The Nephilim Controversy

Book of Enoch

The Nephilim Controversy

Very few people seem to realize that the Nephilim theory is a Neo-Gnostic, New Age teaching and an emphatic denial of the uniqueness of Jesus Christ’s incarnation.

Genesis 6:1-7

And it came to pass, when men began to multiply on the face of the earth, and daughters were born unto them,

That the sons of God saw the daughters of men that they were fair; and they took them wives of all which they chose.

And the LORD said, My spirit shall not always strive with man, for that he also is flesh: yet his days shall be an hundred and twenty years.

There were giants in the earth in those days; and also after that, when the sons of God came in unto the daughters of men, and they bare children to them, the same became mighty men which were of old, men of renown.

And GOD saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually.

And it repented the LORD that he had made man on the earth, and it grieved him at his heart.

And the LORD said, I will destroy man whom I have created from the face of the earth; both man, and beast, and the creeping thing, and the fowls of the air; for it repenteth me that I have made them.

Please note that the words “men” and “man” appear no less than ten times in this passage. That alone indicates that we’re dealing with normal human beings and not fallen angels.

Nonetheless, some venture to call as witnesses Job 1 verse 6, 2 verse, 1, Jude 1 verse 6 and even Genesis 18 to prove that the sons of God were not human beings but fallen angels who entered into a marital relationship with the daughters of men and spawned children of flesh and blood (Nephilim; giants).

Who Is More Prone to False Teaching – a Black or a White man?

Is a black man or a white man more prone to false teaching?

It is often said that black people are more predisposed to false teaching because their culture is steeped in wizardry, shamanism, sorcery and witchcraft. Can it be true that this man – who claims to be a man of God and needs to test his faith because the Word of God says it is impossible to please God without faith – actually believes that he is pleasing God?

Some sangomas (witch doctors) in South Africa and more frequently in Africa (so it seems) are turning to Christianity because it is far easier to practice their wizardry in the Name of Jesus Christ and make stacks of money than it is to prance around in witch doctors garb and drink blood to summon their ancestors (demons disguised as their ancestors.

Latter Rain – Has it Poured into Your Church?

lion of judah - latter rain

What are the tell tale signs to know if your church is following Latter Rain / Manifest Sons of God teaching:

Here from Latter-Rain.com is an explanation of what Latter Rain teaching is. Sounds very Christian, sounds even biblical, but it is far from it.

“The Latter Rain is God’s great end-time ministry. The Latter Rain is the Restoration of the Church and the Harvest of souls, the gathering together of His people to be God’s Kingdom on earth. The Latter Rain is the promise given to us in the last days for the outpouring of the Holy Ghost. The Latter Rain blesses each of us with times of refreshing, it is for you and all who love peace to enter into now.

The foundation of the Latter Rain Page is firm in the pursuit of truth, justice and mercy. Deliverance to the captive church from the traditional legalism and quenching of the Spirit is through pointing you to the love of God through Jesus and the power of the Holy Spirit.

The Lord has given Christians the grace to reconcile the children to their Fathers As One Body

* We prepare for the Marriage Supper of the Lamb
* Harvest the Fruit of the Latter Rain
* Follow Him as the Army of the Lord into His Glory”

What to EXPECT in the Last Days

Colosseum  - last days

IT’S SO BEAUTIFUL ON THE OUTSIDE

In these last days that we are in, I would love to attend a Mighty Men Conference like I did the Absa Stadium conference back in 2008 so I could hear exactly what Angus preached for myself.  Of course I could not attend the MMC because women are not allowed as you all know, they even had security at the gates to make sure women did not sneak in.  The MMC are built on the principle of the Promise Keepers (Freemasons). It’s tough being a women nowadays, banned from hearing the word of God. Not that it was even preached there, so maybe it was a good thing. Women were protected by God from attending so they can help their husbands snap out of the hypnosis and lies by telling them the truth; reading the Word of God to them and through the complete guidance of the Holy Spirit realise that they have been deceived.

You know, it’s a common fact that men just don’t think sometimes that’s why women generally ask for directions when men are driving ;) Marriage is a joint union between husband and wife through Jesus Christ (I am talking about a husband and wife who are both born again.) She is there is look after him and love him and support him. He is there to look after her and love her and support her. She does silly things and he helps her get out of trouble. He does silly things and she helps him get out of trouble – all this by solely relying on Jesus for assistance – Jesus is THE problem solver.  Both men and women, husbands and wives, boys and girls can do nothing in their own strength.

Prof Johan Malan – A Gospel of Works – The Error of Lordship Salvation (Part 3)

Prof Johan Malan -AGospelofWorks

Please see Prof Johan Malan – A Gospel of Works – Losing your Salvation (Part 1) here and (Part 2)

Recently Deborah reconciled with Prof Johan Malan and asked forgiveness over publishing an article on his relationship with Calvinists.  See  apology here:    Prof Malan states that his theological views have not been altered, that he is still against Calvinism even though he befriends Calvinists. Right. We will let Prof Malan befriend who ever he wants.

Prof. Johan Malan has over the years publish articles pointing out the doctrinal errors of others, so we here at DTW believe he should not be upset if we take a look at his beliefs.

3) Prof Malan believes is Lordship Salvation.

Prof Johan Malan says, ‘Jesus made Nicodemus understand that theological knowledge and a good life was not enough to inherit the kingdom of God – he had to be born again (John 3:3)  The condition for receiving forgiveness and eternal life is the confession and forsaking of all known sins.’  [Emphasis added]http://www.bibleguidance.co.za/EngStudy/Biblestudy%20Lesson%207.htm

Love Covers All Transgressions

wolf-in-sheeps-clothing - love lies

Hatred stirs up strifes; But love covers all transgressions. (Proverbs 10:12).

Isn’t this a great verse to throw at anyone who dares to expose heretics and their false teachings? A dear sister of mine in the Lord with whom I attended many Bible studies for nearly twenty five years, recently told me that I should rather show forth love, compassion and affection for some of my closest family members who have fallen prey to the doctrines of demons in stead of warning them against their heresies and to come out from among those who are leading them astray. Her main reason for following the “love-route” instead of the “exhortation” or “rebuke-route” was that I would cause a rift between myself and my closest kin. Anyone who loves the Lord and his command to “. . . earnestly contend for the faith which was once delivered unto the saints,” (Jude 1:3), will inadvertently prepare the way for a rift. Please note that I deliberately said “inadvertently prepare the way for a rift” because the rift is not caused by the saint himself but by Jesus Christ.

The Intense Abhorrence of Apostasy

Apostasy

Abhorrence of Apostasy

One of the most amazing and awe-inspiring sections in the Bible is in Paul’s second letter to the Church in Thesslonica where he warns his brethren about the impending apostasy.

Let no one deceive or beguile you in any way, for that day will not come except the apostasy comes first [unless the predicted great falling away of those who have professed to be Christians has come], and the man of lawlessness (sin) is revealed, who is the son of doom (of perdition). (2 Thessalonians 2:3; Amplified Bible)

Of even greater astonishment is Jesus’ first denouncement of the Pharisees, beginning with “woe unto you” in Matthew 23:13:

But woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, pretenders (hypocrites)! For you shut the kingdom of heaven in men’s faces; for you neither enter yourselves, nor do you allow those who are about to go in to do so” (Matthew 23:13; Amplified Bible)

John F Walfoord writes in his book “The Kingdom of God,”p. 171:

Those [seven] woes in contrast to the Beatitudes denounce false religion as utterly abhorrent to God and worthy of severe condemnation.”

The Legacy of John Calvin – Part 2

John Calvin

I have already given a brief summary of what the essence is of Calvinism. However, as a short introduction to part 2 of my series on Calvinism, I would like to repeat it here.

John Calvin and Calvinism in a nutshell

* It is clear that Christ did not die to make redemption a mere possibility; He died to actually save people.
* God’s purpose cannot fail (Job 42:2; Isaiah 46:10).
* Therefore every single person for whom He died, shall be saved.
* Nevertheless, not all people are saved.
* Consequently Christ did not die for all people. If it were true that He died for all people He would have been a failure. (Emphasis added).

The question we need to ask ourselves, is: WHAT REDEEMS SINNERS? Is it merely the fact that they placed a crown of thorns on Christ’s head, scourged Him, nailed Him to a cross and that He died and rose from the dead?

If it were true that his crucifixion and resurrection automatically saves sinners (i.e. without the requirement to believe in his blood and to acknowledge that sinners will perish if the Spirit of God does not apply the cleansing power of His blood to their souls through faith), then the entire human race would have been redeemed without exception.

His death and resurrection minus faith on the part of the lost sinner would then have constituted eternal redemption. It would then not have been so difficult to accept the doctrine of Universal Redemption which, of course, is one of the things Calvinists accuse non-Calvinists of.

The Legacy of John Calvin – Part 1

John Calvin

Introduction

John Calvin’s day of birth 500 years ago on July 10, 1509 is a red letter day on the Protestants calendar this year. While many disillusioned clergy and congregates in the emergent church, who have lost their faith in the institutionalized church, are seeking new ways of interpreting the Bible and worshiping God, Calvinism has remained robust and alive in institutionalized Protestant churches.

In fact, many claim that Calvinism is experiencing an international resurgence. The most alarming fact about this resurgence is that Calvinism is finding a cozy niche in the Emerging Church, especially through its outreach to the youth, which makes it one of the vanguards in the establishment of the end-time one-world church. Michael Beck, a pastor of the Reformed Baptist Church in New Zealand says:

“There is currently a world wide resurgence of Calvinistic thought that is sure to have a growing influence upon the emerging church in New Zealand. This, in turn, is very likely to present the Reformed community with many unique ministry opportunities. So as to be ready for these, we should be both well informed and warmly engaged. ” (Read article here).

Calvinism – The Roman Catholic Connection

Calvinism Connection to Vatican

Calvinism – The Roman Catholic Connection

by 

THERE IS NO QUESTION that Calvin imposed upon the Bible certain erroneous interpretations from his Roman Catholic background. Many leading Calvinists agree that the writings of Augustine were the actual source of most of what is known as Calvinism today. Calvinists David Steele and Curtis Thomas point out that “The basic doctrines of the Calvinistic position had been vigorously defended by Augustine against Pelagius during the fifth century.” 1

In his eye-opening book, The Other Side of Calvinism , Laurence M. Vance thoroughly documents that “John Calvin did not originate the doctrines that bear his name….” 2 Vance quotes numerous well-known Calvinists to this effect. For example, Kenneth G. Talbot and W. Gary Crampton write, “The system of doctrine which bears the name of John Calvin was in no way originated by him….” 3 B. B. Warfield declared, “The system of doctrine taught by Calvin is just the Augustinianism common to the whole body of the Reformers.” 4 Thus the debt that the creeds coming out of the Reformation owe to Augustine is also acknowledged. This is not surprising in view of the fact that most of the Reformers had been part of the Roman Catholic Church, of which Augustine was one of the most highly regarded “saints.”  John Piper acknowledges that Augustine was the major influence upon both Calvin and Luther, who continued to revere him and his doctrines even after they broke away from Roman Catholicism. 5

C. H. Spurgeon admitted that “perhaps Calvin himself derived it [Calvinism] mainly from the writings of Augustine.” 6 Alvin L. Baker wrote, “There is hardly a doctrine of Calvin that does not bear the marks of Augustine’s influence.” 7 For example, the following from Augustine sounds like an echo reverberating through the writings of Calvin:

Jacob Prasch – Moderate Calvinists are Good, Hyper Calvinists are Bad.

Jacob Prasch

One of Satan’s greatest lies is to try and convince you that there are different types of Calvinists, that being the moderate Calvinist and then the hyper Calvinist.  It is a load of nonsense.  All Calvinists are Calvinists who follow a doctrine compiled by demons and their pope is John Calvin a murderer of men, women and children.

Moriel Ministries says,

“While Moriel and Jacob Prasch are not Calvinistic and do not accept unconditional “Once Saved Always Saved” (as neither did John Wesley), a distinction must be made between moderate Calvinists and extreme ones.  While we do not agree with John MacArthur on a few issues (his interpretation of eternal security and Cessationism), most of his ministry is otherwise very good.”  [Emphasis added] —http://moriel.org/MorielArchive/index.php/discernment/church-issues/aberrational-theology/dan-corner

So Jacob Prasch believes in the 5 points of Calvinism is seems as he only has a problem with his “interpretation of eternal security and Cessationism”.  Jacob Prasch and those at Moriel Ministries love to talk out both sides of their mouth.  They say they are not Calvinists, but they support the doctrine of Calvinism (excluding one or 2 issues) and they support preachers of Calvinism.  For instance Jacob Prasch and Moriel Ministries often quote George Whitefield a Calvinist.

Moriel and Midrash

by Martin Horan – 21/12/2012

Having held a fascination for Jewish theology and philosophy, and read and studied much on these things for about forty-five or so years, I occasionally check out Jewish sites on-line. I especially enjoy the Messianic sites.  It delights me to know that Jews are fulfilling Scripture [Rev 7:4-8] and becoming Christians.   My home is surrounded by Jewish culture-art, music, literature, philosophy etc.  Indeed, I am the editor/compilator of The Little Book of Jewish Wisdom which has been published in six languages.

I also like to contribute in the way of donations and prayers to Jewish-Christian evangelism. So I like to keep informed on what’s going on in in those circles.  I am therefore fascinated, though deeply saddened, by Israel’s present isolation in the world and the explosion of worldwide anti-Semitism. I am fascinated and exited, nevertheless, because these things also verify Bible prophecy, as does Israel’s very existence.

What on earth is Pelagianism?

PelagianismWhat is Pelagianism

Pelagianism views humanity as basically good and morally unaffected by the Fall. It denies the imputation of Adam’s sin, original sin, total depravity, and substitutionary atonement. It simultaneously views man as fundamentally good and in possession of libertarian free will. With regards to salvation, it teaches that man has the ability in and of himself (apart from divine aid) to obey God and earn eternal salvation. Pelagianism is overwhelmingly incompatible with the Bible and was historically opposed by Augustine(354-430), Bishop of Hippo, leading to its condemnation as a heresy at Council of Carthage in 418 A.D. These condemnations were summarily ratified at the Council of Ephesus (A.D. 431).

Discussion

Pelagius was a monk from Britain, whose reputation and theology came into prominence after he went to Rome sometime in the 380’s A.D. The historic Pelagian theological controversy involved the nature of man and the doctrine of original sin.
