Angel of Light?

Colossians 2:8 Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit . . . 2 Corinthians 11:14 And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light.

I was going to make a blog exclusively about the angel Moroni but since Joseph Smith and Mohammad’s angel show very similar traits, I am going to put them in the same page.

Many religions in this world teach, angels giving them visions. All of which they only witness by themselves. Joseph smith was the only one that saw Moroni the angel in Joseph Smiths visions. Mohamad was the only one that saw the “Gabriel”. Both claim to saw angels of light bringing the true gospel. In order to make a statement to be true in the Bible there has to be at least two witnesses. However, in all the religions that saw such visions saw them alone. (Matt. 18:16; Jn. 8:17,18; 2 Cor. 13:1)

       Matthew 18:16 But if he will not hear thee, then take with thee one or two more, that in the mouth of two or three witnesses every word may be established.

     2 Corinthians 13:1 This is the third time I am coming to you. In the mouth of two or three witnesses shall every word be established.

Deception is the key to control if you know how to make elaborate lies and make believable fallacies then you are in makings of a great cult leader. This is what most cult leaders have they not only make believable hoaxes but also preached them mixed with truth. Both Islam and Mormonism share the factor of having angels bring them the TRUE GOSPEL. Both of them claim to be from God to bring it to a new era of belief. Both brought the true gospel, or did they? The Bible says “Galatians 1:8 But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed.” This is a clear warning that there will be an angel from heaven bringing us a different gospel. In addition, we have an instruction of what to do with them, “let them be accursed”. Which means to make them a detestable, separate yourself from them.

I choose only to believe in the witnesses of Christ. The apostles, prophets and Jesus Himself. The only REAL ANGEL of Light is JESUS CHRIST, and when He ascended into heaven, He had three hundred witness to support the claim and all of which testified of His resurrection and return. Therefore, if I were to place my faith on any angel of Light, it would be in Jesus Christ alone.

       2 Corinthians 4:4 In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them.

       John 1:9 That was the true Light, which lighteth every man that cometh into the world.

The guardian of the plates Moroni is not God sent but a delusion from Satan. Every text where our King James Version has their rightful origin and all of them came from men used by God, and all of them were readily available at the time of its use. Now where are these plate?

That will be the next topic for discussion. See next time.

Christ and Lucifer, Brothers?

By Joshua T. D.R.
The L.D.S or The Church of the Latter Day Saints will not tell you this upfront but if you bother them enough they will hesitantly tell you that Christ and Lucifer are brothers. They are the eldest sons of God (Elohim). In their doctrine, the two presented their own plan of salvation. The Father preferred only Christ’s plan of salvation, so Lucifer rebelled with the third of the angels in heaven.
Sounds absurd, right? This is only one of many weird beliefs the Moron church has, and is a basis to call it a cult. A cult is someone to teach something that contradicts the teaching of pure scripture. The Moron church has a long history of weird belief all of them came from extra-biblical books that they use, namely the book of Mormon and the Pearl of Great price.
We as Bible Believing Christians should equip ourselves with the knowledge to combat such beliefs. We should be equip with a sharp Sword of the Spirit and strong shield of Faith to keep us from turning to strange doctrines and fables.
Christ has NO, brother. He is the ONLY BEGOTTEN SON OF GOD (John 1:18, 3:16). The term sons of God in the Old Testament refers to a created being that directly came from God, such as angels (Job 1:6, 2:1, 38:7, which includes Lucifer or Satan) and Adam (Luke 3:38).
In order to believe that Christ and Lucifer are brother you must first ignore the fact that Christ created, everything, through Him, and by Him (Col. 1:15-17). Christ is God and was the hand that moulded creation he is without a “spirit brother”. Although we as Christians are called “sons of God” that is altogether different because we obtain our part in God’s family by adoption (Rom. 8:15. Eph. 1:5).
In conclusion, Christ and Lucifer are NOT brothers. There is no evidence of this in scripture, but can only be taught if you use extra-biblical manuscripts. Fallacy is evident in this teaching and is therefore heresy. You now hold the truth in your hands do not let it slip out, hold it firm.

Is Jesus Christ the Only way?

image

To answer this question we must first state; what are the basis for this belief and is it logical to believe so. There are thousands of religion in the world and claims to have answers to our earthly questions. Such as “why are we on this earth?”, “what’s the purpose to life?” and religion seem to have answers. But the most common and vital inquiry is “Is there an afterlife?” or “is there a Heaven, and if there is a Heaven; how can i get there?’ All religion in he world answers these questions with the same answer. That basically you need to be good and follow the religious rituals they have. But one answer stands out, Jesus with his claims to be God incarnate said “I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me. (John 14:6 KJV)”. In another verse it says “I am the door: by me if any man enter in, he shall be saved, and shall go in and out, and find pasture. (John 10;9)” What He (Jesus Christ) is asserting here is the exclusiveness of salvation (going to heaven). That was expressed when He said “NO MAN cometh unto the Father, but by me”. Another said claims of the Bible is that Jesus is the only mediator (a go between) to God.   “For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus; (1 Tim. 2:5 KJV)”  Now all such assertion and statements was said forceful and with authority. The only question is are they true?

All the claims that Jesus Christ stated while he was here on earth. Has to be true or not. He is either God in the flesh and is the only way to heaven and no other. A common phrase from preachers is “He is either Lord, Lier, or Lunatic”. The decision is your to make. Either His claims are truth or lies.

Some would say what “what about other religion?” Does that mean they are wrong, thus their followers are going to hell? Well if all of Christ claims are true, and I believe they are the answer would be, a yes. Would I be guilty of being judgmental. No. Because I have simply stated the facts. Others would declare “Truth is relative to the religion we have” this is a common teaching of today’s society and its a false doctrine ( I would call it a doctrine of the devil). Truth will always be true. And is not subject to any view points of any religion. Relativist (People believing truth is relative) are like professors teaching 1+1=5 as true based on his view point, when it should be 1+1=2. Which I know is absurd but to their understanding is right.

Now is Jesus Christ the only way to Heaven. Positively. Yes! I will end this this passage of Scripture that will conclude why people will not accept the truth, and the exclusiveness of salvation in Christ.

2 Thessalonians 2:10-14 (KJV)  And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved. And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness. But we are bound to give thanks alway to God for you, brethren beloved of the Lord, because God hath from the beginning chosen you to salvation through sanctification of the Spirit and belief of the truth: Whereunto he called you by our gospel, to the obtaining of the glory of our Lord Jesus Christ.

Would a loving God create hell?

image

If I were to pick one doctrine in the Bible, and not teach it, that would be the doctrine of hell. But I could not but speak of the things I have seen and heard. Truth remains the same, hell is a real place. Jesus Christ preach more about hell than He did of heaven. He said, “And if thy right eye offend thee, pluck it out, and cast it from thee: for it is profitable for thee that one of thy members should perish, and not that thy whole body should be cast into hell.” Matt. 5:29, three times He said in Mark 9 “Where their worm dieth not, and the fire is not quenched.” Rev. 21:8 “But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.” The Bible is overwhelming with verses about hell and is existance but what is it for? It serves as a warning for people not to enter in such a horrible place.

Now is it reasonable for a loving God to create hell? The answer is YES, the fact that God is love, but He also a righteous God, a holy God, and good. Not creating hell would be a conflict to with His other nature. Think of it as this, would you allow Adolf Hitler, Joseph Stalin and many other dictators who have ordered genocides and have takin millions of lives, and not get the judgement they deserve for hidous crimes they have done. If you say yes that would make you the same as God. God in His goodness would not allow evil to enter into heaven. If he did he’s a god devoid of righteousness and   holiness and he is not the god of the Bible. The Doctrine of the hell is a reasonable doctrine and is the truth of the Word of God.

We deserve hell but God is love that He sent His only begotten Son. To give us a chance of forgiveness and not received that judgment that is due to us. Much like in movies where the bad guy gets what he deserves; we are the bad guys. But if given the chance to live. Hell is more real than any other place, and its fires burn for the everlasting and is never quenched. But God being rich in mercy gave us a chance to have everlasting life; that is only through the Lord Jesus Christ. He suffered the punishment that we deserve, and died so that we might live. Hell is the end result of sin; so is faith in the Lord Jesus Christ will result into everlasting life in heaven.

Is Homosexuality in the Bible?

image

A dumb excuse from people who wants to pet the sin of sodomy, “the word homosexual is not in the bible!” Yes its not there, so is the word computers and there are computers. The word homosexual didn’t came into use until 1892. If you have the right Bible its translated 1611. The AV (Authorized Version) used the term “sodomites” (refering to people of sodom which is full of abominable acts, Gen. 18-19). All around scripture that word is used.
Gen 19:5 “And they called unto Lot, and said unto him, Where are the men which came in to thee this night? bring them out unto us, that we may know them.” (emphasis added) The AV uses word “know” which in the context would mean to make physical relations. And as proof continue in verse 7&8 it says “And said, I pray you, brethren, do not so wickedly. Behold now, I have two daughters which have not known man; let me, I pray you, I bring them out unto you, and do ye to them as is good in your eyes: only unto these men do nothing; for therefore came they under the shadow of my roof. Lot sets out a bad deal with this people, he would allow his daughters to lose their purity (thats what not knowing a man meant) and have them rape his daughters; just to get the men of Sodom off the feet of his guest. The passage clearly states the atrocities these people are capable. The main reason why God destroyed the city and many other of the same degree.

The Bible also uses other terms to describe and point out how much an abomination sodomy (homosexuality, some people don’t want to called a sodomite but that’s what the bible use so I’ll use it). Example is in 1 Cor. 6:9  “…Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind” in the next verse it say’s shall not inherit the kingdom of God. Effeminacy means men acting like women. In Romans 1 which is the most definitive text God gave on the subject. It is repeatedly mentions “God gave them up”. but to what, verse 26 of Romans 1 “to vile affections”. God in his wrath gave them over to do that which the bible calls unseemly. People who does not heed to what God says will end up in this road; to which often times is hard to do a 180 turn. Continuing on the study in Romans 1:26 its “against nature” women with women, in verse 27 “their error” men with men will receive a recompense.

Homosexuality (Sodomy) is in the Bible, like we have looked through, but like many other sin it can be forgiven. Jesus Christ did not die in vain, He shed His blood so that all sin will be forgiven and taken away. Even sodomy, murder, lust, fornication, adultery and idolatry. But you have to make a decision to Repent of your sin (means to turn from your sin to God). And put your faith and trust in Jesus Christ. Receiving the Gift of everlasting life.
