5/20/19 UPDATED THIS POST WITH THE MOST SHOCKING AND DISTURBING NEWS YET! SEE LINK BELOW DATED MAY 20th! PLEASE BE PRAYING!

As Christians, many of us think that we should be able to trust those in leadership positions at our churches. But sadly, we cannot. For those of us who seriously read and study God’s Word, we are keenly aware of the many warnings and examples in Scripture that show the necessity of testing everything against Scripture –especially the teachings and behavior of those who claim to preach and teach God’s Word. Many of us have learned by personal experience that some pastors who are supposed to be loving shepherds who are to guard and protect their flock that God has entrusted to them, are instead verbally abusive, manipulative, and seeking their own glory instead of desiring to glorify God. We have learned the hard way that we are to place our trust in God alone and not in mankind. But for those of you who have not yet come to realize this extremely important truth, let me ask you these questions:

What would you do if you found out that the leadership of your church was hiding the facts about sexual abuse that took place?

What would you do if you discovered that your child may have been one of the victims but was afraid to tell you?

What if they were even possibly threatened to keep silent?

What would you do if you discovered that your child took part in a game presented to them by a Christian leader called “Punch the Rat” where there were presents in all of the boxes –except for one. In this one box contained a live rat that squealed in pain when the children, unbeknownst to them, would punch the rat instead of a box that contained a present? Here is what someone on Twitter shared:

“Wooden crates were constructed with gifts inside. Kids knew there was a live rat inside one. They cringed when they had to hit bc they knew they could hear the animal noise of pain” this quote is from a woman who’s daughter was there.”

Think about it. Instead of teaching our children about Jesus Christ, these “Christian” leaders who are supposed to be setting forth an example of Jesus to our children — Christian leaders whom we have placed our precious children in their care — are showing our children that it’s okay to abuse animals! Those who don’t want to participate because they don’t want to hurt the rat and who are not strong enough to continue standing against this act of abuse, could then be pressured to conform to the thinking of the majority in order to be accepted, and their sensitive consciences slowly become hardened and therefore they slowly begin to lose the ability to clearly know what’s right and what’s wrong. In the adult world we call this the Hegelian Dialectic Process.

It is a known fact that many who abuse and kill animals when they are children grow up to abuse — and even kill — people, as well. Please sit down with your children and ask them if they have ever played these games and tell them how wrong games like this are. Teach them to be compassionate and loving not only to animals, but also — and especially — to people.

Harvest Bible Chapel attendees and members who have not yet heard, I need to tell you that the above incidents that I have just shared with you regarding sexual and emotional abuse of children took place within your midst!

On May 12th 2019 another person on Twitter had this to say:

At family party today my niece & nephew said they played a game at @HarvestBible1 camp called Spit the Cricket. You put it in your mouth & see how far you can spit it. They were taught it was funny. Grooming to not have empathy is real.”

The articles that I have linked to below are filled with documented evidence regarding many serious matters, including hiding facts about sexual abuse that took place! I never intended to write any more posts regarding Harvest Bible Chapel and James MacDonald, but as a former 14 1/2 year attendee and member of Harvest Bible Chapel Rolling Meadows (June 1997-Jan. 2012) I cannot remain silent and sit idly by as I read the extremely troubling information that is coming forth regarding what has gone on behind the scenes over the past seven years since I left. As I see the truth being exposed regarding the coverup of sexual abuse that went on (may God richly bless former HBC Counseling Pastor, Rob Williams, for reporting the abuse that took place by Paxton Singer. A true example of what it means to Act Like Men), as well as the ungodly character of James MacDonald that became known through audio recordings which should disqualify him from ever being a pastor again, his extravagant lifestyle that was approved by the elder board, his abuse of power and authority as he belittled godly men — and godly women — with his words and actions, his lack of remorse and repentance, etc., etc., I must speak out!

I also think of the innocent children who have been — and will continue to be — affected, not only by what has already taken place there, but also I think of how every precious child will be affected by the failure of their parents to take a stand and say, “Enough is enough,” and take some God-honoring action to make sure their children are safe and so they see a godly response from their parents regarding the failure of a pastor to be a true shepherd to the people that have been entrusted to his care. If a true shepherd fails in some way and is truly repentant, he would stand before his congregation and admit his failures and ask forgiveness for what he did, not leave the many people behind that he so deeply hurt in one way or another.

For those of you who attend Harvest Bible Chapel and are aware of these things, I understand your dilemma quite well. I know how hard it is to leave a church where you have so many wonderful relationships with those who attend there. However, is staying there honoring to God? Is staying there being a good example to your children? Is enabling this “ministry” to continue on by your attendance when so much was — and in some ways still continuing to be — hidden from you  glorifying to God?

May I humbly suggest to those of you who want to leave but have nowhere to go:

Consider gathering together somewhere else where you can have a time of worship, prayer, and time in God’s Word. As many have been saying for many years now, “Vote with your feet and leave.” Let the empty seats represent your disgust at the wrongdoings and failures that went on with full knowledge and approval of those in leadership.

Where is their fear of the Lord? Where is their desire to honor God? If James MacDonald and Rick Donald were truly repentant they would have stood before the congregation in person, admitted their sins and failures, and asked for your forgiveness. Instead they seemingly flee to another state attempting to start afresh, sadly, it seems, not even thinking twice about the devastation they brought about and the shattered lives left behind; the result of their ungodly behavior. Even though it has been seven years since I have left HBCRM, I still pray for them when they come to mind. Every time I pass the church since I left, I pray the day will one day come when that horrible “vertical church” symbol will be taken down and a cross will take its place, and that the Biblical gospel will be preached, with no more manipulation of  Scripture in an attempt to change the thinking of the congregation in order to lead people to believe what HBC leadership wants them to believe (Hegelian Dialectic Process – watch the last video below to learn more).

For those who have been devastated in one way or another by what has happened over the years by the words and actions of James MacDonald and others who were in leadership, do what the Lord is calling you to do. When you have done all you need to do, rest in the fact that we serve a God who sees the many injustices done. Although James MacDonald is no longer your pastor, the Lord knows the motives and intentions of his heart and He already knows what he is planning to do next. If James MacDonald truly seeks to honor God, he will have a true godly sorrow for not only all that he has done to bring shame to the name of Jesus Christ, but also he will have a true godly sorrow for all the people that he has hurt over the years and for all the ways that he has failed to be a true shepherd to the thousands of people he was given to care for. If he sincerely repents before God and personally apologizes to the many people that he has hurt and seeks to honor God in all that he says and does, God could indeed restore his ministry to something truly glorifying to Him. If he does not repent, God will bring it down, or he will have to answer to God one day.

Below I have linked to some important information that you all need to be aware of. Another story is soon to break, and as soon as it does I will add it to the links below. I am not trying to be divisive by posting this information. I only seek to share all of the information that others have gathered after doing a thorough job of researching and following many leads to help expose the many lies and deception before many more people are devastated by all that has happened at Harvest. I pray that God will use this information to help open your eyes to the truth so that you can see what is really happening. I care about all of you who may still be attending Harvest Bible Chapel and those of you who are considering starting to attend. Please open your eyes! Test everything in light of Scripture! (Acts 17:11) Seek God for the truth in these matters! Place your trust in Jesus Christ alone and not in the leadership of the church –any church!

As Christians we serve a God who sees all that is happening, and He will not be mocked! (Galatians 6:7) God is a God of love, mercy, and grace, but there comes a time when He will bring judgment and will bring down any ministry that is bringing shame to the name of Jesus Christ and the Biblical gospel and is instead exalting man and not Jesus Christ.

God also sees your pain and discouragement. He sees how deeply you have been hurt and how you served the Lord with all of your heart in the ministry that you were (and maybe still are) in. As long as you did it unto the Lord, rest assured that God used it — and will continue to use it — for His glory, and all of your work was not — and will not be — in vain:

“Therefore, my beloved brethren, be ye stedfast, unmoveable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, forasmuch as ye know that your labour is not in vain in the Lord.” (1 Corinthians 15:58)

“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. But he that doeth wrong shall receive for the wrong which he hath done: and there is no respect of persons.” (Colossians 3:23-25)

Bring your hurts to the Lord along with any anger and bitterness that may be within your heart. Remember, anger is not a sin. It’s what you do with your anger that makes it sin. (Ephesians 4:26) Righteous anger was demonstrated by Jesus Christ when He overturned the tables of the money changers in the temple. Pray for James, Rick, and all those who were once in leadership positions there, as well as those who are presently in leadership. Ask the hard questions! Stand against all that is wrong there! Demand answers! Protect your children from abuse, whether it be sexual (by inappropriate actions of leadership) or emotional (by verbal abuse or games such as Punch the Rat or Spit the Cricket)! If you haven’t done so already, sit down with your children and ask them if they have ever been touched inappropriately by anyone in church leadership or if they were told to do anything inappropriate, especially if your child attended Camp Harvest between the years of 2016 and February of 2019 when Paxton Singer was on staff. Let your children know that they can come to you with any concerns that they may have. If Biblical change does not come soon, then leave and do not turn back! I will be praying for all of you.

 

RELATED SCRIPTURES

“My eyes are on their ways; they are not hidden from me.” (Jeremiah 16:17)

“I, wisdom, dwell together with prudence; I possess knowledge and discretion. To fear the LORD is to hate evil; I hate pride and arrogance, evil behavior and perverse speech. Counsel and sound judgment are mine; I have understanding and power.” (Proverbs 8:12-14)

“An elder must be blameless, faithful to his wife, a man whose children believe and are not open to the charge of being wild and disobedient. Since an overseer manages God’s household, he must be blameless—not overbearing, not quick-tempered, not given to drunkenness, not violent, not pursuing dishonest gain. Rather, he must be hospitable, one who loves what is good, who is self-controlled, upright, holy and disciplined. He must hold firmly to the trustworthy message as it has been taught, so that he can encourage others by sound doctrine and refute those who oppose it.” (Titus 1:6-9)

“Not many of you should become teachers, my brothers, because you know that we who teach will be judged more strictly.” (James 3:1)

“Take heed unto thyself, and unto the doctrine; continue in them: for in doing this thou shalt both save thyself, and them that hear thee.” (1 Timothy 4:16)

“Keep watch over yourselves and all the flock of which the Holy Spirit has made you overseers. Be shepherds of the church of God, which he bought with his own blood.” (Acts 20:28)

“The weapons we fight with are not the weapons of the world. On the contrary, they have divine power to demolish strongholds. We demolish arguments and pretension that sets itself up against the knowledge of God, and we take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ. And we will be ready to punish every act of disobedience, once your obedience is complete. You are looking only on the surface of things. If anyone is confident that he belongs to Christ, he should consider again that we belong to Christ just as much as he. For even if I boast somewhat freely about the authority the Lord gave us for building you up rather than pulling you down, I will not be ashamed of it.” (2 Corinthians 10:4-8)

“For we cannot do anything against the truth, but only for the truth. We are glad whenever we are weak but you are strong; and our prayer is for your perfection. This is why I write these things when I am absent, that when I come I may not have to be harsh in my use of authority–the authority the Lord gave me for building you up, not for tearing you down.” (2 Corinthians 13:8-10)

“Have nothing to do the fruitless deeds of darkness, but rather expose them.” (Ephesians 5:11)

“Therefore, I declare to you today that I am innocent of the blood of any of you. For I have not hesitated to proclaim to you the whole will of God. Keep watch over yourselves and all the flock of which the Holy Spirit has made you overseers. Be shepherds of the church of God, which he bought with his own blood. I know that after I leave, savage wolves will come in among you and will not spare the flock. Even from your own number men will arise and distort the truth in order to draw away disciples after them. So be on your guard! Remember that for three years I never stopped warning each of you night and day with tears.” (Acts 20:26-31)

“If you are insulted for the name of Christ, you are blessed, because the Spirit of glory and of God rests on you. Indeed, none of you should suffer as a murderer or thief or wrongdoer, or even as a meddler. But if you suffer as a Christian, do not be ashamed, but glorify God that you bear that name. For it is time for judgment to begin with the family of God; and if it begins with us, what will the outcome be for those who disobey the gospel of God? And, “If it is hard for the righteous to be saved, what will become of the ungodly and the sinner?” So then, those who suffer according to God’s will should entrust their souls to their faithful Creator and continue to do good.” (1 Peter 4:14-18)

I will end with this Scripture:

“There is no fear of God before his eyes. For in his own eyes he flatters  himself too much to detect or hate his sin. The words of his mouth are wicked and deceitful; he has ceased to be wise and to do good. Even on his bed he plots evil; he commits himself to a sinful course and does not reject what is wrong.” (Psalm 36:1-4)

In the video below you will not only learn about the Hegelian Dialectic Process, but also you will learn about the unbiblical Church Growth Movement that incorporates worldly methods to grow the church instead of a pastor simply being faithful to preach God’s Word and trusting Him to grow the Church (Acts 2:42-47).

IN CLOSING:

I would like to thank Julie Roys, Scott Bryant, and Ryan Mahoney (and their families) for what they endured as they were determined to uncover the lies and to reveal the truth regarding the mismanagement of church funds and to bring to light the many things that were hidden regarding the ungodly character of James MacDonald. May God’s will be done so that He alone gets the glory.

I would also like to express my deepest thanks and appreciation to Rob Williams for his courage and concern to follow up to see if the child abuse that took place at the hands of Paxton Singer was reported by someone at Harvest Bible Chapel, and when he found out that it had not been, he submitted a report himself. Sadly, instead of protecting our children and exposing this evil that took place, the leaders of Harvest Bible Chapel Rolling Meadows seemingly chose instead to cover up the abuse that took place in an attempt to protect the name and fame of James MacDonald and Harvest Bible Chapel.

A special thanks also to Mancow Muller, a former attendee of Harvest Bible Chapel, who came to faith in Jesus Christ while he attended there, and who was also instrumental in bringing to light many of the horrendous things that revealed the true character of James MacDonald. May God heal him from the emotional abuse that he experienced from James MacDonald, and may God lead him to a truly Biblically solid church where God’s Word is preached without being twisted and distorted in any way.

UPDATE:

I am in the process of writing at least two more posts (not Harvest related), but due to my sister being in the hospital again, and other unexpected circumstances, I have not been able to finish writing them. My sister was released from the hospital tonight, so, Lord willing, I am hoping to get back to working on them over the next week or so until they are completed.

For those of you who are unaware of some of the troubling teachings that can be found in Catholicism, I’d like to share the following two part Playlist with you. In these two videos you will see actual quotes made by former popes and those canonized as saints in the Catholic church regarding Catholicim’s teaching, “Outside the Church there is no salvation.” My prayer is not only that you will come to understand why I see the extreme importance of continuing the series in which I began comparing the teachings found in the Catechism Of The Catholic Church against the Word of God, the Bible, but also my prayer is that you will become aware of the extreme importance of reading and studying God’s Word for yourself so that you will not be led astray by those who teach things that are based on the traditions and philosophies of men and contradict the truth of God’s Word.

There are some religions that use fear tactics to control those in their belief system by teaching that they are the “one true Church.” This induces fear in many people to the extent that they dare not even question a teaching or ever consider leaving their church for fear of losing their salvation. Among the religious groups who teach that they are the “one true Church” are The Watchtower Bible And Tract Society/Jehovah’s Witnesses, the Church of Jesus Christ Latter Day Saints/Mormons, and, yes. Roman Catholicism –the Catholic church.

There are many former Catholics (myself included) who can attest to how some of the teachings in Catholicism only produced  fear, and peace and assurance of salvation was nowhere to be found in their teachings. The Church that Jesus Christ spoke of in the gospels is not an organization, institution, or a specific religion. It is the called out ones (ecclesia); people who have chosen to believe the true Biblical gospel that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of the living God as the apostle Peter proclaimed by a revelation from God. Upon this solid truth — this rock — Jesus Christ would build His church:

13 “When Jesus came to the region of Caesarea Philippi, he asked his disciples, “Who do people say the Son of Man is?”

14 They replied, “Some say John the Baptist; others say Elijah; and still others, Jeremiah or one of the prophets.”

15 “But what about you?” he asked. “Who do you say I am?”

16 Simon Peter answered, “You are the Messiah, the Son of the living God.”

17 Jesus replied, “Blessed are you, Simon son of Jonah, for this was not revealed to you by flesh and blood, but by my Father in heaven.

18 And I tell you that you are Peter, and on this rock I will build my church, and the gates of Hades will not overcome it.” (Matthew 16:13-23)

(SOURCE – biblegateway.com)

Jesus Christ, God in the flesh, is the Rock upon which the Church would be built, not Peter, as Catholicism teaches. Consider these Scriptures:

“I will proclaim the name of the LORD. O praise the greatness of our God! He is the Rock, his works are perfect, and all his ways are just. You deserted the Rock who fathered you; you forgot the God who gave you birth.” “For their rock is not like our Rock, as even our enemies concede.”(Deuteronomy 32:3, 4,18, 31)

“There is no one holy like the LORD; there is no one besides you; there is no Rock like our God.” (1 Samuel 2:2)

“He said, “The LORD is my rock, my fortress and my deliverer; my God is my rock, in whom I take refuge, my shield and the horn of my salvation. He is my stronghold, my refuge and my savior–from violent men you save me. I call to the LORD, who is worthy of praise, and I am saved from my enemies.” (2 Sam 22:2-4)

“For who is God besides the LORD? And who is the Rock except our God?” (2 Samuel 22:32)

“The LORD lives! Praise be to my Rock! Exalted be God, the Rock, my Savior!” (2 Samuel 22:47)

“The LORD is my rock, my fortress and my deliverer; my God is my rock, in whom I take refuge. He is my shield and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold.” (Psalm 18:2)

“For who is God besides the LORD? And who is the Rock except our God?”(Psalm 18:31)

“The LORD lives! Praise be to my Rock! Exalted be God my Savior! He is the God who avenges me, who subdues nations under me, who saves me from my enemies.” (Psalm 18:46-48a)

“In you, O LORD, I have taken refuge; let me never be put to shame; deliver me in your righteousness. Turn your ear to me, come quickly to my rescue; be my rock of refuge, a strong fortress to save me. Since you are my rock and my fortress, for the sake of your name lead and guide me. Free me from the trap that is set for me, for you are my refuge.” (Psalm 31:1-4)

“My soul finds rest in God alone; my salvation comes from him. He alone is my rock and my salvation; he is my fortress, I will never be shaken. Find rest, O my soul, in God alone; my hope comes from him. He alone is my rock and my salvation; he is my fortress, I will not be shaken. My salvation and my honor depend on God; he is my mighty rock, my refuge. Trust in him at all times, O people; pour out your hearts to him, for God is our refuge.”(Psalm 62:2,5-8)

“In spite of all this, they kept on sinning; in spite of his wonders, they did not believe. So he ended their days in futility and their years in terror. Whenever God slew them, they would seek him; they eagerly turned to him again. They remembered that God was their Rock, that God Most High was their Redeemer.”(Psalm 78:32-35)

“He will call out to me, “You are my Father, my God, the Rock my Savior.” (Psalm 89:26)

“For I do not want you to be ignorant of the fact, brothers, that our forefathers were all under the cloud and that they all passed through the sea. They were all baptized into Moses in the cloud and in the sea. They all ate the same spiritual food and drank the same spiritual drink; for they drank from the spiritual rock that accompanied them, and that rock was Christ.” (1 Corinthians 10:1-4)

It is very important that you understand Catholicism’s teaching, “There is no salvation outside the [Catholic] Church” because it will lay the groundwork for some future posts that I will be writing not only out of my desire to reach precious Catholics with the truly good news of the Biblical gospel that can be found in God’s Word, but also out of my desire to warn Christians of the many ways that they may be enticed into wrongly believing this teaching and be lured into the Catholic church and away from believing the Biblical gospel.

Now I present to you:

Extra Ecclesiam Nulla Salus – No Salvation Outside The Church

RELATED SCRIPTURES

 

“He was delivered over to death for our sins and was raised to life for our justification.” (Romans 4:25)

“Therefore as by the offence of one [the sin of Adam] judgment came upon all men to condemnation; even so by the righteousness of one [Jesus Christ] the free gift came upon all men unto justification of life.” (Romans 5:18)

“For when the kindness and love of God our Savior appeared, he saved us, not because of righteous things we have done, but because of his mercy.” (Titus 3:4,5)

“Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by Me.” (John 14:6)

“Be it known unto you all, and to all the people of Israel, that by the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, whom ye crucified, whom God raised from the dead, even by Him doth this man stand here before you whole. This is the stone which was set at nought of you builders, which is become the head of the corner. Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.” (Acts 4:10-12)

“For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus; Who gave himself a ransom for all, to be testified in due time. ” (1 Timothy 2:5,6)

“I am astonished that you are so quickly deserting the one who called you by the grace of Christ and are turning to a different gospel — which is really no gospel at all. Evidently some people are throwing you into confusion and are trying to pervert the gospel of Christ. But even if we or an angel from heaven should preach a gospel other than the one we preached to you, let him be eternally condemned! As we have already said, so now I say again: If anybody is preaching to you a gospel other than the one we preached to you, let him be eternally condemned!” (Galatians 1:6-9)

“But I am afraid that just as Eve was deceived by the serpent’s cunning, your minds may somehow be led astray from your sincere and pure devotion to Christ. For if someone comes to you and preaches a Jesus other than the Jesus we preached, or if you receive a different spirit from the one you received, or a different gospel from the one you accepted, you put up with it easily enough.” (2 Corinthians 11:3,4)

“When Christ came as high priest of the good things that are already here, He went through the greater and more perfect tabernacle that is not man-made, that is to say, not a part of this creation.  He did not enter by means of the blood of goats and calves; but He entered the Most Holy Place once for all by His own blood, having obtained eternal redemption.  The blood of goats and bulls and the ashes of a heifer sprinkled on those who are ceremonially unclean sanctify them so that they are outwardly clean.  How much more, then, will the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit offered Himself unblemished to God, cleanse our consciences from acts that lead to death so that we may serve the living God!” (Hebrews 9:11-14)

“For Christ did not enter a man-made sanctuary that was only a copy of the true one; He entered heaven itself, now to appear for us in God’s presence.  Nor did He enter heaven to offer Himself again and again, the way the high priest enters the Most Holy Place every year with blood that is not his own.  Then Christ would have had to suffer many times since the creation of the world.  But now He has appeared once for all at the end of the ages to do away with sin by the sacrifice of Himself.  Just as man is destined to die once and after that to face judgment, so Christ was sacrificed once to take away the sins of many people; and He will appear a second time, not to bear sin, but to bring salvation to those who are waiting for Him.” (Hebrews 9:24-28)

1 “The law is only a shadow of the good things that are coming—not the realities themselves. For this reason it can never, by the same sacrifices repeated endlessly year after year, make perfect those who draw near to worship.

Otherwise, would they not have stopped being offered? For the worshipers would have been cleansed once for all, and would no longer have felt guilty for their sins.

But those sacrifices are an annual reminder of sins.

It is impossible for the blood of bulls and goats to take away sins.

Therefore, when Christ came into the world, he said:

“Sacrifice and offering you did not desire,
    but a body you prepared for me;

with burnt offerings and sin offerings
    you were not pleased.

Then I said, ‘Here I am—it is written about me in the scroll—
    I have come to do your will, my God.’”

First he said, “Sacrifices and offerings, burnt offerings and sin offerings you did not desire, nor were you pleased with them”—though they were offered in accordance with the law.

Then he said, “Here I am, I have come to do your will.” He sets aside the first to establish the second.

10 And by that will, we have been made holy through the sacrifice of the body of Jesus Christ once for all.

11 Day after day every priest stands and performs his religious duties; again and again he offers the same sacrifices, which can never take away sins.

12 But when this priest had offered for all time one sacrifice for sins, he sat down at the right hand of God,

13 and since that time he waits for his enemies to be made his footstool.

14 For by one sacrifice he has made perfect forever those who are being made holy.

15 The Holy Spirit also testifies to us about this. First he says:

16 “This is the covenant I will make with them
    after that time, says the Lord.
I will put my laws in their hearts,
    and I will write them on their minds.”

17 Then he adds:

“Their sins and lawless acts I will remember no more.”

18 And where these have been forgiven, sacrifice for sin is no longer necessary.” (Hebrews 10:1-18) (SOURCE – biblegateway.com)

“For Christ died for sins once for all, the righteous for the unrighteous, to bring you to God.” (1 Peter 3:18)

“For if a law had been given that could impart life, then righteousness would certainly have come by the law.  But the Scripture declares that the whole world is a prisoner of sin, so that what was promised, being given through faith in Jesus Christ, might be given to those who believe.  Before this faith came, we were held prisoners by the law, locked up until faith should be revealed.  So the law was put in charge to lead us to Christ that we might be justified by faith.” (Galatians 3:21-24)

“But God demonstrates His own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.”  (Romans 5:8)

“For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith — and this not from yourselves, it is the gift of God –not by works, so that no one can boast.  For we are God’s workmanship, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.” (Ephesians 2:8-10)

“This is love: not that we loved God, but that He loved us and sent His Son as an atoning sacrifice for our sins.” (1 John 4:10)

“But when the kindness and love of God our Savior appeared, He saved us, not because of righteous things we have done, but because of His mercy.” (Titus 3:4,5)

“Blessed are they whose transgressions are forgiven, whose sins are covered.  Blessed is the man whose sin the LORD will never count against him.” (Romans 4:7,8)

“But there were also false prophets among the people, just as there will be false teachers among you.” (2 Peter 2:1)

“Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men. after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ.” (Colossians 2:8)

“I write these things to you who believe in the name of the Son of God so that you may know that you have eternal life.” (1 John 5:13)

“Therefore, I declare to you today that I am innocent of the blood of all men. For I have not hesitated to proclaim to you the whole will of God. Keep watch over yourselves and all the flock of which the Holy Spirit has made you overseers. Be shepherds of the church of God, which He bought with His own blood. I know that after I leave, savage wolves will come in among you and will not spare the flock. Even from your own number men will arise and distort the truth in order to draw away disciples after them. So be on your guard! Remember that for three years I never stopped warning each of you night and day with tears.” (Acts 20:26-31)

 

Thank you very much for stopping by today.

God Bless You

Capture Eyes with tears 1Welcome to another post in the series of posts that I have entitled, Warning You With Tears Wednesdays. Lord willing, at least once a month on Wednesdays I will be writing and sharing one of these posts with you so that I can make you all aware of some important information that I come across on the Internet that you may not have heard about.

Since I knew that I would soon be starting a new part-time job (and I did in June) and that my free time would then be somewhat limited, I was trying to think of something that I could write on a regular basis that would be short and to the point (at least that was my intention). And since I am a detective-at-heart and desire to make you all aware of the importance of testing things that pastors and teachers say (and do) in light of Scripture (Acts 17:11), the idea to do these posts — as well as the name — came to my mind in November of 2014, based on Acts 20:26-31:

“For I have not hesitated to proclaim to you the whole will of God. Keep watch over yourselves and all the flock of which the Holy Spirit has made you overseers. Be shepherds of the church of God, which He bought with His own blood. I know that after I leave, savage wolves will come in among you and will not spare the flock. Even from your own number men will arise and distort the truth in order to draw away disciples after them. So be on your guard! Remember that for three years I never stopped warning each of you night and day with tears.”

So with all of that in mind, here is what I’d like to share with you in today’s WARNING YOU WITH TEARS WEDNESDAY:

1) For those of you who appreciated the in-depth information that Elliott Nesch presented in his three hour expanded video version of Church of Tares, here it is again. I’m mainly posting it for those of you who have not even seen the original shorter version. When time allows, please watch this video. It’s well worth your time, especially if you have many valid concerns about certain changes that you have been noticing taking place in your church:

 

 

2) The following very well written article by Pamela Couvrette of GUARDING THE DEPOSIT ties in perfectly with the above video:

CULT OF PERSONALITY: THE DARKNESS UNDER THE EVANGELICAL LIMELIGHT

 

3) Many of you who are Bereans at heart will definitely relate to what this person wrote in the following letter to LIGHTHOUSE TRAILS RESEARCH:

LETTER TO THE EDITOR: DISHEARTENED WITH LACK OF DISCERNMENT IN SO MANY CHRISTIAN LIVES

4) A big AMEN to the following article that I saw this morning, which Marsha West of BEREAN RESEARCH linked to:

‘THE SHACK’ WITH FILM PENDING CALLED ‘GREATEST DECEPTION’ TO CHURCH ‘IN THE LAST 200 YEARS’

5) Have you seen some of the videos that are warning about all the things that are supposed to happen in this month of September 2015, such as this one?

 

Well, HERE’S an article by Gaylene Goodroad of Herescope in which she shares information about David James’ book entitled, Biblical Guide To The Shemitah and the Blood Moons that will at least ‘demystify the popular prophecies about Jewish Sabbaths and blood moons.’

Remember, those of us who are true followers of Jesus Christ are not to fear the future, but to place our complete trust in the fact that God is in control. Just “make the most of every opportunity” that you get to share God’s love and forgiveness with whomever you have the opportunity to talk with.

6) Now that school is back in session again, here are a few warnings for all of you with children and grandchildren, etc., so that you can be aware of what is taking place in many schools today! I have shared some information with you on these topics in the past, but in case you missed it, these are things that you all truly need to be aware of:

 

HERE  you will find many links to articles on Lighthouse Trails Research concerning the dangerous New Age/Buddhist practice of  Mindfulness Meditation and how it’s making its way into many schools today.

You can also read another article on Mindfulness by Marcia Montenegro of Christian Answers For The New Age:

MINDFULNESS GOES TO KINDERGARTEN

Many schools are now presenting Common Core Curriculum to your children. If you are not aware of the controversy about Common Core and what is in this curriculum, please be sure to watch this video when time allows:

7) HERE is a very disturbing story from LifeSite News that may make you want to become a vegetarian, or, at the least, boycott certain companies. I suggest that you eat your breakfast, lunch, or dinner first before reading it. Above all, please pray!

8) After taking a much needed break in order to “maintain his sanity,” Glenn Chatfield, who is the author at THE WATCHMAN’S BAGPIPES posted his latest installment of  his review on Gail Riplinger’s book, New Age Bible Versions a couple of weeks ago. If you haven’t read it yet, you can read it HERE.

9) And just as I was getting ready to publish this post, I was notified that Glenn Chatfield posted his newest article in his series entitled, RANDOM ABERRATIONS APOSTASIES AND HERESIES. So I’m sharing it with you now even before I get the chance to read it. You can become informed about the many things that Glenn wants to make you aware of by clicking right HERE.

10) If you are a born-again Christian who has placed your trust in Jesus Christ alone for your salvation, and the day comes when your faith is tested, and your job may even be on the line, will you still continue to take a stand for Jesus Christ and Biblical truth like Kim Davis has? HERE’S HER STATEMENT THAT WAS RECENTLY RELEASED. Please take a few minutes to pray for her. When things like this happen, we have to remember that it’s a spiritual battle we’re fighting. (Ephesians 6:10-18)

“Finally be strong in the Lord and in His mighty power. Put on the full armor of God so that you can take a stand against the devil’s schemes. For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. Therefore, put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand.”

Thank you for stopping by and taking time out of your busy day to read some of my posts and poems.

God Bless You
