          Beloveds, we must clear up the lie that when the Lord told Joshua he would have good success through obeying the Law, that this was meant for Christians today. The Lord told this to Joshua that in obeying the Old Covenant of the Law God would give him success in conquering certain lands and taking these lands for the nation of Israel: Joshua 1: 5 There shall not any man be able to stand before thee all the days of thy life: as I was with Moses, so I will be with thee: I will not fail thee, nor forsake thee. 6 Be strong and of a good courage: for unto this people shalt thou divide for an inheritance the land, which I sware unto their fathers to give them.
          Also in keeping the Old Covenant of the Law, (which is all they had from God), he would not face the wrath of God and die as Aaron and Moses did for their disobedience to God in not keeping the Old Covenant of the Law: Num. 27: 12 And the LORD said unto Moses, Get thee up into this mount Abarim, and see the land which I have given unto the children of Israel. 13 And when thou hast seen it, thou also shalt be gathered unto thy people, as Aaron thy brother was gathered. 14 For ye rebelled against my commandment in the desert of Zin, in the strife of the congregation, to sanctify me at the water before their eyes: that is the water of Meribah in Kadesh in the wilderness of Zin.
          Moses never preached that the Old Covenant of the Law would make anyone permanently righteous in the sight of God. Here is the truth, preached by our Saviour Jesus Christ: Jhn 5:46 For had ye believed Moses, ye would have believed me: for he wrote of me.
           Luk 24:44 And he said unto them, These are the words which I spake unto you, while I was yet with you, that all things must be fulfilled, which were written in the law of Moses, and in the prophets, and in the psalms, concerning me.

          Gal 2:21 I do not frustrate the grace of God: for if righteousness come by the law, THEN CHRIST IS DEAD IN VAIN.
          See Galatians 3, which explains God’s purposes for the Law; and how Jesus Christ has delivered us from it for all time. Feel free to study on your own the numerous verses that fully declare that Jesus Christ is the eternal Saviour and final sole source of eternal salvation for all time for all who believe in Him. See John 14:6.


          Anyone willfully claiming salvation based on keeping the Old Covenant of the Law and/ or combining it with the New Covenant of Jesus Christ, or anything else is not considered a Christian according to the Bible.

          Gal 2:21 I do not frustrate the grace of God: for if righteousness come by the law, THEN CHRIST IS DEAD IN VAIN.

          Gal 3:10 For as many as are of the works of the law are under the CURSE: for it is written, CURSED is every one that continueth not in all things which are written in the book of the law to do them. 11 But that NO MAN is justified by the law in the sight of God, it is evident: for, The just shall live by faith.

          1Ti. 1:5 Now the end of the commandment is charity out of a pure heart, and of a good conscience, and of faith unfeigned:6 From which some having swerved have turned aside unto vain jangling;
          7 Desiring to be teachers of the law; understanding neither what they say, nor whereof they affirm.

          1Ti 1:9 Knowing this, that the law is not made for a righteous man, but for the lawless and disobedient, for the ungodly and for sinners, for unholy and profane, for murderers of fathers and murderers of mothers, for manslayers, 10 For whoremongers, for them that defile themselves with mankind, for menstealers, for liars, for perjured persons, and if there be any other thing that is contrary to sound doctrine; 11 According to the glorious gospel of the blessed God, which was committed to my trust.

          John 14:6 Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.


    Sat, Feb 24th - 3:45PM



    Brothers and sisters, my eyes were opened, I did the only thing ordained by God that would save my immortal soul from hell. I fell upon the Rock, Jesus Christ and came as a helpless sinner, in faith believing that He paid for my sins with His sinless shed blood, bodily death upon the cross, burial and resurrection. Having received the eternal pardon of all my sins through Jesus Christ and not by any works of righteousness that I have done, the dreadful void, and terrible loneliness that had enveloped me for so long vanished, and for the first time in my life through faith in Jesus Christ, I felt spiritually whole, complete, fulfilled, full of hope and joy. Salvation brought me peace with God, gone was the certainty He was angry at me. Now I was accepted in the beloved.

    King James Bible JUDE 1: 23
    And others save with fear, pulling them out of the fire; hating even the garment spotted by the flesh.

    Christian Standard Bible
    save others by snatching them from the fire; have mercy on others but with fear, hating even the garment defiled by the flesh.

    Contemporary English Version
    Rescue any who need to be saved, as you would rescue someone from a fire. Then with fear in your own hearts, have mercy on everyone who needs it. But hate even the clothes of those who have been made dirty by their filthy deeds.


    My growth towards Christian maturity began to blossom. I no longer needed people to see what I could suck out of them to fill that bottomless hole that had been in my soul for way too long. Through Jesus Christ I was filled with His love, and more than enough to give to others, out of love for them and love for Him. I found a bible believing church, and they fully embraced me with the profound love that is given to God’s people for one another, and all men.


    In my work and secular life, people started to tell me that I seemed to have it “all together”, and wondered why. I am always glad to tell them the sole truth for my confidence and assurance, that all who believe in the sinless Son of God Jesus Christ have, through faith in Him.  The haunting sense of feeling inferior to other people left too, because the standard and boundaries of my identity are set Rock solid in Jesus Christ forever, not in people anymore.


    Some might ask why bother with telling people about false gospels, I think the aforementioned is answer enough. We must continually preach, teach and tell everyone that we can about the gospel of Jesus Christ, as commanded by God, that all who believe in Him will be saved.



    The cacophony of what all these phony, fake, religions, denominations, doctrines etc, represent are made perfectly clear  and must be absolutely understood within the gospel of Jesus Christ.

    Why, brothers and sisters are there so many false doctrines about salvation?


    The reason is because those who adhere to these false doctrines totally ignore the everlasting truth of the gospel of Jesus Christ. Some do it out of ignorance, and/or have been deceived. Then there is the hard core that know the truth but choose to pervert the Bible for gain and are not truly Christians at all.


    Nevertheless, there are those who when they hear the truth will repent and turn away from these evil false doctrines to the gospel of Jesus Christ in trust and faith. Those who will not repent and turn to God, will die and go to hell to await the final judgement in the lake of fire.




    Rom 1:28 - And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient;


    2Ti 3:8 - Now as Jannes and Jambres withstood Moses, so do these also resist the truth: men of corrupt minds, reprobate concerning the faith.


     Tit 1:16 - They profess that they know God; but in works they deny him, being abominable, and disobedient, and unto every good work reprobate.


    Dearly beloveds, not ALL of the believers  tears, pleas, arguments, nor all the truth of the Bible will be able to convict, convince, persuade, or compel the unrepentant into repentance.  Therefore, God rejects the unrepentant, since they reject His will. He turns them over to do their own evil will=reprobate minds.


    Look, brothers and sisters, I know the fact that neither God and certainly not we ourselves can persuade the unrepentant to repentance is troubling, hurtful to us. We do not want to see anyone perish, and some of these unrepentant at large  are in our families and social networks. However, the unrepentant tend to harm the believers, it just goes with their unrepentant DNA. The unrepentant have doomed themselves through their own willful continual blasphemy.




    2 Thess 1: 6 Seeing it is a righteous thing with God to recompense tribulation to them that trouble you; 7And to you who are troubled rest with us, when the Lord Jesus shall be revealed from heaven with his mighty angels, 8In flaming fire taking vengeance on them that know not God, and that obey not the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ: 9Who shall be punished with everlasting destruction from the presence of the Lord, and from the glory of his power;



    There are countless false doctrines arising and more false doctrines  than can be put here, such as chrislam, combining the gospel with other religions, etc, but let us start with these:


    Salvation is not a free gift, and requires additional work on the part of the recipient.


    Salvation can be lost temporarily.


    Salvation can be lost permanently.


    After salvation, believers lose fellowship with God when they sin.


    Fellowship with God is lost when Christians sin and restored when they confess-cyclically.


    Salvation requires keeping a short account by continual confession of sins to avoid dying with unconfessed sin and be lost.


    Salvation of itself is insufficient to be saved, therefore, one must belong to a specific denomination, organization, institution or doctrine to be saved.




    Make no mistake, holy people, every doctrine of additions needed for salvation apart from faith in the complete, final, finished, inerrant eternal work of Jesus Christ are all lies -  straight from the devil the father of lies.




    Those who belong to these false religions etc. will be offended. Quite frankly, I know I was when I met a true Christian, who told me the truth that my church/doctrine were false and I was still unsaved and lost because there is no salvation apart from faith in Jesus Christ alone, whom God has appointed as the only Saviour for all who will believe.


    Brethren, I was shocked, worried, rightfully afraid. I searched the bible with a life or death vigor so that some of the pages were loosened because I was so desperate to see if my particular denomination and doctrine could be validated by it as a means of salvation.


    I also found no, zero, zilch, validation from the eternal truth of scripture that validated any other denomination, organization, institution, man made doctrine, religion etc. through which anyone could claim to be saved.


    I realized from the truth of the Bible, that my salvation based on a false church and its false doctrines  was false and I was still unsaved and dead in my sins. This explained to me the gut feeling that despite all my false  church involvement, that I was not truly saved.


    Dearly beloveds, I had a lot to lose in a worldly sense, I virtually had the keys to my false church. I was highly regarded, and regularly spoke from the pulpit by invitation of my false church leaders. The whole church loved me and was ready to give me a paid position in the church. I was greeted by the church with just as much favor as the false church leaders. Besides all this, I had made many friendships dear to me. My life involved/revolved around being a part of this false church.


    What was I to do, since I found out the truth from the Bible?

    END NOTES-biblical perspectives in and through tribulations/trials


    Holy people, as totally new spiritual beings, let us all say no matter the persecutions, trials, and tribulations: WE ARE MORE THAN CONQUERORS


    Ro 8:35Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword?


    36As it is written, For thy sake we are killed all the day long; we are accounted as sheep for the slaughter.


    37Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us. 38For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, 39Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.






    2Co 5:17 - Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.




    1. new


    1. as respects form


    1. recently made, fresh, recent, unused, unworn


    2. as respects substance.


    1. of a new kind, unprecedented, novel, uncommon, unheard of.




    Eph 6:16 - Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked.


    1Ti 6:12 - Fight the good fight of faith, lay hold on eternal life, whereunto thou art also called, and hast professed a good profession before many witnesses.

    END NOTES-don’t seek revenge:


    My brothers, my sisters, many of us are gratefully, urgently praying for you and we do not know your names, but God always knows you, and all of His people.  Oh that we could embrace you walk with you, nevertheless, Jesus, our Lord and Saviour is always with you and receiving our prayers that you would know, believe and accept that God will avenge His people for what His enemies do to His people, whether in this life or after before His great white throne. He that toucheth you toucheth the apple of His eye. Vengeance belongs to God, He will surely repay.

    Anybody messing with God's people is messing with God and He takes it personally.


    Zec 2:8 - For thus saith the LORD of hosts; After the glory hath he sent me unto the nations which spoiled you: for he that toucheth you toucheth the apple of his eye.


    Holy people do everything God allows in the times of troubles coming through people. We can escape if necessary; we can call on  any and all of the powers and authorities that God has established to fight and punish evil doers, we can defend ourselves if necessary.


    Fret not because of the enemy-don’t get mad, get glad.


    God the Father indwells us equally with God the Son and God the Holy Spirit to empower us to have the faith that pleases Him. faith is a choice. God has made His home in you, in all of His people.The truth is all choices are made out of the inborn nature of men (this includes women too). Therefore, the man or woman without the Spirit makes choices to serve his flesh, never God. 

    We know, dearly beloveds, unsaved people can choose to do some very good things. Nevertheless, any and every thing man or woman born with the dead innate Adamic sin nature does without the Spirit is never to serve God, but  to serve his or her own fleshly will in some way shape or form: 1Co 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.




    Foolishness: silliness, i.e. absurdity:—foolishness


    1Co 2:14 - But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned. 




    But you dearly beloveds, know and  fully believe and understand that the sole reason why you, me, all of us who belong to God can choose to be of good cheer, will to do good, to love, have trust and faith in Jesus Christ is not of ourselves, it is the free gift of God who has permanently given us a mind and heart like His. We love Him, because He first loved us. Through faith in Him, God applied the death of Jesus Christ to us and slew our old man or Adamic sin nature on the cross of His Son, baptized us in Jesus’ sinless blood washing all of our sins away, and raised us up alive in Jesus Christ as a new man or woman, a totally new creation with a new nature, new redeemed conscience and the power and will to love, trust, and obey Him.


     Therefore, you me, all of us can and are well able to be glad, to choose the good because through Jesus Christ our Lord, we are made eternally righteous and good.


    Be of good cheer: rest,  quiet, calm assurance, courage, full of cheerfulness.

    Thank God for the great number of working servant leaders involved in the life of the flock. They know the trials, persecutions, and storms of all sizes happening to their flocks and to themselves as well. Praise the Lord for their faithful shepherding in the person of Jesus Christ, guiding their flocks to glorify God and leading the flock with wisdom, comfort, truth and love through the many tough times in the body. They know they cannot tend the flock alone and are always helping the flock to grow in service to the body, and sound biblical doctrine.


    Praise God. Oh, that God would open our spiritual eyes, brothers and sisters, for we would see the multitudes of saints (G40 hagios) the body general, that gratefully keep the switchboard to the throne of God in heaven fully lit continuously by making all kinds of prayers for the holy people everywhere. The Holy Spirit walking amongst the body helping all of our prayers for one another and ourselves as well. Above all, that God would open our spiritual eyes too to see the Son of God our Saviour, and Advocate making intercessions before His Father God for us His people without ceasing. OPEN OUR EYES LORD!


    Then there are those “white gloves” kinds of pastors who enjoy the pulpit more than the people, live in ivory towers, and would never get down amongst the sheep, lest they dirty their hands. These falsely preach that doubting God is good, and persecution is only happening outside of America. If they admit it at all it is minimized as trivial and unimportant.


    Brothers and sisters, God knows that right here in America, just as in the rest of the world, the flock of God is going through very dangerous persecutions and trials of all kinds.


    Some Christians are persecuted so much so that they know not if they leave their homes whether they or their families will make it back alive. Christian persecutions, some fiery have been going on and will go on all over the world until the return of our Lord Jesus Christ.


    There are cities where block after blocks of abandoned homes stand, because the Christians had to run for their lives and to keep their families safe. Don’t ever expect the secular media to tell the truth that Christians are being killed, besieged with violence, harassment, intimidation, and cruel treatment of all sorts right here in America.


    Our trials, holy people, can come through people, situation, circumstances, conditions etc. God allows them and determines the level and degree of intensity of all of it, for His glory and our good. 


    God allows, knows, holy people that adversity distresses many of us and takes us out of our comfort zones when we experience these things. Surely this is one of the many BLESSINGS  and  advantages of suffering- to overcome being dependent on things of themselves. We gain stability, when we believe, accept that God alone- the only true source of eternal stability and unshakeable comfort. Another BLESSING and advantage is that we submit to His will in troubles and obey Him in it to show we truly love Him and belong to Him. Certainly, our compassion and understanding will grow in our experiences to offer comfort, assurances, and help to others going through the same things. There are a multitude of BLESSINGS  and  things we learn through God in our trials, besides all of the aforementioned.


    Praise God who has equipped every believer to overcome and benefit from and through trials, to grow in faith, trust, to glorify him. Our comfort zone must be and in Jesus Christ alone, despite our trials. Brothers and sisters, God is with each of us in every adversity, the same as in times of peace. Jesus never promised us peace in the world. What Jesus promised us is far better- PEACE IN HIM. Jhn 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. To be continued END NOTES.

    Jesus said to His disciples; LET US GO ON TO THE OTHER SIDE






    1Jo 4:16 And we have known and believed the love that God hath to us. God is love; and he that dwelleth in love dwelleth in God, and God in him.


    1Jo 4:17 Herein is our love made perfect, that we may have boldness in the day of judgment: because as he is, so are we in this world.




    1Jo 4:18 - There is no fear in love; but perfect love casteth out fear: because fear hath torment. He that feareth is not made perfect in love.




    1Jo 4:19 - We love him, because he first loved us.




    Lord Jesus, I thank, agree and believe without a doubt that you love me always and are always with me at all times no matter what is happening in my life. I absolutely trust in you, that you care about me. By the power that you have given me I cast out earthly fear forever, and choose your perfect everlasting love over it. No matter the trial, even the ones that only appear to be fiery and strange, yet is common to all Christians, I will stand in and on the faith of your perfect love, in which none of these things shall be able to move or shake me. I will carry out my life doing all I can to serve and represent you daily, however, every care and concern of mine I will quickly give to you Lord. In so doing, this does not mean passivity, but wisdom to not allow myself to be tortured by or through my trials. Thank you for the wisdom to know that my burdens are too big for me to ever carry on my own, alone. When I hand all of these things over to you, Lord Jesus, then relieved of my burdens, I can see clearly how you are directing my path in the way I should go for your glory and my good.  


    1Pe 5:7 - Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you.


    Casting: to throw upon, cast upon, give up to, God.


    All: I.Individually; each, every, any, all, the whole, everyone, all things, everything, II.collectively; A.some of all types.


    Care: care, anxiety.


    Careth: to care about, have regard for.


     Father, I cast all my cares on your only Son and Saviour Jesus Christ who showed how much he cared for me and the whole world in His final, finished and complete work of salvation. I thank you with all my heart Lord, that through you I have eternally escaped the wrath of God and eternal damnation with the devil, and all those who follow him. Moreover, I love you and will walk in the power that you have given me to be able to overcome the practice of any sin. To be continued.
