DISCIPLINE – Worldly vs Biblical


What springs to mind when you hear the word discipline ? To some it may conjure up thoughts of cruelty, uncivilized behaviour, lovelessness, and primitive brutality. If you are into psychology and especially child psychology these are the thoughts that will govern your mind.

And just to refresh your mind that psychology, of whatever strain, is diametrically opposed to God’s Word and his instructions, here are some quotes from the lips of a few leading psychologists.

eli-falling-off-his-chair - discipline

Papa Eli’s ancient child psychology and its result – breaking his neck when falling backward to his death from his stool.

The Shaman (witch doctor) . . . can be viewed as an early psychotherapist (Herbert Bensen, M.D. Harvard professor).

The basic model of man that led to the development of [Eastern] meditational techniques is the same model that led to humanistic psychotherapies (Lawrence leShan, past president of the “Association for Humanistic Psychology {AHP}).

The core of the problem, which psychological and psychiatric research has not resolved yet, and is unlikely to resolve, consists in a correct distinction between pathological behaviour of a psychic nature and demonic invasion (Eugenio Fizzoti, Professor: The Psychology of Religion, School of Education, Pontifical Salesian University, Rome).

It is indeed shocking that many, if not most forms of psychotherapy currently offered to consumers are not supported by credible scientific evidence. (R. Christopher Barden, psychologist, lawyer and president of the National Association for Consumer protection in mental Health Practices).

Psychiatry has been willing to sanctify its values with the holy water of medicine and offer them up as the true faith of Mental health. It is a false Messiah. (E. Fuller Torrey, Internationally respected psychiatrist).


The Mandorla Gods of the New World Order – Part 1


I attended a “Learning Experience” entitled “Summoned2Serve” presented by Leonard Sweet, Stephan Joubert and Lindie Strydom (presenter of “Geloof, Hoop en Liefde” on KYKNET TV) in the Kerksondermure Auditorium in Pretoria on 1 October 2016. Among other things, Leonard Sweet spoke about the Mandorla.

Wikipedia defines the Mandorla as follows:

A mandorla is an aureola, usually in the shape of a vesica piscis, which surrounds the figures of Christ and the Virgin Mary in traditional Christian art. It is distinguished from a halo in that it encircles the entire body, and not just the head. It is commonly used to frame the figure of Christ in Majesty in early medieval and Romanesque art, as well as Byzantine art of the same periods.

The term mandorla, from the Italian language name for the “almond” nut, refers to the usual shape. Sometimes however, especially in earlier depictions, the mandorla takes circular or elliptical forms. Sometimes, also usually in earlier forms, the mandorla is shown as the intersection of two circles. Rhombic mandorlas are also sometimes seen.

In icons of the Eastern Orthodox Church, the mandorla is used to depict sacred moments which transcend time and space, such as the Resurrection and the Transfiguration of Christ and the Dormition of the Theotokos. These mandorla will often be painted in several concentric patterns of color which grow darker as they come close to the center. This is in keeping with the church’s use of apophatic theology, as described by Dionysius the Areopagite and others. As holiness increases, there is no way to depict its brightness except by darkness. (Tom Lessing: also referred to as “The Cloud of Unknowing” where the contemplative becomes one with God). (Emphasis added)


Rebellion, A Sin Of Witchcraft

Rebellion, A Sin Of WitchcraftREBELLION, A SIN OF WITCHCRAFT


1 Samuel 15:23

(23)  For rebellion is as the sin of witchcraft, and stubbornness is as iniquity and idolatry. Because thou hast rejected the word of the LORD, he hath also rejected thee from being king. (or any other position of rank, like a pastor). (Tom Lessing: In other words, stubbornness is just as good as kneeling or falling down before and worshipping a statue of Buddha or any other idol).

What I am about to write here on the topic of rebellion is not at all easy for me and may offend my son, Bernard and his wife, Marilie. However, if they are convinced that they are following Jesus Christ and not another Jesus and that they are not deceived in any which way possible, then they have no need to be offended and should rebuke me for accusing them falsely in public.


Scott Pruitt and His No-Pretrib Fallacies – Part 2


As a rule, it’s a very good thing to cross-refer to passages in the Old Testament when you want to emphasize and substantiate certain New Testament truths. However, you ought to make very sure that your cross references harmonize with the things you wish to verify, especially when your name is Scott Pruitt.

Scott Pruitt does indeed cross-refer to the Old Testament but seems to have missed the fact that his cross references miserably disprove his position on the Post-Tribulation Rapture. Let us now examine his cross reference with regard to his article “3 Reasons Why There Cannot Be A Pre-Tribulation Rapture,” in the light of Scripture. He tries very hard to substantiate his No-Pretrib diatribes in his second reason why there cannot be a Pre-Tribulation Rapture.


Scott Pruitt and His No-Pretrib Fallacies – Part 1


Scott Pruitt manages a blog called “No-Pretrib” which he ardently graces with one page after another filled with gross fallacies, some of which come very close to blasphemy.

How do I come to this conclusion? References to Satan as a liar are widespread in the Bible. However, there are those who unashamedly place Jesus Christ in the same category as Satan and brazenly insinuate that He is a liar which is closer to blasphemy than Satan is to his eternal perdition in the Lake of Fire.


Soaking – A Once Lost Art…



I usually do not mince words, especially when the subject has to do with man’s relationship with God and his eternal destiny. So, without any further ado, allow me to tell you upfront what soaking and all the other similar methods Christians adore practicing actually are and where it is leading the unsuspecting. We are commanded to love and worship the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob with all our heart, and with all our soul, and with all our strength, and with all our mind; . . . (Luke 10:27). We are transformed by  the renewing of our mind (Romans 12:2) and not through techniques boorowed from E astern mysticism.

Louis Matthys Ackermann

Jeremiah 1:5  – In this edition of my series of short articles which was sparked by a friend, Louis Matthys Ackermann, and who has since unfriended himself on my Facebook page because I am an anti-Calvinist (some of my best friends in the Calvinist fold call me the Antichrist), I would like to focus on an Old Testament passage Jeremiah 1:5 the reformed theologians love to quote to validate their views on election and predestination.

Before we dig a little deeper into the meaning of Jeremiah 1:5, I would first like to remind our self-unfriended Facebook friend, Louis Ackermann , that Jesus was more of a gentleman than he could ever be. Why? Because he never unfriended one of his worst enemies. Listen to this, Mr. Ackermann, and learn from it. » PLEASE CONTINUE READING HERE »

Louis Matthys Ackermann

During my latest tête-à-tête with Loius Matthys Ackermann, someone I have known for quite some time on Facebook, sent me a list of Bible verses which he believes are ample proof that the doctrines of grace (Calvinism) are the warp and woof of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. In point of fact, he accused me of “not knowing the Gospel that was created before the foundation of the world” and that “he was beginning to think that I, as an Arminian, was an ignoramus in regard to sound theology.” » PLEASE CONTINUE READING HERE »

Pre-Trib – Suppressing the Truth in Unrighteousness

Left Behind or led astray - Pre-TribPRE-TRIB:  SUPPRESSING THE TRUTH IN UNRIGHTEOUSNESS  (UPDATED – See Addendum)

In this article, which is a follow-up of “PreTrib Rapture vs PostTrib Rapture” I aim to discuss the many questions I asked the No Pre-Trib crowd, Scott Pruitt among them, which by the way, they refused to answer and eventually summarily banned me from their blogs and YouTube channels.

Romans 1:18

For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness;  (KJV)

For [God does not overlook sin and] the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men who in their wickedness suppress and stifle the truth,  (AMP) » PLEASE CONTINUE READING HERE »

Koinonia House – The Adoration of Mary

William P. Welty and Koinonia House - The Adoration of Mary Ten Test Questions for the World's Finest Woman

Mary: Ten Test Questions for the World’s Finest Woman Book by Dr. William Welty –

William P. Welty, Chuck Missler and Koinonia House – The Adoration of Mary

Koinonia House (Chuck Missler and William Welty) – An article was just released by William P. Welty from Koinonia House entitled “Maybe It’s Time You Met the World’s Finest Woman” from the May 02, 2016 eNews issue.

William P. Welty  is “a member of the Board of Directors of Koinonia House and has been asked to serve as Scholar in Residence on the faculty of the Koinonia Institute”[1].  In other words he and Chuck Missler are super duper big buddies.  In fact they are so close they even have a satellite network in outer space they built together called SWANSAT that does the United Nation’s bidding. (The United Nations is a Luciferian organisation).

When I received this article in my email from Koinonia House, I thought, “oh, ok, maybe they are just going to tell you the story about Mary as you would do for any biblical character”.  And then I started to read the article and I was shocked to say the least. I got to find that, no, they are not just telling you a historical story about Mary, they are in fact giving her adoration and they want you too as well.  Let me show you what I mean. » PLEASE CONTINUE READING HERE »

Margaret MacDonald’s Vision: Pre-Trib? Really?

Margaret MacDonald's visionMargaret MacDonald’s Vision: Pre-Trib? Really?

I get a lot of emails and comments by people that believe there will be no pre-tribulation rapture and point me to the so called Pre-Trib vision by Margaret MacDonald that was made known by Dave MacPherson in his book called “The Incredible Cover-up”, pp. 151-157. 1975

Wikipedia says this about Margaret MacDonald

“Margaret MacDonald was born in 1815 in Port Glasgow, Scotland and died around 1840.[1] She lived with her two older brothers, James and George, both of whom ran a shipping business.[1] Beginning in 1826 and through 1829, a few preachers in Scotland emphasized that the world’s problems could only be addressed through an outbreak of supernatural gifts from the Holy Spirit.[2] In response, Isabella and Mary Campbell of the parish of Rosneath manifested charismatic experiences such as speaking in tongues. Around 1830, miraculous healings were reported through James Campbell, first of his sister Margaret MacDonald and then of Mary Campbell (through James’s letter to Mary).[3] Shortly thereafter James and George MacDonald manifested the speaking and interpretations of tongues, and soon others followed suit in prayer meetings. These charismatic experiences garnered major national attention. Many came to see and investigate these events. Some, such as Edward Irving and Henry Drummond, regarded these events as genuine displays from the Holy Spirit. Others, including John Nelson Darby and Benjamin Wills Newton, whom the Brethren sent on their behalf to investigate, came to the conclusion that these displays were demonic.[4]


Pre-Trib Rapture vs Post-Trib Rapture

Left Behind or Led Astray: Pre-Trib Rapture vs Post-Trib Rapture

The Left Behind Movie starring Nicolas Cage (a Freemason) opened in theaters on October 3, 2014. To counter the false teaching of pre-tribulationism.



Pre-Trib Rapture vs Post-Trib Rapture:  Factions and divisions have always been commonplace among Christians. How do we know this? Paul himself wrote:

“For first of all, when ye come together in the church, I hear that there be divisions among you; and I partly believe it. For there must be also heresies among you, that they which are approved may be made manifest among you.” (1 Corinthians 11:18-19)

Paul sincerely sought to foster a harmonious unity among the members of the church but knew that the perpetual presence of sin made it virtually impossible to unify the church under every single doctrine given to the church.

One of the doctrines that came under constant attack by false teachers was the imminent return of Jesus Christ at the Pre-Trib Rapture. Hence his serious warning against false teachers in 2 Thessalonians 2. » PLEASE CONTINUE READING HERE »

Orbital Hermeneutics by John MacArthur

Orbital Hermeneutics Election PredestinationOrbital Hermeneutics

Once your mind gets hooked or locked onto a central idea or theme in your view of life and the world, everything you say or do will orbit or circle that idea or theme, in much the same way satellites orbit the earth. Hence the title of this article “Orbital Hermeneutics.”

For instance, let’s assume you are a Calvinist and the earth in the picture on the left represents election/predestination/God’s sovereignty, the most common thing you would do then, is to make all your sermons or Gospel presentations circle your mindset of election, predestination and God’s sovereignty.

No matter what you preach to people, your mind will always predictably gravitate towards election, predestination and God’s sovereignty, albeit a warped idea of election, predestination and God’s sovereignty.

As may have been expected, this is precisely what John MacArthur does in his Amazing sermon on Election from Luke 4. » PLEASE CONTINUE READING HERE »
