Serving God In Vain

Matthew 15:8-9, “This people draweth nigh unto me with their mouth, and honoureth me with their lips; but their heart is far from me. But in vain they do worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men.”

       Serving God “IN VAIN” means that you are wasting your time, because God is not going to bless you (or is no longer blessing you). You are in fact, pulling on the SAME ROPE AS THE DEVIL. So why would God bless you? Our text Bible verse warns that those who substitute men's commandments in place of God's commandments are worshipping the Lord Jesus Christ IN VAIN.

The text verse above is so very important to understand. Throughout history, and today especially in modern times, groups of religious people have met together to sing praises to God. They were all sincere, honoring God with their lips, praising Him with their mouths, but the Bible says they WORSHIPPED GOD IN VAIN, because they taught manmade doctrines instead of the Words of God. All is in vain if the truth is corrupted!!!

Having said that, Satan knows that if he can change the Word of God, then he can get you to worship God in vain, and you'll go to Hell forever when you die. Satan's greatest weapon is to con people into living the Christian life without ever being born-again. All the Devil needs to do is to change the meaning of how a person is saved. There are churches all across the world today where unsaved religious people meet regularly to WORSHIP JESUS CHRIST IN VAIN, because they have adopted a wrong plan of salvation. This is happening to many of our evangelical churches, because Satan has infiltrated them with corrupt Bible versions, which have changed what it means to be saved.

The Alexandrian Bible revisions are corrupt. If you have a modern Bible, Acts 8:37 has been totally removed, which now teaches baptismal regeneration when you read verses 36 and 38 without verse 37. Also, check out Mark 10:24 in the modern perverted Bible revisions, which teach that IT IS HARD to enter into God's kingdom. What a satanic Bible revisions!!! You won't find that garbage in the trustworthy King James Bible. My friend, Satan is the father of all murderers and liars (John 8:44).

If I were the Devil, I'd publish hundreds of English Bible revisions to confuse people. According to the American Bible Society, there are now approximately 900 different English Bible versions!!! Of course people in the churches are confused, just like Satan planned it! But I'm not confused—I only recognize and use one Bible—the precious KING JAMES BIBLE. Pastor Jack Hyles (1926-2001) saw what the sneaky Devil was up to, and he warned everyone. Please, please, listen to the following tremendous MP3 sermon. Download it and share it with others. Burn the sermon to CD's and pass them out at church to others. Give one to your pastor, and leave the church if he is offended by it. Let's warn everyone about the satanic Bible revisions, and tell them to only use the accurate and reliable KING JAMES BIBLE...

BATTLE OF THE AGES (Dr. Hyles, “The King James Bible crowd is going to come out on top!”)

The bottom line is that if your church is using a manmade Bible version (which many of them now even openly claim), you are WORSHIPPING GOD IN VAIN, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men. Matthew 15:8-9, “This people draweth nigh unto me with their mouth, and honoureth me with their lips; but their heart is far from me. But in vain they do worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men.” Biblica, the evil company that produces the New International Version (NIV) Bible series, openly admit on their website that they DON'T believe in word-for-word inspiration. Instead, they believe in thought inspiration, that is, God gave His thoughts to men, and then those men wrote the Bible down in their own words. This is wrong!

Call it “mechanic dictation” if you'd like, but the Bible says in 2nd Peter 1:21, “For the prophecy came not in old time by the will of man: but holy men of God spake as they were moved by the Holy Ghost.” David said in Psalms 45:1, “My heart is inditing a good matter: I speak of the things which I have made touching the king: my tongue is the pen of a ready writer.” Please read, HOW WE GOT GOD'S WORD, by Pastor Jack Hyles. Moses couldn't possibly have known any of the things about creation which he wrote about in the Pentateuch (i.e., the first 5 books of the Old Testament). Clearly, God spoke and then Moses wrote. It's that simple. The Bible teaches that every word in the Bible was written as God's Holy Spirit moved upon the various different writers. Thus, they are 100% God's Words and 0% man's words. Biblica says on their website that the Bible is “very human.” Well, their satanic manmade NIV certainly is “very human,” because it is not God's Holy Word. Consequently, they are WORSHIPPING GOD IN VAIN.

Every church that uses manmade Bible versions are teaching for doctrines the commandments of men. This is exactly what the heresy of Lordship Salvation is—manmade doctrine. The following articles should alarm you, the reader, as you see just how horribly Satan has corrupted the Word of God, and his infiltrated the churches with these manmade Bibles and doctrines. Please read read the following articles exposing the “Easy-To-Read Version” (ERV) of the Holy Bible, which are satanic imposters. . .

ERV Corrupts Romans 4:5-6, Eliminating the Doctrine of Imputation

The 'Easy-To-Read Version' (ERV) Satanic Counterfeit

'Easy-To-Read Version' (ERV) Changes Plan Of Salvation

As you have witnessed for yourself, these are Satanic works of darkness which have crept into our churches. I have been warning a group of local neo-evangelical Baptist pastors, with a congregation of over 1,000 victims, that they are doing a grave injustice to their people and spitting on the Lord Jesus Christ (Who is the Word of God), by using the ERV in their church. Nothing is more important than the Word of God!!! Psalms 138:2 says, “I will worship toward thy holy temple, and praise thy name for thy lovingkindness and for thy truth: for thou hast magnified thy word above all thy name.” God pity that pastor who lacks enough concern and/or spiritual discernment to see that something is very wrong with two completely different Bibles, which originate from two entirely different Hebrew and Greek sources.

I Find No Fault In This Man (Dr. Hyles, “We believe this King James Bible is the ONLY Bible!”)

“Every word in this Bible is inspired by God almighty!”
—Dr. Jack Hyles, a quote from the awesome sermon, A Friend At Midnight ”; preached January 29, 1989

If your apostate church is using the modern manmade Bible versions, then you are teaching for doctrines the commandments of men. YOU ARE WORSHIPPING GOD IN VAIN. This means you will receive no rewards from God in Heaven. This means that God is not pleased with you. This means that you have been woefully deceived. This means you are not saved if you think that the act of departing from sinful living had a part in your salvation. I dare say 97% of churchgoers today are not saved. Evangelist Paul Washer calls the Romans Road “a manipulative practice.” You see, Mr. Washer believes that a person must persevere in holy living if they are really saved. So anyone who professes faith in Christ, but does not walk “the narrow way” of holy living, is said by Mr. Washer not to be saved at all. Beware of Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary (this is where Paul Washer gets his Calvinism).

Something that I've noticed, which is a disturbing trend, are pastors who accept all sorts of different plans of salvation, and don't see a problem with any of them. Thus, we hear some people say to “trust Jesus” to be saved. Others say that you need to “start a relationship with the Lord” to be saved. Others teach that you cannot be saved unless you forsake a lifestyle of sin. Then there are those who say that you must “be willing to turn away from the sins you've been committing,” or else God won't save you, in spite of any faith you may have in the Gospel. I could literally list a hundred more variations of how religious leaders say we get to Heaven. May I say, all of the aforementioned teachings are of the Devil. None of them will produce the new birth by the Holy Spirit of God. Trusting Jesus and starting a relationship with Christ are not the Gospel. So what is the Gospel? Also, please read, “What Is The Gospel?” (by Pastor Harry Ironside, 1876-1951).

The bad news is that we are all guilty sinners in God's holy eyes, because we have broken His commandments. We have sinned against a holy God. The “Gospel” is the Good News that Jesus is our Savior, Who died on the cross for our sins, was buried, and then He bodily raised up (resurrected) three days later (1st Corinthians 15:1-4). This is the Gospel message, by which if you simply believe it, you are immediately born-again and eternally secure. Salvation is a new birth (a second, spiritual, birth). It is not a process. Being born again is a supernatural miracle of God in response to a person's faith in the Gospel. Tragically, many (and I mean many) people in churches today are living the Christian life, but they have never been born-again by the Holy Spirit of God, and are still hellbound in their sins. For a wonderful book on this very topic, please read, I NEVER KNEW YOU: THE COMING GREAT WHITE THRONE OF JUDGMENT AND HOW YOU CAN AVOID IT! (.pdf book by Michael P. Bowen).

If TO BE SAVED you believe that you have to forsake the world, cease from sinful bad habits, surrender all to Christ, commit yourself to Him, confess Christ before men, or anything along those lines, then sadly YOU ARE WORSHIPPING GOD IN VAIN! The Gospel is good news to be believed, not a religious program to be obeyed. Eternal life is a free gift, which you simply TAKE to possess. That's it! The Devil is deliberately confusing everybody today, especially in the churches, by bringing in all these new and supposedly “Easier-To-Read” Bible versions. What good is a Bible that's easier to read, which has been changed from God's holy Words into the commandments of men? Check this out, see for yourself how ALL the new Bible versions attack the deity of Jesus Christ.

The thing that frustrates me the most are all the tens-of-thousands of deadbeat pastors who couldn't care less. When I hear the shallow singing about Jesus on a religious radio station, I feel like vomiting, because I know that the people singing are just going along with whatever they've been taught, and don't think for themselves, wholeheartedly and ignorantly going along with the New World Order!!! They do so by using the modern Alexandrian Bible revisions. They do so by supporting modern-day manmade Israel which was founded in 1948 by the Illuminati. They do so by promoting the heresy of Lordship Salvation, which is not the Gospel. Why don't pastors care? How could a man of God be so indifferent toward truth and evil? Our churches today have become affluent, missing the power of the Holy Spirit, having dead pulpits with no real fundamentalist Bible preaching. God forgive us!

The major manmade doctrine in today's corrupted versions is the heresy of Lordship Salvation. This demonic doctrine teaches that it is insufficient to realize one's sinnership and believe the Gospel to be saved, but also, the person must wilfully and intentionally turn away from all evil activities in their life to be saved. This false idea comes from the corrupt Bible versions, which change the meaning of “repentance” from a simple “change of mind,” to a complicated “change of life” to be saved. I don't care how big your church is. You may have 25,000 members. You may have millions-of-dollars a year in income. You may have a big religious school with 7,000 students. You may be admired, accepted, invited and popular all across the planet. But if you are promoting and using the modern manmade PERverted Bible versions, which confuse people and lead them astray from the truth of God's Word, you are God's enemies!!! You are in fact pulling on the same rope as the Devil. Jesus said that you are WORSHIPPING GOD IN VAIN.

All of the modern versions teach the lie of Lordship Salvation, requiring in Romans 10:9-10 that a person audibly say, “Jesus is Lord” to be saved. This is superstition, not the simplicity that is in Christ (2nd Corinthians 11:3-4). We read about a group of religious idiots and Independent Baptist fools in Matthew 7:21-23, who honored the Lord with their lips, and they did many wonderful works with their hands, and they made sure to preach everywhere they went in Jesus' name; yet THEY ALL WENT TO HELL TO BURN!!!

They said “Jesus is Lord,” “Jesus is Lord,” just like the satanic Easy-To-Read Version says in Romans 10:9-10, but they failed to do the will of the Father. John 6:40 plainly tells us what the will of the Father in Heaven is, And this is the will of him that sent me, that every one which seeth the Son, and believeth on him, may have everlasting life: and I will raise him up at the last day.” So you go ahead and keep telling people that God won't save them unless they stop living in their deliberate sinful ways, which is not the will of the Father concerning salvation, and you will spend eternity burning in the Lake of Fire with those you have deceived.

At the point in which a church, pastor or Christian leader starts using and promoting the modern corrupted Bible versions (like the ERV and NIV), they are now pulling on the same rope as the Devil. When that pastor and church start teaching the manmade doctrine of Lordship Salvation, they are now leading people into Hell, fire and damnation by teaching a false plan of salvation. They are WORSHIPPING GOD IN VAIN. They run their mouths about how good God is, they sing “Holy, Holy, Holy” with their tongues, they honor God with their lips, but THEIR HEART IS FAR FROM HIM, because Jesus said in John 4:24 that God can only be worshipped in SPIRIT and in TRUTH. When a church body succumbs to manmade doctrines, they have abandoned THE TRUTH, and are no longer worshipping God as they ought. Since they are not saved, they have religion instead of the HOLY SPIRIT. How can they worship God? Yes, many of our churches (including Independent Baptist churches) today are WORSHIPPING GOD IN VAIN, unwittingly going along with the Luciferian New World Order, Luciferian Bible versions and a Luciferian false plan of salvation.


Redeeming The Time

Matthew 9:37-38, “Then saith he unto his disciples, The harvest truly is plenteous, but the labourers are few; Pray ye therefore the Lord of the harvest, that he will send forth labourers into his harvest.”

“Nobody can love God who doesn't love sinners!”
(a quote by Dr. Jack Hyles classic MP3 sermon, “The Happiest Man” (happiest is the man who will not impute sin to others!)

If you believe what the Bible teaches, attend a church that teaches the Bible!
