Jesus Christ To The Religious Left: Why Do You Call Me Lord Lord And Do Not Do What I Say? Luke 6:46

Posted by Job on June 15, 2007

Please click www.liveprayer.com/signup.htm to sign up to receive this devotional in your email. *Personal note: This is one of the times when Pastor Keller’s views do not line up with my own, but Keller is still a Bible – based preacher so there is nothing wrong with providing this devotional.

“Why do you call me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ and do not do what I say?”  Luke 6:46

The “religious left.”  In case you have been sleeping, there is a new group
of people in our nation who call themselves the “religious left.” This is a relatively new term so you may not be familiar with it.  That is why I felt it was so critical to take the time today to insure you not only understood what it means, but who actually makes up this new group of people. Forty years ago, this group didn’t even exist. They have actually evolved and
grown tremendously over the past decade.

The “religious left” is made up of people who identify themselves as
Christians and hold strong religious beliefs as well as sharing left-wing
ideals.  Obviously, this group has risen up in opposition to those who have
been tagged the “religious right” or the “Christian right.”  The “Christian
right” is that group of Bible-believing Christians who are politically
active and seek to elect to office those candidates who hold to Biblical
values on the key spiritual issues of our day that are also political
issues.

These would be issues like abortion and life related matters, gay marriage,
family issues, the proliferation of the pornography industry, and the drive
to remove God from the public square.  Those in the “religious left”
actually take an anti-Biblical position on these issues and are also heavily
involved in the ecumenical movement, environmental issues, opposing war for
any reason, world hunger, and social issues like healthcare, welfare, and
education.

There is nothing wrong with pursing these noble social issues, Believers
should be more involved on those fronts.  The problem with this group is
their anti-Biblical position on the key spiritual issues of our day and
their involvement in these ecumenical movements that require you to set
aside the Absolute Truths of the Bible.

I watched with interest a last week as CNN carried a special program about
faith with the leading Democratic Candidates who are vying for their parties
nomination in the 2008 Presidential election.  Each one dealt with various
faith-related issues in the context of their own personal faith.  I watched
in amazement as each one talked about how important their faith was to them,
how it guided them, how it gave them strength, and went out of their way to
position themselves as people of great faith.

Like my dear mother used to tell me, talk is cheap.  I refuse to try and
judge their heart, that is something only God can and will do.  However, I
have every right to judge them on their actions in accordance with God’s
Word.  How can you say you are a person of faith, yet vote to support the
legalized slaughter of over 4,000 innocent babies every day?  How can you
say you are a person of faith, yet vote to redefine God’s Holy Institution
of Marriage?  How can you say you are a person of faith, yet support special
rights for people who have chosen to engage in perverted sex acts God calls
an abomination, including their ability to adopt children into their deviant
lifestyle?

I guess the real question becomes, what is their faith really in?  It is
inconsistent to say you are person of faith yet continually take a stand in
complete opposition to God’s Word.  Jesus said that if you love Me, you will
obey Me.  That means His Word.  Of course, those in the “religious left” has
been born out of the liberal “churches” of our day who make a mockery of
Christ as they operate in open rebellion to the Truth of the Bible while
claiming to be followers of Christ.

They support the legalized slaughter of babies, redefining marriage to
include men with men and women with women, perverting the family by brining
children into homes with homosexual parents, and embrace ecumenical
fellowships with all of the cults and false religions of the world.  They
deny the inspiration and inerrancy of the Bible, have rejected God’s Word
for the Absolute Truth it represents, and have bought into the lie of the
world that there are “many roads that lead to God.”  These are the people
who make up the “religious left!”

I love you and care about you so much.  It is beyond me how a person can
consider themselves a Christian, which means they are a follower of Christ
and automatically a follower of His Word, yet take a public position in
complete opposition to that Word.  You better wake up, since this is the
largest growing segment of Christendom, this apostate group who calls
themselves Christians but go to churches who operate in complete  rebellion
to Christ and the Bible

This is the group that is Biblically illiterate since they don’t even
believe the Bible to be true.  These are the people who see nothing wrong
with electing a member of a satanic cult to the White House because they
think a Mormon is a Christian.  They are the politically correct crowd who
has bought the lie a woman has the right to kill her baby.  They are the
group who lambastes those who speak out against the sin of homosexuality,
calling them names like “intolerant” and “hateful.”

The “religious left” is a group who will wield incredible political
influence in the upcoming 2008 election.  They are mostly made up of people
who call themselves Christians, but support the things Christ and the Bible
condemn.  Pray for these people since you can’t call yourself a follower of
Christ, yet stand on the opposite side of Christ on so many issues.  Truth
is not what we want it to be, it is what God says it is.  We don’t have the
luxury of giving our heart and life to Christ and then live any way we want.
A true follower of Christ is a follower of His Word.  Jesus said, “Why do
you call me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ and do not do what I say?”

In His love and service,
Your friend and brother in Christ,
Bill Keller

Does An Accurate Translation Of Luke 2:14 Support Calvinist Predestination?

Posted by Job on May 21, 2007

Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men.” Though other translations exist of Luke 2:14 exist (http://bible.cc/luke/2-14.htm), the most influential one, and the one that has basically been common vernacular for centuries by virtue of all the Christmas poems, plays, etc. have been influenced by the King James Version translation above. It just so happens that I was watching the NRB network (or it might have been TCT) on Sunday, and I saw this Presbyterian Bible scholar assert that when the King James version was written, the earliest manuscripts of that portion of Luke were not available. He then stated that the manuscript that was used was missing a single letter at the end of the sentence. That letter changes the entire meaning from the commonly known one derived from the King James Version to one in some of the other translations, such as this from the New American Standard Bible: “Glory to God in the highest, And on earth peace among men with whom He is pleased.” Now, this fellow stated (before withdrawing from it because he did not want to cause unnecessary dissent) that the accurate translation indicated that Yeshua HaMashiach came only to bring peace between God and His Elect; those predestined to salvation. Now I must admit, even a King James Version loyalist like myself must admit that this translation based on the newer manuscript is extremely helpful, because it opposes universalism; the claim that everyone – or at least all “good people” according to whatever humanistic notion is prevailing at any place and time calls you “good” despite Jesus Christ Himself saying that only God was good – will be saved. Nonetheless, I will oppose his interpretation that favors predestination after the manner of friendly engagement between members of the Body of Christ with my own beliefs, which affords man a degree of free will: this verse was a prophecy of sorts, declaring that God’s good will shall be bestowed upon all those who through faith alone accept Yeshua HaMashiach as their personal savior and endure to the end (Matthew 10:22) in loving God by keeping His Commandments. Yeshua means “God saves” or “salvation”, and the prophet Joel said that all who call upon His Name shall be saved (Joel 2:32), and we know that the words of a true prophet, the Word of God, does not return void (Isaiah 55:11). For such person, the war between God and sinner shall be ended because his sins will be forgotten. There will be peace between that person and God on earth and in Heaven, and on the day of judgment, that person’s name shall be found in the Book of Life written from the foundation of the world, and be with God forevermore. If you want the prophecy of Luke 2:14 to be a promise fulfilled in your life, please follow this link and complete the Three Step Salvation Plan healthelandgeneraldocuments.wordpress.com/2007/04/13/the-three-step-salvation-plan/. I urge you to do so today, for tomorrow is promised to no man!

How Not To Read The Bible: The Rock Church’s Anne Jimenez Says “Faith Comes By Hearing The Word Of God” Romans 10:17

Posted by Job on May 6, 2007

Now I have nothing against Pastor Anne Jimenez of The Rock Church in Virginia Beach (other than her very misleading pro – tithing propaganda). But I had to turn from her show today because in it she chose to be yet another person to willfully misread Romans 10:17 by claiming that it says “Faith coming by hearing the Word of God” and then going on to claim that the meaning of that verse is that you can increase your faith by listening to the sermons of preachers. She actually PREFACED her remarks by encouraging her congregation and listening audience to go out and buy and study Christian books and to increase their faith by doing so. It was a HUGE LETDOWN because when she began her remarks, I thought that I was going to hear another Christian writer or three to add to my current favorites Smith Wigglesworth, Derek Prince, Watchman Nee, and Andrew Lobias Murray. But not only did she not mention a good Christian writer for someone seeking to avoid this humanistic New Age self – help pap that dominates Christian bookstores these days, but the very reason why she was exhorting her listeners to do so was wrong … the false notion that by doing so people can increase their faith.

Now by reading legitimate Christian books and hearing legitimate sermons, you CAN learn more about your faith. You CAN learn how to use and exercise your faith. You CAN learn more about the Author and Finisher of your faith, the power of your faith, and where the power of your faith comes from. But you cannot increase your faith by this method or any other! Why? Because you are born with a measure of faith (Romans 12:3) ! That is why when it was asked of Yeshua HaMashiach that He would increase their faith, He demurred, saying that faith the size of the mustard seed would move mountains (Luke 17:5-6) meaning that they had sufficient faith to do all that God wanted them to do already.

And that is the key: doing all that God INTENDS for you to do. Receiving from God all that He INTENDS for us to receive. Why? We have to ask ourselves why people want this faith to begin with, and why they want it so badly that they will buy all of these books and tapes, attend all these conferences, and follow all of these preachers who promise to be able to show them how to build their faith. (The result of this demand creates a supply of teachers willing to provide this doctrine to them.) The reason people want more faith is because they want to do great things and receive greater things. They believe that if they only had more faith, then they could command the Hand of God and thereby be able to get anything that they want. Well, it doesn’t work that way. God does not exist to serve you; you were made to serve God. Moreover, when God PREDESTINED you, when He FOREKNEW you, He made for you a DESTINY. That means that He gave you everything that you needed to perform His Sovereign Will in your life the day that you were born, and that includes the amount of faith needed to accomplish it. And that is the error of the faith – increasers: instead of teaching you to seek to do that which God has called you to do, they encourage you to follow your own heart to do those things which are not expedient … to forsake things which God has called you to do in order to do things which He has not, to follow your own will or the will of some other man or spirit. To reject the good things which God has laid up in store for you in favor of the corrupt things that God not only does not have in store for you, but which God has spued out because of its corruption.

What is truly amazing is that even my child’s “” TV show, “A Fight For Faith“, was able to correctly use and apply Romans 10:17 correctly, and do so in less than 10 seconds, and thereby do a much better job and service than so many of these misguided and misleading preachers. Well, it will take you a good deal longer than 10 seconds, but please take a look at my essay Faith Does NOT Come By Hearing to see more about the ACTUAL meaning of Romans 10:17, which refers to receiving salvation through hearing the gospel just like “Biblegirl” said in “A Fight For Faith.” I know that Pastor Anne Jimenez co – leads one of the most prominent congregations in the country, but she really does need to watch that Bibleman episode to learn a thing or two so that she can stop engaging in this sort of spiritual deception.

More Evidence That The Left Is Turning Against Israel Because of Christian Zionism

Posted by Job on April 1, 2007

See link here. While it contains no new Palestinian disinformation, what is shocking is that such blatantly anti – Israel and anti – Semitic lies are on Counterpunch.org. This is OBVIOUSLY due to the American left (and many others who simply hate or fear Bible  – believing Christians) deciding that the friend of my enemy is my enemy. They hate Jews for the same reason that we love them: THE BIBLE. People who hate the Bible hate the Jews, people who love the Bible love the Jews. Why? It is all spiritual. If you reject the Bible because your “Christian” religion tells you to usurp it with your own doctrines and traditions or not to literally interpret it (as is the case with many Catholics and mainline denominational Christians, ecumenists, and liberation theologists) then evil spirits that cause you to hate God’s people will gain a legal claim over your mind, utterly corrupting it with the same hate and rejection that you have for God’s people that you have for God’s Spirit and Truth. One of the better manifestations of that I have experienced lately was this radio show that was tearing into the Tim LaHaye “Left Behind” phenomenon. While I have real problems with LaHaye doctrinally and politically, these people were absolutely insane, claiming that literally believing Revelation made Israel the bride of Christ and the church the concubine or prostitute of Christ. They went on to claim that the OLD TESTAMENT’s references to Israel did not literally mean a physical or ethnic nation or even a religion at all, but rather a “prophetic forshadowing of the church.” People, if you cannot literally interpret Romans 1:11, then it is obviously because of DEMONS IN YOUR HEAD, AND YOU WANT THEM THERE. So, what does this have to do with the mainstream left? Well, they reject the Bible because it tells them that they cannot murder their children with abortion, they cannot have sex with whoever they want to whenever they want to, and so on and so forth. Now these people were willing to PRETEND to love Israel so long as people who PRETENDED to love the Bible hated them. But now that people who ACTUALLY love the Bible love Israel (my only problem with John Hagee and similar is that they have started to love the current physical nation of Israel MORE than they love the Bible that tells them to love them, a fact which Jews are beginning to exploit and are getting better at it), the people who hate the Bible are beginning to abandon all pretenses. This can only mean, people, that time is getting short. The people who hate Israel (and this is proof that it is not just the left!) are now being emboldened with not only real monetary and political power, BUT REAL SPIRITUAL POWER THAT COMES FROM THE MOST POWERFUL NATION ON THE GLOBE. If you are still playing around with your “religion” and have not come to a personal relationship with Yeshua HaMashiach, well, now is the time to do so, and I am here to do anything that you require to help you to attain that goal! Father YHVH may the rising tide of anti – Israel and anti – Semitism cause people all over the world to realize that the time is becoming short and that to be saved from destruction and the lake of fire they are going to have to become part of spiritual Israel by accepting salvation through Yeshua HaMashiach and being indwelled with the Ruach Hakadosh so that they can stand with spiritual Israel for Your Word the Bible and for You. In the Name of Yeshua HaMashiach, Amen.

Bleak News On Christians In Sudan, Word of Faith/Prosperity Preachers, Where Are You?

Posted by Job on March 21, 2007

First the bad news (see link) and now the good: God is still on the throne, and will never forsake His people! Now you see, you Word of Faith/prosperity people have no answers for situations like this, because you claim that the Christians in Sudan aren’t has holy as you, or don’t have as much faith as you. It is a real church scandal that people put up with this, and is proof that the church people are the main ones who need Jesus Christ in their lives! If the people in Sudan were to just be holy, speak the Word of Faith, and start speaking in tongues (because you all claim that you aren’t really saved unless you speak in tongues, right?) then they would all be millionaires instead of getting raped and murdered by Muslims and dying of disease and starvation in refugee camps. Well, you false “Christians” who deny and reject (or simply have not read) I Timothy 6, the OLD COVENANT was for blessing, and the OLD COVENANT was for ISRAEL. The NEW COVENANT, built on BETTER PROMISES, is for SALVATION. The OLD COVENANT was for this life, the NEW COVENANT WAS FOR THE NEXT. That was why the Jews rejected their Messiah, because they were looking for an OLD COVENANT king who would deliver them blessings. They did not want a NEW COVENANT king who would deliver them eternal life. How sad that so many of you who claim to be Christians are in fact rejecting Him for your worldliness yet again. I claim spiritual solidarity with the REAL Christians suffering and dying not only in foreign lands but right here on the streets, in the jails, in the hospitals, etc. right over here, and as to you false Christians, well upon you I shake the dust off my feet. About you I say the same as what Yeshua HaMashiach said about the towns in Israel that rejected His Seventy: it will be more tolerable in the day of judgment for Sodom than it will be for you!

The Emerging Church? Stay Away!

Posted by Job on March 17, 2007

Here is one of their manifestos. If you are looking to find any actual BELIEFS in here, then keep looking. As a matter of fact, it is quite proud of the fact that there are no “doctrinal statements” and that one is not required to actually BELIEVE IN ANYTHING to be included. There are no qualifications whatsoever except a willingness to call yourself a Christian of some sort (or just be willing to “commune with them and work towards their goals, whatever they are”). There is even no definiton of “Christian.” They mention being like Jesus and emulating Jesus and the teachings of Jesus and of pleasing God, but no mention of who or what Jesus or God are or why they should be served. Of course, which means no mention of sin or judgment of sin. They mention God’s Word … what is God’s Word? What does it mean? They mention faith … faith in WHAT exactly? So, as you see, participation in the “emerging church” requires absolutely no qualifications at all. But there IS a disqualification. You know what it is? Well, believing in and keeping the Bible. That is, being an actual Christian. It is not so much that if you are an actual Christian you will want to have nothing to do with the emerging church (though it is certainly true) but rather the “emerging church” will not want to have anything to do with you. Make no mistake, this is nothing more than an attempt to change Christianity from being not only a religion (which I am no fan of) – let alone a relationship with God through Yeshua HaMashiach but even a RELIGION – to being a mere political philosophy through which man can please and worship himself. Spirit of anti – Christ, anyone? I strongly urge you, people, those who possess a form of godliness but deny the power thereof, from such turn away!

Anti – War Christian Left Marching In D.C.

Posted by Job on March 17, 2007

See link here. I wanted to ignore this story, but I could not. So, I wanted to criticize the marchers and the motivation and spirit in which they are marching, but I could not. I want to defend the war, but I cannot. So, what does the Christian do when he does not know what to do? What does the Christian say when he has nothing to day? That is when the Christian most certainly must pray. Father YHVH in the Name of Yeshua HaMashiach, may the people marching in D.C. against the war be doing Your Will. May it lead to people being saved from their sins and from this wicked world, and more people becoming among the redeemed of the brethren. May Your Name be lifted up, may Your Word be preached, and may the Holy Spirit move and cause people to be convicted concerning their sins, accept Yeshua HaMashiach as their savior, and be delivered from evil and from evil spirits. I cannot save these people, Lord, but You can. I cannot protect the spirits of the men and women fighting in Iraq and Afghanistan, or of the Afghanis and Iraqis, but You can. You, Lord, alone are righteous. You Lord, alone, are worthy to judge. Whether it is on a desert battlefield or in the streets or in the courtrooms, the legislative floors, the boardrooms, the AIDS hospices, in huts and igloos, or in prison cells, or in the nightclubs, bars, brothels, and adult entertainment establishments, may Your Word be preached and may there be a willing, open heart to receive it, and may it all be done to worship You and to fulfill Your Will and prophecies, and with the preaching and receiving of Your Word may you be well pleased. In the Name of Yeshua HaMashiach, amen.

Calvinist Says God Loves Those He Has Not Called To Repentance

Posted by Job on March 10, 2007

Here is an attempt to defend the utterly unscriptural doctrine of Calvinism. Translation: God created a bunch of people for the express purpose of sending them to the lake of fire for eternity, but He loves them and is a fair, righteous, just God anyway. Listen, Calvinism was created by a MAN. It is ONE MAN’S INTERPRETATION OF SCRIPTURE. That is why people who adhere to this doctrine are called CALVINISTS, AFTER HIS NAME. Would it not be better to adhere to the BIBLE, and be called after GOD’S NAME? Now, of course, I am not saying that no Calvinists are saved, or even that any fewer Calvinists are saved than any other denomination. After all, Calvinists are still CHRISTIAN. But come on here, consider the five points of Calvinism:

Total depravity (Original Sin): renders preaching the gospel meaningless and useless, and many Calvininsts deemphasize this, especially with regards to, er, certain people if you know what I mean, precisely for this reason . Unconditional election (God’s Election): not in the Bible, and furthermore were this true it would render most of God’s dealings with not only individuals but NATIONS in the Bible utterly senseless. Limited atonement (Particular Redemption): specifically rejected in the gospels and pretty much in the rest of the New Testament, and also renders the sacrificial/holiday system that God imposed on Israel to prophetically point to the Moshiach as meaningless (as well as the tabernacle, ark, and temple). Irresistible grace (Effectual Calling): again, by denying free will contradicts mostly everything in the New Testament and renders God’s dealings with people in the Old Testament incomprehensible. For instance, why were Adam and Eve placed in the Garden of Eden in the first place? Perseverance of the Saints: for this to be true, then once saved a person loses his free will to sin again, making the sin of blaspheming the Holy Spirit mentioned by Yeshua HaMashiach Himself impossible, as does irresistable grace and unconditional election.

This false doctrine is PARTIALLY propped up by taking the four references to “predestinate” in the Bible plus some references to “the foundation of the world” and interpreting them completely apart from any form of context (by that I mean the whole of the Bible, the verses preceding and following it, and the language and culture of the time). To Calvinists I ask this question: if God has a list of who will be saved and who will perish – if the Book of Life is already written and inalterable – then A) why did Yeshua HaMashiach threaten to erase peoples’ names from the Book of Life in Revelation here and here? More to the point B) WHY DID GOD MAKE SAUL, who rebelled almost from day one, murdered the priests, tried to kill David, and consulted the witch of Endor, KING OF ISRAEL, HIS CHOSEN NATION WITH WHICH HE MADE HIS COVENANT WITH AVRAHAM AND FROM WHICH HE PLANNED TO BRING THE REDEEMER OF ALL MANKIND IN THE WORLD? AND WHY DID HE REGRET IT LATER?

Of course, Calvinism is convenient because it purports to answer some rather thorny questions, especially that regarding those who lived long virtuous lives and were dedicated to fulfilling whatever religion, culture, and custom that they grew up in without ever having had the opportunity of hearing the Name of Yeshua HaMashiach. Calvinism deals with that by saying that they weren’t predestined by God to be saved, and that Yeshua HaMashiach did not die on the cross for them. Well, I have written something that uses CONTEXTUAL LITERAL INTERPRETATION OF THE BIBLE to attempt to answer those tough questions. Not that I pretend to have all the answers, for I am not God, and furthermore God Himself said that it is not given to us to know all of His Ways. But it still represents my best effort to defend God’s righteousness while still staying true to the scriptures, and not trying to conform God to the doctrine of a man, church, denomination, philosophy, religious movement, or my own personal experience or sense of right and wrong. Here is the link, and I encourage anyone to make honest literal contextual Bible based efforts to improve upon my attempts. I wish not to justify myself, but rather my God and His Word, and in doing so serve my God, stay true to His Word, and help people. With all due respect to Calvin and Calvinism, it requires gymnastics and liberties with scripture that is practically of the sort that is used to justify Mormon and Jehovah’s Witness and Oneness Pentecostal heresy and Catholic dogma. While not putting them into the league with Mormons, Jehovah’s Witnesses, Oneness Pentecostals, and others who deny the true nature of God’s Tri – Unity (like I said, Calvinists are Christians) or even those who pray to Mary, “saints”, icons, etc. and claim that any man is infallible or can be justified in any way through works or redeemed in any way after death and have canonized extrabiblical literature that contradicts and negates the rest, I nonetheless call on Calvinists and all else to decide to renounce taking for doctrines the vain teachings of men (as Yeshua HaMashiach said to do) and instead decide that what the Bible says is good enough for them. Father YHVH in the Name of Yeshua HaMashiach, may all Calvinists and those like unto them choose the truth of the Bible over the teachings of men and their own values and thoughts. Amen.

Lots Of Good Stuff On Barack HUSSEIN Obama’s September 11th – Justifying Church

Posted by Job on March 10, 2007

See link here, and pay attention to a lot of the other links contained in the article. This church has as much to do with Christianity as does the white supremacist “Worldwide Church of the Creator” (run by an admitted atheist who rejects Christianity because Christianity makes him equal to black people) does, and interestingly enough that church is near Chicago too. Even better: Oprah Winfrey, the queen of new age, is in that church. So, no, you do not have to make a statement of confession to worship Yeshua HaMashiach exclusively or at all to be in that church. When you add to to that the fact that Barack HUSSEIN Obama’s “pastor” made comments that can be easily construed as to saying that 9/11 was justifiable because it was an act of minority self – defense against a white capitalist nation (typical liberation theology stuff) and that when he studied religion at Howard University his emphasis was ISLAM, then that is just so much more evidence for my assertion that Obama is an undercover Muslim member of the Muslim Brotherhood (I admit that I did not create this line of thinking but rather Debbie Schlussel – of whom I am not a fan – did, and I just decided to run with it.

Muslim Former Sailor Arrested On Terror Charges

Posted by Job on March 8, 2007

A lot of weblogs are probably going to link to this story and similar about a Muslim former sailor accused of supporting terrorism by disclosing secret information about the location of Navy ships and the best ways to attack them, and how this means that Muslims are this global threat and an internal threat, how we need to profile and spy on them, prevent them from joining the military and start deporting them, etc. But going after Muslims, 90+% of them are law – abiding people, is not what Heal The Land is about. I have nothing against Muslims; I love Muslims! And if there is anyone of you out there who hate and want to discriminate against law – abiding Muslims, you either need salvation or you need spiritual deliverance from demons of hate and racism. And if you are a Muslim, well let me tell you, you are practicing a false religion. Have you read the story of the encounter between Muhammed and the spirit that he perceived to be an angel? Well, it was an angel alright, but of the fallen variety; a DEMON! The encounter was very violent, and the thing took hold of Muhammed by force, and forced the unwilling Muhammed to be his oracle by nearly choking him to death twice. After the encounter, Muhammed was convinced that he was possessed by an evil spirit, and fell into a deep depression, becoming suicidal. It was only after some time, when that evil spirit wore down his resistance, that he began to believe that the demon was the angel Gabriel, and that what he had been given was from the true God. See this link to see that I am not making this up; and I first heard it on a TV show discussing a book authored by a liberal scholar who actually LIKES AND SUPPORTS ISLAM! Any reading of the Christian or Hebrew scriptures show that this is not how legitimate angels deal with righteous people. So Muslim friends, do not be deceived. You too need a Saviour. Do not put your trust in the “points system” in your works religion; works cannot cover a man’s sin, and no man’s sum total of righteous acts can exceed his evil thoughts and deeds, especially when you consider the vast sum of the number of the former, and yes that includes your dreams! Do not trust a religion where unless you die in jihad, you enter eternity not even knowing your fate. I entreat you Muslims, as well as anyone who has hate against Muslims in your heart, to have your sins forgiven and be saved through Yeshua HaMashiach, who was not a mere prophet as not only Muslims but Jews and many other religions teach, but is part of the Holy Trinity, the One God who is not 1 +1 + 1 paganism but exists eternally as 1 x 1 x 1 Tri – Unity. It is interesting that the Koran holds that Yeshua HaMashiach, whom you call Issa, was born of a virgin. How else could that have been except He was born of the Holy Spirit, the Ruach Hakadosh, with the Word of God taking the place of the male seed? And if the Word of God took the place of the male seed, does that not make Issa God in the flesh? Please, both Muslims and Muslim haters, click on this link, follow its instructions, believe, and be saved from your sins and empowered to be with God for eternity! Now the irony is that some people, including not a few Muslims, would really have rather this post been one bashing Muslims as evil untrustworthy terrorists than one being a call to salvation. Well people, that is the difference between having the love of Issa in your heart and the hate of a demon.

Demon Of The Day: False Religion

Posted by Job on March 6, 2007

The current thinking in spiritual warfare is that there is only one true path to God and Heaven, Bible – based Christianity, and that all other religions are demonic, and moreover each was created by a demon, and all followers of those religions must have demons that have the same name as that religion cast out of them through spiritual deliverance after their coming to know Father YHVH through acceptance of Yeshua HaMashiach as their personal Saviour. Why? Because though they are saved through Yeshua HaMashiach and have the Ruach Hakadosh indwelling them, the demon of the other religion may still torment and confuse them. The biggest danger will be their attempt to mix Christianity with their prior religion, or claim that their prior religion was in some way beneficial or legitimate. A great example of this is Jeremiah Cummings, who despite being an international evangelist who has appeared on and has a show on (surprise surprise) Trinity Broadcasting Network, has not been able to give up the Koran. He claims to have brought tens of thousands of Muslims to Yeshua HaMashiach by showing them how the Koran reveals Him as the Messiah, and even claimed in his TBN appearance before Paul Crouch that the Koran was a legitimate holy book, the inspired revelation of God. Of course Paul Crouch’s father, a missionary who ruined his health bringing the TRUE GOSPEL to Muslims in Egypt, would have stood up and denounced the demons speaking those lies through Cummings – and the demons that were allowing Crouch to allow those lies to be spoken – immediately. Of course, once Paul Crouch started allowing Jesus Only Oneness Pentecostals like T. D. Jakes and Noel Jones on his network – of course seeking the viewers and money that cult would bring in – allowing one as Jeremiah Cummings on was no big deal, just as allowing Mormons and Jehovah’s Witnesses – as TBN certainly will be in the future – will be no big deal. Because you see people, as Paul Crouch certainly knows, while the Koran calls Yeshua the Messiah, Son of God, and the Saviour who was born of a virgin and died for our sins and resurrected and ascended into Heaven and is coming back again, please realize that the Book of Mormon and the Jehovah’s Witnesses watchtower tracts do the same. The difference is that ONLY CHRISTIANITY HOLDS THAT YESHUA HAMASHIACH IS GOD, AND ONLY TRUE CHRISTIANITY HOLDS THAT YESHUA HAMASHIACH IS A “PERSON” OF THE GOD THAT PRE – EXISTED AND EXISTS ETERNALLY IN TRI – UNITY; FATHER YHVH, WORD YESHUA HAMASHIACH, AND SPIRIT RUACH HAKADOSH, NOT ONE PLUS ONE PLUS ONE AS SAY THE MORMONS, MUSLIMS, NON – MESSIANIC JEWS, JEHOVAH’S WITNESSES, AND ONENESS JESUS ONLY FALSE CHRISTIANS WHO CALL US PAGANS, BUT ONE TIMES ONE TIMES ONE! Now the Oneness Pentecostal Jesus Only types are not like unto these; they at least regard Yeshua HaMashiach as God, but the rest regard Him as a mere prophet or superangel.

So, our discussion of the demon of false religion is not speaking of the Mormonism demon, or the Islam demon, or the Buddhism demon, or the Bahai demon, or the univeralism demon, or the Hinduism demon, or the Jehovah’s Witness demon. Instead, it is a demon that causes people who are – or were – actual Christians to deviate from the Bible. It can be found with and confused with false teaching, false doctrine, false tradition, ritualism, legalism, doctrinal error, doctrinal obsession, denominationalism, and a host of others, but it is the root, or controlling demon. Now, this is going to offend a lot of you people of Calvinist and Baptist persuasion who believe that “you can’t lose your salvation because the Holy Spirit seals you, and you were predestined to be conformed into the image of Jesus Christ.” This is precisely how false religion works: it does not stop you from reading the Bible, but instead causes you to read it outside of the proper context of the whole – and sometimes outside of the context of the verses that directly precede and follow it – for the purposes of justifying what some man made up; sometimes through honest confusion or error, but often through stubborness, pride, rebellion, or simply what some demon was whispering in his ear. Well, for the “you can’t lose your salvation” doctrine to be true, it would mean that God can be mocked! But God is not mocked, because the Bible says so. You cannot lose your salvation, but you can throw it away, and one of the ways that you can throw it away is to become so bound with the false religious demons that you reject true doctrine and thereby forget God, and Psalm 9:17 says where all who forget God go.

I will not list here all of the ways that false religion manifests in Christianity, but rather will make only a few points.

1. The head of the church is Yeshua HaMashiach, not any man or any governmental or bureaucratic body. And churches are to be guided by the Holy Spirit, Ruach Hakadosh. Try to add the least bit to that or take the least bit from it, and only bad things can result. 2. Saul (who became Paul) gave clear instructions regarding the qualifications for becoming a church leader – and for remaining one – most prominently in the letters to Timothy, but also in other places. How many churches are following those instructions? And how many people are remaining in churches knowing that their leaders were not chosen in accordance with the Bible, and they are not being governed by Christ according to the Holy Spirit and the Bible? 3. Merely because we are the church and not Israel does not mean that the church can break the laws and covenants. Now while salvation has never been established or maintained through the keeping of the law, sin is still sin! So please, church people, take the Bible seriously when it gives you Exodus 20:4: Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth. Leviticus 26:1 Ye shall make you no idols nor graven image, neither rear you up a standing image, neither shall ye set up any image of stone in your land, to bow down unto it: for I am the LORD your God. Deuteronomy 4:16-19 – “Lest ye corrupt yourselves, and make you a graven image, the similitude of any figure, the likeness of male or female, The likeness of any beast that is on the earth, the likeness of any winged fowl that flieth in the air, The likeness of any thing that creepeth on the ground, the likeness of any fish that is in the waters beneath the earth: And lest thou lift up thine eyes unto heaven, and when thou seest the sun, and the moon, and the stars, even all the host of heaven, shouldest be driven to worship them, and serve them, which the LORD thy God hath divided unto all nations under the whole heaven.” No, I am not just bashing Catholics; plenty of Protestants do that stuff to, and not just the charismatics either.

The bottom line is that we have the BIBLE people. It is really not a hard book to understand or follow. It only becomes hard if you make it hard because of your desire to follow after what other people are doing. If you grew up in a church that preaches salvation by baptism, for instance, then if your desire is to follow after that church and your family and friends who are in that church, then you are going to deny John 3 and Romans 9 and 10. If you decide that the best solution to the vexing issue of what is going to be the eternal fate of those who die without ever having been preached Yeshua HaMashiach is the man made doctrine of predestination (including the claim that man cannot accept or reject God’s grace), then you are going to ignore that the whole entire Bible is a description of man’s ability to exercise his free will. (If Calvinism is true, how does the sad case of King Saul make any sense? And if God never predestined King Saul, why did He choose him as king? And if your response to that question is “Oh, that is the Old Covenant, the Old Testament” … then WHY ON EARTH IS THE OLD TESTAMENT IN OUR BIBLE OTHER THAN TO CONFUSE AND MISLEAD PEOPLE? And WHY ON EARTH WOULD GOD HAVE GIVEN ALL OF THE COVENANTS AND REVELATIONS TO THE JEWS ONLY TO LATER TOTALLY NULLIFY IT AND CAST IT ASIDE! YOU “THE OLD TESTAMENT/OLD COVENANT IS IRRELEVANT” PEOPLE ARE IGNORING “HAS GOD CAST ASIDE HIS PEOPLE? GOD FORBID!” AND “I CAME NOT TO DESTROY THE LAW BUT TO FULFILL IT”!) Like I said about the Catholics, my aim is not to pick on Calvinists, for they are far from the only ones.

The ultimate point is that every verse, every phrase, every letter in the Bible means something, and none of it is in variance with anything else. If anything else is the case, then our faith is not only meaningless, but extremely dangerous and worthy of nothing except being banned and its existence erased by all societies that consider themselves civilized. Therefore, every tradition, every practice, every doctrine, every ritual, every regulation that ignores, transgresses, subverts, changes, or negates anything in the Bible is the demon of false religion at work. And if you are holding onto what man has established rather than what God’s Word said purposefully, then the root demon of false religion is likely at work in you, as are the category demons that it controls. Sometimes the false religion demon lets in the other category demons, sometimes a category demon gets in and lets in the more powerful root demon, but the result is the same. Anything that causes you to read the Bible and then reject or deny any portion of it while still claiming to be a Christian is a demon, plain and simple. It would be far better to admit that you are struggling with your faith or understanding and seek help. I had to do the same. I have to admit, for instance, that the Noah’s ark thing gave me trouble for a long time. Finally, a drawing in the Rose Publishing Book of Bible Charts , Maps, and Timelines showing me EXACTLY HOW BIG NOAH’S ARK WAS ended my doubt. Another thing that gave me trouble was Cain’s getting married and building a city. Ummm … where did the people that he did these things with come from? Finally, a lecture from Kent Hovind (regrettably now imprisoned for tax fraud, Christians have to follow the law too folks!)that explained that back then PEOPLE LIVED A REALLY LONG TIME AND HAD A LOT OF KIDS (Adam, for instance was still alive when Methusaleh was born). Consider the “Adam begat sons and daughters” thing in the context of God’s curse upon Eve that MULTIPLIED HER CONCEPTION, meaning that she was going to have FAR MANY MORE CHILDREN THAN GOD ORIGINALLY INTENDED FOR WOMEN TO HAVE FOR THE PURPOSES OF VERY QUICKLY POPULATING THE EARTH.

So you see, any and all doubts that we have concerning the Bible can ultimately be fully explained through much prayer and study if we admit our unbelief and further admit that the problem is not with the Bible but our failure to BELIEVE and unwillingess to KEEP the Bible. We compromise because of laziness, we compromise because of ignorance, we compromise because of convenience, but yet we compromise! If a Christian dedicates himself to learning for himself what the Bible means, and then keeping that meaning daily, then the false religion demon has no way to enter. But falling short of that in any least way allows an opening, and where an opening exists, a demon is very much capable of finding and exploiting it. If you love God, you will accept His Son As Your Lord and Saviour and will keep His Commandments, no false religion demon will be able to enter into the picture.

Why Do The Wicked Prosper?

Posted by Job on March 4, 2007

“Why does the way of the wicked prosper? Why do all of the faithless live at ease?” If Jeremiah had a computer back in his day, he may have sent Liveprayer an email with these questions that we read him asking in Jeremiah 12:1. Not a day goes by that we don’t get hundreds of emails from people asking these very questions. A woman who loves the Lord and honors Him with her life has a husband who cheats on her, leaves her and their children for another woman, and is now living a comfortable life while she and her children struggle just to live day to day.

A man who faithfully serves the Lord gives decades of his life working for a company that takes advantage of him, operates with little ethics or morals, and lets him go just before he is scheduled to retire to save money while those who run the company live extravagant lifestyles. A young man trying to follow the Lord and God’s Word struggles to buy a new pair of shoes while teenage thug rappers glorifying and living lifestyles
of sin wear hundreds of thousands of dollars of jewelry and drive new exotic cars.

There is an endless list of examples of those who love the Lord, live for Him, yet are currently struggling in their daily lives while those who deny Christ and live in complete rebellion to Him seem to prosper and live in great comfort and ease. So it becomes a legitimate question that the prophet Jeremiah asks. It is a legitimate question that men who love the Lord throughout the ages have asked. It is a proper question for those
who serve and follow the Lord today to ask. WHY DO THE WICKED SEEM TO
PROSPER?

The answer to this question, like the answers to ALL questions, is found in God’s Word. You need to take time to read the 37th Psalm, all 40 verses. The answer to this age-old question of why do the wicked seem to prosper is found in never losing sight of the big picture of what this life is all about. First, it is God who gives us life and we all have the
same general purpose of serving and glorifying Him with our lives.

Second, we are all going to die one day. As the Bible clearly tells us, tomorrow is promised to none of us, so that day is not as far away as many think it is. Third, when we die, our soul lives on for eternity. The only issue to be determined is do we spend that eternity WITH God who created us or APART from God who created us. Each person makes that
choice in either accepting or rejecting God’s ONLY plan of salvation through faith in His Son Jesus Christ.

So what is important to understand is that we actually have a very limited number of days in this life here on earth. The most critical choice we have to make during our life is what we do with Jesus, since that choice will determine our eternal home. For those who have chosen to follow Christ, their days on this earth are to be focused on fulfilling our
God-given purpose of serving and glorifying the Lord with our lives in whatever way God calls each of us to do that.

If you haven’t noticed, I have not mentioned having money, possessions, or any of the things of this world. You see, those are simply the temporary things of THIS LIFE and are meaningless in light of eternity. What happens is the righteous, the followers of Christ get caught up in measuring prosperity and success the way the world does by the temporal things of this world. Real prosperity and success aren’t found in the temporary things of this world but in the eternal things of God. Things like peace and joy and living an abundant life that don’t come from this world, but from a personal relationship with Jesus Christ!

Let me ask you a very serious question. This is actually a question Jesus once asked. He said,” What does it profit a man to gain the whole world, yet lose his soul?” When Jesus was in the desert being tempted by the devil for 40 days and 40 nights, at one point satan showed Him all of the kingdoms of the world and told him to worship him and they would all be His. Jesus answered, “It is written: ‘Worship the Lord your God and serve Him only.’ ” You see, Christ understood that the things of this world are but temporary. The REAL Kingdom is not in this world, but in Heaven. The REAL riches are not in this world, but in Heaven.

I love you and care about you so much. It is natural in our flesh to look at those who have chosen to reject Christ and live their lives in complete rebellion to God and His Word and wonder why they seem to prosper while we may be currently struggling. While they may be enjoying the prosperity this world offers, without Jesus they are SPIRITUALLY BANKRUPT. Actually, rather than envy these people, they are to be pitied since when their brief journey through life is over they will be spending eternity in a place created for satan and his fallen angels unless they come to know Jesus. Bill Gates may be the richest man on the planet, but the moment he dies, all of his wealth is MEANINGLESS. The ONLY THING that will matter when he stands before God is does he know Jesus as his personal Savior.

This is also the problem with the “prosperity gospel” so many today preach in error. There is NOTHING in the Bible that says just because you know Jesus you are guaranteed to have great wealth in this life. What the Bible DOES PROMISE is that if you know Christ as your Savior, you are assured of everlasting life and that during this life you will enjoy the blessings and provision of God. You see, God has promised to meet your
needs during this life, needs like food, shelter, and clothing. That is God’s promise to His children. The true prosperity gospel is not about dollars, it is about BLESSINGS!

God NEVER promised you would have a million dollar home, a new Rolls Royce in the driveway, $5,000 suits, a Rolex watch, or any of the many treasures this life can offer. God may allow some to be blessed to have those things during their life, but the wealth of a follower of Jesus is not measured in the temporary things of this world, but in the eternal things of God! God measures the heart of His children not by their bank account,
but by their obedience, their faithfulness, and their willingness to completely surrender all they have to follow Him.

I will be praying for you today. Praying that God will speak to you through these words about how you look on those who have chosen to live their lives in rebellion to God, yet seem to be prospering. The fact is, they may indeed be prosperous according to the standards of the world for a brief season. But whatever we have in this life will one day be gone, and at that point, the only thing that will matter is do we know Jesus. Pray for those who you may have been envious of for what they possess.
Pray that they will come to know Christ as their Savior since salvation cannot be bought, it is only available through faith in Jesus.

I have dealt over the years with thousands of people who had great wealth but when the real trials of life came, they realized that all of their wealth and possessions meant nothing. When your spouse or child or loved one has a serious illness and is laying in a hospital bed, when you find out your spouse wants a divorce, when you learn your child is on drugs, when the doctor tells you that you have a serious disease, when you face
many of the major battles in life we all face, at that moment your money and possessions mean nothing. Only a deep abiding faith in Christ can sustain you through those dark moments in life.

There is no amount of money that can buy God’s peace. There is no amount of money that can buy God’s strength. There is no amount of money that can buy God’s joy. All of those things come from your relationship with Christ and your faith in Him. The wicked may prosper for a season, but it is the righteous who have true prosperity for all eternity.

In His love and service,
Your friend and brother in Christ,
Bill Keller
