Introduction: This article publican is for directing (“helping”) apostate churches and the lost (lost meaning: the unsaved individual) understand how to obtain “Real Scriptural Salvation.”
As you will notice, the “Table Chart” listed below got drafted to help educate those who might “NOT” otherwise understand (acknowledge) the reality of this topical subject.
Romans 3:4: “God forbid: yea, let God be true, but every man a liar; as it is written, That thou mightest be justified in thy sayings, and mightest overcome when thou art judged.”
Public Statement:All scriptural verses used in this article shall use the King James Version (KJV) edition.
AUTHENTIC BIBLICAL SALVATION – PART ONE
If apostate churches worldwide can learn only one thing correctly regarding the holy scriptural teachings of the Holy Bible, the influence of such a topic should be the doctrine of “Salvation.” Sadly church denominations globally appear to not even get this one doctrinal teaching correct. This doctrine is so critical that this affects the direct souls of the billions upon billions of lost individuals worldwide. This pandemic has spread through the church halls of several congregational Christian institutions, regardless of these “so-called” institutionalized denominations, such as Southern Baptists, Fundamental (Independent) Baptists, Methodists, and all charismatic institutions, like the Pentecostals, etc.
Regardless of what Institution a “so-called” believer might belong to, this doctrine regarding the understanding of “How one gets “SAVED” is critical to understanding an individual’s soul and where/what happens eternally upon one’s physical death.
Please understand, dear reader, that “ALL SCRIPTURES” is essential to understand correctly. However, the doctrine of “Salvation” is the most important for the individuals who are “lost.” This subject is, therefore, not intended to downplay the importance of all other doctrinal teachings (subjects) but to help “lost souls” get saved by accepting the real “Christ.”
Real Christ? Yes, dear reader. Many denominations have built upon their church pillars a falsehood of Christianity that teaches salvation by grace without the power of regeneration. Some so-called and yes little (c) representing the word “(false) christians even deny the Holy Trinity or downplay their jesus by creating a knockoff version from the Real “Christ Jesus.” As you can see, dear reader, this little j-e-s-u-s is not the authentic real Jesus Christ. These people have instead created a false christ by misinterpreting (twisting & sometimes downright altering) scriptures to create the elusion of their SO-CALLED j-e-s-u-s c-h-r-i-s-t. The purpose behind this alteration is to justify their occultic doctrine that feeds their worldly flesh that never got regenerated by the supernatural workings of the Holy Spirit by being “BORN AGAIN.” Instead these people think they are “born again” but reality indicates they are not “BORN AGAIN.”
Jehovah’s Witnesses (JW) are only just one primary example from just one of Satan’s replicated false christ hood institutions that preach Jesus Christ is the Savior of the world. However, their “so-called” translation of “gods word” only teaches this jesus was a mere creation.
This created jesus and not Creator Jesus is thus only God’s begotten son and thereby “NOT” the “Son,” which blasphemously denies the Old Testament teaching and New Testament confirmation of the historical, scriptural doctrine of the Trinity.
One basic elementary argument I have used against JW’s in the past debunking such an outlandish statement is why did the Jews kill Jesus Christ? Before the Jehovah’s Witnesses Institution got founded in 1881 in Pittsburgh, PA, Jesus Christ was already killed and resurrected about two thousand (2,000) years ago. However, the JW’s outlandishly blasphemously deny God, just like several ancient Jewish Pharisees did. This false doctrine helped usher in the prophesied Christ’s Crucifixion & yes Resurrection. You, see, dear reader, their christ, their jesus is a falsehood antichrist religion and “NOT” the “ACTUAL REAL” Jesus Christ.
“Therefore the Jews sought the more to kill him, because he not only had broken the sabbath, but said also that God was his Father, making himself equal with God.” John 5:18.
“For there are three that bear record in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost: and these three are one.”1 John 5:7.
“And there are three that bear witness in earth, the Spirit, and the water, and the blood: and these three agree in one.” 1 John 5:8.
HOWEVER, for the Institution of the JW’s to continue spreading their false gospel, their leaders are compelled to twist & “ALTER” verses like 1 John 5:7-8.
“For there are three witness bearers:” (vs. 7) “the spirit and the water and the blood; and the three are in agreement.” 1 John 5:7-8 – New World Translation (Anti-Christ Perversion).
The antichrist version of their JW’s unholy perversion of scriptures, The New World Translation, has altered/twisted several of the doctrinal verses of the doctrinal teaching of the “Trinity” to create thereby a NEW jesus christ. Just the two verses of 1 John Chapter 5, verses 7 & 8 show precise alteration and deletion to continue their falsehood idolized little (j) jesus.
Remember, “the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost:” 1 John 5:7 was “deleted,” and the first scriptural vs. in chapter 5 of 1st John verse 7 PROCLAIMS, “and these three are one.”
The New World Translation not only deletes (takes away) bible verses, they even ADD to several others throughout the Holy Scriptures. Thereby the jesus christ, which they proclaim NO longer is the Jesus Christ of the Holy Scriptures.
The very first book of the Torah, Genesis proclaims with evident truth that the organized Godhead operates under a “Trinity Doctrine.”
“And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.” Genesis 1:26.
The words “our” clearly illustrates plural wording. Thus, In the Beginning of the Book of Genesis, God proclaims His Trinity. The Pharisees did not understand this doctrine, so
they asked the Roman government to crucify our Messiah. The JW’s are actually, in all reality doing the same thing by teaching the same false doctrine 2,000 + years ago as the unconverted fallacious Pharisees taught. They scream for the little (j) to deliver them, but they crucify the real (J), who came into the world to save them.
“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.”John 3:16.
The Jews desired a Messiah AND when the Messiah came into the world, they “DID NOT” understand Him. They believed this Messiah would be a great political and military leader but “NOT THE DIVINE.”
We can also understand why the Jewish people are still looking for their hopeful Messiah to come, who will be the Antichrist during Jacob’s Trouble (Commonly Known: As The Great Tribulation).
“Alas! for that day is great, so that none is like it: it is even the time of Jacob’s trouble, but he shall be saved out of it.” Jeremiah 30:7.
If a person looks up a Hebrew-Greek-English Interlinear Bible, the word “OUR” in the Book of Genesis Chapter 1, verse 26, the byname meaning for “our” is indeed submitted as unconditional evidence of absolute proof.
The problem with the JW’s version of jesus is they make this jesus a “creation” and thereby deny the Trinity Godhead just like the Jewish people did during the time of Jesus Christ’s earthly ministry.
Remember This: Why did the Pharisees want “JESUS CHRIST” killed? Christ’s trial depicted in Luke Chapter 23 clearly illustrates that the Jewish Pharisees wanted
Him (Jesus Christ) killed because He, Jesus, proclaimed Himself equal to God. The comparable statute is a legal declaration. No “CREATION” can “EVER” be “EQUAL” with God. A “Creator can NOT be a creation.”
“Hath not the potter power over the clay, of the same lump to make one vessel unto honour, and another unto dishonour?” Romans 9:21.
Therefore, when Jesus Christ PROCLAIMED His equal status with God the Father, Jesus Christ legally proclaimed under constituted proclamation to be God because he proclaimed the same EQUAL SOVEREIGNTY AS GOD.
“But to us there is but one God, the Father, of whom are all things, and we in him; and one Lord Jesus Christ, by whom are all things, and we by him.”1 Corinthians 8:6.
Another primary example of an unbiblical salvation message from an occultic church institution is the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. Their outlandish doctrine teaches that the Messiah is the spirit brother of Lucifer. This teaching contradicts the Holy Scriptures regarding the Godhead Trinity that even on an essential elementary examination of God’s Word, a logical and rational individual should be able to conclude that this thesis is blasphemous.
“But as he which hath called you is holy, so be ye holy in all manner of conversation; Because it is written, Be ye holy; for I am holy.”1 Peter 1:15-16.
“There is none holy as the LORD: for there is none beside thee: neither is there any rock like our God.”1 Samuel 2:2.
“And one cried unto another, and said, Holy, holy, holy, is the LORD of hosts: the whole earth is full of his glory.” Isaiah 6:3.
If we are to understand the scriptural doctrine of the “TRINITY,” we must know that the Godhead is “Holy,” and thereby, the Trinity is the “Creator.” As mentioned in God’s scriptural book, 1 John Chapter Five verse 7 states that the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost are “ONE ENTITY.”
Thereby Jesus Christ, yes, big (J), not a little (j), is the Creator and not a creation. Satan
“OR” Lucifer was a fallen angel. Angels were “CREATED”; they were not the “CREATOR.” “How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! howart thou cut down to the ground, which didst weaken the nations!” Isaiah 14:12.
“And the angels which kept not their first estate, but left their own habitation, he hath reserved in everlasting chains under darkness unto the judgment of the great day.”Jude 1:6.
A logical & rational conclusion should indicate that “ALL” angels (fallen ones, known as demons or devils) and angels who haven’t sully (fallen) are “CREATED BEINGS.” So how could Lucifer (being a creation) be a brother to Jesus Christ (who is part of the Godhead Trinity)?
God is Holy and thereby can “NOT” get corrupted. Is the devil a corrupted created being? The answer is a guaranteed absolute “YES.”
“And changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things.” Romans 1:23.
Ezekiel Chapter 28 Proclaims –“The word of the LORD came again unto me, saying, Son of man, say unto the prince of Tyrus, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Because thine heart is lifted up, and thou hast said, I am a God, I sit in the seat of God, in the midst of the seas; yet thou art a man, and not God, though thou set thine heart as the heart of God: Behold, thou art wiser than Daniel; there is no secret that they can hide from thee: With thy wisdom and with thine understanding thou hast gotten thee riches, and hast gotten gold and silver into thy treasures: By thy great wisdom and by thy traffick hast thou increased thy riches, and thine heart is lifted up because of thy riches: Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD; Because thou hast set thine heart as the heart of God; Behold, therefore I will bring strangers upon thee, the terrible of the nations: and they shall draw their swords against the beauty of thy wisdom, and they shall defile thy brightness. They shall bring thee down to the pit, and thou shalt die the deaths of them that are slain in the midst of the seas. Wilt thou yet say before him that slayeth thee, I am God? but thou shalt be a man, and no God, in the hand of him that slayeth thee. Thou shalt die the deaths of the uncircumcised by the hand of strangers: for I have spoken it, saith the Lord GOD. Moreover the word of the LORD came unto me, saying, Son of man, take up a lamentation upon the king of Tyrus, and say unto him, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Thou sealest up the sum, full of wisdom, and perfect in beauty. Thou hast been in Eden the garden of God; every precious stone was thy covering, the sardius, topaz, and the diamond, the beryl, the onyx, and the jasper, the sapphire, the emerald, and the carbuncle, and gold: the workmanship of thy tabrets and of thy pipes was prepared in thee in the day that thou wast created. Thou art the anointed cherub that covereth; and I have set thee so: thou wast upon the holy mountain of God; thou hast walked up and down in the midst of the stones of fire. Thou wast perfect in thy ways from the day that thou wast created, till iniquity was found in thee. By the multitude of thy merchandise they have filled the midst of thee with violence, and thou hast sinned: therefore I will cast thee as profane out of the mountain of God: and I will destroy thee, O covering cherub, from the midst of the stones of fire. Thine heart was lifted up because of thy beauty, thou hast corrupted thy wisdom by reason of thy brightness: I will cast thee to the ground, I will lay thee before kings, that they may behold thee. Thou hast defiled thy sanctuaries by the multitude of thine iniquities, by the iniquity of thy traffick; therefore will I bring forth a fire from the midst of thee, it shall devour thee, and I will bring thee to ashes upon the earth in the sight of all them that behold thee. All they that know thee among the people shall be astonished at thee: thou shalt be a terror, and never shalt thou be any more. Again the word of the LORD came unto me, saying, Son of man, set thy face against Zidon, and prophesy against it, And say, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I am against thee, O Zidon; and I will be glorified in the midst of thee: and they shall know that I am the LORD, when I shall have executed judgments in her, and shall be sanctified in her. For I will send into her pestilence, and blood into her streets; and the wounded shall be judged in the midst of her by the sword upon her on every side; and they shall know that I am the LORD. And there shall be no more a pricking brier unto the house of Israel, nor any grieving thorn of all that are round about them, that despised them; and they shall know that I am the Lord GOD. Thus saith the Lord GOD; When I shall have gathered the house of Israel from the people among whom they are scattered, and shall be sanctified in them in the sight of the heathen, then shall they dwell in their land that I have given to my servant Jacob. And they shall dwell safely therein, and shall build houses, and plant vineyards; yea, they shall dwell with confidence, when I have executed judgments upon all those that despise them round about them; and they shall know that I am the LORD their God.”
These false church organizations like the JW’s and Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints have twisted/altered God’s Holy Word by changing the glory of the “uncorruptible God”(Romans 1:23) by creating a false little j – jesus. These manufactured little (j) ‘s lead such confused individuals straight into “HELL.”
Dear READER, you might be asking (questioning ???) about how an individual receives biblical salvation. Trust me and continue reading; you’ll understand by God’s Grace if you sincerely desire His Salvation.
Another example is Roman Catholicism. The Roman Catholic Church, which proclaims to believe in the Godhead Trinity, replaces God’s Divine Trinity by holding to various blasphemous unscriptural doctrines. To illustrate, just a few examples of this antichrist anti-trinity religious institution quickly debunked all one must do is examine the Holy Scriptures.
NUMBER ONE:Praying to Mary – the earthly mother of Jesus Christ.
“And go not after other gods to serve them, and to worship them, and provoke me not to anger with the works of your hands; and I will do you no hurt.”Jeremiah 25:6.“For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus;”1 Timothy 2:5.
“And when they were come into the house, they saw the young child with Mary his mother, and fell down, and worshipped him: and when they had opened their treasures, they presented unto him gifts; gold, and frankincense, and myrrh.”Matthew 2:11.
Catholicism teaches faithful Catholics to worship the mother of Jesus. They proclaim Mary intercedes upon His (Jesus – her son’s) behalf. That is why they teach she is the “queen of heaven.” The problem with this theological doctrine is this false little (j) antichrist church, and its members obtain blindness from scriptural reality. As indicated in Jeremiah 25:6, we are educated by scriptures to “NOT” to go after other
gods and worship them. 1 Timothy 2:5 informs us that our mediator between God and man is Christ Jesus. Even the wise men traveling to see Jesus Christ’s birth in Matthew 2:11 shows these men “ONLY” falling downward and worshipping Him (Jesus) and “NOT” Christ’s earthly mother, the virgin mother.
1. Queen of Heaven:Jeremiah Chapter 44:19 Proclaims –“And when we burned incense to the queen of heaven, and poured out drink offerings unto her, did we make her cakes to worship her, and pour out drink offerings unto her, without our men?”
2. Queen of Heaven: Suppose anyone has ever studied the Catholic Church doctrine merged during its formation into their so-called Christian theology with ancient paeanistic teaching of former religions. In that case, one will discover that history proves this reality. The queen of heaven is rooted in the unscriptural doctrine of paganism.
Is it, therefore, not blasphemous for Catholics to proclaim their famous prayer…”Hail Mary, full of grace, the Lord is with thee. Blessed art thou among women, and blessed is the fruit of thy womb, Jesus. Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners, now and at the hour of our death. Amen.”
NUMBER TWO:Only One Heavenly Father
“And call no man your father upon the earth: for one is your Father, which is in heaven.” Matthew 23:9.
Catholics get taught to call their local priests and so forth their fathers. The Holy Bible proudly proclaims we only have one heavenly Father, and we get commanded to “call NO man” your Father upon the earth. Why does the Catholic Institution tell us to honor their false fathers? The answer is utmost simplistic because it is within the Catholic Institution to diminish the Holy Trinity of the Godhead by replacing it with their satanic antichrist scriptural teachings, thus creating an altered “satanic trinity.”
That is why the Catholic Order proclaims the Pope is infallible and can pardon “SINS” when only the kosher (real/legitimate) big (J) Jesus Christ is given this authority.
“But that ye may know that the Son of man hath power on earth to forgive sins, (then saith he to the sick of the palsy,) Arise, take up thy bed, and go unto thine house.”Matthew 9:6.
We must also note that in “ORDER” to gain eternal salvation based on the theological beliefs in Catholicism, a person must “NOT” only have faith in God and Jesus; you are
also required to have confidence that the Church purifies a person’s sins. Members must be faithfully committed to the holy sacraments so they can continue in their regeneration process to cleanse an individual sinful statehood.
Just this doctrinal belief of the Church’s ability to receive the eternal power to forgive sins is so blasphemous towards the biblical “TRINITY” of the Godhead of our Creator
that it, in reality, creates an entirely different trinity. This trinity replacement replaces God by putting the statehood of the Church on God’s majestic throne, not to mention a man’s work leads them towards salvation by replacing God’s merciful grace.
Pope Francis Grants Permission For Priests The Power To Forgive Abortion
“Lest any obstacle arise between the request for reconciliation and God’s forgiveness, I henceforth grant to all priests, in virtue of their ministry, the faculty to absolve those who have committed the sin of procured abortion…. I wish to restate as firmly as I can that abortion is a grave sin, since it puts an end to an innocent life.”
“In the same way, however, I can and must state that there is no sin that God’s mercy cannot reach and wipe away when it finds a repentant heart seeking to be reconciled with the Father. May every priest, therefore, be a guide, support, and comfort to penitents on this journey of special reconciliation,” the Pope said.”
As you can see from just the quote mentioned above from Pope Francis, he instructs his so-called god given ability the power to priests to forgive the sin of abortion. Before this legal church decree only granted bishops this ability. However, we can rationally conclude that this theological belief is “NOT” scriptural. This theological doctrine creates a work-based system and replaces our mediator Jesus Christ to forgive our sins.
“But we are all as an unclean thing, and all our righteousnesses are as filthy rags; and we all do fade as a leaf; and our iniquities, like the wind, have taken us away.”Isaiah 64:6.
“Not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to his mercy he saved us, by the washing of regeneration, and renewing of the Holy Ghost;”Titus 3:5.
“For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast.”Ephesians 2:8-9.
“For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus;”1 Timothy 2:5.
Although more examples could get easily written to expose the JW’s, Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, Catholicism, and every other “so-called” occultic self-proclaiming bible institution, this subject of exposure would “NEVER” end. These religions are grounded in fallacies; thereby, how can one trust their doctrine of salvation when one can easily debunk their modern-day theological Pharisees?
So what? I am not a JW or a follower of the Latter-Day Saints, or even Catholic, you as a reader might proclaim. Maybe you are a pentecostal, a Methodist, Lutheran, and yes even a Baptist; even so, this indirectly should mean nothing towards one’s salvation.
As you will now see written below, this earth has a false god that represents all other falsehood gods from all other forms of religious beliefs (so-called “christian” religions and non-christian religions. This includes but is not limited to the following religious systems of monotheistic and polytheistic faiths.
How & Why? Well, because the devil gets depicted in the Holy Scriptures taking Jesus Christ Himself up an exceeding high mountain and offering Him all the kingdoms of the world if He (Jesus) would worship him (Lucifer).
“Again, the devil taketh him up into an exceeding high mountain, and sheweth him all the kingdoms of the world, and the glory of them; And saith unto him, All these things will I give thee, if thou wilt fall down and worship me. Then saith Jesus unto him, Get thee hence, Satan: for it is written, Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and him only shalt thou serve. Then the devil leaveth him, and, behold, angels came and ministered unto him.”Matthew 4:8-11.
Let us also not forget to mention that this false little god has been given a throne. The Holy Scriptures informs us of this scriptural teaching. As you will see below, Lucifer is granted with having a governing sovereign throne somewhere in the north.
“I know thy works, and where thou dwellest, even where Satan’s seat is: and thou holdest fast my name, and hast not denied my faith, even in those days wherein Antipas was my faithful martyr, who was slain among you, where Satan dwelleth.”Revelation 2:13.
Isaiah Chapter 14:12 Proclaims –“How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! how art thou cut down to the ground, which didst weaken the nations! For thou hast said in thine heart, I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God: I will sit also upon the mount of the congregation, in the sides of the north:
“Therefore rejoice, ye heavens, and ye that dwell in them. Woe to the inhabiters of the earth and of the sea! for the devil is come down unto you, having great wrath, because he knoweth that he hath but a short time.”Revelation 12:12.
What most big (C) indicating “REAL” Christians do not realize is that we are at “WAR.” Matthew Chapter 4, verses 8 through 11, teaches us that Lucifer has received authorization from the “CREATOR” to control and manipulate this world. The Book of Revelation Chapter 2, verse 13 even indicates this false little (g) illustrating the world’s false “god” even has a throne on this earth somewhere located in the north and Isaiah Chapter 14:12-13 reiterated this factual scriptural conclusion.
The “GOOD NEWS” is we are informed by GOD’S WORD that this false little (g) god, Lucifer, depicted in Revelation Chapter 12 verse 12, only gets a short time for his rule to continue on this earth.
Most Christians do not understand that when the devil fell from grace and got cast down to earth, a “NEW WAR” on earth began when Adam and Eve fell from grace in the garden of Eden.
“How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! how art thou cut down to the ground, which didst weaken the nations! For thou hast said in thine heart, I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God: I will sit also upon the mount of the congregation, in the sides of the north: I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will be like the most High. Yet thou shalt be brought down to hell, to the sides of the pit.” Isaiah 14:14.
1. Editor’s Notation: We read in Isaiah 14:14that Lucifer got cast out of heaven.
“How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! how art thou cut down to the ground,…”
However, during this battle between Lucifer and God, we are also educated in the Holy Scriptures that the Devil can still “SOMEHOW” currently enter heaven.
2. Editor’s Notation: “Somehow – Portal???” We know that during Babylon, they built a tower seeking the desire to enter the kingdom of Heaven. This is serious business folks. Dear readers, in all reality, this is an example of the sincere depravity of man’s sinful genetic conditioning to desire such spiritually blasphemous & technological advancements to desire to enter God’s Holy Kingdom in their wicked (sinful) conditioning.
Revelation Chapter 12:7-10 Proclaims – “And there was war in heaven: Michael and his angels fought against the dragon; and the dragon fought and his angels, And prevailed not; neither was their place found any more in heaven. And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him. And I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, Now is come salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of his Christ: for the accuser of our brethren is cast down, which accused them before our God day and night.”
With careful examination of God’s Scriptures, we understand that during the time of Jacob’s Trouble (The Great Tribulation – Note: Jeremiah 30:7 – “Alas! for that day is great, so that none is like it: it is even the time of Jacob’s trouble; but he shall be saved out of it.”), the Devil will “NOT” be able to enter heaven. In other words, the gate will be locked for entrance. What we can take from understanding the scriptures is that in this war which has been battled with man since the foundation of sin entering the world is that God will prevail. Genesis Chapter 28, illustrated below, shows Jacob during his dream (prophetic) vision that appears “somewhere” there seems to be a “LADDER” that has access (cross-dimension ??? “Portal ???”) from earth and heaven. Commonly known as the Great Tribulation (After the Pre-Tribulation Rapture) occurs, the “dragon,” a name given to Lucifer, is finally cast out of heaven during the seven-year tribulation period of God’s global judgment of humanity and the restoration of God’s chosen people/nation the Jews & State of Israel. “For thou art an holy people unto the LORD thy God: the LORD thy God hath chosen thee to be a special people unto himself, above all people that are upon the face of the earth.” Deuteronomy 7:6.
& … Extra Scriptural –Jewish Ref. 1 Kings 3:8 | 1 Kings 8:53 | Psalm 105:43 | Isaiah 43:4 | Isaiah 65:9 | Amos 3:2
Let us now continue moving forward, explaining Jacob’s Ladder. As already mentioned above, this article would expound with more scriptural evidence stated below regarding Genesis Chapter 28. So let’s examine scriptural evidence.
Jacob’s Dream – Genesis Chapter 28:12-14 Proclaims –“And he dreamed, and behold a ladder set up on the earth, and the top of it reached to heaven: and behold the angels of God ascending and descending on it. And, behold, the LORD stood above it, and said, I am the LORD God of Abraham thy father, and the God of Isaac: the land whereon thou liest, to thee will I give it, and to thy seed; And thy seed shall be as the dust of the earth, and thou shalt spread abroad to the west, and to the east, and to the north, and to the south: and in thee and in thy seed shall all the families of the earth be blessed.”
So, dear reader, you might still ask how I get saved. Please continue reading, and I assure you if your repented heart sincerely seeks the Lord, you will see the truth.
During this period when the devil fell from grace, he has been secretly working behind the scenes to try to stop God however he possibly can.
“For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.”Ephesians 6:12.
Ephesians 6:12 clearly illustrates that this false God, Lucifer himself, since the removal of Adam and Eve from the garden of Eden, has been working with rulers of the darkness of this world with governing principalities. Thus the devil helps provide spiritual wickedness in high places for this governing system to rule to continue.
Also Take Notice:“And the houses of Jerusalem, and the houses of the kings of Judah, shall be defiled as the place of Tophet, because of all the houses upon whose roofs they have burned incense unto all the host of heaven, and have poured out drink offerings unto other gods.” Jeremiah 29:13.
UNDERSTANDING THE LAWS OF NATURE
FROM A BIBLICAL VIEWPOINT
“Now the serpent was more subtil than any beast of the field which the Lord God had made. And he said unto the woman, Yea, hath God said, Ye shall not eat of every tree of the garden? And the woman said unto the serpent, We may eat of the fruit of the trees of the garden: But of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden, God hath said, Ye shall not eat of it, neither shall ye touch it, lest ye die. And the serpent said unto the woman, Ye shall not surely die: For God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil. And when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was pleasant to the eyes, and a tree to be desired to make one wise, she took of the fruit thereof, and did eat, and gave also unto her husband with her; and he did eat. And the eyes of them both were opened, and they knew that they were naked; and they sewed fig leaves together, and made themselves aprons.”Genesis 3:1-7.
The serpent depiction was subtil, – Dictionary Examination Illustrated Below
AMERICAN DICTIONARY of the ENGLISH LANGUAGE – 1828
SUB’TIL, adjective [Latin subtilis. This Word is often written subtle, but less properly.] 1. Thin; not dense or gross; as subtil air; subtil vapor; a subtilmedium.
2. Nice; fine; delicate.
I do distinguish plain
Each subtil line of her immortal face.
3. Acute; piercing; as subtil pain.
4. Sly; artful; cunning; crafty; insinuating; as a subtil person; a subtiladversary.
5. Planned by art; deceitful; as a subtil scheme.
6. Deceitful; treacherous.
7. Refined; fine; acute; as a subtil argument.
His subtil motivation was to continue his war with God, the serpent wanted to make God’s perfected created order fall into sin just like Lucifer fell. As you can see in the dictionary understanding of this wording subtil, the serpent was deceitful and treacherous.
This fall period with Adam and Eve allowed their eyes to get opened. “And the serpent said unto the woman, Ye shall not surely die: For God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil.” Verses 4-5.
The serpent knew that their eyes would get opened because before Adam and Eve fell into “SIN,” they lived in an innocent statehood. The devil, through his stealth manipulation, his deceitful treacherous “SUBTIL” scheme, wanted humanity to fall from grace so Lucifer could “TRY” to replace God by becoming a god himself in his new heaven, earth.
God Himself confirms this reality when He proclaims, “And the LORD God said, Behold, the man is become as one of us, to know good and evil: and now, lest he put forth his hand, and take also of the tree of life, and eat, and live for ever:”Genesis 3:22.
You, dear reader, might be asking okay, so the devil operates this world; what does that directly have to do with me? Well, please continue reading the following verse.
“In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them.” 2 – Corinthians 4:4.
A lost person (lost meaning “NOT” saved) is blinded in the minds of those who believe not. The only hope is the light of the glorious gospel of Christ.
You see, dear reader, the “LAWS OF NATURE” changed the second humanity fell from God’s grace. God created a perfect global order before Adam & Eve sinned, and their eyes opened to the knowledge of good and evil. Under this system of natural law, humanity would never have had any pain or suffering whatsoever. Physical defects, mental deformities, natural earthly environmental disasters (such as flooding, extreme heat, air pollutants, etc.) All other abnormalities would never have occurred if humanity did not enter a state of sinfulness. The laws of thermodynamics and all other scientific observable laws of nature would only have produced absolute harmony before sin entered the scene changing the entire atmosphere of all created living systems throughout time and space.
“In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. The same was in the beginning with God. All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made.”John 1:1-3.
At the beginning of creation, the “CREATOR” was the Word, and the Word was with God and “WAS” God. Without sin entering the equation, the laws of nature had complete total harmony. Why? Great Question. Answer: The Laws of Nature were under total submission to the Word of God.
At the beginning of sin within the created order, the fundamental system change under the laws of nature. Men removed God and served a new god…,” and humanity had a new god, Lucifer, who took control of this world, as already indicated in this article in 2 Corinthians Chapter 4:4“In whom the god of this world…”
All abnormalities (physical, physiological) of all living organisms are now defective, and all we see continuously is “ORDER OUT OF CHAOS.” That is why the devil loves those who believe in evolution, replacing the belief in the creationist system. Absolute pain, confusion, and suffering are what Lucifer desires in his direct rebellion against his Creator.
Example: The extra chromosome 21 leads to the physical features that occur among people with Down syndrome. This abnormality thereby causes – developmental challenges for such individuals. Under God’s perfected order (Prior Sinning), the laws of nature would have “NEVER” allowed this – aberration to co-exist within its scientifically created order.
Under the god of this world, sin changed everything. Our Holy Righteous God separated Himself from humanity, allowing decaying death to occur within all living and orbital structures.
“But to which of the angels said he at any time, Sit on my right hand, until I make thine enemies thy footstool?”Hebrews 1:13.
“But your iniquities have separated between you and your God, and your sins have hid his face from you, that he will not hear.”Isaiah 59:2.
Illustrated in Genesis, the biological makeup of females giving birth would now have pain during pregnancy. This natural law changed under the new conditions of fallen humanity and earth.
“Unto the woman he said, I will greatly multiply thy sorrow and thy conception; in sorrow thou shalt bring forth children; and thy desire shall be to thy husband, and he shall rule over thee.”Genesis 3:16.
The Book of Genesis also illustrates the truth of a fallen, perfected, created utopia (earthly heaven) as God “CURSED” the ground as the earth was now tainted with the biological incurable sin virus.
“And unto Adam he said, Because thou hast hearkened unto the voice of thy wife, and hast eaten of the tree, of which I commanded thee, saying, Thou shalt not eat of it: cursed is the ground for thy sake; in sorrow shalt thou eat of it all the days of thy life; Thorns also and thistles shall it bring forth to thee; and thou shalt eat the herb of the field; In the sweat of thy face shalt thou eat bread, till thou return unto the ground; for out of it wast thou taken: for dust thou art, and unto dust shalt thou return.”Genesis 3:17-19.
This sacred earthly paradise God had created for humanity got removed; thereby, humanity would now genetically speaking get forced to live as a creation that is biologically incapable of being cured from this unnatural state. This original unnatural statehood is now deemed natural since the corruption of sin altered the entire structure of the normality of our regulated scientific order.
a thermodynamic quantity representing the unavailability of a system’s thermal energy for conversion into mechanical work, often interpreted as the degree of disorder or randomness in the system.
“the second law of thermodynamics says that entropy always increases with time”
lack of order or predictability; gradual decline into disorder. “a marketplace where entropy reigns supreme”
Definitions from Oxford Languages
Observed by science, we understand that “ALL” living systems’ energy gradually declines, and thus the organismal structures break down into disorder. Most genuine Christians have probably never considered the reality that this “SIN NATURE” is why even stars in the millions of galaxies break down. This observed scriptural reality can thereby even get backed by modern-day scientific observation.
When we hear the known unsaved natural man claim that they can “NOT” believe in a God that created all of these horrific natural abnormalities, we should direct them to the eternal truth that this natural phenomenon was “NOT” desired by God. The genetic condition of fallen man’s choice to acquire knowledge between good & evil by using their
“FREE WILL” allowed for this to occur. Therefore, since our species chose this knowledge, they (us, humanity) declared war by disobeying the Creators’ structural system of the LAWS OF NATURE.
Remember, God had created an earthly beautiful, perfected paradise. The unsaved natural man must thereby get informed that this is the conditions man decided “NOT” God.
Remember this” natural man, the next time you hear a report that a star somewhere in space died, the laws of thermodynamics that allowed this to occur is because this beautiful singing star onto our God died because of our plague of sin.
“When the morning stars sang together, and all the sons of God shouted for joy“ Job 38:7.
Dear readers, my personal observational “opinion” is if humanity would “NOT” have fallen from grace (Adam & Eve (Genesis Chapter 3), the stars throughout “ALL” of created universal space would “NEVER” die. The laws of entropy would have had a continual energy supply (non-de-energizing “death”). Why? Because the Laws of Nature (notice Big N) created all living organismal structures with all planetary systems (plants (Earth, Stars, etc.) under a system of complete universal harmony. Once sin on the earth fell from grace, the entire scientific and mathematical structural methods changed. The sound “NEWS” is God allows our Stars to be indicators for our seasons.
“And God said, Let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs, and for seasons, and for days, and years:”Genesis 1:14.
By Elizabeth Landau, NASA’s Exoplanet Exploration Program
“We can’t hear it with our ears, but the stars in the sky are performing a concert, one that never stops. The biggest stars make the lowest, deepest sounds, like tubas and double basses. Small stars have high-pitched voices, like celestial flutes..”
“But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned”1 Corinthians 2:14.
“Therefore hath the curse devoured the earth, and they that dwell therein are desolate: therefore the inhabitants of the earth are burned, and few men left”Isaiah 24:6.
Now that we have discovered the power of sin let us look at how a genuine individual sincerely seeking the Lord can get saved. The Holy Scriptures undoubtedly teach that a person must repent towards God the Father and believe by faith that Jesus Christ is Lord.
“Testifying both to the Jews, and also to the Greeks, repentance toward God, and faith toward our Lord Jesus Christ”Acts 20:21.

Many apostate churches today have decided to hold to the belief that repentance is a work-based belief. That only faith alone is sufficient to receive salvation. Some churches even preach that repentance means a person had a state of non-belief, and they change to a belief in christianity. These unscriptural beliefs are wrong and can not get backed up by scriptural writings. Neither is it backed up by the literal dictionary meaning of repentance.
“And when he was come to the other side into the country of the Gergesenes, there met him two possessed with devils, coming out of the tombs, exceeding fierce, so that no man might pass by that way. And, behold, they cried out, saying, What have we to do with thee, Jesus, thou Son of God? art thou come hither to torment us before the time? And there was a good way off from them an herd of many swine feeding. So the devils besought him, saying, If thou cast us out, suffer us to go away into the herd of swine. And he said unto them, Go. And when they were come out, they went into the herd of swine: and, behold, the whole herd of swine ran violently down a steep place into the sea, and perished in the waters. And they that kept them fled, and went their ways into the city, and told every thing, and what was befallen to the possessed of the devils. And, behold, the whole city came out to meet Jesus: and when they saw him, they besought him that he would depart out of their coasts”Matthew 8:28-34.
As you can see mentioned in Matthew 8:28-34 the devils (fallen angels” “INCLUDING” Lucifer himself” naturally believes in God the Creator. The problem with humanity is that “WE HAVE RECEIVED FREE WILL” Thereby free will requires us to turn from the knowledge of evil.
“And the LORD God said, Behold, the man is become as one of us, to know good and evil: and now, lest he put forth his hand, and take also of the tree of life, and eat, and live for ever”Genesis 3:22.
“Thou believest that there is one God; thou doest well: the devils also believe, and tremble.” James 2:19.
All humans, by nature, in our “NEW” fallen statehood, since the laws of nature were altered during the fall from Adam and Eve, require us to choose God, which by nature, the Almighty, is “GOOD”
“The LORD is good to all: and his tender mercies are over all his works”Psalms 145:9.
“And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose” Romans 8:28.
“For thou, Lord, art good, and ready to forgive; and plenteous in mercy unto all them that call upon thee”Psalms 86:5.
By nature, humans have also received the liberty of free will under “natural law” to disobey God’s laws. This legally declared right under constituted statute comes at an eternal price. Thereby understanding this reality, we have a choice to make. Do we as a people repent?
Meaning: Turn from evil and live or continue in evil and enterally die?
“For the flesh lusteth against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh: and these are contrary the one to the other: so that ye cannot do the things that ye would”Galatians 5:17.
Isaiah 1:18-20 Proclaims:“Come now, and let us reason together, saith the LORD: though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool. If ye be willing and obedient, ye shall eat the good of the land: But if ye refuse and rebel, ye shall be devoured with the sword: for the mouth of the LORD hath spoken it.”
What the lost individual can not seem to reconcile is that humanity always believes “THEY ARE GOOD” The problem with this reality is we (humans) in the new natural law statehood of our fleshly body is genetically altered to naturally rebel against God Almighty.
“As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one:”Romans 3:10.
This rebellion is evident in the Holy Scriptures because Adam and Eve genetically were altered when their eyes got opened to understanding evil. Their once innocent state was gone, with the eye-opening realization that evil got embedded within their genetic makeup. This curse (as you can call it) got genetically coded in our deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA). This curse gave humanity a virus that altered their genetic makeup to being prone to a sinful nature.
Thereby the old natural law, God’s Perfected Order got altered, and we got placed under the new natural law of a fallen state.
“Behold, I was shapen in iniquity; And in sin did my mother conceive me. Behold, thou desirest truth in the inward parts: And in the hidden part thou shalt make me to know wisdom”
To those who say well, I did not partake of eating the forbidden fruit, so why should I get punished?
Regardless, if only Adam and Eve disobeyed and fell from grace from eating the forbidden fruit, this fruit altered the entire genetic makeup of every human being since the fall. Remember the above-mentioned scriptural verses Psalm 51:5-10 –“Behold, I was shapen in iniquity; And in sin did my mother conceive me…”
Thereby when a lost individual sincerely desires to seek fellowship with God, they must acknowledge their faults against the Designer of all existence. With a sincere heart, they must acknowledge their faults and desire to repent (change their mindset) with God. As already mentioned, we declared war against God once humanity fell into sin. The only way a person can get Saved is by them choosing the side of the war they want to be on. Do you choose God’s side or the god of this world’s side (Lucifer)?
Remember, Lucifer desires to be like God, so he masquerades as a god, making you believe he is the real God when in reality, he is nothing but the god your body naturally desires.
“In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them” – 2 Corinthians 4:4.
“The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it” – Jeremiah 17:9.
This way when a person truly desires to enter into a real relationship with the only “ONE TRUE GOD” they must accept God’s terms of surrender as this person was once declared enemy against God by natural law.
Surrendering is “NOT A WORK OF SALVATION” It is under the liberty of free will to realize that you are the Designer’s enemy. You are an enemy against the Creator. You, out of free choice and thus acceptance, acknowledge that you need God by changing your mind (repenting) and allowing His heavenly pardon of grace upon the souls of those who choose the winning side.
“No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon”Matthew 6:24.
Remember again in 2 Corinthians 4:4 “In whom the god of this world..” Therefore, remember you can not have two masters. It is very simplistic math.
- A: You choose the god of the world = Lucifer (the Devil)
- B: You choose the one true enteral God of Creation? (Yahweh)
“Know ye not that they which run in a race run all, but one receiveth the prize? So run, that ye may obtain” 1 Corinthians 9:24.
Which prize are you desiring? Which side do you think is going to win this war? The fallen creation side (the devil and his army)? Or the Creator’s side that is “ALL POWERFUL.”
Logically a person should be able to accept that God requires repentance because he requires a sincere changing heart to lean toward Him. He requires a willful change in the individual’s mind. This choice is not work’s salvation. This decision is a genetically natural free will granted liberty you have had since birth.
You can choose the god of the world (2 Corinthians 4:4) or the Creator. You must plead guilty for the war crimes you have committed against the Almighty. The war crimes is being a sinner.
The Book of Mark 2:17 is a robust legal case illustrating the importance of repentance being required to receive” “REAL SALVATION.”
“When Jesus heard it, he saith unto them, They that are whole have no need of the physician, but they that are sick: I came not to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance”Mark 2:17.
This verse in Mark 2:17 clearly shows us two things. Let’s therefore break down this amazing scriptural verse.
Number One: Jesus proclaimed they that are whole do not need a physician. A perfect person needs no physician.
Number Two: However, a sick person (the sin virus genetically in all humanity) needs a doctor. Jesus was our great healer. This Healer, this Doctor, thus calls for us sinners to repentance (our free will accepts this by accepting His medicine by understanding that we need our sins removed.)
“And from Jesus Christ, who is the faithful witness, and the first begotten of the dead, and the prince of the kings of the earth. Unto him that loved us, and washed us from our sins in his own blood,”Revelation 1:5.
“If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.” 1 John 1:19.
“Come now, and let us reason together, saith the LORD: though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool.”Isaiah 1:18.
“How much more shall the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit offered himself without spot to God, purge your conscience from dead works to serve the living God?”Hebrews 9:14.
