Because of the constant temptations and seductions of our souls, as well as the daily spiritual war; because GOD has saved us to occupy this earth and bring about the kingdom of Heaven on earth by preaching the gospel, we are at war with Satan.1 We who are Christians must always remember that this world is not our true home! At this time, we are just pilgrims passing through this physical world.2
JESUS says, “Behold, I send you forth as sheep in the midst of wolves: be ye therefore wise as serpents, and harmless as doves. But beware of men: for they will deliver you up to the councils, and they will scourge you in their synagogues [churches]; And ye shall be brought before governors and kings for MY sake, for a testimony against them and the Gentiles” (Matthew 10:16-18).
There will be a time (which is already here) when they will think they’re doing GOD a favor by killing you. JESUS said, “They shall put you out of the synagogues: yea, the time cometh, that whosoever killeth you will think that he doeth GOD service” (John 16:2).
I’m writing this message from jail, while in solitary confinement. I’m being held on false charges to the glory of GOD by the subversive Roman one-world government that doesn’t keep the law of GOD or the law of the United States.3 They hate the WORD, the law of GOD, the U.S. Constitution, and the Bill of Rights. But I trust in the LORD no matter what. King David said this in Psalm 71:7: “I am as a wonder unto many; but THOU art my strong refuge.”
Many people don’t understand how Christians such as myself, being lambs, have made their way through the wolves, through all the persecutions, trials, tribulations, jails, prisons, false accusations, robberies (the government stole all our assets), and have overcome the other cruelties imposed by Rome’s one-world government (who lie by saying that they are the U.S. government). Former (now fallen-away) Christians help them because they are now antichrists.4 The spirit of the devil has them.5
The secret to overcoming and living victoriously to the end is found in the WORD of GOD. Most preachers have never preached it because they are too fearful of the persecution which follows when you warn the world as GOD commands. GOD told Ezekiel and tells us: “Son of man, I have made thee a watchman unto the house of Israel: therefore hear the word at MY mouth, and give them warning from ME. When I say unto the wicked, Thou shalt surely die; and thou givest him not warning, nor speakest to warn the wicked from his wicked way, to save his life; the same wicked man shall die in his iniquity; but his blood will I require at thine hand. Yet if thou warn the wicked, and he turn not from his wickedness, nor from his wicked way, he shall die in his iniquity; but thou hast delivered thy soul.
“Again, When a righteous man doth turn from his righteousness, and commit iniquity, and I lay a stumbling block before him, he shall die: because thou hast not given him warning, he shall die in his sin, and his righteousness which he hath done shall not be remembered; but his blood will I require at thine hand. Nevertheless if thou warn the righteous man, that the righteous sin not, and he doth not sin, he shall surely live, because he is warned; also thou hast delivered thy soul” (Ezekiel 3:17-21).
Following and teaching the whole WORD of GOD is the only way to stay steady in the LORD. For me, my late wife Sue, and my church, these things have been going on since 1964, for almost forty-five years. But we’re still moving ahead and proclaiming the truth to the world. When we follow GOD’S instructions fearlessly, we will face persecution, but GOD blesses us and never leaves us, as HE promised.6 We must speak the whole WORD of GOD. JESUS is that WORD (John 1:1, 14).7
The LORD states, “For whosoever will save his life shall lose it; but whosoever shall lose his life for MY sake and the gospel’s, the same shall save it. For what shall it profit a man, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul? Or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul? Whosoever therefore shall be ashamed of ME and of MY WORDS in this adulterous and sinful generation; of him also shall the SON of man be ashamed, when HE cometh in the glory of HIS FATHER with the holy angels” (Mark 8:35-38).
The book of Revelation warns: “For I testify unto every man that heareth the WORDS of the prophecy of this book, If any man shall add unto these things, GOD shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book: And if any man shall take away from the WORDS of the book of this prophecy, GOD shall take away his part out of the book of Life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book” (Revelation 22:18-19).
In Romans 12:1-2, the Apostle Paul, by the HOLY SPIRIT, tells us, “I beseech you therefore, brethren [Christians], by the mercies of GOD, that ye present your bodies [GOD’S temples8] a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto GOD, which is your reasonable service.” You may ask how you can do this. Here it is: “And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed BY THE RENEWING OF YOUR MIND.” How do you renew your mind? You study and meditate on the WORD of GOD throughout every day.9 Remove everything that distracts you,10 for doing this, and seeking GOD in prayer, is the only way. When we walk in the HOLY SPIRIT, we sit with JESUS the CHRIST, the CREATOR, in heavenly places (Ephesians 2:6)! The commandment is to pray without ceasing if you want to live spiritually without ceasing.11 Talking with our loving, heavenly FATHER is such an easy and wonderful thing to do.
Ephesians 4:23-24 says the same thing: “And be renewed in the spirit of your mind; And that ye put on the new man, which after GOD is created in righteousness and true holiness.” Our old, carnal inner-man is drawn to the lusts of the world, the lust of the eyes and the lust of the flesh;12 the new spiritual man does the opposite. Mingle your spirit constantly, daily with CHRIST, the HOLY SPIRIT, the WORD, and strengthen the life of GOD in you. If you really want to please GOD, be blessed, and live in Heaven forever, then you have to follow GOD’S instructions perfectly!13
JESUS told Satan, as HE teaches us, that “Man shall not live by bread alone, but by EVERY WORD that proceedeth out of the mouth of GOD” (Deuteronomy 8:3, Matthew 4:4). Satan tried to distract the LORD by showing and offering HIM all the riches and attractions of the world. Satan said to HIM, “All these things will I give THEE, if THOU wilt fall down and worship me” (Matthew 4:9).
JESUS knew that if HE wanted to fulfill HIS mission as the sinless blood sacrifice for all humanity and give us eternal life, HE would have to show us how to get it and keep it. Here it is: HE told Satan, “Get thee hence, Satan [and everything in the world]: for it is written, Thou shalt worship the LORD thy GOD, and HIM only shalt thou serve” (Matthew 4:10). This is when the devil will leave you as he left the LORD! Never listen to Satan’s suggestions to sin!14 GOD’S will for us is not to walk “in the counsel of the ungodly [Satan’s one-world government and the mouth of the Beast15], nor stand in the way of sinners, nor sit in the seat of the scornful. But [our] delight is in the law of the LORD; and in HIS law [do we] meditate day and night. And [we] shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that brings forth his fruit in his season; his leaf also shall not wither; and whatsoever [we do] shall prosper” (Psalm 1:1-3).
In Genesis 3:22, the LORD said that if we humans were to eat from the tree of life, we would live forever. If GOD would not have shut down the garden of Eden, sinners would have lived forever. JESUS is the tree of life. Eternal life is found only in HIM. Those who overcome and stand firm to the end will eat from the tree of life in paradise (Revelation 2:7).
If we are always in HIM and HE is in us, then we are HIS body, the corporate body of CHRIST.16 GOD “put all things under HIS feet, and gave HIM to be the head over all things to the church, Which is HIS body, the fulness of HIM that filleth all in all” (Ephesians 1:22-23).
JESUS said that we are lights on candlesticks. We are to let the whole world see our light, which is the SPIRIT of GOD. If we don’t do it with zeal, HE will remove our light, HE will darken our soul, and HE will remove our candlestick (Revelation 2:5). HE will do this because after HE suffered and died for us, and has patiently taught, encouraged, and then reproved us, some still refuse to repent.17 We must quickly repent for all sin and errors made, and daily renew our covenant to walk in holiness with the LORD, or spend eternity in the Lake of Fire with those who have damned their own souls through rejection of, and disobedience to, the WORD of GOD.
In Revelation 2:4-5, JESUS says, “I have somewhat against thee, because thou hast left thy first love. Remember therefore from whence thou art fallen, and repent, and do the first works; or else I will come unto thee quickly, and will remove thy candlestick [light] out of his place, except thou repent.” “So then because thou [Christian] art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spew thee out of MY mouth” (Revelation 3:16).
Another fatal mistake people make is to believe that the law of the Old Testament no longer applies. How ridiculous! JESUS said that HE did not come to destroy the law, but to fulfill it (Matthew 5:17). Only the Old Testament laws of sacrificing animals have been replaced by the true sacrifice of the blood JESUS shed for our sins.18 But the moral law in the Old Testament remains in force eternally. JESUS said, “This generation shall not pass away, till all be fulfilled. Heaven and earth shall pass away: but MY WORDS shall not pass away” (Luke 21:32-33).
The perfect sacrifice of the LAMB of GOD dying on the cross restored our communion with GOD and brought forth the new covenant prophesied by the Prophet Jeremiah: “Behold, the days come, saith the LORD, that I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel, and with the house of Judah: Not according to the covenant that I made with their fathers in the day that I took them by the hand to bring them out of the land of Egypt; which MY covenant they brake, although I was a husband unto them, saith the LORD: But this shall be the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel; After those days, saith the LORD, I will put MY law in their inward parts, and write it in their hearts; and will be their GOD, and they shall be MY people” (Jeremiah 31:31-33).
We must daily live by every WORD of GOD.19 To live is to keep GOD’S commandments,20 and it is for our own good and for the good of others. This is easy when we “sit together in heavenly places in CHRIST JESUS” (Ephesians 2:6). “Greater is HE that is in you, than he that is in the world” (1 John 4:4). “We are more than conquerors through HIM that loved us” (Romans 8:37).
If we are part of the body of CHRIST, we walk in fellowship with the LORD consistently. We know that we are HIS; we know we have life because we keep HIS commandments (1 John 3:24). The love of the law of the SPIRIT of life in CHRIST JESUS is alive in us! The false preachers and prophets will tell you that once you are saved, you will always be saved—even if you continue sinning, but JESUS disagrees, and says that HE will remove your light.21 This is the same as HIM removing your name from the LAMB’S book of Life.
Revelation 20:14-15 says, “And death and Hell were cast into the Lake of Fire. This is the second death. And whosoever was not found written in the Book of Life was cast into the Lake of Fire.” If you’re a Christian and the LORD takes your light away, HE has the same as spit you out of HIS mouth, HIS body.
To disregard GOD’S instructions will take you down into the pit of Hell forever.22 “If ye will not hearken unto ME, and will not do all these commandments; And if ye shall despise MY statutes, or if your soul abhor MY judgments, so that ye will not do all MY commandments, but that ye break MY covenant: I also will do this unto you; I will even appoint over you terror, consumption, and the burning ague [fever], that shall consume the eyes, and cause sorrow of heart: and ye shall sow your seed in vain, for your enemies shall eat it” (Leviticus 26:14-16).
“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 55:7).
Set your mind to put on the mind of CHRIST now, and walk in the blessings, the power, the love, and the peace of the SPIRIT of GOD every day.23 If you are not born again of the SPIRIT, then say this prayer to the LORD now, and really mean it, and you will be saved:
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).
