Brothers and sisters, the tribulations of human life are often without question, infinite and vast. A plethora of boundless and diverse circumstances that often times press us to the very core of our being.
Yet, with each fiery trial there comes with it lessons, ones that encompass nurturing, value, and growth. A tutoring of sorts, to later be used to fulfill our life’s purpose. Each burden, sorrow, and storm comes with it a gift yet to be seen. An unopened package that contains such magnitude, that it is impossible to fathom its wealth and glory.
However, due to our human imperfections, and often times false teachings, many of us have missed a bus of blessings. Becoming prone to self-harm, self-loathing, and a feeling that we don’t exactly fit in.
We live year after fanning the old flames of past experiences and hardships. Living as slaves to an old life that no longer exsists. We never quite learn how to forgive. So rather than rising up from the trials of life. We shrink down into a bottomless pit. A place filled with depression, worry, sickness, and, sadness.
However, I have good news for you. I know a way out. Due to the goodness, grace, and mercy of Jesus Christ.
Look at me! I made it out with flying colors, only due to the Glory of Jesus Christ, and so can you.
Now, let’s take a look at what the Bible says.
Romans 5:3-5 “More than that, we rejoice in our sufferings knowing that suffering produces endurance, and endurance produces character, and character produces hope, and hope does not put us to shame. Because God’s love has been poured into our hearts through the Holy Spirit who has been given to us.
How about James 1:12.
“Blessed is the man who remains steadfast under trial, for when he has stood the test he will receive the crown of life, which God has promised to those who love Him.”
What a beautiful, yet perplexing, promise of God. The Word of Jesus Christ.
So, what exactly is the word of Christ saying? Is He trying to tell us that He allows our heartache for some type of future gain and glory? Is He saying that each and every hill we scale has purpose?
That as we claw our way out of the pitfalls of life we are getting stronger? Is He saying that bleeding nail beds from hanging on is a good thing?
Is that what God is saying?
Well folks, I am here to tell you, yes, that is exactly what He is saying. That each climb from the depths of despair brings with it hope. As well as endurance, spiritual muscles, and training. We gain a strength that cannot be compared to anything physical.
The Spiritual far surpasses that of the flesh. The Bible says that Spirit is life, and flesh counts for nothing.
Now, in saying all that. Can you imagine what life would have been like if we had known of this years ago? If each one of us, regardless of age, were reared in the proper understanding of scripture— from the beginning!
How much farther would be now be? What if we were fed the bread of life, and not rotten fruit from religion? Would we have then understood the trials of Christ in our own lives? So that much of the hardship would have been avoided.
The harrowing trials of abuse, abandonment, and heartbreak after heartbreak. The loss, loneliness, divorce, and death may have been bypassed?
What if through the Word of God, we would have known what Jesus was doing all along? Sadly, for many of us we were taught to idolize an image of dead god on a cross.
So when we were scaling the walls in the darkest caverns of night. When we were crying out to a piece of metal and not God. While Jesus was trying to get our attention, religion was choking the living Spirit out of us. So that we had no idea how to hear. We were never taught to listen.
This is what kept us bound for so long.
Due to religion we were filled with beliefs in rituals and traditions that lead to eternal death. We were promised that we received Jesus by eating a piece of bread. But in reality, we were eating blasphemous lies.
We were gorging on rotten fruits that were filled with untruths. Lies that held us back from ever truly having a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. We had a form of godliness but never knew the power there of. The power of faith and repentance that would have set us free.
Leaving our hearts, minds, souls, and Spirits to trust in the one and only living God. We missed our chance to be born again into a new body. Leaving us void of sin, heartache, and pain.
We could have lived as a whole person filled with truth and wisdom. Encompassing understanding and the meaning of forgiveness and healing. The glorious joy of repentance through the Spirit of Christ.
We would have known that through the Spirit of Jesus Christ, we would have received Him.
For many of us, we were indoctrinated into religion at an early age. We were not only kept from God’s goodness and truth, we suffered from the generational curses brought on by blasphemy and religion. Due to the fraudulent feeding to the innocent sheep.
What does Jesus have to say about all of this. Jesus say’s that God ordains and no man need teach you. God says to call no one Father and blaspheme the Holy Spirit. Christ says that he is the one and only mediator to the Father. So why were we taught to go against the laws of God and call it Holy?
I’ll tell you why, religions that teach these practices are of the devils seed. They are deceived themselves and teaching you to be deceived.
8 “‘You shall not make for yourself a carved image, or any likeness of anything that is in heaven above, or that is on the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth. 9 You shall not bow down to them or serve them; for I the Lord your God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers on the children to the third and fourth generation of those who hate me, 10 but showing steadfast love to thousands of those who love me and keep my commandments.“
There it is, in black and white. The truth. Due to the brainwashing of our youth, many of us were trained to sin by a church that teaches evil. A place that is in no way part of the church of Jesus Christ. She is what the Bible calls the harlot. The church who prostitutes herself.
Jesus never spread lies to change his word for his own personal gain. You see this in religious buildings and cathedrals everyday. They worship and teach of an image of a dead god. They place man-made crucifixes everywhere to kneel to and worship. This is a sin against God.
Open up the book of Deuteronomy, and please, read what it say’s about idols.
This religion erects statues of their dead “sisters” and “priests.” They teach us to practice divination and necromancy by praying to them. By summoning the spirits of “Saints,” to answer our prayers. When in fact those who walk in the Holy Spirit of God, on Earth, are the Saints. They teach lies that are leading people downward.
The Book of Deuteronomy (18:9–12) explicitly warns the Israelites against engaging in the Canaanite practice of divination from the dead: When thou art come into the land which the LORD thy God giveth thee, thou shalt not learn to do according to the abominations of those nations.
They deny Jesus over and over by saying that His word is a lie and theirs is the truth. They teach us to walk in the sins that they have created. Pagan gods and rituals that have overcome their ability to understand and accept the truth. They have given over to their reprobate minds.
How dare they take the credit. How dare they fill the minds of our youth that the Catholic faith is the only way to Heaven. That is a lie against the scriptures..
How dare they deny the one and only living God, Jesus Christ. Jesus gave His life on the cross so that we may live. So that through Him we may see the Father.
Mark 9:42 “If anyone causes one of these little ones–those who believe in me–to stumble, it would be better for them if a large millstone were hung around their neck and they were thrown into the sea.
These are the same that have no understanding that they will go to hell. They are idolators, necromancers and diviner’s. They pray to the dead in hopes for miracles. They give Satan the glory and call him Mary.
Exodus 20: 3-6 “You shall have no other gods before me. “You shall not make for yourself a carved image, or any likeness of anything that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth. You shall not bow down to them or serve them, for I the Lord your God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers on the children to the third and the fourth generation of those who hate me, but showing steadfast love to thousands of those who love me and keep my commandments.
Now, let me ask you a question, and I want you to think about your answer before speaking. Our Father, in Heaven, clearly tells us that Jesus Christ is His Son.
Now, if your son or daughter was mangled, maimed, beaten, humiliated, and murdered. Then hung from a cross naked to die. All for the betterment of others. Would you allow people to keep your child’s memory alive, by constructing an image of your beaten and bloodied baby nailed to a cross to be worn as jewelry?
No, you would not because it is insane!
Would you allow people to profit by selling him or her in stores? To hang them on walls, buildings, and “churches?” So that everyday people could see your child, your child who doesn’t even look like yours paraded around in this way?
It is demonic!
Well, what would make you think that God the Father is OK with it? He gives us strict instruction against it but the Catholic Church has made it a universal sin for billions to honor. People are kneeling in front of it, sobbing, worshiping, and praying to it for answers.
Sounds logical, right? Wrong, it does not!
The Lord has something to say to you, today! “The cross is EMPTY, and I AM ALIVE.”
Good Lord, if that does not wake you up, nothing will. Today is the day to seek the truth and allow Jesus to save your souls.
Because God the Father, Jehovah, tells us over and over in scripture that he hates this religion. That He despises its practices and blasphemy. He has warned the world from the inception of his Word onto paper, and through His Son, Jesus Christ, on Earth.
The Prophets have prophesied and still you don’t listen. Those that have placed your faith in this sin will not see the Kingdom of Heaven.
You are not saved.
Religion has taught us to do exactly what God says not to. We were taught by men who look holy and stole Gods Name. There is only one Father in Heaven and you are not to take that Name. You do not know, nor carry the power of God.
Matthew 23:8 And call no man your father upon the earth: for one is your Father, which is in heaven.
The Roman Catholic church is false. They have brainwashed people for centuries, and because of them, millions are burning in the caverns of hell. Those who beloved in the Catholic faith and had no faith in the truth of Jesus Christ. Many who performed wonderful dead’s on Earth are burning in the eternal fire. Why? Because they thought good deeds lead to Heaven.
Men and woman who started out innocent were indoctrinated as babies into teachings that would defile them and cast them out on their last day. Those who gave their lives into the priesthood and sisterhood of lies are now gnashing their teeth.
Brothers and sisters, it is the devil’s doctrine. That which was born and bred by Constantine. Nothing more than pagans gods and divination rituals. All To gain power in the government of past days. Today is no different.
The devil’s roots are deep within that “church.” The leaders and Pope so full of wickedness because they teach the Devil’s lies. Yet millions if not billions are blinded by the devil’s lie. Billions refuse to face the truth, and for this, Jesus will refuse you on your last day.
Do your think the God who threw His favorite angel from Heaven, with the third, for their transgression. Will not deny you for yours? He most certainly will. Why? Because you choose to believe man before GOD.
Proverbs 9:10 The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom, and knowledge of the Holy One is understanding.
The deception is deep. The deception that once had me bound for many years. Jesus saved me from the hell of it, and He will save you too. If you listen to GOD, and walk away.
My heart grieves for the millions who will choose to ignore the truth. However, it rejoices for those who will heed the warning. Those who will seek the Lord in truth. There will be millions of disparaged Catholics facing a fiery end. All because they chose man over God.
The Catholic church is not the way to Heaven. It is the way to hell. Salvation is only found through Jesus Christ.
1 Timothy 2:5 For there is one God and one mediator between God and mankind, the man Christ Jesus.
John 14:6 Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me
John 3:3 Jesus replied, “Very truly I tell you, no one can see the kingdom of God unless they are born again.”
Please, listen to God. You must open your Bibles and seek the Spirit of the Lord.
Sir Charles Spurgeon has said it best. “Christ’s sheep will not be offended by Christ’s voice.”
I say, “Only offenders of the law are offended.
There is only one church body”
Corinthians 10:17 “Since there is one bread, we who are many are one body; for we all partake of the one bread.“
The church is the five fold body of believers led by the Apostles, Prophets, preachers, teachers, and Evangelists. Some having one gift, others having many.
Corinthians 12:28 “Here are some of the parts God has appointed for the church: first are apostles, second are prophets, third are teachers, then those who do miracles, those who have the gift of healing, those who can help others, those who have the gift of leadership, those who speak in unknown languages.”
Galatians 2:16 “Know that a man is not justified by the works of the law but by faith in Jesus Christ. For by the works of the law no flesh shall be justified.”
2 Timothy 1:9 “Who has saved us and called us with a holy calling, not according to our works, but by according to His own purpose and grace which was given to us is Christ Jesus before time began.”
There is no confusion in the true church.
1 Corinthians 14:33 “For God is not a God of confusion but of peace. As in all the churches of the saints.”
1 Corinthians 1:2 “To the church of God, to those sanctified in Christ Jesus, called to be saints together with all those who in every place call upon the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, both their Lord and ours.”
Ephesians 2:1 “So then you are no longer strangers and aliens, but fellow citizens with the saints, and are of God’s household.”
Jesus answered, “I tell you the truth, no one can enter the kingdom of God unless he is born of water and Spirit. Flesh gives birth to flesh, but Spirit gives birth to Spirit. You should not be surprised at My saying, “You must be born again.”
Jesus is asking you, today, “Follow Me.”
God Bless You
