The New Pharisees

The Voice of One

SNL’s Dana Carvey as The Church Lady

The Pharisees were a Jewish faction during the time of Christ. These guys were famous for reducing spirituality to a system of rules. The law of Moses contains roughly 600 laws. The Pharisees, in an ever-nuanced attempt to be right, doubled that number. Whoever didn’t comply with their system of morals, rituals, and traditions risked being criticized, ostracized, or executed.

Jesus denounced phariseeism vigorously. That said, it continues to plague the church to one degree or another. Anytime Christianity is less about Christ and more about a system of morals, doctrines, or traditions, we are guilty of phariseeism.

Secular society calls modern phariseeism “fundamentalism.” (Not to be confused with the fundamentalist movement of the early 1900s). Non-Christians react to fundamentalists’ attempt to impose their extreme religious views on others. I share this concern.

Non-Christians often think phariseeism or fundamentalism is a religious problem…

A DREAM OF A COMING FAMINE

IMG 007

“Behold, the days are coming,” declares the Lord GOD, “when I will send a famine on the land— not a famine of bread, nor a thirst for water, but of hearing the words of the LORD. People will stagger from sea to sea and wander from north to east, searching for the word of the LORD, but they will not find it.” (Amos 8:11-12)

Not long ago the Lord gave me a dream, a very real, disturbing dream that I have held onto for sometime, simply because I just did not feel that the time was right for it to be published – until now. The dream is as follows:

I was with a group of people who were visiting a place – a house, of someone we knew. The person in question was not home, but the house was one of a great mansion, it was the home…

Richard Wurmbrand False Prophet

Spiritual Abuse Sanctuary


Much has been made of Richard Wurmbrand being prisoner in Rumanian Communist Prisons, his book, “Tortured for Christ” and the suffering he endured as a “Christian pastor” believer in Christ. These things as well as his intellectualism and the fact that he founded what has become known as the Voice of the Martyrs has propelled him and the organization into a huge widely known, and so far, “well-respected” iconic ministry of mega proportions with vast financial resources and power.
All that seems admiral on the surface but what has apparently slipped under the radar is his ecumenical, and Marxist socialist so-called “Christian” apologetics and doctrine.

More recently during this past year of 2012 is the suicide of the US Director of the Voice of the Martyrs, Tom White, under mysterious circumstances, apparently as a result of the molestation of a minor 10 yr old girl.

All well and good you…

Do Sinners “Split Hell Wide Open”?

I’ve often heard Christians say, “If I hadn’t been saved, I would have split hell wide open”

AAEAAQAAAAAAAAcQAAAAJDBiYmMzYTYxLTQ4MTQtNDM0Yi1iNDAyLTMzMGMyM2E5ZDlmZA

I thought when they said that…”No, we aren’t that special as big time sinners. Hell would have just opened it’s gaping mouth to receive that person as just another foolish man or woman who refused to accept the Lord’s free offer of Grace and Salvation”. Like the song of the late Frank Sinatra, “they did it their way”. Mankind in it’s folly has tried to circumvent the Truth of the Gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ, as if to shake their fist in protest to the moving of the planets. It won’t work, It never has worked and never will work. Without believing in and receiving the Lordship of the Lord Jesus, and being born again, there is no other way to salvation.

Unbelievers often say, God is unfair to send people to a place of torment. To that I say, they should be glad He came as the Lamb of God and sacrificed Himself at the hands of wicked men who were His own creation in order to save them and free them from the bondage of sin and spiritual death. How can anyone blame the Lord God for crimes they themselves committed? Is that too hard for anyone to understand? Then begin seeking the truth of God in the Bible, and in prayer; the Lord will respond to anyone honestly seeking Him in spirit and in truth.

 

 “And do not fear those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul. But rather fear Him who is able to destroy both soul and body in hell.” Matt:10-28

 

 

THIS LAND IS YOUR LAND

Real Christianity

         Every year I always look forward to a particular anniversary—The Crossing of the Jordan River. The spiritual implications of this date are off the charts. Every real Christian should be paying absolutely close attention to this time, both in one’s personal walk with the Lord Jesus, but also to that which He is doing for His community in general. This has everything to do with the Great Awakening.

         I believe the implications of the Jordan River Crossing are especially pronounced this year. Please pray and seek the Lord so you can be in tune with what He has planned.

         The anniversary of the Crossing of the Jordan River is Nisan 10 on the Hebrew calendar, which occurs this Monday, April 18, 2016.

         “Okay Joshua. Listen up. It’s time to take the Promised Land.”

         “Cool. Hey look! There it is!”
