REPENTANCE IS REQUIRED.

Before JESUS CHRIST began HIS ministry as a SON of MAN to announce the fulfillment of the times (i.e. of another milestone event in GOD's purpose and plan), John the Baptist came as a herald to announce HIM. This fulfilled the prophecies of the Prophet Isaiah and the Prophet Malachi about a man that GOD would raise up and send to announce the advent of HIS MESSIAH (Malachi 3:1). John the Baptist most probably had spent all his adult life (i.e. from around his twentieth birthday onward) in the wilderness having mainly locust and honey for his food before the time came for him to commence his ministry and work. This happened when the Word of GOD came to John.

while Annas and Caiaphas were high priests, the word of God came to John the son of Zacharias in the wilderness. And he went into all the region around the Jordan, preaching a baptism of repentance for the remission of sins
Luke 3:2 - 3

What was the message that John preached? Did he say that the time is fulfilled for the commandments of GOD to be done away with? Did he say if you do something wrong or bad or evil just do some penance to atone for them? Did he say we don't have to observe and obey anything anymore? Did he say any of these things? If not then why do we have a mainstream “Christianity” today, of some over two billion people, which teaches these? What was it that he actually said that was recorded and handed down to us today?

Matthew chapter 3 verses 1 and 2.
In those days John the Baptist came preaching in the wilderness of Judea, and saying, “Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is at hand!”

Mark chapter 1 verse 4 to 5.
John came baptizing in the wilderness and preaching a baptism of repentance for the remission of sins. Then all the land of Judea, and those from Jerusalem, went out to him and were all baptized by him in the Jordan River, confessing their sins.

The records of the Gospel of Matthew, Mark and Luke all recorded the same thing and this was that of John the Baptist calling on the Jews to repent as the LORD MESSIAH, the MESSENGER of The Covenant was coming (Matthew 3:3; Luke 3:4; Mark 1:2). Did John the Baptist preach a false Gospel? Was John preaching a message that was contrary to the message of JESUS and HIS Apostles? Did John preach a false message so that Christmas religion could preach the real message?

What about the messages of the Apostles of JESUS CHRIST? What did Paul teach?

Or do you despise the riches of His goodness, forbearance, and longsuffering, not knowing that the goodness of God leads you to repentance?
Romans 2:4

Truly, these times of ignorance God overlooked, but now commands all men everywhere to repent, because He has appointed a day on which He will judge the world in righteousness by the Man whom He has ordained. He has given assurance of this to all by raising Him from the dead.”
Acts 17:30 - 31

What did the JESUS CHRIST's chief Apostle, Peter teach?

Repent therefore and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out, so that times of refreshing may come from the presence of the Lord
Acts 3:9

The Apostle Peter clearly, explicitly taught literally that in order for your sins, the sins that earned you death, to be blotted out you first have to repent, then on repenting to become converted, meaning you have to convert to Christianity to be come a Christian through entering into The Covenant between all the truly and willingly repentant members of mankind with GOD, the FATHER. The Covenant was mediated by the MESSIAH (Daniel 9:25; John 1:41LORD JESUS CHRIST when HE came born as a SON of man in the role as MESSENGER of The Covenant (Malachi 3:1). The Everlasting Covenant made in HIS BLOOD (Luke 22:20; 1 Corinthians 11:25), was instituted and ordained in the commemoration (1 Corinthians 11:26) of HIS death on the Passover.

And what does it mean to become converted, to become a Christian? Are you sure you know what it means to become a Christian? Nearly two billions and a half people alive as of 2015 C.E. think and believe they know, and they believe that they are Christian. Another over one billion who they think and believe that they are of the religion of Abraham the Father of the Faithful though they do not hold themselves to be Christians think that all these nearly two and half billion who think, believe and hold themselves to be Christians are actually, really Christians, the true followers and disciples of JESUS CHRIST. Almost all the rest of the over seven billion people alive in the world as of 2015 C.E. outside of these over three and half billion, also think, believe and hold that these nearly two billion people who think, believe and hold themselves to be Christian are really, actually Christians. But are they? Please read ‘Christianity — Know The Basics’ in the post ‘Why Create Life Through The Process Of Evolution’ for the discussion on what is the process to become converted, to become a Christian, a true Christian and not to become some fraudulent identity thieving murderer instead.

The Apostles of JESUS all preached the very same message as John the Baptist. That was the record of all the New Testament Scriptures.

How about the prophets of GOD in the Old Testament times did they preach a different gospel?

if My people who are called by My name will humble themselves, and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land.
2 Chronicles 7:14

And testified against them, That You might bring them back to Your law.
Yet they acted proudly, And did not heed Your commandments, But sinned against Your judgments, ‘Which if a man does, he shall live by them.’ And they shrugged their shoulders, Stiffened their necks, And would not hear.
Nehemiah 9:29

“Therefore say to the house of Israel, ‘Thus says the Lord GOD: “Repent, turn away from your idols, and turn your faces away from all your abominations.
Ezekiel 14:6

Therefore I will judge you, O house of Israel, every one according to his ways,” says the Lord GOD. “Repent, and turn from all your transgressions, so that iniquity will not be your ruin. Cast away from you all the transgressions which you have committed, and get yourselves a new heart and a new spirit. For why should you die, O house of Israel?
Ezekiel 18:30 - 31

Again, when a wicked man turns away from the wickedness which he committed, and does what is lawful and right, he preserves himself alive. Because he considers and turns away from all the transgressions which he committed, he shall surely live; he shall not die.
Ezekiel 18:27 - 28

Read the Book of Jonah about how the city of Nineveh turned and repented from their wicked ways and GOD spared that city from the destruction that Jonah had preached. Was not the same requirement for repentance for the Israelite as it was for the people of Nineveh? GOD does not change (Malachi 3:6).

Even Balaam, a wicked lust and greed driven Prophet of GOD, knew of the requirement to repent only he was not sincere and pretended he did not understand GOD implying that GOD had been unclear in HIS communication. His insincerity was fully exposed (i.e. revealed) when later he conspired with Balak to lure (i.e. tempt and bait) the Israelite to disobey GOD and sinned:

And Balaam said to the Angel of the LORD, “I have sinned, for I did not know You stood in the way against me. Now therefore, if it displeases You, I will turn back.”
Numbers 22:34

How about JESUS CHRIST, the only begotten SON of GOD? What did the Gospel accounts record about JESUS CHRIST and the Gospel (good news) that HE announced? Did HE said that the Laws and Commandments of GOD were not longer necessary to be obeyed, kept and honored, was that what HE announced (Matthew 5:17)? Was that the good news?

At the end of HIS work, the work of doing the work of HIS FATHER, before HE was delivered to be killed did JESUS tell HIS Apostles and disciples that since HE “had fulfilled all things therefore” they no longer need to obey (i.e. to keep and perform) GOD's commandments anymore since those were nothing but a yoke of bondage (John 17:8, 14, 17 - 18)?’ Was that the good news?

Before HE ascended to sit on HIS FATHER'S right hand did HE teach HIS Apostles and disciples that they were from then on under grace ‘therefore there is no longer a need to observe anything anymore and there was no longer a need to keep HIS Commandments or HIS FATHER's Commandments since they had been nailed to HIS cross’ (Matthew 28:16 - 20)? Was that the good news? 

Did HE say that from then on ‘it is OK to worship idols as long as it is’ in HIS “image” or HIS mother's, “the perpetual virgin's image” or a cross to be the image of him crucified? Was this the good news?

Did HE instruct HIS disciples before HE ascended to HIS FATHER in Heaven, that ‘from then forth all Christians are to observed Sunday as a day of worship and rest since that was the day HE was resurrected’? Did HE at that time command them to observe Easter Sunday as the so called day of HIS resurrection rather than to commemorate the New Testament Covenant in HIS death made through the shedding of HIS BLOOD, The Covenant which HE instituted before HE died to pay the penalty of mankind's sins?

Did HE tell HIS Apostles that HE and the FATHER and the HOLY SPIRIT are ‘of a Trinity?’ Did HE command them to use the pagans’ celebration of their pagan’s gods birthday as a celebration of HIS birthday? Well did JESUS CHRIST teach and command all these?

If HE didn't then why are these the observations, celebrations and practices of nearly all those who profess Christianity today? Why is Christianity recognized today as Christmas and Easter Sunday and Good Friday? Why are we being taught that the Christian GOD is (or should it be, are) a Trinity?

Were all the records of the Gospel and New Testament accounts in the Scripture of Truth just a ruse, all just for drama and the LORD JESUS secretly revealed HIS real message to this “Vicar” of Christ, this Pope, this self appointed overlord of the Christian religion? I don't know what you think, but all of main stream “Christendom” believed so, otherwise why would they be advocating and following all these doctrines and celebrations that are not in the Christian Bible but invented (i.e. engineered) by men gathered together to design doctrines that specifically and explicitly outlawed both the Sabbath created and commanded by the LORD GOD and the Everlasting Covenant with GOD The FATHER mediated by LORD JESUS in HIS First Advent's role as The MESSENGER of The Covenant.

But I choose to believe the records of the Scripture of Truth (Daniel 10:21). How about you?

Here is what JESUS CHRIST announced:

Now after John was put in prison, Jesus came to Galilee, preaching the gospel of the kingdom of God, and saying, “The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand. Repent, and believe in the gospel.”
Mark 1:14 - 15

When HE sent out HIS twelve apostles, two by two to preach the Gospel they were command to preach that people should repent.

So they went out and preached that people should repent. And they cast out many demons, and anointed with oil many who were sick, and healed them.
Mark 6:12 - 13


After HIS death and resurrection before HE ascend to HIS FATHER, HE taught the Holy Christian Scriptures to HIS disciples:

And He opened their understanding, that they might comprehend the Scriptures. Then He said to them, “Thus it is written, and thus it was necessary for the Christ to suffer and to rise from the dead the third day, and that repentance and remission of sins should be preached in His name to all nations, beginning at Jerusalem. And you are witnesses of these things.
Luke 24:45 -48

And just before LORD JESUS ascended to Heaven HE specifically, explicitly, clearly, leaving no ambiguity and leaving no place absolutely for anyone to be able to doubt, commanded them to obey and observe all the things HE had taught and commanded them during HIS three and a half years ministry, from then forward until HIS Second Advent (i.e. the End of the Age) to restore the Kingdom:

Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.” Amen
Matthew 28:19 - 20

Many years after HE had ascended to Heaven, after all HIS Apostles, except the Apostle John, had died, JESUS sent HIS Angel (i.e. emissary messenger the Spirit personage, Gabriel) to the Apostle John with a message from HIS FATHER revealing the events that were soon to follow from that time on wards until the End of the Age (which is today the very last generation, the generation who will witness the Second Advent). In it was revealed of an event a few thousands from that time, an event called the Day of the LORD. Here are some of the records from the Book of Revelation.

Revelation 9:20 - 21
But the rest of mankind, who were not killed by these plagues, did not repent of the works of their hands, that they should not worship demons, and idols of gold, silver, brass, stone, and wood, which can neither see nor hear nor walk. And they did not repent of their murders or their sorceries or their sexual immorality or their thefts.

Revelation 16:9 - 11
And men were scorched with great heat, and they blasphemed the name of God who has power over these plagues; and they did not repent and give Him glory. Then the fifth angel poured out his bowl on the throne of the beast, and his kingdom became full of darkness; and they gnawed their tongues because of the pain. They blasphemed the God of heaven because of their pains and their sores, and did not repent of their deeds.

Here we have the revelation of an event thousands of years after the Apostolic times and still future to today, which the Scripture of Truth recorded in advance, speaking of the refusal by sinning men (include women) to repent of their deeds (yes of what they are doing) despite thunderous and punishing plagues from GOD.

John the Baptist taught of a need to repent, JESUS CHRIST throughout HIS three and a half years ministry consistently taught of a need to repent, to stop disobeying GOD's Commandments and to start obeying GOD, honoring, performing and keeping HIS commandments. Before HE ascended to Heaven HE opened the understanding of the Scriptures to HIS Apostles and disciples teaching that they should ‘preach repentance and the remission of sins’ starting from Jerusalem. Years after HE had ascended to Heaven HE sent HIS Angel with a prophetic message to the last surviving Apostle of the Twelve, the Apostle John, and in that message was the same requirement for repentance. All the Apostles of JESUS CHRIST and all the Prophets of the Old Testament, all taught the same thing.

Did John the Baptist, and JESUS CHRIST, and all of HIS appointed Apostles, and all the Old Testament Prophets, all of them preached a false gospel so that this special “Vicar of Christ” and all these special councils and synods of bishops could preach the true message of the Christian religion (i.e. faith and worship)?

JESUS CHRIST, HIMSELF before HE ascended to Heaven, in HIS instructions to HIS Apostles and disciples specifically taught them to preach repentance.


Some “rocket scientist” may ask, ‘Repent from what?’ And that is a fair question because that is how “rocket scientist” are. Deliberately clueless! Now when I use the term “rocket scientist” I am not specifically referring to those brilliant researchers and man of science but to all the puffed up personages full of themselves who think they know everything just because they know something. That is why I use the term in between double quotes. I could use the exact term pompous idiots but that would be making it too obvious and might offend their hyper inflated egos and hurt their sensitive feelings.

Repent means to be truly (as opposed to faking andor self deceivingly) remorseful for something that we have done and because of this remorse to completely cease from (i.e. repent from) doing it. In the case with GOD, it concerned some wrongs (include evils) that we have done. So what have we done that is wrong (and therefore evil)? Now the problem is nobody really believed they are in the wrong or are doing something wrong even if they know they are doing something wrong. That is the essence of the carnal nature or what I call the human psyche's lust for ego gorging. Try pointing out to a complete stranger or someone (which may include people you know and are familiar with including you own immediate family as well as just about anyone) you are not acquainted with, that they are doing something wrong and you are asking at the very minimum to start a quarrel, and maybe even get yourself beaten up or killed (Acts 7:51 - 54, 57; Proverbs 21:2).

The GOD of the Christian Bible said that all men (includes women) are sinners (Romans 3:23; Psalm 53:3; Ecclesiastes 7:20). What that means is we are all sinning against GOD and our fellow man (Matthew 22:37 - 40; Exodus 20:1 - 17; Genesis 9:6). So when GOD call us to repent, HE is calling us to stop sinning, to stop being disobedient, to stop breaking HIS Laws and Commandments. That includes stop doing any kind and manner of wrong (include evil) against our fellow man (Romans 13:10). But stopping to do all those things also means we must start doing something. We must start obeying HIM, starting keeping HIS Commandments and Charges and Instructions. And we must start respecting our fellow man in not mistreating them, stealing or robbing from them, cheating them, maligning them, dealing deceitfully against them and doing them any and all manner of wrong and harm.

Now if you can understand that, you surely must begin to realize how ridiculous is the doctrine that teaches us that there is nothing we need to do (not of works) to receive the grace of GOD but we only need to accept JESUS CHRIST as our personal savior. Because many theologians and religious experts from the Christmas religion are advocating just such a doctrine, ‘we do not need to keep or observe anything to be saved because it is by grace we are saved and not of works.’ According to these theologians and religious experts all anyone needs to do to be saved from eternal hell fire is just open up their mouth and utter a few magical words. It doesn't matter if they do not know who JESUS CHRIST is (John 16:3; 1 John 2:3 - 4) or who the CREATOR GOD is (John 8:19).

Now on the other hand there is this other doctrine from this same Christmas religion that advocate the doing meaningless chanting mantra penance andor performing rules based mantra sacraments to atone for when one does these wrongs or sins. If you are an intelligent and rational person you have got to be scratching your head and asking, ‘How does that solve anything?’ Now in this huge mother church of the Christmas religion there are over a billion disciples who believe they are the original Christian religion, true to the tradition of the Apostolic fathers, not one of them even considering this for a second. That is just how deceived the whole of mainstream Christianity is by this great Mystery Babylonian Harlots religion.

Is it a small wonder today we see a “Christian” world filled to the brim with all manner of perversion and wickedness?

All these wrongs and wickedness the Bible called sin. So according to the Christian Bible we are to repent from sinning which is of doing something through an action or speech that is wrong (as oppose to doing right).

If we are to repent from sin we need to know what sin is. There are many views on what sin is in the teachings of traditional “Christianity”. I will list here two of the most seriously flawed ones. Because these definitions are the vehicles through which Satan the Devil deceived the world into believing in an unreasonable and exacting GOD (Genesis 3:4; 4:13; Luke 19:21) even as his disciples go around and with their very same breath talking about love, grace and a merciful GOD.


Some Teachings On Sin By “Mainstream Christianity”


1. Sin is a condition mankind is born in or into and it is not something we do or can do anything about.
2. Sin is falling short of the perfection of GOD or missing the mark of the perfection of GOD.

Below are these two teachings expressed in online prints that are representative of the views held by mainstream “Christianity”.

1. Natural Condition Of Man.

Original sin is a condition, not something that people do: It's the normal spiritual and psychological condition of human beings, not their bad thoughts and actions. Even a newborn baby who hasn't done anything at all is damaged by original sin.

The above doctrine from the followers of the Christmas religion basically said that GOD created us inherently sinful. Through this it is implied that GOD is unreasonable and unjust because HE made us this way yet condemned us when we sinned. By implication this is saying that GOD's grace is nothing but purely for GOD to glorify HIMSELF as superior to us. That in essence is what this explicitly evil doctrine teaches so as to have the all knowing (i.e. absolutely intelligent) loving, merciful, righteous and just GOD to be portrayed in the minds of all mankind as a self glorifying evil, insidiously deceitful, vengefully sadistic, unreasonably exacting and incomprehensibly masochistic and illogically self contradicting. So you still think that mainstream “Christianity” is Christian?

The Scripture of Truth specifically state that GOD made man upright:

But I did find this: God created people to be virtuous, but they have each turned to follow their own downward path.
Ecclesiastes 7:29 (New Living Translation).

For the discussion series on whether mankind were created by GOD as inherently sinful and evil, or essentially upright please read the post, ‘What Is Right With Humankind Anyway’ n the blog ‘A Christian Pilgrimage’.


2. Missing The Mark.

This concept also encompasses the idea of failing to measure up to a standard. For example, most academic courses and tests are graded or judged according to a minimum standard. If we don’t meet that standard, we fail that test or course. A minimum level of performance is expected, and anything less than that standard is failure. By not meeting that standard, we “miss the mark” and don’t pass. We can miss the mark by either missing the goal at which we were aiming or by falling short of that goal. In either situation we fail to reach the mark set for us.

In this doctrine of the Christmas religion it is explicitly implied that GOD is measuring us against HIMSELF, an impossible standard for mortal and imperfect man to attain. It explicitly implied that GOD required from us what it is beyond our limited physical nature to attain to, thus painting a picture of an unreasonably demanding GOD. That GOD expects what is impossible for us to achieve (HE made us this way) yet condemned us when we fail to measure up to HIS impossible standard. This doctrine is a lot trickier than the first so please read the chapter on ‘Grace, Sin And The Commandments Of GOD’ to get a full understanding and for proof that this doctrine is not from the Scripture of Truth but a clever and evil deception, ‘twisting’ some Scriptures to claim that this is what the Scriptures taught.

I will just mention here that these are all part of the great deception of Satan the Devil. Lies that indirectly and implicitly portrayed GOD as harsh and unjust to impute on man what is not within man's power to correct. I will fully discuss this and also what sin is in greater detail in the chapter ‘Grace, Sin And The Commandments Of GOD

Anyone reading this still think mainstream “Christianity” is not Antichrist?

Here I will just discuss the basic concept of what sin is. For a more complete discussion on sin as defined and illustrated in the Scripture of Truth please read the chapter ‘Grace, Sin And The Commandments Of GOD’ where I will expound the deeper aspects especially the writings of the Apostle Paul of which the Chief Apostle Peter wrote:

and consider that the longsuffering of our Lord is salvation—as also our beloved brother Paul, according to the wisdom given to him, has written to you, as also in all his epistles, speaking in them of these things, in which are some things hard to understand, which untaught and unstable people twist to their own destruction, as they do also the rest of the Scriptures.
2 Peter 3:15 - 16

For a concise discussion on the connection of grace and the law (of GOD) please read the post, ‘The False Prophet Part 2 of 2’ where the concept of Sovereign Grace of GOD was also briefly discussed.

What The Bible Said Sin Is.

Whoever commits sin also commits lawlessness, and sin is lawlessness.
1 John 3:4

That means sin is about breaking or not obeying (not keeping) the law. Something we do (breaking) or fail to do (not obeying).

All unrighteousness is sin
1 John 5:17

That means that it is about what is right and what is wrong, what is good and what is evil. The New International Reader's Version translates it in a simpler English, 'Every wrong thing we do is sin'.

Therefore, to him who knows to do good and does not do it, to him it is sin.
James 4:17

Omission to do good is as bad as commission of wrongs. Being responsible and acting and speaking responsibly for good and against evil. Not being responsible therefore is also sin.

Basically then sin is doing something we know to be wrong or harmful or unlawful and also of acting or speaking irresponsibly. In other words it is all about doing and speaking evil, or behaving and conducting ourselves motivated by bad faith andor evil. One of the easiest of all things to do to determine whether something we say or do is sin, is this — if you don't like what someone else is doing or saying (especially when it affects you) but you do the same thing yourself (to others) then you know for sure that you are sinning. That will include when you fail to live up to your responsibility as you reasonably expect others to.

So sin essentially is how we wrongfully treat others and also ourselves. And is not just about commission (speeches and deeds) but omission too (knowing or willing negligence, yes that includes willful negligence). And this applies to all our acts and words to both GOD as well as man (mankind).

Honor to whom honor is due and respect to whom respect is due. That is what we expect from others and that is what is required of us. That is where breaking the commandments and charges and instructions of GOD is also a sin, as also is failing to honor GOD with rightful credit and gratitude.

The main thrust of sin is not about whether you can stop yourself or not, but whether you are willing to stop yourself or not. It is not about ability but willingness. Stopping these works and words of commissions and omissions. Here is where Satan the Devil's lies had the whole world of “Christendom” deceived by explicitly advancing that sin is something beyond our limited ability to control in ourselves because we are made that way.

Now repentance is required towards GOD (because HE created us and bestowed on us life and desired for us all goodness and well being but we rebelled and rejected HIM) and also because HE owns us. HE is our owner and master that is what GOD means, the ONE who have absolute right over us, because everything is created by HIM and belongs to HIM (Genesis 1:1; Psalm 89:11; 1 Corinthians 10:26, 28). When we wronged or harmed another person or even the earth we lived in, which GOD made, we wronged GOD because all these things are HIS. It is as you harm your neighbor or destroy his property, you have done wrong to your neighbor but you also have committed sin against GOD because your neighbor belongs to GOD who created him/her just as you also belong to GOD.

The repentance that is required is that we stop doing wrong (things that are not conducive to the welfare and especially the well being of all and sundry whether immediately, cumulatively or progressively to a timeframe of eternity) and committing sins against GOD, breaking HIS charges, laws and commandments, disobeying HIS voice and instructions; stopping our distrust towards our CREATOR, BENEFACTOR and GOD. That means we must start trusting (demonstrating complete faith) and start obeying GOD, keeping and performing all HIS commandments, laws, charges and instructions. That is the condition, the repentance needed to avail of HIS grace, which is HIS benevolent mercy to pardon (forgive) us for all these sins and wickedness which we in our lives have knowingly done. Then and only then can the penalty (which is the justly ordained sentence for breaking the laws of GOD) which HIS SON, JESUS CHRIST had paid by dying in our stead, be lifted from us. We are required to meet the condition (repentance towards GOD) before we can avail of the grace that is given by the application of the BLOOD that CHRIST shed, as HE died on the cross hung on a tree for us in the Forever Covenant with GOD. Everlasting judgment is all that is left for all those who reject this New Testament Covenant because they are still under the penalty that is required because of their sins. For the wages (penalty or ultimate payment) of sin is death’, forever death.

Grace is not unconditional just as the love of GOD is not unconditional, contrary to the evil lies perpetuated by the followers of the Christmas and other Antichrists religions, the disciples of Satan the Devil through the churches of Antichrists. For a full discussion on the grace of GOD read the chapter ‘Grace, Sin And The Commandments Of GOD’, and on the love of GOD read the chapter ‘GOD IS’.

The whole world has embraced these lies.

And the really sad fact is, today even in the very Church of GOD as also all the rest (those outside of the membership of the Church in the numerous congregational entities of so called churches of god) of the Elect, many to almost all have also embraced a number of these lies too, the elders and leaders feeding the Elect of GOD with blasphemous lies (Malachi 1:6 - 7, 10 - 12). Lies that blaspheme the Glorious Name, the Absolute Wisdom and the Perfect Righteousness of the ALMIGHTY CREATOR and GOD, lies to portray GOD as a self glorifying contradiction where the entire basis of righteousness, of good and evil, right and wrong is because HE said so; where to be immutable means to be regretting and changing HIS mind but only after learning how seriously flawed HIS creation was; where to be all knowing is to be not only not all knowing, but deliberately choosing not to know; where to be all powerful means GOD must wait patiently for these mega super faithful someone (i.e. men and may not include women) to somehow (i.e. GOD being clueless as to how or when) turned up at certain time so that HE can get these men to do some part crucial to the work without which HE would not be able to complete and fulfill HIS purpose, without which then HIS purpose will be in critical jeopardy of failure; to be all knowing means HE need to have a ‘plan B’ ready just in case HIS ‘plan A’ fail totally, which it unexpectedly (because GOD chose not to know that it will or if it had failed expectedly then what would that make GOD into for planning to fail) did (by some fluke of bad luck or bad planning or things going horribly wrong or whatever). All these by the way were the doctrines invented by the sole Messenger to the Church of GOD of the Philadelphia period so that he can proclaimed (i.e. self proclaimed) himself as THE fulfillment of the Elijah To Come and also promote himself to the rank of an Apostle (to show that he is among the highest ranking of the highest ranking). There is no other possible reason outside of ego lust when people seek so totally to self promote themselves that they would deliberately ignored and disregarded JESUS' teaching and commandment of Luke 14:7 – 11, so much for being faithfully obedient more likely their obedience is so that they can elevate themselves, to promote their personal self image.

Questions for readers but especially for all the proclaimed and acclaimed Superlatives as well as all the Elect in all the so called Churches of God today:
What do you think? Would a all powerful, all knowing GOD need to put in a place a ‘Plan B’ just in case HIS ‘Plan A’ failed totally but not only just in case it failed but that it inexplicably did?
What do you think? Would a all powerful, all knowing GOD purposefully choose not to know what we are going to do (i.e. will be doing moment by moment) as the only possible way for us to have freewill?
What do you think? Would an all powerful, all knowingall wise all intelligent GOD really not know ahead (because HE deliberately choose to refuse to know) that both Adam and Eve would directly disobey to take and eat from the Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil so that not only also did ‘Plan A’ failed but ‘Plan B’ also failed so there must then also be a ‘Plan C’ and probably many, many other further fall back plans since the first and second unexpectedly and inexplicable failed? Would all the letters of the English alphabets be able to have enough plans to cover for all of them to unexpectedly and inexplicably failing?
What do you think? Would the ‘Elijah Who Is To Come’, an Apostle of GOD no less, sent (or raised up) by GOD to restore all things and actually did restored all things (as claimed), be so ignorant as to not understand what blasphemy is at the most basic, and also not understand the simplest thing about freewill, intelligence and knowledge?
What do you think? Did the sole Messenger to the Philadelphia period of the Church of GOD who was both (as so claimed) an Apostle and The ‘Elijah Who Is To Come’, fully complete the commission of the Church, the commission ordained by LORD JESUS, which was to preach the Gospel message as a witness to the whole world and to make disciples of all those who believed and repented?  Did this Messenger as he so claimed fully completed the commission and work of the Church of GOD such that the Church of GOD since then no longer needs to preach the Gospel message anymore and are no longer to make new disciples of all those who believe and repent but instead are to just focus on getting the Church ready to receive LORD JESUS?
Well, irregardless of what you want to believe (both then and now) I hope you have both the sincerity and courage to recognized lies when they have been spelt out to you to your face instead of continuing to believe lies because you lusted uncontrollably to.

I didn't make this up, these (Revelation 3:17) are available to all, being all fully documented (published in hardcopy as well as on the internet) in the publications of all these so called (i.e. self proclaimed) supremely supreme, contritely contrite, nobly noble, faithful faithful, mega super agape loving of the Philadelphia loving, super zealous of the zealous, mega fervent of the fervent, mega super truth loving liars of ‘ever so noble Bereans’, ‘Philadelphia remnants’, ‘Sons of Zedok’ or whatever else mega glorious titles that are the Elect in all these so called churches of gods including in the one and only true Church of GOD.

But that is not all, all these too are clearly, plainly and explicitly recorded in the Christian Holy Scriptures testified to in prophecy in both the Old Testament and New Testament records, including in the recorded words of JESUS CHRIST during HIS three and a half year ministry as the MESSENGER and MEDIATOR of The Covenant.

And I am not publishing and asserting all these to put anyone down or to judge anyone but with the hope that they will wake up from their lust (especially ego supergorging lust) drunken stupor and repent before the day (i.e. the Tribulation) come upon them as a thief in the night. To repent from refusing to believe GOD by choosing to believing lies to obey (i.e. worship) some men who claimed themselves to be the faithful remnants best of the best of the over a hundred of the congregations of so called Churches of God despite this directly contradicting the explicit and clear testimonies of the Scripture of Truth.

And of course very completely naturally, nearly all of the proclaimed and acclaimed Superlatives of the human social order whether those of mega supremely ingeniously brilliantly intelligent science, technology, academia, industry, politics, philosophy or religions (all religions including the only true Christianity through the Everlasting Covenant) in this mega supreme age of incredible knowledge “enlightenment”, would all balk at, scoff at and mock these assertions: that a Messenger or angel (Revelation 3:7) that GOD had appointed to lead HIS Church (the Church of GOD in the Philadelphia era) and who had restored 18 truths to the Church that had been lost, plus also for the very first time since the Apostolic days, had the true Gospel preached to world, would invent such lies that blaspheme GOD's Holy Name and Perfect Righteousness; and that the Elect, the people of GOD by the New Everlasting Covenant, would so totally and completely turned to lust so uncontrollably to believe lies.

But of course all the proclaimed and acclaimed Superlatives of the social order of mankind are not the only ones to balk, scoff and mock this, almost everyone who thinks, feels andor hold themselves to be knowledgeably enlightened or even just to know something, would in all probably too be balking, scoffing, ridiculing and mocking the assertion that the Apostles, Messengers, Prophets and leaders of GOD's people would invent doctrines and advance teachings that blaspheme GOD.

The simple fact and truth of a small group (numbering very less than a million) of people claiming themselves as the true Christians who all still keep (with their mouths but not their hearts, meaning pay lip service to) and honor the full unaltered Ten Commandments and the exact commemoration of the Everlasting New Covenant (whether they claimed themselves as the Church of God or not) but (yet) with their open naked brazen shame of ego gorging lust (Revelation 3:17) to claimed themselves as of being the really truth loving, fervently zealous, and the mega super faithful and righteous, available published for the perusal (Revelation 3:18) of the whole world of mankind is the definitive indisputable evidence and proof of both the truth of the Christian Holy Scriptures and the testimonies of this work. This is because these Scriptures from nearly two thousand ago and also much earlier (during the Old Testament period in the major prophesies of the ‘major’ Prophets such as Jeremiah, Ezekiel, Malachi and also many other ‘minor’ Prophets) had explicitly, precisely and exactly prophesied of this. The precise fulfillment of these groups of people (in the over a hundred so called Churches of God) who are the true disciples of LORD JESUS, the small flock of true Christians behaving exactly this way, then a whole world of nearly two billions and a half fraudulent “Christians”, the ancient Babylonian Mystery religion in the guise of Christianity, all practicing major doctrines and celebrations that are not only not recorded in the Christian Holy Scriptures but are directly in contradiction to the consistency of these Scriptures as well requiring their followers and discipleship to reject the things these Scriptures, the Scripture of Truth, clearly, plainly and explicitly commanded and to persecute, torture and murder (whenever they have the power impunity) all those who would still keep them. This is of course only if you think that the Christian Holy Scriptures can be believed.

And if you think, believe, andor hold yourself to be someone sincerely seeking to learn the truth, then don't just believe me or disbelieve me (because to do one or the other without thoroughly sincerely meticulously checking things out will make you into nothing but just an explicit brazen liar). First sincerely, diligently and thoroughly read and study through the Christian Holy Scriptures a few (two or more) times cover to cover. After that if you want to, read through all this work and checking what is written against what you understand from reading and studying through the Christian Bible. But if that is too much for you. then, if you want to and choose to, you can just read the pending post ‘Sinners Or Saints — Which’ of the blog ‘The End Of The World’ for a detail discussion of Romans 3:9 – 18 (also in Psalm 14:2 – 3; Psalm 53:2 – 3; Ecclesiastes 7:20) and Luke 18:13 – 14 (you can read the complete confession in Psalm 51).

The consistent records of the Christian Holy Scriptures from the very first book (Genesis) to the very last book (Revelation) had clearly shown that all humankind are sinners, no exception. Even more than a full third of the Spirit Angel personages were recorded to have been sinning (‘secretly’ scheming in, and for rebellion), some having already long ago (from the perspective of earth time) fully rebelled against GOD while others are still waiting their time (to breakout in open rebellion).

Only GOD do not and cannot sin because HE will not, and not just because HE do not need to. That has been the reason (the primary reason) GOD made covenants with HIS creatures (i.e. mankind) to bind HIMSELF (because no one else can) to a requirement to perform, as also the reason HE swore by oath (Genesis 22:16) to Abraham.

The difference between the sinners and those who are righteous are in the choices they make, the decisions that are continually being made in the process of life. And if we would not deliberately pretend to be stupid, we would (or should anyway) know that, that decision is not a one off and never again required to be made decision.
