A GLORIOUS church, Pastor mike gass

A Study of the Origin, Identity, Heritage, and Integrity of the New Testament Church

I usually do not quote books.
But I just have to share this. It’s a book from Pastor Emeritus Dr. Mike Gass an Evangelist from Harvest Baptist Church, Medford, Oregon. His book, “A Glorious Church”. Available from Striving Together ( https://strivingtogether.com/products/a-glorious-church ). If you have questions or comments you can reach Pastor Emeritus Dr. Mike Gass of Harvest Baptist Temple:
mkgass@hbtmedford.org.

I found both humor and truth in this excerpt.

Page 72-73 [May be subject to copyright]

“A few years ago, I had the privilege of going to Israel and visiting the Jordan River. …we watched many people…being baptized in that river. I was a little amused that so many wanted to be baptized in that river. …the [baptizing] pastor asked a question and they, in turn, would whisper something in his ear.

…it became obvious he was asking them in what manner they preferred to be baptized. Some had chosen to be sprinkled, some to have water poured on their head (affusion), while still others had just their faces placed in the water (in an effort to protect their hair). Some baptized three times forward, others three times backward; some dunked themselves by sitting down in the water. They were all so very excited… [Hahaha]

This scene I have described to you would cause little grief to most Christians today. Yet, once again it demonstrates the great confusion that exists today among Christians. The Greek word “baptizo” literally means “to immerse”. It does not mean sprinkle, pour, or partially immerse. It is only through immersion that we are able to demonstrate the death, burial, and resurrection of our Lord. This is the proper mode of baptism and this alone! …Baptism by definition, by example and by command requires that a man be immersed. Any other mode is not baptism at all.”

I would add…getting baptized in the Jordan River may be considered generally as idolatry. An exception might be if you were in Israel….got saved and jumped in the Jordan River out of obedience and convenience (see Acts 8:37, missing from modern translations).

But wherever you choose to get baptized for heaven’s sake…you need to get wet! All the way under…immersed. Not 3 times forwards or backward. One will do. 🙂 Quit making a mockery out of Jesus Christ, the King James Bible and our believes.

Hey, buy his book…I really enjoyed it and I believe you will too.

Does the Church have the power and authority to forgive your sins?

“There is no offense, however serious, that Church cannot forgive.”, Catholic Catechism, Pg. 256, #982

“By Christ’s will, the Church posseses the power to forgive sins of the baptized…”, Pg. 257, #986

“Why doth this man thus speak blasphemies? who can forgive sins but God only?”, Mark 2:7

“And be ye kind one to another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God for Christ’s sake hath forgiven you.”, Ephesians 4:32

“Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need.”, Hebrews 4:16

This verse LOUDLY proclaims that forgiveness of sins comes from God’s throne, not the Church…

“Indeed bishops who are their successors, and priests, the bishops’ collaborators, continue to exercise this ministry. Indeed bishops and priests, by virtue of the sacrament of Holy Orders, have the power to forgive all sins “in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit.”, Pg. 255, #1461

“The Church must be able to forgive all penitents their offenses, even if they should sin until the last moment of their lives.” , Pg. 255, #979

The psalmist went straight to God:

“I acknowledge my sin unto thee, and mine iniquity have I not hid. I said, I will confess my transgressions unto the Lord; and thou forgavest the iniquity of my sin. Selah.”, Psalm 32:5

“Look upon mine affliction and my pain; and forgive all my sins.”, Psalm 25:18

And also in Psalm 51.

God never called us to go through a church for forgiveness.

Psalm 86:5, Colossians 3:13

Why then would the Catholic Church INSIST that forgiveness of sins is ONLY available through her?

“Were there no forgiveness of sins in the Church, there would be no hope of life to come or eternal liberation. Let us thank God who has given his Church such a gift.”, Pg. 256, #983

The Bible I read teaches is to look to Jesus for our salvation and forgiveness…the Catholic Church once again is in conflict with your Bible!

You are in bondage to the Catholic Church if you call yourself Catholic…whether you think so or not!

The BIBLE or the Catholic Church…which side will you choose?

WHEN GOD’S NAME IS A SWEAR WORD

The third commandment, COMMANDS us not to take the Lord’s name in vain. It goes on to say that He will not hold those guiltless that use His name as a swear word.

Exodus 20:7, “Thou shalt not take the name of the Lord thy God in vain; for the Lord will not hold him guiltless that taketh his name in vain.”

It turns my stomach when I hear people take the Lord’s name in vain, especially Christians…sometimes it is even painful, other times it makes me angry…they should know better.

There is a very good Richard Gere movie based on a true story called Hachi. It’s a tale about a man who rescues and befriends a dog. The movie is delightful…and for the most part, “safe”. The movie was rated G. The rating was probably appropriate. There were a few issues that I wished that they had a Rating of G and maybe a disclaimer or something to warn parents.

One thing really caught my eye…or rather my ear…At one point, Richard Gere bangs his head and immediately takes the Lord’s name in vain.

I have asked many people about this scene and…no one remembers Richard Gere using God’s name as a cuss word. Yet, he did. Oh, they remember the movi…just not that sceen. Why would no one remember? We have become desensitized to everything around us.

One brother told me one time that his teenage son would spill milk and say, “J-sus!” Notice the quotes? I didn’t say it. Other times he might be playing a video game and he will hear him yell, “oh G-d!” or “G-d Dang it!”. He said, “Wow, that’s good, he is finally getting it.” Like it was a good thing. And, getting ‘what’ exactly?

A good thing? But then again I have heard this brother himself say things like, “J-sus Christ” or “G-d Da…it” or “H-ly Sh…”. The ironic thing is I have also heard him talk about other people at his work. He works in the service industry…and he claims that people all around him do it. But he is so close to it that he does not realize he does it every day.

In todays modern world, we have desensitized ourselves so much that we watch Rated R movies, we swear, we look at pornography, we throw back a few beers with the fellas on Friday night…then come Sunday Morning…we put our church clothes on…smile and say God Bless you…pretending like we live such righteous lives.

Psalm 101:3, “I will set no wicked thing before mine eyes: I hate the work of them that turn aside; it shall not cleave to me.”

The Old Testament also identifies several ways in which the third commandment can be violated. Many think it is only the most obvious…to blaspheme or curse the name of God, which we saw already the seriousness of this in…

Leviticus 24:16, “And he that blasphemeth the name of the Lord, he shall surely be put to death…when he blasphemeth the name of the Lord, shall be put to death.”

Put to death for using God’s bame as a cuss word! Yes, God is deadly serious.

But there’s more to this commandment than that. The third commandment also forbids empty or false oaths: “You shall not swear by my name falsely, and so profane the name of your God: I am the Lord” (Leviticus 19:12; cf. Hosea 10:4).

“And ye shall not swear by my name falsely, neither shalt thou profane the name of thy God: I am the Lord.”

“They have spoken words, swearing falsely in making a covenant: thus judgment springeth up as hemlock in the furrows of the field.”

When you make a declaration, swearing by God’s name, it must not be a false promise or one you do not intend to keep.

Why is taking the Lord’s name in vain so important as to make the top three of the big 10?

I have considered this…and first it so grieves my spirit when I hear it.

Remember in Exodus 3 where God speaks to Moses from the burning bush? Moses asks God, “The God of your fathers hath sent me unto you; and they shall say to me, What is his name? what shall I say unto them?”

God replies with those famous words: “I AM THAT I AM: and he said, Thus shalt thou say unto the children of Israel, I Am hath sent me unto you” (Exodus 3:13–14).

God names himself as the sovereign, self-existent one. In fact, the covenant name YHWH (Jehovah) is probably connected to the Hebrew verb “to be.” God is that He is. That is His name.

We see the same in Exodus 33 and 34. God shows Himself by speaking His name.

The irreverent use of God’s name is a very serious matter indeed. Everywhere in Scripture the name of the Lord is exalted in the highest possible terms.

“O Lord, our Lord, how excellent is thy name in all the earth! who hast set thy glory above the heavens.” (Psalm 8:1).

“Give unto the Lord the glory due unto his name; worship the Lord in the beauty of holiness.” (Psalm 29:2).

The first petition of the Lord’s Prayer is Hallowed be thy name.” (Mattew 6:9).

The apostles proclaimed that “Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.” (Acts 4:12) “That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth; And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.” (Philippians 2:10–11).

Psalm 34:3, “O magnify the Lord with me, and let us exalt his name together.”

God’s Word is constantly reminding us of the Holy importants of God’s divine name. A name above all names…a name to be exalted.

I think we tend to dismiss the third commandment because we feel it is insignificant. However, a closer look at this command, we see that it is listed among other serious infractions including idolatry, Sabbath breaking, disrespecting parents, killing, adultery, stealing, lying, coveting a neighbor’s spouse and/or possessions.

Perhaps it is not as insignificant as we might think. Words reveal our substance, the truth of who we are. They testify either of our devotion to God or of a serious spiritual problem. We know this because the command not to take the Lord’s name in vain follows instructions to love God wholeheartedly and not to worship idols (causing spiritual malaise).

I want you to consider James 3:11 for just a moment, “Doth a fountain send forth at the same place sweet water and bitter?”

Translation … does a Christian put forth both sweet water and bitter water? Should a Christian be swearing? Should a Christian be taking the Lord’s name in vain? What does it say for our love for God when His name is no more than a swear word on our lips?

James 1:26, “If any man among you seem to be religious, and bridleth not his tongue, but deceiveth his own heart, this man’s religion is vain.”

James is being as clear on the matter as he possibly can. If you cannot bridle your tongue (you swear, take the Lord’s name in vain, speak evil of others, etc.) then you are not saved!

By not using God’s name as a cuss word shows we love Jesus and we believe that His name is truly exalted above all.
Recognizing this as the Holy Ghost helps us overcome sin and live sanctified lives.

Though all of this what is our truest identity? What is our real purpose? Are we not Ambassadors of Heaven?

Finally, I will leave you with 2 Corinthians 2:14,

“Now thanks be unto God, which always causeth us to triumph in Christ, and maketh manifest the savour of his knowledge by us in every place.”

Christian, if this is you. If you have trouble with bridling your tongue…you are swearing or the God that you profess to love…whose name is nothing more than a swear word…if your blasphemy has pricked and convicted your heart…turn to Him…beg thy forgivness and ask Him to help you to never do that again.

If I can help in anyway, please let me know.

May God bless you and yours.

THE OPPOSITE BOYS & GIRLS MEANS IT’S DIFFERENT – You can trust just one Bible!

INSPIRED ~ INERRANT ~ PRESERVED

Do you truly think there is no difference in these bibles? I think most women would beg to differ. Bunch of Scripture twisting heretics. How many women truly would like to have a husband that dominates them…is your master?

And what does, “Lord it over you…” mean? I dunno, you got me.

The ESV is just the opposite (ummm…the opposite boys & girls means DIFFERENT)…Instead of her desire to her husband (KJB)…we have desire shall be CONTRARY TO her husband (ESV).

Only two things can be true. Either they are both wrong, although, other than desiring or not desiring your husband, I cannot think of a 3rd option…OR one of them is wrong.

The question then becomes WHICH ONE IS WRONG! Without a bunch of archeological evidence, etc. I can tell you that any bible that does not know who killed Goliath is a bible that cannot be trusted. See 1 Samuel 17:50, 2 Samuel 21:19 and 2 Chronicles 2:5 in both the ESV and the KJB.

Not only does the ESV get it wrong in 2 Samuel 21:19. It creates a double contradiction. I could list hundreds of such errors in the ESV and any/all of the Bibles printed after 1881. There exist no such error in the KJB. In fact, there isn’t a single error in the King James Bible.

Maybe ladies you would rather trust a bible that says you are not to desire your husband or maybe you should choose the ISV where your husband is commanded to DOMINATE you. But then the VOICE…that’s a good one…”but rather than a companion, He will be the dominant partner.

FRIENDS PLEASE WAKE UP! God Inspired His Word…and He preserved it…every Word…every jot and tittle…for you and I and it’s called the KING JAMES BIBLE!

COMPARE GENESIS 3:16

KJB:…and thy desire shall be TO THY husband, and he shall rule over thee.

ESV: “…Your desire shall be CONTRARY TO your husband, but he shall rule over you.”

ISV: “…since your TRUST (not desire?) is turning toward your husband, and he will DOMINATE you.”

TLB: “…your husband’s AFFECTIONS, and he shall be your MASTER.”

NET: “…You will want to CONTROL your husband, but he will DOMINATE you.”

TLV: “…Your desire will be toward your husband, yet HE MUST rule over you.”

VOICE: “…You will desire your husband; but rather than a companion, He will be the dominant partner.” (wow, let that sink in)

NWT (JWs bible): “…and your LONGING will be for your husband, and he will DOMINATE you.”

MSG: “…You’ll want to PLEASE your husband, but he’ll LORD IT over you.” (‘Lord it’ over you? What? Lol)

One more reason we can only trust the Bible.

SHOULD CHRISTIANS SWEAR?

By Kevin Airrington

When I lived in West You will know them by their fruit!Germany I was friends with a German man.

One day we were sitting around discussing languages. I asked him what the German words were for different English swear words. What else? 🙂 Ironically there was a German equivalent for every English word except one.

The F Word…Helmut tells me proudly with a hideous laugh, “we say it in English!”

So, what makes one word a swear word…and others not? We even have replacement, or our generic swear words that aren’t really swearing, only…yes, it is. We think by changing a few letters we are not actually saying the word in our mind…or somehow when we say frig that God doesn’t know what we mean? Wow, we smart we fool da crea’er of universe!

It really doesn’t matter who decided certain words we’re swear words or even that certain words are swear words. The fact is they are…and in any language, these are still cuss words.

And if not, like my friend Helmut, we will just pick a swear word in another language.

1 Thessalonians 5:22 in the time tested good il’ King James Bible, The Apostle Paul tells us to, “Abstain from all APPEARANCE of evil.”

Modern trash gives us the biggest, “well duh” moment, “Abstain from every form of evil.”. Well duh…of course we are to shun evil…but Paul actually took it a step further. He said to avoid the appearance of evil. The modern versions water down the Gospel and may be the very reason we are in this mess.

The Bible could not be clearer about sin…

Be in the Word

James 5:12 – “But above all things, my brethren, swear not…”

Ephesians 5:4 – “Neither filthiness, nor foolish talking, nor jesting, which are not convenient: but rather giving of thanks.”

Matthew 12:34-37, “…for out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaketh. ”

Proverbs 4:24 – “Put away from thee a froward mouth, and perverse lips put far from thee.”

Proverbs 8:13 – “The fear of the LORD [is] to hate evil: pride, and arrogancy, and the evil way, and the froward mouth, do I hate.”

Leviticus 19:12 – “And ye shall not swear by my name falsely, neither shalt thou profane the name of thy God: I [am] the LORD.

Ephesians 4:29 – “Let no corrupt communication proceed out of your mouth…”

So, now that I have shown you that your foul mouth is sinful. What are you going to do about it? Here is comes…”BLANK OFF!!! Don’t judge me.”

In your stammering and feigning innocence, now you are adding the sins of deception and deflection to Strong Language. I guess my mother was right, one sin does lead to another. And we shouldn’t use bad words.

Christians do not Swear!

When I hear a Christian swear I just cringe. In this society of if it feels good do it…we ignore Psalm 101:3 – “I will set no wicked thing before mine eyes: I hate the work of them that turn aside; it shall not cleave to me.”. As we do the entire Bible. And let me just bookend this for you. Colossians 3:2 – “Set your affection on things above, not on things on the earth.”

You see it’s cool these days to be a Christian who swears. It gives the curser an “I’m into Jesus, but I’m not legalistic” badge.

The problem is we are desensitized to swearing, public nudity, public sex…we are away from God. I said a moment ago that I cringe when I hear so called Christians swear. What’s worse is hearing someone take my Lord’s Name, a Name above all other names in vain. That’s right…MY LORD! Because if you do this…He is not your Lord. You and your OM- in your text! It used to hurt me…now it makes me angry.

Someone, I will not mention either parties name because I believe the perpetrator has repented. But someone called me and said, “Kevin, listen to this hateful message left on my machine.”. And they were quite noticeably upset —- shaky voice, crying, etc. I listened to about a two-minute message of an angry person…every other word profanity…and then they say said F you! And more insults, adjectives and swear words come out…and they ended with these words, in a calm. voice, almost sounded like a different person they say, “God bless you, I love you.”

ARE YOU KIDDING ME?

I’m not even going to comment further…we all know or should know.

The other day, someone asked me, “Kevin, the other day I hurt myself and a swear word just slipped out. Was that a sin?”

First of all the Bible declares that, “For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;” – Romans 3:23. And I may not swear, and the more you read your Bible, the more you pray, the closer you get to God, the more you declare war on sin and swearing…

Micah 3:8 – “But truly I am full of power by the spirit of the LORD, and of judgment, and of might, to declare unto Jacob his transgression, and to Israel his sin.”

… profanity will not leave your lips. Does that mean that I am sinless? No way…I struggle with my own sin….but not deliberately and I try not to sin. So, while they sinned when they swore, and I asked them, ” did it just come out or is swearing part of your vocabulary?”

They assured me that it just slipped…so, while sin…sin we can repent of and ask God to help us not to sin. In Psalm 119:11, the author, probably David in his Prayer for Help, he says, “Thy word have I hid in mine heart, that I might not sin against thee.”

READ HIS WORD…the more we read it the less we sin. It’s a fact my friend!

But until you declare and as the Hebrew writer… probably Paul declares, “Ye have not yet resisted unto blood, striving against sin.” – Hebrews 12:4

So, until we resist sin with our whole being and declare war against Satan and all of Hell…we will always struggle with sin.

Now, if you are a new convert or you just “slip” once in a while…then you are probably saved…but need to apply Hebrews 12:4 and Psalm 119:11 and we’ll actually…the whole Bible…until you do…you will never have VICTORY in your life.

However, and someone isn’t going to like this but I must be obedient…if your swearing is out of hand, part of your daily vocabulary and you make no effort to resist the devil…and as my mother used to say…one sin leads to another and I will bet that if swearing is part of your normal vocabulary…you have more sin. Probably a potato sack full of sin …and YOU ARE NOT SAVED! Meaning, and let me be clear…

Isaiah 59:1-5, 11-13 (read the whole chapter)

“Behold, the Lord’s hand is not shortened, that it cannot save; neither his ear heavy, that it cannot hear:

But your iniquities have separated between you and your God, and your sins have hidden his face from you, that he will not hear…

We roar all like bears, and mourn sore like doves: we look for judgment, but there is none; for salvation, but it is far off from us.

For our transgressions are multiplied before thee, and our sins testify against us: for our transgressions are with us; and as for our iniquities, we know them;

In transgressing and lying against the Lord, and departing away from our God, speaking oppression and revolt…”

Our sin…our deliberate sin separates us from God and if that is you then you are going to HELL…forever and ever. And listen, forever is a long time my friend.

Finally, we, mere mortal humans measure sin and classify it. Some sin or this sin…MY SIN is not that bad…but oh my goodness look at his sin…I’m not that bad.

God looks at sin. Period. Period. Yes, the double period is for emphasis. I heard Joe Biden do that and I thought it was cool. 🙂 So, to God swearing is just as bad as lying and sexual. Sin, although sexual sin is the ONLY SIN God tells us to flee or run from, but you see to God sexual sin is no worse than cussing. “Oh, come on.” You gasp! Don’t look at me, I didn’t write the Book.

Should a child rapist go to Hell? Sure…I think we would all agree on that. Should you go to Hell for swearing? God says, ABSOLUTELY! And don’t forget what my mother used to say

Romans 6:12,23 Gives a strong warning.

“Let not sin therefore reign in your mortal body, that ye should obey it in the lusts thereof…For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.”

But ends with encouraging words. My friend do not be angry with me. Stop sinning…stop cussing. IF YOU CUSS YOU DO NOT BELONG TO GOD.

“For when ye were the servants of sin, ye were free from righteousness.

What fruit had ye then in those things whereof ye are now ashamed? for the end of those things is death.

Romans 6  – “But now being made free from sin, and become servants to God, ye have your fruit unto holiness, and the end everlasting life.”

Proverbs 24:16

There, that’s good news…and incentive not to cuss. I hope as Paul says…you are ashamed. And I have just shined a big bright flashlight, you know one of those uber cool police flashlights, super bright with like 50 million LEDs.

If you say, “yup, that’s me and I am ashamed, ashamed for not abstaining from all APPEARANCE of EVIL. I am ashamed of my sin and I need the blood of Jesus to cleanse me and help me never to swear again. Acts 3:19… Repent and turn from your side no sin. May God bless you and yours.

PRAYER

Make an Excuse to PRAY

Today, my pastor, Pastor Dale Meador…took a break on our through the Bible series and preached a great sermon relevant to current events…marriage and the recent Supreme Court OPINION (5 to 4 —Thank you Chief Justice John G. Roberts Jr. and Justices Antonin Scalia, Clarence Thomas and Samuel A. Alito Jr. for your dissension) concerning gay marriage. As usual, Pastor Dale draws out not just a single one track point…but at the end of the sermon…you know that the sermon was for you and I am not even gay. smile emoticon

During the sermon I got to thinking about praying.

2 Chronicles 7:14 kept rattling around in my head.

“If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.”

Oh that one! smile emoticon Yes, and I hope that you have actually read that, studied it, pondered on it….meditated on it and just not heard it in church.

As Pastor Dale delivered his message. I thought…WOW! Where is the church? I mean, honestly…according to recent ABC Polls, Fox Polls, NBC Polls, etc…pick one…pick all…they all say that 80% of American’s claim to be a Christian…while 45% claim to be born again. I don’t believe these numbers…but I do believe there are 100s of thousands who are truly born again?

So, if that is the case, how does a woman like Madalyn Murray O’Hair, ONE woman…in 1963 get prayer removed from school? (Side note…ever notice that ALL the assassins are remembered by their full name, First, Middle Last? John Wilkes Booth! Lee Harvey Oswald! James Earl Ray! Charles Julius Guiteau! Leon Frank Czolgosz! Madalyn Murray O’Hair! Think about that just a moment!!! )

SEEK HIS FACE…WAKE UP AND PRAY!!!!

How? And let’s not even get into the repercussions of that landmark decision. Or…LET’S DO GET INTO IT

The very next year our President was assassinated! Child abuse up 2300% (2000), Unmarried couples up from 1963 to 725%. Pregnancies for UNWED 10 to 14 year olds up 553%…same group STDs for ages 10 to 14 year olds up 385%, violent crime up, drug use up 6000%…and this from a drug culture of the 1960s. These are just a small handful of social issues that have rose dramatically since 1963.

I don’t think these are all by accident.

It wasn’t until 2012 that Obama declared that same-sex couples should be able to marry, and it was only last year that he said he thought the Constitution provided such a right.

Another ripple from the 1963 decision? Or…will THIS decision take on a life of its own? Maybe both!

Like Pastor Dale said today…it’s tough facing those we love who are gay or support gay marriage. Because we love them, we don’t want to hurt them and we want to respect them. But the truth has to bleed through that rainbow. My own niece who I love so VERY MUCH…showed her support of the Supreme Court Decision by shrouding her Facebook avatar with a rainbow flag as did my grandson’s mother. People I love dearly. I hope that they know that…I hope that they know that and I hope that they understand that I also cannot ignore the Bible…I cannot ignore truth….I cannot ignore what happened on Calvary 2,000 years ago.

Pastor Dale was also careful to carve out that NONE of us escape sin. There is only ONE avenue of escape. JESUS!

PRAY…WAKE UP AND PRAY!

In the Garden of Gethsemane, Peter, James and John needed to remain awake and pray. Jesus rebuked them for sleeping and not praying. Is Jesus rebuking you for not praying?

Think about this…

If James would have prayed would this had saved his decapitation a few very short years later? If Simon Peter would have stayed awake and prayed would he had denied Christ three times in the palace of Caiaphas?

If you would have prayed…would you have, through prayer, made great change in this nation? If you would have prayed would you have brought about great change in your life and the lives of those that you love?

Where are these 100s of Thousands of BORN AGAIN CHRISTIANS when one man or one woman tears down the curtain of justice and attacks the very foundation of our Christian faith? We need strong men and women…if you profess Christ as your Lord and Savior…PROVE it. Get on your knees and fight! That means, stop sitting on your backside. We need help over here…plug up these holes…we need prayer warriors on the front line…there is a war going on and we are losing battles…because God’s people refuse to pray. They are asleep in the Garden of Gethsemane! They are asleep in church!!!

A few years ago I wrote a book called, “Get on your knees and fight like a man.” In the book I related a story told to me by a nurse in Seattle. He said, “I left the grocery store the other day…and in the parking lot next to his car he saw (what he presumed was a Muslim man) on his face praying…He had a prayer rug and everything.” He told me he went to his car and cry out to God…what is wrong with me? That man doesn’t even know you…he prays to a false God…I know you…I KNOW YOU LORD and You know me. Why can’t I pray like that?

Yeah. Why? Why can’t we all pray like that? If God’s people would HUMBLE THEMSELVES AND PRAY…I will forgive their sins and heal their land!

My God!…My God!…do we believe that or not?

Nah…God was just playing. Yeah…when God was inspiring Ezra to write 2 Chronicles…He told him to squeeze out 36 chapters. Ezra had trouble with this so Nehemiah helped him to add some words to fill up space. Right? That’s what God does is He just adds things in His Word to fill up space? Wrong…every WORD is there deliberately…that mean’s on purpose…His purpose!

Like & share if you will commit to HUMBLING YOURSELF AND PRAYING…make an excuse to pray right now. What’s your excuse?

When I was a young disciple at Medford Praise Chapel here in Medford…we use to laugh at the new Christians when they prayed. They would literally thank the Lord for the wind…the rain…the sunshine…the 100 degree weather…20 minutes later thank Him for the hotdogs and Mexican food and we would eat.

But the truth is we can learn a lot from new converts. WHAT’S YOUR EXCUSE TO PRAY? EPHESIANS 6:10

” Finally, my brethren, be STRONG in the LORD, and in the POWER of his MIGHT”

NLT EXPOSED

New Living Translation EXPOSED!

Robert J. Stewart

The New Living Translation (NLT) is straight from Hell.  On their official website, NLT advertises with the slogan, “Accuracy you can trust.”  Unfortunately, the NLT is not very accurate.  The fact that the word “begotten” has been wrongfully removed from John 3:16 should be enough reason for every Christian to trash their NLT.

In fact, I would rip it into shreds first to ensure that no one else is poisoned by it.  To say that Jesus is God’s “only son” is a lie!  In fact, God has many sons according to Scriptures such as 1st John 3:1, “Behold, what manner of love the Father hath bestowed upon us, that we should be called the sons of God.”

Biblically, God has MANY sons, but Jesus is the only BEGOTTEN Son.  So you see, ANY bible which removes the word “begotten” from John 3:16 becomes heresy.  This includes most modern bibles such as the perverted New International Version (NIV), The Book For Teens (TBFT), the New Living Translation (NLT), the New Believer’s Bible (NBB), the Living Bible (LB), and many more.  It is tragic!

Let’s face it, the corrupters who are publishing demonic bibles are all out to make a fast buck, filthy lucre!  In order to reach the largest market base possible, they trim and water down the Scriptures as much as tolerable.  This is evil.  God hates Bible corruption –Deuteronomy 4:2, “Ye shall not add unto the word which I command you, neither shall ye diminish ought from it, that ye may keep the commandments of the LORD your God which I command you.”  Well, the NLT butchers have diminished God’s Word by subtracting “begotten” from John 3:16.

The NLT was published in 1996 by Tyndale Publishers.  Few Christians realize that there have been over 200 new Bible translations published just within the last 30 years.  It’s blatantly obvious that this evil is the result of much greed and love for money (1st Timothy 6:10).  The NLT is based upon Kenneth N. Taylor’s corrupted Living Bible (1971).  His perverted Living Bible sold over 40 million copies in North America alone.  Taylor died in June of 2005 at age 88.  It is wicked to corrupt the Word of God (2nd Peter 3:16).  Now comes the damnable New Living translation.  Although the NLT preface claims that 87 scholars were involved in the word of translation, I have to seriously wonder if any of them really loved Jesus Christ.  1st Peter 2:7 reads, “Unto you therefore which believe he is precious…”

How could any professed Christian who loves Jesus be involved in a bible translation that perverts the Word of God.  The fact that dozens of different ecumenical groups were involved in the work of translation speaks volumes as to the Devil’s attempt to water down the Word of God.  Increasingly, modern bible translations must be more politically correct in order to sell at high volumes.  So as the world plunges further into the depths of wickedness and apostasy, new translations must follow along if they are to sell.  Take a look at The Book For Teens bible, which is based upon the New Living Translation, not one mention is made of the blood of Jesus in the section on “Salvation through Jesus Christ” (Page A47).  The blood of Jesus is a taboo subject nowadays amongst many pseudo-Christian groups, thanks to heretics like John MacArthur.

As further proof of corruption, Billy Graham endorses the NLT on the front cover jacket.  Billy Graham is Mr. ecumenical himself, who has done more to unite apostate protestants with the Great Whore of Catholicism than anyone else.  2nd Corinthians 6:14-17 commands us to separate from the unbelieving world, NOT yoke up with them.  Ephesians 5:11 tells us to reprove the works of darkness, NOT fellowship with them.

Billy graham is on the Devil’s side, a friend of the world, and the enemy of God (James 4:4).  The Catholic Church is straight out of the pits of Hell and it’s about time that ALL the preachers around the world start proclaiming it.  Billions of souls are headed for destruction because of compromised and cowardly pastors and preachers who are afraid to offend anyone.  Speak the Truth!  Offend them!  Their souls are at stake!

Corrupted Scriptures in the New Living Translation

  • Deuteronomy – “sodomite” changed to “temple prostitute”
  • 1 Kings 14:24 – “sodomites” replaced with “shrine prostitutes”
  • 1 Kings 15:12 – “sodomites” replaced with “shrine prostitutes”
  • 1 Kings 22:46 – “sodomites” replaced with “shrine prostitutes”
  • 2 Kings 23:7 – “sodomites” replaced with “shrine prostitutes”
  • Matthew 17:21 – entire verse omitted
  • Matthew 18:11 – entire verse omitted
  • Matthew 19:9 – half of the verse is omitted
  • Matthew 23:14 – entire verse omitted
  • Mark 6:11 – half of the verse is omitted
  • Mark 7:16 – entire verse omitted
  • Mark 9:44, 46 – entire verses omitted
  • Mark 11:26 – entire verse omitted

  • Luke 23:17 – entire verse omitted
  • John 1:10 – says God created everything “through” Jesus instead of “by” Jesus as the KJB teaches
  • John 1:41 – The NLT leaves out the phrase, “Which is by interpretation, a stone.”  Hence, the critical distinction between Peter as “the stone” (Petros), and Jesus as “The Rock” (Petra) is obscured.  This was no doubt deliberate to pleases Catholics who falsely teach that Peter is the rock upon which the church is built.  The Bible states in no uncertain terms, “For other foundation can no man lay than that is laid, which is Jesus Christ” (1st Corinthians 3:11).
  • John 3:16 – the all important word “begotten” is omitted, thus denying the deity of Christ

  • Romans 16:24 – entire verse omitted
  • Philippians 2:6 -removes the word “equal,” thus denying Christ’s deity
  • Colossians 1:16 – says God created everything “through” Jesus instead of “by” Jesus as the KJB teaches
  • Colossians 2:9 – completely removes the “Godhead”
  • 1 Timothy 3:16 – “God” is omitted, says “Christ appeared in the flesh, thus denying the deity of Christ
  • 1 Timothy 6:5 – “from such withdraw thyself” is omitted
  • Hebrews 1:3 – the all-important words “by himself” are omitted
  • 1 Peter 4:1 – “for us” is omitted
  • 1 Peter 4:14 – half of the verse is omitted
  • 1 John 3:16 -completely removes “the love of God”
  • 1 John 4:3 – the all-important words “Christ is come in the flesh” are omitted 1 John 5:7-8 — Trinitarian clause omitted
  • 1 John 5:7 – half of the verse is omitted, thus denying the Godhead
  • 1 John 5:13 – half of the verse is omitted
  • Revelation 1:11 – first half of the verse is omitted
  • Revelation 5:14 – “him that liveth forever and ever” is omitted

NLT perverts the Godhead! 

1st John 5:7 is a vital Scripture that EVERY Christian should know.  This Scripture clearly proclaims that God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Ghost are ONE.  But, the NLT says otherwise…

KJB – “For there are three that bear record in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost: and these three are one.”

NLT – “So we have these three witnesses.”

What blasphemy!  Many Christians have bought into the lie that 1st John 5:7 wasn’t in the originals –IT WAS!  It depends on which originals you’re talking about.  The Textus Receptus (or received text) from which our reliable King James Bible comes DOES contain 1st John 5:7.

1st John 5:7 in the NLT greatly contradicts John 10:30

“I and my Father are one.” -John 10:30  KJB

It also contradicts Luke 3:22

“And the Holy Ghost descended in a bodily shape like a dove upon him, and a voice came from heaven, which said, Thou art my beloved Son; in thee I am well pleased.”

The NLT Bible-corrupters even removed the Godhead from Romans 1:20

KJB – “For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse:”

NLT – “From the time the world was created, people have seen the earth and sky and all that God made. They can clearly see his invisible qualities–his eternal power and divine nature. So they have no excuse whatsoever for not knowing God.

One of the most popular attacks that unbelievers launch against Christians is to say that the word “trinity” is not even found in the Bible.  The best defense is to show them the multiple Scriptures in the Word of God which teach about the GODHEAD.  Tragically, the word “Godhead” isn’t even mentioned in the NLT.  What?  Yes, that is correct…some “accurate” translation huh?  This is why I confidently say that the New Living Translation is straight from Hell.  Here’s Acts 17:29 compared…

KJB – “Forasmuch then as we are the offspring of God, we ought not to think that the Godhead is like unto gold, or silver, or stone, graven by art and man’s device.”

NLT – “And since this is true, we shouldn’t think of God as an idol designed by craftsmen from gold or silver or stone.”

Many cults (such as Islamic Muslims and Jehovah Witnesses) acknowledge the existence of a god, but deny the Godhead.  It is tragic that so many believers are supporting these modern versions that maliciously attack the Godhead and Jesus’ deity.  Look what they’ve done to Colossians 2:9

KJB – “For in him dwelleth all the fulness of the Godhead bodily.

NLT – “For in Christ the fullness of God lives in a human body.”

I noticed a tiny asterisk mark (*) next to Colossians 2:9 in the NLT.  I looked to the bottom to see what the footnote said… “Greek in him dwells all the fullness of the Godhead bodily.”  Do you see what is happening here?  To make everybody happy, the NLT Bible-corrupters completely removed “Godhead” to appease the liberals, but then they’ve also placed the truth in a little footnote in an attempt to appease conservative protestants.  Why in the world would they not place the literal Greek translation in Colossians 2:9, why would they put the correct Greek translation in a tiny footnote at the bottom of the page?  Do you know what happens in the making of a new bible?  It’s kind of like the bargaining table at contract time between the union and company management.

All the different religious denominations are invited to the bargaining table and a meeting is held to decide what COMPROMISES must be made to make the “new” bible acceptable to their particular denomination. This is all done in an attempt to reach the largest market base possible. By the time the new corrupted bible is finished, without fail, the Godhead (trinity) and the deity of Jesus Christ are greatly diminished. This is why I love the old King James Bible, it proudly proclaims the Godhead and the deity of our Precious Lord Jesus Christ.

NLT perverts Christ’s Deity! 

One of the most important verses in the Bible is John 3:16.  As mentioned earlier, the NLT perverts this verse by removing the word “begotten,” thus saying that God only has one son.   But 1st John 3:1 in the KJB reads, “Behold, what manner of love the Father hath bestowed upon us, that we should be called the sons of God: therefore the world knoweth us not, because it knew him not.”  Clearly, God has many sons, but Jesus is the only BEGOTTEN Son of God, which makes Jesus God.

KJB – “ “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.” -John 3:16

NLT – “For God so loved the world that he gave he gave his only son, so that everyone who believes in him will not perish but have eternal life.” -John 3:16

The NLT teaches heresy!

“For ye are all the children of God by faith in Christ Jesus.” -Galatians 3:26  KJB

The NLT also corrupts 1st Timothy 3:16

KJB – “…God was manifest in the flesh…”

TBFT – “…Christ appeared in the flesh…”

Jesus claimed to be Almighty God in Revelation 1:8.  For anyone to diminish 1st Timothy 3:16 to a mere “Christ appeared in the flesh” is ridiculous.  Any idiot knows that Jesus appeared in the flesh!  But the KJB declares that GOD was manifest (or revealed) in the fleshly body of Jesus Christ.  It angers many people when you promote the deity of Christ, thus the reason why ALL modern bibles attack Jesus’ deity.

Again, the NLT perverts Philippians 2:5, 6

KJB – “Who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God.”

NLT – “Though he was God, he did not demand and cling to his rights as God.”

The NLT cleverly corrupted Philippians 2:6 by removing the word “equal.”  In so doing, they have lowered Jesus to the God of the Jehovah Witnesses.  JW’s teach that Jesus is “a god,” but not Almighty God, which is a lie of the Devil.  By saying that Jesus is “equal” with God, the KJB is clearly declaring Christ as Almighty God.

As further proof of the NLT attack on Jesus’ deity, look at Colossians 1:16

KJB – “For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth…”

NLT – “Christ is the one through whom God created everything in heaven and earth.”

Blasphemy! The KJB declares that Jesus created all things, but the NLT wrongfully teaches that God created all things through Jesus. This is exactly what the Jehovah Witnesses cult teaches. JW’s deny Christ’s deity (as do most cults). JW’s teach that God created everything THROUGH Jesus. On the contrary, the KJB proclaims in Colossians 1:16 that Jesus Christ created all things Himself. It is wicked heresy to say that Jesus did not create the universe by His own Word. John 1:10 reads, “He was in the world, and the world was made by him, and the world knew him not.” Sadly, the NLT perverts this Scripture also, claiming that God created the universe “through” Jesus instead of “by” Jesus as the Word of God teaches in the KJB. The JW’s would be proud of the NLT. Oh listen friend, you need to burn your NLT because it dishonors and dethrones the Lord Jesus Christ.

NLT perverts Acts 12:4!

The NLT perverts Acts 12:4 by changing “Easter” to “Passover.” Numbers 28:16,17 clearly teaches that the seven days of unleavened bread FOLLOWED the day of Passover. Acts 12:2 in the KJB tells us that the days of unleavened bread were already being observed, which means that the day of Passover was OVER! So when the NIV and the NLT say that Herod was waiting for the Passover in Acts 12:5, they are lying! The KJB wisely uses the proper word “Easter” because the Passover had already occurred.
NLT completely removes the word “sodomite” from the Bible

God describes homosexuals with the word “sodomite” for a reason. Jude 1:7 reads, “Even as Sodom and Gomorrha, and the cities about them in like manner, giving themselves over to fornication, and going after strange flesh, are set forth for an example, suffering the vengeance of eternal fire.” The word “sodomite” comes from the city of Sodom, a city so vile and wicked that God decided to utterly destroy it by reigning down fire and brimstone from Heaven. To call homosexuality, “sodomy,” implies the judgment of God upon the wicked sin of homosexuality.

The modern definition of sodomy is NOT the Biblical definition. Sodomy in the Bible is defined as sex between two men, or two women (homosexuality and lesbianism). We read of the woeful homosexuality problem in Sodom in Genesis 19:4, 5. American society has plunged horribly into wickedness and apostasy, even to the extent of corrupting the Bible for the sake of being politically correct to make money. Now there’s even a homosexual bible.

Get a King James Bible!

The 1611 King James Bible is trustworthy. We don’t rewrite Shakespeare because we can’t understand the archaic English; rather, we study it in the beauty in which it was written. To retranslate Shakespeare into modern English would be a literary tragedy. This it is a woeful tragedy what modern Bible corrupters have done to God’s Word. In the King James Bible we have the preserved and inspired Word of God. The Bible is to be studied, not read like a comic book or magazine. Too many believers have bought into the lie that we need a new Bible, and another, and another… where will it end? …The Satanic Bible?

HAPPY MOTHER’S DAY

TO ALL OF THE MOTHER’s OUT THERE.

Image may contain: 6 people, including Kimberly Smith-Nicastro, people smilingMothers aren’t special because they gave birth to us. Mothers aren’t special because they are beautiful (although they are).

Mothers are special because their love is unconditional. They wipe our tears and bring discipline when necessary. Mother’s are special because they are the glue that holds the family together. They are the one who is always in your corner.

I miss my mama every single day. On March 3rd, 2012, She took her last breath on earth and her very next breath was in the presence of Jesus. It was also her 72nd birthday. I would give up anything for 5 more minutes with my mama.

I miss her hugs, I miss her wisdom and I miss her smile. I also miss the way she used to call me her S – U – N,(spelling it out) because she said that I was, “the sunshine of her life”…and it drove my sister’s absolutely crazy.

I am a mama’s boy…but I was not a mama’s boy until after I became a man – after I came to know Jesus.

Image may contain: 1 person, textMy Grandma Rose Hemphill was very special to me too. I named all three of my daughters after her: Michaela Smith, Jordyn Rosebud Airrington and Leila Rose Airrington.

All three with the middle name of Rose! Someday…they will be mothers too. I love each of my daughters so very much and you are a blessing to me.

I want to honor my mother and my grandmother this day. And listen, not all mothers-in-law are bad. I happen to think that my wife had a great mother-in-law.

May God bless all of you mother’s and grandmother’s out there. You deserve this day…. every day should be mother’s day!

EVIDENCE OF THE RESURRECTION OF JESUS

“…because I live, you will live also.” – John 14:19

Christianity is about faith – faith in Jesus Christ who rose from the dead. But have you realized there is also historical documentation of Jesus’ resurrection? Six different books offer documentation of Jesus’ nine live appearances afte lol lr His resurrection:

– He appeared to Mary Magdalene and other women the morning of His resurrection.

– He appeared to Peter.

– He appeared to two men on the road to Emmaus.

– He appeared to the disciples as a whole (except for Thomas, who wasn’t there).

– He appeared to the disciples with Thomas, and Thomas believed.

– He appeared to seven disciples at the Sea of Galilee and enjoyed a fish fry.

– He appeared to over 500 people at once.

– He appeared one final time to His disciples before He ascended to heaven.

That is a lot of evidence that He rose from the dead! I believe it and I surely hope you do, too!
