual house and Temple. It does not matter what color your skin is, or whether you are a man or a woman, you are INVITED by the Lord, to COME on IN! How? Repent and believe the Gospel of Jesus Christ (Mark 1:15)

For the scripture saith, Whosoever believeth on him shall not be ashamed. For there is no difference between the Jew and the Greek: for the same Lord over all is rich unto all that call upon him. For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved. How then shall they call on him in whom they have not believed? and how shall they believe in him of whom they have not heard? and how shall they hear without a preacher? (Romans 10:11-14)

Did you read that ladies and gentlemen? The invitation is to both Jew and Gentile, and the Lord is RICH unto ALL that call upon HIM! There is endless supply of grace, mercy and salvation in the Lord’s supply house. The question is this: Do YOU truly want what the Lord has to offer to YOU? The MAJORITY of the people of the State of Israel (and the rest of the world) are NOT inside that spiritual temple yet! If you can picture a child building a house with those wooden “Lincoln Logs” you can get a picture of what the scriptures are telling us. The Lord is the very FOUNDATION and CORNERSTONE of the spiritual house and Temple of God, and the ONLY true Temple which is recognized by Almighty God. The Lord Jesus Christ is that corner “log” and every time a person gets saved through faith in Jesus Christ, they become another “log” added to the Lord’s spiritual house (temple). If a person has NEVER been born again of the Spirit of God, then they are NOT part of that spiritual house and temple. It is that simple. The Lord is concerned with SAVING souls, such as Mr Brog and Mr Netanyahu, because UNTIL they turn to Jesus Christ, the WRATH of God abides upon them! (John 3:36) According to the passage below Mr Brog and Mr Netanyah stumble at the Word of God, and are in DISOBEDIENCE to the Lord.

Ye also, as lively (living) stones, are built up a spiritual house, an holy priesthood, to offer up spiritual sacrifices, acceptable to God by Jesus Christ. Wherefore also it is contained in the scripture, Behold, I lay in Sion (Zion) a chief corner stone, elect, precious: and he that believeth on him shall not be confounded. Unto you therefore which believe he is precious: but unto them which be disobedient, the stone which the builders disallowed, the same is made the head of the corner, And a stone of stumbling, and a rock of offence, even to them which stumble at the word, being disobedient: whereunto also they were appointed. But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light: (1 Peter 2:5-9)

John Hagee who recently wrote a book telling us that the Jewish people did not reject the Messiah speaks often at the CUFI meetings. This is the same John Hagee who declared that it was a waste of time to try to convert a Jew! Here is an excerpt from the Christian Research Institute (DH005)

Trying to convert Jews is a “waste of time,” he [Hagee] said. . . .

Everyone else, whether Buddhist or Baha’i, needs to believe in Jesus, he says. But not Jews. Jews already have a covenant with God that has never been replaced with Christianity, he says.

 “The Jewish people have a relationship to God through the law of God as given through Moses,” Hagee said. “I believe that every Gentile person can only come to God through the cross of Christ. I believe that every Jewish person who lives in the light of the Torah, which is the word of God, has a relationship with God and will come to redemption.

 “The law of Moses is sufficient enough to bring a person into the knowledge of God until God gives him a greater revelation. And God has not,” said Hagee . . .9

All a person has to do is study the scriptures, especially the Book of Acts and you will find the true disciples of Jesus Christ preaching the Gospel the same way to both Jew and Gentile. We are truly living in amazing times, and  the anti-christ propaganda is moving at a rapid pace. I surely hope that the true Christians will begin to see what is happening before it is too late.

Why The Pope Is Not My “Holy Father” and Why He Should Not Be Your “Holy Father” Either!

As the Roman Catholic church continues to make great inroads into the Christian church with the Pope’s call for Christian unity, I thank God once again, that the Lord Jesus Christ saved me out of the gross deception and darkness of the Roman Catholic system. The Catholic Pope’s are often referred to as “His Holiness” or as the “Holy Father” but there is only ONE true “Holy Father,” and He is sitting in Heaven above. In fact if anyone claims to be a true Christian, then it is UNSCRIPTURAL to call any man their “Holy Father” other than God, because Jesus Christ told us the following:

But be not ye called Rabbi: for one is your Master, even Christ; and all ye are brethren. And call no man your father upon the earth: for one is your Father, which is in heaven. Neither be ye called masters: for one is your Master, even Christ. (Matthew 23:8-10)

You do not need to go any further than the word of God when it comes to one, and only true “Holy Father.” The words above were spoken by the Lord Jesus Christ and he said what he meant, and he meant what he said. It was an incredible joy when I was truly born again of the Spirit, and the Lord saved me out of the deception of the Roman Catholic system. I remember sitting at my kitchen table laughing hysterically as my mind was flooded with all of the religious ceremonies that I went through as a Catholic, and I realized that I did not need any of them! I know that it was the Lord who showed me these things also, because the peace of the Lord absolutely flooded my heart. 

I the LORD have called thee in righteousness, and will hold thine hand, and will keep thee, and give thee for a covenant of the people, for a light of the Gentiles; To open the blind eyes, to bring out the prisoners from the prison, and them that sit in darkness out of the prison house. (Isaiah 42:6-7)

I was sitting in the darkness of the prison house of sin, until the Lord opened my spiritual eyes to the deception that I was in. To make it plain and simple folks, I was on my way to a real and eternal Hell, until the Lord Jesus Christ saved my soul. I am simply one of the countless millions of Gentiles, whom the Lord spoke about in that passage, from the book of Isaiah. I was spiritually blind, but the Lord Jesus Christ opened my spiritual eyes to see him for who he truly was. I came to understand that Jesus Christ, was given for a COVENANT for both Jew and Gentile. The NEW Covenant is in the blood of Jesus Christ, and the blood that he shed almost 2000 years ago is enough to save any soul. Mary and the Catholic saints have absolutely nothing to do with that, and they never even enter into the equation. I do not have to return to have a Catholic priest say a Mass for the forgiveness of my sins either. As a Roman Catholic I was serving “another Jesus” and it was certainly NOT, the Jesus of the scriptures.

But I fear, lest by any means, as the serpent beguiled Eve through his subtilty, so your minds should be corrupted from the simplicity that is in Christ. For if he that cometh preacheth another Jesus, whom we have not preached, or if ye receive another spirit, which ye have not received, or another gospel, which ye have not accepted, ye might well bear with him. (2 Corinthians 11:3-4)

The Jewish apostle Paul came forth with a severe warning to the true church about those who would come along and preach another Jesus, another Spirit and another gospel, and I believe that the Roman Catholic church fits that bill perfectly. For years I was enmeshed in the idolatry of Mary worship, prayers to dead saints, prayers for the dead people in Purgatory etc . . but never once did I hear the soul saving gospel of Jesus Christ preached. Not even once! Why was that? Simply because you cannot give out, that which you do not have yourself! The Jewish apostle Paul came to know the Lord Jesus Christ for himself and he testified about that in the book of Acts.

Whereupon as I went to Damascus with authority and commission from the chief priests, At midday, O king, I saw in the way a light from heaven, above the brightness of the sun, shining round about me and them which journeyed with me. And when we were all fallen to the earth, I heard a voice speaking unto me, and saying in the Hebrew tongue, Saul, Saul, why persecutest thou me? it is hard for thee to kick against the pricks. And I said, Who art thou, Lord? And he said, I am Jesus whom thou persecutest. But rise, and stand upon thy feet: for I have appeared unto thee for this purpose, to make thee a minister and a witness both of these things which thou hast seen, and of those things in the which I will appear unto thee; Delivering thee from the people, and from the Gentiles, unto whom now I send thee, To open their eyes, and to turn them from darkness to light, and from the power of Satan unto God, that they may receive forgiveness of sins, and inheritance among them which are sanctified by faith that is in me. (Acts 26:12-18)

The Jewish apostle Paul had no idea that he was living in spiritual deception, and on the road to Hell until the Lord opened his spiritual eyes. Paul (formerly called Saul) studied the scriptures diligently, but his intelligence was not enough to point him to the true Christ (Messiah). Jesus Christ spoke to Saul (Paul) out of Heaven and told him that he was persecuting him, when he came against Christians. I thank God that the Lord saved that man and called him to preach the true Gospel to multitudes. The scriptures make it abundantly clear that those without Jesus Christ are living in darkness, and that they are under the power of Satan. Every person (including myself), that has ever been truly saved, and born again of the Spirit was formerly living in darkness, under the power of Satan. If they do not agree with that, then I can assure you that they have never been truly born again and saved. The true Jesus Christ, the true Holy Spirit, and the true gospel, are all part of the same package deal, and the only way to true salvation. I have been warning Christian friends for many years about the coming false unity with Rome, but it is sad to say, that most of the time it has fallen upon deaf ears. A recent article in Charisma Today entitled “Ulf Ekman Says prophetic Word Confirms His Catholic Conversion” only confirms what I have been trying to tell them.

Here is what Pastor Ulf Ekman said in an excerpt taken from that article:

“We don’t think highly or with great confidence about ourselves in this matter,” Ulf says. “We come because we need what Jesus has placed in the Catholic Church. I need the sacraments, I need the magisterium, the authority of the Church. I need the pope. I need the tradition that they steward. I need the Church for my own salvation. So it’s deeply personal.” 

It is kind of funny, but incredibly sad to read such stuff, because it was the the prophetic truth of the scriptures that pulled me out of the Roman Catholic church. The Lord Jesus Christ showed me that I do NOT need the Pope, the Catholic magisterium (teaching office), the authority of Rome, the Catholic sacraments, NOR the Roman Catholic church for my own salvation! The Lord Jesus Christ showed me that HE is ALL I need. I choose to stand with the faithful men of God, who opposed Rome and her false gospel. That list includes people such as, William Tyndale, John Huss, Michael Sattler, Keith Green and Leonard Ravenhill. There will be many people in the coming days who are going to bend their knee to Rome, and I am praying that the Lord would raise up people in the pulpits who would stand against that false religious system.

Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils; (1 Timothy 4:1)

But evil men and seducers shall wax worse and worse, deceiving, and being deceived. (2 Timothy 3:13)

But there were false prophets also among the people, even as there shall be false teachers among you, who privily shall bring in damnable heresies, even denying the Lord that bought them, and bring upon themselves swift destruction. And many shall follow their pernicious ways; by reason of whom the way of truth shall be evil spoken of. (2 Peter 2:1-2)

Kenneth Copeland Honors Pope’s Call For Christian Unity, As Pope Francis Speaks Via Video At Copeland Conference

Here is a statement from Kenneth Copeland, which can be found on the Kenneth Copeland website, where the Roman Catholic Pope Francis continues his call for Christian unity. You can also find the video on Kenneth Copeland’s website right here.

Recently, I received a message from Pope Francis in which he asked that, as a ministry and part of the Body of Christian believers, we pray for him. In 1 Timothy 2:2, the Bible teaches that we are to pray “for all that are in authority.” It is scriptural that we do so. And, therefore, it is our duty to honor the Pope’s request and, as a Body of believers, join our faith with his by coming together in unity and agreeing with him in his quest, and for what is in his heart: the unity of the Body of Christ.  So, in obedience to our Lord and His Word, we join our faith with that of Pope Francis as we pray with and for him, that he will receive the righteous desire of his heart, according to the words of Jesus in Mark 11:24: “That whatsoever things you desire when you pray, believe you receive them, and you shall have them.”  Our desire, along with that of Pope Francis, is in the fourth chapter of the book of Ephesians: “Till we all come in the unity of the faith and of the knowledge of the Son of God unto a mature man unto the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ.” This is very important to us all, as the Body of Christ.

The recorded video from Pope Francis was shown at a Kenneth Copeland gathering and played “live” at that meeting. During the video the Roman Catholic Pope mentions a man by the name of Tony Palmer, who he has known for years. Tony Palmer is an Episcopal priest, and he spoke at the same Copeland conference where this video was shown. In the video the Catholic Pope uses the story about Joseph and his brothers, in his appeal for Christian unity.

I believe that this is where many Christians are going to be seduced in these last days. As a former Roman Catholic I can assure you that millions are being hoodwinked, and set up up for big trouble, as they seek to have unity with the Roman Catholic system which preaches a false gospel. The Pope told the Christians at the Kenneth Copeland conference that he was speaking to them “as a brother.” (5:01 into the video) The Catholic Pope also said this one minute later into the video (6:01):

“And lets pray to the Lord He unites us all, Come on we are brothers.”

The false unity alarms are ringing louder than ever before, ladies and gentlemen. This reminds me of the time that Billy Graham met with Pope John Paull II at the Papal apartments at the Vatican, which was described in a Christianity Today editorial:

“Billy Graham had never met a pope until John Paul II invited him to Rome in 1981. Ushered into the papal apartments by the Vatican’s famous Swiss Guard, Graham marveled at the pomp. He and the pope chatted like long-lost friends for half an hour, swapping photos, gifts, and travel stories. Before Graham left, John Paul II reached over, clutched Graham’s thumb, and told him, “We are brothers.” [Christianity Today, May 24, 2005]

I want you to see the next paragraph from that editorial from Christianity Today, because it reveals much.

“Graham revealed nothing of the pope’s message in 1981. At the time of their meeting, John Paul II had been pope less than three years. An assertion of spiritual kinship would have been ill received by the bulk of both their constituencies. But by 1990, when Graham related this story to Time journalist David Aikman, the climate had changed considerably. Key to the thaw were John Paul II’s efforts to beat back communism worldwide.” [Christianity Today, May 24, 2005]

The article said that Billy Graham did not reveal the details of his meeting with the Pope, until many years later when the “climate had changed.” Folks it takes time for the Devil’s leaven to work it’s way into the true church of God. The Devil is not in a rush, and you are beginning to see the manifestation of the Devil’s work bloom forth now in these last days. The “wolves in sheep’s clothing” are beginning to show themselves for what they truly are. 

There are millions of Christians that have a nostalgic and sentimental view of Billy Graham, but I am not numbered among that group. If a man joins hands with a system such as Roman Catholicism, then he is not my brother in the Lord. Why? Because the Lord by His Spirit saved my soul out of that demonic system. That is where the rubber meets the road. A person has to make a decision as to whether the words of Billy Graham are true regarding the Roman Catholic church, or whether the scriptures tell the truth about the church of Rome. The road to Rome is a slippery slope, and before you know it you will find yourself joining hands with a system that you would never have dreamed of joining, when you first got saved! Once again I encourage you all to watch the video “Satan’s Masterpiece: The Roman Catholic Church” to get a better understanding of what I am talking about here.

I was not a born again Bible believing Christian during the time when Kathryn Kuhlman was a well known preacher, but I did read about her gross compromise with the Roman Catholic church. Kathryn Kuhlman used to allow Roman Catholic Priests and Nuns to regularly sit up on the platform with her, with no resistance from the true Christians. Well known preachers never said a peep about her compromise, and many (most) had no problem with it at all. Nothing has changed in the past 50 years.

The Roman Catholic Pope also said this:

“Lets give each other a spiritual hug and let God complete the work that He has begun”

When I see the Pope repent of the myriad of Rome’s false teachings, which include the teaching that the Catholic Mass satisfies the justice of God for sins committed against him, the false teachings of Purgatory, Mary worship, and being born again, I might think about giving him a “spiritual hug.” In fact I will tell you that any Christian who has no problem with the false teaching of the Roman Catholic Mass, is in defiance to the Lord Jesus Christ himself! Either Jesus paid the price in FULL on the cross or he did not. (Romans 5:6-9) Every true Christian has a choice to make. If you believe that the Roman Catholic Mass satisfies the justice of God, then by all means, please go running back to Rome as fast as you can. If you reject that false teaching, then take a stand for the gospel of Jesus Christ for once in your life, and have nothing to do with it! Do not be a weasel when it comes to things like this. The Roman Catholic Pope also needs to repent of the murder of countless Christians, who were put to death for standing against his church and their false teachings. There will be no spiritual hugs from me until then.

“And this is a miracle; the miracle of unity has begun.” (6:20 into the video)

The Pope then quotes a man by the name of Manzoni:

“I’ve never seen God begin a miracle without Him finishing it well” (Manzoni)

“He will complete this miracle of unity” (Pope Francis)

I agree with that quote, and when I see the Pope throw off those religious garments, and centuries of false teachings, which have led to the damnation of countless millions of souls, then I will receive it as a true miracle from God!

“From Brother to Brother. I embrace you. Thank you.”

The Roman Catholic Pope Francis is not my Christian brother in the Lord Jesus Christ.

The Pope’s message at the Kenneth Copeland conference ends at about 7:01 into the video and then Kenneth Copeland gets back on the stage to pray for the Pope. I believe that millions will be swallowed up by Rome’s false “Christian” unity call, and it has been that way for decades. The majority of Pastors, preachers and ministers throughout the USA and the rest of the world have done absolutely nothing, to stem the tide of this “false unity movement” either. Only time will tell where this whole mess is going to end up, but do not sign me up for the Pope’s brotherhood. There has always been a true Christian unity by the power of the Holy Spirit, and that same Holy Spirit will never point a person to join hands with the false teachings of Rome.

Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will shew you things to come. (John 16:13)

But ye have an unction from the Holy One, and ye know all things. (1 John 2:20)

Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves. (Matthew 7:15)

Former Senior Pastor Ulf Ekman Converts To Roman Catholicism (Absolutely Incredible You Must Read This!)

Charisma magazine reported today (March 9, 2014), that Ulf Ekman and his wife have converted to Roman Catholicism. Here is an excerpt from that news report.

“During his Sunday morning service, Ulf Ekman announced the he and his wife, Birgitta, are converting to Roman Catholicism. Ekman is the founder of Word of Life, a megachurch in Uppsala, Sweden. Newsreports and blogs coming out of the nation reveal congregation was “partially stunned” after hearing what was packaged as a “special announcement.” The theme was “follow the Lamb wherever He goes.”

“We have seen a great love for Jesus and a sound theology, founded on the Bible and classic dogma. We have experienced the richness of sacramental life. We have seen the logic in having a solid structure for priesthood, that keeps the faith of the church and passes it on from one generation to the next. We have met an ethical and moral strength and consistency that dare to face up to the general opinion, and a kindness towards the poor and the weak. And, last but not least, we have come in contact with representatives for millions of charismatic Catholics and we have seen their living faith.” [Ulf Ekman Converts to Roman Catholicism/Charisma Magazine/Jennifer Leclaire]

I first heard about this man Ulf Ekman several years ago, and I wrote a False Unity Alert about him, but I must say, that I have not been following that story. I came across an old article today from the “Aletheia Blogg and TankesMedja” Website from November 2010, and I encourage you to read this EXCELLENT ARTICLE for yourself. Just in case you do not have the time to read the article, here is an excerpt that should get your attention:

“For the past four years many members, former members and bible school students of the Word of Life church in Sweden, pastored by Ulf Ekman, has expressed a growing concern about Ulf Ekmans fascination with Roman Catholicism.  Although Ekman himself claims his calling remains the same as before – to teach the Word of faith message in Sweden and around the world, many have noted a gradual change at the church, once so radically teaching an evangelical message.  During the peak of what many Swedes perceived as a spiritual revival or renewal, Word of Life was freed of icons, crucifixes and religious symbols, reminding us of the heavy yoke of Catholicism.  The congregation was clearly wanting to be an extension of the reformation and all the revivalist teachers thats followed in it’s path.

Little by little teaching against the Maria cult, papism and traditions of men has been removed from Word of Life bookshelves and replaced by newer more catholic-friendly material.  Ulf Ekmans earlier book on the subject ”Doctrines” with a clear stance against the Roman Catholic influence in Christianity has been replaced with a newer revised Catholic-friendly edition.  Trips to Rome are being arranged by key ministers in the congregation and Ulf Ekman himself is flirting openly with both traditional Catholic leaders and Catholic Charismatic movement representatives around the world.

As our only two Swedish Christian newspapers are silent in this matter (one of them Ekman controlled), conversations  about what is happening at Word of Life has moved to chats among members, supporters and former supporters, blogs and other internet forums.  Perhaps the conversations partially got started after information leaked a few years back that a large donation was given by Mr and Mrs Ekman to Enhetens Kyrka (”Church of Unity”) an organisation that has pledged to gather all Christians under the Popes authority.  When the senior Pastor (Mr Ekman) sold his house last year the Real Estate pictures on the internet (now removed) showed religious icons in nearly every room of the Ekman villa, to the surprise of many evangelicals in Sweden.” [Pastor Ulf Ekmans Fascination with Roman Catholicism Grows stronger/November 2010]

I was not the least surprised by what I read in the Charisma magazine article this morning, but I still find it incredible that so few of the so called “anointed preachers” speak out. My respect for the modern day, well known “popular Pastors”, “anointed ministers” and “book authors” has reached an all time low. I find it incredible that so many who love to talk about prophecy, the “antichrist,”  Israel, and the end times, never utter a word against the false system of Roman Catholicism. As a former Roman Catholic I can tell you that the spirit behind the fascination with the Catholic Mass, Mary worship, idols, Rosary Beads, and unity under the Pope is definitely NOT the Holy Spirit, but it is totally demonic in origin. Do you think for one minute that the Devil is going to come along with little red horns sticking out of his head, to tell you that he is here to deceive you? No, the Devil uses real people with his false teachings to seduce people away from the Lord. That is why the Jewish apostle Paul spoke and warned the way that he did!

Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils; (1 Timothy 4:1)

For such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into the apostles of Christ. And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light. Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also be transformed as the ministers of righteousness; whose end shall be according to their works. (2 Corinthians 11:13-15)

A Christian woman quoted part of that last passage to my wife Cathy, and the Lord used it to bring Cathy and myself, out of the demonic deception of Mary worship! I thank God that he saved our souls, and we both appreciate the blood of Jesus Christ more than ever. (Romans 5:6-9) I thank God that we have been born again of the Spirit of God, and set free from the hellish and demonic deception which is found in the church of Rome. (John 3:1-8)

The Jewish apostle Paul knew how to deal with deception when it came into the church at Galatia. Listen to what he told them:

Ye did run well; who did hinder you that ye should not obey the truth? This persuasion cometh not of him that calleth you. A little leaven leaveneth the whole lump. (Galatians 5:7-9)

Paul knew that it did not take much for a little leaven to permeate the entire lump. Take some leaven and knead it into the dough, and you will not even notice it, but it will do it’s job, and the whole batch of dough will be effected by the leaven, and cause it to rise! When the false teachers and their false teachings are ignored, and permitted to permeate a body of believers, the whole congregation will be effected by those demonic teachings. The false teachers are permitted to rise up, and persuade the people that there is nothing wrong, and many poor souls are deceived in the process. I encourage you to view the video “Satan’s Masterpiece: The Roman Catholic Church” for a very basic teaching about the false doctrines of the Roman Catholic Church. Paul was adamant and he wanted to know who got in there and persuaded the church at Galatia, that they should not obey the truth. Paul was dealing with the Judaizing Christians who had gotten inside the church at Galatia, and mixed their Jewish traditions with the gospel of Jesus Christ. Paul even rebuked Peter to his face because he was leading his own followers in the wrong direction with his hypocrisy. That should be a warning for the whole bunch of us folks. If Peter could be pulled away from the truth, what makes you think that you cannot be deceived? Think about it for a moment if you will. Peter was an eyewitness to tons of the most incredible miracles that Jesus Christ ever did. He saw the blind receive their sight. He saw the hearing restored to the deaf. He saw the Lord command a raging storm to stop. He saw tons of people delivered from demons. He was one of three (Peter, James, and John) who was on the mountain top when the Lord was transfigured before their eyes. On that mountaintop he also saw Moses and Elijah talk to Jesus about his upcoming death at Jerusalem. Peter then denied the Lord and the Lord was crucified and rose again. Peter saw the risen Lord who forgave him and personally told him to feed his sheep. BUT then Peter was put in a position where the religious Jews came into town, and he had a decision to make. He did not want to offend them, so he pulled away from the Gentiles and marched toward the Judaizers. Paul saw what happened and the scriptures tell us this:

But when Peter was come to Antioch, I withstood him to the face, because he was to be blamed. For before that certain came from James, he did eat with the Gentiles: but when they were come, he withdrew and separated himself, fearing them which were of the circumcision. And the other Jews dissembled likewise with him; insomuch that Barnabas also was carried away with their dissimulation (Hypocrisy). But when I saw that they walked not uprightly according to the truth of the gospel, I said unto Peter before them all, If thou, being a Jew, livest after the manner of Gentiles, and not as do the Jews, why compellest thou the Gentiles to live as do the Jews? We who are Jews by nature, and not sinners of the Gentiles, Knowing that a man is not justified by the works of the law, but by the faith of Jesus Christ, even we have believed in Jesus Christ, that we might be justified by the faith of Christ, and not by the works of the law: for by the works of the law shall no flesh be justified. But if, while we seek to be justified by Christ, we ourselves also are found sinners, is therefore Christ the minister of sin? God forbid. For if I build again the things which I destroyed, I make myself a transgressor. (Galatians 2:11-18)

Who knows how far Peter might have gone off if it were not for the Jewish apostle Paul. Who knows how far the modern day church is going to go before this whole thing wraps up?

Why Every True Born Again, Bible-Believing Christian, Should Reject The Pope’s Latest Call For “Christian” Unity

Once again the Roman Catholic Pope is calling for Christian Unity according to a report from the Vatican Information Service which you can read here:  [THE POPE TO THE WORLD COUNCIL OF CHURCHES: TAKE THE PATH TO FULL COMMUNION WITHOUT FEAR Vatican City, 7 March 2014 (VIS)] 

So once again I am calling for all true born again Christians to run from the Pope’s call for Christian unity, because there cannot be a Christian unity with a system that preaches a false gospel such as Rome does. I speak as a former Roman Catholic, and it was the Lord Jesus Christ who set me free from what Leonard Ravenhill called “the greatest forgery that Lucifer ever made.” (Why Revival Tarries, by Leonard Ravenhill) The Lord Jesus Christ saved my soul out of the darkness and gross deception of the Roman Catholic church in 1989 and I have never looked back. It never ceases to amaze me how the modern day church continues to flirt with a system that is so contrary to God’s Word. I put together a short video recently entitled “Satan’s Masterpiece: The Roman Catholic Church”, which is not hard to understand, and I compare Rome’s false teachings with the truth from the scriptures. I did that video simply because of what is happening in the modern day church world. I have written about the compromise of people such as Billy Graham and Luis Palau simply because the apostasy is so blatant and done without any opposition. It boggles my mind that Luis Palau worked hand in hand with the Roman Catholic church, to the point where they allowed Catholic priests to hear confessions, and distribute Rosary Beads at a crusade in Omaha, Nebraska. Read about it HERE.  That truly shows me, that many in the modern day church are simply playing religious games, and dragging souls to Hell in the process.

The Roman Catholic church preaches a false gospel, and the Lord Jesus Christ does not have his hand upon that false system. It is a humongous political religious system that is filled with man-made, and demonic traditions, with the Catholic mass at the very core. A person does not have to be a theologian, or be a graduate of a seminary to understand that, they only need to be born again of the Spirit. You will hardly ever hear anything spoken against Rome from your pulpit on Sunday morning because most of the modern day “church” has been vacuumed into believing that everything is alright. Do not ever forget that the Holy Spirit is the Spirit of truth, and he will never approve a false gospel especially the gospel that flows from Rome. We must not forget the genuine, and great men of God, which includes people such as John Wycliffe, William Tyndale and Michael Sattler who were put to death by the church of Rome, because they refused to comply with Rome’s false teachings. In fact, we would not have a Bible in our hands if it were not for people like them, and many others, who sacrificed their lives, to get the scriptures into the hands of the common man. I would highly recommend that Pope Francis take a couple of months off to read Foxes Book of Martyrs, and Martyr’s Mirror before he dares to make another call for Christian unity. Why do I say that? Because the Church of Rome still preaches and teaches the same doctrine that those great men of God opposed! 

Here are some excerpts from Foxe’s Book of Martyrs by John Foxe.

John Wycliffe (spelled John Wickliff in the Old english style.) is the first one that I will look at here. I want you to know that the Roman Catholic church not only killed this man, but the Catholic Pope exhumed his body 44 years after he died and burnt his bones! Folks that is absolutely incredible, and it shows you that they were being controlled by Satan, the father of lies! How could anybody possibly think that they were serving the true and living God, and do something like that? That is what is known as spiritual madness and insanity! At the same time it shows us what a powerful Christian testimony John Wycliffe had, that he could still upset the demons of Hell, 44 years after he died! Glory to the Lamb of God!!

Through God’s providence stepped forth into the arena the valiant champion of the truth, John Wickliff, our countryman, whom the Lord raised up here in England, to detect more fully and amply the poison of the Pope’s doctrine and false religion. [Foxe’s Book of Martyrs p49]

Articles collected out of Wickliff’s sermons [Foxe’s Book of Martyrs p57] 

The holy eucharist, after the consecration, is not the very body of Christ.

The Church of Rome is not the head of all churches more than any other church is; nor that Peter had any more power given of Christ than any other apostle had.

The Pope of Rome hath no more in the keys of the Church than hath any other within the order of the priesthood.

The Gospel is a rule sufficient of itself to rule the life of every Christian man here, without any other rule.

All other rules, under whose observances divers religious persons be governed, do add no more perfection to the Gospel, than doth the white color of the wall.

Neither the Pope, nor any other prelate of the church, ought to have prisons wherein to punish transgressors.

John Wycliffe spoke the truth without reservation and it cost him his very life. If you are a true Christian I want to inform you today that the Church of Rome has not changed their teachings one drop since the time of John Wycliffe!

They still believe that the Pope is the head of the church.

They still believe that the sacrifice of the Mass satisfies the justice of God for sins committed against him.

They still believe in a non-existent, make believe place called Purgatory.

They still put Mary on a pedestal that God never put her on.

They still have Catholic Masses said for both the living and the dead.

They still pray for the lost souls that are in Purgatory.

And you still have the Roman Catholic Pope calling for Christian unity.

Here is what Pope Francis said in his call for unity:

If Christians ignore the Lord’s call to unity, they risk ignoring the Lord Himself and the salvation He offers through His Body, the Church: ‘there is salvation in no one else, for there is no other name … by which we must be saved.’” [THE POPE TO THE WORLD COUNCIL OF CHURCHES: TAKE THE PATH TO FULL COMMUNION WITHOUT FEAR Vatican City, 7 March 2014 (VIS)]

I cannot believe the utter audacity, and gall of this man, Pope Francis (Jorge Bergoglio) to make such a statement! The Lord Jesus Christ, through the POWER of the Holy Spirit, PULLED ME OUT of the gross wickedness, and deception of Roman Catholicism, and now he is telling Christians to unite with them! Listen to the words of the Pope as he tells the Christian, that we “risk ignoring the Lord himself and the salvation He offers through His Body, the Church . . .” I would like to say to the Pope that I was ignoring the Lord the whole time that I was inside the false system of Roman Catholicism, with their demonic man-made traditions, and it was the LORD JESUS CHRIST (Glory to His Name), who encouraged me to leave immediately!

Here is an excerpt from Martyr’s Mirror an extremely large volume which contains the accounts of many who were put to death because they refused the false teachings of Rome! Michael Sattler was another genuine and true man of God. He stood against the church of Rome and it cost him his very life. These were the charges that were held against Michael Sattler: 

First, that he and his adherents have acted contrary to the mandate of the Emperor.

Secondly, he has taught, held and believed that the body and blood of Christ are not present in the sacrament.

Thirdly, he has taught and believed that infant baptism does not conduce to salvation.

Fourthly, they have rejected the sacrament of extreme unction.

Fifthly, they have despised and condemned the mother of God and the saints.

Sixthly, he has declared that men are not to swear before the authorities.

Seventhly, he has commenced a new and unheard of custom in regard to the Lord’s Supper, placing the bread and wine on a plate, and eating and drinking the same.

Eighthly, he has left the order, and married a wife.

Ninthly, he has said that if the Turks should invade the country, no resistance ought to be offered them; and if it were right to wage war, he would rather take the field against the Christians than against the Turks; and it is certainly a great matter, to set the greatest enemies of our holy faith against us.

Once again I must emphasize here, that the false teachings that Michael Sattler stood against are the same teachings that are believed, and taught, by the Roman Catholic church today! It is so very clear that there is little to no resistance in the modern day church, and the martyrs from the past are probably rolling over in their graves. Who would ever think that there could be such a political religious system, with it’s base in Vatican City, where Presidents and leaders from all over the world run like lapdogs to have an audience with the Pope? Folks it is something that is supernatural, and it is something that is totally demonic at it’s root, and you need to be aware of that in the days ahead.

Here is an excerpt from the conversation between the Roman Catholic church hierarchy and Michael Sattler a gentle born again believer.

Town Clerk, “You arch-heretic, you have seduced the pious; if they would only now forsake their error, and accept grace.”

Michael: “Grace is with God alone.”

One of the prisoners also said, “We must not depart from the truth.”

Town Clerk: “You desperate villain and archheretic, I tell you if there were no hangman here, I would hang you myself, and think that I had done God service.”

Michael:. “God will judge aright.”

The town clerk then admonished the judges and said: -”He will not cease from this talk today; therefore my Lord judge, proceed with the sentence; I will commit -it to the law.”

The judge asked Michael Sattler whether he also committed it to the law.

He replied, “Ye ministers of God, I am not sent to judge the Word of God; we are sent to bear witness of it, and, hence, cannot consent to any law, since we have no command from God concerning it; but if we can not be discharged from the law, we are ready to suffer for the Word of God whatever sufferings are, or may be imposed upon us all for the sake of the faith in Christ Jesus our Saviour, as long as we have breath within us; unless we be dissuaded from it by the Scriptures.”

The town clerk said, “The hangman shall convince you; he shall dispute with you, arch-heretic.”

Michael: .”I appeal to the Scriptures.”

Then the judges arose, and went into another room, where they remained for an hour and a.half, and determined on the sentence. Matt. 6:10; John 16:2; I Cor. 4:5; John 1:8; Job 27:3.; Acts 25:11.

In the meantime, some in the room treated Michael Sattler most unmercifully, heaping reproach upon him. One of them said, “What have you in expectation -for yourself and the others, that you have so seduced them?” With this, he also drew forth a sword which lay upon the table, saying, “See, with this shall they dispute with thee.” But Michael did not answer. upon a single word concerning his person, but willingly endured it all. One of the prisoners said, “We must not cast pearls before swine.” Matt. 27:14; 7:6.

Being-also asked, why he had not remained a lord in the convent, Michael answered, “According to the flesh I was a lord; but it is better so.” He did not say more than what is recorded here, and this he spoke fearlessly.

The judges having returned to the room, the sentence was read.

It was as follows, “In the case of the Governor of his Imperial Majesty versus Michael Sattler, judgment is passed, that Michael Sattler shall be delivered to ‘the executioner, who shall lead him to the place of execution, and cut out his tongue; then throw him upon a wagon, and there tear his body twice with red hot tongs; and after he has been brought without the gate, he shall be pinched five times in the same manner.”

After this had been done in the manner prescribed, he was burned to ashes as a heretic. His fellow brethren were executed with the sword, and the sisters drowned. His wife, also; after being subjected to many entreaties, admonitions and threats, under which she remained very steadfast,was drowned a few days afterwards. Done the 21st day of May, A. D. 1527.

I quote Keith Green often, and I am compelled to quote him one again, and this is what my dear Christian brother Keith had to say about the Roman Catholic Church:

“To merely call such a system “a CULT”, would be to throw it into the vast category of religions and quasi-religions that are currently making the rounds of our college campuses and city streets, snatching up many an unsuspecting youth. No, the Roman Church is not a cult. IT’S AN EMPIRE!” With its own ruler, its own laws, and its own subjects! The empire has no borders, it encompasses the globe with its eye on every person who does not vow allegiance. It calls the members of other faiths “SEPARATED BRETHREN” (The term used by Vatican II to describe the members of Eastern Orthodox, Anglican, and Protestant churches.) and has as its goal the eventual bringing together of EVERYONE UNDER IT’S FLAG.

I know that many will not be convinced or moved by this article (or any of the others) to make such a conclusion. They are impressed by what they’ve heard about recent stirrings among the Catholics in the “charismatic renewal”. Many evangelicals (especially Charismatics) have been thrilled by the reports of Catholics speaking in tongues, dancing in the Spirit, having nights of joy and praise, even attending “charismatic masses”. Mouths that used to speak out boldly against the Church of Rome have been quieted by the times. It no longer is in vogue to speak of the pope as “the antichrist” (Although the following people unhesitatingly did: Martin Luther, John Bunyan, John Huss, John Wycliffe, John Calvin, William Tyndale, John Knox, Thomas Bacon, John Wesley, Samuel Cooper, John Cotton, and Jonathan Edwards.) Now Protestants unwittingly believe that “our differences are not so great”. Ah, that is just what She needs us to think!

I’ve never completely understood why God led me to write these articles. But it becomes more clear with each day of study, and each page of research. Never has something so black and wicked, gotten away with appearing so holy and mysteriously beautiful . . . for so long!” [Keith Green - The Catholic Chronicles]

Is Your Name Written Down In Heaven’s Book of Life or Will You Be Cast Into the Lake of Fire?

Did you know that every true believer has their name written in Heaven? The Bible makes it clear:

But ye are come unto mount Sion (Zion), and unto the city of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem, and to an innumerable company of angels, To the general assembly and church of the firstborn, which are written in HEAVEN, and to God the Judge of all, and to the spirits of just men made perfect, And to Jesus the mediator of the new covenant, and to the blood of sprinkling, that speaketh better things than that of Abel. (Hebrews 12:22-24)

The true believers in Jesus Christ (both Jew and Gentile) already have their names written in Heaven, because they have been born again of the Spirit of the living God. Every true believer is already part of the Church of the Firstborn, and that is because of Jesus Christ who died for us. (Hallelujah!) When the followers of the Lord, realized that the demons were subject unto them, they got very excited, but Jesus told them to rejoice because their names were written in Heaven.

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)

The Lord is very concerned about people, and He is very concerned that people worship God in truth also!

The woman saith unto him, Sir, I perceive that thou art a prophet. Our fathers worshipped in this mountain; and ye say, that in Jerusalem is the place where men ought to worship. Jesus saith unto her, Woman, believe me, the hour cometh, when ye shall neither in this mountain, nor yet at JERUSALEM, worship the Father. Ye worship ye know not what: we know what we worship: for salvation is of the Jews. But the hour cometh, and now is, when the TRUE worshippers shall worship the Father in SPIRIT and in TRUTH: for the Father seeketh such to worship him. God is a Spirit: and they that worship him MUSTworship him in SPIRIT and in TRUTH. (John 4:19-24)

The Lord told that Gentile, unsaved woman that God must be worshiped in spirit and truth, and He even mentioned the city of Jerusalem. Why? Because the physical, geographical location of Jerusalem did not matter one little bit to Jesus! He was concerned about the heart of every individual, and whether or not they truly belonged to God. He also revealed Himself as the Messiah to this Samaritan (Gentile) woman.

The woman saith unto him, I know that MESSIAS (MESSIAH) cometh, which is called Christ: when he is come, he will tell us all things. Jesus saith unto her, I that speak unto thee AM HE. (John 4:25-26)

Jesus made the offer of salvation available to this Gentile woman, and He made salvation available to the Jewish people also! The Jewish people made no bones about their rejection of Jesus Christ either, and to this day they still refuse the offer of salvation (for the most part) in Jesus Christ. Here is what Jesus said to the Jewish people of His own time on Earth:

Search the scriptures; for in them ye THINK ye have eternal life: and they are they which testify of ME. And ye will NOT come to ME, that ye might have life. (John 5:39-40)

It could not be any clearer than what the Lord had spoken here. The Lord flat out told the Jewish people that they would not come to HIM, that THEY might have LIFE (eternal).  Jesus the Christ (Messiah) told them that their very own scriptures testified about HIM, and yet they still refused Him, as their Messiah! Has anything changed? I am amazed at the nonchalant attitude in the world (and the “church”) regarding the truth about Jesus Christ  as being  the only way of salvation. If a person does not believe that, then they make a mockery out of the scriptures. and they make Jesus Christ a liar. It is quite evident that they are not on their way to Heaven, according to the scriptures.

Jesus was never impressed with the Jewish religious crowd that often surrounded Him. It is most unfortunate that we are living in a day where the true Gospel of Jesus Christ is not preached to the Jewish people, even as it is to the Gentiles. Jesus Christ (Messiah) never held back in his preaching to his own Jewish people, because he knew that they were on their way to Hell as much as any other group of people! True LOVE will not hold back the warnings about the dangers ahead, especially when we are talking about an eternity in the outer darkness of Hell! Jesus got right to the heart of the matter when he spoke to a Jewish ruler named Nicodemus, who came to Jesus in search of the truth.

There was a man of the Pharisees, named Nicodemus, a ruler of the Jews: The same came to Jesus by night, and said unto him, Rabbi, we know that thou art a teacher come from God: for no man can do these miracles that thou doest, except God be with him. Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God. Nicodemus saith unto him, How can a man be born when he is old? can he enter the second time into his mother’s womb, and be born? Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God. That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit. Marvel not that I said unto thee, Ye MUST be born again. (John 3:1-7)

Every reader of this article has been born of the flesh (meaning you had a physical birth), but not every one of you has been born of the Spirit, which is an absolute necessity to inherit eternal life! Perhaps you have done many good deeds, and are hoping to get into Heaven by that way. Will that work? Nope. Jesus said that you must be born again. Perhaps you may have turned over a new leaf. Will that get you into Heaven? Nope. Jesus said that you must be born again!

But after that the kindness and love of God our Saviour toward man appeared, Not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to his mercy he SAVED us, by the washing of regeneration, and renewing of the Holy Ghost; Which he shed on us abundantly through Jesus Christ our Saviour; That being justified by his grace, we should be made heirs according to the hope of eternal life. (Titus 3:4-7)

Every living person is living in a corrupt, sin laden body which will ultimately die one day. The scriptures tell us that this physical body (flesh and blood) cannot inherit the Kingdom of God.

The first man is of the earth, earthy: the second man is the Lord from heaven. As is the earthy, such are they also that are earthy: and as is the heavenly, such are they also that are heavenly. And as we have borne the image of the earthy, we shall also bear the image of the heavenly. Now this I say, brethren, that FLESH and BLOOD cannot inherit the kingdom of God; neither doth corruption inherit incorruption. (1 Corinthians 15:47-50)

Are you still in your sins and without a Saviour? Are you absolutely sure that you have salvation in Jesus Christ? Are you a new creation in Christ or are you hoping that your ‘good life’ is going to pave your way into Heaven for you?

Therefore if any man be IN CHRIST, he is a NEW CREATURE (CREATION): old things are passed away; behold, all things are become NEW. (2 Corinthians 5:17)

There are millions, upon millions, of people who even sit inside church buildings that have never been born again of the Spirit! They have been deceived by their own Pastors and leaders who are religious but lost themselves! Get SAVED for real and come inside the REAL Kingdom of God. You need the Holy Spirit INSIDE you before YOU die! Has your name been written in Heaven yet? Is your name written in the book of Life? Do you realize, and understand that ALL mankind will be judged one day? Are you ready? Are you sure?

And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God; and the books were opened: and another book was opened, which is the BOOK OF LIFE: and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works. And the sea gave up the dead which were in it; and death and hell delivered up the dead which were in them: and they were judged every man according to their works. And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death. And WHOSOEVER was not found written in the BOOK OF LIFE was cast into the LAKE OF FIRE. (Revelation 20:12-15)

The Jewish Apostle Paul Was Set Free From The Deception of Judaism, And The Power of Satan, And He Became A True Watchman of God!

Wherefore I take you to record this day, that I am pure from the blood of all men. For I have not shunned to declare unto you all the counsel of God. (Acts 20:26-27)

The Jewish apostle Paul spoke those words to his fellow believers nearly two thousand years ago. What a statement Paul makes here in saying that his hands were clean, and pure from the blood of all men. How could Paul could speak with such confidence, and with a clear conscience? He gives us the answer, when he says that he has not shunned to declare all the counsel of God to all the people that the Lord allowed him to preach to.

The apostle Paul was converted on the road to Damascus by the Lord Jesus Christ straight out of Heaven, and that man never looked back. [Acts 9] He did not care who confronted him, whether Jewish or Gentile, because he knew that the Lord Jesus was most definitely the Christ [Messiah]. Paul remembered his past, and the fact that he formerly persecuted Christians even unto death many times, but the Lord Jesus Christ still showed him mercy.

Whereupon as I went to Damascus with authority and commission from the chief priests, At midday, O king, I saw in the way a light from heaven, above the brightness of the sun, shining round about me and them which journeyed with me. And when we were all fallen to the earth, I heard a voice speaking unto me, and saying in the Hebrew tongue, Saul, Saul, why persecutest thou me? it is hard for thee to kick against the pricks. And I said, Who art thou, Lord? And he said, I am Jesus whom thou persecutest. (Acts 26:12-15)

This is one of the most awesome passages in the whole Bible. This passage is filled with such hope. Here you have this murderer of Christians being confonted by the LIVING Christ, after Jesus had been murdered himself, and had already ascended into Heaven. If you or I, were God we would have probably NAILED this man Saul [Paul] right then and there for all of the trouble that he brought to the Christians along the way, but that is not what happened at all.

But rise, and stand upon thy feet: for I have appeared unto thee for this purpose, to make thee a minister and a witness both of these things which thou hast seen, and of those things in the which I will appear unto thee; Delivering thee from the people, and from the Gentiles, unto whom now I send thee, To open their eyes, and to turn them from darkness to light, and from the power of Satan unto God, that they may receive forgiveness of sins, and inheritance among them which are sanctified by faith that is in me. (Acts 26:16-18)

The Lord told this man Saul [Paul] that he was going to preach his gospel. Paul would be giving his testimony to many people, especially the Gentiles, but also to the Jews. Please do not miss the truth here that God is able to SAVE even murderers and use them for his own glory. That should put a HOPE in the heart of any person, who is wondering if they too might be SAVED!

Whereupon, O king Agrippa, I was not disobedient unto the heavenly vision: But shewed first unto them of Damascus, and at Jerusalem, and throughout all the coasts of Judaea, and then to the Gentiles, that they should repent and turn to God, and do works meet for repentance. For these causes the Jews caught me in the temple, and went about to kill me. (Acts 26:19-21)

Listen to what Paul said here. Paul was giving his testimony to King Agrippa, and he told him that he did not disobey this vision that he had of Jesus Christ. Then Paul told him that he testified first to those in Damascus, and then to those in Jerusalem, and then Judaea, that people needed to repent and turn to God. The message that Paul was preaching has never changed either. It is the same message for all the people in the world! But what happened next? Paul declared that the Jews went about to kill him. Why? Simply because they did not believe the message that Paul was preaching.

Having therefore obtained help of God, I continue unto this day, witnessing both to small and great, saying none other things than those which the prophets and Moses did say should come: That Christ should suffer, and that he should be the first that should rise from the dead, and should shew light unto the people, and to the Gentiles. (Acts 26:22-23)

Here Paul told this same King Agrippa, that he was still preaching the very same message to small and great, and this message was no different then what the PROPHETS and MOSES said should come! Folks, I must say to you that you RARELY hear that being spoken today! Paul suffered much for his preaching simply because he preached the TRUE GOSPEL to ALL and he did not hold back the truth to pacify anybody. Paul knew that any person without Jesus Christ was hellbound, because that is exactly what Jesus himself taught!

Take heed therefore unto yourselves, and to all the flock, over the which the Holy Ghost hath made you overseers, to feed the church of God, which he hath purchased with his own blood. For I know this, that after my departing shall grievous wolves enter in among you, not sparing the flock. Also of your own selves shall men arise, speaking perverse things, to draw away disciples after them. Therefore watch, and remember, that by the space of three years I ceased not to warn every one night and day with tears. (Acts 20:28-31)

Paul warned his fellow believers about the wolves that were coming, meaning the false teachers that would try to capture the minds and souls of those who followed Christ. Paul told them that he warned them night and day for three years about such things. Folks, that is a TRUE WATCHMAN and we all need to take heed to these words which still LIVE today.
