Psalm 2 (in the King James Version) asks, “Why do the heathen rage?” According to the Bible, a heathen is anyone other than a Christian (a born-again Christian—not a Catholic). The Webster’s Dictionary states that a heathen is anyone that is not religious. However, this is not true because there are many false religions. False religions would include Catholicism, Islam, Buddhism, Judaism, and Hinduism, to mention a few. The Bible endorses none of these. The Bible endorses only Christianity.1 In the book of Acts 4:12, my statement is confirmed: “Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under Heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.” That name, and this verse, are referring to JESUS only. Therefore, if there is no other name given to men by which you must be saved, then it appears that if you believe in, or on, anyone else, any religion, or any name other than JESUS, you are spinning your wheels and puffing at the wind.
JESUS said to Thomas, and to all of us (by this I mean the whole world), “I am the WAY, the TRUTH, and the LIFE: no man cometh unto the FATHER, but by ME. If ye had known ME, ye should have known MY FATHER also: and from henceforth ye know HIM, and have seen HIM. Philip saith unto HIM, LORD, show us the FATHER, and it sufficeth us. JESUS said unto him, Have I been so long time with you, and yet hast thou not known ME, Philip? he that hath seen ME hath seen the FATHER; and how sayest thou then, Show us the FATHER?” (John 14:6-9).
This is one of the reasons why the Muslim religion is false—because it says that JESUS is not GOD in the flesh of man.2 Muslims say that GOD would never make HIMSELF a baby who needs a diaper change, and they believe that it is not possible for GOD to become a man. JESUS said unto HIS disciples, “With men this is impossible; but with GOD all things are possible” (Matthew 19:26). The Bible says GOD DID BECOME HUMAN FLESH (John 1:1, 14, 1 John 1:1-3).3 Therefore, Islam is a cult, and they are heathen.
The angel from GOD, while speaking to Mary, the mother of JESUS, said, “The HOLY SPIRIT shall come upon thee, and the power of the HIGHEST shall overshadow thee: therefore also that holy thing which shall be born of thee shall be called the SON of GOD. And, behold, thy cousin Elisabeth, she hath also conceived a son in her old age: and this is the sixth month with her, who was called barren. For with GOD nothing shall be impossible. And Mary said, Behold the handmaid of the LORD; be it unto me according to thy word. And the angel departed from her” (Luke 1:35-38).
The angel never told Mary that she would become co-creator with GOD, or that she would never have other children. After the birth of JESUS, she had at least six other children. This is mentioned in Matthew 13:55-56: “Is not this the carpenter’s son? is not HIS mother called Mary? and HIS brothers James, and Joses, and Simon, and Judas? And HIS sisters, are they not all with us?” They were half-brothers and sisters because they had a different father. The FATHER of JESUS was GOD, and the father of the others was Joseph. Mary is not deity or a “perpetual virgin,” as the heathen Vatican’s Roman Catholic church falsely states.4 They are heathens. Catholicism is a false religion, full of fallacy.
Judaism is also a cult and heathen because Jews are taught to reject JESUS as their MESSIAH. The law and GOD’S covenant were given to the Jews, and yet most refuse to believe hundreds of prophecies written in the law, the prophets, and the Psalms, of the MESSIAH.5 “But even unto this day, when Moses is read, the veil is upon their heart. Nevertheless, when it shall turn to the Lord, the veil shall be taken away” (2 Corinthians 3:15-16). So, those who sincerely seek the LORD, rather than blindly follow the false teachings and rituals of man, will find HIM (Jeremiah 29:13).
On top of this, many Jews don’t believe the law of GOD which forbids homosexuality.6 They now have homosexual parades in Israel. Tel Aviv has become a haven for homosexuals, lesbians, fornicators, and adulterers.
Believers in GOD that do all HE says are GOD’S chosen people.7 Throughout history, when Israel disobeyed GOD, HE destroyed them.8 God has given them many opportunities to repent, as HE has the entire world. But Satan has deceived the whole world, as it states in Revelation 12:9.9 Israel believes that if they become a part of today’s political correctness, the deceived people of the world will take it easy on them—and they very well might. But do you think GOD will take it easy on them? No, HE won’t!
It seems like Israel never learns GOD’S lessons. GOD destroyed all the Israeli men in the wilderness (except for Caleb and Joshua) after HE had delivered them from Egypt.10 They were HIS chosen people, but that didn’t mean anything to GOD when they sinned.11 Nor did it help the third of the angels, or their leader Lucifer, who dwelled in Heaven when they sinned.12 They all became heathen, just as all of the deceived people that are in the world today have become heathen. They think that because they say, “JESUS, JESUS,” or “LORD, LORD,” this will save them. But JESUS said, “Not every one that saith unto ME, LORD, LORD, shall enter into the Kingdom of Heaven; but he that doeth the will of MY FATHER which is in Heaven. Many will say to ME in that day, LORD, LORD, have we not prophesied in THY name? and in THY name have cast out devils? and in THY name done many wonderful works? And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from ME, ye that work iniquity.
“Therefore whosoever heareth these sayings of MINE, and doeth them, I will liken him unto a wise man, which built his house upon a rock: And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell not: for it was founded upon a rock [that rock is CHRIST JESUS (1 Corinthians 10:4)]. And every one that heareth these sayings of MINE, and doeth them not, shall be likened unto a foolish man, which built his house upon the sand: And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell: and great was the fall of it. And it came to pass, when JESUS had ended these sayings, the people were astonished at HIS doctrine: For HE taught them as one having authority, and not as the scribes” (Matthew 7:21-29).
The definition of authority is “power.” The heathen have no power other than to lie, steal, and murder. JESUS said in Matthew 28:18-19, “All power is given unto ME in Heaven and in earth. Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the FATHER, and of the SON, and of the HOLY SPIRIT.” Teach them and baptize them into what? Teach them that no man can come unto the FATHER without going through
JESUS, who said HE is the FATHER.13 Teach them that the FATHER is in JESUS, and HE is in the FATHER.
If HE and the FATHER by the HOLY SPIRIT are in us, then we are the temples of GOD.14 If HE is not in us, then are we heathen.15 We will all stand in judgment before the judgment bar of GOD, and if we are heathen, if we are of any false religion, we will not enter the Kingdom of Heaven.16 Then the LORD shall surely say: Depart from ME, you wicked. I never knew you (Matthew 7:23).
So why do the heathen (unsaved) rage? Rage is a furious, uncontrolled anger, a violent force. Let me tell you where anger manifests itself today. It manifests itself primarily against GOD, JESUS, HIS WORDS, and those of us that preach HIS WORDS.17 What will these heathens do when they stand before GOD at HIS judgment bar? “Why do the heathen rage, and the people imagine a vain thing?” Democrats rage against Republicans, and Republicans against Democrats. They are all heathen, so they rage in vain. Their raging is empty, hollow, and void—madness.
“The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take counsel together, against the LORD, and against HIS anointed, saying, Let us break their bands asunder, and cast away their cords from us” (Psalm 2:2-3). In other words, they are saying, “Let us break GOD, JESUS, and HIS people. Let us kill the pastors and ministers or put them in prison. Let us close down their churches and sell their properties. Let us discourage them by taking away their children from them!” Yet the Bible tells us, “HE that sitteth in the Heavens shall laugh: the LORD shall have them in derision” (Psalm 2:4). GOD laughs at them, scorns, and ridicules them. “Then shall HE speak unto them in HIS wrath, and vex them in HIS sore displeasure” (Psalm 2:5).
Billionaires, and anyone who puts anything before God: enjoy yourselves for the few fleeting moments you have left to live! All heathen—this includes you—must stand before GOD, and you are not going to like it. You can’t take your money or your belongings with you. GOD says JESUS will break you with a rod of iron (which is the WORD of GOD [Revelation 19:13-16]). “THOU shalt dash them in pieces like a potter’s vessel. Be wise now therefore, O ye kings: be instructed, ye judges of the earth. Serve the LORD with fear, and rejoice with trembling” (Psalm 2:9-11).
Why should you serve the LORD with fear? It is because you will not be able to avoid judgment, and if you’re not saved, you will spend eternity in Hell. There is no profit in being a heathen. Accept CHRIST into your heart 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 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).
