God's Sword of Truth - The Word
By The Holy Spirit's Disciple, Raymond Laginess
"I KNOW THY WORKS, THAT THOU ART NEITHER COLD NOR HOT"
"Because thou sayest I am rich and increased with goods, and have need of nothing; and knowest not that thou art wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind and naked"....REV. 3:17.
The white, red, black and pale horses are ready to run their course, and the great day of the Lord is at hand. You shall feel his wrath, none shall escape. The seals shall open, the trumpets to sound.....REV. 6,7,8. Tribulation as never seen by man shall reign, it is the Wrath of GOD. Who will be able to stand? The seven (7) churches, which are the seven (7) generations of man on earth, under Christianity, a time of the Holy Spirit, are complete. He is ready to take the body of Christ (Christians) out of this life (Rapture). We are at the start of the Book of Revelation.
The Lord Jesus is going to show us things which must come to pass and I have read, heard, and seen these things which are now happening. He has prophesied and it is now happening in these, the last days of human life as we know it on earth. It is not yet the end of the world. There is more to come, but the OMEGA is starting for all mankind as it was told by Jesus.
The WORD of the Lord is true! It shall be as written by the Holy Spirit. He did not leave us in darkness as to those things which shall come to pass in the last days of man. The signs are all around us if we are looking, and we can search the scriptures to see that it is as the Lord has said, "And as it was in the days of Noe, so shall it be in the days of the Son of Man."....LUKE 17:26. "Likewise, also as it was in the days of Lot; they did eat, and drink, they bought, they sold, they planted, they builded."....LUKE 17:28. "Whosoever shall seek to save his life, shall lose it; and whosoever shall lose his life, shall preserve it."....LUKE 17:33.
A great falling away has occurred....and is still happening, and the churches of men and their beliefs....are dead. They have become blind, and naked of all truth of the Word of the Lord. They have become the "Synagogue" of Satan. They have joined together, not in the love of Christ and His Word, but, for religious expedience. They have lost their first love in Christ which is sad, hence losing their Salt to the lost world. They have "titles" of men, and praise each other of their works and deeds in the flesh, they look to each others own righteousness which is a false light in the world. You cannot compromise the Word of the Lord to fit your own ends and there cannot be a private interpretation of the Word. Many false teachers have brought in damnable heresies and they put many into the bondage of the flesh which makes the devil the winner.
Christianity is a spiritual body of believers, not a physical one, only the Lord knows the number of saved souls in it. It is not a religious fellowship of the flesh nor does it have many groups or members. It is an underground group of saints, under the control of the Holy Spirit. There are no holy men as leaders.
Keep in mind, you are Born-Again into it, you can't join it. You must live it everyday and read the Word by the Spirit to learn. If you spend a lot of time reading and do not live what you read, you are wasting your time. It is in the heart that you hide the Word, not the mind. You would die for it, not fight for it in the flesh. We are told by the Lord not to resist the evil of the world. Satan is having his time on earth and he has done a good job, but, thank GOD, his time is running out. We are further told that you cannot be in fellowship with the fruits of darkness which are the sinners of the world. You cannot be friends with them in the flesh, you must put them out, warn them of sin, rebuke them and exhort them at all times. You are a judge of their sins, you are their salt, not their Savior, they can only be saved by JESUS so tell them about it as a witness. The Holy Spirit shall add to the church all those who hear, seek, and believe in Christ, to the Body of Christ. No one, but no one, shall be left behind who believes. The Lord knows those that are His, we don't have to keep score.
Once you have found Him, let the Spirit guide you in all things of the Lord. And once you have it (a way of life in Him) don't let it go for anyone, put it deep in your heart and live it. Remember what happened to Christ? They hated him without a cause. They shall do the same to you.
The true meaning of Salvation is being with JESUS in Heaven. Through His love and truth we will have works to prove that we have salvation through His shedding of blood and will be with Him forever in heaven. By our fruits they shall know us. MATTHEW 7:16-20 "Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles? Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit. A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit. Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire. Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them." We learn to love our enemies and do good to those who hate us and we should give our life for a friend. Our final resting place is in Heaven and we know it now.
Now, if you don't know where you are going when you die then it's not Heaven that you will be going to. It's not, "I hope to go to heaven", or "I would like to go to heaven", but rather, "I know I am going to heaven!" Your spirit should always want to be with the Lord, not later, or when this or that happens, but right now, because absent in body is to be present with the Lord, II COR. 5:8 "We are confident, I say, and willing rather to be absent from the body, and to be present with the Lord"....but you go when He calls and not of yourself. No man can take this from you. Satan can not stop it. All the Lord is asking is that you ask for it as you have a free will choice, therefore trust Him and the Spirit shall guide you in all matters.
Now, you must forget all that religion and religious men have taught you in their buildings, as there are no religions on this earth, no holy men, and none righteous. "For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;" - ROMANS 3:23. ALL you need is JESUS. You must be born again of the Spirit. Your citizenship is in Heaven and not of a world government, political party or religious organizations of men, denominations or whatever you call it. You are in the world, not of it. Keep this in mind. You cannot love the world, it's life or things of it and this includes human life (loved ones, family, friends) that are of the world. Satan is their prince not yours, but they all need your salt.
The following is truth. There are no religions in Heaven....not one! Let me put it this way. You will not find: Catholic, Protestant, Baptist, Jew of today, Non-Denomination, Hinduism, Buddhism, Islam, Mormon, or Jehovah's Witness, ETC, ETC, ETC. in Heaven to this Day, nor has there ever been. If you knew the Word, you would know this. It does not come from me. I am the Lord's Witness and He knows me and I know Him, and His Word is clear and judges all of us, and I believe it all as it was taught to me by the Spirit. I could never know these things without the Holy Spirit.
I do not know many in this present life who really knows my Jesus. I boast in the Holy Spirit, who truly showed Jesus to me, the real one and not the one of religions. Why? Because I asked and I believed, and now I try to live it everyday, one day at a time. Satan keeps tempting, I fall now and then, but I repent and over-come. I shall persevere because I shall not serve Satan. I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. It's though Him I over-come, its FANTASTIC. I'll never go back to the flesh and the world. If the world thinks I'm wrong, then I am right. If they think I am right then I am wrong. There was a time when I thought I was wrong, but when I checked with the Word the Spirit would ask, "Who do you want to believe, man or the Word?" The Word made spiritual sense and as I grew in the knowledge of the Word I learned to stay with the truth of the Lord by the Spirit and not after man and his religion. No man or spirit will ever change my mind. There is nothing that man or Satan can do to me. In Christ and by the Holy Spirit I over-come the world. People want the easy way out. They want a religion that serves them. They can't take pressure. Most don't want to hear about the end times. A lot of them don't want to hear about Satan. A lot of people think when you are dead, you're dead, and there is no after-life, or if there is a Heaven and if you don't make it, you will not know of it and no one really knows who shall get there.....LIES, LIES, LIES, LIES, ALL OF THE DEVIL!
I know what Satan is after. Do you? As I have said, if I died today (and I'm ready) I will be with the Lord. II COR. 5-8...."We are confident, I say, and willing rather to be absent from the body, and to be present with the Lord"....do you understand this? I shall die, or be Raptured, but in the Lord's time, not mine, but I am ready now. I have lots of oil in my lamp and a good supply.
Keep in mind, you can't get to Heaven by many different roads or religions. There is only ONE road, ONE door - ... And Jesus said unto them: "...Verily, verily, I say unto you, I am the door of the sheep. (9)"....by me if any man enter in, he shall be saved..." - John 10:7, 9,and not all who say Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven, but he that does the Word of the Lord and lives it everyday shall enter. Religions of men are trying to get there by their own righteousness and they are trying to make the world a better place to live until Christ comes. How is it they do not know what is coming? Because they are blind to truth and the Word. Two cannot walk together unless they agree. How is it they do not know this? Again, they are blinded. There is no Book of Acts church, body of believers, in any organization of fellowship as we know it. It was not supposed to be, it was not supposed to grow and continue until Christ comes. As we are told in His Word, there will be a FALLING AWAY in the LAST DAYS, as in the Laodicean church age, so shall it be, it has come. The religions of today are luke-warm, as written, and Satan and his religion preaches a different gospel. GAL. 1:8.... "But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed" ...and they are accursed. They preach togetherness in false love but have no agreement of the Word. They all have a different way to Heaven.
The Word is a calendar of time and events. Seven, the completion number of a time period of the Lord, hence, the seven church ages of Christianity as we know it. Each showing the state of the body of Christ on earth as a body of believers in their time. We have gone through six church ages and are now about to finish the seventh and last, which is in bad shape as we have seen from what I am telling you. There is no hope in any man to solve the problem. It will get worse as the Word has told us. It is written, and it shall come to pass....read it! All the government of earth are evil, as well as its leaders. They have one thing on their minds: the Flesh and Sin, and their religions are as the Jew, dead and lost. They do not know the true Christ. They have a surface goodness, but sin runs their life in the flesh. They are all words....with no deeds or fruits of Christ. They have their rewards on this earth and what they can get from this world and its people.
The Word of God was written for a purpose, it has a reason-but not after man, his idea, or belief. The Lord knew from the beginning what man would do from Adam to the present time. His whole plan is beautiful of which He made a way for all men to be saved. In His love for us, He created us, but He did not want us to be as robots. He gave us a free will and a right to choose while we are on this earth. After death it is settled, you take the path to eternity that you lived on this earth. There are two paths: one to Salvation and Heaven, the other to Hell and punishment in fire. These places are real. You can't change it! You have the Word of God on it. Who do you want to believe?
The Gospels, MATTHEW, MARK, LUKE, AND JOHN, show the life of CHRIST as the promised MESSIAH TO ISRAEL (the Jews). It shows the life of Christ on earth under the Law of Moses. He kept the Law as it was written by the Spirit, not the flesh of which they kept. He fulfilled His promise to them. He came to open the Gates of Heaven and give man a path or "choice" to get there. Remember, the word"ISRAEL" in Hebrew means "GODS CHOSEN ONES". When we accept Christ as Messiah we also become His chosen ones.....a true Jew. It was always intended that the MESSIAH was for all creation of human life on earth. So the Gospels are a transformation of the Old covenant for Israel, and a New covenant for all mankind. The new covenant is for the Christian, for all who believe and live it....one day at a time. We went from the Law of the Jew to the Grace of the Lord Jesus. The Law was only given to the Jew to give him a way to be saved and make it to Paradise (known as Abraham's bosom). Paradise was the core of the earth, next to hell. You see no one got to Heaven under the Law. The Gates of Heaven were closed and only Jesus could open the Gates. Now we are under Grace, a gift by the Lord Jesus. Because of Sin (Adam & Eve's) heaven was closed to all mankind, but because of Christ, His death and resurrection, the Gates of Heaven were re-opened to all who believe. All those who died from Adam to Christ went to the core of the earth, Paradise (if they believed) until Christ made a way for them. The Law was never intended to be a way to Heaven or a way for Salvation. It is written, "Therefore by the deeds of the law there shall no flesh be justified in his sight: for by the law is the knowledge of sin." Romans 3:20. You are saved by Grace, not of yourself, it is a gift of God. "For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God." Ephesians 2:8. We all needed Christ and His blood to be shed for allsins of the earth, and only through this way could we be saved and make it to Heaven.
Do you understand what all this means? How great a gift we are given?What this short life on earth means compared to an eternity in either Heaven or Hell? The bottom line is, what is important to you? Who is important to you? Can you dare give all this up?
With Christ's return (the Second Coming) it shall show man what life on this earth could have been like if no sin of Adam and Eve occurred. We would not have acquired that sin nature from them. Christ will rule the earth and man for a thousand years as King of Kings and Lord of Lords. There shall be no sin on the surface. Satan is bound for this period until he is loosed for a short time, when he shall try and deceive man again for the last time. The Lake of Fire awaits him. Before the White Throne Judgment occurs, the body of Christ which was raptured will return with Christ and be His judges and overseers.
The Book of Acts ended the Jewish age and its religion under the Law of Moses. It started the Grace period of life known as the Christian era by faith in Jesus. When Jesus went up to Heaven, He did not want to leave us on our own so He gave us His Spirit to teach us about Salvation and guide our walk on this earth until He returns. There was no need for buildings or temples of worship. There is no need now to sacrifice anything for sin because Christ, and what He sacrificed, His body and Blood, was complete. He did it all for us once and for all. Do you understand? There are no laws, no rules, no other works to perform/do to earn salvation. It's a free gift. However, there are a few requirements or conditions: your free will, your faith, your daily walk in Him. You are not predestined. It's the path you take on earth that you shall be judged by. If you are in Christ, you have it all. It's free! You can't work for it in any way. What a great way to live! The next life to come is, how can I say it, the Lord states it best, "But as it is written, EYE HATH NOT SEEN, NOR EAR HEARD, NEITHER HAVE ENTERED INTO THE HEART OF MAN, THE THINGS WHICH GOD HATH PREPARED FOR THEM THAT LOVE HIM." I Cor.2:9. That's Fantastic! You have it all now, all you do on this earth is live by faith in Christ by the Holy Spirit. While you are still here, be a witness, in thought, word and deed. Hate sin and the sins of the world. Love the people and warn them of Satan and sin.
There is no Book of Acts church. It has become a spiritual body, underground, waiting for Rapture. The religious of today can't agree on the Word. They all have different books (bibles) and a different road to follow, or many roads to Heaven. They think there are many ways to God.....how sad! They never checked the Word of God. It tells us there is only ONE way to God, His way, not theirs! Who do you want to believe, them or the Word? Read it by the Spirit, you will see the truth and it's not as hard as Satan says. Look at me, I'm no one and I found it.
Keep this in mind and heart, the Word says there is only one way, one door, one faith, one God, and one Word of God. Religions practice their faith by the week in a building of man. They puff each other up and try to save the saved, who are really lost in their beliefs. They still try to keep the Law by works. They are bewitched. No matter how hard they try, they are lost in the flesh and devil. Now you know why I'm still fighting for the lost souls with the truth of the Word as taught me by the Holy Spirit. I do care and will share my Jesus with all who will listen.
The Epistles, written by the Spirit through Paul (Saul), are the warnings and paths to follow as a Born-Again Christian until Christ returns, or 'til you are with the Lord sooner. Keep in mind and heart, most of the Word, as written, is a warning of sin and the devil and his tricks. Many religions speak of love in Christ but really know little of its application in a daily walk. Satan has shown them a walk in Antichrists, and there are many of them. If you knew the heart of all these false leaders/teachers and saw them in their daily walk, you would really see the man for what he is, for by their fruits you will know them. "Ye shall know them by their fruits...." Matt.7:16. Do you understand this?
The next book is the Book of Revelation of Jesus, written on the Isle of Patmos. It is this book that leads to the return of Christ on earth, His Second Coming. The first three (3) chapters are the Seven church ages of the Christian life on earth, from Christ's death to His Second Coming. We are the LAODICEAN Church Age (the Christian church of Christ) which, after the first chapters of the Book of Revelation, is not heard of again on this earth.....it is in Heaven. In Chapter 4 of Revelation, the lost souls on earth will feel the wrath of God during the time of Tribulation. People can be saved during this period but it's going to be very difficult. They may even lose their life, but their soul is more important.
We will now look at the time period during Tribulation. (Note: This is the only book that shows the Catholic church as the MOTHER OF HARLOTS.) Read REV. 17:4,5,6,9. Rome is her seat.....REV. 17:9-18. You have the Word of God on it. The head of the group, the POPE, is the FALSE-PROPHET of the Anti-Christ (Devil's man), but on the surface he appears as a holy man, an Angel of Light, even a good man, but inside he is full of dead mans bones. The Pope is not from Peter, a Jew. Peter was named in Hebrew as a stone. Christ is the Rock from which we are built upon, our Spiritual Ground. The Pope sits on the ground of Rome given him by the devil. He comes from the stone of JUDAS, the betrayer. This book is easy to understand by the Spirit and His truth, it is a light in a dark world of lies. You can't change it to fit your religion or belief.
The next book is the Book of Life. If your name is not in this book, you are not saved and in Christ. You are not one of His. Satan is your saviour and hell, and the lake of fire, is yours. While on this earth, you are Satan's disciple and you will do his work. You will also pay his price in hell and you can't come back from there. It is a real place, prepared for those who are not in Christ. It is a place of eternal pain and sorrow....forever and ever....REV. 21:8, REV. 21:10, REV. 20:13 and REV. 19:20. The Word of God is true. He has told us before hand. You'd better read it now! It can't be changed or erased by man. No one can lie about it either. Please wake up!!
The Word of God, as written by His Spirit, is true. Man was the pencil, as guided by the Spirit. "Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation. For the prophecy came not in old time by the will of man: but holy men of God spake as they were moved by the Holy Ghost."-II PETER 1:20,21. Man is the liar. "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 turning the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah into ashes condemned them with an overthrow, making them an ensample unto those that after should live ungodly." II PETER 2:1,2,6. Satan has many Angels of Light that mislead man in their search for truth. They look good in speech and appearance but their lives are a fleshly walk of the devil. Benny Hinn and Swaggert are good examples. They say they have sinned and they cry alot, but by their fruits you shall know them. "Angels of light" seek titles, money, big homes, big bank accounts, and they travel first class. Did Christ do or have any of these things? Who do you want to follow?
Some of these Angels of Light of Satan (and your enemy) are: The Pope of Rome, Billy Graham, Oral Roberts, Pat Robertson (700 Club), Charles Colson, Jimmy Swaggert, Paul and Jan Crouch, Bill Bright, Jim Bakker, Rex Humbart, Jack Van Impy (walking bible of Satan), Benny Hinn, Ken Copeland, Ken Haggen, D. Prince and his group, etc......I could go on an on but you should know them by their fruits. If you test all spirits, their fruit, you will know them. Look at their lives and how they live, are they Christ like? Most of these men I have written to and warned them, but few responded. I love them enough to warn them. Look at the world, nature and its evil. Look at the people and their children. The Word says spare the rod, spoil the child. What does man say, "they're just kids." Look at the government and its politicians and their lies to get elected, they work for their own rewards and their luxurious living......all the work of the prince of this world, Satan.
I pray I upset this world, it's people, its religions,....some one! I need to be "salt" to a dying race of humans on this planet. Time is running out on it. There is one group who profess godly fruits, calling themselves Christian but are the devils friends, the Catholic.....who the Lord calls the "Mother of Harlots", as well as those who follow her and who shall get their reward, twice the punishment in the Lake of Fire. They have killed more people and saints than all the evil rulers in the world. There are NO Catholics in Heaven, never has been, nor will there ever be. This is not my word or writing but from the Word of the Lord. Read it, if you know the Lord Jesus and are Born-Again, you will know that what I have written is true and I am trying to reach these people, the Catholic, who need to know the real Christ and not the Anti-Christ. They need to be Born-Again. They must be told they are following the wrong path and have Satan's religion. They are still following the Law of the Jew. Today they are more Jew than the Jews of Israel. They need my Christ, as they have no salvation without Him.
I am on record as hating sin and evil and the devil and his world. The "666" is soon to come. I know his works and his people who are being led to do his evil work. I warn you all, it is soon to end. They need to be told now, while there are still a few hours left. Again I say, I am but a voice crying out in a lost world. Come out of her, know my Jesus and live Him. Help me be a voice, a witness, led by the Spirit, not of yourself, not after a man, and not under a denomination of man. I'm His disciple. I have a commission and a burden to warn people about His soon coming and to be ready. I fear no man nor what he can do to me. I fear nothing of Satan or his world. I know Satan, his Angels, his works, and he knows me. He has no power over me. Greater is He (the Holy Spirit) that is in me than he (Satan) that is in the world. Do you understand that? I am a sinner saved by the grace of Christ, born again of spiritual water and the Holy Spirit. All that I do, I do with no charge, it is free! It was given to me freely, so I freely give. I will not be a burden to anyone. I share my Jesus with you. The Lord has and will meet my needs, He will also meet yours if you ask. He knows what you need, you have not because you ask not. Ask of the Spirit, not the flesh. I always pray the Lord's will be done. I pray I know His will and do it to His honor and glory. A prayer is talking to the Lord, always. He never sleeps. If you walk with Him, talk to Him, He hears you!
How do you reach the lost of the world? There's no easy way. Satan knows that, he tells people that I'm nuts or weird, a false teacher or teaching some new translation of my own or some new religion. It's obvious they have not heard it before. They know I don't go along with them and they can't figure me out and never will if they do not know my Christ by the Spirit. Many think I want a following. To them I say, "follow me not"! I am nothing. Follow Christ by the Spirit. I want none of those things, they are the farthest things from the truth. I really love the Lord and His creation and I am trying by the Spirit, as He taught me, to warn everyone in a lost world before it's too late. I don't have much time. Many souls are being taken by Satan and no one cares! Well I do, and so does the Lord. Satan wants me to leave those souls of his alone, alone with his religions. I am a voice crying out in the darkness, make straight the way of the Lord, He is coming to judge the world of sin. I shall cut through the darkness of Satan and reach who I can while there is still time. His Angels of Light have many different clothes on. There's always one that someone will like or follow that suits their needs, one that tickles their ears. Many souls look to them for a way to Heaven, an easy way they say. "We don't want to get involved too much now" or "there's lots of time." None of them know the Word or check it out. Satan keeps telling them they have lots of time. Look at the facts, look at nature, look at the people, look at sin. Who do you believe?
Remember, I am not the way but I do know Who is. He knows me, He is in me. If you know Him, you would know me. I boast in Him and what the Spirit has shown me of Him. No one can take that from me, not man or Satan, my course is set. I'm looking to go soon. Will you go with me?
At the White Throne Judgment, I can look at each soul, eye to eye, and they will know I tried to warn them while they were still on the earth. There is, again I say; ONE LORD, ONE FAITH, ONE BODY OF CHRIST, ONE DOOR TO HEAVEN, ONE ROAD, AND IT IS WRITTEN "NOT MANY WHO FIND IT".
You cannot get to Heaven or have salvation your own way. You must be HOT, not COLD, and especially not LUKE-WARM, the worst kind and there will not be any "luke-warm" in Heaven. The Word says: "I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot: I would thou wert cold or hot. So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth." - Rev.3:15-16. You make mistakes, yes.....you sin, yes.....but you repent, learn and grow in Christ. You leave the milk and eat the meat of the Word, and you live what you read and know. I can do no more for you, you have been warned. If you don't love Jesus as I do, then you are not worthy to be with Him or me. It's your choice!
