Hi xxxxxx and zzzzzzz

Just a few thoughts!

About the movie which is about to be released:

The Passion of Christ

From what I have been reading about this movie, I see the real Possibility of two things coming out of the showing of this movie.

1. The anti-Semitism rising all across the country, including in the Christian Churches, as Prophecided.

2. The False Revival in the Churches which has been prophecided.

We will have to watch to see what will develop.

I can not shake the strong feeling that this film is Satanic in both nature and purpose.

With the Love of Jesus

From a trusted True Christian to Jack Barr


Hey Jack,

Ok I have seen the passion of the Christ movie. I don't know what Mel was thinking. That movie won't even save souls. It just focuses on the last few hours of our LORD's life. Yeah, sure it showed Jesus being beaten. But that's mostly about all it focuses on. Where is the message of salvation? Yeah sure it hinted at it when it showed some flash backs. But really, where was the message of salvation? Ok, so Jesus said "no greater love then this that one man lay down his life for his friends". AND?? You would expect more huh? But NO!! It just showed fragments of the last supper, the betrayl of Judas, and some flash backs of his earthly ministry. But that was it, just flash backs. It kind of annoyed me. Here's something else that annoyed me even more. It showed flash backs of Peter saying "LORD I'd die with you, go to prison with you." Then Jesus tells him "you'll deny me three times before the crock crows". And you know that Jack? THE CROCK DIDN'T EVEN CROW!! It was suppose to crow right when peter realize what he did and went to the flash back of what Jesus said, it was suppose to crow right there as the scriptures say. And I was waiting and it didn't even crow. Suppose to show the fulfillment of God's word. But did it? NO!!

Mel surely did a good job twisting the bible. Satan was shown at the garden where Jesus was praying before he got arrested. Satan was telling Jesus "can one man really carry the burden of sin and yada yada..." Extra-biblical things that didn't even happen. And where were the angels that were to appear and strenghten our LORD Jesus? They weren't even there. Oh and when Jesus was carrying the cross. You know he didn't carry the cross that far because he was all weak from the beating. Well in the movie Jesus carried it really far before they finally found someone else to carry it (that person didn't even want to carry the cross and argued with the guard about it.). Then they beat Jesus again. And when Jesus drop the cross as he and that other guy carry the cross together, they beat him again. And kicked Jesus so hard and so much that his bones look like they were gonna be broken. Of course we all know that none of Jesus bones were broken, but that movie seem to give a different impression. Oh and that famous story about how Jesus said "let he who has no sin cast the first stone". All they showed was the people droping the stone and Mary crawling towards Jesus. Not even a line that hint at it. You know what Jack, if I wasn't a Christian and knew very little about the bible, that movie would only show me that it was the Jews who wanted Jesus dead and it was their fault because they rather release a murderer than Jesus. I wouldn't of catch any of the part about him dying for my sins. To me it's just a movie about the beating of Jesus. What does your church think about it?

Yours in Christ,

Hi vvvvvvvv,

Thank you for your observations and comments On the movie "The Passion of Christ".

I do not know what the people from my church thinks of it. I haven't heard from any of them, even if they did go to see the movie. I did not try to go to see this movie. I had enough of it just from the previews shown on TV.

I believe that all of the True Christians would have the same view of the movie that you have. But the ones who are just playing church will declare it to be such a great movie, just because they really do not know anything of what the Bible says.

That there is no salvation message in this movie is not a surprise to me. I had sent a message to both xxxxxx and zzzzzzz about a week ago, telling them that I expected this movie, while not anti-Semitic, or satanic, in itself, and while not faulting Mel for his making of this movie, would lead to the start of the False Revival which has been prophesied, and would lead to the rise of Anti-Semitism, in this country, and in the Churches of this country, which has also been prophecided. What I felt, and still feel, very strongly, is that while neither Mel, nor the movie itself is bad, that the movie, in purpose and timing, is Satanic. That is, I believe that Mel has been led, without his knowledge, by Satan to make this movie.

There has to be a trigger to start both the False Revival, and the Rise of Anti-Semitism, in the Churches of this country, and all around the world. I believe that it is this movie which will be just that trigger. I believe that if you watch, you will see that this will happen.

The False Revival will be in the Christian Churches, but the True Revival will not be in the Churches, but will be in the highways, and byways of each nation, and will come about through the persecution of the True Christians. I believe that the True Christians will see the False Revival and Anti-Semitism in the Churches for what it is, Satanic, and thus when they object to it in their own Churches, will either leave on their own, or will be thrown out of their Churches for crying out against both the False Revival and the Anti-Semitism.

Time will tell if this is correct.

With the Love of Jesus

Hi, all

From Jack Barr

I am sending this to you for you to look over. Perhaps you will find the information at the listed web site interesting. I have received much of this information from other sources previous to this one. I had been shown by the Lord that there was something wrong with this film, and why it was made, before it was shown in the theaters, and so I did not go to view it. However Someone who is very close to the Lord God Jesus Christ, and whom I trust, did go to see it and came away reporting their disappointment that throughout the film that there was NO Salvation Message. And that is in keeping with the following.

Good Morning Jack!

Thought youd might want to have a look at the responses this article generated. I sent it to you and posted it at Rapture Ready for discussion. Below is the link to the now locked discussion. Im not very popular at the moment. :)




Hi nnnnnnnnn,

Went and looked at it, and it reads just as I thought that it would. As we know, not everyone who claims to be a Christian really is a Christian. They go to church and follow a minister, or a denomination, but they do not follow Jesus. They are only playing Religion. And anyone who upsets them with even an small bit of truth causes them to rise up and to kill the messenger, because it brings conviction, and conviction hurts.. They will find any way that they can to believe what they want to believe, and how dare anyone tell them that something is not of God, when they want to believe that it is!!! If Jesus came into their church, they would throw him out. They are like the Pharisees who followed God in their own way, and rejected everything that Jesus said. And yes, they did Kill the messenger then too.

My son was just here and we spoke of the film "The Passion of Christ". He said that he was trapped into going to see the film, and that all through the film he kept feeling that he should get up and get out of there. He said that if is wasn't that he was with someone, he would have left the show early. He agreed that there was NO Salvation message in the movie. And that they twisted everything out of the truth of the Bible, adding and subtracting as they pleased. He said that he had gone to Mel Gibson's web site and asked questions about why they didn't use the KJV, and why they twisted the Bible Story, which questions were never answered. He said that he could not find which bible version that scriptures was quoted from in the movie. (after searching several different bible versions) He also told me that he saw a man that he works with at the movie theater, and that he talked to him later at work, and that man also told him the he didn't see any salvation message in the move either.

Then my son said that he read on one of Mel Gibson's web sites that Mel explained Jesus as "an obscure Jewish carpenter who appeared to be the Messiah." at http://www.passion-movie.com/english/ And that statement alone denies that Jesus is the Lord God.
[This site that he found is an Unofficial Fan site, however, It can be believed that as a fan site, that they would love to quote their hero Mel Gibson. The following below is taken from that web site]

From http://www.passion-movie.com/english/index.html

The Story [highlighting and underline in the story added by me]

THE PASSION OF THE CHRIST is a vivid depiction of the last 12 hours of Jesus Christ's life.

Sometime around the year A.D. 30, in the Roman province of Palestine, an obscure Jewish carpenter named Jesus of Nazareth began to teach publicly and to proclaim the coming of a 'Kingdom of God.' For centuries, the Jewish people had expected the appearance of a promised deliverer known as the Messiah --a figure who would restore their ancient dignity, and free their sacred homeland from all evil and despair. In the minds of many, Jesus appeared to be this Messiah. Surrounded by a core group of twelve disciples, Jesus began to attract a massive following from among the common people of Galilee and Judea, who eventually praised him as their Messiah and King. However, Jesus also had many enemies in Jerusalem. The Sanhedrin, a governing senate composed of the leading Jewish priests and Pharisees, conspired to put Jesus to death.

With the aid of Judas Iscariot, a member of Jesus' own inner circle, the Sanhedrin succeeded in arresting Jesus, handing him over to the Roman secular authorities on unsubstantiated charges of treason against Rome. Although Jesus consistently maintained that his Kingdom was a heavenly and spiritual one, the Roman procurator Pontius Pilate, faced with the possibility of a riot, ordered that Jesus be taken outside the city and crucified as a common criminal.


From http://www.passion-movie.com/english/faq7.html

Q. I heard that Mel Gibson was inspired to make this movie because of a book he read. Can you tell me more about this?

(A) One of his motivations was a book called "The Dolorous Passion of Our Lord Jesus Christ" by Anne Catherine Emmerich. The book contains reflections on the Last Supper, the Agony in the Garden, the Arrest, the Scourging, the Crucifixion and the Resurrection of Jesus Christ. To hear Mel Gibson talk about this book and find out more, click here.

The sales pitch for the book which is claimed to be the one which led Mel Gibson to make the move after reading:

What motivated Mel Gibson to make "The Passion of The Christ"? One of the reasons was this book that he accidentally stumbled upon; it planted a seed in his mind and finally played a large role in motivating him to make the film. While "The Passion of The Christ" is based on the Gospels of the Bible, this book played an instrumental role in Mel Gibson's motivation to make his new and stunning masterpiece.

"The Dolorous Passion of Our Lord Jesus Christ", by Anne Catherine Emmerich, is faithful to the Bible story of the Passion and death of Jesus and is edifying and inspiring; plus, it is surprising and heart-rending. It will melt a heart of stone. Includes a short biography of Emmerich. A great book for the whole family!

Anne Catherine Emmerich was a nun that lived in Germany between 1774 to 1824. "The Dolorous Passion of Our Lord Jesus Christ" contains visions and reflections of Anne Catherine Emmerich concerning the Last Supper, the Agony in the Garden, the Arrest, the Scourging , the Crucifixion and the Resurrection of Jesus Christ. It recounts the incredible horrendous sufferings undergone by our Saviour in His superhumanly heroic act of Redemption. The book begins with a biography of Anne Catherine Emmerich, and then contains her reflections on The Passion of Jesus. This book conveys the a lasting impression of the terrible Agony of Our Lord, of His infinite love for us that motivated His Agony, and how His Passion and Death were brought on by each person's sins. Here is a book that gives one a holy feeling just to read it.

[This site is selling this book, Mel is making every penny he can off of this movie.]

Note: Reports are that this nun twisted the bible scriptures in her book and added much that was never in the bible. These non scriptual events are in the movie.


Four your information:

About the lead man who plays Jesus in the film. From http://www.swisswebworks.com/tribworks/gold/index.html? Which is the web page you posted.

Jim visits Medjugorje in Bosnia often to kneel before a statue of the Queen of Heaven, whom he "invited into his life" before being chosen for Passion. "The catharsis for me to play this role was through Medjugorje, through Gospa. In preparation, I used all that Medjugorje taught me."

Note: I did a study some years ago about the appearance of Mary at Medjugorje, and documented to my satisfaction that that appearance of Mary there was entirely Satanic. That Mary, sought after worship, and commanded many things that people should do, which was forbidden in the Bible. And this man brought to the film what he learned at Medjugorje.


Look on the Bright side!! The more that they hate you, the more Jesus Loves you!!! And yes you are popular, popular in Heaven. Perhaps a few people out there who did not write in condemning you will actually start looking at the facts and will turn to Jesus for the Truth. The ones you are reaching on that web site are the ones who are not posting back to you, the ones you are reaching are just lurking, reading what is posted and makeing their own decisions of who is telling the truth.

With the Love of Jesus

Thank you the the heads-up. The links to the page are very informative as well. I did see the movie and watched the religious leaders of that era crucify Christ as not being any different that what we have today. Leading people that are trying to save face and establish their own kingdoms perpetuating a religious economic system of patronizing exclusives, while getting the rest of us to pay for it while we still have the poor among us. I pray that God seal me and protect me and us from the deluge of deception that is to follow after this movie.

Hi kkkkkkk,

Thanks for your input. From what I am seeing, those who really belong to Jesus Christ are seeing through the deception. And all of the rest are swallowing it hook, line, and sinker.

It is just another sign that we are in the last second before the Lord returns.

I do not fault Mel Gibson for making the movie, for he made it for money, and he is making money, a straight business venture. Nor do I fault the film itself, for I realize that it was made by Pagans, for Pagans. And the people today want to see Blood and Gore in all their films today. Poor Mel does not know how he has been manipulated by Satan to make this film. I see this film as the trigger which will start the False Revival in the Churches, which the Lord said will come before the True Revival which will take place in the streets and allys, in the woods and swamps of the world.

During this False Revival in the Churches, the true Christians will be driven out of the organized Churches. Brother, I welcome you into the True Church of Jesus Christ, the Church which will lead the True Revival later.

But you know also, that this film will also trigger an antisemitism movement within the Organized Churchs. And the Lord will have no mercy on anyone who takes part in this antisemitism movement against His Chosen People. It must come, for Israel must be attacked by many nations, but woe to those who take part in that attack. This will be part of the start of WW3.

Subject: Re: Questions about movie

In answer to an email I received about what I sent out about the movie "The Passion of Christ".


I'm confused.

I see people getting saved from the Movie Passion.
Getting saved is good. Even 1 salvation is worth the movie.
What is our responsibility to the movie? Is it the message or the resume of the cast?

I also read about how many "thousands" have accepted Jesus after seeing this movie.

How is this a delusion? How is this part of the great fallling away?




Hi xxxxxx,

Let me see if I can clear this up for you.

First, I have never told anybody to not see the movie.

Second, I have never told anyone to come down on Mel Gibson for having made the movie.

Third, If Satan himself told you the Gospel message, you could come to salvation. (This is only a truth!! This does not imply, or say, that Mel is Satanic.)

Let see if I can explain a little farther.

I have no problem with Mel Gibson making all the money he wants off of this movie, for that is why he made it.

We have seen down through the last several hundred years where people have been led to salvation by people who did not have salvation themselves. An example is a case here in America, where in the 1800's two men who did not have salvation themselves, started traveling from New York to, I believe it was Texas. all along the way, whenever they ran short of money they would hold a revival in whatever town they happened to be in at the time. They preached the Gospel Message, led many hundreds to salvation, and pocked the collection money. The fact that they did not have salvation themselves has no effect on those who listen to them. When you hear the Gospel Message, regardless of who tells it to you, and God calls you to come to Him, if you respond, you have salvation. But does this apply to the Movie "The Passion of Christ"?? See my answer below.

I know of letters received by our local Rescue Mission, from men who had stopped there as they passed thorough, who were relating how a message that they heard preached at the Rescue Mission led them to go into a church and give their heart to Jesus, many months later. You do not have to see them come to the Lord as soon as they hear the Gospel Message, It might be months or even years later when they respond to the Call from God to come to Him. You can never go the God anytime you want to, you can only go to God when He Calls YOU, and sometimes He calls you many times before you either come to Him, or He cuts you off..

With that in mind, we can be sure that those persons who are coming to the altar to accept Jesus Christ after seeing the movie, had heard the Gospel message before that, and had been ignoring the Call of God for some time. Then while seeing the Movie, God called them again, and they went to God that time. They are NOT being saved by seeing the Movie, they are being saved by having heard the Gospel message before that. And while you are hearing of some coming to salvation after seeing the movie here in this country, look out at how many other countries that movie is being shown right now, and you do not see or hear of those people flocking to salvation. Some yes, but not a flood. The Muslim countries want to see the movie just to see how cruel the Jews were. Many are drawn to the movie because of the Blood and Gore, and violence in the movie, for that is the standard by which they now judge movies. I wonder, would they flock to see the movie if there was NO Blood or Violence??

I agree that even one salvation is good, And I praise the Lord God for every one of them. But remember this, Satan will lead one to true salvation IF by doing so he can trick thousands into going to hell.

See Acts 16:16-18 "And it came to pass, as we went to prayer, a certain damsel possessed with a spirit of divination met us, who brought her masters much gain by soothsaying. The same followed Paul and us, and cried, saying, These men are the servants of the Most High God, who show unto us the way of salvation. And this did she many days. But Paul, being grieved, turned and said to the spirit, I command thee, in the name of Jesus Christ, to come out of her. And he came out the same hour."

That evil spirit that the woman had, was telling the truth, which may have led some to accept the Gospel which Paul was preaching. So why did Paul cast that demon out of her?? If that evil spirit was telling the truth, why was it important to stop it from speaking??? If that movie is telling the truth, which it is not, how does that compare to the situation in Acts 16:16-18 ?? In the case of Paul, and the demon in the girl, while she spoke the truth right then, it can be seen that if Paul permitted it to continue, then after Paul left there, the evil spirit would tell any lie it wished, and the people would accept it as being true, because Paul accepted the fortunetelling she did and what she said as being true, while he was there. Even though the message was true, it was from the Wrong Source!!

So what about the movie? What is being shown is lie after lie as being the truth, The Passion of Christ did NOT happen the way that the movie shows it, adding and subtracting from the Bible story, twisting the Gospel, is preaching a New Gospel!! And minister after minister is crying out to the world how good and great these lies are, and when one says that it twist the scriptures, the ministers, and all that follow them say," but look at how many were saved", implying that all these lies brought on the salvation of thousands, and therefore it has to be ok. That is a big lie in itself.

Mel Gibson and his fans admit that the subtitles you read on the bottom of the screen does not match what they were actually saying on the screen, so they change the subtitles to suite the audience they are showing it to, If a church, or peoples, objects to what a subtitle says, they just change it before showing it to that church, or peoples. What they are speaking on the screen still says the same thing that was objected to, but now the subtitle does not match. That is deception isn't it? They tell you that they just change the subtitles to different languages. But then otherwise admit what I said in this first sentence of this paragraph. The subtitles do not match what is said. What are we to believe. Tell them what ever they want to hear to make the sale!!

Does it matter how sinful the actors are who were chosen to make the film?? Yes it does, Remember Paul and the girl with the evil spirit. Just as it mattered to Paul, who, or what, was telling the people that he was telling them the true way to salvation. Yet there are many out there who thinks that it does not make any difference.

If they were led by The Lord God Jesus Christ, instead of being led by Satan, they would have objected to the twisting of the Bible scriptures, and would have refused to do the parts which showed another Gospel. If they were led by the Lord God Jesus Christ, they would not be playing virtualy any part in all of the modern movies, which has ramped sex scenes, or the foul language.

Now about the so called miracles which happened on the set while making the movie. There is their word, and no documentation of the people healed, etc.. However, if there were miracles on the set, how do you know that it was not Satan who did the miracles?? ( I know, they will now say, 'but how do you know that any miracle is from God') You do know that Satan can, and does, do miracles also!! And if it would help to spread the lie Satan wants spread by this movie, Satan would not hesitate to do some. Look at the miracles that Satan did in Egypt! Moses did a miracle, and Satan's priests did the same miracle. Satan is a copy cat, and wants to copy everything that God does. Their telling you about miracles happening on the set while making the movie, is not glorifying Jesus Christ, it is helping them to SELL their movie, and in doing so to make even more money. They do not glorify God, they tell you that the movie has to be approved by God because of the miracles. And that itself is a Lie. God is NOT Glorified by this movie, or by anything they have done.

We have NO Responsibility to the Movie!!! Neither the message is good, nor is the cast good!! We have a responsibility to Jesus Christ, and to the True Gospel, a responsibility to tell people when we see the twisted Gospel being told as the true Gospel, that it is a Lie, and not true, and to not believe what is coming from False Prophets who are teaching a New Gospel. For that is what this movie is, a new Gospel.

This is not necessarily part of the great falling away, what this will be is two things.

1. The trigger, or event, which will start the great False Revival within the organized Churches.

2. The trigger, or event, which will make the antisemitism grow at a rapid rate, both in the organized Churches, and around the world. You will see shortly where even the Churches preach from the pulpit hate against the Jews.

Now go before the Lord God Jesus Christ, and have Jesus confirm, or deny, what I have said above.

With the Love of Jesus

I have just read the articles that you sent me concerning this movie. Please feel free to send this message to any one you feel that you should.

Since I started hearing about this movie I had a growing feeling that it was not made for the glory of GOD. I was how ever put in a position where I went to see the movie. From the time that I entered the theater I felt very uncomfortable, like I should not be there. I was in a position that I had to stay so I asked the Lord to give me protection from what ever was wrong with this movie. Since I saw this movie I stopped reading my bible every day and found my self reverting back to a lot of my old habits.

After reading the articles that you sent me I now realize why this happened. I was not strong enough to withstand the Satanic influence of the movie. I knew that there was something wrong with this movie, but did not realize the effect it could have on people, Christian or not, it had given Satan a chance to get back in my life.

I did not notice all of the things that they pointed out in the articles but it was still clear to me that Mel Gibson did not make this movie for GOD. The story was not accurate with the Bible, he added a lot that was not in the scriptures, and there is little or no chance that any one will get saved from watching this movie. After reading these articles I believe they are correct in their review of the movie. In the movie there was a lot of things that did not make sense,( the scriptures made perfect sense when I read them ) this should tell you that the movie is NOT OF GOD.

I sincerely hope that all the people who have said that this movie is scriptural and factual will realize how wrong they are and make repentance to the Lord. I will be praying for all people who have seen this movie to hear the real word of GOD and come to know and follow the LORD JESUS CHRIST and not the Christ of this movie.

Subject: Kill the Messenger

Hi All,

Having seen many forums which attack anything to do with what they do not believe in themselves, I felt that I should write the following. A prophecy forum which I subscribe to would most defintently not allow the posting of this message, as every one of them who normally respond, and argue with each other over the end time prophecies in the Bible, would feel the Conviction, as any posting which attempts to show the truth of what the Bible prophecies are saying is severely attacked by all of them. Yet there are hundreds of people who only lurk there, reading, but not taking part in the cat fights.

The following article has to do with All Prophecies which are given by God's Prophets, be they in times past, in the present, or will give in the future. A Prophet is a Messenger. They come in two kinds. The True Prophet from God, and the False Prophets. I speak below of the True Prophets of God, and what the Word of God has to say about them. From the Beginning people have always tried to Kill the Messenger, The True Prophet of God, because they did not like the message which God sent to them.

God's Prophets, His Messengers through which the Lord God Speaks to the People, and Leaders of the People, today, are still being attacked with every attempt to kill the message, to discredit it messenger. The Leaders in the Church are First in line to reject, and attack, the word of God from the Prophets of God, just as the Pharisees did with Jesus.

Killing The Messenger

By Rev. Jack Barr

April 25, 2004

And the Lord sent his Word to the people, and the Leaders of the people, through messengers who were called Prophets in the Old Testament, and in the New Testament.

Amos 3:7 Surely the Lord GOD will do nothing, but he revealeth his secret unto his servants the prophets.

Jeremiah 1:7 "But the LORD said unto me, Say not, I am a child: for thou shalt go to all that I shall send thee, and whatsoever I command thee thou shalt speak."

1 Corinthians 12:28 And God hath set some in the church, first apostles, secondarily prophets, thirdly teachers, after that miracles, then gifts of healings, helps, governments, diversities of tongues.

And the messengers said, "you are not following the Lord God Almighty, this is what you must do to turn from your ways and to return to the Lord God."

Isaiah 45:19 "I have not spoken in secret, in a dark place of the earth: I said not unto the seed of Jacob, Seek ye me in vain: I the LORD speak righteousness, I declare things that are right."

Jeremiah 44:4 Howbeit I sent unto you all my servants the prophets, rising early and sending them, saying, Oh, do not this abominable thing that I hate.

And the people and Leaders said "I do not like what you are saying, tell us only what we want to hear."

Isaiah 30:10 "Which say to the seers, See not; and to the prophets, Prophesy not unto us right things, speak unto us smooth things, prophesy deceits:",

2 Chronicles 36:16 "But they mocked the messengers of God, and despised his words, and misused his prophets, until the wrath of the LORD arose against his people, till there was no remedy.",

1Ki. 22:13, 2 Chron 18:12

Then they killed the messengers

1 Thessalonians 2:15 Who both killed the Lord Jesus, and their own prophets, and have persecuted us; and they please not God, and are contrary to all men:

Romans 11:3 Lord, they have killed thy prophets, and digged down thine altars; and I am left alone, and they seek my life.

Acts 7:52 Which of the prophets have not your fathers persecuted? and they have slain them which shewed before of the coming of the Just One; of whom ye have been now the betrayers and murderers:

Then God came down to the earth Himself as Jesus Christ.

John 1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.

John 14 And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.

And Jesus said to the people and the leaders of the people " you are not following the Lord God Almighty, this is what you must do to turn from your ways and to return to the Lord God." And the people and Leaders said "I do not like what you are saying, tell us only what we want to hear."

Isaiah 30:10 "Which say to the seers, See not; and to the prophets, Prophesy not unto us right things, speak unto us smooth things, prophesy deceits:",

Then they killed the messenger.

1 Thessalonians 2:15 Who both killed the Lord Jesus, and their own prophets, and have persecuted us; and they please not God, and are contrary to all men:

Romans 11:3 Lord, they have killed thy prophets, and digged down thine altars; and I am left alone, and they seek my life.

Acts 7:52 Which of the prophets have not your fathers persecuted? and they have slain them which shewed before of the coming of the Just One; of whom ye have been now the betrayers and murderers:

And the messenger rose up on the 3rd day from death and went back into heaven.

Acts 10:41 Not to all the people, but unto witnesses chosen before of God, even to us, who did eat and drink with him after he rose from the dead.

1 Corinthians 15:12 ΒΆ Now if Christ be preached that he rose from the dead, how say some among you that there is no resurrection of the dead?

And since that time, the Lord God has sent his word down to the people and Leaders, in many different ways, and by many different messengers. And the messengers say to the people and leaders, "you are following the wrong path, you are being led down the path to destruction by this man, this doctrine, these things, this church, and you must turn aside, rejecting these false teachings and beliefs to follow Me."

Jeremiah 44:4 Howbeit I sent unto you all my servants the prophets, rising early and sending them, saying, Oh, do not this abominable thing that I hate.

And the people and Leaders said "I do not like what you are saying, tell us only what we want to hear."

Isaiah 30:10 "Which say to the seers, See not; and to the prophets, Prophesy not unto us right things, speak unto us smooth things, prophesy deceits:"

2 Chronicles 36:16 But they mocked the messengers of God, and despised his words, and misused his prophets, until the wrath of the LORD arose against his people, till there was no remedy.

Then they work hard to kill the messenger. Attacking them every way they can. They attempt to discredit them, to quote twisted doctrines and scriptures as a smoke screen to hide the truth.

None of them like the message, for the true message from God brings Conviction, and Conviction Hurts.

Acts 2:37 Now when they heard this, they were pricked in their heart, and said unto Peter and to the rest of the apostles, Men and brethren, what shall we do?

Hebrews 4:12 For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.

The people and leaders are like Cain who insisted on worshiping God his own way, and they will always be hurt by God's True Word, and they will always try to Kill the Messenger, just as the people and leaders have down through the ages..

The Lord God speaks through the Messenger today, telling the people and leaders "This is NOT of God", but the people and leaders love what is not of God, so they shout down, and try to kill the messenger. They say "How dare you say that!", "That can not be right because ---" and they give any reason.

Jeremiah 35:15 I have sent also unto you all my servants the prophets, rising up early and sending them, saying, Return ye now every man from his evil way, and amend your doings, and go not after other gods to serve them, and ye shall dwell in the land which I have given to you and to your fathers: but ye have not inclined your ear, nor hearkened unto me.

Jeremiah 44:4 Howbeit I sent unto you all my servants the prophets, rising early and sending them, saying, Oh, do not this abominable thing that I hate.

The Messenger today is the Voice crying in the Wilderness.

Go ahead and Kill the Messenger, God makes note of who will listen to His Messengers, and who will not. Do you really believe that just because you go to Church that you will not be turned over to a Reprobate Mind to believe a Lie??

Romans 1:28 And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient;

So very many of you believe that God does not speak to anyone today, because you can not hear Him speak to you. So many of you today believe that anything said which will challenge your cherished Beliefs can not possibly be from God.

Do you really believe that there are no Prophets who speak God's Word today?? If you do, then you are calling the Bible a lie. For the Lord God has placed Prophets in the Church today.

1 Corinthians 12:28 And God hath set some in the church, first apostles, secondarily prophets, thirdly teachers, after that miracles, then gifts of healings, helps, governments, diversities of tongues.

The Lord God has said to do My Prophets No Harm.

Psalms 105:15 Saying, Touch not mine anointed, and do my prophets no harm.

And the Lord God has said to Despise not Prophecies.

1 Thessalonians 5:20 Despise not prophesyings.

Before you reject any message, you had better search the Word of God, and to Go Before the Lord God asking for Him to show you the truth. Is this of You God, or is it Not of You God! For only God can give you the absolute truth.

Before you reject any message today, you had better be absolutely sure that it is a false message from a false Prophet. Yes, there are many false Prophets out there, but God also has His Prophets out there also. See that You do NOT Kill one of God's Prophet when they speak to you.

And if you feel hurt, or upset by this message, which is not aimed at any one person, then you are probably feeling that prick of Conviction, for the above is only what the Bible says.

May the Lord God Lead you into All His Truths
