In describing these Children of the Night, these Children of
Rebellion, and how they would be prevalent in the Time of
the End, the Apostle Paul made the following interesting
comments in his second Epistle to Timothy. These verses are
found right before the one in which Paul tells us that evil
men and seducers shall wax, or grow, worse and worse:

"This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall
come. For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous,
boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents,
unthankful, unholy, Without natural affection,
trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce,
despisers of those that are good, Traitors, heady,
highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God;
Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof:
from such turn away." (2 Timothy 3:1-5)

Please take note of Paul's final comments and warning in the
above Scriptures. He states 'Having a form of godliness, but
denying the power thereof: from such turn away'. What does
he mean by 'a form of godliness'? The word 'godliness' finds
its origin in the Greek word 'eusebeia' which means holiness
godliness, reverence, respect or piety towards God. The word
'denying' is obtained from the Greek word 'arneomai' which
means to deny, refuse or reject. Finally, the word 'power'
is derived from the Greek word 'dunamis', which means power,
mighty work, strength or miracle. If we consider the various
meanings of these Greek words, we can arrive at a number of
different conclusions concerning what Paul might mean by his
statement; and they are things which no sincere Christian
can deny are indeed occurring in our modern world.

One possibility is that Paul is saying that in the Endtime,
there will be some people who will appear to be 'holy' in
the eyes of others; they'll appear to be very godly people.
These people will even claim to reverence and love God. They
might even put on their best Sunday clothes, and make a fair
show of it by fulfilling their 'one hour duty' to God each
week, by attending their local church or fellowship. To a
person who doesn't possess very much Spiritual Discernment,
such people might appear to be the model Christian family.
Maybe one is even the organ player, or an altar boy, or in
the church choir. God forbid, but perhaps one of them might
even be the priest, pastor or minister of your church! He
could also be that famous preacher you see weekly on your
television set, or hear daily on your radio.

In short, some of these evil deceivers, some of these 'holy'
people, could very well be the most outstanding members of
your particular community, who have won the respect of many
people. However, regardless of the title they may carry, or
the seminary degrees they may possess, it is obvious from
the previous verses that this is the furthest thing from the
truth. What they may claim to be, and what they really are
in their hearts, may be totally different. In their private
lives when they are no longer in the public spotlight, they
may show a different face altogether. Perhaps they totally
reject God's Power and Authority over their lives. Maybe
they don't submit themselves to Him in the least, but rather
yield themselves to the desires of their flesh; committing
things which would surely destroy their public image, were
such things to come to light. In short, they are hypocrites,
and wolves in sheeps' clothing; who play the deception game,
just like the ones that Jesus exposed in the following
verses:

"Saying, The scribes and the Pharisees sit in Moses' seat:
All therefore whatsoever they bid you observe, that observe
and do; but do not ye after their works: for they say, and
do not." Matthew 23:2,3, KJV

This idea of rejecting or denying God's Power has another
interesting interpretation. Notice that the word 'dunamis'
also means mighty work, strength or miracle. When these
false leaders and false brethren enter the flocks of God,
they usually have one very specific goal in mind; and that
is to slowly destroy the faith of the Believers. While I
have now pointed out quite a few of Satan's subtle devices
which they use in order to achieve this objective, there is
one tool which I have not yet covered; and that is secular
humanism. As I explain in the in-depth series 'John Lennon's
Imagine And Secular Humanism', this is an extremely worldly
attitude which promotes the wisdom and accomplishments of
man above God. As we saw earlier while discussing the true
attitude of the servant of the Lord, in the Gospel of John,
upon realizing that his ministry was about over, John the
Baptist quite humbly said:

"He must increase, but I must decrease." (John 3:30)

Secular humanism does the exact opposite. It de-emphasizes
the Might and Power of El Shaddai, the Almighty God, and
seeks to uplift man as his own god. Secular humanists are
usually in no hurry, and will slowly chisel away at one's
faith, by doing such things as offering new interpretations
of Biblical events. For example, they will logically suggest
that perhaps in the first chapter of Genesis, Moses doesn't
really mean that God created the heavens and the Earth in
six literal days; after all, that is physically impossible
they claim. For a more detailed, Scriptural explanation
concerning this topic, allow me to suggest that you read
'Adaptation, EVILution And The Six Days Of Genesis'.

These same 'Doubting Thomases' will also propose that Moses
didn't really divide the Red Sea as the Bible clearly tells
us in a number of different places. They would have us to
believe that the event never really happened, or else that
it was just an unusual natural occurrence due the phase of
the Moon, an extremely low tide, and a strong wind from the
east. Yes, maybe it happened, they say, but it had nothing
to do with the Powerful Hand of God. To deny Moses' account
of the dividing of the Red Sea, is not only to call him a
liar, but it is also to accuse Joshua, the harlot Rahab, the
Levites, King David, the martyr Stephen, and the Apostle
Paul of the very same thing, because they all gave testimony
to the Power of God during that miraculous event. We have
the sure word of at least ten people in the Bible who all
uphold this as historical fact, yet these humanists will
attempt to convince you otherwise.

In short, as the original Greek words used in the previous
verses make clear, these Latter Day antichrists totally
reject and deny the Mighty Works and Power of the Lord,
through their seemingly logical and scientific approach to
understanding the Bible. Because they do not possess the
true Spirit of the Living God, and the Wisdom and Spiritual
Discernment which is granted by the same, they fail to
understand how such miracles can be possible. As the Apostle
Paul wrote:

"But 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."
1 Corinthians 2:14, KJV

"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." 2 Corinthians 4:4, KJV

I am again reminded of the story of how one dear church
member's faith in the Word of God was so weakened after so
many years of listening to her spiritless, humanist pastor,
that all she had left was the covers of her Bible. This was
because each time that her pastor would tell her that a
verse no longer applied to our current day, or that it had
simply been misinterpreted, or that it wasn't found in the
Greek or Hebrew text, she would simply cut it out of her
Bible. This is precisely what Satan wishes to accomplish
through these deceptive, false shepherds. He wants to tear
down one's faith in God and in His Word, and build up the
wisdom, knowledge and accomplishments of men. If you would
like to gain a better understanding of where man's knowledge
and science have gotten us, please read such articles as
'Science And Technology: The Forbidden Fruit?'.

In a more simple interpretation of Paul's prophet words,
these people who possess a form of godliness might not even
be church members. They could be your average person on the
street who offers lip service to God by saying, 'Oh yes; of
course I believe in God!'; but that is as far as it goes.
Their whole lifestyle totally denies it, as they are living
like the Devil. They also deny the Power of God by readily
accepting such things as the false theory of EVILution, and
abortion, without giving it a second thought. They foolishly
accept the words of the secular humanists without question,
and without going to the Bible to see what the Lord really
has to say on a particular topic. I wrote all about such
people in the article 'Are You Just A Baby Huey?'.

These people belong to the crowd who follow the broad way to
destruction, and who enter through the wide gate. While it
has never occurred to me before, might it be possible that
the reason that this gate is so wide, is because those who
pass through it are broad-minded; that is, they are more
open-minded and willing to accept a lot of things which we
'narrow-minded' Christians would never accept? While we are
single-minded, and single-eyed, they are not. These shallow,
foolish people prefer to be politically-correct, rather than
to take a stand for the truth and to defend the Word of God.
As I explain in 'Are You Clean Every Whit?', they don't know
how to keep their eyes in front of them on the Right Path;
that is, on Jesus Christ. They allow themselves to become
detoured by Satan's snares in the world. Consider these
verses:

"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. 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 2:15,16, KJV

While what I have explained to you is probably the best
interpretation of Paul's words 'having a form of godliness
but denying the power therof', as I thought on these verses,
the Lord showed me something even more sinister concerning
the deceptions and lying wonders which exist in the world
today. As I mentioned earlier in this series, in addition to
worldly clergy and theologians who have compromised the Word
of God, there is another group of people who also appear to
be, or who claim to be godly, saintly, or divinely anointed;
and their power definitely does not come from God. They may
appear to some people to be true messengers of the New Age
Gospel, or bearers of the 'christ light' as they call it,
but they are in reality workers of darkness who are only
posing as Children of Light; just as we saw a moment ago. In
fact, believe it or not, within the New Age community, this
is precisely the term that they use to describe themselves;
that is, 'lightworkers'! What blasphemy against the true
Children of Light!

We have already seen how Jesus Himself warned us to beware
of the many false christs and false prophets who will arise
in the Last Days. It is important to realize that the word
'christs' does not necessarily mean that such people will
specifically claim to be Jesus Christ; although we have seen
this on a number of occasions already; such as in the case
of Sun Myung Moon of the Unification Church, or Moonies as
they are commonly known; in the so-called Maitreya Buddha,
and in Marshall Applewhite; the now-deceased leader of the
suicidal Heaven's Gate UFO cult.

The word 'christ' itself is derived from the Greek word
'khristos'; which means anointed, or the anointed one. In
other words, anyone who claims to possess some special power
or anointing, is a 'christ'. One thing is for certain. Jesus
tells us that these emissaries of Satan will try to deceive
the very Elect by their great signs and lying wonders. Allow
me to pose a simple question to you. Have you ever stopped
to consider what your personal weaknesses are, and how Satan
might try to use them against you in order to deceive you?
Really think about this for a moment. How could such a bold
deception be accomplished? In actuality, I have already
provided you with a clear answer earlier on in this series.
In my view, the easiest way to accomplish such a deception,
would be by doing something which many Christians normally
identify as coming from God; except that it would be a
complete counterfeit from the usurper and copycat himself.

In case you haven't already figured it out, I am referring
to the many so-called miracles and manifestations which we
have heard are occurring within certain churches in both
Canada and the United States of America, and possibly in
other locations as well. While this may surprise a few of
you, I don't doubt that Satan won't hesitate to afflict his
own children with some disease, so that he can send along
one of his false prophets to heal them. By performing such
seemly convincing lying wonders, more sheep are drawn into
his delusion; because, as I explained earlier, they are
quote happy with seeing the signs, and don't pay very much
attention to the message that is being preached along with
the signs. Their faith is in seeing the signs, and not in
the Word, because most of them have very little knowledge of
the real Word of God.

As if this weren't already enough, as I have also already
pointed out, there are quite a number of charlatans who pose
as faith healers and travelling miracle workers who easily
deceive, ignorant would-be believers. The point I wish to
stress here, is that, based upon the actual meaning of the
word, all of these false miracle workers are in fact false
christs; because they claim to have a special anointing from
God, when many of them really don't possess any such thing.

One might ask what motivates these deceivers to stoop so low
so as to be willing to do these things. It is obvious that
some of them do it because it is an easy source of financial
gain. In other words, there is an easy market to be found in
those people who are so naive in heart, and so ignorant of
the Scriptures, that they are more than willing to dig into
their pockets and pay for these deceptive sideshows; even
though it is totally contrary to the advice found in the
Scriptures, such as the following:

"Perverse disputings of men of corrupt minds, and destitute
of the truth, supposing that gain is godliness: from such
withdraw thyself. But godliness with contentment is great
gain. For we brought nothing into this world, and it is
certain we can carry nothing out. And having food and
raiment let us be therewith content. But they that will be
rich fall into temptation and a snare, and into many foolish
and hurtful lusts, which drown men in destruction and
perdition. For the love of money is the root of all evil:
which while some coveted after, they have erred from the
faith, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows."
1 Timothy 6:5-10, KJV

Notice that Paul specifically says 'supposing that gain is
godliness'. We know that he is referring to monetary gain by
the content of the rest of the verses. Isn't that amazing? I
had never concentrated on those words before. The Lord is so
faithful to show me new things when I need them. Isn't that
precisely the woeful attitude of some Christian shepherds
today, who preach the false doctrine of 'the abundant life'?
What liars and deceivers! I recall one story which came to
my attention a while ago, where one particular preacher was
so proud, and so convinced that God had made him rich, that
during a particular sermon to his congregation, he held up
his wife's hand in order to show everyone the big wedding
ring on her finger. He then told his congregation that this
is what God wanted to do for them as well. Just as Paul
states in these verses, this fool is convinced that gain is
godliness. He is convinced that God has blessed him with
such material wealth; even though it is totally contrary to
everything we find in the Scriptures; beginning with the
Lord's own words:

"Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth and
rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal: But
lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor
rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor
steal: For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also."
Matthew 6:19-21, KJV

"...Verily I say unto you, That a rich man shall hardly enter into
the kingdom of heaven. And again I say unto you, It is easier for
a camel to go through the eye of a needle, than for a rich man to
enter into the kingdom of God." Matthew 19:23,24, KJV

"...Children, how hard is it for them that trust in riches to
enter into the kingdom of God!" Mark 10:24b, KJV

"And they that use this world, as not abusing it: for the fashion
of this world passeth away." 1 Corinthians 7:31, KJV

"Go to now, ye rich men, weep and howl for your miseries that
shall come upon you. Your riches are corrupted, and your garments
are motheaten. Your gold and silver is cankered; and the rust of
them shall be a witness against you, and shall eat your flesh as
it were fire. Ye have heaped treasure together for the last days.
Behold, the hire of the labourers who have reaped down your
fields, which is of you kept back by fraud, crieth: and the cries
of them which have reaped are entered into the ears of the Lord of
sabaoth. Ye have lived in pleasure on the earth, and been wanton;
ye have nourished your hearts, as in a day of slaughter. Ye have
condemned and killed the just; and he doth not resist you. Be
patient therefore, brethren, unto the coming of the Lord. Behold,
the husbandman waiteth for the precious fruit of the earth, and
hath long patience for it, until he receive the early and latter
rain." James 5:1-7, KJV

Now, that is the kind of Biblical truth that one finds when
he really searches the Scriptures as he is commanded to do,
instead of relying upon the evil lies spewed forth by these
false, money-minded shepherds, who will stoop to anything to
rob their flocks, in order to fill their own bellies. May
God rightfully judge every single one of them! They anger me
so! They are supposed to be feeding the Lord's flocks with
the sincere milk of His Word, and not selfishly taking from
them. They are not to be lords over God's sheep, who put on
deceptive sideshows for filthy lucre's sake. Here are a few
more verses for your consideration:

"Not given to wine, no striker, not greedy of filthy lucre;
but patient, not a brawler, not covetous;...Likewise must
the deacons be grave, not doubletongued, not given to much
wine, not greedy of filthy lucre;" 1 Timothy 3:3, 8, KJV

"For a bishop must be blameless, as the steward of God; not
selfwilled, not soon angry, not given to wine, no striker,
not given to filthy lucre;...Whose mouths must be stopped,
who subvert whole houses, teaching things which they ought
not, for filthy lucre's sake." Titus 1:7, 11, KJV

"Feed the flock of God which is among you, taking the
oversight thereof, not by constraint, but willingly; not for
filthy lucre, but of a ready mind;" 1 Peter 5:2, KJV

Notice that in his Epistle to Titus, Paul specifically says
'teaching things which they ought not, for filthy lucre's
sake'. That is precisely what these liars and false leaders
of organized religion do. They teach false doctrine. They
teach 'the abundant life'. They teach political-correctness.
They teach secular humanism. They teach societal conformity.
They teach things that tickle the ears, which don't make
their congregations uncomfortable or upset; and as we saw
earlier, the people love to have it so. They delight in
paying these preachers big salaries so that they will lull
them to sleep, because they don't want to hear the truth.
They don't want to be told that they are sinners, and that
God is not happy with their selfish living. They are the
deceivers and the deceived. Allow me to remind you again of
a few verses I shared earlier in this series:

"The prophets prophesy falsely, and the priests bear rule by
their means; and my people love to have it so: and what will
ye do in the end thereof?" Jeremiah 5:31, KJV

"For the time will come when they will not endure sound
doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to
themselves teachers, having itching ears;"
2 Timothy 4:3, KJV

"But evil men and seducers shall wax worse and worse,
deceiving, and being deceived." 2 Timothy 3:13, KJV

So you see, exactly as the Apostle Paul wrote in his Epistle
to his beloved son in the faith, Timothy, the love of money
is indeed the root of all evil; and it is because these
false shepherds and false miracle workers have coveted after
it, that they have truly 'erred from the faith'. Rather than
say something which might offend their congregations, these
weak shepherds preach a watered-down Gospel, and they sell
hundreds of books, videos and cassette tapes which are not
overly offensive to anyone. In fact, they contain a lot of
false deceptive doctrine which is passed off as being truth.
They have compromised the truth of God's Word in order to
continue earning a decent income. They have erred from the
faith.

Now let's go back for a minute to Paul's words regarding
those who preach the false message of 'the abundant life',
who claim that 'gain is godliness'. Exactly how does Paul
counter this? First of all, concerning these deceivers, he
says 'from such withdraw thyself'. In other words, just as
we saw in part one, Paul is stating that these religious
deceivers are false brethren, who are preaching a false
Gospel; so we are to have absolutely nothing to do with
them. We are to avoid them. If we don't do this, then as
John also wrote, we are partakers of their sins.

Paul then goes on to say 'But godliness with contentment is
great gain. For we brought nothing into this world, and it
is certain we can carry nothing out. And having food and
raiment let us be therewith content'. In short, Paul is
stating quite clearly that instead of preaching that gain,
or material wealth, is godliness, meaing that it is a part
of God's blessings in one's life, these false teachers and
ear-ticklers should be preaching that true godliness is
being content with whatever we have, because we can't take
it with us anyway. He teaches the very same thing in his
Epistle to the Church at Philippi, where he writes:

"Not that I speak in respect of want: for I have learned, in
whatsoever state I am, therewith to be content."
Philippians 4:11, KJV

Now that is the true Gospel of Jesus Christ; and you won't
find the Roman Catholic Church preaching it; or the famous
radio and television preachers teaching it, or some of those
smooth-talking Protestant and Southern Baptist preachers, or
the Jehovah's Witnesses who especially take pride in their
work, or the rich Mormons with their gold-filled Temples, or
any of the other false modern religions. It is an unpopular
message, and people simply don't want to hear it. If those
preachers were to start preaching this kind of a message,
that says that their people should forsake their wealth, and
share it all in Christian love with the poor, as I said a
moment ago, those preachers would soon find themselves
without a job!

Let me tell you, I have been to some of those southern
churches with their all-white, rich congregations. Some of
their members are the leaders of the towns and cities in
which they live. They run the local government, and operate
many of the businesses. They are not about to give it all up
in order to live a more simple, godly life without their
material abundance and personal convenience. Just like the
church of Laodicea, they have become so spiritually blind,
due to the abundance of their riches, that they can't begin
to see how far they have drifted away from God. As we saw
earlier, they say with their lips that they believe, but
their hearts are far from Him. They preach another Jesus,
and another Gospel; and certainly not the one that I know,
because they certainly aren't preaching His true message, as
we have now seen.

Another reason why some of these deceivers perform their
lying wonders, such as fake healings, is to increase the
size of their congregation; which is also directly related
to increasing the amount of their tithes. In their delusion,
other false miracle workers insist that such subtle acts of
deception are necessary in order to increase their people's
faith in God. It supposedly helps people along in their walk
with the Lord. Isn't that ridiculous? Since when does the
Lord tell His children that they are to purposely lie to and
deceive people in order to help them to believe in Him? I
have absolutely no doubt that God does not require any kind
of human help if He wants to make His presence known to a
particular person, or to a group of people.

Some of these deceivers simply like the prestige and the
attention such lying wonders provide for them. This seems to
be particularly true with those involved in the 'slain in
the spirit' movement. These so-called 'men of God' obviously
experience a boost in their pride and ego when their members
start keeling over and falling backwards due to a touch of
their hand. It is a lie; it is a deception; and it is not of
God! May the Lord harshly judge every single one of them!
God doesn't need to put on circus sideshows for the true
Believers, because we believe by faith alone!

Some of these other false shepherds do it in order to entice
the innocent, and the naive of heart into joining their cult
so that they can fill their minds and hearts with all of
their lies and false doctrines. Of course, the added income
sure doesn't hurt either. As we saw in the section regarding
the occult, the primary motivation in some of these cases of
intentional delusion, is simply personal power and control.
Some people simply thrive on the fact that they possess a
certain degree of authority and control over the lives of
others. They are power-mongers.

One thing is for certain; as we have already seen, in God's
chosen time, all of the Children of Darkness who perform
these deceptive works, will eventually fall into the pit of
their own making. They will finally reap what they have
sown, and none of their powers or demons will be able to
save them then. Consider the following verses:

"He made a pit, and digged it, and is fallen into the ditch
which he made." (Psalms 7:15)

"The heathen are sunk down in the pit that they made: in the
net which they hid is their own foot taken." (Psalms 9:15)

"They have prepared a net for my steps; my soul is bowed
down: they have digged a pit before me, into the midst
whereof they are fallen themselves. Selah." (Psalms 57:6)

"That thou mayest give him rest from the days of adversity,
until the pit be digged for the wicked." (Psalms 94:13)

"Whoso diggeth a pit shall fall therein: and he that rolleth
a stone, it will return upon him." (Proverbs 26:27)

"Whoso causeth the righteous to go astray in an evil way, he
shall fall himself into his own pit: but the upright shall
have good things in possession." (Proverbs 28:10)

"He that diggeth a pit shall fall into it; and whoso
breaketh an hedge, a serpent shall bite him."
(Ecclesiastes 10:8)

"Yet thou shalt be brought down to hell, to the sides of the
pit." (Isaiah 14:15)

In the Old Testament, depending upon its usage, this word
'pit' is derived from four Hebrew words. The first is 'bowr'
which means dungeon; the second is 'shachath' which means
pit, destruction or grave; the third one is 'pachath' which
means pit, hole or snare, and the final one is 'sheol' which
means grave, underworld, or hell. While we must all face the
eventuality of death and the grave, the description of some
of these places doesn't sound very inviting! In the New
Testament, as I explain in the article 'Hell And The Lake Of
Fire', we find the Greek parallel to these words in 'hades',
'ghehenna', and 'tartaros'. But there are two other places
which those who participate in these works of darkness, may
wan to know about. One is called the Bottomless Pit, from
which Apolloyon, the Angel of Destruction arises, and into
which Satan is cast for a thousand years during the coming
Millennium:

"And they had a king over them, which is the angel of the
bottomless pit, whose name in the Hebrew tongue is Abaddon,
but in the Greek tongue hath his name Apollyon."
(Revelation 9:11)

"And I saw an angel come down from heaven, having the key of
the bottomless pit and a great chain in his hand. And he
laid hold on the dragon, that old serpent, which is the
Devil, and Satan, and bound him a thousand years, And cast
him into the bottomless pit, and shut him up, and set a seal
upon him, that he should deceive the nations no more, till
the thousand years should be fulfilled: and after that he
must be loosed a little season." (Revelation 20:1-3)

Last of all, there is a fiery place of destruction which is
commonly referred to as the Lake of Fire; into which all of
the most rebellious and incorrigible followers of the Beast
and the False Prophet, and other assorted wicked persons
will be cast, unless they repent soon! At that time, I
serious doubt that any of their humanistic views, or their
spirit helpers, 'Ascended Masters', alien 'Space Brothers'
or anyone else will be able to help them then. The Lake of
Fire is the end of the line; and it is there that they will
suffer the Second Death; precisely as I explained earlier in
this series:

"And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is
the second death. And whosoever was not found written in the
book of life was cast into the lake of fire."
(Revelation 20:14-15)

With these thoughts, we have now come full circle in our
expose on the lying wonders of the Endtime. We began with a
discussion on the so-called Medjugorje 'visionaries', and we
have ended with a final look at the deception within modern
Christianity. We have seen that this delusion is not limited
to one area of the world, or to one specific culture, or to
one specific religion, but rather that its dark shadow truly
pervades every part of our modern society. From Endtime
prophetic events, to international politics, to science and
medicine, to the modern education system, to economics, to
religion, to foreign relations, our entire society is sick
with this dark disease of deception and delusion. Truly, the
gross spiritual darkness prophesied by Isaiah over twenty-
seven hundred years ago, is coming upon us in every way,
shape and form; and only the Light of the Gospel of Jesus
Christ can truly set men free; for as Jesus said:

"And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you
free...If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be
free indeed." John 8:32, 36, KJV

"...I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh
unto the Father, but by me." John 14:6b, KJV

With this series, I have now given you the information that
you need in order to make a wise decision. Now you must ask
yourself; does your current faith or belief system point you
directly to Jesus Christ alone for your Salvation; or does
it point you to Mary, the Saints and the Catholic Church; or
perhaps to aliens, UFOs and the 'Space Brothers'; or to
Muhammad; or to Confucius; or to Buddha; or to Krishna; or
to Maitreya; or to Sai Baba; or to Reverend Moon; or to
Joseph Smith; or to some other modern-day false prophet or
guru?

Do you quote directly from the Word of God, or from the
works of these other people? If your choice isn't Jesus,
then you are in trouble and you need to change your course
as quickly as possible. If you don't, then as I have clearly
explained in this series, in God's appointed time, any works
which you have built upon your false foundation will be
burned, and you will be left with absolutely nothing. If you
have not already made the wise choice to accept Jesus
Christ, then I truly hope that you will do so today. Only He
can set you free, for as He also said:

"The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath anointed
me to preach the gospel to the poor; he hath sent me to heal
the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives,
and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them
that are bruised," Luke 4:18, KJV

May God bless and keep you as you follow the Light of His
Eternal Word. I pray that this series has been a blessing
and an inspiration in your life.
