Letter to our Friends - July 29, 2022


CHURCH OF JESUS CHRIST ONLINE MINISTRIES
P.O. Box 6458
Spring Hill, FL 34606


Leonard V. Johnson
Founder/Pastor


Dearest Friends in Christ:

Greetings from Spring Hill, Florida.

It’s been a little while since I’ve written to all of you. My wife and I recently took a short vacation to the city of Saint Augustine. We camped at their Campground of America (KOA) with our tiny Retro camper, and lived off the grid (so to speak) for a couple days, enjoying downtown and taking in most of the sites! We truly had a blast!

When I got back to the office, I spent a few weeks recovering! 😂

We published a new PDF online booklet “The Two Resurrections” which we hope will help in clearing away the misunderstandings and the cobwebs of disinformation regarding the glorious promises of the LORD our God – of the resurrection of the dead.

We also have, which hasn’t been out very long, the “Statement of Beliefs of the Church of Jesus Christ Online Ministries” – and I might add, of our affiliated churches. A 33-page online PDF booklet that meticulously goes over and through the 40 listed beliefs of our ministry. At this moment in time, because of our financial situation, we only have these booklets online.

Another free no-obligation online PDF booklet in relation to the “lost” tribes of the house of Israel is “God’s Promises To Abraham.” A 116-page transcription of a seven-part series of sermons given by Minister Michael C. Garrett of the Owensboro Church of Jesus Christ by the same title.

Continuing Censorship



This week we posted a reminder on our Facebook pages that censorship is continuing with certain liberal social media platforms such as Facebook and YouTube. In the sermon “’ This is a rebellious people!’” I speak of this “BLATANT CENSORSHIP: THE GREAT YOUTUBE PURGE”! As I’m sure you are aware, we have multiple social media platforms such as BitChute, and UGETube – which describe themselves as offering “freedom of expression.”

The Apostle Paul has warned us of non-Christians “who suppress the truth in unrighteousness” – Romans 1:18. And, certainly, in this 21st century, we have been witness to a great many ‘Big Tech’ organizations doing just this!

He also admonished his “beloved son” Timothy – which Timothy served as Paul’s representative to several of the churches - as well as all of us dear brethren, to “Preach the word! Be ready in season and out of season. Convince, rebuke, exhort, with all longsuffering and teaching.” BECAUSE –

“ … the time will come when they [the secular world in which we live in] will not endure sound doctrine.” – 2 Timothy 2, 3.

Now, while our YouTube channels have not censored us recently (to my knowledge), in viewership the Church of Jesus Christ Online Ministries’ other conservative video hosting channels, such as BitChute and UGETube receive far greater viewership than our YouTube channel.

Our Lord Jesus Christ says that true Christians are to “be wise as serpents and harmless as doves. But BEWARE of men, for they will deliver [or, even try and deliver you up] to councils [including a council of a church organization] and scourge [or try and embarrass] you in their synagogues.” – Matthew 10:16-17. And I myself can certainly attest to our Lord Jesus’ warning!

Yes. We try to take proper precautions in this anti-TRUTH OF GOD world and strive to do the will of the LORD our God! – cf. Matthew 6:10.

Certainly, these types of “purges” and suspensions from YouTube are not new, however, we are seeing an even greater increase of electronic social-media censorship against ANYONE who does not agree with the mainstream media and/or those who have conservative views and teachings of God’s living word – the Holy Bible. Or, for that matter, those who quote God’s word!

Also, Google, which owns YouTube, has changed its search parameters in a great many areas to reduce the possibility of certain views or beliefs from showing up on the first page of their search engine query. In our view, this has greatly hurt the Church of Jesus Christ Online Ministries and our affiliated churches’ YouTube channels.

Now, I say this not so that our people should take some kind of political action – but I say this to witness, announce, and warn our people that Authoritarianism Can Happen Again! – even in a so-called “free” society. And that it will take place more and more as the ‘end of this age’ ends. The reality is – Internet censorship was prophesied to occur in this end-time –
“’ Behold, the days are coming,’ says the Lord GOD, ‘That I will send a famine on the land, Not a famine of bread, Nor a thirst for water, But of HEARING the words of the LORD. They shall wander from sea to sea, And from north to east; They shall run to and fro, seeking the word of the LORD, But shall not find it’” – Amos 8:11-12.
Notice that God’s living word tells that a time is coming when the word of the LORD will not be found – worldwide. Truly, in this 21st-century world, the Internet is accessed by people of every continent, country, nation, province, and state – thus, some type of Internet restriction/suspension/ or removal is coming! And in a few nations, it is already here – i.e. North Korea, China, Libya, and South Africa.

Truly, the United States of America no longer has the type of “freedom of religion” or “freedom of speech” that our Founding Fathers wanted. Now, while YouTube, Facebook, and Twitter are not part of the US government, these private entities DO NOT support God or His teachings.

Having and following the views and teachings of God the Father and Jesus Christ as written in Their living word is certainly becoming more problematic in the United States of America!

Sadly, there is soon-coming a day when the US government, as well as various private entities, will stop our efforts on the Internet altogether.

We should consider the words of our God –

“Therefore the prudent keep silent at that time, For it is an evil time” – Amos 5:13.

I had announced once to my unconverted wife just what I was teaching for an upcoming Sabbath sermon, “Are The Dead In Heaven?” And she responded, “You just keep pushing their buttons, don’t you!?” I answered, “Someone needs to, and we appear to be the only ministries that are doing so!” However, God’s living wisdom tells us that even then – during this soon-coming ‘evil time’ – those that are doing nothing wrong will need to be silent for safety’s sake.

At this time, while it is still ‘day’ we must, like what the prophet Isaiah was told, - “’ CRY ALOUD, SPARE NOT; Lift up your voice like a trumpet; Tell My people their transgression, And the house of Jacob their sins’” – Isaiah 58:1.

This is exactly what we in the Church of Jesus Christ Online Ministries are doing – along with our affiliated churches!

DISINGENUOUS PROPAGANDA!


We are denouncing not only the sins of God’s people – see Jeremiah 50:6-7; Luke 15:3-7; Matthew 10:6 – but warning and telling of the sins of the house of Jacob (the United States of America, the United Kingdom, and her Commonwealth of Nations, Australia, and New Zealand, Canada), and also of this world’s false religion – politics.

Notice what Minister Michael C. Garrett has spoken of (and will continue to speak of) – here are seven of his messages:
Notice what Minister Guy C. Lamar of The Independent Christian Church of God has spoken of (and will continue to speak of) – here are seven of his messages:
Also, notice what we here at the Church of Jesus Christ Online Ministries have spoken of (and will continue to) speak of in this evil age known as this 21st century –
There are a great many in and outside the US government who have devious plans and are watching the Internet with ever-more plans on censorship of material they will someday completely silence.

Notice this from God’s living word –

“Hear my voice, O God, in my meditation; Preserve my life from fear of the enemy. Hide me from the secret plots of the wicked, From the rebellion of the workers of iniquity, Who sharpen their tongue like a sword, And bend their bows to shoot their arrows – bitter words, That they may shoot in secret at the blameless; Suddenly they shoot at him and do not fear.

They encourage themselves in an evil matter; They talk of laying snares secretly; They say, ‘Who will see them?’ They devise iniquities: ‘We have perfected a shrewd scheme.’ Both inward thought and the heart of man are deep” – Psalms 64:1-6.

So, if you think that if you’ve done nothing wrong there is nothing to fear from surveillance, consider that many in the US government consider that NOT supporting the LGBTQ+ agenda, or homosexual “marriage,” etc. are “enemies of the state.” Also, it has been said, that people who believe in a Millennial Reign of Jesus Christ should not be trusted and should be considered a potential terrorist!

Some World News In Relation To Biblical Prophecy

Some researchers in Israel and Russia have discovered that Vitamin D can massively reduce death attributed to COVID-19! (See: WND: Vitamin D deficiency raises risk of death from COVID by 50%’).

Truly, there are other things – other than vaccines, masks, and government-mandated lockdowns – which help our immune system deal with things like COVID-19. And, this is something that organizations such as WHO, CDC, along with Big Tech and social media platforms should have been telling our peoples for a long time now.

The positive benefits of Vitamin D related to COVID-19 have been known for at least a couple of years!

God’s living eternal word warns us –

“For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who suppress the truth in unrighteousness, 19) because what may be known of God is manifest in them, for God has shown it to them.” – Romans 1:18-19.

“Professing to be wise, they became fools, 23 and changed the glory of the incorruptible God into an image made like corruptible man.” – Romans 1:22-23.

That is certainly something that the mainstream media and many others have done this year! Instead, they DENOUNCE that Bill Gates ever said that the population of the world needs to be reduced! And they back up their statement with “As discussed in a 21 November 2011 Forbes cover story profiling the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, reducing population growth has always been integral to their stated mission.” 1 Did they just make a deflection!? Instead of taking natural nutritional and other immune-boosting ideas seriously, they push HARD their fear and vaccine agenda!

Instead, according to some, “the COVID-19 vaccines appear to be causing a global health disaster.” 2

And in Russian news – the Russian government along with other BRICS nations are continuing to look at ways to completely bypass the US dollar! (See: United States Gold Bureau – Is BRICS A Threat to the Dollar?’).

We have certainly – through God’s living word; His prophecies – spoken of this at great length before.

The ever-increasing US debt – a whopping $30.7 TRILLION – along with the United States of America weaponizing the US dollar are pushing nations to figure out how to completely drop the US dollar!

Russia, China, and much of Europe have been increasing their gold supply – which we have also spoken of this numerous times. And certainly, because the majority of the world has its international trade tied in with the US dollar when the unbacked US dollar finally does completely collapse, the nations will want something with at least a claimed backing! Already, according to a Fox News 2015 article, “U.S. Roads, Bridges Being Sold To Foreign Companies” “Few people,” the report says, “know that the tolls from the U.S. side of the tunnel between Detroit and Windsor, Canada, go to a subsidiary of an Australian company — which also owns a bridge in Alabama.”

After the US dollar has completely collapsed, God’s living word shows us that a United Europe will dominate international trade and finance, and this will certainly involve gold supply – cf. Daniel 7:37-43; Revelation 18.

Concluding Comments

The Apostle Paul admonishes us:
“Do not be unequally yoked together with unbelievers. For what fellowship has righteousness with lawlessness? And what communion has light with darkness? And what accord has Christ [our holy Messiah] with Belial [another name for Satan the devil]? Or what part has a believer [a true Christian] with an unbeliever?

And what agreement has the temple of God [the spiritually begotten children of God] WITH IDOLS?”
And I ask the question – can celebrities become an idol to God’s elect!? (See: Matthew 24:24).

“For you are the temple of the living God.

As God has said: ‘I will dwell in them And walk among them. I will be their God, And they shall be My people.’
Therefore ‘COME OUT FROM AMONG THEM And BE SEPARATE, says the Lord. Do not touch what is unclean, And I will receive you.’ ‘I will be a Father to you, And you shall be My sons and daughters, Says the LORD Almighty’” – 2 Corinthians 6:14-18.
God the Father and Jesus Christ are saying this to us NOW!

Indeed, friends, many celebrities can do great things for their people, their country, and individuals. Yet, it is clear that Christians are not to represent God with icons or idols!

The following verses concern Paul and his writings on this subject:
“Now while Paul waited for them at Athens, his spirit was provoked within him when he saw that the city was given over to idols …”
And indeed an idol can be defined as a worshipping of the gifts in place of the Gift Giver Himself. An object, a job, our family, a minister, or celebrity, etc.
“ … Then Paul stood in the midst of the Areopagus and said, … ‘God, who made the world and everything in it, since He is Lord of heaven and earth, does not dwell in temples made with hands. Nor is He worshiped with men’s hands, as though He needed anything, since He gives to all life, breath, and all things.’” – Acts 17:16, 22, 24-25.

“Professing to be wise, they became fools, and changed the glory of the incorruptible God into an image made like corruptible man …” – Romans 1:22-23.

“But now I have written to you not to keep company with anyone named a brother, who is … an idolater … - not even to eat with such a person” – 1 Corinthians 5:11.

“Do you not know that … idolaters … will inherit the kingdom of God” – 1 Corinthians 6:9, 10.

“And do not become idolaters as were some of them … Therefore, my beloved, flee from idolatry” – 1 Corinthians 10:7, 14.

“Therefore put to death your members … covetousness, which is idolatry” – Colossians 3:5.
Friends, Paul is crystal clear, true Christians do not have idols, and there are to be NONE within the Church of God. Idolatry is the work of the flesh, and true Christians are to turn from any idols to the living God.

In deep gratitude and love, in Jesus' name,

Commentary: Becoming a God


by Leonard V. Johnson


In this week’s sermon, which is entitled, "Future Rulership With Christ," we state something that you're probably going to think is mighty bold to preach. “That you will be (God willing) a holy member of the Family of God, WORTHY OF WORSHIP.” Have you ever sat down and contemplated this!? It’s a bold statement, isn’t it!?

The reason that I bring this up is that I too in my youth thought this was a mighty bold statement. “Oh,” I would think, “the audacity! The unmitigated gall!” Since that time, I have grown substantially in the loving grace and knowledge of the Eternal God.

I once had a friend that actually said to me when I explained this fact to him, “What right do we humans have to be a god!? What makes us better than the original apostles!?” He had been a pastor with the Open Bible Churches (the same organization as Jimmy Swaggart's)He just simply didn’t hear what God’s Spirit says. Even being converted, your immediate response might be, “Saying such a thing is just not right!”

Well, you’re not alone. Our Lord Jesus Christ was confronted with this very thing! With all Authority, boldly proclaiming to the local religious folks from the Book of Psalms, “ ..’ I said, ‘You are gods’ …If He [the LORD God] called them gods, to whom the word of God came (and Scripture cannot be broken) 36) do you say to Him [the LORD God] whom the Father sanctified and sent into the world, ‘You are blaspheming,’ because I said, ‘I AM the Son of God’?” – John 10:30-38. The TRUTH OF GOD right there in black and white (and red)! But for most people of this world, it just passes them by. They have no idea what their future can be. You know, in Romans 8 – you read through there – you hear phrases like, “sons of God,” and “the Spirit of sonship,” and “children of God.” You can go through Galatians 3 and hear, “children of God … heirs according to the promise.” There are many more such Scriptures – also Hebrews 2:9-11 – talking about Jesus Christ and saying, “bringing many sons into glory.” And, 1 John 3:1-2 – the people of the world do not understand what you are about to read – but many of you reading this have heard it before, and you do understand it! I just hope that we always deeply appreciate it! ’ I know your works, tribulation, and poverty [and this is for you dear brethren] (but you are rich); and I know the blasphemy of those who say they are Jews (and indeed, even spiritual children of Abraham, chosen people] and are not but are a synagogue [because there are an unnumerable amount!] of Satan. … Indeed I will make those of the synagogue of Satan, who say they are Jews [spiritual children of Abraham] and are not, but lie – indeed I will make them come AND WORSHIP BEFORE YOUR FEET, and to know that I have loved you.’ – Revelation 2:9; 3:9.

This bold TRUTH OF GOD of becoming a God seemed so unacceptable to me at first when I heard it over forty-one years ago! I, too, thought it sounded blasphemous. Oftentimes people who are not converted seem to run in where “angels fear to tread” – cf. Hebrews 4:16. It is actually an IMPORTANT subject, and one from which we can learn a great deal.

Most people will apply human reasoning to arrive at doctrine or truth – which is an unsound approach to learning God’s living Word, Truth, and ultimate Plan. God boldly says that we (again, God willing) will become God in many places in His living word!

Right from the beginning, the God family said, “’ Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness.’” – Genesis 1:26. All of God’s begotten children have the glorious promise, the hope of being brought “unto glory.”

Yet, do not dismiss this IMPORTANT bold statement, “’ WORTHY OF WORSHIP’” for the sake of its improper approach. Because truly God’s living word teaches us to worship God alone – and no other (cf. Matthew 4:10; John 4:24; Revelation 19:10). Certainly, even my friend was thinking this –

“ … ‘ Is there a God besides Me? Indeed there is no other Rock; I know not one.’” – Isaiah 44:8.

“’ I AM the LORD, and there is no other; There is no God besides Me. … Look to Me, and be saved, All you ends of the earth! For I AM God, and there is no other.’” – Isaiah 45:5, 22.

I’m certain that a great many in this world will call us heretics – “That ministry and its affiliated churches are teaching that humans can become God!”

How would you respond to them!? God the Father will always be our Heavenly Father, in the way that our earthly father will always be our father. A son is not greater than his father. Even our Lord Jesus says, “ … ‘for My Father is greater than I.’ – John 14:28. Would it lessen our Father God’s position to add multiple trillions to His Holy Family!?

God is called our Father. He is the Head of the God Family which is called God. There is no other Father besides Him. Truly, human beings who have become converted are His begotten children. We will (God willing), go on to become BORN children into the glorious Holy Family of God.

Reason this: was your earthly father’s position as the head of the household lessened because you were born!? Of course not! His position was blessed. His family increased. Rather than a lessening to your father’s position, your birth was cause for a celebration – and exceeding joy!

PRAISE FOREVER OUR MIGHTY GOD! When our Heavenly Father has first thousands upon thousands, and then millions and trillions of born children added to His Family, added to His glorious Son Jesus Christ, He will have even that many more children of equal kind who will FOR ALL ETERNITY worship and adore, and look up to Him with reverent love, respect, and fear as Father of the God Family!

O’ brethren, once properly understood, this glorious TRUTH OF GOD compliments our Holy Father and our Holy Elder Brother and Savior!

So, there is no unfairness in this glorious doctrine of truth, but rather, a time of great celebration and exceeding joy! □

The Two Resurrections (Booklet)


Greetings Everyone! The Church of Jesus Christ Online Ministries and our affiliated churches are pleased to bring you our latest free no-obligation online PDF booklet "The Two Resurrections"

TODAY, Christianity is divided as never before into literally hundreds of different sects, divisions, and denominations - with a plethora of interpretations concerning life, death, the hereafter, and the resurrections. But why should there be so many different ideas regarding God's clear and plain TRUTH!?

Here is a DIRECT LINK to this AMAZING EYE-OPENING FREE PDF BOOKLET - "The Two Resurrections"


Commentary: God Has An Intense Hatred For Homosexuality


 by Guy LaMar



It’s an act of rebellion AGAINST God.

It’s an act AGAINST His design.

The living word of the Eternal God makes it abundantly clear that there is an outcome awaiting those who practice this lifestyle that is fitting for their actions.

“’ You SHALL NOT lie with a male as with a woman. IT IS AN ABOMINATION.’” – Leviticus 18:22.

“’ If a man lies with a male as he lies with a woman, both of them HAVE COMMITTED AN ABOMINATION. They shall surely be put to death. Their blood shall be upon them.’” – Leviticus 20:13.

“Do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? DO NOT BE DECEIVED. Neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, NOR HOMOSEXUALS,  NOR SODOMITES, 10) nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners will inherit the kingdom of God.

11) And such were some of you. But you were washed, but you were sanctified, but you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus and by the Spirit of our God.” – 1 Corinthians 6:9-11.

“For this reason God gave them up to vile passions. For even their women exchanged the natural use for what is AGAINST NATURE. 27) Likewise also the men, leaving the NATURAL USE of the woman, burned in their lust for one another, men with men committing WHAT IS SHAMEFUL, and RECEIVING IN THEMSELVES THE PENALTY OF THEIR ERROR WHICH WAS DUE.” – Romans 1:26-27.

“But we know that the Law is good if one uses it lawfully, 9) knowing this: that the Law is not made for the righteous person, but for the lawless and insubordinate, for the ungodly and for sinners, for the unholy and profane, for the murderers of mothers, for manslayers, 10) for FORNICATORS, for SODOMITES, for kidnappers, for liars, for perjurers, and if there is any other thing that is contrary to SOUND DOCTRINE.” – 1 Timothy 1:8-10.

Now is it considered “HATE” to preach against this lifestyle that the LORD our God WARNS against – that will bring destruction to those who embrace it!?

No, of course not!

It’s LOVE to WARN our peoples against such things that can cause grave harm and doom.

God intensely HATES the very act of homosexuality and lesbianism.

It is disgusting to God!

There is absolutely NO SUCH THING as a queer Christian!

Certainly, if a person has repented from such a lifestyle then they are no longer living in that sin. No more so than anyone else who repented from any other sin.

Yet, if they continue to practice that sin, then they clearly are disqualified from being a true Christian.

So says our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ!

’ If you love Me [‘If you are loyal to Me’], keep My commandments.’ – John 14:15.

“For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, these are [children] of God.” – Romans 8:14.

True Christians are to strive to ’ be perfect, just as your Father in heaven is perfect.’ – Matthew 5:48.

By the Democrats supporting the LGBTQ+ agenda, it’s clear which god they serve.

The answer can be found in 2nd Corinthians 4:4!

This claim by the Biden-Harris Administration that the Trump-Pence Administration promoted “hate speech” because they stood by the living word of God and were against honoring this LGBTQ+ agenda is asinine!

If ANYONE stands by the Democratic Party then they – in essence – support Satan the Devil’s causes!

Not that the Republican Party is good in all areas. Yet, clearly, this position by the Democrats in their support of something which Satan the Devil has helped influence mankind with – which equates to homosexuality and lesbianism – is something that will help lead to the utter destruction of America!

Now, not everyone is being called by Father God to understand in this age. Truly, our peoples will be healed of this grievous issue in the glorious World Tomorrow!

Friends, NO ONE CAN WALK WITH GOD WHILE HOLDING HANDS WITH THE DEVIL!

It’s God’s Way or Satan the Devil’s way. There is no in-between! Capiche!?

Make no mistake, 99% or more of the homosexuals and lesbians in the United States of America (which actually only make up 2% to 3% of the USA’s population who identifies as being a part of the LGBTQ+ community) ARE TODAY'S DEMOCRATS!

The political party which is promoting this heinous abomination is the Democratic Party!

That is just the solid true facts!

No true Christian would EVER support this lifestyle! □

The Workmen of God


 


Greetings Everyone! Sabbath service was a real good one. I’m back to preaching after a couple of Sabbath’s away due to Covid-19.

This week’s Message is entitled “Our Outcome.”

The sermon may not be up on our YouTube channel until tomorrow or this Monday, due to uploading issues and internet service issues. My computer is running slower than normal.

Now, I realize that as far as my life goes, THIS is what I was put on Earth to do. To preach the glorious Message of God – the Word of God, the Truth of God, and the ultimate Plan of God. To live by the will of God!

I’ve also come to realize that many people from my past who knew me before my conversion are now the same people that truly DO NOT know me. Even when it comes to some within my own family.

Almighty God is MORE IMPORTANT to me than ANYTHING or ANYONE in my life!

LIVING by the CODE of a true Christian lifestyle is the Way of life for me until I take my last breath in this life.

Delighting (LOVING) God’s holy and righteous LAW – His Way – is truly the way to get close to Father God and our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. It’s showing reverent fear, respect, honor, and love for God. It’s showing God that we want to please Him. We want to be close to Him. To belong to Him.

It’s what makes me tick.

It’s what fulfills my life.

Although I am by no means at all that good of a speaker, and certainly not that much to look at, I am a man of limits. I’m sure that my personality doesn’t gee-and-haw with most. My style may be boring and dull to many. But, as long as I live I’m not changing my spots or colours as to who I am as a true Christian. I’m not going to be anything more than I am. Which is a simple man with simple ways who loves God the Father and our Lord Jesus and desires to share God’s living word in my old-fashioned way – which may be boring to several.

In my heart of hearts, my joy and love is to SHARE GOD’S LIVING TRUTH!

To HELP OTHERS!

To SEE JOY IN OTHERS brings joy to me.

Nothing compares to the reward of witnessing someone come to understanding and have passion for God.

To witness people who want to OBEY God and live for God.

Now, although it’s exceedingly rare to run into truly Holy Spirit-led people - when I do, they shine like the brightness of the sun.

Thankfully, most of my friends on my Facebook page are Holy Spirit-led people!

This past Sabbath I had a whole lot of self-reflection. I realized that I have grown a whole lot in the glorious Spirit of God over just the last few years. I hope and pray to grow even greater in God’s living grace, truth, and understanding every day!

My joy is being around people with God’s Spirit, who love God and are on the same spiritual path – it is so exceedingly thrilling to me!

I’m finding it more difficult to be around argumentative wishy-washy types who claim that they are a “Christian.”

Christian means follower of Christ. It’s someone who OBEYS CHRIST JESUS. Someone who properly understands that the Old Testament is just as much a part of God’s living truth as the New Testament!

The New Testament brings God’s living word to spiritual Light!

One’s spirit is now able to be guided by God’s Spirit. However, during the Old Testament people had to be constantly reminded to keep the holy Law of God. Now, with God’s Spirit within us, His holy and immutable, and relevant Law is ingrained in our hearts and mind.

When I witness someone who claims to be a “Christian,” and yet embraces and accepts things that God abhors, such as homosexuality and the consumption of pig meat, I find it highly difficult to even be around them. I have shown many throughout the years the PLAIN TRUTH of God’s living word in regards to the topics they continue to DISOBEY God with. They continue not to accept God’s living word because it may mean that they would have to change and they would have to do away with their likes and lusts.

The people who are willingly ignorant are the sort of people that I have found I do not want to be in an audience with. People who REFUSE to accept the undeniable TRUTH of God and who replace it with a bunch of fluff of WORLDLY religious ideas and traditions. It is so taxing to my nerves to even be around and listen to such nonsense.

Through God’s living Spirit, I’m beginning to understand just how the 20th Century Church of God had become so exclusive.

But, brethren, we MUST be a light unto the WORLD! To be a WARNING and WITNESS to them! Truly, it may be us, brethren, that God is using to help call out of this world towards the REAL and LIVING JESUS CHRIST!

We are the workmen of God.

We all, brethren, have a job to do in the service of the LORD our God. We all have ministry work to do in the service of the LORD our God!

God’s living word is clear that women are to minister to other women.

Our Christian duty is NOT just a one-day-a-week job. IT IS EVERY DAY! EVERY MOMENT OF OUR LIFE! To be a Light unto others.

The very word “ministry” is to be a servant of God. And we all need to be servants of the LORD our God.

Truly, the JOY of being around God’s true called out ones is the greatest happiness I find when it comes to being around people.

Thankfully God is allowing my life’s steps to run into people of this world, and I can see a doorway that is open to reaching them by giving a good example. Having Christ Jesus in me being seen by them.

PRAISE JESUS CHRIST’S HOLY NAME for His PERFECT PLAN in the redemption of all mankind!

PRAISE THE ETERNAL GOD for this HOLY DAY! His glorious and wonderful Sabbath rest. I so greatly pray the rest of this world could see what we see in God’s TRUE PLAN and just how the Holy Days along with the weekly Sabbath all show us His ultimate Plan!

Truly, all shall see in due time.

MAY THY KINGDOM COME SOON LORD JESUS! □

Commentary: A Need For Strong Leadersip

by Guy LaMar



I’ve been watching a few messages from various church groups splintered from the Church of God.

And, this is just my personal observation.

I am not too keen on what I am seeing from some.

There are a few of the groups within these same organizations that do have some good strong ministers, and also a few with some weak ministers.

The older ministers appear more strong while the younger ministers appear more liberal.

Some appear too spooked in saying anything that may offend.

Now, I’ll let you know something about me – I DO NOT like weakness. In fact, I frankly HATE it!

And, I’m not talking about being mean here. I’m talking about not standing against what is clearly WRONG!

There are too many people walking around with very fragile feelings.

Leaders in the churches are trying to cater to the more spoiled. I DO NOT like this.

I raised my sons with strict sternness. I NEVER gave them a 2nd warning.

And they turned out just fine and dandy. No matter what – they have always shown me respect.

And to this day I still offer my guidance. They may not always agree with it, but they listen and grant that respect.

If they don’t agree then that just proves that they have a lot more growing to do … hahaha! 😆

But seriously, the point is, some of the churches need to tighten up their belts and STOP being so weak!

Brethren, I can clearly see various Church of God groups falling into a trap of liberalism.

And this problem begins at the top – with the church leadership.

Without giving out any names, I can certainly think of FOUR groups where the church leadership is failing terribly by catering to the spoiled. And, I can think of TWO groups who are like a Cult of Idolatry because of their leadership.

One group comes to mind where the church “head honcho” just loves to brag himself up as an important figure to where he is the “main” guy among this world’s population! And then there’s another group in which its leader speaks more about himself than anything else!

And, I can think of another group that has literally wrapped everything around Right-Wing political views. And they actually believe they are God’s Church! It’s truly insane!

There are TWO groups that come to mind who have very grounded leadership guiding them. The elders of these groups stay very close to the “Trunk of the Tree” – the spiritual tree.

Through the years I have spoken to many within various churches of God and it’s actually becoming much harder to find a more balanced group.

There are also some groups that embrace Hebrew names and believe that they are being righteous for doing so.

Brethren, these so-called “sacred name” groups NEED to block me, I am not going to help promote you. They are people who get off on these crazy calendars or make them up each year. They need not be here! The Independent Christian Church of God and our affiliated churches will not agree with them!

Oh my, how there are so many groups out there completely off course!

Brethren, we NEED to get back to the SOUND and STRONG footing of the living Word of God, the Truth of God, and the Plan of God!

We NEED to stay in the living word of God – the Holy Bible – on matters that matter!

Not political junk that comes and goes.

Not the spewing of hatred concerning political leaders.

Not whinny storytellers who only self-glorify.

We NEED strong solid good leadership with common sense and intellectual thinking.

For crying out loud, since the ministry is led by men, the men NEED to be STRONGER and more STERN in making sure that the living truth of God stays solid!

When a person comes into a church and begins to try and get their own agenda going, then that is when the leadership's foot needs to be implemented to that person's derrière!

These fluffy churches which are all dramatic and like to get all showy, they are all based upon taking out intellectual reasoning and replacing it with a bunch of fluffy gobbledygook! □

A More Clear Understanding of God’s Living TRUTH


 

by Guy LaMar


SEVERAL years ago I bought a Faithful Version with Commentary of the Holy Bible and gave it to an old minister. Well, that old minister scoffed at this version, claiming that the King James Version was the best.

UNTIL – he actually OPENED IT UP and began reading it!

Through his studies with the Faithful Version with Commentary of the Holy Bible In Its Original Order, he was in awe of what he had discovered in the Holy Bible!

He announced – of those who are of the true faith of God, who truly commit themselves to God, that this version of the Holy Bible was hands down the extreme best version on the market!

The Commentary within this version put all of God’s living TRUTH in clear and plain understanding. There is no room for debate against God’s living TRUTH once this version of the Bible is opened and read.

Any true Christian within God’s TRUE CHURCH needs to get this version of the Holy Bible – and use it!

It is the best spiritual benefit that one could ask for, to go along with the glorious Holy Spirit working within.

The Holy Bible In Its Original Canonical Order was in seven divisions –

  1. The Law (Pentateuch)
  2. The Prophets
  3. The Writings
  4. The Gospels (and Acts)
  5. The General Epistles
  6. Paul’s Epistles
  7. Revelation
I myself bought over 100 of these lamb-skinned covered Holy Bibles at a great financial cost and gifted them out to people who I believe would actually read it and embrace it. I gifted it to people that I love.

Sadly, nearly none – except a very few – even use this version. They just wanted a free gift, something to have!? Some, nearly demanded that I give them one! I gifted them out to some who were not even in the Church of God or even of the faith. Still, they never use this version!

Well, all I can say is that the LORD our God saw what I was trying to do. I tried to promote His living word. I tried to get people to care enough. Sadly, the nature of mankind often outweighs the true commitment of man to serve the Eternal One.

Sadly, many people are far more loyal to their church-titled versions of the Bible and of being led by their church guru, becoming too stiff-necked to pay attention to a more clear and plain understanding of God’s living TRUTH. Maybe because the credit wouldn’t fall on their leader!?

Our peoples can become so ridiculous when it comes to their religion!

TO THIS DAY I am amazed how people will willingly REPLACE our Lord Jesus Christ with a man, and claim that man (or woman) is MORE IMPORTANT than JESUS CHRIST!!

They say, “We follow Pope Francis as he preaches Jesus!” Or, “We follow Pope Francis as he interprets Jesus.” Or, “We follow Herbert W Armstrong as he preached Jesus!” Or, “We follow Mark Armstrong as he interprets Jesus!”

Brethren, of such things, are blasphemous and super dangerous! The apostle Paul did say, “Be ye followers of me, even as I also am of Christ” – 1 Corinthians 11:1, KJV.

But the part most don’t get is the part where he said, “as I ALSO IMITATE CHRIST.”NKJV.

Meaning: WATCH HIM in his way of following JESUS CHRIST!

What did the apostle Paul preach!?

Our Lord and Savior JESUS CHRIST!

Our main focus should ALWAYS be on JESUS CHRIST!

Sadly, there is a church whose leader is not even an ordained minister – and his flock follows him. And all he does is SPEW hatred and RIGHT-WING political ramblings. Yet, because the leader's father and grandfather were both preachers, the IDOL WORSHIPERS loyally follow this leader. Sadly, they are a group of “yes-men.” He can do no wrong in their eyes. They clearly DO NOT have the fruits of God’s Spirit by following after him. He refuses to (or cannot) write or say the holy name JESUS CHRIST!

Yes, my brethren, the “Boob-Tube” can create many idols. People get obsessed with their idols and they reject Satan the Devil – that is at work through their idols.

With the likes of Kenneth Copeland, Benny Hinn, Steven Furtick, Joyce Meyer, and a great many more!

They are ALL WORKERS OF SATAN THE DEVIL used by him to deceive people! And sadly, millions upon millions fall hook line, and sinker for such people. Because “until this day the same veil remains unlifted …”

Make no mistake – we are either STRICT in our manner of worship of God or we DO NOT have God in our lives.

The majority have a fake god in their lives instead!

Anyone that goes along with the Sunday-keepers is going along with the great deceiver – Satan the Devil.

Now, God is no respecter of persons! And if you think that you can bluff God then you are a mere fool! GOD IS NOT GOING TO ACCEPT INTERTWINING HIS TRUTH WITH LIES!

Making your religion fluffy and sweet to fit your emotions is meaningless. We either get SERIOUS MINDED about God’s living truth and get STRICT with God’s living truth or we are NOT God’s begotten children!

Brethren, God has allowed us advanced knowledge towards these end-times. We had better throw away our petty differences and GET ON BOARD with God’s living truth while there is still time.

If we don’t like a true minister of God because his presentation is boring, then that is foolishness. If we don’t like a true minister of God because we think he is too rude or too uptight then we are being foolish.

Friends, READ your Bible – JESUS was very strict and could be rude towards those who didn’t like what He had to say. He didn’t hold back from telling it like it was.

He called those types of people, swine, snakes, and dogs.

He says,’ Hypocrites! Well did Isaiah prophesy about you, saying: ‘These people draw near to Me with their mouth, And honor Me with their lips, But their heart is far from Me.’” In vain do people worship Him teaching lies such as Sunday-keeping over the holy Sabbath!

God does not respect anyone’s fluffy and sweet religion and substitute ideas.

We are either for God or we are for some fluffy made-up god!

Another false minister tried ATTACKING the works of a true minister of God over a book. Because the book had “too many pages” for the false minister, he attacked the book. This false minister was caught in a lie (on camera) claiming things that the book never said.

We NEED TO BE VERY CAREFUL about who we follow in way of those who teach God’s word. We may lose our salvation by allowing idols to misguide us.

The Holy Bible In Its Original Order (A New English Translation) – A Faithful Version with Commentary is bar none the best version of the Holy Bible on the market. And all true Christians should get a copy for themselves and OPEN IT UP – PRAY ABOUT IT – READ IT! Anyone who does will surely be greatly blessed for doing so.

May the LORD our God bless all of God’s people who seek His living truth. □
