TODAY’S SABBATH DAY MESSAGE / “Setting Things Straight”

Seminary Books_orig1

Have you noticed that the Christian Church has changed to imitate the protocols and methods of the world? More and more churches are seeking Pastors with Masters and Doctorate degrees. They are more concerned about the prospective pastor’s credentials than they are about his morals and his salvation. Some even set the pastor’s salary according to what level of education he has achieved. This is worldly and has no foundation in Holy Scripture. THIS IS NOT OF GOD!

Education is good. We should get as much education as we can afford or that is afforded to us. The more tools and skills that we have to use for the work of the kingdom of God the better. BUT DON’T GET IT TWISTED! We cannot qualify or certify to be God’s Preacher and Servant through Bible Colleges or Seminaries. God is not impressed with your diplomas, degrees, certificates or any such man contrived prerequisites.

  • You must first have heard and believed the TRUE Gospel of Salvation through Yehowshua HaMashiach – Jesus the Christ). ( Mark 1:15)
  • You must be born-again of the water and of the Spirit according to the scriptures. (John 3:3-7 and Acts 2:38)
  • You must spend time in the presence of GOD and with the Messiah – God’s Living Word. 
  • You must wait to be sent by God and not by man’s institutions of religious organizations. (Romans 10:15)
  • Then you must go forth in the assurance and power of the Holy Ghost – being led by the Spirit and not by the flesh. (Acts 20:28)

These five points do not take the place of an education but place education in its rightful place.

REPENT!

Isaiah 1:10-17 Complete Jewish Bible (CJB)

10 Hear what Adonai says,
you rulers of S’dom!
Listen to God’s Torah,
you people of ‘Amora!

11 “Why are all those sacrifices
offered to me?” asks Adonai.
“I’m fed up with burnt offerings of rams
and the fat of fattened animals!
I get no pleasure from the blood
of bulls, lambs and goats!
12 Yes, you come to appear in my presence;
but who asked you to do this,
to trample through my courtyards?
13 Stop bringing worthless grain offerings!
They are like disgusting incense to me!
Rosh-Hodesh, Shabbat, calling convocations —
I can’t stand evil together with your assemblies!
14 Everything in me hates your Rosh-Hodesh
and your festivals;
they are a burden to me —
I’m tired of putting up with them!

15 “When you spread out your hands,
I will hide my eyes from you;
no matter how much you pray,
I won’t be listening;
because your hands are covered with blood.

16 “Wash yourselves clean!
Get your evil deeds out of my sight!
Stop doing evil, 17 learn to do good!
Seek justice, relieve the oppressed,
defend orphans, plead for the widow.

Acts 2:37-39 Complete Jewish Bible (CJB)

37 On hearing this, they were stung in their hearts; and they said to Kefa and the other emissaries, “Brothers, what should we do?” 38 Kefa answered them, “Turn from sin, return to God, and each of you be immersed on the authority of Yeshua the Messiah into forgiveness of your sins, and you will receive the gift of the Ruach HaKodesh! 39 For the promise is for you, for your children, and for those far away — as many as Adonai our God may call!”

Repent and Baptized

“The offering acceptable to God is not money or things but total and selfless obedience to His Eternal Word.” ~ Bishop O.W. Prince

For You do not delight in sacrifice, otherwise I would give it; You are not pleased with burnt offering. The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit; A broken and a contrite heart, O God, You will not despise.
(Psalm 51:17)

THE BLOOD

The blood-of-jesus trangif

“Just because your Faith and church views God’s Commandments as burdensome, strict and non-relenting and therefore obsolete, doesn’t mean that we all feel that way about our God’s commandments.  Some of us find them a delight and we find joy in keeping them. (Psalms 119:46-48)

Just because you are frustrated and angry over the many self-imposed restrictions in your religion, and just because you are so intense to the point where you feel that anyone who doesn’t see the scriptures or practice worship or observe a lot of dos and don’ts as you do is going to hell, doesn’t mean that I am going to hell.  Remember the Pharisees and the Sadducees observed a lot of dos and don’ts also.

Just because you belittle me and dismiss me and cast my name out as evil doesn’t mean that you are more holy and righteous than anyone else.

Just because you summarily dismiss me as wicked, false, damned and lost doesn’t make me wicked, false, damned and lost.

There is a Judge who knows the hearts of men and judges Righteously and True. And before His Throne and on His Right Hand is our Advocate, pleading His own precious Blood for our salvation so that The Supreme Judge of judges will not see my imperfections and sins nor hear your accusations against me but receive the TESTIMONY of The Blood Of His SON and our LORD Jesus CHRIST.”

“Therefore I stand dumb before the Judgment Seat Of YHWH and I choose to know nothing save Christ and Him Crucified.”

May God Have Mercy On Us All and May The Blood of Christ JESUS hide my wretched soul.”

~ Bishop O.W. Prince

A CRUMB FROM THE MASTER’S TABLE / “IT IS A BLESSING TO BE PERSECUTED”

The Master's Table

“Blessed are those who have been persecuted for the sake of righteousness, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. Blessed are you when people insult you and persecute you, and falsely say all kinds of evil against you because of Me. Rejoice and be glad, for your reward in heaven is great; for in the same way they persecuted the prophets who were before you.”  ~ Matthew 5:10-12

bar47

Have you ever noticed that God’s Way and his choices in leadership and messengers aren’t subject to man’s scrutiny or assessment? God doesn’t subject Himself or His decisions to the wisdom of man. GOD Is GOD ALONE!

Often God’s chosen and sent emissaries are rejected by the world and its systems of organized religions and Christian churches. Often God’s true servants must stand alone, preach alone and endure a very lonely life.

Look at Jesus’ earthly minister. He was not supported or endorsed by any mainstream religious sect or organization (denomination). To the contrary, because he preached differently from the recognized Jewish religious organizations and was not sanctioned by them nor did he submit himself or his message to them for their examination and approval, he was ostracized, ridiculed and marked for destruction and death by them. 

He is despised and rejected by men,
A Man of sorrows and acquainted with grief.
And we hid, as it were, our faces from Him;
He was despised, and we did not esteem Him.

~ Isaiah 53:3-5 ~

If you aren’t a part of the good old boys network and if you don’t play politics and kiss butt and pay monetary tributes and give praises to certain persons who deem themselves entitled to decide your fate in ministry, you will be ostracized, ridiculed, despised and rejected by men and marked for destruction and death by them.

You will often stand alone! But be encouraged because you are not alone. Rejoice! You are in the divine fraternity of God-sent messengers who were also rejected and despised by men but remembered by God.

Glory To God!

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!

Just Because…

 

churches collage

In today’s modern, sophisticated and highly academically driven systems of the Christian Faith, many folks believe that if they join one of the thousands of churches that call themselves Christian, that their sins are forgiven and that they are saved from Hell and condemnation.

THIS IS NOT TRUE!

Just because a group or organization calls themselves Christian doesn’t mean that the Spirit or the Word of Christ resides there.

Just because a group or organization sounds religious and tells Bible stories and builds buildings that they call churches and worship centers and preaches tantalizing principles of faith doesn’t meant that they are of God.

Just because a preacher has a master’s or doctorate degree in theology doesn’t mean that he or she knows anything about God or salvation.

Just because someone is an effective speaker with skills of verbal persuasion and has an ordination of licensing ceremony and is given a certificate, a robe and a Bible doesn’t make them God’s man or God’s Preacher.

Just because someone is hired by a congregation or sanctioned by a religious organization as a Pastor doesn’t mean that they are a Pastor.

Just because someone carries a title or is honored by the world as a Bishop, Pastor, Evangelist, Teacher, Elder, Deacon, Minister or any other ecclesiastical office doesn’t mean that they are sent by God into those offices of service.

Many people are occupying positions and carrying titles of Christian leadership for the purpose of self-fulfillment, pride, personal ambition and personal gain. They are agents of Satan sent to deceive, kill, steal and destroy.

They anesthetize (numb and sedate) us with soothing affirming words rendering us unconscious to the reality of our damnation.

Thus, many of us are going to Hell shouting “hallelujah and praise the Lord” because we think that we were saved when we are not. Our faith was in the church that we joined and not in the Word of God nor in His Commands.
