The Lord’s Sabbath
The following material contains more than five hundred references to scripture and should be read with the King James bible in hand. This letter faithfully examines the arguments used against the fourth commandment and briefly reviews the truth of the process through which the first day of the week replaced the seventh. The rejection of the Lord’s sabbath is not a new thing, as it is written, “there is no new thing under the sun.” (Ecclesiastes 1:9).
Underlying the religious hostility against the sabbath day is the unconverted man’s natural loathing of having to fake obedience to an unseen God, providing sharp contrast between real servants of Christ who separate from the world (2nd Corinthians 6:17) and world-pleasing phonies (Galatians 1:10) who quite naturally dismiss as “cults” (Acts 28:22) all Christians not participating in the denominational circus (1st Corinthians 1:10-13). Religious “professionals,” of course, deeply resent the kind of absolute belief in the bible (John 17:8,14) that makes them irrelevant (Matthew 15:14); although the great bulk of modern “Christianity” effeminately follows such compromised men (Psalm 118:8), leaving a landscape littered with apostate incorporated tax-exempt “church” franchises variously expressing their contempt of God’s word by collecting tithes while entertaining themselves in faking “tongues,” “going back to the Greek,” and waving the federal flag (Hebrews 11:16).
American seminaries have not produced God-fearing men who tremble at God’s word and preach accordingly for a hundred years. The churches are unconcerned about the beliefs and motives of those that teach doctrine to the teachers of doctrine, and do not seem to care that these institutions of spiritual death are run by wolves in sheep’s clothing who think the gospel of Jesus Christ involves justifying Rome (Proverbs 17:15) and attacking the King James bible. Failing to grasp that Satan is in the religious business, Christian parents are oblivious to the war raging, and naively now send their precious children to the same “Christian” schools where the devil sends his professors.
The aspiring preacher who unwisely seeks academic recognition and credentials will necessarily submit himself to a process that systematically demands he give up his childhood trust in the bible in exchange for the sad ability to regurgitate denominational dogma and speak a little Greek. By the time he acquires his state incorporated pastorship he will have lost desire to read his “new version” of the bible, which, due to his training, he no longer believes anyway; but he will be happy to recommend his alma mater to anyone in “his flock” who wants to preach, and so on it goes. This is the dismal reality of government sanctioned orthodoxy.
“Christians” who reject the seventh day sabbath fall into two broad categories, one imagining that it keeps the commandments, and the other bragging that it does NOT keep them as proof of its spiritual maturity. If forced to discuss the issue, both camps begin babbling about “the traditions of the early church” (of which they are completely ignorant), or that the fourth commandment is “ceremonial,” and so on. The “tradition” (Mark 7:9) of keeping “Sunday” is justified by numerous inane Jesuit anecdotes and fairy tales, which, in the interest of brevity, will mostly not be examined here, with the exception of a small sampling to demonstrate the extent to which biblical doctrine and common sense are abandoned in favor of rabid defense of a cunningly devised “church position.”
A Baptist doctor wrote a railing letter to a friend of mine emphatically declaring that Americans could not keep the sabbath because it “. . . begins six hours earlier in Jerusalem than it does here. . . .” (I saved a copy of the doctor’s letter for those who would find this hard to believe.) While the doctor is perfectly correct, that a biblical day begins “in the evening” (Leviticus 23:32), he had hoped that by dazzling us with his knowledge of time zones, it might not be noticed that his reducing the issue to “Jerusalem” eliminates the Jews on the Eastern Front, as well as the fact that Israel, in better days, extended as far east as the Euphrates river (Genesis 15:18)! This same Baptist doctor insists in his sermons that a man is in danger of hellfire if he “goes fishing on Sunday,” so the question should be asked, does he mean Sunday “in Jerusalem,” or “Sunday” where the fish are biting in Pensacola Florida? The doctor’s dishonesty in this desperate argument is obvious and typical.
A stock argument against the fourth commandment is that “It doesn’t make any difference what day we keep because the calendars have been confused and nobody really knows what day it is.” Although this fantasy is routinely accepted by scoffers and religious hypocrites alike, the simple fact is, that regardless of past calendar systems, or their utilization in referencing history, the weekly rotation of seven days is completely unaffected. The Jews had it right a mere two thousand years ago, as confirmed by the Lord himself (Mark 1:21; 6:2; etc.), and, of course, the Jews still know what day it is, as does any Gentile not on drugs. The same people who propose this absurdity invariably also insist that “We keep the FIRST day of the week because that’s when Jesus rose from the dead.” These “delusions” (Isaiah 66:4) require the simultaneous beliefs that (1) with respect to the sabbath, everybody in the world lost track of the day of the week, and that (2) with respect to observing Sunday this does not pose a problem!
If a man’s authority is actually the word of God, then he knows that Jesus did NOT rise from the dead “Sunday” morning, but late “Saturday,” between “the ninth hour” (3:00 p.m.) and evening, which was seventy two hours after his burial at the same time of the day “three days” before (Matthew 27:46,57,63; Mark 15:34,42). The Lord said,
An evil and adulterous generation seeketh after a sign; and there shall no sign be given to it, but the sign of the prophet Jonas: for as Jonas was three days and three nights in the whale’s belly; so shall the Son of man be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth. [Matthew 12:39-40]
The “Friday afternoon to Sunday morning” scenario is a Satanic hoax and (as should be expected) is supported by numerous Satanic explanations supporting the lie that “three days and three nights” (the only sign given by the Lord to that wicked generation) really does not MEAN “three days and three nights.” False churches fall for the deceit because they simply do not believe God, and have an abiding desire to just get along with the world. Paul said:
. . . let God be true, but every man a liar; as it is written, That thou mightest be justified in thy sayings, and mightest overcome when thou art judged. [Romans 3:4]
Confidence in this viewpoint is the basis for the preaching and exhortation that follow, which infuriates some people (Galatians 4:16), although that is not the intent here.
Most Christians seem to be aware that the Lord was crucified on “the preparation” for the sabbath day (Luke 23:54; Mark 15:42; Matthew 27:62), however, the sabbath in question was not the weekly sabbath, but the “passover,” a “high sabbath” (John 19:14,31). This day is not reckoned as a day of the week, but as “the fourteenth day of the first month” (Leviticus 23:5). As obedient Jews were making passover preparations at home (Exodus 12:5,6,11,46; John 1:29) the priests were preparing the slaughter (John 19:6) of the real “lamb of God.” Jesus Christ was in fact the passover Lamb that passover (1st Corinthians 5:7) and “Good Friday” was neither “good” OR “Friday.” The “churches” ignore this truth, and the power contained in it, because they prefer their bankrupt “Sunday” traditions. (Don’t go running to your imitation bible, to prove “your version” of Mark 16:9 contradicts this, because you will only prove you don’t have a bible, and you wouldn’t believe it if you did.)
Mark 16:9 in the God-breathed King James does not state that Jesus was “RAISED” on the first day of the week, but that Jesus “was risen” when he “appeared” to Mary Magdalene on the first day of the week. When Mary got there early “Sunday,” he was already “risen!” That is, he was alive from the grave. This verse is changed in ALL the “corrupt” bibles (2nd Corinthians 2:17) to say, Jesus “ROSE” on the first day, or “after he HAD risen on the first day,” or “HAVING risen on the first day.”
These false “bibles,” produced by the same deceived and ungodly men, for the same ungodly purpose, are unanimous against themselves in proving that none of them is the word of God. (If English Grammar is not your favorite subject, you may think these different “versions” of Mark 16:9 say the same thing, but they do not.) The words, “was risen,” declare what state the Lord was in when he appeared to Mary Magdalene: they say nothing about WHEN the lord was “RAISED.” The point of Mark 16:9 is to declare that the Lord “appeared” to Mary Magdalene, and the point of the first half of that verse is to declare (1) when, and (2) in what state, the Lord “appeared” to her.
The standard claim made is that Jesus “was raised” from the dead “Sunday” morning, and invariably followed with a vague reference to Mark 16:9 to give this Satanic deception the appearance of scriptural foundation, yet the sabbath day has nothing to do with “resurrection,” but “rest” after “creation” (Genesis 2:2-3; Hebrews 4:4). This argument to justify Sunday is a bald-faced lie supported by a con job.
There is no factual basis for the commonly expressed pretense that the sabbath day is unknown. When the Lord confounded the languages (Genesis 11:7,9) he rendered the word for the seventh day in several languages as a variation of “sabbath,” as, for example, “sabado” in Spanish, which is “Saturday” in the pagan English vernacular. Four thousand years later the calendars still begin with “Sunday” and go to “Saturday,” one through seven, in any language.
There are always those in the milky crowd, having been taught that “getting people saved is the main thing,” who, at this point, try to change the subject by asking, “What does this have to do with salvation?” The answer, of course, is that it has to do with “sound doctrine” (Titus 2:1), “truth” (John 8:32), “perfection” (Hebrews 6:1), and getting off the “milk” and onto the “meat” (1st Corinthians 3:1-2); all of which are quite foreign and distasteful to those involved in the present apostasy.
For when for the time ye ought to be teachers, ye have need that one teach you again which be the first principles of the oracles of God; and are become such as have need of milk, and not of strong meat. For every one that useth milk is unskilful in the word of righteousness: for he is a babe. [Hebrews 5:12-13]
“The main thing” for a mature Christian led of the Holy Spirit is to glorify Jesus Christ (John 16:14). (“Getting people saved” is only part of that “main thing,” and regressing to a discussion about “salvation” does not excuse an ongoing life of “rebellion” (1st Samuel 15:23).)
In dodging the fourth commandment, assertions are routinely made that the commandments and the entire old testament have simply been “done away with.” (Many Christians under fire from verses contradicting their opinions, have admitted to me their belief that the whole bible has been “done away with,” and that being “really spiritual” we should “just believe our feelings” (Proverbs 14:12) or “follow our hearts” (Proverbs 28:26).) The real issue here is obedience, but no one intends to be reminded that he is a religious hypocrite, so the word “obedience” is rarely mentioned these days in religious circles. Paul declared in Hebrews 5:9, “And being made perfect, [Jesus] became the author of eternal salvation unto all them that obey him. . . .” Paul stated that his purpose was “to make the Gentiles obedient, by word and deed. . . .” (Romans 15:18) (See also: 1st Peter 4:17; Ephesians 5:6; 2nd Thessalonians 1:8; 3:14; Romans 6:16; & Matthew 7:21.)
The prophet Samuel said, “. . . to obey is better than sacrifice, and to hearken than the fat of rams.” (1st Samuel 15:22) Saul said in verse 24, “I have sinned: for I have transgressed the commandment of the Lord, and thy words: because I feared the people, and obeyed their voice.” Today, as then, the Lord’s words are easily ignored and all the power is still in the “voice of the people” (See: 1st Samuel 8:7). Saul was a king, and Pilate was a governor and judge, and they both, like any natural man, feared the disapproval of men more than being naked on main street. (Proverbs 29:25) This is the human condition.
Obedience is not a matter of following the crowd, but rather, it is the Lord’s will that the issue hinges on “that which is written” (1st Corinthians 4:6 & Matthew 4:10). In the new testament the Lord said:
He that is of God heareth God’s words: ye therefore hear them not, because ye are not of God. [John 8:47]
going beyond that plain statement, he also said:
My mother and my brethren are these which hear the word of God, and do it. [Luke 8:21]
This exact issue was declared in the old testament:
. . . they hear thy words, but they will not do them: for with their mouth they shew much love, but their heart goeth after their covetousness. [Ezekiel 33:31]
With their mouth they say, “It’s all love!” but they reject the true love of God, as the Apostle John made clear:
By this we know that we love the children of God, when we love God, and keep his commandments. For this is the love of God, that we keep his commandments: and his commandments are not grievous. [1st John 5:2-3]
As John said, the Lord also said, in John 14:15,
If ye love me, keep my commandments.
But, as Ezekiel said, “they will not,” as they imagine themselves to be the spiritual center of the universe.
In the doctrine of “works,” there has been a thorough bungling by “lukewarm” churches (Revelation 3:14-16) whose works betray their condition more truthfully than their opinions of themselves (2nd Corinthians 10:12). Works are only the things that are done by faith, or lack of faith. It is as much rebellion against God to refuse to do what he commanded, as it is to do what he said “thou shalt not” do, as it is written: “Therefore to him that knoweth to do good, and doeth it not, to him it is sin.” (James 4:17)
It is repeatedly given in the new testament to both keep the commandments and do good works, but there is a sick, twisted, and devilish doctrine preached now that if a man does anything the Lord commanded, he will be “making the work at the cross of no effect.” Satan’s “ministers” create this perversion from Galatians, chapter five, hoping no one actually reads it and notices the subject is of a man being “circumcised” (verse three) and “justified by the law” (verse four) which “law” was entirely “contained in ordinances” (Ephesians 2:15) in the first place. (The devil boldly misapplied scripture to the Lord (Matthew 4:5-6) and his “deceitful workers” (2nd Corinthians 11:13-15) will certainly not hesitate to try it on you.)
Modern apostate Christianity bears little resemblance to the real thing, and tries to conceal its emptiness by demonstration of fake spiritual gifts (“holy rolling,” “holy barking,” “holy dancing,” “slaying in the spirit,” mass “tongues,” etc.), and conducting grotesque “worship services” that blatantly mock God (1st Corinthians 14:27-28, 40). Defiantly ignoring biblical doctrine and judgement (1st Corinthians 5:12-13), these dens of hypocrisy, tolerate “sodomites” (Leviticus 18:22; Romans 1:24-27 1st Kings 14:24), “effeminate” (1st Corinthians 6:9), “fornicators” (5:11-13), “idolaters” (10:7), alcoholics (5:11), pedophiles, and those who suppose “that gain is godliness” (1st Timothy 6:5) in the congregation, behind the pulpit, and running the day care (1st Corinthians 5:6; Galatians 5:9). These peacocks delude themselves with their “love” (John 14:23) and “faith” (James 2:20) and consistently justify their own disobedience by accusing those who obey God of “depending on works.”
He that justifieth the wicked, and he that condemneth the just, even they both are abomination to the Lord. [Proverbs 17:15]
Those who willfully disobey the Lord are easily persuaded that anyone who obeys him must be wrong because of it!
All of the “denominations” have some unbiblical thing that they think we ought to DO, such as: abstain from wine and shave the beard (Baptists), or NOT shave the beard (Mennonites); abstain from meat some of the time (Catholic), or all of the time (Adventists); participate in the Christmas party (nearly everybody including atheists); tithe (every denomination on the planet); and so on, ad nauseam. Legions of government “popes” across the country lecture on why folks ought to participate in their pet work; while routinely discouraging those other works they don’t subscribe to by simply labeling them “works.” For example, “We don’t believe in water baptism because that’s works, and we aren’t saved by water!”
Now, of course, water baptism is “a work,” but more to the point, it is obedience. The “house of Israel” was given water baptism “unto repentance” (Matthew 3:11; Acts 2:36-38) and when the gospel went out to the Gentiles they were given water baptism for “the answer of a good conscience” (1st Peter 3:20,21), but they were BOTH given water baptism, even though nobody gets SAVED by water.
“Works” is not a dirty word! (Your opinion on this doesn’t matter at all.) In Matthew 5:16, the Lord said, “Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your father which is in heaven.” Again, in Matthew 16:27, the Lord said, “For the Son of man shall come in the glory of his Father with his angels; and then he shall reward every man according to his works.” Christians don’t do works “to get saved,” but because they ARE saved, and were told to do them, by someone entitled to tell them what to do:
And why call ye me, Lord, Lord, and do not the things which I say? [Luke 6:46]
The role of “religion” is to get its membership to effectively ignore the word of God through application of “private interpretation” (2nd Peter 1:20) in one or a small number of proof-texts, forcing contradiction with the numerous doctrinal scriptures that throw light on the error of the “religion.” Observe the following first two words:
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. [2nd Timothy 3:16]
The trained deceivers who, when convenient to them, preach the new Satanic gospel of “no works,” and support it through a selected straining of scripture by Paul, make use of the doctrine that SALVATION is not of works, but is a gift of Jesus Christ. They take a man to this context, of “receiving salvation,” and let nature take its course concerning the sabbath day. (Do you see how that works?) The issue is, however, “What will you do with the rest of your life after you received that salvation?”
. . . faith, if it hath not works, is dead, being alone. Yea, a man may say, Thou hast faith, and I have works: shew me thy faith without thy works, and I will shew thee my faith by my works. . . . wilt thou know, O vain man, that faith without works is dead? [James 2:17-20]
Sabbath haters consistently ignore this truth, and tend to spiritualize with something like, “If we do works we deny faith. We’re FRRREEEEEE in Christ!” (See: Romans 6:18,22 & 1st Peter 2:16.) It is written of them:
While they promise them liberty, they themselves are the servants of corruption. . . . [2nd Peter 2:19]
In James, chapter 2, verse 22, it is written of Abraham, “Seest thou how faith wrought with his works, and by works was faith made perfect?” (James did not say, “by works was GRACE made perfect” or, “by works were YOU made perfect.”) This is given again in verse 26, “For as the body without the spirit is dead, so faith without works is dead also.” You can SAY you have faith, but you won’t bear good fruit when your faith “is dead.” (See: Hebrews 10:24; 13:21; Revelation 22:12; 2nd Corinthians 9:8; Colossians 1:9-10; 2nd Thessalonians 2:16-17; Matthew 7:21; 2nd Timothy 2:21; John 8:39; 14:12)
The above verses do NOT teach “salvation by works,” but they certainly teach “works.” The gift of salvation, on the other hand, comes by grace, through faith in Jesus Christ, period (Ephesians 2:8-9). “Church of Christ” elders, using Acts 2:38 as the gentile plan of salvation, teach that a man gets saved by getting himself WET (reading “water” into every verse in the bible that says “baptism”), and yet accuse sabbath keepers of “WORKS,” who, being already saved, keep the commandments in response to that salvation, exactly as written (John 14:15).
In the same blind way, deceivers and milky Christians reference Titus 3:5 to show that men are not SAVED by works, but refuse to read on to verse 8 where the servant of Christ is told to “be careful to maintain good works.” They go to the passage concerning “salvation” in Ephesians 2:8-9, but always miss the verse on “WORKS” which follows immediately thereafter, which deals with how we “walk:”
For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them. [v. 10]
The author of verse 9 in Ephesians 2, also wrote verse 10. The same Holy Spirit that gave Galatians also gave James. The purpose of ALL the books of the new testament is that a man would not be led to error through the calculated wresting of one “proof-text,” and get totally whacked. People who have a problem with works and faith, simply cannot read! James does not “add works to salvation,” or “do away with faith;” just as Paul does not do away with works for the perfection of faith. Contradictions exist only in the imaginations of carnal men who want to claim their “dead faith” came from Paul. The bible is perfectly consistent that salvation is “by grace through faith,” not works; yet faith is “made perfect” by works, and faith without works is “dead” faith. (If you disagree, you are simply “a liar” (Romans 3:4).
The Lord blasted the Israelite religious leaders who, in their stubborn and foolish wickedness, were exactly as their Gentile counterparts today: “Ye do err, not knowing the scriptures. . . .” (Matthew 22:29) They do not fight “the good fight” of 1st Timothy 6:12, they fight AGAINST God. The true warfare is in “bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ” (2nd Corinthians 10:5), who has in “readiness to revenge all disobedience” (v. 6).
The Lord said, “. . . by their fruits ye shall know them.” (Matthew 7:20). Modern Christians are so ignorant of the bible that they discern nothing of Satan’s work from WITHIN their own religion:
For I know this, that after my departing shall grievous wolves enter in among you, not sparing the flock. [Acts 20:29-32]
The Lord praised “the church of Ephesus” saying,
. . . thou hatest the deeds of the Nicolaitans, which I also hate. [Revelation 2:6]
The servant of the Lord is not supposed to tolerate “them which are evil” in the church, and religious liars are supposed to be DECLARED as “liars:”
. . . thou canst not bear them which are evil: and thou hast tried them which say they are apostles, and are not, and hast found them liars. . . . [v. 2]
It is true Paul said in Romans 6:14, “For sin shall not have dominion over you: for ye are not under the law, but under grace,” but Paul continues:
What then? shall we sin, because we are not under the law, but under grace? God forbid. Know ye not, that to whom ye yield yourselves servants to obey, his servants ye are to whom ye obey; whether of sin unto death, or of obedience unto righteousness?
When the complete passage is read to the so-called “love-gospel Christians,” they have a tendency to carry on like they belonged to a Colombian street gang. These people can frequently quote Romans 6:14 from memory, but refuse to read a single verse anywhere else in the chapter. At the beginning of Romans 6, in verses 1-2, Paul said:
What shall we say then? Shall we continue in sin, that grace may abound? God forbid. How shall we, that are dead to sin, live any longer therein?
as he also said:
Awake to righteousness, and sin not; for some have not the knowledge of God: I speak this to your shame. [1st Corinthians 15:34]
For if we sin wilfully after that we have received the knowledge of the truth, there remaineth no more sacrifice for sins. . . . [Hebrews 10:26]
The grace of God is not a license to sin, and Jesus Christ plainly called men away from it (John 5:14; 8:11; 1st John 2:1). Further, it is consistently ignored by professional religious “experts” that the Lord gave “sin” a definition:
Whosoever committeth sin transgresseth also the law: for sin is the transgression of the law. [1st John 3:4]
Concerning “law,” the typical Laodicean refuses to read the word as given in context. What was “contrary to us” and nailed to the cross, was specifically stated to be the “handwriting of ordinances” (Colossians 2:14). “Till heaven and earth pass” the commandment law will never be done away with (Matthew 5:18-19), which fact is simply ignored by Satan’s religious professionals working in the churches, who lust after money and not your “perfection” (2nd Corinthians 13:9; Colossians 1:28).
This commandment-hating philosophy is taught in nearly all of the seminaries and received by almost everyone today. The “new translations” now surgically remove “commandments” and replace the word with “commands,” resulting in lawless bibles and godless churches. Christians do not accept the significance of the fact that Satan is “the god of this world” (2nd Corinthians 4:4) and that his primary area of interest and expertise is religion. America is deceived into destroying itself (Hosea 8:7).
The “heart” of the problem in rebelling against God (1st Samuel 12:14-15; Job 24:13) has to do with the way a man THINKS (Proverbs 23:7), regardless of whether he is claiming Christ in the process. If the spiritual dimension is ignored (Ephesians 6:12), it is impossible to determine what all the fuss is about, because: the sabbath day is a benefit to man (Mark 2:27), God calls it “a delight” (Isaiah 58:13-14), and it is manifestly simple: if a man is a servant of the Lord, he and his house will rest on the seventh day, because the Lord said to do so; and there would be no problem here at all, if men were not in love with the world.
Remember the sabbath day, to keep it holy. Six days shalt thou labour, and do all thy work: But the seventh day is the sabbath of the Lord thy God: in it thou shalt not do any work, thou, nor thy son, nor thy daughter, thy manservant, nor thy maidservant, nor thy cattle, nor thy stranger that is within thy gates: For in six days the Lord made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that in them is, and rested the seventh day: wherefore the Lord blessed the sabbath day, and hallowed it. [Exodus 20:8-11]
The fourth commandment, as well as the other nine, contains no “legalisms” at all. (This non-biblical buzzword is used as promotional spin to imply wrongdoing where none existed.)
Most religious Americans are tragically comfortable ignoring the Lord’s word, and “feeling saved” while doing so (Jeremiah 44:16-17; 13:10). They rarely give a thought as to the roots of their religious institution, even though its Roman origin and destination should be obvious to anyone, as it is written, “As is the mother, so is her daughter.” (Ezekiel 16:44) It is no mystery that the denominations are mere lap dogs of Catholicism, and that the differences between them are not worth mentioning.
The controlled press, institutions of “higher learning,” and all savvy politicians (in and out of government) now universally acknowledge the “pope” and the “MOTHER OF HARLOTS” (Revelation 17:5), as being the repository of “the Christian faith.” It is not possible to adequately explain this massive voluntary “blindness” (Ephesians 4:18) without using the word, “conspiracy.” The “great whore” exposed in Revelation openly accepts “idols” as “aids to worship” (1st John 5:21) along with “fathers” (Matthew 23:9) in black dresses claiming “Our Mother” (Galatians 4:26), as the “queen of heaven” (Jeremiah 7:18) and “mediatrix” (1st Timothy 2:5), baldly claiming she intercedes (Romans 8:26) for the unregenerate millions, whose “Holy Father” (John 17:11) in Rome (Revelation 17:9,4) pretends (along with the rest of the Catholic priesthood) “to take the place of Jesus Christ!” (Mark 3:28-29).
Anyone protesting this pagan sewage is routinely dismissed as “too judgmental” or “lacking love” by “protestant” leaders (Luke 16:15) entirely preoccupied with promoting Rome, and substituting Jesuit “Greek texts” for the bible as Christian authority. These wolves in sheep clothing go to “prayer lunches” with the degenerate priests of the “harlot” religion (1st Corinthians 6:15-16), and invite them to preach from their own pulpits their subtle Roman priestcraft poison to the defenseless children of their ignorant congregations. Woe to these wicked men! (Matthew 18:6)
O my people, they which lead thee cause thee to err, and destroy the way of thy paths. [Isaiah 3:12]
My people hath been lost sheep: their shepherds have caused them to go astray. . . . [Jeremiah 50:6]
In America’s brief past a “Protestant” was one who protested AGAINST Rome, but such is clearly no longer the case. (A “Lutheran” minister recently told me, “Protestant doesn’t MEAN that anymore;” proudly pointing out that, “All [his] best friends are Jesuits FROM SEMINARY SCHOOL.”!) Denominations “drunken” by the whore; Lutheran, Baptist, Assembly of God, Adventist, Church of Christ, Methodist, and many others, now blindly trust such men whose training has been specifically designed to deceive them (Jeremiah 17:5; Proverbs 25:19). These “blind leaders of the blind” justify the festering ungodly pagan idolatry and salvation-by-works in Catholicism as “harmless” and “insignificant;” but will insist that YOU are into “legalisms” if you believe God and fellowship on the sabbath (Jude 11-13). Those who justify Catholicism apparently never consider that “THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS” would have to produce “DAUGHTERS” and such persons are only instinctively justifying themselves.
In Matthew 5:17-19 the Lord commented on the issue of the commandments being done away with.
Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfil.
(A “Church of Christ” elder and a Baptist pastor interrupted me here on two separate occasions with the identical compulsive spiel: “Yea, and he did fulfill it!” But when they SAY “fulfil” they’re THINKING “destroy” and both men blurt out, “done away with” before I finish the verse.)
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. Whosoever therefore shall break one of these least commandments, and shall teach men so, he shall be called the least in the kingdom of heaven: but whosoever shall do and teach them, the same shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven.
(Which are you? Does it matter to you?)
Religious “professionals” teach that “certain things the Lord has said” can be ignored because “He was not talking to born again Christians;” or “He was talking to mostly Jews.” The first point that should be made in responding to such nonsense is that in his entire fleshly ministry the Lord NEVER said anything to a “born-again Christian,” and he ALWAYS spoke to “mostly Jews.” If a man accepted this argument, he would ultimately receive nothing the Lord said, which is precisely why such sophistries are devised by these “lawyers” (Luke 11:52).
The Holy Spirit eliminated any rationale for “infant sprinkling” for the church and gave the answer to the question, “. . . here is water; what doth hinder me to be baptized?” (Acts 8:36), when Philip said, “If thou believest with all thine heart, thou mayest.” (That’s the “believer’s baptism,” of course, as opposed to the other kind: a PAGAN baptism. There is nothing funnier (or more pathetic) than listening to an apostate Christian minister try to explain how a month-old baby can believe on Jesus Christ “with all his heart.”) The point is, in Acts 8, that Philip gave his doctrinal answer on Gentile baptism to a EUNUCH! (Do you hold the belief that faith-professing immersion does not apply to a man if he is NOT a eunuch, or was not recruited by an Israelite named Philip? Do you see the can of worms you’re in now, if you do?)
A Baptist who publishes a worldwide newsletter (and of course claims to be a “bible-believer”) says that the testimony given in the book of James “wasn’t given for new testament Christians,” as he calls into question the bible verses his Baptist training has difficulty with. He points out that the book of James addresses itself in chapter 1, verse 1, “to the twelve tribes which are scattered abroad” (implying again that James is for the Jews and not us; when of course, anyone who is in Christ is grafted into Israel, as clearly given in Romans 11, so what is the doctor’s point, REALLY?) Jews who are not in Christ do not read James, and further still, it must be remembered that Romans was written “to all that be in Rome” (Romans 1:7) as were both 1st and 2nd Corinthians written to “the church of God which is at Corinth.” (Are YOU “at Corinth?” Do you think it matters? Do you think the doctrine in Paul’s epistle written to the church at Corinth does not apply in Kansas City?)
The Lord brought his gospel to the Jew first, as he said, and then as Paul said, it goes to the Gentiles (Acts 13:46; Romans 1:16), who do not get “another gospel!” (Galatians 1:6-7) There is only ONE gospel of Jesus Christ, and if a man does not get THAT one, he gets the wrong one (Galatians 1:6-9). There is only “one body” in Jesus Christ (1st Corinthians 12:13) and it does not matter if a man is born Jew, Gentile, or Slovakian. “Gentiles” become “fellowheirs, and of the same body, and partakers of his promise in Christ by the gospel. . . .” (Ephesians 3:6) “For there is no difference between the Jew and the Greek . . .” (Romans 10:12) if they have “the same Lord,” which is exactly why the “ordinances,” which powerfully separated Jews from Gentiles, were “abolished” (Ephesians 2:15), as they serve no purpose. Paul said, “Ye know that ye were Gentiles . . .” (1st Corinthians 12:2) “in time past” (Ephesians 2:11), but no longer if you are “in Christ Jesus . . . who hath made both one” (2:12-15). Gentiles do not start their own club: they get “graffed in among them” (Romans 11:17). Those who reject scripture on the basis that it was written to Israel, only bear witness against themselves that they are NOT “graffed” into Israel. These deceiving wonders say that Matthew 5:17-19 does not count for anything “because Jesus said it before the resurrection,” when, of course, nearly EVERYTHING the Lord said in the bible was said before the resurrection. The commandments are upheld not only in Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John, but also in Romans, 1st Corinthians, Ephesians, Colossians, 1st John, 2nd John, and Revelation.
As with Israel, so the Laodicean churches are now filled with slick “theologians” who claim to believe the bible, when in fact, their religious dogmas are based in Catholic propaganda (Colossians 2:8). The Lord knew these false shepherds would be deceiving people that certain commandments should not be kept (Matthew 5:18-19), and therefore strongly warned us against them and their heresies (1st Corinthians 11:19). In reaction to this passage in Matthew 5, some people get a blank look on their faces and their eyes glaze over as they begin mumbling about, “the early fathers,” “the original Greek,” or something being “out of context.” Many of them, thinking that Christians are free through grace to ignore some, or all, of the commandments, get furious as the Lord here bluntly contradicts them!
A Baptist 32nd degree Freemason tries to refute the clear meaning here, saying, “Yea, well, not one jot or tittle will be done away with till all be fulfilled, and Jesus did fulfill everything at the cross.” The listener is to infer, “everything” being thus “fulfilled,” that the commandments are passed away. This belief, which contradicts the entire point of the verse, is believed (like “evolution”) by nearly everyone. (The natural man always “believes” what he likes to believe, and no real evidence is necessary.)
First, Jesus did fulfill many prophecies, but he certainly has NOT fulfilled ALL. If a man believes otherwise, then he has denied the resurrection of the church, the day of the Lord’s coming in power, and his rule on earth for a thousand years. At the least, all things will not be fulfilled until the end of the “new heaven” and “new earth” (Revelation 21:1-5). Of course, the federal incorporated “churches” do not really believe in a “new earth,” and to the extent their hope is at all religious in nature, their hope resides in the Vatican.
In Mark 13:4 the disciples asked the Lord, “Tell us, when shall these things be? and what shall be the sign when all these things shall be fulfilled?” The Lord answered by giving the signs preceding the tribulation, and his coming in glory. In Matthew 5:18 the Lord plainly said, “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.” As it is a fact that heaven and earth have not yet passed, neither have one jot or tittle passed from the law, contrary opinions notwithstanding (Luke 16:17).
A Florida Baptist, with a “divinity degree,” preaches the ridiculous doctrine that the“kingdom of heaven” is a different kingdom than the “kingdom of God” as a way to escape “the commandment problem” created by the Lord in Matthew 5:19. (There is the risk of having the reader think I am making this up, but I have the doctor’s lunacy in writing.) “Things different are not the same,” he says, to sell this heresy. Applying the doctor’s logic to the Lord; the “Root of David,” “Lion of the tribe of Judah,” and “chief corner stone” would be three different Lords! (Witnessing such mental gymnastics of “learned men” preaching against the fourth commandment is quite revealing when pondering the importance of this issue, at least for those who are not blinded by the denominational dogma. If the sabbath truly were not important, it becomes impossible to explain the large number of “educated” religious people making themselves hypocrites to get rid of it.)
The “kingdom of God” and the “kingdom of heaven” are one and the same kingdom, of course, as is the “kingdom of Christ and of God” (Ephesians 5:5), as well as the “everlasting kingdom of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ” (2nd Peter 1:11). There are more than a dozen parables in which the two terms, “kingdom of heaven” and “kingdom of God,” are used interchangeably and this could not possibly be missed by anyone with a “doctorate in theology,” unless it was on purpose.
For the parable of the sower, the term “kingdom of heaven” is used in Matthew 13:11 but “kingdom of God” is used in Mark 4:11 and Luke 8:10. The camel-through-a-needle parable (Matthew 19:23-24) uses the term both ways, but then in Mark 10:23-25 and Luke 18:24,25 the same parable uses only “kingdom of God.” In Mark 10:15, it is the “kingdom of God” that must be received “as a little child,” but in Matthew 18:3, for the same parable, it is “the kingdom of heaven.” A “child” can compare Matthew 13:31-32 with Mark 4:30-32 and Luke 13:18-19. (We get this far off-point in order to answer the arguments used in wresting scripture and justifying religion!)
Now, according to such people, we have TWO “sabbaths” (ours AND “the Jews’”), two resurrections (ours, THEN theirs), and finally two “kingdoms” so that anti-Semitic Baptists who reject the commandment keeping “kingdom of heaven” in Matthew 5:19 can conveniently inherit the alternate “kingdom of God” “for Gentiles!” (The problem is that the “OTHER kingdom” the doctor is counting on belongs to Satan (Matthew 12:26).)
This whole perverted line of thinking is just an extension of the heresy flowing from the spiritual “MOTHER” of all such false doctrine; which also claims that there are two “mediators” (The Lord and “Mary”), two “Holy Fathers” (in heaven and in Rome), two “sacrifices” (at Calvary and at the “mass”), two “Rocks” (The Lord and Peter), two “authorities” (the bible and “tradition”), two persons to “substitute for Jesus Christ” (the Holy Spirit and the “pope”), two definitions for “tongues” (allowing the “Charismatic” crowd to escape 1st Corinthians 14), and two who are “the mother of us all” (Galatians 4:26). (Many find “new Jerusalem” (as given in Revelation 3:12 & 21:2) to be entirely “too Jewish” and envision life more to their liking in a “heavenly” Gentile kingdom of their own design.)
Modern so-called “Protestant churches” have in common with their Catholic “MOTHER” that  they both believe previous members of their own religion changed the sabbath day from Saturday to Sunday,  they both consent to the change,  they both justify Satan who orchestrated the change, and  they are both contradicted by the new testament. Further, all ten of the commandments, claimed by nearly everyone now to be “old testament,” are restated and repeatedly reaffirmed in the NEW testament:
# Exodus 20 New Testament
1 vs. 2-3 Matthew 4:10
2 vs. 4-6 1st John 5:21
3 v. 7 Colossians 3:8
4 vs. 8-11 Hebrews 4:4-10
5 v. 12 Matthew 19:19
6 v. 13 v. 18
7 v. 14 v. 18
8 v. 15 v. 18
9 v. 16 v. 18
10 v. 17 Romans 7:7
In Matthew 28:19-20, the Lord said:
Go ye therefore, and teach all nations . . . to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you. . . .
(If you are deceived enough to tell yourself that what the Lord said in the last two verses in Matthew are “just written for the Jews,” then you still have the problem that he said to the eleven disciples (v. 16) to “teach all nations” the same thing!) It is perfectly normal for modern so-called “new testament Christians” to make a liar out of both the Lord and the new testament. The Lord said:
. . . if thou wilt enter into life, keep the commandments. [Matthew 19:17]
In order to escape the plain fact of such clear language it is fashionable to speculate that the Lord invented two NEW commandments, so that the word “commandments” need not actually refer to “the commandments.” Those who accept this lie twist the Lord’s words in Matthew 22:40 to imply that the Lord did away with the ten commandments, even though he said NOT to “Think” such a thing. In verses 34-40, it is seen that the Lord’s response concerning “two commandments” was given in answer to a lawyer’s trick legal question, “. . . which is the great commandment in the law?” The Lord answered this request for ONE by giving TWO commandments which are the backbone of ALL the law as he said (v. 40). The Lord gave NOTHING NEW: he only quoted Deuteronomy 6:5 and Leviticus 19:18. Both of these commandments came from the “LAW,” and both were already “given to the Jews.” The hypocrites simply pretend to like the two commandments in Matthew 22 because they are not specific! (These people SAY “love,” but they are THINKING “money” and “reputation” – Luke 20:46,47.) The Lord did not say Deuteronomy 6:5 and Leviticus 19:18 replace the ten commandments: he said on these two “hang all the law and the prophets.” These are the same “law” and “prophets” that he said he did NOT come to destroy (Matthew 5:17), which “the salt of the earth” (v. 13) and “light of the world” (v. 14) should “do and teach” (v.19).
Loving God with the whole heart AND loving neighbors as ourselves (the Lord’s answer to the lawyer’s question) is simply the briefest possible complete summary of all ten of the commandments, which is why the Lord refused to separate them and give only ONE “great commandment” as was requested. (How clearly the Lord was aware of “Satan’s devices” and how obviously the false churches are willingly “ignorant” (2nd Corinthians 2:11).
The first four of the ten commandments plainly address the relationship of men with God, while the last six only refer to men with each other. The Lord will not have them divided, which is exactly what the “educated” religious hypocrites try to do, referring arbitrarily to the “sabbath” and “graven image” commandments as “ceremonial” to justify themselves in telling you these two particular commandments have gone south. Worldly “churches” are in near perfect agreement against God (Psalm 2:1-4) that some (if not all) of the commandments are “done away with,” which changes nothing, because “all” the commandments are “sure,” “faithful,” “truth,” and “righteousness” (Psalm 119:86,151,172) as it is written.
Then shall I not be ashamed, when I have respect unto all thy commandments. [Psalm 119:6]
There are going to be a lot of “ashamed” folks at the judgment trying to explain their failure to understand “all.”
. . . all his commandments are sure. They stand fast for ever and ever, and are done in truth and uprightness. [Psalm 111:7]
The ten commandments are not easily attacked en masse, and Satan clearly perceives “divide and conquer” as the better strategy. Even atheists see the wisdom in the commandments as a whole, and as any thief hates having something stolen from him, and Godless government sociologists know what happens to civilization when children do not honor their parents (Read any newspaper (Hosea 8:7).); so the enemy and his ministers are forced to phrase their propaganda carefully. The problem for the “lukewarm” church (Revelation 3:16), is that, just like the world, it is self-centered (Philippians 2:21) and “humanistic” (man-centered). The first four of the ten commandments are easily deemed irrelevant by those who live comfortably in this environment. (Religious leaders who “interpret” the bible to justify “Sunday” are like lawyers who “interpret” the American Constitution to justify “gun control.” They are both professional killers.)
A Baptist pastor points out “the great whore” and her idolatry, declaring that “Catholicism is not a Christian institution because her authority is pagan tradition, and she breaks the second commandment!” If it is pointed out to him that Baptists ignore the fourth commandment, he roars that, “THE LAW IS DONE AWAY WITH IN CHRIST!” Does anyone fail to perceive this as the essence of hypocrisy? (One of these absolutely typical Baptists has an international publication, in which he declares to the world that America failed because it “took the ten commandments out of the schools,” but TELLS ME in writing they are “done away with,” and throws an absolute fit about me personally in the same publication, because I say we should keep them! (Proverbs 11:9).) There is nothing unusual here: this kind of “double think” is standard with the sabbath issue.
At the end of the bible (Revelation 22:14) it is written,
Blessed are they that do his commandments, that they may have right to the tree of life, and may enter in through the gates into the city.
(The so-called “new translations,” without even a pretense to justify themselves, remove “commandments” here, and replace it with claptrap about “doing laundry!” Can you grasp that there is a war raging for the hearts and minds of men on this issue, and that Satan and his people do not play by any rules?) It is written in Revelation 14:12,
Here is the patience of the saints: here are they that keep the commandments of God, and the faith of Jesus.
Because the apostate churches received the lie that the commandments are done away with, their members were easily persuaded they are NOT included among “the saints” in Revelation 14:12, who embarrassingly “keep the commandments.” The wildly popular “pre-tribulation rapture” doctrine, invented by Satan to ensnare the carnal churches in a false hope, was for the same reason received by them because of the very compelling need to separate themselves from those “saints” who are killed in the tribulation (Revelation 13:7). Modern scribes simply fabricated the concept of “tribulation saints” as separate from the church to explain away “the sabbath problem” (Matthew 24:20, etc.) and escape the “great tribulation.” Being in denial concerning the coming persecution, they enter tribulation in utter ignorance of biblical warning (1st Thessalonians 3:4), thinking that God promised otherwise.
The pre-tribulation rapture deception ignores even the verse from which the term “blessed hope” is taken (Titus 2:13), so that, whereas it is clearly given there that this “hope” comes at his “glorious appearing,” the Laodicean false “blessed hope” is an earlier “secret rapture” at which “the Lord DOESN’T APPEAR!” The bible declares that the resurrection comes “Immediately after the tribulation of those days” and that they “see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory (Matthew 24:29-31). Not only do “they” see him, but “every eye shall see him” (Revelation 1:7) It is impossible to maintain that any of this is a “secret.” The Lord comes with “the trump” as Paul testifies (1st Thessalonians 4:13-18), wherein “the dead in Christ shall rise first: Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up. . . .” Denying that the resurrection of the remaining church comes “at the last trump,” after the dead are raised, requires the delusion that Paul is not part of the church! Paul said “we,” thus including himself! (See also 1st Corinthians 15:51-52; John 6:39-40,44,54; & 2nd Thessalonians 2:1-10.)
Belief of “the pre-tribulation secret rapture” necessarily requires belief in the lie that the church is not included among “the saints” who “keep the commandments of God, in the last days, and those who do not keep “the commandments” have a pre-existing spiritual need to justify themselves in this regard, making themselves willing to believe they are not included among the “saints!”
These two lies,“pre-tribulation rapture” and belief that “the commandments are done away with,” are each necessary for the other, and, invariably, anyone who believes one of these lies believes them both. The trap is set. Finding themselves still on earth in the tribulation with Satan prevailing against them (Daniel 7:21; Revelation 13:5-8), deceived Christians will assume they “missed the rapture” they believed was promised them, and, again taking God for a liar, will yield to Satan and take “the mark of the beast” (Revelation 13:16-17), the reality of which is now also uniformly denied in one way or another by the churches (Revelation 14:9-11). Among the many doctrinal problems for the deceivers who push the lie of multiple “raptures” is that there exists only ONE “resurrection of life:” the second resurrection is “of damnation” (John 5:28-29) unto “the lake of fire” (Revelation 20:6,14-15). The Lord appointed exactly ONE resurrection, and ONE sabbath, for those that belong to him! (Did you really think you were getting resurrected BEFORE Job, Daniel, Noah, Abraham, Jacob, Moses, and David? (1st Thessalonians 4:15-16))
American “churches” have rejected persecution for themselves because their members no longer even pretend to see themselves as servants of the Lord.
Remember the word that I said unto you, The servant is not greater than his lord. If they have persecuted me, they will also persecute you. . . . [John 15:20]
Not being servants, they evolved from “service” to “lip service,” which the Lord also condemned:
A certain man had two sons; and he came to the first, and said, Son, go work today in my vineyard. He answered and said, I will not: but afterward he repented, and went. And he came to the second, and said likewise. And he answered and said, I go, sir: and went not. Whether of them twain did the will of his father? [Matthew 21:28]
The apostate churches in America can TALK about obedience, but are not familiar with the process of BEING obedient. The slick pied pipers leading the present apostasy sally forth with: “We must look to JeeeeeeeSUS and be led by the Spirit.” (See Mark 13:6.) as they blatantly preach “another Jesus” and manifest “another spirit” (2nd Corinthians 11:4) in effectively casting out the word of God they claim to believe. Similarly, upon broaching the real sabbath issue, it is routinely claimed by many “Christians,” in casual conversation, that a man “denies the Lord” by keeping the commandments. The Lord said otherwise.
He that hath my commandments, and keepeth them, he it is that loveth me. . . . [John 14:21]
This verse is clear to any third grader, while the “experts” have to feign ignorance as to the “meaning” because they compulsively refuse the meaning! They insist that, “God the Father gave the commandments, but the Son of God did away with them,” when, in fact, they are wrong on both counts. Nothing was given except it was given by Jesus Christ, the “Word” (John 1:3). The commandments were “written with the finger” of the Lord Jesus Christ (Deuteronomy 5:22; 10:1-4 Exodus 31:18) just as they were also upheld by him, personally.
And the Lord said unto Moses, Come up to me into the mount, and be there: and I will give thee tables of stone, and a law, and commandments which I have written; that thou mayest teach them. [Exodus 24:12]
When this verse is compared with Matthew 5:19, it is immediately obvious why these seminary educated deceivers have to say, “Jesus, himself, never actually wrote anything.” They are either ignorant or liars, because Jesus Christ “himself” has written in stone (Deuteronomy 4:12-13), in the dirt (John 8:6, 8), and in men’s hearts (Jeremiah 31:33; Hebrews 8:10; 2nd Corinthians 3:3).
In Matthew 5:21-22 and in verses 27-28, the Lord quoted exactly the sixth and seventh commandments. Not only did he NOT do away with the commandment against adultery, but he added to it, so that just thinking about breaking the commandment has become sin. The Lord upheld the commandments, as it was prophesied of him in Isaiah 42:21:
The Lord is well pleased for his righteousness’ sake; he will magnify the law, and make it honourable.”
(Is it possible for you to think it “honourable” while you hold it in contempt?)
Most religious folks are inclined to believe that their “chosen denomination” has reached spiritual perfection, even if they admit to not having reached this state personally. If confronted by the sabbath “problem,” these people typically say things like, “Here at the [Blah Blah Blah] Center, we don’t worry about doctrine!” (showing themselves to be the enemies of the Lord in this also) (1st Timothy 4:16,13). Several years ago, in one of these charismatic “centers,” the “pastor” orchestrating the “show” recognized a group of real Christians as they entered his place, and immediately went into a canned spiel: “Friends, we don’t have to study the bible. [See: 2nd Timothy 2:15] We can just be leddddddd by the spirit.” Several hundred deluded people there were waving their arms around, applauding, screaming in counterfeit tongues, and shouting approval. The tragedy is that this “shepherd” (Isaiah 56:11) cares nothing about the people he has deceived, and he loves nothing except money (1st Timothy 6:10). The Spirit of God has no part with the mob in that place, who are deceived because they ignorantly LIKE the things this liar tells them (2nd Timothy 4:3-4).
Jim Jones convinced a large number of naive persons that they were “in the spirit” while abandoning the bible, and paid for their foolishness with their lives. Jones was filmed at one of his sermons holding up a bible asking, “Is the bible where we put our faith?” He then threw the book on the floor and answered his own question: “No, that is not where we put our faith.” In the aftermath of the murder in Guyana, the controlled media dutifully described Jones as a “fundamentalist protestant minister!” (Excuse me?!)
Jones is, and always was, Catholic! He was personally trained by Jesuits, and he had as his handler/confessor a Jesuit priest named “father” Divine. He was promoted and financed by the U.S. government through the CIA in San Francisco (where he was provided his victims from state mental hospitals); and was later provided U.S. government owned property in Guyana. Contrary to media propaganda, Jones and his lieutenants were never among the “suicides,” and universally not reported was that the Congressman murdered by Jones, had flown there with the intent to personally investigate the involvement of the CIA in the Jones operation. U.S. agents rushed in to prevent the Guyanese police from completing an inventory of the “suicides” and to stop the lawful Guyanese investigation, for only one reason, the agency was protecting ITSELF! Jones and his cohorts got the usual new identities, and went back to work for the state department. The cult of “Mary” completely runs the CIA in addition to the IRS, Congress, and every other significant agency of government.
The stated purpose of the “Jesuits” is to force every soul on earth to submit to the “pope;” although, quite tellingly, they have murdered “popes” when they found it suited their agenda. Any country which they cannot control through its Catholic population, by war, or assassination, they ultimately conquer by infiltration of its government. (Do you think that American government cannot stop illegal Mexican (Catholic) immigration, or that key government officials simply do not want to stop it? By considering who it is that benefits from this Catholic influx answers that old question, “Who’s really running the government?”)
The Jesuits personally ran Hitler’s death camps, drafted the lists of Jews and Protestants to be rounded up, and made day to day decisions as to who was to be worked to death, tortured to death, or sent to the gas chambers. In return for this “blessing from the Vatican,” Hitler promised “pope” Pius XII that he would “return Europe to the dark ages.” (You might want to think about that.) Hitler had only one “Nuncio” serving as liaison to the Vatican, while the American president now has two! (Imagine the outrage in the American press if a truly Christian “representative” lived at the white house to instruct the Executive branch of government in its policy decisions?) “Separation of church and state” is a myth for the naive and ignorant. The U.S. government is controlled by the Vatican as completely as any South American dictator installed by the CIA.
When Hitler’s blitzkriegs overran Germany’s neighbors (Austria, Hungary, Poland, Czechoslovakia, etc.) their first act was to identify, round up, and liquidate “Jews and Protestants.” To this day, conflicting stories are told about the extent of the cruelty of these invasions, but the conflict is easily explained: the perception of the horror committed was entirely dependent upon whether the witness was Catholic, or not. Polish Catholics often related that their Nazi masters were fairly civilized to them, but they did not discuss this opinion with the Polish Protestants who were savagely slaughtered and buried in mass graves.
When Hitler’s tanks thundered into Paris, French Catholics threw flowers in front of his motorcade to welcome him. This is not understood in America because of the conspiracy of planned ignorance in education. Catholic priests had been openly promoting Hitler from French pulpits during “mass.” (Hitler had his “fifth column” in France, just as Franco had it in Spain.) France remains to this day Catholic, humanistic, and a third rate country, for the simple reason that is has repeatedly throughout its history murdered its own “saints” (“saints” having nothing to do with so-called “canonization” of Catholic imposture (Revelation 14:12)). French mobs, led by their priests, did to bible believers what their priests have always advocated when they controlled the government or the king. As in nearly all of Europe, real Christians, were repeatedly and systematically EXTERMINATED:
And I saw the woman drunken with the blood of the saints, and with the blood of the martyrs of Jesus. . . . [Revelation 17:6]
(Europe is not Catholic because Rome’s pagan doctrine is intellectually appealing, or because the “pope” looks nifty wearing slippers in public with a “Dagon” fish-god hat on his head.) What happened in apostate Germany followed exactly the plan used earlier in history across medieval Europe, and is even now, step by step, being accomplished in apostate America. (Ecclesiastes 1:10) The difficulty in perceiving this, in the absence of simply believing the bible, is that the perception of it depends upon learning something from history, and, as has been noted by others, men never learn anything from history. Further, America has been methodically stripped of its spiritual history! (This is not just a question of “values,” but about “forbidden subjects” in the schools, and real history books being systematically removed from the libraries, exactly as in pre-war Germany.)
Papal ambitions via Catholic atrocities and horrors have been clearly revealed throughout history, embracing genocide on a massive scale, world wars, and political intrigues at the highest levels; including even assassinations of Catholics in high office, who were “not Catholic enough” or who resisted the agenda of the so-called “holy office.” John F, Kennedy, for example, despite his other sins, did not in the end believe that “Cardinal” Spellman’s determination to install Roman Catholic Diem in power in thoroughly Buddhist Vietnam (after an exhausted France finally abandoned the Pope’s cause) was worth America’s destruction to accomplish, and Kennedy began the groundwork to withdraw American troops.
Of the forces arrayed against Kennedy, the most fearful were those Catholic strategists, who (as they saw it) had finally managed to obtain a Catholic American president, and he refused to obey! “Spelly’s war” was being brought to an end by a fellow Catholic! This insult was too much for Jesuit General Jansen (the “Black Pope”) to bear, so JFK was executed, with assistance even from agents of his own “secret service” and the whole affair swept under the rug via the Jesuit controlled “secret societies” to which every one of the Warren Commission members belonged. Lyndon Baines Johnson, a ruthlessly ambitious man, “obtained an audience” with “Paul VI,” and, as promised, upon taking office, he immediately and dramatically INCREASED the level of fighting in Viet Nam. (Johnson, like Hitler, ended his life a raving maniac, hidden away from public view by those wise enough to know he had to be kept quiet.)
Millions of Americans are vaguely aware of the massive conspiracy surrounding Kennedy’s assassination, yet fail to understand why the perpetrators were never brought to justice, or why the intelligentsia pretends to believe the deluge of government lies surrounding the cover-up; for example, Arlen Specter’s “magic bullet” theory, for which he was well rewarded. (People who really believe in “magic bullets” could not possibly send a man to the moon.)
Nearly every semi-civilized country on earth (Catholic and otherwise) has on at least one occasion ordered the Jesuits out; yet, they always manage to return, and the lap-dog “news media” obligingly turns a blind eye. Ignorant “Christians” are now strangely willing to blame Jews for the global conspiracy which is blatantly implemented by Jesuits, and devoid of actual “Jews” (Revelation 3:9). (The Rothschild dynasty, for example, although apparently “Jewish” by blood, converted to Catholicism as part of their deal with the pope and the devil to rule the world.) Those who defend the “MOTHER OF HARLOTS” are “most wonderfully blinded” as to what is right before their eyes.
Millions of Baptists belonging to the “Southern Baptist Convention” are like the Jonestown crowd, and do not really know what they are part of. “Their” organization is a hell-hole of apostasy, whose structure is rampant with Jesuits, and was from the beginning set up and lavishly financed by the Global “elite” one-world-government crowd through John D. Rockefeller, purely for the purpose of destroying Christianity from within. Baptists are generally ignorant of this, but they typically get their education from television. It is the “word of God,” not “feelings,” “sincerity,” or “good intentions,” that lets a man discern evil doctrine (Hebrews 5:13-14), the “knowledge” of which points out the error of evil and deceived men, regardless of how powerful, or admired they are by the world (Billy Graham and his friends). The religious “hirelings” (John 10:12-13) running the “churches” have a hidden agenda (Matthew 23:13,15) which is marvelously facilitated by ignorance of the bible.
Satan questioned to Eve that she should obey what God said to her husband, face to face (Genesis 3:1; 2:16-17), and easily deceived the woman because his spiritual advice was exactly what she wanted to hear! Modern phonies say it like this: “Hey, Brother, we’re under grace. You don’t need the commandments. Let the Spirit guide you.” (Then THEY proceed to speak for “the spirit.”) Those who live by the bible cannot be made to conform to this world, but biblically ignorant Christians are now taught that conformity to the world is a Christian virtue. Romans 12:2 states,
And be not conformed to this world. . . .”
and Psalm, chapter 119, is directly to the point:
Depart from me, ye evildoers: for I will keep the commandments of my God. [v. 115]
It is time for thee, Lord, to work: for they have made void thy law. Therefore I love thy commandments above gold; yea, above fine gold. [vs. 126-127]
Apostate American churches are uniform in voiding the law, and blaming it on Paul or “early Christians.” To accomplish this they condone tampering with history, and make it their business to corrupt scripture. When confronted with a real bible, folks deceived by these institutions routinely pretend to “speak Greek” while faking difficulty with English.
The sabbath question does not hinge on American opinion, does not begin with European history, and does not “go back to the Jews.” The sabbath is as old as the earth:
Thus the heavens and the earth were finished, and all the host of them. And on the seventh day God ended his work which he had made; and he rested on the seventh day from all his work which he had made. And God blessed the seventh day, and sanctified it: because that in it he had rested from all his work which God created and made. [Genesis 2:1-3]
The Lord established the sabbath, and blessed it, before there was any such thing as an “Israelite.” It was not “given to the Jews” because there were no Jews to give it to! The sabbath rest was given to Adam and Eve, and the day selected was of the Lord’s choosing, FOR THE REASON GIVEN! It was not left up to them, as the hypocrites say, “to choose our own day.” It was chosen FOR them. (Did you think you should get to vote on this?) If there were ANY commandments that a man could say were “given to the Jews,” it would have to be the other nine. The sabbath day was instituted by Jesus Christ at the foundation of the world, for an entirely non-Jewish reason. The sabbath was “made known” to the Jews (Nehemiah 9:14) but it was “blessed . . . and sanctified” “on the seventh day” of the creation of the world. The Jews did not keep the sabbath (Nehemiah 13:17-18), and, like clockwork, modern Christians do not keep the sabbath; yet the sabbath day was repeatedly held up by the Lord for those who had been offered the covenant of Israel, as it was likewise extended to Gentiles:
Also the sons of the stranger, that join themselves to the Lord, to serve him, and to love the name of the Lord, to be his servants, every one that keepeth the sabbath from polluting it, and taketh hold of my covenant; even them will I bring to my holy mountain . . . for all people. [Isaiah 56:6-7]
Concerning this “covenant . . . for all people,” many Christians seem to be vaguely aware that a new covenant was made with Israel which would include the gentiles, but they are strangely and quite uniformly ignorant of what that covenant consisted, although it was stated plainly in both the old and new testament:
Behold, the days come, saith the Lord, when I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel and with the house of Judah . . . I will put my laws into their mind, and write them in their hearts. . . . [Hebrews 8:7-10]
The new covenant was not a change in the law but a change in its LOCATION. In the first instance the Lord wrote it in stone and entrusted it to the ark, and in the second he wrote it in minds and hearts, and entrusted it to men. The law is not “over” us, for the simple reason that it is IN us! If “the law of God” is NOT in a man, then he is at “enmity against God” and “cannot please God” (Romans 8:7-8). This is childishly simple (Matthew 18:4).
Referring back to Isaiah, chapter 56, verse 2, it is written: “Blessed is the man that doeth this, and the son of man that layeth hold on it; that keepeth the sabbath from polluting it. . . .” These verses were not written for “the Jews,” but for “the stranger”, “every one,” and “all people” (vs. 6-7).
When a man reads these verses, he has at least four options available: he can (1) change his thinking and obey the commandments, (2) claim these verses pertain to some other time, (3) claim these verses pertain to some other persons, or he can (4) just ignore these verses without thinking at all. Options #2 and #3 are typically expressed as something like, “We’re not under the LAAAAAW! Those verses about the commandments are just given for the Jews!” Such doctrinal half-truths will usually be dispensed in a booming self-righteous frenzy because emotional impact is needed to win over the facts.
Only the first five books of the old testament are “the law,” yet the entire bible (the prophets, the Psalms, and the New Testament) is filled with the instruction of the Lord to keep the commandments. Until recently, there was not a Baptist home in America that did not have a copy of all ten commandments hanging on the kitchen wall, and there was no need to claim they were “done away with” or to invent any fairy tales about “early Christians;” until it became more available to the public that Sunday is not the sabbath day. The more that the sabbath question rose as an issue, the more vigorously the “establishment churches” scrambled to assemble a plausible denial and counter attack. The real issue for the defenders of the status quo was never about “the truth,” but about keeping their jobs and saving face. The novice in the sabbath issue tends to assume that he needs only present a good case out of the bible to win his “Protestant” clergy to the truth, but the reality is that “the man of the cloth” is not interested in, nor will he be persuaded by, any amount of scripture.
The term “Jewish sabbath” is extensively used as though it came from the word of God. It did not. While a percentage of Christians admit a technical kinship with the Jews through faith in Jesus Christ, they have been taught nonetheless to excuse themselves in ignoring the fourth commandment under the theory that, “The sabbath is for the Jews.” Religious compromisers, who claim the church can keep any day that it likes, furiously insist by this reasoning that the seventh day MUST NOT be kept! Catholic teaching (coming most effectively through “Protestant” pastors educated in Jesuit run seminaries) has contaminated “mainstream Christianity” with a subtle and unbiblical contempt for the Jews, while it goes unexamined that such thinking is utterly incompatible with the love of Jesus Christ, who is not only “a Jew” (Hebrews 7:14) and “the Lion of the tribe of Juda” (Revelation 5:5), but also “King of the Jews” (Matthew 2:2; 27:11).
Most Americans have no idea that Pius XII had a “Concordat” with Adolf Hitler, and blessed him while he was slaughtering Jews in Nazi Germany. Most would not understand, even if they knew about it, why the popular radio propagandist, “father” Coughlin, along with other Catholic priests in America, was trying to convince Americans to join WITH Hitler during the prelude to World War II, declaring Hitler to be “God’s man of the hour.” It is now considered “rude” to mention such major events of history, and seventeen hundred years of systematic horror is now justified and dismissed with, “Oh, you’re just Catholic bashing.” (Galatians 4:16) (which is actually “Baal” bashing (Romans 11:4; Judges 2:13).)
Warning on this subject is perceived as a strange thing because it is so rare. American “hireling” ministers no longer “watch” (2nd Timothy 4:5) and “warn” (Acts 20:31), but rather the “dumb dogs” lull their ecumenical “churches” into a sleepy stupor. Of what value is a religious “guard dog” that opens the back door and sits in silence while the “thief” lurks within the house “to steal, and to kill, and to destroy”? (John 10:10).
His watchmen are blind: they are all ignorant, they are all dumb dogs, they cannot bark. . . . [Isaiah 56:10]
True “watchmen” of the Lord should be presently yapping themselves hoarse! (Ezekiel 3:17; Matthew 24:43-46)
There are two “women” in the book of Revelation. The first “woman” (of Revelation 12) played the whore, rejected her Messiah, and is blind; but she is “beloved for the fathers’ sakes” (Romans 11:28). The second “woman” (Revelation 17 & 18) is rich, powerful, evil, and hated of God. She not only acts like a whore, she IS “the whore” (vs. 15-16) and “the great whore” (v. 1). She envies and hates the other woman and has from the beginning accused her of exactly the treachery of which she herself is guilty. It is not the Jews who are behind the global conspiracy, as claimed by the various neo-Nazi organizations: it is the whore of Revelation that rides the beast, pointing her accusing finger at Judah, whose priesthood she illegitimately claims herself.
A true Christian becomes “Abraham’s seed” (Galatians 3:29) and “a Jew” (Romans 2:29) by adoption (Ephesians 1:5), displaying his ignorance, confusion, and hypocrisy by treating “Jew” as a dirty word (John 4:22). The future course of this world’s last days will be revolving around the children of Israel as God brings them back to their land (Ezekiel 36:24,28), and “the times of the Gentiles” is fulfilled (Luke 21:24). This issue is too important to handle by ignoring it (Genesis 12:1-3; Hosea 4:6). The Jews are not a “good” (Romans 3:9-12) or righteous people (the Lord bitterly complained against them), but they are the Lord’s “chosen” and a
. . . special people unto himself, above all people that are upon the face of the earth. [Deuteronomy 7:6]
In the end, by God’s power and faithfulness, “. . . all Israel shall be saved” (Romans 11:26).
Christians should depart from evil (John 17:15; Romans 12:9; Psalm 34:14), including evil done by Israel, but not throw the baby out with the bath by rejecting everything Israel does. It has been said, “The Jews keep the seventh day, so we ought to keep another day.” This is the doctrine of “antichrist” (1st John 2:18). A man who worships God “in spirit and in truth” should be obedient to the Lord in ALL things, regardless of where the Jews failed.
It is true the Jews suffer “blindness in part” (Romans 11:25), who continue to keep the sabbath day and reject their own messiah. Yet, whereas they partially obey God but refuse to know him, millions of milky Christians partially know him and refuse to obey him! It is true the Jews had wicked priests who taught them to reject Christ, yet “the churches” tolerate wicked “pastors” whose sole ministry is to teach them to reject Christ’s “words” (John 14:23).
Jesus Christ defined himself as “the truth” (John 14:6), but also defined his “word” as “truth” (John 17:17-19) and ordained that we are “sanctified through the truth.” Anyone who will “seek” the truth will “find” it (Matthew 7:7), although almost nobody does “find it” (Matthew 7:14). Worse still, those who “find,” but “do not obey the truth,” get “wrath” (Romans 1:18) and “delusion” from God himself (2nd Thessalonians 2:11-12).
The typical routine is expressed like this, “The sabbath is works: salvation is by faith!” (without anyone even mentioning “SALVATION”). Of course, salvation is not by works (and it is also not “by faith.” Salvation is “by grace . . . through faith” (Ephesians 2:8), and when such persons start raving about “salvation” they are simply trying to change the subject. The issue is, “the obedience of faith” (Romans 16:26), because a man’s reward is “according as his work shall be” (Revelation 22:12). Faith produces FRUIT, not hot air (Matthew 7:16-24).
Most folks seem to be aware that if they keep the sabbath, the world will treat them like lepers, but anybody who believed the bible should not be bothered by that. (Luke 6:26; 1st Corinthians 3:18; 4:10) The Lord said, “I receive not honour from men.” (John 5:41) and, further, he said to those who obey him:
Hear the word of the Lord, ye that tremble at his word; your brethren that hated you, that cast you out for my name’s sake, said, Let the Lord be glorified: but he shall appear to your joy, and they shall be ashamed. [Isaiah 66:5]
Blessed are ye, when men shall hate you, and when they shall separate you from their company, and shall reproach you, and cast out your name as evil, for the Son of man’s sake. [Luke 6:22]
Bible hating, state “pastors” (Jeremiah 10:21; 12:10), who cannot cease from slandering the sabbath day, are continually blathering that, “The commandments were in the OLD testament and were done away with because now we have the NEW testament.” Yet, ask one of these Pharisees about his tithing beliefs, and he will always claim that “tithing is different” and “The church is commanded to tithe.” so observe the facts concerning tithing, that it was:
C begun as a custom through Abraham in the OLD testament (Genesis 14:13,20),
C commanded only to “Israel” (Leviticus 27:30-34),
C never given to the church,
C never given in the new testament, and
C pointedly ended in the new testament with a clear explanation as to why it was ended (Hebrews 7:5,18).
Nonetheless, these hypocrites are unanimously able to maintain that TITHING is for the CHURCH while the fourth commandment is for the Jews!?! They misquote Hebrews 7:18, “disannulling of the commandment [singular]” (referring to the “commandment to take tithes of the people” from verse 5); slickly converting this passage into a “disannulling of the ten commandments” (plural), when the stated point is specifically to disannul tithing! Trusting these vipers with “interpretation” of doctrine is out of the question! (I’ve been personally treated by these smooth talking religious shysters to breathtaking explanations concerning how the new testament did away with the old testament and the commandments, yet left tithing intact. Less talented arguments against the sabbath go something like, “Who’ve you been talking to?”; “Where’d you get that idea?”, and “Don’t go quenching the spirit around here!”)
In talking loud, long, and often about the OLD testament ordinance of tithing, and choking on the often-repeated NEW testament instruction to keep the commandments, such men reveal who they really are. They say, “We don’t keep the sabbath because the old testament is done away with.” as they go straight to the old testament to prove tithing for the church! They will partially quote Matthew 23:23, but avoid the keeping of the law, thus transparently betraying themselves as the same birds to whom the Lord first said it:
Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye pay tithe of mint and anise and cummin, and have omitted the weightier matters of the law, judgment, mercy, and faith: these ought ye to have done, and not to leave the other undone.
The new testament casts aside the ordinances, which formerly separated Jew from Gentile, as also the feast days which foreshadowed the coming of Christ, but the new testament did not “do away” with the old testament: it did in fact “establish” (Romans 3:31) and “fulfil” it (Matthew 5:17), while disannulling tithing!
The tithe was first paid by Abraham unsolicited (Genesis 14:20). Later, his grandson, Jacob, whom God named Israel, the patriarch of all of the tribes of Israel, opened his mouth to bargain with God, vowing to give“the tenth” in turn, of all that God would give him (Genesis 28:22). The Lord accepted the deal (Leviticus 27:32). This arrangement was upheld by the Lord through JEWISH ORDINANCES specifically for the support of the priest tribe of Levi who received no inheritance of land (Numbers 18:23-24). The “tithe” was a ten percent “tax,” specifically levied on the descendants of Jacob, which was “disannulled” in the new testament, because the Lord removed from office the tribe that received it (Hebrews 7:12-14), and replaced that priesthood with himself (7:28; 8:1). The tithing issue is truly “old testament,” and applied only to the Jewish tribes to pay; yet none of the seminary educated hypocrites has a problem ignoring the new testament here by pretending he is connected with Levi so he can collect ten percent of your Gentile income, “under grace.” None of them calls tithing “works” and none of them says that tithing “denies Christ,” when that is exactly the way it is in both cases.
The “experts” all agree that Matthew 23:23, wherein the Lord calls the Pharisees “hypocrites,” is addressed TO THE CHURCH (to pay tithes): while the repeated exhortation to keep the commandments, throughout the new testament, and even within that same sentence, applies only “to the Jews!”
Ye blind guides, which strain at a gnat, and swallow a camel. [Matthew 23:24]
Paul clearly upheld the commandments and the sabbath, but “false apostles” and “deceitful workers, transforming themselves into the apostles of Christ” (2nd Corinthians 11:13-15) corrupt young Christians by leading them through a perverted twisting of Paul’s “salvation” verses to contradict the Lord and find fault with “the law of the Lord,” which the Holy Spirit said is “perfect, converting the soul” (Psalm 19:7). The law is weak in that it brings death and cannot save us. Men do not keep the law, but that is “the problem” with men. The curse of the law is that our guilt is perfected and we are all made perfectly worthy of death. Satan’s “ministers” cannot admit the fact that Jesus Christ took away the CURSE of the law, but DID NOT take away the LAW (John 15:10), so they LIE! Paul said,
Do we then make void the law through faith? God forbid: yea, we establish the law.” [Romans 3:31]
The crafty scribe runs to Romans 13:8 and reads: “Owe no man anything, but to LLLLLLOVE one another: for he that loveth another hath FULFILLLLLLLED the law.” He then explains that “fulfilled” MEANS “does away with” (by “private interpretation”) even though Paul and the Holy Spirit have defined “fulfill” to mean “establish” (Romans 3:31) and “accomplish” or “perform” (Jeremiah 44:25; John 19:28) which is to say, “make complete.” (The biblical word “fulfilled” never means “done away with.”) Romans 13:8 begins with “Owe no man any thing, but to love one another . . .” because Paul is not in this context dealing with what man owes God, but only with what man owes “man.” In the next verse, Paul specifically lists the appropriate five commandments:
. . . Thou shalt not commit adultery, Thou shalt not kill, Thou shalt not steal, Thou shalt not bear false witness, Thou shalt not covet; and if there be any other commandment, it is briefly comprehended in this saying, namely, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. [Romans 13:9]
Paul associates the last six of the ten commandments with “love thy neighbour” in verse 9, which is the same association with Leviticus 19:18 that the Lord quoted in Matthew 22:39, having already referred to “the first and great commandment” (in verses 37-38) and going further to say that “On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets.” (v. 40). Honoring parents is omitted in Romans 13:9 because “parents” are not to be confused with “thy neighbor” and the first four commandments are not listed here because they are off the subject!
When deceived Christians quote Romans 13:8 to get rid of the commandments, they not only ignore the verse that follows, in which half of them are listed, but they make the Lord out to be a liar, who gave TWO great commandments (Matthew 22:37-40) upon which hang “all” of the law. Such people consistently leave out the first of these two. (As around “Christmas” time (Jeremiah 10:2-4), they’re always pretending to quote, “Peace on Earth, good will toward men,” while leaving out “Glory to God in the highest” going before in the same sentence! – Luke 2:14.)
Because there are old testament ordinances disannulled in the new testament, commandment-haters naturally insist that “ordinances” and “commandments” are the same thing. (The Baptist “doctor” who says “Things different are not the same,” to force the “kingdom of heaven” and the “kingdom of God” to be two different kingdoms (trying to dodge Matthew 5:19), has no problem forgetting his own rule as he insists in THIS case that “commandments” and “ordinances” are EXACTLY the same.) “Since Paul did away with the ordinances,” the doctor writes, “. . . then the commandments are done away with, too. You can’t distinguish between them.” (I am quoting the doctor.) But Paul clearly did distinguish between them:
Circumcision is nothing, and uncircumcision is nothing, but the keeping of the commandments of God. [1st Corinthians 7:19]
Jesus Christ expanded “salvation” to include Gentiles (Romans 11:11; 2:10), and the keeping of the “ordinances” then became meaningless for both Jews and Gentiles. (Ephesians 2:12-19) The Holy Spirit made it clear: the ten commandments are not “ordinances” and are not “Jewish!”
When Paul wrote about not being under “tutors” (Galatians 4:2), he addressed those “ordinances” which describe the precise requirements of the keeping of the law. It was these laws, written about the commandments that would pass away. This was prophesied of, in Jeremiah 31:32-33 (as Paul repeated in Hebrews 8:10; 10:16) that because the commandments would be written in the heart and mind, those “graffed in” to Israel (Romans 11:19) would not need such tutoring. Paul only repeated what was given before in the old testament. Most of the deceivers who claim the commandments are done away with, and then go to Galatians to “prove” it, know exactly what the “tutor” is.
The bible points out repeatedly that, although a man is not saved by the law, he is not to conclude therefore that the law is set aside. In Romans 2:13, Paul wrote,
For not the hearers of the law are just before God, but the doers of the law shall be justified.
The “law” in Romans 2 is the commandment law, as seen in verses 21 and 22. Paul said:
Is the law sin? God forbid. Nay, I had not known sin, but by the law: for I had not known lust, except the law had said, thou shalt not covet. [Romans 7:7]
Wherefore the law is holy, and the commandment holy, and just, and good. Was then that which is good made death unto me? God forbid. But sin, that it might appear sin, working death in me by that which is good; that sin by the commandment might become exceeding sinful. [vs. 12-13]
Paul said, “For I delight in the law of God . . .” (v. 22) and again, “I thank God through Jesus Christ our Lord. So then with the mind I myself serve the law of God; but with the flesh the law of sin” (v. 25). “Christian” Pharisees who hold these verses in contempt proceed like clockwork to quote Romans 8:1, carefully leaving out the second half of the verse. They quote verse 2, “For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus hath made me free from the law of sin and death,” and then claim that “the law of sin and death” refers to the commandments! Paul said, “. . . with the mind I myself serve the law of God; but with the flesh the law of sin.” These deceivers intentionally destroy sound doctrine, ignoring the fact that chapter eight begins with a concluding statement based upon the previous chapter which used the word “law” twenty two times in three different contexts. They intentionally do not read the passage of scripture from which they extract a proof-text, and clearly hold a Satanic hatred of “the law of the Lord.” (See Psalm 1:1-2.)
Paul preached Christ with the intent,
. . . that the righteousness of the law might be fulfilled in us, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit. . . . Because the carnal mind is enmity against God: for it is not subject to the law of God, neither indeed can be. [Romans 8:4-7]
A man gets the “mind of Christ” if he is converted (1st Corinthians 2:16). The “carnal mind” is against God because it remains in rebellion against God’s law. (By boasting that you are “not subject to the law of God” you only testify against yourself that you are “carnal” and unconverted. If you don’t get it, you just can’t read.)
Reducing chapter eight of Romans to its skeleton, those “in Christ Jesus” to whom there is “no condemnation” are defined (in verse 1) as those
. . . who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.
Those who are “after the flesh” are defined (in verse 6) as those who are “carnally minded.” The reason that “the carnal mind is enmity against God” is expressly stated (in verse 7) as being for the reason that
it is not subject to the law of God, neither indeed can be.
Those who “are after the flesh” have to pretend they “are after the spirit” (verse 5) by faking all manner of absurd “gifts” because “the righteousness of the law” is indeed “fulfilled in us,” but NOT in them (verse 4). Modern Christians believe the lie that “The spiritual man is not subject to the law.”, when the truth is exactly the opposite:
the carnal mind . . . is not subject to the law of God [Romans 8:7]
and “neither indeed can be” so.
Carnal Christians wrest Colossians 2:16 “unto their own destruction” (2nd Peter 3:16), trying to make Paul and the Lord out to be liars by pretending Colossians 2 refers to the fourth commandment, providing those who hate the sabbath day with a “proof-text,” but this strategy only succeeds in the mind of a man who wants to be deceived by it: “Let no man therefore judge you in meat, or in drink, or in respect of an holyday, or of the new moon, or of the sabbath days. . . .” This verse, as well as the ENTIRE CHAPTER, deals only with “ordinances,” not “commandments,” and a list is given in verse 16 of “ordinances” in which the Lord’s servants are not to allow themselves to be judged. The biblical term, “sabbath days” does not refer to the fourth commandment at all, but to high feast days, which the Jews kept by pagan traditions, EXACTLY like Christians do today. This is easily observed in the book of Isaiah, for those who know that the bible interprets itself.
Bring no more vain oblations; incense is an abomination unto me; the new moons and sabbaths, the calling of assemblies, I cannot away with; it is iniquity, even the solemn meeting. Your new moons and your appointed feasts my soul hateth: they are a trouble unto me; I am weary to bear them. [Isaiah 1:13-14]
The phrase, “new moons and sabbaths” in Isaiah, is the same phrase, referring to the same ordinances, as in Colossians 2:16. In Isaiah 1:14, the expression is repeated from verse 13, using “new moons” again, but followed with “and your appointed feasts” instead of “and sabbaths.” The two terms are interchangeable. These “ordinances” are referenced in Nehemiah 10:33, “of the sabbaths, of the new moons,” and similarly in Ezekiel 46:3.
These “sabbaths” are the “feast” days of YEARLY celebration, and every one of the seminary educated deceivers who took you to Colossians 2:16 to do away with the fourth commandment, knows that. (You thought only blonds played dumb?) The keeping of the fourth commandment “sabbath” is strongly preached in Isaiah (56:2,6; 58:13-14). Isaiah is not “doing away with the sabbath day” in the first chapter of Isaiah, just as Paul, in Colossians, is not! (For those who care about the truth of this matter, see: Leviticus 16:29-31; 23:23-25,32,39 which concerns those “sabbath days” which are entirely unrelated to the fourth commandment.)
As given, “blotting out the handwriting of ordinances” (Colossians 2:14), is the context for verse 16 which follows! The “commandments” are not “ordinances,” and they are not handwritten as Paul refers to the ordinances in verse fourteen. They were “written with the finger of God” (Exodus 31:18; 32:16), which is to say, “without hands” (Colossians 2:11). This Satanic intermixing of commandments and ordinances, as though they were identical, is not just sloppy scholarship, but intentional deception by “evil men and seducers” (2nd Timothy 3:13).
It is written in Colossians 2, “Let no man therefore judge you in meat. . . .” because the ordinances of diet no longer exist! In Romans 14:2, it is written that those who will eat only vegetables are “weak” in faith, but, yet we are told not to judge those who are deceived in this way (14:3); just as we are not defiled by what goes into our mouths, but rather by what comes out (Matthew 15:11). (These shifty hypocrites insist you ditch the fourth commandment so you don’t “observe days;” while they themselves observe Sunday, Christmas, Easter, Lent, Ash Wednesday, birthdays, mother’s day, Valentine’s Day, “Good Friday,” April fool’s, “Halloween,” New Year’s, and the fourth of July.)
“Let no man therefore judge you . . . in respect of . . . the sabbath days” refers to various “ordinances,” as given, and the fourth commandment is untouched by the reference:
. . . hereby we do know that we know him, if we keep his commandments. He that saith, I know him, and keepeth not his commandments, is a liar, and the truth is not in him. [1st John 2:3-4]
For he spake in a certain place of the seventh day on this wise, And God did rest the seventh day from all his works. . . . There remaineth therefore a rest to the people of God. [Hebrews 4:4-9]
The government “churches” insist that the “rest” of the “seventh day” sabbath is “done away with,” but the Lord said it “remaineth,” so somebody “is a liar.” (Comparing John 8:44 with 1st John 2:4 reveals what “the devil” has in common with folks of denominational “orthodox religion.”)
But whoso keepeth his word, in him verily is the love of God perfected: hereby know we that we are in him. He that saith he abideth in him ought himself also to walk, even as he walked. Brethren, I write no new commandment unto you, but an old commandment which ye had from the beginning. The old commandment is the word which ye have heard from the beginning. [1st John 2:5-7]
Satan’s “ministers” use various tactics to promote the lie that the God of the old testament is different than the God of the new testament (Malachi 3:6; Hebrews 13:8), usually stopping short of explicitly stating it; such as, “Well, we WERE under law administration, but that was done away with and now we’re under GRACE administration.” (This may sound scriptural to those who are used to hearing such slop, but none of it came from the bible.) Indeed, we ARE under “grace,” but any “chosen people” ALWAYS WERE. Noah “found grace” (Genesis 6:8); Lot “found” it (Genesis 19:19); Moses “found” it (Exodus 33:12,17); Gideon “found” it, and had the nerve to ask for proof of it (Judges 6:17), and got proof of it (vs. 18-23); a “remnant” got it (Ezra 9:8); “the lowly” got it (Proverbs 3:34); and, in the wilderness, “all the families of Israel . . . found grace” (Jeremiah 31:1-2). (Rather than believe the word of God, most Christians prefer to think that the grace of God is some “NEW” thing that only they get, because, just like Mama always said, “You’re “SPECIAL!”)
John said to “keep” the commandments, Paul said it, and the Lord said it. Christians may CLAIM they want Jesus Christ as the LORD of their lives, but they certainly WILL NOT HAVE HIM TELLING THEM WHAT TO DO! The world’s opinion (religious or otherwise) concerning Jesus Christ is plainly “We will not have this man to reign over us.” (Luke 19:14), which is why the politically correct response to Christ knocking at the door ignores his position as “Lord,” and obedience is out of the question! (Satan has modern Christians limiting their thinking to, “Jesus, come into my heart!,” when they desperately need Jesus Christ as “Lord” (Romans 5:21) and a “new heart” (Ezekiel 36:26), which requires that the man submit himself as a “servant” (John 12:26). The greatest potential for failure in being a servant lies in a man’s inability to make up his silly mind about exactly whom he is going to “serve” (Luke 16:13; Romans 6:16; 1st Corinthians 7:23).)
A man living in adultery will naturally find the seventh commandment to be “inappropriate,” and the last thing he wants to run into is a man with a bible who is able to quote from it. (The fornicator may say he’s a servant of the Lord (Galatians 6:3) and has “Jesus in his heart,” but don’t hang around while he gives his “interpretation” of the seventh commandment.) He may fool the naive on the subject of fornication, but he will not escape the wrath of the righteous judge (Ephesians 5:3,6).
Whosoever committeth sin is the servant of sin. [John 8:34]
The Lord stated in the fourth commandment his reasoning behind keeping the seventh day, as opposed to some other day. “REST” on that day was commanded because the God who “in the beginning . . . created the heaven and the earth,” (not the JEWISH heaven and earth) rested on that day himself (Genesis 2:3; Exodus 20:11; John 1:1-3). “The Jews” are not the issue concerning the sabbath day. A man either serves the God of the bible, or “the god of this world” (2nd Corinthians 4:4). The reason for the seventh day cannot change unless “the god” at issue is not the God of creation. (Opinions on this vary considerably.) Self-styled Christians now defiantly reject the Lord by such arrogant sayings as, “For Christians, ALL days are holy days.” Although this Satanic seduction sounds clever, it begs the question with half an answer because the commandment not only states, “Remember the sabbath day,” but on that day “thou shalt not do any work. . . .” (Exodus 20:10). The apostle Paul “. . . commanded you, that if any would not work, neither should he eat” (2nd Thessalonians 3:10), as it was written by the Lord, “Six days shalt thou labour, and do all thy work. . . .” (Exodus 20:9), so that “all days” cannot be kept “holy” as suggested.
In justifying the exchange of the sabbath for the first day of the week, it is routinely claimed that “all days are now the same” while simultaneously accusing those who do not accept Sunday as being “under the law.” Are all days now really “the same?” Consider that this strategy of incremental lies is used for every evil purpose, from Communism to women’s lib! For example; the early proponents of evolution, in eliminating the bible from the educational system, originally claimed only to want to teach their theory equally along with the biblical account in the schools. Was that really all they wanted? (Examine the strategy: first, a Satanic substitute is made an “equal” partner to the truth, and then when the lie becomes familiar, the truth is removed.) Those who approve of lies for a “good cause,” say that Sunday is an “accepted tradition,” but the Lord said:
Thus have ye made the commandment of God of none effect by your tradition. Ye hypocrites, well did Esaias prophesy of you, saying, This people draweth nigh unto me with their mouth, and honoureth me with their lips; but their heart is far from me. But in vain they do worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men. [Matthew 15:6-9]
They claim to“worship” the Lord, but even so, the Lord said they do it “in vain.” The trained hypocrites running the so-called churches today are the spiritual descendants of these cursed men. The Lord nailed them:
For laying aside the commandment of God, ye hold the tradition of men. . . . Full well ye reject the commandment of God, that ye may keep your own tradition. [Mark 7:6-9]
A Baptist stated to a friend of mine in Tennessee, “I like a lot less law and lot more grace.” Although this opinion is well represented in most religious circles, someone who is “of the truth” (John 18:37) is not consumed with what he “likes,” or “wants,” but with what is “true.” The important question is, “What does the Lord want?”
Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter: Fear God, and keep his commandments: for this is the whole duty of man. [Ecclesiastes 12:13]
The World Council of Churches works tirelessly to get “homosexuals into the fold,” and women into the pulpit (while maintaining membership) and not one of the doctors, experts, priests, scholars, “reverends,” or lawyers running the organization considers that the Lord already addressed these issues and said he was not going to have it! He said it in the OLD testament (Leviticus 20:13; 18:22; Deuteronomy 23:17; 22:5; Genesis 3:1-17) and it is still that way in the NEW testament. (1st Timothy 2:11,12; Romans 1:27,32; 1st Corinthians 6:9-10; 1st Timothy 1:10; Jude 7) Of course, every one of these politically correct theologians will have Galatians 3:28 (concerning SALVATION) for his proof-text, so he can ignore the above verses, concerning SEX, which is the issue. If a true Christian testifies that this evil cannot be combined with Christian doctrine because it is still “sin,” all the religious politicians will carry on like HE had the problem. Many such people pay lip service to the bible while their doctrine clearly reveals they care nothing about what God said. (“Interpretation” was never really the issue.)
It is frequently claimed that the sabbath is done away with because Jesus “harvested” on the sabbath. Those who partake in this “false witness” against the Lord are similarly ignorant of scripture and deceived in doctrine. (Religious professionals engaged in this lie have been around for two thousand years. – Acts 6:9-13) The bible does NOT say the Lord “harvested on the sabbath day”, rather that, the “disciples plucked the ears of corn, and did eat . . .” (Matthew 12:1; Mark 2:23; & Luke 6:1) Here, the Lord did not say the sabbath is done away with, nor even hint at such an idea; while defending his disciples against the Pharisees’ absurd accusation that the disciples had done “that which is not lawful to do on the sabbath days.” Further, scripture does not say that anyone should not “EAT” on the sabbath, but that no one should “work.” The disciples’ picking at the corn, while they stood in the field with the Lord, is not “harvesting!” (If they had been harvesting, their act would have been unlawful on ANY day of the week! – Deuteronomy 23:24-25))
The Lord said, “Whosoever therefore shall break one of these least commandments, and shall teach men so, he shall be called the least in the kingdom of heaven. . . .” Ignoring this, deceived Christians frequently claim that, “Jesus broke the commandments. . . ,” or that, he “. . . did away with sabbath day because he HEALED on that day.” Observe that this is the same Satanic conclusion and accusation that the Pharisees made against the Lord, and they did this, NOT because “They kept the sabbath” (as it is claimed), but because they connived to justify themselves, while intending to accuse and kill him!
And the scribes and Pharisees watched him, whether he would heal on the sabbath day; that they might find an accusation against him. [Luke 6:7]
The Lord never made it unlawful to “heal” or to “do well” on the sabbath: his religious enemies did! The Lord responded to their sick conclusion (that is still around today), and he plainly stated that it IS “lawful on the sabbath days to do good. . . . And they were filled with madness . . .” (Luke 6:11). The scribes and Pharisees hated the Lord for healing ON ANY DAY. His miracles were a hard act to follow and they deeply resented his power. The Lord preached the simple doctrine that love and mercy are always right, even on the sabbath. The Pharisees concluded that the Lord was all wrong, while deceived Christians now conclude that the sabbath is all wrong. The charge of “sabbath-breaking” is phony, then and now, and the Lord is innocent of the accusations from both groups!
The Lord kept the sabbath day by teaching on that day in the synagogues, but the religious professionals who are always blathering about the Lord being “our example” are careful to avoid the obvious in this case.
And [Jesus] came to Nazareth, where he had been brought up: and, as his custom was, he went into the synagogue on the sabbath day, and stood up for to read. [Luke 4:16]
In Luke 13:10, when the woman came to him to be healed, he “was teaching in one of the synagogues on the sabbath,” as in Luke 6:6 when the man with the withered hand came to him. (There is a pattern here that evil men consistently pretend they don’t see!) In 1st John 2:6, it is written,
He that saith he abideth in him ought himself also so to walk, even as he walked.
Enraged Laodiceans tear the pages of their false bibles racing to Acts 20:7 to prove Paul “held services on Sunday” (and succeed only in proving they can not read)! The simple truth of Acts 20:7 is that the disciples came together to “break bread” (NOT “share the communion”) with Paul late on the sabbath, which in biblical terms, became the first day of the week at sundown. Paul just continued preaching late into the evening prior to his leaving town the next day. Paul then got together with the church for a meal AFTER the sabbath (as my friends do every week).
Significantly, we learn here that Paul continued his speech “until midnight” yet none of the hypocrites who uses Acts 20:7 for his Sunday proof-text ever comes to the conclusion from this verse that he should congregate “Sunday” morning at “midnight!” (If Acts 20:7 were really as pivotal for them as they claim, being willing, as they are, on the strength of it to reject the fourth commandment in favor of the DAY mentioned, it is revealing that they care nothing about the TIME given.) Acts 20:7 changes nothing:
And upon the first day of the week, when the disciples came together to break bread, Paul preached unto them, ready to depart on the morrow; and continued his speech until midnight.
As to the collection or exchange of money on the sabbath day, it must be understood that the modern “church” practice of whining for money once every week is neither permitted on the sabbath, nor lawful “for the service of the house of our God” (Nehemiah 10:31-32). The errors and ignorance of the present apostasy are used as a basis to wrest 1st Corinthians 16:2, in a pretext to make it appear Paul was raising the first day of the week as the “new Christian sabbath” by claiming he “shifted tithing to Sunday,” when, for exactly the opposite reason, Paul said this, “to sanctify the sabbath day” (Nehemiah 13:18-22).
Upon the first day of the week let every one of you lay by him in store, as God hath prospered him, that there be no gatherings when I come. [1st Corinthians 16:2]
“Upon the first day of the week” (the end of the sabbath, at evening) is the optimum time (as concerning“liberality”) for each saint at Corinth to“lay by him in store” for the saints at Jerusalem, without handling money on the sabbath. This never occurs to “plate-passers” for whom the collection of money is the main Sunday event! (1st Timothy 6:10)
The sick use of this proof-text as a justification for changing the sabbath day to Sunday just demonstrates that camels really can be swallowed! It is specifically given in the bible that Paul preached on the sabbath day “as his manner was” which is given in the same book of Acts. (Religious phonies have repeatedly had me read Acts 20:7 to make their point, but then, when I proceed to read further in Acts, physically prevent me from doing so.)
And when the Jews were gone out of the synagogue, the Gentiles besought that these words might be preached to them the next sabbath. Now when the congregation was broken up, many of the Jews and religious proselytes followed Paul and Barnabas: who, speaking to them, persuaded them to continue in the grace of God. And the next sabbath day came almost the whole city together to hear the word of God. [Acts 13:42-44]
And [Paul] reasoned in the synagogue every sabbath, and persuaded the Jews and the Greeks. [Acts 18:4]
And Paul, as his manner was, went in unto them, and three sabbath days reasoned with them out of the scriptures . . . of the devout Greeks a great multitude. . . . [Acts 17:2-4]
When a man runs to Acts 20:7 trying to justify his doctrine on “changing the sabbath day,” he only demonstrates he has an agenda other than “the truth” and is comfortable “walking in craftiness” and “handling the word of God deceitfully” (2nd Corinthians 4:2).
If a man wanted to “play the numbers” and get something SIGNIFICANT by comparing “one” with “seven,” it is noteworthy that “the ark rested in the seventh month . . . upon the mountains of Ararat” (Genesis 8:4); that a “servant . . . in the seventh [year] . . . shall go out free . . .” (Exodus 21:2); that in “the seventh year” the “land” should “rest” (Exodus 23:10-11; Leviticus 25:4); and that for a man who is “unclean” (Numbers 19:11-12), “on the seventh day he shall be clean.” It was said that “manna” should not be gathered, and would not be found “on the seventh day” (Exodus 16:26); that in Ezra, chapter seven, verse seven, “the children . . . went up . . . unto Jerusalem, in the seventh year of . . . the king”; that Enoch, resurrected without ever having seen death, was “the seventh from Adam” (Jude 14); and twenty times “on the seventh day thou shalt rest” (Exodus 23:12, etc.). Joshua compassed Jericho “seven times” on “the seventh day” (Joshua 6:15) with “seven priests” bearing “seven trumpets” (6:4), who “brought the walls down” at the “seventh” trump (1st Corinthians 15:52) at which there was a “great shout” (Joshua 6:5,20; 1st Thessalonians 4:16-17; Jeremiah 25:30; Isaiah 42:13; Psalm 47:5) at which the people “ascend” (Joshua 6:5) “so that the people went up” (Joshua 6:20; Revelation 11:12) after which the place was destroyed “with fire” (Joshua 6:24; 2nd Thessalonians 1:8; 2nd Peter 3:7,12; Matthew 3:10,11,12) as the Lord had done before (Genesis 19:24) and will do again on a world scale.
These verses clearly foreshadow the day of the Lord’s glory in the last days and the resurrection as given later in Revelation, where, the “seven angels which had the seven trumpets” (Revelation 8:6) prepare to sound under the “seventh seal” (8:1) and “in the days of the voice of the seventh angel” (10:7) after “the seven angels” pour out “the seven vials full of the seven last plagues” (21:9), it is finished (11:15), which is the beginning of the SEVENTH and last “thousand years” for an earth inhabited by man (Revelation 20:2-7). The sabbath day is “the example and shadow” (Hebrews 8:5) of this thousand-year reign of Christ, wherein the world will have “rest.” If anyone seeking the truth wanted a bible number, it is “seven!”
There are many sabbath keeping churches faithful to God’s word in America (not to be confused with “Adventism”), although you will never hear about it from “mainstream” religious professionals. Bible believing Christians have always been hated by every generation “drunk” on “fornication” with Rome (John 17:14-17 & Revelation 17:2,6; 18:3). Keeping the sabbath does not “feel right” to a carnal man, because he naturally follows his instincts concerning what he thinks IS “right.”
There is a way which seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death. [Proverbs 14:12]
The problem is that what “seems” right, is not right, but it “seems” to help if others agree with you. A carnal “Christian” naturally rejects what he perceives as minority opinions (Matthew 7:14), and his denominational comfort zone is absolutely necessary for him. In exchange for merely having to endure weekly sermons on “tithing” and “mistakes in the bible,” he is protected from the burden of having to THINK, and more importantly, like any worldly man, he relishes the honor and approval of the men in his chosen “church” club who agree with him. The Lord asked:
How can ye believe, which receive honour one of another, and seek not the honour that cometh from God only? [John 5:44]
(A cigar smoking freemason says, “I’m a Baptist with a big ‘B’!” to prove my point.)
The small and scattered real churches, that count the contempt of this world a small thing in comparison to the joy and glory of the truth, do not subscribe to the theory that God’s law is dead any more than “God is dead.” The truth on this subject has survived two thousand years of torture, mass extermination, and now finally, slick religion.
All Christians, in fact, kept the sabbath, not “Sunday,” for three hundred years following the Lord’s death. During a thousand years of “dark ages” under the iron fist of Roman Catholicism, they continued to keep the sabbath, even when forced into hiding and starvation for doing so. Whereas the Satanic lie that “the commandments are done away with” works well on modern spiritually anemic and biblically ignorant “Christians,” it would not have succeeded at all in the dark ages with Christian martyrs, who, rather than break the commandments, were burned alive, buried alive, boiled alive, disemboweled, hung by their arms with weights tied to their feet, turned out naked in the winter, pulled apart in the rack, left to die in the stocks, and thrown off cliffs onto sharp stakes, having watched their wives and children go before them. They had their skin peeled from their bodies, bladders tied shut, arms and legs sawed off, hot pokers shoved into their mouths, and their friends still kept the sabbath, until they were killed. Real Christian men, women, and children accepted this horror rather than deny the truth. (It is now fashionable for “Christian” pastors hawking “pre-tribulation rapture” to stupidly ask, “Would God let anything bad happen to his church?”) (See: Psalm 116:15.)
Fifteen hundred years of history has been systematically buried by the government SCHOOL system, allowing the government CHURCH system to claim that, “The sabbath day was changed by early Christians.” (When the government “news” media uses the word, “Christian,” it always MEANS “Catholic:” Christians are now labeled “cults.”) As America becomes more perverse in its Godless revision of history, the Lord has become more conspicuous in cursing America’s future (see: Ezekiel 20:18-21). Woe, to this ungodly nation!
Whereas there is not even a hint of the seventh day being annulled or replaced by the bible, and whereas the commandment to keep that day was given in the strongest possible terms; a man has to look outside the bible to find the history for the day being changed. If education in this matter were obtained from nothing but the Holy Spirit and a bible, there would be no change. The historical truth is that there were no “early Christians who changed the sabbath to the first day of the week.” Real “early Christians” were persecuted and slaughtered for faithfully KEEPING the Lord’s word: it was and is Satan who seeks to “change” it:
And he shall speak great words against the most High, and shall wear out the saints of the most High, and think to change times and laws. . . . [Daniel 7:25]
The Lord said, “meddle not with them that are given to change . . .” (Proverbs 24:21). (The Christians I fellowship with would not be any more inclined to change the sabbath day than to worship a cow! What sort of person would want to believe that Christians in the past were any different?) “Early Christians” moved in completely different social circles and had nothing in common with their persecutors who served the “queen of heaven” (Jeremiah 44:17-19, 25). Early Christians were not “crossing themselves,” “adoring” idols, saying “novenas,” or thumbing beads. They were not “celebrating the mass,” professing the glories of “the Holy Mother.” They were not seeking intercession through graven images, “the Mother of God,” or dead “saints.” They paid no regard to anyone who claimed to be “infallible” or “take the place of Christ.” God-fearing servants of Jesus Christ were not ignoring God’s word in favor of what any unholy “fathers” had to say about anything. They were not “praying for the dead,” selling “indulgences,” or keeping Sunday. Modern “ecumenical Christians” find such gross heresies to be “only a minor problem!” (Titus 3:10).
Seventeen hundred years ago, the devil proselytized (by chains and fire) and thumbed his nose at the God of heaven through the power of Rome. Christians within Rome’s reach were forced to rest “on the venerable day of the Sun” through Constantine in 321 and forbidden to be idle on the seventh day. (This process was not Christian: it was Pagan, Satanic, and “Roman.”) Constantine’s acquired religion, the ancient Babylonian cult of the sun god (“Catholicism”) had been around two thousand years before him. (“Official history” and the controlled religious press naturally refers to his adopted pagan religion as “Christianity.”) The “sun god” is still honored throughout the world by the ancient pagan “sunburst” on the Catholic altar; where the ritual of placing the “host” in that sunburst is still practiced, worshiped, and even paraded down main-street as “god” in countries where, because of Catholic political power, a Christian pretense is unnecessary.
Historically, while keeping all of her original pagan doctrines, the old Roman “MYSTERY BABYLON” whore clothed herself with Christian terminology, and then turning on the real Christian population, forced them at the point of a sword to become Catholic or die. This is how the native Indian population in Mexico and South America was Catholicized by the Jesuits with their Conquistador escorts; just as it had been done before them in Spain and Italy. The “Ecumenical” movement (meaning “universal,” or “catholic”) is a euphemism for the universal religion of Satan’s “New World Order” (Ephesians 6:12).
To protect the whore’s cover, the historical lie is told that “Rome fell.” It did not. Constantine only moved the office of Caesar to a more luxurious location at the Vatican. The Roman “caesar” (claiming he was god and infallible) became the Roman “pope” (claiming he takes the place of God (“antichrist”) and is infallible), and nothing changed in the least. The ancient mystery “Babylon” religion (Revelation 17:5) took on a “Roman” address (v. 9), and through its “popes,” Jesuit Generals, nuncios, politicians, and assassins, is still to this day reigning “over the kings of the earth” (v.18). Deception and spiritual drunkenness (vs. 1-2), are still the tools of her trade, and are still implemented by force through control of government, whenever possible.
During the “dark ages” (“golden years” for papists; or “middle ages” for those who are noncommittal) the “blood of the saints” was spilled in torrents, exactly as described in Revelation 17:6, and for a thousand years of history it was a nightmare, just as it will be again. Impressive as her power is, however, the old whore will be tossed aside by the “global elite” when their agenda no longer requires her services (Revelation 17:15-18). Such has always been the fate of hookers. (The tricky thing about a “whore” riding on a “beast” (Revelation 17:1-3) is that, under casual scrutiny, it is not immediately obvious who is really in control, and who is only being temporarily “used.” Bible believing Christians know how this turns out: the world is clueless.)
Throughout history, milky Christians (Hebrews 5:13-14) who failed to understand the wicked craftiness of the Roman Leviathan, became hypnotized by ecumenical offers of “peace” (Daniel 8:25) and “cooperation” (2nd Corinthians 6:14-17) from Rome when she could not annihilate them through genocide or warfare. (As soon as the old whore consolidated her power, she always resumed her preferred methods.) Christians in the early church continued to keep the sabbath day through the persecution, although in greatly reduced numbers. Who was “Christian,” and who was a “heretic” or “in a cult,” of course, depended upon who was in position to publish an opinion. Today, Satan has movies, radio, T.V., magazines, newspapers, schools, and corporate “churches” to promote his propaganda.
The denominations have made their stand, and cannot turn from their Sunday doctrines or Roman entanglements. (Men occasionally, repent, convert, and come to the truth, but bureaucracies never do.) Unconverted men find “denominational unity and orthodoxy” more compelling than the truth, and likewise, even most Christians take the path of least resistance when the truth is involved. It is a nearly universal sentiment that, “Keeping the sabbath is a burden,” but the Lord said:
And the burden of the Lord shall ye mention no more: for every man’s word shall be his burden; for ye have perverted the words of the living God, of the Lord of hosts our God. [Jeremiah 23:36]
If anyone thinks the things of the Lord are a “burden,” he does not want to hear about it; as he said, “For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.” (Matthew 11:30).
Nearly all deceivers try to improve the image of Sunday by referring to it as “the Lord’s day.” Most Christians are familiar with this usage, but ignorant concerning its source. (To tell a lie is easy, but to refute it is more tedious and human nature rarely has the time for it.) The apostle John, in Revelation 1:10, referred to his having been taken forward in time to see the future concerning this day, and Satan simply stole the reference and applied it to the first day of the week, as a “Christian” veneer, to facilitate acceptance of the pagan Sunday over the sabbath day, as demanded by Rome. This devilish slight of hand was hatched through the Catholic institution and sold to the world officially by “pope” Silvester, more than three hundred years after Christ. Christians who think “the Lord’s day” (Revelation 1:10) is a biblical reference to Sunday by “early Christians” are truly “made drunk” with the spiritual “fornication” of “the great whore” exactly as it is written of them (Revelation 17:1-2; 19:2; 18:23).
To set the record straight, the “day of the Lord” is neither the sabbath nor Sunday: it is a day when “the heavens . . . pass away with a great noise, and the elements . . . melt with fervent heat” (2nd Peter 3:10); a “day” that shall be “great and dreadful” (Malachi 4:5), a day of “darkness” (Amos 5:18-20; Joel 2:31; Acts 2:20), “destruction from the Almighty” (Joel 1:15), and “vengeance” (Jeremiah 46:10). On that day the Lord comes in “power and great glory” (Matthew 24:29-30), resurrects his “elect” (Matthew 24:31), kills all his enemies (Psalm 110:5-6), and destroys the world by fire (Malachi 4:1). Worldly churches do not wish to believe in a day like this day, and so they have thoroughly removed from themselves the faintest awareness of this coming day of the Lord’s glory, the most spectacular day in the bible. By naming Sunday “the Lord’s day,” Satan thought to simultaneously eliminate from the minds of men both the sabbath day and the day of the Lord: the apostate “daughter” churches willingly and naturally received the deception. Foolish Christians apparently imagine that they can believe the truth along with a lie, or that they can safely follow human traditions AND the bible, but it is impossible to serve two masters (Matthew 6:24). This is an ancient problem.
And Elijah came unto all the people, and said, How long halt ye between two opinions? if the Lord be God, follow him: but if Baal, then follow him.” [1st Kings 18:21]
For two thousand years, Christians have lost “friends” and “family” (Luke 21:16; Matthew 10:34-37) when they “come out” (Revelation 18:4) of the world’s pseudo-Christian religious system. The steeples, crosses, stained glass windows, and corrupt doctrine of their denominations defiantly proclaim their pagan roots. In these last days of raging apostasy, men see the surrounding evil and suppose, by comparison, that their religion (whether it was carefully chosen, randomly fallen into, or inherited from parents) must be acceptable with God; yet they completely overlook that the Lord seeks men, who with the whole “heart” (1st Samuel 12:24), worship God his way:
But the hour cometh, and now is, when the true worshippers shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth: for the Father seeketh such to worship him. God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth. [John 4:23-24]
The true churches of the Lord, that remain today, are not at all what (1st Corinthians 3:9), or where, most men assume they are, but, nonetheless, according to the Lord’s grace and mercy, they are there, and always have been (1st Corinthians 16:19; Colossians 4:15; Romans 16:5; Philemon 2).
In seeking genuine fellowship in Jesus Christ a man will rarely find a local church that is faithful to the Lord by looking in the yellow pages. More likely, by simply doing what he was told (Matthew 5:14-16), he will find others who love the truth in Christ, and that IS the church (Matthew 18:20) as the Lord defined it (Acts 8:3). Such men recognize each other through “the foolishness of preaching” (in the jungle or on the street) by their mutual love of God’s word and faithfulness to his doctrine (1st Timothy 4:16). (If what you love is YOUR RELIGION, that fact will show up like a two pound zit on your nose, and you will certainly get the “fellowship” you deserve (1st John 1:6).)
And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them. [Ephesians 5:11]
Twentieth century Christians consider themselves too “wise” (Matthew 11:25) and too educated (2nd Timothy 3:7) to be deceived by Satan (Revelation 12:9); when the terrible truth is that the American “church” is proud, apostate, false, ignorant, deceived, blasphemous, well fed, and ready for slaughter. Its blind religious leaders and “Christian” media gurus by the thousands are in love with the world (James 4:4) and tellingly unanimous on the sabbath issue. The “false teachers” promoted by the news media, the “loved and admired” institutional Philistines of American religion, flaunt Roman Catholic affiliation and heresy in perverting sound doctrine, including the Lord’s sabbath, and Americans love to have it so. They justify themselves by foolishly comparing themselves with those just like them who live under the same delusions.
For we dare not make ourselves of the number, or compare ourselves with some that commend themselves: but they measuring themselves by themselves, and comparing themselves among themselves, are not wise. [2nd Corinthians 10:12]
For not he that commendeth himself is approved, but whom the Lord commendeth. [v. 18]
America, as its churches, is filled with pride, a glaring signal of its impending doom (Proverbs 16:18). The “haughty spirit” is absurdly without any meritorious foundation, but the coming “destruction” in answer of it is real. The country has adorned itself with evil fruit (Matthew 12:33), yet lives under the delusion that it shall remain in place forever. The Lord has spoken concerning the like.
I also will laugh at your calamity; I will mock when your fear cometh; when your fear cometh as desolation, and your destruction cometh as a whirlwind; when distress and anguish cometh upon you. Then shall they call upon me, but I will not answer; they shall seek me early, but they shall not find me: for that they hated knowledge, and did not choose the fear of the Lord: they would none of my counsel: they despised all my reproof. Therefore shall they eat of the fruit of their own way, and be filled with their own devices. [Proverbs 1:25-31]
America has no future, and few options. Financially bankrupt and spiritually polluted, the nation is ruled by evil men within, and surrounded by its enemies without. Americans know nothing of the wicked powers behind their present course, while their children are “educated” under the supervision of a government that wants them to know even less than their parents. It is far too late in the day for politics or revolution to make any difference, and dismal as the present outlook is, the future for those who are not born again in Jesus Christ is yet infinitely worse, though they are religious, patriotic, and confidant.
Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven. Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not . . . in thy name done many wonderful works? And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity. [Matthew 7:19-23]
The pied pipers of the various daughter harlot churches universally defend the wickedness of their spiritual “MOTHER” while they justify their own personal compromise, mock the word of God, and abuse those who tell the truth and expose the evil. There is a perfect harmony in the blindness of the false churches, the propaganda of the controlled press, and the workings of global government in protecting and covering for “the great whore” - and yet American “Christians” prefer not to know it!
The worldly affections and doctrines of the incorporated “churches” run hot against a simple and pure belief in the bible, instinctively vilifying and bearing false witness against those not in agreement with them; knowing nothing of the workings of God; yet imagining, by their own depraved “denominational” training that they know everything. They count true Christians as enemies, rightly perceiving that these expose them for what they are, if only by their existence; yet, all is exactly as it should be. The methods, motives, and agenda of each side can be easily discerned through the power of “the word of God” (Hebrews 4:12) in the eyes of those who are born again. For this cause Peter warned that:
. . . there shall be false teachers among you, who privily shall bring in damnable heresies. . . . And many shall follow their pernicious ways; by reason of whom the way of truth shall be evil spoken of. [2nd Peter 2:1-2]
and Paul warned:
I charge thee therefore before God, and the Lord Jesus Christ . . . preach . . . reprove, rebuke, exhort with all longsuffering and doctrine. 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. [2nd Timothy 4:1-4]
which has now fully come to pass.
As it is written:
. . . Peter and the other apostles answered and said, We ought to obey God rather than men. [Acts 5:29]
yet, to believe and obey God makes a man appear as a fool to the proud, “sophisticated,” apostate “religious” world; and obedience to the Lord, as Lord, is never the chosen way of those who are willing to deceive themselves.
But be ye doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving your own selves. [James 1:22]
In that hour Jesus rejoiced in spirit, and said, I thank thee, O Father, Lord of heaven and earth, that thou hast hid these things from the wise and prudent, and hast revealed them unto babes: even so, Father; for so it seemed good in thy sight. [Luke 10:21]
The natural man thinks that by his religious affiliation he can placate the God of heaven concerning his rejection of the truth and failure to choose sides in the war. He cannot.
Now therefore fear the Lord, and serve him in sincerity and in truth . . . choose you this day whom ye will serve . . . as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord. [Joshua 24:14-15]
