Answer to your question:
"What do you
The Gospel is at the bottom of the page
We often get E-Mail
asking, "What do you believe?" So, I thought I would give you my
"belief system" as I have learned it from the Bible. It comes in 66
sections, one for each book of the Bible. If you were hoping to
disqualify me because I am in some cult or denomination, forget it.
I belong to no organization on earth other than a local church.
I have NO creed but the
King James Bible.
I need no other
I need no other creed;
It is enough that Jesus
And that He died for me.
You will see in the flow
of this "Belief System" that I have dealt with the classic "Doctrinal
Statement" of most Bible believers. But, it is strictly within the terms
of the Bible.
If you are not yet a
believer in Jesus Christ, I believe you will be helped here to see what
Bible believers hold as precious doctrines of their faith. If you are now
ready to confess your faith in Jesus Christ, please take the time to read
the Gospel of John clear through at one sitting. If you can agree with God
that you are a sinner who cannot earn his own salvation, then read Romans
10:9-11, and do what it says to do to receive the gift of salvation from
PART ONE-- OLD
I believe God created the heavens and the earth in six 24
hour days. God rested the 7th day, and he did NOT create Adam the
8th day as is taught by certain blithering idiots. I believe that
the daughters of man and the sons of God in Genesis had nothing to do with
angels. Yannis, reptilians, Greys, ancient giants, modern day
incubi and succubi, and any other ETs or funny friends of Hollywood,
are devils, and have nothing to do with Genesis. I believe God sent
a universal flood to cover the earth, and only four married couples
survived that flood. I believe that Shem, Ham, and Japheth, the sons
of Noah, are the three fathers of three distinct human races which God
does not want confounded by inter marriage (Chap. 10). I believe
that God wants all men to eat red meat (Chap. 9).
I agree with Jehovah in his great solution to sin found
in Chapter 19.
I believe that about two million Jews crossed the Red Sea
(not a swamp) on dry land.
For the 10% of you who did not click out after that first
statement :-), I believe Moses wore the same pair of shoes for 40 years.
I believe the Ten Commandments, and the Law of Moses, are the basis
of conviction of sin, or the "schoolmaster," which convinces sinners of
all ages that they are fallen and in need of a Savior. After
salvation in this Age of Grace, a saint is no longer under the "yoke of
bondage" of the law, and all efforts to Hebrewize the Lord's Church are
the works of devils. Outside the Lord's Church, the closer any
nation sets its course to God's law, the better life will be in that
nation, though it is NOT the Church's task to enforce this law in open
society-- That is Caesar's acre.
I believe that any civil law not based upon the
foundation of Moses' Law (the Torah as fulfilled in Christ's law), in
Exodus and Leviticus, is a mongrel law and hatched in hell by Satan.
I believe that when evil men like Balaam prevail, God can
cause a jack ass to rebuke those men. I would rather be a jack ass
than a profane prophet (Chapter 22-23). I believe that God does not
want the races confounded, but if a man and woman do marry outside of this
ideal, it is no longer any of my business-- "One flesh" is higher law than
racial bounds of habitation (Chapter 12).
I believe that there has never been a greater human
prophet of the law than Moses (34:10). Moses Maimonides was a
mongrel wimp who didn't even write in Hebrew but in Arabic in deference to
his Muslim overlords. Moses did signs and wonders and saw God in Sinai--
this I believe. I believe that I shall see Moses in the Kingdom of
Messiah eyeball to eyeball.
I believe that the walls of Jericho fell to the ground as
God's saints shouted. I believe there are only two choices for man--
Baal or God. No choice is a choice for Baal (Satan).
I believe in the God of Ehud, Japhtha, Gideon, Deborah,
Barak, and Jael. I believe that the nation which has known God and
turns to idols and paganism will be destroyed.
I believe a Moabite Gentile outcast woman added her blood
to the lineage of Jesus Christ. If God received her into the
Messianic heritage, He will also adopt me into His Royal Priesthood if I
believe on the Lord Jesus Christ.
I believe that God only uses men who are humble enough to
go looking for lost jack asses (Chapter 8). I believe that it is
witchcraft to spare even one heretic from divine retribution, now or in
eternity (Chapter 15).
I believe that David's throne will be restored to
Messiah, NOT during the Church Age, nor by human zeal, but in the coming
Kingdom of Messiah. The next throne in Zion will be the throne of
Satan and/or the Pope. Any local church which sends funds to sustain the
state of Israel at this time is funding Satan's program.
I believe Solomon's temple was built for Jewish worship,
and it is NOT a type of anything in the New Testament, unless Jesus or New
Testament writers said so specifically. The Old Testament temple is
NOT a type of my mind, body, or soul. I believe that death and hell
are the only destiny of very religious prophets and preachers who lead
God's people to worship any god other than Jehovah (Chapter 18). I
believe that one man and God make a unanimous majority.
I believe that mixed worship, combining the holy and the
profane as in Charismania, is an abomination to God (Chapter 17). I
believe that those who reject God's rule over them will be lead captive
into sin and defeat.
I believe that God expects real men of His to be mighty
and unpredictable in zeal (Chapter 11).
I believe a saint is a fool to go help backslidden
religious rebels out of a bind they got into by rebellion against God
I believe that revival comes, not by laughing, barking
like dogs, vomiting, and jerking about, but revival comes by repentance
and weeping for sin (Chapter 10). There is no "River of Renewal" in the
Word of God.
I believe that EVERY man who is faithful to God WILL be
enticed by Satan's servants to go down to "fellowship" with backsliders
and pagans (Chapter 6). ALL ecumenism and synergism today with "the
area ministerial council" is gross compromise. So is fellowship with
ANY apostate, including joining together to "win souls" as practiced by
thousands of Evangelicals and Fundamentalists today.
3:3) I believe that it is wicked for saved saints to marry unsaved sinners
I believe God will not put His holy Name and blessing on
that which is based upon human zeal alone, but He WILL get the Glory.
I believe that a truly godly saint will be attacked by
counterfeit believers who have counterfeited all reasoning. I believe it
is wicked to quote the sayings of "Job's Friends" as proof texting in a
Bible teaching session.
I believe that the Book of Psalms is first and foremost a
book of doctrine, not just some clever poetry to put in Hallmark greeting
cards. I believe that the zeal and might of worship and praise of David's
day is missing in Fundamental churches today. This should cause us to ask
the Holy Ghost to stir us up again. Selah!
I believe that a woman who goes out "looking good" for
any man other than her own husband is worse than a whore. At least
whores have enough self-respect to ask to be paid to undress. Church house
hustling mammas just give it away free, and their wimpy husbands think it
is cute. A godly local church pastor will tell these wimpy husbands to
take their slut and move on. I did this once, and the woman was so
troubled that she repented and later thanked me for it.
I believe that a godly woman will be totally "fulfilled"
as she rejoices in keeping the home as her full time job (Chapter 31).
I believe that a fool must be identified as a fool
publicly, just as Proverbs speaks frequently of fools of every kind. And,
YOU are a fool if you think the Christian life is motivated by tact
instead of open zeal. (cf II Corinthians 7:11)
SONG OF SOLOMON
I believe that the Song of Solomon is ONLY a manual on
marriage. Nowhere in the New Testament is the Song of Solomon
referred to as a type of Jesus and the Church. I believe that if
Song of Solomon were practiced literally as the doctrine of marriage,
there would never be adultery in the Lord's Church.
I believe that all of life is vanity except soul winning,
edifying saints, and worship of God (corporately or alone). This
vanity is given to man by God to fill his days with joy and to reward man
for man's hard work and correct attitudes. The vanity of the wicked
is given to him to punish him or make him desire to be a child of God.
Some vanity is sinful, but only if it cannot be taken with
thanksgiving and doctrine. (cf I Timothy 4:4) My favorite vanity is
enjoying my wife and family-- Second is a good cup of Arabica coffee and
halwa. Good vanity helps us learn to order our days wisely and not
go crazy, but we must be careful to remember that enjoying good vanity
gets us NO reward in the Glory.
I also believe that a man can start out very well, with
God's wisdom and piety, and still give himself to folly and madness. By
the grace of God, I desire to avoid this sorry experience, as Solomon
warns me in his preaching.
I believe that a man who never weeps over sinners is a
slow belly (cf Ezekiel 24). He is NOT qualified to be used of God
except as a spiritual chamber pot-- a castaway (cf I Cor. 9:27).
I believe that the "original manuscript" of Jeremiah was
seen by only three men, and then it was burned. The second
manuscript was thrown in the Euphrates River, and the "oldest manuscript"
is the third edition. This teaches me that the oldest manuscript is
pointless as long as my God promises to preserve His Word to all ages and
for eternity, which I believe. My King James Bible is just as
accurate and complete as the first, second, and third editions of
Jeremiah. Thus, my KJV has additions made by God which the oldest
manuscript of Jeremiah did not have. I believe that Babylon,
restored by Saddam Hussein, must become the seat of world religious power
(cf Zech. 5) and then be totally destroyed by the earths armies before the
Kingdom rule of Messiah (Jer. 50-51).
I believe that Jesus Christ was prophesied, long before
He came, by the prophets like Isaiah. I believe that the verse,
14:12 How art thou fallen from heaven, O
Lucifer, son of the morning! how art thou cut down to the ground, which
didst weaken the nations! is speaking of Satan, and He is
not "the morning star" as the NIV states. The NIV in this one verse
has proven itself to be the work of damnable blasphemers who were inspired
from the toilet of hell, and I say that charitably of course. To
promote this blasphemy will be grounds for damnation at the Great White
Throne Judgment. Those who know this about the NIV, yet persist in using
the NIV, may well have damned themselves to hell, no matter what wonderful
church they attend, and no matter what seminary that whited their
Damascus, the oldest continuously existing city in the
world, must be leveled and wiped off the face of the earth soon before
Messiah comes to earth to rule.
I believe that if God tells a man to go play in the dirt
with a piece of tile and a pan and to lie on his side there for 390 days,
he better do it, even if his friends think he is crazy (Chapter 4).
If a man does not rebuke backsliders, God will require it of the man
whom God called to rebuke that man (Chapter 3). Rebuke is essential
to a "well rounded" ministry and a complete resumé. I believe that
the "dry bones" (Jews) of Israel and Judah are scattered all over the
world today, and shortly Messiah Jesus Christ will gather those Jews again
to initiate His literal 1000 year reign in the Middle East. Those
wimps who will not take these promises literally are treacherous
scoundrels, right to the pinnacle of their PhD (Piled Higher and Deeper)
pilum lapidus in Calvin Seminary. I believe Gog and Magog, Russia,
along with Germany, will soon march against Israel and be defeated by
Jehovah without the Pentagon's help.
Quote: Orrie Cochrane-- Soul Winner-- When I asked what
PhD meant one Sunday morning, Orrie exclaimed: "Phooey and Damnation" This
is as close to the truth as I think one can make it.
I believe the the three Hebrew children walked around in
a furnace with Jesus Christ. The book of Daniel tells of the end
times and the literal tribulation of the nation of Israel (NOT the Church)
in the near future. Part of chapter 9, and the rest of Daniel, has
not yet been fulfilled. The Church is NOT found in the book of
Daniel, so the Church does not go through the Tribulation, for the Church
is made up of those who believed Jesus is Christ.
In the verse, Daniel 11:38 But
in his estate shall he honour the God of forces: and a god whom his
fathers knew not shall he honour with gold, and silver, and with precious
stones, and pleasant things.-- The "God of forces" is
Jehovah God whom Antichrist will pretend to honor verbally, along with
Baal and himself. Any Bible which makes the "G" in God lower case is
a piece of trash, even if it is a KJV, and the man who teaches that the
"God of forces" is Satan-- that man is a blasphemer.
Chapters 5 at the end, and the first verses of 6, teach
me that Israel will be restored to Jehovah after two thousand years from
the rejection of Messiah. ALL those who teach that Israel's promises
are to be fulfilled to the Church are arrogant impostors on the Lord's
Church and ought to be excom-municated and sent to Tema to hoe fava beans
and tread the wine press.
I believe that Chapter Two of Joel has absolutely NOTHING
to say about the Gentile Church as claimed in Pentecostalism. The
tongues speaking in Joel and Acts were the experience of the early Jewish
Church ONLY! The Jewish Church at Pentecost received a limited time
offer of the Holy Spirit to Israel in the early Church Age. They
refused it, so the unfinished prophecies in Joel will be fulfilled FOR THE
JEWS during the coming Great Tribulation to convince them that God has
indeed come to Israel. To confound this with the Times of the
Gentiles creates a ground for chaos in doctrine, as is seen in the loonie
bin in Toronto Blessing, Branhamites, Brownsville, Promise Keepers,
British Israelism, Reconstructionism, and many other doctrines according
to Mother Goose.
I believe that BEFORE two can walk together (3:3), they
MUST have already agreed. This does NOT mean they set aside whatever
they disagree on in order to walk together with an heretic.
I believe the most useful ministers of the Lord's Church
are common men who are not too lofty to herd sheep and pick figs.
Church patriarchs who have risen above the common man are worthless
imposters who ought to be thrashed with a hickory switch, beginning with
Os Porci in Rome.
Like Edom, I believe that pride of heart will result in
calamity in my life or that of the Lord's Church.
I would rather obey God right away than to be "part of
the miracle" of the fish's vomit.
I am not to hold anyone unworthy of hearing the Gospel of
Jesus Christ. I am not to complain when God has mercy on wicked men
who repent. After all, I too was once a poor damned sinner and slob.
In the last days, Messiah will establish a real house of
rule in Mount Zion which will be exalted above all the earth. I
believe that the nations as we know them today will be destroyed and
replaced by humble and pleasant kings and policies.
I believe that Nineveh was destroyed in the past
according to prophetic prediction. I can depend on God to keep all
of his promises.
I believe that Jesus Christ will gather the Jews,
probably from Tema, and bring them into Jerusalem after He has killed all
the rebels of the earth who rise up against Him.
I believe that most Zionists are counterfeit Jews who
will have intelligence with the prince who shall come. They will be
destroyed during the Tribulation so that true believing Jews can inherit
the Kingdom with Christ (Chap. 3).
The following passage was delivered to Judah after they
returned from the captivity in Babylon. While God intended it
primarily to the Jews, nevertheless; it DOES show what He will do with any
nation which comes to know Him personally and then turns back to follow
the flesh and the Devil. I believe that VERY soon, natural disaster,
terror from space, or some outside enemy will destroy the happy, worldly,
and self-indulging life of the Western world. America will fall
horribly into the pit of despair for her murder of 40 million unborn
babies and for electing leaders over the past 50 years who were racist,
adulterous, and godless pagans. Mark it down!!
Haggai 1:1 In the second year of
Darius the king, in the sixth month, in the first day of the month, came
the word of the LORD by Haggai the prophet unto Zerubbabel the son of
Shealtiel, governor of Judah, and to Joshua the son of Josedech, the high

say, The time is not come, the time that the LORD'S house should be built.
3 Then came the word of the LORD by Haggai the prophet, saying,

5 Now therefore thus saith the LORD of hosts; Consider your
6 Ye have sown much, and bring in little; ye eat, but ye have
not enough; ye drink, but ye are not filled with drink; ye clothe you, but
there is none warm; and he that earneth wages earneth wages to put it into
a bag with holes.
7 Thus saith the LORD of hosts; Consider your ways.
8 Go up to the mountain, and bring wood, and build the house; and I
will take pleasure in it, and I will be glorified, saith the LORD.
Ye looked for much, and, lo, it came to little; and when ye brought it
home, I did blow upon it. Why? saith the LORD of hosts. Because of mine
house that is waste, and ye run every man unto his own house.
Therefore the heaven over you is stayed from dew, and the earth is stayed
from her fruit.
11 And I called for a drought upon the land, and upon
the mountains, and upon the corn, and upon the new wine, and upon the oil,
and upon that which the ground bringeth forth, and upon men, and upon
cattle, and upon all the labour of the hands.
Just before the Kingdom reign of Messiah Christ, which is
just around the corner, God will exalt Israel and the Jews who are left
after He destroys arrogant Jews and rebels in Israel (Zephaniah 3).
God will exalt Israel. Thus, we are now just at the door of
the next great era in human history. America is leading the
rebellion against God, and America is concerned with one thing alone-- the
good life and her toys. So, God WILL destroy America very soon.
I am delighted, for we need to leave the profane and sloppy Agape
world Church behind, and we need to get on into the glorious Kingdom of
Jesus Christ. Even so, come Lord Jesus.
I believe that the kingdom promised to Israel is very
real, and it is all in the future as promised by the prophets.
I believe that a woman, probably the world Whore system,
will soon be bundled up and carried by dirty spirits to Shinar and Babylon
to establish world religious or political rule (Chap. 5).
I believe that the Lord God of heaven still hates putting
away (divorce). The church (or preacher) who does not excommunicate
any saint who causes divorce is a reprobate and retrograde church. The
church who exalts a two time divorced and remarried pastor is in arrogant
rebellion against the person of Jesus Christ.
I believe that to use the "windows of heaven" in Malachi
to teach legal tithing in the Church Age is nutty as a fruitcake. I
Corinthians 16 is the place to teach giving in the Church Age.
I believe that God has a book in heaven in which He
records the zeal of all those in all ages who speak to one another of
righteousness and judge sin openly. I would count one entry in that
book after my name of infinitely higher value than the accolades of the
most profound and high browed potentate.

However; we also reject the other extreme which says that

their salvation. All saints, or believers, in every dispensation,

For purposes of dispensational truth, I believe that the
Old Testament ends at the end of chapter 24 of Matthew. Jesus tells
me in Matthew that Jonah was swallowed by a "whale," and those who reject
this are attacking the person of God. I do not believe that Matthew
was a redactor or editor who put words in Jesus' mouth. Every word
in Matthew was spoken into the canon by the breath of God the Holy
Spirit-- Talbot Seminary, Dallas Seminary, Bob Jones Unifarsity, and Biola
Unibarfity scholars notwithstanding. All men who claim that Matthew
added his own uninspired notions to his Gospel will burn in Hell for
eternity, which is just and right.
The discussion of the alleged "synoptic Gospels" is a
large load of horse manure. The Gospels each stand alone as distinct
works of the Holy Ghost who made them alike and different just as He
chose. The last part of Mark 16, all the way to the "Amen" of verse 20, is
just as much part of the Word of God as any other, and 15 early church
fathers quoted it in proof texting. All who question it as the Word
of God are blasphemers and will burn in Hell according to Revelation 22.
That is fine with me, for I would not want the idiots hanging around the
Throne of Jehovah blabbering, "We believe that these verses were not in
the original manuscripts."
In Luke Jesus told the disciples to get a sword for
self-defense after He went back to heaven. I too may take up a
sword, but only in self-defense in secular situations. This weapon
CANNOT be used to enforce God's order in the earth as suggested by
Reconstructionists, Identity freaks, and the Militia.
Luke teaches me that Jesus never sinned, from the cradle
to the cross. For this reason, Jesus can be my substitute, pay the
price for my sins, and redeem my life from destruction.
I believe that Jesus Christ was from eternity in the
beginning, and by Jesus were all things in the earth created. I
believe that a man can and must be born again by believing on the Lord
Jesus Christ with repentance for sin (Chapter 3). I do confess my
faith in The Lord Jesus Christ-- with the mouth confession is made unto
salvation. I believe that Jesus prayed for me in chapter 17 to secure me
in a relationship with God as absolute as the relationship of Jesus in the
Godhead. I cannot get out of His hand, not even by my own efforts,
which mongrel error is taught by many Pentecostals and Holiness
I believe that the book of Acts is a transitional book,
and the first 9 or 10 chapters are history of the Jewish Church, but they
are not necessarily to be duplicated in church life teaching for the Times
of the Gentiles. Water baptism is not active in saving anyone,
rather; water baptism is only given to those who are already completely
born again (Chapter 8). The Old Testament Jew in the early Church
was "saved" in the OT model, so his baptism came AFTER salvation, not
I believe that the Apostle Paul, as well as all of the
Apostles, went to the Gentiles with the Gospel of faith which later
resulted in, water Baptism of immersion, church fellowship in the homes,
singing hymns, preaching long sermons, the Lord's Supper, Christian giving
out of love in the giver's heart (NOT tithing, and not faith promise
gambling), casting out devils, and persecution, among other things.
I believe that if the Apostle Paul knew that some
preachers took 10 years to preach through Romans, he would be hopping mad.
I agree with the Holy Ghost in the description of unnatural sin in
Chapter One, and I too have "given them over..." I believe that all have
sinned, that salvation is of the Jews (Jesus WAS a Jew you know), that any
man who is in Christ is 100% NEW, that with the mouth confession is made
unto salvation, that there is therefor now no condemnation, and that we
are to mark them which cause division and offense contrary to the doctrine
of the Apostles-- AND avoid them.
I believe that tongues speaking, even in the early Jewish
Churches, was chaotic and prone to trouble. It quickly dropped away as the
canon of the Word was completed. This is proven in history-- Circa 100 AD
to 1900 AD record NO tongues speaking by even the most courageous saints
until circa 1920. At that time a crazy Black preacher stuck his head in a
butter box in Azusa, California (where else), and when he pulled his head
out he was blabbering in the devil's own language. Even then, there
was not one effort made to justify this doctrinally until Demos Shakarian
crawled out of his theological outhouse with a bucket of Pentecostal
"honey" and tried to add doctrine to it- Circa 1965 (Biltmore Hotel,
Hollywood, California Again!??).
I believe that God is not the author of confusion, so
confusion is a sign that a church is reprobate.
I believe the Lord's supper is to be a holy time which is
distinct from social events of the local church. I believe that the saints
are NOW able to live in victory over death in that they have the absolute
hope of resurrection in Christ.
I believe that if any man be in Christ he is a new
creature, and I am an ambassador of this Good News to the saints and the
lost. In 7:11 I am told that I am not finished with the attack on heresy
until I have taken revenge on it. I am to pull down strongholds and cast
down imaginations in this ministry of revenge. I believe that there are
many angels of light and ministers of light who are fully in the service
of Satan. I believe the godly saints are to be of one mind in all things.
Democracy, and voting, wreck havoc in the Lord's Church. One mind,
however; is not gained by throwing away our Bible based convictions. One
mind is NOT based on a local church pastor "ruling" the saints. Nor is one
mind based on some legalizer's rules and regulations system (by-laws) or
on Robert's Rules of foul Odor.
I believe that it is good to be zealously affected always
in a good thing. A good place to start is to be crucified with Christ and
to live unto Him. I believe that the law is our school master, and those
who burden the saints with Old Testament law are blithering
hypocrites unless they, as Moses commanded, carry a feces paddle.
I believe that the saints are to use the whole armor of
God as instruments of spiritual warfare, not merely as pretty pictures to
put up on the flannelgraph boards of Sunday School classes. I believe that
drunkenness is applied by God ONLY to wine and booze. Those who are drunk
in the church (in the model of wine and booze), and claim it is the work
of the Holy Spirit, are in fact possessed of devils-- they are NOT born
again. Their damnation is certain and a blessing to look forward to. New
"manifestations" "wherein is excess" of sexual perversion, nudity, and
bestiality are now following these drunks. Words fail me as I try to
express my revulsion. I hate these enemies of Christ with perfect hatred,
as did David.
It is normal for saints to rejoice. Those who reject
singing, and joy in worship, are blaspheming against the Lord's Church.
This does NOT include boogie, CCM, glide piano Southern Rotspel, and
Baptist be-bop, which are mongrel vomit. All things in the Lord's Church
should be done without murmuring and complaining. If this is not possible,
get right, or get out, and go mind your own devilish business.
I believe that we the saints are as complete in Christ as
we will ever be. (2:10) There is NOT "something more," and anyone looking
for "something more," in the model of Catherine Milquetoast Marshall, Ruth
Paxson, or the devotional gurus, will get "something more"-- from Satan. I
believe the saints must mortify the deeds of the flesh and set their
affections on things above-- of Christ.
I believe that the rapture of the Lord's Church is
distinct from the Second Coming / Advent. The rapture is subtle and sudden
and in the air. The dead in Christ will also be resurrected for this
calling from above. I believe that God raptures the Church because they
are the Bride which is not appointed to wrath but to the marriage feast of
the Lamb. This will take place while Reconstructionists and Papists on
earth are having their profane religion stuffed down their throats by the
Beast. Those saints who, in sadomasochistic zeal, think they are
called to suffer under God's wrath-- They just don't know their God very
well do they? Poor things-- What a wonderful surprise they are about to
get as they go up with the rest of u,s in spite of the sorrow they have
wrecked on their fellow saints with their sloppy agape.
I believe that "signs and wonders," as seen in Christ and
the Apostles, are NOT for the Church age. The "signs and wonders" of today
are Satanic and are a prelude to the reign of Satan in the Tribulation
(2:7-9). I believe that Chapter Two shows that the saints will be taken
out of the earth before the Tribulation as the Holy Ghost leaves who is
"letting," or restraining, the evil today. Christ promised He would not
leave us without a Comforter, so we go when the Holy Ghost goes. Grab hold
of that promise and stop the panic party. I believe we may be permitted to
discern who the Antichrist is, but it will not be of any use in our
witness to sinners. So, all the obsession over "Who is the Antichrist,"
and the Mark of the Beast, is hot air and reminds me of the guli guli man
I believe that an elder (pastor or elder) is to be the
husband of one wife. That excludes men who are not yet married, men who
have been divorced, especially men who have been married - divorced -
remarried, and men with more than one wife. I believe that the end times
spoken of in this book are now upon us.
I believe that a preacher or teacher of the Word who does
not study with zeal is not fit to preach and should be rebuked. I believe
that I should flee youthful lusts and unlearned questions, like, "Are
there Yannis and Greys in the earth which were hatched by demons and the
daughters of man?" And, "What is the Mark of the Beast, and who is the
Antichrist?" I believe that rebuke and reproof are absolutely essential in
the work of the Lord, and they must be based on doctrine and
longsuffering. The sneaky call for patience and longsuffering BY the
heretic is out of order and should be openly mocked.
I believe that godly women will be discreet, obey their
husbands, dress modestly from the heart out, and keep theirs homes.
Worldly women, saved or unsaved, who mock this "life style" must by openly
identified and forbidden to enter the Lord's local churches. I believe
that my salvation is not by works of righteousness which I have done. I
cannot say enough hail Marys, win enough souls, give enough offering, or
preach enough good sermons to save my soul. My salvation was earned by
Jesus Christ on a Wednesday evening, outside of Jerusalem, 2000 years ago.
Debate about the law is a worthless discussion,
especially with legalistic Baptists, SDAs, Hebrew Rooters, and
Reconstructionists. It makes me tired, so I just avoid it. If they come
after me with their law, I attack them viciously and "raise the level of
I believe that ANY offense committed against me by a
saint, regardless of the world's opinion, must be forgiven by me if the
offender seeks reconciliation and forgiveness. An heretic who rejects
rebuke and who continues in error is NOT included.
I believe that I am not to forsake the assembling of
myself with the saints. I believe that it is impossible to please God
without faith in Jesus Christ. All religions and systems which do not
preach exclusive faith in Jesus Christ are alien and mongrel religions.
I believe that man dies once and then stands before God.
There is no purgatory, no near death and return, no trip to heaven and
back, and there is no reincarnation. I believe that any alleged Christian
who lives like a dog, rolls around and vomits on himself at the front of
the church, and refuses to repent of sin-- If he is not chastened of God--
That person is NOT born again.
I believe that works don't save a man, but any saint who
is genuine WILL work to please God and to show other saints he is born
again. A profession of faith alone is not any confidence to careful church
leaders. I believe that where envying and strife are, there is every evil
work. I believe that those who draw nigh to God, and who resist the devil,
find that Satan flees from them. I believe that the prayer of faith by
church leaders, in common settings, is used of God to heal in this part of
the Church Age. Sudden and sign healing in big auditoriums is demonic
and profane. It is counterfeit and gives false hope.
I believe that I am to abstain from fleshly lusts, and in
compassion, I am to not render evil for evil, but I must bless and be a
blessing. I am to be so much in the Word of God that I am always ready to
give an answer for the hope I have in Christ. I believe that the only
priesthood in the Church Age is the ordinary believer. Any priest, great
missionary statesman, moderator, chairman, metropolitan, Pope, potentate,
principality, or denominational leader is a counterfeit of New Testament
leadership and is to be mocked and ignored.
I believe that the Word of God came not by the will of
men, who want to make a publishing windfall on new versions, but holy men
of God spake as they were moved by the Holy Ghost. The manifestation of
the Word of God today, in English, is the King James Bible ONLY. I
give special attention to saints who share my zeal in this conclusion.
I believe that the physical earth and heavens, as we now
know them, will one day melt and be burned up. So, they are now here
for us to use up and enjoy in moderate responsibility. God will one day
create a new heavens and a new earth. I believe that when I encounter a
Balaam who is leading the saints astray and cursing the truth, I, as a
dumb ass, am to bluntly prevent the false teacher from adding further
I believe that any alleged saint who claims to have no
more sin is calling God a liar, and His Word is not in them-- they are not
born again. Virtually everything in the world not under the Father's
authority is wicked. I believe there is a time when I must "try the
spirits" to see if they are of the Holy Spirit. I believe that the verse,
"1 John 5:7 For there are three that bear
record in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost: and these
three are one" is most certainly canon Scripture, and anyone
disclaiming it as pure Words of God is damned to hell in a hand
I believe that if anyone comes to me with a doctrine not
found in the Apostle's doctrine, I.E. the Word of God, I may not befriend
him or allow him into my house.
I believe that any Diotrephes who brutalizes the saints
in the Lord's Church is to be publicly rebuked and forced to repent or
leave the church at once. I note that 99% of all Diotrophes in the Lord's
church are highly versed in Scripture, and have had times of victory in
their past days. This they use as a weapon to rule the saints' lives. I
will get E-Mail attacking me for this, and 99% of it will come from bawdy
women or wimpy little sleazy men who are run by Diotrophettes.
I believe that I am to be thoroughly contentious in
defending the faith and the Word of God, where the faith is found. I am
not to hold back any words or language which describes those who attack
the Word of God, unless the words are not edifying. I am to have
compassion on some rebels if they will respond to rebuke, but I am to make
a difference between them and others who refuse to repent.
I believe Jesus is the first and the last of everything.
He holds the keys to hell and death, and men ought to seek peace with Him.
I believe that we are in the Laodicean Church Age and that Christendom at
large has been spued from God's mouth. I expect to hear, "Come up hither"
at any minute, for this was said to John BEFORE he was shown the Great
Tribulation. I believe the Great Whore is still a whore-- only her words
have become sweeter and more seductive since Vatican II.
I believe that The Revelation of John is the last of the
revelation of God to man. Those who add or take away from the Word of God,
especially in modern bibles, are damned to hell unless they repent and
burn their profane bibles. That includes your favorite Bible teacher
I am looking for Jesus at any moment.
Here is the anthem of Reformed eschatology:

The beast and false prophet soon I'll

all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God.
Wherefore, as by one man sin entered into the world, and death
by sin; and so death passed upon all men, for that all have sinned.
God commendeth His love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners,
Christ died for us. (Romans 5:8)
the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through
Jesus Christ our Lord. (Romans 6:23)
then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God. (Romans
That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and
shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead,
thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto
righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.
whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved. (Romans
There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in
Christ Jesus. (Romans 8:1
by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves; it is
the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast. (Ephesians
Repent ye therefore, and be converted, that your sins may be
blotted out, when the times of refreshing shall come from the presence
of the Lord; (Acts 3:19)
WHAT DOES THIS
It means you
CANNOT earn your salvation by any means. YOUR salvation was purchased
ONLY by the blood of Jesus Christ on the cross at Calvary. YOU
can do nothing to improve on it in any way. You dare not bring any
creed, alternate god, or guru to commend you to God. The only thing you
can do is accept the salvation offered in Jesus Christ as a FREE GIFT
which is offered to you by God through your prayer as you ask Jesus to
be your Savior. He will then come into your life, and to forgive you of
No amount of
rewriting the Bible by anyone or any organization will ever change that
fact. No guru, Pope, Stake President, world famous evangelist, deacon,
or preacher can add to, or take away from, YOUR personal responsibility
to come to Jesus Christ for salvation. Do not allow some counterfeit
religion or cult to rob you of eternal life.
The Bible, only
once, says specifically that Jesus rejoiced. Here is why:
Luke 10:21 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.
The scholars of
this world accomplish wonderful things and speak of amazing facts, but
they are unable to bring one soul into heaven. They are helpless to
register one name in the Lamb's Book of Life. This is because God makes
sure that the scholars, and the wise men of this world, are dumb as snot
with regard to salvation and eternal life. Are your listening to
The most retarded
and slow thinking person, if he can understand the Gospel of Jesus
Christ and believe it, is the only one who brings joy to God's heart,
and Jesus puts his name in the Book. This is why so few scholars are
ever born again. This is also why we don't worry too much, at this site,
if we offend the scholars and gurus of this world-- what would they

Once you are
truly born again, the Holy Spirit witnesses with your spirit that you
are born again. Now you feel when you are discouraged etc has no effect
on what God thinks about it. You are saved. Never let anyone take away
your confidence in Christ once you have it. My problem is with people
who were raised in church and never repented and believed in Jesus as an
act of the will. They just drifted into the Lord's Church fellowship as
a child and friend of other Christians. They need to make a clear
decision for themselves that they know happened.
Hebrews 10:35 Cast not away therefore your
confidence, which hath great recompence of reward.
36 For ye have
need of patience, that, after ye have done the will of God, ye might
receive the promise. Colossians 2:18 Let no man beguile you of your reward in a
voluntary humility and worshipping of angels, intruding into those
things which he hath not seen, vainly puffed up by his fleshly
As I said, once
you have confidence you are born again, LIVE in that confidence and do
not let any man tell you that you can lose your salvation.

8 He that committeth sin is of the devil; for the devil
sinneth from the beginning. For this purpose the Son of God was
manifested, that he might destroy the works of the devil.

him: and he cannot sin, because he is born of God.

The above text is
often used to tempt people to think they lost their salvation, but look
at John just two chapters earlier:

and the truth is not in us.

and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all

gave them me, is greater than all; and no man is able to pluck them out

argument is often made that no OTHER man can take us away from Jesus,
but that WE can take ourselves away from him. That is nowhere taught in
the Bible. There are no conditions in the above text which hint at the
possibility that I can escape from Jesus, once I am truly born again. If
I sin and keep sinning, I may very well receive
Saul walked away from God until God refused to talk to him through the
prophet. Saul finally went to a witch, and Samuel appeared to him, and
Samuel said Saul would die in battle. The interesting thing is that
Samuel told Saul that he would be with him (Samuel) by the end of the
day. Samuel was in the bosom of Abraham, as were all Old Testament Jews
until Jesus took them "captive" to be with the Father. So, Saul was
chastened, but he did not go to hell.

Verse 7 !!!!!!!!!
"just Lot" That is a hard one to swallow when we recall how he behaved
on that night long ago and how he chose that filthy city on purpose. The
problem is, we pompous Christians measure men by our little short
sighted standard, but God sees the heart. God saved Lot because the man
had a heart that hated the sin God hated. Read about Jehu. He didn't
finish the job of cleansing the land, and later was less than perfect,
but God said Jehu had "a heart like my heart." What a mouthful under the
circumstances. God knows your heart and your faith, and how YOU may act
or feel about it, from time to time, changes nothing.
Jude 1:3 Beloved, when I gave all diligence
to write unto you of the common salvation, it was needful for me to
write unto you, and exhort you that ye should earnestly contend for the
faith which was once delivered unto the saints.
Don't let anyone
rob you of the joy of your salvation.
Beware of those who try to retread born again people. That is,
they try to make saved people unsaved so that they can coax them into
walking the aisle again. These crooked bums are just too lazy to find
real sinners and spend the time and effort it takes to get them saved. I
have to wonder if some of these evangelists are even saved if they
really believe preaching the Gospel means getting saved people unsaved
to their advantage and glory. Ugh
expecting a creed?
Creeds are crutches for spiritual cripples who reject the absolute
authority of the Word of God. They exclaim, "Sola Scriptura," but
in reality live by "Sola Vomitum Canus."
If I had a creed, I would send it around to a museum to put on
in a dusty room full of Egyptian relics.
Creeds are cherished by men who settle for Calvinism instead of
