That about sums up the call on my life and this ministry. From the time I was a small child, I felt the presence of the Lord in my life. I always felt some kind of, what I now know to be a “call” on my life even as a small child under the age of five. Around the fourth grade I started to become compelled to start writing and I didn’t know why. I would spend summer days in my parent’s basement writing children’s stories. One manuscript my mom sent to Random House Publishers in order to encourage me to continue to write. The book was called “Colonal Bubblebrain” and it was about a military guy who got stranded on an island as it outlined his many silly antics to survive. Several weeks after my mom sent it to Random House, I received a letter back from a very kind executive at Random House who said he actually read the manuscript and enjoyed it. He mentioned some things he particularly enjoyed, so I knew he read it. Then he stated that at this time they were not publishing children’s books, but he encouraged me to continue writing and follow my desire to do so. He was probably a Christian. God instills in you at birth, what it is you were created to do to fulfill His purpose in creating you for such a time as this.
In this newsletter, I am going to illustrate how salvation works because the way it is taught today shows we do not have even the basic down. I am going to illustrate how it is obtained biblically and the Lord’s manifestations of grace in my life to illustrate how the saving kind of grace works. His grace is sufficient, but our view of the kind of grace that saves through the wilderness of life is small and narrow and causes us not to experience the God of the word or His saving kind of grace in our weakness. I am going to outline the biblical pattern of salvation as found in both the Old and New Testament because the pattern runs throughout the whole bible. The early disciples used the Old Testament to preach the word that added to the church daily, thousands of people. On the website that the Lord has me writing, the nation of Israel has surpassed the United States this year in the number of people logging on from any nation and coming to Christ and being grafted back in. In 2017 they were the 5th ranking nation logging onto the site. In 2018 they were the 3rd largest nation logging on and this year, in 2019, they ranked number one, surpassing the US in the number of people from Israel seeking the truth and coming to Christ. If you can’t preach the gospel using the Old Testament, you have the wrong gospel. It all points to Christ. To God be all the glory as I just give out what He gives me and He leads people to the site. I get to see what they type in or the questions they ask that leads them to the site. You don’t need millions of dollars and airplanes to preach the gospel and reach the world. My site cost me around $40 a month and reaches more people and nations globally than any celebrity preacher living in a multimillion dollar house, flying around in their expensive jets, spreading a false gospel of self indulgence and damnable heresies. God uses the meek (teachable) to confound the wise and mighty in their own eyes. The job of the five fold ministry is to equip the body of Christ for their ministry, not to build up their own. You equip and they go out is the biblical call upon anyone in the five fold ministry. If you are not doing that, you are failing miserably, are not in the will of God and are part of the problem in revival not transpiring. We must get rid of our celebrity preachers and music ministries that entertain. Jesus will not share the glory with another. Church must be about Jesus and exalting Him and not self and our talents or ministries. The “insert your name ministries” title has got to end. We must decrease so He can increase. People are going to church to be entertained with flesh patting and ear tickling messages that have them remaining in their sin instead of delivering them from it as Jesus died to do. People leave church if they have this “entertain me” or “I am a spectator” idealology if they don’t like the singing or pastor’s message. Thus the pastors compromise for money and numbers to appease the people instead of obeying the Lord. Their tax exempt status, full collection plate and lack of faith in God’s provision deters them from preaching the whole gospel that brings conviction, Godly sorrow over sins and deliverance from them. We have a gospel that preaches how to have your best life yet instead of dying to self and picking up your cross and following Jesus. We are not to be friends with the world or you become an enemy of God. It is an all about me and what I can get gospel instead of one of service to the King and each other. Thus look at the condition of the United States today. We have a porn epidemic even in the pulpits, abortion, failed marriages, broken homes, crimes, drugs, addictions, homosexuality, God being kicked out of schools and homes and sin abounding while evil men wax worse and worse because the church is as worldly and carnal as the world. Most people in the church who believe themselves to be “saved” are not biblically as the present day gospel is actually a stumbling block that causes people to sin and remain in their sin rather than deliver them from it as Jesus died to do.
The word Christian means follower of Christ, walking as He walked. It doesn’t mean you believe in Jesus historically and even what He died to do. Even the devil believes. Too many people call themselves Christian that do not fit the definition.
Stumbling Blocks In The Pulpit, TV, Radio and Pew
By Robert Weller
OFFENSES HAVE COME
The Son of man shall send forth his angels (messengers), and they shall gather out of his kingdom all things that offend, and them which do iniquity (lawless); And shall cast them into a furnace of fire: there shall be wailing and gnashing of teeth. Then shall the righteous shine forth as the sun in the kingdom of their Father. Who hath ears to hear, let him hear. Mat.13:41-43
Then said he unto the disciples, It is impossible (inevitable) but that offenses will come: but woe unto him, through whom they come! It were better for him that a millstone was hanged about his neck, and he was cast into the sea than that he should offend one of these little ones. Luke 17:1-2
The KJV frequently uses the word “OFFENSES”. It is from a Greek word that means “stumbling block”. It carries the idea of throwing something in front of a person to cause them to fall. In simple terms, it is describing a person that causes others to sin. The most obvious cause of sin is heresies that teach that a person can continue in known sin and still be saved. They may not come right out and say you can continue in known sin and still be saved, but the fruit of their false doctrine certainly implies it, like the once saved always saved damnable heresy. A less obvious cause of sin would be things like immodest dress, especially with women.
Many denominations are teaching their congregations to love the world and the things of the world. Others have turned the grace of God into a license to sin. Still others teach that you are saved if you believe in the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus, (which the devil also believes) and obedience is only for rewards. It is the last hour. Come Lord Jesus.
The church is predominantly apostate as 2 Thes. 2 describes right before Jesus returns to catch away His bride because of these stumbling blocks in the pulpit, on TV and radio who teach the once saved, always saved heresy that has people remaining in their sin because there is no eternal consequence for remaining in it. They don’t come right out and say you can remain in your sin and may even advise against sinning, but the fruit of the once saved always saved heresy is people remaining a slave to sin instead of being delivered from it as Jesus died to do. In their unbiblical world, all you need to do is confess and believe and you are good to go forever. No repentance required. No baptism required. No obedience required. No dying of self and sin required. No submission to Jesus as Lord is required to enter His kingdom where He rules as king. No sanctification required even though Jesus Himself said, “If you don’t allow Me to wash you, (your will is involved) you have no part with Me”. No part means no part. In their unbiblical world Jesus’ blood just covers up your sin just as the Old Testament blood of lambs did instead of delivering you from sin and its power over you. This is not biblical and it was taught by people misquoting the bible out of context, not knowing the definition of words, making up a doctrine based on half a sentence because of cherry picking only what they like that confirms their bias, or just not getting the whole point the Lord was trying to make or not knowing who the Lord was talking to and why. They are blind to the truth. These teachers and preachers are stumbling blocks to people that the Lord wants to bring into the saving knowledge of the truth. They are not empowered to be free of sin because they aren’t baptized in the Holy Spirit. They teach that you have all the Holy Spirit you will ever need when you first believe. Therefore, they have a form of Godliness but deny the power thereof. From such we are to turn away and not have them on TV or radio or a public platform duping the masses. Any platform that allows them to be a stumbling block to the masses causing them to remain in their sin, will be held accountable for the ones lost as well as those teaching these heresies. Their blood will be on your hands and you will have to give an account. They deny this power by telling people they already have it when they first believe. Acts 19, Paul asked believers if they have received the baptism of the Holy Spirit since they first believed. They replied that they had never heard of such a thing. Paul then baptizes them in water, where they are born again of water. Then he lays hands on them and they are baptized in the Holy Spirit. This same preacher who teaches that you have all the Holy Spirit you will ever need when you first believe, also teaches that the “born again of water” part Jesus was referring to was coming out of the mother’s birth sack at the first birth. With all the water baptisms or Michvas going on throughout the whole bible and no reference to this being your first birth emerging from the sack, this preacher deduced falsely that it wasn’t water baptism, ignoring countless water baptisms throughout the bible to come up with that. Spiritually blind (shaking head)! It amazes me! Jesus said born AGAIN of water and of the Holy Spirit. These are foundational teaching of the church and if you do not have the foundation right, the whole thing caves in and people fall away because “Christianity doesn’t work”. That is because they have no power because they have never been baptized in water and the Holy Spirit that enables and empowers you not to sin. They were told they already have it and this power was denied them. They have a form godliness.
From such we are to turn away, not listen to them, or give them a platform to dupe the masses that Jesus died for. In fact, the whole lie that entwines itself in this man’s ministry is that you have something that you do not biblically such as salvation or the baptism of the Holy Spirit. Saying a sinner’s prayer or asking Jesus into your heart are not found anywhere in the bible in order to be saved. Neither is give your life to Christ. We don’t give our life to Christ, we get our life from Christ. Repent and be baptized everyone of you is still the biblical answer to “What must we do to be saved”? So just because a minister leads people in a salvation prayer after a service, that doesn’t mean he is a true believer. He is just deceiving people and duping them into believing they are saved when they are not. He is deceiving them into thinking they possess something they do not. Satan appears as an angel of light and a minister of righteousness. The hardest people to get biblically born again are the ones who think they already are.
Immediately after Jesus was water baptized, He was baptized in the Holy Spirit and led by the Holy Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted by the devil. If Jesus needed this empowerment to endure temptation in His humanity, what makes us believe we don’t need it? Jesus was tempted in like manner as us and had to overcome in His humanity, not His divinity to give us an example of how it is done. When the sons of Levi matured and they were to move into the role of priest, they were water baptized in a Michva and then anointed with oil which is symbolic of the baptism of the Holy Spirit in order to perform the priestly duties. We too are to be priests on this earth. This biblical pattern is throughout the whole bible.
Everyone wants to bring up the thief on the cross to negate water baptism and I have addressed this before in other newsletters. This thief died under the old covenant. Paradise wasn’t heaven. Jesus said “This day you will be with me in paradise”, yet three days later after His resurrection He told Mary not to touch Him because He had not yet ascended to His Father. Paradise was a place in the earth where departed souls went prior to the cross. Jesus descended into this place, also called Abraham’s bosom, Sheol, Hades or the grave and preached to these departed souls for three days, took the keys to death and hell from the devil and led them out. Eternal life was extended back to these “believers” who died before the cross. No one went to heaven prior to the cross except maybe Elijah, Enoch etc. “Some were seen resurrected and walking around Matthew 27:52-53. So let’s stop looking for excuses and using the thief to do so to be disobedient the Lords command to be water baptized.
Foundational Teachings of the Church
1. Repentance from Dead Works to obtain blessing or favor from God that Jesus purchased with His blood. Example: Jesus’ blood plus your money delivers you from the curse of the law. Malachi is often misquoted to do so, calling the people God robbers if they don’t tithe when in fact it was the priests God was calling God robbers, not the people, because the priests were the ones not tithing and bringing food into the storehouse to feed the poor. Today the church leaders call the poor, fatherless, stranger in the land and widows, God robbers when they are the ones who are to be partaking of the priest’s tithe in the storehouse that would provide for them. Church leaders manipulate the word of God because they lack faith in God’s provision to provide for them. Any form of manipulation or control comes from a spirit of witchcraft. They lack the faith for provision that they insist you have. It is the church that is to be providing for the poor and God says He changes not in this regard. These scriptures pulled out of Malachi to manipulate people aren’t read in context asking who was God talking to and why. The whole book of Malachi is being spoken to the men regarding domestic abuse and the priests, not the people. God changes not in that the pastors or priests are to tithe or provide for the poor in our churches or they will be the ones cursed, not the people. The Lord said if you give to the poor, you give to God. Obviously if you do not give to the poor, you rob God. That is why the Lord called the priest, not the people, God robbers. The tithe was food and it was to be brought into the storehouse to feed the poor. If your church is not providing for the poor, you are under God’s curse, as God changes not in this.
2. Faith Toward God. Refer to #1. Lack of faith in God’s provision for whatever it is you need in your journey through the wilderness leads to manipulation and getting in the flesh to bring about the promise. Abraham did this when he produced a child through Hagar. Need strength? He provides it. Need healing? He provides it. Need emotional healing? He provides it. The definition of grace is “I will provide that which is needed” or empowerment to get you from when you first believed to your entering into eternal life at the end Romans 6:22. It is an ongoing journey of walking with the Lord in intimacy through the wilderness of life experientially as His grace that saves, provides for your needs through the wilderness of life so as to bring you to the promised land or eternal life.
3. The Doctrine of Baptisms (plural) of both water and Holy Spirit in that pattern. Water for the remission or sending away of past sins, slamming the door shut on what used to enslave you, baptizing you into the body of Christ, which I do to people right away. We shouldn’t wait and give the devil ground. I am not above baptizing coworkers in the back of a dump truck filled with rain water after they first believed when I worked for a land grading company. I am not lukewarm and they have it fully explained to them and know what they are committing to in being dead to sin and alive to righteousness IN ORDER THAT THEY BE RAISED AS CHRIST WAS RAISED. Being raised as Christ was raised has to have certain conditions of death to sin and self met. Have you ever seen demons manifest when the person is about to be water baptized? They have to leave. It is quite the sight. After water baptism and committing their life to be dead to sin and self and their old sins are remitted, they are now clean in order to be baptized or filled with the Holy Spirit that empowers them to keep that commitment.
4. The Doctrine of the Laying On Of Hands. This is done to impart blessings, healing, impartation of the Holy Spirit and His gifts as well as anointing.
5. Resurrection of the Dead either to eternal life or eternal destruction where we are all judged for what we have done in the body whether good or bad. Christians included. This is not just for rewards. The scripture says whether good or bad.
6. Eternal Judgement and this is said to believers and the church, not unbelievers. There is an eternal judgment for believers or the church because God DOES JUDGE HIS PEOPLE, no matter what heretics say. Behold both the kindness and severity of God. Both are His attributes and to ignore one over the other results in being on one side of the ditch or the other in error.
As I said, if the foundation on which we are established is faulty or missing something, the whole thing built upon it collapses and people fall away. Therefore, demonic doctrines will be deluding people on these foundational truths.
Let me explain it another way. A rich man gives you a check for a trillion dollars. One guys believes the rich man is good for the funds and does nothing with the check and thus it does him no good. He believes and has faith, but it isn’t the saving kind of faith. The second guy who receives the check believes the rich man is good for the funds and he endorses the check which is water baptism and then goes and deposits the check into his bank account which is being baptized in the Holy Spirit so that the funds can be transferred from the rich man’s account into his and he can have immediate access to them in time of need. This person’s faith produces action or works. Because he believes, he acts upon it. This is the saving kind of faith. Endorsing the check through water baptism and depositing the check through baptism in the Holy Spirit doesn’t make the funds any less free or is any more works than confessing. The believe and confess only people think anything beyond that is works salvation and makes the funds earned. They miss the whole point. You can’t earn what Jesus freely gives. Endorsing the check and depositing it in our bank account doesn’t make the gift any less free. They Holy Spirit is called the gift. Jesus said, “You will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit”. That implies that it is not earned, but must be received by acting upon what Jesus commanded in faith. Their faith resulted in receiving the gift through water and Holy Spirit baptism.
YOUR FOUNDATION DOES MATTER
“Why do you call Me, ‘Lord, Lord’ and not do what I say? “Everyone who comes to Me and hears My words and ACTS ON THEM, I will show you whom he is like: he is like a man building a house, who dug deep and laid a foundation on the rock; and when a flood occurred, the torrent burst against that house and could not shake it, because it had been well built upon the biblical foundation. “But the one who has heard and HAS NOT ACTED accordingly, is like a man who built a house on the shifting sands without any foundation; and the torrent burst against it and immediately it collapsed, and the ruin of that house was great.” Luke 6:46-49
by Patrick McIntyre.
During the last 100 years, when Evangelical Christianity was waging war for converts, certain questionable practices were overlooked. But we’re no longer the “kook fringe.” We ARE the establishment. The frenzy of wartime mentality, characterized by wild claims of battle successes that never were, must be replaced with reasonable, honest results. And it’s time to take thought for the wounded. For every truly born again American, (the Holy Spirit lives in them) there are at least 6 more that have said a “salvation prayer” and think they’re saved as the result. Many of these gave up on God and are now the cynical, “I tried that before” sinners that call people who go to church hypocrites. These are the most vocal haters of true Christianity. Their hatred is fueled by a dream that proved to be in their case, only a nightmare…
Tares In The Churches
If less than 10% of Americans are born again, (the Holy Spirit lives in them) then over half the people who go to church on Sunday are horribly deceived. Every poll, every statistical analysis, every internal and external church study shows what every evangelist and pastor knows: The majority of people who go to church in America are the moral equivalent of heathen. Bill Bright, who should know (…see Blinded By The Bright) said, “…many who call themselves Christians are not really Biblical Christians at all. Although they may be religious people who attend church regularly, they have never experienced the new birth and a personal relationship with Jesus Christ.”
Dr. Rod Bell, president of the Fundamentalist Baptist Fellowship
of America, believes 50% of people that go to church are lost. Evangelist Luis Palau said of the 80% of Americans who claim to be Christian, “few live any differently from pagans or atheists, as
though God has no claim on their lives.”
Dr. James Dobson admitted that, “The majority of Americans are dabbling in religious expression that has no substance.”
A.W. Tozer said “probably less than one out of ten evangelicals knows anything experientially about the new birth.”
While church leaders all acknowledge the problem, most think evangelical Christians live like heathen because of a “lack of sanctification.” Instead of trying to get them born again biblically so they’ll be changed by the Holy Spirit, we try to get them to act like
Christians. After 100 years, winds of doctrine have effectively buried the Bible teaching of holistic salvation. Forensic or legal salvation has been exalted above experiential salvation to the point where the landmarks of power over sin and the workings of the
Holy Spirit are buried like treasure, waiting to be exposed.
The Evangelical church is at the same point the Catholic church was when Luther brought reformation. Like that reformation, this reformation will require a return to a Biblical understanding of holistic salvation. We need to stop putting a “salvation prayer” Band-Aid on cancer and telling people they’re healed. Like Luther,
we have to return to a Biblical understanding of saving faith. Like
Luther, we need to acknowledge that, “he who has been made righteous does works of righteousness.”
Just as Luther unmasked the deceptive practice of indulgences, we must unmask the deceptive practice of leading people in a formula “salvation prayer.” “When the penny drops, a soul is released from Purgatory” was almost as harmful as, “when you sincerely repeat this prayer, your name is written in the Lamb’s Book of Life.” The first practice gave sinners the confidence that their friends and relatives could buy their way out of Purgatory. The second statement offers the sinner no-fault insurance from Hell.
Most people who attend Evangelical churches ignore the “small print” and go right to the bottom line: Because they said a salvation prayer, God doesn’t see their sin…they’re covered by the blood of Christ. So they can go on sinning without the fear of God. In fact, most are taught there’s nothing they can do that will disqualify their free ticket to heaven. “What shall we say then? Shall we continue in sin, that grace may abound?” Rom 6:1 Yes, says modern evangelism. “But wilt thou know, O vain man, that faith without works is dead?” James 2:20 No, says modern evangelism. Faith without works is normal for most American
There is no longer a need for showing forth the fruits of repentance, (Mathew 7:18) or making your election sure. (1 Peter 1:10) A youth pastor I know told a group of mostly lost teens, if they committed suicide, they’d still go to heaven. What kind of distorted theology would cause a minister to say such a thing to a group of teens most of which had no evidence of being born again? This is the result of the scandal of modern evangelism. We have become arrogant with the Scriptures, “… in which are some things hard to be understood, which they that are unlearned and unstable wrest, as they do also the other scriptures, unto their own destruction.”
2 Peter 3:16. “God forbid. How shall we, that are dead to sin, live any longer therein? Know ye not, that so many of us as were baptized into Jesus Christ were baptized into his death?”
-Rom 6:2-3. No Evangelical evangelist or pastor before 1900 would have looked at the condition of people who go to church today and concluded their carnality was the result of “lack of sanctification.” They would accurately conclude that the vast majority were never born again in the first place. The next question they would ask is, “why do they think they’re born again?”
The answer is the scandal of modern evangelism. Damnable heresies in the church or lies that will damn you if you believe them are the reason why.
Revival Or Irrelevance? The Evangelical establishment has a choice to make. Either recognize that churches are full of heathen, and try to make them into saints, or become as irrelevant as most European churches.
Either return to God’s way – complete transformation of the individual by the power of the indwelling Holy Spirit, or continue throwing precious resources into worldly social reforms, becoming part of the problem instead of the solution. just another welfare program…
TO BE CLEAR, ASKING JESUS INTO YOUR HEART, SAYING THE SINNER’S PRAYER OR ANYTHING OTHER THAN REPENT AND BE BAPTIZED EVERY ONE OF YOU IS NOT HOW TO BE BIBLICALLY BORN AGAIN OF WATER AND THE HOLY SPIRIT.
A false Jesus is being preached today which is why Jesus says, I never knew you. You can’t blame others for what you choose to believe. The bible states that if anyone preaches a different gospel and another Jesus, let them be accursed. Search the scriptures because in them you THINK you have eternal life. Make sure the Jesus you claim to know is the one in the bible and not one created by cherry picking verses out of the bible that pat your flesh and tickle your ears, and confirm your bias while excluding others. Read it in context as well asking yourself who God was talking to and what was His point. He has one!
I saw a woman interviewed on the Sid Roth show who saw hell and stated that hell’s best kept secret is the Once Saved, Always Saved or OSAS doctrine being preached today. It promises people eternal security if they recite their prayer asking Jesus into their hearts, which isn’t even in the bible. Nor is giving your life to Jesus. You don’t give your life to Jesus. You get your life from Jesus after you die to self. I will explain more on that later. That doctrine came about by cherry picking parts of verses to fit their mental stronghold of false doctrine. Remember a stronghold is in the mind and it must be pulled down with truth. It is a fortress of wrong beliefs that a person highly defends and protects, even when truth exposes the deception in order to pull down the stronghold of false beliefs. Jesus is the truth and He died to do just that in our deception. To reject truth is to reject Jesus. There will be many who will not receive the love of the truth that they might be saved. They are willfully deceived or stupid on purpose and as a result, God will send them strong delusion so that they will believe the lie and be damned. Satan has blinded their eyes and minds and God will give them what they want –STRONG delusion. The bible also states that unless you are born again of water and of the Holy Spirit in baptisms, you won’t see, understand or comprehend the bible or kingdom of God that we are to preach. It is no wonder the once saved, always saved preacher who believes the water birth is your first birth coming out of the birth sack, and having all the Holy Spirit you will ever need when you first believe has no real biblical world view of the Bible or the kingdom of God. He believes you already have something you do not which is needed to even comprehend what you are reading in the bible or understand how salvation works and the kingdom of heaven we are commanded to preach.
THE MOST DANGEROUS HERESY BEING PREACHED TODAY WAS CREATED BY EXCLUDING CERTAIN WORDS OR CHERRY PICKING!
We have people believing they are in Christ Jesus after reciting a prayer when the bible is very clear what it means to be In Christ. There is condemnation for those who walk in the flesh and fulfill the lusts thereof. To be In Christ or In Him, you have ceased from a lifestyle of sin and you walk as He walked, being led and controlled by the Holy Spirit instead of your flesh. This is what it means to be in Christ. Reciting a prayer doesn’t place you in Christ Jesus.
JESUS BOUGHT YOU, BUT DO YOU BELONG TO HIM?
By Robert Weller
For you have been bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body. 1Cor.6:20
Now THOSE WHO BELONG TO CHRIST JESUS have crucified the flesh with its PASSIONS AND DESIRES. Gal.5:24
This is the testimony of all who belong to Him; “I have been crucified with Christ; and it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me; and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself up for me.” Gal.2:20
Jesus bought the false teachers but they do not belong to Him. They do not deny His existence. They deny Him the right to be their Master (LORD). 2Pt.2:1 Many are saying LORD, LORD, but they have not come under His lordship.
The Father expressed His pleasure in Jesus immediately after being baptized in water and in the Holy Spirit by saying, “This is my beloved son in whom I am well pleased”. Water baptism is not just symbolic as many teach, thus implying it is optional. That is not what the bible says. If you are water baptized without the full realization that you are making this lifetime commitment to being dead to sin and self, all you did was get wet at a pool party. It was of none effect. Afterwards, you are baptized in the Holy Spirit, which empowers you to not sin and keep your commitment to being dead to sin and self. The bible states that God gave us the POWER TO BECOME SONS OF GOD. We do not become that way by reciting a prayer, but instead by utilizing the power given us not to sin through the baptism of the Holy Spirit through an act of your will in submission to the King. It is not about works but your will in submitting to Jesus as Lord. If Jesus isn’t Lord of your life, He can’t be savior. We have been restored to God as Adam and Eve was before the fall, but they still, as an act of their will, had to walk in obedience to God. We have been empowered to do so and overcome our sinful fleshly nature.
The baptism in the Holy Spirit empowers or graces us not to sin. Our freedom in Christ comes from no longer being a slave to sin as a result. Where the spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty or freedom from slavery to sin, not freedom to sin because you believe you are eternally secure by reciting a prayer. It is no longer you who live but Christ in you. You died and decreased so that He may increase.
This same pattern of salvation can be found in the exodus of the Israelites from Egypt. Egypt is symbolic of the world. The Israelites first believed they would be “saved” or delivered when in Egypt but they were not yet “saved” or delivered. Believing is the first part that would then align them to follow Moses, who God sent to deliver or “save” them. Just as when we first believe, that is to align or position us to follow Jesus who is THE WAY into the promised land of eternal life after going through this wilderness of life. Without someone telling you that you have a deliverer and that you have a need for one, you wouldn’t believe and align yourself in following Jesus. Just believing doesn’t deliver you from Egypt or your slavery to the world and sin. We have taught people that all they have to do is just believe and anything beyond that is works and you are “saved” when you first believe. The bible states that when you first believe, you will be or shall be, future tense, saved. Why? Because you are expected to align yourself with Christ and pick up your cross and follow Him now that you know you are a sinner who can’t keep the law in your ability and needed this empowerment or grace not to sin and follow Him. The word Christian means follower of Christ. If you aren’t doing as He commanded, you are not following Him out of Egypt and your slavery to sin, and therefore you are not “saved” or delivered from your sins which is what Jesus died to do. Your sins are no longer covered up as they were in the Old Testament. You are delivered from being a slave to them by being empowered not to sin through the baptism of the Holy Spirit.
After the Israelite believed that they would be saved or delivered, they obeyed what Moses commanded. At Passover they painted the blood of the lamb on the door posts of their home and they were commanded not to come out from under the blood until the death angel passed or else they would perish as well. We are not to come out of the blood covering of Christ either by going back into a lifestyle of sin. All who belong to Christ have ceased from a lifestyle of sin. Next the people were set free and the Lord led them straight to the Red Sea in order to water baptize them as the New Testament states. Water baptism also slammed the door shut on what used to enslave them so there is a severing of the old in the act of water baptism so that they would not return to slavery or Egypt. After being water baptized, they were led by the Holy Spirit through the wilderness of life by a pillar of fire or a cloud. This is symbolic of being led and controlled by the Holy Spirit. Those who sinned and complained, died in the wilderness of life as an example to us. There was no once saved, always saved once led out of slavery after being water baptized and led and controlled by the Holy Spirit. If you disobeyed, you were destroyed if you didn’t repent. Moses couldn’t lead them into the promised land as he represented the law where Joshua represented Jesus who led them into the promised land or eternal life. Romans 6:22 states that in the end we receive eternal life or enter the promised land. The only way to God the Father and the promised land is to follow Jesus and do as He commanded and demonstrated. Just believing leaves you still in Egypt a slave to sin and that is the problem with the powerless gospel being preached today. Darkness has blinded the eyes of the current preachers today who have no clue about how salvation works, let alone how to enter into it and remain.
When you first believe you are “sealed” and that word is translated earnest or deposit. It is like putting a deposit on a house with the intent to fully redeem and occupy or like giving an engagement ring with the intent to marry. If the deal falls through the deposit is returned. That is what happens to the foolish virgins who did not make themselves ready for the bridegroom. They ran out of oil. Not all Christians are raptured either. Only those that make themselves ready. Malachi 3 is in reference to the wise virgins who were ready at the return of their bridegroom and who will be spared on the day of the Lord when the Lord acts in judgment.
Malachi 3:16-18 Then those who feared the Lord spoke with each other, and the Lord listened to what they said. In His presence, a scroll of remembrance was written to record the names of those who feared Him and always thought about the honor of His name. They will be my people says the Lord of Heaven’s armies. On the day when I act in judgment, they will be my own special treasure. I will spare them as a father spares an OBEDIENT child. Then you will again see the difference between the righteous and the wicked, between those who serve God and those who do not.
You are raptured or caught away if your name is written in the book of remembrance because you feared the Lord and honored His name as well as what He died to do in delivering us from our sins. As a result, it will be clear who loves and serves the Lord and walks in His righteousness by receiving His gift of the Holy Spirit who empowers us to do so. Not those who are workers of iniquity (you knew it was wrong and did it anyway) who will hear “depart from Me you worker of iniquity. I never knew you” who are deceived into thinking grace is license because they are eternally secure.
THE APOSTASY HAS ALREADY COME
By Robert Weller
Now we request you, brethren, with regard to the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ and OUR GATHERING TOGETHER WITH HIM, that you not be disturbed either by a spirit or a message (false teacher) or a letter (new manuscript) as if from us, to the effect that the day of the Lord has come. LET NO ONE IN ANY WAY DECEIVE YOU, for it (our gathering together unto Him) will not come unless the apostasy (falling away from the only true faith) comes FIRST, FIRST, and the man of lawlessness is revealed, the son of perdition.
Most churches in America are totally dead and they do not even know it. Rev.3:1-2 We now have the Emerging Church heresy; The prosperity gospel heresy; The new age eastern mysticism heresy, and the OSAS heresy. They are unable to endure sound doctrine. 2Tim.4:3-4, 1Tim.6:3-4 They did not love the truth so as to be saved. 2Thes,2:11-12
Sealed doesn’t mean signed, sealed and delivered with an unbreakable seal. Sealed is a deposit you get when you first believe. If you don’t follow Jesus out of Egypt or the world and sin, you don’t get delivered, fully redeemed or occupied by the baptism of the Holy Spirit. This is the whole pattern of salvation throughout the New and Old Testament. We are not to become lawless because the law was not done away with. It was written upon our hearts. You are not free to sin but free from sin and slavery to it. If you choose to willfully return to sin after being empowered not to sin and after knowing Christ, it is an act of your free will that God will judge.
Hebrews 10:26-31. For if we sin willfully (go back into a lifestyle of sin) after RECEIVING, not rejecting, the knowledge of the truth….. the word knowledge is translated “to become fully acquainted with, to acknowledge, full discernment, to have, to know, to fully possess”. This is what you have RECEIVED. That is not an unbeliever who rejected the gospel. They RECEIVED it. I just heard the once saved always saved preacher teach this as being spoken about unbelievers who rejected the truth after hearing the gospel and he conveniently left out some words like RECEIVE and knowledge. He states this is an unbeliever who heard and rejected the gospel. He has to leave out words to fit his beliefs or mental strongholds. He cherry picks what words he wants to see and believe or to conveniently leave out to create a God who is an idol and not the God of the bible. After all he has taught this since the 1990’s and built his ministry on his “Eternal Security” book that has duped and damned millions. Their blood will be on his hands. People are going to hell because of it because they continue in their sin. No point in repenting because you are in. You said your little prayer. He even stated you can’t repent until you are “saved” first. Why would the Lord tell us to do something we couldn’t do? When the apostles were asked what they must do to be saved the answer was repent and be baptized everyone of you. Not some but all.
Hebrews 10:26-30 is to a believer not an unbeliever as this preacher falsely preaches. Verse 30 states The Lord will judge His people. This talks about God judging His people in the context of willfully sinning after RECEIVING, becoming fully acquainted with, acknowledging, to have full discernment, to have and fully know and fully possess the truth. This preacher also said in this same sermon that God does not judge His people. He disciplines them. Read verse 30 again. It says THE LORD WILL JUDGE HIS PEOPLE!!!!
Please read Hebrews 10:26-30 and stop listening to preachers who preach damnable heresies or lies that will damn you as a Christian and that strengthen you in your sin instead of deliver you from it. The word judge in God judging His people is translated crisis, or the time it is determined when one is cut off eternally from God or dies because you have trodden the blood of His son under your feet and counted it as an unholy thing and this you have done despite the spirit of grace or empowerment not to sin. You can have your name removed from the lamb’s book of life and I addressed how in other newsletters.
Once saved always saved is the worst and most dangerous heresy being preached today. It is hell’s best kept secret that has caused an apostate church that has fallen away from the one true faith that we are to earnestly contend for. We can’t be silent about it because souls are lost eternally and their blood will be on our hands. Silence is condoning and turning a blind eye to those bound for hell because they are comfortable in their sin due to the belief there is no eternal consequence. We must EARNESTLY CONTEND FOR THE ONE TRUE FAITH.
NOT EVERYONE WHO SAYS TO ME LORD, LORD WILL ENTER THE KINGDOM OF HEAVEN BUT HE WHO DOES THE WILL OF MY FATHER WHO IS IN HEAVEN WILL ENTER Mat.7:21
Some like to quote Jn.6:29 Jesus answered and said to them, “This is the work of God, that you believe in Him whom He has sent.” But their understanding of believing is to believe in his existence or some of the historical information about Him. This is far from what the Bible teaches. The word believe is a verb and not a noun, which means you completely trust in Jesus to empower you and supply you with what is needed throughout your whole life until the end. It is an ongoing commitment to trust in Him through the wilderness of life so you don’t fall away and become apostate. This means He is faithful to bring truth in your deception. That is who He is. If you reject truth, you reject Jesus. “You say that you LOVE TRUTH, yet you reject Me when I bring it in your deception. You say that I am THE WAY, yet will not follow Me in obedience. You say that I am THE LIFE, yet you do not receive the gift I sent that leads to eternal life and rivers of living water in your time of need.” Only those that do the will of the Father enter the kingdom of heaven. The Father expressed His pleasure and son ship of Jesus after being water and Holy Spirit baptized, yet we deny or imply it is unnecessary for the saving of our souls.
It is God’s will for us to be filled with His Spirit. Eph.5:18 If it was automatic, Paul would be deceitful by saying He gives His Spirit to those who OBEY Him. Acts 5:32
It is God’s will for us to be sanctified. 1 Thes.4:3 If it were automatic, Paul would be deceitful by saying this. 1 Thes.4:7-8
It is God’s will for us to be saved AND come to the knowledge of the truth. 1 Tim.2:3 If it were automatic, Paul would be deceitful by saying this.
It is God’s will for all to repent. 2 Pt.3:9, Acts 17:30-31 If it was automatic, Peter and Paul would be deceitful by saying this.
It is ONLY those who DO the will of God that will be saved. 1Jn.2:17, Matt.7:21, Matt.12:50. Many, translated majority, are not going down the narrow road. Matt.7:13-14 because of the damnable heresies, demonic doctrines and gospel of self and what I can get if I attach myself to Christ gospel of me stuff. They are willfully deceived or stupid on purpose. They will not receive the love of the truth that they might be saved and this is said to believers who became apostate.
The word SAVED is used so loosely in Christian circles. We have been falsely taught if we recite a prayer we are saved at that very moment but if you look up scripture regarding the word saved it is future tense. Shall be, will be etc. it is never present tense. The translation of being saved, also a future tense process means to deliver from sins and it’s power, to protect, heal, make whole, do well. We are in the process of being made perfectly whole. Grace is not the license to sin but the power of God given to you not to through the baptism of the Holy Spirit. Your freedom in Christ comes from no longer being a slave to sin. If you are still a slave to sin, how saved are you? That is why repentance is a requirement to being (future tense) saved. It is not a one time repentance but a lifelong attitude you keep. You play a part in working out your salvation with fear and trembling the Bible says. If it is something you have already obtained, why are you still required to work it out in the wilderness of life?
And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me. Where we are weak, He is strong and He supplies that which is needed in our weakness. That is grace in the wilderness of life that gets us from the beginning of our race in life to the end.
2 Peter 1 Grace and peace be multiplied unto you through the knowledge of God, and of Jesus our Lord (that we submit to). More grace and peace is multiplied with more knowledge that you act upon. According as His divine power hath given us all things that pertain unto life and godliness through the knowledge of him that hath called us to glory and virtue, so that we might be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust. Simply put, grace is not a license to sin, but it is the empowerment not to sin through the baptism of the Holy Spirit. Your freedom in Christ comes from no longer being a slave to sin. He has provided you with this empowerment or grace to live godly through knowledge of Him who has called us to glory and virtue to escape the corruption of the world through lust.
He that lacks these things is blind and cannot see afar off, and hath forgotten that he was purged from his old sins. Is that you?
Now that you know about grace being the empowerment not to sin through the baptism of the Holy Spirit, this verse can be read as God intended. The law was to reveal our sin and show our inability to keep it and we needed this empowerment to keep God’s moral law. Sin shall no longer enslave you or be your master as the law taught you because you have now been empowered or graced not to sin and that is how Jesus fulfilled the law. He didn’t do away with it. God’s moral law does not change. When Jesus said it was finished on the cross, that is translated “perfected”. What the law could not do but show you your inability to cease from sin, grace through the blood of Jesus at the cross perfects it by empowering you not to sin. Therefore, you are under grace or empowerment, and no longer a slave to sin, not the law which was to show your inability to keep it without this empowerment.
Some people receive the love of the truth and teach it. It is catching on. Those that belong to Him hear His voice and the voice of another they will not follow.
GOD’S GRACE GIVES POWER OVER SIN
By Robert Weller
What shall we say then? Are we to continue in sin so that grace may increase? MAY IT NEVER BE !!!! How shall we who died to sin still live in it? Rom.6:1-2
Therefore do not let sin reign in your mortal body so that you obey its lusts (covetousness) Rom.6:12
FOR SIN SHALL NOT BE MASTER OVER YOU, for you are not under law but under grace.
What then? Shall we sin because we are NOT UNDER THE LAW (the curse of the law) but under grace? MAY IT NEVER BE !!!! Rom.6:14-15
Do we then nullify the Law through faith? MAY IT NEVER BE !!!! On the contrary, we establish the Law (cause it to stand). Rom.3:31
But now having been FREED FROM SIN and ENSLAVED TO GOD, you derive your benefit, RESULTING IN SANCTIFICATION, and the outcome (of sanctification), ETERNAL LIFE. Rom.6:22, Acts 26:18, Acts 20:32
Grace teaches us to deny ungodliness and worldly desires and to live sensibly, righteously and godly in this present age. Titus 2:11-12
Emotional Healing is grace that causes us to cease from sin and this is also provided by Jesus in order to deliver us from the power of sin. In this section, I would like to explore more of that and talk about that more experientially. In the body of Christ we don’t really get to know one another and there is no freedom to speak openly about what we are dealing with. Church becomes very superficial and we do not bear one another’s burdens because we don’t even know what they are. People are not free to talk. We become judgmental instead of compassionate while listening to the Holy Spirit in how to minister to another as He would like. I highly recommend watching the 1980 movie called Leap of Faith with Steve Martin. That is the Jesus I know in the movie. Steve is a traveling evangelist who is a huckster only doing it for the money. His mother was a traveling gypsy who abandoned him on a corner at age 8. He had abandonment issues as a result and didn’t really believe in God. The Lord had the crusade vehicles break down in a little farming town. Steve grew to love a young lady and her brother who walked on crutches due to being in a car accident where both his parents were killed. The boy gets healed at one of Steve Martin’s crusade nights for real. The boy now wants to travel around with Steve Martin’s evangelistic crusade thinking he is a real man of God. Their vehicles were fixed and the crusade was packed and ready to leave in the morning. The young 16 year old boy asks to go with them. Steve tells him he will pick him up in the morning at a corner, the same way his mother had told him. Steve had grown fond of the boy and his sister. Then Steve told his sister who he fell in love with, that when he doesn’t show up in the morning to pick the boy up, tell the boy it was because he was no good for him and that is why he didn’t allow him to go along. God put Steve in the position of his mother who abandoned him at a corner at age 8 and he realized for the first time that his mother didn’t abandon him because she didn’t love him, but because she did and she would not be any good for him in her traveling gypsy shows. At this point the Lord now reveals to Steve his deep emotional wound from a child of abandonment and his mother really did love him and that is why she left him. It was all she knew to do. Steve then repents, leaves the whole traveling crusade and hitch hikes out on the road away from mocking God and using the bible to steal from people. He is picked up by a Christian trucker. When the Lord reveals our wounds and heals them, we come to repentance as well. Take a look at another example:
GERMAN CHOCOLATE CAKE
I belonged to a huge church in Minnesota. We had small groups you could sign up for where you met once a month for a pot luck so you could get to know your neighbors who lived close by who attended the church also. We went to the house of our host at our first pot luck. We found that they had recently lost a baby and were grieving. The husband had just become a Christian and was being rejected by his Jewish mother, whom he was always very close to. She had cut him off and he was really feeling it as they struggled with their sorrow in losing the baby. I invited them over the following weekend for dinner. The day before, I went food shopping having the whole meal planned. I was going to make lasagna. I had a light dessert planned because the meal was heavy. I had all the lasagna ingredients in my cart and I went to shop for the dessert items when the Lord stopped me in my tracks in a store isle. He told me that I wasn’t going to make what I planned for dessert and that I was going to instead make a German Chocolate Cake. I am standing in the aisle stupidly telling the Lord that German Chocolate cake didn’t go with lasagna. I knew it was a stupid argument but He insisted I make the German Chocolate cake. I got all the ingredients for it and made it for dessert. I placed it on a beautiful raised china cake plate with a cover. We had dinner and a nice conversation getting to know them. I cleared the table and brought out plates and served coffee. I grabbed the cake plate off the counter and set it on the table and removed the lid. The husband burst out in tears. The husband blurted through his sobs that his mom always made German Chocolate cake for him as a child when he was sad or going through a hard time. Now I am blubbering as I explained to him the encounter I had with the Father in the grocery store where He insisted I make the German Chocolate cake. I told him this time, your Daddy made you a German Chocolate cake. Abba was healing and acknowledge the wound of one of His new born babies. The man’s Jewish mother soon became a follower of Christ as a result of God gracing him with the ability to walk in love toward her because the wound was addressed and healed. Jesus bore our sorrows and griefs because so many of our sins come from unhealed and unacknowledged wounds. Until the wound is healed, the sin will not go away, which is why He bore our sorrows and griefs. A bruised reed will He not break and a smoking flax will He not quench. Jesus did this to DELIVER us from our sins, not cover them up, as He gets to the root, where sin is the fruit. I have testimony after testimony of this in my life after living most of my life in domestic abuse. I want people to know and experience this form of healing grace that delivers and sets us free from our sin and open us up to being used by God as instruments of His healing. You have to know how it works and cooperate in working with Him in it. The gifts of the spirit do not operate much anymore and the church needs to revisit teaching again on that and getting people truly baptized in the Holy Spirit following the biblical pattern I illustrated. The gifts of the spirit have not ceased and Jesus did not perform any miracle until He was first baptized in the Holy Spirit.
I used to run a licensed day care and preschool. One Sunday I had a medical emergency due to domestic abuse resulting in life a threatening injury. I lay on the floor with a foreboding feeling knowing it was bad. I asked the ex to call 911. He sat calmly on the bed and told me no. He was going to sit there and watch me die! I lay part way on the bathroom floor and part way in my closet. I looked around for the purse in order to grab my phone. When he realized what I was doing, he called 911. I was rushed to the hospital where I stayed in emergency not knowing if I would live or die for about 14 hours. A day care parent who was spirit filled and a friend went into intercession for me. She said that as she prayed, the fear of the Lord came over her and He told her regarding me, “You better be careful how you handle my jewel”. She told me later when I returned home what the Lord had said about me in my circumstance and she was filled with the fear of God in how she had to treat me in my fragile state. This is how I first learned the meaning of God’s jewels who fear Him and honor His name as found in Malachi 3. Once they stabilized me in the emergency room they sent me to a hospital two hours away to get me away from the abuser and evaluate my situation. I had been putting money away from running the day care so that I could divorce and get away from him. I needed the income from the day care or divorce was impossible and death was just a matter of time. He was made to leave the home and I was placed under the care of a local doctor. About a week or two after I returned home from the hospital and was back running the day care and preschool, The Department of Family Services who do my licensing showed up. Anytime 911 is called, they have to do an investigation. They told me my license may be revoked and I would no longer be able to operate. I was allowed to continue to operate until the investigation was complete. Weeks went by and months. My stomach tied in knots as this was my only way of escape in providing income to pay for an attorney. When I moved to this 10 acre property, the Lord told me to walk the land at the time. He told me everywhere you place your foot, I will give you the land so I walked the perimeter. I didn’t understand it at the time, but He made good on that promise. As a diversion from the stomach being tied in knots and being in constant torment about losing my license to practice, I rented a movie call “Castaway” with Tom Hanks, where as a Fedex employee on a Fedex plane that went down in the ocean, he survived and lived for 4 years on an island until he finally built a raft and castaway from the island until his rescue. I felt much like Tom Hanks in the movie being all alone, trapped in a situation you don’t want to be in without any way of rescue or escape. The Lord was acknowledging my feeling of despair throughout the movie. Tom Hanks had a Fedex envelope that he kept running his hands over pondering the motto. I knew by the spirit of God that He was talking to me in using that motto but I couldn’t read it. I would start the DVD over in that place and watch it again and again, trying to read that envelope motto that Tom Hanks kept running his hands over. In despair, I went to bed frustrated. At around 3:00 a.m. I woke up startled because I now knew exactly what that motto said. It was like the Holy Spirit just dropped the answer into my spirit and I knew. The motto was “WE (ELOHIM or TRINITY) ALWAYS DELIVER”. The Lord was telling me that We, as the trinity, always deliver His from their circumstances. My fear left. That was just the Rhema word I need to defeat the fear and despair that engulfed me during this time. About a week later I got the ruling on my license to operate that took months. It was ruled initially that my licensed was to be revoked. Somehow, the attorney general of the state I lived in, who was a Christian, wanted to review it before my licensed was revoked which was almost unheard of. He ruled in my favor and overruled any other decisions made based on the fact that it didn’t occur during a time when kids were there as it had occurred on a weekend and that the abuser was barred from the home. I made a generous income in this business which allowed me the funds to go through a two year divorce trial in my state, because if abuse is involved, negotiating is not an option because abusers manipulate the system to re-abuse. Because my income was based on the house and property, I got it all and everywhere my foot had tread before I moved into the home, became mine. God is faithful.
THE SON IS STILL ABOVE THE CLOUDS
No I didn’t misspell sun in this case. I suffered from depression over the years as a result of domestic abuse and the inability to get out of it because of finances and constant manipulation and threats. One Memorial Day weekend, we had to drive to a company event because my ex was high up in a fortune 500 company. He was a third degree black belt as well. Company sponsored events meant travel on occasions and we had to drive from Minnesota to Nebraska through Iowa. Iowa is nothing but flat land and corn fields and it had been raining for about a week. As we drove, I looked up at the low, dark clouds that went on as far as I could see. I thought to myself “My life is like these dark, low, thick clouds”. We went to the company event and returned home on a Sunday. I belonged to a spirit filled church in Eden Prairie, MN and really felt the need to go to church. I had missed the morning service but Sunday evening they were to have a prayer meeting so I made sure I attended. There was a large group there and the clouds were breaking up in the late afternoon sky. We had some beautiful praise and worship before prayer. Then out of nowhere the piano lady went over to the piano and began to play a melody. Under the anointing, she began to weep. She wanted to speak but could not for the weeping. The assistant pastor realized God was moving as he was prophetic and he went and sat down on the piano bench next to the lady weeping and playing the piano so as to get under that anointing. He began to say, “The Lord is weeping. The Lord is grieved and weeping and very sorrowful. He is weeping for someone here. He feels your pain and it breaks His heart. There is someone here who feels like their life is like dark, thick heavy rain clouds as far as your eyes can see. The Lord wants you to know that the Son is still above the clouds”. Now I am crying uncontrollably and there was no question in anyone’s mind who that Rhema word was for. I had never told anyone I was thinking that very thing on the drive through Iowa but the Lord knew. He eventually delivered me out of that situation.
I bring up these things because they were regular occurrences in my life as I experience the God of the word in acknowledging and healing emotional wounds so that the devil has no place to land. This is the grace He demonstrates and gives in order to save through our wilderness walk in life in order to get us to the promised land in the end where we receive eternal life. This is what it means to trust Him for our salvation. It is not a one time trust, but a life long thing where He supplies that which is needed in the wilderness of our life, just as the Israelites had to trust God for all their needs. This is the grace that saves and we are no longer under the law, but under this grace that gets us from the Red Sea to the promised land. The word saved means to make whole, emotionally, physically and in all manner. We are being “saved” in the wilderness.
So let’s talk about revival and why we haven’t had it thus far. We pray for it. We call things like weird manifestations revival, which aren’t. It is just the devil counterfeiting what the Holy Spirit does. We have divination being practiced in the church under the guise of declare and decree it, positive confession, name it and claim it or blab it and grab it. I have discussed this in other newsletters. We have turned the gospel into covetousness and the bible says the covetous will not enter the kingdom of heaven. There is a whole host of things the bible says that those who practice them won’t enter the kingdom of heaven and this is said to believers, not unbelievers. We talk about a final end time harvest but this is why we have not yet seen it.
JUDGMENT STARTS IN THE HOUSE OF THE LORD.
I received a strong word of the Lord this time last year. His word was strong and the tone was one of weariness in the state of His church.
“For I will not pour new wine into old wine skins or give revelation and gifts for misuse and mockery. I will not bring in a bountiful harvest into unclean barns. The house must first be cleansed before the spirit of the Lord will dwell. The barn must first be cleansed before I bring in the harvest. Mold and rot have eaten up that which I have brought into my storehouse. I will no longer bring my harvest into such a place to be devoured. My house shall be a house of prayer and no longer a den of thieves. My barns will no longer be a place full of mold and decay that eat up seed that I have carefully planted and watered and brought forth only to be devoured by the mold and rot in my barns. There is coming a cleansing of my barns before the harvest field is reaped saith the Lord. Only those new wineskins that are flexible enough to flow in my spirit and be taught and be cleansed will hold my power and glory and go forth into the harvest field to reap a bountiful harvest. But not before my barns have been swept and purified.”
If you have lived in the country and fed horses hay, you know that hay, if baled when damp will become moldy in the middle where it is dark and kept from light and air in dark unclean barns. This mold has a sweet aroma and is almost undetectable unless you know what it looks and smells like through knowledge and discernment. If you don’t you are apt to feed unclean hay to your beloved livestock. Ingested, it makes the horses sick and those that breathe the toxic mold when the hay bale is cracked open. This is due to not harvesting and baling the hay correctly. This is the image I got when the Lord gave me this word. His Church is a dark unclean barn that needs light and air before the harvest is brought in harvested correctly and baled correctly so mold and rot do not grow that eventually burn down barns and sicken the livestock. Otherwise it will rot. Hay that has damp mold in the center is prone to spontaneously combust and burn the barn down killing all that live inside. Horses, cattle etc. Yet the powdery black mold has a sweet aroma disguising its toxicity and harm. The barn must first be cleaned up before the harvest is brought in and baled correctly saith the Lord.
Before the Lord judges the world, He will judge His church and cleanse His temple.
And we are witnesses of these things; and so is the Holy Spirit, whom God has given to THOSE WHO OBEY HIM.” Acts 5:32 He gives His Spirit to those who repent (quit sinning) and are baptized. Acts 2:38
He is coming for a bride who is without spot or wrinkle who made herself ready.
PREPARING A GLORIOUS CHURCH WITHOUT SPOT OR WRINKLE! As a church leader, TV or radio station or head of your household, are you delivering unto Jesus the just rewards for His sacrifice and redirecting traffic at the gates of hell, or are you a stumbling block and offense that will be gathered out of His kingdom because of damnable heresies you allow that dupe the masses? You are either presenting unto Him a glorious church without spot or wrinkle or producing foolish virgins who ran out of oil. You will be held more accountable. To whom much is given, much is required. Behold the kindness and severity of God. The Father is the Vine dresser that cuts off any unfruitful branches that are thrown in the fire.
THE JUDGEMENT SEAT OF CHRIST by Robert Weller
For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ, so that each one may be recompensed (paid back) for his DEEDS (works) in the body, according to what he has done, whether GOOD or BAD. THEREFORE, knowing the TERROR (fear) of the Lord… 2Cor.5:10-11 The terror of the Lord has been nullified by those who say that the judgment seat of Christ is for rewards only. They get this heresy by adulterating 1Cor.3:14-15. I will come back to that text shortly.
There are many scriptures that say that the judgment of the false church precedes that of the true church. Mat.13:41-43, Mat,13:47-50 The wedding feast occurs in heaven and there will be those who do not get dressed for the wedding. Many are called but few are elect. Mat.22:12-14, Rev.19:7-8
We will ALL give an account before Jesus as to what we did with what He gave us. He will not ask us if we believed in Him. He will say to the GOOD and FAITHFUL, “WELL DONE SLAVE”. But to those who are WICKED and LAZY, He will say, “Throw the worthless slave into the outer darkness; in that place there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.” They were both judged at the same time. Mat.25:19-30, Rom.14:12, 3Jn.11
Peter said, “If you address as Father the One who IMPARTIALLY judges according to each one’s WORK, conduct yourselves in FEAR during the time of your (believers) stay on earth. Knowing you were not redeemed with perishable things like silver or gold from your futile way of life inherited from your forefathers, but with the precious blood, as of a Lamb unblemished and spotless, the blood of Christ.” 1Pt.1:17-19 This is a repeated message in the scriptures. Matt.16:27, Mat.12:36-37, Rev.22:11-12, Col.3:25, Jn.15:29, Rom.2:5-11, Rom.14:10-12
Jesus said, “MANY will say to Me ON THAT DAY (judgment day), ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in Your name, and in Your name cast out demons, and in Your name perform many miracles (all gifts of the Spirit)?’ And then I will declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness. (NO LAW, unrepentant sinners)’ Mat.7:22-23
For it is time for judgment to begin with the household of God; and if it begins with us (Peter included) first, what will be the outcome for those WHO DO NOT OBEY, THE GOSPEL of God? And if it is with DIFFICULTY that the RIGHTEOUS ARE SAVED, what will become of the godless man and the SINNER? 1Pt.4:17-18
Now I will explain how 1Cor.3 is distorted. What then is Apollos? And what is Paul? Servants through whom you believed, even as the Lord gave an opportunity to each one. I planted, Apollos watered, but God was causing the growth. So then neither the one who plants nor the one who waters is anything, but God who causes the growth. Now he who plants and he who waters are one, but each will receive his own REWARD according to his own labor (WORK). For we are God’s fellow workers; you (Corinthians) are God’s field, God’s BUILDING. Paul’s and Apollos’ WORK was their converts. 1Cor.3:5-9
According to the grace of God which was given to me, like a wise master BUILDER I laid a foundation (Jesus Christ), and another is building on it (teaching converts about serving Christ). But each man must be careful how he builds on it (Ja.3:1, Lk.17:1-2). For no man can lay a foundation other than the one which is laid, which is Jesus Christ. Now if any man builds (teaching converts) on the foundation with gold, silver, precious stones (sound doctrine 1Tim.5:3-4, wood, hay, straw (liberal, false doctrine), each man’s work (converts) will become evident; for the day (judgment day) will show it because it is to be revealed with fire (refiner’s fire), and the fire itself will test the quality of each man’s work (converts). If any man’s work (converts) which he has built (teachings) on it remains, he will receive a reward (for teaching sound doctrine). If any man’s work (converts) is burned up, he will suffer loss (of rewards); but he (the builder) himself will be saved, yet so as through fire (if his faith can endure the refiner’s fire) Mat.10:22, Lk.12:49.
We all have a job as slaves of Christ to build. Jesus said, “He who is not with Me is against Me, and he who does not gather with Me scatters.” Mat.12:30 Paul continued with the same theme in 1Cor.3:16-17 by saying, “If any man destroys the temple (composite house of God), God will destroy him. It should be obvious that God would not need to destroy those who are destroying themselves with bad eating habits. Heretics have destroyed many with their demonic lies.
The “IF YOU CONTINUE” scripture is all the way through the new testament. Now I make known to you, brethren, the gospel which I preached to you, which also you received, in which also you stand, by which also you are (being) saved IF YOU hold fast the word which I preached to you unless YOU BELIEVE IN VAIN. 1Cor.15:1-2
He has now reconciled you in His fleshly body through death, in order to present you before Him holy and blameless and beyond reproach—IF INDEED YOU CONTINUE IN THE ONLY TRUE FAITH. FIRMLY ESTABLISHED and STEADFAST, and NOT MOVED AWAY FROM THE HOPE OF THE GOSPEL that you have heard, which was proclaimed in all creation under heaven, and of which I, Paul, was made a minister.
For if God did not spare the natural branches, He will not spare you (Christians), either. Behold then the kindness and severity of God; to those who fell, severity, but to you (Christians), God’s kindness, IF YOU CONTINUE in His kindness; otherwise you also will be CUT OFF (in the same way Israel was cut off). Rom.11:21-22 What if you don’t?
ABIDE, CONTINUE, ENDURE, PRESERVER TO THE END IN ORDER TO BE SAVED
by Robert Weller
Most people teach that if a person is born-again, they are automatically saved. The bible does not teach this. Those who are born-again should or may have eternal life. Jn.3:15-17 & 36 The rebirth is our calling. MANY ARE CALLED, BUT FEW ARE ELECT. That is because they don’t put on the wedding garments. Mat.22:10-14 The rebirth gives us the power to become sons of God, but it is how we end the faith that determines whether we are saved or elect. Jn.1:12-13
THE END OF YOUR FAITH IS THE SALVATION OF YOUR SOUL.
by Robert Weller
1Pt.9 Repentance LEADS TO SALVATION. 2Cor.7:9-10, Ac.11:18 Our salvation is closer now than when we first believed. Those who are spiritually asleep or living in sin will not be saved if the Lord returns before they repent. Rom.13:11-14, 1Jn.2:18-19, Mk.13:35-37, Mat.13:25 & 41-43, Eph.5:14-17, 1Thes.5:1-9 Those who wake-up the sleeping church will save their soul (not their body) from eternal death. Ja.5:19-20
IT IS ONLY THOSE WHO ENDURE TO THE END THAT WILL BE SAVED. Mat.10:22 Many have gone through the narrow door which is the body of Christ, but only a FEW are going down the narrow road that ENDS IN ETERNAL LIFE. Mat.7:13-14 Because of the false doctrine that is ramped in America, MANY HAVE BELIEVED IN VAIN (of no saving value). 1Cor.15:1-2, 1Ths.3:5, 2Cor.6:1 It is a matter of continuing, abiding or remaining to the end. The word, “IF” is usually ignored. Col.1:21-23, Rom.11:19-22, Jn.15:1-10, Jn.8:31-32,
We are saved by grace through (because of) faith in the truth whose name is Jesus. Thy word is truth. Jesus is the living word.
LOVE WITHOUT TRUTH IS HYPOCRISY by Robert Weller
Jesus loves the repentant sinner, not the unrepentant. Jn.14:23-24 Love rejoices with truth and love without truth is hypocrisy. We are to hate that which is evil. 1Cor.13:6, Let love be without hypocrisy. Abhor (hate) that which is evil, cling to what is good. Rom.12:9 The most loving thing you can do for a person is turn them from their sins and save their SOUL from death. Ja. 5:19-20
Keep yourselves in the love of God!
How? By Keeping His Word! By contending for the one true faith!
Jude, the servant of Jesus Christ, and brother of James, to them that are sanctified by God the Father, and preserved in Jesus Christ, and called:
2 Mercy unto you, and peace, and love, be multiplied.
3 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.
4 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 (because they would not receive the love of the truth, Jesus, that they might be saved).
5 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. (remember this is a verb meaning ongoing belief).
6 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.
7 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.
17 But, beloved, remember ye the words which were spoken before of the apostles of our Lord Jesus Christ;
18 How that they told you there should be mockers in the last time, who should walk after their own ungodly lusts.
19 These be they who separate themselves, sensual, having not the Spirit.
20 But ye, beloved, building up yourselves on your most holy faith, praying in the Holy Ghost,
21 Keep yourselves in the love of God, looking for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ unto eternal life. If you are looking for mercy unto eternal life, that means you don’t yet have it.
22 And of some have compassion, making a difference:
23 And others save with fear, pulling them out of the fire; hating even the garment spotted by the flesh.
24 Now unto him that is able to keep you from falling, and to present you faultless before the presence of his glory with exceeding joy,
25 To the only wise God our Savior, be glory and majesty, dominion and power, both now and ever. Amen
It is not a question of can you lose your salvation but can you fall away from the faith through sin or deception. You can’t lose something you don’t yet have and are still working out with fear and trembling as you are to do with salvation. Here are scriptures on BELIEVERS falling away or becoming apostate that totally refutes the once saved always saved damnable heresy whose fruit is remaining in sin instead of being delivered from it.
Things Children of God Can Do:
1. Fall from grace – Gal. 5:1-4,13
2. Be led away with error – 2 Pet. 3:17
3. Err from the truth – James 5:19-20
4. Weak brother may perish – 1 Cor. 8:11
5. Fall into condemnation – James 5:12
6. Be moved away from the hope – Col. 1:21-23
7. Deny the Lord who bought them – 2 Pet. 2:1
8. Depart from the living God – Heb. 3:12
9. Can be a castaway – 1 Cor. 9:27
10. Can become accursed children – 2 Pet. 2:14
Galatians 5:4 “You have been severed from Christ, you who are seeking to be justified by law; you have fallen from grace.”
John 15:5-6 “I am the vine, you are the branches; he who abides in Me, and I in him, he bears much fruit; for apart from Me you can do nothing. If anyone does not abide in Me, he is thrown away as a branch, and dries up; and they gather them, and cast them into the fire, and they are burned.”
Romans 11:19-23 “You will say then, “Branches were broken off so that I might be grafted in.” Quite right, they were broken off for their unbelief, but you stand by your faith. Do not be conceited, but fear; for if God did not spare the natural branches, neither will He spare you. Behold then the kindness and severity of God; to those who fell, severity, but to you, God’s kindness, if you continue in His kindness; otherwise you also will be cut off. And they also, if they do not continue in their unbelief, will be grafted in; for God is able to graft them in again.”
Hebrews 6:4-6 For in the case of those who have once been enlightened and have tasted of the heavenly gift and have been made partakers of the Holy Spirit, and have tasted the good word of God and the powers of the age to come, and then have fallen away, it is impossible to renew them again to repentance, since they again crucify to themselves the Son of God, and put Him to open shame.
Hebrews 10:26-27 For if we go on sinning willfully after receiving the knowledge of the truth, there no longer remains a sacrifice for sins, but a certain terrifying expectation of judgment, and the fury of a fire which will consume the adversaries.”
Hebrews 10:38-39 “But My righteous one shall live by faith; And if he shrinks back, My soul has no pleasure in him. But we are not of those who shrink back to destruction, but of those who have faith to the preserving of the soul.”
Acts 20:17,28-30 “And from Miletus he sent to Ephesus and called to him the elders of the church.” … “I know that after my departure savage wolves will come in among you, not sparing the flock; and from among your own selves men will arise, speaking perverse things, to draw away the disciples after them.”
1 Timothy 1:18-21 “fight the good fight, keeping faith and a good conscience, which some have rejected and suffered shipwreck in regard to their faith. Among these are HYMENAEUS and Alexander”
2 Timothy 2:16-18 But avoid worldly and empty chatter, for it will lead to further ungodliness, and their talk will spread like gangrene. Among them are HYMENAEUS and Philetus, men who have gone astray from the truth saying that the resurrection has already taken place, and thus they upset the faith of some.
1 Timothy 4:1 “But the Spirit explicitly says that in later times some will fall away from the faith, paying attention to deceitful spirits and doctrines of demons”
1 Timothy 6:20-21 “O Timothy, guard what has been entrusted to you, avoiding worldly and empty chatter and the opposing arguments of what is falsely called “knowledge”-which some have professed and thus gone astray from the faith.”
2 Peter 2:1 “But false prophets also arose among the people, just as there will also be false teachers among you, who will secretly introduce damnable heresies, even denying the Master who bought them, bringing swift destruction upon themselves.”
2 Peter 3:17 “You therefore, beloved, knowing this beforehand, be on your guard lest, being carried away by the error of unprincipled men, you fall from your own steadfastness”
2 John 8-9 “Watch yourselves, that you might not lose what we have accomplished, but that you may receive a full reward. Anyone who goes too far and does not abide in the teaching of Christ, does not have God; the one who abides in the teaching, he has both the Father and the Son.”
1 Timothy 6:9-10 “But those who want to get rich fall into temptation and a snare and many foolish and harmful desires which plunge men into ruin and destruction. For the love of money is a root of all sorts of evil, and some by longing for it have wandered away from the faith, and pierced themselves with many a pang.”
2 Peter 2:20-22 “For if after they have escaped the defilements of the world by the knowledge of the Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, they are again entangled in them and are overcome, the last state has become worse for them than the first. For it would be better for them not to have known the way of righteousness, than having known it, to turn away from the holy commandment delivered to them. It has happened to them according to the true proverb, “A dog returns to its own vomit,” and, “A sow, after washing, returns to wallowing in the mire.””
James 5:19-20 “My brethren, if any among you strays from the truth, and one turns him back, let him know that he who turns a sinner from the error of his way will save his soul from death, and will cover a multitude of sins.
Revelation 2:4-5 “‘But I have this against you, that you have left your first love. ‘Remember therefore from where you have fallen, and repent and do the deeds you did at first; or else I am coming to you, and will remove your lampstand out of its place-unless you repent.”
Revelation 3:5 “‘He who overcomes shall thus be clothed in white garments; and I will not erase his name from the book of life, and I will confess his name before My Father, and before His angels.
Revelation 3:16-17 ‘So because you are lukewarm, and neither hot nor cold, I will spit you out of My mouth. ‘Because you say, “I am rich, and have become wealthy, and have need of nothing,” and you do not know that you are wretched and miserable and poor and blind and naked”
Ezekiel 18:24-26 “But when a righteous man turns away from his righteousness, commits iniquity, and does according to all the abominations that a wicked man does, will he live? All his righteous deeds which he has done will not be remembered for his treachery which he has committed and his sin which he has committed; for them he will die. “Yet you say, ‘The way of the Lord is not right.’ Hear now, O house of Israel! Is My way not right? Is it not your ways that are not right? “When a righteous man turns away from his righteousness, commits iniquity, and dies because of it, for his iniquity which he has committed he will die.”
The fact the Bible exhorts to faithfulness proves one can be lost
be steadfast immovable: 1 Cor 15:58
If these qualities are yours…2 Pe 1:5-11
we will reap if we do not grow weary: Gal 6:9
be faithful unto death and I will give crown of life: Rev 2:10
practice these things and God will be with you: Phil 4:9
Man has a free will: Josh 24:15 to argue otherwise is nonsense and is a veiled form of existentialism
The Bible clearly prophesied some would fall away: Acts 20:28; 1 Ti 4:1
Christians are to restore the fallen: Gal 6:1; Jas 5:19-20
If you do not forgive others, God will not forgive you!
So why are so many in the pulpit or in the five fold ministry today not grieved over the rampant sin and demonic doctrines in the church if Jesus is coming for a Glorious church without spot or wrinkle and for a bride who has made herself ready? Rev. 19 Not all Christians are raptured. Only those that fear Him and honor His name and sacrifice will escape what is coming in the day of the Lord. How we live matters. Then it will be very evident who serves the Lord and who just thinks they do.
We need to have a love for the truth which is who Jesus is. We say we love Him but will not do what He says. We call Him the Truth but reject His truth when He is faithful to bring it in our deception. We reject His truth when He tries to pull down our mental strongholds that we defiantly defend due to pride. He is only doing what He died to do in saving us in our deception. We say He is the Way but do not follow Him. We say we trust in Him to be saved, yet when He provides what we need in order to save us, we reject it. Do we really trust Him if we are not even aware that He supplies that which is needed in our wilderness of life and do not recognize Him at work in order to utilize what He is providing. Most people in the church are not experiencing the God of the word. Only approximate 3% of Christians operate in the gifts of the spirit. We should all be experiencing the supernatural moves of God in our lives and be able to discern if it is God or the devil. We have not exercised our discernment in order to mature. We swallow everything but the truth and the fruit reveals it. Experiencing the God of the word should be a normal part of our everyday life, yet most do not experience Him because they are not submitted. We call Jesus Lord but do not do what He says. Our actions do not match our confession. We call Him the life, yet many do not receive His life or strength in their weakness, comfort in their sorrows, truth in their deception, provision in their needs. Living water in their dry times. Many do not even hear His voice yet claim to be in a relationship or covenant with Him. How can that be?
Why are so many in the ministry not willing to deliver up to Jesus the just rewards of His sacrifice to whom you will have to give an account? You will be judged more severely for those whom He entrusted in your care? Not everyone claiming to be a Christian actually is and we are responsible for that. The question is, what are we going to do about it?
Repent and wake up. His coming is closer than when we first believed and people are going to hell believing they are saved and that should scare and grieve all of us. If it doesn’t maybe you are the first one needing to be born again of water and the Holy Spirit.
As for me, I intend on doing what He called me to do in delivering up to Jesus the just rewards of His sacrifice. Preparing a bride who made herself ready while redirecting traffic at the gates of hell. I invite you to join me!
A VOICE CRYING OUT IN THE WILDERNESS MAKING STRAIGHT THE PATHS! COMING IN THE SPIRIT OF ELIJAH! AS IT WAS THE FIRST TIME, SO IT IS THE SECOND!
