What Did Jesus Say? (2012) - 7 topics

Doug,

   Here is my testimony.

             In 1993 after a failed relationship and failing business I got into the Charismatic church movement. I had always been taught about the Bible and Jesus as a child, yet this time is was my choice as a young adult. Yet my motive was still wrong, I wanted Heavenly Father/Jesus to give me money, miracle money from my tithe offering, it was to be multiplied 30,60 or 100 fold given back to me so I can be a Kings Kid now and in Heaven.

 I got into Charismatic TV and books and tapes they sell. I also thought I was in “spiritual warfare” and I got into that as well and radio shows about answer man who knows everything and so on and so forth. After many months in 1995, I had a complete breakdown, no two “teachers” could agree and I was praying for the Truth and monies/worldly things at the same time and I completely broke down. I was at my business, setting in a chair crying and my mom came by to check on me. I told her “I’m either under a curse or God doesn’t like me”. I found out that isn’t true at all. As I said that to my mom, I got a clear “vision” or “plan” from our Heavenly Father. I was to read Matthew, Mark, Luke and John (MML&J) over and over again only.

I got trash bags and loaded up all the book, cassettes and materials, as I recall 3 full trash bags and headed to the land fill. If these materials weren’t good for me, and not truth that heals and sets free, I wasn’t going to give them away to someone else but destroy them.           

 I found a cassette series at the store, The Bible read by Gregory Peck King James Version New Testament, I got a Sony walkman and lots of batteries, my business allowed me to listen many days at a time to cassettes while I worked. I would hear things and pause and walk to my paper copy of scriptures at my desk which was NIV, the words and meanings were changed and the explanation at the bottom of each page was wrong from what I was being taught from God’s spirit. This was a leather bound fancy $80 NIV book, I learned that if you have an original copy of NIV it’s published by White Star, the company that built the Titanic ship. I now threw that book away also and use the King James Version only. My eyes, ears and heart was being opened as I was taught by the Spirit of truth.

1 John 2:27 |  

But the anointing which ye have received of him abideth in you, and ye need not that any man teach you: but as the same anointing teacheth you of all things, and is truth, and is no lie, and even as it hath taught you, ye shall abide in him.

I went through an angry phase at preachers as I was learning all these truths that was setting me free because the “preachers” were not even speaking of these verses and teachings, making people tithe every week when under the Law the tithe was once every 3 years and the widow putting her last two mites into the collection at the temple was not what our Heavenly Father instructed. Money/currency was forbidden in the house of the Lord as it is “the house of Prayer” and Malachi was addressed to the Priests not the people.

Malachi 2:1

And now, O ye priests, this commandment is for you

 what I heard taught in church was changed or opposite what Jesus taught and there is no spiritual warfare or "binding the devil" what a relief!

            Finally I realized, I had my copy of the scriptures and could have at any time leaned against Jesus breast and been taught of the Father and the truth that sets free and it was my laziness and pride that I went to “church” and paid a man to tell me the truth and only got into more bondage.

            I stayed listening to MML&J for 3 years and added Proverbs also. One day I went to the box of cassettes and listened to one of Pharisee Saul's letters, it was awful, double speak, condemning, confusing & strange. This was not the same spirit of MML&J and I couldn't listen to it. Pharisee Saul's Letters cassettes tapes remained new and MML&J were heavily worn in there box. You chose the topic or doctrine and Pharisee Saul taught the opposite of Jesus. I quickly learned not to talk about this as it made Christians angry and I understood why, this is a big step an it's a lonely, narrow path to choose Jesus words only.

            My life has only gotten more challenging, the trials more intense and yet I keep to Jesus words only and I keep seeing new lessons, I now include the true apostles after Pharisee Saul's letters James, John, Peter & Jude. As I lose more possessions, not gain, I keep

Matthew 13

44 Again, the kingdom of heaven is like unto treasure hid in a field; the which when a man hath found, he hideth, and for joy thereof goeth and selleth all that he hath, and buyeth that field.

45 Again, the kingdom of heaven is like unto a merchant man, seeking goodly pearls:

46 Who, when he had found one pearl of great price, went and sold all that he had, and bought it.

  

In my mind and above my desk, "Pearl of great price" I repeat to myself whenever I lose more property and freedom as my spine has many problems and chronic pain worsens. Here is truth you won't hear in our modern churches, it is

James 4:4|

Ye adulterers and adulteresses, know ye not that the friendship of the world is enmity with God? whosoever therefore will be a friend of the world is the enemy of God.

and

Mark 8:36|

For what shall it profit a man, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul?

Luke 9:25|

For what is a man advantaged, if he gain the whole world, and lose himself, or be cast away?

Matthew 16:26|

For what is a man profited, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul? or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul?

and lastly

John 10:27|

My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me: And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand. 29My Father, which gavethem me, is greater than all; and no man is able to pluck them out of my Father's hand. 30I and myFather are one.

            The book name of "Jesus Words Only" is an excellent name for this book and website! as Pharisee Saul's letters from prison are a stumbling block on the way to the narrow straight gate that leads to eternal life, and few there be that find it.
