Does God Allow Some Christians To Starve To Death?

Hebrews 11:36-38, And others had trial of cruel mockings and scourgings, yea, moreover of bonds and imprisonment: They were stoned, they were sawn asunder, were tempted, were slain with the sword: they wandered about in sheepskins and goatskins; being destitute, afflicted, tormented; (Of whom the world was not worthy:) they wandered in deserts, and in mountains, and in dens and caves of the earth.

Does God allow some of His children to starve to death? Yes, absolutely! If God allowed saints to be eaten by lions, pulled apart of horses (quartered), and sawn into pieces, do you really think that God won't allow them to starve to death? As humans we place the utmost value on this temporary life, but God doesn't! God sees what we don't see. The Lord took away a man's life for sincerely trying to steady the Ark Of The Covenant, to prevent it from toppling over (2nd Samuel 6:7). Why did God kill him? I think the answer is obvious, that no one ought to tamper with the inspired Word of God. God doesn't need man's help to stabilize His Word!!! All of these ungodly scholars and Bible publishers today, who keep printing new Bible revisions left and right, are cursed by God! And so also are Bible colleges like Bob Jones University accursed by God by using, selling and sanctioning the Devil's Bibles.

One of my sincere web visitors recently asked me what the Bible says about God's guarantee of provisions for His children. I kindly replied that there are no Biblical guarantees of God's material provisions. He responded by saying that he disagrees, believing that God does promise to financially provide for Christians. The man cited the following Scripture passage in defense of his position. Philippians 4:19, “But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus.” Taken by itself, this Bible verse seems to teach that God will always provide for His children, no matter what. But is that true? One thing that I learned a long time ago in studying the Word of God, is that you NEVER base any doctrine upon only one Bible verse. The correct way to interpret the Bible is to compare Scripture with Scripture. There are many other passages of Scripture which teach us that Christians do suffer, including starving to death.

In the Old Testament, sin caused God to afflict the land with famine. 2nd Samuel 21:1, “Then there was a famine in the days of David three years, year after year; and David enquired of the LORD. And the LORD answered, It is for Saul, and for his bloody house, because he slew the Gibeonites.King Saul had murdered innocent people, which caused God to afflict Israel with famine. I have no doubt that many people died from the famine. A severe shortage of food always results in sickness, disease and plague caused by malnutrition. Remember, God caused this! 1st Kings 8:37, “If there be in the land famine, if there be pestilence, blasting, mildew, locust, or if there be caterpiller; if their enemy besiege them in the land of their cities; whatsoever plague, whatsoever sickness there be;”

Likewise, during Elijah's time there was a woeful famine in Israel. 2nd Kings 6:25, “And there was a great famine in Samaria: and, behold, they besieged it, until an ass's head was sold for fourscore pieces of silver, and the fourth part of a cab of dove's dung for five pieces of silver.” Eighty (fourscore) pieces of silver in today's value would be about $500! Would you pay $500 for a donkey's head to eat? A cab is a dry measure of about 2 quarts. So a fourth of a can is 1 pint. One pint of bird dung cost people about $35 during the famine. You sure would if you were hungry enough! The very thought is gross. Luke 4:25, “But I tell you of a truth, many widows were in Israel in the days of Elias, when the heaven was shut up three years and six months, when great famine was throughout all the land;” 

Cannibalism In the Holy Bible

During times of famine, people have historically turned to cannibalism. The following true story makes me angry. This passage teaches us a valuable lesson about how rotten people can be, and the desperate things that evil people are capable of, and how people will take advantage of our vulnerabilities if we let them...
2nd Kings 6:26-30, “And as the king of Israel was passing by upon the wall, there cried a woman unto him, saying, Help, my lord, O king. And he said, If the LORD do not help thee, whence shall I help thee? out of the barnfloor, or out of the winepress? And the king said unto her, What aileth thee? And she answered, This woman said unto me, Give thy son, that we may eat him to day, and we will eat my son to morrow. So we boiled my son, and did eat him: and I said unto her on the next day, Give thy son, that we may eat him: and she hath hid her son. And it came to pass, when the king heard the words of the woman, that he rent his clothes; and he passed by upon the wall, and the people looked, and, behold, he had sackcloth within upon his flesh.”
When you are poor, hurting and hungry, evil people will always take advantage of you if you let them. People will do to you whatever you allow them to get away with! Proverbs 1:10, “My son, if sinners entice thee, consent thou not.” These women were starving in hunger! The one woman was evil for even suggesting to eat their children. She suggested that they eat the other woman's baby first, today, and then eat her baby tomorrow. The first woman lied, deceiving the other woman. There are so many lessons to be learned from this creepy but very realistic Scripture passage:
  1. Never agree to do wrong! - Just pre-decide that even if you starve to death, you will never do wrong! Even if the stars fall, I am going to do right. It blows my mind that this woman was so foolish, that she would even consider killing and eating her own child.
  2. Always be on guard against people tempting you to do evil - Prisons are filled with people who never would have even thought about committing a heinous crime, but a trusted friend or acquittance of theirs DID suggest it! People often commit crimes in a group that they would never commit alone. Peer pressure can be good or evil. Proverbs 1:10 says if sinners entice thee, consent thou not! You boldly tell them as Jesus told Peter: “Get thee behind me, Satan!”
  3. Be careful who you choose for friends or live with - Amnon had a friend. 2nd Samuel 13:3, “But Amnon had a friend, whose name was Jonadab, the son of Shimeah David's brother: and Jonadab was a very subtil man.” Jonadab contrived a wicked plot for Amnon to rape his half-sister, which he did. As a consequence, 2 years later Tamar's brother Absalom murdered Amnon in revenge. Sin always thrills and then it kills. Sin fascinates and then it assassinates. The Devil is a beautiful liar!
  4. Evil people will always leave you holding the bag - There is no honor among thieves! Although there is a code of conduct among prison inmates, there is no honor among criminals. If you think you can trust evildoers, you are a fool.
  5. Avoid advice from ungodly people - We ought to be leery of any advice from ungodly people. Psalms 1:1 teaches people who want wisdom not to walk in the counsel of the ungodly. You ought not take advice from immoral people, or anyone who does not have faith in God.
  6. Ungodly people have confused and warped morals - The woman in the preceding story wasn't upset for killing and eating her baby with her roommate, but because the other woman lied and didn't also murder her baby so they could eat it. The betrayed woman didn't care about her child at all. That reminds me of abortionists today! Sadly, convicted murderers in most U.S. states have far more rights in 2020 than human life in the womb. The state of California refuses to execute the Golden State Killer (who brutally raped 51 women and murdered 13 people), while abortion is perfectly legal. God's judgment is looming over America!
Back to the main point, God does allow Christians to starve sometimes. In Philippians 4:19 God promises to supply all of a believer's needs. Paul was encouraging the saints to give to God's work. But this is a general promises, not a guarantee. Likewise, please read James 5:14-15, “Is any sick among you? let him call for the elders of the church; and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord: And the prayer of faith shall save the sick, and the Lord shall raise him up; and if he have committed sins, they shall be forgiven him.” Does God promise to always heal the sick in response to prayer? No, we are taught to pray and trust God. Sometimes people still die, even though we are praying for them. We must always trust God, and never place Him on trial.

Sometimes God's children suffer and lack provisions within God's perfect will. I love those two words in our text Scripture passage from Hebrews 12:36-38... “AND OTHERS.” We often hear health, wealth and prosperity preachers foolishly proclaiming that a Christian who GIVES money to them, will not be able to receive the blessing because it will be so big from God. Such preachers have been proven to be fakes again and again. Some believers think that if we run from God, He might put us in a wheelchair and allow bad things to happen to us. But as we just read, the Bible says a believer may be in GOD'S PERFECT WILL, and still have those horrible things happen to them. John the Baptist was in God's perfect will and lost his head. Likewise, the Apostle James was in God's perfect will, whom Herod beheaded with the sword.

I do not agree with John Piper on Lordship Salvation, but I agree with him in this article which explains why God allows some saints to starve to death. I also found this helpful article. I wouldn't debate the issue, but I believe the Bible is clear that sometimes Christians do go hungry. Sometimes it was because of national sin in the Bible. There is still famine in Africa today. In many places ungodly warlords confiscate food shipments from the United Nations, and the people starve. In India hundreds of millions of people are starving, while piles of wheat rot. The bottom line is that there is no promise in the Holy Bible of God's guarantee for material provisions in this life. God is good, always, but we will not always understand why He does what He does. Nearly all Americans have a distorted view of reality, because we live in a spoiled nation and time of plenty. In many other places in the world today, millions of people are hungry and starving. We Americans are so undeserving of God's goodness and grace.

A Great Lesson We Can Learn From Our Savior

Matthew 8:23-26, “And when he was entered into a ship, his disciples followed him. And, behold, there arose a great tempest in the sea, insomuch that the ship was covered with the waves: but he was asleep. And his disciples came to him, and awoke him, saying, Lord, save us: we perish. And he saith unto them, Why are ye fearful, O ye of little faith? Then he arose, and rebuked the winds and the sea; and there was a great calm.

I love this beautiful story. The Lord and His disciples were on a ship on the Sea of Galilee. Set in the hills of northern Israel, the Sea of Galilee is situated nearly 700 feet below sea level. It is nearly eight miles wide at its widest point, and more than 12 miles long from north to south. In places, the sea plunges to depths of 200 feet. Due to its low-lying position in the rift valley, surrounded by hills, the sea can get sudden violent storms. Such was the case in our text passage. The Bible says a sudden storm arose, and the waves covered the ship, but Jesus was asleep. I sometimes get the wrong idea that this was a big ship, and Jesus was down below, but it wasn't that big of a ship. There was no lower level. The Lord was asleep while the waves were crashing against the ship. 

So the apostles woke Jesus up, in a moment of panic. The Lord stays calms and asks them: “Why are ye fearful, O ye of little faith?Then Jesus rebuked the wind and waves and there was a GREAT CALM. This is such a precious Bible truth for every Christian believer to learn and remember. When the winds and waves of life are crashing upon us, and the storm is raging, our Lord is always calmly sitting upon His throne in Heaven. Our Lord calmly dwells within our body as God's child (1st Corinthians 3:16-17; Romans 8:9; 1st John 3:24). Jesus never panics! God never remembers something He forgot to do. Nothing ever occurs to God. The Lord is never surprised or caught off guard. Therefore, we can always have calm in the storm too, if we'll simply trust the Lord. 

For the believer, Jesus is with us as much today as He was with the disciples in that ship. Hebrews 13:5, “Let your conversation be without covetousness; and be content with such things as ye have: for he hath said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee.Jesus is always with us wherever we go, and in whatever situation we face. If you get mugged in a dark alley, Jesus was with you the whole time. We live in a fallen world. Therefore, we need to be careful where we go, and who we trust, and what we disclose to others, and so forth. But no matter how diligent we may strive to protect ourselves and our loved ones, we can never predict the future or what may happen. It is important not to blame God when bad things happen. Ecclesiastes 9:11b warns that time and chance happeneth to them all.

The World Is Waiting For The Antichrist, But We For Jesus Christ

In 2021 there is much worry over the COVID-19 pandemic. I have received many emails from web visitors who are worried if this vaccine is the Mark Of The Beast. Others speculate that it will lead into the Beast system. I tell them all the same thing, that I simply don't know. I do not think this is the Mark Of The Beast. The technology is here for the mark. Implants have been available for decades now. In many countries people are begging to have medical implants put into their body, to store their medical information. There is new technology now which allows wireless recharging of implanted devices, such as heart pace devices. 

Whatever the mark will be, it will involve a denial of one's Christian faith. No one will accidentally be injected with a mark against their will or knowledge. It doesn't work that way. The Mark Of The Beast will definitely involve financial transactions, because the Bible says you won't be able to buy or sell without it. The Bible says the name of the Beast is 666, not the mark. The mark may or may not be 666. We do not know, but I wouldn't think it will be 666. The Bible plainly says that 666 will be the number of a man. Revelation 13:17-18, “And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name. Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six.Please notice carefully that there are three things mentioned:

  1. the mark
  2. the name of the Beast
  3. the number of his name, which is 666

I think there is a significance between these three items, and they ought not be assumed to be the same thing. The “Beast” (or dangerous animal) refers to the coming Man of Sin, the Antichrist (or “in place of Christ). Most people think anti means against, and he certainly will be against Christ; but the Biblical meaning is in place of” Christ. That is, the Beast will masquerade as the true Messiah—deceiving the world that He is the promised Messiah, who is come to save the world from itself. The Antichrist will worship “the god of forces” (Daniel 11:38b), which is New Age.

I have never been able to figure out the identity of the Beast, nor will you be able to, because he is not here yet. When the time comes, wise men will be able to identify the Beast, whose name will compute (count) to the number 666. Already there is much speculation in the world. The Masonic Washington Monument in our nation's capital, stands 6,666 inches feet tall, and 666 inches wide. How's that for creepy? Needles to say, Freemasons are greatly anticipating the coming of their false messiah, whose father is Lucifer (John 8:44). Freemasons worship their own all-inclusive version of God, whom they call “The Great Architect.” Their god is none other than Lucifer, the angel of light, or as Albert Pike called him, Adonai.

I don't believe anyone will be able to identify with any certainty WHO the Antichrist is until he finally appears. I believe the Church (all the saints, dead and alive) must be caught up (1st Thessalonians 4:17b) first at the Rapture. I firmly believe that the Bible clearly teaches a Pretribulation Rapture of the saints. Nothing else makes sense doctrinally. Through deductive reasoning and the process of elimination, rightly dividing the Word of Truth, we can only conclude a Pretrib Rapture if we take the Bible at face value. Nothing else works doctrinally.

Jesus Was Asleep During The Storm

I intentionally mixed these two topics of the end times with staying calm in the Lord. Many people are wound up, tired, frustrated and worried, but there is no need to be at all. Matthew 6:31-34, “Therefore take no thought, saying, What shall we eat? or, What shall we drink? or, Wherewithal shall we be clothed? (For after all these things do the Gentiles seek:) for your heavenly Father knoweth that ye have need of all these things. But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you. Take therefore no thought for the morrow: for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself. Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof.” I love that! The Lord said we have enough problems to deal with today, without worrying about things that haven't even happened. 

Since we don't even know if we'll be alive tomorrow, we ought not concern ourselves with the future. This is an important key to the Christian life—one day at a time! I have received quite a few emails from people who are overly concerned about where this pandemic is leading. They are worried about forced vaccinations. They are worried if this will lead into the Mark Of The Beast. They are worried about food shortages, crime sprees and whether they should buy a gun or not. Good night in the morning folks! James 5:13, “Is any among you afflicted? let him pray. Is any merry? let him sing psalms.” 

When I start to worry, I pray. I run to the Scriptures. I go to the Psalms. David was in dire straits when he penned much of the Psalms, which God gave to us to comfort us in our sorrows, loss, burdens, pain and afflictions (Romans 15:4). David caused many of his own problems by sinning (Psalms 51). You'll find the words “enemy” or “enemies” mentioned 105 times in the Psalms. David has many enemies for various reasons. When David returned love toward people for their hatred, they hated him even more. Psalms 109:4-5, “For my love they are my adversaries: but I give myself unto prayer. And they have rewarded me evil for good, and hatred for my love.” No matter what your burden is dear friend, take it to the Lord in prayer. God is good no matter what! God is just and faithful. Blessed be the name of the Lord. Jesus is precious!!!

I am often reminded of our text passage from Matthew 8:24, “And, behold, there arose a great tempest in the sea, insomuch that the ship was covered with the waves: but he was asleep.” We don't need to panic with the unsaved world. We don't need to worry. God does not want us to fret, worry or be stressed out over life. John 6:33, “These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.” When everything is wrong here on earth, or seems wrong in our life, we need to BE OF GOOD CHEER, knowing that our name is written in Heaven, and that all is well up in Heaven. 

Colossians 3:1-2, “If ye then be risen with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ sitteth on the right hand of God. Set your affection on things above, not on things on the earth.” Where are your passions my friend? What burns your heart? Millions of people are into sports. Now there's nothing wrong with sports. But you need to set your mind on heavenly things. Your Savior doesn't live in Dallas Texas with the Cowboys, He is seated on the Father's right-hand in Heaven (Colossians 3:1). And Jesus lives in your body and soul if you are saved (Romans 8:9). Sports are okay (I personally hate professional sports), but the Bible tells us to set our affection on THINGS ABOVE, NOT ON THINGS ON THE EARTH. Is your job your God? Is your hobby your God? No wonder so many people are messed up spiritually today, when their mind is set upon the things of this earth.

You can have the perfect peace of God which passeth all understanding, if you'll commit everything to God in prayer (Philippians 4:6-7). You can have God's peace, if you'll think on whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things” (Philippians 4:8). I have been emotionally, physically and financially hurt by dozens of rotten people in my lifetime, but I just give those painful memories whenever they surface to the Lord above. I lay all my burdens down at the feet of Jesus and leave them there! That is an act of faith dear friend. God is pleased by our faith (Hebrews 11:6). 

Ill close with this truth. The Bible says that we walk BY FAITH, not BY SIGHT. 2nd Corinthians 5:7, “(For we walk by faith, not by sight:)That means when I feel like God doesn't care as far as I can see, I know that He does care (1st Peter 5:7). When I feel like God has abandoned me as far as I CAN SEE, by faith I know that God will never leave nor forsake me (Hebrews 13:5). When I feel like God is unfair as far as I CAN SEE, by faith I know that God is fair (1st John 1:9). I know God is faithful (1st Corinthians 1:9). LIVING BY FAITH means living according to the promises of God in the Bible, and not going by HOW I FEEL. Boy I sure hope you're getting this friend, because this is how you make it through the tough times of life. I know my Redeemer liveth. Job 13:15, “Though he slay me, yet will I trust in him: but I will maintain mine own ways before him.”

You and I can be asleep during the storms of life, just like Jesus. The Lord wasn't worried one bit. When all hell is breaking loose, and the waves of life's turmoil seem like they're about to capsize our ship, Jesus is always there to calm the storm. Psalms 119:165, “Great peace have they which love thy law: and nothing shall offend them.”

Sadly, We Need Socialism In America

Leviticus 19:13, Thou shalt not defraud thy neighbour, neither rob him: the wages of him that is hired shall not abide with thee all night until the morning. Proverbs 13:11, Wealth gotten by vanity shall be diminished: but he that gathereth by labour shall increase. Proverbs 21:13, Whoso stoppeth his ears at the cry of the poor, he also shall cry himself, but shall not be heard. Proverbs 28:8, He that by usury and unjust gain increaseth his substance, he shall gather it for him that will pity the poor. Proverbs 28:27, He that giveth unto the poor shall not lack: but he that hideth his eyes shall have many a curse.” 1st Timothy 6:10, For the love of money is the root of all evil: which while some coveted after, they have erred from the faith, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows.

I am against socialism and communism. Here is a 2 hour documentary about The Bloody History Of Communism. Democracy is mob rule, where the majority of public opinion weighs in. Communism is total government control. Russian dictator Vladimir Lenin said he could summarize communism with one statement: “Abolition of private property.” That statement makes sense when you understand that owning property gives someone rights. If you own the property, then you have the right to tell people what they can or cannot do on your property, or if they can even step foot onto your property. If the government owns everything, then you have little or no rights! Socialism is in between Democracy and Communism. Socialism is the road to communism! 

What is a socialist country? ...

A socialist country is a sovereign state in which everyone in society equally owns the factors of production. The four factors of production are labor, capital goods, natural resources and entrepreneurship. In a socialist country, people account for individual needs and social needs.

In other words, the Robin Hood way of doing things, where you forcefully take from the rich to give to the poor. What's the difference between socialism and communism ...

Both socialism and communism place great value on creating a more equal society and removal of class privilege. The main difference is that socialism is compatible with democracy and liberty, whereas Communism involves creating an 'equal society' through an authoritarian state, which denies basic liberties.

In a capitalist society, goods are produced for profits. This is why so many young people in America today are angry at the corporations. They see multi-billion dollar companies getting richer, while the government gives them tax breaks, and the American people struggle to make ends meet financially. It is true that HALF of all the wealth in America is owned by just 1% of the population. That is the result of capitalism. In a truly “free” society, capitalism works. But in a rigged economy like America, where our currency is artificially controlled, capitalism becomes a form of tyranny. The central banks print money out of thin air from nothing, and then lend it at interest to the government (on behalf of the people), plundering us further into debt to the banks. Americans owe over $27,000,000,000,000 to the central banks! Proverbs 22:7, “The rich ruleth over the poor, and the borrower is servant to the lender.

To understand why I said we need socialism in the United States, you need to understand that the central banks are evil. You need to understand how they operate, and that our American economy is based upon banking fraud. The Federal Reserve is privately owned. It is neither federal, nor do they have any so-called "reserve." Since 1971, when President Richard Nixon took our country off the Gold Standard, the U.S. Dollar has lost 82% of it's spending power. This is why the U.S. government for over 40 years have allowed the flood of illegal immigrants into the country—to provide cheap labor for corporations. This is why tens of millions of U.S. jobs have been outsourced to foreign countries—to exploit cheap slave labor. This was all necessary to compensate corporations for the loss of the dollar's value. American companies simply couldn't afford to pay high American wages and still make a profit.

Democratic Socialism Is Still Socialism

But wait, it gets more complicated, there's also something called "Democratic Socialism"...

Democratic socialism is defined as having a socialist economy in which the means of production are socially and collectively owned or controlled, alongside a democratic political system of government. Democratic socialists reject most self-described socialist states and Marxism–Leninism.

In other words, the proponents of Democratic Socialism want the best of both worlds—they want the benefits of Democracy, along with the benefits of Socialism, but without the fascist tyranny that is inherent to a socialist type of government (where the government confiscates the wealth of the wealthy). They are kidding themselves! You cannot have a friendly police state! Socialism is a bad thing. There are different forms of socialism

The basic principle of socialism sounds good—to make sure workers are treated fairly and everyone prospers equally at the end of the day. That is what socialism means “social.” The group prospers, not the individual. Everyone benefits. That sounds great, but there are some big problems with it. One problem is that is prevents people from becoming prosperous. If a man has an idea for a business, and he works hard to build that business, and it takes off and he becomes massively successful, socialism comes in and takes it all away from him. That is why Russia is such a horrible place today, where a third of its population lives in poverty. In the long-run, socialism and communism always fail.

In Scandinavian nations such as Norway, Denmark and Sweden today, they have a happy and healthy economy. Anyone can go to college for free in Sweden. That is awesome! Sweden has universal free healthcare for everyone. There is very low poverty in Sweden. American socialists errantly think drastically raising everyone's taxes is the answer. But as the following economist wisely points out, Sweden's people have a work ethic, high levels of social trust, and considerable social cohesion—none of which our crime-infested, distrustful, accusing, obese, depressed, angry and sin-loving American culture have!!! ...

Research has suggested that the Northern European success story has its roots in cultural rather than economic factors. The Scandinavian countries of Sweden, Norway and Denmark, which have a combined population roughly comparable to the greater New York City area, historically developed remarkably high levels of social trust, a robust work ethic and considerable social cohesion, according to economic experts and scholars such as Assar Lindbeck and Nima Sanandaji.

SOURCE: Bernie Sanders is wrong on democratic socialism in Sweden, and everywhere else 

That is exactly the point made by our nation's third U.S. President, John Adams...

“We have not government armed with power capable of contending with human passions unbridled by morality and religion. Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.” —U.S. President John Adams

Sweden's economic system only works because of the quality and character of its people, and somewhat honesty of its government. America is controlled by criminals. If you don't believe me, then please listen to your elected leaders. We cannot have an honest economy based on banking fraud! Sweden is about to become a cashless society. Mankind is depraved. No matter what type of economic and political system implemented, it won't work when humans become greedy, dishonest and selfish. As we have often seen, the U.S. government is above the law. 911 has never been legitimately investigated. Mena, Arkansas, has never been prosecuted for the massive drug trafficking's during the Clinton years as governor. The American newsmedia are a bunch of paid professional liars. Most news is sinister propaganda fabricated to shape public opinion. Guard your mind by questioning everything.

The Central Banks Are A Bigger Threat Than China Or Russia

Since about 1980, inflation has continue to skyrocket upward, while livable wages have hardly increased at all. The central banks cause income inequality, forcing many of the middleclass into homelessness. California's homelessness problem is very bad! And now President Joe Biden wants to turn the United States into a giant California! God help us! We wouldn't need socialism if we'd get rid of the Federal Reserve! But as long as a private group of thieving criminals control our nation's currency, Americans will financially suffer! If it weren't for the fraud of the central banks, Americans would have enough money to purchase health care insurance. How can citizens pay their bills if they don't have a job? Your job is in Mexico, Singapore, China, Vietnam, Malaysia, Japan, Taiwan and dozens of other countries.

President Donald Trump was a brilliant businessman. He understood the things I just said. For over 30 years China has been ripping off America! Mr. Trump put an end to that, but Joe Biden has already vowed in 2021 to undo the good that President Trump did. This is an insane way to run a government! Can you imagine if a large company switched CEO's every 4 to 8 years, who took the company all different directions? The company would falter and not prosper, just like our U.S. government is a failing entity. But I have never trusted Mr. Trump either, because he doesn't address the fraud in our banking system. No nation can prosper in a rigged system based on greed and fraud. Thomas Jefferson rightly warned:

“If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of their currency, first by inflation, then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up around them will deprive the people of all property until their children wake up homeless on the continent their Fathers conquered.... I believe that banking institutions are more dangerous to our liberties than standing armies.... The issuing power should be taken from the banks and restored to the people, to whom it properly belongs.”

I don't like socialism. I certainly don't want communism. Look what happened in 1936 communist Spain. Believe me, you don't want communism, and socialism is the road to communism! Sadly though, how else can the hurting American people survive, if the government doesn't provide them with free healthcare, education, food and housing? Housing is the most needy thing today in every homeless situation. A survey in Hawaii found that when provide housing, 60% of homeless people got off drugs and improved substantially. Roger Moore produced a 2007 documentary called “SICKO,” in which he reveals that tens of millions of Americans have died for mere lack of healthcare insurance. This is why I say that we desperately need socialism in America.

Capitalism Is Worthless In A Fraudulent Economic System

I am so sick and tired of hearing woefully ignorant Christians say stupid things like: “The government doesn't owe anybody anything.” We'll the government has no right to give control of our money to a private group of criminals! Since 1913, the criminal central banks have taken control over our currency. The banks caused The Great Depression. They exploited (and historically started) World Wars I and II to rip off billions of dollars from the American people. Congressman Ron Paul is 100% correct that the Federal Reserve must go! But no one takes his warnings seriously, and so the fraud continues. 

Americans continue to die without healthcare, because their jobs are in foreign countries. Illegal immigrants have stolen millions of jobs from Americans. And then our ungodly treasonous government treats those law breakers like citizens. Don't you see how criminals have destroyed our nation's sovereignty? We lost control of our country over a century ago. Now you understand Ephesians 6:12, “For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.

Either the fraudulent Federal Reserve banking system must go, or else we absolutely need socialism in the United States!!! I see millions of young people today who are confused. I don't blame their bleeding hearts for caring about suffering Americans, demanding socialism to provide for everyone; because those youth don't understand the banking fraud perpetuated by evil greedy criminals since 1913, and our treasonous government officials who have betrayed the people for a century. The love of money is the root of all evil. Socialism is not the answer, but it is absolutely essential for survival in a rigged and corrupt system like we have in the United States! 

Tens of millions of Americans have literally died for lack of health insurance, while millions of CEO's are multi-millionaires. The government wouldn't have to take from the rich to give to the poor, if the government didn't allow corporations to move tens of millions of jobs overseas. Big government is the problem! President Ronald Reagan was 100% right about that, even though he himself was a bad president, signing off on millions of jobs leaving the country. As U.S. President, Ronald Reagan said one thing, but he did another!

Please don't ever say that people who don't work shouldn't eat, when tens of millions of Americans cannot find a decent job; because our government betrayed us, letting tens of millions of jobs go to other countries. Please don't ever say that the government doesn't owe us anything, when they have allowed (since 1913) private banks to tamper with our economy, laying heavy burdens upon men's shoulders grievous to be borne. Do you think it is just a coincidence that you have to work for 30 to 40 years to pay down a mortgage? The banksters made it that way! They are financial scientists ladies and gentlemen! Don't be fooled! 

The Bible says that if a man doesn't work, he ought not eat. That is in a free society. But in a rigged system like America, where we have funny money that is not real, working men still end up homeless! Millions of Americans cannot survive on $7.25 an hour. Our government leaders have failed to protect the people! They have selfishly gone along with the banking and political fraud for so long, that no one dare try to change the system, lest they be targeted for persecution and extinction. President John F. Kennedy tried to make honest again the banking system, with executive order 111110, and they assassinated him in broad daylight—to let everyone else know that they can kill you at anytime, anywhere, for any reason!!!

Capitalism Has Murdered Tens Of Millions Of Americans

Liberty is God's way. There is nothing wrong with wanting to be profitable. The Robin Hood philosophy of robbing the rich to care for the poor is sinful. I do not believe that it is the government's job to house, cloth, feed or educate anyone. The origin and only purpose of government was to PROTECT our person, property and freedom. That's it! For example: The Food And Drug Administration (FDA) is a legitimate need, to protect people from con artists. Before 1906 when the FDA was created, wicked men used to sell motor oil to be used as cooking oil. The FDA stopped that!

But what is happening in America today, and has been happening for the past few decades, is that the people are succumbing to the failing U.S. dollar. The more money the Federal Reserve prints, the less it is worth, which drives the cost of everything upward (which is called inflation). Inflation is a tax! I said inflation is a tax!!! So all the central bank has to do to take away more of your hard-earned money, from taxation, is to have the U.S. treasury print more money! Now you can understand why the federal government is always borrowing trillions more dollars from the central banks. It is making those private banking families richer and richer, at the expense of the American people!!! That is why millions of people are homeless. The problem will only get much worse.

Capitalism has murdered tens of millions of Americans. While these tens of millions of Americans have died while waiting for surgery, which they never received because they couldn't afford to pay for health insurance, the rich have gotten richer. Capitalism is murder in a society that deliberately takes away tens of millions of jobs from Americans. Illegals are criminals. Criminals should be punished. Our government welcomes them, giving them our jobs instead. Our leaders need to be tried in a true court of justice and then hung! The U.S. Supreme court is illegitimate. They are corrupt. The U.S. Justice Department is corrupt.

Capitalism is like a gun. A gun is neither good nor evil. It is a tool, just like a hammer or a saw. A gun can provide food on the table, when used for hunting. But if I take away your gun, and give guns to criminals, what have I done to you? I have put you in harm's way. Likewise, when our government forcefully takes away our jobs (to send to foreign soil), then capitalism becomes as a deadly weapon in the hands of big corporations. The Globalist-run U.S. government has put us in harm's way. There is no real leadership in the United States anymore—only a bunch of incompetent fools who put in their hours, complain, fight with one another, and take months to accomplish what should only take days. It is a woeful shame! I am ashamed of my government. I am shamed to be called an America anymore.

Therefore, as long as there are illegals in our midst taking millions of U.S. jobs, and as long as millions of U.S. jobs are being outsourced to foreign lands, and as long as our U.S. dollar continues to erode in spending power because of the fraudulent Federal Reserve—I am all for the government proving housing, education, healthcare, and whatever else the hell the American people need to survive. I love and care about people. People cannot work if there are no jobs. People cannot work three minimum wage jobs and still thrive. Women cannot enter into the workplace and raise their children (1st Timothy 5:14-15). Times are only tough because the Globalists have decided to make it tough. Capitalism is a murderous weapon in the hands of corporations, when tens of millions of high paying jobs have been stripped away from American citizens. The Federal Reserve must go, or Socialism must stay!!!

Having One's Name Removed From The Book Of Life

Revelation 3:5, "He that overcometh, the same shall be clothed in white raiment; and I will not blot out his name out of the book of life, but I will confess his name before my Father, and before his angels." 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." Exodus 32:32, "Yet now, if thou wilt forgive their sin--; and if not, blot me, I pray thee, out of thy book which thou hast written."​

Many people make the mistake of referring to "Revelations" (plural). Movie script writers often make this mistake. Alex Jones makes this mistake often. Kindly said, it is spelled "Revelation" (singular). Revelation 1:1, "The Revelation of Jesus Christ, which God gave unto him, to shew unto his servants things which must shortly come to pass; and he sent and signified it by his angel unto his servant John: Who bare record of the word of God, and of the testimony of Jesus Christ, and of all things that he saw." So Revelation is THE REVELATION OF JESUS CHRIST, given to the Apostle John, to testify to everyone else. Most people think the book of Revelation is a bunch of revelations about the future, but it is the REVELATION of our blessed Lord and Savior, as given to John, to give to us.

Since we know that salvation is a guaranteed free gift (Romans 5:15-18; 6:23)  to everyone who believes, and that salvation CANNOT be lost for any reason, we can only logically conclude that everyone's name is already written in the Book Of Life at birth. This explains why all children and babies go to Heaven. When a child reaches the age of accountability, knowingly rejecting Jesus Christ as one's personal Savior, then their name is removed from the Lamb's Book Of Life. It must work that way, for anyone's name to be REMOVED from the Lamb's Book Of Life. What is the Book Of Life? It is simply a book in Heaven that shows who is saved. That is, who has eternal life dwelling in them. You don't have eternal life unless you have Jesus in you! Colossians 3:4, “When Christ, who is our life, shall appear, then shall ye also appear with him in glory.” John 10:28, And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand.

​When a person knowingly corrupts the Word of God, ​it is effectively the same as wilfully rejecting Christ, since Jesus' name is: “THE WORD OF GOD (Revelation 19:13). Jesus is the Living Word; the Bible is the Written Word (John 1:1-3, 14). Dr. John R. Rice (1895-1980) called them "TWINS." To corrupt the Bible is to personally attack the Lord Jesus Christ. The unpardonable sin is blaspheming the Holy Spirit. Jesus said you can speak evil of Him and be forgiven, but not the Holy Spirit (Luke 12:10). That simply means that since the Holy Spirit does the saving, if we reject Him we cannot be saved. The letter killeth, but the spirit giveth life (2nd Corinthians 3:6). The Holy Spirit gives the new birth (Romans 8:9; 1st John 3:24). Being "born again" means that God's Holy Spirit now lives inside us permanently (1st Corinthians 3:16-17). Our spirit which was once dead in trespasses and sins, is now made alive by the presence of God's blessed indwelling Holy Spirit (Ephesians 2:1-2).

As we read earlier in Exodus 32:32, Moses loved his people so much, that he prayed for God to remove his name from the Book Of Life. Literally, Moses offered to go to Hell in place of his rebellious Hebrew brothers and sisters. Of course, our holy God would never allow such a thing to happen. God is faithful and just (1st John 1:9). We all choose to accept or reject Christ individually. We make our own decisions. We are all born as individuals, and we must will all die as individuals. No one has ever accidentally gone to Hell. No one has ever gone to Hell except they knowingly rejected the truth of the Gospel. Many people are deceived, but it is only because they chose not to love the truth, following tradition instead (Mark 7:6-13; Matthew 7:21-23; Luke 13:23-24). 

I believe that everyone's name is recorded in the Lamb's Book of Life, even before we were conceived. All babies and young children go to Heaven. When a child is old enough (which age varies) to understand sin and the need for the Savior, they become accountable to God. God is not a respecter of persons (Romans 2:11). So when someone tampers with the Holy Bible, God removes their name from His Word, because they have effectively denied Christ. I wouldn't argue that point, but that is my humble opinion. I do know for a certainty that God never removes someone's salvation. There is not one place in the Bible which teaches God's gift of eternal life can be forfeited, not for any reason.

There is debate whether the warning in Revelation 22:19 applies only to Revelation, or to the entire Bible. This particular warning seems to refer only to Revelation. However, I would think that God feels the same about the whole Bible. 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.” Jeremiah 23:36, “And the burden of the LORD shall ye mention no more: for every man's word shall be his burden; for ye have perverted the words of the living God, of the LORD of hosts our God.” It is not corrupting the Bible that causes a person to be lost; but rather, a person who attacks the Word of God is effectively rejecting Jesus Christ. I believe that is what Revelation 22:19 means. No one loves Jesus who hates the Bible. A person who can assault the Written Word of God, does not love the Living Word of God. I humbly think that is what Revelation 22:19 means.

Repentance From Dead Works, Not From Sin

Hebrews 6:1, “Therefore leaving the principles of the doctrine of Christ, let us go on unto perfection; not laying again the foundation of repentance from dead works, and of faith toward God,

There is a popular deadly teaching in many Baptist churches today, which says you must “turn away from your sin” to receive God's gift of eternal life. Whereas the Bible teaches that repentance and faith are simply two parts of one act of believing the Good News (Gospel) of Jesus Christ, the heresy of Lordship Salvation says that you must repent as a separate action from faith. Lordship Salvation says that you must turn away from your sinful behavior first, and then secondly believe. The latter is a much more complex plan of salvation than to simply “Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved” (Acts 16:31b).

I love Hebrews 6:1, because it plainly teaches us that repentance is from “DEAD WORKS,” and not from our sins. Dead works includes all works! They are called “dead works because they cannot save you. What saith the Scripture? ...

Romans 9:30-33, “What shall we say then? That the Gentiles, which followed not after righteousness, have attained to righteousness, even the righteousness which is of faith. But Israel, which followed after the law of righteousness, hath not attained to the law of righteousness. Wherefore? Because they sought it not by faith, but as it were by the works of the law. For they stumbled at that stumblingstone; As it is written, Behold, I lay in Sion a stumblingstone and rock of offence: and whosoever believeth on him shall not be ashamed.

I love this passage. Let my explain it. The Gentiles who couldn't care less about living right, obtained salvation by faith; but the Old Testament Jews, who tried to keep the law of Moses, went to Hell. Why? It is because the Jews lacked FAITH. Not being “ashamed” here does not mean to be embarrassed. It is a quote from Isaiah 28:16, “Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD, Behold, I lay in Zion for a foundation a stone, a tried stone, a precious corner stone, a sure foundation: he that believeth shall not make haste.” This beautiful Bible passage speaks of our wonderful Savior. Jesus Christ is the Foundation of Christianity, the Head of the Church (1st Corinthians 3:11; Ephesians 5:23). 

The Bible promises that whosoever believes on Christ will not be let down. You won't be disappointed. That is what “make haste” and “not be ashamed” mean in these passages. You can count on Jesus!!! The apostle Peter was ashamed of Jesus, denying Him three times. Peter cursed and said that He didn't know Jesus. Yet, Peter was securely saved. We also read in John 12:42-43 that many of the chief rulers were ashamed of Jesus, but they did not confess Him. They were ashamed, afraid of losing their jobs because of the unbelieving Pharisees. These Bible passages have nothing to do with being ashamed. God invites you to believe on His Son, assuring you that you won't be let down in eternity.

Romans 9:32b says the Jews “sought it not by faith, but as it were by the works of the law.” Now you can clearly see what is meant by repenting from “DEAD WORKS” in Hebrews 6:1. The reason God gave the Old Testament law was to show humanity our sins (Romans 3:19). But the Jews got stuck on keeping the law, trying to merit salvation by works (self-righteousness). Dear reader, no one has ever been saved by works (Romans 3:20). When a preacher says that you must “turn away from your sin” to be saved, what he is effectively saying is that you must do works to receive God's free gift of eternal life. 

The law of Moses was not just avoiding doing bad works; such as, committing adultery, murder, et cetera. Some commandments included doing good works; such as, honoring your mother and father, and loving God with all your mind, heart and soul. The law included all of the ceremonial laws, which involved sacrifices, rituals and festivals. So the law was comprised of both doing good works, and not doing bad works. They all fall under the umbrella of “dead works,” because salvation cannot be attained through keeping them.

“Look Mom, That Dog Has No Man!”

Proverbs 14:12, “There is a way which seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death.” Luke 13:23-24, “Then said one unto him, Lord, are there few that be saved? And he said unto them, Strive to enter in at the strait gate: for many, I say unto you, will seek to enter in, and shall not be able.”

Every parent remembers funny things that their kids said when they were young. As a young boy I remember often walking with my mother to the grocery store in Chicago. When I grew up she would sometimes reminds me of something funny I said one day. We were walking through the park one day and I saw a dog. I was about 6 or 7 years old and I said: “Look Mom, that dog has no man!” That is funny. You see, I was so used to seeing dogs on a leash with their owner, that when I saw a stray dog I thought it strange not to see a man. Children are very honest! My mother was born in 1935, and went to be with Jesus in 2001.

I thought about that funny thing today, that my mother remembered me saying as a small boy. Then I realized that I could use it for a spiritual application. So often humans get used to thinking a certain way, even if it is way wrong. There are several Scripture passages which address thinking wrong, and the consequences. Proverbs 14:12, “There is a way which seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death.” I have been watching some very interesting YouTube videos. One was from the popular '1,000 Ways To Die' television series. A woman who was aging wanted to restore her beauty. So she had read something interesting on the internet, about injecting corn oil into her face. She tried it. The corn oil caused massive blood clots, which travelled to her heart and killed her.

Dear friend, the same thing happens to religious people all the time. They read something interesting on the internet, or read an intriguing book, or hear something that sounds good from a preacher, so the end up being woefully deceived by the Devil. Luke 13:23-24, “Then said one unto him, Lord, are there few that be saved? And he said unto them, Strive to enter in at the strait gate: for many, I say unto you, will seek to enter in, and shall not be able.” The preceding Bible verses show us that wrong thinking can be eternally fatal. The folks in Luke 13:23-24 missed out on going to Heaven, but they thought they would go to Heaven. Can you imagine? How does that happen? I mean, how can somebody have the mindset that they are going to Heaven, but then die and actually be sent to Hell instead?

Let's read another applicable Scripture passage. Matthew 7:21-25, “Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven. Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity. Therefore whosoever heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them, I will liken him unto a wise man, which built his house upon a rock: And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell not: for it was founded upon a rock. 

Dear friend, have you built your hope for eternal life upon the sand? The heresy of Lordship Salvation is a house of cards! It will come toppling down in a second when the wind of death blows. Lordship Salvation is built upon the sand. Sand washes away when the tide comes in. A house built upon sand has no foundation at all. My hope is build on the Solid Rock of Jesus Christ! 1st Peter 2:7-8, “Unto you therefore which believe he is precious: but unto them which be disobedient, the stone which the builders disallowed, the same is made the head of the corner, And a stone of stumbling, and a rock of offence, even to them which stumble at the word, being disobedient: whereunto also they were appointed.” 

The Jews rejected Jesus, tossing Him aside like a useless stone. But the Bible says that seemingly insignificant stone became the very cornerstone on the foundation. What is a cornerstone? When building anything, the most important thing is getting started. If you start crooked, you'll finish crooked. You want a level house. You don't want things rolling across the floor because your home is on a slope! So the correct way to build is to start off with a level cornerstone, that is measured accurately and true. Then everything that follows with be accurate and true. Jesus is the foundation of Christianity. 1st Corinthians 3:11, “For other foundation can no man lay than that is laid, which is Jesus Christ.”

Look Mom, Bob Jones University Has No Gospel

I get very frustrated and sad when I think about what has spiritually happened to Bob Jones University over the past 50 years. BJU went from at one time being the citadel of Christian Fundamentalism in America, to being a cesspool of iniquity and theological heresy. Their founder, Dr. Bob Jones Sr. (1883-1968) preached an accurate Free Grace Gospel. Dr. Bob Jones Sr. fully understood that the gift of eternal only comes wrapped in the package of Jesus. If you don't want Jesus, then you cannot receive the gift. 

In sharp contrast, Dr. Steve Pettit (who has been the president of BJU since 2014) is preaching ANOTHER GOSPEL (2nd Corinthians 11:3-4) of partial faith in Christ plus works. Dr. Pettit insists in his preaching that you cannot merely get saved in an instant, and then that's it! He says MORE is required if you want to obtain the award of Heaven. Read for yourself Dr. Pettit's own heretical words, spoken on January 26, 2015 during chapel to 2,700 students and faculty at Bob Jones University...

“You can't just speak about getting saved, and you accepted Christ, and then that's it! There is a justification; There is a sanctification; There's ultimately a glorification, and though there are three parts, they are all part of the whole, and you cannot separate them. In order for you to qualify for the award, you have to get into the race, you have to stay in the race, and you have to finish the race. If you want to win, you have to run to the end; and winning in the Christian life is everything, because if you lose—if you don't finish—you lose everything—you lose your SOUL. And so, the Christian race is the life of faith that begins, is run, and is finished when we cross over into Heaven!” [emphasis added] —Dr. Steve Pettit (“What Does It Mean To Run 'The Race'?” - 11:34)

Dr. Pettit heretically says that the “award” is “Heaven itself”... 

“We run the race, we cross the finish line, and so what’s the prize? What is the award? Well, there are different viewpoints. Some would have the viewpoint that the awards are crowns in Heaven. But as I read the book of Hebrews and see the whole gist of the book and the flow of the book, I don’t believe its referring to crowns in Heaven. I think it is referring to Heaven itself.” [emphasis added] —Dr. Steve Pettit (“What Does It Mean To Run 'The Race'?” - 22:57)

Just as I was thinking as a boy that every dog is supposed to have a man, so also does Bob Jones University today think that you must turn away from your sin to be saved. That is not the Gospel. Repentance is “a change of mind” (Greek: metanoia) toward the truth. 2nd Timothy 2:25-26,  “In meekness instructing those that oppose themselves; if God peradventure will give them repentance to the acknowledging of the truth; And that they may recover themselves out of the snare of the devil, who are taken captive by him at his will.” Do you see clearly dear reader, that repentance is not turning from one's sins; but rather, acknowledging THE TRUTH that you are a guilty sinner. Romans 3:19-20, “Now we know that what things soever the law saith, it saith to them who are under the law: that every mouth may be stopped, and all the world may become guilty before God. 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.

The Old Testament LAW was given by God as a measuring stick, to give humanity the knowledge that we are all guilty sinners in need of redemption. The law brings us to CHRIST to be saved by God's grace (Galatians 3:24-26). Repentance is agreeing with God that we are guilty sinners in need of the blessed Savior. Acts 20:21, “Testifying both to the Jews, and also to the Greeks, repentance toward God, and faith toward our Lord Jesus Christ.Repentance is not from sin, it is toward God. 

But don't you have to turn from something in order to turn to something? Yes, you are turning from your dead works. Hebrews 6:1, “Therefore leaving the principles of the doctrine of Christ, let us go on unto perfection; not laying again the foundation of repentance from dead works, and of faith toward God... Carefully notice that the Bible doesn't say to turn from your sins, it sins dead worksHebrews 4:10-11, “For he that is entered into his rest, he also hath ceased from his own works, as God did from his. Let us labour therefore to enter into that rest, lest any man fall after the same example of unbelief.Dead works includes good works as well as bad works. 

Turning from one's sins would be considered a good work. Romans 3:20, “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.Could the Bible be any plainer? I think not. We get saved by placing our confidence (faith) in Jesus Christ, which automatically includes repenting (ceasing from our dead works). This is such a wonderful, amazing and important truth dear friends! God took great care, as did the 54 King James translators handling His inspired Words in 1611, to put “DEAD WORKS” in Hebrews 6:1. Dead works includes all works (good and bad alike), because as Romans 3:20 teaches—no man can be justified by works in God's sight.

Look Mom, Harvest Baptist Church On Guam Has No Bible

Now I am going to shock and disgust you theologically. Here is a comparison between the infallible King James Bible, and the corrupt Easy-To-Read Version (ERV) that the Harvest Baptist Church on Guam uses. ...

KING JAMES BIBLE (KJB) — Hebrews 6:1, “Therefore leaving the principles of the doctrine of Christ, let us go on unto perfection; not laying again the foundation of repentance from dead works, and of faith toward God.” [emphasis added]

EASY-TO-READ VERSION (ERV) — “So we should be finished with the beginning lessons about Christ. We should not have to keep going back to where we started. We began our new life by turning away from the evil we did in the past and by believing in God.” [emphasis added]
As you can see, there is a night and day difference between the ERV and the King James Bible. Things that are different are not the same! The translators of the modern Bible revisions have blood on their hands! Jeremiah 23:36b, “for ye have perverted the words of the living God, of the LORD of hosts our God.” By using, selling and sanctioning the Devil's modern Bible revisions, and by adopting the Devil's false plan of Lordship Salvation, Bob Jones University and the Harvest Baptist Church on Guam are pulling on the same rope as the Devil. 2nd John 1:11, “For he that biddeth him God speed is partaker of his evil deeds.” I agree with God's Word, so my preaching will be justified in eternity (Romans 3:4).

Kindly said, the Bob Jones crowd have blood on their hands and will be held accountable by God for corrupting the truth, which is a very serious offense (Proverbs 30:5-6). By corrupting the Word of God in Genesis 3:1 (cf. Genesis 2:16-17), the serpent was able to deceive Eve into sinning, which brought horrific consequences upon her and her family. Up until that time, Eve had never felt physical or emotional pain, but her life became full of pain for the rest of her life because of her one sin. Oh how sin thrills and then it kills! Sin fascinates and then it assassinates! The Devil is a beautiful liar.

Look Mom, I'm Trusting In Jesus With No Works

Hebrews 4:10-11 uses the 6 days of creation in Genesis, as an illustration to help us understand repentance unto salvation. God worked during those 6 days. God's works were not sinful. God did not turn from His sins to rest on the 7th day. I sure hope you are getting this truth friend, because this is GOOD STUFF!

God ceased from His works. Did God have to turn from His sins? No, God is incapable of sinning (James 1:13). God ceased from His efforts. He ceased from doing anything. God rested. Dear friend, that is the best illustration of salvation you'll ever receive, and it came directly from God Himself in Hebrews 4:10-11. Just as God ceased from his efforts, that is exactly how to get saved. You simply cease from doing anything, and you rest completely in the Lord Jesus Christ. 

That is why the Apostle Paul could simply say in 1st Corinthians 2:2, “For I determined not to know any thing among you, save Jesus Christ, and him crucified.”  That is why Paul could simply say in Galatians 3:2, “This only would I learn of you, Received ye the Spirit by the works of the law, or by the hearing of faith?Paul didn't ask them if they had repented and turned away from their sins, nor if they had made a commitment to Christ as Lord, nor if they were willing to follow Jesus no matter what the cost. Pastor John MacArthur heretically requires all of these latter items I mentioned.

My dear non-feathered friend, I care about you. I don't get paid to labor night and day online preaching the truth. My reward is laid up in Heaven (Matthew 6:19-20). You are my greatest reward, those of you who are my spiritual children, whom I've had the privilege of leading to Christ with the Gospel. I've been having the time of my life since 2002, for almost 20 years, contending for the Christian faith. It brings me joy to preach THE TRUTH. One of the great joys of the Christian life is contending for the faith (Jude 1:3). 

So please make sure you use only the infallible King James Bible. And, please make sure you are trusting Jesus alone for your salvation, and not adding “turning from your sin” also, which is a work that cancels faith. It is all so simple. God authored only ONE BOOK! There is only ONE SAVIOR. Jesus is the Word of God (John 1:1-3, 14; Revelation 19:13). Jesus is the Living Word; the Bible is the Written Word. Dr. John R. Rice (1895-1980) called them “twins.” Jesus is the Word of God incarnate (made flesh). Why do you think the Devil has published hundreds of English Bible versions? It is to obscure Jesus, by confusing everyone, diminishing the importance of right doctrine, and quenching people's faith in an infallible Bible. To attack the Word of God is to attack the only begotten Son of God.

The Answer Is In The Churches, Not The White House

2nd Chronicles 7:14-15, “If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land. Now mine eyes shall be open, and mine ears attent unto the prayer that is made in this place.

The answer is in soulwinning churches, not politics. No society can rise spiritually above the condition of its churches. God always honors repentance—whether it be a nation, a community, a church, a family or an individual. God is always looking for someone who wants to obey Him. Ezekiel 22:30, “And I sought for a man among them, that should make up the hedge, and stand in the gap before me for the land, that I should not destroy it: but I found none.” What a sad commentary concerning the spiritual state of Israel. The Lord couldn't even find one man who would come before Him in prayer for the land. Job 16:21, “O that one might plead for a man with God, as a man pleadeth for his neighbour!”

Having said that, if there is any hope for America, it won't be found in the White House. The present situation with President Donald Trump is a perfect example. If there had been enough God-fearing Christians in the United States, he would have won the election by a landslide. But we've got a bunch of liberal sick-minded Americans who love mediocrity. They embrace their enslavement! What really bothers me is how the mainstream newsmedia continually criticized, scrutinized and badgered President Trump for the year prior to the 2020 election, clearly swaying public opinion against him. That should be illegal. The media is a psyops weapon, and by law should be required to remain neutral, just as are 501c3 licensed churches. 

Churches are not legally allowed to endorse a particular candidate, but the media can, which is wrong. Over 92% of web searches are filtered through Google, and by law they can censor any information they want. Google owns YouTube, so the law is the same, granting them power to censor any data they want. Sadly, they are censoring godly Bible preachers, but promoting ungodly transsexuals perverts. Truly Satan is the god of this world (2nd Corinthians 4:4). Google's power is very dangerous to freedom of speech and national security! By hi-jacking social media, the Globalists have monopolized the power to shape public opinion.

Our nation has been dying spiritually and economically for a very long time. To the same degree that Americans have faith in the God of the Bible, and live accordingly, starting with believing the Gospel, we have and enjoy liberty and freedom. Proverbs 14:34, “Righteousness exalteth a nation: but sin is a reproach to any people.The thieving central banks (aka, Federal Reserve) are a bigger threat to American than an invading army. Thomas Jefferson said that, and he was absolutely right. ...

“I believe that banking institutions are more dangerous to our liberties than standing armies,"  Jefferson wrote. " If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of their currency, first by inflation, then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up around(these banks) will deprive the people of all property until their children wake up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered.” —Forbes

Since 1913 the Federal Reserve has been ripping off Americans through fraud. Since 1971 the U.S. dollar has lost 82% of its spending value, after President Nixon took our currency off the Gold Standard. Since about 1980, inflation has continued to rise, while real wages have stayed the same. This has caused a massive homelessness problem in the United States. That is why the middle-class are struggling, and women have been forced into the workplace, and families are struggling and suffering. 

I watched a shocking video today, which just weeks ago filmed the massive homeless problem plaguing California. I quickly noticed the sign hanging on the post which reads: “JESUS, THE WAY, THE TRUTH, THE LIFE.” I love that! It just goes to show again, that the Bible is true, which tells us that God has chosen the poor rich in faith. ...

James 2:5, “Hearken, my beloved brethren, Hath not God chosen the poor of this world rich in faith, and heirs of the kingdom which he hath promised to them that love him?

How many preachers have you ever heard expose the central banks? I only know of Pastor Chuck Baldwin in Montana. I also heard Pastor Ralph “Yankee Arnold make some mention about it. I'm sure there are many more pastors who preach against the central banks, but they are a rare animal and I haven't heard of them. A preacher has a duty to preach against all evil, whether it be the local abortion clinic, or the lawmakers in Washington DC who empower them! Thomas Jefferson was a wise man and warned people about the central bank.

The answer is not in the government. In my humble opinion, Mr. Trump lost because of the power of social media. We must keep in mind that the newsmedia is not honest nor fair, it is controlled by Globalists. They tell the American public (the TV viewer) what to think. It's just a job to the hundreds of thousands of people involved in the news industry. I think overall that President Trump has done a great job over the past 4 years. I have never trusted him, simply because Freemasons control our country. George Bush Sr. and Jr. were both criminals. A recent study done by the University Of Fairbanks Alaska concluded that fire did not cause World Trade Center building #7 to fall. 911 was an Inside Job! Only a na├»ve fool denies that. It's like the story of The Boy Who Cried Wolf. The little boy kept having fun by lying that the wolf was coming. So when the wolf really came, nobody believed him, and the wolf ate him!

Pastor Jack Hyles rightly said:

“Old-fashioned, Spirit-filled, Christ-honoring, sin-hating, soul-winning, Bible preaching! It is the hope of the church! It is the hope of the nation! It is the hope of the world!” —Pastor Jack Hyles (1926-2001)

America cannot be saved by anarchy. I am against the recent anarchy in Washington DC. That is not God's way. The Bible says that God Himself will heal the land. But the conditions have to be met. God's condition is that the people turn from their sins. This is not Lordship Salvation. Americans need to repent toward God, and that begins with believing the Gospel to be born-again. That is the first step to healing any nation, getting people saved. And then once saved, God's indwelling Holy Spirit will begin to work in that person's soul, as they nurture in the Word of God (1st Peter 2:2). God's method is soulwinning local New Testament churches. Christians have to go soulwinning if America has any hope at all. 

Local churches have the responsibility of preaching the Gospel, water baptizing them as a public profession, and then mentoring new converts. This is: The Great Commission (Matthew 28:19-20). For many churches today it should be called: The Great Omission. And those converts need to get into church. It is a fact that over 90% of people who attend church, did so because someone INVITED THEM. I doubt if Harvest Baptist Church on Guam has knocked on any doors in 45 year since they started in 1975! They have never knocked on any doors in my neighborhood, and I live less than five minutes from the church. It is shameful.

The answer is not in the White House. As much as President Trump has won my admiration while in office, he is not the answer. President Trump while in office has called for the global decriminalization of homosexuality. Nearly all Christians overlook this and wholeheartedly support Mr. Trump, simply because he appears to be the lesser of two evils. As believers we ought not support evil of any degree. Republicans and Democrats alike are corrupt in America! In his heyday, Alex Jones used to expose the left/right paradigm 10 years ago, but then he became a Republican supporter when Mr. Trump ran for office. I was disappointed in Alex. I agree with the Libertarian mindset. I honestly don't understand why most Christians are not Libertarians, accept that they are either woefully ignorant or afraid to break away from the Republican herd. We have liberty in Christ, not the mob rule of Democracy, nor the Corporate rule of Republicans. I believe in liberty for every law-abiding individual citizen.

The Gospel Truth Must Be Preached

The answer to America's woes is in Bible-believing, people-loving, God-fearing, fervent SOULWINNING, churches! The “us four and no more” cultic attitude of churches like Harvest Baptist Church on Guam is letting America go to Hell. I've been trying to return to Harvest since 2017, simply to sit and hear the preaching, but they have banned and ostracized me for telling the truth in 2014. As a true friend, I helped their pastors to see the truth of the Gospel, but they love their spiritual blindness. I helped them to see the truth about the Devil's modern Bible revisions, but they love falsehoods. The Devil's lie of Lordship Salvation is sending millions of lost sinners to Hell. I receive heartbreaking emails all the time from people, thanking me for pulling them out of the snare of the Devil's Lordship Salvation heresy. One man confided in me that he almost commit suicide because of Evangelist Ray Comfort's false teachings. Why aren't more Baptist preachers crying aloud against Lordship Damnation? Here is a great sermon by Pastor Ralph 'Yankee' Arnold on “Why Lordship Salvation Is Wrong.

Brother Lester Roloff (1914-1982) was so right when he said: “The great need of the hour is PREACHING PREACHERS!!! That is why YouTube has removed and banned Pastor Steven Anderson, because he steps on toes. They accuse him of inciting hate, but dear friend, Brother Anderson was preaching THE TRUTH of God's Word. The truth is only hate to those who hate THE TRUTH! Yet, YouTube is okay with this homosexual. What do you think God's opinion is of this? Psalms 97:10, “Ye that love the LORD, hate evil: he preserveth the souls of his saints; he delivereth them out of the hand of the wicked.” So it becomes a matter of what is evil. Who gets to decide? You? Me? YouTube? God? Yes, God.

Our Weapons Are Spiritual, Not Carnal

For my conservative readers who love President Donald Trump, it doesn't matter if Joe Biden or Donald Trump is in office, because Freemasons control our nationPsalms 47:8, “God reigneth over the heathen: God sitteth upon the throne of his holiness.” Daniel 2:21, “And he changeth the times and the seasons: he removeth kings, and setteth up kings: he giveth wisdom unto the wise, and knowledge to them that know understanding:God sets up leaders, and takes them down. Ultimately God is always in control. Ephesians 6:13-18 teaches that our seven weapons of warfare are spiritual in nature: prayer, truth, salvation, Gospel, Word of God, righteousness and faith. I didn't see Mr. Trump in the list. I didn't see the Republican party in the list. Sadly, over 99% of churchgoers today don't use those weapons. Most churchgoers aren't even saved, having been deceived by a false gospel of “turn away from your sins” to be saved. Politics is not the believer's weapon!

We must speak the truth. Social media is a powerful tool to preach the truth, which is why Satan is censoring so much truth today. We must pray for God to keep the door of social media open for believers to speak THE TRUTH. Colossians 4:3, “Withal praying also for us, that God would open unto us a door of utterance, to speak the mystery of Christ, for which I am also in bonds:As you can see, the average believer today does not LIVE BY FAITH. How often do you pray for God to preserve our freedom of speech? God is more powerful than the government (Ecclesiastes 5:8). Proverbs 21:1, “The king's heart is in the hand of the LORD, as the rivers of water: he turneth it whithersoever he will.” If you feel helpless dear friend, PRAY! Your God is able!!!

The weapon of salvation is simply knowing that you are saved. No believer will ever be effective serving God, until you have the perfect peace that you are 100% saved. 1st John 5:13 says you CAN KNOW that you are saved. If you are not sure you're saved, you simply need to learn who, what, where, why, how and when about getting saved. In other words, people worry because they are ignorant of how to be saved. If you are not sure you are saved, you need to settle that right now. I wrote a 42 chapter book called: 'SALVATION' to help people like you, from my own painful 7 year experience as a teenager, when I couldn't find the assurance of my salvation. The Heresy Of Having To “Pray” To Be Saved.

These are our weapons. Faith is a weapon. Our God is able. The answer is not in overthrowing bad government, but in obeying our good God. Another weapon is righteousness (how we choose to live). Proverbs 28:1, “The wicked flee when no man pursueth: but the righteous are bold as a lion.” Matthew 24:12, “And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold.” Iniquity (unpunished evil) abounds in the United States today. I was shocked after watching this documentary of a mother who clearly murdered her own child. The mother lied and laughed in police investigators faces. Yet a mother in Texas last year was sentenced by a judge to 99 years in prison for assaulting her 2 year old daughter. The child is expected to make a full recovery. The average murderer spends 16 years in prison in the United States. Just search Google to verify that. Our whole court system is whacky.

Politics Will Never Solve Our Nation's Problems

A nation's government, families, churches and everything else, will follow the general trend of a society's spiritual condition. There are still millions of good people in America! But increasingly we are seeing wickedness at every level of society, even in our churches. The churches simply cannot compete with the television. Church is boring to most people (AND IT IS!). Somebody needs to wake the preacher up! I used to have to pinch myself to stay awake at Harvest Baptist Church on Guam in 2014, because the preaching was so dead there! Neo-evangelicals can't preach their way out of a wet paper bag! They ramble without ever getting to the point, like the late Evangelist Ravi Zacharias. That is why I get to the point often at the beginning of an article. Brother Lester Roloff is right: “We need porcupine preachers—so people will GET THE POINT!

Dear friend, Satan runs this world! There is so much evil, crime and corruption at every level of society and government in America today. We've seen again and again how the government interferes and stops anything that builds godly families. Any preacher who takes a strong Biblical stand against homosexuality today is demonized in the media, and targeted by the government. He is banned from social media. His financial accounts are frozen at PayPal, Go Fund Me, et cetera. But LGBTQ groups have free reign. When Black Lives Matter surfaced in 2020, some of America's largest corporations donated billions of dollars to their sinister cause, which in their manifesto is to undermine the tradition family and disrupt society.

Nothing except God's judgment can save America now! Americans lost control of their country in 1913 when congress let the criminal central bank take over our money. There has been nothing but havoc ever since! They are hollowing out the economy, and ultimate our money will be totally worthless. To compensate for the devaluing power of the U.S. dollar, the Globalists have been allowing U.S. corporations to exploit illegal immigrants and outsource jobs to foreign countries for as long as they can, but now the fraud cannot be hidden anymore. More and more Americans are being forced into homelessness. 

You see friend, the answer to all this goes much deeper than merely getting the right guy voted into office. As long as our entire economy is based upon criminal fraud, nothing will get any better! And now they are working on a cashless society, which will be just as corrupt and thieving. America is caught in the grip of a Luciferian cult! The average believer is so woefully ignorant of this topic, that they can only respond with either absurd laughter, or to shake their head in bewilderment. But don't despair my fine non-feathered friends, all is well in our heavenly Father's house (John 16:33). IF you are a born-again believer, by faith alone in Jesus Christ, then you have nothing to fear, because we are already on THE WINNING SIDE in Christ. Romans 8:37, “Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us.

Remember, our armor is spiritual in nature: prayer, truth, salvation, Gospel, Word of God, righteousness and faith. The weapon of the “Gospel” is soulwinning. Churches all across America, for the first time in my lifetime, felt like they had a champion on their side in the White House in Mr. Trump. I admit that I felt that way myself. It was refreshing to see Mr. Trump actually doing something to fight the abortion crowd. I really hate to see President Trump go. It is sad to see a bunch of liberal sinners excited that Joe Biden is coming to power. Job 20:5, “That the triumphing of the wicked is short, and the joy of the hypocrite but for a moment?

Have Faith In God

I wrote this blog article primarily to lead the reader away from expecting changes to come from Washington DC. If our federal government has proven anything, it is that they are incompetent to lead a nation. As Christians, if you are one hopefully, we are instead “Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith” (Hebrews 12:2a). Respectfully, my faith is not in Donald Trump or Joe Biden, it is in God. Mark 11:22, “And Jesus answering saith unto them, Have faith in God.” 

Jesus never got involved in politics. I have known some believers to physically get angry, when they learned that I was not a registered voter. Well, why should I waste my time voting, when they are wasting my time with useless candidates? One humiliation deserves another. I'll vote when there is a candidate worth voting for. But even if I don't, God honors that. There is no place in the Scriptures where believers are taught to vote. It is completely our prerogative. I am tired of being given Skull & Bones members to choose between, like when George Bush Jr. and John Kerry ran against each other for the office of U.S. President in 2004. No thanks, you can vote for Luciferian occults if you want.

My best advice to all Christians is to find and get involved in a local Bible-believing church in your area. I prefer independent fundamental Baptist churches myself. If you attend a Neo-evangelical church, including Southern Baptist Convention churches, you'll find dozens of Bible versions. You'll find the Devil's lie of Lordship Salvation. The best way to make a difference for God is by living for God yourself. “But as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord (Joshua 24:15). Help a local soulwinning church. However, I wouldn't support any church that is not laboring in the local community to win souls to Christ. Find a better church!

It seems like the churches in America are losing the battle against wickedness and Satan, but it just “SEEMS that way. We know from God's Word that the world has always been a wicked place. 1st John 5:19, And we know that we are of God, and the whole world lieth in wickedness.So even in wickedness, our God is still on His throne. Ecclesiastes 5:8, “If thou seest the oppression of the poor, and violent perverting of judgment and justice in a province, marvel not at the matter: for he that is higher than the highest regardeth; and there be higher than they.” I love that Bible verse. It means that despite all the injustice, unpunished crime, corruption and blatant wickedness in our governments and world today; God is higher than they are, and He is recording everything, so that one day all men will be held accountable (Ecclesiastes 12:13-14).

I could write so much dear friend. I just want to be a blessing, by teaching others the truth of God's Word. I'll leave you with one last thought. We are commanded in Philippians 4:8-9 to think on things that are of good report, lovely, pure, honest and just. That mean by very nature that we need to somewhat live in isolation from the world. How can we do this? By simply spending more time getting involved with a local Bible-believing, soulwinning, Christ-honoring, people-loving, church.

Please don't sit around watching the bad news on TV all day. I can hear the daily news in 5 minutes. If you do, you're going to get down and depressed. I stay on topside in my mind each day. I live above the clouds (Colossians 3:1-3). I have been battling depression for many years, due to neck pain and loneliness without a wife, but I always feel uplifted after I listen to Alexander Scourby read the King James Bible, or I hear one of my favorite preachers (like Pastor Bob Gray Sr., Dr. Jack Hyles or Pastor Ralph 'Yankee' Arnold) preach the Word of God. 

I love helping people. Gladly, I spend hours on many days just answering emails. 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.” For those of you who have emailed me, you know I am detailed and write very lengthy letters at times. I am just a fool for Christ. I don't claim to be a good Christian (I want to be), but I do know and walk with God my Savior. I humbly work hard day and night online to help people for Christ. I am feeding His sheep. I am very friendly if you want to write. Thank you very much for reading my blog. I love you with God's unconditional love. We're all just a bunch of sinners in this thing of life together. Jesus is precious!!!
