What Is the Genesis Gap Theory?

R. Guntrum asks:

“What is the Genesis gap theory?”

My answer…

It’s a false doctrine that teaches that God created everything then destroyed it in the gap between Genesis 1:1–2, and that He then recreated everything. Many people will say that Satan’s rebellion led to this destruction and all sorts of mad speculation proceeds from that point. It is fantasy religion.

What Is the Nature of Hell?

B. Cooper asks:

“In the Bible, is hell simply separation from God, or is it the literal presence of God’s eternal wrath on the unsaved sinner?”

My answer…

Hell is a place of separation from God and a place of literal conscious torment. It is a place of suffering, grief and flames and it is eternal. I would say all those things taken together could be considered the literal presence of God’s wrath.

Will I Burn I Hell if I’m not a Christian?

D. Edgren asks:

“Will I burn in hell for all eternity if I am not a Christian?”

My answer…

I’m going to be very straight forward with you – when I was an atheist a missionary had me read this text and it led to my conversion…

“The Father loves the Son and has given all things into His hand. 36 He who believes in the Son has eternal life; but he who does not obey the Son will not see life, but the wrath of God abides on him. – John 3:35–36

When I was lost this infuriated me but later on God revealed to me it was true. Without Christ you will die in your sin.

Why Are there So Many “Gods” & Religions?

T. Schafer asks the question,

“Why are there so many different gods and religions out there?”

My answer…

There is only one true God and one true religion that is revealed from heaven – and that religion teaches that Jesus Christ came into the world to die for guilty sinners.

On the other hand there are a multitude of false religions created by man. Man is fallen and has a natural propensity for casting a “god” in his own image and has found it highly expedient to do so… the only problem is what Jesus said…

“Let them alone; they are blind guides of the blind. And if a blind man guides a blind man, both will fall into a pit.” – Matthew 15:14

Winning the Battle: the Many-Headed Hydra of Jesuit Futurism

hydra

It has been over 8 months since I have even looked at this blog. In many respects it is a closed case. I have truly said all that needs to be said in order for someone that truly wants deliverance from error to be saved.

I have shared my testimony of how the Lord Jesus Christ delivered from one deception and sin after another and given every detail… but I feel there is more that needs to be said because we are getting into some of the most impenetrable areas of falsehood that the devils ever invented and it affects us all. 

My earnest desire is that my readers who are tangled up in this mire of false religion will break free. 

I want to say this, it has been almost twelve years since I first started to see the light of freedom in Jesus Christ from this cult and to this day I still battle the demon of FUTURISM. This is the ultimate poison that the Chapel instills and it is the spiritual essence of the beast, it is a many-headed Hydra that pulls its victims into the depths.

Futurism was created by Jesuits in the 16th century in order to obscure the reality that the dynasty of the papacy was the prophetic Antichrist. The Reformers knew this. Through futurism the world is either pulled into ecumenism or prophetic fantasy religion that strengthens the hand of Rome through blindness.

The center-piece of Chapel teaching is this fantastical notion that Satan will descend from the Heavens in the future as the Antichrist at the 6th trumpet with god-like powers of persuasion and deception. The structure of this lie was given theological strength by the intellectual shock troops of the beast… the Jesuits, a bloody and hellish corps of devils.

This doctrine of futurism was later “Protestantized” by the dispensationalists of whom the Chapel is a pure and unadulterated expression.

It is the height of fantasy religion and if you are caught up in it you are being ROBBED. The Antichrist as you understand him will never come – the man of sin has already been revealed.

What the Lord brought to my attention in my time away is that I too in much of my writing was still swayed by Rome’s poison that was delivered to me by the Chapel even after all this time and conscientious effort to break free.

I will be updating the blog to reflect these changes and my pitched war and repudiation of Jesuit futurism which the Chapel is a 100% devotee. They are an unwitting tool of the beast. I want you to see these things.

The war you are waiting for is already here.

You see the false doctrine of futurism puts adherents at peace with the biblical Antichrist by pointing their attention to a fictional comic book character that will never come… and while the Christians have their heads turned the Roman beast continues to devour the world.

Jesus Christ Delivered Me from the Shepherd’s Chapel

bigstock-silhouette-of-man-and-sunshine-18659549

 “But because of his great love for us, God, who is rich in mercy, made us alive with Christ even when we were dead in transgressions—it is by grace you have been saved.” – Ephesians 2:4-5

My first experience with Shepherd’s Chapel was in early 1994 – I was 16 at the time. I happened across a study on the local channels one morning, with Murray teaching in his common manner. At the end of each study he does a Question and Answer session.

A question came up about the dead sea scrolls. It was about the Gospel of Mary. In some of the fragments there was a reference to a secret relationship between Jesus and Mary Magdalene. Murray deftly explained the problem away.

You see, at that time in my life I was tormented over this issue with the dead sea scrolls and particularly this Gospel of Mary Magdalene – but Murray adequately assuaged my doubts and I began a frenzied period of bible study with the Chapel to learn more.

At the end of the broadcast they advertised the free “Mark of the Beast” tape and introductory letter with recommended study tools and other information. I took them up on the offer. At the time I felt like I had discovered gold and began to assimilate the Chapel doctrine rapidly.

Before long I was poisoned. My struggle to break free from the grip of this cult would drive me into atheism, occultism and mental insanity.  In December of 1994 in an effort to separate myself from all of this I renounce all belief in God and became an atheist. A period of rebellion and vacillation between atheism and belief in God would go on for the next 9 years.

During those periods of brief belief I would invariably gravitate back towards Shepherd’s Chapel only to rebel again. These stints of religious faith were characterized by fascination with Shepherd’s Chapel themes, insanity and hospitalization.

On this blog I have detailed many of my experiences along the way and the freedom from false religion that only Jesus can give…

On February 14th, 2003, the Lord Jesus Christ saved me from the atheistic path of perdition I was heading. Almost immediately I began to drift back into Shepherd’s Chapel teaching. I got the mark of the beast CD and started to collect and study the Chapel’s material all over again.

Initially I remember the Lord convicting me to stay away from him but I was unable to do so… I just couldn’t see the bible outside what I had learned from Murray.

Within a short period of time I had a job and was tithing regularly and buying reams of study material from the Chapel – such was my commitment to Murray’s teaching. I would passionately share the teachings with others…

This period of time was characterized by astounding mental delusion and instability but God kept me from completely breaking down into madness.

I couldn’t conceive of anyone else having the depth of insight into the true meaning of scripture and I wanted more than anything to be one of the 144,000… I mean who wouldn’t? I would come to find out later that Murray’s insight was merely a gnostic façade.

You see, genuine truth from God’s word is for all – not for a select group of elite believers like the pastor from Arkansas taught. Murray’s stock response to those that would question his wisdom was that they weren’t the elect, that they were blinded and that only a small group of select students could understand.

In Fall of 2003 I for the first time became aware of Lance Knight’s ministry. Lance was a student of the Chapel and had a rather large following. He produced his own teaching material and taught the Murray system with a flair and charisma that the old man simply didn’t have.

In Spring of 2005 Lance had an “awakening” and repudiated the Shepherd’s Chapel and began to teach a new doctrine that I can only describe as Latter-Rain like.

For a time I would continue to study with him but it would soon become apparent that he was more deceived than before he come out of the Chapel. His heresies began to multiply and that’s when I cut anchor and began to turn away from man’s teaching and put my trust in God.

I would begin to radically reject the Shepherd’s Chapel and Lance Knight. In April 2005 I remember taking all of my study material to the dump and throwing it away. I even had a pricey companion bible – it went as well.

It would take several years to fully break away from the elements of Murray’s system of deception but the dye had been cast. Because of his lies I would never see him in a favorable light again.

It’s hard to understand the harm that cultic religion causes when you’re in it… when you come out of it then you begin to see.

My foray with the Chapel began in early ’94. It would unleash madness and instability in my life that will take some time to recount for you here. By the grace of our Lord Jesus it no longer has any hold or influence on me. I pray the same takes place in your life whether it be with ministry or any other false teacher that may have a foothold in your life…

Exapataō! How Private Interpretation & Sex Sells

garden_of_eden__600x

There are two passages in the bible that dumbfounds false teachers near and far…

“Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation…“- 2nd Peter 1:20

“As also in all his epistles, speaking in them of these things; in which are some things hard to be understood, which they that are unlearned and unstable wrest, as they do also the other scriptures, unto their own destruction” – 2nd Peter 3:16

Has anyone put forth with success more private interpretations and religious speculation as truth than Shepherd’s Chapel? You see, one of things our teacher likes to do is reinterpret the whole of scripture through the lens of his IDOL DOCTRINE the SERPENT SEED and it’s attendant KENITE deception. He knows no bounds to bending and twisting the text to make it fit his precious lies.

Take for instance where he tells us that the Greek word expatao or beguiled in Corinthians means to wholly seduce, as in both sexually and spiritually.

“For I am jealous over you with godly jealousy: for I have espoused you to one husband, that I may present you as a chaste virgin to Christ. But I fear, lest by any means, as the serpent beguiled Eve through his subtlety, so your minds should be corrupted from the simplicity that is in Christ.” 2nd Corinthians 11:2-3

“You will remember also that, uh…  Paul, in second Corinthians chapter eleven verses two and three stated, “I wanna present you all as chaste virgins to Christ,” that is to say our husband, when he returns, “not as Eve who was beguiled by that serpent.”  The word beguiled in the Greek being, “Expattio”  which has only one meaning, and that is to be wholly seduced, uh.   Documentation?  Prove me out.  A Strong’s concordance, the Greek word 1818, beguiled as it is used in second Corinthians chapter 11.” – Arnold Murray, tape #438 Mark of the Beast

For Murray this text is about how Satan sexually seduced Eve in the Garden. At the same time he is suggesting that the antichrist will do to the church during the tribulation what Satan did to Eve in the garden. How that works I do not know. Somehow when Christ comes back he will find the church with a corporate devil baby.

I’m being facetious but you can see what happens when you logically follow these things out. In other words, Antichirst (or Satan according to Murray) is going to have sex with the church spiritually. OK, sure.

Expatao has absolutely nothing to do with being seduced sexually. The word simply means to be deceived and that is what happened to Eve – she allowed the serpent to deceive her through his subtlety into disobeying God. Sex never entered the picture – but like I said before, carnal man responds to this type of sensual perverse nonsense.

DON’T BUY INTO HIS CARNAL NONSENSE!

The main reasons I bring this up is to show you how false teachers distort and pervert the text making it mean something that is an utter abomination. Eve never had sexual relations with Satan and the word expatao has nothing to do with sexual seduction and means simply to deceive.
