My name is Jerilynn Davis, a follower of JESUS CHRIST who lives in the state of Pennsylvania with my loving husband, Ed. I wasn’t always a follower of JESUS, as I was raised in a Catholic home that believed in false doctrines. My parents were loving, supportive, and did the best they could but unfortunately, they were raised on lies as well and just passed them on to me. Dad and Mom taught me to have love and respect for JESUS, but never encouraged me to read the Bible. I never even had a Bible, just small prayer books. My parents had a very large Catholic Bible that was kept on a table, but I don’t ever remember either one of them reading from it. When we attended a Catholic mass, we were encouraged to follow along with whatever was read to us during the service, NOT from the Bible, but from what they termed a “missalette”.
Yes, the Catholic system teaches about JESUS being the Only-Begotten Son of GOD and that HE died on the cross and arose from the grave on the third day. They also profess the Holy Trinity: God The Father, God The Son, and God The Holy Spirit. BUT THAT’S WHERE THE SIMILARITY ENDS! Catholics also lift up Mary and pray to her along with other dead people, which is an abomination to The LORD. Mary was chosen by The LORD to be the mother of JESUS because He was pleased with the way she lived her life. The dead people are who the “Catholic Elect” decide are saints by canonizing them and pray to them. Having any contact with the dead is forbidden and is considered to be witchcraft!
In the book of Luke 1:28 GOD’S Word states: And the angel came in unto her, and said, Hail, thou that art highly favoured, the Lord is with thee: blessed art thou among women. Mary was a virgin when she was conceived by the Holy Spirit. Then after JESUS, the Only Begotten Son of GOD was born, Joseph and Mary had other children. In the book of Matthew 13:55 GOD’S Word states: Is not this the carpenter’s son? Is not his mother called Mary? and his brethren, James, and Joses, and Simon, and Judas?
The Catholic system uses graven images (notice all the statues inside the building) which The LORD speaks about in His Word. (Exodus 20:4 Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water above the earth: ) This means a statue or carved image of anything that The LORD GOD has created, such as people, the moon, the stars, animals, fish, the list goes on. I recently was in someone’s house that had an old copy of the Knights of Columbus, a Catholic fraternal organization, version of the Ten Commandments on their wall, which left out the commandment spoken of in Exodus 20:4. They divided the commandment of Exodus 20:17, which states: Thou shalt not covet thy neighbor’s house, thou shalt not covet thy neighbor’s wife, nor his manservant, nor his maidservant, nor his ox, nor his ass, nor any thing that is thy neighbor’s into two commandments, so the warning about graven images is totally left out. Also, the only true priests are direct descendants of the Levites, from the tribe of Levi, of the twelve tribes of Israel, appointed by The LORD GOD. No one else has the right to call themselves a priest. I will elaborate on this subject at another time since there are many issues that exist on this matter. This is confusing to many because there is truth mixed in with the lies. The LORD is not the author of confusion (James 3:11 Doth a fountain send forth at the same place sweet water and bitter?) Therefore, you cannot mix truth and lies together. I was raised with the false belief that being Catholic meant a free ticket to salvation and I didn’t need to worry about anything else.
THEN THE LORD GOD ALMIGHTY (NOT allah, that’s a false god) GAVE ME A WAKEUP CALL.
I came to know how much The LORD loves me (all of us) and left my former life behind. Eventually, The LORD GOD led me to earn my degree and become an ordained minister. However, I don’t consider myself a minister because in The LORD’S WORD he speaks clearly that women are NOT to have leadership positions within the Church, which is the true Body of CHRIST. Two examples of this are as follows:
I Corinthians 14:34-35 Let your women keep silence in the churches: for it is not permitted unto them to speak; but they are commanded to be under obedience, as also saith the law. And if they will learn any thing, let them ask their husbands at home: for it is a shame for women to speak in the church.
Also 1 Timothy 2:11-13 Let the woman learn in silence with all subjection. But I suffer not a woman to teach, nor to usurp authority over the man, but to be in silence. For Adam was first formed, then Eve.
There are probably many of you that will be angry and question this information, stating that times have changed, but The LORD GOD doesn’t lie and HIS WORD NEVER CHANGES! The LORD did NOT intend women to have leadership positions within the Church, therefore; there should be no such thing as a female pastor, minister, deacon, or elder. When a woman is given or takes a position of authority within the true Church (Body of Christ), this is rebellion against The LORD and brings nothing but confusion.
The LORD desired for me to receive my training in order to learn the knowledge of His Word and draw closer to HIM. As a follower of JESUS CHRIST, I am continuing what JESUS instructs all believers to do: share the truth with those who have the desire to follow HIM. In the book of Matthew 28:18-20 GOD’S Word states: And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth. Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world. Amen.
I am excited and privileged to share this website with all of you. The idea for launching this site has been inspired by GOD The FATHER and is dedicated to sharing the ONLY Good News that truly exists, JESUS CHRIST. To GOD be ALL the Glory!
Just who is JESUS?
I can answer that question by referring to the Bible. In the book of John 3:16 GOD’S Word states: For God so loved the world, that hegave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
JESUS was born into this world for one purpose – to die on the cross for our sins. In 1 John 3:8 GOD’S Word States: He that committeth sin is of the devil; for the devil sinneth from the beginning. For this purpose, the Son of God was manifested, that he might destroy the works of the devil.
JESUS laid down his life for us, FREELY! He was crucified, died and arose from the grave on the third day. He is very much alive, as He sits at The FATHER’S right hand in heaven. Because of JESUS, and ONLY because of JESUS we have the gift of salvation and eternal life. We must use our gift of free will and choose JESUS CHRIST as our Lord and Savior before we are able to receive forgiveness, salvation, and eternal life.
Remember, you cannot change yourself – ONLY THE LORD GOD CANCHANGE YOU – Come to Him just as you are.Some people feel they are not “good enough” and think they need to “fix themselves” first. WRONG!
I used to think that as well, and The LORD accepted me as I was: a filthy, broken sinner, desperate for His LOVE. The LORD is continuously faithful as He encourages and strengthens me and has gradually brought me to the place I am today. He continues to bless me abundantly, as He will with EVERYONE who comes to Him.
Life will certainly not be easy as a follower of JESUS CHRIST, as there are many people who will be offended by even the mention of His Name and will criticize you, maybe even threaten you for your belief. In fact, there have been many malicious login attempts to this website from people who are offended or threatened by the mention of JESUS’ Name. These people are cowards who wish to stay in darkness, instead of following JESUS CHRIST, the GOOD NEWS who would light their way. I address these people who are guilty of these things: Proverbs 15:3 The eyes of the LORD are in every place, beholding the evil and the good. I consider this The LORD’S website because He is the one who gave me the inspiration and I am the willing vessel to carry out His request.
Staying on the narrow path to follow JESUS instead of the wider path to follow the world takes boldness, patience, and total faith in JESUS CHRIST! The LORD GOD will guide you through every day. I would rather choose being criticized or ostracized by others, whether it be co-workers or family than turn my back on JESUS CHRIST! In the Holy Bible, the book of Luke 9:26, JESUS states: For whosoever shall be ashamed of me, and of my words, of him shall the Son of man be ashamed, when he shall come in his own glory, and in his Father’s, and of the holy angels. In Matthew 24:35 JESUS states: Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away.
The LORD GOD is a Righteous and Loving GOD who desires for us to follow Him freely, not to be forced. He doesn’t want any of us to perish and go to hell, but if a person uses their free will to reject The LORD and turn their back on Him, that’s what will happen. IT IS A CRUCIAL LIFE CHOICE WE ALL MUST MAKE: EITHER YOU ARE WITH JESUS OR YOU ARE NOT- THERE IS NO MIDDLE GROUND!
I wallowed in spiritual darkness for many years, blindly and arrogantly existing as a sinner, accepted JESUS CHRIST as my Lord and Savior in 2004, and have never looked back. I will emphasize again: Your walk with JESUS will not always be “peaches and cream”. In fact, there will be more challenges in your life, because the devil hates all of us and will certainly not be happy if you decide to follow JESUS instead of the ways of the world. There is also a huge misconception that once we accept JESUS as our LORD and SAVIOR that we no longer have any fun. That is definitely not true. My husband and I have been blessed with a marriage filled with joy and laughter, EVERY DAY! If you stay focused on The LORD, He will equip you for everything and enable you to overcome the trials in your life! Each day I am blessed with is a journey of hope and promise, not darkness, as it once was back in the “old days”.
