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.

Have You Done Enough In The Fight Against Sin?

Brainwashed

Have you ever watched cartoons with your children? Have ever spent some time analyzing what messages are being sent through television, movies, videos and special programs?

Children spend more time with their televisions and digital media devices than they do listening and sharing with their parents. (Shame on the parents)

Have you noticed that almost every action cartoon like “The Spectacular Spider Man” or “The Justice League” or “Dragon Ball” are all violent shows shrouded in some fabricated sense of social righteousness?

Have you ever wondered how these type programs affect young minds that have not yet fully developed their Christian Moral Consciousness or godly Character? These things twist the truth and send a message that conflict can be resolved with violence.

Are you aware that young minds and hearts are easier to train, indoctrinate and control?

Why do you think that the world media entities and militaries are purposely targeting the young and undeveloped minds? Could it be to modify their morals and change their beliefs and behaviors so as to make them more easily susceptible to direct orders, subliminal suggestions and mass brainwashing that serves the purpose of the State/Nation/Satan?

Why are we so accustomed to violence these days and not abhorred or sickened by the viciousness and ungodly ways that lives are being destroyed and folks are being killed, murdered, raped and tortured at an ever increasing rate? Could it be that we have been conditioned through various television shows and news broadcasts not to feel disgust at the satanic horrors and vile spiritual filth (homosexuality, fornication, lewdness, drunkenness, murder, treachery and licentiousness) that surround us everyday? Could it be that we have had our sense of right and wrong twisted or redefined by the god of this world so that we no longer experience “righteous indignation” and a genuine fear of God?

The brainwashing has already begun and the evidence is in the condition of our world, our children, ourselves and our lack of righteous indignation at open homosexuality, the legalization of sexual immorality and the vicious and murderous assault of Satan on God’s Eternal Laws, Christ (God’s living WORD) and Christians everywhere.

Have you noticed that things aren’t as good as some pretend that they are?

Freedom of religion has become an intolerable nuisance to the world, especially if that Faith opposes unrighteousness, homosexuality or any other sexual immorality?

Hebrews 12 Resist Sin

It Wasn’t Always this Way!

Wake Up!

Rise Up!

It is not time for sleeping. The battle has begun.

Fight the Good Fight of Faith.

Resist the Devil!

We have not yet resisted unto death. So fight harder, speak louder and more frequently and stand strong in the Lord!

“You have not yet resisted to the point of shedding blood in your striving against sin.” (Hebrews 12:4)

God Can’t Use A Coward Soldier!

Keep Looking Up!

Are You A Happy Fool?

Brainwashed Soren Kierkeggard

Some folks want the power, worldly honor, respect and prestige that sometimes come with the preaching profession. Some people want to preach so bad that they will sell their souls and their integrity for the chance to preach and/or pastor.

Some will say and do anything for the privilege of preaching from a pulpit. They will refuse to teach God’s Holy and Eternal Commandments and, instead, tell funny and entertaining stories that only appear to have a Christian theme. Many have abandoned God’s “One True Way” – if they ever knew the Way – and have adopted and professed the world’s moral/politically correct agenda as The Way. They have redefined; modified and perverted (Twisted) God’s Word to fit their own sinful lifestyles and fabricated social morality. They are not agents of God nor were they sent from God but they are hired servants – slaves of institutional religion and religious philosophies – ministers of Satan.

I have experienced several pastors and preachers who have shrunk away from God’s Eternal Standard of Truth and are now preaching and teaching “church/religious” doctrines that are foreign to Christ and His Apostles. They have redefined God’s gender roles in the Church to fit their ideologies of sexual equality and fairness in the workplace. (((This Is Not of God and Cannot Be Made to Apply to His Church.)))

They have encouraged fornication and adultery in the church by sugar-coating God’s Eternal Moral Commandments and tolerating and celebrating those who violate God’s Law. (((They have baby showers in the church for single mothers. Where are the fathers? And some have openly gay choir directors, musicians and homosexual members working in the church.))) Some Pastors have a reputation of being gay themselves and some habitually participate in sexual immorality. They have spewed sweet-sounding rhetoric along with platitudes and fairy tales to convince dying souls that they are saved with only a “sinner’s prayer” or a profession of faith. They lie to folks that God’s Love Will Cover their sins without any real repentance or obedience.

Many pastors and preachers have been told the truth. I know this because I have told them along with many other “Truth Teachers.”  But they refuse to believe and thus condemn themselves. Many intentionally lie to themselves and others about God’s Command to be Believe the Gospel of the Kingdom of God, Repent, be Buried with Christ by Baptism into water in His name and receive the Holy Spirit of Promise.

It greatly disturbs me to think that it is so important for some folks to be accepted as a preacher that they would “simplify” the salvation command (Acts 2:23) into simply “believing.”  They have put countless souls on the broad path of error and in danger of Hellfire.

It sickens me to think that there are so-called pastors/preachers who are only motivated by popularity, greed, self-fulfillment, lust, power, honor and accolades. Some even skillfully and convincingly play the loving, poor, suffering, humble country preacher role so as to hide their true nature, character and financial agenda. As long as they can draw a crowd to listen to them, they are happy. As long as they are still being called as a paid guest speaker, they are content. As long as they can occupy the office of Pastor, they are considered successful. As long as they can get paid for working minimum hours and serving in a plush contemporary environment where their words carry weight and power, they are happy. As long as they can tickle folk’s ears, encourage them without rebuking their sins and get rich in the process, they are ecstatic.

Don't Judge Me

I wonder how happy they will be at the judgment seat of God when He says “Depart from me you lawless, wicked and disobedient sinners. I don’t know you and you never knew me.”

I wonder how happy they will be at the judgment seat of God when God rejects them just as they rejected His Eternal and unchanging Law and His Eternal Way of Salvation in Christ.

I wonder how happy they will be at the judgment seat of God when they discover that their 50 plus years of service in an institutional church was not in service to God but to Satan.

I wonder how happy some of those jokers will be at the judgment seat of God when they discover that their accolades, awards, degrees and time served were all for the devil and not for the glory of God.

I wonder how happy some of those Doctors of Divinity and Doctors of Religious Education will be when they discover at the Judgment seat of God that they are actually ignorant of God’s Word, Way and Will and that their credentials mean nothing to God.

I wonder how happy will those who followed these lying preacher be when they lift their eyes in hell having known the Truth but rejecting it.

How Happy Are You?

I Am Nothing But God Is Everything

1 CORINTHIANS 3 6

“Who then is Paul, and who is Apollos, but ministers through whom you believed, as the Lord gave to each one? I planted, Apollos watered, but God gave the increase. So then neither he who plants is anything, nor he who waters, but God who gives the increase. Now he who plants and he who waters are one, and each one will receive his own reward according to his own labor.”

“For we are God’s fellow workers; you are God’s field, you are God’s building. According to the grace of God which was given to me, as a wise master builder I have laid the foundation, and another builds on it. But let each one take heed how he builds on it. For no other foundation can anyone lay than that which is laid, which is of  YEHOWSHUA HA’ MASHIACH (Jesus Christ).”  (1 Corinthians 3:5-11)

bar47

The one who plants the Word and the one who waters the Word are both employed by the same God and working for the same purpose. They are ONE!

One’s labor involves the tilling of the soil; the turning over of hard ground. This labor involves a lot of pulling through tough soil with sharp spade-like tools that dig into the earth to loosen it and soften it; preparing it to receive the seed.

Another one’s labor involves cultivating, refining, educating, i.e. watering the seed that was planted so that it might mature and grow. This labor involves different skills than the one who tilled and planted.

However, both are needed to serve and benefit the seed (The Word). But it is neither he who plants nor he who waters that is important in this process. But it is God who empowers the labors of both to gives forth a harvest unto the Kingdom of God.

It Is Only Through The Grace Of God That Both Laborers Serve and It is God Who Grants The Power of Increase.

All Glory Belong To God!

A CRUMB FROM THE MASTER’S TABLE

The Master's Table

“How will they preach unless they are sent?” – Romans 10:15

“And I will give you shepherds according to mine heart, which shall feed you with knowledge and understanding.” – Jeremiah 3:15

bar47

Seminaries don’t make pastors. Churches don’t make pastors. Denominations don’t make pastors. Preaching an emotionally rousing sermon doesn’t make one God’s preacher. And an ordination service or ministerial license doesn’t make one God’s man-servant.

God makes and sends Pastors after His own heart; those who are faithful to Him and His ways and who will give the people divine knowledge and understanding according to His revealed Truth. (Jeremiah 3:15)

Are you being led by God’s sent servant or a hired counterfeit?

Umm?

A Crumb From The Master’s Table

The Master's Table

“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)

Today’s Sabbath Message / My Personal Observations / A Pastoral Commentary

Salvation without Christ

I have been trying to put into words what has been very obvious to me over the years regarding traditional churches and congregations but have found it very difficult to express. So please forgive the lack of polish or sophistication of the following observations:

bar47

It is my observation and personal experience that many churches (maybe unconsciously) have placed themselves as the judge and jury of who is good enough to Pastor and/or preach in their pulpits. They have developed elaborate and politically driven organizations known as Ecclesiastical Governing Bodies to discern, discriminate, set benchmarks, examine and decide for them who should be their Pastor/Leader/Shepherd. But shouldn’t that be God’s decision?

It is my experience and observation that those who are making such life altering decisions are not saved according to the Holy Scriptures nor are they influenced by the Holy Spirit but by church politics, human traditions, arbitrary rules and clandestine motives shrouded in out-of-context scripture verses –totally corrupt, perverse and out of the will of God.

Maybe this is why the Christian Church is in the condition it is today – lacking genuine moral integrity and Divine Truth.

They tell a story (fable) of salvation that sounds good but is a lie from the depths of hell that neither saves nor transforms but entertains, fascinates, inspires, blinds and deceives its listeners.

For the time has come and now is when men will not endure sound doctrine; but wanting to have their ears tickled, they have accumulate for themselves teachers in accordance to their own desires, doctrines, traditions and beliefs and have turned away from the Truth and have turned to myths… (ref. 2 Tim. 4:3-4)

THIS MAY HURT A LITTLE

truth hurts

by Bishop O.W. Prince

When we want someone to represent us in court and communicate our concerns, we want the best educated and gifted lawyer that our money can afford.

When we send our children to school, we expect them to learn how to speak and write correctly using the rules of grammar.

Our own African-American heroes like Dr. Martin Luther King, Medgar Evers and Malcolm X all spoke and wrote using the rules of grammar correctly, colorfully and effectively.

So why are we tolerating and sometimes celebrating the broken grammar of some of our rappers, gospel singers, entertainers, public speakers and preachers?

Is it because we are afraid of the intellectuals or is it because we are most comfortable remaining in ignorance?

When I was growing up, the public speakers and church leaders were held to a high standard of grammatical excellence and intellectualism whereas they were held up as examples of perseverance and effective communication that we should aspire to emulate. But who are we following now?

Are ignorance, vulgarity, cursing, broken grammar and ineffective communication skills the legacy that we wish to pass on to the next generation?

I personally have grimaced in shock and disappointment as I listened attentively to a noted Reverend Doctor Bishop who butchered the English language in the presence of school children and adults. Are our intellectual and academic benchmarks so low as to bestow the sublime credentials of Reverend Doctor and Bishop upon those who cannot conjugate a verb or make a verb and subject agree?

There is nothing shameful about illiteracy as long as it isn’t a condition of choice but of circumstance. However, in today’s society, there are just too many educated fools running around with titles but no substance. There are far too many credentials without credibility.

“I MAY BE WRONG BUT I DOUBT IT”

2012  owpPSE Cookinecutter
I have a problem with preachers who sugarcoat, sweeten up and water down the Word of God for the sake of getting along with folks. They dilute the Word of God so much that their message doesn’t resemble anything that God sent them to say – that is if God sent them at all.

Such fence straddling preachers are of no use to God and only create hell-hound followers. They harm the credibility and integrity of the True Faith.

Their theatrical and religious performances on the church’s pulpit stage invokes applause, loud cheering with shout of “hallelujah” and “praise the Lord” and other excited utterances. However, most of these utterances are rehearsed and emotionally induced and have nothing to do with the genuine move of God’s Holy Spirit attesting to the Truth Of God’s Divine Revelation through the preached Word. No! Most of these utterances are insincere and serve only to relay to the performing preacher that his performance is very entertaining and well pleasing to the listening audience.

Some preachers—not all of us—but some of us have become addicted to the congregational vocal feedback. Some of us preach to receive a response. We use our sing-song voice and our whoop in order to get a rise out of the congregation.

The focus of some ministries—not all of them—is not on convicting sinners and saving souls by the saving Word of God but on the verbal aesthetics of the preaching personality. Preaching is only preaching if it doesn’t hurt anyone’s feelings or challenge anyone’s religious organization or question their salvation.

Allow me to inform some and remind others that we ought always to preach the preaching that the Preacher bids us to preach, if indeed we have the Preacher dwelling within us.

“I MAY BE WRONG BUT I DOUBT IT.” Preachers who water down and otherwise modify the Word of God for the sake of popularity and acceptance, will never see the kingdom of God.
