"By works a man is justified and not by faith alone"

14 What doth it profit, my brethren, though a man say he hath faith, and have not works? can faith save him?

15 If a brother or sister be naked, and destitute of daily food,

16 And one of you say unto them, Depart in peace, be ye warmed and filled; notwithstanding ye give them not those things which are needful to the body; what doth it profit?

17 Even so faith, if it hath not works, is dead, being alone.

18 Yea, a man may say, Thou hast faith, and I have works: shew me thy faith without thy works, and I will shew thee my faith by my works.

19 Thou believest that there is one God; thou doest well: the devils also believe, and tremble.

20 But wilt thou know, O vain man, that faith without works is dead?

21 Was not Abraham our father justified by works, when he had offered Isaac his son upon the altar?

22 Seest thou how faith wrought with his works, and by works was faith made perfect?

23 And the scripture was fulfilled which saith, Abraham believed God, and it was imputed unto him for righteousness: and he was called the Friend of God.

24 Ye see then how that by works a man is justified, and not by faith only.

Abraham would never have offered up his son if he didn't have faith in the God of resurrection. Many people can claim to believe in the God of resurrection, but the proof is in this offering. But this also proved that Abraham was the friend of God because this act of sacrificing Isaac on the altar was crucial to the word of God and being a father of faith to all that come after him.

Ezekiel 22:1 The word of the Lord came to me: 2 “Son of man, will you judge her? Will you judge this city of bloodshed? Then confront her with all her detestable practices 3 and say: ‘This is what the Sovereign Lord says: You city that brings on herself doom by shedding blood in her midst and defiles herself by making idols, 4 you have become guilty because of the blood you have shed and have become defiled by the idols you have made. You have brought your days to a close, and the end of your years has come. Therefore I will make you an object of scorn to the nations and a laughingstock to all the countries. 5 Those who are near and those who are far away will mock you, you infamous city, full of turmoil.

Peter says that judgement must begin with the house of God, hence the "pre tribulation rapture". Being raptured is as much a judgement as being condemned. The US as "the Christian nation" will be judged and the US is clearly guilty with the shedding of blood. The US also makes idols out of performers, actors and actresses, professional sports teams, etc.

6 “‘See how each of the princes of Israel who are in you uses his power to shed blood. 7 In you they have treated father and mother with contempt;

This is what Biden's DOJ did when they classified parents who went to School board meetings as "domestic terrorists".

in you they have oppressed the foreigner and mistreated the fatherless and the widow.

Slavery was the mistreatment of the foreigner, and it didn't end with the Civil war. The realize they let in millions of illegal aliens is because they can't unionize, and they can't demand higher pay because if they do they simply deport them. There has bee a concerted effort to damage the inner city schools and promote promiscuity, single parents, and imprison young men of color.

8 You have despised my holy things and desecrated my Sabbaths.

No one dares insult the Islamic faith, but insulting Christians and Jesus is par for the course, Hollywood does it, TV does it, Grammies do it, Sports teams make it a pillar of their operation to desecrate the Lord's Sabbaths.

9 In you are slanderers who are bent on shedding blood;

Clearly evident when the Supreme Court overruled Roe v. Wade.

in you are those who eat at the mountain shrines and commit lewd acts.

Evident at Superbowl halftime shows, the Grammies and the Olympics.

10 In you are those who dishonor their father’s bed; in you are those who violate women during their period, when they are ceremonially unclean. 11 In you one man commits a detestable offense with his neighbor’s wife, another shamefully defiles his daughter-in-law, and another violates his sister, his own father’s daughter.

Sexual deviancy is clearly frequent and common in the US.

12 In you are people who accept bribes to shed blood;

Our government is filled with corrupt officials who do this.

you take interest and make a profit from the poor. You extort unjust gain from your neighbors. And you have forgotten me, declares the Sovereign Lord.

We saw this during the mortgage meltdown of 2008.

Ezekiel 22:13 “‘I will surely strike my hands together at the unjust gain you have made and at the blood you have shed in your midst. 14 Will your courage endure or your hands be strong in the day I deal with you? I the Lord have spoken, and I will do it. 15 I will disperse you among the nations and scatter you through the countries; and I will put an end to your uncleanness. 16 When you have been defiled[a] in the eyes of the nations, you will know that I am the Lord.’”

Judgement is coming, it is sure.

Ezekiel 22:17 Then the word of the Lord came to me: 18 “Son of man, the people of Israel have become dross to me; all of them are the copper, tin, iron and lead left inside a furnace. They are but the dross of silver. 19 Therefore this is what the Sovereign Lord says: ‘Because you have all become dross, I will gather you into Jerusalem. 20 As silver, copper, iron, lead and tin are gathered into a furnace to be melted with a fiery blast, so will I gather you in my anger and my wrath and put you inside the city and melt you. 21 I will gather you and I will blow on you with my fiery wrath, and you will be melted inside her. 22 As silver is melted in a furnace, so you will be melted inside her, and you will know that I the Lord have poured out my wrath on you.’”

You may be wondering why only 1/3 of Israel gets saved out of the tribulation. It is because God has gathered lead (sin), copper and tin (bronze age warrior), iron (iron age warrior). Jerusalem and the US are filled with sinners as well as two different kinds of warriors, those who are marines, seals, and rangers, and those who are cops. The US is a country filled with guns and Israel is a country famous for their defense forces. Jerusalem becomes that crucible where all these metals are melted in the furnace and the silver is scooped out.

Most people have a very simplistic view of a false prophet

To understand what a false prophet is you have to know what a genuine prophet is.

A genuine prophet speaks the word of God and has the goal of bringing you to salvation.

So, now consider Balaam, one of the examples given to us of a false prophet. He spoke the word of God but his goal was not to bring anyone to salvation but rather to fill his house with gold. He taught Balak how to put a stumbling block before the children of Israel to cause them to commit fornication.

Jude 11:Woe unto them! for they have gone in the way of Cain, and ran greedily after the error of Balaam for reward, and perished in the gainsaying of Core.

Revelation 2:14 But I have a few things against thee, because thou hast there them that hold the doctrine of Balaam, who taught Balac to cast a stumblingblock before the children of Israel, to eat things sacrificed unto idols, and to commit fornication.


So you can't simply say "does this person speak the word of God or not", that is not sufficient. What is the goal of their speaking?

It is easy to see that those who are not speaking the word of God are false prophets, it is much harder to see that someone who is speaking the word of God but has a different goal is a false prophet.

Now consider a very different false prophet. Perhaps they are teaching you about how to stay healthy physically, or how to invest, or how to advance your career, etc. They can have a goal of "bringing you to salvation". But are they speaking the word of God? We think if the person has a "good heart" with a "good motive" then they are ok. But the Bible tells us the heart of man is deceitfully wicked. How could anyone who has not been washed by the blood of the lamb and given a new heart have a "good heart"?

Let me illustrate, let's say your goal is to drive from NY to LA. Now suppose you meet someone along the way who helps you with your car, or helps you getting a good meal, or helps you in any number of ways but at the same time distracts you from your goal of going to LA. The enemies goal is to keep you from coming to the Lord and giving your whole life to Him. One way is if you end up in a ditch, but another way is if you end up seeking anything but Jesus. Paul talks about those who have misaimed. You don't have to aim at something that is 180 degrees away from the target to miss, even if you aim at something that is 1 degree away from the target you can miss. Satan's goal is that you miss the target, he doesn't care if it is by a little or a lot, either way he is successful. Demas forsook Paul having loved the world.

2 Timothy 4:10 For Demas hath forsaken me, having loved this present world, and is departed unto Thessalonica; Crescens to Galatia, Titus unto Dalmatia.

Pure religion is to care for widows and orphans -- that will protect you from Balaam. And it is to be unspotted by the world, that will protect you from all these other "good things" that are misaiming.

James 1:27 Pure religion and undefiled before God and the Father is this, To visit the fatherless and widows in their affliction, and to keep himself unspotted from the world.

Acts 19:19 Many of them also which used curious arts brought their books together, and burned them before all men: and they counted the price of them, and found it fifty thousand pieces of silver.

There are books about magic, Freemasons, witchcraft, etc. Obviously those are included in this verse. But what most people don't realize is that almost all music produced by major labels is satanic. Lucifer's special skill is in making music. There are about four or five hand signals that the Freemasons use, if you see these displayed on any of the albums of your singers then that is proof positive they are satanic. Bob Dylan gave his testimony that he sold his soul to the devil to become a famous singer. This isn't conjecture, the recent Grammies were clearly a worship ceremony to Satan. So your music, your albums, CDs, tapes, etc. are also part of this "curious arts". When I first got saved I realized I needed to deal with the music I listened to. I was led to burn the albums. Those albums were worth money and thirty or forty years later many of those albums are worth a lot of money. So when I burned my record collection I was burning up something that was worth a significant investment that I had made. Just like this verse describes. However, I never regretted burning them, it was a burnt offering to the Lord, that music never had a hold on me after that, and what would it say if I felt the music was "satanic" and then sold it for someone else to listen to?

Proverbs 26 -- Wake up, they are working to ruin this country

1 Like snow in summer or rain in harvest, honor is not fitting for a fool.

Joe Biden has appointed several high profile fools to positions of honor. One notable one was in charge of the border, in perfect Spanish announced the border is open, and then presided over the crisis prior to having to resign. Another one of these fools represents the US to the world at the UN and disparages the US as a racist country. Following that we had several fools oversee the Afghan exodus, the Secretary of State, Secretary of Defense, the Pentagon and the President were all responsible for abandoning secure airfields, leaving Americans and allies behind, giving out "kill sheets" and giving away billions of dollars of military equipment.

2 Like a fluttering sparrow or a darting swallow, an undeserved curse does not come to rest.

Trump was cursed for saying HCQ could treat Covid. Bannon was cursed for saying Covid could become a pandemic back in January of 2020. The "unvaccinated" were cursed. And January 6th was said to be as bad as 9/11. These were undeserved curses.

3 A whip for the horse, a bridle for the donkey, and a rod for the backs of fools! 4 Do not answer a fool according to his folly, or you yourself will be just like him. 5 Answer a fool according to his folly, or he will be wise in his own eyes.

Do not answer a fool according to his folly because if you do you will be just like him. However, if you are already going to be just like him then it is pointless to factor that into the decision and in that case answer him or he will be wise in his own eyes. For example, race baiting, it is generally better to avoid being baited into responding because whatever you say will be mischaracterized. However, if it is too late and you have already been labeled as a racist because of the “critical race theory” then you need to respond and dismantle that pathetic thesis.

6 Sending a message by the hands of a fool is like cutting off one’s feet or drinking poison.

Yes, I have learned to say what I am going to say in writing because I find that giving a fool the message to mangle is just like drinking poison.

7 Like the useless legs of one who is lame is a proverb in the mouth of a fool. 8 Like tying a stone in a sling is the giving of honor to a fool.

Wow, the way I get it, he is saying that giving honor to a fool is like loading a bullet in the chamber. Or, in other words, making Joe Biden president is like loading a bullet in the chamber or like approving Judge Jackson to the Supreme court is like loading a bullet in the chamber.

9 Like a thornbush in a drunkard’s hand is a proverb in the mouth of a fool.

Imagine a drunkard who is staggering around, falling into people, falling on the ground and doing all that while holding a thornbush in his hand. Remember a fool is a person who does not fear God, they are not able to handle the word of God.

10 Like an archer who wounds at random is one who hires a fool or any passer-by.

Again, it appears to me that Joe Biden is hiring fools or any passer by to important positions in the government. The same day Biden mandated the vaccine to all the Vice President Kamala Harris said that for women it is "my body my choice". The same people who claim they are protecting women cannot define what a woman is.

11 As a dog returns to its vomit, so fools repeat their folly.

Biden promised that not one of his relatives would have business interests in China, yet Hunter Biden still has significant business interests in China.

12 Do you see a person wise in their own eyes? There is more hope for a fool than for them. 13 A sluggard says, “There’s a lion in the road, a fierce lion roaming the streets!”

If you allow Cancel Culture to be used as an excuse to do nothing then you are a sluggard. I understand that some believers may not agree that this vaccine is the precursor to the Mark of the Beast, they may not agree that it is like wiring a house for electricity before the power is turned on, but they speak with such assurance telling people it isn't so. A great example is this Jackson nomination and approval process. Some are claiming it doesn't matter, she'll be approved no matter what. But look at how much the opposition has done? A tie vote in the committee was a major embarrassment to them, claiming that they are racists to vote against her just reminds us of Biden and others who voted against previous black women nominees, saying that they were asking "tough questions" is hypocrisy compared to the Kavanaugh hearing. Democrats asked if "he liked beer" and asked about his calendar in high school, while the Republicans asked Jackson about her rulings as a judge. Thousands of people have flooded the phone lines demanding the senators not approve her.

14 As a door turns on its hinges, so a sluggard turns on his bed. 15 A sluggard buries his hand in the dish; he is too lazy to bring it back to his mouth. 16 A sluggard is wiser in his own eyes than seven people who answer discreetly.

Right now we are seeing ordinary Americans all over this country doing something and answering discreetly. Some are getting involved in precinct politics, some are involved in auditing the election, some are involved in setting up alternate platforms for speech, still others are involved in getting the news out. What are the sluggards doing? Nothing. They thought they were so wise listening to NY Times only to learn 17 months later that the Hunter Biden laptop was real or 35 months later that January 6th was a false flag.

17 Like one who grabs a stray dog by the ears is someone who rushes into a quarrel not their own. 18 Like a maniac shooting flaming arrows of death 19 is one who deceives their neighbor and says, “I was only joking!” 20 Without wood a fire goes out; without a gossip a quarrel dies down.

The mainstream media is acting as a gossip, throwing wood on the fire to keep their race war blazing. Recently a "church of Satan" filed a lawsuit against Texas' law concerning abortion saying that it was their religious rite and that abortion was a human sacrifice. People were horrified but they responded that they were joking? So they file a frivolous lawsuit and joke to 60 million women who have had abortions that they were sacrificing their baby to Satan. Either they are liars or maniacs. 80% of men and 50% of women suffer from hair loss, it is a very common result of aging yet Will Smith goes up and slaps Chris Rock on national TV over this. His wife shows up to the event bald. If she was embarrassed about this or didn't want anyone to know then put a wig on. This is just a desperate attempt to throw wood on this fire of gossip and keep people distracted from the invasion at the Southern border and the collapse of the US dollar.

21 As charcoal to embers and as wood to fire, so is a quarrelsome person for kindling strife. 22 The words of a gossip are like choice morsels; they go down to the inmost parts. 23 Like a coating of silver dross on earthenware are fervent lips with an evil heart. 24 Enemies disguise themselves with their lips, but in their hearts they harbor deceit. 25 Though their speech is charming, do not believe them, for seven abominations fill their hearts. 26 Their malice may be concealed by deception, but their wickedness will be exposed in the assembly.

This is what I have seen with the Biden administration. You love what they say, it sounds great. But it is covering up evil and disguising deceit. Their heart is filled with malice and abominations. But now after a few years it is being exposed. It is hard to believe anyone could have accidentally messed up Afghanistan, Ukraine or the border this badly, but an enemy in disguise, that is much easier to believe.

27 Whoever digs a pit will fall into it; if someone rolls a stone, it will roll back on them.

The election fraud was a pit they dug. Getting Biden elected was like rolling a heavy stone up a big hill. What do you think happens now that democrats are accusing democrats of stealing elections? Those who were elected through fraud get thrown into a pit. Those who perpetrated this fraud will have the weight of justice fall on their heads.

28 A lying tongue hates those it hurts, and a flattering mouth works ruin.

One thing has become very clear, there are a lot of people who are now in Biden’s administration that are filled with hate. The hate is quite evident if you simply read what they have written or said previously. It is also clear that Biden’s administration is working ruin to this country. It is as though they hooked up a vacuum cleaner to the printing presses that print US dollars. Not only so but they have torn down our walls that protect this country. On many, many fronts they are actively working to bring ruin to America.

Advice for Ministry

I believe that all things come into being through the word of God and apart from the word of God there is nothing that has come into being.

My prayer is that I could read the word of God and understand it.

I will put my trust in the word of God.

Proverbs 11:1 The Lord detests dishonest scales, but accurate weights find favor with him.

This is why I like to stick to the Bible. I feel like the Bible is the keel on any ministry, it keeps the boat riding straight through the water regardless of how strong the wind is. My personal opinion is not an accurate weight.

2 When pride comes, then comes disgrace, but with humility comes wisdom.

This is the second reason. I feel like the Bible is the compass on the boat. If I am following the compass reading I’ll be fine, take that away and my pride will take me off course.

3 The integrity of the upright guides them, but the unfaithful are destroyed by their duplicity.

This is the third reason. How far off course can you get if you are glued to the word of God? There are several OT passages that seem to describe being glued to the word of God (put the frontlets on your forehead, nail the ear to the door, etc). What you see with cults is they go off course and soon like Balaam are way off course. They love money and the reward of money and next they are twisting the word into “the prosperity gospel” or they are selling indulgences, or some other scam .

4 Wealth is worthless in the day of wrath, but righteousness delivers from death.

People who love money refuse to hear this. Suppose you lived in the Ukraine and then with the invasion you had to flee. Your home and business is destroyed. What good was that wealth in the day of wrath? However, if you embrace that word then when the Lord warns you, like Lot, to leave, you do and that will deliver you from death.

5 The righteousness of the blameless makes their paths straight, but the wicked are brought down by their own wickedness.

Is our President going to be brought down by his own wickedness? All the major media outlets are now reporting that the Hunter Biden laptop is real. Hillary Clinton was fined for her role in the Steel Dossier. Durham released an indictment on Clinton’s law firm for lying to investigators and being involved in a conspiracy to bring down Trump. We think that this has nothing to do with Christian ministries but that doesn’t make sense, many ministries have been brought down by wickedness. Trusting in your own opinion, that is pride, not being faithful to the word of God leads to your destruction. Look at what has happened to this country in the last 50 years as they have abandoned the word of God.

7 Hopes placed in mortals die with them; all the promise of their power comes to nothing.

I have seen this, too much hope placed in someone who is ministering the word of God. They have special doctrines and interpretations, Jehovah Witness do this, Seventh day Adventists do this, Mormons do this. It is very common. Too many believers trusting in their pastor rather than the Bible.

25 A generous person will prosper; whoever refreshes others will be refreshed.

A simple principle in ministry.

12:1 Whoever loves discipline loves knowledge, but whoever hates correction is stupid.

Look at that verse, imagine a ministry telling people they are stupid or correcting them or disciplining them? Who are you to judge? Just another reason I prefer to be glued to the Bible — if the words have correction or judgement let it come from the word of God, not from me.

3 No one can be established through wickedness, but the righteous cannot be uprooted.

Isn’t this the kind of ministry you want? It is like the ark that Noah built, you want it to go through the worst storms in earth’s history.

4 A wife of noble character is her husband’s crown, but a disgraceful wife is like decay in his bones.

The ministry is the wife, Jesus is the husband. When your ministry is based fully on His word it becomes His crown. For example, suppose Noah’s ministry was considered a major failure by others in the town because there were people preaching a prosperity gospel that had much bigger congregations. What about the Lord, do you think He would agree that Noah should stop with this nonsense about a flood and building an ark and instead try to preach things more popular?

7 The wicked are overthrown and are no more, but the house of the righteous stands firm.

This is what we are doing in this age, right? We are coworkers with God building the church.

15 The way of fools seems right to them, but the wise listen to advice.

In the book of Proverbs the fool is the one who does not fear the Lord. So then if the wise are those that fear the Lord, does this advice come from God? From the word? From fellowship?

My brother rebuked me about 3 years ago because there were four family members telling me I was wrong about Hunter Biden’s laptop and not only them but also “vetted journalists” like NY Times were also saying it was disinformation. He said that I should listen when the majority of my family is telling me something. This was true, the problem with his analysis was he was ignoring the church. The majority of my brothers and sisters in the church were telling me we had a problem. At the time it was 2:1, now it is more like 5:1. I tried to tell him but since they weren’t “vetted journalists” he wouldn’t listen.

So yes, we need to listen to advice, but we need to be very careful about who it is we are listening to. We learned earlier in Proverbs that this book will teach you how to discern. I have about six brothers I trust and try to listen to every week or every month. I will listen to many others but with them it is like putting the toe in the water.

Examples of Proverbs teaching discernment:

“a mocker does not respond to rebukes”

“the unfaithful have an appetite for violence”

“those who speak rashly will come to ruin”

“the wicked make themselves a stench and bring shame on themselves”

“one person pretends to be rich, yet has nothing”

“where there is strife there is pride”

“fools detest turning from evil”

I went back and read emails from three years ago

Ezekiel 23:32 Thus saith the Lord God; Thou shalt drink of thy sister's cup deep and large: thou shalt be laughed to scorn and had in derision; it containeth much.

33 Thou shalt be filled with drunkenness and sorrow, with the cup of astonishment and desolation, with the cup of thy sister Samaria.

34 Thou shalt even drink it and suck it out, and thou shalt break the sherds thereof, and pluck off thine own breasts: for I have spoken it, saith the Lord God.

I was laughed to scorn, I was held in derision, for the warnings I gave. Everyone needs to realize, as you have done it will be done to you, with what measure you measure it will be measured to you.

35 Therefore thus saith the Lord God; Because thou hast forgotten me, and cast me behind thy back, therefore bear thou also thy lewdness and thy whoredoms.

They blocked my posts, they warned others to stay away from me.

46 For thus saith the Lord God; I will bring up a company upon them, and will give them to be removed and spoiled.

47 And the company shall stone them with stones, and dispatch them with their swords; they shall slay their sons and their daughters, and burn up their houses with fire.

48 Thus will I cause lewdness to cease out of the land, that all women may be taught not to do after your lewdness.

49 And they shall recompense your lewdness upon you, and ye shall bear the sins of your idols: and ye shall know that I am the Lord God.

Ezekiel 25:2 Son of man, set thy face against the Ammonites, and prophesy against them;

3 And say unto the Ammonites, Hear the word of the Lord God; Thus saith the Lord God; Because thou saidst, Aha, against my sanctuary, when it was profaned; and against the land of Israel, when it was desolate; and against the house of Judah, when they went into captivity;

4 Behold, therefore I will deliver thee to the men of the east for a possession, and they shall set their palaces in thee, and make their dwellings in thee: they shall eat thy fruit, and they shall drink thy milk.

5 And I will make Rabbah a stable for camels, and the Ammonites a couching place for flocks: and ye shall know that I am the Lord.

The Ammonites were the descendants of Lot by incest. They followed Abraham to the good land but ultimately separated from him. There are many "christians" whose faith is really based on following a man, not a direct relationship with the Lord. Because of that they will always fall short though the Bible says "Lot was righteous". They are forgiven and washed by the blood, but they are not filled and indwelt by the Holy Spirit. Imagine a tire that is flat. The tire is profaned and instead of repairing the flat they rejoice when bad things happen to others. Love does not rejoice when others suffer evil. When the church is raptured there will be many who are left behind because they don't have a daily walk with the Lord. We will see this in the US and we will see "the men of the East" (China?) take the land, houses, and churches for a possession.

6 For thus saith the Lord God; Because thou hast clapped thine hands, and stamped with the feet, and rejoiced in heart with all thy despite against the land of Israel;

7 Behold, therefore I will stretch out mine hand upon thee, and will deliver thee for a spoil to the heathen; and I will cut thee off from the people, and I will cause thee to perish out of the countries: I will destroy thee; and thou shalt know that I am the Lord.

There are also those who were raised in Christian homes but despise the church and the Lord.

How could you convince the whole world to control all financial transactions?

1. This could be seen as a way to eliminate all theft. I am old enough to remember when people would get mugged on payday, it was very common. But then they created "direct deposit" and now no one gets mugged on payday. Likewise people would get mugged to give them your "money" but with credit cards and debit cards no one does that anymore. Also you would have people threatened to go to an ATM and empty the account and give it to the thief, but now all ATM's have cameras so no one does that anymore.

So the biggest scams now are stealing information to apply for phony credit cards and steal money that way. Also you have cyber thieves. Putting the chip in your hand could eliminate this as well.

2. This could be seen as a way to eliminate tax fraud. All of these countries being unable to pay their bills and tax fraud being in the billions, giving the government a list of all transactions you make during the entire year would be able to eliminate all tax fraud, all tax havens, tax shelters, etc.

3. This could solve many if not all crimes. If each person has a digital tracking device in them you would be able to solve virtually all crimes. Suppose a crime takes place at 2am on a dark, lonely ally. Simply check the digital records to see who was there.

Psalm 83:17 Let them be confounded and troubled for ever; yea, let them be put to shame, and perish:

This war in Psalm 83 could not have been fulfilled prior to this because it says "let them be confounded and troubled for ever" and yet here they are fighting a war against Israel today. Not only so but Israel has made it clear they plan to have them confounded and troubled for ever, they will be put to shame and perish never to return.
