The Biblical God of creation wants all, regardless of economic or social status to understand HIS word(s), to gain the discernment that ONLY comes FROM and THROUGH His Spirit’s indwelling, empowering and sustaining believers when we walk in Him and His ways. That’s ALL of grace and has NOTHING to do with who we are, and is only a small part of what His grace does and helps us to see and understand.
There is NO degree, educational system nor denominational ascendancy or hierarchy that can help you gain or earn God’s Grace, discernment or obtain more of it!
ALL who believe can have eternal life, and ALL who believe can have understanding. I am curious to know (and this is more of a question for self reflection, not reply)if those who are Jesus’ Words Only or of some similar belief, would view the Bible differently if they understood it as having One author, the Holy Spirit? How would change their initial perception and how they spiritually approached the Bible? What would happen if they decided (because it is a decision) to look for HIS SPIRITUAL hand, HIS authorship, HIS pen, HIS thread (very much like the “scarlet thread of redemption”) that runs through the Bible instead of the human hands that were used to pen it?
What would happen if those who believed in “Jesus’ Words Only”, sought to seek and glorify the divine wisdom and inspiration that runs deep through the Bible, rather than the limited “wisdom” that runs through their own minds and doctrine, that puffs up, exalts self and gives them senses of accomplishment?
I can not say where people’s journeys began. They may have started with the best of intentions, being spiritually sound or in the flesh. Maybe they started off with a bone to pick with overall Christian doctrine, therefore, just like Jewish doctrine teaches, if you character assassinate Paul, the authority and authorship of the biblical writings attributed to him, you can allow Satan to put doubt into the mind of Christians (while simultaneously deterring seekers and empowering atheists and those who hate Christ and Christians), the validity of ALL New Testament doctrine.
But that only works if you idolize the human authors and not the REAL hand behind them. The divine inspiration that moved their spirits to ministry, lives of holiness and pen.
1 Corinthians 3:4-7
For while one saith, I am of Paul; and another, I am of Apollos; are ye not carnal? 5 Who then is Paul, and who is Apollos, but ministers by whom ye believed, even as the Lord gave to every man? 6 I have planted, Apollos watered; but God gave the increase. 7 So then neither is he that planteth any thing, neither he that watereth; but God that giveth the increase.
What I can say is that there is a discernible spirit, a worldly one of pride and arrogance that runs through the authors and proponents of the Jesus Only types.
I have sadly witnessed it time and again.
Too many times in my over thirty year walk with Christ have I seen Christian authors, Evangelists, Ministers, Pastors, Preachers and those operating in the prophetic, some who I may have looked up to and admired at some point in time, who start off in the Spirit only to allow the devil to seep in through pride and/or some other fleshly desire.
What used to be preached or written in love for Christ and the truth of God’s word and/or love for the spirit and life of believers, become laced and entangled with arrogance. The pride in what “they accomplished” swells their spirit and exalts them, rather than swelling the Spirit of God, exalting Him. Dark narcissistic hearts and mindsets takes hold, blinding them to any truth that may seem to contradict their knowledge what they hold dear.
It is for this reason we see and understand the importance and ABSOLUTE necessity of staying grounded in His word and Spirit. Our salvation, perception and how we navigate this life depends on it. The Holy Spirit instructs us through Paul when we read :
1 Corinthians 2:4-8
And my speech and my preaching was not with enticing words of man's wisdom, but in demonstration of the Spirit and of power: 5 That your faith should not stand in the wisdom of men, but in the power of God. 6 Howbeit we speak wisdom among them that are perfect: yet not the wisdom of this world, nor of the princes of this world, that come to nought: 7 But we speak the wisdom of God in a mystery, even the hidden wisdom, which God ordained before the world unto our glory: 8 Which none of the princes of this world knew: for had they known it, they would not have crucified the Lord of glory.
What’s so ironic and important to note is one of the ways Satan was able to use the Jewish leaders to whip the Jews into a frenzy, condemning and crucifying Christ, was through THEIR wisdom, which was centered around their worldly sense of accomplishments, culminating in arrogance and hatred. Not only was it because of their pride in who they were Nationally (Christ countered this: Matthew 3:9 And think not to say within yourselves, We have Abraham to our father: for I say unto you, that God is able of these stones to raise up children unto Abraham.), and who they were socially, which Christ STRONGLY addresses as well in Matthew 23:1-36 , in which he says:
Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye are like unto whited sepulchres, which indeed appear beautiful outward, but are within full of dead men's bones, and of all uncleanness. 28 Even so ye also outwardly appear righteous unto men, but within ye are full of hypocrisy and iniquity.
We still see the sin of what Christ condemned with the Jews playing out in the world today, especially within Israel and America! The subjugation of peoples based on a propagation of propaganda, false notions and outright lies and deceptions of who the people of God are? Neither riches nor poverty, race, education or lack of one will give you standing with God, nor take it away.
Our identity, meaning, sense of self and perception is because of who God says we are, not man, so it should be on HIM we depend for strength and esteem. Our understanding of scripture and who He is, is also through Him and not our own merit.
Then Peter opened his mouth, and said, Of a truth I perceive that God is no respecter of persons: 35 But in every nation that fears him, and work righteousness, is accepted with him.

They profess that they know God; but in works they deny him, being abominable, and disobedient, and unto every good work reprobate.
- This is not talking about programs and contributions that you or your church organization make (only for most to claim it at the end of the year to receive it back) as part of their "normal" contributions. No, this is speaking to those who profess Christ, but the actions from their hearts are contrary to Christ-likeness. This has become more and more obvious, and in 2018 its just beyond sad the anger and hatred some have toward others and have been empowered to demonstrate. This anger is not from those confessing Christ directed toward those who dont, but it is directed at those who are Christians who will not bow down before anything or anyone other than our risen Lord Himself.
Mat 7:22-23 KJV 22 Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? 23 And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity

I AM VERY INTERESTED. TO SEE HOW THIS PLAYS OUT, AND HOW FAR WILL CONGRESS AND THE EVAGELICALS ALLOW HIM TO GO BEFORE HE REVEALS HIMSELF FOR WHO HE REALLY IS?
No matter what color Jesus Christ was, HE DIDNT PREACH HATRED, AND IT WAS HIS OWN PEOPLE WHO WERE RESPONSIBLE FOR AND HAD A HAND IN HIS TORTURE AND DEATH! Yet, this person who purposefully burned another human being because of his skin color, and attempts to use JESUS CHRIST as justification!
“To my brothers and sisters in Jesus Christ our savior and Lord, My name is John D. Carothers and I believe the Bible is about white people and for white people,” the handwritten letter said. “I am in Rutherford County jail for burning a black man. I set him on fire with lighter fluid poured on his head."

Belief is the first step toward salvation, not the end of it, as some people would have you believe.
So, if the demons have knowledge of Christ (as the verses below will show) what separates your belief from those of the demons destined for hell??
First, some scripture to prayerfully consider:
And immediately there was in their synagogue a man with an unclean spirit. And he cried out, 24 "What have you to do with us, Jesus of Nazareth? Have you come to destroy us? I know who you are--the Holy One of God."
Mar 1:34 And He healed many who had illness of various diseases. And he cast out many demons, and He did not allow the demons to speak, because they knew Him.
6 And when he saw Jesus from afar, he ran and fell down before him. 7 And crying out with a loud voice, he said, "What have you to do with me, Jesus, Son of the Most High God? I adjure you by God, do not torment me."
“All things were made through him, and without him was not anything made that was made.” - John 1:3
Jesus is the creator of all things, including the angels. The demons have a previous intimate knowledge of Christ that we will not ever possess from this point, yet they lost their “first estate”;
Jude 1:6 And the angels which kept not their first estate, but left their own habitation, he hath reserved in everlasting chains under darkness unto the judgment of the great day.
Much of the book of Jude speaks of men and angels in both the old testament and the new who have walked with God at one point, and then began to walk after the desires of their own flesh.
Just having a knowledge of Christ is not enough for lasting salvation.
18 And this she kept doing for many days. Paul, having become greatly annoyed, turned and said to the spirit, "I command you in the name of Jesus Christ to come out of her." And it came out that very hour.
In the above verse, this demon was confirming Paul and company’s witnessing!!
Imagine that! We could witness and still never make it into the kingdom!!
This demon was speaking truth. It was not preaching lies. Yet, many of us are reduced to demon status in our spirits because we think as long as Christ is on our lips “we got it made”.
I was wrong.
I DO, however BELIEVE that God is calling certain ministers/preachers/pastors and prophets not to vote, because TRUTH CANT BE PREACHED FROM A DENOMINATIONAL OR POLITICAL PERSPECTIVE. God in Christ is neither a denomination or a political affiliate!
God showed me that people will be forced to take stands along their party's and/or denominational lines rather than "Thus Sayeth the Lord!"
As we see in these days, to stand on what the Spirit of God says apart from what your party/denomination says will amount to your voice being removed and/or silenced. Why is that? If we are all Christian and I am a Baptist (for example) than why am I penalized if I say "Yes, Baptism is important, but it cant be necessary for salvation if someone, after accepting Christ, could die before ever being baptized?" Or for my Pentecostal and apostolic brethren, I believe in speaking in tongues, and is a gift of the Holy Spirit, but not relevant for salvation. There are whole denominations as well as individuals who live Holy lives for Christ but either never spoke in tongues or simply don't believe in it. According to them, they aren't saved, although Christ's word says in Matthew 7:20 "By their fruits you shall know them"?
It's the same, if not worse, in our politics. We would be inclined to defend the persons we helped elect regardless of their unrighteousness, or not criticize them as they should be.
Nothing could be more clear today than the hypocrisy of the Republican Party. They claim to be the "Moral Majority", and yet in truth, their actions are the exact opposite! They espouse anger and hatred in their regurgitated rhetoric and will not tolerate any one who is different.
The Republicans thirst and hunger for power, money and national superiority has been allowed to surface (as it has always been there) and be reveled for all with eyes to see and ears to hear. I mean, honestly, how do supposed confessed Evangelical Christians make Capitalism one of their core platforms? This is one example of what the New Testament says about money:
1 Timothy 6:5-10
Perverse disputings of men of corrupt minds, and destitute of the truth, supposing that gain is godliness: from such withdraw thyself. 6 But godliness with contentment is great gain. 7 For we brought nothing into this world, and it is certain we can carry nothing out. 8 And having food and raiment let us be therewith content. 9 But 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. 10 For the love of money is the root of all evil: which while some coveted after, they have erred from the faith, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows.
What would happen politically if the U.S did allow Puerto Rico to become a state (which the vast majority overwhelmingly voted for)? Which party do you think the vast majority would support?
So I realized it was my calling that didn't allow me to vote with a pure conscious.
When the anti Christ comes into power, he comes in through a political system. That's voting. In order to do what God has called me and maybe others to do requires us not to focus on words and appearances, but on the Spirit. It requires to not focus on what may "appear" to be good that they are doing. I may be inclined to give someone I voted for an unrealistic and salvation compromising "mulligan" or 2 or 3.....
We have allowed the devil to dull our senses. We have allowed our senses to become numb, turned off and killed by what we consciously choose to watch, listen to, and give of our time.

There is a divide in this nation that can NEVER be filled or healed as long as one side, the "Christian Right", unashamedly prioritizes leaving riches to their grands. I, unapologetically, know my children being able to feel safe: in their own skin, while walking down the street, not be disrespected because of their ethnicity, while barbequing, sitting on the side of AND/OR going in the pool, being able to rent an air bnb, being able to rent or own their own home and live in it, to simply to wear a hoody while in public, EARN a reasonable living wage, speak their minds and question anyone and anything, and other such things that are afforded any human being as a part of everyday life, the priority.
It's a divide that only a true relationship with God in Christ can heal, beginning with the one between Him and us, in our own hearts and lives, and then between one another.

Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition;
4 Who opposes and exalts himself above all that is called God, or that is worshiped; so that he as God sitting in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God.
I don't know how close we are to the actual reveal of the son of perdition, the anti-Christ, but I DO know this:
I have been a born again, believing, Holy Spirit filled Christian for more years than I have not, and I have never seen nor experienced the corruptness, hatred, and all around foulness that I see from those who call themselves "Christian" as we do today.
The racism; the desire/love/lust for possessions, power, money and status; The adoration and veneration of angels and "saints"; We are bombarded with more and more pastors, ministers and clergy involved in a myriad of sexual sins including pedophilia, rape, adultery (with multiple partners as well) within the congregation, and homosexuality; the accepting of homosexuality as godly while any scripture that's understood to proclaim even an inclination toward homosexuality and the gay lifestyle as a sin, is now being pushed as homophobia, a possible hate crime and anti love. In other words, to view homosexuality as sinful is in itself a misinterpretation of scripture and is thereby the real sin and anti Christ and a pastor may find their tax exemption revoked and charged with a hate crime.
There is a strong false spirit of Nationalism that's favored above and beyond the Spirit of God, Christ and the bible, further fueled and empowered by the rhetoric of the current president of the USA. The spirit of this nation is therefore really their God!
New ageism, Witchcraft and spiritualism is being taught as compatible with Christianity. There are actual "christian" churches that promote cannabis, nudity as well as swinging that identify as Christian (they say Christ died for their sin, preach from the bible)! There are "christian" pastors who more loudly proclaim there is no such thing as hell and those who believe there is are scripturally ignorant and unsound. There are large congregations that will follow these leaders and false prophets right to the place they claim is a misinterpretation of scripture!
This is happening worldwide, involving those who identify as Evangelical, Christian, Atheists and everything in between. I am not necessarily referring to those religions and cults that initially claim to be Christians to draw people in, such as Mormonism, Unification, Unitarians, Scientology, the Filipino Church Of Christ, Jehovah Witnesses, Seventh Day Adventists, Black Israelites, etc., although they also are guilty of these same sinful and crimes within their own organizations and churches, while also masquerading as angels and ministers of light.

8 And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming: 9 Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders, 10 And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved. 11 And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie:
- We see this very thing in those who purposefully choose to honor the words and person of Trump more than the words and person of Christ! Gods word is clear. God will allow you to continue in your deception because of your pride and willfulness, and they will not receive the eternal salvation, that is eternity with God and Christ.
For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be.
Dan 12:1b .......And at that time shall... there shall be a time of trouble, such as never was since there was a nation even to that same time:

I just painstakingly sat through a Jim Bakker show on the Daystar network. He had Lance Wallnau on, promoting their satanic lives on a Trump/Cyrus prophetic fulfillment. They actually promote Trump being called of God, and those who speak out against him as anti-God.
These people are mega trump supporters, and are basically saying to speak out against trump is against God and Christ. They cleverly weave biblical phrases to make what they spew SEEM Christian. They wrap their whole point on anti-abortion sentiments. They thump their chests like the proverbial caveman "Republican good, Democrat bad!"
I'm as saddened as I am angered. How in the world can EVERYONE who is not white, Republican and evangelical who speaks against Trump be anti Christian? In these last days, people calling themselves "Christians" are saying Christian's speaking out against them, their ministry and Trump are under the influence of the "spirit of Leviathan", a demonic spirit, and are twisting the gospel, the message of Trump and all the good he's done and is doing? Like Trump and the true anti-Christ spirit, they promote the ungodly aw Godly, and the true gospel message as undoctrinal.

If the United States of America were truly a Christian nation founded on Christian principles, in 1793, would a huge procession of Freemasons lead a parade to the breaking ground of the Capitol building? Why not church groups? Why was the ground dedicated by Freemasons? Why does the Capital dome have George Washington in an ascended God position?
"The Apotheosis of Washington depicts George Washington sitting amongst the heavens in an exalted manner, or in literal terms, ascending and becoming a god (apotheosis). " - Wikipedia

Here is an e-mail I sent to the author of one such end times site:
"Note: Babylon cannot be America or any other country, because Bible prophecy clearly portrays a country as a BEAST, not a woman."
It seems that you have based your entire reasoning of the end times beast on this assumption which is not spiritually or scripturally sound.
Aren't Christians portrayed as "brides" as well? That's spiritual. What would a cheating bride be referred to as?

This is not only ignorant, it's sheer hatred and 0% Christ likeness!

There is so much that has been said regarding this verse of scripture, and so much that can still be said. That's because God's word is alive and not stagnant. His Spirit breathes life into it time and again.
In this day, in this nation, there are so many attacks happening simultaneously on different fronts, with the Commander In Chief, Trump, being the main instigator and protagonist. Instigator, not originator. The originator is the artist formerly known as Lucifer, Satan.
A few days ago, many honored a young lady who was beheaded in 1943 by the German government at the age of 21, Sophie Scholl and her older brother Hans. Their crime was writing and distributing pamphlets against Hitler and his atrocities.
Jews were not the only victims in the Holocaust, but also those who he perceived as a threat to his ideologies. If one were to side with the Jews you were arrested, probably tortured and killed. Even if someone didn't necessarily side with the Jews but stood against Hitlers tactics, politics, hatred, etc., voicing discontent was a death sentence no matter who you were.
So while on one hand, it may appear to be about antisemitism, racism, politics, etc., It's really about the obtaining and/or maintaining of power and wealth. It's about sin. The desire and obtaining of status, power and wealth does not develop in a vacuum nor in isolation. There's a whole lot of other people and sin involved, that gets exposed! Sin that has been nurtured and developed in communities and in people's hearts. Christ says in His word, the love of money is the root of all types of evil. The Spirit expounds and lets us know that it is the desire to obtain wealth and power causes us to fall into habitual sinful lifestyles. It points to a heart that's not right with God, no matter how much they say "Jesus" or attend church.
Right now, there appears to be a civil war brewing in this nation. Whites outwardly against any person of Black or Brown hue . A war, where Whites, no matter how great or small (economically, politically, physically) have seemingly been (or at the very least, feel) empowered to say what they will about blacks and browns to our faces. Always filled with anger and lies, ready to parrot, mimic and regurgitate the talking points of the Racist in Chief and his mouth pieces. They feel empowered to involve local authorities, who, many times, seem to cruelly hand out street justice when it suites them with very little, if any, consequences or abatement.
But why do they always look dumb founded when called out on it as if somehow they are being victimized? As if they are being harassed for doing their duty?
However, if you are other than Black and Brown and feel the need to stand up in the face of this adverse and perverse culture, you will also feel the wrath of the powers that be, because you have become a threat to the establishment.
