THIS IS TRUTH MINISTRY with Bishop O.W. Prince / “DO YOU HAVE THE PERPETUAL SIGN OF BEING GOD’S PEOPLE?”

Sabbath Keep Commands 1-john-5-3

Good Sabbath Morning to Everybody.

Yahweh is to be Praised and Worshiped in the authority and name of His Son the Holy Messiah Yeshua.

All Praise and Glory Belongs To THE FATHER!

On This Final Sabbath Day of 2014, I would like to share a page from my blog demonstrating the “Eternal Mark (sign)” of the Blood bought Covenant People of God. God calls this sign (Mark) perpetual which means everlasting and uninterrupted.

It is not a visible mark on the body as some may conjecture but a mark on the soul, heart and mind that God can see. It is evidenced by the way we think about keeping God’s Eternal Commandment – whether we disobey them as obsolete or pervert (twist) them into doctrines of demons or believe, trust and obey them as absolute commands of God.

I will admit that this study is a little involved and requires a born again transformed mind and a humble and submissive spirit that hungers to please God and imitate Christ as opposed to fitting into religious norms.

Darkness cannot comprehend this Light.

I realize that some folks would rather hold on to a comfortable lie than face the TRUTH. TRUTH may require them to repent and change and it may separate them from people, things and traditions that they love.

We all have to make a change. We all have to decide who we love the most – God or man, Truth or tradition.

When the doctors told me that I will never be able to eat the same way again or do the things I love to do the way I love to do them, it was hard and disheartening. But in the final analysis the decision to live or die was up to me. I chose to live and by so doing I chose to change and do those things that were prescribed for me to do so that I may have life and have it as full as possible.

At the end of this lesson you will have a decision to make. I pray that you choose to please God.

May The Holy Spirit of God Open Your Eyes, Your Hearts and Your Minds To The Hidden Truths Of God’s Eternal Commandments and Living WORD and Draw You Out of Religious Darkness, Deceit and Confusion into HIS ONE CLEAR TRUTH and Marvelous LIGHT! May You Receive The Eternal Mark Of God. amen.

Did You Know?

Hebrews 4 word-of-God1

~ This article is intended for the mature Christian and takes for granted that its readers have been exposed to some formal  education regarding the history of the Bible. This post may be too radical for some.  ~

Did you know that at one time it was considered against the Law of the Church and State to translate the Holy Scriptures into a common language for the public to be able to read it?

Did you know that one of the Bible translators who translated the Holy Scriptures into English was burned at the stake as a heretic?

Did you know that Monarchs, Emperors and Kings commissioned their own scholars to translate the Holy Scriptures into their own versions and that they sanctioned the adding of various stories to the text of THE BOOK and omitted whole books from the Bible?

Did you know that at one time it was against the Law to be caught with an “unauthorized” version of the Bible?

Did you realize that the Apostles, Evangelists, Deacons/Ministers, Teachers, Preachers, Bishops/Elders and Disciples from the original first century “Church of Jesus Christ” did not preach out of the Bible but out of the Holy Spirit of Christ?

Did you know that God never told us to believe in the Bible?

Did you know that God nor Christ equated the Bible with The Living Word of God?

Did you realize that it is possible to know the Bible without actually knowing the WORD of GOD?

REPENT!!!

1 John 2_27

The Holy Scripture themselves record the Holy Word of God saying to the Pharisees that, “You search the scriptures, for in them you hope that you have eternal life, and they testify concerning Me (The Eternal Saving Word of God).”

And again Christ is recorded as saying, “No one can come to Him unless the Father who sent him draws them.”

And the Holy Scripture records Christ as proclaiming that “HE IS THE LIVING WORD, The Way and The Truth and The Life; no man comes to The Father but by Him alone.”

No where in the New Testament Holy Scriptures does it teach us that Eternal Life is found in the Bible.

No where in the New Testament Holy Scriptures does it tell us that the Bible contains eternal life and salvation.

No where in the New Testament Holy Scriptures does it proclaim that by reading the Bible one may discover eternal life and unveil the mysteries of God.

My friends, The Holy Bible itself teaches us that it is the Holy Spirit of God that reveals Truth and leads us to eternal life in Christ.

Holy-Spirit_Series-Art

1 Corinthians 2:10
For to us God revealed them through the Spirit; for the Spirit searches all things, even the depths of God.

Without the teaching Power of the Holy Spirit, we will remain in utter confusion and darkness regarding genuine salvation and the Word of God.

The Holy Scriptures are good to know but to know its Author is better.

REPENT!!!

A CRUMB FROM THE MASTER’S TABLE plus My Song of Testimony and Praise

The Master's Table

About three in the afternoon Jesus cried out in a loud voice, “Eli, Eli, lema sabachthani?” (which means “My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?”). ~ Matthew 27:46

bar47

If you have ever felt as if God wasn’t near or as if God abandoned you, you are not alone. And it doesn’t necessarily mean that you have moved far away from God. If you are saved, it could mean that you are in the perfect will of God and your present circumstances are just temporary.

God may be using your suffering to help others.

In spite of our pains, troubles, disappointments and many sufferings, we must still trust God and never doubt him for in the end we are going to win.

A CRUMB FROM THE MASTER’S TABLE / “Secret Prayer Is Best” (August 18th 2014 Edition)

The Master's Table

“When you pray, you are not to be like the hypocrites; for they love to stand and pray in the synagogues and on the street corners so that they may be seen by men. Truly I say to you, they have their reward in full. But you, when you pray, go into your inner room, close your door and pray to your Father who is in secret, and your Father who sees what is done in secret will reward you.” (Matthew 6:5-6)

TODAY’S SABBATH MESSAGE / “THE HOLY BIBLE VERSUS THE HOLY SPIRIT” – Has the Bible Become Our god?

Bible Knowing the Bible

I think that some of us need to remember and others of us need to be informed that the Bible, as we know it today, did not exist in the original Church (Ekklesia) of Yehowshua founded by His Apostles.

The One True Body of Believers – the Ekklesia – were totally dependent upon the Power, Revelation and Demonstration of God’s Holy Spirit through the Words of Christ’s Apostles with whom He established His Church (Ekklesia).

The Apostles of Christ would refer to The Holy Scriptures (The Torah / Pentateuch) at times to confirm, affirm and proclaim the fulfillment of the promises of God in Christ Jesus our LORD and Savior.  Christ himself often proclaimed that the Holy Scriptures were fulfilled in Him and that The Holy Spirit would reveal all divinely hidden Knowledge and Truth.

Jesus said that “the Helper – the Holy Spirit – whom the Father will send in His name, He will teach us all things, and bring to our remembrance all that He said to us.” (John 14:26)

“The Holy Spirit does the teaching – not the Bible. Text books are sometimes necessary for information but a teacher is required for revelation” (Bishop O.W. Prince)

“But when he, the Spirit of truth, comes, he will guide you into all the truth. He will not speak on his own; he will speak only what he hears, and he will tell you what is yet to come.” (John 16:13)

Jesus promises us that the Holy Spirit will guide us into all truth and he assures us that we can trust what the Holy Spirit speaks because what the Holy Spirit speaks is revelation directly from The Holy Father and not from sinful man.

God’s Truth Cannot Simply Be Obtained, Cataloged, Inventoried or Archived by way of Human Intellect, Human Wisdom or Philosophical/Theological Disciplines or Documentation or Compilation in a Book or Books. 

God’s Saving Power, Wisdom, knowledge and Understanding cannot be contained within the pages of a book or a collection of books. God is simply too much God for that. (Isaiah 55:8-9)

Without the Revelation Power of The Holy Spirit of Christ, the Bible is just another book of information.

1 Corinthians 1:20
“Where is the wise person? Where is the teacher of the law? Where is the philosopher of this age? Has not God made foolish the wisdom of the world?

1 Corinthians 3:19-20
For the wisdom of this world is foolishness before God. For it is written, “He is THE ONE WHO CATCHES THE WISE IN THEIR CRAFTINESS”; and again, “THE LORD KNOWS THE REASONINGS of the wise, THAT THEY ARE USELESS.”

Jesus is recorded as having said that The Father purposely hid the mysteries of Heaven and The Kingdom of God from the wise and learned of this world and chose only to reveal them to those who have become His little children. (Matthew 11:25)

Now don’t misunderstand me. I believe that Holy Scripture is contained within the Bible but biblical literary history reveals that over 600 books of Holy Scripture was also omitted from the Bible by unconverted men with evil or political motives and agendas. And even today, many groups are re-writing the pages of the Bible so as to support their human philosophical views of faith and salvation. They subtly and brilliantly try to make God’s Word agree with their theologies and philosophies. Because of this, everyone is confused and at odds with each other. There are just too many versions of the One Saving Truth for anyone to tell which is real and which is false. Without the discerning power of God’s Holy Spirit, we are confused and lost (1 Corinthians 14:33).

Furthermore, reading the Holy Bible doesn’t make us saved saint. If that were the case, I would have been saved the very first that time I read the whole Bible. If that were true, then only those who could read would be saved. If reading the Bible and studying Holy Scriptures alone could save then every Hebrew, Jew, Israelite, Rabbi, Scribe, Pharisee, Bible student and every literate human being would be saved and those who were illiterate (unable to read) would be lost. If the Bible was the complete saving work of God, then Christ’s Crucifixion was not necessary. Reading and studying The Bible is all that would be necessary for salvation and rebirth. Salvation would be a human intellectual endeavor of self-improvement and self-salvation. But God forbid such blasphemy.

Thank God that eternal salvation comes only through the Blood of Christ. The Holy Bible, or rather, the Holy Scriptures contained within its pages, can lead one to the giver of Eternal Life and point one in the direction of genuine salvation but it never claims to be the source of Salvation or to be God.

The “Bible” is not to be worship as if it were God or trusted as if it were a sources of divine revelation and salvation, but it is a tool that can be used by God to reveal His Truth to us through His Holy Spirit – especially to those have been gifted with His Holy Spirit.

Remember that Jesus told Peter that, “Flesh and blood did not reveal who He is and that the divine revelation of who He is was not learned through any human means, but The Father who is in heaven revealed it.  And that it would be upon such powers of revelation that He would establish His Ekkesia (Church). (Matthew 16:16-18)

The prudent and repentful should want to know how to receive His Holy Spirit (The Divine Teacher Revelator).

Many have searched the scriptures looking for eternal life (John 5:39) but the scriptures testify of Christ and Christ testifies of God the Father who promises to send the Holy Teacher, Guide and Comforter to those who have obeyed His Commandments regarding entering His eternal Kingdom (John 3:3-7 and Acts 2:38). This is why I stress the importance of having a genuine man of God who is anointed by God with His Holy Spirit to guide and teach us in the things of God.

“Without the Holy Spirit of God, a Pastor-Preacher is just another paid public speaker spouting philosophies and theological rhetoric and social assumptions out of his won imagination. He is like sounding brass and tinkling cymbals, signifying nothing.”

Don’t make the assumption that the Bible is the literal and infallible Word of GOD. CHRIST JESUS IS THE INFALLIBLE LIVING WORD OF GOD (JOHN 1).

God said that He would send the comforter to lead us into all truth. He never said that He would send the Bible to lead us into all truth. The Bible is an incomplete collection of Holy Scriptures. And because much of the original language and text of Holy Scripture was either lost or persecuted out of existence, what remains is subject to interpretation. And the only interpretation that can be trusted is the Holy Spirit of God – the original writer of sacred text. The Holy Spirit searches and reveals the deep things of God.

But man has tried to usurp this divine Law and principle through theological studies. Man has placed his intellectual prowess above the revealing Power of the Holy Spirit. Thus we have Doctors of Divinity and other academia credentialed experts preaching what their intellect has revealed instead of what God’s Holy Spirit has spoken.

Because of man’s reliance upon his on understanding and thoughts about God, we now have the Presbyterian thought, the Catholic thought, the Methodist thought and the Non-Denominational thought and many others distinctions of thought.

Ezekiel 13 says that they are preaching out of their own imaginations…prophesying out of their own thoughts and that The LORD is against them.

WOW!!!

Now if you are interested in knowing the truth and entering the Kingdom of God, The Holy Scriptures point the way but we have to obey what is commanded in the Holy Scriptures in order to begin to see what God is saying.

Jesus said to Nicodemus, “unless a person is born again from above, he cannot see (understand, comprehend, and grasp hold of) the Kingdom of God… unless a person is born from water and the Spirit, he cannot enter the Kingdom of God.

Unless we are born of water baptism in the name of Christ Jesus and indwelt with His Holy Spirit we cannot enter Heaven.

“We Must Be Born Again!”

Everyone needs to know that Eternal Life is not found in the Bible but in Christ Jesus our LORD.

Everyone needs to know that reading the Bible may be good religion but Faith comes by hearing the Word of Christ (The Anointed One of God) and salvation comes from obeying His Living Word.

On the day of Pentecost when Peter spoke to the multitude in Acts 2, He didn’t have a Bible, but he had the Holy Spirit. And the Holy Spirit gave directions for salvation that day and everyday since. He said…

“Turn from sin, (Repent) return to God, and each of you be immersed in water–Baptized in the authority of Yeshua the Messiah for forgiveness of your sins, and you will receive the gift of the Ruach HaKodesh (The Holy Spirit of God)!  For the promise is for you, for your children, and for those far away — as many as Adonai our God may call!”

This was the Holy Spirit speaking through the Apostle Peter to all of us today. He spoke these commands as from God Himself without there ever having been a Bible or a Torah to quote from. These instructions and commands had not previously been documented anywhere else. They were not yet canonized as Holy Scripture.  But because they were spoken by the Holy Spirit, they carried the Power of God Himself – the power of Life eternal and they cannot be changed.

Now many years later, letters and books were collected that later became known as the Bible and in the Bible are Holy Scriptures written by The Holy Spirit. And regardless of how many translations, mistranslations and interpretations that man may produce of this holy work, Only its Author can reveal what He really means in His Word.

I believe in and fully support the written text of Holy Scripture. Reading, studying and deciphering The Word of God is good and highly recommended and necessary in order for us to know how to respond to the revelation of God in Christ.  Studying the Bible takes us just so far then we have to choose to Trust and Obey what is commanded of us. And if we stopped there, we would be no better off than the scribes and pharisees of ancient times.  But Christ Jesus promises us a more excellent teacher – The Holy Spirit.  The Holy Spirit of promise is the One who reveals to us the deep things of God and the mysteries of the Bible (Romans 10:17, Galatians 3:2-5, Colossians 3:16,  1 Thessalonian 2:13, John 14:17 and John 14:26, 1 John 5:6).

Note that the listeners of Acts 2:37-41, without the benefit of a Bible, heard the Gospel message, believed, obeyed and 3,000 souls were added to the Ekklesia that day.

Everyone needs to know that when it comes to knowing the Bible, knowing its Author is better.

The Holy Spirit is Essential and MANDATORY FOR revelation and SALVATION!

I assure you that I stand deathly afraid of saying the wrong thing about God and His Holy Spirit.

I must trust and obey the Holy Spirit in all areas of my life – for I am in utter ignorance without the revelation, knowledge, wisdom and understanding of the Holy Spirit.

I hold the written Word of God as Sacred and Holy but due to Satan’s deceptions and man’s corruption of the written Word, I then must depend on the author of the written Word to tell me What His Word means. I dare not trust my own feeble and sinful intellect, imagination or understanding.

Now Don’t Get It Twisted!

I love the Bible but I love its Author More.

All glory and honor belongs to God the Father in the name of Christ our Lord.

May The Holy Spirit Reveal God’s Saving Truth To You and All Who Read This Commentary.

Amen.

A CRUMB FROM THE MASTER’S TABLE

The Master's Table

And Jesus entered the temple and drove out all those who were buying and selling in the temple, and overturned the tables of the money changers and the seats of those who were selling doves. And He said to them, “It is written, ‘MY HOUSE SHALL BE CALLED A HOUSE OF PRAYER’; but you are making it a ROBBERS’ DEN.” (Matthew 21:12-13)

The closer you are to the Father, the less tolerant you are of those who disrespect Him.

My Only Concern Is…

Jesus Prayer cryAs I approach the one year anniversary of my life and death struggle and the miracle of answered prayers, I am reminded of how very fragile and fleeting life is. And although we don’t want to think about it, one day will be our last day here on earth. And I just want all of my friends and enemies alike to know that it has been and continues to be my prayer that you receive from the Lord what He has entrusted me to deliver to you without charge or prejudice—the saving Word of God. I pray and hope that the commentaries, Bible questions, videos, audio lessons and radio broadcasts, along with my webpages and newsletters have inspired some to repent of sin, turn from their wicked ways, seek God’s face, surrender to His will and Obey His Eternal Commandments. All of the countless articles, posts and video and radio productions are hard work but they are works of obedient Love for God and sacrificial Love for you.

It is my deepest hope that none should perish but that all should come to repentance and the Truth of salvation in Christ Jesus. For the day of our departure will come as a thief in the night and I want to be ready when my day comes. I don’t want to die with my work undone or anybody’s blood on my hands. Therefore, I sound the alarm to Repent before it is too late. (Ezekiel 33:1-9)

While some are concerned with their ministerial careers and position in their churches and communities, I am only concerned with carrying out the mission and purpose of God – Saving the lost, deceived, confused, hurt, misled, damaged, trapped and dying souls who are willing and eager to hear and obey God’s Truth.

I have learned that God’s way is eternal and does not change because He doesn’t change. He is the same yesterday, today and forever. His commands are eternal because they were perfect from the beginning. And to truly worship the LORD, we must learn to call His Law a delight and not try to explain them away or dismiss them. I pray and hope that you’ve heard the Voice of God and not my voice and that your path is straighter though narrower than it was when we first met.

Now may the God of peace who brought up our Lord Jesus from the dead, that great Shepherd of the sheep, through the blood of the everlasting covenant, make you complete in every good work to do His will, working in you what is well pleasing in His sight, through Jesus Christ, to whom be glory forever and ever. Amen.

All Glory and Honor belongs to God the Father in the name of Christ our Lord.

I Love You!

WAS IT WORTH IT?

Hookup_Sex culture

At first it starts out so “innocently.” At least it seems so. Just a glance, a quick look, a touch—a jolt of excitement. And then another touch and another jolt of excitement. A moment of curious infatuation turns into a lustful fascination. It pulls you in, until you are sinking in a quicksand of writhing unbridled passion and exchange of bodily fluids. One time becomes two, then three. One moment becomes an eternity. A momentary lapse in morals becomes a recurring sinful habit. It becomes easier and easier each time to dismiss God’s eternal moral law in favor of your own need for immediate sexual gratification. After all, you cannot put the genie back in the bottle. Your life has now changed forever. Your virginity (sexual purity) along with your self-esteem and dignity are now gone. You try to dull the pain and justify the lost by engaging in even more sexual depravity. You buy into the demonic notion of consensual sex whereby society says that it is ok so it must be alright. Society, the media, the internet and the movies all portray causal sex as healthy and good so you say that “It is all good.” You twist and pollute the Word of God to accommodate your immoral acts.  You blame others for judging you but it is the Word that judges us all. In reality you are filled with disappointment, frustration, shame and guilt. You can never get back what you so foolishly gave away. Now everyone has to deal with your anger, your brokenness, your hidden shame, your unspoken frustration, your bitternes and distrust.

Your disobedience has placed you in the predicament that you are now in and your rebellious, prideful, self-gratifying attitude prohibits you from coming clean and confessing that you were wrong. You don’t beg God for forgiveness but justify yourself as only being human. Therefore, you not only have lost your sexual purity and self-worth, you have lost your way and your soul.

And when you lift your eyes in hell, ask yourself the question, “Was it worth it?”

However, there is GOOD NEWS.

The Good New is that you can start over if you CONFESS and REPENT!

“If we say that we have no sin, we are deceiving ourselves and the truth is not in us. If we confess our sins, He is faithful and righteous to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. If we say that we have not sinned, we make Him a liar and His word is not in us. (1 John 1:8-10)

“Therefore if anyone is in Christ, they are a New Creation: old things are passed away; behold ALL THINGS ARE MADE NEW.” (2 Corinthians 5:17)

Therefore, “Repent, and each of you be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins; and you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit.”

You can be saved if you would OBEY ACTS 2:38 and have all your sins washed away.

REPENT!

I Know That God’s Word Is Right But Somebody’s Wrong

Preachers-of-L.A.

Over the course of 30 plus years, I have noticed that for many, the office and title of Pastor has become a means to an end. It has become a career and a vocation. It has become a way to become famous and wealthy.  In some instances it is a vehicle to achieve self-importance, boost self-esteem or hide prior bad acts.

I have noticed that the field of ministry has been inundated and flooded with folks with questionable morals, fornicating backgrounds and hidden agendas. They want others to think that they have been called, sent, anointed and appointed when it fact they are liars, deceivers, vindictive pretenders, injured and damages souls who have not yet owned up to their immoral behaviors before seeking to hide their true nature under the camouflage of the titles or positions of pastor, evangelist, elder, bishop, prophetess, preacher or apostle. They deceive themselves and others into thinking that they are something that they are not. They depend heavily upon image, public perception, religious ceremonies, academic credentials and certificates of ordination for their sense of authority and self-worth. But they are not converted (Born of the water and of the Spirit) or commissioned by God to do anything for Him or in His name. (Ezekiel 13)

Women Preachers!

What is even more astonishing is the fact that they are apparently unaware of their condition.

Let us hear what the Word of God says about such individuals.

“Not everyone who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but the one who does the will of my Father who is in heaven. On that day many will say to me, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name, and cast out demons in your name, and do many mighty works in your name?’ And then will I declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from me, you workers of lawlessness.’…For such men are false apostles, deceitful workers, disguising themselves as apostles of Christ. No wonder, for even Satan disguises himself as an angel of light. Therefore it is not surprising if his servants also disguise themselves as servants of righteousness, whose end will be according to their deeds.” (Matthew 7:21-23 and 2 Corinthians 11:13-15)

The Word of God identifies the servants of Satan as those who enter the ministry under false pretense and those who have not been born again according to the commands of God.

Be careful who you listen to and follow. Don’t let every entertaining spirit and emotionally charged rhetoric deceive you. Test the spirit to see if it is from God. God has an order and a way that doesn’t change because He doesn’t change. He is the same yesterday, today and forever.

If you are listening to someone who hasn’t surrendered to the commands and order of God and who doesn’t line up with God’s Word, leave them alone. Work out your salvation with fear and trembling. Obey the Word!

I know that God is Right but somebody’s wrong.
