God give us stream of living water. From these living water,
it gives you healthy tree of knowledge that
grow and grow. Multiplying branches after branches.
Woke up early in the morning. Still think about how one should be very careful when using Bible quotes to support a personal understanding. Many times when we are interpreting certain passage in bible, we use our logical thinking to interprete bible because it is written in plain Engish. This is where we are most venerable to the lies and mislead by the Shadow of darkness. Satan is capable of putting thoughts when we are in complete obedience to our flesh (our intelligent), and bible passage can be interprete wrongly. The devil may put pride in a person “This new knowledge you gain is very important, you must preach to many people and they will praise you and you will gain fame by being able to give them deeper understanding.” The Shadow of Darkness is the spirit of seducing and distracts. Our Holy Spirit inspired the Author to accurately record the events in Bible and also for those who translated them into English. Likewise, we have to guard your soul. Complacency; which is an element of pride, only leave opening for the shadow of darkness to come in and influence. Let the understanding of bible be by revelations from our Holy Spirit (which is of Wisdom from God), in this way we are in union with God’s given message, 100% accuracy.
Book of Ecclesiastes writtened by King Solomon. Eccl 3. Everything has its time. Verse 7-8
“A time to tear, And a time to sew.
A time to keep silence, A time to speak.
A time to love, A time to hate;
A time of war, And a time of peace.”
These are the words from King Solomon who had immense wisdom from God Almighty and he proclaimed everything is VANITY!
“Do you think I came to bring peace on earth? No, I tell you, but divisions; They will be divided, father against son and son against father, mother against daughter and daughter against mother, mother-in-law against daughter-in-law and daughter-in-law against mother-in-law.” Lk 12:51-53 “a man’s enemies will be the members of his own household” (Matt 10:36)
This same message is being preached by: Dr. Peter Wagner 16-17 Aug 2008, Rev. Dr. Phil Pringle 27 March 2009
Is our Holy Spirit telling us something? Isn’t Lord Jesus; prince of Peace and yet he talked about war, division and own family member is a man’s enemies? God do not like people who are lukewarm. Rev 3:16 “So then, because you are lukewarm, that you are neither cold nor hot. I will vomit you out of My mouth.” This passage means, people who are lukewarm will be throw out of Kingdom of Heaven. Some people may not understand this. What do you mean that being vomited is being thrown out of Heaven? Take a look at John 15:4 “Abide in Me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, unless it abides in the vine, neither can you, unless you abide in Me.” So the word ME means Kingdom of Heaven. If you receive Kingdom of heaven humble as child then the Holy spirit will abide in you and you shall have your forehead stamped with the Seal of God. People who are ambivalent minded too will be vomited out. It is the attitude towards God, especially with regard to messages spoken by people. How can one stay lukewarm? Neither accept it nor reject it? When we are given the knowledge that there is NO HELL but only Hades. (Latest news: I was told by someone who had attended BS that he was taught that Hell is empty, so it is The Woman giving wrong doctrine.) Words of Knowledge came upon me “Many authors will be discredited” I am already so used to being pushed by our Holy Spirit to do something that I quickly sent an urgent email to many, hopefully to rectify. In the eyes of God, he is looking at things from one extreme to another extreme. You just can’t limit God nor contain God by trying to negotiate unknowingly to give youself flexiblility to do things, the way you wanted to be done. Is there God in your heart to take full control of your life, willingly?
If there is hate, the other end, there is love.
If there is war, the other end, there is peace.
If there is death,the other end, there is life.
If there is Hell, the other end, there is Heaven.
If one don’t believe that there is existence of Hell, then might as well don’t believe there is Heaven.
Bible passage warned many times about the danger of entering Hell if one died without having received salvation (time has run out on the person). And many many books have been writtened about Hell.
I read a book, I borrowed from my Sister Laura by Mary K. Baxton. “A divine Revelation of Hell.” I had already read Choo Thomas’s book “Heaven is so Real” too. Both of them has been brought to Hell by our loving Lord Jesus. Both said the same thing. Lord Jesus still loved those people who are currently suffering in Hell, he was sorrowful and sobbed quietly when accompanied them to Hell.
And why must our Lord Jesus have to do that? He is already siting on the right hand side of the throne in Heaven comfortably, there is no need for him to bring people to witness the terrible place, Hell. He patiently explained to those whom he brought there “I want you to record down all the things you had seen in Hell, so that people will know that there is this place call Hell. I don’t want anyone to come here to suffer. All are given a chance to receive salvation, but all these people had ended up here because time has run out on them. They died.”
Be careful, our flesh are weak. Without the Holy Spirit guiding us, the spirit of seducer (shadow of darkness) will mislead us into interpreting bible wrongly.
When the rich man look up and saw Lazarus in Abraham’s bosom, it does not mean that immediately upstair there is a place call bosom (Bosom means chest or part of garment that covers the chest in dictionary). God is the creator of Universe. Is it not possible for him to cause the rich man who is in Hell to see this vision of Abraham in Heaven with Lazarus? Even God make the Sun stood still so that Isreal can win the war Joshua 10:13″So the sun stood still, And the moon stopped, Till the people had revenge upon their enemies.”
Then I’ll have to say that the “‘Lake of fire” is the FINAL HELL. If there is Cold, there is Hot too. Then there is in between called Lukewarm. So there is Hell, there is also Heaven and there is a in between place of Hades, the place of temporary holding place for the dead who are not yet decided on going to Hell or to come back to life, pending decision by God? Place of Hades, we agreed on the same understanding. It is universal understanding. Chinese believe that place Hades is between the surface of earth and below earth surface. So that’s why in chinese believe (I am chinese too), the “lost” souls are wondering on earth and there are people who are on the verge of death saw Hades came and dragged them into grave, shoel and be lost forever into hell to accompany with Satan in Hell (for those who didn’t receive salvation).
Is there no rectification for wrong situation? Yes, Lord Jesus can forgive all our sins, but we take things for granted and likes to swept things under the carpet as though nothing have happened. It is not for anyone to judge but all of us are accountable for our action. While we are still alive, we still have time, Lord Jesus though forgive our sins and wrong doing, like wrong teaching. He wants us to have fellowship with our neighbouring brothers and sister, make good what is bad and renew relationship that had turned sour. Luke 5:36 “No one puts a piece from a new garment on an old one; otherwise the new makes a tear, and also the piece that was taken out of the new does not match the old.” He wants us to use our Holy Spirit to helps us bring our things from our “Secret room” (the dangerous, sub-concious self) and offered to the altar as burning sacrifice. So that HE can teach us what to do with regards to all those THINGS FROM OUR SECRET ROOM. Rev 7:3 “Do not harm the earth, the sea, or the trees till we have sealed the servants of our God on their foreheads.” Rev14:1 “Then I looked, and behold, a lamb standing on Mount Zion, and with Him 144,000, having His Father’s name written on their foreheads.’ This pasage is more of spiritual marking then a physical one. (taken for Debate on Tattoo) In Chinese believe, Thai people and many other culture. The foreheads is the most important part of the human body. For chinese, it is the area where one recieve the light. That is why in olden day they worn hat which had a piece of jade infront to ward off evil. For Thai, it is an offence for anyone to touch their forehead because it is the highest respectful part of the body. Anyone sitting crossed leg with the toe pointing at any Thai people’s forehead greatly offended them. So it is NOT the physical marking of forehead. What the bible meant is that the servant of God, had their thinking and most important part of the body being sealed to serve God only. Whereas those receiving the mark of “666” is worshipping the beast. I had already had the meaning of the revelation of the meaning of “666”, will be writing a book on it. Someone wrote about it which is quite the same revelation that I had received, about a month ago. Click About the Mark on the forehead 666 We all knew that many events that was make to happened in the Bible is now a Spiritual representation of things.
SPIRITUAL WARFARE IS REAL, we have to be a warrior of God to be able to fight and win this war in the 4th dimension before it becomes a reality in the 3rd dimension where once happened it is very difficult to rectified, almost impossible to turn around lest reverse it. The Satan has been the King of all lies, Hell is make for him and he is trying his best to covered up or smoke out Hell to deceived people into believing there is no terrible place Hell, only hades. But Lord Jesus gave us the Holy Spirit who bring into us Gift of discernment and Wisdom.

A man possessed by man evil spirits received deliverance.
Mark 5:4-8 (New International Version)
For he had often been chained hand and foot, but he tore the chains apart and broke the irons on his feet. No one was strong enough to subdue him. Night and day among the tombs and in the hills he would cry out and cut himself with stones. When he saw Jesus from a distance, he ran and fell on his knees in front of him. He shouted at the top of his voice, “What do you want with me, Jesus, Son of the Most High God? Swear to God that you won’t torture me!” For Jesus had said to him, “Come out of this man, you evil spirit!”
Mark 5:11-13 ” A large herd of pigs was feeding on the nearby hillside. The demons begged Jesus, “Send us among the pigs; allow us to go into them.” He gave them permission, and the evil spirits came out and went into the pigs. The herd, about two thousand in number, rushed down the steep bank into the lake and were drowned.”
Can you imagine! Two thousand evil spirits had gotten into this man named Legion. It is true, if one is not careful, having pride, giving in to doing evils and believed instead of resisting false and wrong teachings, will leave openings for these evil spirits to come in. My spiritual daughter from Indonesia said that her husband (just married) had many evil spirits gotten out of him when he was baptised by the Holy Spirit during deliverance (received salvation in mid 2008), because he studied Black Magic. Likewise, be discerning and careful with games and movie we watch, you don’t want these bad things to come into you. So, it is NOT EASY for evil to overtake us, we are being created in the likeness of God and satan needs to have many evil spirits to enter into us in order to completely convert us into going against God. Remembered Judas? Ultimate large opening, Satan entered into him and he betrayed Jesus. Luke 23:3 “Then entered Satan into Judas surnamed Iscariot, being of the number of the twelve.” So have faith, children of God, it is not that easy to turn bad unless one had lost faith and leave openings for evils to come in. Praise the Lord! We need only one powerful spirit, Our Holy Spirit (given by the grace of Lord Jesus to had died for us), to drive out all the evil spirits. So it is not easy for these evil to overcome you, it needs many of these evil spirits to convert you into turning against God. That is the reason why we have to have constant renewal of mind, seek repentence and be in prayer always to resist temptations. Hallelujah! We need only one, our Holy Spirit to defeat ALL OF THEM in Jesus name!
Addon notes 22/8/2010
Decided to add more example to make this article more complete.
Example 1 – Preaching about Divorce. (Please note that these are just example, not true happenings)
A Pastor was counciling a group of divorcees because they felt rejected and hurt by a sermon spoken by another pastor on stage in a condemning manner. “God hate divorce! Couples seeking divorce is not right with God.” So after hearing their situation, perhaps he concluded that there are good ground for being divorced. He decided to preach a message that would bring comfort to the divorcees. He selected certain Bible passage to support his sermon theme that “Divorce is alright, Lord Jesus forgives and cleanse the sins away.” That certainly makes divorcees feel more acceptable by the church but guess what happened?
The divorce rate in his church has gone up. Certainly, this subject matter requires more than just understanding and quoting from selected Bible verses, it must be explained in total uncondemning way with the guidance from the Holy Spirit. It must emcompass situation where divorce is deemed as righteous with God. I will cover this topic in another article.
Example 2 – Preaching about Tattoo. (Please note that these are just example, not true happenings)
A Pastor noticed that some Church members tends to avoid sitting with people having tattoos. So he wanted to preach a message that makes his church member understanding and accept Christians who have tattoos. Most of those with tattoos were formally gangster. So, he wrote notes to show that it is alright to have tattoos, he quote Bible passage such as mentioned in the Book of Revelation “sealed the servants of our God on their foreheads.” The spiritual meaning of sealing the foreheads had been changed to physical marking like tattoos. With other Bible passage, the pastor said that it is alright to tattoo. Then what happened? A mother came storming into the Pastor’s office one morning and showed him the picture of her daughter having tattoo of thorn and roses at her back shoulder. The mother said angrily to the pastor “I had successfully convinced my school going daughter not to tattoo her back for more than a year, then last week she came back trying to concealed her tattoo. I asked her why she disobeyed me. Then, she defended her right and showed me Bible passage that the Bible said tattoo is allowed.”
While this is a good intention of the pastor to tell the member that they should accept people with tattoo but the consequences of twisting the true meaning in the bible resulted in problems.
Example 3 – Twisting the meaning of Bible to fit the theory.
Some even say that certain Bible passage was intepreted wrongly, then they would use Greek or Hebrew original text to justify their doctrine.
In the first place, Bible were being translated to English and many other languages so that the Gospel can reach nations and the four corner of the earth. Just because because there are some disagreement in personal doctrine (or source from other Author), the individual tends to bring in Greeks or Hebrews text to justify their doctrine right and impose on others.
But DO NOT! Bring in Greeks or Hebrews text to discredit Authors who had translated Bible to English, KJV being the most accurate. All the translators had been inspired by our Holy Spirit, so speaking against the translated Bible may tentamount to blephemies.
- Lazarus in Abraham’s bosom. (Luke 16:22) – In dictionary, bosom means chest or part of garment that covers the chest in dictionary. But the author insists that “the place of rest, set apart for the departed spirits of the righteous, is here called “Abraham’s bosom.” The reason why the author have to put in his theory that there was place beneath the earth that is a common holding area for the spirit after death called “Sheol” or “Hades”. Then the author found himself in disagreement and to support his theory, he separate the them in two places, place of ‘Comfort” and place of “torment”.
- And the author insisted the final eternal fire is Hell. So now his theory and words is speaks against the spoken words of Lord Jesus’s warning about Hell.
With his kind of theory many question cannot be answered (remember Hell is make for Satan and his dark angels) :-
1. Where is the spirits of those people who never hear the Gospel before, esp tribes people?
2. Lord Jesus mentioned that certain people were given second chance, where do these “second chance spirit”goes to?
3. Similar happening as written by authors who was brought to Hell by Lord Jesus himself, why Lord Jesus have to leave them for awhile to let them torment by the demons and then came back to rescue them later?
Be careful my friend, what is the use if you can use this set of theory to teach people but lost your soul by blesphemies against Father Lord Jesus? Our Holy Spirit had taught me well with HIS wisdom, and what I get is BIBLICAL TRUTH!
End notes :
Conclusion by King Solomon
Eccl 1:2 “All is Vanity.”
Eccl12:14 “For God will bring every work into judement. Including every secret thing, Whether good or evil.”
People really need to have the ability to see things and understanding in much greater depth and more broadly. Some maybe provoked after reading because it appears to them that they can’t attend Academic Bible school because of the “Risk of not getting knowledge from our H.S.” In the first place the Bible was writtened by people, Luke, Mattew, Mark and John as they were inspired by our Holy Spirit and the whole Bible from Genesis to Revelations was inspired by our Holy Spirit. So Churches set up Bible classes, the teacher or preacher would had been also inspired by our Holy Spirit to convey the messages of God, catering to individual’s understanding. What this article emphazed strongly is that ALL must engage our Holy Spirit to be their personal Helper and Teacher always even while attending B.S. or SOT.
