GRAPES

GOD said, “It is not good that the man should be alone,” so HE made him a helpmate (Genesis 2:18). But was she really a helpmate? No, she wasn’t. She caused him to sin, and she caused the entire human race to be on their way to Hell (Genesis 3:1-19). Because of her, CHRIST, in HIS mercy, had to die, to save what this “helpmate” started.

Women have a hard time keeping themselves straight.1 Even if they have a Spiritually strong husband, they are unable to keep the rules. They won’t listen to GOD or to their own husbands, as GOD commands them to do.2

Why is this so when we, both men and women, by CHRIST, through HIM, have access to the throne of GOD by one SPIRIT unto the FATHER (Ephesians 2:18)?

If you are really saved, “you are no more strangers and foreigners, but fellowcitizens with the saints, and of the household of GOD; And are built upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets, JESUS CHRIST HIMSELF being the chief corner stone; In whom all the building fitly framed together groweth unto an Holy temple in the LORD: In whom you also are builded together for an habitation [living place] of GOD through the SPIRIT” (Ephesians 2:19-22). We have access to GOD’S throne if we are one of the many righteous ones who, by our study of and our faith in GOD’S WORD, are able to escape heresy!

One of the many heresies of the Roman Catholic Church is that Mary, the mother of JESUS our LORD, was sinless and was a perpetual virgin. These are one hundred percent heresies, false, provable by the Holy, infallible Scriptures.

Mary was a sinner, as the Bible plainly tells us, and she needed a SAVIOR, as all of us do. The only one who was born without sin and was sinless throughout HIS entire life was JESUS, and is JESUS. In the book of Luke 1:40, Mary entered into the house of Zacharias, the husband of Elisabeth, and saluted Elisabeth. “When Elisabeth heard the salutation of Mary, the babe [John the Baptist] leaped in her womb; and Elisabeth was filled with the HOLY SPIRIT: And she spoke out [in the SPIRIT] with a loud voice, and said, Blessed art thou among women, and blessed is the fruit of thy womb. And whence is this to me, that the mother of my LORD should come to me?” (Luke 1:41-43). Elisabeth said, as soon as she heard the voice of Mary’s salutation, “the babe [the future John the Baptist] leaped in my womb for joy” (verse 44). So the SPIRIT in Elisabeth stated that Mary was blessed because she believed. (This is in verse 45.) We are also blessed when we believe and do the commandments. The devils also believe and tremble (James 2:19). “For there shall be a performance of those things which were told her from the LORD. And Mary said, My soul doth magnify the LORD, And my spirit hath rejoiced in GOD my SAVIOR” (Luke 1:45-47). Here Mary admits that she needs her SAVIOR to save her from her sins. And as for Mary being a perpetual virgin, Matthew 13:55-56 and Mark 6:3 say, “Is not this the carpenter’s son? is not HIS mother called Mary? and HIS brethren [not disciples], James, and Joses, and Simon, and Judas? And HIS sisters, are they not all with us? Whence then hath this man all these things?”

The devil in the Roman Catholic cult is trying to deify Mary, make her a member of the GODHEAD, but the only Deity is GOD the FATHER, GOD the WORD which became the SON, and GOD the HOLY SPIRIT.3 GOD says there is no queen in Heaven.4

“The children gather wood, and the fathers kindle the fire, and the women knead their dough, to make cakes to the queen of Heaven, and to pour out drink offerings unto other gods, that they may provoke ME to anger. Do they provoke ME to anger? saith the LORD: do they not provoke themselves to the confusion of their own faces?” (Jeremiah 7:18-19).

“Then all the men which knew that their wives had burned incense unto other gods, and all the women that stood by, a great multitude, even all the people that dwelt in the land of Egypt, in Pathros, answered Jeremiah, saying, As for the word that thou hast spoken unto us in the name of the LORD, we will not hearken unto thee. But we will certainly do whatsoever thing goeth forth out of our own mouth, to burn incense unto the queen of Heaven, and to pour out drink offerings unto her, as we have done, we, and our fathers, our kings, and our princes, in the cities of Judah, and in the streets of Jerusalem: for then had we plenty of victuals, and were well, and saw no evil. But since we left off to burn incense to the queen of Heaven, and to pour out drink offerings unto her, we have wanted all things, and have been consumed by the sword and by the famine. 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?

“Then Jeremiah said unto all the people, to the men, and to the women, and to all the people which had given him that answer, saying, The incense that ye burned in the cities of Judah, and in the streets of Jerusalem, ye, and your fathers, your kings, and your princes, and the people of the land, did not the LORD remember them, and came it not into his mind? So that the LORD could no longer bear, because of the evil of your doings, and because of the abominations which ye have committed; therefore is your land a desolation, and an astonishment, and a curse, without an inhabitant, as at this day. Because ye have burned incense, and because ye have sinned against the LORD, and have not obeyed the voice of the LORD, nor walked in HIS law, nor in HIS statutes, nor in HIS testimonies; therefore this evil is happened unto you, as at this day.

“Moreover Jeremiah said unto all the people, and to all the women, Hear the word of the LORD, all Judah that are in the land of Egypt: Thus saith the LORD of hosts, the GOD of Israel, saying; Ye and your wives have both spoken with your mouths, and fulfilled with your hand, saying, We will surely perform our vows that we have vowed, to burn incense to the queen of Heaven, and to pour out drink offerings unto her: ye will surely accomplish your vows, and surely perform your vows. Therefore hear ye the word of the LORD, all Judah that dwell in the land of Egypt; Behold, I have sworn by MY great name, saith the LORD, that MY name shall no more be named in the mouth of any man of Judah in all the land of Egypt, saying, The LORD GOD liveth. Behold, I will watch over them for evil, and not for good: and all the men of Judah that are in the land of Egypt shall be consumed by the sword and by the famine, until there be an end of them” (Jeremiah 44:15-27).

“For thus saith the LORD that created the heavens; GOD HIMSELF that formed the earth and made it; HE hath established it, HE created it not in vain, HE formed it to be inhabited: I am the LORD; and there is none else” (Isaiah 45:18).

If you are saved, you have, by the SPIRIT, access to the throne of GOD, Heaven, to see if what I write is true or not. GOD will tell you that HIS WORD is the infallible TRUTH!

The Roman Catholic cult is the unscriptural cult, but they are the ones calling me a cult. Go to my website and see if you are able to find any heresy, untruths. You will NOT be able to find ANY!

GOD has a vineyard or a farm. If you have never owned or worked on a farm or a vineyard, you wouldn’t understand that there are many strict laws or rules you must keep in order to be a successful farmer. If you have a vineyard, you MUST have strong trestles for the vines to grow up and cling to, to climb up out of the dust and dirt, or you won’t have any grapes. Grapes will not crawl on the ground. The trestles must be strong and rigid so that the grapes won’t fall onto the ground. This is the law of growing grapes. This law has not changed for thousands of years, and it will never change. You will follow this law, or you will have no grapes! GOD uses this true analogy in the Bible to show us that the moral law must be kept or nobody will ever be able to enter Heaven. The trellis is the strong moral law, the WORD, which holds us up. GOD is the husbandman, the farmer; we are the branches which bear grapes (John 15:1-8, Isaiah 27:2-3). We will keep the moral law, or we are sinners. To sin is of the devil.5 “He that committeth sin is of the devil; for the devil sinneth from the beginning. For this purpose the SON of GOD was manifested, that HE might destroy the works of the devil. Whosoever is born of GOD doth not commit sin; for HIS seed [CHRIST] remaineth in him: and he cannot sin, because he is born of GOD” (1 John 3:8-9). We need GOD’S moral law by THE HOLY SPIRIT IN US as our rigid trellis to hold us up.

JESUS said, “Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfil. For verily I say unto you, Till Heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled” (Matthew 5:17-18). Some things never change! GOD never changes (Malachi 3:6).6 GOD is the same yesterday, today, and forever! “Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and to day, and for ever” (Hebrews 13:8). No sin shall ever enter Heaven.7 This law will never change. “Be ye Holy; for I am Holy” (Leviticus 11:45, 1 Peter 1:16).8 Don’t ever try to change GOD’S trellises; they never change.

It is true that all of us have sinned, but JESUS came into the world to wash away the sins of the world (but only to those who repent) that we may be clean from sin so we may enter Heaven.9 Repent of your sins now by saying this prayer:

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 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
