Why millions of professing Christians will go to Hell.

Why would millions of professing Christians go to hell?

Because millions of professing Christians have never heard the true gospel

They think salvation is in a simple prayer asking Jesus into your heart and asking for forgiveness of your sin. (God also demands that you change and become a new creature. You must live a righteous and holy life .)

God has commanded us to be perfect even as He is perfect

In fact, the only way you can get to heaven is if your perfect

So how is anyone going to make it heaven?

God sent Jesus to take your place so that you could become the righteousness that is in Him

2 Corinthians 5:21 “For He made Him who knew no sin to be sin for us, that we might become the righteousness of God in Him.”

Jesus took your place and God turned His back on Him

Psalm 22:1-2 “My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me? why art thou so far from helping me, and from the words of my roaring? O my God, I cry in the day time, but thou hearest not; and in the night season, and am not silent.”

Then God killed Jesus with all the hatred and wrath that should have been poured out on you

Isaiah 53:10 “Yet it pleased the LORD to bruise him; he hath put him to grief: when thou shalt make his soul an offering for sin, he shall see his seed, he shall prolong his days, and the pleasure of the LORD shall prosper in his hand.”

Once your born again you are perfect in Christ and will no longer live in sin, but in order for you to recognize that He lives inside you, you must walk in His footsteps. You will not be perfect in the body, only in spirit, but you will no longer live in the flesh

Romans 6:3-5 “Or do you not know that as many of us as were baptized into Christ Jesus were baptized into His death? Therefore we were buried with Him through baptism into death, that just as Christ was raised from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life. For if we have been united together in the likeness of His death, certainly we also shall be in the likeness of His resurrection.”

1 John 3:5-6 “And you know that He was manifested to take away our sins, and in Him there is no sin. Whoever abides in Him does not sin. Whoever sins has neither seen Him nor known Him.”

Romans 6:6-7 “Knowing this, that our old man was crucified with Him, that the body of sin might be done away with, that we should no longer be slaves of sin. For he who has died has been freed from sin.”

If the old man still lives than Christ is not in you

If this is true than hardly anyone is going to make it to heaven

Jesus said in Matthew 7:13-14 Enter by the narrow gate; for wide is the gate and broad is the way that leads to destruction, and there are many who go in by it. Because narrow is the gate and difficult is the way which leads to life, and there are few who find it

Proverbs 14:12 “There is a way which seems right unto a man, but leads unto death.”

So there is a way that you think is going to get you to heaven, but it will end you up in hell

Many people are lost and yet think they are saved

Philippians 3:18-19 “For many walk, of whom I have told you often, and now tell you even weeping, that they are the enemies of the cross of Christ: whose end is destruction, whose god is their belly, and whose glory is in their shame—who set their mind on earthly things.”

These are people who say they are Christian. They go to church, they read the bible, they pray and try their best to be a good person, but they are missing one thing. They do not have Jesus

Even though they profess to know Jesus, they do not produce any evidence of being born again

What does that mean?

Jesus said in Matthew 10:33 “Whoever denies me before others, I also will deny them before my Father in heaven.”

People think, well if someone asked me if I believed in Jesus, I would say yes

That’s not what Jesus is talking about. Look at what the bible says in Titus

Titus 1:15-16 To the pure all things are pure, but to those who are defiled and unbelieving nothing is pure; but even their mind and conscience are defiled. They profess to know God, but in works they deny Him, being abominable, disobedient, and disqualified for every good work.

Your works are fruits of either righeous works or unrighteous works and those who produce fruits of unrighteousness are not Christain

James 3:11-12 “Does a spring send forth fresh water and bitter from the same opening? Can a fig tree, my brethren, bear olives, or a grapevine bear figs? Thus no spring yields both salt water and fresh.”

Jesus said in Matthew 7:18-19 A good tree cannot produce bad fruit, nor can a bad tree produce good fruit. Every tree that does not produce good fruit is cut down, and cast into the fire

People say, “Well, I know in my heart that I am saved.” Proverbs 28:26 says, he that trusts in his own heart is a fool. Why? Because the heart is deceitful.

Jeremiah 17:9 “The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it?”

But what about going to church and reading the bible? What about praying everynight and trying my best to be a good person?

Well, according to the bible there is no one good enough to go to heaven

Isaiah 64:6 But we are all as an unclean thing, and all our righteousnesses are as filthy rags; and we all do fade as a leaf; and our iniquities, like the wind, have taken us away

Job 15:14-16 “What is man, that he could be pure? And he who is born of a woman, that he could be righteous? If God puts no trust in His saints, And the heavens are not pure in His sight, How much less man, who is abominable and filthy, Who drinks iniquity like water!”

Romans 3:10-12 “As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one: There is none that understandeth, there is none that seeketh after God. They are all gone out of the way, they are together become unprofitable; there is none that doeth good, no, not one.”

Jesus said in John 3:6-7 “That which is born of the flesh is flesh, and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit. Do not marvel that I said to you, ‘You must be born again.’

Oh I go baptized in my church and the pastor said I was born again

Your pastor says? What about God? does His opinion have any meaning to you? are you putting your trust in what your pastor tells you?

Psalms 118:8 “It is better to trust in the LORD than to put confidence in man.”

Let me tell you this, if what your pastor tells you is contradicing to the Word of God, then your pastors is wrong

Jesus said in John 1:6 “I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.”

You must be born again into the righteousness of Christ. Once you are born agian you will live like Christ. You will love righteousness and hate evil.

Paul said in 2 Corinthians 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.”

New music, new movies, new cloths, new activities, new attitude, a whole new style of life that proves that you’ve been saved. All the unrighteousness in your life is replaced with righteousness. You no longer desire the sinful things of this world, but you will follow after Christ and love His commands.

This is why John the apostle said in 1 John 2:6 “He who says he abides in Him ought himself also to walk just as He walked.”

Paul said in Galatians 2:20 I have been crucified with Christ; it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me

How do you know if Christ is in you?

Paul said in 2 Corinthians 13:5 “Examine yourselves as to whether you are in the faith. Test yourselves. Do you not know yourselves, that Jesus Christ is in you?—unless indeed you are disqualified.”

Look at the friut you produce. As Jesus said, a good tree cannot produce bad fruit. A person who goes out and gets drunk every weekend or even every other weekend, is not a Christian

1 John 1:6 “If we say that we have fellowship with him, and walk in darkness, we lie, and do not the truth.”

1 John 2:3-5 “Now by this we know that we have come to know Him, if we keep His commandments. He who says, “I have come to know Him,” and does not keep His commandments, is a liar, and the truth is not in him. But whoever keeps His word, truly the love of God is perfected in him. By this we know that we are in Him.”

If your not living like Christ, then you can have no assurance that He is in you

You must repent and believe the gospel and once you truly humble yourself to God, He will change you

It doesn’t matter how sinful you are or how many times you’ve rejected Jesus, He still loves you and wants to give you eternal life. Humble yourself and give your life to Christ and you will be saved. Turn away from all your sin and live for Jesus
The bible does not say to ask for forgiveness for your sin, it says to confess that your a sinner

1 John 1:9 “But if we confess our sins, He will forgive our sins because we can trust God to do what is right. He will cleanse us from all the wrong we have done.”

The bible does not say to ask Jesus into your heart. You must lay down your life to follow Him

Luke 9:23 “And he said to them all, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross daily, and follow me.”

Why is this so important? Because this life is your only chance.

Hebrews 9:27 “And as it is appointed for men to die once, but after this the judgment.”

After you die it’s over. What you did with your life will determine where you will spend eternity. You must put more thought into what you believe because if your wrong it will cost you your chance to go to heaven

Jesus said few will enter heaven

I love you and just want to make sure your one of them

America bought the lies

America (and even many Christian Americans) bought the lie that the Democratic Party; now to enter the White House in January; is going to help ordinary people , improve the lot of working people, and aid the destitute. ( Some call this Pro-life. ) This article shows the methods of the Democratic party is not Compassionate at all…..Read on…

You call this compassion?

Take heed that ye do not your alms before men, to be seen of them: otherwise ye have no reward of your Father which is in heaven.
Therefore when thou doest thine alms, do not sound a trumpet before thee, as the hypocrites do in the synagogues and in the streets, that they may have glory of men. Verily I say unto you, They have their reward.

But when thou doest alms, let not thy left hand know what thy right hand doeth:

That thine alms may be in secret: and thy Father which seeth in secret himself shall reward thee openly.

Matthew 6: 1-4

Today we’ll find out if Americans have really bought the lie that Barack Obama and his Democratic Party compatriots actually care about helping ordinary people, improving the lot of working people, aiding the destitute.

I don’t believe it for a minute. And, even if I did believe they were sincere about these goals, I recognize their methods – forcibly taking wealth and property from some and redistributing it to others of their choice – would never actually achieve their stated goals of reducing poverty.

But let’s focus today on motives.

Some people suggest you can’t really read someone’s heart. Some people think you can’t judge people’s actions or inactions. Some people seem to believe compassion is measured by how high you are willing to impose taxes on your neighbor.

I disagree.

(Column continues below)

I think virtue is measured by what you sacrifice willingly to help your neighbor, your family, your friends, your country.

By that standard, Barack Obama, Joe Biden and the Democratic Party get a failing grade.

In his own book, “Dreams From My Father,” Obama writes affectionately about his “Auntie Zeituni.”

Barack Obama is a millionaire today – on the verge of winning the presidency.

What has he done about checking on the welfare of his beloved Aunt Zeituni Onyango, one of the children of Barack Obama’s grandfather?

Apparently nothing. Barack Obama is too busy planning ways to change the country and save the planet to reach out a helping hand to an elderly relative in obvious need. It took the London Times to discover she lives in a disabled-access apartment in a rundown public housing complex in South Boston.

Aunt Zeituni joins other Obama relatives in varying states of destitution.

His “Uncle Omar,” also described in his autobiography, was recently beaten by armed robbers with a sawed-off rifle while working in a corner shop in the Dorchester area of Boston. He was later evicted from his one-bedroom apartment for failing to pay $2,324.20 in rent, according to the Boston Housing Court.

Then there’s the slightly better-known case of George Hussein Onyango, Obama’s half-brother in Kenya who, we learned months ago, was living on $1 a month.

What Has Barack Obama done to help any of these close relatives?

Again, apparently nothing.

That’s one of the real measures of compassion. And he has been found severely lacking.

There are other measures, too.

In 2004, the Obamas reported $207,647 in adjusted gross income and contributed a grand total of $2,500 to charity – just a hair over 1 percent of their income.

How about his running mate?

In 2004, the Bidens reported they had $234,271 in adjusted gross income and made contributions of $380.

This is what these men give freely of their own resources. They push for higher taxes for their neighbors, but are unwilling, or, as Biden might say, too unpatriotic, to fork over their own money to people in need.

With that kind of shocking record, it is amazing to me that so many Americans still believe their phony talk about compassion and duty and “the Sermon on the Mount.”

Jesus wasn’t talking about collective obligations in the Sermon on the Mount. He wasn’t talking about national obligations in the Sermon on the Mount. He wasn’t talking about community obligations in the Sermon on the Mount. He was talking about individual, personal commitments to the needy in the Sermon on the Mount.

You can’t be in obedience to Jesus’ commandments in the Sermon on the Mount because of your tax obligation. You can only be in obedience to Jesus’ commandments in the Sermon on the Mount on the basis of what you choose to do willingly as an individual.

Once again, Obama, Biden and the Democrats are like the Pharisees who made a show of piety but who betrayed the very spirit of the law.

Today, we’ll find out if that kind of public show still fools people.

Ronald Weinland under Demonic Delusion. Part 2

Another post that proves the claims of Ronald Weinland should be dismissed absolutely. The article below is written by Paul Cohen at The Path of Truth website.

Ronald Weinland – Son of Armstrong

The Fruit Does Not Fall Far from the Tree

Ronald Weinland has announced that he is God’s final prophet before the end of this age, and one of the two witnesses of Revelation 11 (his wife is the other). He has staked his claim to this high calling and office on the accuracy of the predictions he makes in the Name of God. One is that there will be a nuclear detonation in a major American city on or before July 16, 2008.

If his predictions do not come to pass, here is what Ronald says should happen:

If we come to the point in time where what I’ve said doesn’t come to pass, the reality is that I’m just a false prophet. That’s the bottom line… The reality is if it doesn’t happen, then you’re just false…I’ll acknowledge my error, my wrong, if I’m wrong.

In fact, some of his predictions, such as the total collapse of the US dollar by mid April of this year, have already not happened, and there has been no retraction forthcoming from Weinland, only excuses that spiritualize and explain away his errors. However, here is what God says about Ron’s explanations:

“But the prophet who takes it on himself to say words in My Name which I have not given him orders to say, or who says anything in the name of other gods, will come to his death. And if you say in your hearts, How are we to be certain that the word does not come from the Lord? When a prophet makes a statement in the Name of the Lord, if what he says does not take place and his words do not come true, then his word is not the Word of the Lord: the words of the prophet were said in the pride of his heart, and you are to have no fear of him” (Deuteronomy 18:20-22 BBE).

It is, of course, consistent with the nature of a false prophet to never admit that he is false. It is for true men of God to shine the Light on the false so that others may see. Jesus Christ is the Light in Whom we live and Who has sent us to expose the darkness.

Ron has chronicled a sensational account of his predictions, God’s Final Witness, which includes a horrendous loss of life that is to now occur in these last days. Let us say that there is no doubt these are the last days, with great tribulation coming upon the world such as has never been before. Since bloodshed, wars and disasters of all sorts have happened before, at many times, there is another element at work here, one that is not strictly physical. What could be more devastating than the flood in the days of Noah? No, what is different is that, in these times, God is sending forth a spiritual fire to cleanse both Heaven and earth. (This fire, though unseen, is real, just like God Himself is real, though unseen.)

Ronald’s vision and predictions are carnal. He produces lies because he walks in the pride of his corrupt heart, according to the Word of God just quoted. No doubt most people pay no attention to his words, dismissing him as another fruitcake. He is a small man with a smaller following. But it will not do to be cynical and derisive. Rather, you should walk in humility and learn to distinguish error by knowing the Truth. It does you no good to dismiss false prophets while you may equally dismiss the true.

It is no surprise that Ronald Weinland is a false prophet, because the fruit does not fall far from the tree. Ron is the product of Herbert W. Armstrong. Armstrong made many predictions that did not come to pass. He was a false prophet, though he had many true doctrines. You must know that the Kingdom of God is not found in the meat and drink of doctrines, but in righteousness, peace, and joy in the Holy Spirit.

Armstrong’s fruits came from the arrogance of his carnal knowledge, which he has passed along to his followers. They, having drunk their fill of his spirit of superiority, could not abide one another and allegedly split into five hundred splinter groups after his death and the break-up of his life’s work, The Worldwide Church of God.

Weinland’s doctrinal errors are not identical to Armstrong’s; he has branched out into some of his own. What is the same is that he acts on the compulsion to be “the man,” and the winner in a game where almost everyone else loses. Here we shall kill two foul birds (I speak of presumptuous flesh) with one stone.

The flesh can never vaunt itself enough. Weinland, as an example, not only lifts himself up as the only prophet of the Lord since the time of the apostles, but he also pulls down the mother of prophets and kings. He accuses Sarah, Abraham’s wife, of fomenting envy, distrust, competition, pride, jealousy, and bitterness in the Arab people through her relationship with Hagar, mother of Ishmael. He says that the current enmity that Arab Muslims have towards Jews and the West is Sarah’s fault. In other words, if Weinland were a true prophet (which he is not), he would be accusing his own mother of sin, and condemning himself as a child of the flesh. No doubt he is a child of the flesh, for here is what the Scriptures say of Sarah and of us, her children:

“But brothers, we, like Isaac, are children of promise. But then even as he born according to flesh persecuted him born according to the Spirit, so it is also now. But what does the Scripture say? ‘Cast out the slave-woman and her son; for in no way shall the son of the slave-woman inherit with the son of the free woman’” (Galatians 4:28-30 MKJV).

Peter, by the Holy Spirit, encourages daughters of faith, saying of Sarah:

“For so once indeed the holy women hoping in God adorned themselves, being in subjection to their own husbands; as Sarah obeyed Abraham, calling him lord; whose children you became, doing good and fearing no terror” (1 Peter 3:5-6 MKJV).

Weinland seeks to placate Muslims by saying that it is not their fault that they follow a megalomaniac blasphemer. He tells them that they can blame the West, which loves them only for their oil. Instead of identifying the horrible lies being fed to them from the Koran, Weinland gives them liberty to play the victim card, thus justifying their suicide bombings, murders, and other sins. We understand why Weinland does this. How can he find fault with his brother, Muhammad, who also sought to be the last prophet? In doing so he would be openly condemning himself. So he blames the children of Sarah. This is the way Satan operates. He always sides with the children of the flesh.

Weinland says that since the time of Isaac and Ishmael, “neither lineage dealt with each other with genuine care and concern; instead, animosity and deep-rooted attitudes were passed down, through both, from generation to generation…All have failed to show the way of peace which comes from God.

Israel is the only nation on earth that is known to return land to those who have aggressively sought to exterminate them. Israel has offered more rights and respect to the Muslims than the Muslims often offer to other Muslims in their own countries. Is Israel perfect? Of course not. But to lump Israel’s behavior with genocidal wars and suicidal bombings is unjust and mad. No reasonable and knowledgeable person, let alone prophet of God, would propose such an equivalency.

Here is a prediction Weinland makes that is demonstrably false. He says of what he categorizes as the last kingdom of men on earth, before God’s Kingdom consumes them all: “God has revealed that [Europe]… will become the strongest power the earth has ever known.

The image that Nebuchadnezzar saw in his dream, which God showed Daniel represented all the empires of the world, described the last kingdom as an inherently weak mixture of iron and clay. Is that not the case of our Western democracies? The United States, leading the way, cannot even subdue a small nation like Iraq. Indeed, the last days are here, and this prediction of Europe becoming super powerful is sheer nonsense.

Even now as I write, Europe is cowed into submission by a Muslim minority living within its borders. How can they fight those without when they are ruled by their enemies from within?

Weinland says that only he knows the meaning of the seven seals in the Book of Revelation:

It has to be revealed through God’s servants, and most of it was reserved to be revealed at this end-time through God’s end-time prophet – me.

But here is how John introduces his book:

“The Revelation of Jesus Christ, which God gave Him to show unto His servants, even the things which must shortly come to pass: and He sent and signified it by His angel unto His servant John; who bare witness of the Word of God, and of the testimony of Jesus Christ, even of all things that he saw. Blessed is he that reads, and they that hear the words of the prophecy, and keep the things that are written therein: for the time is at hand” (Revelation 1:1-3 ASV).

Somebody is a liar, either the apostle John or Ronald Weinland. John says the things he wrote were to show God’s servants what would shortly happen, and this involved things they could observe and keep. He was not specifying anything as off limits – kept in store for a future audience. The time was ready even then. “Whosoever will, let him take the water of life freely.”

Ron, on the other hand, says that only he understands these things and, unless you believe him, you are lost. That means there could have been no blessing for all who came before Ron, because how can there be a blessing when you cannot comprehend the prophecy and find direction in its words? You need Ron, and if you lived before Ron, too bad. If Ron is correct, John is plainly wrong to promise the reader a blessing. However, if John is wrong and what he says is a lie, then Ron also must be wrong, because he is basing his interpretation on words that cannot be trusted.

If the apostle John is in error, he could not be speaking from God. But if what John says is true, and we know that it is, then Ron is wrong, because he contradicts John’s revelation from the very outset. Clearly John’s prophecy has been for all believers since the words were recorded, and that is because the things in the book of Revelation are primarily describing happenings in the spiritual realm.

Any person that comes along and tries to tell you everything that will happen on the world stage, detail by detail, based on the Book of Revelation and Biblical prophecy is – and listen carefully because I am choosing my words carefully – full of shit. They are feeding you the end product of the digestion of the Word through their own imagination. Show me one prophet or servant of God who ever spent his time providing such information. You will not because you cannot.

What did the Son of God do? Did He explain all manner of prophecies about Himself before they happened, or after? He met certain disciples on the road to Emmaus after His resurrection and, after asking them what was happening and hearing them describe His empty grave with perplexity, He said:

“O you foolish, and slow of heart to believe in all that the prophets have spoken! Ought not the Christ to have suffered these things and to enter into His glory? And beginning at Moses and all the Prophets, He expounded to them in all the Scriptures the things concerning Himself” (Luke 24:25-27 EMTV).

Could He not have told them beforehand? Why didn’t anyone in Israel have accurate predictions regarding these prophecies before Christ entered His ministry? According to Weinland, and so many others, someone should have been able to penetrate these mysteries and know what would happen like a Hollywood director working from a script. But the Lord does not work that way. He causes us to walk by faith, not by sight, and we see the truth of His words after they are fulfilled.

Did not Mary keep all the things that the angel Gabriel spoke to her about her newborn son in her heart, pondering them? Yet she did not understand them until many years later, after Christ was crucified and risen from the dead. She went through a time when she did not accept His calling, and even questioned His sanity. Her heart was indeed pierced, as was foretold by the angel. God was not expecting her to figure it out. She had to live it out. Life is His intended end, not knowledge.

What about Jacob and his son Joseph? Why did Jacob, a man of God, not understand Joseph’s prophetic dream, though he kept the matter in mind? He did not see; his sons tricked him into thinking Joseph was dead. The matter was not known until after Joseph revealed himself to his brethren as the ruler of Egypt, the prophecy fulfilled. That is precisely the way God intended it to be. No man knows the nature of the fulfillment of prophecy until it is fulfilled.

That is the way it always works. The way of Weinland, Armstrong and company, and other groups like the Seventh Day Adventists, is the way of men, who crave the certainty of carnal knowledge and despise the spiritual substance of faith.

Weinland, however, is not satisfied with thinking himself superior in knowledge to all others today. The flesh is never sated. The universe must positively revolve around it. Not only must it win; others must lose. Ron predicts death and punishment for those scattered Armstrong followers who do not fall into line with him:

As in the story of Elijah and the ministers of Baal, the words of Elijah were upheld with great power, and God revealed through whom He was working. The same will be true in the things that will happen to members of the leadership of the scattered Church who refuse to repent and hear God’s true servant…every minister who was scattered, who fails to repent early on and return to God (with me, as God’s minister, teaching them) will die during the final three and one-half years of great tribulation. They will not be in the first resurrection, and they will not see the millennial reign of God’s Kingdom on earth.

What happened to you, Ron, that you are so bitter about being rejected by your “Church of God” brethren? “Take that, you unappreciative heretics! You would not listen to me, the man of God!” Is that the Spirit of Christ in you speaking? No, it is the spirit of man and of Satan, his sponsor. It is the man of sin in you who wages vendetta warfare on his perceived enemies. It is this same spirit that indulges the doctrine of eternal torment against those who do not agree with those religious of the “right” persuasion.

Weinland says the death of Church members is at his choice, from God. Ron, we are members of Christ’s Body, and not only do we reject your words, but we reject you as God’s last time prophet and one of the two witnesses. Put us on your hit list, and let’s see what happens. You say that the signs of God’s servants in these last days will not come through miraculous healing, but by calling down plagues on mankind. To you, the two witnesses are for destruction, not healing. So destroy us then, if you are a witness, the spokesman and prophet of God. We certainly deserve it, according to you.

But what did Jesus say to the “sons of thunder” when they proposed to destroy? Whom shall we believe, Jesus Christ, or Ronald Weinland?

“And He sent messengers before His face. And they went and entered into a village of the Samaritans to make ready for Him. And they did not receive Him, because His face was going toward Jerusalem. And seeing, His disciples James and John said, Lord, do You desire that we command fire to come down from Heaven and consume them, even as Elijah did? But He turned and rebuked them and said, You do not know of what spirit you are. For the Son of Man has not come to destroy men’s lives, but to save. And they went to another village” (Luke 9:52-56 MKJV)

It is evident that Ronald interprets Scripture by his carnal mind and hateful heart.

The Worldwide Church of God and its many splinters are not God’s Church or, more accurately, His Body. It is all simply more in the long line of breakaway movements of men’s works of the flesh, going back in time to the Catholic Church and beyond, all part of the whore of Proverbs 7 – Mystery, Babylon the Great.

People of the former and present Worldwide Church of God, you are destroying yourselves. You need to come out of your love affair with the Tree of Knowledge that leads you into the perpetual reorganizations of a dead and rotting carcass. You are forever spinning your wheels, ever learning but never arriving at knowledge of the Truth, Jesus Christ. Religion and doctrine with end time teachings are not the answer; the cross of Jesus Christ, Whom we preach, is. Come, hear, and learn of us, for we are meek and lowly. The Lord is here.

Ron says that God has not given “His people all knowledge about Himself and His Son.” Presumably Ron will teach you this, but we know that all knowledge of God is in the Son. If you have the Son, you will have that knowledge:

“But of Him you are in Christ Jesus, Who of God is made to us wisdom and righteousness and sanctification and redemption; so that, according as it is written, ‘He who glories, let him glory in the Lord’” (1 Corinthians 1:30-31 MKJV).

And:

“For who has known the mind of the Lord, that he may instruct Him? But we have the mind of Christ” (1 Corinthians 2:16 MKJV).

The problem for those that do not know God is not that the Lord’s hand is shortened, or that His mind is disconnected from His Body. The lack comes from not being part of His Body or not being in submission to Him, just as Ron himself is not. He is doing his own thing, which, in delusion, he calls “God,” and demands others worship what he has conceived and presented to the world.

But those who do not know the Father do not have the Son. This is not because they do not have Ron’s doctrine explained to them. When they are turned to Christ, taking up the cross and dying to this world, then they will know God, guaranteed:

“I am writing to you, fathers, because you have come to know Him Who is from the beginning. I am writing to you, young men, because you have overcome the evil one. I am writing to you, little children, because you have come to know the Father” (1 John 2:13 EMTV).

John also said:

“But you have an anointing from the Holy One, and you know all things” (1 John 2:20 MKJV)

And: “But the anointing which you received from Him abides in you, and you do not need anyone to teach you. But as His anointing teaches you concerning all things, and is true and no lie, and as He has taught you, abide in Him” (1 John 2:27 MKJV).

Today religion is everywhere and the cross of Christ nowhere. That is what the Lord told Victor in 1976 (see Prophecy – “I Am Hurting”). It is all sham profession, with devastating effects, everyone perishing for lack of the knowledge of God. The Lord brought Victor into His covenant by the cross so that others could also enter life by the laying down of their lives, too.

There is no other way. This is the sword of fire through which one must pass to have access to the Tree of Life. Death is required to have Life. On the other hand, access to the Tree of Knowledge is free; as with Weinland. One may keep his or her life while consuming the false promise of life through knowledge. Having one’s eyes opened to be like God is not the same as being joined to Him. It leads to death. Death by the cross, however, leads to life everlasting.

Another darkened, false teaching:

For centuries, the Catholic Church has been led into deception through Satan’s power, but he will exercise even greater direct control at this final end-time.

The Catholic Church was never led into deception. To say such a thing implies it was once in the Truth, which is not the case. The Catholic Church by name and nature has been the bride of Satan from the beginning. There has been no light in her at any time, for “what fellowship does light have with darkness? And what agreement does Christ have with Belial?” (2 Corinthians 6:14-15)

Therefore, how can she be led into greater deception? How can slaves of sin come under greater control? This is sheer nonsense and fear mongering, giving glory to Satan as though he wields any power outside of the will of God. God is the One calling the shots, and the One to acknowledge as doing all things:

“I form the light, and create darkness: I make peace, and create evil: I the LORD do all these things” (Isaiah 45:7 KJV).

Weinland also teaches some common diabolical doctrines, such as soul sleep (“The dead are unconscious.”), annihilation (“The wicked are annihilated.”), and that Lucifer is a fallen angel who led a revolt in Heaven, rather than a man in history, which the Bible shows him to be (“Satan was once a good being.”). He teaches that a change of nature into Christ comes by human willpower. He says it is up to man to choose salvation, which is a ubiquitous false gospel that disregards the entire testimony of Scripture that God, not man, chooses (“Accept Jesus as your personal Saviour and you will be saved.”).

Weinland predicts great wars and carnage wiping out huge tracts of mankind. Why will these billions die? He writes: “Simply put, mankind does not want God’s way. People must learn what their selfish ways produce.” Yet how can people learn if they are sold out to sin, killed, and eventually annihilated, which is what Ron says will happen if they do not choose to do right after they are resurrected? With this latter fate, their lives and deaths are in vain. This god of Weinland is a vicious and sore loser, and he is decidedly unglorified by his works. And Ron is like his god.

Like Armstrong, Weinland advocates salvation by works, a prime example being the keeping of the physical Feasts of the Law of Moses (Passover, Pentecost and Tabernacles). Those who advocate these have never known or kept them in the Spirit, the only way possible today. (See Victor Hafichuk’s Testimony and The Feast-Keeping that Is Sin.) According to Weinland, the Jews do not know God because they do not keep the Passover on the correct date. But the Jews, along with Weinland, do not know God because they have not received and eaten of the Passover Lamb. Externals like dates and physical ordinances have nothing to do with His salvation.

Another of Armstrong’s false teachings is that Britain and the US are primarily constituted by the lost tribes of Israel. This is a fallacy that fosters pride, trying to gain spiritual credibility in the flesh. That can never be. Ellen Kavanaugh provides very pointed Scriptural evidence that destroys this myth:

http://www.lightofmashiach.org/losttribes.html

One place where Armstrong was right, however, was that he “fully believed that the Yahweh of the Old Testament writings was Jesus Christ, who would later divest Himself of His Godly power in order to be born human of His mother, Mary.” Weinland disagrees here, believing he has transcended his predecessor. He teaches that Jesus Christ is not God the Father Who existed from eternity. This leads him into making stupid statements that directly contradict the Scriptures, such as:

Jesus Christ was not the ETERNAL (Yahweh) of the Old Testament…Jesus Christ was dead when He was in the tomb. He had no life in Him. He was not eternal! God, His Father, had to raise Him from the dead.

But Jesus said to the Jews:

“Destroy this temple and in three days I will raise it up” (John 2:19 MKJV).

And the Scripture says of Christ:

“In Him was life, and the life was the light of men. And the light shines in the darkness, and the darkness did not overtake it” (John 1:4-5 MKJV).

It was not possible for death to overtake Christ. Yes, God raised Him up, for He is God, made manifest at “the appearing of our Lord Jesus Christ….the blessed and only Potentate, the King of kings and Lord of lords, Who alone has immortality, dwelling in light which cannot be approached…” (1 Timothy 6:14-16 MKJV).

God plainly says He is our one and only God and Savior, with no other God formed besides Him:

“You are My witnesses, says the LORD [Yahweh], and My servant whom I have chosen: that you may know and believe Me, and understand that I am He: before Me there was no God formed, neither shall there be after Me. I, even I, am the LORD [Yahweh]; and beside Me there is no Saviour” (Isaiah 43:10-11 KJV).

“Thus says the LORD [Yahweh] the King of Israel, and His Redeemer the LORD of hosts; I am the first, and I am the last; and beside Me there is no God” (Isaiah 44:6 KJV).

God and the Redeemer are One, the first and last, the only God.

Read The Most Glorious of Truths and Jesus Christ, Almighty God.

Weinland is wrong and will die in his presumptuousness. His goal is to vaunt himself by reconstituting the Worldwide Church of God in his own image. He asks if anyone has ever seen such claims as his precise timelines and predictions: “This is the evidence (witness, testimony) of the true God of Abraham!

Apparently Ron has forgotten his spiritual father’s predictions that fell to the ground. And is making predictions so impressive that we should think we are seeing God before our eyes? Isn’t he counting his chickens before they hatch? His predictions, like his father’s, are not coming to pass. That is because both of them are false prophets.

One thing Weinland is right about, however: In these days God is revealing His will and purpose to all mankind. He is revealing Himself. That is what we and The Path of Truth are all about.

John Hagee’s Insightful Devotions to read about ELECTION time

Filed under: Christianity, Elections, John Hagee, politics, Religon — Tags: , , , , — jasmine71 @ 9:09 pm

Here are a few insightful devotions by a godly preacher, John Hagee.

——————————————————————————–

It’s Your Choice
Summary:
Deuteronomy 30:19—
“I call heaven and earth as witnesses today against you, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing; therefore choose life, that both you and your descendants may live; that you may love the LORD your God, that you may obey His voice, and that you may cling to Him, for He is your life and the length of your days;

It is election time! A time that can be full of worry and confusion as the media bombards us with confusing and troubling information. The resulting discouragement can breed negativity and grumbling that can thwart sound decision-making when it comes our time to vote. Casting your vote for the wrong candidate or not voting at all are the tragic outcomes of not properly exerting your “power to choose.”

On Super Tuesday 2008, Janet Folger of Faith 2 Action had some good advice: “Fast for 2 hours from the polls, the pundits and the papers. God is more powerful. Take Him at His Word. Turn off the TV and get on your knees.”

She is right, God’s standards are clear and we have a choice to do what is right not only in the case of voting according to God’s Word, but also in our day-to-day living. It is simple…we have the power to choose, so choose life in all that you do!

Are you destroying your life with your attitude? Are you capable, intelligent qualified, but your attitude is so negative you are destroying those you live with, work with, and love? Have you have turned your home into a battleground filled with sarcasm, criticism, blame, cutting remarks, bitterness, and rejection?

I urge you to take charge of your mind, your marriage, your future, your destiny, and your soul. Refuse to grumble and criticize—duct tape your mouth if need be. Refuse to retreat from life and run from success. It is time to stomp your way to a new beginning in Christ. Let your mind begin to feast on the Word of God that produces positive change. “Finally, brethren, whatever things are true, whatever things are noble, whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report, if there is any virtue and if there is anything praiseworthy—meditate on these things: (Phil. 4:8).

Instead of saying, “I can’t,” start saying, “Whatever is born of God overcomes the world” (1John 5:4). Instead of saying, “If—“ start saying, “I will by God’s grace.” Instead of saying “It’s impossible,” start saying, “Nothing is impossible to those who believe.” Refuse to “be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of ‘God” (Rom. 12:2). Tell yourself that there is no victory without a fight; there is no sunrise without a night; there is no purchase without a cost; and there is no crown without a cross. You are a child of God…a member of royalty…and God does not manufacture junk or sponsor flops. The victory is yours through Christ, but the choice is up to you. (The Life Plan Study Bible, p. 386)

Matthew 6:9-10
Summary: “In this manner, therefore, pray: Our Father which art in heaven hallowed be Your name. Your kingdom come. Your will be done on earth as it is in heaven.”
“Let’s focus on the tenth verse. ‘Your kingdom come, your will be done on earth as it is in heaven.’ In heaven, God’s will is the only priority. In heaven the will of God is instantly obeyed by angels and archangels who do His bidding instantly, immediately, and without question. Jesus taught us that prayer, because He was saying that it is preeminent in the mind of God that His will be the top priority in our life.

Thy will be done on earth as it is done in heaven, that there is no question that the will of God will be done; that it will be done in the church; that it will be done in your home. That it will be done your schools; that it will be done in your marriages; that the word of God is the law of your life. When you do the will of God, then you can do the work of God, and you can do the work of God by the power of God. But the bible says: ‘If you abide in Me and My words abide in you, then you can ask what you will and anything will be done.’

But if there’s not that abiding process, you can forget about all of the power and the attributes of God. When Jesus was teaching on the vine and the branches, He said: ‘Except you abide in Me, you can do nothing.’ If there’s not an abiding relationship as evidenced by the maintenance of the will of God, then you don’t have a relationship. Jesus said: “You are My disciples if you do whatsoever I ask you.’

The will of God is not some illusion. It was very clearly etched in the word of God. How is God going to control the earth? How will God control America? When the people in the church start doing the will of God. There’s are 60 million Americans who are Bible-believing Christians; there’s no way that this country should be in its current condition with that many Christians. If we went into the voting booth and 60 million of us voted one way, it would be impossible for us to have corrupt politicians in office.

We’re not doing the will of God and it is time that we start.” -Pastor John C. Hagee

Ronald Weinland under Demonic Delusion – Biblical Proof.

Ronald Weinland said earlier in the year , that if by July 2008, America was not nuked, he would not only declare himself a false prophet but also insane. Obviously, America was not nuked in July; which by Ronald’s own words makes him an insane false prophet……not to mention a liar.. He has just made more excuses for his failed prophecies. His followers need to wake up and see they are following a fruitcake. …Please read the following article by James Lloyd of Christian Media Research. What he has to say tells the other side of the story . Most importantly, what James Lloyd has to say is very biblical….So keep scrolling down. May it enlighten the misled to the Truth.

God’s Final Witness Is Ronald Weinland?

The latest figure to step forth touting himself to be one of the Two Witnesses is a bizarre false prophet named Ronald Weinland, has added his name to the infamous list of delusional religionists in the strange days that have found us.

Another partaker of the the tainted legacy of Herbert W Armstrong’s Worldwide Church Of God, Weinland is aggressively following in the WWCOG’s tried and true approach that says Christians will believe almost anything — especially if they can get it for free. Like the cult of 7th Day Adventism and their ubiquitous free publications Sign Of The Times and National Sunday Law, Ron Weinland pays organizations to give away his book 2008 God’s Final Witness.

Obviously, the New Testament tells us the Gospel itself is to be free (Jesus never included book publishing as a definition of the actual Gospel), but apparently the old admonition that says “you get what you pay for” is still intact, for it seems that most of the “free” goodies Christians can get are so laced with theological poison they’re not exactly a Spiritual bargain. So it is with Weinland’s piece of published trash (did I mention it was “free?”)

At least I didn’t have to waste a great deal of my free time to find out his doctrine, as Weinland hadn’t finished even his first chapter before he came right out and flatly stated his supposed identity:

“I am to announce, through God’s direct revelation, that I am one of those two witnesses.” (page 16, 2008 God’s Final Witness)

Throughout the book, Ron Weinland repeatedly tells us he is God’s Final Prophet, and any who reject that statement will die in the tribulation to come:

“The primary reason God reserved the fullness of this knowledge, until now, is to reveal who is His end-time prophet….as a consequence, they will also recognize that I am who I say I am — God’s end-time prophet and the spokeman of the two end-time witnesses.” (page 204)

“I am God’s end-time prophet, the one sent by the Almighty God to all mankind at this end-time.” (page 173)

There are a dozen places in Weinland’s book where he claims the world will be judged based upon their response to his macabre message. Conversely, Jesus Christ clearly stated that those who continually trumpet their own standing are not of Him:

“He that speaketh of himself seeketh his own glory: but he that seeketh his glory that sent him, the same is true, and no unrighteousness is in him.” (John 7:18)

Since Weinland calims to be able to receive “direct revelation” from God, it’s curious to find the book filled with all sorts of faulty and unscriptural assertions — but perhaps his hotline to God wasn’t working well when he wrote his epic. After all, even the Internet has bad days.

Most of this pretender’s output draws on long taught precepts of Armstrong’s Church of God (see the essay The House That Herbert Built on this site), but mercifully, Ron does have a couple of new wrinkles in the racist garbage he regurgitates from Armstrong. Of course, the Germans are still the bad guys (the “Assyrians” as taught by most of the Armstrongists), and the British are still the good guys (the “lost tribes” of Israel nonsense), but my personal favorite is how, even after the Millennial reign of Christ, everyone gets a second lifespan of 100 years in which to prove they’re worthy.

Most Christian groups recognize Revelation tells of how all the wicked people who have died without Christ throughout history are to be resurrected for the judgment. Indeed, the central characteristic of this prophetic sequence is how all the dead who rejected Christ, were judged and cast into the lake of fire:

“And I saw a great white throne,…And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God…And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire.” (Revelation 20:11,12,15)

Ron Weinland simply ignores this plain statement and twists the text completely as he claims that all the wicked dead don’t end up in the lake of fire at all. He says everyone gets another chance to live in what he calls “God’s world.” Writing about the 1,000 year reign of Christ on Earth as described in Revelation, He states

“But the rest of the dead [the rest of mankind who had lived and died throughout the first 6,000 years of man’s time on earth] lived not again until the thousand years were finished [they will be resurrected to physical life once more, but they will then be living in God’s world once the 1,000 year reign of Jesus Christ has ended].” (page 140)

This means we’ll see Hitler, Genghis Khan, Joseph Stalin, Attila the Hun, and even Charles Manson, in “God’s World.” However, since they’ve been dead for so long, Ron tells us they will behave better in their second time around.

Unfortunately, if they don’t behave better, none of them will die young, because in Ronald Weinland’s world, everyone gets exactly 100 years to prove they’ve learned their lesson:

All who have ever lived and died will be resurrected to physical life once more. There will no longer be reproduction of human life, but there will be a one hundred year period of time for man to live and be judged by God’s way of life.” (page 169)

Actually, I may need that second hundred years, because since I’ve spoken against “God’s Final Witness,” Ron will likely see to it that I miss that Millennial thing. Hopefully, when I get my guaranteed hundred years, I won’t have to live near Vlad The Impaler.

I probably should worry about writing such an inflammatory piece about God’s Final Witness, because Ron Weinland is using his “witness” status to rain revenge on some other Armstrong followers who have apparently rubbed him the wrong way. As he offers his version of Revelation’s mysterious passage concerning “seven thunders,” he says he gets to choose the 5th thunder (and hints he may be directing the 6th and 7th) — and he has chosen to punish those in “God’s Church” who haven’t received him:

“This phase of the Fifth Thunder is one of my own choosing, which God has granted me….The method of this one last great chastening…the method for revealing through whom God is working will not be done through the manifestation of miraculous healings performed by ministers. Specifically regarding His two end-time witnesses, it will be by the power given to them for destruction and plagues, not healing!” (pages 101,104).

Weinland then recounts a recent event in which seven people died, and four were wounded, in a shooting spree in one of God’s “scattered” Armstrongist churches that had failed to follow in the true path. Thus, although I’ve mocked this clown because he’s so far off the Scriptural mark with false doctrine, we see the zeal of “believers” like Ron Weinland is not to be taken lightly. Truly, as Jesus said, “ye shall know them by their fruits” (Matthew 7:16).

On a recent bad fruit day in 2005, a religious zealot shot and killed 7 people, including the pastor, his son, and 5 church members before shooting himself. Weinland attributes this heinous deed to the removal of God’s protection from this sect, and claims that God is humbling the Armstrong churches from which he sprang. He further states that other leaders of these Armstrongist sects will be killed until they receive Ron Weinland as God’s Final Prophet!

Weinland then retells the story of how the prophets of Baal died horribly for crossing a prophet of the LORD, and says that he has asked God to execute those who have rejected his ministry in a similar fashion:

“I have also made a petition to the ETERNAL God of Abraham. My petitition is that this first phase of the Fifth Thunder be fulfilled exactly as it is written here.” (page 107)

He even tells us who is next on his hit list:

“The most notable deaths early on, which are yet to come to pass, will be the two remaining television presenters in the Living Church Of God. The sound of this thunder will be intensified by the early deaths of the leaders of the Philadelphia Church of God, the Restored Church of God and the Church of the Great God.” (page 108)

So much for Christ’s admonition to pray for one’s enemies, but this monster has nothing to do with Christ. To put it another way, this guy is completely out of his mind — but it’s self evident some other entity has chosen to inhabit the mind of Ron Weinland.

In the face of his obvious willingness to shed the blood of anyone who disagrees with his murderous megalomania, it seems a bit mundane to detail more of his false doctrine. However, I will make the effort since the Apostle Paul instructed believers to

“Mark them which cause divisions and offences contrary to the doctrine which ye have have learned; and avoid them.” (Romans 16:17)

Indeed, when Jesus Christ tells us “a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit” (Matthew 3:10), we would do well to recognize the tree is the group that generated all of this evil — and that tree is Herbert W Armstrong’s Church Of God. Thus, the doctrinal elements of this wicked tree should be considered in the light of the Word of God.

Following in the heretical doctrines of Jehovah’s Witnesses and early 7th Day Adventism, Weinland (and the “scattered” COG churches) teaches the doctrine of the trinity is a Catholic invention, and is a “perverted, sick, and damnable doctrine” (page 193.

Although a Roman Catholic council formally declared trinitarian doctrine in 325 AD, about 250 years before that, the Apostle John wrote

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

Indeed, in years of researching the subject, I’ve written a trilogy of books in which I determined the only three books written in the Old Testament after Israel’s exile functioned as a prophetic introduction to Israel concerning the LORD’s triune nature. The primary goal in these three Scriptural accounts was the standing of the believers, and the building of the temple — a subject anticipating the Spiritual temple of the New Testament Christian.

The book of Esther’s great king Ahasuerus, the central character of the entire story, represents the Father, whereas Nehemiah, as the one who actually builds the temple represents the Son. The Holy Spirit is seen in the 3rd book of Ezra, as the priest who sanctifies the temple. It’s difficult to see how the Catholics managed to write three Old Testament books 500 years before the first Catholic was born!

Weinland also subscribes to the doctrine of Soul Sleep, or annihilationism (once again, something Armstrong got from the cult of Adventism and Jehovah’s Witnesses). This is the view that says when you’re dead, your really dead, and your soul or Spirit does not continue until that second life heresy he’s manufactured.

Although there are many Scriptures which refute this, the most commonly cited verse is Jesus telling the dying thief on the cross

“Verily I say unto you, today shalt thou be with me in paradise.” (Luke 23:43)

Weinland says that only 144,000 from this small American sect are raised from the dead at the return of Christ (still more Adventist/JW heresy), but the Bible plainly shows there are millions who will be with Him in eternity:

“And they sung a new song, saying, Thou are worthy to take the book, and to open the seals thereof: for thou wast slain, and hast redeemed us to God by thy blood out of every kindred, and tongue, and people, and nation

“After this I beheld, and, lo, a great multitude, which no man could number, of all nations, and kindreds, and people, and tongues, stood before the throne, and before the Lamb, clothed with white robes, and palms in their hands….” (Revelation 5:9,7:9)

Weinland follows the apostacy of British-Israelism which emphasizes the white European Anglo-Saxons as supposed descendants of the physically dispersed Israelite tribes. This spiritual malignancy is closely related to the “chosen people” myth that God holds certain racial groups (such as Jews and Anglo-Saxons) as heirs of prophetic promises based upon race. This blasphemy (also taught by the Rapture Cult) ignores the New Testament imperative that your identity in Christ is purely in the realm of the Spirit:

For ye are all the children of God by faith in Christ Jesus. And if ye be Christ’s, then are ye Abraham’s seed, and heirs according to the promise. For in Jesus Christ neither circumcision [Israelite family lineage] availeth anything, nor uncircumcision [Gentile family lineage]; but faith which worketh by love” (Galatians 3:26,29,5:6)

Although he dances around the subject a bit, Weinland actually teaches the 144,000 are going to become “elohim” — the Hebrew word that is rendered God in our English Bible. Claiming these special believers will become “the God-Kind,” he states that

“Elohim is the name of the God Family.” (page 206)

This is an ancient heresy, but since he has removed the divinity of Jesus, and redefined the Holy Spirit as a spiritual power without deity, there’s plenty of room in the godhead for us:

“Herbert W Armstrong, was given understanding….that God’s Family is not a closed trinity, but instead, it can grow into the billions.” (page 206)

When you move into the realm of the “truth” put forth by this liar, he claims you will “become” God. Referencing the believer who allows God and His Son to dwell within them, he writes:

“This spiritual creation continues in spiritual growth until the time it can be born (of spirit) into the Kingdom of God, into the Family of God, becoming Elohim.” (page 228)

“The 144,000 are referred to as the firstfruits of God’s Family, since they will be the first from among the families of mankind to be resurrected and become God (Elohim)” (page 232)

Most people who have actually read their Bibles recognize this was exactly the temptation offered by the serpent to Eve in the Garden, if she would only eat the forbidden fruit:

“For God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil.” (Genesis 3:5)

The danger posed by false prophets such as Ronald Weinland is not related to prophecies which fail, it is related to predictions which are fulfilled. The fact is, just about every prophecy teacher on the planet is stating that tribulational events are upon us.

This means that because we do live in the generation which will see all of the tribulational events described in Bible prophecy fulfilled, when these things come to pass, many will follow deceivers like Ronald Weinland, simply because he declared such things. Conversely, it doesn’t take a prophet to see famine or world economic chaos coming because the mechanisms are plainly visible to those who are knowledgeable in monetary systems and agriculture!

Worse yet, most believers have been erroneously taught a false prophet is one who misses a prediction, when the Scriptures actually state the opposite:

“If there arise among you a prophet, or a dreamer of dreams, and giveth thee a sign or a wonder, And the sign or the wonder come to pass, whereof he spake unto thee saying Let us go after other gods, which thou hast not known, and let us serve them; Thou shalt not hearken unto the words of that prophet, or that dreamer of dreams…. (Deuteronomy 13:1-3)

It’s crucial we see this passage tells us the prophet who pitches “other gods” is a false prophet; and since Jesus Christ is God, anyone who presents a version of Jesus outside of the Scriptural portrait is teaching about another god. The Apostle Paul made the connection when he said

“for if he that cometh preacheth another Jesus, whom we have not preached [or] if any man preach any other gospel unto you than that ye have received, le him be accursed.” (II Corinthians 11:4,Galatians 1:9)

The bottom line is Ronald Weinland, and the “Church of God” that spawned his demonic book, are deceivers of the first magnitude. In this regard, we would all do well to realize that if you find yourself standing at the throne of God and cast into the Lake of Fire for believing the words in books of this nature, you won’t be able to tell God “But the book was free, so I thought it came from you.”
