Almost Universally Unknown SALVATION Passages

The following scriptures have been discounted or at least de-emphasized as being vital for understanding personal salvation and having any connection with salvation by grace!salvation scriptures That is because the prevalent false version of grace which people have been taught can’t allow for them.

  • “The one who sows to please his sinful nature, from that nature will reap destruction; the one who sows to please the Spirit, from the Spirit will reap ETERNAL LIFE. Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest IF we do not give up.” (Gal 6:8,9)

WARNING! If you share those scriptures with others, who have been adversely influenced by the devil’s doctrine, they very well might label you as teaching a work’s salvation, legalism, and being cultic though these scriptures are pure 100% word of God! Be prepared and remember their rejection of those scriptures doesn’t negate them! They are still related to salvation as much as John 3:16; Romans 10:9,10 and Eph. 2:8,9! The problem is their faulty theology, not the aforementioned scriptures.

Some Highlights From Acts 1-10

In Acts 1, the 120 were in the upper room waiting for the baptism of the Holy Spirit (1:5) to have power for witnessing to the lost (1:8).sorcery Mary the mother of Jesus was there, but had NO special position, honor or influence among the others (1:14). The saints prayed to God and cast lots to know the Apostolic replacement for Judas, who fell away from the faith. The lot fell to Matthias, who became an apostle at that point.

In Acts 2, the Holy Spirit came and the 120 spoke in tongues and non believers heard them speaking in different foreign languages. Peter preached to them and the people were cut to the heart and said to Peter and the other apostles, “Brothers, what shall we do?” (Acts 2:37) Peter spoke about forgiveness of sins (2:38), which is one of two other times he did the same (Acts 3:19; 10:43). Some get confused and think one must be water baptized to be forgiven, but Acts 3:19 and 10:43 clarify the meaning of 2:38 and reveals it is the repentance which brings forgiveness. That is also how the repentant thief got forgiven and he was never water baptized. For awhile the believers lived in Jerusalem together as in a community and shared what they had. (Later that was no longer the case, as they scattered because of persecution, which broke out after the martyrdom of Stephen.)

Acts 6:3-5 lists 7 men filled with the Holy Spirit. They were humble servants, who were also miracle performing bold soul winners! Stephen and Philip are especially noted. [The Book of Acts mostly deals with Peter in the first half and Paul in the second half. However, Stephen and Philip are also mentioned, performing miracles and boldly witnessing, but neither were apostles.] Stephen became the first martyr in Acts. He preached an unprepared sermon loaded with God’s word (Chapter 7). As truth-haters were killing Stephen by pummeling him with large stones, Stephen called on JESUS at the hour of his death – NOT Mary (Acts 7:59,60). Sadly, many sincere Catholics ignore Stephen’s example and call on Mary at the hour of their death, as they have been wrongly taught. Stephen prayed TO Jesus (Acts 7:59), showing he is NOT Michael the archangel as Jehovah’s Witnesses have been fallaciously taught. In Acts 7:58 we first read of Saul (who later became the Apostle Paul). Saul’s conversion is the GREATEST salvation testimony in scripture, for he is first shown to be a diligent and fierce persecutor of Christians, who later became the mighty apostle Paul! [**BTW, Stephen was also filled with grace (Acts 6:8). The Catholic church teaches Mary was “sinless” because she was filled with grace. If that conclusion would be true (which it isn’t), then Stephen would also be sinless, for he too was filled with grace!]

After Stephen’s death, the church scattered from Jerusalem (except the Twelve). noteworthy events in actsPhilip, one of the Seven, now comes to the forefront. He went to a city in Samaria. Through him, “with shrieks, evil spirits came out of many, and MANY paralytics and cripples were healed” (Acts 8:7)! Even a man named Simon got saved as did many others.

==>NOTE: Simon might be the second greatest conversion testimony in Acts, but such is commonly unrecognized and even denied. Simon was a SORCERER, whom the deceived people in that whole area thought was THE GREAT POWER OF GOD (Acts 8:10)! Imagine that! The people there couldn’t differentiate the supernatural power and deeds of the devil through sorcery from the power of God. Folks, the only way that can be done is to examine the message surrounding the supernatural. Remember, there are two sources of supernatural power – God and the devil. God is NOT the only source of supernatural power. That truth is vital to prevent fatal religious deception. Shockingly, Simon the sorcerer did get saved! He came to saving faith and was baptized (8:13), but later when Peter and John came into the area, Simon’s heart was captive to sin (Acts 8:20-24). Simon quickly fell away. If he returned to God again is not known. [Simon’s conversion is flatly, but wrongly denied by the, “I never knew you” group – once saved always saved proponents!]

Philip also led an Ethiopian eunuch, an important official in charge of all the treasury of Candace (queen of the Ethiopians), to Jesus (8:27-38). After baptizing him, Philip was translated to Azotus and traveled about, preaching the gospel all alone in all the towns until he reached Caesarea (Acts 8:40)! [That eunuch was another noteworthy conversion through Philip’s ministry.]

In chapter 9, Saul got struck down and saved on the Damascus road on his way to persecute more Christians! That was the most noteworthy event in Christianity, after Jesus’ death on the cross. [Saul became the Apostle Paul and wrote half of the New Testament.]

Acts 10 is very significant too for it describes a God fearing, praying and generous to the poor lost Roman centurion named Cornelius. An angel appeared to him and told him where to send to get Peter who would tell him the message of how to be saved (Acts 11:13,14). That actual message is recorded in Acts 10:34-43. Cornelius got instantly saved as he believed on JESUS in his heart without speaking a syllable. He was also filled with the Holy Spirit at the same time. Afterwards he was water baptized as a believer. [Infants can’t believe on Jesus and are NEVER baptized in the Bible. Men and women were baptized (Acts 8:12). Infant baptism is not a Christian practice, but a pagan practice.] Also, just being highly religious and generous doesn’t mean one is saved and not on the road to hell, for Cornelius was like that and yet needed salvation. Cornelius needed TRUTH on how to be forgiven and Peter gave it to him, showing the preciousness of the life-giving gospel message. The gospel message is much more valuable than gold. Hence, to preach a false gospel is not only disastrously misleading for those who hear it, but also a damnable sin in itself for all who preach it (Gal. 1:8,9)!

Former Catholic Writes Mother Angelica

Dear Mother Angelica:

Greetings in Jesus’ name. I recently heard one of your talks on the internet. I was touched out of mercy for your soul. mother angelicaIt appears that you are a sincere Catholic, who is trying to do the right things. That is commendable. However, as a former Catholic, I know the emptiness without salvation. We (Catholics) have been taught Mary, the sacraments and being a Catholic are all essential for salvation. Such is dangerously foreign to the Bible.

Please accept the enclosed book [Is This The Mary of the Bible] as a gift for you. Read it carefully. JESUS is to be the focus of our faith. We can get to him without Mary by being humble and sincere. He will take us in if we are willing to turn from our sins and place a submissive faith in JESUS (which leaves 0% for Mary).

The Fatima visions declare that Mary is “the way” to God! That is violently contradicted by Jesus himself in John 14:6. So the dilemma for all Catholics is which will you reject? Will you believe Jesus and reject the Fatima visions and the Catholic authorities, which sanctioned them OR what Jesus taught?

Mother Teresa Gets Awarded

The Bible declares the Lord Jesus as our life (Col. 3:4), our sweetness (Mt. 11:29) and our hope (1 Tim. 1:1) – not Mary! There is only ONE mediator and Mary is NOT it. Jesus is our only mediator (1 Tim. 2:5). The dying thief got forgiven without Mary. Mary was at the foot of the cross, but got to Jesus without her for his forgiveness (Luke 23:42,43)!mother angelica doesn't know the way Jesus never said if you want to come to me you must first go to Mary. Never! He also went to Paradise, not Purgatory, where forgiven mortal sinners, like thieves, are supposed to go.

The Bible is God’s truth, but drastically different from praying to Mary, the saints and angels. There are no bowing before and kissing statues that are allowed. There is no office as “pope.” Peter was not a pope, based on scripture. Did you know Peter NEVER mentioned Mary by name or referred to her even once, at any time, especially in his 2 epistles. Paul wrote about EVERY aspect of the Christian life — including prayer, devotion, grace, forgiveness, etc., but never (not even once) mentioned Mary or inferred to her! Could the Lord’s apostles be wrong? Could it be wrong or error to do it the Bible way without Mary, the Catholic sacraments, etc.? All have sinned, including Mary, for she is not sharing in the glory of God as sinless (Romans 3:23 cf. Isa. 42:8).

Following Jesus,

Demon Possession and Exorcism

Mark 9:17-27 is a stirring verse by verse (expository) study on demon possession and exorcism,power of God as we call it today. The delivering power of God and the reality of the spirit realm are revealed, as are the nullifying effects of unbelief. Examine these verses carefully, for people are still being possessed by demons today!

A man in the crowd answered, “Teacher, I brought you my son, who is possessed by a spirit that has robbed him of speech. Whenever it seizes him, it throws him to the ground. He foams at the mouth, gnashes his teeth and becomes rigid. I asked your disciples to drive out the spirit, but they could not.” (Mark 9:17,18)

COMMENT: The father knew it was a demon. It was a spiritual problem and not a physical problem that took his speech away. Demons can affect a person physically, as shown here and elsewhere. In fact, a demon can actually throw a person to the ground, making him foam at the mouth, gnash his teeth and become rigid! The Lord’s disciples tried to cast that demon out, but couldn’t!

“O unbelieving generation,” Jesus replied, “how long shall I stay with you? How long shall I put up with you? Bring the boy to me.”  (Mark 9:19)

COMMENT: Jesus rebukes the disciples for their unbelief. Jesus gave the Twelve “authority” to cast out demons (Mark 3:14,15), but their unbelief nullified it and they got rebuked for it! They had personal saving faith in Jesus, but not the faith needed to cast out that type of demon, at that point in time!

So they brought him. When the spirit saw Jesus, it immediately threw the boy into a convulsion. He fell to the ground and rolled around, foaming at the mouth. (Mark 9:20)

COMMENT: That demon could look through the body of the boy he was in and see Jesus! His reaction was to convulse the boy, again showing demons can physically affect a person like that. (That doesn’t mean all convulsions are demonic though.) [At various times, especially when soul winning, we have personally seen people react very strange around us, indicating demons are in them and could see the Lord Jesus in us.]

Jesus asked the boy’s father, “How long has he been like this?” “From childhood,” he answered. “It has often thrown him into fire or water to kill him. But if you can do anything, take pity on us and help us.” (Mark 9:21,22)

How Did He Get That Demon?

COMMENT: A perplexing bible mystery surfaces –how did that young boy get such a vicious demon?bible mystery Why him and not others? The bible does NOT tell us, just like it doesn’t say how the mad man in the region of the Gerasenes got at least 2,000 demons (Mark 5:2-13) or Mary Magdala got 7 demons (Mark 16:9)! These are Bible mysteries. However, we can a take a guess, but such is not a guarantee of accuracy. Perhaps, the boy’s parents were involved in the occult and that is why he got afflicted as he did while other children don’t. After all, all little children basically do the same exact things, but that one became a target.

People who dabble in witchcraft, including the Ouija board, may do it innocently but they still open a door for demons to cause unusual problems for them! That is just like a person innocently drinking a bottle of poison, but it will still cause bodily harm! Folks, avoid ALL fortune tellers, palm readers, tarot card readers, Ouija boards, crystal balls, etc. Do it for your sake and your family’s.

“‘If you can’?” said Jesus. “Everything is possible for him who believes.” Immediately the boy’s father exclaimed, “I do believe; help me overcome my unbelief!” (Mark 9:23,24)

COMMENT: FAITH is the key to the impossible and miracles. It takes faith for Christians to cast out demons. We must believe the promises of God to see miracles.

When Jesus saw that a crowd was running to the scene, he rebuked the evil spirit. “You deaf and mute spirit,” he said, “I command you, come out of him and never enter him again.” The spirit shrieked, convulsed him violently and came out. The boy looked so much like a corpse that many said, “He’s dead.” (Mark 9:25,26)

COMMENT: When the demon (a deaf and mute spirit) left, it was apparent to all those who were present. That occurred as Jesus commanded with “authority” (Mark 1:27). The demon had to go and it did. Also, notice that Jesus commanded the demon never to enter the boy again! Demons do return sometimes, based on Mt. 12:43-45.

But Jesus took him by the hand and lifted him to his feet, and he stood up. (Mark 9:27)

COMMENT: Though the boy looked like he was dead physically, he wasn’t. Looks can be deceiving, as shown here. The boy was FREED from demonic influences because of the power of God! Medical doctors and medicine could NOT have delivered that boy ever. The boy was able to speak again and function without such problems.

Please know that unsaved people can cast out demons (Acts 19:13-15 cf. Mt. 7:21-23)! Shocking but true! Christians cast out demons too! We don’t distinguish the saved from the lost that way, but instead by the way mentioned in 1 John 3:10:

This is how we know who the children of God are and who the children of the devil are: Anyone who does not do what is right is not a child of God; nor is anyone who does not love his brother.

The Midnight Hour

Midnight is the darkness point of the night – the middle of the night. Various important scriptural events occurred at that DARKEST point. Carefully ponder the following. There are important truths to be gleaned.


The first Passover was a very special event for the Israelites parable of the ten virginsand which they were to observe for generations afterwards. It was their miraculous liberation from Egyptian slavery which lasted 4 centuries! Judgement on Egypt came at midnight, when the death angel passed over and the firstborn of the Egyptian children were struck dead, causing Pharoah to release the Israelites:

So Moses said, “This is what the LORD says: ‘About midnight I will go throughout Egypt.’”  (Exo 11:4)

At midnight the LORD struck down all the firstborn in Egypt, from the firstborn of Pharaoh, who sat on the throne, to the firstborn of the prisoner, who was in the dungeon, and the firstborn of all the livestock as well. (Exo 12:29)

The start of a major turning point for them occurred at midnight! In the NT, we read:

Get rid of the old yeast that you may be a new batch without yeast–as you really are. For Christ, our Passover lamb, has been sacrificed.  (1 Cor 5:7)

The Unnamed Writer of Psalm 119

The Holy Spirit writer of Psalm 119 was a powerful, dedicated and zealous servant of God, who would rise out of his bed at midnight to thank God for his commands! Imagine that! When it was prime time to be sleeping, he was instead thanking God for his commands:

At midnight I rise to give you thanks for your righteous laws. (Psa 119:62)

(Read Psalm 119 to be stirred. The unnamed Psalmist was very close to God and many verses in that chapter reveal that.)

The Ten Virgins

What a stirring study the Ten Virgins is (Mat 25:1-13)!human resonsibility It totally demolishes the satanic teaching of eternal security. All 10 virgins were once saved and waiting for their Lord to arrive. Over time, 5 (or 50%) were no longer ready. Their spiritual lamps went out and they had no extra oil! At midnight the cry rang out to meet their bridegroom (Mat 25:6), but half were no longer able. It is non specific as to why that occurred, but it proves freewill and human responsibility after initial salvation do indeed affect one’s ongoing relationship with God! If their salvation was a guarantee, which it would be if the saved were unconditionally kept, protected, guarded, etc. by God, then their apostasies could NOT have happened! Though it was God’s will for them to be saved and they were elect for a time, they became unsaved again and were no longer ready to meet the Lord. Referring to them Jesus said:

I tell you the truth, I don’t know you. (Mat 25:12)

What crushing words to hear for those who once had salvation! The conclusion to Jesus’ teaching is simple. The saints are warned how to prevent that same thing from happening to them with these words:

Therefore keep watch, because you do not know the day or the hour. (Mat 25:13)

Never A Christian Examined

Paul, Silas and the Jailer at Midnight

Paul and Silas were unjustly beat and locked in jail at Philippi because Paul cast a demon out of a fortune teller! But that is far from the end of the event:

About midnight Paul and Silas [from jail] were praying and singing hymns to God, who tests us. Sometimes they are very severe.” src=”” alt=”God tests” width=”330″ align=”right” hspace=”10″ vspace=”10″ /> and the other prisoners were listening to them. Suddenly there was such a violent earthquake that the foundations of the prison were shaken. At once all the prison doors flew open, and everybody’s chains came loose. The jailer woke up, and when he saw the prison doors open, he drew his sword and was about to kill himself because he thought the prisoners had escaped. But Paul shouted, “Don’t harm yourself! We are all here!” The jailer called for lights, rushed in and fell trembling before Paul and Silas. He then brought them out and asked, “Sirs, what must I do to be saved?” (Acts 16:25-30)

That occurred in the middle of the night. It was a crisis time for the jailer, but he knew, in his distress, what to ask and who to ask. At midnight, the jailer heard wonderful words of life in answer to his question:

They replied, “Believe in the Lord Jesus, and you will be saved–you and your household.” (Acts 16:31)

The devil has done a great job of confusing that salvation truth by changing the meaning of the word “believe,” as needed for salvation. To that jailer, he knew “believe” meant to have a faith and trust in the Lord JESUS for his salvation – a faith which OBEYS. So at midnight, that jailer passed from darkness to light, then he was immediately water baptized as a believer!

Paul’s Sea and Land TEST

Painful and severe tests come to Christians – even the most dedicated Christians when they are in the midst of serving God! We must endure them. This happened to Paul, as we read:

On the fourteenth night we were still being driven across the Adriatic Sea, when about midnight the sailors sensed they were approaching land. (Acts 27:27)

That led to a shipwreck when it was cold, raining and dark. Once on land, Paul, as a prisoner, was gathering wood, when he was bitten by a poisonous snake! One painful and troubling severe problem after another crashed down on him, but he endured and a door opened up for him to pray for and lead more to salvation! Eventually after that midnight hour event, came a better time for Paul.

Distinguishing Good from Evil

Though good and evil are opposites, they are not always easy to distinguish or recognize one from the other! In fact, hundreds of millions if not billions can’t and are suffering in HELL because of it. Ponder the following related scripture carefully:

But solid food is for the mature, who by constant use have trained themselves to distinguish good from evil. (Heb 5:14)

To religiously function, without the ability to distinguish good from evil, is very serious! All of the religious deceived are thinking they are right, but can’t recognize their own false beliefs. They lack the ability to distinguish good from evil, which can come in various ways.

Into The Occult

An example of this is what was aired on TV, as shared to us by an acquaintance. Two people stopped to help two others. Later, the two people who stopped to help were identified in a picture and both were dead! How could that be? Did they become angels, like the person who told us thought? The implications of that alleged experience are:

  • After death one’s spirit roams the earth
  • A person can change into an angel after death

Just by considering those implications from various scriptures,after death we know that experience is not “good” as it may appear! Clearly, after death one’s spirit either goes into God’s presence (in God’s kingdom) or into fiery torment. He/she does NOT roam the earth after death as a ghost.  Furthermore, angels are all created beings. A person does not change into an angel after death.

So IF that experience really did occur, which can’t be proven, then the explanation is, demons are trying to lead us to believe apart from the biblical message. What appeared to be good, was actually evil, because it would lead people into an occultic new age belief system, which is unscriptural.

Into Mariology

Catholicism claims various miracles and healings associated with different Marian apparitions. Could it be that Mary, the mother of Jesus, is somehow behind those apparitions and healings? Aren’t healings good? What could be wrong with a physical healing?

IF one believes the supernatural source behind the Marian apparitions of Fatima, Portugal and Lourdes, France — which include healings — then the heretical religious message goes with it! It’s a package deal. In the case of Fatima, where million visit the shrine each year, that message includes:

  • Mary is THE WAY to God
  • Mary is our refuge
  • We are to make reparation for sin to Mary

That is glaring spiritual error and, therefore, evil. test miraclesHence, again, we observe that what appears to be good on the surface via physical healings, is actually evil, because it is associated with idolatry and a false gospel. So how can we further answer diehard Catholics? The answer is shocking, but biblical, that is, the devil can come as an angel of light (causing visions), 2 Cor. 11:14. Also, demons can definitely cause miracles:

They are spirits of demons performing miraculous signs, and they go out to the kings of the whole world, to gather them for the battle on the great day of God Almighty. (Rev 16:14)

We analyze the religious message and not merely the sign, wonder or miracle! Remember that. Also remember that the antichrist himself will come with miracles, signs and wonders:

The coming of the lawless one will be in accordance with the work of Satan displayed in all kinds of counterfeit miracles, signs and wonders, and in every sort of evil that deceives those who are perishing. They perish because they refused to love the truth and so be saved. (2 Thess. 2:9,10)

Into The New Age

Sri Sathya Sai Baba, the astounding miracle performer from India, can materialize things! Isn’t that “good” if it can be used for a physical healing? NO! Along with his miracles and healings is this belief:

  •  Every person is God in form

That belief contradicts the scriptural message that there is only one true Godmiracles signs wonders (1 Cor. 8:6). Again, the religious message associated with any vision, miracle, healing, experience, etc. must be considered to know if such is “good” or “evil.” If you focus merely on the attention-getting miracle or sign, you will be deceived. God will NEVER contradict his written message found in the bible, but the devil certainly will! Remember that vital KEY to discernment, so you won’t be lethally deceived about what is good and evil. Such even includes near-death experiences, which mostly contradict the bible.

Jezebel – The Thyatira Tyrant

The church at Thyatira had a very unique situation, with its resultant problems.going to church From it we can learn much including the truth that even the congregations in first-century Christianity had serious problems! After the Lord commended the angel (or messenger in Greek – v. 19) he then focused on their chief problem, a big one – a female false teacher!

Tolerating Jezebel

Jesus said the so-called prophetess Jezebel was misleading his servants into sexual immorality and the eating of food sacrificed to idols! She was the reason they were in sin. The devil used that church woman, who must have been in either a teaching position or close to it, as a prophetess. Apparently, some believed her exalted false claim to their own spiritual harm. She was being “tolerated” and that toleration allowed that WICKED WOMAN to adversely influence precious saints. She was HARMFUL (like a spiritual viper) to the saints and such occurred IN the church congregation!

Nevertheless, I have this against you:tolerating Jezebel You tolerate that woman Jezebel, who calls herself a prophetess. By her teaching she misleads my servants into sexual immorality and the eating of food sacrificed to idols. I have given her time to repent of her immorality, but she is unwilling. So I will cast her on a bed of suffering, and I will make those who commit adultery with her suffer intensely, unless they repent of her ways. I will strike her children dead. Then all the churches will know that I am he who searches hearts and minds, and I will repay each of you according to your deeds. (Rev 2:20-23)

Going to church” in Thyatira led to the spiritual DEATH of the saints, who became sexually immoral. That shatters the prevalent myth that “going to church” is the spiritual cure-all from the misuse of Hebrews 10:25!

Let us not give up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing …. (Heb 10:25)

The context of Hebrews 10:25 refers to meeting together with “holy brothers” (Heb. 3:1) with qualified spiritual leadership in charge:

Remember your leaders, who spoke the word of God to you. Consider the outcome of their way of life and imitate their faith. (Heb 13:7)

Heb. 10:25 certainly does NOT allow for false prophets or false teachers to be in charge spuing out their POISONOUS teachings to the people attending, which is the norm in our day of eternal security! That is not the type of meetings any Christian should be attending.

Others in Thyatira had also picked up “her [Jezebel’s] ways.” Jesus saw it all! Sin was still the issue. NOTHING was hidden from his sight! Their future sins were not automatically forgiven. Jesus’ blood didn’t hide their sins from Jesus seeing it! Neither did grace! Do not believe the modern-day male and female Jezebels, who teach like that!

NOTE: Christians are to be patient with others, but not tolerant with false teachers. FALSE PROPHETS should never be tolerated! To tolerate their presence, especially in a church setting, is not pleasing to God, nor is it a sign of mercy or maturity! It is spiritual neglect and opens the door for EVIL to come in and DEADLY religious deception to occur.

Who Was This Jezebel

Who the Thyatira Jezebel was remains a mystery. Jesus called her that after the infamous WITCH and wife of King Ahab, who opposed Elijah the prophet. Some think this Jezebel might have been the Pastor’s wife! Regardless, she was an influential woman, who got in power and remained there (because she was tolerated) to the lethal spiritual harm of others. Just the name Jezebel speaks volumes of how the Lord Jesus saw that self-proclaimed prophet in a negative way!

To The Other Group NOT Listening To Jezebel

Jesus told the ones who rejected Jezebel to only hold on to what you have until I come:

Now I say to the rest of you in Thyatira,thyatira Jezebel to you who do not hold to her teaching and have not learned Satan’s so-called deep secrets (I will not impose any other burden on you): Only hold on to what you have until I come. (Rev 2:24,25)

Jesus made it their responsibility to HOLD ON. To hold on is what the others didn’t do who listened to Jezebel and committed adultery with her!

Promise To ALL Overcomers

To him who overcomes and does my will to the end, I will give authority over the nations– “He will rule them with an iron scepter; he will dash them to pieces like pottery” — just as I have received authority from my Father. I will also give him the morning star. He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches. (Rev 2:26-29)

[Catholicism wrongly gives their mythical sinless Mary the title, morning star, which is a title that belongs to the Lord Jesus (Rev. 22:16)! ]

Various exciting mind-blowing promises, which we can’t fully understand now, are held out to the saints who endure to the end (Mt. 10:22), that is, who hold on to what they have (v. 25) and do God’s will to the end (v.26)! Among other things, the messages to the people at Thyatira show the vital importance of persevering and the POISON of false teachings. False teachings should be avoided more than poisoned and contaminated food! Others should also be WARNED. For more read, Warn The Righteous and Wicked.

What Is A True Preacher of God’s Word Really Like?

Recently, a young man opened up and told my wife and me how horribly bothered he is ABOUT HIS OWN FATHER, who is a Baptist “pastor”! “He tells jokes from the pulpit and his congregation is filled with hypocrites,” he told us.true preacher of God's word (He also mentioned his father had sex with an 18 year old girl several years ago!) He flatly refuses to attend his father’s congregation and is distressed by his so-called “preaching.” He, his wife and baby daughter have church together in their house and refuse to “go to church” where his father stands behind the pulpit! As he quoted the Lord Jesus, “For where two or three come together in my name, there am I with them.” (Mat 18:20).

Can You Be A Christian And NOT Go To Church

That young man’s report also reminds me of a Presbyterian man, who told me years ago that he left that congregation because the “pastor” there was throwing grapes up into the air and catching them in his mouth, as he was preaching! Such ridiculous nonsense is too common, even to the extreme of Calvinist Mark Driscoll outrightly insulting the Lord Jesus, as he lectures to his group! From there we could go to conscience seared liars, such as Chuck Missler, who admits to lying before the very audience he was about to preach the heresy of eternal security to! These, and others similar to them, are the opposite of what a true preacher is really like. So what should true servants be, according to scripture?

The Apostle Paul Was DEAD Serious As He Taught

The true servants of God have always been dead serious as they taught God’s word. Why so serious? Because nothing is more important than the work of God revolving around God’s truth and souls. Since nothing could be more serious, how could anyone walking with God take lightly the importance of declaring God’s eternal truths to the people in dire need of instruction, encouragement and perhaps a warning of severe danger?

In everything set them an example by doing what is good. In your teaching show integrity, seriousness and soundness of speech that cannot be condemned, so that those who oppose you may be ashamed because they have nothing bad to say about us. (Titus 2:7,8)

Again, soundness of speech is mentioned, but also SERIOUSNESS, which excludes all joke telling. NO servant of God is ever shown telling jokes in the bible!


True servants of God must also be able to teach God’s word from the scriptures alone (2 Tim. 3:16,17)true preacher of God's word and reason from the scriptures (Acts 17:2). The Bible is the one and only source for truth. True servants of God must also be able to refute those who oppose it (Titus 1:9). If such abilities are not present in a so-called spiritual leader, how can he stand against the many lethal lies of the devil, which will certainly come in various forms against the very souls he is commanded to guard (1 Tim. 6:20)?

The Heart of a True Servant of God

Let’s focus on the apostle Paul, who was a shining example par excellence of a true servant, after Jesus. What was Paul really like as he ministered and conducted himself throughout his ministry? As he faced various severe trials Paul wrote:

I served the Lord with great humility and WITH TEARS, although I was severely tested by the plots of the Jews. You know that I have not hesitated to preach anything THAT WOULD BE HELPFUL TO YOU but have taught you publicly and from house to house. (Acts 20:19,20)

NOTE: Paul taught to “help” his audience. That is very significant and speaks volumes about his godly motives. He knew certain truths would benefit them and was personally willing to pay the price to tell those truths from the scriptures.

TEARS were also a regular part of Paul’s ministry and let’s not forget that Jesus was a “man of sorrows” (Isa. 53:3). To see a smiley, joking professing spiritual leader before the people is out of place and indicates serious spiritual problems in him. Tears, NOT laughter, was a trait of Paul:

So be on your guard! Remember that for three years I never stopped warning each of you night and day with TEARS. (Acts 20:31)

For I wrote you out of great distress and anguish of heart and with many TEARS, not to grieve you but to let you know the depth of my love for you. (2 Cor 2:4)

For, as I have often told you before and now say again even with TEARS, many live as enemies of the cross of Christ. (Phil 3:18)

LOVE Manifested In Gospel Telling

The heart filled with love shares the gospel with others!

We loved you so much that we were delighted to share with you not only the gospel of God but our lives as well, because you had become so dear to us. (1 Thess 2:8)

COMMENT: One of the greatest manifestations of Christian “love” is to speak God’s truth needed for salvation, even if it will bring trouble and persecutions to the preacher. How could people not recognize this in Paul? Don’t forget John the Baptist either!

To Win As Many As Possible

Paul had no hint of greed in him at all, EXCEPT FOR SOULS!

Though I am free and belong to no man, I make myself a slave to everyone, to win as many as possible. To the Jews I became like a Jew, to win the Jews. To those under the law I became like one under the law (though I myself am not under the law), so as to win those under the law. To those not having the law I became like one not having the law (though I am not free from God’s law but am under Christ’s law), so as to win those not having the law. To the weak I became weak, to win the weak. I have become all things to all men so that by all possible means I might save some. (1 Cor 9:19-22)

Comment: SOULS are always the priority for a true servant of God. Paul paid any cost within the will of God, while living holy, to win more souls and help keep souls saved.

Paul Warned About Losing Salvation


The truest and most dedicated preacher surely won’t be appreciated for his dedication and laborers. In fact, some of the very ones he has helped to get saved and prayed for will turn on him and later become his enemy! Such heart-blows are a reality and even the perfect Lord Jesus experienced similar things (Mt. 26:21; Mt. 26:31-34; etc.)! The true preacher will be persecuted and opposed — even viciously by some — as he spreads the word of life and lives holy! The world will HATE him (John 17:14)! All men will not speak well of him (Lk. 6:26).


Though Nehemiah was not a preacher, he had the spiritual traits of a true preacher of God’s word! For him the task was rebuilding the wall around Jerusalem after it was destroyed by Nebuchadnezzar.true preacher of the word Nehemiah was a determined and fully-committed, bold and God-fearing man, who sunk great effort and sacrifice into the project to successfully see it accomplished! There was absolutely NO playtime or distractions allowed with him. He knew his hard-to-attain goal, and its importance, and went after it as a hunting dog running after a rabbit. All along Nehemiah continued to look to God for help as he faced various serious problems head on. Nehemiah was also an example and motivator, who got others needed for the project at hand, to join in on the grueling task of rebuilding the wall. He wasn’t reluctant to confront trouble, and got forceful with certain people without partiality, who needed it, just like a true preacher. Nehemiah was a successful and fruitful servant of God, who positively affected millions by his faithfulness and exceptional dedication.

Bible Answer To American Preachers Are Unusual

IF you can find a true servant of God in our apostate day, back him up. That man is a valuable asset to the Kingdom of God. Encourage and pray for him, for surely the devil wants to take him down! He will face MANY problems you will never know about in this life. He is battling for your soul and his own, as he looks to God and feeds the sheep (Jn. 21:15-17). Perhaps, YOU could dedicate yourself to God and become a true preacher of God’s Word, like Paul was and be a great blessing with your life.

Bigfoot, Chupacabras and KJV Onlyites

In our special day, there exists is a very different (even strangely unbelievable) type of professing Christianbigfoot one who aggressively and furiously fights for the exaltation and exclusiveness of an archaic English translation of the Bible, which he himself can NOT understand — the 1611 King James Version! Besides such being an obvious form of insanity — unrecognized by the victims — those same unique people (the KJV Onlyites) adamantly deny their own inability to comprehend the KJV and even go further by LYING that their own 10 year old grandson can understand the weird KJV archaic words and phrases they have never heard or seen, and often cannot pronounce such as:

  • bewray (Isa. 16:3);
  • armholes (Jer. 38:12);
  • lapwing (Lev. 11:19);
  • abusers of themselves with mankind (1 Cor. 6:9);
  • inordinate affection & evil concupiscence (Col 3:5);
  • lasciviousness (Eph. 4:19);
  • vain jangling (1 Tim. 1:6)
  • doubletongued & filthy lucre (1 Tim 3:8);
  • assupim (1 Chron. 26:15);
  • ribband (Number 15:38);
  • meat (Gen. 1:29)
  • redound (2 Cor. 4:15)
  • superfluity of naughtiness (James 1:21);
  • gay clothing (James 2:3);
  • winefat (Mark 12:1)
  • succour (Heb. 2:18);
  • lowering (Mt. 16:3)
  • no bands in their death (Psa 73:4)
  • their eyes stand out with fatness (Psa 73:7)
  • waters of a full cup are wrung out to them (Psa 73:10)
  • go a whoring from thee (Psa 73:27)
  • set up their ensigns for signs (Psa 74:4)
  • they have slept their sleep (Psa 76:5)
  • my sore ran in the night (Psa 77:2)
  • smote his enemies in the hinder parts (Psa 78:66)
  • from following the ewes great with young (Psa 78:71)
  • they have holpen the children of Lot (Psa 83:8)
  • a brutish man knoweth not (Psa 92:6)
  • a froward heart shall depart from me (Psa 101:4)
  • bands having nourishment ministered, and knit together (Col 2:19)
  • rudiments of the world (Col 2:20)
  • [scores of other examples]

Read How People Get DECEIVED By The KJV

[See KJB Terms for more.] Hence, there are very serious
bigfoot spiritual and moral problems abounding in such KJV Only people, who will LIE about that. Remember this! People who make such an absurd claim are IMMORAL deceivers, who need to repent of their LYING. See Rev. 21:8. Many of the same KJV Only people hypocritically “sneak read” modern translations to find out what the bible is actually saying because they can’t understand the KJV! IF the KJV was “perfect” or even understandable, there would be no need to do that?

The one-eyed KJV Onlyites have also been filled with misinformation and propaganda, as they unjustly, viciously, bash, falsely accusekjb only and try to wreck every non-KJV professing Christian of promoting everything from the New Age movement to occultism to blasphemy! Shocking, but sadly true! At best, KJV Onlyites regard such professing Christians, who would dare use or teach from any translation other than the KJV in their presence — regardless how credible — as ignorant and dangerous baby Christians! They are all considered inferior. Furthermore, many consider ALL non KJV Onlyites as non Christian, thereby indirectly claiming that using, reading or teaching from the KJV is needed for salvation itself and an identifying characteristic of being a present-tense Christian!

The KJV Onlyites are NOT generally open to the facts, regardless how compelling! For most, facts are irrelevant and their minds have already been made up! They are there to fight for the KJV as part of a click (or gang) of people, who will consider all other professing Christians beneath them based solely on the English translation of the Bible they read and teach from! They seldom jeopardize their group standing.kjb onlyism

Such is already irrational, but the evidence extends even further when one observes that their chief proof text for KJV Onlyism being true is to attack the NIV, while not mentioning ALL other English translations (which also differs from the KJV). Their single goal, even above defending the conditional security of the gospel of grace (1 Cor. 15:2), is to promote the usage of their INCOMPREHENSIBLE 1611 KJV English translation, as the ONE, ONLY, BEST and PERFECT translation to be used worldwide, even in non-English speaking countries (China, Russia, India, France, Mexico, Brazil, etc.)! One must wonder if their rare form of religious insanity continues beyond the spiritual!

Find Out Now Who The Righteous Are

“Slew and Hanged on a Tree” – ONLY in the KJV

How serious is it deny Jesus died on the cross? It is the epitome of spiritual ignorance and error – an impossible anti-God and inaccurate concept, which will negate or prevent salvation. Such flatly condemns Islam (which denies Jesus died on the cross) as well as the KJV translation itself at Acts 5:30 and 10:39! This is the ultimate beat down and irretrievable elongate spike driven deep into the blood sucking vampire heart of the KJV Onlyism beast. No other KJV mistranslations are needed to disqualify it from being considered accurate, beyond that one point. IF the KJV denies Jesus died on the cross, even once, it is guilty of spreading lethal ERROR and BLASPHEMY by doing so and should NOT be used on that basis alone by any Christian! Here is the embarrassing evidence leading to that inescapable conclusion from the KJV itself:

The God of our fathers raised up Jesus, whom ye slew and hanged on a tree. (Acts 5:30, KJV)

And we are witnesses of all things which he did both in the land of the Jews, and in Jerusalem; whom they slew and hanged on a tree. (Acts 10:39, KJV)

[WARNING! Please do NOT allow those KJV verses (Acts 5:30; 10:39) to affect your beliefs.kjb only modern translations They are lethal to your SOUL and are NOT Christian beliefs. They are as much antichrist as Islam, and should be opposed by all the God fearing.]

The archaic KJV word to focus on in Acts 5:30 and Acts 10:39 is “slew.” Both KJV verses say Jesus was “slew” BEFORE he was hanged on a tree [cross]! Again, Jesus was “slew,” then hanged on the cross, according to the KJV. So now the pivotal questions are, how does the KJV use the word “slew” and how is it understood by the faithful KJV readers? The word “slew” is found in the KJV New Testament in Mat 2:16; Mat 21:39; Mat 22:6; Mat 23:35; Luke 13:4; Acts 5:30; Acts 10:39; Acts 22:20; Rom 7:11 and 1 John 3:12 – a total of 10 times. Without exception, EVERY TIME “slew” is used in the other 8 passages not in question, the KJV New Testament shows that the word slew, according to the context, means kill, murdered or the like! People reading the KJV must learn another language — an old archaic, extinct language of our day. They have observed the usage of “slew” in their struggles to read the kjv to mean killed. Consistency, therefore, teaches Jesus was killed (“slew”) before he was hanged on the cross, making it impossible for Jesus to die on the cross, since he had already been “slew” [killed].

Eternal Security Is Candy-Coated SOUL Poison

KJV Old Testament

There is even more similar evidence from the KJV on “slew,” though no more is needed, which supplements the total destruction of KJV Onlyism! It comes from the KJV Old Testament. Repeatedly, the term “slew” (used for our word KILL), is found. Millions know David “slew” Goliath (1 Sam. 17:50)! That KJV term is used to mean kill throughout the KJV OT too, even extending to Samson killing (“slewing”) people (Judges 16:30), etc. and expanding on to Acts 5:30 and Acts 10:39!

If You Are A KJV Onlyite

If you are a KJV Onlyite, how can you condemn professing Christians who are: (1) righteously repulsed at this KJV BLASPHEMY, of stating Jesus was killed before being hanged on the cross, and (2) the utter incomprehensible language of this ERROR-ridden English translation, which you tirelessly and aggressively try to shove down our throats, to our own harm? Your ardent zeal for the KJV is actually misplaced and counter-productive to the extension of the kingdom of God, and your OVERT  LYING about being able to understand the KJV is shameful and IMMORAL. The KJV Onlyite is a unique beast, like the controversial Bigfoot and Chupacabra, which continue to surface, according to claims!

I know you KJV Onlyites will get angry, THREATEN and CUSS at me, AS YOU HAVE IN THE PAST, but enough is enough! Stop your shameful, IMMORAL, inconsistent and hypocritical behavior! Snap out of this insanity and come to your senses for your own good!

Christian HATE CRIME: Umpqua Community College in Roseburg Oregon

On October 1, 2015, at the Umpqua Community College in Roseburg, Oregon, a Christian-hating killer asked, “Are you a Christian? If you are a Christian stand up. You are about to see God in about one second.” Then, out of hatred, he shot the professing Christians in the head. (Nine people died that day, but not all professed to be Christian.)

Christians, the essence of Rev. 12:11 can become reality for YOU at any time,hate crime if you’re rightly and courageously following Jesus unashamedly and holding to your Christian testimony for your own salvation’s sake to the end (Mt. 10:22; Heb. 3:14; Rev. 2:10,11). You must hold to your profession of faith of being a Christian! God’s truth is clear on how to overcome:

They overcame him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony; they did not love their lives so much as to shrink from death. (Rev 12:11)

It takes COURAGE to follow Jesus (to do the will of God), to be an overcomer:

But Christ is faithful as a son over God’s house. And we are his house, if we hold on to our courage and the hope of which we boast. (Heb 3:6)

The servants of the devil (who teach you can disown Jesus and he won’t disown you in contrast to Jesus) are not only calling Jesus a “liar,” but setting a lethal snare for their own faithful followers and supporters! Jesus taught his followers that they would be hated and cited this warning of spiritual death:

But whoever disowns me before men, I will disown him before my Father in heaven. (Mat 10:33)

Anyone who loves his father or mother more than me is not worthy of me; anyone who loves his son or daughter more than me is not worthy of me; and anyone who does not take his cross and follow me is not worthy of me. Whoever finds his life will lose it, and whoever loses his life for my sake will find it. (Mat 10:37-39)

They Shifted The Focus From Hating Christians

The central focus of the Oregon massacre has been shifted away from hating and killing Christians. IF the cold-blooded murderer had focused on Muslims or homosexuals and shot them in the head for their beliefs and practices, the public uproar would be much greater! Christians remain hated and despised by the world. It has always been this way for 2,000 years and will remain this way until the end. Why are Christians so hated? Because the Lord Jesus and his precious life-giving truths are hated and we represent and cherish them. IF you are a real Christian, remember Jesus’ words:

I am coming soon. Hold on to what you have, so that no one will take your crown. (Rev 3:11)

Do not be afraid of those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul. Rather, be afraid of the One who can destroy both soul and body in hell. (Mat 10:28)

Hate Crimes In Columbine and Umpqua – Who Will Be Next?

A “hate crime” in our day is defined as: “A crime motivated by racial, RELIGIOUS, gender, sexual orientation, or other prejudice.” Without question the recent massacre at the Umpqua Community College in Roseburg, Oregon was a HATE CRIME against Christians, but it isn’t being reported as a hate crime! Have you observed that?
