From One Believer To Another

From One Believer to Another

If this is your first time visiting this blog, “Welcome!”

As you read, I pray you’ll not see me as being angry at anyone. Firm at times with some, I’ll agree with that. I know that no matter what a person has gone through, things they’ve said or done, or still doing for that matter, there’s a 50/50 chance of my having sought forgiveness for doing the exact same thing at one time or another. I know the battle is not against flesh and blood my friend.

Throughout this blog you will find me quoting things heard on the radio. You’ll not find the names of those who said these things in the posts. I do document their names, the date, time, and radio station call sign on my copy of the original document. I do not publish these details because our mission should be to expose the false teachings not to personally attack the person.

If you should continue reading my friend, you will find the Anthanasian Creed being exposed for what it is, a false doctrine. The word of God having the final say. My trusting in He who knows hears and sees all things, the God of the [Bible].

As The Scripture Has Said

“That you may with one mind and with one mouth glorify the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ.” Apostle Saul (who is also called Paul), Romans 15:6 (NKJV)

In the precious and beautiful name of Messiah Yeshua “Jesus,” greetings.

“But you, Bethlehem Ephrathah, though you are little among the thousands of Judah, yet out of you shall come forth to Me the One to be Ruler in Israel, whose goings forth are from of old, from everlasting.” Therefore He shall give them up, until the time that she who is in labor has given birth; then the remnant of His brethren shall return to the children of Israel. And He shall stand and feed His flock in the strength of the Lord, in the majesty of the name of the Lord His God; and they shall abide, for now He shall be great to the ends of the earth; and this One shall be peace.  Micah 5:2-5 (NKJV)

In the next few weeks [linking] Jesus to Micah 5:2, specifically Jesus’ birth in “Bethlehem,” will be heard many times throughout the world.  Micah’s prophecy reveals much more than Jesus’ birth in “Bethlehem” my friends.  Giving the words in Micah 5:4, “His God,” equal time would show those teaching Jesus claimed to be “God” in the [Scriptures] are false.

He shall stand” in Micah 5:2-5, is referring to the [Biblical] Jesus.  Saying Jesus [will] “stand and feed His flock in the strength of the Lord, in the name of the Lord His God,” is the [Biblically] correct thing to do.

On the last day, that great day of the feast, Jesus stood and cried out, saying, “If anyone thirsts, let him come to Me and drink. He who believes in Me, as the Scripture has said, out of his heart will flow rivers of living waters.” But this He spoke concerning the Spirit, whom those believing in Him would receive; for the Holy Spirit was not yet given, because Jesus was not yet glorified.

Therefore many from the crowd, when they heard this saying, said, “Truly this is the Prophet.” Others said, “This is the Christ.” But some said, “Will the Christ come out of Galilee? Has not the Scripture said that the Christ comes from the seed of David and from the town of Bethlehem, where David was?

So there was a division among the people because of Him. Now some of them wanted to take Him, but no one laid hands on Him. John 7:37-44 (NKJV)

Hundreds of years after “He shall stand and feed His flock in the strength of the Lord, in the majesty of the name of the Lord His God Micah’s prophecy, “Jesus stood and cried out, saying, He who believes in Me, as the Scripture has said.” 

Not everyone within hearing distance of Jesus’ voice that day said “Has not the Scripture said that the Christ comes from the seed of David and from the town of Bethlehem, where David was,” but some did. 

Micah’s prophecy was [obviously] known by some, when Jesus said “He who believes in Me, as the Scripture has said,” in the first century.

The question today isn’t whether or not Jesus is “from the town of Bethlehem,” He is.  It’s who do we think we are questioning “as the Scripture has said,” what Jesus said?  I don’t know about you but everything said about Jesus is subject to “as the Scripture has said,” the inspired word of God.  I can safely say man’s interpretations of the [Scripture], is number one on the list of questionable teachings.

Jesus answered them and said, “My doctrine is not Mine, but His who sent Me (John 7:16 NKJV). 

In John 7:16, who would you say sent “Me,” Jesus?  I say the all-knowing God of the [Bible] sent Jesus. 

Jesus said to her, “Do not cling to Me, for I have not yet ascended to My Father; but go to My brethren and say to them, ‘I am ascending to My Father and your Father, and to My God and your God.’” John 20:17 (NKJV)

Would you say “I am ascending,” Jesus ascended [to] the all-knowing God of the [Bible]?  I would.  How about the all-knowing God of the [Bible]?  Is that same God Jesus’ “My God” God and, “My Father” Father (John 20:17)?  

I’m not looking to force anyone into believing anything here, but the [Biblical] Jesus is known for telling the truth.  John 20:17 not only begins with “Jesus said to her,” it clearly shows Jesus is well aware of who Jesus’ brethren’s God and Father is.  Jesus’ God and, Father. 

Would you say Jesus calling who has to be the all-knowing God of the [Bible] His God and Father is an absolute truth?  I would.  I’ll say the God of Abraham Isaac and Jacob, the all-knowing God of the [Bible], is Jesus’ God all day long.

Keep in mind the inspired word of God endures forever and, it cannot change.  Outside influences, outside the [Bible] that is, can get Micah 5:2-5, John 7:37-44, John 7:16 and John 20:17, to say/mean whatever they like.  If it’s not “as the Scripture has said,” a false teaching it will be.  This obviously places man’s interpretations of the [Scripture] in their proper place, hearsay at best.

To say the [Biblical] Jesus [is] the only one that can fulfill Micah’s prophecy” is to say, “As the Scripture has said.”  To say My doctrine is not Mine” the doctrine Jesus is speaking of in John 7:16 wasn’t His to begin with is to say, “As the Scripture has said.”  Being prepared to answer questions concerning God’s plan of salvation, “As the Scripture has said” should be priority number one. 

If you’re teaching Jesus [was] born in “Bethlehem,” feeding “His flock in the strength of the Lord, in the majesty of the name of the Lord His God,” and that He calls the all-knowing God of the [Bible] His God and, Father, it’ll be safe for you to say “As the Scripture has said.”

The [Biblical] Jesus feeding His flock in the strength of the Lord, in the majesty of the name of the Lord His God (Micah 5:4),” along with John 7:37-44, John 7:16 and John 20:17, puts the Anthanasian Creeds false method of salvation on notice.

It is my obligation to tell you, if you’re teaching the Anthanasian Creed is a biblical truth, or its by-product the doctrine of the “Trinity,” you’ve chosen to ignore “as the Scripture has said,” the teachings of the [Biblical] Jesus. 

With the many different systems of beliefs floating around these days, using Jesus’ name within them, it’ll be easy to prove ignoring “as the Scripture has said” has been going on for quite some time.  God’s plan of salvation remains “as the Scripture has said,” the same. 

There’s no [Biblical] evidence of anyone having to believe [or else] the Anthanasian Creeds “the Son is God” to be saved.

God bless.

You Don't Have To Believe It!


“Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who according to His abundant mercy has begotten us again to a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead,” 1 Peter 1:3 (NKJV)

In the precious and beautiful name of Messiah Yeshua “Jesus,” greetings.

While listening to the local “Christian” radio station I heard, “Even though you can’t understand it you have to believe it.”  The speaker on the radio is a follower of the Anthanasian Creed which would explain everything.  Anthanasian Creed would be the definition of forcing people to believe something is [Biblically] sound when there’s no [Biblical] evidence of it being so to begin with.  Of all the ridiculous things I have ever heard, “Even though you can’t understand it you have to believe it” tops them all. 

I’ve known for quite some time that the gap between the goings on within the walls of the earthly institution called “church” and the ways of the world, is steadily shrinking.  There should be a noticeable difference between [Bible] carrying believers and those rejecting the gospel of Jesus Christ. 

If you’re teaching “Even though you can’t understand it you have to believe it” from behind the pulpit, you have just closed that gap [COMPLETELY].  In the speakers attempt to link the Anthanasian Creeds “100% God and Man” to the [Scriptures], he proved “fake news” exist within the walls of the earthly institution called “church.”

The gospel of Jesus Christ isn’t encouraging anyone to believe, “Even though you can’t understand it you have to believe it” the Anthanasian Creeds [false] method of salvation.  Don’t be fooled my friends.  True followers of Messiah Yeshua don’t force people to believe anything.  Only those looking out for their own best interest, do such a thing.

“For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.”  John 3:16 (NKJV)

Here’s some sound [Biblical] advice for the follower of the Anthanasian Creed.  God’s plan of salvation is plain, simple, and [easy] to understand.  Whoever believes in Him,” believe in Jesus (John 3:16).  Trust God.

Giving thanks to God.
Praying for the peace of Jerusalem.
God bless.

What If The Anthanasian Creed Is Right?

“We give thanks to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, praying always for you,” Colossians 1:3 (NKJV)

In the precious and beautiful name of Messiah Yeshua “Jesus,” greetings.

In the midst of a conversation I was asked, “What if the Anthanasian Creed is right?”

Here’s my reply:

If you mean biblically sound, you need to think about what you are saying.  If the [only] way for a person to be saved is according to what is laid out in the Anthanasian Creed, you’re saying the inspired word of God is subject to the Anthanasian Creed.   

In God’s plan of salvation, there is no other name by which we must be saved.  That’ll be, the name of Jesus.  The question that needs to be answered has nothing to do with the Anthanasian Creed.  It is why people don’t see the biblical Jesus for who He is, the Son of God.  That creed isn’t taking anyone into the kingdom of God.

I then went on to say:

The Anthanasian Creed doesn’t prove the existence of “the Son is God,” it’s the source of it.  Prior to the Anthanasian Creed becoming doctrine of the Catholic Church in 325-AD “the Son is God,” isn’t. 

We talked for a few more minutes, which led me to say:

If you’re teaching the person who rejects the doctrine of the “Trinity” cannot be saved, aren’t you saying God’s plan of salvation [is] subject to the doctrines of men?  If you look at the evidence, you are.  The doctrine of the “Trinity” is a by-product of the Anthanasian Creed and it has the fingerprints of men all over it.

I’ve been asked many times, “What if the Anthanasian Creed is right?”  Although I have to admit, not so much lately.  In this case, as it was in most cases, it came from a follower of the Anthanasian Creed.

As a firm believer [in] Messiah Yeshua it is my obligation to tell you.  Having to believe [or else] the Anthanasian Creeds “the Son is God” to be saved isn’t biblically sound.

And truly Jesus did many other signs in the presence of His disciples, which are not written in this book; but these are written that you may believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God, and that believing you may have life in His name. John 20:30-31 (NKJV)

Whoever confesses that Jesus is the Son of God, God abides in him, and he in God.  1 John 4:15 (NKJV) 

The [Biblically] correct thing to do is believe/confess “Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God.  Whoever confesses that Jesus is the Son of God, God abides in him, and he in God.”

After reading John 20:30-31 and 1 John 4:15, how one could not see the significance of keeping the Anthanasian Creed as far away from God’s plan of salvation as could possibly be, is beyond comprehension.

God bless.

Trust God At All Times

“Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places in Christ.” Ephesians 1:3 (NKJV)

In the precious and beautiful name of Messiah Yeshua “Jesus,” greetings.

While listening to the local “Christian” radio station I, along with the entire listening audience at the time, received an invitation to tune into the next day’s program where I will hear “Seven ways to live the Christian life.”  The speaker on the radio went on to say, concerning the [seven ways], “I figured them out for myself.” 

I know true followers of Messiah Yeshua aren’t called to “figure out” the inspired word of God for themselves.  The gospel of Jesus Christ encourages us to trust God at all times.  I totally ignored the speaker’s invitation to listen to the next day’s program. 

I know the speaker on the radio is a follower of the Anthanasian Creed.  His “Seven ways to live the Christian life” are better off left, unsaid.  You can’t teach “Seven ways to live the Christian life” believing, false doctrines.  Nothing has caused more people to turn from biblical truths, to false teachings, than the Anthanasian Creed.     

As a firm believer [in] Messiah Yeshua it is my obligation to tell you.  Every false doctrine begins with “I figured them out for myself,” someone ignoring [Biblical] truths.

God bless.

There's No Partiality With God

“Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places in Christ.” Ephesians 1:3 (NKJV)

In the precious and beautiful name of Messiah Yeshua “Jesus,” greetings.

I have been asked what I thought about the “racial” problems we’re faced with today, so I’ll touch on it briefly. 

Let me begin by saying, if one “statistic” is true, the majority of those living in the United States of America say they are Christians.  With that said, I find it hard to believe non-Christians are the [only] ones guilty of judging by skin color.  It’s a problem that one calling themselves a “Christian,” judge others by the color of their skin. 

I’m not saying that I would expect it from nonbelievers in Jesus Christ, just that I would not expect it from true followers of Jesus Christ.  Seeing others as created in the image of God is the [mark] of a true follower of Jesus Christ.  The very thought of labeling someone because of skin color has me praying, “God help me not to stumble.”  If not for the grace of God, only God knows what I would think about skin color or what side of the “racial” problems facing us today I would be on.

“You have a few names even in Sardis who have not defiled their garments; and they shall walk with Me in white, for they are worthy. He who overcomes shall be clothed in white garments, and I will not blot out his name from the Book of Life, but I will confess his name before My Father and before His angels.” Revelation 3:4-5 (NKJV)

For there is no partiality with God. Romans 2:11 (NKJV)

They shall walk with Me in white” and “He who overcomes shall be clothed in white garments,” has absolutely nothing to do with skin color.  “For there is no partiality with God” guarantees it, 100% of the time.

When Jesus said “I will confess his name before My Father and before His angels” in Revelation 3:5, He was referring to “he who overcomes” the names of those “worthy” to “be clothed in white garments.”  There’s no [Biblical] evidence of those “clothed in white garments” being “worthy,” are so because of the color of their skin.

Messiah Yeshua’s second coming is where one’s focus should be, looking forward to being [with] Jesus that is.  Those looking to “walk with” Jesus, should be encouraging others to do the same.  To keep from judging others by the color of their skin spread truths that can only be found in the inspired word of God, “For there is no partiality with God.”    

God Bless.

There Is Nothing Above God

“Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who according to His abundant mercy has begotten us again to a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead,” 1 Peter 1:3 (NKJV)

In the precious and beautiful name of Messiah Yeshua “Jesus,” greetings.

Nothing has caused more people to turn from [Biblical] truths to false teachings, than the Anthanasian Creed.  For the past sixteen hundred plus years, a whole lot of people have been led to believe the Anthanasian Creed is biblically sound when nothing could be further from the truth. 

There’s no [Biblical] evidence of anyone having to believe [or else] to be saved the Anthanasian Creeds “the Son is God.”  The Anthanasian Creed is and will continue to be, the high priest of all false doctrines.  Keep this in mind as you continue reading, believing in Messiah YeshuaJesus Christ,” is a choice.

If you have chosen to believe the Anthanasian Creed then the creed itself forces you to put it above the plan of salvation given to us in the [Bible].

The Anthanasian Creed itself [forces] people to believe the only way for a person to be [Biblically] saved is found in it.  Its false method of salvation, unless a person “faithfully” believes what’s documented in it they “cannot be saved,” is available for all to see.  The last sentence of the Anthanasian Creed, can’t be read to mean anything else:

“This is the catholic [Christian] faith; which except you believe faithfully and firmly, you cannot be saved.”

I listened to a discussion recently concerning current events and I heard, “He chooses God over the Constitution.”  The speaker was [shocked] to hear someone actually confessed to putting God [above] the Constitution of the United States of America.  I say “shocked” because the expression on the speaker’s face was, convincing.  As false as it may be to put the constitution above God as the speaker does, it will not turn as many away from [Biblical] truths as the Anthanasian Creed has.  Although the speaker’s belief is a falsehood, it does not impact ones salvation.  Neither the Anthanasian Creed nor the Constitution of the United States of America has anything to do with the salvation of one’s soul. 

I totally agree with freedom of speech.  The speaker in this case however, not only admits to attending “church” on a regular basis, he calls himself a “Christian.”  It’s a problem that one calling himself a “Christian,” does not put God [above] the Constitution.  I’d be willing to say that the follower of the Anthanasian Creed would be shocked to hear the speaker say this and yet still not see themselves as doing the same thing.  They put the Anthanasian Creed above God’s plan of salvation.

The Anthanasian Creed has created enough problems, sixteen hundred plus years’ worth.  There’s no need to have the Constitution of the United States of America create more.

I’m willing to say those responsible for [forcing] people to believe what became doctrine of the Catholic Church in 325-AD the Anthanasian Creed, called themselves “Christians.”  Everything I have read concerning the matter, points in that direction. 

As a citizen of the United States of America, I’m thankful for, and hold dear, the freedoms I have guaranteed by the Constitution.  I believe that even without those freedoms, I would continue to expose the Anthanasian Creed as a false doctrine.  As one included in God’s plan of salvation, by and thru Messiah Yeshua’s shed blood on a cross, I’m set on preaching the gospel of Jesus Christ and, according to [Scripture].

I don’t know about you but if I was asked to choose between preaching the gospel of Jesus Christ and defending the Constitution of the United States of America, someone is going to hear about the events leading up to and including, Yeshua’s death burial and resurrection.

God Bless.

"The God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ"

“That you may with one mind and with one mouth glorify the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ.” Romans 15:6 (NKJV)

In the precious and beautiful name of Messiah Yeshua “Jesus,” greetings.

While listening to the local “Christian” radio station I heard, “The bible can’t do anything for you until you pick it up.”  The speaker on the radio is a follower of the Anthanasian Creed and believes, no one can be saved unless they believe “the Son is God.”

If you believe the person rejecting the doctrine of the “Trinity” is condemned to hell’s fire, you’re a follower of the Anthanasian Creed.  If it be the case there are a couple of things you should consider doing, stop [picking up] and [listening to] that which is linked [to] the Anthanasian Creed.  There’s no [Biblical] evidence of anyone having to believe it for anything, let alone to be saved. 

Prior to the Anthanasian Creed surfacing, becoming doctrine of the Catholic Church in 325-AD, “the Son is God” isn’t.  Without “the Son is God” being birthed in 325-AD, there’d be no doctrine of the “Trinity.”

Knowing the [Bible] exposes the Anthanasian Creed for what it is, a false doctrine, keeps me from having to be concerned about having to believe [or else] “the Son is God” to be saved, the creeds false method of salvation. 

You’ll find followers of that creed, leaning on the teachings of those surfacing well after the last entry of the New Testament which occurred near the end of the first century.  This keeps them from seeing the [Biblical] evidence proving the Anthanasian Creed is a false doctrine.

Jesus said to him, “Have I been with you so long, and yet you have not known Me, Philip? He who has seen Me has seen the Father; so how can you say, ‘Show us the Father’?” John 14:9 (NKJV)

Take John 14:9 for example, followers of the Anthanasian Creed will tell you Jesus claimed God when He said, “He who has seen Me has seen the Father.”

Not that anyone has seen the Father, except He who is from God; He has seen the Father.” John 6:46 (NKJV) 

Unless Jesus was hidden behind a rock when He said “Not that anyone has seen the Father” in John 6:46, He was seen by someone within hearing distance of His voice.

If you should choose to look at John 14:9 in your [Bible], read just a few more verses following it.  You’d see Jesus wasn’t claiming to be God in John 14:9 if you do.  Proclaiming “the Father” God the [source] of the works being done by Jesus, is [exactly] what Jesus did in John 14:9.

Does anyone know the name of the person saying Jesus claimed to be God in John 14:9?  I’m not talking about the one that’s teaching it today, falsely I might add.  I’m looking for the [source], the individual responsible for my having to bring it up in the first place.  I can give the names of those showing why that false teaching shouldn’t have made its way out of the world of imagination, Peter Paul and John just to name a few. 

Take Romans 15:6 at the beginning of this post for example.  Would you say the writer of Romans 15:6, Paul, is encouraging anyone to believe he’s responsible for the Anthanasian Creeds “the Son is God”?  I don’t think so, Paul’s “the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ” in Romans 15:6 is plain, simple, and easy to read.

A person can pick the bible up as often as they like.  If they’re relying on someone’s interpretations of it, or their own for that matter, they should think twice before opening it.  God’s plan of salvation is plain, simple, and easy to follow.  Messiah Yeshua is the way, the truth, and the life (John 14:6), follow Him.

Whoever confesses that Jesus is the Son of God, God abides in him, and he in God.  1 John 4:15 (NKJV)

As a firm believer [in] Messiah Yeshua it is my obligation to tell you.  The person confessing “Jesus is the Son of God,” shouldn’t teach interpretations of [Scripture] as [Biblical] truths.  The person confessing “Jesus is the Son of God” preaches the gospel of Jesus Christ, according to [Scripture].  They need to see man’s interpretation of [Scripture] as hearsay at best which is [exactly] what they are.

The Anthanasian Creed [is] the source of having to believe [or else] “the Son is God” to be saved.  Even the follower of that creed admits to not being able to find the words “the Son is God” in the [Bible].  By doing so, they’re admitting to having to seek elsewhere, outside the inspired word of God, for its existence.   

The Anthanasian Creed has absolutely nothing to do with the path leading to the kingdom of God.  One may have to believe it to become a “member” of an earthly institution called “church”, but a true follower of Messiah Yeshua will not.

No matter how hard one tries to link the Anthanasian Creeds having to believe [or else] “the Son is God” to the [Bible], it’ll be [Biblical] truths exposing it a false teaching.

God bless.
