Kick The Wolves Out Of The Church!

Wolf in Sheep's Clothing.

The Bible teaches that pastors are to keep the church pure, not allow the wolves to infiltrate and spread their heresies to the children and baby Christians behind their backs!

Jude 1:3-19 “Beloved, when I gave all diligence to write unto you of the common salvation, it was needful for me to write unto you, and exhort you that ye should earnestly contend for the faith which was once delivered unto the saints. For there are certain men crept in unawares, who 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. I will therefore put you in remembrance, though ye once knew this, how that the Lord, having saved the people out of the land of Egypt, afterward destroyed them that believed not. And the angels which kept not their first estate, but left their own habitation, he hath reserved in everlasting chains under darkness unto the judgment of the great day. Even as Sodom and Gomorrha, and the cities about them in like manner, giving themselves over to fornication, and going after strange flesh, are set forth for an example, suffering the vengeance of eternal fire. Likewise also these filthy dreamers defile the flesh, despise dominion, and speak evil of dignities. Yet Michael the archangel, when contending with the devil he disputed about the body of Moses, durst not bring against him a railing accusation, but said, The Lord rebuke thee. But these speak evil of those things which they know not: but what they know naturally, as brute beasts, in those things they corrupt themselves. Woe unto them! for they have gone in the way of Cain, and ran greedily after the error of Balaam for reward, and perished in the gainsaying of Core. These are spots in your feasts of charity, when they feast with you, feeding themselves without fear: clouds they are without water, carried about of winds; trees whose fruit withereth, without fruit, twice dead, plucked up by the roots; Raging waves of the sea, foaming out their own shame; wandering stars, to whom is reserved the blackness of darkness for ever. And Enoch also, the seventh from Adam, prophesied of these, saying, Behold, the Lord cometh with ten thousands of his saints, To execute judgment upon all, and to convince all that are ungodly among them of all their ungodly deeds which they have ungodly committed, and of all their hard speeches which ungodly sinners have spoken against him. These are murmurers, complainers, walking after their own lusts; and their mouth speaketh great swelling words, having men’s persons in admiration because of advantage. But, beloved, remember ye the words which were spoken before of the apostles of our Lord Jesus Christ; How that they told you there should be mockers in the last time, who should walk after their own ungodly lusts. These be they who separate themselves, sensual, having not the Spirit.”

2 John 1:9-11 “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.”

Matthew 7:15 “Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.”


Matthew 10:16 “Behold, I send you forth as sheep in the midst of wolves: be ye therefore wise as serpents, and harmless as doves.”


Acts 20:29 “For I know this, that after my departing shall grievous wolves enter in among you, not sparing the flock.”

What is a wolf?

The Bible shows that a wolf is someone who brings in heresies that will cause people to go to Hell like: repentance is not required for salvation, there are many paths to God, Jesus is not God, and any other heresy that distorts salvation.

They turn the grace of God into lasciviousness by saying that a saved person can sin all they want to, because grace covers it.

I have taught against all of these heresies in different posts on this blog. The links link to the posts that refute theses heresies.

These heresies are called “damnable heresies”, because they can cause people to think they are saved when they are not, and then they end up in Hell.

Wolves are also always in some kind of really bad sin like adultery, fraud, witchcraft, and they can even be led to murder their followers as was Jim Jones.

Matthew 7:15-24 “Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves. Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles? Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit. A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit. Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire. Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them. Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven. Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.”

These people are deadly! That is why the Bible says not to even allow them into your house!

The word “house” in 2 John 1:9-11 can also mean church because it can be figurative (Strong’s Exhaustive Concordance of the Bible with Hebrew and Greek Dictionaries #3614 and #3624 In the Greek. #3624 actually says temple).

This means you stop these wolves at the door and don’t let them even attend! They are not there to learn the truth, they are only there to devour the sheep!

 Nowhere in the Bible does it say that church services are supposed to be completely public. Church is first of all for the saved. The lost are only to be allowed in if they are truly seeking to learn, if you discover that they are there to infiltrate you stop them at the door!

That is how heresies have been infiltrated into the church, because pastors refuse to keep the church pure and kick the wolves out.

They may not allow them to officially teach, but since these wolves are even allowed to attend, they can easily draw children and weak Christians into their false doctrines just through conversation.

After the first and second admonition you are supposed to kick them out! Don’t even let them attend!

Titus 3:10-11 “A man that is an heretick after the first and second admonition reject; Knowing that he that is such is subverted, and sinneth, being condemned of himself.”

The Jesuits and Masons are really good at subtly infiltrating.

They start out just drawing people away subtly through conversation. Then a new pastor comes in and thinks this guy is good, and then the guy can start teaching and even become a pastor in time.

He then begins to get the younger, weaker Christians to help him kick out the older and stronger Christians.

Then this wolf gets caught in some horrendous crime like fraud, or child molestation and the whole church is severely damaged!

This is what happened in the First Baptist Church of Hammond Indiana.

Somehow a wolf, who I really suspect was a Jesuit, was able to marry the Pastor’s daughter, then after the Pastor died, this wolf became the Pastor.

He first started to attack the King James Bible, which that church had always stood strong on, Then he started subtilty changing other fundamentals of that church, then he got a lot of young men in positions around him and started pushing out the older Christians, Then this wolf was caught molesting a teenage girl! The guy is now in prison where he belongs, but the church was severely damaged, and the Name of Christ suffered great reproach.

I read this in a blog post at https://www.jackhyles.com/schaap-first-baptist-church.htm and another one at https://www.jackhyles.com/schaap-traitor.htm by some people who were members of that church and then left when the scandal happened.

This church was almost destroyed, because they were not vigilant enough to keep the wolves out!

Years before the first Pastor died, the church youth group that I was a member of would take a trip every Summer to this church’s Youth Conference. I first heard this wolf preach at the Youth Conference 21 years ago when I was 16 years old. I suspected even at that time that he might be a Jesuit wolf because he had preached a sermon about America being Mystery Babylon Spoken of in Revelation 17 and 18. Even at that young age I had already been studying about the Jesuits for 3 years and I knew that the teaching that America was Mystery Babylon was started by the Jesuits to hinder the preaching of the truth that Mystery Babylon is actually the Roman Catholic Church.

However, I never said anything to anyone, because I was young, and because I knew that the Ecumenical Movement had caused many people to believe that false teaching and others, even if they were not Jesuits. So I was hoping that this guy was just taught wrong and was not an actual wolf.

However, with everything that he did, I now believe that he is a Jesuit wolf.

In churches that use other Bible versions besides the King James a wolf will just start attacking the authority and validity of the Bible in general.

In many Baptist churches it is so bad today that Jesuits and Masons are masquerading as pastors, teachers and deacons and are spreading their damnable heresies, and destroying innocent lives.

And yes, many Jesuits can get married!

There are 3 different levels of Jesuits.

The priests are at the top. They are the only ones who are forbidden to marry. However, even they can marry if the Jesuit General commands them too, in order for them to better infiltrate a church.

Even a Nun can marry if the Pope commands her too. One of Mohammad’s wives was actually a Catholic Nun, who the Pope commanded to marry Mohammad. Then her brother helped Mohammad interpret his visions and write the Quran. So the Catholic church actually helped found Islam, because they wanted to use Mohammad and his followers as an army to capture Jerusalem. They did capture Jerusalem, but decided to keep it for themselves instead of handing it over to the Pope. So now the Catholic church fights against Islam. As you can see the Catholic church infiltrates all religions, not just true churches. (You can learn more about this by reading “The Prophet” by Alberto Rivera published by Chick Publications.)

However, there are the second level of Jesuits that are professionals like Psychologists, doctors, lawyers, accountants, etc. These can get married and can infiltrate churches as teachers, deacons, and even Pastors!

Then you have the 3rd level of Jesuits, that are laborers such as electricians, cooks, factory workers etc. These can also get married and can infiltrate churches as teachers, deacons, and even Pastors! (See the book: “The Secret History of the Jesuits” Published by Chick Publications.)

Therefore, it is possible to have generations of Jesuits infiltrated into the true church!

We must know what we believe and why or the wolves will come in and tear us apart!

Christians need to start obeying 1 Timothy 2:15 “Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.”

Pastors must purify their churches by kicking the wolves out of the church and keeping them out, or they will have blood on their hands!

2 John 1:9-11 “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.”

Learn How to Spot the Wolves!

To learn more about how to spot wolves in your church please read the Alberto series of books and the book “The Secret History of the Jesuits published by Chick Publications.

If you learn how to spot a Jesuit, you will be able to spot any wolf. The Jesuits are the most subtle and most dangerous of all wolves. They have been around for almost 500 years and were started by a military General, who was a master at espionage.

Jesuits go through years of training learning how to infiltrate, take over, and destroy true churches.

They take an oath to kill anyone who does not agree with them either openly with the sword or secretly by the poison cup.

You can read that oath on the Government of Australia’s website at https://nla.gov.au/nla.obj-2478231803/view?partId=nla.obj-2478232434

Many Christians in churches could be getting cancer and other health problems, because Jesuits in their churches are secretly poisoning them.

Alberto Rivera was a Jesuit Priest who truly got saved and completely renounced the Catholic church. He preached against the Catholic church and the Jesuits for many years. The Jesuits kept trying to kill him, but were unable to for a long time. Then a “friend” of his claimed that he too had gotten saved and left the Jesuits. This guy kept begging him to come to his house to eat. Alberto was leery of him, so he kept kindly declining the invitation. The guy kept asking, and Alberto began to feel bad about not trusting him. He went and ate at the guy’s house, and became very sick and had to go to the hospital. The doctors found that he had been poisoned. His “friend” then disappeared. About a year later Alberto was diagnosed with Colon cancer, and ended up dying. Before he died, Alberto said that Jesuits will use poisons with retro viruses in them to cause cancer, and that this is what had happened to him.

Christians must learn how to spot the wolves, and keep them out of their churches! Both souls and lives depend on it!

Churches Need to be More Careful About Membership.

Churches should never allow anyone to become a member of their church without having the person meet with the Pastor and deacons first to make sure of what they believe, and that they are not living a sinful lifestyle. And they should be denied membership if it is found that they believe any damnable heresies, or are living a sinful lifestyle, and refuse to repent after being shown the truth in Scripture.

New Christians should not be allowed to teach!

A big problem I see in churches is that they will get anyone to teach a Sunday School class. As soon as someone makes a profession of faith the church will put them teaching the kids!

That is completely irresponsible!

This just opens the door wide to wolves!

No one should ever be allowed to teach at all in the church until they have gone through proper discipleship training and the Pastor is sure that they will not be teaching any damnable heresies. Furthermore, teaching should only be done by church members who are in good standing, unless the person is a visitor who the Pastor knows well.

Churches should not allow people to serve at all who are not living right.

In addition, If someone is in open sin they should never be allowed to serve in the church! Not even to sing in the choir or serve food to the kids! Because the kids will look up to them and think they are a good person and then be led astray or even hurt by them. They should be under church discipline until they repent!

Churches must become wise as serpents and stop opening the doors wide for the wolves to come in and devour the sheep!

You’re Religious But Will You Go To Heaven?

Heaven

Not All Religious People Will Go to Heaven.

Jesus said in Matthew 7:21-23 “Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven. Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.”

This passage of Scripture shows that someone could even cast out devils and do miracles in Jesus’ Name, and still not go to heaven.

In order to go to heaven we must do the Father’s will.

What is the Father’s will?

John 6:40 “And this is the will of him that sent me, that every one which seeth the Son, and believeth on him, may have everlasting life: and I will raise him up at the last day.”

John 3:16″ For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.”

It is the Father’s will that we believe in Jesus, if we do not believe in Jesus, we do not go to heaven. No matter how religious we are. Hell is full of religious people.

How do we believe in Jesus?

The Bible says in Romans 10:9 “That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.”

To believe in Jesus does not mean to only be fully persuaded in your mind of who Jesus is and what He did.

The word “believe” in Romans 10:9 in the Strong’s Exhaustive Concordance roots backwards twice to a word, which means “obey” (the word believe is Strong’s # 4100 in the Greek, which comes from # 4102, which comes from # 3982, which means obey and also yield).

This shows that true faith is rooted in obedience.

In order to fulfill the requirements of salvation in Romans 10:9 you must:

 Be fully persuaded in your mind of who Jesus Christ is (God in the flesh John 1:1-3, John 1:14, John 3:16, and 1 John 5:7; Born of a virgin Matthew 1:18-25 and Luke 1:30-35) and what He has done (died on a cross 1 Corinthians 15:3-4 and arose from the dead in a flesh and bone body Luke 24:39), and your heart must change from wanting to sin to wanting to obey God. This is an immediate change of your heart (meaning desire and will).

It means that you yield (submit) your will to God’s will.

That is repentance of sins, and it is required for you to receive forgiveness of your sins, and go to heaven.

Luke 13:5 “I tell you, Nay: but, except ye repent, ye shall all likewise perish.”

God does not want you to go to Hell! He wants you to get saved!

Ezekiel 18:23 “Have I any pleasure at all that the wicked should die? saith the Lord GOD: and not that he should return from his ways, and live?”

Ezekiel 18:23 agrees with 2 Peter 3:9 “The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.”

In addition, Matthew 9:13 says “But go ye and learn what that meaneth, I will have mercy, and not sacrifice: for I am not come to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance.”

Your actions may not change immediately after you get saved, but you are going to be so convicted over your sin, when you mess up, that you are going to cry out to God to help you to change.

This is the only way you can go to heaven.

Acts 4:12 “Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.”

If you have never believed in Jesus and repented of your sins, please do it now. Here is a prayer that you can pray word for word or use as a guide to tell God that you believe the gospel, repent of your sins and ask Him to forgive you of your sins.

The prayer does not save you.

The decision to believe in Jesus and repent of your sins is what saves you.

The prayer just helps you tell God that you have made these decisions.

Here is the prayer:

“Dear God, I know that I am a sinner and I believe that Jesus Christ died on the cross and bodily arose from the dead 3 days later to pay for my sins. I repent of my sins. Please forgive me of my sins and help me to obey you and live for you for now on. Please take me to heaven when my life on this earth is over. Thank you for saving me. In Christ Jesus name, Amen.”

Get saved now. Don’t wait! Many people are dying right now, even some young and healthy people are dying from the Corona virus. You never know when you will die. God does not promise you another minute.

The Bible says after death you are judged!

Hebrews 9:27 “And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment:”

In addition, you will always remember this time when you could have been saved by simply believing in Jesus and repenting of your sins, but refused too, and that will torment you worse than the flames!

Don’t make that fatal mistake! Get saved now, so you will go to heaven!

Shelter In The Storm

Shelter In The Storm

God is judging the world right now, but For Christians, who are right with God, Jesus is our shelter in the storm.

Proverbs 3:25-26 “Be not afraid of sudden fear, neither of the desolation of the wicked, when it cometh. For the LORD shall be thy confidence, and shall keep thy foot from being taken.”

Psalms 91:

1 “He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.

2 I will say of the LORD, He is my refuge and my fortress: my God; in him will I trust.

3 Surely he shall deliver thee from the snare of the fowler, and from the noisome pestilence.

4 He shall cover thee with his feathers, and under his wings shalt thou trust: his truth shall be thy shield and buckler.

5 Thou shalt not be afraid for the terror by night; nor for the arrow that flieth by day;

6 Nor for the pestilence that walketh in darkness; nor for the destruction that wasteth at noonday.

7 A thousand shall fall at thy side, and ten thousand at thy right hand; but it shall not come nigh thee.

8 Only with thine eyes shalt thou behold and see the reward of the wicked.

9 Because thou hast made the LORD, which is my refuge, even the most High, thy habitation;

10 There shall no evil befall thee, neither shall any plague come nigh thy dwelling.

11 For he shall give his angels charge over thee, to keep thee in all thy ways.

12 They shall bear thee up in their hands, lest thou dash thy foot against a stone.

13 Thou shalt tread upon the lion and adder: the young lion and the dragon shalt thou trample under feet.

14 Because he hath set his love upon me, therefore will I deliver him: I will set him on high, because he hath known my name.

15 He shall call upon me, and I will answer him: I will be with him in trouble; I will deliver him, and honour him.

16 With long life will I satisfy him, and shew him my salvation.”

Isaiah 43:1b-2 “…Fear not: for I have redeemed thee, I have called thee by thy name; thou art mine. When thou passest through the waters, I will be with thee; and through the rivers, they shall not overflow thee: when thou walkest through the fire, thou shalt not be burned; neither shall the flame kindle upon thee.”

God is always with us, and nothing can separate us from His love.

Hebrews 13:5b “…for he hath said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee.”

Matthew 28:20b “…I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen.”

Romans 8:35-39 “Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword? As it is written, For thy sake we are killed all the day long; we are accounted as sheep for the slaughter. Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us. For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.”  

We must watch, and pray always that we may be accounted worthy to escape all the bad things that God will send on the earth.

Luke 21:36 “Watch ye therefore, and pray always, that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man.”

We must judge ourselves so that we are not judged by God with the world. (We must keep prayed up and repented up.)

Revelation 3:19 “As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten: be zealous therefore, and repent.”

1 Corinthians 11:32 “But when we are judged, we are chastened of the Lord, that we should not be condemned with the world.”

1 Corinthians 11:31 “For if we would judge ourselves, we should not be judged.”

In addition, Jesus showed in the Lord’s prayer that we should pray that God the Father does not test us.

Matthew 6:13 “And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil: For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever. Amen.”

The word “temptation” in this verse means to try and roots back to a Greek word meaning to test (Strong’s Exhaustive Concordance of the Bible with Greek and Hrebrew Dictionaries # 3986 and then #3985 both in the Greek.)

The word “evil” in this verse can mean bad, hurtful, or even “figuratively calamitous; also (passively) ill, that is, diseased.” (Strong’s Exhaustive Concordance of the Bible with Greek and Hrebrew Dictionaries #4190 in the Greek.)

Therefore, in the Lord’s Prayer, Jesus showed us that we should always pray that the Father has mercy on us and does not test or try our faith by sending us calamity or disease.

I have never heard this preached. God showed my family and I this a few years ago, and we have seen God protect us and deliver us from some situations that could have been very calamitous financially and health-wise.

 Now, God may still test your faith some, (He still tests us some at times with little problems), so trust Him to meet your needs.       

Philippians 4:19 “But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus.”

The more you trust God the more apt He will be to not try your faith, because you have already proven your faith to Him.

God never took everything away from Job again.

Do not worry or complain, just trust Him, and He will work everything out for your good.

1 Peter 5:7 “Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you.”

Romans 8:28 “And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.”

Now, that “good” primarily means that you will end up being more like Christ, not necessarily that you will have everything you want.           

Be thankful for and Content with what you have.

1 Thessalonians 5:18 “In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.”

Hebrews 13:5 “Let your conversation be without covetousness; and be content with such things as ye have: for he hath said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee.”

I pray this encourages you and helps you through this storm.

May God bless you and protect you, as you seek to please Him in all things.

Biblical Answers to 5 Common Questions about Mary

Bible

1. Was Mary Divine?

Luke 1:46-47 “And Mary said, My soul doth magnify the Lord, And my spirit hath rejoiced in God my Saviour.”

Matthew 1:21 “And she shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call his name JESUS: for he shall save his people from their sins.”

Mary is recorded in Scripture as calling God her Savior. Only sinners need to be saved. Jesus is God (see John 1:1-3 and John 1:14) and came to save sinners, including Mary.

Mary was not Divine, nor is she co-redeemer with Christ. She was completely human, she was a sinner, and had to be saved, just like us.

2. Does Mary Help People Pray?

Mary does not help people pray. That is the Holy Spirit’s job. Romans 8:26 “Likewise the Spirit also helpeth our infirmities: for we know not what we should pray for as we ought: but the Spirit itself maketh intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered.”

3. Are We to Pray to Mary?

We are not to pray to Mary either. We are only to pray to God.

Matthew 6:6 “But thou, when thou prayest, enter into thy closet, and when thou hast shut thy door, pray to thy Father which is in secret; and thy Father which seeth in secret shall reward thee openly.”

4. What Did Mary Command People to do?

The only command in Scripture that Mary gives is to do what Jesus said.

John 2:5 “His mother saith unto the servants, Whatsoever he saith unto you, do it.”

5. Did Mary Remain a Virgin after the Birth of Jesus?

Matthew 1:25 “And knew her not till she had brought forth her firstborn son: and he called his name JESUS.”

This verse shows that Mary did not remain a virgin after the birth of Christ.

In addition, the Bible shows that Mary and Joseph had other children after Jesus was born.

Mark 6:3a “Is not this the carpenter, the son of Mary, the brother of James, and Joses, and of Juda, and Simon? and are not his sisters here with us?”

If you have never trusted in Jesus Christ alone to save you, please go to the page “How to Get to Heaven” now to learn how.

Hell is Not a Party!

Hell is Not a Party! Hell is Torment!

Hell is not a party, Hell is torment!

Revelation 14:11a “And the smoke of their torment ascendeth up for ever and ever: and they have no rest day nor night,”

Jesus said there is fire in Hell.

Mark 9:43-44 “ And if thy hand offend thee, cut it off: it is better for thee to enter into life maimed, than having two hands to go into hell, into the fire that never shall be quenched. Where their worm dieth not, and the fire is not quenched.” These verses mean to get rid of whatever is stopping you from getting saved, so you do not go to Hell, even if it is a physical body part.”

If you go to Hell, you will never get out, you will be tormented there forever!

The phrase “their worm dieth not” in the passage of Scripture given above is simply saying that people will not die in Hell, but that they will be tormented in fire forever.

Man is referred to as a “worm” in Job 25:6 “How much less man, that is a worm? and the son of man, which is a worm?”

Jesus said that people will die in their sins and go to Hell if they do not believe in Him.

Matthew 23:33 “Ye serpents, ye generation of vipers, how can ye escape the damnation of hell?” If you read the few verses before this one you will see he was speaking to the religious leaders who did not believe in Him.

John 8:24 “I said therefore unto you, that ye shall die in your sins: for if ye believe not that I am he, ye shall die in your sins.” If you go to this passage in the Bible and look at verse 13 you will see that he was talking to the religious leaders who did not believe in Him, just like He was in Matthew 23.

So, yes, Jesus said that people will die in their sins and go to Hell if they do not believe in Him.

Now look at these verses:

Romans 6:23 “For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.”

Revelation 20:14-15 “And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death. And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire,”

Jesus said that if people did not believe in Him then they would die in their sins and go to Hell, the wages of sin is death, that death is the Lake of fire that hell is cast into. Therefore, if you do not believe in Jesus, you will die in your sins, and go to hell and then the lake of fire.

You will be tormented in Hell and then in the lake of fire (remember Hell is thrown into the lake of fire) for all eternity, you will never get out.

Revelation 14:11a “And the smoke of their torment ascendeth up for ever and ever: and they have no rest day nor night,”

You will not even have the comfort of a single drop of water to cool your tongue in Hell!

Luke 16:19-31 “There was a certain rich man, which was clothed in purple and fine linen, and fared sumptuously every day: And there was a certain beggar named Lazarus, which was laid at his gate, full of sores, And desiring to be fed with the crumbs which fell from the rich man’s table: moreover the dogs came and licked his sores. And it came to pass, that the beggar died, and was carried by the angels into Abraham’s bosom: the rich man also died, and was buried; And in hell he lift up his eyes, being in torments, and seeth Abraham afar off, and Lazarus in his bosom. And he cried and said, Father Abraham, have mercy on me, and send Lazarus, that he may dip the tip of his finger in water, and cool my tongue; for I am tormented in this flame. But Abraham said, Son, remember that thou in thy lifetime receivedst thy good things, and likewise Lazarus evil things: but now he is comforted, and thou art tormented. And beside all this, between us and you there is a great gulf fixed: so that they which would pass from hence to you cannot; neither can they pass to us, that would come from thence. Then he said, I pray thee therefore, father, that thou wouldest send him to my father’s house: For I have five brethren; that he may testify unto them, lest they also come into this place of torment. Abraham saith unto him, They have Moses and the prophets; let them hear them. And he said, Nay, father Abraham: but if one went unto them from the dead, they will repent. And he said unto him, If they hear not Moses and the prophets, neither will they be persuaded, though one rose from the dead.”

This is not a parable. This is a true account. Jesus used Lazarus’s name. Jesus never named anyone in parables. That rich man really went to Hell, and he is still being tormented in that flame today, and he has never received any comfort from his torments, not even a single drop of water!

Now, Jesus has risen from the dead. Will you listen to Him and be saved from Hell?

What is worth going to Hell for?

Matthew 16:26 “For what is a man profited, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul? or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul?”

Whatever you are thinking of exchanging your soul for, you will realize was not worth it! Once you are burning in the flames of Hell!

You are not promised another minuet of life! You could die and fall into Hell at any moment!

God gives life; therefore He can take it whenever He wants too! God does not answer to us, we answer to Him! He is God! We are like worms!

Once you die that is it! Nowhere does the Bible promise another chance to get saved after death!

No!

The Bible says after death you are judged!

Hebrews 9:27 “And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment:”

And as shown earlier, if you die in your sins by not believing in Jesus then you go to Hell, and Hell is not a party!

What does it mean to believe in Jesus?

Romans 10:9 “That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.”

To believe in Jesus does not mean to only be fully persuaded in your mind of who Jesus is and what He did.

The word “believe” in Romans 10:9 in the Strong’s Exhaustive Concordance roots backwards twice to a word, which means “obey” (the word believe is Strong’s # 4100 in the Greek, which comes from # 4102, which comes from # 3982, which means obey and also yield).

This shows that true faith is rooted in obedience.

Therefore, in order to fulfill the requirements of salvation in Romans 10:9 you must be fully persuaded in your mind of who Jesus Christ is (God in the flesh John 1:1-3, John 1:14, John 3:16, and 1 John 5:7; Born of a virgin Matthew 1:18-25 and Luke 1:30-35) and what He has done (died on a cross 1 Corinthians 15:3-4 and arose from the dead in a flesh and bone body Luke 24:39), and your heart must change from wanting to sin to wanting to obey God. This is an immediate change of your heart (meaning desire and will).

It means that you yield (submit) your will to God’s will.

That is repentance of sins, and it is required for you to receive forgiveness of your sins.

Luke 13:5 “I tell you, Nay: but, except ye repent, ye shall all likewise perish.”

God does not want you to go to Hell! He wants you to get saved!

Ezekiel 18:23 “Have I any pleasure at all that the wicked should die? saith the Lord GOD: and not that he should return from his ways, and live?”

Ezekiel 18:23 agrees with 2 Peter 3:9 “The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.”

In addition, Matthew 9:13 says “But go ye and learn what that meaneth, I will have mercy, and not sacrifice: for I am not come to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance.”

Your actions may not change immediately after you get saved, but you are going to be so convicted over your sin, when you mess up, that you are going to cry out to God to help you to change.

This is the only way you can go to heaven.

Acts 4:12 “Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.”

If you have never believed in Jesus and repented of your sins, please do it now. Here is a prayer that you can pray word for word or use as a guide to tell God that you believe the gospel, repent of your sins and ask Him to forgive you of your sins.

The prayer does not save you.

The decision to believe in Jesus and repent of your sins is what saves you.

The prayer just helps you tell God that you have made these decisions.

Here is the prayer:

“Dear God, I know that I am a sinner and I believe that Jesus Christ died on the cross and bodily arose from the dead 3 days later to pay for my sins. I repent of my sins. Please forgive me of my sins and help me to obey you and live for you for now on. Please take me to heaven when my life on this earth is over. Thank you for saving me. In Christ Jesus name, Amen.”

As I wrote above, you could die at any moment, and whatever you are thinking of exchanging your soul for, you will realize was not worth it! Once you are burning in the flames of Hell!

In addition, you will always remember this time when you could have been saved by simply believing in Jesus and repenting of your sins, but refused too, and that will torment you worse than the flames!

Don’t make that fatal mistake! Get saved now!

Hell is not a party! It is torment!

Proof Jesus Christ Arose From the Dead

PROOF JESUS CHRIST AROSE FROM THE DEAD

In this article, I will give you proof beyond reasonable doubt that Jesus Christ arose from the dead.

The reasonable doubt standard.

The reasonable doubt standard is the judicial standard. Courts decide everyday whether or not people live or die based on this standard. It is the most sure standard we can have.

The reality of possible doubt.

There is always room for possible doubt, because if someone has a presupposition to not believe something, they can always make up something to deny all evidence that does not agree with their presupposition.

The reality of possible doubt is why lawyers are so careful with Jury selection. They must make sure that no one on the jury has any presuppositions of the suspect being guilty or innocent, because bias could lead to a false conclusion and a false conviction.

So, in order for you, or anyone else, to believe any evidence contrary to what you already believe, you must first get rid of your presupposition.

The Apostles all gave eyewitness accounts that Jesus died on a cross and bodily, arose from the dead.

Luke 24:39 “Behold my hands and my feet, that it is I myself: handle me, and see; for a spirit hath not flesh and bones, as ye see me have.”

1 John 1:1 “That which was from the beginning, which we have heard, which we have seen with our eyes, which we have looked upon, and our hands have handled, of the Word of life;”

Therefore, if Jesus did not die on a cross and rise from the dead, the apostles were either:

Wrong (He did not really die, He was just unconscious.)

Lying (They just made it up.)

Fooled (After Jesus died, an impostor convinced them that He was Jesus risen.)

Delusional (They had a vision.)

Influenced (Only one disciple had a vision and was so influential that the rest believed it.)

Distorted (They or others distorted the account of Jesus’ death and resurrection over time.)

Were they wrong?

There is proof beyond reasonable doubt that the disciples were not wrong about Jesus dying, because:

The Roman soldiers said He was dead and did not break His legs. They broke the legs of the 2 thieves in order to make them suffocate and die faster, because with their legs broken they could not push up in order to breath.  If the soldiers had made a mistake like that, (letting a condemned person live) they would have lost their heads.

Blood and water both came out when Jesus’ side was pierced. We now know because of medical science that this happened because His heart had failed and water had collected in Jesus’ lungs (Called Pleural Effusion), so when His side was pierced his lung was also pierced and the water came out. A person cannot survive this, at least not without immediate and expert medical care, which they did not have back then.

The fact that both blood and water came out proves beyond reasonable doubt that Jesus was dead. Now I guess you can try to make up something to say that even with this, Jesus did not actually die. Anything is possible. But the reasonable conclusion is that Jesus was dead at this point. Remember we are just doing away with reasonable doubt, not all doubt, because it is always possible to doubt, but it is not always reasonable to doubt.

Were they lying?

It is also unreasonable to believe that the disciples were lying about Jesus’ resurrection.

All 12 disciples ended up dying horrible deaths for it decades after it happened, and they were scattered throughout the world. They no longer had the support of each other. None of the others would have known if one of them had recanted, but none of them did, they all died. Why would they die for a lie? It is possible, but it is not reasonable.

Also, if they were lying why would they write that women were the first eye-witnesses to see Jesus alive. In the culture back then the word of a man was seen to be more reliable than the word of a woman. The only reason why the Apostles would have written that a woman saw Jesus first was if that is what happened, and they were just recording the facts.

Furthermore, why would they have written of things that made no sense at that time. Like, both blood and water coming out of Jesus’ side, or Him sweating drops of blood (also now known to be a rare medical phenomenon)?

The Apostles could not explain these things. Someone who lies about something makes sure that all facts can be explained, so to make it more believable. The only reason why they would write something unexplainable like this, is because they actually seen it happen, and they were just simply recording what they saw.

Just as they claimed they were.

Acts 4:20 “For we cannot but speak the things which we have seen and heard.”

It may be possible that the apostles lied, but in light of this evidence, them lying is not a reasonable conclusion.

Were they fooled by an impostor?

The fact that no regular person can walk through walls, or just ascend up into heaven is proof beyond reasonable doubt that the disciples were not fooled by an impostor.

Were they delusional?

It is also unreasonable to believe that they were delusional, because 12 people or even 500 people are not going to have the same vision. That is just ridiculous. I guess if you just did not want to believe it you could claim it is possible. But that is not a reasonable claim. 

Were they influenced?

We have proof beyond reasonable doubt that they were not just influenced by one person having a vision.

The Bible gives us multiple accounts of all the disciples seeing Jesus, and says that 500 people saw Him after He arose. The “influenced” argument is “possible,” because anything is “possible”, but it is not reasonable.

Did they distort the account of Jesus’ resurrection over time?

We also have proof beyond reasonable doubt that the account of the Resurrection of Jesus has not been distorted over time.

The Gospels were written within 60 years after Jesus died.  The earliest Christian writings of Ignatius of Antioch, Polycarp of Smyrna, Papias of Hierapolis etc all agree with the Gospels and say that Jesus died on a cross and arose from the dead 3 days later. And still today all religions that claim to follow Jesus Christ say that Jesus died on a Cross and arose from the dead 3 days later.

Therefore, it is unreasonable to believe that the account of Jesus’ death and resurrection have been distorted and changed over time.

I have now given you evidence beyond all reasonable doubt that Jesus Christ arose from the dead.

Now it is still possible for you to doubt (only because you don’t want to believe), but it is not reasonable.

Even people who saw Jesus doubted, even though they were looking at Him.

Matthew 28:17 “And when they saw him, they worshipped him: but some doubted.”

So, it is possible to doubt Christ’s resurrection, but it is not reasonable to doubt it.

Moreover, since it is unreasonable to believe that the disciples were: wrong, lying, fooled, delusional, Influenced or distorted the account of Jesus’ resurrection, or that the account has been distorted by others over time, the only reasonable conclusion is that they were accurate. Jesus truly did die on a cross and arise from the dead 3 days later.

And since, the resurrection of Jesus Christ is true, that proves that:

 Jesus Christ is God, because no mere human can raise themselves from the dead.

 The Bible is true, because Jesus said it was, and since He is God, He would know. And since the Bible got the most important thing right (Christ’s resurrection), it is reasonable to believe it got everything else right.

John 17:17 “Sanctify them through thy truth: thy word is truth.”

Jesus is the only way to Heaven. Since Jesus is God and died to save us, He would decide how we got to heaven.

John 14:6 “Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.”

 And that anyone who did not go through Him to get to Heaven would go to Hell, because this is what Jesus said.

Matthew 23:33 “Ye serpents, ye generation of vipers, how can ye escape the damnation of hell?” If you read the few verses before this one you will see he was speaking to the religious leaders who did not believe in Him.

John 8:24 “I said therefore unto you, that ye shall die in your sins: for if ye believe not that I am he, ye shall die in your sins.” If you go to this passage in the Bible and look at verse 13 you will see that he was talking to the religious leaders who did not believe in Him, just like He was in Matthew 23.

So, yes, Jesus did say that people die in their sins and go to Hell if they do not believe in Him.

Jesus said there is fire in Hell.

Jesus said so in Mark 9:43-44 “ And if thy hand offend thee, cut it off: it is better for thee to enter into life maimed, than having two hands to go into hell, into the fire that never shall be quenched. Where their worm dieth not, and the fire is not quenched.” These verses mean to get rid of whatever is stopping you from getting saved, so you do not go to Hell, even if it is a physical body part.”

The phrase “their worm dieth not” is simply saying that people will not die in Hell, but that hey will be tormented in fire forever.

Man is referred to as a “worm” in Job 25:6 “How much less man, that is a worm? and the son of man, which is a worm?”

Revelation 14:11a “And the smoke of their torment ascendeth up for ever and ever: and they have no rest day nor night,” Another verse showing people are tormented in Hell forever.

Nothing is worth going to Hell for.

Matthew 16:26 “For what is a man profited, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul? or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul?”
