God Needs Human Weakness

“...THAT NO FLESH SHOULD GLORY IN HIS PRESENCE.” —1st Corinthians 1:29b

I am not an eloquent writer, I admit. In fact, I am a disorganized bumbling guy! It is no surprise that my ministry websites are very disorganized. I've prayed for years for God to help me do better, and I'm always working at ways to better organize my writings. I am doing my best for the Lord—despite my constant chronic neck pain, life's frustrations and weaknesses. I often feel like I am letting the Lord down, each day, in so many ways. I feel like a failure at times, like a Loser with a capital “L.” I get sad from my loneliness, and battle depression continually. 

It is hard to be spiritual when you are in pain! BUT THEN, I am reminded by the indwelling Holy Spirit that God uses WEAKNESS! I am always encouraged when I think about that. God doesn't need a man with organizational skills, or a brilliant writer, or a dynamic personality—He needs a willing servant with a BIG MOUTH (or big fingers on a computer keyboard...lol). God has too many strong Christians whom He cannot use, because then they would get the glory instead of the Lord. The U.S. military's motto is: “THE MARINES ARE LOOKING FOR A FEW GOOD MEN”; but God is also recruiting...LOOKING FOR A FEW WEAK MEN!!! ...
2nd Corinthians 12:9, “And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me.”

2nd Corinthians 13:4, “For though he was crucified through weakness, yet he liveth by the power of God. For we also are weak in him, but we shall live with him by the power of God toward you.”

1st Corinthians 1:23-29, “But we preach Christ crucified, unto the Jews a stumblingblock, and unto the Greeks foolishness; But unto them which are called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ the power of God, and the wisdom of God. Because the foolishness of God is wiser than men; and the weakness of God is stronger than men. For ye see your calling, brethren, how that not many wise men after the flesh, not many mighty, not many noble, are called: But God hath chosen the foolish things of the world to confound the wise; and God hath chosen the weak things of the world to confound the things which are mighty; And base things of the world, and things which are despised, hath God chosen, yea, and things which are not, to bring to nought things that are: That no flesh should glory in his presence.”
The heathen world has it all wrong! Even most Christians have it all backwards and wrong! When I at times start to feel pity for myself, having self-defeating thoughts—such as, “Why would God want somebody like me?” and “Why would God use a disorganized and offensive ministry like mine?”—I am reminded by the indwelling Holy Spirit that God accepts me just as I am, as a needy redeemed sinner, and He needs my weaknesses, not my strengths, so THAT NO FLESH SHOULD GLORY IN HIS PRESENCE!
“...THAT NO FLESH SHOULD GLORY IN HIS PRESENCE.” —1st Corinthians 1:29b
Humbly, you won't find a more sincere man on the internet than myself, who loves God and truth! I am a sinner, no debate there! But praise God, I am a redeemed sinner, whose ONLY claim to righteousness is the imputed righteousness of God through faith in Christ Jesus, my God and Savior! 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.” I am glad that I make such a big fuss over the Lordship Salvation mess, which is nothing less than a bridge to the works-based religion of Cain! Salvation is not based about what YOU DO, it is based upon what JESUS DID!

I am without a doubt a PORCUPINE PREACHER—PEOPLE GET THE POINT! And that is what truly matters—not how organized my websites are, not how good of a writer I am, not how talented I am, not how much worldly wisdom I possess, not how many web visitors I have, not how popular I am, not who knows my name, not anything except—PREACHING THE TRUTH! To God be the glory, for using a misfit like me, a stick in the mud, who has a humble servant's heart! I CARE! That is why I preach the way I do, without apology, with fervor, uncompromisingly, telling it like it is! My critics comb through my website articles diligently, looking for any doctrinal errors to critique me. GOOD, that is what you should do (1st John 4:1)! I want to be as truthful and accurate as possible, because as Dr. David Gibbs Jr.'s mother says, “I WANT TO MAKE JESUS LOOK GOOD!”

God's best saints always had HUMBLE HEARTS before God:
Luke 5:8, “When Simon Peter saw it, he fell down at Jesus' knees, saying, Depart from me; for I am a sinful man, O Lord.”

Isaiah 6:5, “Then said I, Woe is me! for I am undone; because I am a man of unclean lips, and I dwell in the midst of a people of unclean lips: for mine eyes have seen the King, the LORD of hosts.”

1st Timothy 1:15, “This is a faithful saying, and worthy of all acceptation, that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners; of whom I am chief.”

Genesis 32:10, “I am not worthy of the least of all the mercies, and of all the truth, which thou hast shewed unto thy servant; for with my staff I passed over this Jordan; and now I am become two bands.”
All of the preceding four men of God shared a common denominator—A KEEN AWARENESS OF THEIR WEAKNESS AND GOD'S STRENGTH!!! O how I want to be weak enough for God to use. I WANT TO MAKE JESUS LOOK GOOD!

John the Baptist understood this important truth—John 3:30, “He must increase, but I must decrease.”

Peter, James and John learned this important truth, when Jesus took them up into a mountain, and they saw Christ in His transfigured glorified body. Moses and Elijah also appeared. When the apostles began to honor Elijah and Moses as being equal with Jesus, God the Father overshadowed Moses and Elijah with a cloud, removing them from view, leaving ONLY JESUS to be heard! Matthew 17:1-5, “And after six days Jesus taketh Peter, James, and John his brother, and bringeth them up into an high mountain apart, And was transfigured before them: and his face did shine as the sun, and his raiment was white as the light. And, behold, there appeared unto them Moses and Elias talking with him. Then answered Peter, and said unto Jesus, Lord, it is good for us to be here: if thou wilt, let us make here three tabernacles; one for thee, and one for Moses, and one for Elias. While he yet spake, behold, a bright cloud overshadowed them: and behold a voice out of the cloud, which said, This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased; hear ye him.”

Likewise, if we want to be used effectively by God in a ministry, then our purpose must always be to—MAKE JESUS LOOK GOOD! You cannot do that with a counterfeit Bible version! You cannot do that with a false Gospel; such as, Calvinism (aka, Lordship Salvation). You cannot do that by preaching a false repentance of human reformation (versus the “fruit” produced by the indwelling blessed Holy Spirit in a believer's life)! You cannot MAKE JESUS LOOK GOOD by rubbing shoulders with hellbound Roman Catholics in the Satanic ecumenical movement, which is corrupting tens of thousands of churches! I WANT TO MAKE JESUS LOOK GOOD!!!

Good evidence that a believer walks closely with God is that they “in lowliness of mind let each esteem other better than themselves” (Philippians 2:3b). A humble Christian is a meek Christian! God is limited only by our pride! James 4:6, “But he giveth more grace. Wherefore he saith, God resisteth the proud, but giveth grace unto the humble.” It was Pastor Dwight L. Moody (1837-1899) who rightly said, “The world has yet to see what God will do with a man fully consecrated to 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.” God searches for human weakness! One of God's jobs (if you'll pardon the expression) is to search out proud people and bring them low! Job 40:12, “Look on every one that is proud, and bring him low; and tread down the wicked in their place.” Isaiah 13:11, “And I will punish the world for their evil, and the wicked for their iniquity; and I will cause the arrogancy of the proud to cease, and will lay low the haughtiness of the terrible.” O how I want to be humble, and “Though he slay me, yet will I trust in him: but I will maintain mine own ways before him” (Job 13:15).

God needs our human weakness, frailty and shortcomings! The apostle Paul never would have been used by God to such a great extent, arguably Christendom's greatest missionary, if Paul (formerly Saul) hadn't been a murderer of Christians, who “wasted” the Church (Galatians 1:13). The apostle Peter never would have possessed the Holy Spirit's boldness, when he preached the Gospel on the Day of Pentecost and thousands of sinners were saved, had Peter not cursed and denied the Lord (quitting the ministry) after Jesus was crucified. It was Peter's utter failures that emboldened him to come back serving God with a vengeance, in Holy Spirit power! It may be the very sins, failures and bad decisions that destroyed your life, that enable God to use you to do a meaningful work for God!

(a wonderful MP3 sermon by Pastor Jack Hyles)

(a precious MP3 sermon by Dr. Jack Hyles)

(a life-changing MP3 sermon by Pastor Jack Hyles)

Rahab in the Old Testament was a harlot, who became a Christian and is part of Christ's ancestral line. Some people misunderstand the Bible, thinking that Rahab was saved by works. James 2:25, “Likewise also was not Rahab the harlot justified by works, when she had received the messengers, and had sent them out another way?” Yet, we read elsewhere that Rahab was saved BY FAITH. Hebrews 11:31, “By faith the harlot Rahab perished not with them that believed not, when she had received the spies with peace.” Receiving the spies was the outward evidence of Rahab's inner heart's faith. She was saved solely BY FAITH, and that faith was revealed to others by her willingness to help the Hebrew spies. A Christian is known by their works, but they are saved solely by faith.
“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!”)

God Cannot Use Today's Apostate Bible Colleges

Dear reader, are you weak enough to be used of God? We see young people today going off to Bible college and religious seminary, preparing to do a work for God, but yet where are the mighty soulwinners? Where are the courageous preachers crying aloud against the sins of abortion, homosexuality and the ungodly Federal Reserve System (which has been stealing from the American people since 1913)? Where are the preaching preachers? As an example: Faith Baptist Bible College And Theological Seminary in Iowa is a dead corpse in Christendom! They charge students $30,000 a year!

Wow, for that kind of moolah the students should receive a steak dinner every day! It must be nice to get paid a 6-digit salary for “serving God” as an executive of such a lofty organization. I am sick and tired of Christianity being turned into a damned business in America! Where are the Billy Sunday preachers? I'll take an offensive Pastor Steven Anderson ANY DAY (who has been banned so far in 32 countries); than these deadbeat, shameful, wimpy, spineless, jellyfish, yellow-bellied, Caspar Milquetoast, religious leaders today who are reluctant to offend anybody by taking a stand for THE TRUTH!

And let's talk about the mess at Bob Jones University, who think they know more than God, promoting dozens of different English Bible perversions that cause nothing but confusion in the churches! I tell you, if you speak English and don't use only the King James Bible, you are a fool. Evangelist John R. Rice (1895-1980) was VERY WRONG for supporting Brooke Westcott and Fenton Hort, and their corrupt 1881 Greek Bible translation, but in fairness to Brother Rice, there was no internet at that time when he died in 1980.

So Brother Rice had LIMITED knowledge. However, today we have an exponential amount of information, because of the internet, and now we see THE TRUTH about reprobates Westcott and Hort. Sadly, Bob Jones University Is The Fountainhead Of Exalting Heretical Greek Of Westcott And Hort. For that reason alone (but there are others), Bob Jones University is on the Devil's team, and needs to be exposed, shamed and avoided for their apostasy! WAKE UP PASTORS, BECAUSE YOU ARE THE PROBLEM!!!

You are a FOOL if you send your young person to BJU. We don't need any more damned career nurses, we need godly wives and mothers! Today's disgraceful Bible colleges are greedy for more money, so they are now offering training for money-making “CAREERS” to lure worldly students. I wouldn't give you a dime for that kind of phony Christianity! The one time when Jesus blew up in anger (on purpose) was when wicked people turned God's work into a business!
“It's easier to fool people than to convince them that they have been fooled.” —Author Mark Twain
And while I am at it, I wouldn't send my dog (and I don't even have a dog) to Pensacola Christian College (a cesspool of apostasy, indifference, mediocrity, shallow interns, and King James Bible inspiration deniers). I know of a Baptist church on Guam, where the former PCC intern did such a poor job as their pastor, that the church refused to hire another PCC graduate. AMEN AND AMEN!!! I am sick of these stinking apostate Bible colleges! The BEST THING your church will ever do is to hire a man who has never attended Bible college or seminary, because then you know he hasn't been corrupted!

We're talking about being weak enough for God to use, right? Today's arrogant idiot pastors from BJU and PCC, who think they are some type of Big Kahuna (and a loser like me dare not ever question their pastoral “authority”), need to have their diapers changed, because they stink! They are TOO STRONG for God to use! They have lost their humility (if they ever had any at all). I agree 100% with something that Pastor Steven Anderson said:
“We need to understand that Elders are to be respected by default, but when they start teaching lies and wickedness and perversion and filth, at that point they've just lost respect right there. They've lost their right to be respected!” —Pastor Steven Anderson, a quote from the needful sermon, “The Baby Boomer Generation.”
The pastor is NOT the authority of the church, the inspired Word of God is! The church members have a responsibility to ensure that the pastor preaches the inspired Word of God, and when he doesn't, correct him or fire that loser! Being a pastor ought never be reduced to that of working a mere career; but rather, it is the highest office that a man can desire. And may I say, kindly, no man who doesn't preach THE TRUTH, ought to become a pastor!

I would rather have an ignorant pastor who calls the last book of the Bible “Revelations” (plural, it is supposed to be singular), and stutters through his preaching, than some PCC or BJU educated fool who doesn't believe that the King James Bible is inspired! Call me what you will, if I perish I perish! I am sick of Christianity being exploited as a money-making business in America! The greatest men of God have always been the ones who prioritized truth, not money! All of the Bible colleges no doubt will deny that charge, but by their actions they confirm that money is their God, offering money-making careers to students.

The sad fact is that when we examine the United States today, and see the rotting fruit produced by the Bible colleges and theological seminaries, only then do we fully realize that apostasy has set into them! I tell you, conformity is the enemy of THE TRUTH! When a young person goes off to some dead Bible college, he or she CONFORMS to become a product of their environment. That is what made Hyles-Anderson College different when I attended (even though the same deadly conformity existed there too, as it does everywhere), but Pastor Jack Hyles was a modern John the Baptist—telling it like it is, breaking the mold, being an individual. I cannot overemphasize enough the importance of being the individual that God created you to be!

One of the goals of the Devil is to remove a young person's individualism, instead compelling them to CONFORM to the group. So if America's Bible colleges go apostate, so do all their students! Dr. Brock Chisholm (1896-1971), the first head of the World Health Organization (WHO), laid the blame for war and human conflict squarely at the feet of parents and Sunday School teachers who—from the beginning—fed their children the “poisonous certainties” of the Bible:
“To achieve world government, it is necessary to remove from the minds of men their individualism, loyalty to family tradition, national patriotism, and religious dogmas.” —George Brock Chisholm, in a Speech given at the, Conference on Education, Asilomar, California, September 11, 1954
God DOESN'T need some hot shot graduate from a dead Bible college—who has conformed to the arrogance of the group—He needs a broken heart and a contrite spirit, someone who is meek and willing to tell THE TRUTH at all cost! John 8:45, “And because I tell you the truth, ye believe me not.” God cannot truly use a man until He breaks him, intentionally weakening him. Psalms 102:23, “He weakened my strength in the way; he shortened my days.” An elderly preacher, upon baptizing a young man who just got saved, said: “Lord take him, break him, and make him!” Contrary to the image that many Christians have of the apostle Paul being some Big Shot, the Holy Bible says Paul was weak. 

1st Corinthians 2:3, “And I was with you in weakness, and in fear, and in much trembling.” May I be weak enough for God to use. If suffering in constant bodily neck pain, and living a sad lonely life, and having suffered many afflictions along life's vale of tears—if that enables God to use my messed-up life as a vessel of honor for His glory, then so be it. 1st Corinthians 15:10, “But by the grace of God I am what I am: and his grace which was bestowed upon me was not in vain; but I laboured more abundantly than they all: yet not I, but the grace of God which was with me.” That is my testimony!
“And not only so, but we glory in tribulations also: knowing that tribulation worketh patience; And patience, experience; and experience, hope: And hope maketh not ashamed; because the love of God is shed abroad in our hearts by the Holy Ghost which is given unto us. For when we were yet without strength, in due time Christ died for the ungodly.” —Romans 5:3-6
“...THAT NO FLESH SHOULD GLORY IN HIS PRESENCE.”  —1st Corinthians 1:29b

Eve Was Made FROM HER HUSBAND'S SIDE To Be BY HIS SIDE

Genesis 2:18, And the LORD God said, It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him an help meet for him.

I heard a beautiful Mother's Day sermon today by Pastor Jack Hyles called: "FROM HIS SIDE." Please humbly hear this all you precious ladies, for the benefit of your marriage, home and happiness. The truths that Dr. Hyles teaches in this sermon are offensive to today's ungodly, heathen and rebellious American feminist. This one sermon could save millions of marriages and families, if you'll let it ladies. 

(the most important sermon any woman will ever hear, by Pastor Jack Hyles)

Here are some life-changing quotes from this needful precious sermon:
Ladies, concerning your husband: "God made you FROM HIS SIDE to be BY HIS SIDE." —Pastor Jack Hyles

"You cannot be a good Christian without being a good wife, and you cannot be a good mother without being a good Christian!" —Pastor Jack Hyles

"Child care is preparation for mate care. You will be to your aging husband what you are to your infant child." —Pastor Jack Hyles

"You cannot be successful in your SECONDARY responsibility without being successful in your PRIMARY responsibility." —Pastor Jack Hyles

"There's nothing in this world that will SAVE AMERICA like a revival of old-fashioned good wives. That means, also, good mothers." —Pastor Jack Hyles

"America's not gonna have revival, until we put WOMAN back in the place that WOMAN was meant to be!" —Pastor Jack Hyles

"The best thing a mother can do for her children is to love their Daddy! When the children have left your side, you'll be still at his side. Womanhood is the factory where good fathers are made. When you're a good wife, you're manufacturing a good father for your children. Being a good wife is the best preparation that you can give your daughter for marriage, for you become a model. You know, Rosie the Riveter didn't raise a good daughter who became a good wife!" —Pastor Jack Hyles

"The greatest gift that you can give your child is to give your child a woman that loves her husband, and a woman that loves their father." —Pastor Jack Hyles

The Way Churches Treat People Really Matters

Ephesians 4:29-32, “Let no corrupt communication proceed out of your mouth, but that which is good to the use of edifying, that it may minister grace unto the hearers. And grieve not the holy Spirit of God, whereby ye are sealed unto the day of redemption. Let all bitterness, and wrath, and anger, and clamour, and evil speaking, be put away from you, with all malice: And be ye kind one to another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God for Christ's sake hath forgiven you.

God knows that I am one of the friendliest people that you'll ever meet. I love people and am kind, generous and sweet toward everyone. When I visit a church for the first time, they always start with a grade of A+ in my book. I am not a troublemaker. I speak THE TRUTH.

But what has happened numerous times is that soon after attending a new church, I see some false doctrine. In the case of the shameful Harvest Baptist Church on Guam, I started attending there in November of 2013. I loved the people and felt like I was home. But over time I heard their pastor, Marty Herron, preaching the Devil's lie of Lordship Salvation. Pastor Herron taught his congregation that you cannot get saved unless you forsake a lifestyle of sinning. Literally, he is teaching people that they must keep God's law to be saved (Galatians 3:1-3). The law was given by God to show men that we are all guilty sinners, to give mankind THE KNOWLEDGE OF SIN (Romans 3:19-20). Kindly said, Mr. Herron is an unsaved infidel.

I also saw that Harvest's pastors were using, selling and promoting the Devil's corruptible seed (i.e., the modern corrupt Bible revisions). Marty Herron idolizes Dr. John MacArthur and was promoting his study materials, corrupting the people. They were also promoting Martin Luther (1483-1546) as a born-again Christian, but Luther taught the heresy of baptismal Regeneration all his life, meaning that he couldn't have been a born-again believer. Luther errantly taught that no one can go to Heaven without being water baptized and keeping the communion. That is not the free grace Gospel taught in the Scriptures (1st Corinthians 15:1-4).

God burdened my heart for the people at Harvest Baptist Church on Guam (HBCG). I spent several hundred dollars worth of books to give out to people to educate them concerning THE TRUTH. I spent $1,000 for Alexander Scourby DVD's of the King James Bible, giving them to the church office to distribute to anyone they wanted. I spared no expense in love to help those misled people. But the Devil controls harvest's incompetent pastors. They quickly demonized me, counting me as their enemy, just as they did the Apostle Paul in Galatia. Just like Paul, I became the enemy in their corrupt minds, because I TOLD THE TRUTH (Galatians 4:16). I was driven out of their bad church by those ungodly pastors. I did nothing wrong.

As time passed in 2017 I was lonely and pleaded to come back. Even though I knew the church was corrupt, I needed fellowship with a local church. I had nowhere else to go. But Pastor Herron held a grudge, refusing to allow me to return to the church I had attended for one year in 2014. I had promised to lay aside our differences and remove my criticism from the internet against HBCG. He cold-heartedly refused and we have been sworn enemies ever since. There is nothing anyone could do to undo the damage that Pastor Herron did. He must now give account to God for the tens of thousands of people whose blood in on his hands, for preaching another gospel of partial faith in Christ plus works (Galatians 1:6-9).

I had attended the Lighthouse Baptist Church on Guam in 2018. I went to their church with a spirit of love and an open mind and heart. Jesus said that a man out of the abundance of his heart speaks. I love God's Word and am passionate about defending it's inspiration and purity. So I gladly contended for the faith, sharing my extensive knowledge of what is wrong with these modern Bibles with friends that I had made in the church. But their wicked pastor, Sean Quinlan, was in bed with the wicked Calvinist pastors at Harvest Baptist Church on Guam, even calling them his “sister church.” What a wicked man Sean Quinlan is!!! So I rebuked Sean for his sinful compromise, and for berating me for faithfully contending for the faith.

And then I moved from Guam to Pensacola, Florida in July of 2021. Of all the churches in Pensacola, I chose to attend Campus Church at Pensacola Christian College. I thought perhaps I had found a new place to call home. But after a couple weeks one of my enemies, perhaps Sean Quinlan himself who in 2019 moved to PCC himself to work. Pastor Jeff Redlin (senior clown at Campus Church) rebuked me when he saw my website ministry, falsely accusing me of finding “weaknesses” in preachers. I know that greatly offended the Lord, because I am REBUKING THEM SHARPLY in the rotten Bob Jones University camp for preaching Calvinism (aka, Lordship Salvation and misunderstood repentance). Harvest Baptist Church on Guam is mostly BJU alumni, all corrupt to the rotten core doctrinally!!!

I was sickened that I had moved 9,000 miles from Guam to Pensacola, just to find that Pensacola Christian College is as corrupt as BJU, sinfully bidding them Godspeed. The Bible warns that PCC is just as guilty as BJU for bidding them Godspeed, making them partakers of their evil deeds. 2nd John 1:11, “For he that biddeth him God speed is partaker of his evil deeds. I didn't go looking for these fights, they all came to me. I didn't confront Harvest's pastors, they called me into the church office to rebuke me as an evildoers for TELLING THE TRUTH.

I didn't say anything negative or rebuke Sean Quinlan. I didn't start the feud, he did. As a low class pastor he scolded me in front of some church members. He said he had no choice, since I mentioned Bob Jones University in front of his members, that he felt compelled to put me in my place. Well, that backfired on that little man, because I rebuked him back in front of his own church members (most of which have since quit the church because of Sean Quinlan). Pastor Quinlan made a total fool out of himself. The man I was talking with (Brother Bill) his since quit Lighthouse Baptist Church, left his wife and moved to San Francisco, all because of Sean Quinlan's ungodly attitude. Bill saw what a little man Sean Quinlan is, another PCC calamity, and I know it turned him off to today's pathetic churches. I shouted SHAME ON YOU to Pastor Quinlan and then left with THE TRUTH, having rebuked a darn fool who couldn't stand to HEAR THE TRUTH that Bob Jones University is of the Devil today!!!

God knows that I didn't try to cause any trouble in either of these churches. I simply told THE TRUTH. Dear reader, the fastest way to get reviled, rebuked and removed from churches today is to simple TELL THE TRUTH. That is all I did, and all hell broke loose. I have written 322 articles exposing the rotten Harvest Baptist Church on Guam, to expose them. I am now writing several dozen articles, and there are many more to come, exposing the rotten hateful people at Pensacola Christian College. Pastor Redlin condemned me as a divorced man, treating me like a criminal and making me feel like garbage. He is a fool-headed man full of lame excuses. His favorite excuse is that his church is too big and he doesn't have time to treat people right. At the time (in July of 2021), that I told him that he made me feel like garbage, he was milking a PCC student's death for all he could. Jeff Redlin is a sad little man full of lame excuses for his lack of maturity and concern, who has no business running a hotdog stand, let alone pastoring a church of over 10,000 PCC students.

God knows that if any of the aforementioned pastors who have simply told me that God loves me, and made me feel welcomed instead of unwanted, and simply befriended me with God's love, and shown some respect for my ministry (or at least not criticize it), I never would have exposed any of them. I know that as sure as I am saved. THE TRUTH is that I didn't expose these corrupt men because I am a great defender of the Christian faith, but simply because they are horrible people who deserve to be exposed.

Jesus left the 99 sheep to go after the 1 lamb that was in trouble. That says so much about our dear Savior!!! It says first of all that Jesus cares about the INDIVIDUAL. One for all, and all for one. We're in this together! That is why Jesus said in Matthew 25:40, “And the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me. When Sean Quinlan shamefully berated me for being zealous over the Word of God, he berated Jesus! What saith the Scripture? Psalms 119:139-140, “My zeal hath consumed me, because mine enemies have forgotten thy words. Thy word is very pure: therefore thy servant loveth it.” David, the psalmist, was excited over God's inspired and very pure Words. David, as I do, would have loathed and despised these modern corrupt Bible revisions! And let me tell you, if you've seen one Westcott and Hort Bible, you've seen them all, because THEY'RE ALL CORRUPT!!!

Only the inspired King James Bible hasn't been tampered with by the Devil. All other Bible revisions are of the Devil, perverted and deadly. They may only differ in 3% of ancient content, but that 3% brutally assaults the deity of Jesus. Remember, deadly rat poison is 99% healthy cornmeal and only 1% poison!!! Beware of Satan's subtle ways!!! It is for exposing the Devil's corruptible seed (Genesis 3:15) that I have been abused, shunned, ostracized, blackballed, targeted, mistreated and slandered by pastors' Marty Herron, Joe Hansen, Jared Baldwin, Gary Walton, Sean Quinlan and Jeff Redlin (to name the main offenders). My only crime was TELLING THE TRUTH, for which these ungodly men in the BJU and PCC camps berated and belittled me. God will avenge me of their wickedness (Matthew 12:36; Romans 3:4; Galatians 6:7). I have TOLD THE TRUTH that Bob Jones University is pulling on the same rope as the Devil for preaching another gospel of Calvinism, for promoting false prophet John MacArthur, for promoting Satan's corruptible seed, and for mistreating me for TELLING THE TRUTH.

If these ungodly misfits had just been nice to me, showing me love instead of utter contempt in their stupidity as lazy, incompetent and blind pastors, I would have let sleeping dogs lay. But what saith the Scripture? Proverbs 29:27, “An unjust man is an abomination to the just: and he that is upright in the way is abomination to the wicked.I am a truth-teller, never having made a single penny for my labors for Christ. The aforementioned men are compromisers, cowards and salary-suckers!!! All of these men get paid ridiculous wages.

Marty Herron sadly gets paid well over $100,000 per year now in Iowa, destroying young people's lives at the Faith Baptist Bible College And Theological Cemetery. Herron would be in prison if I had my way, for his spiritual crimes against God and man. These neo-evangelical infidels are ruining the country!!! They cannot handle THE TRUTH. They all either promote the Devil's fake Bibles, or bury their heads in the sand, looking the other way instead of contending for the faith as I am faithfully doing (Jude 1:3).

I have many unpleasant interactions personally with these horrible religious men. All I did was TELL THE TRUTH, for which they counted me their enemy. Galatians 4:16-17, “Am I therefore become your enemy, because I tell you the truth? They zealously affect you, but not well; yea, they would exclude you, that ye might affect them. I am not an apostle, nor do I want to be. But I am a VOICE! Paul told Titus to REBUKE THEM SHARPLY who subvert families with another gospel. The corrupt Bob Jones crowd must be exposed!!!

If these immature men had simply befriended me instead of making me their enemy, I wouldn't be writing these articles. I do not expose them to be vengeful, but because I represent the individual. I am a human being! I matter. The day I was born I was validated in God's sight. If these wicked pastors will mistreat and throw me under the bus, then they'll do it to ANYBODY!!!I detest jerks! These men are ALL big jerks!!! That is exactly what they are, first class JERKS!!! And so I want people to know who these incompetent religious clowns are. They do not love people, they only selectively care about who they prefer. Proverbs 20:6, “Most men will proclaim every one his own goodness: but a faithful man who can find?” When these men had a chance to make peace with me, they were too arrogant, blinded by their foolishness and pride. I am the only one who is TELLING THE TRUTH!!!

Jeff Redlin refuses to take a stand against the ungodly BJU crowd. Neither will Sean Quinlan, who sinfully even calls the Calvinist Harvest Baptist Cult on Guam his “sister church.” You mean sister in spiritual whoredom!!! GET RIGHT WITH GOD ALL YOU INFIDELS!!!

The Spirit Of Promise

Ephesians 1:12-13, “That we should be to the praise of his glory, who first trusted in Christ. In whom ye also trusted, after that ye heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation: in whom also after that ye believed, ye were sealed with that holy Spirit of promise, Which is the earnest of our inheritance until the redemption of the purchased possession, unto the praise of his glory.”

Do you remember when God gave mankind the rainbow as a token of His promise never to destroy the earth again with water? God thought it was important to backup His promise with a token of His honesty.

Did you know one reason why God gives us the Holy Spirit is so that the Holy Spirit will be a “pledge” to us that we belong to Him? (Ephesians 1:13). The moment you receive Christ as your personal Savior (John 1:12), you belong to God. Jesus loves you so much that He wants you to know you belong to Him. God has placed a “down-payment” on each and every one of His children, and that “down-payment” is the Holy Spirit. Amen!

My friend, “YOU” are the purchased possession if you are a born-again child of God. The word “earnest” in Strong’s Concordance means: “money which in purchases is given as a pledge or down-payment that the full amount will subsequently be paid.” Hence, the Holy Spirit is God’s constant reminder within our soul that we have a great inheritance in Heaven awaiting us. The poorest believer in Heaven will be richer than the richest man who has ever lived upon this earth.

Notice from Ephesians 1:12-14 that we are “sealed” with the Holy Spirit of PROMISE!!! God is a promise-making God, and a promise-keeping God by the way. The Holy Spirit is God’s PROMISE to us that He will finish what He has started, that we are His property indeed, that we have an inheritance awaiting for us in Heaven, and that the Devil cannot touch us with a ten-foot pole unless God Almighty permits it. We are God’s property! Jesus has placed the down-payment of His Spirit within you (Romans 8:9). He is coming back to claim you as His rightful property when the time comes.

“What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own?” (1st Corinthians 6:19).

We belong to God! God has given us His Holy Spirit to prove it. This is God’s token of promise to us. God calls His Spirit, the “Spirit of Promise.” What a wonderful truth!!! God is a God of His Word—He says what He means and means what He says. This is why we should make a fuss over the Bible—Because God didn’t write hundreds of Books, He wrote just ONE! I believe the King James Bible to be that Book in English.

If God's Gift Of Salvation Could Be Lost, God Would Have To Undo Many Things

John 5:24, “Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that heareth my word, and believeth on him that sent me, hath everlasting life, and shall not come into condemnation; but is passed from death unto life.” 1st John 3:14, “We know that we have passed from death unto life, because we love the brethren. He that loveth not his brother abideth in death.”

The inspired Holy Bible is very clear that when a person gets saved, they have PASSED FROM DEATH UNTO LIFE. Getting saved is a bridge that cannot be crossed over twice, nor can we return to the former place of being unregenerated as before we received Christ. The new birth can be likened unto the physical birth in numerous ways:
  1. Once born, always born (John 3:4).
  2. Neither the physical or spiritual birth can be undone (John 6:47).
  3. Just as the first birth was beyond our control, so also is the new birth completely of God (John 1:12-13).
  4. No one has ever been born physically or spiritually twice. You can be born twice, but only once physically and once spiritually.
  5. Just as we had to be born of the flesh to be alive physically, so also must we be born of the Holy Spirit to be alive spiritually.
  6. A person can die physically, but cannot undo being born. Likewise, all humans are both spiritually dead, which is why we need to be born-again of God; but once born-again no one can ever be unborn spiritually. It is absolutely impossible!
If salvation could be lost or undone once spiritual rebirth has already occurred in a believer, God would then have to do numerous things the Bible never speaks of nor teaches! Surely the Holy Scripture would clearly illustrate these things, if God's gift of salvation could be forfeited.

Here are some of the things which God would have to undo, and would happen, if you and I could lose God's free gift of salvation (which is by faith alone in the Gospel):
  1. God would have to pass us back from life unto death. John 5:24, “Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that heareth my word, and believeth on him that sent me, hath everlasting life, and shall not come into condemnation; but is passed from death unto life.”
  2. God would have to take back His free gift of eternal life, making Him a liar. Ephesians 2:8-9, “For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast.”
  3. God would have to remove us spiritually from being seated with Christ in heavenly places. Ephesians 2:6, “And hath raised us up together, and made us sit together in heavenly places in Christ Jesus:”
  4. God would have to "un-join" us from Christ. Ephesians 4:16, “From whom the whole body fitly joined together and compacted by that which every joint supplieth, according to the effectual working in the measure of every part, maketh increase of the body unto the edifying of itself in love.”
  5. God would have to "un-wash" us from the blood of Jesus that already washed me (1st Corinthians 6:9-11; Revelation 1:5). 1st John 1:7, “But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin.”
  6. God would have to "un-seal" us from the Holy Spirit. Ephesians 1:13-14, “In whom ye also trusted, after that ye heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation: in whom also after that ye believed, ye were sealed with that holy Spirit of promise, Which is the earnest of our inheritance until the redemption of the purchased possession, unto the praise of his glory.”
  7. God would have to impute our sins back to us, which He has already imputed to Jesus Christ by faith. 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,”
  8. God would have to restore our sins, no longer removed as far as the east is from the west. Psalms 103:12, “As far as the east is from the west, so far hath he removed our transgressions from us.”
  9. God would have to remember our sins again, which He had previously forgotten. Isaiah 43:25, “I, even I, am he that blotteth out thy transgressions for mine own sake, and will not remember thy sins.”
  10. God would have to break His own covenant He made with His Son and therefore would make Him a liar. Ezekiel 16:8, “Now when I passed by thee, and looked upon thee, behold, thy time was the time of love; and I spread my skirt over thee, and covered thy nakedness:​​ yea, I sware unto thee, and entered into a covenant with thee, saith the Lord GOD, and thou becamest mine.”
  11. God would have to "un-adopt" us as His child. Romans 8:15, “For ye have not received the spirit of bondage again to fear; but ye have received the Spirit of adoption, whereby we cry, Abba, Father.”
  12. God would have to leave and forsake us, even though He promised to never do so. 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.”
  13. God would have to "pluck us" out from His own hand, which He has already promised that nothing could ever do! 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. My Father, which gave them me, is greater than all; and no man is able to pluck them out of my Father's hand.”
  14. God would have to take back the free gift of eternal life that He has already given to us by faith. Romans 6:23, “For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.”
  15. God would have to “undo” the righteousness that He has already imputed to you and me by faith. Romans 4:6, “Even as David also describeth the blessedness of the man, unto whom God imputeth righteousness without works,”
  16. God would have to fail to raise us up on the last day, going back on His solemn promise to do so. John 6:40, “ And this is the will of him that sent me, that every one which seeth the Son, and believeth on him, may have everlasting life: and I will raise him up at the last day.”
  17. God would have to fail in completing the “good work” in us, that He has already promised to perform. Philippians 1:6, “Being confident of this very thing, that he which hath begun a good work in you will perform it until the day of Jesus Christ:”
  18. God would have to ignore the prayers of His Son on our behalf, Who intercedes for us as believers. John 17:9, “I pray for them: I pray not for the world, but for them which thou hast given me; for they are thine.”
  19. The Holy Spirit would have to stop making intercession for us when we pray. 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.
  20. Jesus would have to stop being our heavenly High Priest. Hebrews 7:25, “Wherefore he is able also to save them to the uttermost that come unto God by him, seeing he ever liveth to make intercession for them.”
  21. It would mean that salvation is really a reward and not a free gift, since we must do something to keep it. 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.”
  22. It would mean that we are no longer married to Christ. 2nd Corinthians 11:2, “For I am jealous over you with godly jealousy: for I have espoused you to one husband, that I may present you as a chaste virgin to Christ.”
  23. It would mean that no believer can rejoice with 100% confidence that our name is written in Heaven, because we might lose it. Luke 10:20, “Notwithstanding in this rejoice not, that the spirits are subject unto you; but rather rejoice, because your names are written in heaven.”
  24. It would cause every believer to live in fear, worry and uncertainty, never knowing if we are truly saved. 1st John 5:13, “These things have I written unto you that believe on the name of the Son of God; that ye may know that ye have eternal life, and that ye may believe on the name of the Son of God.”
  25. The entire Bible would have to be written to retain God's integrity. The Gospel of John teaches us simply to BELIEVE to be saved. If salvation could be lost because of sin, unfaithfulness or any other reason, for the man that BELIEVES, then God lied. John 20:31, “But these are written, that ye might believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God; and that believing ye might have life through his name.” Titus 3:5, “Not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to his mercy he saved us, by the washing of regeneration, and renewing of the Holy Ghost; Which he shed on us abundantly through Jesus Christ our Saviour; That being justified by his grace, we should be made heirs according to the hope of eternal life.”

Bob Jones University's Sick ESV Bible Says Paul Wanted False Prophets To Castrate Themselves

Galatians 5:12, “I would they were even cut off which trouble you.”

In our text passage of Scripture, the Apostle Paul was simply telling the Galatian churches that he wished the false prophets who were corrupting them were gone, cut off, taken away! Paul wasn't telling them to go castrate themselves!

Here is what the English Standard Version (ESV) says in Galatians 5:12, “I wish those who unsettle you would emasculate themselves!” Nonsense! Do you see dear reader how stupid, corrupt and inaccurate the Devil's modern Bible revisions really are? Look at this doctrinal mess and prove of Satanic corruption in the modern versions...

All across the world today, especially in America, we've got a bunch of covetous pastors and Bible colleges who refuse to stand against error. Consequently, they don't stand for the truth either. I'm talking about the shameful mess at Pensacola Christian College (PCC) with their shallow testimony, lackadaisical pastors, spineless leaders and barren ministry. Making money is the name of the game at PCC, not caring about people. When I attended Campus Church for the summer of 2021, Pastor Jeff Redlin mistreated me like garbage, making me feel like an outcast for being divorced. Mr. Redlin is a cold-hearted arrogant fool full of pride. I left Campus Church because I realized quickly that I wasn't welcomed there. Redlin thinks he is God, selectively deciding who matters and who doesn't. They abused me just like Samantha Fields, a former PCC student who was attacked and ravished. When she told the PCC staff they berated her, telling her to repent. SHAME on PCC leadership including Jeff Redlin!!!

Today's Bible colleges are going to Hell. They don't stand against error. PCC is in bed spiritually fornicating with the accursed Bob Jones University (BJU) camp and their damnable Calvinism (aka, Lordship Salvation). PCC won't speak a word against BJU. Instead, their students play intercollegiate sports together. They send students to enroll in each other's colleges. They hire each other's graduates. But THE TRUTH doesn't matter to them.

And when an honest and faithful Bible preacher like me comes alone, who told THE TRUTH about BJU being of the Devil, incompetent Pastors' Sean Quinlan and Jeff Redlin got angry at me, scolding me for doing what they don't have the Christianity, faith or balls to do... REBUKE THEM SHARPLY in the corrupt Bob Jones camp:

Titus 1:10-14, “For there are many unruly and vain talkers and deceivers, specially they of the circumcision: Whose mouths must be stopped, who subvert whole houses, teaching things which they ought not, for filthy lucre's sake. One of themselves, even a prophet of their own, said, The Cretians are alway liars, evil beasts, slow bellies. This witness is true. Wherefore rebuke them sharply, that they may be sound in the faith; Not giving heed to Jewish fables, and commandments of men, that turn from the truth.

Well I am rebuking them sharply, as the Bible commands me to do, and I will faithfully continue to do so by God's grace, earnestly contending for the faith once delivered unto the saints (Jude 1:3). I will also continue to expose the rotten Pensacola Christian College (PCC) camp, who sinfully bid Godspeed to the ungodly infidel Bob Jones camp, making them partakers of their evil deeds (2nd John 1:11). Somebody's got to care! If someone doesn't speak with authority, the world will go to Hell. Dr. Jack Hyles rightly said that.

Bob Jones University today promotes the Devil's corruptible seed. They promote and sell at least five different Bible versions in their bookstore! They are pulling on the same rope as the Devil. PCC supports BJU's apostasy. Why won't PCC join the battle over the inspiration and purity of the Word of God? Why do guys like me have to do all the fighting? Why did Pastor Jeff Redlin shamefully berate and put my ministry down in July of 2021, upset at me because I am contending for the Christian faith that he falsely professes to defend. 

Kindly said, Pastor Jeff Redlin is an overpaid foolish religious conman who doesn't deserve the position of being a pastor. He needs to go back to Colorado where he came from, and take his impotent Laodicean lukewarm pseudo Christianity back to perdition where it came from. We've suffered enough in Christendom at the incompetent hands of these fools! I don't enjoy constantly harping against these bad pastors, but they need to be marked and avoided. Romans 16:17-18, “Now I beseech you, brethren, mark them which cause divisions and offences contrary to the doctrine which ye have learned; and avoid them. For they that are such serve not our Lord Jesus Christ, but their own belly; and by good words and fair speeches deceive the hearts of the simple.” Jeff Redlin does not walk straight! The PCC camp don't walk straight! They harbor false prophets, coddling and going along with the ungodly Bob Jones crowd. Lest you think I am splitting hairs, please read what Dr. Steve Pettit (president of BJU since 2014) preaches, which is NOT a free grace Gospel. 

Pastor Sean Quinlan doesn't walk straight. When I attended the Lighthouse Baptist Church on Guam in 2018, and Sean Quinlan was their shameful pastor, he berated me one Sunday evening. Pastor Quinan got angry at me for contending for the faith. I wasn't even speaking to him. I was speaking with Brother Bill, a friend I had made at church. I was teaching him that the story of the rich man and Lazarus in Luke 16:19-31 is a literal true story, and not a parable. I mentioned the Devil's modern corrupt Bible revisions that corrupt the Word of God. I mentioned that we all need to beware of Bob Jones University, who are the biggest promoter of the Devil's Westcott and Hort corrupt Greek.

Pastor Quinlan got angry at me for TELLING THE TRUTH!!! I rebuked him back and told him SHAME ON YOU!!! And I am so glad that I said that to him in front of his church members, and I'd do it again!!! We need to stop following fools like Jeff Redlin and Sean Quinan at Pensacola Christian College (PCC), who desire to build empty churches upon a foundation of sand instead of THE PILLAR AND GROUND OF THE TRUTH!!! The PCC camp run from every battle. The face of a coward is the back of someone's head as they run away from a battle!!! We've got a lot of friendly and nice people coming from the PCC camp, who stand for nothing, contend against nothing, and are good for nothing in the battle today!!! STAND DAMMIT!!!

PCC are sinfully A.W.O.L., sitting on the premises instead of standing on the promises!!! Jeff Redlin's showboat shallow type of superficial Christianity isn't going to save America!!! Brother, we need valiant preachers like Pastors' Steven Anderson, Bruce Mejia and Jonathan Shelley who STAND AGAINST ERROR AND WICKEDNESS!!! A mob of homosexuals literally bombed the First Works Baptist Church in California because of their pastor's godly preaching against the sin of sodomy. So what do we do as Bible preachers! We unconditionally love the homosexual community with God's love, but we keep preaching against their sin. Listen friend, we ought never accept the sin with the sinner, nor reject the sinner with the sin.

People need to be loved. We've got too many unbalanced hateful pastors today. And may I say, I am 100% against Pastor Anderson's preaching of hate against the homosexual community. That is wrong! It is never right to hate anyone for any reason! God is love and we are commanded to love everyone. Matthew 5:44, “But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you; But having said that, as wrong as he is at times, Pastor Steven Anderson comes 100% closer to being right, than all these wimpy preachers today like Jeff Redlin and Sean Quinlan in the Pensacola Christian College camp, who refuse to take a Biblical stand against false Bibles, the sin of homosexuality and other falsehoods and wickedness that are destroying our country.

I don't care if it harelips every dog in the county, by God's grace I will continue to earnestly contend for the faith (Jude 1:3). I will continue to REBUKE THEM SHARPLY who corrupt whole households with Devil's Bibles and Lordship Salvation in the wicked Bob Jones University (BJU) camp (Titus 1:10-14). Sadly, I have to compensate and make up for shameful incompetent preachers like Jeff Redlin who cares far more about his 6-digit undeserved salary (as the senior pastor of Campus Church at PCC), than he does about contending for the faith. There is NO GREATNESS in Pastor Jeff Redlin, for if there were he would have recognized the greatness of my 20 years of internet ministry. Instead, he had not one good thing to say, but critiqued my labours for Jesus Christ. SHAME on Jeff Redlin and PCC camp, just as they mistreated, abused, shunned and revictimized Samantha Fields

If you don't have a King James Bible, you don't have an inspired Holy Bible!!!

“The world will go to Hell unless somebody is authoritative!”
—Pastor Jack Hyles, “I Shall Not Be Moved

OPPORTUNITYISNOWHERE

Philippians 4:12-13, “I know both how to be abased, and I know how to abound: every where and in all things I am instructed both to be full and to be hungry, both to abound and to suffer need. I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.” Acts 16:25, And at midnight Paul and Silas prayed, and sang praises unto God: and the prisoners heard them. Acts 16:37, “But Paul said unto them, They have beaten us openly uncondemned, being Romans, and have cast us into prison; and now do they thrust us out privily? nay verily; but let them come themselves and fetch us out.

I was thinking this afternoon about something cool I saw many years ago...

OPPORTUNITYISNOWHERE

What do you see?

What do you see?

What do you see?

What do you see?

Most people read: “OPPORTUNITY IS NO WHERE,” but a few people optimistically see “OPPORTUNITY IS NOW HERE.” Interesting, huh? The only thing which makes the difference is how you and I perceive the letters that are grouped together. To be fair, one of the reasons why most people tend to see this phrase in a negative light is because the letters “N” & “O” form the word “NO,” which our brain recognizes before it can identify the word “NOW.” So it is a bit of a mind game.

However, the lesson learned from the preceding word game is profound. So oftentimes we as humans limit ourselves, and for that matter, we limit God. I once heard a life-changing sermon by Pastor Jack Hyles called: “God Is Just As Great As You Make Him.” In the sermon Dr. Hyles says: “Don't limit the Holy One of Israel.” Amen, that is so true! Whereas most people will always see things as negative, half-full and impossible; the Christian who is right with God realizes that “I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me” (Philippians 4:13). Jack Hyles' mother, Mattie Coystal Hyles (1887-1984), wisely taught him as a boy: “I can makes the man! Yes ma'am, that is absolutely true!

Our Global View (i.e., our overall attitude toward life) affects everything. Everything in life is a mindset. So many believers live defeated lives. They are always negative, discouraged, down in the mouth, critical and ineffective to serve God because of it. I admit that I have struggled with depression most of my adult life, but I have learned how to cope with it, hiding my life with Christ in God. ...

Colossians 3:1-3, “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. For ye are dead, and your life is hid with Christ in God.”

h

Psalms 57:1, “Be merciful unto me, O God, be merciful unto me: for my soul trusteth in thee: yea, in the shadow of thy wings will I make my refuge, until these calamities be overpast.

Psalms 91:1, “He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.

I like the following passage of Scripture, because it contrasts two sisters who had different attitudes, and we see how those attitude affected them...

Luke 10:39-42, “And she had a sister called Mary, which also sat at Jesus' feet, and heard his word. But Martha was cumbered about much serving, and came to him, and said, Lord, dost thou not care that my sister hath left me to serve alone? bid her therefore that she help me. And Jesus answered and said unto her, Martha, Martha, thou art careful and troubled about many things: But one thing is needful: and Mary hath chosen that good part, which shall not be taken away from her.

Mary was Martha's younger sister. This was the same precious Mary who washed Jesus' feet with her tears, and dried His feet with her hair. John 11:2, “(It was that Mary which anointed the Lord with ointment, and wiped his feet with her hair, whose brother Lazarus was sick.)” The Bible says that Mary sat at Jesus' feet to hear Him speak the Words of life. John 6:63, “It is the spirit that quickeneth; the flesh profiteth nothing: the words that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life.” There's your Bible inspiration right there! The Words which Jesus spoke are God's Words. That is what “inspired” means!

Please don't believe all these ignorant false teachers today who claim that only the original autographs of the Bible were inspired. If they are correct, that only the originals were inspired by God, then it means we don't have God's Words today. I'd throw my Bible into the garbage pail and never preach again if I thought that we don't have a perfect inspired Holy Bible today!!! Either we have God's Words or we don't! And if we do, then they are 100% verbally (every word) and plenary (the whole canon of Scripture, all 66 books) inspired.

King David said that he had zeal over and loved God's Word because it is VERY PURE, and he was upset that wicked men were trying to do away with God's Word. Psalms 119:139-140, “My zeal hath consumed me, because mine enemies have forgotten thy words. Thy word is very pure: therefore thy servant loveth it. My zeal comes from my burning passionate belief that I hold in my hand the perfectly preserved, incorruptible, pure, holy and inspired Word of God. I believe that BOOK in the English language since 1611 to be the inspired King James Bible.

The King James Bible contains zero mistakes, no errors and nothing that could have been translated better! The Bible needs re-reading, not re-writing! The Bible needs to correct us, not us the Bible!!! I will never be so arrogant and pompous as to sit in judgment upon the inspired Word of God. Do you understand dear friend that according to Psalms 138:2 God magnified His Holy Word above all His own holy name? 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. Yet ungodly ignorant men today don't even hesitate to change, corrupt and butcher the eternal Words of almighty God.

Mary had the right attitude, desiring to hear the Savior's life-giving Words. But Martha was a busy gal, preparing things in the kitchen, going about her business. Isn't this much like most people today, busily hurrying along life's merry way? Martha could have sat at Jesus' feet like her sister Mary, and also listened to Him speak the truth, but she didn't. It is interesting that it was Martha, and not Mary, who became flustered and frustrated. I think 95% of believers are just like Martha. They are good people who get caught up in the routine and chores of daily life, missing out on what the dear Savior has to say to them, just like Martha missed out. Mary heard everything Jesus said. Not surprisingly, it was Martha who Jesus called “troubled about many things,” and not Mary who sat listening to His voice. ...

Luke 10:39-42, “And she had a sister called Mary, which also sat at Jesus' feet, and heard his word. But Martha was cumbered about much serving, and came to him, and said, Lord, dost thou not care that my sister hath left me to serve alone? bid her therefore that she help me. And Jesus answered and said unto her, Martha, Martha, thou art careful and troubled about many things: But one thing is needful: and Mary hath chosen that good part, which shall not be taken away from her.

An important lesson that I take away from this helpful passage is that if we become boggled down with life's responsibilities like Martha, so that we fail to intentionally take the time to sit at the Master's feet each day to hear His Words of life, then we are our own worst enemy. Martha should have been listening to Jesus with the others. Martha wasn't troubled about many things as a result of choosing not to listen to Christ; but rather, she was too busy to listen to Christ because she was troubled about many things. If we are not careful, life will bring us to our knees and keep us there.

I love something uplifting that Rocky (Sylvester Stallone) said in Rocky Balboa (part five). I edited the quote a little bit, adding a Bible verse (just picture me saying this with a broken jaw, blood all over my face, and hollering 'Yo Adrian"...lol:

The world ain't all sunshine and rainbows. It's a very mean and nasty place and I don't care how tough you are, it will beat you to your knees and keep you there permanently if you let it. You, me, nor anybody else is going to hit as hard as life, but it ain't about how hard you hit; it's about how hard you can get hit and keep moving forward, how much you can take and keep moving forward. John 16:33, “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.”

We all have an opportunity today to serve God faithfully. Time is running out! God willing I will turn 55 years old on March 5th, 2022. I cannot believe how fast the years are passing. I still feel like I am 18 years old. It seems like just yesterday that I was a teenager. I am like a big kid and I like it that way. I love wearing my “John 3:16 hat backward (or maybe my head is backward). I like who I am. Unfortunately, I haven't been able to find a Christian woman of kindred spirit who wants to spend the rest of her life with me, having fun together.

These are perilous times (2nd Timothy 3:12). Women are different today. I see so many women covered in ugly tattoos. A favorite activity of women today is to go barhopping with girlfriends. No wonder guys like me are alone and cannot find a mate. Women are too independent nowadays, rebellious, angry and empowered by the courts. There are literally millions of divorced and single knocked up mothers all across the country, causalities of America's rotten feminist culture. There's nothing new under the sun...

Philippians 2:15, “That ye may be blameless and harmless, the sons of God, without rebuke, in the midst of a crooked and perverse nation, among whom ye shine as lights in the world;” Isaiah 1:4, “Ah sinful nation, a people laden with iniquity, a seed of evildoers, children that are corrupters: they have forsaken the LORD, they have provoked the Holy One of Israel unto anger, they are gone away backward.

We have a great opportunity today to prove our love for Jesus by being faithful in these unfaithfully times. We can still say with faithful Joshua today:

Joshua 24:15, “And if it seem evil unto you to serve the LORD, choose you this day whom ye will serve; whether the gods which your fathers served that were on the other side of the flood, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land ye dwell: but as for me and my house, we will serve the LORD.

I choose to serve the Lord Jesus Christ!

At Salvation You're Entering Into A Covenant With God

Ezekiel 16:8, Now when I passed by thee, and looked upon thee, behold, thy time was the time of love; and I spread my skirt over thee, and covered thy nakedness:​​ yea, I sware unto thee, and entered into a covenant with thee, saith the Lord GOD, and thou becamest mine.

I heard a wonderful sermon today by Pastor Jack Hyles (1926-2001) titled: “FALLING FROM GRACE.” This eternal truth is so precious! Dear friend, if you are still struggling to settle the assurance of God's salvation, this sermon is for YOU!!! I am writing this article from the truths I learned in the beautiful sermon. When a person enters into a covenant with God, to make it effective the Lord does several things according to Ezekiel 16:8...

  1. God says it out loud (Ezekiel 37:23)
  2. He wrote it down in the inspired Scriptures (John 20:31)
  3. God swore it (Titus 1:2)
  4. God engraves our name upon the palm of His hand (Isaiah 49:16)
  5. Offer up a Lamb as a token of the covenant (John 1:29)
  6. Apply the slain lamb's blood to the Mercy Seat in the Tabernacle (Hebrews 9:12, 24)
  7. Write the name of the person who entered into the covenant (Luke 10:20)

Boy this is great stuff!!! These things were all done to make the covenant more effective, so that both the covenanter and covenantee will be reminded of the promise. Do you see all the securities that God gives here to the sinner who BELIEVES ON THE LORD JESUS CHRIST?

Dear reader, our gracious God has given to us many proofs of His great love. Nobody wants lost sinners to get saved and go to Heaven, more than God Himself. 2nd Peter 3:9, “The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance. The unsaved world thinks the preaching of the truth of the Gospel is science-fiction, tommyrot, balderdash and nonsense. 1st Corinthians 1:18, “For the preaching of the cross is to them that perish foolishness; but unto us which are saved it is the power of God. Amen and amen!

Dear friend, if it is not in writing, it means nothing! I learned this a very long time ago. Anything not written down can be denied, and we all know how (when things go wrong) people love to deny things, evade responsibility and claim ignorance. If you are wise, then you ALWAYS get it in writing. If a quote for repairs to your automobile, home or motorcycle is not written down, it means nothing because at any time it can be denied, changed or cancelled.

Once saved, always saved!!! 

You cannot lose what you didn't earn. You cannot forfeit what you didn't work to get!

If you didn't get saved by good works, then how could you ever be lost by bad works?

Faith is the only righteous thing that I can do!

Salvation is not a reward for the righteous, it is a gift for the guilty!

Salvation is not doing your best, it is having Christ's best put to your account through receiving Him by faith.

Turning away from sinful ways would be a work. Faith puts all of the merit where it belongs, on the object of our faith, Jesus and His work.

If to “repent” means to forsake our sinful ways TO BE SAVED, but Jesus already paid for our sins by dying on the cross, then what are we repenting from?

The true Gospel always points you to CHRIST; a false gospel always points to YOU.

When a person gets saved, he or she is entering into an eternal COVENANT with God...

Ezekiel 16:8, “Now when I passed by thee, and looked upon thee, behold, thy time was the time of love; and I spread my skirt over thee, and covered thy nakedness:​​ yea, I sware unto thee, and entered into a covenant with thee, saith the Lord GOD, and thou becamest mine.”

Literally, we become God's physical property...

1st Corinthians 6:19-20, “What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own? For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God's.

That “price” is the precious blood of Jesus. ...

Ephesians 1:13-14, “In whom ye also trusted, after that ye heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation: in whom also after that ye believed, ye were sealed with that holy Spirit of promise, Which is the earnest of our inheritance until the redemption of the purchased possession, unto the praise of his glory.”
According tot what we just read, upon entering into an everlasting covenant with God, He seals us with His blessed Holy Spirit, as PROOF to the believer (and the Devil) that we now belong to God. Ezekiel 16:8b, “...and thou becamest mine.” The Holy Spirit confirms that we are now and forever God's property. 1st John 3:24, “And he that keepeth his commandments dwelleth in him, and he in him. And hereby we know that he abideth in us, by the Spirit which he hath given us.” Thank God for His blessed presence in the indwelling Holy Spirit.

God's Very Simple Plan Of Salvation

2nd Corinthians 11:1-4, “Would to God ye could bear with me a little in my folly: and indeed bear with me. For I am jealous over you with go...
