Life After Death?

The namesake of the oldest book in the Bible, Job, asked the question, “If a man die, shall he live again?” (Job 14:14) The question of life after death has occupied the thoughts of man for all of his history. Just the fact that you are now reading this text bears witness to the fact that this most universal of all questions has occupied your thoughts as well.

Dear friend, allow me to share with you what God’s Word has to teach us about this subject. The Bible (both Old and New Testaments) gives us abundant evidence that man was created by God to live eternally. The sense of eternity is universal; a general belief in man’s mortal present but immortal future can be found in all cultures throughout the world. The question is, then, ‘What happens when I die?’

Most people today believe that if, generally speaking, they are a good person then they will go to Heaven. In other words, if their good deeds outweigh their bad deeds, or, as long as they sincerely try to live a good life, then God will accept them.

There is actually some truth to this. If a person dies and truly is a good and righteous person, then he is assured of an eternity in Heaven. There’s just one problem, though: the Bible makes it quite clear that there are no inherently good people. Romans 3:10 states, “There is none righteous, no not one.”

I know, I know. It sounds very brash and harsh to claim that there are no good people to be found anywhere. After all, one may wonder, ‘What about people like Mother Theresa, Gandhi, or Billy Graham? Weren’t (or in the latter case, aren’t) they good people? Well, by human standards I would be the first to answer that question with a resounding Yes. Though I would disagree with some of them on some theological issues, I would say that all of them were, or are, humble people who consistently placed others above themselves. History will look kindly on all of these individuals as being selfless people with high moral standards and personal integrity.

The problem, though, lies in the fact that God does not judge us by man’s standards, He judges us by His. What exactly are those standards? They are, very simply, the 10 Commandments. If a man could live by all of the 10 Commandments perfectly throughout his life, then he would indeed be a good person by God’s standards and be assured of eternity in Heaven. I invite you to look with me at the 10 Commandments and as we progress, evaluate yourself to see if you measure up to God’s standards.

The Ten Commandments

1. Thou shalt have no other gods before Me

This commandment is not only an injunction not to worship other deities before the true God, Yahweh. It also means that nothing in our lives should ever take priority over God and His will. Has there ever been a time in your life in which something or someone was, even for a moment, more important to you than God? Has God always been your top priority and greatest love?

2. Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven images

If you are reading this, you probably do not have a statue of Buddha or of some other pagan god sitting somewhere in your home that you worship. In the clear, right? Well, not so fast. If you believe things about God that are not supported by Scripture (for example, that God will accept you as long as you ‘try to be a good person’) then you are not worshipping the true God. You have made a god out of your own image. This is called idolatry and is a serious sin.

3. Thou shalt not take the name of the Lord thy God in vain

God takes His good name very seriously. Have you ever misused God’s name in a vulgar or even flippant way? This is called blasphemy.

4. Remember the Sabbath day and keep it holy

Though we should love and serve God every day, He has set aside one day a week for special worship of and service to Him. Has there ever been a Sabbath day in which you slept in or maybe went fishing or to a ballgame instead of going to church?

5. Honor thy father and thy mother

Have you ever disobeyed or dishonored your parents? Have you ever lied to them (and thereby broke two commandments at once)?

6. Thou shalt not murder

Most of us have not actually killed another person. Off the hook, right? Well, the Bible teaches that “Whoever hateth his brother is a murderer” (1 John 3:15). Have you ever hated another individual?

7. Thou shalt not commit adultery

Like many of the Ten Commandments, this one encapsulates more than one might expect just at face value. Jesus said, “whoever looketh upon a woman with lust has committed adultery with her in his heart.” Have you ever looked at a woman with lust? If you are a lady, have you ever done this toward a man?

8. Thou shalt not steal

Have you ever stolen anything regardless of its value?

9. Thou shalt not lie

Who among us has not lied?

10. Thou shalt not covet

This means that we should not desire any possession of another individual whether it be his home, vehicle, boat, wife, social status, prestige – anything.

So, how did you do? If you are anything like me, you probably did not do too well. If you are really honest with yourself, I think that you will find that at one time or another you have broken most, if not all, of God’s commandments. Even if we break only one, it is the same as breaking them all (James 2:10). By God’s standards, then, we are all liars, thieves, idolaters, basphemers, and adulterers. We have all at one time or another dishonored our parents, disregarded the Sabbath, coveted another’s possessions, and not put God first in our lives. So you see, by God’s standards, we are not as good as we might have imagined. The fact of the matter is, we are all sinners (Romans 3:23).

The Consequences of Sin

Almost all people to whom I have shared the Gospel will in fact admit they are sinners upon hearing and understanding the 10 Commandments, but many fail to recognize the gravity of their sin. Some believe that God will just overlook their sin. Others have this notion that God will grade on a curve and reward them because they are not as bad as a, say, Hitler or Stalin or Pol Pot. Friend, if this is your idea of God, let me say that I love you enough to tell you you are wrong – dead wrong. All sin, no matter how insignificant it may seem to us, is an affront to a holy God. The Bible teaches that “The wages of sin is death” (Romans 6:23). This death is a spiritual death and results in eternal separation from God. Please understand, dear one, that this eternal death is not just missing out on Heaven, it is eternal conscious suffering in a very real place the Bible calls Hell. Sin has eternal consequences because it is committed against an eternal God. Once a person enters Hell, there are no second chances, his fate is eternally and tragically sealed.

The Good News

The word “Gospel” means “good news.” The Good News of the Gospel is that God does not want you to go to Hell and loves you enough to have provided a Way of escape. His name is Jesus Christ, the only begotten Son of the living God. Jesus came to earth as fully God and fully man and was the only One to have ever lived a perfect, sinless life. Jesus then willingly laid down His life for us by dying on a Roman cross. He was crucified to pay the penalty of your sins and mine. He became the offering for our sins and therefore satisfied the demands of God’s justice.

But God demonstrates His own love toward us in that while we were yet sinners Christ died for us – Romans 5:8

Then, on the morning of the third day, something amazing happened. God raised Jesus from the dead. All four gospels bear witness to this miraculous event. Jesus was raised and showed Himself very much alive to the disciples and apostles and to more than five hundred at once (1 Corinthians 15:3-7). The bodily resurrection of Jesus Christ is the single most well-attested event in all of ancient history and testifies to the deity of Jesus. The resurrection sets Jesus apart from all other “religious leaders” who came before Him or since.

By being raise from the dead, Jesus has gained victory over sin, death and Hell. He is alive today and stands ready to forgive anyone of his sins who will confess with his mouth Jesus as Lord and believe in his heart that God has raised Him from the dead (Romans 10:9). Jesus and Jesus alone can forgive one of his sins and secure for him escape from Hell and an eternity in Heaven. That is the Good News.

Your Response

According to the Word of God, dear friend, what you decide about Jesus will determine where you spend eternity. No one can earn his salvation by good works (Ephesians 2:8-9). If we could somehow earn God’s favor, then the cross is empty and meaningless. We are forgiven of our sins when we first realize that we are sinners and in need of saving. Then, for the one who believes the Good News and is willing to repent of his sins and trust Jesus as Savior and Lord, salvation is freely given.

Are you ready to forsake your sins and surrender completely to the Lordship of Jesus Christ? Please do not come to Jesus seeking happiness, peace, or some purpose-filled life. Come to Jesus seeking forgiveness of your sins. Come to Him because He alone can deliver you from the judgment that must come to anyone who dies without Him.

Friend, if you come to Christ, please do not expect that your life will all of the sudden be wonderful and without problems. Jesus did not promise anyone this. To the contrary, Jesus promised those who follow Him that they would face trials, persecutions, and be hated by some – maybe even by one’s own family. No, Jesus does not promise an easy life, financial prosperity, or physical healing (contrary to what some preachers would have you believe). He does promise you, though, the greatest gift of all: forgiveness of sins and eternal life. When the inevitable trials of life do come, He will grant His sufficient grace and strength made perfect in weakness (2 Corinthians 12:9). He will grant His peace that surpasses all human understanding (Philippians 4:6-7). This peace and strength comes from knowing that we are forgiven of our sins and that our eternity is secure.

If you have read all of this and are being convicted by the Holy Spirit of God that you need to surrender to Jesus Christ and trust Him as Savior and Lord, I would invite you to do that now. Go to Jesus and ask Him to forgive you and save you. He stands ready to receive you unto Himself and wash your scarlet sins white as snow. If you have made this decision, please write and share with me your new life in Christ. It will be my joy to send you some material to help you in your new walk with Him and to pray for you as my new brother or sister in Christ.

I would encourage you to begin reading your Bible and praying daily. Seek and join a Bible-believing and teaching church. As you grow in your relationship with Jesus, share the Good News with others. May God richly bless and use you for His glory. (Share from : Justin Peters Ministries)

Between Friends and Sabbath

meet the friend

On a sunday 23 September 2012, I promised for help my friend to take some chicken by his farm. He is the farmer, he want some his breed go away because to much and to expensive for feeding them. But he e-mail me if I only could come to his farm at 12.00-13.00, because he very busy and must go some place. Unfortunately, at the same time I must go to the church. Then I got a better Idea, to can do all both with the same day. First I went to the church, then at 12:00 I went to the farm which location near the church. Of course I missed the sermon, I already thought I would missed that, but I am no worry because I will asking the word of faith to my wife and I could read it at home. I already explain my reason to the preacher. He just smile and in my mind he’ll understood the situation. Week later, I went to the church. I enjoy the worship and anointed. But the sermon very unexpected. All story quip me.  I just realised it. And feel no good because he did over and over again every sermon.

The Sermon

This is my note I wrote when at the church. The preacher said, “Every human being has oxygen, prayer is oxygen for God. The importance of prayer,  the name of God honoring and praying. Sometimes our temple (our heart and soul) must be clean, because we give very little time for God. With God nothing is impossible, see at Matthew 21:12-17 :

12 And Jesus went into the temple of God, and cast out all them that sold and bought in the temple, and overthrew the tables of the moneychangers, and the seats of them that sold doves,

13 And said unto them, It is written, My house shall be called the house of prayer; but ye have made it a den of thieves.

14 And the blind and the lame came to him in the temple; and he healed them.

15 And when the chief priests and scribes saw the wonderful things that he did, and the children crying in the temple, and saying, Hosanna to the Son of David; they were sore displeased,

16 And said unto him, Hearest thou what these say? And Jesus saith unto them, Yea; have ye never read, Out of the mouth of babes and sucklings thou hast perfected praise?

17 And he left them, and went out of the city into Bethany; and he lodged there.

Honor the day of the Lord.  Take the Sabbath day in honor, dont desecrate that day. If we put God in the first place, we will always come first. Maybe we pray wrong, prayer is not asking for self-interest, but questions what the Lord wants. Ask and it shall be given into you (ask to God what he wants). Everything you do without that it is God’s will, is loss of time. Let God figure it for you, Isaiah 56: 6-8

6 Also the sons of the stranger, that join themselves to the LORD, to serve him, and to love the name of the LORD, to be his servants, every one that keepeth the sabbath from polluting it, and taketh hold of my covenant,

7 Even them will I bring to my holy mountain, and make them joyful in my house of prayer: their burnt offerings and their sacrifices shall be accepted upon mine altar; for mine house shall be called an house of prayer for all people.

8 The Lord GOD which gathereth the outcasts of Israel saith, Yet will I gather others to him, beside those that are gathered unto him.

Please God and he will help you. God’s will is our priority. We are redeemed by the blood of Jesus. Prayer is your wisdom, prayer has God’s will search, how search you God’s will, by time. The Holy Spirit will give you thoughts. God has said, who are looking for you will find me God’s will recognize, Receive the will of God, Isaiah 56:1-4

1Thus saith the LORD, Keep ye judgment, and do justice: for my salvation is near to come, and my righteousness to be revealed.

2Blessed is the man that doeth this, and the son of man that layeth hold on it; that keepeth the sabbath from polluting it, and keepeth his hand from doing any evil.

3Neither let the son of the stranger, that hath joined himself to the LORD, speak, saying, The LORD hath utterly separated me from his people: neither let the eunuch say, Behold, I am a dry tree.

4For thus saith the LORD unto the eunuchs that keep my sabbaths, and choose the things that please me, and take hold of my covenant;

God’s will. A son of 10 year anniversary. Father wants a bike for his son. father influenced his son for a bicycle, conclusion son wants a bicycle. that is the way that God will deliver for us 2 Timothy 2:3-4

3 Thou therefore endure hardness, as a good soldier of Jesus Christ.

4 No man that warreth entangleth himself with the affairs of this life; that he may please him who hath chosen him to be a soldier.

Faith Is certainty in what still is not seen, pray makes it visible. Religious prayer is no faith. Philippians 2:13-17

13 For it is God which worketh in you both to will and to do of his good pleasure.

14Do all things without murmurings and disputings:

15That ye may be blameless and harmless, the sons of God, without rebuke, in the midst of a crooked and perverse nation, among whom ye shine as lights in the world;

16 Holding forth the word of life; that I may rejoice in the day of Christ, that I have not run in vain, neither laboured in vain.

17 Yea, and if I be offered upon the sacrifice and service of your faith, I joy, and rejoice with you all.

We must pray in secret, Matthew 6:6

6 But thou, when thou prayest, enter into thy closet, and when thou hast shut thy door, pray to thy Father which is in secret; and thy Father which seeth in secret shall reward thee openly.

God is my good Shepherd, me is missing nothing. God is doing his will, only if you pray, pray for family, friends, neighbors, etc, Roman 12:2

2 And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.

Pray in God’s name, Ephesians 1:5-6 :

5 Having predestinated us unto the adoption of children by Jesus Christ to himself, according to the good pleasure of his will,

6 To the praise of the glory of his grace, wherein he hath made us accepted in the beloved.

From The Darkness, Drawn In The Light

Last week I learn how  God has pulled us out of the darkness and placed it in to the light of His kingdom. The sun is a symbol of the power of God. In darkness, we see nothing, we should do everything by touch. We’re afraid of the invisible.  Darkness is like a sheep without a shepherd, but with God power, all can change everything. In 35 years Jesus must live as man, to save us. read from Colossians 1:13-14

13 Who hath delivered us from the power of darkness, and hath translated us into the kingdom of his dear Son:

14 In whom we have redemption through his blood, even the forgiveness of sins.                    

If we have problems then look to God, turn our eyes to heaven and pray for recovery or for the problem that occurs at the moment. Don’t look to the earth because there you will not find the solution. If you need anything or looking for a solution, ask to Jesus Christ. We need God, you will certainly find a solution, Colossians 3:1-2 :

1 If ye then be risen with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ sitteth on the right hand of God.

2 Set your affection on things above, not on things on the earth.

God says wake up, fix your eyes on me. Find the things pertaining to God, because he can give you those things, Hebrews 12 : 1-2 :

1 Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us,

2 Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God.

What can we give to God: He already has everything, the only thing left is our heart, Colossians 3:3-4

3 For ye are dead, and your life is hid with Christ in God.

4 When Christ, who is our life, shall appear, then shall ye also appear with him in glory.

Anyone who is still in darkness there must be saved to the inheritance of God to receive, Colossians  1:12

12Giving thanks unto the Father, which hath made us meet to be partakers of the inheritance of the saints in light:

Hell is real, because God has taken us from the darkness (hell) drawn in the light (heaven) come alive. Colossians 1:8-13 :

8 Who also declared unto us your love in the Spirit.

9 For this cause we also, since the day we heard it, do not cease to pray for you, and to desire that ye might be filled with the knowledge of his will in all wisdom and spiritual understanding;

10 That ye might walk worthy of the Lord unto all pleasing, being fruitful in every good work, and increasing in the knowledge of God;

11 Strengthened with all might, according to his glorious power, unto all patience and longsuffering with joyfulness;

12 Giving thanks unto the Father, which hath made us meet to be partakers of the inheritance of the saints in light:

13 Who hath delivered us from the power of darkness, and hath translated us into the kingdom of his dear Son.

Halleluya.. amin!

God Love Us, But He Doesn’t Need Us

I just wacthed video from Justin Peters Ministries – “A Call for Discernment” is a Biblical Critique of the Word of Faith Movement (more commonly known as the Health and Wealth or Prosperity Gospel).

Here is the link : http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=endscreen&v=9IGHf5Z01Wg&list=UUC8e–Wgclrc0FttGOxEF1g&NR=1

You also can watch and learn about Jesus our Saviour. So many lessons I got from him. Open my mind and make strengthen my faith. Thank you Lord Jesus.

34:55 God love us, but make not mistake about it; God don’t need us. He is the Alfa and Omega. God love us, but He doesn’t need us. We need him! In any man preaching gospel says God need us is preaching a different Gospel.

45:35 If you are save, if you are born again, you are child in God. If you have been given enough faith to be save, don’t let anybody tell you that you don’t have faith to be heal, because being save is by far the greatest miracle. (II Peter 2:1-2a) 

Godbless Us everyone!

Kenneth Hagin False Prophet/Teacher

Kenneth Hagin was a Word of Faith preacher. He claimed to be a prophet called by God Himself. Kenneth believed in the following beliefs: Christians are little gods. Jesus didn’t pay for our sins on the cross and he had to finish the job of atonement in hell. If Christians are not healthy and wealthy it is because of their lack of faith or knowledge. Christians have control over their lives by the words that they speak. If they speak sickness and poverty they will be sick and broke. Therefore, if a Christian speaks blessings and healing they will be healthy and have wealth. It is a lot easier to justify my belief that Kenneth Hagin was a false prophet by letting his own words speak for themselves. Let’s see what Kenneth had to say.

“Some of these Christians tried to tell me, ‘Well, now maybe God didn’t do it. But now He permitted it and He’s got some purpose in all of that.’ I said, ‘If you’re that kind of God–Me a little innocent baby–If you’re that kind of God I’d rather go to Hell than to be with you! And I meant every word of it! And I still mean it!” (Ken Hagin, “You Can Have What You Say,” Tape from his ministry) Here we find Kenneth speaking about being born with a deformed heart and being sick when he was young. He is saying that if God would allow a Christian to be sick then he would rather go to Hell than to be a God of that kind.

“He [Jesus] tasted spiritual death for every man. And His spirit and inner men went to hell in my place. Can’t you see that? Physical death wouldn’t remove your sins. He’s tasted death for every man. He’s talking about tasting spiritual death.” (Ken Hagin, “How Jesus Obtained His Name.”)

“The trouble with us is that we’ve preached a ‘cross’ religion, and we need to preach a ‘throne’ religion. By that I mean that people have thought they were supposed to remain at the cross. Some have received the baptism in the Holy Spirit, have backed up to the cross, and have stayed there ever since…The cross is actually a place of defeat, whereas the Resurrection is a place of triumph. When you preach the cross, you’re preaching death, and you leave people in death.” (Ken Hagin, “The Believer’s Authority,” page 16. Second Edition 1986)

“Originally, God made the earth and the fullness thereof, giving Adam dominion over all the works of His hands. In other words, Adam was the god of this world. Adam committed high treason and sold out to Satan, and Satan, through Adam, became the god of this world…Now Satan has a right to be here and be god of this world until ‘Adam’s lease’ runs out.” (Ken Hagin, “The Believer’s Authority,” page 19. Second Edition 1986).

“The Lord said to me, ‘If I give you a message for an individual, a church, or a pastor and they don’t accept it, you will not be responsible. They will be responsible. There will be ministers who don’t accept it and will fall dead in the pulpit.” (Ken Hagin, “I Believe,” page 114-115).

“I say this with reluctance but this actually happened in one place where I preached. Two weeks from the day that I closed the meeting, the pastor fell dead in the pulpit. When I left that church crying. I told the pastor in the next church where I went to hold a meeting, ‘that man fell dead in the pulpit.’ And just a very short time after that he did. Why? Because he didn’t accept the message that God gave me to give him from the Holy Spirit.” (Ken Hagin, “I Believe,” page 115).

“Sometimes in my meetings the glory cloud will come as I am about to minister to people in a healing line. The first time that happened I was holding a meeting for Brother Gordon Lindsay in the 1960’s. I had laid hands on about half of the people in the healing line. Then I saw the glory cloud rolling into the building. I walked back to the pulpit because I knew in that instance if I stood in that cloud, I would fall under the power of the Holy Spirit along with the rest of the people. The cloud came floating over the heads of the congregation. Meanwhile, the people in the healing line all had their eyes closed and were worshipping God. They weren’t watching me. I waited until the cloud was right above the people in the healing line, and then I waved my hand. When I did that, every person in the healing line fell down like dominoes under the power of the Spirit.” (Ken Hagin, “The Glory of God,” Article C-Faith)

“The believer is as much an incarnation as was Jesus of Nazareth.”
(Kenneth E. Hagin, “The Incarnation,” The Word of Faith page 13, December 12, 1980. Kenneth Hagin has some really unbelievable beliefs doesn’t he. Yet, he has been followed by dozens of men who continue on. Men who have followed in Kenneth Hagin’s footsteps are Kenneth Hagin Jr., Kenneth Copeland, Benny Hinn, Rodney Howard-Browne, Creflo Dollar and many more.

We pray that this article has been of help to you, http://www.forgottenword.org/hagin.html.

Joyce Meyer and Her False Teachings

Joyce Meyer says God has made her rich. Everything she has came from Him: the $10 million corporate jet, her husband’s $107,000 silver-gray Mercedes sedan, her $2 million home and houses worth another $2 million for her four children – all blessings, she says, straight from the hand of God.

Noticed her background at her podium

It’s been an amazing run, nothing short of a miracle, says Meyer, a one-time bookkeeper who heads one of the world’s largest television ministries. Her Life in the Word organization expects to take in $95 million this year.

Just look around, she told reporters last month from behind her desk on the third floor of the ministry’s corporate offices in Jefferson County.

“Here I am, an ex-housewife from Fenton, with a 12th-grade education,” she said. “How could anybody look at this and see anything other than God?” (http://mormonismscam.com/2012/02/18/joyce-meyer-ministry-scam-or-not-you-decide/)

he ministry’s headquarters is a three-story jewel of red brick and emerald-color glass that, from the outside, has the look and feel of a luxury resort hotel. Built two years ago for $20 million, the building and grounds are postcard perfect, from manicured flower beds and walkways to a five-story lighted cross.

The driveway to the office complex is lined on both sides with the flags of dozens of nations reached by the ministry. A large bronze sculpture of the Earth sits atop an open Bible near the parking lot. Just outside the main entrance, a sculpture of an American eagle landing on a tree branch stands near a man-made waterfall. A message in gold letters greets employees and visitors over the front entryway: “Look what the Lord Has Done.”

The building is decorated with religious paintings and sculptures, and quality furniture. Much of it, Meyer says, she selected herself.

A Jefferson County assessor’s list offers a glimpse into the value of many of the items: a $19,000 pair of Dresden vases, six French crystal vases bought for $18,500, an $8,000 Dresden porcelain depicting the Nativity, two $5,800 curio cabinets, a $5,700 porcelain of the Crucifixion, a pair of German porcelain vases bought for $5,200.

The decor includes a $30,000 malachite round table, a $23,000 marble-topped antique commode, a $14,000 custom office bookcase, a $7,000 Stations of the Cross in Dresden porcelain, a $6,300 eagle sculpture on a pedestal, another eagle made of silver bought for $5,000, and numerous paintings purchased for $1,000 to $4,000 each.

Inside Meyer’s private office suite sit a conference table and 18 chairs bought for $49,000. The woodwork in the offices of Meyer and her husband cost the ministry $44,000.

In all, assessor’s records of the ministry’s personal property show that nearly $5.7 million worth of furniture, artwork, glassware, and the latest equipment and machinery fill the 158,000-square-foot building.

As of this summer, the ministry also owned a fleet of vehicles with an estimated value of $440,000. The Jefferson County assessor has been trying to get the complex and its contents added to the tax rolls but has failed.

Stylish sports cars and a plane

Meyer drives the ministry’s 2002 Lexus SC sports car with a retractable top, valued at $53,000. Her son Dan, 25, drives the ministry’s 2001 Lexus sedan, with a value of $46,000. Meyer’s husband drives his Mercedes-Benz S55 AMG sedan. “My husband just likes cars,” Meyer said.

The Meyers keep the ministry’s Canadair CL-600 Challenger jet, which Joyce Meyer says is worth $10 million, at Spirit of St. Louis Airport in Chesterfield. The ministry employs two full-time pilots to fly the Meyers to conferences around the world.

Meyer calls the plane a “lifesaver” for her and her family. “It enabled us, at our age, to travel literally all over the world and preach the gospel” with better security than that offered on commercial flights, she said.

Security is important to Meyer, who says she has received death threats. She has a division of the ministry dedicated to her safety. Her officers wear pistols; they guard the headquarters’ front gate, keeping out anyone but employees and invited guests. The ministry bought a $145,000 house where the security chief lives rent-free to keep him close to the ministry’s headquarters.

The family compound

The ministry has also bought homes for other key employees.

Since 1999, the ministry has spent at least $4 million on five homes for Meyer and her four children near Interstate 270 and Gravois Road, St. Louis County records show.

Meyer’s house, the largest of the five, is a 10,000-square-foot Cape Cod style estate home with a guest house and a garage that can be independently heated and cooled and can hold up to eight cars. The three-acre property has a large fountain, a gazebo, a private putting green, a pool and a poolhouse where the ministry recently added a $10,000 bathroom.

The ministry pays for utilities, maintenance and landscaping costs at all five homes. It also pays for renovations. The Meyers ordered major rehab work at the ministry’s expense right after the ministry bought three of the homes. For example, the ministry bought one home, leveled it and then built a new home on the site to the specifications of Meyer’s daughter Sandra and her husband, county records show.

Even the property taxes, $15, 629 this year, are paid by the ministry.

Meyer called the homes a “good investment” for the ministry and said the ministry bears the cost of upkeep and maintenance because the family is too busy to take care of such tasks. “It’s just too hard to keep up with something like that when you travel as much as we do,” Meyer said.

She said that federal tax law allows ministries to buy parsonages for their employees, so the arrangement does not violate any prohibitions against personal benefit. Meyer also said the decision to cluster the families together was a way to build a buffer to better ensure privacy and security.

“We put good people all around us,” she said. “Obviously, if I was trying to hide anything or thought I was doing anything wrong, I wouldn’t live on the corner of Gravois and 270.”

The irrevocable trust

Meyer says she expects the best, from where she lives to how she looks. Much of her clothing is custom-tailored at an upscale West County dress shop. At her conferences, she usually wears flashy jewelry. She sports an impressive diamond ring that she said she got from one of her followers. Meyer has a private hairdresser. And, a few years ago, Meyer told her employees she was getting a face-lift.

Not everything is paid directly by the ministry.

Last year, the Meyers bought a $500,000 atrium ranch lakefront home in Porto Cima, a private-quarters club at Lake of the Ozarks. A few weeks later, they bought two watercrafts similar to Jet Skis and a $105,000 Crownline boat painted red, white and blue that they named the Patriot.

In 2000, the Meyers also bought her parents a $130,000 home just a few minutes from where the Meyers live.

The Meyers have put the Mercedes, the lake house, the boat and her parents’ home into an irrevocable trust, an arrangement that tax experts say would help protect them from any financial problems at the minisry.

Meyer says she should not have to defend how she spends the ministry’s money. “We teach and preach and believe biblically that God wants to bless people who serve Him,” Meyer said. “So there’s no need for us to apologize for being blessed.”

Meyer’s “trusted” board

For the most part, Meyer can spend the ministry’s money any way she sees fit because her board of directors is handpicked. It consists of Meyer, her husband and all four of her children — all paid workers — as well as six of Meyer’s closest friends. (Ministry officials said that daughter Laura Holtzmann has now resigned; state records still list her on the board.) “Our family is a huge help to us,” Meyer said. “We couldn’t do this if we didn’t have somebody we trusted.”

Board members Roxane and Paul Schermann are such close friends that for more than a decade they lived in the Meyers’ home. The ministry employed both of them as high-level managers and in 2001 bought them a $334,000 home. Roxane Schermann no longer works at the ministry; her husband continues as a paid division manager. The Schermanns bought the house at the same price from the ministry in January. Delanie Trusty, the ministry’s certified public accountant, also serves as the ministry board’s secretary.

The board decides how the ministry’s money is spent. The salaries of Meyer and her family are set by those board members who are not family members and are not employed by the ministry, Meyer’s lawyer said. The arrangement meets IRS regulations, the lawyer said.

“We certainly wouldn’t have enemies and people we don’t know” on the board, Meyer said. “That wouldn’t make any sense. Anybody who has a board is going to have people in favor of you.”

Meyer and her ministry refuse to tell how much the ministry pays Meyer, her husband, her children and her children’s spouses. “I don’t make any more than I’m worth,” Meyer said. “We’re definitely within IRS guidelines.”

Such an overlap between top administrators and board members concerns the IRS because “the opportunity to manipulate and control the organization is easier to accomplish,” said Bruce Philipson of St. Paul, Minn., the IRS group manager of tax-exempt organizations for this region. (Carolyn Tuft and Bill Smith St. Louis Post-Dispatch 11/15/2003)

“And they shall say to you, See here; or, see there: go not after them, nor follow them.” Luke 17:23

Articles taken for the most part from the St. Louis Post Dispatch Newspaper.

Joyce Meyer is one dynamic speaker/motivator. The problem with Mrs. Meyers is that her doctrine is not Biblical. She does teach some good things but she also teaches way to many things that are not Biblically correct. Like the rest of the Word Faith, Seed Faith, Name It And Claim it crowd, Mrs. Meyers lives an extravagant lifestyle. She has all her clothes tailor made for her and lives in a multi-million dollar home, her husband drives a $100,000 automobile, her and their children all drive expensive vehicles, paid for by the Ministry and she fly’s around the country in her Multi-million dollar jet plane when she isn’t taking time to vacation at her home in the Ozarks, paid for by the Ministry. I truly believe these millions of dollars could have been used more efficiently on other causes other than to give her and her family a rich lifestyle. I do not think they should live as dirt poor persons but I certainly do not recognize any sacrifice on their parts. There are millions of people who need the basics in life just to live let alone have any extra. With all this extravagance, she is not showing the true spirit of Jesus. – RW

Joyce Meyers Message On Being Born Again
Quotes, Teachings, Doctrines, Beliefs Concerning Salvation

Purpose
What are the beliefs, teachings & doctrines of Joyce Meyers concerning being “Born Again”? What does Joyce Meyer believe on what a person must believe to be saved? What does Joyce Meyer teach concerning Jesus on the cross and spiritual death, and salvation? Below will be various quotes from Joyce Meyer teachings from one of her booklets called “The Most Important Decision You Will Ever Make“, and the purpose for this information is not to be contentious or divisive, but rather to give an exposition of what Joyce Meyer teaches concerning being born again. Within the Christian Church there are many people who listen to Joyce Meyer whether on the radio, television, or by reading her books. However, many do not realize that her teachings are not in accordance with the Word of God. It is true that there are things she teaches which do line up Biblically, but the same is said of the Jehovah’s Witnesses or the Mormons.

What does Joyce Meyer teach that is so bad? Is Joyce Meyer a false teacher? Is Joyce Meyer a Christian? Why should anyone be concerned? Joyce Meyers does not have all the same false teachings as those in the Faith Movement, but she does have some teachings that are the same with various Faith teachers. Examine this information for yourself and line up the Biblical gospel to the gospel that Joyce Meyer teaches. For more information on the Faith Movement teachings go to our Faith Movement section.

In a book called “The Most Important Decision You Will Ever Make” Joyce Meyer teaches what it means to be born again and what Christ had to do for people to be saved. Read the following comments:
“Although your physical body will die someday, your spirit will continue to live for an eternity. Whether your spirit lives in heaven or hell depends on the choices you have made. In this book, best selling author Joyce Meyer outlines God’s plan of salvation so that you can make a quality decision.” (Back of the book, 1996-Edition)

“The spiritual part of you can be thought of as the part of you that cannot be seen with the natural eye. This part of you will live forever. And where the spiritual you lives depends on the decision you make as you read this book.” (Page 8, 1996-Edition)

Warning, Danger Ahead!
Joyce Meyer teaches that Jesus did not pay for sin upon the cross, but actually went to the torments of hell and made atonement there. The following quote is from Joyce Meyer’s 1991 booklet on being born again which is worded differently in the 1996-updated edition.
“During that time He entered hell, where you and I deserved to go (legally) because of our sin…He paid the price there.…no plan was too extreme…Jesus paid on the cross and in hell….God rose up from His throne and said to demon powers tormenting the sinless Son of God, “Let Him go.” Then the resurrection power of Almighty God went through hell and filled Jesus…He was resurrected from the dead 3Ú4 the first born-again man” (The Most Important Decision You Will Ever Make: A Complete And Thorough Understanding Of What It Means To Be Born Again, 1991, pages 35-36, Joyce Meyer) This quote was found from the Christian Research Institute’s article on Joyce Meyer which can be found by “Clicking Here”.
In her 1996 edition of “The Most Important Decision You Will Ever Make” Joyce Meyer states the same things but with different wording.
“Believe that Jesus did what the Bible says. Believe He is indeed the Son of God, born of a virgin. He took man’s sin on the cross. He did not stay dead. He was in the grave three days. During that time, He entered hell, where you and I deserved to go (legally) because of our sin.” (Page 41, 1996-Edition) Notice the similar wording in this quote compared to the other quote.

“Whatever it took to get God’s people back, free again, is what they would do. Jesus paid for our sins on the cross and went to hell in our place.” (Page 41, 1996-Edition) Whatever it took means that Jesus had to go to hell, suffer and be tormented by demons in our place.

“When Jesus hung on the cross, He took our sin upon Himself. God cannot stay in the presence of sin. As Jesus took our sin, He was separated from the presence of the Father…Jesus was taking your sins and those of everyone else upon Him as He felt this absence of His Father’s presence. He said, “My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?” [Matt. 27:46, author’s paraphrase] Jesus knew it would happen, but the horror of separation from the bright presence of the Father was worse than He could of imagined, and it caused Him to cry out…and His spirit went to hell because that is where we deserved to go.” (Page 42, 1996-Edition) This is a common teaching among the Faith Movement whereas they teach Jesus died spiritually and became literally the nature of sin. Thus, the Father turned away from Jesus while He was on the cross and Jesus died alone. Check out our article “Was Jesus Separated From The Father On The Cross?” for further information on Jesus being separated from the Father and becoming spiritually dead.

“There is no hope of anyone going to heaven unless they believe this truth. You cannot go to heaven unless you believe with all your heart that Jesus took your place. He became your substitute and took all the punishment you deserve. He bore all your sins. He paid the dept you owe…Jesus went to hell for you. He died for you. He paid for your sins.” (Page 43, 1996-Edition)
Concerning being born again and what is required to be saved we see Joyce Meyer teaching:
1. “Believe…what the Bible says.”
2. That when Jesus was on the cross He did not stay dead but went to hell.
3. That Jesus went to hell in our place because that is where we deserved to go.
4. That God would do whatever it took to free His people.
5. That there is no hope of anyone going to heaven unless they believe this truth, meaning what Jesus did to make atonement for sins.
6. That a person must believe in their heart that Jesus took their place on the cross, He died spiritually, (implied) was separated from the Father, tormented by demons in hell, (1991-Edition) Jesus is the first born again man. (1991-Edition)

What is the Gospel?
The Scriptures are clear on what the Gospel message is.
“1 Now I make known to you, brethren, the gospel which I preached to you, which also you received, in which also you stand, 2 by which also you are saved, if you hold fast the word which I preached to you, unless you believed in vain. 3 For I delivered to you as of first importance what I also received, that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, 4 and that He was buried, and that He was raised on the third day according to the Scriptures” (1 Corinthians 15:1-4 NASB) The apostle Paul taught that Jesus died and rose again for our sins according to the Scriptures. Paul taught the death that Jesus died was His physical death and His shed blood. Nowhere do we find anything from Paul or any other apostle/prophet for that matter state Jesus died spiritually for our sins according to the Scriptures.
What the apostles taught concerning what Jesus did to make atonement and reconciliation for our sins:
“19 For it was the Father’s good pleasure for all the fullness to dwell in Him, 20 and through Him to reconcile all things to Himself, having made peace through the blood of His cross; through Him, I say, whether things on earth or things in heaven. 21 And although you were formerly alienated and hostile in mind, engaged in evil deeds, 22 yet He has now reconciled you in His fleshly body through death, in order to present you before Him holy and blameless and beyond reproach” (Colossians 1:19-22, NASB)
“18 knowing that you were not redeemed with perishable things like silver or gold from your futile way of life inherited from your forefathers, 19 but with precious blood, as of a lamb unblemished and spotless, the blood of Christ.” (1 Peter 1:18-19, NASB)
What Jesus taught:

“27 And when He had taken a cup and given thanks, He gave it to them, saying, “Drink from it, all of you; 28 for this is My blood of the covenant, which is poured out for many for forgiveness of sins.” (Matthew 26:27, NASB)

“44 Now He said to them, “These are My words which I spoke to you while I was still with you, that all things which are written about Me in the Law of Moses and the Prophets and the Psalms must be fulfilled.” 45 Then He opened their minds to understand the Scriptures, 46 and He said to them, “Thus it is written, that the Christ would suffer and rise again from the dead the third day, 47 and that repentance for forgiveness of sins would be proclaimed in His name to all the nations, beginning from Jerusalem.” (Luke 24:44-47, NASB)

“Therefore when Jesus had received the sour wine, He said, ‘It is finished!’ And He bowed His head and gave up His spirit.” (John 19:30, NASB)
Jesus taught that His death and shed blood was sufficient for the atonement of our sins. When Jesus said “It is finished” He was teaching an absolute truth that the payment for sin was paid in full. The Greek of “It is finished” is “tetelestai” which was a common way of saying dept paid in full, it is done.
*
What Does Born Again Mean?
Simply put being born again means becoming a new creation in Christ. Jesus taught Nicodemus what born again meant in John 3:1-21 and the message was simple. A person either accepts or rejects that Jesus came to this world to save anyone of their sins. What does it mean to accept Jesus? Jesus came first to the Jews, then after His death and resurrection the message was for the apostles to go to all people. To accept Jesus means you acknowledge you are in need of being saved, (John 3:14-18) that you believe Jesus was the Messiah and God come in the flesh, (John 8:24) that Jesus had the same authority and equality as the Father, (John 5:18-23 & John 10:30) that Jesus was the only way to the Father and for salvation, (John 14:6) that Jesus taught the Father, the Holy Spirit and Himself were three distinct personages from one another. (John 14-16)

John the apostle teaches what born again means:
“4 For whatever is born of God overcomes the world; and this is the victory that has overcome the world–our faith. 5 Who is the one who overcomes the world, but he who believes that Jesus is the Son of God?”…”10 The one who believes in the Son of God has the testimony in himself; the one who does not believe God has made Him a liar, because he has not believed in the testimony that God has given concerning His Son. 11 And the testimony is this, that God has given us eternal life, and this life is in His Son. 12 He who has the Son has the life; he who does not have the Son of God does not have the life. 13 These things I have written to you who believe in the name of the Son of God, so that you may know that you have eternal life.”…”20 And we know that the Son of God has come, and has given us understanding so that we may know Him who is true; and we are in Him who is true, in His Son Jesus Christ. This is the true God and eternal life.” ( 1 John 5, NASB)
*
What Will You Do?
It is clear that Joyce Meyer teaches another gospel message concerning what born again means and what is required to believe in order to be saved. This information shows Biblically that Joyce Meyer is not teaching the Biblical Gospel message and those who listen to her should be concerned. We believe she is teaching false doctrines of the message of hope and eternal life, and anyone who is serious about wanting to know truth needs to be open to examining this further. This is not an attack on Joyce Meyer in any way, but rather as said before an exposition on what she teaches concerning being born again.

We are warned in the Scriptures to be careful of those who claim to be of God but are in fact wolves in sheep’s clothing. There are false prophets & apostles, and false Christ’s:
“Beware of the false prophets, who come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly are ravenous wolves.” (Matthew 7:15, NASB)

“For false Christ’s and false prophets will arise and will show great signs and wonders, so as to mislead, if possible, even the elect..” (Matthew 24:24, NASB)

“28 “Be on guard for yourselves and for all the flock, among which the Holy Spirit has made you overseers, to shepherd the church of God which He purchased with His own blood. 29 “I know that after my departure savage wolves will come in among you, not sparing the flock; 30 and from among your own selves men will arise, speaking perverse things, to draw away the disciples after them. 31 “Therefore be on the alert, remembering that night and day for a period of three years I did not cease to admonish each one with tears.” (Acts 20:28-31, NASB)

“13 For such men are false apostles, deceitful workers, disguising themselves as apostles of Christ. 14 No wonder, for even Satan disguises himself as an angel of light. 15 Therefore it is not surprising if his servants also disguise themselves as servants of righteousness, whose end will be according to their deeds.” (2 Corinthians 11:13-15, NASB)
We are instructed to examine all people and doctrines for truth, and reject false teachers and doctrines:
“10 The brethren immediately sent Paul and Silas away by night to Berea, and when they arrived, they went into the synagogue of the Jews. 11 Now these were more noble-minded than those in Thessalonica, for they received the word with great eagerness, examining the Scriptures daily to see whether these things were so.” (Acts 17:10-11, NASB)

“But examine everything carefully; hold fast to that which is good” (1 Thessalonians 5:21, NASB)

“Be diligent to present yourself approved to God as a workman who does not need to be ashamed, accurately handling the word of truth.” (2 Timothy 2:15, NASB)

“2 preach the word; be ready in season and out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort, with great patience and instruction. 3 For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but wanting to have their ears tickled, they will accumulate for themselves teachers in accordance to their own desires, 4 and will turn away their ears from the truth and will turn aside to myths.” (2 Timothy 4:2-4, NASB)

“10 Reject a factious man after a first and second warning, 11 knowing that such a man is perverted and is sinning, being self-condemned.” (Titus 3:10-11, NASB)
What will you do with this information? If any of you are wondering if we have attempted to contact Joyce Meyer’s, the answer is yes. We have attempted contacting Joyce Meyer’s through emails and by phone, yet no reply. Our conclusion is she does not want to discuss this and we urge you to share this vital information with those who listen to Joyce Meyer’s. If you have any questions concerning what we have shared we would encourage you to contact us.

Oprah Winfrey : Wolves In Sheep’s Clothing

Image

Simbol All seeing eye at the logo Oprah.com

A FORMAL KICK-OFF FOR THE “NEW AGE”?
In connection with that, take a close look at this new Oprah Winfrey religion which has recently emerged in bizarre and disturbing fashion. Has the Devil decided “mainstream” America is now ready for the introduction of “New Age-ism”? Allow me to quote a few excerpts from a Google video mini-documentary:

Image

The Power of “I Am” for say you have power same as God

Have you heard about the largest church in the world? The first service was March 3, 2008…with an attendance of over 300,000. The attendance is now over two million, and they conducted the first-ever “mass trance” on March 17, 2008.

What do they teach? — “What you are requires no belief. Heaven is not a location but refers to the “inner realm of consciousness”. The man on the cross is an archetypal image. He is every man and every woman.”

The leader’s website teaches these lessons: “I am part of God. I am very holy. My holiness is my salvation. My salvation comes from me. Let me remember that there is no sin. Do not make the pathetic error of ‘clinging to the old rugged cross’ The only message of the crucifixion is that you can overcome the cross.”

Have you heard of this church or its leader? Her name is Oprah Winfrey. She has now turned her millions of adoring fans over to New Age doctrine.

Oprah has just now kicked off a full-fledged cult. She has an occultic New Age guru who acts as a kind of ‘high priest’, there is a book, a church, a defined doctrine which is explicitly anti-Christian…the works. The whole thing is now up and running, with millions of instant followers.

I would ask this–Could she have achieved that kind following a few decades ago? I don’t think so. You can see there has been a steady march towards a ‘popularization’ of occultism and New Age doctrine and it has been a painstaking, methodical process:

Pop culture has been carefully directed and manipulated. TV show after TV show with occult themes. Movie after movie with New Age propaganda. The way has been paved for the Antichrist. There has been a deliberate and carefully planned ‘paving’ process.

There have been other New Age occult movements. There was “EST” in the 80’s, for example. But there is something unprecedented about a TV talkshow host being able to create a vast army of cultic devotees in a few short days.

So when the Bible predicts in Mark 13 (and other places) regarding “false prophets” in the last days…I believe we are going to see these people coming from unexpected places. Oprah Winfrey may very well turn out to be an example of this. Notice all the interesting earmarks:

  1. She is perceived as one of the ultimate ‘good and decent’ people on the planet. Who better to promote a hardcore anti-Christian message…than “angels of light” (so to speak)?
  2. She has inspired a rather strange worshipful-like following over the years…so conspicuous that it has been a source of amusement with the likes of Saturday Night Live and such. Had you noticed that? And so now in rather startling fashion…she has suddenly emerged, guns blazing, with an explicit anti-Christian denunciation of the Gospel message.

Read Mark 13 carefully: I believe you may be seeing Oprah and these many covert “Evangelical” occultists being exposed for what their ultimate agenda actually is.

Allow me at this early stage to give a partial answer as to what these covert occultists (and New Age prophets) may be about:

According to the Scriptures (the prophesy passages in Mark 13 and Matthew 24), I believe that at a certain critical phase these many false prophets will perpetrate a betrayal which results in huge numbers of spiritual and literal/physicalcaptives. I will try to provide more detail when we get to my chapter on Bible prophecy.

Thank you to Matt TwoFour give me permission to share this articel. Read more about Oprah at :

Michael W Smith: Wolves in Sheep’s Clothing

IS “CHRISTIAN MUSICIAN” MICHAEL W. SMITH…A COVERT OCCULTIST? (If not…then what is going on here??)

As to Michael W. Smith, I had followed the career of this Christian pop musician for years. For whatever reason, his music didn’t appeal to me that much but when my kids came along they liked watching his videotapes, as he was one of the few Christian artists to have professionally produced concert videos. It was something to keep my kids occupied when they were three and four years old.

Having watched him up close on these videos (behind-the-scenes footage and scenes of him at home with his All-American family) and having seen him perform (on TV) at a number of Billy Graham crusades, where he sang and talked briefly about his life…Smith had always come across as completely sincere, very gracious, rather mild-mannered and very charitable with his fans. He wrote and performed a song at the Columbine memorial service.

He had a least one song that rose to the top of the secular charts (“My Place In This World”) and he has collaborated with Amy Grant over the years. For those of you not too familiar with ‘Christian’ pop music, it is fair to say that Smith is at the pinnacle of that particular world. (There may be a couple others who come close.)

Now…when I ran across the following information, it really jolted me in a big way– it was my introduction to the mind boggling possibility of hidden Luciferians who have been deceptively inserted into Christian culture.

Let me say now, when you see some of the evidence below, I certainly agree that we should (at least at this point) be looking at any number of possible explanations as to how and why we can see occult symbolism being displayed in a coded and disguised manner on these Smith CD covers and other of his materials.

Here, for example, is one of his CD’s–“Christmastime”–released in 1998. I’ll get back to this in a moment.


Let’s start with this: On the back of another one of Smith’s CDs entitled “The Big Picture” released in 1986 (see below), his name is spelled backwards. Now, I am not jumping to a conclusion here, nevertheless I would point out that spelling, or talking (and/or a host of others things) backwards is very significant in satanic circles.



However…what is really interesting is that two of the letters in his ‘backwards’ name are RUNIC. They are runes. Notice carefully (see below), the ‘t’ in “Smith” and the ‘m’ in “Michael”. That’s not good. The runic alphabet, in the modern day, is related exclusively to occult practices and witchcraft. It is virtually the satanic alphabet. (The word ‘runic’ means ‘secret’.)

There are several variations of the runic alphabet but in researching, I found that the three major versions which have predominated the occult world, all have the identical ‘t’ and ‘m’ that you see on the back of the Michael W. Smith album.

Now, you may be saying– Come on. It’s just a coincidence. They used several different “fonts” for this stylized print, and they accidently used a couple of runic letters.

Wait a minute– Take another closer look at this “Christmastime” CD cover (seen again, below) which was released 13 years after the aforementioned “Big Picture” album. You will notice that Smith is, again, bringing this runic ‘t’ and ‘m’ into play.

He is forming a runic ‘t’ with his body…going so far as to lower his head, to round off the top of the ‘t’…AND is standing on top of this chair which forms a runic ‘m’. That is pretty shocking stuff.


Ask the question–What in the world is Smith otherwise doing…standing on a chair, striking this weird pose, out in the middle of the snow?

There is therefore, simply no mistaking the fact that on at least two of his CDs, he is displaying these runic/Luciferian symbols…and is doing so in a secret, coded fashion. That is extremely and pointedly ominous. (Again, the “Christmastime” album was released in 1998.)

(I fully realize that, at this point, many questions come rushing to mind. Please understand–I am going to attempt to address all of these questions as we go along. But it takes some doing. That is the whole purpose of this report.)

AN OCCULT EXPERT’S CONFIRMATION
I subsequently had the opportunity to correspond with an expert on the occult –in particular, germanic and Norse occultism. She had personal connection to the occult world and had also obtained a degree in anthropology, apparently with an emphasis on occult issues. After looking over Smith’s pose on the cover of his “Christmastime” CD she was able to routinely provide some interpretation for these particular runes.

I was stunned. I thought I would go an entire lifetime without knowing what this secret runic message was. I later discovered their meaning was readily available on the trusty old Internet…if I had only known where to look for it. Here were her comments and an analysis of the Smith “Christmastime” CD cover–things which I have since confirmed from other sources:

“In this pose, Smith is making the sign of Tyr (the Sky God), who (according to Norse mythology) sacrificed his hand to the Fenris Wolf in order to save others. It is also a warrior symbol of great courage, and of overcoming death. He is standing on an M, which is the rune for Mankind. I don’t see that as sinister but make of it what you will.”

I wrote back the following comments:
“Now, when you say his choice of runes signifies the ‘sky god’ and that this god is being placed above ‘mankind’…that is very significant to me as a student of the Bible. The ancient manuscripts which make up the Bible, refer to Lucifer as “the prince and power of the air”.

Furthermore, the Scriptures indicate that for the time being,all of the world is virtually under Lucifer’s dominion(although not complete control). It seems to me, a Luciferian would be very interested in depicting Lucifer as reigning supreme over mankind. I don’t know what you see from your particular cultural perspective but I can tell you that for Smith to seemingly indicate such a message…is spectacularly and utterly in opposition to his purported ‘conservative Christian’ philosophy.

And once again, given what I have observed in his kindly, charitable demeanor…it’s indicative to me of an ominous ‘Jekyl and Hyde’ thing, going on.

Thanks for your insights.”

In the occult world, not only is Tyr known as a “sky god”…the Egyptian god “Ra” is also known as a ‘sky god’. From the Biblical perspective we know that Satan has come by a number of aliases. It seems a pretty fair surmising that in referencing the “sky god”, Ra and Tyr are therefore likely aliases for the Devil himself.

Of course, in regard to Smith’s display of these runes…if Tyr is only a henchman to Satan…a mere ‘also-ran’ in the pantheon of pagan/demonic gods…would that make it any better? I should think not.

By the way, if you research the pagan religions of the world throughout history, it is intriguing how often the “sky god” concept comes into play: Amaruca and Quetzacouatl, are two different names for supposedly two different pagan deities.

Both of these entities played central roles in South American pagan antiquity, and both are described as “plumed” or “winged” flying serpent gods. Airborne serpent/gods: May we derive a hint here? Are the two different “deities” merely a disguised Lucifer?

Add Ra and Tyr to the list…and whether the Canaanite god “Moloch” (or Molech) is yet another alias for Lucifer, it seems clear that over the course of thousands of years, the Devil has fronted behind several different deity facades and even seems to have shifted his focus of activity geographically, for whatever reason:

From Egypt…to Canaan…to the Aztecs and the Mayans in South America…to the goddess Diana Lucifera, arguably the central deity of the Roman empire (and whom I suspect of being a female version of Lucifer)…to the British Isles and Druidism…along with the Germanic peoples and also the Viking culture…each seems to have recognized a single supreme pagan deity, and yet referred to this ‘god’ by a series of different names. (Even in the Bible, there is the recognition of different names—Satan, Beelzebub, Lucifer, the serpent, the dragon, etc.)

Above: The Teiwaz (Tyr) and Mannaz (Man) runes.

FURTHER INDICATIONS FROM SMITH
If you’re rather inclined to look for some kind of “out” or some kind of “down-to-earth” explanation that would clear things up for Smith…it certainly doesn’t help things to realize that he has openly and enthusiastically acknowledged (apparently without his fans understanding the ominous significance) having patterned himself in the past, after the Alan Parsons Project.

Particularly in the context of what we have already seen here, this would seem to be further grounds for concern, regarding some sort of occult orientation on Smith’s part:

APP is a pointedly occultic rock group which has routinely displayed satanic symbolism on its cover art. Smith made his supportive remarks in an interview with Inside Music magazine, in their Jan/Feb 1991 issue (p.23).

Below, the cover of this Alan Parsons Project album (entitled “EYE IN THE SKY”) has a depiction of the Egyptian/satanic “Eye of Ra”.

And this APP album seems rather self-explanatory.


He even named his first album “The Michael W. Smith Project.” Smith therefore, likewise has a CD cover, where it seems very clear that he is indicating this Eye of Horus/Ra.

In order to better understand this, we need to first take a closer look at the Eye of Ra or “all-seeing eye” occult symbol. In the modern era, the Eye has been adopted as a luciferian/Masonic symbol and is used by a huge array of occultists and occult groups.

The most famous depiction of the “all-seeing eye” is on the U.S. One Dollar bill, where we see this eye placed inside of a triangle (which is yet another occult symbol). But the ‘E of H’ is also cropping up in many other places these days.

Here are some examples of the luciferian Eye of Horus symbol: Top to bottom– the Dollar bill; the classic Egyptian “Eye of Ra”; and a movie poster for “Aeon Flux”.


There are dozens if not hundreds of corporate logos which present modified versions of the “all-seeing eye”…also referred to as the “Eye of Ra” or the “Eye of Horus”. Below are some examples.

Top to bottom: America OnlineTime Warner…a bit further down, ICON Entertainment, and LucasArts.


The Time Warner logo is depicting the “Eye of Ra” occult symbol, by virtue of that line that comes swooping down beneath the ‘eye’ (compare it to the Eye of Ra presentation above).

ICON Entertainment and LucasArts (below) on the other hand, are examples of the eye/triangle combo version of the “all-seeing eye” symbol. And these two logos also give you a good idea of the subtle (and one could even say ‘sneaky’) modifications that are often incorporated in an apparent attempt to disguise the symbol.

ICON Entertainment

By that I mean…notice with these two logos (ICON and LucasArts) how, in both instances, the “eye” is rather slyly tilting into the corner, to create a rough approximation of a triangle/eye combination. Also, notice the visual misdirection of the LucasArts logo, whereby the stick figure ‘man’ with the uplifted arms is all that most people will ever notice.

“OH, PLEASE.”
Don’t be so quick, by the way, to dismiss these symbol displays in various corporate logos, as “nothing”. As a Bible-believer and as someone who should attempt to discern the world around you….even at this early stage of the examination, consider the possibility of a connection between the rich and the powerful of this world..and the “world spirit” himself. Follow along in reading through this information and I believe you’ll begin to realize and understand the full significance.

Again, you are going to see a wide variety of modifications with these occult symbols. This sort of thing is considered ‘par for the course’ in the occult world. After all, the very word “occult” means “secret” or “hidden”. It is the objective of any true occultist…to disguise and to hide his occultic affiliation.

Having said that, the following Michael Smith CD cover is quite troubling. The title of this particular Smith CD is — “I2(EYE)”.

Notice in the background, a shaded triangle (behind Smith’s photo), and at the one corner of the triangle (not as easy to see)…there is the title in red letters– I2(EYE) . Triangle+EYE…get it? Granted, this eye/triangle occult symbol is being presented in a coded fashion…but that, I believe, only makes this more ominous.

By itself, we might brush off this CD cover design as coincidental. But in context…having previously observed the other occult symbolism, this becomes very significant. (I have also wondered why the bottom part of the photo has been torn off, and what that missing portion might reveal, since it was obviously a deliberate tear.)

Below, for additional comparison to the Smith CD: Yet another example of the Eye of Ra in a ‘triangle’ setting.


And by the way…while we’re on the subject of “eyes” which have been depicted tilting subtly into a corner for the purpose of creating an approximated triangle/eye presentation…notice once again, Smith’s 1986 album “The Big Picture”…this time thefront side of the album:


Notice how one of the child’s eyes has been obscured in the shadows, and how the remaining eye has been positioned into one of the corners of the picture frame.

MORE EVIDENCE
I’ve detected yet another thing like this from Smith. Actually a friend pointed out the visual clue (on the cover of a Smith DVD) and I did some research to verify the significance of it.

Let me first set the stage– You have to take a quick look at the history of the so-called ‘Peace symbol’. It’s origins seem rather indisputable to me. Here is a quote:

“Known as the ‘peace sign’ throughout the sixties and into the present day, this symbol is the Teutonic rune of death. Fifties peace advocate Gerald Holtom may have been commissioned by…Bertrand Russell to design a symbol to unite leftist peace marchers in 1958.

It is clear that either Holtom or Russell deemed the Teutonic (Neronic) cross as the appropriate symbol for their cause.

The peace symbol (also called the “broken cross,” “crow’s foot,” “witch’s foot,” “Nero Cross,” “sign of the ‘broken Jew,'” and the “symbol of the ‘anti-Christ”’) is actually a cross with the arms broken.

“The Germanic tribes who used it attributed strange and mystical properties to the sign. Such a ‘rune’ is said to have been used by ‘black magicians’ in pagan incantations and condemnations….To this very day the inverted broken cross–identical to the socialists’ ‘peace’ symbol–is known in Germany as a ‘todesrune,’ or death rune. 

[Added note: Notice in these comments, yet another hint of the
Marxist/occult connection. I cover this whole aspect later on here.]

Not only was it ordered by Hitler’s National Socialists that it must appear on German death notices, but it was part of the official inscription prescribed for the gravestones of Nazi officers of the dread SS. The symbol suited Nazi emphasis on pagan mysticism.” LINK

Take a look at the cover of this Smith DVD– Look carefully at the hair on his forehead: There appears to be a deliberate structuring of these three prongs of hair. It certainly looks as though a ‘modified’ Crow’s Foot/Raven’s Foot is being displayed on Smith’s forehead. As I have said…keep in mind the context of what we have already looked at. He seems to be tilting his head slightly down and to the left.

This “crow’s foot” appears to crop up at yet another Michael W. Smith website — Rocketown.

Rocketown is a direct arm and a creation of the Smith organization. It was named after one of his songs. Again, I normally wouldn’t pay much attention to something that could easily be passed off as an ‘arrow’. But that’s a pretty stubby arrow…so stubby in fact, that it looks like a version of the “crow’s foot” occult symbol…given the context.


I would also say there is almost certainly a dual significancehere, in that this symbol appears to be yet another presentation ofa modified runic “T”.

Teiwaz Rune TYR (“T”)

I say again– One of the things you learn in studying occult symbolism is that devotees come up with all kinds of creative ‘modification’. You have already seen some of this and will see many more examples as you go along here.

These modifications are done for a combination of reasons: To afford a certain degree of “deniability” and/or to flat-out disguise/conceal the symbol being used.

For example, thinking back to Smith’s “Christmastime” CD…even though many occult experts and occultists recognize Smith’s ‘rune posing’ on the cover of this CD…in actuality the undercarriage of the wicker chair he is standing on forms only anapproximation of the runic “M”.

Therefore, in the same way a broad range of variances in cursive or printed writing of the English language can still be routinely deciphered by even an average reader…the occult symbolism and messages are NOT lost on those who know what to look for, despite some of the variations and modifications.

In fact, I have gotten the distinct impression there is almost a kind of competition to see who can come up with the most ingenious modifications and disguises for these symbols. You’ll see more of this shortly.

Moving along: Yet another coded occult symbol is currently displayed (as of December ’07) at the official Michael W.Smith . It is the so-called “infinity” symbol. It looks like a sideways number “8” and is normally associated with mathematical concepts. Though it is not as well known for its occult significance as, say, the Eye of Horus or the Broken Cross (Peace symbol)…it is a clearly established occult symbol nonetheless.

Below, you see an example of the ancient occultic Alchemy symbol for brimstone. It incorporates both the Double Cross of Lorraine, as well as the Infinity symbol. Both are occult symbols in their own right.
By the way, the corporate logos for Nabisco and Exxon also both utilize the Cross of Lorraine in their design….providing yet another indication that occultism (Luciferianism) is a religion/cult for the elite, the rich, the powerful. Of course, the study of occult symbolism in hundreds of corporate logos, Hollywood logos, and in many other places…is another whole world in itself. This will be touched on throughout this report.


Back to our examination of Smith: Below is yet another occultic depiction of the infinity symbol–on a Tarot card referred to as “The Magician”. And below that, the 2007 Christmas CD from Smith which, as you see, incorporates the infinity symbol twice. Currently, this CD is advertised at the MichaelWSmith.com website design (although the site is frequently altered).

THE “ROCKETOWN” EVIDENCE
Finally, any examination of Michael Smith is not complete until we’ve taken a closer look at Smith’s youth club, Rocketown, located in Smith’s hometown of Nashville. He and the staff of Rocketown have consistently represented this place to be a Christian-oriented “safe haven” where Christian parents can send their kids for wholesome and uplifting entertainment.

In light of the evidence to the absolute contrary, it is astounding to me that Smith and his people get away with this.

The fact of the matter is that Rocketown has hosted a long list of overtly satanic rock bands. I repeat– Michael W. Smith’s Rocketown (about a 20 minute drive from Smith’s home outside Nashville) has hosted a huge array of overtly satanic, occultic rock bands which feature pornographic, hardcore obscenity-laced lyrics in their songs.

If you’re having trouble believing this–in just a moment I am going to link you to a Christian website that has specifically focused on researching Rocketown. There you will be able to document for yourself the true nature and character of these many occultic rock bands, and read a number of excerpts from their gut-wrenching, perverted, satanic song lyrics. I couldn’t even bear to place them directly in this report. You’ll have to link over there and see it for yourself.

As of this writing, I have yet to quite figure out just how Rocketown has pulled this off. It may be a sign of the times, that Christian ‘discernment’ is so utterly lacking. But there also appears to be some rather skillful misdirection going on– misleading public statements from Smith and other staff members which give the impression this place is just short of being a Sunday School picnic club, or something.

Here are some samples of the many astonishingly horrendous, blood-soaked “posters” which advertise the concerts being held at Rocketown on a regular basis:

Starting with the top poster (left)– “Gore” (with some sort of grotesque ‘demon-child’ depicted)? “Kill Whitney Dead”?“Bloodwake”What in the world is going on here??! And in the bottom row (on the left)…there’s something about seeing a depiction of a young woman with a chain plunged into her head, a meathook coming out of the front of her face, and a slashed and bloody throat (the “Promised Threat” poster)…that doesn’t make me think about the message of salvation.

To the right of that–if you look at the Lokyata poster for a concert which was recently held at Rocketown (in 2007)…you will notice unfortunately in the upper right corner of this poster, a photo which is blatantly suggestive of sexual behavior.

I would ask Michael Smith– What IS this? What ARE you doing at Rocketown? Why WOULD you allow or promote such things?

The problem is– he has been asked. Rocketown has been approached. There has been no response. Below is the official logo for “Goatblaster”–one of the specific rock bands to have performed at Rocketown–

This is a satanic band, with a blatantly satanic logo, a satanicpentagram, a satanic goat’s head, and with satanic,pornographic song lyrics…AND…they perform at Rocketown. I would ask fellow believers to discern something
here. Please discern something.

Jesus instructs us in the Olivet Discourse to “watch…and pray”and ultimately, the answer to questions about these satanic “false prophets” / “wolves in sheep’s clothing” Evangelicals…is globe-spanning in its implications.

I really believe therefore that, as Jesus stipulates in Matthew 24, one must literally have an accurate understanding ofworld politics in order to decipher the full extent of what this covert infiltration is all about. If you know your Bible, you know that any satanic strategy…is ultimately a geopolitical strategy.

In a very unexpected and diabolically ingenious way, this Evangelical/ Charismatic/fundamentalist infiltration phenomenon ties into a global domination scheme.

In preparation for what lies ahead in this book, I have been delving a bit into the subject of “geopolitics”. We will shortly dive in head first into this subject…and try to understand more fully this whole “hidden Luciferians” phenomenon and how this all ties in to Jesus’ predictions regarding the Devil’s geopolitical strategies in the ‘end times’.

Following my analysis of Denson and Arthur, I will then attempt to go back through history and show evidence of a centuries-old pattern of covert occultism right here in America and elsewhere….and try to demonstrate how all of this relates directly to the ‘end times’ scenarios of Bible prophecy

For the moment though…allow me to put the focus back on this astonishing and deadly serious advisory from Jesus:

He states unequivocally that many who have been His followers throughout life will, in the last days “turn away from the faith and will betray and hate each other” (Matt. 24: 10)…and that furthermore only “he who stands firm to the end will be saved”.

(I personally believe in the “once saved-always saved” doctrine–but from the human vantage point we can only fully confirm our own personal salvation status over a lifetime of faithful followership.)

One of my main goals for this online “book” has been to try to do something to resist this huge deception plan…to give fellow Jesus-followers a “heads up”.

“BEHOLD, I AM WITH YOU ALWAYS.”
Another thing to keep in mind before we look at more research material: No matter how dark the storm clouds on the horizon…we have no need for worry or anxiety. No need to fear or fret. That is the promise (and the offer) of the Scriptures:

“In this world you will have tribulation but be of good cheer for I have overcome the world.” –John 16:33

I will admit—the darker this world becomes, the more amazing are these admonitions in the Bible to “fear nothing”…to “be anxious for nothing”…or “let not your heart be troubled”…etc. But the literal truth of the matter is that no matter what trials or tribulation might befall us, the promise of Scripture is that God will “provide a way…that we may be able to bear up…” under it and through it.

It reminds me of a song we sang hundreds of times throughout my ‘youth group’ years: “Through it all…I’ve learned to trust in Jesus…I’ve learned to depend upon His Word”.

Ten Reasons Christians Should Not Celebrate Halloween

Many in our secular society believe Halloween is nothing more than a harmless festival that allows kids to collect candy. But is it? Its origins lie deeply rooted in the occult, and Christians should stay away. Here are ten reasons why.

  1.  October 31st has long been known as “The Festival of the Dead.” The Celtic tribes and their priests the Druids celebrated this day as a marker for the change from life to death.
  2.  Halloween today is performed usually by adherents of witchcraft who use the night for their rituals. Witches celebrate Halloween as the “Feast of Samhain,” the first feast of the witchcraft year. Being a festival of the dead, Halloween is a time when witches attempt to communicate with the dead through various forms of divination.
  3. Christians should not be involved with occultic practice or divination. Note God’s command against divination in Deuteronomy 18.
  4. Occultists believe Halloween is a time of transition between life and death. Some occult practitioners practiced divination and believed you could learn the secrets of life and wisdom by Iying on a grave and listening to the messages from the long-departed.
  5. Occultists also taught that spirits and ghosts left the grave during this night and would seek out warmth in their previous homes. Villagers, fearful of the possibility of being visited by the ghosts of past occupants, would dress up in costumes to scare the spirits on their way. They would also leave food and other treats at their door to appease the spirits so they would not destroy their homes or crops but instead move on down the road. That is the real reason why kids dress up in costumes today and go door-to-door seeking treats.
  6. Occultists also would try to scare away the spirits by carving a scary face into a pumpkin. This horrible visage would hopefully move the spirit on to another home or village and spare that home from destruction. Sometimes the villagers would light a candle and place it within the pumpkin and use it as a lantern (hence the name, Jack-o-Lantern). This is the origin of carving pumpkins at Halloween.
  7. In some witchcraft covens, the closing ritual includes eating an apple or engaging in fertility rites. In the Bible (Genesis 3), eating a piece of fruit brought sin and death into the world. In witchcraft, eating an apple is symbolic of bringing life. The practice of bobbing for apples brings together two pagan traditions: divination and the fertility ritual.
  8. Schools are removing any religious significance from Christmas (often called winter break) and Easter (spring break). Isn’t it ironic that most public schools still celebrate Halloween even though it has occultic origins?
  9. Participating in Halloween gives sanction to a holiday that promotes witches, divination, haunted houses, and other occultic practices.
  10. Christians should avoid Halloween and develop creative alternatives. Churches can hold a Fall Fun Festival and/or celebrate Reformation Day (also October 31). They should not endorse or promote Halloween.

Our Body Is The Temple From God

Baptist, sign for new spirit and new heart and starting live with Holly Spirit

Spread The Word of Our Lord Jesus Christ
When you can’t forgive other people sin’s, then you also will not forgiven. You let open a door for the evil and it doesn’t stay with this door, many doors will open for the evil spirit. Forgive the others and you will close all this doors. The best is to start by yourself, ask for forgiven to Lord Jesus Christ and you’ll feel something work inside of you. Forgive the others and you will forgiven too. Don’t forget that God Jesus loves us so much, even when we are sinners. When you are need for money or health, trusting if God will help you.

Prayer For Money
Dear God, my struggles with money are bringing me down. I am in dire need for myself and my family. I know that you have all answers, and you always hear me. Please shine your infinite licht into my life. Bless me with abundance so that my family may trive. I thank you for all you have done for me to date And I pray you will always remind me when I forget. That my spirit and soul always dwell in your good graces. Thank you oh Lord, for blessing me with material comfort, so that I am reminded of the bountiful fruits of your deeds (ttp://www.prayers-for-special-help.com)

Have A Relatoinship With God.
Always let God take the first place in your life, this is need for a better blessing. God has given the world, and He wants us to manage the world. We have to look for the seeds He has given to us and for the fish, there must be always enough to feed us. Jesus said, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father exept trough me.” (John 14:6)

Do not labor for the food that persishes, but for the food that endures to eternal life, which the Son of Man will give to you. For on Him God the Father has set His seal. (John 6:27)

We are the temple of God. Silver and gold are very valuable things. God says all this Gold and silver are mine,this means when you need something go to your daddy ‘GOD’who is verry rich, and He will give you what you need. Your heart is from gold,so your heart is pure. Sometimes your heart can be verry hard like stone, but when you believe and pray it will become pure and soft like gold. Like in Haggai 2:4-8 :

4. Yet now be strong, O Zerubbabel, saith the LORD; and be strong, O Joshua, son of Josedech, the high priest; and be strong, all ye people of the land, saith the LORD, and work: for I am with you, saith the LORD of hosts:

5. According to the word that I covenanted with you when ye came out of Egypt, so my spirit remaineth among you: fear ye not.

6. For thus saith the LORD of hosts; Yet once, it is a little while, and I will shake the heavens, and the earth, and the sea, and the dry land;

7. And I will shake all nations, and the desire of all nations shall come: and I will fill this house with glory, saith the LORD of hosts.

8. The silver is mine, and the gold is mine, saith the LORD of hosts.

God never ask back what He give to us. We only have to ask for it. Our God already gives me some good’s and money. “If I were hungry, I would not tell thee: for the world is mine, and the fulness thereof. When god was hungry he will never ask us for money or any food, the world belongs to God, and everything that lives on it.” (Psalm 50.12).

From my friend’s I got 50€,  from another friend I got a voucher from 250€ for buy some furniture and I bought a new table and chairs, I only got to pay myself 18 euro. This are really gifts from our God. Haleluya..! And He will give me alot more because I pray for it and I ask for it. I believe it and He will help me to win money from the work that I do now and in the future. So remember this “God gives and He don’t take from us.”

Richness and property are from God. when here is money or other property comes in to your live, all this comes from God. God can give everryting, He only ask us one thing “Love me” God looks after us, when we are in need or sikness, He knows it, “Behold that which I have seen: it is good and comely for one to eat and to drink, and to enjoy the good of all his labour that he taketh under the sun all the days of his life, which God giveth him: for it is his portion. Every man also to whom God hath given riches and wealth, and hath given him power to eat thereof, and to take his portion, and to rejoice in his labour; this is the gift of God. (Ecclesiastes 5 : 18-19)”

God can give me a few things or He can give me everything. God says “I provides you from everything.” What is the wealth of God? “God owns everything.” God don’t want we live on the edge, God knows exactly why we need, and He will give you the best of it.

Who is your God? How do you know your God? God can give us abundance! God don’t want we live on the edge. God knows exactly what we need. And He will give you the best of all things ever. Have patience and you will get. Because He owns everything. Trust God, He is very merciful. Never point to God when something goes wrong, everything you need, and this means really everything. He will give you. “But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus. Philippians 4:19”

It is God’s pleasure to see you in joy ; “Let them shout for joy, and be glad, that favour my righteous cause: yea, let them say continually, Let the LORD be magnified, which hath pleasure in the prosperity of his servant. (PSALMS 35 : 27)”

God can give mercy about everything ; “8And God is able to make all grace abound toward you; that ye, always having all sufficiency in all things, may abound to every good work: 9 (As it is written, He hath dispersed abroad; he hath given to the poor: his righteousness remaineth for ever. 10 Now he that ministereth seed to the sower both minister bread for your food, and multiply your seed sown, and increase the fruits of your righteousness;) (2Korinthians 9 : 8,9,10)

Poverty and shame you gain by not listening to God ; “Poverty and shame shall be to him that refuseth instruction: but he that regardeth reproof shall be honoured. (Proverbs 13 : 18)”

God says, “Sacrifice and you will be given more.” Sometimes we keep things down, and that is wrong because God is more important than what you hold. If God asks you something, He wants give you something better in its place. Our God Father is very rich. He always wants the best place in our lives. Our first love must always be God.

Finally, come with your questions and desires to Him. Even in our sleep we are blessed (Genesis 22 : 1-5, and Genesis 22 : 10-19). Then 1/10 from your money you will give to God or people who are in need or people who do good work in the name of Jesus Christ. (Malachi 3 : 6-12)
