Lie of Religion


Lie Of Religion

The biggest religion in all the world is Roman Catholicism. In fact, more than half of people that claim to be Christian say that they are Catholic. This is a big problem, guys, because the Roman Catholic church is not in the truth. There may be some Catholics there that hear the voice of the Holy Spirit and who are coming out of dead religion. But at large, the Roman Catholic church itself is not true Christianity. We know that they have many problems, how they have deviated away from the truth. They worship idols. For example. They deify Saints, they pray to Saints, they pray to Mary. It's huge idolatry. But on top of that, the very essence of their prayer life is a fraud. I want to read to you what Jesus said in Matthew chapter six in regards to this: “when you pray, go into your room, and when you have shut your door, pray to your Father who is in the secret place; and your Father who sees in secret will reward you openly. And when you pray, do not use vain repetitions as the heathen do. For they think that they will be heard for their many words.

Therefore do not be like them. For your Father knows the things you have need of before you ask Him.”

False religion says that if you repeat a prayer enough, it will be answered; if you confess to a priest, you will be forgiven; that if you pay a certain amount of money, you can escape hell; that if you pay your tithes, you'll be right with God and with the community. This sort of religion offers a lie to those who are already deceived. And it's sad that more than half of Christians are deceived. Don't be deceived like the Catholics who put their faith in a huge lie, who don't have a genuine prayer life and who worship idols. Come out and be separate, don't touch anything that is unclean, and start a genuine relationship with your Father in heaven. He cares for your soul. He doesn't want you to enter into a religious act, just of traditions that the Catholic church has done for a long time. He wants you to enter into a genuine relationship with Him. So pray to Jesus Christ. Get to know Him for real. And let Him lead you out of dead religion. May the grace of Jesus be with you.

Why I Left Church Never To Return


Why I Left Church Never To Return

Well Praise Jesus, everyone. I want to just speak quickly here about my testimony of why I chose to leave church never to return. The reason why I left church is because Jesus Christ Himself called me out of church. He gave me visions that lasted for weeks where He told me that the church was like a whorehouse and that I needed to leave there if I wanted to follow Him. He told me to touch nothing unclean, showing me the scripture that we are to touch nothing unclean and not to have false fellowship with unbelievers. When I chose to come out of church, a lot of people said, “Well, Andy has just been hurt by people in the church. He's just been confused and if we show him the right kind of love he will come back to church.” And people had this idea that I left church because I was hurt in church. This is ridiculous, guys. The churches that I attended from when I was young, all the way up until the point that I left treated me very well, very respectfully. They paid me well. They would do anything for me. These people were very loving in the world. I was not hurt by church as to the reason why I left. Now a lot of people leave church because they were hurt; they were annoyed at church; they were kind of taxed by church by tithe, and they left for those reasons. But I didn't leave church for any of these reasons. I had plenty of friends there, plenty of money there, plenty of fun things that we were doing together as a family there.

So, besides the fact that Jesus was calling me away from this wicked organization called church, I would not have left. I was not spiritually wounded there. I wasn’t, you know, it wasn't like I was hurt there and then I tried to leave because I was wounded. That's just such a lie. And so many people leave church for the wrong reasons and then they try to start another church that they perceive will be better than the church that hurt them or their family. And they end up just still being in this delusion, in this deception and in this sin called church.

The big problem with church today and the reason why Jesus called me and my family out of church is because the church is stuck in sin. She doesn't want to repent. She says that she will never see sorrow. She says that she sits as queen. She believes that she can do no wrong. And because of this, plagues and all the things mentioned in Revelation about Babylon the Great, the great whore, are going to come upon the false church. The Christians who are in church openly confess that they are sinners. They believe that they are saved by grace, but they don't want to lift a finger to repent themselves or to help others repent. It is sad that the Christian church has deviated so far away from the truth. They're 100% apostate. Apostate means that they are more than backslidden. They're 100% in sin and they have no intention to come back to God.

So, anyone who is listening to this message, if you're wanting to know the truth, the truth is the true body of Christ is made up of believers that have the love of Jesus Christ in their hearts. The true church is not a gathering of people that pay tithe. It's not a social club. It's not just a group of people that like to read the Bible together, but the true body of Christ are those that make up Jesus His body, because they have His Holy Spirit in them. They are made pure, they are purged of sin, they really repent of their sins, they put on righteousness. We read about this through the Gospels and in Revelation that the true church puts on her white garments, she has made pure. She is purged of sin and unrighteousness in leaven.

The American church that is the 501 (c )3, all these organized churches that we see throughout our cities and towns, they have no intention to be holy and pure and without sin. They touch everything that is unclean. They allow sin into their church because they want people's money, and they act like a business so they can get more and more people in there. And it's very fun, as a kid, I loved church, not because I liked listening to sermons, but I liked being around other kids who wanted to have fun and who could enjoy the so-called ministries that the church had to offer. They would take you up skiing or snowboarding. They would take you to camp where you could meet a lot of other fun people to hang out with. They would take you all different places to do all sorts of different fun activities. And you end up getting a lot of people in your church, a lot of youth, but none of them are interested in the Kingdom of God. They're interested in having fun. That was me as a junior high and high school student. And a lot of churches are like this. They're attracting people to themselves by all their gimmicks. And of course, people are going to like you. Of course they're going to like your church. But that doesn't mean that you're making disciples of Jesus Christ who love and obey Jesus and who will live and die for Him.

True discipleship is not attractive to the world because it means you have to die. Jesus said, “Whoever of you does not daily deny himself, take up his cross and follow Me is not worthy of Me.” He called us to count the cost, and no one wants to count the cost. No one wants to die. But if we really are following Jesus, we are already dead. We have died to our sins, we have died to the old nature of our flesh and we have chosen to leave this old life of the world, worldly friends, worldly habits, worldly desires behind. We turn our backs on the world. We turn to 180 and we start walking the way of the cross with Jesus.

 If that is what you want to do today, I encourage you to pick up your cross and walk with the Lord. If you do this, you will leave the apostate churches, not because they hurt you, not because they weren’t fun enough, not because they were teaching something you disagreed with, but because the way of Jesus Christ is not the way of man's religion and dead church religion.

So I hope this addresses any confusion and clarifies as to the reason why you should leave the false church. You shouldn't leave it for any other reason than Jesus calls His true church to be separate, to touch nothing that is unclean, and to be holy and pure for Him without sin and without hypocrisy. Do you want to follow Jesus Christ? Do you want salvation to everlasting life? Or do you want a little bit of religion, fun, so-called worship music, a so-called pastor? Do you want elders and deacons and that sort of thing in your life to control and manipulate you? Or would you rather follow the good shepherd who loves you and who can lead you into everlasting life? The choice and the decision is yours who you will follow, man, or God. May the grace of Jesus be with you.

Temptation Comes Whether or Not You Pray BUT...

 Temptation Comes Whether or Not You Pray BUT...

Temptation is going to come to you whether you pray or whether you don't pray. In fact, temptation may come to you even stronger if you do pray because Satan wants to tear your prayers down. It's not that Jesus is sending you a scorpion or a snake or a demon, but Satan wants to rip you to pieces. He wants to rip and tear down your prayer life. He wants to weaken you so that he can win. If you realize that you have a spiritual enemy, then you can push through and fight against the devil, have on the full armor of God and continue to push through to Jesus Christ in prayer. The way is through prayer with Jesus Christ, and you will overcome if you continue to hold fast to your faith in Jesus. So don't give up when you pray. Continue to pray for your own spiritual wellbeing. Pray for your family, your friends. Pray for true repentance of all people. But make sure that you continue to push through to Jesus Christ in prayer. Remember that our Lord said the Kingdom of heaven suffers violence and the violent take it by force. Satan wants to violently strip away from you your faith and everything that you have that is true in the Lord, everything that the holy spirit gave to you. He will even come against you harder when you pray. But if you do continue to pray, you will get a whole lot better at resisting sin. If you don't pray, not only will temptation come to you, but you will fall into that temptation, you will fall into sin. That is what Satan wants. He wants to destroy your prayer life and then destroy your soul and take you to hell. But we as soldiers go into battle and if we are well protected with the sword of the Spirit, helmet of salvation, shield of faith, belt of truth, with those boots ready to bring the gospel of peace, then we will overcome in the name of Jesus because He is with us and He is in us. But if you are not praying, you're going to lose the battle and you're going to lose the war. So don't think that just because you pray, temptation will not come your way. Temptation will come to you, trials and tribulations will still come to you if you pray. But if you do pray and you don't give up, you will be able to overcome. And Jesus promises to be with us. And when we overcome and endure to the very end, then we will be saved. Only those who overcome and endure to the end will be saved.

May the grace of Jesus be with you.

The prayer of Jesus for You



The Prayer of Jesus for You

 What we can be comforted in brothers and sisters is the fact that Jesus will always be with us through trials and tribulations, through persecutions, through sickness, whatever our walk of life, Jesus will be with us, We just have to keep our ears and our eyes fixed upon Him. I think a lot of us think that God just gave His Son to us to get us out of our problems, and sometimes Jesus does heal us when we are sick and get us out of certain problems, but a lot of times He allows us to go through these trials and tribulations to refine us. And He doesn’t let us get away easy. Remember that Jesus prayed to His Father wanting to NOT go to the cross, He was pleading if there was ANY other way, please let there be another way (Yet God didn’t even grant escape from pain even to His only Son) Jesus was a man (who felt pain and suffering) of course He didn’t want to die and take that suffering and rejection from His Father, but He did it out of complete obedience to His Father and out of love for us. I want us to read the prayer of Jesus today when He prays for Himself, His disciples and for you and me, because it really shows Jesus’s heart, how He wants to obey His Father, How His Father and Him are one and How He wants us to be also one with Him. So I’m going to read from John chapter 17:

 Jesus Prays for Himself 17 Jesus spoke these words, lifted up His eyes to heaven, and said: “Father, the hour has come. Glorify Your Son, that Your Son also may glorify You, 2 as You have given Him authority over all flesh, that He should give eternal life to as many as You have given Him. 3 And this is eternal life, that they may know You, the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom You have sent. 4 I have glorified You on the earth. I have finished the work which You have given Me to do. 5 And now, O Father, glorify Me together with Yourself, with the glory which I had with You before the world was.”

This is just more proof that IS GOD, He was in existence with His Father BEFORE the entire world was created… so anyone who is saying that Jesus isn’t worthy to be worshiped or that He was just born of Mary and didn’t exist BEFORE that, would be lying to us… SO Jesus goes on to say;

Jesus Prays for His Disciples 6 “I have manifested Your name to the men whom You have given Me out of the world. They were Yours, You gave them to Me, and they have kept Your word. 7 Now they have known that all things which You have given Me are from You. 8 For I have given to them the words which You have given Me; and they have received them, and have known surely that I came forth from You; and they have believed that You sent Me. 9 “I pray for them. I do not pray for the world but for those whom You have given Me, for they are Yours.”

Jesus has a very specific goal, and His goal is not to save the world meaning worldly people, (Jesus did not come to preserve the worldly way, governments etc…) people that don’t care about His Kingdom, but He is coming to save those what know they are sick and know they are in need of a Savior, those who will put their faith in Hi that will repent and be part of HIS Kingdom, not the kingdom of the world… and that’s why we see Jesus here saying He doesn’t pray for the world, but for those whom His Father have given Him..

10 “And all Mine are Yours, and Yours are Mine, and I am glorified in them. 11 Now I am no longer in the world, but these are in the world, and I come to You. Holy Father, keep through Your name those whom You have given Me, that they may be one as We are. 12 While I was with them in the world, I kept them in Your name. Those whom You gave Me I have kept; and none of them is lost except the son of perdition,(that is Judas) that the Scripture might be fulfilled. 13 But now I come to You, and these things I speak in the world, that they may have My joy fulfilled in themselves. 14 I have given them Your word; and the world has hated them because they are not of the world, just as I am not of the world. 15 I do not pray that You should take them out of the world, but that You should keep them from the evil one.

See, Jesus isn’t praying that we can just escape the persecution and the problems of the world but that we could escape the snares of Satan that leads to death, that we would be a light to people in this world, to all humanity, to all people.  Jesus is the one true Light, but He also makes us lights that’s why Jesus said; “You are the Light of the world, let your light so shine… So that’s what we want to do here in this world…

 16 They are not of the world, just as I am not of the world. 17 Sanctify them by Your truth. Your word is truth. 18 As You sent Me into the world, I also have sent them into the world. 19 And for their sakes I sanctify Myself, that they also may be sanctified by the truth. Jesus Prays for All Believers 20 “I do not pray for these alone, (meaning the 12 disciples) but also for those who will believe in Me through their word;”

 In other words He’s praying for YOU, He’s praying for me, He’ praying for all of those gentiles who are not Jews who will come into the faith and believe that Jesus is GOD that He is LORD and that He will wash us clean of our sins.

21 “…that they all may be one, as You, Father, are in Me, and I in You; that they also may be one in Us, that the world may believe that You sent Me. 22 And the glory which You gave Me I have given them, that they may be one just as We are one: 23 I in them, and You in Me; that they may be made perfect in one, and that the world may know that You have sent Me, and have loved them as You have loved Me. 24 “Father, I desire that they also whom You gave Me may be with Me where I am, that they may behold My glory which You have given Me; for You loved Me before the foundation of the world. 25 O righteous Father! The world has not known You, but I have known You; and these have known that You sent Me. 26 And I have declared to them Your name, and will declare it, that the love with which You loved Me may be in them, and I in them.”

So these are the words of Jesus, His prayer to His Father and this prayer is for you that you may accept Jesus Christ as your personal savior that you may come into the truth and love Him, love JESUS with all your heart, soul, mind and strength, that you may be one also with His Father.  Do you have the love of Jesus in your heart?  If you do, you have to come out of sin, come out of worldliness, come out of the temptations of this world and forsake all.  Count the cost to following Jesus, don’t be ashamed of Him and His words and His gospel.  Turn your back on evil, turn your back on this world and by doing so you will become one with your Father in heaven, just as Jesus is one with His Father.  May the grace of Jesus be with you.

Drawn by the FATHER

 Drawn By The FATHER (part 1 of 2)

Well, praise Jesus today, everyone. It's a blessing to know our Father in heaven. It is written about Jesus, “His name shall be called wonderful Counsellor, mighty God, everlasting Father, Prince of peace, and the government will be upon His shoulders”. That is the God we Father. I mean, that is the God that we follow, the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. And when we put our faith in Him, He leads us, and He develops our faith and He helps us grow. But when we choose to live for ourselves and put our trust in the arm of the flesh, then we don't grow. And there are many Christians who the Father has not drawn. Many are called, but few are chosen. And because a lot of Christians don't choose to go with Jesus. They abandon their faith and they abandon that calling. And because of this, they end up going their own way and falling away from the faith. And Jesus will never force them to follow His calling to go with Him. They eventually go off on their own and they perish. Remember that Jesus said, “Unless you also likewise repent, you will perish”. Well, many people, they just end up perishing because spiritually they die.

I want to read to you a bit from John chapter six, and then I want to share with you a bit of my personal testimony about this. So this is John chapter six, I’m starting in verse 41. 41The Jews then complained about Him, because He said, “I am the bread which came down from heaven.” 42And they said, “Is not this Jesus, the son of Joseph, whose father and mother we know? How is it then that He says, ‘I have come down from heaven’?” 43Jesus therefore answered and said to them, “Do not murmur among yourselves. 44No one can come to Me unless the Father who sent Me draws him; and I will raise him up at the last day. 45It is written in the prophets, ‘And they shall all be taught by God.’ Therefore everyone who has heard and learned from the Father comes to Me. 46Not that anyone has seen the Father, except He who is from God; He has seen the Father. 47Most assuredly, I say to you, he who believes in Me has everlasting life. 48I am the bread of life. 49Your fathers ate the manna in the wilderness, and are dead. 50 This is the bread which comes down from heaven, that one may eat of it and not die. 51I am the living bread which came down from heaven. If anyone eats of this bread, he will live forever; and the bread that I shall give is My flesh, which I shall give for the life of the world.”

What I want to point out here is what Jesus says, “No one can come to Me unless the Father who sent Me draws him”. I know that some churches have made complete false doctrines off of this one verse. And they talk about predestination and all of that stuff. But the truth is unless you hear the Lord's calling and choose to go with Him, you're not going to grow in your faith. It doesn't matter if you were born in a Christian home; it doesn't matter if you read the bible a lot or if at one point you had faith, if the Lord isn't calling you, and if you're not hearing His calling and going with Him, then instead of growing in your faith, you're going to be dwindling. And a lot of Christians, they haven't grown in their faith in years, maybe ten, twenty, thirty decades.

I want to share with you a bit of my testimony about this. and I apologize for my allergies. There's pollen and it makes my eyes itchy and my nose run. But praise the Lord anyway that He has given us water this year. So when I was younger and first coming out of dead religion, coming out of church, I was convinced that because I was starting to have visions from Jesus, having dreams about Him. I was hearing the Holy Spirit. I was convinced that people would want to hear this and that it would be convincing, especially to the people that were closest to me that trusted me as a friend. And fifteen years ago, when the Lord was first starting to stir in me and the Lord was calling me out of church, I was convinced that when I left dead religion, when I came out of church, that at the very least, my best friend, maybe my roommate, my best man in my wedding or my own brother, these people who trusted me and have known me all my life, that they would at very least consider my testimony and to be convicting enough for them to repent.

And of course, we've all watched testimonies where a tribe leader or whoever it may be comes to Jesus has a vision of the Lord, and then he testifies about how the living God has changed Him, and then all of His friends or all of His tribe members all come to the Lord. So that was always in the back of my head. And I truly believed that at least those closest to me would also repent and come to the Lord. But what ended up happening when Jesus started giving me dreams and visions and I started telling others about this, they all turned on me. My grandfather, just in His words, He said, “you're caustic.” He didn't believe the Gospel. People that were my close friends in the church, they would not stand with me, with Jesus. They were ashamed of the gospel. They didn't want to go through the fire that I was going through, so they backed away from me as a friend. My grandma said about me, “You basically think that you're in Bible times that God still speaks to you like how He spoke to Abraham and the people in the bible, but we’re not in bible times.” That was her message to me. Other people in my family basically just thought that I was angry and that's why I was leaving the church, saying “he seems like a very angry young man”. So I had all of these judgment calls from my friends. But long story short, none of them were changed because of my testimony. None of them were drawn to God.

And, guys, at this point in my life, I’ve lost my pride of thinking that because of my wonderful testimony, anyone will repent. If the Lord is drawing you, you will repent and follow Him because you hear His calling and you're hearkening to it. But if the Lord is not drawing you, no amount of men's persuasive words, or their wonderful testimonies, or their prophecies or their visions of the Lord are going to compel you to repent. It just will never happen. To put it in perspective, as far as I know, the thousand people that I knew from my former life when I was in dead religion in church, none of them that I know of have repented because of my testimony. That is very sad. None of them were drawn by God. All of them backed away. And it became something that no one wanted to talk about because I was a sore subject in the church. Unless you are drawn by God, you will not repent, you will not change, you will not become born again and a new man or a new woman. And so, knowing this, we can pray for our lost family members, but we shouldn't have the pride in our heart thinking because I’ve had these wonderful experiences, because I’m such a strong Christian, I can twist their arm into the faith. No amount of effort on our parts is going to draw someone to the Lord. It has to be done by Jesus Christ Himself. 

Drawn By The FATHER (part 2 of 2)

So why am I saying this? Am I saying this to discourage you? Of course not. But to put the emphasis on prayer, not in the arm of the flesh, not how we can by our personalities or by a wonderful testimony or by our intellect cause a family member or make a family member change or repent. We just cannot do that, guys. But we can pray for those if the Holy Spirit leads us to pray for. And then we can follow the direction of the Holy Spirit. And when He calls us to pray for a certain person and talk to a certain person that He is drawing. Then we put our focus there on encouraging that family member of the family of God to repent. But I think a lot of Christians, baby Christians are convinced that because they heard God's voice, they're going to go out and they're going to make all their family members repent. And it's just not going to happen, because unless the Father is drawing you, you're not going to change. It doesn't matter how many men are. Now the Father uses people to draw us. He works through people. So pray for your family, speak the truth to them as the Holy Spirit leads you. But don't think that by the arm of the flesh you're going to cause anybody to change. It's amazing how we can have such an epic and wonderful and awesome testimony of Jesus. But that testimony is for our eyes to see, for our eyes to hear, and it's for us to be changed. And just because we’re changed doesn't mean that it is real to anyone else.

In fact, I think to most people, we as Christians just seen as lunatics. It's all in our mind. I was told when I was coming out of church and coming to Jesus that I should probably go see a doctor, I should go see someone that casts out a demon, because people thought that I was demon-possessed because my life changed so much for Jesus. So they thought they were going to cast a demon out of me. Or possibly, maybe I got sick or hit my head and now I’m out of my mind and I should go see a doctor to make sure I’m right in my mental health. This is not uncommon for any brother or sister in the Lord who really comes to Jesus. They change dramatically. But the world's interpretation of it, even the Christian church's interpretation of it, is “We need to fix them with a doctor. They shouldn't be talking about Jesus so much. We should cast a demon out of them.” And remember that they said the same thing about Jesus. They wanted to fix Jesus up the right way, because He was casting out demons by the prince of demons Beelzebub, He was demon-possessed, He was out of His mind, He was a sinner. If they said that about Jesus, and if we are following in the footsteps of Jesus, they will also say that about us, because a servant is not greater than His master.

 It is a blessing, guys, to feel the resistance of Satan. Because Jesus is resisting Satan. The false churches don't feel that resistance, and the false Christians don't feel the resistance from Satan because they are right where Satan wants them. They are lukewarm. And they are loving their lukewarm lifestyle. They enjoy dead religion. They enjoy listening to their preachers because they have itching ears. They love going to bible studies and studying the scripture because they can manipulate and control the scriptures. They love just the whole entire church culture because they feel it is safe and comfortable. But they are not following the drawing of God. If you feel the drawing of God today, if you're being drawn to repent to holiness, to be separate from dead religion, then I encourage you to pray and seek the Lord with all your heart. Do be a light to the world. Jesus says “You are the light of the world. Let your light so shine before men that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in heaven.” So be a light to your family, be a light to your friends. We shouldn't just shut up and be quiet and not talk to people. But we should understand that it's not by our own efforts or by our own flesh that people repent and come into the truth.

Christian churches for years have had debates, they have tried to speak persuasively and had all of these events in their church to try to make people Christians, but they don't understand that unless God is calling someone, they are not going to repent. And most people that are not repenting are the ones in the church. They are Christians. They are people that believe in the bible, and they're the ones that haven't hearkened to the calling of the Lord Jesus Christ. And it's very ironic because they're the ones saying, “Oh, we believe in predestination and we're Calvinists.” The ironic thing is they're the ones that haven't heard the calling. They go around saying “you're either chosen, or you're not chosen”. And of course, they believe that they are the ones that have heard the calling, and they are the ones that are predestined for heaven, where everyone else is predestined for hell. But the irony here is they are the ones that haven't heard the calling. They haven't been drawn by God. It is a mystery who God is choosing and who God is allowing to have ears to hear and eyes to see. Most of the time, it's someone that is very unexpected. He is calling people of every walk of life to repent and to follow Him. But often it is not who you think. It is not the good Christians who seem like they have good morals. He calls people of every different walk of life and people are repenting. And it is a blessing to see people added to the number of the body of Christ.

So I want to pray right now for those who do feel the drawing of the Holy Spirit, and who do want to come out of the world, who want to come out of addiction and sin, all the temptations of the world, and of course, also out of dead religion. “Lord Jesus, I pray for those who have an ear to hear who you are calling. I pray that they will put their faith in you and that nothing will stop them, that family members will not stop them from coming out and being separate, that other Christians will not persuade them to go the wrong way, that no family member, no mom or dad or brother or sister or grandpa or grandma will convince them to go the wrong way, but that they may put their faith in you, Lord Jesus, that you would be their one and only teacher, and that they would develop in their faith with you because your Holy Spirit is in them. I pray for your true church to be born again, that they would be born again and truly come into the newness of life, and partake in communion with you, where they eat your flesh and drink your blood and have the words of life in their heart forever. So, I pray this, Lord Jesus, for the true body of Christ and those who you are drawing. In Your name I pray, Lord Jesus. Amen.”

As unto the Lord


As Unto The Lord

Well, praise Jesus today, everyone. I wanted to just make a quick video about working as unto the Lord. As Christians and as disciples of Jesus, we don't just do a good job when people are watching and always trying to get away with something. In fact, the best craftsmen and the best people are ones that are working, not because someone else is watching them, but they're doing it as unto the Lord. A lot of Amish do a really good job. They have really quality work because they're not working for other people, but they're doing everything as unto the Lord. Now there's the mentality that some people have, that's the employee mentality. And with the employee mentality, you're only doing a good job when your boss is watching. And those kinds of employees are just paid by hour and they look for ways to stretch out their work and basically do the worst work possible. They just get lazier and lazier, and they only are trying to appear to be hard workers when their manager is overseeing them. And you see these kinds of workers all across America. They're younger people that are working fast food, mcdonald’s, Burger King, Denny's and these big corporations. They just throw in a manager there and they put some young waiters to work, and basically, they're just very lazy. But for us, we know Jesus Christ, whether our manager is watching or not, whether we have a boss or not that's watching, we're always trying to do quality work, not to please other people, but to do all of our work as unto the Lord. And if we start working unto the Lord, we ourselves will be more appreciative. (have better attitudes) I remember many year ago my family wanted to get my grandmother a gift, so we bought her some flowers. My grandma received this bouquet of flowers and it didn't seem like she appreciated it. And I don't remember her thanking us for it. And my family, my mom and us, all of us felt like, "why did we even get my grandma a birthday gift?"  "Why did we even get her this bouquet of flowers if she doesn't appreciate it?" And then we just realized the reason why we do things for others is out of the love of Jesus Christ. The reason why we love the church, the reason why we love our family and love others as ourself, our neighbours as ourself, is ultimately because we love Jesus. And we shouldn't be doing things just because people are watching or because grandma is going to give us good feedback and say, “thank you so much for what you did”. We should be doing good for others, doing good work and loving others because Jesus Christ loved us first. And that has to be our attitude. And as soon as we realized that, and my mom actually realized that, then it changed our whole perspective. We wanted to do good things. And we were thankful that we were able to give a gift to my grandma even if she wasn't appreciative, because we know that our Father in heaven is always watching. And He doesn't overlook anything that we do, whether it's good or evil. If we do evil, we will be punished. But if we do good, we will be rewarded according to our good works. So I hope this encourages someone to work as unto the Lord. Make sure that whether you're in the public's eye or behind closed doors, you're always upright, and doing a good job at whatever you're doing in life, whether that's at home, in the workplace, out in public, wherever you are, live as unto Jesus Christ, not to be pleasing men or for men's approval, or for their attention. But for the Lord Jesus Christ. All right, well, “thank you, Lord Jesus for giving us the opportunity to walk with you, to be your true church, to be your children. I pray for those that are part of your true church, that they would work as unto the Lord, that they would love you with all their heart and that they wouldn't compromise with the world or be like those who want to win one over on people when they're not watching. We pray that we can be humble and honest, slow to anger, quick to forgive, efficient for the Kingdom of God, but never in a rush, Lord. We thank you for your blessing. We thank you for cursing what is evil and blessing what is good. And we want to just be your children and serve you, Lord, with all our heart. And in your name I pray, Lord Jesus. Amen.”

Your Focus as a Christian



Well, praise Jesus today, everyone. Our main focus as Christians and as disciples of Jesus should be pleasing the Lord Jesus with all of our heart, soul, mind and strength. It's easier to say though than to do. It's very easy to get distracted by politics, by church events, by making money, our business, our family life. And it's easy to compartmentalize our life to where God is no longer part of our business, and we segment it into our business and God's business. And that is what has happened in the Christian culture today. They have their church business that's all about going to church on Sunday, bible study, their Christian gatherings. And then they have their political business that's all about getting the people politically elected that they want. And then they have their personal business, their shop or their merchandise that they're selling, or whatever it is that people do. And people compartmentalize their heart instead of being fully dedicated to Jesus Christ. Now, obviously, depending on where we are, we have to take into consideration how we share Jesus.

When I was teaching in the school district, I couldn't just speak Jesus openly without an invitation, because as a schoolteacher you can get yourself fired. And I actually really didn't like that element of teaching, because as soon as you walk onto the campus, you give up some of your amendment rights as a civilian and as a citizen of the United States, no longer can you speak freely about your faith. And our first focus in life should not be teaching eighth graders or high schoolers Math; our first focus in life shouldn't be making money; our first focus in life shouldn't be getting some political guy in office or any other worldly pursuit.

Our focus in life should be on hearing Jesus Christ, having ears that hear and eyes that see. Most people are chasing after religion. That is why they spend so much time looking for a church. They call it fellowship, they call it bible study, whatever they call it, they're chasing after religion, guys. But it's a very different thing to chase after Jesus Christ, after pleasing Him, after hearing His voice. In fact, most people just give up on it because they say “God must have stopped talking during the bible, and it's much easier just to follow a set of principles from the bible. So, I’m going to look over the ten commandments. I’m going to look over the Gospels. And I’ll pick the ones that seem easy for me to keep and that will be my focus.” So you have all these different denominations of churches and they all have their set structure of what the most important doctrines are to keep in order to get to heaven. It becomes legalism. So for the Baptist, they think you have to be reading your bible every day because we're more like the Bereans. We're more noble than others who are lazy, they don't read their bible. We go to church on Sundays. And they make a big deal about being in big church and reading their bible as if that will save them. For different denominations is different things. For the Pentecostal group, their focus is on speaking in tongues. So they make the entire faith experience about this feeling that you've received the Holy Spirit from your feet up and that you speak in a tongue that their church imitates.

So you have all these different focuses. But people get their focus off of what really matters, which is the love of Jesus Christ. The greatest commandment, guys, is to love the Lord or God that is Jesus Christ with all our heart, soul, mind and strength. And the next commandment is like it, which is to love your neighbor as yourself. The focus isn't on just looking like a good person on the outside, having a big church or being a big pastor. It's not about that. It's not about memorizing all these scripture verses to look good as your some kind of a preacher.

Knowing Jesus is about being genuine before God and then genuinely living your faith for Him in complete holiness. If we are holy, it's because the Holy Spirit is working in us, not the spirit of the world or selfishness or greed or pride. But if the Holy Spirit is in us, we will be holy because we are His body, we are the indwelling of the Holy Spirit. He is living in us and we are the true church, so that needs to be our focus. Most Christians don't even hear from God, so they're not the true church. They're false believers. They're false jews as they're called in scripture. They have false churches, false synagogues. They are the synagogue of Satan. And their focus is on 1 million different things other than hearing Jesus.

But what it all comes down to is, do you hear Jesus Christ? Is that your main focus being led by the Spirit of God, receiving the Holy Spirit and making Him your One and Only teacher? Not 1000 other people or ten other people or whatever number of mentors and brothers and sisters you have. But who are you hearing and listening to and obeying? Is it the pastor in your church who creates whatever focus he wants for you? Or is it the Spirit of God who is the only one qualified to lead you and guide you?

So I want to pray for those who do want to be led by the Holy Spirit, not by a pastor of a church, not by a bible study, not by a set of mentors that think they know best. But I want to pray for those of you who do want to hear the Holy Spirit and have His love in your heart always. So “Lord Jesus, I do pray for the body of Christ. I pray for those who want to get their focus on you and who want to be led by your Holy Spirit. I pray for your body of Christ, the true church that they would have ears to hear and eyes to see and their hearts and minds would be open to your truth and shut off to everything else in the world. We want to make ourselves the people who only take direction from you and never take direction from others, because you tell us to make you are Christ and our one and only teacher. So that's what we want to do today and forever. In your name we pray, Lord Jesus, amen.”

Get your focus on Jesus. Don't be distracted by politics or who the next president is going to be or how the end of the world will happen or end day prophecies, apocalyptic speeches. Don't get your eyes on the things of this world that so easily menace with your spiritual walk. Keep your eyes on Jesus Christ, focus on him, not on the world, and you'll be walking the straight and narrow path. But as soon as you start listening to so-called prophets, brothers and sisters, even if they say they are the children of God, you will be listening to people. Who are we listening to? And who are we obeying? May the grace of Jesus be with you.

Anti-venom for true Christianity

 Anti-venom For True Christianity

Well, praise Jesus today everyone. It is a blessing to have revelation from the Lord, to hear His voice and to walk with Him, and not to be guided by false religion and by people who are misled themselves and misleading others. If you want to know the truth, it's all about hearing Jesus' voice, receiving the Spirit of the Most High Living God, and making Him your one and only teacher. You know where I live here in California is rattlesnake country. And the rattlesnakes have just started coming out, being that it's getting later in spring. And for years, ever since I was a little boy, we killed rattlesnakes that came around our house. We’ve had rattlesnakes come all the way up onto our porch. We’ve had multiple dogs bitten multiple times by rattlesnakes. In fact, one of our dogs was probably bitten five times by rattlesnakes. One of our dogs died from being bit several times by rattlesnakes. You know, they swell up, and if you can't get them to the vet for anti-venom, they can die. From what I've seen from rattlesnake bites, dogs often don't die. However, a lot of times they do. But one of our dogs was probably bit five times and do not die from a rattlesnake bite. So, it probably depends on how big they are.

But what I want to speak about is how anti-venom relates to false Christianity. Now, I don't know too much about anti-venom. I do know it's very expensive. If you get bit by a rattlesnake and have to pay out a pocket, it may be something like $30000 or $50000, some ridiculous amount of money, guys, to have to pay for anti-venom. And of course, that's why a lot of people have insurance and stuff like that. But it's quite a difficult process to get anti-venom, because you have to find a rattlesnake, and you have to basically milk its venom out of its fangs. And then you take that venom and you insert some of it into an animal, like, e.g. a dog. And you don't give that dog all the venom, but you give it a portion of the venom, so then its body can build up antibodies towards the venom. And then, after the animal has built up a bit of immunity against the anti-venom, you extract those antibodies. Now, you extract those antibodies, and you turn that into the anti-venom, which then you can give a dog that has a full dose of venom in Him. So the issue is, it can't only be stored so long in the freezer, and they have to constantly do this. They constantly have to be, each year milking rattlesnakes. They have to be putting a little bit of it into animals. And guys, I'm not a doctor or a physician, so I don't know that much about this. It’s just what I've researched and looked up on my own about this. But it's interesting to me, because this is very similar to what has happened in dead religion.

In dead religion, that is, churches all across California, all across the United States and pretty much all across the world, they have basically an anti-venom towards true Christianity. In other words, a little bit of the truth is extracted from people around the world that have the real message of the Holy Spirit. And to the worldly and to the ungodly, it's as venom. They hate the truth. They want to be alive to their sins, so they treat the Kingdom of God and the children of God like they are snakes. They are the whole thing backwards, guys. And so, they extract a little bit of their venom, or a little bit of actual truth from the children of God, or from the Holy Spirit, maybe they themselves at one point heard from the Holy Spirit, so they extract that, and then they put that venom, or that amount of truth into a host. You could call that host a pastor, a deacon, a leader of a church. And this little bit of truth that goes into that pastor's mind does not reach his heart, so it doesn't kill him. He doesn't die to his sins. This man does not truly repent. It's just enough truth to make the rest of the congregation that he is going to preach to receive those antibodies that will fight against the truth, fight against the real substance, the real venom. So now you have a man who is able to have something extracted from him that is not the real venom, but it's the antibodies towards the venom. And anyone who receives this sort of venom, or this anti-venom, rather, they become completely or most likely, they will become completely immune to the venom. They won't receive it. They won't die from it. They won't die to their sins.

And so you have pastors all across America and all corners of the world now who have received bits and parts of the truth of God, but it has not hit their hearts. They have not died from the venom. They haven't died to their sins. They haven't died to worldliness, but their sinful nature is still in them. And they will preach very convincing sermons and tell people, “Jesus loves you as you are, brother. Grace covers over a multitude of sins.” And they will pull out all the verses of the Apostle Paul, and all the places in the Scripture that talk about grace. And anyone who hears this message says, “amen, amen”. This is cutting edge. They believe it's actually hitting their heart. And actually, guys, real anti-venom, when it's put into you, it can make you very sick. But it's not going to make you as sick as real venom would, and that's why it's pretty dangerous to use anti-venom or anything like that, unless you've really been bit by a snake.

So, these false preachers that are across America that are giving this anti-venom, they make sure that all of their people are totally asleep. They make sure that they receive this, so they can receive this lie with believing that it's really the truth. And there's other names you could call it, you could call it a placebo. They're receiving fake medicine, but in reality, they're receiving a false word from God that is putting them all to sleep. And they're basically conditioned to reject the truth. They reject that Jesus Christ can speak to you. They reject that outright because they've heard for years that the Bible is their infallible word of God, so that sounds like the truth. So they believe the bible's the word of God, so they don't believe Jesus can talk to you. Bam, right there. They've received anti-venom, okay? They read verses right out of the Bible, and they believe, no one is without sin, so we're all sinners. So again, they take a little bit of truth, then twist it to a lie. And then again, they just receive right there anti-venom, instead of coming to the truth and believing they’re sinners and repenting of sin, now they have believed this anti-venom that is fighting against the truth, that “it's OK to have sin in our life, Brothers and sisters. We are the true Church already. God loves us just as we are. You know, we're going to be sinners our whole life.” So they receive this anti-venom with joy, not even knowing or realizing that they are rejecting the true venom. They're rejecting the hard, true, truth of Jesus Christ.

Everyone who receives this anti-venom, so to speak, is deceived by Satan. They're receiving lies. They have itching ears, and they are part of the apostate church. This apostate church now is so massive and so convincing that the whole world is being given over to her witchcraft, and there being, they are being given over to a huge deception. And we have been foretold about this, the prophets revelation. We've been told about the deception that comes on mankind, and God allows it to come on the face of the whole Earth, because people's deeds are evil. They choose evil over good, dark over light. So, God gives them over to this deception. We have to be very careful if we want to enter God's kingdom and be part of the true body of Christ, that we don't take this anti-venom, that we don't take this placebo pill, that we don't take this false medicine from these people. Because you will start to think, what is so bad with this Christian culture? They are going to church. They are better than people on drugs on the street. They are better than the people that are obvious sinners. I should get my children in church so they can be raised and they could learn the scriptures and the Bible stories, put them in Sunday school, you're basically giving them anti-venom. They're receiving a little bit of truth, but they're not coming to Jesus Christ. They will never learn to really pray, never learn to hear God's voice. They will never truly repent of their sins.

 I want to read to you now, from Revelation, about what happens to those that do partake in this and receive anti-venom. This is found in Revelation chapter 18. “1After these things I saw another angel coming down from heaven, having great authority, and the earth was illuminated with his glory. 2And he cried mightily with a loud voice, saying, “Babylon the great is fallen, is fallen, and has become a dwelling place of demons, a prison for every foul spirit, and a cage for every unclean and hated bird!” Babylon is the false churches. It is those who have rejected Jesus Christ. In America. It is the apostate Church, which includes pretty much every single church across America, the 501(c)3 churches, and even the smaller home churches that have taken this anti-venom.

 “3For all the nations have drunk of the wine of the wrath of her fornication, the kings of the earth have committed fornication with her, and the merchants of the earth have become rich through the abundance of her luxury.” 4And I heard another voice from heaven saying, “Come out of her, my people, lest you share in her sins, and lest you receive of her plagues. 5For her sins have reached to heaven, and God has remembered her iniquities. 6Render to her just as she rendered to you, and repay her double according to her works; in the cup which she has mixed, mix double for her. 7In the measure that she glorified herself and lived luxuriously, in the same measure give her torment and sorrow; for she says in her heart, ‘I sit as queen, and am no widow, and will not see sorrow.’ 8Therefore her plagues will come in one day—death and mourning and famine. And she will be utterly burned with fire, for strong is the Lord God who judges her.”

These are the judgments that are coming on the false church that has taken this antiChrist message. The false churches with their false preachers, that are giving this potion against Christianity, this anti-venom. God is not pleased with the American Church. He is not pleased with that religion. He is not pleased with Christians. The warning we are given is to come out of her. If you are one of God's children, if you hear His voice, you are to “come out of her, My people. Least you share in her plagues”, at least you share in her sins. Will you come out and be separate? Or will all the judgments of God that are coming on false religion also come on you and your family? I hope that you stay separate and really hear the voice of Jesus Christ. That you hear Him and obey Him. May the grace of Jesus be with you.

Peace that passes all understanding

 Peace That Passes All Understanding

Praise Jesus today, brothers and sisters. Today, I'm down in the city getting some work done on my car. But I wanted to take just a few moments to share some things the Lord has put on my heart. I've had allergies the last few days, just because of all the pollen in the air here in California, and because of my allergies I was up later last night, and I was just thinking and praying, and the Lord put a few thoughts on my mind and in my heart, and that is what I wanted to share. It has to do with just the peace that God gives us versus false peace that the world has to offer.

Now, something that I was considering with life, and how everyone dies, and older and younger people, is the fact that it seems that God put in all of us, especially younger people the desire to live. In other words, nobody wants to die. All of us want to live a long, healthy life. We want to be remembered for doing good things. And it seems when we're young, we just have this drive to live, not to die. But older people, when I’ve talked to people that are in their eighties or nineties or close to a hundred years old, they don't have the same desire to live. Many of them have had a people who were in their family already pass away. The older you are, you've had friends die, you've had family members die, maybe your spouse already passed away. And you get to a point in your life where you're not just old or geriatric, but you actually want to die, because you really have nothing left to live for. And it's such a sad thing to see elderly people that they're just ready to die. That I got thinking to myself, do they no longer have the desire to live because they have the peace that passes all understanding? Or is it more just a selfish reason that they want to die? And is it something that God put in them? Or is it something the flesh is bringing up in them that they want to die? Because when we're young, we want to live, and when we're old, we want to die. But is that from God, or is it of the flesh? And I think honestly, for most people, living is of the flesh, and dying is of the flesh; wanting to live is wanting to live for ourselves, and wanting to die is wanting to die for ourselves.

But with Jesus Christ, to live is to live for Him, and to die is to die for Him. So it is a different kingdom and a different mentality, a different place our heart needs to be. And if our heart really is with Jesus, He gives us the peace that passes all understanding, which is different than just being elderly and wanting to die. I think, if you have grandparents who are 80, 90, 100 years old, they may want to die, but that doesn't mean that they have the peace that passes all understanding in their hearts. They probably want to pass on from this Earth because they're in a lot of physical pain. They maybe want to die just because how sad life has become for them, and how many other people have passed away. But it's hard for me to imagine that God is the one who put it in elderly people to want to die. I remember there was an old lady in my old church years ago, and she was approaching a hundred years old, and at that time, I was going to going and talking with the senior citizens, and I just asked her some questions and just about life. And basically, what she told me is she just hopes that Jesus will take her home. She is ready to die, and she has peace with her death. And it made me wonder, even at the time, is this the peace that Jesus brings? Is this the peace that passes all understanding?

And we need to be careful that we are not receiving a false peace. And a lot of people are very at peace with living or dying for themselves, guys. They are happy and content with the things of this world. And they believe that they are safe and secure in going to heaven, because at one point of their life, they have said that they were Christians. They believe that they will just go to heaven. And this is a scary thing, because it doesn't mean that we have the real peace that passes all understanding, and that we're going to be in heaven with Jesus when we die, unless we are really surrendered to Him and living according to His Holy Spirit. Jesus said, whoever of you does not forsake all that he has, can't be my disciple. And He said that anyone who sins is a slave of sin, and most people are still living in sin. I'm not here to condemn anyone, but to encourage people to come into the light, to have the peace that really passes all understanding, not just this peace that I set a prayer long ago, “I know that I'm saved. I know I'm going to heaven.” You need to check yourself. Each of us need to check our own hearts and see, is the peace that I have in me? Is it a false security that I got from church? Is it a false security I got from false doctrines from my family and from my friends, who are giving me this false hope that I'm going to heaven when I die? Or do I genuinely have the peace that passes all understanding from Jesus Christ? Can I know that I will be in heaven when I die because I'm doing the will of my father in heaven? And that is the big crux of it all. If you are right with Jesus, you will have His peace. When we are right with Jesus Christ, He gives us the comfort of His Holy Spirit. That is why the Holy Spirit is called the comforter. He comforts His children. He loves us, and He guides us into everlasting life.

But when we're not right with the Lord, our conscience pricks us. We don't have that peace. We're scared to die. We have conflict in our minds and in our hearts. We know we're not right with God and with people. So I want to encourage you to seek after that peace that passes all understanding, to get right with Jesus, of course, say the sinners prayer, but then actually come out of sins. Following Jesus is not just about confessing that were sinners, but then it is about the action of true repentance. We will put on our robes of righteousness. We will walk in purity. We will stand on the rock of Jesus Christ if we are His children. So, I hope this encourages someone to truly repent and to find the peace that passes all understanding.

“Lord Jesus, I pray for those that want your peace, I pray that they can pass from death into life, and that they will be filled with your Holy Spirit, and no matter what happens, that they will be in your hands of grace and mercy, and that they will overcome this world in your name, and that they will push out every evil and demonic thing and just come into your presence with thanksgiving, and that they will endure to the very end of their life with you in your name I pray, Lord Jesus. Amen.

The Narrow Road Gets More Narrow


The Narrow Road Gets More Narrow

The American Church cannot possibly be the straight and narrow path.  To be straight means to be righteous and holy before your GOD.  The American Church however, the have said it’s okay to be transgender, homosexual, addicted to pornography, to have every sort of sin in your life.  They say God will just forgive you and you’ll go to heaven in the end.  They have maligned the way of the straight.  The Straight and Narrow Path is of course NARROW because FEW adhere to the teachings of Jesus Christ.  It is easy for the American church to say; “We will include ALL religions, ALL beliefs, no matter what you want to believe we will accept you, you are a brother…”  But that was not the teachings of Jesus.  Jesus made it clear that He was and is the WAY the LIFE AND the TRUTH!  And if you don’t want to listen to Him and OBEY Him, you don’t have life and you are not on the straight and narrow path.  The way that leads to destruction is broad, and the American church is part of that broad path that MANY are on.  Over the last 20 years however, Christianity has been on the decline; 20 years ago 90% of people in the U.S. would say that they are Christians, they go to church and they pray.  But nowadays that’s only 50% or less, that is, that say that they pray or go to church and have a relationship with God.  So, out of that 50% what percent of that 50% do we think actually are on the straight and narrow path?  Maybe 1%?  The straight and narrow path truly is straight and narrow because ONLY the righteous can walk it, only the pure of heart, only those who have put their faith 100% in their savior Jesus Christ, not religion, not the broad path, not selling out to world religions, but those who have TRULY FOUND JESUS and who bow ONLY TO HIM!  Have you bowed your knee to sin, to corruption, to the lies of the American church?  Have you bowed to the broad way? Are you walking on that broad path to HELL like the world?  Or are you one of the FEW who are on the STRAIGHT AND NARROW PATH to everlasting life?  I hope that you are.  And if you realize that you are not, I encourage you to pray and seek Jesus.  He is not far from those who want to find Him, who want to repent and who want life.  Pray to Him and say; “Lord please forgive me of my sins, I want to repent, I want truth in my heart.  Please let me be BORN AGAIN!”  If you pray to Him from the sincerity of your heart He WILL forgive you and He will accept you.  But if you reject Him for the broad path and if you deny Him, He will also reject and deny you.  May the grace of Jesus be with you.

The Deeper Rooted Sin in America's Church

The Deeper Rooted Sin in America's Church We all know that there are obvious sins in most of the churches, sins like homosexuality, broken marriages, now transgenders, fornication, adultery. There's a lot of these obvious sins that as Christians that are very evangelical and upright who want to appear good on the outside, they will stay away from these sorts of churches. And there are churches across America who are very anti-homosexual, very anti-drugs and alcohol. They don't fill up their church pews with those sorts of people, and because of that, likely they have less people in their church. The pastors of these sorts of churches are who I want to address, and the sorts of Christians who attend these sorts of more pure in appearance churches. So, it is obvious that it's easier to preach, to the choir about these sorts of things, if you know that the people in your choir are not drug addicts, they're not transgenders, they're not homosexuals, they're very right-winged political Americans who are for the things that you agree with. It's easy to speak against abortion and homosexuality. It's easy to speak for the validity of the scripture and all those sorts of things that every right-winged Christian would stand for. However, there is a deeper and a bigger problem with the American church and the churches across the world than just these visible sins that everyone likes to pick on. And that problem is sin in general, but it's this huge disconnection between the body of Christ and Jesus Christ Himself. Remember that Jesus said, “My sheep know My voice. They follow Me, they don't follow a stranger. They will by no means listen to a stranger”. but the issue we have today is people who think that they know Jesus because they know things about Him from the bible, they think that is hearing God. They believe that maybe their King James version is the word of God to them, so they never look any deeper than the bible to hear from God. They disregard the fact that Abraham and all the early prophets did not have a bible. They did not have the New Testament that we have today. They did not have all the revelations about Jesus Christ that we have today. For example, Noah, he did not have the New Testament. He didn't know about the law and the prophets. But he had faith, and that was accredited to him as righteousness, because he lived as an upright man. He lived according to his conscience and when God spoke to him, he obeyed God in righteousness. He was God's child. And he proved it with his actions, not his theology, not because he adhered to a set of principles that a group during his time held to. But he believed God, and he demonstrated his faith with his works. This is the big problem in churches today. The church today thinks that she is pure before God because she has adequate enough theology. Christians think that they are good people because they appear to be good on the outside. They're not on drugs, they're not drinking too much, they're not sleeping around, they're not homosexual or transgenders. They're keeping all of the law as much as they know, so they must be good. They're making enough money, their house in order, so God probably will accept them into His kingdom. That's what they think. And so, these people are just looking for a good bible believing church, a good God-fearing church, they think. And when they find it, it's the "us 4 and no more", mentality. And they feel safe and secure and they believe that they're going to heaven. The problem is they are not righteous. They're not like Noah. They're not like Abraham, Isaac or Jacob. They don't hear from God and they're fine with that because they have the bible. There's a deep-rooted problem here that's been going on for years. And that is, people are disconnected from their Creator. They think that they have found life because they know the bible. It's exactly how Jesus said “you search the scriptures, for in them you think that you have life, but you refuse to come to Me that you may have life.” Christians think they found life because they have found a bible-fearing church, because they found a preacher who preaches God's word, they say. But they don't know the One, the only One who has the words of life. This is a very deep, deep problem. If you don't hear Jesus' voice, if you can't hear the voice of Truth, then you don't have life, you don't have salvation, you're not part of the body of Christ. It doesn't matter what name is on your home group, on your fellowship group, on your church group, it doesn't matter because none of that is going to get you into heaven. It matters if you know Jesus Christ, if you love Him in the depths of your heart, in the depths of your being. And it matters if you're obeying Him, living for Him every single day with all of your heart, soul, mind and strength. This is the big problem in the churches that are more evangelical, more bible-fearing. Although they appear good on the outside and are not doing the big sins that Christians see as the big sins. They have no real fear of God. They have no relationship with Him. They're not obedient to Him. They don't have any genuine faith like Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, like Noah, any of those men of old that knew God, they are not like them. They don't even attempt to pattern their lives like them. Jesus is alive. That's what the church today does not know or understand. God is not stuck in bible times; God is not dead. And getting to know God certainly isn't about just submitting yourself to the supposed authorities that don't know God anyway. Jesus is alive. He is our high priest. He is our pastor, our teacher, our Lord our savior. He is our Father. And if you want to get to know Him, it does not start by going into church, trying to start a "revolution" in church. Getting to know Jesus starts with a prayer life, getting to know Him in the quiet place, surrendering your mind and your heart to Him, saying, “Lord please change me, mold me to your image. You are the potter; I am the clay.” And when we are separate from the world, separate from dead religion, when we sever ourselves from family members and friends that we don't need in our life anyway, I'm not talking about your wife or your children if God has put them in your life, I’m talking about people that have no need to be in your life, that you have allowed into your life, those people you should eliminate from your life, there are people that have tried to push their way into your own private business, maybe from a church that you've been attending, your workplace. But they are not people that God wants in your life. Following Jesus is about disconnecting from them, disconnecting from people that are trying to destroy you and your family unit. Following Jesus is not about getting into religion, getting into church, getting into a bible study. It's not about that. Getting to know the creator of life, is about you reconciling with the creator of life going to Him through prayer, surrendering your entire life to Him, and then, once you have waited for the Holy Spirit, and you have become reborn, then He will lead you on this new road of life. That's what being reborn is all about. Being reborn and being a new creation is not about church attendance, tithing, social groups. Following Jesus Christ is about receiving His Holy Spirit and being directed by the Spirit of life every single day for the rest of your life. Do you really want life? Do you want the life that Jesus Christ offers? Or are you content with the religions of this world? What will you choose? Will you choose life with Jesus? Or will you choose death with religion? May the grace of Jesus be with you

2023 Asbury revival

2023 Asbury revival

I read from 2 Corinthians chapter 6:14-18; “Do not be unequally yoked together with unbelievers.  For what fellowship has righteousness with lawlessness?  And what communion has light with darkness?  And what accord has Christ with Belial?  Or what part has a believer with an unbeliever?  And what agreement has the temple o God with idols?  For YOU are the temple of the living God.  As God has said: “I will dwell in them and walk among them.  I will be their God, and they shall be My people.”  Therefore; “Come OUT from among them, (that would be FALSE believers) and be separate, says the Lord.  (That means be separate from dead religion, the false churches across America) Do not touch what is unclean, and I will receive you.  I will be a Father to you, and you shall be My sons and daughters, says the LORD Almighty.”  There will NOT be a revival within dead religion, that is the FALSE churches across the America.  The spiritually dead cannot revive themselves, and they certainly cannot revive ANYONE ELSE.  They are FULL of homosexuals, they are full of impure marriages, lustful thoughts, lustful images, lustful men and women, all sorts of men and women who have fallen into idolatry, greed and EVERY sort of sin that the flesh gives in to.  If you touch what is unclean the judgment of GOD will come upon you, the SAME judgments that are coming upon the false church.  Are you separate from DEAD RELIGION, are you separate from these churches across America that are as prostitute houses, whore houses?  Are you separate from them or are you touching what is unclean?  May the grace of Jesus be with you.

The Church Across USA is a False Prophet


The Church Across USA is a False Prophet

The church across America is a false prophet.  They are a BAD tree that produces BAD fruit. (Matt 7:15-20)  If you think that its fruit is good you are being deceived.  Jesus for years has been calling His TRUE church OUT OF HER, COME OUT OF HER MY PEOPLE, least you share in her sins and receive of her plagues. (Rev. 18:4)  Spiritually dead people cannot revive themselves, they certainly cannot revive others, and no one will be able to see or hear God clearly in those organizations.   (Matt. 15:14) They WILL however work many sins and blunders to deceive, if possible, even the elect. (Matt. 24:24)   Remember that when people say; “Jesus is here, He’s in this room… you have to come over here to find Jesus…”  Don’t believe it.  (Matt 24:26-28) If you want to know Jesus, YOU YOURSELF need to receive Him into your heart, into your life.  You need to truly repent of your sins.  (Acts 2:38-39) Come into the fold, (John 10:9)  but don’t follow false prophets, false teachers, false movements and false revivals. (Matt. 24: 11-13)  Don’t be deceived by them.  A bad tree always produces bad fruit.  (Matt. 7:18) May the grace of Jesus be with you. (Galatians 6:18)

2023 What you Need to Know

 Transcript: 2023 What You Need To Know!

Well, praise Jesus everyone. It is a blessing to be in the hands of the Lord, guided by Him. We know that in the end times there will be pestilences, famines, earthquakes. All these things are the beginnings of the birth pains, and the day of the Lord, the return of the Lord is still to come. But we also know that it will not happen immediately like some suppose. There are a lot of prophets who prophesy false things. They prophesy things will just get better, that we will "break the yoke of Babylon, that America will be great again, even without God and everyone will be able to unite and have peace. These are the things in the promises that the anti-Christ promise for the world. Peace without God, happiness without reality, a virtual reality, a reality that is pushed forward by artificial intelligence and an online presence. The whole world is so blind, they cannot tell what is happening. They cannot tell what season we’re in. They cannot tell that things are getting worse and worse. Remember that Jesus talked about the fig tree. And He said that, when you see the fruit becoming tender, you know that the time is near. We obviously can tell if we are with the Lord between good fruit and bad fruit. We can tell if the culture is good or bad. We can tell if the generation is good or bad. We can see the signs of the time. It's pretty interesting, though, how a lot of people try to predict what God is going to do, thinking that they can tell exactly what God's going to do by the signs of the time. They would be deceived, because no one knows what God is going to do, the things that He has set in His own timing. But there are a lot of people prophets, whether they are in the churches or on the Internet alone, that think they can predict the future based on prophecies and all that sort of thing. The other day, I made some polls. You can look at those on my channel. Maybe you took those polls, but it's really interesting. I did that just so, Christians those that are serious, can see kind of where people are, to see how all of us are being affected by the same things. I thought it would be insightful for other brothers and sisters to see that it's not just an internal struggle, but other parts of the body of Christ are struggling with intrusive thoughts or being accused by the devil. If you go and look at some of those statistics or those polls, they're quite interesting because it shows that we're all in this fight against evil together. But the hope is in Jesus Christ. You know, all of us are being accused by Satan if we are in the fight, because we know that Satan is the accuser of the brethren who accuses us day and night. So, if you are not being accused at all by the Devil, maybe you're not even in the fight at all, but if you are being accused regularly or every single day, you likely are in the fight. And you need to continue to draw close to Jesus. If you draw close to God, He will draw close to you. If you resist the Devil, he will flee. But the important thing is to continually stay in prayer, to continually be resisting the Devil, because if you don't continue to resist the Devil, he's going to win. Satan is very persistent, and he tries to ebb away at the Saints. That's why it's written that he tries to wear down the Saints in the end times. He continues to ebb away your desire to live if you string away from God. He heaps up heavy, heavy burdens on the children of God, making them feel so weighted down. They can't get up in the morning, they can't say a prayer, they can't help out their family, they can't do anything because they're so weighted down by the feelings of feeling inadequate, or broken, just accused. All these things, guys, we have to push through to Jesus on and make sure that we're staying close to the Lord. There's one interesting thing that I wanted to bring up. One of those first polls that I put up was in regard to the Day of the Lord, when God will restore the Kingdom. And this wasn't just something that I thought of, it's actually from Acts. And probably it looks like maybe 50% of you that took the poll already knew that, but the question that I posed there on that poll was right from Acts, and it's where the apostles ask the Lord about “at this time, are you going to restore Israel?” I want to read it for you. This is found in Acts chapter 1, I’m starting in Verse 6. “Therefore, when they had come together, they asked Him, saying, “Lord, will You at this time restore the kingdom to Israel?” So, they asked this exact question, the same question that people are asking today, when is God going to send His son to the Earth? Some Christians are just waiting for the rapture. When is going to be the time that all things are going to be restored? Lord? But what does Jesus reply? He says to them, “It is not for you to know times or seasons, which the Father has put in His own authority. This is interesting, guys, because so many prophets on the Internet and in churches are saying, “you can know the times in the seasons, you can be able to know exactly what God is going to do.” And they say, just read the scriptures and you know the whole playbook. That is a lie. That's not what Jesus taught. That is not what He said. You can read it for yourselves in Acts chapter 1. This is not someone s private interpretation. This is not someone's private idea. This is what Jesus told His disciples. He said to them, this is verse 7, “It is not for you to know times or seasons which the father has put in His own authority.” So, what did Jesus want them to have? What did He know they needed in this time? He says, “But you shall receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you, and you shall be witnesses to me in Jerusalem and in all Judea and Samaria and to the end of the Earth.” This is the important thing that the whole church is missing, while the whole church is wondering, “Lord, are you going to rapture me tomorrow? Lord, when is the end of the world going to be? Lord, When are you returning on the clouds with the angels of heaven?” You have all the Christians having a huge debate about the rapture, the return of the Lord of His pre-trib or post-trib, and giving all these apocalyptic updates, thinking that they can predict by the scriptures. And Jesus Himself has said, you will not know the times or the seasons, but you need to wait for the Holy Spirit. That is what the whole church is missing. While they're looking to the left at all the things that they think they can predict that only God knows, they are rejecting the Holy Spirit, the more important thing. If you reject to receive the Holy Spirit, you're not going to make it into God's kingdom anyway. You're not going to hear Him. You're not going to receive His baptism or His approval. You're not going to receive His blessing. So if you do want to hear from God in 2023, in the day that we're living, stop focusing on what all of these prophets and people are saying and receive the Holy Spirit that Jesus promised from the beginning. Now, I know there are some Christians, not all of you, but some, that say the gift of the Holy Spirit was only for the original apostles, and the signs and the wonders and all of those things were only for the twelve and for the select few. Well, obviously that's not true, because if you continue to read in Acts, and you get to this famous verse that most of the Pentecostals know, Acts Chapter 2, Peter gives this sermon, and then the people say when they heard this, they were cut to the heart. And they said to Peter and the rest of the Apostles, “Men and brethren, what shall we do? They realized they were the ones that put Jesus on the cross. They had sin in their life, they needed to repent. And so, they're asking the apostles, what in the world do we need to do to be saved and to get right with God? How do we hear Him? How do we receive His blessing? How do we come out of the condemnation that leads to our damnation? And so, Peter said to them, “Repent and let every one of you be baptized.” Did he say, only Let Jews be baptized? Did he say gentiles are excluded? Did he say it was only the twelve? None of that is in the scripture, but “Every single one of you be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ, for the remission of sins, and you shall receive the gift of the Holy Spirit. For the promise is to you and to your children and to all of those who are afar off as many as the Lord God will call”. So, this gift of the Holy Spirit, or the Baptism of the Holy Spirit, is not just for the twelve. It's not just for the Church of the first century. But it is for all of those to the end of time, to all nations, tongues, whether they are Jews or Gentiles, whether they were Pagans or whatever religion you were, the Holy Spirit is for you, if you desire to repent. If you want to hear from God, you need to receive the Holy Spirit. You need to pray and say, “Lord Jesus, I know all power and all authority has been given to you. I know you died on the cross and you resurrected. I know you are the high priest. I come to you Lord in humility, and I ask you to please speak to me. Please let me receive the baptism that your father promised. Let me receive your Holy Spirit.” And you need to wait for the Holy Spirit. Jesus showed us the way to be baptized in water. There are a lot of very rebellious children of God. They don't want to be baptized in water. And they say, “the thief on the Cross wasn't baptized, brother, the thief on the Cross made it to Paradise, and he wasn't baptized, so I don't have to either.” But, but none of us are hanging up on a Roman cross. We can find water. We can obey Jesus if we want to. So, I want to encourage you that if you are wanting to get right with God, find someone who can baptize you in water. Find a brother or sister. Find someone with faith. Maybe your dad, your own mom, your own brother and your family. Finds someone willing to baptize you. Be baptized in the name of Jesus. And then pray and ask Jesus for the gift of the Holy Spirit. People will say, “well, who will baptize me?” They have faith that Jesus Christ can do all things, but they don't have faith that God could even find them some water or someone to baptize them. How does that work? If we have any faith at all, then we ought to pray and say, “Lord, please, make the way for me to be baptized. Make the way for me to be set free from the bonds of sin. Make the way for me to be born again that I may be a new creation, having a new heart in a new mind. And let me receive your Holy Spirit.” And if you wait on Him, He will give you the better gift of the Holy Spirit, to lead you, to guide you, to tell you of things to come, to bring to your memory things that you already know, things that you have known from your childhood about the faith. He will do that for you because He loves you. He doesn't want to condemn you. God did not send His son to just shame you and say “You're going to hell.” Jesus came into this world so that we could see the light and come into the light. All of us were on our way to hell, because all of us have fallen short of the glory of God. But there is a glorious light through the son of God He was prophesied about. Isaiah chapter 53 talks about the suffering servant. The suffering servant is not the nation of Israel. Israel itself can never atone for anybody’s sins. Jesus is the perfect servant. And He showed us how to be servants, how to wash other people s feet, how to lay down our life. And Jesus is the perfect lamb of God. He is the one who takes away the sins of the world. We heap our burdens upon Him, and when we call on Him, He cleanses us from unrighteousness. We are washed and made new. We come into the new covenant that He set for all of those who would believe in the new covenant. We have to be in communion with Jesus. Coming into that new covenant, we eat Jesus' flesh, we drink His blood, and we have life in His name. This gift, the gift of life, is not just for Jews. It is not just for priests or pastors or someone that is holier than us. The gift of the Holy Spirit is for everyone that will just call on the name of Jesus Christ and say, “Lord, save me. I need to be saved from death.” And if we call on the name of the Lord, He helps us. No longer will death have its sting. We don't need to fear death or hell, but we can know that Jesus Christ is our salvation. We can know and have assurance in Him if we walk with Him. The Holy Spirit is given for each of us as our comforter. And if we come into right relationship with God, He comforts us. He lets us know that we are doing what is good in His eyes. He gives us many confirmations. It is truly a blessing to be in the Lord’s good will. Often you know, the devil accuses us. There's been times in my life where the devil would just accuse me, day after day after day, and people as well would bring their accusations, heaping them up, and I'd just pray, and I'd say, “Lord, if any of this is true, if I have sinned against you, if I do what is wrong, let it be known to me. But if I am doing what is right before you, send me a sign.” One time, I prayed that prayer, and it was at evening, and I said in my in my heart, “Lord, you can show me any sign of confirmation. It would be really a blessing if I just saw a shooting star right now, but obviously you don't have to do that.” And as soon as I was finished praying with that prayer, I saw a big shooting star going across the sky right over my head, and I knew the Lord had His blessing on my head and on my family. That has not been an exception in my life as I have followed the Lord. He has shown me His rainbow multiple times. He has shown me that He has His blessing on me, even though Satan continues to heap up His accusations. So, the Lord is my comforter. He comforts me, He blesses me, He protects me. And I am no exception. He blesses and He protects, and He gives His Holy Spirit to everyone that is a part of His true body. If you call on the name of the Lord, if you ask Him for the comforter, He will comfort you. He will bless you. He will pull you into His fold. Remember that Jesus describes Himself as a chicken. Of all the things God could describe Himself as, that seems pretty interesting that He'd describe Himself as a mother hen, a chicken. But He says, as a chicken, as the mother hen gathers her chicklets, those little chicks under her wing, He wants to gather His people. And that is what Jesus wants to do for you and for me. He wants to gather us under His wing of protection to comfort us. But if we refuse His comfort, He's never going to comfort us in sin. He's never going to comfort us when we are in bondage, in the grips of Satan and choosing to rebel against Him. That is why many Christians pray, and they don't hear from God. They feel no comfort. All they feel is condemnation, because they never receive the Holy Spirit of comfort. They don't receive the comforter. And obviously He's not going to comfort you in your sins and in your perversion. So, if you do want the approval from God in His comfort and to not fear death, if you want life to be bubbling up in you, then you need to truly repent, put on righteousness, be baptized in water, just as Peter said in his Great sermon there in Acts. And we can know that if we do repent, if we're baptized in water, and we ask for the Baptism of the Holy Spirit, that He will give us the Holy Spirit, because He loves us and He wants to give us the better gift of the Holy Spirit, to lead us and guide us. He won't give us a serpent or a devil or a snake or a rock. He will give us the bread of life. If even evil fathers in this world know how to give their sons and daughters good gifts, then how much more does our father in heaven know how to give us the good gift of the Holy Spirit? So, I want to encourage you, if you are someone wanting to hear God, if you're wanting direction in this year of 2023, what you need is the comforter. You need the Holy Spirit. You need Him in your life. You need to know Him, and you need to obey Him. So, I encourage you to pray, say, “Lord, please open my ears to hear you, open in my eyes to see you. May I receive your Holy Spirit, and may I have your blessing in my life.” May the grace of Jesus be with you.
