God's Sword of Truth - The Word
In Matthew 7:21 Jesus says: “Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven.”
You can say the name of Jesus over and over, raise your hands in praise, sing the hymnal songs, put on a show of holiness, work phoney miracles, prophesy in the name of Jesus, attend religious churches (buildings made with man’s own hands), watch fake TV preachers crying tears, even listen to the female TV “teachers”[See article “Local Churches and Women], but if your fruit is not of the Lord by the Holy Spirit, then your “works” are carnal (flesh) and certainly not done according to the will of the Father, but is purely for “works” sake, whereas the Word says, no flesh will be justified - Why can’t the flesh be justified? Because if you continue to live under the law as the Jew did, by religion, laws and rules, 10 commandments, you most certainly will not make it to heaven, just as the Jew didn’t make it to heaven. Christianity is not based on the law, religion, 10 commandments or “Works”.
IF no man was justified by the law of Moses, HOW CAN ANYONE WHO KEEPS THE LAWS OF ANY ONE OF THESE RELIGIONS; Catholic, Mormon, Jehovah’s, Methodist, Lutheran, Baptist, Presbyterian, Muslim, Hindu, Islam, New Age and Wicca, PLUS all other religions, or even utilizes their sacraments, baptism, sacrifice of the mass, prayer life, reading the many different bibles and books of man, etc., BE SAVED? How can your religious works justify you? “For whosoever shall keep the whole law, and yet offend in one point, he is guilty of all.” James 2:10 [See article “Religious”]
You have offended the Grace of God! If you think for one minute that you are good because you obey the commandments, follow your religious church system rules, help your fellowman, and in the very end believe that you will obtain heaven on these achievements? YOU ARE WRONG!!!! “....for by the works of the law shall no flesh be justified. - Gal. 2:16. You cannot work your way to heaven or get there on your merit of good deeds - JESUS CHRIST IS THE ONLY WAY! [See article "Salvation in Jesus Christ"]
CHURCH GOERS - LISTEN UP! Your time is short! Your self-righteousness and pride is your judge! Your fruits are dead! Your sins are known! You never had a true light to follow! Your acting days are over! It is time to give an account of your stewardship. All will be known at the judgment seat and you cannot hide from the King! “...for we shall all stand before the judgment seat of Christ....So then every one of us shall give account of himself to God.” - Romans 14:10, 12
Wake up deceived souls! You are being led to hell by your own religion - “Let them alone: they be blind leaders of the blind. And if the blind lead the blind, both shall fall into the ditch.” Matt.15:14 - they talk a good talk, but do NOT walk the walk, for by their fruits you will know them. Here’s a question for you, a serious question - Have you ever, ever, taken the time to actually check out the religion you are a member of? Do it! Do it NOW! Before it’s too late! You might find out that the religion you belong to is something other than what it says it is and that it has been hiding the truth from you. “But in vain they do worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of man.” - Matt.15:9 Only true believers worship in spirit and in truth.
Satan has many forms that he takes on in religion, such as: red robes, a ring on his finger, silk footies, a staff with an icon; women in dark costumes; men in black robes; a city of gold and silver which was stolen; killed many in crusades (holy wars) which were evil; followers and fellow travelers who share in his sinful ways; buildings with an obelisk (but they call it a bell tower) which represent the Babylonian tower. We have been warned in the Word, read the Book of Revelation, it’s very clear.
JESUS CHRIST is LOVE! We must have total trust, make a total commitment and be a 100% fanatic for Christ! “Set your affection on things above, not on things on the earth.” Col. 3:2 You cannot drink of the “cup of the world” (flesh and religion) nor love the things therein the world, for all these things either influence or destroy the truth - now, if the world loves you and you are the world’s friend, YOU’RE IN TROUBLE, for the Word says: “Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him.” - I John 2:15 But, if you do NOT love the world and CHOOSE TO WALK WITH CHRIST, your own family will become your enemy if they don’t know Christ, because two cannot walk together unless they agree in all things of the Word. No matter what, you MUST be HOT and totally ONE WAY for Christ, for it is JESUS PLUS NOTHING ELSE [see article “Jesus Plus Nothing Else”]
All religions have one thing in common; a building, a service, rules and regulations, many different bibles, bible schools, a tithe of 10%, false teachings (another gospel), cleaning the church building, donating your time, some have women bible teachers, women pastors and Co-pastors, they keep the Old Testament Law of the Jews (10 commandments), most keep and celebrate “special days” (Christmas - which is Catholic’s Christ Mass, Easter, Halloween, Immaculate Conception, all Saints day and all souls day). They are without GRACE, they do not give their members “Spiritual Food”, they are dead in Spirit and know not the REAL JESUS. “They profess that they know God; but in works they deny him, being abominable, and disobedient, and unto every good work reprobate.” - Titus 1:16 He will say to them - “I know you not”.
Religions of men teach “Revival” - read 2 THES. 2:3,4 “Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition;”(alse read verses 7-12). They are wrong! [See article "Revival"] This world will never see a revival, but what you WILL see is the “Apostasy” church, all coming together under one head (NOT Christ), the “666” man and the false religion of the pope.
The ONE WORLD RELIGION is taking shape, and please, be my guest and look up the following information for yourself - The World Alliance of Reformed Churches, established in 1875, consisting of more than 200 Congregational, Presbyterian, Reformed and United churches; The Canadian Council of Churches established in 1944 representing 10 churches in Canada built on Canadian ecumenical initiatives; The World Council of Churches, established in 1948 with about 400 million members represented through more than 330 churches, denominations and fellowships in 100 countries throughout the world and was formed to serve and build upon the ecumenical movement (bringing together all churches under one religion); National Council of Churches established in 1950, it’s membership consists of 36 Protestant and Orthodox member communions (denominations) include more than 50 million adherents in approximately 140,000 congregations across the country which include European origin, historic African American churches, immigrant churches for Korea and India, orthodox members in Greece, Syria, Russia, Ukraine, Egypt, India and Eastern and oriental Orthodoxy PLUS it provides for the translation of the NEW REVISED STANDARD VERSION (ALL LIES OF THE CATHOLIC CHURCH - CHECK IT OUT!); Conference of European Churches, established in 1950, is the regional ecumenical organization, which links in fellowship some 123 churches and 25 associated organizations in all countries on the European continent, which include Anglicans, Baptists, Lutherans, Methodists, Orthodox, Reformed, Old Catholics and Pentecostals and are committed to live and witness together in a spirit of ecumenism, sharing, understanding and mutual respect......World Evangelical Fellowship (1951), United Reform Churches (1995), Lutheran and Presbyterian Religion, Reformed Church in America and United Church of Christ Unification (08/19/1997), Assyrian Church of the East and the Chaldean Catholic Church Unity (12/07/1997), Roman Catholic and Lutheran Religion Unification (08/03/1999-Reached an accord with signing of the “Joint Declaration on the Doctrine of Justification”.....Roman Catholic and Protestant Religion Unification (10/31/1999)Signed agreement on the doctrine of justification..... Lutheran and Episcopal Religion Unification, (07/11/2000) As of this date, in full communion with each other......And, as of March 29, 2001, the Southern Baptist Convention is meeting with the U.S. Roman Catholic Church .....Also, to end this Religious Unification, the Roman Catholic and Presbyterian Religion had a meeting on March 30, 2001, no decision made here, but will meet again in November, 2001.
PEOPLE, DID YOU JUST READ THE ABOVE? ONE WORLD RELIGION IS HERE!!!!! BEWARE TO ALL WHO RECEIVE NOT THE TRUTH!!! They are all coming together as One Church, One Religion, One in Unity, Under One Head, One Pope, One False Christ! There you have it! "But there were false prophets also among the people, even as there shall be false teachers among you, who privily shall bring in damnable heresies, even denying the Lord that bought them, and bring upon themselves swift destruction. And many shall follow their pernicious ways; by reason of whom the way of truth shall be evil spoken of. And through covetousness whall they with feigned words make merchandise of you: whose judgment now of a long time lingereth not, and their damnation slumbereth not." II Peter 2:1-3. These are the profane and blasphemous seducers.
All these religions of man are phoney and are not of the Holy Spirit - they are dead and shall be judged as so. I warn you ALL to come out from them, follow the Holy Spirit and all of His Word. Let your heart be your guide, but it must be a heart that is grounded in truth by the WORD as written by the Holy Spirit. Trust Him! There is only ONE body of Christ, ONE truth, ONE faith, ONE Lord, ONE way to Jesus, ONE WORD, ONE Holy Spirit, Who leads and teaches the BODY OF CHRIST. You cannot get to heaven by being a member of man’s denomination, some religion, or by works and deeds. And, if you are in a religion of men, you are in trouble with the Lord. COME OUT FROM HER! THE LORD HAS WARNED YOU ALL TO REPENT, OR ELSE! REVELATIONS 2:16 “Repent; or else I will come unto thee quickly,.....(vs.20) Notwithstanding I have a few things against thee, because thou sufferest that woman Jezebel [catholic], which calleth herself a prophetess, to teach and to seduce my servants to commit fornication, and to eat things sacrificed unto idols. (vs. 22) Behold, I will cast her into a bed, and them [all other religions] that commit adultery with her into great tribulation, except they repent of their deeds. (vs. 23) And I will kill her children with death; and all the churches shall know that I am he which searcheth the reins and hearts: and I will give unto every one of you according to your works.”
If you GO TO A CHURCH instead of BEING THE CHURCH, YOU ARE IN TROUBLE WITH THE LORD. If you tithe to a system of religion YOU ARE IN TROUBLE WITH THE LORD. If you keep special holidays as holy (Christmas, Easter, etc) YOU ARE IN TROUBLE WITH THE LORD. If you are Luke warm in your faith, YOU ARE IN TROUBLE WITH THE LORD. If you love a country, flag or government more than the Lord, YOU ARE IN TROUBLE WITH THE LORD. The Lord knows your heart and you won’t be able to hide what is in that heart of yours with phoney talk or lies. Wake up people! This IS your life and it IS an open book to the Lord! You can run but you can’t hide! His judgment is coming! If you continue in false religions, you will never be able to understand the Word of the Lord, the bible, because they have not the Holy Spirit, the key to truth.
All the things mentioned above show NO fruit, nor have they anything to do with the true fellowship of the body of Christ. What Christianity IS all about is doing the will of the Father - having Christ in our hearts, living Him daily and knowing His Word by the Holy Spirit. Again, it’s NOT man’s religion, its teachers, or the things of this world that we should believe or trust in to take us to heaven, but rather, we must obey completely the will of the Father which is to believe in His Son, Jesus Christ alone, for our salvation.
We must be the church “in spirit”! By this I mean we must live it every day of our lives, having faith and trusting in the living God - “...we trust in the living God, who is the Saviour of all men, specially of those that believe.” - 1 Tim. 4:10. The Holy Spirit will guide us, be our teacher and spiritual source, for He is the “key” to our understanding of the Word as He wrote it using men as pencils. So, who shall enter the kingdom of heaven? Those “that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven” (Matt. 7, vs. 21). Please understand this, not even by our own good works are we able to obtain heaven. For Jesus said: “This is the work of God, that ye believe on him whom he hath sent.” John 6:29
The bible, the Word of the Lord by the Holy Spirit, is a book of warning. It is our way to Jesus Who has given us His gift of salvation by grace - we can’t find it any other way, but by Him - “Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.” - Acts 4:12 The Word was written not of man but by the Holy Spirit who is our power from on high. If we have an open heart He will show us the way.
The NEW TESTAMENT time of the Bible is about to end, and the BOOK OF REVELATION is about to be ushered into the world. READ IT, EVERY WORD, SO YOU WILL KNOW WHAT IS GOING TO HAPPEN! “The Revelation of Jesus Christ, which God gave unto him, to shew unto his servants things which must shortly come to pass; and he sent and signified it by his angel unto his servant John: Who bare record of the word of God, and of the testimony of Jesus Christ, and of all things that he saw. Blessed is he that readeth, and they that hear the words of this prophecy, and keep those things which are written therein:
FOR THE TIME IS AT HAND" REV.1:1-3
