The Wicked Movies in the United States

This is the satanic filth that wicked people in this country watch. It’s, unfortunately, the number one movie this week. America is cursed because of people’s love for cursing (523 curse words!!!).
Psalm 109:17-18, “As he loved cursing, so let it come unto him: as he delighted not in blessing, so let it be far from him. As he clothed himself with cursing like as with his garment, so let it come into his bowels like water, and like oil into his bones.”
It shows the horrible state of our country and it’s rejection of God and His commandments!!

Straight Outta Compton
(PaPaPa, B, Cap, LLL, VV, SS, NN, AAA, DD, MMM) Very strong pagan worldview with immoral revelry shown in excess, lawlessness, disrespect to those in authority, and debauchery, brief reference of Ice Cube’s conversion to Islam, but some light moral aspects in the fact that some of this immorality results in natural consequences, and some pro-capitalist content where one character gives a lecture on work and responsibility and ultimately becomes one of the most powerful and influential entrepreneurs; at least 285 “f” words, 220 other obscenities, 18 profanities (mostly GD’s and JC’s), many uses of the “n” word, sexual references to male and female genitalia; strong violence includes the police raid a criminal’s house with a battering ram that hits a person, multiple fist fights and brawls, multiple beatings (including by police officers), riots with vandalism, cars and buildings set on fire and stores looted, and man takes a baseball bat to a music executive’s office; one brief party scene with two depicted sexual situations, one of intercourse and one shot of oral sex, and many references and discussion of sex, including in rap songs; multiple parties with upper and rear female nudity, women in bathing suits, provocative dresses and outfits, and upper male nudity; heavy drinking and drunkenness throughout the movie; implied drug use, cocaine lines and piles of marijuana shown, couple smokes a marijuana cigarette; and, greed, blackmail, disrespect, revelry, and gambling.

Baphomet & the Roman Catholic Jesus

Baphomet
This is a short study to show the Roman Catholic Jesus is related to the satanic Baphomet. Notice first the picture of the statue of Baphomet, which was recently in the news. The hand sign of the first two fingers together is satanic, as shown on the statue. This satanic hand gesture is used by the Roman Catholic priests when they make the sign of the cross. It is sometimes called the benediction gesture and is used by the priests when they perform blessings. Notice also that it is a main gesture of the Baphomet statue. It sticks out more than the other features and it gives an important message that this is the sign of Baphomet. Notice next the Roman Catholic pictures of Jesus Christ. The Roman Catholic Jesus is giving a satanic salute. Just one more evidence that the Roman Catholic church is anti-Christ.

The Truth About – “By His Stripes We Are Healed”

The two main verses in this Bible study are Isaiah 53:5 and 1 Peter 2:24. 1 Peter 2:24 says, “Who his own self bare our sins in his own body on the tree, that we, being dead to sins, should live unto righteousness: by whose stripes ye were healed.” Isaiah 53:5 says, “But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed.”

Today there is the popular belief that when the Bible says, “with his stripes we are healed” it is talking about a physical healing. This belief is made popular by Preachers who tell people what they want to hear. These Preachers say that you can be healed if you have enough faith, because your healing has already been purchased by Jesus Christ through His stripes. They tell the people this for different purposes – to keep the people coming, to sell more books, to have bigger offerings. These Preachers teach people to lie by telling them their words have power, and by telling them to believe and speak that they are already healed even when they aren’t.

People will fall for these lies because they want to be healed. The Preachers take advantage of people’s desires and play on them. You’ve heard people say, “In Jesus’ name I don’t have the flu. I am healed” even when they were plainly very sick. They are lying when they talk like that, because the truth is they are NOT healed. Those Preachers are feeding off people’s infirmities, which is very evil in itself, and taking advantage of their desire to be healed. And many people are so desirous to be healed, that they will reach for anything. When a popular Preacher tells them Jesus died for their physical healing, they grasp it like someone who’s drowning grasps a life preserver.

This is Truth From the Book. The truth is, these verses are speaking of a spiritual healing – the healing of our soul. The context is our sins. Notice Isaiah 53:5 speaks of transgressions and iniquities. Isaiah 53:6 says, “the LORD hath laid on him the iniquity of us all.” Isaiah 53:8 says, “for the transgression of my people was he stricken.” Transgressions and iniquities are other words for sin. Jesus healed the sin in our soul, taking it away.

When Jesus died for us, He died for our sins. He didn’t die for our physical healing, for if He did, then everyone who gets saved should be immediately healed of any disease or malady they have. Jesus didn’t die for our cancer or heart disease or infectious diseases or neurological disorders. It says He was wounded for our transgressions, our sins. When a person gets saved, he immediately receives eternal life. It is complete a salvation, not a partial salvation. In the same way, if Christ died for our physical healing, when a person gets saved their body would be made whole, not partially but completely. If Christ died for our physical healing, then every sinner who gets saved would be healed immediately. Obviously that doesn’t happen, and the reason that doesn’t happen is because Jesus didn’t die for our physical healing. He died to heal our soul from sin.

Remember, you can learn theology from Hymns. There are Hymns that speak of healing, but it is the healing of the soul, not the body. Here are a couple:

No Not One
There’s not a friend like the lowly Jesus,
No, not one! No, not one!
None else could heal all our soul’s diseases,
No, not one! No, not one!

Jesus, Lover of My Soul
Plenteous grace with Thee is found,
Grace to cover all my sin;
Let the healing streams abound;
Make and keep me pure within.

It is only in the last 50 years or so that this belief, that Jesus died for our physical healing, has been propagated by many Preachers. There is NO evidence that this belief was the norm in previous generations. So let’s take a look at Bible Commentaries down through the ages. Notice how all these Commentaries speak about the healing of our soul from sin and despair.

Commentaries on 1 Peter 2:24
Adam Clarke’s Commentary
“By whose stripes ye were healed. The apostle refers here to Isaiah 53:4-6;
and he still keeps the case of these persecuted servants in view, and
encourages them to suffer patiently by the example of Christ, who was
buffeted and scourged, and who bore all this that the deep and inveterate
wounds, inflicted on their souls by sin, might be healed.”

Matthew Henry’s Commentary
“Christ’s death was designed not only for an example of patience under sufferings, but he bore our sins; he bore the punishment of them, and thereby satisfied Divine justice. Hereby he takes them away from us. The fruits of Christ’s sufferings are the death of sin, and a new holy life of righteousness; for both which we have an example, and powerful motives, and ability to perform also, from the death and resurrection of Christ. And our justification; Christ was bruised and crucified as a sacrifice for our sins, and by his stripes the diseases of our souls are cured.”

Pulpit Commentary
“They were to learn patience of him, and to remember to their comfort that those stripes which he, the holy Son of God, condescended to suffer are to them that believe healing and salvation. Faith in the crucified Savior lifts the Christian out of the sickness of sin into the health of righteousness.”

Gill’s Exposition of the Bible
“Sin is a disease, a natural and hereditary one, an epidemic distemper, that reaches to all men, and to all the powers and faculties of their souls, and members of their bodies; and which is nauseous and loathsome, and in itself mortal and incurable; nor can it be healed by any creature, or anything that a creature can do. Christ is the only physician, and his blood the balm and sovereign medicine; this cleanses from all sin; through it is the remission of sin, which is meant by healing; for healing of diseases, and forgiving iniquities, is one and the same thing.”

Benson Commentary
“By whose stripes ye were healed — Of your spiritual disorders: evils infinitely greater than any which the cruelty of the severest masters can bring upon you.“

Barnes’ Notes on the Bible
“The idea seems to be that the Saviour was scourged or whipped; and that the effect on us is the same in producing spiritual healing, or in recovering us from our faults, as if we had been scourged ourselves. By faith we see the bruises inflicted on him, the black and blue spots made by beating; we remember that they were on account of our sins. Ye were healed – Sin is often spoken of as a disease, and redemption from it as a restoration from a deadly malady.”

Commentaries on Isaiah 53:5
Gill’s Exposition of the Bible
“and with his stripes we are healed. Sin is a disease belonging to all men, a natural, hereditary, nauseous, and incurable one. Forgiving sin is a healing of this disease; and this is to be had, and in no other way, than through the stripes and wounds, the blood and sacrifice, of the Son of God. Christ is a wonderful physician; he heals by taking the sicknesses of his people upon himself, by bearing their sins, and being wounded and bruised for them, and by his enduring blows, and suffering death itself for them.”

Barnes’ Notes on the Bible
“We are healed – literally, it is healed to us; or healing has happened to us. The healing here referred to, is spiritual healing, or healing from sin. Pardon of sin, and restoration to the favor of God, are not unfrequently represented as an act of healing. The figure is derived from the fact that awakened and convicted sinners are often represented as crushed, broken, bruised by the weight of their transgressions, and the removal of the load of sin is represented as an act of healing. ‘I said, O Lord, be merciful unto me; heal my soul, for I have sinned against thee,’ Psalm 41:4. ‘Have mercy upon me, O Lord, for I am weak; O Lord, heal me, for my bones are vexed,’ Psalm 6:2. ‘Who forgiveth all thine, iniquities; who healeth all thy diseases,’ Psalm 103:3. The idea here is, that the Messiah would be scourged; and that it would be by that scourging that health would be imparted to our souls.”

It is clear that when the Bible says by His stripes we are healed, it is NOT talking about a physical healing, but a spiritual healing. The healing of our soul. The truth is, there are no verses that tell us Jesus died for our physical maladies. Jesus died for our sins.

Now let me make clear.  I do believe in physical healing.  I believe Jesus heals today.  I believe in the power of prayer that can move God to heal someone.  I believe in miraculous healings.  I believe that we can anoint someone and pray over them for a healing.  But I do not believe that Jesus died for our physical healings.  If we are healed, then His stripes did contribute to that healing.

God bless.

Street Preaching – Tulsa, OK 12/19/2014

I had some spare time Friday, December 19, 2014, so decided to join some fellow street preachers and do about 15 minutes of street preaching.  Here is a short clip.

John Chapter 3

Truth From the Book presents a Bible study on John Chapter 3. The whole Bible is the word of God, but some Chapters stand out. John Chapter 3 is one such chapter.

False Christian Religions

Truth From the Book presents a video on false Christian religions. These religions claim to be Christian, and many use a variation of the word “Christian” in their name. This study is not exhaustive, but covers the main religions that claim to be Christian. They are really masquerades.

Life Church – A Worldly, Modern Church

July 2014Monster

July 2014 Monster

Sunday, July 27, 2014, I went to LifeChurch to observe one of their services. I wanted to see, for myself, what a modern church is like. I can tell you it was amazing what I saw. First, the music was very loud. As you enter the sanctuary, they have boxes attached to the doors full of ear plugs, for those who can’t handle the very loud rock music. Do you know why? I do. It’s because the music is so worldly and loud that a Christian who goes to a normal church service, in order to enjoy the service, has to wear the earplugs to block out some of sound. Do you think that is holy and true? Do you think music that is so loud that you have to wear earplugs is pleasing to the Lord? The music was about as worldly as you can get, with the lead singer in skinny jeans jumping around, and with a haircut where he had to keep pushing the hair out of his eyes. I thought maybe he forgot to use hairspray. The lyrics were lame and like most modern “Christian” songs, didn’t mention righteousness, the blood of Christ, holiness, the Trinity, grace, etc. They even had a guitar solo, just like the worldly rock concerts. And that is the main problem with LifeChurch. It is world friendly. It sounds like the world and acts like the world.

The funny thing is, the speaker kept talking about being deceived by satan, and also about living a life separate from the world, but at the same time, the service was as close to the world as you can get. The speaker said they would do everything just short of sin to try to get the message out. In other words, they are going to get as close to sin as you can get (which you can tell by their service). But why would a Christian want to get that close to sin? And just where is that line, where sin begins? If you don’t know exactly where that line is, how do you know you’re not sinning when you try to come right up to that line? You would think that a Christian would want to get as far from sin as you can get. But not at this church. Do you know why he said that? I do. It’s because sin is attractive to the world, and they want to be a popular church by being attractive to the world. I’m not sure why a Christian or a church would want to be attractive to the world when the Bible speaks otherwise (see James 4:4 and 1 John 2:15-16). They want to make people feel comfortable while they live like the world. They want to tell people to change their life by becoming a Christian, but they don’t have to change the way they dress, the music they listen to, the way they talk, what they drink, etc. You will NEVER hear a sermon on those subjects at LifeChurch.

As far as God’s word goes, I looked but could find no one who brought a Bible. After all, why would you need the word of God in a worldly church service? I looked on the chairs when people were standing to sing. I looked at people coming in the door. I never saw one person who had a Bible, other than the one my friend brought. I didn’t bring one because I knew where I was going – to a worldly church where people don’t have to bring a Bible. They don’t put any Scripture on the screen, but there are some verses printed in the bulletin. The verses are from the new versions, which is strange, because when the speaker quoted a verse, he quoted from the King James. Do you know why? I do. It’s because the new versions take the word “Christ” out of the verse he quoted (Philippians 4:13). I don’t know if a leader over thousands of people can be that ignorant, but doesn’t he realize that his versions are so bad that he can’t even quote them? He also quoted the King James because the King James Bible’s cadence and wording is such that it is very easy to memorize. But the congregation doesn’t know the difference, because they aren’t taught those things.

As for the picture, does that look like something Christian or Biblical? The picture shows a monster, one of the monsters in the movie Frozen, but a monster nonetheless. Ask yourself, does a monster glorify God or lead people to the Lord? Is it something that a church should do? The lobby was turned into a movie set. The Bible was nowhere to be found. The theme of the sermons for the last four weeks was “At the Movies.” There was a notice before the main sermon like you see at the movies. It said the sermon is PG 13 and not appropriate for young children, and parents were strongly cautioned about it so they could take their children out if they didn’t want them to see it. What kind of Bible message is so bad that a child shouldn’t see it? Why should we be given a caution before a church sermon that it is not appropriate for a child to see? Do you know why? I do. It’s because they are so worldly, and are trying to be like to world so much, that they will exclude children to make the service popular. They’re using movies of the world in trying to give truth, instead of the Bible.

The funny thing is, the speaker said that one of the tools of the devil (he never called the devil by name, but called him the “evil one”) is that he lies. Yet he is using the lies of the devil (worldly movies) to give Bible truths. You can’t get truth from the lies of the devil. Luke 6:43 says, “…neither doth a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit.” John 8:44, speaking of the devil, says he “abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.” Don’t you think, if you want Bible truths, that you should just use the Bible? Do you think using worldly movies is holy and TRUE and Biblical? Do you think Jesus would approve of a message that young children shouldn’t see? Remember what He said to His Disciples? “Suffer little children, and forbid them not, to come unto me: for of such is the kingdom of heaven.” Matthew 19:14.

This church is going against the teachings of Jesus Christ and the Bible, and is trying to use the world to discover the truths of the Bible, instead of using the Bible itself. There are many examples in the Bible we can use to find the truth in it’s pages. LifeChurch is a worldly church for the end times. A church like this will, eventually, come out as accepting homosexuality. I’ve been around people who attend LifeChurch and who love LifeChurch, and they were very worldly – they cussed, drank, etc. I know the reason they like LifeChurch. They don’t get real preaching about sin and how to live a true Christian life, and how to be separate from the world. They are not convicted about their sin, for their pastor will NEVER give them a true, convicting message aimed at their sins and based on the word of God! The messages are generic slop that smells like the world, and as a result, the people who attend look like the world, talk like the world and walk like the world.

Video – The Crucifixion

Truth From the Book presents a short video on the Crucifixion.

Witnessing

Truth From the Book presents a video on Witnessing. A Christian should be a witness to the world, not just in how they live their life, but an actual witness to others using witnessing tools. This video explains different ways to witness and the tools that a Christian can use. Witnessing is commanded by the word of God. You might be the only Christian in the world you live in, be it work or play. May you be bold and witness to others you might come in contact with in your world.
