BALLS, Get Some – Be A Man of GOD

Grow some spiritual balls

The terms “grow some balls” or grow a pair are often used in the context of toughening up, Manning Up and being strong and not being passive. “Growing spiritual balls is hardening up to you’re true purpose. The flesh is yoked to the world and Satan is the god of this world. So all one has to do to not be filled with the Spirit is to be in the flesh; as a result, you will remain a servant of Satan. God’s authority in the Earth flows down through men and to women in order to keep the children in obedience producing a Godly seed (Genesis 18:19; Malachi 2:15; I Timothy 3:4-5, 12; Titus 1:6).

Ball sports are not sports in the true sense, but are instead considered to be games. These ball games can be grouped by the general objective of the game, sometimes indicating a common origin either of a game itself or of its basic idea:

If you don’t have any balls the only thing you can do is play with balls – Gary Price

Man up Manifesto

MAN UP Manifesto PDF 

Balls – Man Up

I was recently asked why there does not seem to be many messages directed towards men about standing up to be men of God.

First, let me say that we cannot buy into a tit for tat mentality. If a message is targeted to women, there is no obligation to then give a message that deals with men. Let us all – men and women – simply be at God’s disposal. If a word comes forth with deals with us – receive it, repent, and change. If a word is not for us, then pray for those to whom it pertains and move on. Let us not look to the left nor to the right, but keep our eyes on Jesus and let the Father mold us as He sees fit.

Okay, that said, the following is a message by Pastor Gary C. Price as he teaches a message called, “Balls“. In it, he speaks about the necessity for men to loose themselves from that which disempowers them and take their place in the spiritual war against wickedness.

The woman is an extension of man

We must study the word of God without contamination from our own preconceived notions or definitions of the world. The woman is an extension of man, which is why she is suitable to be a help meet for man.
In order to receive the Kingdom of God, one must receive the Holy Spirit. God the Father wills a thing, Jesus speaks it, and the Holy Spirit performs it. There are only 3 blockages that can prevent one from receiving the Holy Spirit: the flesh, the world, and Satan.

The flesh is yoked to the world and Satan is the god of this world. So all one has to do to not be filled with the Spirit is to be in the flesh; as a result, you will remain a servant of Satan.
The first mission of God when He made man was to make man like Himself.
The image of man created by God was male and female, and such was necessary for the procreation of the race. If that image (male & female) is marred, then it no longer reflects what God created, but becomes an avenue for satanic expression.

Homosexuality

Since God created man as male and female, we can know that He did not create homosexuality, transgenderism, lesbianism, bisexuality, etc. Such is not the creation of God but a Satanic mutation of the life God initially created. Instead of getting offended, turn on that demonic invasion, ask God to deliver you from that spirit so that you may be made whole.

Leviticus 18:22 ESV /

You shall not lie with a male as with a woman; it is an abomination.

Spirits are genderless, but the spirit governs the tabernacle to which God assigns you and allows you to have fellowship with Him. Without the governance of the spirit, It is man’s soul that rises up against his spirit – not liking the government of God – in an attempt to usurp control of the body and indulge the desires of the flesh. Unless the soul is brought under subjection to the spirit (I Corinthians 9:27), Satan is able to infuse with the rebellious soul and mold you into his image.

Satan is a soul man or a soul dweller

Satan is a soul man or a soul dweller. This is why the false church runs on soul power.
The mutated image of Satan is the fallen nature of man. A soul man – a man’s mind detached from God and ruled by his soulish flesh – is the beast.

If you are ruled by your soul then you will also rebel against all types of authority, including the reflection of God’s authority in the Earth which flows down through men and to women in order to keep the children in obedience producing a Godly seed (Genesis 18:19; Malachi 2:15; I Timothy 3:4-5, 12; Titus 1:6).

Man is a reflection of God. The woman is designed to be a reflection of the man; thereby also reflecting the image of God (I Corinthians 11:7). When there are a lot of loose, whorish women soliciting lust from the men, it is only because men have abdicated their authority in God.
Women are by nature feminine. However an effeminate man is abnormal and reflects one who is outwardly a man, but inwardly has characteristics of a female. Such is a castrated man who has no strength to stand or fight; he has no balls. These eunuchs then become the reflection of other men, having “man crushes” or “bromances” on the men they idolize (sports figures, entertainers, politicians, etc.). We are witnessing the homosexualization of men, not only in the expression of full-blown homosexuality, but in the castration of men through uncontrolled lusts.

Satan is after Adam,

Satan is after Adam, but he must use Eve to emasculate him. By getting access to Adam, Satan could pervert the entire race of man (Romans 5:12).
Satan is a sodomite;  he is the King of Sodom (Genesis Chapter 14). Therefore, those who have been mutated into his image share that sodomite nature.

The only way a man can be a man is to stand on the truth – against what is wrong – and not buckle. You must personally represent God yourself. You must be responsible. You must be what God created man to be in the beginning.

A woman who fights against this is ruled by the same satanic, sodomite spirit. This is why many women prefer to be around effeminate men and raise their boys to be effeminate. They are offended by a normal man.

A castrated man bleeds lust

A castrated man bleeds lust. If a man is lusting after you, then you can know you are looking at a guy who is inwardly a girl.

When a man’s heart turns towards God again, he will not worship you, he will worship God, but he will love you. Pastor Gary C. Price

To find a DEMON- Follow the Money!

Demons: Distributors of fortune

While much of what is called Christianity believes in an evil spirit world containing some conglomeration of “fallen angels” that are typically believed to also be “demons” we need to ask the question- Why do we believe this? Is there a genuine biblical basis that factually supports such a belief? As you read this very sentence- if you believe in demons, your mind is already thinking of those “obvious” verses that “prove” that there are “fallen angels” or “demons” who are out to get you. You are also about to dismiss what you are reading as just some crackpot writing about something he has utterly no idea about.

You know there are demons- why you may have even seen them “cast out” with your very own eyes, or better yet, you may feel you were led of the spirit to “know” thatxx c there is an evil spirit world full of rebellious fallen angels who attempt to thwart God at every opportunity.

For clarity sake, and to forge a direct challenge to any thinking person in an attempt to have them try to “prove” me wrong, let me state categorically that there is no such thing as a “fallen angel” the way most people think. There was never a “war” in heaven led by something thought to be named “Lucifer” (when he was supposedly a “good” guy), and this Lucifer/Satan never took a third of all of God’s angels with him. There is no supernatural evil spirit domain that is an antagonist to the Almighty God!

When someone in the Arab world calls the United States “The Great Satan” few Americans realize that the Arabs are using the word “satan” precisely as it is intended and in total accordance with the meaning of that word. Satan simply means “adversary”. The United States is the greatest adversary imaginable to the intent of Islamo-fascism. This, however, in no way makes America an evil spirit being- just an enemy. Furthermore, the typical Jew also knows exactly what the Arab means. Yet, the typical American perceives the word to mean that they are calling us (figuratively?) an evil spirit being who lives in constant opposition to the God of Abraham, etc.

How did we get to the point where nearly everyone else knows what “satan” is and means biblically, except for most of those who call themselves Christian? Then, the follow-up question of the hour becomes, almost a ditto, except for substituting “demon” for satan. Why is the belief in evil spirit beings called demons such an integral part of the teaching of most churches, when it can be readily shown from history that there were no such things in ancient Israel , or even in the New Testament (Messianic writings)?

Daemon is the Greek word for Demon and it means to distribute. In the ancient world Daemon were departed ancestors who either distributed fortunes or brought evil. Daemons were associated with tree worship, Venus, Asteroth, Easter, Ishtar, Semiramis, Baal, Tammuz. Tree worship extends all the way back to the Garden and the goddess of fertility or queen of heaven is a perversion of Eve.

Start at the beginning-

We must go way back in history and examine something that is mostly misunderstood by virtually all of those professing themselves to be christians today. The result is then misused to form the very basis of the distorted viewpoint and belief- spirit beings called demons.

We begin with the use of the word “elohim”, which in the Hebrew writings is often translated “god” “God” “judge” and so-forth.

The very first thing we need to realize is that the word “god” (or God) is NOT a translation of the word elohim. Elohim means- mighty one (plural intensive- singular meaning) or mighty ones, and as a result is used as a term describing- rulers, judges, princes, god or gods, godlike, etc. Thus, the word “elohim” is not a, or the, proper name of an entity, it is just a noun. The word dog is not the name of a dog, it is simply the term we use to identify a four-legged animal of the genus canine. Fido is a name of a dog, so if someone said that Fido is his dog, we would immediately realize that “dog” is not a last name of Fido, but simply that Fido is a canine. In English, we have come to use the word “god” as a replacement for the Hebrew word elohim. Furthermore, we have capitalized “G”od and not capitalized god- depending upon what we think we are referring to. The Hebrew makes no such distinction- a point we dare not overlook or fail to consider. Much confusion and errant doctrine would be avoided were we to simply insert “might one(s)” for elohim when translating to English from Hebrew- regardless of who or what it applied to!

Abraham was an elohim (god) in the Old Testament.

Ge 23:6  Hear us, my lord: thou art a mighty <0430> prince among us: in the choice of our sepulchres bury thy dead; none of us shall withhold from thee his sepulchre, but that thou mayest bury thy dead. (AV)

Moses was an elohim (god) to Aaron.

Ex 4:16  He shall speak for you to the people; and he shall be a mouth for you, and you shall be to him as God. (RSV)

Moses was a god to Pharaoh.

Ex 7:1  And the LORD said unto Moses, See, I have made thee a god <0430> to Pharaoh: and Aaron thy brother shall be thy prophet. (AV)

A Plague was an elohim.

Ex 9:28  Intreat the LORD (for it is enough) that there be no more mighty <0430> thunderings and hail; and I will let you go, and ye shall stay no longer.

Human leaders were elohim.

Ex 22:9  For all manner of trespass, whether it be for ox, for ass, for sheep, for raiment, or for any manner of lost thing, which another challengeth to be his, the cause of both parties shall come before the judges <0430>; and whom the judges <0430> shall condemn, he shall pay double unto his neighbour.

Are we starting to get the picture? Anciently, anyone of notoriety, nobility, elevated rank or position could be an elohim (god) – no one thought these gods were supernatural spirit beings.

Were the pagan “gods” imaginary beings? No! The “gods” of the other nations were all based on real things. A god might have been a frog or an insect, or it might have been a deceased human leader- such as Nimrod. Many dead humans were known by names other than the one they had when alive. The following gods were all once humans by another name: Easter (Ishtar), Isis, Ra, Zeus, Merodach, Jupiter, and many others.

A thought for later- Why did worshipers of “false” gods worship their god(s)? What did they hope or expect from a dead ancestor? Think about it for a while.

When we consider that “false” gods were not “made up”, but were once real persons or things, we can begin to understand just what the Creator (god or God in English) meant when we read:

Ex 20:1  And God <0430> spake all these words, saying,

Ex 20:2  I am the LORD thy God <0430>, which have brought thee out of the land of Egypt , out of the house of bondage.

Ex 20:3  Thou shalt have no other gods <0430> (mighty ones) before me.

Our Elohim (god) and Creator declared Himself to be the proverbial Top Dog of all dogs.

Today, we use the word “god” much differently than anciently. However, if we fail to understand how the ancients used the word, we will fail to understand the very book we need to understand more than any other. We must understand the meaning and use of the word elohim in the cultural context it appears in- not in our cultural context of the 21st century- or the 17th century.

Here is the typical use of the word elohim- that we think means “god”. The following is translated from ancient Shumarian texts and is excerpted from a paper on elohim by Wayne Atchison. This paper is available by emailing us at info@israelofgod.org.

“…the protecting king of the city, brother of the God Zamama; who firmly founded the farms of Kish …”

“…who rules by law; who gave back to the city of Ashur its protecting God; who let the name of Ishtar of Nineveh remain in E-mish-mish…”

“8. If any one steal cattle or sheep, or an ass, or a pig or a goat, if it belong to a God or to the court…”

“110. If a sister of a God open a tavern…”

“127. If any one point the finger (slander) at a sister of a God or the wife of any one, and can not prove it…”

“…When he reads the record, let him pray with full heart to Marduk (an ancient God), my lord, and Zarpanit, my lady; and then shall the protecting Deitiesand the Gods, who frequent E-Sagil,…”

“…may the great God (by context is Anu), the Father of the Gods, who has ordered my rule, withdraw from him the glory of royalty, break his scepter, curse his destiny…”

The primary point is that in the ancient cultures men were “Gods”.  That is, men were “Elohim(s)”.  The word “God” was a social status given only to the elite class of men.  Being called “a God” did not mean that you were “a spirit being”; everyone knew you were going to die.  Thus, “God” was a title, and it meant that they had “deity-like status” in the community, and received regular offerings from the populace to maintain their wealth and lifestyles.

Consider these known facts about the ancient cultures

1.  Families had “protecting Gods”.  No they were not all dead, usually they were still alive and the family directly relied upon them for protection (soldiers) and good-fortune (aid in emergencies).

2.  Cities had their own “protecting Gods”.  Originally “the Gods” were men who owned the cities.  Originally these men decided who would be the city’s King, Captains, Sheriff, and Priests.  Later their Priests “took over” these duties.  We see this even to this day.  A King, even the Kings of Europe, is always coronated by a Priest.  It is the Priesthood of a God that “okays” the King’s authority.

3.  Armies had their own “protecting Gods”.  The soldiers would march and battle in the name of their “Gods”.  The Roman armies marched in the name of their “Ancestral Gods”.  They purposefully left it vague to embrace soldiers from all foreign lands.

4.  If a city was conquered by another “God”, then its population had to start worshipping “that victorious God”.  That is, they had to start giving offerings to the conquering “God”.  For example during the Crusades and often during the Middle Ages the Catholic Church used this same concept to order armies to conquer villages, and then they would force everyone to be baptized into “The Church”.  Tribute-money is just another form of “making an offering” to the conquering “God”.  Thus, over time, there became almost no distinction between “The Conquering God” and “The Kingdom” doing the conquering.

5.  Not all “Gods” were still alive.  Priests of dead “Gods” still erected temples to the dead men so that they could still receive offerings so that they still had an income.  With the income came power.  For example:  Baal was worshipped by Israel .  Baal was a real person, a real king, a real “God”.  But he was dead. But that did not matter, his Priests still gladly took the people’s offerings anyway.  Offerings to the “Gods” was a big-business enterprise:  erect temples, collect offerings, get rich, and wield political power.

Now, what does all this have to do with Demons? Everything! Remember- Follow the Money!

People looked to their Elohim for fortune, blessing, and favor. When these humans died, people continued to look for their dead elohim to bless them with fortune and so forth. Each culture, people, and nation had their own set of elohim to which they looked for good fortune, destinies, etc. Thus, elohim- as “deities” were thought of as being able “to distribute fortune” to the petitioner.

The Greek word translated to demon is daimon. The Greek word- in the Greek culture- meant: deity, tutelary divinity, genius, and only later “an evil spirit”.

Now you are asking, “What is a tutelary divinity”?

Glad you asked. A tutelary divinity is a guardian or protector of a person, place or thing. We might think of our own cultures use of “God-parent”.

Now you are asking, “What is meant by- genius”?

In the Greek, we form genesis, meaning the origin or source. In Arabic we say, “jinn”, which is also a reference to our ancestral roots of origin. Gen-ius also includes those attendant spirits, tutelary divinities, and of all things- genies. Are you starting to see the picture? Remember- Follow the Money!

Dead ancestors- even with a priesthood encouraging followers to offer money for favor (to the willingly receptive priesthood, of course).

“Jinn”- ditto above.

And what do you do if you find a magic lamp??? Don’t you rub it three times and a “genie” pops out and offers you three wishes? What do you suppose those who find and rub the lamp are likely to wish for?- Fortune, Wealth, Favor, etc.?

At the time of the writing of the New Testament we had a world steeped in superstition- even the Jews in Judea ! This was something that Jesus/Yeshua had to deal with, but the superstition of that day has continued intact to this very day. Thus, we attribute meanings into words and biblical events that just did not exist and were not a part of what was said or meant more than 2,000 years ago.

The root word for the Greek daimon is daio and simply means- to distribute fortune. 

People looked to their dead ancestors for favor and hoped that they- from the “great beyond”- would distribute fortune to their descendants.

What is a totem pole? What is a “grove” in ancient Israel ?  Same thing, a stick in the ground that represents their dead ancestors- that is then worshiped in the hope of the distribution of fortune…to the petitioner!

Demons are deities, which are just dead ancestors, but how does all this fit into the New Testament and how do we explain those “obvious” verses?

First, we need to complete the look into the use of the word daimon in the time of Jesus/Yeshua. In this paper we have discussed the Hebrew word “elohim” and the Greek word daimon. It should now be noted that the Greek word “theos” is used to translate the Hebrew word “elohim” when used or quoted in the New Testament from the Old Testament (TANAK). Why use theos and not daimon if a daimon is an elohim? Daimon, or demons, are deities and elohim, but in particular daimon is used to refer to deities who are ancestors, and thus human, although typically dead and buried, so to speak. Quite literally, by definition, these daimon, or daimonion, are a lower class God, an inferior deity. They are not on the level of the Supreme God, or other high ranking gods of a particular society. These daimonion (demons) are ministers, messengers, attendants, etc., of bigger and stronger gods, which in Greek are called “theos”. Even the errant understanding that demons are evil spirit beings (fallen angels) places them in subjection to the “big” cheese supposedly over them- “Satan”.

We may further note- concerning the understanding of daimon in the cultural Greek of the New Testament era- from John Epps book, The Devil Exposed ( Ch. 5, Pg. 2) (ed. note- bold type is IoG):

In what sense, then, was the word daimon used by the Greek writers? A most extended inquiry by Mr. Farmer has established that the Greek writers used this word to express human “spirits” of departed people. Many such “spirits” of departed human beings the ancients deified and worshipped: and hence the word daimon meant to the Greeks, and those who used their language, human departed “spirits” raised to the rank of gods and deities. “Homer calleth all his gods, daimones, and Hesoid the worthies of the golden age.” Leigh’s Critica Sacra, article Daimon. Hesoid maintains, indeed, that whenever a good man dies he becomes a demon: and Plato praises him for the sentiment.

We need to recognize two things. First, where do most Christians think you go when you die? Heaven, right?  While many of you realize that nowhere does the bible make such a promise, it is nevertheless the predominant viewpoint of those professing to be a Christian. It is interesting to note that there is little to no difference conceptually with those who look to their demons (daimon) for favor and those who believe their dead (the good one’s anyway) ancestors are still living, but in heaven- which is where they also look for favor from their God- who just happens to be “over” these ancestors. This is more than co-incidental. We need not spend the time to “connect the dots” here, you may continue your examination and research on this yourself. Be assured, though, the dots do connect and the bible teaches something entirely different than what the typical Christian is taught to believe.

Secondly, the above belief- that when you die you go to heaven- comes right out of the same paganistic belief system that has dead ancestors going to the next life and possessing the ability to influence the distribution of fortune and the bestowing of favors on their favored descendants- if they (the living petitioners) are good, or ask just right, or do what their minister tells them, or pays money to the church (especially on the dead one’s behalf), or…. Say, you don’t suppose Mary or some “Saint” (did I say daimon/demon?) could help me out here, do you? I don’t want to sound ungrateful, but my car has over 100,000 miles on it. I won’t cry, or pout, or be naughty this year. But wait, it just occurred to me, with energy prices being what they are- maybe some coal in the stocking isn’t so bad- and I have just the stocking.

Now, let’s have some fun! More “dots” that connect? Continue…

Follow the Money

Who is one of the best-known demons in the world to this day? This globally recognized demon is known for his distribution of fortune. Little children around the world are taught that he will distribute fortune to them if they are good. Ask almost any little child where this demon lives and they will tell you. Many children are even encouraged to write this demon and make a list of the things they want to receive from this demon. This demon has existed for at least a few thousand years. We note that just before Israel crossed the Red Sea , they passed by a city dedicated to this demon- a point or irony, perhaps. Surely you have guessed who this is by now?

Ex 14:9  But the Egyptians pursued after them, all the horses and chariots of Pharaoh, and his horsemen, and his army, and overtook them encamping by the sea, beside Pihahiroth, before Baalzephon.

Baalzephon was the name of this city and the name means- Lord of the north.

Who “lives” at the North Pole? Who distributes fortune to petitioners every December 25th? Who is perhaps the best-known demon in the world today? Santa Claus! Of course, we all know that this demon was once a real person by the name of Nimrod, but his followers have continued to worship him and his legend eventually became mythology, yet, don’t we all know the little red fat man? Don’t we see his presence in stores every year? And- why- Follow the Money!

OK, but how did Nimrod come to have such a broad acceptance?

Remember that earlier in this paper we showed that historically families, cities, and even armies all had “protecting” gods. While others may have tried this previously, Rome became quite good at it- when they would conquer someone, they would expand Rome ’s “gods” (dead ancestors of Romans) to include the newly conquered people, too. Thus, those defeated could in effect retain their old religion and gods (and demons) and also have a common interest with their captors- Rome . This enabled Rome to possess better control over the local population, since they were now all on the same page religiously. Then, as the occupied was incorporated into the army, they would have no significant religious differences from other conquered peoples they would fight alone side of, in fact, they would now share the same gods. This was a great unifying move by Rome and allowed them tremendous flexibility strategically. The development of these “generic” gods and demons (lower gods) was a brilliant stoke of genius.

In Nimrod’s case, there were others in positions of power who were more than willing to propagate the continuance of Nimrod’s influence after his death- since it meant Money and Power for them. From there the established acceptance has continued to this very day.

Later we will address the various “scriptures” that are commonly used to prove there are evil spirit beings called demons. But this concludes the foundational aspect of this paper. Any thoughts, comments, or questions are welcomed and you may email me at info@israelofgod.org

If there is anything you feel should be added to this, or other portions of the overall paper, please notify me at the above email, as well.

It is my desire that we may all shed superstitious beliefs and uncover the authentic mighty one of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob- the mighty one of Israel , the one true mighty one…Richard Fix

Demons Distributors of Fortune at Christ-mas

Mark of the beast – The tree in the Garden – 3 Wishes

Jeremiah 10

King James Version (KJV)

10 Hear ye the word which the Lord speaketh unto you, O house of Israel:

Thus saith the Lord, Learn not the way of the heathen, and be not dismayed at the signs of heaven; for the heathen are dismayed at them.

For the customs of the people are vain: for one cutteth a tree out of the forest, the work of the hands of the workman, with the axe.

They deck it with silver and with gold; they fasten it with nails and with hammers, that it move not.

They are upright as the palm tree, but speak not: they must needs be borne, because they cannot go. Be not afraid of them; for they cannot do evil, neither also is it in them to do good.

Luke 8 Possessed with demon – the word means to be crazy or insane. Someone not taking the instruction of God.

When Jesus cast the demons out, he cast it out of the self of man. Demon comes from daiblo – to distribute fortune, a god that would distribute fortunes, a deity. It all started in the garden. Diablos mean to cast out. Eve cast out God instruction.

Mark of the beast

Charagma – Rev:13: The word mark it means etching. An etching is a character. This is the same word as name, same meaning onoma. Onoma means character or authority. Your character is what you are. Your reputation is what people think you are.

There are none good, Romans 3.

Charax means a stake on a boundary, on a boundary line. Rev:13 the beast world system verse Rev 13.2 verse Rev 13.11 the second beast who speaks for the world beast system. George Bush Sr. spoke of a new world order.

Image created to the beast. The word image is icon, it means likeness. The likeness of the world beast system is Babylon, Persia, Greece and Rome, the RCC system. Tolerance, politically correct is the beast system.

Babylon started in Gen 11. But the Babylon system was a reproduction of the garden where it started. The mark of the best then has to be found in the garden. The system of self.

Rev 13.15:  likeness of the beast is it character. Rom 8:29 same word. Likeness, not statue, likeness.
Rev 13.16: receive a Charagma. The mark shows who you serve. Deu 6:8 the sign (mark) defined.
Rev 13.17: mark or name. Or means to say

Evil | Good
Fulfill self | Die to self.

The world beast system will be a system of tolerance. Rev 17:5 Babylon mother of all idolatry. Gen 4 – 5 the lineage of Seth or Abel. Babylon was not he origin of sin, the garden was. Eve said Cain was virgin born.

God has a character and the beast has a character. The beast is not a man it is a system.

Rev 13:2: His is the word autos can be masc or neuter gender. But you have to follow the gender of the antecedent. The antecedent is the noun that his refers back to. The beat is also neuter gender so all the he’s and him are neuter gender therefore it reads its.

Is there a character (mark) of Satan in the garden? Yes.

There is a tree in the middle of the garden. God say you can eat of all trees, but not of the one in the midst of it. Stan tell eve to go into the garden and fulfill self.

The Christmas Tree In The Garden – 3 Wishes

The Sun god Lawless Delusion – Mark of the Beast

Demons: Distributors of fortune

1 John 2:16King (KJV)

16 For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world.

The Three wishes or sins are:

1. The lust of the flesh

2. The lust of the eyes

3. The pride of life

Jeremiah 10 (KJV)

10 Hear ye the word which the Lord speaketh unto you, O house of Israel:

Thus saith the Lord, Learn not the way of the heathen, and be not dismayed at the signs of heaven; for the heathen are dismayed at them.

For the customs of the people are vain: for one cutteth a tree out of the forest, the work of the hands of the workman, with the axe.

They deck it with silver and with gold; they fasten it with nails and with hammers, that it move not.

They are upright as the palm tree, but speak not: they must needs be borne, because they cannot go. Be not afraid of them; for they cannot do evil, neither also is it in them to do good.

Luke 8 Possessed with demon – the word means to be crazy or insane. Someone not taking the instruction of God.

When Jesus cast the demons out, he cast it out of the self of man. Demon comes from daiblo – to distribute fortune, a god that would distribute fortunes, a deity. It all started in the garden. Diablos mean to cast out. Eve cast out God’s instructions.

MARK OF THE BEAST – THE TREE IN THE GARDEN – 3 WISHES

Daemon is the Greek word for Demon and it means to distribute. In the ancient world Daemon were departed ancestors who either distributed fortunes or brought evil. Daemons were associated with tree worship, Venus, Asteroth, Easter, Ishtar, Semiramis, Baal, Tammuz. Tree worship extends all the way back to the Garden and the goddess of fertility or queen of heaven is a perversion of Eve.

Mark of the beast

Charagma – Rev:13: The word mark it means etching. An etching is a character. This is the same word as name, same meaning onoma. Onoma means character or authority. Your character is what you are. Your reputation is what people think you are.

There are none good, Romans 3.

Charax means a stake on a boundary, on a boundary line. Rev:13 the beast world system verse Rev 13.2 verse Rev 13.11 the second beast who speaks for the world beast system. George Bush Sr. spoke of a new world order.

Image created to the beast. The word image is icon, it means likeness. The likeness of the world beast system is Babylon, Persia, Greece and Rome, the RCC system. Tolerance, politically correct is the beast system.

Babylon started in Gen 11. But the Babylon system was a reproduction of the garden where it started. The mark of the best then has to be found in the garden. The system of self.

Rev 13.15:  likeness of the beast is it character. Rom 8:29 same word. Likeness, not statue, likeness.
Rev 13.16: receive a Charagma. The mark shows who you serve. Deu 6:8 the sign (mark) defined.
Rev 13.17: mark or name. Or means to say

Evil | Good
Fulfill self | Die to self.

The world beast system will be a system of tolerance. Rev 17:5 Babylon mother of all idolatry. Gen 4 – 5 the lineage of Seth or Abel. Babylon was not he origin of sin, the garden was. Eve said Cain was virgin born.

God has a character and the beast has a character. The beast is not a man it is a system.

Rev 13:2: His is the word autos can be masc or neuter gender. But you have to follow the gender of the antecedent. The antecedent is the noun that his refers back to. The beat is also neuter gender so all the he’s and him are neuter gender therefore it reads its.

Is there a character (mark) of Satan in the garden? Yes.

There is a tree in the middle of the garden. God say you can eat of all trees, but not of the one in the midst of it. Stan tell eve to go into the garden and fulfill self.

1. Early Christians had a soft spot for pagans

It’s a mistake to say that our modern Christmas traditions come directly from pre-Christian paganism, said Ronald Hutton, a historian at Bristol University in the United Kingdom. However, he said, you’d be equally wrong to believe that Christmas is a modern phenomenon. As Christians spread their religion into Europe in the first centuries A.D., they ran into people living by a variety of local and regional religious creeds.

Christian missionaries lumped all of these people together under the umbrella term “pagan,” said Philip Shaw, who researches early Germanic languages and Old English at Leicester University in the U.K. The term is related to the Latin word meaning “field,” Shaw told LiveScience. The lingual link makes sense, he said, because early European Christianity was an urban phenomenon, while paganism persisted longer in rustic areas.

Early Christians wanted to convert pagans, Shaw said, but they were also fascinated by their traditions.

“Christians of that period are quite interested in paganism,” he said. “It’s obviously something they think is a bad thing, but it’s also something they think is worth remembering. It’s what their ancestors did.”

Perhaps that’s why pagan traditions remained even as Christianity took hold. The Christmas tree is a 17th-century German invention, University of Bristol’s Hutton told LiveScience, but it clearly derives from the pagan practice of bringing greenery indoors to decorate in midwinter. The modern Santa Claus is a direct descendent of England’s Father Christmas, who was not originally a gift-giver. However, Father Christmas and his other European variations are modern incarnations of old pagan ideas about spirits who traveled the sky in midwinter, Hutton said.

2. We all want that warm Christmas glow

But why this fixation on partying in midwinter, anyway? According to historians, it’s a natural time for a feast. In an agricultural society, the harvest work is done for the year, and there’s nothing left to be done in the fields.

“It’s a time when you have some time to devote to your religious life,” said Shaw. “But also it’s a period when, frankly, everyone needs cheering up.”

The dark days that culminate with the shortest day of the year ­— the winter solstice — could be lightened with feasts and decorations, Hutton said.

“If you happen to live in a region in which midwinter brings striking darkness and cold and hunger, then the urge to have a celebration at the very heart of it to avoid going mad or falling into deep depression is very, very strong,” he said.

Stephen Nissenbaum, author of the Pulitzer Prize finalist “The Battle for Christmas” (Vintage, 1997), agreed.

“Even now when solstice means not all that much because you can get rid of the darkness with the flick of an electric light switch, even now, it’s a very powerful season,” he told LIveScience.

3. The Church was slow to embrace Christmas

Despite the spread of Christianity, midwinter festivals did not become Christmas for hundreds of years. The Bible gives no reference to when Jesus was born, which wasn’t a problem for early Christians, Nissenbaum said.

“It never occurred to them that they needed to celebrate his birthday,” he said.

With no Biblical directive to do so and no mention in the Gospels of the correct date, it wasn’t until the fourth century that church leaders in Rome embraced the holiday. At this time, Nissenbaum said, many people had turned to a belief the Church found heretical: That Jesus had never existed as a man, but as a sort of spiritual entity.

“If you want to show that Jesus was a real human being just like every other human being, not just somebody who appeared like a hologram, then what better way to think of him being born in a normal, humble human way than to celebrate his birth?” Nissenbaum said.

Midwinter festivals, with their pagan roots, were already widely celebrated, Nissenbaum said. And the date had a pleasing philosophical fit with festivals celebrating the lengthening days after the winter solstice (which fell on Dec. 21 this year). “O, how wonderfully acted Providence that on that day on which that Sun was born … Christ should be born,” one Cyprian text read.

4. The Puritans hated the holiday

But if the Catholic Church gradually came to embrace Christmas, the Protestant Reformation gave the holiday a good knock on the chin. In the 16th century, Christmas became a casualty of this church schism, with reformist-minded Protestants considering it little better than paganism, Nissenbaum said. This likely had something to do with the “raucous, rowdy and sometimes bawdy fashion” in which Christmas was celebrated, he added.

In England under Oliver Cromwell, Christmas and other saints’ days were banned, and in New England it was illegal to celebrate Christmas for about 25 years in the 1600s, Nissenbaum said. Forget people saying, “Happy holidays” instead of “Merry Christmas,” he said.

“If you want to look at a real ‘War on Christmas,’ you’ve got to look at the Puritans,” he said. “They banned it!” Stephanie Pappas

Deception In The Church – A Call for Discernment – Justin Peters

A Call for Discernment – False Prophets Exposed

Justin Peters Ministries – “A Call for Discernment” is a Biblical Critique of the Word of Faith Movement (more commonly known as the Health and Wealth or Prosperity Gospel).

A Call for Discernment Session 1 – Dangerous Doctrine

Visit Justin Peter Website

This video is a recording of Justin Peter’s presentation at Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary. It is not, of course, A Call for Discernment in its entirety, but rather a brief overview of it in which Rev. Peters presents a few highlights from each of the three primary sessions.

In addition to expository preaching, another aspect of Justin’s ministry is the three session seminar which he has developed entitled A Call for Discernment. This seminar is a fair, comprehensive, biblical critique of the modern Word of Faith movement. Word of Faith theology (WoF) dominates Christian satellite and cable television and is making alarming inroads into more theologically conservative, evangical churches. This seminar contains dozens of audio and video clips (primarily the latter) of various WoF leaders such as Benny Hinn, Kenneth and Gloria Copeland, Jessie Duplantis, Joyce Meyer, Joel Osteen, T. D. Jakes, Creflo Dollar, Eddie Long, – Benny Hinn, Frederick K.C. Price, Jan and Paul Crouch, K.A. Paul, Paula And Randy White, Mike Murdock, Rod Parsley, John Hagee, etc. etc. incorporated into a PowerPoint format. This format allows people to see and hear for themselves what these individuals are actually teaching. Everything then is, in turn, balanced with Scripture.

Each session is approximately 70 to 75 minutes in length. A Call for Discernment can be structured and scheduled according to the desires of the pastor or conference organizer.

Life After Death?

The namesake of the oldest book in the Bible, Job, asked the question, “If a man die, shall he live again?” (Job 14:14) The question of life after death has occupied the thoughts of man for all of his history. Just the fact that you are now reading this text bears witness to the fact that this most universal of all questions has occupied your thoughts as well.

Dear friend, allow me to share with you what God’s Word has to teach us about this subject. The Bible (both Old and New Testaments) gives us abundant evidence that man was created by God to live eternally. The sense of eternity is universal; a general belief in man’s mortal present but immortal future can be found in all cultures throughout the world. The question is, then, ‘What happens when I die?’

Session 2 – Mangled Manifestations

Most people today believe that if, generally speaking, they are a good person then they will go to Heaven. In other words, if their good deeds outweigh their bad deeds, or, as long as they sincerely try to live a good life, then God will accept them.

There is actually some truth to this. If a person dies and truly is a good and righteous person, then he is assured of an eternity in Heaven. There’s just one problem, though: the Bible makes it quite clear that there are no inherently good people. Romans 3:10 states, “There is none righteous, no not one.”

I know, I know. It sounds very brash and harsh to claim that there are no good people to be found anywhere. After all, one may wonder, ‘What about people like Mother Theresa, Gandhi, or Billy Graham? Weren’t (or in the latter case, aren’t) they good people? Well, by human standards I would be the first to answer that question with a resounding Yes. Though I would disagree with some of them on some theological issues, I would say that all of them were, or are, humble people who consistently placed others above themselves. History will look kindly on all of these individuals as being selfless people with high moral standards and personal integrity.

A Call for Discernment Session 3 – The Hurt of Healing

The problem, though, lies in the fact that God does not judge us by man’s standards, He judges us by His. What exactly are those standards? They are, very simply, the 10 Commandments. If a man could live by all of the 10 Commandments perfectly throughout his life, then he would indeed be a good person by God’s standards and be assured of eternity in Heaven. I invite you to look with me at the 10 Commandments and as we progress, evaluate yourself to see if you measure up to God’s standards.

The Ten Commandments

1. Thou shalt have no other gods before Me

This commandment is not only an injunction not to worship other deities before the true God, Yahweh. It also means that nothing in our lives should ever take priority over God and His will. Has there ever been a time in your life in which something or someone was, even for a moment, more important to you than God? Has God always been your top priority and greatest love?

2. Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven images

If you are reading this, you probably do not have a statue of Buddha or of some other pagan god sitting somewhere in your home that you worship. In the clear, right? Well, not so fast. If you believe things about God that are not supported by Scripture (for example, that God will accept you as long as you ‘try to be a good person’) then you are not worshipping the true God. You have made a god out of your own image. This is called idolatry and is a serious sin.

3. Thou shalt not take the name of the Lord thy God in vain

God takes His good name very seriously. Have you ever misused God’s name in a vulgar or even flippant way? This is called blasphemy.

4. Remember the Sabbath day and keep it holy

Though we should love and serve God every day, He has set aside one day a week for special worship of and service to Him. Has there ever been a Sabbath day in which you slept in or maybe went fishing or to a ballgame instead of going to church?

5. Honor thy father and thy mother

Have you ever disobeyed or dishonored your parents? Have you ever lied to them (and thereby broke two commandments at once)?

6. Thou shalt not murder

Most of us have not actually killed another person. Off the hook, right? Well, the Bible teaches that “Whoever hateth his brother is a murderer” (1 John 3:15). Have you ever hated another individual?

7. Thou shalt not commit adultery

Like many of the Ten Commandments, this one encapsulates more than one might expect just at face value. Jesus said, “whoever looketh upon a woman with lust has committed adultery with her in his heart.” Have you ever looked at a woman with lust? If you are a lady, have you ever done this toward a man?

8. Thou shalt not steal

Have you ever stolen anything regardless of its value?

9. Thou shalt not lie

Who among us has not lied?

10. Thou shalt not covet

This means that we should not desire any possession of another individual whether it be his home, vehicle, boat, wife, social status, prestige – anything.

So, how did you do? If you are anything like me, you probably did not do too well. If you are really honest with yourself, I think that you will find that at one time or another you have broken most, if not all, of God’s commandments. Even if we break only one, it is the same as breaking them all (James 2:10). By God’s standards, then, we are all liars, thieves, idolaters, basphemers, and adulterers. We have all at one time or another dishonored our parents, disregarded the Sabbath, coveted another’s possessions, and not put God first in our lives. So you see, by God’s standards, we are not as good as we might have imagined. The fact of the matter is, we are all sinners (Romans 3:23).

The Consequences of Sin

Almost all people to whom I have shared the Gospel will in fact admit they are sinners upon hearing and understanding the 10 Commandments, but many fail to recognize the gravity of their sin. Some believe that God will just overlook their sin. Others have this notion that God will grade on a curve and reward them because they are not as bad as a, say, Hitler or Stalin or Pol Pot. Friend, if this is your idea of God, let me say that I love you enough to tell you you are wrong – dead wrong. All sin, no matter how insignificant it may seem to us, is an affront to a holy God. The Bible teaches that “The wages of sin is death” (Romans 6:23). This death is a spiritual death and results in eternal separation from God. Please understand, dear one, that this eternal death is not just missing out on Heaven, it is eternal conscious suffering in a very real place the Bible calls Hell. Sin has eternal consequences because it is committed against an eternal God. Once a person enters Hell, there are no second chances, his fate is eternally and tragically sealed.

The Good News

The word “Gospel” means “good news.” The Good News of the Gospel is that God does not want you to go to Hell and loves you enough to have provided a Way of escape. His name is Jesus Christ, the only begotten Son of the living God. Jesus came to earth as fully God and fully man and was the only One to have ever lived a perfect, sinless life. Jesus then willingly laid down His life for us by dying on a Roman cross. He was crucified to pay the penalty of your sins and mine. He became the offering for our sins and therefore satisfied the demands of God’s justice.

But God demonstrates His own love toward us in that while we were yet sinners Christ died for us – Romans 5:8

Then, on the morning of the third day, something amazing happened. God raised Jesus from the dead. All four gospels bear witness to this miraculous event. Jesus was raised and showed Himself very much alive to the disciples and apostles and to more than five hundred at once (1 Corinthians 15:3-7). The bodily resurrection of Jesus Christ is the single most well-attested event in all of ancient history and testifies to the deity of Jesus. The resurrection sets Jesus apart from all other “religious leaders” who came before Him or since.

By being raise from the dead, Jesus has gained victory over sin, death and Hell. He is alive today and stands ready to forgive anyone of his sins who will confess with his mouth Jesus as Lord and believe in his heart that God has raised Him from the dead (Romans 10:9). Jesus and Jesus alone can forgive one of his sins and secure for him escape from Hell and an eternity in Heaven. That is the Good News.

Your Response

According to the Word of God, dear friend, what you decide about Jesus will determine where you spend eternity. No one can earn his salvation by good works (Ephesians 2:8-9). If we could somehow earn God’s favor, then the cross is empty and meaningless. We are forgiven of our sins when we first realize that we are sinners and in need of saving. Then, for the one who believes the Good News and is willing to repent of his sins and trust Jesus as Savior and Lord, salvation is freely given.

Are you ready to forsake your sins and surrender completely to the Lordship of Jesus Christ? Please do not come to Jesus seeking happiness, peace, or some purpose-filled life. Come to Jesus seeking forgiveness of your sins. Come to Him because He alone can deliver you from the judgment that must come to anyone who dies without Him.

Friend, if you come to Christ, please do not expect that your life will all of the sudden be wonderful and without problems. Jesus did not promise anyone this. To the contrary, Jesus promised those who follow Him that they would face trials, persecutions, and be hated by some – maybe even by one’s own family. No, Jesus does not promise an easy life, financial prosperity, or physical healing (contrary to what some preachers would have you believe). He does promise you, though, the greatest gift of all: forgiveness of sins and eternal life. When the inevitable trials of life do come, He will grant His sufficient grace and strength made perfect in weakness (2 Corinthians 12:9). He will grant His peace that surpasses all human understanding (Philippians 4:6-7). This peace and strength comes from knowing that we are forgiven of our sins and that our eternity is secure.

If you have read all of this and are being convicted by the Holy Spirit of God that you need to surrender to Jesus Christ and trust Him as Savior and Lord, I would invite you to do that now. Go to Jesus and ask Him to forgive you and save you. He stands ready to receive you unto Himself and wash your scarlet sins white as snow. If you have made this decision, please write and share with me your new life in Christ. It will be my joy to send you some material to help you in your new walk with Him and to pray for you as my new brother or sister in Christ.

I would encourage you to begin reading your Bible and praying daily. Seek and join a Bible-believing and teaching church. As you grow in your relationship with Jesus, share the Good News with others. May God richly bless and use you for His glory.

I just cannot thank you enough for being faithful to what God has called you to do.  I pray for your travels and for the others that attend your seminar.  You have opened many eyes, and confirmed my own discernment toward these WoF preachers.  I know we are still few, but yet at the same time we are many. God Bless you and your ministry and once again mine and Jennifer’s prayers are with you.  We will be showing your DVD to Jennifer’s dad.  Please keep us in prayer as we minister to those who are tied up in these false teachings.

In God’s Love

Brother Justin,

I came across your name on the Iron Sharpens Iron radio show which  directed me to your web site.   I took the 35 minutes and watched  your video on the Word of Faith movement, I must tell you that God   has moved you in a direction that is needed more now than I think  any time in the past with regards to this damning heresy.

My father has been in this movement for over 20 years, and is a graduate of Rhema Bible Training Center in Tulsa.   He moved my mother from  southern California where I grew up to Tulsa to attend the school.  I have had numerous conversations with him about some of the teachings and I couldn’t believe what I was hearing.  I grew up in an SBC church in San Diego (1st baptist church of Pacific Beach), a church that we all had attended until I left for the Navy back in the late 80s, so to hear what I was hearing was quite a shock.  I have tried numerous times to express to him the heresy that he is part of but as you know, he would not allow any negative talk (and the list goes on and on).  I have him listed on my personal prayer list along with everyone else who has been sucked into this lie.

My grandmother died believing this lie, my only hope is that, before her death she came to know the truth.  I wanted to let you know that I will be praying for you and your ministry, the WOFM needs to be exposed for what it is.

My blessings to you brother as you continue to fight in the spiritual trenches

In His Name,

Hello brother Justin,

I pray this finds you doing well. My husband and I LOVE you and your ministry, and I feel led to share something with you. There are some apologetics ministries who do and teach the same thing that you do regarding the word of faith movement. These ministries are largely ignored (I believe) because they sound judgmental to the hearer regardless that they are right biblically.

God has graced you with a meek spirit and when you teach the truth, it is obviously from a place of love. You and your message will penetrate the walls of the word of faith churches and their followers because of the way you deliver the message (in addition to it being the truth.) What you say comes from a place of love in Christ and if people throw criticism your way, they have obviously ignored your heart motive. I praise God for your ministry. I watch the videos at least once a week so I can get everything in my spirit and go forth proclaiming the truth in love. As someone who came out of the word of faith movement a year ago, I continually need to read and hear the truth. Keep doing what you are doing!

Be Blessed,

Skye Steele


Dear Justin,

You may have very little time to read my email as I am sure your ministry keeps you more than busy! However, I hope that you can find a minute to read these lines as I just want to send you feedback as well as warm wishes from this part of the world.

Your DVD seminar “A call for Discernment” has impacted my life greatly. We have just spent the last few weeks in our little bible study going through it – it was uplifting! (So that you know our leader has been to your seminars J)Uplifting, perhaps an odd word to use in this case but I say uplifting as it shocked me at first but then left me with a great sense of encouragement. Why? Because there are Christians and Christian leaders out there that are fighting to spread the truth and only the truth of what Gods word stands for…..something we need so desperately in this day and age! And I was yet again privileged enough to receive such sound teaching. Uplifting also because I have often felt like a “spiritual failure”, wondering why others seem to have such a high flying Christian life, filled with blessings and gifts  while I battle my little wars everyday and doubt if I am pleasing God enough…..WRONG. I am in a church and bible study that teaches sound biblical truth – I stumble along an unwavering path, narrow and often uncomfortably rocky, but yet so scenic and beautiful to travel………and I wouldn’t want to be anywhere else J Jesus never said it was going to be easy……

I felt immensely privileged to get to “know you” and your work through this DVD and to be fortunate to be touched by your teaching. Although I have known the Lord since I was 8 years old and believed that I could discern relatively well, this DVD gave me a wakeup call regardless and it pushed me to know in my very heart of hearts that we are NEVER to compromise on his word in even the slightest way!

I will be ordering a set for myself as I have a few friends that could be greatly blessed by your teaching and warnings. I hope the ordering via the website works half way across the world J So I close just to say a huge thank you – may our Lord God bless you in a very special way for what you are doing. May he keep you safe and well until we perhaps meet one day…..latest in heaven J

With best wishes and warm regards in Christ our only Lord and Savior,

Hello, Justin,

You were at First Baptist Anderson, AL this past week, and I wanted to let you know how very much my husband and I enjoyed your services. We were able to make all of them except the last night (which we were sad to miss!). It was indeed a breath of fresh air to hear you, and you seem to have a very sweet and humble spirit, and it is obvious that the Holy Spirit is leading you. Thank you for being willing to come to our church.

I just wanted to make a reference to something you said one night that really meant a lot to me. I was saved at age 12. I had no doubt that I was a sinner, that I needed a Savior and that that was Jesus. I asked Jesus to save me, and to take me as one of his own. There was no doubt in my mind that I was a Christian from that time on. Years later, I can remember it always sort of bothered me that I never had said a line for line “sinner’s prayer”. It’s so ingrained into the Baptist mind that you “have” to say the sinner’s prayer, that I even wondered if I had “messed up” by not saying it. I never could come up with a line for line prayer of sorts in the Bible, but it still bothered me. I mean, we have literature printed with the sinner’s prayer on it for crying out loud. Anyway, it blessed my heart and even made me smile when you stated one night that there is no sinner’s prayer in the Bible, and that it’s not “required” articulation for salvation. I knew that in my heart, but it was so good to hear it coming from a “preacher”. Thanks, Justin.

God bless you and your ministry.

Sincerely,

Misty Robertson


Dear Mr. Peters,

I watched the show Wretched for the first time this evening and I received such a blessing watching you.  I would often watch these preachers on tv and I knew in my spirit that there was something wrong.  All they seemed to say was send me your money and God will heal you or provide you with a financial windfall.  Ya know, my grandmother had a saying (actually she had a lot of them) If it sounds too good to be true it probably is.

I have personally been told that I was not saved because I had not spoken in tongues.  I was a brand new Christian and, not knowing any better, it crushed me.  Thank God He brought someone into my life to show me the truth.

The Devil’s been after me for many years.  I was told I must have had unconfessed sin because I got breast cancer.  I know you understand when I say that God Blessed me with breast cancer.  He used me in such an amazing and powerful way during that time, let me say this, I don’t think I’ve ever felt closer to God than I did during that time.

I don’t know why God had me watch this evening, nor do I know why He had me share this with you.  I just know I couldn’t go to bed without writing to you.

May God continue to bless you and your ministry.  Thank you for all you do.

Hi Justin,

I just wanted to write and say again how very much Roger and I appreciated your seminar.  We believe your ministry and the message you have is vitally important.  We look forward to becoming regular supporters, not only financially, but with our prayers and encouragement – and in any other ways you might need.

I can’t explain it, other than the Holy Spirit’s work, but we were very moved by…well…everything about you.  God has gifted you with a gentle spirit, yet you speak with such biblical authority, and you you cause people to hear what you’re saying.  As I said, it’s rather difficult to explain.

It was quite an honor and blessing to meet you and have the chance to talk with you.  Perhaps the next time you’re in the DFW area, we can have that lunch (or dinner) together.  Our home is always open.

We hope you benefit from the Dave Busby videos – that he will minister to you, even as you pour yourself out in ministering to others.

May God continue to bless you, and may He protect you as you travel to OK and then on to CA.  You are in our prayers.  Keep in touch!

In Him,

Gayla & Roger


Blessing Pastor Justin

I hope all is well you and that you’re having a blessed Christmas and will continue with a God filled New Year. My motive for this email is inform you that we have received your Thesis and DVD set after placing our order, thank you (My wife actually ordered it). My wife and I have completely consumed the entire teaching material upon its arrival. It has helped me personally a great deal Pastor, specifically to articulate better what I have been feeling for sometime about the current church my family and I attend for the past 2 years. I’ve had trouble putting my thumb on it until my wife and I had a heart to heart discussion this past summer about things not just lining up with the scriptures, Pastor I’m no bible guru (though my wife is) but I noted that some fundamental biblical thresholds where exceeded by way of teaching in my church which raised a alarm in me. My wife was already uneasy, thus after speaking we agreed its time to be extremely diligent on what is said from the front of the church. Also to take lots of notes and examine everything by the light of the scriptures.

My wife and I quickly found ourselves unpopular after challenging (in Gods Love and in private) a bible teacher on the subject of Healing. The teaching was “Its Gods will for you to be in perfect health” thus we gave an inventory of biblical example on how this is not the case.

Also after my wife’s teaching on basic bible doctrines and apologetics, she taught that the Holy Spirit and its gifts are for everyone and not just a select few.  This basically goes against the grain of those who teach special revelation for a select few.

So thanks again for the material and I would ask that we stay pray fully in contact with each other, I’m very interested in your Ministry so add me to you mailing list. Pray for my family and me as we are obviously seeking another church to call home.

Hi Justin,

It’s so good to hear from you, those who were at your conference still talk about it and others are using your videos to reach out to their friends and family members. In fact, I know of one family’s son who is getting together with his in-laws, who are steeped in Word of Faith teaching – in fact the mother has terminal cancer – to show your video to them, their prayer is that this will free them from the false hope that God is obligated to heal her and to get her to know that whatever happens she is still in God’s hands and He is right there with her.

Hello Mr. Peters,

I had the great pleasure and the great blessing of being among the attendees at your “A Call For Discernment Seminar” at Twin City Fellowship this last weekend. Oh I praise God our Father and our Lord Jesus for the love burden that He has so graciously given you- a passion-that “His name will be great among the nations” this in your defense of His Holy Name, in the defense of the faith, in presenting the pure Gospel of God, for His glory, for the good of all men and for your joy.

The facts in your presentation, exposing this “movement”  for what the Lord calls it from His Word, heresy, “another” gospel, doctrine of demons, false prophets, etc. I thank the Lord, I thank you!! It was biblical, fair, honest and true. I see also that if it not be for His Spirit, the mind of Christ, His word, His Beloved, one could easily become entangled in their message,  the things of the world, the passing pleasures, it’s appeal to the carnal flesh is very attractive. Thank you for equpping us from Scripture, to give a defense, as well as exposing these deceptions.

The love, gentleness, humility and respect that you display in exposing the great heresies of  these teachings that would have a price tag put on the wonderfully magnificent person and work of  the Lord and Savior Jesus Christ for temporal and mere earthly gain, this opposed to the Great Treasure which is Christ Himself.

Personally-much of my professing Christian family is deceived into this “another” Gospel.

If you can, please Sir pray that it please the Lord, to have mercy and compassion on my family and all blinded by satan, bound under the deception, on these “preachers” who would trample under foot the blood of Jesus- to raise them from the dead -alive, grant them repentance, faith, forgiveness in the shed blood of His Son Jesus Christ for His glory and praise, for the salvation of their dear precious souls. As well, keep me faithful to our Lord’s word, who loved me and gave Himself for me…

Sir may the Lord as we continue to press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called us…continue to be kept humble, kept faithful to His word, continue to draw near to the throne of grace, growing in faith, truth and love…that we all continue to grow in the grace and knowledge of Jesus Christ, being transformed in our hearts and minds, to be conformed to the image of the likeness of our dear Savior-Jesus Christ to whom belongs all things.

Thank You!!

Soli Deo Gloria,
Marquis


Pastor Justin,

I spoke to you briefly after the end of the seminar today at Twin City Fellowship but I also want you to have in print what I relayed to you about your presentation.

I went to the seminar fully expecting another expose’ on the ministers of the Word of Faith movement.  It was that and so very much more.  You taught us where all the scriptures are that all of the WOF ministers are violating or misusing.  You kept our full attention with your loving and gentle method of presentation.  I could personally see that you are a man that truly loves our Lord Jesus Christ and are willing to do your part in defending him.  You blessed me with your presence and your presentation.  I can’t wait for my wife to see your DVD and hopefully to pass it on to her daughter who is deeply associated with a WOF church in El Paso, Texas (Abundant Faith Living Center, pastored by Charles Nieman).  This will probably create a chasm between me and her daughter but my desire for the truth about Jesus Christ and her salvation are far more important the the division that will be caused. (or maybe there won’t be a division!)

Another point that impacted me from your presentation was your comment about your crutches and how you won’t need them or even think about them when you get to Heaven.  There will be much more important things to be considering, Jesus Christ and worshipping and praising him.  I always hear people questioning whether there will be dogs in heaven, will I see my loved one there, etc.  I have no concern about that.  I can only hope to be focusing on Him as everybody that is there should be as well.

Again, I thank you for bringing us your very critical seminar.  May God continue to bless you and keep you working your ministry.

Respectfully,

Samuel P. Madrid


Hello Justin,

I have just watched some of your seminar on the Word of Faith movement. It was an extract, so I’m not sure what it was called. (We don’t get much good teaching here in the UK). I have to say, your work is an inspiration to me and my family. We don’t go to church because they kicked us out (for teaching the bible), so we use American preachers as out priest at home.

You are one of the many brilliant testimonies of GOD’s work. I, myself was born with a cleft lip and pallet and have been in hospital more times than I have had hot dinners! Because of this I too was saved at an early age, 1994 at 5 years old. Three years ago I had a cardiac arrest and nearly died in my tenth and final operation. It made me realize that we can never always know what GOD is doing in our lives, and can take life at any moment he chooses. It is so lovely to see someone with such difficulties, marching out into the world proclaiming the Gospel. Our little ‘underground church’ is so thankful for your teachings. You are truly a man blessed by GOD, you have so much at wisdom at such a young age!

Can I ask, are you planning to come to the UK? This country is in such need of the Gospel. The only preaching’s on TV are that of Benny Hinn and the Copelands (ergh!). However, once a month, Bob Mitchell talks (not sure if you have heard of him, he is an end times person, and does it in his spare time). The only way us Brits can feast on Bible food, is by streaming and listening wherever possible on the internet.

Thank you for all your work, brother in CHRIST. God bless x

Dear Justin Peters,

I would first like to thank Jesus Christ for your life and ministry. In this age of deception your DVD’s and seminar’s in the UK and America have been a blessing not only to my self but thousands of other believers. I pray and hope that you continue with your ministry and would like to personally thank you for what Jesus has achieved through you. I was caught up in the wealth/heath gospel movement and only through God’s grace did I come to realise that it was false and that I was heading for Hell. It is bible teachers like you who made me realise the error of the movement and turn towards the true gospel.

Mr Peters I firmly believe that your ministry is needed most in Africa and other 3rd world countries where the world faith movement is destroying the body of Christ. I come from Kenya and still have links there although I currently reside in the UK and have personally witnessed how multiples of people have fallen prey to the blatant lies of this movement.

Its not going to be easy and you will most certainly face alot of opposition but if there is anyway I can help, please do not hesitate to contact me.

May the Lord our God Bless you and Keep you

Hello Mr Peters

My name is Janine and I am christian living in East London, South Africa. My family and I recently watched your seminar on a call for discernment and were instantly touched. You see, we were born as Catholics (some of my family members are still Catholics) and also spent some time visiting and being involved in word of faith churches. About 2 years ago a dear relative of mine lost his life to cancer. It was unexpected as he was healthy and only 47years of age. However, about 3 years before he died he fell in love with Jesus and all he wanted was his family to embrace the truth. He read the word day and night and tried to share the word at every opportunity he had. But our ears wouldnt listen, our hearts wouldnt accept. During the time since his passing some of us have had the opportunity to finally learn the truth for the first time. You might find that strange as I initially mentioned we were born into Christianity. After my uncles passing we soon realised that we have to start unlearning many of doctrines previously accepted. We went from the Catholic Church that didnt really encourage us to read God’s word to charismatic churches with their own set of teachings. The younger folk in the family like myself found the services far too monotonous and boring. The charismatic churches offered “excitement” but also alot of false teachings.

I am a believer in God’s perfect timing and for me watching the seminar both confirmed and re-inforced the truth even more. I currently dont attend church regularly as I am still finding a church where I fit in. I have labelled myself as a Christian for many years but only recently have I discovered the power of God’s word – it’s simple you have to read the bible everyday to strengthen your relationship with God. Also, how else does one get to know God?

East London is small city along the east coast of South Africa. TBN is also broadcasted here. Benny Hinn and co have visited EL. I personally havent been to any crusades although some of family members have been. There was a huge revival here last year hosted by the River Ministeries based in EL. Many word of faith preachers based overseas were involved in this revival. I think people in South Africa will most definitely benefit from your seminars. I find it shocking and scary that there are several false preachers with thousands of followers.

I pray that the Lord may bless you and your ministry as you continue to share the REAL TRUTH with God’s people. Those who know the truth need to share it. I am beginning to wander how many in this world do know the truth and have embraced it, especially in view of what is happening at the moment.

God bless you and your ministry.

Kind Regards

Janine Munsamy and family


Reformed Baptist Indonesia – February 2 at 8:48pm

Hallo Mr.Justin Peters,on behalf on my congregation I would like to thank you for your generousity and kindness for giving us dvd teaching materials.Im sure if it based on the biblical teaching it must be a help for us very much,because we are now in Indonesia are facing persecution and challenge from other faith (moslem )and our goverment.From the internal christian circle,Indonesia Christian face a rise of prosperity theology,word of faith movement, charismatic movement,etc. that confused our plain and simple christian people. We hope your teaching from the dvd source would would give our people a clarity of mind and a firm fondation about biblical and baptistic doctrine to unmasking the lie of the false teaching..We have also pray for you and your ministry..God bless you ! Thank you!


Hi Justin or whoever is reading this.

I’m writing to share my joy in the Lord. I watched the preview “A call for discernment” on youtube in December and decided to make Bulgarian subtitles for it. Today the first 10-minute part has become my most watched video on Bulgaria’s biggest Christian video sharing website – http://www.bibliata.tv. The website is generally dominated by prosperity and word of faith preachers.

The videos are being discussed on Christian message boards; people are emailing links back and forth and giving away DVDs with them. For a small country like mine, where almost every church teaches prosperity, it’s a breakthrough.

If there is a DVD with the full seminar, I’d like to make more videos with subs and share them with people for free.

Blessings,

Lora


Hello Justin, I was hoping I would find you on here, I just wanted to say thank you so much for the work you do. I watched a programme of yours a few days ago and was greatly blessed. Your strength and faith greatly encouraged me in my own journey with the Lord. So thank you for following the Lords calling on your life you truely are making a difference to those of us who have not received healing and are left thinking it is our lack of faith, or relationship with our Lord and Saviour.

May God Bless you and keep you

False teachers are proud, they are concerned for their own popularity.

1. False teachers are proud.  They are concerned for their own popularity.  They are concerned for their own fame.  They are concerned for their own notoriety.  They are concerned for their own prestige.  They’re concerned to see themselves and hear themselves in the public eye.  They want large crowds, as it were, to bow down in great homage to them.  They’re characterized by pride and they will do anything to gain the ground they need to gain for the welfare of their own personal ego, including any amount of compromise necessary.

2. Secondly, false teachers are characterized by selfishness.  They tend to be self-centered.  They are concerned for their own comfort.  They are concerned for their own popularity.  They are concerned for their own prosperity.  In the end, it’s all about money, fame, and prestige and notoriety equals an increased bank account.  They are in it for the money and the personal material benefits that they can gain as they endeavor to feed their selfish desires.

3. Thirdly, They are characterized by deception.  They usually can weave a very sophisticated web of deception in their teaching because they tend to be articulate, if they’re going to be successful, and they endeavor to engage other people to aid them in their deceitful enterprise which gives it the, sort of, façade of credibility.

4. They’re not only proud and selfish and deceptive, but [fourthly] they’re irreverent.  If there’s anything that sort of dominates in my thinking about false teachers, it is their irreverence.  They have absolutely no regard for God.  The fact that they would go against God, that they would elevate themselves the way they do, that they would pervert the truth indicates their utter irreverence.  They have little, if any, regard for God, His Word, His truth, His glory, His honor…

5. Finally, they are spiritually destructive.  They seek to use people; they seek to abuse people.  They seek to lead people into error, which destroys them—into sin, which pollutes them.

So, as you look at false teachers with regard to the world, they are proud and they seek fame and popularity.  With regard to themselves, they are self-centered, selfish, self-aggrandizing, self-gratifying.  With regard to the nature of their ministry, they are dishonest and deceptive and lack integrity.  With regard to God, they are utterly irreverent; in fact, they are blasphemous.  And, with regard to the people that they influence, they are spiritually destructive. So, their relationship to the world, their relationship to the ministry, their relationship to themselves, their relationship to God, their relationship to their people all reflects the deviation of their hearts.  John F. MacArthur Jr., Concerns of a True Pastor: Humility and Selflessness, 1998

Today’s preachers along with some who have passed on whose ministry or teachings continue, who are either teaching a false doctrine or are using the Doctrine of our Lord Jesus Christ for the benefit of their own selfishness and gain. Some of these preachers lay claim that Jesus is the only way to Heaven (and they would be right), but at the same time, they preach that personal gain is the main message.  There are many different activities out there by some of these people and we would suggest that you study our Articles Page to discover some of what is going on in today’s Churches. – FWM
