God's Sword of Truth - The Word
... THE GREATEST BOOK EVER WRITTEN ... is the Word of God, and His pure, inerrant, infallible word is right here on this earth, for each and every one to read and live by. It is called the Bible (King James Authorized Version) which gives light and understanding unto the simple and makes us wise unto salvation, "The entrance of thy words giveth light; it giveth understanding unto the simple." - Psalms 119:130. It directs us in our daily lives, teaching us to confess our sin unto repentance, to believe and know that Christ is our only hope of salvation, for "...this man [Christ], after he had offered one sacrifice for sins for ever, sat down on the right hand of God;" - Heb. 10:12, (His sacrifice on the cross paid the price of our sin), and without Jesus Christ there is no forgiveness, our life worth nothing, and we are proven guilty by His Word.
The words of the Lord are pure words: as silver tried in a furnace of earth, purified seven times - Psalm 12:7
... THE LORD'S WORD IS A BOOK OF AGES ... it's not just words...it is a record of the power of life, a road map to eternity. The first history of creation was recorded by hand picked predestined men who, by the Holy Spirit, recorded special events and history of the lives of God's creation (human population) who dwelt on the earth. These lives, recorded in the Bible, have shown us the Lord's plan for His people. "Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away." - Matt. 24:35.
... IN THE BEGINNING ... the Word was fixed in the hearts of men and relayed by the method "word of mouth" which was handed down by the patriarchs to their families. The Lord kept His people aware of His plan of salvation and our return to Him. "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." - 2 Peter 1:20-21.
... THE WORD IS DIVINELY INSPIRED ... "All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness." - 2 Tim. 3:16 ... And from the mouths of holy men of God in times of old, as they were led by the Holy Ghost, came words which were then recorded on many early forms of material: papyrus or parchment made of animal skins and rolled into a scroll, stone, leather, broken pieces of pottery, etc. These records were carefully written, with its accuracy guided by the Holy Spirit, over the many years leading up to today. "God, who at sundry times and in divers manners spake in time past unto the fathers by the prophets. - Heb. 1:1. The written Word is still with us.
... THE WRITTEN WORD IS STILL WITH US ... ONLY in the King James Authorized Bible, and NOT in man's NEW renditions of what they think is truth. These new, false and corrupted bibles are of man and not of the Holy Spirit. All the many perversions of the Word of God can be found at your local, so called, "christian bible book store", K-Mart, WalMart, Department Stores, even the Drug Stores carry the lying words from the most corrupt manuscripts in the world, meaning of course, they are NOT the Word of God. "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 through covetousness shall they with feigned words make merchandise of you..." - 2 Pet. 2:1,3. These men of Satan also continue to change the Word of God from the pulpits in the "church" buildings to the TV ministries that some allow into their homes. "For such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into the apostles of Christ. And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light." - 2 Cor. 11:13-14. Get yourself a King James Authorized Bible, for all other versions are perversions. They are not Bibles, just books of men.
... OUR TEACHER OF THE WORD IS THE HOLY SPIRIT ... Man was never meant to be the source, only the Holy Spirit is our Source, left us by Jesus at Pentecost, Who is still guiding us in truth. - "And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you for ever; Even the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive, because it seeth him not, neither knoweth him: but ye know him; for he dwelleth with you, and shall be in you." - John 14:16-17. And when the Holy Spirit leaves this earth, we will go with Him (in rapture) - "In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump...and we shall be changed" - I Cor. 15:52 to be with the Lord forever.
Men of religion and those in the world read the words in the Bible, but they lack understanding because they do not have the Holy Spirit. They say they have the Holy Spirit, but their fruit says otherwise. They live according to their flesh - "So then they that are in the flesh cannot please God". - Rom. 8:8 - looking to this life and the good times of this world which will destroy them and send them to hell. (Read all of Romans, Chapter 8).
... THE WORD WARNS, EXHORTS AND REBUKES ... Time is so short and eternity is forever. "As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten: be zealous therefore, and repent." - Rev. 3:19. It's important that YOU read the Word, not what I've written, I'm no one, but I do care for and love the souls of my Father's creation. One thing for sure, there will be "accountability". YOUR sins will be paid for by YOU if there is no repentance. Christ shed His blood for ALL, but if sin is NOT repented, it is punishable by death and the Lake of Fire. There is punishment for ALL sin. "For the wages of sin is death..." - Rom. 6:23.
... FOR MANY, THERE IS IGNORANCE OF THE WORD ... and they do not want to believe there's a hell or even a place of punishment for sin. They ask: "How could a good and loving God punish anyone?" I say to them: 'Well, my friend, it will be a little late when you stand before the throne of God to be judged and you didn't believe the facts or the truth as the Word so warns.' - "Jesus answered and said unto them, ye do err, not knowing the Scriptures, nor the power of God." - Matt. 22:29. There is ONLY ONE quality decision to make in our entire life, and it can only be made by us while we are yet alive, and the bottom line is: YES, OR NO, to Jesus! It is the only reason we are in this world and why we were created. It's not by religion or works, it's by faith and hope, and there is NO OTHER CHOICE. One can't run or hide from this choice, as it will come to pass at some point and time in our life before death, to give an account using our "free will" choice. Now, our time is soon coming to an end, and we WILL give an account - "Whereas ye know not what shall be on the morrow. For what is your life? It is even a vapour, that appeareth for a little time, and then vanisheth away. Therefore to him that knoweth to do good, and doeth it not, to him it is sin." - James 4:14, 17. For the Lord Jesus will return for those that belong to Him.
... THERE IS NO OTHER WAY TO REACH JESUS ... or know Him without His Word. His Word is the knowledge and power of ALL eternal life. It is our ONLY hope for life hereafter with Christ. What the Lord-God has given us is a free-will-choice to find Him in salvation by His promises through His WORD. It has nothing to do with man, woman or a religious system. He has given all creation a NEW COVENANT, it's free in Christ Jesus and by no other way - not of works or self righteousness, or belonging to a man-made (religious) system. We are BORN AGAIN into it....BY FAITH! "For I say, through the grace given unto me, to every man that is among you, not to think of himself more highly than he ought to think; but to think soberly, according as God hath dealt to every man the measure of faith". - Rom.12:3. HIS GRACE IS A GIFT OF GOD! (See Chapter 1, Article #1, "Grace-a Free Gift of God")
... EVERY WORD WRITTEN BY THE HOLY SPIRIT IS FOOD ...and we can ONLY survive or exist by those words that have been written by the Holy Spirit. We must, by the Spirit, eat it ALL as spiritual food, Body and Blood and drink the living water - John 6:51 -"I am the living bread which came down from heaven: if any man eat of this bread, he shall live for ever: and the bread that I will give is my flesh, which I will give for the life of the world. (also read Jn.10:9). (I am not speaking of the Catholic bread god, which [their God] is not the true God of the Bible). The Word has every vitamin and nutritional source of spiritual need required in this life. - "And did all eat the same spiritual meat; And did all drink the same spiritual drink; for they drank of that spiritual Rock that followed them: and that Rock was Christ." - I Co.10:3-4. It answers every question of life that we could possible need. It gives us the necessary information of past, present and future facts that are needed in order for us to win over Satan, our mortal enemy. "Fight the good fight of faith, lay hold on eternal life, whereunto thou art also called, and hast professed a good profession before many witnesses." - I Tim.6:12. We need nothing else to overcome and persevere, but the WORD as interpreted by [ONLY] the Holy Spirit. - "But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you." John 14:26. (also read John 16:13-14). (See Chapter 3, The Holy Spirit)
... THE WORD GIVES US SPIRITUAL DISCERNMENT ... not by a man, but by the Holy Spirit - the Scripture itself witnesses to this important and essential truth. "But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned. But he that is spiritual judgeth all things, yet he himself is judged of no man." - 1 Cor. 2:14-15. Only those who are born again, having been taught by the Holy Spirit, can perceive the teachings of the Bible, the Word of God, and "...who by reason of use have their senses exercised to discern both good and evil." - Heb. 5:14.
A warning for every Christian - Satan and all his demons are running fiercely about this earth, corrupting, deceiving, and attacking every Christian that they can, so be careful, because Satan will attack your flesh and take advantage of you in ways that you could never imagine. "Lest Satan should get an advantage of us: for we are not ignorant of his devices." - 2 Cor. 2:11.
...THE WORD IS NOT IN RELIGION ... so, if YOU are in religion, YOU'VE missed it! Get out of the church buildings of worship and put Christ in your heart and let the world see Him through your light on the hill...live Jesus, don't talk Him.
We need not a man to teach us, nor do we need to be in bondage to a religion or fellowship. Christ is our fellowship. We can come together to study His Word and have fellowship, but, do not make that fellowship a bondage, something we might feel we have to do every week, like going to church. If the body of Christ is ONE, and it is, then when we have Christ, we have it ALL, always, nothing else is needed. - "For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them." - Matt. 18:20. Jesus is always with us, open to us, and one with us. Just make sure that Jesus knows you have the right road map (King James Authorized Version) with His final directions. Do not allow Satan to cause a detour of the Lord's directions. Follow NOT after the self righteous lights of man or his religions. Follow the signs of His Word ONLY! -"As every man hath received the gift, even so minister the same one to another, as good stewards of the manifold grace of God." - I Peter 4:10.
... THE WORD WARNS OF RELIGIOUS DECEPTION ... From the beginning of time, people had an inability to distinguish between the truth of God's word and false presentations of it: "I marvel that ye are so soon removed from him that called you into the grace of Christ unto another gospel: Which is not another; but there be some that trouble you, and would pervert the gospel of Christ. 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." - Gal. 1:6-8. Now, we can easily see the "COMING TOGETHER" of all religions under the title "One World Religion", the APOSTATE SYSTEM, the MOTHER OF HARLOTS (the Catholic church) is making false deals with other religions, even the pagans, Muslims, Hindus, witches, etc., all part of it, can't you see it? The Word tells us about this in Revelation: "And the woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet colour, and decked with gold and precious stones and pearls, having a golden cup in her hand full of abominations and filthiness of her fornication: And upon her forehead was a name written, MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH." - Rev. 17:4-5. You can see it, you can read about it! It's on the TV, in your newspapers, all around us every day. If you are a member of a denomination, you are soon to become a member of the "One World Religion", whether you know it now, believe it, or believe it not, IT IS TRUE. There is no truth in religion or so called "holy men", they go as Satan goes. They teach another Jesus; another gospel. They have introduced you to the "counterfeit Jesus".
... THERE ARE THOSE WHO DESPISE THE WORD .... "Knowing this first, that there shall come in the last days scoffers, walking after their own lusts, And saying, Where is the promise of his coming? for since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of the creation." - 2 Pet. 3:3-4. This we know, the world is getting worse, and we know that Satan's time is short, therefore things will continue to get worse, more than one could ever imagine. There will be NO PEACE - just War, Sin, Famine, Destruction of Property, Hate (the new things called "Road Rage, Standing in Line Rage, Teacher Rage, Student Rage, Parent Rage, People Rage" - you name it, there's always a word connected to 'Rage'"). Then, there's Killing: one's neighbor, one's own children, infants and the unborn by abortion; how about the Weather; in constant turmoil, tornadoes, hurricanes, floods, earthquakes and forrest fires; take a look at Nature; animals becoming extinct, bees stinging and killing people; what about the Water we drink; a shrinking water supply, becoming unfit for consumption. Now, the news is telling us (9/17/00) that there will be a new virus (Sickness) this year, never seen before, and will attack the animals first and then passed on to the human population and many will die. There's also the West Nile outbreak in Israel, and the U.S. health officials are worried because the virus could possibly spread up the East Coast of the United States (Toronto, Sept. 17 (Reuters) News, by Maggie Fox, Health Correspondent). LOOK AT THE SIGNS ALL AROUND US! PEOPLE, WHAT MORE DO WE NEED? The Word says: "Then said he unto them, Nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: And great earthquakes shall be in divers places, and famines, and pestilences; and fearful sights and great signs shall there be from heaven." - Luke 21: 10-11.
... THE WORD SAYS WE ARE SET FREE ... In Jesus Christ we have been SET FREE - "If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed." - John 8:36 - from the rudiments of the world - "Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ" - Col.2:8. If we really know Jesus, we show it by living Him everyday. Yes, it is hard, Satan is here to make it so, but we must endure to the end, for GREATER IS HE THAT IS IN US, THAN HE THAT IS IN THE WORLD. Jesus has done the battle for us and we are winners in eternity forever.
... READ THE WORD ... it's all there. It has been written and we have been warned: - "Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth." - 2 Tim. 2:15. "For the time is come that judgment must begin at the house of God: and if it first begin at us, what shall the end be of them that obey not the gospel of God? And if the righteous scarcely be saved, where shall the ungodly and the sinner appear? - I Peter 4:17-18. "...dividing the word of truth" - 2 Tim. 3:15. The world is evil and will never get any better until Jesus comes back, we need Him. Come soon, Lord Jesus! Are YOU ready? Please turn to Jesus now while there is yet time. I am a watchman and a voice crying out. Hear me, please!
THE WORD.....THE WORD.....THE WORD
...I HAVE A QUESTION...for you who are reading this right now- what would it take to warn you? How big an earth quake, how disastrous a volcano eruption, how many deaths? What? You say, "none of the above"? Well, then, how about fear? And I mean, NEVER being without fear day or night? Wow! Here's a tough one - what about pain? Unceasing pain that attacks your whole body? Now, try this, think of darkness - eternal darkness, never able to see light again. At this point, allow me to explain something to you. Even with FEAR, PAIN, AND ETERNAL DARKNESS, you could not, would not, be able to know in your mind, what HELL is really like. The biggest loss of all for those who are about to go to hell is Jesus and not being eternally with Him in heaven.
THE WORD.....THE WORD.....THE WORD
Special comment: In all my years of teaching the Word, as the Holy Spirit taught me, I have stood firm in those teachings. The teachings have been my source of truth which led me to a firm spiritual growth. One cannot have that growth without the teachings of truth from the Holy Spirit. No religion can give you this. I can stand against the world - and praise His Name.
By His Word we have His Covenant with us. There's no middle man - seek and find - the Holy Spirit knows what you need. "Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you: For every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened." - Matt.8:7-8.
There has been a set time for everything in the calendar of the Lord, and He has a plan for His body of believers. We are now in the last period and it is time to give an account of the stewardship of our life. Everything we have done or will do is written in a book in heaven, and our life on earth determines if we are in the Book of Life. For those not in that book, they are in Satan's book, and hell will be their residence forever. Their heating bill is paid up by their sins. There's no water bills because there's no water to quench thirst.
We need not memorize the Word, just read and hide the Word in our heart and it will come back when needed. There is a man on TV who memorizes the bible, but it's in his head, not in his heart. His life in the flesh shows...he believes the same as the Catholic Pope (false prophet) teaches, thus being, as the old saying goes, "birds of a feather, flock together".
PLEASE NOTE: If you do not have a copy of the King James, 1611 Authorized Version, in english, you do not have the Word of God, you have the word of Satan, and Satan's best bible is the NIV translation of which it has been reported that in the 1970's, Virginia Mollenkott, a Stylistic consultant for the NIV translating committee was a lesbian and the Chairman, Dr. Marten H. Woudstra, of the NIV's old testament history was also reported to be a homosexual. Also, it has been intimated that there were others on the NIV translation committee who are quietly supportive of ECI (Evangelicals Concerned Inc.) founded in 1976. This information can be checked out.
