Food Laws, are we to keep them today?  What foods are "clean" and "unclean."   


A reader writes:

Dear Sir:

I am enjoying this website very much because it is
helping me tremendously with the understanding of the
scriptures.  I feel so fortunate to have found this
for my study of our Father's Word.

Please help me to understand the topic of what foods a
Christian should or should not eat. I have read
Ezekiel but I am still not clear.

Can you explain it to me?

Thank you,

{Xxxxxx] in Michigan


Answer:

Hello; thank you for the kind words, they mean much to me.  And the written Word of God—the Holy Bible—as you are no doubt observing is indeed both profound, deep, inexhaustible, God-inspired, and with proper interpretation is to be trusted at every place.  It is God-breathed Scripture, profitable unto salvation for every happy soul whom believes upon it. 

    While we aren't admonished to eat clean anymore ("eating clean" is what you are referring to by "the food laws"), they are however healthy for us.  I know that some people say that we are to still keep the food laws, but the New Testament clarifies that they are no longer by commandment, and thus are not necessary for us to keep (though there is nothing wrong with keeping them—just don't think that it will get you to Heaven or anything like that).  I will give Scripture to document that statement momentarily. 

    But first let me make mention that "eating clean" is not the same as the so-called "Kosher food" of the modern-day Judaics.  They (Judaism) are today every bit the hypocrites that Christ so often admonished their religious predecessors (Pharisees) of in the New Testament.  For instance, you have heard of "Kosher Ham," haven't you?  Well, in the Old Testament of the Bible ALL pork is considered unclean (and thus prohibited under the old food laws).  With Kosher Ham, a rabbi is present during the slaughter and that somehow makes a difference.  Also see the video which records the shocking cruelty and barbarity of the Jewish Kosher slaughter technique, which is wholly against anything God has ever stated regarding the ethical and humane treatment of animals under or care and use: VIDEO: The Judaic inhumanity Of Their "Kosher" Slaughterhouses 

    I myself eat clean (but never Kosher!), not because I feel that I have to, but it is just something a little extra that I do.  These food laws are found in Leviticus chapter eleven (and elsewhere), and a short overview of them is that, of the waters, you can only eat that which has both fins and scales.  So clams, lobster, whale, shark, frog, etc. would be prohibited.  You may eat no pork products.  All vegetables and fruits are clean (I have heard some say that mushrooms are unclean, but I cannot find Biblical documentation for that—thus, I eat mushrooms; Campbell's Mushroom Soup, that is.)  We are to eat no blood (and this is a big one with God—found in at least four Bible books, starting with Noah in Genesis), so the Polish and German "Blood Soups" are out.  Chicken, beef, lamb, veal are all fine, as are deer.  That pretty much covers the American diet.  For a more detailed account of the food laws, including which birds to eat, and which insects (oddly, locusts are clean food), and which smaller animals, refer to Leviticus chapter eleven.  (Note:  The term, "Chewing the cud," that you will encounter there in the food laws refers to the regurgitation of the food from the stomach, like a cow does) 

    Now, some will say that the food laws are still in effect, but the below Scripture shows that Peter was informed that all animals are clean, as are all men.  So that to say that not all animals are clean is to say that some men aren't clean.  This is not the case.  Read the below and see the analogy (type) that God used with Peter regarding comparing men to animals, clean and unclean, common or uncommon.  Remembering that for the "antitype" to be true, the "type" must also be true.  A little more explanation is needful here: 

    In other words, for the true event or thing (the antitype) to be true, so too must that which is being used as an example (type) also be true.  Or more clearly by example:  Jesus Christ is referred to as the Lamb, reminiscent of the Passover lamb.  Thus, the actual lamb used in the Old Testament Passover ceremony would be the "type," and Jesus Christ would be the "antitype," the final fulfillment of the sacrificial Lamb.  My point is that as you read the below first Scripture, you will be met with a situation: was God calling all animals clean, or was He just calling all men clean when he said: "What God hath cleansed, that call not thou common" (Acts 10:15b).  The above explanation I believe should document that since we know that God means that all men can be clean, He therefore has to mean that all foods can be clean--because for the antitype (men) to be true, the type (animals) must also be true.  This applies to all "types" in the Bible.  Now to our Scripture, from which I drew that last above verse excerpt:

Acts 10:9-29
9 On the morrow, as they went on their journey, and drew nigh unto the city, Peter went up upon the housetop to pray about the sixth hour:
10 And he became very hungry, and would have eaten: but while they made ready, he fell into a trance,
11 And saw heaven opened, and a certain vessel descending unto him, as it had been a great sheet knit at the four corners, and let down to the earth:
12 Wherein were all manner of fourfooted beasts of the earth, and wild beasts, and creeping things, and fowls of the air. [presumably there were unclean things in this collection as Peter will indicate]
13 And there came a voice to him, Rise, Peter; kill, and eat.
14 But Peter said, Not so, Lord; for I have never eaten any thing that is common or unclean.
15 And the voice spake unto him again the second time, What God hath cleansed, that call not thou common.
16 This was done thrice: and the vessel was received up again into heaven.
17 Now while Peter doubted in himself what this vision which he had seen should mean, behold, the men which were sent from Cornelius had made inquiry for Simon's house, and stood before the gate,
18 And called, and asked whether Simon, which was surnamed Peter, were lodged there.
19 While Peter thought on the vision, the Spirit said unto him, Behold, three men seek thee.
20 Arise therefore, and get thee down, and go with them, doubting nothing: for I have sent them.
21 Then Peter went down to the men which were sent unto him from Cornelius; and said, Behold, I am he whom ye seek: what is the cause wherefore ye are come?
22 And they said, Cornelius the centurion, a just man, and one that feareth God, and of good report among all the nation of the Jews, was warned from God by an holy angel to send for thee into his house, and to hear words of thee.
23 Then called he them in, and lodged them. And on the morrow Peter went away with them, and certain brethren from Joppa accompanied him.
24 And the morrow after they entered into Caesarea. And Cornelius waited for them, and had called together his kinsmen and near friends.
25 And as Peter was coming in, Cornelius met him, and fell down at his feet, and worshipped him.
26 But Peter took him up, saying, Stand up; I myself also am a man.
27 And as he talked with him, he went in, and found many that were come together.
28 And he said unto them, Ye know how that it is an unlawful thing for a man that is a Jew to keep company, or come unto one of another nation; but God hath shewed me that I should not call any man common or unclean.
29 Therefore came I unto you without gainsaying, as soon as I was sent for: I ask therefore for what intent ye have sent for me?  KJV

Hebrews 9:8-14
8 The Holy Ghost this signifying, that the way into the holiest of all was not yet made manifest, while as the first tabernacle was yet standing:
9 Which was a figure for the time then present, in which were offered both gifts and sacrifices, that could not make him that did the service perfect, as pertaining to the conscience;
10 Which stood only in meats [all food types] and drinks, and divers washings, and carnal ordinances, imposed on them until the time of reformation.
11 But Christ being come an high priest of good things to come, by a greater and more perfect tabernacle, not made with hands, that is to say, not of this building;
12 Neither by the blood of goats and calves, but by his own blood he entered in once into the holy place, having obtained eternal redemption for us.
13 For if the blood of bulls and of goats, and the ashes of an heifer sprinkling the unclean, sanctifieth to the purifying of the flesh:
14 How much more shall the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit offered himself without spot to God, purge your conscience from dead works to serve the living God?  KJV 

1 Corinthians 6:12-14
12 All things are lawful unto me, but all things are not expedient: all things are lawful for me, but I will not be brought under the power of any.
13 Meats for the belly, and the belly for meats: but God shall destroy both it and them. Now the body is not for fornication, but for the Lord; and the Lord for the body.
14 And God hath both raised up the Lord, and will also raise up us by his own power.  KJV 

Hebrews 13:7-15
7 Remember them which have the rule over you, who have spoken unto you the word of God: whose faith follow, considering the end of their conversation.
8 Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and to day, and for ever.
9 Be not carried about with divers and strange doctrines. For it is a good thing that the heart be established with grace; not with meats, which have not profited them that have been occupied therein.
10 We have an altar, whereof they have no right to eat which serve the tabernacle.
11 For the bodies of those beasts, whose blood is brought into the sanctuary by the high priest for sin, are burned without the camp.
12 Wherefore Jesus also, that he might sanctify the people with his own blood, suffered without the gate.
13 Let us go forth therefore unto him without the camp, bearing his reproach.
14 For here have we no continuing city, but we seek one to come.
15 By him therefore let us offer the sacrifice of praise to God continually, that is, the fruit of our lips giving thanks to his name.  KJV 

1 Timothy 4:1-5
4:1 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;
2 Speaking lies in hypocrisy; having their conscience seared with a hot iron;
3 Forbidding to marry
[as the Catholic clergy are so burdened—to tragic result], and commanding to abstain from meats [foods], which God hath created to be received with thanksgiving of them which believe and know the truth.
4 For every creature of God is good, and nothing to be refused, if it be received with thanksgiving:
5 For it is sanctified by the word of God and prayer.  KJV

Note on the above:  Those who try to say that the food laws are still in effect will read the above verse three as:  "commanding to abstain from [THOSE PARTICULAR] meats [omitted comma] which God hath created to be received [added period]", omitting the comma after the word meats, and in their mind inserting the bracketed words, and cutting off the sentence and mentally pacing a premature period mark in.  Which is a corruption of the text, however unwillful.  The text reads fine in the Bible and is quite clear that God was referring to all food when He inspired to be written the verse as thus: "commanding to abstain from meats, which God hath created to be received with thanksgiving of them which believe and know the truth."  The key to interpreting this verse is in the (omitted by some in their minds) last sentence fragment: "which God hath created to be received with thanksgiving of them which believe and know the truth".  In other words, to eat it giving thanks to the Lord for the sustenance; kind of like when Christians say a blessing before eating a holiday meal. 

    Collateral, though somewhat off-topic, information would be found among other places, in: 

Genesis 9:1-4
9:1 And God blessed Noah and his sons, and said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth.
2 And the fear of you and the dread of you shall be upon every beast of the earth, and upon every fowl of the air, upon all that moveth upon the earth, and upon all the fishes of the sea; into your hand are they delivered.
3 Every moving thing that liveth shall be meat for you; even as the green herb have I given you all things.
4 But flesh with the life thereof, which is the blood thereof, shall ye not eat.  KJV 
[Note: But this is BEFORE God gave the food laws in Leviticus] 

1 Corinthians 8:4-13
4 As concerning therefore the eating of those things that are offered in sacrifice unto idols, we know that an idol is nothing in the world, and that there is none other God but one.
5 For though there be that are called gods, whether in heaven or in earth, (as there be gods many, and lords many,)
6 But to us there is but one God, the Father, of whom are all things, and we in him; and one Lord Jesus Christ, by whom are all things, and we by him.
7 Howbeit there is not in every man that knowledge: for some with conscience of the idol unto this hour eat it as a thing offered unto an idol; and their conscience being weak is defiled.
8 But meat commendeth us not to God: for neither, if we eat, are we the better; neither, if we eat not, are we the worse.
9 But take heed lest by any means this liberty of yours become a stumblingblock to them that are weak.
10 For if any man see thee which hast knowledge sit at meat in the idol's temple, shall not the conscience of him which is weak be emboldened to eat those things which are offered to idols;
11 And through thy knowledge shall the weak brother perish, for whom Christ died?
12 But when ye sin so against the brethren, and wound their weak conscience, ye sin against Christ.
13 Wherefore, if meat make my brother to offend, I will eat no flesh while the world standeth, lest I make my brother to offend.  KJV

    And finally:

Colossians 2:16-23
16 Let no man therefore judge you in meat, or in drink, or in respect of an holyday, or of the new moon, or of the sabbath days:
17 Which are a shadow of things to come; but the body is of Christ.
18 Let no man beguile you of your reward in a voluntary humility and worshipping of angels, intruding into those things which he hath not seen, vainly puffed up by his fleshly mind,
19 And not holding the Head, from which all the body by joints and bands having nourishment ministered, and knit together, increaseth with the increase of God.
20 Wherefore if ye be dead with Christ from the rudiments of the world, why, as though living in the world, are ye subject to ordinances,
21(Touch not; taste not; handle not;
22 Which all are to perish with the using;) after the commandments and doctrines of men?
23 Which things have indeed a shew of wisdom in will worship, and humility, and neglecting of the body; not in any honour to the satisfying of the flesh.  KJV

Peace to you in Christ Jesus.

Tim LaHaye and his "Left Behind" Rapture $erie$

 

A (new) reader writes:

3 Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition;
4 Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God.
5 Remember ye not, that, when I was yet with you, I told you these things?  (KJV)  

Nick,

Thanks for making yourself available for questions.

I'm currently undertaking to study " Understanding Bible Prophecy for yourself " by Tim Lahaye. I wish to read from learned authors like Tim and You even if your conclusions are different. If one contrasts your study and his I'm not sure on which side of the rapture debate they will end up on, but their knowledge of Biblical Prophecy will improve exponentially.  

Please look at the "falling away first" portion of verse 3.

I'm sure you know where this is going.
                            Thanks,

                               [Xxxxxx]


Answer:

Hmm...  Hello [Xxxxx].  Tim LaHaye, you say?  So, you want to learn "Understanding Bible Prophecy for yourself" with Tim LaHaye, do you?  What is it exactly that are seeking to learn?  How to go to Hell?  That is all that Tim LaHaye and his cohorts could ever teach you about "Understanding Bible Prophecy for yourself.

    You mention in your E-mail the term: "'falling away first' portion of verse 3.", The two English words "falling away" are the translation of a single Greek word.  I will explain that word momentarily. 

    But first let me say that I am not "jumping on you" here, but I don't think that you realize how dangerous this man and his teachings are.  The sad thing is that millions of Christians have been misled by this man.  And when you promote this man's work you become partaker in his evil deeds:

2 John 11
11 For he that biddeth him God speed is partaker of his evil deeds.  KJV

    You say that, "I'm sure you know where this is going".  I wonder if YOU know where "this is going."  Let me explain: 

    The term "falling away" in the Scripture that you supplied (reproduced below) is the translation of the lone Greek word apostasia.  That's apostasy in the English, [Xxxxx]!  I have actually heard nit wit Rapture teachers say that this "falling away" is their Rapture!  When in fact it is God's prophecy that the churches would apostatize away from the truth, away from God and Jesus Christ, and into antichrist's (satan's) arms. 

   Observe:

2 Thessalonians 2:1-4
2:1 Now we beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and by our gathering together unto him,
2 That ye be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as from us, as that the day of Christ is at hand.
3 Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition;
4 Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God.  KJV

falling away: NT (Greek New Testament Word)646  apostasia (ap-os-tas-ee'-ah); feminine of the same as NT:647; defection from truth (properly, the state) ["apostasy"]:  KJV - falling away, forsake.

NT:647  apostasion (ap-os-tas'-ee-on); neuter of a (presumed) adj. from a derivative of NT:868; properly, something separative, i.e. (specially) divorce:  KJV - (writing of) divorcement.

(NT:868  aphistemi (af-is'-tay-mee); frm NT:575 and NT:2476; to remove, i.e. (actively) instigate to revolt; usually (reflexively) to desist, desert, etc.:  KJV - depart, draw (fall) away, refrain, withdrawself.

(Biblesoft's New Exhaustive Strong's Numbers and Concordance with Expanded Greek-Hebrew Dictionary. Copyright © 1994, 2003 Biblesoft, Inc. and International Bible Translators, Inc.)

    That's where Tim LaHaye will take you: revolting against God, divorced from God, and defecting away from the truth. 

    Tim LaHaye has betrayed Christianity for filthy lucre, and he (and all false teachers) have tons of it (money) because Christians support them—to their own destruction and the dismantlement of the Christian faith.  Tim LaHaye sells his lies and then he even tells you that they are fiction, but he presents them as fact (I can only but imagine the folly in his "Understanding Bible Prophecy for yourself" class!).  He only adds the disclaimer about them, being fiction to avoid liability.  Below I have highlighted the incriminating term from his Website search result.  Observe the below from a Google search on "Tim LaHaye"; it is from his own Website advertisement: 

Biography and information about Tim Lahaye Ministries, the Left Behind fiction series, and the Tim Lahaye School of Prophecy. Links to related sites.

[ More results from www.timlahaye.com ]

     Be careful ,my friend, you are in dangerous company.  This man can not "not know" what he is doing.  He is a willing false teacher.  No true Christian would ever make a book series and movie series about the Bible and then call it "fiction."  Especially when they skew the doctrine and willingly present falsehoods about the book of Revelation and the final prophesies of God.  Else, why would he call it "fiction" if he though he was presenting the truth of God!?!  He knows what he is doing.  And furthermore, what he has done is to violate the below Scriptural threat from God:

Revelation 22:18-21
18 For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book, If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book:
19 And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book.
20 He which testifieth these things saith, Surely I come quickly. Amen. Even so, come, Lord Jesus.
21 The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all. Amen.  KJV

    He has grown fat rich on this, and he has the adoration of many Christians because of his Rapture lies.  Don't join Tim LaHaye, [Xxxxx]; for, he shall learn the great solemnity of the below Scriptures:

Matthew 16:26-27
26 For what is a man profited, if he shall gain the whole world , and lose his own soul? or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul?
27 For the Son of man shall come in the glory of his Father with his angels; and then he shall reward every man according to his works.  KJV
 

Matthew 7:21-23
21 Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven.
22 Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works?
23 And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.  KJV

    Didn't mean to bite your head off, but this is too important to mince words.  And please never compare me to that evil man.  Am I "judging him?"  No, he has judged himself: "Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them." (Mat 7:20).  I'm just reporting it, like all Christian watchmen are to do.

    Peace to you in Christ Jesus.

PS:  You said, "If one contrasts your study and his [Tim LaHaye's] I'm not sure on which side of the rapture debate they will end up on".  We have a study on our Website that blows the Rapture lie right out of the water:   The Rapture Theory; What Does God's Word Say About It?

Tribulation preparation?

 

A reader writes:

Hello!  I am new to your site and have been reading a lot of your work on the end times.  I am a mother of 5 young children and very terrified about going through tribulation with my children.  My husband and I are not financially capable of preparing ourselves for those times.

One of my question relates to the timing of it all.  You seem positive that it will take place in our life time.  How are you so sure?  Also what are your thoughts on Javier Solana being the antichrist?  Do you think the peace covenant that he is heading up to be put into effect Jan. 1st 2007 is THE ONE?  In other words do you think the last 7 years will begin this January?

And if it does how long do you think it will be before Christians need to flee into hiding?  I know the Bible says that we as believers will know when to go, I am just scared I wont recognize when my family should flee our city. My brother owns a home in the country and I figure we would go there.

You say they will start with the major cities, do you believe that includes the capitols of all states?  And do you think someone that lives an hour outside of the city will be able to stay in their home?  Or will they be persecuted as well?  I am sorry for so many questions, I hope they don't seem trivial.
Thank you,
[Xxxxx Xxxxxxxx]
 

Answer:

Hello [Xxxxxx]:  may I just take your questions line by line?  And I am sorry to be so long in getting to your answer—I have been so busy lately.  I suppose that if I were like those ecumenical false teachers pumping "feel-good" messages into people instead of the hard truth as contained in the Bible that I would be able to support a staff to help with the work.  :o)  Satan takes good care of his own; but then, I hasten to add, so too does God take good care of His own.

John 15:14-27 [Jesus speaking]
14 Ye are my friends, if ye do whatsoever I command you.
15 Henceforth I call you not servants; for the servant knoweth not what his lord doeth: but I have called you friends; for all things that I have heard of my Father I have made known unto you.
16 Ye have not chosen me, but I have chosen you, and ordained you, that ye should go and bring forth fruit, and that your fruit should remain: that whatsoever ye shall ask of the Father in my name, he may give it you.
17 These things I command you, that ye love one another.
18 If the world hate you, ye know that it hated me before it hated you.
19 If ye were of the world , the world would love his own: but because ye are not of the world , but I have chosen you out of the world , therefore the world hateth you.
20 Remember the word that I said unto you, The servant is not greater than his lord. If they have persecuted me, they will also persecute you; if they have kept my saying, they will keep yours also.
21 But all these things will they do unto you for my name's sake, because they know not him that sent me.
22 If I had not come and spoken unto them, they had not had sin: but now they have no cloke for their sin.
23 He that hateth me hateth my Father also.
24 If I had not done among them the works which none other man did, they had not had sin: but now have they both seen and hated both me and my Father.
25 But this cometh to pass, that the word might be fulfilled that is written in their law, They hated me without a cause.
26 But when the Comforter is come, whom I will send unto you from the Father, even the Spirit of truth, which proceedeth from the Father, he shall testify of me:
27 And ye also shall bear witness, because ye have been with me from the beginning.  KJV

    Anyway, you said/asked:

"Hello!  I am new to your site and have been reading a lot of your work on
the end times.  I am a mother of 5 young children and very terrified about
going through tribulation with my children.  My husband and I are not
financially capable of preparing ourselves for those times.
"

    I will refer to your above last comment; i.e., "My husband and I are not financially capable of preparing ourselves for those times", at the end of this Q&A, but first:  You do well to fear that time, but at the same time know that you can trust Christ to help you through that time.  "Fear" keeps us on our guard, instead of being lulled to sleep with vain words of "peace and safety" (in the Tribulation):

1 Thessalonians 5:1-6
5:1 But of the times and the seasons, brethren, ye have no need that I write unto you.
2 For yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so cometh as a thief in the night.
3 For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape.
4 But ye, brethren, are not in darkness, that that day should overtake you as a thief.
5 Ye are all the children of light, and the children of the day: we are not of the night, nor of darkness.
6 Therefore let us not sleep, as do others; but let us watch and be sober
[sober-minded; i.e., clear headed and sound in doctrine and action].  KJV

  That the time is to be "feared" (or respected by preparation, perhaps better stated) is clear in the below admonition from Jesus Christ Himself:

Matthew 24:20-22
20 But pray ye that your flight be not in the winter, neither on the sabbath day:
21 For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be.
22 And except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved: but for the elect's sake those days shall be shortened.  KJV

    We see two things in the above; one, that some of us are to flee.  And secondly, that God Himself has shortened the days, thereby indicating that He will help us and shall be very watchful as to our condition during that time.  Also, by the very fact that God shall shorten the Tribulation we can rest in the assurance that He shall take many of us through it unto safety.  For, why shorten the time if not to save some certain amount?  You only shorten a thing to save some, though some others were lost at the first.  So too shall it be with Christian deaths—some shall die for Christ, these are the martyrs who live and reign with Jesus Christ for the thousand years of Revelation chapter twenty; and some shall live through the Tribulation by various means, but always with God's unction and help.  More on this later.

Revelation 20:4-6
4 And I saw thrones, and they sat upon them, and judgment was given unto them: and I saw the souls of them that were beheaded for the witness of Jesus, and for the word of God, and which had not worshipped the beast, neither his image, neither had received his mark upon their foreheads, or in their hands; and they lived and reigned with Christ a thousand years.
5 But the rest of the dead lived not again until the thousand years were finished. This is the first resurrection.
6 Blessed and holy is he that hath part in the first resurrection: on such the second death hath no power, but they shall be priests of God and of Christ, and shall reign with him a thousand years.  KJV

    My above earlier point that some Christians (number and percentage unknown) shall live through this Tribulation in good standing is double-documented by the below Scripture, where we see that at the Second Advent, which is after, and ends, the Tribulation—there shall be living Christians on this Earth who made it through the Great Tribulation unscathed both physically and spiritually:

1 Thessalonians 4:13-18
13 But I would not have you to be ignorant, brethren, concerning them which are asleep [i.e., those who die], that ye sorrow not, even as others which have no hope.
14 For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again [Christ resurrected after dying], even so them also which sleep [die] in Jesus [good standing] will God bring with him [also resurrect, as was Jesus resurrected].
15 For this we say unto you by the word of the Lord, that we which are alive and remain unto [until] the coming of the Lord [the Second Advent] shall not prevent [precede] them which are asleep [those who died before the Second Advent].
16 For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God [see below nine Scriptures for the timing of this event—it is NOT any secret Rapture!  It is the Second and final Advent]: and the dead in Christ shall rise first [have risen first, for we see them returning with Christ in the below verse]:
17 Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them [those who had risen first] in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord.
18 Wherefore comfort one another with these words.  KJV

Isaiah 25:8-9
8 He will swallow up death in victory [see Scripture below (1 Cor 15:51-58) for the timing of this event--it is the exact same time spoken of in the above parallel Scripture (1 Thes 4:13-18)]; and the Lord GOD will wipe away tears from off all faces; and the rebuke of his people shall he take away from off all the earth: for the LORD hath spoken it.
9 And it shall be said in that day, Lo, this is our God; we have waited for him, and he will save us: this is the LORD; we have waited for [not sought to Rapture out with some false christ: "Blessed is that servant, whom his lord when he cometh shall find so doing." (Mat 24:46)], we will be glad and rejoice in his salvation.  KJV

1 Corinthians 15:51-58
51 Behold, I shew you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed,
52 In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed.
53 For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality.
54 So when this corruptible shall have put on incorruption, and this mortal shall have put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written, Death is swallowed up in victory.
55 O death, where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory?  KJV

Matthew 16:27
27 For the Son of man shall come in the glory of his Father with his angels; and then he shall reward every man according to his works.  KJV
 

Matthew 24:30-31
30 And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven: and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory.
31 And he shall [at that time, the "then" of the preceding verse] send his angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they shall gather together his elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other.  KJV
 

Matthew 25:31
31 When the Son of man shall come in his glory, and all the holy angels with him, then shall he sit upon the throne of his glory:  KJV
 

Matthew 26:64
64 Jesus saith unto him, Thou hast said: nevertheless I say unto you, Hereafter shall ye see [from here on you won't see me again until you see] the Son of man sitting on the right hand of power, and coming in the clouds of heaven [i.e., at, and not until, the Second Advent].  KJV
 

Acts 1:11
11 Which also said, Ye men of Galilee, why stand ye gazing up into heaven? this same Jesus, which is taken up from you into heaven, shall so come in like manner as ye have seen him go into heaven [He did not ascend secretly and He won't return secretly—all eyes present saw Him ascend, as shall all eyes see Him descend at the Second Advent].  KJV
 

2 Thessalonians 1:7
7 And to you who are troubled rest with us, when the Lord Jesus shall be revealed [be made known] from heaven with his mighty angels,  KJV
 

2 Peter 3:10
10 But the day of the Lord [Second advent] will come as a thief in the night; in [on that day, at that Second Advent] the which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up.  KJV
 

Revelation 1:7
7 Behold, he [Jesus] cometh with clouds [spoken of in our 1st Thes 4:17 verse: "Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air"]; and every eye shall see him, and they also which pierced him [even the antichrists who killed Him shall shall see Him then]: and all kindreds of the earth shall wail because of him [therefore they all SEE Him when He next returns]. Even so, Amen.  KJV

    My secondary point in the above Scriptures is that there is NO RAPTURE!  My primary point was that: There shall be living Christians on this Earth who made it through the Great Tribulation unscathed both physically and spiritually.  You may well be one of those Christian Tribulation-survivors, dear. 

    You said/asked:

"One of my question relates to the timing of it all.  You seem positive that it will
take place in our life time.  How are you so sure?
"

    In our life time?  How about in our near future?  How do I know?  I know by studying the prophecies and comparing them to what is happening on the ground today.  There is nothing lacking for the Tribulation to start within a couple of years, perhaps sooner, maybe later.  For, God can change the speed of the events on this Earth and thus move the time of the beginning of the Tribulation forwards or backward. 

    Many people are not aware that when Israel invaded Lebanon last month, for a moment, we were within literal months of the Tribulation.  I felt it, I wonder how many others did?  But then God slowed it back down; Israel retreated, the Arab world did not solidify against Israel and the Christian West in world war three, and the matter now sits on the fire, percolating, just waiting for the heat to be turned-up to boiling.  And the lid is on tight—she will blow up.  And at any time God can speed it all up—like for instance if Israel (or America) attacks Iran's nuclear facilities (for which Israel must herself use nuclear bunker-buster bombs to penetrate the facilities—thus effectively launching what shall be considered to be a nuclear attack upon Iran.  Iran being in possession of protection agreements from Russia, China, and India (i.e., "the kings of the East" of Revelation.  Everything happening over there in the Middle East, every nation currently on the edge of major military moves, is mentioned in prophecy.  And a good student of prophecy can tell you what is going to happen to and with them—he just can't tell you WHEN.  Then, comparing those prophecies with the way that the nations are being set in array for the battle, one can keep a kind of finger on the world's pulse.  But like I said, these things start-up, then die down, then flash up again.  One day they won't settle down—they will escalate and explode into the final times.  Only God knows when this will happen.  It could be next month or next decade or next millennium.  It is God's hands, but I wouldn't invest in any long-term notes, if you know what I mean.  :o) 

    And Israel isn't the only hot-topic on the map, nor the only situation that satan has simmering.  The world is very volatile right now—so many things can flash up and trigger the beginning of the Tribulation, which I identify as the widespread martial laws and the removal of freedom of person, this I believe will proceed after large-scale military conflicts in conjunction with terrorist attacks and certain natural cataclysms, not leaving out the planned breakdown of the global economy.  It is based upon that action (when the world's governments for whatever reasons feel the need to remove freedom from their populous') that once that freedom is removed the International Judaics shall sweep in with their long-planned global control, secretly assassinating any governmental official not on-board and replace them with puppets that they have waiting in the wings in all nations.  And once martial law is nationwide in the countries, those people in those nations shall be at the will and whim of whoever is controlling those governments and the guns that patrol the streets distributing food, providing electric and fuel oil, etc.  Think of Hurricane Katrina's aftermath gone national, or rather, gone international.  The identity of this controlling beast is the International Judaics, or, as they call themselves, the Learned Elders of Zion, or more recently, the Council of the Jewish Agency.  Same crew, different names. 

You said/asked:

"Also what are your thoughts on Javier Solana being the antichrist?"

    It's the same as anyone else being considered the antichrist—it's all subterfuge designed to take our minds off of who shall be the real antichrist; and that would be satan, and nobody else. 

    You said/asked:

"Do you think the peace covenant that he is heading up to be put into effect Jan. 1st 2007 is THE ONE?  In other words do you think the last 7 years will begin this January?"

    You are repeating what you heard, I know that.  But there isn't going to be a peace treaty with the so-called nation of Israel.  That is just the weak attempts of man in trying to figure out prophecy (mostly from Rapture doctors who couldn't figure out a prophecy if it landed upon their own heads—their whole doctrine is askew; how pray tell, could they figure out a prophecy when they can't even figure out what to teach in church?)  And the state called "Israel" today (wherein are not God's people), in the Middle East, isn't of God.  It should not be there.  It does not answer to any of the prophecies save for the seat of the beast.  1948 and 1969 were not of or for God (1948 saw the illegal state of Israel being founded by the Khazars, and 1969 being the year that the antichrists took East Jerusalem containing the Temple Mount in the Six Day War).  It (Jerusalem "Israel") rather being the future seat of antichrist after they will have suppressed the Christian church and handed the world over to their god satan (antichrist).

    Time doesn't permit me to expand on this at this moment.  So take it or leave it as you wish.  But the peace made is made with the world, not with the criminal and un-Biblical modern day nation state of Israel.  And neither does it (Jerusalem, Israel) belong to the Muslims.  Though we see, as prophecy declared, that the heathen ("Gentiles") are troddening it down today (Muslims and Jews).  It (Jerusalem) shall, after being purged, become the residence of God's people, the "new Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband." (Rev 21:2b).  Prior to that there is no good thing in the location today called "Israel" on the map—it is satan's abode, God left it long ago when they murdered Him there.  And now, today, His betrayers and murderers are sitting in that city calling themselves His "chosen people," and overthrown Christians being led by Christ-betraying play-preachers are agreeing with them, financially supporting them, and fighting wars for them.  A day of reckoning is coming—but not before the day of Jacob's trouble (our [true] Christian's trouble). 

Luke 13:34-35
34 O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, which killest the prophets, and stonest them that are sent unto thee; how often would I have gathered thy children together, as a hen doth gather her brood under her wings, and ye would not!
35 Behold, your house is left unto you desolate: and verily I say unto you, Ye shall not see me, until the time come when ye shall say, Blessed is he that cometh in the name of the Lord.  KJV

    Search the book of Revelation in vain, neither "Israel" nor Jerusalem are the location of anything Godly, but rather of the beast and his henchmen which are persecuting the endtime church (and world)—there is no good thing in Jerusalem until Christ returns and kills everything wicked.  Heck, it is even in Jerusalem that antichrist kills God's Two Witnesses and where satan (antichrist) sets up his temple claiming to be God.  Many Christians today, being misled by uninspired neo-Christian pretend preachers do not have an accurate picture of the Second Advent, they forget that while Christ came the first time to save, He comes the second time to judge.  And that while God is indeed a God of love—He is also a God of wrath, and His arms are not waxen short that He should not execute His promised vengeance.  Jesus Christ is not happy at the Second Advent.  And why should He be?  He returns to world that is worshipping satan, persecuting His Christian faithful remnant unto death, and to a so-called "chosen people" who have not known Him—never knew Him; and to a city once beloved (Jerusalem) that has become a harlot, willingly laying prostrate beneath the beast.

The Second Advent Of Jesus Christ

Revelation 19:11-21
11 And I saw heaven opened, and behold a white horse; and he that sat upon him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness he doth judge and make war.
12 His eyes were as a flame of fire, and on his head were many crowns; and he had a name written, that no man knew, but he himself.
13 And he was clothed with a vesture dipped in blood: and his name is called The Word of God.
14 And the armies which were in heaven followed him upon white horses, clothed in fine linen, white and clean.
15 And out of his mouth goeth a sharp sword, that with it he should smite the nations: and he shall rule them with a rod of iron: and he treadeth the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God.
16 And he hath on his vesture and on his thigh a name written, KING OF KINGS, AND LORD OF LORDS.
17 And I saw an angel standing in the sun; and he cried with a loud voice, saying to all the fowls that fly in the midst of heaven, Come and gather yourselves together unto the supper of the great God;
18 That ye may eat the flesh of kings, and the flesh of captains, and the flesh of mighty men, and the flesh of horses, and of them that sit on them, and the flesh of all men, both free and bond, both small and great.
19 And I saw the beast, and the kings of the earth, and their armies, gathered together to make war against him that sat on the horse, and against his army.
20 And the beast was taken, and with him the false prophet that wrought miracles before him, with which he deceived them that had received the mark of the beast, and them that worshipped his image. These both were cast alive into a lake of fire burning with brimstone.
21 And the remnant were slain with the sword of him that sat upon the horse, which sword proceeded out of his mouth: and all the fowls were filled with their flesh.  KJV

    Moving on.  You said/asked:

"And if it does how long do you think it will be before Christians need to
flee into hiding?  I know the Bible says that we as believers will know when
to go, I am just scared I wont recognize when my family should flee our
city. My brother owns a home in the country and I figure we would go there. 
You say they will start with the major cities, do you believe that includes
the capitols of all states?  And do you think someone that lives an hour
outside of the city will be able to stay in their home?  Or will they be
persecuted as well?  I am sorry for so many questions, I hope they don't seem
trivial.
"

    Oh, I assure you that it isn't trivial!  Regarding the hiding, this is different for all Christians.  What I mean is that some will hide, some will not, some God shall supernaturally protect (Rev 12:6 & 14-16), some shall die (Rev 6:11, etc.).  Is it not even written:

Revelation 13:9-10
9 If any man have an ear, let him hear.
10 He that leadeth into captivity shall go into captivity: he that killeth with the sword must be killed with the sword. Here is the patience and the faith of the saints.  KJV

    My point is that we each individually need to pray to God and ask what is His will for us.  It is not the same for all of us, though we all be Christians.  Just today we each have different duties and purposes, so too in the Tribulation shall we each have different responsibilities and duties, though we be equal Christian brethren. 

    I feel bad that my writings may have scared you; but what can I do other than teach the truth as I believe it to be, supplying my Biblical documentation as to why I believe this or that?  And it is you that must further investigate with prayer to come to the understanding that God has desire that you individually come to. 

    Let me say something about the Christian martyrs in the Tribulation; and with a thousand words I could probably document it—but I will offer it not as fact but as my opinion only:  There shall not be one Christian martyred in the Tribulation that would want to be anywhere else doing anything else.  In other words, they shall willingly give their lives in the service of the King.  The KING of kings and LORD of lords, that is. 

    So to all of you who are worried about this; don't worry, you won't be called. 

    Regarding preparations:  If you are so led to prepare then you had better start now.  Once this thing begins you will not be able to make your preparations.  How would you prepare?  Just go to the numerous Survivalist Websites and all that you need to know you shall find there.  Think of it as a four year long camping trip.  But please be careful about associating yourself with non-Christians—they shall betray your plans and your person when they begin to worship antichrist:

Revelation 13:6-8
6 And he opened his mouth in blasphemy against God, to blaspheme his name, and his tabernacle, and them that dwell in heaven.
7 And it was given unto him to make war with the saints, and to overcome them: and power was given him over all kindreds, and tongues, and nations.
8 And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him, whose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world.  KJV

    If they aren't Christians by then, then they are those "whose names are not written in the book of life", and they "shall worship him [the beast]". and they shall help the antichrists (International Judaics) "make war with the saints, and to overcome them".  Word to the wise is sufficient. 

    Don't worry.  Pray.  Listen to what God is showing your heart.  Then don't worry, act; whichever way God leads you. 

    You asked:

"You say they will start with the major cities, do you believe that includes the capitols of all states?"

    Your great enemy during the Tribulation (and immediately before it) is people.  Stay away from them.  In the city you have that many more opportunities to encounter people who could rob you, rape you, murder you, turn you into the Int. Judaics for conversion to antichristianity and antichrist, their god.  Stay away from crowded centers.  Stay away from people.

    In closing, I left one question/statement unanswered until now, that being your comment:

"My husband and I are not financially capable of preparing ourselves for those times"

    But it takes so little to survive.  A single hundred-pound bag of rice could feed your family for weeks or more, and costs little.  Add a hundred pound bag of beans and you have a primitive diet (carbs & protein) that you can survive on.  Anything more is all the better.  Your brother's place in the country sounds good.  But he will think that you are nuts when you tell him why you may need to someday "drop-in" and live there for a while.  But then, they no doubt though Noah to be nuts when he was building an Ark in his driveway—until that is, God opened the heavens down upon them.  :o) 

    God loves us, and He will do for us that which we cannot do for ourselves.  Trust Him, and pray. 

Peace to you in Christ Jesus. 

PS:  One more thing, especially to you city dwellers:  GET THEE A GUN! Not for antichrist, but for the bandits and mobs and the hoards of antichrist followers that shall come on their heels.

Watchmen watching

 

A (female) reader writes:

Hi Nick, 

First, (the obligatory yet very heartfelt) thank you for your work on this website.  At present, it is my only source of "companion" study as I am tired of people who want to argue rather than study. 

Second, (I watch WAY too much TV) it is old news that we have numbed ourselves to killing and all other violence, but the escalation in the graphic nature of it all is beginning to horrify me - partly because I, myself, can sit and watch it without giving it a second thought, unless I force myself to at least be appalled by it, if not cut it off.  And, mostly I don't cut it off.  And bottom line is bottom line - we are being lulled into unflinchingly watching someone flayed alive - or sodomized - or tortured in ways only we creative humans could manage.  (preparation for end time brother against brother??) 

As a group of people - we don't flinch anymore! 

{An aside.  I saved the last two minutes of a particular CSI-Las Vegas, where the main character (Grissom) is saying in words that won't get the producers of the show in trouble, that the city of Las Vegas brought on the particular type of violence that had just occurred with the "What happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas" ad campaign - it says come to vegas and do what you want with no repercussions - no guilt.} 

I can't imagine how hard it is to stay focused on the Lord in your line of work?  I won't ask if it is possible, as you are obviously doing it, but do you flinch? 

{And another aside.  We are being lulled into an acceptance of death with a preponderance of dead people shows - Medium, Ghost Whisperer, Hex, Charmed, Dead Like Me, John Edward Cross Country, Montel, various vampire concepts, etc. - not just our own deaths, but the deaths of others.  The message: death is not final.  True, but all these deaths are depicted without mention of Jesus and salvation.  Again, it is as if we are being prepped.} 

That was the easy part, a warm up question.  I'm a bit uncomfortable with this next area of my e-mail.

After spending time on the website, my best guess is that you walk your talk.  How do your fellow officers take it?  Actually, I don't necessarily mean your partner or the officers around you, so "fellow officers" is a misnomer.  I mean the Police Department.  Given the ubiquitous nature of the International Judaics and their (assumed on my part) propensity for government offices, doesn't your job make you an even easier target for any number of small jabs and pokes, to say nothing of the potentially forthcoming huge shove? 

You are, to put it mildly, outspoken.  God bless you for that.  God keep you safe for that.  I know that as a Christian man, and from your writings, you have chosen to do the work for the Lord, come what may.  You live and die for Jesus.  And that is just the way it is.  So, these questions aren't to figure you out or to pry into your life.  I just want to know if it is happening as a "marker," if you will.  Are you being persecuted for your work?  I'm not asking how or when or by whom (well, we know by whom!), just if you are. 

The Watchmen site is the only one I know of to add the subject of the International Judaics to the study of God's word.  And you speak out against the revered Religionatics of our time - albeit not as vehemently as Forgotten Word Ministries - so the study site (i.e., you) is (are) a triple threat. 

Yes?  No? 

If you have the time and are so inclined...this e-mail is prompted by your own words about being a police officer, the e-mail from the woman worried about surviving the coming travails, and my own thoughts about being as off-the-grid and as out of the line of fire as possible (no credit cards, moving towards more and more cash transactions, preparation for potentially "uncomfortable" times - focusing on ONLY what is important - OR...stepping forward with God's word). 

Thanks, [Xxxxxxx]


Answer:

Hello [Xxxxx].  Thank you for the kind words of encouragement and for the concern for my safety that shows through in your writing.  First I will cover the other concerns/statements then I will deal with the personal part.

    Regarding the numbing of the conscience of this once-Christian nation:  Yes, they are purposely searing our consciences.  They (and I don't have to tell you who "they" are if you have read me for any length of time) through their controlled medium of television and movies are constantly bombarding us with images of death, vice, homosexuality, godlessness, self-gratification at any consequence, and instilling within us with a disrespect for our government.  Why would they do this? 

    For one, they intend that we attempt to overthrow this government, whereby they will then step in with "preventative" Martial Law.  This, I believe, may well happen at the onset of the next unpopular war.  Now, I am no fan of George Bush, I know who he works for and I know who he worships (the International Judaics and satan, respectively); however, he is still the president of this free nation.  And I am appalled at the total lack of respect shown to the President of the United States of America by the media and the Liberals—by everyday Americans even. 

    But what they do not understand is that when they destroy George Bush they will also destroy the country that he runs.  In other words, when the ship sinks, we all drown, not just the Captain of the ship.  So in effect, the propaganda masters have us collectively working out our own shipwreck.  They then shall step in with the lifeboats.  But the lifeboats have hand and leg irons in them, and to be saved by this crew means enslavement. 

    This is the exact same model that the Judaics used to overthrow once-Christian pre-1917 Russia in the (Jewish) Bolshevik Revolution, by which they turned a Christian nation, strong and proud, into a Judaic-controlled godless Atheist hellhole, murdering some 60+ millions of White Russians (as history calls them), mostly Christians.  The Jews did that and they are the ones doing it to us as we speak.  They destroy us, by us; because there isn't enough of them to do the job themselves.  For the last forty years or so the Judaics have used the Liberals, which welcomed with open arms the divisive integration, sexual liberation, feminist, and abortion movements, and especially the anti-war protests of the sixties and now soon in the 2000's.  However, there is currently a shift underway in the International Judaic's proxies; they have recently (since G.W. Bush), shifted their tool and are now using the Conservatives.  Not real Conservatives mind you, I speak of the Judeocons (NeoCons) (Neo-Conservatives, or New Conservatives), which are almost exclusively Jewish.  Coming soon is another shift back to the Democrats [PS: this was written about four weeks ago, and just being posted today (Nov 15)--I didn't know at the time how accurate a statement that was (regarding the recent Democratic sweep of the Mid-Term Elections 2006)--WBSG]like a chameleon the International Judaics shift proxies, but always with the same goal in mind, to destabilize America and the Christian Western Nations.  Enough on that.

     The greatest prize for the International Judaics was the de-Christianization of America (and all the once-Christian Western nations).  So we see here three fronts (out of many): Social and moral degradation, rebellion against the powers that be, and spiritual degradation.  In short, the International Judaics are causing us to make God want to remove His blessings from off this country.  And they are succeeding.  They are setting us up for an overthrow of the Constitutionally protected form of government that we until recently enjoyed.  And they are turning us into them.  What I mean by that last statement is that the moral compass of most people in this country, and sadly many Christians, is that we are thinking like and effectively becoming more..., well..., Jewish.  The spirit of the Jewish Talmud courses through our modern society's veins, like it or not, notice it or not.  We are being set up to become "Righteous Gentiles" (Noahides), which are basically non-Jewish "Jews" who have the rights of barn animals).  The thirteenth chapter of Revelation speaks of an entire world so affected, which explains the world's collective actions at that time.

    I know that it is not possible that what I have just said will not be misunderstood by some and taken as so-called AntiSemitism.  But to tell you the truth I don't even care anymore what they say.  I have said the truth.  I can document every word.  In fact, the International Judaics document it for me everyday and in their own writings.  But we are all blind sheep and believe not what we see—but what we are told that we see—though we really don't see it at all.  So what good cause is there for me to flip-flop and roll over and beg people not to think that I am an AntiSemite.  I am not an AntiSemite, take that or leave that at your discernment.  I know that in a propaganda war (which the International Judaics relentlessly and tirelessly drag us through over and over again till we don't know what the heck to believe or stand-up for anymore) that the truth means absolutely nothing; hence the institution of Political Correctness which has replaced conscience in America and indeed all the West.  "Political Correctness" is really just a sanitized way of saying that the truth is a lie and that lies are the truth.  The Bible foretold of this our time:

Isaiah 5:20-30
20 Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!
21 Woe unto them that are wise in their own eyes, and prudent in their own sight!
22 Woe unto them that are mighty to drink wine, and men of strength to mingle strong drink:
23 Which justify the wicked for reward, and take away the righteousness of the righteous from him!
24 Therefore as the fire devoureth the stubble, and the flame consumeth the chaff, so their root shall be as rottenness, and their blossom shall go up as dust: because they have cast away the law of the LORD of hosts, and despised the word of the Holy One of Israel.
25 Therefore is the anger of the LORD kindled against his people, and he hath stretched forth his hand against them, and hath smitten them: and the hills did tremble, and their carcases were torn in the midst of the streets. For all this his anger is not turned away, but his hand is stretched out still.
26 And he will lift up an ensign to the nations from far, and will hiss unto them from the end of the earth: and, behold, they shall come with speed swiftly:
27 None shall be weary nor stumble among them; none shall slumber nor sleep; neither shall the girdle of their loins be loosed, nor the latchet of their shoes be broken:
28 Whose arrows are sharp, and all their bows bent, their horses' hoofs shall be counted like flint, and their wheels like a whirlwind:
29 Their roaring shall be like a lion, they shall roar like young lions: yea, they shall roar, and lay hold of the prey, and shall carry it away safe, and none shall deliver it.
30 And in that day they shall roar against them like the roaring of the sea: and if one look unto the land, behold darkness and sorrow, and the light is darkened in the heavens thereof.  KJV

   God's mad, and America is on His short list.  Think God loves America?  Below is a current counter, counting in real-time the murder of innocents in just the Christian Western Nations.  In the Communist countries (like China for instance) and in near-third world nations the numbers are staggering (and suppressed by the you-know-who controlled (International Media).  King Herod would have blushed at our murder of the innocents over his when he tried to assassinate the baby Jesus by killing all the infants in the region.

Matt 2:16-18
16 Then Herod, when he saw that he was mocked of the wise men, was exceeding wroth, and sent forth, and slew all the children that were in Bethlehem, and in all the coasts thereof, from two years old and under, according to the time which he had diligently inquired of the wise men.
17 Then was fulfilled that which was spoken by Jeremy the prophet
[Jeremiah 31:15], saying,
18 In Rama was there a voice heard, lamentation, and weeping, and great mourning, Rachel weeping for her children, and would not be comforted, because they are not.  KJV

Jer 31:15
15 Thus saith the Lord; A voice was heard in Ramah, lamentation, and bitter weeping ; Rahel weeping for her children refused to be comforted for her children, because they were not.  KJV

     Today, one in four pregnancies in this once-Christian nation of America is terminated in abortion. 

“...48 percent of pregnancies among American women are unintended, and ½ of these are terminated in abortion. . . .An estimated 43 percent of women will have at least 1 abortion by the time they are 45 years old. . . . Each year, an estimated 46 million abortions occur world-wide...” The Allan Guttmacher Institute.

     Below is a conservative estimate of the number of abortions that have been carried out this millennium (since 01 January 2001) in the western world only (world-wide figures much higher).  That's one abortion every 3.2 seconds)

Jewish Doctor “started it all” for the Pro-Choice Movement and “helped make abortion legal”

“… [M.D. Dr. Bernard] Nathanson, perhaps the closest thing to being ‘the man who started it all’ for the ‘Pro-Choice Movement’ ― the Edward Teller of Abortion….”  “Dr. Bernard Nathanson, co-founder in 1969 of the National Abortion Rights Action League, helped make abortion legal.  As director of New York City’s Center for Reproductive and Sexual Health, the world’s largest abortion clinic, and the nation’s most prominent abortionist, he presided over 60,000 abortions.”[1]

…In this memoir, Dr. Nathanson describes his Jewish upbringing, his religious struggles throughout his education and medical training, and the threat he felt when asked to be a character witness at a friend’s hearing before Joseph McCarthy’s Senatorial [Anti-Communist] Committee.[2]

Book Review by Delbert H. Meyer, MD, of Bernard N. Nathanson, MD’s book, The Hand of God --- A Journal from Death to Life by the Abortion Doctor Who Changed His Mind.  Source document: http://www.haciendapub.com/nathanson.html

    I hope that I don't have tell you who is behind the Abortion Movement, or who profits by it, or who got it  introduced as law (I shall in my book—with documentation, I might add).  Now I want you to figure out in your own heart what God thinks of this nation (and England, France, etc—all the once-Christian Western nations currently being morally and otherwise overthrown by the International Judaics).

    Moving on.

    Regarding WBSG's continued advice to Christians "being as off-the-grid and as out of the line of fire as possible", in relation to myself personally―I do not "practice what I preach."  What I mean is that I am out in the open, easy to find, and bold in speech.  Yet, I speak of staying "off the grid" for you.  Contradiction?  At face value, yes; however, someone has to be out, some people have to do something—we can't ALL just hide.  I choose to fight (legally—I do not advocate the breaking of just laws, and refuse adamantly to be associated with or aligned with any group that advocates or practices lawlessness).  God's written Word sets our guidelines on what is lawless—the Great Creator is both Teacher and Judge.

    As far as being a Police Officer, it actually helps me more than being an impediment.  For one, we (Law Enforcement Officers) are all trained to look at others without prejudice; we are not allowed to persecute anyone—not even rapists and murderers.  Therefore, no Police officer shall ever persecute me for my faith (until the Tribulation, that is).  Also, a Police Officer is harder to "disappear" or "frame" (favorite Int. Judaic tactics) when he has worked with so many other Police officers, lawyers, Judges, and decent members of society, for twenty years.  But an "unknown" is easy to destroy or murder.  And while it may not be fair, when a Cop is killed the whole legal system focuses an incredible amount of light on the matter.  The International Judaics are vampires and do not like the light.  But really, I am not that effective, anyway.  What, three hundred visits a day to my little Website—how much trouble could I cause.  But I am not alone, there are others like me out there.  And the fact of the matter (which is not being lost on the International Judaics) is that a whole lot of people are waking up to what is going on and to whom it is that is destroying us. 

    But, that is not exactly good news, per se, because it means that "we" will force the hand of the conspirators to put us down sooner rather than later, fearing that they will lose hold of the situation.  So something is coming soon because too many people are waking up.  "They" don't like their slaves awake.  In just one little area of theater, almost the majority of people are coming to the sobering realization that 911 isn't exactly what we have been told that it was (for an eye-opening look at the events of 911, see the video: Click here to watch Loose Change - 2nd Edition).  Etcetera, etcetera, etcetera.  The world is waking up and smelling the coffee.  And not just here in America, mind you; but in England, Russia, Germany, France, Canada, Poland, Spain, White South Africa, Australia, Anglo-Saxon nations near and wide which have been the unrelenting targets of International Jewry for centuries, from the Crucifixion even.  Sure, "they" try to call these people "AntiSemites," but even that ruse doesn't have the same impact it once had due to overuse and misapplication.

    Thank you for your concern, but don't ever worry about me—my God is bigger than their god.  :o)

    I feel that all Christians that see are to be watchmen.  Not some special person, mind you; but just an alarm sounder.  Would to God that more Christians stood up.  And for all of you who are so called to watch, watchmen, watch—I leave you with the below words of the Good and Only God:

Ezekiel 33:1-6
33:1 Again the word of the LORD came unto me, saying,
2 Son of man, speak to the children of thy people, and say unto them, When I bring the sword upon a land, if the people of the land take a man of their coasts, and set him for their watchman:
3 If when he seeth the sword come upon the land, he blow the trumpet, and warn the people;
4 Then whosoever heareth the sound of the trumpet, and taketh not warning; if the sword come, and take him away, his blood shall be upon his own head.
5 He heard the sound of the trumpet, and took not warning; his blood shall be upon him. But he that taketh warning shall deliver his soul.
6 But if the watchman see the sword come, and blow not the trumpet, and the people be not warned; if the sword come, and take any person from among them, he is taken away in his iniquity; but his blood will I require at the watchman's hand.  KJV

    What else, then, can a good Christian do we they see what is coming, come?  I'll tell you what you don't want to do:

Hebrews 10:31
31 It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God.  KJV

    Peace to you in Christ Jesus, and WATCH, watchmen, watch!  It is coming.  It cannot be stopped because it is written to come to pass, and that "...in which it was impossible for God to lie...." (Heb 6:18b) and "...which God, that cannot lie...." (Titus 1:2b) .  This world shall go into the Tribulation (Rev 13), satan shall reign for a season as god of this world (2nd Thes 2:4), Christians shall be persecuted (Rev 6:11, etc.), then comes the end (the Second Advent—Rev 19:11-21).  We are many going to die, you might as well die on the winning side.  And for the faint of heart, below is a Christianity that is not being taught in our churches anymore (because the "guess who's" have taken over most of the large denominations from within and without).  Take comfort in the below words of the Master Jesus Christ.  He tried to tell us, but our clergy negate His warnings at most every sermon.  Therefore they are not fit to lead us anymore.  They're fired: "For it is written in the book of Psalms, Let his habitation be desolate, and let no man dwell therein: and his bishoprick let another take." (Acts 1:20).

Matthew 10:21-42 [Jesus Christ speaking about the endtime (search in vain for any Raptures)]
21 And the brother shall deliver up the brother to death, and the father the child: and the children shall rise up against their parents, and cause them to be put to death.
22 And ye shall be hated of all men for my name's sake: but he that endureth to the end shall be saved.
23 But when they persecute you in this city, flee ye into another: for verily I say unto you, Ye shall not have gone over the cities of Israel, till the Son of man be come.
24 The disciple is not above his master, nor the servant above his lord.
25 It is enough for the disciple that he be as his master, and the servant as his lord. If they have called the master of the house Beelzebub, how much more shall they call them of his household?
26 Fear them not therefore: for there is nothing covered, that shall not be revealed; and hid, that shall not be known.
27 What I tell you in darkness, that speak ye in light: and what ye hear in the ear, that preach ye upon the housetops.
28 And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell.
29 Are not two sparrows sold for a farthing? and one of them shall not fall on the ground without your Father.
30 But the very hairs of your head are all numbered.
31 Fear ye not therefore, ye are of more value than many sparrows.
32 Whosoever therefore shall confess me before men, him will I confess also before my Father which is in heaven.
33 But whosoever shall deny me before men, him will I also deny before my Father which is in heaven.
34 Think not that I am come to send peace on earth: I came not to send peace, but a sword.
35 For I am come to set a man at variance against his father, and the daughter against her mother, and the daughter in law against her mother in law.
36 And a man's foes shall be they of his own household.
37 He that loveth father or mother more than me is not worthy of me: and he that loveth son or daughter more than me is not worthy of me.
38 And he that taketh not his cross, and followeth after me, is not worthy of me.
39 He that findeth his life shall lose it: and he that loseth his life for my sake shall find it.
40 He that receiveth you receiveth me, and he that receiveth me receiveth him that sent me.
41 He that receiveth a prophet in the name of a prophet shall receive a prophet's reward; and he that receiveth a righteous man in the name of a righteous man shall receive a righteous man's reward.
42 And whosoever shall give to drink unto one of these little ones a cup of cold water only in the name of a disciple, verily I say unto you, he shall in no wise lose his reward.  KJV

Peace to you in Christ Jesus.

One of the antichrists takes his best shot at their age old practice of defaming Apostle Paul's legitimacy

 

An enemy writes:

In the book of Acts we find a Pharisee named Saul.
Jesus warned us to be wary of the Pharisees.  From the
beginning of "christianity" Saul was persecuting them,
Satan was a murderer from the beginning.  Saul never
sees Yeshua, but hears a voice.  How do we know this
was truly the Son of God? 
"But when SAUL had come to Jerusalem HE tried to join
the disciples; but they were ALL AFRAID OF HIM AND DID
NOT BELIEVE THAT HE WAS A DISCIPLE (of Yeshuwa')"(Acts
9:26).
The qualifications for an apostle were
these...therefore it is necessary that of the men who
have accompanied us...--BEGINNING WITH THE BAPTISM OF
JOHN until THE DAY HE WAS TAKEN UP FROM US --one of
these must become a witness with us of His
resurrection." (Acts 1:21,22).
Paul never spent a day with the Messiah, that is why
he rarely if ever quotes from Jesus.  He doesn't meet
the criteria to be called an apostle. 
'PAUL' declared: "If we or an angel from heaven preach
ANY OTHER GOSPEL to you than what we have preached to
you "LET HIM BE A CURSE" (Gal 1:9).  Many of Pauls
teachings do not parralel that of Jesus' teachings. 
"For I BECAME YOUR FATHER through the  gospel I
preach" (1 Corinthians 4:15).
Didn't Jesus say to call no man your father?  Call no
man rabbi or teacher?  For only one in heaven is your
Father?  Yet Paul says I became your father, once
again, because Saul never spent a day with the
Teacher, he taught otherwise.
'Paul'wrote the LIE to his Galation followers that he
('Paul')and NOT PETER" was entrusted with the gospel
to the Gentiles" (Galations 2:7). In that same
infamous letter 'Paul' also attacked the integrity of
the faithful apostle PETER by making un-corroborated
and FALSE CHARGES against him.
Now, concerning FOOD OFFERED TO IDOLS I (Paul) am
fully convinced NO FOOD is UNCLEAN in itself, because
THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS AN IDOL IN THE WORLD"(Romans
14:14. 1 Corinthians 8:4).
THIS EVIL TEACHING IS IN BLATANT DISREGARD FOR THE
COMMAND OF THE SPIRIT OF THE HOLY ONE AND THE TWELVE
APOSTLES:
"For it seemed good to the spirit of The Holy One, and
to us, to lay upon you no greater burden than THESE
NECESSARY THINGS; That you ABSTAIN FROM MEATS OFFERED
TO IDOLS, and from blood, and from things strangled
and from fornication..."(Acts 15:28:29).
Jesus never put down women, but Paul says they should
'shut up' in church.  Jesus delivered people from
satan, yet Paul delivers them to satan.
If anyone among you leads a vagabond life HE MUST BE
LEFT TO STARVE...HAVE NOTHING TO DO WITH THEM...LET
THEM EAT THEIR OWN BREAD" (2 Thessalonians 3:6-12
Jesus often ate and drank with the sinners, he fed
them, another example of Pauls false doctrine.
"FOR I WAS HUNGRY AND YOU GAVE ME NOTHING TO EAT";

There are 26 books in the New Testament, 13 written by
Paul.  That's half of them. 
Just as there were two trees in the garden of Eden, so
there are two trees in the New Testament.
Paul was a Pharisee, a murderer, a liar, and boastful,
and he met none of the requirements to be an apostle.
He claimed super Divine revelation... as far as we
know, it was Satan and NOT Jesus who met him on the
DAmascus Rd.  I plan on doing a detailed study of this
because it is so important to understand the truth of
this matter.  Paul twists the scriptures and makes up
his own, and damns anybody who would preach otherwise.

Thank you for your teachings, and may God bless you
and yours.
Peace

Answer:

    Why has satan hardened your heart to withstand our Lord Jesus Christ's chosen messenger, Apostle Paul?  Paul himself once had a word for one such as yourself:

2 Timothy 4:14-15
14 Alexander the coppersmith did me much evil: the Lord reward him according to his works:
15 Of whom be thou ware also; for he hath greatly withstood our words.  KJV


    It is not written here whether this "coppersmith" was a "Jew" or not, but seeing that he hated Paul it would appear apparent.  And then don't forget that the Kenites (sons of Cain) founded metalworking, so it would not be unusual to find one of them working in the craft: "And Cain went out from the presence of the Lord, and dwelt in the land of Nod, on the east of Eden.  And Cain knew his wife; and she conceived, and bare Enoch...And unto Enoch was born Irad: and Irad begat Mehujael ...begat...begat...begat...Tubal-cain, an instructer of every artificer in brass and iron...."  (Gen 4:16-22).  Not that every metal-worker was a descendant of the serpent (satan) through Cain, I hasten to add; but it may just be a little hidden info in that Scripture for those who look a little harder at every written word.  There is always a reason, though not always apparent, why the Holy Spirit inserts seemingly irrelevant info in the Scriptures.

    And you also did not state whether you were a "Jew" or a Christian, though you tried to sound—at least—Christian-friendly.  But that was most likely a subterfuge (deception).  The reason that I know the spirit behind your letter is that nobody has a problem with Apostle Paul except for, 1. Jews, and 2. ex-Christian converts to Judaism.  Yes, believe it or not this actually happens, usually marginal Christians doing it for the purpose of marrying a Jewess or in the case of a female, for the purpose of marrying a Jew; like the sexpot (whore) actress Marilyn Monroe for instance, who converted to Judaism so that she could marry the Judaic Arthur Miller [—The Jewish Sentinel (Chicago) Nov 22, 1956].

    Not content with Paul, this same burning Jewish hatred applies to the Son of God, Jesus Christ, as well.  The Romans hated neither Jesus nor Paul; neither of the two threatened the Roman Empire, neither encouraged uprisings, neither brought the people into revolt against taxes or Roman servitude; and in fact, the Roman Governor, Pontius Pilate tried unsuccessfully three times to spare Jesus Christ, but the Jews wouldn't have it.  What about Muslims?  Muslims know little if anything about Apostle Paul and they do not hate Jesus Christ; in fact, while Muslims do not acknowledge Jesus Christ as the Son of God, Savior, they do consider Him to be a prophet of God, second only to ther Mohammed; and devote Koran believing Muslims will inject the honorary "Peace be upon his name" when saying Jesus' name in conversation.  Heck, even Atheists today hate neither—they just think they are foolish myths.  And Atheists do seek to selectively defame Paul's Epistles—they don't believe any of the Bible writers, neither Old nor New Testaments.  So whence (where from) comes this selective hatred for Paul (and Jesus)?  It is the spirit of the Pharisees (forerunners of modern Judaism) which is the spirit of satan.

    At issue here is whether or not Apostle Paul was a true Apostle of Jesus Christ and whether we can trust what is written in his (Paul's) Epistles to be the written Word of God.  I say "we" in the above sentence, but I don't mean Christians, not true Christians; for there is not a true Christian on this planet who ever even entertained the thought that Apostle Paul was a fake or that his writings (which are over half the Christian New Testament) were spurious.

Let's look at the evidence

    Luke, the author of the Gospel of Luke, wrote the book of Acts, now if Paul was a "false apostle" then Luke must have been in on the conspiracy; for we see Luke write (by the Holy Spirit, I might add) that Paul was said of Jesus to be His (Jesus') "chosen vessel."

Acts 9:11-16
11 And the Lord said unto him, Arise, and go into the street which is called Straight, and inquire in the house of Judas for one called Saul, of Tarsus [Paul before Jesus changed his name]: for, behold, he prayeth,
12 And hath seen in a vision a man named Ananias coming in, and putting his hand on him, that he might receive his sight.
13 Then Ananias answered, Lord, I have heard by many of this man, how much evil he hath done to thy saints at Jerusalem:
14 And here he hath authority from the chief priests to bind all that call on thy name.
15 But the Lord said unto him, Go thy way: for he is a chosen vessel unto me, to bear my name before the Gentiles, and kings, and the children of Israel:
16 For I will shew him how great things he must suffer for my name's sake.  KJV

    So, now in addition to removing half of the books of the New Testament (Paul's writings) you also must take out Luke's Book of Acts and the Gospel of Luke.  That's sixteen out of the New Testament's twenty-seven books so far.

    But you aren't done there; next you must penknife out of the Sacred Writ both of the Epistles of Peter; for, by your own wicked assessment, he too must have been in on this conspiracy that is today called the religion of Christianity.  Apostle Peter (one of the very twelve original Apostles of Christ, I might point out) gives credentials to Apostle Paul:

2 Peter 3:15-18
15 And account that the longsuffering of our Lord is salvation; even as our beloved brother Paul also according to the wisdom given unto him hath written unto you
[half of the New Testament!];
16 As also in all his epistles, speaking in them of these things; in which are some things hard to be understood , which they that are unlearned and unstable wrest, as they do also the other scriptures, unto their own destruction.
17 Ye therefore, beloved, seeing ye know these things before, beware lest ye also, being led away with the error of the wicked, fall from your own stedfastness.
18 But grow in grace, and in the knowledge of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. To him be glory both now and for ever. Amen.  KJV

    There is much more at stake here than Paul's good name; for, to deny some books of the Bible (not to mention over two-thirds of them!!!) is to cast doubt upon them all, and to do that is to cast doubt on the ultimate Author of them all—The Lord God by His Holy Spirit.  God forbid!

    Not much left of the Christian Bible when you defame Apostle Paul, is there?  You wish!  And did your ears just perk up as you read that last above Scripture (Supplied below)?  Well, they should have; for, verse 16 is written of YOU and your fated ilk.  And verse 17 below is what you and your so-called "Chosen Of God" tribesmen are trying to do to us Christians—and have done to the Atheists and your unwitting Judaic brethren of this world.

2 Peter 3:15-18
15 And account that the longsuffering of our Lord is salvation; even as our beloved brother Paul also according to the wisdom given unto him hath written unto you;
16 As also in all his epistles, speaking in them of these things; in which are some things hard to be understood , which they that are unlearned and unstable wrest, as they do also the other scriptures, unto their own destruction.
17 Ye therefore, beloved, seeing ye know these things before, beware lest ye also, being led away with the error of the wicked, fall from your own stedfastness.

    You know, your group killed Apostle Paul and the prophets of the Old Testament, Crucified our savior Jesus Christ—the Son of God, and persecuted to death all the other Apostles save for John.  You slew the first Christian martyr, Steven; hunted down and killed the early Christian faithful, delivering them to the Roman coliseums; hindered the young church; have infiltrated to destroy what's left of the modern church; and now you have to chutzpa to come to a Christian Bible study website and defame Apostle Paul, Apostle Peter, Luke, Jesus Christ, and over two-thirds of the Christian New Testament!  What a great prize for the antichristian Judaics it would be if you could only convince and convert Christians into this vile "doctrine."  It would be a feat unmatched since they:

Acts 5:27-30
27 And when they had brought them, they set them before the council
[the Jewish Sanhedrin]: and the high priest asked them,
28 Saying, Did not we straitly command you that ye should not teach in this
[Jesus] name? and, behold, ye have filled Jerusalem with your doctrine, and intend to bring this man's [Jesus'] blood upon us.
29 Then Peter and the other apostles answered and said, We ought to obey God rather than men.
30 The God of our fathers raised up Jesus, whom ye slew and hanged on a tree.  KJV

    Our Lord gave us a guarantee that the Scriptures are true and correct, and that our Christian faith (of which so much was written of by Paul) is not in vain:

2 Peter 1:16-21
16 For we have not followed cunningly devised fables
[i.e., Christianity is true], when we made known unto you the power and coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, but were eyewitnesses of his majesty.
17 For he received from God the Father honour and glory, when there came such a voice to him from the excellent glory, This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased.
18 And this voice which came from heaven we heard, when we were with him in the holy mount.
19 We have also a more sure word of prophecy; whereunto ye do well that ye take heed, as unto a light that shineth in a dark place, until the day dawn, and the day star arise in your hearts:
20 Knowing this first
[preeminently, most importantly], that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation.
21 For the prophecy came not in old time by the will of man: but holy men of God spake as they were moved by the Holy Ghost.  KJV

and that HE would preserve those Scriptures intact for us to this very day:

Psalm 12
1 Help, Lord; for the godly man ceaseth; for the faithful fail from among the children of men.
2 They speak vanity every one with his neighbour: with flattering lips and with a double heart do they speak.
3 The Lord shall cut off all flattering lips, and the tongue that speaketh proud things:
4 Who have said, With our tongue will we prevail; our lips are our own: who is lord over us?
5 For the oppression of the poor, for the sighing of the needy, now will I arise, saith the Lord; I will set him in safety from him that puffeth at him.
6 The words of the Lord are pure words: as silver tried in a furnace of earth, purified seven times.
7 Thou shalt keep them, O Lord, thou shalt preserve them from this generation for ever.
8 The wicked walk on every side, when the vilest men are exalted.  KJV

and that we could trust them:

2 Tim 3:12-17
12 Yea, and all that will live godly in Christ Jesus shall suffer persecution.
13 But evil men and seducers shall wax
[become] worse and worse, deceiving, and being deceived.
14 But continue thou in the things which thou hast learned and hast been assured of, knowing of whom thou hast learned them;
15 And that from a child thou hast known the holy scriptures, which are able to make thee wise unto salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus.
16 All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness:
17 That the man of God may be perfect
[matured], throughly furnished unto all good works.  KJV
 

A Line by line debunking of the enemy's slander
on the Christian Bible and Apostle Paul

    Now, what I do next, I do not do for you, you antichristian; for your heart is corrupted and hardened.  Nor do I do it because you have a valid argument; for you do not; and I risk giving you credibility by even publishing your foolish words-without-wisdom here.  But what I do in the below I do for the Christian faithful who may run into one of you antichrists and ought to have a ready answer to your filthy conversations.  I also do it to bolster the faith of the "'babes in Christ," the newer Christians, of whom I am a servant, who may have their young faith shaken by false witnesses such as your irresponsible at best, evil at worst, letter.

2 Peter 2:4-14
4 For if God spared not the angels that sinned, but cast them down to hell, and delivered them into chains of darkness, to be reserved unto judgment;
5 And spared not the old world, but saved Noah the eighth person, a preacher of righteousness, bringing in the flood upon the world of the ungodly;
6 And turning the cities of Sodom and Gomorrha into ashes condemned them with an overthrow, making them an ensample unto those that after should live ungodly;
7 And delivered just Lot, vexed with the filthy conversation of the wicked:
8(For that righteous man dwelling among them, in seeing and hearing, vexed his righteous soul from day to day with their unlawful deeds;)
9 The Lord knoweth how to deliver the godly out of temptations, and to reserve the unjust unto the day of judgment to be punished:
10 But chiefly them that walk after the flesh in the lust of uncleanness, and despise government. Presumptuous are they, selfwilled, they are not afraid to speak evil of dignities.
11 Whereas angels, which are greater in power and might, bring not railing accusation against them before the Lord.
12 But these, as natural brute beasts, made to be taken and destroyed, speak evil of the things that they understand not; and shall utterly perish in their own corruption;
13 And shall receive the reward of unrighteousness, as they that count it pleasure to riot in the day time. Spots they are and blemishes, sporting themselves with their own deceivings while they feast with you;
14 Having eyes full of adultery, and that cannot cease from sin; beguiling unstable souls: an heart they have exercised with covetous practices; cursed children:  KJV

Jude 8
8 Likewise also these filthy dreamers defile the flesh, despise dominion, and speak evil of dignities.  KJV

 

Your lies and innuendos answered line by line:

    You said:

"In the book of Acts we find a Pharisee named Saul.
Jesus warned us to be wary of the Pharisees.  From the
beginning of "christianity" Saul was persecuting them,
Satan was a murderer from the beginning.  Saul never
sees Yeshua, but hears a voice.  How do we know this
was truly the Son of God?"

    We know that "this was truly the Son of God" because the Word of God tells us so.  You don't believe that written Word, therefore you are a reed blowing in the wind—which you are attempting to make us into.

Acts 9:4-6
4 And he
[Paul] fell to the earth, and heard a voice saying unto him, Saul, Saul [Paul before Jesus changed his name], why persecutest thou me?
5 And he said, Who art thou, Lord? And the Lord said, I am Jesus whom thou persecutest: it is hard for thee to kick against the pricks.
6 And he trembling and astonished said, Lord, what wilt thou have me to do? And the Lord said unto him, Arise, and go into the city, and it shall be told thee what thou must do.  KJV

    It is true that Paul (Saul) was a Pharisee (a religion, not a race; the ancestor religion to modern day Judaism), a fact that he freely admitted, and that which he was deeply remorseful of.  And before our Lord Jesus Christ converted Paul, Paul, then called Saul, had done many detestable things.  Nobody pains over this more than Paul.  This Paul that you defame is actually a great testament to the saving grace of Jesus Christ, and a witness to the effect that Jesus has on the convert to Christianity.  In God's wisdom He chose not to whitewash the lives of the Apostles and Prophets, God showed us them in all their human fallibility.  And by us seeing that no man is perfect, and then seeing the great change that God effects in the sinner when converting them to Christianity, we too can rest in the hope that while we were once also guilty of many sinful things, that God through Jesus Christ can and will pick us up, clean us off both inside and out, and make us an acceptable child of God.  Isn't that what you really hate?  Apostle Paul's Epistles make ungodly men want to change; and worse, for you—the writings that the Holy Sprit inspired Paul to write make men believe that they can change—that it isn't too late.  That they can be reconciled with God—and Paul does that by pointing them towards Jesus Christ.  Oh, how the Judaics hate that!

    Paul on Paul:

Phil 3:4-14
4 Though I
[Paul] might also have confidence in the flesh. If any other man thinketh that he hath whereof he might trust in the flesh, I more:
5 Circumcised the eighth day, of the stock of Israel, of the tribe of Benjamin, an Hebrew of the Hebrews; as touching the law, a Pharisee;
6 Concerning zeal, persecuting the church; touching the righteousness which is in the law, blameless.
7 But what things were gain to me, those I counted loss for Christ.
8 Yea doubtless, and I count all things but loss for the excellency of the knowledge of Christ Jesus my Lord: for whom I have suffered the loss of all things, and do count them but dung, that I may win Christ,
9 And be found in him, not having mine own righteousness, which is of the law, but that which is through the faith of Christ, the righteousness which is of God by faith:
10 That I may know him, and the power of his resurrection, and the fellowship of his sufferings, being made conformable unto his death;
11 If by any means I might attain unto the resurrection of the dead.
12 Not as though I had already attained, either were already perfect: but I follow after, if that I may apprehend that for which also I am apprehended of Christ Jesus.
13 Brethren, I count not myself to have apprehended: but this one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before,
14 I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus.  KJV

    Paul speaks with humility, honesty, and remorse, over his pre-Christian life:

1 Tim 1:12-17
12 And I
[Paul] thank Christ Jesus our Lord, who hath enabled me, for that he counted me faithful, putting me into the ministry;
13 Who was before a blasphemer, and a persecutor, and injurious: but I obtained mercy, because I did it ignorantly in unbelief.
14 And the grace of our Lord was exceeding abundant with faith and love which is in Christ Jesus.
15 This is a faithful saying, and worthy of all acceptation, that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners; of whom I am chief.
16 Howbeit for this cause I obtained mercy, that in me first Jesus Christ might shew forth all longsuffering, for a pattern to them which should hereafter believe on him to life everlasting.
17 Now unto the King eternal, immortal, invisible, the only wise God, be honour and glory for ever and ever. Amen.  KJV

    Those things in the above that Paul is lamenting upon are still practiced today by so-called Jews.  And the fact that Paul so successfully converted so many unsaved Jews in his day, and that his writings (by the Holy Spirit) are the most effective Scriptures for converting today's lost Jews to Christianity (for, Paul was once what Jews are today—and he can speak to them one-on-one and as one who "has been there") is why the Jews hate Apostle Paul and attempt to do what you are attempting to do here today—to defame Paul's Epistles and thus nullify his teachings.  Jews don't like other Jews converted to life (Christianity), preferring to keep them in a damned state (Christian evangelism is outlawed in Israel today).  Misery truly does love company.  That is why people like myself are more of a friend to the Jews than their enabling "brethren."  Because I tell them the hard truths that they can document in their own Bibles, and may, God willing, cause a few of them to un-hardened their hearts, break from Christ-killing Judaism, and convert to Jesus Christ, and thus life eternal.

    You said:

""But when SAUL had come to Jerusalem HE tried to join
the disciples; but they were ALL AFRAID OF HIM AND DID
NOT BELIEVE THAT HE WAS A DISCIPLE (of Yeshuwa')"(Acts
9:26)."

   Yep, until, that is, Jesus Christ Himself corrected them and assured them that this man was truly chosen by Jesus Christ.  How is it that you missed that?  But you didn't "miss that," did you?  No; you come here with half-truths, skewed Scripture, and outright lies, pushing a pro-Judaic/anti-Christian agenda.

    Luke writes in the book of Acts:

Acts 9:11-16
11 And the Lord said unto him, Arise, and go into the street which is called Straight, and inquire in the house of Judas for one called Saul, of Tarsus [Paul before Jesus changed his name]: for, behold, he prayeth,
12 And hath seen in a vision a man named Ananias coming in, and putting his hand on him, that he might receive his sight.
13 Then Ananias answered, Lord, I have heard by many of this man, how much evil he hath done to thy saints at Jerusalem:
14 And here he hath authority from the chief priests to bind all that call on thy name.
15 But the Lord said unto him, Go thy way: for he is a chosen vessel unto me, to bear my name before the Gentiles, and kings, and the children of Israel:
16 For I will shew him how great things he must suffer for my name's sake.  KJV

    You said:

"The qualifications for an apostle were
these...therefore it is necessary that of the men who
have accompanied us...--BEGINNING WITH THE BAPTISM OF
JOHN until THE DAY HE WAS TAKEN UP FROM US --one of
these must become a witness with us of His
resurrection." (Acts 1:21,22).
Paul never spent a day with the Messiah, that is why
he rarely if ever quotes from Jesus.  He doesn't meet
the criteria to be called an apostle."

    The Scripture that you refer to was speaking of the replacement for Judas Iscariot (the only "Jew" out of the Twelve Disciples, by the way; the rest were Benjamites [Tribe of Benjamin], including Paul), and how that his replacement would be a better Apostle if he had actually personally known Jesus whilst Jesus was still walking the Earth.  (For it is far more effective to be able to say "I have seen...," than to have to say "I have heard that others have seen...".  Which is what hinders us witness'ers-for-Christ today.  And that which the Judaics exploit—naturally!) 

Acts 1:15-26
15 And in those days Peter stood up in the midst of the disciples, and said, (the number of names together were about an hundred and twenty,)
16 Men and brethren, this scripture must needs have been fulfilled, which the Holy Ghost by the mouth of David spake before concerning Judas, which was guide to them that took Jesus.
17 For he was numbered with us, and had obtained part of this ministry.
18 Now this man purchased a field with the reward of iniquity; and falling headlong, he burst asunder in the midst, and all his bowels gushed out.
19 And it was known unto all the dwellers at Jerusalem; insomuch as that field is called in their proper tongue, Aceldama, that is to say, The field of blood.
20 For it is written in the book of Psalms, Let his habitation be desolate, and let no man dwell therein: and his bishoprick let another take.
21 Wherefore of these men which have companied with us all the time that the Lord Jesus went in and out among us,
22 Beginning from the baptism of John, unto that same day that he was taken up from us, must one be ordained to be a witness with us of his resurrection.
23 And they appointed two, Joseph called Barsabas, who was surnamed Justus, and Matthias.
24 And they prayed, and said, Thou, Lord, which knowest the hearts of all men, shew whether of these two thou hast chosen,
25 That he may take part of this ministry and apostleship, from which Judas by transgression fell, that he might go to his own place.
26 And they gave forth their lots; and the lot fell upon Matthias; and he was numbered with the eleven apostles.  KJV

    In verse 24 above we see Peter pray for Jesus to make the choice: "Thou, Lord, which knowest the hearts of all men, shew whether of these two thou hast chosen".   And also by supernatural operation, Jesus Christ Himself chose Apostle Paul, and He made sure that Paul knew Jesus Christ:

    Luke records Paul's (then called Saul) conversion and Christ's orders to ministry:

Acts 9:1-6
9:1 And Saul
[Paul], yet breathing out threatenings and slaughter against the disciples of the Lord, went unto the high priest,
2 And desired of him letters to Damascus to the synagogues, that if he found any of this way, whether they were men or women, he might bring them bound unto Jerusalem.
3 And as he journeyed, he came near Damascus: and suddenly there shined round about him a light from heaven:
4 And he fell to the earth, and heard a voice saying unto him, Saul, Saul , why persecutest thou me?
5 And he said, Who art thou, Lord? And the Lord said, I am Jesus whom thou persecutest: it is hard for thee to kick against the pricks.
6 And he trembling and astonished said, Lord, what wilt thou have me to do? And the Lord said unto him, Arise, and go into the city, and it shall be told thee what thou must do.  KJV

    Paul was not one of the Twelve Apostles (which were before known as the Twelve Disciples before Christ "sent them forth"; yet there were hundreds of other "disciples"), he never claimed to be one of the twelve.  But Paul was an apostle of Jesus Christ; there are even apostles today—men doing the bidding of God and Christ Jesus.  Your ignorance to the meaning of the word "apostle" is causing you difficulty.  (I find it so funny when unsaved Jews try to grasp Christian doctrine and Christian terms for the purpose of trying to show "inconsistency" and "contradiction", and then terribly fumble.)  The word "apostle" means "one sent forth."  Paul was "sent forth" by the very Master, Jesus Christ, Himself.  Good enough for me, how about for you?

    Paul humbly admits to being the very least of the Apostles, musing that he himself does not even feel worthy to be so called:   

1 Cor 15:3-10
3 For I
[Paul] delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures;
4 And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:
5 And that he was seen of Cephas
[Apostle Peter], then of the twelve:
6 After that, he was seen of above five hundred brethren at once; of whom the greater part remain unto this present, but some are fallen asleep.
7 After that, he was seen of James; then of all the apostles.
8 And last of all he was seen of me also, as of one born out of due time.
9 For I am the least of the apostles, that am not meet
[worthy] to be called an apostle, because I persecuted the church of God.
10 But by the grace of God I am what I am: and his grace which was bestowed upon me was not in vain; but I laboured more abundantly than they all: yet not I, but the grace of God which was with me.  KJV

apostle:  Greek word #652  apostolos (ap-os'-tol-os); from NT:649; a delegate; specially, an ambassador of the Gospel; officially a commissioner of Christ ["apostle"] (with miraculous powers):  KJV - apostle, messenger, he that is sent.

NT:649:  apostello (ap-os-tel'-lo); from NT:575 and NT:4724; set apart, i.e. (by implication) to send out (properly, on a mission) literally or figuratively:  KJV - put in, send (away, forth, out), set [at liberty].

    As a side note:  The Twelve Disciples were first called the Twelve Apostles when the Lord send them forth, which is the definition of apostle ("to send out").  Observe the transition from disciples to apostles:

Matt 9:35-10:6
35 And Jesus went about all the cities and villages, teaching in their synagogues, and preaching the gospel of the kingdom, and healing every sickness and every disease among the people.
36 But when he saw the multitudes, he was moved with compassion on them, because they fainted, and were scattered abroad, as sheep having no shepherd.
37 Then saith he unto his disciples, The harvest truly is plenteous, but the labourers are few;
38 Pray ye therefore the Lord of the harvest, that he will send forth labourers into his harvest.

Matthew 10

10:1 And when he had called unto him his twelve disciples, he gave them power against unclean spirits, to cast them out, and to heal all manner of sickness and all manner of disease.
2 Now the names of the twelve apostles are these; The first, Simon, who is called Peter, and Andrew his brother; James the son of Zebedee, and John his brother;
3 Philip, and Bartholomew; Thomas, and Matthew the publican; James the son of Alphaeus, and Lebbaeus, whose surname was Thaddaeus;
4 Simon the Canaanite, and Judas Iscariot, who also betrayed him.
5 These twelve Jesus
sent forth, and commanded them, saying, Go not into the way of the Gentiles, and into any city of the Samaritans enter ye not:
6 But go rather to the lost sheep of the house of Israel.  KJV

    You said:

"'PAUL' declared: "If we or an angel from heaven preach
ANY OTHER GOSPEL to you than what we have preached to
you "LET HIM BE A CURSE" (Gal 1:9).  Many of Pauls
teachings do not parralel that of Jesus' teachings. "

  Part of me wants to call you an idiot.  But I won't.  Sir, Paul taught what Jesus Christ inspired him teach, how can you say that Paul's teachings "did not parallel" Jesus' teachings?  From the very Scripture that you reference above we see this.  Of course, you "conveniently" cut your excerpt short by three verses; and not surprisingly, for it is in those final verses that which you wanted to disavow:

Gal 1:6-12
6 I
[Paul] marvel that ye are so soon removed from him that called you into the grace of Christ unto another gospel:
7 Which is not another; but there be some that trouble you, and would pervert the gospel of Christ.
8 But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed.
9 As we said before, so say I now again, If any man preach any other gospel unto you than that ye have received, let him be accursed.
10 For do I now persuade men, or God? or do I seek to please men? for if I yet pleased men, I should not be the servant of Christ.
11 But I certify you, brethren, that the gospel which was preached of
[by] me is not after man.
12 For I neither received it of man, neither was I taught it, but by the revelation of Jesus Christ.  KJV

    You said:

""For I BECAME YOUR FATHER through the  gospel I
preach" (1 Corinthians 4:15).
Didn't Jesus say to call no man your father?  Call no
man rabbi or teacher?  For only one in heaven is your
Father?  Yet Paul says I became your father, once
again, because Saul never spent a day with the
Teacher, he taught otherwise."

    No, Sir; you misquote the Scripture and add your own words to make a point that isn't valid.

    You "quote":

"For I BECAME YOUR FATHER through the  gospel I preach" (1 Corinthians 4:15). "

    The Scripture quote is:

1 Cor 4:15
15 For though ye have ten thousand instructors in Christ, yet have ye not many fathers
[in Christianity, i.e., church "fathers"] : for in Christ Jesus I have begotten you through the gospel.

    Paul was speaking to the early church that he founded for the Lord Jesus Christ.  Paul as a "founding father" of so many early Christian churches (much like we refer to the early Christian leaders as the "Church Fathers," or in America's history we refer to the early founders of this nation's Constitution as the "Founding Fathers") felt responsible for their early development.  And he took it personally when they started to backslide.  It was Paul's responsibility to the Lord to mold and guide the early churches that he was used by God to establish.  It is that context that Paul could be called a "founding father" of the church at Corinth, whom he was addressing (and so many others).  Below is the Scripture that you (purposely) butchered, which will bear out what I have just explained:

1 Cor 3:21-5:1 [Paul speaking]
21 Therefore let no man glory in men. For all things are yours;
22 Whether Paul, or Apollos, or Cephas, or the world, or life, or death, or things present, or things to come; all are yours;
23 And ye are Christ's; and Christ is God's.

1 Corinthians 4
4:1 Let a man so account of us, as of the ministers of Christ, and stewards of the mysteries of God.
2 Moreover it is required in stewards, that a man be found faithful.
3 But with me it is a very small thing that I should be judged of you, or of man's judgment: yea, I judge not mine own self.
4 For I know nothing by myself; yet am I not hereby justified: but he that judgeth me is the Lord.
5 Therefore judge nothing before the time, until the Lord come, who both will bring to light the hidden things of darkness, and will make manifest the counsels of the hearts: and then shall every man have praise of God.
6 And these things, brethren, I have in a figure transferred to myself and to Apollos for your sakes; that ye might learn in us not to think of men above that which is written, that no one of you be puffed up for one against another.
7 For who maketh thee to differ from another? and what hast thou that thou didst not receive? now if thou didst receive it, why dost thou glory, as if thou hadst not received it?
8 Now ye are full, now ye are rich, ye have reigned as kings without us: and I would to God ye did reign, that we also might reign with you.
9 For I think that God hath set forth us the apostles last, as it were appointed to death: for we are made a spectacle unto the world, and to angels, and to men.
10 We are fools for Christ's sake, but ye are wise in Christ; we are weak, but ye are strong; ye are honourable, but we are despised.
11 Even unto this present hour we both hunger, and thirst, and are naked, and are buffeted, and have no certain dwellingplace;
12 And labour, working with our own hands: being reviled, we bless; being persecuted, we suffer it:
13 Being defamed, we intreat: we are made as the filth of the world, and are the offscouring of all things unto this day.
14 I write not these things to shame you, but as my beloved sons I warn you.
15 For though ye have ten thousand instructors in Christ, yet have ye not many fathers: for in Christ Jesus I have begotten you through the gospel.
16 Wherefore I beseech you, be ye followers of me.
17 For this cause have I sent unto you Timotheus, who is my beloved son, and faithful in the Lord, who shall bring you into remembrance of my ways which be in Christ, as I teach every where in every church.
18 Now some are puffed up, as though I would not come to you.
19 But I will come to you shortly, if the Lord will, and will know, not the speech of them which are puffed up, but the power.
20 For the kingdom of God is not in word, but in power.
21 What will ye? shall I come unto you with a rod, or in love, and in the spirit of meekness?  KJV

    You said:

"Paul'wrote the LIE to his Galation followers that he
('Paul')and NOT PETER" was entrusted with the gospel
to the Gentiles" (Galations 2:7). In that same
infamous letter 'Paul' also attacked the integrity of
the faithful apostle PETER by making un-corroborated
and FALSE CHARGES against him."

    Excuse me???, "Paul's LIE to the Galatians"!!!  That is what you and your ilk call it, but us Christians refer to it as the Epistle to the Galatians, it is in our Christian Bible, it is God-inspired Scripture and you do blaspheme Him and His written Word—the book that you so hate because it speaks of your trip through hell into the Lake of Fire.  Shalom rabbi; nice try.

    I know why the Jews especially hate Apostle Paul, they hate Paul almost as much as they hate Jesus Christ.  The reason they hate Paul is two-fold; 1. because Paul was so successful in converting Jews to Jesus Christ; and 2. because Paul treated the Gentiles as well as he treated Israelites.  Jews then, and today, consider non-Jews to be human cattle and subhuman (they use the pejorative "Goyim," and "Goi" for all non-Jews todaya corrupted crypto-usage of the Hebrew Old Testament word for Gentiles).  How upset they are when Paul treats all men as children of God and beloved!

    Observe the Scripture that you refer to, and the Christians reading along here can fill in the blanks as to why you desperately need to discredit Paul:

Gal 2:1-9
2:1 Then fourteen years after I
[Paul] went up again to Jerusalem with Barnabas, and took Titus with me also.
2 And I went up by revelation, and communicated unto them that gospel which I preach among the Gentiles, but privately to them which were of reputation, lest by any means I should run, or had run, in vain.
3 But neither Titus, who was with me, being a Greek, was compelled to be circumcised:
4 And that because of false brethren unawares brought in, who came in privily to spy out our liberty which we have in Christ Jesus, that they might bring us into bondage:
5 To whom we gave place by subjection, no, not for an hour; that the truth of the gospel might continue with you.
6 But of these who seemed to be somewhat, (whatsoever they were, it maketh no matter to me: God accepteth no man's person:) for they who seemed to be somewhat in conference added nothing to me:
7 But contrariwise, when they saw that the gospel of the uncircumcision
[to the Gentiles] was committed unto me [Paul], as the gospel of the circumcision [Israel] was unto Peter;
8 (For he that wrought effectually in Peter to the apostleship of the circumcision
[Israel], the same was mighty in me toward the Gentiles [the uncircumsized]:)
9 And when James, Cephas
[Peter], and John, who seemed to be pillars, perceived the grace that was given unto me, they gave to me and Barnabas the right hands of fellowship; that we should go unto the heathen, and they unto the circumcision.  KJV

    Initially, Peter and the other Apostles were ordered by Jesus Christ to just go to Israelites.  That was to change later after Christ's resurrection; but for then, Peter (and the others) were sent only to "the circumcision;" i.e., true Israel:

Matt 10:5-7
5 These twelve Jesus sent forth, and commanded them, saying, Go not into the way of the Gentiles, and into any city of the Samaritans enter ye not:
6 But go rather to the lost sheep of the house of Israel.
7 And as ye go, preach, saying, The kingdom of heaven is at hand.  KJV

    For that matter, at the start of His ministry, Jesus Himself was only sent to the (true) Israelites:

Matt 15:21-28
21 Then Jesus went thence, and departed into the coasts of Tyre and Sidon.
22 And, behold, a woman of Canaan
[ancestor to many of today's so-called (impostor) "Jews"] came out of the same coasts, and cried unto him, saying, Have mercy on me, O Lord, thou Son of David; my daughter is grievously vexed with a devil.
23 But he answered her not a word. And his disciples came and besought him, saying, Send her away; for she crieth after us.
24 But he
[Jesus] answered and said, I am not sent but unto the lost sheep of the house of Israel.
25 Then came she and worshipped him, saying, Lord, help me.
26 But he answered and said, It is not meet to take the children's bread, and to cast it to dogs.
27 And she said, Truth, Lord: yet the dogs eat of the crumbs which fall from their masters' table.
28 Then Jesus answered and said unto her, O woman, great is thy faith: be it unto thee even as thou wilt. And her daughter was made whole from that very hour.  KJV

   The so-called Jews of today are okay with that, in a way, as they errantly think that they are these "Jews" spoken of in the Bible.  But they become indignant when this gift was also offered to the "lowly" Gentles, as Paul's ministry did.  This is where a main part of the hatred of Paul by Jews began.  You see, modern day Jewish leaders can easily tolerate today's Christian churches because those churches have been infiltrated and corrupted from within, and today teach almost a form of worship of the Jew.  But it is ministries like ours here at WBSG that especially upset the International Judaics, for we speak the truth of these people and expose that they are not Israel from God but are rather impostors from satan.  That is why they call us AntiSemitic (when there isn't an AntiSemitic bone in our bodies).  The truth isn't an "'ism" anything.

    And besides, today's modern day so-called "Jews" are not even a Semitic people (illustrating the folly of the pejorative label "AntiSemitism"), which is to say that they do not descend from Noah's son Shem, which is what a "Semite" (Shemite) is; no, they herald from Noah's son Japheth on their good (best) side, and from Esau, Ham, and in the upper cadre, from Cain himself—every cursed of God people who they came into contact with in during their long and cursed vagabond history; and they have little if any blood of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob coursing through their veins.  They are impostors from the Pale of Civilization, the Steppes of Russia, fleeing the hoards of the Huns (whom they share common blood with), swarming into eastern Europe, corrupting it; who were before from the temples of Babylon whence they picked up their Jewish Babylonian Talmud; picking up doctrines of devils in the sands of Egypt—which against God's orders they returned to; flowing through Persian palaces where they were the court magicians and astrologers—two capital offences in the Old Testament; through Nineveh with her legion of false gods and demons in disguise coursed this symbolic snake; Sodom, Ur, Erek (Cain's city of "Enoch") were stops high and low in its courses.

    These usurpers, these impostors, this Turko-Mongoloid people whose ancestors converted to their already by then corrupted religion in the seventh century A.D. which is today known around the world as Judaism, wrote a little letter in 1897 that we weren't supposed to see.  But God intervened and struck down an Illuminati bicycle courier with a bolt of lightening; the rescuers discovered the manifesto on the courier's corpse, revealing to the world the plan of the International Judaics (the Learned Elders) once and for all.  And ever since then they have been trying to suppress this document.  In Russia, in 1917, after the Jewish Bolshevik Revolution, mere possession of a copy the Protocols of the learned Elders of Zion (which were followed to a "T" in that overthrow of Russia by the Jewish-frenzied "maddened mob" spoken of at the end of paragraph 4 below, written twenty years before the fact) gained one an instant execution in his front lawn right before his family's eyes, who were left the corpse to bury.  In it we read:

PROTOCOL No. 3
[The Symbolic Snake of Judaism]

[1.] To-day I may tell you that our goal is now only a few steps off. There remains a small space to cross and the whole long path we [Jews] have trodden is ready now to close its cycle of the Symbolic Snake, by which we symbolize our people. When this ring closes, all the States of Europe will be locked in its coil as in a powerful vice.

[2.] The constitution scales of these days will shortly break down, for we have established them with a certain lack of accurate balance in order that they may oscillate incessantly until they wear through the pivot on which they turn. The GOYIM are under the impression that they have welded them sufficiently strong and they have all along kept on expecting that the scales would come into equilibrium. But the pivots -- the kings on their thrones -- are hemmed in by their representatives, who play the fool, distraught with their own uncontrolled and irresponsible power. This power they owe to the terror which has been breathed into the palaces. As they have no means of getting at their people, into their very midst, the kings on their thrones are no longer able to come to terms with them and so strengthen themselves against seekers after power. We have made a gulf between the far-seeing Sovereign Power and the blind force of the people so that both have lost all meaning, for like the blind man and his stick, both are powerless apart.

[3.] In order to incite seekers after power to a misuse of power we have set all forces in opposition one to another, breaking up their liberal tendencies towards independence. To this end we have stirred up every form of enterprise, we have armed all parties, we have set up authority as a target for every ambition.

    Moving on...

   Observe Jesus' commission to Paul to evangelize the Gentiles into Christianity:

Acts 22:17-21
17 And it came to pass, that, when I
[Paul] was come again to Jerusalem, even while I prayed in the temple, I was in a trance;
18 And saw him
[Jesus] saying unto me, Make haste, and get thee quickly out of Jerusalem: for they will not receive thy testimony concerning me.
19 And I said, Lord, they know that I imprisoned and beat in every synagogue them that believed on thee:
20 And when the blood of thy martyr Stephen was shed, I also was standing by, and consenting unto his death, and kept the raiment of them that slew him.
21 And he
[Jesus] said unto me, Depart: for I will send thee far hence unto the Gentiles.  KJV

   So, if you have a problem with Paul evangelizing the Gentiles then you need to take that up with Jesus Christ who gave the order.

    You said:

"Now, concerning FOOD OFFERED TO IDOLS I (Paul) am
fully convinced NO FOOD is UNCLEAN in itself, because
THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS AN IDOL IN THE WORLD"(Romans
14:14. 1 Corinthians 8:4).
THIS EVIL TEACHING IS IN BLATANT DISREGARD FOR THE
COMMAND OF THE SPIRIT OF THE HOLY ONE AND THE TWELVE
APOSTLES:
"For it seemed good to the spirit of The Holy One, and
to us, to lay upon you no greater burden than THESE
NECESSARY THINGS; That you ABSTAIN FROM MEATS OFFERED
TO IDOLS, and from blood, and from things strangled
and from fornication..."(Acts 15:28:29)."

   More misquoting from you, naturally.  I am going to be speeding this up from here on out.  Below is the Scripture that explains that which you are trying to confuse in your above false accusation:

1 Cor 8 [Paul speaking]
8:1 Now as touching things offered unto idols, we know that we all have knowledge. Knowledge puffeth up, but charity edifieth.
2 And if any man think that he knoweth anything, he knoweth nothing yet as he ought to know.
3 But if any man love God, the same is known of him.
4 As concerning therefore the eating of those things that are offered in sacrifice unto idols, we know that an idol is nothing in the world, and that there is none other God but one.
5 For though there be that are called gods, whether in heaven or in earth, (as there be gods many, and lords many,)
6 But to us there is but one God, the Father, of whom are all things, and we in him; and one Lord Jesus Christ, by whom are all things, and we by him.
7 Howbeit there is not in every man that knowledge: for some with conscience of the idol unto this hour eat it as a thing offered unto an idol; and their conscience being weak is defiled.
8 But meat commendeth us not to God: for neither, if we eat, are we the better; neither, if we eat not, are we the worse.
9 But take heed lest by any means this liberty of yours become a stumblingblock to them that are weak.
10 For if any man see thee which hast knowledge sit at meat in the idol's temple, shall not the conscience of him which is weak be emboldened to eat those things which are offered to idols;
11 And through thy knowledge shall the weak brother perish, for whom Christ died?
12 But when ye sin so against the brethren, and wound their weak conscience, ye sin against Christ.
13 Wherefore, if meat make my brother to offend, I will eat no flesh while the world standeth, lest I make my brother to offend.  KJV

    You said:

"Jesus never put down women, but Paul says they should
'shut up' in church."

    Nice try, try to get the women on board with your way of thinking by appealing to their sense of worth.  Jesus, who was God in the flesh, did not annul His own teachings which were later delivered through Paul by the Holy Spirit of God.  Jesus did speak to women one on one, but that was because He was God and they were His daughters.  He often called the women "daughters."  But even when speaking to the woman by the well He told her to go fetch her husband and then Jesus was to continue—thus preserving the family hierarchy of husband over wife.  No where in Scripture did He stop speaking to a man and tell him to go get his wife before continuing:

John 4:10-16
10 Jesus answered and said unto her, If thou knewest the gift of God, and who it is that saith to thee, Give me to drink; thou wouldest have asked of him, and he would have given thee living water.
11 The woman saith unto him, Sir, thou hast nothing to draw with, and the well is deep: from whence then hast thou that living water?
12 Art thou greater than our father Jacob, which gave us the well, and drank thereof himself, and his children, and his cattle?
13 Jesus answered and said unto her, Whosoever drinketh of this water shall thirst again:
14 But whosoever drinketh of the water that I shall give him shall never thirst; but the water that I shall give him shall be in him a well of water springing up into everlasting life.
15 The woman saith unto him, Sir, give me this water, that I thirst not, neither come hither to draw.
16 Jesus saith unto her, Go, call thy husband, and come hither.  KJV

    People like you (and all overthrown Feminist-minded women) really hate Paul for his strong teachings on gender roles.  (Which is why we have such an onslaught of Homosexuals today who don't what they are.)  But Paul did not make them up, they came from God:

1 Cor 14:34
34 Let your women keep silence in the churches: for it is not permitted unto them to speak; but they are commanded to be under obedience, as also saith the law  KJV

    What Law was Paul referring to when he said, "as also saith the law"?  He was referring to words uttered out of mouth of no less than the Lord God Himself (the "Law" is what is referred to as the first five books of Moses, the Pentatuch―Gen-Duet):

Gen 3:16
16 Unto the woman
[Eve] he [God] said, I will greatly multiply thy sorrow and thy conception; in sorrow thou shalt bring forth children; and thy desire shall be to thy husband, and he shall rule over thee.  KJV

   Now your problem isn't just with Paul and Jesus Christ, you have graduated—now you challenge God Himself.

    You said:

"Jesus delivered people from
satan, yet Paul delivers them to satan.
If anyone among you leads a vagabond life HE MUST BE
LEFT TO STARVE...HAVE NOTHING TO DO WITH THEM...LET
THEM EAT THEIR OWN BREAD" (2 Thessalonians 3:6-12
Jesus often ate and drank with the sinners, he fed
them, another example of Pauls false doctrine.
"FOR I WAS HUNGRY AND YOU GAVE ME NOTHING TO EAT";"

    Paul was speaking of the lazy, Jesus was speaking of the impoverished—there is a world of difference between the two:

2 Thess 3:6-12
6 Now we command you, brethren, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that ye withdraw yourselves from every brother that walketh disorderly, and not after the tradition which he received of us.
7 For yourselves know how ye ought to follow us: for we behaved not ourselves disorderly among you;
8 Neither did we eat any man's bread for nought; but wrought with labour and travail night and day, that we might not be chargeable to any of you:
9 Not because we have not power, but to make ourselves an ensample unto you to follow us.
10 For even when we were with you, this we commanded you, that if any would not work, neither should he eat.
11 For we hear that there are some which walk among you disorderly, working not at all, but are busybodies.
12 Now them that are such we command and exhort by our Lord Jesus Christ, that with quietness they work, and eat their own bread. KJV

    "Would not work" does not mean "can not work", it means REFUSES to work; i.e., a lazy person who does nothing and expects handouts from others, like the great majority in our inner cities ungratefully do today.  And what Paul said was no new idea, the same Holy Spirit that inspired Paul to write the above also inspired the Old Testament Proverbs which ideas Paul was drawing from:

Prov 20:4
4 The sluggard
[lazy, like today's "welfare queens" and mooches, who are not impoverished, but lazy] will not plow by reason of the cold; therefore shall he beg in harvest, and have nothing.  KJV

Prov 13:25
25 The righteous eateth to the satisfying of his soul: but the belly of the wicked shall want.  KJV

Prov 19:15
15 Slothfulness
[lazyness] casteth into a deep sleep; and an idle soul shall suffer hunger.  KJV

Prov 26:14
14 As the door turneth upon his hinges, so doth the slothful upon his bed.  KJV

    You said:

"There are 26 books in the New Testament, 13 written by
Paul.  That's half of them. 
Just as there were two trees in the garden of Eden, so
there are two trees in the New Testament.
Paul was a Pharisee, a murderer, a liar, and boastful,
and he met none of the requirements to be an apostle.
He claimed super Divine revelation... as far as we
know, it was Satan and NOT Jesus who met him on the
DAmascus Rd.  I plan on doing a detailed study of this
because it is so important to understand the truth of
this matter.  Paul twists the scriptures and makes up
his own, and damns anybody who would preach otherwise."

    It is not Paul that has delivered your damnation unto you.

    You said:

"Thank you for your teachings, and may God bless you
and yours.
Peace"

    Please don't you "bless" me; it makes me sick coming from the likes of you.  The most grotesque thing is that you do all of this while pretending to be a Christian.  As for you and what you are saying here, I will listen to the good advice of the Bible:

Titus 1:13-16
13 This witness is true. Wherefore rebuke them sharply, that they may be sound in the faith;
14 Not giving heed to Jewish fables, and commandments of men, that turn from the truth.
15 Unto the pure all things are pure: but unto them that are defiled and unbelieving is nothing pure; but even their mind and conscience is defiled.
16 They profess that they know God; but in works they deny him, being abominable, and disobedient, and unto every good work reprobate.  KJV

A (different) reader writes in to comment on the above:

[the "Ann Coulter" question] was asked by me.  I am so appreciative of all three of you and your insights.  Sometimes knowledge is knowledge and sometimes it becomes a maze of mirrors; i.e., a trap.

Another of the letters in this last set caught my eye and addresses this issue - the attack on Paul.  Your wonderful answer mentions that those who would attack the credibility of Paul are either 1) Jews or 2) converts to Judaism.  I fall into neither category, but in my early years, in an attempt to pull away from the faith with which I was raised, I latched on to the words of smug, pseudo-intellectuals (like the individual who sent the letter to you) who claim that since Paul was/is not credible, then the Bible must be nothing more than a collection of the oral traditions/myths of a band of nomadic peoples (the Israelites). 

These pseudo-intellectuals to whom I refer were primarily my college professors.  I walked straight into the trap that is the double-edged sword of higher education.  Not all of them were Jews; nor am I, but I temporarily bought it - because I wanted to.  I was looking for the (seductive) argument that would allow me to live without regard for eventual judgment.  And the intellectuals with all that "knowledge," and rhetoric were right there to take me in hand. 

Now, I understand that there is an unseen "power," or driving force, behind our colleges and universities that promotes the above-mentioned rhetoric, but I am speaking about the front-men, the college professors who are not knowingly carrying out the will of the International Judaics.  I became one of them for a time.  When I think about the things I said and hinted at to the students in my classes - I shudder. And I did it all with the smugness of intellectual pursuit, of "teaching the students to think." 

You wrote, "There is much more at stake here than Paul's good name; for, to deny some books of the Bible (not to mention over two-thirds of them!!!) is to cast doubt upon them all, and to do that is to cast doubt on the ultimate Author of them all—The Lord God by His Holy Spirit.  God forbid!" 

Yes indeed, God forbid!  And by God's grace I stepped back from the intellectualization of my soul - even still, however, from time to time I find myself focused on the "head of the pin:" the question, instead of the Answer.  I am not new to Christianity, The Bible, God; I am new to actually living my beliefs, admitting my beliefs, hence my frustration with the information age and the ultimate heaviness of thinking too much and surrendering too little. 

Again, thanks to all three of you for reminding me of the peacefulness and lightness of surrender to God, a questionless-state!

More verse-skewing on masturbation

 

A reader writes:

Dear Sir,                                                                              10/15/06

I am writing this note as a comment.  I do not mean it to be "condescending," or "haughty," to you.  Having said this. I do disagree with the "notion" that Masturbation is not a sin.  I found a verse in Proverbs 6:25 "Do not lust after her in your heart, not let her allure you with her eyelids." (NKJV).  This was quoted by Jesus of Nazareth in the Book of Matthew 5:28.  I think that Romans 6:12 applies to this subject. Plus Romans 13:14; Gal.5:17; Eph.2:3; and finally 2 Cor.10:5;  One question, How can Masturbation glorify God?  If my focus is on God, then the lust of the flesh will not be fulfilled!  ... I hope that this email letter will prove helpful. Thank you for your time to allow me to have a say on this subject. Have a blessed week.

Sincerely, [Xxxxxx]

P.S. it looks like that there could be some "seared" consciences at work that fail to address this issue properly.


 Answer:

Cute postscript.  Moving on... 

    You post a bunch of Scriptures as though your much speaking will make you heard.  Your Scriptures are off-topic and not relevant to this matter.  For instance, you supplied the below Scriptures in your E-mail.  Below are all the Scriptures that were in your E-mail, I have left none out.  After your Scripture, I have noted the context for you.  Where do you see masturbation?  Or do you just like to make up stuff that fits in with your particular opinions?  I think that that is a greater wrong (adding to God's Word) than masturbation could ever be. 

Proverbs 6:25 -- It is saying that men should stay away from whorish women.  Refer to verse 26. 

Matthew 5:28 -- "But I say unto you, That whosoever looketh on a woman to lust after her hath committed adultery with her already in his heart." (Mat 5:28).  To lust after a MARRIED woman is wrong.  The word "woman" as used in this verse is gune, which is not "a female" it is a WIFE (of another man).  Your clue should have been the use of the word "adultery."  You cannot commit adultery with a single woman.  Anyway, observe the particular "woman" meant here:

Woman: Greek word #1135  gune (goo-nay'); probably from the base of NT:1096; a woman; specially, a wife:  KJV - wife, woman.
(Biblesoft's New Exhaustive Strong's Numbers and Concordance with Expanded Greek-Hebrew Dictionary. Copyright © 1994, 2003 Biblesoft, Inc. and International Bible Translators, Inc.)

Romans 6:12 -- It says 'don't sin in the flesh.'  It does not identify masturbation as a sin.  Observe in context: "Let not sin therefore reign in your mortal body, that ye should obey it in the lusts thereof."  (Rom 6:12). 

Romans 13:14 --  It is referring to sexual indiscretions with other people, not masturbation.  Observe in context, paying particular attention to the sexual aspect of the subject, that being "chambering and wantonness".  These are not things that one can do alone, as is adultery also an act that requires a partner:

Romans 13:13-14
13 Let us walk honestly, as in the day; not in rioting and drunkenness, not in chambering and wantonness, not in strife and envying.
14 But put ye on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make not provision for the flesh, to fulfil the lusts thereof.  KJV

Gal.5:17 --  How you slipped masturbation into this one I'll never know.  Certainly you don't lust after yourself?  "For the flesh lusteth against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh: and these are contrary the one to the other: so that ye cannot do the things that ye would." (Gal 5:17).  You seem to be missing the entire gist of the verse.  And I won't even confuse you with the very next verse, which certainly must confound your interpretation of your cited verse:  "But if ye be led of the Spirit, ye are not under the law." (Gal 5:18).

Eph.2:3 --  You are just inserting in your mind the word "masturbation" wherever you find the word "lust" in the Scriptures.  This verse has nothing to do with masturbation.  Observe how far you are reaching here to make the Scriptures say what you want them to say:  "Among whom also we all had our conversation in times past in the lusts of our flesh, fulfilling the desires of the flesh and of the mind; and were by nature the children of wrath, even as others." (Eph 2:3). 

2 Cor.10:5 --  Now you are really reaching!  "Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ;" (2 Cor 10:5).  Please stop overreaching. 

    Listen, I know that masturbation is not a pretty subject for a Bible study, and I wouldn't have to mention here if it weren't for holier-than-though's who keep misleading people and placing burdens on them that I am sure that you could not have lived up to decades ago.  There are enough sins in the Bible that the people need to avoid, why place more on them than God did?  God is not bashful, and He is acutely aware of the human sex drive in His children.  Don't you think that if He was upset about masturbation that He might have just came out and said it?  I mean, He told us not to commit adultery and homosexuality―so surely God is not bashful to mention sexual things. 

    Masturbation is not lust, it is release.  It is private and ought to stay that way.  Leave it in privacy where it belongs. 

You asked:

"How can Masturbation glorify God?"

    It can't, nobody said that it did.  Does everything that YOU do glorify God?  There are many bodily functions that do not glorify God, are you going to be able to cut those out as well.  Need I explain it any more graphically, or do you get the picture? 

    Perhaps you are impotent (or frigid) or very old, or have a spouse; but many readers here (and many Christians everywhere) are not so afflicted or attached.  Why put burdens on them that are not in the Scriptures?  Hey, if masturbation is a sin in your mind—then don't you do it.  But if you are going to tell young single Christians that it is a sin, then you had better be able to show them where God said it in His written Word—else, all they have is your opinion.  And I'm sorry Sir/Madam—but that isn't going to be good enough.  They want to hear what God says, not what you or I say.  We find what God says by reading His written Word.

    And if you are not careful you could find yourself acting like the Pharisees who put undo burden on the new Christians according their own opinions.

Acts 15:5-12
5 But there rose up certain of the sect of the Pharisees which believed, saying, That it was needful to circumcise them, and to command them to keep the law of Moses.
6 And the apostles and elders came together for to consider of this matter.
7 And when there had been much disputing, Peter rose up, and said unto them, Men and brethren, ye know how that a good while ago God made choice among us, that the Gentiles by my mouth should hear the word of the gospel, and believe.
8 And God, which knoweth the hearts, bare them witness, giving them the Holy Ghost, even as he did unto us;
9 And put no difference between us and them, purifying their hearts by faith.
10 Now therefore why tempt ye God, to put a yoke upon the neck of the disciples, which neither our fathers nor we were able to bear?
11 But we believe that through the grace of the Lord Jesus Christ we shall be saved, even as they.
12 Then all the multitude kept silence, and gave audience to Barnabas and Paul, declaring what miracles and wonders God had wrought among the Gentiles by them.  KJV

Peace to you in Christ Jesus.

Possessed husband―what to do?

 

A (female) reader writes:

Greetings Nick, Glad to see your gettin it done! . . . . This is a new thing I am dealing with. My spouse, who always goes to his place, comes back and said "Your Satan's whore," quotes a million verses of scripture, more with a twist, Then said "It no secret that you'll have to do business with Satan, cause I'm leaving you, holding the bag, to fend for yourself, and your daughter. I am making preparations to do so. It going to take me about 6mos to a year. So get ready!!"

He has split personality, also [Xxx]. My daughter loves him, and said Mom he's a sick man, we must overlook his behavior. . . . He has terribly nightmares. Screaming type. He is medicated. But there not a doubt he has demons, I cast them out and they are back again, usually by sundown. I just go do whatever and then get into my Bible, and try to ignore him. Don't worry! he pushes my buttons at time. But I feel I am controlling much better than before. It was like fighting Satan. I told him I am not fighting with Satan, shutup, and ignore him. He goes to his room ,shuts the door. So, Nick! Is there any words of suggestion to me, or just keep doing as I am. His new statement took me for a loop. Please pray the Lord allows the Holy Spirit to speak to me. Things keep getter harder and harder. But I am not throwing in No towel! My destiny is not being a quitter. Thanks ever so much! I see also how that 16th ammend. fitted in with that Wilson movement of 1913.  Your work is so informing, thank you!

Servant in Christ, Your friend, [Xxxxxx]


Answer:

Hi [Xxxxxx].  Yes, it sounds like he has a demon on him.  Have you Anointed yourself, your family, the house, and finally him (if he accepts it―if he doesn't want it he may react violently to it―so don't do it in that case.  And Anoint yourself before you do it, if you do it.)? 

    And where he said to you:

"...cause I'm leaving you, holding the bag, to fend for yourself, and your daughter. I am making preparations to do so. It going to take me about 6mos to a year. So get ready!!"

    What a blessing for you that that would be!  Don't discourage him.  If he leaves you, then you are free.  Free indeed.

Deuteronomy 24:1-2
24:1 When a man hath taken a wife, and married her, and it come to pass that she find no favour in his eyes, because he hath found some uncleanness in her: then let him write her a bill of divorcement, and give it in her hand, and send her out of his house.
2 And when she is departed out of his house, she may go and be another man's wife.  KJV

    So let him go (your situation will improve overnight).  And use State Aid to get back on your feet―there is no shame or wrong in that―that is why that Aid is there.  That is why I and others pay our taxes, to help those who need it (not the lazy "minorities" and illegal aliens that are abusing it). 

    Please send me a mailing address, either at home or at work (or a trusted friend), I would like to send you a little gift that will help you in this trying time.  A gift that I am led to send to you. 

    Peace to you in Christ Jesus.

"Neo-Nazi," "Anti-Semitism," "Racism," and other misapplied pejoratives as control and suppression tools

 

A reader writes:

Greetings Sir. I must say I was very glad to have come upon your web site and even bookmarked it. Tonight I was thumbing through some of your questions (can't remember the question) but somehow I ended up reading your statement of faith. At the bottom I read your statement on anti-semitism [WBSG's position on AntiSemitism, so-called]. I found that odd of a "Christian" organization. I read it of course and found so many similarities to what was written there and to the neo-nazis and other anti-Semitic groups. You attempted to make the name "Jew" not a nationality but a characteristic or action. You are teaching racism. This is the same thing hate groups also do. Also I remember a question coming to you about masturbation.  You attempted to intellectualize it.

[quoting WBSG] "Understand this first, there is a great difference between looking at pictures of a nude woman, compared to looking at pictures of graphic sex scenes.  Below we explain some of the many pitfalls with viewing hard-core pornography.  But the viewing of the human nude is not a sin unto itself."

[reader's comment] sin is sin....sin = death....Jesus came to give us life

[quoting WBSG] "However, the viewing of pornography may or may not be a sin depending upon the individual content.  Understand that when you buy, rent, or view pornography you are enabling it.  You become partakers in it."

[reader's comment] From the above statement, that means that our Lord and Savior (who NEVER sinned) could have kicked back and looked at the "non-sin" pornography?

[quoting WBSG (highlighting provided by the reader)] "If a consensual adult allows herself to be photographed in provocative poses, freely of her own will, and then you look at those pictures for mental stimulation you have not sinned (by any Bible verse that I ever saw).  But remember, it is not too becoming for a Christian to become obsessed by these things."

[reader's comment] I can't believe you wrote this. Any new Christian should be able to tell that that statement was from the pit of hell. For what other reason would she be posing and I be looking except for some worldly and/or lustful gain (except it be with your wife or husband). Neither of which helps our Christian walk with the Lord (unless we are lusting after the Lord).

The last time I checked, Gods word is not lukewarm. You are either cold or hot. The majority of what I have read on your web site is outstanding. I don't necessarily agree with your rapture theory but that doesn't take us away from God but when you suggest that it is OK to look at certain porn and not other porn, (published/unpublished or any other nude woman/men in a mag is considered porn, whether in the act or not is porn) you have gone to far. You did not quote any bible verse oking this and I have not read any, therefore let God be true and every man a liar ROM 3:4. I would suggest you be about your fathers business and lead people to Christ and not to feeding the flesh (satan)

Your Brother in Christ,

[X]
 

Answer:

Hello.  I sense your indignation, however unwarranted it may be.  And in keeping with my policy of transparency and intellectual honesty I shall, as you see, post your letter of criticism.  If I were on the other hand to publish all the complimentary letters of, which did contain a question, I would appear self-serving.

    I welcome criticism that is based upon the Scriptures, as I feel that no one is above accountability; nevertheless, sadly, you did not base your criticism on the Bible, but you simply attached unrelated verses to try to force your point (not at all unlike the people that have a problem with masturbation do, as in question #6 on this page above, titled More verse-skewing on masturbation).  I speak of where you write: "sin = death....Jesus came to give us life", and, "Gods word is not lukewarm", and again, "let God be true and every man a liar" etc.  And those Scriptural references that you made are true; however, you have taken them out of context to use them as a sort of "cover all" for your pet "sins" and as a battering ram to strike at me with, and to somehow force your point.  Okay, I get that a lot.  You have strong feelings on a matter, you want to be able to show that God is on your side of the debate, but you cannot find where He says it in His Bible.  I am not angry with you, but I do chasten you to be careful about saying "God says this... or God says that..."—when you can't document it.  Anyway, let's deal with your concerns from your E-mail:

    You said:

"At the bottom I read your statement on anti-semitism. I found that odd of a "Christian" organization. I read it of course and found so many similarities to what was written there and to the neo-nazis and other anti-Semitic groups. You attempted to make the name "Jew" not a nationality but a characteristic or action. You are teaching racism. This is the same thing hate groups also do."

    You are a good little victim, aren't you!  Can't you see how you are being used and that the information that you are being fed is manipulated?  Now I don't know what White Supremacists teach as well as you seem to, but I am not a White Supremacist.  You say that some of the things that I say are sounding like some of the things that they say.  Okay, if you say so; but so what?  I like hamburgers; now, if a (infinitely small in number and exploited, I might add) "White Supremacist" boogey-man goes to McDonalds and enjoys a Big Mac—am I then somehow a White Supremacist?  Hey, even a broken watch is correct twice each day.  Please don't try to smear me or falsely "guilt by association" me.  I know what upsets you, it is the Jewish Question.  Study it, read what the rabbis and other respected Jewish writers say on the matter.  In other words, educate yourself, don't just allow yourself to be muzzled and driven wherever they seek to drive you.  Think for yourself.  Learn, and do not be afraid of the truth. 

     There is an element in International Jewry that purposely tries to slander Christian teachers (particularly White Christian teachers) by making false allegations of "Racism."  Don't aid the enemies of Christ in destroying Christian teachers.  The whole "Racism" thing is a big lie, anyway.  The real Racists aren't White.  Look around you, the other races hate White people more than White people hate anybody.  Yet, all you hear from the Judaic-controlled media is that White people are "inherently racist."  Sorry, but White people let all other races into America and gave them a help up.  They will not be treated so nicely by the darker races when the balance tips and Whites are the minority (which is the Judaic's plan, of course—according to their own writings, I might add). 

    Below is one of those chain type letters that come in the mailbox, sent to dozens of people.  I don't know who sent it to me, but it is true.  Why don't you read it and begin to see what is going on here.  White people are targeted for extinction, yet they are called the Racists.  The International Judaics are trying to strip the White people of any group cohesion, of any sense of unity.  Whites are the only group to be so segregated.  All other racial groups, and even Gays and Lesbians are taught unity, togetherness, stand as one.  Why is that?  Because the Anglo-Saxon, Germanic and kindred peoples are the true descendants of Biblical Israel, and the Turko-Mongoloid Khazar Jews are trying to take Israel's true place.  But since they are so few in number, they use the hoards of (their companion) Gentiles that they have caused to be immigrated into America by their control over immigration policies (and their leashing of Pres. Bush regarding closing the southern border whence 3,500-5,000 illegal's come across everyday, building numbers), and also their bringing of the Black slaves to America. 

    Yes, the Judaics brought the slaves here, it wasn't the White farmers that brought them as you read in the Judaic-controlled school books (see free E-book: Who Brought the Slaves to America? and a video by a Black Professor: VIDEO: The Judaic Role in the Black Slave Trade).  The International Judaics conclude that this world is to be taken from God's rightful heirs (true Israel) and turned over to themselves (Khazars); that the true God of the Bible is to be dethroned by their god satan, as we see prophesied to come to pass in the Tribulation, mentioned in  2nd Thes 2:4, among other places:

2 Thessalonians 2:1-4
2:1 Now we beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ
[the Second Advent], and by our gathering together unto him,
2 That ye be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as from us, as that the day of Christ
[the Second Advent] is at hand.
3 Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except
[until] there come a falling away [apostasy] first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition [antichrist/satan];
4 Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God.  KJV

Pledge to Mexican flag captured on school video
Texas school officials admit they handled 'diversity' program the wrong way

Video Sheds Light on Mexican Pledge Controversy

By Scott Braddock.  Wednesday, October 18, 2006

After parents in Freeport expressed outrage over a Velasco Elementary School assembly last month, KTRH News has obtained a video that answers some questions about what really happened.

The video shows children waving small Mexican flags [SEE VIDEO] and a volunteer reciting the pledge. [SEE VIDEO].

Whether students also recited the Mexican pledge remains a point of contention.

Several parents have told KTRH News that students were saying the pledge, while Brazosport Independent School District officials say that did not happen.

The assembly was meant to teach children about Mexican Independence Day, school district officials said. The holiday is celebrated Sept. 16 to mark the day Mexico won independence from Spain.

Sam Williams, the school's longtime principal, has said, in hindsight, he would have done things “differently.” He has also apologized to anyone who may have been offended.

“As stated previously, and again verified with the campus administration this morning (Tuesday), the students did not say the Mexican pledge," district spokesman Stuart Dornburg said.

KTRH News obtained the video by requesting it from the Brazosport Independent School District under Texas open records laws.

The father of a third-grader at Velasco, who wished to remain anonymous, said Tuesday that some students surrounding him at the assembly were saying the pledge. “I was telling them you don't have to stand for the pledge of allegiance to the Mexican flag," he said. He noted that only some students — not all — were reciting the pledge.

"That's treason ... you're not supposed to say the pledge of allegiance to any flag other than the American and Texas flags," the father added. "It broke my heart to see the kids doing that.”

    That is the whole purpose behind this Racism charade.  To use the darker races to suppress and extinguish the White true Israel peoples.  So is there Racism and genocide coming?  Yes, immediately preceding the Tribulation; but the White people are set to be the victims, not the offenders.  See how Blacks are being trained (brainwashed) into violence from a very young age, and now maybe you can understand the reason behind the violent Gangster Rap Music that these unfortunates are reared upon from their very early teens and before: See the Video (caution, graphic language [Blacks indiscriminately using the word "Nigger" while training the next generation of social misfits; on your dime, I might add])  Fight video from MySpace.  These children are being trained (programmed) to kill (and rape) you when the Race Riots begin before Martial Law in America.  just like they did in the L.A. "Rodney King" Riots (search for videos on that for a stunning eye-opener!)

    And not because they are White skinned is it that International Jewry has targeted Caucasians to be slaughtered by proxies, but because (many) of them are the true descendants of Israel; that is to say of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob.  In America the International Judaics are using the Blacks and the Hispanics to accomplish this, with great success; in Europe the International Judaics, once again by their control of immigration policies, are using the Muslims from third-world hell-holes to do it.  It is a plan, and it is global—wherever God's chosen (true) Israel are to be found, you will find the hand of the International Judaics upon them.  And what a genius plan indeed!  However diabolical and satanic inspired it is.  See box at right for another  glaring example continuance of the International Judaic's "diversity agenda."

    E-mail received:

How many are actually paying attention to this?

There are African Americans, Mexican Americans, Asian Americans, Arab Americans, Native Americans, etc. And then there are just Americans.

You pass me on the street and sneer in my direction. You call me "Whiteboy," "Cracker," "Honkey," "Whitey," "Caveman" and that's OK.

But when I call you, Nigger, Kike, Towelhead, Sand-nigger, Camel Jockey, Beaner, Gook, or Chink you call me a racist.

You say that whites commit a lot of violence against you, so why are the ghettos the most dangerous places to live?

You have the United Negro College Fund.
You have Martin Luther King Day.
You have Black History Month.
You have Cesar Chavez Day.
You have Yom Hashoah
You have Ma'uled Al-Nabi
You have the NAACP.
You have BET.

If we had WET (White Entertainment Television) we'd be racists.
If we had a White Pride Day you would call us racists.
If we had White History Month, we'd be racists.
If we had any organization for only whites to "advance" our lives, we'd be racists.

We have a Hispanic Chamber of Commerce, a Black Chamber of Commerce, and then we just have the plain Chamber of Commerce. Wonder who pays for that?

If we had a college fund that only gave white students scholarships, you know we'd be racists. There are over 60 openly proclaimed Black Colleges in the US, yet if there were "White Colleges" that would be a racist college.

In the Million Man March, you believed that you were marching for your race and rights. If we marched for our race and rights, you would call us racists.

You are proud to be black, brown, yellow and orange, and you're not afraid to announce it. But when we announce our white pride, you call us racists.

You rob us, carjack us, and shoot at us. But, when a white police officer shoots a black gang member or beats up a black drug-dealer running from the law and posing a threat to society, you call him a racist.

I am proud. But, you call me a racist.

Why is it that only whites can be racists?

    Moving on...

    You said:

"Also I remember a question coming to you about masturbation.  You attempted to intellectualize it."

    No, I answered it by Scripture, which you apparently aren't happy with.  See: Question six on this page (More verse-skewing on masturbation) and also: Masturbation, does the Bible speak against it?

    You quote me (highlighting added here by me):

"[quoting WBSG] "Understand this first, there is a great difference between looking at pictures of a nude woman, compared to looking at pictures of graphic sex scenes.  Below we explain some of the many pitfalls with viewing hard-core pornographyBut the viewing of the human nude is not a sin unto itself."

to which you add the comment:

"sin is sin....sin = death....Jesus came to give us life"

    Yes, sin = death, and yes Jesus came to give us life; but that does not mean that looking a nude humans is a sin.  You jump to the conclusion that "nude = sin" and then you publish verses that in no way even speak of the matter.  You have not established Scripturally that nudes are a sin, yet you write chastisement of me as though you have established the fact that men enjoying the image of the human nude female is a sin.  This is a form of bondage used by the clergy for millennia.

    And let me clarify that I don't like using the term "pornography" because it is loaded with perverted things other than nakedness.  So, I perhaps left an opening for criticism by inadvisably using that broad and undefined term.  I would rather that I stuck with the term "human nude."  But I used a common term and must live with it now.  It is not hard to misplace a word when you write as many of them as I do.  May I point out that in the Q&A that you are referring to that I was careful to point out that viewing sinful acts (homosexuality, lesbianism, adultery, etc.) is a sin because you become an enabler of the manufacture of those type videos?  

You quote me:

"[quoting WBSG] "However, the viewing of pornography may or may not be a sin depending upon the individual content.  Understand that when you buy, rent, or view pornography you are enabling it.  You become partakers in it."

to which you add the disrespectful commentary:

"From the above statement, that means that our Lord and Savior (who NEVER sinned) could have kicked back and looked at the "non-sin" pornography?"

    It is statements like your above that make me suspicious about your true intentions here.  Perhaps I misunderstand your methodology, but how a Christian can write something like that, even in jest, is beyond me.  But you wrote it, and you can take it up with Him.  And I suppose that one man's blasphemy is another man's jest.

You said:

"The majority of what I have read on your web site is outstanding. I don't necessarily agree with your rapture theory"

    You mean that you don't like my Scriptural refutation of the so-called Rapture.  I have a larger work on the matter that you may find profitable:  The Rapture Theory; What Does God's Word Say About It? 

    I hope that you aren't just a disgruntled Rapturist lashing out at me any way you can.

    You said:

"published/unpublished or any other nude woman/men in a mag is considered porn, whether in the act or not is porn) you have gone to far. You did not quote any bible verse oking this and I have not read any, therefore let God be true and every man a liar ROM 3:4. I would suggest you be about your fathers business and lead people to Christ and not to feeding the flesh (satan)"

    I am always willing to agree to disagree with a Christian fellow on some certain matter.  Perhaps this is one where we have to part agreement on.  You ask for scripture about nude pictures (Like I said earlier, I am not comfortable with the term pornography in this context).  Well, that might be a little difficult as there were no Polaroid cameras back then.  But King David looked upon a naked woman and enjoyed what he saw and was not admonished for that.  Where David was wrong was that the woman turned out to be married, he then committed adultery with her, and then arraigned to have her husband killed so that he could marry her.  God punished David for that.  When David found out that the woman was married he should have turned his eyes away from her, and most certainly shouldn't have had sex with her, not to mention murdering her husband by deceit.

2 Samuel 11:2-4
2 And it came to pass in an eveningtide, that David arose from off his bed, and walked upon the roof of the king's house: and from the roof he saw a woman washing herself; and the woman was very beautiful to look upon.
3 And David sent and inquired after the woman. And one said, Is not this Bath-sheba, the daughter of Eliam, the wife of Uriah the Hittite?
4 And David sent messengers, and took her; and she came in unto him, and he lay with her; for she was purified from her uncleanness
[a bathing ritual done after her menstruation cycle completes; i.e., she was naked when David saw her washing herself in verse two above]: and she returned unto her house.  KJV

God tells David what he did wrong; notice that there is no mention of him viewing the naked female as being a sin:

2 Samuel 11:26-12:14
26 And when the wife of Uriah heard that Uriah her husband was dead, she mourned for her husband.
27 And when the mourning was past, David sent and fetched her to his house, and she became his wife, and bare him a son. But the thing that David had done displeased the LORD.  KJV

2 Samuel 12

12:1 And the LORD sent Nathan unto David. And he came unto him, and said unto him, There were two men in one city; the one rich, and the other poor.
2 The rich man had exceeding many flocks and herds:
3 But the poor man had nothing, save one little ewe lamb, which he had bought and nourished up: and it grew up together with him, and with his children; it did eat of his own meat, and drank of his own cup, and lay in his bosom, and was unto him as a daughter.
4 And there came a traveller unto the rich man, and he spared to take of his own flock and of his own herd, to dress for the wayfaring man that was come unto him; but took the poor man's lamb, and dressed it for the man that was come to him.
5 And David's anger was greatly kindled against the man; and he said to Nathan, As the LORD liveth, the man that hath done this thing shall surely die:
6 And he shall restore the lamb fourfold, because he did this thing, and because he had no pity.
7 And Nathan said to David, Thou art the man. Thus saith the LORD God of Israel, I anointed thee king over Israel, and I delivered thee out of the hand of Saul;
8 And I gave thee thy master's house, and thy master's wives into thy bosom, and gave thee the house of Israel and of Judah; and if that had been too little, I would moreover have given unto thee such and such things.
9 Wherefore hast thou despised the commandment of the LORD, to do evil in his sight? thou hast killed Uriah the Hittite with the sword, and hast taken his wife to be thy wife, and hast slain him with the sword of the children of Ammon.
10 Now therefore
[i.e., because of that sin] the sword shall never depart from thine house; because thou hast despised me, and hast taken the wife of Uriah the Hittite to be thy wife.
11 Thus saith the LORD, Behold, I will raise up evil against thee out of thine own house, and I will take thy wives before thine eyes, and give them unto thy neighbour, and he shall lie with thy wives in the sight of this sun.
12 For thou didst it secretly: but I will do this thing before all Israel, and before the sun.
13 And David said unto Nathan, I have sinned against the LORD. And Nathan said unto David, The LORD also hath put away thy sin; thou shalt not die.
14 Howbeit, because by this deed thou hast given great occasion to the enemies of the LORD to blaspheme, the child also that is born unto thee shall surely die.  KJV

    Many times in the Bible men looked upon the women and admired their beauty, and they were not chastened for it.  Surely you don't think that they were simply admiring the way that their hair flowed around their faces and down their shoulders?  Let's be mature, please.

Proverbs 11:22-23
22 As a jewel of gold in a swine's snout, so is a fair woman which is without discretion.
23 The desire of the righteous is only good: but the expectation of the wicked is wrath.  KJV

    Listen, I am no fan of pornography because it victimizes the women and turns the men who view it into perverts sometimes.  It also destroys families sometimes.  Balance this answer and you won't be so upset.  I said that viewing the naked female body is not a sin.  It's all downhill from there, though, because it leads to temptation.  It is the acting upon temptation that becomes the sin.

Peace to you in Christ Jesus.

Back to list of questions at top of page


 

| Back To Top |

Head knowledge/Heart knowledge; and, different ministry specializations

 

Hello.  This Q&A is in a little different format.  In it we shall present feedback letters from two long-time WBSG members regarding the query of a third reader.  First let's all get on the same page.  Here is what happened:

    In the last mailing (to the mailing list) I announced the posting of some new materials on the Website, one of those materials was a Q&A from a reader.  In it, a woman wrote in with some concerns (see: Ann Coulter and the Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion).  She centered her E-mail around Ann Coulter's new book (Godless...), which correctly observes that the Liberal's agenda is nothing less than dethroning God.  We shall not move any further into that premise here in this Q&A as it is off-topic.  There is however a deeper underlying issue that I may have been remiss in not dealing with in more detail for the reader that asked the original question about Ann Coulter's book.  Two other readers observed that this original reader was being pained by something, and that perhaps I did not address it directly or completely enough.  In retrospect I believe that they are correct in that assessment.  And I thank them for taking the time, and for caring enough, to step in and speak up for another reader.  That is why I so value feedback here at WBSG, and it is why I post mail that is both complimentary as well as critical (though these two readers were in no way being critical—they were just trying to step in and add a little help to a Christian fellow (the original reader who wrote the Q&A about Ann Coulter).

    In that original Q&A the woman, among other things, wrote:

"...My point - I'm so frustrated in my search for the truth.  I'm hanging on by faith, but at some point do you need to put on blinders to the Information World to maintain your faith? 

I can see similarities between Ann Coulter's writings/beliefs and the Watchmen website - but the complete reversal of the Protocols - well, it gives me a stomachache.  There are only so many hours in the day to research (as I'm sure you well know!!); there are only so many hours to read the Bible; there are only so many prayers I can pray in a day (prayers for strength and guidance); there are only so many theories, beliefs, truths I can take in before I go on overload.

I feel weak because I can't latch on to MY beliefs and fend off all things that would become extraneous [irrelevant, not important] were I not so weak.  Perhaps I'm trying too hard to combine faith and knowledge (investigation). ..."

  I did sense that there was a problem here, evident by my below comment to her in the answer segment of that Q&A,; however, It appears that I dropped the ball by not taking it deeper.  To her above comments and concerns I simply replied:

"Before we move to the Protocols, I must point out something.  You seem to be equating faith in Jesus with believing the conspiracy theories.  You can't do that.  They are separate entities.  Belief upon Jesus is the way to life.  Believing the "conspiracy theories" makes you aware of what is happening currently. 

Please don't confuse the two."

    Could I have done more work on this one for the reader?  Yes, I now know that I could and should have.  This present writing is intended to correct that blunder, or, if one wishes to be more merciful, this current writing is intended to correct that oversight on my part.  And correct it I shall, but first let's continue to lay the groundwork so that others who are not familiar with this situation may also follow along and know what we are speaking of here. After all, WBSG (Watchmen Bible Study Group) Q&A section was always intended to help others, not just the original person writing-in the question.  Which is why when I answer a question on the Website one can sense that I am writing to more than just the person who asked the original question.  Anyway...moving forward: 

    Now we shall see the two E-mails from two different readers who feel the pain of the original reader and move to help her out:

A reader writes:

Hi Nick,

Me again from down-under.... Just been reading your latest updates and wish to say thanks heaps for your efforts.

Just reading the trend of a lot of folk, including me, to be quite concerned with knowledge...I know its important to know the truth 'et al', .......but a note to the beginner.....If it is thought that this knowledge will 'save ones soul' or that by learning more, one is getting closer to God, Please be aware. Satan knows more of this than anyone. satan is an absolute expert on the word of God, having committed to memory every nuance and translation of every word of every religion. By becoming a learned scholar in the wording and translation of scripture, you will only ever approach being as expert as satan himself. Being saved in the blood and sacrifice of Jesus is something else altogether. Even folk who are not too bright, having difficulty in understanding, can accept the gift of Jesus Christ and be saved simply be calling on the name of the Lord.

Real Christianity is the only 'religious following' where this is true. Islam demands years of study and learning as does Judaism (Pharisaism). Buddhism demands sacrifice and dedication, The Hindu's all........

So although we have to have the knowledge to discern, and this is one of the gifts of the Holy Spirit, and we need to be able to help others understand when there are questions to be answered, We also have to get back to basics as often as possible just to thank God for the the battle fought and won for us through Jesus our Lord. 

I do not know what my response will be at the time when things start to get hot in the trib. [Tribulation] sense but am confident of my own resourcefulness. The Spirit will guide me and mine as always. 

I am a very regular reader on your site and wish you continued power and blessings in Jesus Holy name.

Please keep up the good work. I have been to many many sites and crossed them of my list one at a time because I could not see the integrity that I see with yours. 

Regards and God bless you and all yours.......[xxxxx]


    To which, pressed for time (time is my enemy) I simply and shortly replied:

Hello.  Glad to hear from you.  And thank you very much for the blessings and the comments.  Talk to you later.

Peace to you in Christ Jesus.

    Perhaps due to my shortness of answer the reader went back and re-read her above E-mail that she had sent to me.  I think that she felt that she may have inadvertently offended me in some way.  Then,

The same above reader writes back adding:

Hi Nick, Upon re-reading the email I sent, It may sound as though I am critical of the study and your work.....certainly not. My point is that although the study and understanding of the word of God is important, along with critical discussion, we need to keep in touch with our Lord too.  That's a thing that satan cannot accomplish.......

God bless....[Xxxxx]


   
That same day another reader send the below message.  May I point out that both of these readers are long-time members (readers) of WBSG, and that discussions with both of them have served as the basis for several of the Q&As on the Website).  The second reader writes:

A (second) reader writes:

Nick,

One of the readers wrote:

[Quoting the original reader] "I feel weak because I can't latch
on to MY beliefs and fend off all things that would become
extraneous were I not so weak.  Perhaps I'm trying too hard
to combine faith and knowledge (investigation)"

I feel sorry for her and I completely understand how
she feels. But then I remember what Jesus said in
Matthew 18:3, Mark 10:15 and Luke 18:17 where He told
us that we must receive the Kingdom of God as "a
little child".

Among other things, I understand that as a warning not
to let our theology get too obtuse and to stop beating
our brains out about it. It should be simple enough so
that we can easily explain it to a little child and
have them understand it. And we should all go back
from time to time and reread the parts where Jesus
said to let God do the worrying.

[Xxxxx]

Answer:

    Truth!  What both of those two readers wrote was the truth.  And I hope that the original reader who wrote in the original Q&A will see this when it is posted (please drop me a note, original reader, telling me that you did see it, if you do).  I cannot send her an E-mail telling her that her answer has been expanded and added-to because when I post these on the Website I strip them of all identifiers and remove the E-mail addresses of the reader writing-in.  [WBSG NOTE: She did subsequently see this and wrote me later to tell me so.  That letter of hers is at the very bottom of this Q&A.]

    Okay, now let's do what I wish I had done in the original.  Let us explain the difference between being saved and being aware of the drive of the enemy.

    Regarding "being aware of the drive of the enemy" we shall cover that momentarily.  But "being saved" is simply (and completely) defined by Jesus Christ Himself in the below Scripture.  The Scripture is complete and can stand alone anytime, and it is the most known and quoted verse in the Christian Bible.  As an aside, many times at a football game on television you will see someone in the stands raise a small sign up above their heads when a field goal is being kicked and they are sure that they are in the cameras' view.  That sign usually says, simply, "John 3:16".  The person(s) doing that are trying to draw the world's attention to the below Scripture:

John 3:16-18
16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
17 For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.
18 He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.  KJV

    Now, there are many different types of ministries, some are purely evangelistic (reaching the lost with Gospel of Jesus Christ), and some are deeper teachings (diving deeper into limitless wisdom and great things contained in God's Bible.  And then there are those ministries, however few they are, that look into things regarding the endtimes and how what the Bible prophesies to come to happen aligns with what is currently happening in our day.  There are many other ministry missions, which would take a small book to address; but the above is a good cross section.

    All Christian ministries should do some evangelical work, as the Scripture is quite clear on the preeminence of reaching unbelievers with the Word of God.  We see this in the below Scripture, which Bible scholars refer to as "The Great Commission."  These are some of the last instructions to the church that Jesus gave before he ascended back to the Father God.  The below is Jesus' address to the apostles after that He had risen from the dead, but before He had ascended back to God (in Acts 1:1-12):

Mark 16:14-16
14 Afterward he
[Jesus] appeared unto the eleven as they sat at meat, and upbraided them with their unbelief and hardness of heart, because they believed not them which had seen him after he was risen.
15 And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature.
16 He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believeth not shall be damned.  KJV

    As a side note, Jesus in verse 16 is quite clear that a man must believe upon Jesus Christ to be saved.  Notwithstanding the murmurings of the modern churches which are beginning to leaven-in seeds of doubt by their ecumenism (getting along with, in joint "worship") with other religions.  As a means to further their evil goals, these so-called ecumenical ministries will try to tell you that the above verse "doesn't belong in the Bible" (that is ever their way—to cut Scriptures out of the Bible that won't support antichrist, or which establish Jesus Christ alone as the means of salvation).  But if I continue on here any further then I will be moving away from evangelization—and towards "being aware of the drive of the enemy", which I feel is the main mission of this (WBSG) Internet ministry.  Nevertheless, let's stay on topic here a little longer.  And may I offer a defense to the above Scripture belonging in the Bible.  What a shame that a Christian has to offer defenses to other "Christians" regarding not cutting-out Scriptures from the Bible.  Anyway, here is a link which proves that the above verse "belongs in the Bible," as though any REAL Christian would need it defended.  But I don't speak of "real" Christians, I speak of the new Age ones of today (many of them, anyway).  See our: The Last Twelve Verses of the Gospel of Mark.

    I firmly believe in the importance of evangelization, I feel that it is every Christian's duty.  I spread the Word to as many that I can in my daily life.  How successful I am at that I cannot know.  But my main body of work is "being aware of the drive of the enemy."  It is there where lays my labor of love, it is there that I feel that I am guided to go.  All ministries can not focus on everything all at once, there is too much work in the field for us all to harness the same plough.  In short, you can't do everything sufficiently, but you can do a few things very well.  And you may well be able to do one thing marvelously.  It's all about focus.  It takes much time to one thing well, and it is difficult to do even a few things satisfactorily, but for us it is impossible to do all things the best.  Let me give you an analogy:

    It's like house building;  A carpenter has a trade, a plumber has his trade, an electrician, the concrete man, etc.  Now, a plumber can build a shed for your lawnmower, and a carpenter can fix a leaky sink; but, a carpenter can build you a magnificent cabinet and an electrician can do things that most men wouldn't dare try to even touch.  It's called specialization, a man picks a trade and devotes his life's work to fine-tuning it, to bring his level of work to the very top.  So too do we Christian teachers also tend to compartmentalize, we all have a different place in the body of Christ, we all have a different mission for our Lord Jesus Christ.  The Lord guides them all and then puts them all together forming the bigger picture—the completed work.  Each of you have a mission for your Lord Jesus Christ, and someday we all find out what that is.  Patience is in order.

  Now, an evangelist may not know as much about the complexities of the Scriptures as, say, a gifted Bible teacher; however, the evangelist has a gift of reaching the lost.  He can touch hearts with the Gospel of Jesus Christ and convert the unbelieving into good solid Christians who actually and truly feel the power of the Holy Spirit in their own hearts.  This is a gift and a worthy ministry.  Others don't seem to do so well with new people, some just don't have the success at converting the unbelievers as do gifted evangelists.  And conversely, a gifted evangelist may not be able to answer difficult Bible questions, but at the same time lead more men to Christ than any "Bible scholar" ever has.  So we see that there are different administrations.  Or, let's let the Holy Spirit tell us what saith God on this matter; you don't need my words on it, here is God's:

1 Corinthians 12:3-31
3 Wherefore I give you to understand, that no man speaking by the Spirit of God calleth Jesus accursed: and that no man can say that Jesus is the Lord, but by the Holy Ghost.
4 Now there are diversities of gifts, but the same Spirit.
5 And there are differences of administrations , but the same Lord.
6 And there are diversities of operations, but it is the same God which worketh all in all.
7 But the manifestation of the Spirit is given to every man to profit withal.
8 For to one is given by the Spirit the word of wisdom; to another the word of knowledge by the same Spirit;
9 To another faith by the same Spirit; to another the gifts of healing by the same Spirit;
10 To another the working of miracles; to another prophecy; to another discerning of spirits; to another divers kinds of tongues; to another the interpretation of tongues:
11 But all these worketh that one and the selfsame Spirit, dividing to every man severally as he will.
12 For as the body is one, and hath many members, and all the members of that one body, being many, are one body: so also is Christ.
13 For by one Spirit are we all baptized into one body, whether we be Jews or Gentiles, whether we be bond or free; and have been all made to drink into one Spirit.
14 For the body is not one member, but many.
15 If the foot shall say, Because I am not the hand, I am not of the body; is it therefore not of the body?
16 And if the ear shall say, Because I am not the eye, I am not of the body; is it therefore not of the body?
17 If the whole body were an eye, where were the hearing? If the whole were hearing, where were the smelling?
18 But now hath God set the members every one of them in the body, as it hath pleased him.
19 And if they were all one member, where were the body?
20 But now are they many members, yet but one body.
21 And the eye cannot say unto the hand, I have no need of thee: nor again the head to the feet, I have no need of you.
22 Nay, much more those members of the body, which seem to be more feeble, are necessary:
23 And those members of the body, which we think to be less honourable, upon these we bestow more abundant honour; and our uncomely parts have more abundant comeliness.
24 For our comely parts have no need: but God hath tempered the body together, having given more abundant honour to that part which lacked:
25 That there should be no schism in the body; but that the members should have the same care one for another.
26 And whether one member suffer, all the members suffer with it; or one member be honoured, all the members rejoice with it.
27 Now ye are the body of Christ, and members in particular
[distinct, different].
28 And God hath set some in the church, first apostles, secondarily prophets, thirdly teachers, after that miracles, then gifts of healings, helps, governments, diversities of tongues.
29 Are all apostles? are all prophets? are all teachers? are all workers of miracles?
30 Have all the gifts of healing? do all speak with tongues? do all interpret?
31 But covet earnestly the best gifts: and yet shew I unto you a more excellent way.  KJV

    So we see that we do not all have the same gifts of the Holy Spirit, we do not all have the same duties, we do not all do the same things well.  In other words, while we all worship and serve the same Lord Jesus Christ, we all have individual duties and abilities that God has elected to grace us with.

    Regarding evangelization:  I personally feel that this is not my strong point.  I really do not feel that I am as effective at converting the lost to Jesus Christ as I would like to be.  I accept that to be my liability.  I can accept the fact that there are other men (and women) who have far greater success in reaching the lost and the unbeliever.  I also know that it is God who is behind every good work of every good Christian.  Nevertheless, I have included a section on this Website devoted solely to the new Christian or the person who isn't yet sure of Christianity.  It is located at: Newer students; and on that page you will find among other studies, the below several:

  • Forgiveness  It comes only from God through Jesus Christ, how can we find it? What does God's Word, the Bible say about it?

  • Faith and Belief  Provides documented proof as to the validity of the Holy Scriptures in the Bible. An excellent study to help establish and strengthen anyone's faith! A recommended "first" study, as well as an excellent witnessing tool.

  • When a Christian takes a life (kills)  Comfort and understanding from God's Word to those who may have. This study covers many controversial topics such as: Murder, involuntary manslaughter, killing in war, capitol punishment, abortion. . . . You have heard what man says about these things, now learn what God's Word, The Bible, says!

  • Getting Saved, What Does It Mean And How Can I Be? Understand what the term 'being saved' means. We've all hear it but what does it mean exactly? What does our Heavenly Father say we have to do to attain everlasting life? It isn't supposed to be a mystery!  God laid it all out for us so we could know. Learn from God's Written Word - The Bible - what God says to us about salvation and the eternity with Him in Heaven.

  • Why I Believe! One Christian shares his story: A beautiful story that documents the love that our Heavenly Father has for us, and answers the question: "Why do I believe that Jesus Christ of Nazareth was the Messiah promised and sent from God to save the world from it's sins and flesh nature?"

    Let that me my apology for my shortcoming in evangelization, and also to serve as a call upon all those of you who are gifted with the patience and kindheartedness to turn men's hearts to Christ—that you continue and increase your work for our Lord in reaching the lost before it is too late for them.  Now let us move on to the problem at hand, as illustrated by the original reader's Q&A.  This area, I believe, I am qualified to speak on.

    Most churches, and perhaps I am too hard on some of them, I don't know; but most churches are not warning the people.  Oh yes, they worship Jesus Christ—and that is so very most important, I know―however, the people of Christ must be warned as to what is coming upon them.  To not warn them is to, in effect, leave them vulnerable to the assault.  Forewarned is forearmed in this instance, I perceive.  Scripture speaks of this administration, and the great responsibility attached to it:

Ezekiel 33:2-6
2 Son of man, speak to the children of thy people, and say unto them, When I bring the sword upon a land, if the people of the land take a man of their coasts, and set him for their watchman:
3 If when he seeth the sword come upon the land, he blow the trumpet, and warn the people;
4 Then whosoever heareth the sound of the trumpet, and taketh not warning; if the sword come, and take him away, his blood shall be upon his own head.
5 He heard the sound of the trumpet, and took not warning; his blood shall be upon him. But he that taketh warning shall deliver his soul.
6 But if the watchman see the sword come, and blow not the trumpet, and the people be not warned; if the sword come, and take any person from among them, he is taken away in his iniquity; but his blood will I require at the watchman's hand.  KJV

    Now, the watchmen post is a post of many.  This Website is called Watchmen Bible Study Group, not WatchmAn, in other words, we are many.  I personally do not claim to be any special somebody, I do claim however to be a member of the body of Christ, who along with others for whatever reason do happen to see that sword coming.  I am not a special person nor do I claim to be any kind of "big somebody."  I just wanted to clear the air on that; though, to date, none has accused me of this.  But they shall, they will make that false accusation against me someday.  "They" have learned that the best way to destroy a message is to destroy the one carrying it.  It's called a ad hominem argument (ad hominem is a Latin phrase meaning "against the man"), whereby they destroy everything a man said by exposing or fabricating some misstep or misdeed in that man's life.  So what "they" do, and which you have seen often employed, but may have not have noticed it for what it is, is that they destroy a message by destroying the credibility of the one who is carrying it.  And to this, "they" will even someday lie and say, "See, this man calls himself the messenger of God."  No, I did not say that of myself; I believe that all Christians everywhere are to be messengers of God and Christ Jesus' good tidings and ominous warnings as contained in the Holy Writ, God's Bible.  I just point out these tactics because you will see them in the endtimes, they were used against Pastor Murray some time ago, and many of you will even have them used against yourselves.  And why not, they even used them against our Lord Jesus Christ, how much more so then shall they use them on His followers?

Matthew 26:59-61
59 Now the chief priests, and elders, and all the council, sought false witness against Jesus, to put him to death;
60 But found none: yea, though many false witnesses came, yet found they none. At the last came two false witnesses,
61 And said, This fellow said, I am able to destroy the temple of God, and to build it in three days.  KJV

    Those were the words of the false witnesses designed to make Jesus look like a blasphemer for saying, so they say, that Jesus said the He would destroy the Temple of God and build another.  Therefore anything that this Jesus said had to be written-off as merely the words of a blasphemer and enemy of God—so the Jews thought, that is.  However, below is what Jesus really said:

John 2:19-21
19 Jesus answered and said unto them, Destroy this temple, and in three days I will raise it up.
20 Then said the Jews, Forty and six years was this temple in building, and wilt thou rear it up in three days?
21 But he spake of the temple of his body.  KJV

    My point is that they twisted His words to discredit Him, thereby enabling an ad hominem argument against everything that this Man taught.  Christ Himself warned us that as they had done to Him they too shall do to us:

John 15:16-27
16 Ye have not chosen me, but I have chosen you, and ordained you, that ye should go and bring forth fruit, and that your fruit should remain: that whatsoever ye shall ask of the Father in my name, he may give it you.
17 These things I command you, that ye love one another.
18 If the world hate you, ye know that it hated me before it hated you.
19 If ye were of the world, the world would love his own: but because ye are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hateth you.
20 Remember the word that I said unto you, The servant is not greater than his lord. If they have persecuted me, they will also persecute you; if they have kept my saying, they will keep yours also.
21 But all these things will they do unto you for my name's sake, because they know not him that sent me.
22 If I had not come and spoken unto them, they had not had sin: but now they have no cloke for their sin.
23 He that hateth me hateth my Father also.
24 If I had not done among them the works which none other man did, they had not had sin: but now have they both seen and hated both me and my Father.
25 But this cometh to pass, that the word might be fulfilled that is written in their law, They hated me without a cause.
26 But when the Comforter is come, whom I will send unto you from the Father, even the Spirit of truth, which proceedeth from the Father, he shall testify of me:
27 And ye also shall bear witness, because ye have been with me from the beginning.  KJV

    I just want that you are prepared for it and to be able to identify the tactic when it is employed against you and other Christians.

Peace to you in Christ Jesus.

The original reader writes back:

[the "Ann Coulter" question] was asked by me.  I am so appreciative of all three of you and your insights.  Sometimes knowledge is knowledge and sometimes it becomes a maze of mirrors; i.e., a trap.

Another of the letters in this last set caught my eye and addresses this issue - the attack on Paul.  Your wonderful answer mentions that those who would attack the credibility of Paul are either 1) Jews or 2) converts to Judaism.  I fall into neither category, but in my early years, in an attempt to pull away from the faith with which I was raised, I latched on to the words of smug, pseudo-intellectuals (like the individual who sent the letter to you) who claim that since Paul was/is not credible, then the Bible must be nothing more than a collection of the oral traditions/myths of a band of nomadic peoples (the Israelites). 

These pseudo-intellectuals to whom I refer were primarily my college professors.  I walked straight into the trap that is the double-edged sword of higher education.  Not all of them were Jews; nor am I, but I temporarily bought it - because I wanted to.  I was looking for the (seductive) argument that would allow me to live without regard for eventual judgment.  And the intellectuals with all that "knowledge," and rhetoric were right there to take me in hand. 

Now, I understand that there is an unseen "power," or driving force, behind our colleges and universities that promotes the above-mentioned rhetoric, but I am speaking about the front-men, the college professors who are not knowingly carrying out the will of the International Judaics.  I became one of them for a time.  When I think about the things I said and hinted at to the students in my classes - I shudder. And I did it all with the smugness of intellectual pursuit, of "teaching the students to think." 

You wrote, "There is much more at stake here than Paul's good name; for, to deny some books of the Bible (not to mention over two-thirds of them!!!) is to cast doubt upon them all, and to do that is to cast doubt on the ultimate Author of them all—The Lord God by His Holy Spirit.  God forbid!" 

Yes indeed, God forbid!  And by God's grace I stepped back from the intellectualization of my soul - even still, however, from time to time I find myself focused on the "head of the pin:" the question, instead of the Answer.  I am not new to Christianity, The Bible, God; I am new to actually living my beliefs, admitting my beliefs, hence my frustration with the information age and the ultimate heaviness of thinking too much and surrendering too little. 

Again, thanks to all three of you for reminding me of the peacefulness and lightness of surrender to God, a questionless-state! 

[Xxxxxxx]
 

Answer:

Thank you for writing back.  And thank you for sharing your testimony.  May the Lord Jesus Christ bless you.

    Peace to you in Christ Jesus.
