This second installment in the series concerning one of Satan’s holidays will introduce readers to the fact that telling the truth numerous times, as I have done repeatedly over the years, does not necessarily have a positive effect upon religionists. Nevertheless, just as God instructed the Prophet Jeremiah after he complained that no one listened to him, I tell them anyway. The widely-revered celebration of Cupid’s exploits serves to remind us that Satan is still alive and well on planet earth. Unfortunately, Valentine’s Day is only one of many tricks the devil uses to legitimize Counterfeit Christianity. Which leads us to another recent happening that was observed with the highest of reverence by billions of people all over the world. Though those billions of people own and make reference to the Holy Bible, extremely few are familiar enough with it to realize that the much-publicized loss of the world’s most recognized “Christian” leader proves just how deeply into heathenism the Institutional Church has fallen. But this deadly error is not unusual.
Since the founding of “THE (one and only) faith once delivered to the saints,” numerous “ministers of righteousness” have strapped on their “sheep’s clothing,” preached the devil’s “perverted gospel” and, having “deceived many,” have then “scattered the flock” by sending them into “the church of your choice”–one of Satan’s numerous cults where they unwittingly languish in the world of Babylonian heathenism. Being ignorant of God’s Word and intending to remain in that spiritual state, these hapless souls will go to their deaths never realizing that they have been deceived by the master deceiver. Throughout their church lives they have been “ever learning but never coming to the knowledge of THE (one and only) Truth.” Why? Because, like the millions of “saved, sanctified and born again” followers of the recently deceased “man of God,” they have been led astray by their local “wolves in sheep’s clothing.” God has commissioned His spokesmen to “expose them.” I am doing my best to fulfill that commission.
I recently wrote a half-page article in the local newspaper in which I compared what is preached as God’s truth to His actual Truth as stated in the Holy Scriptures. In the article I revealed to several thousand readers that they were being led astray by their false prophets. Not surprisingly, not one “Christian” has bothered to thank me for revealing God’s life-producing Truths while exposing their church’s death-producing errors. Having been in the Truth-telling business for a number of years, I did not expect a pat on the head. However, I did expect a flurry of hate calls, letters, etc. which sometimes follow the publication of one of my articles. None were forthcoming. My conclusion is that people either 1) saw my name and refused to read the article, 2) read it and did not believe it or, 3) like one local pastor, read it, professed to believe it, then refused to obey the Lord’s commands found in it. Regardless of the reaction, no one rejects God’s Word then lives eternally in His presence. My hope is that at some point those who rebel against the Words of Life will come to their spiritual senses, reverse course, enter the Lord’s strait gate and walk His narrow way leading to the Kingdom of God.
