Truth Provided Newsletter 8-18-1999
There is a reason for this hatred
This has to be one of the most difficult newsletters I have ever written. But I feel must share with you so that some of you who have expressed concerns about this very same situation will be better equipped in the future to deal with attacks such as this. ANOTHER of the prophecies that Jesus said must occur IS being fulfilled as we speak, and has been for some time now. Our Lord Jesus said that, "...because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold." (Matthew 24:12) Jesus said this to better prepare us for when loved ones or even complete strangers come against us in regards to the truth in His Word that we preach. The come against us because they believe what the false prophets have spoken unto them.
My ministry was once described in this way... I am as one that is walking down the street late at night where there are many homes on both sides of the street. Each home has a raging fire burning from within it while the occupants are unaware and asleep in their beds. I am going house to house banging on their doors trying to warn them of the very real danger within their homes. And when they are awakened by my shouts and loud bangings, MOST of them curse me with hate filled words for waking them out of their sound and blissfull sleep. They ignore the flames in their homes, they refuse to warn their loved ones, they lash out at me with hatred, and they go back to sleep! Very few heed the warnings and actually make it to safety in time. Why am I sharing this with you? The other day I received a letter from a loved one that shocked me to the absolute core. I will not at this time share with you as to who this loved one is, nor will I share the letter at this time, suffice it to say it is from one that is very much into the Catholic "faith." One that I have warned for years that their home is burning from within. And one that I pray for daily as well. This letter is without a doubt, to date, the most hate filled venomous letter I have ever recieved in the 14 years that I have been ministering to Catholics. Not one Scripture, not one loving rebuke, not one gentle evangelistic suggestion, not one word of concern. But sentence after sentence of hate filled words from the cesspool of hell itself. This letter prompted me to look back at the massive and numerous attacks of hades that I have seen over the years. Since beginning my ministry of exposing the lies of the Vatican I have seen a bevy of hate filled attacks such as these. But all pale in comparison to the pain this one has inflicted. Keep in mind that these attacks are because of my bold stand on the Scriptural facts that I preach. For they have ALL said this is the reason for their "rebukes" against me and mine. I am called a CrAzEd Bible thumper, a Legalistic catholic basher, or a Fundamentalist geared for hatred. Well, words against me are one thing. But this list I share with you below is quite another. Keep in mind I share this with you so that when these things begin happen to those of you who share their faith with others, you may be better prepared knowing that this is common place for those of us that hold to the Truth filled Words within the pages of the Holy Bible...

Again, I am telling you of this to let you know to BE CAREFUL out there, and to let you know stuff like this IS happening! How can a world such as the one we live in today embrace the truths of a Mighty God? How can this world with all it's hatred and flesh pleasing rituals understand the Words of the very Lord God that created them? See the confusion with your own eyes so as to better understand what your up against. Place an open Bible before a loyal and loving intelligent Catholic, then place a "Catechism" of their church before them as well. And they will saddly choose the "Traditions of man" over and above the Word of God. Is this normal I ask of an intelligent person? NO! Can you imagine how this tears at the heart of the Lord? It's so sad! They ignore Him and His Word for the words their priests speak. We must understand with our heart of hearts people that "the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned." (1Corinthians 2:14) Therefore when we as ambasadors for Christ are compelled to warn those He sends our way using the Scriptures of this Creator, we will find it angers them to the very point of hatred simply because they CANNOT see what we see. "Blessed are ye, when men shall hate you, and when they shall separate you from their company, and shall reproach you, and cast out your name as evil, for the Son of man's sake." (Luke 6:22) We must ALL understand that they are not attacking us personally. They are just attacking the truth we bear witness to. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE Don't let them get you down so as to prevent you from doing as you are called to do. And don't let them trick you so that you roar back at them with the same hatred. For if you do that, the enemy will have gained a foothold upon you and your calling thereby making your walk less effective. Understand and SEE the graphic and prophetic confirmation of your Christian walk by looking upon the hatred they openly express for it. For this Jesus we worship told us this would happen. Look unto Jesus and see how He loved them unconditionally regardless of their open and vile hatred of Him and His Word. Jesus said, "If the world hate you, ye know that it hated me before it hated you. If ye were of the world, the world would love his own: but because ye are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hateth you." (John 15:18,19) We are hated for the simple fact that we hold to His Word with all our hearts being a "peculiar people" unto all that look upon us. It is the Words of the very God we worship that angers the spirit of the world that holds them captive. Should we lash out with hatred as well and tarnish the Kingdom we know is ours? Shall we ignore them and show them our King is not interested in their hell bound plight? Of course not!
Matthew 5:44, "But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you;"
The lovely King Jesus is so faithful people! Love them with this same peace that we see in our Jesus. Let them see your firm and undying acceptance of Him and all His Word entails. Let them see the peace you have in Jesus regardless of the way they treat you. This has to effect them! This has to make them think that you have something they want! In such a world as fast paced and nerve racking as this one, the peace we potray has GOT to turn heads! I have seen this time and time again. Many have come against me in a multitude of ways since I left the Roman Church. Loved ones, Family members, Friends, and even complete strangers have stepped up to proclaim me a man confused by the agents of hell. Openly they speak of us in ways that would anger even the strongest "self controlled" person. Yet, we with the Lord Jesus at the core of our self stand firm! And they see this in us people! They actually SEE this!! They see that we are not moved by the words or ways of their world. For it is only the Words of the Lord that we respond to. NONE will ever be able to come forward with Scripture to verify their claims against you and me. Never once will they be able to prove anything they say against you, me, or any true child of the Creator in any way whatsoever as long as we stand firm in Jesus and keep our eyes and our hearts in His Word on a DAILY basis! And the enemy that gives them the words that they fling at us knows it! This is why only insults and hate filled words are flung about to try and anger us, trip us up, or get us to fall to the level of hellish hate. Yet we turn our cheeks in Jesus. The enemy that supplies them with such words is aware that the Scriptures cannot be used against the true and trusting child of God. For he knows that when they are used, the child of the Almighty will do exactly as Jesus taught us to do in the desert. We will place those Words IN CONTEXT so as to explain the true meaning of the Word spoken, thereby exposing the lie spewed by the "accuser of the brethren." So, like a rat cornered grinding its teeth, the enemy will suggest insults to flow. And more often then not, they flow. So BE PREPARED! GET IN HIS WORD! THE TIME IS SHORT!
2 Timothy 2:15, "Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth."
1 Peter 3:15, "But sanctify the Lord God in your hearts: and be ready always to give an answer to every man that asketh you a reason of the hope that is in you with meekness and fear:"
We must also understand people that our loved ones IN the Catholic church and all the other churches that embrace her lies are being attacked on a daily basis with very well organized "suggestions" that dim the Light of Scriptures WE PREACH. This causes them to flog us in VERY hateful ways when we do what His Word asks us to do. *\~WARN THEM~/* We do this simply because we love them, but they see it as if we HATE them. Antichristian demons are blinding them with Catholic theology which was written solely to degrade Scripture. Keep that in mind! WE are preaching Scripture that they "think" has been diminished legitimately by their leaders! So be prepared to share with them the IN CONTEXT meaning of the Scriptures their leaders twist. Want to know how easy it is to do this? Most of the time all you need to do is share with them the verses BEFORE and AFTER the verse they give you to prove what it really means. Try it! It works! I have seen MANY eyes pop wide open with that approach!
Oh, by the way... How often do hear about how priests look at the "Un-Catholic" or "lost" as USELESS BOTHERSOME HERETICS instead of "fields ready for planting?" The Priests way is to attack, and teach their congregations to attack those that are not Catholic. Their evangelism is such that they would rather tell their congregations to HATE the "unsaved or lost or heretic" instead of preaching unto them the truths of Scripture.
The decree set forth in the year 1229 A.D. by the Council of Valencia... places Bible on The Index of Forbidden Books. The doctrine withholds "it is forbidden for laymen (common man) to read the Old and New Testaments. - We forbid them most severely to have the above books in the popular vernacular. The lords of the districts shall carefully seek out the *heretics* in dwellings, hovels, and forests, and even their underground retreats shall be entirely wiped out." Council Tolosanum, Pope Gregory IX, Anno. Chr. 1229 (*emphasis added*)
"The church may by Divine right confiscate the property of *heretics*, imprison their persons, and condemn them to the flames." -Vatican II (*emphasis added*)
Did you notice they proclaim to "seek out the heretic..." until their "wiped out." No mention of opening their Bibles to share with them their "Catholic theology" or their "Catholic Jesus." No, instead the Roman Church teaches their parishiners to "seek them out, wipe them out, confiscate their property, imprison them, and condemn them to the flames!" With theology such as this, the result is always the same. YOU WILL BE HATED! You see how the devil has confused this instituion? They themselves are the lost and unsaved as the Scriptures define, yet those of us that are the Christians choosing to WARN them of their error are called hatemongers. We are those that embrace the Bible, and for doing that we are labeled heretics. You see how cunning the devil can be? I wrote a short article once entiled "The definition of a cult" (cult.htm) In it I share Biblical facts describing what a cult actually is. And then I share facts that prove the Roman Catholic Church is actually a cult as the Bible defines. Still we see that the devil has been able to decieve BILLIONS in and outside the Roman church with great ease. He has been able to get them to believe the inventions of this church are of God, and those that embrace the Bible OF God are cults! And guess what... MANY people choose to believe the devil! Why?
2 Thessalonians 2:10-12, "And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved. And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness."
Is not the Roman church's theology a STRONG DELUSION of Biblical proportions? Are not BILLIONS effected by its easily proven errors? Look as well to the so called Protestant churches of today. They embrace almost ALL that the Catholic Church has invented as Biblical doctrine, REGARDLESS of the fact that there are no Scriptures to support them. The Roman church has even made an open and blunt statement to this very fact in regards to the Sabbath in this "Catholic Press" article... (art21.htm) The Roman Church states bluntly that they INVENTED SUNday keeping, and ALL the Protestant Churches embrace their invention as Biblical doctrine regardless of the fact that there is not one verse to support it from Genesis to Revelation. And I have documented quotes from MANY Church denominations agreeing that there is not one verse to support SUNday keeping. If you would like a free copy, just ask. It's so sad. If these people would just open their Bibles and r-e-a-d it they would see they are being lied to. So many inventions of Catholicism are seen in ALL the Christians churches of today. Plus, many of the Non-Christian churches do as this Beast in Rome has suggested as well!
Revelation 13:3, "...and all the world wondered after the beast."
My friends, understand that these ARE the last days! mothers shall go against their sons, fathers likewise against their daughters and vise versa. Brothers shall speak out against their sisters as often as sisters condemn their own brothers. For it is written...
Luke 12:53, "The father shall be divided against the son, and the son against the father; the mother against the daughter, and the daughter against the mother; the mother in law against her daughter in law, and the daughter in law against her mother in law."
EXPECT IT! For this is a prophecy of the Almighty Creator of the Universe, and we know that He is no dime store 1-900-IMA-LIAR psychic! He is 100% accurate to the very letter on each and every prophecy ever uttered by Him in His Word. He not only created all that is seen and unseen. He also created the "time" that hides many prophecies from our view simply because we have not arrived at that "time" yet. He is NOT a "Nostradamus" false prophet who mixes lies with truth as does the Roman Church to gain credibilty in the eyes of those that won't read their Bibles. For if they read their Bibles with faith they would see these lies as easy as we do. This God we worship is not some demon floating in a grotto calling itself "Mary" so as to openly lie unto the loyal Catholics with so called "messages from Heaven". (See this fake "Mary" Biblically exposed at... Notmary.htm) This Lord Creator and Almighty King we worship is a God that needs not lend Himself to "apparitions" or "visions in black mirrors!" This is a God of TRUTH! Stand with HIM for He has spoken His truth unto us in advance so as to strengthen our faith when we see it come to be. For Jesus Himself has said unto us that, "...I have told you before it come to pass, that, when it is come to pass, ye might believe."(John 14:29)
My friends, soon if not already, we all shall see attacks upon us in ways that will tear at our hearts as well as our spirit. Be prepared! Read your Bibles! Read you Bibles! Read your Bibles! So when the attacks come -AND THEY WILL- you will be heard praising the Lord and His Truth as did Paul and Silas behind the bars of steel. You need to also understand where the bulk of this attack is being orchestrated from. You need to do your own research if you have not already done so on the inner workings of the Vatican as well as all it's many "colleagues. To give you an idea of how dangerous the Vatican is, see this article...
HOLY OFFICE STILL EXISTS
Pope John Paul II Revives Inquisition
By Kathleen R. Hayes
Feb 1991, NRI Trumpet Page 3
The thought of a revived Holy Office of the Inquisition would pacify some and offend others. Nevertheless, the "Holy Office" still exists. Only it's name has been changed. Pope John Paul II has been instrumental in its revival.
One may argue that this Ratzinger run agency is merely an attempt by the Catholic Church to root out communism or backslidden priests and their practices. However, with John Paul II's objective to implement "God's mandate" by creating a global church-state which will administer from traditional Roman Catholic theology, is enough cause for alarm. Malachi Martin has already stated in his book, "The Keys of this Blood," that the pope will not tolerate any belief systems that oppose his, not on a civil or church level. In John Paul II the world will behold a tyrant who will coldly execute direct orders against those whom he deems are heretics or immoral. Moreover, like his papal predecessors, John Paul II will carry out his "Godly mandate" in the name of Christ, or perhaps Mary. May God help us all.
The wound is almost healed, the inquisition is now REVIVED, and it is here to "pacify" those that speak out against all that the Roman Church of hell teaches. And yes, it does "offend" many. Now do you understand why the Roman Church is so into politics? Now do you understand why the Roman Church is so interested in solidifying her stand as the STATE church of the USA? Now do you understand why the enemy needs to get CLOSE to you, even in your households as Jesus prophecied? Now do you see that the "deadly wound" of Revelation 13:3 is almost totally healed upon this Beast? Between the years 538ad to 1798ad (Thats 1260 years as prophecy stated) The Beast reigned and killed over 100 million Christians. Some students of prophecy proclaim an even higher number. Yet do you hear of this in our history books? NO! Yet this Roman Beast has surpassed Hitler more than 16 times over!
Soon even those hardcore Scripture haters will realize the truth. Saddly, most of them will learn too late. This is why we MUST continue preaching unto them regardless of how much hatred they give unto us. I beg of you. ALL of you reading this newsletter. Read your Bibles DAILY! PRAY with and for your loved ones DAILY! Pray for the faithful and Commandment keeping Remnant DAILY! Ask the Almighty to strenghten them so as not to get discouraged by the attack coming from the enemy DAILY! For the attack is getting VERY CLOSE, and he is doing this to discourage the preaching of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. For the enemy knows if he can pull on your heart strings and convice you to not "rock the boat" you WILL be his! Open your eyes and look around. See the enemy coming closer, even into your own homes! Understand that you ARE his target! And he will use ALL that he has as weapons against you. He won't hesitate to use those you love dearly. For it is written that, "a man's foes shall be they of his own household." (Matthew 10:36) But remember, it is also written that, "Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world."(1 John 4:4)
And faithfully remember...
"No weapon that is formed against thee shall prosper; and every tongue that shall rise against thee in judgment thou shalt condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the LORD, and their righteousness is of me, saith the LORD."(Isaiah 54:17)
EXPECT IT! HAVE FAITH! BE PREPARED! READ YOUR BIBLES! PRAY! AND SEE JESUS GLORIFIED!
John 16:33, "These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world."
Truth is truth
