WELCOME TO THE BIBLE STUDY PAGE!
THANK YOU, FATHER GOD, FOR THE PRIVILEGE TO SHARE YOUR PRECIOUS HOLY WORD WITH OTHERS. I AM TRULY GRATEFUL, DEAR LORD!

IN THE MIGHTY NAME OF JESUS CHRIST, I PRAY. AMEN!!!
MESSAGE SIX – 04-17-21
THE WORD OF ALMIGHTY GOD IS ALIVE!
The best way to learn about The LORD GOD is to read His Holy Word, the Bible. It is our life manual, a love letter freely provided to us from ALMIGHTY GOD, who created us in His image and loves us so much. Every single answer to every question that each of us has had throughout our entire lives can be found within the pages of the Holy Bible!
This is why The LORD GOD has lovingly provided and preserved His powerful and precious Word for ALL of us. He desires for us to understand how much He loves us and He wants us to draw closer to Him through His Living Word. AMEN!
THE WORD OF ALMIGHTY GOD IS ALIVE!
This is definitely something we should be excited about. You cannot state this about any other “book” that you have read in your entire life, including any “book” in any library, other than the Holy Word of ALMIGHTY GOD! That is because every word within the Holy Bible has been inspired by The HOLY SPIRIT. In the book of John 1:1-5 GOD’S WORD STATES: In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. The same was in the beginning with God. All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made, that was made. In him was life; and the life was the light of men. And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not. AMEN! So this Scripture tells us that GOD The FATHER, GOD The SON, and GOD The HOLY SPIRIT are three in One. GOD The FATHER is a Spirit, and GOD The SON is GOD Made Flesh, who came to this earth to die on the cross for our sins. GOD The FATHER and GOD The SON share the same HOLY SPIRIT. JESUS CHRIST was foreordained before the foundation of the world and was manifested in the flesh so He could destroy the works of the devil. We were born into sin when Adam and Eve fell from grace in the garden when they disobeyed ALMIGHTY GOD and were cast out of the garden. Their sin is passed down to all of us because we are all their descendants. In addition to being born sinners, we are fleshly; therefore, we continue to sin because that is our fleshly nature. Because of our sinful nature, we are spiritually separated from The LORD GOD, just like what happened with Adam and Eve when they fell from grace. That is why we all need JESUS CHRIST, The Word Made Flesh!
The LORD GOD loves all of us and does not desire for any of us to perish. This is why He blessed us with JESUS CHRIST, so we have a way out of going to hell and eternal damnation. Hell is a place prepared especially for the devil and his angels; however, if a person freely chooses to reject JESUS CHRIST and dies in that spiritual state, they will go there as well! We are provided The LORD GOD’S powerful gift of grace and we need to freely choose to accept it in order to be saved. JESUS CHRIST came to this earth as a man, only without sin, and freely laid His life down for all of us. He shed His precious blood, died on the cross, and arose triumphantly from the grave on the third day to conquer sin and death for those of us who freely choose to repent, turning from our sins, believe on Him and commit our lives to serve JESUS CHRIST.
REMEMBER – IT IS A COMMITMENT OF OUR LIVES TO SERVE JESUS CHRIST!
It is NOT about saying a “sinners prayer” and continuing with our lives the way they have always been. It is a total change that starts within us. AMEN! In the book of John 1:14 GOD’S WORD STATES: And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth. AMEN! The Word is capital “W” because this refers to JESUS CHRIST, who walked this earth and dwelt among us! As we read in John 3:16 we learn just how much The LORD GOD loves us, because He blessed us with JESUS CHRIT, His only-begotten SON, so we would have the chance of everlasting life instead of eternal damnation. This is a precious gift that is available to ALL of us; however, we must freely choose it. Love is not about forcing or programming, like what the devil wants to do. Love is freely coming to someone because you desire to be with them. That is what The LORD GOD desires – for us to freely come to Him through JESUS CHRIST. The more time with spend in prayer and studying our bible the closer we will draw to The LORD GOD because we will learn more about Him. So we must make our free -will choice to serve JESUS CHRIST. This decision will make eternal life in the presence of ALMIGHTY GOD possible rather than eternal condemnation in the fires of hell with the devil and his angels. As we read in the book of Romans 10:9 That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. Also in the book of Mark 16:16 JESUS CHRIST STATES: He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believeth not shall be damned.
In review, it is important to realize that every word within the Holy Bible is inspired by The HOLY SPIRIT, as we read in 2Timothy 3:16-17 All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: That the man of God may be perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all good works.
In the book of Hebrews 4:12 GOD’S WORD STATES: For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart. This is why people get so convicted when we try to witness JESUS CHRIST to them and they may get angry and walk away because they do not want to hear the truth. BECAUSE THE WORD OF ALMIGHTY GOD IS ALIVE! It WILL divide asunder, It WILL reveal the truth, It WILL reveal light to the darkness, so the darkness cannot hide anymore. Some people do not believe they need to repent because they desire to wallow in their sin and may think they are a “good person”. They do not want to hear the truth of ALMIGHTY GOD because it will indeed convict them of their sins. There are many people today calling the bible “hate speech” and are attempting to have The LORD GOD’S Word removed from the public eye. WHY? Because these people want to live a comfortable life in their sin and foolishly believe that The LORD GOD loves us all just the way we are. This is NOT according to what The LORD GOD says in His Word. He loves us; however, He does NOT love our sins! That is why He has blessed us with JESUS CHRIST. Otherwise JESUS CHRIST came to this earth and died on the cross for nothing. But we know better than that!
It is important to choose wisely when we consider the bible translation that we use. There are many false translations available today and it is crucial to take this matter to The LORD GOD in prayer. The King James Version (not the New King James) is the only translation that is directly transcribed from the original Hebrew and Greek tongues and is not copyrighted, unlike modern versions of the bible, such as NASB, NIV, NKJV or whatever else came afterward. If your KJV Bible states it is copyrighted, this refers to the maps, concordance, etcetera, that has been added to the bible, but NOT the actual Words of ALMIGHTY GOD. The KJV is public domain from Genesis throughout the book of Revelation and there have been several editions, but NO revisions. Editions have to do with the change of certain letters in the old English language, such as substituting the letter “v” and “p” in certain words. Revisions that have been done in all the modern translations add to or take from The Word of ALMIGHTY GOD and these people add their own twist to whatever version it happens to be in order to entertain and “scratch itching ears”.
2Timothy 4:3-4 For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables.
Sadly enough, many folks want their own “personalized” version of the bible so it can suit their own opinion. IT DOES NOT WORK THAT WAY WITH ALMIGHTY GOD! This is why it is so important to consider your source when studying the Holy Bible. If you choose the wrong translation, you have a foundation that will crumble right under your feet! The bible (the correct version of the bible) is our daily bread, our living water. The LORD GOD has created each of us spirit-soul-body. We have a physical body and a mind that stays healthy through nourishment of proper food and drink. Just as in the natural, we also need spiritual nourishment for our soul. We need to be spiritually fed daily with the Living Word of ALMIGHTY GOD so we can learn more about The LORD GOD, about His character, and about His powerful love for us through His gift of grace through JESUS CHRIST, the most beautiful love story that will ever exist. To all haters out there – THIS DOES NOT SOUND LIKE “hate speech” TO ME!
We have been blessed by The Word Made Flesh who dwelt among us if we freely choose to accept Him. I encourage you to stay in your Word, stay in prayer, and consider your source of bible by taking everything to The LORD GOD in prayer. If you need a bible, check out the “bibles” page on this site. May The LORD GOD richly bless all of you!
MESSAGE FIVE – 04-10-20
WE ARE CALLED TO REPENT
We are all sinners because we are the descendants of Adam and Eve, who were disobedient to ALMIGHTY GOD. The woman hearkened to the voice of the serpent instead of the warning and instruction from The LORD GOD and ate of the forbidden fruit. Adam and Eve were cast out of the garden because they fell from grace. This sin is passed down to ALL of us and we are all condemned to hell unless we repent, turn from our sins, and commit our lives to serve JESUS CHRIST.
Repentance means that we are truly sorry for our sins and have been convicted by The HOLY SPIRIT. It also means that we completely turn from our old ways and begin fresh by serving JESUS CHRIST as our LORD and SAVIOUR. Many pastors, teachers, and evangelists do not preach on repentance because a lot of folks would rather have their ears scratched and stay comfortable in their worldly lives. They do not want to consider giving anything up because they wear their fleshly lives like an old shoe. To those who choose to remain in their sin? They will die in condemnation if they have not repented and committed their lives to JESUS CHRIST. The LORD GOD makes it very clear to all of us in His Holy Word and nobody will have an excuse on judgment day!
The message of repentance was preached by John the Baptist, who was blessed with a powerful ministry and given the privilege to prepare the way of JESUS CHRIST. John was the son of Zechariah and Elisabeth, who was a cousin of Mary, whom The LORD GOD had chosen to be the vessel to carry His only-begotten SON, JESUS CHRIST. Mary was a virgin and was conceived by The HOLY SPIRIT and while she was pregnant, she visited her cousin Elisabeth while she was still carrying John and the babe leaped in her womb when she heard the salutation from Mary. Elisabeth was then filled with The HOLY GHOST and therefore, John the Baptist was born filled with The HOLY GHOST!
Luke 1:41 And it came to pass, that, when Elisabeth heard the salutation of Mary, the babe leaped in her womb; and Elisabeth was filled with the Holy Ghost:
We read about John the Baptist in the book of Matthew 3:1-3 In those days came John the Baptist, preaching in the wilderness of Judea, And saying, Repent ye: for the kingdom of heaven is at hand. For this is he that was spoken of by the prophet Esaias, saying, The voice of one crying in the wilderness, Prepare ye the way of the Lord, make his paths straight.
When many of the Jews came to John to be baptized, the “religious elite” came to him, not for repentance, but probably just to check him out and monitor what he was doing. Because of their hardened hearts and spiritual blindness, they did not receive the true message of repentance and chose to cling to the law, the Old Testament, and their ways of legalism. John spoke these words to them in Matthew 3:11 I indeed baptize you with water unto repentance: but he that cometh after me is mightier than I, whose shoes I am not worthy to bear: he shall baptize you with the Holy Ghost, and with fire:
AMEN! John the Baptist shared this powerful prophecy with the crowd, including the “religious elite” so they knew that one mightier than himself was about to come onto the scene. He was a humble servant of JESUS CHRIST who lifted Him up and fulfilled his ministry, by preparing the way for JESUS CHRIST. Now the baptism of John the Baptist was a water baptism of repentance and no one could receive salvation in this manner. His purpose was to prepare the Jewish people to receive JESUS CHRIST when He began His earthly ministry and to call attention to the fact that we are all sinners and need to repent. It is important to realize that only the Jews could receive atonement for their sins during this time, until JESUS CHRIST shed His precious blood and died on the cross for the sins of the whole world. Now when LORD JESUS came onto the scene and was baptized by John the Baptist, He began His earthly ministry after He was tempted in the wilderness. We read in Matthew 4:17 From that time Jesus began to preach, and to say, Repent: for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.
We continue in Matthew 9:9-11 And as Jesus passed forth from thence, he saw a man, named Matthew, sitting at the receipt of custom: and he saith unto him, Follow me. And he arose, and followed him. And it came to pass, as Jesus sat at meat in the house, behold, many publicans and sinners came and sat down with him and his disciples. And when the Pharisees saw it, they said unto his disciples, Why eateth your Master with publicans and sinners?
Now the Pharisees were the Jewish “religious elite” who followed JESUS CHRIST wherever He journeyed, not because they desired to draw close to Him, but because they desired to “trip Him up” and find fault in His ministry because they were threatened by LORD JESUS. They who were hardened of heart were judging the publicans and sinners and also judging JESUS CHRIST because He sat at dinner with them. JESUS CHRIST responded to them in Matthew 9:12-13 But when Jesus heard that, he said unto them, They that be whole need not a physician, but they that are sick. But go ye and learn what that meaneth, I will have mercy, and not sacrifice: for I am not come to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance.
AMEN! PRAISE YOU, LORD JESUS! Since we are all sinners, then JESUS CHRIST calls all of us to repentance. The question is: Will you answer the call? As we continue with the earthly ministry of JESUS CHRIST in the book of Matthew chapter twenty-one when He made His triumphal entry into Jerusalem, not long before He was offered up to be crucified. Of course the Pharisees challenged His authority and LORD JESUS responded to them in Matthew 21:32 For John came unto you in the way of righteousness, and ye believed him not: but the publicans and the harlots believed him: and ye, when ye had seen it, repented not afterward, that ye might believe him.
JESUS CHRIST called the Pharisees out on their legalism and hardened hearts. They had the opportunity to truly repent, but they did not believe that they needed to do so. Yet, the publicans and the harlots that the Pharisees had judged did go to John the Baptist and repented because they believed the message. This reminds me of the “old days” when I was unsaved and following the cult of Catholicism. I was raised and taught within this system of wickedness that I was okay just for the fact that I was “Catholic” and did not need to repent of my sins. I do not ever remember my parents, any fake “priests”, or teachers ever teaching the message of repentance. I am forever grateful to The HOLY SPIRIT for not giving up on me and getting my attention on this matter. I triumphantly walked away from Catholicism and keep moving forward as a repentant servant of MASTER JESUS CHRIST!
We are commissioned to boldly share the complete gospel message of The LORD GOD’S Holy Word, and that includes preaching repentance. If we go into the book of Mark 6:11-12 And whosoever shall not receive you, nor hear you, when ye depart thence, shake off the dust under your feet for a testimony against them. Verily I say unto you, it shall be more tolerable for Sodom and Gomorrha in the day of judgment, than for that city. And they went out, and preached that men should repent.
If you read the book of Matthew 28:18-20 this is called “The Great Commission” by many because it is the account of JESUS CHRIST instructing His apostles on their responsibilities as His servants and members of The Body of CHRIST. This instruction is for everyone that is saved and serving JESUS CHRIST. If you are not sharing the message of true repentance with others, then you are taking from The LORD GOD’S Holy Word and not pleasing Him. We are warned to not add to or take from His Word in the book of Revelation chapter twenty-two. Now, there is certainly a difference between true and false repentance and JESUS CHRIST provides a good example of this in the book of Luke chapter eighteen. LORD JESUS speaks a parable and directs it to the “religious elite” who lifted themselves up and believed they did not need repentance.
Luke 18:9-14 And he spake this parable unto certain which trusted in themselves that they were righteous, and despised other: Two men went up into the temple to pray; the one a Pharisee, and the other a publican. The Pharisee stood and prayed thus with himself, God I thank thee, that I am not as other men are, extortioners, unjust, adulterers, or even as this publican. Wow! The Pharisee was so filled with self-righteousness that his heart was not repentant and he even judged the publican that was beside him! Continuing with the next verse…I fast twice in the week, I give tithes of all that I possess. The Pharisee is focused on “good works” and legalism, just like many folks today are focused on just “going through the motions” by attending a service at their worldly man-made “dead religion church” such as Lutheran, Presbyterian, Protestant, etcetera, putting money in the plate, their bible study group, choir practice, spaghetti dinner fundraisers, or whatever it happens to be. Many people have practiced these vain worldly traditions for most of their lives and think that they are “okay” because of that. Sadly, they have not repented of their sins and do not have a personal committed relationship with JESUS CHRIST. We continue with this chapter in the next verse…And the publican, standing afar off, would not lift up so much as his eyes unto heaven, but smote upon his breast, saying, God be merciful to me a sinner. This man was in a true state of repentance and humbled himself before ALMIGHTY GOD. He would not even so much as lift up his eyes because he felt he was not worthy to do so. We continue as JESUS CHRIST STATES: I tell you, this man went down to his house justified rather than the other: for everyone that exalteth himself shall be abased; and he that humbleth himself shall be exalted.
We must be humbled before ALMIGHTY GOD and always in a state of repentance because we continue to sin every day and it is only through the grace of The LORD GOD through the shed blood of JESUS CHRIST that we are saved. The false doctrine, “once saved, always saved” does not have a place in the Word of ALMIGHTY GOD. Yes, once we are saved we are sealed by The LORD GOD. However, we must stay in a place of repentance and not return to our old ways or we could backslide right back into the world and fall away from grace. We must take up our cross daily and fight the good fight of being a servant of MASTER JESUS CHRIST.
Another example of repentance is found in the book of Luke chapter twenty-three, when JESUS CHRIST was hanging on the cross with the two malefactors, one on either side of Him. LORD JESUS came to this earth as GOD MADE FLESH, and experienced and felt all of the pain, suffering, temptations, that we go through in our daily lives, only JESUS CHRIST is without sin. And remember that no one endured the excruciating painful death that JESUS CHRIST endured for all of us on that cross, so we do not have a reason to complain. As we read in Luke 23:39 And one of the malefactors which were hanged railed on him, saying, if thou be Christ, save thyself and us. This man had been convicted of his crime and was serving his just punishment. Yet, he arrogantly joined in with the crowd who were mocking LORD JESUS and said, …”save thyself and us”. He was making himself equal with the SON of GOD and was certainly not in a state of repentance. As we continue, we see the difference between the two malefactors in verses 40-42 But the other answering rebuked him, saying, dost thou not fear God, seeing thou art in the same condemnation? And we indeed justly; for we receive the due reward of our deeds: but this man hath done nothing amiss. And he said unto Jesus, Lord, remember me when thou comest into thy kingdom. This man truly feared and respected ALMIGHTY GOD and believed that JESUS CHRIST was the SON of GOD. He was humble and knew that he was being justly punished for his crime and he was in a true state of repentance. JESUS CHRIST rewarded this man as we continue in verse 43 And Jesus said unto him, verily I say unto thee, to day shalt thou be with me in paradise.
The LORD GOD is indeed a loving GOD; however, He is also a righteous GOD and a GOD of wrath. He loves us who are His creation but He does NOT love our sins. This is why He desires for us to freely come to Him through JESUS CHRIST by repentance as we read in 2Peter 3:9 The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.
We are currently in the beginning of sorrows and about to enter into the tribulation period. ALMIGHTY GOD has been sending us warnings for a long time and they continue to increase all over the world. We are witnessing famines, floods, extreme weather, pestilences, rumours of wars, nations warring against one another, people turning against one another, in greater numbers and increasing incidences. Our time on this earth is short and we need to consider our spiritual state and realize it is time to repent and turn from the wickedness of this world. Sadly, despite all of these warnings from The LORD GOD, many people have continued to harden their hearts against JESUS CHRIST and are offended at His Name. As we read in the book of Revelation chapter nine, this will indeed get much worse and many people will have such a hardened heart that they will never repent of their sins.
Revelation 9:20-21 And the rest of the men which were not killed by these plagues yet repented not of the works of their hands, that they should not worship devils, and idols of gold, and silver, and brass, and stone, and of wood: which neither can see, nor hear, nor walk: Neither repented they of their murders, nor of their sorceries, nor of their fornication, nor of their thefts.
Wow! This is truly an example of a hardened heart against ALMIGHTY GOD! Folks, it is important to realize that JESUS CHRIST conquered sin and death for us when He died on that cross and arose triumphantly on the third day. But we must repent and commit our lives to serve JESUS CHRIST if we are to partake of His gift of forgiveness, salvation, and eternal life. Do it today, while you still have the time to do so.
MESSAGE FOUR – 04-03-21
EASTER – PAGAN CELEBRATION OF FERTILITY
Ah yes, That time of the year when most people celebrate what they call “Easter”. I grew up partaking of this tradition because my family was raised the same way and they just passed the “cult of Catholicism” and their vain worldly traditions on to me. We observed “Lent”, we abstained from meat on Friday during this time, we observed “Ash Wednesday”, we confessed our sins to a fake “priest”, my parents lied to me when I was little and told me the “Easter Bunny” would bring me a basket of candy, we colored eggs and decorated our house with eggs, my mom baked “Easter Bread” for the queen of heaven, we kissed the feet of a graven image statue on a cross that was supposed to represent JESUS CHRIST, we attended a Catholic “mass” that resembled a Broadway show complete with “holy water” and incense and candlelight. WHAT A MOCKERY OF LORD JESUS CHRIST!!!
AT HOME, MY PARENTS OR FAMILY MEMBERS NEVER DISCUSSED THE DEATH ON THE CROSS AND RESURRECTION OF JESUS CHRIST DURING THIS TIME, WE NEVER READ FROM THE BIBLE, WE NEVER CONSIDERED WHY WE PRACTICED THESE VAIN WORLDLY TRADITIONS, AND WE NEVER THOUGHT ABOUT WHY THE DATE OF “EASTER” WAS DIFFERENT EVERY YEAR.
I AM TRULY GRATEFUL THAT THE HOLY SPIRIT GOT MY ATTENTION AND I REALIZED THAT CATHOLICISM AND FOLLOWING THESE VAIN WORLDLY TRADITIONS WOULD SEND ME STRAIGHT TO HELL!
So, what does ALMIGHTY GOD say about all of this?
The word “Easter” is in the Holy Bible only one time and refers to Passover, not the pagan festival that most of the world partakes of today, trying to mix symbols of fertility such as rabbits and eggs with the death and resurrection of JESUS CHRIST. If we go into the book of Acts 12:1-4 Now about that time Herod the king stretched forth his hands to vex certain of the church. 2 And he killed James the brother of John with the sword. 3 And because he saw it pleased the Jews, he proceeded further to take Peter also. (Then were the days of unleavened bread.) 4 And when he had apprehended him, he put him in prison, and delivered him to four quaternions of soldiers to keep him; intending after Easter to bring him forth to the people.
This Scripture is taken from the New Testament and is translated from the original Greek language (KJV Bible) so the Greek translation of Easter is Pascha from the Hebrew word of Pesach, which mean Passover.
Therefore, Easter was never intended to recognize the shed blood, death on the cross, and resurrection of JESUS CHRIST from the dead on the third day to conquer sin and death. In this context back then and today it still means Passover. However, Roman paganism has prevailed and the wicked vessel of Catholicism continues to promote their perverted ways into modern society. Other man-made denominations such as Lutheran, Protestant, Presbyterian, and Methodist, just to name a few, have willfully grasped onto these lies as well. They each have their own “fish fry Fridays” to make money, many of them have baskets of candy and egg hunts for the children and sadly believe what they do is okay. THEY ALL MOCK JESUS CHRIST WITH THEIR VAIN WORLDLY TRADITIONS!
And what about the vain worldly tradition of “Lent”? The word “Lent” is derived from the old English lencten and means “spring”. This forty-day observance is NOT in The LORD GOD’S Holy Word but instead is copied from paganism and is actually worship of Tammuz, a false god. This period of time called “Lent” is also a pagan celebration of their false goddess of fertility named Ishtar, ashtarte, ashtaroth, or oestere. “Lent” is observed forty-days before the pagan feast of Tammuz, the Roman pagan = Roman Catholic satanic counterfeit of JESUS CHRIST, who is our TRUE MESSIAH!
Ezekiel 8:14-15 Then he brought me to the door of the gate of the LORD’S house which was toward the north; and, behold, there sat women weeping for Tammuz. 15 Then said he unto me, Hast thou seen this, O son of man? turn thee yet again, and thou shalt see greater abominations than these.
What does ALMIGHTY GOD say about fasting for “Lent” for forty days?
1Timothy 4:1-5 Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils; 2 Speaking lies in hypocrisy; having their conscience seared with a hot iron; 3 Forbidding to marry, and commanding to abstain from meats, which God hath created to be received with thanksgiving of them which believe and know the truth. 4 For every creature of God is good, and nothing to be refused, it if be received with thanksgiving: 5 For it is sanctified by the word of God and prayer.
The cult of Catholicism has made up their own twisted doctrines, one of them as follows…”The purpose of Lent is to provide that purification by weaning men from sin and selfishness through self-denial and prayer…” BIG FAT LIE!
NO AMOUNT OF FASTING, ABSTAINING FROM MEAT, OR ANY SELF-DENIAL CAN PURIFY ANYONE. ONLY THE SHED BLOOD OF JESUS CHRIST CAN PURIFIY US WHEN WE REPENT, CONFESS OUR SINS TO THE LORD GOD, AND COMMIT OUR LIVES TO SERVE JESUS CHRIST. (Romans 10:9 and Mark 16:16)
What does The LORD GOD say about baking “Easter bread”, “hot cross buns”, and “king cake”?
Jeremiah 7:18 The children gather wood, and the fathers kindle the fire, and the women knead their dough, to make cakes to the queen of heaven, and to pour out drink offerings unto other gods, that they may provoke me to anger.
There is NO queen of heaven, it is another false god that many Catholics pray to and also call her “mother Mary”. They are praying to not only a false god, but also praying to dead people, which is abomination to ALMIGHTY GOD! What about coloring eggs, egg hunts, and “Easter Rabbit”? This all represents false gods of fertility and certainly does NOT please ALMIGHTY GOD!
Why is the perverted celebration of “Easter” a different date each year? Because Catholics are pagans and sun worshippers, like their ancient Roman pagan counterparts. They worship the S-U-N instead of the SON OF GOD, JESUS CHRIST! This is why sunrise services are held; it does not honour the early morning when JESUS CHRIST arose from the dead on the third day, it is to worship the S-U-N. Many pagans flock to Stonehenge every “spring” so they can partake of the vernal equinox, the time of year when light is equal to darkness and the days last longer. In 325 A.D. at the Council of Nicea, the Roman Emperor Constantine, a pagan sun worshipper, determined that the Church was to be part of the Roman state “religion”. They decided that the pagan celebration of “Easter” should always fall on the first Sunday after the first full moon following the vernal equinox and is why the date is different each year.
This is NOT what The LORD GOD states in His Holy Word! Remember that the word “Easter” is in The LORD’S Word one time and it means Passover.
Exodus 12:17-18 And ye shall observe the feast of unleavened bread; for in this selfsame day have I brought your armies out of the land of Egypt: therefore shall ye observe this day in your generations by an ordinance for ever. 18 In the first month, on the fourteenth day of the month at even, ye shall eat unleavened bread, until the one and twentieth day of the month at even.
The LORD’S Passover begins on the same date every year and is the account of ALMIGHTY GOD freeing His chosen nation of Israel from 400-years of bondage in Egypt through His servant, Moses. Therefore, The “Easter” that most of the world acknowledges has nothing to do with JESUS CHRIST dying on the cross and His resurrection from the dead on the third day, NOT does it have anything to do with The LORD’S Passover.
JESUS CHRIST AND HIS APOSTLES NEVER OBSERVED “LENT” SO WHY SHOULD YOU?
Ask The LORD GOD for wisdom and walk away from these pagan practices. Realize we are ALL sinners without the shed blood of JESUS CHRIST to cover us, cleanse us, and redeem us. However, we must do our part and believe on JESUS CHRIST, we must realize we cannot save ourselves and it is NOT about our “good works”. Nobody can earn their way to salvation, despite the dangerous and perverted lies that is taught by Catholicism. I foolishly lived most of my life thinking that because I was a Catholic that I did not need to repent, pray to The LORD GOD, or study my bible. Of course I did not even have my own bible until I was an adult, and I bought that one myself after I was saved!
Romans 3:23 For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;
Romans 3:34 Being justified freely by his grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus:
If you are continuing to observe these pagan traditions and lie to your children, if you have a congregation and are continuing to spread these lies to them, you will be held accountable for your actions unless you repent and turn from them. Remember that you CANNOT serve the world and serve JESUS CHRIST!
ARE PAGAN PRACTICES REALLY WORTH YOUR SOUL?
MESSAGE THREE – 03-27-21
WHERE IS OUR HOPE?
As we have discussed in previous messages, Lucifer was an angel created by ALMIGHTY GOD with his own powerful anointing. He decided to try to be equal with The LORD GOD and exalt himself. One-third of the angels in heaven took Lucifer’s side and for that reason they were all cast out of heaven into the earth. This is where they wander, to and fro, until the time appointed by The LORD GOD that they are all cast into hell for eternity. Hell is a place prepared especially for them! When they were cast out of heaven Lucifer then became Satan, a fallen angel who is also known as the devil, “that old serpent”, the dragon.
When The LORD GOD created Adam, the first man, and placed him in the garden, and formed the first woman from one of Adam’s ribs, The LORD GOD instructed them to not eat of the forbidden fruit, and the devil (the fallen angel) decided to “stir things up” a bit and set his sights on influencing the serpent, which allowed itself to be influenced. A person needs to willfully invite evil into their lives – it cannot just “take them over”, and it is the same with the animals. Therefore, the serpent also had a choice and it chose to be a vessel of Satan, who is very charming, persuasive, and subtil. Satan then persuaded the woman to ignore The LORD GOD’S instruction and ate of the forbidden fruit, give some to her husband, and they fell from grace.
This sin is passed down to ALL of us who are the descendants of Adam and Eve. The only way out of our condemnation is through the precious shed blood of JESUS CHRIST. In the book of Luke 10:18 JESUS CHRIST STATES: And he said unto them, I beheld Satan as lightning fall from heaven. That is when Satan was cast out of heaven into the earth. In the book of Revelation 12:3 GOD’S WORD STATES: And there appeared another wonder in heaven; and behold a great red dragon, having seven heads and ten horns, and seven crowns upon his heads. This “red dragon” is Satan. We continue with Revelation 12:4 And his tail drew the third part of the stars of heaven, and did cast them to the earth: and the dragon stood before the woman which was ready to be delivered, for to devour her child as soon as it was born. So, “the third part” speaks of the one-third of the angels that rebelled against ALMIGHTY GOD by taking the side of the devil and were cast out of heaven as well.
The devil is the father of lies, as we read in John 8:44 Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it. He is deceiving the whole world right now, folks! Those who are not abiding in JESUS CHRIST are being deceived. Those who are carrying out all of these things going on right now, to control people, to depopulate the earth – they are ALL following Satan because they are deceived – and they desire to deceive EVERYONE! The only Way out of that deception, out of that trap, the prison of fear, is through JESUS CHRIST! AMEN!
Satan is also called the prince of this world as we read in John 12:31 when JESUS CHRIST STATES: Now is the judgment of this world: now shall the prince of this world be cast out. LORD JESUS declared this when He spoke with His disciples before He was to be crucified. The devil is also known as the prince of the air, as we read in Ephesians 2:2 Wherein in time past ye walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that now worketh in the children of disobedience. IT IS IMPORTANT TO BE AWARE OF THESE THINGS AND TO NOT BE DECEIVED, SO YOU DO HAVE THE HOPE OF JESUS CHRIST! We continue in John 3:16 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. This is a precious gift of grace provided to us from our Heavenly FATHER. All we need to do is repent and believe on JESUS CHRIST, accept this gift, commit our lives to serve JESUS CHRIST, and to be obedient to GOD The FATHER.
We continue in the book of John 1:1-5 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. The same was in the beginning with God. All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made. In him was life; and the life was the light of men. And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not. This world is filled with darkness and has been since sin originated on the earth, through the fall of Adam and Eve in the garden. The darkness continues today in the world and is more prevalent and more visible because we have entered what LORD JESUS CHRIST calls “the beginning of sorrows” in the book of Matthew chapter twenty-four. We are about to enter into the great tribulation period; therefore, it is important for you to know WHERE you desire to spend your eternal destination. IT IS IMPORTANT FOR YOU TO KNOW WHERE YOUR ONLY HOPE COMES FROM. Our time on this earth is short, and we all need to be prepared. AMEN!
JESUS CHRIST is the Word made flesh! This is why we read our bibles – so we can partake of The Word, our daily bread, our living water! Every word in the Holy Bible is HOLY GHOST inspired – men wrote the words, but they were inspired by The HOLY GHOST to write them. AMEN! This is not in ALL bibles – the King James Version is the only bible directly translated from the original Hebrew and Greek tongues. Other translations came after the KJV and they have been edited many times while adding to and taking from The LORD GOD’S Word. It is important to consider your source when studying the Holy Bible because that is another way the enemy of our souls, that “old dragon” will attempt to deceive everyone he can reach.
JESUS CHRIST was foreordained before the foundation of the world! We read this in the book of 1Peter 1:19-21 But with the precious blood of Christ, as of a lamb without blemish and without spot: Who verily was foreordained before the foundation of the world, but was manifest in these last times for you, Who by him do believe in God, that raised him up from the dead, and gave him glory; that your faith and hope might be in God. AMEN! The Divine Plan of ALMIGHTY GOD is that JESUS CHRIST was born into the genealogy line of the Jewish people. This genealogy line began with Abraham, then Abram, who was called by ALMIGHTY GOD when he was 75-years old to leave his home and go to where The LORD GOD led him. We read in the book of Genesis 12:1-3 Now the LORD had said unto Abram, Get thee out of thy country, and from thy kindred, and from thy father’s house, unto a land that I will shew thee: And I will make of thee a great nation, and I will bless thee, and make thy name great; and thou shalt be a blessing: And I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee: and in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed. If we continue in the book of Luke 1:26-42 we read the account of the birth of JESUS CHRIST, whose father was Joseph, also in the genealogy line of the Jewish people. If we go into the book of Matthew chapter one, this account of the genealogy line of JESUS CHRIST is provided to us. We read in Matthew 1:1 The book of the generation of Jesus Christ, the son of David, the son of Abraham. JESUS CHRIST was born into this world through the Divine Plan of ALMIGHTY GOD! AMEN!
Before LORD JESUS began His earthly ministry, He was baptized in the wilderness, in the river Jordan, by John the baptist. We read the account of John the baptist preaching repentance and preparing the way for JESUS CHRIST. In Matthew 3:11 JohnThe Baptist STATES: I indeed baptize you with water unto repentance: but he that cometh after me is mightier than I , whose shoes I am not worthy to bear: he shall baptize you with the Holy Ghost, and with fire: HALLUELUJAH AND PRAISE YOU, LORD JESUS CHRIST! When LORD JESUS was baptized, He was fully immersed in the water, and is our example to be immersed in the water like He was and not sprinkled. We are to be part of His body, the true Body of CHRIST. Many people do not preach on the importance of baptism once we are saved and realize that if it was NOT important, JESUS CHRIST would not have been baptized. ONCE WE ARE SAVED WE NEED TO BE BAPTIZED – YouTube
We read in the book of Matthew 4:17 From that time Jesus began to preach, and to say, Repent: for the kingdom of heaven is at hand. ALMIGHTY GOD has blessed us with His precious gift of JESUS CHRIST, our hope, and does not want any of us to perish. We read in 2Peter 3:9 The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance. However, The LORD GOD has given all of us a free-will choice and we need to make a commitment to serve JESUS CHRIST or serve our own flesh, the world, and the devil. Either way, IT IS OUR FREE WILL CHOICE AND WE WILL HAVE NO EXCUSE ON JUDGMENT DAY!
The LORD GOD has created all of us in His image, but only those of us who are saved and serve Him through JESUS CHRIST are considered His children.
Before JESUS CHRIST began His earthly ministry and after He was baptized, He was then tempted by Satan. This was allowed by ALMIGHTY GOD so His SON could be tried by the enemy of our souls and be victorious! We read this account in the book of Matthew chapter four verses 1-11. You may wonder how was the devil able to get away with tempting JESUS CHRIST? Well, He came to this earth as a man, He was in the flesh, only without sin. Yet, He experienced the same pain, the daily things that we go through, and the temptations as well. Again, He was without sin, the perfect Lamb of GOD! It is important to realize that each time the tempter came to JESUS CHRIST He responded with the Word of ALMIGHTY GOD! That is the weapon that we need – THE SWORD OF THE SPIRIT – because it is spiritual warfare and JESUS CHRIST is our example. Continuing in Hebrews 4:14-15 Seeing then that we have a great high priest, that is passed into the heavens, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold fast our profession. For we have not an high priest which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities; but was in all points tempted like as we are, yet without sin.
The perfect Lamb of GOD, who freely laid His life down for all of us. JESUS CHRIST IS OUR HOPE and all we need to do is accept this precious and priceless gift of grace from ALMIGHTY GOD! JESUS CHRIST conquered sin and death for us, but we must repent and commit our lives to serve Him if we are to partake of His gift of forgiveness, salvation, and eternal life. In Romans 10:9 GOD’S WORD STATES: That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. AMEN! And we are also to be baptized because it is an outward sign of what is going on within us spiritually and we are professing that we are part of the Body of CHRIST. It is important to realize that JESUS CHRIST is the fulfillment of the Old Testament. In Matthew 5:17-18 JESUS CHRIST STATES: Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfill. For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled. The law is still in existence and we are to continue to acknowledge and obey the commandments of ALMIGHTY GOD; however, we cannot be saved by the law. The law represents “legalism” and there are many people today that are still following the law in Israel instead of the BLESSED HOPE of JESUS CHRIST. Some Jewish people are still awaiting for their Messiah. In addition to the Jews, there are many people who follow legalism, their “dead religions” that are tax-exempt organizations controlled by board members. They may teach from the bible but they also have their own doctrines and were founded by men, not JESUS CHRIST!
Indeed, our hope is JESUS CHRIST and we need to realize there is no such thing on this earth as a “good person” without the shed blood of JESUS CHRIST to cover us. Your “good works” will not save you or earn you extra points. In Romans 3:23 GOD’S WORD STATES: For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God; And in Romans 3:24 Being justified freely by his grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus: Realize that without JESUS CHRIST and without being saved that you are condemned to hell for eternity. Our time on this earth is short folks and it is time for you to make a decision. You cannot have it both ways! HAVE WISDOM AND GRASP ONTO JESUS CHRIST WHO IS OUR HOPE!
MESSAGE TWO – 03-20-21
THAT OLD SERPENT, THE Devil
Revelation 20:1-3 And I saw an angel come down from heaven, having the key of the bottomless pit and a great chain in his hand. 2. And he laid hold on the dragon, that old serpent, which is the Devil, and Satan, and bound him a thousand years. 3. And cast him into the bottomless pit, and shut him up, and set a seal upon him, that he should deceive the nations no more, till the thousand years should be fulfilled: and after that he must be loosed a little season. Ah, yes that old serpent the devil, who is responsible for originating sin in heaven when he was Lucifer, and decided that he wanted to exalt himself and be equal with ALMIGHTY GOD! From the beginning of The LORD GOD’S Holy Word in the book of Genesis, when we read the account of the devil influencing the serpent who beguiled the woman in the garden until right now, Lucifer is now Satan, a fallen angel, who knows that he is condemned to eternity in hell. He knows that he can never be forgiven, and he knows that he has but a short time.
Revelation 12:12 Therefore rejoice, ye heavens, and ye that dwell in them. Woe to the inhabiters of the earth and of the sea! for the devil is come down unto you, having great wrath, because he knoweth that he hath but a short time.
Since the devil knows he has but a short time, his desire is to take as many people with him as possible. He is working overtime folks and we all need to be on guard. Just as he deceived the woman in the garden with his subtilty, he can do the same with ANYONE! This is why it is important for everyone to consider RIGHT NOW where they want to spend eternity, because we are all going somewhere, folks. NOW IS THE TIME TO DECIDE, BEFORE IT IS TOO LATE FOR YOU.
Romans 3:23 For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God, Being justified freely by his grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus.
We are ALL sinners and are condemned to hell without being saved and covered by the blood of JESUS CHRIST. This means that we need to repent and turn from our sins – believe on JESUS CHRIST and commit our lives to serve Him – and be obedient to The LORD GOD throughout our lives. The more we trust in ALMIGHTY GOD through our relationship with JESUS CHRIST, the more we will be spiritually prepared as the world falls deeper into darkness and the schemes of the devil become more subtle and more difficult to discern. True wisdom comes only from The HOLY SPIRIT, who teaches us all things, and this gift is only manifested through those who are serving JESUS CHRIST!
There are many false teachers, preachers, prophets, pastors, whatever, that are twisting The LORD GOD’S Holy Word to suit their own wicked agenda and leading many people astray, including those that claim to be saved, and claim to be “Christians”. One of the many false doctrines that scratch itching ears is telling the masses that they are “little gods”. They pervert Scripture and take it out of context, just like that old serpent did back in the garden.
Genesis 3:4-5 And the serpent said unto the woman, Ye shall not surely die: 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.
Well, that certainly was enough to capture the woman’s attention and take her focus off of ALMIGHTY GOD and the warning that He had given to she and her husband as we read in Genesis 2:16-17 And the LORD God commanded the man, saying, Of every tree of the garden thou mayest freely eat: But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt not eat of it: for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die. She completely forgot about this instruction from The LORD GOD and decided to rely on her own intellect. She reasoned that the tree was pleasant to look at and pondered the words of the serpent, “… and ye shall be as gods…”.
And of course when Adam and Eve ate of the forbidden fruit and did not fall over dead, they may have wondered why nothing happened. What they did NOT realize at that moment was that they had fallen from grace and were spiritually dead. Then when their son, Cain, murdered his brother, Abel, reality may have kicked in! They soon discovered that they were not “as gods” like the serpent falsely proclaimed they would be. When The LORD GOD uses this term in His Word, He is speaking about those who are not truly serving Him, and lifting up themselves, living in their flesh, and following the ways of darkness. As we read in Isaiah 14:13-14 For thou hast said in thine heart, I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God: I will sit also upon the mount of the congregation, in the sides of the north: I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will be like the most High. The devil, who was then Lucifer, wanted to be “as gods” and lift himself up. He soon found out that would NEVER HAPPEN when he was cast out of heaven and condemned to walk to and fro in the earth until he is cast into the lake of fire for all eternity! We also read in the book of Psalms 82:5-7 They know not, neither will they understand; they walk on in darkness: all the foundations of the earth are out of course. I have said, Ye are gods; and all of you are children of the most High. But ye shall die like men, and fall like one of the princes. AMEN! The LORD GOD is judging His people who have turned from Him and not only worship false gods, but lift themselves up as well, seeing themselves “as gods”.
When LORD JESUS CHRIST walked the earth during His ministry, He had many encounters with the “religious elite” , the Jews who did not recognize Him as the SON of GOD and were threatened and jealous of Him. They were spiritually blinded and desired to lift up themselves and be admired by others. They saw themselves “as gods” and this is what LORD JESUS was speaking about in John 10:33 The Jews answered him, saying, For a good work we stone thee not; but for blasphemy; and because that thou, being a man, makest thyself God. JESUS CHRIST had declared that He and His Father were one (John 10:30) and the “religious elite” and the Jews that followed them instead of LORD JESUS were ready to stone Him for saying this.
We continue in John 10:34-36 Jesus answered them, Is it not written in your law, I said, Ye are gods? If he called them gods, unto whom the word of God came, and the scripture cannot be broken; Say ye of him, whom the Father hath sanctified, and sent into the world, Thou blasphemest; because I said, I am the Son of God? LORD JESUS makes it very clear when He states, ” Is it not written in your law…”. So they are following the law (dead religion) instead of following the One who came to fulfill the law. Apparently, that old serpent had influenced the hearts of the “religious elite” as well because they invited the devil into their hearts. We also see this going on today throughout the apostate, falling away “church” who prefer to have their ears scratched, who prefer to be entertained, who prefer to be flattered, who prefer to ignore the ONLY TRUTH of the Holy Word of ALMIGHTY GOD and focus on the garbage that the devil portrays to them as something appealing. Remember that the devil feeds off of our flesh; therefore, the more we rely on our own intellect, vain worldly traditions (global warming), the current political agendas, the fancy titles after a person’s name, or the amount of money in their bank account, the farther away we will be led into darkness and will stumble. IT IS TIME TO STAND YOUR GROUND, CAST OUT THE OLD SERPENT, AND CLING TO JESUS CHRIST LIKE NEVER BEFORE BECAUSE HE IS OUR ONLY HOPE FOR ETERNAL LIFE. IT IS TIME TO PAY ATTENTION IF YOU HAVE BEEN ASLEEP UP UNTIL NOW!
MESSAGE ONE – 03-13-21
IN THE BEGINNING
Genesis 1:1 In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth. Today’s message will provide a foundation of the Holy Word of ALMIGHTY GOD and we will begin at the beginning! The LORD GOD instructed me to do this because there may be some people who are newly saved, or unsaved, and need the milk of the Word before the meat of the Word. 1Peter 2:2 As newborn babes, desire the sincere milk of the word, that ye may grow thereby:
The LORD GOD was here before the beginning of everything, because He created EVERYTHING! He is omniscient, omnipotent, and omnipresent. The LORD GOD manifested JESUS CHRIST in the flesh when He came here to this earth as a man, so He could suffer and die on the cross to be our perfect sacrifice for our sins. In 1John 3:18 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.
So, GOD The FATHER and GOD The SON share the same HOLY SPIRIT and they are all ONE! PRAISE YOU, FATHER GOD! What a beautiful gift The LORD GOD has blessed us with. We continue in the book of Genesis, The LORD GOD formed male and female, with the first man being Adam. He formed him from the dust of the ground, breathed into his nostrils the breath of life, and man became a living soul. And The LORD planted the garden in Eden. Adam had everything he needed there, all he had to do was tend the garden. And then The LORD GOD formed the woman from one of Adam’s ribs as he slept. So, male and female, dwelling in the garden, and covered with the glory of ALMIGHTY GOD! They were naked and because they were covered with the glory of ALMIGHTY GOD and because there was no sin at that time, they did not even realize that they were naked. Now The LORD GOD had instructed them that they could eat of any of the fruit of the trees EXCEPT for the one that had the fruit of the knowledge of good and evil. He instructed them if you eat this, ye shall surely die, as we read in Genesis 2:17 But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt not eat of it: for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die.
SO IN COMES THE SERPENT… The serpent allowed itself to be influenced by Satan, who used to be Lucifer, who was cast out of heaven with a third of the angels that followed him because Lucifer wanted to be equal with ALMIGHTY GOD! So for that reason, Now they are sentenced to wander to and fro through the earth until they are all cast into hell for eternity.That is why Satan is called the prince of this world, the prince of the air, and he is also the father of lies who poses as an angel of light. So, here we are! The serpent allowed itself to be influenced by Satan, and he approached the woman while she was in the garden, as we read in Genesis 3:1-3 Now the serpent was more subtil than any beast of the field which the LORD God had made. And he said unto the woman, Yea, hath God said, Ye shall not eat of every tree of the garden? And the woman said unto the serpent, We may eat of the fruit of the trees of the garden: But of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden, God hath said, Ye shall not eat of it, neither shall ye touch it, lest ye die. So the woman clearly knew what The LORD GOD had instructed she and her husband to do regarding this tree. Of course, that is not good enough for Satan, so he continues in his subtilty as we read in Genesis 3:4-5 And the serpent said unto the woman, Ye shall not surely die: 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. So the serpent, influenced by Satan, the devil, placed enough doubt into the woman’s mind that she reconsidered what The LORD GOD had instructed she and her husband not to do. Ye shall be as little gods? THAT IS FLATTERY! She decided to rely on her intellect instead of relying, trusting, and obeying ALMIGHTY GOD! So Satan achieved his objective! If this would not have taken place, sin would not have existed, and man would not have fallen from grace. When Satan put that doubt into the woman’s mind she allowed her flesh to override the instruction from ALMIGHTY GOD.
Just like we do today, folks. The LORD GOD created male and female, and He created man to be head of the household. That is His order – not to be a slave-master, but to be in charge of the household. This is a huge problem today because there are a lot of men that have rescinded their authority, not only in the churches, but also in the household, with their families, and they allow the woman to take over. THAT IS NOT THE WAY THE LORD GOD INTENDED IT TO BE, FOLKS! That is important to remember. It does not really matter what WE think, it matters what ALMIGHTY GOD says about it. Now the eyes of Adam and Eve were opened because they had the knowledge of good and evil. THEY FELL FROM GRACE! Their eyes were opened and they realized they were naked and they were ashamed. Just like today, people tend to blame one another instead of taking the blame upon themselves. So Adam listened to his wife instead of ALMIGHTY GOD, which is a BIG NO NO! No one should ever put anyone before ALMIGHTY GOD, no matter who it is! The man put things out of order. Adam listened to his wife instead of ALMIGHTY GOD, and he blamed the woman. The woman who had the intellect and the free-will choice to choose wisely and listen to The LORD GOD’S instruction and tell that serpent to “be gone” did not do that. She decided to listen to what the serpent put into her mind, but she still blamed the serpent.
From this point on, man is cursed and JESUS CHRIST is the only Way out of this situation. So we are constantly at war, SPIRITUAL WAR. Those of us who serve JESUS CHRIST are at enmity with the devil because he is cast out of heaven and is a fallen angel condemned to eternity in the fires of hell with the one-third of the angels that followed him. He can never be forgiven – NONE of them can ever be forgiven – and they desire to deceive as many people as they can so they can follow them into the pit of hell for all eternity. Satan is counting on the fact that man desires to lift himself up, to stay in his flesh, to pat himself on the back because of all the college degrees and fancy titles he has after his name. Because of all the billions of dollars he has in his bank account. Because of all the celebrities and “well-to-do” people he associates with. People are relying on their flesh more than they are relying on ALMIGHTY GOD today. This is nothing new – it has been going on since sin began, as we read in Scripture. It is very important to realize that we have no wisdom without ALMIGHTY GOD! True wisdom is having complete faith in The LORD GOD’S plan for our lives and relying on His guidance.
We continue with Genesis 3:16-18. So, this is why everything has been cursed! THE GROUND HAS BEEN CURSED. So now we have to work in order to eat. We continue with Genesis 3:19-22. So when The LORD GOD is speaking in verse 22, “the man is become as one of us”, The LORD GOD is speaking to JESUS CHRIST and to The HOLY SPIRIT. JESUS CHRIST was foreordained before the foundation of the world, and we read in the beginning in Genesis 1:2 And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters. So, The LORD GOD is addressing the Trinity. That is why it is important to realize there is GOD The FATHER, GOD The SON, GOD The HOLY SPIRIT, three in ONE. So because The LORD GOD knew that now man had the knowledge of good and evil, He did not want Adam and Eve to eat of the tree of life because that would have been a curse that could not have been undone. We continue in Genesis 3:23-24. Man was cast out of the garden because of their fall from grace and that sin is passed down to all of us. ALL OF US!
The only way out of our fall from grace is through the shed blood of JESUS CHRIST! JESUS CHRIST was foreordained before the foundation of the world. He came to this earth as GOD made flesh – THE WORD MADE FLESH, WHO DWELT AMONG US! He shed His precious blood, died an excruciatingly painful death on the cross for all of us. When He died on that cross and said, “it is finished”, sin and death were conquered, for those of us who are wise enough to repent, and commit our lives to serve Him. To BELIEVE, that He is who He says He is, to BELIEVE that GOD The FATHER raised Him from the dead on the third day, and that He WILL RETURN some day for those who serve Him! THIS IS IMPORTANT TO REMEMBER! The LORD GOD has lovingly provided us our life manual, the Holy Bible, which is our love letter from ALMIGHTY GOD, so we can stay close and learn about the precious gift of grace that He has given us! ALL WE HAVE TO DO IS ACCEPT IT. All we have to do is admit that we are condemned to hell without the blood of JESUS CHRIST to cover us. It is important to realize that repentance is NOT about saying a sinner’s prayer – it is about having a desire to turn from your sins, to turn from your old ways, and be obedient to ALMIGHTY GOD.
