TO GOD BE THE GLORY!!!
The Authorities of the Christian religion are so very sure of themselves with regards to knowing what is sin and what isn’t and who is anointed and who isn’t that many of them question and openly challenge the authority of a divinely sent messenger of God and his right, power and authority to speak as God’s AMBASSADOR.
Based upon their own humanly contrived theologies, traditions , fabricated suppositions and prerequisites and credentialing policies – which have no basis in HOLY SCRIPTURE nor is sanctioned by Yehowshua or His Apostles – many deceived, arrogant and self-assured “Christian Leaders” have challenged and disqualified the ones whom Yahweh has sent unto them.
They are the Pharisees of contemporary Christianity and the watchdogs of their denominations’ pulpits and churches.
But this is not a surprise to the saint’s of GOD. Christ told us to expect this for if they persecuted the head of the house, they will also persecute its members. (Matthew 10:25 and 2 Timothy 4:3)
Yehowshua’s (Jesus’) divine authority was challenged by the religious leaders in Matthew 21:23-27.
And when he entered the temple, the chief priests and the elders of the people came up to him as he was teaching, and said, “By what authority are you doing these things, and who gave you this authority?”
Jesus replied, “I have a question for you. If you tell me the answer, I’ll tell you what kind of authority I have to do these things. Where did John get his authority to baptize? Did he get it from heaven or from humans?”
They argued among themselves, “If we say ‘from heaven,’ he’ll say to us, ‘Then why didn’t you believe him?’ But we can’t say ‘from humans’ because we’re afraid of the crowd, since everyone thinks John was a prophet.” Then they replied, “We don’t know.”
Jesus also said to them, “Neither will I tell you what kind of authority I have to do these things.
Every since the beginning, The Messiah and those who genuinely follow and obey The Messiah, have defied the established religious institutions and their authorities and stood boldly in the AUTHORITY and POWER of THE WAY, THE TRUTH and THE LIFE of Yehowshua HaMashiach (Jesus The Christ). They boldly and upon threat of torture, death and excommunication, preached, taught, evangelized and baptized without any human agency’s approval, license, ordination or sanction. And because of their HOLY BOLDNESS and defiant disregard for the religious authorities of the traditional mainstream religion, the religious powers sought to silence, persecute, torture and kill all saints of the ALMIGHTY YAHWEH who held to the gospel and name of CHRIST. (Acts 4:18)
There is nothing new under the sun. Many mainstream Christian religious authorities are still persecuting, excommunicating, torturing, murdering and threatening the God-sent messengers of Yahweh today. Ambassadors of Christ are still having their divine authority questioned, ridiculed, challenged and their divine power diminished by the wicked ones. (Mark 6:5)
Many messengers of FATHER GOD endure having their divine authority challenged, questioned and dismissed as lacking in merit because they don’t comply with or meet some arbitrary and humanly contrived prerequisites for Preaching and Pastoring in the churches and Christian organizations of the lost and deceived.
Please don’t get it twisted. God never sends His Shepherds to pastor in the churches of Satan. God never sends His Shepherds to pastor goats but sheep. Therefore, if the goats are butting (challenging/questioning/ doubting/disqualifying and dismissing ) the saintly and divine authority that we received from Christ through His Spirit, they have not injured us but themselves and have counted themselves unworthy of Christ and salvation. (Luke 10:16 and Matthew 22:9)
For them (The Pharisees of Contemporary Christianity and Professional Pastors) it is not about being genuinely saved in accordance with HOLY SCRIPTURE and being authentically sent by FATHER YHVH with HIS divine message of salvation but it is about conforming to their perverted and preconceived Protestant denominational and/or Catholic philosophies or doctrines whereby one may be sanctioned by their religious agencies to serve in their agency’s churches and organizations as an organizationally sanctioned, licensed and/or ordained Pastor, Preacher, Elder, Bishop, Minister, Deacon¸ Reverend, Evangelist or some other ecclesiastical title and position.
Mankind and her Christian Religious Sects and Denominations Have Assumed Divine Prerogative and Have Set themselves up as judge and LORD over authorizing Ambassadors and Messengers for CHRIST in their houses of worship. But YHVH Has Not Commanded nor Authorized Them To Do So.
BECAUSE OF THIS PERVERSION, MANY ARE CHURCH AUTHORIZED, CHURCH LICENSED AND CHURCH ORDAINED BUT STILL ARE A CHILD OF HELL.
Personally, this is proof positive that what folks habitually and traditionally refer to as the “Christian church” isn’t the Body of Christ at all but the religious institution of man. (Matthew 7:21-23)
Today it is common place to challenge and question GOD’S Messengers by asking them where were they licensed and ordained or who licensed them and ordained them or from where did they receive their credentials and/or titles and “By what authority are they doing these things and who gave them this authority?”
The pharisees and religious bigots are not questioning our salvation or our veracity and commitment to the authentic doctrine of Christ and His Apostles. To the contrary. They are examining our conformity to their doctrines and assessing whether or not we hold suitable ordinations and human credentials. (2 John 1:10)
This brazen disrespect for the authority of GOD has only resulted in the demise and downfall of the CHRISTIAN FAITH whereby the saints who were sent to deliver the final warning before Christ’s return were not heard or given space to be heard because they were not of this world or its mainstream Christian belief system but of Yehowshua and the authentic HOLY SPIRIT. (John 15:19)
We are of the Ruach HaKodesh (HOLY SPIRIT) as opposed to the counterfeit spirit of holiness that we see DEMON–strated in places of Christian worship all over the world.
I strongly suggest and urge that everyone please examine and search the HOLY Scriptures for yourselves for they point to CHRIST and not to Christian Religions or denominational or Catholic authorities. (John 5:39)
I also urge everyone to please change their ways, REPENT and HEAR WHAT THE SPIRIT IS SAYING UNTO THE EKKLESIA OF CHRIST AND THOSE WHO EARNESTLY SEEK TO BE SAVED.
TRUE AUTHORITY AND POWER ONLY COMES FROM GOD THROUGH CHRIST.
OBEY ACTS 2:38 AND ENTER INTO THE EKKLESIA OF THE LORD.

TO GOD BE THE GLORY!!!
For this reason also, God highly exalted Him, and bestowed on Him the name which is above every name, so that at the name of Jesus EVERY KNEE WILL BOW, of those who are in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and that every tongue will confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father. ~ Philippians 2:9-11
Many think that by confessing the Lord Jesus Christ that they are saved. But the devil and his angels are also made to confess Christ Jesus as LORD (“those under the earth”). And the devil is still going to be cast into the lake of fire (Revelations 20:20). The devil’s confession of Christ as LORD is not going to spare him the judgment of damnation. And neither will it spare us.
Everybody will be made to profess Christ as Lord to the Glory of God the Father. But not everyone who professes Christ is saved/born again.
We need to be born again. We need to have the blood of Christ applied to our sins through repentance and baptism into His name.
Obey God’s Instructions On How To Enter The Kingdom of God.
Obey Acts 2:38 and be transformed into a new creature in Christ Jesus!
~Ain’t Nothing Wrong With You. Something’s Wrong With Them~
“And the LORD told him: “Listen to all that the people are saying to you; it is not you they have rejected, but they have rejected me as their king.” – 1 Samuel 8:7
“Whoever listens to you listens to me; whoever rejects you rejects me; but whoever rejects me rejects him who sent me.” – Luke 10:16
The Bible clearly indicates that those of us who have been truly sent by God and speak the words that He sent us to speak would be rejected by almost everyone. (John 15:18) And when we are rejected, we should not take it too personally because it is not we who are being rejected but our Father who sent us. So don’t think that something is wrong with you when you don’t fit in or when you are rejected by men.
There is nothing wrong with us because we Keep The Commandments of God.
There is nothing wrong with us because we hold fast to holiness.
There is nothing wrong with us because we embrace sexual purity and despise immorality.
There is nothing wrong with us because we follow the example of Christ and His Apostles.
There is nothing wrong with us because our message is God’s message and not the message of the world’s systems of theology.
There is nothing wrong with us because we hate our earthly lives and eagerly look forward to eternity in the kingdom of God.
There is nothing wrong with us!
There must be something wrong with them.
The problem lies within the arrogant, rebellious and unrepentant heart of the sinner.
It’s A Family Matter
“Brother will betray brother to death, and a father his child; children will rebel against their parents and have them put to death. You will be hated by everyone because of me… Do not suppose that I have come to bring peace to the earth. I did not come to bring peace, but a sword. For I have come to turn ‘a man against his father, a daughter against her mother, a daughter in-law against her mother-in-law—a man’s enemies will be the members of his own household.’” – Matthew 10:21-22, 34-36
Following Christ and the Commands of God is dangerous and risky business. It will cause us to be hated, despised and even killed by our own blood relatives.
Christ reminds us that we may sometimes have to choose between him and our relatives. He says, “Anyone who loves their father or mother more than me is not worthy of me; anyone who loves their son or daughter more than me is not worthy of me.” – Matthew 10:37
And elsewhere he promises that, “Everyone who has left houses or brothers or sisters or father or mother or children or lands, for the sake of the Gospel, will receive a hundred times as much in this present age – along with persecutions – and will inherit eternal life.” – Mathew 19:29, Mark 10: 29-30
But God does not leave us without a family, He defines our family in a more eternal and spiritual way. He says, “For whoever does the will of my Father in heaven is my brother and sister and mother.” – Matthew 12:50
Everyone who keeps the Commandments of God is my family member. Everyone who is born-again according to the Holy Scriptures is my relative. We are related by Water, Spirit and Blood. (1 John 5:6-8)
“Then the kingdom of heaven shall be likened to ten virgins who took their lamps and went out to meet the bridegroom.Now five of them were wise, and five were foolish.Those who were foolish took their lamps and took no oil with them, but the wise took oil in their vessels with their lamps.But while the bridegroom was delayed, they all slumbered and slept. “And at midnight a cry was heard: ‘Behold, the bridegroom is coming; go out to meet him!’ Then all those virgins arose and trimmed their lamps. And the foolish said to the wise, ‘Give us some of your oil, for our lamps are going out.’ But the wise answered, saying, ‘No, lest there should not be enough for us and you; but go rather to those who sell, and buy for yourselves.’ And while they went to buy, the bridegroom came, and those who were ready went in with him to the wedding; and the door was shut. “Afterward the other virgins came also, saying, ‘Lord, Lord, open to us!’ But he answered and said, ‘Assuredly, I say to you, I do not know you.’ “Watch therefore, for you know neither the day nor the hour in which the Son of Man is coming.’” – (Matthew 25:1-13)
There is no time or opportunity to get ready when He comes. We need to be ready when He comes.
The Lord is coming like a thief in the night. He is coming for a people (Church) who are radiant and glowing with the Light of the Oil of Expectancy.
“He is coming for a bride that He may sanctify unto Himself; one that has been cleansed by the washing of water (baptism) in His name and by the washing of His Living Word that He might present her to Himself as the Church in all her glory, having no spot or wrinkle or any such thing.” – (Ref. Ephesians 5:27)
BE READY WHEN HE COMES!
“And even if our gospel is veiled, it is veiled to those who are perishing, in whose case the god of this world has blinded the minds of the unbelieving so that they might not see the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God…” ~ 2 Corinthians 4:3-4
One of the most difficult things I had to learn to do as a minister of God’s Holy Word is to allow those who choose to go to hell – to go to hell. (O.W. Prince)

O.W. Prince Ministries Thanks Everyone Who Participated Today.
Congratulations Sister Carolyn White of Carrollton, Virginia. You are The Bible Scholar Champion for Tuesday, May 28, 2013.
Thank you Sister White for helping to make the Bible Scholars Group a fun, loving and caring place of learning and sharing. You have allowed your Light to Shine Brightly Today. Your answer is correct. You have demonstrated superb biblical scholarship.
A lot of evangelists and preachers, especially the crusade type evangelists, teach that Jesus has done it all and that there is nothing for us to do in order to be saved other than to “receive” what Jesus has already done. They often describe themselves as leading a sinner to Christ. They tell the sinner that all they have to do is “receive” the finished work of Christ.
Is this sound doctrine? Is this what the Apostles of Christ taught? Where is this illustrated (Shown to have happened) in Holy Scripture?
The answer for today’s Bible Challenge Question is: No!
This is neither sound doctrine nor was it taught by Christ or His Apostles. No one was ever saved just by [Receiving] accepting the message of the Gospel of the Kingdom of God. The Apostles taught belief [trust, obedience, submissiveness, surrender] to God through Christ Jesus and that Jesus is the Son of God. They taught how God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Spirit and power, and how he went around doing good and healing all who were under the power of the devil, because God was with him…They taught about their witness of His death, burial and resurrection and of how the prophets foretold of Him…They taught that to receive Christ one had to Repent, be Baptized in water in the name of Jesus Christ For the Forgiveness of Sin and that God would give them the promised gift and sign of their acceptance by giving them the Holy Spirit that would empower them to speak with other tongues. All of this is well documented and illustrated throughout Holy Scripture.
No one was considered saved simply because they “received Christ” or “gave their lives to Christ” or “professed Christ.” They must act upon what God has commanded and God has commanded that everyone be born of the Water and of the Spirit in order to be born again and enter into the Kingdom of God. God has commanded that in order to be born again and added to His Church, one must:
Without these three witnesses, there is no salvation. (ref. 1 John 5:6-8)
The early Christian Church understood faith, the gift of the Spirit, and water baptism in Jesus’ name as One continuous Unified Salvation Experience. (1 John 5:8) if any one of these components were absent then salvation was also absent.
Therefore, it is wrong to tell someone that they are saved simply by “receiving Christ” or believing in Christ. The demons believe and tremble.
