We are a Bible centered
group of believers who desire to grow in the full knowledge of Jesus Christ
without compromise to His Word. We
believe, teach and practice all things that Jesus taught and
were practiced by the Church in the book of the Acts of the Apostles.
Jesus called his disciples to be salt and light. Salt is a
preservative but it is also something that adds savor and enjoyment to our
daily food. Light is a symbol of truth; it is comforting, penetrating,
guiding and exposes darkness. We seek to
preserve biblical truth and shed the glorious light of the Gospel in a world
that is consumed by darkness.

THIS WEEK'S WEBCAST
temple was built on Mount Moriah, the location where Abraham had
come to sacrifice Isaac 1,200 years earlier and where David had met
the Lord during a time of judgment on Israel. Moses built a
tabernacle in the wilderness after the Israelites left Egypt but
this "glorified tent" wasn't a fixed structure.
King David wanted to build the temple but that
responsibility fell to Solomon, who decided to build it in an
unusual way. Gathering the construction materials took four years,
and assembling the prefabricated pieces took another seven years,
during which time the sound of hammers, axes, and other tools of
iron were not heard. The dedication of the temple was an impressive
event as thousands of animals were sacrificed over seven days with
singers and musicians in abundance. The dedication feast lasted
another seven days. Solomon also built a palace, a summer house and
a special house for his pagan Egyptian wife.
The Lord warned Solomon that the Promised Land would
be lost and the beautiful temple would be destroyed if the
Israelites became idolatrous. No one in Israel, including Solomon,
paid any attention to the warning because they figured God was
sentimental and would never let that happen.
The country is currently aflame with
emotions from the recent school shooting at a Parkland High School in
Florida. Millions of children are skipping school to protest this recent
mass shooting. The media is fanning the flames and the call for gun
control is echoing from city to city. Lawmakers on state and federal
levels are perplexed because they have never had thousands of children
show up and demand they outlaw guns in America. Is this a genuine
spontaneous response to the shooting in Florida or is there an unseen
hand guiding the emotional outpouring?

After many years of deliverance ministry and observing
first-hand the desperation of people who have come for help, I have been
able to identify a common denominator that pervades age, gender, and
life experiences in those seeking to be set free from demons. Soul
damage is the one thing these people seeking help have in common and it
can occur moments after conception and any time throughout a person’s
life on earth. This might be a new concept but any type of trauma to a
person will damage their soul and opens the door to sickness in the
body. These traumas are a legal way for demons to enter the body since
evil spirits are always associated with fear. In this article I want to
share what the Holy Spirit has revealed to me over the years concerning
soul damage. The church is weak today because it has not understood
weighty spiritual matters and the purpose of this article is to share
how you can have the abundant life Jesus promised.
first five years as a Christian in Southern Baptist churches, I was never told
of the power Jesus gave to His disciples. The end result was that I was a victim
to sickness, depression, and worse of all, I viewed myself as a loser that was
just trying to hang on. When I was set free from demons and baptized in the Holy
Spirit, I suddenly went from a victim to being a victorious Christian. But over
the years I became like an old boat picking up barnacles and gradually began to
slow down because of the drag. You will take notice if you are loaded down with
100 lbs of barnacles all at once, but if they are put on one at a time, you may
not even be aware that they are even there until much later.
Ted Pike dropped a bombshell when he publicly
disclosed that his wife had committed suicide after a lengthy spiritual
battle. This hit home with Pastor John as he has dealt with similar
attacks from Satan over the years and knows that if you're going to
combat the devil, it is essential to know your adversary. Satan has been
defeated and sentenced to the Lake of Fire but he is still a dangerous
enemy with a sophisticated organization that is staffed by fallen
angels, devils, demons and evil spirits who have been organized
according to human nations on the earth. Every nation has a demonic
prince or archon that rules through a chain of command much like the
military. Continue >>
people in Ephesus had converted to Christ from the worship of Diana and
the apostle Paul was concerned with how the new Christians were going to
live in a decadent pagan society. The temple of Diana was one of the
seven wonders of the ancient world and it was in this setting that the
Paul spent three years organizing a church and carefully outlined the
basic doctrines of the Christian faith. He explained how God is eternal,
Jesus is the Son of God and how predestination fits into our lives. Paul
also explained how we are born into the kingdom of Satan and why we are
transferred by salvation into the kingdom of God.
Salvation is the cornerstone of Christianity and Paul
was emphatic in stating that it only comes by faith and cannot be
earned. He called for the believers to live a life worthy of their
calling and introduced many concepts that were foreign in idol worship.
Paul explained what took place at the resurrection of Jesus and how new
believers will be resurrected as well. He instructed them on how to set
up church leadership in what has been termed the five-fold ministry and
also shared God’s desire for us when it comes to interaction between
family members and co-workers. Continue >>
Have you ever wondered what motivates the
people who make up the World Government? What religion do they embrace? This is
important because religion is a foundational building block behind every
political movement. It is true of Communism, Nazism and Fascism. Do you know
that all three of these violent movements have the same religion? Furthermore,
it is the same religion that inspired these Satanic movements which is also the
religion of the people in the World Government. This series of booklets uncovers the
hidden secrets of Satan's shadowy World Government from its inception,
tracing its development and what it means for us today and into the
future. Continue >>
GOD'S PLAN OF SALVATION
As Christians, our most important duty is to share the
Gospel with the unsaved because hell is receiving new people every
moment! As C.T. Studd once said, "Some want to live within the sound of church or chapel bell;
I want to run a rescue shop within a yard of hell."
Later on in his life, he added, "God has
called me to go, and I will go. I will blaze the trail though my grave
may only become a stepping stone that younger men may follow."
At least 150,000 people in the world will die
everyday, almost all of them will end up in hell, and the sad part is
that they aren't even aware of it.
Just as someone shared the Gospel with you, it is up to you to share
the Gospel with someone else, their eternal soul is at stake! When we die,
we either go to heaven or hell, it's that simple.
Even as you are reading this, someone has died and
gone to hell. If you are reading this and don't know if you're saved
or not, please take the time to do so, it will be the most important
decision you will ever make!

These were the frantic words spoken by a friend named Glenda as I was ready to
enter a Southern Baptist Church on a Sunday morning in 1970 in San Rafael,
California. My heart almost stopped as I heard these words because Jim was the
worship leader in the church and a staff member at Golden Gate Baptist
Theological Seminary where I was a first year student. They were really good
friends to my wife and I and now he was going to kill himself? As a young
Christian, I knew very little about spiritual warfare and wondered how I could
save my friend. Continue >>
THE STRECKER MEMORANDUM
Robert B. Strecker practices internal medicine and gastroenterology, he
is a trained pathologist and holds a Ph.D. in pharmacology. Dr.
Strecker and his brother, Ted, were preparing a proposal for a HMO and
needed to know the long-term financial effects of insuring the
treatment of AIDS patients. The information they uncovered was so
startling and hard to believe that it would dramatically alter both
their lives and lead them on a five-year quest culminating with the
creation of The Strecker Memorandum video. This is a very strange
story, but one that must be taken seriously by the governments of
every nation in the world because the AIDS virus is lethal.
THE HEAVENLY MAN
times we speak lightly of our own "cross" or "persecution," but brother Yun has
experienced unbelievable persecution, including torture and imprisonment. At the
same time he has also experienced unbelievable grace and miracles. And in a
paradox that continues to confound, he describes how the true church actually
flourishes amidst persecution. Instead of focusing on the many miracles or
experiences of suffering, however, Yun prefers to emphasize the character and
beauty of Jesus. Continue >>
Pittman has a clear message for the church: Wake up! Learning from his
near-death experience of facing an angry God for how he had been living his
Christian life, which had been been excellent in human standards, Pittman warns
believers of the danger of falling into the same trap. God's special task for
him is in unveiling the tactics of Satan and his demonic forces. One secret to
victory in this life is learning how to deal with the enemy.

SHOWDOWN IN JERUSALEM
Beginning in the 1990’s and up through 2004, John S. Torell
wrote a number of articles published in The Dove
magazine that brought out a lot of information on Judaism, the birth of the
Zionist movement and its historical steps that had been suppressed by the media
and ignored by the Christian leadership in colleges and seminaries.

TEACHING SERIES ON THE PROPHET DANIEL
may have heard Pastor John mention this booklet in a his sermon
(RLJ-1176) as he addressed the historical facts and cultural settings, but
most of all, the message from God. Daniel was chosen by God to lead the
people of Israel at a time of crisis when the nation was in upheaval, a
large number of the people had been forced into captivity in a foreign
land and sin was rampant. Continue >>

BIBLICAL TRUTH CONCERNING
THE STATE OF ISRAEL
in January 2009 the Holy Spirit moved upon Pastor John to preach on the
political state of Israel from a biblical point of view in order to shed light
on the Zionists and their Christian supporters. From its creation in 1948, the
State of Israel has been hailed as a fulfillment of Ezekiel’s prophecies, but
why would God need men to lie, cheat, kill and destroy to accomplish this task?

The Bible is under attack from all sides. Satan knows it tells the truth about
him, the victory that Jesus had at the cross, and what will happen in the
future. As such, Satan has and still is making every attempt to destroy the Word
of God. What better way to do this, than to change the meaning of the Bible over
time with different bible versions; each version as it comes along claiming it is
the truth and the most accurate of all the versions up until that point.
The Fundamentals were compiled to combat the liberalism known
as "higher criticism" that was starting to blend into Christianity and
is still around today. R.A.
(Reuben Archer) Torrey was educated at the Universities in Europe and early
on in his studies was pronounced to be a "higher critic," but before
he had completed them, he was convinced of the falsity of his views
and swung gradually back to old conservative doctrines. Torrey
became a most bitter foe of liberalism the rest of his day, he was
hopelessly orthodox. The Fundamentals are the legacy of written
articles that he and others have left us.
