Why A Bible Believer Is Supporting Donald Trump For President Of The United States

The political elites hate him and are spending millions to try and stop him. I will be honest, when Trump first said he was running I really didn't care and hardly followed it. But now in my 7th year of writing for NTEB, I have become quite adept at looking for the "story within the story" to try and get at the truth. When I saw the hatred for Trump, not just from the loony Left but from the Republicans and Conservatives, I have to tell you my ears perked up. "Why did they hate him so much?", I wondered. Then it became clear.

Donald Trump will give the elites and the Establishment absolute fits from his first day in office, and I find that prospect very satisfying.

“Righteousness exalteth a nation: but sin is a reproach to any people.” Proverbs 14:34 (KJV)

First off, to all my many friends I know that this article is not necessary because you know my heart. Your friendship and support is so very dear to me. To my many critics who rarely read much more than the headlines before commenting, I know that no explanation will satisfy so consider this article more of your necessary fuel to continue criticizing. And lastly, to Donald Trump, I know this is not the type of “endorsement” you will want to have but please know that all of what I say here is spoken in love and truth. America needs a strong leader, and I truly feel that you will be that for this country.

“Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.” John 3:3 (KJV)

Donald Trump is not a Christian. By his own testimony, Donald Trump is not born again and as such cannot be considered a Christian in any other way than in name only. Trump has never admitted to being a sinner in need of a Saviour, in fact he has said the opposite. NewsMax said “Donald Trump said Saturday that ‘I am not sure that I have’ ever asked God for forgiveness, telling the 2015 Iowa Family Leadership Summit that “I just go on and try to do a better job from there.” Donald Trump attends a Presbyterian church which is one of the most apostate, Laodicean pro-LGBT churches you could find. His attempts to quote the Bible ala the now infamous “two Corinthians” controversy at Liberty University is the stuff that viral tweets and videos are made of. That’s the bad stuff, let’s look at the positive side now.

But America is not a theocracy and we are not electing a pastor, right? Right. With Donald Trump in the White House we get someone who will be quite supportive to Christians, which will be a very welcome change after 8 years of having the “not Muslim” Barry Soetoro in the Oval Office. And just maybe, with all the Bible waving he does, one of these days someone in his inner circle might just get him to open that Bible and show him how to get saved.

“Set a watch, O LORD, before my mouth; keep the door of my lips.” Psalms 141:3 (KJV)

Donald Trump has a nasty habit of swearing during speeches. Yep, I don’t like that one bit and cringe everytime I hear it. But after 8 years of Obama I have gotten quite used to cringing at comments coming out of Washington. Donald’s handlers need to fix this immediately. There is no plus side to this one. Are you listening, Donald?

The political elites hate him and are spending millions to try and stop him. I will be honest, when Trump first said he was running I really didn’t care and hardly followed it. But now in my 7th year of writing for NTEB, I have become quite adept at looking for the “story within the story” to try and get at the truth. When I saw the hatred for Trump, not just from the loony Left but from the Republicans and Conservatives, I have to tell you my ears perked up. “Why did they hate him so much?“, I wondered. Then it became clear. Trump is the anti-politician who cannot be bought because of his vast personal wealth, and he is also not a politician. He not only does not fit “the mold”, he seems to be quite intent on smashing the mold. Trump is a businessman who wants to not only make the deal but to make the deal work. The NWO elites hate him because he is not one of them. He will not toe the party line because he is not part of the party. He will give the elites and the Establishment absolute fits from his first day in office, and I find that prospect very satisfying.

If it were not for Donald Trump I would not be voting. When I decided to abstain from voting in the 2014 midterms, many people slammed me at the time for doing that. But I could not vote because a). I cannot vote Democrat, and b). there were NO Republicans I trusted. Not one. But Republicans did vote, in record numbers in fact. So much so that it was the largest Republican victory in the House and Senate for generations. But what changed? Nothing. Every, single one of those Republicans who said “vote us in and we will repeal Obamacare” failed to keep that promise. In short, they lied right to our faces and not only that, they made backroom deals with Obama at every possible opportunity. The debt has gone up $4 billion since they took over. You cannot blame all that on Obama. It was the Republicans who lied to us Conservatives, who tricked us with false and empty promises they never intended on keeping. And it is the Republicans who want to stop Trump because Trump will not be part of their mess. Interestingly, all my Republican friends who blasted me for not voting in 2014 came back later and told me I was right.

Kenneth Copeland Says Ted Cruz Has Been ‘Called & Anointed’ By God To Be The Next President:

When a Christian criminal and fraud like prosperity preacher Kenneth Copeland announces that you have been “anointed by God to be president”, you need to run the other way as fast as you can. Copeland is a crook who tells lies and deceives millions while he picks their pockets.

So why not Ted Cruz? Ted Cruz is a slick and smooth politician who will “go along to get along”, and have no problem playing the game. He says he is a born again Christian, yet he associates with Laodicean bottom feeders like Kenneth Copeland and Jesse Duplantis who he had “pray over him” and “anoint him” to be president. In the Iowa primaries, he had his campaign falsely issue the announcement that Ben Carson had dropped out in an attempt to garner Carson’s delegate. That is not only lying, it is stealing as well. So go ahead and blast Trump all you like for his speech and rough mannerisms, but I don’t see him doing anything like that. Ted Cruz is a Christian and should know better than to resort to slimey politicians tricks like that, yet somehow doesn’t. Ted Cruz to me represents the status quo, and that is not what this country needs right now.

“Daniel answered and said, Blessed be the name of God for ever and ever: for wisdom and might are his: And he changeth the times and the seasons: he removeth kings, and setteth up kings: he giveth wisdom unto the wise, and knowledge to them that know understanding:” Daniel 2:20,21 (KJV)

Donald Trump is not the perfect candidate, far from it. Donald Trump has many faults, as do all of the candidates on both sides running for office. But ultimately it is God who will install the man or woman that He wants to sit there to accomplish His purposes in these end times. I have said for the past 7 years that Obama was elected, twice, because God wanted him in there as a judgment on America. NTEB is not endorsing any candidate for president, as that is beyond the mandate of this ministry. I am voting for Donald Trump as a private citizen, but am not telling anyone else to do the same. But for all you Christian Republican haters of Trump out there, don’t be a hypocrite. If your conscience will not allow you to vote for Trump for the nomination, then you better either abstain or vote Democrat come November.

Predictions for the two cents they are worth. As I see it, Donald Trump will be the far-and-away winner for the Republican party nomination for president. Hands down. Then, should he survive the coming assassination attempt(s) on his life, he will easily win in November in a landslide. He, out of all the candidates, knows how to run billion dollar businesses, and will put things in place to restore our economy. Donald Trump will solve our current Muslim migrant problem here at home, and unleash the military to solve the ISIS problem outside of our borders.

Throughout this entire process so far, Donald Trump has been the leader and all the other candidates have been trying to play catch-up with him. We are talking about immigration because Trump first brought it up. We are talking about Muslim migrants because Trump has the courage to call Islamic terrorism for what it is. We are talking about border security because Trump is going to build The Wall. We are talking about making America great again because Trump has that as his campaign slogan. So to me, it seems that if Trump, who has been operating as the consummate leader in this whole debate against career politicians, and eating their lunch at every step along the way, is able to do so well now that he will do very well as president. He has defied every expectation placed on him and exceeded far beyond that which any pundit thought he ever could. No other candidate in the field is doing that. Donald Trump is truly leading and showing that he knows how to be a leader and not just a politician.

Honestly, isn’t that what a president is supposed to do?

So Donald, drop me a line and let me open up a Bible and show you how you can be forgiven for all your sins by the shed blood of Jesus Christ. I will be more than happy to do that for the next president of the United States of America.

    It would be wonderful if you could lead him to Christ. I will pray you get that opportunity! Mr. Trump if you read this, what if this is the deal of a lifetime you’ve been searching for? What could it hurt? You can only gain by this eternal business presentation.

    • Amen, I would love to lead Donald Trump to the Lord, and if not me I will be praying the Lord will use one of us to do it.

      • ELLIE VARNER

        I pray for Donald Trump every day! I pray for his salvation and protection. He is what our country needs. I agree with everything you said in this article, it is almost as if I wrote it. I know God can change a vile sinner. I am living proof of that!

        • Acts2:38

          Absolutely, we all need Jesus. Praying for Trump is the very Christian thing to do.

        The election is probably a moot point as war has broke out in Syria. I would expect BHO to use this as a springboard to martial law. If not immediately, after the banks collapse and our economy is toast.

      • As i finished to read this article, now I don’t know which side of the Bible you are. Yound sound to me as a far side progressive. I have read DT books, haven’t you.

      • Blake Watson

        This article is so incredibly bias, that I cannot believe my eyes. This really casts a shadow on NTEB, and for now on, I’ll check twice when I read articles from here. And the fact that YOU tried to justify him and your opinions with the WORD OF GOD is utterly disgusting and abominable.

      • Greg Miller

        “He will not toe the party line…” Shouldn’t it be, “He will not tow the party line…”?

        Great article. Just don’t want typos to give fuel to the haters.

        • “Toe the line. “Toe the line” is an idiomatic expression meaning either to conform to a rule or standard, or to stand poised at the starting line in a footrace. Other phrases which were once used in the early 1800s and have the same meaning were toe the mark and toe the plank.” https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Toe_the_line

          Thx for writing! 🙂

        Geoffrey, many people have TRIED unsuccessfully to bring Donald Trump to CHRIST JESUS over the years of his life. His pastor whom he claims to see on “occasion” when it’s convenient to attend church. And the hundreds of bibles sent to him that he told us he GIVES away.
        He cannot even quote 1 scripture correctly because MONEY is his GOD, and the LUSTS of his father SATAN he will do!!!

        • Pistol Peter

          Dianne, if people just ignore you, will you go away? I’ve read through the comments and you’re just not getting it! You DON’T HAVE A GENUINE CHRISTIAN TO CHOOSE IN THIS ELECTION! They’re all New World Order players. Why are you so hard on Geoffrey? He only brought a news story to our attention; he didn’t threaten ANYBODY if they dare to vote for someone other than Trump! Why so mean-spirited, haughty, and domineering?

          You stated, “He cannot even quote 1 scripture correctly because MONEY is his GOD, and the LUSTS of his father SATAN he will do!!!”

          What guarantee do you have that your man, Cruz will not do the same? Do you know him on an individual level so much so, that you can with all good conscience promote him? I’ve seen people praying over him that I wouldn’t allow in my house, much less pray over me…

          I think Skywatcher, Screaming Eagle or somebody has it pretty well pegged…they’re all phony, and NOT going to be what you’re hoping for, and you’re going to be seriously let down. Accept that and move on. Have you shared Christ with anybody today? I’ll bet you talked a lot about the election though…

          • Dianne

            Pistol Peter, I talk towns listen to the HOLY SPIRT every day and speak about Jesus to everyone I get a chance too. I have lead many to Christ on their death beds and I will not move on because You say so. Satan is in Donald Trump and I will vote for the candidate that I believe is at least trying to serve the LORD of glory. I also will pray for their perfection in Christ Jesus.. Please take the time to read these scriptures before answering me again. John 13:1-5 Then you should examine your own heart to see if you are right with God yourself because you are hardly showing the spirit of unity to uphold the righteous and shun the evil doer.

            Psalm 106:3 BLESSED are they that KEEP JUDGEMENT, and he that DOETH RIGHTEOUS at ALL TIMES.

          • KY

            Pistol Peter,

            You are the one “not getting it” You have decided to support the most evil candidate running in the Republican primaries and so has Geoffrey, and you can’t square that with the scriptures. Geoffrey is actively campaigning for him on this website.

            Tit_1:16 They profess that they know God; but in works they deny him, being abominable, and disobedient, and unto every good work reprobate.

    • marlene

      I read Franklin Graham saying he has spoken to Trump and that Trump is, indeed, a believer in Jesus Christ, but just needs sometime to show it, and Graham said he has continued to preach to Trump and will support him for the Presidency. TRUMP is honest to a fault – he could have lied just like carson and cruz do,neither of which is either a christian or a conservative. If we get TRUMP into the Oval Office, we’ll be lucky and better off. If we get a true biblical christian into the Oval Office, it will be a miracle. I trust TRUMP and Rev Graham and know we’d be lucky to have TRUMP.

      • Hank

        Is this the same Franklin Graham that let a Catholic Bishop give the opening prayer at one of his meetings?

        http://the-end-time.blogspot.ca/2014/08/franklin-graham-part-of-new.html

        Can two walk together unless they agree?

        • Yes…thank you Hank…and the one who said that Cam Newton, who just had a baby with his girlfriend, and Peyton Manning (tons of issues) are good christians. The Grahams…are not what America thinks they are. Money, power, with some freemasonry mixed in perhaps.

        Let us pray with out ceasing for the next president of America. If my people, humble themselves and pray
        (2 Chronicles 7:14)

      • Gerry

        I think we see a lot of the signs of the last days revealed even in this political campaign in the United States. Deception, lack of discernment, labeling right wrong and wrong right, a falling away from the Truth.
        Satan knows how to play his cards and so do his disciples. They know how to fake it and pull the wool over your eyes. It’s really pretty disturbing to see how this is happening right now during the election campaign and people are falling for it left and right (politically and philosophically and could we say evangelically). The time of the end when we should be guarding against the wiles of the devil and yet what are voters displaying? Their ignorance and arrogance and lack of spiritual compliance. Laodicean lukewarmness. Be very careful who you side with or vote for. Remember God gives grace to the humble but He despises pride and self righteousness. And if you can’t determine who is running their own show and flogging his opponents with impunity, then you need to reprogram and get real. I’m not saying that the other candidates are flawless… they have their problems and issues as does all imperfect human beings. But this man at the top is a conniver and schemer and he will manipulate you and anyone else in order to get his way. He talks about restoring America to its greatness. Sorry folks, it probably isn’t going to happen. The Bible doesn’t even mention America in the last days. And he certainly isn’t going to make it happen apart from earnest prayer and repentance. There must be a turning from wickedness and much of this fellows past has been associated with life as it should not be, rebellion against a holy God. When a sinner comes to Christ in sincerity and turns from his wicked ways to be born again, his life will change; his affections will change; his speech will change; his actions will change. They become a new creature in Christ. God has moved in. And if that is not the evidence we see, then it is more than likely there has never been a change… he is still dead in sins and trespasses. And by the way a man of God will look to God for wisdom and guidance and instruction. If he says he has never asked for forgiveness, there’s a might big problem in trying to convince me or any other Christian that he is bona fide… you know… the real McCoy! I got a little upset when I saw the author of this article misconstrue the facts in railing at Cruz for having Copeland lay hands on him. I don’t question that he did it (which would annoy me also), but he failed to say that he laid hands on Trump too along with 40 other “Christian” leaders. I really don’t think that Dr. Jeremiah and Dr. Jeffress were keeping very good company that day. You can look it up and see who was there in that meeting in the Trump Tower. In my mind, this fellow is just playing politics. He knows exactly what he is after and what he needs to win. It reminds me of the election here in Canada last fall when the Liberals were swept to power. What was wrong with the voters who put him in? Have they lost their marbles completely? Look at what he stands for: abortion, same sex marriage, legalizing marijuana, licensing prostitution, euthanasia, gay rights (Trudeau will be the first Can. PM to participate in the Gay Pride Parade in Toronto this year…what an honor…YUCK!)and on and on. He could destroy our nation in 4 years. Well I should say that God could very well bring us to our knees…or Christ could return in the meantime. I think many Canadians are getting just what they want…freedom to live their own lives without God interfering. If only they knew the consequences of such a foolish choice. It’s more than likely Americans are seeing the same thing happen there. They are on the slippery slope like us and unless we respond to His warnings, we will all suffer the same fate. Choose you this day whom ye will serve. We must get our house in order spiritually. A lukewarm people is neither hot nor cold. They really don’t care. They are not really interested in restoring moral behavior. They just want their benefits and blessings… their paychecks and their mansions and their sports,etc. etc. and they want it now. Make America (and Canada) great, God, but don’t take away our fun and games!

        • Dianne

          Gerry, your post is EXCELLENT, but only those who FEAR the LORD will pay heed. The rest have already cast GOD’S words behind them and they are the children of disobedience. Their PUNISHMENT is pending unless they REPENT!!! Geoffrey the editor is STIFFNECKED and STUBBORN. He will receive the greater punishment for leading others astray. May God remember mercy in HIS WRATH.

          Habakkuk 3:2 O LORD, I have heard thy SPEECH, and was AFRAID: O LORD, revive thy work in the midst of the years, in the midst of the years make known; in WRATH remember MERCY.

          Peace and blessings to you, for at least you have been prudent in my opinion.

          • seems like we are stuck between a rock & a hard place it seems we are doomed no matter who we vote for !!!! i thought trump would be better ..but seems like you are right …or Gerry money is who he worships !!!!trump !!!!! i know hillary is a worse pick but he might be more worse !!!so guess we better pray

    Kenneth Copeland also prophesied over Trump, along with Paula White and others, that he was God’s choice for presidency. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EQ18exdhR6I

      Wow, that means Copeland is hedging his bets and anoints anyone that needs it! At least Ted didn’t let them lay their apostate hands all over him like the Donald did!

    • Yes, but Ted Cruz is a Christian, he should have known better.

      • KY

        Raphael, not Ted set that up. Ted was not even there. As I said before, I’m not even sure Raphael is sane. Raphael is his father. What’s he to do? Disown his father because he promotes his son?

      • lioness

        dear goeffrey there is a strong delusion going on and even christians will fall for that delusion.
        why are we as the body of Christ not praying? do you really know the mind of God? don’t push your candidate down on the throats of your fellow believers. for Donald trump to support plan parenthood and even confirm it yesterday during the debate is enough for me not to support him. I know you will come up with spin but i want us to spend more time praying and asking God for his will to be done.your arguments are the same ones that were put for Obama. this are really dangerous times May the Lord help us all in Jesus name.I will rather put my trust in God and lean on him and not my own understanding than to put my trust in man for the arm of flesh will always fail you.God bless

        • KY

          lioness,

          You put that as eloquently as I have seen, and I believe you to be exactly right!

        • Skywatcher

          lionness, please forgive me if I sound trite, but aren’t you going to be putting your trust in man, on some level, no matter who gets into power? That’s part of the human condition. For you to accuse Geoffrey of shoving any candidate down anybody’s throat is an asinine statement. He did just the opposite. It’s called freedom of speech in America, isn’t it? You might want to use your energies defending that right than by tearing down a brother for using it!

          As for DT saying he supports Planned Parenthood…that may just be a ploy to bring in those voters. He may do a switcheroo after he gets into the Oval Outhouse! He wouldn’t be the first one to do that,now would he? Tread softly on the throats of your brothers in Christ! Choose your words carefully and wisely, as it says in Col. 4: 6!

          • lioness

            dear skywatcher you want me to have faith in DT as you said by saying he supports planned parenthood might be a ploy? To bring in voters shows me your level as a believer.did Obama not say he was for marriage between a man and a woman? but all along he was for same sex marriage? I am still waiting for those ministers of God who were supporting him to apologize to their flocks. i will never have faith in man for the heart of man is desperately wicket who can know the thoughts there of so as for me i will put my faith in CHRIST alone and let his will to be done. And col:4:6 does not mean you compromise your faith and truth so if by pointing out that we need to pray and know the mind of God is not seasoned to you as a child of God that is your problem. My God has thought me to lean on him and i am praying for the will of God to be done.and please respect my freedom to express my speech as well.thanks and God bless.

        • Skywatcher

          First of all, lioness, my sister in Christ, (I think), you can stop lying about me by putting words in my mouth! I did NOT tell you to put your trust in any man! Cool your jets, set your female emotions off to one side, and carefully look at what I wrote!

          You said, “To bring in voters shows me your level as a believer.”

          If you believe that is the ONLY distinguishing characteristic of a believer, whether they are right or wrong, then you’re a mighty sick part of the Body! Pray for healing!

          You cowardly make these snide remarks towards me, but yet, do not click the “notify me of new posts by email”. You’re like an ankle-biting mongrel who rushes in for the ankles, takes a nip and runs before his victim can turn around! You’re not a lioness; you’re an ankle-biting mutt! I’m a German Shepherd!

          Easy girl, don’t let your emotions get in the way of what I’m about to say in my addressing of your comments…

          You said, “did Obama not say he was for marriage between a man and a woman? but all along he was for same sex marriage?”

          You’re too angry to recognize that you’re backing me up with your statements! Did I not say exactly the same thing in my other posts, if not to you, specifically? I said that candidates will say whatever it takes to garner votes! They will profess to be Christians, so they can win Christian votes and then after they get elected, look out! Other wise candidates will NOT show their hand before becoming elected. They may side in up front with our enemies, but after being elected, they could turn around and send them packing! Slow down! Take a deep breath, and stop being so quick to attack with “friendly fire”! You’re showing your inability to read or to reason.

          You said, “And col:4:6 does not mean you compromise your faith and truth so if by pointing out that we need to pray and know the mind of God is not seasoned to you as a child of God that is your problem.”

          My, my! You’re mighty quick to hurl those “fiery darts of the wicked”! Does that come easy for you, or is this something you took a lifetime to perfect? 🙂 Are you a Kenneth Copeland crazy cat?

          You then said, “My God has thought me to lean on him and i am praying for the will of God to be done.and please respect my freedom to express my speech as well.thanks and God bless.”

          Just because I replied to one of your posts doesn’t mean you have to get your panties into a knot! I respect your freedom to express your mind and never said you couldn’t. You’ve obviously taken the liberty to do so here! I expect the same from you! PLEASE! Don’t be giving me this “God bless” dribble when you don’t really mean it! You’re not only illiterate, but you’re a hypocrite.

          Where do you get this stuff from? Are you born again, or a mere church-goer that can quote Scripture? I don’t have a problem with any of God’s Word, nor do I compromise my faith. I’m merely suggesting to the electorate to be very careful; it is NOT all as it appears, or as the candidates would have us to believe! I don’t see anything compromising in that statement, do you? Oops! Wrong question; YOU will! You’re one of those Christians that don’t believe in healing hurting saints; you just outright shoot them! That’s why you call yourself the lioness; you lurk in the tall grass, waiting for some unsuspecting prey to walk by, for you to pounce upon and destroy with false accusations. I believe you know the guy quite well in 1 Peter. 5: 8. He’s quite the lion also! If you were in my congregation, paying millions into the offering plate, I’d not have a problem preaching against such actions as yours! I honor God rather than man or lionesses!

          PLEASE NOTE: I clicked the button so you CAN notify me! I can see where WE are going to have lots of fun together! If you’re wise, you’ll just move along.

          Have a nice day!

            Hello Skywatcher I often read your comments because you have more wisdom than some, you’ve given some great advice too.
            I just want to say there are some weirdos out there in the world that just love to attack fellow Christians and to ignore their stupidity like you have done so. Hard to believe, but a lot of persecution comes from the church these days, a person can’t even open their mouths without someone or other being offended. I live in UK and disturbed by all the political correctness coming into the church and everyone’s afraid not to upset anyone because the powers that be they are very aggressive, for example some old people said something “un-politically – correct” and they had a Caution from the authorities….they went to their house and the old dear had to report to the Police Station….police stations today…goodness knows what tomorrow, we live in an increasingly scary world, my advice these days is similar to yours (on another subject) to keep quiet and to provide Holy Scriptures…wasn’t it about a card with Scripture on? I can’t remember you were giving advice to a young lady I think.
            Don’t know if the rumours are true about concentration camps for Believers. I can’t believe it but what I do know is that Christianity is ridiculed at every turn these days and there is so much hatred for Christians, true believers are called Haters and Monsters, usually people say things like this if you do not agree with them. It is either agree with them, (which I don’t) when they believe in evolution and things that society now accepts which go against the Word of God. I hope you can understand what I am trying to say. I am afraid of the future even though I know Jesus will be with us, humans are weak. I feel sad for the way society has zero respect for the elderly these days, you can tell how the world is going down the toilet by the way it treats it’s most vulnerable members of society. What will the next decade bring? So much is happening in the world it is hard to keep up with what is going on.

    • Jonathan

      This is so sad. How can you use the platform God has given you to endorse a man you admit is not led by God. When the Isrealites begged for a king it broke God’s heart because he knew that man is corrupted by power and they were rejecting Him as their leader. Maybe we can’t trust any politician but to vote for chaos to encourage other Christians to vote for a man you know is not led by God, especially when a Supreme Court opointment will likely be his first act as President. It’s just so discouraging to see…

      • Skywatcher

        Jonathan, there ISN’T a true Christian amongst the works of them! When is it wrong for a person, any person…even Geoffrey to exercise his right to free speech? You’re doing the exact same thing when you talk with your peers and endorse your favored candidate! He’s not a Christian either, in the true sense of the word! If you’re so hell-bent upon electing a representative who is serving God, then you had better stay home on election day because there isn’t any! You folks, like us in Canada, are left with a very poor pot to choose from ! They’re all turnips in this stew, and there are no other veggies to consider! By the way, the meat is gone…trillions of dollars worth of it!

        The candidate who are professing to be Christians, do so, just so they can garner in those Christian votes! Obama did just that, and he’s a Muslim manipulator and country destroyer! People actually worshipped him as though he were God before and after his election. How sick is that?! Buddy, you don’t have a lot to choose from, and the heat under the pot is about to scorch the bottoms of the Christians and others who failed to stand up for their rights and freedoms YEARS ago, that have allowed it to come to this!

        • KY

          Skywatcher, ” If you’re so hell-bent upon electing a representative who is serving God, then you had better stay home on election day because there isn’t any!”

          Christians did not elect Obama, a huge number did not vote. (Where have I heard that before?) The lost elected Obama! This is our last chance, if we have a chance left. Vote for the candidate who is the most Godly, not the one who says he will “Make America Great Again”. That is not going to happen anyway, our time in the sun is done.

          • Skywatcher

            KY, I don’t trust any politician, to be totally honest with you…the cat’s kittens…they all scratch! In the meantime, we speculate and are very hopeful. However, God will have his way in the end, as the curtain for the final act of this part of Life’s play is about to close.

        • Jeanine

          Amen, Skywatcher. Could not have said it better myself. So-called Christians need to stop trying to be the Holy Spirit saying who is and who is not a christian especially when 70% of christian pastors are addicted to pornography, majority of christians believe that planned parenthood should NOT be defunded and 70% of christians have abortions. Jesus said, “there is NONE good, no not one. Jesus raises up whomever he wants as King, and can use whomever he wants because only He knows the heart. Cruz is a bible thumper, but does NOT tithe, and is a liar and a thief. No matter how you look at it, he STOLE Ben Carson Votes. NO OTHER CANDIDATE jumped on that CNN story, but the “Thief in Chief, Ted Cruz. Jesus said, “Out of the heart the mouth speaks.” So, when I hear Trump speak, I know he is speaking from the heart, because he is telling the truth of the condition of this world and he is the ONLY candidate who is speaking about the strenghth of the Christian church in this country who does NOT use the power that it has, our brothers and sisters being beheaded, crucified, sexually assaulted in the Middle East and the plight of Israel. Have NOT heard Bible Thumper Ted Cruz mention it once. This is a Babylonian System and we need a Trump to work within this ungodly system to help lead it into repentance. God always uses someone in the natural. He is choosing Trump, because he THINKS BIG, OUT-OF-THE- BOX, Confident and faithful in what he believes kinda like Paul of Tarsus. ummmm

          • KY

            Jeanine
            “…we need a Trump to work within this ungodly system to help lead it into repentance.”
            So you think the solution is to trust someone who is part of the problem instead of the solution to make it all better. Sounds like some severely flawed logic too me…

  • Debra Girimont

    I have followed your post for a while now and always read what I receive in my emails from you. This is the first time I have ever commented. I am 100% in agreement with you…..even if Mr. Trump is not a born again Christian, maybe, just maybe our God has appointed him to be the leader of our nation. My sister and I have started to include Mr. Trump in our prayers each night. Praying for his victory and his safety. I too am worried that he is in danger. Remember, God used Cyrus and he was a pagan. I firmly believe that we need this man in the White House. Oh, and thanks for the info on Cruz’s endorsement by Copeland. That should tell everyone all they need to know. My spirit told me Cruz was speaking out of both sides of his mouth.

    • Marie

      Well said ! Geoffrey is right,too.

  • ROSSANO WAGNER

    “And as he sat upon the mount of Olives, the disciples came unto him privately, saying, Tell us, when shall these things be? and what shall be the sign of thy coming, and of the end of the world?

    And Jesus answered and said unto them, Take heed that no man deceive you.’

    Matthew 24:3-4

  • Bobbi

    Wow, your political reasoning is very twisted. There has NEVER been a time in history when we need a person in the white house with a moral compass. Donald Trump is not that person! He is a deal maker, which Washington does not need. We need someone who knows and respects the Constitution and the rule of law. You have a faithful following and you are abusing your leadership role. .. for whom much is given. …
    I could go on for days why DT is s bad choice, especially for a professed Christian! One good reason; the Supreme Court replacement (now very relevant).. he thinks his flaming pro abortion sister would be great for SCOTUS! If we gain just one more liberal on SCOTUS, we will lose any future for the rule of law!
    Stick to religion, you have no idea what you are doing when it comes to politics!

  • Rita FREEMAN

    Ted Cruz absolutely doesn’t go along and if you weren’t so against the Copland type, then you would see that he stands alone most of the time. That’s why neither party likes him. He knows the constitution like no other candidate ESP trump. I doubt trump knows anythg about the constitution. Please look at trumps past as little as last year. Look at his views on abortions as little as last year, look at who he has supported. I don’t think God will look kindly if we Christians vote in another ungodly man. Please pray and stop following trump blindly. Like he says, he could kill someone on 5street and still his supporters would vote for him, well not this Christian. He’s a complete phony and I’m probably done with this suppose ably Christian site for your views. I don’t trust you any longer. Rita

  • Thomas

    Proverbs 16:18 Pride goes before destruction,
    a haughty spirit before a fall. NIV

    The way I see it Trump is the most haughty and prideful men I’ve ever seen in my 47 yrs on this planet. So if you really think this is the end times, then there’s a great reason to vote for him, so we can end it all. Heck I’ll vote for him just to expedite us to the end. But if you think for one minute this guy is going to save us from Muslims or any other cataclysmic event than you’re not believing in “now the end begins” philosophy. If however you believe in pride goeth before a fall and you’re ready for this to be over then that’s a great reason to endorse Mr Prideful himself

    • Thomas,

        Which version of the KJV is the true Word of God though?

        The 1611 version replete with Apocrypha and spelling as bad as an H.P. Lovecraft eldritch horror novel?

        The cleaned up 1769 version?

        The first revision of the 1769 version?

        The second revision?

        The third?

        For that matter, Christ and the Disciples didn’t have the original autographs of Moses. Just copies. Yet they trusted those copies… copies that certainly weren’t the KJV translation.

        I say none of this to malign you or the KJV. Even I don’t like the NIV. But the NASB or the NKJV aren’t conspiratorial translations. There are good men of God behind modern translations. Not ALL modern translations are good, but I believe God can reach people through some translations other than the KJV.

        • ThOmas

          Thank YOU!!! those who believe that the kjv is Gods aw inspired Word will be extremely surprised if they actually make it to heaven

      • Thomas

        So pray tell me what different does the kjv that’s been translated over 400 times, say any different for proverbs 16:18

      • Amen Kristi Ann!!

        As for the KJV update,,,nice overstatement. The Apocrypha was NEVEr in the KJV as scripture. It was put in the 1611 as history, with all of the books together, not in the order it is in in the catholic Bibles. There was also a 13 point caveat explaining why they weren’t considered canon. S0…that slander is destroyed. As for the minor revisions( the changes are available online), the first was to change the script from gothic to Roman, while the next three were largely spelling and language updates.
        The new Bible versions have HUNDREDS of horrible doctrinal changes from the 95% Greek manuscripts and use the Masoretic Hebrew, just as the disciples did. So the KJV and the scriptures quoted by Jesus and the apostles agree.

        I’m sorry guest…but men who loved seances and hated sound biblical doctrine made every single new version in existence today by making up a greek translation from two vatican-centric greek texts that were ignored for 1,300 years because they, well, sucked! Your pro new version propaganda doesn’t stand because 95% and history destroy it:

        • Skywatcher

          Well said, sola Scriptura! The newer per-versions of the Holy Bible are founded upon the ancient Alexandrian texts that the early Church Fathers pronounced as heresy! Keep up the good work!

    • Please use KJV only when posting scripture on this site. NIV is not scripture, thanks!

      • Thomas

        So pray tell me what different does the kjv that’s been translated over 400 times, say any different for proverbs 16:18

        • You know not what you speak of Thomas. The KJV agrees with 95% of all ancient Greek manuscripts. Even the KJV hating scholars accept that figure. Then, when you see who put together the new Greek, which underpins every single new version, you realize that satan was at work trying to destroy the Bible from the inside. Take a sec and read this short article. Charts showing the edits tell the tale:

          • Skywatcher

            sola Scriptura, I went to your site and read the MOST EXCELLENT item re: the KJV, “The Bible Version Controversy”. Did you write that? If so, you did an awesomely excellent job! It falls right in line with the manuscript I wrote on the topic a couple of years ago! Yours is much shorter because I showed a great many of the omissions, additions, and doctrinal changes in mine; 32 typed pages worth! Keep up the great work, sola!

  • Donald Trump needs Jesus ( Yeshua ) Christ in his HEART and SOUL NOW TODAY!!

    • Grace

      Not so sure Donald Trump is illuminati, they most certainly want an establishment person in whom they can puppeteer like Bush, Rubio, Cruz and Cruz has been shown blatantly giving the masonic hand signals, not to mention that guy creeps me out. I don’t like Trumps foul mouth but then again I am surrounded by ppl who speak like he does and yes it makes me cringe but Trump at least is honest about the things he says, he doesn’t hold back. If there were an election today I’d vote Trump. It would be great to have a true born again Christian as president but just because Cruz or Rubio claim to be that doesn’t mean anything. The Lord showed me awhile back when I asked Him how you can tell who is truly born again by their claiming to be and this was the answer I got, it’s not just a matter of speaking out that you are born again but the Lord showed me there will be fruit that follows those statements of faith in Christ. You will have the fruit of the HOly Spirit and lying is not the fruit of the Holy Spirit and Cruz just recently was caught in a lie and Rubio and his gang of eight were not honest either and Rubio is still defending that one in the debates. I’d rather vote for a honest person who is not backed by special interest groups and is using his own money even if he is foul mouthed, Trump has never blasphemed the Lord’s name and the foul words he uses are just that word spoken from a passionate soul. I pray God opens Trumps eyes and heart to the gospel message, he reminds me of some baby Christians with much to learn but I have found it is easier for the Lord to teach one who knows very little about the bible and lead them to Him than to teach those who think they are so mature and know everything.

      • Skywatcher

        Grace, that is an excellent observation and comment! There is so much truth in what you said. From what I see, there aren’t any real Christians to choose from, and DT may be exactly whom God is raising up for such a time as this. God can take a pig’s ear and make a silk purse out of it. Man can take the most stalwart Christian there is and make a downright fool out of him, chew him up and spit him out in no time! DT can hold his own, and like you said, he doesn’t need anybody’s money either! Who knows…God could put a real genuine Christian in his life who could influence him or better yet, lead him to saving faith in Christ!

        I wouldn’t want either one of the Graham goblins to do it though; they’ve defected to the dark side! They’re nothing more now than slick salesman, pushing snake oil. What a mighty fall! So sad.

        Thanks, for your input, Grace! What a lovely name! That was my mom’s name too.

    • Teshuvah, I checked out the chart. I am still educating myself on the top candidates. A good check on our freedoms. TY

  • Lindsey

    You are wrong and I’m voting for Ted Cruz

    • Lori

      I’m with you, Lindsey. I, too, am voting for Ted Cruz. He is pro- life, pro-Israel, pro-constitution, a born again Christian, a defender of biblical marriage between one man and one woman. Is he perfect? No, but America is in serious trouble. We need a man to lead this nation who is not ashamed of the name of Jesus Christ. Ted Cruz also has my vote because of his experience and because of his faith.

      • cozette

        Teds a lawyer NOT a leader. The despicable, unholy people he hired to run his campaign, especially Jeff Roe, tells me Ted is a Christian because it gets him votes. His church requires a 10% tithe but his contribution to his church and charity combined were less than 1%.And the face he shows to the world, claiming that it’s the face of God, is repugnant.

        • KY

          Prove it.

      • Grace

        Ted Cruz is a mason, I will not vote for a mason, research the hand signals and you’ll see Cruz giving those, I saw him hold up his hands in one of the mason signals after a debate and I say the other one where one hand is placed part way in his jacket. check it out for yourself.

  • Jack Lovett

    So correct on all counts.

  • Art Ald

    I am originally from New Jersey Just outside NYC. I have seen the Wonderful Work and Influence Donald Trump has had on the New York Metro area. He restored a broken down central park, he restored the long time landmark which came into great disrepair ice skating rink in the park. He purchased the other landmark of tavern on the green restaurant And made it into a world class restaurant. He refurbished the entire park back to a place where the Good people of the entire New York Area.

    He was one of the Leaders in rebuilding Atlantic City New Jersey. I worked for a Bank in Atlantic City and saw first Hand the improvements and revitalization of the city. When I worked there was on of the worst Slums an impoverished areas of the State. Donald Trump created thousands of jobs for the people of Atlantic City and South Jersey.

    When Donald Trump Says He will do something he gets it done and more Nothing is Second Class He is First Class All The Way

    • I am from NJ as well, and totally agree with what you say here. Calvin Coolidge said that “the business of America is BUSINESS”, and it is about time we had a businessman in the Oval Office.

      Donald Trump is that man.

      • Dan

        Geoff , what do you make of Trump’s statement ” I don’t think I’ve ever asked GOD for forgiveness” ? I myself like

        Trump but what a red flag that statement is coming from Trump. Between the 2 of us I know you’re way more stringent

        when it comes to the way Christians should act and the fact the Graham endorses Trump without addressing this is even

        more troubling. Am I the only one feeling like a lamb being led to slaughter ; when it comes to Trump here? Didn’t

        our country just elect someone who said everything we wanted to hear but did nothing he said he would do?

        Is that statement by Trump; actually a peek behind the curtain that we all should consider, and is what’s behind that

        curtain really someone without self serving ulterior motives?

        Well it looks like we’re about to find out.

        • My article opens up with that statement and I discussed it at length 🙂

          • Dan

            Geoff, let me say I’m dumbstruck! And worse this is one of the articles I only read the headlines (laugh) guilty as charged.

            Great article ; Thanks!

    • Grace

      I agree, he also has helped many poor ppl, it doesn’t get mainstream news and most likely Trump could care less for that wasn’t his motive in helping. He has a giving spirit to those who have not, that is a fruit.

  • JIM Eckland

    I was thinking along those same lines but still undecided. TED is not a constitutionalist for if he was he would know he wasn’t eligible for office since both of his parents were not citizens at the time of his birth.

    • Sarah Tennessee

      You are correct. Neither Ted Cruz nor Marco Rubio are eligible by definition of our Constitution.

    • Jim, Ted Cruz mother is a citizen of the USA by birth of both her parents. Cruz father not a citizen till 2005. Just a quick fact check as Breitbart news has the mother’s birth certificate on their website.

      • Jim Eckland

        Teresa, Since Ted Cruz was born before 2005 and his father was not a citizen at the time of Ted’s Birth, then Ted is not a Natural-Born-Citizen.

        • Jim, I posted this because some do not know about Ted Cruz parents. Obviously you do. I know that his father was not a US citizen when was Ted born but his mother was born here. Ted was born in Canada but his mother was a US citizen. If Obama was eligible then Cruz is. Obama’s mother was a US citizen. I am not agreeing with either man just stating what Breitbart news put on their website of Ted Cruz mother’s birth certificate.
          God help this nation.

          • cozette

            Obama was forced by Trump, who was fighting to protect the constitution, to come up with a fake birth certificate to show he was born in America. Cruz isnt even bothering to do that. Plus, Cruz has sealed all his records and refuses to open them to the public. I suspect Cruz’s mom had renounced her US citizenship since she was on the Canadian voting rolls. But he was a Canadian citizen until 2014. How can you claim to love the constitution then back Ted? Trump is the one who has fought for an originalist interpretation on eligibility and been mocked for it for years now. I judge a man for his actions and the tough stands he takes. Ted is a fail. I pray for him and especially his poor little girls.

          • Grace

            didn’t Obama’s mother give up her American citizenship? Does anyone know this to be a fact?

      • cozette

        Actually, like Obama, Ted has sealed his records and refuses to open them to the public. He is not open and honest. Trump is.

    • Lindsey

      You are so wrong

    • KY

      “On the Meaning of “Natural Born Citizen”
      The Naturalization Act of 1790

      provided that “the children of citizens of the United States, that may be born beyond sea, or out of the limits of the United States, shall be considered as natural born citizens: Provided, That the right of citizenship shall not descend to persons whose fathers have never been resident in the United States . . . .”
      Ch. 3, 1 Stat. 103 (repealed 1795).”
      http://harvardlawreview.org/20

      DID YOU GET THAT? REPEALED!

      Cruz actually is a Constitutional scholar. I am not a Constitutional scholar but it appears that this portion was repealed and that is what politicians are now relying on to determine eligibility. Cruz is a REAL Constitutional Attorney, having argued before the Supreme court for the state of Texas and won, several times, I don’t think he would waste the effort unless he was sure of his eligibility.There is more to the argument than is presented here but I have a feeling the die has been cast. If Obama was eligible, so is Cruz!

      • Lindsey

        Sso agree with ky…Give it up a court of law already states Cruz is a citizen and the most constitutional conservative we’ve seen in a long time! He’s got my vote!

      • ThOmas

        Why not Cruz ? Who knows who they’ll let in next? They can come up with some constitutional amendment to get whoever they want in office. Maybe we will get a gay Muslim next time instead of a Canadian mason!

        • KY

          ThOmas,
          We have a gay Muslim now!

      • Ann

        The difference was Obama was born actually in the USA, not an outside country such as Canada. Both mothers were USA citizens though. Although there is some question regarding that Cruz mother gave up her USA citizenship to receive benefits for healthcare and such. Both of their fathers were not citizens. If Raphael Cruz had been born on a USA base or territory there would not be a fuss.

        • KY

          Ann, You may believe Obama was born in this country, I do not. There is too much evidence otherwise including a forged PDF birth certificate that was released online to the general public. This is according to forensic document examiners that say it is made of layers much like you would cut and paste electronically from one document to another. This document also contains many irregularities including font mismatches and changes that are not consistent for the year of issue. He has used multiple SS#’s including the one he uses now that belonged to a man long dead. SS never reuses a number. There is evidence that he was receiving a scholarship as a foreign exchange student while attending college in the US. He has sealed all of his records. I suspect that their is evidence far more sinister than any of this that he cannot afford to get out.

  • Pat from Canada

    Not only has Kenneth Copeland prophesied over Ted Cruz, he has prophesied over Donald Trump along with Paula White, a Rabbi and other in the room who say that he is God’s choice because of his connection with Israel????????

    • Ken Copeland wants to cover all his bases. He is about power, money and connections.

      • Ben from Canada

        Correct Watching

        Yes That’s why he is consistently looking for new “partners” to fund his 501.c3 operation

        Just look at their Partner sign-up packages- Copeland, Creflo Dollar, Bill Winston, Keith Moore, Kenneth E. Hagin as you sow your monthly gift amount

        Here is Creflo’s vision partner info package states- Together we can change the world!!
        A Partner is- One who shares responsibility in a common activity with another individual or group.

        Our part is to …
        Pray daily that God’s blessing be on you.
        Study the word and diligently seek Gods on your behalf Note: he use’s Message Bible, Amp, and so on.
        Minister to you monthly in a personal letter from Dr. Creflo Dollar
        Provide you with an official Partner kit.
        Periodically offer special gifts for your spiritual edification and growth.

        Your part is to …
        Pray for us always.
        Attend and Support conventions in your area.- $$$$$$ love Offerings!! sow your seed 100 fold Bessing back!!
        Support us financially with your monthly pledge (Philippians 4:17).- Note: Creflo thinks he is preaching the same Gospel as Paul and that he has the same Integrity as Paul.
        Lift up the ministry, Dr. Dollar and his family daily with positive confession!!- name and claim it

        Rhema, Jerry Savelle, Moore Life Ministries, Copelands, Mark T. Barclay, Bill Winston all send out the same promotion’s plus ton’s of others do this also!!!

        classic Word of Faith, Seeker-friendly, Motivational speaker, Emergent, Purpose Driven church message all mixed together for a PARADIGM SHIFT

        Copeland was taught this from Oral Robert’s always looking for partners, Roberts always needed bail-out money to keep ORU doors open!!! Oral Roberts had videos of himself asking the government of the United State for money, The state government of Oklahoma, and asking his partners for money!!!

        Copeland in the year 2008 when the money crunch hit and lot’s of his partners lost their job’s and houses and could not give!!
        Then Copeland got rid of 25 long time KCM employees and hired new employees at a low starting wages to save money on labor so much for “the Blessing”

        Tom Killingsworth a former Pastor at KCM did quit then spilled the beans on them, Remember Copeland has about 5 lawyer’s on staff!!! Copeland and or KCM has in the past tried to sue past employee’s on gag orders BUT Copeland lossed in court!!!More legal costs that the partners paid for!!

        AS Well as several other past employees of KCM have come foreword and stated about CEO John Copeland and pastors George & Terri Pearson’s and their corrupt “CHURCH” business dealings.

        That is also why lots of 501.c3 churches put in schools, non profit child daycare’s so they get money from the government or you to operate them and lot’s of other non profit tax benefits and deductions. Corporation churches

        Gloria gets a new vehicle every 2 years from her employer KCM

        The house is a parsonage!!! Doug Wead stated on Monday Aug 4, 2008 while on BVOV with Kenneth Copeland yet Gloria said she sowed seed for that house, when it belongs to her ministry/ or business she owns anyways!!! always a money motive.

      • Ian Francis

        So true, Pat. He is an unrepentant heretic. Cruz apparently does not have sharp discernment if it is true, he is a regenerated Christian. He should avoided close associations with cultic Christians in the Word of Faith movement, that includes Cindy Jacobs.

    • Grace

      None of the so called ministers abided by Paul’s commandment to Timothy in 1 Timothy 5:22 Lay hands suddenly on no man, neither be partaker of other men’s sins: keep thyself pure.

        I think it goes both ways too on not letting just anyone lay hands on you too, once I let someone lay hands on me w/out really knowing them, I’ll never let that happen again. God knows my heart.

        • KY

          Ted Cruz was not present for the unsolicited “anointment”, just his father. Trump on the other hand has finger prints all over him.

      • Skywatcher

        Grace, they didn’t lay hands on him suddenly! This was slowly and methodically thought of ahead of time, planned, and organized. This was no hurried act! The Scripture you’re using is being taken out of context; it won’t work in this situation. 🙂

    • Grace

      Amen! I hope the Senate denies Obama’s next appointment for we know whomever he picks will be bad for Christians and will promote more sin and turning away from Almighty God but also the time is short so God’s will be done, I am ready to go home ASAP but not my will but God’s will be done.

  • I just want to say that in this world, God “could raise Donald Trump up” if He so pleases. That would be great from my perspective, I think it would take someone outside “the political establishment” who is a builder, not a destroyer, or a “status quo guy”, who is indebted to others… In my opinion

    Also spiritually speaking, Jesus said that “all” that the Father gave to Him, would come. (Period end of storey)
    Evangelism is great, yet it does not surpass the Father’s will; men acting independently of God’s leading have a problem with this doctrine, but it is the unadulterated truth, that God graces whom “he pleases” and curses whom “he pleases” as well.

    We should do right to all men, but ultimately it is NOT our choice, rather we are to be followers of Christ alone. It is all well and good to be God-honoring in our lives, yet we should remember that the “Kingdom of God” is not built on an earthly level. Enough of my preaching to the quire, let us be about our Father’s business first and foremost.

    God used Pharaoh and he wasn’t a Christian. God used Nebuchadnezzar and he wasn’t a christian. God even used Herod and he wasn’t a Christian.All through the scriptures God used non-Christians for His purposes.

      Ok, all those examples are bad leaders who killed a lot of Israelites

    • Ben

      If Mr. Trump is not a Christian, who does he have as his God? Everyone believes in something. Atheists believe in nature, material things, etc. I don’t know Mr. Trump but he appears to be focused on riches. One can’t serve both God and money. Have we fallen so far that we hear only the rhetoric, and we don’t see their values? Why should a Christian vote for someone who’s self-serving?
      Granted that we are not electing a pastor. But it’s on our conscience to vote someone who is not only not a Christian, but is spiritually bankrupt.
      Vote for him based on a patriotic sentiment that he will protect America’s shores, but let’s not blind ourselves to the truth.

      • Grace

        If you haven’t noticed most of these running aren’t serving God but I believe Trump is closer to receiving God than those who claim to know God in order to get the evangelical vote but the fruit they display givens them away and they do not honor God.

    • Wendy

      Are you saying you would have voted in the Pharaoh or Nebuchanezzer. I will admit these are probably good examples of what a trump presidency would look like.

      • Pharaoh? No. Nebuchadnezzar? Maybe I would have. Looks like he got with the program at the end, right? God’s hand was certainly on him to bless him, right? God allowed him time and space to get right, yes?

        • KY

          You already know the Biblical history of these two rulers. I think you would have voted NO on both of these guys had you been there in person but without the benefit of knowing future history. To extrapolate that a bit further, IF we could see the future, we would know if “The Donald” was going to sell us out, which he probably would and then you would have wished you had voted for Cruz just like many people who are getting ready to make the same mistake you are. That is when that “buyers remorse” you mentioned will kick in. 🙂

          • Skywatcher

            KY, it seems to me that wheel can spin both ways! What if you vote in a dud? Then you’ll be wishing you had voted for DT, so you could see how hard he swings… 🙂

  • Grider. I did read DT books. You confuse me to the tip that I don’y know which side of the Bible you are. Are you a disguised far side progresive.

  • II Chronicles 7:14 always comes to mind here…who is to say that God is going to continue to give us what we asked for in Trump as we got in Obama…..judgement on a Godless nation…..we have NOT repented of our sins and our arrogance and pride continues in DT…he has stated that he has never asked for God’s forgiveness of his sins, that speaks volumes as to what kind of person he is….voting the Bible should never be compromise….if it comes down to Trump and Hillary, I will not be voting in this election…just saying..

  • carrierwave

    “Donald” may just be indeed, the last “TRUMP”. He is saying everything christian conservatives, and true conservatives want to hear. He makes it a point to mention the “many christians being beheaded” by ISIS and wants to get rid of them (even though U.S. dollars train and support them is common knowledge) has promised to take “common core” out of the schools, where Ted Cruz stabbed Homeschoolers in the back with his legislation and re-aligned them under “private schools” forcing “common core” for all schools. Ted Cruz says he wants to remove “common core” but he is most responsible for “common core” being forced on ALL christian schools and Homeschoolers. Trump wants to build a “Wall” at the borders, and keep illegals out. He is saying what every real conservative wants to hear, except his stand on the Constitution.

    Personally, I believe we are setting ourselves up for a big let down. Until ‘christian’ get right with God, beginning with 501c3 IRS pastors who have sold out Jesus Christ as head of the Church, and signed a contract with an “unequal yoke with unbelievers” and brought “queerdom” into the church for filthy $$$ lucre sake, and christians cancel their HBO channels, get rid of their worldly music, and tithing lies, maybe Trump will get saved. God is judging the CHURCH! Supporting TRUMP will not meet the criteria for church repentance, Goeffrey. This website has been pushing “another Gospel” and a different FAITH, while pushing WORKS salvation for “tribulation saints” when clear scriptures prove saints in the tribulation are saved BY THE BLOOD OF JESUS CHRIST, and NOTHING ELSE! REPENT GEOFFREY..

  • joel seda

    I did read DT books. Did you? What side of the Bible are you in? In this article you sound like a far side progressive. Better do not appoint anybody guessing about appearance or family name. He will lead the nation astray as well as the other wanna-be-presidents.

    • Jen

      We are already led astray. This country has been done for, for a long time

  • RMann

    I don’t see any prospects in this current batch of candidates for President of the US. That is why I think that Obama will find a way to stay in office, or at least, appoint some one to take his place. I do not see any hope for this country right now. Obama has done exactly what he was placed in office to do. Destroy the US, and help set the world up for World War 3. If you are keeping up with the Middle East, Russia has told the US to stay out. And, we are doing just that. The US has run it’s race, and completed what it was created to do.

  • Skywatcher

    What difference does it make where ANY of the presidential candidates were born? Ovomit wasn’t born anywhere, apparently, least of all in the USA, and he was voted in as president!

    Now, we have a seriously major national incident: Hillary Clinton was also “anointed” as president by many black clergy! Maybe, we’re going to have two idiots share the throne in the Oval Outhouse!

    I can tell you exactly what’s going to happen! Mark my words: There isn’t going to be an election! There will be a major catastrophe of one kind or another (Rapture?), that will cause such major chaos, that Ovomit will “feel the need” to declare martial law and to postpone the elections! This will guarantee him extra time to “tie up loose ends”, and during this time, Trump may be taken out. The Muslimes are not going to let him become the Pres! That flies directly into the face of their global conquest agenda!

    Even if Trump were to survive an assassination attempt, and to build the wall, all he is doing is enclosing the domestic Muslim terrorists and the Muslim immigrant scourge that’s already inside the country! The world is poised for WW3 and there is no stopping it!

    • Jen

      I agree with you that we are not gonna see another election.. like you I beleive something major will happen to keep Obama in and become a dictator

    • Robert Harder

      I agree with you Skywatcher. When I think of everything the Rapture would create, that in its;f would cause chaos, destruction and loss of life around the world. Planes crashing, cars without a driver, Trains all of a sudden unmanned. Crane operators no longer at the switch and their loads plummeting to the ground. We Christians would be gone in the thinking of the eye but how many would perish as a result of our sudden disappearance?

      • Skywatcher

        Robert, as to how many would perish is no concern for us, who are gathered with our Savior, the saints of all the ages, our loved ones, and the mighty hosts of Heaven! Those left behind have a chance to be a part of this with every breath and heartbeat they have, just as we did.

    • KY

      “KY, it seems to me that wheel can spin both ways! What if you vote in a dud?”

      Skywatcher, You are correct it could go either way. My point is ALL of this is just supposition so there is as good a chance that The Donald is a mistake as there is that Cruz is. Given what I know about the two men, where The Donald absolutely represents the worst kind of prideful unbeliever and Ted Cruz represents a professing Christian with many actions to demonstrate he is, I have to go with Cruz. The internet is full of derogatory stories about both men. I’ve been told Cruz is Illuminati and a Mason and I find that Trump is probably a Jesuit and maybe a Democrat in disguise. Neither one would be good but there have been several Masons that founded this country and frankly they did a good job at the time combined with the other founders. Geoffrey said that with Trump all his warts were visible but Cruz was not what he says he is. I’m suggesting that Trump is not playing it straight, may be a plant by the Jesuits and or a Democrat spoiler, and on top of that it appears he is as lost (spiritually) as a ball in tall weeds. I like the odds much better with Cruz. No one can see the future but God. God gave us a brain and we should use it based on scripture, not some far out conspiracy story cooked up by men.

      • Skywatcher

        KY, I hear ya. Only hindsight will prove whether the pudding was any good or not.

        You said, “Masons that founded this country and frankly they did a good job at the time combined with the other founders.”

        When they founded the USA, they had in their mind what is unfolding today! They were supporters of the A/C rule. From my side of the border, you folks don’t have any prize candidates, but anything is better than what you have now…or at least, I pray so! 🙂

        You said, “No one can see the future but God. God gave us a brain and we should use it based on scripture”. having said that, can you give your people some SCRIPTURAL insight then, as to which candidate they should vote for? I don’t see a single one of them that are meeting God’s standards, do you?

        • KY

          Skywatcher, Concerning “SCRIPTURAL insight then, as to which candidate they should vote for? I don’t see a single one of them that are meeting God’s standards, do you?”

          I’m a realist and I understand there is only 1 perfect candidate and he has not returned to earth yet 🙂 I look at the candidates we have and the way the primaries are going and who is dropping out. The field is thinning very fast now and I’m reasonably sure it will come down to Trump and Cruze. If this is the final two, than I have to go with Cruz because he is the more Godly. Off hand, I can think of no scripture that gives us the criteria for selecting a national leader unless it would be in 1st Samuel.

          1Sa 8:6 But the thing displeased Samuel, when they said, Give us a king to judge us. And Samuel prayed unto the LORD.
          1Sa 8:7 And the LORD said unto Samuel, Hearken unto the voice of the people in all that they say unto thee: for they have not rejected thee, but they have rejected me, that I should not reign over them.

          I see this as an indication from God that the people rejected God, or in our case a Godly man if we elect Trump, regardless of what the conspiracy stories may be. It really comes down to our choice, If we insist on “The Donald”, God will let us have him as well as all the woes attached. Having said that, even though we are not electing a Bishop or a deacon, I think Timothy gives us several things to look for in a leader or a servant, none of which I think Trump has. In fact I see Trump as the poster boy for who we should not elect.

          1Ti 3:1 This is a true saying, If a man desire the office of a bishop, he desireth a good work.
          1Ti 3:2 A bishop then must be blameless, the husband of one wife, vigilant, sober, of good behaviour, given to hospitality, apt to teach;
          1Ti 3:3 Not given to wine, no striker, not greedy of filthy lucre; but patient, not a brawler, not covetous;
          1Ti 3:4 One that ruleth well his own house, having his children in subjection with all gravity;
          1Ti 3:5 (For if a man know not how to rule his own house, how shall he take care of the church of God?)
          1Ti 3:6 Not a novice, lest being lifted up with pride he fall into the condemnation of the devil.
          1Ti 3:7 Moreover he must have a good report of them which are without; lest he fall into reproach and the snare of the devil.
          1Ti 3:8 Likewise must the deacons be grave, not doubletongued, not given to much wine, not greedy of filthy lucre;
          1Ti 3:9 Holding the mystery of the faith in a pure conscience.
          1Ti 3:10 And let these also first be proved; then let them use the office of a deacon, being found blameless.
          1Ti 3:11 Even so must their wives be grave, not slanderers, sober, faithful in all things.
          1Ti 3:12 Let the deacons be the husbands of one wife, ruling their children and their own houses well.

          Does Ted Cruz possess all of these qualities? Probably not, but he runs circles around Donald Trump. For me it is a no brainer but I understand why people are excited about a Trump presidency. I just think it would be a huge mistake.

          • Skywatcher

            KY, you’re heart is definitely in the right place but the passages you’ve used from Timothy are NOT applicable to an election of state officials! These passages are talking of leaders within the church. None of your candidates are squeaky-clean, and therefore, to use Biblical criteria as you’ve attempted to do, would knock them all out of the race.

            I believe your country and mine are so astronomically corrupt, that it matters not who gets in the high chair. They’re all the same cat’s kittens, sporting different colors. Once they get into power, they ALL scratch and bite us! I made that saying up many years ago; feel free to use it! 🙂

            You said, “…if we elect Trump, regardless of what the conspiracy stories may be.”

            Remember, KY, there is a HUGE difference between a conspiracy (reality) and a conspiracy theory (not factual). You’re right! There ARE many conspiracies out there and they are in play, and they’re as much in the Church as they are in government! We definitely need God’s providential wisdom and guidance in these days that we are in.

        • KY

          Skywatcher, You asked me for scripture and this is what I said: ….THOUGH WE ARE NOT ELECTING A BISHOP OR A DEACON, I THINK TIMOTHY GIVES US SEVERAL THINGS TO LOOK FOR IN A LEADER OR A SERVANT, NONE OF WHICH I THINK TRUMP HAS. I know this was meant for the church and not a national leader, but it is a good standard if all your choices are less than perfect.

          I said nothing about (conspiracy (reality) and a conspiracy theory (not factual)), I said conspiracy stories. Whether the stories are true or not is irrelevant to me at this point because we have no other choices. I am looking for a candidate that is the MOST Godly of the CHOICES we have, and that is not Donald Trump. I refuse to be a holier than thou Christian who refuses to vote because I find fault with all the candidates, and I will not vote for a candidate because he will, to quote Geofferey, “DONALD TRUMP WILL GIVE THE ELITES AND THE ESTABLISHMENT ABSOLUTE FITS FROM HIS FIRST DAY IN OFFICE, AND I FIND THAT PROSPECT VERY SATISFYING.” Geoffrey’s motive is wrong in electing a leader. Interestingly enough, he also said, “if it were not for Donald Trump he would not be voting”. Geoffrey sat out the election in 2014 by his own admission. Christians that did that (There were many!) gave us a second term of BO. Now he supports the most vile UN-Christ like candidate running that “supposedly” is a Republican that has seen the light. He has not seen any light. To hear him tell it, he does not think he needs to ask for forgiveness. If he is that convinced that he is above sin, why would anyone put him past lying to further the agenda of the left who’s views he has supported his entire life?

          I also said, Does Ted Cruz possess all of these qualities? Probably not, but he runs circles around Donald Trump. That is my rationale for casting a vote for Cruz over Trump. I also quoted 1Sa 8:6-7, which demonstrates God will let us vote for anyone we want, (FREE WILL) and will also let us reap the consequences for that vote. He is allowing us our deserved payback if we insist on ignoring what he says in his word. No one person has a lock on being the right candidate, but choosing the lesser of two evils is a reasonable way to stem the tide of darkness when that is the only choice you have. Both Cruz and Trump have good worldly qualifications to lead a nation, but only one says I’m one of you, I am a believer. To summarize: When a candidate has a lifetime record of evil and says he does not need forgiveness, vote for the other candidate that says he is a professing believer and has actions to show it. That’s my take and I’m sticking to it!

          • Skywatcher

            KY, I see no reason for you to be so hostile. Take a deep breath or a long walk. We’re both pretty much on the same path, methinks. All I’m saying is many who profess to be “Christians” have no idea what a biblical Christian really is; many are wolves in sheep’s clothing, that Christ warned us about! They say it merely to garner votes or to better their own personal lot in life.

            Your country and mine, are well into the post-Christian era; there will never again be a sincere genuine Bible-believing/practicing Christian at the helm of our countries again. They had their chance and compromising blew it. As a Canadian, my beef has ALWAYS been that we put people into positions of power who have never worked a day in those industries their departments lord over. I don’t mean to offend anybody here, but it would make much more sense to have a retired fisherman as the Minister of Fisheries or a farmer as the Minister of Agriculture. No, we have to go the most asinine direction possible.

            Out here, on the street level, I’d prefer to have a dentist look after my teeth, and not a long hauler! Having said that, I would rather have a SUCCESSFUL business man who has made money and continues to prosper as my president, instead of someone who professes to be a Christian, with no fruit following! The business man knows how to make a dollar AND he knows how to keep it at home! He knows how to wheel and deal or in gov’t. terms, how to be a diplomat with common sense, sound reason and logic. That carries a lot of weight. THE WHOLE world is washed up and groaning for its redemption. Election is really a small part of the bigger picture. All it does is keep the masses distracted from the REALLY HUGE and important things that are going on behind the scenes. Election gives us all the false sense that we really have a say in our governance, but we REALLY don’t! When was the last time you had a chance to sit in and voice your opinion on policy that greatly affected you or your loved ones? Hmmm…the same here in Kanada! They make the laws and we’re expected to be in favor of them and follow them, no matter what. That will work for only so long…

            Peace to you!

        • KY

          Skywatcher, I’m sorry you interpreted my post as hostile. I assure you there was no hostility intended I was just restating my reasoning. The use of caps was to emphasize certain things I said for clarification. It is difficult to convey emotions and attitude in text. Next time I will have to use one or more of these things. 🙂 I count you as a Christian with good intentions even if we disagree on this issue. I KNOW we agree on many others. I know there are false Christians. Some are using Christianity to achieve evil or selfish goals. Satan is roving around as a roaring lion seeking who he may devour. God has not indicated to me that Ted Cruz disingenuous, but he has in regards to Donald Trump. Not being able to read a mans heart makes it impossible to know his true intentions and many times people are misunderstood when they are innocent. 🙂 My feeling is that I can’t go wrong voting for a man that I feel is a genuine professing Christian though he be flawed. On the other hand if I vote for someone who has demonstrated he does not think Biblical issues are are important, I will have voted for a known evil. I feel a US Senator is every bit as prepared to lead a nation as a businessman, probably more so because he understands how a government functions. If you add in he is a Constitutional attorney who has argued before SCOTUS and won, you have a formidable leader. I’m not convinced God needs a successful businessman to turn this country around. I think God would prefer a righteous Christian, even with flaws. If we are fooled so be it, but our conscience will be clean that we did not push aside God’s word and use our own criteria to select a leader.
          Qite possibly none of this will matter for Christian because we may not be here to see the results of the election, if there is one. Peace to you also!

          • Skywatcher

            KY, my dear brother/sister in Christ, your apology is accepted! You have been the same kind of victim as I have been in the past. One’s emotions are not heard in the written word! I agree wholeheartedly with you closing statment,

            “Quite possibly none of this will matter for Christian because we may not be here to see the results of the election, if there is one. Peace to you also!”

            Wouldn’t that just be something! I sooooo look forward to that!

            Your brother in Christ,

  • Char

    All I wanna know is, why did you even have to tell us who you are voting for? Did anybody ask? It’s usually kind of private and confidential, so you set yourself up for all this criticism.

  • Steve

    Wow. Another misguided “Christian” who has walked away from something called principles and morals. Good luck Sir. You have made your own bed…enjoy sleeping in it. I shall now unlike your site and no longer take anything you post as credible. You have become as malleable as Trump. Good luck. I believe you will need it in the end. 🙁

    • Skywatcher

      Steve, if you call yourself a “Christian” and you can so easily judge and write off another brother in Christ this easily, because of his personal convictions, you need to do some serious spiritual house-keeping. You’re in danger of Hell fire, Mt. 7: 1, 2. Not only did you disagree with him, but you attacked his character: “I shall now unlike your site and no longer take anything you post as credible. You have become as malleable as Trump.”

      I find it pretty abhorrent to see that a person can so easily toss somebody away because of a difference of opinion, which in this case, isn’t going to matter one way or the other. I don’t see you abiding by Romans 12: 10 here, “Be kindly affectioned one to another with brotherly love; in honour preferring one another…”

      Steve, you may disagree with Geoff’s position and points, and you’re allowed to do that. However, you have seriously sinned against God and Geoffrey! You and all others with this self-righteous and condemning spirit can expect to be judged in the same manner! Repent, and be saved!

  • Geoff,

    Would you please supply the link that shows that Ted Cruz had Copeland and Duplants pray over him – that Cruz asked them to do this? I really want to see this.

    Thanks,

    Geri

    • I never said that Copeland physically prayed over him, I said that “Laodicean bottom feeders like Kenneth Copeland and Jesse Duplantis who he had “pray over him” and “anoint him” to be president.” I put it in quotes because they prayed FOR Ted but prayed OVER his father. And Jesse Duplantis was thrown in because he is a Laodicean fraud like Copeland is, and there is a hyperlink to our story on the two of them, Copeland and Duplantis, defending their jet setting lifestyle,….the article shows to video to make things clear.

  • Maggie

    You need to be careful about slandering God’s prophets. You talk about saving a soul and in the same breath, tear one down that has brought millions into the kingdom of God.I wouldn’t want to answer for that ugly judgement over one of God’s chosen.Believe me, you will answer for that to God.

    • If you think that the demon-possessed Kenneth Copeland is “God’s prophet” that would be a very sad statement to make. If Copeland would have been alive in the time of Jesus he would have been one of the MONEYCHANGERS that Jesus threw out of the Temple.

    • Grace

      Maggie, It is a necessity to call out those who are in error and who has these who claim to be God’s prophets saved? The body of Christ needs the Holy Spirit’s discernment and not to follow the blind, the blind leads the blind and both fall into ditch, that is truly sad. If Copeland, duplantis, Price, Dollar, etc. had the faith they push onto other children of God they certainly would not need to ask for money or sell blessings like snake oil salesmen, they would have the faith of their own to believe God to meet their need for themselves and not rob God’s local churches, they prey on christians of weak faith and one’s who are desperate for blessings and do not teach one to trust in the Lord and lean not to one’s own understanding. Neither do the teach that salvation is in Jesus alone.

    Where does Trump stand with Israel? America is suffering the same horrific attacks NOW that Israel has been forced to endure for many years because of U.S. policy, even to the point of having a “Palestinian” passport accepted at U.S. airports as legitimate identification when no such state of Palestine even exists and is NOT on ANY MAP. What Trump does with Israel will determine the demise or continuation of this country, if Trump is elected president.

    Good informative article! I to am voting for Trump 2016!!

  • Dan Quixoté

    As soon as I saw the topic, I so looked forward to all the reader reactions. Fellow readers, you didn’t disappoint 😉 People’s engagement in political theatre is always surprising to me.

    Best line: “…should he survive the assassination attempt…”

    Hopefully he’ll take the order to drop out when he’s supposed to, to save his life. Ross Perot stayed in the race too long, thinking that maybe he could convert from paid saboteur to real candidate, and it took surviving an “inexplicable” airplane emergency to finally obey and drop out. I believe Trump is a populist decoy ringer, who will drop out at the last minute, to leave the Republicrat field in shambles, leaving Killary the only ostensible option, just like Perot was. Ex-Clinton team members have since reported that Bill and Ross spoke on the phone daily during the campaign. The deal was supposed to be that if Ross did what he was supposed to, his company EDS would be given the data processing business for HillaryCare. Thankfully it didn’t pass, too bad for EDS.

    That said, I don’t disagree with anything in today’s op-ed. It’s fun to hope that Trump is for real, especially since he’s such a character, frustrating so many in politics and the media who don’t get the joke.

    • Dan Quixote’, I really like your post. I was around for the Perot candidate run. Yes, it is fun to watch the media/politicians get stomped but I really question how much of this is real. Just like Obama seemed to come from nowhere quick. I recall the Dems calling him the rising star. Just like Trump a star that can’t get stomped. I could only hope our elections and vetting are true and factual. I stay engaged and wait to see what happens next.

      There is a huge difference between perot and trump, perot didn’t have the ppl behind him as trump does and this is a time like no other where the American ppl are fed up with the present administration which is why Trump is leading in all the polls and all Obama has done is cause divisions and chaos, Obama’s statement of change he meant but not as ppl took it to mean, change for Obama was to tear down christianity and lift up muslims among other things like running America into the ground, running up trillions in debt, making America of no effect in the international community, his handlers schooled him well and he being a good little puppet who follows them. I am surprised his nose hasn’t outweighed his head by now since it’s been growing like pinocchio…lol

  • Rev larry robinson

    As someone who has labored as a servant of the Lord for over 30 years, I come to a polar opposite conclusion about Mr Trump for most of the reasons you cited. And I believe the Lord has given me wisdom about the division Mr Trump is creating

    Between the constant Trump lies about others, his adamant denial of Christ’s command that all must repent to be His disciple, and the daily barrage of vulgar lies and highly offensive personal attacks by many of his supporters against not only the Republican Christian candidates, but conservative believers like myself, I have concluded with great sadness that the spirit of anti christ is driving the Trump campaign

    I do not lay this accusation against everyone who is supporting Trump. I know many fine Christians who are so fed up that they see Trump as the answer to turn this country around. But sacrificing not only conservative principles, but more importantly sacrificing Christian integrity and character is not worth it.

    Hear the Word of the Lord and reflect and pray.

    “For many deceivers have gone out into the world who do not confess Jesus Christ as coming in the flesh. This is a deceiver and an antichrist. Look to yourselves, that we do not lose those things we worked for, but that we may receive a full reward.
    Whoever transgressesfn and does not abide in the doctrine of Christ does not have God. He who abides in the doctrine of Christ has both the Father and the Son. If anyone comes to you and does not bring this doctrine, do not receive him into your house nor greet him; for he who greets him shares in his evil deeds.”
    2John 1:7-11

    “If someone says, “I love God,” and hates his brother, he is a liar; for he who does not love his brother whom he has seen, how can he love God whom he has not seen? And this commandment we have from Him: that he who loves God must love his brother also.” 1 John 4:20,21

    “We know that we have passed from death to life, because we love the brethren. He who does not love his brother abides in death. Whoever hates his brother is a murderer, and you know that no murderer has eternal life abiding in him.” 1 John 3:14,15

    Since you have been raised to new life with Christ, set your sights on the realities of heaven, where Christ sits in the place of honor at God’s right hand. Think about the things of heaven, not the things of earth. For you died to this life, and your real life is hidden with Christ in God. And when Christ, who is your life, is revealed to the whole world, you will share in all his glory.
    So put to death the sinful, earthly things lurking within you. Have nothing to do with sexual immorality, impurity, lust, and evil desires. Don’t be greedy, for a greedy person is an idolater, worshiping the things of this world. Because of these sins, the anger of God is coming. You used to do these things when your life was still part of this world. But now is the time to get rid of anger, rage, malicious behavior, slander, and dirty language. Colossians 3:1-8

          Thomas, it is difficult to read the KJV the first several times, but after that, it becomes second nature. I’d rather study a book I have to work at to understand, than to have one that is simple to read and be doctrinally inaccurate. Besides, taking the time to work through the old English allows the knowledge to last longer in my mind, so there is a benefit to that too! 🙂

        • Thomas…at least the KJV doesn’t edit out proof texts that Jesus is God (Revelation 1:6,8,11) and make Jesus to be a liar(John 7:8-10). I could list many, many more. truth beats laziness when it comes to the eternal word of God. The KJV may have a speck in it’s eye, but the new versions have a 500 ton plank. 🙂

      Thank you sir. These are good passages to reflect upon.

    • Skywatcher

      Rev. Larry, it most definitely appears that the USA and indeed, the whole world is longing for and looking for a savior. The same was true when the Muslim man was campaigning. When he got in, he was lauded and praised in the schools, etc. as being a messiah figure. Well, your American world, and my Canadian world is much worse off now! The deceived masses back then are still crying out for a savior of sorts.

      If you cannot vote for Trump, then of all the scum that is represented, which one would you choose, and why, please? In Canada, we’re learning that Cruz and other so-called “professing Christian” candidates are really not as they say. They are merely making such statements to garner votes…just as Ovomit and other crooks before him did.

      Thank you, for your input, and I look forward to your reply!

    TRUMP 2016. I was 5 yrs military prior to my Christ awakening. If TRUMP does what he says he should be a good president and a good commander in chief.. If you wanna unsubscribe or leave this site because of Christian people voting TRUMP then adios boys. TRUMP 2016 all the way.

  • Bart

    I’m laughing so hard. A bunch of whiny Christians mad cause they feel like they need to vote for Cruz cause he’s a real Christian. Cruz is a straight up typical politician. So much talking and going around circles until we lose interest of what he’s even saying while he’s not answering questions that he’s asked. Also with the way he stole votes? Rediclious. I don’t trust him at all. Good article and I agree with everything you said on it.

    People really need to stop with this crap. We’re voting based on race, sex, and religion nowadays? This is how we got Obama into office. You guys seriously want another Obama? Didn’t learn the first time? Trump cares a whole lot more about Christians than Obama, let me tell you. He’s the one saying we have a Muslim problem and that Christians are being beheaded. Jesus spoke truth, people wanted him dead because of the truth. So stop being so sensitive when Trump speaks truth.

    • Bart

      Cruz is the second last person I’d vote for, Hillary of course is last.

    IS IT SOCIAL MEDIA’S FAULT ???
    “The algorithms built into these social networks are designed to reinforce this natural human tendency and expand upon it—if you like this, you’ll like this. The networks reinforce your existing point of view in order to give you more of what you like, as that will make you happy and keep you on the network—and, in turn, more ads can be accurately targeted !”
    So…..
    “As often happens when groups of like-minded individuals discuss something, the result is that their points of view are not only reinforced but also become more extreme.”
    THAT IS WHY, Trump supporters are immune to criticism and to the exposure of his lies and false accusations: for the most part these algorithms and subsequent self-censorship make it so that they never see anything but what they already agree with,” Byrne wrote.
    “As often happens when groups of like-minded individuals discuss something, the result is that their points of view are not only reinforced but also become more extreme.”

  • Mike

    Want makes you think trump will actually do anything he says he will considering most all of his new conservative principles are in direct contradiction to what he has stood for his whole life.

  • Wendy

    This makes me sad. Basically this is hard core separation of church and state. I believe the bible I just don’t want it to influence any part of my political thinking. If you try and use evil to fight evil you still end up with a bunch of evil. I’ve been handing out your gospel tracks for some time and now feel I’ve been inviting people to a church only to hear the paster say the bible is just a collection of stories and not the word of God. I guess we have both been suckers to the art of the deal.

  • Diana

    How can you, as a Christian, support Trump when he is pro choice and approves LGBT? These are strong issues that can’t be ignored! He’s also a hothead and know it all and very in-diplomatic. Much prayer is needed in this decision!

  • Val Black

    I can’t believe you are really in favor of Trump. The guy is more of a narcissistic that Obama. He’s okay with Planned Parenthood adding that they do a “lot of good”, disregarding the fact the bad they do far outweighs any “good” they may do. And as for Copeland praying over Cruz, Copeland and a bunch of other charismatics laid hands on Trump also. See here: http://www.charismanews.com/opinion/watchman-on-the-wall/52365-exclusive-kenneth-copeland-lays-hands-and-prays-over-donald-trump

  • I have to agree with everything you stated. You told the truth about Trump, but he is like a loose cannon. I like Cruz but in the end the Lord Jesus Christ has known from the beginning of time who He will allow & the reason & whatever He has decided is what I want. I believe we are in the End Times & that EVERYTHING is going to get worse, may be tomorrow or years but I think soon. I am praying for all those who have never believed in The Lord Jesus Christ will so they can go to heaven & not hell.

  • Val Black

    I can’t believe you are really in favor of Trump. The guy is more of a narcissistic that Obama.

    And in regards to the KJV only, try that in Bulgaria, China, Russia, or any other place in the world where English isn’t their first language. If the Gospel is to be spread throughout the world it must first be translated into other languages. If a Christian was locked up in a cell in some part of the world and the only version available was the NIV (although I don’t like it) I doubt if he would reject it.

    Geoffrey,

    It is written to pray for our leaders, pray for the peace of our nation and seek for the salvation of men. We also know how God can use heathen kings for his own purposes (such as using Babylon to punish Israel).

    Concerning earthly governments:

    In 1 Sam 8, when Israel asks for a king, God warns them that such a system is outside of his will and the result will be punishment and hardship

    As you quoted Daniel in your article, we also know that God sets the basest, or lowliest of men over the earthly kingdoms (Dan 4:17)

    Revelation says that in the last days it’s God’s will that the kingdoms of men will handed over to the beast (Rev 17:17)

    A folly of Israel was setting up kings apart from God (Hos 8:4)

    God purposed that Israel’s enemies would dominate them due to their sin unless they repented (Jer 44:23)

    In consideration of these things and being humble in our limited revelation of the plans of God (1 Cor 13:12), It seems to me that the whole democratic system is a vain thing that the Lord is using to show us the futility of governing outside of his will. According to bible prophecy, which you have studied, is there any reason why we should expect America to prevail with a new human leader and be exempt from being enveloped by the beast system? Would not any reprieve be only politically superficial and temporary at best?

    Donald is calling out many politicians to do what is right, but is he calling the American people back to repentance, as the OT prophets did? Would the godlness nations in North America vote for Isaiah, Jeremiah or Ezekiel?

    I am not being facetious here, Geoffrey, but am really wondering your thoughts on this.

    • Phony Name

    Brother Geoffrey, it certainly isn’t easy being on the front lines, is it! I wish some of these people would stop for a moment and realize that Mt. 7: 1 also applies to them. I also wish people would show a little love and courtesy by putting the name of the person they are responding to in their comments somewhere, so people would know who is attacking whom! 🙂

    The whole sad thing about this post is that people are too quick to write people off and to throw them into the fire because of a difference of opinion! Why can’t humans just agree to disagree, and to leave judging up to the Righteous Judge? There’s not a single one of us who hasn’t said something that somebody didn’t agree with. Based on the criteria that is being used against you, NOT A SINGLE soul would be going to Heaven! The so-called “saints” would be throwing EVERYBODY into Hell!

    Keep up the great work, my brother!

    • The flash

      In context, that scripture in Mat 7:1 refers to judging in hypocrisy. Does it apply here?

      Did not Paul command us to to judge one another, including prophecy (1 Cor 5:12, 1 Cor 14:29)?. Did not Paul appoint the least in the church to judge (1 Cor 6:2-4)?

      And anyone who is truly led of the Lord would welcome it, knowing the tenancies of the flesh.

      The mercy here is that we have all erred in judgment and require correction, myself included, not to use the “don’t judge” blanket of the false churches today to escape doctrinal accountability.

      Geoffrey has influence and in claiming to be a teacher puts himself under a greater degree of judgment. We do him no favors by petting any wayward doctrines or ignoring the rest of scripture that clearly calls us to hold one another accountable and correct potentially false teachings.

      • KY

        flash,

        “Geoffrey has influence and in claiming to be a teacher puts himself under a greater degree of judgment. We do him no favors by petting any wayward doctrines or ignoring the rest of scripture that clearly calls us to hold one another accountable and correct potentially false teachings.”

        That is my feeling also.

      • Skywatcher

        I hear what you’re saying, The Flash, but Mt. 7: 1 applies to the situation I’ve used it in. People are reading Geoffrey’s comments and then going against this reference, which teaches that we are NOT to judge people with a hypocritical eye and then write them off, having nothing more to do with them. They see the speck, but cannot see the plank in their own eye.

        Geoffrey is made in the image and likeness of God, just the same as these judges. God has given NOBODY the right to judge ANYBODY in this manner! That is the role of Christ and Christ’s alone.

        You said, “Did not Paul command us to to judge one another, including prophecy (1 Cor 5:12, 1 Cor 14:29)?. Did not Paul appoint the least in the church to judge (1 Cor 6:2-4)?”

        I agree with you, but that is not the same judgment that is spoken of in Mt. 7: 1,2. In the passages you cited, it means to determine or to discern whether or not someone is towing the line or aligning with Scripture. See the difference? We can do as Paul commanded, but, at the same time, not write people off. Paul’s message contained a lot of repentance and reconciliation. The judges on this site are NOT allowing for these two key elements, if there was anything wrong in Geoff’s article. Therefore, they subscribe to Mt. 7: 1, 2..

        • the flash

          The point is that there is extra-biblical commentary outside of the normal core doctrines and that should be examined by others, in the spirit of humble correction and edifying.

          The false church wants to exclude that kind of assessment. Paul talked much about adhering to sound doctrine and that many would not put up with it in the last days. There has to be a remnant that are willing to keep one another accountable.

          Did not Jesus wonder if he would find faith when he returned?

          • Skywatcher

            the flash, you are right; there’s no disputing that! 🙂

            As long as we continue to keep Scriptures in the context they were written and intended, there is no issue. Having a humble spirit is an issue for some, and then for others, they just come on here with verbal diarrhea, spout off their mess in anonymity, and then scamper off like the cowards they are. They don’t press the button that allows us to enter into dialogue with them. Sometimes, I think they are nothing more than trolls. We do the best that we can to be “good Bereans” of the Word! We don’t always get it bang on, but most of the time we do, thank the dear Holy Spirit for that!
            God bless you!

    • Skywatcher

      BUTtONS, we really don’t know what DT’s plans are! A wise person NEVER shows his hand before the game is over! Look at Ovomit! He showed a little bit, but after he got in, then he showed his true colors. We don’t know but what this may be what DT is doing! You don’t want to throw off a good chunk of your voters by presenting negative goals and agendas! DT is Mr. Cool! He’s being as wise as a serpent, and he may come around and bite some of these groups who are antichristian, abortionists, etc. In the meantime, he has to play his cards very carefully, so he can garner as many votes as possible. To me, that is a great strategy! Let’s face it! America, Canada, and whoever ARE washed up! The vermin are coming in by the thousands and the millions; they’re being allowed to infiltrate high positions of authority in government, defence, universities, schools, etc. We’re all done but the cryin’! The only one who can deliver us from evil is the Lord Jesus Christ Himself, and we need to be focusing on He and His will. We need to be keeping our own personal lamps full of oil and watching and waiting for His return, which could set the stage for the Antichrist to come into full power…temporarily!

      You said, “How can God bless this country with a man like him.” Let me remind you…you don’t have much to choose from, and furthermore, how did God bless your country with a man like Ovomit in the Oval Outhouse? I’m afraid most would take the devil now, just to be rid of that clown! Desperation will cause people to do some mighty peculiar things! Just sayin’…

    Trump is the only candidate not bought out by Goldman Sachs et al, the usual buyers of our government. In the debate last night, his explanation of his changing political positions was convincing. Pointing out that Reagan spent most of his life as a Democrat, before waking up and changing his party and his stands on issues, was a brilliant way to address previous non-conservative stands.

    I love Trump too for all the same reasons Geoffrey states. Nope, he’s not perfect, but the guy has guts. He’s not afraid of anyone. He’s tough. We don’t need anymore week kneed pushovers and politicians trying to pad their own pockets. Trump doesn’t have to pander to anyone. He calls ISIS terrorists, he wants to stop illegals from stealing our jobs. He knows living in America has attributed to him becoming a very wealthy and successful businessman. He appreciates this land of opportunity and wants America to stay that way and benefit us all. We have been sold out on every front. It’s time we get a president who appreciates America and all the opportunity we have here instead of crushing the heads of everyone who tries to make something of themselves. We can all learn something from Donald Trump. Like him or not, he’s a champion, a winner, and that’s what kind of leader we need.

  • I;m not at all surprised by your support for a God rejecting, fornicator, Pro-abortion, Pro-Fag, foul mouth liar. I have seen over this last year alone how God is sifting His people. Those who claim to be Christian are being shown by God in these last days to be everything but. By their fruits…. Your understanding of Ted Cruz and his faith and love for the Lord is surely lacking. Ted Cruz is a true Born again Bible Believing Brother in Christ Jesus yet, you side with a person who’s a devil. That’s all I need to know about you… I will be discontinuing my interest in your website. I find it rather interesting that you people are placing your faith in a devil instead of a man of God. We know what Happen when God gives a nation over to its one demise and this Nation has long since been under the judgment of God. As my Website ask, Who’s Your final Authority?, according to you and your kind Donal Trump. Enjoy explaining that to God…

    • Oh really, then what will you say after Trump gets elected seeing that it is God that “sets up kings”? And why would God set up a king like Obama? Is God unrighteous? Because He allowed the worst, most Godless president in the history of America to run this country for 8 years. Your argument makes NO sense at all.

      Trump is not a “devil”, he is a lost, unsaved man who needs Jesus. Any room in all your hate to pray for his salvation? Because that’s what CHRISTIANS are called to do.

        There truly is something for everyone in this election and now that we have trashed Ted Cruz for being something he may not be, it is only fair that as a public service we give some equal time to “what you see is what you get”, Donald Trump. It looks like DONALD TRUMP MAY BE A JESUIT, JUST LIKE THE POPE! I don’t know if you have ever read the Jesuit Oath, but parts of it read like an oath a soldier with ISIS might take. Check out some of the violence they swear to do to their “enemies”. I don’t know about you but after this I know a Jesuit is the way to go!
        Here is an excerpt:

        I furthermore promise and declare that I will, when opportunity present, make and wage relentless war, secretly or openly, against all heretics, Protestants and Liberals, as I am directed to do, to extirpate and exterminate them from the face of the whole earth; and that I will spare neither age, sex or condition; and that I will hang, waste, boil, flay, strangle and bury alive these infamous heretics, rip up the stomachs and wombs of their women and crush their infants’ heads against the walls, in order to annihilate forever their execrable race. That when the same cannot be done openly, I will secretly use the poisoned cup, the strangulating cord, the steel of the poniard or the leaden bullet, regardless of the honor, rank, dignity, or authority of the person or persons, whatever may be their condition in life, either public or private, as I at any time may be directed so to do by any agent of the Pope or Superior of the Brotherhood of the Holy Faith, of the Society of Jesus. In confirmation of which, I hereby dedicate my life, my soul and all my corporal powers, and with this dagger which I now receive, I will subscribe my name written in my own blood, in testimony thereof; and should I prove false or weaken in my determination, may my brethren and fellow soldiers of the Militia of the Pope cut off my hands and my feet, and my throat from ear to ear, my belly opened and sulphur burned therein, with all the punishment that can be inflicted upon me on earth and my soul be tortured by demons in an eternal hell forever! All of which, I, _, do swear by the Blessed Trinity and blessed Sacraments, which I am now to receive, to perform and on my part to keep inviolable; and do call all the heavenly and glorious host of heaven to witness the blessed Sacrament of the Eucharist, and witness the same further with my name written and with the point of this dagger dipped in my own blood and sealed in the face of this holy covenant.”

        The full oath can be found here: http://www.reformation.org/jesuit-oath.html

        Why was Trump selected?

        Trump spent two years at Jesuit Fordham and Trump’s son Eric not only went to Jesuit Georgetown but is a board member of the Georgetown “Business Society and Public Policy Initiative Board of Advisors”.

        In fact, the rest of the board lists like a “Who’s Who” in the circles of the Ruling Elite and Controlled Opposition:

        President of the European Commission from 2004-2014, “His Excellency” José Manuel Barroso (a Georgetown alumnus)*
        “The Honorable” Tom Daschle—Roman Catholic radical Leftist who spent decades ensconced in the political halls of power eventually rising to be both Senate Minority and Majority Leaders.
        CEO of Hewlett Packard Carly Fiorina—another darling of the sophistry that is the current Republican political scene.
        “His Excellency” Vicente Fox—former President of Mexico from 2000-2006, he was the Chief Executive Officer for the poison of Coca Cola to be spread throughout Latin America. Fox was Jesuit-educated at both Campion High School and the Universidad Iberoamericana. Fox has even lobbied before Congress to increase their treason on the border (in and of itself, an act of subversion).
        “Mormon” Jon Huntsman, former Ambassador to China, former Governor of Utah. Huntsman is a graduate of the University of Pennsylvania; more on that shortly.
        Sheikh Dr. Khalid bin Thani al Thani, a member of the ruling family of Qatar.
        His Excellency Aleksander Kwasniewski, President of Poland from 1995 to 2005, just to name a few.
        Somehow, Reddit allowed this fantastic article by the mysterious Veritas__Aequitas that I will repost in its entirety—

        Donald Trump has been the subject of media frenzy as of late. It seems that a considerable amount of those who subscribe to alternative sources of information are Trump supporters. They see him as some kind of rebel, going against both the Republican and Democratic parties (as exemplified by his recent non-commitment to support the Republican nominee for President).

        Could it be though, that Donald Trump is a “false flag candidate” being used to secure the vote of the ever-increasing independent constituency in order to inevitably lull the US into a false sense of positive political novelty and thus to subsequently impose Jesuitical right-wing fascism leading to a nation-wide race war as devised by the masters of class adversarialism, the Sons of Loyola?

        It very well could be. Here is why:

        Trump claims to be Presbyterian, yet he attended Jesuit Fordham University for two years and then transferred to the covertly Jesuit-controlled University of Pennsylvania.1

        The University of Pennsylvania is funded by various Papal Court Jews, notably by The Annenberg Foundation,2 started by Papal Knight and hofjude Walter Hubert Annenberg. Annenberg briefly attended the University of Pennsylvania in his youth and later established the Annenberg School for Communication at the University of Pennsylvania. Mr. Annenberg is a Knight Commander of the Order of St. Gregory the Great.3, 4

        Court Jew David L. Cohen is the Chairman of the Board of Trustees of the University of Pennsylvania as well as an alumnus of University of Pennsylvania. He is also the executive vice president of Comcast.5 He was recently named co-chairman of the leadership planning committee of the Roman Catholic World Meeting of Families in Philadelphia (which is the coming of the Pope to Philadelphia!)6

        University of Pennsylvania could be renamed “Hofjude University” because of its enormous amount of Papist Jewish funding and leadership and really the entire Pennsylvania area is controlled by the Roman Catholic hierarchy via the Jesuit provincial holding jurisdiction over Pennsylvania, the Archbishop of Philadelphia and the Bishop of Pittsburgh in conjunction with the temporal coadjutor government officials produced from UPenn and the following Roman Catholic or Catholic-funded Universities: La Salle University, Duquesne University, Pennsylvania State University, Villanova University, Temple University and Saint Joseph’s University.

        Protestants do not attend Roman Catholic institutions, especially counter-reformation Jesuit institutions like Fordham University, so Trump is at the very least an apostate for having done that. However, the story does not end with Trump.

        Out of the five children he has, the three listed on Wikipedia have attended the following schools:7, 8, 9

        Donald John Trump, Jr. – Alma mater: University of Pennsylvania

        Ivanka Marie Trump – Alma mater: University of Pennsylvania

        Eric Frederic Trump – Alma mater: Georgetown University

        There you have it; Trump, in addition to being affiliated with both Jesuit Fordham and covertly Jesuit UPenn, has at least three children who are all alumni of UPenn and notorious Jesuit Georgetown University!

        Whether it be Trump, Jeb Bush, Hilary Clinton or even Bernie Sanders that ends up winning the 2016 election, all of these candidates are connected to Rome and all will only serve to implement the tyrannical, neo-Romanist policies of the Papacy and its professed soldiers of the Society of Jesus.

        There you have it. Now lets at go back to supporting the only man who stands up for issues Christians care about, Ted Cruz.

      • Skywatcher

        Amen, Geoffrey! You stick to your guns! Nobody really knows what’s going to happen until it happens. You don’t profess to be a prophet, but from the bunch of ducks that are quacking and messing all over the political arena, if I were American, DT would have 1000 of my votes, if it were possible!

        I don’t know why people are so opposed to business people who have acumen and are successful. It just never makes sense to me…apart from their being jealous. A businessman like DT is exactly what your country needs. My country (Canada) needs to take out shares in the Pamper company, to clothe our baby Prime Monster! He’s turning Kanada’s economy into one that will match the USA’s very shortly. None of us have much to choose from for leaders, and God’s will is going to be accomplished, no matter who votes what. For heaven’s sake…even those counting the ballots will make sure of that! I’m so reminded of the horrendous ballot botch-up in Florida so many years ago, in the Bush clownpaign! The same is happening already in this election.

        Stand strong and proud, Geoffrey! You’re the messenger, and as you know, the message is NOT always gladly received by all. You may lose a few subscribers, but from the maturity I see lacking in their departing comments, I’d take that as a kiss from God! He’s got your back!

      • Geoffrey,
        The last video of Fox interviewing Trump he told Bret Brier he is a good Christian that is why he called out Cruz for lying. I do not support anyone yet, but Donald did say plain as day, he is a good Christian.
        How can I pray if he says he is already serving Christ? Just a question because I do not know where he stands with God.

        • Read the opening paragraph of the article…Trump is not born again.

        • Ann

          Obama says he a Christian too and yet a lot of the posters on this website call him anything but because he serves all Americans including the Muslim population.

          • KY

            Ann, If Obama is a Christian he is the most perverted leader we have ever elected and he is not “serving” all Americans, HE IS USING ALL AMERICANS to destroy the country.

          • Skywatcher

            Ann, it’s readily apparent that you know little to nothing about Barry Sotero…Ovomit, YOUR president! He was NOT born in the USA, and I’m a Canadian who knows this! I’ve been following this Muslim ever since he started his campaign. The first thing he did when he got into office was to have ALL his personal information sealed away, with executive ORDERS that it was NEVER to be opened! Why do you suppose that is, if he has nothing to hide? Why does Cruz want to do the same?

            When he made his first visit to Ghana, why did the headlines in the newspaper read, “USA President Visits Homeland of His Birth”? Can you tell me what that means? There was also another Muslim country that did that too; is it possible for one to be born in two different countries? Then it gets worse! The manufactured birth certificate that he produced was clearly a forgery! It showed two different pieces of paper, conveniently taped together, but guess what? The two type fonts didn’t match! Hold on! It gets even better! The birth certificate number could not have been his and it wasn’t!

            There were two twin girls born at that time and in that hospital, yet his number matched one of theirs! If it walks like a duck, quacks like a duck…it’s not an American-born president! It’s an imposter!

            So tell me, Ann, was this guy ever really born at all or just hatched off a rock? Do you still feel like standing up for this Muslim who has internally destroyed your country? The worst thing any country can do is to elect people to positions of government or defense that HAVE NOT been born or raised in that country. They can destroy it from within without any sense of moral responsibility to the people because they are NOT his own! He is morally and psychologically removed from the scene of the crime; he has no personal ties and can kill or destroy with a clean conscience!

            Obama is no more a Christian than a pork chop is a Muslim! Whenever he goes to a Christian university or any other place that normally has Scripture plaques or other religious items on display, they are told two weeks prior to his coming that those things have to be covered or removed! Why is that? Your nation was allegedly founded upon Christian principles, so why does Islam all of a sudden have preeminence over Christ?

            In Canada, your election campaign is on our news DAILY, and NUMEROUS times, we’ve heard it said that Cruz IS Canadian. To elect anybody to the presidential office who is NOT born an American in this case, flies in direct opposition to your Constitution as well as to my Cdn. Constitution!

            May I lovingly and graciously encourage you to do some serious research on the people you’re defending before you continue to use degrading “verbiage” to cast down the ones who REALLY know what they’re talking about?

            One last footnote, I found it utmost despicable to see a Muslim raised to the office of president, immediately after Muslims were accused of killing thousands of innocent people on 9/11. Doesn’t that kind of speak volumes to you, on some level, Ann? And now…there is a mosque on or near Ground Zero to boot! What a wonderful commemoration of a horrendously evil act, and yet, they are rewarded and memorialized in such a blatant manner as that! Shameful, beyond measurable degree!

            I don’t mean to offend you, but people like you who spout off and defend the enemy makes me absolutely sick! No wonder your country is going down the crapper; so few of you REALLY know what’s going on or anything about the people you elect! You go by the propaganda that the media outlets spews out on a daily basis! Very sad. I thought the American people had much more on the ball than that, but you’ve proven me wrong.

      • Dianne

        News Flash Geoffrey,mew the people of the UNITED STATES OF AMERICA haven’t had a King rule over us since 1776. Do not blame God for what the VOTERS choose as their president. God is not MOCKED!!

    I’m enjoying watching the Donald stand on all the establishment bunions. The squealing is music to my ears. Jump on those bunions Donald.

  • LKZ

    Pray for Donald Trump’s salvation.
    I doubt he has ever rubbed elbows with so many believers in his life.

    God wastes nothing.

    Great article – thank you.

    • Great comment, thx for writing 🙂

    • Skywatcher

      AMEN, LKZ! Let’s hope those Protestant defectors and charismatic clowns/heretics don’t get to him or he’s still going to be a lost cause! They have a lot of clout and are “everywhere” in government…when it’s to their advantage!

    • LKZ, Donald stated he is a good Christian in is interview with Brett Brier. He said that is why he called out lying of Cruz. SO he is already a Christian so how do I pray for his salvation? TY

  • Nancy

    Donald Trump appeals to many who are fed up with the statis. He spent two years at a Jesuit college (Fordham)before going on to Wharton. For me that is huge red flag. One of the best books exposing the Jesuits is “Rulers of Evil” by Tupper Saussy.Or you might want to read Sun-tzu to see where we are headed.

    You surely must know that Rome is responsible for Islam (Alberto’s expose’) and that the head Jesuit black popes are always high-up masons. The fact that the present white pope is a Jesuit is also telling. Also, study the realtionship between he Israeli Supreme Court and the Masonic Lodge. There are many hidden masons, as well as hidden Jesuits among us.

    How does Donald Trump fit into this? Donald Trump has pledged to move the US embassy to Jerusalem as soon as he is elected. This will help the ongoing fulfillment of Bible prophecy. The rulers of this world are ordained by God for His purpose and to fulfill His Word. Don’t put your hope in any political party or person, no matter what they say – look forward to the rapture.

    • KY

      Nancy,
      Great Post!
      You may be interested in what I found out about The Donald and the Jesuits, 3 posts up. It is long.

    There have been some recent rallies:

    Baton Rouge:
    https://youtu.be/ZIB5XO-0s74

    Tampa:
    https://youtu.be/YlH0rdW3ks8

    He said at one of these rallies that he would stop with the off-color language.
    HE has also publicly said he changed his stance on abortion and is now pro-life.

    I see a heart changing and am reminded of this verse – pay special attention to verse 11:

    1Co 6:9 Do you not know that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived; neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor abusers, nor homosexuals,
    1Co 6:10 nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God.
    1Co 6:11 And such were some of you. But you are washed, but you are sanctified, but you are justified in the name of the Lord Jesus, and by the Spirit of our God.

    Scripture tells us how to identify the man of sin He will come disguised as an angel of light. He will come to the world as a man of peace at first. He will be given supernatural strength to show signs and perform wonders. He will exalt himself and magnify himself above every god. He also will have the number 666 that is the value of his name. He will corrupt men and gain their allegiance through deceit and flattery. Rev 13:3-15 “He performs great signs, so that he even makes fire come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men.( fire and light in the O.T and new are related to the glory of God in the temple, at Elijah’s altar, at the transfiguration and at Pentecost, so he will counterfeit this)14 And he deceives those who dwell on the earth by those signs which he was granted to do in the sight of the beast, telling those who dwell on the earth to make an image to the beast who was wounded by the sword and lived. (To my knowledge no Pope has done any signs and wonders yet . Jesus said this would be his basis of operation Mt.24:24. Notice it states the whole earth makes an image of the beast, where would this be? 2 Thess. Again tells us it will be erected in the temple. 15 He was granted power to give breath to the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak and cause as many as would not worship the image of the beast to be killed.” (This beast will be a miracle worker like no one else, he has the power to give life to this image and it speaks, he also kills those who are not worshipping the image. Is the image a day as some claim? I hardly think so, unless you spiritualize this passage. It is a look alike of the beast.

    Consider all the miracles that have to do with statues today inside and outside the Catholic Church, we can see it already operating. Statues of the Virgin Mary and Jesus are reported to `cry’ tears of human blood or olive oil, counseling observers to return to the spiritual path. (numerous sources) Rocking Madonna of Ballinspittle, Ireland the statue moves back and forth as you view it from the bottom of a small hill.

    But this is not the only place miracles like this are occurring, they are happening all over the world in different religions.

    Greenville Sun, Virginian Pilot, Pasadena Star-News, Manila Bulletin, and others report Radiant crosses of light, are seen by tens of thousands from California to the Philippines, it brings spontaneous healings . Rainbow colored light emanates from an image of Maitreya Buddha which suddenly appeared on a bathroom window of a home in Nagano City, Japan.

    In Senegal and the UK, Muslim families discover the symbol for Allah formed on or in garden of vegetables. Reuters reported A 12-year-old Lebanese girl produces tiny crystals from her eyes.

    In Nairobi, Kenya, a man appears `out of the blue’ He appeared miraculously before 6,000 people at a prayer meeting. Many in attendance are healed. He then leaves in an equally mysterious manner, promising to return with a “bucketful of blessings”. He was photographed addressing (in their own language) thousands of people who instantly recognized Him as the Christ. The story and photo were carried by news media around the world. (Kenya Times, BBC, CNN and newspapers worldwide) worshippers at Muslim Village, Kawangware, Nairobi, believe they saw Jesus Christ , in broad daylight . “Whole villages are visited by the “man in white robes”; people see him and recognize him. They call him Aisa, the Muslim Arabic name for Jesus.” The man in white is now known to many.” ( Source: Evangelical Broadcasting Company, Holland ) It is Maitreya who calls himself Christ. His recent appearances are in Thessalonica Afghanistan and Bolivia.

    Since late 1991 Maitreya has been carrying out a series of appearances like the one in Nairobi, Kenya.. Dutch television viewers watching a program entitled Healing and Faith, made by the Evangelical Broadcasting company, recently heard eyewitness accounts of miraculous healings and of many places in the Middle East where “the man in white” is known

    A continuous wave of miraculous phenomena including crosses of light, manifestations of Jesus and Mary in the clouds, weeping statues of the Madonna, milk-drinking Hindu icons, wells of healing water in Mexico, Germany and elsewhere, are occurring with more & more frequency. His restraining seems to be slowly removed until at once it will no longer restrain.

    Benjamen Creme the harbinger for the new age Christ states “the world today is filled with miracles … Maitreya says those who search for signs will find them (this is the very reason Jesus said not to do so, a warning to those being trained in the church to look for the signs). “But the world is filled with signs of his presence … the appearances of the Modanna all over the world, the moving Modanna the statues … (Just like the life that will be given to the image of the beast in the temple that is soon to be built) . “The icons of Jesus which cry, the Madonna’s which cry real tears sometimes blood this is happening by the hundreds and thousands all over the world. Now in the eastern world among the Hindus we have the extraordinary milk miracle in September 1996 when for 4 days the statues of kanesha and Shivah would often lap up the milk the milk virtually disappeared by the millions of gallons the milk ran dry in India…(Hinduism Today and numerous other newspapers worldwide)

    (Benjamen Creme on the Art Bell program talked about TV cameras filming a statue drinking milk. Even the camera operators would hold out the milk in a cap or a spoon to the statue which is made of wood and the milk literally disappeared. that I think is the most widespread and greatest type of miracle which has ever happened in the world. …” The milk was of course not drunk by the statue made of brass.. it was made to disappear by Maitreya and a group of masters who do that type of thing (like James and Jambres deception, a good supernatural parlor trick by spirits.)

    However, the deception can only take root in those who do not receive the love of the truth; they want a lie, and God will send them a strong delusion. 2 Thess. 2:10 and 11, that those who reject the gospel now will not be given a second chance after the Rapture, God will send them a strong delusion that they should not be saved.

    The people who make the eternal mistake of receiving the mark and worshiping the beast and/or his image will be deceived by accompanying miraculous signs and wonders which they think takes place from the real Christ:

    All the miracles we see today have to do with Idolatry. Apparitions, statues moving eyes ,crying, blood ,milk drank by a statue .This is all specifically addressed in Rev.13:14 and 2 Thess.2:2 as a warning. As the evil generation went after Jesus signs when he was here in the flesh it appears it will be the same for that last generation .

  • DC

    I never thought I’d see the day when I thought Jimmy Carter, a Christian, wasn’t so bad, but after 2 Obama terms, I’m sure the man is saying, “nah nah nah nah nah nah!”

    Similar to Obama, people loved Kennedy, the 1st Catholic president, and his character and the Bay of Pigs fiasco made him a great disappointment. (Brother Ted sure kept getting elected, didn’t he? So much for Catholic, pro-life teachings.)

    Reagan seemed a godly man, but Nancy and her psychic hot line made for one unyoked marriage, to say the least.

    Clinton went to church….appearances are so deceiving.

    We could go all the way back to Washington, who appeared to believe in God but was also a Freemason. All, Christian or not, have weaknesses in one area or another. The point is, sometimes voting for president is like buying a pig in a poke. We just never know what they are going to do once they are sworn into office. (Not getting the oath right 1st try should’ve been telling w/ Obama, but thou shalt not criticize Oprah’s “chosen one.”) Promises before the historic midterm elections went empty within months. The AC’s going to make & break a lot of them.

    We began as a Christian nation, but there are so many pagan symbols in DC (Columbia being a goddess), that it’s hard to believe we have been blessed as much as we have. I believe it’s only because of how we once blessed Israel that we got as far as we did, and our national decline has as much to do with how Obama’s treated Bibi and Israel as it does with the loss of morals and abortion.

    No matter what, I always voted and I always voted pro-life no matter how many people said it was stupid to be a one-issue voter. I always believed that if a politician isn’t going to fight for the most vulnerable, s/he won’t fight for me. When PP still got their half-billion dollars, after all we now know, I completely lost faith in almost all of them.

    I honestly don’t know for whom I’ll vote next month. As the candidates start dropping like flies, our choices will be fewer. I will vote R, but I will not get my hopes up with any of them. I don’t see any signs of national repentance and revival, though I pray fervently for it, so I am expecting judgment. I, too, have a funny feeling that there won’t even be an election, or we won’t be here to worry about it.

    Meanwhile, I continue to pray that God will lead me and His will be done. Christians fighting over candidates or threatening to leave the site doesn’t help His will. I noticed Geoff said that the site wasn’t endorsing Trump but him personally. He thinks, if we’re to clean up BO’s mess, that Trump’s the best choice. Cruz might be the greatest Christian since Steven, but if he’s weak on other things, are we better off? Either of them could be the AC, for all we know. Even the AC doesn’t know he’s the AC right now, though I do believe he’s alive now. If we recover, great; hopefully there’s more time for more to get saved. If we’re done for, we’re done for. We have a Blessed Hope which no man can give us. We have to live here, for now, but it is not our Home.

    • Skywatcher

      DC, that was a fantastic oration and right on the money! Thank you, for that godly insight!

      I believe you nailed it!

  • Michael

    Senator Ted Cruz walked out of a so called Christian rally dinner that were booing Israel. NO OTHER CANDIDATES WOULD DO THAT OTHER THAN SENATOR CRUZ. Since your supposed to know your bible you must have forgotten that GOD SAID I will bless those that bless you and curse those that curse you. That is why this country is where it is today BECAUSE OF THE COWARDLY CHURCH.The real reason the so called church today are supporting Trump is they are more concerned about worldly things such as JOBS period. It was NOT Senator Ted Cruz that said Carson is dropping out but supporters which should have pulled it back. That being WHO said all his votes went to Cruz. The news media because they are scared to death to have Cruz as the POTUS because all the work to overthrow this country will have gone to waste. The news media is holding back on Trump until God forbid he wins the Republican nomination. Then they will tear him apart as Clinton or the communist will be elected. In closing anyone that says Ben Carson who is a Christian looks like a pedophile and you want to vote for that look in your mirror.

    • KY

      Michael,
      Excellent post! I forgot about Cruz walking out on a bunch of Jew haters. Ted Cruz has more Godly boldness in him than any of the candidates!

  • DEAN

    This contest is going to come down to Trump or Cruz. The second stringers like Carson and Kasich will likely drop out of the race after South Carolina and I suspect the establishment Republicans are toast. Bush’s prospects are dim and Marco Rubio will not gain traction with mainstream America. I don’t particularly like Trump or Cruz but when it comes to telling things like they are, Trump is the favorite. Of all the things that threaten the existence of this country, I think immigration is the biggest issue. We are vanishing as a country and Geoffrey talks about Muslims, which are problematic, but the bigger threat is coming from the Roman Catholic invasion that is going on because of the much larger numbers, and I absolutely believe it is being coordinated in Rome to bring this country under the Whore of Babylon. America used to be a right wing conservative Christian nation and it has fallen so far over the past 30 years that now the liberal Jeb Bush is considered right wing.

  • Ron

    If Trump is causing all the normal Politicians both Republican and Democrat, the Liberals, and the Press

    to go into and be in such an uproar about him and where he stands…….

    it just seems to me like Trump actually frightens them so much so that they want to do anything and everything

    to prevent him from being elected it makes me think that even the forces of darkness know that

    he will be an instrument of God to try to get this country back on track one more time and……

    to test the American people to see if they truly want to repent and change their ways or do they……

    want to continue on the track their on and suffer the consequences of their actions.

    Just because Trump may not be born again DOES NOT mean that God doesn’t want him as president.

    Tell me truly… How many Presidents that we have had in the 20th century were born again Christians….

    and how many were secular??? Most have been secular, God decides who is in power of any country including ours!

    1 Samuel 2:1-10 And Hannah prayed, and said, My heart rejoiceth in the LORD, mine horn is exalted in the LORD: my mouth is enlarged over mine enemies; because I rejoice in thy salvation. There is none holy as the LORD: for there is none beside thee: neither is there any rock like our God. Talk no more so exceeding proudly; let not arrogancy come out of your mouth: for the LORD is a God of knowledge, and by him actions are weighed. The bows of the mighty men are broken, and they that stumbled are girded with strength. They that were full have hired out themselves for bread; and they that were hungry ceased: so that the barren hath born seven; and she that hath many children is waxed feeble. The LORD killeth, and maketh alive: he bringeth down to the grave, and bringeth up. The LORD maketh poor, and maketh rich: he bringeth low, and lifteth up. He raiseth up the poor out of the dust, and lifteth up the beggar from the dunghill, to set them among princes, and to make them inherit the throne of glory: for the pillars of the earth are the LORD’S, and he hath set the world upon them. He will keep the feet of his saints, and the wicked shall be silent in darkness; for by strength shall no man prevail. The adversaries of the LORD shall be broken to pieces; out of heaven shall he thunder upon them: the LORD shall judge the ends of the earth; and he shall give strength unto his king, and exalt the horn of his anointed.

    Jeremiah 27:5 I have made the earth, the man and the beast that are upon the ground, by my great power and by my outstretched arm, and have given it unto whom it seemed meet unto me.

    Romans 13:3 For rulers are not a terror to good works, but to the evil. Wilt thou then not be afraid of the power? do that which is good, and thou shalt have praise of the same:

    Proverbs 8:15-16 By me kings reign, and princes decree justice. By me princes rule, and nobles, even all the judges of the earth.

    Daniel 2:37 Thou, O king, art a king of kings: for the God of heaven hath given thee a kingdom, power, and strength, and glory.

    Daniel 4:1-3 Nebuchadnezzar the king, unto all people, nations, and languages, that dwell in all the earth; Peace be multiplied unto you. I thought it good to shew the signs and wonders that the high God hath wrought toward me. How great are his signs! and how mighty are his wonders! his kingdom is an everlasting kingdom, and his dominion is from generation to generation.

    Nebachadrezzer became saved as a result of God making him a king and him taking all the credit by his own power and God made him crazy for 7 years and when God restored him he believed in Him and gave him the Glory.

    • KY

      Ron, why would God put Trump in power to fix things in America if the country has not repented?

      2Ch_7:14 If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.

      I believe you have the cart before the horse unless you are suggesting by electing Trump things will get much worse unless and until America repents of her wickedness. I would like to see a Christian elected instead of a Nebuchadnezzar.

      • Ron

        KY You make a valid point but lets look at a particular Scripture and we can see how this works……

        1 Kings 22:19-22 And he said, Hear thou therefore the word of the LORD: I saw the LORD sitting on his throne, and all the HOST of HEAVEN STANDING BY HIM on his right hand and on his left. And the LORD said, Who Shall PERSUEDE Ahab, that he may go up and fall at Ramothgilead? And one said on this manner, and another said on that manner. And There Came Forth A Spirit, and STOOD BEFORE THE LORD, and said, I Will Persuade Him. And the LORD said unto him, Wherewith? And he said, I will go forth, and I WILL BE A LYING SPIRIT In The Mouth Of All His Prophets. And He said, Thou Shalt Persuade Him, and Prevail Also: Go Forth, and Do So.

        Trump may or may not be saved, but he does have respect for God. So God could allow him to win, but if America doesn’t repent God can use the evil spirits to drive him OR ANYONE for that matter to do what His Pleasure is concerning His Displeasure Of the USA’s Behavior.

        God is in Charge of what happens period, but we as a people can persuade Him to mercy and forbearance if we turn from our evil ways and obey His Laws.
        Even more so by Believing in His Son.

        • Skywatcher

          Ron, that was a really good message! That pretty much summed it all up in a nutshell. God is still on the throne! Thank you, for that!

        • KY

          Ron, I understand the concept, unfortunately in this situation it does not apply in the same way scripture presented it.

          1Ki 22:20 And the LORD said, Who shall persuade Ahab, that he may go up and fall at Ramothgilead? And one said on this manner, and another said on that manner.
          1Ki 22:21 And there came forth a spirit, and stood before the LORD, and said, I will persuade him.
          1Ki 22:22 And the LORD said unto him, Wherewith? And he said, I will go forth, and I will be a lying spirit in the mouth of all his prophets. And he said, Thou shalt persuade him, and prevail also: go forth, and do so.
          1Ki 22:23 Now therefore, behold, the LORD hath put a lying spirit in the mouth of all these thy prophets, and the LORD hath spoken evil concerning thee.

          This would be Donald Trump as a good guy volunteering before God to do the deed. Trump has no clue but Christians do. As a Christian I cannot put Trump in the place of the spirit. Voting for Trump is more like voting for Ahab.

      • Ron

        KY on what I wrote is that God can use any of the evil spirits to do whatever he needs, lying, cheating, etc. to accomplish His Perfect Will.

        • KY

          Ron, I don’t disagree with that statement, but I think God can get his own evil spirit, if he wants one. It is not the place for Christians to second guess God and vote for an evil spirit intentionally. I will vote for the most Godly man that is still left after the primaries. If it is Donald Trump, so be it, but I will not help to propel him to that position by voting for him in the primaries, the unbelievers will do that and if that is God’s will he will be the nominee. A Christian should not vote for an overtly evil candidate. Has it occurred to anyone that God wants to see if Christians will support the most righteous man running for president, even if he is flawed?

    LETTER # 16

    DONALD TRUMP, CHRISTIANITY, AND THE LOVE OF MONEY

    LETTERS FROM
    UNDER THE ALTAR

    “And when he had opened the fifth seal, I saw under the altar the souls of them that were slain for the word of God, and for the testimony which they held:
    “And they cried with a loud voice, saying, How long, O Lord, holy and true, dost thou not judge and avenge our blood on them that dwell on the earth?
    “And white robes were given unto every one of them; and it was said unto them, that they should rest yet for a little season, until their fellowservants also and their brethren, that should be killed as they were, should be fulfilled.” (Revelation 6:9-11)

    CHRIST DRIVING THE MONEY CHANGERS FROM THE TEMPLE

    TRUMP: A MONEY CHANGER
    IN THE TEMPLE OF GOD

    “FOR THE LOVE OF MONEY IS THE ROOT OF ALL EVIL”

    (1 Timothy 6:10)

    “And he made a whip and drove the money changers out of the temple…” (cf. John 2:14-16)

    Christians have sold themselves out to the rich – to people like Donald TRUMP.

    To “old-line” evangelical Christians it would seem biblically evident that no rich man such as Donald TRUMP could ever have any useful function in bringing revival to the church; they would have had no trouble in agreeing with James the apostle when he warned Christians to beware of the rich, “Do not rich men oppress you?” he asked rhetorically. Are they not the ones who “… draw you before the judgment seats (ie., the debt collectors)?” Are they not the ones who “… condemn and kill the just …?” (James 2:6; 5:4-6).

    Sadly, however, that’s no longer the case. The leaders of today’s church have sold themselves out to the rich: they have made “common cause” with them; and what a shameful and odious alliance this is.

    Money has become the opiate of American Christians – a drug that seems to deaden even the most sincere Christian’s sense of “right and wrong.”

    Money is a powerful opiate; a narcotic that unfailingly seems to deaden even the sincerest person’s sense of right and wrong – and, unfortunately, Christians are no exception to this rule. This is precisely what has happened with the leadership of today’s evangelical church; their sense of the plain teaching of the Scriptures regarding money has been deadened by their alliance with the rich – people who care little or nothing for the essentials of the Christian faith and who are governed solely by their lust for money, and their need to control the church and “keep it in bounds.”

    One sees the result of this loathsome bargain everywhere throughout the church – the fawning adulation of the Hunt Brothers at First Baptist Church in Dallas, Texas; the sniveling veneration of the Rockefellers by Cam Townsend, founder of Wycliffe Bible Translators; the cringing deference exhibited by WYAM towards its bevy of rich contributors – the list is endless. And it’s not just at these lofty levels that this disgusting exhibition can be seen, it occurs every week in countless churches throughout the country by pastors who have been reduced to whimpering supplicants at the feet of their rich parishioners. The shame! the disgrace! the dishonor of it all. [Please see our article, “The American Empire: The Corporate / Pentagon / CIA / Missionary Archipelago.”]

    The Word of God speaks of money as “the mammon of unrighteousness” (Luke 16:9) – something which invariably leads away from God. And it goes onto say,

    “… the love of money is the root of ALL evil …” (1 Tim. 6:10)

    What’s that say about Donald Trump, whose ardent love for money is well-known?

    Jesus said: “Do not store up treasure on earth where moth and vermin destroy and where thieves break in and steal; but store up for yourselves treasure in heaven where moth and vermin do not destroy and where thieves do not steal. FOR WHERE YOUR TREASURE IS, THERE WILL YOUR HEART BE ALSO.” (Matthew 6:19-21)

    And in accordance with this saying, Jesus told the rich man who wanted to serve Him:

    “Go sell ALL that you have and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven, and come follow me.” Matthew 19:21)

    The fact of TRUMP’S love for money rips away his mask as a believer in the Lord Jesus Christ.

    Jesus saw money as standing in opposition to the Kingdom of God; to rely on it was antithetical to that kingdom, and He refused to allow His disciples to depend on it:

    “Go your ways: behold, I send you forth as lambs among wolves.
    “Carry neither purse, nor scrip (i.e., money), nor shoes: and salute no man by the way.” (Luke 10:3-4)

    To Jesus, money was a corrupting influence which defiled those who touched it, which contaminated those who depended on it, which perverted those who relied on it, and which polluted those who based their calculations and manner of living on it.

    In the Scriptures, MONEY AND GOD ARE JUSTAPOSED AGAINST EACH OTHER: ONE EITHER SERVES THE GOD OF MONEY OR THE LORD JESUS CHRIST. It’s for this reason that the Bible says:

    “No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve (both) God and mammon (ie., money).” [Mat. 6:19-24]

    “Ye cannot serve (both) God
    and mammon (ie., money)…”

    A rich man trying to enter the Kingdom of God.

    And if any doubt remains as to Christ’s regard for the rich (ie., the TRUMP’S of this world), Jesus said:

    “… IT IS EASIER FOR A CAMEL TO GO THROUGH THE EYE OF A [SEWING] NEEDLE, THAN FOR A RICH MAN [ie., a man like TRUMP] TO ENTER INTO THE KINGDOM OF GOD.” (Matt. 19:24)

    The Bible warns us that –

    “… THEY THAT WILL BE RICH FALL INTO TEMPTATION AND A SNARE, and into many foolish and hurtful lusts, WHICH DROWN MEN IN DESTRUCTION AND PERDITION.” (I Tim. 6:9)

    The rich: drowning in destruction and perdition. [Christian theology defines perdition as a state of eternal punishment and damnation.]

    Nonetheless, it appears that evangelical Christians are choosing as their standard bearer in the election of 2016 a man who not only possesses vast wealth, but brags about it. [Please see our article, “Capitalism and Christianity.”]

    And be clear here, Christians are flocking to Trump because they see in him more than just another Republican candidate like Mitt Romney, John McCain or Bob Dole, but someone who will lead the nation back to “Christ and the church.” TRUMP – A rich man who boasts openly about his love of money (ie., mammon) leading the nation back to God? Hardly!!! – or do you doubt Jesus when he said, “You cannot serve both God and money. (Mat. 6:19-24) [Please our article, “The Rich Have Seized Control of the Church.”]

    And it’s not just the Bible that warns us about the character of those who possess great wealth. Honoré de Balzac wrote:

    “Behind every great fortune is a great crime.”

    Then there is Professor C. Wright Mills of Columbia University who writes concerning people like TRUMP:

    “The pursuit of the moneyed-life is … (the rich’s) commanding value, in relation to which the influence of other values has declined, so … (that they have) easily become morally ruthless in its pursuit …”

    “(They have) narrowed the meaning of ‘success’ to big money and in these terms condemn failure as the chief vice, raising money to the plane of absolute value.”

    The utter blindness of Christians insofar as the danger of wealth and – ipso facto – the TRUMP phenomenon is concerned is breath-taking; the fact that TRUMP exults in his wealth; the fact that he luxuriates in it; the fact that the pursuit of wealth has defined him as a person goes right past them. [Please see our article, “The Elites, Money and the End of Days.”]

    Christians are blind to verses like John 5:19:

    “Ye adulterers and adulteresses [ie., to those to whom they are supposedly betrothed], know ye not that the friendship of the world is enmity with God? whosoever therefore will be a friend of the world is the enemy of God.” (John 5:19)

    Secularists like Jonathon Merritt are astonished at the blindness of Christians to their own Scriptures, and to the TRUMP phenomenon which stands in juxtaposition to them; he writes in the Atlantic Magazine:

    “Donald TRUMP is immodest, arrogant, foul-mouthed, money-obsessed, thrice-married, and until recently, pro-choice. By conventional standards, evangelical Christians should despise him. Yet somehow, the Manhattan billionaire has attracted their support.

    “According to the most recent polls, TRUMP is one of the top picks for president among evangelical Christians. One Washington Post poll even had him as the group’s favorite by a margin of six points. His first major rally in the Bible-Belt fortress town of Mobile, Alabama, drew an estimated 18,000 attendees. And on September 28, prominent televangelist Paula White will reportedly lead a delegation of evangelical leaders to meet with the mogul in Trump Tower. [See our “13th Letter from under the Altar.”]

    “‘Why do they love me’? TRUMP replied when asked about the trend. ‘You’ll have to ask them. But they do. They do love me’.”

    Christians have been bamboozled by TRUMP – and because of their support, in less than a year now, he will be the “KING OF BABYLON” and the “end of the age” will begin with the Christian community in tow. God help us all for allowing this to occur!! [Please see Chapter XI of the New Antipas Papers, “AntiChrist: King of Babylon.”]

    • KY

      Carol, I believe you said it all. Great post!

    • Ron

      Carol How come you left out Joel Osteen, Rick warren?

  • Trump a money changer? Trump the King of Babylon and then the bringing the end of the age with him? The Christian community following him?
    SO REALLY who do you Trump is?
    Are you a socialist or communist?

    • KY

      Watcher, She is right. Me thinks you protest too much.

      • KY, No I am not protesting too much. I am wanting people to think for themselves. I do not support anyone at this point for president.

        The poster seems to be at such libel about people and money that I think they are socialist. It is a rampant ideology in our culture as being good. Capitalism is not the perfect system but it sure does not have the dreadful issues we know of as the socialist regimes have adopted only to bring communism along.

        I have NO use for TV evangelists that take peoples money either and live unto themselves in abundance.
        I question for other’s to question how Trump will be KING of Babylon and bring in the end of the age. This poster believes US is Babylon and Christians it’s willing subjects.

        The truth is God does have His remnant and we are not left alone here in the US or anywhere else in the world. I am not of the kingdom dominants theory either. Christ will return and set His kingdom after the time of Jacob’s trouble.

        • KY

          Watcher, That was not the premise of her entire post. Much of it was quite Biblical but some of it was figurative. I thought she covered the bases quite well as to why we should not elect Donald Trump. If for no other reason, he represents what is wrong with America, SIN and the love of money, and he is very proud of how good he has become at committing/acquiring it! For Christians to endorse this “man of sin”, (NO, not that man of sin.) is pathetic.

          2Co_6:14 Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness?

          1Th_5:5 Ye are all the children of light, and the children of the day: we are not of the night, nor of darkness.

    It’s bad enough that he operates strip clubs and gambling casinos but he is promising the LGBT community that he would see their rights expand under him as president. I don’t think that God would approve. Here is a good article about Trump:

  • paul rosplock

    I look at it this way I will vote for who ever the republican nominee is. I look at it this way if Donald Trump or Hillary Clinton , Bernie Sanders gets elected it just shows how far spiritually and morally deficient America has become. Have never voted for a democrat and never will so If Trump is the one then he is the one.But not who I wanted. I wanted Bobby Jindal .I believe that Gods plan is going through and we as a nation get what we deserve. But It does puzzle me how Christians can’t see what Trump is. He will build on Obama not remove what he has done. He talks like he is speaking to 2yr olds in 4 word sentences and people are falling for it not looking who he is same goes for Clinton and Sanders. Like I said the president we pick represents the morality of the country and we are in the toilet.Only great thing is the closer it gets to the return of our lord Jesus Christ ! As a Country its going to get bad.

    • KY

      I couldn’t agree more!

  • Char

    Paul Rosplock, you are absolutely right. I don’t know what all the hullabaloo is all about. Someone is going to be nominated, so that’s who we vote for on the Republican side. It’s kinda scary for what is coming, but the Lord says “be not anxious for anything” and so we will wait and see. He is going to separate the sheep from the goats real soon. God Bless!

  • Ben

    Glad to see all of these responses. While I am not pro-DT, I respect Geoff’s choice. Electing a president is not such a big issue in the secular world, but as Christians we have a weightier responsibility as to who we endorse. It’s good of Geoffrey to speak up about his choice, as we may go over issues on both sides that are relevant to us. Let everyone choose according to his conscience. I trust in God. Whoever will come to power will be there cuz God wills it.
    As to some of the arguments here… I’m reminded of when I got married. Dated several Christians, but were Christian in name only. I was very disappointed. Then I fell in love with a non-Christian. My friends all advised me against it, but I kept praying to God, praying that my would-be spouse could be born again. My thinking was that all those who claimed to be Christian were worse than this nonbeliever. Only after getting married and having a child do I realize that it’s truly difficult to ally oneself with a nonbeliever. At least with Christians you can call them out, remind them of their allegiance to the Lord… Still, God gives us free will. He will make good come out of bad. As long as we keep faith in Him, even if we have erred in our choice, we should not fear for He will never leave us nor forsake us.

  • Skywatcher

    Ben, thank you so much for that wisdom and those insights into your personal life. I will be praying that your bride will come to know Christ as her personal Savior and Lord! Continue to let your light shine! Mt. 5: 16. Get back into reading your Bible (if you haven’t already), and let her see you doing it. Pray together, if she will. Share God’s love to your child in stories of His greatness and His plan for that little one’s life!

    God bless you!

  • Denny

    Dr. Bob Jones Sr. said You should never do wrong to have an opportunity to do right. Anthony Scalia just died. Do you think God may have had a hand in that? Whether you realize it or not, this country is under judgment. I wonder what our founding fathers would think of Donald Trump. Do you think any of them would endorse him. The bible that you claim to endorse was kicked out of the schools in 1963, but hold on; it was kicked out of the seminaries before that and replaced with the ASV. Do you really think DT has a snowball’s chance in hell in bringing this nation back to ‘greatness’? There’s a reason why this country is not mentioned in the bible regarding end time prophecies. We are in the gleaning stages and our job as Christians is to win as many people as we can to Christ before the rapture occurs. No book, no revival. King Josiah found The Book. America has lost The Book.

  • MIchael

    Thank you Geoff for your article here. I’ve been praying that God would have mercy on this country and put the right man in office for this time in history. I’ve prayed that God would put the man who will defend my liberties. I’ve had more peace as time goes on with voting for Donald Trump, not because I think he’s the perfect candidate, but because I truly think that he tells the truth counting that he says the unpopular things knowing that they are unpopular before he says them and that he doesn’t apologize for it afterwards when he finds out how much backlash comes. Sure he’s prideful and arrogant and I don’t like either of those things. But I believe him when he says we have to keep ISIS from chopping Christians heads off. I appreciate and believe him when he says that he’d like to ban all Muslims which is the only way to keep this country safe. I also believe that if enough Christians in this country are praying for mercy then God will show mercy in leadership positions. He may not supply the perfect candidates but he might show some mercy while yet still punishing the country.

    I’m very disappointed to see so many people so outraged by this post.

    The Old Testament was written for our ensample according to scripture and when I read the Book of Nehemiah that the King allowed the Jews to build Jerusalem I think of this as an example of America. It seems the best we can hope for now is a leader who will allow us to preach the gospel and preserve our freedom to do it. It has been argued that this nation was never a Christian nation and maybe in part they were correct but not completely. The scriptures played a pivotal role in the foundation of many laws and even our constitution. Many states, if I’m not mistaken, required people to be Christians in order to serve in a position of governmental leadership. It sounds like a Christian nation to me, however it was never expressly stated that this would be the belief of the country as a whole which would make it then a theocracy. If you take the position that we’ve had non-believers as leaders before that have done good for our country and preserved our freedoms then it looks like things haven’t changed that much except that the level of wickedness is ever increasing exponentially. I consider these things and remember that though Donald Trump may not be a Christian, he tells the truth and remember that Ronald Regan was a liberal at one point. If Donald is telling the truth he said during the most resent debate that he has become “older and wiser.” If you take the man at his word, he cares about the country, he cares about freedom, and he is a conservative who is changing his opinions on things like planned parenthood. All of these things are good for us as believers because we need someone who won’t just talk about preserving our freedom, we need someone who will preserve our freedom. For the purpose, first and foremost, of preaching the gospel freely.

  • Michael

    Thanks for bringing this up Geoff I’d like to encourage you.

    I’m disappointed to hear how negative some folks are being about this.

    I’ve prayed that the Lord would give us the candidate that we need and not the one that we think is right. I have more peace as time goes on voting for Donald Trump because he tells the truth. He, though being arrogant and prideful, has said some very unpopular things knowing that they are unpopular and not apologizing when he found out how much backlash there was. I would say you could use this as a test to see if someone is honest.

    When I think about the book of Nehemiah and when the King allowed him to build Jerusalem, knowing that America isn’t in captivity but considering that our elected officials may not always be believers, I can kind of relate it to this situation. Trump seems to be trustworthy and he says he’ll protect our freedoms. We as believers need to be politically concerned first and foremost about the freedom to preach the gospel.

    I do also personally hope that someone would show him how to be saved and that Ted Cruz’s bad example wouldn’t put a stumbling block in his path.

  • Michael

    I guess I accidently made two posts. I thought the first one didn’t go through. Anyway here is some redundancy then.

    Thanks again Goeff for your insight.

  • karen

    Yes, Michael, I so agree. We have to look at the candidate’s message and willingness to stand strong despite the blow back. Donald Trump is a very strong and successful man. His message is to protect Americans from the onslaught of attacks we’ve been lambasted with. We can find something wrong with every candidate and every human being for that matter. Now is not the time to give up just because we find something displeasing to us and throw all their good to the side and say I’m not voting or I might as well vote back in that which we have now. This man is the polar opposite of the people in the administration we’ve been dealing with for the last 7 years. To me, that says a lot. He’s got the guts to call it out and offer hard core changes. Whoever he is or isn’t, I love what he stands for and that is probably as good as it’s going to get.

    I am voting Democrat, and I can tell you I don’t dislike Trump simply because he presents a supposed threat to the liberals. I dislike Trump because he is hateful, prejudice, and wants to take rights away from certain groups in America. If he truly went by the Constitution, all people would have the rights and freedoms granted to them in the Bill of Rights, not just some.

  • emery richards

    There IS NO WAY someone who believes the ENTIRE INSPIRED WORD OF GOD would EVER vote or be involved in politics or war, EVER FOR ANY REASON. The scriptures CLEARLY TEACH US TO BE NO PART OF THE WORLD OR IT’S DESIRES. Politics ARE the machinations OF SATAN’S WORLD. It’s ruled by him still, until the final battle of Armageddon. ALL governments, religions, politics, desires, peer pressure, entertainment, and everything else are TOTALLY INFLUENCED BY SATAN, with NO exceptions at all. So to say one believes the Bible, yet still votes, is a LIE. If you vote, you DON’T BELIEVE GOD’S WORD. The two ARE NOT COMPATIBLE. By disobeying God, you become NOT HIS FRIEND.

    • Skywatcher

      emery richards, you have spoken volumes in that brief paragraph. However, I’m willing to bet that when the feathers hit the fan and your job is gone, you’ll be one of the first expecting hand-outs from the government…if you have the chance to do so or haven’t done so to date!

      Something also tells me that you shop at a supermarket…is that not in the world? You get your drugs from a drug store and you use the services of a funeral director from time to time; are they not a part of the world’s system? Something also tells me you pay into Income Tax and don’t mind getting money back from time to time…Oh my! You’re a dirty sinner like the rest of us, with the exception of those of us who’ve had our filthy garments/hearts washed by the precious blood of the Lamb of God, Jesus Christ!

      You see, Emery and all, we are in the world, but we are NOT OF the world, Jn. 15: 19; 17: 16. Our citizenship is in Heaven, as Eph. 2: 19 states, “Now therefore ye are no more strangers and foreigners, but fellowcitizens with the saints, and of the household of God…”

      This world is NOT my home, I’m just a’passin’ through!

      We have the right and expectancy from God to assist in the governance of our affairs. There were many times in the O.T. when Jehovah God called His people to war. According to what you said below, Jehovah God led His people into sin. I DON’T THINK SO!

      You said, “ALL governments, religions, politics, desires, peer pressure, entertainment, and everything else are TOTALLY INFLUENCED BY SATAN, with NO exceptions at all.”

      God raised up kings and judges throughout the O.T. history, and is still doing so today! We may not always like His selections, but He has His good reasons for doing so! And, He allows us to be a part of the process!

      I and others on here are glad to hear your confession, Emery! It’s about time you ‘fessed up, and admitted that your god is Satan, and NOT the Jehovah of the Holy Bible, Who is “the Alpha and Omega, the Beginning and the end”, Rev. 1: 8; 22: 13 (KJV). If He really is God, then you’re in hot water with Him because you just attributed His works of ages past to Satan!

      If you’ve ever engaged in sex, how did it make you feel to know that you were satisfying the fleshly “DESIRES” that Satan gave you, “with NO exceptions at all?! That’s what you just stated!

      Where are the Scriptures to substantiate your J.W. position? Hmmm…

      • Emery Richards

        Skywatcher;
        Being no part of the world, and using parts of the world ate TWO COMPLETELY DIFFERENT THINGS. Being part of the world is taking advantage of the desires of the world, wanting what the world wants, doing what the world does, believing what the world believes. The “world”, by the way, IS NOT THE EARTH, nor the infrastructure of society, but it is society itself. The PEOPLE. Anyway, it is being part of government, greed, politics, voting, showing off your new car, new house, new clothes, new job, so on and so forth. It is NOT USING the world. We must use money to eat, have a roof over our heads, buy gas, and everything else. Buying is not being part of the infrastructure that produces these things. You seem to have COMPLETELY misunderstood Jesus’ teachings altogether.

        Now you said “our citizenship is in heaven”. Only true IF you are one of the 144,000. Otherwise, NO. Our citizenship is in the New Earth, AFTER Armageddon. The New System of things ruled by the Kingdom, and not, as it is now, ruled by Satan.

        You said that God chooses kings and judges today. That is definately not true. God does not choose them, but they stand in their relative positions because God ALLOWS it. He DOESN’T CHOOSE THEM. When God “raised up kings and judges”, those Kings were because Israel REJECTED God as King, and whined that they wanted a human king. God acquiesced. He raised judges up because the Law Covenant was still in effect then. GOD’S law, not man’s. God does not raise up judges for MAN’S law, ever.

        You said I confessed to something, which I definately DID NOT. You’re lying there, and lying contradicts God’s commands to us. My God, Jehovah God, is definately not His opposer, Satan. For you to say that makes you His enemy. You oppose Him in doing so. Not a good thing. You claim I attributed works of the ages to Satan. I attributed what Satan did to Satan, what God did to God. YOU are doing otherwise by making lying claims as you just did. Not very intelligent on your part at all. Again, you took something out of context, which is what false religionists like you ALWAYS do. Never did I say that copulating to reproduce was a sin, and you know that quite well, unless you have a brain lesion or something. You’re displaying extremely unintelligent behavior. You may want to consider having it looked at pretty soon. These things increase pretty quickly, and end in death.

        You ask where the scriptures are to substantiate God’s position (which is my position). Have you ever heard of the inspired word of God? It’s known as the Bible. You can find it there. If you don’t know what it is, search Google, it will help.

        • KY

          Emery Richards,
          I have a few questions if you don’t mine.

          If the organization did not actually prophesy the end in 1925 and 1975, then how come so many Witnesses left the faith immediately afterwards? (“They lost roughly three-quarters of the movement between 1925 and 1928, then suffered huge losses after 1975, when the end didn’t come as they had implied over and over again,” said Jim Penton, an ex-Witness who writes entries on Jehovah’s Witnesses for the Encyclopedia Americana.)
          If the Watchtower organization rejects others calling them “inspired” yet the Watchtower organization does call themselves “God’s Spirit-directed Prophet” what is the difference? Is there such a thing as an “uninspired prophet”? See Organization claims inspiration
          Has the Society ever taught anything scripturally incorrect? See Prophecy Blunders of the Organization
          Might the Society be teaching anything scripturally incorrect now?
          Since the Organization has received “new light” regarding the 1914 generation, and completely changed their view on this, does this mean that all the former Jehovah’s witnesses who were disfellowshipped years ago for the same view the organization is now teaching will automatically be accepted into fellowship again? Were these Ex-Jw’s in fact disfellowshipped for truth and knew things that the governing body did not? See Jw’s were disfellowshipped for rejecting generation doctrine
          Can Jehovah’s Witnesses hold and discuss openly with other Jehovah’s Witnesses opinions that differ from orthodox Watch Tower doctrine?
          Can individuals read & understand the Bible alone, or do they need an organization and it’s publications to do so? Click here find the answer!
          How do you prove from the Bible that 1935 was the year for the selection to heaven stopped due to being filled? What is the difference between a Catholic appealing to “what the organization tells him” about December 25 being the date of Jesus’ birthday and a Jw’ appealing to “what the organization tells him” about the date 1935? Is it not hypocritical when you chide the “poor deluded Catholic” that his faith cannot find a Bible passage to support it, when the same goes for you and 1935?
          How do you know that there were any vacancies, if any, in the 144,000 class if Jesus offered this to first century Christians? How can the organization know the exact number of vacancies today without any records from the first century?
          Why are you called, “Jehovah’s Witnesses” and not “Christians”? Since Jehovah’s Witnesses appeal to Isa 43:12; 44:8 for scriptural support that they should be called, “Jehovah’s Witnesses” then what was the “new name” prophesied in Isa 62:2? Can’t be “Jehovah’s Witnesses”, for God already used it 20 chapters earlier. Could the new name be “Christian” after our savior “Christ”?
          Why would the name God gave to His people not be “Christians” since Acts 11:26 says, “The disciples were first called Christians in Antioch”? Why is the name “Jehovah’s Witness” found nowhere in the New Testament, if that is God’s divine name for His people under the new covenant? Why would God wait almost 2000 years to suddenly start using the name “Jehovah’s Witness”. Does this mean that first century Christians were not known as Jehovah’s Witnesses”?
          If the name Jehovah is so important, then why is it never used in the entire Greek New Testament? If men edited out the name of God, “YHWH” when they copied the New Testament, as only the Watchtower organization claims, then how can we have any confidence in any of the New Testament? Should we discard the New Testament or the Watchtower organization as unreliable?
          If the name “Jehovah” is so important, then why does Acts 4:12 say, “There is salvation in no one else; for there is no other name [v10 Jesus Christ] under heaven that has been given among men, by which we must be saved”? Would this not have been the logical place for God to have used the name “YHWH”?
          What is the correct spelling of God’s proper name “Yahweh” or “Jehovah”? If Jehovah’s Witnesses maintain that “Yahweh” is more proper, why do they misspell it “Jehovah”? If the name of God is so important, then should you not only pronounce it correctly, but spell it correctly too? Is not spelling more important than pronunciation?
          Since the Jehovah’s Witness organization currently rejects most of the teachings of its founder Charles Taze Russell (who was president of the organization from 1879-1916), and since they also reject “Judge” Joseph Franklin Rutherford, who succeeded Russell as president from 1916 – 1942, how can we be sure that in 25 more years, Jehovah’s Witnesses won’t also reject the current president, Milton G. Henschel (1992 – present), as they did Russell and Rutherford?
          What kind of confidence can anyone have in an organization that rejected its founder and first two presidents for the first 63 years of its existence? This represents about 53% of the time they have existed!
          Since the Watchtower organization claims “apostolic succession” who was it that “passed the torch of God’s Spirit” to C. T. Russel when he founded the organization? What was the name of this individual?
          In the NWT, every time the Greek word “proskuneo” is used in reference to God, it is translated as “worship” (Rev 5:14, 7:11, 11:16, 19:4, Jn 4:20, etc.). Every time “proskuneo” is used in reference to Jesus, it is translated as “obeisance” (Mt 14:33, 28:9, 28:17, Lk 24:52, Heb 1:6, etc.), even though it is the same word in the Greek (see Gr-Engl Interlinear). Especially compare the Greek word “prosekunhsan” used with reference to God in Rev 5:14, 7:11, 11:16, and 19:4 and used with reference to Christ in Mt 14:33, 28:9, and 28:17. What is the reason for this inconsistency? If the NWT was consistent in translating “proskuneo” as “worship”, how would the verses above referring to Christ read?
          The NWT translates the Greek word “kyrios” as “Jehovah” more than 25 times in the New Testament (Mt 3:3, Lk 2:9, Jn 1:23, Acts 21:14, Rom 12:19, Col 1:10, 1Thess 5:2, 1Pet 1:25, Rev 4:8, etc.). Why is the word “Jehovah” translated when it does not appear in the Greek text? Why is the NWT not consistent in translating kyrios (kurion) as “Jehovah” in Rom 10:9, 1Cor 12:3, Phil 2:11, 2Thess 2:1, and Rev 22:21 (see Gr-Engl Interlinear)?
          To what was Jesus referring to by the term “this temple” in Jn 2:18- 19? See Jn 2:21.

            KY, that is an excellent expose! You put a lot of time and effort into that, as can be clearly seen. I’ve dealt with this cat at length in the past too. Something else the J.W.’s do not know is that their NWT is another of the sleezy per-versions that originated from the CORRUPT Alexandrian Texts. Texts that they Early Church fathers denounced as “heresy”! Sola Scriptura had a great message on that a day or two ago!

            Thanks again, and God bless you, as you labor for Him!

            Skywatcher;
            Your post quoted below:
            “KY, that is an excellent expose! You put a lot of time and effort into that, as can be clearly seen. I’ve dealt with this cat at length in the past too.

            It’s not an “expose'”, it’s QUESTIONS. You twist things a lot for some reason, probably because you’re part of a false counterfeit copy of the ORIGINAL CHRISTIANITY known as sects of Christendom. Just a guess.
            The JW’s know what they know, and you DON’T know what they know. YOU ONLY GUESS, incorrectly all the time. The NWT was translated from ALL EXISTING ORIGINAL TEXTS, not just these “Alexandrian texts” you speak of, whatever they are. You’re NOT very specific. You say the “early church fathers”, all of whom are heretics and NOT God’s servants, created and worked with false Christianity. Nothing they say is valid or true. You post a lot of things that come ONLY from false copies of Christianity, and NOT from honest, actual, accurate research and study. The ONLY source of accurate honest research is GOD’S INSPIRED WORD, NOT what men write or wrote. Church fathers. That’s a laugh. The ONLY APPROVED WORSHIP of God is CHRISTIANITY as taught by His SON, Jesus, the messiah of God. Sects of Christendom are NOT THE ORIGINAL CHRISTIANITY. They only lyingly CLAIM to be. If they were truthful and honest, they would adhere ONLY TO THE ORIGINAL CHRISTIANITY. The copies came to be to CHANGE THE ORIGINAL to match what MEN wanted, NOT what GOD wanted. God warned us through His word that this would happen, and it is happening, and has since Jesus was MURDERED over money by apostate Israel. They are still apostate, and ALL OF CHRISTENDOM IS APOSTATE. But you believe apostates instead of believing GOD. That makes YOU apostate also. You think that anyone who is NOT APOSTATE is doing wrong, when the reverse is true. Apostacy is WRONG and leads to a judgement of DEATH, since the ONLY PENALTY FOR SIN IS DEATH. Not some fantasy of hellfire that doesn’t exist. Hell, in God’s word, means COMMON GRAVE OF MANKIND, not a fiery place of eternal torment. That belief is a transplant from PAGAN BABYLON’S RELIGIONS. You believe those pagan beliefs for reasons only you know. That is essentially suicide, self murder. You have your own blood on your own hands, and God wants that blood back. When you die, you stay that way. Dead forever, with NO resurrection. It’s known as Gehenna, the second death, and total destruction in the scriptures, and you ask for it with every post of yours. Again, for reasons only you know. It’s your choice however, since God gave us that choice when He instituted the New Covenant with the 144,000, the night before Jesus’ death. Before that, we were commanded UNDER THE LAW COVENANT, but thankfully, that was terminated when Israel BROKE THE COVENANT HUNDREDS OF TIMES, ending with them murdering the Christ. You can change that judgement of death you are under, IF you repent and pray to God, in Jesus’ name, for forgiveness, and STOP being apostate.

        • Emery Richards

          Ky;
          To begin with, I don’t mind being asked questions, if they are asked honestly, and not in the mindset of deriding, denegrating, or attacking. It doesn’t appear that you have that in mind.

          Initially, yes, many have left the one true faith, as taught by Jesus, which God’s witnesses are. They have left it since Jesus taught it. The only reason that I can think of, is because they didn’t actually and honestly believe in Jesus’ teachings. The scriptures speak of a clarifying. In other words, those who are not honestly desirous of worshiping God in the manner in which He approves of, in other words, the Christianity as taught in the first century, by His only begotten son, Jesus the Christ (messiah), would leave the faith. They would succumb to the lies of Christendom’s sects, false translations of God’s word (like the KJV), and the lies of the world, and turn their backs on God, becoming apostates to God’s teachings. It’s prophecied, so it’s to be expected.

          And now, as for the questions you ask, I understand your curiosity, but it is really of no importance. It is God to whom we must adhere and whom we must obey. His Earthly witnesses are not prophets, but the remnant of the 144,000 (the only ones to go to heaven) are all involved in the Watchtower society. The society is not the one true faith, it’s a society of those who preach the one true faith. Just like the PGA is not the golfers who are members, it’s a society of those who are the golfers. Our beliefs are ONLY GOD’S INSPIRED WORD. Nothing we believe comes from man, the organization, or anywhere else, it comes ONLY from God Himself. What Jesus taught came DIRECTLY from God, since God SENT him to teach these things. So Jesus’ teachings are God’s teachings. They are of one mind, meaning they believe and teach the same things.

          Now you posted some pretty strange questions, like heaven being filled and it being filled in 1935. I don’t know where you get your information, but you get it from liars apparently. There exist THOUSANDS of web sites and entries in various publications that are not accurate. No witness for God EVER would tell anyone that anyone goes to heaven, because God’s word SAYS WE DO NOT GO TO HEAVEN, OR TO HELL. His word also teaches that we DO NOT HAVE AN IMMORTAL SOUL that is a separate part of us. His word says we ARE a living soul, not that we HAVE a soul. We die, the soul is dead. Nothing survives death, when we die our thoughts die. AND His word says nothing about a hell of fire and torment, as that’s a fiction devised by false religion, the sects of Christendom, and pagan Babylonish religions. So no, no one from the society ever said anything about heaven being filled up, since that’s totally impossible. Flesh can’t enter heaven, we have no soul to go there, and the 144,000 must be TRANSFORMED INTO SPIRIT BEINGS, just like angels, God, and Jesus are spirit beings. The 144,000 could not go to heaven otherwise. When we die, we are NOT transformed into spirit beings. God ONLY chose 144,000 to rule with Jesus. Even if we had an immortal soul (which is ONLY a PAGAN belief), and trillions upon trillions went to heaven, it would not be possible to fill it. Not possible. So either way, you got bad information.

          As for the remnant being spirit inspired, yes, they are. They don’t have direct face to face conversations with God, but God lets them know His thoughts in other ways, as He ALWAYS has to His servants, since the beginning of man’s existence.

          You asked things about “doctrine”. The only doctrine, is that which God gave us through His word. JW’s have no doctrine of their own. Again you have bad information. I suggest going directly to them. In person when they visit your front door, or go to a Kingdom hall (which is not a church, but a meeting hall), or go to their web site. JW.org. Or none of the above. Your choice. It’s best for you to find the answers yourself, but going to sites that disparage them likely won’t tell the truth.

          You asked about God’s personal name. ALL EVIDENCE points to Jehovah. No one actually knows exactly what it is, but the scriptures support the name Jehovah, since Israel’s apostate superstitions prevented them from continuing to use His name. It was thus lost. We will know soon though, since we are in the END of the end times, and the final battle happens pretty soon. Jehovah says He will prevent His servants from being killed in the final battle. The 144,000 will already be with Jesus, in heaven, to rule Earth, and those who associated with the 144,000’s remnant on Earth, will survive. The 144,000 are the little flock, or little crowd, and the supporters and associates of them are the great flock, or great crowd that no man was able to number. They will be on Earth helping to transform Earth back into the paradise God initially intended for it, and to teach those being resurrected to that paradise Earth, the new scrolls God said He will give us, after the final battle. Every detail of this is in Revelation, the last book of the Bible. Religions don’t teach it, or anything else, for that matter, in the Bible. They pick and choose scriptures. They don’t teach the Bible as a whole.

          You asked about the temples mentioned in John 2. He spoke of the physical temple being built in 46 years. He also spoke, metaphorically (figure of speech) about his body. He said it would be torn down, and in 3 days he would be raised up. He would be murdered, and in 3 days, resurrected. That’s what happened.

          I cannot address all of you questions, but you can. I gave you ways to do so, and I also said it’s really not important to do so. It is God, and His word that is important, not the details of imperfect men and what they do. No one is perfect, only Adam and Jesus were, and they’re not here. Many make mistakes because we’re human, but after the final battle (armageddon) and judgement day (first 1000 years after Armageddon), then mankind WILL be perfect in every way, and will live forever in a paradise EARTH. that’s what we preach. We try to lead others to God and His word. Nothing more, nothing less. We do exactly what GOD COMMANDED all Christians to do, but we are the ONLY ONES DOING IT. Many sects PRETEND to do it, but they’re just making a false show of it. Their hearts are not in it.

          I sincerely hope my post was at least of SOME help to you, and I hope you sincerely and honestly want to seek God, because if you DO honestly seek Him, you WILL FIND HIM, since He is not far off from us.

          • KY

            Emery Richards,
            You said, “And now, as for the questions you ask, I understand your curiosity, but it is really of no importance.”

            I really think these questions are important. I am disappointed you declined to answer them because I truly would like to see you give a detailed scriptural reference to back up your beliefs. As you know, many people accuse the JWs of being a cult, so it is important to me that you have scriptural authority for your beliefs. Will you not give me detailed answers?

          • Skywatcher

            Emery, I believe your Paradise kingdom is a “metaphor” too! What will it be two months from now, when the “Society” changes it again? I refuse to answer any of your questions or concerns because I’ve been there already with you. Being the crispy coward that you are, you don’t even DARE to quote one reference from your “bible” because it will be quickly found to be in error by many on this site! Let’s start with John 1: 1:

            The KJV states, “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word WAS God.” (emphasis mine)

            Your modern mess says, “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was A god.”

            That implies Christ is one of MANY gods! That’s heresy my crispy critter! That puts you and your ilk on the same page with the Muslims who first started out with 360 gods! Finally confusion set in, and their clerics chose one, hoping it would be the right one, but he isn’t! His name is “I AM”, the great I AM”!

            By the way…you lie with a forked tongue! Your NWT DID NOT come from the “ORIGINAL MANUSCRIPTS” as you’ve said! They are no longer in existence, and haven’t been since LONG before Mr. Russell appeared on the scene and started this cult!

            While you’re roasting on the spit, I’m going to be sitting at the table of the Marriage Supper of the Lamb! It’s your choice! Examine the evidence that condemns your organization or keep quiet! I wondered how long before you’d be poking your nose into another one of Geoffrey’s postings! You sure do like to take a beating,and don’t be fooled…you’re not being persecuted for Jesus as your “organization” teaches! You’re being called out as a liar, a heretic, and a deceived person, who DARE NOT look upon another… that being the REAL Word of God…KJV! I’ve got your number! I’ve got plenty of info on your organization that would make anybody who hasn’t been seriously brainwashed by such to run away in fear and trepidation! Praying that the Lord doesn’t come back before they have a chance to confess their sins and to repent!

          • emery richards

            Ky;
            You are asking me to quote the entire Bible. I can give you links to one, I can email a compressed text of one, but to post the whole thing here is not possible. You want “a detailed scriptural reference to back up your beliefs”. Back up my beliefs? Back them up? Beliefs need no backing up as you say. But my beliefs are the ENTIRE INSPIRED WORD OF GOD. What I believe cannot be “backed up” with a scripture and a scripture there, it takes ALL OF THEM. People believing whatever they want to believe is of no concern to me, and shouldn’t be to you either. They believe what they want to believe, and nothing can change that but them. Claiming that Jesus started a cult is just weird and suicidal. He did NOT start a cult, and His Father didn’t send him to start one either. Again, WEIRD. The original Christianity, the “one true faith”, is definately NOT A CULT. It is the ONLY form of worship of God, that God approves of. The copies, the sects of Christendom, are NOT approved of by God, and most, like the Catholic Church, fit almost completely, the description given in a dictionary of a cult. God’s Christianity doesn’t fit any of that description, nor does His inspired word. Detailed answers? There are 60 books in the Bible, and THEY are the detailed answers. It seems you want me to TEACH you God’s word on a blog site. I won’t do that, and neither would anyone else. It’s public, and it would take YEARS to do it. I DID answer MANY of your questions, just not all of them. You asked too many at one time for that, but as I said previously, I gave you the resources to answer ALL of your questions, but you are ignoring that. You seem to want ME to do YOUR work for you. It’s not my job to do your work. If you want to come by the house for an hour or two each week, I can and will teach you what the Bible teaches, and we can accomplish that in a year or two, maybe less if you’re a good student. I have students that have finished in 6 months, and students that aren’t half way through in two years.. I have students that quit half way through because to them, what their friends and family think is WAY more important to them, than what God thinks. Oh well, their decision, and their mistake.

            A quote from you:
            “Emery, I believe your Paradise kingdom is a “metaphor” too! What will it be two months from now, when the “Society” changes it again?

            My paradise Kingdom? No, it’s not mine, it’s GOD’S. And in the scriptures, it’s not a metaphor, it’s literal. The society cannot change God’s position on things. I don’t ask you questions, other than why you believe lies. Coward? No, it’s you who display extreme cowardice since you REFUSE to study God’s word for truth. Don’t DARE to quote references because the apostates here will think it’s wrong? Not hardly. They all stick to a FALSE TRANSLATION of God’s word, put together by an APOSTATE KING, James, and his apostate parliament. John 1:1 says, translated from the Koine Greek in which it was originally written, translating literally, word for word: In beginning was the Word, and the Word was toward the God, and god was the word. LOWER CASE GOD is NOT God the Father. It says Jesus was a god, NOT GOD the Father. BIG DIFFERENCE. In the NWT it says: In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was a god. LOWER CASE HERE ALSO. The NWT has ACCURATELY literally translated each word. The KJV HAS NOT. It says “1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.” Putting the word was God is not literally translating the ORIGINAL sentence. It CHANGED god to God, which is VERY MISLEADING. But you believe a mistranslated version of the Bible it seems, and DON’T believe God Himself. No matter, it’s YOUR problem, not mine. You choose the lies of men, over the truth of God the Almighty. I am sure this does NOT please Him at all.

          • emery richards

            Skywatcher;
            I am sorry you’re not very bright, but maybe I can help a little. In God’s word, gods are mentioned thousands of times. Many things are called gods, and many gods are mentioned, but only one God (notice the upper case) is mentioned, and that is Jehovah God, God the Almighty. There is BUT ONE. Jesus being a god isn’t referring to one of the fictitious other gods of Egypt, Babylon, Rome, and others, but it means Jesus is just like his Father, in that Jesus is a powerful spirit being. The other gods are fictitious, made up, not real, made of wood, molten metal, stone, etc. Can you begin to see a difference yet? John 1:1 does NOT say Jesus IS GOD, it says God the Almighty, the Father of Jesus, is God. The ONLY GOD that is real, that exists, that is responsible for the creation of Jesus, and EVERYTHING ELSE THAT EXISTS. I know this is a new concept to you, but if you weren’t so DISHONEST, you would already know this. Satan has put a veil on the understanding of the scriptures, so that the light might not shine through. So that he (Satan) can MISLEAD the entire inhabited Earth. It works, as evidenced THROUGH YOU. God said that the ONLY way one can possibly understand His inspired word, was for that veil to be lifted, and the only One who can lift it, is God Himself. He will ONLY do this, if in you He sees an HONEST HEART, as He searches all our hearts constantly, looking for honest hearted ones. It seems, in your case, He sees no such honest hearted desire to know Him, OR His inspired word. You seek it in a falsely translated Bible to boot. So if you don’t change your ways and HONESTLY seek Him, He won’t allow you to understand the scriptures. This is why NO sect of Christendom, being false as they ALL are, has a clue as to what God inspired to be written.

            And YES, the NWT was derived from ALL existing original texts, and many other versions of God’s word, checking for literal accuracy in the original scrolls. Your claim that you know how it was created is nothing short of a bald faced LIE. And your statement that the 5,000 or more EXISTING original texts do not exist, is another bald faced lie. And, they find more EVERY DAY. You also claim to be one of the 144,000. I ASSURE you that you are NOT one of God’s chosen adopted sons. If you were, you would KNOW what God’s word actually says, and you demonstrate DAILY that you have NO CLUE at all.

            NO ONE “roasts on a spit”. No hell of fire and torment exists, no immortal soul exists, and the KJV is NOT the inspired word of God, it’s the word of MEN who CHANGED God’s word to support their false beliefs. If it were accurate, why are there more than 19,000 translation errors, and HUNDREDS of texts added that did not appear originally? Why did a King have more insight than God? He didn’t. Why did he rush it through to beat the Douhay Rheims version by one year? Why did he not use ORIGINAL TEXTS to translate it, and instead used EXISTING TRANSLATIONS to complete it? He did these things to DECEIVE the masses, just as Satan INSPIRED him to do. And YOU believe it as God’s word. What a laugh that is. It shows your lack of honesty and discernment, and your LACK OF LOVE FOR GOD. God COMMANDED us to take in ACCURATE knowledge of Him DAILY. You FLAT REFUSE to do so. You’d rather argue so your friends will pat you on the back and think highly of you, rather than be concerned what God thinks of you. Pitiful.

          Emery, you contradict yourself! It’s there in black and white for all to see. I’ve spent hours debating with you once before. I’ll not cast my pearls before swine again! KY has dealt with your comment quite sufficiently, and I thank him for having done such a commendable job of exposing the lies that your organization promote, and the horrible inconsistencies too!

          How do you know the quota for the 144,000 hasn’t be filled yet? Again, I’ll ask you, are you circumcised? If not, you’re definitely NOT one of the 144,000 in the Paradise kingdom, as they are all Jews, which MUST be circumcised. Furthermore, if you believe you folks are going to be used to repopulate the earth, good luck with that fantasy, as this world and all that is in it is reserved for judgment by fire, 2 Pet. 3: 7 Prepare to be one well-done crispy critter! I think you had better prepare for this anyway because Rev. 20: 15, says that in your present spiritual condition, you’re going TO BE the BBQ dinner that day…

          Cheers!

          • Emery Richards

            Skywatcher;
            I have not contradicted myself ever on this site. You claim KY asking QUESTIONS is an expose’ of something fictitious in your own mind, but it’s just questions. The organization to which I belong has NEVER promoted any lies, EVER, nor have there EVER been any inconsistencies either. It’s you misunderstanding of God’s word that causes you to say these falsehoods.

            How do I know the 144,000 has or has not been met yet? Only God knows. Circumcision means nothing, as the Law Covenant ENDED when the Christ was murdered, or haven’t you read the scriptures yet? Read them, it’s in there for all to see clearly. And no, why would I be one of the 144,000 holy spirit annointed adopted sons of God? Paradise is EARTH, not heaven. That shows me you haven’t read, or don’t understand God’s word. It NEVER says paradise is heaven, but it DOES say Earth will be a paradise where all dead will be resurrected. What I believe, is what God says in His word. It says the supporters and associates of the remnant of the 144,000 will be protected (saved) through Armageddon to teach resurrected ones, and to help transform Earth into the paradise Earth God originally purposed for it. I don’t engage in the god of luck as you do, since God FORBIDS it. That’s pagan idolatry. God’s word is NO FANTASY either, as you claim it to be for some strange reason. You certainly seem to be misled. The judgement by fire you mentioned is a METAPHOR. You also don’t seem to know what the “lake of fire” is. It’s a METAPHOR also, referring to the valley of Hinnom, just outside Jerusalem, where TRASH AND DEAD ANIMALS were burned to ash, to TOTALLY DESTROY THEM. Gehenna, the lake of fire, is a METAPHOR for total destruction with no hope of resurrection to a paradise Earth. There IS NO BBQ. At least not until it warms up, and I fire up the Webber Grill and put corn on the cob and rib eye steaks on it, and no, you’re NOT INVITED. I don’t invite apostates, or anyone as unfriendly as you who posts lies and disparaging remarks about God, His servants, or His word like you do constantly.

    My dear sister, Joanna, thank you, for the kind words. You sure said a lot of truth there!!! I watch what is going on in the UK (I have family there), and I’m just gobsmacked at how quickly things have deteriorated! Yes, I understood clearly what you were saying! It boils down to this: Once the backbone of the society had passed on (WW1 & WW2 Veterans), it was a huge free-for-all for the politically correct idiots, the Feminist Movement, the LGBT, etc. etc. The younger set (my parents and my own generation; I’m 57) had it too good, and it didn’t cost us anything personally. Therefore, we were so far-removed from the precious sacrifices that were made, under the guise of freedom, that we became weak and complacent, no good for much of anything, and too weak and careless to stand up to defend our rights and freedoms as they were being taken away by various lobby groups. We were so dumb-down that we didn’t even see it coming, and if someone told us ahead of time, many laughed at them and called them “conspiracy theorists”. Denial such as this is going to prove mighty costly as the world is being flooded with rape-fugees, with no good intentions! For those who are awake and aware, thanks be to God, it will appear to be too late, but our God is a right-on-time God! It wouldn’t surprise me in the least if this is the year that He snatches us away to be with Him forever, never to be separated from Him again!

    As for the “weirdos” that attack Christians…it’s not what WE have been accustomed to, but we need to toughen our skins, I believe. Christ said we should expect persecution, and I know you do. However, the prosperity clowns, etc. who teach and preach, “name it and claim it” or a prosperity gospel are misleading their flocks and they will fill the bill of Mt. 7: 20-23, unfortunately. They’re following man and not the Man, Christ Jesus. Payday someday.

    I shouldn’t ramble on, as you’ve read my heart many times before. Before I go, there ARE concentration camps set up world-wide and there are thousands of guillotines. It will be a short “vacation” and nothing to fear. Christ said, “Fear not” so many times…I’ve heard it said, “365 times; one for each day of the year.”

    This is all good! Our God is bigger than any of these sock puppets! He has allowed them to rise up for a time such as this, so He can use them to hasten our going Home! I say, bring it on. We may have to shed some blood along the way, but no matter how they choose to end our lives, we’re still going home! If they’re the chariot that hastens me off to Glory, I’m ready, and I look forward to meeting you on that glorious day!

    Joanna, you rhetorically asked, “What will the next decade bring?” I ask you, “Do you have any guarantee you’ll be here to see tomorrow? None of us do, but we’ll keep our eyes upon the Savior and “occupy” until He comes! We’ll keep our noses to the grindstone in labor for Him, winning as many souls for Him as we can! One of those souls is the very last one before the trumpet sounds and we are caught up in the clouds to meet our Lord, and “so shall we ever be with the Lord”! I Thess. 4: 16, 17. “Oh happy day!”

    “Every experience God gives us, every person He puts into our lives is the perfect preparation for the future that only He can see.” Corrie Ten Boom

    God bless you, Joanna, as you glance at your circumstances and STARE at your SAVIOR! One of these days…we will be home at last! I trust you will be encouraged by these words.
    Your brother in Christ,
    Skywatcher

  • Char

    Skywatcher, you and KY have more patience than Job for this heretical JW that keeps arguing with you two. The JWs are as much in the dark as the RCC’s are. I’m sure God has a special crown for you fellas and gals that try so hard to get these stiff necked heretics to see what the Lord has for them. Yes, this is definitely a case of pearls before swine!

    Your last line to him: Prepare to be one well-done crispy critter! I think you had better prepare for this anyway because Rev. 20: 15, says that in your present spiritual condition, you’re going TO BE the BBQ dinner that day…

    That’s a good one! God Bless!

    • Emery Richards

      Charlotte;
      NO witness for God is a heretic, and I haven’t argued even ONCE with anyone here. I’ve corrected them, dispelled their lies, and discussed God’s word, but no, I’ve not argued. No witness for God is in the dark either. God has NO crowns for “you fellas and gals” either. They’re for the 144,000. Calling God’s witnesses, His Earthly servants swine, makes you GOD’S ENEMY, since it’s the same as calling God a swine. No difference according to scripture. It also appears that you haven’t a clue as to what a figure of speech, specific ally a metaphor, actually is and how it’s used. The “lake of fire” IS A METAPHOR for total destruction with no resurrection, NOT ACTUALLY BURNING ANYWHERE. Especially since a hell of fire and torture DOES NOT EXIST. It’s a PAGAN belief injected into Christendom, the counterfeit copies of Christianity as taught by Jesus. They’re NOT CHRISTIAN, but you seem to think they are, showing how thoroughly you’ve been deceived by Satan. You should fix that by studying an ACCURATE translation of God’s word, becoming honest, and seeking God. And then REPENT for your apostate ways.

  • Char

    Emery, all I can say to you is OK. Have fun down here populating the earth like you say and learn to work on that temper you have. Take care!

    • emery richards

      Temper? What temper is that? I have displayed no “temper” either way, good or bad. You certainly read a lot into things that aren’t there. Down here populating the Earth? Are you intimating that you’re one of the 144,000? I assure you, that’s not very likely. You won’t be going to heaven, hell, or anyplace except the grave. You seem to misunderstand God’s word regarding soul, hell, heaven, and annointed. It would benefit you to study them much more carefully, and not rely on false religion to put thoughts into your head. That’s YOUR job, not false religion’s job. Think your OWN thoughts.

  • Larry

    In these prophetic times, I must say, it is too late for our nation. What has been started cannot be reversed. What has been started is the downfall of America. I look up and lift up my head to the sky, every day, for my redemption draweth nigh! We, Born Again Believer’s in the Lord Jesus Christ, are going HOME to be with Him forever and ever.

    1 Thessalonians 4:13-18 (KJV) But I would not have you to be ignorant, brethren, concerning them which are asleep, that ye sorrow not, even as others which have no hope. For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so them also which sleep in Jesus will God bring with him. For this we say unto you by the word of the Lord, that we which are alive and remain unto the coming of the Lord shall not prevent them which are asleep. For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first: Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord. Wherefore comfort one another with these words.

    • Emery Richards

      Larry,
      What makes you think God changes? He NEVER changes. He has NEVER been partial to a nation, other than His chosen one. It is MANKIND who WILL be judged, not any single nation.

      None of you are “going home to be with him forever” either. God’s word teaches that we haven’t got an immortal soul, and that only the 144,000 EVER go to heaven AFTER being TRANSFORMED into spirit beings, of which we ARE NOT one. No hell, no going to heaven. It’s to the grave alone, and possibly a resurrection, IF you did the ENTIRE WILL OF GOD all day, every day, with no exceptions, before you died.

      It’ SO SAD to see so many cling to the teachings of religions, INSTEAD of the teachings of God. That is exactly what you’ve posted herein. Religions are false, God’s word is not false. Religions teach lies, God’s word is the ONLY truth you are ever going to find.

      • Skywatcher

        Emery, you’ve already had your beating on this site, so why don’t you tuck your cultic tail between your legs and continue to encourage the rest of your J.W. friends! There’s plenty of confusion in the world w/out your contribution!

        You said, “What makes you think God changes? He NEVER changes.” Well, isn’t that just precious! Your NWT has changed numerous times since the Watch Tower Society began! So, how do you know you have the truth now? Let me save you the trouble…you DON’T! You never quote any of your “scriptures” as someone has already pointed out, because you know we will be quick to point out the errors!

        You said, “Religions are false”, and you’ve got that right! Your cult isn’t even considered a religion and you’re movement is as phony as a three dollar bill! You said, “God’s Word is not false”, then how come you never quote any of it here? I would have to suggest that you are ashamed of it. I wonder what your book says in Mark 8: 38? I hate to tell you, sir, but what you proclaim to be God’s Word IS false! False in every doctrinal way and therefore, that makes you a “wolf in sheep’s clothing”. How does that make you feel? Hold your breath; I’m not really interested!

        Pick up you cracked bat and go home! That would be something to see… a cracked pot carrying a cracked bat! 🙂

        • Emery Richards

          Skywatcher;
          You should probably take your apostate, antichrist self somewhere else.
          I am opposed to all cults, not part of one, even though you repeatedly claim Jesus started a cult, and that God sent him to do it. Your knowledge of God’s word is zero, so how can you claim otherwise? You cannot.
          I am in no cult, Jesus STARTED NO CULT. It takes many times for something to sink into your head it seems.

          • skywatcher

            Guess what! He didn’t start the Watch Tower Society either! He would NEVER bless something that flies in direct opposition to Himself, especially calling him “a god”!

            You and your ilk are so far out in a theological left field that you’re swimming in the sewage lagoon!

            You call me apostate and antichrist! You should take a moment, grab a real Holy Bible, and compare it with yours, reading 1 John 5: 7, 8,

            “For there are three that bear record in heaven, the Father, the Word (Jesus Christ, Jn. 1: 1), and the Holy Ghost: and THESE THREE ARE ONE”!

            V. 8, “And there are three that bear witness in earth, the Spirit, and the water, and the blood: and these three agree IN ONE”! (emphasis mine). If your NWT doesn’t say that, then you are preaching a false gospel.

            Show us what your book says in this passage…if you dare!

          • Emery Richards

            Jesus started the Christian Congregation. Today they are called Jehovah’s Witnesses. Witnesses, who witness FOR GOD and Jesus. Saying God doesn’t bless the congregation He sent His son to begin is blasphemy. God’s commands are not a sewage lagoon either, again you blaspheme against God. And yes, you are apostate and antichrist. You think God’s son, is God Himself. And I have HUNDREDS of Bibles, and many original texts from which to compare them. All you’ve got is your apostate religion and false translation, and a VERY bad attitude toward God’s Earthly servants.

            And don’t ask me to show YOU anything. You are undeserving of being taught anything, since you reject God, His son, and His inspired word, AND you reject God’s servants. Rejecting ANY of these things makes you God’s ENEMY.

          • Skywatcher

            Emery, you’re an emasculated/neutered COWARD!!! The gonads of your brain have been washed with so much false doctrine that you cannot even back up any of your statements with the Word of God! You’ve proven it time and time again! Why don’t you grow a pair, and show us some of your “scriptures”? You don’t like the light, is that your problem? Come up out of your lagoon, Nessy, and take a bath in the precious blood of Jesus Christ for the remission of your sins! Heb. 9: 22!

            Do you have ANY idea why I speak this sharply to you? Let me tell you…I hope that something really sharp will prick that balloon of deceit and denial you find yourself in, and you’ll come to the saving knowledge of Jesus Christ! Your NWT is no more from the original manuscripts than my Webster’s Dictionary is!

            Even your O.T. “scriptures” contradict the original Hebrew Scriptures, of which there are plenty of copies of the originals! What say you to that? Your cult had the rapture happening on numerous dates and Christ didn’t appear, so the next best thing they could do was to say Christ came in spirit! Hogwash! That may fly with the lesser intelligent members of society, but not to a clear and rational thinker! They got caught and proven to be false prophets; too bad stoning of false prophets wasn’t permissible today! Oh wait! It is coming back, and we’ll see who takes the last stand!

            You said, “I am opposed to all cults, not part of one…” Why don’t you tell that to your father, the devil, because the rest of us are not swallowing that lie! YOU haven’t done your homework! Your “religion” is an offshoot of Seventh Day Adventism…another cult! OUCH!

            To date, you’ve only said one thing that was true, and I find that pretty despicable since you’ve had diarrhea of the mouth for quite some time now. The ONE truth that you spoke was this, “Jesus STARTED NO CULT”! On this we can both agree; Charles Taze Russell started your cult! Too bad he hadn’t died at birth, because you and millions of others are going to die without salvation, all because of this lying and deceptive miscreant! You’ll have all of eternity to rewrite the Book again for Him!

            Let me share with you a little secret…I have a J.W. friend who drops off the Watch Tower and Awake “magazines” almost weekly. I don’t have to read very far before I see a contradiction of the Holy Bible, and what’s even more interesting, is some of the articles they write condemn the Society! I save these things to show others! Incidentally, one of the last ones was the best joke I’ve seen in a long time! They were talking about honesty and the importance of such! Go figure! Belial trying to encourage his followers to be honest, when at the very top, it doesn’t exist! Emery, I simply cannot get over the arrogance of your upper crust, who believe they can rewrite Scriptures to say what they want them to say and to get away with it, and then publishing an article on honesty! It’s really all about money, not saving souls!

            Many people are not aware of this, but a few years ago, the Watch Tower Society was taken to task for its blatant homosexuality! AT that time, there were something like 11,000 cases against them that were reported! We believe the Vatican is evil for this, and it is, but the WTS is its evil twin! It was even on TV, but some of YOUR money paid to have it “go away”!

            You really should take a KJV, sit down and read it. After all, it’s only 400 years older than your comic book, making it the ULTIMATE authority to any new ankle-biter bible that comes along so many years later.

            As I’ve said before, you don’t really serve Jehovah; you serve a money-hungry and deceptive organization! Take your bath in the blood of Jesus, and He’ll open your eyes to the truth of what we’ve been sharing with you. You really should because your soul “is found wanting”.

            Come on fella! Show us what you’ve got! What does your NWT say in John 1: 12? How come you ignored the passage I gave you in my last post which was strong evidential support for the Trinity? Afraid to broach the topic? How come you failed to answer my question re: Mk. 8: 38? Not allowed, or too ignorant of the Word of God to do so? Come on, I’ll play in the field with you for awhile! You come out with you mouth wide open but nothing comes out of it but trash! You NEVER quote Scriptures and yet, everybody else is doomed for a place called Hell that you don’t believe in, and then again, you’re not even sure you’re going to Paradise! You are to be most pitied…a man of no hope!

            Let’s see some of your New World Order bible, man! Here’s a link that exposes your organization for what it truly is: http://www.theforbiddenknowledge.com/hardtruth/dirty_watchtower_secrets_pt2.htm Type in the word, “masturbation” and see what you will find in that very enlightening article!

            It’s not anything that I would want people to know about a group I was associated with in any way! Here’s a little foretaste for you: “2. According to Larry D., a gay Toronto former JW, “Percy … was totally anti-marriage and he made sure that none of the “Bethel boys” even contemplated the subject ….” Larry described the Bethel boys of the 1950s. “They were all young and handsome, hand-picked by Percy Chapman; there was even an elite group known as ‘Percy’s boys’ who would accompany him to expensive restaurants and bars … at the time, Bethel was on Irwin Avenue in the center of the gay district of Toronto. There was even a Kingdom Hall above ‘The Parkside,’ one of Toronto’s few gay bars in the fifties and sixties.”
            3. Regardless of his dubious relationship with Chapman, Greenlees became Treasurer of WTB&TS and one of the Governing Body. According to Larry, “He managed to escape the witch hunt at Brooklyn Bethel in the early seventies when dozens of Bethel boys were Disfellowshipped after learning of their midnight trysts in the sauna in Brooklyn Bethel.” Jehovah’s Witnesses speak out: Part 2

          • Emery Richards

            Skywatcher;
            You’ve posted a LOT of lies herein about me, God, Jesus, and God’s word. It appears that you haven’t a clue as to how to discuss anything, research anything, or argue a point. All you’re capable of is ad hominem attacks, which are lies not designed to make your point, but designed to persecute the one you’re pretending to discuss things with. Now THAT’S cowardice, ignorance, and a great way to show you don’t care what God or His SON, Jesus, teach about such things, specifically Christian behavior. You display NO CHRISTIAN BEHAVIOR, only the behavior of the world, as Satan has caused it to be. This clearly shows that you are NOT CHRISTIAN, but you ARE OF THIS WORLD. Jesus taught constantly, that Christians are to be “NO PART OF THE WORLD”. You turn your back on those teachings, causing you to display yet more antichrist behavior. I can’t imagine how you think that will benefit you in ANY WAY, because it never will. You attack those who believe differently from you, rather than discussing it with them. That NEVER works. You don’t even use accurate information to discuss, you only use false information.

            My Father, being God the Almighty, is not what you just called Him, He is the creator of all things and people, AND YOU. You just called Him Satan. I’m sure He’s not very pleased with you about that. After calling God Satan, you then go about attacking His Earthly servants again. Amazing. And you don’t know ONE SINGLE ACCURATE OR TRUTHFUL THING ABOUT THEM. You’ve never asked them anything, discussed anything with them, read any of their holy spirit inspired printed materials, read their wonderfully translated NWT, or anything that could give you accurate information about God’s servants. NOT ONE SINGLE THING. And you PRETEND to know all about them. Again, AMAZING.

            So not knowing who or what God’s servants are, what they do or teach, anything about God’s word, or about God or Jesus, you call all of them names. The ones that really are bad are where you called God Satan, and lie about Jesus, and lie about God’s word. I find those things particularly abhorrent.

            You should just close your computer and stop before you get yourself into more trouble with our God and Creator.

          • Emery Richards

            Skywatcher;
            Well over a year ago you proved to me that you WANTED to be God’s enemy. So why do you feel it’s SO NECESSARY to re-confirm that your His enemy? I already know it. Yet over, and over, and over again, you confirm that fact. God gets it too. Remember, He sees WHAT’S IN YOUR HEART without you saying a thing. That’s why He doesn’t allow you to understand His word, and that’s why you will receive His adverse judgement pretty soon. The second death.

          • Emery Richards

            Skywatcher;
            James 3: 8 But no human can tame the tongue. It is unruly and injurious, full of deadly poison. 9 With it we praise Jehovah, the Father, and yet with it we curse men who have come into existence “in the likeness of God.” 10 Out of the same mouth come blessing and cursing.

            From your falsely translated KJV it says the same thing:

            James 3:8-10King James Version (KJV)

            8 But the tongue can no man tame; it is an unruly evil, full of deadly poison.

            9 Therewith bless we God, even the Father; and therewith curse we men, which are made after the similitude of God.

            10 Out of the same mouth proceedeth blessing and cursing. My brethren, these things ought not so to be.

            Matthew speaks of behavior toward others, which you constantly ignore with your foul language and persecutorial behavior.
            Matthew 22:36 “Teacher, which is the greatest commandment in the Law?” 37 He said to him: “‘You must love Jehovah your God with your whole heart and with your whole soul and with your whole mind.’ 38 This is the greatest and first commandment. 39 The second, like it, is this: ‘You must love your neighbor as yourself.’ 40 On these two commandments the whole Law hangs, and the Prophets.”

            Romans 13:9 For the law code, “You must not commit adultery, you must not murder, you must not steal, you must not covet,” and whatever other commandment there is, is summed up in this saying: “You must love your neighbor as yourself.” 10 Love does not work evil to one’s neighbor; therefore, love is the law’s fulfillment.

            Galations 5:14 For the entire Law has been fulfilled in one commandment, namely: “You must love your neighbor as yourself.”

            James 2:8 If, now, you carry out the royal law according to the scripture, “You must love your neighbor as yourself,” you are doing quite well. 9 But if you continue showing favoritism, you are committing sin, and you are convicted by the law as transgressors.

            So, you either REJECT the scriptures’ teachings, OR you hate yourself so thoroughly, that this behavior of yours is the result.

    Skywatcher, good morning. I had to chuckle when I saw these few comments to good ole Emery (again). Being such a caring believer, you just can’t help yourself to keep trying to get through his thick exterior. Well, good luck and I hope someday soon you or one of the others that haven’t given up on him, will get through to him. I believe there are quite a few on this post that have planted the seed. God Bless you in your efforts!

      You got me, Char! I just cannot help myself! Jesus Christ died for him too, and I sooo would love for Emery to come out of the darkness of deception and legalism and into the glorious light of our Lord Jesus Christ! My efforts will not drag on, just as God doesn’t always strive with man, and I follow His example, Rom. 1: 24: “God gave them up…” God revealed right from the start that His Spirit “shall not always strive with man.” Gen. 6: 3

      God bless you!

    Evil Emery, if you have any further lies to say to me, prove it with Scripture or walk away in defeat, you COWARD! I’ve been all afternoon reading up and saving info on the JW cult, so that I can have links to share with others. I have several books on the topic, but the links are easier for this format! Here’s a link or two that other posters can read for themselves…thanks to YOUR persistence in fighting with a true son of God!

    http://www.theforbiddenknowledge.com/hardtruth/russell_molester.htm –your leader confesses to adultery!
    http://www.theforbiddenknowledge.com/hardtruth/new_converts.htm –things that are kept from new converts to KH
    http://www.theforbiddenknowledge.com/hardtruth/short_history_of_watchtower.htm –the dirty truth behind the WTS

    Folks might even want to explore: The Russell Bloodline…THE WATCHTOWER & THE ILLUMINATI

    Thank you, Emery for making this brief commercial announcement possible! I’m sure your “organization” will be very pleased that you were a TOOL to help have them exposed! I see a “disfellowshipping” in your NEAR future! Come back and tell us how much of God’s love is in that experience for you!

    I’d like to tell you to “get lost”, but it’s too late! You already are: Whosoever transgresseth, and abideth not in the doctrine of Christ, hath not God. He that abideth in the doctrine of Christ, he hath both the Father and the Son.” 2 John 9

    See! I’m not afraid to use my Scriptures in public! By the way, THANK YOU, for persecuting me for standing up for the Truth, Jesus Christ, John 14: 6,

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

    Your works are pointless too, in light of salvation: “For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that NOT of yourselves: it is the GIFT of God. Not of works, lest any man should boast.” Eph. 2: 8,9

    Are your eyes burning yet, from reading these real Scriptures? 🙂

    • Emery Richards

      Skywatcher;
      NONE of God’s earthly servants are evil. We ALL do the ENTIRE WILL OF GOD, all day, every day, with no exceptions. God commands us to be honest, and I am honest, AND I obey God in every one of His commands.

      This is no battle, so there is no “defeat”, and I certainly am no coward. That is simply another one of your attacks on one of God’s dedicated servants, which is the same thing as attacking God, again, proving you are dedicated to being God’s enemy. Your childish belief that this is some sort of contest shows a total lack of spiritual or physical maturity.

      There exists no JW CULT. Jesus created the Christian Congregation, which is what Jehovah’s Witnesses are all part of. Jesus, AGAIN, did not create any cult, nor is he a cult leader, neither is God. But still, you continue to accuse them both of that, sadly.

      You claim you have been reading up on and saving information on God’s servants and their organization. The only problem with that, is all the information you are reading is from those who hate God and His servants, so none of the information is anything but lies. If you want accurate information about them, GO TO THEM. ASK THEM. GO TO THEIR WEB SITE. GO TO A KINGDOM HALL. TALK TO WITNESSES. READ THEIR PRINTED INFORMATION. But don’t continue to lie and say any information about them from apostates and liars is anything but lies. you have a real penchant for lies, and lying. Can’t understand that. There are thousands of people, web sites, and false religions who hate God’s servants, since they teach truth, and the organizations and sites and people want them to disappear. We make them out to be liars, simply by stating the truth. JUST LIKE YOU DO. Attacking them, persecuting them, lying about them, and behaving extremely childishly does nothing to support your false position. Since your position IS FALSE. Truth and facts do nothing but get in your way.

      Skywatcher, I have never persecuted you. Refuting your lies and stating facts is NOT persecution. You should look up the definition of the word. You again lie about God’s word. It says CLEARLY that faith without works is dead.
      James 2:26 Indeed, just as the body without spirit is dead, so also faith without works is dead.

      As I informed you before, your understanding of any scripture evades you, and that’s pretty sad, and I wish it were different, but God’s arrangements cannot be changed, except by Him. You are not capable of doing so, try though you may.

      And no eyes could ever burn from reading anything. Such childishness.

        Hi Emery, I have to admit I haven’t talked to a Jehovah witness in quite sometime. I’ve provided a link which compares

        JW to christianity. Would you please check it to make sure their is no misinformation. I am being sincere so please

        don’t split hairs with what you see on the link. You said you were here to discuss and not fight and that’s fine.

        So, let me know if you agree with what’s on the link I provided then we all can discuss it with you.

          Dan;
          If you are familiar with the site you provided, then you know it has three columns, one list JW beliefs, the middle the Bible supposedly, and on the right, a scriture from KJV.

          Only problem is, it’s very inaccurate. It says God’s word says this and that, when God’s word doesn’t say those things. Not the original texts anyway. I’ve studied them all for decades and I can tell you, the KJV or any Bible like it is not anywhere close to the originals. I’ve only been a witness for five years, but I’ve studied scriptures and translations of them for 45 years.

      Skywatcher,

      Evil Emery !!Come on now !! I don’t get that feeling at all !!

      • Emery Richards

        Hi Jim;
        How are you? Don’t worry about Skywatcher, he/she is on a mission to destroy anyone serving God. Ignore him/her. Don’t let it bother you, it doesn’t bother me.

        • Skywatcher

          Emery, I have to hand it to you…you’re smooth! You used your father’s old trick…arouse some suspicion (against a real Christian), and Satan will take it from there! Anybody reading the vast majority of my posts (excluding those to you), will find I’m loving, kind, supportive, and edifying, and in step with the REAL Word of God. You make me sick! YOU ONLY 5 YRS. a J.W. and suddenly, everybody else is wrong and you’re and your cult are the only ones who have it altogether, when your “scriptures” have been changed how many times since Russell started this mess? Hmmm, I find something fishy about that!

          If your NWT is so accurate and holy, then why did you have to re-translate it or any other, for that matter?!

          • Emery Richards

            Skywatcher;’
            As to your initial comments, they don’t merit response. My father is Jehovah God, God the Almighty, and He has no tricks. Why would He need tricks? Strange of you to say He does. Oh well. And as far as “anybody reading the vast majority of your posts”, they’re of no concern. You’re not what you claim, loving and kind. As far as your claim of “making you sick”, that is your problem, maybe Pepto Bismol? And I have no scriptures. God, however, DOES. They’re HIS amigo.

            And the NWT is not mine, it’s God’s, again. Why were the translation errors corrected, with regards most other translations? Because they were ERRORS. It was also put into MODERN English. When the KJV was finished, it’s Old English verbiage was already 200 years out of use, out of date. All translations, are, for the most part, supposed to make God’s word more available to it’s readers, in a language they can understand, and relate to, so that God’s word can reach their hearts. The same is true of the NWT. It is totally accurate with regards to the literal meaning of each word from which it was translated. It was checked for years against all existing scrolls, all 5,000 or more of them, to ensure it says what God initially intended to say. Translations, like the KJV and DR have MANY spurious (fictitious) texts ADDED to them. There exist MORE than 19,000 deliberately mistranslated words. Changing ONE WORD of a sentence, in ANY written word, has the effect of changing the entire sentence’s meaning. So there are more than 19,000 sentences in the KJV, for example, whose meaning was changed from the original meaning/sentence. And I didn’t translate the NWT. The translation committee, consisting of a little over 3 million people around the world, did. What I DID re-translate, was starting in college, to find an accurate translation of God’s word. We went through 12 in the classes, and I’ve gone through many dozens more in the past 45 years. I have yet to find one of them that is accurate with regards the original scrolls we used. I hope this answers your question.

      • Skywatcher

        Jim, he’s a JW preaching lies! Go some of Geoff’s other posts and see the hours upon hours we’ve spent trying to convince this devil he is NOT on God’s team, but he won’t listen. Some have posted literally pages of info discrediting the Watchtower Society, and he won’t look at a single one because they’re all brainwashed not to look at anything that isn’t WTS material!

        For heaven’s sake! Look at his arrogance, “I re-translated the Bible” or something to that effect he said! You won’t listen to him long before you know he’s not lying about that! NOTHING HE SAYS LINES UP WITH THE SCRIPTURES! And, he’s too afraid to use his own “scriptures” on here because they don’t match the KJV! Don’t be fooled!

        • Jim Eckland

          Skywatcher,

          I’ve been reading your comments for a while and you need to ease up….Don’t seem like much of a Christian to me. Apparently all of the translations have issues and ideas about proper Christian belief are as numerous as there are Denominations. I’ve been to a JW Bible Study and sensed only a sincere belief in God and Scripture. Say what you want but when was the last time you spread the Gospel? Have you ever set up a Christian Information Table for new believers? How about knocked on your neighbor’s and share the Bible? Guess what… the Jehovah Witnesses do it regularly and in this aspect they are Following the last Commandment of Jesus a lot more than most Christians.
          We need to tone it down and show we are Christians by Our love. Have Discussions and leave the name-calling out . Take Care..

          • Dan

            Jim, so you support people who knock on doors spreading the idea that Jesus is also the angel Michael?

            Hey I agree with your statement “Apparently all of the translations have issues and ideas about proper Christian belief are as numerous as there are Denominations”

            But after you, went to a JW Bible Study and sensed only a sincere belief in God and Scripture, did you also come away with the new understanding that ” Hey Jesus may rightly also be the angel Michael?

            And so now after learning this new understanding do you still feel the Jehova witness doctrine should be

            taught as part of the Gospel? Jim, if your real problem is with Skywatchers temperament I think you should

            use something other than the beliefs of a JW to make your point.

          • Emery Richards

            Dan;
            You’re OBSESSED with Michael, the archangel. That being the case, I will address your obsessive compulsiveness:

            IS JESUS CHRIST THE SAME PERSON AS MICHAEL THE ARCHANGEL?
            The name of this Michael appears only five times in the Bible. The glorious spirit person who bears the name is referred to as “one of the chief princes,” “the great prince who has charge of your [Daniel’s] people,” and as “the archangel.” (Dan. 10:13; 12:1; Jude 9, RS) Michael means “Who Is Like God?” The name evidently designates Michael as the one who takes the lead in upholding God’s sovereignty and destroying God’s enemies.
            At 1 Thessalonians 4:16 (RS), the command of Jesus Christ for the resurrection to begin is described as “the archangel’s call,” and Jude 9 says that the archangel is Michael. Would it be appropriate to liken Jesus’ commanding call to that of someone LESSER in authority? Reasonably, then, the archangel Michael is Jesus Christ. (Interestingly, the expression “archangel” is NEVER found in the plural in the Scriptures, thus implying that THERE IS ONLY ONE.)
            Revelation 12:7-12 says that Michael and his angels would WAR AGAINST SATAN AND HURL HIM AND HIS WICKED ANGELS OUT OF HEAVEN in connection with the conferring of kingly authority on Christ. Jesus is later depicted as leading the armies of heaven in war against the nations of the world. (Rev. 19:11-16) Is it not reasonable that Jesus would also be the one to take action against the one he described as “ruler of this world,” Satan the Devil? (John 12:31) Daniel 12:1 (RS) associates the ‘standing up of Michael’ to act with authority with “a time of trouble, such as never has been since there was a nation till that time.” That would certainly fit the experience of the nations when Christ as heavenly executioner takes action against them. So the evidence indicates that the Son of God was known as Michael before he came to earth and is known also by that name since his return to heaven where he resides as the glorified spirit Son of God.

            God’s word, the Bible says that Jesus will abyss Satan, and it says Michael will war with Satan and hurl him into the abyss. Is Satan hurled TWICE into the abyss? Certainly not. Is Satan warred with TWICE during the battle of Armageddon? CERTAINLY NOT. So unless you are wrong, Jesus and Michael the archangel ARE ONE IN THE SAME. If you are going to ARGUE falsely something in God’s word, shouldn’t you KNOW WHAT YOU ARE TALKING ABOUT. Everyone alive would believe you should know what you are talking about, except, of course, YOU. Your obsession about something you know NOTHING about apparently, shows that you don’t care about facts and what God’s word says, and that you ONLY care about your obsession, and proving yourself right, when you are most certainly NOT correct. All you care about besides glorifying yourself (when ALL glory belongs ONLY to God) is taking what belongs only to God for yourself, and attacking God’s faithful Earthly servants, known by you as Jehovah’s Witnesses. Attacking God’s servants, JUST AS ISRAEL DID BY KILLING HIS PROPHETS COUNTLESS TIMES, is the same as attacking God, and that DOES make you God’s ENEMY. Is that really what you want to be? Do you REALLY want the second death, Gehenna? Do you REALLY want to never experience ANY of the blessings, such as the resurrection after Armageddon, to a paradise Earth that God has PROMISED to His faithful servants? If that second death is your goal, you have certainly succeeded. If it’s not, you have a LOT of work to do, and a lot of repentance and praying for forgiveness to do.

          • Skywatcher

            Hello there, Jim Eckland. Thank you, for your critique! This reply will be in two parts, due to limited space.

            I come off very strong, because I have a huge passion for lost souls, and I DON’T like seeing them being led astray from God’s eternal Word–Christ!

            You said, “Apparently all of the translations have issues and ideas about proper Christian belief are as numerous as there are Denominations.”

            That’s only partially true! For centuries, people have been trying to find fault with the KJV and they cannot. As others and I have shown numerous times, the polluted “per-versions” have MANY seriously grave issues and errors in them! One’s immortal soul depends upon having the truth and we only get one “kick at the can”! Heb. 9: 27

            Emphasis in Scripture texts are mine.

            Jim, are you a J.W.? If so, what does the following say to you:

            “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.” KJV

            “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was A god.” NWT.

            What’s wrong with this picture? Anything? They both CANNOT be correct!

            Notice, the word, “Word” is capitalized because it is a proper noun, addressing Jesus Christ.

            The NWT says Jesus is merely one OF A NUMBER OF gODS! Jehovah God says, “Unto thee, it was shewed, that thou mightest know that the LORD he is God; there is none else beside him. Know therefore this day, and consider it in thine heart, that the LORD he is God in heaven above, and upon the earth beneath: there is none else.” Deut. 4: 35,36

            See: 2 Sam. 7: 22; Isa. 43: 11; 44: 6, 8; 45: 5, 21; 47: 8. These passages say that there is no other God but God.

            Jehovah’s Witnesses deny the Trinity, so they say this cannot be referring to Jesus Christ as God/Jehovah. What then does the smart student do with Isa. 42:1, where God is speaking, and He’s referring to Christ, the servant He is prophesying is to come (Phil. 2: 11), and His atoning work on the cross of Calvary? So far, it sounds like Christ was merely a servant, or subservient to Almighty God doesn’t it?

            Look at v. 8, “I am the LORD: that is my name: and my glory will I not give to another, neither my praises to graven images.” Sounds good so far?

            Let’s jump ahead to Phil. 2: 5-11, “Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus: 6. Who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery TO BE EQUAL WITH God: 7. But made himself of no reputation, and TOOK UPON HIMSELF THE FORM OF A SERVANT, and was made in the likeness of men: 8. And being found in the fashion as a man, he humbled himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross.
            9. Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him, and given him A NAME WHICH IS ABOVE EVERY NAME: 10. That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth; 11. And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.”

            Jim, we now have an issue. The J.W.’s believe that Christ was the archangel Michael, but here, we see He was God in a human body! How do we know this? From the above O.T. passages, that say there is only one God, and “beside Him, there is no other”. Christ was quite comfortable all through the N.T. to allow himself to be worshipped as God, and to say, “…he that hath seen me, hath seen the Father; and how sayest thou then, Shew us the Father? 10. Believest thou not that I am in the Father, and the Father in me? the words that I speak unto you I speak not of myself: but the Father that dwelleth in me, he doeth the works.” John 14: 9, 10.

            John 16: 27, “For the Father himself loveth you, because ye have loved me, and have believed that I came out from God. I came forth from the Father, and am come into the world: again, I leave the world, and go to the Father.”

            Colossians 1 is speaking of Christ and in v. 15, it says in reference to Him, “Who is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of every creature: 16: For by Him (Christ) were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers; all things were created by him and for him: 17. And he is before all things, and by him all things consist. 19. For it pleased the Father hat in him should all fulness (of the Godhead) dwell.”

            The word, “firstborn” DOES NOT mean Christ was born as the JW’s teach. It means He was the originator (Creator) of everything else. That’s why Paul quickly follows up with the next verse! Scripture must always be kept in context! JW’s don’t do that.

            So far, we see that Christ and Jehovah are one God, and Isaiah 42 and Rev. 22: 12, 13, 16 cements the deal: “And behold, I come quickly; and my reward is with me, to give every man according as his work shall be. 13. I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end, the first and the last. Who is speaking these words? Christ! That’s right! This last verse identifies Him as the speaker. Since He was/is eternal, He could not therefore, be the Archangel Michael, a created being, that had a beginning and an end! V. 16 says, “I Jesus…”, which identifies the ETERNAL speaker!

            The plot thickens…”That they all may be one; as thou, Father, art in me, and I in thee, that they also may be one in us: that the world may believe that thou hast sent me.” John 17: 23.

            This is alluding to the Godhead, which the J.W.’s adamantly deny because they have taken IT out of their translation! Is such a personage mentioned in Scripture? I’m glad you asked, Jim! See Acts 17: 29, “Forasmuch then as we are the offspring of God, we ought not to think that the Godhead is like unto gold, or silver, or stone, graven by art and man’s device.”

            “For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse…” Rom. 1:20

            We KNOW that Jesus could NOT be the Archangel Michael, because angels are NOT to be worshipped, and they correct those who do worship them: “And I John saw these things, and heard them. And when I had heard and seen, I fell down to worship before the feet of the angel which showed me these things. 9. Then he said unto me, See thou do it not: for I am thy fellowservant, and of they brethren the prophets, and of them which keep the sayings of this book: worship God.” Rev. 22: 8, 9

            Not once in the N.T. did Jesus Christ EVER stop people from worshipping Him, nor did He ever forbid it! Why? Because He was/is God!

            It appears you don’t like me addressing demons or messengers of such when I recognize one. I would love for you to correct the Lord of Glory when He addressed the religious wayward in His day as devils/demons,

            “Jesus said unto them, If God were your Father, ye would love me: for I proceeded forth and came from God; neither came I of myself, but he sent me. 43. Why do ye not understand my speech? even because ye cannot hear my word. 44. Ye are of your father the devil (baby demons), and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and 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 (you’re baby liars), and the father of it… He that is of God heareth God’s words: ye therefore hear them not, BECAUSE YE ARE NOT OF God.” (Emphasis and comments in brackets are my own, for explanation purposes)

            Jim, these were not particularly endearing or politically correct statements Christ is making! He’s calling them out, and calling them down to the lowest! Christ will never exalt a demon or bless or compromise with him in his corrupt doctrines! He doesn’t mess around with them or turn a blind eye to their subtleties! I paraphrased Christ’s words when I addressed the demon IN Emery Richards. Please see PT. 2

          • Skywatcher

            Jim Eckland, here’s PT. 2

            Jim, it annoys the Holy Spirit within me each and every time I see His words being twisted and manipulated! I recognize rather quickly what I am up against, and as a soldier in the Lord’s army (Eph. 6: 10) I immediately launch into warfare mode, and there’s never anything pretty about warfare! I speak with the authority and boldness that Christ has empowered me with, and expects me and all others who carry His precious name to do so.

            Here’s a verse that has been my guide for over 50 years, “And whatsoever ye do, do it heartily, as to the LORD, and not unto men, Knowing that of the Lord ye shall receive the reward of the inheritance; for ye serve the Lord Christ.” Col. 3: 23, 24.

            I eagerly and passionately call them out as He reveals them, and I show the “children of darkness” the respect due to them. A good soldier NEVER compromises with the enemy while actively engaged in battle. I MAKE NO APOLOGIES FOR THAT.

            ER is spewing a mess of tainted “scriptures”, which t’aint of God, and attempting to cause people to doubt their true faith and to cross over to his cult. He has been shown numerous times by other posters, copious and voluminous evidences that prove his teachings are those of a cult, and not of God. We all took hours to do this, and he DIDN’T bother to check out a single piece, but rather fell into his brainwashed trance and denied it, accusing us of being ignorant liars! He even denied the newspaper article I posted yesterday, of Charles Russell’s trial for adultery!

            If you will kindly do yourself a favor, and compare the Scriptures I have presented in this comment with a NWT, you will see they have cleverly and disobediently changed the texts to suit their own purposes, whereby turning the gospel and doctrines into “doctrines of devils”, I Tim. 4: 1. This is a very serious charge! Hebrews 13: 9 gives us a very stern warning,

            “Be not carried about with divers (diverse) and strange doctrines…”

            Look at Col. 1: 21-23., “And you, that were sometime alienated and enemies in your mind by wicked works, yet now hath he (Christ) reconciled, 22. In the body of his flesh through death, to present you holy and UNBLAMEABLE AND UNREPROVEABLE in his sight: IF ye continue in the faith GROUNDED AND SETTLED, and be NOT MOVED AWAY FROM the hope of the gospel, which ye have heard, and which was preached to every creature which is under heaven…”

            So you see, if you compared Scripture to the NWT, you can see the blatant errors and manipulations. Very dishonest! Rev. 22: 18, 19, “For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book, If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book: And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book.”

            Well, my friend, they have done just that! If this is referring to the Holy Bible as a whole, they have done this all the way through. If this admonition only refers to the Book of Revelation, they have also done it! They take Rev. 7, which is specifically speaking to the nation of Israel, and they spiritualize it to refer to themselves, and have built a whole doctrine around it!

            Jim, you said, “I’ve been to a JW Bible Study and sensed only a sincere belief in God and Scripture.”

            One can be very sincere about something until death, and still be wrong, i.e., an atheist! If they are not working with the truth, then what good is their sincerity or passion, or canvassing?! What benefit is it to them or to the poor souls they lead astray by teaching another Jesus? They may as well be teaching and preaching about Jesus from Mexico! They were only friendly to you because they were hoping to convert you. You should see how unkind, merciless, unfriendly, and hateful they are to their own children should they “apostacize”, leave the faith! They take Scriptures out of context to come up with the criteria to disfellowship, and many of their children commit suicide after their parents have disowned them! Is God pleased about this? Surely, you can answer that.

            You asked, “Say what you want but when was the last time you spread the Gospel?” I share Christ with every opportunity He gives me on a daily basis, and yes, I have led souls to Him! There’s NOT A SINGLE J.W. who has led a soul to Christ as of yet! You said, “Guess what… the Jehovah Witnesses do it regularly and in this aspect they are Following the last Commandment of Jesus a lot more than most Christians.” I admire them for their zealousness, passion, and boldness, but to date, they haven’t led a single soul to the JESUS CHRIST of the Bible, because they preach a different Christ!

            I don’t believe in going door to door to peddle my gospel to strangers. I invite people to my home for a meal, and a time of fellowship, getting to know them, and they getting to know me. Once I prove myself a friend, then I have earned the right to share Jesus Christ with them, as the HOLY SPIRIT within me leads.

            I don’t despise or hate Emery; I DESPISE THE FALSE DOCTRINE he is pushing! There is a huge difference! In closing, please allow me to show you where we as Bible-believing/practicing Christians get our mandate to stand firm and not to waver or to compromise, “Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world.” I John 4: 1

            “And this is love, that we walk after his commandments.” Let’s see what one of those commandments are: “For many deceivers are entered into the world, who confess not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh. This is a deceiver and an antichrist. LOOK TO YOURSELVES, that we LOSE NOT those things which we have wrought, but that we receive a full reward. WHOSOEVER transgresseth, and abideth NOT IN THE DOCTRINE OF CHRIST HATH NOT GOD. He that abideth in the doctrine of Christ, he hath both the Father and the Son. If there come any unto you, and bring NOT THIS DOCTRINE, receive him NOT into your house, neither bid him God speed (blessing): For he that biddeth him God speed is partaker of his evil deeds.”

            So Jim, do you now see why it is so important that we know who our enemies AND the enemies of the cross of Christ are? Jesus didn’t make them feel good about themselves, nor should we! That doesn’t mean we don’t love those people, and seek for a chance to witness to them. Jesus came to heal the sick; I don’t see any better candidates than the spiritually sick JW’s, do you?

            Dan;
            You’re OBSESSED with Michael, the archangel. That being the case, I will address your obsessive compulsiveness:

            Wow Emery, now that’s some rant there. Are we cycling today; bipolar by chance? Laugh, I kid!

            Listen, I’ve already told you 4 days ago that we have nothing in common; other than as you pointed out we are

            both still GOD’s creation, but outside of that, we have nothing to discuss. I’m not like some and I will not

            argue with you because you’re beyond my reach right now. I liken you to a struggling swimmer in the ocean who

            needs my help but the problem is if I rush in now; you may drown us both. We’re all watching you Emery and

            waiting and praying for you to stop struggling but until then you’re dangerous to some of us who would listen to

            you and I simply will not.

            Blessings

  • Dan

    So quick getting back to me ; thanks. From what I read in you post to me Emery you’re saying the scripture used from the

    bible is in conflict with the original text; which is fine we can address that later. The JW beliefs ; are they all ,some

    or none correct?

    • Emery Richards

      Dan;

      All are correct.

      • Dan

        Alright , so you don’t have any problem with Christ being the Archangel Michael ?

        • Emery Richards

          Dan;
          Certainly not, since God’s word refers to Jesus as Michael more than once. Why would I have a problem with ANYTHING God said or says? That would be foolish, and I am certainly no fool.

        • Emery Richards

          Dan;

          Are you practicing your non Christian behavior? No need, you are already quite good at it. You display NO Christian behavior, only the opposite of what Jesus taught. It is YOU who reject Jesus and his teachings. That is incredibly hypocritical of you, very un-loving, very un-Christlike. We’re commanded by Jesus to imitate him. What makes you think Jesus would behave as you do? He most definately would not.

    • Skywatcher

      Dan, you said to Jim Eckland, “if your real problem is with Skywatchers temperament I think you should

      use something other than the beliefs of a JW to make your point.”

      A huge THANK YOU, for covering my back! God bless you!

      • Emery Richards

        Skywatcher;
        Since all witnesses for God believe ONLY in what God says to them through the inspired word He authored, the Bible, then you’re essentially saying that Jim should use something other than the Bible to make his point. Not very intelligent. You’re making Jim’s previous point about you not being Christian, nor acting like one either. Dan is also saying God’s word is not something Jim should use also. Does that mean you both reject God’s word? I know you, skywatcher, reject it, and God. You’ve shown that over and over and over again through your posts.

      • Dan

        SW, you are welcome. I always try to be considerate towards another Christians understanding of

        scripture but as you already know Jehova witnesses do not follow the gospel of Jesus Christ.

        It’s just that simple.

        • Emery Richards

          Dan;
          NO ONE follows the gospel of Jesus Christ, since HE DID NOT WRITE ONE. What Bible are you reading? It has an added book called the Gospel of Jesus? That’s a new one. Did YOU write it? Must have.

          Since you do NOT KNOW THE FIRST THING ABOUT GOD’S WITNESSES, you are lying about them. You’ve NOT EVER spoken to them about their beliefs, read their literature, gone to a Kingdom hall to speak to them, visited their web site, gone to their headquarters, or anything else REQUIRED to know things about them, you must be INVENTING the things you post, which is TOTALLY DISHONEST. Which also proves you ignore God’s commands, and Jesus’ teachings about being honest, moral, righteous, and the rest of their teachings. I suppose that you believe lying can make your point. All it can do is make you look very bad, and destroy any relationship you thought you may have had with God.

          • TorchbearerforJesus

            Emery, you’re one sick twisted person, aren’t ya! You twist everybody’s words around and your arguments are weaker than water! Don’t make me come over there! I’ll pray that God will use you or remove you, and EVERY TIME I have prayed that prayer somebody has died! The RC priest I eulogized was the first time I had ever prayed that prayer… We’ll be here long after you’re gone! I don’t mess around! You don’t really know Him, so this might be quite a stretch of the imagination for you.

            Your reasoning in your latest posts to Dan and Skywatcher prove you have a grade 2 level of spiritual understanding…enough to be a fool and an equal amount to be dangerous!

          • Emery Richards

            Torch;
            Why don’t you go try to learn how to be a Christian? Your Christendom isn’t working for you. You behave like a satanic monster, instead of a righteous Christian.

      • Jim Eckland

        Stop ganging-up on Emery!!! How about a peaceful conversation? If all of you were in one room I’d fear for Emery’s well-being. My first Bible study was for 4-6 weeks with a JW. It was good. The first session I felt I met GOD for the first time. There are many things about the witnesses I admire but what kept me away primarily was their belief in staying out of politics and their position on Transfusions…

        Good introductory studies. There is much I do not know ( in another thread I’m realizing that about Christian History also), but I keep an open mind. Emery says he’s studied for decades the original language of the New Testament, Greek. I can’t translate a word so who am I to say he’s wrong !! How about the rest of you ??

        Skywatcher say a JW can’t save anyone !! Let’s leave that up to Jesus to decide .

        and yes Skywatcher and maybe Dan you both need to ease up.

        GOD Bless all of you .

        • Dan

          Jim, if Jesus is also Michael; there is no cross and there is no trinity. We should have a peaceful conversation; I

          agree but to what end and what would be the point? My guess is you’re still searching Jim and that’s fine. I have

          no problem with questioning GOD but with the JW faith you’ve stepped off the reservation and crossed over into

          something else that doesn’t belong here. Do I really need to explain this to you? I’ve suggested we ignore emery and

          we should; so lets!

        • Skywatcher

          Jim Eckland, there would be no need to fear for Emery’s physical safety; you should be more concerned about his spiritual safety and assured destiny. He says he studied for decades, and again, I say, you don’t know that for sure because you probably don’t know him personally. If he did…he most certainly DID NOT study any original manuscripts because NONE exist! That should scream volumes as to his credibility right there! Furthermore, if he had done the research and careful study as he’d have you and others believe, he’d be on our side right now, and not defending a wealthy and powerful cult!

          I have studied God’s Word (KJV) for over 50 years; I’ve researched various translators and translations; read many exegetical papers and books on the HOLY BIBLE, where it came from and how we got it. After careful examination and scrutiny, I ALWAYS end up coming right back to the King James Version of the Holy Bible. I DO NOT call or consider myself an expert, but I HAVE READ THE FINDINGS OF THE REAL EXPERTS and Emery is not one of them!

          Jim, I don’t mean to sound rude or arrogant, but how could you or anybody else take a cult that was only started a little over a century ago, and give it preeminence over the Judaic Scriptures (O.T.) which are thousands of years old, and the very basis for Christianity? That just doesn’t make sense on numerous levels. Then, when you look at the criminal aspects of their founders, scams and false prophecies that have come out of the Watch Tower Society, how can you even dare to give them ANY credibility? God’s Word states that if the words of a prophet do NOT come to pass, that prophet is to be stoned to death! If such were being practiced today (AND IT SHOULD BE), we wouldn’t have the WTS, JW’s, Mormons, Seventh Day Adventists and many others! Truth wouldn’t be quite so hard to find, and you and I wouldn’t be having this discussion.

          All these folk are very nice people, for the most part, and I would never want to take that away from them, however, I’m sure you will agree with me, MANY NICE PEOPLE are still going to Hell and ultimately, into the lake of fire. Why? Eph. 2: 8, 9 states,

          “For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the GIFT of God: Not of works lest any man should boast.” (emphasis mine, as always) Notice…salvation is a “gift”…something that doesn’t have to be worked for/earned!

          II Tim. 1: 9 states, “Who (Christ) hath saved us, and called us with an holy calling, not according to our works, but according to his own purpose and grace, which was given us in Christ Jesus before the world began.

          Titus 3: 5-7 further confirms that salvation is free: “Not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to his mercy he saved us, by the washing of regeneration, and renewing of the Holy Ghost: Which he shed on us abundantly through Jesus Christ our Saviour; That being justified by his grace, we should be made heirs according to the hope of eternal life.”

          JW’s are taught they have to work for their salvation, and by doing so, they make the WTS that much richer! I have a good neighbor right next door and he’s JW; a lovely man! I went over for a visit one evening and I caught him drinking alcohol. It shocked me, and he went on to tell me that if any of them at the “Hall” knew about it, he’d “have to go out canvassing door to door, as punishment”!

          Jim, may I gently encourage you to be careful whom you study God’s Word with, and to do your homework on the JW’s! There’s much online, and it’s NOT “lies”, as Emery would have you and others to believe. It’s the truth, but they cannot make converts if they admit to it, nor does the WTS even allow them to look at anything that they haven’t published themselves. Why do you suppose that is?

          I’m so glad you asked! When they dare to look to the left or to the right, they may inadvertently stumble upon the truth of God’s REAL Word, and be led astray. They might even see the credible stories of the crimes that various leaders of their society were caught up in, and become dismayed,therefore, affecting the bottom line of the WTS! These poor lovely people are being deceived and fleeced of their time, money, skills, etc., and according to God’s Word, going to Hell as payment. Rom. 6: 23, “The wages of sin is death, but the GIFT of God is eternal life through Christ Jesus our Lord.”

          It’s very obvious that you are a seeker and not a born again Christian. If you were the latter, those things that upset the HOLY SPIRIT of God would also upset you. Therefore, Dan, myself, and others CANNOT “ease up’, nor do any of us take our directives from YOU. However, we do take them very seriously; our souls depend upon God’s Word, which is truth. Souls of thousands depend upon us being faithful to God and His word, standing up for Him, even if it means dying for Him.

          We don’t rely upon brainwashing to win converts; we speak the truth and He does the rest. We catch ’em and He cleans them!

          I hope you have a better understanding now, as to where we stand and why we do. You believe we’re warring with and attacking Emery; we’re not. We’re warring against the demon of deception that he’s hosting!

          • Jim Eckland

            Alright Skywalker….perhaps you could answer a question for me:

            How can one enter the Kingdom of GOD....get saved... or attain Salvation according to Christian

            Beliefs? By the way what is your name?

            Thanks,

            Jim E.

        • Skywatcher

          Hi there, Jim! Please forgive me for taking so long to get back to you! Work got in the way. According to the Holy Bible, salvation is a very easy thing for us; it wasn’t so easy for Christ, as He died a most excruciatingly painful death, bearing our sins.

          The jailor in Acts 16:30 asked the same question, “…Sirs, what must I do to be saved? 31. And they said, Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ and thou shalt be saved, and thy house.”

          From here on out, when I say, “Bible”, I’m ALWAYS referring to the KJV, just so you know. When Adam and Eve sinned (disobedience to God) in the Garden of Eden, there was a major change in their spirit and bodies. Their one-to-one fellowship with God was severed because they had died spiritually. Their physical bodies began the aging and dying process. Mankind was now deserving of God’s divine and unstoppable wrath. God then implemented a temporary sacrificial system which was later greatly enhanced as shown in the Book of Leviticus.

          This sacrificial system was a type or foreshadow of Jesus Christ, the Lamb of God, who would be sacrificed for the salvation of mankind. Exodus 12: 13 is a clear picture of Christ’s sacrifice on the cross of Calvary. Fast forward to the N.T…

          John the Baptist introduces Christ as the Lamb of God, who would be taking away the sins of the world. Christ began His ministry which lasted for three short years, and during that time, He told Nicodemus (John 3: 5-7) that he couldn’t enter the Kingdom of God without being born again of the water (The Word/Christ/ John 1: 1), and of the Holy Spirit.

          John 3: 16, 17 tell us, “For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. 17. For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world: but that the world through him might be saved.”

          To take advantage of this offer of God’s love, we must recognize that we are sinners. Rom. 3: 23 says, “For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God.” Rom. 6; 23 says, “For the wages of sin is death’ but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.”

          Those verses tell us that we are ALL sinners, not only destined to die physically, but also spiritually…eternal separation from God! On our own, we could not bridge the huge gulf that our sinful nature and sin put between us and God. Because God is pure and unconditional love (I John 4: 8, 9), He made a way that we could be reconciled unto Himself. God saw the need before the foundation of the world was laid, and Christ (the second Person in the Trinity) agreed to come to earth to pay the price and to reunite us to God, the Father.

          Romans 5: 6 says, “Christ died for the ungodly. 7. For scarcely for a righteous man will one die: yet peradventure for a good man some would even dare to die. 8. But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. 9. Much more than, being now justified by his blood, we shall be saved from wrath through him. For if, when we were enemies, we were reconciled to God by the death of his Son, much more, being reconciled, we shall be saved by his life.”

          Christ alone (John 14:6) has made atonement for our sins, so that our fellowship with God, the Father could be restored. Remember the breakdown in Eden I mentioned earlier?

          O.K., we know we are sinners and in dire need of a Savior, and Christ came to earth on a mission, to do just that, as we see in the crucifixion, burial and resurrection of Christ, summed up in Philippians 2: 5-11.
          How can we apply that blood to ourselves?

          John 1:10 says, “He (Christ) was in the world, and the world was made by him, and the world knew him not. 11. He came unto his own (Jews), and his own received him not. 12. But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become sons of God, even to them that believe on his name: 13. Which were born not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.

          WE need to receive Him!

          Verse 13, is known as the spiritual rebirth, which happens immediately when we confess our sins to God (I John 1:9) and we invite Jesus Christ into our life (heart) to be our Savior and Lord. The word, “Lord” means Master. It is at this time that we commit to live the rest of our lives for Him, and that we trust Him for our salvation, and the eternal home He promised us in John 14: 3, and fulfillment of all other promises He has made to us in His Word.

          At this time, we are actually entering into a covenant with God: we give Him our lives and He gives us eternal life! It’s just that simple. However, the harder part is living for Him from day to day in these bodies that still have the sinful nature that was activated in the Garden of Eden. He has promised in His Word to help us with that!

          God also saw that need before the foundations of the world were laid, so He provided the Holy Spirit who convicts us of our sin and our need for the Savior in the first place. When we start to “go outside the lines” of God’s will, He nudges our spirit from within, warning and attempting to correct us. In effect, the Holy Spirit becomes our Shepherd; He is the embodiment of Jesus Christ in Spirit, within our bodies, which are then called the “temple of the Holy Spirit, I Cor. 6: 19. He lets us know in our conscience when we are about to yield to temptation 9(sin). He also makes us feel guilty after we do! That is one of His tools used to bring us back into fellowship with the Father.

          The Holy Spirit is our Guide, and He empowers and enables us to live victoriously, and to be good witnesses for Him. As we grow in Christ, fruit (Godly characteristics) follow, as seen in Gal. 5: 22, 23.

          As Christians, we still sin, but hopefully, because of our love and devotion to Christ, we sin less! When we invite Christ into our lives as Savior, sin no longer has anymore power or control over us. We are no longer under condemnation, but restoration. As children of God, when we do sin, we can sincerely confess and repent of that sin, meaning, to turn away from living that lifestyle or doing that thing which we know displeases our God. God will forgive us every time when we ask, but we must be sincere and playing games with Him!

          Rather than write a whole book, which I believe I could do, I will trust this will give you more than enough to get started on a mighty exciting journey in Life, until He calls you home!

          A sinner’s prayer of commitment doesn’t have to be long, but it must be sincere! Tell Him that you recognize that you are a sinner and that you need Jesus Christ to be your Savior. If you do it on your own, take your time, and confess your sins to Him. Give Him all the garbage of your life, anything that comes between you and God. Tell Him you are sorry for your sins, and then ask Him to forgive you of those sins and He will! Invite Him to come into your life to be your Savior and to be your Lord (Master). Ask Him to make you one of His dear children and He will. Thank Him, for hearing and answering your prayer. Thank Him for making you one of His dear children! At this point, you have transitioned from being merely one of His creation, to being one of His children!

          Always end your prayer by saying, “in Jesus’ name, amen.” It’s not a bad thing to start your prayer with something like, “Father, I come to you in Jesus’ name, and then immediately follow that with praise and thanksgiving. Follow that with your needs and petitions.

          I could give you more Scripture references to reinforce what I just said in the last two paragraphs, but Jim, I must be honest with you…it is 11:45 p.m. and I’m exhausted. I’m sorry! 🙂 That doesn’t usually happen to me when I’m in ministry like this.

          Ask Him each day, to give you the strength and the courage that you need to trust Him and to live for Him.

          So you see, Jim, one doesn’t have to jump through a bunch of hoops or do any works to have salvation. As I shared with you last time, it is a free gift for us; Christ paid the ultimate price! It cost Him His all.

          Who qualifies for this free gift? I’M SO GLAD YOU ASKED! “Whosoever will”!

          I trust this will end your quest for eternal life and a wonderful relationship with the LORD JESUS CHRIST here and now! I’ve had Him in my life for over 50 years and I wouldn’t trade Him for all the wealth or fame in the world!

          I trust you will make the right choice and invite Him in. Let me give you a little sneak peek into what you can expect from Him, “But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him.” I Cor. 2: 9

          Jim, if you have made the decision to accept Christ and to live for Him, please let us know! That’s really something to celebrate! See: Rom: 10: 9, 10, 11! Then look up Luke 15: 7, 10.

          God bless you Jim, as you seek the pearl of great price!

          • Jim Eckland

            Skywatcher,

            Thank you very much for your time. I was hoping for a short answer. Can I sum it up as:

            “Repent”,( change course in my life and follow the Lord’s Teachings) , and believe that Jesus

            sacrificed himself for our sins so that we could appear with the Righteousness of Jesus at

            the time of our Judgement?

            Does that pretty much sum it up?

            Thank you very much. Didn’t intend for you to burn “The Night Oil”.

        • Skywatcher

          Jim, I didn’t mind burning the “night oil”! I went to great lengths because I knew you would not be the only one reading my reply. Someone else may receive Jesus Christ as a result of your simple question! Wouldn’t that be something?!

          That was a great summation! That did’t take you nearly as long as I. I’ve been “cursed” with a new keyboard a couple of days ago, and what a horrible time I’m having trying to get used to it! The keys are too close together, and having been taught typing in school, I don’t look at my keys. It makes it ever so difficult because the shift key is too close to the Caps Lock key, and it takes four times as long to type up a paragraph. I must be getting used to it because it took me less than a minute to type this! Praise the Lord!

          So, am I to understand that you are already a born again believer in Jesus Christ, and that you were playing the devil’s advocate???? 🙂 Enjoy your weekend!

          You had asked for my name. I was hoping you could tell me; I’m getting so forgetful these days! 🙂 Although, I must admit, not as bad since my beloved siblings in Christ online here, have been praying for me in this regard! Thanks, brothers and sisters in Christ! 🙂

    • Skywatcher

      Brother Dan, that was a great response until the very last word! You said in your last post, “We’re all watching you Emery and

      waiting and praying for you to stop struggling but until then you’re dangerous to some of us who would listen to

      you and I simply will not.

      Blessings”

      BLESSINGS?! I know you made a mistake there! You have a heart that is full of God’s love, and blessing can come so easy to us and we want to pass it on. See I Jn. 10, 11! May I lovingly say, “Take that blessing back, Dan! Renounce it”? I don’t want to see you get hurt. 🙂

  • Dan

    Well there you have it Emery. You and I have nothing in common . The doctrine you choose to believe is not

    Christianity. This is only one point but the fact that you do not believe Jesus to be who he is is the gap that only

    gets wider as we both try to communicate. You said that you have studied scripture for 45 yrs prior to becoming a JW

    This is interesting as I too seek to understand GOD and I am not frightened to approach my creator with questions as to

    what and why none of this makes any sense. Through my years of seeking I now understand that GOD has already answered

    us and only lets us continue with our nonsense ‘ just like a father would do with an infant.

    • Emery Richards

      Dan;
      On the contrary, we have much in common. We are both God’s creations, and He desires all, including you and me, to attain to repentance. The doctrine I believe is DEFINATELY Christianity, it’s NOT Christendom’s doctrines however. They’re not actually Christian. They’re counterfeit copies of Christianity. To make such a copy is to CHANGE the original from which it copies poorly. I definately believe Jesus to be who he is, and I UNDERSTAND who he is. It’s your understanding of him that does not conform to what God’s word says who he is.

    • Skywatcher

      Dan, I’m convinced…if we can just get a couple of drops of “Preparation H” on this Emery cat, he’ll bubble up, burst, and run off with the rest of his religious truth-twistings and our itch will be over! 🙂 Blessings, Bro!

    As I watched the youtube video of who was praying for Donald Trump it surprised me to see Robert Jeffress right next to him. He is a very strong believing Baptist preacher. Yes, David Jeremiah was praying also. Everyone was praying and bowing their heads EXCEPT DONALD! You can’t expect him to feel the Holy Spirit amongst them though. Also there was Rabbi Schneider. Very surprising group of ministers.

THEY’RE POLITICIANS. Jesus taught, REPEATEDLY, that Christians are to be “no part of the world”, and voting and involving in politics, IS BEING PART OF THE WORLD.

    Any self-proclaimed “Christian” that would vote for a man who said he could murder someone and his supporters would still vote for him, who called his opponent a p$$y and a lying baby, who said he wouldn’t really side with Israel and would be neutral with the Palestinians – though said the opposite a couple days later, who said he would like to have sex with his daughter if she wasn’t his daughter, who said he would love to beat up a protester at his rally, who has casinos with nude showgirls, who used imminent domain to try to steal a little old lady’s house to build a parking lot, who lies constantly, who talks like a bully, who is clearly a sexist . . . you are worthy of being judged as a faker who doesn’t know Christ with any real conviction. Shame on you. You want a strongman, a fascist. The ends justify the means, right?

    Kenneth Copeland is a huckster. Jeffress and Falwell Jr. should be ashamed. This is great because you see who the people with real values and convictions are and who the totalitarians are. The latter just wants to win and happily compromises their principles.

    The last days of the last days are clearly here. Pray for America. May the wheat and tares continue to be separated.

      Steven Gray,

      Great post. but many do not see themselves at fault. They seem to think they know better than God the type of leader he wants elected and are willing to “help” him put this man in office.. The United States is under judgment and this kind of irrational support for SIN is why. May God have Mercy On Us.

  • nancy

    Whoever it is that ends up being our next President, I have full Faith that it is Gods will. I’m just anxious to watch God’s hand in the next coming years. Everything moves for the good of the Body of Christ…they WILL do His Will, regardless of who they are…Trump is a mountain, not one which can’t be lowered in due season….our country has become a Valley, not one which cannot be exhaulted. God’s Will be done. 🙂

    • Emery Richards

      Nancy;
      It is MOST CERTAINLY NOT God’s will, whoever it is that ends up being our next president. To begin with, God does NOT INVOLVE HIMSELF IN THE AFFAIRS OF MAN while Satan is still ruling our world. AND Jesus, GOD’S ONLY BEGOTTEN SON, taught his apostles and disciples to be “no part of the world”, meaning NO INVOLVEMENT IN POLITICS, war, desires of the world, machinations of the world, works of the flesh, and so on. The governments exist as God’s ARRANGEMENT because without them, there would be even more chaos, but He does NOT want ANY real Christian (meaning someone who is Christian, but is NOT part of any religion of the world) involved in any way in politics or the other things He mentioned. No politician will EVER do God’s will, since they are already disobeying Him by being involved in politics. NO politician is honest either, from ANY political party, NOR will they all do what they claim they will, once elected. Remember, God will TOTALLY DESTROY all governments, religions, those who participate in either, and all militaries, those who ruin the Earth, and those who oppose God, or Jesus in any way, in the Final Battle, and the tribulation just before that battle. A careful study of God’s word shows this VERY CLEARLY.

    • Peter Pistol

      Nancy, please don’t swallow anything that Emery Richards is telling you! He’s a J.W.! You can get better theology from a bubble gum machine! They won’t get involved in politics, wars, elections, etc., but they sure do NOT mind collecting SS, welfare, using our hospitals, etc.! That’s just a whole lot more than hypocritical to me!

  • Char

    Skywatcher, I vouch for you in being a kind, compassionate, caring believer as opposed to the unbeliever (Emery). Did you see the blistering comment he sent me? Said my head is pointed so I should wear a hat….hilarious! He’s like a bad addiction that we keep coming back to. I told him he’s like a wart that gets under our skin and won’t go away. He’s our nightmare…..well, hopefully someday, the poor fella will humble himself before the Lord and see that the JW’s are just a cult (hopefully before it’s too late for him, that is).

  • Skywatcher

    Char, it is better to have a pointed head that holds your crowns on, then to go believe one is wearing the right hat, only to find they had been brainwashed and duped all along!

  • numan

    Geoffrey Grider wrote, “Ted Cruz is a slick and smooth politician who will “go along to get along”, and have no problem playing the game. He says he is a born again Christian, yet he associates with Laodicean bottom feeders like Kenneth Copeland and Jesse Duplantis who he had “pray over him” and “anoint him” to be president.”

    Geoffrey, you obviously are not a Texas who is aware that Ted Cruz HAS WITHSTOOD VICIOUS SLANDEROUS ATTACKS AND IS NOT A SLICK AND SMOOTH POLITICIAN WHO WILL GO ALONG TO GET ALONG LIKE YOUR NEW MONEY CENTERED MESSIAH, TRUMP! You must have JUST woke up long enough to “drink the kool-aid” of Trump’s propaganda. Trumps history has been to BUY THE LEFTIST POLITICIANS!! AND YOU DISPARAGE THAT SOMEONE PRAYED OVER TED???…AT LEAST THE LAODICEANS DESERVED RECEIVING A LETTER FROM THE LORD!! You said about Ted, “He says his a a born again Christian”???? WHO ARE YOU TO MAKE THAT KIND OF FOREST IN THE EYE STATEMENT, BUDDY??… ALL JUST TO MAKE AN EXCUSE FOR YOUR PROMOTING A PONO-PROVIDING HOTELS/GAMBLING-HOUSES OWNER, PUBLICLY FILTHY TALKING PHILANDERING ADULTERER WHO YOU ADMIT IS USING “CHURCHY” WORDS TO ROOK CHRISTIANS?? You will know them by their fruit, and brother, you’re eating ROTTEN FRUIT!! You are WRONG when you said, “we’re not electing a preacher”…A country’s leadership character is a reflection of the people that put them there, and when the Bride of Christ stops being the salt in a society, then it becomes rotten and God THROW IT OUT! You stated, “DONALD TRUMP WILL GIVE THE ELITES AND THE ESTABLISHMENT ABSOLUTE FITS FROM HIS FIRST DAY IN OFFICE, AND I FIND THAT PROSPECT VERY SATISFYING.” That’s the mentality of a irresponsible teen-age punk and not a mature, Spirit led Christian voter. Liquid will put out a fire, but that doesn’t mean you should pour gasoline on it!!…and then you quoted, “Righteousness exalteth a nation: but sin is a reproach to any people.” Proverbs 14:34 (KJV)??? That was very disjointed! In light of the title of you website (Now The End Begins), the whole endorsement seems disjointed for someone you would think would be aware of the end-time characteristics.

  • Acts2:38

    Mr. Copeland has just proved himself to be a false prophet when Ted Cruz does not become the next President.

  • Sam Thomas

    I agree with the author. I believe that God has brought an “outsider” to rescue this nation from the present condition. God did this in the past. He had chosen “Cyrus”, a non-Jew, an outsider for the rescue of Jewish people. So, I think, God brought Donald Trump to lead this country at a time like this. He has a very strong stand again certain important issues this country is facing. He is not perfect, he has flaws… but as the author pointed out we are not electing a Pastor, but a leader for this country. We, as Christians, ought to pray for his safety and opening his spiritual eyes that he may realize the need for a Savior.

    • Skywatcher

      Sam Thomas, I definitely agree with you, however, if Trump has been watching any of the foolish religious rituals and prophecies re: Ted Cruz becoming president, I would imagine he’d have none of that! One never knows for sure though! I’ve led guys to Christ whom I thought wouldn’t have the slightest interest in godly things… DT definitely needs the prayers of the real blood-bought and born again Christians!

      • Skywatcher

        I wonder what the charismatic clowns are saying now, seeing their anointed candidate didn’t fulfill their “God-given” prophecy! In the O.T. days, these clueless wonders would’ve been stoned at this point…for the false prophets that they ARE! God will see to it that they are rewarded accordingly: Mt. 7: 20-23.

    • Seth

      Could be … maybe a Cyrus … or maybe a Nebuchadnezzar. It’s hard telling.

  • liz48

    The ESTABLISHMENT IN RELIGION has to be DESTROYED!

    Donald Trump is the natural sign of that spiritual reality!

    • Emery

      Liz;
      Spiritualism, and religion, are opposites. NO religion is approved of by God, and NO religion teaches God’s word in it’s entirety, or truthfully. ALL religions lie all the time. God’s word is the only truth.

  • Seth

    Trump puts his name on everything (think Trump towers) … I wonder if President, if he will put his name in our foreheads.

  • CHAR

    Well, remember what happened to Nebuchadnezzur because of his pride and arrogance and Trump does have those two personality traits and his hair is kinda like Nebuchadnezzur’s. He could make it look feathery very easily. Just kidding. It’s a thought though that God could use him in the same way if he’s elected.

  • Parrot

    Geoffrey Grider:
    I just had never listened to you preach and wonder what you preach. It worries me when a preacher calls other preachers (like Kenneth Copeland & Jesse Duplantis) names for doctrinal reasons.

    Therefore leaving the principles of the doctrine of Christ, let us go on unto perfection; not laying again the foundation of repentance from dead works, and of faith toward God,
    Of the doctrine of baptisms, and of laying on of hands, and of resurrection of the dead, and of eternal judgment.

    Hebrews 6:1, Hebrews 6:2

    It appears you are the only Christian/ preacher who is doing it right. Will you be the only Christian/ preacher in heaven? Heaven will definitely be a lonely place for you should you be the only one. I am not sure you have a record of Christians you have personally led to Jesus and mentored them. I am sure Kenneth Copeland and Jesse Duplantis exploits and records in the kingdom runs into millions and yet you think they are working for Satan and you are the only true preacher. The Bible is too big for any preacher to claim to preach it all.
    Prophet Joel talked about each one of us staying on our callings.

    Neither shall one thrust another; they shall walk every one in his path: and when they fall upon the sword, they shall not be wounded. Joel 2:8

    I am not sure you know exactly what you are called to preach.

    The voice said, Cry. And he said, What shall I cry? ..: -Isaiah 40:6

    Isaiah knew exactly what he was called to cry about. Therefore, if you are called to preach salvation – stay there. If you are called to preach healing – stay there. If Kenneth Copeland and Jesse Duplantis were called to preach prosperity – leave them alone and stay on your job.
    We are only responsible to the one who called us and not to any man.

    If you are a Bible believer – think on scriptures such as this and just stay on your job (kingdom assignment):

    Saying, Touch not mine anointed, and do my prophets no harm. -Psalms 105:15

  • Mark

    Weak, weak arguments … BUT rather than try to convince anyone with my words, which will quickly be dismissed as a “Trump hater” “liberal demorat” or many of the other names I’ve been called, I’ll let G-d do the talking. This is from Exodus chapter 18. G-d gives 5 specific things for Moses to look for in a leader. Please ask yourself how many of these Trump fulfills

    And Moses’ father in law said unto him, The thing that thou doest is not good.
    Thou wilt surely wear away, both thou, and this people that is with thee: for this thing is too heavy for thee; thou art not able to perform it thyself alone. Hearken now unto my voice, I will give thee counsel, and God shall be with thee: Be thou for the people to God-ward, that thou mayest bring the causes unto God:

    And thou shalt teach them ordinances and laws, and shalt shew them the way wherein they must walk, and the work that they must do.

    Moreover thou shalt provide out of all the people able men, such as fear God, men of truth, hating covetousness; and place such over them, to be rulers of thousands, and rulers of hundreds, rulers of fifties, and rulers of tens:

    And let them judge the people at all seasons: and it shall be, that every great matter they shall bring unto thee, but every small matter they shall judge: so shall it be easier for thyself, and they shall bear the burden with thee.

    If thou shalt do this thing, and God command thee so, then thou shalt be able to endure, and all this people shall also go to their place in peace.

    One final note, and it’s a link. This is Trump’s “spiritual advisor” Paula White, who encourages women to watch PORN so they can get some ideas on how to “spice up” their marriages. Here she is proudly cooing about how she uses her “lips and hips” for G-d.

    • Emery

      John 15:17 “These things I command you, that you love one another. 18 If the world hates you, you know that it has hated me before it hated you. 19 If you were part of the world, the world would be fond of what is its own. Now because you are no part of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, for this reason the world hates you

      John 17:15 “I do not request that you take them out of the world, but that you watch over them because of the wicked one. 16 They are no part of the world, just as I am no part of the world. 17 Sanctify them by means of the truth; your word is truth. 18 Just as you sent me into the world, I also sent them into the world. 19 And I am sanctifying myself in their behalf, so that they also may be sanctified by means of truth.

      Sure looks like Jesus said to be “no part of the world”. That means remaining COMPLETELY NEUTRAL regarding ANYTHING to do with the world and it’s machinations, INCLUDING politics.

      The institutions that govern human society may pressure citizens to take sides in conflicts that arise. True Christians cannot do so. We do not participate in the political controversies of this world; nor do we take up arms. (Matt. 26:52) We are not swayed by efforts to involve us in exalting any portion of Satan’s world over another. (2 Cor. 2:11) Being no part of the world, we rise above worldly rivalries.—Read John 15:18, 19.

      If you are ever in doubt as to how you ought to behave in any given situation, it would be wise to ask yourself, ‘What would Jesus have done?’ The nation in which Jesus lived was made up of people from various regions—Judea, Galilee, Samaria, and others. Bible accounts reveal that there were tensions between people of these different areas. (John 4:9) Tensions also existed between Pharisees and Sadducees (Acts 23:6-9), between the people and the tax collectors (Matt. 9:11), and between those who had received a Rabbinic education and those who had not. (John 7:49) In the first century, Israel was ruled by the Romans, whose presence was deeply resented by the local people. While Jesus championed religious truth and acknowledged that salvation originated with the Jews, he never encouraged his disciples to foster rivalries. (John 4:22) On the contrary, he urged them to love all men as their neighbor.—Luke 10:27.

      Regardless of where we live, we conscientiously obey the law. Yet we endeavor to remain politically neutral. This is because we observe Jesus’ direction for Christians to be “no part of the world.” Thus we do not take part in political issues and activities or support warfare. (John 15:19; 17:16)

  • Kat

    I will not preach but we have a choice a hard choice…..Hillary or Trump. Neither are good Christians and both lack good qualities. So choose the candidate who has broke the fewest commandments. Trump never was a part of murder.

    • Emery

      Kat;
      No, neither are Christians. Neither is ANYONE who has any participation at all in politics, since Jesus commanded us to be “no part of the world”, meaning no part in politics, government, wars, desires of the world, and so on.

      As far as “broke the fewest commandments” goes, dead is dead. The punishment for sin is death. Break God’s commands, and you’ve sinned. Therefore, death is the result. Breaking many, as opposed to breaking one, is STILL DEAD. One cannot be more dead. And political involvement, is sinning, and results in death. For the politician, and for the voter and anyone else involved in the political process.

  • 01e1ngvar

    Bible believer will be aside from any kind of politics, because he is patrial of Heavenly Kingdom. Trump, Clinton – same lodge, just different faces.

    MUST SEE! TRUMP IS ILLUMINATI (SAME AS OBAMA OR HILLARY)

  • Emery, you said, “And political involvement, is sinning, and results in death. For the politician, and for the voter and anyone else involved in the political process.”

    Then why are YOU on this site, being a part of the “political process” via discussion? Repent, man!
