You Don't Know What To Pray For And Neither Do I

Romans 8:26-28, Likewise the Spirit also helpeth our infirmities: for we know not what we should pray for as we ought: but the Spirit itself maketh intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered.  And he that searcheth the hearts knoweth what is the mind of the Spirit, because he maketh intercession for the saints according to the will of GodAnd we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are called according to His purpose.” 

Prayer is asking! The Word of God boldly teaches that we do NOT know what to ask God for. That is an amazing truth to me! WE KNOW NOT WHAT WE SHOULD PRAY FOR AS WE OUGHT!!! You would think that as believers, we would know what to ask God for, since we have the Scriptures to guide us. 1st Corinthians 2:16, “For who hath known the mind of the Lord, that he may instruct him? But we have the mind of Christ.Why is it that even though 'WE HAVE THE MIND OF CHRIST,' we still 'KNOW NOT WHAT WE SHOULD PRAY FOR AS WE OUGHT'? 

I believe the answer is simply because we do not know our future. We can know what God's written will is in any particular known situation, in the recorded pages of God's inspired Word; but we cannot know God's will regarding our unknown future; therefore, we have to trust God. We do not know the future, but we can know HE WHO HOLDS THE FUTURE!!! Pastor Max Younce has authored a wonderful book on this very topic: 'I KNOW WHO HOLDS TOMORROW' (free .PDF online version). 

This is why we are taught in Proverbs 3:5-7, “Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths. Be not wise in thine own eyes: fear the LORD, and depart from evil.” We are not supposed to lean upon our own understanding, simply because we cannot understand everything, nor does God expect us to. This is why we are PROMISED the peace of God 'WHICH PASSETH ALL UNDERSTANDING' through prayer...
Philippians 4:6-7, “Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God. And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.”
What a comforting Bible passage! There is a peace of God within understanding (which I much rather prefer); but then there is a peace of God which is beyond ALL HUMAN UNDERSTANDING. I admit that I don't like living BY FAITH when everything is going wrong in my life; anymore than the children of Israel liked being hot, hungry and horrified by what they experienced in the unforgiving desert Wilderness!!! Albeit, I rejoice in knowing that God is pleased by my faith, because I love the Lord and want Him to be pleased with me (as much as I mess up). 

Living by faith means trusting God when bad things happen, when life goes wrong, when we just want to throw in the towel and quit! When there's no more income coming in, and you don't know how you're going to pay your bills or survive, that is when you're faith is really put to the test! God has promised to take care of us. We may not have what we want in life, but God will provide for our basic needs. 1st Timothy 6:6-8, “But godliness with contentment is great gain. For we brought nothing into this world, and it is certain we can carry nothing out. And having food and raiment let us be therewith content.” 


The Holy Spirit Is Literally Our Prayer Partner


In Pastor Jack Hyles' excellent book titled: 'MEET THE HOLY SPIRIT,' chapter 6, he teaches:
Two of the most important things that the young Christian has to learn are (1) how to get things from God, and (2) how to share with others and give to others what God gives. It should be remembered that in the Bible, prayer is asking. Prayer is not praise; it is asking. Prayer is not thanksgiving; it is asking. Prayer is not adoration; it is asking. This discussion will deal with the Holy Spirit, our prayer partner, Who joins with us in our prayer life. 
1. The Holy Spirit intercedes with us. Romans 8:26, “Likewise the Spirit also helpeth our infirmities: for we know not what we should pray for as we ought: but the Spirit Itself maketh intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered.” The word “intercession” in verse 26 is not the same word that is translated “intercession in verse 27. In verse 26 the word means that the Holy Spirit goes WITH us to the Father to help us plead for our needs and, yes, for our wants. There are several aspects:
  1. I don't know what I need. 
  2. The Holy Spirit DOES know what I need. 
  3. I go to Him, that is, the Holy Spirit, to find my needs. 
  4. He tells me what my needs are. 
  5. I make a list of the things He reminds me. 
  6. I then go to the Father. 
  7. He goes with me.
2. The Holy Spirit intercedes for us concerning things for which we do not ask. 
SOURCE: Dr. Jack Hyles, 'Meet The Holy Spirit,' Chapter 6.
The most important thing is that we PRAY WITHOUT CEASING” (1st Thessalonians 5:17). Those are perhaps the THREE most powerful, yet overlooked words in the Word of God. Prayer is asking. Prayer is depending upon God. Prayer evidences to God that we cannot make it on our own. James 4:6, “But he giveth more grace. Wherefore he saith, God resisteth the proud, but giveth grace unto the humble.” God always hears the righteous when we pray. 1st Peter 3:12, “For the eyes of the Lord are over the righteous, and his ears are open unto their prayers: but the face of the Lord is against them that do evil. If you are saved and right with God, you have God's PROMISE that He is listening to your prayers! By right with God, I mean that you have confessed your sins to God as a believer, and are making an effort with His help to live for God (1st John 1:9). You'll never be perfect, but God sees your heart, if you're trying to love others and do right. 

Prayer works, one way or the other, prayer works. You're never wasting your time when you pray! You may feel like you're wasting your time, like I often do, but I am not supposed to live BY SIGHT, which is what we are doing when we look for results. 1st Corinthians 5:7, “(For we walk by faith, not by sight:)I just go ahead and PRAY ANYWAY, and trust God. Listen to me dear reader—prayer is far more a matter of living by faith, than it is merely getting things from God! I have lived long enough as a Christian to learn that God's normal M.O. (Method of Operation), is to make us feel like He's ignoring us (Luke 18:1-8), but He then works behind the scenes in a way that we cannot perceive (Hebrews 11:27). 
“Jesus died for the hindmost, as much as He died for the foremost!” —Pastor Jack Hyles, “Don't Forget The Hindmost

Jesus' Blood Is Sprinkled On The Mercy Seat In Heaven

Hebrews 9:12, “Neither by the blood of goats and calves, but by his own blood he entered in once into the holy place, having obtained eternal redemption for us.”

There is no greater truth in the inspired Word of God, than that the literal precious blood of Jesus is sprinkled on the Mercy Seat in Heaven! Hebrews 12:24, “And to Jesus the mediator of the new covenant, and to the blood of sprinkling, that speaketh better things than that of Abel. Abel killed a lamb and offered up a blood sacrifice to God, demonstrating his faith in the coming LAMB OF GOD! The Scripture we just read says that the sprinkling of Jesus' blood “SPEAKETH BETTER THINGS THAN THAT OF ABEL.” The reason why is because Jesus' blood once and for all took away our sins!!! 
Hebrews 9:24-26, “For Christ is not entered into the holy places made with hands, which are the figures of the true; but into heaven itself, now to appear in the presence of God for us: Nor yet that he should offer himself often, as the high priest entereth into the holy place every year with blood of others; For then must he often have suffered since the foundation of the world: but now once in the end of the world hath he appeared to put away sin by the sacrifice of himself.”
Could the Bible be any plainer that Jesus appeared directly in the PRESENCE OF GOD THE FATHER, on our behalf, to put away our sins? I think not! If the blood hadn't been sprinkled upon the heavenly Mercy Seat, then there could be NO REDEMPTION!!! 


John 20:17 Corrupts The Blood In The Modern Bible Revisions

That is why I make such a big fuss over the modern Bible revisions which ALL CORRUPT John 20:17, “Jesus saith unto her, Touch me not; for I am not yet ascended to my Father: but go to my brethren, and say unto them, I ascend unto my Father, and your Father; and to my God, and your God.” Had Mary Magdalene touched our dear Savior, she would have corrupted Christ's blood sacrifice! Jesus exclaimed: “TOUCH ME NOT; FOR I AM NOT YET ASCENDED TO MY FATHER”! As we just read in Hebrews 9:12 and 24-26, Jesus entered into the HOLY PLACE in Heaven, and sprinkled His literal liquid blood upon the MERCY SEAT in the presence of God the Father.

“Those are Devil's Bibles!”Pastor Al Lacy

This is a fundamental Bible doctrine. Before Jesus sprinkled His blood (Hebrews 12:24) on the heavenly Mercy Seat, He could not be touched, lest the blood sacrifice be tainted and ruined. This is why the Lord warned Mary Magdalene NOT TO TOUCH HIM after He resurrected the third day...
KING JAMES BIBLE (KJB) — John 20:17, “Jesus saith unto her, Touch me not; for I am not yet ascended to my Father: but go to my brethren, and say unto them, I ascend unto my Father, and your Father; and to my God, and your God.” [emphasis added]
Now read what the wicked Easy-To-Read Version (ERV) says:
EASY-TO-READ VERSION (ERV) — John 20:17, “Jesus said to her, “You don’t need to hold on to me! I have not yet gone back up to the Father. But go to my followers and tell them this: ‘I am going back to my Father and your Father. I am going back to my God and your God.’” [emphasis added]
Now read what the wicked New International Version (NIV) says:
NEW INTERNATIONAL VERSION (NIV) — John 20:17, “Jesus said, Do not hold on to me, for I have not yet ascended to the Father. Go instead to my brothers and tell them, ‘I am ascending to my Father and your Father, to my God and your God.’”
If there is any doubt of what I say, check out “THE GOSPEL OF JOHN” movie, in which Mary Magdalene grabs onto Jesus' hand, and then He rebukes her, telling her “DO NOT HOLD ON TO ME.” That is not what the King James Bible says! The Bible says: “TOUCH ME NOT”! That is blasphemy! Mary absolutely could not have touched Jesus until he went to the Father first, to sprinkle His literal physical blood upon the sacred Mercy Seat, to appease the wrath of God against sinners (Hebrews 9:22-24). The Bible is very clear throughout the book of Hebrews, that Christ's blood needed to be applied to the heavenly Mercy Seat, located in the Holy Place within the innermost courtyard of the tabernacle in Heaven. Jesus Christ is our heavenly “High Priest (Hebrews 4:14-16), our heavenly Intercessor (Romans 8:34).

Here we have seen just one of literally THOUSANDS of subtle changes to the inspired Words of God in the modern Bible versions. Don't let Satan fool you! Revelation 12:9, “And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.” The Devil is deceiving everyone with counterfeit Bible versions—which distort the image of Christ, corrupt the meaning of repentance and salvation, and lead people away from the doctrine of Christ by secularizing the Bible! Satan is behind it all! 


Eeny, meeny, miny, moe!

Beware Of Devil-Dog Preacher, John MacArthur!

One of the most dangerous ministers, theologically, is Pastor John F. MacArthur. I fully agree with Pastor Jack Hyles (1926-2001), who said this about Mr. MacArthur: 
“You say, 'What's wrong with John MacArthur? John MacArthur said, that the blood of Jesus maybe in the ground at the foot of Calvary.' I've got news JOHNNY—the blood of Jesus Christ is on the Mercy Seat in Heaven, where Jesus sprinkled it as my High Priest; and if it's not there I have no hope for Heaven and neither do you!” —Pastor Jack Hyles, “She Sojourned Seven Years
I thank God for faithful preachers like Dr. Hyles, who aren't afraid to call names of false prophets, and take a stand for THE TRUTH of God's Word. Praise God for the unchanging eternal Words of God in the inspired King James Bible!!! Hebrews 13:8, “Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and to day, and for ever.” Luke 21:33, “Heaven and earth shall pass away: but my words shall not pass away.” That is what saith the Scripture!!! 

Everybody likes John MacArthur, which is why he is so deadly to the religious world! I admit that I like Mr. MacArthur's style, wit, toughness and faithfulness to his own work; yet, he is guilty of preaching the heresy of Calvinism (a false Gospel), denying the efficacy of Jesus' blood sacrifice, and promoting the corruptible seed of the modern Bible revisions! The Bible forbids us to bid Godspeed to false teachers, lest we be guilty of partaking of their evil deeds.
“The wrong crowd's composed of nice guys!” —Pastor Jack Hyles, “She Sojourned Seven Years

2nd John 1:11, “For he that biddeth him God speed is partaker of his evil deeds.”
“Now you listen to me folks! We're living in a world of compromising Christianity. I call it—'The yuppie generation building yuppie churches!' Brother, we need the old-time Gospel, the old-time religion, the faith of our fathers, and the standards that America used to have!” —Pastor Jack Hyles, “She Sojourned Seven Years

God Pity Preachers Who Make Light Of Truth

Psalms 119:139-141, “My zeal hath consumed me, because mine enemies have forgotten thy words. Thy word is very pure: therefore thy servant loveth it. I am small and despised: yet do not I forget thy precepts.”

God pity preachers who make light of corrupt Bible versions and the Lordship Salvation Heresy! These evils need to be refuted and exposed!!! If God's men in the pulpit don't do it, then prey tell me who will? If not us, who? If not here, where? If not now, when? I have been openly criticized by some foolish pastors, who have accused me of being “OBSESSED WITH THE BIBLE ISSUE DEBATE.” You better believe I'm OBSESSED about the Word of God!!! My friend, something is VERY WRONG with any preacher who is not obsessed about Satan's crowd tampering with the incorruptible Word of God. 1st Peter 1:23, “Being born again, not of corruptible seed, but of incorruptible, by the word of God, which liveth and abideth for ever.” I can understand a church laymen not getting upset, because he is unlearned in many cases and doesn't grasp the seriousness of the matter.

Satan First Appeared Under The Tree Of Knowledge

Beware of false knowledge, it is more dangerous than ignorance. Proverbs 26:12, “Seest thou a man wise in his own conceit? there is more hope of a fool than of him.” The Modern Bible revisions are false knowledge!!! Little by little, the Devil has incrementally been changing the Word of God from one generation to the next, removing the ancient landmark of the inspired Word of God. Case in point is the brand new 'Literal Standard Version' (LSV) that just came out in 2020, and as if that weren't bad enough, 'Christianity Today' (CT) magazine says we need another Bible translation! Really? Aren't 900 English Bible translations enough? I guess not! 

Dear friend, I was sinfully driven out of Harvest Baptist Church on Guam in 2014 (and have been banned from returning since) by their pastors, for telling THE TRUTH that the New International Version (NIV) is the Antichrist's version! I forgive them but God will deal with them, for betraying the inspired Word of God and shunning away a Christian brother who did the honorable things by trying to help them see. I love them, but they don't love God or truth at Harvest, to their shame. I say that with sadness and prayers for their deliverance! I have perfect peace in this matter, knowing that God is on my side. Romans 3:4, “God forbid: yea, let God be true, but every man a liar; as it is written, That thou mightest be justified in thy sayings, and mightest overcome when thou art judged.

Pastor Jack Hyles (1926-2001) was a true man of God, who discerned what the Devil is doing by incrementally tampering with God's Word, gradually changing the truth into a lie...
“Now you say, 'Brother Hyles, you make an issue.' You dead sure better know I'll make an issue!” —'BATTLE OF THE AGES' (MP3, Dr. Jack Hyles, “The King James Bible crowd is going to come out on top!”)
Please consider ladies and gentleman, that the first appearance of Satan in the Holy Bible was in the form of a serpent, sly and cunning, who cast doubt upon God's words. The serpent first appeared under the TREE OF KNOWLEDGE! Genesis 3:1, “Now the serpent was more subtil than any beast of the field which the LORD God had made. And he said unto the woman, Yea, hath God said, Ye shall not eat of every tree of the garden?” Please notice carefully that Satan placed a question mark where God had placed a period! Genesis 2:16-17, “And the LORD God commanded the man, saying, Of every tree of the garden thou mayest freely eat: But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt not eat of it: for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die.” The downfall of Eve began when Satan influenced her to question the authority of God's Word. 

The serpent was able to confuse Eve, simply by raising up a SECOND AUTHORITY! That is why the Devil has published more Bibles—to raise up a SECOND AUTHORITY—to challenge the FIRST AUTHORITY (i.e., the inspired Word of God). Anytime that TWO AUTHORITIES exist, a THIRD AUTHORITY is required to determine which of the first two is correct. Hence, enter into the boxing ring modern manmade scholarship! We've got a bunch of stupid pastors today, who are as wicked (filled with pride) as the Devil, who couldn't care less about the purity of God's Word! Whereas the faithful King James Bible still says: “THUS SAITH THE LORD!”; the modern perverse Alexandrian-based Bible versions say: “HATH GOD SAID?” It is wickedness!!! Does your church pastor support the Devil's Bible revisions? Thank God for faithful men of God like Pastor Al Lacy (1933-2016), who rightly said: 


“Those are Devil's Bibles!” Pastor Al Lacy

You Better Believe I'm Obsessed Over The Holy Bible!

You better believe that I am “obsessed” with the Bible issue debate. It's too bad that Bob Jones University is sitting idle, neutral in the work of God, letting people like me do all the work! SHAME ON BOB JONES UNIVERSITY AND THEIR LUKEWARM GRADUATES!!! I promise you that they will hang their heads in utter shame at the Judgment Seat of Christ. I guarantee you that the only reward most BJU graduates (those who are idle in the battle for the inspiration of God's Word), will ever receive, is their earthly paycheck! The ministry is merely a means (a job) to support themselves. This is why Jesus sternly warned His disciples in Luke 16:13, “No servant can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon.” To the same degree that a preacher depends upon his salary instead of God, he will compromise his stand for THE TRUTH.
“One reason sin flourishes is that it is treated like a cream puff instead of a rattlesnake.” ―Billy Sunday
I cannot warn everyone enough about the dangers of the modern Bible perversions. The big Satanic lie is that people need a Bible that is easier to understand. This is how the Devil has tricked them into accepting the corrupt 1881 Greek text of Brooke Westcott and Fenton Hort? By the way, THIS IS THE SAME GREEK TEXT THAT THE JEHOVAH'S WITNESSES CULT USE IN THEIR DEMONIC 'NEW WORLD TRANSLATION'! Of course JW's love the Greek text produced by Westcott and Hort, because it attacks Jesus' deity, and JW's don't believe that Jesus Christ is almighty God!!! That speaks volumes as to the Luciferian agenda behind the Bible revision craze. Wake up Christian people! Is your pastor complicit? If he uses, sells or supports the modern Bible versions, yes, he is definitely complicit. 2nd John 1:11, “For he that biddeth him God speed is partaker of his evil deeds.
“They tell me that I rub the fur the wrong way. I don't; let the cat turn around.” ―Billy Sunday
Any pastor who sanctions, uses or promotes the Devil's corruptible seed is God's enemy! Jeremiah 12:10, “Many pastors have destroyed my vineyard, they have trodden my portion under foot, they have made my pleasant portion a desolate wilderness.” Why is it that Pastor Al Lacy and Dr. Jack Hyles were able to see THE TRUTH behind the Devil's modern Bible revisions, but most pastors and churches today don't? I believe it is because most people don't ever learn to think for themselves! “Love is thinking,” Dr. Hyles says. I like that! It means that if you love someone, you're going to think about them, and think about ways you can express that love for them. Most clergy merely collect a paycheck, thinking about money instead of the things of God. The Bible warns us about religious phonies in the churches, about people “Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof”; admonishing all believers, “from such turn away” (2nd Timothy 3:5). 

Warning: Bridge Out Ahead!

I cannot think of anyone more phony than the modern Bible crowd! They sit in church surrounded by literally DOZENS of different conflicting Bible revisions, going along with that folly because their incompetent pastors do! It is apostasy!!! Brooke Westcott openly denied the infallibility of the Scriptures (sounds like Biblica, the producers of the New International Version, aka, NIV)...
May 5th, 1860 - Westcott to Hort: “at present I find the presumption in favour of the absolute truth - I reject the word infallibility - of Holy Scripture overwhelming.” (Life, Volume I, page 207). Westcott and Hort: From Their Own Mouths
That speaks volumes as to the “HATH GOD SAID?” satanic spirit behind the Bible revision craze. Just as the serpent beguiled Eve by leading her to question God's final authority, so also do modern ungodly scholars (many of whom have only honorary degrees that are worthless) sinfully question the infallibility of the Scriptures. God said what He meant, and meant what He said!

The following is a classic example of how ALL the modern Bible versions GO AGAINST the inspired King James Bible. Take a look at how the new perversions all change God's promise in Psalms 12:6-7 to preserve His very pure words unto every generation. Here's a comparison of Psalms 12:6-7—God's promise to preserve His pure Words unto every generation—Look how all of these new satanic Bible versions totally butcher, change and remove God's PROMISE to preserve His Words. Instead of preserving God's very pure words, all the new versions change it to say that God preserves the saints instead...
King James Bible (KJB)Psalms 12:6-7, "The words of the LORD are pure words: as silver tried in a furnace of earth, purified seven times. Thou shalt keep them, O LORD, thou shalt preserve them from this generation for ever." 
The Common English Bible (CEB)Psalms 12:6-7, "The LORD's promises are pure, like silver that's been refined in an oven, purified seven times over! You, LORD, will keep us, protecting us from this generation forever." 
The Complete Jewish Bible (CJB)Psalms 12:6-7, "The words of ADONAI are pure words, silver in a melting-pot set in the earth, refined and purified seven times over. You, ADONAI, protect us; guard us forever from this generation."
The Message Bible (MSG)Psalm 12:6-7, "God's words are pure words, Pure silver words refined seven times In the fires of his word-kiln, Pure on earth as well as in heaven. God, keep us safe from their lies, From the wicked who stalk us with lies." 
Good News Translation (GNT)Psalm 12:6-7, "The wicked are everywhere, and everyone praises what is evil. Keep us always safe, O Lord, and preserve us from such people."
...AND ON THEY GO, THE NEW VERSIONS JUST KEEP COMING TO CORRUPT THE CHURCHES!!!
READ MORE: The Ugly Truth About Today's Bible Versions
My, Oh my, what a wicked thing! What a bunch of lying deceivers!!! They've changed the inspired Words of God to justify butchering and selling the Bible. If God only wrote one book, then there would be no justification to publish hundreds of new versions. As the old adage goes... Follow the money! What does your Bible read in Psalms 12:6-7??? Does it maintain God's PROMISE to preserve His pure words unto every generation, or does it say that he will protect the believer from the wicked? Clearly, God doesn't always protect believers from the wicked, which is why they were fed to the lions in Rome!!! Still today, Christians are being murdered in the Middle East, North Korea, and other dictatorships and Communist nations without God.
1st John 4:1, Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world.” 

The Greatest Danger Of The New Bible Versions

I am gladly “obsessed” with the Bible issue debate, and brother I plan to stay obsessed too!
“Now you say, 'Brother Hyles, you make an issue.' You dead sure better know I'll make an issue!” —'BATTLE OF THE AGES' (MP3, Dr. Jack Hyles, “The King James Bible crowd is going to come out on top!”)
I have also been accused by shallow pastors and religious people, of “going way overboard” on my websites about Lordship Salvation. I tell you, I haven't even got started yet by God's grace! The heresy of Lordship Salvation is straight from the depths of Satan. What is “Lordship Salvation.” It is the false teaching that admitting you are a sinner, and by faith receiving Christ's sacrifice on the cross as payment for your sins, and trusting upon the risen Savior from the dead, is NOT ENOUGH to save you.

According to Lordship Salvation advocates, a person MUST also receive Christ as the “Lord” of their life, making a full surrender to Jesus' Lordship to follow and serve Him, and to turn away from a lifestyle of sinful behavior as “proof” of this commitment. The latter is very close to what the cults all teach. Search my ministry websites and you will find numerous articles on this subject. Seventh-day Adventists, Mormons, Jehovah's Witnesses and even Roman Catholics ALL teach that repentance means turning away from your sinful bad habits to be saved. NONE of these things comprise “The Gospel” as taught in the Scriptures in 1st Corinthians 15:1-6).
“The backslider likes the preaching that wouldn't hit the side of a house, while the real disciple is delighted when the truth brings him to his knees.” ―Billy Sunday
Salvation is not doing your best, it is having Christ's best put to your account through receiving Him by faith.
John 15:22, “If I had not come and spoken unto them, they had not had sin: but now they have no cloke for their sin.”
God will not save anyone who is trying to be saved, He will only save those who are trusting to be saved.
“A man doesn't get better to get saved; he gets saved to get better.” —Pastor Curtis Hutson (1934-1995), a quote from the excellent sermon, “Salvation Crystal Clear.”
Religion is man trying to reach God through human effort, but Christianity is God trying to reach man by the sacrifice of His only begotten Son on the cross.



In Brother Tom Stegall's book, “Must Faith Endure,” he correctly states:
However, many today misunderstand this marvelous truth and say in effect, “Yes, Christ can save you, but your faith must keep holding on to Christ in order for you to reach heaven.” According to this approach, Christ really doesn't save a person; they save themselves. With this approach, a person is not really saved by faith in Christ, but ultimately by faith in their faith, as they think it is their “faithfulness” to Christ which will ultimately bring them eternal life. The great Bible teacher of the past, Harry Ironside, addressed this very problem as he answered the objection: “But must I not hold on to the end if I would be saved at last?”
So I will gladly concede that I am “obsessed” over wicked people tampering with the Holy Bible; and I have “gone way overboard” (on purpose) to expose the satanic lies of Lordship Salvation. These two evils—corrupt Bible versions and the false gospel of Lordship Salvation—are damning hundreds of millions of souls to the Lake of Fire!!! 
“Repentance don't save you! Calling on the Lord don't save you! You know what saves you? Receiving what Christ done for you on the cross!” —Pastor Danny Castle, a quote from the needful MP3 sermon, “WHY THERE'S A HELL.”

Why God's Curse Is On Bob Jones Univesity

Deuteronomy 4:2, “Ye shall not add unto the word which I command you, neither shall ye diminish ought from it, that ye may keep the commandments of the LORD your God which I command you.” ... Psalms 119:139-141, “My zeal hath consumed me, because mine enemies have forgotten thy words. Thy word is very pure: therefore thy servant loveth it. I am small and despised: yet do not I forget thy precepts.”

I love David's spirit in Psalms 119:139-140. David was consumed with zeal, upset that his enemies had FORGOTTEN GOD'S WORD. David got excited over the purity of God's Word!!! David fully understood that changing what God said is a woeful evil! The psalmist called God's Words, “VERY PURE, in Psalms 119:140. According to the American Bible Society, there are approximately 900 English Bibles today! Sadly, Bob Jones University sanctions this mess! The Devil is at work in Bob Jones University (BJU). I say that kindly, but on the authority of the Holy Scriptures! Here is the official Statement Of Faith on BJU from their website:
“Bob Jones University holds to the verbal, plenary inspiration of the Bible in the original manuscripts and that God has supernaturally preserved His inspired words in the totality of extant manuscript evidence. 
The position of the University on biblical translations has not changed since the founding of the school in 1927. Although Bob Jones University does not hold to a King James Only position, and from the founder to the present administration, we have never taken the position that there can be only one good translation in the English language, we continue to use the King James Version (KJV) as the campus standard in the undergraduate classroom and chapel pulpit.” [emphasis added]
SOURCE: BJU Statement Of Faith
There are some major problems and hypocrisies with the preceding BJU position:
  1. There are no original manuscripts today, so if only the originals were inspired, then we don't have a perfect inspired Bible today (which is what BJU teaches).
  2. BJU says God has supernaturally preserved His inspired words in the TOTALITY OF THE EXTANT (existent) manuscripts. That means they sanction the heretical Greek of Brooke Westcott and Fenton Hort (which is what the Jehovah's Witnesses use).  
  3. Why would God supernaturally preserve His Words in TWO different manuscripts, from two different ancient sources (Antioch, Syria and Alexandria, Egypt), which drastically disagree on some key passages?
  4. The Alexandrian text attacks the deity of Jesus Christ in many key passages. Although only 2% of manuscript text disagree, they affect key passages concerning the godhead and deity of Jesus. 
  5. What would be God's reason for preserving His inspired PURE WORDS in two differing texts which disagree? Since God is not the author of confusion, why would He supernaturally preserve His inspired PURE WORDS in 900 English Bible versions? 
  6. The man with two watches never knows what time it is. How can BJU claim that we have God's supernaturally preserved Words today, since we have more than one authority to choose from? God only authored ONE HOLY BIBLE! 
  7. BJU deceitfully claims that they haven't changed since 1927, but they have changed, by going along with the ever-changing Bible-corrupting movement in America.
  8. BJU again lies, claiming that there cannot be only one good translation in the English language, but there in fact can ONLY BE ONLY ONE correct Bible in any language! A translation is either right or wrong! Furthermore, BJU ignores the fact that they are sanctioning more than one ancient manuscript, which is impossible, because God only wrote ONE BOOK! BJU is straddling the fence! 
  9. By promoting TWO AUTHORITIES, the apostate leaders and Bible professors at BJU prove they are indifferent and don't care about truth! Right doctrine matters! These new Bible versions in many cases pervert the meaning of repentance
  10. ALL of the modern Bible revisions corrupt Psalms 12:6-7, changing it from God preserves His PURE WORDS, to God protects His SAINTS instead. Why would they do this? The answer is obvious—because wicked men are tampering with God's promise to preserve His VERY PURE WORDS forever (Psalms 119:139-140). 
It is a very serious offense to tamper with the inspired Word of God. What saith the Scripture? ...
Psalms 138:2, “I will worship toward thy holy temple, and praise thy name for thy lovingkindness and for thy truth: for thou hast magnified thy word above all thy name. 
Psalms 12:6-7, “The words of the LORD are pure words: as silver tried in a furnace of earth, purified seven times. Thou shalt keep them, O LORD, thou shalt preserve them from this generation for ever.” 
2nd John 1:11, “For he that biddeth him God speed is partaker of his evil deeds.
2nd Corinthians 2:17, “For we are not as many, which corrupt the word of God: but as of sincerity, but as of God, in the sight of God speak we in Christ.”
Sadly, BJU laughs at the matter, shaking their fists at God in defiance. They couldn't care less, which tells me they don't fear God. Revelation 22:19, “And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book.” To corrupt the Word of God is effectively the same as rejecting Jesus as one's Savior. That is why God warns in Revelation 22:19, that He will remove anyone's name from the Book of Life who tampers with His Word. Changing what God said is a woeful evil! BJU has blood on their hands, for promoting corruptible seed. 


There Was Only The King James Bible Before 1881

The most important thing you need to realize dear reader, is that the whole reason Satan introduced a SECOND AUTHORITY in 1881 (the year Brooke Westcott and Fenton Hort introduced their work: “The New Testament In The Original Greek”) was to challenge GOD'S AUTHORITY! The serpent did this to Eve in Genesis 3:1, when he changed God's Word to say the exact opposite of what He had commanded Adam and Eve. Whereas God has told Eve she could eat freely of ALL THE TREES (except one) in Genesis 2:16-17; the serpent misquoted God as saying that Eve couldn't eat of ANY OF THE TREES. By subtly changing what God had said, the serpent deceived Eve, as he is deceiving millions of churchgoers today with counterfeit Bible versions. 

What Bob Jones University and their alumni are really doing is STRADDLING THE FENCE. They don't want to get their hands dirty. They don't want to be laughed at, rejected, called unscholarly, made fun of, and ridiculed as a cult for taking a stand for the King James Bible. So as cowards they claim to use the King James Bible, while at the same time sanctioning and selling the corrupt Alexandrian revisions. God said He vomits out LUKEWARM believers in Revelation 3:15-16. Why, Oh why, doesn't Bob Jones College and their graduates care about the purity of God's Word? By bidding Godspeed to the Devil's corrupt Bible versions, BJU are partaker of Satan's evil deeds. 


Satan Set A Precedent To CHANGE God's Word

You need to realize friend, that the horrible precedent of CHANGING THE BIBLE was established in the year 1881. Faithful Christians have a faithful unchanging Bible (Matthew 24:35), authored by a faithful unchanging God (Malachi 3:6; Hebrews 13:8)! The modern Bible revisions keep changing!!! I just read in the news about a new Bible coming out this year called, the 'Literal Standard Version' (LSV). As if that's not bad enough, Christianity Today (CT) magazine is calling for another Bible revision!!! Where does this insanity stop? Bob Jones University sanctions all this mess, because they just don't care, A.W.O.L. from what Pastor Jack Hyles rightly called: 'The Battle Of The Ages.' They are serving mammon instead of God (Luke 16:13). I say that, to their shame, with all humility as a servant of God. 

The truth is that Bob Jones University doesn't want to fight the good fight of faith. They don't want to suffer persecution for the cause of Jesus Christ. They don't want to be put outside the gate with Jesus. They simply don't care about the purity of God's inspired Words. No one who sanctions all of the EXTANT (existent) manuscripts of the Bible cares about the purity of the Word of God, because they all say something different. If you don't believe me, take a look at 1st Timothy 3:16


I Am Banned From Attending Harvest Baptist Church On Guam

I tremendously love the folks at Harvest Baptist Church (HBC) on Guam, whose pastors drove me out of their church in 2014 for telling the truth. Their pastors have also banned me from returning. In 2017 I humbly requested permission 3 times to return, but they cruelly told me to “Go elsewhere!” What was my great offense? I simply raised a King James Bible only flag! The straw that broke the camel's back was when I handed a hardcopy of Pastor Al Lacy's excellent truthful book called, “NIV: The Antichrist's Bible! I love the pastors at Harvest (God knows my heart), and have a strong burden from God to help them see the truth, as a good friend does, but they are ungodly hard-hearted men (just like BJU). 

Ironically, Evangelist Tom Ferrell said those very words from behind the pulpit at HBC—“A FRIEND HELPS A FRIEND TO SEE!” They talk the talk, but they don't walk the walk at Harvest. When I kindly showed them THE TRUTH, that the Devil has corrupted the modern Bible versions, and that Pastor John MacArthur is preaching a false gospel of Calvinism, I was counted as their enemy at Harvest. Woe be unto Harvest Baptist Church when they stand before the Lord at the Judgment Seat of Christ, for both rejecting the truth and rejecting their brother who told the truth!!! I feel sorry for the people, who are as sheep, being misled to believe lies. 

Dear reader, I am not bitter at these people, I am frustrated that they don't care. I am hurt that they despise and shun me away for being their friend, for sincerely trying to help them, for loving them unconditionally with God's love. Tragically, they are sinfully indifferent. I am frustrated that right doctrine doesn't matter to the Bob Jones crowd. The modern Bible revisions, in hundreds of places, alter theological doctrine in the churches. For example: 1st Corinthians 1:18 in the King James Bible says that believers “ARE SAVED”; but many of the modern revisions change it to ARE BEING SAVED, which conveys an entirely different meaning to the reader. Words form sentences, which convey meaning, that shape doctrine. Another example is the removal of the great theological word imputation.” It truly DOES MATTER which Bible we use! Harvest Baptist Church on Guam sadly doesn't care—they don't care about the purity of God's Word, they don't care about the accuracy of the Gospel, and they don't care about a hurting sinner like me!!! 

The Alexandrian Cult Series (Dr. Peter S. Ruckman)

Don't Touch The Word Of God

Harvest Baptist Church helps orphans at their church. I tell you truthfully, God would rather see a billion babies die from starvation, than to see one Bible verse corrupted! I know that is true! God killed a man just for touching the Ark Of God, who was simply trying to steady the Ark as it wobbled, to prevent it from toppling over. The lesson is very clear in this true Bible story—DON'T TOUCH THE WORD OF GOD!!! 
2nd Samuel 6:6-7, “And when they came to Nachon's threshingfloor, Uzzah put forth his hand to the ark of God, and took hold of it; for the oxen shook it. And the anger of the LORD was kindled against Uzzah; and God smote him there for his error; and there he died by the ark of God.
Yet, BJU and their graduates laugh at this matter. I've had Harvest laugh in my face! This whole ordeal over the Bible is a humorous joke to them, but I promise you that their arrogance will come to an end, when they stand before God someday. What seems so funny to them now, will bring them woeful tears of sorrow and regret in eternity, when they learn that I was right about the corrupt modern Bible revisions (which they promote), and they were wrong! They are helping Satan, and one day they will realize this fact TO THEIR HORROR! God does not reward a believer who labors unlawfully! God does not reward men and women who pull on the same rope as the Devil!!! 
“What He at first inspired, the Lord God has now preserved. Therefore, when I hold the King James Bible in my hand, I hold the inspired text. It was inspired and now that inspired Word has been protected, preserved and provided for us!” —Dr. Shelton Smith

The Great Bible Doctrine Of Imputation

Romans 4:5-6, “But to him that worketh not, but believeth on him that justifieth the ungodly, his faith is counted for righteousness. Even as David also describeth the blessedness of the man, unto whom God imputeth righteousness without works.”

Ask most church members today what “imputation” means and they have no idea what you're talking about. That is because the word “impute has been completely removed from the modern Bible versions. Look through Evangelist Ray Comfort's “THE EVIDENCE BIBLE” from cover-to-cover and you'll never find where he comments on the vital doctrine of “imputation.” Look at the listing of words in the index at the back of Ray Comfort's best-selling book, “THE EVIDENCE BIBLE.” There are over 1,000 words listed, but no mention of “impute” or “imputation.” The is because Mr. Comfort uses the Amplified Version (AMP) that removes the word impute” completely. Out of sight, out of mind! 

Modern theology is virtually devoid of the great Bible doctrine of imputation. In the following passage of Scripture, the Satanic Easy-To-Read Version (ERV) butchers Romans 4:5-6, completely removing the word “impute” from the ERV. The KJB is correct below, but the second quote is from the ERV, which is awful, heretical and wicked . . .
KING JAMES BIBLE (KJB) — Romans 4:5-6, “But to him that worketh not, but believeth on him that justifieth the ungodly, his faith is counted for righteousness. Even as David also describeth the blessedness of the man, unto whom God imputeth righteousness without works.” [emphasis added]
EASY-TO-READ VERSION (ERV) — Romans 4:5-6, “But people cannot do any work that will make them right with God. So they must trust in him. Then he accepts their faith, and that makes them right with him. He is the one who makes even evil people right. David said the same thing when he was talking about the blessing people have when God accepts them as good without looking at what they have done.” [emphasis added]
They've horribly corrupted this Scripture passage! Do you see what they've sinfully done? Whereas the King James Bible teaches that God imputes the righteousness of Christ to the believer, the ERV foolishly says God accepts a person as good by faith, which means something different entirely. God doesn't accept someone as “good” by faith; but rather, God attributes His righteousness to us by faith. That is what imputation means! Philippians 3:9, “And be found in him, not having mine own righteousness, which is of the law, but that which is through the faith of Christ, the righteousness which is of God by faith.”

God told us to “study” the Bible in 2nd Timothy 2:15. What is so hard about looking up the meaning of “imputeth?” By removing this important theological word from the KJB and replacing it with some religious nonsense, the doctrine of imputation has effectively been stricken from the ERV (which is a typical corruption in all modern Bible versions). Satan is changing the Bible into a spiritual book instead of a theological book.

The basis of obtaining justification is through God's righteousness being IMPUTED to the sinner through faith in Christ, Who paid our sin debt on the cross. Jesus took our sins upon Himself on the cross, paying a debt that He did not owe. Jesus is our sin payment! When we BELIEVE the Gospel, God takes Jesus' righteousness, and places it upon us. God imputes our sins to Jesus, and then He imputes Jesus' righteousness to us. Isn't that beautiful!!! This is why we don't need any works to be saved, because Christ paid it all by His sacrifice on the cross, and the sprinkling of His shed blood upon the Mercy Seat in Heaven (Hebrews 9:12, 24; 12:24).

The corrupt ERV says in Romans 4:5, “So they must trust in him. Then he accepts their faith, and that makes them right with him.” This is wrong! It is not our faith that makes us right with God. It is Christ's sacrifice on the cross and His applied blood sprinkled in Heaven that makes us right with God, in response to our faith in the Gospel. The ERV obliterates the entire doctrine of imputation. Christ died on the cross as our LAMB (John 1:29), and He raised up bodily three days later and ascended into Heaven as our HIGH PRIEST (Romans 8:34; Hebrews 4:14-16).

The Neglected Doctrine of Imputation

The words “counted” and “imputeth” are the same Greek word, so they mean the same thing in these two verses (Romans 4:5-6). The KJB says that a man's faith is counted for righteousness. We are told that God imputeth righteousness to a man without works (labor to earn Heaven). Since we all have NO self-righteousness of our own to offer or impress God (Isaiah 64:6), the only way we can be saved is by obtaining Christ's righteousness. This is possible only through faith in the Gospel.

The Bible-butchers should have left the word IMPUTETH alone. It is a beautiful word. How lazy can people get? Entire books have been written about this one important theological term. In Romans 4:6, the ERV has rendered the word “IMPUTETH” as “God accepts them as good without looking at what they have done,” which utterly fails to inform the reader why God accepts them as good. It is only because of Christ's suffering on the cross that we are able by faith to be declared righteous. It is not that God accepts us as good; but rather, He accepts us on the basis of Christ's righteousness which has been credited (imputed) to us by faith.

Only God Can Love Us The Way We Want To Be Loved

Matthew 22:36-40, “Master, which is the great commandment in the law? Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind. This is the first and great commandment. And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets.” 

As my regular web visitors know, I have been in love with a young Christian woman in my neighborhood for the past three years. I mentioned her quite often before Christmas last year, hoping to patch things up with the folks at Harvest Baptist Church on Guam, so I could hopefully get to know her better at church. Unfortunately, things fell through. That is the price for telling THE TRUTH! I don't think she likes me writing about her (she reads my writings) which is why I stopped mentioning her in my articles. Ladies know how to send signals to guys, and I'm a fast learner. I don't want to make her feel uncomfortable in any way. I haven't mentioned her for three months. She makes me happy, just knowing she is nearby. I get really happy when I see her! She's my Coronavirus! She's my sunshine! I'm dying with love...lol. That's why they call it the “Corona” virus, because the virus cells are shaped like the sun and its shining rays! You Are My Sunshine

I have to apologize to God sometimes, that I pray for her more than other things I should pray about, because she means so much to me. All I can do is pray, stay busy working on my website ministry to try not to think about her, and hope she might one day like me back. If it's not meant to be, then time will tell. I already live with a broken heart continually. Philippians 1:21, “For to me to live is Christ, and to die is gain.”

Looking For Love In All The Wrong Places

There's a popular old country song by Johnny Lee from 1980 called: 'Looking For Love In All The Wrong Places.' I play pedal steel guitar, so I really like country and southern Gospel music. I realized a long time ago, that no woman could ever love me the way I desire to be loved. Even the best Christian woman is still a sinner, and we all fall short of being what we should be oftentimes. We have all sinned. If I am ever fortunate enough to marry a woman who reciprocates my love for her, I will be very blessed indeed. Only a Christian woman can love me back with God's love. 

That is why the Bible forbids a believer to marry an unbeliever in 1st Corinthians 6:14-17. An unsaved person does not have God's Holy Spirit, so they cannot have the fruit of the SpiritLove is a “fruit” of the Holy Spirit! God's love is unconditional. The Bible mentions “fruit” (singular) in Ephesians 5:22-23, not “fruits” (plural). Therefore, you don't first get love, and then work at getting patience, and then work on getting joy; but rather, we get those qualities all at once, together, as we walk in the Spirit as God's child. I like hearing Gary Chapman sing this Gospel song: 'He Keeps Me Singing.' 

The gifts of the Spirit aren't given TO ME, but THROUGH ME to give TO YOU! I learned that precious truth from Pastor Jack Hyles in this helpful MP3 sermon called: “THOU SHALT COVET.” We should earnestly covet the best gifts the Bible says (1st Corinthians 12:31). I realized long ago that only a Christian woman, who loves God, can even begin to love me the same way that I love her. I have God's love in my heart! But if I never find such a wife, Jesus is the lover of my soul!!! Love is not 50/50, we are supposed to love 100% even if we get 0% back; but the happiest marriages are where both couples love each other. A happy marriage is two people making a life for each other! 


The Great Commandment Is To Love

Brother Lester Roloff (1914-1982) used to say that the two greatest Commandments are really just one—TO LOVE! One of my favorite sermons by Pastor Jack Hyles is called: 'The Greatest Sins That One Can Commit.' I also wrote an article about this topic, because it is so important. I love this quote from the sermon by Brother Hyles: 
“Your neighbour is anybody on the face of this earth, a creature of almighty God; and if you do not love your neighbour as yourself, you've committed a sin worse than stealing, worse than lying, worse than murder, worse than adultery, worse than covetousness—God said it, I didn't say it, take issue with God about it! You Pharisees, take issue with God about it!” —Pastor Jack Hyles, a quote from the precious sermon titled: “The Two Greatest Sins That One Can Commit
“I cannot love you as I love myself until I love God as I ought to love Him.” —Dr. Jack Hyles

I love everyone with God's unconditional love! The apostle Paul grew in God's love to the place where he became lonely, because the people he loved couldn't reciprocate his depth of love. 2nd Corinthians 12:15, “And I will very gladly spend and be spent for you; though the more abundantly I love you, the less I be loved.” I know how Paul felt, and I rejoice in my soul for it, because I would much rather love than be loved, for Christ's sake! 
“If there was no greater love than the death of your Son, then there is no greater evidence of your love! Think about that statement! If you did not love everyone, how would I know that it included me? If Christ did not pay for all sin, for everyone, how do I know You paid for mine?” —Pastor Ralph “Yankee” Arnold, “How Do I Know God Really Loves Me? - Part 2” | Part 1)

You Don't Know What To Pray For And Neither Do I

Romans 8:26-28,  “ Likewise the Spirit also helpeth our infirmities: for we know not what we should pray for as we ought : but the Spirit it...
