JENNIFER – Despite the culture wars, Jesus is still Lord. (Stock.xchng)

As news editor for Charisma magazine, I read hundreds of stories every week about the good, bad and ugly. Unfortunately, most of it is bad and ugly.

Through this lens, it’s clear that anti-Christ agendas and false gospels are rising. In the world, we see the homosexual agenda, the socialist agenda, the atheist agenda and so on. In the church, we see the hypergrace movement, sexual scandals in the church and cessationist wars that grieve the Holy Spirit.

Still, Jesus is Lord.

1.   CHICO – JENNIFER LECLAIRE IS CORRECT WHEN SHE SAYS: QUOTE, it’s clear that anti-Christ agendas and false gospels are rising.  In the world ENDQUOTE. “BUT, SHE IS DEAD WRONG WHEN SHE SAYS AND I QUOTE, we see the hypergrace movement, sexual scandals in the church and cessationist wars that grieve the Holy Spirit.”

THERE IS NO “HYPERGRACE MOVEMENT, SEXUAL SCANDALS” NOR “CESSATIONIST WARS”  IN THE CHURCH (BODY OF BELIEVERS), PERIOD!!!  I DO BELIEVE THAT THERE ARE THESE THINGS HAPPENING IN “ RELIGIOUS ORGANIZATIONS IN THE WORLD.”

TRUE BELIEVERS IN CHRIST JESUS HAVE THE HOLY SPIRIT LIVING INSIDE THEM.  Galatians 2:20  I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but  “Christ liveth in me:” and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me.   THE HOLY SPIRIT, “ INSIDE THE BELIEVER,” WOULD NEVER ALLOW “ THE BELIEVER “ TO PARTICIPATE IN THESE, (HYPERGRACE MOVEMENT OR SEXUAL SCANDALS), UNGODLY ACTS.

  •  cessationist -Web definitions In Christian theology, Cessationism is the view that the miraculous gifts of the Holy Spirit, such as speaking in tongues, prophetic utterances and faith healing, ceased being practiced early in Christian Church history.  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cessationist

CHICO – CESSATIONIST WARS ONLY EXIST WITHIN RELIGIOUS ORGANIZATIONS, DENOMINATIONS OR GROUPS. GOD’S WRITTEN WORD SAYS IN   1 Corinthians 14:33  For God is not the author of confusion, but of peace, as in all churches of the saints.   John 14:26  But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, “He shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you.”  Hebrews 13:8  Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and to day, and for ever.  Philippians 2:2  Fulfil “ ye my joy, that ye be likeminded,” having “ the same love,being of one accord, of one mind.” If the religious community, (all denominations), had the same love,being of one accord, of one mind, there would be “ No need “ for these cessationist wars. Hello!!!  

JENNIFER – Over the Thanksgiving break, I was encouraged by some seemingly trivial observations. For example, the Gideon Bible was still in my drawer at the Embassy Suites in downtown Tampa . When I went down for breakfast, a couple sitting next to me held hands and prayed over their meal in the name of Jesus. In nearby St. Petersburg , a nativity scene was displayed in all its glory.

Yes, the culture wars are real. The atheists really are trying to drive Christianity out of the public square, and radical gay activists really are trying to redefine traditional marriage. Yes, there is trouble in the church. High-profile pastors really are falling into sexual immorality or committing suicide. Yes, it’s likely to get darker in the days ahead.

Still, Jesus is Lord.

2.  CHICO – CULTURE WARS, AS JENNIFER LECLAIRE DESCRIBES, ARE REAL “ IN THE WORLD,” BUT GOD’S WRITTEN WORD SAYS IN  JOHN 15:19 THAT WE ARE NOT OF THIS WORLD, PERIOD!!!John 15:19  “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.  Ephesians 2:2 Wherein in time past ye walked according to the course “ of this world,” according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that “ now worketh in the children of disobedience:”  John 18:36  Jesus answered, My kingdom is “ not of this world:” if my kingdom “ were of this world,” then would my servants fight, that I should not be delivered to the Jews: but now is my kingdom not from hence.  1 John 2:15 “ Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world.” If “ any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him.”  1 John 2:16  For “ all that is in the world,” the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is “ not of the Father, but is of the world.”  1 John 4:3  And every spirit that confesseth not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is not of God: and this is that spirit of antichrist, whereof ye have heard that it should come; and even now already is it “ in the world.” 

JENNIFER – Peter warns us, “Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil walks about like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour” (1 Pet. 5:8). And to that I say a hearty amen. But nowhere in that verse does it call us to be paranoid or to be afraid of what will happen next. In fact, the Bible tells us repeatedly to “fear not.”

3.  CHICO –  WHY DOES JENNIFER LECLAIRE  INSINUATE IN THE SENTENCE ABOVE, THAT THE READER IS PARANOID OR AFRAID OF WHAT WILL HAPPEN NEXT???

JENNIFER – Paul warned us not to be ignorant of the devil’s devices (2 Cor. 2:11). Again, I say amen. But the apostle didn’t intend for us to exalt the enemy over Jesus. We need to put on our spiritual armor because we are wrestling against principalities and powers and rulers of the darkness and spiritual wickedness in high places (Eph. 6:12). But God always leads us into triumph in Christ (2 Cor. 2:14).

4.  CHICO – AGAIN, WHY WOULD JENNIFER LECLAIRE ASSUME THAT THE READER INTENDED TO EXALT THE ENEMY OVER JESUS???

JENNIFER – We need to put on our spiritual armor because we are wrestling against principalities and powers and rulers of the darkness and spiritual wickedness in high places (Eph. 6:12 ). But God always leads us into triumph in Christ (2 Cor. 2:14 ).

5.  CHICO –  AS NEW BABY BELIEVERS IN GOD’S WRITTEN WORD, (JESUS), WE DO NEED TO PUT ON THE WHOLE ARMOUR OF GOD. THE ARMOUR IS FOR BATTLE AGAINST THE ENEMY, BUT ONCE WE HAVE KNOWN THE TRUTH, (JESUS), WE DON’T NEED THE ARMOUR, ALL WE NEED TO DO IS TO STAND FAST IN THE LIBERTY . THE WORD OF GOD, (JESUS) IS OUR LIBERTY!!!  Romans 8:37 Nay, in all these things “ we are more than conquerors through him that loved us.”  John 8:32 And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall “ make you free.”  John 8:36 If the Son therefore “ shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed.”  1 Corinthians 15:57 But thanks be to God, which giveth us “the victory” through our Lord Jesus Christ.  1 John 5:4 For whatsoever is born of God “ overcometh the world:” and    “ this is the victory that overcometh the world, even our faith.”  Galatians 5:1  Stand fast therefore in the liberty wherewith Christ hath made us free, and be not entangled again with the yoke of bondage.

JENNIFER – Each and every week, I sound the alarm through this column because we need to be sober and vigilant; we need to be educated about the devil’s devices; we need to be equipped to wrestle against that which is wrestling against us. But this week I am blowing the trumpet in Zion  and sounding an alarm in God’s holy mountain (Joel 2:1). I would encourage you to read Joel 2 in its entirety. We need to heed God’s Word in this hour. We need to continue issuing the call to repentance in the church.

6.  CHICO –  JENNIFER LECLAIRE SAYS, QUOTE: “We need to continue issuing the call to repentance in the church.” ENDQUOTE. DID JENNIFER LECLAIRE FORGET WHAT GOD’S WRITTEN WORD SAYS IN  Hebrews 6:4 “ For it is impossible for those “ who were once enlightened, and have tasted of the heavenly gift, and were made partakers of the Holy Ghost,  Hebrews 6:5 And have tasted the good word of God, and the powers of the world to come,  Hebrews 6:6 “ If they shall fall away, to renew them again unto repentance;” seeing “ they crucify to themselves the Son of God afresh, and put him to an open shame.” Read that again!!! It is impossible…. 

JENNIFER – Then the Lord will be zealous for His land. Then God will pour His Spirit out upon us so we won’t grow weary in this wrestling match—and we won’t grow paranoid or fearful either.

7.  CHICO – JENNIFER LECLAIRE DON’T YOU KNOW THAT GOD HAS ALREADY POURED OUT HIS SPIRIT ON US. IT’S PEOPLE SUCH AS YOURSELF THAT CONFUSES THE BABY BELIEVERS WITH YOUR FALSE TEACHINGS.  Acts 2:4 And  “they were all filled with the Holy Ghost,” and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance.   Acts 2:38 Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and “ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost.”  Acts 10:45 And they of the circumcision which believed were astonished, as many as came with Peter, because that  “ on the Gentiles also was poured out the gift of the Holy Ghost.”  Acts 4:8  “Then Peter, filled with the Holy Ghost,” said unto them, Ye rulers of the people, and elders of Israel,  Acts 4:31 And when they had prayed, the place was shaken where they were assembled together; and “ they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and they spake the word of God with boldness.”

8.  CHICO – BEWARE OF FALSE TEACHERS SUCH AS JENNIFER LECLAIRE.  Jude 1:4 For there are certain men crept in unawares, who were before of old ordained to this condemnation, ungodly men, turning the grace of our God into lasciviousness, and denying the only Lord God, and our Lord Jesus Christ.   1 Timothy 1:7  “Desiring to be teachers of the law; understanding neither what they say, nor whereof they affirm.”  Hebrews 5:12 For when for the time ye ought to be teachers, “ ye have need that one teach you again “ which be the first principles of the oracles of God; and are become such as have need of milk, and not of strong meat.   2 Peter 2:1 But there were false prophets also among the people, even as there shall be false teachers among you, who privily “ shall bring in damnable heresies, even denying the Lord that bought them, and bring upon themselves swift destruction.” Acts 5:38 And now I say unto you, Refrain from these men, and let them alone: for if this counsel or this work be of men, “ it will come to nought:” 1 Corinthians 2:6 Howbeit we speak wisdom among them that are perfect: yet not the wisdom of this world, nor of the princes of this world, “ that come to nought:”     

JENNIFER – Spiritual warfare is a reality, but Jesus is still Lord.

  2. An Oregon Observer says:

    Jennifer LeClaire is an obsessed with the occult. Charisma Magazine needs to fire her before she bring more embarrassment on the publication and web page.

  3. An Oregon Observer says:

    Jennifer LeClaire is obsessed with the occult and is Gnostic and not Christian. She is a loon.

  4. Stella says:

    Chico and Debbie, check that you are not being used by satan to fight His saints. I don’t know you and I don’t know Jennifer. I am basing my comment on what you wrote and I am convinced your write up is not of God and actually makes absolutely no sense. May God help us all

    • Stella, by your own admission, you don’t know us, yet you are criticizing us. Get thee behind us satan.
      Stella, you bring back to my memory this verse.
      1 Peter 4:15 But let none of you suffer as a murderer, or as a thief, or as an evildoer, or “as a busybody in other men’s matters.” Stella you are playing a dangerous game criticizing children of Almighty God.
      Do you even have a clue what a saint is?
      Jennifer is no saint!!! We rebuke you in the name of Jesus Christ.

    • Heldon says:

      I agree with you Stella. You don’t need to know someone “personally” to test the spirits. It’s about doctrine. I see traces of false doctrines on this page too mixed with truth. However, Chico and Debbie are right in identifying LeClaire as a false teacher.

  5. Heldon says:

    Quote: AS NEW BABY BELIEVERS IN GOD’S WRITTEN WORD, (JESUS), WE DO NEED TO PUT ON THE WHOLE ARMOUR OF GOD. THE ARMOUR IS FOR BATTLE AGAINST THE ENEMY, BUT ONCE WE HAVE KNOWN THE TRUTH, (JESUS), WE DON’T NEED THE ARMOUR, ALL WE NEED TO DO IS TO STAND FAST IN THE LIBERTY . THE WORD OF GOD, (JESUS) IS OUR LIBERTY!!!

    Putting on the armor as taught by Paul in Eph. 6 and to never let our guard down is not optional; it is absolutely necessary in order to “withstand in the evil day” and it’s a matter of constant spiritual training to get used to do so. It is presumptuous (and really dangerous) to think and teach that the spiritual armor is for babes in Christ.

    “Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might. Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places. Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.! (Eph. 6. 10-13)

    ______

    In his first letter, Peter also warns to be vigilant:

    Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil walks about like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour. (1 P. 5.8)

    Who is Peter addressing this warning to in this chapter? Certainly not spiritual babes! Clearly specified: He’s writing to the elders and shepherds of the flock (verse 1).
    _______

    Therefore let him who thinks he stands take heed lest he fall.
    (1 Co. 10. 12)

    Context here shows clearly the danger of tempting Christ with practicing sin (taking Christ for granted using “grace” as an excuse). The problem today is that the biblical expression “saved by grace” is seriously misunderstood and taken out of context. Using verses about grace in that sense as an excuse to sin is profanation of grace. “Not under the law” is only applicable if one walks in the Spirit: see Gal 5. 13-18!
    _______

    Other trace of false doctrine is teaching the “PreTribulation Rapture” as a doctrine. There’s nothing in the Scripture stating that the First Resurrection (and the Rapture – or Ascension of the living believers) would occur before the Tribulation period. If you study all the passages it seems more likely to happen during the second half of Tribulation (which is called the Great Tribulation). Thus PreTrib Rapt may be suggested as an hypothesis, it should never be taught officially as a doctrine.
    _______

    That’s why I agree with Stella’s comment above to make sure you are not being used by Satan. In this hour, there are many servants of Christ, some very well intentioned, who are teaching a distorted gospel and erroneous doctrines that are nor from God that they’ve been fed with in their religious system.

    My brethren, let not many of you become teachers, knowing that we shall receive a stricter judgment. (James 3.1)

    • Heldon, I responded right below your questions and or remarks.

      Heldon, you wrote: Putting on the armor as taught by Paul in Eph. 6 and to never let our guard down is not optional;
      Chico wrote: *** Absolutely Heldon, I agree with you, but did you intentionally leave out or did you not understand Heb 6:1-3?
      Hebrews 6:1 Therefore “LEAVING THE PRICIPLES OF THE DOCTRINE OF CHRIST, LET US GO UNTO PERFECTION; NOT LAYING AGAIN” the foundation of repentance from dead works, and of faith toward God,
      Hebrews 6:2 Of the doctrine of baptisms, and of laying on of hands, and of resurrection of the dead, and of eternal judgment.
      Hebrews 6:3 And this will we do, if God permit.
      With all due respect Heldon, It’s obvious you have not gone past this area in your spiritual walk. And there’s a reason why you haven’t gone unto perfection. God’s Written says in
      Philippians 3:15 Let us therefore, “as many as be perfect, be thus minded:” and if in any thing ye be otherwise minded, God shall reveal even this unto you.
      Matthew 5:48 Be ye therefore “perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect.”
      Heldon, let’s go back to your first day in school, by the end of the year, did you stay in the first grade or did you go on to the second grade to learn something else?
      By the way you write about your spiritual understanding, it seems that you stayed in the first grade. Let’s continue with your debate. ***

      it is absolutely necessary in order to “withstand in the evil day” and it’s a matter of constant spiritual training to get used to do so.
      Chico wrote: *** Heldon, Our example is Jesus Christ. When John the baptize baptized Jesus He went into the wilderness to get tempted by satan. Jesus received The Holy Spirit at the time of His baptism, which means that Jesus had the power to rebuke satan. When we are baptized in the name of Jesus we also receive God’s Holy Spirit in us. Philippians 2:13 For it is “God which worketh in you BOTH” to WILL and to do of HIS GOOD PLEASURE.” Therefore Heldon, if God is in us we don’t need the armor, God does it all through us, period. Why would we need the armor when we have the one who conquered satan already?When I was growing in my spiritual walk I was not aware of that fact, but NOW I KNOW WHO I AM IN CHRIST JESUS.
      1 Corinthians 13:11 When I was a child, I spake as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child: but when I became a man, I put away childish things.
      {Now that I am a man that has intensely studied God’s Written Word for 51 years, I Speak, Think and Understand as a man of God. I am a Spiritually Mature, KJV Bible Believing Man, with the Wisdom, Knowledge and Understanding given to me by the Holy Spirit; because God’s Written Word is in me and I am FILLED With the Holy Spirit.} 1 Corinthians 2:15 But he that is spiritual judgeth all things, yet he himself is judged of no man.
      1 Corinthians 2:16 For who hath known the mind of the Lord, that he may instruct him? “But we have the mind of Christ.”
      Hebrews 6:1 Therefore “LEAVING THE PRICIPLES OF THE DOCTRINE OF CHRIST, LET US GO UNTO PERFECTION; NOT LAYING AGAIN….” ***

      It is presumptuous (and really dangerous) to think and teach that the spiritual armor is for babes in Christ.
      Chico wrote: *** Heldon, Again! 1 Corinthians 13:11 When I was a child, I spake as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child: but when I became a man, I put away childish things. Are you still a child Heldon? You need to go and pass unto perfection if God permits. ***

      Jesus also said this about the unbeliever in John 10:26 But ye believe not, because ye are not of my sheep, as I said unto you. John 6:64 But there are some of you that believe not. For Jesus knew from the beginning who they were that believed not, and who should betray Him. ***

Heldon, you said and I quote you: “If you study all the passages it “SEEMS” more likely to happen during the second half of Tribulation. End of you quote. Heldon, the word seems is indicating that you are not sure when the rapture will happen. I on the other hand, I am sure that the rapture “WILL HAPPEN BEFORE THE GREAT TRIB.” The reason you are not sure and use the word seems, is because you don’t have God’s Holy Spirit of discernment. 2 Corinthians 4:4 In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them.
      Religious people don’t believe because they don’t have the Holy Spirit, period!

      Good bye.

  6. Heldon says:

    First of all, the Bible version I’m using is not a “counterfeit” as you call it. It is a New King James Bible.

    As a linguist, I should probably tell you that what is basically written in a newer translation of an old document is not changing. What is changing (and constantly evolving through centuries) is THE WAY THE PEOPLE ARE SPEAKING and WRITING. So unless you’re born in 1600, it won’t make any difference.

    Now let’s go to your first quote…

    Q: Hebrews 6:1 Therefore “LEAVING THE PRICIPLES OF THE DOCTRINE OF CHRIST, LET US GO UNTO PERFECTION; NOT LAYING AGAIN” the foundation of repentance from dead works, and of faith toward God, Of the doctrine of baptisms, and of laying on of hands, and of resurrection of the dead, and of eternal judgment.

    Do you know what the author of Hebrews is talking about here? And to whom he is writing?

    He is trying to get the Jewish believers – who were making no spiritual progress but were regressing instead – to understand that going back to the TANAKH’s OBSERVANCE (the full Law of Moses) will profit them nothing for it is equivalent to denying Christ. In other words, they were trying to pour new wine in old wineskins. Those are the “dead works” the author is talking about. It has nothing to do with OBEDIENCE TO GOD which IS STILL required in the New Covenant.

    The average believing Jews of that time were so confused that many of them even thought that observing the Law could save them. Those who believed in this error were called LEGALISTS. That’s why Paul, in his letters, had to explain several times to the Jews of different churches (inside and outside of Israel) that the Law was actually NEVER intended to save anybody in the first place; it was intended for sanctification – which is a totally different thing. Israel still needed faith for salvation and obedience to God through Law was the external way to perform it and perfect it.

    On the other side, the Gentiles who were joining the churches had no understanding/knowledge of those differences and swung the pendulum the other way thinking Paul was teaching that obedience to God was no longer necessary. Doing so, they created another problem in the church which is ANTINOMIANISM. That’s why Paul had to correct the errors on both sides (Jews and Gentiles). This is also why the apostle James had to tell the people that faith without works is DEAD (chapter 2):

    “What does it profit, my brethren, if someone says he has faith but does not have works? Can faith save him?” (v.14)

    Implied answer is NO it can’t. The so called “Salvation by FAITH ALONE” is an oxymoron because it does not exist. Faith is NEVER alone. Antinomianism, as much as legalism, is a cancer in the body of Christ. It is the very doctrine that has created the Sardis and Laodicean types of church and that has paved the way for the great apostasy we are now witnessing.

    “(…) I know your works, that you have a name that you are alive, but you are DEAD. Be watchful, and strengthen the things which remain, that are ready to die, for I have not found YOUR WORKS perfect before God”. (Re. 2.1-2)

    The full 2nd chapter of James and the messages to the 7 churches (along with many other passages of the NT) are all saying that WORKS are not the antithesis of faith but its produce.

    Q: THE ARMOUR IS FOR BATTLE AGAINST THE ENEMY, BUT ONCE WE HAVE KNOWN THE TRUTH, (JESUS), WE DON’T NEED THE ARMOUR

    Do you realize that what you’re saying here doesn’t make any sense?

    Like if you needed a spiritual armor before you knew Christ!! No, the spiritual armor isn’t for unbelievers (for they are in the enemy’s camp at that point; they’re not fighting against darkness, they’re part of it!). As Jesus said, Satan cannot be divided against himself (Lu 11.18/Mt 12.26). The armor is for the believers only and it starts as soon as you are born again.

    And what is the spiritual Armor about?

    Belt: TRUTH
    Shield: FAITH
    Helmet: SALVATION
    Breastplate: RIGHTEOUSNESS
    Sword of the Spirit: the WORD of GOD
    Sandals: GOSPEL of PEACE

    If you think these elements are unimportant to a believer at any time of his life as a Christian, you are totally deceived. Not only you desperately need the armor but in your case, you should also consider eye salve, clean garments and refined gold (Rev. 3. 18).

    Now concerning the Last Trumpet: That’s true. I am not sure when the Last Trumpet will sound. God forbid! I refrain from pretending to know when the LORD will come and gather His elect because Jesus Himself said NO ONE KNOWS, nor the angels nor even the Son of men but the father only (Mt. 24.36). Are you better than Jesus and the angels?

    In one of his excellent revelations about the First Resurrection (1 Thessalonians 4-5), Paul bothers to mention that they [the brethren] knew perfectly that the day of the LORD would come “as a thief in the night”. In other words there was NO WAY to tell; the whole chapter 5 of 1st Thessalonians is about preparation, getting ready, being sober and vigilant so this day wouldn’t overtake them as a thief.

    “But let us who are of the day be sober, putting on the breastplate of faith and love, and as a helmet the hope of salvation.” (v. 8)

    Ain’t that interesting that Paul in this same context, while talking about the sons of light being vigilant and making themselves ready for that day, bothered to mention that they were doing so by putting on their SPIRITUAL ARMOR?

    Chico wrote” *** Heldon, “GOD CANNOT BE TEMPTED, PERIOD!!!” I assumed you knew God’s Word. James 1:13 Let no man say when he is tempted, I am tempted of God: for “God cannot be tempted” with evil, neither “tempteth he any man:”
    James 1:14 But every man is tempted, when he is drawn away of his own lust, and enticed. ***

    Really? Chico, you failed to go back and read the whole passage I summarized here when I quoted 1 Corinthians 10.12. Doing so, you would have had the right context > Here’s the whole passage (1 Co. 10. 7-10)

    “And do not become idolaters as were some of them. As it is written, “The people sat down to eat and drink, and rose up to play.” Nor let us commit sexual immorality, as some of them did, and in one day twenty-three thousand fell; NOR LET US TEMPT CHRIST, as some of them also TEMPTED, and were destroyed by serpents; nor complain, as some of them also complained, and were destroyed by the destroyer. Now all these things happened to them as examples, and they were written for our admonition, upon whom the ends of the ages have come.”

    I did not invent this. It is written “TEMPTED” here. Twice. The thing is, in this particular context, the word TEMPTED has not the sense of “God being enticed by sin” but more of “provoking God to anger or into executing judgment”. In the other cases, even if God cannot fall into sin, it is still a sin and a grievous offense (Deut. 6.16) to TRY tempting God (or tempting anybody else as well).

    Ironically you mentioned Jesus in the wilderness. Well, it’s exactly what Satan was doing there. He was trying to TEMPT Christ…

    Luke 4.1-2. 13:
    “And Jesus being full of the Holy Ghost returned from Jordan, and was led by the Spirit into the wilderness, being forty days TEMPTED of the devil. ”

    “And Jesus answering said unto him, It is said, Thou shalt not TEMPT the Lord thy God.”

    When James writes: “Let no one say when he is tempted, “I am tempted by God”; for God cannot be tempted by evil, nor does He Himself tempt anyone” he’s not saying that no one can provoke God nor is he suggesting that God could sin.

    So Chico, before you tell me I don’t know God’s Word…

    Now about Satan fleeing from us believers because he “sees Jesus in us” is absolute B.S!

    Chico, you better start knowing your enemy better than that if you want to stand a chance to make it. If Satan has the nerves to try to Tempt the Son of God Himself, how do you think he could be scared of you? Far from being scared, Satan is ROTF especially when he deals with carnal so easy to deceive Christians walking in the flesh and believing in fake theologies and doctrines of demons.

    This fable “God only sees Jesus through you” is is utter nonsense that is found nowhere in the Scripture as well as the unconditional “eternal security” you are preaching. Chico, what you are believing and spreading is NOT the word of God but the teachings and doctrines of men!!! At least LeClaire is right about this: THERE IS effectively a HYPERGRACE movement and it’s one of Satan’s masterpiece and most destructive force in this age. I could quote literally hundreds of verses proving that “imputed justice” through Christ is not all what salvation is about. Far from that, in all times of history, salvation has ALWAYS been by FAITH (and never by works) but was never unconditional. Works are the manifestation attesting the true, genuine, biblical faith. No works no faith.

    Q: 1 Corinthians 13:11 When I was a child, I spake as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child: but when I became a man, I put away childish things. Are you still a child Heldon? You need to go and pass unto perfection if God permits.

    LOL Not only you’re out of context again but you also missed the point of what Paul is saying. What Paul is calling “childish” here in his analogy is the limited power of temporal spiritual gifts (temporal as is childhood) compared to imperishable love that will never cease. Ever heard of a godly thing called LOVE, Chico? If you want to tell everybody how to “go unto perfection” I can give you a hint: repenting from your own lack of respect to other believers (and bloggers) and from your spiritual pride and arrogance would be a good start.

    To conclude, I’ll say you are pretty arrogant when calling me “incapable of discerning”, telling me to “go back to grade 1” when you do not even understand biblical context in virtually anything you are quoting from the Bible. I would call this spiritual and doctrinal illiteracy.

    “Now the purpose of the commandment is love from a pure heart, from a good conscience, and from SINCERE FAITH, from which some, having strayed, have turned aside to idle talk, desiring to be teachers of the law, understanding neither what they say nor the things which they affirm.” (1 Tim 1. 5-7)

  7. Heldon, Can you explain, (to me) why “The New King James” changed the word Jesus from the verse to Joshua.
    THE KING JAMES VERSION OF THE BIBLE SAYS JESUS IN Hebrews 4:8 For if “Jesus” had given them rest, then would he not afterward have spoken of another day.
    THE NEW KING JAMES VERSION OF YOUR FAKE DECEIVING BIBLE SAYS JOSHUA IN Hebrews 4:8 For if “Joshua” had given them rest, then He would not afterward have spoken of another day.

    You obviously did not view this video!!! I dare you to view this video below and then we can discuss your denial.

  8. Heldon says:

    You wrote: Heldon, Can you explain, (to me) why “The New King James” changed the word Jesus from the verse to Joshua.

    It’s because “Jesus” and “Joshua” are the same name. No mistake here.

    Since the Hebrew name “Joshua” was translated “Jesus” in the Greek, they wrote “Jesus” everywhere in the N.T. but kept its Hebrew form “Joshua” when translating the O.T. as they did also with the other names.

    But now this can be pretty tricky. In Hebrews 4.8, what the author is saying refers to *JOSHUA 22.4* in the O.T. Thus, while it was ok to translate “Joshua” to the name “Jesus” in the old KJV Bible (like for the rest of the NT), the editors chose later to change it back again to “Joshua” to avoid confusion (between the persons we now know as Jesus and Joshua).

    This is like when we call the mother of Jesus “Mary” in English (and differently in other languages). There is NOBODY in the Scriptures, Old or New testament, named “Mary”. The name is MYRIAM (like Myriam, the sister of Moses). Same thing applies to the names of the cities and countries. Not only the city names change through time but also through translation.

    It’s important that the people (especially the believers) understand this. I remember of a Jewish man mocking Jesus and the N.T. and calling it “a fraud” because “Jesus isn’t a Jewish name in the first place” and because “no presumed Hebrew apostle could ever be named Paul, John, Peter, James, etc”!! He just failed to realize what he was reading was a translation, and that their names were as Hebraic as they can be: “Yehoshua, Shaul, Yohanan, Shimon, Yaacov…”.

    That been said, whoever wants to strain a gnat can call every Bible translation “a fraud” for having names or words changed! There are lots of myths, lies, fallacies and conspiracy theories about the Bible circulating on the Internet – just too many. Just like that video you linked for me to watch.

    This thing about the KJV being the “only valid translation” is a persistent myth. Do you realize that the Bible was also translated in many indigenous languages and dialects, some of which had barely 1000 words? Just think about it for a moment… So, according to these wannabe “scholars”: if someone does not have the old King James version of the Bible, he doesn’t have the true word of God! Are you serious Chico?! Are you really buying that rubbish? Hey! What about all the people who existed A.D. on this planet (including all the English speaking people who lived before the KJV was ever written plus those who were illiterates)? And what about all the ones using one of the other English versions available? They are deceived or couldn’t be saved because they didn’t have a KING JAMES? Hey, man, give me a break!

    No Chico, they are not deceived IF THEY DID WHAT WAS RIGHT; if they believed in Jesus as their Savior, if they TRULY repented of their sins and if they ABIDE in Him (John 15.1-8). The ones who are deceived are those bearing no fruit, who’s faith and repentance are just a form of “mental assertion”, those playing church in hypocrisy, those living consciously in DISOBEDIENCE to God thinking that GRACE is going to save them and the ones who knew the LORD but waned and departed from the faith. And they are a bunch!

    Yes, those are the deceived ones who chose to redesign God’s message to fit their own will so they could SIT ON THE GRACE, stay comfortably in their sins and remain UNCHANGED regardless of the so many warnings given by Jesus and the apostles. Do you think Jesus and the apostles were joking? Or were they lying?

    Please know this: Every fair enough translation of the Bible contains enough information (and spiritual power) to accomplish perfectly the purpose intended by God IF a person has a love for the TRUTH. Whoever pontificates of having the purest version or translation of the Scriptures while twisting its message and teaching that disobeying God is no big deal since “Jesus did it all” IS DECEIVING HIMSELF big time! (and the others as well). It will profit him nothing to strain out gnats if he’s ok with swallowing camels. It will only make him more accountable in the day of judgment.

    Chico, please don’t believe what those rampant charlatans are spreading on the internet. Calling the NKJV a “fake Bible” won’t give you any credibility. As for me, the Bible I’m using the most is neither KJV nor NKJV but a Bible written in my own native language (which is actually closer to the Greek). As many others, I prefer the NKJV over the KJV for English because I’m not familiar with its old “XVII century” form.
