As a servant sent to you in the name of the resurrected Lord Jesus Christ, to the glory of God the Father, I write this discourse
Part 2 The Wilderness
I start this writing on the most solemn of words, as it is written, “But while men slept his enemy came and sowed tares among the wheat, and went his way.” Matt 13:25 When I read those words I was shaken to my core. I knew who the enemy was, satan, but what were the tares? I remembered, as it is written, “My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because thou hast rejected knowledge, I will also reject thee, that thou shalt be no priest to me: seeing thou hast forgotten the law of my God, I will also forget thy children.” Hosea 4:6 I didn’t want to experience any of these dreadful consequences from a lack of knowledge, so I diligently sought the answer for what were the tares? Through enlightenment, I now know that tares are people. I made reference to my spiritual home is of the Southern Baptist Denomination, and that it has a fact surrounding it, that once made known to myself, caused me to shudder. Also if one recalls all the discourses I’ve written is of the rebellion by the cult known as the masons, against the one true God. To shine the Lords wonderous light further upon this darkness, it is further revealed to you the deceitfulness being perpetrated, by what are known as tares. This Denomination (and I’m sure all denominations has some remnants) has the highest membership amongst this cult than any other denomination. In light of what has been stated about the tares (people) being sown, why and how is this important to you? If they are a member and are in your place of worship, you have to honestly ponder the question, what capacity are they in, what if their your Pastor, Deacon or Elder, how is this affecting you, and how would you know if they are operating secretly? As it is written, “For there is no man that doeth any thing in secret, and he himself seeketh to be known openly, if thou do these things, shew thyself to the world.” John 7:4 I’ve taken the liberty to check the meaning of the word “secret” used in the above verse, its meaning is; concealed, private, hid, inward-ly, secret. What I know, is if, you’re walking in the light, there is no need for secrecy. I had a hunch, and also researched the word cult, and its meaning; sacred, hidden, concealed, includes practices and ideas such as astrology, fortune-telling, magic, witchcraft, satanism, the supernatural, and secret wisdom groups and philosophies., also I noticed another word that’s quite pertinent: trespass- an unlawful intrusion on the person, property or rights of another. These are the behaviors being displayed by the masons, so what does that tell you ? Perhaps these verses, will bring everything to light. As it is written, “And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil. For every one that doeth evil hateth the light, neither cometh to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved. But he that doeth truth cometh to the light, that his deeds may be made manifest, that they are wrought in God.” John 3:19-21 If what I’m saying gives you cause for pause, I must honestly say thank you. But how do you know I’m not saying something to further my own gain? The Lord says you should test all spirits, this will allow you to know if they are from the Lord or the devil. As it is written, “BELOVED, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world. Hereby know ye the Spirit of God: Every spirit that confesseth that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is of God. And every spirit that confesseth not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is not of God: and this is the that spirit of an’-ti-christ, whereof ye have heard that it should come; and even now is it in the world.” 1 John 4:1 So if you’re professing to be followers of the Lord Jesus Christ this you must do. It doesn’t matter where the word comes from, you must take it upon yourself to check what you’ve heard against the authoritative Word of God. That’s why His Word says, “while you slept”. Allow me to establish this now, however all I’ve written will also substantiate what, I believe and what I profess. I am sent to you as a servant of the resurrected Lord Jesus Christ, to the glory of God the Father, this is my credentials, and the glory of God is my only reward. Earlier, I made reference that if members of this cult is in a position of leadership, what are you being introduced to? Allow me to insert a couple of questions; 1. Are you getting the pure Word of God? 2. What version of the Bible are you being taught from? (it does matter), 3. Are you experiencing zeal for the Lord? Lets address each of these, for all are a important part of your salvation. 1. If you’re hearing the Word of God from someone involved in this cult, then you are receiving a watered down or twisted version of the truth with no power. My reasoning is as follows: one in rebellion can not give what he doesn’t have. Obviously the truth is not in him, for if it was he wouldn’t be in rebellion. So we know light (Holy Spirit) can’t dwell with darkness (sin), now if what I’m saying is untrue, then that means God is allowing something he forbids, and you know as well as I that isn’t going to happen. Obviously one in this cult, has become a broken vessel, and broken vessels can’t hold water, especially the Living Water. Again, can’t give something he doesn’t have. I also believe one in this position can not confer blessings upon another, because everything is done in the name of my Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, now if one is in rebellion then this is a non truthful statement for them, if the statement was true, then he wouldn’t be in rebellion, that’s the problem with deception, it just goes around and around, as it is written, “The Lord is known by the judgment which he executeth: the wicked is snared in the work of his own hands. Hig-ga’-ion.“ Selah. Ps. 9:16 Rebellion is separation from God, now if someone has prayed for you, keep this in mind as it pertains to your (salvation), Now we’ll look at the other questions and tie it all together. 2. Are you aware of the different versions of the Bible? If you’re being taught from anyone other than the Authorized Version of the King James, you’re again getting the watered down, twisted Scripture with no power. I’m sure there will be many who throw their hand up and say, how can I arrive at that conclusion, lets look: I’ll focus on the niv, for reasons unbeknownst to myself, seems popular, with the reasoning being easier to read, as compared to what? I’m assuming their making reference to the again the only Authorized King James, apparently they are saying “Thou Shalt, and Thou Shalt Not” is causing the confusion. Allow me to clear up the confusion: “Thou Shalt means that you do it, Thou Shalt Not means you don’t. confusion cleared.”, its really not difficult, if you’re not receiving the truth of God’s Word, how will you know if you’re being deceived? We’ll look at a couple of Scripture, to many to present at this writing, and word restraint won’t permit an exhaustive list, so I trust the dear reader to further research this. We will always start with truth (power) which is in the King James Authorized Version (KJV) of the Holy Bible. As it is written, “For there are three that bear record in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost: and these three are one.” I John 5:7 This is a powerful verse for it speaks of the divine Trinity. Okay now we’ll look at the watered down, twisted, no power in the niv, “For there are three that testify:” 1 John 5:17 I’ll shall not take to much time attempting to decipher this, suffice it to say, who are the three, and what are they testifying to? Lets check another in the KJV, as it is written, “And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil: For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever. A-men.” Matt 6:13 Again powerful, powerful, once again now the watered down, twisted no power, niv, as it is written, “And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from the evil one.” It’s blaring obvious to me, that an attempt is made to make less of God and more of satan. Now that you’ve been made aware of the deception going on, I again trust the dear reader will further research this matter. As it is written, Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.” 2 Tim 2:15.
Glory be to God
In His service
Now we’ll proceed on to speak of my spiritual home.
