Has God Changed ?


Do I believe the ONE TRUE GOD, or the religions and words of men?

Old Testament; Malachi 3:6 “I AM the LORD, I do NOT Change”
New Testament; Hebrews 13:8 “Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever”

There is only ONE PLACE to find TRUTH. ONLY within the Book where GOD HIMSELF gave mankind the Greatest Story Ever Told. The Book that contains the Past, the Present, and the Future of Humanity. Pre-Written History from the Mind of GOD HIMSELF.

The Judeo-Christian Bible in its Original Writings, is the One True Standard. All other forms of religious writings are called Religions. These are only the words of men. Given to men by Lucifer / Satan.

The following are questions I struggled with for over 3 years on my journey to faith. Here is what I found to be true when compared ONLY to the Truth contained in HIS SCRIPTURES.

Who is Satan?
• Lucifer (Son of the Dawn)
• Murderer, liar, thief, deceiver. He comes to kill and to maim.
• Angel of Light, walking the line between truth and error. Between night and day.

Has Satan Changed? No!
What is Satan’s objective: to deceive the world and take the eyes of people and their thoughts away from Jesus and His work on the Cross.

What is the end result of people who die without faith in Christ?
• To be judged and sent to Hell, forever.

Has God or His Word Changed since the beginning?
• No, but man has changed the meaning of Gods word to accommodate himself and to reflect himself and his desires and ways.

EUROPEAN CHURCH:
Is known as the Roman Catholic Church. They are the Roman System of Religion. The Lord would use the word catholic to refer to the Universal body of Believers in Him. That is not the definition of the Roman Catholic Church.

As Christ called the Pharisees the blind leading the blind…so to is the Roman System today.
• False Leader called the Pope.
• Steeped in Liturgy, Legalism.
• Its language not understood by followers but kept for the privileged Priesthood.

The Roman System of today is unchanging in its teachings. But its teachings do not stand when compared to ONLY The Word of GOD.

Comments On Roman Catholicism by Pastor/Teacher John Barnett

The Gospel that the Roman Catholic Church offers has been perverted, and consequently will not save its adherents. It has added to the Word of God by acknowledging the Apocrypha as part of the Holy Scriptures. It has added to the Word of God by elevating Catholic traditions, laws and decrees to the same status as the Word of God! In addition, it has arrogantly declared the bishop of Rome to be the infallible leader of the entire Church. It invented the doctrine of a non-existent place called Purgatory. There is no Scriptural support for traditions and practices such as the sacrifice of the Mass, transubstantiation, prayers and Masses for the dead, indulgences, the worship of Mary, prayers to the saints, adoring a piece of bread, the use of icons in worship, holy water, rosary beads and scapulars, a Roman Catholic priesthood, the demand of celibacy from these priests and nuns, and confession to priests to obtain absolution. It has multiplied anathemas against Protestants and against good Protestant Biblical doctrines. I believe that anyone who can’t say that the Roman Catholic Church teaches a different and distorted Gospel (see Galatians 1:6-9), should be removed from any position of authority.

The PROTESTANT SYSTEM in Europe is equally dead today, because it DID change to accommodate people and their desires. People will always want Atheism or Agnosticism or any Religious System without consequences or accountability.

AMERICAN CHURCH continued the growth of the Protestant Church of the Reformation. The Protestant Church is the firstborn of the Roman System.
• Multiple Denominations.
• Multiple Teachings, fundamental, prosperity, liberal, humanistic, etc.
• Multiple ways of Worship.
• The Protestant Church is in a state of organized chaos. Much is right and much is wrong. People need discernment as to where to attend church.

Satan flourish’s in an environment where truth and error are taught.
Why does Europe have a dead church? Why is the American Church on life support, hanging between life and death?

BECAUSE OF:
• Materialism. We no longer need our daily bread from God.
• Lack of suffering and poverty. We are not weak in our own eyes, but strong and self- sufficient.
• No recognition of a Holy and Righteous God who will not look upon sinful people.
• No preaching of Sound Doctrine or Heaven or Hell, no fear of God.

WE MOCK our God. Yet the Psalmist says God Will NOT be Mocked.
I ask again, has God or His Word ever changed since the beginning.

Three Questions in Scripture that upset me:

1. The Lord asks His Church:
Luke 18:8 “When the Son of Man comes, will He find faith on the earth?”
(Scripture teaches that Faith comes by hearing the Word of the Lord… are we hearing the Word of The Lord?)

2. The Church asks The Lord:
Matthew7: 23 “Not everyone who says to Me , Lord, Lord, will enter the kingdom of heaven. Many will say to Me on that day,

{Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in Your name, and in Your name cast out demons, and in Your name perform miracles?}
…and then I will declare to them, I never knew you, depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness.” To depart from Jesus is to go to Hell for Eternity.

( How do we know we believe…by having Faith that produces good fruit in the form of Good Works…does your life reflect your Faith in Christ?)

3. The Lord asks You:
Matthew 16:15, “But who do YOU say that I am? And Peter said, You are the Christ the Son of the Living God!”

(How can we answer that question unless we have been discipled in the whole council of God …that leads each of us to REPENTANCE.)

What is the Definition of the ONE TRUE Church of CHRIST:

The Church is a new “NON DENOMINATIONAL” creation, in which redeemed Jews and redeemed Gentiles have mutual fellowship and union with God, through the Messiah, Jesus The Christ….Gods Son.

The Church is to be a place of Discipleship, where Believers are trained to go out into the world to reach the lost. NOT A PLACE filled with Unbelievers that come to experience multi-media presentations. Like catching an entertaining theater production.

Who said they would build the Church?
• JESUS said He would build HIS Church, not the Pastor.

God has always proclaimed in His Word that He foreknew His children in Eternity Past, before the Foundations of the World were ever made. And that in every generation there would be few, not many, who would come to know Him. He calls those few in the Old Testament the Remnant. In the New Testament they are the Elect.

Those that will come to Christ are those drawn by God Himself.
They will be people seeking after God. They will be people who are drawn to God by seeing Believers who are a light in the darkness of this world.

Believers who stand alone in contrast to this world of, wrong is right… and right is wrong. Believers, who live in Joy despite their pain. The Church and its people must be different than this worlds religious systems and the world’s culture.

People drawn into Churches by Pastors using today’s methods of marketing, making the Church the same as the world; are giving people a loving and friendly place to go to Hell.

God has not changed nor will HE be Mocked. God’s message of Redemption through HIS Savior or, Death in Hell without the Savior, has not changed.
The Prophets of Old preached this message, Christ Himself preached the same message and pastors must preach it as well. The Church is a place of refuge, a radically different place than the cesspool of sewage that surrounds it.

YOU are all called to be a PILLAR of FIRE. God does not want YOUR light hidden under a basket ! Today JESUS Calls you to War. Tomorrow JESUS will Take You to Heaven.

Ill-Never-Change
