Scripture Reading: Psalms 105:6-11
In the Answers in Genesis’ book, “One Race, One Blood,” written by Ken Ham, a white, and Charles Ware, a black man in 2010, it makes the statement: “Marriage is a litmus test for racism, usually revealing what we really believe about those from other people groups—and there are a significant number of Christians (particularly in America) who would claim that such ‘interracial’ marriages directly violate God’s principles in the Bible, and should not be allowed” page 124.
This book says that if you are against interracial dating and interracial marriage then you are a racist and fail the litmus test of the bible.
Universal theologians and churches have been spouting this similar lie for decades: All men are descended from the same person. They repeatedly teach that all people of today are descended from Noah; and since the entire world was supposedly destroyed by a world flood, they say that all people of today are also descended from Adam; for that was who Noah was descended from.

Scripture Reading: 2 Timothy 4:3-4
Who is today's Scripture reading about? When is this going to happen or has it already happened? “They shall turn away their ears from the truth” means that they will not listen to the historical, biblical account, but instead they would believe a foolish or improbable story.
Did that happen in Timothy’s day or has it reoccurred over and over down through the centuries? I used to belong to a church that taught that the Laws of God were nailed to the cross of Jesus Christ. That, they said, meant that we do not have to obey His laws because they are now put away--abolished. The only thing that now matters is Jesus and you must believe in Him. I don’t think they considered the consequences of this doctrine!
And the sad thing is that the majority of the so-called Christian world believes what the church I went to in my younger years taught. I later learned that my church had some 33rd degree Freemasons who were the leaders in it.
Our people do not even know who they are really descended from; as they gouge themselves with some ham, bacon, pork chops, pork hot dogs, shrimp, catfish, clams, rabbits, squirrels, turtles, snails, sea gulls, owls, pelicans, storks, camels; plus it says that you shall not eat any animal that dies of its self, but you can “give it to the stranger who is within your gates to eat; or you may sell it to an alien who is not consecrated to your God.” What does that last two provisions mean? Who is the stranger and alien that may eat what an Israelite is commanded not to eat (Deuteronomy 14:21a)? Doesn’t that show that there is a difference between the races in the eyes of God?
In fact, that is what we do. Anything that is an abomination to our God; we do.

Scripture Reading: Luke 14:15-24
You might be wondering what today's Scripture reading, the parable of the great supper, has to do with the sermon title, a #1 hit song from 1963; the year the jews assassinated Camelot. The song was written by Wiener, Gold, Gottlieb and Gluck, which sounds like a jewish law firm. It was sung by Lesley Sue Goldstein, also known as Lesley Gore. Maybe somebody has made the same or similar observations as I have, but I like to think this song has gone unanalyzed until now. One can only probe the subconscious mind of the jew with the assistance of the Holy Spirit to read between the lines. I originally titled this message 'Have You Got Your Invitation Yet?' and then I heard this song in my head in a nostalgic moment for no apparent reason. Now I know why... thank you Lord, it's the perfect antithesis or maybe antichrist. The distinctions between the parable and the song are somewhat uncanny.

Scripture Reading: Ephesians 2:14-15:
The Foursquare Church is continuing the vision of Aimee Semple McPherson to reach out to the Jewish community through the efforts, service, and support of the Foursquare Rabbis Caucus. “It is important at this stage that we carefully nurture the seed of Messianic hope that's been planted here tonight,” said Kurt Reust, a licensing Foursquare Messianic leader from The Rock, a Foursquare Church in Anaheim, California.
This Inaugural Messianic Passover Seder is intended to be the first of many. As the Foursquare Rabbis Caucus grows and matures, it hopes to sponsor similar events in order to build bridges between the Messianic Movement and the Church, bringing together Jew and Gentile to further the Kingdom of God. “For God Himself is our peace, who made both groups into one and broke down the barrier of the dividing wall... that in Himself He might make the two into one new man, thus establishing peace” Ephesians 2:14-15.
How does a nation go from banning all jewish people in their former country to welcoming them with open arms into their churches in the present country? Why do Christians seek the children of the murderers of Jesus Christ, their Savior, by eating a Passover Meal with them? What kind of anti-Christ church is this?

Scripture Reading: John 1:6-9
We've been looking at the sacred cow of full body immersion baptism. Baptism is not really the best word, biblically speaking, for the practice of submerging oneself in a body of water. I think what has happened is cognitive dissonance; when two things are so similar that the original intent is ignored for something else. Our race has suffered from being shortchanged on important principles of biblical events such as the Flood account of Noah being borrowed by non-Adamic cultures. After awhile, every stranger has their 'flood' legend, and the presumption becomes that it was worldwide, rather than local. If baptism is something other than water immersion, then their New Testament exegesis of Old Testament types and shadows cannot be supported. They try to incorporate the parting of the Red Sea as some sort of baptizo on the Israelites, however, if you recall, it was Pharaoh's army that experienced the full body immersion. And it was not Noah and his family that received the full body immersion during the flood. The principle of the original has been lost or is not recognized. Just as God's chosen people don't know who they are, we have a situation today where the wrong people are calling themselves Israel. It behooves us, therefore, to identify the principles of baptism from Genesis to Revelation.

Scripture Reading: Exodus 7:22
In the story of the exodus of the Israelites from Egypt, we have the magicians of Egypt duplicating three of the miracles from God that Moses proclaimed that He would do against the Egyptians. Many Christians are unaware that the magicians of Egypt could do some of the miracles that God could do:
- Rods turned into serpents (Exodus 7:11-13)
- Turning of the water to blood (Exodus 7:22)
- Bringing up of frogs (Exodus 8:7)
In fact, if the Christians reads closely he will see that it just wasn’t just the magicians, but the wise men, sorcerers and the magicians that were called by Pharaoh (Exodus 7:11). What was the difference between them?
- Wise men: men of learning; men who knew the occult arts.
- Sorcerers: men who revealed hidden secrets; to uncover.
- Magicians: men who were decipherers or interpreters of the hieroglyphic writings found in books containing magic formulas that belonged to the Pharaoh.
Exodus 7:11: “Then Pharaoh also called the wise men and the sorcerers: now the magicians of Egypt, they also did in like manner with their enchantments.”
Let’s recreate the scene in our mind: Aaron took his rod and cast it before Pharaoh and his servants and it became a serpent. Then Pharaoh called his wise men, sorcerers and magicians and they also threw their rods on the ground and they became serpents. So we have a tie: we have all of these serpents slithering on the ground: one serpent from Aaron’s rod and the other serpents from Pharaoh’s occult crowd. But it didn’t remain a tie; for Aaron’s rod (serpent) swallowed up their rods (serpents)! This proved that God’s power is greater than the power of the magicians.
But this also shows us that the occult does have some power. They can perform some of these miracles in like manner with their enchantments. The magicians, wise men and sorcerers in the future will bring down fire from heaven and do various kinds of miracles to deceive even the elect. Does this also include the healing of the sick?

It is depressing to live in an age where Christianity is so corrupt that it makes those who know the whole truth of the Bible feel like Elijah. To Elijah, it appeared that he was alone in preaching the whole counsel of God. Today it is the same – most churches do not preach all that is found in the Word of God. How can a Christian identify a false church? Surely, any real Christian attempting to serve God would not want to be in a false church. There are some signs that can indicate if an alleged church is fake. I will start with the least sign to the most sure sign that can help us identify a false church. Sadly, most churches today have all of these problems. But for the sake of study, let us examine each of these characteristics separately.

Scripture Reading: Acts 2:37-41
Researching the subject of baptism has taken many twists and turns in an attempt to discover the truth. In our series, "The Shining Light of Glory", not only were many parallels made between biblical light and water baptism, but also that they were one and the same. This prompted some curiosity as to why there is such a diversity of interpretations as to what baptism really is and where those dogmas come from. After reading assertions about full body immersion-styled baptisms that came from the pagan mystery religions, I began research to prove whether or not this was true, because I didn't want to advocate something that was contrary to the Word of God. However, what I discovered was far from such a simple premise.
Over the expanse of time, the history of baptism has become very convoluted. I dare say that if you ask a dozen Christians what the meaning of baptism is, you'll get a dozen different answers. After half a year, I had traversed, in depth, hundreds of articles, dozens of books and prayerfully seeking what God would have us do. "Seek, and ye shall find" (Mt. 7:7). I think I've found some unconfusing resolves to this issue. It is not my intent to create controversy or jerk anyone's emotional chain.

Scripture Reading: Revelation 18:4
“And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues.”
The Church and its Music
The church began with their singing of the Psalms that are found in the middle of their Bible. The Psalms were put to music and the congregation sang the praises to our God. Over the last several hundreds of years new hymns were written; some good, some bad. But in the last fifty years, something new has slipped into the churches: the singing of rock ‘n’ roll. The church is drawing closer and closer to the world and not to God. The church is serving other gods and not the God of the Bible. The church has learned the way of the heathen.
Colossians 3:16: “Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom; teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your heart to the Lord.”
What exactly is the popular Rock ‘n’ Roll? It was not played in America until about 70 years ago. It first had its beginning in ancient Babylon. In fact its origins are purely religious, being an integral part of orgies and devil worship. This entire system of pagan worship, including the music, eventually filtered down into Egypt.
