The Word of God, to me…

Most people think that the “Word of God” is the Bible, loosely speaking the texts is the divinely inspired writings composed of letters profitable for reproof and correction, written to the brethren who are spiritual Israel. However, more distinctly the “Word of God” is a living word which is found in the hearts of those who follow the Lord God of Israel in their “heart of hearts” – simply because they love Him above all else.

John 10:27-29 (KJV) 27 My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me: 28 And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand. 29 My Father, which gave them me, is greater than all; and no man is able to pluck them out of my Father’s hand.

At this point, (because this is a blog post) most will spiral downward into arguing theology and doctrines: yet that is NOT my point in writing this post today. Rather it is to show that the “Word of God” to me was found in a simple texts written in the 1880’s by J.H. Merryman, called THE UNITED STATES LIFE-SAVING SERVICE.

“The Lord spoke this to me” sometime after nearly drowning in the Surf at Ocean City, MD., nearly in front of the U.S. Life Saving Museum: a short time after serving my time with the U.S. Coast Guard overseas. I was also very interested in the historic maritime trade and working for the Baltimore Maritime Museum, under command of Capt. Robert Cooper of the Lightship Chesapeake. At the time a floating and operating ambassador for Baltimore City – Recreation and Parks.

A true Disciple of the Lord Jesus Christ, will understand that our Lord knows our hearts, and the particulars of our lives which will get our attention! It is NOT simply religion we follow, but a living being who speaks to those who know Him, the Lord Jesus Christ!

The Following is from page 12 of by J.H. Merryman’s book, a passage which very personally helped to grow my walk, in experiencing and walking with Christ.

With Him now, with Him later…

In this article I would really hope to come across as someone who can speak with authority in being with the Lord Jesus Christ as a disciple.

Matthew 24:5 – For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many. Or more directly; what this verse is actually saying is – many will come in my name saying “I am anointed” (the anointed one) Christ, Jesus. And many will be deceived.

So how does one tell who is of the Lord, and who is not? 1 John 4 tells us how… Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world.Hereby know ye the Spirit of God: Every spirit that confesseth that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is of God:And every spirit that confesseth not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is not of God: and this is that spirit of antichrist, whereof ye have heard that it should come; and even now already is it in the world.  In short only by the Holy Spirit proclaiming Christ has come in their flesh, do we tell.

 The sad fact is that most who claimed to be an “anointed one” actually are not, and have never been!  “Systematic theology” has indeed replaced knowing and walking with Christ, even in those who have started with Him, and it is the Lord God who gives people over to strong delusions, who’s hearts are not actually with Him, in Spirit and in truth. Jesus called this the broad road which leads away from the Lord towards death (spiritually) if repentance of heart is not obtained.

Of course it is the Lord who ultimately decides which of the elect have remained in Christ, and who is not. Disciples (Elders) are instructed to be able to identify just who is “in the vine” and who is moving away from it. Then comes reproof and correction of these brethren (for their life’s sake) and of course, false brethren who are to remain outside the fold. This is the correct form of judging, for the health of the body, the being cut off and burnt part, is only the Lord’s decision.

I did not intend to get into a doctrinal study here, supported by Bible, in an attempt to show myself to be right. It is doctrinal debates which post like this often spark intellectual disagreements, and have little value, as the objective should always be to convey truth.


As a young man who was always instructed to find a “good church” I discovered something else instead!

Although highly educated, and robed in his priestly garb, I discovered that most ministers are more of statesmen then that of a disciple. They compromise the truth of God within the scriptures as to not offend those around them. There was an HIV-AIDS discussion concerning this verse: Romans 1:27 and in the same way also the men abandoned the natural function of the woman and burned in their desire toward one another, men with men committing indecent acts and receiving in their own persons the due penalty of their error. A women insisted this could not be speaking about HIV-AIDS as a punishment for Homosexuality, as women (at the time) were not plagued with it as men; yet this is precisely what the verse entailed!  I was stunned that the minister did not pick up on this scriptural fact, and the Bible study decayed into a “none offensive” worthless discussion about a loving, non-judgmental, ear tickling Jesus.

Within me the Holy Spirit of God was screaming heresy, yet no one else in the room seemed to be concerned, or even seemed to grasp the seriousness of these scriptures! It is about that time in my life, that I started recognizing that the status quo of the world, always seemed to take precedence over the scriptures! This is NOT because I was some type of gifted Biblical scholar, rather it was simply the prodding of the Holy Spirit within me, that I could pick up on subtle diversions away from the TRUTH, who is Jesus Christ within me.

I continued to notice in great contrast, that I was continually bothered by the compromise of the laws of God, even in a secular setting.

Much like Abraham Lincoln, I attended, yet never wanted to become an “official member” of any Church, although very much reformed in my thinking at the time. It was not until I got married that I became a member of struggling, and later, a newly planted church. I was “tested” and had most of the gifting’s of spiritual leadership. I was hopeful that I could finally be of service to my Lord. I later received a Deacons position, although I had very much fulfilled the criteria for Elder as well.

This “Church experience” was short-lived however, as I had been mobilized by the Army a couple of years after 911 to send troops and supplies to Iraq, and received orders under Operation Enduring Freedom.


About a year after returning home, I suffered a massive heart attack while in water survival training with my old Army watercraft unit.

Jesus sided shoulder to shoulder with me on that day, who I could feel, and dimly see pushing up next to me. Later as my heart continued to stop, I looked down upon my ambulance in route to the hospital for airlift, with perfect clarity of mind and vision. I was not expected to survive the night.

I later wrote on a blog about my experience of knowing Jesus Christ on this side of eternity, and it was because I was with Him now, that I was directly with Him in death. A book company picked up this blog, and my testimonial. See: https://goo.gl/BL0OAj .

As often done in this world, my testimonial was twisted in referencing Jesus Christ pressing next to me, the main thrust of my testimonial. It is my opinion, that although lip service is given to the Lord Jesus Christ, heaven and supernatural experiences, in actuality children of the Devil want nothing to do with Him! This is plainly spoken about within scripture.

All my experiences in life have been a reflection of the scriptures, albeit I may not know the chapter or verse. In my humble opinion, Churches reverse the order, of making the Lord God subservient to their knowledge scriptures, doctrines and theology, rather than simply following Him in Spirit and in Truth.

And one needn’t be a Bible scholar to notice this, only a son or daughter of the Living Lord God of Israel.

This is surely the reason why so many like to attack us who point out the corruption of what is going on. Why are people so strong in their defence of their chuurrcchh ?

Institutionalized Church

John 4:24 (KJV)

24 God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth.

Most of those who start with the Lord never register that once the body of believer’s accepts those of a different spirit (1 John 4) within their midst, it is just a matter of time until the spirit of antichrist overruns the fellowship.

Satan, the father of lies, seeks to destroy any actual work of God, by “replacement therapy” that is he replaces the spirit of truth, who is Jesus Christ – with a look alike spirit, or false replacement spirit which is religious in nature.

Remember I am speaking about the spiritual dimension here, and not simply doctrinal or intellectual understanding, which is based on the Bible, rather than dependency upon the leading of the Holy Spirit, who is the Truth of God made manifest to the elect, by the atonement of Jesus Christ on the cross.

John 1 (KJV)

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.

The same was in the beginning with God.

All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made.

In him was life; and the life was the light of men.

And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not.

In the beginning was the word – the “Word of God” this is speaking about the Lord himself, obviously to most, so how is it that a printed texts on a page (Scripture) becomes The Word of God, as commonly espoused? That would be impossible as the Bible was not present in the beginning. It is but a record about God, Satan, and humanity, although divinely inspired.

The Bible is but confirmatory to us who stand on “The Rock”, yet it is not “The Rock itself”, that title is only ever given to the Lord Jesus Christ alone.

At this point many will start thinking theologically, even checking my doctrine against the scripture, which is fine, however let me remind you again that I am speaking about the spiritual world, and the ins and outs of spiritual deceptions given by the master of deception, Satan who is intellectually superior to any human being.

So rather than leaning to our own natural understanding, we must instead push in with Christ in Spirit and in Truth!

Rather than becoming mired in thought, I write this post today with the hope the reader will understand why most churches – “all” institutionalized churches eventually, lead towards spiritual death. That’s right, it is because no matter how well-intentioned ministers may be, that (perhaps unknowingly) they have taken on the role of Jesus Christ himself in the hearts of many followers!

This is the “Spirit of Antichrist” which is consistently used of Satan since the death and resurrection of the Lord, beware!
