Precious Jesus

"Afresh, precious, precious Jesus, I resign this body to You, for doing or suffering, for living or dying. Will You accept it? Will You use me for Your glory more than heretofore, that You may have some little return for all the benefits You have done to me? Oh, do grant this request; my heart longs for it, my spirit pleads for it; and "if You will, You can." You know the hot temptation of which I am the subject. Bring Your glory out of it, and keep me from the evil, and it shall be well." - Ruth Bryan

BILLY GRAHAM’S Satanic ties

I post this as an informational post only; you can form your own views/opinions after reading it.......

excerpted from

     Before we get into the details, we’ll take an overview. Satanists thrive on power. Satan loves to give his followers power. Satan took Christ to the mountaintop and told Christ that he’d have a "crusade" and bring every one to follow Christ, if Christ would just bow down and worship him. Christ refused. Billy Graham accepted it.
 We know a great deal how the Satanists took Billy Graham, the brush salesman and made him into the famous evangelist that he has become. Additionally, we also know from victims of Satanism, that have come out of it, that Billy Graham has been a Satanist himself. How can this be? and how can we know this? One of the best witnesses is a Monarch program survivor, who has escaped from being a high-level Pentagon slave.
This survivor witnessed Billy Graham working for the Illuminati. This survivor also carried messages for the Satanic hierarchy and personally knows that Billy Graham has been carrying messages from the top secret Illuminati to Presidents and heads of state. This person’s information has been backed up by independent witnesses.

If my pocket was full of stones

"Teacher, this woman was caught in the act of adultery. In the Law Moses commanded us to stone such women. Now what do You say?" John 8:4-5 

If my pocket was full of stones, I have no right to throw one at the greatest sinner upon earth. I have either done as bad, or worse than he--or I certainly would have done so, if the Lord had left me to myself--for I am made of just the same materials. If there is any difference between myself and the greatest wretch--it is wholly of sovereign grace!

"But by the grace of God I am what I am!" 1 Corinthians 15:10

Life support 'Christians'

"The LORD killeth, and maketh alive: he bringeth down to the grave, and bringeth up." I Samuel 2:6 "Verily, verily, I say unto you, Except a corn of wheat fall into the ground and die, it abideth alone: but if it die, it bringeth forth much fruit. He that loveth his life shall lose it; and he that hateth his life in this world shall keep it unto life eternal." John 12:24-25 "For if ye live after the flesh, ye shall die: but if ye through the Spirit do mortify the deeds of the body, ye shall live." Romans 8:13 "[Thou] fool, that which thou sowest is not quickened, except it die:" I Corinthians 15:36 In the above verses we find a significant spiritual truth involving salvation that is often overlooked or by-passed in the churches today. It involves the law of planting and sowing, and the law of death and resurrection. There are some natural events that prompted the giving of these verses that may not be directly related to the issue that I want to deal with in this newsletter, but they do not detract from the truths I will set forth. For example, in the above verses from John 12, Jesus is dealing with His own physical death which is at hand. But the second verse shows that He is taking the opportunity to give a spiritual lesson to the disciples as a result of this. It deals with a man dying to himself in order to gain the life God has for him. In Romans, Paul uses the word 'mortify,' which means 'to put to death,' and he says it produces life. In I Corinthians, Paul is dealing with planting, or burying the physical body after a person dies, but it has a definite relationship to the natural man dying to self, being buried together with Christ, and resurrecting to a new life in Him. There seems to be in the churches today an unwillingness to let a person die spiritually in order to get eternal life. They are preached to the brink of death but then a false sense of concern towards them causes others to interfere and prevent them from dying. They are kept in a state which can only be described as neither dead nor alive. It is a kind of spiritual 'limbo.' To make my point and allow the reader to see the truth of this, I will do like Jesus did, and give you a natural example that demonstrates the spiritual truth. It is not as when Jesus put forth a parable, but as when He said, "A certain man...," and proceeded to make application from it. In this day and time we have reached a place in medicine where doctors have at their disposal many different man‑made mechanisms which aid a patient in breathing, circulating blood, maintaining a constant heart rate, and many other functions normally controlled by natural operation of the body. When a patient comes to these doctors and reaches a point where the body is no longer able to perform its required task, the doctors hook them up to one or more of the machines. This is done, I am sure, for the most part, out of a presumed sense of compassion for the patient. The doctors do not want the patient to die. It is also thought by the doctors that this is the patient's only hope. There is a confidence in the equipment. It has supposedly been proven by others to work and so it is accepted. It is what they are taught in medical school. The problem with this is, the patient is often no better than before, and is oftentimes actually worse. They are dependant upon those artificial means to keep them going. In the case of the most severe patients, they are often nothing more than vegetables, with no cognizant abilities. There is respiration, heart beat, normal body temperature, but little more, and even these are maintained for them. They cannot feed themselves, but must be force-fed through tubes. They cannot clean themselves, but must be constantly changed and washed by others. They are totally reliant on outside means to keep them going, and with no understanding that all this is being done. Not only this, but it is a tremendous mental strain on their loved ones who cannot understand why all this is taking place. Added to all of this is the extreme cost of the entire process. The situation has reached such proportions that questions are being raised about whether it is right or wrong to do this. Doctors can keep nearly any patient's body functioning, but does it really do the patient any good? Doctors today have lost touch with what life really is. It is not mere bodily function. Real life is freedom; it is experiencing; it is growing; it is producing; it is contributing. Let me be quick to say that I am not advocating terminating all those on life-support, nor am I making light of their condition. I am simply using a condition that exists, which I did not create nor can I control it. That is for those who operate in the medical field to deal with. I use it for analogy only. God offers life to all who will repent and believe in the Lord Jesus Christ. The physical realm is different than the spiritual. I am using this condition to show the spiritual because folk can grasp the physical easier. I said this in an earlier paragraph. Please don't think I have no care for those who are hooked to machines. There is a spiritual parallel to this illustration which deals with salvation and the modern practices of dealing with lost folks. When a person comes under conviction and turns to a preacher or other individual who is supposed to be able to help them, they are often placed on a spiritual life-support system. They are given a plan, a program, a prayer, or a promise to claim that is meant to give them life. The lost person is seen as being in distress, and concern for them causes the individual trying to help them to do something for them. Many times the lost person is hooked up to one of these artificial means right away, because our institutions are teaching their students that this is the only way to do things. It is done without thinking; it is a natural reflex. Just as doctors have become more and more reliant on machines, so have Christian workers. Just as in a patient on life-support machines, the seeker who is given an artificial aid rather than true salvation, will always be dependant on that aid for assurance that they are alive. In a patient who is hooked to a respirator, for example, one will look to the monitor to make sure that the air exchange is proper. You may see the chest rise and fall, but how do you know the flow is right? The body is no longer regulating the rate and flow, so the machine is the authority. In a so-called Christian who has been placed on a life-support mechanism, they may see activity and involvement, but since it is not a natural response, they must always look to the means whereby they got life for assurance. In earlier times, Christian workers understood that the spiritual realm operates differently than the natural, though as we have said, we can learn spiritual truths from the natural if we have discernment. A lost person's only hope for eternal life is to actually die. Then God can resurrect that individual. Doctors know that if a person is really dead, they cannot be brought back to life. There may be a cessation of bodily function, but the brain must be alive for the doctors to be able to do anything. Even CPR courses will teach one that if an individual's brain has ceased to function, they cannot be revived. But God works on brain-dead folk! Salvation is beyond reasoning in the natural sense. A person must quit trying to hold on to their human logic, cease from all self-effort, and become totally reliant on a miracle of God to revive them. Preachers and workers today have no confidence that God can do this, or else they don't believe that this is how a person gets saved. They say they do, but they operate so much in the physical and fleshly realms that it is obvious they don't really believe it. If they really believed it, they would not allow folks access to the fleshly machinery. Another problem with the person who has been put on some means of spiritual life-support is that they will have to be constantly cared for by others. They have no spiritual discernment, or awareness in these matters. They will be a drain on the pastor and the church members for as long as they are around. There can be no growth, rather there will actually be a deterioration of that which was there at the beginning. This is why so many who make a profession, but are not saved, have an apparent zeal at the beginning, yet fall away as time goes on. Just as in the case of a sick person who is put on life-support, the machine makes them feel better at first, but after awhile the gain is surpassed by the deterioration of the patient's body and the advancement of the ailment. You have likely seen a person who has been bed-ridden for a long time; they are wasted away. Even so, in the false convert, there is a rush at first, but their strength to operate in the flesh wanes as their lost condition advances. They will either quit the church entirely, or settle in to a feeble, sickly existence, anxiously looking to the life-support system for assurance that they are actually alive. Or, just like a patient on life-support, they will require more and more aids be hooked up. The false convert will often try to plug into the aid of work and activity to sustain life, and to turn it up higher and higher, but it is of little or no help. Then, too, whenever someone approaches the life-support machine, the patient in the hospital becomes anxious. 'What are you doing?' 'Is there something wrong with the machine?' 'Are you going to turn it off?' 'Who do you think you are?' 'Keep your hands off that!' You can see why there is such resistance to those of us who preach the way we do. We tamper with the spiritual life-support machinery. For those who depend on the aids for their supposed life, the machines become the central focus of their existence. The machines must be maintained, protected, and plugged in. They even go through periodic upgrades and updating! Modern methods are ever changing to provide for the patient's comfort, and to keep up with the times. Old practices fall into obscurity, and if revived, they are seen as new ideas. Some will accuse me of confusing folk, but I say, "Let's turn off the machines and see who can breath on their own." There is only confusion as long as the machine is being used. We have all read of instances where the doctors resisted attempts by family members to have the machines which were hooked to their loved ones turned off. "They will not be able to function," they are told. But when the machines were unplugged, the patient was able to maintain on their own! The machine was what was actually causing the confusion. If we turn off the spiritual life-supports, a person who is not dependent on the machinery will not be harmed, and those who are dependent need to die anyhow, if they hope to get real salvation and make heaven. It is the spiritual doctors, who have allowed lost folks to depend on something other than a divine operation of God for life, that are the problem. My proposed cure is not a new cure, it is the old fashioned gospel; it is the balm of Gilead; it is the Great Physician. Let's return to preaching that says a person must have a time and place in their life, when the Holy Ghost of God brings conviction to their heart through the preaching of the Word of God. And that this conviction produces godly sorrow leading to repentance toward God, and results in faith towards the Lord Jesus Christ. Let's again tell folks that this is the result of God working in a person both to will and to do of His good pleasure, and results in a new creature, that is, a new creation, in Christ. This is Bible! This is salvation worth having! - J. M. Grapp

A look into the unbiblical 'decisional gospel'

The fact that most overlook the accursed gospel spewed out by many, including the late Billy Graham, prompted me to put this post up. There are not two different gospels, one of grace and one of 'free will'. There is one Gospel, and it never includes man's ability to help save himself.

"The first thing we must do, is define what is meant by the term 'decisional regeneration,' in the context which will be referred to in this booklet. Some might get the idea that this term is speaking of what has come to be called 'easy-believism.' This is true to a point, but what most would call easy-believism is actually just one form of decisional regeneration. There is a great trunk with many branches which have grown up out of the root of decisional regeneration. In addition, there are many differing definitions of what easy-believism actually is.
    Decisional regeneration, simply stated, is any doctrine which maintains that an individual is saved by a mere 'decision of the will.' That is, doctrine which teaches that men can be saved by merely making a conscious choice to be saved. This doctrine emphasizes the 'free will' of man, and is actually a free will doctrine. Decisional regeneration ultimately proclaims that if a person sincerely desires salvation and makes a decision to act on that desire, they can be saved. As set forth above, this decision may lead to any one of a number of acts, none of which are sufficient to produce genuine salvation.
    One form of decisional regeneration may instruct the sinner to 'invite Christ into the heart,' another may teach that salvation comes through praying 'the sinner's prayer,' yet another may promote 'giving one's life to Christ,' another might instruct the seeker to 'claim the promise.' There are a multitude of means employed by those who practice this, but the doctrine which is at the root of these means is one which relies on an individual making a decision based primarily on their will.
    It should be pointed out that those who teach and practice a decisional regeneration doctrine would likely never state that they are doing so, and may not even realize they are. Yet it may often be recognized by what they preach regarding how salvation is obtained. It will surely be evident in what they practice when dealing with individuals seeking salvation.
    In some instances a preacher may preach the truth regarding salvation, but one must then watch how these preachers apply what they preach. That is, one must observe what is practiced when dealing with an individual at the altar, or in their evangelistic methods, to really see decisional regeneration at work. Some preachers actually go contrary to what they have just preached when it comes to personally dealing with individuals seeking salvation. In other words, their 'application' does not align with their 'declaration.'
    One might wonder how a preacher could go contrary to what they have just preached, or be unaware that they are actually holding to a doctrine of decisional regeneration while denying such is true.
    The answer is found in the fact that Satan is a deceiver and the heart is deceitful above all things. Without the Holy Spirit of God illuminating the mind, men can believe one thing and say and practice something totally contrary without seeing the contradiction in it. The quote from II Timothy 3, which was given at the beginning of this booklet makes it clear that there would be men who had been deceived in the area of doctrine, and would deceive others also.
    We know, too, from I Corinthians 2:14, that spiritual things cannot be understood without the Holy Spirit giving illumination.
    Also, a lack of understanding regarding what certain doctrines actually are, can lead to confusion when defending or refuting them. For example, one may have been told by those who taught them that they are not Free Will Baptists. But if that individual doesn't know what constitutes free will doctrine, he could easily preach and practice it without even being aware of such. Merely stating or repeating certain words, phrases or doctrines does not mean that one necessarily believes them, or even that they are true. It has been said that 'a lie if repeated often enough becomes the truth.' While this is not literally true, it is often the case that the lie will come to be perceived to be the truth, and thus accepted as the truth, though it still be a lie.
    Whether decisional regeneration is preached and practiced, or whether it is practiced in spite of what is preached, it will certainly be manifested in the way that seeking sinners are dealt with. This is where one must observe closely what takes place, lest decisional regeneration is overlooked.
    This is not to imply that all preachers who practice decisional regeneration are consciously deceiving people. Many preachers do not even see that there is difference in what they preach and how they apply what they have preached.
    Decisional regeneration will also tend to over-emphasize the 'responsibility of man.'
    Some may already be tempted to label me at this point, but let me say that it is certainly true that man is a 'free moral agent' in the sense that he is not a robot, and he has a will which he can exercise. But man's will is not truly free in the sense that some would teach.
    It is certainly true as well that man has a 'moral responsibility' toward God. Man is obligated to 'repent and believe the gospel.' Acts 17:30 makes this clear when it says, 'And the times of this ignorance God winked at; but now commandeth all men every where to repent:' If an individual does not do this, he cannot be saved. This is plainly seen in Luke 13:3&5, where we read in both verses, '...except ye repent, ye shall all likewise perish.' The problem is that there are several hindrances and obstacles in man's way which prevent him from doing so on his own.
    Finally, it is also true that an individual is willing to be saved when God has worked completely in them. No individual is saved against his will. But let it be perfectly clear, that man is only willing after a divine operation of the Spirit of God on their heart. David wrote in Psalm 110:3, 'Thy people shall be willing in the day of thy power...' We also know from Philippians 2:13, 'For it is God which worketh in you both to will and to do of [his] good pleasure.' It is true that one becomes a willing participant in salvation, but only after God has worked on their depraved will.
    Decisional regeneration's roots are as old as the gospel itself, and this booklet is not sufficient to fully detail all of the branches which have shot forth from its resulting trunk.

 In his book, 'The five points of Calvinism,' Edwin H. Palmer states, '...Calvinism does not have five points; and neither is Calvin the author of the five first glance, many believe that Calvin is the author of the five points. Such a misconception ignores the fact that Calvin simply expounded the Bible. Calvin did not invent a new teaching any more than Columbus invented America or Newton the law of gravity. As Columbus and Newton merely discovered what had existed all along, so Calvin uncovered truths that had been in the Bible all the time. And Calvin was not the first nor the last to uncover these Biblical truths. Many others confessed them too, from Augustine to Gottschalk to Spurgeon; from Lutherans to Baptists to Dominicans, from Dutch to Scottish to French; from individuals to associations to church confessions; from laymen to hymn-writers to theologians. The name Calvinism has often been used, not because Calvin was the first or sole teacher, but because after the long silence of the Middle Ages, he was the most eloquent and systematic expositor of these truths. To the novitiate, however, it seemed as if Calvin originated them.'

 One has only to read the testimonies of men like Bunyan, Spurgeon, &c. to see that either they went through much needless travail, and that 20th century Christianity has found a 'secret formula' for salvation, or that these were correct in their apprehension of salvation, and there is confusion over what salvation is and how it is obtained in most churches today. These men and others of equal caliber said, "Salvation is hard." We say, "It is simple." Jesus said that it is 'impossible' without God. He went on to say that all things are possible with God, but never said it was easy or simple!
    We have made salvation the product of plans, programs, prayers, and promise claiming, while God's Word says it is "...of the LORD." Many today presume to label God 'unfair' for His judgements and operations regarding the salvation issue. Men do not want to be accountable to God, much less to His divinely appointed judges; the true men of God. They choose, rather, to elect their own. from

Did Billy Graham preach the gospel?

The recent death of Billy Graham has caused quite a stir; I've heard some sermons that spoke against his ecumenical ways - that is good. BUT, these sermons also state Graham preached the gospel. This is where I differ from most, for the message Graham delivered was an arminian type message, which is no gospel at all. The Apostle Paul calls such a gospel 'accursed'. 

Here are samples of Graham's message, 'But you will have to make that first decision, take that first step. You will have to say, “Yes, by faith I receive You, Lord, into my heart.”I’m asking you to do that right now. Say, “I receive Christ. I want to follow Christ. I want to give all my keys to Him, no matter what the cost. I’m willing to pay the price, whatever it is.” ©1979 BGEA  from

Notice the title, 'learn how to follow Jesus'. Can the spiritually discerned do this? Not according to the Apostle Paul, '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 
There isn't a verse to back the 'make that first decision' mentality Graham spewed out. His man-centered message puts the ability to be saved on the sinner's decision, and robs God of His sovereignty. 

Graham was very good at mixing a bit of truth with his error, which is why he is so highly esteemed! He mentions Jesus, sin, repentance, etc. That only adds to the confusion and delusion by him.

Here's more from the Grahams...
“If you make no decision for Christ, you’re making a decision against Christ,” Graham said, adding that you can’t stay neutral about Jesus. You can accept Him or reject Him, but if you try to sit on the fence, you’re not following Him. “Some of you want to stay neutral … you don’t want to be a Christian because you don’t want to give up your lifestyle,” Graham said. “The greatest decision I ever made was to follow Jesus Christ. That’s when I really started to live.”- from

There's one verse that negates ALL that Graham spewed out, it's found in Ephesians 2:8-9, 'For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast.' 

Where are the men and women of God who will stand against this evil message? Where is the boldness to call Graham out for what he was, a false teacher as well as an ecumenist? There IS a faithful remnant that DO see the evil of Graham and his man centered message, that have not been deluded by Graham's smooth speech and good ole boy mentality. 

This post only scratches the surface of Graham's evil ways, there is MUCH more that could be said, but this is enough to show what Graham preached is nowhere found in the bible. God forbid we ever tell dead in sin sinners they can be saved by making a decision, then popishly declaring them as saved! This works based mentality is the key in linking all dead religions together in the end time, and all who agree. This is the delusion that will seal the fate of many.

I recommend this excellent article----

the spirit of compromise- *updated*

“I make no personal reference, but I see the spirit of compromise concerning holiness and sin, truth and error, far too prevalent. The spirit of compromise comes not of the Spirit of God, but of the spirit of the world. It is always wisest and best to exhibit clear decision upon fundamental points; we must draw the line distinctly, and then stand to it firmly. Do not alter your course because of winds and currents. Do not try to make things pleasant all round. Do not be like the fellow, in one of the American towns, who saw a traveller leaning against a lamp-post, weary and worn with his journey. The traveller enquired of him how far it was to such a place, and was told that it was ten miles. The weary traveller sighed, and said, “I shall never hold out. I shall faint on the road.” “Ah!” said his sympathizing informant, “I did not know you were quite so far gone, I will knock off three miles, and make it seven for you.” Of course, this operation in words did not alter the fact, nor really reduce the ten to seven. Yet this is the method of some weakly, amiable souls; they tone down truth, forgetting that their tone does not affect the fact.An All-Round Ministry: Addresses to Ministers and Students.” – C.H. Spurgeon from 'an all around ministry'

February 21, 2018
WASHINGTON—His Eminence, Cardinal Daniel N. DiNardo, Archbishop of Galveston-Houston and President of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops, has issued the following statement on receiving the news of the Rev. Billy Graham's death:

"Today, we pray for the soul of the Rev. Billy Graham to the Lord he so dearly loved and offer our condolences to his family. Billy Graham was a preacher of God's Word not only in his sermons, but also in the very life he lived. His faith and integrity invited countless thousands around the world into a closer relationship with our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Thanks be to God for the ministry of Billy Graham."- source -

I  ask those who defend Graham this, why is it an Archbishop from a dead religion thinks Graham was a 'preacher of God's word'? Here's why, it's because Graham NEVER PREACHED the true Gospel of Christ.
