God Cannot And Will Not Pardon Anyone Without Justice

2nd Corinthians 5:21, “For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him.”

I have often heard unsaved people (both religious and non-religious) say that if God is a loving God, then He won't send them to Hell. Billions of people throughout human history have made the eternal fatal error of assuming that a loving God would never send anyone to Hell. Oh, how wrong they are!

Although God is certainly a God of love, He is equally a God of justice. There must always be justice! Mankind is predictably unpredictable. I read in the news years ago about a man in Alaska, who drove his wife out to a secluded area on a snowy night, and then murdered her with a gun. The judge only sentenced him to 8 years in prison. Yet, in another sad story, a mother in Kansas was sentenced by a harsh judge to 45 years in prison for possessing 1/16th an ounce of cocaine. She was an addict. She needed help, not to be locked in a cage and tortured with loneliness and claustrophobia. In man's court system, there is little justice!

I have felt sickened lately, to see the U.S. Justice Department going after former honorable U.S. president Donald Trump. Yet, the corrupt U.S. Justice Department refused to investigate and prosecute the culprits behind the 9/11 attacks on the World Trade Center, claiming that it was a matter of “national security.” What rotten scoundrels! The corrupt and injustice U.S. Justice Department also used the same lame excuse not to investigate and prosecute the Oklahoma City Bombing in 1995, or the HSBC Banking Scandal (laundering Mexican drug cartel money) in 2015, or the Mena, Arkansas drug trafficking ring (by then horrible corrupt Arkansas thug governor, Bill Clinton).

THE TRUTH is that the U.S. Justice Department is a puppet on a string, controlled by the demonic Masonic powers that really control the United States, a proxy of Israel since 1948. Thankfully, God sees all the injustice, and He will ultimately execute justice!!! Ecclesiastes 5:8, “If thou seest the oppression of the poor, and violent perverting of judgment and justice in a province, marvel not at the matter: for he that is higher than the highest regardeth; and there be higher than they.” Amen and amen!

I once heard the famous movie actor, Jackie Gleason (known as “The Great One”), say that he didn't think that God would send him to Hell for committing one sin. Kindly said, Jackie Gleason was so WRONG! James 2:10, “For whosoever shall keep the whole law, and yet offend in one point, he is guilty of all.” It is tragic that he didn't know Jesus Christ as his personal Savior, which is the ONLY way to Heaven. Mr. Gleason said publicly on 60 Minutes in 1984 that his greatest fear was not making Heaven. Sadly, that appears to be what happened, he missed Heaven and went to burn in Hell forever and ever. The inspired Word of God is very clear that a person MUST BE BORN AGAIN to enter into the Kingdom of God. John 3:3, “Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.”

By God's mercy and grace, in response to my faith in the Gospel (Good News) of Jesus' death on the cross, burial and bodily resurrection, I was born-again in 1980 at age 13. I thank God for the gift of His precious only begotten Son, Jesus. I do not deserve to go to Heaven. I deserve to go to Hell to burn forever, because of my own sins. Even one sin is enough to condemn a person to the Lake of Fire for all eternity, without hope or rest. God the Father in His genuine unconditional love, sent His only begotten (biological) Son into the world, to die a criminal's death on the cross, as a substitutionary sacrificial lamb for you and me dear reader.

Jesus paid it all! If you want to escape the fires of Hell, and spend eternity with Jesus and the hosts of Heaven in splendor and joy, then you must be born-again. Your sins must be paid for. Either you must spend eternity in Hell paying for your own crimes against God and man, or else you can receive Christ's sacrifice on the cross as payment for your sins instead. I assure you, upon the authority of the Holy Bible, that God will NOT let you slide someday for your wickedness. God doesn't forget those wicked sins and crimes that you commit in your youth, that humanity doesn't know about, or time has effectively seemingly erased. No doubt there are murderers, pedophiles, rapists, thieves and atrocious criminals at large still, who have never been caught by the police yet. But you cannot escape the omniscience and justice of our holy God. Hebrews 4:13, “Neither is there any creature that is not manifest in his sight: but all things are naked and opened unto the eyes of him with whom we have to do.” Hebrews 10:31, “It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God.

According to God's promises in the Bible, no one ever gets away with anything! Matthew 12:36 warns that God will hold men accountable even for their words. Proverbs 24:12 warns that even if men deny their wrong doing, God knows their very thoughts and intents of the heart, and will call them LIARS! You cannot hide or deceive God dear friend, because He knows and sees everything about you (Psalms s139:1-6). Romans 14:10-12 warns that all men will stand before the judgment of God, and give account. This means you! This means me! This means everyone! God is not a respecter of persons. It matters not how rich or poor you are. It matters not whether you are famous or unknown. It matters not if you are big or small, short or tall, learned or ignorant, cultured or uncouth, et cetera.

There MUST be justice! Sin must be paid for. No one can enter into Heaven merely because God is merciful and kind. You must consciously accept God's free gift of eternal life, which is only through faith in the Lord Jesus Christ. Philippians 3:9, “And be found in him, not having mine own righteousness, which is of the law, but that which is through the faith of Christ, the righteousness which is of God by faith:”

So please do not make the grave mistake of foolishly thinking that just because you would let someone off the hook easily, that God is like you, because I assure you that HE IS NOT! God's holiness demands absolute justice, and justice cannot be foregone, overlooked or dismissed. That is exactly why Christ had to die on a cross to PAY for our sins, which were grievous and many. There was no other way of escape:
Romans 5:8-10, “But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. Much more then, being now justified by his blood, we shall be saved from wrath through him. For if, when we were enemies, we were reconciled to God by the death of his Son, much more, being reconciled, we shall be saved by his life.”
Did you read that friend? The Bible teaches that we are justified BY HIS BLOOD. John MacArthur is a theological liar, who says that Jesus' blood actually only means His death. No, Mr. MacArthur, you are an infidel on your way to everlasting destruction. We are saved BY THE BLOOD of Jesus Christ (1st Peter 1:18-19; Revelation 1:5, 7:14; 1st John 1:7). Jesus willingly shed His precious blood on Calvary's cross, and then took that liquid blood to Heaven (Hebrews 9:12), to sprinkled on the Mercy Seat in the Holy Place (Hebrews 12:24), in the presence of God on our behalf (Hebrews 9:22-24). Praise the Lord!!!

Please make sure that you have been born-again! Being religious is not the way to Heaven. Attending church, following Christ, surrendering all to God, giving your life to serve Jesus, turning away from sinful ways—these things are all proper in their place along the Christian journey of sanctification, but NONE of these things comprise THE GOSPEL (1st Corinthians 15:1-6); and you may do all these things and yet never have been saved at all. YE MUST BE BORN AGAIN (John 3:3b).

That is the ONLY way to meet God's demand and standard for justice. There is nothing that you can do to remedy your own dilemma. You are a hopeless sinful wretch dear reader, and so am I. Apart from Christ's sacrifice through Calvary's cross, there is no hope for anyone!!! If you will simply humble yourself before almighty God, to admit that you are a hopeless guilty sinner in need of a Savior; and cast yourself at the beautiful feet of the only begotten Son of God, by putting your complete reliance in Jesus Christ to save you, then He promises to do so immediately. John 6:37, “All that the Father giveth me shall come to me; and him that cometh to me I will in no wise cast out.”

Simply believe (put your trust in) THE FACTS of the Gospel, that Jesus is the Christ, the only begotten Son of God (John 20:31), who died in your place on the cross, was buried, but three glorious days later He bodily resurrected from the dead. This is THE GOSPEL by which all who believe it are saved (1st Corinthians 15:1-4). That is how you can be declared JUSTIFIED by God in Heaven, JUST-IF-I'D never sinned at all. What an awesome God!!! Micah 7:18, “Who is a God like unto thee, that pardoneth iniquity, and passeth by the transgression of the remnant of his heritage?  he retaineth not his anger for ever, because he delighteth in mercy.”

Beware Of 'UNSHACKLED' Radio's Deadly False Gospel

Galatians 1:6-9, “I marvel that ye are so soon removed from him that called you into the grace of Christ unto another gospel: Which is not another; but there be some that trouble you, and would pervert the gospel of Christ. But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed. As we said before, so say I now again, If any man preach any other gospel unto you than that ye have received, let him be accursed.”

I was listening to 'UNSHACKLED' today. I've heard a couple dozen episodes over the past couple days. I wanted to vomit as I heard PGM spewing their lies of LORDSHIP SALVATION, WRONG REPENTANCE and OTHER HERESIES!

Case in point is 'UNSHACKLED' program #3590 (aired in 2019). A man named Matthew gets a flat tire and stops in a little church, meeting a church member named Ted, who listens to Matthew's troubled life's story and offers this horrible advice:
“I believe God loves you, and wants you to invite Him into your life. I believe that is the change you may be looking for!”
This type of junk theology saturates the UNSHACKLED series! Folks, you don't get saved by “inviting Jesus into your life”! Judas invited Jesus into his life, becoming one of Christ's very apostles, but Judas had a devil in him (John 6:70), and went to Hell.

In little later in the UNSHACKLED program (after being coached by his religious sister to “REPENT and RECEIVE THE INVITATION”), Matthew prays and tells Jesus that he wants Him to be his Savior, but there is no mention of Christ's death, burial or resurrection (The Gospel). Matthew says:
“I got up from my knees and I was free. I was new. That day God delivered me from my addictions! Within minutes of my spiritual salvation, he took away my impulse to use [drugs].”
Folks, that is junk theology! Here is the truth...
“Good character is not formed in a week or a month. It is created little by little, day by day. Protracted and patient effort is needed to develop good character.” —Heraclitus of Ephesus (535-475 BC)

What saith the Scripture? ...

Romans 12:1-2, “I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service. And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.”
I am unalterably opposed to Pacific Garden Mission's junk theology, which says that a sinner must “REPENT and BELIEVE” (two steps) to be saved. The problem is that PGM wrongly understands repentance to mean full surrender to Christ, and to turn away from one's sins. This is the heresy of Lordship Salvation. I am against the heretical idea that if a person comes to Christ, they will instantaneously be changed. The only difference when you get saved is the presence of the indwelling Holy Spirit of God (1st Corinthians 3:16-17; Romans 8:9; 1st John 3:24).

As I just showed you from Romans 12:1-2, the Bible says we are TRANSFORMED (changed), by the RENEWING OF OUR MIND. This is very different than the false message being propagated by UNSHACKLED that your life will immediately change at the time of salvation. It is junk theology, meaning it is not Biblical; it is JUNK!!!

Growing in grace takes time. Granted, you cannot sit under the Word of God and not be changed! Romans 10:17, “So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.” However, it takes time for a new believer to change, as they are renewed in their mind by the Word of God (Romans 12:1-2). That is why I am very much against the junk theology being promoted by Pacific Garden Mission's 'UNSHACKLED' radio program, which relentlessly promotes the idea that the moment a person comes to Jesus Christ, they will instantly become a 'new creature' in behavior, and all desire to commit sin will be gone forever! PGM errantly understands this to be repentance.

When they tell people to “REPENT and BELIEVE” in all their UNSHACKLED episodes, what they really mean is to turn away from your sins AND then also place your faith in Christ. It is a TWO STEP false plan of salvation! What they are really saying is that a person must commit to KEEPING THE LAW before Christ will accept their faith in Him for salvation. This is “ANOTHER GOSPEL,” which is accursed by God (Galatians 1:6-7). Case in point!

The Corrupt 'UNSHACKLED' Religious Experience of Debbie Brooks

Many of UNSHACKLED's heart-touching stories are a nice fairytale, but they are not Scriptural! Here is PGM's 'GO TO' Bible passage—2nd Corinthians 5:17-18, “Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new. And all things are of God, who hath reconciled us to himself by Jesus Christ, and hath given to us the ministry of reconciliation;” There is a fine line between faith and foolishness! God knows that I am not trying to be negative, nor criticize Pacific Garden Mission without a cause; but rather, they are pressuring sinners to make a commitment to turn away from sin to be saved, which is not true.

For example: In UNSHACKLED program #3589 (aired in 2020), a woman named Debbie Brooks meets with a religious friend named Sharon:
SHARON: Trusting Jesus is the only thing that can make a difference in my messed-up life.

DEBBIE: I keep hearing that in church, but I don't get it—how something that EASY can be a life-changer.

SHARON: Oh Debbie, it's not easy—believing in Jesus means repenting and asking forgiveness for all the old ways, and then GIVING THEM UP FOR GOOD. When you find the COURAGE TO DO THAT, He'll help you CHANGE YOUR LIFE.

DEBBIE: Huh, well, I'll have to think about it. Dear reader, what you just read taught by Pacific Garden Mission in Chicago is of the Devil, straight out of the pits of Hell. I hope you see how evil this is. According to this UNSHACKLED program, it is NOT EASY to be saved; because you are required to GIVE UP YOUR OLD SINFUL WAYS PERMANENTLY! That is “another gospel” accursed by God!
Galatians 1:6-9, “I marvel that ye are so soon removed from him that called you into the grace of Christ unto another gospel: Which is not another; but there be some that trouble you, and would pervert the gospel of Christ. But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed. As we said before, so say I now again, If any man preach any other gospel unto you than that ye have received, let him be accursed.”

Pacific Garden Mission are PREACHING ANOTHER GOSPEL!!!

The Gospel is not open to embellishment. There is a certain degree of allowable semantics in presenting God's plan of salvation, but the Gospel itself is set in concrete! Here it is:
1st Corinthians 15:1-4, “Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand; By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain. For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:”
There you have it—Jesus DIED, was BURIED, and miraculously RESURRECTED three days later. There is no mention of turning away from sins, forsaking the old ways for good, speaking in tongues, getting water baptized, joining a church, praying, confessing Jesus publicly, nor of anything else to be saved! The apostle Paul said this is, 'THE GOSPEL,' which Jesus personally gave to Him.
Galatians 1:11-12, “But I certify you, brethren, that the gospel which was preached of me is not after man. For I neither received it of man, neither was I taught it, but by the revelation of Jesus Christ.”
The Corrupt 'UNSHACKLED' Religious Experience of Angel Feliciano

I listened to program #3588 (aired in 2019) about a Hispanic man named Angel Feliciano. Unfortunately, PGM uses a lot of junk theology, and I am simply trying to help believers solidify their faith, by exposing the unbiblical teachings of UNSHACKLED radio. For example: Toward the end of this episode, the UNSHACKLED narrator says:
“Jesus will gladly receive you, and he wants you to receive Him. He wants a relationship with you. Angels' life changed forever when he asked Jesus Christ into his heart. The same can happen for you if you so desire. Just talk to the Lord. Tell Him you're sorry for the sins in your life. Receive Him as your Savior and trust in Him. It's that simple!” [emphasis added]
There are a few problems with the preceding corrupt plan of salvation:
First, having “A RELATIONSHIP” is not part of the Gospel. Judas had a relationship with Jesus, but still went to hell in his unbelief.

Second, you don't have to “ASK” Jesus to save you, because He has already paid for all your sins on the cross with His precious blood; Jesus is OFFERING you eternal life.

Third, you don't have to “TALK TO THE LORD” to be saved. All the Bible teaches is that you “BELIEVE” on the name of the Lord Jesus Christ to be saved (Acts 16:30-31).

Fourth, don't get saved by “ASKING JESUS INTO YOUR HEART.” A heart is a muscle twice the size of your fist, that pumps blood 100,000 times per day!

Fifth, you don't have to receive Jesus as your Savior AND trust Him. To receive Christ is to trust Him, and to trust Jesus is to receive Him!

Sixth, you don't have to "BE SORRY" for your sins to be saved. You don't have to "BE SORRY" for your sins to be saved. We are ALL guilty at some point in our Christian life of embellishing the Gospel with junk theology. I used to tell people to 'invite Jesus into their heart' many years ago, but when I learned that it was unbiblical, I immediately stopped doing it! I question everything now!!!
Seventh, there is NO MENTION OF THE GOSPEL. Where is Jesus' death, burial and bodily resurrection the third day? The Bible plainly defines 'THE GOSPEL' in 1st Corinthians 15:1-4 as Jesus' death on the cross, burial and literal physical resurrection. Tragically, religious people everywhere are guilty of corrupting the accuracy of the Gospel, by embellishing and changing it (2nd Peter 3:16-17). They don't do it on purpose; but rather, because they are woefully ignorant, and many are still unsaved. A false gospel cannot produce the new birth (John 1:12-13).
Much unnecessary worry, fear and uncertainty are caused by the lie of Lordship Salvation. No one ought to wonder if their life has changed enough to prove they're saved.

Dear friend, if you need to look at your life to prove you're saved, IT PROVES THAT YOU'RE NOT!!! Eternal life is a completely free gift, which imposes no obligations or demands on the recipient. You simply come as a guilty sinner and receive God's free gift of eternal life, by believing the record given in the Holy Bible of Jesus Christ, Who died in your place on the cross. Simply receive Christ's sacrifice on the cross as payment for your sins. Salvation is not doing your best, it is having Christ's best put to your account through receiving Him by faith. I love this powerful quote by Dr. Yankee Arnold:
“There is power in this Gospel message. Most people just don't know how to present it... The clarity of the Gospel is what makes it easy for them to believe.” —Pastor “Yankee” Arnold, a quote from the excellent MP3 sermon titled, “WHY GRACE CAN SAVE THE WORST MAN!

"Faith" Him When You Can't Feel Him

by Evangelist Lester Roloff (1914-1982)

“Oh that I knew where I might find him! that I might come even to his seat!” —Job 23:3

The thing that will reveal your faith is praying when no answer comes. That's the supreme test. I've gone over a number of chapters in the book of Job again. In one of them, Job said, "Oh that I knew where I might find Him." He was looking for God. Can you imagine? He was the best man God had and he couldn't find Him. He said "Lord, I want you to show me why you're doing this to me. We've always been on good terms and you've been my best friend. I'm not against you and am not going to turn against you, but I need an explanation and I want you to give it." But the Lord didn't pay him any attention. I imagine the Lord just kind of smiled and said, "Later on. After a while."

So finally Job said "I went forward and He wasn't there. Backward. I couldn't perceive Him. On the left hand where He doth work. I couldn't behold Him. On the right hand where He hid himself and I couldn't see him." That's all the directions isn't it? Forward, backward, left, right. He said "I couldn't get one glimpse of Him." Then he said, "But He knoweth the way that I take and when He hath tried me, He will bring me forth as gold. My feet have held His steps. His way have I kept and not declined. Neither have I gone back from the commandment of His lips. I've esteemed His words more than my necessary food." That's the secret of it right there. It was the most severe test he ever had. It wasn't when all of his ten children died. It wasn't when he lost all of his camels, oxen and sheep and goats and chickens. It wasn't when he lost all of his servants. The greatest loss was not when Mrs. Job came and said, "Just curse God and die." That wasn't his most severe test. That was just part of it.

Then three fair-weather friends came and looked at him and they didn't speak for seven days. Not one word. Finally they opened their mouths and skinned him and scalded him and scathed him and ate him up alive. But that wasn't his greatest test. Do you know what the greatest test was? You've never been there until you've reached this place, and that is when you look up to God and there's not any God. You just pray like you used to pray and there's no answer. There's no response. There's no God. There's no feeling and your faith is severely tested. But let me tell you something. You're going to have to learn to believe God when you cannot perceive God. You're going to have to learn to "faith" Him when you can't feel Him. Unless you do, you're going to be in bad shape before this thing's over with. There'll come a time when God reserves the right to cut you completely loose from Him and then see what your faith will lead you to do. "In all this, Job sinned not nor charged God foolishly."

The Bible Purpose For Church Discipleship

Matthew 28:18-20, “And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth. Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen.”

Luke 8:11-15, Now the parable is this: The seed is the word of God. Those by the way side are they that hear; then cometh the devil, and taketh away the word out of their hearts, lest they should believe and be saved. They on the rock are they, which, when they hear, receive the word with joy; and these have no root, which for a while believe, and in time of temptation fall away. And that which fell among thorns are they, which, when they have heard, go forth, and are choked with cares and riches and pleasures of this life, and bring no fruit to perfection. But that on the good ground are they, which in an honest and good heart, having heard the word, keep it, and bring forth fruit with patience.

What is discipling? It is part of The Great Commission in Matthew 28:19-20, to "GO YE" into all the world preaching the Gospel. And then water baptize those converts as a public profession of their faith. Water baptism symbolizes THE GOSPEL (i.e., the death on a cross, burial and bodily resurrection of Jesus the third day). And then The Great Commission includes "teaching" (indoctrinating) new converts with all the things Christ taught us (i.e., the truths of the inspired Word of God).

The simple yet profound idea behind The Great Commission is for the Gospel (Good News) to perpetuate itself. That is, we lead someone to Christ, and then TEACH THEM to go lead others to Christ; and then those new converts go TEACH THEIR CONVERTS to go win more lost sinners to Christ. Double a penny each day for 30 days and you'll have over $1,000,000 at the end. Do the math if you don't believe me! This is the magic of compounding interest, and the idea behind The Great Commission.

Sadly, nearly all Baptist churches today don't teach soulwinning, so with each new convert the line of faith dies. I praise God for every soul saved in churches, but God's perfect will for EVERY SAINT is to mature to bear fruit. We have failed utterly in this spiritual duty. 1st Corinthians 9:16, “For though I preach the gospel, I have nothing to glory of: for necessity is laid upon me; yea, woe is unto me, if I preach not the gospel!”

This is what the curious parable of The Sower And The Seeds in Luke 8:11-15 is about. I've heard false teachers like Ray Comfort and Paul Washer errantly teach that this parable is about getting saved. Ray Comfort says the 2nd group in Luke 8:13, who had shallow roots, lost their salvation. Ray is WRONG! This parable is about soulwinning, not salvation. The "seed" is the Word of God according to Luke 8:11.
  1. The first group heard the Gospel (the seed - 1st Peter 1:23), but the Devil came along and took away the seed, so they didn't get saved.
  2. The 2nd group DID get saved. We know this because the seed began to grow, but due to having no strong roots, the plant was uprooted when the winds of persecution blew. I read online that The Beatles member John Lennon became a Christian, seeking answers. Sadly, John reached out to Oral Roberts (whom John had seen on TV). Oral Roberts mistreated John, and the public persecuted John for his new found faith, so he fell away from maturing and gave up on it. I believe John Lennon is in heaven today. This is what Luke 8:13 is saying, for people like John Lennon, who never grew deep roots that cannot be uprooted.
  3. The 3rd group in Luke 8:14 were choked by the cares, riches and pleasures of this temporal earthly life. This is where I think 90% of saints are today. We're all so busy with life, work and family that we have no time for soulwinning. They bring forth no fruit to perfection the Bible says. This parable is about maturing, growing in God's grace, to become a soulwinner.
  4. Ah, I love verse 15, "But that on the good ground are they, which in an honest and good heart, having heard the word, keep it, and bring forth fruit with patience." This is what proper church discipleship should produce, a fervent soulwinning Christian. I wanted to share this with you, because I think this truth is so important, which we rarely hear taught anymore. God bless.
If today's church pastors and laymen fail to TEACH SOULWINNING to all of our converts, then we are utterly failing to obey The Great Commission in Matthew 28:19-20. It reminds me of the old truthful cliché: “Give a man a fish and you've fed him for a day; teach a man to fish and you've fed him for a lifetime.” Yes, it is so true! That is what is wrong with this spoiled rotten millennial generation today, who blame everyone for their failures except themselves, expecting a handout from society instead of making their own way by hard work, purpose and tenacity.

The same applies to soulwinning! We've got a bunch of lazy pastors and churches today! Everything rises and falls on leadership! If church leaders are too inept or lazy to go door-to-door soulwinning in public, then how can we expect church members to go soulwinning? And then when we do see people get saved here and there, we fail to train them to obey The Great Commission. The average church doesn't teach or go soulwinning. Some churches will teach soulwinning once or twice a year, but it is more of a topic that is covered once and a while, instead of a way of live for a local New Testament church. SOULWINNING ought to be the MAIN THING, not an occasional topic that is covered.

The primary purpose of church discipleship is so that our converts will become soulwinners themselves. Thank you very much for reading my blogs. To God alone be the glory. I love you (whosoever you may be) with Christ's love. Please email me if you need prayer, or have any Bible questions, that is why I am hear, to feed Jesus' sheep. God bless.

The “Fruit” Men Are Know By Is The Type Of Gospel They Preach

Matthew 12:31-37, “Wherefore I say unto you, All manner of sin and blasphemy shall be forgiven unto men: but the blasphemy against the Holy Ghost shall not be forgiven unto men. And whosoever speaketh a word against the Son of man, it shall be forgiven him: but whosoever speaketh against the Holy Ghost, it shall not be forgiven him, neither in this world, neither in the world to come. Either make the tree good, and his fruit good; or else make the tree corrupt, and his fruit corrupt: for the tree is known by his fruit.  O generation of vipers, how can ye, being evil, speak good things? for out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaketh. A good man out of the good treasure of the heart bringeth forth good things: and an evil man out of the evil treasure bringeth forth evil things. But I say unto you, That every idle word that men shall speak, they shall give account thereof in the day of judgment. For by thy words thou shalt be justified, and by thy words thou shalt be condemned.”

What is the “fruit” by which men are known? It is the Gospel according to Verse 31, “Wherefore I say unto you, All manner of sin and blasphemy shall be forgiven unto men: but the blasphemy against the Holy Ghost shall not be forgiven unto men.” The ONLY unpardonable sin that any person can commit is not to accept God's free gift of eternal life by faith alone in Jesus Christ:
John 3:16-18, “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. For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved. He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.
The latter part of John 3:18 is the “unpardonable sin.” The only sin which can keep a person out of God's Kingdom is unbelief. Therefore, the only sin from which men must turn away to be saved is UNBELIEF. Even the vilest sinner upon the earth, if he or she BELIEVES ON THE LORD JESUS CHRIST as their personal Savior (believing that Christ died on the cross for their sins, was buried and resurrected physically three days later) is immediately, irrevocably and forever born-again by the Holy Spirit. Nothing more is required nor allowed by God to get to Heaven. We are saved by God's righteousness, which is by grace through faith in Jesus.

So we see that the subject at hand here is THE GOSPEL. We can know a preacher's “fruit” by the type of Gospel that he or she preaches. Sadly, Joyce Meyer is a damnable false prophet. Joyce Meyer's fruit is rotten and she is a corrupt tree.

Also, Evangelist Ray Comfort preaches a damnable false gospel. Ray's fruit is rotten because his tree is corrupt!

Another damnable false teacher is Evangelist Steve Pettit (theologically incompetent president of Bob Jones University since 2014). Steve Pettit is a corrupt tree that produces rotten fruit.

These are dangerous religious figures who do not rightly divide the Word of Truth (2nd Timothy 2:15). They wrest the Scripture to their own destruction, and of those who foolishly follow them (2nd Peter 3:16-18). These false prophets preach another gospel, rotten fruit.

I wrote this blog to teach you that we can know who is of God or the Devil, by the salvation testimony and message which they preach! Anyone who differs in their gospel preaching from the Good News (Gospel) taught in the Holy Bible is a false prophet. I'm sure you've heard Bible teachers say that our “works are the fruit, but they are wrong! Unsaved religious people do good works all over the planet. In Acts 10:1-5 we read about Cornelius, a good man (as far as good sinful men go), gave alms to the poor. He prayed and fasted. He helped others. But Cornelius was still hellbound in his sins. Cornelius didn't get saved until Acts 10:43 when he BELIEVED the Gospel which the Apostle Peter preached to him. So if good deeds were evidence of being saved, then Cornelius would have been saved, but he wasn't.

The only “fruit” by which we can know a false prophet is the plan of salvation which they preach. All manner of sin committed by men will be forgiven them, except that of not getting born-again by faith alone in the Good News of Jesus Christ (1st Corinthians 15:1-4; Acts 16:30-31; Galatians 3:26). Proverbs 30:5-6, “Every word of God is pure: he is a shield unto them that put their trust in him. Add thou not unto his words, lest he reprove thee, and thou be found a liar.” We've got a bunch of lying preachers in church pulpits today, adding their own words to God's eternally inspired Word, preaching another gospel accursed by God (Galatians 1:6-9). By their fruit shall you know them!!!

One Bible Verse Proves Repentance Heretics All Wrong!

Romans 6:1, “What shall we say then? Shall we continue in sin, that grace may abound?”

Here is a wonderful Bible verse I just read that PROVES WRONG James Melton, John MacArthur, Sam Horn, Ray Comfort, Paul Washer, Marty Herron, Steve Pettit, Chuck Phelps, Gary Walton, Jeff Redlin, Timothy Zacharias, Chip Ingram, William Lane Craig, Rick Warren, Benny Hinn, Joel Osteen, Steven Furtick, John Hagee, Charles Stanley, Adrian Rogers, Keith Gomez, Billy Graham, Franklin Graham, Mormons, Seventh-Day Adventists, Jehovah's Witness, Roman Catholics, Church of Christ, Moody Bible Institute, Bob Jones University, Pensacola Christian College, Liberty University, Master's University, Faith Baptist Bible College and Theological Seminary, Pacific Garden Mission's 'UNSHACKLED' radio series, and MILLIONS more heretics on Bible repentance, who all falsely teach that genuine repentance results in a change of behavior (without which change they ASS-U-ME that you have never been born-again at all)...

Romans 6:1, “What shall we say then? Shall we continue in sin, that grace may abound?”
If a Christian CHOOSES to continue living like the Devil, for the remainder of their natural life, GRACE WILL ABOUND!!!!!!! That is, they can never forfeit, jeopardize nor lose God's free gift of eternal life, which is by faith alone WITHOUT WORKS (Romans 4:4-7).

Christian author Michael Patrick Bowen accurately states in his excellent book titled, “I NEVER KNEW YOU,” on page 114:
“Repent, as Christ meant it to be in terms of salvation, means to change your mind from trusting in what you can do for God to trusting only in what He can do for you.” ~Michael Patrick Bowen, “I NEVER NEW YOU” (p. 114)
The beloved Pastor Bob Gray Sr. correctly preaches:
“Repentance means to change your mind—change your mind—change your mind about how you want to get to Heaven to what God says you've got to do to get to Heaven. If you've got to repent of all your sins, you're still headed for Hell tonight.” ~Pastor Bob Gray Sr., Why You Should Be A Part Of A Growing Church
Here is an excellent and needful writing by Dr. Mark G. Cambron (1911-2000) on the subject of REPENTANCE. Please read the following quote carefully, because Dr. Cambron is one of few theologian who gets it 100% correct, that is, he understands the simplicity of the Gospel and that repentance does not mean turning from sin as proponents of Lordship Salvation foolishly teach:
Repentance is necessary for salvation.

The Greek word for repent is metanoeo, which, translated into English is: to change ones mind. It does not mean to turn from sin. That would add works to salvation.

Repentance for salvation means a change of mind from men's ideas of salvation and religion, to an acceptance of Gods only way of salvation.

This results in a completely new creation, not a reformation of the old. The old nature remains as evil as ever after salvation and has not been reformed . . . The old nature can now be controlled by the indwelling power of the Holy Spirit.
God guarantees salvation. This is His gift to us.
God guarantees reward and fruit to the obedient son.
God guarantees chastening and loss of rewards to the disobedient son.
God does not cast out disobedient children, but in some cases, does take them home. He does not permit His children to live as they please without His discipline and guidance.

Many teach repentance for salvation incorrectly, by including some form of human effort or righteousness, such as willingness to turn from sin, or turning from sin. This is heresy and has confused many people. It adds works to salvation and causes many to not understand Gods great gift. It is probation, not salvation. It is completely unscriptural. It is Galatianism and a counterfeit of the gospel.

It is a tragedy that many Christians live shallow Christian lives. The Cambron Institute is dedicated to the task of training Christian men and women in the importance of total dedication and making Jesus the Lord of their lives not to be saved but because they are saved.

Shallow Christianity cannot be cured by adding works to salvation.

Salvation is not the result of what we do, but is by receiving what God has done for us. Acts 13:38, 39; Acts 20:20: Gal. 1:8,9; Gal. 2:4; Gal. 2:21; Gal. 3:1.3; Gal. 5:1-4; Eph. 2:8-10; II Cor. 5:21;John 3:16-18; Phil. 3:9; Titus 3:5-8:11 Cor. 11:13-1 5.

Amen! I fully agree. The only thing that is required to be saved is to realize one's need as a guilty sinner in the sight of a holy God (Romans 3:19-20). You must know why and what you are being saved from, which is from the consequences of our sin, which is to suffer the Second Death in the Lake of Fire forever (Romans 6:23; Revelation 21:8). Jesus Christ paid our debt of sin on the cross, so that we could escape this horrifying judgment and eternal fate (Romans 5:9). I also fully agree with what Pastor Harry Ironside says about repentance:
“The Gospel is not a call to repentance, or to amendment of our ways, to make restitution for past sins, or to promise to do better in the future. These things are proper in their place, but they do not constitute the Gospel; for the Gospel is not good advice to be obeyed, it is good news to be believed. Do not make the mistake then of thinking that the Gospel is a call to duty or a call to reformation, a call to better your condition, to behave yourself in a more perfect way than you have been doing in the past …Nor is the Gospel a demand that you give up the world, that you give up your sins, that you break off bad habits, and try to cultivate good ones. You may do all these things, and yet never believe the Gospel and consequently never be saved at all.” ~Dr. Harry A. Ironside, 'What Is The Gospel?'
Yes, it is possible dear reader for a true believer to CONTINUE IN SIN, and still have the 100% absolute confidence and peace of soul that he or she is saved safe and secure in the Father's hands. Romans 6:1, “What shall we say then? Shall we continue in sin, that grace may abound?” No matter how much we may choose to sin as a child of God, GRACE WILL ABOUND. That refutes every false prophet who errantly preaches that if a person's faith is real, then they will live a changed life. No, there is no Biblical proof of that claim. Not all saints live changed lives. In fact, many are downright rotten to the end! Certainly, every one of God's children continue in sin to some degree, because no one is without iniquity.

So if your church pastor says to “turn from your sin” or “repent of your sin” to be saved, ask him exactly what he means by that (because 95% won't tell you plainly unless you ask them directly). If he answers that there must be conviction of sin, so that you see your need to Christ, then he is okay. Albeit, he shouldn't be using those unbiblical phrase “turn from your sin” or “repent of your sin” because they confuse people!

But if your pastor answers that genuine repentance results in a change of behavior, then I plead with you to either tell your pastor that he is wrong, or LEAVE THAT PLACE in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ if he refuses to repent of his wrong repentance!!! Sadly, 99% of pastors are full of sinful ego, stinking pride, so that they greatly resent someone questioning or God forbid, correcting, THEIR doctrine. The ideas of 
“turn from your sin” or “repent of your sin” are MANMADE commandments, and not the COMMANDMENTS OF GOD. Mark 7:9, And he said unto them, Full well ye reject the commandment of God, that ye may keep your own tradition.

To sinfully tell someone that repentance by implication cannot just mean a change of mind is to corrupt the inspired Word of God. In fact, repentance does just mean a change of mind in the original Koine Greek New Testament. We are saved by BELIEVING the Gospel of Jesus Christ. That is, the GOOD NEWS of Jesus Christ crucified on a cross, buried and bodily risen the third day (1st Corinthians 15:1-4). If turning away from sinful behavior were necessary to be saved, then the Apostle Paul would have included it in his defining of the Gospel, which Paul said we are saved by if we BELIEVE IT!!!

Furthermore, the Epistle of 1st John is perhaps the most misunderstood in the Holy Bible. Certainly 1st John is often misunderstood. 1st John 3:8, “He that committeth sin is of the devil; for the devil sinneth from the beginning. For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that he might destroy the works of the devil. John is not saying that a professed believer who wilfully sins is not saved, God forbid. The next verse in 1st John 3:9 says, Whosoever is born of God doth not commit sin; for his seed remaineth in him: and he cannot sin, because he is born of God. Since every saint still sins, we know that this verse must mean when we choose to sin, it is the FLESH and not the HOLY SPIRIT that is committing sin.

We find the answer in Romans 8:4, “That the righteousness of the law might be fulfilled in us, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit. For they that are after the flesh do mind the things of the flesh; but they that are after the Spirit the things of the Spirit.
And we read in Romans 8:8, “So then they that are in the flesh cannot please God. The most important verse in 1st John, in my humble opinion, is 1st John 3:24, “And he that keepeth his commandments dwelleth in him, and he in him. And hereby we know that he abideth in us, by the Spirit which he hath given us. In my mind, I have always thought that the only way to KNOW you're saved (1st John 5:13) is by one's FAITH in Jesus Christ. But the Bible says we KNOW that we are God's child by the indwelling Holy Spirit.

It is my humble opinion that the reason for which God said this, is simply because there are millions of people who have heard the Gospel their entire life, and are very familiar with what is required to get to Heaven, but they (as Judas) just don't believe. I have heard Benny Hinn preach the Gospel correctly in one meeting, and preach damnable heresy in the next. Will the real Benny Hinn please stand up! I have heard the same hypocrisy from Dr. John MacArthur. My spiritual discernment tells me that Benny Hinn knows the details of the Gospel, but he doesn't believe a word of it, he just manipulates people and exploits Christianity to make billions of dollars in filthy lucre. Hebrews 4:2 says that the Jews in the Wilderness heard Moses preach the Gospel for 40 years! But they perished in their sins because they didn't have any FAITH in the Gospel.

I think that is why God authored the Epistle of 1st John, so that we as INDIVIDUALS can self-examine our own soul, to determine if we have the HOLY SPIRIT. John never once says that works are evidence of being saved; but rather, if we are saved we will be convicted by the indwelling Holy Spirit about the sins in our life. It is false doctrine to look at one's life to prove that we are saved. Please don't do that. If you have God living in you, then YOU KNOW IT! Since the age of 13, I have known the sweet presence of God's Holy Spirit in my life. I wasn't aware of the Holy Spirit when I got saved at age 13. It wasn't until age 18 that I began to learn about who the Holy Spirit is. But now that I have been born-again for 34 years, I can look back with the joy of the Lord, and clearly see God's presence throughout my life, through the good times and the bad. I know that I am saved from John 3:16, because I BELIEVE on the only begotten Son of God, the Christ (John 20:31).

But I have the added confirmation that I have eternal life, by the presence of the blessed Holy Spirit in me. I love Jesus (even though I don't always live as I should). I love the Word of God (even though I don't always read it as I should). I love my fellow saints (even though I sometimes avoid them because they are mean). I love God's commandments (even though there have been times in my life when I wilfully lived in open sin). I have always felt Holy Spirit conviction over the sins in my life (Hebrews 12:6-8; Romans 8:9).

I don't feel Holy Spirit conviction over the shortcomings, failures and foolish decisions I've made in life, because those things are a natural part of being a human being, and God doesn't expect me to be perfect. In fact, it was all those mistakes, foolish decisions, mistakes and shortcomings that has enabled God to greatly bless and use my website ministry to reach others for Jesus Christ. God uses humble nobodies, because then He gets all the credit!!! So it is not my life that confirms I am saved, but the indwelling Holy Spirit. No one should worry or try to live right to feel saved, that is very wrong to do. Clearly, no one is saved who is wrong on repentance and the Gospel.

Romans 6:1, “What shall we say then? Shall we continue in sin, that grace may abound?” You may have the Holy Spirit in you, and still choose to live like the Devil your whole life (like Samson, Demas, Lot and Solomon did), but the indwelling Holy Spirit will convict you about those sins, and you will be of all men most miserable. That is all I think John is saying in his epistle. But no this, WORKS have no place at any point in receiving God's gift of salvation. Believers SHOULD live godly (Titus 2:12), but the Bible doesn't say that we MUST or WILL live godly in Christ Jesus. Thank you for reading my blogs.

How Wrong Can A Preacher Be On God's Simple Plan Of Salvation And Be Saved?

By the phrase "fallen from grace" in Galatians 5:4, the Apostle Paul is simply saying that the Galatians have missed the only bus going to Heaven. God's grace is the only way to be saved! Ephesians 2:8-9, "For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast."

Here is a helpful excellent sermon, by Pastor Afshin Yaghtin of the New Covenant Baptist Church in Spokane, Washington. The sermon is titled: "The 'Repent Of Your Sins' Heresy."

In Galatians 1:6, Paul said that the Galatians had "removed" themselves from the Gospel unto "another gospel." NO ONE is born-again who is trusting in another gospel.

Albeit, I do understand your question. Where do we draw the line between who is saved and who is not? How wrong can a preacher be on God's plan of salvation and be saved? That is a great question!

We read in Acts 15:1, "And certain men which came down from Judaea taught the brethren, and said, Except ye be circumcised after the manner of Moses, ye cannot be saved." This false teaching confused the brethren (Christians). They got into a big theological debate, wondering if a man who believes on Jesus Christ is really saved if he hasn't been circumcized according to Mosaic law. So the matter was brought before the apostles, and this was their answer in Acts 15:24, "Forasmuch as we have heard, that certain which went out from us have troubled you with words, subverting your souls, saying, Ye must be circumcised, and keep the law: to whom we gave no such commandment:"

So, clearly, the religious teachers in Acts 15:1 were in fact FALSE PROPHETS!!! The resounding answers is: "No, a person does not have to keep the law to be saved." What is the law? It is the Ten Commandments. Thou shalt not steal. Thou shalt not kill. Thou shalt not commit adultery. Thou shalt not take the name of the Lord in vain. Thou shalt not covet, et cetera. How then is keeping the law any different than turning away from one's sinful ways to be saved? It is the same thing.

If a man must cease from fornicating or stealing to be saved, then he is being required to KEEP THE MOSAIC LAW. Romans 3:19-20, "Now we know that what things soever the law saith, it saith to them who are under the law: that every mouth may be stopped, and all the world may become guilty before God. Therefore by the deeds of the law there shall no flesh be justified in his sight: for by the law is the knowledge of sin." The law was given for the primary purpose of giving mankind THE KNOWLEDGE OF SIN.

We learn in Galatians 3:24-26, "Wherefore the law was our schoolmaster to bring us unto Christ, that we might be justified by faith. But after that faith is come, we are no longer under a schoolmaster. For ye are all the children of God by faith in Christ Jesus."

The Bible is abundantly clear that NO ONE has ever been, nor ever will be, saved by KEEPING GOD'S LAW. Nor has anyone ever been saved by PARTIAL FAITH IN CHRIST, plus WORKS. All humanity are guilty sinners, as we just read. The Old Testament LAW shows us our sinnership, and then brings us to CHRIST in the New Testament to be saved by grace.
“The law tells me how crooked I am. Grace comes along and straightens me out.“ —Billy Sunday
Kindly, Pastor James Melton ASS-U-MEs that repentance is a change of mind about sin that will result in a change of behavior. Sadly, this is exactly what Campus Church at Pensacola Christian College errantly teaches. Pastor Jeff Redlin (their senior pastor at Campus Church) is angry at me, refusing to allow me to attend their church anymore, because I called them out on their heresy. It is a very big deal. RIGHT DOCTRINE MATTERS!

The big problem is that by associating a change of behavior with God's free gift of eternal life, it misleads many people to think that they are not really saved, unless their behavior has changed. So this compels people to try to avoid sinning to prove that they are saved. It confuses people. It instills fear and worry in them, wondering if they've really born-again because of the sin in their life (which we ALL have).

I heard infidel pastor, Paul Washer (a devout Calvinist), say that his own mother worried that she is not saved because of sin in her life. Her preacher son foolishly told her that her worry was proof of salvation. That is ridiculous! Judas felt bad, so bad that he gave back the 30 pieces of silver, but Judas still died in his sins and went to Hell forever.

To say that WORKS are required to prove that you're really saved, is just another clever way of saying that you have to have WORKS to be saved. There's no difference! So for James Melton to teach that a saved person WILL have works (a changed life), is the same as requiring works to be saved.

How can a preacher be saved who requires water baptism for salvation? That is a false gospel. That means all Church of Christ, Mormons, Jehovah's Witnesses, Seventh-Day Adventists and Roman Catholics are not saved, because they all require water baptism to get to Heaven.

It is no different when a bad pastor like James Melton, Marty Herron, Steve Pettit, John MacArthur, Ray Comfort, Gary Walton or 'UNSHACKLED' radio (by Pacific Garden Mission), perversely teach that you must repent "of your sins," by turning away from the old ways and forsaking a lifestyle of sinning to get to Heaven. They are LIARS!

Kindly said, how can those men be saved when they are wrong on God's plan of salvation? They will all lie to deceive, by claiming that salvation is by grace alone, through faith alone, in Christ alone, but then they contradict themselves by teaching that if you don't have works in your life, your faith is not genuine, it is not real, and you were never saved at all.

What James Melton errantly preaches is the same as what the Seventh-Day Adventist cult teaches. They have a very different view of faith than what the Bible teaches. In the Bible, faith simply means to trust in Christ, but look what Miss Ellen G. White (SDA prophetess errantly teaches). ...
“That so-called faith in Christ which professes to release men from the obligation of obedience to God, is not faith, but presumption. 'By grace are ye saved through faith.' But 'faith, if it hath not works, is dead.'” ~SOURCE: Ellen G. White, Steps To Christ, p. 61.
So “faith” according to Ellen White is not simply trusting upon the Gospel to be saved. In addition, Miss White teaches that faith encompasses all of the obligations of living the Christian life. The Bible says that a faith without works is “dead,” but it is still faith. A dead faith is still faith! In other words, if people don't see holiness in you, then they won't be convinced of your faith, because it is a dead faith; however, God still honors your faith in His only begotten Son, and you cannot ever lose eternal life.

Pastor James Melton is in agreement with the cults! All of the pseudo-Christian cults teach to turn from sins to be saved. ...
So to answer the question of: "How wrong can a preacher be on God's plan of salvation and be saved?," the answer can only be, Biblically: The moment that a preacher (or anyone) adds anything to the finished redemptive work of Jesus Christ—namely, Christ's death on the cross, burial and bodily resurrection from the dead the third day—he is not saved, nor ever has been saved. The only prerequisite to being saved is that you realize your need as a guilty sinner, so that you will BELIEVE ON THE LORD JESUS CHRIST and be saved (Acts 16:30-31; John 6:28-29).

The 'Repent Of Your Sins' Heresy

Satan Is A Master Counterfeiter

Matthew 7:13-15, “Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat: Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it. Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.”

2nd Corinthians 11:3-4, “But I fear, lest by any means, as the serpent beguiled Eve through his subtilty, so your minds should be corrupted from the simplicity that is in Christ. For if he that cometh preacheth another Jesus, whom we have not preached, or if ye receive another spirit, which ye have not received, or another gospel, which ye have not accepted, ye might well bear with him.”

Admittedly, they do seem saved, but so do Seventh-Day Adventists (Calvinists), Church of Christ (Calvinists), Lutherans (Baptismal Regeneration), Presbyterians (Calvinists) and Lordship Salvationists (Calvinists). I watched a Mormon sermon yesterday and it sounded like a Baptist church. Mormons ONLY use the King James Bible! You can verify that online. Mormons sing just like Baptists. A naïve person could easily think that Mormonism is Christianity, if they didn't understand sound doctrine from the Word of God.

I was thinking last night about counterfeit money. The goal of the counterfeiter is to make the fake money as close to authentic money as possible, to deceive people. The Devil does the same thing with religion! Satan makes false religion look, feel and sound just like genuine Christianity, so close that the person unlearned in the Scripture couldn't discern the difference, and so they are deceived and damned (Matthew 7:13-15; 2nd Corinthians 11:3-4).

I was surprised to find mainstream this website that sells counterfeit money that allegedly looks realistic. Why doesn't the government stop them? Go figure! Dear reader, I don't want you to be deceived by the Devil. God's standard for salvation is THE GOSPEL OF JOHN. John 20:31, “But these are written, that ye might believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God; and that believing ye might have life through his name. God authored the Gospel of John for the specific purpose of showing humanity how to have eternal life.

There is no mention in John of confessing, following, surrendering, committing, praying, calling, serving, running, turning or repenting to obtain God's free gift of eternal life. The only requirement taught is to BELIEVE ON JESUS. John 6:28-29, “When said they unto him, What shall we do, that we might work the works of God? Jesus answered and said unto them, This is the work of God, that ye believe on him whom he hath sent.

John chapters 19 and 20 teach Christ's death on the cross, His burial and subsequent bodily physical resurrection three days later . This is THE GOSPEL (i.e., the GOOD NEWS) according to 1st Corinthians 15:1-4, “Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand; By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain. For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures: Any guilty sinner who believes (places their confidence in) this Good News is saved immediately, irrevocably and permanently. Getting saved is that simple.

Tragically, millions of false churches around the world base their counterfeit plan of damnation upon obscure passages of Scripture, while totally ignoring and contradicting the Gospel of John. As a general rule we ought never use an obscure passage of Scripture to contradict a clear one. The Gospel of John is clear, salvation is WITHOUT WORKS!!!
  • Roman Catholics errantly teach that salvation requires FAITH AND WORKS.
  • Calvinists errantly teach that FAITH WILL WORK.
  • The Bible teaches that faith is WITHOUT WORKS (Romans 4:5).
Please dear reader, do not allow Satan and his sinister ministers to deceive you! Hell is hot, life is short and eternity is a long time!!!

The Devil is a master counterfeiter! Tragically, BILLIONS of Roman Catholics, Orthodox Catholics, Mormons, Jehovah's Witnesses, Lutherans, Seventh-Day Adventists, Calvinists, Church of Christ, United Methodists, Unitarian Universalists, Bahai Faith, Presbyterians, Baptists, Scientologists, Christian Science, Judaizes and other infidels have been DECEIVED by the Devil's concerning how to get to Heaven. Lordship Salvation is of the Devil. Calvinism is of the Devil. Works to be saved before, during or after salvation are of the Devil.

Today could be the last day of your life!
Have you been born-again?

Beware Of Deadly False Prophets Today!

Galatians 1:6-9, “I marvel that ye are so soon removed from him that called you into the grace of Christ unto another gospel: Which is not another; but there be some that trouble you, and would pervert the gospel of Christ. But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed. As we said before, so say I now again, If any man preach any other gospel unto you than that ye have received, let him be accursed.”

Today's churches are in deep trouble! I recently heard a pastor bragging on Pastor Adrian Rogers, former 3-term chairman of the apostate Southern Baptist Convention (SBC). Kindly said , Rogers was an illegitimate infidel of the faith, who errantly required lost sinners to invite Jesus into their life, turning away from sinful behavior, making Christ absolute Lord and yielding total control of one's life to Christ to be saved. THAT IS WORKS!!! Folks, that is NOT the Gospel, not even close. Eternal life is a free gift from God, obtained through faith alone by ANY NEEDY SINNER WHO BELIEVES in the Good News (Gospel) of Jesus Christ crucified, buried and risen the third day (1st Corinthians 15:1-4). If Adrian Rogers was saved, then the Holy Bible is full of crap, because nowhere in the Gospel of John (which is God's Gospel tract according to John 20:31) are we taught to invite Christ into our life as supreme Lord, turn away from sinful living and live a changed life to get to Heaven...

And on that note, Pastor James Melton is just as guilty of preaching another gospel as Adrian Rogers, and cannot be saved either, lest the Word of God be uninspired garbage and unreliable. James Melton foolishly ASS-U-MEs that Bible repentance means a change of mind concerning how we live our life, but he is WRONG. Bible repentance (Greek noun: metanoia) is simply "a change of mind." God deliberately didn't tell us what that change of mind is about, using an all-inclusive term that is open-ended. In other words, you must change your mind about whatever it is that is hindering you from BELIEVING ON JESUS to be saved.

That is the great message preached throughout the Gospel of John!!! John 6:28-29, "Then said they unto him, What shall we do, that we might work the works of God? Jesus answered and said unto them, This is the work of God, that ye believe on him whom he hath sent." Please don't miss Jesus' clear answer on how to work the WORKS of God to get to Heaven: "BELIEVE ON HIM."

John 11:48, "If we let him thus alone, all men will believe on him: and the Romans shall come and take away both our place and nation." You get saved by BELIEVING ON THE NAME OF JESUS, THE GOOD NEWS (GOSPEL) OF JESUS CHRIST CRUCIFIED ON A CROSS, WHO DIED, WAS BURIED AND PHYSICSLLY RESURRECTED THE THIRD DAY FROM THE DEAD!!!

Nothing more is required nor permitted by God the Father to have eternal life. So where in the world did Adrian Rogers, James Melton, John MacArthur, Steve Pettit, Chuck Phelps, Bob Jones University, Pacific Garden Mission's UNSHACKLED radio series, Gary Walton, Sam Horn, Chip Ingram, Billy Graham, Franklin Graham, William Lane Craig, Pat Robertson, Joe Hansen, Jared Baldwin, Beth Moore, Joyce Meyer, Moody Ministries, John Hagee, Charles Stanley, Joel Osteen, Rick Warren, Steven Furtick, J.D. Greear, Marty Herron, Paul Washer, Ray Comfort, and other hellbound (accursed by God) fools and devil-preachers, get the unbiblical FALSE idea that to be saved you must ALSO invite Jesus into your life, turn away from sinful living (keep the law) with all your heart, surrender all to Christ, run the race faithfully to the end, count the cost and pay the price, live a lifestyle of repentance, prove that your faith to be saved is real by performing works, turn away from a lifestyle of sin, give up the old sinful ways, commit your life to Christ as supreme Lord of your life, and follow Christ faithfully no matter what the cost?

If you have any doubts about these ministers of unrighteousness, please send me a message and the name of the preacher you want to learn about, and I will send you the article which I have already written to expose ALL OF THEM as guilty malicious corrupters of the GRACE OF GOD!!! NO ONE is saved who is wrong on repentance.

Philippians 1:17b, "...knowing that I am set for the defence of the gospel."

Matthew 7:13-15, “Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat: Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it. Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.”

Romans Chapter Ten Does Not Refer To The Salvation Of Physical Israel

Romans 10:9-11, “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. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. For the scripture saith, Whosoever believeth on him shall not be ashamed.

There is a horrible false teaching circulating on the internet and in many churches today, which errantly teaches that Romans chapter 10 has nothing to do with the spiritual salvation of the Jews (and the Gentiles too for that matter). This Zionist heresy claims that Romans chapter 10 only refers to the future physical salvation of the nation of Israel, and not to individual Jews. I couldn't disagree more, for several reason:
  1. Paul was not writing to Israel, but to believers. The Epistle of Romans according to Romans 1:7 was written "To all that be in Rome, beloved of God, called to be saints: Grace to you and peace from God our Father, and the Lord Jesus Christ." Paul was not writing to Israel, but to believers. Paul makes his appeal to them to preach the Gospel to the unsaved Jews:
    Romans 10:14-15, "How then shall they [the Jews] call on him in whom they have not believed? and how shall they believe in him of whom they have not heard? and how shall they hear without a preacher? And how shall they preach, except they be sent? as it is written, How beautiful are the feet of them that preach the gospel of peace, and bring glad tidings of good things!"
    Clearly, Paul is recruiting soulwinners from Rome to preach the Gospel to Israel. Certainly, Romans 10 is about eternal salvation. The only salvation which God offers to blind Israel today is to be graffed back into to their olive tree by faith. Romans 11:23, "And they also, if they abide not still in unbelief, shall be graffed in: for God is able to graff them in again." But all Jews who refuse to believe on Jesus Christ will go to burn in Hell forever, without hope. There has always been only ONE plan of salvation, which is through faith in Christ. Acts 10:43, "To him give all the prophets witness, that through his name whosoever believeth in him shall receive remission of sins." People in the Old Testament (both Jews and Gentiles) were saved by faith alone (Genesis 15:6; Habakkuk 2:4).
  2. The entire chapter of Romans 10 is definitely about spiritual salvation. I strongly disagree with those who think Romans 10 has nothing to do with being born-again. The first few verses of Romans 10 plainly reveal that the author is absolutely talking about salvation. Romans 10:1-4, "Brethren, my heart's desire and prayer to God for Israel is, that they might be saved. For I bear them record that they have a zeal of God, but not according to knowledge. For they being ignorant of God's righteousness, and going about to establish their own righteousness, have not submitted themselves unto the righteousness of God. For Christ is the end of the law for righteousness to every one that believeth." The apostle Paul is saying that Judaism (keeping the Mosaic law) is a false plan of salvation. Paul addresses this same falsehood of Judaism in the Epistle of Galatians (Galatians 3:1-3; 5:4). Paul asserts in Romans 10:4, "Christ is the end of the law for righteousness to every one that believeth." Romans 4:5, "But to him that worketh not, but believeth on him that justifieth the ungodly, his faith is counted for righteousness." Paul's earnest desire was for those Jews who were trying to merit Heaven through works (keeping the Mosaic law), to repent (change their mind) and come to Christ by faith alone to be saved. This is very clearly the message of Romans 10. Paul's desire was for Judaizers to get saved. Romans 10:5-10 contrasts the righteousness which comes from keeping the law (which no man has ever achieved because NO ONE can perfectly keep the law), versus the righteousness of God which is by faith alone in Jesus Christ (Philippians 3:9). Salvation is a matter of the heart, to "BELIEVE ON HIM" (John 6:28-29, 40). John 6:47, "Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me hath everlasting life."
  3. Those who claim that Romans 10 only applies to the physical salvation of the nation of Israel are basing an entire doctrine on a single passage of Scripture. I like what Pastor Curtis Hutson (1934-1995) said: "A good rule to follow when interpreting the Bible is to never use an obscure passage to contradict a clear one." Romans 10:9-10 is an obscure passage. That is, it raises questions and can be interpreted different ways. The Gospel of John according to John 20:31 is God's Gospel tract, "But these are written, that ye might believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God; and that believing ye might have life through his name." Nowhere in the Gospel of John is the reader taught to confess, call, pray, repent of sins, invite Christ into our life, get water baptized, run the race, follow Christ as "Lord," nor anything else, except to "BELIEVE ON HIM" (Jesus Christ). In chapter's 19 and 20 we read about Christ's death on the cross, burial and bodily resurrection, which is "the Gospel" according to 1st Corinthians 15:1-4, by which all who believe are saved. Thus, we can logically conclude that in Romans 10:9-10 Paul was simply saying that a believer confesses with their mouth as a result of having believed in their heart. Jesus said in Luke 6:45, “A good man out of the good treasure of his heart bringeth forth that which is good; and an evil man out of the evil treasure of his heart bringeth forth that which is evil: for of the abundance of the heart his mouth speaketh.” Out of the heart the mouth speaketh. That is all that I believe Paul is simply saying in Romans 10:9-10. We must be careful not to add words to what the Bible plainly says (Proverbs 30:5-6). Romans 10:4 and Romans 10:10 are clear and plain that a person is saved by BELIEVING IN THEIR HEART on the Lord Jesus Christ (Acts 16:30-31). The proponents of the heresy that Romans 10 only refers to the future salvation of the NATION of Israel, claim that since confession is required to be saved here, that this passage cannot refer to spiritual salvation by faith alone in Christ. However, as I have just shown you from the Bible, Paul wasn't requiring confession with your mouth to be saved; but rather, he was simply saying that we confess Christ audibly as saints because of the faith in our heart. Not one verse in Romans chapter 10, nor anywhere else in the Bible that I can find, teaches that Jews will need to publicly confess Christ in the future for their physical nation to be saved. That is a strange doctrine!!! Jesus said that out of the abundance of a man's heart the mouth speaketh. Again, a good rule to follow when interpreting the Bible is to never use an obscure passage to contradict a clear one.
  4. God is not a respecter of person. In my humble opinion, it is a mistake to say that Romans 10 only applies to Israel. Romans 10:12-13, "For there is no difference between the Jew and the Greek: for the same Lord over all is rich unto all that call upon him. For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved." Clearly, God is no respecter of persons and does not differentiate between Jews and Gentiles (Galatians 3:28-29). God desires for all men to be saved, and will save WHOSOEVER believes (relies upon) the "Good News" (Gospel) of the Lord Jesus Christ. Again, the Apostle Paul didn't write his epistle of Romans to Israel, but to all the saints in Rome (Romans 1:7). In Romans 10:1 Paul said, “Brethren, my heart's desire and prayer to God for Israel is, that they might be saved." Notice that Paul didn't use the pronoun “ye,” but “they.” He is grammatically writing in the third person here, speaking about the Jews, not to the Jews. Paul desires for Israel to be spiritually saved.
  5. God will restore the physical nation of Israel when Jesus Christ returns after the 7-year Tribulation. God raised up Babylon to destroy Jerusalem in 586 BC, ending the kingdom of Israel. We learn in Hosea 3:4-5 that God will someday in the future restore the physical nation of Israel, when a remnant of Jews turn toward God through faith in Jesus Christ. God destroyed the physical nation of Israel because of His people's spiritual harlotry with idols. First with the destruction of the northern kingdom by Assyria in 722 BC; and then in 586 BC by Babylon. But God is not done with the nation of Israel, He will restore the physical nation someday. However, only born-again Jews and Gentile (who are all ONE in Christ the Bible says in Galatians 3:28-29) will inhabit the rebuilt nation of Israel. No Christ-rejecting Jew will ever enter into God's Kingdom, nor enter into Heaven, nor enter into the Promised Land in the future; but rather, they will be cast by the angels into the Lake of Fire forever (Revelation 20:11-15; 21:8). Jews do NOT have a separate or different plan of salvation than do the Gentiles. Acts 10:43, “To him give all the prophets witness, that through  his name whosoever believeth in him shall receive remission of sins.” ALL the prophets testified of salvation through faith in the coming Messiah.
  6. To say that Romans 10 only applies to the future salvation of Israel is to say that there are two Gospels. This doctrine is strange indeed. Proponents of the lie that Romans 10 has nothing to do with spiritual salvation, believe that future Jews will be required by God to audibly and publicly CONFESS with their mouth Jesus Christ to facilitate the salvation of the NATION of Israel. But the Bible does NOT teach that at all. Hosea 3:4-5, “For the children of Israel shall abide many days without a king, and without a prince, and without a sacrifice, and without an image, and without an ephod, and without teraphim: Afterward shall the children of Israel return, and seek the LORD their God, and David their king; and shall fear the LORD and his goodness in the latter days.” God will restore the true nation of Israel when the Jews repent of their unbelief and BELIEVE on the Lord Jesus Christ. They will not have a different plan of salvation than Gentiles or Jews do presently. There has always been only one plan of salvation, which is through faith in Christ (Acts 10:43; Romans 4:4-7).
Romans 10 makes it clear that a man is saved by believing the Gospel in his heart. We know that public confession is not necessary to be saved, because among the chief rulers "many believed on Him" to be saved in John 12:42-43, "but they did not confess Him" for fear of persecution from the religious Pharisees. The Bible says they loved the praise of men more than the praise of God, but they were still saved, because they believed on Christ. One proponent of the Romans 10 Israel heresy, insisted to me that those chief rulers didn't really get saved in John 12:42-43. Dear reader, that is preposterous! The Bible says many believed on Him. If you don't think they got saved, then what would be the purpose of John telling us they BELIEVED? Yes, they most certainly did get saved. And if you don't believe they got saved, maybe you're not saved, because the only thing which God requires to get to Heaven is simple childlike faith in the Good News of Christ crucified, buried and risen the third day. Dear friend, one big thing that I have learned in my 42 years of being a born-again believer is that the Bible is very simple. Anytime that someone starts complicating the Word of God, you know that they have got it WRONG!!!

We can only logically conclude that "confess with thy mouth" in Romans 10:9-10 refers to confessing Jesus because we have believed in our heart. In other words, we don't confess Christ audibly to be saved; but rather, because we are saved. This is NOT required to be saved; but rather, it is simply a natural thing that many people choose to do. What if a person was mute, and couldn't speak? Does that mean they cannot be saved? Does that mean God makes an exception for them? That would be silly. There is and always has been, and always will be, only ONE GOSPEL. Galatians 1:6, “ I marvel that ye are so soon removed from him that called you into the grace of Christ unto another gospel:
 Which is not another; but there be some that trouble you, and would pervert the gospel of Christ.” As we just read, there is only ONE GOSPEL. If people had been saved differently in the Old Testament, then the Bible would have said so, but it doesn't. If people will be saved differently in the future, then the Bible would have said so, but it doesn't. It is ridiculous to separate the future physical restoration of Israel, from the saving Gospel of grace through faith alone in Jesus Christ. God will not save any unbelieving Jews! They will be utterly destroyed and cast into Hell forever. Romans 2:28-29 is very clear that only born-again Jews are true Jews in God's sight:
Romans 2:28-29, “For he is not a Jew, which is one outwardly; neither is that circumcision, which is outward in the flesh: But he is a Jew, which is one inwardly; and circumcision is that of the heart, in the spirit, and not in the letter; whose praise is not of men, but of God.”
Unbelieving Jews are mere sinners bound for Hell. Saved Jews are of the spiritual seed of Abraham, and so are ALL Gentiles of the Spiritual seed of Abraham. Galatians 3:29, “And if ye be Christ's, then are ye Abraham's seed, and heirs according to the promise.

Beware of Zionist heresy (both political and theological) that idolizes manmade Israel since 1948. God promised to restore the nation of future Israel when the Jews repent toward God, which hasn't happened yet, and won't happen until Christ's Second Coming (Hosea 3:4-5).
No unsaved Jew will ever go to Heaven, nor see the Promised Land in the future. Romans 10:9-10 refers to being born-again, by simply trusting Jesus Christ as one's Savior, believing that He died on the cross for our sins, was buried, and then miraculously resurrected three days later. This is the Gospel, the Good News, or Glad Tidings, by which all who BELIEVE IT are immediately, irrevocably and permanently saved (1st Corinthians 15:1-4).

Just because the Apostle Paul mentions, that those who believe on Christ to be saved make a public declaration of their faith with their mouth, doesn't in any way contradict or change God's simple plan of salvation. I agree with Pastor Max Younce's interpretation of this passage. The Jews had been warned by the wicked unsaved religious Pharisees, that anyone who confessed Christ would be kicked out of the synagogue (John 12:42-43). So Paul in Romans 10:9-10 is countering that evil rule, simply saying that it is normal for a person to confess with their mouth, their faith in Christ after they've been saved, and Paul encourages them TO DO SO. Every child of God should confess publicly our faith in Jesus Christ. But if we don't, we are still secure and safe in God's promise of eternal life, which is a free gift (Romans 5:15-18).

Paul wasn't adding a new requirement to the Gospel just for the Jews, nor was he referring to the physical salvation of the future nation of Israel, which is absurd. It is very clear from Romans 10:1-4 that Paul is absolutely speaking about getting saved here, individually. It is bizarre to me, that anyone would totally ignore this beautiful passage of Scripture in Romans 10:1-4, to say that verses 9 and 10 have nothing to do with being born-again.

The apostle goes on in versus 10 through 15 to say that a lost sinner ultimately cannot be saved unless they have a preacher. Lost sinners need THE GOSPEL!!! Again, how in the world can anyone ignore all this truth and claim that Romans 10 only applies to the physical salvation in the nation of Israel? Zionism rots the brain! Please run from the retarded Zionist garbage circulating on the internet, religious colleges and in many churches today. Jews are no better than Gentiles, nor does God have a more earnest desire in His heart for Jews to be saved than Gentiles. The inhabitants of Heaven rejoice just as loud and exuberantly when an African American gets saved than some Jewish rabbi. God is no respecter of persons!

What about Romans 10:12-13, “For there is no difference between the Jew and the Greek: for the same Lord over all is rich unto all that call upon him. For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.” When I got saved at age 13, I called upon the Lord in my soul. That is, I asked Jesus to save me, and He gratefully did. Now, I was saved before I even cried out to Christ, because I already believed on Him just seconds before. The word “call” here doesn't mean to pray. In old English it was standard for businesses to say: “Please call again!” That simply meant that they hoped you would return and give them the privilege to serve you.

God wants to save all sinners (2nd Peter 3:9), even the vilest of mass-murdering criminals. Christ died for the ungodly (Romans 5:6-9). That means He died for you too! It would be God's privilege to save even the worst sinner upon the face of the earth. But the only way anyone can be saved is through faith in Jesus Christ. 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. Romans 10:13-17 simply reinforces the truth in Romans 10:9-10, that in order for a person to come to Christ, they must believe in their heart. You don't get saved when you call, but when you believe. However, it is a normal response to hearing the Gospel that someone would be compelled to call upon the name of the Lord to be saved. But truthfully, they got saved the first moment that they BELIEVED, which is exactly what the entire Gospel of John teaches (John 6:28-29; 40).

Acts 2:41, “Then they that gladly received his word were baptized: and the same day there were added unto them about three thousand souls.” Those 3,000 sinners were instantly saved simply when they GLADY RECEIVED HIS WORD. What word? Well of course, THE GOSPEL which the Apostle Peter preached unto them on the Day of Pentecost. Galatians 3:2, “This only would I learn of you, Received ye the Spirit by the works of the law, or by the hearing of faith? I love that verse! I love it! I love it! I love it!!! The Apostle Paul in his epistle to the churches of Galatian, just wanted to know one thing from them—How did you get saved? Paul asked them how they received the indwelling Holy Spirit (i.e., how did they get saved). Was it by the KEEPING OF THE LAW (aka, “turn away from your sins to be saved” lie); or was it by the HEARING OF FAITH? Boy, I sure love the simplicity of the Gospel. What Paul means is that a sinner gets saved by simply placing their faith in the Good News (Gospel) of Jesus Christ when we hear it preached.

What saith the Scripture? Hebrews 4:1-2, “Let us therefore fear, lest, a promise being left us of entering into his rest, any of you should seem to come short of it. For unto us was the gospel preached, as well as unto them: but the word preached did not profit them, not being mixed with faith in them that heard it. For 40 long years the Jews heard the Gospel preached unto them by Moses, but they didn't have any faith in what they heard, so they perished in the Wilderness and sadly went to Hell. I love these simple passages of Scripture, which show us how easy it is to be saved to go to Heaven. Can anyone actually claim that Romans chapter 10 has nothing to do with God's gift of eternal life? Romans 10:4 plainly says, “For Christ is the end of the law for righteousness to every one that believeth. This Bible verse applies to every human being that has ever been born!!!

Romans 10:14b asks the$64,000 question: “and how shall they hear without a preacher?” Romans 10:15a, “And how shall they preach, except they be sent?” Oh, what a responsibility we have as God's redeemed children to preach the Gospel. We are Christ's ambassadors to this evil world (2nd Corinthians 5:20-21). Literally, we represent the King of kings and the Lord of lords. Paul is recruiter soulwinners in Rome. Paul is stirring up the saints at Rome, to go preach the Gospel to Israel, so they may be saved by faith alone in Jesus Christ, who is the end of the law to them that BELIEVE. I am frustrated by those heretics who totally disregard Roman chapter 10, claiming that it only applies to the physical salvation of the nation of Israel, and not getting people saved. They simply cannot back up their false claims with the inspired King James Bible...
Romans 10:16-21, “But they have not all obeyed the gospel. For Esaias saith, Lord, who hath believed our report? So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God. But I say, Have they not heard? Yes verily, their sound went into all the earth, and their words unto the ends of the world. But I say, Did not Israel know? First Moses saith, I will provoke you to jealousy by them that are no people, and by a foolish nation I will anger you. But Esaias is very bold, and saith, I was found of them that sought me not; I was made manifest unto them that asked not after me. But to Israel he saith, All day long I have stretched forth my hands unto a disobedient and gainsaying people.”
As we just read, the prophet Isaiah boldly reached out in love to the Jews ALL DAY LONG with the truth, but they were disobedient and gainsaying (they challenged and disputed everything Isaiah preached to them). Here is the Old Testament passage which is quoted by Paul:
Isaiah 65:2-3, “I have spread out my hands all the day unto a rebellious people, which walketh in a way that was not good, after their own thoughts; A people that provoketh me to anger continually to my face; that sacrificeth in gardens, and burneth incense upon altars of brick;”
The Israelites were sinfully practicing idol worship. They were a rebellious people. They rejected the Gospel. They all went to Hell, those who did not trust in Christ. As you can clearly see for yourself, Romans chapter 10 is all about spiritual salvation, and not the salvation of a physical nation. There is no physical salvation except to those who accept God's spiritual salvation first, which is only obtained through childlike faith in Jesus Christ (Romans 10:3-4; Philippians 3:9). Amen and amen!

I see this happen so often, where people who don't understand the Word of God, wrest it to fit their own flawed understanding. Since Romans 10:9-13 seems to present a different Gospel than the Gospel of John, some Bible students errantly conclude that this must be a different plan of salvation for future Israel. Folks, that is bad Bible interpretation. If Romans 10 were only applicable to the future salvation of the physical nation of Israel, then the Bible would have plainly told us so, but it doesn't! You have to wrest, stretch, bend and pervert the Holy Bible in order to conclude that Romans chapter 10 is not about being born-again through faith alone in Jesus Christ. Pastor Curtis Hutson (1934-1995) is so right:  "A good rule to follow when interpreting the Bible is to never use an obscure passage to contradict a clear one."

Although I tremendously admire Pastor Peter S. Ruckman (1921-2016), he was very wrong in some of his theology. Most notably, his teaching that people were saved by faith plus works in the Old Testament. Nothing could be any further from the truth! Acts 10:43 plainly teaches that ALL THE PROPHETS give witness to remission of sins through faith alone in Christ. Romans 4:4 is very clear that if salvation at any time in human civilization has, or ever will be, by works, then God would OWE that person salvation (which means it could not be by grace). Well, we know that salvation has always been, and always will be, solely by God's wondrous mercy (not giving us what we deserve) and grace (giving us what we don't deserve).

So, if you understand this foundational truth (that future Jews during the Tribulation period will be saved THE SAME way that all saints have been throughout history), then it makes no sense why anyone would claim Romans 10 is not about the same salvation. Thank you for reading my blogs. I sincerely love you in Christ, whoever you may be. Jesus is precious!!!
