In the days of the major prophets of GOD, the people of Israel and Judah were very much like the people of the world today. GOD hasn’t changed either. HE says, “For I am the LORD, I change not” (Malachi 3:6).

GOD is the same in the New Testament as HE is in the Old Testament.1 People of today say, “No one is perfect!” If that is true, no one will be able to go to Heaven. Everyone today will spend eternity in the Lake of Fire! There cannot be any imperfection, any sin, in Heaven!2 What we are when we die is what we will be for eternity. There is absolutely no purgatory! “It is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment” (Hebrews 9:27). Once we die, we cannot be elevated out of sin or bought out of our eternal home. (The false idea that there is “purgatory” and that you can change where a soul goes after death with your money is just one of the hundreds of lies taught by Catholicism.) Scripture states, “None of them can by any means redeem his brother, nor give to GOD a ransom for him” (Psalm 49:7).

We are not required by a just GOD to do something we cannot do. HE gives us all the tools and instructions in the WORD of GOD needed to walk in holiness with HIM. The Apostle Paul stated, “Walk in the SPIRIT, and ye shall not fulfil the lust of the flesh” (Galatians 5:16). The power of the HOLY SPIRIT of GOD dwelling within us makes us more than able to overcome temptation and sin.3 We cannot be forced into sinning. We make the choice.

The book of James states, “Blessed is the man that endureth temptation: for when he is tried, he shall receive the crown of life, which the LORD hath promised to them that love HIM. Let no man say when he is tempted, I am tempted of GOD: for GOD cannot be tempted with evil, neither tempteth HE any man: But every man is tempted, when he is drawn away of his own lust, and enticed. Then when lust hath conceived, it bringeth forth sin: and sin, when it is finished, bringeth forth death” (James 1:12-15).

GOD, and I’m talking about the real GOD here, sends evil upon sinners who choose to refuse to live as HE commands! The entire Bible, the Old Testament and New Testament, tells the whole story, the same story, over and over again. “Thus saith the LORD of HOSTS, the GOD of Israel; Ye have seen all the evil that I have brought upon Jerusalem, and upon all the cities of Judah; and, behold, this day they are a desolation, and no man dwelleth therein, Because of their wickedness which they have committed to provoke ME to anger, in that they went to burn incense, and to serve other gods, whom they knew not, neither they, you, nor your fathers. Howbeit I sent unto you all MY servants the prophets, rising early and sending them, saying, Oh, do not this abominable thing that I hate. But they hearkened not, nor inclined their ear to turn from their wickedness, to burn no incense unto other gods. Wherefore MY fury and MINE anger was poured forth, and was kindled in the cities of Judah and in the streets of Jerusalem; and they are wasted and desolate, as at this day” (Jeremiah 44:2-6).

GOD told Jeremiah the prophet to tell the remnant of the Israelites to stay in Israel and they would live. However, if they would travel to Egypt, hoping to escape hardship, they would die. They would not believe GOD!

Jeremiah 44:7-10: “Therefore now thus saith the LORD, the GOD of HOSTS, the GOD of ISRAEL [not Palestine]; Wherefore commit ye this great evil against your souls, to cut off from you man and woman, child and suckling, out of Judah, to leave you none to remain; In that you provoke ME unto wrath with the works of your hands, burning incense unto other gods in the land of Egypt [from where GOD delivered them with mighty signs and wonders], where you have gone to dwell, that you might cut yourselves off, and that you might be a curse and a reproach among all the nations of the earth?

“Have ye forgotten the wickedness of your fathers, and the wickedness of the kings of Judah, and the wickedness of their wives, and your own wickedness, and the wickedness of your wives, which they have committed in the land of Judah, and in the streets of Jerusalem? They are not humbled even unto this day, neither have they feared, nor walked in MY LAW, nor in MY STATUTES, that I set before you and before your fathers.”

The LORD JESUS taught that the first and most important commandment is TO LOVE THE LORD OUR GOD WITH ALL OF OUR HEART, ALL OF OUR SOUL, ALL OF OUR MIND, AND ALL OF OUR STRENGTH (Mark 12:29-30).4 This means that no one is to put anything before GOD; do not place women, men, food, music, money, or anything else before the LORD your GOD. A partial commitment to GOD is not enough! JESUS warned an early New Testament church, and all believers: “I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot: I would thou wert cold or hot. So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of MY mouth” (Revelation 3:15-16).

These words are set before the whole world: “In the beginning GOD created the heaven and the earth” (Genesis 1:1). Genesis says HE created everything by HIS WORD in every detail. GOD said this in Genesis 1:29: “Behold, I have given you every herb bearing seed, which is upon the face of all the earth, and every tree, in the which is the fruit of a tree yielding seed; to you [and for everyone] it shall be for food.” GOD gave life to everything which has life, every beast of the earth, every fowl of the air, and everything that creeps upon the earth. SO GOD GIVES LIFE, AND HE WILL TAKE IT AWAY (Deuteronomy 32:39). I submit to this GREAT POWER who hates evil and loves those who fear HIM and serve HIM!5 I would advise you never to get HIM angry, either!

In Jeremiah 44:11-13, GOD says, “Behold, I will set MY face against you [against all sinners] for evil, and to cut off all Judah. And I will take the remnant of Judah [the only ones who remain], that have set their faces to go into the land of Egypt to sojourn there, and they shall all be consumed, and fall in the land of Egypt; they shall even be consumed by the sword and by the famine: they shall die, from the least even unto the greatest.… For I will punish them that dwell in the land of Egypt, as I have punished Jerusalem, by the sword, by the famine, and by the pestilence [sickness, disease].”

GOD is angry with all the nations.6 Plagues shall multiply greatly as people ignore HIS LAWS and fight the WORD of GOD and the followers of CHRIST (not Catholicism). According to GOD’S WORD, it is the Vatican, by the spirit of Satan dwelling in them, that is causing all the trouble in the world! (Isaiah 14:15-17, Ezekiel 28:12-19, Revelation 12:12, 18:2-3, 23-24, 20:7-10).

The book of Revelation states, “And the woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet colour, and decked with gold and precious stones and pearls, having a golden cup in her hand full of abominations and filthiness of her fornication: And upon her forehead was a name written, MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH. And I saw the woman drunken with the blood of the saints, and with the blood of the martyrs of JESUS” (Revelation 17:4-6).

“And here is the mind which hath wisdom. The seven heads are seven mountains, on which the woman sitteth” (Revelation 17:9). Vatican City sits upon the seven mountains, or hills, of Rome. “And the woman which thou sawest is that great city, which reigneth over the kings of the earth” (Revelation 17:18).

The New Testament says JESUS was “declared to be the SON of GOD with power, according to the SPIRIT of holiness, by the resurrection from the dead: By whom we have received grace [power] and apostleship, for obedience to the faith among all nations, for HIS name” (Romans 1:4-5).

Romans 1:16, 18-23 states: “For I am not ashamed of the Gospel of CHRIST: for it is the power of GOD unto salvation to every one who believes; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek [the Gentile]…For the wrath of GOD is revealed from Heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness; Because that which may be known of GOD is manifest in them; for GOD hath showed it unto them. For the invisible things of HIM from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even HIS eternal power and GODHEAD; so that they are without excuse: Because that, when they knew GOD [they knew that HE created everything perfectly], they glorified HIM not as GOD [They couldn’t care less that HE brings to life and that HE kills. JESUS said, Don’t fear him who can kill you, which is the devil, but fear HIM who is able to kill, then send your soul to Hell. (Matthew 10:28)], neither were they thankful [that GOD warns us how HE is so we know how we should live in order to enter HEAVEN]; but they became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened.

“Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools, 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.” The glory of the uncorruptible GOD is that we are created in HIS glorious image. But it thrills the darkened, foolish hearts of man to imagine they are animals, and that they like, love, to imitate the sex practices of the beast.7

So “GOD also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves: Who changed the truth of GOD into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the CREATOR, who is blessed for ever. Amen. For this cause GOD gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature: And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was good [justice, Hell].

“And even as they did not like to retain GOD in their knowledge, GOD gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient; Being filled with all unrighteousness, [these are the characteristics of the homosexual, because GOD turns them over to this. Verse 32 says they are worthy of death. The homosexual and lesbian are filled with] fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers, Backbiters, haters of GOD, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents, Without understanding, covenant-breakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful: Who knowing the judgment of GOD, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them” (Romans 1:24-32).

“The LORD killeth, and maketh alive: HE bringeth down to the grave, and bringeth up” (1 Samuel 2:6). GOD creates us and places HIS breath of life into us. We are never to kill that sacred life placed within each person. Abortion is murder. How can anyone think that they have the right to murder without receiving a just judgment when they stand before GOD? GOD will repay them and those who perform the murders of these innocent souls!

We are to keep our bodies, souls, and spirits in holy communion with GOD. JESUS told HIS disciples and all of us, HIS body on earth: “Behold, I give unto you power [authority] to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy: and nothing shall by any means hurt you” (Luke 10:19). “But ye shall receive power, after that the HOLY SPIRIT is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto ME both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth” (Acts 1:8).

If you repent of your sinful ways, GOD will be merciful to you. HE is waiting for you to come to HIM! If you ask HIM to, HE will cleanse away all of your sins with the blood HE shed on the cross for you—no matter how many or how bad they are. HE will not remember those sins you committed ever again.8 HE will place HIS powerful HOLY SPIRIT in you, which will give you a new spiritual birth, and the guidance and comfort you need.9 But you are required to make a total commitment to GOD, a total surrender, and completely turn from your old life of sin.10

“Seek ye the LORD while HE may be found, call ye upon HIM while HE is near: Let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts: and let him return unto the LORD, and HE will have mercy upon him; and to our GOD, for HE will abundantly pardon” (Isaiah 55:6-7).

Make the LORD JESUS your LORD, the LORD of your life today. If you want this new life on earth and eternal life in Heaven, say this prayer and be thankful:


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 former 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

After salvation, JESUS said to be baptized, fully submerged in water, in the name of the FATHER, and of the SON, and of the HOLY SPIRIT.12 Then study the King James Version Bible, and, for your benefit and the benefit of others, do what it says.13

CHRIST and GOD the FATHER now live in you through the HOLY SPIRIT. There is a way you can receive a fuller portion of the divine nature of GOD in you. The more the divine nature of GOD lives in you, the more you will be able to stand against the temptations that have so easily moved so many millions of Christians away from salvation. Pray for the baptism in the HOLY SPIRIT.14 For instructions on how to receive the baptism in the HOLY SPIRIT and to receive more of GOD’S holy nature, ask for our literature or call. For without holiness, no man shall see GOD (Hebrews 12:14).

If you want the world saved, as JESUS commands, then don’t rob GOD of HIS tithes and offerings. GOD said, “Will a man rob GOD? Yet ye have robbed ME. But ye say, Wherein have we robbed THEE? In tithes and offerings. Ye are cursed with a curse: for ye have robbed ME, even this whole nation [and this whole world]. Bring ye all the tithes [a ‘tithe’ is 10% of your gross income] into the storehouse, that there may be meat [Spiritual food] in MINE house [souls saved], and prove ME now herewith, saith the LORD of HOSTS, if I will not open you the windows of Heaven, and pour you out a blessing, that there shall not be room enough to receive it. And I will rebuke the devourer for your sakes, and he shall not destroy the fruits of your ground; neither shall your vine cast her fruit before the time in the field, saith the LORD of HOSTS. And all nations shall call you blessed: for ye shall be a delightsome land, saith the LORD of HOSTS” (Malachi 3:8-12).
