Another Jesus? #UMC

But I am afraid that, as the serpent deceived Eve by his craftiness, your minds will be led astray from the simplicity and purity of devotion to Christ. For if one comes and preaches another Jesus whom we have not preached, or you receive a different spirit which you have not received, or a different gospel which you have not accepted, you bear this beautifully. 2 Corinthians 11:3-4

Is the Methodist Church preaching another Jesus? Methodist Bishop,  Dr. Karen Oliveto, who is an open lesbian married to a woman , who also a deacon in her church, has said this about Jesus

“If Jesus can change, if he can give up his bigotries and prejudices, if he can realize that he had made his life too small, and if, in this realization, he grew closer to others and closer to God, than so can we.”

The Bishop Karen, who oversees over 400 Methodist churches,  directly called Jesus a bigot and prejudice. This would imply that Jesus was sinful and not God in the flesh. How could Jesus be the Messiah or Lamb of God if he was a bigot? Basically, the UMC is introducing a new heresy that is stating Jesus is just another prophet like many cults and false religions

“Too many folks want to box Jesus in, carve him in stone, create an idol out of him. But this story cracks the pedestal we’ve put him on. The wonderful counselor, mighty God, everlasting one, prince of peace, was as human as you and me. Like you and me, he didn’t have his life figured out. He was still growing, maturing, putting the pieces together about who he was and what he was supposed to do. We might think of him as the Rock of Ages, but he was more like a hunk of clay, forming and reforming himself in relation to God.

In another interview Bishop Karen went on to say we should not create an idol out of Jesus. Basically saying we shouldn’t worship Christ, are you serious? Does she understand the Methodist Church is supposed to be Christian? This is a direct denial of Jesus deity by a Bishop of the Methodist Church.

 

I emailed a superintendent of the UMC to see if her doctrine was accepted by the church. I wont give his name but he fully supported her new doctrine and even went on to give me a sermon to support her. Its clear the UMC is introducing a new heretical doctrine to remove the deity of Christ and support their homosexual agenda.

Rock Of Ages

For you have forgotten the God of your salvation And have not remembered the rock of your refuge. Therefore you plant delightful plants And set them with vine slips of a strange god. Isaiah 17:10

Throughout time Israel had an Idolatry issue. They would continually forgot about God and all he accomplished for them, and they would go on and worship false idols and religions. They would forget the times God delivered them from the slavery of Egypt or provide them Manna and water in the desert. They instead followed their fleshly desires to false cults that practiced abominations to God

Many people are like this today, we forget about everything God has blessed or provided us with. Instead we go on following our own false idols or religion. People today spend most of their time dedicated to making money , or watching sports,  or playing on their phones. These all become idols when they are placed more important than God

“Therefore everyone who hears these words of Mine and acts on them, may be compared to a wise man who built his house on the rock. Matthew 7:24

Is God the Rock of your refuge? Jesus said anyone who trust in him is building upon the rock. What are you basing your life on? Are you building a foundation that is solid, strong, and eternal? Or are you building on the sand, building on the temporary pleasures and desires of this world that will produce no fruit?

Don’t forget who your Heavenly Father is, don’t forget who is the Rock of your Refuge in Jesus Name Amen!

Heavenly Father, we pray that everyone would remember you are our Rock, you are our refuge and strength in times of trouble, in Jesus Name Amen

Know Your Enemy

“How you have fallen from heaven, O star of the morning, son of the dawn! You have been cut down to the earth, You who have weakened the nations! Isaiah 14:12

The prophet Isaiah reveals alot about our greatest enemy , Satan also known as Lucifer. We see that Satan is trying to raise himself up to become like God and have the entire world worship him. Many people today are worshiping Satan without even realizing it, he’s incorporated himself in books, movies, technology, and of course religion. Satan promotes “Self worship” which is what society has become with social media and YouTube ect

Its obvious when you look at our society today, that Satan has a great influence. Many acts of evil are being committed today that we have never even heard of before, suicide rates have sky rocketed, people are abandoning their children and families to pursue their own interests. This is what happens when people stop worshipping God and start worshipping themselves

“Nevertheless you will be thrust down to Sheol, To the recesses of the pit. Isaiah 14:15

However Satans days are numbered. Even though it appears the world is in total chaos and evil has take over, God is still in control. Jesus on the cross, defeated Satan and all evil. The powers of darkness and even death, have no hold on those who have put their trust in Jesus Christ. This is why sharing the gospel is so important

And the devil who deceived them was thrown into the lake of fire and brimstone, where the beast and the false prophet are also; and they will be tormented day and night forever and ever. Revelation 20:10

Satan (Lucifer) is defeated, his destination is the Lake of Fire along with everyone who worships him. Satan knows his time is limited so you are seeing evil on a high level these days. Don’t follow his deception, follow the only giver of life Jesus Christ!

Creator over creature

For they exchanged the truth of God for a lie, and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever. Amen. Romans 1:25

Notice who they worshiped, they worshiped the creature rather than the Creator. Who is the creature? The serpent , Satan.  Jesus taught us that Satan is the God of this world. The entire world is under the spell of the evil one.

We see this prevalent today. The world is saying there is no God, the world is saying we now worship ourselves. As Paul says even though they knew God , they never gave him glory or thanks for anything (Romans 1:21) We see this today, Science has proven Gods existence however scientist don’t want to God any glory or credit for his creation.

The problem is we were all made to worship. Its our human nature to worship. Therefor when people reject their Creator they begin worshipping other things. People today worship money, sex, sports, and themselves. Nobody bows down before their true God and Creator

For this reason God gave them over to degrading passions; for their women exchanged the natural function for that which is unnatural, and in the same way also the men abandoned the natural function of the woman and burned in their desire toward one another, men with men committing indecent acts and receiving in their own persons the due penalty of their error. Romans 1:26-27

Because the world has rejected God, he gave them over to their own sins. You wonder why people are so sick and perverted these day, God has granted them their free will to indulge in their sinfulness. However the consequences of sin is death, since the world worships the creature rather than the Creator, they will all perish. Only through the blood of Jesus Christ, can anyone be saved

Heavenly Father, we pray that everyone comes to know you, to acknowledge you and give thanks for your great love and mercy, in Jesus name Amen

REPENT

Thus I will punish the world for its evil And the wicked for their iniquity; I will also put an end to the arrogance of the proud And abase the haughtiness of the ruthless. Isaiah 13:11

We talk a lot about the Good News (Gospel) of Jesus Christ, however there is some bad news also. Sin that is not atoned for will be punished. Anyone who does not repent and accept Christ as their Lord and Savior, their sins will be punished. You might ask why or how is this fair?

Everything has consequences, even if you don’t believe in God your actions have consequences. For example if you murder someone, good chances you are going to prison for a long time or maybe sentenced to death, regardless if you believe in God or not. This is called the “Moral Law” and its one of the many proofs that God exists. We as humans know right from wrong morally because there is a God.

God has a plan to restore creation, in order for paradise to be restored, evil must be purged. All sin is evil, all sin didn’t come from God. In fact all sin goes against creation. The reason God hates sin is because sin leads to destruction and death. All sin must be removed in order for Gods perfect Kingdom is restored once again

For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord. Romans 6:23

The consequences of our sin is death, our only hope to eternal life is through Jesus Christ. But you must truly Repent meaning turn away from your sins, don’t pass up the free gift of God in Jesus, once judgement comes there will be no second chances!

Heavenly Father, we pray that everyone will come to repentance and be saved in Jesus name Amen!
