John, Jesus and Baptism

Alot of people are not sure if we get our Baptism through the sprinkling of Water or through some other way, so lets ask John himself.

Mark 1: 4 John the baptizer appeared  in the wilderness, preaching a baptism of repentance for the forgiveness of sins. 5 And there went out to him all the country of Judea, and all the people of Jerusalem; and they were baptized by him in the river Jordan, confessing their sins. 6 Now John was clothed with camel’s hair, and had a leather girdle around his waist, and ate locusts and wild honey. 7 And he preached, saying, “After me comes he who is mightier than I, the thong of whose sandals I am not worthy to stoop down and untie. 8 I have baptized you with water; but he will baptize you with the Holy Spirit.”

The bold part is where John says that the Baptism authority will be given over to someone greater than him. Jesus is the Baptizer and he will Baptize those who believe after thay have repented from their Sins.

In Jesus name Amen.

The "wise" Scribe

In the book of Mark there is a moment when one of the Scribes has a moment with Jesus where it seems he had a clue as to who Jesus is.  Mark 12: 28 And one of the scribes came up and heard them disputing with one another, and seeing that he answered them well, asked him, “Which commandment is the first of all?” 29 Jesus answered, “The first is, ‘Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God, the Lord is one; 30 and you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind, and with all your strength.’ 31 The second is this, ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’ There is no other commandment greater than these.” 32 And the scribe said to him, “You are right, Teacher; you have truly said that he is one, and there is no other but he; 33 and to love him with all the heart, and with all the understanding, and with all the strength, and to love one’s neighbor as oneself, is much more than all whole burnt offerings and sacrifices.” 34 And when Jesus saw that he answered wisely, he said to him, “You are not far from the kingdom of God.” And after that no one dared to ask him any question.

I guess he was the first of them to answer something correctly.

In Jesus name AMEN.

Do not Pray to the dead

Many people today pray to somone, or tries to talk to someone who is dead, be it their deceased Mother or the Mother of Christ they are never capable of answering us in the book of Isaiah we are told that Abraham and Israel (Jacob renamed Israel, Genesis 35:10 God said to him, “Your name is Jacob, but you will no longer be called Jacob; your name will be Israel.” So he named him Israel.) does not acknowledge us, because they are incapable of doing so, if you pray to one who is dead you're basically treating them is they were Omnipresent and Omniscience.

Isaiah 63:16
For you are our Father,  though Abraham does not know us,
and Israel does not acknowledge us;  you, O Lord, are our Father,  our Redeemer from of old is your name.

Please do not be fooled by the traditions of men, do not get involved in Pagan customs make sure you question your Pastor or anyone else who tells you to pray to the dead because this is a dangerous path to take especially if you're Christian because you are robbing God and Jesus of their Honor.

Was Jesus body stolen by his disciples to hide him?

No, well given that we take the Bible as being The Word of God we can see the book of Matthew chapter 28 verse 11-15answering the question,  we can see that 'the elders and the chief priests' (reference to the Phaisees?) Paid off the 2 Roman guards who were near the tomb 11 While the women were on their way, some of the guards  went into the city and reported to the chief priests everything that had happened. 12 When the chief priests had met with the elders and devised a plan, they gave the soldiers a large sum of money, 13 telling them, “You are to say, ‘His disciples came during the night and stole him away  while we were asleep.’  then they would try to cover their deception up by distracting Pilate 14 If this report gets to the governor,  we will satisfy him and keep you out of trouble.”   and of course the Guards took the bribe.  15 So the soldiers took the money and did as they were instructed. And this story has been widely circulated among the Jews to this very day.

So when we are questioned by unbelieves about whether or not Jesus body was taken away rather than gone to Heaven we sould quote this small passage.

In Jesus name AMEN

The Sheep and Goats

In the book of Matthew Chapter 25 verse 31-33 Jesus informs us that he will divide all nations into 2 distinct groups, The Sheep and the Goats he puts the Sheep on his right hand and the Goats on his left,  he says to the Sheep (verse 34) “Then the King will say to those on his right, ‘Come, you who are blessed by my Father; take your inheritance, the kingdom  prepared for you since the creation of the world.  35 For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in,  36 I needed clothes and you clothed me,  I was sick and you looked after me,  I was in prison and you came to visit me.’
Ther disciples not understanding asks when did they do those things for Jesus  (verse 37-39)  verse 40 “The King will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.’

So when we do those things for people Jesus considers it being a good deed unto himself.

Jesus scorns the Goats at his left hand verse 41-46
41 “Then he will say to those on his left, ‘Depart from me,  you who are cursed, into the eternal fire prepared for the devil and his angels.42 For I was hungry and you gave me nothing to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me nothing to drink, 43 I was a stranger and you did not invite me in, I needed clothes and you did not clothe me, I was sick and in prison and you did not look after me.’

44 “They also will answer, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry or thirsty or a stranger or needing clothes or sick or in prison, and did not help you?’

45 “He will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did not do for one of the least of these, you did not do for me.

46 “Then they will go away to eternal punishment, but the righteous to eternal life.
Will you be a Sheep or a Goat??
In Jesus name AMEN

Jesus second coming (rapture)

The mainstream Churches still teach even after the Lies given to them by Harold Camping and his "predictions" sbout when Jesus was coming to rapture them to Heaven.  Let us remember Harold is not the teacher, your local Pastor is not a teacher none of them are teachers but rather Jesus is the teacher HE has the authority.

Matt 7:28-29  When Jesus had finished saying these things, the crowds were amazed at his teaching, 29 because he taught as one who had authority, and not as their teachers of the law. Mar 1:21-22
“They went into Capernaum; and immediately on the Sabbath He entered the synagogue and began to teach. 22 They were amazed at His teaching; for He was teaching them as one having authority, and not as the scribes.
 He could teach about God ... because he was with Him...
John 1:1 “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2 He was in the beginning with God”
John 14:9
“Jesus said to him, "... He who has seen Me has seen the Father; how can you say, 'Show us the Father'?” He could teach about Heaven ... for He had come from there...
John 6:33 and 3833 For the bread of God is the bread that comes down from heaven and gives life to the world.” 38 “For I came down from heaven, not to do mine own will, but the will of him that sent me.” John 3:13 and 31 No one has ever gone into heaven except the one who came from heaven—the Son of Man The one who comes from above is above all; the one who is from the earth belongs to the earth, and speaks as one from the earth. The one who comes from heaven is above all.We can see that because he is from Heaven that HE is the Master Teacher.
In order for us to know when Jesus will come if directly from his own words.

Matthew Chapter 24 Verse 36 “But about that day or hour no one knows, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father"

Jesus continues to expand on this issue by giving us more descriptions of us not knowing when something is supposed to happen, he continues up until verse 51 and the chapter.

38 For in the days before the flood, people were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage,  up to the day Noah entered the ark; 39 and they knew nothing about what would happen until the flood came and took them all away. That is how it will be at the coming of the Son of Man. 40 Two men will be in the field; one will be taken and the other left. 41 Two women will be grinding with a hand mill; one will be taken and the other left.
42 “Therefore keep watch, because you do not know on what day your Lord will come.  43 But understand this: If the owner of the house had known at what time of night the thief was coming,  he would have kept watch and would not have let his house be broken into.  44 So you also must be ready,  because the Son of Man will come at an hour when you do not expect him.
45 “Who then is the faithful and wise servant,  whom the master has put in charge of the servants in his household to give them their food at the proper time? 46 It will be good for that servant whose master finds him doing so when he returns. 47 Truly I tell you, he will put him in charge of all his possessions.48 But suppose that servant is wicked and says to himself, ‘My master is staying away a long time,’ 49 and he then begins to beat his fellow servants and to eat and drink with drunkards.50 The master of that servant will come on a day when he does not expect him and at an hour he is not aware of. 51 He will cut him to pieces and assign him a place with the hypocrites, where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.

Ananias and Sapphira

In the Book of Acts chapter 5 is a short story involving a married couple who sold some property and they were supposed to give all the money away, when questioned by the Apostles, Ananias admitted he kept some of the profits for himself, he drops dead instantly, when his wife is questioned aswell she lied aswell she decided to chose her liar husband over her promises to God never to Sin and she died too and from this short lesson we can learn never to allow ourselves to be come sinners because of our most loved one because like Ananias and Sapphira we might never have a chance to repent.

Acts Chapter 5

Ananias and Sapphira

1 But there was a certain man named Ananias who, with his wife, Sapphira, sold some property. 2 He brought part of the money to the apostles, claiming it was the full amount. With his wife’s consent, he kept the rest.

3 Then Peter said, “Ananias, why have you let Satan fill your heart? You lied to the Holy Spirit, and you kept some of the money for yourself. 4 The property was yours to sell or not sell, as you wished. And after selling it, the money was also yours to give away. How could you do a thing like this? You weren’t lying to us but to God!”

5 As soon as Ananias heard these words, he fell to the floor and died. Everyone who heard about it was terrified. 6 Then some young men got up, wrapped him in a sheet, and took him out and buried him.

7 About three hours later his wife came in, not knowing what had happened. 8 Peter asked her, “Was this the price you and your husband received for your land?”

“Yes,” she replied, “that was the price.”

9 And Peter said, “How could the two of you even think of conspiring to test the Spirit of the Lord like this? The young men who buried your husband are just outside the door, and they will carry you out, too.”

10 Instantly, she fell to the floor and died. When the young men came in and saw that she was dead, they carried her out and buried her beside her husband. 11 Great fear gripped the entire church and everyone else who heard what had happened.
Keep the Faith and be strong and aware.
In Jesus name AMEN!

Pharisees traditions make God's commandments of none effect

 Ok so from these passages we can see that the modern Jews who are from their Pharisee traditions (originators of Judaism) make all the Old and New Testament laws of none effect meaning they don't obey the OT or NT laws so all you Judeo "Christians" need to recieve Jesus properly and stop worshipping Jewish people for you are not Christians no matter how many times you say Jesus' name you are Idol worshippers and you refuse to see what they teach not just about Jesus but you aswell.

Matthew 15

Then came to Jesus scribes and Pharisees, which were of Jerusalem, saying,
2 Why do thy disciples transgress the tradition of the elders? for they wash not their hands when they eat bread.
3 But he answered and said unto them, Why do ye also transgress the commandment of God by your tradition?
4 For God commanded, saying, Honour thy father and mother: and, He that curseth father or mother, let him die the death.
5 But ye say, Whosoever shall say to his father or his mother, It is a gift, by whatsoever thou mightest be profited by me;
6 And honour not his father or his mother, he shall be free. Thus have ye made the commandment of God of none effect by your tradition.
7 Ye hypocrites, well did Esaias prophesy of you, saying,
8 This people draweth nigh unto me with their mouth, and honoureth me with their lips; but their heart is far from me.
9 But in vain they do worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men.
10 And he called the multitude, and said unto them, Hear, and understand:
11 Not that which goeth into the mouth defileth a man; but that which cometh out of the mouth, this defileth a man.
12 Then came his disciples, and said unto him, Knowest thou that the Pharisees were offended, after they heard this saying?
13 But he answered and said, Every plant, which my heavenly Father hath not planted, shall be rooted up.
14 Let them alone: they be blind leaders of the blind. And if the blind lead the blind, both shall fall into the ditch.

So "Christians" are you being led by the blind?
