Apologies of Jedidiah

The apologies of Jedidiah to the professing believers of Jesus the Anointed One and to those who may listen…

Pre-Wording

It is written: “Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil; who put darkness for light, and light for darkness; who put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!” [Isaiah 5:20]. The Word of God, my Lord, has also said: “See to it therefore that the light which is in you is not darkness.” [Luke 11:35]. A warning that many do not understand, over look and are now unwittingly victims of. This is an apology, a defence and explanation concerning accusations to the churches and believers, which they have upbraided as heresy.

I was told no one will listen, no one will hear, for we are in the last hour, it is the end, and the hearts of man have become hardened in their sins, transgressions and pride. However as commanded by Jesus the Anointed One, I am writing one final time, one final document to the professing believers of this generation and to any who will listen. I am writing, as commanded, the apologies regarding the indictments God has sent to His people, the utterance of the LORD which men of this generation have found offensive; the utterance of the LORD which men have accused of being erroneous and error and, in turn, have rejected and reproved the Word of the LORD and His Grace. I am writing concerning those who have taken offense because they have distorted the Words of the LORD and believe the teachings of men to be the teachings of God, and they war with the Word of God and His purpose. I am writing to the many who do not know that they have made themselves His enemies, agreeing with the reproach of the LORDS correction of sin, righteousness and judgment. I was told no one will listen, no one will hear, for it is the end, the hearts have been hardened; it is the end, where it is written: “yet they repented not of their deeds” [Revelation 9:21, 16:9, 11]. I have prayed that at least one will hear and repent, and so I was commanded to write, and I now write.

If you are reading this, I ask that you read all of it to the end, in spite of how angry, frightened, emotional or uncomfortable you may feel, I ask you to judge righteous judgement and not by feelings nor opinions. I plead with you, I ask that you take everything back to Jesus the Anointed One; take back every word, every doctrine and every Scripture reference. Seek Him for the complete truth, denying yourself of your own understanding and previous knowledge, for we live in the times of great deception and the strong delusions, where He has said few will find the path to life, and today many think they are on it, others do not care. This is a serious concern and a serious wake up call to all believers, for judgement begins with the house of the LORD [1 Peter 4:17], it begins with those of His Own house, it begins with the professing believers, His own people who call Him Lord, Savior and God, those who profess the name of Jesus the Anointed One, those who call themselves slaves of Christ, that is, Christians; many of whom have become offended in the accusations and corrections He has sent and have called the Truth corruption and have severely reproved the Truth as if it were lies. They do this because they believe the teachings of men who have changed the Laws and Teachings and Covenant of God; they believe evil to be good and good to be evil, they exchanged the light for darkness, calling the darkness light, then defending that darkness as if it is the true light. How then can one be saved who believes the darkness they live in is the light of salvation that destroys darkness? How then can one be saved who believes they are saved while one is yet in twice the bondage? How can a soul be saved if they already believe they are saved; will they not reject the true salvation thinking they already have it? Will they not war against it, thinking they are sided with it? This is the state of the many people of God today, many are in darkness and believe it to be light, almost everyone. Please take this seriously.

Here are the apologies of Jedidiah and the parable which the LORD has given him to write; may the Light break forth through the darkness, even the darkness that many call light:

The Apology to the Pastors, Church Goers and the Believers who still sin:

Learn the parable of the Apologies of the Apologist; the apologies concerning God’s indictment of His people in five points; His accusation, the very Word of God that the believers of this generation have found offense in and severely reproves His words charging them as corruption, heresy, error and evil. They have done this because they have invested in their own teachings about Him as if they were His teachings. Here is the explanation regarding the Truth in which they have taken offense and upbraided…

~***~

Four men sat at a desk in a church office, they are meeting regarding concerns that have arose regarding a particular member in their church. The name of one is Church Pastor, another Church Goer, another Believer, and another Apologist:

CHURCH PASTOR: I have been hearing that you have made some very serious judgements and claims about the church and have been speaking some very controversial and perverse doctrines, Apologist, even another gospel. I have heard that others in the church have spoken to you, but you do not listen to them. I have also taken note that you have stopped fellowshipping with us for some time now, which is a concern to me, and I have heard you even tell others to do the same. Now we are having this meeting [Matthew 18:15-17].

I have been told: You have been preaching crazy doctrines and place yourself as judge, you claim (1) we can and must stop sinning completely. You claim (2) we can and must be perfect. You say that (3) we are not saved by Grace alone. And you say (4) people do not need me their Pastor, to teach them to know the LORD and His ways, they only need Jesus. You say (5) this church as well as myself and those following this ministry are all false and in danger of hell and the lake of fire. This is all heresy. It sows discord and confusion and is quite frankly, offensive.

Now because you are a member, I would like to know if you are preaching these things. Though I have heard you say some things to me before, which I questioned, it was not to this extent. I am now giving you room to explain yourself. I do not believe in taking action until speaking with the individual; Believer and Church Goer here with us are witnesses [Deuteronomy 17:6, 19:15, 2 Corinthians 13:1].

BELIEVER: I am your friend Apologist, yet it is true I have heard you say these things openly. Which I respect, but I do not believe they are right.

CHURCH GOER:I have heard you as well, I have spoken to you and you call me names when I challenge you and reprove you. You are very arrogant and self-righteous. You won’t listen.

CHURCH PASTOR: So please do explain your defense.

APOLOGIST: Church Pastor, it is true, all of what you have said that you have heard is true. In fact it is greater than what you have heard, for I have not said these things about you and your church alone, but every pastor of the religion of Christianity and their churches and their ministries; they are false. It is true, dear pastor, for I do speak these things and, in my defense, I tell you I speak them in fear that you all will die in your sins, and you will hear Him who is Eternal say to you on that day, “I never knew you, depart from me, you workers of iniquity.” [Matthew 7:22-23]. I have tried to warn you and speak to you as a child would to his own father in respect of the Scriptures [1 Timothy 5:1, 19], however you did not take heed; and worse, over time, you have exposed yourself as well as those following you as false, leading people to another Anointed One. Now I am no longer a member under your ministry, nor in bondage to you as my elder, so I have freedom in the Spirit to speak according to the utterance the LORD OF SPIRITS has given me and I will use this freedom as the LORD permits.

CHURCH PASTOR: You have no right to judge any of us, how can you say, “You are all false and all in danger of hell and the lake of fire”? This is pride, Apologist. You accuse me of being false, as well as our ministry here and all the pastors and churches in the world? What an outrageous claim. On what ground do you stand with such accusations?

APOLOGIST: Jesus said He will build His church [Matthew 16:18]. So I ask you Church Pastor, is the church that you are currently running the church that Jesus builds? For He said He is the one who builds His church, not you nor any other man. How much of what you do has Jesus Himself taught you concerning His church? What has He personally trained you in so that through you He can build His church?

CHURCH PASTOR: He inspires me every Sunday to give the Word, to encourage and lead His people.

APOLOGIST: To encourage and lead His people into what? Into obedience to Him?

CHURCH PASTOR: Of course!

Regarding Ceasing From Sin

APOLOGIST: Church Pastor, I will begin my explanation of the words I have spoken starting with my statements regarding ceasing from sin. If I may ask you sir, do you still sin? And also, please answer me this: how do you know you really know Jesus the Anointed One?

CHURCH PASTOR: Everyone sins Apologist, no one is perfect, though we are striving for perfection. I know I know Him, because I pray to Him and He has me shepherd His flock, I have been doing so for many years now; you know this. I have a relationship with Him and have been following Him for most of my life. I was raised in a Christian family, attended Bible College and got my degree, I have done a lot of missionary work in other countries previous to becoming Pastor of this assembly. I know Jesus quite well.

APOLOGIST: Church Pastor, this is what I am speaking about, this is why I speak what I speak. Your response is complete hypocrisy and proves your perversion and falsehood. You are ignorant of the Scriptures: And by this we know that we know Him, if we guard His commands. The one who says, “I know Him,” and does not guard His commands, is a liar, and the truth is not in him. [1 John 2:3-4]. Everyone staying in Him does not sin. Everyone sinning has neither seen Him nor known Him. [1 John 3:6]. According to the Scriptures, you are a liar and the truth is not in you, you have not come to know Jesus because you are still sinning, by your own confession. You yourself admit you do not believe we can stop sinning. So how then can you say you know Jesus, if those who still sin do not know Him for real? That is what the Book of Books says. Do you not believe this?

CHURCH PASTOR: If we say we are without sin we are liars and the truth is not in us!

APOLOGIST: Church Pastor, do you believe that the Apostle John was an idiot or suffered a mental illness? Do you think he would clearly say those who sin do not know Jesus, and those who do not guard His commandments and say they know Him are liars and the truth is not in them, but then turn around and say that we cannot be without sin, and that if we say we are without sin, we are liars and the truth is not in us? Do you know he said Jesus takes away our sin [1 John 3:5]? John made it clear those who know Jesus do not sin… You have just heard this with your own ears and now, again, you are in hypocrisy, twisting the Scripture 1 John 1:8 to justify sin; for John said: And this is the message which we have heard from Him and announce to you, that God is light and in Him is no darkness at all. If we say that we have fellowship with Him, and walk in darkness, we lie and are not doing the truth. But if we walk in the light as He is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus Anointed One His Son cleanses us from all sin. If we say that we have no sin, we are misleading ourselves, and the truth is not in us. If we confess our sins, He is trustworthy and righteous to forgive us the sins and cleanse us from all unrighteousness. If we say that we have not sinned, we make Him a liar, and His Word is not in us. [1 John 1:5-10]. All unrighteousness is sin [1 John 5:17].

It is true indeed Church Pastor if you say you are without sin then, yes, you are a liar, because you still sin. But if you have HIV and you are cleansed of HIV, do you still have HIV? If you have HIV and have not been cleansed but say you do not have HIV are you not then a liar? Are you not then calling God who said He is faithful and righteous to forgive and cleanse you of HIV a liar because He has identified it in you and made room to remove it? If one has been cleansed of HIV by God, would that one not then be a liar who says they still have it [John 8:55]? How can one who does sin say they have fellowship with God who has no fellowship with sin? How can one who does sin say they are abiding in a God who has no sin in Him? If that was true, then by your sin, God would have sin in Him. All who sin are not abiding in God and need to be cleansed so they might abide in Him. Those who have been cleansed are expected to stop rolling around and obey the Word; abide in the Word, so they do not get HIV again and abide in Jesus.

CHURCH PASTOR: Listen boy, we must repent, we do have to try our best not to sin, but we will always struggle with the flesh and at some point mess up. I do not believe we should sin, I am just telling you that no one will ever be perfect in this life and be at a place where they never sin at all. Paul struggled with sin, he said the things he wanted to do are what he did not do, and the things he did not want to do are what he did do, it was no longer him that did it because it was the sin in him that did it. He was sold under sin [Romans 7:14-20]. We all go through this.

APOLOGIST: You said “I am just telling you that no one will ever be perfect in this life and be at a place where they never sin at all,” but John says this: Everyone having been born of God does not sin, because His seed stays in him, he cannot sin, because he has been born of God. [1 John 3:9]. So John must have been a liar then, because he said those born of God do not sin and cannot sin. I do not believe John was a liar. It is clear Church Pastor there are things John knew that he did not write, that you do not know, things that we can only receive from the Holy Spirit [John 16:7-15]. Because John said it plainly a couple times, those born of God do not sin [1 John 5:18]. He did not say they sin less, he said they “do not sin”, meaning they are sinless.

It is true Church Pastor, Paul did say what you quoted and yes we can all relate, but nowhere did Paul say that he stayed like this. You quoted that he was sold under sin [Romans 7:14], in the chapter before he said that you are a servant to whom you yield yourself too [Romans 6:15-16], and Jesus sets us free from slavery to sin [John 8:33-36]. So Romans 7:14 is no excuse to stay a slave to sin, nor does the rest of what you quoted justify staying in sin. What you quoted to falsely justify staying in sin, is actually Paul explaining the experience of his struggle when he was “carnal”, what living according to the flesh is like after receiving knowledge of the Word of God, His commandments and truth [Romans 7:21-25]. In the very next chapter Paul clearly explains we cannot live like this [Romans 8:5-8, 12-14]. He even explained how not to: that we must put to death the evil deeds of the body and not live according to the flesh, those who are sons of God are led by the Spirit of God [Romans 8:13-14]. The Spirit of God does not lead us to sin, so if we are led by Him we will not sin.

John also stated in a similar manner: Jesus destroys sin and that those born of God do not sin [1 John 3:8-9]. Romans 7 does not justify staying in sin, nor does it teach we cannot stop sinning. Peter warned us of people distorting Paul’s words as well as the other scriptures; distorting them to their own destruction [2 Peter 3:15-16]; like what you are doing here. There is not a single verse of Scripture that supports staying in sin or never overcoming, the Scriptures testify the Word of God destroys sin and on the last day He will destroy sinners who refused to repent [Revelations 19:13-21, John 12:47-48, Psalms 37:9-11, 20]. All have sinned and fall short of the Glory of God, but it says “have” sinned, past tense [Romans 3:23]. Peter testified those who suffer in the flesh have “ceased” from sin [1 Peter 4:1-2]; ceased means to stop. He and Jude also said it is possible to “never fall” [2 Peter 1:10, Jude 1:24], which again is another way of saying “cannot sin” [1 John 3:9]. Not everyone still sins, only few find the path to life and stop sinning [Matthew 7:13-14, Proverbs 14:12, 16:25], that’s why they are hard to find. Jesus is not pleased with those who continue to sin because He destroys sin through His teachings, there is no reason to continue sinning if we follow Jesus. The testimony of the Scriptures makes it clear we must stop sinning, and that we can do so through Jesus, this is why He appeared. Those who continue sinning will perish. You are in great danger Church Pastor along with those who follow you and believe as you do. Those who continue to sin will die the second death.

CHURCH PASTOR: We all sin Apologist, even ignorantly and even in our thoughts. It is our nature, we are born like this.

APOLOGIST: You do realise you are now currently defending sin, you are finding excuse to continue in what God has commanded us not to do and what Jesus came to destroy. Church Pastor we are given a new nature [2 Peter 1:4] and are to put to death the old nature, it is gone through obedience to the Word of God who destroys it as I mentioned previously [Romans 8:12-13, 1 John 3:8]. When we are in Christ we do not sin, because we are a new creature, the old is gone [2 Corinthians 5:17, 1 John 3:6]. Even if we were born with sin, we must be born again, that is, born from above [John 3:3, 7]. There is no excuse to continue in sin, God is able.

As for sinning ignorantly, the Holy Spirit was sent to reprove the world of sin, righteousness and judgement [John 16:8], we are responsible for what He has convicted us of, what we know to be right and wrong, and He is faithful to show those who truly have a desire to do what is right [Matthew 5:6]. And as for sinning in thought, Paul instructed to hold every thought captive and bring it into obedience to Christ; Jesus gives us weapons to do so [1 Corinthians 10:4-5]. The situation is many do not want to stop sinning, they are like guilty criminals saying they cannot find the police. They are not really looking for the police, because this would mean their crime spree they love ends [John 3:19-21].

Regarding Being Perfect Like God

CHURCH PASTOR: No one is perfect Apologist, your doctrine sets a standard that is impossible to achieve. You make void Jesus’ work on the cross. If we can stop sinning and be perfect, then why did Jesus die on the cross for our sins? Your doctrine is a doctrine of error and a stumble block to true believers. You are preaching against the cross and putting weights on people they cannot bear.

APOLOGIST: Jesus died on the cross to end the Old Covenant and begin the New. In doing so He made a way for all of our sins that we have done to be washed away. It is one of the great benefits of this New Covenant, among many others. But it is written that for those who continue to sin, knowing sin is sin, there is no more sacrifice for those sins [Hebrews 10:26]. We must repent, this means to turn away from those sins and now do the new way Jesus teaches us; we must stop sinning when we come to the knowledge of the Truth. The work on the cross has no effect on sins that a believer knows they are doing and continues to do while knowing the truth, because this is deliberate sin. The work on the cross deals with ignorant sins [Hebrews 9:7], and sins that have been repented of, that is past sins, not with sins one is continuing in while knowing they are sin. If it did, then there would be no need for a call to repentance, nor a need to warn anyone, as Jesus warned His believers in Revelation 2-3. Jesus said to repent or perish [Luke 13:5]. If you know sin is sin and you are still doing it, you need to repent of the lies you believe and do the truth, those sins are not covered till you repent.

True believers obey Jesus, whoever believes will not perish but have ever lasting life, but it also says: “He who believes in the Son possesses everlasting life, but he who does not obey the Son shall not see life, but the wrath of God remains on him.” [John 3:16, 39]. The phrase “does not obey” is what the original Greek texts says, the word there is: apeitheō [G544], this is a belief that holds to obedience, not just belief alone, as in: pisteuō [G4100], which found in John 3:16. Those who truly believe obey His Words, they follow Him and will not perish [John 10:27-28], they do not disobey, if they do, they learn from their mistake get up and start obeying. Sin is disobedience. The Wrath of God is coming for the children of disobedience [Ephesians 5:6, Colossians 3:6]. If you are still sinning, you are still in disobedience and technically do not actually believe on to salvation. What I speak points people to believe and obey, what you teach is error and a stumble block for it leads people to not believe the truth and continue in sin which is error and death.

As for no one being perfect Church Pastor, this is a lie. There are at least three different types of perfect. There is perfect as in being fully formed, like a baby who has been born [Psalms 139:15-16] the Hebrew word gôlem [H1564] is often translated as imperfect or unformed. Then there is perfect as in learning and maturing, doing what is expected of you morally [Hebrews 5:12-14], the Greek word here is teleios [G5046] is often translated as perfect or mature. Then there is perfect as in complete, finishing the race of humanity which ends with the resurrection and glorification [Philippians 3:11-12, Luke 13:32, Hebrews 5:9], the Greek word here is teleioō [G5048] and is often translated as perfect or complete. You have merged all three definitions into the last one. You think no one can be perfect because you only see perfect as the resurrection and glorification, especially ignoring moral perfection, which is mandatory now. The perfect you hear me speak of is the second one, moral perfection, this is salvation impacting and a prerequisite for completion. We are expected to be perfect in doing what we are taught by God, through living like this we come to the perfection of completion which is the resurrection and glorification. In the end, it is the righteous, who are perfect who will inherit the Earth, the sinners will be cut off [Proverbs 2:21-22]. So then how can no one be perfect if the perfect inherit the earth? You are ignorant of the Scriptures. [Proverbs 11:5, 20].

CHURCH PASTOR: You are twisting scripture now. Perfection is what we receive when we are glorified, when Jesus returns, and that is final; no one can be perfect now in this life. No one. Only Jesus is perfect. You are twisting definitions and scriptures to suit your corrupt doctrines.

APOLOGIST: Are you serious Church Pastor? You say what I speak is corrupt, yet what I speak about is complete and utter obedience to Jesus. You say I twist the scriptures, though the Scriptures do not support your arguments: “no one can stop sinning completely”, [1 John 3:9] nor does the Scripture support “No one is perfect, only Jesus is perfect”, [1 Corinthians 2:6]. Look for it yourself, you cannot find it. What you teach is: “Repent of sin, but you will never be able to stop sinning.” You teach: “Strive for perfection, but you will not get it now though you are trying.” You teach: “We are to be Christ like, but no one can be perfect and righteous like Him, if you say you are, then you’re a liar!” [1 John 2:5-6, 3:7]. You tell them “Go and do, but you will never be able to do”. You teach double-mindedness, hypocrisy and unreasonable doctrines that lead people to start a race and say they will not be able to run in the way to finish it, but try to anyway; so what’s the point in starting the race? And sadly you never even teach them how to properly start the race, let alone how to run it. If they did start properly they would learn how to run in the way needed to finish. The only people who start races they cannot finish are failures [1 Corinthians 9:24-27, Luke 14:28-29], this is what you set people up to do, to live lives of sin and not victory in Christ, and you call this victory. This is corrupt, twisted and wicked!

I have outlined what the Scriptures say as well as showed you the different definitions of perfect. Moral perfection, the perfection you deny, is mandatory to receive the perfection you want: the glorification. Those who are morally perfect mature in doing the Words Jesus says, through this they continue to grow and they receive the resurrection and glorification, they come to completion. The only way to the glorified perfection is the way of moral perfection, the way of righteousness. Even David understood moral perfection: Blessed are the perfect in the way, who walk in the Torah of the LORD! Blessed are those who observe His witnesses, who seek Him with all the heart! Yea, they shall do no unrighteousness; they shall walk in His ways. [Psalms 119:1-3], the perfect here is tâmı̂ym [H8549] often translated as upright. And also to complete the exposure of your hypocrisy, Jesus the Anointed One Himself commanded us to be perfect: “Therefore, be perfect, as your Father in the heavens is perfect.” [Matthew 5:48]. This is a commandment, which means it is mandatory and if it is mandatory that means it is possible, if it’s possible that means there must be witnesses of the possibility: For it is written that Noah was perfect [Genesis 6:9], Abraham was perfect [Genesis 17:1-2], Job was perfect [Job 1:1, 8], Zechariah and Elizabeth the parents of John the Baptist were blameless in the law of God which is equal to being perfect [Luke 1:5-6], Paul was perfect and with him, others who were prefect [1 Corinthians 2:6, Philippians 3:15]. Obviously they all “have” sinned as it is written [Romans 3:23], so the perfection expected of us, and the perfection that they did attain, does not mean they had never sinned; it was that they grew to a place where they consistently obeyed what was expected of them in their generations. Though they all have fallen short, they came to a place of pleasing God. Their perfection was based on doing what God expected of them. It’s clear in each generation, there have been perfect people. In this generation and Covenant God no longer winks at certain things, He has a higher standard, He expects everyone to repent [Acts 17:30]. Both Covenants have the command to be perfect [Deuteronomy 18:13, Matthew 5:48], the expectations of this Covenant is much higher, because God has sent His Spirit to live in us and personally leads us teaches us and empowers us. There is no excuse, God is able.

God would not command us to do something we cannot do, or command us to do that which He is planning to do after we die. “We will only be perfect and not sin after we die” is a lie satan wants you to believe so you die in your sins, incomplete and found lacking in the LORD. We are expected to be blameless before He arrives as it is written: Keep back from every form of wickedness. And the God of peace Himself set you completely apart, and your entire spirit, and being, and body — be preserved blameless at the coming of our Lord Jesus the Anointed One! [1 Thessalonians 5:22-23].

People say they can do all things through Anointed One who strengthens them [Philippians 4:13], they say nothing is impossible with God [Luke 1:37, Matthew 19:26, Mark 10:27, 14:36], nothing is impossible with those who believe [Matthew 17:20, Mark 9:23], they say this for their businesses, schooling and life ambitions, but they refuse to believe they can stop sinning and be perfect as we are commanded, taught and empowered by Jesus the Anointed One. His purpose in appearing was to destroy sin, the devil’s work [1 John 3:8], but you say we cannot be perfect and stop sinning, with NO Scriptural support, and in your tradition THAT would be heresy and counted as erroneous and error; you are in hypocrisy. But you say I am a heretic because I side with the Scripture that clearly say we must stop sinning and be perfect as our Heavenly Father is perfect; as we are commanded. Do you not see how badly you have been deceived?

Many do not believe we can stop sinning nor be perfect, but your belief does not determine the truth, it determines how you live, what you do. Atheists do not believe there is a God, that does not mean there is no God, it just means they live like it. You do not believe we can stop sinning and be perfect, but that does not mean we can’t. All that means is that you will live like it is true and continue to sin and fall short. In the end, you will be disappointed, because you believed lies and not the truth. You live, defend and go after what you believe, what you believe determines your motives, not the truth.

The problem I have found with this subject of perfection, is that many make this complicated and they go with their feelings, they add more to the definition of “perfect” than what God expects. Church Pastor, moral perfection or maturity is simply doing what you know, doing what Jesus has taught you, and your expected to live up to what has been given to you. If you know sin is sin, then you are expected to stop those sins. If you do not know how or what to do, but know something needs to change, meaning you are struggling, doing the things you know you need to stop doing, and not doing what you know you are supposed to be do, then ask Him for help and obey what He says. Obedience to His Word is how we are saved.

Regarding Being Saved by Grace

CHURCH PASTOR: No, we are saved by grace through faith alone, not by works. Now you preach a works based gospel! Again heresy. You may know a lot of the Scriptures but you twist things around. We are not saved by our own works, we are saved by Jesus’ act on the cross, His work.

APOLOGIST: True Church Pastor we are saved by Grace through Faith and not of our own works. I understand that what I say at first sounds like I am saying we are saved by our own works, however this is not the case. We are not saved by our own works, however our works do have a major role in our salvation, for it is written to work out our salvation with fear and trembling [Philippians 2:12], it is also written that we will be judged by our works [Romans 2:5-8]. What we do is important, for God is not ignoring it but judging it. So what I say is not that we are saved by our own works, however, I do say is that our works are important to show if we are saved [Matthew 7:12, 12:33]. The question is whose works are we really doing when we are saved?

CHURCH PASTOR: Okay, let’s hear it. Explain.

APOLOGIST: We are saved by a Grace who teaches us [Titus 2:11-14], through faith that demands works of obedience to be true faith and not dead [James 2:14-26]. Faith is evidence of the unseen, the substance of what has not yet appeared [Hebrews 11:1], we have a hope of salvation which we do not yet see [Romans 8:24-25, Matthew 10:22, 24:13, 1 Thessalonians 5:8] and the evidence of our faith of that hope is our obedience, for salvation belongs to the obedient [Hebrews 5:9]. We are not saved by our own works because that is not of faith, it does not require us to hear the Word of God [Romans 10:17, Luke 11:28], the Word of God is the one who teaches us, for it is the Spirit of Grace who repeats what He hears from the Word of God, Jesus the Anointed One [John 16:12-15, John 14:26]. If we truly have Faith in God and His Word who is the Grace who teaches us, we obey Him. The results is that we do God’s Works, not our own. Many hear the Word of God but do not mix it with faith, so it is of no profit to them [Hebrews 4:2], they do not understand nor obey, so the Word is taken from them [Matthew 13:4, 19]. They then continue to do their own works, many of which were taught to them by men [Matthew 15:7-9, Jeremiah 17:5-10]. We can do nothing of ourselves, so in order to be saved we must follow Jesus, hence obey Him to be saved [John 15:4-5]. Church Pastor, if you are still sinning, then all that you do now is your own works, you are trying to be saved by your religious works according to your own knowledge and understanding, and same with those who follow you, and those you learned from. If you were not doing your own works, if you were obeying Jesus and have faith in His Grace who teaches, you will stop sinning. Jesus does not lead us into sin, and His Grace does not teach us to sin; obeying Him results in the opposite of sin.

CHURCH PASTOR: I follow the Scriptures, I study them and do my best to obey what they say.

APOLOGIST: That is your own works of your own understanding of the Scriptures, which have proven to fail you, for you still sin. Ironically, it is the Scriptures that say the following: “For if we sin willfully after we have received the knowledge of the truth, there remains no more sacrifice for sins, but a certain fearful looking for of judgment and fiery indignation, which shall devour the adversaries. He who despised Moses' Law died without mercy on the word of two or three witnesses. Of how much worse punishment do you suppose will he be thought worthy of punishment, the one who has trampled the Son of God, and who has counted the blood of the covenant with which he was sanctified an unholy thing, and has insulted the Spirit of Grace?” [Hebrews 10:26-29]. How can you say you are saved by Grace, when it says that if you sin willfully, knowing the truth, then you insult the very same Spirit of Grace?

It is an insult because Grace teaches us to stop sinning now in this life: “For the Grace of God has appeared, bringing salvation for all people, training us to renounce ungodliness and worldly passions, and to live self-controlled, upright, and godly lives in the present age” [Titus 2:11-12]. You know you are saved by Grace through Faith because your fruits show that you are in obedience to God, you stop sinning. Those who are trained by God will do the works of God because that is what they are trained by God to do. God does not sin. Those who sin are not trained by God, they are most likely trained by other sinning believers like yourself.

As for studying, this does not show you approved unto God. Have you not studied that verse? Or are you one of those who think the KJV Scriptures are perfect? It says to be diligent to show yourself approved [2 Timothy 2:15], how do you show yourself approved? Through faith which produces fruit of obedience [Hebrews 11:6, 8]. Jesus Himself rebuked the Pharisees because they searched the scriptures thinking they would find life, but they did not come to Him who is Life, of whom the Scriptures testified [John 5:39-40, 44-47]. Our righteousness needs to exceed that of the Pharisees who studied and taught the Scriptures in their day [Matthew 5:20]. Today people like you are worse than them because at least they preached and taught the true Law, it’s just they did not do it [Matthew 23:2-3]. Today you teach lawlessness and call it freedom and say try your best. Jesus can’t tell people to do what you do, for you admit you still sin, nor would He tell them to guard what you say, because you teach we cannot stop sinning… That is worse than the Pharisees’ righteousness, not exceeding it. They at least taught people the law that is good [Romans 7:12]… You on the other hand, do not teach people the commandments of Jesus nor how to be taught by Him so they may be like Him; without sin and perfect.

CHURCH PASTOR (begins to tremble).

Regarding God Being Our Only Teacher

APOLOGIST: This brings me to my next apology. You have accused me of preaching another gospel because I take people’s attention away from people and fellowship in church and direct their attention to God and God alone. Well then, I ask you, Church Pastor, what is the New Covenant about?

CHURCH PASTOR: It is about the death burial and resurrection of Jesus Anointed One. His work on the cross and our salvation through Him.

APOLOGIST: That’s how it starts but that is not the full Covenant? May I show you, Believer and Church Goer, a parable the LORD gave to me?

CHURCH PASTOR: (Sigh) Go ahead…

CHURCH GOER and BELIEVER (Nod yes).

APOLOGIST: I was taken to the court yard of a great church building and saw a prison fenced area, I walked through the fence door and saw a very large cross in the middle of the court and a large group of hearts gathered around this cross, crying out “Jesus, mercy and grace”, though they supported each other. On the cross there was a sign nailed to it that said “Our sins we cannot stop doing”. The hearts were callous though a bit fleshy, written on them was the word “Lawless” but it was wearing a mask called “Hypocrisy” and under that the words “doctrines of man”. Below them was one who looked like the one who was on the cross, they trampled him with their feet, as they continued to cry out for Jesus, asking for mercy and grace. Then blood would rain down on them from the heavens to wash them, but they would pick up clay from the ground and try and wipe the blood off with the clay and cover themselves in the clay, they treated the blood as if it was not clean. Then they would pick up the one whom they trampled and nail him back on the cross and pierce his side again. The rain of blood would stop and they would then commit vile acts of sin and wickedness before the cross and the one who hung on it. Then when they were done, they would pull him down off the cross again. They would also take down the sign, they would then refresh and update the sign and make it new again, then re-nail it to the cross, it continued to say “Our sins we cannot stop doing”. This cycle happened over and over again. As it continued the hearts would become more and more like stone, then eventually like hard iron, then I saw names of slander get written on them, they began to slander great slanders, insults and blasphemies while calling on the name of Jesus… Do you know what this is?

CHURCH PASTOR: No, I do not.

APOLOGIST: This is the “new covenant” of the churches, this is the “new covenant” you follow.

CHURCH PASTOR: This is preposterous.

APOLOGIST: I thought the same at first because I have never heard anything like this preached or taught in our church or in any church for that matter. He told me this is not what they teach with their lips, but it is in fact what they do; it is the covenant they live out in their actions, in their lives. The prison is your fellowship of bondage, you all say you’re saved by Jesus work on the cross while you trample Him, His Words of Grace, the Words of God. You have no regard for His Words of life that destroy sin. In turn you continue to nail your current sins on the cross, you ask for mercy and grace in vain. It is in vain because when given to you, it is ignored as you put him back on the cross and continue your vile acts of sin while saying you cannot stop. This cycle is your repeated life style. Those who continue like this, their hearts eventually harden to the point where they slander great slanders, insulting the Spirit sent to teach them and are marked by those slanders. [Hebrews 10:26-31, Hebrews 6:4-8].

You do not see Jesus the Anointed One as the one who is sitting at the right hand of the Father, you refuse to come to the throne of Grace to receive help for the time of need [Hebrews 4:16] so you may see victory and glorify God [Psalms 50:15-21]. You in your life style see Him as dead, you all impale the Anointed One over and over, refuse His burial, and deny His resurrection in the way that you live and the decisions you make in your lives. You live as if Jesus is still dead; He is dead to you. He is only alive to you when you need something. You treat Him like a charm or a dumb idol, as the pagans do their demons and gods who cannot speak. You ignore God’s Words as if He does not speak, as if He is dumb, then you call your own teachings His.

CHURCH PASTOR (Shakes his head in anger).

CHURCH GOER:So you’re saying we all cannot repent then, that we are all doomed with no hope, because according to you we have crucified Him again and slandered the Holy Spirit?

APOLOGIST: No, this is a warning, there is hope right now, for I was once one of you, remember. However, for those who continue in this and do not repent, there is a future season in which they will be snared in a great snare where they will not be able to escape [Isaiah 30:28, 2 Thessalonians 2:9-12]. Then there will be no hope nor repentance for them; they will not even want it, believing they are already saved. Truthfully a lot of the many are already very far gone and will not repent. This is why I am giving this Apology and why I am urging you all to wake up from the delusion and change your mind for real, actually turn from sin and turn to obedience to the teachings of the Holy Spirit, so you will not go too far. The problem with this world is not the ungodly and the non-believers, the problem is the professing Christians who have changed the teachings and now live in apostasy believing their own acts to be true; apostate having no faith in God while believing they have faith through their hypocrisy. The Judgement of God is coming for them first. If professing Christians were being true Christians, meaning they were actually being slaves of the Anointed One, this world would not be the way it is. It is like this because of sinning Christians, who teach lies saying it’s the truth.

CHURCH GOER:Since it seems you know it all, please then tell us Scripture Scholar, what then is the New Covenant? You have failed to explain your beliefs on this as of yet.

APOLOGIST: It is written twice that the New Covenant that the LORD will make with us is that He will write His laws and teachings in our hearts and minds, we will not teach each other to know the LORD for all will know Him the least to the greatest because they will all be taught by the LORD. [Hebrews 8:8-13, Jeremiah 31:31-34]. All will know Him, as in, all kinds of people. He writes His laws (teachings) in us through His Holy Spirit [2 Corinthians 3:3-6].

The true church who is in the Ne Covenant does not continue in sin because they obey what they are taught to them by the Spirit of Grace, b God himself. Sinners do not stand in the congregation of the righteous [Psalms 1:5]. The righteous who fall off get back up again [Proverbs 24:16]; they return to the fold through the LORD who seeks them and finds them [Luke 15:4]. The wicked who continue in wickedness are dragged off to prison, they abide in the church of the dead [Proverbs 21:16]; many die in their sins. But for those who return to the LORD, the LORD is faithful to receive them [John 6:37].

CHURCH PASTOR: That’s all great, however it does not explain why you say we do no need teachers and pastors and why you condemn church fellowship, telling people to go against the Scripture [Hebrews 10:25]. You say your leading people to God alone, yet it sounds like you are leading them to be alone and become a target for the enemy.

APOLOGIST: Well first of all, I do not condemn fellowship. I believe every believer should have fellowship with others who obey [1 Corinthians 5:11]. But fellowship starts with God first [1 John 1:3-7]. I condemn sin and hypocrisy which indirectly includes fellowships that tolerate sin and hypocrisy, which happens to be pretty much every Christian church on the planet. You quote Hebrews 10:25, but ignore the verses that follow after it [Hebrews 10:26-29], which is hypocrisy.

I lead people to God alone because that is what Jesus said to do. He said: “teach them to guard all that I have commanded you.” [Matthew 28:20]. His commandments were to deny ourselves, pick up our crosses, and follow Him [Matthew 16:24, Mark 8:34, Luke 9:23], which we do by obeying His voice [John 10:27, Hebrews 1:1-2]. So I lead people to obey His voice and follow Him. Jesus the Anointed One said not to call each other leaders nor teacher [Matthew 23:8-10]. John writing to the younger converts in his day basically told them they did not need him, because they had the Anointing who teaches: “These things I have written to you concerning those leading you astray. But the anointing which you received from Him abides in you, and you do not need anyone to teach you. But as His anointing teaches you concerning all things, and is true and no lie, and as He has taught you, abide in Him.” [1 John 2:26-27]. This is what Jesus taught as well: “But the Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father shall send in My Name, He shall teach you all, and remind you of all that I said to you.” [John 14:26]. So I lead people to Jesus to be taught by Him, for this is the New Covenant:

“For this is the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel after those days, declares the Lord: I will put my laws into their minds, and write them on their hearts, and I will be their God, and they shall be my people. And they shall not teach, each one his neighbor and each one his brother, saying, ‘Know the Lord,’ for they shall all know me, from the least of them to the greatest. For I will be merciful toward their iniquities, and I will remember their sins no more.”
[Hebrews 8:10-12]. “All” as in all kinds of people will know Him if they obey Him [1 John 2:3-6]. Eternal life is to know God and His Son, which requires obedience [John 17:3, 12:50]. He does not remember our sins if we stop. You on the other hand remind Him of your sins by continuing to live in them and saying you cannot stop and that He does not see them because He sees Jesus; which is foolishness [Hebrews 4:12-13]. Even if God does not see your sin but sees Jesus, He gave judgement to Jesus so what does Jesus see [John 5:22, 27, Revelations 2:23]? Lastly, Jesus Himself said that they will all be taught by God [John 6:45]. Many just refuse to come to Jesus to be trained by Him. This is why I direct people directly to Jesus, starting with repentance from sin, because this is what He starts with, for the only way to know the truth is to obey Him [John 8:31-32, John 7:16-17]. Many try and follow Jesus alone but refuse to stop listening to satan and instead continue to sin. They get deceived and scare others who see their wickedness from putting their trust in Jesus alone. When we follow Jesus and repent of our sins, following His voice, then Jesus will lead us to His sheep of His fold and we will enter true fellowship with the other sheep, the true believers who also obey Jesus. Because, we can only find the True Church through Him, for He said: “I am the door. If anyone enters by Me, he will be saved and will go in and out and find pasture.” [John 10:9, John 10:7]. Anyone can walk through the doors of your church, but that does not mean they are saved nor does it mean they know Jesus. You do not even know Jesus, according to your testimony versus the testimony of the Scriptures.

CHURCH PASTOR: I have been following Jesus for many years and know many men of God who too have been following Him for years. Some are even my mentors, and I have never heard the things you speak of in such a way young man. Sounds like you’re starting a cult.

APOLOGIST: The reason why you have never heard this, Church Pastor, is because few find the path to life and many are on the broad path to destruction. There are few who are taught by Him. When He was asked whether few will be saved, Jesus said many will strive but not be able to enter [Luke 13:23-29]. Since the days of old, false prophets, teachers, pastors, and so on, have been putting things in place of the Anointing of God who teaches us in this Covenant. You Church Pastor were a victim of this, you were taught to put the teachings and traditions of men and your own study in place of the Anointing of God who teaches, you now do the same and victimize many others such as Church Goer and Believer here. You have a reverence for Jesus but execute this through your rites and ceremonies, not utter obedience to Him. This Church Pastor is the textbook definition of a cult. It’s just that the big cults call themselves religions and pick on the smaller ones. Jesus’ Body is not a cult because it’s comprised of those who know Him, those who obey His voice. The reason why this is foreign to you is because you have believed lies and have been fighting against the truth, this is why I have been sent to give you this apology so that you may go back to the LORD, repent, come to know Him, and then be used by Him in His way, however, you will not hear… Until you hear and repent, you will continue to place yourself in place of the Anointing and lead many astray. In putting yourself in place of the Anointing and making yourself their teacher rather than God, making yourself their god, not only do you sin, but you also line yourself up to be against the Anointed One, which is another way of saying antichrist, that is, “in place of the Anointed” or “against the Anointed”.

CHURCH PASTOR: Now you call me the Antichrist? You are so full of arrogance it is not even funny; and your doctrines are so corrupt and perverse. I know whom I side with. I know whom I follow and serve. You, Apologist, now that you explained all of this — I now know you are a false prophet, you are dangerous, and are leading many astray.

APOLOGIST: I called you an anti-anointed (an antichrist), as John said there are many antichrists [1 John 2:18-20, 26-27]. Again, you are an anti-anointed because you put things in place of the Anointing, in place of the Anointed One who teaches in this Covenant. You lead people in such manner, Believer and Church Goer here are a victims of your anti-anointing doctrines, I was too; you Church Pastor have broken the New Covenant, for Church Goer and Believer I am sure are not taught by God. You have changed the teachings and you transgress Jesus’ laws, you and the many like you; you’re all blind and have eyes which are filled with sin and evil, hating that which is good; the light that is in you is actually darkness [Matthew 20:15, 6:23, Luke 11:35], you follow a false light; it’s obvious because it cannot destroy sin, it sides with it and is overtaken [John 1:5, 2 Corinthians 6:14].

CHURCH PASTOR: I have had enough of your accusations, I do not need to listen to this; you are a false prophet, a false teacher, a wolf who has come to cause division and discord.

Regarding the False Ministers

APOLOGIST: Church Pastor, do you know how Jesus told us to identify those who are false in this New Covenant? Do you know what the Scripture says?

CHURCH PASTOR: I am done going through the Scriptures with you! You are a heretic and I have rebuked you, now I leave you to your own self-condemnation [Titus 3:9-11].

APOLOGIST: Well Believer and Church Goer, Jesus said we know false prophets by their fruit, what they do. He said: “But beware of the false prophets, who come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are savage wolves. By their fruits you shall know them. Are grapes gathered from thorn bushes or figs from thistles? So every good tree yields good fruit, but a rotten tree yields wicked fruit. A good tree is unable to yield wicked fruit, and a rotten tree to yield good fruit. Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire. So then, by their fruits you shall know them – [Matthew 7:15-20]”. It does not matter if they are used by Him, if they preach every Sunday and give the Word, or if they prophesy or drive out demons or do miracles, for He said: “Not everyone who says to Me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ shall enter into the reign of the heavens, but he who is doing the desire of My Father in the heavens. Many shall say to Me in that day, ‘Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in Your Name, and cast out demons in Your Name, and done many mighty works in Your Name?’ And then I shall declare to them, ‘I never knew you, depart from Me, you who work lawlessness!” [Matthew 7:21-23].

Peter warned them in their day that just as there were false prophets of old, there are false teachers who will be among us [2 Peter 2]. He warned of their destructive heresies, today these are teachings that lead you to death, they accommodate sin. Church Pastor is false because he still sins. This is why I say that all of you are false, because no one who continues to sin knows Jesus. So how can a pastor who still sins teach anyone to obey Jesus? How can a pastor who still sins, and does not even believe we can stop, lead you to Jesus so that you may overcome and stop? How can a pastor who has not been taught by God teach you to be taught by God so you may cease from your sins? My friends, the false still sin. You know them by their fruit, not just by what they say, because they can be gifted and even study and sound good. Even if they preach about Jesus, preach about the truths they study from the Scriptures, and even if they have charisma and a nice personality, if they still sin, you know they are not operating in the New Covenant where God writes His laws in them, teaches them, and destroys the works of satan in them. They do not know Him in the way the Covenant is designed, we know they do not because they continue to sin. Do you not know that the requirement to be an overseer, a leader in the church, is to be blameless [1 Timothy 3:2, 10, Titus 1:5-7]? Church Pastor at the beginning of this discourse already disqualified himself.

BELIEVER: Excuse me, if I may interject.

CHURCH PASTOR (Wiping head frantically): Yes! Please!

APOLOGIST: Yes, friend?

BELIEVER: Well Apologist you have used the Scriptures quite effectively in explaining that there is a serious problem with pastors and those in ministry who continue to sin. I hope you have come to stop sinning dear friend, since it would be hypocrisy for you to point out sin and say we must stop while you yourself do not have this testimony or at least know of the way to get it and be walking on it. However, what I would like to know is, if Church Pastor is indeed false, and with him all pastors who continue to sin, as well as prophets and ministers, why then does the Scripture speak of Jesus sending us gifts — sending us apostles, prophets, pastors, teachers and evangelists? For you teach that we do not need men to teach us and do not need pastors, yet the Scriptures make it clear they are sent to the church, so what you say sounds like heresy. I have been listening very closely and noticed you have not referenced any of the verses in support to teachers, nor given any explanation to them. Now, you have thoroughly explained yourself regarding your stand against sin, and your stand on perfection, and your stand on how the Grace of God saves, and your stand on being taught by God alone; you have now just explained your stand on who is false — all of which you have supported with the Scriptures. But you have not explained the partiality and the hypocrisy you fall into where the Scriptures speak in a positive manner of the things you say we do not need. This is part of the reason why there is such a charge against you as well as those like you, and the things you preach. Jesus did send us pastors and teachers, so if we do not need them why did He send them?

APOLOGIST: This is a good question Believer, and I will tell you plainly, as the Scripture says. The apostles, prophets, pastors, teachers, evangelists, helps, ministrations, healings, miracles and all others like these are gifts [1 Corinthians 12:6-11, 28], yes we need them, yes He sent them and yes they are in use now…

CHURCH GOER:So you say Jesus has sent them. So why do you come against Church Pastor who is gifted and those whom Jesus has set up to keep His people on track? This is confusion!

APOLOGIST: Church Goer, if God said to you, “Leave your father and mother, for they conspire to kill you and eat you, for I have forsaken them” [Deuteronomy 28:55, 57, Lamentations 2:20, Leviticus 26:29], but your parents say, “Stay with us, child, for all is well,” what would you do?

CHURCH GOER:Well, I would obey God rather than man… obviously. [Psalms 118:8-9]

APOLOGIST: So why do you charge me regarding your corrupt pastors who obviously have corrupt judgement, who love evil and hate good, who love sin and hate complete righteousness and holiness, who are devouring you and your family? [Micah 3:1-4]. Why do you continue to set your allegiance with those whose works God has condemned [Jeremiah 25:32-38]? How can you not judge rightly, you blind goat! Even if Church Pastor is gifted, because he still sins, he is false!

CHURCH GOER (narrows his eyes in anger).

APOLOGIST: Now Believer, the Scripture says that it is the Holy Spirit who gives these gifts, and He credits their works to Jesus Himself, not to the human beings who operates in the gifts [1 Corinthians 12:4-7]. Jesus sent us these gifts to lead us into perfection, and perfection comes through hearing His voice and obeying Him, through love, ceasing from sin, and not being tossed around by every spirit of teaching [Ephesians 4:11-14, Luke 6:40]. The gifts are in part, once one comes to maturity they are a full man and not in need of what is in part, like a child would be in need [1 Corinthians 13:8-13]. The perfect man is one who trained and obeys what they have been taught [Luke 6:40]; unity in faith comes through following the One Good Shepherd [John 10:11, 14, 16]; and the gifts of the One Holy Spirit lead us into following the One Good Shepherd. Perfection and unity in faith happens now in this life in an individual’s walk as he grows in following the One Good Shepherd, Jesus the Anointed One, through His One Holy Spirit [Ephesians 4:3-7]. Paul told us to endeavour to keep the unity. This means full unity can be among us now. The gifts should be raising you up to a place where you no longer need them, because you obey Jesus. The problem is the leaders of today have broken that unity and teach many to continue in lies. If the pastors and leaders were doing their job, then people would be ceasing from sin, learning from Jesus, and there would be unity, not division and forty thousand different denominations teaching different things from the same Book.

Thus these gifts were sent to help us in following Him not men or men’s ministries. Anyone who is gifted and obedient will lead you directly to Jesus so you may be taught by Him. The leaders Jesus sets up who are obedient cannot be identified by how they look, possessions, nor by their status. Remember, He said they would be your servant and least of all [Matthew 23:11, Luke 22:24-26, Mark 10:42-44]. To the natural eye they look like nobodies, but in their obedience the Anointed One is magnified, and they decrease [John 3:30]. Because FEW will be saved, you will find even fewer gifted and obedient leaders today. They are in the world, but there are few of them, this is part of the reason why Jesus has no problem using the false, He has vessels of honour and of dishonour. [2 Timothy 2:20-21]. Anyone who is gifted but disobedient, Jesus will use, but their disobedience can become a snare to many if the many follow them, which they do. This is why the false can still prophesy truthfully and drive out demons for real and do real miracles; it is Jesus doing the works through them. The false are used by Him but yet still choose to disobey Him, their disobedience leads to corrupt teachings [1 Timothy 4:1-2]. The false in their disobedience leave room for themselves to be used by satan [2 Corinthians 11:14-15]. They lead people to themselves [John 5:43-44], not to Jesus, because they are not obeying Him. Jesus never commanded us to focus on nor follow pastors or on any human being nor their ministries. In fact, there are many warnings in the Scriptures against the false: false apostles and evangelists carrying another gospel [Revelation 2:2, 2 Corinthians 11:1-4], false teachers [2 Peter 2], false pastors and prophets [Jeremiah 23, Ezekiel 34:1-24, Micah 3:1-5, Matthew 7:15-20] and I am sure there are many more.

BELIEVER: How is it that things are so twisted, if all that you say is true?

APOLOGIST: The problem has been in the world since the days of Paul and John. We have been raised in the apostate generation. The Mystery of Lawlessness Paul spoke of dominated, for it was in the world then and has taken over [2 Thessalonians 2:7]. Likewise John warned us of those who are against the Anointed and put things in place of Him, again they have dominated [1 John 2:18-21]. God still uses them, He has used Church Pastor here, but it is not because He is pleased with Him, it is because He is resourceful. He even used an ass to get Balaam’s attention, and technically that ass was more useful than Church Pastor, for it saved both Balaam’s and its own life [Numbers 22:22-31]. I cannot say the same for pastors of this generation [Matthew 15:14, 23:13]! That ass was wiser and more righteous than them; it submitted to God.

CHURCH PASTOR (Widens his eyes, shaking his head and mutters under his breath in awe and anger).

APOLOGIST: You have not yet ceased from your sins because you are following this man who continues to sin, who teaches we can’t stop disobeying God and breaks the Covenant by teaching others. He may have been used to encourage you and even speak some truths Jesus has sent, but because he does not actually know the Jesus he has studied about and who occasionally uses him, he leads you to believe that the denomination you are a part of, which consists of many people, is the narrow way to life few find; it’s the same thing the other forty thousand denominations believe about themselves. We are known by our fruit, what we do, everyone in church generally speaking is still sinning, still obeying satan. If any do come to obey Jesus, they become a problem to the rest and are called heretics and are hated the same way Jesus was hated by the Pharisees [John 15:18-20, Matthew 5:12]. No one hates any of you for righteousness’ sake. Yeah, some may hate you because of their own jealousy, gossip, and vanity, or because of some evil that you may have done to them, but no one hates you because you obey Jesus. No one hates you Church Pastor. Many speak highly of you, respect you, and love the words you speak… Jesus again spoke about this when He said: “Woe to you when all men speak well of you, for thus their fathers did to the false prophets” [Luke 6:26]. You please people, not God.

CHURCH PASTOR: I have had enough of your false accusations, your lies and your false use of Scriptures —

APOLOGIST: (Interrupting him) Church Pastor it would have been better for you to have been born mentally disabled. At least then you would have an excuse, and the LORD OF SPIRITS would have mercy and wink at your inability to comprehend the truth. How can you not see that because you still sin you do not know Jesus [1 John 2:3-4, 3:6]? You still sin because you are not taught by Him through His Grace [Titus 2:11-14], you do not demonstrate faith in His Words [James 2:26]. Because you do not know Jesus and do not have faith in His Words, you cannot lead others to Him, you lead them to your own “anointing,” spiritually speaking [Matthew 24:23-25, 25:9-10]. Because you teach people to “know Him,” you break the New Covenant where God is the one who writes His laws in us, and teaches us to know Him Himself [Hebrews 8:10-11]. Because you have set yourself up as a teacher, you and these people all still sinning, you are all still sinners, lining up for the lake of fire [Revelation 21:7-8, 1 Corinthians 6:9-10, Galatians 5:19-21]. How can you not understand this? [John 8:47]. David explained that it’s fools who do not understand this [Psalms 92:6-7]. You are blinder than the blind ones of Jesus’ day. If they could, they would condemn you on the last day, for at least compared to you they had some excuse, because the Holy Spirit has been given to personally train us; we have a better Covenant that utterly perfects [Hebrews 7:19]! They rejected it and so do you, while you say you are in it! They now understand. Sadly if you continue how you are, you will understand in the same way they did: when you enter into She’ol with them.

You have no excuse. You do not love the brethren, though you say you do [1 John 5:2-3]. You are worse than the Pharisees you have studied about: you have the best seats in church and in the banquets and meetings [Matthew 23:6], you do all these good works to be seen by men and list them as your credentials for knowing Jesus [Matthew 23:5]. You are called by titles and even teacher [Matthew 23:7-11]. You hinder people who actually want to stop sinning, who actually want to be perfect as commanded, who actually want to be pleasing to Jesus, and you lie to them and reprove them and kill them, saying they cannot stop sinning, they cannot be perfect. You tell them they are sinners if they believe they can be without sin, the same sins Jesus came to take away. You stop them from entering the Kingdom that you yourself are not entering into [Matthew 23:13]. You not only devour widows’ houses, but devour the entire flock: you demand money from them to sustain your buildings and your ministries you build, none of which have power to save [Matthew 23:14]. You go out to great lengths and try and convert people to your denominations teachings and bring them to your church buildings, and then make them twice the sinning slanderer you are [Matthew 23:15]. You have perverse judgement and place your traditions over the commandments of God; you place the Scriptures and your knowledge of them above the knowledge of the Holy Spirit of Truth. Which is greater: the Scriptures which you call the Word of God or the Holy Spirit who inspired the Scriptures which testifies that Jesus is the Word of God? You act as if Jesus is not that Spirit while teaching He is [2 Corinthians 3:17]. You then use the Scriptures to manipulate people to follow your ways and doctrines, you do not lead them to obey the Holy Spirit of the Anointed One, who inspired the Scriptures. You get offended when your own traditions are broken, when people are not seen in church and not following your doctrine, but you do not get offended over people still sinning, when breaking the commandments of God. The sins you do get offended by are simply the ones you do not do (in the open). You hypocrites [Matthew 23:16-24]! You dress up in your suits and best dress on Sunday, and even get offended if people are not dressed in certain ways, but you, on the inside, are full of sin and every evil work, and you make excuses for it. You are pleased when your sinning congregation looks good in worship, when your children recite Scriptures, when people are crying and worshipping and showing interest in the programs and the preaching while they are all still sinning, still ignoring the convictions of the Holy Spirit and still full of wickedness, fornications and idolatry on the inside. Many are sinning in their hearts at church and you are pleased because you only judge the outward appearance [Mathew 23:25-28]. You look at the Scriptures and them of old; you say, “The Scribe and the Pharisee were wicked!” yet you are worse than them, you then say, “Oh I suffer because I am like Job,” yet God said Job was perfect, and you do not even believe we can be perfect. You indirectly accuse the righteous of old of being wicked like you by saying you are like them. And you condemn those of old who were wicked when you are worse! As if you are not finishing their work, as Jesus said [Matthew 23:29-32]. Church Pastor, you serpent, you lamb-horned beast, you dragon-worshipper, you and those like you do all these things and worse. How will you escape the condemnation of She’ol? [Matthew 23:33].

CHURCH PASTOR: How dare you! You now name-call and insult me? Who do you think you are?!

CHURCH GOER:He does not represent Jesus the Anointed One; he is self-righteous.

APOLOGIST: You morons, you judge by your emotions and not by what is right. You judge the words spoken to you based on how they make you feel, not by whether they are actually true, not by their meanings. You get insulted by the Truth, not because it is not true, but because of the way it makes you feel and how it is delivered [Matthew 3:7-10, Luke 7:3-9]. A whore is a whore even if she feels insulted by being called whore; it is still true. You encounter the truthful correction that stings and then you reject it in fear, and in pride you defend yourselves; this makes you idiots, blind, and deaf [Proverbs 12:1]. If you were to at least humble yourselves to Jesus the Anointed One and ask Him about the very things we have discussed here and seek Him for the truth in spite of how you feel, at least then you would be wise, even if you were still blind. Even the blind man was wise enough to call out to Jesus; he received his sight, then FOLLOWED JESUS IN THE WAY [Mark 10:46-52]. But you blockheads sit here defending your sin and death, defending your rotting souls which are being lined up for the tortures of Hell, for the torments of She’ol and the second death of the lake of fire — while you foolishly say you are alive in Jesus just because you know about Him and the cross… is this not stupidity?

You’re thinking I am condemned for calling you morons [Matthew 5:22], yet you’re worse than those Jesus Himself called fools [Luke 11:40]. And yes, you are fools professing to be wise [Romans 1:22], for wisdom demands obedience: Beside the gates, leading to the city, at the entrances, she shouts: “now, listen to me, you children, for blessed are they who guard my ways. Listen to discipline and become wise, and do not refuse it. Blessed is the man who listens to me, watching daily at my gates, waiting at the posts of my doors. For whoever finds me shall find life, and obtain favour from the LORD, but he who sins against me injures himself; all who hate me love death!” [Proverbs 8:3, 32-36]. Through your sin you prove to be fools. You are no different than the fools of this world that say there is no God and the fools that worship the creation rather than the Creator [Romans 1:21-23]. Through your sin and fleshy life styles of death and love of this world system you show you hate God with them [Romans 8:6-8, James 4:4]. You argue with them about the existence of God and whose religion is right, but in action you agree with them on being a slave to the dragon, when it comes to loving sin, which is loving death. In this you make yourselves worse than them: you study the very Scriptures of Truth, knowing the truth which will condemn you and them on the last day [1 Peter 2:6-8] and still join with them in their filth and blasphemies and say “I’m saved”. You unfaithful harlots!

You are just like them, you live like this world and love the things in it, the only things different between you and them is what you study, what you profess to believe, and your religious works. You have more in common with them in your sin, hypocrisy, ambitions and desires, than things you have which are not in common with them. Do you not know Jesus called the religious people and their leaders “the world” in His day [John 7:7-8]? He said: If the world hates you, you know that it hated Me before it hated you… If I had not come and spoken to them, they would have no sin, but now they have no excuse for their sin. He who hates Me hates My Father as well. [John 15:18-23]. Likewise your sin is now great because I have spoken to you in His Name and now, NOW, you have no, NO excuse for your sin [John 15:22]. You say you know Him, yet on that day, you will stand before Him and He will say worse to you and call you worse than what I do now!

Who do I think I am? What does that matter? Instead, I will tell you who you are: You Church Pastor are the father of those coming up, the ones who will continue as the horns like a lamb that speak as a dragon [Revelation 13:11]. You and those like you and those rising up after you are the very many false prophets Jesus warned us of [Matthew 24:11-12], you are of those of whom Paul warned day and night with tears, encouraging us to cling to God and His Grace who teaches, rather than running off with men from among us and those who creep in to make disciples of themselves with perverse teachings [Acts 20:29-33]. You and your mentors are the offspring of those Paul warned against, you are born blind into this religion they call Christianity, this is why you do not see. And you love your sins so you do not want to see, you love the darkness! You worship the dragon with your body and with your serpent forked tongues you say “I worship God”, then speak the teachings of the dragon who says, “You cannot stop sinning,” and, “You shall not surely die” [Genesis 2:17, 3:4, Ezekiel 3:18-19, 18:20]. You and those who follow you and those whom you have learned from, your religion, ARE THE PROBLEM, this is why Jesus deals with you FIRST [1 Peter 4:17, Revelation 19:20-21]. You tell those who continue to sin that they cannot stop and they will not die because of their sin, and that God is pleased with them; you slander and sharply reprove those who speak the truth. You hypocrites and liars, you who are supposed to be light are actually darkness, teaching those whom you should be leading to the light to instead stay in darkness, lying to them by saying they are in the light while they continue in their sin, the works of the dragon and the ways of this world, teaching them to be Christian whores like you; whores who pay their clients [Ezekiel 16:33-44, Revelations 17:16-18]…

CHURCH PASTOR (slams his fist on the desk): I have had enough!! Get out my office!! Get out my church, you (curse word) (profanity) heretic!! (Pause, catching his breath) I am sorry. I apologise: I do not know what came over me. You offend me and anger me and you have made me lose my self-control. I think it is time for you to leave. This discussion is over.

With that, Apologist departed.

~***~

Church Pastor continued in his ways not believing nor entertaining a word Apologist said. He never took them back to Jesus the Anointed One seriously and ignored the convictions and rebukes. Church Pastor a little later died, he died in his sins [Proverbs 29:1, 6:15]. He went to hell and was tortured beyond anything he could have possibly imagined, he received various tortures for each sin he was guilty of [Matthew 18:34]. He wanted to return and warn others [Luke 16:27-31], he cried out in repentance, wanting another chance, despising his past decisions of arrogance, pride and trust in his religious knowledge. He cried out for mercy and cried out to have a second chance, but there was none to hear his cry, he was among his torturers who mocked him. It was too late [Proverbs 1:27-33, Ezekiel 8:18].

Apologist obeyed the truth, he ceased from sin through obedience to the teachings of the Holy Spirit, even in stumbling, he returned to Jesus, learning from his mistakes; trusting Jesus the Anointed One to finish the perfect work He started in Him [1 Peter 5:10]. He gave up everything for Jesus [Luke 14:33] and lived a set-apart life, loving Jesus above all things and loving people as Jesus loves [John 13:34]. The world and society rejected him because of his obedience to the life style Jesus commanded. Apologist dwelled in the wilderness [Ezekiel 34:25-31] in peace and safety [Isaiah 32:16-20, Romans 8:9-10] and he lived to see the coming of the LORD and was taken up into the sky with power and glory.

Believer took what he had heard from Apologist to the LORD. He began to learn from the Spirit of Grace and began to see victories over sin. He then became the new Gifted Pastor of the church. Because he preached that we must stop sinning completely and to be perfect, and scrap the traditions, the church split, only few followed him as he followed the LORD, things started out well. However Believer got snared in pride and went ahead of the LORD. He practised the instructions regarding his previous sins, but did not practise following the LORD, day by day. He stopped learning from Him and was seduced into learning from a false messenger of light who justified some sins as not being sin. He began to change the laws and teachings just as the hypocrites before him but worse. He committed adultery and voided the words of Jesus by divorcing and remarrying and taught his brethren that it was not adultery contrary to the Words of Jesus [Mark 10:11-12, Luke 16:17-18, Matthew 5:27-32 ref: Matthew 1:18-24]. Though he was warned he did not repent and many other perversions crept in. His assembly grew large fast and his heart departed from the LORD. Some of those who followed him at first, left him siding with the LORD for they were taught by the LORD. Believer without realizing then encouraged the people to live the same lives as the hypocrites, he did not lead them to count the cost and give up everything in following the LORD [Luke 14:24-35]. His teachings snared them in lusts and cares of this life [Luke 21:34-36], they were afflicted greatly. He lived to see the coming of the LORD which came to him and those following Him suddenly and he was cut to pieces and given his portion with the hypocrites [Matthew 24:48-51].

Church Goer continued in the ways of Church Pastor willingly forgetting the warnings heard, he became the new pastor over the larger portion of the split church. He led the people to continue to be part of the world though he lied and said they were sanctified. He preached the hypocrisy of being balanced with the world and religion [James 4:4, 1 John 2:15, 4:5, 5:18-19]. He did not lead any to Jesus to completely stop sinning, in fact he spoke against those who taught it and slandered them, oppressing them through preaching and enforcing the laws of the nations which gave the churches more power [Revelations 13:11-12]. He did many signs and wonders deceiving many. He was part of a major religious revival and well respected among the well-respected Christians, they all believed the LORD was delaying His coming [2 Peter 3:3-4]. Because their religion was doing so well, they thought the LORD was with them and they had security [1 Thessalonians 5:2-3, Jeremiah 23:16-19], not realising they were all the very false prophets of the end that the Scriptures spoke of. They marked themselves spiritually with the names of slander [Revelation 13:1, 14:11] while looking for the physical mark believing their own false prophecies, interpretations and teachings of the end. They led others to blaspheme with them. They lived to see the coming of the LORD, Church Goer and those like him were the first to be destroyed, their very beings and works were all brought to ruin by the brightness of His appearing and they were all tossed alive into the lake of fire, for judgement begins with His house, and worse judgement is issued to those who knew but did not obey. They knew the Scriptures but did not believe them and did not obey the Word of God [Hebrews 12:25, John 5:46-47] and led the world astray with them, through the religion of Christianity.

This is the ending of the parable of the Apologies of the Apologist.

Final-Wording

Jedidiah son of the Word of God, writing as instructed concerning the final apology, written directly to the believers of Jesus. You question why this was written, and why the sharp tone? Where is the Love and Grace? My dear friends this is written that you may go to Him for Grace in reverence and trembling. Love rebukes even if those listening kill Him for it [Zechariah 8:16, Ephesians 4:25, John 8:45, 18:37-40].

Believers, The Great Day is at hand, you who continue to sin will not stand, you will find yourself in shock, distress, terror and agony, because the judgement of God is coming for those who have continued to sin, those who in their life style have rejected His salvation, His Love, His Mercy, His Grace. It is coming. They rejected His Love demonstrated because they refused to Love Him back [Romans 5:8, John 14:15]. On that day, at that final hour, those who rejected His Love, the professing Christians who did not obey Him, they will see Him in the sky; they will first be in shock because He has arrived suddenly [2 Thessalonians 5:2-3], they will be gripped by fear because of the guilt of their sins. Then they will be in confusion and distress when they do not go up with the dead who rise, nor the few alive who remained. Then they will be in terror because they will see and know their sins, they will see the spirits in whom they had been slaves too, who they served. Then they will be in agony when they see he has not left and there is not more time as their false doctrines teach, there will not be more years, it is the end. Then they will be in absolute terror because they will see the marks of slander upon themselves and each other, at this time they will understand He is coming for them first, that they are those in whom the Scriptures spoke of, they are those who were against the anointing, they will realise they are those who pierced Him [Revelation 1:7]. Hope will not be found for them, nor Mercy, nor Grace. They will then do as the rest of the nation’s do and attempt to save themselves, trusting wood and stone to hide them and metal and lead to fight for them, all will be in vain, their efforts will fail. For the Fire will consume the Heavens and the Earth [2 Peter 3:10], the Fire of His Wrath like an army [Joel 2:1-11], His Word will consume and will slay all of the ungodly, the sinners, and the hypocrites of mankind and the wicked spirits from off the face of the earth [Zephaniah 3:1-8, Zechariah 13:2]. The heat of His Fires will reach into the face of She’ol; the fires of GěHinnom will blush [Hebrews 12:29, Psalms 139:8]. None will escape on this terrible and dreadful day in the Heavens nor the Earth [Isaiah 24:21-22]. This is why the call to true repentance is being spoken, this is why this Apology, this explanation is being given to the Truth that so many professing Christians charge as being error, heresy and corruption. Fulfilling the Scripture: Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil; who put darkness for light, and light for darkness; who put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter! [Isaiah 5:20].

You say that it’s the unbelievers who store up the wrath of God, you say that peace and safety is with you because you stay in church. You are falsely secure in what you believe, while you continue to sin and disobey the Word of the LORD [Jeremiah 23:17-18]. In pride, you then get offended when correction, rebuke and reproof comes… Yet all creation (in its general sense), obeys the laws and ordinances of the LORD, yet mankind says in their heart “no God” [Psalms 14:1, Psalms 53:1 “there is” is added]. His own people mix with the world and change His commandments, teachings, laws and break His Holy Covenant saying “we cannot stop, it is our nature.” All creation testifies against you. All creation proves your crookedness and perversions, you people of the LORD who call yourselves believers of Jesus the Anointed One. You His people have changed and broken His teachings and His covenant, you transgress His laws and say “we are not under any law for the Old is gone, the New has come”, then you make your own laws and teachings and traditions which is Hypocrisy: lawlessness pretending to be of Christ; and in your treachery you call it The New Covenant, you call it the Liberty and freedom the Anointed One died to give you. You changed His purpose in coming to destroying sin into a purpose of legalizing sin and removing the consequences. You continue to sin and foolishly say: “We will not die because of Jesus’ work on the cross!”

It is written of you wicked ones: For the earth has been defiled under its inhabitants, because they have transgressed the teachings, changed the law, broken the everlasting covenant. Therefore a curse shall consume the earth, and those who dwell in it be punished. Therefore the inhabitants of the earth shall be burned, and few men shall be left. [Isaiah 24:5-6].

This is why the Day of the LORD is coming, it is because of you sinning Christians who have changed and broken the Laws, Teachings and New Covenant, as it is written: “But the message of the LORD you no longer remember! For every man’s message is his own word, for you have changed the Words of the living God, the LORD of hosts, our God!” [Jeremiah 23:36].

And again: “See, the day of the LORD is coming, fierce, with wrath and heat of displeasure, to lay the earth waste, and destroy its sinners from it. For the stars of the heavens and their constellations do not give off their light. The sun shall be dark at its rising, and the moon not send out its light. “And I shall punish the world for its evil, and the wrong for their crookedness, and shall put an end to the arrogance of the proud, and lay low the pride of the ruthless.” [Isaiah 13:9-11].

This Scripture includes you. You are the wrong, the crooked and the proud who say “I am saved” while you still fornicate with satan, continuing in sin and define your own grounds of salvation and then put your trust in it; a salvation that tolerates your sin, a salvation that tolerates disobedience to His voice.

And again He said: “And I shall take vengeance in wrath and rage on the nations who did not obey.” [Micah 5:15].

Sin is disobedience, disobedience is sin. Sinners sin, they disobey, if you are still sinning you are in disobedience and the day of the LORD is coming for you. This is a call to change your mind from your current ways and turn to the new way Jesus teaches you. This is an apology to explain the truth that sets men free, so that men will understand their error and return to the Father of Lights, be cleansed and follow His Son who is Life. Saints are ex-sinners, Saints are those who now obey Jesus and cease from sin, they change their mind and stop the old ways and learn the new way from Jesus and do it. The religion of Christianity has failed and has exposed themselves as false. Their fruit show who they are. They are now the enemies of God just as the Pharisee were the enemies of God in the days of Jesus the Anointed One, history has repeated itself, just new names, programs, buildings, titles and terms. At the end of the day it is about those who hear the voice of God and do what He says [Deuteronomy 28:1-2, John 10:27-28]. May you hear and come to life [Ephesians 2:1, Colossians 2:13, John 5:25, Luke 11:28].

May Jesus the Anointed Son of God, King of Kings, reveal Himself to you and lead you into complete salvation and perfect Love. May He expose the lies that keep you in bondage to sin. Blessed is His Name, He shall be praised forevermore! Glory to the Living God, the Eternal One, the First and the Last, He who created the created, He who words cannot describe, yet our spirit cries out in longings for Him that cannot be uttered! To Him whose own power bows down too, because of who He is, His goodness and His Excellency, be glory and honour and praise forever and ever. Amen and Amen. Come LORD come.

Ending of the explanation of the five point incitement of the people of Jesus the Anointed One.

Jedidiah the blameless, son of the Word of God
