In Luke 21:36, Jesus warns the whole world to watch and “pray always, that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the SON OF MAN.” Are you worthy to escape what Jesus says will come upon the world? Read chapter 21 of Luke and you will see that Jerusalem was destroyed by King Titus, and now at the end of time, Satan, the devil, is full of wrath because he knows that his time is short (Revelation 12:12)!
Jesus says, “So likewise ye, when ye see these things come to pass, know ye that the kingdom of God is nigh at hand. Verily I say unto you, This generation shall not pass away, till all be fulfilled. Heaven and earth shall pass away: but MY WORDS shall not pass away. And take heed to yourselves, lest at any time your hearts be overcharged with [excess, overindulgence of food, drugs, alcohol, sex, or anything] surfeiting, and drunkenness, and cares of this life [such as not always praying, or not defending one another, not testifying], and so that day come upon you unawares. For as a snare shall it come on all them that dwell on the face of the whole earth. [Now Jesus tells why everyone should, must, pray always. Again] Watch ye therefore, and PRAY ALWAYS [why?], that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man” (Luke 21:31-36).
“And when it was evening, His disciples came to Him [Jesus], saying, This is a desert place [as if He didn’t know], and the time is now past; send the multitude away, that they may go into the villages, and buy themselves victuals [something to eat]. But Jesus said unto them, They need not depart; give ye them to eat. And they say unto Him, We have here but five loaves, and two fishes. He said, Bring them hither to Me. And He commanded the multitude to sit down on the grass, and took the five loaves, and the two fishes, and looking up to Heaven, He blessed, and brake, and gave the loaves to His disciples, and the disciples to the multitude. And they did all eat, and were filled: and they took up of the fragments that remained twelve baskets full. And they that had eaten were about five thousand men, beside women and children. And straightway Jesus constrained [forced, compelled, or obliged] His disciples to get into a ship, and to go before Him unto the other side, while He sent the multitudes away. And when He had sent the multitudes away, He went up into a mountain apart to pray [JESUS, who is God incarnate, WENT TO PRAY]: and when the evening was come, He was there alone” (Matthew 14:15-23).
“If ye then be risen with Christ, [when you are praying] seek those things which are above, [from] where Christ sitteth on the right hand of God,” such as victory over Satan, that our enemies—those who hate us—will be saved (Colossians 3:1).
When you are praying for the victory over the devil, the devil will do everything in his power to get you to set your mind on some earthly or some vile experience that you have had in the past.1 The devil works on your old memory, which, if you go there, it will weaken your ability, or even cause you to completely lose your chance to get the victory that you have set your prayer out to receive. This is why Colossians 3:2-3 tells us to, “Set your affection on things above [on the Lord who is able to give you the victory you’re seeking], not on things on the earth [or old memories, or new worldly things that are on earth! For we are supposed to be ‘dead’ to the things of the trashy past and present2]. For ye are dead [with Christ to the flesh, to Satan, so the devil can’t use you any longer if] your life is hid with Christ in God.”
Then, “When Christ, who [now] is our life, shall appear, then shall ye also appear with Him in glory. Mortify [that is, kill by the Spirit] therefore your members which are upon the earth; fornication, uncleanness, inordinate affection, evil concupiscence, and covetousness, which is idolatry [because your mind is on sin rather than the Lord, making it idolatry]: For which things’ sake the wrath of God cometh on the children of disobedience” (Colossians 3:4-6). When you are praying or setting your affections on things above, the devil will tempt you with sin.3
Romans 13:1 says, “Let every soul be subject unto the higher powers [the Lord who also is the Word of God, and God’s ministers—those who teach and preach God’s words—are the rulers that God has ordained]. For there is no power but of God: the powers that be [in the spiritual realm] are ordained of God.”
The demonic, secular government allows false religions to be spoken of highly and preached about in public schools, but it doesn’t allow Jesus, the Word of God, to be mentioned.4 The new Bibles are all secular, devilish government Bibles, which tell you the powers that be are the secular government.5 They say that no one is perfect, that even after you’re saved and a son of God, you’re still a sinner, instead of a new creature in Christ Jesus and, again, a son of God.6 Of course, before we are saved, we all have sinned and come short of the glory of God, but after conversion, we are no longer sinners, if we are obedient to the Word of God; we are all new creatures, sons and daughters of God.7
The new Bibles have enough fallacy in them to destroy your soul.8 They cleverly say Jesus heals, raises people from the dead; they instruct people to pray and seek the Lord, but they say, YOU’RE STILL A SINNER, and that YOU CAN’T BE PERFECT AS GOD COMMANDS that you must be perfect (Genesis 17:1, Deuteronomy 18:13, Matthew 5:48),9 and that Satan’s one world government is the power of God, when the Bible plainly tells us that it is the devil’s government, and that it is powered by the devil (Revelation 12:9, 13:2, 4).10 There are two powers—good and evil. Today’s government, school system, media, and religions are evil!
Revelation 13:2 and 4 say the dragon who is the devil and Satan is the one who gives his weak and beggarly power to today’s one world Roman Catholic Vatican, evil, political, anti-Christ, anti-KJV Bible government. Why do you think that the true Bible is outlawed? Why do you think the Christians at Waco, Texas, were murdered by the so-called U.S. government? And why do you think that I’m in prison? And why do they say I’m dangerous—so dangerous that the government is forbidding people to come to my church? Why have they taken our children, put them in foster homes, compelled them to go to skeevy public schools, and are adopting them out to homosexuals? It’s because I and my church have been preaching the true Bible, not the government Roman Catholic Vaticanite new Bibles. They don’t care if the new Bibles are in schools, because they are one of the major reasons that the whole world is deceived (Revelation 12:9).
Read only the old King James Version Bible, not the New King James Version. Know that you are a new creation, a king, a son or daughter of God, a priest, and sinless.11 If you have sinned in the past by ignorance, then God will forgive you, if you will believe God instead of this vicious, satanic, secular government who has been given its power (power to lie, steal, murder, persecute) from the devil.12 Don’t set your affection on things below, but set your affection on things above, not on things on the earth (Colossians 3:2).
The devil knows as well as God knows that the world loves darkness more than light, the light of God, which is the Word of God, and which is Jesus. John 3:19 tells us why the world hates true Christianity and the true and old KJV Bible. “And this is the condemnation [of the world], that light [the Word of God in the flesh of humanity—Jesus] is come into the world, and men [of the world] loved darkness rather than light [why?], because their deeds were evil [and still are]. For every one that doeth evil [such as the anti-Christ government of today] hateth the light [the true Word of God], neither cometh to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved. But he that doeth truth cometh to the light [the true Word of God], that his deeds may be made manifest, that they are wrought [brought forth] in God” (John 3:19-21).
So the deeds of Godly men are to study the Word of God and pray day and night, continuously.13 “Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints; And for me, that utterance may be given unto me, that I may open my mouth boldly, to make known the mystery of the gospel” (Ephesians 6:18-19).
“But the end of all things is at hand: be ye therefore sober, and watch unto prayer. And above all things [more than everything] have fervent charity [love, which means to keep all the commandments before one another, everyone14] among yourselves: for charity [Godly love] shall cover the multitude of sins” (1 Peter 4:7-8).
“And the prayer of faith shall save the sick, and the Lord shall raise him up; and if he have committed sins [of ignorance], they shall be forgiven him. Confess your faults one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much. Elias was a man subject to like passions as we are, and he prayed earnestly that it might not rain: and it rained not on the earth by the space of three years and six months. And he prayed again, and the heaven gave rain, and the earth brought forth her fruit. Brethren, if any of you do err from the truth [ignorantly], and one convert him; Let him know, that he which converteth the sinner from the error of his way shall save a soul from death, and shall hide a multitude of sins [of ignorance]” (James 5:15-20). If you want to be forgiven of your sins, only confess them and repent, and the living God will forgive you and restore you. I pray you will do it before it’s too late. Come to Christ now by saying this prayer!
My Lord and my God, have mercy upon my soul, a sinner. 1 I believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of the Living God. 2 I believe that He died on the cross and shed His precious blood for the forgiveness of all my sins. 3 I believe that God raised Jesus from the dead by the power of the Holy Spirit 4 and that He sits on the right hand of God at this moment, hearing my confession of sin and this prayer. 5 I open up the door of my heart and I invite You into my heart, Lord Jesus. 6 Wash all of my filthy sins away in the precious blood that You shed in my place on the cross at Calvary. 7 You will not turn me away, Lord Jesus, You will forgive my sins and save my soul. I know because Your Word, the Bible says so. 8 Your Word says that You will turn no one away, and that includes me. 9 Therefore, I know that You have heard me, and I know that You have answered me, and I know that I am saved. 10 And I thank You, Lord Jesus, for saving my soul, and I will show my thankfulness by doing as You command and sin no more. 11
You've just completed the first step in a series of five steps which are necessary to receive salvation. Your second step is to deny yourself and take up your cross daily and follow Jesus for the purpose of mortifying your flesh, that is, for putting to death your own will, your soulful self, and the world with all of its lusts. All these must be baptized into the death of Christ.
Step three is your resurrection from the satanic life of Adam unto the sinless life of Christ. Step four is your ascension into a position of authority to reign for God with Christ on earth, and the fifth step is to reign for God in Christ on earth to the end for the purpose of bringing about the kingdom of Heaven on earth. You must learn the Word of God, submit yourselves one to another, and do what the Word says so that the church and the world may see evidence of your submission to God’s Word, His order, and His authority in and by you.
Praise the Lord. May God bless and reward you abundantly.
Yours in the wonderful name of Jesus,
