Killed in the name of “Allah”

Who’s Christ did this man belong to?

Jacques-Hamel700-e1469538903151-635x357.jpg

As a ministry, we are strongly opposed to Roman Catholicism, her priests, and nuns; we make no apologies about what is said here that this Antichrist Catholic priest whose name was Jacques Hamel tragically died as a result of an act of murder, what is even more tragic is he died an antichrist scripturally speaking.

Rome is not a Christian church and rejects the word of God as Gods authority and bases it upon tradition as its authority.

If we love Catholic people, we need to win them out of the imperialistic Roman Catholic Church and religious bondage called Roman Catholicism, we would be wise to take heed of the words of scripture that the heart is very deceitful and in light of events it is far easy to get caught up in the emotions when we are faced with troubling times, even more so we should exercise discernment as to who’s Christ is it that these people are representing?

If we give recognition that this man died in the name of Christ omitting the important distinctions then we are guilty of legitimising error and damnable heresies that Roman Catholicism truly represents.

This makes no difference even if we are opposed to Rome, we must never allow nor take it for granted that we allow our compassion as a means to ligitimise any impression that these events give’s, whether intentionally and unintentionally, be it out of the best intentions we must be ever so careful that we are not leading many into giving them an excuse in their pursuits for false unity and legitimising their compromising with Idolaters and those who lie about Christ, this does nothing other than to misrepresent his name in doing so leading many away from scriptural authority.

We should not be encouraging further mass ecumenical integration putting any distinction aside between the true Christian faith and False Christian belief, this is easy to do when we are distracted by the events that are in the world and we must be clearer and leave people without any doubts as to what the Biblical position is, and in all matters that we are faced with.

It is right to condemn the brutal and murderous acts that are carried out in the name of Islam. They defy the very commandments of Moses, who said thou shalt not kill and they claim to uphold the teachings of Moses, we some times get the correct and relevant information concerning those who are genuine believers in the evangelical churches across the world, who have not bowed the knee to Rome or Islam, but are persecuted for their faith, we should be praying for them.

These are not even Catholics but these Christian groups that are not be reported and brought to the attention of the churches in western Europe, the report says this Quote;

Turkey (MNN) — As if believers in Turkey didn’t have enough to deal with, evangelical leaders are now receiving death threats from ISIS.

“These threats are against Islamic converts to Christianity,” Rody Rodeheaver of International Needs explains.

“ISIS wants to make an example of them, and are threatening to do just that.”

What we read in the media concerning the catholic church almost causes us to forget where non-catholic believers are suffering for their faith in other parts of the world. We must also bear in mind that we have a responsibility to remember the persecuted believers in other countries as and when it is reported, according to Barnabas Fund:

Buddhist mob threatens to assault Sri Lankan pastor

A mob of around 100 people, led by two Buddhist monks, stormed the Sunday worship service of a church in Sri Lanka on 10 January and threatened to assault the pastor unless he stopped the service. And an authorised Christian burial in a public cemetery was disrupted despite a police protective presence.

“Who are you?” the mob shouted at the pastor of a church in Alawwa, in the Kurunegala District. “Is your church registered? In the event you continue this service we will physically assault you!” Several of the mob then attempted to attack a young female member of the church.

The previous Sunday, a villager had forced his way onto the church premises at around 9 am, during the Sunday worship service, and began to make a video recording of the service using his mobile phone.

When the church pastor attempted to file a complaint about the mob threats, the police officer in charge refused to lodge the incident. He told the pastor that he should stop all worship activities and said that the police would not provide the pastor or the church any protection.

A few days earlier in the neighbouring Puttalam District, a mob of Buddhist villagers began to gather in Serukele as a pastor was preparing to conduct a Christian burial at the village public cemetery at 9 am on 6 January.

Prior to the burial, a group of Buddhist monks had gone to the Assistant Government Agent’s office to complain against Christian burials in the public cemetery after they heard that local Christians were preparing a Christian burial there.

The pastor was denied permission to conduct the burial on the church premises, but police told the pastor to bury the body in a public cemetery close to the church. Police assured the pastor that they would provide protection during the burial.

Yet, in spite of police presence at the burial, villagers began to surround the cemetery. The police officer in charge arrived at the scene and told the pastor to conduct the burial in another village instead. Then, because Buddhist monks had protested, he then ordered the pastor to confirm in writing that he would not attempt to bury any more Christians in the public cemetery.

Sri Lanka’s constitution affords Buddhism “the foremost place”. Buddhist activists demand rights and privileges for their own powerful elite at the expense of other religions, and Christian pastors are frequently harassed by police and local Buddhist monks.

Friday Church prayer meeting attacked by Muslim mob in Abuja, Nigeria

On Friday 15 July, more than 100 Muslim extremist youths attacked a church on the outskirts of Nigeria’s capital, Abuja, as the church congregation gathered for a prayer meeting. According to local reports, the attackers shouted that “only Muslims have the right to pray on Friday” and “Christians are only allowed to worship on Sunday” before the mob began physically assaulting the Christians and causing damage to the church building. Friday is the Islamic holy day, the focal point of which is midday prayers at the mosque. Some of the Christians were badly beaten and it was reported that church windows and musical instruments inside the church were broken.

The attack occurred less than a week after a pastor’s wife was murdered, also in Abuja, and has led Christian leaders to call on Nigeria’s Muslim President, Muhammadu Buhari, to publicly condemn the recent violence against Christians: “To ignore the barbaric attacks on us in Abuja is a dangerous signal. Their silence gives the impression they don’t care what happens to us,” said one pastor.

A Kazakh house church in Mongolia was damaged in an attack

Explosives were thrown into the stove chimney of a Kazakh house church in Mongolia on the night of 27 December, just days after the local church had celebrated Christmas. “Believers decided not to come together for a while,” he said. “They [are] afraid of a repetition of the explosions in the homes of believers.”

Mongolian Kazakhs live mostly in the far-western Bayan-Ölgiy province, which borders China and Russia, and is close to Kazakhstan. In Bayan-Ölgiy province, Mongolian Kazakhs constitute around 80% of the population and are strongly influenced by Islamic traditions.

In Ölgii, capital of Bayan-Ölgiy province, the mosque is placed at an unusual angle within the fabric of the city, orienting the building exactly towards Mecca. The city houses a madrassa (Islamic religious school) and various Turkish and Saudi organisations. Top students who graduate in this area often continue their education in Turkey.

Mongolia as a whole is majority Buddhist, although there is a growing Muslim influence in the country’s capital city, Ulaanbaatar, where – with the help of the Turkish International Cooperation and Development Agency and other Muslim organisations – the city’s first Islamic Cultural centre was opened in 2010.

The Church in Mongolia is small but growing. Some estimate that over 4% of the country’s population is Christian. In capital city Ulaanbaatar, the first group of Christian believers was founded 16 years ago. Today, there are four Christian groups, numbering around 60 converts to Christianity in total.

Converts to Christianity endure a great deal of persecution and many Christians have been arrested by police. Local Muslims and police repeatedly disrupt Christian gatherings and threaten to burn their houses. According to the US Commission for International Religious Freedom (USCIRF), some churches have reported great difficulty in obtaining the official registration that is required for religious groups to function legally.

Hebrews 13:3 Remember them that are in bonds, as bound with them; and them which suffer adversity, as being yourselves also in the body.

We must continue to pray for them and encourage them, I have often been guilty of neglecting this, but if anyone should shine through their faith, true faith is shown by those who are suffering for his name’s sake, these people are an example to all of us.

In spite of the rising threat of murderous Islamic extremists, we hold to the belief that faithful Catholics do not die for the same Christ as we read in Bible and they have not died in the name of the biblical christ, we must recognise those who have, Muslims will make no distinction concerning who is a Christian.

Muslims will even include the Jehovah’s witnesses and Mormons etc and describe them as Christians, they just hate christ, but they do not know what they are speaking about, we have many Christ’s who are in the world and many are false Christs, but they believe by killing, they are doing Allah a great service.

For bible based conservative evangelicals, we must realise for one Christian who is killed as Tertullian said The blood of the martyrs is the seed of the church.

In recent weeks of witnessing I have seen and heard of intimidation of preachers on the streets of our cities by Islamic extremists, who are spouting out venom and hatred towards both Jews and Christians.

Just the other day one such extremist stated that when Muslims pray in the mosques they pray against Jews and Christians.  (this was recorded on tape).  The followers of Christ, on the other hand, pray for their enemies that God would extend His mercy towards them, forgive them and save even them!

Whilst the extremists hate their enemies the followers of Christ love their enemies by doing as Christ taught:

Ye have heard that it hath been said, Thou shalt love thy neighbour, and hate thine enemy.  But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you; That ye may be the children of your Father which is in heaven: for he maketh his sun to rise on the evil and on the good, and sendeth rain on the just and on the unjust.  For if ye love them which love you, what reward have ye? do not even the publicans the same?  And if ye salute your brethren only, what do ye more than others? do not even the publicans so?  Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect. (Matthew 5:43-48)

Pray for the street preachers that God may protect them, and enable them to withstand intimidation and threats by extremists of all shapes and hues, not just Islamic.

Although our preaching may be uncompromising and radical it must be tempered by an attitude of love.  There are those that speak peace and love with their mouths and yet hatred is in their hearts.  It is not what a person says that is important but what they do.  The follower of Christ is no deceiver, they do not have to go out of their way to prove anything, they simply get on with it and do as their Lord bids them.

We must preach and make no alliance with those who claim to be Christians but do not hold to the doctrines of Christ.

As the days and weeks lay ahead may be intense, we must still pray that the gospel will reach out to them.

Maranatha.

Evangelism / Apologetics where has it gone

Evangelism / Apologetics – where has it gone?
The rise of internationalism and interfaith
– Mike Oppenheimer

We are watching a phenomenon, where many churches are becoming less salt and light. Among the many diminishing assets is the last command we were given; to go take the gospel and make disciples. What Jesus came to earth for was accomplished and we are to tell others this. He wants us to share in this joy of changing people’s destiny. But for many this has become more of chore than a joy.

You are to be a light to help others out of the darkness; you may be the only light they get to hear from (not just see). How far does your light reach?

I used to do street evangelism in Waikiki, and in the seedier parts of town, before I began this ministry. When street witnessing and preaching I used to tell people Jesus loves you; they would respond back “I know.” So I started to respond by saying “and He wants you to love him back.”

That turned a few heads and gave the nominal answerer something more to think about.

You see the gospel is only words until it becomes personal, and elicits a response. When they really hear, it can be a yea, or nay, but, it is never neutral. But many have made it neutral by telling others Jesus loves you without any qualifications.

In our time we have so many finding new, more tolerable ways to reach others with good news.

After all, we can’t offend anyone with Jesus’ words. Excuse me, but Jesus went around offending nearly everyone, especially the religious people because he told them the truth.

The gospel is now presented as God has an amazing plan for your life. Join him to have it materialize for YOU. This is plain flattery to have one make a decision. We read of Ananias when sent to Saul, “But the Lord said to him, “Go, for he is a chosen vessel of Mine to bear My name before Gentiles, kings, and the children of Israel. “For I will show him how many things he must suffer for My name’s sake.” (Acts 9:15-16)

Suffer! Well, in our day you are no longer going to hear anyone give an invitation like “come to Jesus to have eternal life and suffer for his namesake, and have rewards after.” In fact, the ones who suffer are those who stand for the truth, the Word, and the gospel; they can suffer from their fellow “Christians” who tell them to keep quiet on what they see wrong, leave things alone.

As a practicing new ager, mixing the occult and other religious practices I was immediately offended when I heard the gospel explained to me correctly. I was directly told that what I was involved with as a new ager was wrong. That was the right thing to do. I was so open that anything could influence me; anything except the truth. That is the one thing I was not open to! Today we have Christians trained this way. They cannot receive the truth when someone is trying to help them back onto the narrow path that has strayed from by following a man’s teaching that was not correctly teaching the Bible.

Let me pause here to tell you a little about myself. I was brought up Jewish, on the Old Testament. I read the Bible, even the New Testament for years. But I could not grasp the crucifixion of Jesus, the gospel, and I reinterpreted his words by the new age teachers and books I learned from. After I was saved, (this June its 30 years). I read the Bible over and over again. Now given understanding by the Holy Spirit, my eyes were open. I was then compelled to keep others from being deceived like I was, being in the new age movement.

The next year we went to the Harmonic Convergence in Hawaii and filmed interviews with the new agers and witnessed to them. At the time, I was being exposed to various forms of Christianity, even the Latter Rain as I went to different churches and meetings. The year after that I began to attend lectures and take courses at the International Bible College through Dr. Fruchtenbaum and others (ariel.org). Systematic theological teaching from knowledgeable men stabilized me from being influenced by the various teachings and how they conducted themselves at church.

Back then, it was a premiere college. The last course I took was on biblical archeology by Dr. Ron Youngblood, a pioneer in the field who since gone on to be with the Lord. Today the college is no longer functioning, and, it is Hawaii’s loss.

First and foremost in God’s will is (a) fulfilling the Great Commission, bringing people into abiding personal relationship with the Lord and (b), the secondary portion of Matthew 28:18-20 which is, as we go – make disciples. Teach them, train them, and equip them from the teachings of Christ and the apostles not by new revelation or prophecy. This means we must first know what the new covenant is; the gospel.

Bible education equips us to win the lost. Apologetics is part of this, it is the backbone of the church; it is a necessity as it equips people to defend the truth, and why there is a gospel. But, if you have not been taught this you will float, and be carried around by various winds of doctrine, which is what we see going on today. The church has put herself in a very bad position by ignoring the use of apologetics.

Everything that the church has held is being challenged. Its no longer are there spiritual gifts today, or is there a rapture (not just is it pre or post). These are minor compared to the fastest growing movement: kingdomizers, dominionism which ignores a Tribulation.

We are summoned and called to do a work (Eph.2:10) we are not to be sleeping, especially as the days get darker. We are to be awake. We are pilgrims, sojourners, aliens to this world. We should not get comfortable, nor should we try to establish Jesus’ kingdom before He returns. We should be building his kingdom in PEOPLE the way Scripture instructs, not His kingdom on

earth. There is a huge difference in these two concepts. Some are being taught that there is no need to wait for the kingdom when we can make it happen now! The Bible teaches His kingdom on earth will not come, it will not be produced until His return (Rev.19). And we return with him as glorified, immortal sinless beings ready to serve under Him in a new world, called the Millennium. This occurs after the Tribulation period. So the whole new apostolic movement of Peter Wagner, Chuck Pierce, the 7 mountain theory of YWAM is completely wrong.

Not only do we have strange doctrines being taught. Some cult groups seem tame compared to the unbiblical supernaturalism exhibited in some Charismatic Pentecostal churches. Division has come and the colors are becoming more contrast, but many still cannot distinguish them.

Nearly everyone has someone they know who is involved in some false spirituality, a cult, new age or false teaching in the church. They offer their church as THE WAY, they make a man THE

WAY. Today it has become easier to mislead than ever before. When the Church does not have

reasonable answers to people’s questions they will go to the cults who are more than willing to take the time to give an answer. That is what we see today.

We need to help exit them out. And when we do there is a transition time where one unlearns what was wrong and have it replaced by the truth. But even after eating poison (false teaching) for so long, eating the genuine food (the truth) can give them indigestion. One needs time to adjust to the new diet and absorb it for nourishment. Whether it Mormonism, Jehovah Witness or new age: contemplative prayer, or a crazed charismatic church that promotes a false spirituality in Jesus name. People need time to heal and begin to grow the right way. And that is where we all need to be involved: discipleship; which is genuine friendship.

Does contending for the faith have to be divisive?

Jesus said, “Do you suppose that I came to give peace on earth? I tell you, not at all, but rather division” (Luke 12:51-53). His ministry brought division wherever He went (John 7:43; 9:16), separating those who wanted to pursue the truth from the error they learned by their religious leaders. There is no reason to repeat mistakes when we have the examples in the Scripture.

Separation becomes the issue in the end. It becomes a matter of one’s safety, for their survival. Why? Because Jesus, Paul, Peter, and John warned of false teaching becoming the norm from within. Biblical separation from false teaching is a matter of your survival.

There has always been a certain amount of discord and division in the Church; this is to be expected. 1 Corinthians 11:18-19 says, “For, in the first place, when you come together as a church, I hear that divisions (heresies) exist among you; and in part, I believe it. For there must also be heresies among you, in order that those who are approved may have become evident among you.”

To test by Scripture what is taught and practiced will give approval to those who correct in doctrine and helps us identify whom we are to separate from, who are wrong in doctrine.

The Apostle Paul also commanded believers, “Now I urge you, brethren, NOTE (identify) THEM who cause divisions and offences contrary to the doctrine which you have learned; and avoid them. For those are such do not serve our Lord Jesus Christ, but their own belly; and by smooth words and flattering speech deceive the hearts of the simple” (Romans 16:17-18).

Paul did not say ignore them, he did not say don’t worry God will take care of them. He said YOU identify them and avoid them to be safe. And … we should tell others to avoid them as well. They are self serving, it is NOT about Jesus. They are feeding their own hunger by flattering people that are not on guard. You know the type, they tell you what great plans God has for you, that you as his child should get all the goodies, or don’t you want to be part of a church that is going to take over the world by doing miracles; or, that the god of the different cultures is the same God. This pig slop is everywhere today.

So we can understand from Scripture that Not all division is bad, sometimes it can be advantageous.

The word “church” comes from the Greek word “ekklesia” which means an assembly, “called out ones” from the world. Eph 4:3 indicates that the church is one body, not several – one and the same Spirit indwells all believers, no matter what denomination or non denomination (or no church you attend). We who believe and are in the new covenant have one Lord. This is a universal church that is not always seen by the eyes or gathered to meet.

Christ’s Spirit fills us as individuals and collectively as the church. We are living epistles of God’s grace to the world. The church grows by newborns, not by our buildings seen in the community but by the work done by individuals that have faith to obey giving the gospel.

Instead, we see churches following men as apostles of new Christianity; like those in the 60’s who followed Timothy Leary or Bhagwan as the apostles of enlightenment.

We are to be a group of people that contends for the faith in the face of opposition. We are to be different than those who want to be involved in all the popular trends that take place. We do not pick up their stale breadcrumbs from the ground but give them true bread from heaven.

As in Acts 2:42-47 We should be living “they continued in the Apostles’ doctrine and fellowship and the breaking of bread and prayers.”

One of our modern presidents was impeached for lying. What if the same process was applied to those behind the pulpit that is no longer spreading the truth? How do you think they would fare?

Who cares, right? After all, we have prophets that are justified at being 10-60% right. That’s what the Kansas City prophets taught (Mike Bickle, Bob Jones -deceased, Rick Joyner, Paul Cain); they will improve in time. We have had enough time to see that they are worse. The media protects the corruption of their political parties, and the Christian media (TV, magazines, even churches) do the same. Pastors and ministers protect the liars and connivers. Denominations, churches will back up a person, it does not matter what they do wrong or how off their teaching is if they are friends with them. I have seen this happen in numerous denominations, but there are always exceptions to the majority of those that ignore or ridicule Biblical truth.

The world is trying to produce a unity

Let us look at some of the changes being implemented here in America. John Kerry talked to graduates about a borderless world. Internationalists (globalists) want to remove borders; which affects the laws and sovereignty of a nation. Thus each nation loses its identity, history and what makes them unique. Globalists want to reshape the world, and nations are supposed to submit to some international law, including the US. America is slowly being turned into an international country as any type of nationalism is rejected. We are being led to join a globalist agenda and abandon our laws based on Scriptural principles to be replaced by UN laws. The only group of people who do not recognize other countries borders is Islam that wants a caliphate to rule over the world.

Again, everything that the Bible teaches is being challenged. We see this day to day in the news, from opening (erasing) borders to the sexes. God built a conscience of morality in man, and we are witnessing an open rebellion against our maker as we look to self, our feelings for the answers.

Officials from 11 states are suing the Obama administration, seeking to overturn a directive from the federal government that public schools should allow transgender students to use the bathroom matching their gender identity. The lawsuit accuses the federal government of overstepping its constitutional powers by taking actions that should be left to Congress or individual states.

The decisions for being a boy or girl to enter a bathroom of their choice because of how you feel on a particular day will certainly be expanded and applied in other areas. This is relativism gone amok, it changes reality itself.

Let me put this in terms we can understand. If one entertains themselves to be something they are not (i.e. not according to their birth certificate), then what is to hold this back from being applied elsewhere? What if I, as a student decided I want to be the teacher that day; whose to say

I’m wrong with the logic being applied? Let’s take it up a notch, What if I’m a general practitioner in medicine and decide to be a brain surgeon for a day to operate; on YOU? A bit discomforting to think about. This kind of thinking is now applauded as progressive thinking produced for a global tolerance. So if I decide to be a pilot (with no training) would you fly on the plane?

Teaching no more genders (nonbinary people; no longer he or she) turns into the abolition of the family, it brings confusion to our social structure, it is a revolution on societal norms, heading us in the direction of a cultural apocalypse. And the same attitude is being promoted inside the church, as they try to remove believers from biblical guidelines so they can form an unholy unity with foreign doctrines and those who do not have a spiritual union with the body of Christ.

This same concept is being spiritually applied by the interfaith or indigenous people movement, where all the cultures gods are accepted as the true God, no difference is distinguished of Jesus being the son of their cultures supreme god (as taught by Don Richardson, Daniel Kikawa). This universal god theorem removes any distinction of truth and falsehood. They are trying to make the false gods of the nations the true God (Father) of Israel. If this continues it will bring evangelism to a fast stop, as they are no longer considered false gods.

The new Christianity, will it fail or succeed?

“Together 2016” is An ecumenical event to be held on July 16 at the National Mall in

Washington featuring Hillsong United with renown evangelical and Catholic speakers and musicians. Confirmed speakers include Francis Chan, Ravi Zacharias, Josh McDowell, Southern Baptist Convention President Ronnie Floyd and National Hispanic Christian Leadership Conference President Samuel Rodriquez. Music will be provided by Michael W. Smith, Hillsong United, Lecrae, Kari Jobe, Jeremy Camp, Lauren Daigle, Casting Crowns, Kirk Franklin, Andy Mineo and Matt Maher, among others.

Both Christians and Catholics alike will be at the prayer and worship event.

Supporters of the event include The Billy Graham Evangelistic Association, the Luis Palau Association, CRU (formerly Campus Crusade for Christ), Intervarsity Christian Fellowship, Premiere Productions, the National Day of Prayer, YWAM, the American Bible Society and other organizations.

“Together 2016 is about laying aside what divides us to lift up Jesus who unites us,” organizer Nick Hall of PULSE told Christian News Network. “We are coming together in historic unity to pray for a reset for our nation.”

“Jesus said that His followers are family. We believe that it is time for a family gathering,” he also said in an official statement. “It’s not about what divides us, but about the one who unites us—Jesus. The world sees division. We can change that.”

Hall announced that Jorge Bergoglio, also known as Pope Francis, will be delivering a video message to those in attendance.

How do we become united with a different gospel of Jesus?

“Worship leader, Matt Maher, who identifies as a Roman Catholic, believes it is his calling to work toward to the unification of Christians and Catholics.”

“He said at OneThing 2015. “I think what the work of unity starts with [is]: It starts with us praying together. It starts with us fellowshiping together. It starts with us having a common respect for each other, a love for each other.”

No, that is where compromise starts; unity is indeed powerful and can be used for good or evil, look at the Tower of Babel for our example. God never calls us to compromise with error or falsehood but to separate from it. Respect is not the same as participation.

“Mike Gendron of Proclaiming the Gospel Ministries is a former Roman Catholic who now teaches evangelicals how to share the gospel with Catholics, said “Nick Hall either does not know the exclusivity of the gospel of God or he does not know the Roman Catholic plan of salvation because they are diametrically opposed,” “We’re divided on how one is born again: Rome says water baptism, the Bible says the work of the Spirit. We’re divided on how one is justified: Rome says faith plus works, the Bible says faith. We’re divided on how one is purified of sin: Rome says purgatory, the Bible says the blood of Jesus. We’re divided on the essentials of the gospel: Rome has other mediators, the Bible says it’s Christ alone,” he explained.

Gendron said that Jesus himself came to divide with truth, and prayed that His Church would be sanctified with that truth. “It was the Lord Jesus Christ who came to divide: He divides with His word and His gospel.”

We see this unity form naturally when we lay down our differences – God’s unity is supernatural, it is done by His Spirit, not man. This tolerance becomes the golden calf of the new religious /political order that is being implemented on all.

We can’t be eclectic, using other spiritual ways with The Way, which is also our truth and the life; even if they call it Christian. By doing this you are saying Jesus is not sufficient, and what He spoke is not necessary to adhere to.

What has this new openness given us?

Let me use our everyday news again. We now face an increase in diseases in America that were once eradicated. These are brought in by illegal immigrants who do not go through a proper screening process and are automatically put in with the public. The church is no different. We have illegal doctrines brought in that infect many because we do not use a screening process to judge what is right or wrong (truth or error). We have one; we just don’t use it. Why? For unity sake. We have convinced ourselves that this is loving our neighbor. So we avoid telling them the

error they are living in, that they are not abiding in the truth. Jesus was not some liberal

peacenik, he didn’t let challenges go, he directly disputed the people’s error openly.

If there is no one holding them accountable when they mislead others, where do you think this will end up? The same attitude working in politics and the church. There are people that have been inserted in our government that do not want America to be America the way it was made or intended. It is the same inside the church, they do not want it to be what it was intended to be from the beginning, they want it changed, changed into man’s image. They want a new foundation, with new apostles. They are removing the biblical borders in front of our eyes.

Those who want to change the church into a newer model are unsatisfied, they have no connection to Christ, except use his name. These “Illegals behind the pulpit” are allowed to stay no matter what kind of doctrinal crimes they commit. These false teachers who have not been called by God are protected by those who do not understand the issues because they are kept from becoming knowledgeable on them. Fear is used to keep them from using the Bible.

Politics has united with religion and the church, too many pastors act like politicians. The church is being run like our current congress. They think they know better, can do no wrong and they take no responsibility. This attitude has blinded them into an attitude that they are not there to serve the people. The church is about serving Christ, serving the people, not the pastor or any single man. Today we have those calling themselves Generals, prophets and apostles of a new era. These are authoritarians who lack true authority from Christ. They are the Nicolaitan’s who are ruling over the people; not serving them (Rev.2:6, 15). We now have an elite anointed class and the super elites. Servanthood is no longer part of the Christianity they teach.

You can’t be deceived by discerning teaching by the Scripture but you can be deceived by not discerning teaching. If you are really filled with the Spirit then you will be filled with the truth, and, you can tell truth from error, because the Spirit of God teaches you spiritual truth, NOT error. You will not compromise on the truth for friends or with those who claim to be leaders with an anointing. You will know when you are being lied to. Let me give you an example.

Kenneth Copeland’s meeting with pastors where he introduced the Pope to everyone and proclaimed the Catholic church believes what they do on salvation, that this Pope is our friend. Supposed Spirit filled charismatic leaders cheered and went along with this new deception that is to result in unity. All one has to do is listen to the Pope and what he teaches. He may be soft spoken, but when his words are measured against the word of God … clearly he is misleading those who listen. They need to understand the error they have wed themselves to.

The Old Testament is for our example, and Jeremiah continues to speak to the repetition of mistakes made today.

Jer. 12:4-6 “How long will the land mourn, and the herbs of every field wither? The beasts and birds are consumed, for the wickedness of those who dwell there, because they said, “He will not see our final end.” “If you have run with the footmen, and they have wearied you, then how can you contend with horses? And if in the land of peace, in which you trusted, they wearied you, then how will you do in the floodplain of the Jordan? For even your brothers, the house of your father, even they have dealt treacherously with you; yes, they have called a multitude after you.

Do not believe them, even though they speak smooth words to you.”

Can a church reach out to those involved in other religious systems without answers? Can we reach out when there is no caring for the lost, or for those who are hurting among us? Can we survive without adhering to the word as our spiritual life? Can we survive when we bring other religious systems to be united with Christ?

May our God give us the wisdom to know what to stand for and the strength to stand.

IT IS BETTER TO DO WHAT IS RIGHT IN GOD’S EYES AND RISK THE CONSEQUENCES FROM MAN, THEN TO DO WHAT IS RIGHT IN MAN’S EYES AND RISK THE CONSEQUENCES FROM GOD.

May you know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ,

Mike Oppenheimer

Statement regarding Dr. Peter Ruckman’s death

Quote from a site exposing Ruckman

The Bible Baptist Bookstore website announced that Peter S. Ruckman died April 21, 2016.

This site will continue and will be updated from time to time with new articles, as there is no doubt that the false teachings and influence of Ruckmanism will linger for many decades.

It can be expected that Ruckmanites will try to shame those of us who warn about Ruckman’s false teachings by claiming that we are “not respecting the dead,” that we are unfair because Ruckman is “no longer around to defend himself,” etc.

However, false teachings need to continue to be denounced. The Biblical admonition to “mark them which cause divisions and offences contrary to the doctrine which ye have learned, and avoid them” (Rom. 16:17) still applies. The bookstore he founded and his followers will continue to promote Ruckmanism far and wide, hence the need to continue to “earnestly contend for the faith” (Jude 1:3).

Statement regarding Dr. Peter Ruckman’s death

I do not wish the death on anyone, but this webmaster is telling the truth about the extremist ruckmanite camp, what evil Ruckman committed to and the ruckmanites who are workmen for the devil himself, when I look at ruckman I do not see christ by looking at his fruit and the fruit of his followers who spout heresy, and worship the KJV bible such as the material, the cover and ink is God to the ruckmanite that is what they deify.

your site is one of the many sites that gives me a good reason why I will never accept anything that comes from this, hater of black people who racist, pro-abortionist, supporters of jew hating preachers like Tex Marrs and a sci-fi writer as peter ruckman is who spouts abominable things.

This hardly fits the profile of some one who is godley

God have mercy on his soul.

I will be sure to expose ruckman to my readers and visitors on this website

 

Jacob Prasch’s Eschatological War, Schism and Roman Catholicism.

After receiving an update from Moriel’s newsletter on the campaign and war against all pre-tribbers by e-mail, This has just been sent to all on Moriel’s mailshot, Jacob would tar everyone with the same brush as the cults and false teachers who distort the view of the Trinity, let hope the Lord puts a stop to his nonsense, that he is saying that pre-tribbers attack the faith, making this a gospel issue and an issue of salvation in his words putting anyone who is not a post-tribber outside the gospel and this was also stated by Joe Schimmel, this is not an issue of the Trinity, the gospel or salvation, Jacob and Joe has crossed the line and Jacob and Joe is causing schisms that I cannot be part of.

On this occasion, he places the responsibility of the “pre-trib” heresy on Dr. Tom Ice and Paul Wilkerson, but then on other sites it is made clear that post-trib doctrine is essential doctrine on par with the gospel, referenced by Joe Schimmel’s website makes mention of the DVD (not the trailer) in “Left Behind or Led Astray,”xv is that the Pretrib teaching provides a platform for a most serious error which undermines the very Gospel itself.

This statement is making post-trib views essential, to be included with the Gospel, for Jacob and Joe Schimmel and his post trib friends are attempting to place the Post-trib teaching on the same footing as other major doctrines of the Church, hence the quote above and comments made on their Facebook pages, websites, books and newsletters.

My question since Jacob is in agreement with Joe Schimmel saying that Pretrib teaching undermines the gospel, this places all pre-tribbers under this category, then Joe and Jacob are making this an issue of salvation basis of Romans 1:16 that the gospel is the power of God to salvation, Jacob and Joe are intently putting pre-tribbers outside the faith, What they need to answer is this, since when are pre-tribbers outside the faith and how exactly is placed alongside a pretext for every false teacher and cult that exist in the world today is beyond me?????

Jacob needs to get his house in order, as does Joe Schimmel and rid themselves of compromise with other ecumenists this includes David Noakes and Clifford Hill of Moggerhanger House Park, Paul Mcguire and the ecumenists in the DVD Left Behind led Astry that Jacob defends, along with others people that I have listed on the UK Apologetics Library Website.

Joe Schimmels involvement with other groups and organisations and those ministries who are going along with Sun Myung Moon’s follower and part of the unification church, Clyde Rivers this includes the pre-tribbers, amongst other false teachers who are promoting lordship salvation heresy (works gospel which is another gospel), etc, these are working in unity to oppose all those evil heretical pre-tribbers aligning them with the idea that pre-trib is the basis for religious cults this is not a true statement, we know of cult leaders who held to post trib views such as David Berg (Children of God sex cult), the Jehovah’s Witnesses, Mormonism, World Wide Church of God (Armstrongism) etc

This only shows that Jacob Prasch, Joe Schimmel and others will stand in agreement to fight against anyone who is not a post tribber or hold to post trib beliefs, it is my belief that this is far more of a serious issue then the post/mid/pre-trib issue itself, I must point and stress in this that there are post-tribbers who are disgusted with Jacob and Joe’s approach on this.

I also need to point out that the same ecumenical compromises do occur in the pre-trib camp, this includes people like Arnold Fructambaum of Ariel Ministries who is part of and defends one of the World Council of Churches supported, Lausanne Movement and I must emphasise some other pre-trib proponents are also teaching that pre-trib teaching is essential for salvation, not all pre-tribbers hold to this.

It could be just as easy to point out that the basis for post-tribulation teaching is Roman Catholicism itself, even stated that post trib views are part of Roman Catholic theology, it can be said here that Jacob Prasch is in agreement on this with the Roman Catholic Church, Rome undermines the gospel in all its teachings.

Jacob Prasch and Joe Schimmel is the focus here; but I am not taking the same approach as what Jacob is doing by taring all post tribbers with the same brush, in saying post-tribbers are Catholics or agree with Catholicism, but what I am saying is that all Roman Catholics hold to post-trib beliefs and the Catholic Church teaches there is no rapture of the church during the time of great tribulation.

CCC Number Vatican Core Belief 2642 The Revelation of “what must soon take place,” the Apocalypse, is borne along by the songs of the heavenly liturgy 127 but also by the intercession of the “witnesses” (martyrs).128 The prophets and the saints, all those who were slain on earth for their witness to Jesus, the vast throng of those who, having come through the great tribulation, have gone before us into the Kingdom, all sing the praise and glory of him who sits on the throne, and of the Lamb.129 In communion with them, the Church on earth also sings these songs with faith in the midst of trial. By means of petition and intercession, faith hopes against all hope and gives thanks to the “Father of lights,” from whom “every perfect gift” comes down.130 Thus faith is pure praise.

CCC Number Vatican Core Belief 675 Before Christ’s second coming the Church must pass through a final trial that will shake the faith of many believers.574 The persecution that accompanies her pilgrimage on earth 575 will unveil the “mystery of iniquity” in the form of a religious deception offering men an apparent solution to their problems at the price of apostasy from the truth. The supreme religious deception is that of the Antichrist, a pseudo-messianism by which man glorifies himself in place of God and of his Messiah come in the flesh.576

CCC Number Vatican Core Belief 676 The Antichrist’s deception already begins to take shape in the world every time the claim is made to realize within history that messianic hope which can only be realized beyond history through the eschatological judgment. The Church has rejected even modified forms of this falsification of the kingdom to come under the name of millenarianism, 577 especially the “intrinsically perverse” political form of a secular messianism. 57

CCC Number Vatican Core Belief 676 The Church will enter the glory of the kingdom only through this final Passover, when she will follow her Lord in his death and Resurrection. 579 The kingdom will be fulfilled, then, not by a historic triumph of the Church through a progressive ascendancy, but only by God’s victory over the final unleashing of evil, which will cause his Bride to come down from heaven.580 God’s triumph over the revolt of evil will take the form of the Last Judgment after the final cosmic upheaval of this passing world. 581

The RCC teaches that Contrary to the rapture doctrine, Christians will not be spared the great tribulation this is the exact same teaching, doctrine and theology that Jacob Prasch now holds to and is in agreement with the references given in the Roman Catholic Catechism, on the other hand Jacob then rightly so condemns other core fundamental Catholic teaching, in principle this would make Jacob contradictory towards Moriel Ministries that he founded, but we must excuse and make allowances for the name calling and every other remark towards Jacob’s peers and or his critics.

It is for the reason mentioned that I cannot support or endorse Moriel Ministries and Jacob’s recent outburst, behaviour and attitude this had have now led me to write Moriel and GFM off.

Frankly I am getting board of those eschatology mud pie slinging cowboys, but it won’t end here, we need to put our eschatological differences aside regardless of whether you are a pre, mid or post-tribber, as time is short and souls need to be saved, in my experience of 13 years of street preaching, I have not seen anyone who is from the camp of Moriel Ministries, specifically the leaders and teachers who has not been actively taking the gospel to the streets of Manchester and London in the UK.

Here is a short quote below from Jacob.

The Hermeneutical Downgrade of Core Doctrine

In order to justify the absence of an exegetical basis for the Pretribulational Rapture teaching, and partly arising from its elevation to cardinal status, there have been some recent attempts by senior figures with the Pretrib Movement to hermeneutically downgrade other doctrines such as the Trinity, by claiming that they are arrived at in the same manner as the Pretribulational Rapture teaching, thus attempting to place the Pretrib teaching on the same footing as other major doctrines of the Church.

The doctrine of the Trinity can be demonstrated exegetically by the contextual use of numerous passages in their respective contexts, using sound hermeneutical methodology. From our observations, it appears that the Pretribulational Rapture teaching can only be arrived at by collecting together scriptures that have been contextually eviscerated, by reading presuppositions that have no biblical foundation into the texts and by full blown denial of explicit statements by Jesus and the Apostles.

We do not believe these methods to be compatible with a sound biblical scholarship. We believe that not only is this comparison with the doctrine of the Trinity false, it is actually a direct attack on the faith once delivered to the saints, for it provides a convenient pretext to cult groups and false teachers (who deny fundamentals of the faith) to claim orthodoxy, because they often use the same kind of hermeneutical methodology as Pretrib proponents use to arrive at their teaching.

This downgrade is not only being propagated by senior figures within the Pre-trib Movement, such as Thomas Ice (Head of the Pre-trib Research Centre) and Dr Paul Wilkinson, (a senior figure in PWMI) but it is being promoted and endorsed by T.A. McMahon and Berean Call, both on his radio programme and at the Berean Call Conference in Dr Paul Wilkinson’s presentation.

Message to the University of Sheffield (UK)

Dear University of Sheffield I stand with the student that quoting the bible on the grounds of his disapproval of SSM, should not be banned at your university after all the english langauge was developed thanks to william Tyndale if your university does not permit the voice of descent then you are clearly against freedom of speech as a former employee at the university of Manchester for 12 years the academic board would never resort to such actions taken by students that wish to express their individuality and views regardless of controversies, the whole process of the development of knowledge was born from voices that may not go alone with the political classes that you have clearly demonstrated that you have contradicted the who point of why universities came into being in the first place.
 
Maybe you should go further than this ban the bible (IT IS CLEARLY A HOMOPHOBIC BOOK) this is where it will lead even in the university that anyone reading its homophobia literature such as the bible is seen to be homophobic or quoting from the bible for that matter clearly needs to be burned to the stake, your university wrote about George Marsh who was a protestant martyr who was burned at the state for his controversial and offensive ideas that even the public delighted in seeing the inquisition.
 
I will make it known that your university will not allow or tolerate christians that do not go along with the SSM fundamentals, the university does behave like the grand inquisitors of 1556, there is nothing illegal or unlawful about quoting the bible, we even have the triple lock protections to uphold our religiously held and fundamental beliefs in public and the rights under the equalities act and the human rights act, to have a dissenting voice why does the university fail to uphold the law in this regard.
 
Just because a person regardless of views would express idea’s that are unsavory then the university would persecute those people, why don’t you place a restriction on the use of foul langauge as the they have done in the city of Salford at Salford quays anyone who is caught swearing gets fine or be taken to court.
 
You have sent the message to add christian parents in the UK that their children are not welcome at your university unless they reject the bible.
 
So now I challenge the university to take legal action against me for saying that SSM is a mockery of real natural marriage between one man and one women in spite of dissenters.
