Jesus Weeps Over His Church

We are living in very strange times. Jesus warned us in the last days there would be many false prophets. The Holy Spirit is the Spirit of truth and there is no deviance in Him.

My Christian background was brethren. I was in the brethren church for seven years of my Christian life. I received the finest teaching from the finest teachers and I was privileged to sit under great men of God like Lance Pibworth the 20th century John Bunyan, Professor Verna Wright of Leeds University, Dr Knight from Wrexham, Roger Carswell from Leeds, my own pastor, who is now very elderly, Pastor Paul Brown from Hanley, Stoke-on-Trent, but I thank God for these godly people whose instruction has kept me for many years, but even with after being taught by these people I still walked into error and spent between seven and eight years in false doctrine listening to false prophets.

One of my pastors once told me there is an element of truth in everything. The problem is we need to be aware of the error which leads us down the wide path to destruction. My dear old mum once said, all that glitters is not gold. As a minister of the gospel of Jesus Christ I am saddened by what I see in the west: men and women chasing after power and adoration and some of them absolutely dishonest; these snake oil salesmen from America; TV evangelists; people denying the Godhead, teaching that Jesus was just a man like any other man and received the baptism of the Holy Spirit at the Jordan; others saying that Jesus went into hell, took on demonic properties, suffered as we would suffer in hell, then was raised on the third day, when we know He said on the cross, “τετέλεσται—tetelestai—it is finished!”

My brothers and sisters, whether you believe this or not it matters not to me. Jesus suffered hell on the cross when there was darkness over the earth from the sixth hour to the ninth hour. God punished His own Son for you and for me. No human being saw the pain that my Saviour suffered on the cross, so how these charlatans can say these awful things I do not understand. If Jesus was not very God and He was not very man then we are all condemned to hell and there is no heaven; there is just hell waiting for all of us.

Why have we become so selfish? It is not about you. It is not about what you can get, a bigger house, bigger car, a better education; it is about the countless souls that will be cast into the lake of fire because the church does not care. Where has the holiness gone? Our godly women go to church dressed as harlots. What is wrong with beauty? The church looks no different from the world we live in. it has lost its godliness. We cry for revival but much of it is self-centred. Our Christian TV and radio stations pump out more and more lies.

I believe the Lord is calling the nation to repentance or we shall get what we deserve. David wrote the wonderful psalm: “Search me, O God, and see if there is any wickedness in me.” We have ministers denying the truth, accepting gay marriage, allowing our young to fornicate. I am not into religion, I am into holiness and I write this with tears in my eyes. Jesus weeps over His church. We have leaders who deny that Jesus rose from the dead bodily. We have selfish people in the church who only look after their own interests and not the interests of others. We have accepted a false gospel. We have ministers visualising cars and houses, which is no more than Buddhism, new-age teaching, predictions which is nothing more than witchcraft in the church.

Where are the spiritual fathers who will call the church back to what it should be? I thank God for people like Gino Jennings in the USA, Charles Lawson and many of our great leaders such as David Wilkerson who have gone. We have young, puffed-up ministers such as Todd White, Todd Bentley and Steve Chalke to name a few, who are nothing more than false prophets. Where are the spiritual fathers who will speak up for the truth, I wonder. Are we a nation of orphans and as Jesus said, “Will I faith on the earth?” Not word and faith, name-it, claim-it, grab-it ministries, but holy, humble, righteous men of God? Where are you? Are you like Adam, hiding?

If you feel the same as I do, broken-hearted, today, share it with others as the church was never meant to serve itself, it was called to serve others. I know there are many out there like me who feel as I do that it is time we challenged those who are not following the true and living gospel as the apostle Paul did, as the apostles did, and as many in foreign countries who are under persecution are. I plead for my nation. We are at the time, my brothers and sisters, that we got back in the battle. Forgive me if I am speaking to those who are already in the battle. You know who you are. But now is the time to pray as we have never prayed before, or billions of souls will be lost.

God bless you.

Final Warning to the Church

I greet you in the only name above heaven and earth, the Lord Jesus Christ.

Just recently, the Lord has directed me to Turning Point by Dr David Jeremiah. The month of May, he has being doing an amazing series which has blessed us mightily. We are seeing these amazing events around the world which Jesus spoke about: wars and rumours of wars, mighty fires in California, earthquakes, volcanoes, and the list goes on. The Bible says these are the birth-pangs before the end. I myself am spending a lot of time in Revelation, 1 Thessalonians 4: 15-18 and 1 Corinthians 15: 51-52.

Sadly much of the church is asleep. Pope Francis has just made a statement that Protestantism is dead and there is only one holy, catholic church. He is having major meetings with major pentecostal leaders from around the world, faith groups and the faith teachers such as Kenneth Copeland, Joyce Meyer and their entourage, which David Wilkerson spoke about, Charles Lawson is still speaking about. Many of these megachurch leaders such as Joel Osteen have kissed the ring of the Pope. Do they understand by kissing the ring they are bowing to his authority and denying the death of the martyrs from the reformation, many of which like Wycliffe and many that can be found in Foxe’s Book of Martyrs died in vain?

My brothers and sisters, we are entering into a time of major heresy when Joel Osteen can say all roads lead to God, Oprah Winfrey and Gloria Copeland state clearly that Jesus was just a man that was touched by the Holy Spirit in the Jordan. It is time that the big pentecostal movements such as the Assemblies of God and Elim, the Bible colleges of this nation and America and the TV channels such as the God Channel, Revelation TV and United Christian Broadcasters came out against these people. Where are the men of God that once told the truth? Why are they not speaking out? People like Donald Gee, Eddie Durham, George Jeffreys, Stephen Jeffreys and the founders of the Assemblies of God must be looking down from heaven and wondering what on earth is going on. The Bible says, wake up you sleepers. Sadly most of the church in the United Kingdom, the United States and the West are fast asleep and leading their congregations down a broad road. The Bible says,

“Enter through the narrow gate; for the gate is wide and the way is broad that leads to destruction, and there are many who enter through it. For the gate is small and the way is narrow that leads to life, and there are few who find it.

“Beware of the false prophets, who come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly are ravenous wolves. You will know them by their fruits. Grapes are not gathered from thorn bushes nor figs from thistles, are they? So every good tree bears good fruit, but the bad tree bears bad fruit. A good tree cannot produce bad fruit, nor can a bad tree produce good fruit. Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire. So then, you will know them by their fruits.

“Not everyone who says to Me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father who is in heaven will enter. Many will say to Me on that day, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in Your name, and in Your name cast out demons, and in Your name perform many miracles?’ And then I will declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from me, you who practise lawlessness.’”

Matthew 7: 23-33

So if you support these ministries you are enabling them to lead many astray and there could be a judgment for you too. We all know that at the end times there will be two judgments: one for believers, and whatever your theological stance is you can work that our for yourself, and the great white throne for those who reject God’s offer of full salvation and God’s gift of grace.

So, my brothers and sisters, it is time to speak up, warn our brothers and sisters of the heresy that is in the church, even though you will not be popular, but my understanding of the gospel is that the apostles were not popular. Whenever the church advances it is never popular. When it gets comfortable and sups with the devil, Lucifer leaves it alone. When you speak out for Christ you will be attacked, but as Paul said, great is your reward in heaven.

If you agree with my statements please add your comments. If you do not agree, still add your comments. But I suggest you go before the Lord, get your house in order, as the Lord is coming soon and it will be too late for those that you know and your loved ones. It is our duty to witness to them whoever they are or wherever they are. I for one will be a watchman looking for the master’s return.

God bless you.

The EU Referendum and the New World Order

Like many of you I have been praying about the forthcoming referendum.

I do believe as a born-again, Spirit-filled Christian we would be better out of the EU than in the EU. On 24 June 2016 dependent on what the British public say, we will have to live with the consequences. I have listened to a lot of fear but I am reminded in Scripture that God does not work through fear. I do believe that the body of Christ is the true government on this earth and I do believe through prayer we can change many things by God’s grace.

Reference my previous article on this issue, I still hold fast to what God told me at the beginning, that if we remain in the EU then the setting up of the new world order and the apostasy church will come soon. This can be found in 2 Thessalonians 2, which I would like you all to mediate upon, as I do believe we are very close to the second coming of Christ. I think, brethren, we need to stop looking at this world, as John Bunyan did in the 17th century, and look to the celestial city which will be our home for all eternity. Like Paul who wrote to the Thessalonian church we must always be watchful to the signs and the time that we are living in.

Now, brethren, concerning the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ and our gathering together to Him, we ask you, not to be soon shaken in mind or troubled, either by spirit or by word or by letter, as if from us, as though the day of Christ had come. Let no one deceive you by any means; for that Day will not come unless the falling away comes first, and the man of sin is revealed, the son of perdition, who opposes and exalts himself above all that is called God or that is worshiped, so that he sits as God in the temple of God, showing himself that he is God.

Do you not remember that when I was still with you I told you these things? And now you know what is restraining, that he may be revealed in his own time. For the mystery of lawlessness is already at work; only He who now restrains will do so until He is taken out of the way. And then the lawless one will be revealed, whom the Lord will consume with the breath of His mouth and destroy with the brightness of His coming. The coming of the lawless one is according to the working of Satan, with all power, signs, and lying wonders, and with all unrighteous deception among those who perish, because they did not receive the love of the truth, that they might be saved. And for this reason God will send them strong delusion, that they should believe the lie, that they all may be condemned who did not believe the truth but had pleasure in unrighteousness.

But we are bound to give thanks to God always for you, brethren beloved by the Lord, because God from the beginning chose you for salvation through sanctification by the Spirit and belief in the truth, to which He called you by our gospel, for the obtaining of the glory of our Lord Jesus Christ. Therefore, brethren, stand fast and hold the traditions which you were taught, whether by word or our epistle.

Now may our Lord Jesus Christ Himself, and our God and Father, who has loved us and given us everlasting consolation and good hope by grace, comfort your hearts and establish you in every good word and work.

2 Thessalonians 2. Scripture taken from the New King James Version®. Copyright © 1982 by Thomas Nelson. Used by permission. All rights reserved.

So in the words of our Lord Jesus Christ through the apostle Paul, let us continue in the work that the Lord has given us to bring precious souls from darkness to light. As we consider how to vote on Thursday let us do the right thing as believers. I would be as bold to say vote to leave.

May the grace of God be with us all as we make this big decision which will change the nature of our country forever.
