some things we must look at before we address those who falsely accuse Christians
of approving and promoting slavery.
and sisters, we know that the New
Covenant of Jesus Christ is not about saving the secular world or unsaved
people by healing the damage of their emotional hurts/brokenness, or the psychologically
damaged through therapeutic programs, or through social programs or changing
the world’s evils through a social revolution, although the Bible makes it
clear that we should care for the oppressed and bound everywhere. Most
certainly, after people are saved, healing on various levels and of various kinds
is possible through the love of God and His people, whose very nature He changes
to one of love and willing obedience to God.
through Jesus Christ, the Bible gives mankind the only solution to its
ills-SIN, stemming from the Adamic sin nature. The inherited sin nature, can
never be healed, only put to death through faith in Jesus Christ alone who can
forgive all sins and give the new birth of salvation to all who believe.
faithfully give the whole gospel message of the eternal truth of the love of God
in sending His Son Jesus Christ to save any that will believe in Him. However, holy
people, we know that there are some who misrepresent the gospel message and
preach it as a secular “cure” for damaged emotions, addictions, a better life, to
become a better person and/or to overcome their difficulties in life, without
ever mentioning repentance of sinners, and the forgiving of all sins through
faith in Jesus Christ alone.
are those who misrepresent the gospel as a way to attain a mere “personal
relationship” with God. Those who misrepresent the gospel by preaching it in these
ways are not preaching the true gospel that saves sinners, but a false gospel
that saves no one; what results is a bunch of unsaved sinful, deceived people. It
is extremely dangerous to ignore the truth of the trouble with all unsaved
people originating in their own sin nature. Even worse is the danger of
ignoring the gospel message of Jesus Christ the only cure.
brethren, there is the alarming, lying mantra of the secular world that “man is good”,
that “man does not need God to be good”, as they nervously lock their doors, windows,
cars etc. day and night with alarms and cameras for good measure.
there are the star trekian dreams of mankind seeing itself united as one to
conquer space, as they try to plot a course to the stars through the countless space
junk they have left there with the names of the different nations who have left
them; pass the mega weapons of war one nation points at the other knowing no
war can be won, only payback to whoever strikes first, guaranteeing mutual
destruction. Even some of their scientist admit that once men go to live in
space freed from all earthly restraining laws that limit behavior, in the light
of no perpetual sources of energy, they will at some point descend to madness
and/or savagely destroy themselves.
there are the countless dreamers of utopia where mankind is united and all are joyfully,
willfully equal and happy together, which ignores the civil and criminal
penalties necessary to enforce any such notions, which many still do not obey.
our Lord and Saviour has taken His people to His school of absolute truth and
we well understand the Adamic sin nature of the natural man, from which He has
saved and delivered us from. All through history when the natural man meets man
his mouth purses and his nose wrinkles as though he is smelling something bad-
the toxic to him maddening odor of “the other” who is not like him, or even if
like him he will find a way to still see in him some type of “otherness” to destroy.
When he does, he savagely fills the earth with the bondage and with the blood
of “the other” whose only crime whether real or imagined is being “other” than
himself in some way, shape or form.
called good thing done by mankind reeks with corruption and has no lasting
value in curing the horrific, cruel, merciless inherited Adamic sin nature of
mankind. All of mankind’s attempts to cure the evils of its own nature has been
and always will be a disastrous failure.
God has put
a code of expiration upon every human being born, and established His Son Jesus
Christ, as mankind’s last chance to be saved from their horrific Adamic sin
nature. He has given us His people the right, authority, and command to take
His message to save all that we can before it is too late.
it is against this backdrop that we by the power, authority and command given
by God preach the gospel, and address every accusation against our Lord and
only Saviour Jesus Christ.

Heb. 13: 3Remember them that are in bonds, as bound with them; and them
which suffer adversity, as being yourselves also in the body.
Mat 25:39 Or when saw we thee sick, or in
prison, and came unto thee? 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.
Act 12:5 Peter therefore was kept in
prison: G5438 but prayer was made without ceasing
of the church unto God for him.
Heb 11:36 And others had trial of cruel
mockings and scourgings, yea, moreover of bonds and imprisonment:
of scripture, brothers and sisters, we know that Christians were often imprisoned
back then for their faith, and it continues now in many places. No doubt we
should remember them, feel their pain too in our hearts and do our utmost to
pray for, visit and help them all that we can. Again, it is evident that in the
world Christians continue to suffer persecution and imprisonment today and no
doubt in the future as well.
America, holy people, while Christians are not imprisoned-YET for their faith, there
can be no doubt they are being criminalized for their faith and suffer
persecution even from the government. Christian shaming is explicitly public in
the secular media, major corporations etc. against individual
Christians/groups, even Christian companies. Any public mention of Jesus Christ
is seen as “offensive” and “non-inclusive”, the Bible is banned from the public
schools, and many colleges, universities, even private ones. Some employers
forbid the display of the Bible in the work place by workers who might want to
read it on their lunch break. To avoid problems many read it in their phones or
other instruments. The secular movie industry is working over- time to present many
movies in which the name of God is cursed outright and the name of our great
Saviour is used as an epithet while Christians are demonized.
dearly beloveds, our care for those in
prison or in bonds ought to extend to unsaved persons in prison, enslavement or
captivity as well: Phm 1:10 I beseech thee for my son Onesimus,
whom I have begotten in my bonds.
intent here when helping unbelievers in prison is not to start a mere social
program of help and visitation, but in addition to witness to them that they
might be saved.
we address those who falsely claim that Christians approve of and promote slavery?

Brothers and sisters, let us go on in the
blessings of the treasury of the scriptures, to enjoy ourselves together with God
in His everlasting eternal word.
Heb 13: 2Be not forgetful to entertain strangers: for thereby some have
entertained angels unawares.
Forgetful: to forget, neglecting, no
longer caring for, forgotten, given over to oblivion, i.e. uncared for.
The intent here, brothers and sisters, is
not to go around entertaining strangers in hopes of seeing an angel up close
and personal but in the act of being hospitable to strangers, an angel might be
among them UNAWARES.
Focus on UNAWARES: Unawares: to be hidden,
to be hidden from one, secretly, unawares, without knowing.
The very heart of this verse, brethren,
exhorts us to identify with and have continued compassion for strangers in
need, or who have suffered adversity as we may have, or to help them as we
would want to be helped under similar
25:35 - For I was an hungred, and ye gave me meat: I was thirsty, and ye
gave me drink: I was a stranger, and ye took me in: :
Exo 23:9 - Also
thou shalt not oppress a stranger: for ye know the heart of a stranger, seeing
ye were strangers in the land of Egypt.
Deu 10:19 - Love
ye therefore the stranger: for ye were strangers in the land of Egypt.
The Hebrews suffered horribly as strangers
in Egypt, however, brethren anyone who has undergone hardships, been
friendless, endured maltreatment, abuse, treated poorly, been needy, should remember
how they felt, and have compassion on those in need of help. It is good to help
our families, and those we know, but we should still be compassionate to help
those outside of our known circles.
Entertain strangers: to show love and give
hospitality to strangers. However, God forbids his people to ever welcome any
one and any stranger coming to us promoting any teachings not based on
Jhn 10:5 - And
a stranger will they not follow, but will flee from him: for they know not the
voice of strangers.
Angels: God created these spiritual beings; none are born
of women and have greater power and might than any human being on this
unredeemed earth. However, no angel ever has any power to be autonomous of God’s
sovereign will and power; and are sent to execute His will. Directly, from this,
holy people, we understand that God has never ceased to rule on the earth even
as He does from heaven above, according to His sovereign will.
Angels assigned to children and His people:
- Take heed that ye despise not one of these little ones; for I say unto you,
That in heaven their angels do always behold the face of my Father which is in
Heb 1:14 - Are
they not all ministering spirits, sent forth to minister for them who shall be heirs
Here is what God promises directly to those
who do or would harm them in any way: Mar 9:42 - And
whosoever shall offend one of these little ones that believe in me, it
is better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and he were cast
into the sea.
Psa 104:4 - Who
maketh his angels spirits; his ministers a flaming fire:
Mat 13:41 - The
Son of man shall send forth his angels, and they shall gather out of his
kingdom all things that offend, and them which do iniquity;
Brothers and sisters, we know the Bible never
promotes or has any teachings that we should put up a sign of “Angels welcome
here”, or any doctrine of angel worship, seeking messages from angels, praying
to angels, seeking angelic help; instead God commands that we pray directly to Him
for His help, not indirectly seeking the help of angels. God alone is in charge
of commanding the angels for His purposes, no mere human being will ever have
such authority from God.
There are God’s angels and then, dearly
beloveds, we know the devil can make himself look like an angel of light and
has his evil angels which we are never to welcome or entertain:
2Co 11:14 - And
no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light.
I don’t want this to be a study within a
study, feel free to study further on your own if you like with the
understanding that Christians are protected from being possessed by the devil
or any evil spirit, because God has taken permanent residency in every believer
through the faith of His Son Jesus Christ. let us not be preoccupied, or meddle
with the angels of any kind, suffice it to say that this is God’s business not
ours. THE BOTTOM LINE REGARDING ANY ANGEL AS WELL AS CERTAIN STRANGERS:
Gal 1:8 - But
though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that
which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed.

Heb 13: 1Let brotherly love continue.
exhortation, brothers and sisters, but said in the spirit that the Hebrew Christians
did have it and must continue it, as everyone who claims the name of Jesus
Christ is commanded to do as well, without any exception.
love: the love of brothers (or sisters), brotherly love; in the NT the love
which Christians cherish for each other as brethren; Romans 12:10; 1 Thessalonians 4:9; Hebrews 13:1; 1 Peter 1:22; 2 Peter 1:7, cf. 1 John 5:1.
and sisters, we know that the brotherly love the Bible declares is love
fashioned in the eternal, boundary and everlasting standard of the final,
finished unchanging truth of scripture nothing outside of it having any equal
Jhn 15:12 - This is my commandment, That ye
love one another, as I have loved you.
Jhn 17:26 - And I have declared unto them thy
name, and will declare it: that the love wherewith thou hast loved me
may be in them, and I in them.
beloveds, God’s love has eternal unchanging standards and boundaries: Rom 12:9 - Let love be without
dissimulation. Abhor that which is evil; cleave to that which is good.
in Christ fulfills the law: Rom 13:8 - Owe no man any thing, but to love
one another: for he that loveth another hath fulfilled the law.
love harms no one: Rom 13:10 - Love worketh no ill to his
neighbour: therefore love is the fulfilling of the law.
love is given in humility: Eph 4:2 - With all lowliness and meekness,
with longsuffering, forbearing one another in love;
love is based only on the truth of scripture and can never be separated from
its eternal truth. Truth without love is cruel destroying legalism, and love
without biblical truth is a deceiving satanic lie. Eph 4:15 - But speaking the truth in love,
may grow up into him in all things, which is the head, even Christ:
love can never be separated from the truth: 1Pe 1:22 - Seeing ye have purified your souls
in obeying the truth through the Spirit unto unfeigned love of the brethren, see
that ye love one another with a pure heart fervently:
love cannot contain evil actions and evil behaviors of any kind : 2Co 4:2 - But have renounced the hidden
things of dishonesty, not walking in craftiness, nor handling the word of God
deceitfully; but by manifestation of the truth commending ourselves to every
man's conscience in the sight of God.
that God forbids: 1Jo 2:15 - Love not the world, neither the
things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the
Father is not in him.
is not merely a said love: 1Jo 3:18 - My little children, let us not
love in word, neither in tongue; but in deed and in truth.
God’s love is evidence of the new birth:
1Jo 4:7 - Beloved, let us love one another:
for love is of God; and every one that loveth is born of God, and knoweth God.
the sole origin and source of love: 1Jo 4:10 - Herein is love, not that we loved
God, but that he loved us, and sent his Son to be the propitiation for
love is the final evidence and the final standard of truth of who has eternal
life and who does not have eternal life: 1Jo 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.
God’s love reveals those who belong to God from those who belong to the devil: 1Jo 3:10 - In this the children of God are
manifest, and the children of the devil: whosoever doeth not righteousness is
not of God, neither he that loveth not his brother.
that has been said here, the Bible goes on through out in more and greater
detail. Love is more than a foot note to be manipulated to allow evil to
flourish, and to distort the true eternal love of God to mask and promote evil,
or to teach evil as anything but what God has declared it to be, evil, of the
devil and those who belong to the devil’s kingdom.
the truth as taught in scripture, respecting God and the execution of his purposes
through Christ, and respecting the duties of man, opposing alike to the
superstitions of the Gentiles and the inventions of the Jews, and the corrupt
opinions and precepts of false teachers even those who have secretly crept in
truth as a personal excellence ,that candor of mind which is free from
affection, pretence, simulation, falsehood, deceit.
Love: the love of God Himself who is love, given to
and arising unfeigned out of the hearts of all those whom He indwells through
faith in Jesus Christ: good will, love, benevolence, brotherly love, love

fire: Fire of such a cataclysmic magnitude of power that it utterly annihilates, destroys all and everything upon whom
it is visited.
To the saints (G40 hagios), the intense
penetrating and powerful fire of God is the friendly fire of the refiner that
patiently, carefully cures burnishes, burns off the dross of the old nature, to
produce the purity of the fine silver of the holiness of the new nature, but to
the wicked it is the fire of intense violent wrath which utterly consumes the

appearance in the mount before the

made no exceptions then, brothers and sister, and God will make no exceptions
now or ever. In fact, God will never compromise, deny, bow, agree, change, contract,
blink, keep silent, look the other way or approve of sin period, regardless of
whether a person is rich or poor so called high or low. This is God’s
unchanging standard and boundary regarding sin for all time. God absolutely
makes no promises of peace to His enemies, but absolute eternal damnation, condemnation,
eternal punishment destruction and death.

door so that anyone can enter in at will. In addition, ask them to call you when
they give out press cards to the general public at will to have total access to

Men who with one mind congregate and work together in evil collusion to form

the carnal religious “dynasty” shall be done away with, such as that system of

Heb 7:16; Heb 9:10
the wicked are and will be detected by God’s people, however, again, only God’s
eyes will see the wicked who have attached themselves to the righteous and who
appear so closely like them that only He can detect them and safely sever them

amongst His people without harming the truly righteous. Luk 3:17 Whose fan is

That ye be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word,
nor by letter as from us, as that the day of Christ is at hand.
Judgment has already begun in the
house of God; however, no Christian will stand in eternal condemnation before
the great white throne to receive everlasting punishment only the wicked will
appear here to receive eternal damnation based on their evil works, as they
have rejected the only source of salvation able to redeem people from all their
sins. The wicked will be judged as guilty of eternal death, but the righteous
will receive eternal life and rewards for their works:
11:18 And the nations were angry, and thy wrath is come, and the
time of the dead, that they should be judged, and that thou shouldest give reward unto thy servants the prophets,
and to the saints, and them that fear thy name, small and great; and shouldest
destroy them which destroy the earth.
The people of God are ordained to be
victorious through the power of Jesus Christ the Lord of power: Rev 7:14
And I said unto him, Sir, thou knowest. And he said to me, These are they which
came out of great tribulation, and
have washed their robes, and made them white in the blood of the Lamb.
Rev 12:11 And they overcame him by the
blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their
testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death.

when God finishes His shaking only His kingdom and His people will be left
standing for all eternity.

teaches us in eternal absolute terms from His word that He never gives anyone an
excuse, option or authority to willfully and unrepentantly turn away from Him
in any way shape, manner or form whatsoever, which prevents us from being
tempted in ignorance to think otherwise. Nor are we foolish or blind to the
truth that those who do willfully and unrepentantly turn away from God, are in
no wise true Christians, but were always enemies, false from the beginning of
their entry amongst us.
as no man escaped death under two or more witnesses when they violated the Law
of Moses the man of God on earth, the punishment is far greater for those on
earth who willfully unrepentantly violate the commands from God, sovereign Lord
who speaks directly to us with all authority from heaven in the New Covenant
gospel of Jesus Christ. God regards all who willfully, unrepentantly turn away
from Him as His enemies, and none shall escape His hand of retribution, fiery
indignation and wrath.
Bible gives many examples of such persons, especially since they are not just
walking away peacefully, but become enemies of the cross in word and deed: Mat 13:25- 39; Act 20:30-31; Rom 1:18- 32; Gal 1: 6 -9;
Phl 3:18-19; 2Pe 2:1; Jde 1:4.
let it be said repeatedly, dearly beloveds, who turn away from Him willfully and unrepentantly will ever be excused
by God: Rom

seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal
power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse:

interpretation, and belief of the inerrant truth of scripture. We do not excuse them but God
encourages us who are sound in the gospel: 2Th 3:14 And if any man obey not our word by
this epistle, note that man, and have no company with him, that he may be
Yet count him not as an enemy, but admonish him as a brother.
again God encourages us to help such:
- Brethren, if any of you do err from the truth, and one convert him; 20
- Let him know, that he which converteth the sinner from the error of his way
shall save a soul from death, and shall hide a multitude of sins.
Err: to go astray from the truth, wander,
Converteth: to cause to return, to bring back, to
the love and obedience of God, to love wisdom and righteousness.
- Brethren, if a man be overtaken in a fault,
ye which are spiritual, restore such an one in the spirit of meekness;
considering thyself, lest thou also be tempted.
to fall beside or near something; a lapse or deviation from truth and
uprightness; a sin, misdeed.
spiritual: one who is filled with and governed by the Spirit of God.
Restore: to render, i.e. to fit, sound, complete; to
mend (what has been broken or rent), to repair; to complete; to fit out, equip,
put in order, arrange, adjust to fit or frame for one's self, prepare, ethically:
to strengthen, perfect, complete, make one what he ought to be.
an one: such as this, of this kind or sort; truly this, i.e. of this sort (to
denote character or individuality):-like, such (an one).
holy people God has set limits to our efforts to lovingly correct any one
claiming to be a brother or sister to turn back to the truth of the gospel message: Tit 3:10 - A man that is
an heretick after the first and second admonition reject;
cannot argue people into believing the truth. God commands us to move on to help
others instead of continuing to waste time with those proven to be heretics who
are corrupt and reject the truth of scripture.
whole of the church, brethren, is commanded to be perfect. Not in any sense of
never making mistakes or over coming sins, we know how God wants us to deal
with these; but in the sense of that
spiritual perfection in being grounded, rooted, of one body and mind in the
truth of the doctrine of the gospel of Jesus Christ, to please God, know His
will by His word, and be impervious to being taken advantage of by the tricks, schemes,
deceptions, plans, plots, and heresies of the wicked, and the devil.

JOURNEY IN HEBREWS
we get to the interpretation of Heb. 12:25, brothers and sisters, it is necessary to look at what this verse
absolutely does not mean.
(G40 hagios), we know the aforementioned verse (Heb 12: 25) is absolutely not claiming salvation to mean as
some falsely teach that Christians can or will fall away, be lost and go to
hell, for we know it is absolutely impossible for God to lie; therefore, we
rest securely in the scriptures that He has absolutely declared before in these
passages and many more than I can put here, starting with the words of Jesus Christ our
- Whoso eateth my flesh, and drinketh my blood, hath eternal life; and I will raise him up at the last day.
- And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish,
neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand.
- For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that
whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. 17
- For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the
world through him might be saved.
- There is therefore now no condemnation
to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the
Spirit. (Note the word IF never appears in this verse because walking and life
in the Spirit can only be attained through faith in Jesus Christ, not human
will or efforts).
damnatory sentence, condemnation. Romans
- For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of
God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.
9:12 - Neither by the blood
of goats and calves, but by his own blood
he entered in once into the holy place, having obtained eternal redemption for us.
Eternal: without end, never to cease, everlasting.
- Whosoever is born of God doth not commit sin; for his seed remaineth in him: and he cannot sin, because
he is born of God.
Jhn 5: 4For whatsoever is born of God
overcometh the world: and this is the victory that overcometh the world, even
our faith. 5Who is he that overcometh the world,
but he that believeth that Jesus is the Son of God?
Jhn 5: 18We know that whosoever is born of God
sinneth not; but he that is begotten of God keepeth himself, and that wicked
one toucheth him not. 19And we know that we are of God, and the
whole world lieth in wickedness.
unto him that is able to keep you from falling, and to present you faultless
before the presence of his glory with exceeding joy,
Luk 5:38 - But new wine must be put into new bottles; and
both are preserved.
Brothers and sisters, I want to add the correct
interpretation of 1 John 1: 9 in the true context of the scriptures: Christ’s
blood cleanses all who believe from ALL SIN FOR EVER, the ALL IN THIS VERSE REALLY MEANS ALL, NOT SOME LEFT OVER FOR THE BELIEVER TO KEEP
BEGGING GOD FOR FORGIVENESS, ALREADY OBTAINED THROUGH THE FINAL FINISHED WORK
OF SALVATION THROUGH JESUS CHRIST THE SOLE SAVIOUR. The believer is not a
co-saviour responsible for working to get forgiven. I know most of us know
this, but some do not.
1 Jhn 1: 9If
we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and
to cleanse us from all
If Jesus left us work to do regarding cleansing our
sins, then it would mean IN ERROR His gift of salvation is not free, seeing we
still have to pay something in our labors for it. The plain eternal and
absolute truth is that praise God through Jesus Christ we are given salvation as a gift, not a partial
Common sense, holy people, tells us if somebody
claimed to give us a gift and then asks for payment we would know they lied
because you don’t pay for gifts, if you do it is not a gift. Our salvation is a gift, to claim it is not
is grave error. Anyone thinking this way should repent and come believing and
receiving the free gift of salvation through faith in Jesus Christ.
