Stay Away from Indoctrination and Dogma

"As a result, we are no longer to be children, tossed here and there by waves and carried about by every wind of doctrine, by the trickery of men, by craftiness in deceitful scheming;" (Ephesians 4:14 NASB).

Masters Be Good to Your Debt Slaves...Slaves Don't Be Fooled!


I sat in a Court room this week and watched over a dozen Defendants be marched off to mediation, after the Plaintiff, who was suing for credit card and other financial debts did Not Appear at Court. These cases should have been dismissed, because the Plaintiffs, New Horizon Financial Services and Midland Funding, did not show up to Court. 

I sat in amazement witnessing the abuse of justice, and these unsuspecting debt slaves go into mediation to settle claims that they were helpless to defend.

The worst part about the Special Civil Part Court of the State of New Jersey is that the Courtroom is illegally influenced by the law firm of Pressler and Pressler, LLP---that owns many of the collection agencies that were suing the debt slaves that were marched off to meditation without the Plaintiff, and/or attorneys for the Plaintiff appearing.

The law firm of Pressler and Pressler, LLP, was chosen as the beta site by the New Jersey Supreme Court to test and implement programs to computerize the communications and filings between litigants and the Courts. As a result, they now transmit all Complaints, Motions, and Executions electronically to the Court’s computers. Perhaps this is why the Judge was arguing a Motion hearing on behalf of the Plaintiff, who did Not Appear!

THERE IS A CONFLICT OF INTEREST between the attorneys and employees of Pressler and Pressler, LLP, and a lifetime ban pursuant to New Jersey Statutes Annotated (N.J.S.A.) 52:13D-17—that precludes them from engaging in debt collection practices in the Special Civil Part of the Small Claims Court of New Jersey. 

1.    Founded in 1930, Pressler and Pressler, LLP is managed by Sheldon H. Pressler, who was admitted to the Bar in 1955. He was appointed by the Supreme Court to the Rules Committee for the Special Civil Part and served over 25 years. The Special Civil Part has jurisdiction up to $15,000.00, where most retail collection matters are filed.

2. Sheldon H. Pressler was also a member of the New Jersey State Bar Committee for the Special Civil Part. He has lectured for the New Jersey Institute for Continuing Legal Education (ICLE) on "How to Collect a Judgment," "Collection Practice," and "The Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA)."

3. Sheldon H. Pressler is counsel for the New Jersey unit of the American Collection Association (ACA) and is President of the "New Jersey Creditors Bar Association" of the State of New Jersey.

Palisades, New Century Financial Services, Inc, Midland Funding and many other collection companies are all owned by Pressler & Pressler, LLP, 7 Entin Road, Parsippany, NJ.

Pressler and Pressler, LLP, has sat on the committee that makes all the rules for the Special Civil Part of the Law Division Court in New Jersey—A CONFLICT OF INTEREST—pursuant to N.J.S.A. 52:13D-17.  Post-employment restrictions.

The laws in this country did not provide a remedy for a debt collection company that knowingly and voluntarily purchased bad debt, and then sues a debtor in an attempt to collect that alleged debt. What the law said was that an entity cannot place itself in harm’s way and then sue for damages.

The Defense that Defendants, who were sued by collection agencies could invoke was the "Doctrines of Scienti et volenti non fit injuria," and "Damnum absque injuria" (harm without injury).

The Doctrine of Scienti Volenti non fit iniuria (or injuria) (Latin: "to a willing person, injury is not done") is a common law doctrine which states that if someone willingly places themselves in a position where harm might result, knowing that some degree of harm might result, they are not able to bring a claim against the other party in Court.

While volenti non fit injuria was more generally used as between Master and a Slave or servant, Courts did not confine it to such relationship. Adams' Adm'r v. Callis & Hughes, 253 Ky. 382, 69 S.W.2d 711, 712.

Pressler and Pressler, LLP, represents national credit card companies that create Debt Slaves!

CREDIT CARD DEBT WAS NOT ASSIGNABLE IN THE STATE OF NEW JERSEY UNTIL PRESSLER AND PRESSLER HELPED CHANGE AND BEND THE LAW TO ITS FAVOR! 

In an unpublished decision, a New Jersey appeals Court clarified the legal requirements that credit card debt purchasers must meet in order to pursue collection from consumer account holders.   Main Street Acquisition Corp. v. Nemeth (App. Div., April 1, 2014).

Specifically, the appellate  court declared:

A plaintiff suing on an assigned, charged-off credit card debt must prove both ownership of the defendant’s debt and the amount due to the card issuer when it closed defendant’s account. See Wells Fargo Bank, N.A. v. Ford, 418 N.J. Super. 592, 599-600 (App. Div. 2011); Triffin v. Somerset Valley Bank, 343 N.J. Super. 73, 79-82 (App. Div. 2001). Pressler and Pressler, LLP, has a monopoly in New York and New Jersey in both representing credit card companies and purchasing charged off credit card debt.

Citing the controlling New Jersey statute that Pressler and Pressler, LLP, helped to write governing assignment of debts and other legal obligations, the Appellate Division noted that credit card debt is assignable to collection agencies pursuant to N.J.S.A. 2A:25-1.

In the case of Main Street Acquisition Corp. v. Nemeth (App. Div., April 1, 2014), the appeals court rejected Nemeth’s other defense that Chase failed to establish that it had acquired his account from Washington Mutual Savings with whom he originally opened the account with.  The court took judicial notice that the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation assumed control over Washington Mutual and sold all of its assets to Chase.  Further, the court remarked that Nemeth made many purchases with this credit card after Chase acquired Washington Mutual’s assets, and had received numerous monthly billing statements from Chase.  Accordingly, the court found a direct contractual relationship existed between Nemeth and Chase.

CHASE BANK USED THE LAW AND ITS POLITICAL RELATIONSHIP WITH THE FDIC TO PURCHASE A DEFUNCT BANK AND ITS CHARGED OFF CREDIT CARD ACCOUNTS AND ASSETS FOR PROFIT.

Washington Mutual, Inc., was a savings bank holding company and the former owner of Washington Mutual Bank, which was the United States' largest savings and loan association until its collapse in 2008. JPMorgan Chase & Co. is an American multinational banking and financial services holding company---It is the largest bank in the United States, with total assets of US$2.515 trillion. The company was formed in 2000, when Chase Manhattan Corporation merged with J.P. Morgan & Co.

ARE YOU READY FOR THIS:

SENATOR LARRY PRESSLER IS A KNIGHT OF MALTA---AND WORKED FOR THE COUNCIL ON FOREIGN RELATIONS (CFR), AND OTHER GOVERNMENT AGENCIES THAT I HAVE EXPOSED FOR OVER 5 YEARS NOW----INCLUDING J.P. MORGAN CHASE---THE MERGER OF THE ROCKEFELLER AND ROTHSCHILD BANKING FAMILIES---AND THEIR CORRUPTION IN THE STATE OF ISRAEL! THE KNIGHTS OF MALTA ARE THE ROMAN CATHOLIC CHURCH'S DIPLOMATIC ARM IN THE UNITED NATIONS AND THE EUROPEAN UNION---THAT IS PERSECUTING THE STATE OF ISRAEL AND VIOLATING GALATIANS 4:21-31----The Allegory of Hagar and Sarah - Hebrew for Christians.

Senator Larry Lee Pressler (born March 29, 1942) is a U.S. politician who served for six years, and then formed his own law firm, The Pressler Group.

THE KNIGHTS OF MALTA WANT TO MAKE JERUSALEM AN INTERNATIONAL CITY UNDER AN INTERNATIONAL REGIME---SUCH AS THE VATICAN AT ROME---THAT IS SOVEREIGN AND HAS PERMANENT STATUS IN THE UNITED NATIONS AND EUROPEAN UNION---Daniel 9:27; Daniel 11:32-45; 1 Thessalonians 5:3-4; 2 Thessalonians 2

Led by David Rockefeller during the 1970s and 1980s, Chase Manhattan emerged as one of the largest and most prestigious banking concerns, with leadership positions in syndicated lending, treasury and securities services, credit cards, mortgages, and retail financial services.

On Thursday, September 25, 2008, the United States Office of Thrift Supervision (OTS) seized Washington Mutual Bank from Washington Mutual, Inc. and placed it into receivership with the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC). The OTS took the action due to the withdrawal of $16.7 billion in deposits during a 9-day bank run (amounting to 9% of the deposits it had held on June 30, 2008).[1] The FDIC sold the banking subsidiaries (minus unsecured debt and equity claims) to JPMorgan Chase for $1.9 billion.

What about consumers, who never had a credit card account with Chase Bank, USA, and who did not make purchases after Chase purchased Washington Mutual's assets? The law cannot show a direct relationship between the debtor and original creditor, Washington Mutual, that charged off the debt.

Pressler and Pressler, LLP, has opened dummy collection agency companies for the purpose of purchasing charged off credit card debt for little money, so they can intimidate, harass and sue debtors for the maximum allowed by the laws that they helped create while working for the State of New Jersey.

Pressler & Pressler has been running a white collar fraud ring since 1996.

It is unlawful for an attorney or attorneys working for Sheldon H. Pressler to file lawsuits on their own behalf using dummy collection agencies!

Sheldon H. Pressler and employees of Pressler & Pressler, LLP, have a Conflict of Interest and Lifetime ban from the Special Civil Part Small Claims Courts of New Jersey—pursuant to N.J.S.A. 52:13D-17. Post-employment restrictions.

Sheldon H. Pressler, who was admitted to the Bar in 1955. He was appointed by the Supreme Court to the Rules Committee for the Special Civil Part and served over 25 years.

Sheldon H. Pressler incorporated New Century Financial Services, a collection agency, in his own name for the purpose of filing lawsuits on his own behalf. Then, to try and be slick, Sheldon Pressler transfered ownership of New Century Financial Services into his brother’s name, Lee Pressler. However, Lee Pressler is a medical doctor and not at all involved in the day-to-day operations of New Century Financial Services, while multiple Pressler staff are employed at both New Century Financial Services and Pressler & Pressler.





Ephesians 6:8-9 (NLT)
8 Remember that the Lord will reward each one of us for the good we do, whether we are slaves or free.

9 Masters, treat your slaves in the same way. Don’t threaten them; remember, you both have the same Master in heaven, and He has no favorites.


THE ABUSES OF SHARECROPPING AND LEGALIZED DEBT SLAVERY CONTINUES

Sharecropping became one of the first forms of usury against former slaves, and extended unfair credit terms to unsuspecting consumers in America. These desperate people could not afford to live, and just like today, took the credit to try and survive! 

Sharecropping became a widespread abuse in the United States, and became a continued way for Capitalist pigs to oppress and impose unfair debt collection practices upon former slaves (impoverished whites and other ethnic groups) after the Emancipation Proclamation, and during and after the American Civil War.

The disadvantages of sharecropping, however, soon became apparent. A new system of credit, the crop lien, became closely associated with sharecropping. 

Under the system of the crop lien, a planter or merchant extended a line of credit to the sharecropper while taking the year’s crop as collateral. When the crop was harvested, the planter or merchants who held the lien took and sold the harvest of the sharecropper to settle the debt they perpetrated.

WHITE COLLAR CRIMINALS:
The Connection to 911, Identify Theft, Debt Purchasing and the Buying and Selling of Electronic Information of American Citizens

What is amazing is that the Superior Court of NJ-Gloucester County, tried to serve me a Complaint from Pressler and Pressler, LLP, between January and March 2013 to a Post Office Box located in Thorofare, NJ. Furthermore, the PO Box was a business box not in my name.

INFORMATION TECHNOLOGY THEFT, FRIVOLOUS LITIGATION AND STATUTES OF FRAUD  

So how did Pressler and Pressler, LLP, get the electronic information for the PO Box that they tried to serve me a Complaint for a personal matter of presumed individual credit card charged off debt? The Plaintiff, Pressler and Pressler, LLP, did Not effectuate Service of the Complaint and Due Process of Law at my last known address pursuant to Rule 1:5-2 and 1:5-3. I moved to Rutherford, NJ, in October of 2012, and changed my address from South Jersey, so the Complaint was returned to the Superior Court as "Unclaimed."

Now, the white collar criminal firm of Pressler and Pressler, LLP, wants to argue a frivolous case that they effectuated process of service, when they know that I have a MERITORIOUS DEFENSE...Here's is the LAW: "If Default is Entered in the Special Civil Part, and "process is returned to the court by the postal service subsequent to entry of default and displays any of the markings listed in Rule 6:2-3(d)(4), or other reason exists to believe that service was not effected, the clerk shall vacate the default or default judgment." R. 6:2-3(d)(5)."

DEBT PURCHASING AND THE BUYING AND SELLING OF ELECTRONIC INFORMATION OF AMERICAN CITIZENS

The worst part about my case and many others, is that I never had a Chase Bank, USA credit card that I am being sued for presumed charged off credit card debt. Read about the lawsuit by minnesota ATTORNEY GENERAL LORI SWANSON against Midland Funding, LLC for filings false lawsuits below.

Corporation Service Company, the registered agent of Midland Funding, LLC, commenced business in 1899. Otho Nowland, then President of Equitable Guarantee & Trust Company, suggested to a young lawyer named Christopher Ward that they establish an agency to organize business entities (corporations, etc.) and act as their registered agent. With an initial investment by Nowland and Ward, "The Delaware Incorporators' Trust Company" was created. A similar company was formed separately by Josiah Marvel, an attorney and then-leader of the American Bar Association, The Delaware Bar Association, and the Delaware State Chamber of Commerce[2]

In 1920, Ward and Marvel combined their two companies under the name Corporation Service Company (CSC).[3] Throughout the 1970s, CSC continued to serve only Delaware business entities. The company increased in size, while Delaware's reputation as "The Corporate State" also grew.
From 1980 to 1985, CSC continued to grow. It received a cash infusion from the sale of its subsidiary company, the "Delaware Charter Guarantee & Trust Company," which it had acquired in 1977. In 1990, CSC acquired Florida-based "Corporate Information Services" (CIS). This acquisition was the first of many designed to expand CSC's scope beyond the State of Delaware. Between 1990 and 1998, CSC expanded through the acquisitions of nine other service providers, including Prentice Hall Legal & Financial Services in 1995 and Entity Service Group, LLC in 1998.[4]

Bruce R. Winn began serving as CSC’s president in 1997 and its chief executive officer in 1998. Winn had an aggressive personality and made it known that he wanted CSC to surpass CT Corporation as the largest agent service company.

During the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center in New York City, the company had offices on the 87th floor of the South Tower. The Corporation Service Company was among the few companies located above the impact zones in either tower to weather the attacks unscathed, as all 60 employees present at the time of the attacks somehow managed to evacuate the tower before the second plane struck.[5]

In 2003, CSC acquired Lexis-Nexis Document Solutions[6] to supplement its Uniform Commercial Code (UCC), secured lending, and motor vehicle services. Corporation Service Company has access to the IRS, DMV, and major credit bureau computers.

In 2010, CSC announced the election of Rodman Ward III as its president and chief executive officer. Ward previously served as a board member for 15 years and is a fourth-generation descendant of Christopher Ward, one of the company’s founders.

How banks make money from credit card users that don’t pay off their bills

Most financial institutions that extend credit (like your credit card, auto loan, or mortgage) make the bulk of their money from “Net Interest Margin”. Credit card issuers first have to get cash that they can lend you, either by borrowing from other lenders, or by getting their customers to open checking and savings accounts, and each of these methods has a some cost. For example, Bank of America might have a very low cost because they can use cash from people’s checking accounts, for which they are only paying 0.05% interest, to extend a credit card line of credit earning them 14.99%. In this example, Bank of America makes a 14.94% net interest margin between what they are paying depositors, versus what they earn from debtors.

The other factor that must be considered is default risk. If 5% of the credit card holders do not pay back their debts, Bank of America’s net interest margin drops from 14.94% to 9.94% (roughly). This is the risk that banking lobbyists have been talking up when trying to justify high fees and interest rates to lawmakers.

Many banks tend to target higher-risk customers with low or no credit, because they know that the law will allow them to charge up to 30% interest without being liable for usury.


Exodus 22:25 (ESV)
25 “If you lend money to any of my people with you who is poor, you shall not be like a moneylender to him, and you shall not exact interest from him.


DON'T BECOME A DEBT SLAVE

Pressler and Pressler, LLP, represents national credit card companies throughout the States of New Jersey and New York.

Consumer debt can be defined as; ‘money, goods or services provided to an individual in lieu of payment.’ Common forms of consumer credit include credit cards, store cards, motor (auto) finance, personal loans (installment loans), consumer lines of credit, retail loans (retail installment loans) and mortgages.

During the early years of the current depression more than 400 banks have gone insolvent and another 800 banks are on the FDIC endangered species list. Therefore, approximately 15% of all the banks in the U.S. will no longer compete with the Wall Street banks that caused the financial crisis. Since 2008, the top-five biggest banks in the U.S. have dramatically increased their market share and power. They are: Bank of America, JPMorgan Chase, Citigroup, Wells Fargo, and Goldman Sachs. Amazing how the exact same banks that caused the 1929 and the 2008 market crashes came out unscathed and more powerful after each crisis.

In recent years, Debt Slaves (consumers) who fell behind on paying down their credit card debt to the Master of the Sharecropper, where protected by the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act. 

Moreover, Servants were protected from the Master of the Sharecropper collection agency purchasing charged off credit card debt and claiming to own a person's credit card debt by the NEW JERSEY STATUTES - TITLE 25 FRAUDS AND FRAUDULENT CONVEYANCES.

In the case of collection agencies like Pressler and Pressler, LLP, that purchases charged off credit card debt, there was no contract between the debt collection agency and the debtor, who opened a credit card account with the original creditor.

NEW JERSEY STATUTES - TITLE 25 
FRAUDS AND FRAUDULENT CONVEYANCES, says:

N.J.S.A. 25:1-5. Promises or agreements not binding unless in writing.     
"No action shall be brought upon any of the following agreements or promises, unless the agreement or promise, upon which such action shall be brought or some memorandum or note thereof, shall be in writing, and signed by the party to be charged therewith, or by some other person thereunto by him lawfully authorized:"

Pressler and Pressler, LLP, and its employees cannot work for the State of New Jersey for over 25 years, while operating collection agencies, and then twist the law for its own financial profit!!!

N.J.S.A. 52:13D-17 Lifetime Ban. At no time subsequent to the termination of his/her office or employment in any State agency may a former State officer or employee or special State officer or employee represent, appear for, negotiate on behalf of, or provide information or services not generally available to members of the public, or agree to perform any of those activities, for any party other than the State in connection with a specific cause, proceeding, application or matter with which the State officer or employee or special State officer or employee had been substantially and directly involved at any time during the course of his/her office or employment. N.J.S.A. 52:13D-17. This lifetime ban applies not only to the State officer or employee or special State officer or employee personally, but also to the partnership, firm or corporation under the following circumstances: (1) if the former State officer or employee or special State officer or employee is a shareholder, associate or professional employee of a firm organized as a professional service corporation or (2) if the former State officer or employee or special State officer or employee owns or controls more than 10% of the stock of a corporation or more than 10% of the profits or assets of a firm, association or partnership.

 I have finally stopped trying to figure out why the Lord has called me to evangelize, and fight for the poor, oppressed and mentally and spiritually confused!

I never knew that the training that I received from my mentor, and Zionist lawyer friend, Sam Rosenberg, or my year of paralegal training, would one day be used to help people fight against tyrants and the abuse of power.

1 Timothy 5:17-20 (KJV)
17 Let the elders that rule well be counted worthy of double honour, especially they who labour in the word and doctrine.

18 For the scripture saith, thou shalt not muzzle the ox that treadeth out the corn. And, The labourer is worthy of his reward.

19 Against an elder receive not an accusation, but before two or three witnesses.

20 Them that sin rebuke before all, that others also may fear.

PRESSLER AND PRESSLER, LLP, HAS A PLETHORA OF COMPLAINTS FILED AGAINST THEM BY LAWYERS AND DEFENDANTS!

Daniel Rubin of The Wolf Law Firm, LLC was quoted in a New Jersey Law Journal article discussing Politi v. Pressler & Pressler – the putative class action filed by The Wolf Law Firm RUBIN, DANIEL against New Jersey’s largest debt collection firm, Pressler & Pressler, for alleged violations of the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act.

Politi is the first case filed which is based upon the recent federal court decision in Bock v. Pressler & Pressler, where U.S. District Judge Kevin McNulty found that Pressler’s practice of having a single lawyer review and sign as many as a thousand complaints in a single day — averaging approximately four seconds per complaint - did not qualify as meaningful attorney review under the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act.

The Complaint in Politi alleges that the Pressler firm violated the FDCPA by sending debt collection letters on its letterhead without an attorney first exercising the necessary professional judgment to independently evaluate the collection demand and determining that a proceeding to enforce collection was warranted, as well as by allegedly pursuing debts for which the statute of limitations had expired, and referencing in debt collection letters an Internal Revenue Service reporting requirement for debt forgiveness, without mentioning the exceptions to that reporting requirement.

You may think that I'm crazy, but the Lord gives me confirmation after confirmation from the Holy Ghost---especially the fact that as of the beginning of this year, 2014:

THE ATTORNEY GENERALS OF OVER 30 STATES AND DC ARE FIGHTING BACK AGAINST THE UNFAIR CREDIT AND COLLECTION PRACTICES OF MIDLAND FUNDING AND CHASE BANK---AS WELL AS OTHER DEBT COLLECTORS TO PROTECT CONSUMERS. 

The Attorneys General of; Arizona, Arkansas, Colorado, Connecticut, Delaware, the District of Columbia, Hawaii, Idaho, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kentucky, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Mississippi, Missouri, Nevada, New Hampshire, New Mexico, New York, Ohio, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Utah, Vermont, Virginia, and Washington (the "Attorneys General") write in response to the Advanced Notice of Proposed Rulemaking concerning "Debt Collection (Regulation F)" issued by the Bureau of Consumer Financial Protection (the "CFPB").



READ: Pages 5 and 6 in the document above about Midland Funding, LLC and Chase Bank, USA, making fraudulent claims against credit card debtors and consumers.

WHY HAS THE ATTORNEY GENERAL
IN NEW JERSEY NOT JOINED THE FIGHT
TO PROTECT CONSUMERS?

I may continue to be a target of international bankers and their credit and collection agencies, corrupt governments, world false religious leaders  and politicians—and the judges, whose hands are tied by the multi-billion dollar cash cow system. But I do not fear taking a Stand for justice, the oppressed, poor and needy! 

I trust in the Only One High Priest and Judge, who said, "I am the way and the Truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me."

I am my brothers' and sisters' keeper, even though some judges in the State of New Jersey are going to want to assassinate me.... 

Through the Holy Spirit, I have proven beyond a shadow of a doubt that the New Jersey Small Claims Court was running a MONEY-MAKING SCAM to oppress and defraud the poor and consumers. All this is being done through the "INSIDER TRADER" LAW FIRM of PRESSLER AND PRESSLER, LLP. Pressler and Pressler, LLP, was appointed by the NJ Supreme Court to automate their Court documents and computerize filings without Midland Funding, LLC, Palisades Collection, LLC, and New Century Financial Services or their Attorneys having to show up to the Courthouse (or even make an Appearance at Trial).

Finally, the Presiding Judge of the Superior Court of NJ, Gloucester County, Special Civil Part, separated himself from Pressler and Pressler.


In the judge's letter to the corrupt law firm, Pressler and Pressler, LLP, the judge cites that the law firm and its collectIon agency did not provide proof of the assignment of the presumed credit card debt and records pursuant to Rule 1:4-8, and Rule 6:6-3.

NOTE: Citing Marine Bank, 25 Pa. D. & C.3d at 267-69. A “defendant is entitled to know the dates on which individual transactions were made, the amounts therefore and the items purchased to be able to answer intelligently and determine what items he can admit and what items he can contest (this case law is not included in the judge's letter).

Furthermore, the Presiding Judge of the Special Civil Part, outlined in his letter to Pressler and Pressler, LLP, that my arguments that I never was Served the Complaint and allowed Due Process of Law---as well as my argument that I never had a Chase credit card, are consistent with my Opposition filed on time against Pressler & Pressler's fraudulent Motion to have the judge Enter Default.

The Judge could just be covering his ass on the record---I will see when I go back to Court, the outcome of the trial. There have been cases where trail judges have said on the record disgruntled that they feel like they work for Pressler and Pressler, LLP, and still not ruled in favor of the defendant.

However, there is a Woman Warrior in the Attorney General's office in Minnesota that has started the ball rolling to file suit against Midland Funding, LLC for filings false lawsuits.

Please pray for meLittle David (David Johnson, XU) versus Goliath, and all those who have been persecuted by Pressler and Pressler, LLP, its collection agencies and its special interest affiliates in the NJ Special Civil Part Small Claims Court. For those who have experienced the power of the Almighty, our first inclination often will be to cry out to Him.

Nineteenth-century pastor Andrew Murray said: “Prayer opens the way for God Himself to do His work in us and through us.”

Psalm 7:11 (NLT)
11 God is an honest Judge.
    He is angry with the wicked every day.

GOD FULFILLED THIS PROPHECY 
IN THE BIRTH OF JESUS CHRIST

Isaiah 9:6-7 (NLT)

6 For a child is born to us,
    a son is given to us.
The government will rest on his shoulders.
    And he will be called:
Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God,
    Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.
7 His government and its peace
    will never end.
He will rule with fairness and justice from the throne of his ancestor David
    for all eternity.
The passionate commitment of the Lord of Heaven’s Armies
    will make this happen!

Isaiah 11:4 (NLT)
4 He will give justice to the poor
    and make fair decisions for the exploited.
The earth will shake at the force of His Word,
    and one breath from his mouth will destroy the wicked. 


Godspeed, love and Truth,

Brother David Johnson, XU

It's Hard to Date and Keep a Godly Relationship!!!


GOD GIVES US PERSONAL EXPERIENCES TO SHARE OUR TESTIMONY OF FAITH TO EDIFY HIS BODY THE CHURCH.

In June 2014, I wrote, "Gay and lesbian people want to argue that if they are in a committed, loving homosexual relationship that Christ taught about love and that they are imitating Jesus. However, Jesus taught about Agape love, not sex as the measure of universal love." Now! I've gotta walk the walk better myself...

The modern Greek word, AGAPE (/ˈæɡəpiː/ or /əˈɡɑːpeɪ/; Classical Greek: ἀγάπη, agápē; Modern Greek: αγάπη IPA: [aˈɣapi]), often translated "unconditional love," is one of the Koine Greek words translated into English as love, one which became particularly appropriated in Christian theology as the love of God or Christ for humankind. In the New Testament, it refers to the covenant love of God for humans (John 3:16-17), as well as the human reciprocal love for God (John 14:14-17); the term necessarily extends to the love of one's fellow man and our enemies (Matthew 5:44).

October 16, 2014, marked the six year anniversary of the day that I left my ex-wife, marriage of 13 years and four children. My ex-wife and I were divorced almost a year later on September 3, 2009. Today, my ex-wife and I have respective good relationships with our daughters, and we are both in our own respective romantic relationships.

Am I in love with my girlfriend or lust? 

Recently, I met a God-loving woman at my church, and we have so many things in common that I joke that she might be my twin separated at birth.

In secular society, we often like to rationalize and believe that adultery is just the act of cheating on one's spouse. However, Jesus was very clear on the precise meaning of adultery.

Matthew 5:27-28 (NLT)

Teaching about Adultery

27 “You have heard the commandment that says, ‘You must not commit adultery.’[a] 28 But I say, anyone who even looks at a woman with lust has already committed adultery with her 
in his heart.

Footnotes:
5:27 Exodus 20:14; Deuteronomy 5:18. 

I have had six dead end relationships post-divorce in 2009. The longest relationship lasted 17 months to a Godly woman I met on Christian Mingle. After a while, it was clear that my last girlfriend was more career orientated, and interested in marrying me to have a baby. I did not want more children and to father or adopt a child at then age 46.

The woman I am dating now, I am completely yoked with in my Christian faith and life interests...

Therefore, as I date again at age 47, I have had to consider why I am dating as a Christian man who does not engage in pre-marital sexual intercourse, and what constitutes Godly romance while dating. The one thing that I am confirmed about is that I am not dating for the sake of filling my weekly schedule with just female companionship! I believe that God put my girlfriend in my path at the right time (after He had done years of work on me mentally, emotionally, physically and Spiritually). I rededicated my life back to Christ in March 2009, and it has been an unbelievable journey thus far!!!

Nevertheless, because my present Christian girlfriend and I seem to be equally yoked, it is too early to tell if marriage is in God's plan for us.

Like "The Law of Moses (Romans 3:20-23)", sometimes, God puts people in your path to help you see more clearly how left to your own devices how sinful you are and always in need of His Grace!

Romans 3:20-23 (NLT)
20 For no one can ever be made right with God by doing what the law commands. The law simply shows us how sinful we are.

Christ Took Our Punishment

21 But now God has shown us a way to be made right with him without keeping the requirements of the law, as was promised in the writings of Moses[a] and the prophets long ago. 22 We are made right with God by placing our faith in Jesus Christ. And this is true for everyone who believes, no matter who we are.

23 For everyone has sinned; we all fall short of God’s glorious standard.

Galatians 5:17 (KJV)

Dating and romantic relationships while unmarried can be a test to your faith and powerful thing that can make you feel that you are not doing your best before The Lord...It's Hard to Date and Keep a Godly Relationship when you have passionate desires of the flesh!

The Apostle Paul wrote in 1 Corinthians 7:27-28 (NLT), "27 If you have a wife, do not seek to end the marriage. If you do not have a wife, do not seek to get married. 28 But if you do get married, it is not a sin. And if a young woman gets married, it is not a sin. However, those who get married at this time will have troubles, and I am trying to spare you those problems.

I BELIEVE THAT GOD INSTRUCTED PAUL TO WRITE ABOUT THE TROUBLES THAT CAN DESTROY A MARRIAGE---SUCH AS; SELF-CENTEREDNESS, DOMINATION, CONTROL AND MANIPULATION, VERBAL, MENTAL AND PHYSICAL ABUSE, CO-DEPENDENCY, LUST OF THE EYES, LUST OF THE FLESH AND FALSE PRIDE, TEMPTATION, DISHONESTY, AND UNFAITHFULNESS TO GOD AND YOUR SPOUSE!

YOUR MARRIAGE AND RELATIONSHIP ALSO SHOULD NOT HAVE UNREALISTIC EXPECTATIONS; DEMANDS, ULTIMATUMS, OBSESSION WITH SEX AND MATERIAL POSSESSIONS---THESES THINGS ARE THE LUST OF THE FLESH AND EYES, PRIDE AND E.G.O. (Edging God Out)!

Theologians believe that the Apostle Paul suffered with the carnal lusts of the flesh, and that he was either a widower or bachelor. Paul writes in 2 Corinthians 12:7-9 (NLT); "7 even though I have received such wonderful revelations from God. So to keep me from becoming proud, I was given a thorn in my flesh, a messenger from Satan to torment me and keep me from becoming proud." "8 Three different times I begged the Lord to take it away. 9 Each time he said, “My grace is all you need. My power works best in weakness.” So now I am glad to boast about my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ can work through me."

I too want the power of Christ to work through me!

DON'T LET THE DEVIL STEAL YOUR JOY AND LOVE FOR THE LORD AND HIS WORK OF THE HARVEST (Luke 10:2)!

I too believe that The Lord has allowed Satan to put me to the test. The devil is the accuser of Christians! Satan is before The Lord day and night trying to find things to accuse us of before God! Read the Biblical book of Job, 1 Peter 5:8-9 and Revelation 12:10 about how Satan goes to and from the earth, and presently can go before the Lord with God's angels until the end of the age.

1 Peter 5:8-9 (NIV)
8 Be alert and of sober mind. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour. 9 Resist him, standing firm in the faith, because you know that the family of believers throughout the world is undergoing the same kind of sufferings.


Revelation 12:7-11 (NLT)
7 Then there was war in heaven. Michael and his angels fought against the dragon and his angels. 8 And the dragon lost the battle, and he and his angels were forced out of heaven. 9 This great dragon—the ancient serpent called the devil, or Satan, the one deceiving the whole world—was thrown down to the earth with all his angels.

10 Then I heard a loud voice shouting across the heavens,

“It has come at last—
    salvation and power
and the Kingdom of our God,
    and the authority of his Christ.[a]
For the accuser of our brothers and sisters[b]
    has been thrown down to earth—
the one who accuses them
    before our God day and night.
11 And they have defeated him by the blood of the Lamb
    and by their testimony.
And they did not love their lives so much
    that they were afraid to die.

Satan has no power over Christians, except that which we give Him! The Apostle Paul wrote in 1 Corinthians 9:27, "But I discipline my body and keep it under control, lest after preaching to others I myself should be disqualified."

We have defeated him (Satan) by the blood of the Lamb of God---Jesus Christ's birth,  shedding of His blood, death on the cross and resurrection to new life---as well as by our testimony about how we are sinners saved by God's Grace (Romans 3:20-23; Ephesians 2:8-9; Revelation 12:11).

ONCE YOU KNOW THE TRUTH OF CHRIST, THE HOLY SPIRIT WILL NOT ALLOW YOU TO STAY IN DENIAL AND SIN OVER AND OVER!

Hebrews 10:26-29 (NLT)
26 Dear friends, if we deliberately continue sinning after we have received knowledge of the truth, there is no longer any sacrifice that will cover these sins. 27 There is only the terrible expectation of God’s judgment and the raging fire that will consume his enemies. 28 For anyone who refused to obey the law of Moses was put to death without mercy on the testimony of two or three witnesses. 29 Just think how much worse the punishment will be for those who have trampled on the Son of God, and have treated the blood of the covenant, which made us holy, as if it were common and unholy, and have insulted and disdained the Holy Spirit who brings God’s mercy to us. 

Galatians 5:19-23 (NLT)
19 When you follow the desires of your sinful nature, the results are very clear: sexual immorality, impurity, lustful pleasures, 20 idolatry, sorcery, hostility, quarreling, jealousy, outbursts of anger, selfish ambition, dissension, division, 21 envy, drunkenness, wild parties, and other sins like these. Let me tell you again, as I have before, that anyone living that sort of life will not inherit the Kingdom of God.

22 But the Holy Spirit produces this kind of fruit in our lives: love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, 23 gentleness, and self-control. There is no law against these things!

If you are dating as a Christian, and are not convicted by the Holy Spirit about your lustful conduct (towards your girlfriend or boyfriend), then consider the Apostle Paul's advice here:

1 Corinthians 7:8-9 (NLT)
8 So I say to those who aren’t married and to widows—it’s better to stay unmarried, just as I am. 9 But if they can’t control themselves, they should go ahead and marry. It’s better to marry than to burn with lust.



1 Corinthians 7:36 (NLT)
36 But if a man thinks that he’s treating his fiancée improperly and will inevitably give in to his passion, let him marry her as he wishes. It is not a sin.

DON'T RATIONALIZE LIVING IN LUST!

1 Corinthians 10:12-13 (NLT)
12 If you think you are standing strong, be careful not to fall. 13 The temptations in your life are no different from what others experience. And God is faithful. He will not allow the temptation to be more than you can stand. When you are tempted, he will show you a way out so that you can endure.

PERHAPS I AM TO BE A SPIRITUAL EUNUCH FOR THE SAKE OF THE KINGDOM (Matthew 19:12). AFTER ALL, I WAS ALREADY MARRIED FOR 13 YEARS. WE LIVED AN OPULENT AND HEDONISTIC LIFE AND DID NOT GLORIFY GOD IN OUR GIVING AND MARRIAGE. HOWEVER, THE LORD WAS GRACIOUS TO GIVE US THREE HEALTHY AWESOME DAUGHTERS---WHO ARE NOW TEENAGERS!

Matthew 22:30 (NLT)
30 For when the dead rise, they will neither marry nor be given in marriage. In this respect they will be like the angels in heaven.

1 Corinthians 7:29-30 (NLT)
29 But let me say this, dear brothers and sisters: The time that remains is very short. So from now on, those with wives should not focus only on their marriage. 30 Those who weep or who rejoice or who buy things should not be absorbed by their weeping or their joy or their possessions.


Evangelists are called to study the Holy Bible as approved workmen for God, and rightly divide the Word of Truth (Holy Bible) from myths, so that Christians are not shamed (2 Timothy 2:15). We Evangelists--as well as pastors---are also called to Preach the Word, rebuke in the name of The Lord, correct and reprove false teachings about God and His Word (2 Timothy 4:1-5).

All Christians are called to The Great Commission to Teach, Baptize and Teach all things that Christ taught to His disciples. We have God's Word, as outlined in the Old and New Testament, to begin learning ourself, so that we can teach our children in the home about Jesus Christ---as well as our friends.

Matthew 28:19-20 (KJV)
19 Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:

20 Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world. Amen.

If you feel that you have fallen short in your relationship with Christ, know that God is faithful! The greatest God-inspired author of 13 epistles of the Holy Bible was not perfect!

Remember the Apostle Paul writes in 2 Corinthians 12:7-9 (NLT); "7 even though I have received such wonderful revelations from God. So to keep me from becoming proud, I was given a thorn in my flesh, a messenger from Satan to torment me and keep me from becoming proud." "8 Three different times I begged the Lord to take it away. 9 Each time he said, “My grace is all you need. My power works best in weakness.” So now I am glad to boast about my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ can work through me." However, the Apostle Paul points out the duty of those who would come to the Lord’s Supper, known as Communion in most churches.

THE HEALING POWER OF THE LORD'S SUPPER AND PREPARATION

In general, regarding The Lord's Supper, the Holy Bible instructs us to:
Examine ourself (1 Corinthians 11:28), and approve ourself to take The Lord's Supper with a clear conscious before The Lord. We must consider the sacred intention of this holy ordinance, its nature, and use, and compare our heart to the fact that the sacrament means that we have been washed clean in the blood of Christ. Such self-examination is necessary to a right attendance at this holy ordinance of The Lord's Supper.

1 Corinthians 11:27-32 (NLT)
27 So anyone who eats this bread or drinks this cup of the Lord unworthily is guilty of sinning against[a] the body and blood of the Lord. 28 That is why you should examine yourself before eating the bread and drinking the cup. 29 For if you eat the bread or drink the cup without honoring the body of Christ,[b] you are eating and drinking God’s judgment upon yourself. 30 That is why many of you are weak and sick and some have even died.

31 But if we would examine ourselves, we would not be judged by God in this way. 32 Yet when we are judged by the Lord, we are being disciplined so that we will not be condemned along with the world.

If you have fallen short in your walk with Jesus Christ, remember; "The godly may trip seven times, but they will get up again. But one disaster is enough to overthrow the wicked" (Proverbs 24:16). To prepare yourself to get back up and take part in The Lord's Supper and fellowship, Repent and Confess your sins to God and a trusted Christian friend.

1 John 1:9 (NIV)
9 If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness.

James 5:16 (NLT)
16 Confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you may be healed. The earnest prayer of a righteous person has great power and produces wonderful results.

Hebrews 12:11 (NLT)
11 No discipline is enjoyable while it is happening—it’s painful! But afterward there will be a peaceful harvest of right living for those who are trained in this way.

First Corinthians 7; 1 Corinthians 9:27; 1 Corinthians 11:27-32 and Hebrews 10:26-29, gives Christians that are single and/or divorced and dating, several things to consider about their relationship to Christ and their romantic relationship.


1 Corinthians 7:32-35 (NLT)
32 I want you to be free from the concerns of this life. An unmarried man can spend his time doing the Lord’s work and thinking how to please him. 33 But a married man has to think about his earthly responsibilities and how to please his wife. 34 His interests are divided. In the same way, a woman who is no longer married or has never been married can be devoted to the Lord and holy in body and in spirit. But a married woman has to think about her earthly responsibilities and how to please her husband. 35 I am saying this for your benefit, not to place restrictions on you. I want you to do whatever will help you serve the Lord best, with as few distractions as possible.

I do not offer you this writing to condemn you or myself. But I write rather so that you and I do not fool or condemn ourselves by misunderstanding God's Truth and statutes on dating, lust, fornication and marriage.

1 John 1:9 (NIV)
9 If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness.

I am moving this Friday four (4) hours away from my girlfriend to a different state for several good reasons. One reason is that where I am living now has no opportunity for work and the operation of my food marketing and event business.

1 Corinthians 7:2 (NIV)
2 But since sexual immorality is occurring, each man should have sexual relations with his own wife, and each woman with her own husband.

Although I divorced my wife and she then filed countersuit for divorce, we can both remarry according to the Biblical standard, because we were both unfaithful in our marriage. Jesus taught about "the unfaithfulness clause" in Matthew 5:31-32. 


Matthew 5:31-32 (NLT)

Teaching about Divorce
31 “You have heard the law that says, ‘A man can divorce his wife by merely giving her a written notice of divorce.’[a] 32 But I say that a man who divorces his wife, unless she has been unfaithful, causes her to commit adultery. And anyone who marries a divorced woman also commits adultery.

Matthew 19:3-6 (NLT)
3 Some Pharisees came and tried to trap him with this question: “Should a man be allowed to divorce his wife for just any reason?”

4 “Haven’t you read the Scriptures?” Jesus replied. “They record that from the beginning ‘God made them male and female.’[a]” 5 And he said, “‘This explains why a man leaves his father and mother and is joined to his wife, and the two are united into one.’[b] 6 Since they are no longer two but one, let no one split apart what God has joined together.”

If you have not formally accepted Jesus Christ, please accept the Gift of Salvation by saying this short prayer:  "Dear Jesus, I repent of my sins and the original sin of mankind, please come into my heart and change me to trust in you and build my personal relationship with you by studying your word and applying it to my life to the best of my ability. Thank you for dying on the cross for the remission of sin. Thank you for conquering death with your resurrection. I accept you Jesus as my Lord and Savior, please lead me and guide me. Amen!"

If you have said that short prayer, I welcome you to the True Body of Christ (not a sect, Protestant or Catholic denomination or Eastern religion).

Please get into a Bible-based church, where the Word of God is taught unadulterated and reject the rituals, religious lies and Tradition(s) and hedonism of men and women.

Hebrews 10:24-25 (NLT)

24 Let us think of ways to motivate one another to acts of love and good works. 25 And let us not neglect our meeting together, as some people do, but encourage one another, especially now that the day of his return is drawing near.

Godspeed, love and Truth,

What is God's Story and Endgame Plan for Humanity?


We are all trying too hard and complicating the message of the Gospel!

The hush words of "don't talk about religion and politics, just love one another," have kept us blind about the condition of the world and what God intended from the beginning for His creation.

Genesis 1:24-26 (NLT) informs us that in the beginning of the world,  24 Then God said, “Let the earth produce every sort of animal, each producing offspring of the same kind—livestock, small animals that scurry along the ground, and wild animals.” And that is what happened. 25 God made all sorts of wild animals, livestock, and small animals, each able to produce offspring of the same kind. And God saw that it was good.

26 Then God said, “Let us make human beings[a] in our image, to be like us. They will reign over the fish in the sea, the birds in the sky, the livestock, all the wild animals on the earth,[b] and the small animals that scurry along the ground” (Genesis 1:24-26 New Living Translation).

God intended man and woman to be joined as one in perfect union, and to live in harmony with the perfect world He created.

Genesis 2:22-24 (NLT)
22 Then the Lord God made a woman from the rib, and he brought her to the man.

23 “At last!” the man exclaimed.

“This one is bone from my bone,
    and flesh from my flesh!
She will be called ‘woman,’
    because she was taken from ‘man.’”
24 This explains why a man leaves his father and mother and is joined to his wife, and the two are united into one.

Adam was not deceived about disobeying all powerful and infinite God, instead Adam chose to obey finite Eve over the Lord.

Genesis 3:11-16 (NLT)
11 “Who told you that you were naked?” the Lord God asked. “Have you eaten from the tree whose fruit I commanded you not to eat?”

12 The man replied, “It was the woman you gave me who gave me the fruit, and I ate it.”

13 Then the Lord God asked the woman, “What have you done?”

“The serpent deceived me,” she replied. “That’s why I ate it.”

14 Then the Lord God said to the serpent,

“Because you have done this, you are cursed
    more than all animals, domestic and wild.
You will crawl on your belly,
    groveling in the dust as long as you live.
15 And I will cause hostility between you and the woman,
    and between your offspring and her offspring.
He will strike[a] your head,
    and you will strike his heel.”
16 Then he said to the woman,

“I will sharpen the pain of your pregnancy,
    and in pain you will give birth.
And you will desire to control your husband,
    but he will rule over you.[b]”

3:15 Or bruise; also in 3:15b.
3:16 Or And though you will have desire for your husband, / he will rule over you.


Genesis 3:22 (NLT)

THE TREE OF LIFE TAKEN FROM MANKIND

22 Then the Lord God said, “Look, the human beings[a] have become like us, knowing both good and evil. What if they reach out, take fruit from the tree of life, and eat it? Then they will live forever!”

Footnotes:
3:22 Or the man; Hebrew reads ha-adam.

God took the Tree of Life from mankind, so that we would not live forever, because He knew that the world would become more wicked and depraved due to mankind's self will plagued by Satan. Lucifer, aka Satan, the devil, is the enemy of God and accuser of God's people (Job 1:6-11; Job 2:1-6; Revelation 12). 

Job 1:6-11 (NLT)

Job’s First Test

6 One day the members of the heavenly court[a] came to present themselves before the Lord, and the Accuser, Satan,[b] came with them. 7 “Where have you come from?” the Lord asked Satan.

Satan answered the Lord, “I have been patrolling the earth, watching everything that’s going on.”

8 Then the Lord asked Satan, “Have you noticed my servant Job? He is the finest man in all the earth. He is blameless—a man of complete integrity. He fears God and stays away from evil.”

9 Satan replied to the Lord, “Yes, but Job has good reason to fear God. 10 You have always put a wall of protection around him and his home and his property. You have made him prosper in everything he does. Look how rich he is! 11 But reach out and take away everything he has, and he will surely curse you to your face!”

Footnotes:
1:6a Hebrew the sons of God.
1:6b Hebrew and the satan; similarly throughout this chapter.

Job 2:1-6 (NLT)

Job’s Second Test

2 One day the members of the heavenly court[a] came again to present themselves before the Lord, and the Accuser, Satan,[b] came with them. 2 “Where have you come from?” the Lord asked Satan.

Satan answered the Lord, “I have been patrolling the earth, watching everything that’s going on.”

3 Then the Lord asked Satan, “Have you noticed my servant Job? He is the finest man in all the earth. He is blameless—a man of complete integrity. He fears God and stays away from evil. And he has maintained his integrity, even though you urged me to harm him without cause.”

4 Satan replied to the Lord, “Skin for skin! A man will give up everything he has to save his life. 5 But reach out and take away his health, and he will surely curse you to your face!”

6 “All right, do with him as you please,” the Lord said to Satan. “But spare his life.”

The Spiritual War between good and evil and God and Satan is a cosmic battle. The Bible tells us that Job was a righteous man, who did not have the power like the rest of us to not be affected by Satan. The story of Job shows us how we can become discouraged in this world and think that God abandons us, and yet still have faith that God's way is right! The story of Job pre-shadows Jesus' suffering as a righteous man, who remained faithful to God, the Father!

God knew that He needed to send mankind a Savior to defeat Satan, because mankind does not have the power without the Lord to overcome the schemes and snares of the devil.

The Gospel we preach is that Christ died to pay the penalty for mankind's disobedience---and conquered death with His resurrection to restore mankind back to the Lord!

John 3:16-18 (NLT)
16 “For this is how God loved the world: He gave[a] his one and only Son, so that everyone who believes in him will not perish but have eternal life. 17 God sent his Son into the world not to judge the world, but to save the world through him.

18 “There is no judgment against anyone who believes in him. But anyone who does not believe in him has already been judged for not believing in God’s one and only Son.

Footnotes:
3:16 Or For God loved the world so much that he gave.


Romans 6:23 (NLT)
23 For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life through Christ Jesus our Lord.

God's Plan for all of humanity is that we believe in Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior? Jesus Christ has completed the work of Salvation, and all we have to do is believe in Jesus as the Only way to heaven to have eternal life after death!

Hebrews 9:27-28 (NLT)
27 And just as each person is destined to die once and after that comes judgment, 28 so also Christ was offered once for all time as a sacrifice to take away the sins of many people. He will come again, not to deal with our sins, but to bring salvation to all who are eagerly waiting for him.

In this life, we do not have to mourn those who have died knowing Jesus Christ or fear death and worry about going to heaven.

1 Thessalonians 4:13-18(NLT)

The Hope of the Resurrection

13 And now, dear brothers and sisters, we want you to know what will happen to the believers who have died[a] so you will not grieve like people who have no hope. 14 For since we believe that Jesus died and was raised to life again, we also believe that when Jesus returns, God will bring back with him the believers who have died.

15 We tell you this directly from the Lord: We who are still living when the Lord returns will not meet him ahead of those who have died.[b] 16 For the Lord himself will come down from heaven with a commanding shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trumpet call of God. First, the believers who have died[c] will rise from their graves. 17 Then, together with them, we who are still alive and remain on the earth will be caught up in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. Then we will be with the Lord forever. 18 So encourage each other with these words.

Do not believe religious myths about keeping rituals, the law, doctrines and Tradition(s) of men, and doing works to get into heaven. God gave the Jews "The Law" to show them how they could not keep His commands and needed a Savior! Belief in Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior is the only way to go to heaven.

Romans 3:19-20(NLT)
19 Obviously, the law applies to those to whom it was given, for its purpose is to keep people from having excuses, and to show that the entire world is guilty before God. 20 For no one can ever be made right with God by doing what the law commands. The law simply shows us how sinful we are.


Galatians 1:6-9 (NLT)

There Is Only One Good News

6 I am shocked that you are turning away so soon from God, who called you to himself through the loving mercy of Christ.[a] You are following a different way that pretends to be the Good News 7 but is not the Good News at all. You are being fooled by those who deliberately twist the truth concerning Christ.

8 Let God’s curse fall on anyone, including us or even an angel from heaven, who preaches a different kind of Good News than the one we preached to you. 9 I say again what we have said before: If anyone preaches any other Good News than the one you welcomed, let that person be cursed.

Footnotes:

1:6 Some manuscripts read through loving mercy.


John 14:1-6 (NLT)

Jesus, the Way to the Father

14 “Don’t let your hearts be troubled. Trust in God, and trust also in me. 2 There is more than enough room in my Father’s home.[a] If this were not so, would I have told you that I am going to prepare a place for you?[b] 3 When everything is ready, I will come and get you, so that you will always be with me where I am. 4 And you know the way to where I am going.”

5 “No, we don’t know, Lord,” Thomas said. “We have no idea where you are going, so how can we know the way?”

6 Jesus told him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one can come to the Father except through me.

Footnotes:
14:2a Or There are many rooms in my Father’s house.

14:2b Or If this were not so, I would have told you that I am going to prepare a place for you. Some manuscripts read If this were not so, I would have told you. I am going to prepare a place for you.

When we look at the troubles of this world that is controlled by Satan, we can either get discouraged, or realize that God is in control and has a plan. "We know that we are children of God and that the world around us is under the control of the evil one" (1 John 5:19 NLT). 

"Jesus gave his life for our sins, just as God our Father planned, in order to rescue us from this evil world in which we live" (Galatians 1:4 NLT).

The Lord will destroy the world's false religious and political system and establish Himself as King of kings and Lord of lords (Revelation 19 and 20).

The Endgame of God's Plan is to destroy evil and make all things brand new! 

God will make all things new, and once again He will dwell amongst mankind as our God!

Revelation 21:3-5 (NLT)
3 I heard a loud shout from the throne, saying, “Look, God’s home is now among his people! He will live with them, and they will be his people. God himself will be with them.[a] 4 He will wipe every tear from their eyes, and there will be no more death or sorrow or crying or pain. All these things are gone forever.”

5 And the one sitting on the throne said, “Look, I am making everything new!” And then he said to me, “Write this down, for what I tell you is trustworthy and true.”

Footnotes:
21:3 Some manuscripts read God himself will be with them, their God.


Revelation 22:1-2 (NLT)

THE TREE OF LIFE RESTORED TO MANKIND

22 Then the angel showed me a river with the water of life, clear as crystal, flowing from the throne of God and of the Lamb. 2 It flowed down the center of the main street. On each side of the river grew a tree of life, bearing twelve crops of fruit,[a] with a fresh crop each month. The leaves were used for medicine to heal the nations.

Footnotes:

22:2 Or twelve kinds of fruit.


Like Job, we must remain faithful to God, and lead by example, so that others may want to personally know the Truth of God, Jesus Christ, and His teachings about Salvation and righteousness (right living) as outlined in the Holy Bible. "Jesus said to the people who believed in Him, “You are truly my disciples if you remain faithful to my teachings. And you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free” (John 8:31-32 NLT).

If you have not formally accepted Jesus Christ, please accept the Gift of Salvation by saying this short prayer:  "Dear Jesus, I repent of my sins and the original sin of mankind, please come into my heart and change me to trust in you and build my personal relationship with you by studying your word and applying it to my life to the best of my ability. Thank you for dying on the cross for the remission of sin. Thank you for conquering death with your resurrection. I accept you Jesus as my Lord and Savior, please lead me and guide me. Amen!"

If you have said that short prayer, I welcome you to the True Body of Christ (not a sect, Protestant or Catholic denomination or Eastern religion).

Please get into a Bible-based church, where the Word of God is taught unadulterated and reject the rituals, religious lies and Tradition(s) and hedonism of men and women.

Godspeed, love and Truth,

Brother David Johnson, XU

NOTE: If this Biblical teaching was beneficial to you, please make a donation to this mission to rightly divide the Word of Truth (2 Timothy 2:15). My full time job now is to Preach the Word, rebuke in the name of the Lord false doctrines and dogma, and reprove and exhort with all long suffering (2 Timothy 4:1-5). 

1 Timothy 5:17-18 (NLT)

17 Elders who do their work well should be respected and paid well,[a] especially those who work hard at both preaching and teaching. 18 For the Scripture says, “You must not muzzle an ox to keep it from eating as it treads out the grain.” And in another place, “Those who work deserve their pay!”[b]
