Preachers, what are you preaching???

When I read such a nonsense I wonder what the priests tell their folks from the pulpits.
Has the Gospel of Jesus Christ now come down to a nice kind of lyrics book from which to "choose well", like choosing a recipe from a cooking book?
Is it not the Holy Spirit that is driving God's people to let God speak through them any more?

Preachers, what are you preaching???

*~*~*~* CHRISTIANS AND DISCERNMENT *~*~*~*

Hi my dear Friends, Brothers and Sisters,
Reading and posting in the English Christian newsgroups for several years now, I found out something important. Some Christians seem to put a big emphasis on formal things like politeness, kindness and the like rather than if people bring the truth. Of course, that is what our parents taught us, and what we learned at school. We usually do not run around and insult people, and especially Christians would not. But there is an exception.In my opinion this is just another subtle method by the devil to spread confusion among the believers who judge others on their use of words but forget how Jesus Christ dealt with those people who taught His people lies.
It is a fact that those who come here or elsewhere come in a nice "dress" to be accepted. Those with Spiritual discernment then do what they need to do: DISCERN. There are several Christians who I know and who have this gift. Whenever they find a "wolf in sheep clothes" they mark them publicly, so others are warned. The style how the hereticks are treated is basically not kind and polite anymore, but this is necessary, so others do not get the impression that the Christians would support them by responding to them. People should know that there are different words one can use to rebuke the devil if he comes and tries to see which of the Christians to devor. Jesus did the same when he used terms that might be helpful to give a Spiritual discernment are, for example:
Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye are as graves which appear not, and the men that walk over them are not aware of them. - Luke 11:44 KJV
Woe unto you, ye blind guides, which say, Whosoever shall swear by the temple, it is nothing; but whosoever shall swear by the gold of the temple, he is a debtor! (17) Ye fools and blind: for whether is greater, the gold, or the temple that sanctifieth the gold? - Matthew 23:16-17 KJV
Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye are like unto whited sepulchres, which indeed appear beautiful outward, but are within full of dead men's bones, and of all uncleanness. - Matthew 23:27 KJV
Ye serpents, ye generation of vipers, how can ye escape the damnation of hell? - Matthew 23:33 KJV
Then said he to the multitude that came forth to be baptized of him, O generation of vipers, who hath warned you to flee from the wrath to come?- Luke 3:7 KJV
Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it. - John 8:44 KJV

Jesus called people "graves", "hypocrites", "whited sepulchers", "serpents", "generation of vipers", "liars", "devil's sons" ... and aseverybody knows, He also even called his follower Peter "Satan" when Satan spoke through him. Not that Jesus was not aware that Peter was not Satan, or that He condemned Peter, someone He dearly loved, by that - no, He addressed the spirit that wanted to stop Him from fulfilling the Father's plan to sacrifice Him for the sake of mankind and was speaking through Peter.

So obviously, Jesus called some people names - not so often his followers but those whom He knew as false teachers of the time, the Pharisees and Scribes, for example. It was not what they taught, but
what they had made from it, namely use it for their own purposes, not acting after the Father's will but with hearts like stone.
The problem is now, however, that whenever a false Christian teacher turns up and preaches his lies in Angel's tongues, the Spiritually gifted Christians with discernment start to oppose him (like Glenn) or her (like Donna), so all the rest of the Christians who might not have this gift so much come and see something evil in the Christian brother or sister, and start to "correct" him or her. Before this (especially in public), however, they should be 99 per cent sure about whom they are defending. I have seen it hundreds of times that they came to help the heretick instead of their own family members. This is really very contra-productive, and being a Christian is not about giving the heretical teachers a good feeling, but rebuke them sharply.
How else could it be made clear who is who in a Christian newsgroup, a public place where people come to find a direction for their lives? Are we Christians here to make a good impression and fellowship with devil's offsprings, or are we here to offer the truth, even if it means to hurt the liars? Jesus did so. If people belong to the devil or if the devil speaks through them, or if people are Spiritual whores who help the false Christian teachers spread their evil lies?However, we should not confuse false teachers or prophets, those who call themselves Christians but bring nothing but Spiritual lies, with sinners. Jesus died with the sinners, and we should try to win brothers or sisters back if they have fallen into sin. Remember what Jesus said:
And Jesus answering said unto them, They that are whole need not a physician; but they that are sick. I came not to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance. - Luke 5:31-32 KJV
But there is a big difference between sinners and a false teacher. False teachers should be answered sharply.
I charge thee therefore before God, and the Lord Jesus Christ, who shall judge the quick and the dead at his appearing and his kingdom; Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; 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 theyheap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; And they shall turnaway their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables. But watch thou in all things, endure afflictions, do the work of an evangelist, make full proof of thy ministry. - 2 Timothy 4:1-5 KJV
And please never forget that we do not mean the people, but always the spirit that is guiding them:
For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand. - Ephesians 6:12-13 KJV

Whenever we address the darkness, calling a spade a spade is no bad way to go. This should not be based on personal likings, though, but on the Word of God and His discernment of the spirits. No Christian would ever refer to Jesus "graves", "hypocrites", "whited sepulchres", "serpents", "generation of vipers", "liars", "devil's sons" as "bad fruits", right?

Thanks for your attention. I love you all! God Bless you!
Jesus is LORD!

A GROWING DEEPER BIBLE STUDY
MEDITATING ON ROMANS 1:18-32
(see and cf. King James Version, Romans 1:18-32)
by Vera Six / Jesus is LORD!

The Bible says that people who do not stay in the doctrine of Christ, do not have God. There are more and more confused people coming to Christian newsgroups and Christian forums who want to make us believe this is not true, and that we Christians just have to accept any form of perversity as a Christian virtue. More and more Christians have fallen into the trap and accept it, and even prefer to attack the messenger of God's Word instead of exposing and rejecting the wicked announcers of this false gospel.

Let us speak of sexual perversities like homosexuality, for example. We Christians *know* that God created this world, and that He made Adam and Eve in the beginning, and not Adam and Steve:  

And the LORD God caused a deep sleep to fall upon Adam, and he slept: and he took one of his ribs, and closed up the flesh instead thereof; And the rib, which the LORD God had taken from man, made he a woman, and brought her unto the man. And Adam said, This is now bone of my bones, and flesh of my flesh: she shall be called Woman, because she was taken out of Man. Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh. And they were both naked, the man and his wife, and were not ashamed. (Gen 2:21-25 KJV)

He created them in His image! God is no pervert, and neither should His creation be.
So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them. And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth. (Gen 1:27-28 KJV)

This is a fundamental part of the Christian faith onto which all other things are built to have a house of stone not built on sand. The devil sends the perverts, however, into our Christian newsgroups or internet forums to undermine that part and claim homosexuality is much welcome with God. Are they fruitful? Can they multiply?
God also says (cf. Romans 1:18-32), however, that their lifestyle is just a sign from Heaven, a sign for His WRATH against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men who should know better. They could know about God by what they can see in their environment, in nature, or in any other good things they are shown. But no, they just ignore God and His eternal power, although they could all see His works in His creation!
They have no excuse not to see who God is.
And if they do see it, they do not glorify Him at all, nor give thanks to Him. They made their own false gospels as can be seen here day in, day out. and their hearts darkened, even so much that they have no scruples to persecute those who bring the real Gospel of Jesus Christ. They think they are clever and know much, but in reality they have become fools and changed what should be God's image into an image of animals. That is why God gave them lust into their hearts to be unclean through them. Now they have to keep on dishonoring their own bodies between themselves. Not only do the men pervert God's creation, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet, but the women as well changed the natural use of their bodies into that which is against nature.

They changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever.

~~*°*~~

Now you know why God gave them up unto vile affections. But they are they doing it? They might even believe it is their own decision - but that is far from the truth. God said through Paul in Romans 1:28 that they have to do it, because God gave them over to a reprobate mind, and filled them with all those perverted things [Paul lists them up in Romans 1:29-31: "Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers, Backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents, Without understanding, covenantbreakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful"- KJV]

Those who reject God even know that their end will be the second death which the Apostle John is speaking of in Revelation (cf. Rev 21:8 KJV: "But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.) They are wicked enough to draw others in, too, and have pleasure to get them do all the pervert things they do themselves.

God says in the end of Romans 1 through the Apostle Paul that all those who rejected God (the homosexuals were just used as an example) are worthy of this second death after the Last Trumpet on Judgment Day.
~~*°*~~
Whosoever transgresseth, and abideth not in the doctrine of Christ, hath not God. He that abideth in the doctrine of Christ, he hath both the Father and the Son. If there come any unto you, and bring not this doctrine, receive him not into your house, neither bid him God speed: For he that biddeth him God speed is partaker of his evil deeds. (2 John 1:9-11 KJV)

~~*°*~~

I am debtor both to the Greeks, and to the Barbarians; both to the wise, and to the unwise. So, as much as in me is, I am ready to preach the gospel to you that are at Rome also. For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek. For therein is the righteousness of God revealed from faith to faith: as it is written, The just shall live by faith. (Rom 1:14-17 KJV)
~~*°*~~

Please feel free to copy and paste this and spread this article as much as you see fit, provided that you do not change the context or the correct wording or authorship. Be warned by Paul: the homosexuals want us to be ashamed of the Gospel. I am not! I can only encourage you to stand up against the gay lobby and PREACH GOD'S WORD as long as they allow you doing it.
I would be glad if you corrected my grammatical or semantical mistakes, so the message can be passed on even better, but please let me know, so I can change the mistakes in the original, too. Thanks!

The Gospel of Jesus Christ is Preached Online! (2)

I have seen people do such a great job in Christian forums and newsgroups, so the darkside could not get a hold there. They are still trying it. But could they ever stop God using us to spread the Gospel? They could not stop Paul. They could not stop Luther. They cannot stop all those who belong to Him. Luther did such a great job when he translated the Bible. God had also given Gutenberg the idea of how to print it economically for the millions of people a short time before, so God's message could be spread rapidly. I think some will still pretend it was an accident that this happened at the same time, but Christians see God's hand in that. I am not against the Roman Catholic Church, just as it handled things badly at Luther's time. I am not against the Roman Catholic Church now, just against those parts where they do not preach the Gospel anymore - which happens in any denomination. I guess there is no perfect church as little as there are perfect humans. But one thing is sure:

Christ will come back to perfect His Church - which are all who belong to Him, no matter the denomination. People in the churches should just stand up for the true Gospel to be preached there.

And if you do are not sure if you belong to God yet or not, do not wait but clear that up! But be careful - not all who call themselves Christians are Christians. If something seems doubtful to you, better be careful and look things up in the Bible yourself. That is the best way how to find out what God wants us to do. You should also listen to sermons in the serrvices, for God speaks through His preachers.

If you have doubts about a church, or even your church, you can contact me any time under my e-mail address verasix@acc-growing-deeper.de.

God Bless You all!

The Gospel of Jesus Christ is Preached Online! (1)

We should all come back to the "Old Time Religion", the Gospel as God gave it to Paul and later to Luther, and to all of His people. It is so sad that most churches do not preach that. Jesus said he would separate the goats from the sheep, however, and if they do not watch it, they are all lost.

The ONLY criterion God will have one day on Judgment Day will be whether a person has believed in Him or not, whether He belongs to Him or not, whether he can point to Jesus' having paid for his sins or not. We cannot get there by our own works.

The moment we belong to God we know about it, and something wonderful happens. He changes us, day by day, hour by hour, minute by minute. We stripe off our old clothes and dress ourselves in the garments he has provided for us. The others recognize we are Christians by our love for the brothers and sisters, as well as for the enemies, not by our posting verses, hymns, holy sounding words. The real Gospel of Jesus Christ cannot be stopped to be preached here and on our websites in the internet.

A really great Christian website that I can recommend:

THE NEW HEALING METHOD FOR PROBLEMS

Hi,
 
I would like to offer you unmoderated Christian newsgroups as a method to get rid of all your problems. You do not believe me? Oh, let me explain... this is how it works...
 
You see, you just come to the Christian web or usenet as a Christian and preach God's Word and to fellowship with others. After a short time a few hyenas will come and try to force you to accept homosexuality as a Christian virtue. Of course you know that God did not make Adam and Steve but Adam and Eve and you will reject the idea, and, as a good Christian, you will reject them and their  false preaching and teaching in a Christian newsgroup, because you do not want to be a partaker of their sinful life or sinful false teaching according to God's Word:
 
Whosoever transgresseth, and abideth not in the doctrine of Christ, hath not God. He that abideth in the doctrine of Christ, he hath both the Father and the Son. If there come any unto you, and bring not this doctrine, receive him not into your house, neither bid him God speed: For he that biddeth him God speed is partaker of his evil deeds. (2 John 1:9-11 KJV)
 
Well, what is next? The hyenas will start a very evil libel campaign against you and your family, and they do not even spare your pastor out of it. Their lies about you are unlimited... finally you will not get a job anymore, your friends will not want to deal with you anymore, and yes, you will become very ill over that, depressive or even suicidal. The hyenas do not care, and as long as you do not accept homosexuality as a virtue within the Christian faith, they will go on - until they come to a level when you can either leave or defend yourself.
 
The clue: YOU LEAVE, and all your problems are gone! The hyenas will even love you from then on and respect you. You can then ask Marlene the witch behind the scenes to arrange an occult health call for only $85.- for you, and everything will be fine afterr she gave you an occult healing, the sun will shine for you again. ALL PROBLEMS WILL BE SOLVED! Is that not a great method? ;-)
 
Jesus is LORD!
 
P.S.: Do not take my recommendation above seriously and take it with humor - but stand up for the TRUE GOSPEL here and wherever you are, or the Christian newsgroups and forums will soon be a place for witches and homosexuals only. I have really met those hyenas in usenet - they are real! But do not forget: God is on our side, right here with us, our Immanuel, and He will judge them when their time has come. Just stay and PREACH the Gospel in the Christian newsgroups. Try to remain anonymous, or they will mercilessly abuse your name. We were not promised a rose garden, were we? We know that we will be persecuted if we are real Christians. So rejoice! This is a place where God's plans are fulfilled. He did not say He would keep us away from problems, but He said,
 
"Lo, I am with you all the time!"
 
Amen.
