BIBLICAL PROOFS THE DAY OF THE LORD/ 7 YRS TRIBULATION -> THE SUN BECOME DARK ! AND THE DAY OF THE LORD ON THE SAME DAY OR RIGHT AFTER THE RAPTURE !

BIBLICAL PROOFS THE DAY OF THE LORD/ 7 YRS TRIBULATION WILL START WHEN THE EARTH IS COVERED BY DARKNESS/ NO SUNLIGHT-> THE SUN BECOME DARK !

Isa 5:25-30, KJV
25 Therefore is the anger of the Lord kindled against his people, and he hath stretched forth his hand against them, and hath smitten them: and the hills did tremble, and their carcases were torn in the midst of the streets. For all this his anger is not turned away, but his hand is stretched out still.
26 And he will lift up an ensign to the nations from far, and will hiss unto them from the end of the earth: and, behold, they shall come with speed swiftly:
27 None shall be weary nor stumble among them; none shall slumber nor sleep; neither shall the girdle of their loins be loosed, nor the latchet of their shoes be broken:
28 Whose arrows are sharp, and all their bows bent, their horses' hoofs shall be counted like flint, and their wheels like a whirlwind:
29 Their roaring shall be like a lion, they shall roar like young lions: yea, they shall roar, and lay hold of the prey, and shall carry it away safe, and none shall deliver it.
30 And in that day they shall roar against them like the roaring of the sea: and if one look unto the land, behold darkness and sorrow, and the light is darkened in the heavens thereof.

Joel 2:10-11, KJV
10 The earth shall quake before them; the heavens shall tremble: the sun and the moon shall be dark, and the stars shall withdraw their shining:
11 And the Lord shall utter his voice before his army: for his camp is very great: for he is strong that executeth his word: for the day of the Lord is great and very terrible; and who can abide it? 



Acts 2:19-20, KJV

19 And I will shew wonders in heaven above, and signs in the earth beneath; blood, and fire, and vapour of smoke:
20 The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the great and notable day of the Lord come:

Amos 5:18-20, KJV
18 Woe unto you that desire the day of the Lord! to what end is it for you? the day of the Lord is darkness, and not light.
19 As if a man did flee from a lion, and a bear met him; or went into the house, and leaned his hand on the wall, and a serpent bit him.
20 Shall not the day of the Lord be darkness, and not light? even very dark, and no brightness in it?


Amos 8:9-11, KJV
9 And it shall come to pass in that day, saith the Lord God, that I will cause the sun to go down at noon, and I will darken the earth in the clear day: (The tribulation will occur when the day time suddenly become dark like night time, if those areas are day time, if the other part of the world, at night it will be the same), perhaps the world will be darken for several days after the rapture occurs and tribulation starts)
10 And I will turn your feasts into mourning, and all your songs into lamentation; and I will bring up sackcloth upon all loins, and baldness upon every head; and I will make it as the mourning of an only son, and the end thereof as a bitter day.
11 Behold, the days come, saith the Lord God, that I will send a famine in the land, not a famine of bread, nor a thirst for water, but of hearing the words of the Lord:
12 And they shall wander from sea to sea, and from the north even to the east, they shall run to and fro to seek the word of the Lord, and shall not find it. (The Bible/ God's word is hard to find then).



Zeph 1:14-18, KJV
14 The great day of the Lord is near, it is near, and hasteth greatly, even the voice of the day of the Lord: THE MIGHTY MAN SHALL CRY THERE BITTERLY.
15 That day is a day of wrath, a day of trouble and distress, a day of wasteness and desolation, A DAY OF DARKNESS AND GLOOMINESS, A DAY OF CLOUDS AND THICK DARKNESS,
16 A day of the trumpet and alarm against the fenced cities, and against the high towers.
17 And I will bring distress upon men, that they shall walk like blind men, because they have sinned against the Lord: and their blood shall be poured out as dust, and their flesh as the dung.
18 Neither their silver nor their gold shall be able to deliver them in the day of the Lord's wrath; but the whole land shall be devoured by the fire of his jealousy: for he shall make even a speedy riddance of all them that dwell in the land.

The people will know when the tribulation will be, NO LIGHT FROM THE MOON, THE SUN AND THE STARS.

Isa 13: 6-11, KJV
6 Howl ye; for the day of the Lord is at hand; it shall come as a destruction from the Almighty.
7 Therefore shall all hands be faint, and every man's heart shall melt:
8 And they shall be afraid: pangs and sorrows shall take hold of them; they shall be in pain as a woman that travaileth: they shall be amazed one at another; their faces shall be as flames.
9 Behold, the day of the Lord cometh, cruel both with wrath and fierce anger, to lay the land desolate: and he shall destroy the sinners thereof out of it.
10 For the stars of heaven and the constellations thereof shall not give their light: the sun shall be darkened in his going forth, and the moon shall not cause her light to shine.
11 And I will punish the world for their evil, and the wicked for their iniquity; and I will cause the arrogancy of the proud to cease, and will lay low the haughtiness of the terrible.

Joel 3:14-15, KJV
14 Multitudes, multitudes in the valley of decision: for the day of the Lord is near in the valley of decision.
15 THE SUN AND THE MOON SHALL BE DARKENED, AND THE STARS SHALL WITHDRAW THEIR SHINING.

TRIBULATION FOR 7 YRS WON'T HAPPEN UNTIL AFTER THE RAPTURE OF THE CHURCH.
THE ANTICHRIST, THE PEACE TREATY IN DANIEL 9:27 AND THE MARK OF THE BEAST IN REV 13/ MID GREAT TRIBULATION WILL NOT HAPPEN UNTIL AFTER THE RAPTURE OF THE CHURCH.







On Apr 29, 2013 I SAW A RED WAVE FROM THE SUN IT HIT THE EARTH PUTTING OUT POWER OVER ALL THE EARTH ,,THE WHOLE EARTH WAS IN DARKNESS






Are the 3 days of darkness mentioned in the Bible?

Joel talks about the darkness in the whole world before the coming of the great and dreadful day of the LORD, 30 I will show wonders in the heavens and on the earth, blood and fire and billows of smoke. 31 The sun will be turned to darkness and the moon to blood before the coming of the great and dreadful day of the LORD (Joel 2:30-31).

Acts repeats exactly the same quotation in Act.2:19-20.

Exodus describes the three days of darkness that happened in the 9th plague of Egypt, 22 So Moses stretched out his hand toward the sky, and total darkness covered all Egypt for three days. 23 No one could see anyone else or leave his place for three days. Yet all the Israelites had light in the places where they lived. (Ex.10:22-23)... notice the second part of verse 23, Yet all the Israelites had light in the places where they lived!

Jesus Himself describes similar condition will happen just after the Great Tribulation and before the Second Coming of Christ:

29 Immediately after the tribulation of those days shall the sun be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, and the stars shall fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens shall be shaken: 30 And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven: and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory. 31 And he shall send his angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they shall gather together his elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other. (Mat.24:29-31).

These is what will happen as the Bible teaches:

1- Total darkness in the whole world for three days (Ex.10:22).
The darkness will be physical as in the 9th Plague of Egypt... but also spiritual, the worse darkness, a darkness of the presence of God!

1b- This darkness, either physical or spiritual, will happen also in your life and mine, before our death, after our Great Tribulation, and before the Coming of the Lord on the day we die.

2- Without sun and moon, it will be rather could (Jo.2:31)... very could!, physical and spiritual... everybody before death becomes rather very could!.

3- The stars shall fall from heaven (Mat.24:29): Physically and paradoxically, there will be intense heat, the heat of fever with chills, may be for you and me.
At the Garabandal apparitions it is described as having fire on top of us and bellow us that leads to repentance, to confession of sins... spiritually it is the heat of doubts, of our call of conscience that will see at once all the sins we have committed in life.

4- blood and fire and billows of smoke (Jo.2:30)... smoke due to the explosions of the falling stars, with fire and blood all over.

5- No one could see anyone else or leave his place for three days (Ex.10:23)... it may happen to us when we are very sick!... it is time for repentance!...

5- The elect will have no problem, Yet all the Israelites had light in the places where they lived. (Ex.10:23, Mat.24:31). 
 
_________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________
This is   the revelation 3 days of darkness relates with 3 hours of the darkness in the land of Israel before Jesus Christ died on the cross !
Luke 23:44-46, KJV
44 And it was about the sixth hour, and there was a darkness over all the earth until the ninth hour.
45 And the sun was darkened, and the veil of the temple was rent in the midst.
46 And when Jesus had cried with a loud voice, he said, Father, into thy hands I commend my spirit: and having said thus, he gave up the ghost.

There were a series of miracles that took place at Calvary when Jesus was crucified. All of them were in direct connection with His death.

Nature was in sympathy with the crucifixion of the Son of God.

The miraculous darkness that surrounded the cros
s illustrates the depth of His suffering of soul as He felt Himself regarded as sin though sinless (2 Corinthians 5:21). Jesus was bearing the sin of the world. He was the sinless substitute dying in the place of sinners.

In that moment when the Father regarded Him as sin, He experienced the anguish of the deepest suffering. The Son of Man did not cease to be the Son of God.

In the Temple at Jerusalem, darkness filled the Holy of Holies symbolizing the dwelling place of Jehovah. On the mercy seat God's mercy met man's sin and God judged it there. Once a year on the Day of Atonement the High Priest slipped behind the thick veil and sprinkled blood on the mercy seat to make atonement for sin.

THE SCENE

Matthew, Mark and Luke tell us that a sudden, strange mysterious darkness fell over the scene at Calvary. It was darkness at noontime, a darkness in the presence of the sun while the sun was brightly shinning. Under normal conditions it is the light that is antagonistic to darkness. We don't click on darkness to extinguish the light, but light to extinguish the darkness. However, the darkness at noonday at Calvary smothered the sun at high noon! No wonder God caused the earth to tremble.

The great darkness the day Jesus died extended far beyond Jerusalem. It was as if the sun could no longer look upon the terrible effects of the depravity of sin.

Not an eclipse

This mysterious darkness continued for three hours and could not have been the result of an eclipse of the sun. The time of the year was the Passover, which was always observed at the time of the full moon when an eclipse of the sun was impossible. The brightness of the sun would have been most powerful at noon time. A strange supernatural darkness settled down over the world obscuring the sun so it would no longer be seen 12 noon until 3 p.m. (** 3 HOURS)

God the Father made Jesus Christ, His own Son, representative for all of our sins and bore the punishment. Think of every sin you have ever committed and pile them up in one huge mountain. Jesus came down from heaven to represent that mountain of sin and guilt and God poured out His wrath on Him. He paid the price in full once and for all. Jesus invites us to come to Him and to confess our sins one by one and receive forgiveness.

No wonder God hid it from depraved men's eyes! It was Christ in the Holy of Holies on the Mercy Seat of God bearing your punishment. It was my hell, your hell, all the hells of all guilty sinners were burning their fires out on Him. He paid the price for you and me individually and personally.

Jesus had to pay the price alone and tasted our spiritual death alone. Spiritual death is broken communion. Jesus had to taste this broken fellowship with the Father as a punishment for our sins. That is what He was experiencing in those desolate hours when darkness lay upon the earth and upon His soul. Jesus experienced the wrath of God on sin for our behalf. Jesus experienced what a lost sinner feels without having been saved.

The darkness meant the judgment of God against our sins. Jesus went to the cross and bore that punishment so that we would never have to bear it. Our Substitute suffered the most intense agony, indescribable woe, terrible isolation and God forsakenness so we would never have to. Hell came to Calvary. The clearest picture of hell you will ever get without going there yourself is found at the Cross. Jesus descended into the depths of hell and bore its horrors in our stead.

The darkness says to the believer in Jesus Christ that all darkness is gone. Jesus is the Light of the world. The true light now shines in our hearts. There will be no night, no darkness in the city of light.

 TO THOSE WHO ARE LEFT BEHIND AFTER THE RAPTURE OF THE CHURCH , THEY WILL EXPERIENCE 3 DAYS OF DARKNESS, NO SUNLIGHT AT ALL ON EARTH DAYS AND NIGHTS. THE DARKNESS MEANT THE JUDGMENT OF GOD AGAINST THEIR INIQUITIES/ SINS TO ENDURE 7 YRS TRIBULATION !!



___________________________________________________________________________
 Many christians misunderstanding The day of the Lord or The Lord's Day is Sunday, the day when christian attending the church, this is false doctrine.
 This is a good explanation :

http://bibleone.net/ITLD_01.htm
http://ldolphin.org/DayLord.html 
http://jesussavessooncoming.blogspot.com/2012/10/what-is-lords-day.html 
 
Biblical proofs The Day of the Lord (7 yrs tribulation/ Jacob trouble) will happen right after the rapture of the church or ON THE SAME DAY !
Rev 1:10, KJV
I was in the Spirit on the Lord's day (**THE DAY OF THE LORD), and heard behind me a great voice, as of a trumpet, (**THE TRUMPET IS GOD'S VOICE AND WILL BE SOUNDED AT THE RAPTURE OF THE CHURCH SEE REV 4:1, 1 Thes 4:16 and 1 Cor 15:52 ).

The book of Revelation is clearly a prophecy having to do with events occurring during “the Lord’s Day” (1:1, 10). These events begin with Christ’s return for the saved of the present dispensation/ THE RAPTURE OF THE CHURCH, preceding the Tribulation / Jacob trouble/ The day of the Lord.

Okay, now we see that John was being taken up in the spirit, meaning eternity future! He was being shown the things that will happen in the future. At the beginning chapter of Revelation, John the Apostle is giving an overview of what the vision was all about. He is telling us that he was "in the spirit" in other words, the "realm of eternity" where past, present and future all coincide! How do we know this? Because Jesus just declared to him that he is "Alpha and Omega, the first and last…"

What this means is that only through the eternal one Jesus Messiah, was John able to see these things in eternity future! Notice that the "great voice" was as that of a "trumpet."

We know that the day when all the saints are raptured and the ones who died in Christ are resurrected is at the "Last Trump":

1st Corinthians 15:52 In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed.

John is therefore being taken into the spirit or eternity future to that event called "The Lord's Day" when we shall all be changed at the "Last Trump." This is even born out again when John is once again telling us that he was "taken up" with a voice that sounded like a trumpet:

Revelation 4

1 After this I looked, and, behold, a door was opened in heaven: and the first voice which I heard was as it were of a trumpet talking with me; which said, Come up hither, and I will shew thee things which must be hereafter.

2 And immediately I was in the spirit: and, behold, a throne was set in heaven, and one sat on the throne.

Okay so let's notice some common denominators with Revelation 1:10 and Revelation 4:1-2

1.) John heard a voice that was like a trumpet

2.) John was taken up by this voice that sounded like a trumpet

3.) John was in the spirit

4.) John went to heaven where he as shown the future "Lord's Day."

Okay so, let us take a look at all the verses in the Old and New Testament scriptures, (Tanakh & the Brit Chadashah) where "the Day of the Lord" is mentioned:

"The Day of the Lord" or "The Lord's Day"

Isaiah 2:12 For the day of the LORD of hosts shall be upon every one that is proud and lofty, and upon every one that is lifted up; and he shall be brought low:

Isaiah 13:6 Howl ye; for the day of the LORD is at hand; it shall come as a destruction from the Almighty.

Isaiah 13:9 Behold, the day of the LORD cometh, cruel both with wrath and fierce anger, to lay the land desolate: and he shall destroy the sinners thereof out of it.

Jeremiah 46:10 For this is the day of the Lord GOD of hosts, a day of vengeance, that he may avenge him of his adversaries: and the sword shall devour, and it shall be satiate and made drunk with their blood: for the Lord GOD of hosts hath a sacrifice in the north country by the river Euphrates.

Ezekiel 13:5 Ye have not gone up into the gaps, neither made up the hedge for the house of Israel to stand in the battle in the day of the LORD.

Ezekiel 30:3 For the day is near, even the day of the LORD is near, a cloudy day; it shall be the time of the heathen.

Joel 1:15 Alas for the day! for the day of the LORD is at hand, and as a destruction from the Almighty shall it come.

Joel 2:1 Blow ye the trumpet in Zion, and sound an alarm in my holy mountain: let all the inhabitants of the land tremble: for the day of the LORD cometh, for it is nigh at hand;

Joel 2:11 And the LORD shall utter his voice before his army: for his camp is very great: for he is strong that executeth his word: for the day of the LORD is great and very terrible; and who can abide it?

Joel 2:31 The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the great and terrible day of the LORD come.

Joel 3:14 Multitudes, multitudes in the valley of decision: for the day of the LORD is near in the valley of decision.

Amos 5:18 Woe unto you that desire the day of the LORD! to what end is it for you? the day of the LORD is darkness, and not light.

Amos 5:20 Shall not the day of the LORD be darkness, and not light? even very dark, and no brightness in it?

Obadiah 1:15 For the day of the LORD is near upon all the heathen: as thou hast done, it shall be done unto thee: thy reward shall return upon thine own head.

Zephaniah 1:7 Hold thy peace at the presence of the Lord GOD: for the day of the LORD is at hand: for the LORD hath prepared a sacrifice, he hath bid his guests.

Zephaniah 1:14 The great day of the LORD is near, it is near, and hasteth greatly, even the voice of the day of the LORD: the mighty man shall cry there bitterly.

Zechariah 14:1 Behold, the day of the LORD cometh, and thy spoil shall be divided in the midst of thee.

Malachi 4:5 Behold, I will send you Elijah the prophet before the coming of the great and dreadful day of the LORD:

Acts 2:20 The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the great and notable day of the Lord come:

1st Corinthians 5:5 To deliver such an one unto Satan for the destruction of the flesh, that the spirit may be saved in the day of the Lord Jesus.

2nd Corinthians 1:14 As also ye have acknowledged us in part, that we are your rejoicing, even as ye also are our's in the day of the Lord Jesus.

1st Thessalonians 5:2 For yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so cometh as a thief in the night.

2nd Peter 3:10 But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night; in the which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up.

Once again, let's observe some common denominators about this day which is called “The Day of the Lord”

1.) It is a day of destruction
2.) It is a day of darkness
3.) It is a day that is referred to as "great" and "terrible"
4.) It is a day that is referred to as being "near" or "at hand"
5.) It is accompanied by the coming of the Lord
6.) It is accompanied by a trumpet, and great noise
7.) It is accompanied by signs in the heavens
8.) It is accompanied by fire and fervent heat
9.) It is a day of fierce anger, wrath and vengeance

Now, in Revelation 1:10 we have some of these common denominators evident so that we may accurately say that "The Lord's Day" is the same event referred to as "The Day of the Lord" every else in scripture:

1.) It is accompanied by a trumpet, and great noise
2.) It is accompanied by the coming of the Lord
3.) It is accompanied by a cloud or a cloudy day

CONCLUSION : THE DAY OF THE LORD/ 7 YRS TRIBULATION/ JACOB TROUBLE WILL HAPPEN AFTER THE RAPTURE OF THE CHURCH OR RIGHT ON THE SAME DAY, AFTER THE RAPTURE OCCURS . PRE TRIB RAPTURE IS THE ONLY ONE CAN SUPPORT WITH SCRIPTURAL EVIDENCES AND MANY MORE TOPICS , NOT JUST THIS ONE !

Rebuking/ exposing false doctrines, Naming Names? Is that Biblical?

Naming Names? Is that Biblical?

Have you ever personally counted the people the apostle Paul marked by name in the book of 2 Timothy? Try it. Read 2 Timothy (4 chapters) and keep a count of the deceivers Paul identifies and names. You will find 8 men named by name as deceivers in 2 Timothy alone.

“Brethren, be followers together of me, and mark them which walk so as ye have us for an ensample. (For many walk, of whom I have told you often, and now tell you even weeping, that they are the enemies of the cross of Christ: Whose end is destruction, whose God is their belly (selfish interests), and whose glory is in their shame, who mind earthly things.) For our conversation is in heaven; from whence also we look for the Saviour, the Lord Jesus Christ: Who shall change our vile body, that it may be fashioned like unto his glorious body, according to the working whereby he is able even to subdue all things unto himself.” Philippians 3:17-21


Saints, are we so naive as to believe that in our day there are no “enemies of the cross of Christ”? Not only are there Christ’s enemies in our day, the Bible foretold that just before the return of our LORD there would come a great falling away at the hands of these end-time predators who operate in the church world, many who are very famous ministers (2 Thess. 2:3; 1 Tim. 4; 2 Tim. 3-4; 1 Jn. 4:1-6).

There are some essential truths embedded and revealed here in this Bible text that are very important to know concerning these “enemies of the cross of Christ.” Let’s look at some:

They are many (plentiful) not a few - “For many walk...”
Paul repeatedly warned of deceivers - “I have told you often...”
Paul warned with tears - “...now tell you even weeping...”
These men pose as His servants but are actually His enemies - “they are the enemies of the cross of Christ”
These men are going to hell unless they repent - “Whose end is destruction...”
They serve themselves in ministry while supposedly representing Christ - “whose God is their belly (selfish interests)...”
They revel in things they should be ashamed of - “whose glory is in their shame...”
They speak affectionately of movies and other secular interests and tend to things of this fleeting world - “who mind earthly things...”
These “ENEMIES of the cross of Christ” must be marked by the LORD’s remnant no matter what the cost (Rom. 16:17-18). We are mandated to “mark them which cause divisions and offences contrary to the doctrine” of Christ in order to protect the sheep of the LORD’s pasture.
Have you ever personally counted the people the apostle Paul marked in the book of 2 Timothy? Try it. Read 2 Timothy (4 chapters) and keep a count of the deceivers Paul identifies by name. You will find several men named by name as deceivers in 2 Timothy alone. When the Holy Spirit moved upon Paul to foretell that “evil men and seducers shall wax worse and worse, deceiving, and being deceived,” he also led him to name some of those “enemies of the cross” in his and previous days (Phil. 3:17-20). The naming of these men is for an eternal memorial of the just wrath of the Almighty upon those who defame His holy name through deception and false teaching (2 Pet. 2, 3; Jude). When reading the Old Testament especially, we see a Redeemer who will destroy the enemies of His people - because He loves His people (Isa. 49:25; 54:17, etc.). This is the protective love of the LORD. Here is the list of the 8 evil doers the great apostle was inspired to justifiably identify by name in 2 Timothy:

1) Phygellus 1:15
2) Hermogenes 1:15
3) Hymenaeus 2:17
4) Philetus 2:17
5) Jannes 3:8
6) Jambres 3:8
7) Demas 4:10 (apostate)
8) Alexander the coppersmith 4:14
It is interesting to observe here that in the same letter Paul names these names of beguilers, he also states:

“I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith: Henceforth there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous judge, shall give me at that day: and not to me only, but unto all them also that love his appearing.” 2 Timothy 4:7-8

We readily gather here that naming names is an integral part of real New Testament ministry and those who obey can like this apostle of Jesus, be confident that they have completely fulfilled the will of God – “I have finished my course, I have kept the faith: Henceforth there is laid up for me a crown.” In this text, the Holy Ghost says that the LORD is a “righteous judge.” I believe that those who mark deceivers in obedience to divine mandate, are going to be rewarded eternally for such obedience.

We see clearly here that fighting the good fight and finishing our course involves and includes marking deceivers.

Men of God today are mandated to do the same, yet only by the revelation of the Word of God. Marking people is commanded in the Bible (Rom. 16:17-18). If a public leader is teaching people falsehood, he is to be confronted and exposed. The fruit of truly repenting of teaching something that contradicts God’s Word is that the leader will publicly amend his way and doctrine.

Naming names must never be done recklessly or out of a personal vendetta, but only according to the Word and in the Spirit for the glory of God and protection of His beloved people.

We are instructed to rightly divide the Word of truth (2 Tim. 2:15). When Jesus' disciples sought to call down fire from Heaven to destroy those who would not receive the Messiah into their town, the LORD rebuked them, and said, “Ye know not what manner of spirit ye are of. For the Son of man is not come to destroy men's lives, but to save them.” (Lk. 9:55-56) Jesus instructed us to “judge righteous judgment” and in this case He obviously counted the judgment of His disciples to be unrighteous instead of righteous (Jn. 7:24). Though sin also, unbelief of a group of lost people is obviously different than wolves who operate in disguise among His people in sheep's clothing and deceive the sheep of His pasture. Of these the Word tells us that they have “crept in unawares” and “privily (secretly) shall bring in damnable heresies.” (2 Pet. 2:1; Jude 4) The “Great shepherd of the sheep” broods jealously over His beloved people and will smite the wolves who seek to devour His precious sheep (Ps. 23; 91; Matt. 23:37; Heb. 13:20; James 5:5-7). The same LORD who corrected His disciples for having a wrong spirit in trying to call down fire upon unbelievers also instructed those who serve Him to “mark” those who mislead His people and to “earnestly contend for the faith which was once delivered unto the saints” against the “certain men” who are “crept in unawares.” He told us that those men who would mislead His people “were before of old ordained to this condemnation, ungodly men, turning the grace of our God into lasciviousness, and denying the only Lord God, and our Lord Jesus Christ.” (Jude 3-4) Concerning those who would mislead any one of His precious children, Jesus says that “it were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and that he were drowned in the depth of the sea.” (Matt. 18:6)

Those leaders who refuse to expose lies clearly reveal that they are operating in ministry for themselves and not the LORD. They are not protecting God’s sheep and are thereby disobeying the LORD. Identifying falsehoods and at times the people teaching them, is a protective measure to keep God’s people from being spoiled/deceived (Col. 1:27-2:8). By the way, this Bible topic like all others, does not hinge upon what you or I think should be done - BUT UPON WHAT THE LORD HAS CLEARLY TOLD US. So it is time to die to the self life and all of its emotional affinities and sediments and just DO the Word.

“For what if some did not believe? shall their unbelief make the faith of God without effect? God forbid: yea, let God be true, but every man a liar...” Romans 3:3-4

Note “Let God be true, but every man (including ourselves) a liar... ”

What makes people get upset when names of deceivers are mentioned? It’s biblical, so what are they stirred about? Are the scalded dogs barking? Are those who have made idols of these mere sinful men covering for them? What’s at stake?

Saints, naming names is a divine mandate. Naming names has its place in God’s economy. If one has a problem with that, let him argue with Him. It’s time to catch up with truth and begin to walk in it – seasoned with the protective love of Christ.

Taking offense because certain ministries name the false doctrine in the church world or even the names of false leaders just may be a matter of the heart. Perhaps we need to look within and beg the LORD to search us out and lead us in His way everlasting (Ps 139:23-24).

What does God say about this?

Who are we truly worshipping? Whom do we fear? Who do we seek to please? Upon whom are our affections set? If a person gets upset because their favorite limelight leader or pet pastor or prophet is identified by name as false, perhaps that person has an unnatural soul tie to that leader and his ministry. Is this not idolatry of the heart?

“Woe to the idol shepherd...” Zechariah 11:17

Friend, God’s kingdom is all about Jesus Christ and His eternal, unchanging Word, not any mere man or group of men (Mk. 13:31).

“I am the LORD: that is my name: and my glory will I not give to another, neither my praise to graven images.” Isaiah 42:8

Why Some Don’t Want to Expose

Could it be self-preservation? What is it that is behind the refusal of some to dispense God’s truth after He has clearly instructed us to do such? And on top of that, why is it that some who fear men and therefore refuse to identify and expose the false, exude an air of spiritual pride as if they are being “loving” by allowing people to remain under the dark shadow of false teaching while hiding the doctors of deception who espouse these falsehoods? How perverse a picture is this and how very absurd for some to believe they are being “loving” by hiding this soul-saving information!

Could it be that these are cloaking pride and self-preservation behind a pseudo “love”? God’s pure love rejoices in and speaks the truth – (Prov. 12:17; 1 Cor. 13:6; Eph. 4:15). When God’s love is truly made perfect in us, we will speak His truth in His love.

“He that speaketh truth showeth forth righteousness: but a false witness deceit.” Proverbs 12:17

Is it not personal and evil pride that is at the foundation of such thinking and inaction, cloaking itself in a false “love” that is not according to the constitution (Word, Counsel) of the One who is love?

Jesus told us He is the “truth” and the Word tells us that “God is love.” (Jn. 14:6; 1 Jn. 4:8, 16) These two attributes are equally a part of the divine character and an imbalance is the result of His people not acknowledging both. God’s method is to get to the root of our iniquities and purge them with His “mercy and truth.” Study Jeremiah 1:10 and Proverbs 16:6.

Do we realize what is at stake here?

“For many deceivers are entered into the world, who confess not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh. This is a deceiver and an antichrist. Look to yourselves, that we lose not those things which we have wrought, but that we receive a full reward. Whosoever transgresseth, and abideth not in the doctrine of Christ, hath not God. He that abideth in the doctrine of Christ, he hath both the Father and the Son. If there come any unto you, and bring not this doctrine, receive him not into your house, neither bid him God speed: For he that biddeth him God speed is partaker of his evil deeds.” 2 John 7-11

In case you were still wondering if what a person believes is important to their eternal destination, wonder no more. Let these sobering words of Holy Scripture grip your soul deeply:

“Whosoever transgresseth, and abideth remains) not in the doctrine of Christ, hath not God.” 2 John 9

“Let that therefore abide (remain) in you, which ye have heard from the beginning. If that which ye have heard from the beginning shall remain in you, ye also shall continue in the Son, and in the Father.” 1 John 2:24

Weakness, Disobedience & Self-love
Masking Itself as Tolerance

“Thou shalt not hate thy brother in thine heart: thou shalt in any wise rebuke thy neighbour, and not suffer sin upon him.” Leviticus 19:17

Here the LORD equates hating one’s brother to the neglect of rebuking and allowing sin to prosper in his life. The Bible tells us that “the wages of sin is death” and so to allow sin to prosper in our brethren is to hate them (Rom. 6:23). “Open rebuke is better than secret love” right? (Prov. 27:5-6) We should admonish, correct, and at times even rebuke each other for espousing unbiblical teachings and/or living in sin.

“Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom; teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord.” Colossians 3:16

In Colossians 3:16 we are told to:

“Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly”
Handle the Word of God “in all wisdom”
“teach and admonish one another”
“singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord”
Hatred withholds truth that would otherwise set someone free as only the truth can do when communicated and adhered to (Jn. 8:31-32, 36). This applies not only to sin but also to loving our neighbor enough to wisely and lovingly attempt to guard him with truth from being deceived and drawn away from pure devotion to the One who died to save us.

Some of us act as if it is a Christian virtue to tolerate any and everything that comes down the pike – “every wind of doctrine” (Eph. 4:14). We mask our selfish preservation and self-idolatry behind a false “love” that has no reconciliation with Bible truth.

In his book Man to Man, Richard Halverson wrote:

“There are times when tolerance is not a virtue, but weakness. There is certainly no virtue in being tolerant if one holds no convictions, and it is not uncommon for the man who believes nothing, who speaks the most of tolerance, to be the most intolerant of one who really believes something. Jesus’ absolute intolerance of sin and error was in no way inconsistent with His love for men, even the sinner or the liar.” (p. 59)

Martin Luther said:

“I was born to fight devils and factions. It is my business to remove obstructions, to cut down thorns, to fill up quagmires, and to open and make straight paths. But if I must have some failing, let me rather speak the truth with too great severity than once to act the hypocrite and conceal the truth.”

When teachings that flood the church world would bring God’s people into spiritual deception, are speared and exposed, God will bless.


“Real valor consists not in being insensible to danger, but in being prompt to confront and disarm it.” ~ Sir Walter Scott

God rewards those who vigilantly expose, when He leads them to do so. The LORD can only use us inasmuch as we have His Word in our hearts. Thank God for the modern-day Jaels (Judges 5:24). Thank God for the valiant Phinehas’ of today who spear the sin of false doctrine. These are the resolute defenders of God’s glory who decisively deal with the evil corruption of the divine image in the minds and hearts of His people.

When lies are exposed with divine truth, God will bless (Num. 25; Judges 5:24-31).

When God’s love is truly made perfect in us, we will speak His truth with boldness and kindness (Eph. 4:15).

There is a “Difference”

As we discern we are then responsible to expose our findings to others (1 Tim. 4:6, 16).

“And they shall teach my people the difference between the holy and profane, and cause them to discern between the unclean and the clean. And in controversy they shall stand in judgment; and they shall judge it according to my judgments: and they shall keep my laws and my statutes in all mine assemblies; and they shall hallow my sabbaths.” Ezekiel 44:23-24

Discernment is not condemnation. Discernment is simply the ability and act of distinguishing between holy and unholy, true and false.

Jesus Christ condemned hypocritical judgment, and commanded “righteous judgment.” (Matt. 7:1-5; Jn. 7:24)

Speaking of those who follow Him, the LORD tells us here in Ezekiel 44:23 that “They shall teach my people the difference” – to discern between “holy and profane” and “unclean and clean.” The love of God which abides in true under-shepherds, is protective and trains others to discern and be guarded from the mischief intended upon them by the evil one who works through deceivers disguised in sheep’s clothing and their teachings.

Naivety is not a virtue in God’s kingdom, it is a curse.

Our LORD instructed us to pray for and obtain discernment and 1 John tells us to test every spirit and to not blindly receive and believe every person who comes in the name of Jesus because “many (not a few) false prophets are gone out among you.” (Rev. 3:18; 1 Jn. 4:1; Matt. 24:11)

The Bible speaks of the overseer as one who must “Take care of the church of God.” (1 Tim. 3:5) According to Proverbs 27:23, the overseer of the sheep of God’s pasture must be diligent to know the state of his flocks and to look well (oversee closely with the jealous love of God) to his herds.

“Be thou diligent to know the state of thy flocks, and look well to thy herds.” Proverbs 27:23

He should diligently look out over the horizon for wolves coming in to devour the LORD’s sheep with their deadly lies. All doctrinal error must be met with the full force of divine truth by those who love Him. Divine truth is the safety of the believer in abiding in Christ to the end (Prov. 30:5).

Discernment is simply the dividing of truth from error, relying fully upon God’s Word, which is the final authority for all matters concerning the faith once delivered to the saints (Mk. 13:31; Jn. 10:35; 2 Tim. 3:16; Jude 3-4). When the believer studies to show himself approved unto God, he will then be able to “rightly” divide “the word of truth” from error (2 Tim. 2:15).

In the Scriptures, the Holy Ghost divides between “the spirit of truth, and the spirit of error.” One of the earmarks of the “spirit of antichrist” and the foretold “many false prophets” is that “the world heareth them.” Those under the “spirit of antichrist” do not endure sound doctrine, they cannot hear it – instead they rebel. These love darkness rather than light. See John 3:19-21; 8:47; 2 Timothy 4:2-4; 1 John 4:1-6. These are those leaders and followers who purposely affirm instead of rebuking their sinful nature (2 Tim. 4:2-4). We must discern those deceivers who affirm people in their sins by not declaring God’s holiness, the biblical definition of sin, and the essential nature of repentance.

When Solomon became king, he was asked what he desired from the LORD.

“In Gibeon the LORD appeared to Solomon in a dream by night: and God said, Ask what I shall give thee…(Solomon answered) Give therefore thy servant an understanding heart to judge thy people, that I may discern between good and bad: for who is able to judge this thy so great a people? And the speech pleased the Lord, that Solomon had asked this thing.” 1 Kings 3:5, 9-10

Solomon wisely chose to covet from the LORD the ability to “discern between good and bad.” The Bible records that this request “pleased the Lord.”

Shouldn’t discernment be what we covet from our LORD in this late hour where we have been told to watch closely for deceivers? - “Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils; Speaking lies in hypocrisy…” (1 Tim. 4:1-2)

Discernment is sought out and then taught to others by leaders who are true to the LORD (Ezek. 44:23). They are ever diligent to feed and guard “the flock of God” from the spiritual rabies of the promised wolves who “lie in wait to deceive.” (1 Pet. 5; Eph. 4: 14)

Check out the state of the people of God in Isaiah’s day, when wolf packs had hijacked the positions of authority, designed to be occupied by men who authentically feared God.

“The Lord GOD which gathereth the outcasts of Israel saith, Yet will I gather others to him, beside those that are gathered unto him. All ye beasts of the field, come to devour, yea, all ye beasts in the forest. His watchmen are blind: they are all ignorant, they are all dumb dogs, they cannot bark; sleeping, lying down, loving to slumber.” Isaiah 56:8-10

Do we think that our day is altogether different from Isaiah’s when the leaders of the people were self-serving, “blind… ignorant…dumb dogs…sleeping, lying down” and “loving to slumber”?

At the helm, insidiously guiding the Church into deep darkness, are men who have only an outward form or formula of godliness, yet are not submitted under the Lordship of Jesus Christ.

“Wolves” and “beasts of the field” must be marked so that “his people, and the sheep of his pasture” can be warned, be wise to them and able to stay out of harm’s way (Matt. 7:15; Ps. 100:3).

“Warn Them from Me”

“So thou, O son of man, I have set thee a watchman unto the house of Israel; therefore thou shalt hear the word at my mouth, and warn them from me.” Ezekiel 33:7

God told Israel that its leaders “are all dumb dogs, they cannot bark; sleeping, lying down, loving to slumber.” (Isa. 56:10)

A watchdog instinctively sounds the alarm by barking. What should be instinctive is now asleep in the hearts of those in leadership who have slipped away from their first love. Because of this, they do not warn the people of God of the many dangers that are lurking and being openly taught in the church world.

The Ancient of Days told His prophet Jeremiah:

“I have set thee for a tower and a fortress among my people, that thou mayest know and try (test) their way.” Jeremiah 6:27

“Like People, Like Priest”

“And there shall be, like people, like priest: and I will punish them for their ways, and reward them their doings.” Hosea 4:9

It appears that the influence of priest and people works both ways. Although the leaders will bear the greatest responsibility, the influence seems to work in both directions. Leaders and non-leaders within the realm of professing Christendom will be rewarded according to their adherence to the clear will of God (Hos. 4:9-11; Matt. 15:14; Prov. 29:12; Isa. 9:16, 24:1-11).

To the one who has never heard a balanced diet of God’s Word, including love, judgment, discernment and correction, the person who exposes may automatically be viewed as judgmental. Someone who exposes is seen by regular churchgoers, who have been conditioned under a soft and incomplete false gospel, as judgmental, divisive, etc. This is only because their pastors are doing NOTHING to protect them from the MANY deceptions that abound in the church world. This is sad. Who is really at fault?

According to the biblical record, the defense of the faith should be a regular part of New Testament Christianity. Paul stated:

“I am set for the defence of the gospel.” Philippians 1:17

Or, perhaps they have heard some who “expose” and realize that they themselves (the exposers) are needing to expose their own self-righteous, pride-filled Pharisaical hearts before seeking to get the speck out of another’s eye (Matt. 7:1-6). Nonetheless, the defense of the faith is a biblical, essential and a regular part of New Testament Christianity, which all believers should be as actively engaged in as Paul was.

Due to his ceaseless intercessory praying for the LORD’s people, James, the brother of our LORD and human author of the book of James, was called “The Just” and “The safeguard of the people.” As a martyr, James died at the hands of antichrist religious zealots, but not before he set the example of diligently seeking to protect God’s flock as every servant-leader is called to do – to be “set for the defence of the gospel.” (Phil. 1:17)

Paul Marked Alexander the Coppersmith

“Alexander the coppersmith did me much evil: the Lord reward him according to his works: Of whom be thou ware also; for he hath greatly withstood our words. At my first answer no man stood with me, but all men forsook me: I pray God that it may not be laid to their charge.” 2 Timothy 4:14-16

Paul told the brethren to “be thou ware” of “Alexander the coppersmith” who “did me much evil.” Note here that the apostle Paul warned these believers to beware of someone he named and who had done him “much evil.” Today when someone dares to do as Paul did in this instance, they are accused of being “judgmental.” Instead, we tolerate what God never intended us to. Paul marked several men by name in his two letters to Timothy alone.

The apostle warned the believers of those who worked against the true work of the Gospel.

Beloved, you may be being tempted in your thinking to pander to the sinful nature of men, instead of leading them to the Fountain of Living Waters by showing them, by divine strength, grace and Word, their need to understand what He stated. Now is the time to submit all to the LORD and to accept that we are called to suffer as He did (Phil. 1:29; 1 Pet. 4:1, 2, 12). We are not our own, but bought with the very price of His blood and should be willing to say with Christ, “Father, if thou be willing, remove this cup from me: nevertheless not my will, but thine, be done.” (Lk. 22:42)

Our own will must be laid down and His given total reign. This is what He has called us to beloved.

“It is not a difficult matter to learn what it means to delight ourselves in the LORD. It is to live so as to please Him, to honor everything we find in His Word, to do everything the way He would like to have it done, and for Him.” ~ S. Maxwell Coder

Defending the faith is a standard and vital part of the Christian life. The faith must be defended by its adherents. We must die to self-isms and obey the One we claim to serve.

Friend, when you create your own Universe, you can then decide what the rules are, but until then, those who claim to know Christ are to submit our lives to Him fully and simply follow His clear directions.

We must mature and realize that exposing false teaching and teachers has always been and will always be an integral, essential and regular occupation of New Testament Christianity and the responsibility of Christ’s disciples of all ages.

The stern warning for THOSE WHO WORSHIP AND BOW DOWN OTHER GODS,

This is the stern warning for THOSE WHO WORSHIP AND BOW DOWN OTHER GODS, their own neighbour (men and women), the devil in different forms, the graven image (statues, pictures etc)...that's not just about other religions, but including catholics who admit themselves believe YHVH the same God in Jesus Christ but they worship Mary, angels, saints, pope and idols, bow down in front of the statues and dead saints/people.
OPEN YOUR EYES, DO NOT MAKE ANY EXCUSE WITH THE CHURCH MAN MADE TRADITIONS ..

Exo 20:3-5, KJV
3 Thou shalt have no other gods before me.
4 Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth.
5 Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them: for I the Lord thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me;

Exo 23:24, KJV
Thou shalt not bow down to their gods, nor serve them, nor do after their works: but thou shalt utterly overthrow them, and quite break down their images.

Isa 40:18-25, KJV
18 To whom then will ye liken God? or what likeness will ye compare unto him?
19 The workman melteth a graven image, and the goldsmith spreadeth it over with gold, and casteth silver chains.
20 He that is so impoverished that he hath no oblation chooseth a tree that will not rot; he seeketh unto him a cunning workman to prepare a graven image, that shall not be moved.
21 Have ye not known? have ye not heard? hath it not been told you from the beginning? have ye not understood from the foundations of the earth?
22 It is he that sitteth upon the circle of the earth, and the inhabitants thereof are as grasshoppers; that stretcheth out the heavens as a curtain, and spreadeth them out as a tent to dwell in:
23 That bringeth the princes to nothing; he maketh the judges of the earth as vanity.
24 Yea, they shall not be planted; yea, they shall not be sown: yea, their stock shall not take root in the earth: and he shall also blow upon them, and they shall wither, and the whirlwind shall take them away as stubble.
25 To whom then will ye liken me, or shall I be equal? saith the Holy One.

Acts 17:29, KJV
Forasmuch then as we are the offspring of God, we ought not to think that the Godhead is like unto gold, or silver, or stone, graven by art and man's device.

I've never met a Roman Catholic who is born again, only ex-Roman Catholics. So to use the words Christian, or brothers and sisters for people who pray to Mary , images and dead people is wrong.

Acts 17:29, KJV
Forasmuch then as we are the offspring of God, we ought not to think that the Godhead is like unto gold, or silver, or stone, graven by art and man's device

Psalm 135 :15-18, KJV
15 The idols of the heathen are silver and gold, the work of men's hands.
16 They have mouths, but they speak not; eyes have they, but they see not;
17 They have ears, but they hear not; neither is there any breath in their mouths.
18 They that make them are like unto them: so is every one that trusteth in them.

Deut 27:15, KJV
Cursed be the man that maketh any graven or molten image, an abomination unto the Lord, the work of the hands of the craftsman, and putteth it in a secret place. And all the people shall answer and say, Amen.

Procession in public where people carrying big statue or some pictures that blind people bowing down and mostly is connected with veneration of babylonian queen of heaven under name Mary or some catholic saints billions of idol worshipers worshiping creation instead Creator thru mystyc occult rituals thru different sacraments and money pay this or pay that catholioc priests asking and preforming show for spiritual dead and blind members of babylonian roman catholicism ..


I hope these verses can be an eye opening for Mary worshipper (Catholic) WHO BELIEVE Mary is the mother of God, THAT'S A FALSE DOCTRINE. IN THE REALITY she's ONLY the mother of Jesus Christ while Jesus still walking on earth in human body.

God->Jesus in his deity DOES NOT HAVE THE HEAVENLY MOTHER/ THE MOTHER OF GOD OR THE MOTHER WHO EQUALLY AS HEAVENLY FATHER/ YHWH GOD, YES, THAT'S TRUE EARTHLY MOTHER / MARY )
MARY HERSELF KNOW SHE NEED THE LORD AND THE SAVIOR, JESUS CHRIST AND SHE IS GOD'S SERVANT !

JESUS CHRIST AS SON OF GOD, AND HE IS INDEED GOD-YHWH HIMSELF IN HUMAN FORM/ THE WORD OF GOD/ THE IMAGE OF INVISIBLE GOD SEE COL 1:15, WHO DOES NOT HAS A MOTHER AND A FATHER, HE IS THE BEGINNING AND THE END/ ALPHA AND OMEGA -> REV 1:11 , REV 22:13 !
WHILE MARY JESUS EARTHLY MOTHER DOES NOT HAS THE BEGINNING AND THE END, SHE IS A HUMAN LIKE THE REST ALL OF US, SHE IS NOT GODDESS OR EQUALLY AS GOD/ THE CREATOR, SHE IS ONLY GOD'S CREATION LIKE ALL OF US !

Heb 7: 1-3, KJV
1 For this Melchisedec, king of Salem, priest of the most high God, who met Abraham returning from the slaughter of the kings, and blessed him; (**AS THE LORD AND SAVIOR, NOW JESUS IS THE MELCHISEDEC, THE KING OF SALEM/ THE KING OF RIGHTEOUSNESS)
2 To whom also Abraham gave a tenth part of all; first being by interpretation King of righteousness, and after that also King of Salem, which is, King of peace; (**THE KING OF SALEM OR THE MELCHISEDEC WHOM ABRAHAM MET WAS THE SYMBOLIZE OF JESUS CHRIST, NOW JESUS CHRIST IS THE TRUE MELCHIZEDEC/ HIGH PRIEST)
3 Without father, without mother, without descent, having neither beginning of days, nor end of life; but made like unto the Son of God; abideth a priest continually. (**JESUS IS THE HIGH PRIEST / SON OF GOD OR GOD HIMSELF HAS NO MOTHER AND FATHER OR PARENTS AS OTHER GODS, ..GOD THE FATHER IS JESUS CHRIST HIMSELF, GOD THE FATHER IS WHEN WE SEE/ UNDERSTAND IN HEAVENLY SPIRITUALLY, GOD THE FATHER AND SON OF GOD/ JESUS CHRIST ARE ONE, SEE JOHN 10:30 "I and my Father are one.")

Luke 1:42-47, KJV
42 And she spake out with a loud voice, and said, Blessed art thou among women, and blessed is the fruit of thy womb.
43 And whence is this to me, that THE MOTHER OF MY LORD (**IT DOES NOT SAY MARY IS THE MOTHER OF GOD LIKE CATHOLIC BELIEVES, BUT SHE SAID SHE'S THE MOTHER OF MY LORD, WHAT MARY SAID MY LORD INDICATES SHE WORSHIP GOD AS HER CREATOR/ SAVIOR/ LORD ) should come to me?
44 For, lo, as soon as the voice of thy salutation sounded in mine ears, the babe leaped in my womb for joy.
45 And blessed is she that believed: for there shall be a performance of those things which were told her from the Lord.
46 And Mary said, My soul doth magnify the Lord,
47 AND MY SPIRIT HATH REJOICED IN GOD MY SAVIOUR. (**IF MARY IS THE MOTHER OF GOD, SHE NEVER SAY GOD IS MY SAVIOUR, YES SHE STILL NEEDS THE LORD AND SAVIOUR WHO SAVE HER FROM HER SINS, SHE'S STILL A HUMAN BEING WHO HAS THE SINFUL NATURE LIKE ALL OF US)

"The Bible nowhere indicates that Mary can hear our prayers or that she can mediate for us with God. Jesus is our only advocate and mediator in heaven (1 Timothy 2:5). If offered worship, adoration, or prayers, Mary would say the same as the angels: “Worship God!” (see Revelation 19:10; 22:9.) Mary herself sets the example for us, directing her worship, adoration, and praise to God alone: “My soul glorifies the Lord and my spirit rejoices in God my Savior, for He has been mindful of the humble state of His servant. From now on all generations will call me blessed, for the Mighty One has done great things for me — holy is His name” (Luke 1:46-49)."

TAKE HEED TO MARY WORSHIPPERS OR CATHOLICS, THIS IS A STERN WARNING FROM GOD !



Romans 1: 17-23, KJV

17 For therein is the righteousness of God revealed from faith to faith: as it is written, The just shall live by FAITH. (**NO EXCUSE CATHOLIC WORSHIP GOD BUT USING THE STATUES/ ICONS AS THEIR IMAGE, GOD IS THE SPIRIT WE MUST WORSHIP GOD WITH THE SPIRIT AND THE TRUTH, NO WHERE IN THE BIBLE IS WRITTEN WORSHIPPING GOD AND TO REMEMBER GOD WITH/ THROUGH IMAGES/ STATUES/ ICONS, IT IS FOOLISH FOR DOING SUCH THINGS LIKE THAT)
18 For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness;
19 Because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath shewed it unto them.
20 For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse:(**NO EXCUSE WORSHIPPING THE IMAGES/ STATUES, IN THE REALITY THERE IS THE TRIUNE GOD/ GODHEAD, THE CREATOR WHO MAKE ALL THINGS, WE SHOULD LIVE BY FAITH)
21 Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened.
22 Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools,
23 And changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things.
24 Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves:(SEXUAL IMMORALITY)
25 WHO CHANGED THE TRUTH OF GOD INTO A LIE, AND WORSHIPPED AND SERVED THE CREATURE MORE THAN THE CREATOR, (** WORSHIPING THE CREATURE SUCH AS STATUES, ICONS, WOMAN (INCLUDING
INCLUDING JESUS EARTHLY MOTHER MARY/ CATHOLIC MARY) AND MAN, TREES, MOON, SUN, STARS, ANIMALS, EARTH, PLANET, FALSE GODS/ SATAN MORE THAN ONE THE TRUE ONLY GOD-YHWH) WHO IS BLESSED FOR EVER. AMEN.

Does Catholicism worship pagan idols. Can Satan, formerly known as Lucifer, be found within the bowels of
The Roman Catholic Church under the vatican with other pagan deities? You decide!






I quoted above in Acts 17:29 and Rom 1:20 , they mention "GODHEAD". What is GODHEAD ? It is THE TRINITY GOD ->> GOD THE FATHER, JESUS CHRIST THE SON AND THE HOLY SPIRIT, CATHOLIC MARY IS NOT INCLUDING !


Col 2:8-10, KJV
8 Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ.
9 For in him dwelleth all the fulness of the Godhead bodily.
10 And ye are complete in him, which is the head of all principality and power:

http://www.gotquestions.org/Godhead.html
Question: "What is the Godhead?"

Answer: The term "Godhead" is found three times in the King James Version: Acts 17:29; Romans 1:20; Colossians 2:9. Three different Greek words are used, but each one means “divinity.” It is important for us to understand from the outset that God exists in three Persons. The concept of the Godhead is that God is one yet God is three. How can this be?

While the word “trinity” is not found in the Scriptures, the concept is found there from beginning to end. There is no question about it—the doctrine of the Trinity is divinely revealed biblical truth: our one God exists in three Persons. That is not to say that the authors of Scripture understood it clearly. When Peter, John, and the other disciples first saw Jesus they did not say, “Oh look, there goes God in flesh, the second Person of the holy Trinity.” Yet as they heard Him claim to be the revelation of the Father with the prerogatives of deity, and as they watched Him perform the supernatural works of deity, they came to the convinced persuasion that He was God the Son.

Additionally, they probably gave very little thought at first to the Holy Spirit being the third Person of the eternal Godhead. But when the events of the day of Pentecost had ended, it was obvious to them that the power they had witnessed working in them and through them was not their own. It was the power of God. The Spirit who indwelled them was none other than God Himself. So then, led by that same divine Spirit, they revealed to us in their writings the Trinity of the eternal God.

Explanation of the triune Godhead
What then does it mean that God exists as the Trinity? It is a basic principle of our biblical faith that there is only one God. “Hear, O Israel! The LORD our God, the LORD is one!” (Deuteronomy 6:4). The unity of the Godhead cannot be questioned. God does not consist of parts. He is one. But Scripture reveals that there are, in that one divine essence, three eternal distinctions. Those distinctions seem best described as Persons, known as the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. All three have identical attributes, however, and therefore they are one—not merely one in mind and purpose, but one in substance. To possess all the same attributes is to be one in essential nature. The three Persons of the Godhead possess identical attributes. They are one in substance and one in essence, and therefore they are one God.

Evidence for the Triune Godhead
While the primary emphasis of the Old Testament is on the unity of God, the indications of His triune nature are clearly seen even there. We need not read very far to find the first one: “In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth” (Genesis 1:1). Elohim, the Hebrew name for God in this verse, is plural. That may not prove the Trinity, but it definitely points to more than one Person in the Godhead. There was no other logical reason to choose a plural name. As such, we are not surprised, then, to hear Him say a short time later, “Let us make man in our image” (Genesis 1:26, emphasis added). The plural pronouns could not refer to angels because they were never associated with God in His creative activity. Consequently, more than one divine Person was clearly involved. The plural pronouns make no sense otherwise (Genesis 3:22; Genesis 11:7). John reiterates this truth when, speaking of Jesus, he declares, “Through him all things were made; without him nothing was made that has been made” (John 1:3). Clearly, Jesus was present and involved in the act of creation, yet Genesis 1:1 says that “God created the heavens and the earth.”

The undeniable biblical testimony to the Trinity is simply that all three Persons are referred to as divine. First, the Father is called God. He is referred to as “God the Father” (Galatians 1:1), “God our Father” (Galatians 1:3; Ephesians 1:2), and “the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ” (Ephesians 1:3). His deity is unquestioned. But the Son is likewise referred to as God. He possesses the attributes of deity such as eternality, immutability, omnipotence, omniscience, and omnipresence. He bears the names of deity such as Jehovah, Lord, Immanuel, and the Word. He even permitted Thomas to call Him “my Lord and my God” (John 20:28). He exercises the prerogatives of deity such as forgiving sins, raising the dead, and judging all men. And He accepts worship reserved only for God.

Jesus claimed that He deserved the very same reverence that was reserved for God the Father. He was not a liar or a lunatic, so He must have been who He claimed to be—God the Son, equal with the Father and worthy of the same honor as the Father. The Father Himself addressed His Son as God: “But about the Son He says, ‘Your throne, O God, will last forever and ever’” (Hebrews 1:8). Paul further explains that “in Him dwells all the fullness of the Godhead bodily” (Colossians 2:9). The Greek word translated “godhead” is theotēs which means “divinity,” so the totality of divinity (God) is in Jesus. The prologue to John’s gospel tells us one reason Christ came to earth: to make the Father known, to reveal God to men (John 1:18). We can know more of what God is like by examining the Person of Jesus Christ. He was God in flesh. As we explore Scripture and seek to discover who God is, we cannot neglect the earthly life of Jesus Christ. He is God the Son.

But the Holy Spirit is also part of the Godhead. His name is “the Spirit of God” (Genesis 1:2). He, too, possesses the attributes of deity and performs the works of deity. While He is the Spirit who proceeds from the Father (John 15:26), He is at the same time called “the Spirit of Christ” (Romans 8:9). He is coequal with both the Father and the Son. The Apostle Peter clearly viewed Him as God when he said to Ananias, “Why has Satan filled your heart to lie to the Holy Spirit? . . . You have not lied to men, but to God” (Acts 5:3-4). If the Father, the Son, and the Spirit all bear the names of God, possess the attributes of God, and perform the works of God, then there is no alternative but to acknowledge that our one God exists in three Persons.

The Ministry of the Triune Godhead
Scripture links these three Persons of the Godhead together so closely in so many divine activities that it would be foolish to deny that any one of them is God. Observe some of those activities:

• Creating the World. All three were involved in creation: the Father (Genesis 1:1); the Son (John 1:3, 10; Colossians 1:16); and the Spirit (Genesis 1:2, Psalm 104:30). If all three created, then God the Creator must exist in three Persons.

• Sending the Son. All three members of the Trinity were active in the incarnation. When Mary questioned the angel about the possibility of a virgin birth, the angel answered her, “The Holy Spirit will come upon you, and the power of the Most High will overshadow you. So the holy one to be born will be called the Son of God” (Luke 1:35).


The power of the Father, ministered through the agency of the Spirit, resulted in the birth of the Son into the world. This close association in the birth of the Savior is further indication of their oneness.

• Identifying the Messiah. At precisely the proper moment, Jesus Christ was revealed to Israel as her Messiah. John the Baptist was the chosen instrument and the act of baptism was the chosen means (Matthew 3:16-17). As the Spirit came upon the Son, the Father’s voice was heard from heaven expressing His approval. It was another powerful testimony to the eternal triune Godhead.

• Providing Redemption. Two central passages bring the three members of the Godhead together in providing for man’s eternal salvation. “How much more, then, will the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit offered himself unblemished to God, cleanse our consciences from acts that lead to death, so that we may serve the living God!” (Hebrews 9:14). It was the offering of the Son to the Father by the power of the Spirit. The Apostle Peter taught, furthermore, that God the Father chose us to salvation, God the Son paid for it by shedding His blood, and God the Spirit set us apart unto the obedience of faith (1 Peter 1:1-2). Without each Person of the Godhead doing His part, we would remain in our sins.

• Proclaiming Salvation. In the early years of the church, God did some spectacular things to verify the gospel message which the apostles were preaching. The writer to the Hebrews tells us, “How shall we escape if we neglect so great a salvation? After it was at the first spoken through the Lord, it was confirmed to us by those who heard, God also bearing witness with them, both by signs and wonders and by various miracles and by gifts of the Holy Spirit according to His own will” (Hebrews 2:3-4). It was the same message that was first spoken by the Son Himself. When the apostles proclaimed it, the Father bore witness to its truthfulness by bestowing miraculous gifts through the Spirit. It was not only a powerful witness to the truth of the message, but another demonstration of the triune God at work.

• Sending the Spirit. The three Persons of the Trinity are so interwoven in sending the Spirit into the world that it is difficult to distinguish between them. In one passage it is stated that the Father would send the Spirit in Christ’s name and that He would testify concerning Christ (John 14:26). In another it is said that the Son would send Him from the Father (John 15:26). In yet another, the Father sends Him and calls Him the Spirit of His Son (Galatians 4:6). What a picture of unity—such perfect unity that the actions of one are considered to be the actions of the other. The Spirit proceeds from both the Father and the Son. But all three are vitally involved in His coming.

• Indwelling Believers. Jesus taught His disciples that both He and His Father would make their home with them (John 14:23). But their indwelling would be in the Person of the Comforter, the Spirit of truth (John 14:16-17). As the Spirit of both the Father and the Son, His indwelling is the indwelling of the Godhead. That would not be possible unless the three are one.

• Baptizing Believers. In our Lord’s commission to His disciples He said, “Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit” (Matthew 28:19). The unity of the Godhead is declared by combining them in one “name” (singular). Yet the distinctiveness of the Persons is maintained by listing them separately. It is another link in the long chain of evidence that the Father, the Son, and the Spirit are one God.

• Entering God’s Presence. All three members of the Godhead are intimately involved in the believer’s access into the presence of God. Speaking of Christ, the Apostle Paul taught, “For through him we both have access to the Father by one Spirit” (Ephesians 2:18). Both Jews and Gentiles can approach the Father through the merits of the Son with the help of the Spirit.

• Blessing Believers. In Paul’s final remarks to the Corinthian Christians, he linked the three members of the Godhead together in a beautiful benediction: “The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit, be with you all” (2 Corinthians 13:14). Unless the three are one, eternally and equally supreme, there would be little reason to put them together on an equal basis like this in a divine blessing. The apostle certainly considered them to be one.

The reality of the triune Godhead cannot be denied. Those outside of Christ may object to it, but their objections arise primarily because they seek to understand the Creator in terms of the creature, to see God as merely a bigger and better version of man when in reality He is a totally different kind of being, an infinite being whom our finite minds cannot fully comprehend. We believe in the Godhead not because we understand it, but because God has revealed it. It is not incidental or unimportant. It is the very essence of His being, the way He is. And it is necessary for us to know it if we hope to grow in our understanding of His nature and perfections.
